The Best Horror Movie Sequels

0

This week we’ve got three new movies this week, American Ultra, Hitman: Agent 47 and Sinister 2. Nobody went and saw American Ultra, but I thought it looked really good and Sean had a lot of fun watching it. Hitman: Agent 47 was a lazy action movie and Sinister 2 was a lazy horror film. These two movies appear to be cash grabs and that’s just disappointing. The first Hitman movie wasn’t very good or successful so we’re not sure why they made a sequel, but Sinister was a solid horror film. It’s among one of the most profitable films of all time, so why not make a sequel? So they did.

Our Top Five this week is Top 5 horror sequels. We talk about Dawn of the Dead, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, Friday the 13th Part 2, Basket Case 2, It’s Alive 2, The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween 2, Amityville Horror 2, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows, Phantasm 2, Bride of Frankenstein, The Decent 2, Prometheus, Silence of the Lambs, Aliens.

Our Undisputed Classic is Carnival of Souls. It’s a movie that holds up largely due to the atmosphere it creates. The story itself doesn’t hold up but that’s because of movies like The Sixth Sense. There are so many twists in movies today that you can’t look back at a movie from 1962 and not figure out the twist within two minutes of this movie starting. That doesn’t make the movie bad, because it’s a fantastic movie.

In 1985 Teen Wolf, Better Off Dead, Gojira, Warning Signs, The Protector

Three Middle Aged Men Talk Insurgent

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. We start the podcast off doing a recap of round two of our March Movie Madness tournament. In the news this week Joseph Gordon-Levitt will produce and star in a “Fraggle Rock” Movie. Chris Rock is penning a sequel to “Top Five.” South Korea is going to drop copies of “The Interview” into North Korea.

There’s a new “Divergent” movie out called “Insurgent.” As three thirty something year old males we hated it…well only Sean saw it but Josh and I have no interest in it. Josh is more interested in the next fan fiction story that’ll turn into the next mom sex book.

Sean insists that Sean Penn could kick my ass…he’s probably right. “The Gunman” is the new Sean Penn movie and it’s as Josh called it, a movie. If you’re going to the movie for Idris Elba, stay home, he’s in it for three movies. Then there is a religious movie called “Do You Believe” that Sean bought. It’s not the typical pandering piece of crap that keeps coming out every month. It’s an honest movie that is a little convenient, but it’s very cool about showing why somebody would have faith.

Our Undisputed Classic is the Robert Redford film “Three Days of the Condor.” This movie is a great, smart CIA thriller. It’s scary how accurate this movie ended up being. It is about as perfect as a CIA spy thriller can get.

1985 – The Last Dragon, Friday the 13th Part 5, Porky’s Revenge, and Baby Secret of the Lost Legend.
