What Are You Watching?


Recommended Posts

Been watchin' Kakegurui on Netflix. It's follows the protag (female) in a special highschool where everyone essentially gambles. It's pretty badass. It's got quite the twist and there's so many hooks at the end of each episode that I just have to keep watching. If anyone's a fan of anime and has a netflix acc, I highly recommend it!

That movie did a number on me when I was only 9 or 10 years old.  I was never into horror movies, I'm still not, but the older kids loved it.

 

I do have a few movies that I like that skirt the horror genre.

 

Army of Darkness

Aliens

Resident Evil 1

Train to Busan

Predator 1 

IT (2017)

Freddy VS Jason

Cloverfield Paradox

Jurassic Park

A Quiet Place

 

These are a few of the ones that jump out at me.

Yeah, I watched the first 10 minutes with my dad when I was 7, had to leave the room after the dog scene lol. Gonna watch it again with a friend soon! Army of Darkness is funny af, Aliens is probably one of the first horror films I ever saw, the woman stuck in the wall begging to be killed still gives me chills. X)

 

I don't think I've watch ressy 1 all the way through, but it has some great tension with the elevator at the start and the laser grid room. Haven't seen train to busan but it's on my list and looks like what WWZ should have been. Pred 1 is a classic but super camp lol. IT I haven't seen but have heard good things about. Not seen any nightmare or 13th films, I can only imagine the crossover is quite goofy. Paradox is such an odd film, dunno why it was part of the trilogy. Jurassic Park is bloody ace! and so is a quite place.

 

That's a great list, I might sit down and see if I can list a bunch myself at some point, but if I were to recommend you some I'd say Shaun of the dead, Rec and maybe the host.

@Fatkid Forger There was one that was on the tip of my tongue but I couldn't place it.  Ya, Shaun of the Dead is now becoming a classic.  Never heard of Rec but The Host wasn't bad.  It could have done with a little more depth and oomph. 

 

fwiw, I never really got into the freddy or Jason films but I had seen a couple.  Freddy VS Jason took the fromage route that Nightmare on elm was pushing near the end and mixed it with the stoic dark murder vibe of Jason.   It was a great straight man vs funny man movie set in a horror film.   I mean it could have been better but it's a good ride with you're campy loving friends and a few drinks.

 

The camp is what i love about Predator and pretty much any of my favorite Arnold or 80's/90's era movies.

 

Paradox was the movie that kind of tied all that shit together.  After that the other movies end up being more like spinoffs.
