John Cusack recommedation : Identity.ReplyDelete
I like The Raven for everything except the plot. Meaning don't make a movie about a period of time when a famous person went missing until he was found near death sitting on a park bench to then show him constantly in someone's company everyday except for a few hours before he finds his way to said park bench. Defeats the purpose. Risk being called a "Saw" rip-off and make him work during that missing time to free his fiance.
Speaking generally about Friday the 13th Movies, I can't decide which is worse....when they don't bother to explain how he manages to be alive again in the next film or when they try and come up with just the most asinine crap (ex: "Jason Goes to Hell").
The main impression I'm left with about Insidious 2 is that it's "Poltergeist" as a Disney World ride a la "It's A Small World".
The cold medicine could have something to do with that, though.
Hmmm...Identity...that movie betrayed my trust...ReplyDelete
I love your first line about The Raven. That should go on the poster.
Hope you feel better! Cold's suck.
Cool podcast as usual guys, just wanted to say a quick word about Mr Voorhees and that is this... Jason Voorhees is an asshole. He is always there to screw up a teens good sexy times, kids experimenting with totally harmless weed, and nerds trying to find a way to break out of their virginal pits of despair. The reason we love him is well he's our asshole. He goes to work 9 to 5, doing his horror film job, never discriminating against killing people (he will kill regardless of skin color or hell even if your in a wheelchair, he believes in equality)ReplyDelete
Also despite his generally poor choice of outfits and lack of sophisticated conversation he likes to teach kids about music appreciation (as we see when he takes Manhattan). On one other quick note Patrick while they definitely aren't all great some of the haunted houses based on movies are pretty sweet (personal best was house based on Carpenter's The Thing at Universal Studios a few years ago) and if you ever get down to Orlando or Hollywood you should take in a Horror Nights event. Don't worry I wont be able to smack you against a tree in a sleeping bag, my beloved Camp Blood I used to work at has been taken down to build more Harry Potter stuff, oh well I'll always have the machete memories.
Thanks, Tom. I don't dislike haunted houses because they are bad. I dislike haunted houses because I don't like people jumping out at me. In a movie, it's great. In real life not so much.Delete
I'm with you there, Patrick. I'm also in Orlando, and have yet to ever go to a Halloween Horror Nights because I don't care for the idea of people dressed in costumes poping out to try and scare me. it's either lame or heart attack-inducing.Delete
Jason Voorhees went from killing teens getting laid to killing people who are at least slightly aquainted with people who want to be special effects artists (3 & 4) to just anyone who happens to be in the woods, then to just anyone who happens by on a boat (btw, when did Jason finally learn to swim?) until finally he started after his younger niece like Michael Meyers did but not for the same reason (ick)....all to avenge his Mother being killed while she was avenging that he drowned and died as a kid.ReplyDelete
And still the most disturbing thing about all of this is that we have to figure it was Jason who took Mom's sweater off of her decapitated body for his alter.....
Just how "close" were they, anyway?
Getting really pumped now for Scary Movie Month, (or as I like to call it "The Countdown To November 1st: The Day of Regret"), but Ive been putting off watching all horror movies for the past couple months so Ill have some to play catch up with .ReplyDelete
Glad you finally saw The Loved Ones Patrick, and that you liked it. To put my love of it into context I saw it at the end of #SMM last year after I watched a bunch of slasher and 80s franchise movies (be careful Alpha, it seems like a good idea at the time, but ...) so my expectations were set accordingly and I was impressed by their use of many common horror tropes but that all the characters were defined by how and who they loved with all(?) the emotions that go along with it. I was impressed. Ill be revisiting it for the first time since then this #SMM, and I am hoping the spell wont be broken.
The silence following the "Wan Direction" comment was the sound of our defeat as we all tried to think of another horror director whose name sounded like "Backstreet Boys". We couldn't.
Yeah, I immediately regretted saying I was going to watch all of those franchises. I was caught up in the SMM excitement. We'll just have to wait and see :-) Thanks for the warning Brad L!Delete
Your comments about The Loved Ones make me like it better already. Now I need to see it again. I felt like it was a little underdeveloped from a character standpoint, but very well directed.Delete
October is just 13 days away.
Speaking of SMM if I may make a suggestion for this year's Horror franchise podcast may I suggest the Child's Play series, they are only six films (not as overwhelming as perhaps Friday the 13th) and I think quality wise are about even except for CP 3 (ugh)ReplyDelete
Good suggestion! Thanks. We've got plans already, but I'm guessing we'll get to Chucky before too long.Delete
I just picture JB, like me, feeling the need to get a walker as Adam talks about reading about Jonestown on Wikipedia and getting sad.ReplyDelete
@Joseph Finn - Sorry bud. I heard about the 'Kool-Aid' aspect of Jonestown but I never did any reading about it. Needless to say, yikes! Cults are TERRIFYING! This is why I have a deep distrust of people who are relentlessly positive.ReplyDelete
I just wanted to address your frustrations and confusion with Insidious 2's ending. Though you didn't see anything, the giveaway for that scene was the crackling sound effect. That was the signature sound for the red faced demon in the first movie. It was almost like a recreation of the scene where Elise first visits comatose Dalton in Insidious 1 and stares in horror at the dark ceiling while the audience sees nothing, but hears the eerie sound of the demon.ReplyDelete
I must have totally missed that sound. Thanks for clearing it up! And thanks for listening!Delete
Thanks Seth! That's perhaps a bit too subtle of the filmmakers because I'm an Insidious-head and I completely missed it. I feel like I need to see Insidious Chapter 2 again now. Donahue!Delete
I don't know why I wasn't that into the first Insidious when I watched it for the first time last night. Maybe it's my head cold. Maybe I would have seen it as a lot fresher if I saw it when it was first released in 2010. Maybe it's because I loved (most of) The Babadook and think that monster did the Nosferatu-fingers thing better. I may need to watch it again. I did enjoy when Patrick Wilson punched the dead-Tommy-Wiseau ghost in The Further.ReplyDelete
