Lake Mungo is barely a horror movie. It's a supernaturally laced rumination on grief.

It just happens to have one of the best scares ever. Additionally, to this day after seeing it upwards of ten times, the Ken Burns zooms on the photos at the end showing that she's been there the entire time but the family isn't capable of seeing it, gives me chills every time including right now as I type this.

The Boondock Saints is Donnie Darko for people who have screamed a racial slur at a TV while a sports game was on.

I've never seen a movie fall apart so quickly in the last 15 minutes as Assassination Nation did. It's like they forgot to finish the script.

The beauty of great horror is that it can dig deep into your soul and scare you without throwing spook-a-doodle monster CGI faces at the screen. Hereditary hosed me up because that dinner scene felt way too familiar with an alcoholic father. My friend's favorite film of the year was Mandy because his wife passed from cancer and he said Mandy was basically a power fantasy for a widow, being able to destroy the intangible demons that took a person you love. We both loved Annihilation because it's about coming out of trauma irrevocably changed.

Anyway, horror is pretty cool and I love this thread. Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

Godzilla's Revenge was on on TNT/TBS a lot in my youth along with Megalon and Ghidorah making it possibly the Godzilla film i've seen second most. I have yet to see Destroy All Monsters and I'm a little embarrassed about it.

Brightburn was a turd. How do you have that good of an idea and waste it with high schooler level writing and imagery lifted straight from the infinitely superior Chronicle?

Burkion posted:

Hmm

On one hand, Brightburn sounds like a filler movie that is built around its one idea but only it


On the other hand, Max Landis wrote Chronicle and that alone is worse than most things...

Chronicle is great and what gave him enough cred and exposure (other than his last name) to later show what a loving hack creep he is.

Lords of Salem is the first RZ I didnít hate outright and Iím at a loss for a great way to put why into words other than itís his least try-hard movie. It feels like a complete story and not yet another deep dive into redneck serial killers.

Oh and I missed horror chili talk but watch Motel Hell bitches.

I never saw the 2006 remake, was it any good?

It exists. I think a Sorority Row and a Prom Night remake came out around the same time and they were all inoffensive nothing you forget the moment it's over and wonder why it came to be in the first place. It's probably the best of the ones I listed? Tough to remember.

Not nearly as rancid and offensive as the Silent Night Deadly Night remake that is a good argument for destruction of art.

VHS1 is a great seed of an idea that mostly works (the glitch killer is unwatchable imo) and 2 runs with the idea and is an all timer anthology. VHS3 is... different? But I think I still like it? Iíd probably have a different answer to this every day.
