Posts Tagged ‘Old Movie Reviews’

I understand the whole idea behind production companies releasing movies straight to DVD, but at this point in the business, these companies need to let the public know when they are releasing a film directly to DVD.  They should if they want to make some kind of money and expose their creations.  Now I pretty much consider myself a movie buff and I think I am in the loop when it comes to viewing new movies, old movies and everything in-between.  Now I must admit that with writing my new book series I have been devoting a lot of my time working but that still does not mean that I am clueless in what is going on in the movie world.  Last night while I was resting and playing on my NOOK I decided to find a movie to watch on Netflix since there was nothing on television.  I stumbled upon a horror that was released last year called “Hellraiser: Revelations”  starring Steven Brand.   I knew nothing about this movie.  This movie is the ninth installment in the franchise.  It basically had the same concept as the other movies.  A couple of teens come across the box, one opens the box and then they are unwillingly sucked into the demonic world of the Cenobites.  As a fan of Clive Barker, the original and the sequel, I had to follow in suit and watch them all, just to stay true to the series.  It is an unspoken devotion to the genre and the craft as a whole to watch these movies even if the casts, directors and overall storylines are altered in such ways that may not appeal to the average movie goer.  Remember A nightmare on Elm Street: Freddy’s Dead?  That was horrible, but most of us who love classic horror had to see it.  I know there are so many more movies out there like that, but it can be hard to just turn your back on a series that you have invested years of faithfulness and devotion to.

I suggest that these companies invest more money and time in advertising.  A real movie buff is willing to give a movie a chance just as long as they are aware that the movie is floating on a shelf.  That shelf could be part of Netflix or Blockbuster or any other movie distribution company.

Cabin in Woods will be released this weekend and I am curious to how it will do considering Hunger Games has been on top for last few weeks.  Stay tuned for a movie review.

Happy Reading, Writing and Creating!
