Good movies, anyone? review By Adomas 7B
5. „Beetle juice“ A 1988 American horror comedy directed by Tim Burton. The plot revolves around a recently deceased young couple who become ghosts, haunting their former home, and a devious ghost named Betelgeuse (pronounced Beetlejuice) from the Netherworld tries to scare away the new inhabitants permanently. It‘s not very scary but the plot and special FX (according to when the movie was made) are pretty decent.
Fun fact: Even though the movie is called “Beetlejuice,” the character only has 17 minutes of screen time out of a 92-minute running time.
4. Alien A 1979 science-fiction horror film directed by Ridley Scott. The film’s title refers to a highly aggressive extraterrestrial creature „Xenomorph“ that stalks and kills the crew of a spaceship. This creature produces infants by bursting out of a mans chest (it is very messy). the „Xenomorph“ are very scary, and you really do not want to meet one in a dark alley. O, did I mention that they have a mouth inside a mouth, acid for blood, steel-like skin and a long pointy tail for stabbing. The special FX are perfect, awesome time watching it.
3.The shining A 1980 British-American psychological horror film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick. The film is based on Stephen King’s 1977 novel The Shining. In the film, Jack Torrance, a writer and recovering alcoholic, takes a job as an off-season caretaker at the isolated Overlook Hotel. His young son has psychic abilities and is able to see things from the past and future, such as the ghosts who haunt the hotel. After settling in, the family is trapped in the hotel by a snowstorm, and jack become influenced by a ghostly presence, becomes insane and tries to kill his family. I was pretty scary and weirdly a bit funny. So i recommend watching it.
2.Predator A 1987 American science fiction action horror film directed by John McTiernan. It stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as the main protagonist and a leader of elite special forces team who are on a mission to rescue hostages from guerrilla territory in Central America. Kevin Peter Hall co-stars as the antagonist, a technologically advanced alien, secretly stalking and hunting the group. He has blades on his arms, cloaking devises, thermal vision, self-destruct bombs and a very ugly face (ughhh). They don‘t care about the food, they only care about the thrill of the hunt and collecting skulls as trophies. The movie was very gripping and awesome. Plus Alien and Predator had a crossover, double awesome
Fun fact: Optimus Prime (from „Transformers“) and the predator has the same. Peter Cullen, who is uncredited in Predator, provided the voice for both.
1. A nightmare on Elm street A 1984 American supernatural slasher horror film written and directed by Wes Craven, and the first film of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.Set in the fictional Midwestern town of Springwood, Ohio, the plot revolves around several teenagers who are stalked and killed in their dreams (and thus killed in reality) by Freddy Krueger. The teenagers are unaware of the cause of this strange phenomenon, but their parents hold a dark secret from long ago. Sorry I can’t tell you more because I will spoil everything. Freddy is horrible has a glove with blades on fingers, a stupid cowboy hat, an ugly striped sweater and a burned-out face. This movie gave me the creeps and like all old movies it was funny.
