3.0 out of 5 stars Australian Giallo (don't expect a slasher/horror movie) September 19, 2012
By Rohan J
This movie isn't really violent at all and it is slow paced... it plays out exactly like a Giallo, considering how slow some films of that genre are, you shouldn't be disappointed if you go in thinking this.. if this was an actual Giallo it would probably be considered a very good one. The score is nice and gloomy and theres nothing bad about the performances. It comes to a pretty exciting (and confusing) conclusion.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even the correct movie title.. July 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
After many great VHS era and genre releases like Mortuary and Satan's Slave, Katarina's Nightmare Theather releases had me hooked. I saw this new title come up for release and I took the plunge. With a title like "The Day After Halloween" and featuring "that guy" who played Toecutter in Mad Max, I figured this was going to be a great lost aussie slasher from 1979, during a time when lots of great genre flicks were coming (and going).

Well, even this life-long horror fan got duped. First off, the title of the movie is Snapshot. There is no mention of Halloween anywhere in this film. Secondly, its not even a horror film, let alone a slasher. Its a drama/thriller that carries on WAY too long with nothing going on. The supposed "psycho" is just an ex boyfriend and he is about as threatening as a Teddy Bear.

The "violence" doesnt even pick up until the last 20 minutes of the film, and by then no one cares anymore. Pacing is terrible. Not even a little nudity from the lead actress can save this film. 90 percent of the film is spent wasting time with lame photo shoots for the lead actress.

Scorpion Films, if you are reading this, please hire me to screen your potential releases before making the investment, cause this film is not worthy of release under the Katarina's Nightmare Theater collection!

I hope the next round of releases are actual horror films, cause even the bad ones I have enjoyed due to the action/gore/nudity. But 110 minutes of photo shoots and parental arguements is not worth a 6 pack of beer on the couch.

Pass this one and get Mortuary, Satan's Slave, and Humongous instead. I still support this line of releases cause at least they are unearthing films that never got their due. This just isn't one of them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Trick or Treat, sucker. June 2, 2012
Aaaah, the 80's! What a great time! Especially if you were a fourteen year old kid who just loved horror movies. I would walk miles to get to the nearest 'mom and pop' video store every weekend to see what was new on the shelves. And, one day, like magic, this movie just appeared on top. And it stuck out like a soar thumb. I mean, the VHS box was huge. Huge I tell you. At first, I thought someone had stuck a box of cereal on the shelf as a joke. No kidding.If I can remember correctly, it had this picture on the front showing a bloody hand on a desk, next to a calendar, or something. I think a pair of scissors was on the desk also. Then, I looked at the title. It said, 'The day after Halloween'.

Excuse me? (I had to take a second look) Yep! That's what it said. '...after Halloween'. I was dumbfounded, and upset, and a little annoyed. All I kept saying to myself was, 'When did they make another 'Halloween' movie? What is going on!? How could I have missed this at the theater!? Where were the darn commercials? How come Fangoria didn't say anything about it? What is the world coming to? By that point,I checked all over the box and it didn't have anything that looked like a Michael Myer's movie. No white face. No Jamie Lee Curtis. Nuthin'. But yet, it said, clear as day, it was a 'Halloween' movie. Wow! I thought. I'll finally get a chance to see what happened after Laurie Strode took off in the ambulance at the end of Halloween 2. I was excited at the thought, but also anxious, because Michael Myers scared me to death. But I just had to watch it.

So, when I got home, I popped the tape into the player, took a deep breath, hit play and started to watch. Hmmm. When is that creepy techno music going to play? I kept waiting. Who is that on the screen? I kept waiting.
