Let me be clear, the IT in which I am reviewing today is the ORIGINAL, not the NEW one. I will not be reviewing the new one until it is requested. I don’t like clowns at all and only saw this one as a dare years ago and remember about it. I’m not even sure if Pennywise is in the new one or if he goes by a different name
But since I saw it, I can and will review it. I may as well do something constructive with my childhood torment right? Anyways, It starts with a little boy chasing a paper boat in the water, then Pennywise nabs him kills him. Cut to the brother mourning. And the parents actually yell at him for being in his dead brother’s room.
I am going to go on a bit of a tangent here. In my opinion, anyone can grieve however they darn well please within legal bounds. What this boy did was not illegal. The parents should not have been angry. If you have two children and one dies, your responsibility is to that second child. You can mourn too, but unless it leads to physical harm of anyone, they may also mourn however they want. Period.
Back to Pennywise, he kills a bunch of people, yadda yadda. No one knows how to stop him. The kids team up to kill him. Old Horror song and dance that everyone knows. As a result they kill the thing and go on. but as adults they realize it didn’t exactly work. And so they go back to do it all again.
I won’t spoil more. I believe I spoiled too much already. But anyways, like I said. I will not be doing the new IT until it is requested in the comments. So if you want that, get typing! 🙂
I give Pennywise 2.5 screams out of 5. you can buy it here.
Before we begin our review of Slendytubbies, you can play the game for free here
Slendytubbies starts with the normal but even more poorly animated Teletubbies doing their thing. Playing with their tummies, eating Tubbiecustard, cleaning with Nu-Nu. The normal day. But they go to bed and wake up in the middle of the night to find Tinky Winky (the purple one) gone. He’s crazy eyed and out for Tubbieblood. It’s played basically as a copy-paste of Slenderman, only potentailly more creepy by using your own toddlerhood memories against you.
I never personally played this game, but a YouTuber I’ve been watching for years did. I will link his gameplay here The graphics was snowy, like an old tv. That made the game a little scary even with the disconnect of not actually playing. But in the end,it is only a copy. Slenderman was, is, and always will be better, mostly because it was first.
All in all not a bad game, fun, a little creepy, and most of all, free. I would play it if I have no plans for Halloween, which I usually don’t. I would certainly recommend playing this game in the dark as you eat the Halloween candy supposed to be pass out to kids. You know you’ve done it, now play a game along with it.
I give this game 3 Baby Suns out of 5. For the fact that is a good, free game. But is literally just a Slenderman copy-paste.
Today on our month long Halloween Spooktacular I thought I would review an old but in my humble opinion good video game. SAW, based on the original movie that shook the cores of the people of it’s time. In a short summary a terminally ill man only known to the public as Jigsaw took people who he deemed as not valuing their lives enough and put them through trials to try to prove to him and themselves that they want to live. But in the universe he technically never killed them, only created puzzles in which you die upon failure to solve it.
I find this logic to be flawed. He set those traps, if they die, he killed them. Period. But that’s not all. What about kidnapping? Or Conspiracy to Commit Murder? Those are charges to put him away too, but no one talks about it in either the game, nor the movies. All in all SAW has two games, but today we focus on the first one. However to my knowledge there are also seven SAW movies. A big disproportion that I believe should be fixed.
The graphics for the first one is what you’s expect for older games. But I believe that is equal parts due to it’s age and on purpose. It makes the game creepier as a whole in my opinion to have the older look. Originally it was launched on the PS3 system. But later moved to the Xbox 360 as well. It was developed by Zombie Studios and published by Konami. I’m not sure if you can, but maybe try the Konami Code in game? It would be fun if not working at least.
I find these two to be very credible companies when it comes to games. But beware of the mature content. Blood. Gore. Jump-scares. Dirty needles, and main character death. This game is not for the faint of heart. It is a horror game for a reason. The second game is arguably more mortifying, but we will get there on a later date. I would recommend this game, 3.5 Creepy Jigsaw Puppets out of 5.
Let me know what to review next! Look forward to a review (hopefully) every day this month. Due to this being a month long venture, suggestions are imperative. Until next time. Boo!
(To readers whom are reading in the Video Games section. Read the Halloween Spooktacular! You won’t regret it! 🙂 )
Final thing you can buy the game Here
Ready for All Hallows Eve? You can prepare with this movie, Happy Death Day coming to a theater near you on Friday October 13th. You can watch the trailer here. Personally I like the types of horror movies similar to Happy Death Day. Not for the blood, but for the suspense. Who is the Killer? Why are they doing this? Why is she reliving the day over and over again? I know it’s so she can solve her murder, but why is she able to? I mean, does she have powers? Is the killer doing this because they want her to know?
There is something in the trailer itself beyond that aesthetic that bothers me. When she writes notes to herself with clues about the killer. I’m not worried about the clues being in obvious places, because when she is killed going back to the beginning of the day should reset it anyway. So no one would have seen it. But that is the problem. If they day resets with no changes, the clues are missing and must be rewritten every time.
I am sure that the notes will be there when she wakes from death in the morning either with or without more likely some explanation as to why they still exist. These are the kind of continuity errors I hate. I will only accept something that shouldn’t be happening if explained in a way that makes logical sense and is not obviously some excuse. Though I do not know much about this movie except for what I can gather from the trailer linked above. I do know that this movie has some of what I deem very credible people on the team, so you bet I’m going to see it.
As for whether or not you should, not if you can’t stand a lot of gore, blood, suspense, and jumpscares most likely. I’m going to try to look past any time based continuity errors, but if you can’t I don’t recommend watching, you may only end up angering yourself.
I give Happy Death Day an unknown for now until I can actually see the movie. Though I May not be able to on opening night, but it is definitely on my watch list.
