You may have noticed a pattern as the first week of the 30 days of Halloween blog posts will be all about our favourite psychopathic doll, Chucky. Today's blog post goes over the 2nd instalment of Child's play, aptly named Child's Play 2.    After the frightening events that took place in Child's Play, Andy Barclay is now being raised by foster parents when Chucky comes back into his life.  If you are looking for a sequel better than the first, this is not the film you are looking for. That said, despite having a weeker plot than the first,...

Like some of the other famous 80's horrors (Which I will undoubtedly touch upon during...

If you are looking for a high gore low budget b movie, this movie is for you. The movie Terrifier is actually based on a character from the cult anthology All Hallows Eve. This movie takes place on Halloween night where the unnerving Art the clown sets out to terrorize two girls and anyone else who gets in his path. Though the movie really had no storyline to speak of, it did make up for this somewhat with the gorey special effects. The villain is truly terrifying, much more so than other franchise clowns (*cough* Pennywise *cough*) in that you never...

If you are looking for a tear jerker, look no further than "Grave of the Fireflies" (Original title: "Hotaru no haka") which tells the sale of a young boy of 14 and his 4 year old sister as they struggle to survive in Japan during World War II. This movie is an older one, released in 1988 and based off a true story by Akiyuki Nosaka which chronicles his journey and loss due to the American fire bombing raids during WWII in his town of Kobe Japan.   Despite it being an older movie, the message conveyed is timeless, this is by...
