After starting in Washington D.C. nine years ago Horror Movie Night has expanded to include chapters in Austin, Dallas and Chicago. Horror’s Not Dead’s own Brian Kelley is the originator and programmer of this illustrious weekly Wednesday night tradition which features a “classic” horror film. Each week I will be reviewing/commenting on the past week’s selection so do your best to find the film, most of which have not made it past VHS, and follow along. Better yet, start your own chapter!
Fucking white people. Am I right?
This is a phrase you will become quite familiar with over the course of the 90 minutes of this week’s film. Furthering the grand tradition of the first two films in The Curse series, this has nothing to do with the other installments. Where part one concerned an alien disease from a meteorite (adapted from a Lovecraft story), and its sequel dealt with some crazy snakes and infected bites transforming the wounded serpents; part three is nothing like the other two. In fact, we even get the exotic locale of South Africa in this one and some crazy tribal shenanigans! Curse III: Blood Sacrifice (aka Panga) involves none of the same characters or experiences, and even gets rid of most of the fun the first two films had going for them. Lame.
