It's time once again to look at the mailbag for the latest and greatest comments from you, the fine readers. Well, not that there's a ton of readers, I'm still scraping by with minimal support. Oh and I'm still unemployed, because I'm an idiot and no one wants to hire me. So without further delay, here are the latest and greatest comments from the past 30 or so days.
M. Carter @ the Movies said in regards to my post REWIND: Ted Bundy Review:
Oooooh -- thanks for the suggestion! I am a connoisseur of true crime novels and serial killer lore, so I'm always on the lookout for movies about the likes of Bundy, Gacy, Dahmer, etc.
A few other great serial killer filims: "M," a disturbing German film based (supposedly) on Peter Kurten's murderous exploits, and "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer." The latter is quite possibly the most unnerving movie I've ever seen.
No problem. I reviewed that a while ago, and still think it's one of the more brutal horror films of our time. The sexuality and abuse in the film is worse than most of the porno I've seen, including the kink club sites. I wonder how the actresses were able to deal with the "acting" that was involved, it just seemed extreme to me. Oh well. It's true what they say, truth is sometimes stranger than fiction.
the posturing (and admittedly rather irritating) little popinjay said in regards to my Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation Review:
Easily the best film that Renee Zellweger has ever appeared in and probably will ever appear in.
Yeah, she's annoying now, but back then? I admit, I think she was really cute. She's just been annoying ever since. I wonder how she was able to "act" when she apparently looked in pain, at least when she was getting choked out. I guess I should listen to the director/cast commentary someday.
Handsome Bryan said in regards to my Dee Snider's Strangeland Review:
This movie is absolutely amazing. The lines are classically hillarious such as the monologue given at the first crime scene from the guy with the thick East Coast accent and the neck tattoo describing body modification and how "different they are" from society. Captain Howdy has some hillarious speeches involving "the ampallang" and "rites of passage that must be physical." I have watched this movie countless times much to the dismay of my girlfriend. And whenever we need something in the background my reply is always, "hey, why donh't we pop in Strangeland?!?!?!"
Dee Snider did it well, and I hear there's a sequel in the works. I personally thought this film was great, it's still good. I don't think it's the greatest, but man, for being an independent film it hits hard and is as relevant today as it was when it first came out. Thanks for he comment, man, you're one brave dude to get your girlfriend to watch this...or at least request it often. I got lucky and married the only girl I know that says "yes" to anything horror related.
kelit thornell said in regards to The Witchunt Trailer:
I know these guys and can't wait to see this movie. They are in a band called White Collar Sideshow. Thier performance on stage is mind blowing and extremely intense. So this movie has to be even more so. Check them out www.facebook.com/whitecollarsideshow and see this movie as soon as it opens.
I'm hoping T. Benson gets funding for a major release, and to finish the film. I met him and his wife at Tom Fest 2009 and thought he was a genuine guy with a good band. Hopefully they continue to do what they do, and yes, I'll be watching the film when it comes out.
Well folks, I hope you guys are ready for next month, I know it's not here yet, but I will be reviewing All Holiday Horror Movies in December this year, once again. I have even gone out of my way to purchase Holiday Horror films on vhs that are rare and out of print just to make things worth it here on this site. I would also appreciate it if you guys (the readers) would use the amazon links to do your christmas shopping, because it would help me out greatly. If not, that's cool. I'll be reviewing a special "double feature" on Wednesday so stay tuned in for that, otherwise, keep the comments coming and thank you kindly for all your support and generosity. Email me, leave a comment or catch me on aim "thecorporatehero" with anything you've got to say.
