    Vampires

    Right off the bat I'll say that John Carpenter's Vampires is a real mixed bagβ€”mainly due to some bad & wasted casting and a fizzling storyβ€”but it's fairly serviceable. It should be no surprise that Carpenter's score and direction are the best parts.

    The first twenty minutes are pretty strong, and might actually be perfect if it weren't for the miscastings (more on that shortly) and the unnecessary, distracting dissolves in the motel massacre sceneβ€”which is otherwise a brutal and kick-ass…

    The authenticity of the gimmick is commendable, but this was a huge disappointment.

This is the type of movie where you let any bits of confusion wash over you; just vibe along to the sleek,…

    Unsurprisingly, the inspired, more-novella-accurate casting of Jamie Clayton as the new Pinhead in the upcoming Hellraiser remake made me desire a rewatch of the Clive Barker-directed original.

    While it is undoubtedly rough in places and not as good as Barker's own novella The Hellbound Heart (save for the changes to Kirsty's character, which is a big improvement), Hellraiser is still an absolute horror classic with some of the greatest imagery, characters, ideas, lines, and musical-stings in all of horror.
