Yes, I can't disagree.

I thought it was pretty good as well.

 

There are a few good ones on Netflix, but not much. 

 

There's a lot of crap on there too.

 

I agree there too. As judgmental as it may seem, usually I can tell what looks like something I don't need to see from its title, the poster/images used for the movie, and its plot description.

Yikes, its tone doesn't sound pleasant at all, and not just from all that usage of "the R word". Maybe it's something I should skip.

Shamefully, I hadn't even heard of that until now. I am glad then it's getting a nice release soon.

I'm intrigued.

Also, there is a 20 minute follow up on HBOGO OR HBONOW but for some reason not on HBO Ondemand. It's called the Tickle King and it follows what happened after the movie when they are showing it at film festivals.

Oh my, word has leaked out that the producer's cut of "Halloween 6" will play at the 666 all-night horror fest this Friday. I haven't seen that cut.

It's........a bit better. The story makes some kind of sense at least. Ending is cool though. Wish they could have went with it.

ETA: Looks like Walt and I were thinking the exact same thing..

I saw Part 5 at their "fifth movie" festival last year. Woof.
post #17707 of 17724
The Producer's Cut of part 6 makes it almost possible to connect all the movies (semi) coherently from Carpenter's original all the way up to Resurrection.

If that's something you feel the need to do..

Is all the dumb druid bullshit still in it?
post #17709 of 17724
Oh fuck yeah. It's laid on even more thickly in that cut. It's like they were trying to retroactively make Season of the Witch as much a part of the proceedings as possible. Totally bonkers..

You know you're gonna watch it..

CUB: nasty little boy's eye horror that shocked me a little bit at dark turns it kept taking. You can argue it almost falters in paying off, but it's such a weird and exciting set up, I was never not captivated or creeped out.

'If Ingmar Bergman directed The Texas Chain Saw Massacre' Buzz for THE EYES OF MY MOTHER has me super intrigued.

That's been on VOD for a while now.  Been tempted to rent it.

Not exactly. H20 ignores all the movies except for 1 and 2. Also Resurrection isn't just terrible for it's plot but terrible for what they did to Laurie Strode. Fuck that.

The Editor: part pastiche, part parody of grindhouse giallo. An almost as delightful retro love letter as THE LOVE WICH.

On Shudder: The strange and creepy Bruce Dern cult classic TATTOO.

Bruce Dern as a proto-hipster!

I just re-watched the Poltergeist remake.

 

I don't think it's as bad as many say. On it's own, it isn't bad, but I think that it hurt itself by calling itself Poltergeist.

 

Under a different name it probably would've done better, it's not as crappy as some of the other stuff they put out.

It's a nothingburger of a movie.
post #17721 of 17724
I think everything is decent and effective until the finale. It should have really raked in the terror and physics-bending supernatural attacks. Instead of an all CG "other side" finale.

Yes, but that's the audience of today.

 

The mainstream ppl that watch these days want to see that, not the creepy, unsettling things that we might prefer.

I saw the "Alien"-but-with-scientists movie "Life" this evening. It's about as aggressively average as you can imagine. But the ending is pretty cool. Just show up for the last five minutes and you be like, "Ha, cool..."

The images and posters alone that I've seen have left me curious and puzzled; I imagine I'll see it one of these days.

I somehow haven't seen anything from Astron-6... at least not yet.

I still would like to check it out; I hope I can think of it as more than average.

 

Tonight I finally saw another giallo; unfortunately it was because one of its stars-Tomas Milian-has just passed away at the age of 84. While he's more known for his work in the Spaghetti Western or Poliziotteschi genres, he did appear in Don't Torture A Duckling, which is what I watched. I don't need to tell you guys that Fulci was a madman. What a loony story, yet I definitely did enjoy it. There are several amazing moments, from the fate of the villain to everything about Barbara Bouchet's first scene; talk about "Italian sleaze". The film's definitely unsettling, too. I am glad I finally saw it, in other words.
