Cat's Eye

I was intrigued by the cameos by Cujo and Christine, but I'm rapidly losing interest seeing some jackass shock the cat. Only still watching because I know it can't die since the movie follows it. And I'm hoping that guy get's what's coming to him. But instead we don't get an ending to that story at all.

Second story I'm completely lost at first, but that had a hilarious pay off.

The third story is made for movie, and is a bit obvious about it. Throws you off how the first two involve the evils of man and then the third has a supernatural element. Just why?

It was a decent flick though. Cat lovers will be happy with it.

Child's Play



I thought I had seen this in its entirety at least once, but I went in with virgin eyes basically. By any means of good writing, it has many flaws. I would even say it's a bad film. But the traditional effects were stunning, and the characters memorable, so I can see how this became an easy classic. I quite enjoyed it in it's awfulness.

I also just saw it for the first time a few months back. As an overall horror film, I thought it was pretty average, but still solidly made, with effective doll effects. Story-wise, besides being pretty average, I'd want to call it cliche, even for it's time, but it's really a bit of a parody and social satire... which feeds on cliche. It was well received by critics and ticket sales. To just be plain about it, I didn't really like it, more a personal taste issue... mostly, its brand of crudeness doesn't hit my funny bone.

Possibly the most significant thing about Child's Play's initial success was the social environment at the time: which was the Cabbage Patch Kids hysteria -- with parents getting into fits fights to get the doll for their kid, and many cutesy toys hypes in the 80s. So it was a ripe era to make a cutie killer doll and trash the whole hysteria.

976-Evil (1989) 8/10



Been a while since I've seen it. Lots of nostalgia, probably effected my score a little. A little slow moving, heavy on atmosphere, with a pretty good pay off in the end.
