Horror films

Speaking of books, the "Fear Street" revival is still ongoing:

New and old fans alike will be DYING to get their hands on the latest addition to master of horror R.L. Stine’s iconic Fear Street series!

Morgan Marks is the new girl—and nobody can stop talking about her.

She’s popular, smart, and beautiful. Everyone wants to be her friend.

But her past is veiled in mystery, and no one knows where exactly she came from.

Now Shadyside Homecoming is just around the corner. And Morgan’s dark secrets are about to be dug up for all the world to see.

Due out February/March next year. And the planned movies are still in the works. Fingers crossed one'll be based on the Shadyside Cheerleaders. Cinematic Icons waiting to happen.

The art just doesn't compare and takes away from the nostalgia factor a bit for me. It looks more cartoony than the (somewhat hilariously) dramatique art of the past Fear Street books.
 
Has anyone seen the new full length documentary on the Urban Legend 2 disc collectors edition blu-Ray from Scream Factory? And is it any good?

Also, can’t wait to get my hands on the new Valentine Blu! It’s about damn time.

I did watch the special feature on this release and although Scream decided to break it up into what I think was 15 or 16 segments (as in, one ends and you get brought back to the menu to play the next one) it was really great to hear 90% of the cast talk about it, and hear all the little stories like the director only getting the job because when he was trying to get the directing gig for IKWYDLS he shot a full trailer based on the script using nobody-Australian actors. Even though he didn't land that job, they used a lot of his ideas in the actual film and was remembered when looking for a director for Urban Legend.

Wow I didn’t know that! I saw that most (if not all) of the core cast had new interviews on it as well.
Im so excited to see it!
 
Love my boyfriend but my God is he a difficult watching-partner for The Haunting of Hill House:

"Is that Nell?"
"No, it's Theo."
-scene changes-
"Is that Nell?"
"No, it's all Theo this week."
"So who's she?"
"Still Theo, just a different time."
-scene changes-
"And her?"
"That's Nell."
"I thought Nell was dead?"
"She is, this is a flashback."
"So who's the other one?"
"Shirley, the older sister. There are three sisters."
"This show is stupid."

This is the best thing ever. I would watch a show with you two interacting and ruining series for each other.

I offered to watch Haunting on my own, as he's not big into horror, but he wanted to experience it, so here we are.

Elsewhere, finished The Witch / VVitch yesterday. It was unsettling, but I wasn't bowled over and only really felt sorry for the lead girl, the dog, horse, and goats.

But the lead girl
got to sell her soul to satan and fly naked around the woods. I consider that a victory!
 
Didn't think much of Bird Box. Actually the only interesting bit was when Tom had his arms out.

My initial theory on the force was that it was death coming to claim souls, but then you saw Gary with emerald green eyes?? Meh

I thought 'Bird Box' was damn good. It's definitely one of the best Netflix movies I have seen. It's what 'The Happening' should have been. Sandra Bullock was her usual excellent self and the tension was great.

I love the mystery, don't really need everything packaged neatly tied with a bow.

I agree. I have to say I enjoyed this a lot more than Hereditary or A Quiet Place but I'm probably alone there.

I liked Bird Box too. Wasn't perfect (I mean, imagine giving more screen-time to Machine Gun Kelly than Sarah Paulson), but it maintained a really nice sense of dread and unease. The glazed over eyes particularly made me uncomfortable.
