Bad CGI Friday’s: Ghostquake (2012)

Published July 4, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

Whether it has been in prisons, on zombie filled islands or while visiting Desperate Housewives, Danny Trejo has encountered a lot, cinematically. But, I don’t know if any of that could have possibly prepared him for the dangers of 2012’s Ghostquakee (AKA Haunted High), though!

gq1As a janitor fighting against a reanimated satanic warlock, Trejo faces down spooky computer generated phantasma-rings, bolts of hot-fake supernatural lightening and even, eventually, gets it on in a ghost-to-ghost battle!gq2

Featuring deaths by toilet, auditorium bleachers, French horn, library floor and wildly spinning tile, Ghostquake is actually a pleasant enough timewaster – even for those who never want to cross paths with a rambling school bus ever again!

Shark Bait Retro Village: Midnight’s Child (1992)

While, in reality, far too many women are still being sex shamed – I do believe if your nanny is a satan marrying, husband seducing bad-ass with a fake accent then maybe she deserves all the names that you can call her!

Sneaking on Marcy!

Sneaking on Marcy!

Such is the case when (former) soap opera diva Marcy Walker (playing Kate, a harried businesswoman) and the nubile Olivia D’Abo (as the pouty mouthed mistress of the devil) come face to face in 1992 television film Midnight’s Child. As D’Abo’s manipulative, murderous Anna lures Kate’s husband away from her while simultaneously making plans to turn her young daughter into the dark master’s newest conquest – Walker unleashes her verbal fury and is soon teaming with Anna’s distraught father in an attempt to bring the horn loving minx down.

Of course, since this was made for the Lifetime Network, the more lurid aspects of the plot are played down here to concentrate on Kate’s guilt (as a woman having it all) and Anna’s sharp eyed plotting. Action sequences are, also, infrequent. Although, the opening moments efficiently portray a murder and an explosion at Anna’s Swedish convent school, helping to establish the sinister motives at play. Lovers of dark soap opera antics and devilishly infused plot lines should find that things move quite quickly and enjoyably despite the severe lack of bloodshed, though.

If anything, Midnight’s Child may even help raise social awareness- reminding employers to check the scalp lines of their potential in home employees to get the 666 on whether things are bound to have a distinctly fiery end.

The End?

The End?
