I finally got to see the latest Joe Dante movie last night! Needless to say “The Hole” was everything I was hoping for it to be and more! The only problem is that this great little movie hasn’t been released here in the USA yet-so I found a copy of it on Ebay, and import copy to be more precise. It has been released abroad in 3-D in theaters but has yet to hit the states-and I have been wondering if it will indeed ever make it to theaters?
Well I will tell you this much-it’s exactly what you want out of a Joe Dante flick-just a lot of great fun! A horror movie that’s a throw back to old classics like Gremlins, Poltergeist and The Gate! Continue reading
Well it was my birthday recently and I decided it was time to add some new gems to my dvd collection! So these here movies are recommendations for every dork’s collection! So let’s not waste any time here, these are what I scored! All of these are available on dvd-though you may have to do a little searching around…
First up is Neon Maniacs-I will tell you right off the bat this movie is BAD! But bad in a very good way! As you can tell from the trailer this one has got all the goods for a terribly bad good 80’s horror flick!
Next I got Return to Oz Continue reading
I am pumped for Joe Dante’s new upcoming movie, The Hole. As you may already know Joe Dante was responsible for such classics as Gremlins, The Howling, Innerspace, The Explorers and horror classic Pirahna (now being remade) in the late 70’s. Most recently I rewatched “The Burbs” which was another great movie he helmed as well as Twilight Zone: The Movie. His movies always have that almost family friendly 80’s quality to them, even his later “horror” films and I mean that in a very good way. A feel that you don’t find so much in modern cinema anymore. Well his next movie is supposed to have that old school feel to it. He compared it in recent interviews to the 80’s classic “The Gate” which is one of my all time favs. He also stated the film will be in 3-D and will deliver some classic chills. I personally would love to have that feeling again I had when I first saw Gremlins. I have a feeling this film is going to be ALOT of fun…check out this Interview with Joe as he gives a little more insight on this family friendly horror movie:
