Avg. Rotten Tomatoes Score:  59%

Genre:  Action/Thriller

Now I know what you guys are thinking, “Hey!  The Last Stand is not horror!!!”  First, calm down.  Second, this film was directed by I Saw the Devil’s Kim Jee-Woon, a film which was atop of several horror bloggers/horror journalists top ten lists of 2011.  Third, the death sequences in this movie are so ridiculous and over the top that this could qualify as a genre film, similar to The Raid: Redemption.  Forth, it’s my site so I’ll choose what I want.  Fifth, get ready for the review of this underrated gem that every genre and Schwarzenegger fan should watch.

Wow.  Wow.  Wow.  What a movie to make my triumphant return with.  They say you can’t judge a book by its cover and boy, after watching this film, I totally agree with that old saying.  Just by looking at this image here to the left, you assume that this is going to be a complete waste of time.  Don’t get me wrong, this film is not great, but it has enough going for it that will keep you entertained for the extremely low 66 minute running time.

Man vs Horror State of the Union Address

rip-van-winkle-3Hello all and welcome back to Man vs Horror, the web’s premier site where an average film junkie who loves horror tackles said genre head on.  I’ve been gone for quite some time due to several personal problems that have arisen within the past 4 months.  Not to go into too much detail but there have been several life altering events that have changed my life within the past year which has lead to me neglecting this site and my fans (the six of you who are out there; you too President Denis Sasso Nguesso, leader of the Republic of Congo).  Below are my pledges to you, the fans.

Suggestions for which horror film to be featured on HDTGM!!!!

Hello all and welcome back to Man vs Horror.  One of my favorite mediums of entertainment are podcasts and the one podcast I listen to religiously is How Did This Get Made? over at Earwolf.  Every two weeks the hysterical group of comedians, Paul Scheer, Jason Mantzoukas, and June Diane Raphael discuss bad films.  In the past they’ve done Jaws 4: The Revenge, The Room, 88 Minutes, The Wicker Man, and other crappy movies that really does beg the question, how did this get made?  If you haven’t heard their show yet, I suggest downloading them on iTunes or from Earwolf.  Fans of cinema will appreciate their humor as they poke fun at ridiculous films.  Continue reading

ATM (2012)

Director:  David Brooks

Avg. Rotten Tomatoes Score:  10%

Genre:  Survival, Thriller

Wow.  That’s all I have to say about this movie.  Chris Sparling, the writer behind the criminally underrated gem, Buried, tries to take another shot at the notion of “being trapped in a _____” and fails in so many different ways.  If you’ve seen the trailer for this film you’ve essentially seen the entire movie.  The only thing missing from the trailer are the insane plot holes, weird “twist” ending, and the pure anger you will experience once the credits start rolling.
