An average movie

5 years, 9 months ago at Aug 30 9:25
I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie but, somehow, I still ended up watching this flick. Well, I have to admit that I have never been a huge fan of Stephen King but it has been a while since I have seen such a pathetic adaptation of one of his books.  First of all, I thought it was pretty obvious that it was based on a short-story and the makers somehow really struggled to expand... read more

As physician Burt Stanton and his girlfriend Vicky drive across the Midwest to his new job, their trip comes to a sudden halt when they encounter the body of a murdered boy in the road.

Soon the couple is fleeing the youthful fanatics, who want to sacrifice them to their demonic deity.

Movies I've Watched in 2024 (So Far) (169 movies items)

"Watched on: April 9th, 2024. Pretty good, especially for a movie I've heard about many times throughout my horror journey starting from the early age of 8 years old all the way to my adulthood and it just happens to be just now, today that I decided to watch this flick. The blood effects were pretty good as well as the acting of the two main characters. The very opening was definitely a shocker and I could definitely see it shocking people at the time who'd never seen such violence before. The "

Watched films in 2024 (70 movies items)

"24.2. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Maissilapset. Suusta suuhun -legenda ala-asteelta ja ensimmäisiä, ellei jopa ensimmäinen DVD-hankintani 20 vuotta sitten. Arrow:n BD on taas vähän eri juttu, kuin 14" Salora + Future Filmin DVD. Premissihän on häiritsevä. Sitä ei varsinaisesti tunnelmoinnissa ohikiitäviä hetkiä lukuunottamatta hyödynnetä, mitä nyt komeassa lavastuksessa. Joku voisi vetää ajatusviivoja ties mihin allegorioihin vaikka vallankumouksesta tai uskonnollisista lahkoista "

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 1 (121 movies items)

"Pro: It’s not all that bad of a film. Really. The atmosphere and music John Franklin and Courtney Gains, as Issac and Malachi Linda Hamilton and Peter Horton, as Bert and Linda It’s a great guilty pleasure movie. Con: The effects, especially with He Who Walks Behind the Rows, instead he is more like a demonic version of the gopher from Caddyshack."

"A fairly average movie, that is decidedly more scarier than when I first saw it. Having seen only a few Stephen King adaptations, I had very little to compare it to. But now it’s not that bad of a movie, actually."

Horrorfest 2019 (27 movies items)

" Had a good discussion with my girlfriend trying to decide a movie that would fit this prompt- any dog horror films? Burly men seem plentiful but hardly a set piece. Some bug films might have worked but I didn’t want a mid-2000s B movie and I didn’t think The Fly actually had any molting, just oozing. But then “corn husk” popped into my head and I knew the perfect film. Children of the Corn is kind of goofy and I had low expectations going in, so I put it on while doing chores. But "
