I liked The Invitation - at least much more than The Sacrament which had a similar theme. Interesting that two of the better anglo horrorfilms lately (this and Babadook) have come from female directors using horror to make films about people's inability to deal with grief.

The new French-English mad cabdriver thriller Night Fare was a lot of fun with a cool synth-score, some giallo inspiration and a really dumb ending.

Have also seen the Wolf Creek tv-drama which was awful but might appeal to people who like stuff like Twilight and The Walking Dead.

Liked The Invitation, too. Tom Hardy lookalike was good in it. Not sure if I prefer it over The Sacrement, though.

A few new trailers.

New Shamalamadingdong with James MacCavoy and Jailbait Jennifer from The Witch.

Split:



Turns out the rumours were true and The Woods was in fact a new Blair Witch movie.

Blair Witch:



Slashers have always been a dime a dozen, but this Finnish effort has been building some attention.

Lake Bodom:

Heard good things about it, but the trailers give away far too much apparently.

Should make for a nice double bill with Hush.

Not sure if you would exactly classify as a horror, but I am looking forward to this thriller:

I watched The Shallows and thought it was a pretty good sharkfilm. But don't expect too much.

Under the Shadow is superb. It doesn't earn any cool-points from me for being Iranian - it's just an excellent horrorfilm period. The scares really test your nerves and the last half hour is just intense as hell. You rarely get atmosphere this good in a horror but you have to pay attention or don't bother seeing it.

This has been the best year for horror since 2010 at least (Secuestrados, Sprski Film, Cold Fish, We Are What We Are, etc). Horror has been really weak with a few exceptions in the recent past. Babadook, It Follows, Goodnight Mommy, Under the Skin, Livide, Maniac, Amer 2 and maybe a handful more I can't remember now have been really great.

This year so far I count six more or less perfect horrorfilms:
- The Witch
- Under the Shadow
- The Neon Demon
- The Wailing
- Train From Busan
- The Green Room

There's still a few that could join the list if they become available.

Great to hear Under the Shadow is quality. Had my eye on that film for a while now.

I can only echo similar sentiments for horror movies in 2016. It's been an enjoyable year, imo:

The Witch
The Neon Demon
February (The Blackcoat's Daughter)*
The Conjuring 2
Hush
Green Room*
The Boy
Darling*

* - Technically 2015 movies, but they only made it on to general release this year.

Still need to see The Shallows, Blair Witch, Ouija 2, The Girl With All the Gifts, Don't Breathe, 47 Meters Down and ofc, Under the Shadow.

Love Witch has been in distribution limbo for almost a year.

Stake Land was my fave vampire flick released since Let The Right One In. Liking the look of the sequel. Mickle's out, but Mister is still in.

That has quite a few similar elements with Carpenter Brut's Turbo Killer video.

Anyway, other than The Bye Bye Man *cough, Candyman* there's not much out there right now, but this has really piqued my interest:

A24 looking set to have another potentially strong year with their releases.

It Comes at Night


Always a pleasure when a horror trailer does it right.

Yeah thats a great trailer but I'm curious if they are keeping Pennywise hidden & silent in it because they are hiding a weakness or if maybe they are just keeping it under wraps intentionally to avoid unnecessary internet backlash based off a few minutes of film (which would actually be pretty smart).

I'm pretty divided on this, the original has obvious room for improvement because of its shitty ending and from a technical standpoint the new one should be a lot better (film budget vs tv mini-series budget).
But Tim Curry's performance in the OG is so iconic and perfect that it's going to be hard not to shit on it. I'm not familiar with the new guy playing him at all though.
Wish Cary Fukunaga had stayed on to direct this.

if we consider The Cell (2000) to be a horror movie, how does it rate, in your opinion? j lo, d'onofrio, vaughn, tarsem singh.

It's been years since I last watched it, but I remember it being just ok. Honestly find Tarsem Singh's movies rather hollow and lacking any real substance. Sure, he has a very interesting visual style, but the films themselves are rather mediocre. J Lo was still trying to be taken as a serious actress back then, too.

I really liked it when it came out but haven't watched it in a decade probably. My biggest memory of it was watching it in some girl's basement and her dad caught us messing around, except he was inexplicably more pissed at the fact that we rented a fucked up R-rated film than he was at me having his teenage daughters tits out.
I think The Fall is a great movie although admittedly I'm a sucker for adult fantasy films seen through the eyes of a child (Pan's Labyrinth, Paperhouse, A Little Princess....Mirrormask too although to a lesser extent).
I thought Tarsem was going to be a much better director based off his first two movies but he's fallen the fuck off. Didn't even bother watching his last two.

Raw has been on my radar for quite a while, but still haven't caught it yet:



Anyone seen it?
