Is Horror Dead?

Is horror dead?

This has bothered me for a while now. I love the horror genre but I find it lacking on creativity and freshness as of late.

I can’t be the only one that thinks the horror genre is pretty much dead. Was dying in the 70s, John Carpenter brought it back with Halloween. Which is one of my favorite movies, not just in horror. In the 90s, horror was just about dead again. It needed something. A man by the name of Wes Craven came along with Scream and horror was back.

Scream had a lot of success. And gave other horror films after that success as well. But that was 16 years ago.  And Hollywood has given up on original ideas. Sequels and remakes are all that get the green light. That needs to stop. And straight-to-DVD needs to stop. Theatrical horror needs to come back and fast.

New slasher icons for the younger generation. Not just dusting off classic faces. Leave our loved killers alone. They had a good run. Several runs in fact. And yes, I love those classic icons. But you can’t learn to really cherish them if they’re never gone.

Sorry for this random post. I just feel like it needed to be said.

We need something badly.

Can you name all of these horror icons? in Name The Fiend by Horror Reviews

Saw I-VI was great! Saw: The Final Chapter is a joke.

But I do have to complete the collection. So, I will be buying Saw: The Final Chapter. Most likely on DVD. But maybe on Blu-ray, so I can have it unrated.

Worth watching. Eric makes some good points.

PLEASE DO NOT WATCH THE END OF THE VIDEO IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN SAW 3D.

I’ve watched Eric’s Saw reviews since Saw IV and have been a fan of his Youtube channel ever since.

From Yahoo

LOS ANGELES – Psychokiller Jigsaw has come back to life at the box office.

Saw 3D, the seventh installment in the series about Jigsaw’s legacy of bloody terror, debuted as the Halloween weekend’s No. 1 movie with $24.2 million.

That was $10 million more than last year’s Saw VI, the first dud in the annual horror franchise. But it still was a modest return compared to earlier chapters in the Saw series, whose previous sequels all had topped $30 million over opening weekend.

? out of 5

Was Saw 3D worth being in 3D? Did Saw 3D tie up all loose ends?

Plot: As a deadly battle rages over Jigsaw’s brutal legacy, a group of Jigsaw survivors gathers to seek the support of self-help guru and fellow survivor Bobby Dagen, a man whose own dark secrets unleash a new wave of terror.

First off, I noticed that the opening credits were different from the other Saw films. Which I liked, it was time for a change. But other than that it was another Saw film. But I’m ok with that. The other thing I really noticed was the story with Jill and Hoffman was the only thing I really wanted to see. The other story was fine and kept the game going.

Everyone that seen it Thursday night got a pair of limited edition I SAW IT FIRST 3D glasses. Which everyone pretty much put in the recycle bin. I however kept my pair because I love Saw!

Tobin bell wasn’t even in the film for 5 minutes. Since Saw VI was his finally game.

Cary Elwes did a great job. To see Dr. Gordon return was awesome. But wasn’t really in the movie.

Kevin Greutert (Saw VI, Saw 3D director) did an amazing job. He went through a lot of crap before shooting.

3D was not what I was expecting. Wasn’t clear enough. My dad and I both agreed we’d rather of see it in 2D on an HD TV.

Saw 3D was re-edited and submitted six times to the MPPA to bring it from an NC-17 to an R rating. Yes, the movie is very GRAPHIC.

Final thing, did it tie up all loose ends? Yes…and no. Some things they told us, some not. Could there be a sequel? Any movie can have a sequel but Saw 3D is said to be the last one. It truly is game over.

RIP Saw 2004-2010.

Rated R for sequences of grisly bloody violence and torture, and language.
