  1. I haven’t watched Joyride in so long. I think I’ll give it a watch. I might still have my promotional shirt from Blockbuster Video somewhere for it.

    I also love The Glass House with Leelee Sobieski. It’s a simple suspense movie but Ive always enjoyed it.

  2. Erm I also just found out that there are 3 other variations of Cabin Fever? I never been knew.

    Any good? The first was fun for me and I was at that point in my life where I was having that white straight American frat boy jock curse that I’ll watch anything with that stereotypical character in it, especially if they attempt to have sex snd then gets brutally murdered. KIII.
  3. Hell House LLC: The Director's Cut was just released. Checking it out now.

    Ooh let us know if it’s worth watching!

    Any foreign horror recommendations aside from the Japanese and Korean ones mentioned a couple pages back, ladies? I’ve watched (most) of those and need to add some more to my queue.

    Whenever someone asks for foreign horror, I always recommend La Casa Del Fin De Los Tiempos (2013, dir. Alejandro Hidalgo) and El Orfanato (2007, dir. J. A. Bayona). They're both in Spanish and I love them both. They both trail a bit on the cliches, but overall, the endings more than make up for their faults.

    La Casa Del Fin De Los Tiempos is the first Venezuelan horror film ever and I think it continues to be the only one since the Venezuelan film industry is pretty quiet. I haven't seen this one for a while, it's definitely due a rewatch, but I genuinely cannot forget that ending and it's why I always recommend it. It's on Amazon Prime for those in the US.

    El Orfananto is a Spanish horror film which is exquisite. I'm fairly certain a lot of people may have seen it or at least heard of it since it was produced by Guillermo Del Toro. This is, quite possibly, the most emotionally affecting horror film I've ever seen. I would say this is the film that got me obsessed with the genre. I couldn't find any legal streaming links for this one in the US, but it's on Netflix in some European countries.

  6. Oh yes The Ophanage is absolutely astounding.
  7. I don’t think I could bring myself to watch the Castle Freak remake. The original scared me to death as a kid.

  8. El espinazo del diablo (The Devil's Backbone) 2001 , great film

  10. Yeah I remember finding the Freak in Castle Freak actually kinda scary but that looks pretty mediocre.

    Thank you, sis! Much appreciated. I think I’ll check out La Casa tonight and I’m sure I can find the second one...somewhere. I read the plots for both and they sound right up my alley.

  12. OH WOW. The Dark & The Wicked was beautifully bleak and devastating.

    I enjoyed it. The brother's acting is top notch and a ZAD.

    Marin Ireland's acting deserves an award.

  13. These sequences from Prince of Darkness hold up insanely well. They really feel like an actual nightmare.

  14. She’s watching Run now. Not exactly horror per se more thriller but there’s this one scene.


    It was masterfully done.

  15. It's a toss-up between those dreams or Alice Copper impaling that guy on a broken bike as most memorable scene.
  16. In short, the Director's Cut of Hell House LLC is definitely not worth watching. The added scenes only add to the goofy quality that comes through in the sequels and is less apparent in the original.

    Hopefully the upcoming Abaddon series keeps it simple.

  17. Run gave me Lifetime movie teas so of course I enjoyed it.

  18. This is exactly why it appealed to me. Is it a good movie? No. Is there anything remotely surprising or shocking about it? Absolutely not. Is it a ridiculous, mindless riot anchored by wonderfully hammy performances? Yes ma’am.

    Also love that they actually cast a wheelchair-bound actress for the part.

  19. About 40 minutes into Run and it's a campy mess. I love it!

  20. It sounds like the sister movie to 'Hush' (Jessica Lange).
