    Kinda random question here, but were any of you fans of The Conjuring? I noticed that it’s playing at one of the AMCs in town this weekend and thought about checking it out. I never did see it and it had pretty good reviews on Rotten Tomatoes when I looked it up there yesterday.

    The Conjuring is actually really solid. The worst thing about it is it spawned a shitty Conjuring universe.

    The Conjuring is great until the end. Cheesy, cliche happy endings to horror movies really annoy me though.

    Conjuring is worth the watch. Spooked me good when it came out.

    Conjuring's easily one of my favorite recent horror movies

    Hereditary, It Follows, Drag Me to Hell. Best horror movies in the past decade. (Drag Me to Hell is technically 11 years old, but I’ll let it past)

    One Cut of the Dead is more comedy than horror but way up there with the best of past decade or so. One of the most original movies I've seen.

    I'm not a horror film guy, gave Hereditary a try after James A. Janisse reviewed it.

    My goodness, what a movie. I feel like I missed quite a bit of apparitions/details throughout the movie. Need to do a rewatch.

    My 6yo somehow saw the Shining when away from me, she’s now watching the 4k disc and loving it, I’m both scared and happy.

    Worked from home this past week and I think I watched each of the Halloween movies like 2-3 times. The one with Paul Rudd is so bad. Part 4 has some great moments too but the little kids making fun of Jamie will forever be my favorite.

    I appreciate how hard they were swinging for the fences on Halloween 6. They were really trying something, it was just incomprehensible

    think I can watch through Halloween 5 and be reasonably satisfied, with 3 obviously falling in the so bad it's good category

    which reminds me I didn't see 3 at all this year :ohdear:

    Part 3 is way better as an adult then as a kid disappointed Michael Meyers wasn’t in the film. The death scenes are dope af. They melt a little kids head.

    All he does is drink beers and try to fuck. He was the same way in The Fog.

    the context of that scene makes it even funnier imo, like you'd think banging basically a stranger in that scenario would be one of the last things on her mind

    My guy only went with her to fuck. It’s one of the most absurd plot devices.

    Watched Halloween all the way through for the first time in a while Friday, it just never “scared” me.

    it is a movie that gets 100% better when you can see it as they did filming it so the new 4k transfer from the negative is just incredible. All the peeking in windows etc. just looks so real. Highly recommend if you do physical media still.

    Watched The Dark and the Wicked this past weekend. First 10-15 is a bit slow but a good jump scare about every 5 min after that with some pretty heavy scenes. Thought it was beautifully shot with the desolate scenery. Could see how some might not be into it but I can definitely see myself watching it again for some things I might have missed in the first viewing.

    Just finished and its a gut punch of a movie. Not like Hereditary at all but similar emotional intensity
