As much as I love to see more animated horror (especially western animated horror, since that’s especially rare), this hipster South Park horror cartoon thing ain’t it for me.

I had this one hyped up a lot for me, and honestly I don’t think it lived up to the expectations. On the positive side, I think the gore and the intensity were pretty solid, and I felt for the main family as they went through this traumatic experience, but on the other hand it really doesn’t do much to make you care about the villains, it kinda just says “look how fucked up these people are” and pushes the…
Man, it’s been ages since I’ve engaged with any Dead Space media, and probably over a decade since I’ve seen this movie. Given that this was a straight-to-video tie in animated movie that was made to be released alongside the original game, this definitely feels a bit undercooked and slapped together, and the general mood of the movie kinda clashes with the atmosphere of the game. But it’s still an entertaining 75 minute movie with some cool body horror and gore, and man I still wish they incorporated that plasma chainsaw thing into the games.

Been meaning to watch this ever since I heard about the UK release a few years ago. Sadly it still hasn’t made its way to the states and the only version I was able to find was raw, so I don’t really know what anyone in the movie was saying. But aside from some potential missing context, this film was a hoot. Cheesy in all of the ways Evil Dead is meant to be, with an added flavor of Japanese haunted house.

I read that the animation was awful. I chose to watch anyway, assuming that people on the internet were exaggerating as they are wont to do. But man... it’s rough to watch. There’s some cool gore in some scenes, but ultimately the movie doesn’t do much to expand beyond its premise. A neat idea that could have been a much more entertaining film with a bigger budget. Honestly just watch the Romero original instead.

As someone with largely peripheral familiarity with the Crypt Keeper and TFtC, I don’t think this hit as hard for me as it might for people who are more familiar, but overall this was a fun little gross out horror flick. Billy Zane hamming it up was entertaining.
Movie 19/37 of 31 Nights of Horror 2021.
I think this one had some interesting ideas that I haven’t seen attempted in a Halloween movie before, which I think puts this one slightly above the 2018 movie for me. Only real issue was the weird pacing and that this whole film was clearly a second act.
