MITCH MITTENS RETURNS…..FOR THE REVENGE OF THE CREATURE!

10941464_896492990394758_7031554356452354658_n Hello CInsomniacs and Sleepless Knights! How has your winter been? How many of you can’t wait for Summer raise your hands or leaves? Have you enjoyed this months theme so far? There are numberless things we must catch up on!

MISS MITTENS and I had a great holiday. I was excited to see her on Christmas along with the rest of the Mittens family huddled around in our baskets. We enjoyed Christmas Night with hot cocoa plant food flavored water and MV5BMTQxMDU3MjM0N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTMzNTQ1MjE@._V1_SX214_AL_gathered to talk about how the family has been….or not been. When MISS MITTENS told me this week’s theme, she unveiled her Christmas present to me for the occasion: REVENGE OF THE CREATURE (1955)!

Today I decided to watch it for the very first time. Calm down! Calm down! No need to screech at me, Tiny Seedlings. No need to yell, CInsomniacs! It was an honor to watch it for the very first time today. I have been a big fan of THE GILLMAN. It is not everyday horror fans speak about this creature. He is the only one of his kind and only wants to be adored and accepted by society.

imagesNow, I always thought THE GILLMAN had perished in the first film CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON. To my surprise, he had not died in the depths of the deep sea beyond. A couple of scientists go into the “Black Lagoon” to retrieve the creature to be studied under the close eye of animal psychologist Professor Clete Ferguson. Upon the capture of THE GILLMAN, it ignites a cluster of reporters and media attention spanning all across the world.

In one particular scene, we meet a future familiar face to westerns and epic cinema characters. Ladies and gentleman, CLINT EASTWOOD as Jennings, the forgetful lab assistant. To be honest, his acting is greatly lacking compared to his future films DIRTY HARRY (1971) and ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAZ (1979). What do you think about his performance? revenge-of-the-creature-clint-eastwood

revengeofthecreaturenew2The Creature is then placed in an oceanarium or in modern day terms a 50’s version of Sea World where he is studied and oogled by thousands of onlookers who have come to see him as a tourist attraction piece. We are joined by the beautiful ichthyology student Helen Dobson who wants to study the creature herself. Through the many experiments, THE GILLMAN slowly begins to become intrigued by her.

Of course it is not long till Professor Ferguson and Helen begin to fall in love with one another, igniting The GILLMAN’S fury leading to his breaking out of the tank and attacking innocent bystanders attending the show.

Revenge-of-the-Creature-monster-movies-37195278-260-194He then sneaks into Helen’s dressing room later that night and carries her off to the Lagoon, sending Professor on a huge hunt along with other men to track down the creature. They find them and shoot the creature and the credits roll after the creature swims away to search for love another day.

This sequel was not as impactful as the first film. Much like the cliche that sequels are not as good as the original–this one is true. It is misunderstood in ways of THE GILLMAN’S search but the it is bridging on the bad category. I give his film 5 1/2 out of 10 HYPNOTIC EYES!

Have any more Cinsomniacs or Sleepless Knights tuned into this film? If so, what are your thoughts on it? Do you agree with the rating? Would you like Mitch Mittens to do another review?

Let’s Take a Ride on “SANTA’S SLAY” on Mitch Mittens Reviews!

MMReviews

To think it is already the holidays. Time to gather around for this holiday edition of MITCH MITTEN’S REVIEWS! SANTA’S SLAY(2005) is one of those HUGE misunderstood holiday horror films not many have heard of and few have seen. I viewed it several years ago but it was fantastic to hear you CINSOMNIACS and SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS wished me to review it. Strap yourselves in because here we go!

Twas the Night before Christmas dinner, all through the night the Mason family was hosting a dinner party. Not just any Christmas diner party. A Christmas party that would be the last Christmas party of their life. Mr. Mason (played by the legendary JAMES CAAN) pleads for a “moist” turkey, Gwen’s husband gets “handy” with the golddigger Mrs. Virginia Mason, and the twins nieces bicker over present requests. Then there came a clang on the roof, the thumping of boots, oh who who who comes to visit the Masons this fine Christmas Eve?

santasslay01

Why is it……Santa Clause?

santas-slay-04Or BILL GOLDBERG?

This is only the beginning, we travel to the town of Hells Township (what a name) where he begins “just desserts” holiday murdering spree. Can you imagine growing up with the joyful tales and images of a old man with a swollen belly who brought Christmas joy to the doors of children of all ages to all of a sudden become a murdering giant wielding Christmas decorations, lights, and stripper poles across the town.

douglas_smith_1253934934Why? Why is he doing this? We meet teenager named Nicholas who lives with his somewhat crazy inventor grandfather. Only his grandfather is not as crazy as he may seem. After Nicholas comes home to his grandfather’s homemade bunker, he sits down to hear the true tale of Santa Clause.  According to the tale, Santa (son of Satan) lost a contest with an angel of heaven. The cost? Santa had to cease from killing and slaying for Satan for 1,000 years and turn the official “Day of Slaying” into a day of joy aka Christmas. Now, that time is up and Santa is no longer Mr. Jolly.

SANTAS-SLAY-2The rest of the film is filled with unique kills, thrills, and cheer to keep you wanting more and more. One death in particular will probably be enjoyed or not so enjoyed by Star Trek:TNG fans. I wonder who is going to get his collection of irreplaceable collectables? 

Anyway, this holiday horror extravaganza is the gift that keeps on giving. I officially give this film a 10 out of 10 Hypnotic Eyes! You barely hear about it, it is truly misunderstood, and it’s one of those holiday horror films who should join the space alongside BLACK CHRISTMAS(1974) and SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT(1984).

Have any more Cinsomniacs or Sleepless Knights tuned into these films? If so, what are your thoughts on it? Do you agree with the rating? Would you like Mitch Mittens to do another review in the middle of the week? Leave your comments or private massage and let us know! If you have a suggestion of another film for MITCH MITTENS to review, leave it in the comments. Thank you for “tuning in” and come back for another dose of misunderstood holiday cheer from MITCH MITTENS REVIEWS!
