(Not So) Random (Blu-ray) Movie Mention: “DREDD” (2012)

DREDD (2012)

The Tagline Says…

JUDGMENT IS COMING

…And That’s Exactly What’s Happening.

Right Here.

Right Now.

Ready?

GREAT!

;)       :D

Let Me Truly Begin By Saying That This Flick…

DREDD

…Is My Favorite Blu-ray Of 2013, Thus Far.

I Can Say That Without Reservation, OR Hesitation.

It Is Simply Wonderful.

To Be Blunt…

…I LOVED IT!!!

As Far As The Film Goes, “DREDD” Is Totally And Easily 142,000-Times BETTER Than The Original Take On The Film, The Campy Cheese-Fest “JUDGE DREDD“, Starring SYLVESTER STALLONE.

In The 2012 Version…

KARL URBAN Is “DREDD

…And He’s So So SO Much Better As The Title Character Than Ole SLY Was.

Don’t Get Me Wrong, My Peeps, I AM A Fan Of Ole SLY STALLONE.

I Always Have Been.

I Just Enjoyed KARL URBAN‘s Take On The Character So So SO Much More.

DREDD” Is WILD.

It’s FUN.

It’s BRUTAL.

It’s BLOODY.

It’s LOADED With Wonderfully Awesome Special F/X, Trashy And Dangerous Characters, The Works!!!

It Has A Simple, But Effective, Plot.

And, Of Course, A Stone-Cold Performance By KARL URBAN.

:D

Honestly, I’m Actually Kinda Sad I Didn’t Make The Time To See This One Up On The Big Screen.

:(

After Seeing It On The Blu-ray, I Can Totally Tell Y’all I Would Have Happily Shelled Out My $10 To Catch It At The Theater.

This Blu-ray Is Rather Stunning.

The Sound Quality May Be The Best I’ve Yet Heard.

The Picture Quality Was Spot-On.

The Flick Simply LOOKED And SOUNDED Wonderfully Wonderful!!!

Co-Starring…

OLIVIA THIRLBY As The Rookie Judge “ANDERSON”

…And…

LENA HEADEY As The Ruthless Drug Kingpin “MA-MA”

…This Version Of The Classic “JUDGE DREDD” Comics Is Vastly Superior To The Original Film Adaptation, And I Had An Absolute Blast Checking-It-Out!!!

I Recommend This One To Anyone Who Enjoys Some Quality Escapist Fun!!!

JUDGMENT IS COMING

???

You Betcha, My Peeps!!!

It’s Coming, And It’s AWESOME!!!

:D       :D       :D

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

(Totally NOT) Random Movie Mention (Special Edition): “THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD” (1958)

I’ve Been A Fan Of The Sinbad Films All Of My Life…

…But…

THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD

…Has Been My Absolute FAVE-FAVE Of The Entire Sinbad Saga.

Released In 1958…

THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD

…Also Stars My Favorite Actor To Portray The Character Of Sinbad…

KERWIN MATHEWS

KERWIN MATHEWS

…Though Mr. Mathews Is NOT The Major Selling Point For The Film.

No, That Honor Belongs To The Special-Visual-Effects WIZARDRY Of…

RAY HARRYHAUSEN

!!!

He’s The Man Responsible For The Visuals Of Other Such Classics As…

MIGHTY JOE YOUNG” (1949)

THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS” (1953)

JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS” (1963)

…And Of Course…

THE CLASH OF THE TITANS” (1981)

!!!

You Should Trust Me On This One, My Peeps, When I Say…

THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD

…Is So So SO MUCH FUN!

I Recommend It To ANYONE Who’s A Fan Of Classic Monster Movies…

…Or Is A Fan Of AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL Special-Effects.

It Was Re-Released On DVD A Couple Years Ago…

…And The Film Transfer Is Absolutely GORGEOUS!

And If You’re Still Unsure About It…

…Even TIME MAGAZINE Says…

“ONE OF THE BEST MONSTER PICTURES EVER MADE.”

That Ain’t No Jive, My Peeps.

It Really Is A Classic Of The Genera.

Like I Said…

…You Should Trust Me On This One.

I Just Finished Watching It Right This Minute.

I’m On Full-Time Uncle Duty, At Present.

So, I’m Constantly Having To Find Ways To TRY And Entertain My Nephew.

Sooo, I Showed Him This One.

I Think He Really Enjoyed It.

Score One For Uncle Brad!!!

;)     :D     :)

:P

(NOT SO) Random (JAMES BOND BLU-RAY) Movie Mention: “A VIEW TO A KILL” (1985)

A View To A Kill (1985)

Yeah, That’s What’s On.

I Just Happen To Have This Classic JAMES BOND Caper On Ye Ole BLU-RAY, Now!

Exciting, Eh?!

:D

For The Longest Time, I Insisted To My Friends ((and anyone else whom might/might-not care)) That This BOND Adventure…

A VIEW TO A KILL

…Was MY ULTIMATE-FAVORITE BOND Flick.

Period.

And, For The Bulk Of My Youth, It Honestly Was.

While It May Not Be MY FAVORITE Any Longer, It Remains A True Joy For Me To Kick-Back And Watch.

A VIEW TO A KILL” And “OCTOPUSSY” Actually Started My Personal Love Affair AND Adventure With Ole -007- And His Amazingly Wonderful World.

I Sincerely Haven’t Looked Back, Since.

I’ve Been Hooked From The Onset.

I Do So So SO Love This Movie, And Think It To Be Very Very VERY Underrated.

Yeah, I’ll Grant That ROGER MOORE Was A Little “Long-In-The-Tooth” At Times During This One.

It Can’t Be Denied, So I Won’t Even Try To Do So.

But, Did It Honestly Bother Me???

Nope.

NOT. AT. ALL.

I’m A Huge ROGER MOORE Fanboy.

He Shall Always AND Forever Be MY FAVORITE BOND, And It’s Pure Bliss For Me To Watch Him Go On A Mission As The World’s Most Famous Spy.

:D       :D       :D

A VIEW TO A KILL” Co-Stars CHRISTOPHER WALKEN As Our Baddie, The F-in’ Brilliantly Insane “MAX ZORIN“, Whom Is Hell-Bent On Destroying Silicon Valley, California, With A Man-Made MEGA-DISASTER!

He Wants To Corner The World’s Microchip Market, You See.

Honestly, He’s The Icing On The Sweet Sweet Cake That Is A ROGER MOORE Bond-Fest.

And, If CHRISTOPHER WALKEN Is The Icing, Then GRACE JONES As The Evil Henchwoman “MAY-DAY” Is The Strawberry On-Top!

(((I hate raw cherries, so those don't come anywhere near my sweet sweet cakes with icing!)))

Just Sayin’.

;)

This Flick Is Truly PRICELESS.

It’s Over-The-Top At Times, But It’s Totally Worth It, My Peeps.

The Chase Scene Going From The Eiffel Tower, And Ending With A Crashed Wedding On A Barge, Is Simply Wonderful FUN.

And, That’s Exactly What The Whole Flick Is…

FUN!!!

Sometimes, That’s Really All I’m Lookin’ For.

I’m Very Happy To Have Now Added This BOND Caper To My Blu-ray Collection, And Now I’m Going To Get Back To Watching It.

I’ve Likely Seen It 412′ish Times…

…BUT It Has Yet To Get Old.

OH, And Don’t Forget About The Film’s Theme Song!

It’s Performed By Another Person Favorite…

DURAN DURAN

!!! !!! !!!

VTAK_-_UK_cinema_poster (via Wikipedia)

It’s STILL My Absolute Favorite BOND Theme Song.

Period Period Period.

Y’all Should Give This BOND Flick Another Chance, My Peeps.

It Is Deserving Of At Least That Much.

Who Knows, Maybe You’ll Encounter A New Found Appreciation For It.

I Know I Did, And I Already Really Enjoyed It.

You Just Can’t Beat JAMES BOND On The BLU-RAY!!!

:D

Happy Movie Watching, Kiddies!!!

:D       :D       :D       :D       :D       :D       :D

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

Some Film Highlights?!?

The Gypsy Camp.

That Awesome Rifle AND Briefcase.

That Even MORE Awesome Wrist-Watch.

A Nifty Boat Chase.

An Even MORE Nifty Helicopter Attack.

But, My Favorite Is The Train Trip On The Super Classic “ORIENT EXPRESS“!!!

:D       :D

So, My Peeps, If You’re Really In The Mood For A Very Classic BOND Adventure…

…Then I’m Sure You’ll Get A Real Kick Out Of This One!!!

(ALMOST) Random (MIDNIGHT) Movie Mention: “UNKNOWN” (2011)

UNKNOWN (2011)

UNKNOWN

…Stars MY MAIN MAN Himself…

LIAM NEESON

:D       :D       :D

…And Stars…

AIDAN QUINN

JANUARY JONES

DIANE KRUGER

&

FRANK Skeletor LANGELLA

:D       :D

It’s Also Produced By “Mr. UBER PRODUCER“…

JOEL SILVER

:D

Alright, My Peeps…

…Check-It-Out…

LIAM NEESON

Is

Dr. MARTIN HARRIS

…He Thinks?

But, Is He Really?

Well…

…We Really DON’T KNOW.

((wink wink))

You See, Shortly Into The Flick, He’s In A Car Crash.

He Hit His Head Hard.

He’s Now In The Hospital.

And, He’s Just Awakened From A Four (4) Day Coma.

He’s In Berlin.

He Doesn’t Speak German.

He Has No Official Identification.

He Might Know Some People, But We’re Not Really Sure.

He Just Remembers That He’s Dr. MARTIN HARRIS And That His Wife ((played by JANUARY JONES)) Doesn’t Know Where He Is, Nor What Has Happened.

He Then Remembers She Should Be At The Hotel They Were Originally Going To Stay In, And He’s Got To Go Find Her.

BUT…

…When He Does Get To The Hotel, And He Does Find His Supposed Wife…

…SHE DOESN’T CLAIM TO KNOW HIM AT ALL.

And Now Another Man ((played by AIDAN QUINN)) Shows-Up And Says That HE’s ActuallyDr. MARTIN HARRIS!!!

W.T.F.

?!?!?!?!?!?

And NOW The Flick Really REALLY Begins!!!

:D     :D     :D     :D

UNKNOWN

…Is Really A MUCH BETTER Flick Than A Lot Of Folks May Have Told You.

It Just Had The Bad Luck Of Coming Out After LIAM NEESON‘s Surprise Mega-Hit-Flick…

TAKEN

:(

UNKNOWN

…Is Fun.

It’s Exciting.

It’s Suspenseful.

It’s Clever.

It Was Good Enough For Me To Wanna Buy It, My Peeps.

I’d Say That’s PLENTY Good.

;)

Some People Told Me “UNKNOWN” Was Slow In Too Many Places, Which Ultimately Hurt The Overall Presentation.

To Those People, I Simply Say…

YOURE IMPATIENT!”

Dammit.

I Thought This Was A Classically Paced Thriller.

I Could EASILY See ALFRED HITCHCOCK Directing Something Like This.

HITCHCOCK Loved The Whole Idea Of The MISTAKEN IDENTITY Caper.

I Think He Would Have Relished In Directing This Flick.

Or, At Least, A Flick Like It.

I’m NOT Saying “UNKNOWN” Is The Greatest Flick Ever, My Peeps.

I AM Saying “UNKNOWN” Is A Lot Better Than You May Realize.

It’s Also Got MORE DEPTH And A THICKER PLOT Than People Gave It Credit For.

It’s Got MORE DEPTH And A THICKER PLOT Than “TAKEN” Had.

And That Is A FACT.

Period Period.

If You Haven’t Seen “UNKNOWN” Yet, Give It A Go, Kids.

If You’ve Seen It Once, And Didn’t Bother Going Another Round…

…Please…

…Do Yourself The Favor Of Checking-It-Out AGAIN.

It’ll Only Cost You 113-Minutes Of Your Life.

A Drop In The Bucket, Ya Know?!

;)

GOLDENEYE

PIERCE BROSNAN

SEAN BEAN

FAMKE JANSSEN

IZABELLA SCOROUPCO

MARTIN CAMPBELL (Who Would Later Go On To Direct “CASINO ROYALE” (2006))

:D     :D     :D

PIERCE Has His BEST Outing As JAMES BOND -007,  And He Is At The Top Of His Game, As Are Our Baddies…

…Played By…

SEAN BEAN

…With His Bad-ass Henchman, The Seductively Gorgeous AND Deadly…

FAMKE JANSSEN

:D

BEAN Is A Former “00″ Agent Whom Has Gone Rogue, And Whom Is Plotting Against MI 6, And The Rest Of The Words.

SEAN BEAN‘s

(Alex Trevelyan (Formerly 006)

…Is One Of The Very Best BOND Villains Ever Spawned From The “JAMES BOND” Flicks.

Period.

The Pre-Title Sequence…

…OR The Pre-Credit Sequence…

…Is One Of The Very Best Ever To Come From The BOND Universe, Of Which There’s Been A Boat-Full.

It Made A Lasting Impression, That’s A Big FO SHO.

The 1ST Time I Watched It…

…I Was BLOWN AWAY.

Now…

…The 547TH’ish Time I’ve Plopped Down And Watched It…

…Hmm…

…Nope…

…Still BLOWN AWAY!!!

It DOES Rank In My TOP 5 Opening Sequences In BOND-Franchise HISTORY.

#1 = “THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN” (1974)

*2 = “GOLDFINGER” (1962)

#3 = “CASINO ROYALE” (2006)

#4 = “GOLDENEYE” (1995)

#5 = “THE SPY WHO LOVED ME” (1977)

…Is How I Would Rank The PRE-CREDIT/TITLE Portion Of The Flicks.

HOW ABOUT YOU?!
ANY IDEAS Or OPINIONS?!??

GOLDENEYE

…Is The Best Possible Debut PIERCE Could Have Expected.

The Action Is Crazy Intense…

…And it’s Got All The Action/Adventure Elements A Bond Flick Could Hope For.

It’s Totally What The Audience Was Hoping For From BOND In 1995, That’s A Big BIG FO SHO!

It’s Brilliant.

Everything From The Opening “BUNGEE-JUMP SEQUENCE”

…To The “AIRPLANE ESCAPE”

…Through A “TANK CHASE”

…All The Way To The Final Battle At The End…

GOLDENEYE

…Delivers The Goods!!!

GOLDENEYE

…Is The Best Possible Debut Of A New BOND That The BOND Fans Could Have Hoped For.

Pure ACTION And ADVENTURE, Kiddies.

Granted…

…Each Flick PEIRCE Released Was A Little Worse Than That Which Preceded It…

…But Hey…

…Can’t Win ‘Em All.

BUT…

GOLDENEYE

…Does Rank Among The Hierarchy Of BOND Adventures.

.Period Period.

Love It, LOVE IT!!!

And This BLU-RAY Edition Is Fantastic.

You Try Watching…

GOLDENEYE

…On A 55Inch TV…

…In Surround Sound, No Less.

;)

Yeah.

The Film Is Breathtaking.

.Period.

The ONLY BOND’ian Debut That MIGHT Beat This One In A Stick-Poking Contest At K-Mart Is…

CASINO ROYALE

(2006)

…But That’s It!!!

Otherwise…

…It’s ALL About The…

GOLDENEYE

.PERIOD.

:D

Please Check This One Out, Kiddies.

It’s A Damn Fine Film…

…Damn Fine, Indeed.

If You Love ACTION And ADVENTURE…

…Then This BOND Flick…

GOLDENEYE

…Is Totally Worth Checking-Out!

It’s One Of The Best Of THE BEST…

…And Will Go Down As One OF The BEST BOND FLICKS, Period, To Star…

PIERCE BROSNAN

…And That’s The BIGGEST FO SHO!!!

(Not So) Random (Blu-ray) Movie Mention: “ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER” (2012)

Alright…

…So I Did Get ’round To Watching (On The Blu-ray)

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER

…And…

…Well…

…What Can I Say?!

Hmm.

Well…

…Honestly…

I Had Fun.

Perhaps Even MORE Fun Than I Rightly Should Have.

Was It A Good Film?

Nah.

Not Really.

Was It A Sufficiently Sufficient “B-Movie”/Action/Horror/Schlock Flick?

Yeah.

Actually, It Was.

:)

Is It Gonna Win An “Oscar”?

Nah.

Not At All.

Is It Gonna Get A Couple “Razzie” Noms?

Yeah.

Actually, It (likely) Will.

:)

Do I Appear To Give A Rat’s Ass Either Way?

Nah.

Not Really.

Does That In Any Way Take Away From The Cheesy Pleasure I Received From Checking-It-Out?

NOT. AT. ALL.

Period.

:D

It Is Was It Is…

…It Is What It Was…

…It Is What It’ll Always Be…

Cheese-Tastic.

Is That EXACTLY What I Expected It To Be?

Yep.

TOTALLY!

:D

What?!

Oh, Like You Really Had High Hopes!!

You KNOW You Didn’t.

You KNEW What It Was Going To Be.

And It Was EXACTLY That.

Cheese-Tastic.

Period.

I’ve Seen Worse Flicks, Fo SHO, My Peeps.

I Loved RUFUS SEWELL As The Big Baddie Vamp “Adam”

…So That’s Nifty.

Mr. SEWELL Has Always Been A Personal Fave Of Mine.

A Very VERY Underrated Actor, To Say The Least.

He Helps The Flick Succeed Much More-So Than It Would Have Otherwise.

Or So I Believe.

THE BOTTOM LINE:

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER

…Is…

…Was…

…Always Will Be…

…BETTER…

…Than A Poke-In-The-Eye…

…With A Sharp-Stick…

…In A K-Mart Parking-Lot.

That’s Good Enough, Right?!

Riiight.

Good Enough, Indeed.

;)       :D       :)

(Not So) Random (At All) Movie Mention: Joe Carnahan’s “THE GREY” (2011) Starring LIAM NEESON! ! !

THE GREY

(2011)

…Is Much More Than Just An Action/Drama/Horror Flick.

It’s So SO Much More.

It IS A Work Of Adrenaline-Pumping ACTON.

It IS A Work Of Wrenching, Heart-Felt DRAMA.

It IS A Work Of HORROR And TERROR.

BUT…

…It’s ALSO A Wonderful Work Of ART.

Period.

Y’all Already Know I’m A Huge Fanboy Of…

LIAM NEESON

…And This Flick Takes That Fact And Cements It Even More So Than It Was Before.

I Still Consider LIAM NEESON To Be One Of The Most Underrated Actors Of The Past 30 Years…

…And I Sincerely Feel…

THE GREY

…To Be A Totally Underrated Flick.

Period Period.

NEESON Is “OTTWAY

…A Dark, Brooding, Loner Of A Character.

He Suffers Deeply Over The Loss Of His Wife…

…And Is, Therefore, Supremely Depressed.

So Depressed Is He, That He’s Suicidal.

He Simply Can’t Do It.

He Can’t Pull The Trigger…

…Neither Figuratively, Nor Literally.

He Has All But Given-Up On Life…

…And He Can Barely Find The Will To Carry On.

SUDDENLY…

…Following A Jet-Plane Crash In The Wind And Snow Swept Alaskan Wilderness…

…He (“OTTWAY“) Is Thrust Into The Position Of Life Saver For AND Leader Of A Small Group Of Oil-Drilling Roughnecks.

BUT…

…The Crash Isn’t The Worst Of It All.

The Survivors Are Now Being Stalked/Hunted By A Pack Of Large WOLVES, Thirsty For Blood.

It Quickly Becomes A Life & Death Situation For The Few Remaining Men…

…A Situation Where None Are Likely To Survive!

*** ***

YES, My Peeps, I’m A Convert Within The Realm That Is…

THE GREY

Period Period Period.

It May Be Action Packed AND Brutal…

…But It’s Also Poetic, Thought-Provoking, AND Beautiful.

The Film’s Writer AND Director…

JOE CARNAHAN

…Has Written An Amazing Story…

…Both Simple AND Complex…

…And Has Directed It With Style AND Care.

The Landscapes Are Gorgeously, Amazingly Shot…

…Adding To The Visual Splendor Of The Flick…

…Along With Adding Deep Deep Feelings Of EXTREME ISOLATION!

Feelings That Only Make The Story Become Even BETTER!

You Know What, My Peeps…

…After Having Watched…

THE GREY

…For The Third Time, I’m Convinced The Ending Of The Film Is Much MUCH More Thought Provoking AND Honest Than I’d Originally Given It Credit For.

In Fact…

…The End Of The Flick Is The Biggest Reason WHY I’m Calling It “Art Flick”…

…As It Leaves You To Ponder The Possibilities…

…And Yet, You’re (ALMOST) Sure You Know How The Story Will Play Out.

You’re (ALMOST) Sure Of What The Final Outcome Would Likely Be.

But You Don’t Know…

…And Ya Know What, My Peeps…

…That’s Perfectly Acceptable To Me.

This Is A Flick That Totally Deserves To Be Seen…

…But Seen More Than Just Once.

One Viewing Simply Isn’t Enough To Totally Appreciate What Has Been Experienced.

I LOVE…

THE GREY

…And Can Now Count It Among My Fave-Faves From…

LIAM NEESON

:)       :D       :)

PLEASE, My Peeps…

…PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE…

…Give This Flick A Second Chance.

If You Enjoy It, Great.

If You’re Unsure, Or Even Disliked It, A Second Chance Is At Least Deserved.

Even ME…

…I’ve Previously Admitted To Being Unsure If I Liked It After Having Seen It For The First Time.

But The Second Time It Was Better…

…And The Third Time I Was Sold.

I’m Happy With Myself For Having Given…

THE GREY

…Another Chance To Impress Me…

…And It Did That Very Thing.

ENJOY, My Peeps…

…ENJOY, INDEED!!!

:D       :D       :D       :D

Random (Halloween’ish) Movie Mention: “TALES FROM THE CRYPT Presents: DEMON KNIGHT” (1994)

TALES FROM THE CRYPT

…Was/Is An All-Time Favorite Television Series Of Mine.

If You Don’t Know, It Used To Air New/Original Episodes On The HBO Network.

So When I’d Heard They Were Releasing A Big-Screen Adventure, I Was VERY Ready To Give It A Go.

I Was 14-Years-Old.

I’d Been A Huge Fan Of All Things Horror For About…

…Oh…

…Maybe Seven (7) Years, At That Point.

I’d Been Watching Horror (In Secret) For So Long By 1994…

…I Sincerely Can’t Be Sure How Long It Had Been Going On.

I Was Addicted To A Programing Setup Called…

USA: UP-ALL-NIGHT

…On The USA Network.

Anyone Remember That Stuff?

Anyone?!

(*counts hands*)

COOL!

More Of Y’all Than I’d Expected!!

That’s GREAT!!!

Okay, YES…

…The USA Network Was AWESOME Back-In-The-Day.

Ms. RHONDA Used To Host It…

…And They Would Feature All-Sorts Of Horror Flicks.

Yeah, They Were Edited For Some Of The Most Extreme Content…

…But They Still Showed A Lot Of Stuff One Might Not Have Expected.

I Saw The “FRIDAY THE 13TH” Flicks For The First Time Thanks To The USA Network!

:D

ANYWAY…

…Sorry Was Drifting From The Point…

…But YES…

…I’ve Been A Horror/Thriller Geeky-Fanboy For A Very VERY Long Time.

OKAY…

…So In 1994, The Film…

TALES FROM THE CRYPT Presents: DEMON KNIGHT

…Was Released!!!

It Stars…

BILLY ZANE

WILLIAM SADLER

JADA PINKETT-SMITH

CCH POUNDER

THOMAS HADEN CHURCH

…And An Assorted Selection Of “D-LIST” Celebrities.

:D       :D

The Gist Of The Flick Is…

…There’s A Strange Drifter Named “BRAYKER” (WILLIAM SADLER), And He’s On The Run.

He’s Attempting To Evade “THE COLLECTOR” (BILLY ZANE).

So…

…”BRAYKER” Finds His Way To A Run-Down Boarding-House To Hold-Up And Catch His Breath.

This Said Boarding-House Is Inhabited By An Odd Motley-Misha-Mash Of Other Really Strange People.

“BRAYKER” Knows He Can’t Run Forever, And “THE COLLECTOR” Eventually Makes His Way To This Boarding-House.

You See…

…”BRAYKER” Is In Possession Of A Key.

It’s The Last Of SEVEN (7) Keys.

The Said SEVEN (7) Keys Are Religious Artifacts That Protect Humanity From The Forces Of EVIL!

And Now You Know What “THE COLLECTOR” Is Truly After.

It’s Not “BRAYKER” He Really Wants…

…It’s The KEY!

When The Forces Of GOOD And EVIL Collide Here In Our Boarding-House…

…WHOA…

…We’re Talking PRIMO-HORROR-DELIGHT!!!

So What’s Gonna Happen?!

?!?!?

Now You Kids Know Good-And-Hell-Well I’m Not Gonna Tell You!!

It Would SPOIL THE FUN, And I Simply HATE Spoilers!!

If You’re Curious…

…Why Don’t You Just Check-It-Out!!!

Go Ahead, I’ll Wait Right Here.

;)

:D     :D

YES, My Peeps…

…I’m Not Joking When I Say This…

…I Truly Truly DO Enjoy Watching This Flick.

Period.

The Peeps At “TALES FROM THE CRYPT” Sure Did Make It A Damn Fun Flick, Fo SHO!!!

This Flick Also Has A KILLER Of A Soundtrack, Featuring Songs From…

PANTERA

MEGADETH

ROLLINS BAND

MINISTRY

…And MORE!!!

Is This One I’d Recommend To Y’all?!

Well…

…If You Have A Stout Stomach…

…Then YES!!

(*teehehehe*)

It’s Pretty Damned Cool, Actually.

It Has A Nifty Melding Of HORROR And DARK-COMEDY That Could Potentially Delight You.

I Know It Did So For Me!

So Give This One A GO, Kiddies!

I Think You’ll Have Fun!

I Know I Did!

I Know Everyone I’ve Discussed This Flick With Did.

So The Odds Are In YOUR Favor!!!

How Often Does THAT Happen, My Peeps?!

EXACTLY!!

No Bloody Often Enough!!

I Do Hope You Enjoy This Little…

DEADTIME STORY

…As The “CRYPT KEEPER” Would Say!!!

(*MMMUHAHAHAHAHAHA!*)

;)
