Tomorrow is October 1st, how are you going to kick off the halloween season?
Blood Runs Cold (2011)
This film had a very small budget, very small. Which is always a toss up, on one hand there’s a chance where you’ll end up with an underrated film that stands up to the budget. On the other hand, you might end up with someone just completely forgettable. Blood Runs Cold is definitely forgettable.
Two couples stay in a cottage that happens to get snowed in. They aren’t alone though, an axe wielding killer is also there, waiting, and watching. This slasher film lacks a lot of direction, the characters are dumb, lack common sense, and in one scene in particular one of victims stops to clean the blood spill on the floor.
The killer looks pretty cool, I enjoyed the get up. But that might be the only thing I enjoyed about this movie, there’s a decent amount of blood but the whole movie as a package just falls flat.

My Amityville Horror (2012)
A documentary on the Amityville Horror story, with the eldest child, Daniel Lutz recapping his memories regarding the events.
A number of interviews with him, and some other people. Daniel shows the camera different areas in the neighborhood and has a wide range of emotion throughout the shoot. Plenty of emotion, some anger, and it really shows how he grew up being known as the “Amityville kid”.
If you’re a skeptic of Amityville this is still worth a watch, there’s a lot of personal information that Daniel talks about. How his stepfather added more to the story, and how his stepfather was also very into the paranormal. When asked certain questions he couldn’t answer them. Overall a very nice look into Amityville, if you like documentaries of paranormal stuff it’s a good decent watch.

Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014)
Welp. Here it is, Sharknado 2, going into the premier it was getting way more than enough hype. A lot more than it really needed, I was excited about a sequel than with all the press surrounding it I was feeling more suspicious about it. Always go with your gut kids.
Two survivors from the original Sharknado are flying to New York to promote one of their new books “How to Survive a Sharknado” but who would’ve guessed that another sharknado would strike, and it so happens to hit the plane. With it’s path destined to hit New York it’s up to them to stop it.
Oh what a letdown this was, I wasn’t expecting the sequel to be better than the first, but I wasn’t expecting it to be as bad as it was. The first one was bad in a good way, a lot of spoofs and dumb moments. The sequel, however, tried way too hard to be a bad movie.
Too much trying hard, all around, they crammed a bunch of cameos in. As much as they possibly could, way too many for it’s own good. I can’t talk about the plot because it is what you would expect. Nothing more, plenty less.
Was it too soon for a sequel? Yeah, way too soon. I just can’t wrap my head around it, it didn’t take make to make the first one awesome, and you have more money to put into it. What do they do with it? Throw a bunch of names in there, and rip off other movies (evil dead rip at the end made me like it a little less) and we all saw that Kill Bill rip off.
The goods, sharks, sharks, and more damn sharks. A lot more sharks this time around, and a lot more dumb deaths too.
I would’ve been okay without seeing this. Sharknado 2 was a miss by a long shot. Sadly, I’m sure this won’t be the last of them.

One of the few times you actually might be safer going into the water! Sharknado! If you know me, or have been a follower of Ingeinwetrust for a while, you know how much I watch shark movies, from the bad, the worse, and the sometimes good. I watched this when it first appeared on Syfy, and I absolutely loved it due to the fact that it was just so bad and it was filled with so many shark references throughout the film. Also, Tara Reid coming back to the big screen? I wasn’t mad at it, and I thought she did a particularly good job in this.
A hurricane starts up in the middle of the ocean which causes a bunch of sharks to arrive in Los Angeles. The storm gets increasingly worse which causes tornadoes, filled with sharks. These sharks literally start flying through the air and into windows, destroying people, and causing mayhem within it’s path.
A group of survivors, inside of a bar decide to help one of them by tagging along in attempts to save his family that are located in the city. The only problem is that the closer they get, the more sharks seem to appear. Plenty of blood in this one, and the CGI wasn’t horrible either. The way they destroyed the sharks was interesting but definitely made a boom.
The film has a decent pace throughout, but really picks up towards the last half hour by a lot. The acting overall was great for a Syfy movie. I enjoyed this movie for the amount of cheese it provided, it was a lot of fun to watch and so dumb I couldn’t help but enjoy it.

Axe Giant: The Curse of Paul Bunyan (2013)
A group of ‘young adults’ attend a first time offenders boot camp in the woods. They discover that Paul Bunyan is not only a legend, but he’s real, and he’s really pissed off. I guess that’s when you steal a horn from his ox’s burial ground.
The acting in the film is really dull, and really boring. What’s worse than the acting are the effects, Paul Bunyan looking like a giant hobo with an axe. The flick has a lot of blood, I wouldn’t say there was a lot of gore but there was definitely a lot of blood. Axe Giant really lacked a story line, there really wasn’t much to go on and it just kinda played on. I was expecting a tall dude with an ax running around killing people in some sweet flannel, instead he’s as big as the trees in the woods.
Axe Giant wasn’t the worst film I’ve seen, but it didn’t do much for me. If the movie had more plot points, and a better looking Bunyan it would’ve been a little better. I do give them props for attempting to make a horror based flick on Paul Bunyan.

FDR: American Badass (2012)
Once in a while you find films that are so over the top that you can’t help but enjoy. This is one of them.
A werewolf gives good old president FDR polio, he finds out that the werewolves are working with those damn Nazis. You think the president will sit around (pun intended) and just take it? Hell no he won’t, he’s going to war, and he’s cussing up a fuckin’ storm. Bound to a chair, but not useless FDR’s good friend Albert Einstein builds him a chair of mass destruction. Attached with guns, and more guns.
Some scenes stand out more than others, but overall this is quite enjoyable. An over the top b-movie that works in many ways. Grab some food, grab a seat, and sit back so you can enjoy this flick. Oh, and if there’s a doubt in your head about watching this, Kevin Sorbo plays Abraham Lincoln.

A Haunted House (2013)
A spoof based on Paranormal Activity. Malcolm moves in with his girlfriend Kisha, thinking it would be a perfect relationship filled with sex all of the time. But things don’t go according to plan when Kisha brings a ghost that’s attached to her along. Desperate for help Malcolm talks to a psychic, a ghetto priest, and tries to record things around the house to see what’s going on.
A Haunted House had a few laugh out loud moments, but it was nothing more than another Scary Movie sequel with sexual tones throughout. It could have been funnier I guess, or maybe it’s just getting old already. You’ll probably get more laughs from actually watching Paranormal Activity than you would watching this crap.
I’m not sure why it’s becoming a more common thing, the best parts of the movie were shown during the trailer. I’d suggest watching something else, it wasn’t horrible by any means, but it wasn’t knee slapping funny either. If you do decide to watch this, it might be better if it’s a group viewing.

Sand Sharks (2011)
First off, what would you expect from a movie entitled “Sand Sharks”? The title says it all, literally, it says it all. A shark that attacks via sand. No one is safe. An underwater earthquake causes a crack beneath the oceans surface, unleashing sharks, and with a festival unfolding at a beach, it really provides a feeding ground for some angry sand sharks and that’s when the attack start. Brooke Hogan stars as a shark expert, There’s explosives, and blood.
The film isn’t as gory as Piranha was, it doesn’t even have the same amount of nudity. So if you’re looking for a shark movie with a bunch of unnecessary gore, look elsewhere. If you’re looking for a fun flick you can sit back and just laugh at, go and give this one a watch. The acting is bad, but nowhere as bad as the damn CGI.
Definitely another bad shark movie, but enjoyable to say the least. If you think you’re going to end up watching the next Jaws or something, then, well I hope you end up on a beach so a sand shark can tear your ass apart.

What was the last movie you watched?
I wanna know, what is the last horror movie you watched?
So much to do. Such little time.
I’m backed up on reviews, I’m thinking maybe 40-50 behind. So I figure maybe I can crank out 5 before I post, this way I’ll be all caught up. I’m horrible at this as of late, all types of block going on in my head. But this is still a main focus for me. I’ll try to get caught up with some fun stuff in the process.
