Documentary horror movie list 80s,zombie survival kit gift for boyfriend,national geographic documentary journey edge universe - Review

A movie that came almost out of nowhere and completely knocked me off my feet: "Here Comes The Devil", the newest film of prolific Argentinian horror director Adrian Garcia Bogliano, a ravishing and breathtaking horror-drama about two kids who disappeared during a family trip and reappeared as completely different persons.
In terms of atmosphere and style, it surely is the creepiest and most unsettling movie I've seen all year. As a massive fan of Peter Weir's "Picnic at Hanging Rock", I was delighted to see many references to this incredible movie: close-ups of scary-looking rock formations and sweaty faces, people climbing onto hills, people disappearing into crevices.
No, "The Lords of Salem" isn't as iconic as "Corpses" and "Rejects",and it actually doesn't want to be something like that.
Ok, I admit the movie is a mess and far from being perfect, but it's such a well-directed and awesome-looking mess, it never bored me and kept me glued to the screen over the entire 100 minutes, thanks to some marvellous pacing, excellent editing, loads of brilliantly compelling atmosphere, a couple of cool characters, and shitloads of eye-popping images.
Sheri Moon Zombie still isn't an 'amazing' actress, but her performance here as Heidi Hawthorne (cool name!) is excellent and definitely her best one so far.
Bruce Davison is super-cool and highly sympathetic, Ken Foree is great fun, and Jeff Daniel Phillips reminded me a lot of Noah Taylor in "Red White & Blue".
I enjoyed the performances of super-handsome Martin Copping as cool Zombie Hunter (and I loved hearing him repeating the words 'Stone cold silence'), hot chick Jade Regier as badass "Fast Lane Debbie", and of course, Danny Trejo as zombie-killing priest "Jesus" - though he only appears in a handful scenes and delivers more of a paycheck performance.
Michael Stephenson might not be the greatest actor on Earth ("A double-decker Bologna sandwich!"), but he's definitely a fantastic documentary filmmaker and I have a slight feeling that he totally could be something like the Michael Moore of Horror. In a slow but steady and unboring pace, Stephenson gives us an intriguing in-depth look into the households of [1] the Bariteau family who work hard to make their incredible Halloween decoration look as perfect and professional as possible, [2] the Souza family who work equally hard, but in a cooler and more easygoing way, and [3] the enthusiastic father-and-son-team Matt and Rick Brodeur who feel more like two brothers or two old friends. Beautifully filmed and accompanied with a lovely score by Bobby Tahouri ("Echelon Conspiracy"), we get to see three heartwarming portraits of people who give everything to make their idea of Halloween as awesome and impressive as possible. The movie starts out with a young couple shooting a documentary in the town of "Willow Creek", interviewing the inhabitants about the infamous Patterson-Gimlin-incident, and ends with them spending the night in the forests near Bluff Creek where Bigfoot was supposedly filmed in 1967. Style and structure of "Willow Creek" reminded me a lot of found footage classic "The Blair Witch Project", at times it even felt like a tribute, though IMO it's a much more thrilling, much more entertaining and WAY scarier film, thanks to the 2 lovely and extremely believable main characters, wonderfully played by Alexie Gilmore and Bryce Johnson, Goldthwait's powerful direction, the slow but brilliantly intense build-up, and an almost 20-minute-long sequence where we get to see the couple lying in their tent, getting freaked out by bizarre noises and vocalisations - a sequence that also totally scared the shit out of me.
The ending is a bit weird, but it will stay with you long after you've left the cinema.To me, "Willow Creek" is one of the biggest surprises of 2013.


What's even worse is the fact that we never get a clear look on the monsters, due to super-quick jump cuts, harsh editing and dizzy-making camera effects - and all because the filmmakers desperately tried to hide the cheap and ugly-looking special effects.This 'technique' reminded me a lot of Irish creature feature "Isolation" which showed its main monster, a mutated cow-fetus, in a similarly dissatisfying way - but while "Isolation" was able to compensate the cheap effects by focussing on creepy locations and interesting characters, "Blutgletscher" fully fails by coming off as unintentionally laughable, and even looking unfinished at times. Gore and make-up effects look ace, the jump scares are highly effective, and I totally dug the scene where a swarm of flies emerged from one victim's shoulder. The acting ranges from pretty good (Gerhard Liebmann, Michael Fuith) to pretty bad (Hille Beseler, Wolfgang Pampel). I'll try to keep you updated with fresh reviews and updates from the festival, like I did last year.
As I mentioned above, the movie starts out really hilarious, and the first 25-30 minutes are funny as hell, thanks to many freaking amusing scenes and a few wonderfully absurd moments - but then, it suddeny starts to get boring and unfunny, repetitive and predictable. It's a bizarre and intimidating trip into the minds of two parents who slowly lose control of their lifes, desperately trying to find out what happened to their kids, trying to get back on track, but eventually they only sink deeper and deeper into a quicksand-like morass of guilt, shame and despair. Massive thanks to Ernesto Herrera's ("Penumbra") insanely impressive cinematography that perfectly captures the bizarre mood of the desolate-looking Tijuana settings, and also to Julio Pillado's weird but marvellous and highly effective music. In a nutshell: it's a stunning-looking homage to oldschool horror, though it's gladly NOT retro for the sake of being retro (like Ti West's slightly similar-themed "House of the Devil").
The montage at the end with the masturbating priests and the naked, animal-masked ladies is mindblowing! Very likable, very believable, very intriguing - and omg, she stills looks sooo fucking hot, maybe even hotter than in her Firefly years. In fact, "Zombie Hunter" could be described as Robert Rodriguez fan-fiction, written and directed by a hardcore Rodriguez fan who seems to be obsessed with films like "Machete" or "Planet Terror". Also, some ok gore effects and a nice soundtrack, but nothing we haven't seen or heard before.
His debut documentary "Best Worst Movie" was a wonderful document about the fans of, and the 'actors' who starred in "Troll 2". There's lots of fun and laughter, but also lots of drama and sadness, due to the pressure and stress they all go through during October, but in the end we can see that it's all worth it because no matter how much blood, sweat and tears they shed, the people who visit their insanely impressive 'haunted houses" have a fantastic and super-scary time, and give their 'creators' the feeling they've done something great and important, something that is worth dedicating your life to.


After decades of awful rubbish like "Snowbeast" or "The Curse of Bigfoot", Bobcat Goldthwait, director of the excellent "God Bless America", comes along as the very first filmmaker who is fully able to make a movie about the Sasquatch, that is not dumb or laughable or utter trash. It's probably the cheesiest tagline for an Austrian film ever, but it sounds fun and it whets your interest. The dialogue is often way too stilted, several scenes are far too boring, far too tedious (the scene where they put a dog down is sooo fucking long, it's frustrating), and the ending is just meh. The movie's weird humor gets a bit annoying, and I slightly got the feeling that this would have worked better as a short film.
His two "Halloween" flicks were rubbish and I'm still pissed about both of them - but now after seeing "The Lords of Salem" (AND after listening to his latest really badass album), I forgive him. It's Rob Zombie's love letter to the Satan-themed, Witchcraft-themed horror films of the 60s and 70s, as well as to 'artsy' European horror stuff of that time. His follow-up documentary "The American Scream" follows 3 Massachusettsan families who dedicate their lives to the celebration of Halloween - and omg, I loved it. There's one scene where we get to see two guys performing a bloody operation which is sooo long and tedious, it's rather frustrating.
This movie was made for big screens and loud speakers, made to blow the audience's minds away with its striking images and powerful sounds. This is an unexpectedly great, wonderfully nostalgic and absolutely mesmerizing horror film.
The story is non-existent, the script is unfinished and crammed with gaping plot holes; there's nothing new, nothing original, nothing surprising - and nothing makes sense. Throughout watching, there were many times where I caught myself staring at the screen with a big fat smile on my face.
