I'm a bit behind on my log...
On Saturday, I was tired as hell, so I opted for an old, reliable choice.
For those unfamiliar with it, Night of the Creeps is a tribute to "b-movies", mixing a bit of 50's sci-fi with 80's horror.
It aims to please the horror fans: pretty much every character takes its name from a famous genre film director (Carpenter, Cronenberg, Raimi, Landis, Cameron, Hooper, ...), there's plenty of one liners and silly dialogues, a catchy soundtrack (including a couple of Stan Ridgway tunes), well known character actors (like Tom Atkins), and an overall fun attitude, making it a good flick to watch with a group of people.
Like I mentioned before, my wife doesn't like to watch older films, so we ended up watching (in my case, rewatching) Sorority Row yesterday.
This one is supposed to be a "reimagining" of The House on Sorority Row, the 80's slasher film, hence the title. It's also painfully mediocre. Despite being a 2009 film, it's your typical 90's post-Scream slasher film, but at least throws in some minor nudity like most 80's efforts.
Hilariously enough, despite not really enjoying it, it's probably one of the films I've watched the most during my Halloween marathons in recent years, for a silly reason. I received two copies of the Blu-Ray, one damaged, and a replacement. I used the case of the damaged copy to place another film, and since then, the disc of the damaged copy has remained inside my Blu-Ray player, essentially working as a "dust cover" of sorts.
So, in recent years, whenever it's close to midnight, and I need to find a film to watch fast (to start watching it before the day ends; rules are rules), I start this one, since it's already inside the player.
