The Holiday Horror Hangover

Missing last weeks Hangover due to technical difficulties, or better yet, nothing good on cable TV, was a shame, but this week is only slightly better to be completely honest. Thanks once again to SyFy for making this Sunday somewhat salvageable with a few decent (well, maybe decent is being kind) things to check out on the boob tube. Drinking is at an all time high with the stress of the holidays all up in our faces, so I feel it very important to provide some cinema de poop for you all to enjoy this Sunday afternoon.

SyFy brings da funk at 9:00 AM with Never Cry Werewolf (2008). Yeah, I know, 9:00 AM is a lot early for a Hangover movie and I usually never start earlier than 10:00, but them's the breaks kid. Anyways, this is clearly a Werewolf movie if you didn't notice and I personally love werewolf movies, especially when they star Kevin fucking Sorbo. You know, HERCULES, or, God amongst men. If the movie seems familiar from the trailer, then you would be correct in thinking so, because it's pretty much Fright Night minus the Vampires. That's okay; it looks like a fun pile of Werewolf pooh either way.

At 10:00 AM, a film called Johnny Gaddaar (2007) is on IFC. I just kinda stumbled upon this one and it sounded interesting and looks to be that way at least. Johnny Gaddaar is described as an Indian crime-thriller noir-film thingy, which sounds cool enough. The trailer is more than promising, though it looks a little like a Guy Ritchie film, but I like Guy Ritchie films, so there you go.

The Werewolves keep-a-comin' (gross) at 11:00 AM with Cursed (2005) on SyFy channel. This came up on a previous Hangover, so no need to get into it again, but in case it's your cup of tea, I thought I'd provide it.

Pulling into 1:00 PM, Wrong Turn 2: Dead End (2007) is on (thank baby jesus for) SyFy. I have actually never seen this installment outside of bits and pieces, but I loved the first film and have heard great things about this sequel, which also seems to garner a mention from most fans that Rollins is in it. With that said, this shall be my official pick of the week, for this weak week!

At 2:00 PM, plan on taking some time to Meet the Santas (2005) over at Hallmark. This is the long awaited sequel to the smash hit Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus and stars Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol's Steve Guttenberg and that "I don't know if she's hawt or not" chick from Wings. Looks tight, son.

Already running out of gas at 3:00 PM with Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead (2008) on SyFy. I didn't even know that there was a sequel to Joy Ride, but I surprisingly enjoyed the first film quite a bit. I am not so sure about this one though...just the trucker's voice alone is enough to send me back to Hallmark for some more Fa la-la-la Lifetime, or wait, that's Lifetime...whatever.

That just about does it...I know there wasn't much, but at least there was enough shit on TV worth telling you about today. Hope you have a very special and merry Hangover this wonderful Sunday afternoon.


  1. Funny, I was always confused as well as to whether or not that chick from Wings was hot. Didn't she put out a country album?

    And Rollins is the man. I'd watch him in anything.

  2. Woo hoo, CURSED and WT2, two of my favorite guilty pleasures!

  3. POT: Rollins is the man is correct!

    I think both of our decisions are made as to whether that Wings chick is hot or not with this ball of magic!

    Carl: I ended up falling asleep during it, but the opening 10 minutes of WT2 were awesome!

  4. I have yet to see the first Wrong Turn. It's worth it? Honestly? Because I love Rollins and I hate watching sequels before I check out the first one.

    I've been dippin' and dodgin' holiday films unless Chevy Chase, Macualay Culkin, or Bill Murray are in them. That's my plan and I'm sticking to it!

  5. I really enjoyed the first Wrong Turn Ashlee and I would certainly recommend it...if not just for the pure fact that Emmanuelle Chriqui is in it!

    And you can't go wrong with the holiday classics that you mention either...they are staples for a reason!
