ALL THINGS HORROR. Reviews, thoughts, and horror talk brought to you by C. Vengeance, with a few appearances by J!
Mutants is a film that is a lot like 28 Days Later, which could be a bad or good thing, depending on your side of the spectrum. There is an infection that is spreading, and it’s fatal. We get no story on where it came from or any of that.
The film focuses on two characters, Sonia, and Marco. Their relationship becomes the focal point of the movie as Marco becomes infected but Sonia doesn’t. As she awaits the arrival of the government for some type of rescue. They seem to become real interested in the fact that she’s been bitten but isn’t infected.
The film has some dramatic, emotional moments, and a fair share of ‘infected’ attacks on people. The film struggles at times when it just becomes a love story for a bit, but it does pick up without ease. Plenty of gore and atmosphere to keep you interested and a few surprises to keep you pulled in. Worth a watch for sure.

Strippers vs Zombies 
A werewolf dies in a strip club and it’s up to the strippers to prepare themselves for the next full moon and get ready for the werewolves that will seek out vengeance.
The cast is pretty decent with a few known actors/actresses including a cameo from Robert Englund, but his is very short. There’s some ‘battle scenes’ but they aren’t as lengthy as they could be. Considering the casting the acting doesn’t live up to anything special.
The plot lacks direction due to many subplots during the film, but is it enjoyable? Yes. Is it funny? For the most part. Strippers vs Werewolves is as serious as the title is. The ending was fun though, plenty of babes, some bad jokes which makes it even funnier, and an overall decent watch to kill some time. It does have moments when it picks up, some parts did tend to drag.

Nude Nuns With Big Guns – 
When Sarah becomes a nun she becomes drugged up, abused, used, and eventually taken to become a prostitute/stripper. One day she is beaten almost to a pulp by the reverend that pretty much put her there, she is saved by her pimp, and escorted out by a doctor. She tells the doctor that she spoke to God, and he told her to kill everyone in her way from seeking vengeance.
This flick is violent, a lot of nudity, some funny scenes, bloody as hell, a lot of nudity, some random lesbian scenes, sex scenes, and so much violence. Sister Sarah goes from church to church, freeing nuns that are being treated as she was. She executes the priests involved in the drugs and abuse towards nuns.
One of the head priest hires a motorcycle gang to take care of the nun, that’s when they realize they have made a grave mistake. Who do you pray to when the one coming after you is killing in the name of God?
This movie is fun, violent, and pure sleazy fun. The main villain, Chavo, is as greasy, and sleazy as you could get! This is a very fun exploitation flick, a little over the top, but that’s the fun right? You won’t like this if you’re not into a lot of blood, boobs, and revenge. But if you’re into those things, watch it! You won’t be getting anything super original, but you will watch something entertaining.

In a remote bar, a man comes storming in, warning the locals to lock up the bar because monsters are coming. No one believes him until he is torn apart by these hideous, gruesome creatures, with some really gnarly looking teeth. After seeing him get devoured, the bar folk must find a way to fight these ferocious monsters.
Now before you get all upset and think this is just another lame monster movie, think again. I love this movie, it’s very cliche, it pokes fun of a lot of other movies, and it’s a bloody gorefest. The acting is better than expected, there’s some brief nudity, but there’s enough blood here to flood a river.
Right towards the end there’s a huge showdown between these bad monsters, and these bad ass ladies. The cinematography is incredible, there’s blood galore, scenes that will have you rolling, and maybe even make you feel a little squeamish. Overall, it’s all done in good fashion, and did I mention all of the gory factors? There’s not much to the plot, but in this case simple is better, once things start rolling you’re in for a hell of a ride.
If you haven’t seen this, please do! If you’re iffy on it, but liked Wrong Turn you will enjoy this flick.

Bloodlust Zombies (2011)
An accidental spill in a weapons manufacturing building causes the alarm to go off, which locks whoever is in the building inside until it overrides.
The thing that was spilled was a chemical weapon that causes those infected by it to become bloodthirsty killers. Sounds decent right? That’s pretty much where it ends.
The acting was horrible, unfortunately a porn star wasn’t enough to save this flick. The zombies were worthless, they look horrible, and the blood seems so minimal. Nothing really happens besides some sex, and people chasing around other people.
Even for a bad movie this wasn’t as enjoyable as I wanted it to be. The whole thing was pretty dull, really lacked good looking zombies, lacked good zombie attacks, the acting was just as bad as the dialogue between everyone.

Sorority House Massacre (1986)
After Beth’s aunt dies she moves into a sorority house. There she starts having weird dreams, almost deja vu like, the dreams take place in the house she’s in now but it looks a little different and it has different people living there. The dreams also involve a brutal murder of a family.
Some of the girls leave for the weekend but some stay behind. Meanwhile a killer who killed a family a few years goes back home to finish the job, and Beth can see it already. She soon finds out that she has a connection to the psychopath.
This is a typical 80’s slasher flick, even has a Halloween feel to it, so the plot isn’t anything fresh or new, even for the time it was released. But is it a good movie? If you like slasher films then you’ll love this flick.
Plenty of sex, cheesy characters, a knife wielding psycho, and bodies everywhere. The film is predictable as hell, but still a fun time. There’s a few good death scenes but nothing extraordinary, still a solid watch!

Young Victor Frankenstein, loves film making, and his dog Sparky. After Sparky meets his untimely death Victor’s teacher, Mr. Rzykruski (one of the best characters in the movie) shows the class how electricity can bring the dead to life. The townspeople demand that Mr. Rzykruski drop down from teaching due to his unorthodox ways of teaching. Victor attempts to try bring Sparky back to life by digging up his grave and using a lightning storm.
When Victor’s classmates find out about him bringing back the dead they try to steal his formula and they too try to bring their dead pets back to life. Sadly, when their pets come back to life they aren’t exactly the friendliest or the happiest as they come back from the dead to bring havoc to their quiet little town.
I’m not the biggest Tim Burton fan, and I’m sure most of can agree his past few films haven’t made the cut. I was weary at first to watch this, but it is October and it seemed like a perfect time.
I loved this movie, everything just fit together. Burton managed to not only put together a very good, and cute story of Frankenstein but with other famous monsters thrown in the mix. With a tribute to Frankenstein, the mummy, Dracula, werewolf, and even Godzilla. Yep, Godzilla.
The film is shot in black and white and that only adds to the old school aspect of it. With a group of famous monsters trying to destroy the town it’s up to Victor, and Sparky to save the day. The characters were all a lot of fun, some more than others, but the film was definitely not boring. A dash of humor, a sprinkle of nostalgia, a little puppy love, and a lot fun.
Not really much to talk about when it comes to what I didn’t like about it, I wasn’t expecting much to begin with and I was pleasantly surprised. You can count this one as one of Burton’s good films.

The Woman In Black 
The Woman In Black is a ghost story about a woman [she wears black] that is said to haunt a local village. If anyone sees the woman in black she will take the life of a child, since her child went missing and was never found she haunts the village by taking the lives of children so everyone else can feel her pain.
Arthur, a lawyer must leave his son behind so he can travel a few cities over to file paper work for some deceased woman. When he arrives the town folk are everything but friendly, they tell him to leave and never come back. Arthur refuses and decides to stay, when he arrives at the woman’s house the fog is thick, and he can only be there for so long before the tide comes in.
Arthur starts hearing noises in the house and has even seen a woman. The next day the curse is proven once more as a child dies, the towns people look at Arthur as he’s to blame. Destined to find the truth behind the woman’s son, and the reason why children seem to die when this ghostly figure is seen.
The plot isn’t the most original for a ghost story, and the ghost looked laughable at times. There was a few scenes that turned out pretty well, seeing a ghostly woman in the back while a child dies has it’s eerie elements. What stood out for me in this was the way the film was shot, the location looked perfect, a shady house in a location with numerous graves, fog that seems never disappear, and a marsh that might have something more than mud in it. There were some decent scares in this one, but nothing that stood over the top.
The ending was almost a surprise but it was a little too happy for me. The CGI was tolerable, but the way the film was shot looked awesome. If you’re looking for a decent ghost flick definitely give this a try! Don’t expect anything crazy or anything new being brought to the table, but the movie is a solid watch. Some death scenes are better than others, nothing too gruesome though, sadly. There are a few cool ones, a triple suicide that gets the film rolling, and an awesome death involving fire.

LAKE MUNGO 
Following the death of 16 year old Alice, who drowned, her family must face the struggles of trying to overcome the fact that she’s dead, and are faced with the thought that their house may be haunted by her.
The film is half interview, and half reenactments. I’ve heard a ton of good things regarding this flick, so needless to say I was really excited for it.
The family starts noticing strange occurrences in the house, the mother even goes as far as contacting a medium hoping to find out the truth about her daughter. As the family tries to get more answers about Alice they soon found out that Alice might have been living a secret life.
Other than a twist, and a little deception the film doesn’t have much to offer. I was reading on this before I even watched it, I saw reviews that were giving this a 10/10, 5/5, and so on, so forth. I don’t know how a film like this can be a 10/10, the film is definitely sad, and you do feel for the family. I was expecting some sort of ghost movie, not over an hour of people talking in front of a camera with a few flash backs.
The little twist was enough to keep me watching, but it wasn’t enough to tell everyone I know to check it out. The twist was awesome, but they never continued with it. Other than that the film seemed to drag, the characters were dull at times. The few things we learn about Alice are quite interesting, the main objective of the film wasn’t to scare anyone but to make the audience feel for the family. It certainly does that, although the delivery could have been a lot better.
A ghost is seen, but that becomes more of awhat the fuck…then an actual scare. If you want to watch a flick that will make you feel sorry for a family, and if you wanna see how a family goes through the mourning process then check this out. If you read the summary of this movie, you won’t be getting a ghost story.
