Started “The Staircase” last night. Sort of your typical true crime HBO series on the first episode but I’m told it gets really fucking weird.

Rewatching classic Universal Monsters stuff, started with Dracula. Last night however was Cobra, 80's action nonsense with Stallone. Great stuff.

A lot of friends are doing this 31 days of Halloween thing. 31 horror flicks for the month of October. Too busy to sit down for that amount and I'm away for the remainder of the month, but I got through a couple;
Pumpkinhead 2-4 (actually tolerable!)
New zombie efforts from Bruno Mattei; Island of the Living Dead and Zombies: The Beginning (both unwatchable GARBAGE)
Splatter University (ultra dull slasher)
Pet Sematary 2018 (Ok)
Just Before Dawn (good stuff!)

The Oily Maniac, Burial Ground, a handful of Godzilla movies on Turner Classic Movies. I think tonight will be the Blue Underground release of New York Ripper. Halloween night will be City of the Living Dead.

Right now, it's Outcast series on Cinemax about exorcism. Credits say it's based on something by Robert 'Walking Dead' Kirkman. Not very interesting, so far.

The Wax Mask- Fulci/Argento. decent movie with some great special effects. some cool kills. streaming on Shudder right now

Haunt - another film streaming on Shudder. decent slasher with some already kill scenes. plot makes no sense and whatnot but I guess that the aura of a decent slasher, recommended if you have Shudder and are looking to watch a fun/decent movie

Marauders- shitty action film starting Christopher Meloni, Bruce Willis and Dave Bautista.

Just signed up for a trial week. Looking for some stuff I haven’t seen so I appreciate it. I love how they have a whole Creepshow series and can only get Creepshow 2......

I dunno if I’ll keep it - there is not a ton of content so far, and I went to watch Deep Red last night and it’s the version missing like 22 minutes. I am enjoying the Eli Roth horror series which I did not actually think I would.

Hide and Go Shriek- obscure slasher from 1988 that is fairly mundane other than a cool setting (furniture store-warehouse after hours) & a killer that isn't quite your stereotype slasher. None of the kills are all that hot other than one decapitation involving an elevator. Definitely a film for slasher completists or if you find it cheap. Code Red released it in the U.S. & 88 Films in the U.K. which is the release I found cheap on eBay.

The Burning
Early '80s slasher classic. For some reason I never saw this one until now. Not that much happening until about 40min into the movie except awesome eightiesness and Jason Alexander (aka George Costanza of Seinfeld) but once the killing properly begins it's great. Hail Tom Savini. Has a definite Friday the 13th vibe to it.

The Killing Of Satan
Early '80s fantasy film from the Philippines. The English dub of this one is the laziest ever. Totally zero emotion. I never heard the original language track of this movie and I assume the dub is made the same way as the original. The second half of the movie has some mind-boggling "special" effects and sequences that are totally worth it if you can appreciate the more turkey/B aspects of cinema.

Madman- pretty good backwoods slasher with some atmosphere & gory killings. The first time I watched this movie, it didn't make much of an impression on me but this time around, I enjoyed it quite a bit. There's a great hanging and a couple splattery decapitations. Seems like when this came out on vhs, it was dark you could not see shit.

I figure because it's popular I'll ask:

Did anyone here have any interest whatsoever in seeing Joker? Everyone is making this huge deal about it being representative of psychological bullying and physical abuse towards someone leading them into the descent of madness, and committing violent acts like the Dayton shooter or whatever.

I think what is odd about it though, is that it took Hollywood to make a really stupid film about a clown (everyone that admires the film was making fun of mentally ill teens dressing as Joker and Harley Quinn just yesterday) from an overdone comic book series, in a way that isn't actually the original story, for people to have this conversation, lol. To me it's just Hollywood banking on the boom in "incel culture", and in the increase in discussions about bullying, and making everyone to feel sorry for these people so that Hollywood can profit. Some ridiculous people are even saying that Joker represents the H'WHITE man in his own country these days. Some madman that has a feminine laugh because he had his gonads cut off, and so everything is CLOWN WORLD. When it comes to that then you know society is legitimately screwed for good this time.

Power Electronics has been dealing with these subjects for decades. Hell, just watch ANY documentary on ANY serial killer on youtube. Every single one of those killers were sexually abused, or treated like shit as a kid. If the real discussion is to be had on the psychology of the matter, why on Earth would a film like Joker be the one that finally breaks the ice?

Still, did anyone see it?

Had lots of drunken fun watching Norsemen series 1+2 in the last days. Too bad Frøya had to die at the end. She and Arvid are my new romantic dream couple of any movie...

By the way, don't take me too serious!

"Slugs" - dir. Juan Piquer Simon

on Tuesday I watched this for the first time with my buddy and what a film it was!  first off, slugs and other slithery critters are cool be default so I expected to like this. I thought plot and pacing-wise this would be all over the place given the insanity of "Pieces", the only other film I've seen by the director, but this was actually fairly competent as far as plot and development go. however, the dialogue is still pretty crazy and a lot of the performances are delivered with maximum effort. it's a weird combo of intense and goofy. but it this dynamic helps move along the less exciting parts which keeps the movie from being a bore. the sfx for the slug kills and the ridiculous final 10 minutes are particularly note-worthy.  apparently the film has already been released by Arrow on Bluray and is getting issued in the US next month.

Haha, I watched that series up until now. It's all of the bad misrepresentations of Nordic culture into one. Entertaining, but totally useless. I feel like Jarl Varg is the representation of every evil bald headed dark ambient fucker with a hood on in a historical setting.
