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.

TDR

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

Our trailers this week are:

The Witch
The Final Girl
Finders Keepers

Back to the Future Turns 30, Magic Mike XXL, Terminator Genisys

0

On this episode of I Hate Critics we’ve got three new movies: Magic Mike XXL, Terminator Genisys, Me & Earl & the Dying Girl. Both Sean and I loved Magic Mike XXL, it was a lot of fun. It kind of makes you want to be a male stripper. The joy they had making this movie comes back off the screen. Shelby and Beth were having fun as well. Me & Earl & the Dying Girl is completely awesome. It’s essentially The Fault in Our Stars done properly. Terminator Genisys is fun but that pisses Josh off because it should be more serious and not fun. I’m paraphrasing because Josh isn’t here to defend himself.

Backtothefuture

Our Undisputed Classic is Donnie Darko. In sticking with our time travel theme (not our male stripper theme) we went with Donnie Darko and it’s a movie that is just amazing and if you mix the book in with it is even better.

In 1985 Back to the Future came out. The biggest movie of 1985. $200 million in 1985, that’s amazing.

Our trailers this week are:

Jobs
Jenny’s Wedding
Snowden
Secret in their Eyes
Creed
