I am a horror film fan, and I just recently watched "Would You Rather". It was ok, pretty goofy.

I liked it, but mostly because of Jeffrey Combs. Without him it would've been pretty dull I think.

I watched Mausoleum (Vinegar Syndrome's black friday release) yesterday and it was pretty fun. Surprisingly good makeup and gore effects for a low budget film like this. The rest of the film has some bad acting and writing and some very dull cinematography, but the supernatural/creepy stuff is a blast and looks really good. I think it is aware of this and doesn't waste much time on the boring stuff. If you like schlock and cheesy '80s horror, I'd recommend it.

Santa brought me the Collectors Editions of The Fog and They Live, along with a pre-order for the CE of Prince of Darkness. These are the 4K remasters with the new documentaries and featurettes, spread over four discs each. That's me sorted for a while.

Anyone else find something nice, or at least suitably horrible, under the tree?

My girlfriend got me this framed original poster for The Haunted Palace, signed by Roger Corman!

STAC Goat posted:

How do people regard Inferno? All the years I never actually watched Argento I always associated Suspiria as the film I HAD to see and then extrapolated out that the Three Mothers Trilogy was something I had to see (and in fact I'd say part of the reason it took me so long to see Suspiria was because I had it my mind that I had to see Inferno and Mother of Tears as well and it was a small miracle to find all three available or affordable at once).

Now that I've actually seen Suspiria it seems like Opera, Tenebrae, and Phenomena are the next big talked about films of his while Inferno is largely an after thought (and Mother of Tears seems regarded badly). But I've always seen stuff that suggests Inferno is really underrated. So I'm curious.

Basically, if someone hypothetically were to say "You have to see Suspiria" and you were to say "I have, but I'll watch ____" what would be the natural choice? Because I gather "Inferno" is the wrong answer despite it being my first instinct.

my favorite Argento films after Suspiria my next two favorites are Deep Red and The Bird With the Crystal Plumage, followed by Tenebrae. Inferno is okay but not on the same level.

the same goes for the entirety of the evil bong series

there's nothing wrong with the Evil Bong movies, but The Boondock Saints is a movie for edgy teens about how murdering people you don't like is cool and good.

I do too, it's a fun movie. I think it sometimes gets more praise than it deserves though (hence the backlash), and someone calling it their all-time favorite movie of any genre is a little :psyduck:.

Greetings. Habitual lurker here. Decided to post since I feel like I'm running into a dead-end: If I have Amazon Prime and Netflix, are there any horror movies in either that I might be overlooking worth the while?

I recommend using JustWatch to browse - you can filter by service, genre, etc. Here is a list of all horror movies currently on Netflix for example:
https://www.justwatch.com/us/provider/netflix/movies?genres=hrr

Some on there that I personally liked a lot are The Ritual, Raw, Hush, Green Room, The Autopsy of Jane Doe, Train to Busan, Creep/Creep 2, As Above So Below, Murder Party

So I just watched Waxwork II: Lost in Time and holy poo poo it was fuckin great. I didnít expect much and only watched it because it was in the Vestron release with the first one, but I loved it. Really cartoony and campy, like the first one but even more so. They donít really travel through time, itís more like jumping between different horror movies - there are riffs on Alien, Frankenstein, and The Haunting, amongst others. The Haunting one is in black and white and features Bruce Campbell, and it has a great slapstick bit at the end.

Also there is a scene where Frankensteinís monster squeezes Baron Frankensteinís head so hard that his brain pops out of his skull and shoots across the room. David Carradine shows up at one point. And it ends with a goddamn rap song and dance bit over the end credits. I was dying laughing.

Scream is better movie than Hellraiser and it's not even close. Hellraiser is great and all but Scream is a nearly perfect movie. :colbert:

Not sure how another Scream movie could work though - another continuation of Sydney's story would be dumb, a faithful remake would be unnecessary, and a reboot with different characters might as well just be a different film. Lots of life left in Hellraiser though I think.

Good point, same goes for Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Fly then, they are based on short stories.
