  • Random Horror Thoughts: The Lament Configuration

    So I like how Hellraiser II just sort of ignores the rules of the first.

    The whole "It is not hands that call us, it is desire!" is a really convenient way of keeping the mute girl out of the Cenobite's hands at the middle point of the film. That shit certainly didn't work of Kirsty in the original film. She had no more clue what she was doing with the box than the mute girl did, but they still wanted to drag her ass to hell anyway. #CenobiteHypocrisy

    I don't know if I'm in the minority, but I've always thought Nightbreed was Clive Barker's best film. Although the director's cut is better (follows the beats of the book more closely, and gotta love Anne Bobby singing in the night club), I still like the theatrical cut quite a bit. There's something about Midian that I get the urge to revisit once a year or so.
    Has anyone read Cabal? Quite a good read, and one of Barker's more accessible books.

      Watching The Resurrected (1991). Got the Scream Factory Blu Ray for Christmas. I’ve always loved this movie and so happy to see a good copy of it, finally.
      One of the best representations of Lovecraft on film.

        El Rey Network had like a 3 day marathon of the Nightmare on Elm Street series that I was watching a lot and it inspired me to watch the Never Sleep Again documentary for the first time, but God damn, this thing is long. Have to split it up into two nights. My favorite tidbit of information so far is how much of a shame it is that Clu Gulager didn't get a blowjob on the set of Nightmare on Elm Street 2.

          I spent like 5 years trying to track down a decently priced copy of this DVD because I couldn't believe I'd never seen it. Started looking through my backlog of movies that I'd watched, and it turns out that I actually DID watch it on Netflix around 2010 or so, way back when they had dope shit like this streaming. I have zero recollection of having seen this movie, so I'm interested in watching that Blu-ray...at some point.

            Bates Motel is one of the best things I have seen on TV.

                So I figured someone on here might be currently using the service or has used it in the past, but I was curious if the Shudder horror streaming service was good or not? Its only $4 a month which seems like a pretty good deal and they have a decent amount of stuff, so I'm a little weary that the streaming isn't that great.

                  I thought I paid about $8 for shudder (part of Amazon Prime video) back in October. I used it for a horror movie challenge last year, because it had quite a few decent horror flicks. It's pretty damn good, however, the content didn't seem to change all that much over a month. If you don't get bored of the movies, it's worth it. Hopefully you get enough variety/updates. For $4 a month? Worth it.

                    Thanks. Actually, its $5 a month (still a good deal) but if you commit for a year, its about $48 for the whole year or $4 a month.

                      I'm looking at Shudder's library and I see some cool flicks. They've got access to Severin Films releases (Cathy's Curse, Wild Beasts, Burial Ground), Raro Video (Violent Cop, Play Motel), Drafthouse (Ms .45 which is one of my fave films, Wake in Fright), Redemption (Vampyros Lesbos, Two Orphan Vampires if you want to try out Jess Franco or Jean Rollin European movies) among many more from these labels as well as more recent titles. A surprising collection of shows like Tales from the Darkside along with Trailers from Hell.

                      At the cost of $4 or $5, I'd say it's worth it if you haven't seen many of these because if they're streaming releases from these home video labels, then the transfers should represent that. At least, that's my theory.

                        Not really a horror film, but has anyone else seen The Shape of Water? Truly something else...one of the best films of 2017. Extremely well done and engrossing.
