going to see Midsommar tonight - really looking forward to it since Hereditary was one of the better horror movies to come out in the last 5 years

last night was my first viewing of "Peopletoys" aka "Devil Times Five" aka "The Horrible House on the Hill" from 1974. a "killer children" film that was a lot of fun despite some highly annoying editing decisions. especially a 5+ minute kill scene in sepia tone and slow motion that was engaging as watching paint dry. I don't want to spoil anything but the kills get very creative after the first, there are some grade A titties and the children are absolutely ruthless. also my personal favorite effect in any film, there's a man on fire sequence. actually a woman in this one. ANY movie that has a man on fire sequence gets a big ratings bump from me. it's a lot of fun and definitely worth a watch.

Monday night was "Superstition" aka "The Witch" from 1982. This one also had some awesome kills but the brutally bad acting combined with the shoe-string budget made it difficult to get through in one sitting. all the elements of a better schlock film are there but it just doesn't come together all the way. however, more than one priest dies an gory fashion so I can't totally disregard it. but of the two, my recommendation is definitely for "Peopletoys".

"...a 5+ minute kill scene in sepia tone and slow motion that was engaging as watching paint dry"

What?!? That's the best scene in the whole movie! If you're so inclined, the Blu-ray looks much better than the dvd. I grabbed a copy when Screen Archives or DiabolikDVD had it on sale.

I haven't watched anything lately. Pre-ordered two movies I've never heard of from Mondo Macabro: Killer of Dolls and Woman Chasing the Butterfly of Death.

Carne de tu carne (1983)
can't find a way to describe the plot without spoiling too much
wiki labels the directors other film as 'Tropical gothic' and that label fits this one pretty well too
deep dark powers of the psyche unleashed in 1950s Colombia yadda yadda yadda
'dedicated to Roman Polanski and Roger Corman' by the director, and both influences are very evident in the film
I'd also add Ken Russel to the list
technically limited at times, but original, stylish, smart, well written and well acted
unequivocal thumbs up!

Started watching Years and Years last night. I thought they did a great job of capturing the “dystopian future” we’re all expecting. It seemed almost like a overly complicated Black Mirror episode at first but by the end of episode one I was hooked. Looking forward to the rest of them.

Midsommar was not as good as Hereditary (which I give a 10/10) but was still a good movie. would give it a 8/10

Thanks all for those recommended series. Will try to watch most of them. Not sure about Sabrina to be honest, haha. But I must admit I also watched some episodes many years ago, and yes, I think it was funny... In my opinion, only regular Sabrina watchers can get the full edgelord PE points!

the new Sabrina show/series is completely different than the original - much darker and not very "kid" friendly. I watched both seasons (so far) and thought it was decent for what it was, which is just basically a teen drama with a lot of dark/satanic/witchcraft overtones...unless Holy Ghost is talking about the original series - then just ignore this

I liked Hereditary as well, so now I'm really interested in Midsommar.

Ah ok, then sorry for my ignorance. I didn't know there was a new Sabrina series, I only know the one from the end of the nineties.

Two from Jess Franco with Soledad Miranda beauty, Vampyros Lesbos and Eugenie de Sade (1973) -aka Eugenie Sex Happening- . I like Eugenie better. Better movie, story and Soledad more sexy in the role of daughter.

saw "Midsommar" over the weekend and I really enjoyed it as well. as someone who has taken a lot of mushrooms and LSD over the years, I think they conveyed tripping pretty successfully without going over the top. visually the film is a pleasure and the gore is top-notch. I didn't find any of the characters to be sympathetic so I enjoyed what came to them that much more. final verdict, if you like "The Wicker Man" but want those hippy-dippy vibes out of it, this is the movie for you.

sound editing/score was awesome as well - haxan cloak really getting noisy with some strings
