Life After Beth, Trophy Heads, Night of the Living Dead 3D and Virus

October Horror Movie Challenge Day 17

Life After Beth (2014)

Why I Watched:
Crazy Love Theme Night

What I Learned:
  • Wow. Paul Reiser. There's someone you don't see often anymore. 
  • This cast is so surprising. Paul Reiser. Cheryl Hines. Molly Shannon. John C. Reilly. Anna freaking Kendrick.
  • Man, his bulge game is strong.
  • Having sex with your back-from-the-dead girlfriend - never a good idea.
  • Smooth jazz soothes the zombie soul. 
  • Talking zombies (that aren't just screaming for braaaaiins) are weird and confusing. Like, how do you deal with that?
  • Fleeing a zombie invasion? Can't forget your CDs. In 20freaking14.


Trophy Heads (2014)

What I Learned:
  • Starts with an alien mask wearing killer and is mom videoing a scythe beheading. Then random boobs. 
  • Really decent low budget references here: Creepozoids, Head of the Family
  • I had the lowest of expectations going into this movie, but it is actually sort of awesome.


Night of the Living Dead 3D (2006)

What I Learned:
  • Mapquest's infamous wrong directions. Yeah, they did me dirty once upon a time. 
  • No "They're coming to get you Barbara"? Really? Same cemetery scene, with Barbara, and nothing.
  • And now their watching the original movie. I don't t know what to make of this.
  • Ugh. Stoner isn't funny stoner, he's too stupid to live stoner.
  • Idiot shoots through closed window at zombie. Now the window is broken and they're all getting in. 
  • Good lord, this movie is such a disappointment.
  • "Ever read those Left Behind books?" Woman thinks zombies = Rapture. I'm thinking she didn't read the books.
  • I want to stab the stupid out of these people.
  • Intestines that look exactly like big fat summer sausage. It's like they aren't even trying.
  • No training, perfect head shot.


Virus (1999)

What I Learned:
  • Middle aged Donald Sutherland is very convincing as a sea captain. He's got the expected look. Like the hat fits well. 
  • Alien. On the ocean. With robots. And I want to say something about The Terminator. And Transformers. It's all the things.
  • It's a horror movie featuring evil Erector sets.
  • Right. Evil robot aliens aren't enough. We also need to be in a hurricane in the middle of the ocean.
