Horror Talk / Stickman (2017)
« on: Yesterday at 11:58:16 AM »
While not dripping in creativity, and with some obvious flaws, Stickman still stands out as one of SyFy's better films. I think if you're the more forgiving type, you could get some enjoyment out of this. I'd just recommend not going in with expectations too high.

Horror Talk / Encounter with the Unknown (1972)
« on: Yesterday at 12:35:56 AM »
Encounter with the Unknown is a low budget anthology with no gore, jump scares, or nudity. A family friendly, yet fun film, this movie can be a bit of a treat if you like the low-key vibe of 70's horror. Not sure if I'm alone in this, but I think this regional film was one worth watching.

Horror Talk / Don't Go in the Woods (2010)
« on: October 09, 2018, 06:57:06 AM »
I doubt that this film would appeal to most horror fans, due to the fact it's more a musical than a horror film. Which I thought was interesting, despite it not being done particularly well. And that plot twist was ridiculously obvious. Still, I think Don't Go in the Woods has some charm, and while I might be the only one who sees it, there you go.

Have you any thoughts on this horror-musical hybrid?

Horror Talk / Murder by the Clock (1931)
« on: October 07, 2018, 12:07:02 AM »
While I didn't love Murder by the Clock as much as I did when I last saw it, I still think it's a pretty overlooked classic, undeservingly so. There's a fun story, pretty good gothic atmosphere, and solid performances throughout. As a fan of 30's horror, you have a lot to look forward in this movie, despite it not necessarily being a film that will blow you away.

Other Movies / King of the Wild (1931)
« on: October 03, 2018, 12:30:20 PM »
This serial, like many serials, often feels as though it's dragging and dragging, and the multiple cliff-hangers, which are so easily dispatched with, got somewhat old quick. No doubt there was some fun to be had here, and there were some entertaining sequences, but given the length of this adventure/action serial, it's not something I'd go out of my way to recommend (Boris Karloff would be the best selling point, I'd wager).

Have you set eyes upon this serial?

Horror Talk / The Attic (2007)
« on: October 02, 2018, 11:28:21 PM »
The Attic has a very obvious straight-to-video feel, and leans more on superficial jump scares than it does outright horror (there was a solid throat-slitting, at the very least). Most of the enjoyment comes from Moss's (of The West Wing fame) performance, and the story itself is somewhat interesting.

Have you any thoughts on this lower-budget film?

Horror Talk / Delirium (2018)
« on: September 30, 2018, 07:51:55 AM »
Watched this as a recommendation, and overall, I thought it made a decent watch. Quality performances and suspense throughout, the main problem with Delirium being that the ending didn't hold the punch I was looking forward to. By all means a movie that's still worth a look, for me, it ended up being just above average.

Horror Talk / The Eerie Midnight Horror Show (1974)
« on: September 26, 2018, 10:44:49 AM »
This Italian Exorcist rip-off has some pretty interesting and wild sequences during the first thirty to forty minutes, but the last two-thirds of the film goes down a predictable and rather dull path. Despite sometimes having fun with the dialogue, the dubbing, and solid sequences, this film isn't really worth looking too hard for.

Horror Talk / Hellraiser: Inferno (2000)
« on: September 24, 2018, 02:30:37 AM »
The fifth Hellraiser film takes an entirely different, far more psychological approach, on the series. Honestly, despite the Cenobites looking just as bland as they have for the past two films, it doesn't as negatively impact here as it did before. The story is somewhat interesting, though nonsensical at times, and none of the acting is subpar (though as this is a straight-to-video movie, perhaps that could be excused), but having seen this multiple times, I still have some fun with it. Controversial opinion, to be sure, but I think Inferno is a better film than both Hell on Earth and Bloodline.

Horror Talk / Filth to Ashes, Flesh to Dust (2011)
« on: September 23, 2018, 01:35:12 AM »
Filth to Ashes, Flesh to Dust isn't the worth way film to spend some time on, but it's not something I'd go out of my way for. Sure, some of the gore is decent for a low quality flick, and it carries with it a somewhat deeper message than you might think, but the story is just repetitive and somewhat tedious. Not terrible, by any means, but nowhere near good.

Have any thoughts on this slasher flick?

Horror Talk / The Boy (2016)
« on: September 19, 2018, 05:20:02 PM »
Some portions of the film meander a bit, but overall, I think that this film is both atmospheric and moody enough to entertain most audiences, and the strong performances of the main characters certainly helps pull The Boy together.

Horror Talk / Night of the Blood Beast (1958)
« on: September 18, 2018, 12:06:53 PM »
This late 50's entry is rather slow-moving, and despite occasionally somewhat atmospheric scenes, there's just not enough here to really warrant loving the film. For a dark and rainy night, Night of the Blood Beast might be okay, provided your options are limited, but otherwise, I'd recommend grabbing something else off the shelf.

Horror Talk / Last of the Living (2009)
« on: September 17, 2018, 12:02:02 AM »
Despite some problems, such as the fact the film runs a bit longer than need be, and a somewhat unsatisfactory conclusion, Last of the Living is a decently fun film with fun characters. If zomedies are your thing, I don't see why this New Zealand flick, even with it's lower production value, wouldn't do it for you.

Horror Talk / Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies (1999)
« on: September 13, 2018, 04:50:14 AM »
While the first Wishmaster is an enjoyable entry to 90's horror in a variety of ways, the second film lacks almost everything that made the first one good. The story here isn't really something that much appeals to me, and Divoff's acting comes across as much hammier here than in the first film. Even the special effects mostly falter, likely because it's a straight-to-video film. Overall, Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies, is a disappointment.

What are your thoughts on this sequel?

Horror Talk / The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006)
« on: September 11, 2018, 05:22:27 AM »
While it has both solid gore and special effects (any less, and there'd have been no reason to make a TMC film), The Beginning comes across as pretty bland, and despite being an origin story, doesn't really have that much to add.

What are your thoughts of the prequel to the 2003 remake?
