ghostbusters-2-1989-movie-2

SYNOPSIS: The discovery of a massive river of ectoplasm and a resurgence of spectral activity allows the staff of Ghostbusters to revive the business. REVIEW: The monstrous success of “Ghostbusters” in 1984 guaranteed that a sequel would be put on a fast track to get made. Columbia pictures put immediate pressure on original writers Dan Aykroyd & Harold Ramis to script a sequel as quickly as possible. Pressure was also put on director Ivan Reitman … Continue reading

Film Review: Vamps (2012)

Vamps-2012-movie-3

SYNOPSIS: Two female vampires in modern-day New York City are faced with daunting romantic possibilities. REVIEW: This is a film which took me off guard a little bit. I’m well aware that vampires are all the rage at the moment, but it was something that I managed to steer relatively clear of. However, this film didn’t seem to be constrained by the same vampire ‘label’ in the way that a lot of other movies have … Continue reading

Top 10 Hottest Female Horror Film Leads

top-10-Horror-film-leads

Another tough one as there really is alot of sexy hot female leads within horror films. Rather than taking the obvious route of “hot ladies within horror”, I thought it better to focus on the sexy leads who are better known for their lead parts. Milla Jovovich as the Resident Evil lead is a great example of this, who pretty much is the face of Resident Evil films. The same could be said for Kate … Continue reading

Red-Lights-movie-Review-2012

SYNOPSIS: Psychologist Margaret Matheson and her assistant study paranormal activity, which leads them to investigate a world-renowned psychic. REVIEW: With a cast featuring the likes of Sigourney Weaver, Robert De Niro and Cillian Murphy, it pays to take notice. Though let’s not forget our new up-and-comer Elizabeth Olsen rounding out this great film. We live in a world of skeptics, paranormalists, and con artists. Especially when it comes down to the spirits beyond. Sigourney Weaver … Continue reading

Film Review: Aliens (1986)

Aliens-1986-Movie-1

SYNOPSIS: The planet from Alien has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, the rescue team has impressive firepower, but will it be enough? REVIEW: Ahh…1986, what a fine year it was. I had a cool fiance, a good job AND “Aliens” the first official sequel to “Alien” was released (No need to mention all of the Italian ripoff films with “Alien” in the title). And what expectations it brought along with it! No … Continue reading
