Saturday Night Horror Fest

Has it been a couple of weeks since I posted the movie list? Yep, it has. Why? Because I’ve been busy and writing reviews for three movies my way can take a while. So I’m changing things up a bit. Again.

Don’t you just love the way I keep you on your toes?

But you’ll have to wait for me to unveil my latest and bestest evil plan.

For now, here’s what we watched yesterday.

Critters

Hellraiser

Masters of Horror: Fair Haired Child

Out of them all, I probably enjoyed the episode from Masters of Horror best. Hellraiser is a classic and Critters is just silly–in a good way, at times. But Fair Haired Child certainly went farther than a lot of horror movies I’ve seen lately.

The plot might seem conventional. Anton and Julia, parents to a beautiful “fair-haired” boy, were devastated when he died by drowning–on his fifteenth birthday. To soothe their pain, they make a deal with the Devil, presumably, to sacrifice 12 children to a demon, one at a time, once a year. On Johnny’s birthday.

Their last sacrifice is the first and only girl they offer to the demon playing dress-up in Johnny’s skin. She proves to be tougher than she first appeared.

The demon in the film is pretty cool. Does some wicked herky-jerky moving and has the biggest skull I’ve seen on a demon–this sized, anyway. At the end though, that’s where the movie gets you. My horror buddies and I were pleasantly surprised and satisfied by the conclusion.

If you’ve got an hour free, check this one out.
