I'll enter into an accord with you that furthers both of our individual goals:

From this point forward I will always refer to the xenomorph's inner mouth as a Tim

You help me by always referring to the main zombie in Return of the Living Dead as Juicy Zombie. JZ for short is also ok.

Savageland is so loving awesome. One of the best found footage style horror movies ever made. The use of music is outstanding as well and that, combined with the creepy photos the movie uses to illustrate the horror, is some of the most chilling stuff I've seen in a horror movie in a long time.

This movie really hits on why I really love Found Footage when it's done well. It doesn't have to be "OH MAN SPOOKY GHOST ON MY CAMERA I NEED TO FILM THIS PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW!" poo poo all the time. You can do awesome stuff with it and mess with well worn tropes in amazing ways.

MAJOR SPOILER!!! This is one of the creepiest zombie movies ever, dead stop. The photos are so perfectly done and make it even more terrifying than footage would have.

It's on Prime, watch it ASAP. It starts slow and there's a certain cheesiness to the beginning but when it hits the ground it doesn't let up.

My wife came in while I was about a third of the way into this and I had her convinced it was an actual documentary for a bit.

Ok so hear me out. Unfriended 3. It's some teens talking on Skype or whatever and one of them is like, "Hey I just got a link to a weird video", and sends it to all of them. The video? Thering.mov

Best crossover. The movie then follows them through their seven days but only shown through Skype chats, video calls on their phones, and CCTV cameras.

Is there a new way to do zombie movies? No one has come at it from a new angle in a long time. I liked Fido but that was like 12 years ago. I'm trying hard to think or something interesting or original in zombie horror from the last 10 years and I can't remember anything super good. Except Savageland. Even though that movie's premise could have worked with any kind of horror movie creature.

This is a serious question: What is everyone's dream/unique take on found footage they'd like to see?

For me: Zombie Apocalypse scenario done through security cams, news footage, police body-cam footage, cell phone footage etc.

Found footage killer scarecrows. I want a build up though. Maybe the first third of the movie is a farmer documenting damage to his crops and livestock deaths. Then he sets up some security cams around the farm and you get like 10 minutes of Paranormal activity style "Did I see something move"? and then Bam! A fuckin scarecrow saunters into full view. The climax of the film is the small town population taking up arms against the scarecrows escalating into a small town war. The scarecrows are possessed by evil spirits or some poo poo caused by a local Amish outcast, and the good Amish show up at the end and fight some scarecrows with the townspeople. The Scarecrows have farm tools as weapons of loving course.

Think paranormal activity/Night of The Scarecrows/Army of Darkness.

I love showing people Tales From The Hood. It's a movie that unfortunately holds up just as well in 2019 as it did when it was released. Except the last segment. Last segment sucks.

I haven't seen the sequel. It gives off a Creepshow 3 kind of vibe.

Has anyone seen Bad Ben? It's horrible, but it's become an obsession with me and I've now seen all five (?) sequels. It's a weird series and perhaps the first film series to come into being because of Amazon Prime letting people upload any old garbage for free.

Yeah I fell down that rabbit hole a while back. They're increasingly bad, but oddly compelling. Definitely worth watching just to see someone making something they really seem to enjoy.

I thought Shudder and Shudder on Prime were two different entities? They were when I signed up for Prime Shudder when it first released.

I have no idea what the current status of the Shudder Prime add-on is, because we got word from Shudder like 3 months ago that they'd been dropped by Amazon. But then the channel never went away, so now I'm scared to ever let my subscription to it drop because then I might not be able to get it back. And I kinda expect that randomly one day it will just disappear because Amazon thinks they got rid of it but they never actually did, or something.

Wait what? I was unaware of this. It's the best prime add-on. I just resubbed to it like a month ago. It's still staying updated and poo poo. Like the banner had Mandy and the recent releases (Tales From The Hood, etc.)

I don't know what I liked about it. I liked the way it looked i guess, especially the old timey scuba diving scene.

Some people like going into films without knowing the plot too. I went in completely cold to Mandy, which made for a better experience because even though it's a pretty simple premise, it's able to play with preconceived expectations if you don't know what the plot is or where it's going to take you.

Yeah. I did that. About 30 minutes in I wanted to turn it off but it was late at night and I figured it might turn around. It totally did.

Last night I saw one that I kinda liked. There’s Nothing Out There from 1991. It’s a low budget (made by the director in film school and edited by his dad) meta slasher/monster movie. It’s neat to see something like that that came out before Scream. Not sure if it’s objectively “good” but I laughed a few times. It’s on tubi for free at least.

I will check it out on my next days off. Horror Thread always comes through with a recommendation, even though I watch the worst subgenre: FOUND FOOTAGE.

Hi I'm here to drag everyone back in scarecrow talk. I want a movie about the Amish fighting sentient Scarecrows with farm tools and maybe like an old civil war cannon. The battle can spill out onto the streets of a quiet Pennsylvania town and the townspeople can help fight the Scarecrows as well.

The sentient Scarecrows were summoned by an evil Amish outcast. Also lol that my phone capitalizes Scarecrows.

FreudianSlippers posted:

I wonder if evil scarecrows are exempt from Anabaptist pacifism.

I dunno. Do the Scarecrows have faces? Also can Scarecrows be considered dolls?

"A sociological study from 2007 says that the dolls are left faceless because "all are alike in the eyes of God", and that the lack of facial features agrees with the Bible's commandment against graven images."

"There are several accounts of the origins of faceless dolls used by Amish children. One account says that a young Amish girl was given a rag doll with a face for Christmas. Her father became upset and cut the head off the doll. He reportedly said "Only God can make people.""

So I'd say that the Amish would find Scarecrows (with faces) an abomination and a slight against god that needed to be destroyed. If the Scarecrows did not have faces then I guess they'd just leave them alone. I guess there's not a movie to be had in my premise if it's predicated solely on Scarecrows with faces.

What if it's about an Amish farmer who makes a faceless scarecrow but the next day he wakes up the scarecrow has a face and no one will admit to doing it. He has to destroy the scarecrow according to his beliefs, and builds another, but again, the next morning someone has made a face on the new scarecrow. Is he slowly going insane or is someone sneaking into his cornfield at night with a Sharpie!?

Idle Hands is underrated zombie stoner horror comedy. I actually rewatched it about a month ago. If any old horror movie deserves a Shout Factory release it's Idle Hands.

Edit: The no-frills Blu-ray is 10.42 USD on Amazon with Prime shipping. No one has an excuse.

Edit 2: Amazon knows me too well. It's like, "You should also buy The Faculty, Hard Ticket to Hawaii, and The Frighteners". drat I'm really bout to buy Idle Hands on Blu-ray.
