Gate Multiplex Cinema, Cork, Ireland

This is our cinema here in Cork. If you compare it with German cinemas for example, they seem to be a bit more developed. They have free choice of seats, an automatic ticket dispenser. Maybe this is why you don´t have to queue in Irish cinemas. You have to consider that they only have to cash desks. So they solved the queuing problem quite well. If you want to take a look at their showings, here´s their website:
The theater is also very clean and the prices are ok. Their prices range from €3 (special sunday showings) to €8 (weekend evening showings).

Monday, October 29, 2007 - Prison of the Psychotic Damned

Synopsis: In this movie, five ghost hunters spend the night in a place called "Buffalo Central Terminal". It is a long abandoned train terminal which is located deep in the heart of Buffalo´s notorious east-side ghetto. And this terminal is said to be haunted by the people who have died within the Buffalo Central Terminal. At first it was supposed to be a joke, but then this joke turns into a terrifying nightmare. The psychotic dead are beginning to assault the five ghost hunters.

I think the movie was filmed in an excellently chosen location. From this point of view, you could think that it definitely has to be a great movie. But that is the point. It "could" have been a very eerie and scary movie. But instead we have a complete chaos. It is obvious that low budget movies don´t have the best actors of the world in it, that´s not a problem at all, but the story telling and the plot are lamentable. Of course there are a few moments that really scare you, but nothing actually ties together. The story jumps around from here to there and the film actually makes you feel like you´ve missed something. I´m a real big fan of low budget horror movies. I´ve seen many low budget horror movies and I know that it´s hard to put a coherent story together. In this case I unfortunately have to say that the directors have failed. However, the effects in this movie are quite ok and the characters (which are not too good developed throughout the whole movie) are ok as well, but it is all let down by a confusing story and a poor direction.

My Monday Movie Mix-Up Mash-Up #3

Nice one. But it´s a fake. I found this on They´re doing photoshop contests on their website. But it would have been a great movie mistake if it was no fake!

Movie Review: Halloween (2007)

Director: Rob Zombie
This is what made me wanna see it. After "House of 1000 corpses" and "The Devil´s Rejects" I thought this movies MUST be good. Even though it´s the 138th sequel of Halloween.
To put it briefly, it can´t, by no means, keep up with the touchstone of 1978.
The movie itself was kind of dull. Everything was way too predictable. However, it was interesting to see how Michael grew up. But to be honest, I thought it was a good idea to tell the viewers in a quick and not too comprehensive way how he grew up in the first part in 1978. That made it kind of misterious. And for a story that was supposed to take place in the mid-70s this movie was a bit too new-school in my opinion. But after "20 years later" and "Resurrection" what can you expect...
Another interesting fact is that Rob Zombie couldn´t make a decent movie with a budget of $15,000,000. The first Halloween movie, which was directed by John Carpenter, became a cornerstone in the horror movie genre with a budget of only $325,000.
So, if you´re a real Halloween-fan and you´re interested in Rob Zombie´s attempt/version, go see it. If you want to see a great horror movie, stay at home or get the dvd some day.
