Go seek out Alucarda, which Letterboxd tells me you haven't seen. Not average by any stretch.


Anybody have this subbed or dubbed they can throw in the dropbox? All the streaming versions online are edited down from 85 to 77mins and the only good version on pirate bay won't download


So this is confusing, maybe someone can help: I believe the movie was shot in English, so there's that. As for the runtime, I have not seen an 85 version available anywhere. Six files on PTP, all 77 min. IMDB says 78. I have a 77 min version where English is spoken and matches the images.

That's the only version that's available. Not sure where the idea of an 85 minute version came from. Download with confidence!

Saw this tonight. Lithgow was great. Movie was serviceable if not really dull for the first 2/3. Third act went off the rails and was over really quickly. Absolutely hated how they made Ellie an action movie villain with her hackneyed one liners. I mean, her initial line of questioning as to what she was and whether she was dead was the only uniquely interesting thing the movie had given us and then five minutes later she's pure evil and cribbing dialogue from Hans Gruber for some reason.Toggle Spoiler

Rating: 5 out of 10 skulls.

i really liked it. thought it was a blast and i was p scared throughout. i disagree that the thing you mention is the only uniquely interesting thing about the movie. i think the central question of pet sematary (the book, both movies) of "would you bring it back, even if it had changed?" is really interesting and is why it's such a good premise in general, and i think this version of the story investigated that pretty well. i thought it was a good horror movie.

I was saying uniquely interesting wrt to this version of the film, i.e. something that it did that wasn't present in the original. It was fine and thinking back I remembered that I really liked the scene where we see the shadow of the Wendigo moving out in the swamp landsToggle Spoiler. I thought everyone put in competent performances but the last act just wrapped up too quickly for me.

3/10 for me, thought it was boring and air brushed polished version of the '89.

yeah my bad on that, google and wikipedia both have it at 85 and then I saw an "Uncut" version on TPB and assumed that was the case. I had the same issue with Ken Russell's The Devils a few years back, the internet is a confusing place :/

ha, yr right of course but i kinda liked it. reminded me of the belko experiment which i also enjoyed. i think i have just super low standards when it comes to horror movies or something i dunno. people itt are always like this sucks, that sucked, this was shit, that was laaame, and i kinda enjoy nearly everything on some level

another thing i liked about pet sematary was its dim view of things that american films usually treat with sacrosanct sentimentality

Heading to a double feature of Tourist Trap and The Children (1980) at an old movie palace that was rented out tonight for a private showing (ie, donation only). Never seen Tourist Trap, so I'm pretty fucking stoked... seems like a great place to see a movie like this.

Tourist Trap is soooo good

thanks for the Alucarda shout-out Mesh, that one was on my watchlist forever and i needed that push to finally watch it. I quite enjoyed it, even if I didn't really love it. Lots of wheel-spinning in the front half. i also made the mistake of watching it while very sleepy but the climax sure woke me up!

and then last night I watched The Seventh Curse and I think it's safe to say I feel enlivened again and have my mojo back

i love alucarda and have posted itt before about it. it's one of the most satanic movies ever. i agree the first half is not full throttle.

moctezuma's first film House of Madness aka Dr. Tarr's Torture Dungeon (aka other things too i'm sure) is also worth a watch. he was a friend and collaborator of jodorowski's and i think the jodo influence can really be seen in that movie.

Agree with all about Alucarda, it has flaws of repetition and unfunny nonsense but I do think that it deals in the tonal extremes and unhinged execution that kind of put me in mind of some of the all-time greats. It's one of those where, even if you've seen hundreds of horror movies, you haven't quite seen that, at that level, especially at the climax. I'll give the first Moctezuma a try too, was hoping for tad bit more Jodorowsky in Alucarda.

So, Pet Sematary was fairly bland. I didn't outright dislike it but it did nothing for me.

how is it possible they made everything look like a draber version of the '89 film. the cemetery itself, the micmac burial ground, etc.

i was okay with all of the changes they made, particularly regarding ellie dying instead of gageToggle Spoiler but then they barely explored all of the interesting territory that change opens up

church and the cats who played him are very good boys, however, and i hope they got lots and lots of treats

Just saw pet samatary too. Also thought it was bland but I didn’t regret seeing it. The only really creepy part was hearing Ellie return (the door creaking open in the night) and the first couple of interactions with the dad in the bed, the bath etc. The little girl actress played that well and I loved the misaligned eyes makeup. Very messy movie overall and very dumb, I had a nice rapport with this random bro next to me, we had a good time laughing at the stupid parts together. I had fun I think

Tourist Trap is the first movie I ever remember fucking me up real good. They used to show it on one of the free over the air stations every other Saturday (it seemed) when I was like 10 years old and it felt like the scariest thing I'd ever seen (though I'm sure it was edited for TV).

it was a lot of fun... not sure how it got by me this long. I grew up with The Children, but being in a group and free of distraction was a great way to rewatch it. seeing Psycho and Psycho 2 next week.

Spring list so far:

1. Spookies
2. Body Parts
3. It’s Alive
4.Feeders
5. C.H.U.D.
6. April Fool’s Day
7. Get Out
8. The Beyond
9. Tales From The Crypt
10. Dr. Terror’s House Of Horrors
11. Alucarda

After watching Tales From The Crypt on a whim from seeing it on Shudder and following up with Dr. Terror, kinda went down a rabbit hole looking up Amicus/Tigon stuff. Really dig the look of Freddy Francis movies so far, and the gf is a huge mark for anything Lee/Cushing/Price related, so gearing up for a pretty heavy British horror dive this season

Woah, this looks sick.
Combarieu declares that the songs of birds are not "musical" either, because they are "very difficult to take down in notation." See his Music-Its Laws and Evolution, 155. Will some divine power please create a "Musical" bird to sing the Air for G String in exact Equal Temperament for M. Combarieu?

i have no idea what happens in the last 60 seconds of this movie. it left me totally confused. but i really liked it. it's not perfect by any means and it's a little heavy on the lead characters and not enough of the incubus, but it has john cassavetes, quite a few kills, and enormous demon cums. just that last 60 seconds were...odd

seriously cool poster

real talk: I don't even know if this qualifies as a horror film

sure, it's the sequel to a slasher flick, but it more or less immediately abandons that premise in favor of a sci-fi rom-com
