Tim’s Horror Tweet Reviews: “Night of the Living Dead” (1968)

What better way to celebrate Halloween than by looking at a little zombie action? Our resident twitter reviewer Tim Schilling is back with reviews of George Romero’s zombie classics, “Night of the Living Dead,” “Dawn of the Dead,” and “Day of the Dead.” Now we take a look at the zombie film that many horror fans consider to be the greatest zombie film of all time.

Thoughts before the film:
No school the next two days = Romero marathon for Halloween. Hopefully the hurricane doesn’t knock the power out! #NightOfTheLivingDead

Thoughts while watching:
0:01 Love the opening scene to this, when the car is driving up the road.
0:05 I’m also watching the colorized version for the first time. It doesn’t look too bad!
0:06 They’re coming to get you, Barbra!
0:13 Barbra does the right thing most people don’t do in horror films: makes no noise at all.
0:14 …except when she goes into freak out mode and says nothing at all but nonsense.
0:26 Ben’s role was cast perfectly in this movie, I couldn’t see anyone else portraying him.
0:31 Bitch slaps for everyone!
0:40 The killers ARE eating the flesh!
0:43 God I hate Cooper.
0:54 Well the colorization looked good before, now it seems kinda saturated.
0:58 I like that we don’t know what is causing the zombies. And I hope Romero never tells us.
1:07 Barbra’s so useless by the end of the movie.
1:11 Tom you just so dumb.
1:16 The close up shots of the zombies are pretty creepy. It does a great job setting the mood.
1:24 True Life: My Daughter’s a Zombie.
1:25 Love the scene when her mother dies. So creepy.
1:33 Poor Ben.

Final Verdict:
It’s been so long since I’ve seen #NightOfTheLivingDead I forgot how much I love it. So iconic. Every scene is memorable. Just like @FabioPanetta said, it was way ahead of its time. Shot great and good performances from its cast.

Tim’s Horror Tweet Reviews: “House on Haunted Hill” (1959)

It’s been a long and lonely October without a Tim’s Horror Tweet Review but never fear slasher fans, we are back with a brand new Twitter review from Tim Schilling on a classic of the horror genre. Today Tim is looking at the legendary Vincent Price staple, “House on Haunted Hill.” Does it hold up 50 years later? Let’s find out…

Thoughts before the film:
Don’t know why, but I am so excited to see this. I don’t know how I haven’t yet!

Thoughts while watching:
0:03 This is reminding me so much of Clue. Which came first, this movie or the board game?
0:05 This doesn’t even look like a house, it looks like a giant prison. It’s still creepy.
0:10 “Remember the fun we had when you poisoned me?”
0:16 Older movies like this are far more interesting to learn how they were made than most filmed today.
0:20 When that lady thing walked through the doorway and then out: SO CREEPY.
0:22 Apparently it was a ghost, but whatever. Still creepy.
0:25 This old witch is gonna give me a heart attack.
0:28 B&W film interests me so much,& not cheap B&W filters used today,but actually shot in B&W.The shadows are awesome.
0:45 This dude has had like 4 of his wives die on him.. Give up already.
1:00 Why do I feel like everyone wants to get it on with this dead girl.
1:02 Oh a twist a twist!
1:06 This skeleton guy is so cool!
1:07 But really though, the skeleton was moving really slow and the room was pretty big. She coulda ran away.

Final Verdict:
Totally glad that #HouseOnHauntedHill was as good as I thought it was gonna be. Probably one of the creepiest movies I’ve seen in a while. More old black and white horror movies to come!

Tim’s Horror Tweet Double Feature Review: “Return of the Living Dead & Return of the Living Dead II”

What’s better than one horror tweet by tweet review to start off a horror filled weekend? Well two horror tweet by tweet reviews, of course. Tim Schilling, our resident Twitter reviewer, is back with a double feature of one of the great zombie double features of all time “Return of the Living Dead” & “Return of the Living Dead II.” Tim is a HUGE zombie fan but do these 80’s zombie comedies slay him? Let’s find out..

Thoughts before the film:
Corny zombie movies don’t get better than this gem from the 80’s. #ReturnOfTheLivingDead

Thoughts while watching:
0:05 This might be the only zombie movie ever made where people have actually heard of zombies beforehand.
0:08 Leak? Oh hell no! *BANG* cue the 80’s music.
0:13 That would suck to get that chain on your face pulled off…
0:14 Such an awesome cemetery.
0:16 Yeah, deodorant, that’ll do it.
0:18 Lololol that vision test on the wall says ‘Burt is a slave diver’ I’ve never noticed that before!
0:20 Dancin naked in the graveyard.
0:26 Damn zombie making such a ruckus.
0:28 Such a strange group of friends.
0:37 Whenever something bad happens, awesome music starts playing.
0:44 I love tar man. BRAINS! Brains!
0:53 These zombies are pretty good at sneak attacks.
0:55 Woooo go midget zombie!
1:04 The scene when they’re talking to the girl zombie is pretty creepy.
1:08 Over acting is perfectly okay in this movie.
1:16 Zombies have feelings too you know.
1:23 “I see, it’s understandable you wanted to cover this up so you wouldn’t get in trouble. I see.”
1:25 The answer to everything is nukes.

Final Verdict:
I don’t think I need to explain that I absolutely love #ReturnOfTheLivingDead. There isn’t a single thing wrong with the movie. It’s way too much fun to hate. And as always: the 80’s rock.

Thoughts before the film:
I just really like zombies. Great way to start off October. #ReturnOfTheLivingDead2

Thoughts while watching:
0:04 Spider-Man comic, nice choice.
0:08 Hey didn’t you guys die in the last movie!? (I obviously know they’re different characters.)
0:13 I don’t know why I like the setting of this movie. A housing complex under construction. So random.
0:18 It reminds me so much of Creepshow when the kid is in his room reading comics.
0:22 I love tar man. I think I said that last night too but whateva.
0:28 I don’t know why, but I love the screams the zombies make in these movies. So funny.
0:37 “Get that damn screwdriver out of my head!”
0:39 Zombies need to stay in shape too you know.
0:44 Hooligans!!
0:45 Possibly the coolest doctor ever.
0:47 Everyone just yells at the kid, give him a chance! He actually knows what to do.
1:02 That poor pet store.
1:05 So rich and spicy! Spicy? Yeah!
1:08 Who’s Harry Truman?
1:10 Zombie what are you doing driving that car!
1:22 Fried zombie is my favorite. Coming soon to the Big E.
1:25 Screwdriver zombie how did you make it that far? That’s okay cause you’re hilarious anyways.

Final Verdict:
I feel the same way about #ReturnOfTheLivingDead2 as I did the first. So funny, so much fun to watch, and just impossible to hate.

Both films:

Tim’s Horror Tweet Reviews: “Fright Night” (1985)

I’ve made it no secret “Fright Night” is my favorite vampire film of all time. It’s creepy, funny, and oh so very 80’s. Today, our resident twitter review Tim Schilling sinks his teeth into the original “Fright Night” to see if the film still has some bite today.

Thoughts before the film:
Not gonna lie the 1st time I watched this I didn’t really like it.My taste has changed so much since,I hope its better this time.

Thoughts while watching:
0:10 Amy’s got a stick up her ass.
0:11 Well maybe she doesn’t cause you know, but you know what I mean.
0:18 Well obviously the new neighbor is a vampire. I thought the same thing.
0:20 This is gonna make it awkward every time you go outside and you see your neighbor.
0:22 I want this dude’s car.
0:24 Mom you’re a psycho! Never invite a vampire into your house.
0:29 I hope you’re gonna pay for a new door.
0:32 Great makeup and prosthetics. Better than almost everything these days.
0:34 Oh thanks for waking up now mom I almost died a minute ago.
0:36 They totally Should make a show that’s like the Fright Night in this.
0:40 I wanna trick my bedroom out like this. No vampires allowed.
0:50 Who gets used to being called a vampire?
0:56 If this guy watched as many horror movies as it seems he would know not to go down that alley!
0:57 The shots of him flying are way too cool.
1:03 Vampires can go to the club too if they want. #VampireEquality
1:06 This reminds me so much of Mom’s got a Date with a Vampire.
1:09 80’s music is too damn good.
1:19 Haha, when he just walks away from the cross groaning.
1:24 Practical effects > CGS (computer generated shit).
1:24 That transformation scene was incredible though. It looked so great.
1:40 You’re so cool, Brewster!

Final Verdict:
#FrightNight was a ton of fun to watch. It has some of the best practical effects I have ever seen I think, they are so different over the top which make them even more great. Perfect example of the 80’s horror and why it’s still the best decade for the genre!

Tim’s Horror Tweet Reviews: “Puppet Master II” (1990)

Our resident twitter reviewer Tim Schilling is back with another tweet by tweet review looking at the next movie in the Puppet Master series: Puppet Master 2. This was the first of the series I saw at a very young age and the weirdness of the film has grown on me over the years. But..is the film too weird for Tim or does the bizarre nature of this sequel still hold some appeal?

Thoughts before the film:
What am I getting myself into…

Thoughts while watching:
0:02 Is there actually a story/any continuity to this one?
0:08 I don’t get why ghost hunters are in the hotel… There were like 3 survivors that saw killer puppets. Not ghosts!
0:10 Damn rednecks.
0:21 Okay so there’s some kind of story to this one… I think.
0:24 What would a ghost hunter REALLY think of if they saw a possessed puppet run across their monitor?
0:28 That guy with the face mask thing was terrifying.
0:36 Why would the puppets even waste their time killing these rednecks?
0:38 Oh I see, there was an actual story going on so they needed to kill the rednecks.
0:48 Whatever plot this established in the beginning is long gone now, I have no idea what’s going on.
1:00 These movies are very forgettable. I can’t follow a thing that’s going on.
1:10 Everyone is dying the same way… By that puppet that lights people on fire.
1:11 Gross you can put your mask back on.
1:17 What’s with the green blood in this series?
1:20 What the heck was that creepy life size puppet woman thing!? I’m sure I would know what it was if this story made any sense AT ALL.

Final Verdict:
Like the first one, #PuppetMaster2 made no sense at all. Whatever was there for a story was changing every five minutes by something that was even more confusing. Also, the puppets were lame compared to the first. They weren’t even funny!

Tim’s Horror Tweet Reviews: “Puppet Master” (1989)

If you were a horror movie kid growing up in the late 80’s and early 90’s with cable, there was only one place to turn for horror delights: USA Network. With programs like Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Hitchhiker, Saturday Nightmare, and Up All Night, there was plenty of horror treats to go around. If there was one series USA Network loved more than any it was the Puppet Master series. Killer dolls, a beautiful score, and some awesome Full Moon goodness, “Puppet Master” was a step above the direct to video norm and USA took full advantage of it. Ahh..those were the days. Taking a look at the original “Puppet Master”, Tim Schilling is back with a brand new twitter review.

Thoughts before the film:
I have no idea why I want to watch this series so bad recently. It seems just absolutely ridiculous, but here we go!

Thoughts while watching:
0:03 Is this considered a slasher? I really don’t know much about these movies.
0:08 All this is doing so far is making me want to watch Pinocchio.
0:18 What the heck kinda doctors are these!?
0:22 Is there an actual story to this or is it just a bunch of random scenes?
0:34 This makes no sense. Like at all.
0:38 That puppet is pretty damn ugly.
0:48 For real this movie has a different story line every 5 minutes.
0:50 I love the puppets though. They’re so cool the way they move.
0:54 This puppet is puking up leaches. Okay what the heck.
1:00 Actually this is reminding me of and making me want to watch Small Soldiers. LOVE that movie.
1:02 Why do you make no sense, plot?
1:13 This scene is reminding me of Happy Birthday to Me.
1:17 These puppets are badass.
1:24 That ending was way too confusing. Like I didn’t have a hard enough time trying to follow the story!

Final Verdict:
Besides having almost no plot at all and ridiculously confusing, #Puppetmaster was still interesting to say the least. It’s a very weird movie, something you can’t really explain unless you show them the entire thing. The puppets were hilarious and awesome though.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “A Nightmare on Elm Street” (2010)

Horror remakes are actively hated among most in the horror world. Why remake a movie that was perfect the first time? That being said, they are instant moneymakers at the box office and the “Nightmare on Elm Street” remake was no exception grossing over $120 million worldwide on a $35 million budget. This film instantly became the “most hated” of the major horror franchise remakes. Tim Schilling investigates in his tweet by tweet review that this new “Nightmare” may not be as bad as it seems.

Thoughts before the film:
Finishing off my ANOES series of reviews with the remake of the movie that started it all. I do like this one for the record.

Thoughts while watching:
0:04 Mmm Rooney Mara.
0:09 I love the original Freddy, but the one in the remake isn’t bad. He’s so creepy.
0:14 It’s impossible to top the original scene when Freddy’s face goes through the wall.
0:20 I love the scene when the chick falls asleep in class, the whole thing just looks great.
0:30 Somethings in this movie are done better than the original and some way way worse.
0:36 His computer just went into sleep mode,since this is supposed to be a modern reimage would Freddy go after that?
0:42 I’d be the first one to die in one of these movies. I love sleep too much.
0:48 I don’t know how I feel about the pedo Freddy backstory.
0:53 Why would you tell your daughter she was abused as child in front of her friends? Bitch move.
1:00 Freddy in this one just isn’t on Elm Street, he can be wherever these kids moved to.
1:03 I don’t think micro naps are a real thing… Are they?
1:07 I bet they were just in a Walgreens. Ew.
1:27 Come on Freddy just die.
1:28 I love that nancy says you’re in my world now bitch instead of Freddy.

Final Verdict:
I don’t think the remake of #ANightmareOnElmStreet is bad at all. You can’t really compare it to the original because there are a lot of things different about it. It was kind of a remake of a few different Freddy films. The movie looked great too,very dark, & decent acting.

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

After the dismal box office but creative success of “Wes Craven’s New Nightmare,” it took New Line Cinema nearly a decade to create the ultimate Nightmare. One in which Freddy would finally meet his match in the form of Jason: “Freddy Vs. Jason” in fact. The film was a huge hit at the box office grossing $83 million and becoming the number one movie in America for two weeks in a row. How does it stand a decade later and which side are you on? Tim Schilling answers both in a brand new tweet by tweet review.

Thoughts before the film:
I’ve seen this one tons of times, but after watching the entire ANOES series, I think I can watch this in a different way.

Thoughts while watching:
0:06 Jason comes back to life for no reason at all every single time, I won’t even bother.
0:14 This may have been one of the first slasher movies I’ve seen, I always remember the guy getting squished by the bed.
0:18 Laurie’s boobs are distracting.
0:26 In Freddy’s Dead there wasn’t a single kid in the entire town, now there’s enough to fill an entire high school?
0:29 What if someone was in a coma and they lived on Elm Street… You’re fucked.
0:34 Raaaaaaaaaaveeeeee. I love this scene.
0:37 Get actors that actually look like they’re high school age.
0:40 Glow stick man is a creep.
0:43 I just don’t understand how someone can’t runaway from Jason.
0:47 The backstory to this movie is so weak.
0:52 Freddy’s back bitchez.
0:56 The part where Laurie thinks she’s awake talking to everyone at the table is so funny.
1:06 The fight scenes between Freddy and Jason are too awesome to hate.
1:13 Oh yeah make out with Jason.
1:17 I love the way Freddy is brought into the real world to fight.
1:20 #TeamFreddy.

Final Verdict:
#FreddyVsJason is way too much fun to hate. The whole movie is just a cool idea that, while I didn’t think was perfect, but was still good. I thought it was more a Freddy movie than a Jason one. A sequel should have been made with that killer ending.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Wes Craven’s New Nightmare” (1994)

After the somewhat lackluster “Freddy’s Dead”, Freddy seemed to be dead and buried for at least a few years. It, however, was in 1994 that Wes Craven came up with the radical idea of bringing Freddy back for another nightmare…a “New Nightmare”. Gone was funny Freddy and the fresh looking 80′s MTV teenagers and in was a concept so unique and groundbreaking that it just couldn’t work? Or could it…. Tim Schilling finds out with a brand new tweet by tweet review of “Wes Craven’s New Nightmare.”

Thoughts before the film:
Really, really excited to see this one. I saw parts of it a long time ago and really liked it.

Thoughts while watching:
0:03 Yay for Nancy/Heather!
0:10 This movie is pretty crazy already.
0:20 Wes Craven, not doing horror movies? Hah!
0:27 Dylan is so creepy, but adorable at the same time. Just like in Pet Sematary.
0:35 Why would the police say it’s an accident when there’s claw marks all the way down his chest!?
0:39 They got basically everyone but Johnny Depp back.Just cause Tim Burton didn’t make this doesn’t mean you can’t be in it.
0:49 What if Robert actually is Freddy and just screwing with everyone!?
0:56 I can’t remember her name but I love the lady who was in the hospital with them, she was the teacher in the first one.
1:02 Just noticing the huge similarities between this and Scream.
1:05 Basically this movie is the movie Wes has been writing in the movie. Wat.
1:18 All of these nurses are bitches.
1:23 That highway scene was one of the most epic scenes in a horror movie I have ever watched.
1:27 Oh my god, when he turns around in the cop uniform and plays the character again.
1:39 Yes. All of the references to the original.
1:43 Wes you trolled all of us!

Final Verdict:
#NewNightmare was probably one of the most epic horror movies I’ve ever seen. Awesome story that actually made sense with all the other movies in the series. Super smart, great performances from basically everyone, and perfect music that makes it seem even more epic.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare” (1991)

We are now back from Indianapolis with TEDDY by our side (updates later on all the details of Horrorhound Weekend) with another Nightmare review. This time on the black sheep of the series: Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare. While successful at the box office, both critics and fans took a beating to this one. Is it really THAT bad? Tim Schilling finds out with a brand new tweet by tweet review.

Thoughts before the film:
I love this series so far. Everyone says this is the bottom of the barrel. I can handle bad. Let’s go.

Thoughts while watching:
0:03 Dreams where you’re falling are the worst, I have em all the time.
0:04 Okay Freddy, Wicked Witch of the West.
0:11 Where did Alice go?
0:21 6 booths… Some town fair these people have.
0:26 This town is actually pretty cool now. The ppl are all crazy cause there aren’t kids anymore & it’s basically abandoned.
0:32 I can see how the tricycle is kind of symbolic, but showing it in every single shot possible ruins it.
0:36 Carlos’ dream really makes no sense at all.
0:41 This is Freddy’s what, fourth kid? It’s not a big deal anymore.
0:43 Thanks for the video on drugs Johnny Depp. Very insightful.
0:46 Freddy sucks at killing people. Go back to human puppets and maybe I’ll take that back.
0:47 So what, is everyone a dream warrior now?
0:53 I love it when the person they made out to be the main character of the movie dies 50 minutes in.
1:03 Every town has an Elm Street.
1:08 The dream people gave him this job, does that mean there’s more people like Freddy!?
1:15 I actually really like that they’re showing Freddy’s past. It’s kinda cool.
1:22 Freddy is getting so messed up right now.
1:25 Wow, that was possibly the most lame and boring way to end a movie/supposed to be end of a series.

Final Verdict:
I thought the plots of 4 & 5 were confusing, but #FreddysDead made no sense at all. Jumped all over the place & was just hard to follow. Uninteresting characters, and the awesome effects from the other movies were gone. What I did like was the backstory they told of Freddy.
