Annabelle movie review

Last week I saw Annabelle, the much anticipated prequel follow up, to the wildly successful horror film, The Conjuring. This film features the twist demonic doll that was featured in The Conjuring film and loosely inspired Chucky and the Child's Play films. Backstory of the film is set in the 1960s, with a young married couple living in California.

 Wife Mia loves dolls, Husband John buys pregnant wife doll that happens to be Annabelle, which is a doll possessed, and all hell brakes loose. Mia and John experience a home invasion by two members of a Satanic cult. A female cult member stabs Mia in the stomach just as the police arrive and is shot, bleeding onto the Annabelle doll as she dies. The married couple and baby survives and is born fine. However, there is a deep supernatural uneasiness lurking underneath the surface, and the couple moves homes after Mia begins to experience paranormal events she believes are linked to the attack. James Wan scares are highly effective in Anabelle especially seeing them on the big giant screen at the Drive Inn. "Shop 2CoolGhouls for Halloween"

  The scene in the basement and the elevator creeps me out the most without giving to much away. Overall Anabelle wasn't as good as The Conjuring but still good Halloween horror flick to see on a Saturday night.

Michael Myers Halloween Deluxe Mask Review

I just got the Rubies Costume's version of Michael Myers Halloween Deluxe Mask thats new for 2014. Not to be confused with the masks put out by Trick or Treat Studios, Rubies has the license for the first Halloween film from 1978. I have to say for a mask under $50 dollars its not bad.

The mask has sewn in rooted hair, the mask has cheek bone indentations with eye and mouth openings.
Sides have molded ears and looks similar to the original mask based on the film.

The back has perferated opening. Overall this mask doesnt compare with the Trick or Treat Studios level of quality but for under $50 its a good quality mask. #MonthOfMyers #Halloween

Horror Shows on TV

The Horror genre has mainly been set for movie theaters, but throughout the years, there has been some cool horror based TV shows. Its seems that not only was the 1980's a goldmine for fans of horror films, but also, for horror on TV.

One of my favorites was Tales from the Darkside, that was created by horror movie icon George Andrew Romero. It ran from 1984 to 1988 and featured 89 30 min episodes in the four years it ran.

The intro of the show used to scare me as a child but drew me in at the same time


I think my favorite all time episode was Halloween Candy where this grumpy older man gets some payback for being mean to trick or treaters on Halloween

Another lesser known Horror show was Werewolf that aired in Fox TV from 1987 to 1988 it produced 28, 30 min episodes. It featured one of the coolest Werewolf transformations I've seen

Next is Freddy's Nightmares which was riding the wave of success of the A Nightmare on Elm Street films
It ran from 1988 to 1990 which produced 44 hour long episodes. It featured Freddy's sarcastic humor it which he would introduce a different episode each week it aired.

 





Next is Monsters which carried the same tradition of Tales of the Darkside different stories but this show stayed within the Horror genre. I remember the intro sort of mocking suburbia with the monster family all sitting at home watching The Monster TV show. This show also ran from 1988 to 1990 and produced 72, 30 min episodes.


The best show of them all and my personal favorite was Tales from the Crypt. This show ran from 1989 to 1996 on HBO and spawned several movies, a cartoon series, and lots of merchandise.


Tales from the Crypt had one of the coolest intros

Many of these shows still run on the Chiller channel http://www.chillertv.com/ if you have cable or satellite TV

as a bonus here is a episode of the Tales from the Cryptkeeper Cartoon

As Above So Below Review

I saw the new As Above So Below horror suspense film last Saturday night. Given all the trailers I saw for the film, I was pumped to see it. Having watched it, it came off like a twisted version of Goonies, but with a ending that didn't seem to make sense.
Film starts out with a student who wants to find a healing stone in the city of the dead, also known as the catacomb's of Paris where at one time, was where the people in Paris, France buried the dead. She eventually gathers a friend, and group of tunnel experts, to uncover the secret of the tunnels in the catacomb's.  "SHOP Halloween at 2CoolGhouls"

Eventually all hell breaks loose when the team lose their way in those dark creepy tunnels, and the undead come alive and wreck havoc on the team of tunnel explorers.

Members of the team find the stone, and it used to revive some from near death, while others end up not so lucky.

The ending was lackluster, and I wasn't a fan of all the shaky film camera angles that make you nausea after seeing them too much. Overall the set designs were creepy, and it was a pretty unique film. I would watch again on Netflix.
