Slightly odd. Intrigued by creativity. Lover of cheese. Nothing beats a great movie. Few things beat a great book. Lot of things beat working for a living.

Internet, Why Must You Thwart My 90s Horror Night??!!!

Dr. Giggles Succumbs To Apparent Lack Of Connectivity, Pisses Off YouTube.

Well aware that a strong broadband connection is required to stream movies off any of the major video sites, but I’m blaming YouTube tonight for dropping Dr. Giggles more than five times in the first thirty minutes.

Buffering is the Bane of my existence. (Yes, wrong Bane but I wanted an excuse to link to a .gif of Tom Hardy – :-P)

Horrific Wedding Cake.

Wow. I’m not sure what’s more disturbing, the cake or the fact they had it made for their wedding. Pretty awesome either way. Wonder what flavor they are…

Home Sweet Why The Hell Did They Make This Movie

Home Sweet Hell has a lot of great actors, blood and mayhem. Unfortunately it suffers from a deplorable lack of story, complexity and logic.

The cast is great – Katherine Heigl can play crazy pretty damned well (not mention she’s pretty pretty), Jordana Brewster gets nearly fully nude (okay it’s a body double but I don’t care because my imagination is awesome, and Patrick Wilson the razor sharp lead man from Stretch
In support we get Jim Belushi, Kevin Mc “Freakin” Kidd (Dog Soldiers yo!), and A.J. Buckley (Big bad on Justified season 5). No bad, not bad at all. 
So after that we get the usual plotline of – husband cheats, blackmail ensues, wife decides to murder the slut, hilarity I mean cold blooded murder/butcher/mayhem etc. etc. 
Home Sweet Hell is plagued by a litany of problems but the primary one is the lack of empathy for anyone in the movie. Seriously, you can watch great actors do wonders with direction and dialogue all day long but if we don’t give two shits about them by the end of the movie then something failed. 

Do you recommend this movie? 

No. I mean any movie is worth watching once, just don’t pay money to see it. 

Is there nudity? 

Like I said above, Jordana Brewster has a nice body double show off a hairline nipple and a couple a hot ass cheeks. 

To give me an idea of what this movie is like, what can you compare it with? 

Very Bad Things, although VBT is able to pull off the morbid humour with ease compared to Home Sweet Hell.

Where can I watch it? 

Anywhere you don’t have spend your hard earned bills.

Terror In The Aisles (1984) – Fantastic Horror Anthology

Terror Movie Montage

The ultimate collage of popular horror films narrated by scream stars Donald Pleasance and Nancy Allen.

Terror in the Aisles is a fun commentary on why people find scary movies so fun and fulfilling. Featuring scenes from some the most popular and infamous movies from the 60s, 70s, and early 80s the movie deftly edits them together into a thrilling tapestry of murder, mayhem, and madness.

“Why make up horrible things when there is already so much real terror in the world? Perhaps we invent artificial horror, to help us cope with the real ones.” – Donald Pleasance

We love this movie. It certainly has a lot of nostalgia value  but also is a fantastic repository of clips from some of the best and most misremembered horror films from the pre-VHS age. How many of these have YOU seen?
