An [insert here] for Christmas!

While shepherds watched their schlock by night…



Don’t Look Under the Bed (1999, dir. Kenneth Johnson)

I’ll be honest guys: I didn’t finish watching Don’t Look Under the Bed. I made it halfway through and thought, this is enough. I’ve looked under the bed and there’s just no reason to continuing the film hiding under there.

All Hallows Eve (2016, dir. Charlie Vaughn)

“Are you watching a crap film again?”
“Yep, it’s called All Hallows Eve and the protagonist is called Eve Hallows
“Oh God.”

Welcome back everyone. Join me if you dare as we embark once more on the best and worst of Halloween flicks…

Troll 2 (1990, dir. Claudio Fragasso)

I know it’s a big name already but it’d be remiss of me not to bring up Troll 2 when I’m rounding up a list of the best and most ridiculous Halloween films out there. That and I can’t be bothered to finish watching Tower of Terror (1997, Steve Gutenburg is in it. It’s a bit too alright, can’t glean too much crap from it).

Titanic II (2010, dir. Shane van Dyke)

Fun fact: I started watching this film one evening, then rewatched it in full about a week later. Both times I made the same snarky comment in my notes about the extras who weren’t wearing bras (“budget so low can’t afford underwear”).  Continue reading “Titanic II (2010, dir. Shane van Dyke)”

Scooby Doo WWE WrestleMania Mystery (2014, dir. Brandon Vietti)

If there’s one mystery-solving gang we can rely on to adapt to the times, it’s Scooby and co. Heck, it’s a wonder Scoob is still alive after all this time but Mystery Inc. are always at the forefront of what the kids love. Fred’s ditched the ascot, Velma’s swapped a magnifying glass for a tablet, and WrestleMania is all the rage!!

When Evil Calls (2006, dir. Johannes Roberts)

Have you ever watched a film that’s so ugly and grotesque and full of violence that it makes you feel physically sick and you wonder what you’ve done to deserve this?

Beauty and the Beast (2009, dir. David Lister)

Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, this time they solve murders.

It’s a less traditional take on the classic fairytale, I’ll give them that. In fact, Syfy’s Beauty and the Beast seems a lot less informed by Disney and a lot more informed by some marketing team wondering how they can reuse those medieval outfits and the lone Oktoberfest wench costume.

The Worst Witch (1986, dir. Robert Young)

Pretty sure everybody who grew up in the 90s and 00s remembers watching Worst Witch/forgetting to turn the channel over whilst an episode was on. Heck, I even ended up at uni with one of the girls from the reboot (sadly not Rogue One star Felicity Jones though- shame). What you may not be so familiar with is the 80s feature length film about the hapless hex-caster.

Except you DO know this film because it gave us THIS:

Ghost Shark (2013, dir. Griff Furst)

Welcome to the small port town of Smallport (no you’re right, don’t strain yourself coming up with town names), a place haunted by ghostly sharks and teenagers who do not know how to react to death.

Luckily I’ve seen Ghost Shark‘s spiritual predecessor, Jaws, so I knew what to expect- right up until ghost shark gets shot and then revived by…voodoo…?
