Monday Update

Happy Monday everyone.

This weekend, I watched not one, but two dreadful movies, to round off the Halloween Specials – firstly, Maximum Overdrive, which was so bad Stephen King condemned it himself. Secondly, Hellraiser Revelations, which was so bad Clive Barker condemned it. See, I’m not afraid to watch films condemned by those involved (well, with Hellraiser Revelations, it was very much out of Barker’s hands). The Maximum Overdrive review can be found here – Maximum Overdrive. The Hellraiser Revelations review will be up tomorrow. If you fancy winning something that brings more misery than the Lament Configuration, I’m going to be giving away the review copy to one lucky subscriber. Click here for details Hellraiser Giveaway

For a break from the awful movies I’ve been watching, I went to see Blade Runner 2049. I’m a massive fan of the original and own numerous copies, so was trepidatious about seeing it. The Matrix Trilogy demonstrate how poor sequels can destroy the original. I shouldn’t have worried. Blade Runner 2049 is superb. For sheer spectacle it is amazing. My (sober) review can be found here – Blade Runner

Near the bottom of this post is the poll for the next film to be reviewed. They are:

Children of the Corn. This is the 2009 remake of the Stephen King film about satanic children (aren’t they all?)

Truth or Dare. Some rich kids play a game of Truth or Dare that turns to the extreme.

Orc Wars. Some special forces chap fights orcs. With guns. Seems a bit one-sided to me.

My Bloody Valentine. A group of friends call forth a legendary killer. Idiots.

So, that’s the Monday update. If there’s any films you’d like me to review drunk, or have any suggestions for the site, pop a comment below. Have a wonderful Halloween.

What should be drunkenly reviewed next?

Last week’s review is available here – 13 Eerie Drunken Review

Halloween Special Drunken Review Poll #3

So, what should be watched this weekend? It’s going to be Saturday evening rather than Friday this week.

Child’s Play. I don’t think this needs any introduction, but for some reason, I’ve never seen it.

I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House. This seems to be a pretty standard haunted house story, staring Ruth Wilson, who basically owned the show Luther.

Truth or Dare. Some kids go to a cabin and play a violent game of truth or dare. It’s English, so they’ve probably all been in Game of Thrones.

We Are What We Are. The short synopsis is that there are a family of cannibals that have to kidnap victims for a ritual. It’s an American remake of a Mexican horror film.

Finally, don’t forget to sign up to the mailing list for your chance to win the copy of Hellraiser Revelations I use for the Halloween Special finale (and entry into any future draws).

Corking Movies Halloween Giveaway

At the end of the month, as the conclusion to the first ever Corking Movies celebration of Halloween, I’ll be watching Hellraiser Revelations. Apparently, it was only made so that they could keep the license (like Roger Corman’s Fantastic Four), so that’s a good sign. As it’s not a streamed film as far as I could see, I had to beg the Corking Movies accounts department (also me) to let me buy it. It’s a German copy, but you can pick English from the menu. Maybe it’ll be better in German anyway. I used to play one of the FIFA games with German commentary as the English commentary was so awful.

Trust me. Under the picture, it's NOT Doug Bradley. Who is a nice chap.
It’s not even Doug Bradley

Anyway, if it’s as bad as I expect, I don’t see why I should suffer alone. So, on November 12th, I’ll be doing a draw to give it away. I’m sure it’ll serve as a placemat or potentially deadly indoor frisbee. Should you want to be in with a chance of winning a second hand copy of Hellraiser Revelations, simply register for the Corkingmovies.com email newsletter. On mobile devices, you can get to this through the menu at the top, otherwise it’s somewhere down the left. If you don’t receive the confirmation email, check your spam. If you still can’t see it, email me at Christian at corkingmovies dot com. You must be a UK resident and over 18 to enter. On the day of the draw, a random number generator will be used to pick from those subscribers registered at that point.
