I saw The Hamiltons. It was cute but amateurish. Not scary.

Party of Five, American Beauty, TX Chainsaw... More like a joke with a punchline than a horror movie.

I don't think it was meant to be "scary" just a new take on an old standard. Vampires as serial killers is a cool concept.

Gravedancers started out okay, but after the exhumation scene it was just a big yellow ball of cheese. Cheesy effects, cheesy acting, cheesy action. I feel like a piece of baguette lost at the bottom of a congealing fondue pot.

I just watched Unrest and I kinda liked it for the ick factor. The lead actress had nice Bollywood curves and a surprising amount of modesty for a horror flick heroine. She looked a lot like Britney Spears! The lead cadaver was like a big floppy latex work of art. I thought the story was rudimentary but not horribly scripted. I liked the concept of a big huge fishtank filled with formaldehyde that the corpses were stored in. Very post-Fear Factor. It reminded me of a trip to Florida when I was a kid, when we went to see those Weeki Wachee mermaids.

For a crappy low-budget horror flick Unrest was pretty entertaining. I couldn't help laughing when the "ghost" painted shower curtains and doors with the image of this famous idol in blood, but it turned out looking like a cartoon chimp.

Just a reminder: The latest AD HF flicks hit the stores this week:

Click here, and thanks to Empress Steph

Rent at your own risk, of course. But then, horror fans are used to that.

Stopped watching Tooth and Nail less than an hour in. It might've gotten better after that, but I was pretty bored by the acting and script.

I have to admit this one at least *sounds* interesting:

Frontier(s)

Scott, know anything about it? It's under the AfterDark Horrorfest banner, fwiw. Comes out in mid-May.

Is there anything worth watching in the latest batch of After Dark Horrorfest flicks?

Heard mixed things about the whole lot but quite a few horror critics singled out Autopsy, which has low budget but good cast, as being good once it gets moving, and Broken got some good reviews too. Not sure about the others.

Paging Scott Weinberg...

Hey guys!

It's not exactly k'pow-zang horror, but I quite liked THE BROKEN when I saw it at Sundance. Then at Tribeca I saw DYING BREED (been there, done that, still liked it tho) and FROM WITHIN, which is a snoozer with a halfway-intriguing Twilight Zone premise.

For broad pulpy gore, I've no problem recommending AUTOPSY. And PERKINS' 14 was a bit better than I thought it would be.

SLAUGHTER is a solid short stretched (mercilessly) into feature length, VOICES is so-so for a rainy day if you've never seen an Asian horror flick, and BUTTERFLY EFFECT 3 is the same gimmick as before, only with a slasher/whodunnit wedged into the middle.

And now I eat!

But you've inspired me to update my Best Horror DVDs of 2009, so thanks. Also, give DONKEY PUNCH a shot. Another one that doesn't have an original bone, but the skeleton is still shiny and new.
