There's been some discussion about it in the movie thread.
The Hunt (Craig Zobel) • forum.chorus.fm
Ah didn’t know there was a thread
The worms have so eaten these geniuses' brains that they missed the part where the hunted deplorable people kick a bunch of elite ass
There were actually a lot of cool scenes. Him walking through the glass door was a top one for me.
I totally got The Hunt confused with Ready or Not
Saw Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark last night. I was entertained.
Reminded me of the Goosebumps movies and Are You Afraid Of The Dark? series.
I’ll echo what everyone else is saying: Scary Stories was a lotta fun.
It actually might be my favorite horror sequel ever? I think it's just as effective as the original for completely different reasons
And yeah, add me to the Scary Stories was a lot of fun camp
Yeah, I liked Scary Stories a lot. Makes me want to order the books and read em again. It’s been a million years.
Scream Factory Details September’s Blu-ray Release of John Carpenter’s ‘Vampires’ haven't seen this is years, but cool art, think I only have it on dvd so I may upgrade
I finished Typewriter on Netflix. It’s 6 episodes and was pretty interesting. I’ve never seen any Indian tv/films, but I enjoyed this. The last two episodes were especially good and the ending planted some plot lines for season 2. I recommend it for fans of American Horror Story.
Too much free time today, so I also just finished Halloween 4. I actually really liked this. The mask looked silly, but also kinda creepy. Apparently Michael is superhuman now. The last 30 minutes was such a wild ride. I could kinda see the last scene coming when Jamie bought the clown costume. I’m curious if part 5 will have her be the killer now. I’ll try to watch tomorrow.
Regarding the superhuman part
IIRC from reading the novelization of the first movie, Michael was part of a Celtic curse put upon him where he had a kill a family member and was the latest in a string of curses across centuries. This was omitted in Carpenter’s original film. They finally explore this in part 5
Haha this is wild. I’m looking forward to 5 now.
I enjoyed Scary Stories. Not as much as It (2017) and Child's Play (2019), though. I knew what I was getting myself into, but I was so not okay with the Red Spot scene.
From the poster for Them That Follow I thought it was a horror movie; I'm glad I read about it beforehand. Still a very distressing film.
Maybe not my greatest idea for a double-header.
Watched Halloween 2018 again last night. Still haven't watched all of them so far, but I really love that one and it's easily my second favourite so far.
Also watched the first Zombie one. Saw it years ago but barely remembered it. It was ok. My main criticism is that it really fails to be tense at all.
Just watched Halloween 5. What was up with all the times it made you think Michael was coming to get someone, but it was really a teenager trying to give someone a fright? And I’m guessing the ending is hinting at the whole cult thing I’m hearing about. I kinda like that 1 and 2 is like one big movie and 4, 5, and 6 is it’s own trilogy. At least, it seems like it so far.
Yeah, for a modern reboot or “late sequel” of a classic horror series, the 2018 film is fantastic. I plan on buying it soon.
Yeah, The Curse is where they actually divulge into the details of the cult behind Michael's drive to kill and superhuman ability. Personally, I think it takes away from the scary aspect of a kid who killed his parents, never spoke again, and then did it again as an adult escaped mental patient. Paul Rudd is fun to watch though, and RIP to Don who would pass away after 6 filmed.
Finally got around to watching Final Destination 5, and I liked it! I knew about the ending from reading this thread or hearing from somewhere else idr, but it was still cool. The gymnastics scene makes no physical sense to me and some of the 3D stuff is laughable, but overall I really enjoyed it.
Has anyone seen Love Witch? I was looking through a list of top horror films and that one caught my eye. Does it lean in on the horror side? Thinking of giving it a go tonight.
Not really horror, it’s like an arthouse homage/throwback to old cult/B movies with a kind of giallo feel? Been a while since I’ve seen it, don’t think it ever really tries to be scary but if I remember correctly there is some violence and suspense.
It’s incredible though
Thanks! I'll definitely be checking it out. I'm just not sure it'll be up my girlfriends alley. I'm trying to steer away from the Netflix horror stuff she usually puts on.
Oh god Zombie 2 Halloween... Is it this bad the whole way through?
