The Stepfather (1987)

been a while since i watched this last
so i remembered it to be good, but forgot just how good it was
great screenplay by Don Westlake + stellar performance by Terry O'Quinn = a freaking classic
Jill Schoelen's character also adds a lot, this film wouldn't be the same without her

Choke- based on the book by the author of "Fight Club". The book is good, I think? Seems like I liked it more than the movie. The movie has it moments but seems like it could have been much more.

Another Son of Sam- one of those Something Weird movies. I mostly forwarded through it. It's junk only worth watching if there's nothing else around. Oh, and it has nothing to do with the Son of Sam.

Just started Who Can Kill a Child? which is a Spanish classic.

The Fly- (Cronenberg), still some of the best special effects ever.

After the recent disappointment of Sacrifice! aka The Man From Deep River my friend and I watched Cannibal Ferox as our first ever proper cannibal exploitation film. While it certainly had its ridiculous aspects, it was actually a lot more coherent than I expected. the dialogue was especially better than what I expected. but who gives a shit, we're here for the castration and cannibalization, which Ferox provides. still could have gone for more violence but I wasn't unsatisfied. it's also pretty easy to see why this film influence a shit load of metal bands.

also watched Halloween 2018 which was way better than I expected. while there's a lot less of the peek-a-boo / stalker vibes of the first 2 films, there's still some of that. and for what it lacks in stalking it makes up for in fairly brutal gore. especially liked a sequence involving a gas station bathroom, teeth and some podcasters. also one of the lead character's friends is way hot. too bad she wasn't the lead. every time it started to feel too "modern horror" for my taste it would kick back into a gnarly gear. definitely a Halloween film I'll revisit.

I recently watched that Halloween movie - actually a lot better than I thought it would be.

We were pretty bored the other night and watched King Arthur on Netflix as the guy from Sons of Anarchy was the lead - thinking - maybe it’ll be so bad it’s good - nope - it was so bad it was unwatchable. And it lost 150 million dollars! What a fucking pile of shit. That dude is the fucking worst actor.

I feel for you. I saw that movie as well a year or two ago and it was fucking painful.

Dr. Caligari (1989)
a nice overstylized piece of mindfuckery more or less on par with the usual suspects from the weird film department
not exactly a masterpiece and at times comes off as trying too hard, but some sequences are pretty ace

Has this ever been officially released on DVD?  why is there not a Rinse Dream box set available??

Blade-  Wesley Snipes has a hybrid human/vampire, what's not to like

Blade II
-more could have been done with the plot on this one, interesting concept but did not deliver all that great, still a good movie

Watched The Beyond again last night with the commentary track from Catriona MacColl and David Warbeck. really good stuff. hilarious and insightful in equal amounts. if you're a fan of the film or Fulci generally I highly recommend checking it out. I think all versions of it from the Grindhouse Releasing DVD onward have it.

This past Tuesday was Phantasm 2 for the first time. Very different vibes from the first film, more action than horror but entertaining as hell. And one of the two chicks in it is a real qtpi.

Re-watched Christine and really enjoyed it. Re-read the book recently and it was great, movie was lots of fun but couldn’t stand up to the book which was absolutely killer. Planning to the the rest of the John Carpenter flicks I haven’t seen in a while.

In my recent Carpenter binge a few months back Christine was definitely one of the highlights. It was my first time seeing it and I was pleasantly surprised. Might be his one film in touch with true emotion.
