Underwater/Come to daddy/After midnight are the only things I’ve really enjoyed this year horror wise. Been catching up on older fudge. Come to daddy was a nice surprise because every time I was sure I knew where it was going, it swerved. Also caught we summon the darkness. Daddario is having a blast and the second half of the movie is fun. Just takes way too long to get to where it’s going.

I enjoyed Sea Fever. Solid acting, good pacing, and an interesting (if somewhat contrived) story. I think it's worth watching for sure.

Anyone see The Other Lamb or The Lodge yet? Curious as to what you thought of them.

Quarantine Theater viewing for week 7.

Biggest surprise: The Paranormal Activity series is better than I remembered.
Biggest disappointment: Antrum failed to deliver on its premise and mythology.

Spent a chunk of my week rewatching the "Paranormal Activity" franchise.
I really wish the series would have followed the trajectory of "The Marked Ones." Review and ranking here:

Watched– and then re-watched– that abominable Shudder docuseries on cursed films. This should have been awesome, but the whole thing seems slapped together and maddeningly lazy.

Celebrated the 40th anniversary of "The Shining" by watching more than a dozen Stephen King adaptations this week. Perfectly normal quarantine behavior.

Spent entirely too much time this week thinking about "Jaws" and COVID-19 response:
