That is a crazy insane looking trailer. Can't wait to see it.

I got a real Invasion of the Body Snatchers vibe from it.

Releasing the trailer on Christmas day is a really next-level move, I'm that much extra pumped just via association.

I love that Peele just goes all-in on high-concept horror. Like that trailer looks insanely good, but the concept also looks like nothing else I've really seen (or at least looks to done in a way that similar concepts haven't riffed on). I love the intimacy of the concept alone. I'm hyped.

Santa brought me the Collectors Editions of The Fog and They Live, along with a pre-order for the CE of Prince of Darkness. These are the 4K remasters with the new documentaries and featurettes, spread over four discs each. That's me sorted for a while.

Anyone else find something nice, or at least suitably horrible, under the tree?

Why'd you see it twice if you thought it sucked? Haha

Although I can't really talk since I've done that before myself. I paid full price twice to see The Last Jedi and thought it sucked both times.

I disagree about Overlord, though. Sure, it's not great, but it's a fun enough little movie that's not like a lot of what you typically see in theaters. It's not going on my favorites of the year list, but I had a good time watching it.

When you promise your friends youíd see it with them but you ended up seeing it before them...

Us is giving me Invasion of the Body Snatchers vibes except a full on all out invasion. A couple scenes make it seem like this is not just those two families. The corpses on the beach and that scene where it looks like a bunch of people shambling behind the evil little girl.

Looking for horror book recommendations, Iíve been trying to read more lately. I read The Haunting Hill House and We Have Always Lived in the Castle this week and really liked them both. In the past the only stuff Iíve read thatís horror related has been Steven King and I gotta be honest, I donít really like his books. So stuff more like Shirley Jackson and less like Steven King. What are some 20th century classics of the genre? I know this came up in the last thread at some point.

Thereís a sorta interesting podcast with Adam Green and Joe Lynch where they talk about making films and being a filmmaker, but Adam Green talks way too much about himself and rarely lets the subject say much. Kinda sucks.

Was really interested in hearing what Alex Aja had to say about his career but most of it was Greenís antidotes.

I've only seen the first Hatchet, but it's actually pretty fun. Oddly, for an 80s slasher throwback, it might be the most 2006 movie ever.

If you want just a pile of good horror short stories I really canít recommend The Weird enough: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Weird

Itís also all 20th-21st century. Though, frankly no one is in Jacksonís league imo.

I like slasher and gore but Victor Crowly has two dudes get murdered super quick and then a woman has her fingers chopped off, thrown spread eagle in a dress on the ground, her arm and leg brutally sawed off and then her faces smashed into the mud and her head cut off.

Hatchet isnít nearly close to what it thinks it is, or really should be. The core idea of a ďreturn to basicsĒ slasher franchise is all well and good, but the end product is neither as effective or clever as it postures itself to be.

I was tweeting about this the other day, why is nobody able to come up with a new memorable slasher villain? The last one I can think of was Scream, 20 years ago.

Hatchet, the original, was basically just a movie to watch for the gore effects and cameos and that was it

Unless they ever topped the near seamless bisecting of someone, I don't see any reason to watch the sequels

Yeah he was a great villain in a really lovely movie. Impressive to come up with a genuinely creepy clown in the age of Pennywise imitators. Shame about the rest of the movie.
