I noticed I am really in the minority on this one. But I enjoyed it quite a bit. It has good cast and the story kept my interest with ease. Going by the trailer I seen for this film, it is what I expected going in. A movie of be careful what you ask for... you just might get it.

I found this one to be a decent continuation to the first. While I got used to the monster in the first one.,.. there was some decent moments with him in this one. And I liked the weapons he crafted to take out the wheels on the bus. I think I liked the cast better in the first one as well... but still enjoyed this one .

My Thoughts:

This film is a bit of a mixed bag, on one hand it has some good atmosphereand some decent effects, but on the other hand there was several problems for me. First off I really didn't care about any of the characters. Plus there is a lot of dark scenes in this film that made it hard to keep up with what is going on at times. Combine that with a slow moving story and I really didn't enjoy this film as much as I was hoping to which is a shame because I did like the trailer when I saw this. But over all not a terrible way to waste an hour and a half.

My Thoughts:

I was looking forward to this one when I first saw the trailer. It has a great cast though I was a bit disappointed with the way they did Tilda Swinton's character her character could have been so much better. While there was a few laughs I was also disappointged there as well. I did however like the way the zombies were done. Over all a decent waste of time.

I was actually surprised by the low ratings this one seemed to be getting. I liked the atmosphere as well as how they did the Banshee. Sure the other effects could have been better. I liked the story line and the characters. Sure it is not the best in it's genre, but it kept me entertained through-out.. and that is all that really matters.

My Thoughts:

I so love the horror movies of the '80s. This is probably because the early '80s is when I first started watching horror, And Christine has always been a favorite of mine. Matter of fact this film is probably my first taste of Stephen King who I have since become a big fan. This film has a good story that keeps your attention through-out as well as characters you care about.This is one I definitely recommend if you never seen it.

My Thoughts:

I watched this one with my daughter today. Her pick. I found it to be a fun... albeit silly film. But I am sure it was meant to be. After all it is a family Halloween film so it is children friendly for the most part. Through some of it I was annoyed with the main cast's over-acting. But once I got used to the idea it added to the fun. I can see adding this to my yearly Halloween viewing... though for me it is more to make fun of and laugh at. I feel comfortable recommending this one... it is worth the time put in to watch it.

My Thoughts:

This has been one of my favorites for years. I been a big fan of Stephen King for a many years... I am also a fan of Denise Crosby. It was also fun to see Fred Gwynne as well. So both the writing and the cast is a plus for me. The atmosphere here is excellent. The story line is very good. While Louis is obviously a smart man what with him being a doctor and all... this story shows time and time again he is not a very wise man. He seems to lose himself more and more as the story goes on. This is definitely a film I would recommend... well worth the time put in to watch it!

My Thoughts:

This probably won't be a popular opinion as it seems many people do not like remakes period. But I have always been for giving them a chance to see what they do with them. And this remake is one of the reasons why. They took the main story line of the original and them went in their own direction for the actual story. Giving us a completely differnt stoy. Almost as in how would this story be written in a parralel universe. In this case I definitely like the original better but feel this one is definitely worth the watch in it's own right. I think they tried to go in a darker place then the original.I think the biggest problem I had is I wasn't happy with the choice of actor for the father. On the other hand I liked John Lithgow as Jud.

My Thoughts:

After watching the original and the remake this one was a disappointment. I did find it to be an average flick but definitly no more then that. The stoey wasn't nearly as good and I really didn't care for any of the characters. I get the feeling when the boy brought his mother back and she held out her arms to him... he was supposed too look creepy but he really didn't pull it off I. The story line is sub-par and I barely found the ending entertaining. I wouldn't go out looking for this one.

My Thoughts:

I wasn't all that impressed with this one. Weak story line and didn't care about the characters, It didn't even seem like that cast cared too much as they didn't seem to gived it their all. I will give it credit that I was able to make it all the way through the film. Sometimes that is hard or impossible to do. Nothing here to recommend.

I am starting to feel like the Nostalgia Critic... I watched it so you don't have to!

My Thoughts:

I haven't watched this one since it first came out. I somehow remember it being better then whay it is. But it is a decent antholog horror. Just a touch of gore and effects here. I found this one to be no more then an average film.
