  1. While I definitely enjoy Creepshow a hell of a lot more, C2 is very enjoyable. I wish there were more than 3 stories and I didn't quite care for the animated sections. Wish those were live action. That always bothered me. The Raft is exceptional. My favorite though has always been The Hitchhiker. I am hesitantly looking forward to Nicotero's TV reboot, but am not hopeful. Creepshow 3 is pure garbage.
  2. Don't forget Veronica Cartwright. Besides when she couldn't control herself from vomiting cherry pits, this was my favorite role of hers.
  3. FINALLY finished Haunting of Hill House SPOILERS I was sold right from the moment it started. I thought it did a great job with the flashbacks, and the scares were great. Mike Flanigan is quickly going up the ladder of one of my favorite horror directors. He gets the scares just right. I have actually watch the series twice, the first time I didn't pay much attention to what was going on in the dead space of the foreground/background besides the actors and and the action taking place but it is his brilliance to put some of the ghosts in absolute plain site, but purposefully difficult to see. This was the first one I saw and it made my blood run cold.... And how this show got the mood just right. For a horror show, it hit the emotional buttons of mine. I found my self openly weeping at moments in it. Especially the episode "The Break Neck Lady". And I can't put enough praise on the episode "Two Storms" that pulled a "Lumet" and including very very little cuts, long takes. Love those. Also been going back and re-watching: I just love this series so much. So deliciously dark and twisted! I am in the small group of people that loved Bandersnatch. Although I didn't really care for it at first, when it got to the meta moment of you letting Stefan know that you were watching from Netflix and that he was not in control... was brilliant in my opinon. I adore Black Mirror so much. Although not every episode is great. My standouts are The Entire History of You Be Right Back White Bear White Christmas (prob my fav one) Nosedive San Junipero USS Callister (what a sociopath he was) Hang the DJ (a beauitful episode) and Black Museum However what I have been watching/binging a lot lately of Inside No. 9 This is another anthology TV show much like Black Mirror, Twilight Zone, etc.... The gimmick is that each episode takes place in the confines of 'something' that includes the number 9 in it. So, an address 9 blahblah St, Apt 9, Train car #9, etc.... Each episode stars the same two people (shown above) in different roles. They touch on every genre. Some episodes are really funny, some are incredibly sad, some are super spooky, and some are scary. Every episode comes with two twists. One that can kinda be guessed, but then there is one that comes out of nowhere. While not every episode is golden, there are some that are so wonderfully done that I have seen them several times. Stand out episodes with this are: Sardines A Quiet Night In Tom and Gerri La Couchette 12 Days of Christine Cold Comfort Devil of Christmas The Bill Riddle of the Sphinx Diddle DIddle Dumpling Tempting Fate To Have and to Hold and the ABSOLUTE INGENIUS Halloween special which had the UK up in arms and the twitterverse exploding. Dead Line All are avail on Netflix, except in the US where Inside No. 9 is not avail (It is avail on Amazon Prime with a Britbox Subscription) or those who use Netflix on the computer and have a VPN, it is avail if you are in a UK server.
  4. Saw several movies over the weekend. Die Tur (The Door) Terrible poster, but a ridiculously fun movie. Interesting twist on a time-bending formula. Noises Off The theater company I am working with is putting this show on, opens Friday, and watching tech and rehearsals made me want to go back and watch this comical farce. What a cast! Caine, Burnett, Hagerty, Henner, Ritter, Reeve!!! Produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall! This play-within-a-play is a riot. The play is better, and this drags on a bit and looses some steam in the third act, but a really funny funny movie Deathtrap Because one story about a playwriter that stars Christopher Reeve and Michael Caine isn't enough, there's another! Brilliantly casted, and wonderfully scripted twisting thriller directed by Lumet. The cinematography in this is masterful, as is with most of Lumet's films. Long sweeping takes with very, very, little cuts. I love this deviously wicked movie.
  5. Everything up there. My expectations of this were extremely hopeful, but very cautious due to the history of King adaptations. But this. Did. Not. Disappoint. Very well done, extremely well acted. Very much so looking forward to the next one, which I hope will get fast tracked. I liked it so much I saw it Thursday night, Yest, and have tickets to see it with good friends (who are driving over an hour to see it in Dolby Cinema) tomorrow. Second time around, still was unnerved by Pennywise. Parts still frightened me. And it was still exciting. I can't imagine me watching it in the theater anymore than 3 though.
  6. Big Bad Wolves - Frank Iilfman Taken from the intertubes: A cop (Lior Ashkenazi) and a vengeful father (Tzahi Grad) torture a teacher (Rotem Keinan) whom they believe was involved in several killings, including that of a little girl. This is a revenge thriller, as if mixed with the Coen Bros and Quentin Tarantino, who actually called it his fav. film of 2014. Very brutal. With an ending that gut punches you.
  7. Seeing this tomorrow at a Dolby Cinema. Looking forward to it!
  8. I didn't see the remake, so my opinion is based off of the orig. I'll update this list as I see em. Maybe make my own thread. Yup. I did exactally the same thing. I missed it in the theater and pre-ordered it on iTunes. So there it sits, mocking me, for eternity, Or until we lose the electric grid, then it'll be gone for eternity.
  9. I left "The Witch" off because, I didn't really care for it. I understood what it was trying to do, and the creep factor was there..... but it just didn't win me over. They are all, except for the obvious documentary and horror/comedy, in the horror category. Even 10 Cloverfield Lane is considered horror, when it is more thriller/sci fi. I loved The House of the Devil. He nailed the 1980 look and feel of a slasher film, which made me very nostalgic. And I would agree with you about [REC] but the request was for recent horror films. It can be considered found footage, but out of the ones we have gotten lately, it was very well done and exceptionaly creepy in parts. The Invitation was one of my favorite films last year!
  10. This is one of the biggest "Love it/Hate it" genres. What one finds fantastic and scary, someone else hated it. Here are some of the recent ones that I have seen that I fully enjoyed. A * means it is foreign and subtitled. Don't let that stear you away, those were fantastic. Bleeding House Get Out I Saw the Devil* House of the Devil Trick R Treat Tales of Halloween The Invitation Kill List* Don't Breathe Hush 10 Cloverfield Lane Train to Busan* Autopsy of Jane Doe The Void The Belko Experiement We Are Still Here Green Room Definately Conjuring and Conjuring 2 The Nightmare (Sleep paralysis documentary) The Blackout Experiments (documentary on one of the most intense haunted houses) The Houses that October Built Krampus The Gift Baskin* Grave Encounters Creep What We Do In The Shadows Digging Up The Marrow Lake Bodum
