I thought it sucked.

My favorite is still TCM The Beginning. The chainsaw-through-the-chest-while-on-the-table scene is incredible.

Well Ursus, he did his thang in that scene too!

Why on earth do I keep giving Ti West chances? I know people in here like him, but outside of The House of the Devil, and maybe MAYBE Innkeepers but even I'm not huge on that, he never really strikes me in his films. I finally watched the Sacrament last night and found it hard to stay truly engaged.

On a side note, anyone here seen The House on Pine Street? It was on kickstarter and has had nothing but great reviews that I've seen, I'm interested to see it. Deemed a "psychological horror"

I actually really like the TCM remake with Jessica Biel from like 03. I know a lot of people hated it though.

I'm a big Ti West fan. Never saw Cabin Fever 2, but everything else by him I usually enjoy. (Sacrament was OK, nothing special)

The House on Pine Street seems pretty cool, i'll have to keep a lookout for it.

I love that TCM as well!

And i thought Sacrament was great. Probably because it pissed me off. Them psycho religious flicks get to me i guess.

I never got the love for the Innkeepers. I don't mind slow burns and I am a huge ghost story fan but that movie failed to engage on any level IMO. HOTD is drymounting fantastic though. The roost is pretty meh and the sacrament wasn't terrible. CF2 was absolutely butchered before it was finally released IIRC. I don't Ti West is a huge fan of it. It is also the only movie hes done that doesn't look like a Ti West film.

Creep was very average if you ask me... With that said, someone earlier in this thread mentioned that it feels like Duplass's take down of found footage films and retrospectively it works better with that in mind.

Aussie flicks Wyrmwood and Plague are on Netflix. Wyrmwood is good, not great - 3/5. Plague is awful, just awful. 1/5. Worst thing was I saw it with a screening in a cinema that fits about 25 people and the director and actors were in attendance and it got so many unintentional laughs that I couldn't help but feel sorry for them.

Oh, and not really horror, but almost, These Final Hours is also on Netflix. Good little Aussie flick about the end of the world. 3.5/5
