Bad Horror Movie Sequel Wednesdays #8 Leprechaun 4: In Space

Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, I aim once again towards the bottom of the barrel. A movie so bad that it really isn't worth rewatching pass the first time. A movie you really can't take seriously in any shape or form. I am talking about Leprechaun 4: In Space, a while back I briefly talked about this with Jason X. This is one of the worst usage of a horror movie icon I ever seen.


This has a totally different feel from most Leprechaun movies. Majority of this movie takes place in space. As stated in another blog, putting horror icons that don't belong in space is a horrible idea. This stands as one of the absolute worst I have ever seen. Not even Warwick Davis himself can save this movie.

Leprechaun 4: In Space involves the Leprechaun kidnapping a selfish princess. A group of space marines came to an unknown planet to save her. This led to a scene that I still can't believe got in the movie. Leprechaun comes out from a man's private area. I remember my brother told me about that not seeing it until we watched the movie.

They go out of their way to reference Star Wars in the worst possible way imagine. A space marine gets greedy to start stealing his gold. Common knowledge you don't touch any part of his gold or you end up dead. No exception here because Leprechaun transformed his cane into a light saber. Not my favorite light saber reference in a movie. Sharknado 3 did that better & that's a shark movie so there's no excuse.

The humor do not work in any possible way. Usually Leprechaun is very entertaining but not here. This has the record for having the most bad guys in an Leprechaun movie. I don't even need to tell you this movie has an leprechaun. You also have an alien princess, a crazy scientist & a confused space marine robot what. Yeah I'm not making that up he dresses up like a lady later on.

The main scientist gets becomes a mutated spider creature. I felt it should've stick to just the leprechaun. They could've focus more on him in areas they should've instead of how they actually did. A great example of this is most kill scenes are boring. Honestly I can't name a single kill worth rewatching.

You find out they found a way to shrink & grow things in size. Later on Leprechaun gets hit by accident by that beam to become a giant. This is where the movie really falls apart. I felt they could've did more to make even that being as brief as it was more entertaining. I don't care for any of the cast in this movie.

Leprechaun 4: In Space not once ever called the leprechaun what he is. They kept calling him a creature or alien. The big problem with calling him an alien is he often kills humans in his movies. I am aware there's so many alien movies. This doesn't technically count as one of them. Leprechaun came from Earth but it never told us once how he got on another planet.

The leprechaun does have many powers but it never stated exactly what was his limit. What we do know is it depends on how much of his gold he has. He goes most of the movie without it & still killed most of the marines. If you seen Leprechaun 1, I think you already seen my point. For those that haven't seen any of the Leprechaun movies.

It doesn't display how weak the leprechaun should've been without his gold. A good amount of what he does requires a lot of gold to do. I honestly can't name a single scene not even very short ones I like. Leprechaun 4: In Space title is telling you the truth at least. At the same time it is still miles better than Leprechaun: Origins. Please don't even get me started on that movie.

Leprechaun 4: In Space has so many major problems keeping it from being good. Actually this is one of my least favorite horror movie sequels of all time. It never made sense why they would make this in the first place. Can you believe what did inspire this abomination was over a dumb joke? Someone put Leprechaun's face on Tom Hanks' face of Apollo 13.

Yeah this was the very thing to suddenly get them to make Leprechaun 4. This never was a good idea in any possible way. Leprechaun clearly belongs on Earth due to his mystic nature. He is a creature of Ireland that will kill anyone trying to steal his gold. How do you put that in a space movie & actually get it to work is beyond me?

Warwick Davis I'm sure wasn't happy with this movie. It seems like they really down play his character. Before this movie, the leprechaun was very entertaining to watch. Even Leprechaun in the Hood is more entertaining despite being a dumb idea for a movie. I would watch Leprechaun: Back 2 Tha Hood over this any day of the week.

The mutated spider creature looks horrible in every sense of the word. I would describe it in full detail but this is just one of those things you have to see for yourselves. The regular look for him is already laughable. He looks like a one armed Dr. Evil mixed with the R2-D2. It was confirmed only his heart being the real surviving part of his.

This movie is so bad you should avoid it. I really wish I could say it was it's so bad it's so good but I can't. Nothing works for this movie that really makes you question how did this get release. I am aware there are much fewer things they need to be checked for direct to video movies. Which is why majority of them such so bad.

I am still surprised this movie didn't kill the franchise & it was bad enough. Leprechaun 4: In Space really doesn't do favors for anyone. This is an insult to those who love the movies like I do. This doesn't even feel like a space movie. Thank god there does exist one worse than this and it is a stand alone movie. For the love of god don't torture yourself to sleep with this abomination.

Bad Horror Movie Sequel Wednesdays #7 Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday

I had a lot going on in the last few days. As of 6 pm this Thursday finally getting the chance to write my new entry for this series.

Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, I think it is time to do a movie that's known for being widely mixed by people. A movie to me that stands as an insult to a classic horror movie series. I am talking about Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. I could argue parts of the previous movie are still some of my least favorites. I could say the same about Jason X but both of those actually fit in the time line. I can't say the same for this movie.

The previous movie was the last original Friday the 13th done by Paramount Pictures the only movie company behind this franchise. New Line Cinema the same company behind A Nightmare on Elm Street series bought the franchise. Sadly this wasn't a good start for things to come. I highly agree Freddy vs. Jason was easily their best movie among their Friday the 13th movies.

This is notorious for being the second attempt to end the series but didn't stop from making more. A lot of people love this particular look of Jason. Honestly I never really cared for it & yes I tried. The movie opens up to a surprise by the government. The level of punishment Jason receives here rivals the next two movies I'm not kidding.

Almost everyone thought Jason was down for the count. It turns out he somehow & never explained was still alive. A good amount of this movie involves Jason switching bodies. I have a lot of problems with this. Freddy did it with an unborn child inside of Alice. This led to him stealing her dead mother's body. No one of the previous movies ever shown Jason capable of doing that.

My next problem with it is Jason has souls from his victims. Once again ripping off Freddy who revealed that about himself in the third movie. There's no question Jason has superior stats to a regular person. At the same time I felt the entire movie misused the actual killer. It is very similar to I'll Always Remember What You Did Last Summer. Both of them horribly ripped off another classic horror movie.

Jason Goes to Hell also explains only a Voorhees can kill him. Indirectly referencing Halloween series since Michael is trying to kill his own family. You know it's bad when you rip off two famous horror movie franchises & not in a good way. Most of his kills aren't anything to write home about. There is a bounty hunter that never once explained how he knew how to kill or resurrect Jason.

This is a very different tone Friday the 13th movie. Usually you see Camp Crystal Lake with horny teenagers. You don't see neither of those really guys? Jason kept switching bodies until his dead sister's body. Possibly one of the sickest scenes in any horror movie that we don't actually fully see. This movie has some serious issues that makes it difficult for me to like.

Speaking of which my biggest problem is no where in any canon does it specify state Jason had siblings. In fact according to most of the movies, Jason was an only child. Are we walking into a plot hole or maybe the Twilight Zone. Also it must be his family to kill is sorta pointless. Let me explain from Part VI to up, Jason is officially undead. Prior to that, Tommy killed Jason for good when people thought he drown in the lake many years ago.

At the end of both Part VI & VII, Jason got forced back into the water. It took something unexpected both times to come back. It never once explained how Jason came back from Part VIII. I know a lot of horror movie series doesn't exactly how to follow the story. I felt major plot holes within the plot of this movie was unnecessary.

My point is Jason wasn't dead but he got forced to sleep in the water. Why of all a sudden it must be a family member to kill him? Was his family secretly related to Jesus? I know this is getting more ridiculous. Jason Goes to Hell doesn't do much to have things. I can't name a single part I actually like about this movie.

Oh yes when Jason gets stabbed by the dagger by a relative. Giant rock hands are pulling Jason into Hell. Once again this is ripping off Freddy at the end of his fourth movie. Although both scenes are very different from each other. Both scenes does involve their victims fighting back to end them for good.

What's mess up about all of this? When Jason got inside his dead sister's body. He came back looking just like he did prior to the grenade early in this movie. Is Jason somehow related to Leprechaun god I hope not lol. I think by now you can understand how I feel about this movie. It really doesn't feel like any previous Friday the 13th movies. How about I take it a step further the show felt slightly more like them in it's own weird way than this garbage.

Honestly unless you really like Jason, then go ahead & watch this. But to everyone else I recommend avoiding this movie altogether. This abomination is an insult to many great horror movie franchises. The closest positive thing I could say is Freddy's cameo. Yes it was brief & quickly gave us a strong message. This particular scene ends up being the only part I would rewatch for. Of course my second favorite part is the ending lol.

What If Horror Movie Monster Battle #20 (Main Event) Gremlins vs. Critters

Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, originally I had to change who should take on Critters. Which ended up being one of my most popular matches in history of this series. Now I am going to surprise everyone by finally giving you the original fight I wanted to do. You heard me correctly Gremlins vs. Critters. I am aware a lot of people talk about this one. I felt I deserve a say in this particular debate.

Before I start giving you a quick run down of these creatures. I should mention the connection between these two. The same people thought of both Gremlins & Critters. They originally thought of Critters first but Gremlins got green lighted. They had to move Critters back a little bit. Make no mistake these two creatures are very similar in a lot of ways. This is one of the biggest scale horror movie matches anyone can do.

Gremlins

Originally different fur covered creatures with strict guide lines. Not following eating after midnight causes them to mutate into gremlins. These are some vicious creatures that came close of wiping out a town in one night. Easily one of the biggest in numbers among many horror movie monsters. Gremlins will find you no matter what.

Critters

Critters are aliens on the run from galactic bounty hunters. They go to a planet at random to devour most living creatures. These little monsters are responsible for a huge body count in the first two movies alone. You will be amaze at what Critters can truly do. Easily one of the most dangerous aliens in any horror movie.

Gremlins
Pros
+By default they're bigger
+Can multiply by touching water
+Superior numbers
+More willing to fight & kill
+Will use anything as a weapon

Cons
-Stupider
-Slower
-Critters can take advantage of them multiplying to kill them all
-Will struggle against bigger Critters

Critters
Pros
+Faster
+Smarter
+Has better body part weaponry
+Devouring things increasing everything about them
+Rolling together in a big ball limits what Gremlins can do

Cons
-More arrogant
-Not able to increase their numbers as fast as Gremlins

I do want to point out they removed a particular trait of Critters from later movies. Where the more they eat, the bigger they become. In this version of the fight I am allowing that ability to be used. I won't be including all the mutated gremlins in this fight to keep things fair. For example electricity gremlin or smart gremlin can quickly turn the tables on Critters. Also I should say don't take any of these creatures lightly. You never know if one or many are hiding in your house.

This is a rather interesting battle we got here. Both of these creatures are wild that doesn't respect any kind of authority. Despite all the similarities, there are a few major differences that does help deciding which one would win. Gremlins can quickly increase their numbers by touching water. The rate of this is much faster than Critter's eggs hatching a longer period of time. At the same time, Critters can easily fly a space ship. It doesn't take a rocket science to figure out the best way to kill the gremlins is during them multiplying. This would be very obvious to Critters to do. The more Critters eat, the bigger them become. Gremlins aren't bright doing some stupid stuff. They wouldn't realize by multiplying, they actually adding to Critter's fuel. In both Gremlins movies, humans has killed several gremlins. It would be no brainer the bigger Critters could do the same. Critters also has sharper teeth in comparison. They also have spikes that will paralyze anyone hit by them. Last I checked Gremlins doesn't have a counter for that. Gremlins also has no real defense against the giant ball of Critters. Either way you look at this, Critters are much worse to go up against.

Now do all of us a favor and destroy the bloody things!!!

What If Horror Movie Monster Battle #19 Michael Myers vs. Maniac Cop

Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, I really wanted to do this next fight since almost the beginning. Michael Myers vs. Maniac Cop is truly a fight that a lot of people would love to watch. Two of the toughest & scaring horror movie monsters ever. Yes I know a lot of people wanted Michael to take on Jason. But that has some major issues that does take away from the fun. Maniac Cop would even things out better in the long run.

To clarify I am only using the original Halloween series Michael. Although there is suppose to be a remake of Maniac Cop being made. But let's be honest those versions wouldn't give us this good of a fight.

Michael Myers

Michael Myers killed one of his sister early on his life. In his early twenties, he escaped from an mental hospital to stalk his own family. This guy has quite a reputation among many horror movie monsters. Michael has one of the biggest body counts among slasher villains. Even in his worse movies, Michael still impressing people in what he can do.

Matt Cordell aka Maniac Cop

One of the finest cops of his time, Officer Matt Cordell. Often nick named Maniac Cop due to how he deals with criminals. He got set up by the mayor of his city that led to his death in prison. In Maniac Cop 3, it does explains how Cordell kept coming back from the dead. He had help messing with forces of Hell. He wanted revenge, the people responsible to confess the truth and be the best cop.

Michael Myers
Pros
+Very silent
+More unpredictable
+Willing to use anything as a weapon
+Has more experience in killing people

Cons
-Weaker
-Not as durable to several things as Maniac Cop
-Slower

Maniac Cop
Pros
+Faster
+More durable
+More experienced overall
+Has superior default weapons

Cons
-Has difficulty with speech
-More predictable
-Relies on his arsenal

Oh man I bet you didn't expect this fight would be this close. Michael has more directly experience in killing people. As stated before he has one of the highest body counts in any slasher movie series. Maniac Cop does has some great advantages over Michael. Due to being undead, Cordell does have a higher durable body. Therefore he can handle pain to a greater degree than Michael. I should mention Michael is still technically alive. Maniac Cop has some tough to counter weapons at his disposal. Michael has a long history of being unpredictable. One occasion his surviving sister told a man dress up like Michael to cut off his head. Not realizing it wasn't her brother she killed. Also Michael will use anything he can find as a weapon. In the past, when people did that. He almost got killed meaning Michael could find a way to win this fight. Cordell does rely a lot on his arsenal. Michael is an expert at disarming people. Cordell does trump Michael in strength but not by much. Now I think about it, there's more ways this could play out including a crazy car chase. In the end it really does come down to whose more likely to have the upper hand. I believe Michael can easily take away the win. He barely makes any sounds which Cordell won't be use to dealing with someone like that.

What If Horror Movie Monster Battle #18 Death (Final Destination) vs. Pinhead (Hellraiser) Kill Face Off

Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, it's time to spice things up. I am going to change the rules for this face off. I do plan on having Death from Final Destination series taking on Pinhead from Hellraiser series. But a fight between them wouldn't be interesting & more likely to be boring. So I decided let's make it a Kill Face Off. In this face off instead of having these two battling each other like I usually do. How about I compare some of their finest kills to determinate whose more terrifying. Lucky I seen all of their movies to know which kills I want to compare.

Round 1: Tragedies vs. Being ripped apart

In most Hellraiser movies, Pinhead kills people by hooked their bodies from all possible angles. Then he suddenly pulls all of them ripping his victims to pieces. In comparison, a horrible tragedy with a lot of people dying occurs. Always one person within it foreseen what's about to happen & alters some people's deaths. At the end of some Final Destination movies. The survivors meet up in a location to only be killed in such horrible ways. The real question is which of these particular painful to watch kills being more terrifying. Honestly seeing again many times Pinhead killing people the same exact way is difficult to watch. In vice versa, when end of the movie tragedies happens. It plays out very quickly leaving no body to survive. Therefore I have to go with being ripped apart for Pinhead.

Winner: Pinhead 1-0

Round 2: Two girls burnt to death vs. Twin security guards kill
This is more about surprise multiple kills from Death that aren't tragedies. Kills like two girls in Final Destination 3 being burnt to death. There also exists an alternate version of this kill but both of them still dies. In Hellraiser: Bloodlines, Pinhead deserves one of my favorite kills in the series. Two twin brothers that so happens to be security guards of the same building. They do end up meeting Pinhead to get such a brutal death. It is so disturbing that I really don't want to get ban from explaining it even a little bit. I think you all can agree this round goes to Pinhead.

Winner: Pinhead 2-0

Round 3: Blown barb wire kill vs. Beheading kill
Both of these kills caught me off guard the first time. Blown barb wire kill quickly followed another kill. A explosion occurs that sends a barb wire fence towards a guy cutting him into pieces. In comparison, Pinhead cuts an descendant of the man that created the box by sending one of his chains. Which went right through his neck then opened a blade to quickly go in reverse. Cutting his head clean off that fell down a floor. This is one of my favorite Pinhead kills of the series. So which kill do I think was more terrifying out of these two? I have to say blown barb wire kill was more unexpected & painful to watch.

Winner: Death 2-1

Round 4: Escalator kill vs. Pillar kill

The word "helping" is key for these two following kills. On one hand, a lady is getting forced down into the mechanism. At the same time, one of her friends really tries saving her. But ends up not doing enough leading her to a brutal death. On the other hand we have a woman that just had sex angry at the guy. Out of no where, Pinhead from within the pillar of souls chains her. He removes his entire skin in one quick pull. Then he pulling her towards him absorbing her in such a horrifying way. Indirectly the guy helped killed the lady by pissing her off. Let's be honest both of these kills are very difficult to watch. I won't call you a cry baby from not watching these movies. I got to say out of these two kills I must give to escalator kill because it was much worse. Someone tried to save her but still ends up falling into those gears in such a brutal end to life. In that regard I must give this round to Death.

Winner: Death 2-2

Round 5: Massage kill vs. Club massacre

Before I start describing these kills. I did allow final kills of some Final Destination movies. It should be fair I allow the famous club massacre scene from Hellraiser 3. Now we got some brutal deaths to talk about. A man goes in for a Chinese style massage. But all kind of things goes wrong around him. Probably one of the most painful long kills in any Final Destination movie to watch. In vice versa, Pinhead goes inside a club to kill everyone. He traps everyone inside during the massacre. Sadly we don't get to see how everyone dies. The kills we do see are some of the most brutal Pinhead has ever done. For example a lady's water in her cup transforms into a big icicle to impale her face. Another kill involves five discs cutting into the DJ's head. Man Pinhead isn't holding back in this scene. Two of the most painful kill scenes to watch in my opinion. But which one will give victory to one of these legendary horror movie monsters? I have to say Death is playing a strong hand but Pinhead strikes back with a royal flush.

Winner: Pinhead 3-2

I could be doing this for hours but I really wanted to cover some of their finest brutal kills. When it comes down to the killing. Pinhead has an interesting way about it. Yes Death can do some ridiculous stuff. Some of which made me extremely cautious of several things. I believe Pinhead does have some difficult to watch kills that even Final Destination fans have to agree.

What If Horror Movie Monster Battle #17 Nemesis vs. Pyramid Head

Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, a lot of gamers knows many great gaming rivalries. One of the closest among them that hits home for me is Capcom's Resident Evil vs. Konami's Silent Hill. Two popular opposite survival horror franchises that greatly impacted gaming in general. Obviously both franchises got movies based on those movies. I am very aware a lot of people did their own take of this following fight. I still wanted to do it for my own reasons. I am here to have Nemesis taking on Pyramid Head.

I will be doing something a little different for this fight. Considering these monsters originally appeared in their respective video game series. I thought it would help even things out by including stuff from them for this particular fight.

Nemesis

Nemesis is an unique tyrant creature that has two different brains. One of them Umbrella has directly control over what Nemesis does. The another brain is the one Nemesis uses to achieve his goals. This creature is programmed to eliminate any former S.T.A.R.S. members. Nemesis won't stop no matter what to achieve his mission.

Pyramid Head

Pyramid Head is an interesting history within the town of Silent Hill. Originally they were executioners to punish sinners. Now they are powerful super natural beings. Usually appearing for mysterious reasons. Easily the most dangerous creature you could run into. Pyramid Head is possibly the most powerful being that isn't technically a god like creature.

Nemesis
Pros
+Tougher
+Faster
+Smarter
+Has more weapons
+His coat can tank some serious force

Cons
-None of his weapons can harm Pyramid Head
-If no tyrants are near by after being cut in half ends any chances of fighting

Pyramid Head
Pros
+Stronger
+Greatly limited to what can kill him
+Helmet is very durable
+More unpredictable
+Has defeated a superior being

Cons
-Wielding the great knife reduced Pyramid Head's movements
-His spear won't be effective against Nemesis

On paper this sounds like the perfect Resident Evil/Silent Hill fight. In reality this is a surprise stomp in favor of Pyramid Head. Yes Nemesis does have more weapons but none of them can actually harm him. Nemesis won't be able to fully understand exactly what he's up against. Pyramid Head is not a personal demon. He is more like an enforcer of Hell similar to Hellraiser's cenobites. Pyramid Head came from another plain of existence. Only being killed by a powerful being from the same plain of existence or committing suicide can kill him. Nemesis is very strong among many Resident Evil monsters. Hell he does have tentacles, a rocket launcher and Gatling gun. In comparison to Pyramid Head's Great Knife that weighs more than a car. Pyramid Head is actually physically stronger than Nemesis. Which also means if Nemesis doesn't avoid getting cut by the great knife. He can be cut right in half with ease on the spot. To sum it up, no matter what Nemesis does. Pyramid Head is simply too much for him to handle on his own. Even if I were to allow a couple Resident Evil monsters. The results would remain the same sorry Capcom fans but Pyramid Head is a true monster to worry about.

I also wanted to point out I'm way more into Resident Evil series. I loss interest in Silent Hill a couple of years ago. I do respect parts of Silent Hill for what it is. At the same time, in it's current state can't match Resident Evil.

What If Horror Movie Monster Battle #16 Stitches vs. Cloyne (Clown)

Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, I figured to do another killer clown fight. This is going to be an interesting fight to say the least. Stitches from the movie Stitches takes on Cloyne from the movie Clown. I'm sure by now a lot of you are saying what!!! Yeah I really wanted to do this as one of my last fights for this series. An demon clown takes on a zombie clown now that haven't been considered before. Am I right kids hahahahahaha. Oh yes we all float down here.

Stitches

Stitches was a clown that attempted a kid's birthday party. He wasn't very good at his job. It didn't help these kids all being nasty to him leading to a surprise death. Six years later, Stitches came back from the grave to get revenge of those kids. He made sure each one dies related to what they did to him six years prior.

Cloyne

Cloyne is an old legend about a demonic clown creature that devours children. A man named Kent McCoy was told a clown isn't coming to his son's birthday party. He decides to put on what appeared to be a clown costume. In reality these was actual the skin of a demonic being. The longer he stays in it & depending on how many children he devoured. The more of the man trapped inside becomes loss.

Stitches
Pros
+Smarter
+More powers
+More unpredictable
+Has weapons
+More durable

Cons
-Can be easily distracted
-Anything that happens to his egg, can kill him

Cloyne
Pros
+Faster
+Acting on instinct
+More willing to kill

Cons
-Easier to kill
-Quickly loses control

I am going to do a first for my blog series. I knew if I just randomly thrown these two into a fight. A lot of questions would be thrown. The scenario is a few years prior the same kids that played an hand in killing Stitches. At one point were also going to be attacked by Cloyne. It is unknown how or what happened to that creature. This was before the crazy guy put that skin on. Six years later, Stitches raises from the grave to stalk those kids. Around this time Kent was losing control over his own actions. This creature found a way to the party. It seemed a familiar smell of those kids it once smelled. This caused Cloyne to go into berserk mode. A lot of people got killed in the middle of this. Shortly a little while, Stitches confronts Cloyne. Of course you know by now Hell is about to break loose.

I am going to be very direct to say this was one of the closest fights I have ever done. Both of them have a strange connection to a kid's birthday. Some of the most violent kills you will ever see in any killer clown movies was done by these two. Cloyne is more like a giant angry dog than anything else. Stitches may not be the sharpest tool in the drawer. He does have more powers that does help him in this fight. Stitches also bringing clown like arsenal that could hurt Cloyne. Both of them are surprisingly durable for killer clowns easily withstanding almost everything with ease. However how you have to kill them are very different. For Cloyne you must completely cut off his head. For Stitches you have to destroy his egg that's hidden in a grave yard. This egg has a direct connection to his soul acting similar to a voodoo doll. Of course Cloyne has no way of knowing about that egg. In vice versa, Stitches can decapitate Cloyne very easily. In all honestly this was a great killer clown face off. In the end, Stitches simply had more going for him in this fight.

What If Horror Movie Monster Battle #15 Zombies vs. Demons

Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, there's so many movies with zombies & demons. In fact enough of them to fill up a large room. Everybody into horror movies has seen a fair share of these creatures. Obviously Deadliest Warrior did their take on Zombies vs. Vampires that was very good. I figured why not put zombies against demons to see which would come out on top.

Just to clarify I'm not including many famous movie examples of demons. I'm leaving the devil out since he could easily take the win. Also I don't have a lot of options who could face him.

Zombies

A virus outbreak occurs possibly affecting the entire world. The dead start to walk to devour those of the living. These zombies are acting purely on instinct & can't be reason with. Zombies has one of the highest body counts in horror movie history. They will continue to come after you regardless what's happening. Zombies are legendary among horror movie fans.

Demons

The polar opposite to Heaven's angels. Demons are beings from Hell that cause chaos anywhere they go. They can possess people turning the best of them into monsters. Demons has a long colorful history that still isn't fully explored to this day. These creatures only bow to Satan himself. Demons are also legendary among horror movies for some of the absolute scariest movies ever made.

Zombies
Pros
+Tougher
+Superior numbers
+Only one way to kill

Cons
-Weaker
-Slower
-Lack intelligence
-One week before their bodies breaks down
-Virus can't do much towards demons
-Predictable
-Wielding weapons doesn't really work for zombies

Demons
Pros
+Smarter
+Stronger
+Faster
+More powers
+More experienced
+Has ways around the zombie virus
+More unpredictable

Cons
-More weaknesses
-Too arrogant for their own good
-Loves to talk
-Not as many demons are willing to work together

Two of the most reoccurring horror movie monsters in history of cinema in a fight to the death. Zombies doesn't have much going for them in this fight. It is debatable which is actually tougher depending on things. Both of them have superior stats to a couple of humans. But zombies doesn't feel pain no matter what you do. Demons can still feel pain with holy weapons being the most effective. In that slight edge zombies are technically tougher. Demons trumps in most advantages you can possibly give any horror movie monsters. Of course the big question would the zombie virus affect demons? Not exactly since they are already dead that's possessing the bodies of the living. If the virus were to affect those bodies, they simply leave the body. Sometimes demons has spells or artifacts that can counter it's effects. I can't stress this enough there will be an army of zombies greatly out numbering the demons. But a few skilled demons can truly make the differences. Zombies lack most of their intelligence that demons can easily take advantage of. Therefore if holy weapons were within reach. Chances are the zombies would walk right pass them without picking them up. Demons has so much to bring to the table that it becomes incredibly clear. Demons are much worse to go up against than zombies.

Bad Horror Movie Sequel Wednesdays #6 Troll 2

Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, I decided to do Troll 2 for many reasons. One of the absolute worst horror movie sequels ever released. Although it has virtually nothing to do with Troll at all. This movie is widely known for being very bad in every possible area. A movie so bad a lot of people often gathered to watch it with their friends & families. I did mention there are people looking for bad movies. Troll 2 is one of the most watched among these groups. Let's be honest this movie is legendary in it sheer awfulness.


Troll 2 as stated before has absolutely nothing to do with the original Troll movie. Believe it or not there exists two different Troll 3 movies. I haven't seen those movies but even if I did the legacy to Troll 2 is too great to pass up. More like a garbage bag filled with hazardous stuff with some mess from several people. Now I apologize for being disgusting but that bag is miles better than this movie.

Troll 2 is about a family that recently moved to a town. You later discover this town's name is goblin spelled backwards. Oh okay Dracula did it first now goblins are doing it. What the hell is next guys? The goblins wants to eat humans in such a horrible fashion. I seen better bad zombie movies that made eating people more entertaining to watch.

Troll 2 has some of the worst acting of it's time. The goblins look worse than a home made costume done poorly. Every kill scene is strangely rememberable for the wrong reasons. Who doesn't remember "Oh my god!!!" scene? Troll 2 also has some of the worst usage of special effects in history of cinema. Everything about this movie is a suffering to the mind waiting to happen.

There really isn't anything good with this movie. Maybe if someone does a charity that involves watching it might bring some good. All I see if that happens is so many people are more likely to walk away knowing it is not worth the trouble. I for one do have a thing for charities. I would rather play Desert Bus for a charity than to watch this movie again I'm dead serious.

The entire movie is horribly done from start to finish. I honestly can't name a single scene worth rewatching. This movie is notorious for so many reasons. It is so bad that not even the cover hides from it's legacy suckage. Troll 2 is the very definition of not actually being a movie sequel. It clearly was meant to be a stand alone movie but the director quickly tagged it with Troll 2.

In an attempt to help get it out there faster. Instead Troll 2 became a movie so bad pretty much everybody agrees it's horrible. I doubt I could find a single person that actually likes this movie. I should mention the famous scene with a guy gets transformed into popcorn? Out of the possible creative ways to kill people, you chose to turn this guy into popcorn. It makes just as much sense as having a gingerbread man going around killing people.

Actually no I take that back I don't know which sounds stupider to me. This movie for all the wrong reasons deserves all the hate it gets. Troll 2 is nothing special among bad horror movie sequels. There really no real reason any sane person should sit through this horrible abomination of a movie. I highly recommend avoiding or destroying any copies of it you find. The world really doesn't need such a bad movie around anymore.

Jack Red reviews Demon Bundle (Bundle Stars)

A lot of stuff came up with most of this done. More recently in 2017, I came across this unfinished. I felt I should complete it for those that may own all or some of these games. Demon Bundle is still one of the best bundles I ever gotten.

Special Thanks Roll Down
Running with Scissors (Postal 2)
Awfully Nice Studios (The Bug Butcher)
Ape Law (Albino Lullaby)
Cockroach Inc. (The Dream Machine)
Nathan Meunier (This Book Is A Dungeon)
IMGN.PRO (Kholat)
Scorpius Games (I Shall Remain)
Shiver Games (Lucius Demake & Lucius II)
Jesse Makkonen (Silence of the Sleep & Distraint)
Zoink Games (Zombie Vikings)
Funcom (The Park)

Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, a few weeks before Halloween. I bought two game bundles from Bundle Stars. Demon Bundle is easily one of the best bundles I ever bought. This is the closest to actually being an successor to their own Horror Heroes Bundle. Yes just like that bundle, all of these are indie games. This bundle is perfect for Halloween covering more ground than any horror or Halloween inspired bundles. I am honestly very impressed with the selection of games in this bundle.

1. Postal 2

Along with The Dream Machine are the only games to have dlcs included in the bundle. You are getting Postal 2 Complete with Paradise Lost that's exclusive to Steam for great prices. In this game you play as the Postal Dude, going around town doing some really not pleasant & horrible unspeakable things. Let's get a few things straight before I continue with the review. Officially this is more of an sandbox FPS than an horror game. But you do face zombies with possibilities so horrifying I'm amazed this game got released. Honestly you are very likely to get offended by this game than being actually scared. If you played games like Conker's Bad Fur Day or Grand Theft Auto series. You get a lot of freedom to do what you want yet it's really offensive to the point of upsetting all kind of people. This might be an tough pill to swallow but I like stuff like this. When I think of freedom of speech this will be one of my examples of it. Postal 2 has a few expansions that further built onto that madness. What's crazier is this stands as one of the select few games I own on Steam that has the workshop. This allows people to upload mods including making the game completely sandbox like Garry's Mod. All that extra content easily makes Postal 2 one of the best Demon Bundle has to offer.

2. This Book Is A Dungeon

An text adventure with horror elements isn't common in today's world. Back then there were an handful of them on several platforms. This game pays tribute to those game, You have to pay attention to everything to get far. You won't have much control over your character which that's expected in those games. But when you face enemies it is up to luck. This means you could be doing fine until one battle & you could easily lose. Very palm appearance with some detail images. This game won't hold your hand from the moment you start playing. You have to consider so much in every location. Honestly it isn't bad for that style games but it just isn't my thing.

3. The Bug Butcher

I am really amazed how great this game is. You are firing rapidly at all kind of insects. You can play two modes with one having two versions. I love the power ups you get as they make it more fun & entertaining to watch. There isn't bosses but there are creatures I could consider bosses. Very good art style with mind blowing audio that's really good. I really like my controller works perfectly for this game. This game is really addicting to play no matter how you view it. The Bug Butcher has large potential of being one of the greatest indie games of all time. I kid you not this game is an must have in most gamer's collections.

4. The Dream Machine (Episodes 1-3)

This bundle gives you half the entire game. But I got to be honest I didn't think I like this as close as much as I do now. Yes this is an strange point & click game but an very interesting one indeed. You won't have to worry about taking too long or losing. Some puzzles especially those in Episode 3 are tough. Very easy controls with interesting animation style. Every character with some stuff you see is made out of clay. Everything else is made out of card boxes yet both are used so well that I'm impressed. What's crazy is they been working on all the episodes since 2010 with only Episode 6 isn't out. This is an great game with lighter dark humor from Blackbay Asylum. I do recommend this game for fans of the genre or what more indie games standing out.

5. Lucius Demake

An alternate version of Lucius 1 that started from pictures an fan made in 16-bit retro style. This concept really hit home with Shiver Games. They quickly started working on this game coming an year after Lucius 2. I am really impressed by how well everything is done. They took an recent game series to recreate in classic 80s style. All the audio especially music really works for this game. I love how easy & fun this game is making it achievement friendly. Lucius Demake has some of the most graphic scenes I ever seen in an horror game. This is heavily inspired by The Omen movies with an similar concept. An surprisingly dark game that constantly gets you more interested in what's going on. Only an handful of bosses but after a few tries you will figure them out. It is really fun to go around exploring the place. This game is amazing in everything it nails to perfection. Possibly one of the surprise hits in Demon Bundle.

6. The Park

This game has you play as an mom searching for her kid. You can explore the theme park to get on rides. Some creepy unexpected moments will get you by surprise. An interesting dark environment with some an very clear idea where to go. Very achievement friendly that it's possible to get most achievements in your first run. Some parts will throw you off like any typical horror game. There isn't puzzles which I know some don't like dealing with them. To me an great horror game should have an complex design even if that's only in it's puzzles. It makes you think about the reality & all the possibilities no matter how unlikely they are. This is an good game but there are better games in Demon Bundle. I will say for an spin off game it is one of the best I played.

7. I Shall Remain

An crazy zombie game that in an weird way reminds me of Dead Rising series. You play as someone already infected, you are trying to survive. All your zombies are different types of zombies you will be facing. Controls will take some time to get use to but that's when the fun begins. You can search areas for stuff like medical, ammo and weapons. Like some games in Dead Rising series, you can buy stuff from other survivors. Personally I felt this was done better in Dead Pixels. Especially the leveling can be tedious requiring a lot of patience. This was better done in Deadly 30 an better zombie game for your money. I actually like the artwork put into this game. Some areas are confusing due to being set up kinda like classic FPS game maps. A lot of detail got put into I Shall Remain. Survival is my favorite mode to play as you can keep going & stop at any time. This does come off more like an true tutorial than the actual one but it gets the job done.

8. Lucius II

This is an sandbox horror game where you have to kill people in such horrible ways. This plays similar to Lucius 1 with some improvements. Half the game takes place inside an hospital. Any horror game does well with that. More recently after sometimes it loads up my game after I die. Partly the game glitches with key items. Thankfully the maps do work but it takes an while to get use to them. There is an leveling system similar to many games I played recently. Sometimes you have to be creative to get things done especially low on that meter to do crazy stuff. The controls do work fine but a little sensitive when it comes to throwing things. Lucius II is an good game for what it is but there are better games in the Demon Bundle.

9. Kholat

This is similar to newer Fallout games. You get to explore to search for items, hunting enemies and fast travel between locations. But you are limited to what you have. Your goal is to survive under such tough conditions. Unknown enemies, heavy snow with no real direction where to go. This game has trouble running on my computer even after I toned it down as much as I could. It still lacks mostly in audio from time to time. This is an game of patience & having an guide could help you. Honestly this game is okay I don't see all the hype comes from. But it is far from an bad game & there are better games in the Demon Bundle.

10. Albino Lullaby: Episode 1

Only the first episode was included in the bundle. This is an weird stealth & horror chase game. You have to avoid these creatures by out running them, turning on blue lights or get them into hazards. It took an while to configure the game the way I wanted. Very interesting look to the game with good sound effects. Very good graphics for what it's suppose to be. Yes you can lose in this game from not getting far away from your enemies. It is likely you could get loss which I recommend reading or watching an guide. Albino Lullaby does get you thinking during the game. Sometimes have to take risks to survive. The controls do work but take time getting use to. I already played an better episodic horror game series called The Walking Dead. Now those I am going to save for an special occasion. You do get an ability to help you a little bit instead of avoiding the enemies. Some areas have more than meets the eye so pay close attention to your environments. Overall not bad I do enjoy what I played of it. We will see if I ended up getting the rest of the game in the near future.

11. Zombie Vikings

An hack & slash beat em up game with an store to buy helpful stuff like better weapons. You play as an handful of zombie vikings taking on all kind of enemies. Your goal is to stop the witch & Loki no matter what the cause. I am very happy I can play this with an controller. Yes it takes time getting use to but very quickly the controls do their job. Some levels involves keep moving to survive. I also like the map system allowing you to replay levels to help with upgrading. I really like this game's dark humor which I'm an huge fan of. For example around you face your first enemies, two of them are talking. Out of the clear blue one of them said go eat an turd and goes on about how delicious it is. Yeah that's disgusting although this is an horror themed game. You have to collect a lot of coins & brains during the game to get far. I also like I can skip cut scenes I already watched even dying from an boss fight. Zombie Vikings is an great game that I can't get enough of playing. I highly recommend it to those trying to find more games like it.

12. Distraint

A simple horror game that does require some back tracking. A lot of surprising moments to keep on your toes. You play as a man not happy with his job since he has to kick people out of their homes. You can tell how much of him is losing it. This does remind me of Silent Hill series just not as good as those. This is a very easy game to keep track of what to do. Of course I do recommend a guide but a few runs should be easy to memorize it. Although it takes some time getting use to the controls, they're simple enough to work just fine. Thankfully you can't lose in this game except if you give up. Which gives you no excuse to rage quit on it. Distraint was made by a man with some of his relatives. Despite how small the team that made this sure created a gem among horror games.

13. Silence of the Sleep

This is one of the absolute best Silent Hill clones I ever seen. It is a slow pace game with tricky puzzles & strict avoiding mechanics. You play as a man named Jacob trapped inside a hotel. Nothing in this game is what it appears to be. Silence of the Sleep is considered to be one of the scariest games in recent years. You have to pay attention to every major chance to survive. Easily one of the most out there experiences in any horror game you could ever possibly have.

Now it's time to rank all the games included in this bundle...
13. Kholat
12. I Shall Remain
11. This Book Is A Dungeon
10. Lucius II
9. Albino Lullaby: Episode 1 Missing two episodes
8. Zombie Vikings
7. The Park
6. The Dream Machine (Episodes 1-3) Half the entire game
5. The Bug Butcher
4. Silence of the Sleep
3. Distraint
2. Postal 2 (all expansions)
1. Lucius Demake

Top 10 Dark Comedy Movies

Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, today I cover a topic not many people take seriously. Let's be honest some horror movies has unexpected humor that keeps bringing you back. No matter how dark it gets which is why I'm making my list. All of these movies are more funny than scary horror movies that are mixed by people. I hope I don't go too far out there with what makes me laugh.

10. Gingerdead Man 2: Passion of the Crust

I do agree Gingerdead Man 2 was the best out of the trilogy. I do like some of the humor is directly attacking parts of making a movie. This movie quickly gets more ridiculous as it goes on. I know some of you are wondering why not Gingerdead Man 3? I felt most of it fall flat after the beginning. At least with Gingerdead Man 2, I could name some funny parts. This movie isn't meant to be taken seriously at all.

9. Stan Helsing

This is a parody of Van Helsing taking on parodies of horror movie killers. Yes I can't be more direct than that since the plot is all about it. Stan suddenly becomes the hero take these monsters down. Some of the humor does work with plenty of okay moments. I have seen better parody movies like Spaceballs. I will be honest to say this is better than most of Scary Movies series.

8. Lumberjack Man

My favorite parody rip off of Friday the 13th. Lumberjack Man is very ridiculous when you pick a lot of stuff together. He was a lumberjack man making pan cakes. Then a man comes into his home to share pan cakes. The moment he tasted his family's specialty syrup things got ugly. To sum it up this man killed the lumberjack man & stole it. Lumberjack Man goes around killing people to use their blood in his giant size pan cakes. Did I say X-Play's Adam Sessler is in this movie lol.

7. Eight Legged Freaks

Probably one of my favorite insect movies ever. Eight Legged Freaks is a parody to spider movies. Yes this would be the lightest in overall theme. You can't deny there is some sick humor in this movie. I felt this was one of the better parody movies of my era. Eight Legged Freaks does hold up well. If you love giant spiders & need to laugh then go watch this movie.

6. Bride of Chucky

Granted this is very close of being scary & funny. Some felt they went a little funnier than they should. Others felt it had the right level of humor including myself. We all do agree Seed of Chucky wasn't a good movie. Maybe next Wednesday I'll cover that who knows. Bride of Chucky does have some clever humor.

5. Shaun of the Dead & The Return of the Living Dead

For me this is a tie for a lot of reasons. I really couldn't decide which funny zombie movie was funnier. Hell let's put both of them in the same spot. Shaun of the Dead is more direct with it's humor. The Return of the Living Dead quickly gets crazier as the movie goes on. I think most of us can agree a lot of people still watch these movies. Both of them are great parody movies that more people really need to watch.

4. Bloodsucking Bastards

Let's take Shaun of the Dead but move inside an office building & replace zombies with vampires. You have Bloodsucking Bastards I recently seen this movie. I got to be honest this movie was much funnier than what I was expecting. A lot of great funny moments to keep bringing you back for more. I do recommend this for those trying to find something refreshing with vampires.

3. Funny Man

Special thanks to the youtube user You & Your Horror Movies. He did a video with a top 10 killer clown movies. I knew as so as I looked more into Funny Man that I would love it. Funny Man does remind me of several horror movie icons. This movie goes the extra mile of doing some terrible things to people. The Funny Man himself is very entertaining to watch.

2. Freddy's Dead The Final Nightmare

Granted this movie is hands down more funny than actually being scary. This had some of the best & worst jokes of the franchise. Who doesn't remember the power glove scene lol. Some of these scenes are pure comedy gold. Honestly I still enjoy watching this movie a lot. Freddy's Dead may not been the perfect conclusion to the series. At the same time it still held up because of Robert Englund.

1. Leprechaun

I knew as soon as I started this list what number 1 was going to be. Some may argue Leprechaun in the Hood is funnier. I do agree that movie was funny but the original Leprechaun had more laughing harder. Some of these scenes are flat out ridiculous. Such as him driving around a wheel chair in a hospital or chasing someone while on roller skates. Leprechaun may miss the mark in being scary. This movie is easily one of the funniest I have ever seen. Warwick Davis does a great job bringing you back for more. This movie sure gets a lot of unneeded hate. There exists worse Leprechaun movies that I refuse to talk about. Leprechaun is comedy gold that deserves more people to enjoy it's sheer level of craziness.

Bad Horror Movie Sequel Wednesdays #5 Hellraiser: Revelations

Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, very recently I did a bonus blog for this series. In it I covered four bad Hellraiser sequels that all share the same major problem. Today as promised I will be talking about possibly the most hated Hellraiser movie to date. Hellraiser: Revelations that I can honestly hammered way more than seven ways to Sunday. This movie is legendary for being so damn bad. Don't worry I'm doing this so no body has to suffer.


OMG where to begin in describing how terrible this movie actually is? By now it is common knowledge that Doug Bradley who played Pinhead in eight movies isn't in this movie. I got to be honest the main Pinhead as shown in the picture above looks more like a parody movie character. I can't stress this enough I actually seen better looking Pinheads in fan films. Believe it or not, this movie has two Pinheads what?

Yes it's true with a surprise return of Chatterer, one of the original cenobites. This movie was really made in a hurry with the lowest budget of the franchise. In fact so low if Bradley would've came back he would been paid for a price of a new fridge. What a well respected actor getting such a low amount is an insult to his legacy. The big reason behind the rush is they really didn't want to lose the rights while having a remake being made. Thank god Clive Barker is making that movie.

The movie is reharshing the first two movies. You have a bad person that escaped Hell that is trying to survive. In the end gets killed again by the cenobites. A good amount of this movie is shown through a video camera. Some of the worst acting you will ever seen in any horror movie. This is the only movie you see the creepy homeless man kill anybody. The ending itself is incredibly horribly done. Don't get me wrong I always was curious to see what would happen if the person they wanted to torture the way back to Hell gets killed. I felt this could've been a lot better than it actually is.

I also felt they really didn't know how to end the movie. To me it was very obvious that no body in the movie wanted to be in it. From start to finish this movie is surprisingly boring. I do give it credit that this was planned to be an Hellraiser sequel. Unlike the previous four movies that rushed Hellraiser elements in at the last minute because they're too lazy to do the right thing. However rushing out a sequel in a very short amount of time is just as serious of a problem in my eyes.

We are talking about Hellraiser, one of the scariest things you will ever see. Then comes Hellraiser: Revelations to completely take all the fun out of it. This movie could've been a lot better with more time. I seen better low budget horror movies including The Terminator that's sorta a mix between horror, sci fi & action. Even the first two Evil Dead movies were low budgets but man people can't get enough of them.

In my opinion it really doesn't matter how big or small your budget is. What actually matters is if you with your team are willing to go the distance to give us a great movie. This movie will leave a terrible taste in your mouth for the wrong reasons. Let's be more direct neither Pinheads in this movie can compare to Doug Bradley's.

I don't even think Clive Barker the guy who wrote the books gave them permission to make this. How can they get away by making a movie inspired by his work but has nothing to do with him is beyond me. All the kills in this movie is worse than what you would see in fan films now that's just sad. Not a single kill is worth revisiting this horrible abomination of a movie. Please avoid this movie at all costs. I am aware there's people that enjoy very bad horror movies. I doubt even they would enjoy this movie.

Top 10 Genesis Games I Really Don't Want in Future Sega Genesis Flashback editions

Hi everyone I'm Jack Red, there's so many Genesis games that should be ported. Of course AtGames ruined a good amount of that possibility from happening to many classic Sega games. I have my personal Top 10 Genesis Games I Really Don't Want in Future Sega Genesis Flashback editions list. WOW that's a mouthful but making it any shorter would easily cause confusion.

10. Scooby-Doo Mystery

I haven't played this game myself but going on what I know from YouTube. This is a great point & click game that deserves more credit than it usually gets. This seems like reliving the classic cartoons in two lengthy cases. There is no real way to lose, take breaks & make sure you have a guide on hand.

9. Captain America & The Avengers

Arguably the best port of the classic arcade game. Most people really enjoy the Genesis port over SNES one. I haven't played this one either but I am looking to find my own copy of it. Very simple you beat up the bad guys. There is some variety to help keep things fresh. Easily one of the absolute best arcade ports on the console.

8. The Adventures of Batman and Robin

I already talked a great deal about this game a few months ago. In most areas, this game does an amazing job. Yes the difficulty is very high that could turn a lot of people off. You can play as Batman or Robin or do two players as both characters respectively. You get amazing level designs that truly pushed the Genesis.

7. Jurassic Park: Rampage Edition

I only play the original as a kid but when I found out about this on an episode of AVGN. I was very surprised it was much better. A lot of people said great things about this game. Just like the original, you play as Dr. Grant or an raptor. Based on what I seen of the game it improves on most of the flaws of the previous game. Truly one of the best licensed games on the console.

6. Ghostbusters

I really wish I had this game as a kid. Ghostbusters is still one of the best games in the franchise. You play as one of three ghostbusters hunting ghosts to save the city. This game has two different shops with a couple of sub bosses. You have to pay attention to every level to do great at it. Who doesn't want to bust some ghosts?

5. Spider-Man & Venom: Maximum Carnage

A few months ago I really covered a good amount of this game in two blogs. Spider-Man & Venom: Maximum Carnage is an excellent beat em up. You do have to start the game as Spider-Man to play a few levels. Honestly playing as Venom is where it's at for me. I also like you can alter how the level layouts by switching characters. A very good licensed game that more people need to play.

4. Castlevania: Bloodlines

I am currently on the hunt for this game. Castlevania: Bloodlines is a rather unique game in the series. Usually you play as just one character in the entire game. How about you get two characters with some clear differences? This game does a great job pushing your gaming skills. One of the very few Castlevania games released on an Sega console & being this good!!! Go get yourselves a copy of it.

3. X-Men 2: Clone Wars

I talked very little about this game since I don't own it. I do know a great deal about it. A different team from the previous X-Men game made this. WOW they did an amazing job in every possible category. You could get bored of this game but thankfully there exists a level skip code. X-Men 2 is possibly one of the absolute best Genesis sequels ever made.

2. Rocket Knight Adventures

I really enjoyed this game as a kid. Rocket Knight Adventures is still to this day, one of my favorite platformers. You play as Sparkster that can hang upside down & uses his jetpack. Some of the finest platformer levels on the console. Rocket Knight Adventures is one of the select few Genesis games that got Nintendo fans to turn their heads.

1. Good Disney Games

Oh okay before anyone gets angry at me for doing this. Let's be incredibly clear that I simply couldn't just put one good Disney game on this list. Especially those that people still often talk about to this day. Therefore my number 1 is every great Disney games on this console. Some of them are legendary among platformers. A handful of them had help from Disney themselves like Aladdin. These games not only held up amazingly well. They also are easy to pick up & play on the spot. Disney really went out of the park with such mind blowing games. Just having one of them on Sega Genesis Flashback is a criminal & insult to us fans.
