As the hunters stalk their bounty they are led to a small planet far away called Earth. The planet it perfect and teaming with life, enough to…

HMM Day 19 – Son Of Frankenstein

It’s a perfect display of man vs himself where the real monsters is not the monster himself, but the normal people around him that are driven by intellectual supremacy or revenge.

HMM Day 18 – Splinter

The film is an enjoyable monster flick set in a claustrophobic atmosphere. It doesn’t take itself all too seriously but never crosses over the line of hokey or schlock. The effects are awesome and don’t seem to appear overly campy or fake.

HMM Day 17 – The Crazies

You know what Hollywood hasn’t figured out? That remakes are generally a bad idea, especially with horror films. What is it that makes horror remakes so bad? Could be it be that the films they’re trying to recreate are special films. Made in a particular time period that reflected social fears and norms? What was…

HMM Day 16 – Last Shift

Last Shift is a movie that does a good job at delivering a tone that feels clinical and emotionless.

HMM Day 15 – Misery

The movie is a rollercoaster with your emotions which makes the end such a rewarding pay off. It’s amazing how a single person with no powers or scary features can strike so much fear. It’s a film that you will hold your breathe through the entire time and even in the end, when Paul fights for his freedom and life, we’re never truly sure if we can breathe.

HMM Day 13 – Bad Milo!

This movie is pretty much the Incredible Hulk… but with a small monster that comes out of the ass of our character.

HMM Day 12 – 28 Days Later

I have always viewed zombies as a next step of human evolution. If you think of zombies, they’re perfect organisms that don’t age or suffer from disease. Their drive is more in tuned with nature in the sense that they only eat and stay dormant. They obviously don’t kill each other and disregard things like race, religion or political position. They aren’t using up resources like oxygen, water or causing traffic that makes me late for work! Zombies are the ultimate progression in mankind.

HMM Day 11 – Mimic

When I was fifteen years, twenty pounds and no kids ago; I worked at a summer camp as a cabin counselor in West Virginia. The camp was called Camp Tomahawk and was deep in the forest, probably an hour or two outside of Baltimore. The two weeks of orientation were always the best because it…
