Horror Movie Night!!!
Tonight I am treating myself to a Horror Movie Marathon!!!! Let's take a look at the list and have a little movie review time shall we?
2 out of 5 starsOne of the 8 Movies to Die For, which gave me hope for this movie. But I was disappointed. It was nice and bloody (which is the way I like um!) but it was very boring. The story is about three buddies from Texas who decide to go to Mexico where they can be free to do whatever the hell they want. I should have known right then that it was going to be bad. There they get mixed up with some kind of cult where people are sacrificed to some god. It never explained what the cult is about exactly, and the story was kinda choppy. Overall it sucked. I didn't even finish it. Next!
3 out of 5 stars
A classic horror movie. I've known about this movie for a long time and have heard the legend about saying Candyman in the mirror five times, but never got the chance to watch it. I remember trying to gather up the guts to say it myself in the bathroom. I think I did it once, and I'm still alive today! Or maybe that was Bloody Mary...anyway. Candyman is a different kind of supernatural killer. Instead he uses the main character, Helen to kill his victims. This of course gets Helen in quite a bit of trouble. The story is good, though I didn't understand some elements of it. Also, it never explains how Candyman got his name, or why he appears after saying his name 5 times in the mirror. The movie had a few holes in it but it wasn't bad overall.

This one was very interesting. The story revolved around Heather who, in the movie, played Nancy in the original Nightmare on Elm street. Freddy comes alive through the movies which aren't really movies but Heather's life? I dunno. The whole movie/real life thing confused me. Otherwise the movie was pretty good. It wasn't too cheesy and it had good suspenseful moments. The only thing I really didn't like was Freddy's makeup. It looked totally fake and plastic. I don't know why they changed it from the original. Maybe because this is a different Freddy. The real Freddy? I don't know! The only other Freddy movies I have seen are the original and the newest 2010 version. Maybe if I had seen the others in between I would understand more.
That's the end of my horror movie night. It's late and bed time for me!
