What a great way to start off the year!
Yech, I disagree. This new 2015 Cinema Snob is NOWHERE NEAR as funny as the old 2014 Cinema Snob was. This video gets zero stars from me, thank you very much!
That's why I only watch reviews from The Rickhead.
He really knows what's up.
I understood the entirety of your post without having to resort to looking up words in the dictionary. You lack the sesquipedalian loquaciousness necessary for verisimilitude as a "critique de critique de cinéma." Perhaps if you dusted off your thesaurus a few times, you would learn to not rely on so much of that disgusting meta humor.
Wait...by critiquing a critique on a critic, I'm also meta. Does that mean there's going to be a never-ending line of critics in this thread, like the ending of the Argument Clinic sketch?
this reminds me of the video game "Dead Island".
Who do you voodoo,bitch!
Aw Yeah! I'm excited! Also, blip works!
I do? :-D
Great way to start this year, with a Cinema Snob new episode!
Their decision to begin a series with a sequel sparked an ancient sequel curse cooked up by a long forgotten race called The Mayans 2
That eye scene was so fake. You can clearly tell that it's a dummy head so it immediately took me out. Sorry, this wasn't one of the better practical effects I'v seen.
The suspense was what made that scene effective to me in that opinion. Any stupid horror movie can have someone jam someone's head through a wooden splinter. It's the slow struggle that made it good, in my opinion. It did look pretty fake though.
Awww, shit, he DID end up pulling out a Weekend At Bernie's 2 reference in the video...aaaand I was kind of hoping for it...and I kinda hate myself for it. Fuck it, give me that barf bag.
Y'know, we really shoulda brought Gallagher tarps for this video.
That and the music redubbing were my favorite jokes.
For my Horror Subgenres course last semester, my teacher showed the class the eyeball scene just to fuck with us at the end of one of our classes. :D
Wow your teacher sounds fucking awesome.
blah why did I never go to film school.. that sounds awesome :D
Did they also show the guts puking scene from City Of The Living Dead?
Few filmmakers did gore so effectively as Fulci :)
He didn't. I think he showed us that either for our week on Giallo (we were shown Deep Red) or our week on Body Horror (we were shown The Brood).
I have seen the original Dawn of the Dead, but never saw this movie. After this video, I now feel obligated to check it out especially for all those wonderful gory scenes!
I wouldn't get too excited. The gore work is well done but the film itself is boring, plodding along with little plot and no really interesting characters. You saw saw most of the good stuff in the video above. Maybe the film was just too hyped up for me but I really didn't like it.
love this movie, cant wait to see you rip it a new one man. =D
Is this the first time the Snob has puked on screen?
Also, what did you use?
Woops. I posted before seeing the very end. I think I got my answer on the second question.
Remember this particular skit? =3
I seriously want that as a stand alone scene. Great reaction.
Hey, Brad. Typo in your opening credits - Stoned Grenlin Productions instead of Gremlin.
This movie actually looks pretty cool at certain points. While it isn't the most well put together movie, it still does well at the horror bits. My favorite scene is when the woman is being slowly forced against the wooden spike that gouges her eye out. It's good basic horror that some people could learn from if they wanted to make their own horror movie.
The vomit gag (no pun intended) got me every time haha this was a great review. Really like this movie, especially the eye-gouging scene.
Dude sweet..! I'm the one that sent you that movie from your Amazon Wish List forever and many a day ago. Great to see you finally got around to doing a Snob episode on it. Awesome..!
Hi friend,You know that John Waite song "Missing You" me Uncle Pernell says he is missing 80s Dan super ******* bad.
quick, someone write a script for Zombie Jaws and/or Ocean Of The Zombie Sharks.
Great. Here's to a year full of laughs.
So, y'ever gonna get around to reviewing "Night of the Seagulls"?
Nice AVGN reference. I would kill to see you and James Rolfe talk about horror films for a few hours.
Italian horror means we're gonna spotlight Goblin a little bit right? (Because Goblin is amazing).
I'm not catching the AVGN reference. Where was it?
When he's discussing Zombie's infinite titles and the confusion about it, he refers in passing to an AVGN video called "Chronologically Confused About Sequel Titles" which also highlights Zombie and all its titles.
At least I think he is.
Ah. I remember that AVGN video, but the reference flew right over my head.
Here's the song that plays on the boat:
That's all I have to say.
Great new episode of the Cinebarf Snob!
I truly enjoyed my breakfast while watching!
Brad, now that we went full circle with Zombie movies, you need to review Zombi 8 (Night of the Seagulls) and Zombi 9 (La rebelión de las muertas). IMDB says they exist.
Yes, someone notices delay in zombie movie
Could you also do "Serbian Night of The Living Dead" a.k.a. "Zone of The Dead", in one of your next videos? I don't remember you ever tackling it, so far. I know it's pretty "recent" by Snob's "standards:" (2009), but still...
I love the posters on the wall Brad. I'm going to Culture Shock in Indianapolis next month where the cast of Dawn of the Dead and Malcolm McDowell are going to be appearing at. This just makes me more excited for that event. As always enjoyed your Snob review. Happy New Year!!
It always annoys me in zombie movies where a character just sits there while the zombie very very very slowly approaches them.
Also that the Doctor thought that epilepsy might be a reason for the zombies was odd. I have had seizures in the past and the only tongue that gets bitten was my own.
It annoys me when they run around or fall in love and appear in about fifty new semi comic horrors a day! I love Shaun of the Dead and I liked 28 Days Later but those films have ruined zombies.
Are you talking about the characters falling in love or the Zombies falling in love? Because if zombies can fall in love does that mean zombie sex? Also is there such thing as zombie porn? I don't want to even google that to find out. ><
I'm talking about zombies. Warm Bodies and a couple of others in the pipeline. The problem for me is that Zombies are being made tragic or comic or too fast and to dull. I'm a traditionalist, . I liked zombies best when they were slow and they were maybe metaphors for mindless consumerism and evil governments. When current zombie films aren't bad comedies they're these weird soapy intimate dramas about coping or something. But this is the way of modern horror. They do the same with werewolves and vampires. It's because the directors and writers are trying to add the spurious character driven faux serious dramatics they leaned about in film school and think this means they can transcend the genre. . This stuff to me is just lifeless especially when they add a plaintive indie-film piano motif on the soundtrack because that's what passes for emotional.
While I understand the traditional view of zombies and what you are saying, I also believe it is good when there are different views of a genre. I personally hate putting limits on stories.I think it can be limiting when it comes to the creative process. So when people go beyond those limits and explore other story lines and possibilities. I think that is cool. Like most things sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. People are different and how we look at the monsters in our minds is different too.
I agree to a certain extent. Fido was pretty awesome though and that had zombies falling in love.
Yep, zombie porn exist because... rule 34, some of them were reviewed by the Cinema Snob himself (I may have made some mistake in that phrase, sorry English isn't my first language).
As for the rest of your comment I personally agree with everything, style is the great differential that makes a movie "cult" rather than "just entertaining".
Braindead is awesome, is a "must see" to any lover of the zombie movie sub-genre, but isn't for then who have a weak stomach, lol.
God... Braindead. That movie. It's one of those so bad it's good in an Evil Dead sort of ways. My friends and I still use a quote from that movie as often as we can. 'I kick ass, FOR THE LORD!'
Just to add a little something: for a zombie sex scene who isn't in a porno (yes, zombie porn exist) watch Braindead (Dead Alive), but I warn you watch it with a barf bag at your side.
I know zombie porn exists and I've seen some of it; Doesn't bother me at all. I don't mind splatter comedy either. My real bugbear is simply too many lightweight zombie comedies, speed zombies and pseudo serious drama. I don't think they're very inventive plus they tend to have a samey production style. I think the inventive part of film making comes mostly from style rather than content. But that's me. I like aesthetics, framing, camera movement, music etc. because that's what makes a film worth watching more than once. or twice. A lot of Italian movies had a great look and awesome soundtrack. Fulci knew how to frame a scene and use gore.
Braindead is great and I wish Peter Jackson would do another movie like it.
Review The Beyond next please
Fucking worms, why did it have to be fucking worms! I demand warnings to cater to my exact phobia regardless of how impractical signposting every common phobia would be.
nice. One of my favorite horror films. And one that actually pays homage to the voodoo origins of the phenomena.
Here's hoping you also do The Serpent And The Rainbow :)
Me too, that movie is awesome!
Voodoo isn't the origin of the walking dead phenomenon, just the term "Zombie"
Corpses rising from the dead to terrorize/feed on the living is a thing in most cultures for thousands of years. In fact, originally, Vampires were closer to what we think of Zombies.
Also, AM I the only one who kept expecting someone to say "you do" every time the word Voodoo was mentioned?
You're right in the most part, but if I remember correctly they say in the movie The Serpent And The Rainbow that a zombie is created when a voodoo sorcerer uses his ability to steal the soul of someone who is labeled then "zombie", so... a person without a soul can walk, eat, etc... but is really alive? Dun, dun, dun, duuunnn...
Hi Team Snob!
Great episode. Hope you guys have an awesome 2015.
And enough with the vomit schtick, thank you very much! :D
LOL fantastic episode Snob. I've been sitting on the toilet all day with the power shits, and this gave me a much needed laugh.
HA HA HA Oh yeah Ive been waiting so long for you to cover this one! I love Zombie but I also enjoy how you mock it so its all good (still watch out for that eye scene ouch!) By the by Mr. Snob, I left you a message at the end of you're "Turkey Jerky" short that I really would like a reply to if its not too much to ask its at the tail end under the name Orion you cant miss it- peace niggga love the work.
"Please explain your political opinions so I can tell you how wrong you are."
Hey sorry I didn't mean to start an argument I just got rubbed the wrong way on a couple of remarks that's all I wont press anything further (guess I have too much of my Dad in me) consider this closed P.S. What the Hell is a wek !?!?
That was a fantastic episode
I was wondering when you were going to snob this one.
God i love the theme music to this movie. Fabio Frizzi's work is amazing!
It actually sounds like Ratatat!
this review was pretty gay bro
The beyond isn't a zombie movie, it's a horror movie with zombies in it, if you were a real fan or have at least seen the movie you would have know this.
Because The Cinema Snob character is a "real fan" and doesn't always say things that a horror fan wouldn't say?
Moron, just admit that he messed up. We all know he did.
As awesome as this was/is, I still have the jitters as to what the Top 10 Worst Movies of 2014 will be!
So...what's a "grenlin"? I noticed the title sequence said "Stoned Grenlin"...
Looks like some kind of typo?
But who could possibly figure out what it means???
This whole video is ruined now and unwatchable.
you think the "alternate title" for 'Twins' is odd, check out the imdb pages for 'Abraxas, Guardian of the Universe', 'Space Zombie Bingo' and 'Phantasm'
Nice, Zombie finally gets snobbed. I got seriously into Fulci for a few months earlier this year. The Beyond is my favorite. :)
Looks like you're ready to pop.
I'm looking forward to what you have in store for 2015. I also think this is my new favorite episode, keep up the fantastic work!
man, that eye scene made me cringe.
That eye gouging scene was pretty hard to watch.
I don't usually mind gory scenes, but I just can't stand eye injuries.
I do enjoy the James Rolfe reference.
2015 has only started, and a new year of The Cinema Snob starts off very strong.
If you are disturbed by these events, then come with me, I will protect you in my secret bunker at the bottom of the ocean.
2015: More gore, less gay. Thank you very much.
More gore, more gay. That way everyone wins!
I'm sorry, it's just part of my LGBT movement, since I'm also gay.
Here in Spain the movie was called "Nueva York bajo el terror de los zombies", something like "New York under the fear of zombies".
I want to see the movie now, if only to hear more of that sweet soundtrack. I hope someone with some talent does a remix of it one day.
Why the jab at James Rolfe?
Some of the older archived videos of 2009 were brought over from the youtube account before thecinemasnob.com was created, so please forgive the lesser video quality of such as some did not transfer well.
