poster_Scream4ConceptPosterV_1_by_Mr_Rabba

Tim schilling is back taking a look at “Scream 4.” Though the film received some positive reviews, it didn’t scream its way to the top of the box office. How is the film two years later? Let’s dig in!

Thoughts before watching:
This will be the last twitter review for a while so enjoy it while it lasts! #Scream4

Thoughts while watching:
0:01 It’s for you!
0:05 I love Kristen Bell.
0:10 The opening scene is meh. If they did more movie in a movie thing I think it would have been so much better.
0:12 Dewey where’d ya limp go?
0:15 Kirby you’re hot but you can’t drive for shit.
0:17 I’m glad Gale’s hair doesn’t look like it got pecked on by a bird anymore.
0:21 The way this all starts up again is very anticlimactic.
0:24 I like lemon squares.
0:26 This whole movie jinxed their real life marriage
0:30 It’s so weird that Sidney isn’t the young teenager anymore, but I like how far the series has come.
0:38 I’m sure Emma Roberts would be a good actress if she got the right part, but she is SO bland.
0:54 If Kirby loves horror movies how can she call that place plant dork!? What a hypocrite!
0:56 Hahah Stab, a Robert Rodriguez film.
1:11 I want Kirby.
1:17 Who invited you, Trevor!? Get out of my house!
1:19 I wonder if the killer was shocked when the guy said he was gay, cause that was hilarious.
1:24 Kirby why aren’t you real.
1:28 Jill you are a psycho bitch!
1:30 Emma Roberts was not right for this role, because I love the motive behind the killers and she doesn’t bring it.
1:35 The scene Jill getting moved to the ambulance is perfect.
1:41 I like the way you die, Jill. Clear. Clear? Clear.

Overall: #Scream4 was more of a meta horror film for itself instead of the rest of the genre and reboots/remakes, if that makes any sense, and it totally works. I love the reasoning for the murders to start up again, and (save for one exception) the acting was good and convicting.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Scream 3” (2000)

Sidney_Scream_3

Our resident Twitter reviewer Tim Schilling is continuing his Scream marathon with the often overlooked “Scream 3.” I’ve always had a good time with this sequel. Let’s see if Tim does as well….

Thoughts before watching:
Does #Scream3 get all the shit it deserves? Well, I’m not sure because I don’t really even remember this one

Thoughts while watching:
0:04 Cotton’s an asshole driver.
0:09 I liked Cotton. I wish he wasn’t killed off.
0:09 This intro wasn’t bad but it doesn’t even touch the first two movies.
0:10 Gale, what did you do to your hair!?
0:24 Isn’t being 35 playing a 21 year old a compliment?
0:32 How could they automatically assume they are killing people in order of the script after two deaths?
0:33 This totally has to be Joe from Family Guy.
0:37 Sidney hearing her mother like that definitely has to be a Psycho reference.
0:43 Did not expect the killer to be on the phone at all.
0:47 Pow right in the kisser!
0:50 Awkward hug.
1:09 This is so similar to New Nightmare.
1:17 If you were a screening room, where would you be?
1:26 I wish Sidney was in this movie more. (Yes I know there is a reason.)
1:27 I don’t get how Dewey is still alive at this point.
1:37 Lame killer.
1:37 Well he’s not that bad I guess. It’s just so out there.
1:44 This guy obviously doesn’t know the rules to a horror movie.
1:48 Aw shucks Dewey.

Overall: While #Scream3 wasn’t as smart and as self referencing as the first two, it is still really good. I think it tries too hard to connect all three movies and ways it works and others it doesn’t. It doesn’t deserve all the hate it gets.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Scream 2” (1997)

scream2

Our resident Twitter reviewer Tim Schilling is back with another tweet by tweet review looking at the scary slasher sequel “Scream 2.” A few people find this one to be even better (ME! ME! ME!) than the original. Let’s see if he does as well.

Thoughts before watching:
Out of all the movies in the series, I’ve seen #Scream2 the least. That’s a shame.

Thoughts while watching:
0:02 I think going to a showing like this would be tons of fun.
0:03 Doing the whole movie in a movie thing based on the first movie is seriously a stroke of genius.
0:07 Scary Movie 2 ruined the bathroom scene for me.
0:10 I love the opening scene to this one, almost as much as the first.
0:17 The horror genre was destroyed by sequels.
0:25 Pow right in the kisser.
0:33 I never realized this but they made it obvious there were two killers early on.
0:40 Dewey’s hobble is hilarious.
0:50 Oh Tori Spelling.
0:52 I wish Randy was a real person.
0:59 I’d actually like to see this play Sidney is in.
1:05 Not Randy!!
1:12 I loved that they used the character Cotton in this.
1:18 Get it Dewey.
1:27 Ghostface, you made a mess.
1:30 The killer is unconscious, why would you not see who it is/bash his/her face in!?
1:37 Imagine how guilty all those people are gonna feel for hanging Derek up there in the first place.
1:48 Poor Aunt Jackie.
1:52 I already said this but I LOVE how they use Cotton in this movie.

Overall: If anything, #Scream2 is even more genius than the first one. Almost every single line takes all the cliches of horror movies and sequels twists them up and makes it it’s own amazingly smart movie.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Scream” (1996)

scream_movie_poster

This week our tweet by tweet Twitter reviewer Tim Schilling is back to cut in the “Scream” franchise. Here is his review for the original ground breaking classic.

Thoughts before watching:
How do I introduce a movie like this? #Scream

Thoughts while watching:
0:02 This opening scene made me run and cry when I first saw it. Not even joking. I was like 10.
0:03 Because I want to know who I’m looking at.
0:10 I really wish I could go back to the first time I saw this movie. I was TERRIFIED.
0:13 Casey just hanging there is so creepy.
0:20 You see so many different things each time you watch this movie no matter what.
0:28 This is the Mean Girls of horror movies. (It’s so damn quoteable.)
0:33 Did everyone really have a cell phone in 1996..?
0:35 I love Dewey and Tatum’s constant arguing.
0:37 POW right in the kisser. Bam bitch went down, Sid super bitch!
0:47 Maybe she’s a sluuuut just like her mother.
0:48 Sidney had the perfect chance right there to catch the killer.
0:50 I was so upset when I heard those two broke up in real life. They are so good for each other.
1:07 I spit on your garage.
1:08 Nooooo tatum! It gets me every time.
1:10 I’ve never really noticed this before, but does Craven use a different lens for some shots?
1:27 I love Gale, but she’s such a bitch in the first one that she deserved to crash.
1:33 I was in shock the first time I found out who the killers were. They got me gooooood.
1:43 Love the ending to this. Gale almost dies and still needs to report.

Overall: Well, #Scream is one of my all time favorites and it always will be. The countless references, great acting, awesome characters and actually creepy scenes make it one of the best horror movies ever made in my opinion.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Friday the 13th” (2009)

tumblr_mj87mwJgF11ro71ggo1_500

Tim Schilling is back to slice into the Friday the 13th remake. Does it hold up to the original or is it simply dead in the water?

Thoughts before watching:
Finishing the whoooole thing off with the remake of the original that started it all! By the way, I’m watching the “killer cut” edition, so I’m not sure if that makes any difference.

Thoughts while watching:
0:09 Something happen already.
0:10 Those aren’t real.
0:13 I love that song, but they played it for 20 seconds for no reason at all!
0:14 What a convenient time for a cop to drive by.
0:17 Hahahah gross.
0:24 I completely forgot that they didn’t show the title till just now. 24 minutes in.
0:27 First Asian character for this series? I mean it’s only 2009.
0:34 I wish something would happen already.
0:43 What a lame way he got his mask.
0:47 The scene on the lake is actually kind of cool only because she gets hit in the head with a boat.
0:55 Keeping that one girl alive contradicts everything the old Jason did.
1:02 What a snoozefest.
1:17 End.
1:24 I cannot wait for this guy to die.
1:27 Some parts remind me so much of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake. But not in the good way.
1:33 Oh no, a barn. Please don’t fuck up one of my favorite scenes in the series
1:40 The ending was typical but that was one of the few things I liked about this.

Overall: Production wise, #FridayThe13th (2009) actually wasn’t that bad. Story wise, it was painfully boring. I wanted it to end 45 minutes in and the actors looked like they had absolutely no chemistry together on screen, something even the older movies in the series had.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Freddy Vs. Jason” (2003)

Place-Your-Bets-freddy-vs-jason-25609486-1024-768

Tim Schilling is back to join Freddy AND Jason in a brand new tweet by tweet review, now looking at the film from “Jason’s” side.

Thoughts before watching:
Yes, I realize I already did a review for this movie. But this time I’ll be looking at it in the ‘Jason perspective.’

Thoughts while watching:
0:04 Just don’t question how Jason is alive and it all makes sense!
0:09 I think this is the first Friday the 13th/Nightmare on Elm Street movie I’ve ever seen actually.
0:13 The bed folding death is so gross.
0:14 What a convenient time for a cop to drive by.
0:28 This guy was trying to stop Freddy from coming back, but he goes and tells this in front of everyone. Good job.
0:33 Raaaaaaaveeeeee.
0:35 I love when that guy calls out Kia.
0:41 The dream part at the rave scene used to scare me so much.
0:54 Now that I think about it, this entire movie scared the shit outta me when I was a kid.
0:55 Legend has it? Jason killed hundreds of people!
1:05 Why are cops always useless?
1:06 Freddy pulled a Jason Goes to Hell.
1:07 Pinball Jason made me lol.
1:14 At least camp Crystal Lake is in driving distance from Elm Street.
1:18 His window fetish is back!
1:20 What is with the butter knifes? Kia is my favorite.

Overall: #FreddyVsJason is just awesome. The fight scenes are cool and it’s great to see these two guys in one movie.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Jason X” (2001)

Jason-X-horror-world-23602420-1024-768

Jason hits up space in “Jason X” and our resident Twitter reviewer Tim Schilling is there to join him with a brand new Tweet by Tweet review.

Thoughts while watching:
0:01 Shortest title sequence for a #FridayThe13th movie EVER!
0:04 If you don’t question how Jason survived the last movie, this makes total sense.
0:07 Just realized this is the first #FridayThe13th movie that was made when I was alive. Strange.
0:13 Hahahha hockey got outlawed.
0:15 I love that the entire earth isn’t even habitable anymore in this.
0:24 DVD isn’t even going to be a word in the year 2455.
0:27 EW stap it.
0:30 Honestly one of the best and nastiest deaths in this series right there.
0:38 The game sequence was so cool and actually pretty smart.
0:52 Jason just killed hundreds of people in seconds and no one ever talks about it.
1:05 Women can’t drive space ships.
1:10 No, he is not high. The first for this series.
1:13 New Jason is badass.
1:23 The second dream sequence is really cool too. It’s one of my earlier memories of this series.
1:27 There should have been a sequel. Because we all know Jason didn’t die.

Overall: #JasonX is too ridiculous to not like. Even so, I think it’s actually not that bad of a movie and really does work as a #FridayThe13th entry

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday” (1993)

Jason-Goes-to-Hell-horror-movies-24044143-1024-768

Our twitter reviewer Tim Schilling is back taking a look at the black sheep of the Friday the 13th series: Jason Goes to Hell. Scorned by critics and fans alike, how does it stack up 20 years later?

Thoughts before the film:
Besides Part 7, #JasonGoesToHell is the only movie in this series I have never seen. I get the feeling I should have kept it that way

Thoughts while watching:
0:00 Pshh watch it rated or unrated what kinda question is that
0:05 Jason, how did you come back to life this time?
0:07 What just happened.
0:13 I don’t get why they didn’t nuke Jason 7 movies ago.
0:15 This guy sounds like a dinosaur. That’s what he gets for eating Jason guts.
0:20 That news scene stuff couldn’t have been any cornier.
0:33 Geez they aren’t shy with the sex in this one.
0:36 The deaths in this one are kind of ridiculous.
0:49 Breaking his finger for information? This is fuckin dumb.
0:57 No no no no. Having the necronomicon in this is an insult to The Evil Dead.
1:06 POW right in the kisser.
1:12 Jason can only get shot so many times until there’s nothing even left to him.
1:15 I’m not sure if this plot really does make no sense or if I don’t care enough to really try to figure it out.
1:19 Jason’s a pedo.
1:27 The last scene ALMOST makes up for the entire movie. Almost.

Overall: I give credit to #JasonGoesToHell for trying to be different (it really was “different”) but no. Just no. The last scene is awesome though!

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan” (1989)

friday-the-13th-part-viii-8-jason-takes-manhattan-punks-gang

We are reaching the very end of the Paramount films as Tim Schilling takes on Jason as Jason Takes on Manhattan. Is it worth the trip? Let’s dig into the gory details..

Thoughts before the film:
I mean it’s called #JasonTakesManhattan, what else is there to say about it?

Thoughts while watching:
0:02 Instantly thought of Argento’s Demons during this opening scene.
0:10 Those are not intestines. Those are plastic tubes.
0:24 If Jason took over a boat the size of a cruise ship that would make this 100x better.
0:30 Another bitch character in this one.
0:33 They should never have killed off Ralph.
0:45 This should have been called Jason Takes a Boat and it would have been so much better.
0:53 Okay lying title where is Manhattan?
0:54 I don’t know if it’s the DVD versions I have but these last two movies have been edited so much.
1:03 Well now that there’s like a half hour left, they finally make it.
1:04 How’d they get the dog up the latter!
1:11 Pow right in the kisser.
1:20 Window fetish.
1:27 The chase scene through the city is so freaking cool.
1:27 HAHAH he took off his mask and they just ran.
1:34 Okay the ending of this is awesome.

Overall: If #FridayThe13th Part 8 #JasonTakesManhattan wasn’t called Jason Takes Manhattan, it would have been so much better (only because they lied to us). I liked the setting of the boat, it was actually really cool. The scenes in ‘Manhattan’ were also cool, just not be enough.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood” (1988)

fridaythe13thpart7newblood-troubledgirl

I love “The New Blood” but it is a rather hit or miss entry in the “Friday the 13th” series for many horror fans. Let’s see what Tim Schilling, our tweet by tweet movie reviewer has to say.

Thoughts before the film:
This is one of the films in the series I have not yet seen before. I hope that it’s a fraction as good as Part 6! #TheNewBlood

Thoughts while watching:
0:02 The flashbacks are back. Lame.
0:05 Longest opening credits ever?
0:07 Okay Carrie White what are you doing in this movie?
0:15 Carrie White what are you doing!
0:21 Jason is a zombie like 3 times over at this point.
0:26 At least is hasn’t been an hour into the movie until they finally show Jason killing people.
0:33 You go Carrie White, tell that bitch who’s boss.
0:35 I kind of like that they added a character like Melissa. It’s gonna be so good when she dies.
0:37 Kane Hodder is the best Jason.
0:48 They picked some goofy lookin actors for this one.
0:50 It’s getting ready to rain. Again.
1:01 There could have been 20 people named Michael in this series so for and I wouldn’t even know.
1:03 Weed is the biggest theme in this movie.
1:04 His window fetish is back.
1:07 Why the heck was that scene edited!?
1:08 Even Jason is like “what the fuck is Carrie White doing here!?”
1:16 Why is Melissa still alive.
1:17 I take that back. I like the way you die girl.
1:19 Jason is just so pretty.

Overall: Unfortunately #FridayThe13th Part VII #TheNewBlood went back to it’s boring ways again. I won’t even count the whole Carrie White thing because it was just completely random, and other than that, it was the same exact thing as the first 5 movies.
