LATE NIGHT HORROR DOUBLE FEATURE
Just in time for Halloween, I have a double feature for you! This week I watched See No Evil 2 and Wrong Turn 6 both released October 21st to DVD and VOD.
I have been looking forward to See No Evil 2 since I first heard about it and not because I loved the first film. I am a big fan of the Soska Twins who directed and Danielle Harris who played Amy, one of main characters. This film picks up literally right where the previous film left off. Jacob Goodnight, a deranged madman has killed everyone at a hotel and it appears he has also been killed. He is brought to the local morgue. Amy, who works at the morgue has decided to stay late and forgo her birthday plans to help her co-workers deal with the bodies of Jacob and his victims. Amy’s friends decide to bring the party to her at the morgue and this is where things go down hill. Unfortunately, Jacob is not dead after all and boy is he pissed! Maybe it was Katharine Isabelle banging her boyfriend right next to his corpse!
I will stop here because even though we all know where things are going, I don’t do spoilers. (ED Note: Here’s a spoiler, folks — don’t expect to see Katherine Isabelle’s tits. She don’t show. If you think she did, it’s a body double) To begin with this film is a huge improvement on the original. The production values, plot and actors are all improved upon. Jen and Sylvia Soska are also an improvement as the directors. These ladies are quite talented and having enjoyed their last film, American Mary, I was certain I would enjoy this one. I was not disappointed. Glenn Jacobs was a formidable opponent for these kids. Maybe even too much so. Every time he killed someone, he spent several minutes tossing them around like rag dolls first. They didn’t stand a chance! The actual kills were brutal, gory and creative in some cases. The film was successful in creating a creepy atmosphere. I also really enjoyed the look of the movie which was at once dark and beautiful.
If you are looking for a creepy, fun little slasher just in time for Halloween, you may want to check this out. I hate to disappoint the perverts out there but there are no bare boobies or vaginas in this film. (ED Note: Told ya)
LITTLE MISS HORROR NERD’S RATING: 4 out of 5
Next up: Wrong Turn 6.
I’ll admit while the original film in this franchise starring Eliza Dushku scared the living hell out of me, the rest of the movies in the franchise have been quite disappointing. This film was no exception. I was hopeful because it sounded as though there may be a fresh plot. In Wrong Turn 6: The Last Resort the story of the cannibal’s origins would be told. And tell it they did, despite the fact that it was totally ludicrous.
A group of kids accompany their friend Danny, an orphan, to a hotel he just inherited from blood family members he did not know he had. Unbeknownst to any of the kids, these people who call themselves family have anything but good intentions toward them all. Danny’s family members, a brother and sister, have plans for him and he will participate whether he likes it or not. The cannibals will kill his friends while he is busy.
Sadly, this movie is just an absolute mess. The back story and it’s new characters are just bizarre. Sally, a Farrah Fawcett lookalike, seemed to be obsessed with fucking any man she scan. If she could not fuck them, she was watching them fuck or smothering them to death with her vagina. Don’t ask! The cannibals were all about murdering, which at least gave us some crazy kills. Fire hose up the ass til your belly explodes anyone? Um thanks but no thanks. How about being ripped apart alive and eaten just after you finish having sex? Sex is getting VERY dangerous. Aside from murders, female masturbation, and four sets of bare boobs we get a piece of garbage for a plot. If you are into the former by all means rent it. It is definitely not boring.
LITTLE MISS HORROR NERD’S RATING: 2 1/2 out of 5
And that’s just for the kills.
If I have enticed you in any way into wanting watching these movies you may want to try a Roku Channel called M-GO. If you have never rented from them before you get your first rental for one dollar.
