2019 HORROR MOVIE THREAD

Recommended Posts

American Horror Story is finally fun again after two rather lackluster seasons.

The 80's slasher movie nostalgia theme for this season is fucking TREMENDOUS~!

The plot is total garbage but you weren't expecting Tolstoy, were you?

Yep.  That's the main reason I refused to let my Shudder subscription lapse.

"VHS box covers that fucked you up as a kid, but ended up disappointing you years later" could be it's own thread, but I was obsessed with this one when I was way too young to rent horror (my mom was cool with R-rated action and such, but she's never been a horror fan, so it was not really allowed until I was well into my teens)

Funny since isn't that one basically a black comedy more than a slasher?

If you didn't see 3 From Hell this week, it's doing one more Fathom screening on the 14th, and hitting various home media formats the following day.

Considering Zombie's relationship with them, is it gonna go straight to Shudder?

I don't believe it's going straight to Shudder because they haven't mentioned it, but it really depends more on Lions Gate than Rob Zombie. He raised the money for 31 himself so he could do what he wanted with it.

I will say that it's nearly made it's 3 million budget back just off these Fathom event screenings, so there might be a little bidding war as to who gets it, and based on the current market, Shudder might not be able to compete.

If these Fathom screenings are helping to give the marketplace back to the viewer, then sweet.

Watching now. Nothing was going to keep me from slashers and Emma Roberts.

I've never watched AHS before this season, but "80's slasher" is basically my catnip.

Mr. Jingles is a terrible name.

No idea where it will go from here, but apparently the rights to A Nightmare on Elm Street have reverted to Wes Craven's estate.

It was more a big middle finger to fans of slasher movies, and it’s tropes. Which I gotta hand it to them, the twist is in the title of the movie.

And, of course, the vhs box cover and movie trailer that most terrified me as a kid.

It is ironic that there was a bit of discussion about the documentary, Jodorowsky’s Dune, in the Movie forum since that movie wais produced by Travis Stevens, the same man who directs Punk's horror flick.

Stevens also produced the cult classic, Big Ass Spider!

Blood Machines (2019)

I believe this is a Shudder exclusive.  Good thing I re-upped.

This the proverbial Alien or Await Further Instructions style horror movie masquerading as sci-fi / speculative fiction.

Brightburn.

The midcredits scene was better than the whole movie. Wish that was the movie.

NPR television critic says that the upcoming series Evil on CBS is awesome and is like the X-Files only with demons and crazy people.

I'm in.  DVR is set to record the entire season.

The premier episode is this Thursday.
