I am a Scorpio. I enjoy long walks on the beach, drinking copious amounts of alcohol, and men in hockey masks. In my spare time I work to foil the plans of my arch nemesis, utilize my eight finger discount, and lecture from my soapbox about social injustices. I do not tolerate fools or like people who make Walmart plural.
I judge people who are missing more teeth than they have, unless they are old. I would like to someday be the scary old woman in the neighborhood that all the children are afraid of, however I will be misunderstood and actually a sweet old lady turned bitter by the disappointments of this cruel, cruel life.
I will have made my vast wealth telling fortunes under the alias the Mad Madame Mim and selling t-shirts in tourist destinations that say “Life isn’t always flowers and sausages”.
I love scary movies, it isn't a secret. My friend, Jessica, and I go to see most of the horror films released in the theater so I like to stay on top of what is coming out. For August is looks like there are three scary movies.
Synopsis from IMDB- Teen survivors of a suspension-bridge collapse soon begin to fear that there's no way you can cheat Death.
Verdict: Will not be seeing it. I watched and liked the first movie, but I didn't even watch the other ones. Sometimes Hollywood should just let a good thing be a good thing and not beat it into the ground. (See Saw)
Synopsis from IMDB-Teenager Charley Brewster (Yelchin) guesses that his new neighbor Jerry Dandrige (Farrell) is a vampire responsible for a string of recent deaths. When no one he knows believes him, he enlists Peter Vincent (Tennant), the opportunistic host of his favorite TV show, to help him take down Jerry and his guardian.
Verdict: Hell yeah. I remember the old one fondly but recently rewatched it and there is definitely room for improvement. Here's what the new version has going for it. 1. Exponentially hotter vampire. Colin Ferrell vs. Chris Sarandon = no comparison. 2. Evil is played by McLovin'. Enough said. 3. The effects HAVE to be better. 4. Charley Brewster's girl friend does look like a boy. 5. Peter Vincent is played by Dr. Who.
Synopsis on IMDB-A young girl (Madison) sent to live with her father (Pearce) and his new girlfriend (Holmes) discovers creatures in her new home who want to claim her as one of their own.
Verdict- When I heard a scary movie with Katie Holmes was coming out, I was like "Pfft, lame". Then I saw Guillermo Del Toro was the director, and I became more interested. Then I watched the creepy ass preview and I have been sold. It looks like solid horror film which aren't easy to come by these days. This movie is highly anticipated for me.
What movies are you looking forward to this month?
