    Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    Saw this today and loved it. Best movie of Phase 4, which I realize doesn't sound like THAT much of an accomplishment, but it's really, really good. (I mean, I loved No Way Home, but that was way more for nostalgia-bait reasons that had little to do with the quality of the movie) It felt like a...

    Thanks! I'll give that a watch. Eventually. :)

    I've really gotta watch that original Phantom someday. Just so I can say I've seen the Big 3 of silent horror (along with Caligari and Nosferatu). But silent films are one movie prejudice I've yet to conquer. I can respect them, I can even watch them academically, but they just don't really do...

    Just saw "Bodies Bodies Bodies", and enjoyed it a lot. Jeez, between this, "Barbarian", "Black Phone", and "Nope", this has really been a good year for me for original horror movies.

    A movie called Barbarian just hit HBO Max, and I'm giving it a big recommend. It's the rare movie I went into knowing absolutely nothing about it. I never saw a trailer, and I only became aware of it through the fortunate happenstance of everyone online praising it and at the same time not...

    My favorite one of these that I've seen:

    Yeah, I think the Horseman was one good Lee/Cushing Hammer joint away from being regarded as one of the top-tier monsters. As it is, everyone's heard of him, but I don't think he's near the top of anyone's list of favorites.

    I don't usually go in for Four Horseman stuff, but this Headless Horseman hit at just the right time to make him an irresistible impulse buy for me. I've handled better-constructed toys, to be honest, but this thing is still cool as hell.

    I signed up for a month of Peacock to watch a couple of new/recent movies, with mixed results. Black Phone I wanted to see this in the theater, but just couldn't get around to it. I wish I had, though, because it was awesome. I haven't read the short story it was based on, but was not in the...

    I actually didn't think I'd be participating in spooky season as much this year, as I have a ton of stuff going on at the moment. But looking back, I've actually piled up a respectably amount of first-time watches so far. Dark Glasses (2022) - Shudder I just happened upon this; Shudder aired...

    You should check out the "sequel" to the Karloff one, The Mummy's Hand. Not REALLY a sequel, since it's about a completely different mummy. But it's a decent watch, and you'll find it's where the Fraser version got its more action-adventurey tone from.

    God, now I wanna see that. Quasimodo: "Sanctuary!" John Cleese: "Mmm, really more of a Roman-Catholic thing, isn't it."

    Obligatory "he was even better in 'Son of Frankenstein' than he was in 'Dracula'" post.

    Between Ygor, Fritz, and Daniel (J. Carrol Naish's character in House of Frankenstein), I kinda feel like Universal just thinks of the very concept of a hunchback as one of the monsters in their stable. Not the most sensitive way to look at it, but, y'know...*gestures broadly in the direction of...

    Yay, happy to see this thread resurrected. :) I did the same, except my copy's on Audible and the information they provide is usually crap. Thankfully, someone in the review section identified it as "not the 1818 version". Hopefully that's the big set with all the sequels. Each series...
