Hello to all those faithfully reading and hopefully enjoying this effort to make even the worst horror movie more watcha... aw, screw that - I'm not that good. If a movie makes you cringe because yet another batch of unlikable teens that are pushing 30 are inching toward their deaths, having a party no one does anywhere ever, a paranormal movie is boring you to tears with unending pans of empty rooms, or thanks to CGI technology when people finally bite it, their blood squirts everywhere except on the victim, the ground, the people next to them... you're in good company and this is the right place for you.

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM PART ONE



Although I ended my brief relationship with the dubious 'service' called Screampix (Now Screambox, as if that made any difference) on YouTube, it said I could still watch crappy movies until the end of the month, so crappy movies I watched. Screampix makes that kind of hard - in fact it makes everything hard. It keeps touting itself as 'dedicated to building the ulitmate horror movie channel'. Yeah, the ultimate CRAPPY horror movie channel. If you see a GOOD movie on this channel chances are very good that 1. It will not play; or 2. You'll bring it up only to discover you will have to pay MORE money to see that particular one. Good one you vultures.

A guy calling himself 'Rayzilla' crows on: 'We already have over 100 movies and we're going to be adding new movies every week.' Uh  huh. That's probably because their main movie source, braindamagefilms.com probably can crank a bad movie or two out a week. 'You'll never see any commercials, advertisements or pop-ups'. That's true, but boy you'll be wishing you had - you gotta see SOMETHING interesting after all. 

Their movies are 'not for the faint of heart'. Yeah, they're all for those touched in the head. And I don't think they're gonna be successful in building a community unless it is of people who are so laid back they don't mind if their crappy movie quits, backs up 15 minutes to half an hour, or just plain won't play either 'in this country' or not at all. So no, this paid service does NOT have over a hundred movies - not that YOU can see anyway.

But if you think that spending $2.99 per month is okay for your frustration and movies that don't play JUST IN CASE there's a gem buried in there somewhere, be my guest. I'm sure that's what 'Rayzilla' is hoping for. Those desperate enough for cheap movies with blood, gore and breasts that don't mind if the movie is just plain unwatchable. Not me, thank you very much. There's several other sites that have just as many irritations (and as few watchable movies) that I can use for free. Thanks but no thanks.
