So without muddying the water with all the decades of classics - what horror movies did it for you (so far) this year? It's almost halloween, and we all need some new stuff rather than watching Suspiria for the fourteenth time, right?

Don Quishote (jjjusten), Thursday, 22 October 2009 17:32 (twelve years ago) link

the fourteenth time high? it really makes a difference

What the hell is hamster love (CaptainLorax), Thursday, 22 October 2009 17:35 (twelve years ago) link

well yeah

Don Quishote (jjjusten), Thursday, 22 October 2009 17:37 (twelve years ago) link

My surprise nominee (and none of these are going to be academy greats duh) is The Haunting In Connecticut which will not go down in history or anything, but was a totally capable jump scare flick. I have no idea why they promoted the movie the way that they did, the initial theatrical release campaign made it look like some sort of slow yawn slightly creepy snoozefest, when in fact it is 100% cut from the flash of CREEPY DUDE in the mirror/corner/behind the kid school of filmmaking.

plot holes? well yeah, duh, but who cares

Don Quishote (jjjusten), Thursday, 22 October 2009 17:42 (twelve years ago) link

This is prob a good place for me to fly my challop flag and say that as great as Let the Right One In is, it isn't really a horror film IMO.

i just watched drag me to hell last night, and as a old school Raimi fanboy it was a ton of fun (srsly sam it is amazing how much mileage you can get out of the power of people/corpses/demonwhatevers vomiting on other people). Curious to find out how it worked for people that weren't kind of the target audience, esp the classic moments of Raimi complete set up nonsense (the best of which had to be the "well duh why not use these ice skates i was about to pawn on my suspended anvil" idiot lunacy).

drag me to hell was so great -- just rewatched but seeing it in the theatre was amazing what with everyone laughing & screaming simultaneously

i think the only nasty cut-em-up flicks i like anymore come from france or asia, though the first 'hostel' and the first 'saw' were good. i have a ton of friends who are in the horror film community and they're all pretty cynical about it these days, everyone wants to turn shit pg-13.

access flap (omar little), Thursday, 22 October 2009 18:09 (twelve years ago) link

no desire to see the halloween remake, but the trailer was fucking terrifying (i've long held that horror movie trailers are usually way scarier than the actual movie, you just get a succession of jumps and creepy images without any context or warning).

I didn't really feel Hostel when I watched it - though that might've been because I'd watched Wolf Creek the night before which ten times more brutal and believable. Still haven't seen any of the Saws.

martyrs was the best horror movie I've seen in years. it's french torture porn, and then again, it's not... which is what makes it so great. it totally transcends the genre and I can guarantee you won't guess where it's going.

eden park was pretty good. not the greatest film ever made but a nice patch on the "hunted by locals in the woods" genre.

Eden Lake you mean? I liked that a lot, some bits haunted me for a few days. Such a dark ending!

I liked Drag me to Hell. Also liked Jennifer's Body actually. I think a lot of good recent US horror has been genre pastiche/comedy (I'd include Hostel ii).
The French/Asian stuff is nice because it still does well playing the eeriness/bone-gristle straight. I've only seen the first 2 Saws but had to stop because why bother when there's stuff like Martyrs out there.

"The Superdeep" - good monster, decent movie, worth the $4 stream.

Thoughts on "The Night House"? Really liked the atmosphere, Rebecca Hall carrying the movie, and enjoyed reading the polarized IMDB reviews. Usually find films that mix objective (what the camera sees is reality) and subjective (what you're seeing is what one character sees, not necessarily the reality) views frustrating unless overtly called out by the film, but I liked this one. At the end, there's still room for debate. The subject (reason for husband's suicide haunts wife) becomes a metaphor that you could interpret the whole film behind. Not sure the mix is fully successful - would give it 4 of 5 stars - but I came out thinking about it, vs feeling I'd wasted my time.

Objectively, her interactions with other people are 'real': the totem and photos she finds and her friend sees, tracing the books to the bookstore and finding the lookalike who later visits. Both lend evidence to the plot that her husband was tricking a supernatural entity with the reversed house and killing the doppelganger women.

Subjectively, all the supernatural elements happen to her alone, while she's depressed and drinking: she's told the woods are empty but finds the reversed house by herself, the spooky events that end with her waking on the couch or floor, the footprints on the dock, the bathroom scene. Was that all hallucinated while sleepwalking? Also, when she finds the bodies under the reversed house's floorboards, why does she call her friend and then take a shower, instead of calling the police? That's the divisive bit for a lot of the IMDB reviews.

Coming to the last scene, felt the film played it coy and wanted it open to interpretation. I didn't mind so much. Though, if objective, she still has to deal with the dead bodies back at the reversed house.

What I really enjoyed were the f/x of the house in the final scenes, with the spaces morphing to a figure's outline, and the blurry shape at the end in the boat. Very creative.

Don't know if it's discussed further up in the thread, but my wife and I (both folk horror aficionados) watched the folk horror doc Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched over the weekend and enjoyed all 3-plus hours of it. It's on Google Play right now for $1.99. It's hugely ambitious, spinning off of the "holy trinity" to explore the whole idea of folk horror. Sometimes the roster of talking heads feels a bit like Kier-La Janisse basically just recruited all her film-geek friends, and sometimes it wanders in a way that makes it seem like everything is folk horror, but overall it does a good job of returning to its key themes while attacking them from several different angles. Plus it's a ridiculously roster of movies, just dozens and dozens of them. Highly recommended if the subject matter intrigues you at all.

I think the other one we've watched so far (before our viewing was derailed by life events) was called Allison's Birthday. Also recommended.

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Wednesday, 12 January 2022 19:36 (five months ago) link

We're about halfway through the box so far, just about to start the Australian discs (of which Alison's Birthday is one).

Viy was a clear highlight buy I was very intrigued watching Tilbury, which felt like it was made by Dennis Potter. I've enjoyed everything though Lake Of The Dead was really tenuously folk horror.

Count me as another disappointed Censor viewer. I was surprised to see Kim Newman's name among the producer credits; I'm guessing that he was partly there for genre scholarship and deep knowledge of video nasties, but the details all felt ersatz and not very accurately observed. Also found lots of the performances to be severely lacking (especially the sinister horror film director).

On the other hand, I absolutely loved Titane - seen in the cinema, a pure blast of energy. The first 30 minutes in particular are wonderfully intense and expertly sustained. And the scene where the 'son' dances in front of his co-workers is a pretty brilliant piece of filmmaking all by itself.

Ward Fowler, Wednesday, 12 January 2022 19:47 (five months ago) link

I wasn't really sold on Censor either. I thought the first bits were fine but it really fell apart around the point she was trying to get the under the counter film and never recovered. By the end and the multiple (?) dream states it was just a mess but looking at the positives it made me realise a film of Studio of Screams has serious potential.

Thought Titane was great up to a point but in the end was simultaneously too crazy and not crazy enough, depending on what sort of film it was supposed to be. A whole film of the 'son' plot would have been fine, as would a whole film of the 'pregnancy' but both together ultimately felt a bit forced.

Also recommended, but after I had watched it, I saw there was a directors cut also on the disc, so if you only want to watch once, then go for that one.

No idea of the differences, but some parts of the film were so atmospheric, I hope it leaned into that a little more.

i am asking BradNelson in a polite, nonchallenging way to please expand on his enthusiasm for X, bc i thought it was meh. well-acted in general but not much else about it stood out to me - no surprises, no visual flair, etc. also the central premise seemed to be west trying to have it both ways (see spoiler below for more detail)

it felt like west would say the movie was about the sadness of aging and was intended to be sympathetic to pearl, but also 90% of the horror was based on "ew old people expressing their sexuality"

na (NA), Monday, 28 March 2022 14:47 (three months ago) link

again - not trying to be a jerk - i appreciate Brad's general enthusiasm. i would just like to hear more about what you liked about it.

na (NA), Monday, 28 March 2022 14:48 (three months ago) link

the movie is def trying to have it both ways in the sense that mia goth is playing the old woman and is made up to look consumptive as possible, but also the movie definitely knows that "ew old people expressing their sexuality" is a projection of the audience and of literally every character in the film, so it worked for me!

it was also a highly enjoyable hangout movie (with notes of dread) for the first hour. the characters are very charming! i loved the microdynamics of the crew, partic the film school dork and his "churchmouse" boom operator gf

also no visual flair? what amount mia goth in the lake with the alligator? i thought there was a ton to drink in visually!

I loved X. it's not groundbreaking (Ti West rarely is, he just enjoys putting his own wrinkle on existing templates) but stylistically it's marvelous. I love all of the beautiful shots at the farm, the set pieces, and the overall ambience and mood, as well as how ugly things get by the ending.

not to mention that when the blood starts spraying, there are some brutal murder scenes that are visceral as all fuck. well staged on top of that.

really enjoyed Kid Cudi too.
