What Movie Wednesday!


This past Wednesday, I started a new interactive feature for my blog- "What Movie Wednesday"!

"What is this new feature about," you ask?  Well, let me tell you.

Every Wednesday, I will be posting on my Facebook group page, my personal Facebook Profile, Google +,  and Twitter a bit of a poll.  In the poll, I will be asking YOU, the reader, which of three possible horror movies I should watch that night for review.  At that point, you will then be able to vote on which movie I watch.  The movie that gets the most votes wins (natrually).

The polls will be posted at 12:00 am (Pacific Standard Time) every Wednesday morning, and voting will continue until 7:00 pm that same day.  At that time, I will announce the winning movie, and begin watching it.  I'll also be doing a bit of a running commentary of the movie on Twitter while watching it.  The next day, I will sit down and write my review of the movie here.  At the bottom of the review, I will acknowledge all those that voted. If you voted via Twitter, the shout out will also include a link to your own Twitter Account.

Why am I doing this?  Well, I don't want my blog to simply be "blah blah blah..."  I want those that actively read my blog to be a part of it- and contribute to the content on it.  I'm hoping that by doing this, readers will feel comfortable coming forward and saying, "I'd like you to watch this, and review it!"  This feature, I believe will also bring a sense of fun, spontanaiety, and uniqueness to this blog.

The next "What Movie Wednesday," will be March 7th- so keep an eye out for the notices.  I post the notice throughout the day on my Facebook Profile.  If you join my Group Page, you'll get an invite message for it- in addition to my posting about it on the page itself.  On Twitter, make sure you watch out for the hashtag #WhatMovieWeds.

I'm looking forward to making "What Movie Wednesday," a fun, regular part of "The Corner of Terror," and seeing you all vote during it!

The Amityville Horror (1979)

When it comes to movies, the horror genre is one of the few where houses are as much a character as the humans.  Certain houses are immediately identifiable with certain movies: The Meyers house from John Carpenter's " Halloween "; Nancy's house from Wes Craven's " A Nightmare on Elm St "; Norman Bate's house from Alfred Hitchcock's " Psycho "; and The Lutz home from any " Amityville Horror " movie. George and Kathy Lutz have just moved into 112 Ocean Ave- where a brutal mass murder had occured just the year before.  Soon, however, their dream house becomes a house of horrors and the couple must fight to protect their children from the evil that resides with them... and keep it from causing history to repeat itself... There has always been controversy regarding the background for the movie, since it's based on a book documenting the experiences of the real-life Lutz family.  Because of this controversy,

Meridian: Kiss of the Beast (1990)

Sometimes, a director/producer will surprise you- such was the case during " Terrorpolooza 2012 " when I watched Charles Band's " Meridian: Kiss of the Beast " Catherine Bomarzini has come home after her father's death.  Needing company, she asks Gina to stay with her.  Soon, the two meet a wondering troupe of performers that Catherine invites to dinner at her castle. Catherine find herself pulled into a love triangle and an ancient curse that only she can break. After watching movies like " Evil Bong ", and " Demonic Toys ", I really wasn't expecting too much from this Charles Band movie- but I was pleasantly surprised by it. The story is actually quite interesting with lots of potential for eerie scenes, and character development.  It's a nice twist on the classic " Beauty and the Beast " story.  It's a bit slower than most of Band's other works, but moves smoothly and draws you with it. I have to ad

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018)

Sometimes, sequels are better than the original.  Sometimes, sequels are as good as the original.  Often, sequels are worse than the original... While rummaging through an abandoned house looking for scrap to sell, Sonny and Sam come across a mysterious chest in a hidden room.  Inside the chest is a strange, locked book.  Opening the book releases Slappy the Dummy... and all the chaos that follows him. Soon, it's up to these two young men, and Sonny's sister Sarah to save the town from the haunted Halloween... I wanted to like this movie.  I wanted this movie to give me something different from the previous one.  Really, I did. The story and plot is essentially the same as the first movie with only minor tweaks.  Because of this, I found my attention waning from moment to moment.  The scenes with the garden gnomes, and the gummy bears were enjoyable though. The characters aren't bad, but rather cookie cutter for teen type family horror movies. The acting was
