Bald Move Spooktacular 2019
just wanted to check in and see if y'all have narrowed down what movies will be part of this years BM Halloween Spooktacular? also, will @jim be partaking?
here's a list of this years Netflix's Lineup of Original Halloween Movies and Shows:
Also I hope Marianne from Netflix makes the cut. It drops today, Friday the 13th.
No reason to watch the original, as the remake is the exact same movie with English speaking actors instead of German speaking actors.
It's my second favorite horror movie! Unfortunately, the film received VERY mixed reviews. It holds a 52% critic rating on RT, and an audience score of 54%. Most of the hatred towards it is due to
My personal rating: 9.5/10.
The only thing I know for sure is Midsommer will be one of the headliners.
That twist is.. bold.
The antagonists in the movie are based off of the real story of a couple of young men who try to pull off the perfect murder because they think they are simply too smart to be caught. They were caught immediately. That story has been the basis for a number of thriller/horror movies including Murder by Numbers, also starring Michael Pitt. FULL CIRCLE
Except for Salo or 120 Days of Sodom. That comes up every year; that never even goes on the list.
Tigers are Not Afraid
I Trapped the Devil
In the Shadow of the Moon
The Girl with All the Gifts
Let Me in / Let the Right One in ?
Hounds of Love
It Comes at Night
Already watched/will talk about:
Some classic franchise, probably Halloween
A big reason for the low tomato score is that it is an exact shot for shot replica of the German film, but it's in English with Hollywood actors. That's always going to rub the some people the wrong way since the movie is entirely unnecessary. The tomato score for the original is much higher and more in line with what you'd expect the score to be for a good "horror" movie.
Said it may not be a good fit because it's a zombie (appropriate), musical [know you like them (I do too), but], Christmas movie.
maybe at the end of the Spooktacular?
Anyway, it came out last year and i didn't hear it talked about much anywhere (but, I saw it and enjoyed it).
haven't seen very many of those under consideration (don't usually watch horror movies since I frighten easily) - but, saw and enjoyed "Let The Right One In" & "It Comes at Night".
Good points about things like what a 2000 year old immortal monster lady would see in this dope though.
ARon was lamenting a bit about how the audience knows nothing about what Michael is or what he's doing in the '78 version. Well, in the 2007 version, Rob Zombie gives Michael all the motivations. The 2018 Halloween is a great modern slasher movie, but kind of misses out on what made the original so good.
I may be too late but shout out for the original ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ (1990). While not a conventional horror exactly I find this film very disturbing and very original. It also has a kind of ambiguous nature that would make for good conversation!
Just throwing it out there.
If you're still looking for creepy and haven't watched it for Spooktacular 2019 v3 yet, Midsommar should do the trick. Depending on your current state of mind it can seriously mess with your psyche. For me that one had the dread-meter going way up.
The baseball scene is truly something magical and is a perfect example of movie-making. Eat shit and live, Bill!
