It is a truth universally acknowledged that a horror movie with a domestic gross amounting to a small fortune must be in line for a string of sequels of ever-diminishing quality. Almost all of them are terrible, being licenses to print money and all. But every now and then, by some strange alchemy, one of them.. isn’t. Here are five of our favorites, and one that we’re clearly over thinking.
Another week, another favourite film, another bloodthirsty alien rampaging through an Antarctic research site. Wait, what? Alex Mullane is armed with a flamethrower, a bit of wire and a bloody great beard, and he’s here to defend the both impeccable taste of the BFF crew and his favourite film – John Carpenter’s The Thing. Obviously, spoilers will abound.
After a long and challenging week it’s finally Friday. The weekend is nigh and it’s the perfect time to indulge in a good old drinking game. But this is not just any old drinking game. No. For this drinking game you’ll need to be as unflappable and calm as James Bond, because if not there’s a chance this could get a little out of hand.
It’s National Priest Day 2012 everyone! Congratulations, priests of the world! You earned it! Wait, what’s that? There’s no such thing as National Priest Day? Well then why is there so much priest stuff going on at the cinema at the moment? Like this thing and this other nonsense? Whatever the reason, BFF is proud to bring you a list of the top ten sexiest clergymen from the world of cinema. DISCLAIMER: This is the top ten list that the Vatican DOESN’T want you to see. Or whatever, they probably aren’t aware of its existence.
Perhaps you’d noticed, but multiplex cinemas are starting to get really, really pricey. This would be fine if the experience was improving, but it’s not. It’s getting worse. After one too many sub-par screenings, maybe it’s time to find somewhere else to get our fix..
One of the many ways in which Hollywood have flogged a thousand dead horses, the reboot is not only alive and well but getting faster. We take a look at a few that actually worked, and a few more that made our eyes bleed. Beware; there will be many highs, lows and gratuitous wrestling analogies.
Children are frightening. It’s probably their tiny hands. Whilst horror movies seem to utilise the ‘scary child trope’ a little too frequently these days, it’s worth remembering the good times of horrible, horrible children that wanted you dead (or at least maimed in some way). This top ten list encompasses the best of the nasty tykes that remind us all why birth control is so important.
This is the age of the remake, when it seems nothing is sacred. These are perhaps the most untouchable films , and what we think the suits would try to do if they got hold of them. Read on for some truly horrifying scenarios…..
How do you judge the greatest horror film ever made? Is it how near you come to running out the room, sweating? Is it the intensity of the nightmares that follow? Or is it the film that sparks off agorophobia? If that is the criteria, then Big Momma’s House gets my vote.
