Welcome Spook-a-Doodles...We've been waiting for you...



Horror films are unsettling films designed to frighten and panic, cause dread and alarm, and to invoke our hidden worst fears, while also captivating and entertaining us with a cathartic experience, often with a terrifying, shocking finale. Horror has existed as a film genre for more than a century.

Horror films center on the dark side of life. They deal with our most primal nature and its fears: our nightmares, our vulnerability, our alienation, our revulsions, our terror of the unknown, our fear of death and dismemberment, loss of identity, or fear of sexuality.

It is the best film genre, and has been blessed with amazing fans.


General Rules Ghouls of Conduct:

This is a chill thread. Respect your fellow posters. We are all eccentric weirdos that love horror films, so there's no real reason to be an rear end in a top hat over differing opinions.
Spoilers: err on the side of caution. Horror movies succeed in embracing the unknown. Certain films, such as Sleepaway Camp and Jacob's Ladder, are better seen without knowing the twists and reveals. So even if a movie is 30+ years old, if it's better left as a surprise, please keep that surprise intact.
Images, Memes and GIFs that show blood, guts and gore are fine. If an image is too extreme or has triggering content, please provided a NMS tag. Images (including posters), Memes and GIFs that show nudity must be hidden behind spoiler tags or linked and marked with a NWS tag. You can be probated for breaking this rule, so please think before you post.

It's not good bad, it's just terribly mediocre, and repeats things from the first trilogy (for example, boob lipstick) with none of the craftmanship or creepiness in the original scenes.

It's okay in the aspect of 'people trapped in a house until dawn' subgenre movie but as a remake, it's meh.
