Saw Mission Impossible: Fallout this weekend. Really enjoyed it. Worth the $20 for IMAX.

I'm with you. Watched Demon House on Prime over the weekend hoping for something interesting. I guess I've never caught that guy's show which probably would have saved me the 90 or so minutes. Like typical ghost hunting the movie came off as a bunch of fabricated nonsense.

Some recent garbage I've seen so you don't have to:
Dead House: some cool practical effects, but otherwise pretty atrocious. Underdeveloped premise, unlikeable characters, and lots of overacting.
You Can't Kill Stephen King: a few fun references, but an otherwise very low-grade slasher with some awful acting.
Writer's Retreat: cool premise similar to Chuck Palahniuk's Haunted, but it's plodding and pretty much unwatchable. The few glimmers of horror are marred by the painful lulls in-between.

John Carpenter's THE FOG is getting a re-release in theaters with a new 4K resolution. It will open for limited runs at the Metrograph in New York, Landmark’s Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles, and the Music Box Theatre in Chicago. Additional screenings will occur during Halloween week throughout the Alamo Drafthouse circuit and other specialty theaters. I have an Alamo Drafthouse about 45 minutes away from me so I'm definitely going to try and catch this on the big screen!

I'll be getting it too but Amazon needs to reduce their price. They've got it now for presale at $39.95, although I'm sure between now and the release date it should go down.

Kinda horror-comedy, but still good. Ghosted was a fun series to watch, and it's streaming on Hulu. Fans of Adam Scott and Craig Robinson should check it out; good watch full of horror references (both overt and subtle).

Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich was leaps and bounds better than the last 10 or so sequels, but still pretty terrible
