HHMMM: Day 28

I only have a few more days of horror movie madness left, so I am making the most of it as best I can. Today I got quite a few movies in. Some good, others...well...At least I started with a good classic!

The Mummy (73 mins/1932)

Kweeny's Rating: IMOTEP!

Summary: A classic story, of love, death and mummies! Boris Karloff is amazing in this! I love his performance as Ardeth Bey, otherwise known as Imotep! Poor Imotep is condemned and buried alive for sacrilege, but when a scroll is found along with his sarcophagus, he is brought back from the dead to find his long lost love. 

"You will not remember what I show you now, and yet I shall awaken memories of love... and crime... and death... "

11/11/11 (87 mins/2011)

Kweeny's Rating: I can't get those minutes back...

Summary: Wow. This was an absolute waste of my time. What a terrible movie. The acting was wooden, the plot...totally ripped off of better movies like Rosemary's Baby and The Omen. At least I ended up watching The Omen after just to get the bad taste of out my mouth from this. And apparently  there is another movie with the same name on Netflix. If it's as bad as this one, maybe I should ignore it. I know this picture looks cool, but this is probably one of the better death scenes in this.

The Omen (111mins/1976)

Kweeny's Rating: 666

Summary: Ah, now this was much better! If I am gonna watch a movie about the son of Satan (or reincarnation of Satan, etc) I want quality! I mean, Damian was born of a jackal! That's bad ass! And they don't have to resort to showing EVERYTHING because they know people will pick up on hints and references! Sometimes you just can't beat classics.

Hellbound: Hellraiser II (97 mins/1988)

Kweeny's Rating: It is not hands that call us! It is...desire...

Summary: This and the first Hellraiser always hold a special place in my heart. The rest of the series kinda goes downhill from here (except I do like parts of Bloodlines) but this movie is still pretty good. Probably because Clive Barker still had creative control when making it. The scene in the picture is particularly a fav of mine, though I have a few favorites in this. If you'd like more of a comprehensive review I've done on the entire series, just click on this link here. I have such sights to show you.

And that's the list for tonight! I'm probably gonna have some weird dreams after all the stuff I watched today.  Maybe I need to watch something funny to make it completely nuts in my head!

  1. The Omen is one of my favourite films of all time! It's such a good film. I didn't enjoy 11/11/11 either, I don't like the Darren Lynn Bousman 11/11/11 either though which is a shame he's a wonderful director
