The film is “a reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.

Scary Sunday – The Scanners Franchise (1980 – 1991)2

For the next  few editions of Scary Sunday, I’m going to be watching a plethora of movies. Namely, entire franchises. I’ll be writing mini overviews and reviews for each one…yes even the crappy direct-to-DVD/VHS/Beta max movies that should be avoided like the plague manifested as dysentery, or something icky, because that’s the kind of guy I am. Anyway, Let’s start things off with a simple trilogy. Scanners

Watch The Bloody Red Band Trailer For Hatchet 30

Hatchet-3-image

Limbs torn off, exploding heads, fountains of blood, balls hung from trees, yep this looks like a Hatchet movie alright. The first red band trailer for the third film in the series has made its way online, boasting more gruesome sights that you can poke a bloody chainsaw at. The film looks like a vast improvement over the second soulless film in the series, placing Victor Crowley up against a heavily armed squadron of victims.

Hatchet 3 will see series creator Adam Green vacate directorial duties, handing the reigns over to BJ McDonnell for his feature-length debut. McDonnell has previously taken care the A and B camera operations on the first two Hatchet films, as well as Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Green still wrote the screenplay for the film.

The film continues the tale of the now-iconic villain Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder). As a search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces and carnage left behind from the first two films, Marybeth (Danielle Harris) hunts down the true secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left the ghost of Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.

Watch the gory goods below.

Scary Sunday – Arachnophobia (1990)1

Rachno titleAre you afraid of Spiders? Are they more afraid of you? I doubt that very much. Have you seen some of the Spiders that exist out there? I may live in a country that homes “The Deadliest Animals in the World” with long Brown Snakes, big ugly Sharks, killer Crocodiles and rabid Platypuses (Platapusi?) but none, and I mean none, can compare to just how scary a giant Spider is in real life. I’m not arachnophobic (much) but I do like to think that we have a mutual agreement (That co-exists with Bugs,Snails and Cockroaches {It was a treaty we all signed]) that states I’ll leave you alone, if you leave me alone. It works well for the most part. If a Cockroach scatters out of a wall, He has until I return to leave or suffer the consequences. If a Snail is blocking my path as I try to leave my house, It has 2 days to move or face eviction via my foot. But Spiders…Spiders seem to tempt me, fate and this treaty on an almost daily basis. I’ll walk around outside and BAM! Random cob-web in my face. WHAT THE HELL Spiders? I don’t go and place a booby trap outside your front door. Or when I’m in the shower and a Spider crawls out through the hole…GET YOUR OWN SHOWER you eight legged fuzzball!! And then when I’m driving, and YOU’Re ON THE INSIDE OF MY CAR WINDOW! GTFO! TEACH YOURSELF TO DRIVE you cannibalistic wig wannabe. What about those giant spiders that are bigger than your hand? I’m sorry but those Spiders need to die…today. Let’s talk about the movie now. Damn Spiders even taking up the first paragraph.

Scary Sunday – Day of the Triffids (1962)2

triffids posterFor the Month of April, I’m taking it back to when Horror Movies actually scared people. Shock, Horror, A-gaping-mouth-itis…there actually was a time in cinematic history where it was still considered to many as “The magic-flickering thingies and noises, that we don’t comprehend”" Instead of “Film” – as we know it. (Olden times-people talked funny, Trust me – I’ve gone back in time – Twice) The original “Night of The Living Dead” gave people heart attacks, “Dracula”‘s bat on a string struck terror into every 16-year-old girls heart and Cary Grant’s eyes once stole a small boys soul and kept in locked away until like two weeks ago. So let’s celebrate some of the greatest movies ever made in the genre. We’re going back to 1962 with the British classic “Day of the Triffids”

In the 1960′s Men were Men whom were manly and didn’t wear tight-Jeans unless they were saving the world. Women didn’t really know of a world outside the kitchen, but all of them were absolutely gorgeous, radiant and intelligent and it was abnormal NOT to drink and drive. Thanks to “Mad Men” I’ve learnt everything I need to know about the decade that happened a good quarter Century before I was born.

Scary Sunday – Grabbers (2012)0

grabbers titlesThrow out some Countries that come to your mind when you think Horror movies. America? Japan? Mexico? Sweden? France? Ok…Did anybody say Ireland? Anybody? No? Well, I wouldn’t expect you too. They do exist, and from the one or two I’ve seen, they’re pretty darn good.

Sitemaster/Overlord “Dean” lent me one from his vast collection of DVD’s (And freebies he always seems to get) telling me I’d like this one. I hadn’t heard anything of the movie, but he reassured me that I’d love it and it’s totally my style (You don’t know me at all, Dean, you don’t know me at all :P) But he was right, and Grabbers is an entertaining, fun film that I felt best to tie in with today being St. Patrick’s Day. My quarter Irish heritage would be proud.

Grabbers revolves around a small Irish island named “Erin Island”, with a small town, simple folk and very little in terms of an actual police force. The Towns Sargeant takes a holiday and is temporarily replaced by officer Lisa Nolan (Ruth Bradley), teaming up with fellow Garda (What the Irish call their police) O’Shea (Richard Coyle) – An alcoholic (You saw that coming). Things are tense between the two, with the whole odd couple element thrown in (She’s a goody-two shoes workaholic, He’s just a lazy drunk) An Alien force crash lands on Earth, conveniently right on this little island. It attacks the simple townsfolk and drinks their blood. O’Shea and Nolan must set aside their differences to tackle this Alien.

Scary Sunday – Somos Lo Que Hay (We Are What We Are) 20102

We Are What We AreWatching The ABC’s of Death” a few weeks back opened me up to a plethora of new directors and writers to try out. One of those Directors was a Spanish man by the name of Jorge Michel Grau. Grau directed the Segment “I”, which was ok, nothing too special, but I decided to check him out anyway. “We Are What We Are” is his first big Directorial Debut, as well as being the scriptwriter, never an easy feat by any means.

We Are What We Are” is a touching story about Life, Love, Tradition. It’s about the Trials and Tribulations, the Hardships and the Rewards that all encompass in being a family and it’s about cannibalism.

Cannibalism.

What?

That’s not how your family works? Maybe your family are the weirdos?

Scary Sunday – The ABC’s of Death (2012)0

Abcs of Death Cover26 Directors. 26 Letters of the Alphabet. 26 Mini-Horror films. Technically, this would’ve lasted me half a years worth of Scary Sundays. I’m lazy, but not that lazy. The good old anthology Horror films have always peaked my interest, from the days of Vault of Horror (A collection of Tales From The Crypt episodes), Tales From the Darkside and the Creepshow movies up to the more recent entries like V/H/S and Trick R Treat, I , and many Horror fans will be there to eat them up. Much akin to the other anthology movies, this one has some good, some bad, some average and some that make babies cry.

An interesting concept in which the 26 Directors across the world were given a random letter of the alphabet, then asked to make a short based on a word starting with the letter and with a budget of $5000 dollars with free reign over every aspect. For example A = Apocalypse, K = Klutz, T = Toilet and Z = Zetsumetsu were used and chosen by the directors. Nothing was off-limits and what plays out over the next 2 hrs, ranges from Spine-tingling to hilarious to strange to messed up to down right atrocious. With no conditions set for each Director, it truly is a mixed bag.

Directors include the likes of: Angela Bettis (Yes, that Angela Bettis from “May”), Jason Eisner (Hobo With a Shotgun) Yoshihiro Nishimura (Machine Girl, Tokyo Gore Police) Ti West (House of the Devil) Xavier Gens (Hitman) and even Australian Director Andrew Traucki (The Reef, Black Water)

Scary Sunday – The Mad (2007)0

The Mad cover Hands up everyone that has seen a Zombie movie. OK, quite a lot… Hands up if you’ve seen a movie with Billy Zane in it. Still a few hands. Alright what about a movie about Mad Cow Disease-Infected Zombies? Hmm… what happened to all the hands? As a pretentious narcissistic arsehole once said to his clone standing next to a mirror “Screw you; I have” (No hate, still love you people, just haven’t told a good butt joke in a while) I have succumbed to another obscure movie with a target audience of about 50 people.

Billy Zane – The Nicolas Cage of B-grade movies (Not that the Cage is really an A-Lister, They both seem to do eight projects at once) stars as Dr. Jason Hunt – A Doctor that does absolutely zero medical work in this off the wall film. On route to a trip with his Daughter Amy (Maggie Castle) his Girlfriend Monica (Shauna Macdonald) and Amy’s Boyfriend – Blake (Evan Charles Flock) Decide to stop into a truck stop for a bit of rest and grub. Unbeknownst to them, just a little down the way on a secluded farm, Farmer Sutter has been feeding his livestock Cows some nasty ju-ju, causing his beef (yeah post-cow Beef) to act all crazy and infect the local town surrounding the Truck Stop.
