Deep Sea Danger: Sea Monster Horror Films

The deep sea has often been called the one place on earth we know the littlest about. Whether this is true or not I have no idea but pop culture has been for years milking mans fear of something evil below him in the depths. Take a look at classic fiction such as Moby Dick or 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, both feature a giant creature viciously attacking men. Take it back even further to Greek myths and Poseidon, Davy Jones Locker?
So when film came along it was only natural that it too would jump on the band wagon and produce its own myths about creatures in the sea. These films became as popular as both cult favourites and blockbusters that they launched their own sub-genre. I can’t possibly go through every single one now but I have decided to go through the more intriguing and interesting ones.

Halloween Fan Films

I am afraid I must apologise. This was originally to be posted on Halloween but I was out the whole day and had no time at all to finish it. I knew I would have to post it since I had promised the makers of the various films but time has been short over the past weeks and i struggled to finish it. Finally I have it finished and posted .Now when contemplating what to do for Halloween a number of ideas passed through my head. First I decided I wanted to do something connected with the film series (1978-2009), as it is the only real opportunity to do so ( Halloween films in January would be weird, I’ll bet not as weird as in November!). The internet is full of review of the original and it’s sequels that I decided I would have to do something new. Book reviews? No, I only have a copy of Halloween III: Season of the Witch. DVD reviews? Not really fun enough. Then it hit me. Fan Films.

Let Me In (2010)

Now normally I only do one review a month but three reasons led me to posting this review now:

1: I’ll forget all the great things if I don’t post now

2: I posted a review of Hammers first movie this month so why not do their latest one as well?

3: Everybody should see it and it’s already been out a week and two days! (Don’t read on if you haven’t seen it, major spoilers)

The Curse Of Frankenstein (1957)

By the time the British studio Hammer got round to making this, their first gothic horror, they had already made three sci-fi/ horror films. Made in black and white these were mostly typical 50’s B movies but they had a hint of something special, something different to the others. James Carreras (the big boss of Hammer) decided that perhaps horror was the way to go, this and in fact all the Hammer films made after The Curse of Frankenstein were the results.
