Evil Dead (2013) - Another successful remake

Usually nowadays, the remakes of fantastic classic horrors seem to be getting worse, rather than better. In my opinion, all this is down to overpowered and needless CGI. However, I thought the remake of Evil Dead was very imaginative, and rather successful. After reading some reviews, I am rather inquisitive as to why a lot of people are giving it negative reviews. I thought it was fairly similar to The Cabin In The Woods (2012), as there were many fairly related moments and ideas such as the obvious - some friends hanging out in a cabin in the middle of the woods! Also, the 'dead' were awoken through some type of witchcraft by Eric reading the Book of The Dead and similarly in The Cabin In The Woods, Dana reads an old book found in the midst of some old relics, which awakens the dead.

The Purge: Anarchy (2014) - More white-masked strangers roaming the streets

(WARNING - I must warn everyone first by telling you that there may be several spoilers for anyone who has not seen the film as I am reviewing the entire film)
I went to see this sequel to The Purge (2013) last night not expecting anything that great. The first Purge in 2013 was heavily criticised however, not by me. I did enjoy the first film but there were some slight negative aspects to it, and it was too short. I felt that The Purge: Anarchy was a much better production being longer, having a better story in my opinion, and you could expect anything coming! I mean even the scares, some of them came from completely nowhere, from normal talking scenes before the Purge actually commenced. This was a feature I found worked very well, since in the first Purge, every scare was expected because it was so silent.

Interesting thriller - The Others (2001)

Whilst I was on vacation it struck me to see The Others on the television. As far as I can remember, I was sure this was the first horror I had ever watched, and I thought it was terrifying! This is a really interesting, awesome film guys that definitely deserves a review. You may not necessarily find it classified as a 'horror' similarly to Child's Play, however it is another fantastic film that absolutely nails the eerie silenced atmosphere to establish great tension and even some jump scares.

Child's Play (1988) - Got to love Chucky!

I didn't watch this thriller until about 2009, and oh my I was amazed. To have been made in 1988, the film completely exceeded my expectations. Yeah it sounds pretty cool - a wicked little doll (good guy) following his plot to escape his plastic figure body and to take the soul of a poor innocent little child. Sounds pretty nasty too doesn't it? This film, in my opinion, is absolutely remarkable and is most definitely worth a watch! Guys if you haven't seen this film yet then wow, where have you been? What really impressed me was how incredible the voice for the evil little doll Chucky was played by Brad Dourif. His voice is perfect for the role of Chucky - very rough, and extremely nasty. It was very successful in portraying this very small doll into a powerful, frightening little character who you would not want to mess with!

My ghost/paranormal adventures on my holiday!

I would like to firstly apologise for any inconvenience I may have caused whilst I was away on my holiday in Italy. Since the date of my departure (28th June), I have not made a blog post and so I am going to make this as best as possible to make up for the time I was away. Also, I hope I have not lost the support from any of you guys because you provide me with sustained, awesome support which is still clear from my 4000 page views on this blog! So thanks a lot everyone!
Anyway, let me continue developing my blog by telling you about my fantastic, but in some cases spooky holiday and all the strange and if you like 'paranormal' events I believe I encountered. Aside the scary incidents I was involved in, some of the locations in the mountains I visited were beautiful! I was situated in an absolutely remarkable setting in the mountains named 'Boveglio' in the province of 'Lucca'.
