5/10: Some good moments, some not...
Sunday, June 21, 2009

Some good moments, some not so good moments. Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer starts as a young Jack Brooks (Evan Gilchrist) witnesses the murder of his younger sister, mother & Father by some Werewolf type monster. Jump forward many years later & Jack Brooks (Trevor Matthews) is now a lowly plumber in his mid twenties with a pretty but irritating girlfriend Eve (Rachel Skarsten) & a very bad temper. While at night college chemistry Professor Gordon Crowley (Robert Englund) ask's Jack to take a look at at his plumbing at his new house which isn't working properly. While at home that night Professor Crowley is possessed by the black heart of an ancient demon & starts to undergo a transformation into a grotesque monster who decides to terrorise Crowley's pupils. Jack steps up to the plate & takes charge of the situation & becomes Jack Brooks, Monster Slayer as he tries to stop the demon...This Canadian production was co-written & directed by John...

4/10: Like the failed pilot for...
Thursday, December 2, 2010

Like the failed pilot for bad knock off of an Evil Dead TV show I've seen a lot of movies that were pretty good right up until an awful ending. Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer is the first one I've ever seen where the ending is pretty good, but everything up until that sucked really hard.Jack Brooks (Trevor Matthews) is a plumber with an anger management problem. His family was killed by a monster in the woods when Jack was a boy and it's left him with a lot of undirected rage. Jack is seeing a counselor about his emotional problems. He's also got an incredibly naggy girlfriend and is taking a night school science class. Jack's professor (Robert Englund) gets possessed by a demon and after the film fiddles around for a looooong time with Englund chewing up the scenery, Jack eventually has to save his classmates from their demonic instructor and discover his...

1/10: not amusing and the photo...
Sunday, April 12, 2009

not amusing and the photo on the box is a photoshop deal! it's embarrassing I had like 3 minutes on my way to a job to stop at the video store and it was 2 for 1 night and I was really intrigued by the half nekkid pic of the 'star'. I guess this film shows what the new york film school and sir daddy's fortune - judging by the bio of this clown in the lead - can do for you and you and you cause that's about what we have here and in addition a photoshopped pic of the lead "actor" with someone else's body in a still image that doesn't happen anywhere in the movie. it's weird cause in so many ways it had money thrown at it obviously low budget money buckets but from the outset when all the extras are laughing in their scene of terror it doesn't bode well...

8/10: They're coming to get...
Monday, May 25, 2009

They're coming to get you, ha ha ho ho hee hee. Sometimes a movie is so bad it's good. How best to explain that statement? Yea, the dialogue was bad at times, but that's what made it good. We expected it to be cheesy, and it worked. Then we have our intrepid hero, cast of monster(s), annoying characters who you hope get killed (eaten) early on so that they are out of the way, etc. What I think a lot of people missed, well those that did not like the movie, was how funny this movie truly is. Especially how perfect Robert Englund is in this part. The man is great at subtle humor and the beginning scenes as the somewhat befuddled science teacher was spot on (reminded me of a chem teacher I had eons ago). The whiny girlfriend was perfect as well, especially at the end when she began to sound like some yippy...

3/10: Can't scare me with...
Friday, May 29, 2015

Can't scare me with dialog How difficult can it really be to make a horror movie? "Ah, but that is why so many bad horror movies are made", you say, "because everyone thinks it will be easy." Well plot-wise, it has to be easy. Where most horror fails is not in the plot, the make-up, or even the casting because you can get away with inexperienced actors if you give them something to do. You cannot scare or horrify people with mountains of dialog. Don't tell me the history of the evil, show me. Don't explain the nature of the evil in tedious detail, show me. Or better yet, don't explain anything and just keep horrible things happening. Don't give inexperienced actors pages and pages of dialog, just keep them moving, running, screaming, chopping, crying, dying; anything except talking. JBMS spends far too much of the movie developing a complicated back story about...
