    Oh, I did see “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” recently. Worth a rent, if those books were a part of your childhood. Not worth theater prices though. The monster scenes were fun to see, but the plot was all filler. It would have been better as a miniseries of 15-minute shorts, with all the fluff cut out.

    ^^ Hmmm, that is sort of a disappointing to hear. I don't really have any expectations, and think it would be difficult to adapt anything like this 'accurately' which means so many different things to everyone, but at the very least I always hold out [a little] hope when GDT is involved.

    Really slacked this year for October horror viewings I am afraid. Ended up just watching a lot of stinkers, when I should have just re-enjoyed classics. Finished off the month (so-to-speak) with Doctor Sleep over the weekend. Won't say anything about it, as I know it has not yet received wide release, but, yeah, thoughts.

    It was still October when I caught The Lighthouse, does that count?

    Comedy of the year.

    I am all for dark comedies, but when it comes down to it, I think I'd prefer a really good dark horror to come along.

    ^ Oh, its not so much a comedy, but one of its many virtues is that it happens to be very, very funny.


    My review of Doctor Sleep:

    Didn't care for it.

    The end.

    Interesting. I found the book to be a passable attempt at furthering the story, but not really classic King to say the least. It was fine. I was going to see the flick in the cinema, but then decided not to. Sounds like i might of made the right choice.

    If you're interested in hearing about it from someone who had enough enthusiasm (or click-revenue incentive) to bother picking it apart, I found I was pretty much in total agreement with YMS Adam. Mega dittos to his feelings on The Haunting of Hill House as well.

    Too bad about that Flanagan guy; I really liked his first couple of cheapies.

    From what i could see from the many clips, I think i made the right choice. Also, I agree that the evil woman's hat is more lame looking than cool. I would of found that very distracting. It's the kind of detail I find hard to ignore.
