Who would remake a movie that is only 14 years old?
Anyways, was this good?
Also, horror general. What are some recent gems?
Hardmode: no discussing It Follows or The Babadook that's right, no hipsters or horror casuals allowed, because that's what those movies are, hipster films for horror casuals

14 year old me will always remember this movie fondly for being the first time I heard a jolly african-american joke in a film. I was like "did that just happen?"

Goodnight Mommy is on Amazon Prime Video. I want to check that one out.

The Nightmare is an interesting horror documentary.

The call girl of cthulhu was good if you're into 5-figure-budget b horror movies.

How are it follows & babadook "hipster" movies? it follows got a wide release & babadook got a relative wide release considering it's an australian movie. the horror genre isn't exactly mainstream in general, but these two films had crossover appeal...

Did anyone watch Rec 4: Apocalypse? It was better than Rec 3 at least, and picked up where Rec 2 left off.

Any word on if we'll ever get a VHS 4, or was VHS Viral so bad that nobody cares anymore? I guess that they did take the tapes mythology in a direction they can't go back from now.

I saw Goodnight Mommy when they did a limited release of it in theatres in the US. I had to take the Metro into DC to see it at the theatre it was playing at. It's much more of a psychological horror film with a 2 or 3 graphic scenes but I enjoyed its pacing and how it shows more than it tells.

Nah bro just being hardstyle fagster, but seriously I haven't seen any good recent horror movies. I'm just going to namedrop "The Final Programme" as one of the first childhood horror movies I remember. Oh and "The Blob" was a great remake.
What the fuck are we talking about again? Oh yeah I kind of liked The Babadook, because we were blazed as fuck when we watched it and it was hilarious! The movie was some kind of retard-level plot-twistiness though.

The remake was totally pointless. It's more or less a shot for shot remake without any of the charm. It's painfully mediocre and downright baffling. Why? A cash in? Cabin Fever isn't exactly the most well known franchise. I'm just confused more than anything.

Anyways to everyone that loves subtle lovecraftian horror you need to check out Black Mountain Side. It's very similar to the Thing in it's premise but it's executed perfectly. It also doubles down on the "cosmic horror" aspect. So good.

Come on. The 2000s had some fun flicks like 28 Days Later, The Mist and Jeepers Creepers to name a few. Post-2010 has had Trick R' Treat, V/H/S, The Cabin in the Woods, It Follows and the Babadook.

Oops, I guess we're not allowed to mention those last three because they're popular, or something? Whatever. I understand we're on the internet where everything sucks, but I've never understood how people can completely write off the horror genre from 1990 to present. There's alot of shit, but it's not like there haven't been good (or great) horror flicks since then.

With movies like The Babadook and It Follows I feel like there's starting be a resurgence of low-key atmospheric horror versus the bullshit Blumhouse jump-scare marathons. At least the torture-porn subgenre appears to have died down. I dig it.

Yeah but the 2000's isn't really what I'd call "recent". I wasn't too keen on 28 days later, but I loved The Mist because it was probably my favorite Stephen King short story. Jeepers Creepers felt like any other teen slasher, wasn't impressed. Wasn't a fan of V/H/S either. Haven't watched It Follows, I'll check it out.
But hey we all like different stuff, for an example I liked The Burrowers and Dead Birds and I thought Mama was great.
The Masters of Horror was pretty nice too.

What grinds my gears are spooky ghost movies, an abundance of shitty zombie movies and syfy-channel giant mutant animal attack movies. I mean sure it's not like I have to watch them or anything but it's a bit sad when you look at the horror movie releases and you're met with so much disappointment.

Yeah, but there's always been a 20/80 split of quality/crap in the horror genre, or arguably any genre. For every classic 70s and 80s horror flick there were ten cheap knockoff schlock movies. It's always been that way.

Also I notice you didn't say anything about Trick R' Treat, most likely because it's fucking dope! Probably my favorite horror flick since 2010. I can't wait to see Krampus, which is the same director and apparently also very good.

After 2009 I can't think of any good horror titles. Definitely some good unsettling dramas(We Need to Talk About Kevin), and fantasy thrillers/adventures(Trollhunter, The Frame).
Most recent gems I can think of would be Curandero and The Descent. Both 2005.

I bring it up every horror thread, but The Descent is so fucking good. Definitely my favorite "modern" horror.

I liked The Orphan a lot, it's more of a thriller but dat twist and it has a child actor who's actually good.

I like Mama. The reveal of the monster was kind of a let down, but overall I enjoyed it a lot and Del Toro rarely disappoints. On that note, The Orphanage is killer.

Good horror gems?

>Home Movie(2008)
In the remote woods of Upstate New York, David and Clare Poe are attempting to live an idyllic life. However, their twin children's bizarre behavior might just tear the family apart.

>Pontypool(2008)
A psychological thriller in which a deadly virus infects a small Ontario town.

>Would You Rather(2012)
Desperate to help her ailing brother, a young woman unknowingly agrees to compete in a deadly game of "Would You Rather," hosted by a sadistic aristocrat.

All of these are worth seeing. And Cabin Fever was terrible. The 3 movies I posted don't rely on jumpscares like the majority of horror films that came out in the last 10 years or so. Jumpscares are not scary, a loud noise startles someone that's not the same thing. Over reliance on that shit has killed the horror genre.

Bumping because I watched two really good horror movies and Gran Torino today.

The first movie was You're Next (2014) and I was really into it despite not being a fan of the home-invasion subgenre. The movie was shot through with humor and I would call it "fun" horror but it wasn't too winky-noddy and took itself just seriously enough for the tension to be real. Always fun to see a dysfunctional group of characters who mostly hate each other try to survive a night of being picked off one by one; the movie is like House on Haunted Hill meets The Purge. Solid throughout, well written characters, capable cast, and a great ending. My one complaint is a couple of odd editing choices where scenes from earlier in the movie will occasionally replay, as if to say "hey remember this from earlier? Well here's why this scene was foreshadowing! Do you get it now?" Yes, I got it the first time. It's very jarring and unnecessary, and made me think I was watching a faulty copy of the movie. It only happens twice, but I'm baffled as to why the director (who also edited the movie) felt the need to do it. A little bit of shaky cam here and there, too, but it's not deal-breaking.

I also saw Last Shift, which was great. It's basically a haunted house/survive the night movie that takes place in a police station with a lone rookie cop. The woman who plays the cop does a great job and really carries the movie, the atmosphere is tense and isolated and there are some really great creepy scenes that make it stand out from movies that are long on atmosphere and short on actual events.

Also worth noting is the fact that there are arguably no jump scares, (same with You're Next) which is always welcome. I know it's always fashionable to say that everything was better back then and everything is shitty now, but it's hard to argue that there haven't been a good number of solid horror flicks in the last half decade that haven't relied on cheap jump scares. The ending of Last Shift is kinda lame but it's definitely worth a watch, especially if you're not a fan of Blumhouse-style popup haunted house movies.

I'm gonna assume the past few years is recent enough because I don't watch enough horror to speak for just this year or 2015.
Zombeavers was pretty great in the category of campy horror, Honeymoon was one I really liked though I'm not completely sure if it counts. I also really enjoyed The Conjuring much more than I though I would and it was from the guy who did Saw. The Den and Djinn were entertaining, I think In Fear was my favourite recent-ish horror film. Most of those were on Netflix I think lol.

Also, I recently watched V/H/S 2 and got to thinking about what the best compilation of the short movies would be taken from the whole series. I feel like if I were to put together my own mix of the shorts for an optimal viewing experience it would be Succubus Girl, Prosthetic Eye That Invites Evil Ghosts, Parallel Dimension Guys, Haunted House/Cult/Possession Story from the first movie, and Zombie Go-Pro, roughly in that order.

It's not bad, but its nowhere near as good as It Follows or Babadook. I'm right in the middle and so far it isn;t scary at all yet, just atmospheric. It also rehashes a lot of themes of Babadook, like incest and insanity. Hopefully the second half is killer because so far, don't believe the hype.

I just finished it. I loved Babadook and It Follows and ehard this touted as the next in that line of film.
While this movie works well as an arthouse film, it is not scary. It Follows was consistantly scary, and Babadook was disturbing and freaky from the get go (funny, too). This movie is a much slower build. The first 65 minutes are a drama, not horror. The final 20 minutes are pretty crazy, but not cool enough to make up for the first boring hour. Once things get crazy, it isn't actually scary, it's more like "thank god those boring parts are over and shit is happening at least". Parts that were supposed to be scary near the ending made me LOL instead. That is not good haha, I'm supposed to be scared, not chuckling like Beavis and Butthead.
The directing/cinematography are top notch, but all the fancy camera tricks in the world can't mask a dull script.

LOL I forgot OP was a snobby cunt and said no It Follows or Babadook discussion, I didn't mean to taint his thread with my "hipster" horror.

Yeah I liked Cabin in the Woods a lot too. However, Cabin in the Woods isn't a horror movie, it's a movie that deconstructs the horror genre while pretending to be a horror movie. Just go into it like you're gonna watch a horror comedy and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

That's my biggest problem with Cabin in the Woods: We spend half the movie with a horror plot that has zero suspense because it doesn't try to seriously build a horror film out of the satirical horror elements.

IMO it would have been more effective if they had the same opening teaser with the two bureaucrats and then progressed the horror plot more naturally, maybe teasing us showing gas coming out of a tube or a camera lens in a painting... until they reveal the monsters. Then pan out to the control room with the people taking bets on which monster they would activate, and then make the movie more about them until the stoner kid does his thing. Also ditch the whole save the world plot element altogether.

Finally watched Demons (1985) last night. Really enjoyable 80s Italian schlock horror. Fairly nonsensical plot, shitty dubbing, racism, and lots of fun gore. Would recommend especially for fans of Evil Dead; there are a few scenes that really capture the madness and pandemonium of freaky demon people running amok. Watch it with friends, there's some genuinely funny "Good Bad" movie moments, especially the ones involving bad dummy shots.

The Witch really was geat. It took balls to actually go with the goat legit being Satan, but I thought they really pulled it off. The scene where the boy died was chilling. imo The Witch deserves to be remembered alongside the likes of The Wicker Man and Rosemary's Baby.

I thought The Rite was ok. It sucked balls early on; the first half hour or so I thought it was one of the worst films I'd ever seen, but later on the atmosphere, the gore and the twist were interesting enough to just about salvage it.

Evil Dead was very good, but unfortunately still couldn't hold a candle to Evil Dead 2. Not that that's much of a criticism, it's absolutely worth watching.

I think the 2010s have had a handful of very good horror films, but not many that were great aside from The Witch. Aside from the ones you've mentioned, I'd also recommend Maniac and The Black Death as not-quite-great films that are worth checking out. Especially check out Black Death if you're a Game of Thrones fan.

And I saw an article saying Ash Vs Evil Dead season 2 will be allowed to incorporate parts of Army Of Darkness now, so that should be cool. I love the promise of them being more gory, because season 1 was already the most over-the-top shit on TV. It is what I wish the final season of Banshee was like.

Also, I want a Fued season about William Shatner Vs George Takei and Leonard Nemoy on the set of Star Trek.

And damn, Scream Queens teaser got me hyped. Time to rewatch season 1. I still don't know how this show is on a real channel and not Adult Swim. I hope they reference/make fun of Stranger Things.

Finally got around to It Follows.

Pretty good. Not scary at all, in fact I laughed a lot, especially at that tall dude in the hallway. Most of my admiration is for the style + atmosphere, very low maintainence. Characters were alright. I enjoyed the premise, I enjoy any movie in which our biology is the source of horror, but I don't think they did anything unique w/ the story. It had your basic tropes (namely the search for an 'expert') and predictable conclusions.

I wonder if there'll be a sequel, it certainly merits one, but should be careful paving over a series like Final Destination; If Jay returns as a battle-hardened expert w/ a plan to kill the first slut, count me out.

I thought the ending was more than you caught. The final scene was the two main characters being followed by it and knowingly committing suicide. They tried escaping and it didn;t work. Early on in the movie, one of the friends is reading from an e-book some passage from a book about how "if a wall was about to fall on you and you had no way of preventing it from hitting you, would you spend your final moments freaking out about it? Or just be calm and accept it?" This passage was foreshadowing the final scene, where they know the hooker is dead, know it is coming, but are done running.

Honestly one of the most boring, stupidest horror movies I've ever seen. It took me 3 nights to finish as I kept falling asleep. The only positives are the cinematography and the attractive lead who doesn't wear a bra. Everything else: hackish and poor.

Tim Curry's Pennywise looked like something you'd actually run into in the world.
Something that could easily approach a kid without the kid turning on his heel and running for his parents. I hope there's a "friendly version" of the new Pennywise because this just seems weird. As usual I have no hope for this being any good since 80s updates seem to go in the very wrong direction these days. Still, it's a Skarsgard in the role so I'm wondering how Floki's little brother will do.

In the tv movie I remember they dug up old documents indicating he'd been around in the 1800s. The book said there were disappearances in the area during the 1700s attributed to him. I didn't mind the costume too much. Early clown costumes are pretty varied and his generally fits some of the types. His performance in it will matter more to me. If he doesn't do a little Doug Jones alien-spidery body language I'll be disappointed. The voice? I dunno what the fuck kind of voice I want to hear because Timmy Curry did a fucking hell of a job getting his voice stuck in my head.

See that costume is much creepier, I think it has to do with being more baggy and ambiguous. What's scarier, John Wayne Gacy, or a teenager working at a haunted house?

The Invitation
I found this movie very entertaining. It has an interesting story & great cinematography. It's very well acted & was released in 2015. It's not a paranormal type of film but more physiological with some gore.

If you feel lacking in the horror movie department why not consider watching no commentary walkthroughs of some recent horror game releases if you haven't played them yourself already.
Soma - Takes place on a remote underwater research facility with machinery that begins to take on human characteristics. Like literal machine & body part combinations.
Among the Sleep- It's from the perspective of a toddler that roams around a surreal dreamscape with the help of a teddy bear trying to figure out what happened to your mother.
Until Dawn- Plays out like a teen creature feature.
Firewatch- A more slow burning psychological cinematic experience with some notes of conspiracy & horror in there.
The story of these games usually differ a bit depending on what the player chooses.
Honorable mention- Layers of fear

I think Shaun of the Dead is a pretty successful example of a recent-ish comedy horror. Or something old school like Phenomena. The cheese, music, & the monkey in that film are soo good.

Went to see Don't Breathe today. What a crazy ass horror flick but it was fucking good. That scene where the Blind Man was gonna inject his semen into Rocky with a turkey baster was some fucked up shit. Also whomever did the cinematography for the scene in the basement where Alex and Rocky couldn't see as well as that rottie trying to attack them was well shot. The one thing that did stick out was how both the blind man and the robbers were both bad people but in different ways depending on the perspective you take. One of the best horror films I've seen in recent memory.

Watched The Babadook with a friend tonight. My friend is really into horror of the supernatural kind and was pretty scared but I thought it sucked and didn't think it was really scary. I remember all the discussion about it but fuck that movie was some bullshit. Dunno why it's got a 98% on RT but like was The Babadook some figment of Amelia's imagination that she concocted after her husband's death but didn't know she wrote the book considering she said she used to be a children's author? Or maybe it's supposed to be ambigious. It was crazy no doubt especially that kid being a pain in the ass and Amelia being possessed but it just didn't do it for me. Maybe when it's a horror film with little to no gore at all, it just doesn't pull me in.

>Hellraiser II: Hellbound

I just found out that Clive Barker wrote a new Hellraiser novel for the first time since the original Hellbound Heart came out decades ago. But he is treating the 2nd and 3rd movies as canon for this book, and I only ever saw the first Hellraiser, so I'm watching 2 and 3 for homework before reading this book I bought, The Scarlet Gospels.

Man, this is movie is sick! In a good a=way, but still... 80s gore is so much grosser than modern gore IMO. Now they try to make it look so real that it looks fake, 80s stuff goes for the gross-out visual effects.

Also, it seems that I will never watch another 80s horror without spending half the time noticing tropes that Stranger Things used. The crazy girl (pic related) had all the tropes that El embodies, and it also takes you on a psychedelic trip to a terrifying other dimension. Clive Barker stuff kicks ass, too bad Stranger Things is too family friendly to touch most of his subject matter. Barker is so dark that he makes Stephen King books feel like uplifting Chicken Soup For The Soul.

Watched You're Next tonight. I liked this one enough especially for its brutality though I prefer Don't Breathe for its tension and atmosphere. I will say when Erin killed Felix with the blender was a sick kill but the twist that Felix and Crispian had orchestrated the plan of hiring those masked hitmen kill their family and have Erin be a witness to it all get a larger portion of the family inheritance was too elaborate and over the top and making it too obvious of Erin going final girl mode on all them lessened its emotional impact. However that ending of the officer getting killed by Erin's trap did make up for it.

I'm watching Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth. It is so fucking boring. The first two films were made in the 80s but this is 1992. 90s horror movies are such shit, nothing about these effects are scary. Hellraiser 2 wasn;t scary but the visuals were genuinely disturbing. This movie is doing nothing but boring me. I'm only 40 minutes deep, hopefully it picks up. It is probably the last Hellraiser film I will watch.

Why does the way to harm or kill the Leprechaun change in each movie?

I've always wanted to like horror but mostly I just end up bored. It's just so hard to get right for me. I hated It Follows but liked the claustrophobic terror of As Above So Below so I can't really figure out what I'm looking for in the genre. I just know it's not gore or some villain incessantly talking about "exquisite pain" like a goth kid. I watch a lot of horror just hoping to experience some interesting surreal visual entertainment. Can someone get Tarsem Singh to do a remake of Event Horizon?

What are you guys watching this October? I'm going to traumatize my kid tonight and have us watch the old TV adaption of IT. The scariest movie this kid has seen before is Poltergeist so this will be jumping in the deep end of horror. The fact that it was on TV made it so they cut all the sex and F-bombs out so it's the closest thing to an R rated film that kids can also enjoy.

In retrospect, they would be fun to watch with a friend + trashtalk. But I still hold them in low regard; I actually don't mind the dubbing or acting, it's always the plotholes that infuriate me.

I actually watched 'Alice, Sweet Alice' the other day, which I guess is considered the best American giallo film, and I really enjoyed it, precisely because it had a solid narrative.

Finished watching IT with the kid. They thought it was fun but weren't particularly scared. I think the part that freaked them out hardest was when Stan killed himself after getting the call that IT was back. i don't think my kid realized people could kill themselves until now. Same for the dad beating up his daughter, they never considered that a parent could be a source of violence. The real world shit was scarier than the clown stuff to them. Also, the fortune cookies full of eyes and bugs grossed them out.

Damn, I'm impressed with Channel Zero.

Tone is on point, acting solid for the most part. I was enjoying the writing until things started to rush in the 2nd half, consequently losing a layer of mystery too soon. Scare-wise... nothing that shocks, but some really creepy moments, including one that gave me goosebumps.

I sure enjoyed it more than this year's AHS, so maybe if you need a spooky show for October, this is it? It's decent, but far from being anything significant.

I just watched the series premiere of the new supernatural drama Falling Water. There's not a lot of horror elements to it but there's some weird supernatural shit in it but I figure I'd post here to let you guys know. Here's the premise of the show:

>Three strangers realize they are dreaming parts of the same dream. As they delve deeper into the meaning behind their connection to each other, they realize that the implications are much larger than their personal fates, and the future of the world lies in their hands.

I thought premiere was okay but the execution of is lacking as it threw it right in front of its audience without any buildup or character development for that matter to really get to know and understand Tess, Burton and Taka and how their dreams are interconnected. It just comes off as confusing most of the time really. People have been comparing it to Sense8 but the difference is thaf Sense8 engaged viewers from the first scene and took like four episodes to build its characters and premise before really diving deep into it. Falling Water just confuses without offering up a single reason about what's going on and spoonfeeding us about dreams and stuff without letting it build first. I'll probably give it one more episode.

It is such an arthouse film that it's biggest fans aren't actual horror fans. It drags cinemephiles into horror discussions and leaves me stuck hearing them talk about how shitty horror is and how It Follows and Babadook are the only good horror of the last decade. Shit grinds my gears. They can move that circlejerk to the Film General.

Both movies are trying so hard to be artsy that the plot falls apart by the end as the writers try to achieve some metaphor rather than have a satisfying explanation for all the films events. Artsy shit like that pisses me off. I don't mind artistic horror like the Hannibal TV show but these movies are just arthouse films with fanbases directly contradictory to the average horror movies fans. Hannibal at least made sense.

Horror fans react to 'It Follows':
>Wow, that it's it? No explanation for what 'it' was or why? Gay arthouse.

Horror fans react to Rob Zombie's 'Halloween':
>Wow, they gave Michael a backstory? What made the original scary was you didn't know who he was or why he was doing it! Gay remake.

It Follows spends a ton of time establishing the rules by which IT has to follow, then spends the rest of the movie contrinuously breaking and contradicting those rules in order to either make scenes scarier or to fit their metaphor/themes they are pushing. I'm too baked to name a ton of examples, but one would be how in the early scenes, the asshole BF asks the girl if she can see a girl standing in the back of the theater because he fears it is IT. It was a spooky scene initially, but later we learn that the way the thing operates, it never is just standing still somewhere staring, it is always coming right for you. The film is riddled with shit like this.

That's not a plot hole or contradiction, though. That's a character not having information that becomes clear later in the film. It'd be a contradiction if that girl actually was It, but all you just described is an example of the film's premise being effectively executed.

What are these metaphors and themes you think are being pushed at the film's expense?

Here's Quinten Tarantino making all the points I'm too lazy to spell out
>He [writer-director David Robert Mitchell] could have kept his mythology straight. He broke his mythology left, right, and center. We see how the bad guys are: They're never casual. They're never just hanging around. They've always got that one look, and they always just progressively move toward you. Yet in the movie theater, the guy thinks he sees the woman in the yellow dress, and the girl goes, “What woman?” Then he realizes that it's the follower. So he doesn't realize it's the follower upon just looking at her? She’s just standing in the doorway of the theater, smiling at him, and he doesn’t immediately notice her? You would think that he, of anybody, would know how to spot those things as soon as possible. We spotted them among the extras.
>The movie keeps on doing things like that, not holding on to the rules that it sets up. Like, okay, you can shoot the bad guys in the head, but that just works for ten seconds? Well, that doesn't make any fucking sense. What's up with that? And then, all of a sudden, the things are aggressive and they're picking up appliances and throwing them at people? Now they're strategizing? That's never been part of it before. I don't buy that the thing is getting clever when they lower him into the pool. They're not clever.
>Also, there’s the gorgeously handsome geeky boy — and everyone's supposed to be ignoring that he's gorgeous, because that’s what you do in movies — that kid obviously has no problem having sex with her and putting the thing on his trail. He's completely down with that idea. So wouldn't it have been a good idea for her to fuck that guy before she went into the pool, so then at least two people could see the thing? It’s not like she'd have been tricking him into it. It’s what I would've done.

The only rule of "It Follows" is that it follows; the notion that it just walks toward you endlessly is presumptive and clearly not the case. Rather than blaming the "mythology", did it ever occur that there was unreliable narrator? I know Tarantino never had this thought because he knows fuck all about writing.

I think Tarantino kind of missed the point. The film is often unclear whether you're actually seeing It or just a normal person who happens to be walking towards the protagonist. Uncertainty is the basis of the horror.

I've been watching a lot of horror this month to make up for not watching much at all over the past year or last October (I'm at 21 movies so far since the first) and as much as I love horror I don't expect to be scared or really affected by them anymore, which is why Dark Water surprised me so much. I don't believe in ghosts and wasn't scared by anything that actually happened in the movie, but the tone was so overbearing, just fucking creepy and spooky, it actually made me feel the same emotions as the main character "something's not right here" and at the time I was just impressed that it had such an effect on me.

then I got high before bed as usual, and everything got spooky as fuck. all I could feel was that overbearing tone again and the paranoia was off the charts, literally every sound was creeping me out and sending waves of thoughts that would give paranoid schizophrenics a run for their money through my head. I haven't had a high like that in ages, good shit Dark Water, good shit.

Watched 2 vastly different Vampire flicks. 'Dracula Untold' was pretty fucking lame, they made him out to be too much of a good guy. Then 'The Addiction', which was very well done; struggled to wrap my head around the philosophy a few times, but got the gist of it. It reminded me of a more recent film, 'A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night', simply because it delievered in ways the latter did not.

Halloween TV programming really fucking sucks this year... it gets worse every year tbh (AMC rerunning the entirety of The Walking Braindead again?!).

Watched a random b-movie, "Girl House", about a basement dweller who slaughters camgirls who called him ugly. Pretty decent slasher actually; some nudity, some gore, some cheese. The opening scene is Catwoman from Gotham humiliating the adolscent killer for having a baby dick and it's pretty funny.

Then I watched "Crimson Peak", reviews made me think it was going to be shit, but hot damn was it good. The plot is kinda cliche, Scooby Doo was doing this shit 16 years ago, but nonetheless I enjoyed just about evrything about it. CGI needed a bit more polish. Jessica Chastein blew me away.

Currently watching "The Innkeepers", a big favorite of mine. Builds suspense masterfully and really makes you care for the characters.

Just watched The Thing for the first time. Besides Kurt Russel's weird acting distracting me, it lived up to the hype. The practical effects are leagues ahead of any modern CGI shit. Maybe video gamers think CGI in film looks natural but I will never be of this mindset.

Also rewatched Halloween and House. Even if House is just a poor-man's Evil Dead 2, I still love it. OG Halloween has such a great atmosphere and spooky vibe.

Looking for cosmic horror films, or just horror films with some psychological or philosophical groundwork.

Explanation for cosmic horror, it's simply horror about the place of humanity in the cosmos. It's a kind of story where the only way to win is to be "blind" of the place of humanity in the cosmos.

Think about The Thing when the characters realise that The Thing can completely replace and replicate the entire biosphere on Earth in days or hours after leaving Antarctica (and the implied realisation that the universe might be filled with trillions of Things waiting to land on Earth).
Think about 1200AM when OH MY FUCKING GOD DID THAT JUST HAPPEN WHAT THE FUCK!?

I watched Housebound last night. It had a pretty ridiculous plot but I liked how the movie's comedy was done in still maintaining a dramatic tone in the film but it wasn't really as over the top with that aspect. I did find it pretty funny how Amos, the security guy keeping watch over Kylie, just so happens to have all that paranormal equipment lying around.

The OG Cabin Fever is one of the greatest horror movies ever, IMO. It's grounded in reality, as in what we witness on screen could actually happen. The characters are realistic and relatable, it actually feels like they're friends, as opposed to a representatige from every high school clique. Just a great movie, I love Eli Roth. Green Inferno kinda sucked but everything else is great.

A horror movie with a satirical premise written and directed by Jordan Peele has potential to either be really good or really bad. Guess we'll find out. I do like Daniel Kaluuya and having a black protagonist in a horror film is something different that we don't usually see that often. I can't recall any horror films off the top with one aside from Scary Movie I guess.

As each expedition encountering the Thing "kills" the Thing and themselves, they move the Thing closer and closer to civilization, until it is free in non-arctic conditions and humanity is pretty much extinct.

The Thing is a part of Carpenter's apocalypse trilogy. ALL the films in it are about the extinction of mankind.

Well given that it has a 100% on RT with almost 100 critics reviewed, looks like an early film of the year candidate. Imma go see it this weekend.

But critics always give racially themed movies overly positive reviews, I'll wait for the fan reviews to come in.

Maybe on the wider internet but rarely with 420chan fan reviews. I want to know if a movie is good with a bong and beers, not if it is a movie you can brag about watching to appear racial sensitive or cultured or some bullshit

Well I plan on watching it, just because I expect there will me many keks to be had. I mean, the scene in the trailer where he goes to fistbump that one stepford-ed black guy, and the guy grabs his fist like its a handshake with thr music changing and a look of utter horror upon the black protags face...fucking hilarious. Seriously. I'm not sure if Peel is self aware enough to be doing this intentionally. Might be. Idk. I don't really follow him, but I'll be giving his film a solid and dedicated chance. Going in as blind as possible.

It wasn't *that* bad. It was just mediocre imo. I think everyone's getting their panties in a twist because it was heavily marketed on the all female directors gimmick, which admittedly is a little obnoxious. Looking at it objectively I found it to be in line with like 90% of horror out there. Just ok.

It was mostly garbage. I was actually excited about the all-female cast thing, I went into it thinking "Women don't get to touch horror often, this should be good."

3/4ths wasn't even original. The first story was an adaptation of a short story written by a man, the second story was Weekend at Bernie's, the fourth story was Rosemary's Baby 18 years later. So, already there is a massive deficit of originality here, you'd think a movie billed as "female-led" wouldn't take cues from a bunch of men, and yet hat's exactly what happens.

The 2nd story was by far the worst, and surprise, the director was that shitty musician who had no film experience. That shit was the stupidest fucking 15 minutes of my life. There was nothing redeemable about it.

The best story was the 3rd. Characters were funny and relatable, premise wasn't really original but it was fun, neat special effects and kinda spooky.

The 4th one wasn't too bad, kinda funny actually, but just... Meh.

1st one was stupid. I know what they were going for it, it's not scary; characters were terrible, why the mom is such a cunt in the beginning is a mystery to me. They went out of their way to make her a terrible person, only to do a 180° for no reason.


I'm glad I only paid 99¢ for this shit, but at the same time, now I'm mad that I wasted my 99¢ coupon on this garbage, I coulda watched La La Land.

Horror anthologies are just shit, tbh. V/H/S was a fluke.

Don't remind me.

I still remember people complaining about Prometheus turning the Xenomorph into some mysterious thing without explanations, instead of the simple space bugs from post-Aliens.

What's the problem with Ridley Scott turning the Xenomorph into some unknown entity? That's how they started in Alien before that cocksucking hack James Cameron ruined everything!

Most of what I heard of prometheus was critical of its characters and plot. I haven't seen it (well, I did, but fucked up with a bunch of other drunks so I only really got the jist). Could you expand on how it differed with the Alien movies with regards to the Xenomorphs?

In Alien the Xenomorph is some unknown entity. Mysterious.

Then Aliens hits, and James Cameron turns the Xenomorph into space-ants. All mystery is gone. They're now just space animals. Space animals that are killed by the dozens, while it took an entire space ship crew to kill just one Xenomorph in Alien.

Aliens was such a disappointment to me, that I haven't watched any other Alien film except Prometheus. So I dunno about the rest. I hear Alien 3 goes back to the "one alien kills a lot of people" idea, but I haven't seen it so yeah.

Aliens is a flawless action-scifi movie, but as an Alien sequel it FUCKING SUCKS SHITDICK.

I liked Alien. It sits proudly next to Hellraiser among films that fucked me up as a child. Aliens was cool, because it was never more than a space bug imo. It never showed high forethought. It always behaved like a stalking, predatory, animal (Spider/Lizard/Cat). I consumed the comics like a motherfucker. Aliens, Predators, Colonial Marines, shit was awesome. Massive hives bigger than human cities, armies of Xenomorphs, FLYING XENOS BRO, Hulk Xenos, Xeno-Zip (Weyland Yutani synthesized Xeno Royal Jelly and it fucks humans up and turns them into berserkers who don't feel pain and have super strength...also they go insane and kill everyone they see), Yautja, Machiko, Trained Xenos (They always betray as soon as they know they can), Clan Wars, Holy shit dude you are missing out on the mythology of this world if all you do is pout because a few of your bugs got killed in the sequel. News Flash, Xenos are bioweapons (Prometheus is fuck-shit and it doesn't retconn shit it can suck a fuck and fuck off forever.) made by an alien race (might be space jokeys, might not) to be a perfect bio-weapon, able to adapt its form based on its target species so as to best preform in the target species environment.

I think it's a little unfair to criticize the sequel for giving some insight the way Aliens does it.

There are still a lot of mysteries, I don't really see how showing them living in hives with a queen suddenly evaporates all of the intrigue, especially considering how it's still an incredibly bizarre lifecycle and we have no idea what sort of environment produced such a ruthlessly effective organism. If anything it adds depth while still begging more questions.

I was asking more about Prometheus.

As Aliens not being a satisfying sequel to Alien. I can see not liking the shift from a suspenseful, almost "slasher"-movie, horror vibe to boom-kapow action in a creepy setting.

Alien 3 does indeed try to return to basics, but it's execution is really flawed. If you're a horror buff though, it presents an interesting specimen for how it tries to adapt to changes in the genre. Not a bad movie, but it's not the sequel people were looking for, and it's in general a bit shoddy IMO

it makes sense in universe. the moment weyland yutani found out about this shit after the first movie, obviously they were going to try and find more of them for military purposes. and the spaceship crew of the first movie weren't trained soldiers, they weren't given prior tactical information about the threat, they didn't have the best weapons, and they couldn't have used them if they had them due to being in a space ship rather than an on-planet colony. the marines probably would have been only slightly less fucked than the crew if they were thrown in the first movie's situation. if they tried that rambo shit they would breach the hull. the only equipment they had that would work in that situation would be a flamethrower which the ship's crew already had and used as well as they could. though actual military training would have helped obviously.

thematically and tonally though, you're right, it doesn't match up to the first movie at all in those regards.

I've never understood the "true horror is the unknown!!!" mentality. It's a very prevalent attitude amongst people, and it's never appealed to me. I'm the inquisitive type who likes to know the 5 W's — who, what, when, where, why.

I liked it when Rob Zombie gave Michael Myer's a back story, because it made the character more realistic and tangible. I like that they're giving the Xenomorphs a backstory, because it opens a whole deeper aspect of horror.

If it were revealed that the Engineers created the Xenomorphs and wanted to use them to exterminate humanity, that's a far scarier concept to me then "here is a scary alien, we don't know why it exists but here it is, BOO!"

I like stories where we humans create their own monsters. It's not enough for there to be a scary monster — knowing that we're responsible for it makes it even scarier.

You can look at someone like Michael Myers and say he's scary, but he's scarier once you learn that he's the product of poverty, bullying, a lack of mental health care, etc. People like him spring up every day in the real world. Just the other day some retard went on a killing spree in Germany.

An effective use of both is best I think. I always liked the way horror games did it, initially everything was absolutely mysterious but over time you would find documents and recordings explaining how things came to get to this point, or at least hint at how, and when done right unveiling things just made it all the more frightening. Silent Hill and System Shock were both great at that.

You ever play Alan Wake? It did that really well in my opinion. You'd find manuscripts written by the main character (Alan, a horror author) scattered throughout the levels that would foreshadow what you're about to run into as the player, only Alan has no memory of writing the story, only that it is now the reality he faces.
Also, it's split into episodic chapters that end in cliffhangers and start with a "previously on..." which frame it as this really cool horror show.

Goddamn, I need to play through that game again.

I disagree on Myers, he was a lot scarier as a boogeyman in the original Halloween. Zombie's take was better than most of the sequels especially all that magic cult bs, but nothing beats that original.

also, that idea of unexplained horror being scarier comes from the fact that the less we know, the more we can project. and generally, what we can imagine is scarier than what anyone can actually come up with, because it's personal. when everything is laid out for you it's a lot harder to actually be scary.

As soon as you know the monster is the ghost of the previous home owner, as soon as you know that the murders are caused by a vampire, as soon as you know that the horror is some kind of space ant, you can formulate a strategy to fight the horror.

At that point, the horror film stops being a horror film and just becomes an action movie with a scary villain.

As long as the scary thing remains unknown, the longer the film stays scary.
