DTV Madness: Wrong Turn 3, Bungalow of the Damned!!!

Welcome to another installment of DTV Madness!!! This time we take a look at Wrong Turn 3 and Bachelor Party in the Bungalow of the Damned. Both are horror movies and that's about where the similarities end.

Wrong Turn 3

I saw the first Wrong Turn when it originally came out for a theatrical run and I quite enjoyed it thanks to the gory effects, Eliza Dushku *drool*, and Jeremy Sisto. Somewhere between then and now, Wrong Turn 2 was released. I never saw it or even knew it existed, but it's out there apparently. So I saw Wrong Turn 3: Left For Dead last week and actually had a pretty good time with it.

There's not much to the plot (well, it is a horror movie). Basically a busload of convicts are being transferred from one prison to another. On their voyage, the bus gets runoff the road and taken down by the mountain men that dwell in the forest. From then on, it becomes a survival story but the mountain men are watching... and are hungry.

The story is as predictable as it gets, but what really made the movie work for me was all the gore, blood, and the inventive kills. From the opening sequence where a bunch of campers and a buxom young lass get dispatched, we know that we're in for a wild ride. The practical effects and even the CG blood effects are pretty well done. The incestuous mountain men look pretty hilarious but not as good as the ones from the first Wrong Turn as I recall. These ones look basically like a mix between Gollum from Lord of the Rings and the hillbillies from Deliverance.

Although this was a low budget DTV movie, I should note that it was backed by Fox Home Video, so it's of the high low-budget caliber of movies. It probably explains why the gore and blood were done so well. It even had TV spots 2 weeks ago advertising its release which surprised me.

It's out on video now so feel free to rent it if you're bored on a Friday night.


Bachelor Party in the Bungalow of the Damned

Honestly, if you know of a movie with a better movie title than this, then I'd like to hear it. This is likely one of the best titles I've ever heard for a movie. Well, now that I got the good aside, let me get to the bad. THIS MOVIE WAS SHIT!!#$%#$#%#$!!$!!!

What a waste of time! I've said it before. Most of the time when you venture into the DTV territory, you've gotta be prepared to watch some shit, because 9 times out of 10, that's what you're going to get. After watching this movie, I feel as though I were served shit as an appetizer, given a shit entree, capped off with some sweet shit for the desert. Point being: I was given shit the whole time.

Yes, the movie was that bad and yes, it was made on a super low budget. But that's not an excuse. I've seen a ton of low budget movies and I've seen that they can be good. It's not an impossibility.

Oh yeah, I didn't even get to talk about the movie yet. Well fuck this movie!!!!!!!!!!! I was in such a good mood before writing this review. Now I feel like I'm full of anger and vitriol.

Okay. Breathe Jeff, breathe. 3... 2... 1...

I'm in a happy place. Clouds. Rainbows. Fluffy sheeps.

I'm calm again. But that's not enough to get me to talk about this movie. Heed my warning my friends, heed my warning. Later geeks.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens!!!!!!!!!!

(Warning: Spoilers Ahead)
Star Wars!!!!  After a 10 year gap we finally receive a new entry into the now Disney owned Star Wars franchise!  So it is apt that the new entry is called the Force Awakens.
The movie starts off 30 years from where the Return of the Jedi last left us.  The Empire has fallen and the Rebels have seemingly disbanded.  But from the ashes of the past, a new threat has risen.  Out of the fallen Empire, a new army called the First Order has spawned, threatening to finish off what the Empire set out to do –  eliminate the force by terminating the last known Jedi, Luke Skywalker.  But as the Empire has evolved so have the Rebels.  Led by General Leia Organa, the Resistance (or the new Rebels) aims to find Luke first, to stop the First Order.
We are told this story through two new main characters.  Rey, who is a scavenger on the planet Jakku, who harvests scrap metals to earn a meal.  Finn, a turncoat stormtrooper who realizes his purpose could be something more than j…

About The Lam

Very first light, Chief, sharks come cruisin', so we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know, it was kinda like old squares in the battle like you see in the calendar named "The Battle of Waterloo" and the idea was: shark comes to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark go away... but sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces. You know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men. I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand.…

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3!!!!!!!!!!!! (PS4)

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is Activision’s latest entry into the bestselling Call of Duty franchise.  Developed by Treyarch Studios, the Black Ops subseries of Call of Duty games has been considered by many as the best of the COD games.  Whereas Black Ops 1 and 2 were direct sequels, BO3 seems only to be a spiritual sequel to its predecessors.  There is no direct or clear continuation of story from the previous entries.  Rather it takes the ideas of mind control and manipulation, and spins off its own story.
It’s a futuristic world, where humans are infused with technology (much like Robocop!) and fight alongside and against robots.  This time around, you assume the role of an unnamed soldier, who together with your partner Hendricks and a CIA agent named Rachel Kane, track down a former Black Ops commander named John Taylor as he and his former squad appears to have gone rogue destroying CIA sites around the world.  The story will take you to Singapore, Egypt and even wackier, you’ll …
