    I thought the first Annabelle movie sucked but then Creation was good. I enjoyed the first Conjuring but haven't seen the others. Also haven't seen The Nun but heard it blows.

    Both Conjurings are great and I also really enjoyed Creation. Have not seen The Nun.

    Watched the new Pet Sematary. Meh. Greg Popovich not nearly as good as Herman Munster either. I thought the twist was going to be him burying Tim Duncan up there. Would have been better.

    Saw Pet Sematary yesterday too. I thought it was aight. Laughed when during the party scene a person says pretty clearly “Did you hear about that big Saint Bernard that got rabies?”. However, if you’ve read the book or seen the original there’s going to be a Hangul for you like it was for me:

    Halloween’ Rumor: David Gordon Green Returning to Direct Back-to-Back Sequels

    Published 59 mins ago
    on July 8, 2019
    By Brad Miska

    File this one under “unconfirmed rumor that’s too damn juicy to ignore”.

    An extremely reliable insider hit me up with bonkers news late Sunday evening that I haven’t been able to verify (I’m being 100% transparent here). What I’m told is that David Gordon Green has decided to return and direct back-to-back sequels to Halloween (2018), his direct followup to John Carpenter‘s 1978 slasher that ignores all of the franchise’s sequels and continues Laurie Strode’s story 40 years later.

    This is where I get nervous continuing on…

    From what I’m told, not only will they be filming two sequels back-to-back, but they are discussing releasing both in the same month. Yes, it’s within the realm of possibility that we’ll see two Halloween films released in October 2020.

    I know, I know, this sounds completely insane, but there’s a reason why I buy this – outside of the fact that I know and trust my source. There were discussions about shooting the first film back-to-back with a sequel prior to production being shut down in order to recalibrate the ending. Shit, the filmmakers had even joked about shooting a full-blown Halloween trilogy at one point.

    With Halloween (2018) grossing a monstrous $250 million globally, why not take it this distance this time around, especially if you already had everything outlined and ready to go?

    We’ll keep you posted when we have actual confirmation on Green’s return, as well as any indication that they’re actually shooting two films back-to-back, not to mention releasing the same month. Until then, let’s be thankful that Michael Myers is alive and well while Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger lay painfully dormant.

    Gonna see Crawl tomorrow night. Not expecting a whole lot but the early reviews are actually quite good. 100 on RT at the moment but only five reviews.

    I find it incredibly coincidental that it gets released as the same time that a possible hurricane hits Louisiana.

    I enjoyed it. Wasn't a game-changer or anything but I thought it was good. Solid CGI for the gators. Some cheesy moments between the main characters but that's pretty much to be expected with a movie like this.

    Thank you sir, thinking about seeing it or Spiderman one day this week and it seems like it would be easier of the 2 to fit in during a long lunch break.

    Had really high hopes for Midsommar, but was pretty disappointed. Think I hyped it up too much in my head.

    I loved Hereditary, seen it 3 times already. There was a lot of nuance and a lot to unpack in it.

    Midsommar was exceptionally well crafted, watching it unfold story wise was enjoyable. It just lacked that visceral punch and pacing Hereditary did. There are some great moments but I never felt that spiral into madness that I felt watching Hereditary and Midsommer’s setup kind of lends itself to that story framing. I was on the edge of my seat several times in Hereditary but I was a passive observer enjoying a beautifully made film with some really great acting in a foreign setting.

    John Carpenter Claims Jason Blum Told Him To ‘Get Off Your Lazy Butt’ And Work On The New Halloween
    Dirk Libbey

    yesterday

    While John Carpenter built a reputation as a filmmaker making low budget creatures features and other films that could easily be described as "schlock," many of his creations have withstood the test of time and become genuine hits in their own right. Carpenter's Halloween is probably his most popular movie. It spawned numerous sequels over the years. However, Carpenter wasn't actually involved in most of them.

    The recent Halloween reboot, which acted as a sequel to the original film, while discounting every other previous sequel, was one notable exception. John Carpenter wrote some of the music and also acted as an executive producer. The writer/director recently told Variety that he got involved this time around because producer Jason Blum basically told him to put up or shut up. According to carpenter...

    Jason Blum came to me and said ‘This movie is going to be made. So we’d like you, John, to come aboard as an Executive Producer, and just short of shepherd it through. And maybe do the music.’ He challenged me, and he said ‘Why don’t you get off your lazy butt and make it good? Instead of sitting around complaining.’ So I said Ok. It was about like that.

    John Carpenter isn't a guy who keeps his opinions to himself. He's pretty honest about how he feels and in the past he's been pretty critical of the various sequels, remakes and reboots, that have been made of his work. Apparently, the solution to that is to just tell the man to get off his ass and do some work to help make the movie good, rather than simply talk about how bad it is.

    Most would agree, Jason Blum's strategy worked. The new Halloween was quite successful, winning over a lot of critics and making a strong box office showing as well. It did so well that at least one sequel is on the way, possibly more.

    John Carpenter himself says in the interview that he prefers the remakes or reboots that don't necessarily involve him. As the writer of the original film, anybody who wants to remake it needs to pay him, and he doesn't have to do any work. It's hard to argue, that's a pretty good gig

    However, while making money is nice, sometimes you also want to make a good movie, and it seems John Carpenter's ego won out. Of course, Carpenter doesn't take sole credit for making the new Halloween good. He also sings the praises of the film's star Jamie Lee Curtis.

    She’s just awesome. She matured as an actress, and she’s just terrific. Jamie is truly a force of nature. She must be dealt with.

    Halloween fans will need to deal with her again, as she's expected to return for the sequel to Halloween that is clearly on the way. It appears that John Carpenter is willing to get off his ass to make the sequel great as well.

    You motherfucker, I was about to do exactly this. I hate scary movies, for the record, and I would watch the most terrifying film of 2019 before willfully surrounding myself with swifties, furries, and furry-curious.
