Bryan Trick ‘r Treats Early (Trick ‘r Treat Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 2nd, 2010

So I finally got to take a look at the horror movie “Trick ‘r Treat” and if you know me, then you know I am a cinephile.  Meaning I will see pretty much everything and also that I have a large affection for everything HORROR.  Over the last several years, it has been difficult for me to thoroughly enjoy a great horror film.  There are only a few exceptions.  I do not know if it is my childhood love for Halloween or my extreme passion for everything Horror, but this movie “Trick ‘r Treat” is the best Horror film to come out in years.  Now that is something to take notice of coming from me.

I really didn’t know anything going into this film other than it was a horror film about Halloween and that it followed several story lines and all connected at some point during the movie.  Kinda like “Pulp Fiction”.  I was hoping for genuine scares, comedic moments, blood, excellent death scenes, and even more blood.  I can safely say, that I received all of that plus more.

Trick ‘r Treat is basically a throwback to old Halloween Horror films and the traditions and holiday rules we all have grown to know.  It covers it all in this movie.  It connects several stories through out the movie through a very creepy little villain who is not named, but wears a scarecrow mask.  This little villain is so frightening that he will instantly haunt you for years to come.

We follow a group of spunky college girls, a psychotic principal, a horrific school bus  accident, a mean spirited child prank, a newly wed couple, and an old man’s strange intruder all with one directive.  Do not break the rules of Halloween.

This has quite a spectacular cast.  Brian Cox and Anna Paquin lend their talents to this film as well as several others you will recognize here and there.  The actors really helped this movie take it to the next level.

I cannot believe this film was not given its due date.  Only released straight to home video, this movie should have had a better marketing team and gotten into every theatre at the Halloween time.

I really have nothing to complain about in this movie.  It was everything I wanted in a horror movie.  This film will be a staple of horror film marathons and played round the clock come Halloween time.

See this movie as soon as you can and let me know what you thought of it.  I loved talking about his movie after I watched it.  Every single detail about it.  It was a hell of a lot of fun.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Deadtime Stories’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

91GOv1XP4JL._SL1500_

THE FILM

I simply can’t get enough of horror anthology films. It’s like getting three or four horror movies all in one. With films like ‘Chillerama‘, ‘Trick R Treat‘, ‘Body Bags‘, and ‘Creepshow‘, we’ve been exposed to a ton of great little horror shorts that have lived in our lives for decades. Some have been good, while others not so good. One thing is for sure though, all have been entertaining and memorable. Back in 1986, when a lot of these horror anthology films were being released, Jeffrey Delman made his own with ‘Deadtime Stories‘.

Annabelle Comes Home – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 27th, 2019

Set in the horrifying Conjuring universe where paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren travel around the world and investigate strange phenomenons, perform exorcisms, and help families out with evil spirits, have both seen some truly terrifying things. The catch is that it’s all real or at least based on real-life events. With all of these horror movies that started with The Conjuring, there have been a few spinoff movies. The most popular of them is the frightening possessed doll named Annabelle, which is now on its third movie titled Annabelle Comes Home. Directed by Gary Dauberman, who has been the lead writer on the past Annabelle films, this sequel is his first foray into the director’s chair with original filmmaker James Wan producing. The result is too much of a slow pace for its own good, in addition to taking itself too seriously in an already flooded cheap scare and tiresome plot that we have seen two dozen times before.

Favorite Movies of 2017!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 27th, 2017

Was 2017 a great year for movies? Of course it was. There were some excellent films to be released in 2017. There were also some bad ones for sure, but the focus on this article are some of the Best films that stuck with me long after viewing. Most people will give you their Top 10 list, but this is no Top 10, because there are just so many movies that I loved and feel passionate about, that I find it difficult and unpleasing to rank them.

Instead, these are my favorite movies of 2017, which I hope you’ve seen already. If you haven’t yet, you’re in for a real treat and I can’t wait for you to see them. Some of these films are still in theaters, while some are on Netflix, 4K UHD, and Blu-ray, so you’ll be able to quickly see any of these if you haven’t. I watched over 270 movies that were released in 2017 and these are my absolute favorites. I hope you get to see all of these, because I know you’ll love them. In no particular order…..

We have a very fun 60th episode of our fun podcast under the MULTI-MEDIA MEN banner called ‘Media-Ocrity‘, where the show is just – okay. Here on the show, we focus strictly on horror/sci-fi, comic books, and video games – basically all the fun stuff that tickles your fancy. In our 60th episode, titled ‘Stranger Lethal Weapons‘, we talk about the new Netflix shows ‘Stranger Things 2‘, ‘Mind Hunters‘, and the late breaking news on Kevin Spacey and the cancellation of ‘House of Cards‘. We also dive into ideas for ‘Lethal Weapon 5‘ since that is a thing now. Then we get into some quick video game coverage and onto overrated movies, which nearly killed me. Literally, I almost died. Then it was onto a ton of horror movie franchises and Dinner for 5, where we talk about who we would invite to a dinner party (living or dead).  It was so much fun. This episode is guaranteed to thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you. I am joined pop-culture wizard Jonathan Atterbury and comic book artist Jeremy Megert.

Blu-ray Review: ‘A Ghost Story’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 3rd, 2017

Written By Bryan Kluger:

THE FILM

(This film review portion is written by Audrey Evans.)

Fresh off the wings of his most commercial movie to date, Pete’s Dragon (2016), Director David Lowery floats back to his Indie roots with the dreamy fantasy drama, ‘A Ghost Story.’  This ponderous portrait of life, loss and existence will undoubtedly make art enthusiasts coo over its alluring framework and vision, but for those anticipating an intensely haunting experience, be prepared for more mood than material. Time is of the essence in this story; the right state of mind and patience will reward you, that is, if you’re still alert before the leisurely picture reaches its point.

Film Review: ‘Patriots Day’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 11th, 2017

Dan M., here….

screen-shot-2017-01-11-at-11-31-05-am

FULL DISCLOSURE: I was born in Massachusetts (moved in middle school) love all the sports teams and have close to 40 families members in and around the outskirts of Boston. The only reason I disclose this is because I watched the news closely during this whole ordeal, read two books on the events/survivors, and caught the excellent HBO doc that premiered late last year. I’m not an expert on the event but I feel like I know a bit more than a casual viewer. Most importantly I wasn’t there. I don’t know anyone who was lost. I can’t imagine what it is like to see a tragic event in your life monetized into a film so I am reviewing this strictly as a fan of movies and how it was portrayed as a movie. The politics, timing, and ramifications of turning events like this into films are for others to debate.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

Have you read ‘Hunger Games’?  Do you know what ‘Hunger Games’ is about?  If not you’re in for a real treat.  ‘Hunger Games’ is based on a trilogy of novels by Suzanne Collins.  It’s geared towards young adults.  The premise is a whole lot like ‘Battle Royale’ where a group of young kids or teenagers are picked in a lottery system to battle each other in a designated area until there is only one survivor.

Hey guys, Jana here,

There are a few things I’m looking forward to by the end of 2015 and watching ‘Krampus‘ is one of them. I can just about guarantee that after I watch this screamer, I will be adding the ‘Krampus Original Motion Picture Soundtrack‘ on vinyl to my “I survived the holidays, I must be rewarded” list.
