Wes Craven is considered one of the “Masters of Horror”, and his pedigree certainly lives up to that title. With films like Last House on the Left, and the A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream (he didn’t write Scream, only directed) series under his belt, you can almost expect any film bearing his name will surely be good, and at the very least entertaining. With all that in mind, let’s take a look at his 1989 film Shocker
When vacationing in the backwoods, make sure you listen to the locals. Maybe they know about which greasy spoon has the best breakfast, where the best swimming hole is at, and that you shouldn’t perform any rituals that might bring up ancient dangerous spirits. Unfortunately, newly dating couple Tom and Lisa, along with their friends Simone and Sam didn’t take that advice and decided to test out their knowledge of witchcraft in the wrong town.
As I get older, I realize the importance of getting healthy and keeping in shape. When looking for a gym or health spa, you want to look for the quality of the staff, equipment, and the extra services that they provide. The last thing you’ll probably think to check out is to see if the place is haunted. That’s the problem that they’re having at the Starbody Health Spa. People are getting hurt and it’s either ghosts that are hurting the patrons, or the high tech computer system that controls everything is becoming self aware and taking out all the paying customers. Or… They may just be dealing with a Witch Bitch.
I can honestly say I am not a huge fan of remakes. They very rarely turn out as good as the original. But lets face it, even new Hollywood stories aren’t too good now days. So I thought rather than watching the remake of The Fog I would take a peek at the classic by John Carpenter. For whatever reason I had never seen this movie, but I got a few recommendations that it is one I can’t miss. And hell, Carpenter’s The Thing was freaky as anything I’ve ever seen so why not give it a shot.
