Watching The Conjuring 2 again, it has a lot of creepy moments, but The Enfield Haunting TV series did the story so much better.
The Conjuring 2 had one great scene, which was when the girl's face, which was not in focus, started to shift into a demonic form while the audio tape was being played. Other than that, it was camp. Although we're all Just A Hole for Patrick Wilson. Also Vera is, of course, amazing.
Agree can't get into Halloween III one bit minus the score. A complete snooze fest.
Not all of us.
True, especially as I am old enough the remember the story in the papers. I was very young but was always interested in the supernatural.
Wasn’t the Enfield case the driver for Ghostwatch in 1992 as well?
That scared the hell outta me when it was on, and of course there was that viewer who committed suicide shortly after. Watching it now it’s like a Going Live Halloween special.
I found Conjuring 2 was okay. It wasn’t creepy or sinister enough for me. Something just didn’t click.
My partner and I are going to check out two indie horrors tonight: Rorscach and The Blackwell Ghost. I will report back.
Watched this fun hokey William Castle movie, kind of like Hitchcock's Spellbound but trashier. Barbara Stanwyck's last film role.
Finished the year watching the camp, trashy Lair Of The White Worm.
Feels like an appropriate gif.
Me starting the new year by reading 'Halloween III: Season of the Witch' slander:
I finally watched Doctor Sleep and as much as I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would, there’s one particular scene that I found so disturbing I almost turned it off.
Let me guess, Jacob Tremblay scene?
That’s the one, so uncomfortable, it’s hard to believe it was originally a lot more violent and Stephen King himself asked for it to be toned down.
I’m glad someone has finally validated my Patrick Wilson horn
That’s crazy about the murder scene in Doctor Sleep. The original scene is already so uncomfortable, and I’m sure must have been wayy weird to act. Jacob Tremblay is an incredible actor.
I didn’t go into Doctor Sleep with many expectations but I thought it was brilliant. Aside from being a little too long, it was great, and gave the perfect amount of reference to The Shining (which is one of my faves)
I've only seen the director's cut of Doctor Sleep, so I don't know how much it differs from the theatrical cut, but I remember
being so traumatized when we find out our hero left that toddler to starve to death after the mother OD's
that I switched off all emotions for the rest of the movie. Didn't even remember the Jacob Tremblay scene until you mentioned it.
Nevertheless, it's a very good movie.
The scene in the book is a lot worse, but it really adds to how terrifying and awful the True Knot are.
Watching Jack Frost now. I saw it once a long time ago when it first came out. A nice cheesy horror for this Sunday.
Edit: How did I forget Shannon Elizabeth was in this?
