Campfire Tales, a review by addicted2dvd



Campfire Tales
Horror takes a detour deep into the woods in this terrifying cross between 'Scream' and 'Tales From The Crypt', starring Christine Taylor ('Dodgeball') and Ron Livingston ('Office Space').

Returning home from a concert and driving recklessly, four teenagers crash their car on a deserted road. To ward off the cold, they build a fire and wait for help. But the hair-raising stories they tell around the fire put a deeper chill into the night. Each tale is more lurid, more horrifying, more shocking than anything they've heard before. Yet for these unlucky teens in the woods, the biggest shock is still to come...


My Thoughts:
I blind bought this one for this past year's Halloween Marathon. I enjoyed it so much then that I found myself ready to watch it again now. I enjoyed it just as much this time as I did the first time. I am to the point of saying this is my favorite Anthology Horror at the moment. Not only was all 3 stories suspenseful with great atmosphere... the wrap around story (where anthologies usually loose me) was a really good story in it's own right. The only thing that I could consider a downfall in this movie would have to be the fact that the first 2 stories are tellings of very well known urban legends... so you fairly quickly know what to expect. But that is ok... because these stories are so well done that you still enjoy every moment of it... even if you do know where it is going. This is one I will highly recommend... especially if you like anthology horror.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Stephen King's Storm of the Century, a review by addicted2dvd



Title: Stephen King's Storm of the Century
Movie Count: 49
TV Ep Count: 17
Time Started: 12:30pm
Plot:
From Stephen King, the best-selling novelist of all time, comes the terrifying tale of a town besieged by evil. The inhabitants of a picturesque, sleepy little town on a small island off the coast of Maine find themselves completely cut off from the rest of the world when they are hit by the worst storm of the century.

As snow steadily buries everything familiar, terror arrives in the form of an evil stranger. As streets disappear and an eerie darkness envelops the town, a series of bizarre murders creates a nightmare of fear. With no help coming from the outside world and no end to the storm in sight, the townspeople are forced to take drastic action before it's too late.

My Thoughts:
This is another really good Stephen King miniseries... it is one I haven't watched in quite a while... so it was good to see it again. Being a parent I would have never been able to do make the decision they had to make. If you never seen this one I definitely recommend checking it out... I am sure you will enjoy it!

Fear Itself Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Fear Itself: The Complete Series


11. The Spirit Box
When two suburban high school girls try to contact a dead classmate via a board game, they receive an unexpected message from beyond the grave.
Director: Rob Schmidt ("Masters of Horror," Wrong Turn)


Stars:
Anna Kendrick
Martin Donovan
Jessica Parker Kennedy
Mark Pellegrino
Samantha Hill
Teresa Hung

My Thoughts:
This is a Halloween episode! Which I found odd since according to the cover art the last episode in the set (The Circle) is a Halloween episode. So either there is 2 Halloween episodes in this set... or the misprinted the cover art for the last episode. Though this one... only the opening scene takes place on Halloween night. This is another episode I enjoyed quite a bit. I liked how they did the ending. I thought I knew what the end twist was... and no sooner as they were revealing it... they twisted it again.
