Masters Of Horror! (Peter Jackson)

Basically, the same guy as Guillermo Del Toro.
Harder to tell part than The Soskas.
Guillermo even almost directed "The Hobbit", back when it was one movie.

Ah, remember those innocent days?


Bad Taste (1987)

Aliens are harvesting humans for fast food.
It's "Evil Dead", meets a Monty Python cartoon.

"I'm born again!!".

Meet The Feebles (1989)

Monty Python does "The Muppet Show".

Meh, "Avenue Q", is better.

Dead Alive (1992)

A.K.A. "Brain Dead".

Jackson clearly set out to out-gore "Evil Dead 2", and I think he succeeded.
Gross throughout, but famous for the lawnmower bit at the end.

Heavenly Creatures (1994)

Two young girls become best friends, then lesbian lovers, then obsessed with each other, and lost in a shared fantasy world, and then, they kill the brunette's mother.

Based on a true story.
Weird flick.
Weird case.

The Frighteners (1996)

Michael J. Fox is a ghostbuster, but the ghosts are in on the scam.

An evil ghost, possibly The Reaper, complicates matters.
Hi-jinks ensue.

The Lord of the Rings (2001-2003)

See here.

So, Frodo is currently doing this awful show about a regular guy, and a dog who he sees as a man in a dog suit.
Frodo is the regular guy.

This bullshit shares a network with "Sons Of Anarchy", and "Louie".

Yes, I have expended anger on this state of affairs.
You had to even guess?

King Kong (2005)

See here.

The Lovely Bones (2009)

Heartstring tugging ghost junk.
I really hope parents of real murder victims didn't see this.

The Hobbit (2012-2014)

See here.

I was right to be cynical.
Seen the first now, the Rings ones were better, I'll pass on the sequels, thanks.

Ah, well, we'll always have the Rings movies, and "Dead Alive".

Up next, Joe Dante.
