    The Final Chapter is great. Crispin Glover is great.

    Oh man. The video rental place I grew up with, Film Fest, is closing, which is a goddamn shame, but I took a little day trip out to say goodbye and pick up a handful of the movies I used to rent (or always meant to). Wound up spending $60. There are a few more, but these were my horror picks:

    - The Crow
    - Bad Milo!
    - The Bay
    - A Cure for Wellness
    - Gretel & Hansel (never seen)
    - Kalifornia (never seen)
    - Maniac (2012) (never seen)
    - Prophecy (never seen)
    - Ready or Not
    - Return to Nuke 'Em High, Volume One
    - Thirteen Ghosts
    - The Tripper
    - Vacancy
    - V/H/S 2
    - V/H/S Viral

    I thought Alone was well done especially the scenes in the rain and forest, incredibly grounded and believable. Small cast really works, appreciate the dr. Chilton appearance too. Solid overall

    A shame for your store as ours recently closed as well. Such a good haul for that price!

  6. Tried watching The Shrine last night, but it felt more like a softcore porn film than something done professionally lol

    Watched FREAKY last night and had a fun time. The kills were shockingly gruesome, but the script was very meh.

    I recommend a stream one day
     
  8. Bad Hair is a lot of fun. Usher is everything.

    The Room (2019) falls in that awful range of neither so-bad-Its-fun or so-bad-its-entertaining horror movies, just felt nothing at all. I am pretty good at sticking it out even if I'm hating a movie, this just sucked all around

  11. Watched the CM Punk movie, Girl on the Third Floor. Punk was terrible, but I enjoyed it overall.

    we've seen the shadow of the axe before Prestigious

    Yeah he was awful, but the film was decent enough.

    Can we get a list of Thanksgiving-themed horror going? I know there's probably a lot more out there than I realize.

    Thankskilling
    Blood Rage (thanks to the last drive-in)
    Pilgrim

    that's all I got.

    I just read the story about 'Megan is Missing' - I couldnt find a discussion about this, but I just read the plotline.... Yikes!

    I don't like the way the story sounded. I can see why there is news about it.

  15. Watch Southbound on Hulu last night. A fun little anthology.

  16. Watched Await Further Instructions. It's pretty on-the-nose with its themes, but I thought it was effective nonetheless and enjoyed it.

    I hate that the Netflix thumbnail shows a frame from the final act. Would've been nice to go into the movie without already knowing that visual was coming.
     
  17. Honestly surprised at the poor reception to Prophecy (1979), it's not perfect but I loved it. Of all the hats it wears -- social commentary, environmental commentary -- monster movie might be the thing it does worst. The bear costume is pretty bad, BUT there are some wild kills, and the parental anxiety and tension between the Native people and lumberjacks feels extremely genuine and gripping.

    Reminded me of Humanoids From the Deep in some ways; would love a shot at rewriting the material.

    Edit: and I wasn’t sure from Kevin’s post, but the second photo posted definitely confirms that’s Stu’s house from the first movie.

     
  19. I keep saying this, but it's really about time I watch the sequels. I think I remember most of two, might skip to three and four (which I have next to zero recollection of aside from enjoying them).

    Also that varsity bomber the guy on the porch is wearing is the same one Steve from the beginning of the first movie is wearing. So now I’m really confused as to what this movie is doing but also excited.
     
  24. I still feel relatively confident knowing the writer and directors involved. Excited!

    Kind of hate that there’s no subtitle. Even Scream 5 would have been alright. Also isn’t it a sequel to Scream 4?
