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.
I really had high expectations for this movie especially as it covers something that affects me and millions of others that is extreme nightmares and sleep paralysis, a condition where your brain thinks your awake yet you are still dreaming, yet you cannot move your body, and you feel like something else is in the room with you.
Plot summary, the Morgan's who are already suffering from grief, after losing a child to cot death, and their oldest son Daniel (Lucas Bond) is suffering night terrors, and a nightmare of something trying to suck the life out of him. They go to a Sleep expert Alice Arnolds (Maggie Q) who's own life suffered a tradegy when her brother died as a young child in a sleepwalking accident. These are resurfaced again after coming in contact with the boys family, who she is trying to help, with nightmares of her younger brother tormenting her once more. With her visions and nightmares getting progressively worse, and the boys life is in serious danger as these…
A rarity that a sequel surpasses the original, but to actually better it, and out smart it, is an amazing feat. I cannot put into words how good this movie is. A film that Ryan Reynolds was born to play, a natural comedian, the one liners, the piss taking of Marvel and DC, the whole X Men theme is ripped apart again, with Wade whizzing around the School for gifted, in Professor Xavier's chair saying it smells like Patrick Stuart. The action set pieces are bigger and better, the car, moped chase scene is worth the admission price alone. A film that was so naturally funny these days are a rarity alone, it is without doubt easily one of the funniest scripts ever. With spot on casting from the inclusion of Josh Brolin as Cable, cameos from Bill Skarsgård, to Terry Crews, Rob Delany as Peter. With outstanding performances from Zazie Beetz as Domino, and Hunt From The Wildness actor Julian Dennison as Firefist. This film is as close to perfection as any movie I'll ever go and see. …
