3 From Hell (2019)

3 From Hell is the Sequel to The Devils Reject’s and picks up right where that movie left off. The opening is about the trial that takes place about a year after these three miraculously survive and is sentenced to life in prison for multiple counts of murder and numerous other things.

After this, we get bounced to 10 years into the future so we can see a documentary being made. We see how they are all doing, Captain Spaulding has lost a lot of weight for example and Baby is quite honestly frigging nuts, like totally off the deep end insane. Otis, however, is still just Otis.

Speaking of Otis, we need someone to escape to get this movie going and he will be the one to do it. After he murders a bunch of guards and other prisoners the plot to try and free Baby will come into full swing. Baby meanwhile has her own issues with a prison guard named Greta. It is safe to say the two don’t get along. Baby breaks her nose at her parole hearing and Greta tries to have Baby murdered.

This movie is getting pretty mixed reviews and honestly, I don’t see why. The story is solid and the acting is great. Baby nails her role perfectly and Otis is fantastic. I don’t want to give to much away about the story because there are a few bits I didn’t see coming and having seen it as a double feature with The Devil’s Reject made me remember how much I enjoyed the series as a whole. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Devil’s Rejects (2005)

A Rob Zombie movie and a direct sequel to House of 1000 Corpses is the store of the Firefly family and their house being raided by the police. After a grand shootout, mama firefly is caught, a man is dead and Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie) and Otis (Bill Moseley) are on the run.

They quickly call their father, Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig) to meet up at a motel before finding a more permanent safe haven, as they are on the run from Sheriff Wydell (William Forsythe)

The movie takes place in basically stages, as Baby and Otis need a motel room and kidnap a group and essentially torture and murder them. The scene is pretty messed up and brutal and really gets the point across about how messed up these 2 really are.

There is also a scene were Spaulding’s truck runs out of gas so he steals a car, so he punches out a woman and threatens to murder a child if when he comes back he doesn’t have a good reason as to why clowns don’t make him laugh.

The movie is honestly quite messed up and demented and contains one of my favorite movie quotes of all time. It is definitely worth checking out, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.  Also, fair warning, the video below is definitely R rated.

Dan Aykroyd Joins New Ghostbusters Movie

As reported by ScreenRant Dan Aykroyd has Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver in the Ghostbusters movie set for 2020. The movie has been said to really focus less on the old stars from the first two movies and more on a new generation of busters.  There is however no word on whether or not Bill Fucking Murray (Yes his name should always be said that way) will be returning to his role, tho hopes are high that he will after he recently said he was open to the idea of returning.

Truth be told I don’t have high hopes for this movie. Nothing against these legends, it has just been so long since the 2nd one that I feel a third is essentially a nostalgia cash-grab similar to my thoughts on Top Gun Maverick Trailer. However, I will be open-minded to see what happens. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Evil Dead 2 (1987)

Evil Dead 2 has been a pretty debated movie believe it or not. It all comes down to the opening of the movie. It starts with Ash back in the same cabin, with an entirely different group of people. Found the same book, but the reading happened in a different place. This has lead to the debate of is it a remake or a sequel?

The answer is actually quite interesting. The short answer, by the way, a remake and sequel simultaneously.  See as it turns out they couldn’t get the rights to their own movie. The way around this was when they made Evil Dead 2 they opened with a rehash of the last movie, and changed it. The same general idea, different actors (except Bruce still plays Ash)

Interestingly enough they did it in such a way that if you skip that intro and pick up where the first movie left off and just play Evil Dead 2 from where the entity hits Ash at the end of Evil Dead (1981) it actually makes perfect sense.

This one, however, is a bit different. It starts with Ash being possessed by an evil as the sun comes up, which pushes it away.  Meanwhile, we discover that the owners of this cabin are about to have visitors that found more of the book of the dead. These pages are being brought to the cabin so they can be read by the owner that Ash discovered mysteriously disappeared.

Like the first movie the charm of this cult classic is that the effects, story, and acting are all about as cheesy as they come. They aren’t cheesy in a bad way tho, the whole thing is entertaining. The best part is Bruce Campbell however, he truly seems to love the role and his fans.

As the movie goes on and everyone meets up at the cabin, we discover the older couple is trapped in the basement, dead and possessed by evil. This evil wants to kill everyone in the cabin and take their souls, while Ash is determined to survive and the new pages of the book are the way to do this. I won’t spoil the ending but I will encourage you all to see it. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Evil Dead (1981)

Bruce Cambell as Ash Williams. (check out @torstenvblog coverage Evil Dead ) This is one of those cult classics that most people have either seen and love or seen and hate. I have seen it and love it. What is not to love tho? The special effects are cheesy as hell, the story is almost nonsensical to the point of hilarity and I dare you to watch this and not love Ash.

The movie starts off with our group going to an old log cabin for a weekend getaway. During this night of fun, they discover a book in a basement. Now, most people would be smart enough to not read from the book with a face on human skin in a creepy language but these idiots do exactly that. This releases an evil entity that goes on a killing spree and the dead come back to life.

The movie is on Hulu and is a must-see if you are a horror fan. It resulted in multiple sequels and a TV series and even a game. It can’t be bad to get that kind of results right? Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

A Guy Thing (2003)

A Guy Thing is a 2003 romantic comedy that did not do well in the reviews and admittedly, I get it. The movie is fun, the acting was great but all in all the movie itself is pretty mundane. The movie is pretty standard, mangoes to a bachelor party, man wakes up with dancer, man hides it from the soon to be wife. Said man finds out dancer is soon to be wifes cousin.

There are some fun moments of course, and Jason Lee and Julia Stiles are always a joy to watch and they have some great chemistry. The issue is the script is just pretty dull and the story itself is just boring. I love the actors in this movie, some of my favorite movies involve them. This movie however just wasn’t all that enjoyable to me.

I won’t say don’t watch this movie, many of you will probably enjoy it. I simply did not, and that made me pretty sad. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

St. Agatha (2018)

This is another one of those movies I regret watching. Mary who is pregnant runs away to a convent for help in the 1950s. These nuns, however, are psychotic. They are abusive, fanatical and even worse, those aren’t their worst traits.

The movie is also about an hour and 25 minutes of pure boredom followed by 20 minutes of an interesting horror movie. Aside from that, it is just a long slow ride to find out pretty much exactly what you suspected the entire time anyway. There aren’t any real twist and turns or surprises to be found here.

That isn’t to say the movie is purely bad. The acting is well done and as far as period pieces go it was well done, even the telephone they show looks like it was ripped right out of the time period. The problem is the story itself is just honestly, not fun to watch.

After all this tho I can honestly say I won’t deter you guys from watching the movie. This is one of those films I feel like just because I don’t like it doesn’t mean you guys won’t. So give it a shot, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
