Friday Film Recommendations: Nov 13th

Happy Friday All. Here’s This Week’s FFR

(Must have Netflix to Watch Now)

Aregento’s Card Player

Aregento has a great way of incorporating mystery and extreme violence into his films. Some of it is very over the top, but still I love it!

In Card Player, a policewoman is forced to play a dangerous game with the title serial killer. If she loses, she witnesses the maniac’s tortured victims having their throats cut in explicit close-up detail via webcam. She teams up with British cop to find out the identity of the murderer.

Even though the ending kind of confused me, I really loved the concept of this movie and I overall dug it.

Mother’s Day

I always feel that it’s important to see an original movie before the remake comes out. I don’t know what to think of Darren Lynn Bousman’s take on the movie as of yet, but so far the cast is amazing and I love Repo so it should be a fun movie. So even though the remake is miles away from hitting theaters, check out the original.

Teen Wolf Too

This really isn’t a horror movie but it’s got a werewolf in it so hey, it counts. Yes, Teen Wolf is a classic movie and nothing else can compare, but the sequel is cutesy and Jason Bateman is awesome so I have to recommend it.

Jason Goes to Hell

It’s Friday the 13th so it’s suiting that I recommend at least once F13 movie and since this one is on instant watch, you can watch it in honor of today. I don’t care that the idea of Jason jumping bodies like Shocker and eating hearts and all that shit is kind of stupid, I still think this movie is enjoyable. And this is the first F13 movie I saw in theaters so it’s special.

MOH: Incident on and Off a Mountain Road

Got an hour? Here’s the very first episode of Masters of Horror. I think some of this episode is a little predicable but I really love Angus Scrimm in this and it made me think, “hmm you’re not so tall after all!.” Overall, still a cool episode.

Hostel Part II

Last week I recommended the first movie now here’s the second. This didn’t do as well as the first movie but I still really loved it. Not only because of the last scene (hehe) but I love that we go deep into the process of the bidding wars, the preparation for the victims and the point of view of the buyers. We see the kind of people who want to explore the feeling of killing someone and paying butt loads of money to do it.

I also give it props for being girl empowering.

Evil Dead 2

Do I need to explain why I’m recommending this? Nah, I didn’t think so. I saw it listed and had to post it so if you haven’t seen it, do it and if you want to see again, do it!

Drive Thru

I picked up this screener at a con and thought it was going to be a cheesy teen slasher movie. It was but still I thought was entertaining. A supernatural killer clown kills teens. It’s not a great movie but for free, you might enjoy it.

Have a good weekend everyone!

One thought on “Friday Film Recommendations: Nov 13th

  1. I'm not against the Mother's Day remake, as no Troma film is really untouchable and I think Bouseman is a pretty respectful filmmaker in his own right. And whoah, Rebecca DeMornay? That could be damn good fun.

    The original is a weird little mean-spirited by goofily fun backwoods horror, with a few painful rape scenes but some interesting commentary. Written by Warren Leight, who went on to win a Tony as a playwright and is now a show runner for Law & Order: Criminal Intent. I haven't watched this movie since an eighth grade slumber party where I learned the hard way that not all my VHSs were appropriate for sleepovers.
