        A meteor hits off the coast a small Irish island, bringing with it blood-sucking aliens. And worse yet, an incoming storm cuts the island off from any outside assistance. How is this remote, polite community supposed to fend off the creatures and survive till help can arrive? By getting so rip-roaring drunk the creatures can't eat them of course!

The Buzz:

     This film is technically the first in a series with the sequel V/H/S 2, which has already been reviewed on our site.  The film is basically a montage of short films bracketed by a story that is supposed to explain why these tapes are being watched.  So it is hard to take this film and talk about it as a whole, but we can give it a shot.  If you have a thing for sci-fi and horror but a short attention span, this may very well be your cup of tea.

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!

     Christophe Gans (writer and director of Brotherhood of the Wolf) directs a highly atmospheric movie version of the first game in the highly successful Silent Hill series. A mother (Radha Mitchell) takes her daughter (somebody with a name) with severe mental issues to an abandoned town in western Pennsylvania to try to fix her; it turns out to be a fairly bad decision. There is also a subplot about Mitchell’s husband (Sean Bean) trying to find where they went, which explains a lot of the backstory and is helpful to the audience, but is largely unnecessary. If you’re a very serious horror fan or a fan of the series, this can be a very entertaining way to spend over two hours, but if you’re looking to get your party moving, the long runtime and bizarrely graphic violence may not be what you’re looking for. However, if this type of mood horror, graphic violence, and lack of jump-at-you scares is the type of film that really pushes your horror buttons, Silent Hill may end up being one of your favorites that way it ended up being one of mine.

     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.

The Buzz:

        Based (oh so incredibly loosely) on a series of short stories by H.P. Lovecraft, Re-Animator follows college medical student Dan Cain, who part-way into his third year meets the strange Herbert West. West is experimenting with a strange concoction that he believes can reanimate the dead. But their ghoulish experiments take a turn for the worse, and events quickly spiral out of the two student's control.

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.
