My Halloween horror film was Till Death.

Which wasn't really a horror film but more a thriller I guess.  Interesting premise and it plays out with a lot less stupidity than something like Halloween Kills.

It was only really let down by Megan Fox who has all the personality and acting chops of a very aloof cat.  If you did that exact same film but with a decent actress like Mary Elizabeth Winstead, it'd be a much easier film to recommend.  But it was pretty short and never dull, so I quite liked it.

Q is such an odd film.  I love it but it's not a great monster movie but as a bit of a character piece about Michael Moriarty's character it is absolutely fantastic.

The Babadook

I didn't like that one much.  The kid was super annoying (deliberately but still hard to watch) and the Babadook thing reminded me of Papa Lazaru and that made it less scary.

VHS94 next though.  It's meant to be pretty good.

Praise Raatma.

Yeah this is a good one.

It was.  Really enjoyed it.  Still a bit variable in quality as you'd expect but higher highs and more tolerable lows compared to the last one.

The one with Dean Winters is Hellseeker, the one I just watched.  The one about the cop is Inferno.  Sorry about the nit-picking.   

No worries.  I found it quite forgettable, so I'm sure to be fuzzy on details.

It did that thing where someone is basically reliving a bad day and that's hell.  It's how they did hell in Angel (the Buffy spin-off thing) and more recently Lucifer (one of the worst shows of all time).

That does have a degree of creepiness to it I guess.

I'll be starting series 3 of Succession soon.  It's basically the best thing on TV.

Currently enjoying Far Cry 6.  It's very Ubisoft, as you'd expect, but they are very good at putting you in a world and then giving you ALL THE TOYS to destroy things with.  If I've got any criticism, it's that it's too easy.  So much so that I actually started equipping a weaker load out.

But there's still a ton of fun to be had trying to stealth your way through a base, getting caught and then fending off helicopters with an EMP grenade launcher.  Fun stuff.

Currently reviewing Carrion where you basically play as the thing from The Thing.  It's a metroidvania kind of affair.  I'm not sure I'm liking it.  The controls are a bit fiddly.  Will stick with it though.

Pictsy, one of the Hellraiser films was on Netflix a few years back.  It was about a cop.  Pinhead and the rest were barely in it.

Hilariously, the blurb on it said something like 'starring the smouldering Dean Winters.'

Halloween III is superb. By far and away my favourite entry in the series, though then again, my second favourite entry if Rob Zombies Halloween II so once again my taste is at best suspect.

H3 is fun and it feels a lot more like a John Carpenter film than the first one did.  It's definitely got a They Live thing going on with it.  It's not very cohesive.  Like early on a guy is killed by the world's slowest car but then it turns out he was probably a super-strong robot.  Also, considering her dad was just horribly murdered, the lead actress seems incredibly flirty.

But it's enjoyable and that's the main thing.

Rob's got this thing where most of his horror seems to be based around redneck types being pricks and I turned off his first Halloween film about five minutes in after some dickhead yelled 'I'm gunna skullf**k yewww in the eye' or something.  Not for me that.

I just watched Halloween Kills and, much like all the Halloween films, it was terrible in every way.

'The Halloween III: Season of the Witch enjoyer has logged online'

Say what you will about Halloween 3 but it's the only one in the franchise that isn't boring.

Judge Death, obviously.

Joker was alright in that 'watch it once but never again' kind of way.  It felt like a slog in the same way that the recent Batman films did but I didn't hate it.

I just watched Halloween Kills and, much like all the Halloween films, it was terrible in every way.

Also watched The Descent 2 which was a disappointing retread of the first film and entirely unnecessary.

I love horror anthology/portmanteau films so I also rewatched V/H/S and V/H/S/2.  Both of which are highly variable in scares, acting and quality but both watchable enough.

Rewatched this twice in the last few weeks and its still the perfect level of absolute vulgarity and strangely, unexpectedly layered gags. I despise the term "ahead of its time" as it generally says a lot more about the critic than the material, but Tom Green strangely understood the shift in taste from sitcom comedy to abstract, often uncomfortable humor without any real rhyme or reason for the sake of vulgarity.

I genuinely love this movie, its fucking hysterical.

it's a joy.  I love it.
