When you think about its probably a miracle a movie studio didn't do something with "serial killer who does voodoo and becomes iconic killer doll" to wring more cash out.

You were so scary at night.


After easing off of horror movies a bit post-October I want to dive back in again.

I was thinking of doing a remakes theme, so what are the best or most underrated horror remakes? (Besides the obvious ones like The Fly, The Thing, Halloween II)

Evil Dead and The Crazies both fall into "underrated" for me, but probably not "best."

Oh yeah. Seconding Suspiria, Blob, and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. And Ring I guess.

For as many times as I've watched Night of the Living Dead I should really rewatch the remake. All I remember is the ending.

Seconding the Maniac remake. Really disturbed me the first time I saw it. Really impressed with Elijah Wood on that one, and how well the cinematography and direction made me feel implicit with the crimes I'm watching.

the remake is not in the same league as the original but it's solid and certainly worth a watch. More in the "underrated" category than "best"

Itís honestly one of my favorite horror films. I put it up there with Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer and Rosemaryís Baby in that way they make you just feel so bad.

Also the original is pretty mediocre and kinda weird(in an off-putting way, not a good way) so the remake didn't really have any baggage or fan expectations to deal with. Probably a prime example of the kind of movie that is perfect for a remake, because there was actually room for improvement.

Oh, dude, the Maniac remake is a must-watch, really, unless you are (justifiably) unable to watch violence against women. (No rape, but itís pretty rough.) I can understand someone not wanting to re-watch it, but it at least deserves one viewing.

I wanted to rewatch it after Come To Daddy. Maniac deserves to be in the top 3 Elijah Wood movies. (LotR trilogy counts as one.)

Unearthed Films "Too Extreme For Mainstream #2" review

Unearthed Films 2nd outing in their "Too Extreme For Mainstream" series is Deep Web XXX and it is a hot piece of garbage. The plot follows a fat dude as he watches a bunch of weird deep web videos. That's it. That's the story. The vignettes are just hardcore BDSM porn for the most part or weird sex rituals. None of it is horrific except for the lack of consent in a lot of them. I'm really dissapointed in this series tbh. It's less of a horror series and much more of a "how can we trick horror fans into watching buttholes". The worst part is when there is finally a horror-themed short, the FX are terrible. For a company that prides themselves on gore/splatter/SFX showcase films, this couldn't be more far from what fans what. Don't even waste your time.

On the remakes question, there's also the Dark Castle films from the 2000s (and '99 for House on Haunted Hill).

I dunno but I always assumed the mayhem movie was like a remade belko experiment.

they're similar enough to be worth comparing, but they're not the same movie and Mayhem is better

Belko is trying to be a serious horror movie, whereas Mayhem is basically a horror-tinged action movie where Glenn from the Walking Dead and Samara Weaving fight their way through an office building full of yuppie versions of the war-boys from Fury Road

and seriously that Faith No More needle drop is loving incredible

e: this is missing the earlier bit that makes it really work (it's a really well-executed brick joke and this is the payoff), but this video has the needle drop I'm referring to in it

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW2FiGxUg78

e2: also, I really need to see Ready or Not, this movie basically sealed for me that Samara Weaving is just straight up one of the best currently-working actresses

Gretel and Hansel doesn't suck. It bears no relation to the goofy Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters movie from 2013. This is a much quieter film, that's more about tension, mood and relationships.

The story begins with Gretel (Sophia Lillis) and her much younger brother Hansel (Samuel Leakey) being throw out of their house by their deranged mother after Gretel refuses a house-keeping position with a lecher who had more than a passing interest in the state of Gretel's hymen. They travel through the creepy woods and meet a huntsman who feeds them, lets them bathe (unmolested) and gives them directions to find "The Foresters" where the two can perhaps work for food. Gretel will even get the chance to learn herbs and the like, so she won't have to earn her money on her back. This is not a time or place that is kind to women or children.

Ultimately, after growing hungry and tired again, they see a house in the distance. Through a window Gretel spies a table heaping with food. And so they meet the Witch.

A different movie would play up the "children in danger" aspect and that aspect is present, but the usual "good vs evil" conflict is a bit more evenly matched this time. While Hansel's use to the Witch is pretty obvious, Gretel has the potential for "witchiness" herself. And the Witch wants to teach Gretel. So, there's a kind seduction at play that has little to do with sexuality. It's a kind of... maternal seduction. Beyond that, the Witch is offering Gretel Power and Choice at a time when most women have little of either. So when a frightened Hansel wants to leave, it's understandable that Gretel doesn't really want to return to a world where her main choices will boil down to drudgery or prostitution.

One neat little scene is the one in which Gretel has her period. Nothing is said. Lillis looks under her sheets and the next scene is her quietly washing them and her bedclothes. No jokes are cracked. No comments made. It's a nice bit of subtlety in a movie that really does do a pretty good job of "show, don't tell." It falls apart a bit at the end, but still concludes on a note of hopeful if slightly ominous ambiguity.
