Hansel and Gretal: Witch Hunters review

With Kount Kreepy on vacation at some nice island somewhere I guess it's up to me to keep with hearth fire burning on this here blog.

Hansel and Gretel With Hunters is brought to us from the same guy who did Dead Snow ,Thomas Wirkola, (and upcoming Dead Snow:War of the Dead) as the writer and director.

 This movie kicks ass, has great gore and effects, some good laughs and generally rocks!

 The film starts off with the Hansel (Jeremy Renner)and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) we all know from fairy tales but gets a bit Tarantino after that. Fast forward 15 years later with Hansel and Gretal hunting down witches until they get hired by a town to find out what's happened to the town's children that have gone missing and eventually unravel a plot involving a Grand Evil Witch (Famke  Jennsen )and her coven seeking..... see the movie I won't spoil it.

There's quite a big nod to the "Steampunk" genre here as well through some really cool gadgets and gizmo's in the witch hunters arsenal and it works with the atmosphere of the movie. There is also a sequel in the works and I for one am looking forward to it! Rotten Tomatoes hated it so fuck them. Chances are if you read this blog on a regular basis then you know this will be a fun movie. If your looking for deep meanings and superb acting and some lah dee dah crap this aint your movie. If your looking for some action/adventure and kicking some supernatural ass, this will satisfy! -Evil von Scarry

One of those "underground" films (directed by Paul Bunnel) that looked like an Ed Wood homage and turned out to
be just as horrible. That being said if your a David Lynch fan and like that sort of over the top method style acting (like Brando in the Wild One or Liz Taylor back in the 50's) then this film might be for you. I for one HATE musicals (unless you put TOMMY or PINK FLOYD's THE WALL in that genre) so it was a major stretch for me to sit through the whole film. I did it cuz Kount Kreepy had me watch it. So figured better watch the whole damned thing before I attempt a review.

However my love of the weird and the 1950's cheesy sci-fi movies kept me going through what was a sci-fi comedy musical and was just quirky enough to stand on it's own. I'm pretty sure it will eventually become a cult classic, probably once it has some showings in Japan and then comes back to North America again. Looking into the film it cost about 2 Million to make and made about 117 bucks in ticket sales, LMAO.It was also named the worst film of 2012. Hell I'd see it on that accreditation alone!

The gist is a gang of bad ass rebel greaser types on a planet that is all about law and order finally get
exiled to what I'm guessing is the late 1950's early 60's earth. Tie in a dead rock n roller that gets resurrected using alien technology and some musical numbers with plenty of nods to various film and cult genres. Some of the rockabilly/psycho-billy crowd will also get a kick from the period pieces in the film.

From the people who brought you this film:

quote-"Shot on black-and-white Kodak film stock, Paul Bunnel’s 1950s throwback dials up the weirdness of the already surreal genre of sci-fi B movies with showstopping musical numbers, over-the-top dialogue, and hilariously hokey special effects.
Banished to Earth for intergalactic juvenile delinquency, Johnny X and his gang of Ghastly Ones set off in search of a piece of alien technology that could change the fate of the universe forever—the so-called “resurrection suit.” Soon, the extraterrestrial nogoodniks are embroiled in a wacky scheme involving a femme fatale named Bliss, a shifty concert promoter with schemes of his own, and a recently deceased musician who won’t let a little decomposition stop him from rocking." -end quote

If your a film buff or just a lover of cheesy films then it'll be worth your while to see this film. I can't really say anything bad about it but it's not on my list of fav's either. Then again I hated Rocky Horror Picture Show but absolutely loved Blue Velvet. This film has a similar feel of elements of both those films but does stand on it's own. It was also the last film appearance of Kevin McCarthy before his passing ( starred in "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" -1956).

I've left some links below to various media linked with the film. -Evil von Scarry

Evil Dead 2013 review

Finished watching Evil Dead the new one 2013. The Kount and I were both pretty pissed off we weren't the first Monster Kids in line for it but family, work,etc sometimes get in the way.

Well worth the watch, now of course not as good as the original (are they ever really?).
But this had the atmosphere that creeps people out and had some nods to the original but
still able to pull it off as it's own dog. Having said that though there's some parts in this new one that I will never forget!

It was pretty fucked up and had some really over the top moments. The effects were very well done
and has plenty for fans of the original. Being a huge fan myself (yeah I even got the t-shirt) of the original I was pleased to be able to pick out some "Easter eggs" from the original but also surprised that the film was able to do it's own ideas as well instead of just being a clone of the original film.

The beginning of the film actually gave something the original did not, some visual backgrounder. The original gave the backgrounder through an audio tape. This one actually SHOWS YOU what happened, which I thought was pretty cool. 

Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell ('hail to the King baby!') are producers of this film so for anyone out there who are worried Sam and Bruce weren't going to put up with anyone fucking with this film. And to all those pussies in movie theatres world wide who got up and walked out, what the fuck did you expect from a film entitled EVIL DEAD. LMAO for fuck sakes it's not a fucking Disney film!
To fans of the Evil Dead franchise if you've been holding back, don't. Go and see it. It will be worth your while. Cheers, Evil von Scarry.
