Oh Jordan, What Have You Done?!

As an avid horror fan, there are directors and producers of whom I am confident in when they place their hands on a movie. And others that I lament how they got their hands on something.

Recently, Jordan Peele has emerged as a promising director. However, I would like to know what possessed him to do what he did with Candyman.

Where do I even begin…

Day 30: Ringu – #D30DH

This is really kind of fitting. The last day, I have the original to the one that was on the last day last 30 Days of Horror.

A couple of teenagers, a cursed tape. You know the drill…


My Verdict

I don’t like this movie, I’ve said it before. The original is way worse. I don’t know why, but it freaks me the hell out.

Day 29: The Cabin In The Woods – #D30DH

Day 28: A Quiet Place Part 2 – #D30DH

Anyone who has been here for some time knew this was absolutely going to be on this year’s list.

I am not going to give you a rundown of this one. Instead, we’ll go back in time…

A Quiet Place : Thoughts and Review

Day 29: A Quiet Place – #D30DH

This movie continues from the exact point the last ended. Gives a brief history and CONTINUES!!!


My Verdict

A lot of sequels fail because of one thing – the forget the premise set up the first movie, acting like it doesn’t exist.

A Quiet Place Part 2 did what a sequel is supposed to do. Continue the story, build on the lore, answer some questions and deliver on the scare factor


Mr. John Krasinski did not forget, he built upon what he had established.

Day 27: The Empty Man – #D30DH

From the man comes his thoughts. From his thoughts come the dreams. From the dreams comes the power. From the power comes the bridge. From the bridge comes the man.

An ancient cult. A power passed down through the ages. One objective…

The Empty Man


My Verdict

The Empty Man was a breath of fresh air. In a time where most horrors were horrendous, and I had dismissed it based on its name. But boy was I in for a rude awakening.

Dante

Day 26: The Hallow – #D30DH

“If you trespass upon them they’ll trespass upon you.”

Adam Hitchens and his family – wife Claire, son Finn – travel to a remote Irish village enclosed by a massive forest. – why oh why do we keep going to these remote places.

He specialises in plant and fungal life. While exploring the forest with his son, he happens upon a carcass with a strange fungal substance emanating from it. He takes a sample home. His wife meets a local Colm who is not amused that they have moved in.
