I'm sure Nicholas Cage will scale back and do something less insane after Mand....

I hope Nic Cage keeps this streak up.

And TAG and Why Don't You Play In Hell, etc. I don't think there's a more eclectic filmmaker working today, and IMO, he's stuck the landing every time.

I feel like once you've seen Roar, you're spoiled for animal attack movies after that. Nothing is ever going to stack up to the pure hell insanity of that production, or at least that was my experience. How can you go back to CG animals, or even ones done with practical effects, after watching those real-rear end untamed lions go buckwild on Melanie Griffith and her family?

I watched it at a midnight screening so maybe my memory of it isn’t the best, but I remember it being fairly slow and kinda boring.

I saw it at a midnight screening where the whole audience was cheering for the lions like it was pro wrestling. It owned, but YMMV.

Pontypool, Girl With All The Gifts, and Endzeit were a few newish takes on zombie/rage monsters that I enjoyed. Altered Skin is also not bad, and is unique enough by setting the story in Pakistan.

Well yeah, the whole movie is about a man with literally nothing inside him trying to call up some creative "spark" that just isn't in him. He takes no feeling in, and puts no feeling out and yet he keeps trying to create something.

Yup. I found it fascinating in an American Psycho way, like it's an exploration of emptiness while also being really funny in the absolute darkest way. I will say, though, that I did miss what was cut out of the directors cut after watching the theatrical version this weekend, and the Kvlt!'s of the world should probably skip right to the DC if you can get your hands on it.

What was that newish Western Horror the was supposed to be good in 2018? Someone had mentioned seeing it at a festival and really liking it a few months ago. Did it get a wide release yet?

Edit: It's The Wind and it's releasing in April of this year.

It's so dang good. I got to chat with one of the set dressers after the screening and she said that they went wild finding artifacts from that time period to place around the sets, even for things that would be inside drawers and probably never show up on film. I got the sense that the whole thing was a real labour of love, and it shows.

I just finished up Cold Skin on Shudder and I have to say I really really enjoyed it. It's a interesting film. Not exactly what I was expecting but overall thought it was a great Lovecraftian film.

I really loved this one too. I think it suffers a bit from being released so close to Shape of Water because the creature design is so similar but it's a great story. Nothing at all scary that I can recall, though, outside of what I think was a lesson about the horrors of colonialism.

Watch that loving poo poo (Let The Corpses Tan) with headphones, every bit of that sound design should be savoured.

E: it's not giallo in the least, but the filmmakers did Strange Color Of Your Body's Tears, which is trying probably way too hard at being giallo. This one is like a Western siege movie and it rules.

Re: Cold Skin, I think the mowing down of the creatures was meant to come off as a tedious chore after the first couple times they show it. Like, sure that would be fun for a while but then it's several nights in the freezing cold just basically shooting fish in a barrel. And after they humanize the fishfolk, it's downright ghastly. Maybe they could have done more to drive that home though.

I saw Al White's Starfish last night. It's not exactly a horror all the way through but it's got some really unique and genuinely scary creature design. It's all over the place narratively and has everything from an extended anime sequence to a breaking of the fourth wall, but it's a pretty remarkable piece of work with a great soundtrack. Virginia Gardner, who had a side role in Halloween 2K18, is just great in it.

I rewatched Bones very apprehensively because I really wanted it to hold up, and it definitely did that and then some. For one thing, I'd forgotten that Pam Grier was in it(and basically the star of the movie). But like Neo Rasa said it's made with so much obvious love for the genre that I probably wasn't able to appreciate when I first saw it on t.v. as a teenager.

Oh they added that to Shudder?? I saw it in its theatre run and loved it, and the soundtrack is rad too. I know what I'm doing tonight.

E: oh for fucks sake it's not on the Canadian one. I guess I'll watch Miike's Over Your Dead Body instead.

Late to this but after it's festival run it was picked up by A24 but it's release was pushed to April this year. It's supposed to be very good and very weird, and was one of the hardest tickets to get at TIFF this year (I didn't get one, and I can normally get into just about everything)
