I was actually going to post a creepy picture of the day but that one probably fits the bill just fine!

Ok, here's the other one courtesy of The Chive smile.gif

Looks like the returns department at the Moose Jaw, Ontario Best Buy.

The only blu-ray I broke the rule on was The Movie That Shall Not Be Named (for fear of starting more arguing.) biggrin.gif

On another note, how can anyone who visits this thread say "no" to a Mexican Day of the Dead ring?


I try and hold on to that rule for older films, but there are exceptions. I also have two small children so most Pixar/Disney movies are delivered on release day.

I could spend hours ambling up and down the aisles but mostly had minutes if mom was idling in the parking lot. Then you'd find the diamond in the rough, a green slimy monster coming out a toilet. Perfect. Thankfully the store used those black plastic cases for the tapes so mom wouldn't ask too many questions.

Going to the store was half the experience. I really do miss it. Thought about this post on my way to get Warm Bodies from the Redbox last night. Sigh.

Everyone knows you dangle those kind of movies in front of them so they do their chores i.e. make the bed, wash the dishes, and bury the bodies of door-to-door solicitors.

Lol!
For my son, movies are his biggest motivators to be a good boy.

I finally got around to watching V/H/S. Not bad, I enjoyed it. It had some rough edges. My favorite tape was the video chatting.

Yeah, that was a good one. I probably liked VHS2 better but it still had two somewhat weak segments while the second 2 were pretty solid.

I just got American Mary from nf so will be watching that either tonight or tomorrow.

Cool. Didn't know there was VHS2.

edit: Hmmmm... $10 to rent on Amazon.

VHS2 seems to be having a longer "in theaters" run than usual and I see a small bunch of theater bookings on Magnet's site for it. I think when I paid for a "new release" for VHS a couple weeks later it was on NF WI.

BTW, I watched the "Siberia" pilot and as I said over in the HDTV Programming section it seems to have been inspired by "The Chernobyl Diaries" with the 1908 Siberian asteroid crash replacing the reactor meltdown (not a spoiler as there is a big hint right in the opening scene).

This will drop in price between now and next October and will be a shining addition to my 1980's campy, but good, bluray collection.

Watched the new Evil Dead over the weekend and really enjoyed it. Also sat down and watched Prison and while it does not hold up very well some of the kills were nice.

On a side note I would love to watch V/H/S 2 I did not like any of the segments in the first one except for the last one. The only real reason I watched it I guess was to see the Ti West segment. After getting burned on renting the ABC's of Death for $9 I think I will wait for V/H/S 2 to come out on NF.

Not really horror but kind of macabre Solomon Kane will be coming out on Blu-Ray/DVD on July 16th.

You should check out The disappearance of Alice Creed. "Lots" of Gema in that and a pretty decent flic too.

Finally got to Hansel and Gretel. Pretty fun for a rental, and Gemma was good, but if it is rated R why not try to make it scaryish or intense? That, and Renner was HORRIBLE in this. Still Gemma was hot and I could see her in an Underworld reboot. Oink in 1...2...3

I didn't care fo Alice Creed. Once it started to unfold I just wanted it to end. Renner was great in Hurt Locker but after seeing him in more films I think her pretty one dimensional and overrated. I didn't get to American Mary last night, sorry but Dexter always takes precedence, maybe tonight. Funny though, I had it queued up at 10:30 and thought the Mrs. would head to bed so I would watch it but she wanted to stay up and watch Dexter but almost decided to watch American Mary with me just being intrigued by the clips alternating on the main menu screen.

Oh yes, I checked out Alice per recommendation in this area and really dug it. That's where my
creeper crush on Gemma began recently. I actually started watching Byzantium the other night but got bored with it and won't have time to finish in the 48 hour window. frown.gif

Did you guys watch the unrated version of H&G? Tons of over the top campy gore. There must have been 5 decapitations!

Larry, since you like zombies there's a very original setup in one story that might make it worth a look.

Miss Gemma in an Underworld?
Dude, I don't think so....
She couldn't hold Kate's faux leather tights.

Watched last night.
It had its moments, but it also had moments of being rather flat.

BTW, it is a little bit funny that this Canadian production was titled "American" Mary.

I can only give it 2 1/2 surgically-repaired zombies.

IIRC, redbox had the unrated version. And yes, loved the gore, effects and adult situations. That, and Gemma smile.gif, made this a fun rental. Would like to see more movies with this. Just puzzles me that it had PG13 vibe or tone to it but throws in R language, love to hear Gemma curse cool.gif, gore and nudity. Don't get me wrong, I like that, but seems odd in this day when most R movies are neutered to be PG13 and this PG13 flic was beefed to an R. Seems to me if you are going to have R elements you might as well beef up the tone a bit and try to make it a little chilling.

Watched it last night and agree. Seemed like and movie that wasn't really sure what it wanted to be. It mostly teased character study but wasn't really committed to that or any plot line that I could grab and be pulled through the film. Katharine Isabelle was fantastic but her character should have championed a more complex story.

Next up is Dark Skies

I dunno, American Mary was pretty dope but different strokes and all.
post #5307 of 9808
Oh man, catching up on this thread has me hankering for Halloween. Haven't seen much lately but did check out the Awakening a few nights ago. Nice production value and kind of like watching Downton Abbey with ghosts. I believe a few others here have mentioned seeing it and my wife was fairly iimpressed with it. This is her kind of thing, no blood and guts really, just dark rooms and creepy British people.
