I think it is one of the best horror flicks of the century.


FWIW, I want to apologize.
My response to the Midnight Meat Train 7 years ago with an early "oinking" was completely misplaced, in error, and unwarranted.

IIRC, I implied the opening scene on the train of what seemed like 10 gallons of blood on the floor of the car was a cheap, exploitive, and just plain dumb attempt to shock an audience.
Therefore: I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.
This movie is pure horror from a director who really got what Clive Barker was thinking.

IIRC, there has been at least 2 different releases of Predator.
Although the sound is great on both, the video is very different.
I finally managed to get a release of decent video in my collection (I might have imported it from somewhere).

You used to be able to get both the older blu ray of Predator-pre DNR as well the more recent versions. Video wise they are a mixed bag, the DNR'd one has less/no film grain but has greater clarity is some of the distance shots.

Agreed....very frustrating.
I have both releases, BTW.


The 30 year anniversary is coming up for P1 in 2017.
No doubt we will be getting a new release.

Olivia Wilde rises from the dead in "The Lazarus Effect" which I watched last night. OK, but not great. Followed it by "The Guest" on Netflix which is a good thriller with Halloween overtones.

Regarding Sharknados here's the trailer for Ferrante's first film "Boo":

Being that it is cheesy movie season Cheese Zombies should be the perfect snack.

We'll see if you "oink" it or not. Another film that loses steam in the third act. It also has Mark Duplass from "Creep" and Evan Peters from "American Horror Story."

"Boo" is available on Hulu:

Episode 8 of "Hannibal" and maybe the next episode of "Ray Donovan" if available though it's probably a "next dayer".

I have been watching some of the dumb fun movies on Sci-Fi (Lavantula, Shark vs. X etc) and I caught Creep yesterday afternoon. I will say this movie is pretty damn good, funny and unsettling. The payoff is pretty good if you can sit through the whole movie. This might need a second viewing in October!

My DVR is bursting at the seems with these Syfy classics. Just recorded Mega Shark vs. Kolossus last night. I can't keep up with these modern day masterpieces. Still have It Follows I need to watch.

I really liked this movie as well!

We all come back to films that we really didn't like but we appreciate them later. I used to really loath Alien cubed, but I appreciate the movie for what it is on its own. It is no way better than the first two films but the sets and the acting are really good.


I finally got my Predator BD (funny I never owned it on BD) and although the film is DNRd to heck, it still looks pretty decent! The sound though, for a 1987 film is phenomenal! Best $5 dollars I spent this month! I think to myself would a movie like the first Predator ever be made these days?
Love me some Predator! 2nd one was a little hokie, with Gary Busey, to me at first but now I really enjoy it. 3rd one is growing on me as well. Helps that there is not a ton of decent scifi/horror creature features any more. Have to enjoy what there is.

Agreed, Midnight Meat Train was a nice surprise. From the title I thought it would be horrible, but was very well done.

I just watched this last night. I have always had a, err, soft spot for miss Wilde but this was pretty uninspiring stuff. I like Evan Peters from American Horror story as well. This needed some back story, and not the little girl angle. Really needed the eccentric, authority on people-coming-back-from-the-dead character to miraculously find out about the experiments and show up at the lab before it was locked down. Needed something to lend some weight to the potential entitiy that was now in the lab etc etc. But no, so it ends like a back to school special movie.
I give it 2 Olivia Wilde low waisted jean zombies.

As I was watching Predator, I was thinking "man this was made in 1987?!" and I didn't appreciate it as much (I was only 11) then, even though I thought it was very cool at the time. I mean just look at the creature design when the Predator took his mask off. To me it is the Predator and not a man in a suit. I really appreciate these films now that I can look at them again and remember how good these films still hold up today.

I need to buy the other 2 Predator movies because they are both fun, not as good as the first one, but fun none the less.

Yeah, I think these still hold up today because there were quality production values in the making of this. Back then, it was ok to have a good director/writer involved with these kinds of movies with STORY and ACTING still being a main component. Now, it is more often a lesser director working on a genre film, or the director/writer are too caught up in special effects to put the necessary care into the rest of the movie. Even a quality director like Ridley Scott still screwed the pooch on a few key elements of Prometheus. What should have been a classic, like Predator etc, turned into a flawed, uneven movie.

It's a classic of the genre.

IIRC, Amazon has all 3 movies in a BD set for 15 bucks...

Showtime on Hulu is operatin' like HGO Go does and it had the new episode of Ray Donovan last night the same time it showed on cable. And after that I had a wee bit of Ireland with "From the Dark" available on Netflix. Ah, finally a decent horror film. Four broken light bulbs.

Well, "The Lazarus Effect" is rated PG-13.

Definitely worth a watch.
I watched What We Do In The Shadows last night. I thought it was very good but I had an issue with Jemaine Clement (Vladislav). I really like him and he did a great job, but he also does the voice of Hanna's horse in the DirecTV commercials. Every time he talked I thought of Hannah Davis on a beach in a bikini. I'm not saying it was an unpleasant distraction, but still a distraction.

I also believe they made a mistake by putting Rhys Darby in a limited role. That guy is incredibly funny.

Didnt have the wonderment moments of the original, but in reality you can only get that once. Overall i enjoyed it a lot. Still thought i liked the first one better, but this is worth seeing for sure. Saw it in 3D.

Today i am going to see Terminator Genysis. Would that be considered a horror movie? I love Arnie and the Terminator movies, i am lucky my theater still has it, and in 3D just like the Jurassic one i saw yesterday. Nice to get out of the house a little that doesnt relate going to doctors or hospitals for my wife. Things still rough there, and will continue to be, but at least i can leave her for an afternoon at this point no problem.

never take life seriously
