Looks pretty terrifying. I just hope the performance is as good.

I'm actually pumped for Saw.

I like the directors they are going with.

If you're confused as to how this just came out of nowhere, the original title of the movie was called The Woods

So two new reviews for everyone. First up....

Stranger Things - This is a Netflix original series, 8 episodes long. It is fantastic. There's not too much I can say, but the basic premise is a mystery surrounding the disappearance of a young boy, and a young girl who shows up and has mysterious telepathic powers. It takes place in 1983, and the atmosphere is spot on. There are so many horror references, and the whole story itself feels straight out of a Stephen King's best works, with a dose of Silent Hill. Nearly all the characters are well developed, and besides the obvious villain characters, it was hard to hate any of them. I don't want to say much more, because I want to preserve the mystery for everyone. 9/10, not 10 because there are a few slow points, but nothing that detracts from the series.

The Invitation - Caught this film on Netflix as well. It's also hard to describe without giving too much away, but I'll do my best. A guy and his new girlfriend are going to a dinner party hosted by the guy's ex-wife and her new fiancé. There's some history that is shown throughout the film that led to their break up, but since a good number of his friends are also going, he decides to go. The ex-wife and her fiancé have been in Mexico, exploring a new lifestyle, and have invited some people they met as well.

Let me ay this, this film is straight tension from start to finish. From the moment they arrive until the very end, you feel like something is very wrong, but the film is very good at throwing curveballs to subvert your expectations. Everything does come together, and I will say, it may be a bit what you are expecting all along, but the journey to that point, and the things you learn, are very well put together, and do make you care about what happens. It ends on a bit of a twist in the final minute, which I was kind of meh on, but it didn't hurt the film. Overall, 7/10. I recommend seeing it, but its a very slow burn film, but the tension is really good, so it probably won't bore you.

I saw the Invitation on Netflix and almost watched it but backed out because my girlfriend had never seen the original "The Exorcist." I was thinking I might check it out next time though and now I'm going to. Thanks for the brief review!

And another review to add:

Lights Out - I'm sure many of you have seen the trailers by now, in fact I think some are in this thread. The film is about an entity that lives in the dark, but there is more to it than that. The film follows Becca, a young woman with sever trust issues, whose little brother contacts her about the fact he isn't sleeping at home. His father mysteriously died at the beginning of the film, and his mother seems to be slipping back into depression, a condition she has had all her life. At night his mother talks to someone, and one night he sees the entity his mother talks to, and calls Diana. He asks his sister for help, who experienced similar events when she was a child.

In terms of scariness, it had a few good jump scares, some pretty good tension, but overall it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. I admit horror films tend to have a hard time scaring me anyway, but I wasn't as unsettled as I expected to be. Still, the story was well thought out, and it doesn't drag at all. There's one simple reason I will recommend maybe waiting for the DVD: the runtime is short. Like, according to my theater, it was 80 minutes, but my showing was at 2:25, there was at least 20 minutes of credits, I left when the credits started rolling, and it was 4:05. Not to say it isn't worth the price, I still am glad I supported the film, but when taking this into consideration, I paid 5.25, since it was the early price, but being as its not as cheap in other places, then your mileage may vary. 7.5/10.

‘Saw’ Producer to Remake ‘Pumpkinhead’

Quote :

The 1988 horror slasher Pumpkinhead is the latest horror film to land on the “remake” table, although the man behind the updated version is trying his best to prove that his intentions are nothing short of honorable.

Peter Block, known as one of the executive producers of the Saw franchise, has obtained the rights to the Pumpkinhead franchise, according to EW, and he wants to bring the creature back from the cinema graveyard. He enlisted a young scribe by the name of Nate Atkins to write the script.

“‘Pumpkinhead’ is one of my favorite horror films of the late ’80s, early ’90s. Stan Winston sits on that Mount Rushmore of iconic filmmakers because of his creature designs, and that was his first directing effort. The creature’s great but the emotional story is wonderful as well,” Block explains.

The updated version is going to pay homage to the original film but only those who know the first well will catch on. “There’s a lot of Easter eggs for people who know the original — iconic shots and iconic lines that we’re going to use.” However, Block assures everyone that there is a purpose to this remake, stating, “…we’ve enhanced the setting, and we’ve expanded the characters somewhat, to give it a different kind of experience.”

Perhaps the biggest point that Block makes is that he recognizes the respect the horror community has for Stan Winston and practical FX, saying, “I am a big proponent of practical effects. That was the great thing about the original. A lot of the films I still respond to most today, it’s because of the practical effects. We think that it’s going to be a nice slow reveal, lots of scares and lots of action in the beginning, and a great creature in the end, which everybody should be able to look at and say, ‘Oh, that’s Pumpkinhead!’ It’s not like you’re all of a sudden going to find that it’s some amorphous, nebulous, CGI wispy thing. You’re going to know it came from the Pumpkinhead family lineage.”

In the original film, which starred Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Alien3), a store owner is overcome with grief after the accidental death of his son. Seeking out vengeance, he teams with a local witch to raise the entity known as “Pumpkinhead” so that those who cause him so much grief can suffer their own horrific fates.

I don't know how I feel about this, because I'm really afraid this is going to be a CGI-fest. The original monster was clearly puppet work, but it still worked very well. Never saw the sequels, always heard they were pretty poor.

I really enjoyed this one. Pretty interesting and a bit of a twist in the idea of "The bad guy" in some ways.


I liked the idea of this one. Sort of Zombie-ish but not completely and dips into folklore but explains it in a somewhat scientific way. You can find it on Netflix

‘Siren’: Here’s When You Can See Our ‘V/H/S’ Spinoff!

Quote :

“I like you.”

V/H/S breakout star Hannah Fierman is returning to her “Amateur Night” role in Siren, our non-found-footage spinoff directed by Gregg Bishop (Dance of the Dead, The Other Side, VHS: Viral).

Siren, executive produced by V/H/S director David Bruckner, is set for release in theaters on December 2, 2016 with a VOD, Digital HD and DVD date set for December 6, 2016 through Chiller Films.

Those in Chicago can catch a special screening at the Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival this weekend on Sunday, Aug. 21 at 8 p.m. at the Muvico Rosemont. It will also play FrightFest in London on Sunday, Aug. 28 at 6:30 p.m. at Discovery Screen Two.

The film also stars Chase Williamson (The Guest, John Dies at the End, Beyond the Gates),  Justin Welborn (The Final Destination, The Signal),  Michael Aaron Milligan (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Hayes Mercure (Mascots), and Randy McDowell (Elvis).

Based on a short by David Bruckner, the feature was written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski.

“‘Siren’ is a horror-thriller about Jonah, an apprehensive groom-to-be whose bachelor party turns into a nightmare when he frees a seemingly innocent victimized girl locked up in a supernatural sex club. Her ruthless handler and proprietor of the sex club will stop at nothing to re-capture his prize. Jonah struggles to rescue the girl only to discover it is he who needs to be rescued as he comes to the realization that she is a dangerous fabled predator who has chosen him as her prize.”

All of my HYPE! That was the best short of the first V/H/S/ hands down.

I've been reading the book "Crystal Lake Memories", and one thing I never knew was David Goyer anonymously polished the script to Freddy vs. Jason. Not that it's a great movie, but I love it. Just some trivia I never knew.

31- A Rob Zombie Film :

Well, as some of you know, I'm not the biggest supporter of Rob Zombie. I found his early music good, but most everything in the last decade or so I haven't been a big fan of. I liked House of 1000 Corpses, and loved The Devil's Rejects, but everything from there was down hill. Halloween I disliked, H2 I hated, and Lords of Salem had a couple decent moments, but mostly dragged and eventually stumbled into the nonsensical. To say I wasn't expecting anything highly from this film would be underselling my expectations. As it turns out I wasn't wrong to set my expectations so low...but that doesn't mean what I saw was necessarily bad.

31 is probably Zombie's best, in my own opinion, since The Devil's Rejects, maybe Halloween if you liked that one. That isn't to say it's a complex movie, far from it in fact. The story can be summed up in a couple sentences: A group of people who work for some sort of fair or carnival are traveling back home on Halloween. After encountering a road block, they are taken hostage and forced to fight for their life in a 12-hour game called 31.

Forgive me that I don't recall the character names of most of the main cast. They aren't generic, they've got their own qualities, but I only recall Sheri Moon Zombie as Charlie, since they scream her name a few times, and I'm just going off memory here. The killers are....sort of one note. There's Sick-Head, a little person latino, who paints himself like and idolizes Adolf Hitler. There's Schizo-Head and Psycho-Head, two brothers dressed like clowns with chainsaws. There's Sex Head and Death Head, a small sexy woman (played by E.G. Daily of all people, aka Tommy Pickles from Rugrats.) and a large German Man, both wearing white shirts and tutus. Lastly, there's Doom-Head, the most fleshed out killer, who we still learn very little about, but get a lot of his personality. In character he seems very insane, but when we see him briefly in his home, he seems like a pretty regular guy. There's also a group of older people, two older woman, and one man (played by Malcolm McDowell) who are bidding on the five victims for some unknown purpose. I think they were some sort of Satanists, as we see a lit up pentagram table they are betting on, but otherwise, they just seem to like screwing with people.

It's a pretty simply, pretty brutal movie. There's a couple problems that stand out, besides the one note killers. first off, the cinematography is all over the place. In one particular fight, the jump cuts were so bad, it was hard to tell what was going on. Things were happening, but it was so fast, and shaky, I couldn't follow very well. The next thing, and I stress this for anyone with even mild epilepsy: there is a scene that goes on for several minutes, with the brightest strobe effects I've ever seen in a film, and while they occasionally cut away, it's never long enough for my eyes to readjust before being assaulted again. There's still more shakey cam in other places, and it was frustrating, since I was actually pretty engaged in the film.

So here's one of my last problems: Sheri Moon Zombie. She's not bad, her acting is pretty well better than all the other films I've seen her in. The problem is, in terms of Rob's films, even the ones I don't like, she's kind of overused. I mean every movie she has to have some major part (hell, H2 shoehorned her in in the stupidest way yet.), and knowing she was a main character here, and one of the good guys, I just couldn't care since I was sure she'd make it to the end. She's not the worst, but it's like Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, I like them both, but it wears very, very thin after a while together.

So, overall, I actually did enjoy myself despite the flaws. It's far from perfect, and doesn't quite reach The Devil's Rejects or House of 1000 Corpses, but it's got some good points, and some good characters. The effects work is good, while I wasn't a huge fan of the factory setting, there are set pieces that were nice. My overall rating of the film would be 6.5/10 .

Well, this is without a doubt the horror movie I've waited for the longest in my life (about ten years, at least hoping for it to happen), so I'm excited. News has been EXTREMELY hard to come by about this movie, we've basically just had a title for the longest time. And releasing the first trailer two months before release is pretty batshit insane. But I'm excited to finally see the trailer! Bring on Samara! cheers

EDIT: Oh, and Vincent D'Onofrio is in it. My favorite actor from JW. 'Nuff said. Cool

Not sure I'm going to be interested in AMC's Fearfest this year...half of it is dominated by Walking Dead marathons and I simply do not give a damn about Walking Dead.

I love the TWD, but AMC can screw right off if that's what they're doing.

As its my favorite, I'll always support it, but Halloween is starting to feel like a dead holiday to me in terms of the overall populace. Haunted houses and big theme parks still do stuff, but with the overly PC nature of everyone, kids don't trick or treat like they used to, giant sections of Walmart dedicated to it are down to an aisle or two while Christmas already begins in the garden center, TV stations now barley show any good marathons until right before the holiday. Hell, AMC used to dedicate the entire month to this holiday.
I say this as a father of two, but god forbid we watch our kids at a safe distance and let them trick or treat like kids have done for the last 75+ years, lets instead heard them into a parking lot for "trunk or treat" for ten minutes then go home with a years worth of dental bills. It's never been about the candy for me. It was always about the costumes the atmosphere, and when I got older, the horror. It's not celebrating death and murder, but fear in all its forms, and having fun with that.

I am tossing up seeing Ouija. It does seem a bit far fetched though.

First one or new one coming out? I hear the enw one is pretty decent but the trailers spoiled a lot of the film. The original got terrible reviews, and I never even saw it myself.

Got my copy of Scream Factory's The Exorcist III Blu-Ray, which includes the never before seen Director's Cut (Sadly, not the original Director's Cut, as the footage is apparently lost. From what was said, they found tapes of dailies, alternate takes and whatnot, which included takes from the cut scenes. They cleaned them up some, but not to the standards of the rest of the film, and inserted them to create a cut as close to the original version as possible.).

The first Ouija is pretty good but I have mixed feelings on the sequel/prequel. It looks kinda bleh but Ill probably end up seeing it anyway.

you guys seen MatPat's Film Theory video on it? he puts forth the suggestion that the Ouija films are set in the same universe of The Exorcist, and in fact that the events of each of them are pretty closely linked

I spent Halloween watching the original Poltergeist, such a good film.

i marathoned the first two seasons of Lost Tapes, personally. unfortunately the third season wasn't on that YouTube playlist so i watched my favorites from the third season instead: "Beast of Bray Road", "Q: The Serpent God", "Wendigo: American Cannibal", "Yeti", "Poltergeist", and "Zombies" (though not in that order--i made a point of watching the wendigo and poltergeist episodes in the middle because they're undoubtedly the scariest not just in that season, but in the entire series and used Bray Road as a cool-down at the end of the night). i wasn't paying as much attention as i could've throughout the night, though, since i was working the door for trick-or-treaters--i dressed up as Black Mask Smile
