Watching Godawful Horror Flicks: I’m Making A List and Checking It Twice!

studyingI’m making a Grammar Checklist for myself as I go through certain chapters of NR. Got a small notebook here for myself. As I’m reading, I’ll jot down what’s missing and what sentences seem unclear. This way I can keep a track of what I’ve found. Putting down the page number and paragraph helps me to find it later on. I’ll place the word that’s missing or what needs fixing. Even write down a few notes.

It’s nothing much…

The same channel I was watching the other day that had really bad vampire shows… now has nothing but godawful horror flicks. And these seem pretty recent too. I think they’re all sequels to some popular original movie, because I keep seeing movie 4 or movie 6. Is this what passes off as horror and suspense nowadays? I saw one of the films (#4 – big mistake!) and then I had to turn it off. It was that bad. So very stupid.

Yes, it’s gory and somewhat bloody pointless… but it’s things we’ve seen before. Something about a bunch of college kids, who look like they’re in their 30s or 40s, who are lost in a snow storm and seek shelter at an asylum. Was the director even trying here? None of it made any sense whatsoever.

Not only was I not even scared, this movie felt more like a comedy. A really cheesy one. Who gives these people money? ‘Cause I’d like to know. If I had that kind of money to direct a movie, I’d probably hire some better actors first. Ones that don’t look like porn stars. Then, have someone help me write a well thought out script –– you know, one that actually has a story (a beginning, middle, and end) and makes a lick of sense.

It’s kind of sad seeing a film, where no one is even trying to do something right, especially acting. Put some effort into it. Could they not find and hire someone talented enough, who might’ve actually cared about the job? Even the editing in this film was horrendous. Did no one say, during production… “Maybe we shouldn’t be making this film at all? This movie really sucks, guys…”

In fact, I just didn’t care for any of the characters and wished for all of them to be dead. Is that bad? I must be heartless, ’cause the only good scene was the end. Those rolling credits must’ve cost them a fortune to make! All these films suffer from the same thing: they have horrible acting, bad storylines, terrible special effects, and are filled to the brim with cliches.

LIST OF REALLY BAD & GODAWFUL HORROR CLICHES:

  • Hot chicks with big breasts. CHECK!
  • Death to those who have sex. CHECK!
  • All cops are unprepared and brainless. CHECK!
  • Protagonist thinks they got away, but didn’t. CHECK!
  • Inbred monsters, who are ugly beyond all reason. CHECK!

I’m pretty disappointed. I’ve seen Indie horror films that are better than this dreck. Oh well… C’est la vie! That’s life!

Back to my favorite and beloved show of all time!
