  1. I used to love finding old Video Nasties and them turning out to be tame af.

    Some had some dodgy moments though. I remember a slo-mo axe murder over classical music that was virtually pornographic in its approach in an otherwise very through-the-motions slasher pic. That was the first time I worried that maybe some people do get off to it.

  2. I remember hanging out with my next-door neighbor bestie when I was eight and discovering "Evil Dead" and "Buio Omega" on a tape her dead-beat dad cobbled together off of rental VHS he had copied. Having one VCR was a luxury in those days, let alone two.
    Cheryl in the basement and the nail pulling and acid bath were scences that burned themselves into my retina, fucked up and epic at the same time.

  3. My boyfriend's mum gave me an iTunes card she couldn't use in the UK, so I decided to continue my horror journey. I bought Greta, The Wicker Man and...Goodnight Mommy.

    Nice knowing you all.
     
  4. The Wicker Man is one of the greatest horrors of all time, well done.
     
  5. Unless it's Amazon Prime who have often in the past had the crap remake instead, even though it listed the original (also with other films too)
     
  6. A bit of shameless promo here as I produced this reunion for one of my all-time favorite films.

  7. A trash classic of the Y2K era, and nothing remotely close to a horror film or even a thriller. It wants SO bad to be Wild Things, and fails on every level, but goodness if it isn’t hilarious.

    EXCLUSIVE: The Craft remake has found its leads. Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simoneand Zoey Luna are set to star in the Blumhouse and Columbia Pictures pic along with previously announced Cailee Spaeny. Zoe Lister-Jones is at the helm of the reimagining of the 1996 female-fronted, witch-themed cult classic.

    Blumhouse has unveiled the main four leads for the Craft remake.

    Can Blumhouse fuck off?
     
  10. If the Black Christmas trailer is anything to go by, I need Blumhouse to stop remaking things & focus on originals. We can have a new horror film about 4 teen witches without it having to be tied to The Craft.

  11. Yeah, a Craft remake is unneeded and some things should be kept untouched

    It’s disappointing because Blumhouse seemed to be building a great niche for relatively low budget (but financially successful) original horror. It’s a shame to see them going to the well of remakes when their entire MO was the opposite.

    The Craft was such an anomaly in the 90s. Low budget, female led and a total hit. They should be aiming to make a movie in the vein of The Craft, not... the actual remake of it.
     
  13. I don’t mind remakes so much. It’s not like the original doesn’t exist. I’ll go see it.

  14. Let’s bind Blumhouse from doing harm, harm against our faves and harm against themselves.
     
  15. Bring a book
     
  16. Blumhouse are probably the best chance of getting a Scream 5, so I'll just sit here and eat my food on this one.
     
  17. I’ve softened on the idea of remakes tbh, like @stuaw said, the originals are still there.

    However, Blumhouse’s recent trend of hiring women behind as well as in front of the camera shouldn’t be overlooked. In an industry (and genre) that often ignores women, I think it’s great that they’re being so inclusive.

    And realistically, remakes of beloved properties are a splashy way to get talent noticed, even if you don’t agree with them existing in the first place.
     
  18. I haven't seen it.
     
  19. I actually think The Craft could be updated well in today's times. It has more of a chance to be re-done well then Black Christmas which is such a specific kind of movie. I appreciate the female director also.
