Don't you guys think Amazon has a better selection of horror and maybe other genres compared to Netflix?

Right now yes. Netflix has been bad lately. If you like haunted house movies check out Dead Room, one of those under radar releases that's really great. It's probably the best thing Netflix has along with Darling.

This year Amazon has a bit more as far as Horror compared to NF. I could be wrong though.

Finally caught up... Looks like there's been some good horror-viewin so far. Hopefully everyone made it through the big wind in the east relatively unscathed.

My viewing this month is probably going to be a fairly mixed bag of different styles and genres including dark fantasy, SF, horror, mystery, suspense, disaster, animation, older films and other stuff, like this...



2. Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame (2010, BD, FTV)

This was pretty fun.

The first (and only) empress of China is about to be coronated, when the officials in charge of preparations begin to spontaneously combust. The empress has no choice but to turn to a former nemesis (detective Dee) to help solve the riddle of the mysterious deaths. Not really a horror film per se, but a pretty good murder mystery/action flick by Tsui Hark in the Sherlock Holmes mold, with alot of plot twists, crazy stunts, wire-fu, and some very mean-tempered ungulates. Not a buy for me, but a good rental.



There's also a 2013 prequel that I haven't seen called Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon.

I started to watch Darling on Netflix and put it on hold because the movie made the entire house rattle. I mean the room is 5200cf and while I've experienced near field before this time other rooms like the kids room and dining room rattled the walls and picture frames. Has anyone seen this movie? I plan on watching it completely when it's not late to not wake up family.

Great. Overall the score was fantastic considering the movie is very low on the dialogue. Definitely worth a watch another under the radar surprise.

Yeah like I said I had to put it on hold after the really low frequency because the kids woke up. I mean I was watching it at mv -25. I'd hate to see what would have happened even lower.

11. Terror Train
A fraternity prank taken way to far sets up a revenge scenario three years later, as a costume party on a moving train becomes the perfect setting to bump off college kids. Terror Train was pitched as "Halloween on a train", and while it's not nearly as classic as Halloween, it does have a young Jamie Lee Curtis and a masked killer. What's unique about this killer is that his mask is always changing--it's a costume party so he always dons the costume of the last victim.

In addition, we get none other than a young David Copperfield playing a magician (what else) who dazzles his audience with several illusions and close-up magic, for no other reason than the fact that one of the producers liked magic. Still, it somehow works given the theme of the film that nothing is as it seems, and we're kept guessing right up until the final reveal, which is pretty spectacular.

My only complaint about this movie is that it tends to lag in the middle third when the students realize they are being bumped off one by one. Instead of ramping up the action, everything seems to just slow down as the train conductor takes more control of the plot. Things pick up again in the final third when the reigns are returned to Jamie Lee Curtis and the suddenly panicky pretty boy heel Hart Bochner. 80's-tastic horror!

3 out of 5 stars.

Yep, same here. I used to ride my bike all over town as a grade schooler, no helmet or even a cell phone.


As a coach for grade school age girls, and up, we have to fill out back ground checks, sign extensive behavioral guidelines and pass concussion training. It's all good. You can't be too safe with kids but is way more legislation than what I had in youth sports -and no guarantee that the adults can't still be monsters.


#17 Pandemic 2016 FTV. The good news is this stars Rachel Nichols. The bad news is she wears a bulky cdc suit for most of the movie. The first hour was better than I thought it would be. A lot of recognizable actors and more brutality than I expected. However, poor writing finally catches up for the last act as repeated head scratching moves by the players defeat my ability to care. 3 Head Pummeling Zombies

I saw this at original release and thought it was pretty lame. I think I watched this for last years Horrorfest and the 80's-tastic vibe made it funner than I remembered. Lol.

Darling was a fine movie, agreed. I watched it in either Aug or Sept and have been contemplating giving it a second viewing this month so that my wife can check it out as well. With regard to the LFE, I'm not sure as I was using the B system that doesn't crank out gobs of bass like the A system does. After seeing your comments Asere, I'll definitely watch it in the appropriate setup next time.


Because time is limited, I'll just throw out a quick list of what I've watched in the last 5 days or so...short reviews will come at a later time.


-Murder Party
-Neon Demon
-Orphan
-The Conjuring
-The Conjuring 2 (but only about halfway through due to time constraints((it was 3 AM at that point))...will be rewatching later)
-The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original version)
-Father's Day (I probably shouldn't even list this as I started it last night but fell asleep about 15 mins in....it was a long day) Will finish it tonight, but it depends on whether or not we're doing the Group Watch of The Thing. That was scheduled for today right??

Looks like you have a nice list there. I bought Neon Demon but haven't seen it yet. Did you like it?
And yes please watch Darling with your other set up. It was unbelievable.

You talking about Mrs. Roth? I rented the DVD at Redbox and it was there until recently. They actually have "Conjuring 2" BD at three locations locally as of today.

We're watching "The Thing" tonight right?

Last night was "What We Become", a Danish zombie movie available on Netflix. It's quite bleak compared to a lot of Hollywood zombie films. Three and a half cups of rabbit stew.

We could post pone till everyone has a copy. But I don't think you have the Shout! Factory copy to partake.


Also did we decide on the Conjuring 2 date?


Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension. I too a cue from Darth and watched this via Amazon. I know this film gets heat because you can see the demon. I thought it was great and about time in the series for something new. This one definitely brings in the creep watching this at night! 3 Camcorders


The Conjuring, This movie in my opinion is probably one of the best Horror flicks of the past few years! I know tall order but James Wan really cares about the story, characters and the way the movie is shot! Also this film being really close to a real horror experience! Other than Poltergeist, this is the other film that makes my hair stand up. Maybe because this story is true! Whatever the case, great story telling and the audio will suck you in! 5 Mad Demons!!!!

That is a badass theater! I would actually venture out to see that if I was in CA! You know with everyone being a fan of the movie it will be a great experience!

Watched 'Phantasm:Ravager'. What can I say "The Tall Man" is back and he's brought his flying silver spheres with him. Rating: 3 high speed sphere pursuits.

Yeah, I've watched both episodes of Aftermath. It's teetering precariosly close to getting deleted. Which is shame considering a show about multiple apocalypses should be right up my alley.

Doesn't change the fact that it's a great film that's for sure - but to say I take these stories of exorcisms, good and evil, with a grain of salt is an understatement. Anyway...

That's too bad. The promos I saw looked really good. I usually give shows like this 5 episodes or so to find their footing before passing judgement. Hopefully they can get it straightened out.

Doesn't change the fact that it's a great film that's for sure - but to say I take these stories of exorcisms, good and evil, with a grain of salt is an understatement. Anyway...
I see your point. I mean, their stories haven't been scientifically proven (that I know of), but then again science does change as time goes on so one day more people will be able to understand how to measure the phenomena. Plus sometimes witnesses aren't as reliable when they are brought under scrutiny. But their is always that outlier of weird ish going on. Most of these stories are brought on by bad or negative energies in the home. Broken families and abusive situations going seem to coincide with a lot of these stories. But I am not ballsy enough to call their bluff (the Warrens)..I dunno I have seen some horrible ish going on in this world (scarred permanently) and yeah I could say crazy people cause a lot of it. But I do feel things could be driven by forces we don't understand fully. Just my two pennies.

Yeah, I'm the perfect demographic for these Syfy shows as I enjoy most of them. The first episode was fun. The second was tough to get thru. When they picked up the hippie sister it went right in the toilet. I'm thinking of pulling the plug on Timeless and Designated Survivor too. Just so much good tv on right now.

On a more serious note, my copy of The Thing has not arrived yet. I'm starting to get a little grumpy.
