Nobody stands a chance in this franchise! The biker gangs, the campers, the sex entwined lovers … Jason plays no favorites.
This is a real fun one. It’s more f the same formula everybody loves, even despite the low ratings. We get an interesting look into what Jason “sees” in his mother in this one. I love the film. I think I rate it higher than the critics because I go in expecting little or nothing. It’s mindless fun. As the 80’s saying went, “No brains, no headache.”
This film is fun like any slasher, and this one apparently write the book on them.
This one had the potential of being scary and thrilling. Unfortunately, it’s way less than that on both counts. Hillary Swank looks very hot in it (The scene when she’s walking with the pregnant woman, nice shirt choice) but I’m afraid that isn’t enough to keep my interest the whole way through.
Like I said, it had potential, as it is they took the very slow route with the pot and I lost interest about halfway through. Having said that, Hilary Swank is always a good reason to see a movie.
I’m not much for Exorcism type films. This is an ok one. First watch I really wasn’t too impressed. The multiple personality angle was my favorite thing about it. As a horror film, it’s a must see. If you’re looking for much else, I’d skip it.
You can’t do retro until you go full retro. In the 1970’s, mental illness wasn’t all the buzz like it is today. I doubt most homes knew what manic-depression really meant, or depression for that matter. Joker goes a little too deep in that in the writing.
You can’t have an amazing drama/horror flick when it’s paid for by Marvel and is indeed a comics flick. Joker starts out amazing as a drama/horror but crashes in the end into a Marvel fuselage. This will please the young and confound the older (like me). As you can see Joker has an identity complex.
I still liked it a lot. Hear more of my impressions of the film on my podcast The DRP Film Podcast: Listen here: –> thedrpodcast.com/joker/
My audio review of joker. As I tell my son, I needed to speak to my microphone a little after seeing it. This is MY experience of this quite remarkable and wonderful film. It is of course imperfect, just like Joker himself. 8/10.
After her young son is killed in a tragic accident, a woman learns of a ritual which will bring him back to say goodbye, but when she disobeys a sacred warning, she upsets the balance between life and death.
Creepy, luxuriant horror settings and a decent demon story make this film a fun time! I have seen so many bad horror movies, this one is a good one! If you like horror and haven’t had an experience with this one, walk unafraid! It’s a good one.
I like it that the director did Strangers: Prey at Night. It is a far better film but TOSOTD is pretty good too. I have said I think Prey at Night is one of my favorite horror movies. I watched it again after seeing this and it still is. Enjoy this one, it works on all the levels.
