This is how I feel about it too. I've never understood the praise.

It did give us this gif though and for that I appreciate it.

I used to, shamefully, think that In the Mouth of Madness was for the birds.
Watched it again this year and man that movie is great. So ambitious and unique, there are few movies with such imaginative things happening in different locations. The Nightmare on Elm Street series comes to mind.

Oct. 6
Murder in Law (1989)
A young man's mother comes from Louisiana to live with her son in San Francisco. What her son doesn't know is that Mom was confined to a mental hospital in Louisiana, and she murdered an orderly to escape.

Image
Image
Image

Really amusing for the first 15 minutes where we get to see Joe Estevez as poppa to a perfect 90's sitcom family, with a horny son who looks just like Drake Bell. As soon as murder mom arrives you think there's gonna be some fun deception plot or scenes of her slowly unraveling, but no, Joe's mom is just highly malicious and unstable from the get-go. So there's no tension for the rest of the movie and not even much for murder mom to do, she barely even gets any lines which is a shame because the ones she has are hilarious. A couple good moments and Estevez is a class act as always, but this is a big wasted opportunity. Available on Amazon Prime for the curious. D+

Yeah, I really dig that movie. Texas Chainsaw meets a high school prom is a pretty enjoyable mix.

3 From Hell wasn't bad, but definitely misses the charm of Rejects or the camp of House. scene with Sid was sad. so glad we got to finish on a Terry Reid song again.

I might just stop my marathon at any point this month but I'm watching while I have it in me. First batch:

1. Luz, 2018 2.5/5
Image
Image
This honestly did nothing for me. I love Euro horror, love slow and moody and atmospheric, but this never takes flight for me. Too stagey, maybe? I don't like live theater and this felt like that, almost. I definitely want some of those weird Hypercolour drinks, though. I zoned out quite a bit and played on my phone for this one. Not an auspicious start to the month.

2. A Bucket of Blood, 1959 4/5
Image
Image
ALL HAIL KING DICK MILLER. This is more like it. I realized that although I've seen a metric ton of Roger Corman's production credits I've only seen a few of his directorial efforts. This is a funnier and more entertaining riff on the art world and the insufferable gatekeepers of it than Velvet Buzzsaw was. Loser Dick works at a beatnik haven coffee shop, accidentally kills his landlady's cat and turns it into a sculpture, rave reviews and long sought-after friendships and attention result, so he moves onto bigger prey. Fleet and funny. Pompous Orson Welles-ish poet is the best.

3. The Bat, 1959 1.5/2
Image
Image
Terribly flat murder mystery starring an underused Vincent Price and an entertaining Agnes Moorehead as a take-no-shit and capable writer who finds herself mixed up in bank theft conspiracies and a local murderous perv who likes to claw his victims. Outside of a strong central female character with agency (and her not-so-subtly coded homosexual relationship with her live-in maid), there's not much to recommend here.

4. Baron Blood, 1972 2/5
Image
Image
Image
How was this Mario Bava's follow-up to Bay of Blood? The most rote and by-the-numbers gothic horror imaginable. Score's lackluster, I didn't give a shit about any of the characters, slow moving...at least the Baron looks kind of cool and there's some nice sets and shots throughout. I don't have much to say about this. Disappointing.

5. Halloween III: Season of the Witch, 1982 4.5/5
Image
Image
First rewatch of the month. Saw an IMAX screening of this with a meet-and-greet with Tom Atkins, who was delightful and friendly and told lots of fun stories. It's a fucking classic, you know it, go watch it again for the millionth time. Here's a dweeby pic of me and Tom, and then my signed poster:
Image
Image

6. The Perfection, 2018 2/5
Image
Image
Surely we can get a better #MeToo horror movie than this, right? Even my crush on Allison Williams can't save this. Feels like a gonza DePalma joint at moments - especially Raising Cain - but is never as confidently wacky or supremely weird enough. Absurd twist piled on top of absurd twist that would have been fun if they only would have embraced the ridiculousness a bit more.

7. X: The Man With the X-Ray Eyes, 1963 4/5
Image
Image
And Roger Corman delivers another winner. Ray Milland is a well-intentioned doctor who experiments upon himself in order to be...a very good doctor. I like that our hero is sympathetic in this one and has only the best of intentions but things just keep getting fucked up for him. Impressive proto-psychedelia effects, strong story, nice set-ups and an unexpected swerve into straight-up cosmic horror in the end. Highly recommended.

What are the good horror flicks of 2019? i haven't seen much but everything has been bogus.

Midsommar - good
3 From Hell - ok
Us - ok
Velvet Buzzsaw - ok
Child's Play - dumb
It Chapter 2 - terrible

not even particularly interested in checking out Pet Sematary yet. any recommendations for something campy or stylish? probably gonna dig through the VOD releases until Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-o-Rama 2 comes out.
