“He’s almost as hairy as Robin Williams”

In honor of the elections and all the wonderful campaign ads we’ve seen, I thought a good movie would be about a pack vicious hungry wolves creatures craving human flesh. Like politicans encrouching in on a campaign contributor, the story revolves around a group of British solders sent out on a training mission in the highlands of Scottland. They soon encounter what’s left of a special ops team which is mostly gooey bits and pieces and eventually arrive at the conclusion something might be dangerous in the woods. Was it a ravenous bear? crazy racoons? vicious tree squirrels? Nope…the more logical choice is a pack of werewolves. The team high-tails it out of there and holds up in a abandoned house for their last stand. If only they had some kibble and bits to throw out the window. Some great action and gore in this film. If you liked “aliens” and laugh when your dog bites the mailman you’ll love this movie.

Happy Haloween
Here’s some quick recommendations for your horror marathon that you may not have seen.

1. Night of the Living Dead 90’s Remake
A great remake of the classic black and white. Tom Savini directs and creates a unique vision of the classic tale. There’s a couple twists and turns you don’t expect and the female protaginist in this is a much stronger character than the original Barbara.

2. Lady in Black
A surprisingly creepy frightening movie that was actually shown on PBS at Christmas at Midnight. Not what I’d call a great Christmas movie. It’s starts out slow but gets very creepy about halfway through and a few key scenes in this movie that will chill you to the core.

3. Prince of Darkness
John Carpenter’s great dark horror movie about Evil essence trapped in a jar buried in an ancient church. There’s some imagery in this movie that will haunt you with the broadcast visions of the future.

Other films that will give you a good chill: The Thing, The Others, Blair Witch Project, Alien, The Descent, Evil Dead, Hellraiser, Phantasm, The Shining, Silence of the Lambs, Jaws, Texas Chainsaw Massace.
