  1. Scream 4 is definitely not shit, I love it. Scream 3? Meh, it has some moments but it's the weakest one.
  2. I love Scream 4. It was a victim of executive meddling for sure, and the middle third is a bit slack, but it's still great.

    I was watching the Friday the 13th fan-film Never Hike Alone earlier and having orgasms over how good it is, and how faithful to the general feel of the movies they've made it - if this was how they did the TV series - little vignettes about schmucks who encounter Jay - I'd be on board.

  3. Scream 4 was everything for a life long fan of the franchise who felt 3 was not a worthy finale. I saw it in theaters three times and each one was such a rush. Amazing cast (Hayden and baby zaddy Nico especially), some Scream Franchise best-deaths (Olivia), amazing nods to the original (Kirby's phone call trivia), and a fun whodunnit that didn't involve faking ones' own death or retconning prior films.

  4. So Scream Unseen next week at Odeon could be Hereditary which is very exciting.
  5. Yes, Scream 4 was so great. I don't know what happened during its development, but I do wish it did better...then again, I guess slashers just aren't in vogue right now unless you're Happy Death Day, which I loved so much.

    I saw A Quiet Place last night and it was so great. Really original. The monsters were scarier when you saw less of them (which is always the case), but I loved the family so much, especially the daughter.

    I'm sure it would do a lot better if it was released today. Emma Roberts, Nico Tortorella, Anthony Anderson, and even Alison Brie are much bigger stars now than they were when filming.

  7. "Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle" is kind of great. It's easy to play but fairly challenging at the same time (that said, I'm not au fait with puzzle games) and it feels like such a love letter to the franchise made by people who know it well. The cutesy graphics mixed with the gory kills is awesome, and there are so many great little touches, like Mrs. Voorhees' decapitated head providing hints and solutions, a retro VHS-style rewind function, the fact that there's a menu option to play the 'Ki-Ki-Ki Ma-Ma-Ma' chant, and the 'boss' of each level being announced as the 'FINAL GIRL!' or 'FINAL BOY!' (yes, boys too!). Plus it's free.

    I'm thinking I might purchase the game's predecessor at some point, "Slayaway Camp."

  9. That's amazing!!!

    Also amazing is Never Hike Alone - seriously it's better than several of the movies, so well done and really captures the creepy atmos of the older ones.
  10. Sleepaway Camp is good, tacky fun. One my random favorites. I love that one line, "She's every carpenter's dream! Flat as a board AND NEEDS A SCREW!" *insert angry emoji*

    Judy was a goddess.

    Do we really discuss Valentine that much!? haa.

    It was literally the only film that scared me as a kid. My mom wouldn't let me sleep with the door closed and I would always imagine he's aiming his arrow at me through the door.

  15. The mask used in Valentine is one of my favorites horror masks ever

  16. Can you believe Jane Krawkowski almost played Judy in Sleepaway Camp?! That would have been everything.
    ChiquitaPlantain, Terminus and vague like this.
  17. Incidentally I'm watching I Know What You Did Last Summer now. Has it ever been reissued on DVD - the letterbox formatting is so annoying and there are zero extras.

    Side note: this remains my absolute favorite line in any film.

    Sidney: Yea? Well, you're forgetting one thing about Billy Loomis.
    Mickey: What's that?
    Sidney: I fucking killed him!

    Her delivery was so good.
  19. Scream 2 actually has so many iconic scenes;

    Sarah Michelle Gellar's chase/kill scene.

    The first time Sidney is attacked in the house and the camera moves in for a close-up. She has tears in her eyes at the realisation that it's happening all over again. Great moment.

    The scene with Gale being chased by the killer and hiding in the soundproof room/Dewey being stabbed.
  20. A Quiet Place was everything I wanted it to be. An instant classic.
