Halloween Challenge Day 1: Hammer Horror Dracula Series

I'm a big fan of vampire movies and I'll most likely be watching a few more of them before the challenge is over. But I’ve always been meaning to watch all of the Hammer Dracula films starring the great Christopher Lee. So I guess now would be the perfect time to do it.
In total there are 8 films in the series, 7 of which Lee starred as Dracula--Horror of Dracula, Brides of Dracula, Dracula: Prince of Darkness, Dracula Has Risen from the Grave, Taste the Blood of Dracula, Scars of Dracula, Dracula A.D. 1972, The Satanic Rites of Dracula

Since watching them in a short time frame they all kind of blur together for me. Are they great vampire movies? Not particularly. The plots of the movies are really all the same. Dracula comes back from the dead ALWAYS going after the women. Most of the time they are in their nightgowns with over exposed cleavage. He usually manages to make at least one his vampire bride sidekick. But he never fares well with getting a second one, cause she usually always has a boyfriend/husband that comes and rescues her at the last minute and kills him.
Really the best part about any of these movies is Christopher Lee’s performance as Dracula. Most of the time he just bares his fangs and hisses. But he looks scary enough with just his fangs and blood-shot eyes, plus he barely speaks. He is one of the most terrifying vampires in cinema history, at least in my opinion he is. And for that reason alone I think the movies are worth a watch.I have two particular favorites out of the series Brides of Dracula and Taste the Blood of Dracula
Brides of Dracula actually does not star Christopher Lee. And the "Dracula" character isn't even in it. Instead it has a totally different actor in the main vampire role. What I liked about this movie is that its story is different from the other films. It's actually more of a Van Helsing movie which is played by Peter Cushing, who did return from the first movie.
Taste the Blood of Dracula is kind of a revenge movie. It still has the same plot structure like the rest of the films, but what I think makes this movie cool was the way Dracula was resurrected. It's pretty badass and kind of gross at the same time.

After Hours Ep.4: Breaking Bad

This is a short episode of the After Hours podcast but we had a lot to talk about. Breaking Bad is an awesome show and if you haven't been paying attention it's getting ready to end for good. I watched the latest episode this past Sunday (5.13 - To'hajiilee) along with my brother Ryan and our friend Wes. If you haven't caught up with the show or the latest episode be warned this is a SPOILER episode. We plan to do a follow up show to this once the series ends in three weeks.

After Hours Ep.3: Street Fighter vs. Mortal Kombat/ You're Next

This week on After Hours we have a triple feature! 

First up on the show I sit down with my video game loving brother Ryan, and his girlfriend Carrie, to talk about Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. We get into why Street Fighter is so awesomely bad (pretty much everything), and why Mortal Kombat is a vastly superior video game movie. Also forgive my brother, he was playing video games while recording this review.

Next, Dave returns and we both talk about seeing the new slasher movie You're Next! Be warned this is a SPOILER review/discussion, so if you haven't seen the movie yet don't listen.

Also we get into a lengthy discussion on other good/bad horror remakes. And horror directors we would like to punch in the face, I'm talking to you John Carpenter! And end with a final debate on whether Freddy Krueger was a child murderer or molester?

After Hours Ep.1: The Conjuring

Me and my sisters saw The Conjuring (2013).

In the first After Hours episode me and my two sisters (Raven & Mandie), discuss our thoughts on The Conjuring. Well... sort of. We all liked it, but we tended to keep bringing up the creepy demon doll featured in the movie called Annabelle. In the movie the doll is pretty creepy. I don't see how any child would have wanted a doll that looked like that. Then I found out, like all movies, Hollywood tends to exaggerate on things. In real life demon doll Annabelle was really an old Raggedy Ann doll. Not so scary.

Also there are books written by the oldest Perron daughter that document all the crazy stuff that happen during the 10 years her family lived in the house. The books are called House of Darkness, House of Light, by Andrea Perron. There are three books in total. And I want to read them badly to know what really happened!

Overall, the movie was pretty good! All three of us have actually seen it twice already in theaters. I don't agree that it's as scary as The Exorcist, but the first time I watched it I was on the edge of my seat. Second time around it wasn't as scary since I knew where all the scary parts happened. If you like horror movies, in particular haunted house movies, then The Conjuring is one you should check out.
