Hostel: Part II

So disturbing and yet I can’t seem to look away...

I’m up to page 96 with the werewolf spec, but I still have a long ways to go. The opening sequence is killing me.

The Lost Room

Remember the good old days when TV shows, movies and mini-series would actually wrap up all their loose ends? They leave a whole lot dangling here. Still, it was pretty entertaining ride.

Night Watch

I’ve got this huge backlog of movies that I’ve been meaning to blog about and “Night Watch” is probably the most deserving on the pile. The film has been around for a few years, and enjoys a bit of a cult following, but I only “discovered” it a couple months ago. Now stop me if you’ve heard this before: the story involves a secret war among supernatural beings that has been going on since... forever. Okay, it might not be so deserving in terms of originality, but as foreign horror movies go, “Night Watch” kicks all kinds visual ass. It’s the first installment of what’s supposed to be a trilogy and includes chosen ones, prophecies, shape-shifting owls, vamps, you name it. Director Timur Bekmambetov creates a lasting impression with his creative visuals. Looks like he was able to do heck of a lot with very little. It’s no wonder that one of the studios snatched him up to helm the adaptation of the graphic novel, “Wanted”.
Right now, torture porn is all the rage -- well, except for “Turistas”, don’t know what happened there -- but it’s nice to see that there are filmmakers out there trying to bring supernatural back. Keep an eye out for "Day Watch".

Blood and Chocolate

Another werewolf movie to hit theaters in January. You can check out the trailer over at www.comingsoon.net. Read about this project a while ago but forgot all about it until now. By the looks of the trailer and the “from the producers of Underworld” caption, you’re going to get the comparisons, which I’m guessing, is exactly what the “producers of Underworld” want. Whatever you want to call it, “Underworld Junior”, “Dawson’s Paw”, “One Wolf Hill”... you gotta bow to the power of the teen female horror fan because Hollywood sure does. As far as I can tell, “Blood & Chocolate” and my werewolf spec might share a few things in common but they’re competely different animals.
