Really not going to bother writing an intro for this one, we only have two months left until the end of 2013 and I’m here to list off the top 5 films that I’m looking forward to seeing in that time frame.
Open grave looks like it could be something cool. Not a movie that I feel will wow me and become my favorite of the year but like I said it could be cool. I really hope they don;t try to involve too many swerves because the premise is just weird enough to catch my eye. A guy wakes up with no memory of who is he (original I know but hold on a moment); crazy thing is though he wakes up in a pit full of corpses. That should be crazy enough but when he scrambles out and trys to find help he runs into other people who are dealing with the same memory issue and needless to say they aren’t happy.
The draw for some people will be Sharlto Copley who was in District 9 and Elysium. I liked District 9 enough to watch it twice so that kind of says something considering that it isn’t normally my kind of film.
The Last Days on Mars seems a little like an alien rip off. Now I doubt that there will be a little alien running around after it rips outs of someone chest but some of the similarities are definitely there. A group of astronauts have proof of life on Mars, its microscopic but its there. The issue comes in when one of the crew members dies and gets reanimated by the organisms that they found. My big hope for this movie is that it is better than Ghost of Mars.
Yeah it may be nothing special sounding and chances it it wont be but it has Leiv Schreiber and I really like him as an actor. Even in the Scream movies he was good… several movies that were bad which he was in I still liked his acting job despite how bad the movie was. Here’s hoping.
After the rough month I’ve hard with kidney stones and surgery it would be nice to watch a horror movie and laugh. This is why this movie is on my list, we have cheerleaders that are brought back from the dead (or so it looks like in the trailer) and seeking revenge for….. something., I don’t know exactly what is going on in this movie and I can;t say I recognize any of the actors at a glace but I need a good laugh so even if this movie is horrible I should at least be able to laugh how bad it is.
The day before Christmas Insidious Chapter 2 comes out on DVD. Now this is a little weird sounding but I haven’t watch the first one yet, bought it last week for $5 at Walmart, but I’m excited for this movie for other reasons. One is that it is James Wan last horror film and I really like his direction style, his writing partner I’m not as high on but I can live with some dodgy storytelling sometimes as long as it somewhat holds together. The other reason I am excited is that the last one was a sleeper hit and that means that people are actually going to pay attention to this one. The more eyes on the horror genre when there is respectable people at the helm. the better.

I have a soft spot for slasher style films and this looks like it should be right up my alley. They excitement for this one is that a movie in this sub genre that will actually have a high names actress in a major role. I’m not a fan of the twilight series and actually believe it hurt the horror industry because now everything has to be sexy vampires but if you ask people a lot of them liked the actress who played Alice. Ashley Greene could possibly draw people and the level of unknown with this movie makes me want to know more about. This movie could have a ton of upside or fail horribly right away, I guess we will see.
