    Also saw this over the weekend, it's okay. It is going along with all the standard stuff, including borrowing a lot of Stephen King Imagery, and then all of a sudden the twist was one i did not see coming

    So another fairly recently- watched notable is "A Dark Song"

    On Netflix Last I knew.
    Reminiscent of "Hereditary" in a positive sense, in both it's slowly building momentum and it's surreal ending. A refreshing movie that breaks free of the cliches of gore, jump scares, that kind of thing

    Babadook sucked. Someone needs to buy that actress a hairbrush, too.
    Don't care for newer horror movies; the plot is always the same..a couple hot chicks & a couple nerdy guys getting chased through the woods by something that you can't focus on 'cause the camera is too jerky, and they get picked off one at a time until the last chick is stumbling back to civilization covered in blood. No thanks.
    The best horror movies are from the 50s in B&W. Here are a few of my choices:

    It! The Terror From Beyond Space. (The original "Alien")
    The Monster of Piedras Blancas
    Curse of the Demon
    The Crawling Eye
    Rawhead Rex
    Silent Hill
    Damned by Dawn
    The Thing (original)

    Not sure about new horror movies, but House from 1977 is a hoot!

    I was on a road trip early last week to north GA. My friend's daughter works for Warner Bros. as an executive producer and was at the Pinewood Studios in Fayetteville and asked us to stop by. They were reshooting several scenes from the latest Annabelle movie, #3. I'm not familiar with any of the movies, I think starting with Contingent or something like that. But it was amazing being in the studio watching the video process. Very large warehouse type buildings with complete houses built inside for shooting the movie. The latest Zombiland movie is also being filmed there. Great experience.
    I haven't read any of the above posts, so I don't know if these movies have been mentioned. I just became aware of them due to the trip.

    I've been reading with great anticipation the hype on Midsommar, but hadn't seen Aster's Hereditary until last night. I think this guy creates chilling suspense like no other director, but blew it at the end. The actual ending (outcome) was brilliant, but the 15 minutes of how they got from strange realism to people flying around did it for me.

    No, you don't have to throw every scary trick you can think of in a movie to make sure everybody goes "wow" at the end.

    That little girl Charlie (Milly Shapiro), however, was perhaps the creepiest character I've ever seen in a movie.

    I've had SHUDDER for awhile now, it's pretty cool and has a pretty decent selection
    "Colour out of Space" is pretty cool, for a Nick Cage Lovecraft-set-to-big screen thing, as far as that kind of thing goes. It is highly reminiscent of Shining in a few spots.
    Hagazussa was pretty disturbing

    My younger son and I watched this last night, pretty hilariously awesome

    (I do think the "hilariously" was unintentional :))
