The Funhouse Massacre (Review)
Interviews, pre-fight breakdowns, trash talking, and monster origin segments round out this ultimate fight of the living dead. He and his female companion, Patricia Welles, must find away to destroy it while also trying to avoid Ricus and his rednecks and an evil government agent named Merchant.
Demi Moore's first film role. After a deranged fan hacks in to determine the house's location, she finds herself in a terrifying fight for her life. A huge, seemingly alien structure has been found jutting out of the earth. But they have their work cut out: It seems the victims' only link is that they all went toes up 48 hours after logging on a site known as feardotcom. Stephen Rea also stars in this gruesome thriller.
The island was idyllic, surrounded by a wide reef, covered in palms and full of birds and other wildlife.
What is my movie? - Item
It was small and totally deserted or so they thought. But when things go missing from their camp site and they discover someone else's footprints in the sand this quickly becomes disturbing as they realize the island has a ghost! Inspired by actual events. Initial tests proved promising, as subjects experienced heightened physical and mental strength and awareness.
Jamie Akerman fled the outbreak -- which killed her mother -- twenty years ago. She now returns with her boyfriend and step-brother to sell the family property. Befriending Eve, Robert stays at the mansion and continues his search for his brother and uncovers a secret cult and a sinister conspiracy.
This is an odd little film as Mark Eden seems to be taking very little seriously besides the need to bed Wetherell, so the core mystery of where the hell is his brother is kind of shoved to the side most of the film as Robert experiences dreams and hallucinations of bizarre rituals and cult-like sacrifices.
The confused intent of Robert makes the film feel less crucial and dire as the hallucinogenic dreams would suggest, so mixing these two elements of the film make it feel a bit uneven in tone.
With the world of cinema just recently losing the actor, it was a treat to see him in a role I was not so familiar with. As always, Lee commands every scene he is in and plays the mystery of whether or not he is behind the missing brother very well.
Still his presence adds heft to a rather light plot and seeing Lee and Karloff riffing off of one another is worth seeking this film out alone. These scenes, which are meant to be out of this world, come off as rather heavy handed in some cases and unintentionally hilarious in others especially the leather speedo wearing antler guy who seems to love to show his ass to the camera.
When they stumble across a magic lamp hidden in the wall of her room after killing the old broad with an axe and trashing the place, one of them rubs the lamp just like in the movies! So death comes in the form of floating spears, snakes, a puppeteered mummy corpse, a ceiling fan, and last but not least a big rubber model of a genie which is barely articulated and moves like a rubber model because it is a rubber model.
The most frightening thing in the film is the fact that the two bullies of the film are over-the-top racist by calling their African American principal the N-word and then raping an African American woman later on. I wish KRUEL had that much interest in it, but instead of getting to the root of clourophobia or any scares at all, there are other areas the film prefers to focus on and sadly, that makes for one boring and by the numbers movie.
Kierney Nelson plays Jo, a young woman going through young woman problems. In the opening moments of the film she finds out her boyfriend Ben the mumbling Dakota Morrissiey cheated on her, her mom is on her about staying out late, and to make matters worse, now the clown driving an ice cream truck swipes the kid she is babysitting right from under her nose while she is arguing with her boyfriend.
Chinn is waiting for them and has plans of his own for Jo. The main problem with this film is that the focus is on the wrong thing. In trying so hard to make the viewer invested in the characters in peril namely Jo and Ben by focusing on them, this film forgets to add in any scary or tense moments.
Somewhere in KRUEL is a solid little story about a scary clown, an ice cream truck, and a little boy. The story centers on a group of kids who go into the woods for a camping trip to celebrate the anniversary of a mass murder of a family years before. Gruesome, yes, and not really cause for celebration, but the killer in the woods feels the same way as evidenced by the way he eviscerates them one by one.
The bad first—there is absolutely no reason for these kids to be together as most of them loathe one another. One of the campers used to date another and that camper brought his new girlfriend. There is not rational explanation this group would all be going to the same place and with everyone fighting with one another, it really makes all of the campers unlikable from the get go.
I guess in this type of movie, which basically is a highlight reel of one gory Jason Voorhees like kill after another, we are supposed to root for the kids to die, but if you see any of the original slasher films, what made them stand out is that you actually rooted for the kids to live. Here, we want them to die, and thankfully, most of them do. While the motivations of the killer range from pretty vague to nonsensical as he kills some on the spot while he chains up and tortures others for no real reason other than to do so, the kills themselves are actually pretty gruesome and horrifying.
The killer, who as I said is the Jason Voorhees type and even wears a bag over his face like Jason in F13Part2, is definitely PO-ed, at something and his anger and rage is palpable in his gratuitous kills. Josh Jeremiah Watkins has loads of both potential and problems, but little drive to do anything about it save for invest his time and energy in a blog that reviews new computer apps.
Josh happens upon an app called I-LIVED, which promises to make any goal in your life come true and testing out the app himself, he finds that things start to turn around for him.
He meets a new girl, gets tons of new viewers on his site, and even has the ear of some corporate backers promising lots of money. But when Josh deactivates the app and stops following its self help directions, things begin to fall apart and Josh realizes that the app has a much more diabolical intention under its seemingly innocent exterior. Now, in order to get back the girl, the viewers, and the money, he must do horrible, horrible things.
So while the lead up to the switch between the positive aspects of the app and the more evil intentions is good, it feels a bit overlong and makes for a rather quick descent into horror. Franck Khalfoun does show that he is a capable director he did this already in the amazing MANIAC remakebut something feels off with the horror here and it makes for a much less effective film.
Some of the decisions made by the director are downright lame in terms of execution of scares as well as fleshing out the character of Josh. The film also has quite a few well choreographed and patient scares, though they lack the intensity and creativity that McCarthy exhibited in the original. What worked so well in the original THE PACT was that there were definite supernatural elements at play, but there was a real world threat as well.
In THE PACT 2, all of that gets rather muddy, making the viewer work harder to distinguish between the supernatural and crime elements. Recently played at the San Diego Comic Con! Cast and crew will be present.
When the bodies start piling up, the girls find themselves hip deep in local ghost stories that threaten to tear the trio apart. Centering on a Kumari statue of gold the girls find in their rental home, the ghost story begins as they find out the gold statue houses the bones of a vengeful spirit. Steeping this story in ancient Thailand mythology makes for a different type of curse than the haunted abodes we often see in America and European haunted home films. On top of that, James Cullen Bressack does a great job of setting up and delivering some actually scary scenes.
From the get go, as the trio of girls wander into what seems to be a dangerous situation, Bressack does a great job of pulling the rug out from under the viewer at least it worked for me ; challenging expectations and flipping the script more than once.
On top of the unexpected turns, the actual scares are pretty damn effective. Sure this little creepy girl is just a gold plated version of THE GRUDGE girl, but the shimmering body paint on the monster does make for another unique aspect and the way Bressack frames her amps up those scares in key scenes.
Clunky dialog and rough deliveries of said dialog made me roll my eyes from time to time. The film wraps up a little too cleanly, betraying the rules that were set before and making things somewhat confusing at the end.
