As Sam and Frodo enter Mordor, the final battle for Middle Earth begins.
The third part of the epic Lord Of The Rings trilogy. But unfortunately for me, this movie just isn't as good as the preceding two chapters. All facets of the production have been taken to their limits yet again . The story is very strong for the first half of the movie, but as things progress, the CGI takes over and the battle sequences just get silly. The plot itself does move away a little from the original text towards the end, but it is quite understandable why certain parts was not filmed. Plus, there a moments that you think the the films has ended, and then it carries on which does get quite annoying the third time it happens as things just begin to drag on. In the end, the Lord Of The Rings trilogy is an amazing piece of cinema that will remain a classic piece of work, but I will always feel that this entry is nowhere as strong as the proceeding two, which is a shame for the finale.
After being re-animated by his demon minions, Radu chases after newly-turned vampire Michelle as she escapes to Bucharest with the Bloodstone.
Taking place directly after the events of the first movie, 'Bloodstone' is just as good as (if not slightly better than) it's predecessor. The story, acting and production values are improved, but the movie still keeps it's classical feel. As the single returning cast member, Anders Hove reprises his role as Radu well, and the rest of the characters (especially the creepy 'Mother') help the story move along nicely. The 'next chapter' style works just as well, and the abrupt ending makes you want to know what happens next. A fine sequel that shows how good low-budget horror film-making was in the 90's.
When a group of adventurers drop to the depths of the ocean and discover a mythical civilization, they soon realise that things are not safe as they thought.
This is one of those movies that a certain generation of people have grown up with, and when you watch it now it really isn't as bad as you remember. The story takes hokum to a whole new level and mixes every genre cliche possible, but somehow it comes up with a quite enjoyable story. The acting manages to take cheesy to whole new levels, and Doug McClure chews the scenery whenever he possibly can. The special effects are spectacularly bad, with some amazing 'men in rubber suits' monsters and liberal usage of poor blue screening - but in an odd way it just adds to the overall tone. All in all, this is not really a good movie, but if you are of a certain age, it will always have a special place on your heart.
Two kids unleash a torrent of demonic forces when they disturb a hole left by the removal of a storm-damaged tree.
Here we have a bit of a weird film that really doesn't know where it is going as it tries so hard to be a monster laden horror movie, but as you watch it you can't help but have the feeling that you are in fact watching a kid's fantasy movie. The story (even though well written) is pretty bulk standard and offers no surprises. The acting is more than competent, and it is good to see how talented Stephen Dorff was , even at an early age. The special effects are well handled , but do look quite dated now. The gore is incredibly minimal, but the little you do see is very well executed. As i have said earlier, though a good film, The Gate just seems to find trouble working out what genre it wants to be in, the gore and monster tells the viewer that it is a horror film, but it just feels too nicey-nicey in a lot of places.
When a police investigation takes place investigating a missing actor, the inspector in charge soon discovers that the house where the actor lived may be to blame.
I do love a good horror anthology movie, and The House That Dripped Blood is a fine example comprising of four stories and a linking plot. The first three stories are all very well made, all with excellent plots (that include madmen, wax museums and freaky children) that are all pure old school British horror, and star some of the genre greats. The fourth story is a bit of a let down as it's campiness does not suit the tone of the movie, and (even though he was a great actor) Jon Pertwee makes the most unconvincing vampire ever. The blood-letting is non-existent, but it suits the old school feel of the film which prefers to be more eerie than gory. All in all this is a great movie, and a majority of the stories still hold up well today, and if you like a good retro feeling anthology movie that stars some of the greats of the industry, then this is a good example to watch.
