05. 2.0* - Cabin Fever by Travis Zariwny (2016)
An utterly pointless remake. The original Cabin Fever is hardly 15 years old, this remake adds nothing of interest and pretty much rehashes the story with a different set of actors. The direction is boring, the pacing a little slow and the horror lacks impact. At least the final 30 minutes were semi-decent, but it's not really worth it, unless you're desperate for a horror flick.

#20 King Kong (1933, Merian C. Cooper & Ernest B. Schoedsack) 6/10
Anyone got Mitchell Prettyplace’s definitive 18-volume study on the film or a number to the King Kong Kultists?

Thrill-O-Meter: “Yeah well, you know, he did love her, folks.”


Image

#21 In Fabric (2018, Peter Strickland) 5/10
Co to kurwa, Magiczne Drzewo for senile chic textiles fanatics? Reminded me of ‘Perfume: The Story of a Murderer’ and department stores, which I don’t care about either

Thrill-O-Meter: What are you on about?


opening up terrifying vistasShow
That is not dead which can eternal lie.
And with strange aeons even death may die.



Image


#1 The Evil Dead (1981, Sam Raimi) (2nd+ viewing) 9/10 (from 6)
“What the hell was that? Are you trying to kill us?”
“Hey don’t blame me, it’s your steering wheel. The damn thing jerked right out of my hand."
“I don’t understand, I just had this thing in for a tune-up yesterday and they said they’d go over everything”
“Yeah, well you better get it back, since the damned thing don’t work. Only thing that does work is this lousy horn.”

The film never once pretends to side from the perspective of the human characters, we don’t see the world from their point of view. It’s a masterpiece in showing the humans as prey, who are -- since the very beginning -- stalked in their car from behind and around. Invisible forces are rushing in through the forests, eyes are exploiting every vulnerability, emergent bizarrities begin locking in, cornering, and invading their victims now trapped within an occult trap, a magical vortex, Their playground. And the film transports one to the numinous field.

“You mean no one’s seen this place yet?”

Thrill-O-Meter: 4 out of 10 car honks because it’s not "The Ultimate Experience In Grueling Terror" for nothing (although in a sense, out there, maybe Nothing is exactly how).


Image


#2 Street Trash (1987, James M. Muro) 7/10
The mishaps and bumpy adventures of Brooklyn’s homeless alcoholics, in an environment saturated with ominous sonics and dissipating lethal substances, where chaos is bound to erupt at any given moment, nothing is devoid of complete absurdity, and no human interaction is without banter or clashing interests. There are junkyard aesthetics, whooshing camera movements, seething paint discharges, gas masks, graffiti, lots of liquor and dirt, so this is a real joy to watch. Moreover the opening sequence is among the finest I’ve seen this year

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out of 10 screams for realistically creating a world of desperation and menace
Hilarit-E-Meter: 3 out of 10 laughs for -- nonetheless -- seeing sympathisable characters trying to keep up high spirits, participating in an atmosphere of glee, misconceptions, and farcicality


#3 Epidemic (1987, Lars von Trier) 6/10
SWAP: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4559

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams, although it was nice to see a psychotic break for a high-count screaming character within the film


#4 The Dead Don’t Die (2019, Jim Jarmusch) 6/10
Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams
Hilarit-E-Meter: 2 out of 10 laughs


#5 カメラを止めるな! / Don’t Stop the Camera! / One Cut of the Dead (2017, Shinichirou Ueda) 3/10
This is so metafictional and boring it shouldn’t even count it (it’s basically like watching two daft DVD bonus content special features with awkward music), but since I expected this to be a horror-comedy prior to watching and ended up sitting through it anyway, I’ll just count it along, to be generous

Thrill-O-Meter: Nope
Hilarit-E-Meter: 0 out of 10 laughs


Image

#6 The Happening (2008, M. Night Shyamalan) 7/10
Thrill-O-Meter: 4 out of 10 screams for an increasingly more intricate and intense (albeit somewhat oddly campy, urgent, cloying) depiction of societal disintegration/weirding and psychological breakdowns following a coiling wave of inexplicable mass suicide, and also because it’s a smart film presenting a provoking scenario, cultivating connections, influencing the weather


#7 Freaks (1932, Tod Browning) 6/10
Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams


Image

#8 Evil Dead II (1987, Sam Raimi) (2nd viewing) 8/10 (from 6)
Groovy.

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out of 10 screams for undead matter metamorphoses, body dismemberments, grotesquely weird coordinated ‘unity-in-separation’, alien hand syndrome, psychological manipulations, and “dirty bastards” variably ridiculing frail humanity on a whim


Image

#9 Army of Darkness (1992, Sam Raimi) (2nd viewing) 8/10 (from 6)
Groovy.

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out of 10 screams for dark fantasy action with an extensive bestarium


Image

#10 In the Tall Grass (2019, Vincenzo Natali) 7/10
Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out of 10 screams for an intensive voyage into alien topologies and curvatures of spacetime


#11 Menu Total (1986, Christoph Schlingensief) 4/10
SWAP: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4568

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 “MAAMAAAAAA”s, among a million other squealed words
Hilarit-E-Meter: 0 out of 10 laughs


#12 Student Bodies (1981, Michael Ritchie & Mickey Rose) 7/10
An entertaining compact dissection of the protocol-like tropes and rules operating the rhythms of slashers and a parody of all the American cultural wackiness corresponding to and reflected by slashers. The villain in the story is none other than the viewers themselves, reproducing the audience’s desires and logic. Kill count, “boobies”, suspect, eggplant, money, education, talking in class, “who would logically have access to the murder weapons”, “the chair”, social exclusion, the game, important plot point, rebellion, prom, … all these somehow mass appeal American cultural stocks, social investments, micro-intensive aspects of daily lives and fantasies. I don’t know, it’s such a bizarre world for me. This film gets that across and -- like, say, ‘South Park’, ‘The Simpsons’, the Coen bros. and ‘Freaks and Geeks’ I guess -- it’s elucidative and compelling. The ultimate perceptive fuck you. And perhaps this just shows regular genre slashers aren’t for me. Anyway, the film also holds sway perfectly on its own, it has many authentically original humorous threads on top of everything

#16 Frankenweenie (2012, Tim Burton) 6/10
Thrill-O-Meter: “The fear of loss is a path to the Dark Side. Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them, do not. Miss them, do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed, that is. Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.”

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

2. Kyûketsu dokuro-sen / The living skeleton (Jap 68)

Concerns the ghostly aftermath of a shipboard crime. I really liked this even if it was dark (screen glare didn't help either). Initially has to turn it off because the remote had gone from bad to worse, so I got a replacement and tried again.

4. Candyman (Bernard Rose-1992) {1 Official List}
Man, it just never is explained what the Candyman's plan was. He wants his legend to grow, but now include Helen? Wouldn't burying the hook with her accomplish that? Why was he susceptible to fire? Guess that's why sequels exist.

16. Exorcist: The Beginning (2004)
★ ½
A bunch of random story threads and a sound mix working overtime to be scary. Renny Harlin knows what a scare is supposed to look and sound like, but he doesn't know how to produce such magic. Stellan Skarsgård is well-cast as young Father Merrin, but it's a soulless exercise.

17. Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist (2005)
★ ★
Interesting to watch the two films together, adding up to one interesting failure. Now the story makes sense and the Merrin's inner battle with his faith is right in Paul Schrader's wheelhouse, but the effects are so terrible and often throw into scenes where they don't belong I have to think they were done without his approval.

36. Nightmares (1983) 4/10
An anthology film featuring four supernatural tales; a woman goes out for cigarettes while a maniac is on the loose, a young video game pro is determined to beat an extremely difficult arcade game, a priest struggles with his faith after the death of a young boy, and a housewife is terrorized by a giant rat. There are a surprising number of 'big' names in this, but spotting some young faces is about the extent of any enjoyment in this. All the stories are boring, with really dumb characters and the 'twists' make no sense. The video game segment has the most interesting plot but just kind of fizzles out, and the rat one had some potential but the screaming wife and the awful effects made it laughable.

11. A bucket of blood, by Roger Corman (1959) 7/10

A standard tale of a dumb man becoming a murderer, but this film explores the beat generation and is rather funny. Dick Miller plays the main character, too...

12. Mil gritos tiene la noche, by J.P. Simon (1982) 7,5/10

Cheap, and full of plotholes, but the gory sequences and high bodycount make this film very entertaining and spectacular...

39. Screamplay (1985) 6/10
A Hollywood screenwriter finds himself caught in the middle of a slew of murders that are strikingly similar to those written in his new screenplay. For a super low budget film with cheap sets and bad acting, this film makes the most of what it has and is surprisingly good and funny. The cinematography is pretty fun and quirky and it never really looks dull. The lead actor is pretty amusing and hams it up but not so much that he's annoying. Though it's pretty entertaining all the way through, it does feel like it overstays its welcome just a little, and could've been just a little sharper or more tightly edited. Still, this deserves to be seen by more.

Ugh, realised I got my numbering stuffed up, I fixed it with this post.

01. Char Man (2019)
#BINGO - B2 (ghosts + shoddy police work)

This was a big letdown. Char Man is a local legend in the nearby town of Ojai (where we visit every year for a haunted hayride!). But ....
SpoilerShow
the char man isn't even in the fucking movie! Instead its just "creepy ghost / possessed kids"
It sets up a fine found-footage trope; but falls severely flat by the ending - with some serious editing needed in order to stop the ghoul from just looking comical. My partner was super scared by this though! But my goodness the ending is just awful + the found footage tropes are done really badly as well. This needed some help, but I still appreciate seeing a town I know quite well on screen.

Bone Tomahawk was pretty awesome but I need to rewatch it. Attack in Cell Block 99 is amazing, haven’t seen Dragged Across Concrete yet. Definitely one of the few directors I’m keen on following.

This metafictive horror comedy begins as a peudo-documentary and it's a bit uneven. Watching the killer setting up a murder location is cool as he rigs weapons and escapes routines. Talking about his "survivor girl" needing to use "a long, hard weapon" is amusing too. Where the fun really begins though is in the final half-hour as they intervene and become part of his horror movie in the process, having to reason through tropes and clichés to survive.

40. Yeogo goedam (1998) 5/10
A teacher at a highschool finds the place haunted by a former student who committed suicide. This was a difficult film to follow, I couldn't keep track of the characters and the subplots. The school setting and system is interesting, really claustrophobic and isolating and the gossipy whispering scenes at the beginning were fun. But then everything started getting too hard to keep track of and it started to get boring. The ghost and her story is not interesting, the creepy music was good but it was the only indication that creepy things were happening because there is no suspense otherwise.

The puppet effects may be lame here, but there is also a lot of realistic gore and the special effects for the tiny creatures are great - a birthing scene in particular. The film has a really rad mad scientist's laboratory too where the dinosaurs are artificially bred, complete with strobe lighting, rooms illuminated entirely in red and laser force fields that sever human limbs (see above). There's also contaminated eggs and killer chickens here too.

Shoddy Police WorkShow
Police officer steps a little too close to a dinosaur in order to accurately shoot it. The result? He becomes impaled by one of the dinosaur's foot claws when the wounded creature stretches out its leg in agony.

Along similar lines to the two Unfriended movies, this horror thriller occurs entirely through computer screens. This may not be as intense as the Unfriended flicks since the tale occurs over several days with the computer turning on and off, rather than in one single time block, but it is a decent take on the concept. A throwaway line, "it's the internet; you should have expected something like this", makes for a rather eerie key piece of dialogue.

42. Little Evil (2017)
Adam Scott plays the new stepdad to the literal Anti-christ. He begins to get suspicious around the time the kid tells his teacher to go to Hell after which she promptly douses her eyes with lye and jumps out the window of a three-story building, impaling herself on a wrought iron fence. By the time the kid is burying him alive, he starts to question whether this marriage is really going to work. Little Evil plays out like a comedic twist on The Omen and is consistently pretty amusing even if not laugh out loud hilarious much of the time. Adam Scott is very well-cast as the stepdad who just wants to bond with his new son despite the insanity going on around him. I had fun with this one.

Image
43. Nevesta a.k.a. The Bride (2017)
A newly engaged couple returns to the husband's family estate for a quick visit, but the bride-to-be grows increasingly unsettled by her fiance's family's behavior's and the odd customs they seem to hold dear. While the setup isn't necessarily a bad one, one the plot reveals itself, it's just incredibly contrived with scene after scene of "Mother" getting up in someone's facing and screaming. Rinse. Repeat. The soundtrack does a lot of the heavy-lifting here with loud scrapes, piercing strings and other discordant sounds coming in at every minor sinister occurrence. Even the whole reason they visit his family to begin with, knowing full well what will happen if he takes his girlfriend there, is just dumb. I say avoid this one.

Image
44. Now Eat (2000)
The horrorcore rapper Brotha Lynch playing a version of himself kills the wrong guy and gets cursed with a taste for human flesh by a voodoo witch. What follows is a bunch of crappy Shot-on-video scenes of Brotha Lynch and crew killing and eating people, just having a good ol' time at the BBQ grill. It's all pretty terrible and really not worth a watch even for fans of so-bad-it's-good cinema.

Image
45. Blood of the Vampire (1958)
The title on this one is a bit misleading, making it sound like a Hammer-style vampire flick when it fact it plays out more as a mad scientist movie. A mad doctor believed to be a vampire is staked and buried then later dug up by his trusted assistant and then is allowed to run a local asylum for some reason. He suffers from anemia and begins performing unorthodox blood-based experiments on the inmates. Enter wrongfully imprisoned John Pierre who is forced to aid him in his twisted experiments. I know this one has its fans but I personally found it to be pretty ponderous and far too dialogue heavy. Despite the exposition dumps, it still has its share of plot holes. Unless you are a big fan of Hammer (this is written by Jimmy Sangster who wrote several of Hammer's most classic films like Horror of Dracula) or a huge mad scientist movie fiend, it's probably a pass.

Image
46-54a. Higurashi no naku koro ni a.k.a. When They Cry Season 1 E1-26 (2006)
Mysterious happenings begin to plague the small village of Hinamizawa. Is it due to a secret curse, a triumvirate of powerful families controlling the fates of the villagers, a series of bizarre, unhinged happenstances or some weird fusion of all them? This season does not necessarily have all the answers, instead showing different story arcs that seemingly contradict one another. There's a certain assumption that at least a base understanding of the source material is required for this one (it's based on a visual novel and essentially different plot threads in the first season represent different diverging paths in the game). It makes for a rather disjointed and confusing experience but from everything I've heard, the second season exists to pull it all together. So I'll be soldiering on into season two. It's certainly interesting enough to have earned that.

54b.Corpse Party: Missing Footage (2011)
This is a short prequel OVA to Corpse Party: Tortured Souls showing some slice of life situations involving the students who would soon be plunged into a gory Hell. It's a nice little bumper if you've seen the sequel but certainly not necessary viewing.

Image
54c. Timing (2010)
This is a short promo video of a shelved project involving a group of individuals who can manipulate time. There are shots of random murders, zombies and other weirdness. It would've been interesting to see the finished product.

Also, Dewey is my justification for this Bingo entry.

#1 The Evil Dead (1981, Sam Raimi) (2nd+ viewing) 9/10 (from 6)
“What the hell was that? Are you trying to kill us?”
“Hey don’t blame me, it’s your steering wheel. The damn thing jerked right out of my hand."
“I don’t understand, I just had this thing in for a tune-up yesterday and they said they’d go over everything”
“Yeah, well you better get it back, since the damned thing don’t work. Only thing that does work is this lousy horn.”

The film never once pretends to side from the perspective of the human characters, we don’t see the world from their point of view. It’s a masterpiece in showing the humans as prey, who are -- since the very beginning -- stalked in their car from behind and around. Invisible forces are rushing in through the forests, eyes are exploiting every vulnerability, emergent bizarrities begin locking in, cornering, and invading their victims now trapped within an occult trap, a magical vortex, Their playground. And the film transports one to the numinous field.

“You mean no one’s seen this place yet?”

Thrill-O-Meter: 4 out of 10 car honks because it’s not "The Ultimate Experience In Grueling Terror" for nothing (although in a sense, out there, maybe Nothing is exactly how).


Image


#2 Street Trash (1987, James M. Muro) 7/10
The mishaps and bumpy adventures of Brooklyn’s homeless alcoholics, in an environment saturated with ominous sonics and dissipating lethal substances, where chaos is bound to erupt at any given moment, nothing is devoid of complete absurdity, and no human interaction is without banter or clashing interests. There are junkyard aesthetics, whooshing camera movements, seething paint discharges, gas masks, graffiti, lots of liquor and dirt, so this is a real joy to watch. Moreover the opening sequence is among the finest I’ve seen this year

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out of 10 screams for realistically creating a world of desperation and menace
Hilarit-E-Meter: 3 out of 10 laughs for -- nonetheless -- seeing sympathisable characters trying to keep up high spirits, participating in an atmosphere of glee, misconceptions, and farcicality


#3 Epidemic (1987, Lars von Trier) 6/10
SWAP: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4559

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams, although it was nice to see a psychotic break for a high-count screaming character within the film


#4 The Dead Don’t Die (2019, Jim Jarmusch) 6/10
Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams
Hilarit-E-Meter: 2 out of 10 laughs


#5 カメラを止めるな! / Don’t Stop the Camera! / One Cut of the Dead (2017, Shinichirou Ueda) 3/10
This is so metafictional and boring it shouldn’t even count it (it’s basically like watching two daft DVD bonus content special features with awkward music), but since I expected this to be a horror-comedy prior to watching and ended up sitting through it anyway, I’ll just count it along, to be generous

Thrill-O-Meter: Nope
Hilarit-E-Meter: 0 out of 10 laughs


Image

#6 The Happening (2008, M. Night Shyamalan) 7/10
Thrill-O-Meter: 4 out of 10 screams for an increasingly more intricate and intense (albeit somewhat oddly campy, urgent, cloying) depiction of societal disintegration/weirding and psychological breakdowns following a coiling wave of inexplicable mass suicide, and also because it’s a smart film presenting a provoking scenario, cultivating connections, influencing the weather


#7 Freaks (1932, Tod Browning) 6/10

#8 Evil Dead II (1987, Sam Raimi) (2nd viewing) 8/10 (from 6)

Hilarit-E-Meter: 0 out of 10 laughs


#12 Student Bodies (1981, Michael Ritchie & Mickey Rose) 7/10
An entertaining compact dissection of the protocol-like tropes and rules operating the rhythms of slashers and a parody of all the American cultural wackiness corresponding to and reflected by slashers. The villain in the story is none other than the viewers themselves, reproducing the audience’s desires and logic. Kill count, “boobies”, suspect, eggplant, money, education, talking in class, “who would logically have access to the murder weapons”, “the chair”, social exclusion, the game, important plot point, rebellion, prom, … all these somehow mass appeal American cultural stocks, social investments, micro-intensive aspects of daily lives and fantasies. I don’t know, it’s such a bizarre world for me. This film gets that across and -- like, say, ‘South Park’, ‘The Simpsons’, the Coen bros. and ‘Freaks and Geeks’ I guess -- it’s elucidative and compelling. The ultimate perceptive fuck you. And perhaps this just shows regular genre slashers aren’t for me. Anyway, the film also holds sway perfectly on its own, it has many authentically original humorous threads on top of everything

Thrill-O-Meter: “The fear of loss is a path to the Dark Side. Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them, do not. Miss them, do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed, that is. Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.”

Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

FTV:10:The Witch (1954) 7

Image

Initially appearing to be a entry in the “Mad Scientist makes a body count to find cure for a woman’s skin condition” sub-genre, the screenplay by co-writer/(with Alfredo Salazar) director Chano Urueta brings a refreshing twist,by actually having the Mad Scientist cure Nora (temporary.) Skirting round the horror elements, the writers conjure up a wish-fulfilment Cinderella fantasy, allowing Nora to be embraced by those who had spat at her real looks, which returns with a vengeance,as the Mad Scientist wants Nora to help enact revenge on those who he suspects killed his daughter,one of whom Nora has fallen in love for.

Getting her to the ball on time, director Urueta & cinematographer Victor Herrera shakes some Hollywood glamour glitter over Nora’s fantasy, glittering in loving close-ups on the bewitching beauty. Losing her dreams when the clock strikes 12, Urueta balances the dreamy with bubbling,off-beat chills, heated up in a hell/underworld trial featuring real “freaks”,and stylish super-imposed images displaying the inner beauty of Mora, under well-designed prosthetics. Putting a spell on everyone, Lilia del Valle gives a enchanting turn as Nora, which avoids any cackling, thanks to Valle expressing a passionate empathy Nora has for others,and hopes of being seen as more than a witch.

The effects work was pretty cool and the monster looked good, but scary demonic monsters rising from the "dead" really aren't my style of horror movie. But, as you might expect, there was an ominous pumpkin...
Pumpkins are scary!Show

Yes, TV counts - standard 40/60 rule.

On that specific episode, maybe - some X-Files episodes are certainly horror, some aren't - use your judgment there. :P

Thanks Max! Good to know, and of course I'll use my good judgment!

01. Char Man (2019) #BINGO - B2 (ghosts + shoddy police work)
02. X-Files: Die Hand Die Verletzt

Standard fare about devil worshiping teachers / parents - which hearkens back to all those "demonic" preschools and satanic panics of the 80s. It just doesn't really deliver when the satan character looks really goofy when they're doing their voodoo magick. There's at least a small throw-away line about Wiccans + real Satanists being peace lovers; but you'd miss it if you weren't paying close attention at the time. I'm sure this episode probably did more to demonize alternative religions than help them - especially by borrowing from so much Wiccan / Thelemic mythos (Aleister Crowley; calling the quadrants, athame, candles, etc). So, on principle: fuck this episode.
