And when I'm all alone I feel I don't wanna hide
I rewatched A Nightmare on Elm Street for Halloween, and I still maintain it to be an impeccably crafted work. I know the sequels are absurd - and I know the franchise has a similar reputation - but I think it is easy to forget just how atmospheric and scary the film is.

I agree. I love the way it was filmed. Very dark and gritty. The music, too. The only film that had a great score. Very evil sounding. If they had stopped here, this film would be undisputed today instead of being the forgotten seed of the franchise, which is awful.

That's why I voted for it in a poll of 80's movies.



Welcome to the human race...
Addams Family. 7.5/10
Casting was spot-on for Gomez, Fester, Pugsley and Granny.
Didn't care for Anjelica Huston as Morticia, or the guy who played Lurch.
Christina Ricci was amazing as Wednesday Addams, better than the original (but given more of a role, too).
A fun, irreverent break from these PC times.
lmao what the villains/targets in these movies are exactly the kind of people that would complain about "PC culture" (as seen in the Thanksgiving play subplot in the second movie) hell isn't the whole point of the Addams Family is that their weirdness isn't just surface-level edginess but actually an emotionally healthy defiance of the fundamentally toxic aspects of the "normal" American monoculture

Halloween II -


oh to live in the universe where every installment of this franchise was some Season of the Witch-style standalone adventure instead of...whatever this is

Hellloooo Cindy - Scary Movie (2000)
The autopsy of Jane Doe (2016)

Genuinely creepy, tense and frightening.........her body is frightening. Somethings lacking which was apparent during the last third. Seems undercooked. Just unable to transcend to the A grade of horror films but there was potential.

7/10



Doctor Hackenstein:



For a bad movie, it was pretty good. I would say about a 6 out of 10. It was fun and bad in equal amounts.

Yup.



Welcome to the human race...
not sure what that has to do with defying PC culture but whatever I guess

The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017)


If you're familiar with Lanthimos' work that you'll know what to expect because that is exactly what is delivered. This is a great movie with really disturbing performances and a phenomenal score so I would recommend watching on a big screen if you can. There are several funny moments, although not too many, but these are mostly very dark, even to the point of making you feel bad for laughing. The cinematography is also very impressive, with some really well shot scenes.


I will warn that it is quite an uncomfortable sitting and things do get awkward and very tense. What the director achieves is being able to keep you hooked throughout despite some slow pacing at times.


Lastly, I have to mention Barry Keoghan, who will certainly go on to be an absolute star. His performance was particularly creepy, especially the spaghetti eating scene (not to be compared with A Ghost Story pie eating scene) which left you wanting to but unable to look away.


This psychological drama will no doubt divide opinions but for me it was a brilliant cinematic experience.

Sorry Harmonica.......I got to stay here.

We watched this on Neflix last night, and were pleasantly surprised. Frank Grillo turned in a strong performance in this crime thriller written and directed by Jeremy Rush.

It's a low budget production which nevertheless is high on suspense, tension, and a fairly complex plot. The film's setting --mostly in Wheelman's car-- put me in mind of 2013's Locke, starring Tom Hardy-- another film whose action was primarily in an automobile.

At 82 minutes, it doesn't get long in the tooth, and had a satisfying ending.

Doc's rating: 7/10
I passed this over on Netflix, but you got me interested, I'll give it a watch thx

One rewatch, one new watch.

Rewatch: Black Swan (2010) - This truly is a great movie that keeps getting better with repeated viewings. I'd confidently say its Aronofsky's second best film behind the The Wrestler. A disturbing, yet brilliantly crafted film that examines the dangers of obsession. Chilling performance from Natalie Portman, and an even more chilling ending. 9.5/10

New watch: Point Blank (1967) - This movie rightfully lived up to its billing a noir classic. Loved everything about it. The Mel Gibson movie, Payback is a cheap, pathetic imitation of this classic. 9/10

Have you ever watched Perfect Blue?

Arronofsky bought the rights to remake it so that he could directly lift scenes and ideas from it for Black Swan without violating any copyright law.





Dracula (1931)



Watched this last night in the theatre. I understand that Bela Lugosi is the best vampire ever, but the overall quality of the movie is pretty dull.

I will be perfectly ok if there will be a remake, the question is who will be the new Dracula?

Frankenstein (1931)

A doubleheader classic horror in the theatre!

Compared to Dracula, I feel this is a better movie, especially the plot.



Again, who will be the new Frankenstein if there will be a remake?
