Unpopular Opinion: Take a Slash at “Prom Night” (2008)

prom_night

This remake of the 1980 Jamie Lee Curtis slasher is considered one of the most hated horror film amongst the horror community. Hearing the various reasons, it is understandable. However, I am stepping up the plate and admitting that I personally really enjoy this film, much more so than the original. I can only imagine how much outrage this will cause, but this is my unpopular opinion piece.

So the basic story here is a teacher becomes obsessed with a female students and ends up murdering her family in order to get to her. He gets arrested and years later he breaks out and comes back for her on her prom night, killing anyone who gets in his way. It definitely sounds like a Lifetime movie, but technically when you take the basic plot of Halloween, you could say the same thing. The original involves the death of a young girl accidentally caused by the child classmates of hers. Years later, someone is out for revenge against the kids…on their prom night! Let me start by saying that I still enjoy the original Prom Night, it has its fun moments, and of course there’s Jamie Lee Curtis, but bare in mind I’m not trying to bash it.

My first defense of the Prom Night remake is that the overall plot and situation is much more frightening. Even though a man in an all black outfit chasing after you with an ax is pretty scary, there’s just something more terrifying about someone who is so crazed that he doesn’t even disguise himself to come after you. Not to mention a stalker who murdered your family to take you away. The way Johnathan Schaech carries the character makes it extra creepy. While we’re on the topic of the killer, I just gotta say that between the two, I would much rather have seen an unmasked known killer going around killing people, than a killer that is predictable from the get-go in the original. Unlike most revenge slashers of the 80s, there was at least a sense of mystery, this most certainly wasn’t the case here.

Next there are the main group of teenagers. The original had teens that were pretty unlikable with the exception of Jamie’s character and her love interest. In the remake, the friends may not be astounding, but they come off as likable, with the character of Michael being the only real douchebag. I enjoyed the chemistry amongst the actors and they came off as real friends, so it was almost sad to see them killed off. Sure they had traits that made them unlikable at times, but that’s teenagers for you. Included in these characters are the main leads. Brittany Snow stars as the main character Donna who is the prime target of the killer. I will say there’s no defense of Donna as a final girl, she is very weak, and very whiney. This may not be a defense but bare with me here. Jamie Lee Curtis in the original only came off as the lead because she was the big name of the cast, but in all reality, she might as well have not been in the film. Her character is never in any real danger and has no real purpose other than to take down the killer at the end. It’s Jamie’s love interest and the other teens who are actually the main characters. So while Donna is a shitty final girl, she at least has a purpose and is actually a target.

Finally, and probably the biggest thing that makes horror fans hate the film, is the fact that it’s a PG-13 slasher. When I think about it, the original film could easily just have been PG-13, the kills are hardly that bloody or massively graphic. In the remake, while there is an absent of blood, there isn’t that much of a difference in terms of the blood/gore factor between the two.

Yes, the best part about slashers are the excellent kills, but when I think about it, as long as we get a body count and the kills are on-screen, it’s hardly the end of the world. There are several horror films where the kills are completely off-screen that are rated R even (Chernobyl Diaries and even the original Friday the 13th had off-screen deaths with no blood shown). There is minimal blood shown in the remake, but point being we’re still seeing these characters getting stabbed and slashed right on screen. Am I asking for more PG-13 slashers? Hell no, but if they will actually show on-screen deaths with not much blood, it’s semi-forgivable, even if it’s not preferable. On a final note, the original had the amazing chase scene with Wendy, but no real pay off when she dies. In the remake we get a small chase scene, with a pay off seeing Lisa (my personal favorite of the characters) getting her throat slashed and blood splattered at the screen. So it’s fairly even ground there.

So while the original Prom Night has its moments where it’s enjoyable, there are more reasons in which I found the remake more enjoyable and tolerable, even if it’s still at the bottom of the totem pole of slasher films. Bring on the backlash!

Underrated Slashers: “Cry Wolf” (2005) Review

1010

After being kicked out of his previous school for bad behavior, Owen Matthews (Julian Morris) is sent to a small prep school where he instantly falls for the lovely and wild, Dodger (Lindy Booth). He also meets his Texas loving roommate Tom (Jared Padalecki), the sexual Mercedes (Sandra McCoy), her theatrical boyfriend Lewis (Paul James), the artistic Regina (Kristy Wu), the group pervert Randall (Jesse Janzen), and the scholar Graham (Ethan Cohn). He also develops a bond with his teacher Rich Walker (Jon Bon Jovi). After a town girl is murdered in the woods, the friends decide to have a little fun with their campus by creating a killer called The Wolf. They send out an e-mail detailing the killer’s appearance and his killing pattern that he uses from school to school. However, when the e-mail gets sent out, the group starts to find themselves being stalked and being sent e-mails from someone calling themselves The Wolf. Owen starts to believe that there really is a killer out there and using their e-mail against them. His friends laugh off his claims, that is until The Wolf finally strikes begins killing off this herd of sheep one by one.

2005 was quite a drought for slasher films. With the exception of the remake of House of Wax, slasher films that year was non-existent. However, when trailers began to appear for this little slasher film, I became excited immediately. It had been quite a while since there was slasher film involving a masked killer stalking young teens. On top of this, I was very much intrigued by the storyline. I was bummed when I found out this was PG-13, but I tried to have some faith. So when September 16, 2005 came, I was right there in the theater eagerly waiting for it start. By the time the movie was over, I admit I was pretty blown away. I had fun with this movie all the way through. The young cast did very well with their stereotype characters. Lindy Booth really stands out the most of the teens as Dodger. It’s a shame she still isn’t in more horror movies. Even Jon Bon Jovi did very well in his role. The storyline itself kept me engaged the whole time. It kept me guessing who The Wolf could be, and who would make it out alive. I found myself so entranced in the film that I forgot it was PG-13, an R-rating would have been nice, but in this case, the PG-13 actually did work with the storyline. The biggest weakness I always find with this movie is that its characters are SO underdeveloped with the exception of Morris, Booth, and Padalecki. The film runs at 90 minutes including credits, so there easily could have been room for more screen time for the underused characters. For those who have NOT seen this film, I’m trying to keep this review as spoiler-free as possible, but I just have to say I did not see the final twist
coming at all.

Trashy & Exploitative, “Maximum Overdrive” is a Maximum Guilty Pleasure

Maximum Overdrive sputtered and died on its way to theater and television screens. It was a victim of heightened expectations for first time director Stephen King, and the movie underwhelmed the world with its cornball gore and throbbing AC/DC soundtrack. More than 25 years later, it may finally be time to appreciate this 1986 movie as the trashy exploitation film it was meant to be appreciated.

King adapts his own short story “Trucks” for the big screen. The movie trots out a flimsy “comet in space” story to rationalize a world where machines come to life and attempt to destroy humanity. From there, King places the action at a truck stop where a group of people, led by star Emilio Estevez, try to stay alive and escape semi-trucks aiming to splatter them up and down the highways.

The mistake people make in watching Maximum Overdrive is assuming Emilio Estevez is the star of the show. He isn’t: The AC/DC soundtrack is. The droning, electric blue-inspired buzzsaw of their greatest songs haunts the film and sets the tone. This isn’t a film about surprises or tension. This is a film about bad attitudes and bleak future outlooks. Critiquing the film based on plot and character development damns it quickly, but ignoring those elements to focus on the tone of the movie gives viewers a grisly, sarcastic view of modern frustrations.

AC/DC updates American blues music with a dirty, electric swagger. Maximum Overdrive, in a way, is the AC/DC of haunted house films. The “ghosts” have become the machines all around us. If the film lacks resolution, so does this electronic and mechanical world.

PG-13 Horror We Love: “Poltergiest III” (1988) Review

Hearing Kevin Sommerfield (editor’s note: That’s me!!) talking about Poltergiest 3 in his review made me what to talk about how I feel about this film. Poltergeist 3 is so underrated, and the most hated film in the series. But for me, I love it and it’s my favorite sequel by far.

Carol Anne (Heather O’ Rourke) has been sent to live with her Uncle, Aunt, and cousin in a tall Chicago apartment building. When Carol Anne is trying to move on from her past, and forget what happen to her, the dark evil preacher, Kane, is back for Carol Anne, and causing chaos for Carol Anne and her family. Will Carol Anne, and her family be able to stop Kane or will Kane win in the end?

Like I said, Poltergeist 3 is the most hated film in the franchise and it is very underrated. But for me, I love it and it really deserves more respect as a film in the franchise. I actually prefer it over Poltergeist 2 (1985) because it is totally different compared to the previous two films. I love the fact that it takes place in a tall Chicago building with mirrors for walls because that creates something creepy especially when you see Kane through the mirrors and the fact that even though Carol Anne has so many places to hide Kane always seems to find her. Also, Kane himself in this film is creepy too and he is one of the reasons why this movie creeped me out as a kid, and kinda still creeps me out now. I also love the actors and actresses in this film especially Nancy Allen, Lara Flynn Boyle, and Heather O’ Rourke. It is sad to always watch the film though because of Heather O’ Rourke passing before the film was finished. But out of everything in this film, Heather O’ Rourke really holds the film up to being as great as it is. I don’t think the film would be as good if Heather O’ Rourke wasn’t in it.

Also, the film has great effects, and scenes that you will remember when you finish watching it like the parking garage scene with the snow, the puddle scene in the parking garage, when Carol Anne first gets attacked by Kane, the opening scene, the last scene involving Nancy Allen’s character and Kane, when a character gets their skin pulled off the side of their face, and much more. Also, the atmosphere is another reason that the film works so well because it creates some chilling moments when you watch it. Poltergeist 3 isn’t as good as Poltergeist (1982),but it is by far my favorite sequel in the series and one of my favorite PG-13 horror films. I don’t think the whole family would be able to watch this film and even the series with younger kids,but if teenagers want to start getting into horror films then I recommend this film along with Part 1 and 2.

Underrated Horror Flicks: “Alice Sweet Alice,” “Arcade,” and “Twisted Nightmare” Mini Reviews

Over at Slasher Studios Horror Film Club we are discussing our picks for underrated horror movies that deserve more acclaim that they have received. All week we have been updating our page with reviews of these forgotten treasures and today we have for you a couple of mini reviews for horrors that doesn’t deserve to be forgotten.

Alice Spages is a withdrawn 12 year old girl who lives with her mother, Catherine, and her younger sister, Karen. Karen gets most of the attention from her mother, and Alice is often left out of the spotlight. But when Karen is found brutally murdered in a church before her first holy communion, all suspicions are turned towards Alice. But is a twelve year old girl really capable of such savagery? As more people begin to die at the hands of a merciless killer, Alice becomes more and more likely of a suspect.

Alice, Sweet Alice is such an unappreciated gem! A young Brooke Shields is killed in church, and the prime suspect is her somewhat disturbed sister Alice (Paula Sheppard). Mix this with a creepy perverted landlord, a gruesome staircase slashing, some great cinematography, and a superb soundtrack, and you have yourself an eerie, nerve-wracking, 70’s chiller.
–RJ Sanchez

I remember watching this film on late night Showtime and loving it. I haven’t seen it in years, but I remember it was a great film, dealing with Virtual Reality and a killer Arcade machine. The effect were good for the time and the DVD currently features the original film version, I may need to pick it up. Another great film from Full Moon Entertainment.
–Eric Curto

“Twisted Nightmare” 1987. Underrated and Unknown. I own it on VHS. Still has a special place in my heart. One of the first horror movies I’ve seen. The story very familiar more or less. A group of young people in a camp, an insidious murderer on the loose and a chilling score complete the flick. Low budget no doubt, but as I always say, there’s nothing better than a practical effect instead of a computer made one.

Underrated 80’s Horror: “The Video Dead” (1987)

An absolutely underrated 80ies treasure. I’m so glad I invested money in this old battered VHS copy. Apparently MGM released a DVD? I have yet to find one.

Where else can you find a movie that has zombies come out of the t.v., zombies popping out of washing machines, zombies giggling and laughing as if they’re on acid, zombies killing with arrows and chainsaws, a messenger who calls himself the “Garbage Man”, a David Bowie ringleader zombie…

Got to love the plot. Burly drunk writer gets a mysterious old t.v. delivered to his house in suburbia that only has one channel that’s playing a movie called “Zombie Blood Nightmare”. Well the writer hates zombie movies and turns it off, but the movie keeps turning back on all by itself even without the cord plugged in. Well for reasons unknown to me, zombies come out of the t.v., and kill the writer. We don’t actually see the kill, but the next shot shows the writer dead with a party hat on his head. Yes, we have our first Zombie movie where the Zombies are more like Gremlins who love to party and have childish senses of humor. The scene where the Bride Zombie and Professor zombie start cackling insanely when they wreck the blender was so absurd. I joined them in their laughter.

Well, after the writer is killed a title is inserted “3 Months Later” and we then have the now vacant house of our for mentioned writer being bought by a family. Well for convenience of the plot just the two teenagers are arriving, mom and dad are in Egypt or some lamely thought up crap. The male teen meets up with a blonde skank down the block to investigate the now zombie mayhem that is ensuing. Did I forget to mention that during the 3 months the zombies just chilled out in the woods? Well after some shoddily so bad they’re great deaths (which I never thought I’d see as Zombie deaths) the movie begins to really get started.

The zombies don’t eat flesh, but instead hate humans because they remind them that their dead, so hence they kill them with gremlin like shenanigans. Well with the help of a fat Texan and some advice from our infamous “Garbage Man” (“get a mirror, and tape it on the outside of the t.v.”), our plucky teens fight the zombies, but they better be careful as the David Bowie zombie has grown affections ala Leatherface part 2 for our blonde skank.

After a lot of schemes involving a kick ass scene where our male teen is chased by bride zombie with a chainsaw, a dream sequence, a booby trap ploy with strings and ringing bells, the zombies are killed off by eating dog food and ballroom dancing, where they all go crazy and eat each other. (i’m not kidding).

You get the idea, absolutely pure genius film making here. VIDEO DEAD ROCKS!! Right up there with Slumber party massacre 2, Hell gate, and Troll 2.

It’s hysterically funny!

Underrated 80’s Slashers: “Curtains” (1983)

Ahh Curtains. A vastly underrated and overlooked Canadian [yeah baby!!!] slasher. I spent almost my whole life trying to find the love for this movie, as I didn’t have internet as a kid, my parents did buy me VideoHound yearly, and I was always saddened by the WOOF [zero stars] rating it gave it, they didn’t even give a proper synopsis, did they even watch it???

When I was 7 years old I came home to my sister and cousin slapping this on, they stopped watching, but I knew, even then, that this was one slick horror treat! I LOVE the artwork of this case, it’s so creepy! I have a huge poster that I have framed in my living room, proud to have it on display, it needs all the recognition it can get. I have fond memories of watching this late at night with root beer and popcorn!

The plot involves asshole director Stryker holding an audition for “Audra” the main character in his new movie, having his ex wife Samantha think she’s up for the role only to abandon her at a mental hospital, which she was using as research, and proceed with the casting of 6 hot new and up coming actresses at his remote cabin in the Ontario Wilderness. Someone joins the casting party wearing a old hag mask and carrying a creepy doll, with murder on the mind. Who is doing the slashing?

What I really like about this movie that probably won’t apply to everyone but the narrative is odd and even non linear, events are even random at times. Now you could blame the sloppy, undeveloped narrative on the producers clashing with the directors vision making the film confusing and filled with plot holes. I see that as actually adding to the movies dreamy atmosphere. That’s what I get from this movie, it’s like a dream of Patti while in the mental hospital. What really happened? How did Patti know where Amanda lived and how did she get the mask? What’s the deal with that doll? The stalk sequences (the ice rink and prop house) actually come off as if it’s someone’s dream. Can’t speak for everyone, but I’ve had dreams of being chased and the feeling and mood I felt in the dream was basically the whole prop house stalk scene. Why is it a maze? how did Sandee Currie get lost? All very dream like with the sound design adding to the creepy atmosphere. I LOVE the sound of the humming lights, especially when she walks through the mannequins. Very Kubrick inspired. The ice skating scene is terrifying and the slow motion yet again adds to the notion that this film is someone’s very disturbed mind while they sleep. Obsessed with acting, getting the role, and doing anything you can to get it, including murder, the hardcore phobias of the casting couch and becoming old before your dreams are fulfilled. I also have to comment on how when I do show this to people, they “get played like a piano” as the film moves along, they don’t see a lot of surprises coming and that is all you could ask for in a horror movie! A lot of the narrative twists really work, like the rape scene? I love how is plays with the perception of reality, what is real and what is staged, love it!

Now after reading AMAZING interviews on The Terror Trap with producer Peter Simpson, the down to earth, extremely lovable Lesleh Donaldson, the classy and compassionate Lynne Griffin, and the talented composer Paul Zaza and it answered all the questions I could possibly think of, plus some! Making me love the movie all the more on a whole personal level, and this film NEEDS a DVD release with a top notch transfer before I can rest in peace! The acting is very competent and composed, I just wish we got some more depth to some of the actresses, but than again, add that to the dream logic, do you know everyone’s back stories in a dream? Like Mathew, ha ha the perfect anonymous person in a dream. Who the hell was he? David Lynch would be proud!

I also love that it’s filmed in Ontario, the exterior of the cabin property look like my parents back yard, especially the ice skating area. Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba is VERY Curtains, I feel the need to wear a old hag mask while listening to “You Save My Soul” while cruising through the park.

The movie needs more love, and stop with the hate! It knocks out many slashers from the same era right out of the park! Elegance has never looked so good in a slasher flick! Luckily I’ve found some love for this flick thanks to Facebook, but it deserves MORE praise!!!!!!!

– Vince Fontaine

RIP Peter Simpson! thank you for all your contributions to the film industry, especially horror!

And RIP beautiful Sandee Currie, reading about your passing affected me greatly, and I thought about you for days afterwards. you truly were breathtaking in your beauty and personality!!! A tragic story.

Underrated Thrillers: “Kevin Smith’s Red State” (2011)

Many KS fans will agree that Kevin Smith certainly turned things around with this film, for years he has been applauded and criticized for his raunchy comedies, usually because each film had a controversial nature to it. Here, we get another dose of his controversial look into how the world can be backwards a lot of the time.

I think this film is amazing, its much different from not only Smith’s work before and it shows his growth as a filmmaker,but its different from a lot of what is done today. The violence of the film is there, but its not overshadowed by the story being told, the story is tole first and foremost and doesn’t take a backseat at gore(although, there is gore, just not too much). I loved the camera work, especially the scenes where the actor has a camera attached, it has a certain realism to it that makes you feel like your there, even more than the 3D films out there now.

Michael Parks is fucking awesome in this film, he really strikes cord with the viewers, as everyone has seen a person like this and he fits the role well. John Goodman takes on a role that is different from everyone else’s, as when you are through watching the film he appears to be the ONLY good guy in the film, as everyone else has done something to be consider a bad guy or at least immoral.

Take a look at it, its on Netflix, so you can check it out before committing to buying it. If ou want a great companion piece, check out the podcast “Red State of the Union Q&A’s”:

Underrated 80’s Thriller: “Mary Lambert’s Siesta” (1987)

This film is sadly overlooked, and the few Critic reviews on IMDB seem to despise this, I think it’s a masterpiece and underrated to the max. Not straight up horror, but definitely is macabre and mysterious with death underlying everything. It’s misunderstood.

I’m always interested in watching directors first movies, to see what they cut their teeth with and to also see if I can spot the aesthetics they would later use in their next features. Being a HUGE fan of the Stephen King adaption “Pet Sematary” (and even it’s mis-understood sequel) I always loved the visual approach that they had. There’s just something so absorbing about those films, I love there visual motifs. They were both directed by Mary Lambert, who is responsible for a handful of Madonna music videos (Material Girl, Like A Prayer, Like a Virgin, among many others) as well as countless other 80ies musicians, I spent years trying to obtain a copy of this, her first film.

No matter how bad some of the songs were that she directed videos for, I cannot deny the unique and sexy style she always brings to them. Seeing that I also never had a personal favorite female horror director, it seemed she passed the grade. So naturally I looked out for a copy of her first film, Siesta, and after many years of looking, I FINALLY got hold of a copy thanks to Ebay in 2005.

The movie opens with one of the most interesting ways I’ve seen a film start, with Claire (the super hot Ellen Barkin) waking up on an Airport landing strip in beautiful and mysterious Madrid, Spain, a huge jet plane landing over her, as she wakes up, wearing a sexy red dress, covered in blood with no recollection of who she is, how she got there,and just what the fuck is going on. She screams, runs down a highway, finds a stream, gets naked and lays in the stream, covering her hot body with water under the scorching sun. She then proceeds to run through the streets of the Madrid, and slowly begins to piece together what is going down, this aspect reminded me of Memento.

Along her confused frenzied journey, she meets Julian Sands and Jodie Foster, two carefree, party animals, she meets a sinister cab driver who looks like JAWS from the James bonds movies, he wants to rape her. She also keeps tripping out in one of the movies many wicked artistic touches of quick flashes of fantasy (or memory, or anticipation) in which she falls helplessly through the air. She attends some art party, gets a haircut, tries to obtain a fake passport from Grace Jones, walks a tightrope to a spanish tune and here and there has flashbacks of her lover, Gabriel Byrne, who use to be her teacher but is dumping her. She also remembers that she is a dare devil and has to free fall from a plane into a net that is on fire without any parachute. Sinister events happen, she runs here, she runs there, she also has wounds that disappear, and runs into a church and asks for forgiveness.

This narrative is confusing yes, but it’s one of those movies were the less sense it makes, the more you can’t stop watching. Eventually everything is resolved, and we find out the movie is about obsession, love and the necessity for accepting change, otherwise, you just makes things worse for yourself.

The soundtrack is by Miles Davis, and it suits the movie to a T. Very hypnotic. Jazz music rocks! I own this and listen to it all the time. It elevates the movie to superbness.

The acting is competent if not a little off at times (Mary Lambert had this same problem in PS1), with Ellen Barkin, Julian Sands, Jodie Foster, Gabriel Byrne, Martin Sheen, Isabella Rossellini, and comedian Alexei Sayle chewing up the scenery,looking like they are having a blast with such outrageous material. GREAT casting, someone buy this casting director a beer (or 10).

Big props to Mary Lambert, who infuses the movie with a one of a kind, stylish eye candy look. Dare I say she could be the female David Fincher? So many shots in here that made my mouth water. If it wasn’t those already mentioned sky diving shots, then it was the surreal art direction, hyper kinetic editing and trippy lighting. The cinematography was awesome, everything looked like a Gothic painting, and the set design was ambitious. I loved the religious imagery and subtle symbolism that was sprinkled throughout. I loved the way the red dress was used, against the back drop of the Spanish architecture. There is also some exteriors that were used in La Isla Bonita music video.

The movie had this undercurrent of unease as well as a sad, depressing ending that was very relate-able, anyone that has ever been in a relationship that ended badly and then refused to accept it would appreciate this movie,as it channels that emotional torment perfectly.

I got vibes from such flicks as Jacob’s Ladder, Mulholland Drive, Donnie Darko, Memento, Lost Highway, and Carnival of Souls from watching this, that’s a good thing.

A complex, mind fuck of a flick, that should be released on DVD already. My VHS copy is getting worn out, I own another as back up. I also finally got a copy of the book by Patrice Chaplin [Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter] in the United Kingdom and I had to pay 60CDN dollars for it but after reading it it was worth it. I also have a huge poster of this framed right next to Curtains and Pet Sematary!

Underrated Horror Flicks: “Killer Klowns from Outer Space” (1988)

My underrated movie choice has to be Killer Klowns from Outer Space. The film does get pretty decent reviews from horror fans but I just feel as if it doesn’t really get the credit it deserves.

One of my favorite things about it would have to be the special effects. There’s no CGI or computer effects in the film at all, adding to the raw feel of it. The klowns? Real costumes. The sets? Real locations. The finale scene? A miniature set. In my eyes, this is horror done right. Fun yet creepy. Weird yet laughable. Low budget yet good. This is one of those movies made by horror fans, for horror fans.

The overall atmosphere of the film makes you feel like you’re at a drive-in movie theater, and brings back that long dead feeling of movies that were fun. In recent years, films like Machete and Hobo with a Shotgun are reviving this feeling, and I personally think it’s the best thing that could ever happen in a world filled with movies about kings with speech impediments and iron ladies. So, before watching this film, remember that this isn’t like The Sixth Sense or Let Me In. The only emotion that should be felt by the viewers is happiness and enjoyment.

Now I know some Roger Ebert-loving movie snob will say it’s a terrible movie because the dialogue isn’t well written and the acting isn’t top notch and plot really doesn’t make sense. And do you know what I think about people like this and their opinions? If you don’t want to have fun watching a movie then go to a funeral or watch paint dry, because horror fans like to enjoy their movies, and Killer Klowns from Outer Space is one of the most entertaining movies ever made. I mean, how could it not be? It’s got clowns!
