What’s up horror freaks, it’s The Raven here breaking Mr. Disgusting’s cardinal rule of anyone posting on here unless someone sends him a box of Trojans and Motion Lotion. I am over here bringing you what our sister site Freeze Dried Movies does every week, and that is The Weekend Freeze. For those of you who don’t know it is where we break down all the movies that are opening up that weekend. Well in the case of this weekend it is all horror movies, so that is why you all get a very bloody & disgusting edition of The Weekend Freeze. Enjoy!
In this edition of The Blood Soaked Weekend Freeze:
Up first is Hide and Seek (review), which stars Robert De Niro, Dakota Fanning, Famke Janssen, Elisabeth Shue, Dylan Baker, Robert John Burke, Alicia Harding, Amy Irving, Melissa Leo and James McCaffrey. Hide and Seek is about young Emily Callaway, and her games of Hide and Seek with an imaginary friend named Charlie have become anything but simple and innocent. Instead, she finds herself in the middle of a series of increasingly nightmarish acts that even her father David cannot stop. Who – or what – is Charlie? David wonders. How can an “imaginary” entity have this kind of hold on her? Maybe Charlie is not imaginary at all, but instead a flesh-and-blood, malevolent presence? Academy Award winner Robert De Niro stars as David Callaway, a troubled father and widower in the suspense-thriller “Hide and Seek,” and Dakota Fanning portrays his young daughter Emily, who is hiding an incredible secret. As the story opens, Callaway’s wife Alison (Amy Irving) dies suddenly, traumatizing Emily. Father and daughter move to Upstate New York to distance Emily from the memories of her life in Manhattan with her mother. Soon thereafter, Emily develops a friendship with Charlie. At first, David sees Charlie as a positive way for Emily to express herself, but a series of terrifying acts lead him to imagine the unimaginable: Charlie may actually be real… and if so, he must be stopped. Hide and Seek comes to us from Fox Studios and is Rated R. You can view the trailer for this flick here.
Next up is Alone in the Dark which is yet another horror movie based on a freaking video game from Uwe Boll. Let’s face it people Uwe hasn’t won over any fans recently with House of the Dead and news that he is creating his own story for Bloodrayne and not sticking to the story we have all grown to know and love. You would figure the man would get tired of making movies about video games, but alas he has not. Alone in the Dark stars Christian Slater, Stephen Dorff, Tara Reid, Will Sanderson, Ed Anders, Robert Bruce, Daniel Cudmore, Mike Dopud, John Fallon, Catherine Lough Haggquist, Ho Sung Pak, Malcom Scott, Darren Shahlavi and Francoise Yip and is about Edward Carnby (Christian Slater), a detective of the paranormal, unexplained and supernatural, investigates the recent, mysterious death of a friend with clues leading to “Shadow Island,” that brings him face to face with bizarre horrors that prove both psychologically disturbing and lethal, as he discovers that evil demons worshiped by an ancient culture called the Abskani are planning on coming back to life in the 21st century to once again take over the world. Sounds like a winner right? Well the cast seems promising so lets hope Uwe delivers on this one. You can view the trailer here and make up your own mind, and if you like it or hate it you can either say thanks or blame Lion’s Gate for the picture. Alone in the Dark is Rated R.
So there you have it. Drink a six pack, grab a hold of your friends and go watch some people get bloody this weekend. While I am at it, for the love of god send Mr. D. some Motion Lotion, he is chaffing for crying out loud.
