Horror Talk / The Vampire Bat (1933)
« Last post by Jigsaw on May 12, 2019, 11:49:14 PM »
While certainly not a classic the likes of Dracula or Frankenstein, The Vampire Bat is often a moody and enjoyable way to spend an hour. There's solid performances, decent mystery, and a rather progressive-thinking protagonist. There's a lot to enjoy here, so if you're a fan of black-and-white flicks, I'd recommend checking this out.

Have you any thoughts on The Vampire Bat?

Horror Talk / Cloverfield (2008)
« Last post by Jigsaw on May 12, 2019, 11:38:32 PM »
Cloverfield is appropriately chaotic, and is quite action-packed, which works well despite what one would think of a stylistic handicap (being found footage), but because of the mind-numbing opening twenty minutes and the fact that one of the characters is pretty annoying throughout the film, despite what Cloverfield gets right, I don't overly love it. Not a bad time to pass the time, but there are better flicks, even within the found footage style of film, to go with.

What are your thoughts on the somewhat popular Cloverfield?

Indeed - loved the music and aesthetics, but the story didn't really work for me.

Not bad, I gave this one a review too. Good idea, a couple of decent moments but ultimately a forgettable flick.

6/10

Horror Talk / Day of the Reaper (1984)
« Last post by Jigsaw on May 10, 2019, 04:13:05 AM »
Tim Ritter's first film is a doozy, and probably only one that'd appeal to fans of Ritter or lower budget SOV films of the 1980's. Day of the Reaper has some solid stuff in it, but the audio and visual quality would make it really hard, I suspect, for most people to get through it. I've wanted to see this one for years, and while I didn't love it, I really appreciate what it was going for, especially given it was Ritter's first film.

What are your thoughts on this low budget SOV flick?

The Brain (1988) [I enjoyed this one more than I expected. It's not an amazing film, but it occasionally has a very welcomed trippy feel to it, and generally, I think it's a decently fun romp. Not overly goofy or silly either, which is a big plus] [7.5/10] [Watched 5/08/19]

Horror Talk / Head Games (1996)
« Last post by Chucky on May 05, 2019, 02:54:10 PM »
There's a decent plot here, but the execution doesn't do it justice. The characters could have been more interesting and it would have benefited from being more violent in its most pivotal scenes. I wouldn't mind re-watching though if it ever gets a high-def release.

Have you any thoughts on Head Games?

Horror Talk / Midsommar trailer
« Last post by Jigsaw on May 02, 2019, 09:34:43 AM »
Directed by the guy who did Hereditary, Midsommar will be coming out over the summer. Trailer was somewhat newly released, and thought it'd be worth sharing (especially since I'll probably bring it up on the podcast at some point).

Horror Talk / Gehenna: Where Death Lives (2016)
« Last post by Jigsaw on May 01, 2019, 07:49:02 AM »
Despite the potential this movie had, ultimately, it just felt like another by-the-numbers ghost story. It had a decent setting, and some of the aspects of the plot were cool, but the final product turns out rather forgettable, and the fact that it runs for an hour and 45 minutes makes this a really hard one to recommend.

What did you think of this supernatural flick?

Horror Talk / Creepshow (1982)
« Last post by Jigsaw on May 01, 2019, 07:41:10 AM »
While not every story is a hit, Creepshow is still a lot of fun and does great with it's comic book style. Great performances, some fun segments, solid animation, and just overall enjoyable, Creepshow's often considered a classic for a reason.

What's your favorite segment in Creepshow?
