30 Days of Horror: Day 16

"Day 16 - Your favorite childhood themed horror film"

A couple of years ago I did a blog-a-thon about children fucking shit up and if I was aware of this movie then it certainly would've been put in. I'm talking about "Home Movie".

"Home Movie" is one of those movies like "The Blair Witch Project" or "Paranormal Activity" where the entire movie is shot through a home camcorder. It focuses on a family who moved to some house in the woods. There are two kids who suddenly start acting weird and as the movie progresses, the kids get more and more disturbed until things take a real fucked up turn.

It's a good movie, even if it's a bit slow. Adrian Pasdar, who is probably most famous for playing Nathan on "Heroes", plays the dad, who is a Pastor and all the religious things he does to help his kids. I won't get into all the messed up things the kids do in the movie but most of them you need to not blink or you'll miss it cause the camera (being held by Dad most of the time) turns it off right away.

This is really a good movie with a creepy vibe. And it'll make you not want to have kids.

Yup. I own this movie. Bought it on a whim. I did surprisingly enjoy it!

I mainly like the parts where anytime the Dad finds something fucked up, he's wearing some goofy costume. Like at the end, he was dressed like the Easter Bunny.
