Jaws of Satan [aka King Cobra] (1981)

"D'you know why a pig is like a saint?
-No, Father.
Because he gets more praise after he's dead that when he's alive."

Alright. Satan has a family grudge against small-town priest Farrow, so he descends on his town in the form of a snake plague.

The Kindred (1987)

"One thing I learned from my daddy: never cross a guy that's got the eyes of a killer."

[Dan Curtis'] Dracula (1974)

"I haved already dined."

The Devil's Candy (2015)

"He's right--you are the sweetest candy of them all. I have to do that thing I don't want to do now."

Thoughts in horror thread.

Blade Runner 2049



Mind blowing; one of the best sci-fi movies I've seen in years; stuck in my grey matter for days after.

I saw Spiderman Homecoming this weekend. Great flick. I've no idea what the naysayers (not that there have been many of them) are talking about. Easily my favorite Spiderman movie, and one of my favorite MCU movies overall.

Video Games: The Movie (2014)

"From here on it goes deeper and deeper."

This crowd-funded documentary was very skewed. It skipped over a lot (Sega Genesis got about 15 seconds) and presented video games like the highest achievement of culture ever. Still, it was pretty interesting.

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989)

"I prayed that he would burn in Hell, but in my heart I knew that Hell would not have him."

I'm glad they beat up and imprison Michael. I mean killing teenagers and maiming small children is one thing but he purposely scratches and then accidentally totals a pristine '67 Camaro. Screw you, Michael, screw you!

I think this is both the funniest and meanest thing I've heard you say in a long time.

God's Outlaw: The Story of William Tyndale (1986)

"Tyndale is no coward, but when his own brother is paraded about-face on a horse and branded a heretic by none less than the Lord Chancellor . . .
-Yes, that was impolitic."

The Thing from Another World (1951)

"Think of what it means to the world!
-I'm not working for the world. I'm working for the Air Force."

Just felt in a mood to watch this again and wrangled the fam into it (well, the DVD actually belongs to Mom). It was definitely a cut above the average 50s B movie and I attribute that mostly to Howard Hawks' direction. I remember another director (maybe George Romero) talking about how it was unique in having people talk over each other. It's not the first movie to do so, but that kind of real-life attention was unusual for a sci-fi monster movie of the day.

Okay, I promise that if it ever comes up in real life, I will seriously consider saving the little girl before the Camaro.

Oh no, not that. I meant you came off pretty damn angry for somebody as well-mannered as yourself, for a moment there.

Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995)

"Go back to your loony bin."

I'm watching this as a I post and it's amazing how little I remember (even compared to 5 and 7). But Netflix recorded when I returned it and when I rated it. Repressed, I guess.

Ed Wood (1994)

"Why, if I had half a chance, I could make an entire movie using this stock footage. The story opens on these mysterious explosions. Nobody knows what's causing them, but it's upsetting all the buffalo. So, the military are called in to solve the mystery.
-You forgot the octopus.
No, no, I'm saving that for my big underwater climax."

Had he made it, this auteur would've been 93 today [10/10].

I think the first time I saw Curse of Micheal, I had been urging our sitter to bring it over from her place for weeks. Her last day watching us she finally did, and I must have marathoned it four times straight.

Vampirella (1996)

"You don't want to mess with us, Ms. T & A."

Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings (1993)

"What the f**k is this? Pet Sematary?"

They could've accurately called this "Son of Pumpkinhead," which could've been a fun classic horror nod. Oh well.

The image is right this time because this is one I only have on VHS.

I wasn't impressed. This movie felt like Seth MacFarlene and Adam Sandler directed a 75 minute raunchy parody of an episode of B:TAS. This was Teen Titans Go for adults. The Harley Quinn-centic episodes of B:TAS are far better and already covered the same ground. This could've worked better as an animated short.

Cult of Chucky (2017)

"And they call me sick?"

Not as good as Curse, but it did add a fresh (and bizarre) angle.

Tales of Halloween (2015)

"They ate all of my candy."

Better than I expected. 10 short Halloween-based horror stories. They have some overlap, trying to pull a Trick R Treat, but that's not important. Some of the stories were pretty fun.

Sad to hear. I'll wait for my library to get it. They get a lot of the DC Animated movies. Thanks.

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

"Can you move your seat forward?"


The more I see of Bucky/Winter Soldier, the more I like him (and I didn't like him very much in the comics). Guy should have his own solo flick, seriously.

I'm glad they handle Crossbones as they do(remember how he nearly became the new Juggernaut? Because nobody cared about that when it happened). Didn't expect the unmasking to go quite as it did, but damn if it wasn't a powerful moment.

And speaking of powerful, this film really hit you in the feels (must really leave the "sequels are inferior" crowd where it hurts).

Black Panther was great, made me remember first seeing him in the 1990s Fantastic Four cartoon. Outfit looked incredible, actor was everything you could ask for.

As for the villain, Helmut Zemo, he was truly chilling. I'm always going to know him as the man who launched the devastating Avengers Under Siege story (still need to read that whole thing, dunno if I even have a trade of it). They really redefined him here, and that was probably the hardest thing to do because he is not a character that needs it, he's so damn tremendous.

#FuckTheRaft, #Vault4Lyfe

The airport fight was stunning in so many ways. Really had some good laughs, and it was especially meta how Sam complains about Peter's gabbing.

And speaking of Peter, I was satisfied with how he was done...except for Aunt May. After seeing her as an old crone for so long, it is truly jarring seeing her looking like she's about to drop a platinum-selling country rock album.

Also liked how T'Challa finished the post-credits scene with "come at me, bro" flair. Majestic of him.

I need to grab this on DVD, naturally.

Night of the Demon 1957

"All good scientists are from Missouri: in other words, they should continually be saying, 'Show me.'"

Very good British horror movie about an American skeptic/psychologist (Dana Andrews) who investigates the death of his friend and the Satanic cult he was writing about only to have a curse he doesn't believe in put on him.

Kronos: Ravager of Planets (1957)

"The picture was probably a dog anyway."

It's funny you say that (since our tastes are normally close) because I haven't seen this movie yet (I'm sure I will eventually) and the main reason is because I did not like Winter Soldier at all and I particularly hated Bucky with his angsty attitude and very un-soldierlike teardrop hair.

Oh my god, it's like I don't even know you anymore, I feel so betrayed.


But yeah, he was hard to get into in WS. He's a ton better here.

Halloween H20:Twenty Years Later (1998)

Ha. Yeah, I think I'm getting burned out on all the comic blockbusters. I don't really get excited about them and a lot of them that people love I feel "meh" or actually dislike.
Actually, Bucky was only part of the reason I've dragged my feet. I generally don't like (there's a few exceptions) stories where people are framed, the good guys have deep, dark plans or the heroic team starts in-fighting. They were already starting that us vs. them stuff in Avengers 2 and Winter Soldier and I have the slightest feeling it might continue in Civil War. I want Cap and Iron Man banding together against Zemo not fighting each other.

50 Shades Darker - Watching this was like watching soft core with no pay-off. It was neither entertaining, compelling or amusing... just like its predecessor.

Funeral Home (1980)

"Rick, what would you say if I said I thought I'd heard voices coming from the basement?"

So-so Canadian slasher. I thought the ending was obvious.

Funeral Home was pretty boring IMO. A cheap, meandering Psycho rip off if I remember correctly. That normally wouldn't be enough to turn me off to a movie, it just moves very slowly.

I watched Escape From New York last night; tonight is Halloween. Yeah I am having a Carpenter love fest, it's that time of year.
