Unfriended: Dark Web was both one of the dumbest and most fun movies of 2018. Also creepy as gently caress sometimes. I really hope we get more Unfriended movies and the next one focuses on creeps on Tinder and stuff :allears:

War is horror, right? I saw They Shall Not Grow Old (Peter Jackson's World War 1 documentary featuring restored 100-year-old archive footage from the actual war) tonight and it was heartbreaking but really well done. Lots of gnarly shots of hosed up corpses, people that had trenchfoot, etc. The footage looked way better than something from that era, too. It didn't look like a movie made in 2018 obviously, but the footage looked several decades newer than it actually is.

Basically, if Peter Jackson is putting anywhere near the level of care into the restoration of Dead Alive as he did this one, it's really going to be something special.

The House That Jack Built was certainly a Lars Von Trier movie! It's sadistic as gently caress, but not in an entertaining way (at least IMO). It has a unique style and it's pretty meta (LVT even includes footage from his previous movies in this and repurposes it), but I didn't enjoy myself while I was watching it.

I've seen enough Lars Von Trier movies that I should know by now that they're deeply unsettling experiences. I don't know how I feel about them. I mean I guess they're well made and have a very distinct feel, but I don't know that I'd say I love any of them.

Why'd you see it twice if you thought it sucked? Haha

Although I can't really talk since I've done that before myself. I paid full price twice to see The Last Jedi and thought it sucked both times.

I disagree about Overlord, though. Sure, it's not great, but it's a fun enough little movie that's not like a lot of what you typically see in theaters. It's not going on my favorites of the year list, but I had a good time watching it.

Watched The Endless last night and also thought it was good.
The Endless was great! I actually put it on my favorite movies of 2018 list.

I had no idea it was a spiritual sequel to Resolution because I'd never seen Resolution and had probably never heard anything about it outside of this thread's ancestor (and didn't remember what I'd heard about it there), so it wasn't exactly on my radar. After watching The Endless, I watched Resolution about a week later and that was great too! Although I didn't feel like I had missed a ton watching The Endless first. The two movies share a lot in common, yeah, but I think they can be watched independently of one another and not suffer as a result of not seeing the other one.

I think Endless doesn't lose anything by you not seeing Resolution, you just get a couple of extra kicks out of it if you recognize the parallels. But it seems like watching Resolution after Endless would kind of sport that movie a bit. I mean, Resolution is really more about the journey than the destination so it wouldn't do it entirely. But you do basically learn exactly how the movie ends in Endless.

Also if you like those movies I'd recommend Spring from the same filmmakers. Very thematically similar. Discovering Moorehead and Benson was one of my favorite things of the October marathon and I look forward to whatever they do next.
Eh, I still thought Resolution was a well-made, solid movie despite knowing ahead of time kind of what was going on in that universe :shobon: And a lot of that journey isn't shown in The Endless, only part of it.

I'll check it out! Before seeing Endless, all I had seen from them was the Bonestorm segment of V/H/S Viral.

I'm saying it everywhere, but Unsane is really good.
:yeah:

It made my favorite movies of the year list. I saw it in theaters, loved it and rewatched it a week or two ago. It's still great! The whole part about it being shot all on an iPhone is just an extra reason it's so cool, not the main focus of it. I've seen Claire Foy in a few other movies and I think this is the only one I've really enjoyed her in.

It's on Prime, so you should definitely check it out if you have that.

Went and saw Escape Room, which was essentially a cross between that Saw sequel where everyone turns out to be linked together by the insurance scheme and the Resident Evil movie where the locations keep shifting. Not anything great, but not as lame as I thought it would be either.

Hey, just a heads up that the new season of True Detective premiered tonight and the first 2 episodes are directed by Jeremy Saulnier, the guy who did Blue Ruin and Green Room! I don't know if he's directing the whole season, but I certainly hope he is.

Also I got some pretty strong psychological horror vibes from that first episode. I got chills like crazy near the end. Reminded me a lot of Se7en. I've gotta watch that second episode.

Definitely did not think I'd be saying this show was good again after the poo poo second season, but that first episode was better than that entire last season!

Yeah it's good so far, but Saulnier left the show over differences with Pizzolatto, so he only directed the first two episodes. I'm worried that the rest will suffer from his departure. Hope not.
Aww man :( I hope whoever directed the rest of 'em took cues from his work on the first couple. They're SO GOOD.

Daniel Sackheim and Pizzolatto himself trade off directing duties for the rest of the season.

I've only seen the first 5 episodes, but none of them are as well-directed as Saulnier's episodes. Which is to be expected.

Uh... is there some kind of connection between HDD and Parkland? Because they're not just changing the date, they pulled the movie from that area as a whole (including areas around Parkland) and aren't even showing ads for it there.

That seems genuinely over-the-top.
I guess just because it's called Happy Death Day and it's set on a school campus and it's coming out on the first anniversary of the Parkland shooting, so it's taunting people in that market who are trying to heal.

IIRC there wasn't any kind of school shooting scene in the first one. Not sure if there is in the 2nd one.

I think your mileage may vary depending on what your own family is like, because the family in Hereditary felt very real to me, and was one of the reasons it was so unsettling.

I saw it twice to be nice to friends.
How was it unsatisfying when you consider most of the poo poo landing in theaters nowadays? It was a neat original concept that wasn't a sequel or remake or part of any pre-existing franchise brought to life by a director without many credits to his name that accomplished pretty much everything it set out to do.

I'd love to crack the code to why you didn't enjoy that film one day haha
