Something tells me it's a Film Noir ...

Fans of A24 horror films will be pleased with their new "elevated horror" movie: the Icelandic thriller Lamb. 

 

 

It's already in the North American theaters.

I group Scream in with Jaws, Halloween, and The Mummy '99 (there are more obviously): essentially perfect movies that had severe drops in quality going into sequels and never figured out how to make one that even approached the original.

Scream 2 is a completely worthy sequel to the original!  In some ways, it's better than the first one


Scream 3 was lame though, indeed, and I never saw 4

Not in any universe.  Scream 2 was terrible, reminded me of how awful Friday the 13th part 2 and Nightmare 2 were. Scream 3 was a slight improvement 4 was much better but all three sequels were smoke 10 minutes after leaving the theatre

I'm really looking forward to this. I love the story and I love the cast.

 

Nice, I've been eagerly awaiting this for a while. Looking forward to Newman's score too.

I think I'll stick with THE MAN WHO NEVER WAS.

 

Solid film. But it was made 65 years ago. It's certainly a story that can be re-told.

 

Although I have no idea why they've never made a movie about the magicians and special effects people who faked out the Germans with fake armies and such.

Deny all you want its existence is reality.

 

Sorry Jay but I don't read threads about John Denby

New horror movie from the director of Sinister and Doctor Strange:

 

 

Seems ok, although it was clearly inspired by 2017's It and Stranger Things. That said, Sinister is one of my favorite horror movies from the last decade so I expect good things from this one.

First track released from Jonny Greenwood's upcoming Spencer score, which along with Kristen Stewart's performance was the focus of a lot of festival buzz surrounding this film. I like it!

 Ridley Scott's The Last Duel is flopping big time. Global box-office for the first week is only $10 million. Like Joe, people just prefer to watch the umpteenth Halloween movie. Does 'cinema' actually deserve to live on?

The biggest problem with this one was its release date. It's an adult movie, and this demographic already has another options, namely Bond and Halloween. Had they released it in another day it might have been a minor hit.

Aren't horror movies something more for teens? It's the reason why so many of them are feature teens.

Depends of the movie. In Halloween's case, I think the audience that it's targeting is the older people who were teens when the previous Halloween movies came out.

 

And, according to Box Office Pro, over the half of the people who watched Halloween Kills in theaters last weekend was over the age of 25:

 

Quote

Age-wise, 56% of the audience was over the age of 25 while 27% was over the age of 35, meaning the film skewed significantly older than Venom: Let There Be Carnage (whose own debut audience was 45% over age 25).

That throws Alex ridiculous comments aside. Horror movies are for everyone. But I think anyone who gets out and about in the real world realizes that.

Everyone who, like you, stopped developing at the age of 14. :P

 

Of course, there are also horror movies for a more adult audience, but you don't like those.

Thats because they are the worst things a horror film can be. Boring and not frightening. 

You don't know horror.

I've heard very conflicting reviews about Last Duel. Some people I've heard thought it was amazing. Others thought it was the worst piece of crap they ever saw. (Clearly they never saw Kids.)

 Some say The Last Duel features the best sword fights ever, not in a Marvel way, but in a realistic way. I want to compare it to The Duellists which is known for the exact same reason. Other than that, while The Duellists is a truly amazing looking film (from a time when Ridley Scott was still under the spell of Stanley Kubrick), I have yet to see a beautiful frame from The Last Duel

I was initially interested in The Last Duel, but must admit that after hearing it's pretty much about 'toxic masculinity' I thought 'Oh FFS, not ANOTHER bloody lecture!'. So I dunno.

I haven't seen it myself. But I hear that thway the script works is interesting. I read in an interview that the movie is basicly 3 parts. One from Matt Damon's characters perspective, one from Adam Driver's characters perspective and the last one from Jodie Comer's characters perspective.

I'm quite interested to see it. But this is one of the films I might wait for to go on streaming

Apparently the movie will be inspired by Uncharted 3 and 4. In any case, it looks really goofy and silly.
