Watched Haunt & It chapter 2

Wonder whats up with film makers nowadays?

Both films were well-directed, good production, fun characters & sufficient carnage scenes...but those are merely steering of the vehicle.... the engine...which is plot, storyline was really...meh

Kinda startin to lose hope on horror genre man. Those were the days...

Midsommar - Not as you think what it is.
This is not your traditional sense of horror movie and it's a long slow burn. It's a break-up drama for the first half and all hell breaks loose in the end. For me the best performance being carried out by Florence Pugh. A needy train wreck that irritates the hell out of you who drawn you into her transformation slowly as we get to see the BF is a piece of grade A dirtbag. Will Poulter provide most of the comedy relief by his unbelievable douchebag personality. Like Hereditary, the unifying theme again about grieving that led to a sinister path. Super strange and weird ass gory stuffs did happen. If you dug it, gonna be those movies you rewatch multiple times to catch subtle clues of where the story going. Prefer this over Hereditary on my personal preference.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019)

I LOVE THIS MOVIE TO BITS!!

Here is why

1) Guillermo del Toro wrote some of the screenplay (YEAH!!!)

2) Director, André Øvredal did a really good job.

3) In the first 5 minutes, most of the main characters were introduced in one shot. Masterful

4) With a budget of USD 25,000,000 (pittance, by Hollywood standard) they managed to do alot. Nothing about this movie, feels "cheap"

5) The cast is GREAT.

6) Main story is very involving!!

7) Sets are really convincing (Story takes place in the 60s... Set designer Patricia Larman did good).

What gave me the "huh"????

Gil Bellows is reduced to playing... Chief Turner??!

Why so little back story for the short stories?? Don't get me wrong, they are spooky (one FREAKED me out, SO BAD!!). I just think they would be more impact-ful, if there were a little more back story to them. Okay they have a dash of familiarity about them and then you go, "did THAT just happened"?

Also I am not sure if this is the intention

All in all, one of my favorite horror movie for 2019.

Are you planning to watch it, if you do, please leave a comment

Above is just, My Two Sen.

OK exorcism scenes but garbage story premise. Needlessly convoluted set-ups and one too many far fetch plot developments. Strictly for those who want to watch Korean pretty idol. I have no context to who's who of Korean pop idols except those character actor like Song Kang Ho.

Coming from Stephen King and his son, Joe Hill. Interesting premise with enough mystery hook to invest on the characters. The ending a little predictable but OK for what it is. A mysterious corn field that lure unsuspecting victims to trap in a time loop nightmare. Very "Lost-esque". Watchable to pass time and not a horror breakthrough.

Ya...think the son, Joe Hill did the heavy lifting as it doesn't do the mumbo jumbo last act that King like to do on his books, base on what I saw in the movie. The son can write, he's not bad and just need that one giant hit to be up there with his dad. Love his Locke & Key books.

Watched In The Tall Grass. As much as horror factors in there I feel like it is an innuendo to religions or any cults. Those who entered it, mostly are doomed to be in it forever. The "leader" promises a "way out" (heaven) but never fulfils it. Keeps his followers in check and uses fear to control them.

I recently watched Pusaka (2019) . I really find it not bad for Malaysian setting. Scary at times and good acting from the main cast!

The Grudge (2020)

Honestly, I only have a vague memory of the original Japanese horror movie.

Alot of school girls, a little boy covered in "chalk" powder and emo eye makeup

Also, an invalid old Japanese lady...

That is it...

And, honestly, I wasn't looking to watch a movie today.

I found out that this was on, and rushed to the cinema to watch this.

I remember the trailer intrigued me, so I was in a darken movie theater, and watched the movie

I was interrupted twice by my own phone (I could have sworn I put in on silence).

This movie is a little "multiple personality".

In one hour, thirty four minutes, it tried to tell 4 stories, and it can get confusing...

To make matters worst, some character are in two of the stories....

Additionally, is it me or are guy characters in present day movies, get... the shower scene... (as depicted in the poster...)

hmm.gif hmm.gif hmm.gif hmm.gif hmm.gif

I know what they tried to do.

There are not so much scary scenes, more of gore scenes.

And you know kinda when they appear...

Will it sell to horror fans...

Well, the branding would sell to most horror fan.

Did I enjoy this?

If the confusion of all the stories were better edited, maybe I would have been more entertained.

Or, maybe I am just a jaded old fart movie lover....

My Two Sen...
