This month I have been watching more horror movies than usual, as have many other bloggers, apparently. While I haven’t had time to do full reviews for each of them, I was able to compile some thoughts for three horror flicks:
Paranormal Activity 2 
I was a big fan of the first Paranormal Activity, and thought it was one of the better horror films to come out in the last few years. That being said, I felt a sequel was unnecessary. PA2 does a surprisingly good job of tying in the original’s events, but it lacks the intrigue and suspense of its predecessor. Not much happens for the first 2/3 of the movie, and there isn’t really anything new to speak of. This isn’t a bad sequel, but it felt like more could have been done with the concept. 6/10
A movie about a serial killer that just so happens to be a tire. Yeah, it’s pretty f’n bizarre. I thought it was going to be some artsy piece with nothing but a tire rolling around while making animals explode, but I was pleased to see an entertaining bunch of characters as well (particularly those played by Wings Hauser and Stephen Spinella). This is a weird little movie that has some moments of dullness, but I still enjoyed the overall quirkiness. Definitely not for everyone, though. 6/10
A gory homage to the classic B-movie slashers, Hatchet offers everything in excess. Gratuitous nudity, buckets of blood, cheesy dialogue, bad acting, and one ugly motherfucker of a villain. It’s a pretty entertaining ride as far as B-movies go, though some of the actors have a tendency to get on the nerves. Curious to check out the sequel. 7/10
How about you guys? Watch any good horror movies this month?
