  1. She played a few new songs when I saw here last month and they were quite good, looking forward to this!

    I haven't yet. They'd be nice cappers to finishing up each franchise though, I'll look in them!

    Nightmare on Elm Street - Wes Craven's New Nightmare and Freddy vs. Jason - A friend of mine and I went to a screening of Nightmare a few months ago, kind of what kicked off my slasher run. Thought I hadn't seen some of these, but watching them made me realize I had. Nightmare - This is a full on great movie and holds up super well. It was also cool to see it in a theater. Nightmare 2 : Freddy's Revenge - This one is so goofy. It's got such a strange teen movie vibe to it. I really liked it. Nightmare 3 : Dream Warriors - Probably my favorite, so much good stuff in this one. 4 -6 are all kind of bad. The super cartoony Freddy is kind of fun I guess, but it's so much not what I want from the character. New Nightmare - I love when meta stuff works well and this hits perfectly. Such a clever idea too. Only complaint I have is I don't like the Freddy make up . Freddy vs. Jason - I remember seeing this on opening night and being disappointed. I enjoyed it a bit more tonight, but it's still not a good entry to either franchise. Something tells me if this would've been made in the late 80s, it would've been a much better movie. Has too much polish or something.

    The Beer Thread

    Anyone recommend some breweries in Chicago? Off Color, Revolution and Forbidden Root are the ones I'm for sure hitting. But other suggestions would be appreciated. Also, anything good that gets distributed there that I should look for (I'm on the west coast)
  5. Nice! I dig the artwork on that too. $25 shipped to the US isn't terrible either.

    I usually go on a weeknight 2-3 weeks after something comes out, does the same thing. Hereditary was a little too must see for me to wait. I had a similar experience were people were making those noises, super annoying.

    I plan on working my way through the parts of Craven's filmography that I either haven't seen or haven't seen in a long time. Unfortunately, that means Scream 3 is on my watch list too. I don't think I've watched any of the Scream movies more than once and it was all when they came out (except for maybe 4, not sure if I ever saw that one).

    I'm definitely planning to now. I saw Martyrs right around when it came out and his name kind of slipped of my radar for whatever reason. Kind of relieved that he doesn't have too deep of a filmography, much easier for me to digest 2 films.

    I want to say the sleeping bag kill was in VII. And yeah, there's some sort of legal tangle about the rights currently. I see things about it periodically, but I usually just skim through the articles. I've always been curious about the game, but I'm in the same boat of having nothing to play it on. Looks cool though.

    Plenty of room for talk about both! I haven't seen anything Laugier has done outside of Martyrs, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect with Ghostland. The Among the Living comparison is pretty good now that you mention it. I don't think I would've put that together on my own, but I see it now.
  11. Ah, cool. I feel less need to track one down then, haha.
  12. That's just a flexi of an album track right?

    Sleeping bag kill was done in one of the others too, but it was against a tree. This one was better, but it's not a new thing for the series sadly.

    Friday the 13th - Jason X - spent the last couple months watching these. I'd apparently seen most of them at one point, as most of the kills seemed real familiar. Was real fun to take some time and watch these in order. Friday the 13th & Part II - Both of these are pretty bad. I could see why they did so well, but the mostly feel dated. Part III - Still my favorite. A lot of fun kills, it's well paced and it seems to have a good idea of what it is. Plus, we finally get the Jason we all know and love. When I was in high school, one of the theaters did a 3D showing and it was very rad, haha. The Final Chapter (IV) & A New Beginning (V) - Both duds overall. It seemed like a lot of kills were off screen, which takes a lot of the fun away. The idea of someone else taking up the hockey mask in V wasn't a terrible idea, but I can see why it wasn't well received. VI : Jason Lives - Another fun one. Reminds me of Part III a lot. VIII : The New Blood - This one is another dud. Can't remember what specifically made it bad though. VIII : Jason Takes Manhattan - I forgot how little of this actually took place in NY. Still super fun and a lot of ridiculous kills on the boat. Jason Goes To Hell - Idea behind this wasn't bad, but not for a Friday the 13th movie. Kind of like with V, not having actual Jason as the killer just doesn't work. Name is a tad misleading too, Jason wandering around hell and fighting demons could've been rad. Jason X - This one is so bad, but I have a bit of a soft spot for it because of how stupid it is too.

    I watched that a while back and agree completely. I had totally forgot about it until I looked it up. Big waste of time.
