lad-banner-new-v3One of my favorite decades for film and music has always been the 1980’s especially for the horror genre. That is why when I saw that today’s film, Lost After Dark, was a homage to the 80’s, I had to see it. Adrienne (Kendra Leigh Timmons) hasn’t been able to enjoy her teenage years since he sister disappeared some years back. One weekend, her father finally willingly allows her to go to a sleepover for the weekend, but what he doesn’t realize is that Adrienne and her friends are going to his hunting cabin for the weekend. While on the way to the cabin, the bus runs out of gas and the kids run into a cannibalistic killer who won’t stop until they are all dead. The film also stars Sarah Fisher (Degrassi: The Next Generation) as Laurie, Jesse Camacho (Kick-Ass 2) as Tobe, Elise Gatien (Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days) as Jamie, Justin Kelly (Degrassi: The Next Generation) as Sean, Stephan James (When The Game Stands Tall) as Wesley, Eve Harlow (The Tall Man) as Marilyn, Lanie McAuley (Motive) as Heather, Alexander Calvert (Scream: The TV Series) as Johnnie, Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgement Day) as Mr. C, Mark Wiebe (Sweet Karma) as Junior Joad, David Lipper (Full House) as Adrienne’s Dad, and the film was directed by Ian Kessner (The Puzzle).

lost-after-dark-6I loved horror films from the 80’s whether they were cheesy or not and I am starting to love seeing all the horror guys paying homage to the decade. I thought Lost After Dark was an OK film and I say that because it had the right idea, but it just didn’t execute as well. There were little inconsistencies within the film like the Mr. Big Lean Into It cassette that they put into the player. The album came out in 1991, the film is set in 1984. Is no one into Van Halen at all within this group because they were huge and the hair metal scene was starting to catch on at this point. The acting in the film was OK even from Robert Patrick who sounded too robotic in the film like he was trying to read the lines but didn’t believe in them. The killer was OK looking, he just looked like a homeless guy with a beard and really bad teeth. The hairstyles were pretty spot on for the most part so they get kudos for that. The one thing that I did like is that who you expect to be a survivor is not a survivor. They throw you for a loop as to who could possibly be the one who gets to live. That was something that I enjoyed about the film. One thing that bothered me too was that you get the legend of the killer and his past after the film is almost over. What is the point of that unless you plan to release a sequel? Hey at least they went out there and they tried their best . I am going to give the film an C+ for a final grade.

tlhfheaderYesterday I ventured to Worcester, Massachusetts to attend the 13TH Annual Rock And Shock Horror and Music Convention for the second year in a row. While I was there, I stopped by the Troma booth and decided that this year I would pick up a film from them and I chose The Last Horror Film which is also today’s film. Vinny (Joe Spinell) is a New York City taxi driver, but that isn’t Vinny’s passion in life. All Vinny wants to do with his life is be the best horror director in the world and he hopes that his crush Jana Bates (Caroline Munro) will star in it. So, he packs up his things and he heads to Cannes, France to try and get her to star in his film. Meanwhile, people that are close to Jana are starting to get killed and Vinny is suspected of the murders. The film also stars Susanne Benton (Catch-22) as Susan Archer, Glenn Jacobson (Trick Or Treats) as Bret Bates, Judd Hamilton (Maniac) as Alan Cunningham, David Winters (West Side Story) as Stanley Kline, Devin Goldenberg (The Happy Hooker Goes Hollywood) as Marty Bernstein, Filomena Spagnuolo (The Godfather) as Vinny’s Mother, J’Len Winters as Girl In Jacuzzi, and the film was directed by David Winters.

6a017d4117b2c6970c01a3fd3d3c50970b-800wiSpoiler Alert: There may be information contained in this Article that could potentially spoil the plot of the film so continue with caution or do not read any further if you do not want to know. Joe Spinell is an incredible actor for the horror genre having starred in the jaw dropping Maniac as well as having starred in other great non-horror films. I have t be honest in saying that Joe absolutely sells you on the idea that he is this obsessed fan who will stop at nothing to talk to Jana Bates about his film. During the film, you are led to believe that it’s Vinny who is committing the crimes, but man the big reveal at the end of the film I did not see coming. The problem is that there is a lot of imagery that is thrown in there that makes you believe he is off his rocker. Like the picture you see to the left, that is him rubbing himself sexually while she is being projected on to the wall through video or the hundreds of pictures he has of her hanging on his wall. He also seems to be in the same vicinity as the victims every time something happens which makes you think he is guilty as charged.  The film had everything from a great maniac to a Bond girl and plenty of topless nudity to please any horror fan. You definitely need to check this one if you were a fan of the original Maniac film or Joe Spinell. The film does not disappoint at all and I can understand why Troma jumped all over this film. I am going to give the film an B+ for a final grade.

I like to update you guys on just about everything that goes on here at Moshpits and Movies. For the fifth year in a row, we are observing the great holiday of Halloween by once again dedicating the whole month to the love of the holiday. Every post is going to be Halloween related which means there will be no Ass Whoopin Wednesdays until November and no Cheeseball Cinema until then as well. What returns is Eddie’s 31 Days Of Halloween which is a movie review of a horror film everyday for the whole month. The single of the week and the music video of the week posts will also be dedicated to that, but I am also going to be giving you one regular post as well since we are doing an award at the end of the year for those two categories. After the month is over, everything will go back to normal so I’ll will see all you Halloween fans in October.

monster entertainment awards 5Ever since the start of the Monster Entertainment Awards, I have always loved leaving the votes up to the people because you end up getting surprised at some of the winners. Obviously, there are those films or albums that you expect to win and they end up winning, but that is expected (also applies to the music side). One of the biggest surprises in my opinion came in the album of the year category, Rock album of the year, and remake of the year to name a few. I really expected Star Wars: The Force Awakens to take movie of the year, but again you always get surprised when the people vote. I want to send a shout out to all the fans of rock band Bobaflex for banding together and getting Anything That Moves as the Rock Album Of The Year because that is what it’s all about when we say fan participation. I also want to send a shout out to anyone that took the time to visit the blog and vote as well. As usual, I am going to review all of the winners on the music side for the album of the week category, but there will only be two (we have already reviewed two of the winners). So, without further ado, here are all the winners:

Now is your time to make your voices heard as I open the voting for the 5TH Annual Monster Entertainment Awards. This particular post is for the movie side and the rest of the awards we are giving out like Superhero TV Show Of The Year (1st Time), Male Wrestler Of The Year, Female Wrestler Of The Year, etc. Some of the awards you can expect from the movie side are some of the usual’s like Movie Of The Year, Bad ass Movie Of The Year, Horror film of the year, Cameo Of The Year, and more. We have some surprises in some of the categories that may throw you off, but we felt that they were the best of the year. Take your time, look over the categories, cast your vote (it’s your civic duty as fans), and share the hell out of this post. You have until January 31ST at 11:59 PM ET to cast your vote
