Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth

Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth: Directed by Anthony Hickox. With Kevin Bernhardt, Lawrence Mortorff, Terry Farrell, Ken Carpenter. An investigative reporter must send the newly unbound Pinhead and his legions back to Hell. This wasn’t on Amazon Prime that I can see, had to find it on alternative streaming sites, so it was a cross between VHS and DVD in quality, which I think actually gave it more charm. Adding to that charm is something that I’ve noticed elsewhere: big stars getting roles in the 3rd or 4th part of a horror franchise, (Leonardo DiCaprio got his start in “Critters...

Hellbound: Hellraiser II

Hellbound: Hellraiser II: Directed by Tony Randel. With Clare Higgins, Ashley Laurence, Kenneth Cranham, Imogen Boorman. Kirsty is brought to an institution after the horrible events of Hellraiser (1987), where the occult-obsessive head doctor resurrects Julia and unleashes the Cenobites and their demonic underworld. They do a well done and quick recap of the first movie, then move on to the fact that the girl from the first film is now considered insane, which yeah, makes sense. There was a whole bunch of crazy stuff happening in that first film! We find that one of her doctors is a bit...

Hellraiser

Hellraiser: Directed by Clive Barker. With Andrew Robinson, Clare Higgins, Ashley Laurence, Sean Chapman. A woman discovers the newly resurrected, partially formed, body of her brother-in-law. She starts killing for him to revitalize his body so he can escape the demonic beings that are pursuing him after he escaped their sadistic underworld. Every year for the last few years I pick a horror franchise that due to the parental limitations of my upbringing, I was never able to experience. This year I picked the Hellraiser series, even though it seems like it’s going to just be a torture porn series...

My Little Pony: A New Generation

My Little Pony: A New Generation: Directed by Robert Cullen, José Luis Ucha, Mark Fattibene. With Vanessa Hudgens, Kimiko Glenn, James Marsden, Sofia Carson. After the time of the Mane 6, Sunny–a young Earth Pony–and her new Unicorn friend Izzy explore their world and strive to restore Harmony to Equestria. The corpse of the “My New Pony: Friendship Is Magic” is still warm and Netflix / Hasbro have the audacity to make a completely unrelated film that turned out to be a fun and worth your time adventure? Well it was unexpected, but it’s true, if you enjoyed the tv...

Smart Blonde

Smart Blonde: Directed by Frank McDonald. With Glenda Farrell, Barton MacLane, Wini Shaw, Addison Richards. Female reporter Torchy Blane teams with her cop boyfriend Lt. Steve McBride to solve the killing of an investor who just bought a popular local nightclub. Back when I watched “Mystery of the Wax Museum” in 2018 I was enamored with Glenda Farrell, who I incorrectly thought was playing Torchy Blane in the 1933 film. Torchy is essentially Glenda, so I can see how I was confused on that point, but seeing her there made me put the “Torchy Blane Collection” on my amazon wishlist...

Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 2

Star Trek: Lower Decks: Created by Mike McMahan. With Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells, Eugene Cordero. The support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, have to keep up with their duties, often while the ship is being rocked by a multitude of sci-fi anomalies. The second second comes to a close with it’s 10th episode and the show keeps getting better and better with every 20 minute show. Episode 9 was particularly fantastic, it’s in my top 10 episodes of Trek for all time! Buy On Amazon!

A Deadly Adoption

A Deadly Adoption: Directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg. With Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Jessica Lowndes, Alyvia Alyn Lind. A distanced couple decide to take in a seemingly innocent pregnant woman in hopes of adopting her unborn child. However, there is more to a book than its cover. This is a really real movie that really did air on the real channeld “Lifetime” and I watched it with my own real eyes. It’s not just real, but it’s a damn good movie for Lifetime, and a great example of what happens when really funny people try their best to make a...

Slaxx

Slaxx: Directed by Elza Kephart. With Romane Denis, Brett Donahue, Sehar Bhojani, Kenny Wong. When a possessed pair of jeans begins to kill the staff of a trendy clothing store, it is up to Libby, an idealistic young salesclerk, to stop its bloody rampage. Other than some poorly done CGI at the very beginning, this is a fantastically made horror film with an absolutely ridiculous premise, but somehow dips into deeply political territory with heavy questions about consumerism and the effects it has on global trade. When you check it out, be sure to stay to the very very end...

The Stuff

The Stuff: Directed by Larry Cohen. With Michael Moriarty, Andrea Marcovicci, Garrett Morris, Paul Sorvino. A delicious, mysterious goo that oozes from the earth is marketed as the newest dessert sensation, but the tasty treat rots more than teeth when zombie-like snackers who only want to consume more of the strange substance at any cost begin infesting the world. If you’re a fan of Futurama, you might see some pretty fun parallels with The Stuff and Slurm, they’re close enough in concept that there has to be some sort of inspiration there, yeah? This is a great snapshot of 80’s...

The Last Days on Mars

The Last Days on Mars: Directed by Ruairi Robinson. With Liev Schreiber, Elias Koteas, Romola Garai, Olivia Williams. A group of astronaut explorers succumb one by one to a mysterious and terrifying force while collecting specimens on Mars. A movie that I had seen prior to my time of logging films and a great example of why I logged them now, aside from throwing Amazon Associate links on all the reviews and begging for comments from people that will never comment on movie reviews. I know I’ve seen it, I remember enjoying it, but having watching it again, I think...
