Kruegermort, the Return

Posted in Reviews, Upcoming Films with tags , , , , on March 2, 2010 by Julianne

New Line has decided, only a few short weeks before the new A Nightmare on  Elm Street hits the big screen, to post a longer, more comprehensive trailer to those of us anxiously waiting  for the film’s release.  Yes, I am one of those who really cannot wait for this film to come out.  I’ll admit that I was super skeptical about the film after the first trailer.  I’ll admit that I’m frankly STILL super skeptical about the film after the second trailer…but now I’m also, beyond a doubt, super excited.

Apathy and Sharp Objects (Review of The Strangers)

Posted in Reviews with tags , , , , on February 1, 2010 by Julianne

I had absolutely no desire to see The Strangers when it came out.  None.  First off, not the biggest Scott Speedman or Liv Tyler fan.

Second, it looked like it would be some crappy gore film à la Hostel.  Don’t get me wrong – I’m not totally anti-gore but I hate gore films that have no purpose and that seem to think disgustingly bloody=horror.  The Strangers looked like just that.  But a friend of mine watched it recently and told me I should see it; she thought it was one of the scarier movies she’d seen in a long time.  Given that this isn’t a friend who screams at the word “boo”, I thought it was worth checking out (especially when I saw it in Redbox…gotta love movies for a dollar).

Beer and bitches and blood, oh my! (Sorority Row review)

Posted in Reviews with tags , , , , , on October 28, 2009 by Julianne

I am unashamed to say that I was anxiously anticipating the release of this movie for about 3 months.  I was introduced to the trailer on Apple and could not stop laughing.  It looked perfect: stupid, overly gorey, lots of screams, stupid girls – everything you could possibly want from a terrible slasher movie (and trust me, I love terrible slasher movies).
