When you look at the era Tobe Hooper came to came a lot of filmmakers were changing the horror world as we know it and I suppose some of these guys are gonna get left in the dust. I'm not quite sure if it was the screenplays or Hooper's directing, but he never quite lived up to what many thought he would go on and become. With that said I very much do think he deserves to be a part of the Masters of Horror even if only for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
The Damned Thing is a very mixed bad, but after all was said and done I felt as if this movie could have been so much more than what it was. The Damned Thing had the makings of a great horror flick, but somewhere along the course of it there are parts that just don't work well.
First up the casting here is excellent; I am a huge fan of Sean Patrick Flanery. He has this coolness he brings to every role. Even a bad movie Sean always makes the best of it and even if I dislike the movie I always walk away happy with Sean Patrick Flanery's performance. The rest of the cast all play their respected roles quite well. Ted Raimi is great even if the part is brief. Marisa Coughlan does a solid job in her role and so far all is good here.
The screenplay by Richard Christian Matheson was quite well done. I found his script for the most part well-written. The characters are interesting and have depth. While there might be some moments that drag a little bit, but overall the script was quite good.Read more ›
A horrific entity plaques a family for generations, causing the town they live in to all turn crazy, killing themselves and others in terrible gruesome ways. Very good special effects especially early on in the beginning when the father dies, and his chest is ripped open and he is disemboweled. This scene may make some queasy, as my wife had a hard time watching that scene.
Casting was excellent, Raimi fulfilled his role really well as the town priest and all the actors played their characters well and nothing was ever questioned in their ability. I also thoroughly enjoyed the premise of the movie and was disappointing that it did not last longer, i feel that this particular story would have lend itself well to a full fledged horror film rather than a 60 minute episode of Moh.
This movie is a definite buy for any horror enthusiast and collector. I really enjoyed the film.
that beats out the evil, but in this movie that didn't happen. At the end when you think the Damned thing has been beaten
by the father, the unthinkable happens. It has great computer graphics and special effects. It's an okay movie, but I personally was disappointed. I would recommend this movie, because some people would probably enjoy it more than I did.
