I've only ever seen the first Friday the 13th and, honestly, didn't really like it. But I've been led to believe that the sequels are better, so I'm giving Jason another shot.

What movie (or what two movies, tops) should I watch to see the best the series has to offer? Preferably something with Kane Hodder, and bonus points if it's available to stream for free somewhere.

Does anyone have any tips for actually deciding on what to watch instead of scrolling for eternity until I turn into dust

I used to get choice paralysis with streaming services. You have to learn that there's no "right choice" and just pull the trigger on something that looks neat.

If you spend more than five minutes looking for a movie that might also mean that you're not in the mood for a movie.

Someone asked about horror movies involving twins recently. Shudder just now added The Other, from the 70s, first time I've seen this film available anywhere for a while. It's kind of ... tame as far as violence or gore but it's creepy and will scratch the itch of anyone into good twin/evil twin stories.

Just watched this tonight. There are a few things about the movie that feel extremely predictable, but those threads are wrapped up in the first hour and then the final thirty minutes are off the rails in a way that really blindsided me. I'd recommend it, with the small caveat that you need to give it time to go to work.

Have a couple requests for the thread. I'm looking for a movie inspired by Carmilla and also a movie with Chinese hopping vampires.

I'm okay with subtitles and the age of the movie doesn't bother me. Thanks in advance for the recommendations.

What is some good non horror, horror stuff to you guys? Like, stuff that doesn’t fit the horror mold at all, but still manages to invoke fear, dread etc. and give you the same general vibe you get watching a good horror film.

Ever seen Phone Booth? That movie doesn't get enough credit.

Edit: Coherence is maybe an inch or two over the line and into horror territory, but it's another possibility. Ex Machina, too.

I personally didn't find the flashbacks jarring but I was very comfortable with the Tarrantino-esque "chapters" flow of the narrative. So the little flashback interludes between chapters worked fine for me. Obviously if you prefer a more fluid narrative or don't like that kind of storytelling I can see how they'd be more disruptive.

Same here. I chuckled a bit at the flashback within a flashback, but it takes more than that to ruin my entire viewing experience.

The Perfection is not an AFI Top 100 candidate but it's good trashy fun. I recommend it.

Thought it was alright until the near end. I looked up the ending and glad I did. Fast forwarded it to the very end. No thanks.

Hagazussa's ending is one of the few things to ever make me feel queasy in a film. Take it on yourself whether that's an endorsement or not.

I don't think Hagazussa is a great movie, but it's consistently beautiful and takes a wild turn at the very end so it's definitely worth checking out. I think it's so minimalist that it ultimately winds up shooting itself in the foot, though. Really feels like a movie made by a cinematographer. Would've been nice to have more defined characters, but that would require dialog so here's a twenty second shot of some trees instead.

Here's my opinion of Autopsy of Jane Doe, charted:



Same, honestly. The movie really pulls you in with its core mystery just to push you back out with a lot of unnecessary running around. It's like they were afraid to just make a spooky autopsy mystery in a morgue and shoved in a "gettin' chased by the spooks!" scene every twenty minutes. And every time the scene just kinda resolves itself with no real action on the part of the characters. By the end of the movie I just didn't care anymore.

Most vampire stories are about sex and/or romance. There are dozens (if not hundreds) of worthwhile examples. I'm particularly fond of Thirst.

There's also stuff like Spring and Nina Forever kicking around.

The ending is Deus Ex Machina with a bit of a fake out. Not bad but still felt like a bit of a letdown. Alex turning on her was also kind of dumb.

It's a better, funnier You're Next

I can see that. I personally enjoyed Ready or Not's ending based simply on the fact that it made me laugh. The husband's heel turn was necessary but too sudden--if the middle of the film was anything but the bride running from the butler they might have done something more interesting with the character.

I appreciate how straightforward and simple the movie is, but I do wish there had been some kind of reversal or new wrinkle to the plot at the midway point. As it is the movie feels a little monotone.


Anyway, good movie. Not great, but good.

Speaking of Grady Hendrix. Satanic Panic is not good and you shouldn't bother with it unless you can see it for free.

I watched it over the weekend and I thought it was fine. Definitely not great, but I enjoyed it. I laughed out loud a few times and there are some great practical effects (and one or two that are hilariously bad and only endeared the movie to me more).

My biggest complaint is that it's shot like an episode of a sitcom. Static cameras pointing at small crowds of people, always at eye level. The movie is just consistently boring to look at.

One of the most horseshit things in horror mythology is how people minimize Tobe Hooper's contribution to Poltergeist.

Don't know why that just popped into my head, but gently caress that. He directed that poo poo

Didn't that all start with a Variety editor who saw Spielberg shooting some second unit stuff and assumed that Spielberg was just making the entire movie?

Spielberg tried to fight it, to his credit, but the damage was already done.
