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: “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: “Friday the 13th Part 3” (1982)

posterfriday

Our tweet by tweet reviewer Tim Schilling is back and this time he is taking a look at Friday the 13th Part III. A love it or hate movie in the series, I must admit that I have never been a fan of this installment. Let’s see what Tim has to say..

Thoughts before the film:
Part II was a HUGE improvement over the first one. At this point, the rest of the movies just blur together to me. #FridayThe13thPartIII

Thoughts while watching:
0:02 Flashbacks galore.
0:09 No Ginny in this one? I actually liked her.
0:12 Why can’t I have a rabbit walking around the store I work at?
0:14 Uh that’s fuckin gross I don’t need those sound effects.
0:18 They threw in the most awkward character ever in this movie.
0:21 Holy déjà vu. Can you get that from watching a movie?
0:22 They realized they killed Ralph too early in the series so they had to make this rip off guy.
0:30 I like Shelly. These movies need someone like him.
0:33 I’d go piss on those guys motorcycles. But knocking them over is just as good.
0:36 ….I kinda forgot Jason was in this movie until they just showed him now.
0:41 I hate these bikers. I can’t wait until they get it.
0:54 Don’t do it Shelly! Don’t you hear the creepy music? Not good!
1:01 Pow right in the kisser (I gotta say that at least once in each movie).
1:05 How did you not see a person laying underneath the hammock?
1:09 I always think of the barn scene when I’m talking about this series.
1:24 Jason almost dies like 7 times in this movie alone.

Overall: What’s with all the hate for #FridayThe13thPartIII!? I honestly think it’s just as good as Part II. Likable characters (and dislikable, in the good way), awesome ending (I love the barn scene), and it introduced the famous hockey mask!

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: Friday the 13th (1980)

FridayThe13thPoster

Our one and only Twitter horror reviewer Tim Schilling is finally back and this time he is taking on the Friday the 13th series. Today we bring you the first three installments of the groundbreaking franchise starting with the original installment below. Tim has never been much of a Jason fan. Let’s see if that’s changed….

Thoughts before the film:
Starting the whole thing off with the one and only, the original #FridayThe13th

Thoughts while watching:
0:03 Sex in the first 5 minutes of a horror film is always a sign of trouble.
0:05 Rockin’ music. I forgot the title sequence was awesome but simple.
0:11 Ghosts, ha, yeah that’s what’s there.
0:16 Jean short shorts on guys can stay in the 80’s.
0:21 The scene when she jumps out of the car ALWAYS made me cover my eyes when I was younger.
0:23 If you were a flavored of ice cream what would you be?
0:27 Lets destroy the entire room to kill a poor little snake.
0:31 Ralph you’re a creepo.
0:39 Monopoly is my favorite game! I dare someone to try to beat me.
0:44 Can’t you guys hear someone screaming ch ch ch op op op!? They do it every time they are close!
0:56 Crazy people going outside in the rain. Dontcha know you’re gonna die?
1:03 This movie is a period piece.
1:08 What I like about this movie (compared to Halloween and ANOES) you don’t know who the killer is until the end.
1:08 And then they just change who the killer is for the second one.
1:14 Mrs. Voorhees is possibly the only good thing about this movie.
1:17 His name was Jason. He wasn’t a very good swimmer.
1:25 Scenes draaaaag on forever in this. If they were cut to show only what was needed, the movie would be an hour long.
1:30 But wait the last scene with Alice in the boat is one of the greatest things ever.

Overall: I’ll give credit to #FridayThe13th for the awesome idea of a serial killer in a summer camp, but other than that, it’s kinda boring. I didn’t care for any of the characters and there were tons of pointless scenes in it. You may now throw your tomatoes.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3” (1990)

It’s been awhile but our Twitter reviewer Tim Schilling is back with a brand new tweet by tweet review on “Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3.” The film was a box office bomb when released grossing less than $10 million in theaters and receiving harsh criticism among both fans and critics of the series. Out on DVD in an unrated cut, does the film deserve the scorn it received or does the added carnage make the film worth the buzz?

Thoughts before the film:
I get to choose to watch the rated version or the unrated version. I wonder what I’ll pick. #TexasChainsawMassacre3

Thoughts while watching:
0:02 Oh hey Ken Foree. I didn’t know you were in this.
0:15 …when is something gonna happen.
0:18 There’s at least one Psycho reference in every slasher film.
0:22 This chase scene makes no sense.It was day when they left,guy in the truck left at night, now they’re together.
0:26 Leatherface what did I tell you about coming out of no where and making me jump like that!
0:27 How did this woman get her license!? She hits everything on the road!
0:31 Ken Foree doesn’t age.
0:38 Leatherface is like a ninja in this one with all his little gadgets and how he keeps appearing out of nowhere.
0:45 The Texas in this series is completely different in each movie. Very few things are simar about the setting.
0:50 Grandpa looks dead again. I bet he’s gonna walk around later as usual like nothing happened.
1:01 I just want Leatherface to be as mean as he was in the first one.
1:06 No Leatherface, ‘food’ is not the correct way to spell Santa. Try again.
1:12 These fight scenes have great music.
1:15 Chainsaws don’t float around in water!

Final Verdict:
I’m not sure why I love The Texas Chainsaw series as much as I do, and Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III just proves it again. Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III was a good spin on the simple story that the first made, I loved the sets, and all the characters were different from each other and the characters from the other movies which made it even more entertaining.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” (2003)

Today we bring you a brand new slasher review from our one and only twitter reviewer Tim Schilling. In the first review we bring you today, Tim will be looking at “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” remake. The film received mixed reviews but was a huge commercial success making over $80 million on a $10 million budget. Let’s see nine years later how well this remake holds up to the original classic.

Thoughts before the film:
The original #TexasChainsawMassacre is one of my favorite horror movies. I love the whole series too(3 is the only one I haven’t seen yet).

Thoughts while watching:
0:02 I liked the way they introduced the movie. Very different.
0:07 I want this guy’s van. They’re too freaking cool.
0:16 This old lady ain’t calling the cops.
0:22 That possum had to of been mutant or something.
0:26 This house was definitely a slave house in the past, no question.
0:31 I want pet pigs in my house! Wait I lied.
0:32 No other movie in this series could ever top seeing Leatherface for the first time like they did in the original
0:41 Oh no… Teeth. If I have nightmares about my teeth remember, I will sue.
0:45 Leatherface doesn’t give a crap about the house in every movie. It just gets destroyed all the time.
0:46 The car doesn’t start. Typical.
0:54 There weren’t any bullets in the gun, typical!
1:00 Holy crap, Leatherface is really creepy in this one when he changed faces.
1:01 At least he’s not a screeching transvestite anymore.
1:20 Going to a meat factory in a horror movie is just asking to die.
1:25 Leatherface gets messed up in this movie.
1:28 What’s with people not being able to explain what happened to them? A guy chased me with a chainsaw. Easy.

Final Verdict:
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (remake) wasn’t that bad I don’t think. By the end it got repetitive, but I thought it was a different but good take on the simple story of the original.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “House of 1000 Corpses” (2003)

Rob Zombie has always been one of my favorite “new” filmmakers (especially considering that he has only made four films). “The Devil’s Rejects” and his “Halloween” remakes rank as a few of the horror high points of the last decade. Still, I’ve never been able to warm up to the grisly “House of 1000 Corpses.” Possibly I need to give it a new watch from a fresh perspective. Today, our twitter reviewer Tim Schilling is taking another look at the film that started Zombie’s filmmaking career.

Thoughts before the film:
This will be my second viewing of #HouseOf1000Corpses. I haven’t seen it in a few years, but I think it’ll hold up.

Thoughts while watching:
0:01 It just tastes so damn good! Bawkabawkabaaaawk!
0:06 I actually really like the song House of 1000 Corpses. I had it on repeat after I first saw the movie.
0:09 Sid Haig is really freaking scary in this movie. Even though he was ‘just kidding.’
0:15 Where can I take this tour!?i If only it was real.
0:25 Zombie’s movies are shot different than a lot of movies. But also shot great. I wanna know where he got that from.
0:40 3/4 of Zombie’s movies take place on Halloween.
0:44 These cutaway scenes they’re doing when they show the other characters in that grainy like film is great.
0:51 Those people were like waiting under the blankets for that girl… are they gonna eat her!?
0:52 Geez he just answered the question wrong, you don’t gotta chop his head off for it!
0:58 No one in this family brushes their teeth. Grossssss.
1:00 The scene when they’re killing the cops. Pretty freaking great.
1:03 That is one creepy sex shop.
1:03 Bill Moseley is kinda similar to his character in TCM2 but not as crazy. He was just nuts in that one.
1:06 The music when they’re walking to see dr. Satan is so creepy and good!
1:10 This movie in general reminds me of TCM a lot actually.

Final Verdict:
I think #HouseOf1000Corpses is a modern horror classic. It pays homage to tons of older movies while still being very different. It was also shot GREAT, and had good music. I still wish Zombie would do more features more often.

Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “Rob Zombie’s Halloween” (2007)

I’ve often felt that Rob Zombie’s remake of “Halloween” is the cream of the crop when it comes to horror remakes. He was both faithful to the original while giving the material his own innovative twist. Today we have our Twitter reviewer Tim Schilling with his take on the misunderstood remake. Will he be a fan of this remake or feel as though this is one film that should have been left alone?

Thoughts before the film:
Giving this movie a second chance. The first time I saw it I hardly payed attention. #Halloween

Thoughts while watching:

0:02 Wait that’s a lie. I saw this again recently. The beginning makes me so sad.
0:05 This is the last movie I would think the kid from Spy Kids would be in.
0:07 One thing I LOVE about Zombie’s version is that he shows Michael as a kid, and why he turns into a killer.
0:12 For only making like 4 movies, Zombie sure is pretty stylish.
0:19 Good, kinda glad you’re dead Robbie.
0:27 Hi, I’m Michael Myers!
0:29 I totally forgot the uncle from Spy Kids was in this movie!
0:30 Black is a color. Shut up dr. Loomis.
0:42 Dr. Loomis is a drama queen.
0:49 Not sure how I feel about Michael killing the Spy Kids guy, if he didn’t it would show he still had a nice side.
0:49 But since he did it shows he’s a crazy lunatic who kills people who even helped him.
0:53 Obligatory black guy death.
1:07 Sid Haig runs a graveyard in this too? What if this is in the same world as NOTLD 3D? HAH.
1:08 I wanna party in a haunted house.
1:17 Zombie’s Halloween mask > Carpenter’s Halloween mask.
1:27 Danielle Harris is pretty damn hot.
1:46 Gah I hate the eye gouge thing. It’s painful to even watch.

Final Verdict:
Complain all you want about remakes, but Zombie makes a great looking movie no matter what. Besides the movie looking awesome, you can’t really compare it to the original. The movies are completely different and each does their own thing that makes BOTH of the #Halloween movies good. I think Zombie’s will be remembered as much as the original eventually.
