    I assume he means the Spoiler: head stomp to Dr. Sartain near the end. He also might mean the kid in the truck with the dad. Oddly enough my favorite kill was a simple one. It was the one with the woman closing the blinds and he stabs her in the neck and the blade goes through the other side.

    Add me to the list of people who loved Halloween (2018). My only real complaint was some of the misplaced humor ("Oh shit!"), but other than that, I thought it was great.

    Just watched The Killing of a Sacred Deer. It's fucking excellent.
    It's by the same director who did The Lobster and Dogtooth.

    It's a WEIRD fucking movie. It's farcical, absurd, and surreal at points.

    This one is so much more than a horror movie. It's not great because it's scary, although it's pretty fucking chilling.

    It's just a great, highly original movie.

    Spoiler

    Saw the new Halloween movie a couple of days ago and man that’s what you call a R-rated movie ! Myers was brutal and that scene in the bathroom with the teeth, fucking terrifying. Although My favorite scene was when that fat kid got stuck and killed on the fence and then the music came on, that song is incredible for that particular scene.

    Even though the story doesn’t really ever change it still was great. 8.0

    Safe to say the ETS crowd verdict for the 2018 Halloween film is positive.

    Great!

    @Deepvoid i, too, got a kick out of Unfriended: Dark Web.

    I think it's a fucking brilliant idea that's just INSANELY urgently relevant. The movie is experienced through computer and phone screens, like a lot of our lives are, and the fears are real-the fear of people getting hold of our data in various ways or watching us through our cameras.

    I just think it would have been WAY more effective as a series of YouTube videos or something is the only thing.

    wow, im really surprised anyone who's a fan of the original enjoyed this recent entry. it was terrible, just compete garbage...no diff from how poor 4, 5, 6, H20 etc. it was a jumbled mess, there was no pace, no sense of dread, unnecessary story lines, stupid one liners, the scene with the dr was up there with worst in franchise history. the comical inflatable pumpkin during the opening set the tone for what was just a massive disappointment.

    Disregarding the post above me, the new Mondo Tees pin I bought for my vest is awesome!

    In other news,

    Ahead of last Wednesday’s Halloween episode of “The Goldbergs,” wherein Robert Englund stars as Freddy Krueger, Englund appeared on Access Live this afternoon, and he was naturally asked if he’d ever be up for playing Freddy one more time in another Nightmare on Elm Street film. Englund has been asked this same question multiple times over the years, but his answer this time was a little bit different. It seems he may not be fully retired after all.

    “I think they want to reboot the franchise, but they’re gonna need a new actor,” Englund told the show’s hosts. “They’re gonna need a new actor to play Freddy because they’re gonna have to do eight of them. I might have one left in me… but yeah.”

    It’s a divisive film for sure. But I think the rotten tomatoes scores and fan opinion match it.

    Pretty much anyone who only likes the first one hate it, anyone who just enjoys the franchise likes it.

    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 don’t really look at rotten tomatoes to judge a movie by its quality, but this time around, I think it’s accurately portraying how people feel about it. 75% liked it, 25% didn’t.

    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 what’s turning my off from picking up the steelbook. I’m going original since it’s 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.
