Pinpoint in space
Sequels to horror films are almost always well received, and audiences eagerly anticipate the arrival of the genre's next really terrifying experience. However, what happens when the antagonists of horror movies go to outer space? The following are five horror movie villains that traveled to outer space. Some of them were successful, while others did not fare as well.
Leprechaun 4: In Space is the series' sleeper. Yes, it's set in space, but that's what makes it awesome. Leprechaun 4 takes a ludicrous idea and makes it "unique." Practical effects, clever murders, and Leprechaun quips will have you rolling. If you like the Leprechaun series or horror flicks, watch Leprechaun 4: In Space.
A interesting continuation of the Hellraiser series as well as a prequel, Hellraiser: Bloodline is a must-have for fans of the franchise. The narrative jumps back and forth in time between the years 1700 and 1990, and then again between the years 2200 and 2500. My anticipation for the fourth film in the series was not very great, and let's be really honest here: the only reason I'm seeing this is so I can see more of Pinhead and the other Cenobites. A performance by Doug Bradley is something to look forward to every time because he never loses that chilly, menacing, and demonic air about him. This makes no sense, and it's hard to understand, but who cares about any of those other things anyway? Even if you are familiar with every aspect of the Hellraiser franchise, you should see Bloodline only for Pinhead's scenes because of how horrifying they are. If you like Clive Barker's prior works, such as Hellraiser or any of the others, you should definitely give this one a try. It is nonetheless a really interesting trip, despite the fact that there isn't a whole lot of logic to it.
I have to confess that I was fascinated when I heard that Critters 4 would be set in space. How could they possible outdo the previous Critters films? But then I saw the cast list, and it didn't seem good. Dourif, Brad? What about Angela Bassett? Anders Hove, a well-known Danish actor? I simply didn't see how this could work.
And when I finally saw Critters 4, my fears were proven right. It had a bad plot, bad characters, and was just a copy of other franchises set in a bad place. From a fan's point of view, what hurts the most is that the things that made the previous games interesting and unique are either gone or not there at all. Critters 4 is a huge disappointment and a total mess.
Dracula 3000 is one of those rare bad horror movies that's so bad it's nearly unwatchable. I love to hate Dracula 3000. Even though it's atrocious throughout its entire run time my main gripe is with the ending was a total cop-out left me utterly unsatisfied . I had hoped "Dracula in Space" would be so bad it's good, but instead it was so bad it was terrible. The premise is fun, but the acting is bad, and the dialogue is absolutely unbearable. I recommend watching it if you want to be miserable the rest of the day.
Coolio, too. Coolio is the star. Is it true I said that?
The most notorious horror movie sequel to take place in space is called "Jason X." Jason Voorhees is the real-life embodiment of the horror movie myth and legend. It doesn't matter how he got Jason Voorhees in space into space, but he did. Nobody really cares about the reason why he's in space. The only thing that counts is that Jason is out in space and ready to cause mayhem.
It is my view that Jason X is interesting to see because of the easter eggs and allusions to prior Friday the 13th films, in addition to his transformation into Uber Jason.
Although this film isn't for everyone, aficionados of campy, cheesy slasher flicks will like it.
