New “Halloween” movie trailer is out… Michael Myers is back and so is the original Laurie Strode…

The new “Halloween” movie trailer dropped this week and I got goosebumps watching it! Looks fucking awesome, I would say! I’m a huge Halloween fan. I’ve seen all of the movies… even the two Rob Zombie “Halloween” films.

Some of you may ask, why was this new movie made??? Well, John Carpenter always had a pure dislike for the sequels that came after the original Halloween and if you do a little google research, Carpenter had some negative things to say about Rob Zombie’s two “Halloween” films. The studio Blumhouse/Miramax were in development of a new Halloween film and they brought John Carpenter in to help out with the script some. John Carpenter also scored the music for the new movie as well. Carpenter didn’t like all the other Halloween movies and he wanted Michael Myers to be more frightening than the Rob Zombie version.

So this film wants to ignore everything else about Halloween (sequels/remakes) and this new film is going to be a direct sequel of the Carpenter’s 1978 original. This means that Jamie Lee Curtis is back as Laurie Strode and Nick Castle is back as Michael Myers.

In this trailer, I loved how they honored Dr. Loomis by showing a drawing of him so that was a nice tribute to Donald Pleasance. Just to remind you, Donald Pleasance passed away in 1995 so obviously he won’t be able to come back, but I’m sure he gets mentioned a lot and I’m pretty sure there might be a few Dr. Loomis flashbacks from the original movie.

I’m excited for this film and I can’t wait. As long as John Carpenter was involved with this film, I’m sure it’ll be really good. Hopefully this movie does well in the box office and I’m sure it will. It could be a box office smash.

Jamie Lee Curtis will reprise her role as Laurie Strode for the fifth and final time in new “Halloween” movie…

There have been a new Halloween movie in the works for a long while now. It has been announced last year by Miramax and Blumhouse studios with John Carpenter executive producing the film. The new Halloween film will not be a reboot, and it will not have anything to do with the Rob Zombie films at all. In fact, the new Halloween film will be a continuation of the original series. This will be the 9th Halloween film that will continue after Halloween: Resurrection (released in 2002). The new film will be directed by David Gordon Green. Jamie Lee Curtis is also set to reprise her role as Laurie Strode for the fifth and last time as this will be the final film of the original series.

Interesting. Wondering how this is all gonna end? Will Michael Myers finally be dead once and for all or will Laurie Strode get killed off? This is horror so anything is possible. Maybe neither one will happen, and they could come up with a different ending that will shock people.

Will the new Halloween movie use the main theme for the opening title? They probably will. I really do hope John Carpenter will score the music for the film as well ’cause that would be awesome.

I have seen all the Halloween movies, even the two Rob Zombie films he did. They can make as many Halloween films as they please but nothing will top the first one. The first one is a classic. That film I’ll never get tired of watching over and over again; although, I do think Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers would have to be the best one of the sequels.

Shameful… Nicki Minaj makes fun of handicap person in a wheelchair…

Nicki Minaj is dressed up as a witch or whatever and she’s walking through a hallway with a group of people. She’s just laughing with her group of friends and she’s just points her fake magic wand at someone on a scooter and people think the person on the scooter might be a handicap person.

http://www.ijreview.com/2015/11/460502-pop-star-under-fire-after-video-shows-her-doing-something-disgusting-to-disabled-person/?author=rm&utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=owned&utm_campaign=celebrity&utm_term=ijamerica

Nicki responds and claims the person on the wheelchair was her friend and the person wasn’t handicap.

http://www.tmz.com/2015/11/01/nicki-minaj-wheelchair-wand-walk/

Well, she’s obviously pretty wasted and hammered. She probably had a bit too much to drink. Whether that was a handicap person or not, it was still done in bad taste though ’cause it makes fun of other handicap people.

Nicki Minaj is a dumb ho anyway. Look at her… walking around with her big boobs (aka breast implants). That’s the thing with these celebrity women. They’re full of breast implants and plastic surgery and they walk around thinking they’re hot stuff. The question you have to ask is, would I bang a woman like that? A plastic barbie doll? No thank you. I don’t think I’d sleep with a woman with breast implants at all. Those kind of women turn me off. I’ll take a natural woman anyday, thanks!

Was the baby dressed as the Pope a plant by the White House themselves? Yep, I’m calling it…

Media is going off about some baby being dressed as the Pope at the disastrous White House trick or treat party. I think it’s a plant by the White House themselves. The White House planted the Pope baby there just so the liberal media can have something to jerk themselves off about. They just want liberals going “Aaawwww look at Obama with the cute baby dressed as the Pope”. Blech… sickening. I mean, who in the right mind would dress a baby as the Pope? Pretty stupid if you ask me. I don’t think any parent would. I bet the White House secretly came up with that idea.

I know the White House has Halloween Trick or Treat celebrations for the public each year but this year is the worst of them.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3297801/Toddler-dressed-Pope-wins-best-costume-prize-Obama-s-White-House-Halloween-President-Lady-s-costumes.html

I’m sure liberals are going, “Aaaawwww, look at Obama, he’s so great with the kids”. Of course he is great with kids. Why? It’s because he’s a very feminine guy. He thinks and acts like a woman since he’s a closeted homosexual. He’s pretending to be a “mother” and not really father like, you can really see that in the video below.

New “Halloween” film to start filming in July…

Dimension announced that a new Halloween film is returning to the big screen and filming will begin in July. The title of the next installment will be, “Halloween Returns” and the script was written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan who wrote many of the “Saw” sequels. The film will also be directed by Marcus Dunstan.

http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3349277/directing-halloween-returns-exclusive/

The story is gonna be a standalone film — in which it won’t have anything to do with the original series or the two Rob Zombie films… here is the plot:

http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3349227/michael-myers-resurrected-halloween-returns/

I’m sure Dimension really wanted Rob Zombie back but I remember Rob saying he would never do “Halloween 3”. I guess he wanted to move on from it. He wouldn’t tell us why…

http://screenrant.com/rob-zombie-halloween-3-pauly-18980/

So since Rob isn’t coming back for the next one, Dimension decided to come up with their own story.

I wonder what the Michael Myers mask is gonna look like for the next one? I hope they bring the original William Shatner mask back… I don’t want the Rob Zombie mask.

I know the two Rob Zombie films weren’t everyone’s favorite but I’m probably one of the very few who loved Rob’s two “Halloween” films. Yeah I loved them both! It’s kind of too bad he doesn’t want to come back to 3 but I understand how he wants to move on and do his own thing. Maybe it is best they move on without Rob since “Halloween II” didn’t do so well in the box office.

This new movie will probably come out next Halloween, not this year. Hopefully they do a good job with it.

Double film review: “V/H/S 2” and “Texas Chainsaw”…

Earlier this week I watched two new horror films and I thought it would be cool to review them briefly for this site… here they are:

This movie, “V/H/S 2” is a found footage film. Filmed in the style of “Paranormal Activity”, “Blare Witch Project”, etc. Ya know, those movies filmed with just a handheld camera.

This film is the sequel to “V/H/S” which you could stream on Netflix. “V/H/S/ 2” is pretty much the same idea from the first movie except the plot to this film is about two private investigators who are on the search for a missing student. They go to the missing students home and they find a collection of VHS tapes. The two investigators watch the collection of tapes which have different things going on them. They aren’t good things either… they are evil things. Things like ghost stories, zombies, the cult and aliens.

The VHS films are a collection of short horror films kind of like what you see in “Creepshow”.

I did like the first V/H/S film but it had slight problems. I think the “VHS 2”, the second one was a big improvement. The stories were scarier… even more gruesome and disturbing. They can get funny and entertaining as well. I was watching this film at the edge of my seat throughout the whole movie and I rarely experience that watching horror films. It was a pretty intense movie. After the movie got over with, I was blown away and was like, “What the hell did I just see?”.

I think VHS 2 is one of the best movies of this year.

I think the VHS series deserve more recognition and hope someday… these films get the respect they deserve. When this film first opened, it wasn’t shown in that many theaters so it wasn’t a wide release so I guess you can call it a straight to DVD release. I can understand why ’cause movies like this are way too graphic to be shown nationwide. If the makers of the VHS series keep up the great work, they can one day be bigger than the “Paranormal Activity” franchise.

VHS series are awesome and I’m already looking forward to “V/H/S 3”.

I watched the new “Texas Chainsaw” film last night and to be honest, I was pretty disappointed with it. It was a horrible film, actually. Probably one of the worst movies of this year. This film is the sequel to the 1974 film directed by Tobe Hooper. This film is about a young woman who travels to Texas to collect an inheritance from her family. She goes to Texas with a group of friends to go to her home that she was going to sign papers for. The home is a huge mansion that her grandmother once owned. Of course, turns out that Leatherface the chainsaw guy was living there.

They really need to come up with new material if they want the Texas Chainsaw franchise to work. It’s the same rehash from the two other remakes. A group of friends travelling in a van to some old house only to find out a cannibalistic man with a chainsaw living there. Same usual thing… her friends get killed… Leatherface chasing a screaming girl through the woods…. blah blah blah… you get the deal. Plus, this movie has tons of plot holes. I don’t mean to spoil things… not trying to but they gave Leatherface a name in this movie… they revealed his identity and turned him into a good person instead of this evil mysterious monster. Tons of plot holes all over this film. It was too predictable as well.

How many times can Hollywood remake Texas Chainsaw and ruin it? It’s sad because I’m a huge fan of the franchise and the Leatherface character. I wouldn’t recommend this movie for Halloween. If you want to watch a Texas Chainsaw movie for Halloween… I would suggest the 1974 film and the Marcus Nispel 2003 film is pretty good too.

While I do like the fact that Hollywood is trying to keep the horror genre alive… they’re gonna destroy the horror genre if they keep exploiting iconic characters like Leatherface, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Kreuger, Michael Myers, etc. I hear a Chucky and Hellraiser reboots are on the way too.

Forget the new “Texas Chainsaw”… the movie was garbage.

The Brock’s Horror Film Pick #1: John Carpenter’s “Halloween”…

Usually, every year, I would do a top 15 horror film list in the month of Oct., to recommend horror flicks for readers to see on Halloween. I just thought of a better plan. Instead of doing the typical yearly top 15 list, I thought I would do something different. Something a little better. I thought it would be cool to post one video a day of a favorite horror film of mine. One video a day, of a different film, leading up to Halloween Day itself on Oct. 31st.

Tonight, I’ll start off with this one, John Capenter’s “Halloween”, 1978 film with Jamie Lee Curtis. This is my favorite horror flick of all time, I watch it every year Halloween night. You learn something new every time you watch it. This film is indeed a classic. It’s definitely one of those films you can watch over and over again, and never get tired of it.

Enjoy the best scene of the whole film.

Brock’s Top 20 Favorite Horror films of all time…

It’s that’s time again. Halloween is just around the corner and I think it’s about time to do another Top Favorite Horror films list of all time. Just my way of recommending you some good stuff to watch on Halloween night. I think I usually do 15 every year, but I think I’ll do 20 this time. The list changes yearly due to the newer horror films that come out lately.

If you’re looking for some good movies to watch with all the lights off, here’s my list:

  1. Halloween (Carpenter version) – I’ll never get tired of this masterpiece. I watch it pretty much every Halloween night and I’m sure other people do as well. It’s a classic, indeed.
  2. Halloween II (Rob Zombie version) – Critics and movie fans hated this movie, but I fucking LOVED it. I thought Rob did a wonderful job on doing justice with Michael Myers, the way he’s supposed to be. This was a really disturbing and creepy film. I haven’t seen this film in a long time, maybe I’ll watch it again this weekend.
  3. Evil Dead II: Dead By Dawn – This is my favorite of the Evil Dead series. Love this movie too much. If you want to be scared to death, get grossed out and laugh your ass off at the same time, this is the film for you. Always a great film to watch on Halloween.
  4. The Exorcist – Of course, can’t leave this one off the list, and it needs to be in the top 5 for sure. Can never forget the incredible performance by Max Von Sydow.
  5. The Omen (original) – Man, I love this movie. Everything about this movie is perfect, and of course, Gregory Peck was amazing in this flick.
  6. Night of the Living Dead (original) – Can’t forget the George A. Romero classic, the man responsible for bringing zombies into films. There maybe so many zombie flicks over the years, but nothing else will be able to top this masterpiece.
  7. Dracula (1931, original) – There’s been way too many remakes of “Dracula” over the years, but nothing will top the Bela Lugosi classic. While Francis Ford Coppola’s “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” is a wonderful film, the original will always be better.
  8. A Nightmare on Elm St. (both, original & remake, two way tie) – I loved both the original Wes Craven film and the remake just the same. I loved Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy.
  9. Nosferatu (original, 1932, silent film) – Forget “Twilight” and forget all the nonsense Anne Rice Lestat books. Nosferatu is probably the best vampire of them all.
  10. Texas Chainsaw Massacre (remake) – I’m probably gonna get slammed for this, but I loved the remake more than the original Tobe Hooper version. I thought the remake did the Leatherface character just right. Plus, Marcus Nispel’s vision of horror films is just fascinating.
  11. The Ring (remake) – The 2002 film starring Naomi Watts, this film is actually pretty scary as hell. While I did love this movie, I didn’t care for the sequel too much though.
  12. Frailty – A film about two young kids living with their Dad who is a serial killer, in which he saw people as demons. It’s a really good film.
  13. Wolf Creek – It’s another serial killer film, one of the better new horror films. About young backpackers getting kidnapped by a psycho madman. Check it out.
  14. Hellraiser I and II – Most of the Hellraiser movies were pretty bad, but I think the first two Hellbound films were the best. It is sad the Horror film industry ruined such a great character. I hope Hellraiser gets a re-boot someday.
  15. Twilight Zone: The Movie – Do you want to see something, really scary? Enough said!
  16. I Spit On Your Grave (Remake) – A film about a young girl who has been gang raped by a bunch of men, and she kills her attackers for revenge. This film will be a gross out, but it’s a really good revenge story. I love this film.
  17. An American Werewolf In London – Time to throw another classic in here. I think this is the best werewolf movie.
  18. Paranormal Activity series – A lot of people are giving the P.A. movies bad reviews, but I honestly love them so far. I love the story of Katie Featherston. I’m looking forward to the 3rd movie. The third “P.A.” movie is actually a prequel of the first movie.
  19. The Others – This is an excellent ghost story, starring Nicole Kidman. The pacing maybe slow and you may not be into it at first, but it’ll grow on you.
  20. Buried – It’s not really a horror film but scary enough to watch it on Halloween. It stars Ryan Reynolds, about a US truck driver based in Iraq, finds himself buried alive in a coffin underground. This movie is actually pretty scary. Why? Because it’s realistic. I watched this movie on Netflix a couple of weeks ago, and I loved it.
That’s it. There are too many horror films that I like but those above are my favorite.

Top 15 Favorite Horror Films of all time…

It’s that time of year again. October is around the corner and Halloween is nearing us. This is the time where people would start watching horror films all month. I do this list every year, sometimes the list is the same but sometimes it can be a little different with the new horror films that come out. Here is my list of my top 15 favorite horror films that I would recommend you to watch in Oct.

Here is my list, enjoy:

  1. Halloween II (Rob Zombie version): The film has been hated by critics and fans, but in my opinion, I didn’t find anything wrong with the movie at all. In fact, I thought it was the best Halloween movie ever made and it’s how the Halloween series should have been. I thought the film was well written and directed, it was actually kind of creepy as well. I always think that those who don’t like this movie, don’t understand the horror genre at all. It’s not only the best Halloween movie ever made, it’s one of my favorite horror films I’ve seen in a long time. This film is that brilliant, LOVE IT!
  2. Halloween (Carpenter version): This is a classic, had to put this one in there. It’s one of those movies you can watch so many times and never get tired of it. You learn something new every time you watch this film.
  3. Evil Dead II: Dead By Dawn: This has always been my favorite Evil Dead film of them all.
  4. The Exorcist: A film I watch on every Halloween pretty much. This film is a masterpiece. Love the story of Regan and the epic performance of Max Von Sydow.
  5. Friday the 13th (remake): This may shock some people, but I thought the Friday remake was very impressive. I actually thought it was better than the originals, and the Jason Voorhees character in this film was more human and realistic. That’s pretty much why I liked it so much.
  6. Texas Chainsaw Massacre (remake): The original Tobe Hooper version was ok, but that movie was kind of annoying hearing that girl scream throughout the entire film. This version didn’t have that. The remake was actually much scarier than the original too.
  7. The Omen (original): To throw another classic in there, I would have to list “The Omen” with Gregory Peck. It’s been one of my most watchable movies on Halloween night for a long time.
  8. Frailty: A film written and directed by Bill Paxton who also stars the leading role in. He plays a father who turns out to be a vicious serial killer. An excellent movie all around. Scary too.
  9. Wolf Creek: A film about a bunch of young travelers who go hiking in the Australian Outback, they run into a guy who pretends to help those kids, but guess what folks? He’s a serial killer! Go figure!
  10. The Strangers: A film that stars Liv Tyler, a young couple who’s on vacation. Her longtime boyfriend proposes to her but she said no. The couple gets strange visitors by three masked people. This film is scary and creepy as hell. I would recommend it.
  11. Quarantine: This film tells a story about a TV news reporter who films a documentary about firemen. The firemen and the TV reporter go investigate this building which they get trapped in, but they get strange visitors too, it’s a zombie film. This film got mixed opinions by viewers but I absolutely loved it!
  12. Paranormal Activity: A lot of people hated this film, but I liked it. I look forward to the sequel as well.
  13. The Ring (remake): Only the first one with Naomi Watts was a real good movie, didn’t care for the second one.
  14. Stephen King’s “The Mist”: To throw a Stephen King movie in there, I would have to throw in “The Mist”. Why “The Mist”? It was a creative story, it was an edge of your seat kind of movie and Thomas Jane pulled off a great performance in this film. I thought it was a great flick.
  15. The Others: A nice ghost story that has a big twist at the end. A great film that stars Nicole Kidman.

Don’t get mad if I don’t list any of the important classics, so many great horror films out there. I just listed the ones that were my favorites. Enjoy!

Brock’s Top 15 horror films of all time…

Well October is here and Halloween is just around the corner. My favorite thing to do when celebrating Halloween is sitting around the house, watching horror films. As some of you may know, horror is my favorite genre. I do these lists every year on Halloween and sometimes these lists changes. The list for this year will be quite different ’cause I’ve seen plenty of great horror films that really impressed me the last several years.

Here is the list, I’ll go backwards with the no. 1 being the best I’ve ever seen in a long time. Enjoy as this list may be quite a shocker to you as well….

 

15. Wolf Creek

(this film was released in 2005, an Australian horror film about a group of teenage backpackers out on a hike, then they find themselves held captive by a vicious serial killer. I’ve seen many teen slashers, and I think “Wolf Creek” is the best teen slasher I’ve ever seen. If you want to see a teen slasher flick that is actually scary as hell, see this one. This one will send shivers down your spine, trust me. There are some scary scenes in this flick and some of the most brutal murders in a film ever. The killer whose name is Mick Taylor is one scary dude)

14. Frailty

(This is a horror film that stars Bill Paxton and Matthew McConaughey, the film was also directed by Bill Paxton himself. The story tells a group of young children who are brothers, they live with their single dad when they don’t know about his evil past of being a demonic serial killer. The father claims he kills people because he sees them as demons. A creepy film that is perfect for watching with all the lights off)

13. Quarantine

(A young female news reporter does a report on firemen. Firemen go to this apartment building to rescue people from these evil beings, wouldn’t really call them zombies, but they are people that were infected by a mutant virus. One of the scariest new horror films I’ve seen in a long time, so this definitely makes the list. Might start off kind of boring and slow, but toward the end, the film will take you at the edge of your seat…)

12. Night of the Living Dead (Romero version)

(This is such a perfect film to watch on Halloween night every year, classic film and amazing, although Romero is still doing Zombie movies today, the rest of his work won’t top this one)

11. Nosferatu

(My favorite vampire movie over Dracula, the silent film version is so scary…you may not like silent films but they can be great when you get into it. Silent films was the start of Hollywood films, keep in mind…)

10. Hellraiser

(The first Hellraiser movie was amazing. Told a good story, and powerful writing. This has always been one of my favorite horror films of all times)

9. Friday the 13th (remake, directed by Marcus Nispel)

(This is actually an impressive remake. I liked the new Jason Voorhees, much improvement. It told a good story too, I thought this film was great and better than the original series, honestly)

8. The Omen

(To throw in another classic here, “The Omen” has always been an incredible film and a film I would never get tired of watching. I think it’s Gregory Peck’s best film)

7. Texas Chainsaw Massacre (remake, Marcus Nispel)

(Believe it or not, I think the Marcus Nispel remake of Texas Chainsaw is much better than the Tobe Hooper original. I think the remake was what the original should have been. I think Marcus is a fine film maker in the horror genre and he certainly knows how to make a remake better than the original)

6. The Ring

(Starring Naomi Watts, and directed by Gore Verbinski, a very creepy film, in my opinion. This is creative storytelling. There’s no gore, no murder, just a scary film. I love it)

5. The Strangers

(This film “The Strangers” with Liv Tyler, makes high on the list. I was completely blown away by the film. Definitely scary and horrifying. You’ll know when you see it, this is a perfect Halloween film)

4. Evil Dead II: Dead By Dawn

(My favorite of the Evil Dead series. Groovy)

3. The Exorcist

(Another classic I had to throw in here. I loved this flick ever since I was a child)

2. Halloween (John Carpenter)

(This always made no. 1 every year on my list. Why is it no. 2 now? Carpenter’s a classic, a film that I love, but there’s something else I’ve seen that I liked even more)

 

********************Scroll down for No. 1*************************

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Halloween II (remake, Rob Zombie)

(This may come to quite a shock to you, and may create some controversy, but that’s okay. I find Rob Zombie’s “Halloween II” to be quite a masterpiece. No lie. It didn’t get the best reviews, but I learned that the movies getting negative reviews is what makes them really good. You’ve read my review of this in the past when it first came out and I was in awe. Rob Zombie’s a gifted film maker. I just love his vision on how Rob concentrates on the villain’s point of view more than it’s leading star. In Rob’s movies, the villain’s the leading star, not Laurie Strode. This really was a fantastic movie, I loved it. The critics and movie fans that trashed this film, just don’t understand Rob Zombie’s film making style. I do. This is one of the best horror flicks I’ve seen in the last decade)
