William Castle

William Castle

Here are two more entries into the recent slew of horror YARMs…I’ve been critical of the movement for the most part, with the exception of the William Castle films, especially after the borefest that was the F13 remake..but they are starting to grow on me at this point…

Film, perhaps above all other art forms – lends itself to the disturbance of the viewer to incite emotion as a form of artistic expression, and Zombie has this talent in spades. It is likely why I hated the Halloween remake, it is undistilled -horror- in its essence I suppose, it sure as hell horrified me..but it wasn’t an enjoyable experience, which is for me essential in a film…

The John Carpenter film does not disturb me the way Rob Zombie’s vision does, which is probably what he intends. So for those who like to be shaken and pushed way out of their comfort zone there is the H2 coming up, and for the peeps who want old style slasher-suspense with new effects and an updated look we have the rest…hopefully Elm St will be FAR FAR better than the pathetic entry that was F13…..

What has a bushy tail, likes nuts and scares the scares the stars of Sorority Row (Briana Evigan, Leah Pipes, Rumer Willis, Margo Harshman and Audrina Patridge)? Find out….We sent Rob Zombie’s kid brother (a.k.a. our very own Spider) to get the lowdown on all of Rob’s upcoming projects, most notably Halloween 2. Can you blame us? After all, the movie’s tag line is ‘Family is Forever….
