It seems that a lot has changed from the point that this was announced to now. It was originally going to be a prequel of sorts that would detail the origins of the virus and was going to focus on some sort of cruise ship colliding with an abandoned research vessel where the virus had been unleashed. Somewhere along the way things changed and it seems that none of us following the project were informed. Either way, the final result ended up being surprisingly decent and better than the previous sequel, although that's not exactly saying a whole lot.

I heard a lot of positive stuff on this film before seeing it, so I knew it would be good, but I didn't think I'd enjoy it as much as I did. It had a cool original story and a good amount of gore. The story is mainly about a Vietnam vet who is released from a small institution due to over-crowding and because they thought he was cured from being cannibalistic. Once he is released he tries to catch up with his old commander, but is shunned, because of an incident years ago when he was held prisoner - when the commander tried to help free them he was bitten on the arm.

I heard a lot of hype about this movie before seeing it which made me want to see it. It was said to be a very disturbing and gory movie, so I just had to see it for myself. After watching it I have to say that it does somewhat live up to the hype, though, it wasn't as disturbing as I thought it'd be, but there are some cringe-worthy moments.

Released in other countries this past Spring, the film underwent additional shooting after negative screenings proved that some scenes needed to be reworked, so a reported four new torture sequences were added to amp up the gore, while other scenes were shortened and extended. The first version of the movie was essentially just a psychological thriller with zero gore or torture sequences, and just followed Elisha's character as she tried to endure the mind-games that the killer was subjecting her to.

These new gore scenes are obviously just there for no reason other than to shock the audience and please the fans of the torture sub-genre and offer nothing to the overall story. However, some of the additional non-gore sequences sped up the pace and added a little story and edge that was missing from the first version. The movie went under some pressure when a billboard was posted near a middle school that depicted a series of images with the words "Abduction, Confinement, Torture, Termination" above it. The MPAA also gave the film a hard time in receiving its R-rating, which led to the delay in the release by a couple months.

Having never read the book or considered myself much of a fan of the original 1976 film, I went into this remake not expecting much and with a semi-open mind. I knew from the trailer that little was changed, so I figured the flick wouldn't try to pull any surprises on us. This isn't the first time it received the remake treatment, as NBC apparently released a made-for-TV movie back in 2002 starring Angela Bettis, which somehow flew passed me, because I've never seen it. I did, however, watch the terrible Rage: Carrie 2 in theaters back in '99. Until this review I've since had that atrocity blocked from memory. Whether you want to consider it another adaptation from the book or simply a remake of the original, either way, it's actually not that bad of a movie.

Carriers turned out to be a nice breath of fresh air in the usual infection sub-genre. Normally we see infected running around in a murderous stupor, but the infected in this flick are simply people suffering from a very contagious and deadly virus, nothing more. This is essentially just a survival road movie that examines the true nature of what the human race is forced to result to in this type of apocalyptic scenario.

Case 39 is one of those movies that is just plagued with US distribution troubles. Production was completed in 2007 and the pic was originally given a February theatrical release that year, but it was pushed until 2008, then again in 2009. Recently it was given a January 2010 theatrical release, but (no surprise) it never came out. Despite that, it has already been released in several other countries, with Mexico being the most recent. Having seen the movie I can't say that US viewers are really missing out on much, but it's still an above average horror fair.

1982's Cat People is a bit different from most of the horror films of that decade and certainly has its own unique style and charms. The film opens up in a surrealistic red desert to some very moody music, showing a bit of the mysterious Cat's origins and the aboriginal cult of followers they had. It is a very brooding, ambient, and interesting opening to a fairly unique film. After the atmosphere drenched opening the film shifts to then modern day New Orleans, where the rest of the film takes place.

Cell (2016)

Cell has had a pretty troubled production ever since the film rights were purchased shortly after the Stephen King novel was released. Initially Dimension Films was behind it and Eli Roth was attached to direct. He ended up leaving the project a few years later due to "creative differences" and it wasn't until another few years that things would pick up again. Directed by Tod Williams (Paranormal Activity 2) and completed in 2014, the film wouldn't get proper distribution until June of 2016 when it received an on demand release. It's a little sad considering it was originally planned to have a bigger budget and a wide theatrical release, though having finally seen the pic I can see why it ultimately landed on demand.
