2001 MANIACS: FIELD OF SCREAMS (2010)

Friday, 05 April 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

        Loosely following 2005 film 2001 Maniacs, the demented residents of Pleasant Valley are having trouble finding victims for the annual Guts N' Glory Jamboree. They take their act on the road, where they run across the cast and crew of a reality TV show. Things go pretty much as expected from there.

 

HOOD OF HORROR (2006)

Wednesday, 27 March 2013 23:27

The Buzz:

     The one and only Snoop D O double G (This was before the whole “Lion” fiasco, so it’s ok to say it) leads the audience through three tales of horror.  Snoop is turned into a Hound Of Hell after selling his own soul in order to bring his sister back to life. This gives him the power to determine who goes to Heaven and who is sent to Hell. The stories each revolve around a single person who has the power to do great good, but instead fuck it all up and pay HEAVILY as Snoop Dogg makes it rain on dem hoes. 

DEMON KNIGHT (1995)

Thursday, 28 March 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

     There is a constant battle between good and evil that rages unseen by most everyone in the world, but there are two people who fight that battle at every turn.  There is an artifact, a key to be precise that contains the blood of all who protect the side of good and light against the darkness, and this is the only weapon that matters.  When the stars align The Collector can unleash the power of demons and take over the world, but first the key must be destroyed.

 

 

 

 

SLITHER (2006)

Friday, 29 March 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

     In a sleepy town in South Carolina something strange is happening.  A bright light in the sky one night leads to a series of strange events leading to the end of life as the town knows it.  As with most “it came from outer space” films a meteor crashes to earth and the first thing that we do is touch it.  The toucher in this case is Michael Rooker, who is great in his role as a sleazy car salesm…human being.  After he is infected by the parasite he creates a “mother” for them and it is up to his wife (Elizabeth Banks) and her former lover (Nathan Fillion) to save the town.  They fail.

2001 MANIACS (2005)

Tuesday, 19 March 2013 19:36

The Buzz:

        Once again, some horny teenagers are off to Spring Break and run into trouble along the way. This time they get sidetracked by a detour sign into the little town of Pleasant Valley, where the "friendly" southerners take them into and make them honored guests of the "Guts and Glory Jubilee." But things quickly take a turn for the sinister, and the people of Pleasant Valley turn out to be something other than what they appear in this equal parts horror-comedy.

 

[REC] 3: GENESIS (2012)

Friday, 15 March 2013 20:09

The Buzz:

        The [Rec] series continues into its third chapter, but this time at an Spanish wedding instead of the apartment building from movies 1 & 2. Zombie demons and shaky cam commence in this somewhat quirky little horror film.

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (2004)

Thursday, 14 March 2013 17:16

The Buzz:

Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1986 stage adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera has become an iconic love story, synonymous with romance, beauty, and fantasy in the hearts of countless women. This is actually a real shame, because from a man's perspective, Phantom can basically be summed up as "Friend Zone - The Musical." It's the story of a smart, talented guy with lots of cool hobbies who provides years of kindness and support to the girl he's into, but is forsaken in favor of some rich pretty boy, merely because he just happens to be hideous to look upon, lives in a basement, and is not, technically, employed.*

[* Editor's Note: Not that I'm bitter or anything.]

But, close to home as this story may hit for some guys who are definitely not me, the 2004 movie version is still a beautiful, if controversial, retelling of arguably the most important show of its theatrical generation (or however theater time is measured... epochs, maybe?). For those of you who enjoy music, pagaentry, and romance, but can't spring for tickets to a Broadway revival, this film is absolutely worth seeing.

THE FRIGHTENERS (1996)

Saturday, 09 March 2013 19:24

The Buzz:


     Michael J. Fox plays a psychic investigator named Frank Bannister who can see ghosts after a tragic car accident that left his wife dead. When a serial killer returns from Hell to rack up his kill count once again Bannister must put an end to it at all costs. 

 

ZOMBIELAND (2009)

Friday, 15 March 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

     This could be considered the pre-eminent zombie comedy/horror film of all time but unfortunately Return of the Living Dead already exists.  The film centers around four strangers who are just trying to survive the zombie apocalypse and even though they try to do it alone they discover it’s better with friends.  In essence the story is National Lampoon’s: Vacation with zombies; the ultimate goal on this cross country trip is to go to an amusement park and to make merry along the way.  This film does something that not many other ones do; it makes a zombie film for everyone.

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.
