BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
Oh, Peelers, what ever can I say about you... You started off pretty well, well as in different compared to most other stripper zombies films, but alas, it was not meant to be. "A small-town strip club owner defends her bar and her girls when they're beset by the undead."
I really do like zombie films, even bad ones, even corny ones, I'll watch them all, and Peelers goes down the route of a corny bad one. It starts off well, I was into it right at the start - why so much, I have no idea. I just was enjoying it from the start, straight away it didn't take itself too serious, and it knew it wasn't going to be a masterpiece.
And it definitely was not a masterpiece, but that is no bad thing at all! Peelers is a very fun film to watch.
I have to say, I was really into it at the start, and even though I really liked the gore and the actual effects, I lost the story half way through it, and just could not get it back. I wouldn't say I got bored, as I don't really think I do get bored, but I just couldn't keep interested in it. I found myself checking my phone and only really paying attention when it got gory or there was some type of action. I didn't hate it, but I preferred the gore to anything else.
Overall, Peelers is a fun film, and has some great over the top gore, but I just, for whatever reason, could not get into it - I didn't it, but Shaun of the Dead is still my favourite zombie film, just saying...
Damn, shit hit the fan when this film was made! The Perfection only came out last Friday, yet, the chat about it is incredibly, and, I have already seen it! That's how good a film this is, and how intrigued I was with it. It took me about two or three days before I just had to sit down and watch it, and god damn, I am glad I did! "A troubled musical prodigy and a new star pupil embark down a sinister path."
Now, this is going to be a tough review to do... It might also be pretty short... The Perfection is a near perfect movie for me, honestly. Only reason I say it's not perfect is that nothing is perfect, (apart from my cat...), and I wanted more - but I feel that shows just how good a film it was. It is a near perfect movie, but it is also a movie to go in blind to, without knowing anything.
I highly recommend not watching the trailer or reading up on it or anything like that, as this movie will throw everything up in the air and just twist and turn it all.
I really hope no one who watches this gets motion sickness, as the twist will make you dizzy. You think this film is going one way and it goes another, and not even the other you were expecting. Another completely different way you had never even considered - see why I love it so much?!
And it's gross, which you may have already heard about, it's true, parts in it are gross and heck, but it all just ties up so damn nicely. I watched a review on this after watching it, as it was one of those films I just wanted more of, and they highly recommended not to eat during this. Looking into this, I saw that same warning a few times... But being me, I had my massive bulking lunch and was fine. It's gross and is very much some type of body horror, but if you have a fairly strong stomach, you'll be fine. A weak stomach? You might not want to eat while watching it...
Now, I know what you might be thinking, "Meg, you haven't actually mentioned much about the film yet!", well, good reader, there is a reason for that. As mentioned before, The Perfection is a film that needs to be seen blind, and there are so many twists and turns and spoilers to do with this film that mentioning anything, could ruin the viewing for anyone who has not seen it.
Due to this, I shall be not going into detail about the actual film and just summing it up in a few sentences.
1. You need to watch this film, but without looking into it with trailers and such.
2. It's so damn twisty and turny and that's so nice to see.
3. It's gross - my favourite.
4. It does for gay relationships what any film should do, and is just relationship goals throughout...well, mostly throughout.
And 5. GO AND WATCH THIS FILM. I adored it and I want to watch it again, but I only watched it Friday and it's only Wednesday...
This film was pretty much nothing like I was expecting, but not in a good way... "After moving to a new town, a young college student retreats to the country for a weekend of solace when she quickly finds out that she is not alone and needs to fight for her life."
I expected more than I got with this film, mainly from the good looking, professional poster and also the story behind it. Yes, the story is nothing new, but it's one of those easy to follow, entertaining stories - or so I thought.
The film opens with a pretty good sign of two girls playing with ouiji board, which is always a good idea, only for it to go tits up. It's a pretty good opening and is actually pretty well done - which is something I cannot say with the rest of the film.
This was just a bad film, the acting I think was the worst part of it, as it did just seem to get more and more wooden as it went on. The filming and editing was better, but not enough to salvage the film or make it enjoyable. The best thing about it was the storyline, as I feel it did have a calling, but it just wasn't done as well as it could have been.
The effects weren't too shabby either, with the deaths falling under that, and as I said, it had a good, creepy opening scene.
Overall, I feel Hell of a Night had a good heart, but just didn't reach what it was trying to get to. I won't be watching it again, but doesn't mean you shouldn't!
Don't worry, I had never heard of it either, but, don't let that stop you watching a film. If I had I wouldn't have stumbled upon this little bizarre gem... "A man and his sister endure a night of increasingly frightening practical jokes during a stay at a secluded motel."
I'm Just F*cking With You, (and I am spelling it that way as it is spelt that way all over the internet.), is one of those films that you start, and it goes the way that you have no idea what is going on. It opens with a lot of loud music, and bright colours, kind of like a less scary tunnel out of Willy Wonka, and just heads into this story about a guy who seems to get pleasure over trolling people online. Like he really loves it. One of those people who would never say anything to your face in person, but under a different name online, basically, he's a contestant off Jeremy Kyle. Typing abuse to anyone who he can. He's not the most likeable character, is poor Larry, let's say that.
Chester though, now he is a character, again, not much of a likeable one. Really, he's probably just as unlikeable as Larry. Chester comes across to start with as harmless, but so annoying. He basically made a lot of jokes, each getting more and more intense as the films goes on, but each of them ending with Chester saying the title of the film. See, that gets old quickly. But his pranks and jokes get worse and worse, and honestly, it's intense but in a very weird way. You have no idea where this film is going, all you know is Chester is a little bit cray cray and you have no idea what he is going to do next - I liked it!
This was a bizarre little film, that you had no idea where it was heading, kind of driving without a Sat Nav... One things I had a little bit of a problem with though, parts of the story seemed to be mentioned, like friends arriving at the motel, and the big car crash, but then never again. You never really learnt why they didn't get there, or if they were in the crash - I think. As far as I know, it was never really cleared up.
Overall, I was into this. I had never heard of it before, but it spoke to me and I am glad it did. Stick with it, it's weird, but stick, it is a good one. I also really liked where the ending went - it goooot dark!
Oh, and it's a pretty movie, so much neon and so many umbrellas in glasses!
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
