  1. Anything good on streaming that's relatively new? Looking for something that's scary but not gory (wife's preference). Just striking out lately.
  2. Nice. I’d love to catch him, but he hasn’t come by here yet - they just announced a new run for him that *also* doesn’t come through here, but there are apparently October dates forthcoming still…
  3. Good deal! Like I said, it was a great show and an amazing opportunity we couldn’t miss. Matt was super nice and chill also. We’ve seen Dave Bazan / Pedro the Lion a couple times via Undertow’s living room show setup, and he’s (unsurprisingly) awesome in the uber-small setting as well.
  4. Me and a buddy did this a few years back / it was a great show as long as you go in knowing (I assume this has not changed) that he’s only playing solo material + 1 Centaur song (+1 cover).
  5. I can see that logic. Ours was a 930 showing, which my local had screenings for a few nights this past week, but only 930 showings. It was pretty well sold, not sold out but fairly full, and I don’t think there was any issue whatsoever with our crowd. I was also a little worried about that, having seen it already, and knowing that it’s certainly a bit more blurry and art house than people might expect, but crowd was really receptive and had some really good interaction / reactions on some of the creepier/scarier parts, and it was overall a fun experience. I’m not sure if I liked it any *more* seeing it in the theater or not, but it was fun to get out anyway. My wife and I watch The Vigil back in 2020? 2021? Whenever it came out, and we enjoyed it quite a bit.
  6. Going to catch Skinamarink at my local arthouse in a couple hours. I’m pretty sure / hoping it’ll play better in a completely dark room with booming sound, but I suppose I’ll see!
  7. It’s so great, a good step back up from Synchronic, which I enjoyed but no where near to the level of their other stuff. I never thought I’d see a cinematic palimpsest, but here we are.
  8. Yeah, I watched Christmas, Bloody Christmas last night and enjoyed it enough - it also took around 30 minutes until something really happened but it was fun for the last two-thirds.
  9. I did not expect the adult swim Yule log thing to be as long as it was, but it was an enjoyably ludicrous little ride. Not quite as surreal as the infomercials that they put out years ago, which I liked more, but I still love the sheer audacity of putting something like this as an oddball surprise out into the world.
  10. I watched Skinamarink last night - viewed/acquired through nefarious means - and it's fine. It's like 95% arthouse / experimental and 5% horror; I would love the chance to see it in a theater though (I think the theatrical release will be super limited though). Coming to Shudder sometime next year. I'm out of the loop so only yesterday heard of the upcoming When Evil Lurks movie (which isn't even wrapped filming) but now it can't get here quick enough.
  11. Yeah, I saw this referenced somewhere else this morning and am planning on checking it out in the next couple days. Was halfway through a movie yesterday when the school called and I had to go pick up a sick kid 😭 so I have to find time to finish that first. Free time has been crap lately...
  12. I'll be interested to hear your overall thoughts on this once you're done. It's my least favorite of the Netflix series he's down, by a fairly decent margin as well. There are certainly parts of it I enjoyed - my overall response is that it's "fine" but that's about it - but I do have some fairly strong feelings about the last episode.
  13. Just saw that Something in the Dirt has its theatrical release this coming week, highly highly recommend that you check it out if you haven’t had a chance to yet. Benson and Morehead remain my two favorite directors in the speculative space. No movies for me tonight, catching Godspeed you Black Emperor at a local show.
  14. Watched Barbarian last night since it’s on HBO now and thought it was fine? I did enjoy the location / set work quite a bit, but ultimately found it oddly inconsistent in tone and pacing. Again, it was fine, but I thought it would be better based on reception.
  15. Yep, same issues for me around not being able to quote and the notification issue as well. The issues are occurring for me on Chrome, Edge, and Safari - on my phone, work laptop, personal laptop, and personal computer.
  16. I thought VHS 99 was pretty meh. The first few minutes are cool and definitely feel like stuff I used to watch in the late 90’s but none of the shorts were better than alright. The last short was by the same guy who stared in / directed Deadstream, and was probably the one I liked the best, but overall it was super underwhelming.
  17. We watched Deadstream on Shudder last night - found footage film with a heavy dose of Evil Dead 2 - esque silliness. I enjoyed it fine for what it is; the location they used is super creepy, but it never gets overly scary (boo); it does a decent enough job of balancing being unnerving and funny though. It's worth a free watch.
  18. Yeah, that’s a great one for sure. His follow up - Piercing - is great in a very different way.
  19. Yep, sure enough, I found Dan's post on the Landland IG. I'll stalk their site to see if they drop APs, as they typically almost always sell them down the road.
  20. I dig that. Looks like Jay Ryan lettering, so I assume he did the print? I don’t see it on his instagram, but he certainly doesn’t post everything over there. Definitely want to grab a copy, hopefully I can just do so at the Dallas show.
  21. First I’m seeing anything on this. I’ll probably check it out when it hits streaming; I’m a big Alabama fan so I’ll check it out for that odd-tie-in if for no other reason 😂
  22. It was brand new to me as of yesterday. Was mostly just bullshitting around online trying to find a movie and came across it.
  23. We watched the isolation/quarantine-produced found footage film “He’s Watching” last night; I really liked it, and was unsettled through most of it so it’s effective. We had to rent it, doesn’t appear to be available on streaming yet. Couple caveats - It does veer into student-film / arthouse fare on occasions (which I enjoy, but certainly not for everyone) + it probably goes on a bit too long. Regardless, I recommend it.
  24. We watched this last night and it was fine. It’s pretty straightforward - and yeah, nothing new here - but I guess it was enjoyable enough. We started watching Wellington Paranormal and are all caught up to “live” now - great funny show. Also very excited for series 2 of Los Espookys starting next month! Not horror at all but we finally started checking out the Apple TV+ series Mythic Quest and love it so far.
