Andrew van den Houten - Offspring (2009)
Based on the Jack Ketchum novel and coming as an extra in The Woman Arrow Video limited edition, this is a very clearly low budget movie. So low budget that it does at times feel like it was made for 5 bucks, with that early digital cinematography which didn't really age well and some pretty random camera movements of what is clearly an amateurish director.
With all its faults it kind of makes up for it with sheer shock value and some pretty good acting with a couple of exceptions, which makes the film pretty watchable, particularly seeing as it is only 79 minutes long, a good old B-movie size.
The story follows a group of people being attacked by a strange tribe of cannibals which have developed independently in some island off the shore. This is the kind of film that could have been made in Italy in the 70s-80s with much better production values, and I kind of wish it was. As it is, it's ok on balance, but pretty amateurish. (3/5) #horror#movie#film#cinephile#horrormovie#andrewvandenhouten#filmposter#movieposter#poster#horrorfan#horrornerd#horrorgram#horrorgeek#horrorclub#horrorfans#offspring
Poltergeist is a 1982 American supernatural horror film directed by Tobe Hooper and written by producer Steven Spielberg, Michael Grais and Mark Victor from a screen story by Spielberg. It stars JoBeth Williams, Craig T. Nelson, Heather O'Rourke, and Beatrice Straight and is produced by Spielberg alongside Frank Marshall. Set in a California suburb, the plot focuses on a family whose home is invaded by malevolent ghosts that abduct their younger daughter, and the family's attempts to bring her back into the real world.
A clause in Spielberg's contract prevented him from directing another film while he made E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. Therefore, Hooper was selected to direct based upon his work on The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and The Funhouse. The film was first conceived as a dark horror sequel to Close Encounters of the Third Kind entitled Night Skies. When Spielberg approached Hooper to direct, Hooper was less keen on the sci-fi elements and suggested the idea of a ghost story. Spielberg and Hooper would then go on to collaborate on the first treatment for the film.
Released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer on June 4, 1982, the film was a major critical and commercial success, becoming the eighth-highest-grossing film of 1982. Years since its release, the film has been recognized as a classic within the horror genre and has gained a cult following. Aside from being nominated for three Academy Awards, Poltergeist was named by the Chicago Film Critics Association as the 20th-scariest film ever made, and the scene of the clown doll attack was ranked as #80 on Bravo's 100 Scariest Movie Moments. The film also appeared at #84 on American Film Institute's 100 Years...100 Thrills, a list of America's most heart-pounding movies.

This 2010 American horror film begins with a flashback of a disfigured teen girl entering a restaurant, naturally drawing attention from everyone there and it upsets flyer and leads to an outburst. Slight warning. Teens do kill thrnselves in this movie so if thats upsetting to you then its best if you not watch this 🤚👍 Cut to the incident. With high school movies like this, there is always the jocks: Bradley and Bernard, the popular mean girls: Bridget, Heather, and Kelli, and the outcasts: Dane, Emily, Jack, Andy, and Ravi. The outcasts plan to torture their bullies because they're tired of being treated like dirt. The all sucees and have the teens chained together in a house. Bernard is tortured by Emily with needles. Emily also tortures Bridget with a substance that burns her face. Bridget loses two of her fingers after refusing to cut off Bradley's fingers. The torture goes on for a while until Dane starts taking it too far. Kurtis, the neutral of the group was in the wrong place at the wrong time but he manages to escape and ask for help. With the night coming to an end, Jack shoots Emily then turns the gun on himself before stating "There are more of us out there". I can't say there is a happy ending because while things may go back to normal, the memories and scars still remain. This is loosely based on actual events because cases like this are happening. People are bullied every single day and remain silent until something happens to the school bully by his or her tormentor. It's not a super gory or bloody movie but I really enjoyed it. #thefinal2010#marcdonato#jaschawashington#whitneyhoy#julin#ericisenhower#lindsayseidel#highschoolbully#horrormovie#joeystewart#afterdarkfilms#dramahorrorthriller#8filmstodiefor
Well..this definitely fits into the category “redneck horror” which I never knew existed. The acting was HORRENDOUS throughout the film and I was honestly desperate for the movie to just END so I don’t have to sit through anymore of it. I mean sure, the giant mosquitoes were cool. The ones that weren’t obviously animated into the movie. If you love badly acted giant bug movies, this one is for you. I love a giant bug movie any day, but this one wasn’t it sis.
