Horror Pack September 2017 - Unborn

Horror Pack September 2017 - Unborn

The Unborn (2010) – Retail Value $6.29

Do you like exorcism movies? Well, then this may be up your alley. I was excited to see Gary Oldman was in this one. I have loved him since I was a youngster and saw him in Frances Ford Copola’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula. His part is a bit smaller than I anticipated, but I still enjoyed this movie. The production value and special effects were great. The storyline had a lot of Jewish mysticism in it which I found interesting. Not my favorite, but entertaining enough.

Horror Pack September 2017 - The Amityville Horror

Horror Pack September 2017 - The Amityville Horror

The Amityville Horrors (2005) – Retail Value $9.98 (currently on sale for $3.74)

The Amityville Horrors that took place at 112 Ocean Ave in the seventies have become that of legends. This movie details the haunting of the Lutz family by the prior owners, the DeFeo family, murdered there thirteen months prior. This movie is loosely based on the events described in the book by Jay Anson as told by the Lutzs. The production quality is good, but this movie falls short in terms of the plot and script. It is a tad melodramatic, but not in a comical way. It was alright, but by no stretch great.

Horror Pack September 2017 - Prison of the Dead

Horror Pack September 2017 - Prison of the Dead

Prison of the Dead (2000) – Retail Value $7.99

I am a fan of Troma movies, so the lower the budget and the cheesier a horror movie is the better. I mean, I grew up watching Rhonda Shear on USA’s Up All Night, so what do you expect? My friend pointed out to me that this movie was produced by Charles Band, who also produced and wrote Terrorvision. That says a lot about the movie alone. This movie has an obnoxious plot about a spoiled rich guy that decides to have one of his friends fake his death to get their clique from high school to reunite in a haunted prison. The plot gets more ridiculous from there. The movie also is chock full of amazingly bad dialogue. One of my favorite lines was “This has the believability of a bad Baywatch Nights episode.” At least the writers were self-aware, right?

Horror Pack September 2017 - Wyrmwood

Horror Pack September 2017 - Wyrmwood

Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead – Retail Value $9.99

Wow, I am surprised that I enjoyed this movie so much! I think what I loved most about this film is it was reminiscent of Peter Jackson movies like Bad Taste and Dead Alive. I can’t be the only one that longs for that era of Peter Jackson to return. I know a lot of people are exhausted with zombie shows and movies, but I haven’t tired of this horror sub-genre. This movie was campy, but had decent special effects and was well written. I definitely would suggest giving it a view!

Verdict: Horror Pack had a mix of high and low budget movies from between 2000-2014 that were featured in this month’s box. I typically watch older horror movies ranging from the old Universal Monster movies to Troma to the Halloween and Nightmare Elm St series; so this was fun to expose myself to movies I probably never would have watched. The price is right too at $19.99 for four movies. By my calculations, that is $8.02 less than what one would pay if they bought them separately online. You can’t beat that!

Would you consider subscribing to Horror Pack?

  1. Mycatbutters, I have a friend in Chicago that makes these amazing comics, pins, and apparel. I tend to order a lot from her so she sends me a bunch of freebies. In one order she included RHONDA SHEAR TRADING CARDS. They are so good. Hahaha

  2. I can’t believe I forgot about Rhonda Shear on USA’s Up All Night! What a blast from the past.
