  1. As discussed, changed this to a Nadja / Baker catch all thread. Feel free to post anything related to Nadja, his solo project or anything else he may be involved in. I know that this is a vinyl specific thread, but I don't think that any of us would be upset if CD/Digital news is shared either.

    I watched Mom & Dad last night and it was a dud. The premise was great, it was just executed really poorly. There are some good crazy Cage moments and that's about it.

    Veronica is from the director of [rec]

    A friend and I watched Boys in the Trees and Veronica this week. I'd recommend both of them highly. Very different movies. Veronica is traditional horror, done very well and Boys in the Trees has a dark fairy tale vibe going for it.
  5. Some Cheap Vinyl at Amazon

    It's a dollar amount, not terrible the few times I've ordered from an EU Amazon. Prime accounts only apply to the country you're in.
  6. Flenser Releases

    They're releasing the new drowse album too. Good stuff https://nowflensing.com/collections/pre-orders/products/drowse-cold-air-lp
  7. ^ They posted they'll have those with them on the west coast tour too

    It's flawed, but fun. I second this. The use of Sunn O))) music worked very well too!

    I watched both, here's what I thought about them at them time. Haven't thought about either of them since posting, so no real lasting impression from either.
  10. Looking forward to this. I loved Crow, but it's too heavy to put on regularly and I could use some more Mt. Eerie in my life

    Here's what I watched over the last week Hatchet II - This was a real fun one and exactly what I wanted in a slasher. Not serious at all, great kills, tons of blood and enjoyable practical effects. Trying to get to the third one soon, want to be able to watch Victor Crowley when it's available. Moebius - Very strange film. I'd say it's a psychological thriller with a mild bit of body horror. It's completely dialogue free. Not an easy recommendation, but it's short and an interesting watch. Gerald's Game - I thought this was a pretty faithful adaptation of the novel. It was well done and I think he did a very good job translating the story into a movie. I didn't really care for the book overall (especially the ending), I was just too curious to see how Flanagan made this work to pass it up. Dark S1 - I'd say I maybe 60-70% really liked this. The time travel / mystery aspects of it kept me interested, but the drama side of things tended to drag and didn't do nearly as much for me. It's also a gorgeous looking show and the score fits almost perfect, a few bonus points there. I also watched Carrie and Christine, turning my weekend into a bit of a Stephen King themed few days.

    I had that on my computer for quite a while and it didn't survive the last purge of unwatched movies I did. I'll have to keep it in mind the next time I'm looking for a good psychological thriller. I like creepy!
  13. Couple of new tapes from Majeure / AE Paterra (Zombi). Tad expensive, but combined shipping makes the it more tolerable. https://vcorecordings.bandcamp.com/merch

    Oh yeah, I don't feel like he's disingenuous. It's mostly that something about how he presents his stories rubs me the wrong way. I think I always read it as a combination of trying to hard to shock and being cheesy in an embarrassing way. I don't fault anyone for liking his work, just doesn't do anything for me.
  15. The official Horror fan topic

    Funny, I can't stand Zombie's film (or really anything he does). He seems all style and absolutely no substance to me. I gave up after Lords of Salem. I will admit that I liked his trailer in Grindhouse though.
  16. The Men- Drift- Release Date 3/2

    They lost me with New Moon. I keep checking out their new work, it seems to interest me less and less.

    I'm pretty certain I had that downloaded a while back and deleted it due to a poor Rotten Tomato's score or something. Now that it's on Netflix, it's kind of caught my interest again. Here's what my weekend consisted of The Monster - I thought this was so well done all around. It felt similar to some other movies I've seen, but they executed it really well. Seems like it flew under the radar, even by A24 standards. Timecrimes - I've seen most of Vigalondo's work, but somehow this eluded me. I thought it was extremely fun, which I didn't expect. I'm guessing most people in here have seen it already, but I'd recommend it if not. More of a scifi movie than horror though. Non-horror things I watched and liked - April & The Extraordinary World and The End of The Fucking World S1

    Happy Death Day - Surprisingly fun and kind of cute. I was in the mood for something light that I could watch while enjoying a few pints and this was perfect for that.
  19. The official Horror fan topic

    Same here. We Are The Flesh was smart about keeping it short too. 80 minutes was about perfect, I don't know if the movie would've benefited from being any longer.
  20. The official Horror fan topic

    We Are The Flesh - I really enjoyed this, but I can easily see why the reviews have been so mixed. It's pretty abstract, creepy, violent and sexually graphic. Not for someone who needs a cohesive narrative at all. Be curious to see what the the folks in here think of it. Wolf Creek S2 - Pretty big step back from season one. This felt pretty generic and really should've been done as a 2 hour movie, not a ~6 hour series. It was still fun and I mostly enjoyed it (I'm a sucker for dumb slasher stuff), just didn't bring anything new to the table like season one did.
  21. Got one of these a few months ago and have been pretty happy with it. A movie costs like $11-15 here anyway, so even if I see a movie a month I'm saving a little money. I'm trying to go every week, but realistically it's about every 2. I also work by an AMC and a Regal, so it's easy to pop out and grab a ticket for a later showing.

    Yeah, not sure why, but the premise and presentation completely fell flat for me. Save for a handful of episodes, I haven't been overly impressed with the Netflix seasons. They're not unwatchable by any means, something just seems different.

    Spent my NY with a few movies, one dud and one good one. Here Alone - It was like an extra bad Walking Dead episode (which I already think is terrible). It wasn't so bad that I turned it off, but I ended up doing shit around the house with it in the background once the halfway mark hit. Brawl in Cell Block 99 - Not horror, but it's the Bone Tomahawk director's second film and I'm sure there's some interest here. I really, really liked it. It's paced about the same as Bone Tomahawk, so expect a much slower movie that you might think it'd be. Vaughn is great and it's very violent, looked like mostly (or all) practical effects). I'd recommend it if you have a soft spot for exploitation films. Black Mirror S04 - I was on call this weekend, so I was stuck at home and had time to knock out all six. I didn't care for the Star Trek one. The middle four were decent, but I'm not sure if there's any stand out episodes like San Junipero from last season. The black and white episode and the dating ones were probably the strongest two. The last episode was awful, felt like a Tales from the Crypt episode without the fun.
  24. Happy New Year everyone! I was on call, drank in moderation and was in bed at normal time (between 12:30-1:00). Kind of a normal evening I suppose!

    A Cure For Wellness - It was a beautiful looking film and past that, it was a turd. The ending was real easy to figure out, dialogue was terrible, it was VERY poorly paced and too long by about 45 minutes. The protagonist was painfully unlikeable too. They Look Like People - Nothing special, but I found myself liking it, even though I couldn't really say why.
