What did you think of Autopsy of Jane Doe? I got a genuine shiver down my spine during the scene when he hears the bells outside the door. ?

Night of the Demon (AKA Curse of the Demon) (1957)

"American professor John Holden arrives in London for a parapsychology conference, only to find himself investigating the mysterious actions of Devil-worshiper Julian Karswell."

Well worth watching if you've never seen it, or watching again even if you have.



Hex (2017)

"During the English Civil War, two opposing soldiers find themselves trapped in a forest controlled by a Witch."

A better description of this movie might be...

"During the English Civil War, two opposing soldiers find themselves trapped in a forest controlled by a Witch. Massive boredom ensues."

This movie stinks, and is pretty boring.

I loved the whole mood of the movie. Eerie the entire time. My youngest son has put it on the top of his list as a favorite.
I agree! They did a bang-up job of gradually ratcheting things up, rather than relying on cheap jump-scares. The hellish realizations they come to as the autopsy proceeds. Whew. Like you said, the whole atmosphere. Tight, taut movie.

Poltergeist the original 1982 version - local TV station (SBS) has been broadcasting several horror movies lately
I saw Poltergeist in the theater as a high school senior back in the day. Loved it! One of the 80's best, and there were a ton of fun horror flicks back then. Did I mention I'm old? ?

Brotherhood of the Wolf - 2001


Basically this is a movie about the beast of Gevaudan. In French with subtitles.

Not a bad movie. The plot doesn't quite live up to the cinematography, and at times I felt like I was watching Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon mashed together with Dangerous Liaisons, but overall it's well worth watching. When you watch a bad movie it might only be 1 1/2 hours long but you feel every minute of that time. This movie is almost 2 1/2 hours long and it really didn't seem like it because the plot kept moving along. The directors cut is a little over 2 1/2 hours long. I didn't watch that version but I guess the only difference was that they added some backstory for the hero of the movie, the Chevalier de Fronsac, and his native american sidekick Mani, which I doubt really would have added anything more to the story since you find out, albeit briefly, why they have a close bond.

The only thing I would add is that if you have the tendency to use pirate movie sites, not that I am admitting to being one of those people ?, but if you are I would watch the quality of the subtitles. I can understand a little french and you expect in translation a word or two to be switched or dropped. For example a character kept referring to the main character by his title Chevalier, but the closed captions referred to him as Fronsac, but the first version I came across not only was it badly translated things, it dropped entire sentences.

Currently watching Hammer's "The Curse of Frankenstein" with Lee & Cushing.

Had a discussion recently about who was hotter, Cushing or Lee. The decision was based solely on looks, not actual acting abilities.

I LOVE Lee, especially his Dracula, but my vote was actually for Cushing as the hottest between the 2.

Visually he seems frail like a kitten. Yet at the same time he can kick ass too. You know he's gonna throw down & save you from the monster even though it looks like a good breeze would knock him over, he's got some unexpected fight in him. More often than not he was the hero. IHe's got pretty blue eyes, that accent & those razor sharp cheekbones most women would cut a b*tch for!

I've always found him attractive.

Now Lee, Lee was meant to play monsters. Not that he doesn't have a voice to die for, & I do think he's handsome, it's just that for me, well, Cushing would be my Hammer bae!! :LOL:

Then my husband said, "What about Leslie Howard, is Cushing like him?" (FTR I frickin' HATE Leslie Howard). I just glared & said "umno, he's no Leslie Howardthankgawd....although I shouldn't dis Howard, he was shot down by the Luftwaffe in WWII & may have been a spy for the Allies so I can't be too harsh on the dude, even if he does have such a punchable face."

Seriously, why would Scarlett O'Hara EVER pick that little wimp over Rhett?

1964's Witchcraft was terrific Halloween Week fare. It's a black and white thriller with gobs of eerie atmosphere and sorcery. Recommended. ?

Caught It: Chapter Two (2019) last night and dug it! Does anyone else on here really pay attention to lighting and such in movies now due to our yard haunting love? I sure do.

Also, it's funny how, now that Halloween is past us, I have the time for my horror movies again.

I just rewatched Silent Hill.

That movie’s atmosphere and effects are just spot on. The nurses still get me.. And how much practical effects were used. Not to mention the town with the ash falling. Then the first time the siren sounds and everything starts peeling away.
