About this deal

lassen den Film qualitativ nicht an Spannung, Raffinesse und effekttechnischer Weiterentwicklung gewinnen. Well executed scares, clever twists, and earnest performances by Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch give this supernatural haunter serious heft. Joined by stoic psychic Mizuguchi ( Masahiro Kai), they head to the allegedly haunted house that belonged to Shinji’s father.

I'm checking out Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell (2012) purely because of the catchy title and how the movie marketing itself out to be The Japanese version of Evil Dead so naturally, as a big fan of low budget horror movies like I am this movie seems like it right up my alley and after 60 minutes I can tell you guys that this movie freaking deliver what it promises. Being hailed as "the Japanese Evil Dead" it's easy to see why since most of the story seems lifted right out of the original manuscript. The horror is intrinsic to a family coping with grief and loss, but it’s heightened to a horrifying degree thanks to Bertino’s distinct style and twisted vision of evil. Other than the main character having big muscles and using a few weights to impale corpses and smash body pieces, there isn’t really much of a body-building theme. Fukazawa wisely kept the film’s running time brief, it comes in at just over an hour, and after a bit of buildup makes sure that Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell never slows down enough for the viewer to start caring about the obviously rubber body parts crawling around.

Once they’re inside, the angry presence of a young woman won’t let them leave, and it’s not long before she starts possessing them. Upon learning that his father was planning to demolish his old house in Tokyo, the budding filmmaker opted to utilize the location for his 8mm love letter to the Evil Dead trilogy.

Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead films have obviously had just a slight cultural impact on the world of horror creating a tectonic plate level of shifting in the realm of horror films spawning an abundance of copycats, rip offs, cash grabs, and homages. However, that doesn’t stop a cop on the cusp of retirement and a slew of paranormal experts from trying to get to the bottom of a series of bizarre activities plaguing a Buenos Aires neighborhood.With creative and innovative scares aplenty, Terrified is the type of horror film that lives up to its name; it’s freaking petrifying. Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s supernatural chiller Pulse ( Kairo ) gives an eerie supernatural spin to the apocalypse. The situation is set up to give a ghost, and to get the cannon-fodder heroes into the house, and then let the death and the destruction commence. In this Korean film, a horror web show crew plans a live stream event in one of the country’s most infamous abandoned hospitals. The movie makes me smile every time I see a homage scene to Evil Dead 2 and how deadpan the characters look when they see how crazy stuff happen but not one time that I think it just a cash-in on the Evil Dead name because the movie doesn't force the slapstick comedy down your throat so when it needs to be tongue in cheek it works and when it needs to be creepy the movie can legit make your heart jump with the distorted Image of the ghost and the old VHS look of the movie.

By the time you've managed to pronounce the fiendishly tongue-twisting title the movie would be half finished. While the narrative bides its time unveiling the truth behind Jane Doe’s battered body, it’s heavily steeped in witchcraft. Letterboxd is an independent service created by a small team, and we rely mostly on the support of our members to maintain our site and apps. Beyond being an effective horror movie, it feels like it was made by a group of friends for fun rather than commerce. There are some genuine laughs to be had, such as Naoto’s realization “The shotgun isn’t my weapon, my muscles are!An impalement with an barbell is preceded with his frenzied attempts to loosen its collars and get the weights off the bar. Clocking in at a mere 62 minutes it's a short affair, which is just as well as the majority of the movie is set inside a single room of a small cramped house. Gedreht wurde "Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell" auf Super-8, was der Optik zwar einen Retro-Touch verleiht, aber die Qualität leider auf unterem VHS-Niveau mit grieseligem Bild ansiedelt.

Please consider upgrading to a Pro account—for less than a couple bucks a month, you’ll get cool additional features like all-time and annual stats pages ( example), the ability to select (and filter by) your favorite streaming services, and no ads! Bryan Bertino, a filmmaker with a reputation for bleak horror, creates unrelenting dread and evil in the vacuum of loss here. Definitely not for everyone, but would probably make a great double bill with another super low budget film, like Soft For Digging - both have really cool low budget effects to show the supernatural, even if both are tonally quite different. Zusätzlich kommt noch Stop-Motion-Technik zum Einsatz, um etwa abgetrennte Körperteile unheilvoll in Bewegung zu versetzen.A practical effects extravaganza from someone who can't afford to make a practical effects extravaganza. I did know going in that it was inspired by The Evil Dead, but I didn’t know it was a low budget DIY SOV type deal because 80’s/90’s J-horror has just never been a part of the horror world into which I’ve taken a dive. A family in a rural home struggles to survive after mom Mawarni Suwono’s long battle with illness dried up all the royalties from her once-lucrative music career.
