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

October 3rd- Ghostland (Home Invasion) A girl with her mother and sister move to a old house they just inherited from an aunt, but right as they are unpacking are attacke by two psychos. The visuals were very "70s" but it is arguably set in moder times as a smartphone is shown and laptops mentioned, and the story jumps back and forth to the future so is disorienting, which probably was intended. With the film sticking to one character there's no much developement, the villains were intriguing but was not about them. Somewhat Wes Craven-y so may be worth a watch.

Late Phases
(werewolf movie) or maybe a movie with werewolves... the title seems to refer to the last part of a person's life, so it is more about getting ready for the last stand, was interesting but most werewolves films have the problem of "27 days" which puts pressure on the transformation with that much buildup, and they don't make it like the early 80s anymore, so may be a bit of a let down... besides, taking place in a senior citizen community it is an unconventional film for Hollywood standars.


October 4- Man VS (Aliens) While filming a survivalist tv show, survival expert gets to relive the Predator classic film, as aliens take over the world. Is not found footage, it just borrows some shots from the in universe tv show camera. Enjoyable low budget horror flick.

Ok. But you know, watching it helps instead.
Okay my bad, I wasn't clear enough. I posted that right after I finished dozing off twice in the first hour because literally nothing happens until the final twenty five minutes where they butcher it further by implying the family is just putting on a show for a higher power and doing their bidding watching the movie.

Terrifier is 100% a total new favorite of mine. Holy shit, this is a nightmare come true. It's put me in a total manic sense of ecstasy after it. Love, love, love it.

Everything happens in every scene. So many bodies getting murked left and right; it's beautiful. Illuminati be damned.

(but at least we got that cleared up from earlier and you did check it out)

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

Watched Halloween 6 today. Well, a custom hybrid cut that combines the producers cut with the theatrical cut.

H6 does have one the best Fall/Halloween atmospheres, a brutal Myers, the best mask since H2 (altho it didn't have much to live up to with H4/H5) some excellent cinematography and some good, gory kills. It really does convey the Halloween look very well and even in the daytime scenes, it does a good job of keeping the tension going.

I forgot how good the mask actually looked in this too. There's a part where Myers killed Tim Strode and you see the mask in a mirror and it looks fantastic. Myers himself is one of the best and Wilber does a v.good job.

Now, I'm not suddenly saying the movie is great overall. It still features the thorn nonsense and the story is still a convoluted mess that should have been made far tighter. But there's a lot of promise in this movie and if the studio/director/producers could have just settled on one vision for it, it would have been more promising.

But I still quite enjoy part 6 and always have done. Just a shame they couldn't have made a more coherent story. Far too many cooks in the kitchen.

Watched The Strangers Prey at Night last night. Similar stalking slasher formula as the 2008 original only not as suspenseful. More jump scares, kills and blood this time around. I liked the 80s new wave soundtrack on top of these murderous acts which again made this movie feel similar to the original and also the movie You're Next. Makes for a twisted blood letting. Passable for a Sat night.
