The Midnight Hour

The Midnight Hour

Let me start off by saying that The Midnight Hour sort of reminded me of the Monster Squad. Not nearly as good but still fun to watch. If you like 80’s zombie and vampire movie’s then I recommend you watch this. Do you want the quick summary? Ok…you got it.

It’s about a group of high school kids that unleash a curse on Halloween night…Go Figure. That sounds so familiar doesn’t it. The kids steal a chest from a basement at a museum to get their Halloween costumes and find a sealed scroll inside. Well being the curious teens they were of course broke the wax seal and read it in the spooky graveyard. Why not right? Seems to me like the logical place.

So after waking the dead, they decide to go to a party. The main character (Phil) realizes he has no shot with the girl he’s in love with so he leaves and meets a hot zombie cheerleader (Sandra) that falls in love with him. So he makes out with her for a little bit in the back seat of his car. But wait.. A werewolf then jumps on the car and scares them. bwahahaha. So they tell the police but of course they don’t believe them…I mean come ‘on would you? Oh, the police captain is played by Red Foreman from “That 70’s Show”. Yeah, he’s a dick in this as well.

At this point Phil finally realized they woke the dead for real and he’s on a mission to stop it. They have to re-seal the scroll with wax and a ring by midnight. Sounds pretty easy to me… Well everyone at the party ends up getting bitten by the head Vampire (Lucinda) except for Phil and Sandra. When they get back to the party, the Zombies sing a song, which is exactly like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. and then chase after them back to the graveyard. They re-seal the scroll in the car and the zombies along with his dead girlfriend disappears. THE END!

Now doesn’t that just sound like an awesome Movie!? HAHA

Well I encourage you to watch it because it is rather enjoyable. The Plot is ok, the acting is ok, and the music is ok. I’m not exactly sure what the Opera singing near the end had to do with anything but whatever. There was also a part at the party in the basement when Lucinda bites a girl and the wine bottles decide to have a mind of their own. Look for it and you’ll laugh!!!  I’ll give this one a B– because this is definitely a B-Movie.

What you will learn from “The Midnight Hour”

1) Ketchup is a good alternative for blood.

2) Dead cheerleaders don’t decay.

3) Zombie midgets are a lot cooler wearing sunglasses.

4) The choreography at the end is almost identical to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”.

5) Sparkly Tinsel wigs will give you a rash.

6) If you drive real slow, zombies won’t notice you.

7) Rob Owens’ baseball card is best used in the spokes of a kids bike.

The Toxic Avenger

The Toxic Avenger

If you haven’t seen The Toxic Avenger, you should stop reading this and go watch it right now! While it is one of the cheesiest and stupid movies of all time, it is also one of the best.

If you are a fan of 80’s B-movie genre’s, then you will absolutely love this. To sum it up, it’s about a nerdy kid that gets picked on and eventually jumps out of a window into a drum of toxic waste that just so happens to not have a lid on it. How convenient huh… He then turns into a monster, aka The Toxic Avenger, and starts killing all the bad guys.

Now the people in this movie are all fucked up…Have you ever heard that game teenagers play when there driving that’s like, “hit the old lady and get 10 points, hit the kid and get 20 points?” Well that’s exactly what this guy Bozo does. He runs over a kid on a bike but notices he’s not dead and won’t get his full points so he runs over him again and splatters his head. Then they take a picture of it. Yeah…it’s that cool!

Once you hear the voice over for the Toxic Avenger, you’ll laugh your ass off. One minute you hear him growling and groaning and then next you hear this subtle voice. It’s hilarious! The way the Avenger kills people too is classic. I’m not going to spoil anyof them for you so you’re just going to have to watch it. Trust me though, you’ll thank me you did.

This movie is not going to be for everyone though. If you don’t like gore or violence I would stay away from this. If you take this movie seriously, you won’t like it. If you take it for how it is and expect the worst, you will love it. This movie definitely deserves an A…but not for any real reason. See for yourself! Long live the Troma Team! Enjoy
