Aesthetix' 365 Nights of Horror: Jan/2014 (closed) (39 movies items)

"1/14 Rewatch Synopsis: Three young children accidentally release a horde of nasty, pint-sized demons from a hole in a suburban backyard and must fight to close it. I knew that I had watched this years ago but couldn't really remember anything about it. Now, after watching, I realize that I could have saved myself the trouble. The demons were worth a few laughs as were the antics of the kids but, in the end, this is a movie about kids and aimed at an audience of kids."

My Horror Film Diary- 2013 (100 movies items)

" I kept hearing mixed reviews for this film, which thus-far had dampened my enthusiasm to watch it. All in all, this film has some fantastic ideas, but the excution is crap. The demons look like rejects from a Ray Harryhausen film (strange seeing as this was made in 1987) and some scenes are just downright goofy. (Sticking a Barbie doll in someone's eye?) However, some of the film is pretty good and it IS good popcorn entertainment. Just don't expect a classic and you'll get some enjoyment out "

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"The bible passage the Lee sisters picked out was from different portions of Psalms verses 59:1 to 59:9. The logo on the back of Terry's jacket is that of the Killer Dwarfs, a heavy metal band from the Toronto, Ontario area who were known for sense of humor. The fictional The Dark Book album Terry shows Glen features the logo for (the very real) Canadian thrash metal band Sacrifice. "

Too Young For Heart Attacks: Don't show your kids (13 movies items)

"The Gate is pretty low scare value stuff as an adult. But as a six year old? The stuff of utter nightmares! Hands under the bed, pits full of little clay monsters, dead people in the walls, monsters that pretend to be parents... It also seemed more scary because all the protagonists are children. There wasn't some big adult around to save the day. Yeah, I was traumatized. While you watch this clip, imagine how you would feel if this were happening to you at this kid's age. (The youtube video do"

You know......for kids! (139 movies items)

"A fun, but also really weird film, the small demon like creatures and the scene where one of the kid's parents show up, but turn out to be monsters, are just some of the odd things, that in this movie."

Still even more favorite quotes, from a film (253 movies items)

"Terrence 'Terry' Chandler: May the old devils depart! May they burn in the fires of their own damnation! May they freeze in the infinite golden darkness of their own hideous creation! Glen: Isn't that kind of insulting? Terrence 'Terry' Chandler: I guess it's supposed to be. I mean, we're trying to get rid of them. Glen: Well... ever since I burnt a hole in the roof my dad says I can't launch any of my rockets without supervision. Terrence 'Terry' Chandler: Hey... I'll supervise. "
