Your Weekend Horror Movie Guide: August 26, 2005


Three's Company could easily be our theme for this weekends edition of the Horror Movie Guide, since it will only be myself, moviemaven and solstic giving you our horror movie picks.

Everyone else (Meh, MacReady and Goon) is currently terrorizing people at this years Rue Morgue: Festival of Fear. But hey.. our picks are the best anyways.. *wink*

So here are our selections for this edition of the "Weekend Horror Movie Guide."  We hope you are enjoying the films that we have been picking - as we enjoy selecting (what we feel) to be the best "horror has to offer."  

So without further intro, here are the staff's picks for this week.. now start a renting! 

Deadmanwalkin's Pick: Killer Klowns from Outter Space

This is one of my "guilty pleasures" and don't be suprised to find that it will be yours too.  And what's not to love about this film.. we have Killer Klowns, balloon dogs, popcorn guns, cotton candy caccoons and one cool soundtrack. 

Mix that in with some over the top cheese filled acting and your in for one hell of a fun time.

"A kampy, kult favorite! After a meteor plunges to Earth, young lovers Mike and Debbie discover a circus tent-spacecraft piloted by grinning, red-nosed aliens.

The klown passengers are not happy makers of merriment however, but instead demented homicidal aliens with rather unique ways of killing their victims (acid pie, anyone?), who methodically preserve tasty human treats in cotton candy cocoons.   Naturally, the kruel killer klowns kreate khaos for the kops, until someone discovers the aliens' weakness--by a nose." 

Moviemaven's Pick - Ravenous

In the mood for a tasty treat? Here is a little something for you to gnaw on. Dig in and bite off a huge chunk of this yummy goodness! Mmmmm.  (Review)

"A cowardly soldier is stationed at an isolated military outpost with a bunch of misfits in Sierra Nevada following the Mexican-American War in 1847.

When a dazed survivor of an unfortunate expedition shows up at the outpost, it isn't long before he reveals himself to be a murderous madman with a taste for human flesh."

Solstic's Pick - Halloween (Extended Edition/TV Version)

I love this movie, it is my favorite horror series to date. Michael Meyers is the best serial killer on the earth if you ask me. He is the closest thing to something real.

Aside from him obviously dying and coming back to life. He could be the quiet guy from next door and this first installment in the line of several movies and soon to be more is the perfect start for anyone who has not seen this great horror film.

I bring this as my weeklysubmission after finding out several of my own co-workers have not taken the time to see this masterpiece. So check it out when you get a chance and if you can get the special edition watch both.

The TV version has extend scenes you won't find in the original. I honestly love this series and don't know if I can say a bad thing about it... well that is until you get to the more recent releases of it, but that is another story.

"It was "The Night HE Came Home," warned the posters for John Carpenter's career-making horror smash.

In Haddonfield, Ilinois, on Halloween night 1963, 6-year-old Michael Myers inexplicably slaughters his teenage sister. His psychiatrist Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) can't penetrate Michael's psyche after years of institutionalization, but he knows that, when Myers escapes before Halloween in 1978, there is going to be hell to pay in Haddonfield.

While Loomis heads to Haddonfield to alert police, Myers spots bookish teenager Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and follows her, constantly appearing and vanishing as Laurie and her looser friends Lynda (P.J. Soles) and Annie (Nancy Loomis) make their Halloween plans.

By nightfall, the responsible Laurie is doing her own and Annie's babysitting jobs, while Annie and Lynda frolic in the parent-free house across the street. But Annie and Lynda are not answering the phone, and suspicious Laurie heads across the street to the darkened house to see what is going on .."
