Paramount had been experimenting with back catalog titles as digital releases and skipping blu-ray releases. They have back tracked on that a bit. The iTunes download is the unrated edition of Ring Two. Google Play may have the title also. I feel your pain..I wanted it on blu-ray too.

The product page at CD Japan if you're curious. http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/ACXF-90309
Thanks for finding the unrated version on iTunes . I give up on physical copy . I am buying it through iTunes as you pointed out.

The Eyes Of My Mother

76 mim Netflix
In their secluded farmhouse, a mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, teaches her daughter, Francisca, to understand anatomy and be unfazed by death. One afternoon, a mysterious visitor shatters the idyll of Francisca's family life, deeply traumatizing the young girl.

This film really is a diamond in the rough 76 min so doable this week-end . The Eyes of My Mother is a film that really pays off on many levels. A cinematic art film one hand. Yet A slasher picture with no attempts at irony. Hauntingly hypnotic. The film is very delicate and precise in it's psychotic violence (YES) as to be difficult to analyze or describe. I would go so far to say
The Eyes of My Mother is an insightful, meaningful, and exquisitely beautiful horror film, and undoubtedly one of the genre's most important offerings I have seen this year.

SHAUN OF THE DEAD - wow, total classic, imho the best horror/comedy ever, it combines really good quirky humor with great zombies and gore, total fun to watch, you all owe it yourselves to watch this no matter how often you have seen it. I hadnt seen it in many years, got the urge to watch it after they talked about it on the Eli Roth horror show on AMC. Superb movie!!!

I am up to 15 movies for the month now, not averaging one a day anymore, but doing my best. Tough time right now, baseball playoffs going on, plus this is a Formula 1 auto race weekend too.

Crimson Peak.


I still maintain that GDT has yet to make a truly fantastic film. This is my favorite of his. He has several really good ones but I need more from him. CP is is gorgeous and a straight gothic horror that needs for you to let it in. Once you do that it's a helluva ride.

19. A*P*E (3D) (1976) (FTV)

A "so bad it's good" no-budget King Kong ripoff stomps Korea movie from 1976. Oh, and it's in 3D too! There really isn't much to be said about the plot of this movie, a tranquilized giant ape on a cargo ship headed for Disneyworld breaks free and runs amok in South Korea. At the same time a famous American actress is filming a movie in Seoul, and naturally the big ape takes a liking to her. The 3-D aspects are exploited every chance they get, so expect lots of things shoved at the camera. You'll laugh at the terrible acting and lines, laugh at the chunks of styrofoam breaking off the fake boulders that the ape hurls, laugh at the lousy ape as he wrestles an obviously dead shark, laugh at the cheesy miniatures, and laugh along with the crowds of supposedly terrified people running who can't suppress smiles themselves. The giant ape even flips off the helicopters attacking him!

3 out of 5 stars.

Day Twenty.


Amidst the uncomfortable fits of agony, provided by a kidney stone, I set out to lay about and be a slob today.




Witchfinder General.


A state sponsored journalist is out traveling the country looking for Russian collusion participants. He will find them and if not he will make them by any means. Torture, lies, groupthink, any means.
The journalist ruins a man and several innocent people in his witch hunt.
A war veteran returns to his home to find it not the same and his loved ones have been marginalized by the state. He takes up arms and proceeds to end the circus.









-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Time Walker.



Once again the long list of failures of modern academia are out on display here.
A recently uncovered casket from Egypt is shipped to a college for research. The teacher and his students open it, take samples, decipher the emojis, and x ray it. The x rays reawaken a long dormant flesh eating fungus and the mummy. Hidden in the casket are several crystals, quickly stolen by a greedy frat bro. The Mummy needs these to commit crimes against the FCC so he sets out to recover them.
Meanwhile the emojis literally say this dude is from space and will kill you all but the tenured staff and administration ignore it to preserve their tribalism, grants, and public relations.
As the mummy gets around he's spreading the fungus which is killing students so the fraternal organizations have an Egyptian themed party. The more of the crystals he gathers the more powerful the FCC violations are. Power failures, brown outs, sketchy lab gear malfunctions, etc.
No one seems to care except for the one teacher and his assistant who figure out the Mummy is building a pirate crystal radio station (badass) to phone home. Of course they want to stop this because the FCC would really frown on it so they get down to business and stop these violations. It's because of movies like this that I keep an eye on the local university I live near, I drive by The Center For Resolving Human and Wildlife Conflict everyday and I can't help but wonder wtf they do in there.





------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Seven in Heaven.


What if the dare game where you go in a closet with a person was still that game but when you came out you were in an alternate reality? That's pretty much it, think about it until you're done reading this and go find something else to watch.


This isn't the trailer but it's better.

Watched First Man in IMAX with Laser yesterday night. Really liked the movie. The movie has an absolutely awesome sound mix. The clatter during the flight scenes sounded so good. Can't wait to crank this one at home.

On another note, I should mention that during the early 2000s when I was in high school, Buzz Aldrin visited my school. He gave some talk but I don't remember any of it. All I can recall is that he was a bit grumpy.

Sounds like Buzz! He's a bit of a crank from what I've seen. Good for him.

I loved Witchfinder General, but let's face it, Vincent Price rocks.

For more warped weirdness I watched "Bag Boy Lover Boy" on Shudder last night. This is sort of an arthouse horror film about a NYC guy selling hot dogs who gets talked into being a model for a fetish photographer. Three meat grinders.


I also started watching "Haunted" on Netflix last night and tonight will finish off the last episode "Haunting of Hill House".

"Who's Watching Oliver" & "Bag Boy Lover Boy". "FREAKY" I think I may like them a lot.

Five college friends unknowingly rent a house where infamous murders took place over 100 years ago. I liked the story idea but the movie sucked.

Went to see 'Bad Times at El Royale' , quick version the guy who gave you 'Cabin In The Woods' plays in the Tarantino-Lynch universe, put it on your list to see when the video comes out. Also knocked off the lastest AHS episode, if FX ever wanted to, the witches and warlocks could support a series on their own. There is a lot of potential material to work with.

FREDDY'S DEAD
The Final Nightmare

I own New Line Platinum Series: 'The Nightmare on Elm Street Original Collection' DVD

I own all the Blue-rays as well but in this case FREDDY'S DEAD
The Final Nightmare The blu-ray does not have 'Famous' Final Anaglyph 3D End Sequence so I watched the HD version till the 3D Finale and busted out my pair of "color-coded" "anaglyph glasses" I saved from my 'Psychedelic' expansion of consciousness days to watch the DVD in 3D.
I do not really like black humor in horror films albeit: Ash(Bruce Campbell) & Feddy Krueger ( Robert Englund) Krueger is at his funniest. Totally hilarious. And it the film still can creeps me out. 'Que-Tip through the ear scene'. These films are (so good). Or maybe one must need to be a nostalgic super fan!!
The cameo's by Roseanne , Tom Arnold , Alice Cooper and 'This your Brain on Drugs' F-ing funny A.S. by Johnny Deep. I thought I would work my way backwords in the 9 film collection Worst to best . But I was wrong about FREDDY'S DEAD' it is one of the best .

well I dont post on here much but i do follow this thread year long as i get a lot of recommendations from you guys and i do love the banter !!

This along with the 'movies with bass' thread are where i spend a lot of my time at work so thanks for the entertainment !!

I have tried to do the 1 movie a day in October thing since i found this thread but this year has been tougher and I have only seen 13 so far in 20 days. To fill in the other days my gf and I started watching 'The Haunting of Hill House' on Netflix. We are only a few episodes in but love it so far.

So on with this years viewings so far which have all been FTV's - sidenote my gf doesnt like a lot of gore, torture, or bloody needless killings so i am trying to stick with more ghostly or sci-fi related movies.

1) Sphere (1998) - not really horror but i wanted to start off with something more sci-fi. We did enjoy it but i thought it was a bit of a let-down.

2) Truth or Dare (2018) - average teen horror flick, nothing special here unfortunately.

3) Malevolent (2018) - i enjoyed this one, was decent enough to keep me entertained for 90 minutes.

4) Wind Chill (2007) - thought this one was good, started off well but didnt really like the second half.

5) Get Out (2017) - was looking forward to this one based on the reviews but felt a little let down. Thought it would be more horror than thriller but it was entertaining.

6) 21 Days (2014) - this and seven in heaven were just random picks as i was just trying to waste some time waiting for my gf. Waste my time i did as these were not very good.

7) Seven in Heaven (2018)

8) Ghostland (2018) or Incident in a Ghostland - its very sad what happened to the actress in this movie but i thought the movie was great. Good acting, great story and a twist that i didnt see coming !

9) Ghost Story (1981) - I am sure this would have scared me as a kid back in 1981 but the story was good !

10) Terrifier (2017) - I watched this one alone as I know the gf would not have liked it. It was a good, creepy, killer clown movie !

11) The Cell (2000)- much like Sphere, not really a horror movie but we liked it.

12) The Human Centipede 2 (2011) - watched the first one last year so wanted to check this one out. I didnt mean to watch the whole thing as i started it around noon yesterday and just kinda wanted to see what is was like but once i started it i wanted to see it until the end. What a sick series of movies but will most likely end up watching the 3rd one.

13) Hereditary (2018) - was very excited to see this one based on what i have heard. Really enjoyed it but i think like a lot of people, was left at the end saying 'WTF just happened ?'.

20. Dracula (1931)

The original Universal Studios classic still resonates today. I can't say much that hasn't already been said before. Bela Lugosi is a legend. Tod Browning's pinpoint use of lighting and slow camera motion are still effective and spooky. I still watch the first 20 minutes practically holding my breath, the tension and atmosphere are so strong. I can't imagine what it was like for audiences back in 1931--I bet you could hear a pin drop in the theater, until the screams started. A total horror classic in every sense of the word, and if you're on the fence about upgrading to the Blu-Ray, do it!

5 out of 5 stars.

This along with the 'movies with bass' thread are were i spend a lot of my time at work so thanks for the entertainment !!

I have tried to do the 1 movie a day in October thing since i found this thread but this year has been tougher and I have only seen 13 so far in 20 days. To fill in the other days my gf and I started watching 'The Haunting of Hill House' on Netflix. We are only a few episodes in but love it so far.

So on with this years viewings so far which have all been FTV's - sidenote my gf doesnt like a lot of gore, torture, or bloody needless killings so i am trying to stick with more ghostly or sci-fi related movies.

1) Sphere (1998) - not really horror but i wanted to start off with something more sci-fi. We did enjoy it but i thought it was a bit of a let-down.

2) Truth or Dare (2018) - average teen horror flick, nothing special here unfortunately.

3) Malevolent (2018) - i enjoyed this one, was decent enough to keep me entertained for 90 minutes.

4) Wind Chill (2007) - thought this one was good, started off well but didnt really like the second half.

5) Get Out (2017) - was looking forward to this one based on the reviews but felt a little let down. Thought it would be more horror than thriller but it was entertaining.

6) 21 Days (2014) - this and seven in heaven were just random picks as i was just trying to waste some time waiting for my gf. Waste my time i did as these were not very good.

7) Seven in Heaven (2018)

Welcome. The banter is free. I used to be a gore hound but fatherhood and my own mortality has softened me. We do a ton of ghost flicks and I typically do like them. I believe it's fair to say we here watch scary movies all year long.

Don't be a stranger, we like new people adding to the thread.

Day Twenty One.


The Shining.

Can't say much here to this crowd about this one. I can say the conversation with my daughter over it was interesting. The exploration of fear with a child is nuts. While not scared by what she paid attention to she was aware of what was happening. She even got that Danny was psychic, something that took me a while to grasp. She got the reverse shout out to Ready Player One as well. Of particular note is the score, when the boring talking stuff is happening her attention drifted, as you'd expect, but when the schizophrenic music swelled up she was drawn right in. She cheered when Jack got smashed by the baseball bat.

It's a great movie but difficult to explain to a kid how it becomes different things as you watch it over time.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Night of the Comet.

I've loved this movie forever and try to make sure the child sees it at least once a year as background noise while she plays. It's not super scary but the setup is great, there's a reason comets are harbingers of doom after all. It helps that the leading ladies are cute and can handle themselves as opposed to damsels in distress. Too bad Wonder Woman 2017 invented Strong Feminine Leads essentially negating all that came before her, RIP Ripley, Billy Jean, and Sarah Connor.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cat's Eye


A decent anthology, I was never a super fan but do enjoy it from time to time.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The First Purge.


From the point of the whole series this is a good start. If the Purge were real it would probably start like this and end like the first in the series. They've left the mysterious angles (blessed be) of the setup and moved on to full donkeys elephants. I'd hide from the Purge and let them eat other if I had my way.


I still like it better when the story is smaller and this has that but not until the last third.

Nice review, Bob. Looks like folks are beginning to get into some really good oldies.

Was this really an FTV though?!

I finished off the Baby Ruths last night. Kids will have to do without the diabetes-inducing goodies this year. Now I'm onto Subway oatmeal cookies. 3/$1.50. What a bargain!

Haven't finished another movie yet, but I visited my library, and they have a pretty nice selection of DVD titles to choose from. I picked up the 2nd and 3rd Hobbit movies (which I never finished), The Woman in Black with D. Radcliffe, and The World's End for starters. Dunno if I'll like any of these.

Last night's pick was "Downrange" on Shudder. Typical story of a bunch of young folks off to the country but they get a flat and then shot at by a hidden sniper. Three and a half tool box lids.


Also finished "Haunting of Hill House" on Netflix. Gotta say I was just a little underwhelmed at the ending.


I'm a dark chocolate fiend and kids usually don't like dark chocolate (I actually did as a kid) so there is usually no Halloween candy with dark chocolate. I did buy a bag of the little Tootsie rolls though.
