RC-M: Hallo-Weekend 2013 Quadruple-Feature

Saturday, 02 November 2013 18:22

For those of you still celebrating Halloween this weekend, Roger Cor-MANIA! digs up four Corman-related horror flicks from the '70s and '80s. It's a grab bag of mummies, vampires, Frankensteins and freaks in this 2013 Hallo-weekend marathon.

These four films can be purchased in the "Vampires, Mummies, and Monsters" collection from SHOUT! Factory. All media used in this production do not necessarily represent the video quality of any particular product.

Produced and edited by Alex "Philosophic_Al" Lane for TankedMatinee.com

V/H/S/2 (2013)

Friday, 01 November 2013 04:28

The Buzz:

        Two private investigators have been hired to track down a missing college kid, but when they get to his house all they find are some TV's and a collection of VHS tapes containing strange, horrible tapes of the paranormal in this follow on to the 2012 cult hit.

 

TRICK 'R TREAT (2007)

Thursday, 31 October 2013 23:06

 

The Buzz:

 

     An anthology film that tells the story of a number of spooky, yet fun, tales that take place within the same town on the same Halloween night. Trick R' Treat also finally gives us the first real Halloween mascot in Sam, a small child-like Jack-O-Lantern headed demon with a love of tricks and treats and enforces the spirit of the holiday with a rather violent tendency. While this movie is super fun to watch, it is not by any means appropriate for children. But put this in after the kids go to bed or when it's just you and some friends and try not to have a smile on your face by the time the credits roll!

 

BATS (1999)

Friday, 25 October 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

        A pair of bats infected with a virus to make them lethal killing machines have escaped, and now swarms of bats are terrorizing the Texas countryside. And now it's up to a bat expert, her assistant, and the local sheriff to stop them before the virus spreads across the country.

 

TROLL 2 (1990)

Friday, 18 October 2013 01:36

The Buzz:

 

     Young Joshua and his family are planning a trip to Nilbog to get away for awhile. However, young Joshua discovers, just as most of you have, that Nilbog is “goblin” spelled backwards! From there on it's Josh trying to save his family from a town of shape changing, magic using... vegetarians? All while taking advice from his dead grandfather... or maybe a sociopathic hallucination; it's difficult to be sure. And he does this all by peeing on their food, eating a bologna sandwhich, touching rocks, and performing acts of necromancy.

 

IDLE HANDS (1999)

Thursday, 17 October 2013 00:26

The Buzz:

 

     It's Halloween and stoner high school student Anton (Devon Sawa) can't find his parents (Fred Willard and Connie Ray). Mostly this is because they were killed in the night by the murderer terrorizing his town. When Anton and his buddies Pnub and Mick (Elden Henson and Seth Green) realize all evidence points to Anton they soon realize that his hand has become possessed by a demon. His hand murder's his friends, they return from the dead, his hand tries to kill his girlfriend (Jessica Alba), and generally blood and comedy ensue as Anton hunted down by a Druidic priestess played by Vivica Fox (funny, she doesn't LOOK Druish...).

 

LET THE RIGHT ONE IN (2008)

Tuesday, 15 October 2013 02:12

The Buzz:

    Oskar is a bit of an outcast. He's 12 and doesn't have many friends. He spends most of his time fantasizing about revenge on the bullies at school. Then he meets Eli (pronounced Ee-Lee), a strange girl his age who moves in to the apartment next door. Eli seems a bit of an outcast herself and the two become fast friends. But there is more to Eli than even Oskar is aware, she's a vampire. This Swedish film based on a novel of the same name has become the quintessential modern day vampire story with beautiful imagery and a romance that, yes... is still better than Twilight.

 

NIGHT WATCH (2004)

Friday, 27 September 2013 16:07

The Buzz:

        Superhuman “Others” live among us, split between the forces of Light and Darkness. Long ago during a great battle between the two forces, a truce was struck so that neither force could directly influence the mortal world. Each side would patrol the other; the Light setup the Night Watch, and the side of Dark set up the Day Watch, each making sure the other didn't break the truce.

 

ANTIVIRAL (2012)

Friday, 20 September 2013 18:12

The Buzz:

        In some incredibly unhappy part of our supposed future, celebrity-worship has reached what I would normally call epidemic proportions, but considering the theme of this film that would be unfortunate. Fans who wish to become closer to their favorite celebrities will now pay exorbitant amounts of money to be injected with diseases from those celebrities' bodies. Our main character (calling him the protagonist just doesn't feel right with me) works for an esteemed clinic providing these services, and also makes money by stealing the various diseases and smuggling them out by infecting himself, so that they may be sold by piracy groups. Unfortunate events ensue.

 

DRAG ME TO HELL (2009)

Friday, 20 September 2013 13:14

The Buzz

 

     Writers Sam and Ivan Raimi pair up with director Sam Raimi to make a classic shock horror film starring Alison Lohman and Justin Long in the style of classic Sam Raimi. Hits tons of tropes ranging from gypsy curses, house cat sacrifice, and a foul-mouth possessed goat. Although it has powerful subtext if you're looking for it (as all worthwhile horror movies should), it never takes itself seriously and produces tons of genuine laughs as well as creep-out and gross-out horror. This may be the most competent PG-13 horror movie ever produced, and it is one of my favorites.

About Us

Tanked Matinee is the place to go for good drinking movies. What do we mean by that? Simply speaking, we evaluate and recommend entertainment media based on how much fun it is to watch with friends on the sofa and a cold beer in hand.

Everyone knows "The Godfather" is a great movie, but is it as great to drink with as "Roadhouse?" We can appreciate "Citizen Kane" as a masterpiece of cinema, but is it as good a centerpiece for your party as "Santa Clause Conquers the Martians?"

Tanked Matinee appreciates film as art, but when you're kicking back on Friday night with a tall Rum & Coke, you're not looking for art, man, you want to be entertained. We're here to recommend the best movies for your night in, whether it's a big party, small get-together, or just a quiet night alone with a bottle of wine or three.
