Horrible Horror Movie Wednesday: Leprechaun in Space!

Hello everyone and welcome to the very first post of our brand new segment “Horrible Horror Movie Wednesday!”

I love scary movies and I love every sub-genre of horror. Everything from supernatural to thriller to slasher is my cup of tea. There is a specific sub-genre that has a special place in my heart though and that is, well, the not so great horror movies. We’ve all seen them. You know, the acting may not be the best, or you can see the tag hanging out of the mask for the “scary monster” as he’s attacking some half naked woman. Or maybe it takes place in space. You have to love a horror movie sequel that takes place in space.

Anyway, my point is that I love these movies because so much sincerity and effort goes into them and there is a lot more honesty with them than a lot of high production highfalutin POS’s out there. They’re fun, pure and simple, and I respect and appreciate that.

For the record this segment is called “Horrible Horror Movies” NOT because the movies are necessarily horrible, it’s just that the title has damn good alliteration. Let’s face it, that rolls off the tongue a lot more than “Horror films that aren’t quite good, but they’re made with honesty and are a lot of fun and I am writing this respectfully.” Am I right or am I right?

So, without any more interruption, I present to you our very first Horrible Horror movie: Leprechaun 4: In Space.

Awesome (Awful) Sequels I’m Looking Forward To

Or re-hashing of movies from 20 years ago that Hollywood thinks they can make new cash with. Whatever you want to call it, it’s happening right now. The sad truth is that I am one of the enablers and that I am truly excited for these movies. I might be failing my peers in the creative community as a whole.

Independence Day 2

Independence Day is one of my favorite movies. I will fight with anyone’s beloved grandmother to the end that it is one of the most re-watchable films from the 90s. Next year in 2016, the movie will be 20 years old and I have a feeling this sequel is aiming to release in conjunction with that anniversary.
