i got "shudder" (it's free for 30 days with the code "SHUTIN"). i watched "hell house llc" yesterday. it was good! i'll watch another spooky film today.

i watched "don't knock twice". it was a 2 out of 5.

if i was in the horror film "don't knock twice", i would simply knock once only.

Show thread

it's called "don't leave home" (i know, i know)

i think for americans these films are about how scary the rest of the world is and how americans should never go there. for the rest of us these films are about the fantasy of getting to wicker-man some americans.

i'm watching "satan's slaves". it's really good so far, a legitimately spooky Indonesian film set in the 80s.

Show thread

"Satan's Slaves" was very good! kind of a better-than-average supernatural haunting James Wan -ish horror film (way less schlocky than the title suggests), but made in Indonesia, from a Muslim angle, with the occasional use of 80s Indonesian pop music as a hook – so i was really into it.

i'm watching "the wrath". it's a korean period drama that's basically just Courtly Intrigue but sometimes a ghost murders people. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Show thread

my favourite thing about horror movies? got to be watching americans having marriage problems for 30%-100% of the film

Show thread

i'm watching "mr jones." it's picked up a little, it's boring, but i'm ok with boring.

Show thread

it's self-declared "influenced" by david lynch, which means in this case a lot of incongruous, disjointed footage, just weird stuff happening. that's not what david lynch does in fact.

"one cut of the dead" is excellent. thanks for the recommendation @WoozleWuzzle !

Show thread

@WoozleWuzzle it's on Shudder, which is doing an extended free trial thing at the moment. you should check it out!

@alex yeah, I saw they were doing a long trial. Wasn't gonna bother because I've got a disc rental thing going but apparently it's not available on disc so maybe I'll sign up anyway! I also just found out that Mubi are doing 3 months for a quid, so that's worth a look too

@alex also, I'm looking on shudder to see what they have and if you've not seen it then I cannot recommend One Cut of the Dead strongly enough!

@alex honey let's just stick it out for a few days and see how we like the place. this could be a new start for us

@candle honey, i know you're sensitive about this, i know it's important to you, i know you asked me not to, but just hear me out ok: i bought a ouija board.
