I liked both the first two, the third was...not that great.
The second issue of my not-for-profit horror zine/newsletter, 'Why Do I Like Stupid Horror Movies?' is available now at my blog, if you find a spare $2 in your Paypal account - go buy it please. I'd appreciate it . This issue comes with a mix-tape and a 'screenplay snippets' one-sheet. Also, I love trades (for anything, but especially zines).
I like the movie, but just the revealing of the killer really pissed me off. There's no way in hell that girl could do all that. If you watch the movie from the beginning, and just picture the whole time that it's Rebecca Gayheart in that coat, you'll be laughing your ass off.
The entire tale is being related as an urban legend, if you recall the group of students at the end of the flick. It was always the director's intention for the story to feel embellished.
Tourist Trap - 5.5/10
Tucker & Dale vs. Evil - 7/10
Lethal Weapon - 8/10
The Vanishing '88 - 8.5/10
The Masque of the Red Death - 6.5/10
Just watched this again and it is definitely one of my favourite slashers from the 90's. I really like the deaths based on urban legends and the cast is great (apart from the main girl who I couldn't really warm to). It had cameos from the likes of Danielle Harris, Brad Dourif and the legend that is Robert Englund.
Jamie Blanks didn't really direct anything decent after this flick.

I really liked this movie. I especially liked the irony of the Bonnie Rait song at the beginning ("Turn around...every now and then I fall apart...") - that was just hilarious. My son, who is now 14, saw it when he was little and he always called it The Walking Coat.
I watched about half of this the other day, didn't finish because I got sidetracked by so far, I really like the movie. I'll probably finish watching the rest later on today....[spoiler]Only made it up to the point where Danielle Harris gets killed.[/spoiler]
