Kolobos

Kolobos

No tattooed cat lady or pet dragon in this film.

post-Scream, features teens.
you make self-aware comments.
do you know you suck?

When a movie is written and directed by the same person, it’s a sometimes a good indicator of the quality of film you’re watching. However, when the writer/director has a cameo in the first half hour and moons the camera, then you have a very good indicator of the quality of film you’re watching.

To keep our review fair and unbiased, here’s a user comment from imdb: “The Shower with acid in it is the best death i think because you think it could happen to you in real life, (well all the deaths can) but this 1 the most. Id give an 8/10”.

Here in Kolobos star Amy Weber’s hot track, “Ghost”, she’s been ‘tuned within an inch of her life. And there’s helpful subtitles to follow along with the lyrics! I personally recommend you watch for the photograph at the 0:30 mark. Jowly!

I need more synth handclaps!

Hellraiser (1987)

Um... he'll also tear your body apart.

Um... he'll also tear apart your entire body.

 

Gurl, your step-mom blows!
She brought back your dead uncle
and fucked with Pinhead.
 

Rubik’s Cube from Hell.
Step away from the portal!
AHHHHHH! The Cenobites!
 

Lovely party.

 

 

And as if Pinhead and the Cenobites weren’t enough to freak you right out,  Clive Barker decided to throw a reconstituted, skinless, sadomasochistic uncle into the mix. Fun for the whole family! 

Oh, hi. Nightmares forever.

Crush

Crush chris egan

he fights and housesits
his work out jams? papa roach
don’t sleep with that ghost

Though the film is fairly predictable, it manages to do a nice gender flip of the usual “obsessed spurned lover” plot. The male lead is the one running around, hiding in closets, and tripping over his own feet.  Bonus: The climax doesn’t feature the clueless girlfriend showing up so she can get saved.

And, yes, Papa Roach’s “Last Resort” was used not once but TWICE in this movie. We think the director missed a golden opportunity…
