This week I had a chance to catch the new Wes Craven film My Soul to Take. I realize this movie has been out for two weeks now but this was the first chance to catch it after the crazy weekend that was Rock and Shock. It’s a vast improvement over his last true horror movie Cursed, (RED LINE was more of a thriller) he once again has three major themes working for him, major family issues with the main character (Nancy’s parents in Nightmare on Elm St all held a secret that they killed Fred Kruegar, and Cindy in Scream was still living with her moms murder over her head). Yes I realize I just mentioned 4 other films by the master of Horror but it was needed in order to explain the ups and downs of this movie. The use of cell phones and a phantom killer. The phantom killer was actually creepy and looked convincing as the Riverton Ripper. It was like a cross between Rob Zombie and a wet bum but still looked real creepy. Bigest problem I had with the movie was certain origins like of the Ripper were never explained. The movie was shot in 3-D, but I only had a chance to see it in 2-d. I was told I didn’t miss much. Check ou the show Sunday night for a more in-depth review.
Paranormal Activity 2 arrived in theaters about a year after the last one and a week before Saw7. Smart idea to release it before the final chapter of Horror most recently over done franchise. We will be covering this in detail coming up on the show Sunday. biggest complaint I have is why did it cost 3mil to make it basically looked just like the first one. Maybe because of more actors in this movie. In the original it was two main characters and two side characters. now we have 4 main characters a dog and 3 supporting actors. Two of which are Micah and Katie from Part 1. That is the only spoiler I will give away for now.
