Christmas Evil (1980) Review

0

Hello Devils & Ghouls,

Today I take a look at Christmas Evil that was created in 1980. It was under the horror section and here is the said description of the film:

Because of a boyhood trauma during Christmas, a man remains slightly obsessed with the holiday for the rest of his life, becoming a toy maker and keeping track of which children are naughty and nice. After learning of his company’s corporate greed he snaps and goes on a killing spree dressed as Santa.

When reading the description, I thought that this would be pretty interesting. Okay, so a guy suffers a boyhood trauma which will make him this eerie creepy guy lurking around town dictating whats naughty or nice and chops off the heads of people. So you go to view the trailer which looks like this:

 

And then… somehow after seeing that promotional clip…. you somehow manage to get to the full movie. And all I have to say is wow. It’s kinda… weird but it kept your attention – unlike Blood Bride in the previous review. This movie was out there enough to make you wanna go alright… I’ll check out the ending and when you get to the ending you think… Really…. That’s it… that’s what all this is about?

First off: His boyhood “Trauma” isn’t even anything that traumatic unless he had some weird incest love thing for his mom. Sure, seeing your parents grope each other in Christmas attire isn’t pleasing – No one wants to see that, but it won’t exactly make someone become obsessed with Santa Clause, Want to be Santa and kill people… Or watch your brother have a groping session with his wife through their window.

Harry – The character who is the main dude killing people – is a very soft spoken and shy guy. He has an obsession with making toys at the toy factory and gets mad when he’s promoted from the line because he has to be a “suit” and be greedy. This makes him mad and he has these angry twitches before finally going bonkers.

Throughout the movie, it’s hard to keep track of the characters. And it’s kinda weird that you see a little kid cutting nudey pics out of a magazine and this guy just gets obsessed with the kid. And leaves weird mud handprints outside of the kids house.

The killings are so beyond the rank of B-Horror movie that I don’t know what exactly to think. He kills right in front of people and then drives away and the cops still can’t catch him! So he goes to his brothers house ad people go after him with pitchforks and such.

It’s really cheesy but its so cheesy you can’t help but watch this frickin thing.

I rate it: 3 corpse babies.

I say this because even though its crap – it has your attention until the end and you wait to say “I regret putting this on” until AFTER the movie ends. That right there is an accomplishment in itself.

If you’re interested in checking this out, we found the full movie here:

 

 

Good day my devils! I’m off to see some live bands play.

Odd Dream

Hello my creeps.

I have to say I’ve had one of the strangest dreams to date.

All pertaining to shots/vaccines by health care providers.

The dream was urging people to get a shot to prevent some sort of disease.

Of course, a few rebels decided to go without the shot and try to figure out what was within these vaccines.

What they found out was that it wasn’t a vaccine at all, but embalming fluid of some sort.

They were preserving us while we were alive!

And those that had the shots were programmed and well preserved “zombies” in a sense that were controlled by mass media to hate each other until no one could have an intellectual conversation what-so-ever. (that isn’t not too far-fetched now is it?)

This embalming fluid was the cause of the over population problem as science took it too far to test a theory and now no one will die. Causing massive issues, panic, and terror.

It caused the end of man kind.

 

I want a slush puppy and a large fry. Have a good night.

Night Gallery (T.V. Series)

Night Gallery

Hello Creeps.

I must share with you my obsession with Night Gallery. This sequel to the television series, Twilight Zone (although not as epic as Twilight Zone), has always been one of my personal favorites. I’ve always been a fan of all vintage horror television series. It’s so interesting how the tales of horror and such pertain to certain aspects of current living.

It’s as if in mysterious tales they predicted the future. It’s quite uncanny and makes you think. That’s one thing I love in this world. If a film or t.v. series can really put your brain to work — it’s worth it. That is what we’re missing in today’s television and films.

Enough about that, into the review. I must say I enjoy the narration of Rod Serling: Rod Serling

He comes along after the theme song walking along a bunch of unusual paintings. The paintings usually have part of what the short story will be about. Serling’s introductions are quite intriguing and get you interested in the tales for the evening. My favorite episode would have to be from Season 2 — The episode entitled: Question of Fear and also the Class of ’99 which stars my ever so favorite, Vincent Price.

Although these tales are of horror, mystery, uncertainty and more… it gets deep within your soul and triggers deep thought. I’ve always been inspired by shows like Night Gallery, Twilight Zone, Outer Limits etc. Always peaked my interest as a child and even more so now as a young adult. Although, Twilight Zone the Original Series will always be my favorite — the cheesiness of Night Gallery holds a special place within my heart. I thank these shows for inspiration for my writing, my confidence in being the twisted individual I am, and my music.

Blood & Guts,

Winterbeast (1991) Review

4

Trailer:

I always love a good B-Movie. My boyfriend and I are completely obsessed with the 1991 film, Winterbeast. Mostly, because it makes our brains feel like home. I first stumbled upon Winterbeast when I was a little kid. I remembered that I used to imitate the dance of the crazy Inn Keeper. Most recently, my boyfriend and I watched it and the whole time it brought back odd memories of my childhood.

This film is honestly, only for a select few to enjoy. If you sit through this film and laugh, enjoy it, and can relate to all the fucked up shindigs that go on – Congrats. Winterbeast has chosen you.

To be honest, this film deserves a video review which my boyfriend and i will be happy to post when it’s finished.
