Passable for a Sat night.
I didn't watch that Strangers sequel because of the reception, but I may check it out eventually. I really enjoyed the first one. I still think the ending of the first is one of most terrifying scenes I've seen. Just because they had absolutely no motive for what they did, and it could happen to anyone. That thought is terrifying to me.

That "Because you were home" line. *shivers*

Angst was unreal. Unrelenting character study and morbid as fuck. The camera work adds so much to it; some of the film felt actually felt like I was watching a snuff because of how it bobbed around. I'm usually not big on lots of narration but I don't know if this would have worked anywhere near as well without it. Easy new favourite.

Spoiler for ANGST:


With her, I'll do it in the most precise manner.

I love how the film makes me root him on in his fulfillment of killing, and yet those victims he targets and their fates are harrowing all at the same time. It's incredible watching him skulk around, looking to kill. Like truly, on a different level incredible. Still nothing out there like it. Hearing his thoughts and realizations throughout only adds to it. Watching a psychopath adapt, react, readapt, act. I piped in a specific inside joke there because reasons that make me me, but it's true all the same.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.
Those lacking imagination take refuge in reality.

Now I need to watch this Angst that everyone is buzzing about.



Edit after watching trailer;



I thought that I've been battle-tested with the likes of the original Texas Chainsaw and Audition in the way of depraving art, but this looks to be opening a whole new can of worms. May god have mercy on my sanity.

Audition wishes it could be on the level of Angst.

Re: Your October movie-binging plans (Halloween month, DUH) Part II: Dead by Dawn

I watched Angst last night.



That was my first mistake. I probably should've watched it in broad daylight!



What an absolute nightmare scenario. I don't think I've ever seen a creepy home invasion feel this realistic, and they couldn't have picked a better actor for the role. There are times where I almost felt as helpless as the familly being tormented. I absolutely hated the experience, which I think is a good thing within this context. I didn't hate it because I thought that it sucked, I hated it for how much mental anguish it was putting me through. It doesn't get gratuitous with the gore (despite having it's moments), but rather uses atmosphere to set the tone which somehow makes it so much more horrific. This movie is certainly a full-on assault on the senses, and not meant to entertain in the slightest.



Now I need to watch some Walt Disney movie as a palate cleanser. Those were the longest eight hours of sleep in my life.

Angst is something else.

I have only watched the original TCM and this, and tbh I'd like to believe the family does the things it does because they thrive on seeing the horror they make their victims feel.

The whole arc in the first movie with the hitchhiker giving the friends and the viewer a tease of what's to follow, Leatherface taking down everyone around Sally one after the other (the novelty of seeing it for the first time adds to it too, I guess), the father giving Sally a slight sense of hope only to lead to that dinner table scene which was EVERYTHING. Telling me they're doing this because there's a man in a suit asking them to just takes away from the whole thing for me - no matter what kind of a belly piercing the suit has.

Also after what you've come to expect of the franchise and the genre in general, McConaughey running people over with a car (which we don't even see entirely) felt just a tad bit underwhelming. Don't even want to know why there's a plane so conveniently flying in the area that helps take McConaughey down the following morning - unless that's the Illuminati's doing as well.

Now, Martyrs on the other hand
