Woke up this morning to a light dusting of ... SNOW !! Getting my chill on with a twin bill of frosty fun this evening . First , one of my fave Animated flicks ever FROZEN . Next , one of the best horror sequels to come down the pipe in ..well ..ever , COLD PREY II .
2013's 13 Eerie tells the tale of six Forensic undergrads who travel to a former penitentiary housed on an island in the Eerie straits , where some nasty secret Government type experimentation occurred on those whom were housed there. This naturally leads to all sorts of nasty goings-on , involving the re-animated prisoners and our protagonists , who fare poorly in said goings-on.
Listen , I'm a sucker for all things Katherine Isabelle . And the fair Katherine looks fetching here , and gives a solid performance in the lead role . The rest of the cast are fairly efficient here as well , though their characters really aren't anything to write home about . Our Professor is a bit too obtuse in his disbelief of seemingly every damn thing he's told about , and this becomes grating rather quickly . The hired hand , not really sure of what exact role this guy has , he's supposed to be proficient in electronics maintenance , cooking , boat captaining , pot smoking , you name it , is a bit of a welcome relief here , the familiar , yet fun , ' I know something ain't right from the get-go ' type . The students themselves , are really 'okay' at best , as far as development , or interest , go . They're basically on hand to serve as ' zombie ' fodder , and to that end , fit the bill nicely .
There's fun to be had with 13 Eerie , there are some cool kills , and some nods to some great films of this ilk before including The Evil Dead (in a fairly cool 'tree' sequence ) and even the famous ' splinter scene ' from Lucio Fulci's 1979 classic Zombie (during said 'tree' sequence) is...ahem .... winked at , and the undead themselves , are good for giggles .
Said undead , well kids , these are not your parents Zombies , for sure . Though they do show an interest in internal workings of the human body like many in their field , these sumbitches are Olympic quality sprinters , as well as damn near impossible to put-down , head shots be damned . As for the overall look , they're kind of in that throwback ' rotting flesh ' type of vein , which was a nice touch .
Hey , 13 Eerie doesn't come anywhere close to re-inventing the wheel as far as the sub-genre goes , it's far too predictable for that . But it's got good intentions , doesn't take itself too seriously , and best of all , has Katherine Isabelle . I've seen a lot worse .
Rating 5.5/10 .
Haven't seen this flick in ages . Don't even really remember all that much about it , to be honest . I've been on a Katherine Isabelle kick lately , so I thought I'd throw this in. Tonight's viewing selection is FREDDY VS. JASON .
