FILMS YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU NEEDED TO SEE 666

Posted in Films You Didn't Know You Need To See, Horror with tags , , , , , on October 29, 2010 by Kaiderman

Looking for a cool Horror movie to see on Halloween night? Well, then you’ve come to the right place! How cool is it that the 6th (or 666) edition of FILMS YOU DIDN’T KNOW… fell on Halloween? I know, right? For those of you guys and gores new to the site, here’s the rundown on how this post works…

There are several movies out there that don’t necessarily get the same recognition or promotion as others. Films that at times can be quite good. Films that are currently collecting dust in the “Favorites” aisle at your local video store. We here at THE LIST have taken it upon ourselves to bring these films to the forefront and present you, the movie going public, a list of FILMS YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU NEEDED TO SEE.

This time around, we are presenting you with the all horror edition to help with some spooky suggestions for your Halloween viewing pleasure. To help me out this time around, I’ve recruited the following:

Terri from GOREGIRL’S DUNGEON: The queen of gore serves up her 2nd contribution to these posts.
Andy from FANDANGO GROOVERS MOVIE BLOG: Also a repeat contributor with a unique spin for this outting.
Meredith Carter from M. CARTER AT THE MOVIES: Returns fresh off an October Horror Marathon.
Jason
from INVASION OF THE B-MOVIES: The King of all things “B”.
And to kick things off, your friendly neighborhood…

KAIDERMAN:

TRICK ‘r TREAT (2007).

If Halloween (the movie) is the Miracle on 34th Street of Halloween (the holiday) then Trick ‘r Treat is easily the Christmas Story of the fall and should be watched everytime October 31st roles around to get in the mood for the spookiest of holidays. Told very much in the vein of the old Creepshow films, this little flick tells 4 intertwining stories, set at Halloween, that encompasses everything that makes Halloween great: Werewolves, Vampires, Serial Killers, Urban Legends, Ghost Stories and creepy little monsters with potato sacks on their head. Also, a good watch for people who don’t handle Horror too well.

FEAST (2005).

You guys remember that whole Project Greenlight thing where Ben Affleck and Matt Damon had a show on Bravo to give unknowns a chance to write and direct their own projects while Bravo made a TV show chronicling the entire process? Don’t feel bad… not many do. However, their last outting produced a fun film to watch starring Balthazar Getty, Henry Rollins, Jason Mewes and a smoking hot Krista Allen as, quite simply, patrons locked in a bar fending off genetically mutated animal monsters. Very tongue-in-cheek and fun to watch… spawned a few sequels as well! Continue reading

I have been invited by ANDY from THE FANDANGO GROOVERS MOVIE BLOG and HEATHER from MOVIE MOBSTERS have invited me back for a 2nd time to take part in their discussion of films that have influenced a genre (take that M. CARTER). This time around the focus is THE FINAL FRONTIER… and I got the Grand Daddy of them all:

“A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…” Continue reading

GROOVERS & MOBSTERS PRESENT: GANGSTER MOVIES

“Yes, London. You know: fish, chips, cup ‘o tea, bad food, worse weather, Mary fucking Poppins… LONDON.”

As you know, THE LIST doesn’t typically do reviews… we do LISTS… hence the name… duh!

However, when I was asked by Heather (from MOVIE MOBSTERS) and Andy (from FANDANGO GROOVERS MOVIE BLOG) to be a part of their new ongoing monthly series that looks at different film genres, I couldn’t resist. The idea was to pick a film from a particular genre, in this case Gangster films, and give a short review coupled with thoughts on how the film had impacted it’s particular genre. While reviews bore me to tears to write (mainly cuz I suck at them), the idea of looking how a film could influence a genre as a whole sounded very interesting. So, since most of the classics were taken, I decided to focus on a more recent entry into the world of Gangster movies. I present you with my choice: SNATCH (2000). Continue reading
