    Yep,
    “In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.”

    Bruce Campbell may make an appearance.

    I'm sorry. I just can't get behind that. The great thing about those movies was the hilarity of them! The awful effects! The one liners!! This is a sad day.

    It def looks like it has potential.
    I look at it as being a darker, more serious version of the original.

    Agreed. Hard to tell if it will be good or just another gross out film

    The original Evil Dead was a series horror movie, it was EDII and Army of Darkness that did the comedy bit. Also Raimi and Bruce are involved in this remake. They went the remake route instead of doing ED4.

    And that Stitches movie looks great

    I saw Evil Dead: The Musical Off-Broadway a few years back and sat just outside the "splatter zone." It was a riot! Better than Toxic Avenger: The Musical a couple years later.

    I really like the found footage genre. None of them scare me, but they keep my interest and can get suspenseful.

    My top 5 found footage horror movies are:

    1. Grave Encounters
    2. Quarantine
    3. Paranormal Entity
    4. Paranormal Activity
    5. The Devil Inside

    I watched Grave Encounters yesterday on netflix.

    It was one of the best horror movies I have seen, and definitely the best "found Footage" one IMO. Bonkers. Great rec.

    Still in my queue. It's all about getting my toddler to sleep before I'm ready to call it a night myself.

    Finally watched it. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I watched Sinister last night.

    *Spoilers, as in blowing in the whole movie below*

    *Spoilers*

    *Last Chance*

    I thought it had a lot of potential, and I liked it, despite some major flaws which drive me nuts.
    First, the big twist at the end is flawed. I understand the kids need to drug the adults/older kids so they can overpower them.... Okay. But then we are supposed to believe that these kids can bind/carry/drag adults to the killing locations, hang them, chop them up with push mowers, hack multiple bodies into pieces, drag lawn chairs with people on them across concrete into the pool, etc. It just seems flawed and not well bound together. I think it would have been scarier/better if the kids just merely summoned a physical form of Baghuul by drawing his image over and over.... and that child is consumed once Baghuul executes the family.

    Also, Baghuul is supposed to be a Pagan Diety. Whats with his image bringing him to life then? They didnt have cameras. And what is with the film anyways? When did it start? Why not upgrade to modern technologies? I also dont get how the family has to move before the killing rule. Im not one to pick movies apart for stuff, and I can suspend belief. I even like it when horror movies keep things a mystery... But it felt like this movie completely unravelled at the end.

    The movie was too dark... as in completely lacking illumination. I was staring into a dark screen for long periods of time. He apparently killed a scorpion, I couldnt tell what the hell it was.

    They showed pretty much every scare in the previews, which sucks. Usually I can avoid previews as I dont watch too much popular Television. This movie was widely marketed though. I did like how the scares did not depend on the shrill shrieking noise for fake/cheap effect.

    The musical score and audio in the movie were first class.

    All in all, I would say it was a good, original idea with some potential. generally a terrifying, mysterious bad guy which is good (although that was diminished at the ending IMO). Was pretty suspenseful, but they gave away most of the movie in the previews. The snuff Super 8 films were all very disturbing. 3 stars out of 5.

    I thought the same thing

    The first film started with the first family, which was late 70's?? I agree about the form of media. Unless the Baghuul spirit just continued to make them film in the Super 8 film. The whole location/family thing confused me too.

    The movie was too dark... as in completely lacking illumination. I was staring into a dark screen for long periods of time. He apparently killed a scorpion, I couldnt tell what the hell it was.
    I had no issues with the contrast/picture. Maybe it was on your end?

    I would have liked to have seen more of the Baghuul for sure.

    Funny side note: Film took place in Pennsylvania(Idk where it was filmed). The map they show of the counties(Monroe) in the Poconos is where I lived for 30+ years. Had a laugh at that.

    I rented it a couple of years ago. I guess it was OK, to be honest I don't remember anything about it except the ending, so I guess it was mostly forgettable to me, except the ending. If I hadn't liked it I would remember being disappointed, so it wasn't I thought it was bad, just didn't stand out much I guess.

    If I recall correctly, it was the ending of The Mist that annoyed me.

    The Mist was very good, if you read the SK short story, which is regarded as one of his best/longest ones. I thought the movie did the print story very well. However, the ending really overshadowed the rest of the movie and deviated from the print form.

    So I can't read that giant spoiler post about Sinister because I don't want to spoil it. :P Is it good?

    yeah, if you like horror movies, its a no-brainer to see it. Horror movies are tricky in that probably 75% are awful and forgettable. This one really wasn't. It wasnt a great one IMO, but decent enough to get into the 25%

    And cue the Sinister sequel.....

    Confirming earlier reports, Blumhouse Productions is moving forward on Sinister 2, the sequel to last year’s horror pic that grossed more than $87M worldwide off of a $3M budget, Deadline reports.

    Creators Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill, who wrote the original, are both returning, although it’s unclear if Derrickson will direct once again.

    Well saw it last night. I dug it. Not sure how I felt about the ending, but overall very enjoyable. Oh yeah also we saw it in lack and white which was pretty cool. Followed by the first episode of the Walking Dead in black and white. Also there were 3 cast members of the Walking Dead in the Mist, Andrea, Dale, and Carol. :thumbup:
