Black Sheep

This quite possibly might be one of the best horror movies of all time. Not because of the gore or the scariness. But because it has killer sheep for fucks sake! Not just killer sheep, but weresheep as well. How can that not make it great? This movie is packed with plenty of gore and humor. I mean come on, how can you not laugh while watching a movie about killer sheep? The special effects are surprisingly pretty damn good, and the plots not too bad either. I've seen big budget movies with worse effects and plots than this. All in all I give this movie a thumbs up. If you're looking for a fun, grotesque movie, then Black Sheep is for you. I wouldn't recommend for the squeamish.

Friday The 13th (2009) Review

I have to admit that I was skeptical when I heard they were going to be doing a remake of the classic Friday The 13th. But after seeing it (twice) I must say that I was quite impressed. I've been a long time fan of the franchise. I love them all, even the cheesier ones. This new Friday movie has everything that the first four brought to the table. You've got your group of teenagers going into the woods. There's some excellent T & A, which as of late was a major element that was lacking in the Friday series. This re-visioning is unique, because you actually get to see Jason as a person and not just some crazed killer who lives in the woods. You get to see how he lives, and you get to see some emotion. Now, that emotion is just anger topped with a little bit of rage, but it's emotion nonetheless. I look forward to the continuing killings of Mr. Voorhees in this new Friday saga. I hope this opens the door for many more sequels over the years to come.
