Just been to see A Quiet Place. Super intense and brilliant acting, really enjoyed it
I watched this again tonight and I really hope the new one this year has a moment as iconic as when Laurie and Michael come face to face through the circular window. Because CHILLS every time.
I absolutely love H20 and will always defend it from people who slate it. And yes, those last 20 minutes are incredible. That final shot of Laurie standing their with the axe when the original music kicks in will stay with me forever.
I'm expecting the new film to follow the same pattern that this and the first film did with the last act being a showdown between Michael and Laurie. One thing I'm really intrigued about, since this is a new timeline, is how different Laurie will be from the version in H20.
It looks at least she will resemble physically the original Laurie than H20, where she had that short crop that JLC rocks so well.
I have a feeling she's going to be a bit more introverted/mellow (at least outwardly) than she was in H20.
I thought she had the long hair in the promo pics I saw? Unless that was just for media promo and not on the actual set.
I think Laurie is going to be more mellow and not defined by Halloween ‘78 like H20 Laurie was, ‘98 Laurie was terrified because she was attacked in the original, then stalked again and attacked in the hospital then to find out Michael Myers was her brother.
In the new timeline, Laurie was attacked for 20 minutes by an intruder and yes while that would be traumatic along with losing two friends, I definetly think it’s something you could resolve within yourself and put behind you to have a normal, carefree life in a way H20 Laurie could not.
As long as she hasn’t been writing self help books for forty years!
Yes, that's what I said. She looks like the original Laurie not the H20 one.
Oops. I must be tired, ignore me.
Kind of depressing seeing on Facebook that on this day in 2011 I was off to watch Scream 4 and so friggin excited.
I dragged my whole family into the (mostly empty) cinema with me.
Scream 4 is great though. Wes Craven’s clear disdain for teenagers makes it an absolute...scream.
So fucking annoying that studios still never learn to just leave the experts to do it and fucked over Kevin Williamson thus costing us a potential ‘Scream 5’ and ‘6’.
What could have been....
I loved Scream 4 regardless and saw it twice at the cinema.
On a side note I watched A Quiet Place earlier and although I liked it a lot I didn't love it as much as I'd expected. It felt quite restrained considering they could have really gone for it a bit more with some of the scares.
Just back from seeing Ghost Stories. Such brilliant little ‘look again’ creepy touches in the corners of the screen. And unexplained moments that linger (the parents in the kitchen with the running tap was surprisingly eerie). Having seen the stage version ages ago, I’m glad it wasn’t a complete retread either.
I’ve never heard of Ghost Stories until you guys brought it up. Are there plans to release it in the US?
It's impressive how little we know about "Hallow2018" (how's that for a title?) thus far. I wouldn't be surprised if we get a teaser soon-ish (maybe next month?); Mr. Blum himself recently saw the first rough cut of it. Although Blumhouse sometimes don't release trailers until the last minute, I think they'll probably be planning a long promo campaign for this one, being that it's a franchise movie with a 40 year legacy/anniversary, and it's been almost 10 years since the last one - more, actually, if you discount the Zombie remakes altogether.
Although, of course, I primarily want it to be a good film, I really hope it's a bit of a 'moment', pop culturally speaking. I'm not expecting, like, "IT" impact or anything, but I'd hate for it to just come and go, like "eh, whatever."
It'd be nice to get a teaser/mini trailer soon.
Scream 3 & 4 are shit. The Scream franchise ended with Scream 2.
