Finished Fear Street tonight and Iím confused about something. So killing Sheriff Goode ended the curse, but the implication there is that his brother, who was both older and was the mayor so more powerful, was totally uninvolved? Iím not sure I get that bit

There is that scene in part one where the sheriff leaves a note reading ďitís happening againĒ at someoneís house, I guess meant to be a fakeout where we assume itís Gillian Jacobsí house, but I guess it would have to be the mayorís house in light of part three? I donít know who else would make sense as the recipient of a note like that, I guess the subject being ďsome kids are trying to ruin our satanic pact again like in the 70s.Ē

The way I saw it was that the older brother, Will, was a fuckboy by the time he was old enough to be let in on the deal, while Nick was "the responsible child", so their father was grooming Nick to be the one that takes over. Will only becomes mayor because of what Nick is doing with his devil stuff, and also likely helped by Nick having him be the one that drives the rest of the people at Camp Nightwing to safety in 1978. Nick becomes sheriff both because their dad was sheriff and he was groomed to be it from a young age, and because of devil stuff their father and him both did. Mayor Will is more of a figurehead.

Re: the note, I do think Nick gave it to C. Burman. The house he drops it at is the same house front we see for her and it really doesn't look like any of the huge Sunnyvale houses that we see later. You're right, though, it's left pretty vague, and I think it was put there more to make people have any reason at all to think the sheriff wasn't evil, as if he were trying to reach out to Ziggy to warn her or get her help. Most likely, he was either trying to use the note to scare her into hiding even harder, either because he actually does still like her and wants her on even higher alert so she doesn't get hurt, or because scaring her pre-emotively may help make sure she stays the hell out of things, since she knows more about the curse than anyone but him and could work with the kids to end it. Or both.

Yeah, everything looks kinda lame standing alone under bright lights. You see the seams. Like I've never made a movie monster suit but I've done set decoration and holiday decorations and graphic design and other stuff. And everything looks a little off isolated unless you have the capacity to visualize the finished combination of elements. Its that combination that makes magic.

I've been dipping my toes into 3D modeling/rendering for a project, and in order to get the camera moves down I have all the virtual lights hidden. I got them working, previewed it, then lamented that it all looked terrible and questioned my entire approach. Then I did a render with the lighting on and wowza did it look vastly cooler and I got pumped about the project again.

I think I'd love a condensed, 90-100 minute version. Over two hours (counting credits) and I felt it even with the second half being solid

Went into this completely blind, not even hearing about the cast. Was happily surprised to see Dominic Purcell :unsmith:

Yeah it did have a sense that it just kept going. There is some awesome stuff in there but I wonder if it could've been cut down a bit. I did really enjoy the flashback stuff, though I'd almost prefer it in its own movie.

I saw Old last night, and I thought it was pretty good. It's kind of clunky with exposition, but nothing that totally ruins the movie.

The ending dragged a bit, but I thought the twist was a good spin on why these people were lured there by the hotel, even if I kind of wish it was left ambiguous.

I was kinda expecting a big undo button to be hit, and I'm glad it wasn't.

Lots of the Shudder Originals are really excellent (and this list isnít counting Exclusives like Psycho Goreman, there are plenty of those that are great too). My top picks would be:

Revenge
Host
La Llorana
Blood Quantum
Horror Noire
The Mortuary Collection
Caveat
Fried Barry
Anything for Jackson
Leap of Faith: William Friedkin on The Exorcist

Roughly in that order

Finished reading The Keep today. It was pretty good. The early parts of the book were kind of Deja Vu because Iíd already seen the movie, and it just felt like a more fleshed out version of that. The middle made more sense due to details that were either cut or would never have made it into the movie. By the end the whole thing made a lot more sense. Not sure about the wisdom of backloading so much of the explanation into the last few chapters of the book though. I could see a lot of people getting bored in the middle by thinking it was a bog standard vampire story.

I know this was a couple pages back, but I just wanted to say I first read this about 20 years ago and I loved the abrupt turn from vampire story to cosmic horror/fantasy.

If you liked it, you should seek out the rest of the books in the series, The Adversary Cycle. The first three books are unrelated (The Keep, The Tomb, The Touch) and then F. Paul Wilson decided to tie everything together with the last three (Reborn, Reprisal and Nightworld - on the page I linked here, it looks like he prefers a different order to how they were originally published,). The first three are good, Reborn and Reprisal are slow but have their moments, but Nightworld is one of my favorite apocalyptic horror/fantasy novels I've ever read. It's clunky as hell but it's fun. He's apparently expanded on these six since then (a bunch of Repairman Jack novels that take place before Nightworld and a lot of other stories expanding the universe) but I haven't read any of those.

Man, that's difficult. Nurse in the hallway from Exorcist 3 is pretty tempting, but so is the sleeping bag kill from F13th Part 7, Olga's death in the Suspiria remake, and the vomiting out her guts scene in City of the Living Dead.

I remember gasping in shock in the theater. It's so loving crazy and so out of nowhere. Although, in hindsight, that's probably not how skin works at all 🤔

God that movie was so much better than it had any right to be. So many incredible scenes in it.

As for an underappreciated scene that I love, I truly feel that the best (and possibly only good) scene in the most recent Hellboy was the one where Hell opens up and some loving Book-of-Revelation-rear end demons crawl out and produce 30 seconds of a Beksinski painting loving a Bosch painting by way of Godzilla.

Old was okay. Nicely shot and a couple of good horror moments but sometimes clunky dialogue. Itís also not subtle in any way, but I recognize this thread is not exactly a subtlety crowd. Iíd probably rate it like 2.5 or 3 out of 5.

I saw the Malignant trailer ahead of it which was pretty cool, I guess. I saw a headline saying it was inspired by giallo, which does not show AT ALL in the trailer. I was hoping to see the Demonic trailer too but no dice. (Yes, I realize I could just watch it on YouTube via this very thread)
