Sweet for a door prize and 4K to boot!

"Haunting of Cellblock 11" is a cheesy B ghost movie I watched on Hulu last night. Three HDV cassettes.

We were working with some testing on this back when it was known as Untitled S__ R___ Horror Project. The synopsis does sound..Eh... But when you dig in and find out it's the crew behind the last Evil Dead then it's get interesting. The final trailer for this was much better then what we saw. They also chose the right title.

I might have to check out Don't Breath when my kids go back to school! I really like Stephen Lang acting ability.

Shoot, his acting ability isn't nearly as impressive as how stacked this dude is. Didn't realize one could look that good at 64 yrs old!!


Seriously though, he did a very good job with his part. Although I think I could count his speaking lines on two hands, it definitely takes talent to pull off a blind character.

Nice door prize, AC. Lets break it in. I'll bring the chips. As far as movies go, it's been a real dry spell. Although Don't Breath looks pretty good.

The other day Instantwatcher listed a couple new horror films on Netflix, "American Poltergeist" and "The Poltergeist of Borely Forest". I may have seen the latter probably on Hulu. Funny thing was going to the Netflix links there was no ability to add it to my list. Also searching with the app does not turn up either title.

Dudes and dudettes I present one of the best of the year. If you like Found you will dig this.

Not strictly horror but more of a psychological thing it has plenty for the regulars here. See it.

Definitely an indie vibe, cheaper looking than It Follows.

Still upset over Steve. Things are emotional here with my wife fighting cancer.

I tried to lighten things up yesterday and finally watched Sharknado-4. As expected, campy and fun, but this one a little over the top, (duh, like the others werent). Enjoyed it for one watch, wouldnt watch again, number 2 in New York is still my fav Sharknado.

never take life seriously

Don't know if anyone has mentioned it but most sites with trailers have one up for 'Rings'. Comes out just before Halloween this year. Creepy, more in line with the first movie. Watch it on big tv.

I saw the trailer before Don't Breathe, the first one is still one of my favorites. Looks good...as long as they spare us CGI deers I guess I'll go to the theater for that one, I'll miss Naomi Watts though

Well, if you're comparing it to Found, I'm all over it. Speaking of Found, did anyone else get the chance to see Headless? I feel like I might be the only one who's seen it.

I played drums for years as a profession including in jazz groups. I enjoyed the movie but turning jazz bands and jazz drumming into a sport doesn't sit well with me.

Also not horror and you'll probably wonder if you stumbled into a Lifetime movie (though above that cut a bit) is "Return to Sender" on Netflix with Rosamund Pike and Nick Nolte. But the movie does go to the strange places approaching the horror genre. Four glasses of lemonade.

Here's a horror story. It's September 2nd. Where'd the summer go? I swear it was just June 1st yesterday. I think some evil scientist injected me with a time speed up serum.

Vudu has broken their offerings out into "storefronts" making it way easier to dial in on new stuff.

Return to Sender was pretty solid. Watched it sometime earlier this year.

Crazy, inconsistent weather and nonstop commitments made this summer a friggin blur. The only positive I can take from this is that October is right around the corner......oh and football is starting next week.
