    I really like NOES 1-4 and most especially New Nightmare. Even 5 has its moments.

    The only Friday the 13th I've ever liked was Freddy Vs Jason. *ducks*

    Sleepaway Camp, I know what you did last summer, I still know what you did last summer.

    Aww I like the IKWYDLS films, they're good stupid slasher fun. I watch sleepaway camp once a year, usually around october. Think I'm gonna start on Shivers, Rabid and some other old Cronenberg movies next.

    I finally got the chance to see Phantasm 5 (2016). For the die hard fans of the series, I'll give some pointers about the movie. If you're expecting a movie like the first 2, you won't get it from this movie. The first one had a genuine/original feel/nostalgia to it and the second one had the big budget provided by Universal Pictures. If you have grown to like the 3rd and 4th movies, then you "might" enjoy the 5th. I was under the impression that this was the final movie in the series. The End. All questions answered and no stone left unturned. It is not as they left room for continuation. Angus Scrimm (The Tall Man) had died last year so I would think they aren't going to making any more Phantasm movies but that didn't stop Star Wars: Rogue One from having Princess Leia despite Carrie Fisher having passed away. Make no mistake about it, Phantasm 5 is a B-movie. There are some cool scenes in it but they won't make the movie any better. Lots of cool scenes with Reggie's 1971 Plymouth Cuda that will make muscle car fans drool and the scenery in some shots are flat out gorgeous. A least we can say the guys who provided the Cuda and location director did a good job on the movie.

    I like to pretend that none of the phantasm movies exist, just like the godawful NOES remake.

    You don't like Phantasm at all? I think it's a good film, but the sequels are less than stellar. I tried watching Ravager, but it was very... odd. I was lost almost from the get go, and I'm curious if it's because I haven't seen/didn't pay much attention to the sequels.

    The first one is alright. I hate all the others that I've seen.

    Phantasm is a horror classic. I can't believe anyone would think it's "godawful" unless they're rabidly anti-mainstream and only into the artier stuff. And even then, Phantasm is so weird it almost counts (ex Hellraiser). It's nothing like the blockheaded basic stuff like Friday the 13th or Scream.

    Guys with Netflix: Train to Busan. Best zombie movie I’ve seen in years.

    It may have been mentioned I just came straight to the last page.

    Also, if you like fantasy/action- Vin Diesel’s “The Last Withc Hunter” was a lot of fun. Made me want to look into D&D.

    Yeah, that was a total waste of time. I think. I forgot almost everything about it within about 48 hours.

    I saw Netflix added Raw and Teeth recently. That would make a great double feature.

    I watched Backcountry last night on someone's recommendation, it's an alright survival/animal attack movie about a couple in the woods stalked by a bear. Good and gory and the lead actress is good. It could probably have dropped the first 20-30 minutes with no loss to the film though.

    Finally got a few hours with no wife or 2 year old to watch alien covenant. Sad I know.

    As a big fan of the original first 2 and not a lover of Prometheus I went in with low expectations , and I came came out pleasantly surprised. Yeah there’s some thin story line in there . I’m not a huge fan about the whole way David ties in to the aliens, feels forced to me , but overall I enjoyed it.

    Did think the guy from almost famous was pretty terrible in it.

    Only the most asinine of PC police would connotate dark with race. Maybe if enough people call Abrams a racist for implying that he'll shut up about how the dark side is racist. I can't wait for the Sinister films to have their names changed because the word sinister has a negative connotation about left-handed people being evil.

    That JJ Abrams image is a completely falsified thing. Apparently you saw it posted on some kind of right-wing equivalent to the rage-o-sphere, posted as if it was real? Here's the link they photoshopped. I thought it was very suspect that it's an image instead of a link. I'm glad you questioned it, at least!

    FAKE NEWS!

    Train to Busan was kind of disappointing. I'm 0/2 on hyped Korean movies set on trains: first Snowpiercer and now that!

    You should check I Saw the Devil, Tae Guk Gi, War of the Arrows and Man from Nowhere. All of those are awesome.
