So here's what the Warlock's clan has been watching thus far this Halloween season....
The People Under the Stairs (1991 - Wes Craven)
Big Trouble in Little China (1986 - John Carpenter)
The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988 - Wes Craven)
The Orphanage (2007 J.A. Bayona)
Pretty Dead (2013 Benjamin Wilkins)
Quarantine (2008 - John Erick Dowdle)
Jennifer (the fuk Dex) Carpenter in another 'found footage' film. Based on the Spanish film Rec, Carpenter plays a television reporter shadowing a couple of firemen who go on a call to an apartment building. With a great build-up in characters and a unrelenting horrific thrill-ride to the climax this one is a real nail-biter of the virus / mad flesh-eating variety. I love Jennifer Carpenter. Anyone that has seen her work knows that she's a natural in front of the camera and pure emotion on film. This one has some of her best work and that's saying a lot!
The Bay (2012 - Barry Levinson)
Yet another found footage film (seeing a trend here) with a small town on the Chesapeake Bay which falls under the influence of a mysterious virus (or is it?). Well told and surprisingly creepy, horrific and gruesome. Definitely worth a watch.
More in a few...
