Favorite Scary Film: Bad Moon

10.10.18 Hello everyone! Every Wednesday of October 2018, I’m letting you know what my favorite scary movie is. I don’t know if this one has a cult following, but it’s becoming a favorite. Bad Moon. Ted (Michael Paré) is working in Nepal when he and his girlfriend are attacked by a mysterious creature. Ted, though brutally maimed, survives, but his girlfriend is not so lucky. To help his recovery, Ted moves close to his sister, Janet (Mariel Hemingway), and her son, Brett (Mason Gamble), but soon realizes he was attacked by a werewolf. Ted is helpless to stop his transformation and only Brett’s German shepherd, Thor, is able to see that Ted is a danger to everyone around him. Released on November 1, 1996, this film is based on a novel Thor by Wayne Smith. The story is in the novel is told by the dog’s viewpoint. The reviews weren’t good and the film didn’t do well either, but it’s one of those horror films you can’t really ignore. Especially the dog, I like him …

Film Review: Venom

10.8.18 I haven’t posted a review since…April? Avengers: Infinity War. I have a lot of catching up do with this department. I made up for it on Saturday with Venom. Let me just say that I found it very entertaining.  Some critics didn’t too much like it or cared for the film, but I tend to think these people forget about films, especially superhero films: having a fun ride and that’s what Venom is. A little funny ride.  Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is an investigative journalist who lands an interview with Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), CEO of the Life Foundation. The foundation has sent a probe in space in search of habitable worlds. The probe comes in contact with a symbiotic lifeform. Brock’s fiancé, Anne Weying (Michelle Williams) is a district attorney helping with the Life Foundation’s legal defense. Instead of asking about his space program, Brock questions Drake about another subject, which leads with not so great consequences. One of Drake’s scientists (Jenny Slate) approaches Brock with evidence of using human hosts for the …

Favorite Scary Film: John Carpenter’s The Fog

10.3.18 Hello…I’m doing something different this month of October. As you know this is the month of costumes, candy, and all things Halloween. I don’t celebrate Halloween at all, but I still like candy, mainly chocolate, but I do love a scary movie. So all this month, every Wednesday, I will pick my favorite scary films.   Today I have John Carpenter’s The Fog. This film premiered February 1, 1980, although I discovered this film about several years ago. I probably don’t remember it much growing up. Directed by John Carpenter, the film stars Jamie Lee Curtis, her mother Janet Leigh, Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, and Tom Atkins. Set in a coastal town of Antonio Bay, California, the town is celebrating its 100th anniversary. While the residents are planning to celebrate, a sinister, glowing fog approaches the town, along with a vengeful ghost of mariners, who were killed in a shipwreck along the coast near the town…a hundred years ago. I can’t really explain why I like the film, I just do. You have a …
