Uh, oh... Winchester is a whopping 5% Rotten on RT.

Saving grace is that there aren't any reviews in from the horror sites that I trust like Dread Central or Bloody Disgusting.  If those guys say this movie blows, then it blows.

Winchester isn’t good by any means, but it’s not egregiously awful, either. It’s just kinda there. I’m surprised that the RT rating is that low.

Even if you have to asterisk that one it should go on. It is a little Goonies/sci-fi but it still has hounds of hell baying at the door while badass black kids take care of shit.

No "Attack the Block"?

I tried to keep mostly US produced horror movies or horror movies featuring African American actors in my list since it is African American History Month.

A Quiet Place's Super Bowl spot

I am sure there is an obvious answer but when was the last time a horror movie bought ad time during the Super Bowl?

IIRC, the trailer for Life debuted during last year's Super Bowl although I suppose you could count it as sci-fi rather than horror..

And apparently there ad campaign was so good I have no memory of said movie.  I'm thinking of the Arsenio Hall/Eddie Murphy "comedy" of the same title.

Hmmm.  Wikipedia entry doesn't sound familiar at all, though I assume i probably saw trailers for it at some point.  I'm nt much for sci-fi or horror, but Wiki makes it sound fairly interesting.

We will get it together as soon as people's lives are less crazy.  I've had a lot of weird personal shit to deal with lately.

My ballot has been close to ready for about four months now.  I just recently rewatched Lake Mungo.

As if I did not have enough to watch on television, catch up with on my poor DVR, horror movies to work into my Horror GOAT ballot or stuff to get done in Destiny 2.

Season 3 of Channel Zero starts Wednesday night on SYFY.

So, we're off to a roaring start in Channel Zero again.  Like other seasons, this story resembles the creepypasta (the "Staircases" portion of the Search & Rescue reddit) it's based on pretty much in name only, but it's still pretty good stuff.

The mysterious forest in the reddit has been replaced by a park smack dab in the middle of a declining city and we meet Alice (Olivia Luccardi) and her older sister, Zoe (Holland Roden). 

Alice is studying to be a family advocate / social worker and obviously the inspiration for her to take this particular career path is because of her fubar family life. Both Alice's mother and sister are suffering from varying degrees of schizophrenia and Alice has pretty much spent her life taking care of her sister and protecting them both from their mother. 

It's interesting to note that Channel Zero's chthonic horror stories always seem to serve as the backdrop and the real meat (no pun intended) of the plot centers on families dealing with dysfunction.  We've seen sibling rivalry gone horribly wrong (Candle Cove), a woman processing her grief as she deals with the loss of her father (No-End House) and now we have a young woman whos has sacrificed her childhood for the sake of survival and dedicated her life to protecting her sister and others like her.

I won't say much else for fear of spoilerlizing things, but rest assured that this season is shaping to be far more visceral than the previous two.  There's going to be plenty of blood.  I will say that I fucking marked hard when I saw Rutger Hauer's name in the credits, so I am dying to see what he does with this material and how this will all shake out.

Bravo, Syfy.  Keep on doin' what you're doin'.

The only thing that bothers me about story is the thing that bothers me about movies and television in general.  Someday we well get a more realistic and less stereotypical portrayal of people suffering with mental health issues.  Zoe's condition and how she and Alice deal with it will be pivotal to the story, but it seems as though the condition of insanity in this story will get the usual horror trope treatment that grants superpowers to the mentally ill such as enhanced strength or clairvoyance. 

So we're back to the Friday the 13th tradition of trusting the crazy doomsayer because the thing that would make him the most unreliable source of information provides him with particularly keen insight into exactly what is going on in this situation.

Even so, this was a strong debut to a series that keeps on delivering.

Nostalgia pick; I'm a child of the '80s (well, technically the '80s/early '90s) after all. It scared me and I wanted to see it so bad when I was like five and they had an ad for it coming up on TV with just the shot of them standing on the hill. My parents were like NO WAY. That also happened when I saw the ad for Hellraiser in the paper when it came out. My mom was jaw agape when I said I wanted to see THAT, mommy!

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it at the time, I just don't necessarily view it as a horror film.

I'd solidly call it horror/comedy, though I think the horror edge is more pronounced. You have a guy melting in a bathtub for fuck's sake.
