You guys and your prefabbed NECA masks, get on my level :v:





Cost me about $12 in materials to make, and I really want to make some more some time because it's so much fun. Maybe one for each movie.

I made a calavera Jason mask for Halloween a few years ago.

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.

Was Diary of the Dead just the one hand held camera or did it switch to other cam sources? I forget.

I donít remember if I asked this in the old thread or not, but I had a conversation with a friend awhile back thatís stuck with me, and I want to open it up to everyone: in Gremlins, is Gizmo technically the father of all of the Gremlins that spawn off of him, and does that make Gremlins a movie about infanticide? And does this mean that his adoption of the Rambo persona in Gremlins 2 is even more on-point when you take into account the massive PTSD likely developed from murdering thousands of his offspring?

I'd say they are more like siamese siblings than father/children.

Aside from Angel Heart, are there any great horror films about a detective/police officer who goes to investigate a mystery and finds something supernatural? I guess In the Mouth of Madness sort of works in the same vein.

The First Power with Lou DIamond Phillips is really underrated. The Denzel Washington movie Fallen is another one, and borrows heavily from The First Power.

I wouldnít call either of them great but Cast a Deadly Spell and The Resurrected are fun neonoir horror

Cast a Deadly Spell is great! The only thing is that it's not a detective stumbling onto the supernatural, but an alt history movie where it posits the question "what if magic and the supernatural were real and matter of fact and existed in 1940s Hollywood?"

They made a sequel called Witch Hunt which is just as good, but they recast Fred Ward with Dennis Hopper.

Do you mean The Night Flier, because that movie is really loving good.

Night Flier's a Stephen King adaptation. Night Stalker and Night Strangler are the two Kolchak movies.

That drat movie has almost any gore scene you can imagine. It's impressive.

To avoid an x rating all the gore scenes are completely tinted red in the theatrical print. When I first moved to LA, Edgar Wright screened a 35mm print of it at the New Beverly with the red tinted scenes. Seeing that movie in a packed theater was awesome.

Ha, my ma got me this horror movie themed trivial pursuit game and I opened it up thinking the questions would be all softballs, but there's some deep cuts in here.

Here's a couple rondo questions from the game.

What is the name of the pub that protagonist David Kessler visits at the start of An American Werewolf in London (1981)? this is an easy one

Over how many years was Eraserhead (1977) filmed?

In Audition (1999), what number is Asami designated in the audition process?

Who directed The House on Sorority Row (1983) as well as episodes of Lizzie McGuire and Even Stevens?

What was the game? Those are good questions. I have "Slash Cards" which is that caliber of difficulty.

The game's full title is Trivial Pursuit Horror Movie Edition 100 Years of Horror, looks like it came out in 2009, so it's missing any horror trivia from the past ten years.

There definitely are some easy questions, but like I said, there's a good amount of some legit head scratchers.

I'm thinking of dropping a little money on horror.

Is this thing worth the price? 30 films. Obviously a bunch of classics in there and I'm leaning towards it but not totally sure.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00L8QP082/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Also can anyone tell what the difference between these two is? Did I just find some weird Amazon bug or are they just different printings of the same thing that weirdly got priced differently? Obviously I won't buy either if I decide to buy the big one.

https://www.amazon.com/Universal-Mo...7PNK7YFCJQYBZ69

I figure its worth spending money to get the classics I haven't seen, but I'm always a little weary about these big box sets that I'm going to get bad quality or a bunch of discs thrown in a bag all scratched up or something. Or with stuff like this there's often a "bad version" and "the right version." I figured you guys would know if one of these was a "bad" set.

That 30 movie sets absolutely worth it. I got most of them separately as they were being released, I think I'm only missing the Invisble Man and Phantom of the Opera discs, and the sets have some great bonus features, like Spanish Dracula and an alternate Phillip Glass/Kronos Quartet score to the original Bela Lugosi film.

Just got out of Escape Room, it was fun trash. Better than Saw but not as good as Cube.

This is backwards to me because Cube had a good premise, but the first one's knee capped by some pretty lousy acting and all the follow-up sequels are awful, whereas the Saw series at least kept ramping up the rowdiness. I love all the goofy transitions in Saw IV.

Iíd like someone to make a meta horror movie where thereís lots of scenes inside of cars but every one is filmed from that low angle driverís side shot that they always do right before the car gets horrifically t-boned, but never have an accident actually happen. Also there could be a bunch of scenes where people wash their face in front of a mirror, and when they lift their head thereís a musical sting but nothing scary is ever behind them. Working title could be Edging or Edge Lords or something like that.

Mel Brooks kinda did this with High Anxiety.

The entirety of Mandy as seen through Adobe Premiere Pro.

To give you a sense of scale, every "V" is a visual element and every "A" is an audio element. The visual element that reads "MANDY" around the 1 hour mark on the timeline is the title screen of the film. Look down the column and check out all of the visual and audio elements put into just those seconds.

The blue vertical line just past 2:30 on the timeline is where the screen on the right is. Look at everything put into just a shot of Nicholas Cage looking past the camera.

That's definitely an Avid sequence, not Premiere.

Single monitor setups are a drag tho.

Hello. My name is Sacheen Littlefeather. I'm Apache and I am president of the National Native American Affirmative Image Committee. I'm representing Marlon Brando this evening, and he has asked me to tell you in a very long speech which I cannot share with you presently, because of time, but I will be glad to share with the press afterwards, that he very regretfully cannot accept this very generous award. And the reasons for this being are the treatment of American Indians today by the film industry Ė excuse me [boos and cheers] Ė and on television in movie re-runs, and also with recent happenings at Wounded Knee. I beg at this time that I have not intruded upon this evening, and that we will in the future, our hearts and our understandings will meet with love and generosity. Thank you on behalf of Marlon Brando.

John Wayne threatened to beat her up after she went backstage, and there were audible boos during her speech. Brando's disdain for these hypocritical vampires makes all the sense in the world.

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.

Speaking of which, I did a double feature of the new Mary Shelley this weekend along with Ken Russell's Gothic. It's interesting to see what details both movies focus on (they're both about the Shelleys' stay at Lord Byron's and the events that led up to the publishing of the Vampyre and Frankenstein).

Is this good? I've recognized the box art for what feels like my whole life.

It's a little weird but has some really great ideas going on it (it's set during an all night horror movie marathon and the students running it come across a lost cursed/haunted film), and the soundtrack is very reggae-influenced since it was shot entirely in Jamaica. The trailer doesn't give too much away and gives a good sense of what the movie's like.

It makes for a great double feature with Joe Dante's Matinee.
