why not?

I saw It (the remake) a few days ago. Pretty damn good. Definitely deserves the praise and money it's been making. That third act is nuts.

I'm gonna check out A Quiet Place when I can, I've heard nothing but good things about it.

Oh, and watch Return of the Living Dead. It's good. Like, crazy, insane, stupidly high amounts of good.

Wow, this made me realize that there actually aren't that many horror movies where the monster is a big cat. That's....actually kind of surprising now that I think about it.

Spoiler

also "dick maas"

Saw season 1 of the Castlevania show today. It's.....pretty decent, it's a bit expositiony for my tastes, but the animation is solid and the creature designs are neat. Looking forward to season 2.

I have seen The First Purge and Unfriended: Dark Web not too long ago and one is pretty bad, and the other... well, let's say it's even worse than the predecessor.

It's a shame too because both of those franchises are good ideas for movies, to me at least.

I honestly compare The Purge to both Saw and Final Destination.

They are franchises that have great concepts and I would be lying if some of their respective entries in either of their franchises haven't been decent. (i.e. Purge (Anarchy, Election Year), Saw (the first film, II, VI, Jigsaw), Final Destination (the second film, the third film, the fifth film)). Hell, the fanbase to either films have been actually really respectful and I really like that a whole lot. Though it's sad that some films that come out in the franchises don't properly tie in their storylines the more they come out.

I've always thought that The Purge would work better as an anthology television series. There's so much to do with the concept but every movie is just so fucking bland. My co-worker and I were talking about it a month ago and came up with a bunch of different concepts for episodes of "Purge TV": a lite-remake of Assault on Precinct 13 where a Planned Parenthood's staff have to defend themselves and facility from militant anti-abortionists, a heist pulled off by college graduates breaking into a credit company to destroy their debt/loan records, a comedic episode about a bumbling cheapskate avoiding all the carnage just so they can plunder bulk toilet paper from CostCo, a visceral revenge short about a sexual assault support group hunting down their abusers...there's a lot of potential here for much more intimate, character-driven stories. But nah.

And this was a week before they actually did announce a Purge TV series.......which I do not have high hopes for lmao

Apparently it's really generic and paint-by-the-numbers as far as horror movies go. I don't even care about Slender Man as a monster but still, it's a shame what Sony (allegedly) did to chop this movie to bits. I'm sure someone could squeeze some creepy, unique imagery out of a creepypasta monster in a theatrical film. I mean, someone did that with Candle Cove on television and that worked out decently well.

Yeah... pretty much, but the actors were decent enough. They really could've done more with Slendey being in the shot without you realizing it much like the eye test photos people have creatively done with him. The times they did, it's pretty darn clever because once he moves you see he really was just there in the background the whole time... but IDK why they don't do this since it seems like a Slendy staple...

There are times he looks like he was pulled from the game, but other times (probably due to the suit actor) that he looks pretty eerie and creepy. The Slender madness was portrayed well too...

So yeah, they probably could've pulled something better out of it... but thank goodness it wasn't more found footage stuff. Maybe that's why I liked it since it was above that expectation XD
