Good Tidings

Good Tidings, a psycho slasher Christmas movie, is scheduled for release in December of 2016. Confused as to why they’re advertising it now in October of 2015 when Christmas is just mere weeks away. (Have you picked out what you’re getting me yet? I take anything in a size 40 oz.)

Good Tidings

What waiting will yield: “A homeless war veteran with a chequered past must rely on a side of himself once thought buried when he and his companions are targeted by three vicious psychopaths wearing Santa suits on Christmas Day.”

Psychopaths wearing Santa suits – has the world gone mad? That’s just not cool, man. Yeah, it’s been done dozens of holidays before. But that doesn’t make it any less wrong.

The Amityville Legacy

Also being advertised now and scheduled for a late 2016 release is YET ANOTHER Amityville Horror spin-off, this one titled The Amityville Legacy. If you think that’s a groaner, check out the seriously weak plot which attempts to milk a cow that dried up years ago…

“A cursed antique toy monkey from the original DeFeo home wrecks havoc and possesses a father after being gifted during an annual family reunion…”

On second thought, maybe psycho Santas aren’t so bad after all.

Halloween For Christmas

All Hallows' Eve 2

Here’s a good idea – make a Halloween-themed horror movie and release it on December 1. I know it makes you sick to your stomach think about it, but while they’re at it, why not release an Easter-themed movie on Groundhog’s Day?

Not sure why the folks behind All Hallows’ Eve 2, the sequel to 2013’s All Hallows’ Eve, have decided to bypass October altogether for their movie release. October is the reigning champ for all things horror, albeit out-pacing Christmas by a slim margin.

And since they’re screwing it up with the release, why not go all the way and issue a sales poster accompanied by absolutely no plot information whatsoever? How difficult can it be to burp out a blurb? If you don’t want anyone to see the movie, you’re going about it in the right way.

All Hallows Eve

Here’s what went down in All Hallows’ Eve, the first one:

While watching two children on Halloween night, the babysitter finds an old VHS tape in the kids’ trick or treat bag. The tape features three tales of terror, all linked together by a murderous clown. As the night goes on, strange things begin to occur in the house. It isn’t long before the babysitter learns the horrifying truth…the maniacal clown is slowly working his way into her reality.”

I’m assuming All Hallows’ Eve 2 continues the maniacal ways of Art the Clown and includes more linked horror tales. Guess I won’t find out as I’ll be well into my Christmas horror season of movies by then. Art’s just gonna have to wait until next year until I get my seasonal flavor back.
