Yea, it looks like comedy house of the devil, and I like Gradyís books and the last movie he wrote (Mohawk) was excellent. I mean it could suck, but Iíd be kind of surprised given the track record.

hell yea! Raw was so good.

I also recently watched the first two slumber party massacres for the first time. Both are pretty great, but the sequel was surprisingly good and heady. Also super nostalgic, since aesthetically, the house was just like my aunt's house when I was a kid.

On Hellhouse LLC3: Better than 2 but

I think one, the concept is great runs up against keeping the big reveal of Russel doing all this to shut the gate until too late, and being found footage.Like eccentric billionaire back from the dead doing it all deliberately to lure out the evil and shut it down is rad, but it also hew too close to the format of the others to really work.

I wish the people from 5 Second Films would make another movie. DBPM III is such a fun subversion of slasher horror while at the same time staying true to slasher horror. I'm only doing movies I own for the challenge thread so I think I'll buy a copy.

Edit: Amazon has the Collectors Edition for 25 bucks. I think I'll take that plunge.

I just watched it last night. It was a blast.

Florence Pugh is now my favorite actress. She was so amazing in Midsommar and it was such a stark difference from Fighting with my Family.

If you're into podcasts, Ari Aster is on the latest Doug Loves Movies and I think I love him. He's way too high, but so very charming. It's weird to think that this and Hereditary came from him.

Spoilers from the first bit of Midsommar:
In the first fifteen minutes, when she's howling over the phone, sounds exactly like my Mom answering the phone when her brother killed himself. It hosed me up so much that I had to leave the theater the first time I tried to watch it.

I think it's the most effective movie I've seen in years and she's a huge part of that. I'm very excited for her.

Also, Ari made two amazing, original movies and he's such a sweetheart. I don't know what's next for him but I'm there opening day.

Hereditary gave me a panic attack in the theatre, the worst one I've had in years and the only one ever triggered by a movie.The sequence from the car ride to the discovery to the funeral was way too tense and real, and how did Toni not get an oscar nod

No. There was no redeeming anything in the Nic Cage version, it was a lazy re-imagining of a much better film that added bees for some reason. I love Nic Cage (occasionally), but gently caress that movie.

Disagree. Itís a bad remake but itís at least dumb in a silly way unlike Gus van santís psycho which is just boring and bad.

First horror memory is either The changeling on tv or The Witches in theaters both terrified a very young me. I was absolutely terrified of the trailer for a movie before either Batman or Batman returns where a tv sucks a family into hell. I avoided movie trailers for a good long while after that.

When I was a little kid UPN aired Alien Abduction: Incident In Lake County, in a "it might be real!" kind of way. It scared the poo poo out of me. For like a year afterward every night when I went to bed I would stare at my bedroom door, convinced that it would swing open and there would be an alien there

I rewatched that a couple of years ago. I wouldn't say it holds up exactly, but kind of impressive for a tv movie from the 90s. And it pre-dates blair witch and last broadcast when it comes to found footage too.

Oh man, I strongly disagree with you on this one. Not only did I really enjoy it, it's now one of my favorite horror movies of all time and I loved the magic realism.

It's always weird when you come across someone who loves/hates something you hate/love for all the reasons you hate/love it.

Glad I'm not the only one who loved it. I wouldn't say it's an all time fave, but definitely in the top 5 horror flicks I've seen this year. Which says more about how good this year was for horror than anything bad about Tigers

"I know writers who use subtext and they're all cowards"

Is basically my reaction to the new Black Christmas. Itís super on the nose and thereís not a whiff of subtlety. Itís so earnest i was worried it was parody. Itís not! Itís not much of a remake though and definitely isnít the classic the original is, but there are worse Christmas horror movies.

I laughed at
the professor head of the frat cult is basically Jordan Peterson so yea itís on the nose but I canít really blame it for being so direct on its topic. Itís also pretty cleverly pg13 theyre all possessed by black evil alpha goo so that leaks out instead of blood even if itís functionally the same in the lighting

In the spirit of Christmas Iíll round up to a 3/5. Probably donít need to rush out to see it but itís be worth watching next Christmas at home for sure

The Houses October Built movies are literally just generic youtube travel blogs with horror skits tacked onto the end.

The most notable thing about either, besides the sucking, is that the evil funhouse skit in the first one uses recognizable sets from Lords Of Salem.

Wasnít that what happened? I thought they were making a documentary and couldnít find a distributor, until one was like ďcan you make it found footage?Ē

I also kind of like them in that itís sort of like falling asleep during a travel channel special on haunts and having a weird dream.

watched the Perfection and was kind of luke warm on it.

I don't think it gave the subject matter the weight it deserved. Would have enjoyed it more if it was basically any sort of torture aside from sexual assault on children. didn't really click with everything else going on. Which isn't to say I don't enjoy a good rape/revenge flick, but it seems like they shoved something like the us olympic gymnastic abuse into an overly twisty thriller script they had already written, which is to say it's more about the headfakes than the serious real world events it mirrors. I'm not against that sort of real world abuse being used in a horror movie, but I don't think this one succeeded.

I'm in the middle of watching 1BR, and it's been good so far, but I had to take a break because I just got too upset when the cat died. I knew it was coming, like the second that cat showed up I thought "oh that poor baby is dead", but it still made me feel sad when it happened. I hate it when pets are killed in horror movies. It's super common, but I've never gotten used to it. I just really love all cats and dogs and I want them to be safe and happy, ya know?

I think the film can be an exploration of Jakeís complex thoughts and feelings and memories without needing a diagetic explanation like drugs/hallucinations.

Iím glad people are liking it, I thought it was really great too.

Sure I donít entirely disagree but thereís a lot in the film that leads to a reading that Jake is dead or dying. If it was Jake as male identity and not like literal death, I think the ending would be different.Though I guess Jake/or the janitor itor whoever is the real world Jake is could have just spent the night meditating on things in their car in the snow.

Ringu is so much better than Ju-On. My only real complaint is that, having seen the American version of The Ring, I was let down by the face reveals in Ringu. In The Ring, the people who got hosed up by the tape looked, well, hosed up. In Ringu it's like, "please don't look upon his hideous visage. He died in a gruesome way." *Pulls down sheet to reveal dude with caked on makeup doing his best "surprised" face*.

I refused to see the ring because I was a lame freshman in college who was mad there was a pg13 remake of a Japanese film I never saw to begin with.

Should probably rectify that.
