    Have you seen it @PJ_Soul ?
    I have not. I was thinking about it for next weekend, but I have seen some criticism about it. Many seem to think it would have been more successful as an anthology film.

    Yep, thought it would be an anthology film in the vein of TRICK 'R TREAT - separate storied loosely connected. Instead it's kind of a boring cliched narrative with the "stories" springled throughout more like nightmares from A Nightmare on Elm Street.

    It's pretty shit written honestly. 

    Have you read the books? Curious and looking at buying them. But can an adult find enjoyment out of them, or are they really children stories?

    I read them when I was a kid, and I read them now to my kids. 

    We have no interest whatsoever in seeing the film.

    Do you get anything out of the stories as an adult? Or are they really for small kids?

    They are not a thing here in Sweden... so have never seen the books... but will I as a 35 year old get something out of reading them?

    Slumberparty Massacre 1 and 2 wasn't as good as my friend had said.

    I still have a childish (and macabre) sense of humor—plus, they hold some nostalgia for me as well—so I still enjoy them.

    It: Chapter 2. 
    Overly long indulgent CGI fest lacking in horror and wasting a great cast. Stephen King wears a Neil Young t-shirt.

  • Hmm... haven't seen the original Black Christmas yet. Which is a bit embarrassing. Watched the remake that came out in 2006-2007... but never the original.

    Whatever that trailer was for Blumhouses Black Christmas is in no shape or form, Black Christmas. I feel like I just watched that whole movie in 90 seconds. Awful.
    Go watch the original from the late 70s. It's fantastic. 
    And so you see, I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.

  • Not available to rent or stream here... will have to ask my horror-friend if he has it on DVD/BD.

    I started watching JIGSAW yesterday on Netflix. But stopped halfway through and put on Airplane instead.

    i believe so. It was old, so I guess it was 35 mm.

    Amazing! They are showing the first one here. But it's a DCP. The same with The Matrix. 

    True Romance will be shown on 35 atleast

  • Movies of 2019, number 18: Doctor Sleep. Boring as a Stephen King miniseries from the 90s. Referencing the past as heavyhanded as a popculture t-shirt. All looking like an ugly instagram filter.

    Actually saw this last night. Overall I enjoyed it. Pretty long and could have cut out some parts.

    Are you just saying that because Rebecca Ferguson is cute wearing a hat?
