I recently acquired a mini film cell from an up and coming horror store called Horror Warehouse, it was for the ‘I Know…’ film and just looks damn good in my slowly building horror collection.
Here it is in all its glory:

Oh and on Wikipedia on a fourth entry in the franchise:
In 2008, it was suggested that there could be a fourth sequel to the series, ignoring the third film entirely. The film, supposedly titled Last Summer 3D, would mark the beginning of a new trilogy in the series, similar to role of the 2011 film Scream 4, and would feature the main cast of the first two films. Initially, the film was given a release date of April 20, 2011. However, it was later announced that production was cancelled. There are currently no knew proposals for future films in the series.
Stranded after a car accident, a medical school student and her friends try to find shelter – only to cross paths with a deranged killer.
Ahh Tara Reid this is where you ended up! In the good genre too! All fooling aside we really haven’t heard much from this actress in some time. Hopefully the film will be even half good…maybe.
You’re not actually sure what’s going on at the start as there’s a chase sequence involving two scientists and flashes of someone in a wheelchair who’s eyes suddenly open when one of them dies.
Fast forward a bit to what seems to be a crash that doesn’t seem to be that bad – although how did they end up crashing in a wide open mountain space anyway? Oh and cutting through a forest to ‘save miles’ isn’t a good idea, especially in a horror film (e.g. Wrong Turn). The group of hikers (I think) come across what looks like an old army facility as one of them sets off the lights – do I really need to say where this is going?
The story basically evolves around a ‘sleeping’ deranged killer that hunts each member dow one by one. I must admit the build up was good and the discovery of the two scientists was a nice touch, but really other than the blood and more chase scenes; it’s your average ‘teens in an enclosed space being hunted’ scenario.

This is just a small article on a label I have found over the past few years over here in Northern Ireland (UK basically). I used to find these everywhere like in old book and dvd stores, HMV, Virgin Media (when it was still open), NV as well I think, They were cheap indie horror films to say the least.
I will update this article with all my ‘Film 2000 Shock Horror Collection’ films, just to show you the style and substance they’ve had on the B movie genre.
Unfortunately there is no official Film 2000 website anymore – there was one quite a while ago with the full library and new releases on the front page, crude but that just like the label. To be honest there were a select few favourites I loved in the collection, films like ‘Jigsaw‘, and ‘Shower of Blood‘ two good titles that could have had made part of a fun night in.
I miss these days, the thrill of opening a film not knowing anything about other that ‘what a brilliant cover design’ or just the label banner adorning the front of it. eBay here I come!
I could trawl through my film collection and list some others but here’s some more:
- Shadows Of The Dead
- Wax Mask
- Camp Blood
- Blood Gnome (actually pretty good)
- Head Cheerleader, Dead Cheerleader
- Blood Dancers
You could say their releases were crude or schlock horror, but in my opinion it was just your standard indie horror with a few gems thrown in for good measure. I miss theNow my question is, Film 2000 are you still operating? Can’t seem to track down any information on it, or many of their films released through the label. If anyone has any other titles or even a release list, then please contact me using the either the form here or reply to this article – would be very much appreciated.
Right so I booked the films that I’m going to see in belfast in the week or so leading up to Halloween (check other posts to get caught up). Reserved tickets for ‘The Blithe Spirit’ (1945) – ‘The Blair Witch Project’ (1999) – ‘Ringu’ (1998). How cool will this be

Five campers arrive in the mountains to examine some property they have bought, but are warned by the forest ranger Roy McLean that a huge machete-wielding maniac has been terrorising the area. Ignoring the warnings, they set up camp, and start disappearing one by one. If that sounds too run-of-the-mill, there’s a genuinely shocking plot twist half-way through…
Wasn’t really expecting the punch this low budget slasher gave as it was they first time I had checked the film out after numerous attempts by one friend who shallr main anonymous haha.
The one thing you take away from all the camp slashing and scene splicing (you’ll see it when one second she’s at the bonfire and next second the guy is sat beside her) is the creep-tastic score. God it’s one of those show, brooding scores that builds up to something crazy.
The make-up effects as well were well done for being a bad print on the DVD I have (thin green lines every so often) so I’ll be looking for better print or if there’s a ‘remastered’ version floating about.
Screaming kids in a backwoods atmosphere is never nice and this just seeps and before you think something is abut to happen then BAM – something else does. Think Friday 13th or the weirdness of Black Christmas to truly appreciated this small gem of a film.

I’ll be booking into watch this at the ‘Apparitions’ event at the Queens Film Theatre, and here’s the trailer for it:
Ignore the start, just that ‘Technicolor’ happy-go-lucky intro that made my think ‘damn is this it’ – but keep watching.
One of my good friends is a big fan of the TCM films so thought I’d put up an article on the site here.
The site is blog based with up-to-date news, a Movies section (information on all the TCM films), a Forum which is pretty active, an Amazon Store, and a Contact area.
If you’re a fan at all then this site has it all, I was impressed with the amount of detail in a lot of the posts o the forum about the films and characters, they definitely know their films.

Three college cheerleaders use their martial arts know-how to save their Sensei from mafia kidnappers, but must keep their extra curricular activities a secret in order to make it into an Ivy League school.
What a fun film this turned out to be! I’d heard of it before but never gave it a second thought but damn it’s like a Mean Girls type crossed with some babe-tastic action. This is definitely one for the guys!
Of course there’s the obvious scenes of cheerleaders strutting their stuff, strip clubs, oh yes and ninjas…what makes this film a ‘fun night in’ watch. Quite a good number of action scenes follow (Army guys for one) and the ‘profile’ scenes are quite well done too.
The sailor scene was a bit of a wash-out (their acting) but the girls see them off in good fashion – plus I mistakingly thought that the actor ‘Omar J. Dorsey’ was someone else completely (it’ll come to me).
George Takei plays his role well as Hiroshi who trains the girls, as well as running a strip club and in his spare time trains people in karate. Phew that was a lot.

Lance Preston and the crew of “Grave Encounters”, a ghost-hunting reality television show, are shooting an episode inside the abandoned Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital, where unexplained phenomena has been reported for years. All in the name of good television, they voluntarily lock themselves inside the building for the night and begin a paranormal investigation, capturing everything on camera.
Right so really this is sort of the same plot as ‘Atrocious’ but slightly better. We’re introduced quickly to the characters of the TV show that is their ‘final’ one due to, well, this being another ‘found footage’ film.
A lot of the footage is mixed from various cameras that’s installed within the building and catches a lot of spooky noises – especially the night vision shots which are quite cool.
The film touches on EVP and EMF which I thought to be very interesting and piqued my own brain into writing a web series (well it’s I’ve been thinking about it for months).
Arguments start to happen as they can’t seem to find a crew member and with the lights out it get’s very creepy. Never go walking alone in a Mental Institute or you’ll fall on your face – like one member.
It’s actually a good premise for a film but if too many of these come out in the next few months (‘Evidence’ for instance) then the novelty will die very quick, if it hasn’t already.
