September is Silent Film Month!

1

Devils & Ghouls,

I thank you before hand for your time. I have decided to go through with my plans I have mentioned earlier in a previous blog of going through specialty months. September is when my birthday is and it’s when the first signs of autumn become aware to the human eye. My biggest inspiration for all my creativity is the Silent Era. Now in silent film month, I won’t just review horror films but I will review the actors/actresses/directors…. jumbling it up a bit.

My passion for music comes from a mixture of 4 things: Type O Negative, Ronnie James Dio, Vintage Looney Tunes, and Silent Films! I will start up on Friday with this month of Silent Era!

 

Horrific Wishes.

5 Things Missing in Movies

0

Dear Creeps,

I think it’s been awhile since I did any sort of thing like this. So here we go. Today we’re going to talk about what I think is missing in films. Ready? Here we go:

 

  1. Story line:  A good and well thought out story line is needed in anything. It’s pretty much missing from every genre of film except documentary. All you really see now is boobs and how people party to hard. Where are all the good story lines?
  2. Emotion: Emotion is a big one and ties into story line. When the emotion isn’t there, how can the audience get entranced? How can we feel the chills? Or question? Or wonder?
  3. Psychological Touch: This is more towards the horror/mystery genre. We are definitely missing the psychological touch. At the end of said films, I want to actually feel scared. I want to question if it’s reality or fantasy. I want a total mind fuck to be honest!
  4. Scenery: Everything is all computers and HD. The HD ruins the mood for horror films a lot, because there’s no longer rough quality to distort the scenery behind it. Also, with all the special effects, it doesn’t feel like a movie at all, but a video game. Instead of always using Blue for horror, Yellow/orange for adventure, why not use scenery and actually bring the people into the film?
  5. Actors & Actresses: Let’s face it, with the whole over doing special effects thing, people don’t really need to even act anymore. They don’t need to try to tell a story – because it’s not there. They don’t need to show emotion – because it’s not there. All the “movies” really are now are a bunch of pixel effects that look like shit. What happened to actors and actresses? Stunt men?! Where did it all go?!

I hope you enjoyed this list. More to come in a future Unsuccessful Entertainment video.
