Last weekend I went to see Ouija to the cinema. You know I love horror movies and I was very excited to see this one. The trailer was good so I had good expectations when I went to see it. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed. I know I shouldn’t expect much from horror movies today, but at least they should have one big scare. This one didn’t.
It wasn’t scary at all, all the characters were just stupid and though the story had great potential it wasn’t well developed. At least in my opinion, they could’ve done much better with the material they had. Continue reading →
I’m not a big fan of Spanish cinema, but I love horror movies and this saga is amazing!! I can’t believe it’s already been 7 years since the first movie came out and scared the shit out of everyone from Spain and many countries. It was so successful that it even had a Hollywood remake called Quarantine. I always prefer the American versions of horror movies, like The Grudge or The Ring, but in this case I really recommend you to watch the original version!
The second movie wasn’t as good as the first one, but did explain lots of things and why everything happened. It also had a very unexpected ending so it was really good too. Then the third one was an awesome action/zombie-killing movie but it lost the essence of the first two movies so I wouldn’t count it as part of the saga. I really loved it though! Continue reading →
I really like Halloween, but I don’t get why people celebrate it here in Spain. It’s not a Spanish tradition, it’s just an excuse to get drunk and dress up. In Canary Islands we already have Carnaval to do that and to be honest it’s one of the best festivities we have!!
Like I said I really like Halloween and I like watching all the decorations in movies and TV shows, the costumes that celebrities wear and all that stuff, I like to watch it as an outsider and not celebrating it because it’s not part of my culture. So, unlike many others I prefer staying at home and watch horror movies. Continue reading →
Yesterday I read an article about the most memorable deaths in Quentin Tarantino movies online. I really liked it and it inspired me to do this list of horror movie iconic deaths in perfect timing for Halloween. I chose the scenes that are most memorable from some of the most iconic horror movies of all time as well as some deaths that really shocked me from some less known or underrated movies.
I decided to choose only one death per movie or franchise, otherwise Final Destination would take all spots on the list, haha. Some of these horror movies were really bad, but I think that’s a positive thing for me, I really like bad horror movies, they’re very very entertaining. Continue reading →
I just watched The Purge: Anarchy and I have some mixed feeling about it. I really liked the first movie, but there was something missing on it. I think the idea of this movies is excellent and has a lot of potential. In this one they exploited that potential a little bit more and gave more depth to the plot and we finally get to see what happens to regular people and not only the rich ones.
I love that we get to see the differences between social classes and how they spend the Purge. I also liked how they reflect today’s society in this alternative universe and how these new Founders of the USA use this supposedly “purifying” night to their own benefit getting rid of the poor people.
