The Devil's Candy has the exact same weakness as other deathwave (that's what arthouse horror is called now, right?) movies in that the story wraps up just as it really begins to move forward. Where it thrives, though, is in subverting tropes (a family that literally loves being together, police who immediately go to work) and building a metric fuckton of tension. Ethan Embry going full indie has produced some of his best work and Pruitt Taylor Vince gives possibly the most unsettling horror performance of the decade. It's always great to see Tony Amendola pop up, too, and I was pleasantly surprised with both Shiri Appleby and Kiara Glasco.


Minor gripe, but with metal playing a back up role in this I was expecting a better soundtrack. Two classic Metallica tracks, new Slayer (yuck), and a handful of mallcore? Meh.

6/10, but I think this one's going to grow with age, entirely because of the villain and the paintings within.

Caught The Void last week. Jesus...that's the kind of horror I really wish we got a little more of. Tense, creepy as hell, and a constant nightmare tone.

Saw Neverknock, the new SyFy original movie (I guess?) and it wasn't very good. Maybe a 4/10 as the practical effect for the creature was surprisingly solid and the acting was rather decent. Bonus for it having the actress, Five from Dark Matter, in a lead role.

The script sucked and was very generic as far as the setup e.g. older sister suddenly takes younger sister as part of "friends to party" group and haunted house with story behind it actually is true amongst other stuff. The preying on fear stuff was what it was with very basic fears: Said older sister whom saw her mother die in a car crash/burn alive has a fear of fire, her date/girlfriend has a fear of dogs which becomes a Doberman Pinscher, the boy in the group has a fear of blood, and his girlfriend had a fear that I can't even remember.

The "creature" sucked hard. It had zero story purpose and despite the practical effect looking good, it really didn't matter. It wasn't a reference to anybody's particular fear and unlike Freddy Krueger, it couldn't even talk so it was creepy/menacing but that wore off very, very quickly after the first couple times you've seen it.

Did anyone bother checking out the long drawn out release of Amityville Awakening finally? It was free on Google Play (and still is til next week) and wow, now I see why this never made a full theatrical release until this past weekend (10 screens and a dismal total of UNDER a grand for all of the screens, lol!).

The film was a (blatantly piss poor) attempt to revitalize the franchise with a meta-heavy sequel from the original, kinda. Basically what they did was play things off in this manner: the events of the Amityville house that were portrayed in the original film were legit but all of the film adaptations werent and were just adaptations (which is true, I guess, but weird to see them meta-it-up like this). As it were, this family (including Bella Thorne who was god awful in her lines) moves into the house and things start unraveling just like the events of the initial Amityville possession (3:15AM, etc) and a very disjointed story follows involving a paralyzed brother who ends up being possessed (why him particularly, I'm not sure) and all hell breaks loose.

The thing that made this really fall off the map was the self-parody of the films in the franchise. There was literally not just one but a handful of scenes in this that were referencing the films in the series, and two scenes that they actually SHOW the DVDs of the films in the franchise, including a knock on the remake, which was also shown in DVD form (as was Amityville 2 for some reason). One scene in particular has the kids watching the original film on TV in the Amityville house and at 3:15 to try to rile up spirits. Talk about a head slapping moment.

To boot, the film was chopped and edited down from an R to a PG-13 and that showed as well.

I caught a showing of Happy Death Day and I'm shocked at how much I liked it. The PG-13 rating didn't bother me too much (Although R certainly could've made for some gnarlier scenarios) and the lead actress was absolutely fantastic. Her charisma carried the movie and I laughed several times. It ran out of steam towards the end, but I was very entertained overall.

I've heard this a lot from people. It's not a great movie, and the third act loses a bit, but overall, it's a fun watch.

Yeah, Happy Death Day was better than I thought it would be, but that third act was a bit like...ok enough already. Too many false endings, but otherwise a decent little horror that didn't suffer too bad from the PG-13 indeed.

So did anyone binge horror like a mofo for October? I had intentions of 31 films in 31 days, but am still backed up a bit on it, so this will roll into November. I'll post my list later with some thoughts on the films.

I saw a few films including The Bad Seed and Night of the Hunter but couldn't really sustain much momentum in this regard. I was hoping TCM would be more forthcoming as far as movie selection but this year in particular seemed rather light, which didn't help my cause as I planned to watch several 'classic' older movies.

Normally I would have listened to a lot of horror at work during the month. We can listen to music, and I put movies on my iPod. But I ended up listening to the podcast Lore the entire month. I never listened to it, but after watching the 6 episodes on Amazon, I decided to listen to the entire run, and I ended up going through it twice.

I did watch a couple, mainly the other day I watched The Haunting (my favorite horror movie), with the audio commentary for the first time, and it was fantastic. So much great information.

Happy Death Day was a lot better than expected. I concur with what everyone has said.  Also, The Babysitter surprised me too.  It definitely is more comedy-horror than anything, but it has some nice gore and it's a fun story.  McG-ness doesn't get in the way too much.

I... of all the categories it ends up there?? Only upside is if people watch it without knowing anything expecting an actual comedy.

Shot outside Pittsburgh on a shoestring budget by a band of filmmakers determined to make their mark, Night of the Living Dead, directed by horror master George A. Romero, is one of the great stories of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time. A deceptively simple tale of a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of recently dead, flesh-eating ghouls, Romero’s claustrophobic vision of a late-1960s America literally tearing itself apart rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combined gruesome gore with acute social commentary, and quietly broke ground by casting a black actor (Duane Jones) in its lead role. Stark, haunting, and more relevant than ever, Night of the Living Dead is back, in a new 4K restoration.

Disc Features

New 4K digital restoration, supervised by director George A. Romero, coscreenwriter John A. Russo, sound engineer Gary R. Streiner, and producer Russell W. Streiner

Night of Anubis, a never-before-presented work-print edit of the film
New program featuring filmmakers Frank Darabont, Guillermo del Toro, and Robert Rodriguez
Never-before-seen 16 mm dailies reel
New piece featuring Russo about the commercial and industrial-film production company where key Night of the Living Dead filmmakers got their start
Two audio commentaries from 1994, featuring Romero, Russo, producer Karl Hardman, actor

Also coming from Criterion



Quote
In this chilling adaptation of the best-selling novel by Thomas Harris, the astonishingly versatile director Jonathan Demme crafted a taut psychological thriller about an American obsession: serial murder. As Clarice Starling, an FBI trainee who enlists the help of the infamous Hannibal “the Cannibal” Lecter to gain insight into the mind of another killer, Jodie Foster subverts classic gender dynamics and gives one of the most memorable performances of her career. As her foil, Anthony Hopkins is the archetypical antihero—cultured, quick-witted, and savagely murderous—delivering a harrowing portrait of humanity gone terribly wrong. A gripping police procedural and a disquieting immersion into a twisted psyche, The Silence of the Lambs swept the Academy Awards (best picture, best director, best screenplay, best actress, best actor) and remains a cultural touchstone.

Disc Features

New 4K digital restoration, approved by director of photography Tak Fujimoto, with 2.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
Alternate 5.1 surround soundtrack, presented in DTS-HD Master Audio on the Blu-ray
Audio commentary from 1994 featuring director Jonathan Demme, actors Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, screenwriter Ted Tally, and former FBI agent John Douglas
New interview with critic Maitland McDonagh
Thirty-five minutes of deleted scenes
Interview from 2005 with Demme and Foster
Inside the Labyrinth, a 2001 documentary
Page to Screen, a 2002 program about the adaptation
Scoring “The Silence,” a 2004 interview program featuring composer Howard Shore
Understanding the Madness, a 2008 program featuring interviews with retired FBI special agents
Original behind-the-scenes featurette
Trailer
PLUS: An essay by critic Amy Taubin along with, in the Blu-ray edition, a new introduction by Foster; an account of the origins of the character Hannibal Lecter by author Thomas Harris; and a 1991 interview with Demme

    This is the most important horror film for me. It was the first horror film I saw at the age of 5. It's poetic justice that it's being released on my birthday. YES!

    I finally finished my 31 days of horror, albeit a bit delayed...few thoughts about each....

    1. Holidays (badly done anthology film on Netflix, not really worth a look)
    2. Devil's Candy (Echo the sentiments here, its really worthwhile)
    3. Gerald's Game (Might be the most fucked up Stephen King film adaptation I've seen, in an effective way)
    4. Beyond the Gates (Had a nice retro vibe going for it, otherwise...eehhhhhh)
    5. Girl in the Photographs (Better than I figured this would be)
    6. The Babysitter (Fun wild ride of a film)
    7. Zombeavers  (I was so stoned during this one that I flat out barely remember a damn thing about it lol)
    8. They Look Like People (Didnt care this one at all, really.)
    9. Happy Death Day (commented before about this one)
    10. Tokyo Ghoul (this manga to live action adaptation was EXCELLENT to say the least. Really liked it, was worth the drive to see the one night only viewing)
    11. House on Willow Street (This one got me good)
    12. Amityville: The Awakening (Purely so bad it might be somewhat entertaining shit)
    13. Raw (This one really delivered on a different level than I figured it would)
    14. Cult of Chucky (One of the better Chucky movies in the franchise IMO)
    15. Jigsaw (One of those films that we didnt really need, but it was ok)
    16. The Snowman (This felt like half of the film was cut, just didnt flow well at all)
    17. 1922 (Another dark Stephen King adaptation on Netflix, not nearly as good as Geralds but held its own)
    18. We Are Still Here (Nice twists and turns in this one)
    19. A Dark Song (Another one I hardly remember due to herbal influence, but from what I recall, it was uniquely different)
    20. Flatliners (Original....yeah I know, is this horror?)
    21. Flatliners (Remake.....pretty much absolutely worthless on every level. Total bore of a film/remake)
    22. Contracted (See Contracted 2)
    23. Contracted 2 (Watching the Contracted films again did NOT do them any favors. Pretty much shit)
    24. Stake Land
    25. Stake Land 2 (I really liked the first one, but thought the second one took a bit of a dive a bit, but yet still very solid)
    26. Creep
    27. Creep 2 (I never knew Mark Duplass could be so fucking effective as a really fucked up serial killer, both films played very well against each other)
    28. Houses October Built
    29. Houses October Built 2 (Both of these are really low budget, but the scares are effective. Too many plot twists and holes to even imagine, though. Both bad and good plot twists)
    30. Wolf Creek
    31. Wolf Creek 2 (Watched these again to finally segway to the Wolf Creek 6 part TV series that aired last year which I finally need to get to now)

    Next run is to catch up on horror TV for the rest of the year, such as the aformentioned Wolf Creek mini-series, Stranger Things, American Horror Story, The Strain, Bates Motel, etc. I've been incredibly behind on all of those the past year or two.
