I can't believe this is the only good scene from the Poopiski Tapes, what an awful movie
I dunno. The part where the woman wakes up and realizes the killer cut off her husbands head and surgically inserted it into her womb was pretty funny.
Forgot about that. Gotta appreciate just how edgy the movie gets.
its funny that a movie like hereditary gets heled up as some masterwork of "slow burning horror" when the movie its completely ripping off, Rosemary's Baby, is far slower paced and more subtle. i guess its just because there was such a dearth of good horror movies throughout the 2000s that these a24 movies held with such high regard.
>the movie its completely ripping off, Rosemary's Baby
Just say you haven't seen both movies. It's okay to admit you're wrong on the internet. Plenty of A24 movies have been deservedly panned. Witch still hangs high above them all but there have been some decent and some lame. The only place I see them spoken of in such a polarized way is here. Even Witch a lot of people didn't like because they didn't get it. I don't even mean that in a snobbish way. The movie had a lot of subtext that was only available to people who knew Puritanical beliefs which isn't exactly important information.
I have seen both movies so I have no idea what your point is. The movie is very clearly a reworking of Rosemary's Baby. also in regards to the Witch
>The movie had a lot of subtext that was only available to people who knew Puritanical beliefs which isn't exactly important information.
lol. You are really full of yourself.
How? Rosemary's Baby is about the husband's ambition and the wife's passiveness and Hereditary is about the mother's grief and the family's disfunction? Just because there's a cult trying to birth the antichrist in both doesn't mean they are thematically similar at all.
Eggers whole shit is autistic historical accuracy
I actually assume this anon is correct, the movie probably works a lot better if you really know the time period
Jesus, I think the audience when I saw the witch in theaters was one of the angriest I've ever been in, they HATED it and it was packed
It does and I'm not trying to be snobbish about it. Being less accessible doesn't make it good. It makes it worse for the most part, agreed 100%. But it just happens to overlap specifically on a lot of very underserved genres of horror movies and I think that's why it resonated so strongly with some like me. I had a similar theater experience the last act punctuated with lots of "...what?"s and "what's going on here?"s.
>Even Witch a lot of people didn't like because they didn't get it. I don't even mean that in a snobbish way. The movie had a lot of subtext that was only available to people who knew Puritanical beliefs
I got it, but the movie wasn't engaging. If The Witch is the cream of the crop when it comes to A24 horror then I don't have high hopes for the rest.

Looks like croc kino will soon be on the menu again, lads.
Looks sweet. Love creature features in flooded areas.
What are some outside of Crawl and Bait?
Deep Blue Sea.
Black Water: Abyss
Is this Bait?
Nah bait's a shark movie
I went on the Jaws ride at Universal when I was like 7 years old and it scared the shit out of me this animatronic croc reminds me of it.
Love me some crocs/gators.
Fuck yes I love movies about giant animals killing people

Any recs? I watched this the other night. It was okay. I liked what they were going for but the way the the mom gets disfigured felt really lame and the alligator was criminally underutilized . It should have been some farming accident or something caused by Pearl's negligence. Really though I like dark, occult movies more than horror per se. Ninth Gate, Mouth of Madness, that kind of stuff.
Axe/Lisa, Lisa is basically 70s indie Pearl mixed with Last House on the Left.
Thanks that sounds decent. I like a good "group of criminals get their comeuppance" plot.
Cool that's all I was hoping for. Trailer made it seem actually kinda spooky visually at least.
>Thanks that sounds decent. I like a good "group of criminals get their comeuppance" plot.
I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. Deserves to be more well-known.
They should make a movie about taxes man cuz like... damn. That shit be scary.
Was Pope's Exorcist any good? I don't mind schlock.
It's fun. Worth a watch.
how slanderous was it
Pretty based. I want another movie in the vein of Hardcore Henry, only the protagonist goes around slaughtering cultists and demons like this.
What is this?
Why is it so hard to find movies that are actually scary? Lots of movies make me laugh, lots of movies make me cry, lots of movies make me think, but seldom do movies make me feel scared.
I've been recommended these countless times but they've never scared me:
>Texas Chain Saw Massacre
>28 Days Later
all the big fucking names, they all just disappoint me. Is it because I'm just too desensitized?
Don't lie gay. Jumpscares do in fact count, and I'd bet my life that you've jumped at some of the scares in those movies. Existential dread or lingering horror isn't real.
Jumpscares don't fucking count, and even if they did, most jumpscares don't get me. There have been movies that have totally scared me, Funny Games scared me but not during the movie, it was only after it was over and I was thinking about it did it start fuckin scaring me. The Outwaters scared me, Hereditary really fucking scared me.
>Hereditary really fucking scared me
You legit will get scared by even bottom of the barrel slashers if that's your standard.
I fucking hate slashers, it's the most boring shit imaginable
Slashers are infinitely more entertaining than some A24 slowburn shit.
There are good and bad of both. This is like saying scifi is better than action or vice versa.
Threads is pretty scary. I imagine even more so when it came out. There are scenes and images from it that still pop in my head from time to time. But like
said if you're a well adjusted grown up the best you can really hope for is to be startled. There are some things that might make you feel a little down just because it's so awful to imagine happening to a real person but I haven't been actually SCARED watching a movie since I was watching The Shining without knowing anything about it, home alone at night when I was 12.
>you're a well adjusted grown up the best you can really hope for is to be startled
Yeah you can be startled, disturbed, or a bit creeped out but you'll never be cowering like a scared child while watching a movie.
Try to find out what scares you, find some movies with that stuff, and then go in with no expectations. Hearing something is scary and then being forced to sit through boring crap ruins it. If that doesn't work, you might want to try a different form of media instead.
try inducing acute psychosis with sleep deprivation or amphetamines or something and then watch a spoopy movie
I assume you're edgy and desensitized but one of the "scariest" movies for me was shutter island
Obviously it's not a jump scare or horror scary, but it has an engaging story and mystery, and actually an interesting plot so the investment and suspense is much higher in a movie like this than just some clown murdering teenagers or whatever.
I'm not desensitized at all, trust me. I shed a tear for the animal stuff with GotG3. I saw Shutter Island and really liked it. Mental illness is a terrifying concept, being stuck in your own brain. Still wouldn't call it "scary". Very tense, very atmospheric. Great movie. Closest feeling to fear I get from watching stuff is just very matter of fact almost documentary style stuff that could be real. Scene in the original Texas Chainsaw with the hammer and the metal door. That's actually kinda scary the first time you see it come to think of it.
Then my guess would be you're just super rational and it's hard for you to get immersed in movies because as scary as they may be, you subconsciously know it's not real and some things in reality are just as or more scary
Yeah Shutter Island isn't exactly scary but personally, I enjoy thrillers with good plots much more than jump scarefests and straight horror, so maybe considering watching more thrillers such as that and Silence of the Lambs, even if it's not scary it may be more enjoyable
For the record I'm not
I do tend to watch a lot more stuff grounded in reality. I love Silence of the Lambs too. Another of my all time favorites. I really like spy thrillers especially when they delve into the dark side of the craft like Tinker Tailor and ironically the prelude to Die Another Day.
>Tinker Tailor and ironically the prelude to Die Another Day.
As lame as the movie is overall it was kind of shocking they had Bond not only captured but brutally tortured for over a year.
If you didn't decipher the plot within the first 5 minutes, you are an absolutely no-IQ
Babbys first psychological thriller
Italians are the best at naming horror.
Hereditary isn't even a good example of "slow burn". Something horrific happens every 15 minutes.
It's mostly the atmosphere that makes it feel slower than it is.
Because the whole movie is so fucking miserable lol (to its credit).
Take a heavy dose of shrooms and watch 2001: A Space Odyssey, post results
What are some movies where they explore creepy abandoned or not so abandoned places?
They filmed this at a local abandoned asylum. Wish I had gone up as a teen before they tore it down, even to take photos. Years later I found out my grandpa had a brother who was moved there when his mother could no longer handle his mental problems created by a childhood illness gone bad. My uncle was a doctor at a VA hospital years later and found out my grandpa who was in the navy helped move him there for better treatment. The family thought he had died in childhood and it wasn't talked about that he was living up at the asylum.
So seeing that movie now has some extra chills for me.
El ave del diablo
The Dark and the Wicked was pretty good. Probably one of the only movies about the devil I enjoyed and found creepy.
Ive tried to watch that movie three times and each time I stopped at the scene where she cuts her fingers off. I just cant get into it. It bores me.
20 years late to the party here but I watched Kairo a few days ago and the slow woman had to be the scariest fucking ghost i've ever seen in anything. It wasn't just a generally creepy scene she actually caused me a sense of primal revulsion like i've only felt a few times throughout 35 years being alive.
You can't honestly tell me that you wouldn't be shitting yourself in that situation. Less is more when it comes to this kind of shit, wish american films would tone down the cape shit and get back to the basics.
What I don't understand is why people praise Midsommar, it's fucking boring and we all know what's going to happen in the first 20 minutes with the cult in the middle of nowhere.
its a remake of The Wicker Man for people who claim to enjoy "slow burning atmospheric horror" but wouldnt have the patience to watch the original movie.
Just watched Last Shift. Pretty good.
The director supposedly made a remake of this this year. Haven't seen it, though
they both sucked
This, the first one was really bad, only watched it for the poster.
Dropped the second at about 20 minutes in, which had an even worse poster and trailer.
Gave it a try only because it was the same director, which should've been a red flag in hindsight...
>only watched it for the poster.
Weird because the movie is way better than the shitty poster would make you think.
I'll have to watch it sometime.
What's the verdict on this one?
Original french version is GOAT, american remake is shit.
I remember nothing about it except that I enjoyed it.
