  1. the Weimar Beer Belly

    Really solid, spooky, crawling kind of film. It reminded me of RELIC a bit (at least in pace and atmosphere)

    Oh I highly suggest getting Paramount + because they finally added a proper horror selection and there are some great old horror films available now

    I just signed up for a free trial. Was hoping it’d have all the Friday the 13ths but sadly there are none :tebow:

    Don’t despair, take advantage of the amazing Joe Bob Briggs content and all the old Italian horror on there

    I believe they are on Hulu. Like Beer Belly said, wander around some, there is fantastic stuff all over on there.

    Weird. I have Hulu and use a family member’s Starz login and I swear I couldn’t find any of them for free. Will check again tonight.

    Joe Bob Briggs is amazing. The little stories and tangents he goes off into are hilarious and it’s staggering how much random movie info he has packed in his brain.

    Finally got around to watching THE EMPTY MAN. What a solid, strange, special film. It feels like an A24 film

    Just watched The Dark and the Wicked and I also enjoyed it. Gave off some Hereditary vibes.

    Anyone else seen Old yet? :huh:

    Saw it this morning. Deeply flawed movie which is a shame because it could have been one of MNS's absolute best with a tighter script and some better performances by some of the cast. I wanted to slap a few of them - there was more wood in this than a John Holmes flick. :bang:

    I watched #Alive last night on Netflix. Neat little Korean zombie movie about a guy surrounded by zombies in his apartment building.

    Solid flick. A bit too drawn out at times but a well constructed concept.

    Didn't like the CGI manifestation near the end

    It sucked to me as a fan of the Saw series. Chris Rock's acting was really weird to me for some reason.

    Not sure where else to post, but I’m caught up on the tv show Evil. While it’s nothing amazing, it’s good enough and I enjoy the premise. Can watch on paramount +

    That’s kinda disappointing. Reviews I’ve seen have been pretty up and down.

    Hoping Malignant delivers.

    Let us know how it is. I don’t have HBO, so I may go see it in the theaters. I was pumped for a Candyman then it got meh reviews, so I’m hoping this delivers.

    I was really disappointed by it (Candyman). Poor pacing, zero scares & too much off-screen killing. The social commentary was over the top too, but probably the least of this movie's problems.

    James Wan hasn't made a great horror movie since The Conjuring, so that's expected imo.

    The Blackwell Ghost is on Amazon Prime, only 60 minutes. Was an interesting watch.

    Apparently there are four sequels as well, but looks like they are only available as rentals

    I thought it did a really good job creating a sense of horror on a really low budget production. Was considerably better than that dumbass Malignant movie.
