Patrick, you're definitely welcome and thanks! I'm super happy that you dug "The House of Him" and I really enjoyed hearing your thoughts on it. The stuff you point out is exactly why I'm a fan of that film. For $2000.00 bucks they made a really impressive film, with impressive performances. This movie, if anything, shows that you don't need to do a "Found Footage" film just to save money.You both had great lists! The Taking of Deborah Logan is actually pretty damn good (especially having ZERO expectations). I completely forgot about that movie when making my lists. I'm buying "Ghoul School" asap for Bromley memorabilia!Starry Eyes is probably the best choice for best horror film of 2014. I have mentioned before that my favorite is Pieces Of Talent followed by (2) I am a Ghost and (3) Starry Eyes (4) Housebound (5) Asmodexia (6) Proxy (7) The Demon's Rook (8) The Town That Dreaded Sundown (remake, I don't know why, but I loved the style over substance of this one) (9) Almost Human and (10) Suburban Gothic. Much respect to Coherence although I think that's more Sci-Fi, Wolf Creek 2 which was a lot of fun much like Dead Sno 2 and Honeymoon, which I would have loved if it weren't for the acting which was annoying me for some reason.
Thanks again for the suggestion. I dug the movie.Pieces of Talent was one that I really tried to see prior to making my list but never managed; I'll still be seeking it out. And I forgot The Demon's Rook -- that's one that I did squeeze in. It would not have been on my list, but I did like the DIY spirit. If that movie had come out in 1988 there would be a huge cult of fans around it and Scream Factory would be putting it out on Blu-ray.I think the TTDS remake was on my list before I saw The House of Him, so you only have YOURSELF to blame for its exclusion!
Yeah, it was a tough one to exclude House of Him from my list so thanks for pickin' up the slack! I'm curious to hear your thoughts on Pieces of Talent. When I started watching it I got like 30 minutes in and said, forget this and bailed on it. Thought about it the next day and decided I needed to finish it. I then bought the DVD watched it again and then showed it at "chaybee-fest"as the closing film. So, I literally went from F this movie! to F! This Movie! It is the horror film that stuck with me (even now) since I watched it last year, hence it being my #1. I think the two leads, David Long and Kristi Ray, are fantastic and balance each other out beautifully. Completely agree with your thoughts on Demons Rook and that's why I loved it! Much like Almost Human.
Great podcast! So many movies to add to the queue...I disagree with Heather on one thing though, I definitely do NOT want to hear what Busta Rhymes has to say about Halloween: Resurrection.
Great conversation! If nothing else, I definitely got out of it that I need to seek out Starry Eyes as soon as possible. In addition, I was recently reading a description online somewhere of Late Phases, and that movie sounds interesting to me, too. Thanks for the recommendations!
Great as always bla bla bla, I say it everytime I know, first shocker for me of the podcast was I just watched Stagefright last night, catching up with recomendations and missed films. And then you mentioned Meatloaf, Errr. MEATLOAF!!? And then it clicked. I feel stupid but I really dident spot him though now it is so obvious, its the Mustache. Thats my lame excuse, loved it by the way. Great fun Also Starry eyes is another that sneaked by me Heather was a great guest as always but please don't complain about the running time. Im quite happy for the podcasts to go on as long as they need. If you've got stuff on your mind still keep going.... Cheers Chaybee for your recomendation too. I will be watching this as with me for now you have a 100% hit rate ;)
Just a note of interest KillerPov who we all love let there casts run longer than 4 hrs ;)
Right on, Dennis! I'm sure I'll recommend a real stinker at some point :)
Patrick you should watch Alex de la Iglesia's "El Día de la Bestia". Think about it as a spanish The Omen with Witching and Bitching's humour, and with an other great Santiago Segura performance. You'll love it! After that watch "La Comunidad" also great.
Nice! Thanks for the recommendations. I can't wait to check them out.
This is the only movie podcast I listen to beside How Did This Get Made? and The Flophouse. So happy to have a long list of horror movies to add to the other films recommend the other week. My wife and I just finished Starry Eyes and we're currently trying to recover from that wild ride.
Cool! Thank you!
Hey Patrick. I think me and you have a similar sense of humour for the funny type of horror. I really like "A Little Bit Zombie" and ive never heard you mention it on here. Its a lot of fun and I think you would enjoy it. Also Adam too. Has anyone seen this or is it just me?
The movie is on youtube if anyone want to give it a roll. I think it gets the sense of humour of a Zombie film spot on. Get onnit Chaybee.... ;)
Oh hell yeah. I'll watch anything with Stephen McHattie! Thanks for recommendation Dennis. Might not get to it this weekend but it's on my watchlist,
Hey Dennis - was at a thrift store yesterday and found a copy of A Little Bit Zombie. I don't usually like Horror Comedy but watched it tonight and thought it was really fun! Thanks for the recommendation!
Im really glad you liked it. It is a lot of fun. Stephen Mc Hattie is brilliant and I like the nagging wife too. I have watched it 3 or 4 times and i always enjoy it. It need more coverage. Its totally rewatchable. Brainssssss. ...
McHattie is the man! Everyone was actually really good. It is pretty much non stop gags so all of the good ones make up for the few that fall flat. The end is a bit unresolved and abrupt but overall had a great time watching! Thanks again.
Yeah they did not perfectly stick the landing but like you said it is so much fun for the rest of the movie you dont really care
He is really funny in it. ;)
Late to this party and only partially through the episode but just wanted to chime in and say:I'm so with Patrick on The Innkeepers vs. The Sacrament - I LOVE the former and though I think I like the latter a BIT more than Patrick, I'm pretty lukewarm towards it.And I'm totally with Heather on The Conjuring! Maybe it was another unfortunate victim of heightened expectations but it was totally "meh" to me.In other words, you're both right!
I'm sorry, but I had to stop listening after Heather said she liked Rec 3.
Ok, I went back. I love the podcast too much
I'm with Heather, too. Thought I was pretty much alone in my boredom with The Conjuring. And I thought I was alone in liking Insidious 2 more than The Conjuring. Craftsmanship aside, I honestly don't get all the love for it.
For a movie like that, I think craftsmanship goes a long way. That's not to invalidate what you said, just to agree that the craftsmanship was my favorite thing about the movie.
The indie horror scene has higher calibre acting because it's a crowd of folks who don't just do horror. They take turns showing up in each other's movies. Sometimes they are romances, often comedy, sometimes horror. I dig it. It's refreshing.Where was that movie A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night? I thought that was a great and ambitious mash up of genre and maybe the best vamp flick since LTROI. I guess you talked about it three weeks earlier.
