  1. The worst part of the trailer is that version of I Think We're Alone Now makes me bop every. single. time.

  2. I don't think I'd enjoy the trailer at all if it didn't include the Tiffany track. As is, looks like a lot of fun.

  3. The whole trailer park setting has me hooked.

  4. I think that's a given in most of these movies anyway, you can tell in first 5 minutes who will survive the longest.

    I think it's looks great, pretty much what I hoped for.

  5. I still think it would've been awesome if they'd done one of those trailer mix covers of it, like this version of Born to be Wild, but regardless, amazing.
    Just think: we're approaching a point where songs from the mid/late-90's (and beyond) are gonna be used like this. I await the arrival of a future horror flick about an evil djinn to the tune of Genie in a Bottle (I guess they could use Genie 2.0 for a slightly creepier effect). Or a teen slasher - Hit me *stab* Baby *decapitation* One more *grabbed and dragged into darkness* Time! *aaaiiieee!*

  6. Like, it could be the scariest imagery in the world but if my bussy is bopping, it's bopping.

  7. This show is amazing. It kind of reminds me of a teenage version of Dexter.

     
  8. The Tiffany version? Girls Aloud were robbed!

  9. I'm starting Wolf Creek season 2 and I'm not sure I can do it nn. The characters all seem likeable and I don't want to see them get butchered.
    It's weird. The older I get, the less I can stomach gore/violence.

  10. The Cult Films 4K remaster of Suspiria is STUNNING. It’s the best I’ve ever seen it look, and the sound mix is insanely good.
     
  11. Exactly this.

    But you’ll be screaming at them to run faster, hit harder, and yes, mucho heartbreak.

  12. They really need to end the Insidious films. I liked the first two but no more please.

  13. I still think the DVD remaster was one of the best I've ever seen; I can only imagine what a 4K Blu-ray has done for its visuals - and that unnerving as fuck Goblin score. Alas, me without a 4K player.

    Speaking of, I hope they release a teaser soon for the remake. I can't help but be intrigued by it since they're claiming to not just be doing a shot-for-shot colour explosion flick. Also, Tilda Swinton in a horror movie.

  14. I just finished season two of Wolf Creek and I think I can wholeheartedly say that it's my favourite contribution to the franchise, films and TV seasons considered. Combined so much of the dread of the first with the thrills of the second films, and maintained the best parts of the first season of the TV series (solid writing, likable characters, etc.) while moving at a more succinct pace.

  15. You’re in luck! The initial release is dual format, with both dvd and regular blu Ray, which contains the 4K scan (so does the dvd but won’t be quite as impressive.)

    The actual 4K UHD disc isn’t out for a few months and is a result of a crowdfunding campaign they ran last year. Happily they met both their original goal and both stretch goals so have commissioned a whole new disc of extras. I don’t have a 4K player or tv either, but it’s good to have a ‘futureproofed’ copy as it were.

    Totally with you on the remake too. I’ve either loved or greatly liked everything Luca Guadagino has done so far, and if anyone can nail the tone it’s him. And that cast.
     
  16. I saw Suspiria in the cinemas in the pre-Blu ray showings and as @silkandskin states - it's stunning. The Goblin score was ramped up on the soundtrack and sounded spectacular. And also agree with @ChiquitaPlantain that the Suspiria DVD remaster looked great. I love the three-disc set that was released a long time ago, with the Goblin soundtrack as the third disc. It's actually a beautiful DVD set, back when DVD releases were treated with respect.

    I'm thinking of doing a Black Christmas shooting locations tour here in Toronto. I wish I had done it earlier when we had fresh snow. Now the temperatures are rising and the snow is turning to slush. I think it will be cool to see if any of the locations still exist. The snow would add to the effect...
     
  17. I just got the Blu Ray/DVD combo that was released recently from that 4K transfer. I only have Blu Ray but a 4K TV and have to say even from that the picture was absolutely stunning. It's exactly how the film should be seen with that vibrant stunning red theme throughout. It was like I was watching something that had just been made. The sound through my soundbar was amazing too. I was mesmerized watching it, as I have only ever seen on DVD on a SD television before.

  18. OH EM GEE, I must be living under a rock, didn't know that they turned this into a TV series, I've had Wolf Creek on my to-watch list for the longest time but I've never came round to it. Before I dive in to the TV version, do I need to watch the movies 1 and 2 first?

  19. I preferred the first season's approach of keeping Mick in the background, he's become a bit of a Freddy Krueger character now, but this was still 1000 times better than the likes of - ugh - Scream Queens.

    Amazing characters you actually root for, postcard shots of the outback, top tier performances all around, the aboriginal guys saying the land was 'bad'. My main problems were...

    - Cars that won't start
    - Guns that aren't ready to fire
    - She hits him once with a rock and then hesitates finishing him off
    - The couple who opt to sacrifice themselves could have waited for Mick to come back, thus ensuring he went up in flames with them
    - That he can throw a knife from a gazillion feet away and hit a target
    - The aboriginal guy who had the power to hurt him stopped singing and got shot!!!
    - Mick's offed about 60 odd people, mostly tourists, there's no way there wouldn't be a huge manhunt underway
    - The twist with Brian - I couldn't understand how he 'played them'? He simply didn't tell them he was an ex-con?? I had to rewind that explanation because I didn't understand what they were getting at when he mentioned the news clippings and being bait?
     
  20. I was very impressed with both seasons. You don't need to watch the films as they series, other than Mick, concentrate on different characters. There was talk of a 3rd film, which should follow on from the series.
