I had a medical emergency that set me back but now I'm recovering and can't really do anything but watch tv so I've been putting movies away. Yesterday I watched:
THE LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE (1973)
Found this on Netflix. Didn't really connect with it. It was shortly after returning from the hospital and I had a toddler running around so that could be why. Might have to revisit.
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET PART 2: FREDDY'S REVENGE (1985)
Probably my favorite Nightmare film outside of 1, 3 and New Nightmare. Freddy is still dark in this, especially the way he mentally toys with Jesse and the dogs with the creepy kid faces are pretty freaky looking. A lot of unintentional comedy in this. You get an exploding parakeet. Jesse's "You can't talk to me like that." I won't get into all of the homoerotic subtext as that's been talked to death but that dance Jesse does while cleaning his room tho.
TEXAS CHAINSAW (2013)
I like this when I first saw it and I still like it now. However, I will say that I have a low bar for what makes me like a movie and that is did I or did I not enjoy it. I thought it was an interesting direction to go after the Platinum Dunes entries. I like how they made all of her friends pretty terrible and the one guy a thief so that way when she decides to stay you're not saying but that dude killed all of your friends. I was hoping the new Leatherface movie from this year would pick up after this but from what I understand it's a prequel.
MY BLOODY VALENTINE (2009)
This is my kind of movie. I'm a fan of blood and gore so the beginning when Warden wakes up and murders a whole hospital and there is blood and body parts everywhere, I'm in. I wish Jensen Ackles would do more movies. I think he does a good job with what he's given, especially at the end when it's time for him to flip the switch and go full crazy.
THE POSSESSION (2012)
It was Winchester's day at my house as this one has Jeffrey Dean Morgan in it. Pretty standard demonic possession fare. One critic called it "The Jewish Exorcist" That's about right.
