    The Last Voyage of the Demeter was a good watch.

    I kept thinking Clemens was Childish Gambino until I realised it was the actor who played Heath in The Walking Dead.

    I just ordered Last Voyage on DVD, looking forward to it.
    edit: just finished it- really enjoyed it! I'll get to the bonus features later, but this one will be going into my October rotation.

    Thoughts? I think it looks like it could be pretty solid.

    The Miramax 'Halloween' tv series will be a creative reset for the series. Looks like it's well underway too, so that's exciting.

    Important quote:

    ďThe foundation of it is the original film, the John Carpenter movie, the characters of that film, and perhaps a group of characters that we havenít really focused on that much in recent film versions or even in a number of them. It's a creative reset completely and going back to the original film, as opposed to spinning out of any of the more recent film adaptations."

    Shit, who is left to focus on from the original film? They've already brought back every character at one point or another.

    Obviously, no idea...like everyone else. This is my all-time favorite horror series so I'm cautiously optimistic but yeah. Who knows lol.

    In some good news today, looks like at least one bridge has been mended.

    That sorta reminded me of Alien Isolation but with more facehuggers. Impossible to say from this teaser if it's good or shit, but so far I'm in. Please just let it be better than Covenant.

    It just looks like a product that has no need to exist.

    I'll take a sequel that doesn't need to be there over any prequel that pretends to be seminal.

    It's not like any Alien sequel needed to exist. Aliens kills the whole premise of Alien by basically saying "Hey, one xenomorph is kinda cool, but a thousand is way cooler, amiright ? High five !". On paper, it's a very lowbrow approach to the original's menace, something a kid would dream up.

    I see Alien sequel like they're comic books. You've got a Cameron, a Fincher, a Jeunet (yep) take hold of a premise and run with it. If anything I wish the studios just let authors have their fun, it's a universe that lends itself to pure horror, action, metaphysical questioning or just campy fun. It's surprisingly adaptable, the lore is minimal (yeah, fuck Prometheus) and allows for any interpretation, just like its central recurring monster.

    That Alien products don't need to exist is kinda part of the fun in my eyes. It's more often miss than hit, sure, but so far it's filled with lots of retrospective fun if you don't take it too seriously.

    What was the general consensus here re: Hellraiser 2022?

    Just watched it and I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t care for it much either.

    It was okay. Better than the DTV sequels at least, but it felt like the Blumhouse version of Hellraiser. I felt like it could have gone farther than it did.

    In general, I'm always pretty skeptical of any remake, sequel, prequel, reboot, requel, etc. Especially ones that involve riding the coattails of a great 70s horror film (see the latest Exorcist).

    But even I have to admit the trailer for this looks pretty decent. Doesn't mean the movie will be, but so far so good. It probably helps that I never really loved The Omen all that much. It always seemed a lesser film than things like Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist, and The Shining from that era of horror. I respect it for what it is, but creepy children in horror is a weird genre that does nothing for me and so the fact this story is going to focus on something other than a creepy kid might be good for it.

    I should add though, that my bar for religious horror is pretty high this year, as I just saw Immaculate last weekend and it's going to be hard to top that I think. The film did not hold back any punches and was smartly written with a very clear point, a point it conveys without being too heavy handed and leaves the viewer with plenty of room for contemplation. Leaving the theatre I may have said it was a bit too lean, which would be a rare criticism from me because I love lean, concise films. After thinking about it for a week, I think it's efficiency will work in the long run and it's themes and messages will still be interesting many years from now.

    I just saw Late Night with the Devil in the theaters, and I liked it. Itís supposed to come out streaming on Shudder in a couple weeks I think. Entertaining concept, interesting aesthetic, good actingÖ the possessed girl is legitimately unnerving. considering what itís about it never really goes off the rails into batshit territory. Maybe the ending could have been a little more satisfying, but Iíll avoid spoilers.

    Iíd recommend it, at least to check it out when it comes out on Shudder
