BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
This is like a lesser known Scary Movie, but actually, it has some charm to it, and I enjoyed it. 'It's Halloween night, and slacker video clerk Stan Helsing along with his insanely sexy ex-girlfriend , best buddy and an exotic dancer/'massage therapist' - detours into a town cursed by the biggest monsters in movie history: Freddy, Jason , Pinhead , Leatherface , Chucky , & Michael Myers.'
This was one of those 'late night' films when I am on my own and tend to turn my brain off, and it worked as one in some ways. I didn't have to concentrate on the film, it's a simple story, nothing difficult to keep up with, and it does have some nice moments. Some little nods here and there to the horro genre, which, to a horror buff, really warms my heart.
It worked in someways as a late night movie, because I didn't have to concentrate on it, but, it didn't work as one because I didn't get to bed until late watching it. I got super into it. It's a bad film, like you would expect, like Scary Movie is, but it's charming and nice. Like Scary Movie is.
Stan Helsing does have a fair few similarities to Scary Movie - don't get me wrong, I like both, both are a breath of fresh air from lifes seriousness, but neither will ever win any awards. Doesn't make either a bad film though. Unless you ask my dad, he caught some of Stan Helsing, laughed and said it was a terrible movie - the key part here though, he laughed. It might have been Leslie Nielson in a dress, but still, he laughed.
Stan Helsing is a lovely nod to horror films, classic ones at that, being that all the villians are classic horror movie villians, just more camped up. And by camped up, they do do a sing off against Stan where YMCA is the chosen song for them...
If this doesn't make you want to watch this, I have no idea what will. It's charming, it has good characters, it's harmless and it's just fun to watch. And Stan is hot and Kenan from Kenan and Kel is in it... just as added extras.
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
