Here are some Horror movies on Netflix I recently watched:
Tucker and Dale vs. Evil – It’s a Horror/Comedy. Maybe more on the comedy side. The cast is superb. The plot is fairly simple with a lot of misunderstood situations that take place between Dale and Tucker and their fix-ur-upper vacation home, and some overly critical, unstable college kids. Very original script, good acting (Tucker and Dale are fantastic), and clever direction. I’d give this 4 stars.
Oculus – This had a creative and elaborate story with excellent performances from all it’s cast. The movie starts off slow and methodical and really hits its stride about the half way mark. Oculus combines the supernatural theme with realistic events that keep you on your toes and are definitely able to give you a proper scare. I’d also give this 4 stars.
Carrie (2013 Version) – I remember the 1956 version of the bullying film pretty well, and didn’t see a big “reimagining”. I felt it was almost the exact same movie. It’s not a terrible film, but will make you feel that the remake was completely unnecessary, and adds absolutely nothing. I’d give this 2.5 stars.
Coming October 7th is the 13-episode fifth installment of the Emmy and Golden Globe winning franchise, American Horror Story!
American Horror Story: Hotel features an all-star cast of Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Chloë Sevigny, Denis O’Hare, Cheyenne Jackson, Evan Peters and Finn Wittrock.
I just got around to watching the walking dead spin-off “Fear the Walking Dead”. I wouldn’t be able to site through this 90 minute pilot it without a fast-forward button. The first 10 minutes is good and the last 20 minutes is good. The 60 minutes between is the most boring nonsense that tries to build characters, but is unbearable. I’ll keep trying to watch other episodes in case it gets better. With my finger on the fast-forward button.
