    I legit thought it was a heist movie when I started watching it so the whole ghost stuff was pretty shocking. I thought it was pretty watchable up until the very end which totally ruined it for me.

    So about A Quiet Place
    The movie asked me to take too many leaps in logic. It just had me asking how and why the entire time. Why would this couple bring a noisy baby into this world where silence is the key to survival. How did they find the time or mood to make a baby after their son was killed and while they spend their days trying to survive and take care of their other 2 children. Why didn't they secure their living quarters better? No soundproofing? Couldn't find a bunker? Where'd the fucking nail come from in the steps all of a sudden??? How'd the military or any scientists not notice sonic weaponry wasn't the answer to killing these things? These things are already in development and being implemented in real life! Far too many jump scares. The movie was too quiet when it wasn't jumpscare blaring. I don't want to hear a bunch of gross movie goers crunching and crinkling their fucking wrappers and food. It took me out of the moment. Ugh the shitty lazy creature design. I'm so tired of the cliched resident evil, stranger things demogorgon, cloverfield, vaguely insectoid long armed short legged monster. It was a essentially a walking ear with sharp claws and teeth. Very dumb. I could go on and on about the lazy writing of this thing but those are the major things I can think of right now.

    I see where your coming from.

    I feel a lot of movies do that, but here are some counterpoints I suppose. Have you met people? Couples can be baby crazy, there’s tons of people across the world that shouldn’t have babies for plenty of good reasons but they’ve still do. They did sound proof the room where they ended up putting the baby; when they show the kids wheat pasting magazine pages to the wall is when they were trying to do that. It would seem really difficult to find a bunker without knowing where it exactly it would be considering the monsters rely on sound. The military part didn’t make much sense either, but if they had spent time trying to destroy them before they figured it out, they might have been wiped out from all the general noise they were making during the effort. I enjoyed the jump scares since they made sense in a way, most people are dead and the family is avoids sound for lost of the movie. Jump scares are usually cheap, thought they fit due to the setting. Can’t comment on the people being noisy since everyone was super quiet in my theatre the whole time. The monster design may have been cheap to a certain degree but I couldn’t think of a design that would make sense for whole sound thing. It’s supposed to be more of an animal than the usual intelligent alien in other movies. It has the body shape so it can move around fast. If it had more of a face with eyes then it wouldn’t make sense to just be quiet.

    It's right up my alley. And the one little shining glimmer of hope, since I doubt it will play in my town, is that all A24 movies go to Prime eventually.

    That girl though!!

    Hereditary is the first full length film for the writer / director, Ari Aster, so here’s hoping it’s something fresh and I haven’t been fooled by a well edited trailer again. I agree with y’all, the trailer looks great.

    He has a few short films under his belt. Anyone seen any of those? The titles: https://m.imdb.com/name/nm4170048/filmotype/writer?ref_=m_nmfm_2

    From the films’ descriptions, Ha, they kind of all sound like they could be that film , @Lttr Prssd . Although after gogglin his name, I’m pretty sure which one you’re referring to, Mr. Johnson.

    Am I right? :D

    Not sure about peepin that one myself.

    Anyone have thoughts on the potential casting for IT Chapter 2?

    Watched "CARGO" starring Martin Freeman. It was a slow burn filmed in Australia so all of the outdoor shots were picturesque. I can't recall a horror movie with aborigines so this was a nice change of pace. I just watched it without any expectations and found it to be enjoyable.

    Saw "1922" which is a novella by Stephen King and I also viewed "Gerald's Game." "1922" reminded me of older King material reminiscent of "Night Shift" and "Graveyard Shift". Gerald's Game was decent and Carla Gugino figured quite prominently in it. I definitely dug "1922" more. If I was short on time, I'd pick "1922". Kind of felt a bit crestfallen with "Gerald's Game" because it left me with the " Is that it?" feeling when the movie ended.

    I agree. I saw an 11pm showing of it (I usually go to be around 10pm). The combination of me being tired and it being an insane attack on the psyche was very impactful. Acting was also really good in my opinion.

    We loved it and enjoyed that the trailers for it never really gave anything away. Great film, wasn’t really frightening but disturbing. The ending left me very satisfied.

    Yes! The acting was awesome. Toni Collette should get a nod or two, IMO. they were all good though.

    Hereditary was so unsettling in the best way. My eyes were pretty dry by the end of the movie from how little I blinked, and my body a bit stiff from how tense I was. Really agreeing with Emanuel that the trailer didn’t give much away at all, and it certainly wasn’t what I was expecting, though I can’t really say what that was. I loved The VVitch, so I’m glad this perfectly followed suit, and even exceeded expectations.

    Speaking of Hereditary: Toni Collette and Alex Wolf both were just so phenomenal. is going places! It didn’t feel like the movie was two hours long either! Most slow burn horror movies take forever to get through.

    Ummm, holy shit! Hereditary was a masterpiece. We are in somewhat of a renaissance for horror films aren't we. Great times to be alive.
