The Conjuring (Review)

0

Hello my devils and ghouls. 

Practically everyone I know was begging me to watch The Conjuring. Telling me that it’s new and surprising and a new film I’d actually like! And then… after watching it… I had to question how well these people know me. (Kidding, you guys are great)

Storyline: In 1971, Carolyn and Roger Perron move their family into a dilapidated Rhode Island farm house and soon strange things start happening around it with escalating nightmarish terror. In desperation, Carolyn contacts the noted paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren, to examine the house. What the Warrens discover is a whole area steeped in a satanic haunting that is now targeting the Perron family wherever they go. To stop this evil, the Warrens will have to call upon all their skills and spiritual strength to defeat this spectral menace at its source that threatens to destroy everyone involved. (IDMB)

 

Okay, so sounds like a pretty decent story. According to some research is claims to be about a true story…. Hmmm… well… 

 

Firstly, I had to watch the film twice in a row because I was torn. Did I hate it? Did I like it? So I’ll list the things I did find to my liking and list the things I disliked. Here we go…

Likes:  

  • Had a pretty decent story line going.
  • Acting of the Warren’s was pretty believable.
  • Old house! (Like it should be)

Dislikes:

  • Jump scares were not scary; music gave it a  way too easily.
  • Felt like they were meshing every paranormal film from the ’70s into one movie.
  • The paranormal activity started off way too soon – to me there should have been a little bit more of findings before a whole bunch of crap went on.
  • I don’t understand why people call this film new and exciting… (see bullet 2)

My main thing is with this film is it has me torn. I didn’t like it but I didn’t hate it. It’s like one of those movies you’d put on when the people you are hanging out with don’t like horror movies. It’s not one I’d buy nor have anything to really say about. I just wish it could have been more…scary. This whole every horror movie at night has this blue tint to it thing is getting old. My house doesn’t turn blue at night. If we take a look back at the old paranormal films hell even Halloween, there houses didn’t turn BLUE! And it was freaky because it was more realistic. 

 

You guys might call me a nit-picker… and maybe sometimes I can be… but hey, we all have our own opinions. I for one think this is a film to put on just for background noise. I wouldn’t want to sit through it again. Goddamn, I need to get better at writing reviews. But I suppose this is what I get for trying to write one at 10:43AM.

Actions of Others

0

Have you ever had to suffer the consequences due to an other person’s actions? I have for a majority of my life and I’m getting tired of it. The more I show that I am not the person that did the horrid deeds the more and more I have to pay becuase I am a child of that person. You see creeps – my mother made poor decisions. And didn’t have to pay for her actions whatsoever. After she took off — I HAD to deal with what she created and still do ’til this day even though that was back in 2007! You my lovely Ghouls – For some reason my mother had to go around and ruin my reputation. Claiming I’m just as she when in reality — she doesn’t know me at all. I get the backlash from her actions when I didn’t do anything wrong. I was a kid at the time all this was happening. So how on earth could I cause anything? That’s right I couldn’t!

For so many years I had to put up with bullying, harrassment, and accusations because of the woman that gave birth to me. When will enough be enough?! When will it be her turn to pay for the actions she put forth!?! Why should I be the scapegoat to her madness? I shouldn’t! I had to deal with her drinking, her abuse, and lies for what? So she can have a cheap thrill?

Truth of the matter is – Don’t let this sort of crap get you down. Sure you may need to vent like I did above. But you’re better than the person that caused the ruckus. You’re the champion going after your dreams. You’re the individual that will have life they’ve always wanted. Because you learned how NOT to be in life. There will be days when you ask the ever so popular: “Why Me?!” Truth is, that question will never be answered. That is because there isn’t one. No one knows why you were chosen to go through situations like that. But take the negative to fuel a positive. Take that angst and gear it towards your dream career. Gear it towards productivity. I say this because no matter how much you confront the individual(s) that created a monster for you – They’ll never get it. It’s like talking to a wall. You seriously need to throw out all the fucks you give and head on through. Stand tall and proud. While those individuals will cower and crawl!

Make your mark in this life. Whether it be large or small. Because the one thing you should never have to do is be ashamed of the situations you’ve been through – and most of all you should never be ashamed of who you are!

The Girly Ghosthunters (Review – Please Shoot Me)

5

A follower of my youtube told me to check out a show entitled, The Girly Ghosthunters. Now, when I saw the name I was already getting the noose ready but I was a trooper and sat through the 13 episodes they have. Why did I sit through it all? I think it’s because I had no idea what to say about it and I was just sitting there with a look of “How could these people ever have a show in the first place” to click the “X” button.

Let’s get into the review. You have four girls attempting to be ghost hunters. In the opening sequence, you see their names and their favorite ghost hunting tools. So these four girls shove themselves in an RV and go places that are supposedly haunted. Sounds only okay at this point right?

Wrong! The majority of the show is just them interviewing people at the places of interest, they walk around like they are giving tours and then scare themselves at night by acting like city chicks in the woods.

They don’t show any of their findings nor give you any explanation at the end. It’s just a short recap of their idiotic screams. You can’t take the show seriously at all. When they do attempt to use the ouija board it’s clear that they are moving it and joking around. I can’t believe people like this get say with being signed for one season and people out there that have a great interest in paranormal investigation aren’t given a chance. seriously World… what is wrong with you.

Anyway, thanks creep on my youtube for making me want to jump off a bridge watching this crappy show.

Blood & Guts,
Mercy

Curtains (1983) Review

0

Hey Creeps. I can’t seem to sleep at the moment, so I thought I’d watch a random film and write my review while watching it. I just closed my eyes and clicked the film Curtains from the horror and suspense section of Hulu.

I’m about five or ten minutes into it and I’m already bored to pieces.The facial expressions… or should I say lack of facial expressions of the actors and actresses would make a corpse seem perky.

So basically, this actress is “re-surching” [that’s how she pronounced it] how it is to be a mad woman because that’s what she needs to play. And some creepy tickle giggly lady comes out of nowhere and makes me feel like I was just touched in the no-no zone.

Seems these mental patients are under some sort of creepy laughing gas. It’s quite annoying. They all look like people that need baths. Quite frankly, I don’t know if I can even finish the film. You can’t really tell whats going on all that much. You see laughing people, a guy that I think is the actress’s agent? The doctor and a nurse.

Oh look, a cheesy stand up comedy. That totally doesn’t lighten the mood what so ever. Okay, so now it switches to another actress with a bad attitude that seems like she’s probably an alcoholic when no one is looking. I have no idea what her purpose is in the film because its too hard to keep track of what exactly the plot of this film is.

Okay… so i guess an insane lady got out by her friend and… What the hell?! Who made this movie? Whoever did needs a good smack in the head. This movie should come with a map to point you in the direction of the plot.

20 minutes in you think that a guy is actually trying to kill a bimbo, but turns out they are just sick couple into creepy crap. I wouldn’t recommend this movie to roadkill. Every time you think the story is moving forward and a killing is going to happen it turns out its just a dream or a sick twisted fetish.

There is absolutely no main character, you barely hear any names spoken to keep up with the characters. And pretty much all these actresses want a part in some form of whatever yadda yadda and they supposedly get killed. I’m sorry.. I can’t do this. This movie is putting me to sleep.

I rate it ZERO Give an F’s.

Goodnight
