Re: The Official Horror Movie Thread

Saw "Ma" this past weekend. Octavia Spencer gives a pretty great performance, but the rest of the movie was lacking. I'm hoping there's a slightly longer cut out there that adds a few scenes that help flesh out a few key moments and characters. Also saw the "Scary Stories" doc on VOD and was thoroug...

Re: The Official Horror Movie Thread

More Amazon Prime found footage. I see you: Can’t quite decide on this one. In some ways it’s standard found footage, but there are a couple twists in the third act that complicate what would otherwise be a pretty straightforward flick. Also, the last five minutes killed any good will the film had ...

Re: The Official Horror Movie Thread

More (mostly) found footage-style from Prime: In Memorium: micro budget decent-ness, good for those jones-ing for another Paranormal Activity movie. The plot’s a bit predictable, but the film is mostly watchable, despite some bad acting. A Brush With Evil : Decent setup that doesn’t quite pay off, b...

Re: The Official Horror Movie Thread

Been on a found footage kick lately. Now that the school year is over, I'm going to try to catch up on Amazon Prime horror. If you like the genre, I definitely recommend Butterfly Kisses. It combines some worn tropes with some nice twists, and I was thoroughly entertained. The play on Blair Witch (a...

Re: The Official Horror Movie Thread

Saw the Pet Sematary remake, and I'm a bit torn. On one hand, I didn't think it was stupendous overall, the third act felt very rushed, and I didn't like a couple choices. On the other hand, I appreciated that this version leaned a little harder on the Wendigo angle and the overall impact the burial...

This. Hopefully with a blue color way so it'll look especially nice hanging along side wolf guard, wet teeth, and elk guard.

Re: The Official Horror Movie Thread

Surprised there hasn't been more discussion of "Us" here. I loved some parts, thought s few concepts fell a bit shirt, and a couple elements were too openly telegraphed, but enjoyed it a lot, overall. Hoping to see it again in order to continue to unpack some of the themes and allusions. I also rema...

Re: The Official Horror Movie Thread

I've heard really good things about https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_borderlands but I haven't had a chance to check it out yet. It's supposed to be one of the better F.F. genre flicks from the past couple years. Also, you can't go wrong with Cannibal Holocaust. I was actually just reading abou...

Re: The Official Horror Movie Thread

Seeking recommendations: Taking Friday off and thinking of doing a Found Footage Friday marathon of four or five movies. Thinking of doing Lake Mungo, Hell House LLC, Behind the Mask, and The Bay or REC, but would love suggestions. Debating including a Paranormal Activity film or something old scho...

Yep. I kinda like these, but they would definitely never merit that much wall space.

Re: The Official Horror Movie Thread

Finally got around to watching Overlord. It was… OK. The shifts in tone from various plots seemed a bit jarring at times, and the overall story was neither as character-driven or as overtly bonkers as I would have preferred. Instead, it never felt like it fully delivered on any front. Ultimately, I'...

Re: The Official Horror Movie Thread

Assassination Nation was a bit on-the-nose at times, and not quite what I expected, but a good watch. Recommended if you don't mind heavy handed message with your witch-hunt allegories. Watched Urban Legend for the first time since it was originally released, and it was a ton of fun. I also forgot h...

Re: Changes at Expressobeans.com

Who the drymount pays upfront for work from a foreign developer? And who books this large a job without an ironclad, completely actionable contract? I like EB and find it incredibly useful, but way to make everyone who donated look like assholes. JFC.

Re: The Official Horror Movie Thread

Finally caught up on some stuff this week: Unfriended: Dark Web had a couple interesting moments, but was incredibly predictable from the start. I appreciated that they nixed the generic supernatural element from the original, but I found myself almost instantly rooting for the villain, as the major...

Re: The Official Horror Movie Thread

Finally saw Bird Box last night and was thoroughly underwhelmed as a whole. The premise is great, the monsters are very Lovecraftian, and there are moments in the beginning where I thought the movie shined, but I don't get the hype on this one. It's like praise for a horror movie from people who hav...
