Movies 25, 26, 27 and 28

Movie #25 Pumpkinhead
A little on the cheesey side, but quite watchable. Genre favorite Lance Henriksen delivers a good performance with a story that could have been A LOT worse. Great special effects (What do you expect from Stan Winstons directorial Debut?). I was surprised how much I liked this movie, though it does seem like it owes A LOT to Alien/Aliens/The Thing, you should only watch this if you've seen those three.

Movie #26 [REC]
Easily one of the most affective found footage movies ever made, the scares are fantastic. Though I've never thought a movie done in this style WAS real, this is the closest I've come to feeling actual distress for the characters in the story, the actors are just that genuine. Loved it, I'm very excited to see the sequels.

Movie #27 Wes Craven's New Nightmare
A personal favorite of mine that in the first act didn't seem like it was going to hold up to the expectations I had set for it. A great script idea and solid writing and directing is dragged down by Langenkamp's almost stale performance as HERSELF. The movie starts off incredibly slow but once it gets going it really really goes. Big fan of this movie, freddy's design is GREAT.

Movie #28 Axe

One of the worst horror movies I've ever seen. Boring, stupid, redundant, cliche, cheap. Just one of many stupid rip offs of Craven's Last House on the Left. Avoid at all costs.
