Speaking of new releases, have any of you guys heard about "The Third Saturday in October"?

 

https://bloody-disgusting.com/reviews/3720933/the-third-saturday-in-october-review-the-slasher-homage-experiments-with-nostalgia/

 

It's a slasher movie in a "series" that skips from Part 1 to Part 5 and seems to be an homage to 80's movies. It's been making rounds through film festivals bit I haven't heard anything about it hitting streaming services yet. It's had some mixed reviews but I'm intrigued.

 

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 😂

Been in a horror mood recently so I’ll be making my way through the recs on this page. Watched Last Night in Soho and found it pretty disappointing. Also saw The Lure, which is a foreign film that’s been on my list for awhile and just popped up on HBOMax. It’s interesting in a “what if t.A.T.u. made horror musical out of The Little Mermaid?” kind of way. Also tried A Field Guide to Evil, but none of the stories really grabbed me.

First episode of 101 Greatest Horror Moments is up on Shudder now!  Can’t wait to check it out.  I’m a sucker for countdown shows like this.

Watched this last night. It was good! Gives decent context to the "moment" without being too spoilery.  Best part, as always, is learning about new movies I haven't heard of. Pulse, aka Kairo (2001) and The Orphanage (2007) are on my list to look out for. Some new commentators beyond the usual Shudder crew - I liked hearing from Andy Muschietti.

 

Also over the last few weeks I watched:

 

The House on Sorority Row (1982). Not the exploitation flick I was expecting. I actually really enjoyed this movie and found it had an "I Know What You Did Last Summer" vibe. Really liked it and it inspired me to check out...

 

Sorority Row (2009). Did not care for it. Maybe it's because it's from that era where protagonists were all gorgeous snarky smart asses and you rooted for them to get killed. Compared to the 1982 film where I felt bad that the characters were being picked off one by one in an atmosphere of dread, I felt zero attachment to any of these characters. Then, when it came to the reveal of the killer I was just unimpressed. 

 

Honeydew (2021). Good movie but I got hung up on how much I did not like the music. I think it could have felt like a totally different movie without the "quirky" music. 

 

Watcher (2022). This was mentioned a couple pages back and I completely agree - not terribly original but really well done. Kept me interested the whole time. Worth a watch.

You gotta!  Pulse and Orphanage are both so so good.

Saw Barbarian today and thought it was just OK. Intriguing premise and good performances, but I just didn’t like the way the story was told and without getting too spoilery there was one character I didn’t think needed to be there at all. Could have been a cool tight 80-90 minute movie but it wasn’t.

The Dahmer show is very heavy and difficult to watch. I had to pause it a few times in the first episode alone, but its very good. It truly reflects how much of a piece of shit the guy was, so I think the current debate on social media about the show glorifying him is misleading. Would recommend watching an episode of a more lighthearted show afterwards lol
