Corpse Bride (2005)
Joey watches Tim Burton's Corpse Bride, starring the voice of Johnny Depp (who else?) as a shy groom who practices his wedding vows near a grave and ends up married to a murdered bride, voiced by Helena Bonham Carter (who else?). This is one of Joey's favorite Burton films, and he explains why it's basically the grown-up version of Burton's other famous stop motion film, The Nightmare Before Christmas.Coraline vs. Coraline
The Horror Guru compares Neil Gaiman's horror fantasy novella Coraline to the big screen adaptation directed by Henry Selick. Both tell the tale of a young girl who finds a secret door and crosses over into an alternate, unsettling reality, but which does the Guru prefer? The answer may surprise you!Evil Dead (2013)
“Horror remakes are not generally well-liked. I realize that’s about as obvious an observation as noting that some people aren’t terribly fond of puppy-killing, but it’s true all the same.”The Possession (2012)
UPDATED Feb. 1, 2013 with commentary from Count Jackula and Horror Guru!
Jealousy abounds as Count Jackula (inspired by The Possession, starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyra Sedgwick) finds love in an unexpected and dangerous place. Can the Horror Guru break them up before it's too late, or will Jackula's wayward romance end their friendship for good?War of the Worlds (2005)
“While I wouldn’t go so far as to say that it’s one of Steven Spielberg’s best, his version of War of the Worlds is high up there on the rather short list of remakes that are actually better than the originals.”The Return of the King (1980)
“His approach is cut short as he sees the reason a swarm of Orcs hasn’t gotten around to curb-stomping him into oblivion: they’re all dead. Naturally, we get a monologue explaining this, and I think even the five year olds watching at this point are probably going, ‘Move it along, goddammit, I got shit to do today!’”
