  1. Not sure the editing of this trailer is doing the film any favours but I am rooting for this. The theatre production was a scream (literally)

  2. I love Martin Freeman.
  3. I quite like the look of that. good the trailer doesn't give too much away. The UK can make great TV series it's about time we make more great films, as very few of them are any good.

  4. Wish Upon was silly fun; the sheer stupidity of the character took a lot from it, and the obvs PG-13 toning down, but as far as Final Destination rip-offs go, it was alright. I loved when she slapped the bitchy girl in the cafeteria.
  5. "Today marks the start of production of Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax’s Halloween and we wanted to share some news about several rising young talents that have recently joined the cast. Ginny Gardner (Marvel’s Runaways, Secrets and Lies, Glee), Miles Robbins (Mozart in the Jungle, My Friend Dahmer), Dylan Arnold (Mudbound, Laggies, When We Rise), Drew Scheid (Stranger Things, The War with Grandpa), have all joined the cast playing school friends of Andi Matichak’s (Replicate, Underground, Orange Is the New Black) character, Allyson.''

  6. Are they just calling it Halloween?

    "Here's our direct sequel to Halloween... Halloween!"

  7. I’m so excited for this I’m getting palpitations.
  8. They really went with all nobodies outside of Jamie it looks like.

  9. "HALLOWEEN H40: 40 Years Later (Yes, It's Been That Long)" for the win.

    I wonder if they actually will bother to give it a subtitle or something? Kind of funny, in a way, how as far as we knew, the cancelled "Friday..." was also going to just be called "Friday the 13th."
    Let's just be thankful Zac Efron isn't involved.

  10. I hope they give it another title as that will be the third film named 'Halloween'. I did like 'Halloween Returns' as I like the idea they seem to be dropping the 2, 3, 4 etc

  12. I like the logo!
  13. I like that, I think having too many well known actors can be a bit distracting. It's not the sequel to Mamma Mia and needs to concentrate on being a genuine follow up to the original. It looks like Blumhouse are also trying to get the Friday The 13th Reboot done too and if this one is well received, it will probably happen.

  14. Judy Greer isn't a nobody but yeah not heard of the rest of them, maybe I'll recognise a few. Still extremely excited for it.

  15. Fuck this film:


    • Remake of grim 1982 flick
    • Cover quote is word-for-word same as one I saw on the box of another British slasher flick from last year (what does "mind numbingly terrifying" even mean???)
    • Four female characters - only the two who engage in lesbian action (*sigh*) are murdered, the straight girls get to live
    • Fuck this straight-guys-like-girl-on-girl-action nonsense

  16. There's a remake of Inside (french extreme horror film) that popped up in my VOD recommendations. I had no idea they were remaking it. Anyone have any tea on it or how it turned out?
  17. I read a review that claimed it was well acted, but less violent
    and supposedly has a happy ending

    And that’s all I needed to read.

  18. Playing catchup with recent releases, I sort of binged on a few last week.

    Happy Death Day - Great fun, nice ,mix of comedy & horror and totally carried brilliantly by lead Jessica Rothe.

    Wish Upon - Fun and well done but very predictable, although I understand that most horror fans can guess what's coming next in these type of films.

    Flatliners (2017) - Pretty much a copy of the original but without the big stars and better production value. It passed the time but seemed and complete waste of time.

    Leatherface - Not bad but a total missed opportunity to make something really good. It felt like a toned down version of the 'The Devil Rejects'. I can't say it was awful but nothing to recommend.

    Red Christmas - Quite nasty, low (ish) budget, uncomfortable tone to the film. It did have some good deaths and almost touched on some of that aussie humour but not doing it properly. They could have made it more early Peter Jackson but apart from Dee Wallace, I didn't give a shit about any of the characters.
