I think it’s safe to say that the goal of this website is to find some of the funniest, off the wall, crazy, “holy shit, what did I just watch” movies out there. Sometimes you come across great stuff, like Undefeatable, The Stabilizer or The Room, and then sometimes you find horrible crap like Cocaine Cowboys, Zombie Vs. Ninja or Attack of the Slime People. And then… there’s Birdemic. Let’s take a look at our last movie of 31 Days of Horror, shall we?
Chances are you know what/who Bubba is – some Southern guy, a redneck, trailer trash, you get the picture. But what about Ho-Tep? I bet you didn’t know it was a descendant of the 17th Egyptian Dynasties. Well I didn’t know that either until a few hours ago. I bet you also thought that Elvis died of a heart-attack, and that JFK was killed in Dallas by Lee Harvey Oswald. I also would bet that you had no idea all those things could be thrown into a movie, and that said movie would answer the age old question: “Is there finally and really anything to life other than food, shit, and sex?” – Elvis
Every now and then, especially during election years, certain topics come to light, such as, separation of church and state, immigration, racism and abortion. While the endless blah blah blahing from either side is enough to make my ears bleed, I thought it was time to get a different perspective.. So that got me thinking, hmm, how would forces of evil deal with these social issues? They already have a lot of issues with separation of church and state because they’re always getting exorcised or banished, immigration and racism are not new to them either, with civilians always scolding them, “not in my neighborhood”. That leaves abortion. So imagine my delight when I saw this movie sitting on the video rental shelf!
When I saw Machete in the theater back in August they played a metric ass ton of trailers, they always do! After the trailers they played their little theater introduction and then low and behold, another trailer. This one was a little different though, it had that Grindhouse feel to it just like Machete a few years back. It showed a monster of a man, the so-called new icon in horror Victor Crowley, absolutely destroying a bunch of people who had no idea that death stood right around the corner. I looked at my friend and said “it’s a shame that’s just a fake trailer, Hatchet 2 looks like it would be great!” But why did they skip right to number 2, where was the original. A few weeks later I saw a listing for Hatchet 2 at that same theater, it was real… even though it only lasted a week on the big screen! So I had to seek out Hatchet and find out what all the hype was about.
