The Collector

Is Anyone else semi-excited to see this tomorrow?


It has...slight potential. It could turn out to be really awesome, or awful. 

Josh Stewart is a total baddie, who ends up really having to save the day in order to save his own life.  He's actually pretty attractive which makes it a looottt easier for some people to go see it ;) Hey I'm a 19 year old girl.... give me a break. 

It's 'From two dumbasses who brought you 3 more shitty sequels to SAW' JOY, It could get interesting, I'm a fan of the hardcore brutal all up in your face horror. and according to the BD review it delivers.

'...For the horror fans that want it hardcore and want it brutal, THE COLLECTOR delivers. The film is littered with insane traps that would make Jigsaw jealous, and without giving anything away, you can expect to cringe and cover your eyes quite a few times. The film is edited in a way where the viewer is given no chance to hide, so when a character is dragged across the floor ripping their nails off, you see it. To avoid, don’t even bother coming to the theater...'

OH YEAH. Monday $5 movie night. I'm pretty sure I'll be there. I will even go by myself. 

...back to my midterm!

Fear house

So after my favorite person left me to go to bed early this morning, I glided into my living room and plopped my ass on the couch on the search of a late night horror film to watch. I got stuck with Fear House [2008ish] Leave it to Chiller!

Never miss the first 15 or so minutes of a movie, it makes the rest of it confusing. Judging from the rest of the movie, I didn't miss much, if anything. Something about people go to a house and sinister forces won't let them leave. Something about using peoples fears against them. Something about a psycho freaky-ass writer, and her brother, his girlfriend, some other guy and god knows who else.

It was clearly an indie film, and they tried real hard. I almost didn't finish watching it. TV movies, every five minutes you're stuck with comercials, making it 2 hours long. Not worth my time. but I sat my ass down and watched the whole thing. The effects were really bad. They tried so hard. They really did. One girl went threw a window....but only her head got cut off...and the body didn't exit the window? A clearly fake headless body was spouting blood. just...bad. Another girl who was terrified of fire gets super burnt after a gas stove BLEW fire on her...but didn't blow up. Which doesn't happen, but when a ghosts involved it does. and the fake burned body looked more like a fake mumified monkey head attached to a stick with clothes on. That's the best way I can describe it. This was also at about a quarter to four in the morning. So who knows what I was seeing at that point.

The point of the movie which I never caught onto, was something about a brother and sister get a house...and the creepy psycho writer sister won't leave. She came up with some story about a little girl locked in the basement. But it wasn't true...then it was...then it wasn't. it wasn't consistant. I STILL DON'T KNOW IF IT WAS TRUE. Everyone but the brother ended up dying, but then he did die? and was stuck in the house to tell the story, and he was a ghost? or he could show himself to people if they broke in and kill them? FUCK IF I KNOW THE MOVIE HAD TO FUCKING ENDING.

If you've watched this movie YOU explain it to me. If you haven't, don't ever watch it! Even if it's so save your life.

...I mean, i guess they tried didn't they?

Let Me In?

I am a 100% die hard fan of Let The Right One In. I fought through the dumbed down subtitles, and friends watching it with me who talked the whole time. I went and spent the last of my money on the book because if was the only copy I could find. yadda yadda yadda.

The thing is why would you feel the need to change the title. That's for a different discussion.

THE POSTERS OH GOOD LORD THE POSTERS! Now this is of course looking from a graphic design point of view. I've been told for the past 10 months to rip everything we see apart and that's what I did. My art SUCKS and I could still do a better job with my eyes closed. They're simple to the point [sorta] what's 'in' for GD right now. I've seen better movie posters for movies that never deserved to be made. The quality itself kills me. Jamie can take it from here.

As a graphic student I am appalled by these posters. I'm not a fan of horror films but I watched the original and loved it. The poster with the two kids at first glance is nice. I looked at it closer and saw that the font at the bottom was hard to read. The spacing in the title is way off. The image is the best part keeping with the fact that she can't leave foot prints but she wears a pink sweater people. The blood poster is horrible. There are too many blood and water brushes. Different effects that could have been used. The blur was placed on top of everything making it worse. The blood over the text- BAD. The title has bad alignment. The other font doesn't fit.
the last one, old hands do not work. They are children, and the vampire side could have been lighter.
Thank you,

haha Gotta love Jamie.

Love it or hate it.
These posters could be a bad forewarning of the movie.
We'll just have to wait and see.
