Netflix knows a thing or two about horror movies. The American media-services provider and production company always has a long list of horror movies available. It has made some good suggestions for films to watch and enjoy around Halloween. Therefore, if you love spooky and scary movies, Netflix has you covered.
You know, this movie wasn't half bad. I'm not sure what it had to do with White Noise, as there was almost zero connection to the original movie. The first movie dealt exclusively with EVP, and this movie basically didn't deal with it at all. I mean, it's kinda in the background, but I feel like the director just didn't understand what white noise EVP phenomenon is.
Brief synopsis: Natalie goes to meet up with her best friend from high school, Brooke, having been away at college. Another old high school colleague, Taylor, is living with Brooke. The three young women, plus their partners and would-be partners, go to Hell Fest, a horror-themed amusement park.
As proven, Chucky is an icon, and a definitive character we, as fans, never get tired of seeing. His growth in film history has stretched past the media, and has entered online stores as actual life-sized dolls (Trick or Treat Studios), as well as figurines. In that case, Chucky is more than a character. He’s a souvenir, an ostentatious display reflecting our passion for not only the killer doll, but for the reign of terror he inflicts and holds with him on screen. Chucky, as an increasingly classical character in pop culture, has set such a mysterious and rare path that could seemingly lead the franchise on a broader outlook on what’s new to come out of this franchise, as well as the characters. There’s so much potential for this franchise to be continued... But something so unexpected and unwanted has happened, that either shocked us to the core, or made us hang our heads in disappointment—or both. That unfortunate occurrence was the announcement of this 2019 reboot, that is said to be a homage to the original 1988 cult classic, Child’s Play. “Homage?” I think not. While this reboot has went viral in the universal news of horror, it appears that it’s looked at as neither the revival of Chucky, nor the failure of Chucky. Well in my book, it’s definitely not a revival, and there are many reasons as to why that is. And, there are even more reasons why this reboot is completely pointless and serves no purpose for the fate of Chucky.
Andy Muschietti returns to finish directing the IT saga two years after the first movie. Armed with a star-studded cast including James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Jessica Chastain to name a few, and of course the return of Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise. The film seemed destined to be one of the movies of the year. After seeing the movie for the first time six days ago, I think that it is a sensational sequel with some minor problems that somewhat slow down the film.
Jesus fucking Christ Rob... you sure do know how to pull every god damn trope out of the box that annoys the fuck out of me. This one opens with a talking head, and continues with an unnecessarily long exposition on how annoying all the fucking characters are. It was actually pretty quick, no more than 10 minutes, but it felt like a goddamn hour. Fucking seriously! I hate it when a movie challenges me to break my 30 minute rule. And just so you know how bad it has to be for me to break one of my own rules, one of the few movies where I did was The Bay.
In fact, in the horror genre, remakes have been admirable, at the very least. Say what you want about the Child's Play remake—Mark Hamill did just fine with his voice acting chops. Still we have issues, like the forgettable remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show bringing the genre down a notch, but in all fairness, that's one misstep among a legion of interesting takes on phenomenal ideas.
I just wanna look and fiddle a little bit.
Fiddle and touch.
If you see a red balloon floating aimlessly around, chances are that Pennywise, the dancing clown, is creeping up behind you.
Having watched the original IT, the second chapter really surprised me. The first chapter I felt was very repetitive, as scenes of each character were always stretched. But the second chapter was three hours long, and through its course, I was consistently attentive because the story was great. Here I will explain each element in the second chapter that made it such a great movie in relation to the first.
I recently read a review that stated The Exorcist III (X-3) is finally getting the appreciation it deserves. That's an understatement. X-3 was thrown into the category cult classic as the only people who saw it were hardcore fans of the original (X-1). These are the people who suffered through the absolute fucking travesty that was the second exorcist (X-2). They stuck by and believed in the franchise and forced friends to watch X-3 over the years. My introduction was the same. "HAVE YOU SEEN X-3?!?" "THERE'S A 3RD ONE?!?" We were actually screaming, no lie.
How am I just realizing this is the second movie this year to star both James McCoy and Jessica Chastain? Maybe it’s because the first movie was Dark Phoenix, and no one cared about that movie.
