The 6th review just had to go to the "sequel" of the first American Psycho movie. Basically a young girl obsessed with getting a TA position that would guarantee her a place in Quantico, one step from the FBI.
I was not expecting much from it. It wasn't scary at all but still had the weird narration from the first movie. I was irritated in the beginning because I felt it disregarded the original due to the ambiguous ending it had and yet the "sequel" had him actually be a killer. I honestly felt that the movie could have been better done without linking her to Bates in a way. It was good though. I enjoyed it and was not expecting the plot twist at the end. Mila Kunis portrayed Rachel Newman exceptionally.
Mochi rating: 8.5/10

Bram Stoker's Dracula (1974)
Dir: Dan Curtis
A mysterious Romanian count decides to relocate his entire empire in search for a woman, which he feels is the reincarnation of his lost wife. Only the count is not at all what he would first appear, and soon his true intentions are revealed as he sets his plans in motion. Now, the lives of two innocent young women, Lucy and Mina, are in Dracula's grasp. Stopping Dracula's wrath falls on superstitious veteran physician Van Helsing, and Mina's determined husband Authur. ------------------------------------------------------------------
Possibly one of the closest adaptations to the original source novel, and as one would expect it is the same timeless story brought to life. Dan Curtis was a big name in the horror scene of the 1970's with his gothic television horror soap opera "Dark Shadows", and his anthologies "Trilogy of Terror", and "Dead of Night". Here Curtis utilizes his experience with moody, atmospheric period-piece horror to enhance the gothic vibes. Time period settings set the tone familiar to the horror classic, and the infmaous Jack Palance gives a subtle subdued performance as the film's Dracula. There is enough scenery, clothing design, and attention to detail it gives viewers lots of visuals to chew on. Dan Curtis's take on Dracula is a largely successful one over-all, despite the lack of gore, and it certainly shows that a classic storyline can be revamped while being true to the source material.

Сейчас можно смело сказать, что по части хорроров мы пребываем в эпохе Джеймса Вана. Ставший культовым создатель ужастиков начинал с короткометражки, со временем получившей бюджет из Голливуда и превратившейся в "Пилу". Что еще стоит знать про Джеймса Вана:

Inktober day 13!
Prompt: Horror Character
Wendy Torrance from Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining". I chose this character not only because The Shining is one of my favorite films, but because Shelley Duvall went through hell while filming it. Allegedly Kubrick was very cold and evil to Shelley on set. He was very kind to the other actors though. He made her preform the iconic baseball bat scene over 120 times... So the agony and torment wasn't completely an act. Also, the door scene was filmed and re-shot over the span of 3 days. They went through about 60 doors. Anyway, my point is I love the shining and I love Shelley. ❤
