Silent Night, Bloody Night..

When a horror fan thinks of Christmas this usually comes to mind: "Black Christmas", "Christmas Evil" and the most obvious one: "Silent Night, Deadly Night". It's rare to see a lot of love for Silent Night, Bloody Night, oh sure, there was a fan site for it and it did become sorta popular in the 80's but now it's all talk of the three movies I mentioned above, I guess you can say Bloody Night is underrated and has a small cult following.

Silent Night, Bloody Night is about an old mansion that's been through a lot back in the day, so much creepy shit went down there and you'd think that place would be knocked down in the present time (the 70's really) but, It still stands. This is a movie where you see a lot of early slasher moments, like the not seeing the killer's face, the first person camera walking and hiding, but it's mainly a mystery film, there's a lot of twists and turns and even a good little surprise when the movie is about to end and the setting is fantastic! It's all cold and snowing and at night it's dark and creepy, and the mansion is real creepy. I first saw this movie in 2007 and I liked it, I didn't get it at first but after watching it a couple of more times I pretty much understood it, so if you plan to see it I suggest you watch it another time or find more info on the internet because there's a lot of confusing things in this film.

This is a must see for Christmas, it's in the public domain so you'll find this move anywhere for a cheap price, the prints are not so good but I think it's meant to be seen like that, I really love watching movies with the little lines of the film (I guess scrapes you can say) and it's quite dark so it isn't all light and clear, it almost feels like your watching it at a Drive-In. 7/10.

"My Tutor", the comedic/erotic story of a young man and his French tutor.

This is one Crown International movie I've always forgot to check out, I always heard it's pretty good so I decided to finally grab it and check it out for myself.

My Tutor is about a guy that fails his French exam, in order for him to get into Stanford University (his father picks his career and school to attend) he must pass the exam, so his father hires a female tutor to tutor the young failure all summer long so he can pass that stupid French exam.

 The movie begins with him and his friends going to whorehouse to lose their viriginty and wacky things happen, like the main guy of the movie passes out on a woman's huge rack (really huge) and his best friend (Crispin Glover) gets into some bondage crap and tries to run away from the hooker that wants to whip him or whatever. From there we see the guy meet his female tutor, he's right away attracted to her and he can't help but think about her in such erotic ways.

My Tutor is an odd T&A comedy but it's lots of fun to watch and the actress that plays the tutor is very hot. The movie is also also very 80's (obviously), so if you dig the 80's and Crown International movies, then this is a must see! 7/10.
