Maniac with Elijah Wood is a movie that is sick and demented...and thoroughly satisfying. The owner of a mannequin shop (Elijah Wood as Frank) has a fetish that has morphed into a lifestyle. Frank started by victimizing his own mother, and continues to develop a camaraderie with beautiful women...women's scalps. Franks is a serial dater of exquisite women. He allows them to begin defiling him and then he swiftly and severely scalps them (a procedure by which he cuts their throats and then utilizes a scalpel to remove their scalp and hair). Faced with tunnel vision, migraine headaches and the insatiable urge to grow his collection, Frank truly is a Maniac (movie).
Written and directed by Matt Orlando, A Resurrection (movie) is a compelling late-adolescent horror film. It never hurts a director's cause to have a veteran actress like Mischa Barton at his disposal. Blending together her considerable beauty and tremendous skills of elocution, Barton makes Orlando's story one that we can all relate to. Adding a tinge or sadness to this production is the fact that A Resurrection (movie) was the late actor Michael Clarke Duncan's last filmed feature film. His role both in life and in the film were tragically cut short. Now, let's get this melancholy show on the road, we have a movie to review!
Kill For Me is far more involved than the standard American horror picture. It is a nice entry into the more adult, collegiate horror genre/scene. Hayley Jones (Tracey Spiridakos) has a troubled past. Her life has been riddled by the death of her mother under suspicious circumstances, and her father is sadistically abusive. Hayley has the agonizing reminders of his bloodlust all over her body. Amanda Rowe (Katie Cassidy) is a college student planning for her future in the legal field. Her desire to enter the field of jurisprudence is one of the most ironic plot points offered by director Michael Greenspan. Amanda also suffers from a history of violence. Her ex-boyfriend is trigger-happy with his fists and is not above resorting to forceful entry (rape) and or strangulation. In Kill For Me, Hayley and Amanda are brought together through a confluence of events that started with the unsolved disappearance of Amanda's best friend and roommate, Natalie Ross (Leah Gibson).
Crush (movie 2013) combines the obsession felt by the villain from Swimfan, with the sense of desperation felt by the unloved in its forbear, The Crush (1993). This teenie-bopper film is about more than simple rejection and superficiality. Crush (movie 2013) is a violent, sadistic, murderous thriller that amplifies the psychology of one crazy Lindsay Lohan-Kim Kardashian love child. Starring Lucas Till and Sarah Bolger, Crush (movie 2013) is one of the best young adult movies churned out in a long time.
Written and directed by Todd Lincoln, The Apparition on DVD and Blu-ray is an harrowing movie. Pairing Twilight’s Ashley Greene with young up-and-comer Sebastian Stan has proven to be a masterstroke. Adding flavor to the brewing horror porridge is Harry Potter’s own Tom Felton (a.k.a Draco Malfoy). The Apparition on DVD and Blu-ray is a blend of traditional horror and the new age paranormal brand of terror. Somewhere in between is a really exciting film starring two talented young actors.
