Shudder is constantly adding new titles along with original movies exclusive to Shudder (Prevenge is great). I started with the free trail earlier this year and have been a fan of it ever since

I just finished Mask Maker. Really good slasher film, cool premise, likeable characters and a killer who is kinda like Leatherface without the chainsaw but with Jason's kinda undead thing.

It's good in the same way Dying Fetus or In-N-Out are good. Certainly nothing new but the quality of there.

Riddle wrote:The last few days:

A Dark Song - 7.5/10. Interesting to say the least. Great use of creepy violin scratching for the soundtrack. Didn't care for the ending, though.

Shut In - 2/10. Nothing new and exciting about this one.

The Devil's Candy - 6/10. Interesting concept.. Last haul in the movie was fun.. overall just OK though..

Lake Mungo - 7/10. A slow burn mock dock, not a whole lot of spooky in this one, however, I will say this. The climax of the movie made me feel actual fear in the pit of my stomach, so for that, it gets my love.

Tonight I'm going to check out "Never Hike Alone" and "The Ghoul".


Shut In was one of the worst movies ive ever watched in theaters haha. I can't believe some of the things it tried...mostly Oliver Platt explaining everything over Skype lol

Maybe someone here knows what I'm talking about.

The basic plot was heavy metal band goes to a ski cabin(I think to shoot a music video) and they all start getting killed off. It was cheesy and pretty bad in a bad way if I remember right. I'm pretty sure they had brought like 2 girls with them as well. I know it's not really a lot to go on.

My brother was watching Rock'n'Roll Nightmare and I thought of it but he didn't know what I was talking about and he's more into horror movies than I am.

The BM band Inquisition sampled the English dub of that on their first (I think) album. It's the only Naschy I've ever seen but it's pretty cool. Didn't it just get released on bluray or something? I only ever saw a shitty VHS rip.

I've loved this movie ever since it came out. It's a hell of a fun ride, I think there are some bone fide creepy moments (Angela hovering/floating through the halls, for instance), some classic moments (the lipstick scene), plus it's the movie that introduced me to Bauhaus. This movie and Killer Klowns from Outer Space are basically responsible for introducing me to punk and goth music, so I am forever indebted...haha.

Pretty much everything. The annoying brother, the guido Sal, Stooge, the geography of Hall House, Angela's whole mission of having the party, the seance was dumb, the effects, I could go on. It's not a "so bad, it's good" type of movie, it's just bad, not even laughable. I went in with low expectations, I love B-movies especially from the '80's, but damn.

Bauhaus scene was cool though. I'll give it that.

This.

I didn't think much of it when i first saw it but it's definitely grew on me throughout the years. The Scream Factory release looks and sounds so good.

Postby Woodshatter » Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:20 pm

Update on the films I've watched so far:

Spoiler: show
11. Death Machine- 1994 scifi/horror combo that I picked up from B&N for $7. Brad Dourif is the real standout, though the titular monster does look a little cool. Lots of blatant homages to Aliens, including two ecoterrorists named Weyland and Yutani.
12. Wrestlemaniac- Probably the worst movie I've seen so far in this year's marathon. Fun concept, really bad execution. Didn't realize Rey Misterio Sr. was that big of a guy compared to his nephew.
13. Christine- Really dug the heck out of it. Have no idea why I hadn't seen it sooner.
14. Graveyard Shift- Some decent ideas, but really poorly executed. Monster looks cool and Brad Dourif RULES (again), but that's about it.
15. Fire in the Sky- Debating even calling it horror, but man was that post-abduction scene on the ship freaky as fuck.
16. Without Warning- Really wanted to like it, especially considering that it's an influence on Predator, but I was so bored for the thing overall. And the alien hunter looked like fucking Megamind.
17. Cronos- Absolutely splendid. Don't really know what else I can add since it's Del Toro.
18. The Vanishing- Really captivating, and even knowing the ending in advance, it didn't stop me from feeling I got punched in the gut.
19. Body Snatchers- Still not a big Abel Ferrera fan, but it was passable all things considered. Really liked Meg Tilly, and some of the effects are kinda cool.
20. The Void- Awesome effects, but all it made me want to do was watch From Beyond or Prince of Darkness again. Really disappointed.
21. The Devil's Candy- A bit slower than I thought it'd be, but that finale was absolutely great. That director is 2 for 2 now imo.
22. The Babysitter- McG still sucks, but I liked it a heck of a lot more than I thought I would. Some of the dialogue is pretty bad though.
23. Tenderness of the Wolves- Really slow, but Kurt Raab was legit creepy as fuck and it's directed rather well. I'll need to watch it again sometime in the future.
24. Hardware- Far from perfect, but super fun. Cool soundtrack, great gore (when it's there), and Stacey Travis is a babe.

Not sure what you're specifically referring to, but a lot lately have been officially licensed and that can be costly, especially on a smaller scale.

I watched the first couple episodes and it's terrible. Pretty much has nothing to do with the short story. The movie is OK besides the dopey ending.

I'm actually pretty excited to see Jigsaw this weekend. The directors' previous movies, Daybreakers and Predestination, were really good. Probably wasn't the greatest idea to release it the same Friday as Stranger Things S2 drops on Netflix, but whatever.

Does Creep 2 still kinda play the same game as 1? Or does it embrace his crazy side and just run with it? Because there's no more "is he a crazy murderer or an innocent weirdo" question.

More towards the latter, but It's more of a dark comedy rather than a horror movie this time around.

Hit movie #50 tonight. Some select ones

...The House on Sorority Row, 1983 - 4/5
Decent slasher with a really good, nutso ending

...Legion, 2010 - 3/5
Saw this in theaters back when, and actually got real high on it and loved it and got so much fun out of it. It was a huge suprise. I still feel that way about 2/3rds of the movie....but, the last third is not good. Like, obviously, but it's not as fun as the first two thirds either because it gets bogged down in paying off the ridiculous plot. When it was just basically Rio Bravo mixed with Twilight Zone, it was working greatly. That gets it 3/5 and still makes for a good watch.

...Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 - 5/5
often referred to as a more "fun" and less intense or gross film than the first...while the former is true, I find it just as gross and intense and unsettling as the first. Caroline Williams one of the all timer final girls.

...Tenebre - 4.5/5
Second best mystery Argento put together, behind Deep Red. Immensely watchable. Great ending.


...Jason X - 1.5/5
No reappraisals here, still sucks

....Cemetary Man - 4/5
nothing like it. so haunting, so darkly romantic but also really gross. Icky, i think, would be the best term. A few movies only in the 90s had this feel to them, no matter genre - "After Dark, My Sweet" and "Exotica" come to mind also Dead Ringers that are kinda draining but in a good, emotional way...all faves of mine.

Jigsaw was pretty meh. It raises too many questions, and really isn't that satisfying. I'd rank it after Saw 3 and 4.

Watched A Cure for Wellness last night, was good but over too overindulgent and dragged on for too long.
