In the horror genre, 2011 was a pretty good year. We had some good movies like Insidious, Troll Hunter, Paranormal Activity 3, Fright Night and a few others. We show you what you need to see if you haven’t already.
Insidious was one of those movies that you will remember for a while. They had scary spirits and even the horrifying demon with crazy lipstick on. We take a trip into the astral plane to recover the son who has gone missing. Possibly my favorite horror film of the year.
I enjoyed this film and so did my children. Government conspiracies to cover up the troll monsters that roam the countryside. We especially loved the use of troll musk to blend in with these beasts.
Paranormal Activity 3
Prequel to the very first Paranormal Activity, we get to see what happened to the sisters. With good humor and a great kitchen scene that was unexpected. I liked this one but it wasn’t as great as I originally expected. The story about the mysterious demon goes back even further then this prequel.
I grew up loving the original Fright Night and couldn’t wait to see this installment. I started watching Fright Night while at the same time comparing every second to the original, bad move. At the end of the movie, I found myself wanting to replay the movie and give it the proper chance it deserved.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Prequel to the Planet of the Apes, we have a great telling of an instant classic tale. Scientists looking to cure diseases begin testing on primates. The side effect is highly intelligent animals that revolt to take back their freedom. The graphics and storyline are top notch and any movie goer will love this film.
Tucker & Dale vs. Evil
Proving that not all country folk are looking to kill city folk. Tucker and Dale save a young woman from drowning. They leave a message saying that they have her and the city kids think that they have taken the girl hostage. What ensues is a terrific horror comedy that you need to see.
Attack the Block
Who ever thought that the kids of England were this bad. Aliens crash land and it is up to these kids to save the projects and take back their neighborhood. Great movie to watch after hours and have a laugh.
Final Destination 5
Not really that great in my opinion but some may have liked this one. I ended up watching this one because I have watched every other Final Destination in the franchise. The death scenes I thought were too simple and not well though out but not a bad movie overall.
