Title: The Ring (2002)

"Before you die, you see The Ring"

Samara the psychopathic girl from the Ring

Are you sure, you are ready to see my face? My hair is so voluminous, Rapunzel has nothing on me!!!

 

Actors: Daveigh Chase, Naomi Watts, Martin Henderson, Brian Cox

The Ring Movie poster 

Background: When "The Ring" came out fortunately for me, I went visiting my family back home and what a great way to spend family time than to go watch a Japanese remake in theaters. OMG was I in for a ride? The Ring is full of tongue in cheek humor while Samara exceedingly petrifies the innocent little boy/girl out of young, old and otherwise.  For a remake which spawned its own line of successful remakes, The Ring showcased some ..................

Title: From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)

"One night is all that stands between them and their freedom but it's going to be one hell of a night"

Santanico

Yes I am hot and I suck blood for breakfast, lunch and dinner!!!

 

Actors: George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino, Keitel Harvey, Juliette Lewis, Salma Hayek 

 

Background: From Dusk Till Dawn is one of the most genre bending action vampire movies ever made. Filled with some of the greatest actors to date-- We are quickly introduced to the infamous escaped convicted felons, the Gecko Brothers. Richie and Seth are very different in character and temperament although they share a highly criminal lifestyle. The brothers hijacked a ..................

Title: Jacob's Ladder (1990)

The most frightening thing about Jacob Singer's nightmares is that he isn't dreaming

Actors: Tim Robbins, Elizabeth Pena 

Jacob Singer 

Background: One of the very first Tim Robbins' movie that I have watched and I became a fan eversince. Tim portrayed Jacob Singer so convincingly that you would never realize what the film was truly about until the ending.  The following citation by Meister Eckart sums up most of the premise: "The only thing that burns in Hell is the part of you that won't let go of life, your memories, your attachments. They burn them all away. But they're not punishing you", he said. "They're freeing your soul. So, if you&#...............

Title: Audition (1999)

You can't go anywhere without feet can you?

Actors: Ryo Ishibashi, Eihi Shiina, Tetsu Sawaki

Audition poster 

Background: Audition was that late 1999 horror thriller that most friends were either warning others not to go see with a full stomach or plainly to avoid altogether if they were on the easily traumatized side after watching a truly visceral flick. Audition was nothing short of visually unimaginable grotesque sadomasochistic dismemberments of lovers who could not simply love 'only' Asami for the rest of their wretched lives. As that's exactly what this psychopath will go on reminding them before she shows them to their new 'dwelling' made out of burlap; not without, of ...............

Title: The Hatchet (2006)

Prepare to get annihilated

Actors: Joel Moore, Tamara Feldman, Deon Richmond

 Hatchet - Adam Green

Background: From the demented mind of Adam Green, Victor Crowley, the villain you wanted to cheer for but feared was born in all of its Hatchet Face glory. I enjoyed Hatchet so much that I watched the premise at least five times already. I love how each character was so richly conceived. It was raunchy laughter in each scene deprived of Hatchet Face and each scene that starred the irreverent deformed serial killer was dreadfully blood-curdling. If you have not yet seen Hatchet, you need to click on this mini poster below and join the Hatchet Army.

 

Unfair kills: There were many creative kills, ...............

Title: The World's End (2013)

Prepare to get annihilated

Actors: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan

 The Good Companions

Background: Gary King is your all British drunken, bummy, rubbish guy cemented in his teenage years as they were the most fulfilling ones of his life. Let's just say, Gary King has ceased to grow as a human being since his last pub hopping while commandeering his four best friends - Peter, Oliver, Andy and Steven. Now several years later, Gary guilts his now estranged successful friends into coming back to their hometown, New Haven, to complete this ceremonial "Golden Mile" which has for object that they each finish a draft in these twelve contentiously named ...............

Title: This is the End (2013)

Nothing ruins a party like the end of the world

Actors: James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride, Channing Tatum

 TITE party

Scene: James Franco is throwing this lavish party at his spectacular home. Anyone who is anyone is at that party. Little did he know, that he was throwing an end of the world party as there would be none like it since their world was suddenly the perfect depiction of several chapters from Revelations. People were being lifted off to the sky through white beams while others were perilously falling into a ginormous fiery hole cracked open right in front of James Franco's house. The "survivors" well, were very few.&...............

Title: Shaun of the Dead (2004)

Ever felt like you were surrounded by Zombies?

Actors: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost  

Shaun of the Dead before zombies

Scene: Shaun and Ed are charming invalids who become the unlikely heroes as their beloved Bristish town falls prey of a zombie outbreak. They devised a great plan for their survival but too many Chiefs and not enough Indians caused it to fall short as Ed inevitably gets bitten by Pete. We could not possibly imagine to have a moment of sadness from this exceedingly permissible laughing out loud trope as we all assumed it was the end of our hateship loveship affair with Ed. 

Why: The zombie apocalypse has subsided and deemed under control-- the remaining undamaged population went on with...............

Title: The Shining (1980)

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy

Actors: Jack Nicholson, Lia Beldam (young woman), Billie Gibson (old woman) 

old lady from the shining

Scene: Jack Torrance goes to room 237 to investigate this mysterious woman Wendy accused of physically assaulting their son, Danny. Instead of getting upset at this lady upon finding her in a bath, he is rather smitten with her. As a result, we are taken aback and deem Jack Torrance a very unfit husband, and an extremely bad parent in one take. Nonetheless, it's the reflection that Jack sees in the mirror that beckons the ultimate WTF moment.

Why: One of the most WTF scenes ever on all accounts!

Title: Creepshow (1982)

Jordy suffered from the perpetual Verrill luck and inevitably transformed into a distressed man-weed plant.

Actor: Stephen King

Scene: Jordy Verrill's unsettling demise-- after one bare touch of that 'meteor shit', Jordy Verrill's luck took a supreme downfall. His fingers, his tongue, his body and all gradually grew into weeds after direct exposure to fluids until Jordy became a full-blown plant, that could still mutter its last words; as he blows his plant-like head off from acute anguish.  

 Keep drinking...your 'luck' might just reverse lunkhead!

Why: As most Stephen King fans would agree, Creepshow is one of the very first anthologies ............
