"I realized that what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... evil."
John Carpenter's Halloween is simply a masterpiece. While it wasn't the first slasher film, it was the one that defined the genre, and the quintessential example for decades to come. With the flawless simplicity of the plot, subtle horror and masteful building of tension and paranoia, Halloween is the best slasher film of all time, and one of the best horror films to boot.
“What’s your favorite scary movie?”
Scream. Scream is my favorite scary movie.
Wes Craven's magnum opus and the film that resurrected the slasher genre, Scream is an absolutely flawless meta blend of horror and comedy that outdoes the very films that it parodies, and one of my favorite films of all time.
The opening sequence is extremely effective in establishing the rules of the film that is about to follow, in that everybody is a suspect, no one is safe,…
"Dead guys don't just get up, and they sure as hell don't keep killing people"
An average sequel to an average film, Chromeskull brings a lot more to the table plot wise, and the acting is far better, but really it just wasn't very remarkable by any means.
As with the first, the gore and kills are great, seriously amazingly done, but other than that the film is quite a bore, and adding a whole organization behind Chromeskull just ruins…
"He wants to make me dead"
I've seen Laid to Rest getting a lot of praise, and I absolutely love 2000s slashers, but this really just didn't click with me. The brutal kills and gory practical effects are extremely well done, some of the best of the 2000s, but other than that the characters, cinematography, music and pretty much everything else is just really bland.
Chromeskull is an alright villain, but he feels like what a 13 year old thinks…
"He's waited for this night... he's waited for me... I've waited for him."
First saw this at an early Q&A event with Jamie Lee Curtis, and it was an amazing experience, the audience was great and Jamie is really funny and entertaining.
Halloween is a fantastic sequel, coming back 40 years later better than any entry since the first, staying faithful to the original and Carpenter's vision whilst adding enough to make it a great standalone film. Michael Myers is…
"Don't mess with the Kappa bitch!"
Happy Death Day is a really fun, rewatchable horror-comedy flick, I've seen it 3 times now and enjoyed it just as much as the first. While it isn't a masterpiece by any means, it doesn't try to be, and rather is just a fun, comfortable slasher with great humor and an interesting twist.
The scene where Tree is nice to everyone is so wholesome, and the 'Confident' montage is so much fun, all around just a really enjoyable slasher comedy.
Shoutout to the bong kill!
