  1. Unfortunately, New Nightmare didn't really do it for me. Appreciated the originality, but it didn't really feel like a Nightmare film, and I know that's the point, but...twoish on-screen kills in just under two hours? Idk. The child acting and new Freddy design didn't help, although Langenkamp was great (as always). Just kind of boring compared to the worse (read: more fun) sequels.

    On the flip side of the coin, Antibirth was NUTS. I went from kind of hating it to kind of loving it in 90 minutes. Very messy, both narratively and literally. I don't know if that constitutes a recommendation, but it's an experience. It's like Eraserhead directed by Harmony Korine.

    damn I adore Freddy's design in New Nightmare, he looks genuinely disturbing. love that whole movie though

    also just watched Possessor, it slapped. that fucking ending

    Yeah, New Nightmare was the only time where Freddy was actually somewhat scary to me. Loved the look in that one. Feel like the film would be extremely well received if it were done now.

    New Nightmare’s always felt like a made-for-television movie to me, I don’t know why but even watching it a couple weeks back I had the same reaction. I actually said that to Howard and he laughed & told me I might be onto something lol. I’ve always hated the Freddy look, however, and Howard also said it’s not his favorite - that he’s too waxy looking and the leather pants bit is definitely a product of its time lol.

    Tonight I’m participating in a watch along for Friday the 13 Part VI with director Tom McLoughlin & Tom Fridley (who plays Cort, also happens to be John Travolta’s nephew so I’m definitely gonna be asking about that lmao). Gonna be another fun one!

  8. Yeah it was more so the wardrobe re: New Nightmare that really got me. The coat is a weird touch lol.

    Scream Factory shipment came in, so I'm trying to execute two triple features this weekend, John Carpenter (They Live/The Thing/The Fog) and Dario Argento (Inferno/Tenebrae/Phenomena).
     
  9. Excited to hear your thoughts on Antebellum! I know it's been really hit or miss for folks, but now that it's only $5.99, I've been meaning to rent it as well.

    ended up watching two witchy films tonight, not even deliberately. The Wretched was solid enough if pretty pedestrian. the third-act twist elevated it a bit, but honestly I liked the weird teen comedy a lot more than the horror haha

    His House on the other hand is one of the best films I've seen this year and one of the best debuts I've seen in... longer than I can clearly remember. absolutely incredible film

    The first Urban Legends movie still holds up. I love this cast.

    Lol at a time when Jared Leto was considered a potentially great, up and coming actor and not an insane narcissistic abuser. Forgot he was in that until I just googled.

    last time I saw it I remember my eyes rolling really hard at the cheesy “twin brother” trope.
