    Yeah The Invisible Man was great. Loved how the camera work/cinematography really made the dread in the beginning. Just the creepy still shots on weird corners of the house was a nice touch. Also saw one of the twists coming, but still was surprised when it happened. Really hope Blumhouse is in charge of other “classic” monster movie remakes.

    An inconsequential shift as the continents drift.

    found a rare Army of Darkness director's cut DVD! pretty sure it only exists through Japanese MGM but plays on Australian DVD players so I'm super fucking lucky

    man I love this movie. the ultimate argument for style over substance

    Watched Wishmaster and had a blast. Loved the practical effects a lot. CG was a bit dated, but honestly just added to the late 90's charm of it. Probably going to make it a double feature and watch the 2nd now.

    Wishmaster 2 was fun, but not nearly as fun as the first.

    As far as fun sequels go though, I finally watched Texas Chainsaw Part 2, holy shit. Maybe this is a hot take? but I think I might like this more than the original?

    There are two Arrow releases for Vamp, the European release and then there was a US release for it as well. I’ve got the North American Arrow disc

    I fully agree on Chainsaw. The original is arguably the better film, but 2 is far more enjoyable.

    Oh 100%. I'd never argue that TCM is better 2 is just insane and off the wall.

    I feel Part lll never gets the love or attention for its “back to basics” approach. While the new family (or any for that matter) will never be the Sawyer Family, I think the one included in “Leatherface” stand alone just well. I mean, it gave us Viggo Mortensen in one of his more insane roles

    I liked it the first time, but just rewatched Doctor Sleep and it hit way harder this time (maybe it’s because it was the directors cut) — love it now.

  18. I actually love how batshit crazy The Next Generation is, too. Not my favorite franchise, but definitely solid

    I wish more of the TCM movies were streaming. I've now only seen the original, part 2 and 3D from 2013.

    Idle Hands time. The opening credits/scene are a total misdirect from what the rest of the movie is, haha. Used to scare me so much as a kid

    I understand exactly what you mean by this, but while I can get behind that particular trope being flimsy in this case, it was still effective to me and provided enough for me to allow it to carry Harper's motivations. The childhood trauma was supposed to be comparable to a haunted house (I believe Harper even says she grew up in one) so her motivation is mainly born out of escaping a new haunted house instead of the abusive one she was used to. That was how I took it anyway.

    Did From Beyond for the first time this morning. Wowee it makes so much sense that Brian Yuzna went on to do Society after seeing this. I assume his fingerprints are all over a lot of the creature design here. So much wetness.
