Omen III: The Final Conflict (1981 dir. by Graham Baker)

A sequel that didn't need to be made! Honestly a downfall of the horror genre is that sequels were cheap and made a lot of money so they just kept getting made even though most are not good!

Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice (1992 dir. by David F. Price)

I think there's camp cult classic value in the original Children of the Corn. That does not extend to its sequels. 

 

 

Queen_of_the_Damned.jpg

Queen of the Damned (2002 dir. by Paul Goldman + Michael Rymer)

This is Aaliyah's final movie. But as sad as that is, I'm cutting it because she deserved a better final movie than an Anne Rice vampire movie sequel.

I am not the Shape because I would have not nominated so many movies pre-1970 and would have nominated MORE SEQUELS.

Doctorx.jpg

Doctor X (1932 dir. by Michael Curtiz)

 

Pre-code Hollywood was a fascinating time. There were so many things that filmmakers got away with and in this movie those things were cannibalism, murder, rape, and prostitution. This is truly a horror classic and even stars one of the original Scream Queens in Fay Wray (who you might remember from a different movie I cut in the last round). The story is of the titular Doctor X(avier) trying to expose a serial killer who not only kills his victims but also partially cannibalizes them. He is initially suspected by Detective Taylor who gives Dr X 48 hours to expose the real killer and clear his name. So he brings all the suspects to a beach side estate (as one does) and tries to essentially use an electrocardiogram to expose the killer by reenacting their crimes. The movie was gruesome and terrifying and well-received by both critics and a financial success. 

 

A fun fact, this movie was produced in both black-and-white and technicolor and up until 1978 it was thought the technicolor version had been lost to time. That was the year Jack Warner (of Warner Bros) died and the technicolor version of the film was found in his private estate.

Thetingler.jpg

The Tingler (1959 dir. by William Castle)

 

I wanted to give this movie its own separate write-up even though I didn't have to because I wanted to give a shout-out to William Castle who if he were alive and making movies today would LOVE the advent of 4D in theaters. Because he loved putting fun sh*t in the theaters for a 4D experience. In this movie some theaters installed "Percepto!" which vibrated during certain points at the movie. The Tingler is a movie where a scientist discovers that the sensation of spine tingling during fear is caused by a parasite at the base of every person's spine and it curls up and feeds when its host is afraid effectively causing them to die of fear if the parasite curls up long enough. This curling can only be relieved by screaming. A mute and deaf woman incapable of screaming was killed by the tingler who was able to escape her body and the scientist has to neutralize the dangerous creature.

Why would you cut Skeleton Key?

 

This is Anne for the following reasons.

 

1. I’m confused.

2. She’s nominated more films that I like.

3. She trapped me with one of my favourites.

The Serpent and the Rainbow

I’m guessing this is the tenth film in Potterland since Radcliffe is also in this.

Constantine

How hot is Rachel Weisz? She is like a creature from another planet. We do not deserve such talented and beautiful people in this world. 

Keanu is alright. I don’t think he’s an amazing actor so it’s just an alright film. The plot is around him working as an exorcist and helping a woman prove her sisters suicide wasn’t a suicide. Whys he even holding the cats head like that? I hold cats heads when I’m rubbing my face in theirs but he has a sinister look in his eyes. I’m sure Elliott wouldn’t look at his cats like that!
