It's definitely more comedy than horror, but anyone checked out Vampires vs. The Bronx on Netflix? It was pretty fun, I liked it. Some Attack the Block vibes.

Hunted kinda fuckin ruled. It's my favorite subgenre of horror/thriller (spoilers though it's in the trailer anyway) Victim turning the tables on the killer, with some slightly fantastical things thrown in.

The ending was pretty viscerally satisfying for me too.

I know it's not really considered horror, but thinking about checking out Starman. Any thoughts on it?

Starman IS good!

Ending was probably a little, uh, optimistic though.

So I ended up watching The Empty Man over the evening and it turned out to be much better than I was expecting. Everything about its outward appearance makes it look like one of those cheap horror movies that studios burn off in January, but the movie's more ambitious and more composed than that. James Badge Dale anchors the film well as an ex-cop investigating a nihilistic cult, and the film pays due homage to its influences by quoting Kill List and In the Mouth of Madness. The film is a little too unruly for its own good, and it takes a while to see how the more initially anomalous elements fit together, but it's a decent rental.

Maybe it was a different movie, but I think the trailer for this just made me think of The Bye Bye Man.

Someone here recommended They're Watching for a found footage movie. Just checked it out, pretty standard stuff, but holy poo poo the last 20 minutes had me cackling.

I've had multiple people tell me Spike Jonze's music video for Y Control by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is way too creepy/scary, and have even had to turn it off before for someone. :shrug:

Hadn't seen that one before, that's creepy as hell. Also, I have a hard time with doggo violence, even if it's fake :(

If a horror movie has a great kid death I give it an extra star. I think my brain might be broken.

e: don't you dare touch that dog, though, that's a good dog who has done nothing wrong! But that kid's gotta be stopped before it turns into an adult.

The one in the original Assault on Precinct 13 was a good one.

I remember disliking As Above So Below in theaters, particularly due to the ending, but maybe that's just because at the time I really wasn't used to horror films getting Happy endings and it's probably something I'd appreciate a lot more these days on a rewatch

Spoiler is exactly why I liked it, you never see that, especially in found footage.

Just watched Dead Alive (or is it Braindead? Why is there two different names?) for the first time.

Left me almost speechless, that was the most insane thing I've ever seen. The amount of sheer creativity on display is CRAZY. I feel like it should be more well known? Or maybe it is and I just never hear about it. The effects and gore still totally hold up. Just blew my loving mind.

Yeah it absolutely rules, it was one of the first horror films (along with Evil Dead II) that made me realize how much I loved the genre. There was another film called Braindead that came out around the same time so it got renamed to Dead Alive for the US market. And I think it’s very well known among horror fans at least.

Yea, see I always hear a lot about Evil Dead's gore effects, but I never really see Dead Alive brought up. But I also have no friends so it could just be me.

It’s also kind of hard to find right now. At least like Blu Ray wise. I ended up watching it on YouTube.

Yea that was really annoying, I ended up watching it on YouTube also, luckily there was like 5 uploads of it.

New season of Creepshow on Shudder starts today. I know the quality of these are all over the place, but I think it's pretty fun. The first episode features Bob Ross fighting a deadite Ted Raimi.

I never checked out the first season but I remember hearing it was a bit of a crapshoot. Anyone got a few to recommend from that season? I love Creepshow and anthology poo poo so I’m pretty forgiving.

I also have a soft spot for anthologies, but I don't think any of it was total garbage. Off the top of my head I really liked the man in the suitcase one.

vvv hell yeah

I forget where the thread landed on Eight Legged Freaks but I just caught it and that poo poo is good. It was way less "2002" than I was assuming, and had some really nice plotting and characters. A ton of fun and strikes just about the right tonal balance for a horror comedy, surprisingly so for that era.

Also the new episode of Creepshow is fun. Not as good as the premiere but the season is shaping up to be a nice cheapie Tales from the Crypt.

Speaking of Tales from the Crypt, why isn't it on HBO Max or something? I'd love to revisit it.

Binged a bunch of Tales From the Crypt over the weekend. it holds up like crazy, and I can't count how many times I yelled at the TV when an actor I knew was in it. They pulled in a lot of talent.

Hey-- out of curiosity, is Gretel and Hansel particularly shaky? My wife and I are looking for horror to get caught up on tonight, but she has intense shaky camera sensitivity.

I would say it's like the opposite of shaky.

I need suggestions.

The only thing that really freaks me out is spelunking and people getting wedged in places and stuck.

The one episode of The Walking Dead where it happens really got to me, surprisingly.

I've seen The Decent and As Above So Below.
Suggestions?

I seem to remember Sanctum freaking me out a bit.

Holy poo poo, the ending of the new Creepshow episode with the giant queen bee animatronic and Aliens-esque honey beehive monster feeding is the coolest thing I've seen on screen in a long long time :stare:

The other segment's ending was also fantastic. Both got off to a slow start but finished strong. I've got a very good feeling about this season.

The monster actually gave me The Thing vibes

I love that they are using practical effects, and they look really good!
