Rocker-turned-director Rob Zombie is back with yet another grimy horror piece titled 31, which is in reference to the movie taking place on Halloween. Set in the mid-70's, the pic follows a group of greasy traveling carnies on their way to the next venue when they're kidnapped and forced to take part in a sadistic game hosted by some wannabe aristocrats. The game pits them against various psychotic killers in clown attire and they must do whatever necessary in order to survive the next 12 hours. If they're somehow able to survive the ordeal they can go free, but they've reportedly never had a winner before, so good luck with that!

Helmed by Japanese director Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge films), 7500 originally had an August 2012 theatrical release, but of course that never happened. In fact, it would go on to sit on the studio shelves for the next couple years, eventually getting a modest theatrical run in various foreign countries over this past Summer. Normally when a film sits around for a while it's because of some kind of internal issue with the studio and not necessarily a reflection of the quality of the movie itself. However, having finally seen this it's pretty clear that the studio wanted to bury this atrocity and forget it ever existed.

Originally titled Flight 75, the movie focuses on several passengers on a plane that's departing LA and heading to Tokyo. Along the way a passenger dies for some reason, forcing the crew to clear out the top class to store his body until it's time to land. Shortly following his death our leads start seeing strange things and mysteriously begin to disappear one by one. Could it be the spirit of the dead passenger?

A Blood Pledge (2009)

South Korea is never in short of ghost flicks and A Blood Pledge is no different than what us Asian horror vets have already seen. Also known as Whispering Corridors 5, the film has no connection to the previous installments aside from the fact that they all revolve around a ghost in an all girl's school. In this movie the story revolves around a group of girls, whom decide to get together one night and perform a suicide pact, where they would all jump off the school's roof together. Naturally only one of the students actually goes through with it, leaving the rest having to deal with the dead girl's pesky ghost.

Good horror anthologies are generally hard to come by especially if they're seasonally themed, so I wasn't sure what to expect from A Christmas Horror Story. Luckily the movie turned out to be surprisingly entertaining, gory, and at times even creepy. And for once there's no generic wraparound or cheesy host introducing each segment. Instead, the movie takes a more Trick 'r Treat-esque approach and has each story loosely linked together. The film goes back and forth from the individual tales, giving each enough time to develop and effectively keep the pace going by not focusing too long on a single one.

Day 2 of our marathon brings us another Christmas tale.  Let’s crack open the eggnog, throw another yule log on the fire, and toss this nutcracker of a movie into the bluray player. A Christmas Horror Story is an anthology movie where the separate stories are all played randomly throughout the film. A couple of them are connected but really these scenes of the stories are played jumping from one to another, leaving the viewer confused and disjointed.

The first story is basically just William Shatner sitting in a radio station covering the news stories and playing Christmas music while he gets drunk. It’s pretty much the funniest part of the movie and Shatner really hams it up.  I wish more of the movie was focused on this.

A Dark Song is an Irish horror drama from first time writer/director Liam Gavin that's been getting quite a bit of praise from the festival circuit. There's actually some merit to the praise since it's a fairly unique genre effort that's more of a multi-layered character study than a straight forward horror film.

The story follows a grieving Mother, who enlists the help of a brutish foul-mouthed occultist to perform a ritual that will grant the user any wish they desire. Unfortunately, the ritual itself can take up to several months to perform, so the two seclude themselves in an old home in the Welsh outskirts. From then on they must be on a specific diet and of the right frame of mind before they can even begin. Once their minds and bodies are ready, they must memorize and master each and every segment of the ritual. After several months, if they've mastered everything, only then will their wish be granted.

With the success of the Paranormal Activity films and the recent surge of exorcism flicks we've naturally received a flood of copycats and spoofs along the way, many of which have been rather subpar in many aspects. It was only a matter of time before we got a slightly different and comedic take on the haunted house sub-genre. In this case it's with a primarily black cast of characters and how they'd react in the same situation that many of these white folks seem to find themselves in. Thus, we have A Haunted House, which brings Marlon Wayans back into the horror spoof fold after the first two Scary Movies.

A Night to Dismember (1983)

Its been a long time since I last gave a movie a 1-rating, but A Night to Dismember certainly deserves it. With its horrible editing, script, directing, acting, and even dubbing, exploitation director Doris Wishman surely exceeds herself when it comes to making crappy films. Born in 1920 Doris Wishman didn't hit the film scene until the 60s with cheesy nudies and eventually exploitation flicks. Though, by the time Dismember was released the exploitation scene went more mainstream, leading this mess without proper distribution.

Like most of you, I had it out for Platinum Dunes since the moment I heard of their plans for a Texas Chainsaw Massacre re-do.  But, to my surprise, I actually enjoyed it quite a bit and became open to the idea that they would be remaking the movies I had grown up with.  Unfortunately, with each of their films my hatred began boiling with the fire of a thousand burning suns.  They’ve created a pattern for their remakes and, despite my hopes for something better, A Nightmare on Elm Street came out EXACTLY how I feared it would.
