My Lame First Season Reviews of MOH
I might do season 2 if someone throws me a fish.
Incident On and Off a Mountain Road-Not perfect, but I did enjoy it. I want to say that is was based on a Lansdale story.
H. P. Lovecraft's Dreams in the Witch-House-I am biased because I am a fan of Stuart's Lovecraft adaptations, but I really enjoyed this one and the end freaked me out!
Dance of the Dead-More like the dance of the retarded!
Jenifer-Interesting enough. I like the build up.
Chocolate-Pretty forgettable overall.
Homecoming- A lot of people consider this one to be the worst, but I was somewhat amused, but it is pretty bad.
Deer Woman- I thought this was funny if nothing else.
Cigarette Burns-One of my favorites. The best thing Carpenter has done in a million years.
Fair Haired Child-Okay.
Sick Girl-I thought this was really fun to watch.
Pick Me Up-Okay.
Haeckel's Tale-Guilty pleasure sort of thing, lol! Frankenstein-ish, based on a Clive Barker story, and kinky undead sex. :O
Imprint-Pretty good, but I had trouble understanding some of the Asian actors probably because I am a racist.
I would say my top 5 are in no particular order:Dreams in the Witch-House, Cigarette Burns, Haeckel's Tale, Imprint, and Sick Girl.
First Image of John Cusack as Edgar Allen Poe in THE RAVEN
Huge Cusack fan...hey a Blu of Grosse Point Blank would be nice...
In this gritty thriller, Edgar Allen Poe (John Cusack, Being John Malkovich) joins forces with a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans, Immortals) to hunt down a mad serial killer who’s using Poe’s own works as the basis in a string of brutal murders. Directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta), the film also stars Alice Eve (Sex and the City 2), Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Faster).
When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields (Luke Evans) makes a startling discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory detail in the local newspaper—part of a collection of stories penned by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe. But even as Poe is questioned by police, another grisly murder occurs, also inspired by a popular Poe story.
Realizing a serial killer is on the loose using Poe’s writings as the backdrop for his bloody rampage, Fields enlists the author’s help in stopping the attacks. But when it appears someone close to Poe may become the murderer’s next victim, the stakes become even higher and the inventor of the detective story calls on his own powers of deduction to try to solve the case before it’s too late.
Thanks for the recommendations, both of you guys.
Orph, gimme your thoughts on Season 2. I trust your taste, especially when it comes to horror.
I always see a lot of these DVDs for really cheap and I want to make sure I pick some up next time if they're worth it.
