Movie 4 of 2010: Shutter

Creepy, yet fun. Wasn't sure what to expect with this movie going in, but turned out to be pretty good. I wouldn't necessarily say it was "scary", but definitely had a creepy and weird factor in parts of it. Definitely worth checking out at least once if you enjoy horror movies.

Movie 3 of 2010: Night of the Demons

This is an old 80s horror movie that I had never seen, but was suggested to me. It was a bit cheesy, but I actually enjoy cheesy movies so it was quite fun. Comic horror at its finest! I highly recommend this to people who love the sub-genre. It has some very weird scenes in it and also some intense moments. For a movie done in the 80s it was actually VERY well made I thought. I may actually re-watch this one again not too far down the road 'cause I enjoyed it that much! I also need to search out the sequel to the movie as I want to see what it's like & I've also heard there is a re-make of this one coming out so should be interesting to see what they do with it. Hopefully they don't ruin the original!

Movie 2 of 2010: The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

I absolutely LOVED this movie!!! I wished there had been a bit more Johnny Depp, but Heath Ledger looked so much like Johnny throughout that it kinda felt like he was in it more. Was a fabulous cast though and I will definitely be buying the DVD once it comes out. A shame this movie is on such a limited release as I assume not as many people will get to view it in the theater as the movie is deserving of. It's definitely worth seeing on the big screen as it's a gorgeous film!

Movie 1 of 2010: The Boogeyman

Still trying to catch up on some of the "classic horror". This one was actually pretty good. I will get around to watching the sequel one of these days soon I'm sure as well. :)

2009 - A Year In Movies

So my movie blog didn't get kept up to date this year after February *blush*, but I did watch movies after that, granted not nearly as many as books I read. I'm just not a big movie watcher. Anyway... was just thinking back on what movies I really enjoyed this year and came up with my top 10. I'll try to do better with keeping my blog up-to-date next year. :)

1. Drag Me To Hell (this is the first horror movie to really creep me out since I was a little kid therefore it deserves the #1 spot in my opinion... though it seems to be a love it or hate it movie based on the opinions I've been seeing around by my friends)

2. Orphan

3. Coraline (not sure how close it follows the book since I read the book several years back, but it's a gorgeous movie!)

4. The Orphanage

5. Severance

6. Vacancy

7. My Bloody Valentine 3-D (never saw the original so can't compare it to that one... I know there have been complaints about it being crappy in comparison)

8. Tideland

9. Public Enemies (you didn't seriously think I'd make it through a top 10 movie list WITHOUT a Johnny movie, did you?!?!? *grin*)

10. Fright Night
