I had heard about this one for awhile and was really impressed with the level of tension used between the three characters. It had me riveted through the whole thing, but the end was kind of disappointing. I would still recommend this one though.
I love the Hammer horror movies. This was one of their last ones to be put out in 1974. Peter Cushing is always awesome as Dr. Frankenstein. The monster that he creates is played by David Prowse, who will go on to play Darth Vader in Star Wars. This one is not as good as Curse of Frankenstein but it has it's moments and it has a such a sitcom type ending.
I guess it's a matter of taste, but I liked the movie. That's because I am already familiar with the Troma movies and have already accepted that it will be really stupid. It's a ridiculous movie, but it's so over the top that its funny. That's the point. I guess it's a love or hate kind of thing.
I've always given Umberto Lenzi's films a chance for some reason, but to this day, I have yet to see a movie that I actually liked. This one is one of the worst ones. Terrible acting, terrible dialogue and delivery and it seems to rely heavily on locations like a lot of the Italian movies of the 1980s. The storyline is really kind of choppy and thrown together and the zombies look bad.
I was expecting a lot more from the writer of The Last Emperor. The dialogue and the delivery of the dialogue is terrible. The twist in the middle of the movie just didn't make sense to me and it seemed pretentious. Like it thought it was much more clever than it actually was.
Not the best in the series. Peter Cushing is great as usual and even with Hammer's top director Terence Fisher, the movie is hokey and doesn't make sense.
When I heard it was about a girls boarding girls, I thought it would be boring except for drooling over Eva Green, but in the end, it was quite strange and enjoyable especially Eva Green.
This was a pretty sleazy movie trying to cash in on the giallo craze of the 1970s. Some scenes are so sleazy that they're quite funny. At times it comes off very misogynistic especially the main character, but like many of these movies, they're trashy but kind of flat.
I was pretty impressed with this one. Very dialogue driven between a small group of actors. I was not surprised when I found out Neil LaBute was a producer. There is also some great music n the soundtrack.
I liked this movie. It's pretty minimalistic when you think about it with only two consistent characters. It gets pretty intense at times. Pretty good performances throughout.
As a kid, I hated Charles Bronson movies. I thought they were boring and that he couldn't act. Now, I really like both him and his movies. He's really understated and hardly talks and it just works really well for his characters. These were called action films, but they're so much better than what we would call action these days. This isn't the best Bronson film, but he was still good, as opposed to Jan Michael Vincent, who was just awful.
This movie is tied with Phantom of the Paradise as my favourite Brian De Palma movie. One major thing in common? The great William Finley. That guy is awesome. He can be creepy then physically comedic and then suddenly very sinister. The story is really strange and rife with psychological weirdness with a great music score by Bernard Hermann. If I was to suggest a introduction to De Palma, I would probably start with this movie.
When I heard this was going to be remade, I was very angry because I am a huge fan of the original. As remakes go, this one didn't have the budget of the big Hollywood remakes, which I think works in its favour, but it still seemed unnecessary because it was basically the same as the original. I had heard that it was a new interpretation of the story, but it wasn't really.
I had been wanting to see this movie for a long time. I had seen the remake from John Carpenter and, in spite of being a big fan of his, it was horrible. This one was campy, but it worked much more. I have not read the novel by John Wyndham but may check it out as well as the sequel Children of the Damned.
People think this is a crazy movie. Imagine what the actual events were like. I have liked all the Alex Cox movies I have seen and this one is a complete condemnation of the U.S. insurrection in Nicaragua in the 1980s. The attitude of the main character is so delusional that it's outrageous. Ed Harris is great here. Not many movies made this way now.
This was a very strange movie and I can tell why it has a cult following. I also heard that the director used to make S&M films. I can see that as well. I did think it was funny that the movie is in English with German actors who would all be much more comfortable speaking in German. Overall, I enjoyed it. It had a real aura of strangeness. It reminded me of something like Pin and seemed include very much by Georges Franju's Eyes Without A Face. I would watch it again.
Not a bad movie. Christopher Lee is always good and Jess Franco has so many movie and so many that suck that it's nice when you find a passable one. It wouldn't make me seek out another fu manchu movie (and I've seen one of the earlier ones with Boris Karloff) but I wouldn't turn it away. Really bad fight choreography by the way.
It wasn't bad. I always want to sees horror story set in a western backdrop. It was interesting that 3 actors who were all on Lost were in this movie. For a straight to DVD movie, it was pretty good but the acting could have been better and the creatures looked obviously computer generated. I always have that problem with creatures. The CGI always makes them look fake and I would rather not see them. I think they're scarier then.
I guess this movie is following in the footsteps of Sunset Boulevard as an attack on the Hollywood studio system. It, like it's predecessor still holds up today. Jack Palance is great, but I think I liked Rod Steiger's method acting the best. It's a little ham-handed sometimes but still pretty good.
I thought it was amusing enough. Lots of great actors in it, but I did feel that it should have been funnier with storyline it had. Played it a little too safe.
