    Two new Halloween movies coming in 2020 and 2021
    Too bad the first one was kind of dull. And H20 did it all much better. Except for maybe that long one-shot
    Agreed! I watched it yesterday, it was OK.

    Worth watching?

    2-3 of my friends who enjoy horror said they were disappointed in the directors follow up Midsommar.

    Hereditary was better when it was called Rosemary's Baby. Having said that, Toni Colette is far superior to Mia Farrow.

    Yes, it is worth watching and currently free on Amazon Prime.  

    It was a bit lengthy (2 hours) with a lot of slow 'psychological' parts.  

    However, it was a truly original movie, no formula we have seen 1000 times.  It was pretty unsettling.  Today I find myself thinking about it and I am intrigued enough to read a few online explanations and plot summaries.  Zero reliance on jump scares.  It isn't the most 'entertaining' movie.... but it is really well constructed.

    What did you think of IT FOLLOWS? Speaking of original movies?

    Hereditary was one of the best films released last year. And yes, Collette should have been nominated for awards. Superior to It Follows, which was ok to me.
    Definitely  want to see Midsommar.

    I couldn’t even stay focused on THE NUN. 

    Just a bunch of nuns and some worn down church
    Was awful. Wan needs to get ahold of The Conjuring universe because its deteriorating despite being a cash cow. Outside of both Conjuring movies the only other movie in that universe that I liked was Annabelle 2 surprisingly.

    I watched It Follows last night.  I liked it.  Good and original.  Didnt have jump scares but at times had the suspense for one.  Good use of sound and instrumental atmosphere.  

    *some spoiling

    I do think the story ran out of gas and the last 20 minutes or so were disappointing. I felt like the premise had a lot more potential in the "sandbox" the plot created.  Attempts to try to avoid "it", public meltdowns in front of others, attempts to pass "it" up a chain and subsequent destruction of the chain, etc.  

    I also thought the movie was 10x more intense going by the original warning of "dont let it touch you".  Once we see that this thing starts off by pulling hair and you can engage it in battle, friends can hit it with chairs, struggle away from, shoot it with guns, etc, the threat was diminished greatly.

    I need to re-visit It Follows - I have only seen it once but felt it was a breath of fresh air and that one-shot start (like Halloween) hooked me. 

    But I have problems remember the end of it, they were in a swimming pool for some reason...

    And I didn't like that they made it be so linked to a STD. Like not a clever metaphor for STD but an actual STD... I didn't see the point of that at all. Cheapened the idea. Like midichlorians in Star Wars. 

    But the basic premise of something unstoppable coming after you and it doesn't look different from any other person is scary - just like T-1000. And it was executed really well.

    I agree with the last part.  I liked the movie, as i said, but feel like it failed to reach a potential.  The movie was well done, simple, and good atmosphere.

    The most tense shot was when they were at the beach and the viewer sees "it" approaching from behind the girl, unbeknownst to the girl. 

    Then all that happens is it pulls her hair and her friend hits it with a chair and they run away.  It stole a lot of the tension away when we thought that a touch meant the victim would be twisted into a pretzel like the 1st scene.  Now we see it is possible to engage this thing in some sort of combat.


    Much of the movie was just evasion by this group of friends hunkering down.  The sister and that girl with glasses were completely pointless.  The dorky guy getting all jealous of the cool guy throughout the movie was a bit of a waste too.

    They should have had more attempts at evasion.  In the water, on an island, in a building, in an airplane, etc.  Also could have played up the "false positive" type of thing in public where she thinks some people are "it" and is going mental.  Have the cool guy go to an orgy or something after sleeping with the main character and find horrific results.  

    Who knows.  Its like they built a real cool configuration of dominoes, but didnt knock them down.

    It seemed like many people liked this, but I really really did not. It's so unoriginal. At least they have the decency to acknowledge they ripped off the story (you'll see that at the end).

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

    Worse than Urban Legends. I put it on the Valentines Day-tier.

    Crawl. There are some things I would have changed to spruce up the status quo of the terror. But it’s worth a trip to the cinema if you are into alligators.

    Isn't it usually a bad sign when they show the entire plot in the trailer? That being said.. I still want to see it.
