House (1986) Film Review. Directed by Steve Miner. Distributed by New World Pictures. Rated R US, Certificate 15 UK , running time 89 minutes. Currently showing on The Horror Channel UK, with a release soon from Arrow Films.
A wonderful film released in 1986,starring William Katt, as Roger Cobb,a respected Horror writer,with writers block. After the death of his favourite Aunt,he moves into her house,because of the great memories he had as a child. Roger is also, getting over the disappearance of his only child,a year earlier,with a divorce on the table also. When Roger decides to confront all his fears by writing of his experiences of the Vietnam war,against his publishers wishes,it brings up bad memories,of his time in Vietnam especially the loss of his good friend Big Ben. The thing is the Horrors of War manifest into horrible creatures,demons,to torment Roger even further. All this is because of a gateway to Hell in the cupboard space in the bathroom. Now I'm being honest I have not seen this film for over 20 years, so all this review is from memory alone. As in the UK this film is so hard to get on DVD as Anchor Bay the distributor,has deleted this title, and with silly prices for this film,£45,00 come on your having a laugh, I love this film,but will not pay silly money for it. I did like this film apart from Hellraiser, A Nightmare On Elm Street this was my favourite film of the 80's Horror scene. The one scene sets in my mind is the old Hag scene,in which Roger thinks he's killed her by a shotgun blast, when that fails chopping her up with an Axe,and burying the body in his garden. With this scene beating the Evil Dead 2 scene a year earlier,with his Neighbours dog digging up body parts,especially the hand,which gets loose and crawls away. A fantastic funny,yet scary film,that as soon as a release date comes out for a 30th Anniversary edition I will be the first to buy.
I came across this trailer on YouTube yesterday, and it is doing the rounds again on social media, a trailer first showing in 2015, that got everyone talking " is this for real" " this can not be a film can it?" As it turns out no, it is a trailer that is well made, but certainly is not going to be a film anytime soon.
A one joke trailer about a randy ghost intent on jerking men off, using handjobs, I'm surprised the tag line wasn't "Cumming soon".
This was obviously made by men with a running narrative that women cannot give a decent handjob, and having them do the deed is worse than death, instead you have a ghost who wants to jerk all men to death.
It is as awful as you'd expect it to be, but I still found myself chuckle a few times, it is rude, crude, insinuating, and in fairness harmless fun, a film if made I would actually probably watch, it certainly looks better than the recent Cabin Fever, Evil Dead 2013.
Tree is about to have a very bad day, again, and again and again.
College Grad Tree, a self centred bitch, who you take an instant dislike to, who is foul to everyone.
Treats everyone like dirt, then wonders why someone would want her dead. With a groundhog Day loop thing going on every time she is murdered she has to live through the same Monday the 18th, until she can find out her wants her dead, solve her own murder, and maybe become a better person in the mean time.The thing is I really wanted to hate this movie, but I couldn't, because of the performance from Jessica Rothe as Tree, in her first scream queen role, starring previously in La La Land, and Netflix's Parallels.
She is so likeable and believable in the role, although playing the bitch perfectly, she is deep down a damaged soul, still mourning the death of her mother, and her grief is her anger towards fellow People.
With some inventive kills, and no matter what Tree does, the day always ends in her death, with …
A film that strangely has been long forgotten, from 1980, and a film that has no mention about any remake or reboot. That is how this good film has been left on the shelf, compared to other slashers of that decade. Strange as it has possibly the best onscreen kills, with amazing practical effects from Gore master Tom Savini.
A jilted soldier returns home from world war 2, hearing just before that his girlfriend has replaced him with another man. At the graduation ball of 1945, Rosemary is brutally slain alongside her new boyfriend. Shocking the town, that another ball has been postponed for 35 years. It is now 1980 the ball has been agreed once more, and the jilted soldier is not happy and decides to slay the party goers once more.
Formally known as the Prowler especially in the States, but changed to Rosemary's Killer in the UK. The film apart from the great Gore effects is quite average though, and probably why it has never been remade. With the jilted soldier in…
