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

Welcome to the bonus I Hate Critics Movie Review podcast. This episode I got to chat with the star of “The Devil’s Rejects” Diamond Dallas Page. He’s got a new movie coming out called “The Resurrection of Jake Roberts.” Diamond Dallas Page took Jake “The Snake” Roberts under his wing…moved him into his house and helped him change his life. During the process Scott Hall’s life was changed in similar fashion and hundreds of thousands of people around the world including me.
We don’t just talk about DDP Yoga and “The Resurrection of Jake the Snake,” we also talk about other movies including “Beyond the Mat,” “Food Inc,” “Fed Up,” “Genetic Roulette,” Kevin Smith’s “Red State,” and of course Rob Zombie’s “The Devil’s Rejects. Dallas explains to essentially Sean why it’s ok to enjoy “The Devil’s Rejects.”
Thanks for listening to the I Hate Critics Bonus Horror Podcast. We didn’t know for sure if we were going to do another Halloween podcast but when a listener from New Mexico went to www.ihatecritics.net and clicked on the Amazon link to support the podcast and bought us a horror movies four pack that included the film “Sssssss.” None of us had seen this movie and the listener Jason thought we’d get a kick out of it. It took us several months, but we did finally watch it and it gave us a reason to do another bonus horror pod.
Sean and I watched “Sssssss” together and Jason was right, we got a kick out of it. In fact that night Sean and I watched “Sssssss” followed by the original “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and it made for one of my most fun nights doing the podcast, if only Josh were there. “Sssssss” is so much fun and so bad…so so perfectly bad that it really should be seen by all.
For whatever reason Sean said we should all watch “Hellraiser.” In hindsight I think he wishes he kept his mouth shut. Josh for whatever reason watched the first four “Hellraiser” films, that parts not on the podcast.
Then I decided to lay down the gauntlet for Josh. Sean and I are on polar opposite positions on the film “The Devil’s Rejects.” I think it’s a masterpiece and Sean not only doesn’t get the point but thinks Rob Zombie should be arrested for having made it. Additionally there is the argument over Eli Roth. I don’t necessarily love his movies, but i like him and I think he’s perfectly sane. Josh knows who both Eli Roth and Rob Zombie are, but hasn’t seen each of their “best” movies. So we made Josh watch “Hostel” and “The Devil’s Rejects” in the same week (and four “Hellraiser” movies, but that’s on him).
Josh sort of sided with me while still trying to play devil’s advocate. I completely disagree with Sean but at the same time can’t answer his questions. Why is this entertaining? I don’t know, but it’s an experience, it pulls emotions out of me and I like when a movie can do that. Sure you have to take a shower when you finish watching these movies, but that’s neither here nor there.
Then there is “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” After revisiting that movie I can hands down say it’s my favorite horror film. All of the shitty horror movies that came after this movie has really ruined it’s reputation. I’d seen it before and I remember liking it, but I’m just used to all the characters being idiots and the bad guy being super human. This movie is real, it’s stylish, it’s a perfect horror movie. The most terrifying scene in all of the movies that we talked about on this podcast came from “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” when virtually nothing was happening.
Welcome to The I Hate Critics. It’s award season so lets talk about the comedy of the year “Hercules.” “Hercules” should have advertised itself as a comedy. This is a wanna bee “300” with no fun. “Lone Survivor” took a real life story and took it a little too “Ramboy.” Then Bob goes on to wonder what every movie would look like if Peter Berg directed it.
Speaking of disappointment, “August: Osage County.” It’s probably good on the stage, but not so much on the screen. Sean’s top two movies of the year are “Her” and “Inside Llewyn Davis.” Josh and I can’t argue with him. Both movies are award worthy. We had such a good time talking about these two films.
Our undisputed classic is “Amelie.” This is a romantic comedy that is also an art film. Everybody I know that has seen this loves this movie and it surprises me that they love this movie, but it really is that good.
This week in 1984 a soft-core porn named “Hot Dog…The Movie.” There was a wet t-shirt contest in it. Our contest this week is to come up with a movie that made it to the theater that includes a wet t shirt contest since “Real Cancun” not including “Piranha 3D.”
