I might go tomorrow night as I have it off. I kinda want to see Barbarian more though Pearl looks more fun. Jaws in 3D is playing there too so if I asked friends to go they'd just cut off my suggestion and want to go to that instead. 

EDIT: I asked anyway we'll see what they say in the group chat

Hey!  Pearl is at 88% Fresh at RT after a pretty rocky start to the review period.  My last day on graveyard is this Saturday, so I will most likely catch a showing sometime next week when I am on leave trying to reset my body clock back to normal.

I think that Smile starts next Friday and I will hopefully go see it with my kid since that is Friends and Family weekend at JMU and I will be heading up to Harrisonburg for a couple of days.

Trailer for the Let The Right One In series that Showtime is doing

Demián Bichir is playing the Dad

Yeah, there is more of a focus on the surrogate father's role rather than Eli, the vampire, but it looks like it will be a good adaptation.

Hulu Hellraiser looks tremendous!   I've got graveyard shift again from the 12th to 16th so it will be a part of my Night Shift Survival Package.

Brandon Cronenberg's latest sci-horror flick, Infinity Pool, has shocked the MPAA enough to earn an NC-17 rating for graphic violence and sexual content. Cronenberg, who is the son of body horror director David Cronenberg, is no stranger to pushing limits, having previously directed the violent sci-fi shockers Antiviral and Possessor. Infinity Pool stars Pearl star Mia Goth and Alexander Skarsgård and tells the story of a rich couple who vacation at a luxury resort that harbors dark secrets beyond its walls. In addition to Goth and Skarsgård, Infinity Pool stars Thomas Kretschmann, Amanda Brugel, Caroline Boulton, John Ralston, Jeff Ricketts, Jalil Lespert, and Roderick Hill.

If they do not go ahead and release an uncut or unrated version of Infinity Pool like they did with Possessor and Antiviral, I will be pissed.

The Midnight Club

Since it is full of teens you will have to accept the random angsty versions of early 00s pop songs

Is there a term for a marked loss in anticipation between reading a synopsis and seeing a trailer?

I read the synopsis of this yesterday, which did not include the word "teens."  People in a hospice meet to tell ghost stories, make a pact that the first to die will try to contact them, then weird shit starts happening?  And it's made by Mike Flanagan?  Nice.   Sounds like "Ghost Story."

Then I watched the trailer and it's angsty teen bullshit.  The very idea of a hospice just for teens is stupid and contrived.  So disappointing.

At first I thought The Midnight Club was another Are You Afraid of the Dark? series, but that was The Midnight Society. The premise of that sounded familiar, then I remember I read the book when I was a preteen. Chrisopher Pike's YA horror novels had more sex and gore than did RL Stine and was a bigger gateway to Stephen King style adult horror novels. I might give this a watch, though as a genxer I'm getting tired of 90s nostalgia already.

I’m watching the Rob Zombie Munsters movie with the three-year-old because he loves them and anything else that utilizes the classic Frankenstein design.

It’s not good, but it’s my kind of not good, which in this case is in the vein of the sub-Hocus Pocus children’s horror fantasy comedies that Disney/ABC Family often churned out in the 90s and early aughts. Richard Brake is having a blast riffing on Hammer stalwarts like Cushing and Price. It’s as thriftily made as the trailers suggest, but not nearly as incompetently constructed. It has the same flaw as Zombie’s other work, which is a kind weird rambling pacing caused by Zombie having too much affection for his actors to cut down long scenes of dialogue. 

Ultimately I wouldn’t suggest it, but if Zombie wasn’t attached and it premiered on Nickelodeon it wouldn’t have had such weird expectations and negative buzz.
