I realised this morning Iíve still not seen The Keep, and looking it up, thereís a 96 minute cut which is apparently dreadful, maybe a 2 hour cut and a 3.5 hour cut(??!). Whatís the availability on these longer cuts?

Fate Accomplice posted:

I'd never heard of this movie till your post and according to the google the 210 cut was never released.

I checked around :filez: sources and only could find the 96 minute.

Only the 96 minute version was actually released, but there were a was a wide variety of odd TV cuts of the movie too with several different scenes and different endings

The 96 minute version that's around now is pretty much what was released in theaters. I think the only difference is some of the effects shots during the climax.


There is ONE big difference though - some digital releases of the movie had a filler score instead of Tangerine Dream's music :wtc: Several years ago Netflix had it with the original soundtrack.


It sucks because this movie is so fuckin' awesome sounding and looking but like everyone involved in it getting made hates it so it's never going to really get restored or a definitive cut of it or anything like that.




GOAT level soundtrack imo

I saw some version on I think Amazon that looked like a badly compressed VHS rip.

Not being able to see what was going on half the time added to the eerie mystique of the flick.

It's a pretty fascinating movie that doesn't quite work and the "Clean Wehrmacht" aspect of it leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

Yeah I haven't been able to find any version besides the 96 either, which I watched a few months ago. Cool aesthetic, great soundtrack, but a real incoherent mess. When you get to the last 15 minutes, the editing is especially egregious, the music changes with each cut.

I wasn't interested in Spiral, but this description has got me curious.

My wife agreed with the description. The whole thing looks like Lethal Weapon 6 from Sunny. There are also a bunch of Mac/Charlie/Dennis decisions. Hitting old tropes and clichés but playing them super straight and as if you were smart for doing so, having a stupid hot babe whose character should be like 50 years old, and a flashback that indicates itself by having the character wear a backwards baseball cap, because that's what young people wear.

Has anyone seen Shadow in the Cloud? I'm in the mood for terrible poo poo right now (and the trailer looked ridiculous) and I'm wondering if it's worth a rental.

It was written by Max Landis (a rapist) so try not to pay any money to watch it. Hulu has it.

I was just watching the Cronenberg version The Fly and realized it's probably one of the movies
that defined my childhood. I know I watched it several times on TV growing up.

I think the big 3 of Saturday afternoons for me were definitely The Thing, The Fly, and Creepshow.

It's interesting to me that two out of three were also remakes.

The Fly and The Thing were staples for my childhood friends as well. instead of Creepshow we had Starship Troopers though for the good-times soft landing

That looks really good and I feel like Rebecca Hall lends herself to horror. I feel like it's going to end up being a really good year for horror.

SO EMBARRASSING



Just saw the horror anthology Scare Us, and it was... basically all right. There are five segments including the framing story. Two segments are quite weak, just okay effects in search of plots. Another two segments, though, are really creative. There's a slasher segment with some clever set pieces in an interesting location and a trippy horror segment with some cool visuals, sharp editing, and a great gory ending. The last segment is also good, basically a very low budget version of Hereditary. If you're into cheap indie horror, this is fine.

Phantasm II is streaming on Peacock, which is the first time it's been available to stream (outside of renting or buying a digital version on Amazon.) Which means that I apparently guessed right and Universal really were hoarding the streaming rights all this time so they could make it exclusive to their digital service.

I mean, it is a solid movie.

Again, the movie was completely rewritten by Liang and Moretz from Landis's original script. I would actually be curious what ideas that ended up in the final movie were his, if any.

It's not a good movie but it's commitment to bring a fun midnight movie is kind of commendable. How do you not love a movie that has the stones to do that hatch explosion scene?

We were really digging it until it flipped to what felt like a knock off marvel movie. Skip the baby in a box and keep it a straightforward tense creature feature.

Last night I was flying low with a Walrus-sized load on when I made the decision to check out Deadbeat at Dawn.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tF40Q7NCaIE

Have you ever felt like a movie was tailor made just for you? A personal tale that reflects your immense soul? We're talking about a well written, worldview affirming piece of art. A heat-seeking missile that flies faster than the speed of sound towards the rare true thing?

DaD is all of those things and more. Potent substances had no chance in tethering my raw enjoyment, my buring glee at what I was bearing witness to. For an hour and change all the poo poo and failure melted away from Walrus for a moment I was a pair of eyes, a brain and a pleasant series of flickering images. Bliss.

Deadbeat at Dawn is a triumph of enthusiastic, amateur filmmaking. It knows what it is, revels in it, slaps hard and leaves you wanting more.

Nihilistic and post-modern, it is a heady thrill-kill of a film and a new staple in the Walrus Library.

What I love about Deadbeat at Dawn is that itís set in a no-frills, ultra-gritty and grimy world where junkie street gangs brutalize each other in a very real urban hell-scape but they also use ninja stars, nunchucks, and everyone knows Kung Fu. Itís a great film.

Well Space Truckers was a weird as hell movie by Stuart Gordon, not sure what I was epecting. All I can say is that it cost 25 million dollars. What a bizarre film. Its probably Gordon's most costly film too.

I remember it being completely terrible apart from a fantastic performance by Charles Dance (but who would expect anything else from the man?)
