These are the first signs that Halloween is fast approaching and along with it, a bushel of extremely scary or extremely cheesy horror movies. Of course this time of the year also marks the release of yet another Halloween Movie. Halloween II was released August 28, but some theatres are re-releasing it to the big screen in time for the holiday season. I would recommend just catching this one in HBO if I were you. Michael Myers should probably just die already. I think that this movie has been remade a few too many times, with not many changes to the plot. It’s time to let this one go, people. Yes ladies and gentlemen, they have made another Saw movie. I guess that we just can’t get enough blood and gore. Saw VI is just another film in a long line of possibly the most successful horror movie series ever made. The latest Saw promises as much blood and gore as it’s predecessors. I’m sure that this movie will not be for the squeamish or faint of heart if it is anything like the rest. Megan Fox: enough said. Jennifer’s Body was an amazing film that I believe never went out of the way to take itself seriously. It reminded me of the horror films of old. I had flashbacks of Bruce Campbell fighting off skeleton warriors and witches with a chainsaw fastened to his stump. This movie had a good plot, with many B and C list actors. I did love the story behind the release of the demon into Megan Fox’s character. Jennifer is sacrificed to the devil by an up-and-coming band Low Shoulder in an attempt to gain fame. This plan goes horribly awry when instead of being pleased, the demon inhabits Jennifer’s body and feasts on the town’s teens. It was a clever plot, and left me both creeped out and amused. Oh, and did I mention it had Megan Fox in it? Although it’s been done before, Zombieland, is putting a humorous spin on a zombie apocalypse. This movie will either be very original in its approach, or it may be just remaking the famous Shaun of the Dead. With a memorable cast and a humorous plot, this movie has the potential to a have a cult following; or it could just be another movie that you catch playing on Comedy Central everyday. Cirque Du Freak is finally being made into a movie. I have waited to see this story hit the big screen for years. This series is the male answer to Twilight. You will never believe who is playing the dark, mysterious Mr. Crepsley; none other than John C. Reily. That’s right folks, Will Farrell’s bestie is going from a 40-year-old man living with his mom, to a professional racecar driver, to a vampire. And the transition is beautiful. If the movie can even slightly compare with the books, I will be going to see this one several times in theatres.
