    Throw my card into the hat as well for Halloween. What a breath of fresh air (even if its a sequel) for the genre...my only complaint were some of the over acted scenes like where JLC is loading the shotguns and gives a brief description of what each gun is meant for. Other than that, I loved everything else.

    I posted this in the vinyl collector's thread but I'll post it here too for extra appreciation:



    In other news I just bought two movies on blu-ray.

    Those being both the critically acclaimed Hereditary and Mandy. I am excited to watch both!

    Went to see the Suspiria remake last night. It was a bizarre and engrossing film. I can't even compare it to the original (which I love) because it's such a different experience overall. Half the audience (including a couple that brought their three young kids with them...what the fuck?) walked out before it was over. I guess they were expecting something more like the recent Halloween sequel, which this was definitely not. Anyway, it was a top notch film with great performances, beautiful camera work and choreography, and a solid score by Thom Yorke. It's a LONG film, but very rewarding if you're willing to see it through till the end.

    Since I mentioned it, I also saw the new Halloween film a couple weeks ago, and I thought it was fairly disappointing. For a film that was branded as going back to the basics, it sure seemed to borrow a lot from the films that followed the original in terms of making things way too complicated for no good reason. That said, there were some good scenes in it, Carpenter's update of his original themes worked, and it was nice to see Jamie Lee Curtis in Sarah Connor mode, even though she wasn't given enough to do until the last act. I wanted more with her and less with those idiotic podcasters and Michael's doctor.

    The podcasters were fine, and they were in the movie for a minimal time and served their purpose on how Michael gets his mask. The doctors purposes was fulfilled but his arc I did not like.

    I donít really look at rotten tomatoes to judge a movie by its quality, but this time around, I think itís accurately portraying how people feel about it. 75% liked it, 25% didnít.

    Watched Suspiria last night and absolutely loved it!!! It really resonated with me on many levels, this is exactly the kind of horror I enjoy the most, a little bit artsy, weird, nuanced, but still delivering some good scares. There is one twist in the story I didn't care for, so it's not quite flawless, but man, it came really close!

    Halloween drops on 4k January 19, 2019 and unless I see anything better, the BestBuy steelbook is the way to go for me. I rarely buy movies anymore but this will be an exception.

    Not a big fan of steel books. I love the art though. The logo also looks awesome.

    All I can say is...don't go into it expecting Argento's original film, because it's definitely not that film.

    The logo is whatís turning my off from picking up the steelbook. Iím going original since itís poster art and it will fit in theme wise with my 15 disk box set and 4k of 78.

    Just watched Hereditary on Christmas night and holy shit - that was disturbing and crazy and I loved it. It reminded me of the The VVitch in a lot of ways, though the emotional trauma around death and coping hit home as well. I need to watch it again because I feel like there were clues that I didn't pay attention to that I should have.

    Hereditary is up there as one of the years best no doubt.

    Went to see my folks last weekend and we watched Halloween. Everyone loved it! I must say that it's a joy to see my parents who are in their 60s having so much fun watching horror movies. My mom is screaming constantly which makes my dad and I jump more than the actual movie.
    Anyways, Halloween was definitely fun to watch.

    I also caught Hell Fest yesterday which I thought was a bit overrated. I guess it was a good slasher movie but since I had seen Blood Fest like a month ago, it didn't feel fresh.

    Poster unveiling......



    I hope this is great! I used to get these from the library when I was in elementary school in the 90's and I fell in love with the creepy, wispy art and the fun stories. My grandmother got me the full collection this Christmas as well.

    Guess Aubrey Plaza really needed a paycheck. Her taste is usually much better than this.

    That was Plaza right?

    I watched Overlord tonight. I thought it was fantastic. Started off slowly as WWII action movie but about midway through, the gore switch was turned on and it went balls to the wall. I thought it was great. Definitely fun to watch and entertaining as hell. Solid 8/10 as far as I'm concerned.

    Have any of you guys seen Dagon, a 2001 film? It's quite unmistakably a b-movie, with mostly bad acting and some of the worst cgi 2001 could offer (thankfully very sparsely used), but I'll be damned if it's not one of the best Lovecraft adaptations that you can enjoy. It's loosely based on "Shadow over Innsmouth" and despite its flaws, it actually gets a lot right about the atmosphere. Check it out if you like Lovecraftian lore.

    I have and its good!
    Nothing to "scream about", but much better than "Necronomicon: Book of the Dead".

    In my opinion the best Lovecraft film adaptation is "The Call of Cthulhu" (2005), it does recreate that "old movie" style.

    Yeah, I really really enjoyed Us. The chanting from the score is still stuck in my head and the imagery from the underground is sticking as well.
