We were told this was a horror movie, although it’s at least 70% straight Western. Which doesn’t mean we didn’t enjoy it. On the contrary, the star-studded cast and excellent writing made this a good watch and fine discussion.
The Expendables of Horror….what a promising concept, yet lousy execution. We didn’t have a lot of good things to say about this disappointing outing, based on a script from the late Gunnar Hansen (Leatherface). A rousing game of “spot the celebrity” helps to pass the time, even as you consider what a waste it is to assemble so many horror icons for this nonsense.
As a movie, The Wicker Man defies description. It doesn’t fit neatly into any genre category, encompassing elements of detective story, mystery, drama, horror, and even musical, all into one incredibly satisfying package. Come with us as we unlock this puzzle of a film and talk about its storied history as Christopher Lee’s most favorite performance of all time.
The movies within a movie make THIS movie a joy to watch. More than anything, we want to attend the horror-sci-fi movie marathon that is the centerpiece of this film. We just don’t want to die in the process.
