There Are Monsters (2013)

🔥 10th Anniversary

I was super-skeptical at the beginning of this movie -- it's very obviously low-budget, and I'm not big on the found-footage subgenre generally. Turned out to be totally worth watching. The filmmaker(s) understood horror and it showed.

Post Mortem (2020)

This movie has probably the most mixed reviews ever, but I really enjoyed it. The English overdub on the DVD was awful so I turned it off in lieu of subtitles and I'm glad I did, much better.

There are creepy corpses doing very undead things, and people being snatched into the air and tossed about like ragdolls. Maybe the acting isn't great, but I can deal with that just fine for some good haunts.

One definitely noticeable issue, tho, is the "questionable intentions" of the man with this 10yo girl who ends up being his sidekick -- it's low-key cringey FOR SURE, but doesn't seem malicious. They're connected by death and resurrection, and end up being a paranormal team.

I think maybe a lot of people who don't get what's overall happening in this film just have never heard of a psychopomp. That would explain a lot of confusion/complaints I've seen like "this-and-that is ridiculous and doesn't make any sense at all", well it does make sense if you know about psychopomps.

Happy Death Day 2U (2019)

Rewatched Happy Death Day this weekend, so figured what-the-hell, might as well check out the sequel. Lots of exposition about why the loop(s) happen/ed. These movies are just barely in the horror category, but this 2nd one even moreso removed, with all the sci-fi going on.

Dead Alive (1992) aka Braindead

Last time I watched this was probably over a decade ago. Remains one of the absolute grossest movies I've ever seen.

The Hidden (1987)

Quite the wild ride of a sci-fi thriller! Kyle MacLachlan killin'👏 the role, as usual, and a few more familiar faces popping up throughout are always fun to spot. Weirdly good indie 80's soundtrack, too, check it out.

Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)

  One of those rare instances where the prequel was better than the original.
