    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.

    Loved it. I'd recommend going in unprepared, or at least avoiding that moronic Shudder trailer though...

    Tigers are not afraid is amazing. I’m hyped for whatever Issa Lopez has coming up next.

    I've got it on audio book... needed to use some Audible credits... but haven't listened to it yet. I'll set my expectations to low.

    Picked up a couple of nicely priced S. Clay Wilson collections from a fella on Amazon. His DM replies had a long trail of links in the signature, so I had a peek at his YouTube channel.

    Found this:

    6 years up and I was the 13th view. Let me know if you ended up being the 14th!

    The seller, by the way, plays 'Chad's Dad.' :)

    Can't say The Lighthouse was horror. Loved it. Hated the end for about 10 minutes and then loved it. We can talk about the psychology of it in spoilers. Awesome writing, directing, and acting. If you ever wanted to watch Popeye and Brutus do a Fear and Loathing weekend this is your movie.

    Loved Tragedy Girls. Still struggling to determine whether the "old school vibe" I got from it just means that it was actually a well-made film... :?

    I was pleasantly surprised with Doctor Sleep. It did help that I watched the Shining the night before. Also I watched the Directors Cut which I have heard is better than the theatrical release.

    Thanks for sharing that review, very entertaining! I'm convinced his review was infinitely better than watching the movie :lol:
    "Evyone dumb" a fitting mantra for most horror movies :lol:

    I was surprised by Doctor Sleep that it was an ok movie. Directors Cut. A little drawn out and some substories could have been omitted but still not too bad.

    Finally got to "Tigers Are Not Afraid". Good movie. Made me ponder the difference between fable and horror.

    Joe Bob's Last Drive-In on the Shudder network has been so good this season! Last Friday they even showed Cannibal Holocaust! Last night was Mayhem and Tetsuo: The Iron Man

    The 2019 documentary "Horror Noire: A History Of Black Horror" is streaming FREE on Shudder, no subscription needed. Click here to watch.

    "Delving into a century of genre films that by turns utilized, caricatured, exploited, sidelined, and finally embraced them, Horror Noire traces the untold history of Black Americans in Hollywood through their connection to the horror genre. Adapting Robin Means Coleman’s seminal book, HORROR NOIRE will present the living and the dead, using new and archival interviews from scholars and creators; the voices who survived the genre’s past trends, to those shaping its future. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL."

    There is a new horror flick on Shudder that I liked quite a bit. It's a somewhat standard story but the fact they fully embraced the quarantine is pretty cool. It was filmed remotely in the individual actors actual homes. You'd think that would get old fast but it actually pushes that whole trapped in your house feeling we should all know too well at this point. I enjoyed it for what it was. Bonus points for taking the health and well-being of the world seriously during filming even without much of a budget and still making something entertaining for fans of scary movies.

    Too generic for you? It is a pretty standard horror concept with only the quarantine thing added on top.

    Have you seen Relic yet? I rented it to watch tonight hopefully. Came out last month I think. Critics seem to love it since it's still over 90% on rotten tomatoes.
