I always enjoy watching some of these trailers especially from the 80's. Each movie is good in their own ways.

Thoughts on this one? Will Michael finally be killed once and for all? Producer Jason Blum says the trailer should be out by early Jun.e.

the only way to kill Michael, Freddy, Jason or anybody else, is by not seeing their movies.

Sometimes just going into the water for a swim, turns to be the gravest of mistakes.

that looks like it could be pretty good. I liked Halloween H20. It wasn;t genius like the first on bit it was good.

Critics are saying this new movie "hereditary" is good, but some of the audience reviews are low.

What I like so much about it is the attention to details from the original(just watch closely on what I mean). the nods to the sequels, and the fact that Jamie L Curtis is now essentially Loomis here(which is so great and such a way to honor the late Donald Pleasence and all he did for the series.)

I'm one of the only people I know who actually liked Halloween 3. I vaugely remember seeing H20, and I've seen the Zombie remakes, but other than that, just the original two.

I don't hate it. On its own, it is a pretty interesting 80s horror thriller. And I can appreciate what they were doing, trying to turn the Halloween series into a collection of various horror stories. But considering that people were always going to compare it to the previous Halloween movies, Halloween 3 was pretty much dead on arrival.

I've easily seen... well, a lot of fucking horror movies.

To date I would say 1% are great must watch films, 10% are good and the remaining 39% are OK and the final 50% are utter garbage.

I keep all the really good horror movies and outside of the classics (last 10-20 years) there have only been a handful of movies that stuck out to me.

Sinister
Evil Dead


Some of the other notables in my collection at John Carpenter's The Thing, The Exorcist, Child's Play (I was very surprised how well this held up, and how humorous it was), The Shining, Alien/s. Then it goes into just good films like a first viewing of Saw, The Blair Witch Project, Cabin in the Woods, The Conjuring, The Ring and Insidious.

I've dabbled with posting reviews somewhere but I really can't be fucked to care enough.

One caveat to note is that horror films based off rape/torture shock scenes and nothing more (like The Hills Have Eyes, for example) rank extremely poorly for me. You raped 'em. Good job. Where's the fucking content? Asshole.

Cool movie. Top 10%. Interesting premise. Little twists. A movie that doesn't go to far down the comedy flick but sticks to the true horror nature of it - almost aware of itself. The makeup and affects are superb. Particularly one scene where with a broken leg just sitting there jutting out all askew from the actor.
Solid flick. Definitely recommend.

Green Room
I actually threw this in my rare saved folder for later viewing. Absolutely great movie. Not really scary and had me wondering the entire time. You make it in over an hour before you see any gore and the entire punk/Nazi's/skinheads motif they have going on is pretty intense. Total new feeling to underground music scene I haven't had the pleasure of getting into. The entire time I watched the movie I had a feeling as if I was nawing on some steak that was cooked on charcoals with no grill on it - just literally threw onto hot coals. Getting little bits of charcoal in my mouth as I gnaw on the meat. Delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed the cinematography.

Both films had great cinematography with wonderful framing of shots. Similar to Sinister. Really cool stuff.

Also bonus points for Nina Forever with the unnamed soundtrack songs being Dresden Dolls.

Good stuff.
