Horror films

He/They
The Initiation was great! It wasn't overly scary but it had some creepy moments
like someone lurking in the wardrobe - that was good
and fairly likeable characters. I really liked Ralph - the jokey twat in horror is usually really annoying but he was quite sweet. Poor Marcia though! Peter was quite hot as well and is a total silver fox on his IMDb pic now!
It has pacing issues like a lot of 80's slashers, it should not take as long as it does to get them locked in the mall,
But it's a lot of fun

Just watched this again recently as I hadn't seen since it was first released. I'd forgotten how great it was. Got to be one of the best horror remakes.

Maybe I should watch it again as I loathed it, it was too sadistic.

I watched Tenebre again, it is quite trashy compared to Dario's earlier films. But the death scenes are great. It was quite camp and I loved the synth-heavy score inspired by rock and disco.

Did you guess the twist though?

The characters are really nicely drawn for a change, we get some depth before they're cruelly dispatched.

No. And it was so camp. Daphne Zuniga (Kelly) reminded me of a cross between Heather Langenkamp and Sigrid.

What the hell was that mall though?! A place that size with about 15 floors had one night security guard?! It was such an intriguing place. IMDb tells me it's the Dallas Market Center. It doesn't look like any mall I've ever been to!
 
I need to rewatch The Menu with altered expectations. I did like it a lot but kept waiting for it to boil over into full horror territory and it never really did. Thinking of it primarily a dark comedy is the best way to enjoy, I'd say.

Yeah, it's a near-perfect satirical dark comedy, but I wouldn't consider it horror in the slightest.
 
I’ve watched You Might Be The Killer today but it hasn’t really held my attention and I just looked up to see it’s still on and thought “fucking hell, how long is this” - I checked and it’s 1hr 32. Not a great sign!

Watched Warning Signs from 1985. Overall it was solid if a little slow. Kathleen Quinlan slayed as usual. Speaking of that queen I was obsessed with this movie as kid even though it's probably awful



"They have 9 lives. We only have one." Iconic tagline though.

Strays is great fun for a TV movie, my Mum let me stay up and watch it when it was on some movie channel back in the early 90's.
Love a killer cat film, the first story in The Uncanny may never be beaten for me
 
So scrolling through the horror section on HBO Max I stumbled upon a 5 minute short film called "The Big Shave" I said why not it's only 5 minutes. As someone who always gets anxious during shaving scenes in tv/movies this was hard to sit through. Jesus christ.

Then I do some research and it was directed by Martin Scorsese!
