Horror Movie Reviews: Zombeavers, Victor Frankenstein, We Are Still Here, Krampus, The Witch

 
ZOMBEAVERS
 
Synopsis:
College friends find their weekend of sex and debauchery
ruined when deadly zombie beavers swarm their riverside cabin.
 
Martha's Thoughts:
Really?
Zombie Beavers?
And if you get bit by one you turn into a Zombie Beaver.
*SMH*
This is the most ... fucked up thing I've ever seen and
 I watched Evil Bong, Thankskilling....
 
Martha's Rating:

2/5

We Are Still Here
 
Synopsis:
In the cold, wintery fields of New England, a lonely old house wakes up every thirty years - and demands a sacrifice.
 
Martha's Thoughts:
This is actually well done if you can sit through the long, boring drawn out Character establishment in the beginning. Lasts around 30 to 45 minutes then the movie gets good. The visuals are really haunting. I thought this was going to bore me but in the end I really enjoyed the story it told.
 
Martha's Rating:
3/5

Victor Frankenstein
 
Synopsis:While searching for animal body parts at a London circus, radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy) meets gifted surgeon Igor Strausman (Daniel Radcliffe). Not only does the brilliant doctor offer Strausman his friendship, but also a chance to work with him on groundbreaking research that could change the world forever. When Victor's experiments with life and death go too far, only Igor can bring him back from the brink of madness and save him from his monstrous creation.
 
Martha's Thoughts: BRILLIANT! Putting Igor as the hero and Frankenstein as the insane scientist worked so well. McAvoy was honestly the BEST I've ever seen him in this movie. Daniel Radcliffe was so very spot on that I forgot he was once Harry Potter. The experiments, the madness, the finale... all worked out to make this a REALLY GOOD version of the Frankenstein story.
 
Martha's Rating:
4/5

The Witch
 
Synopsis:In 1630 New England, panic and despair envelops a farmer, his wife, and four of their children when youngest son Samuel suddenly vanishes. The family blames Thomasin, the oldest daughter who was watching the boy at the time of his disappearance. With suspicion and paranoia mounting, twin siblings Mercy and Jonas suspect Thomasin of witchcraft, testing the clan's faith, loyalty and love to one another.
 
Martha's Thoughts:I know a lot of people PRAISE and like this movie. Bah. It was boring. Too artsy for my taste and I had to turn on SUBTITLES just to understand what the fuck they were saying.
 
Martha's Rating:
1/5

Krampus
 
Synopsis:
While the holiday season represents the most magical time of year, ancient European folklore warns of Krampus, a horned beast who punishes naughty children at Christmastime. When dysfunctional family squabbling causes young Max  to lose his festive spirit, it unleashes the wrath of the fearsome demon. As Krampus lays siege to the home, the family must band together to save one another from a monstrous fate.
 
Martha's Thoughts:
As a little girl I was told the tale from my German great grandmother of Krampus. It was terrifying. Watching this bring some FUN to it made it very enjoyable. I love the different aspects of Christmas used by Krampus to send against the family. I would tell you about each but I will just let you see. All are unique, all very well done. Visually it is a great horror movie. It has SOME comedy. In the end, the twist will have you wanting more...

4/5
