Is a man not entitled to the haw of his maw?

I didn't like brightburn but it was half because the kid actor was just not emoting AT ALL, and half it was just kinda dumb. Kid can emote (he was young Scott Lang in endgame), but I guess was just told not to.

Admittedly I'm a big Superman fan, and I kinda really hate Snyder's ideas and dcu, but it just seemed like a lifetime movie network of "bad Superman".

The scene where he splattered the cop got a decent laugh out of me though.

So that explains why he did not answer. He had no mouth to answer with. There is nothing left of him but his ears.



I never really understood the love for Night of the Comet. The movie only has one joke ("Women be shoppin!") and the horror isn't strong enough to cover for the humor.

It was basically pitched to me as Dawn of the Dead plus Clueless and it didn't really scratch either itch. It's not miserable, but it's pretty mediocre.

Well, the setup is that the two girls are ditsy valley girls, but the payoff is that theyíre competent badasses who can independently survive on their own as well as with each other. The makeup isnít amazing, but thereís a couple of really effective moments where the ghouls are threatening (like in the cheerleaderís dream), or when they emotionally affect the protagonists (when the Hispanic lead goes home to find his family).

Plus the two girls are like, really hot.

Night of the Comet is basically a hang out movie with an amazing soundtrack. I loved it.

I was genuinely surprised at the emotional depth of the sistersís relationship in Night of the Comet. Like, I was expecting a fun schlockfest but got a couple of really good performances mixed in with the schlock.

Hmmm...


It's a shlockhouse film made by people who are too smart for shlock, but love it anyway. With main characters that are traditionally annoying as heck, but injects them with enough love and character and enthusiasm to make them enduring. And set in a traditionally horrific premise, and plows ahead with the conclusion that the apocalypse can be fun as hell.

It's not inherently revolutionary, but it's a quietly been influential while being just a really good time. Like gender and genre flipped Bill and Ted.

Lots of good stuff coming to Shudder this month. Wendigo is a good one that I haven’t thought about in a while. Night of the Comet and RotLD III are both super fun too. And I was just thinking about rewatching Dog Soldiers when werewolves came up the other day!

I can't believe Shudder bought Jessica Forever. Everything about it sucks rear end, even the main title fonts.

Gretel and Hansel is okay. It looks amazing, it sounds amazing, but the story is just okay. Which is fine, I guess, sometimes you just want something that looks really good and has a nice dream like quality. I still sort of wish it was built on something a little more though.

I still recommend seeing it though.

Agree with this. If nothing else, itís the most gorgeous-looking horror film Iíve seen in some time

Finally got around to Tammy and the T-Rex (or Tanny and the Teenage Tyrannosaur as the title card says) and, uh, WOW. I think Paul Walker's brain being transferred into an animatronic t-rex isn't even in the top five weirdest things about this movie. We loved it.

I saw Gretel and Hansel and it was honestly amazing. The cinematography was gorgeous, the acting and writing was superb and it was genuinely really creepy and had this hypnotic atmosphere. I'm kinda surprised people are lukewarm on it. The way the cinematography captured a kinda "strangeness" felt like what Midsommar was trying to do but failed.

So far only occasional complaint I've heard about it is that it's a bit slow in parts, but overall everyone's liking it. Sold like mad tonight.

You can't adapt half of Lovecraft's poo poo, nor would you wish to.

I didnít find it that slow, especially compared to Perkinsí first two films. There are some moments where it dwells on the visuals and atmosphere but not in a way that killed the pace imo.

Count me in for the ďit was goodĒ crowd. Beautiful cinematography and some fantastic and unique visual effects like the witch forming/stepping up out of the puddle.

Also, what was up with the zombie looking thing at the Huntsmanís house?

A lot of Lovecraftís descriptions are pretty vague so you can fill in the details in a lot of ways. Itís been a while since Iíve read the story but I think the animals were described as mutated somehow but I certainly donít remember any fused people.

The best Lovecraft adaptations (and I think Color Out of Space makes that list) work from the broad strokes. You need to be selective when adapting something as flowery and vague and racist as Lovecraft.

Yea okay that's what I thought, my memories of the book remember the color, the wildlife, the farm, and everything spreading slowly but surely, but not much else.

There's an argument for not showing the monster, but imagine John Carpenter's The Thing without the mass of dog alien weirdness writhing around in the kennel. Sometimes the monster is too cool to stay hidden
