The J360 Mystery Box#1 (10/14/2021)

Step right up, Step right up!
Here is the J360 Mystery Box to decide what we’ll do tonight.

It’s a 1 out of 4 chance, tonight’s content could be an additional MiniByte, PowerPlay, or J-Man episode and then it could be nothing at all.

Let’s see what fate will decide for us.

Monster Fest Rating: Wishmaster 4/ The Prophecy Fulfilled

Monster Fest Rating: Wishmaster 4/The Prophecy Fullfilled

The Djinn’s back for a fourth time, and acquires the long awaited third wish but he falls in love with the main character instead of doing his job to add on more film time.

You can tell they had no idea where to go so instead of the Prophecy being fulfilled try declined.

I could say this movie was more insulting than Wishmaster 3 but at least this one has a Rating for  trying to build something but then gives it up after 40 minutes.

Btw you could make a drinking game out of how many times everyone says “sex” in the film, and pay attention as the Djinn seeks out love advice for the next two acts of the movie.

It could have been done in a clever way but…not if you’re lazy.

This film isn’t worth any more of my efforts.

1 Bloody Knuckle.

Monster Fest Rating: Wishmaster 3

The Djinn is back…and in small doses.
This movie was so bad that the original actor who voiced and played the Djinn left the series before this movie could be created.

This resulting film is not making fun of those who carried on or made the movie but damn if it isn’t trying to be a good one. So the Djinn is back and he’s trying to bring more Djinn into this dimension as he’s released on a college campus.

However we don’t see much of him, we follow a boring woman’s story, her love sick boyfriend, and all sorts of the Djinn asking where she is while being in the guise of her teacher.  The Djinn hardly gets revenge on these damn college kids until after an hour or so…

There were some cool battle sequences but my suspense of disbelief was gone whereas my dislike grew.

Eventually they did stop the Djinn but…it was obtuse

This movie gets no rating…I just can’t…

Next!

Monster Fest Rating: Wishmaster 2

Wishmaster continues.  This movie dealt with wishes, souls, and an evil monster known as the Djinn.  Unlike a traditional genie, he’s very much malevolent spirit who wants to bring his buddies into our dimension by using our deepest most desires to do so.

Yeah the first one was stellar and surely a 2nd one could stay the course? No…not entirely.

This one was ok at best from an annoying main character to a very long set up for the Djinn to actually start going all out and raising hell.  However when the Djinn did use his cruel magic, he left an impact.

There was even a scene where the Djinn used an inmate’s wish to make his lawyer screw himself.

Yeah so…don’t expect too much from that but the movie does pay off in the third act when the main character finally tricks him.

It just took a lot to get there…so it ends up with 3 bloody knuckles.

Monster Fest Rating: Wishmaster

Ah yes Wishmaster, a 1994 horror classic at least to me. This movie dealt with wishes, souls, and an evil monster known as the Djinn. Unlike a traditional genie, he’s very much malevolent spirit who wants to bring his buddies into our dimension by using our deepest most desires to do so.

This movie was underrated in its time, it also featuring cameos by plenty of horror icons too. It also seemed like everyone was having a great time making the film too.

I enjoyed seeing the carnage, struggles, and effects in the film. I actually cared enough to see how the main character would survive the Djinn’s cruel game. The way things were arranged and how charismatic the Djinn was made this easily a 5 bloody knuckles rating.

2021 Monster Fest Rating: Abbott and Costello Meets Frankenstein

After getting through the mess that was House of Dracula. I needed a change of pace so I’m delving into the Abbott and Costello classic.

This one is an absolute gem, and a fascinating mix between the genres. I would prefer this to be a grand finale than House of Dracula.

There’s sequels where the comic duo meets the invisible man, and later the Mummy.

I rate this one: 5 Bloody Knuckles.

2021 Monster Fest Movie Rating: House Of Frankenstein

The House Of Frankenstein.

The collection of universal monsters in one movie? Sounds epic right?

Well it is and it isn’t, it plays as a special swan song for the Universal line by combining each franchise. However the only one with a viable story arc is The Wolf Man, Dracula is dispatched earlier and we eventually see the dramatic conclusion with Frankenstein’s Monster coming back to life.

Connecting us to each Monster is Boris Karloff himself playing the central mad doctor whom along with a hunchback side kick are off to use Frankenstein’s notes to gain revenge. It’s fascinating to see Karloff interact with each monster as he’s playing Dr. Frankenstein without the name.

I’d go further but I rather you see this movie, it’s a delight but only if you’re a fan of these classics.

I rate it 3 bloody knuckles

2021 Monster Fest Rating: The Wolf Man (1941)

Bring on the bloody knuckles!
Ok starting the fest off right with this universal classic.

The Monster Fest is in full swing as The Wolf Man scores a perfect 5 on the rating scale. This one has it all, a tortured protagonist, a doomed love story, dark atmosphere, and we’ll written characters.

I find myself replaying the Wolf Man often during the spooky season because Talbot’s story is so enriching and everyone complements each other well. Plus this is one of those films that grew well as time moved on so it’s a horror gem far as I’m concerned.

I give 5 Bloody Knuckles!!
