Quiet Place part 2 is on paramount and I had a free trial so I guess it's time to watch the sequel to possibly the single most over rated horror movie in history and grumble about how it has a 91% on RT afterwards.

Quiet Place Part 2 is very accurately named, because it’s basically just an additional hour and a half of the same movie.

It also doesn’t have a proper ending, so get ready to wait for Part 3!

wait... does that mean Halloween 6 is back in continuity?

And that once again makes me annoyed they didn't give Danielle Harris the mom role.

Nope. Just would’ve been a continuity thing for the fans. It’s from the latest Total Film. It even goes into very explicitly that Green and McBride are VEHEMENTLY against trying to explain any backstory to Michael. All that “Legend” “supernatural” “power” talk in the trailer was purely about how you give these evil figures power through their mystique and not that they actually possess super human abilities.

Society is wonderful. I love the sudden ending that would be the lead-in to the third act of any other movie, but all the money and enthusiasm obviously went into the orgy.

Lol you ain't kidding. It's not even a cliffhanger or a gotcha. It's more like "tune in next week to find out how it ends", oh wait oops it's a movie. I'd say overall it was somehow moderately dumber than the first one, and the first one was really dumb.

Pro: Cillian Murphy <3 instead of John Krasinski. Pro: more poo poo actually happened. Con: everything else pretty much. Don't get me wrong there are worse movies out there and AQP id highly watchable, but it gets under my skin for some reason.

I am really willing to suspend my sense of disbelief for post apocalypse stuff. Books, movies, games, usually just fall back on fudging stuff to keep the story going, and that's fine for the most part. Not everything needs to be The Road. And I don't want to be one of the "b-b-but gasoline wouldn't even work" people. That poo poo gets annoying. But there is something about the complete lack of attention to detail in AQP that drives me nuts. It's not even worth doing a play by play of all of the things that make no sense, because almost nothing makes sense. They just set up this ridiculously loose set of rules they decide they can break whenever they want. There's zero consistency to anything. It's such a lazy looking apocalypse too. Does electricity still work? Yeah all the street lights are still on when we need the lighting but then the next area looks like it's been abandoned for 20 years. Let's go to the pharmacy that just puts everyone's prescriptions out on retail shelving for some reason? Plants just look glued on everywhere. Why are they growing in a circle around a hole in a train lol. Ok now I am being the gasoline guy, but that poo poo is lazy as hell.

Also the scene with the Redneck weirdos was the dumbest, most pointless thing. The movie somehow felt 30 minutes too long at 90 minutes.

I watched Stephen King's Sleepwalkers the other night, and it's currently at the top of my list for movies I want to see another run at. I'm guessing the biggest problem is that it was written by Stephen King, and based upon one of his own unpublished short stories.

It's got that weird 90's pre-Scream forced camp energy that never quite works. I feel like especially in the early 90's there was a trend where horror took a look at the camp factor of 80's slashers, and attempted to emulate it without understanding it, so it just comes off as silly.

It also spends most of its time with the antagonists, who are basically just horny incestuous crackheads. It doesn't really work in this situation because they're straight up unlikable. Then there was the violence against cat puppets, it was really shocking for a movie with its tone, and once again didn't quite fit because it was unearned.

The good parts were definitely Clovis (although ACAB), wet puppets, and weirdly this is probably one of Stephen King's better endings, but it still wasn't great.

Man, I really wish I could've watched Society for the first time and had no idea what was in store. But I only heard about the movie after people kept posting the "butt head" with no context, kind of like how people posted that final shot of Sleepaway Camp without context until I watched the movie knowing what was coming.

Still a great movie, but if you had no idea that final sequence was coming it'd be so much better.

30 Coins is kind of a bonkers ride that absolutely just does its own loving thing from start to finish. I absolutely had no idea where it was going to go next and it was great. It felt like a super R-rated Millenium to me from time to time, though that might just be me.

I'd never heard of that other movie so that's getting bumped to the top of my watchlist now.

I love how the movie looks and feels like some harmless 80s teen comedy but various things early on are just… uncanny. Vague intimations of perversion and incest just under the surface. People whose body parts seem to face the wrong way. Like, what the hell is going on?

I watched The Empty Man and Spiral this weekend. Spiral was good torture porn but entirely predictable and Chris Rock looks like he’s got a migraine every time he tries to act.

The Empty Man was weird as hell, a bit too long, but I still liked it.

Reading this thread, I don’t think I’ve ever watched sleep away camp or the original prom night and I’m ashamed of myself since my favorite horror is slasher horror.

I only watched it for the first time earlier this year when Severin released it on UHD, and it’s really fun dark comedy/horror. I think the only reason it isn’t better known is that it wasn’t really available to watch in the US until recently.

Yeah, this. It makes me very happy in spite of the extreme violence promised for Kills. In the original movie Michael is brutal, but he is more methodical than impressive and that's what makes him a classic figure. Witness how he pins Bob to the wall and then inspects him, like a butterfly collector after pinning a specimen. Michael kills with his hands until he finds a knife or a strangling cord, then he kills with that. If he drops it, he picks it up again before he moves on. The stuff that happened in the sequels with al fresco kills didn't really ring true with me, so it concerned me that Michael seemed to be reverting to the Halloween II style with things like the neon tube stabbing. But when Green and McBride both said (paraphrased) "you don't need to know where he comes from, only that he is" I knew that they both get the essence correct.

I didn't think there was too much? But I saw it a while ago and I might be just be misremembering or desensitized, so I'm not sure how accurate my judgment is.

I really enjoyed it though, I know that much. I like snowy horror movies and horror comedies and Werewolves Within delivered on both.

It's not particularly gorey at all. I watched it and it could be considered PG 13 gore at most.

I was quite lucky with Society, During the early 2000’s I used to buy job lots of old VHS tapes for super cheap, One had a copy of society in it that didn’t give away to much on the cover (a picture of a woman in a dress pulling her face away) it was enough to get me intrigued so I put it on and it quickly became one of my favourite movies.


Of course now I have a shiny new Arrow Blu Ray but I still refuse to get rid of that tape.

look-
a post,


gently caress! The 7th Victim is fantastic. What a mood. Love it, love it, love it. That shower scene! The scene with the poison! Both are so unnerving and imposing for how simple they're. And then that entire section with Mimi near the end is perfect and deranged and gah! The pacing felt off at the start but the weak connective tissue actually was working in favor of the movie at the end.

The devil worshipers were so human. Even at the end the shaming them with the prayer rang so hollow. The one scene where a member lets something slip to the lead felt so much like the group getting outed.
Also how unsubtle can this line be

quote:

My dear, we were intimate. The times we use to have together! I bet she never told you about that - you're too young.

The fact that there is this emotional malaise that hangs over the entire movie that is finally broken through by Jacqueline's lover knocking the poison out of her hands and breaking down is so suddenly heart wrenching and evocative. Gah! And that ending.

Yeah, one of the great things about The Seventh Victim is that even the Satanists are ultimately just frightened people who are trying to make sense of the hostile world around them and deserve more pity than scorn. Behind the horror surface lies one of the best existentialist dramas Hollywood ever produced.

I threw on a trashy Amazon Prime horror (as I usually do) tonight and was surprised it was released this year and featured a lot of fun makeup and creature designs - despite being badly written and with a terrible plot I had an okay time.

I do get what you mean. It's how you get a movie like Stepfather 2 after the first one, Child's Play 2 after the first one, etc. It was almost like the filmmakers were trying to get across this idea of "Don't take any of this too seriously"

I watched Edge of the Axe last night, a largely ignored slasher movie that's on Arrow's streaming service.

It felt like a fairly unique slasher movie to me. It felt like there were stretches where it was actually easy to forget there's even a killer around, and it has a pretty Shyamalan tier twist ending.
