Horror Talk / The Devil's Candy (2015)
« on: June 13, 2018, 04:56:14 AM »
The Devil's Candy is an intense experience, and one of the finest horror films I've seen from the past five years. A bit shorter than average, it's a digestible flick. While not overly gory, there are some scenes of brutality and more often than not some heart-pumping sequences. A highly recommended movie with likable main characters.

What did you feel in regards to The Devil's Candy?

Horror Talk / The Man Who Laughs (1928)
« on: June 13, 2018, 04:44:01 AM »
This dark and moody silent classic is one of those movies that's a classic for the reason. The cast is amazing, the story tragic yet deeply engaging, and it's not one that you'd soon forget. While not a horror movie in the strictest of senses, I do think fans of the genre, especially fans of the older flicks, would rather enjoy this.

What did you think about this classic silent?

Horror Talk / Halloween (2018) Trailer
« on: June 09, 2018, 04:28:09 AM »

So this is disregarding every movie past the 1978 original, which is fun. Looks a solid trailer, and hopefully the movie will be able to live up to the hype.

Horror Talk / Satan's School for Girls (2000)
« on: June 06, 2018, 06:33:42 AM »
I won't doubt that this television remake of a 70's TV movie is goofy. It has some utterly laughable special effects (watch that ending and feel the glory), but damn it, I had fun with this one. Not particularly a good movie, but am I glad I took the time to see it again? Oddly, yes.

What did you think of this remake?

Horror Talk / Siodmak (2012)
« on: June 06, 2018, 06:19:01 AM »
The biggest flaw with Siodmak is the long run-time (an hour and fifty minutes), but if you can take that, this tale about a video blogger and police officer trying to track down a serial killer might do you well. For it's budget, there are some pretty creative and touching scenes, a good cast, and overall, a moderately decent movie.

Have you yet seen Siodmak?

Horror Talk / The Cat and the Canary (1927)
« on: June 03, 2018, 07:21:27 AM »
The Cat and the Canary is a fantastic horror/comedy mix that stands up to this day with it's heavy atmosphere, artistic flair, and great cast. A true classic of the silent era, and one of the last movies Paul Leni brought us.

What are your thoughts on this silent classic?

Other Movies / Kalifornia (1993)
« on: June 03, 2018, 07:12:54 AM »
The four main actors are easily the most impressive thing about this movie. The story is certainly decent, and when violence does occur onscreen, it's almost always solid, but without Brad Pitt and David Duchovny, none that really matters. See it for the stars, if nothing else.

What did you think of Kalifornia?

Horror Talk / Midnight Faces (1926)
« on: May 31, 2018, 04:36:58 AM »
Despite it's short runtime, Midnight Faces has about everything you could hope for from an old dark house mystery/horror movie. There's some well-done fight sequences and the mystery is moderately fun. While the most commonly-available print isn't that good, the movie itself is a solid viewing.

Have you any opinions on this silent flick?

Horror Talk / Fear, Inc (2016)
« on: May 29, 2018, 06:06:03 AM »
No doubt that the ending is a bit of a let-down, Fear, Inc. still stands out as a solid watch, and if you're wary of the comedic factor, past the first twenty minutes or so, it's rather muted. Not that much gore, but a decently fun movie nonetheless.

What did you think of this horror/comedy mix?

Horror Talk / Candyman (1992)
« on: May 26, 2018, 11:22:57 AM »
Candyman has a lot more feeling, it seems than most horror flicks from the previous decade. While this horror-fantasy blend isn't perfect, it's flaws are far outshined by it's positive attributes. Certainly a 90's classic for a reason, Candyman has a lot of elements that make it a worth-watching movie.

How did you find this 90's classic?

Horror Talk / The Hexecutioners (2015)
« on: May 26, 2018, 11:10:43 AM »
This is a disjointed film entirely lacking in necessary context. Truth be told, I can't tell you what happened at the ending. It was as if the movie was just barely held together, and someone pulled the thread, thus everything fell apart. Interesting concept, some visually appealing scenes, but a terrible movie.

How do you think the hexecution of this movie worked out?

Horror Talk / Offerings (1989)
« on: May 24, 2018, 02:38:51 AM »
Though heavily ripping off Halloween, Offerings was a very fun late addition to the slasher sub-genre. While the gore wasn't that amazing, this Oklahoma-based movie had a lot of heart and plenty of fun characters and scenes, and if you're a fan of slashers, I'd definitely recommend giving this a look.

What are your thoughts on Offerings?

Horror Talk / Hell Night (1981)
« on: May 24, 2018, 02:29:28 AM »
I love 80's slashers, and this one certainly had the right feel to it, but something about Hell Night didn't fully do it for me. Many of the kills were a bit blah, and there wasn't enough explanation given regarding the killer. Perhaps a case of too much hype before I finally saw it, Hell Night is decent, but I can list so many 80's slashers I liked more.

What did you think of this slasher?

Horror Talk / My Little Eye (2002)
« on: May 22, 2018, 10:14:53 AM »
I've seen this movie twice, and have been twice disappointed by it. It might have been fresh at the time, around the popularity of shows like Survivor, but My Little Eye hasn't aged well. It had a good song in it, sure, and there was an acceptable death, but there's not much here I'd go out of the way to recommend.

What did you think of this early 2000's addition to the genre?

Horror Talk / Stung (2015)
« on: May 22, 2018, 10:07:30 AM »
While it had the potential to be an enjoyable comedy/horror mix, and the two main characters were decently done, Stung just fell flat really early on, and kept the same underwhelming feel throughout. Not really a movie I'd much recommend.

What did you think of this flick?
