The Dead Pit

The Dead Pit

While I’m not afraid of hospitals or doctors, I can understand why some people are.  You always hear about people who go in for routine surgery and get things left in them, or they get the wrong leg removed or some other horrific thing happens to you in the doctor’s care.  Just think though, it could be worse.  You could be committed to a psychological hospital against your will, and have no idea when you’re getting out.  On top of that, you could then get operated on by a crazy psychology surgeon (I didn’t even know they had surgeons in psychiatric hospitals) who’s obsessed with digging people’s brains out to see what makes them crazy.  I would have thought that would be an indication that you were in fact crazy yourself, but I’m not a professional.

Dead Snow

I’ve reviewed movies about Nazi Zombies before – the ill conceived “Shock Waves“, and “War of the Dead” come to mind, so it’s not like it’s a new concept (even Zombie Lake used the idea.)   It’s an idea that you would think would have wild success.  Just mention the ideas of Nazis and zombies in the same sentence and you pique the interest of a lot of horror fans.  So, if this is such a great combination of two gruesome archetypes, why did it take until 2009’s Død snø (aka Dead Snow) to make a film utilizing Nazi Zombies to this degree of goodness?

Brain Damage

Every so often, a movie comes along that makes you utter three letters… Maybe it’s the movie that makes you say that is one that features an Indonesian Mr. T.  Perhaps it’s a movie where white stuff comes out of the ground and the people who discover it decide to package and sell it so it can take over the planet.  Heck, maybe it’s about a cyborg who has to do something that isn’t really clear throughout the entire movie, arm wrestles truckers from the future, and just figures out that he’s probably just a dumb cyborg after all.  Those three letters?  W – T – F.  The movie this time?  Brain Damage – what the fu…
