Monday Update – 23/10/2017

It’s a Halloween Monday Update!

So, Bill Sage, who plays the father in We Are What We Are (Saturday’s review) read the review, and I don’t think he was too impressed. He was polite enough about it though…

Not a fan…

The review can be read here –

The vote for Friday’s review is up and you can select a film at the bottom of this post. If you’re from the UK, you can still register for the mailing list for a chance to win Hellraiser Revelations on Blu Ray (the copy used to review) by clicking on the link on the left if using a standard browser, or from the button with the three lines at the top right if using a mobile browser.

Other than this blog, and real life, I’m working on a zombie survival game. At the moment, I’ve just got the spread of zombies algoryhtm going (it may need tweaking to make the game longer or shorter, and, if you try it with the population of the world, it takes a long time to reach The End). I’ll be posting updates on it as and when there’s something to update you on.

The Corking Movies Official Zombie Survior Game (WIP)

As well as We Are What We Are, I did watch The Babysitter on Netflix last night. Found it enjoyable in a Tucker and Dale vs. Evil sense, if not groundbreaking. I’d recommend it if you have an hour and a half to spare.

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).

Monday Update 09/10/2017

The Legacy - House of Hell
Another 80s game geek reference. Lose one sanity.

The first Corking Movies Halloween special (spooktacular) was a doozy. Troll 2 has long been known as one of the worst films of all time. It was even the subject of an entertaining documentary entitled Best Worst Movie). It has attained cult status, giving rise to fan festivals, special screenings and its cast revel in their notoriety. As you can imagine, it was enjoyable to watch drunk, and the review is below.

Continuing our October Halloween theme, I’ve prepared the new poll. Billy Zane and Red Clover have been removed from the list having garnered no votes. I’m sure Billy Zane will appear here again. His is an odd tale, to me. He’s a decent actor, but whether it’s through bad decisions, bad advice or whatever, he’s been in a lot of bad films (and his name is tainted as such). So, in place of Red Clover and Troll 2, we have 13 Eerie (no score on Rotten Tomatoes) and The Day (29% on Rotten Tomatoes).

What should I watch for the next Halloween Special?

Child’s Play

As a horror fan, this is one of those films I’ve just never got round to watching. For those that don’t know, it’s about a killer doll, voiced by the fantastic Brad Dourif. It spawned many sequels.

I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House

This is a Netflix special about a writer of ghost stories who moves into a house with a ghost. I expect one of those book signing endings that all films with writers in have. And jump scares and close up over the shoulder shots (you know the one, where the viewer can see what’s behind the protagonist).

The Day

This is a post apocalyptic horror, so bad haircuts are guaranteed. It’s about a bunch of survivors holes up in a farmhouse with bad guys outside.

13 Eerie

Some FBI forensic wannabes are sent to an island for some test or another. Turns out some illegal experiments were done there. One of the cast is listed as ‘Skinhead Nazi Zombie’, so that may give you some idea.
