    Brian De Palma Marathon film #22

    There is a line you cross, you don't never come back from. Point of no return. Dave crossed it. I'm here with him. That means I am going along for the ride. The whole ride. All the way to the end of the line, wherever that is

    There is a fascinating Q&A with Brian De Palma conducted by Jake Coyle where the topic of directors being in their "pinnacle" comes up. Coyle then asked…

    Horror Hunt #28 (October 2020) Day #21
    (Prompt 21: "October 21st is Back to the Future Day, so we're gonna watch something with time travel")

    Here we are, the two of us. And it ends the same. History doesn't repeat itself. It rhymes

    Time travel? Horror, thriller, mystery? Sold. Actually, besides the basic synopsis and genre, I did not know anything about this film. As it turns out, that was for the best, because I watched intrigued as the plot…

    Horror Hunt #28 (October 2020) Day #18
    (Prompt 18: "A film that takes place in space, at least partially")

    We're not out on the belt collecting data. And we're not hauling cargo. We are the cargo

    Horror Hunt #28 (October 2020) Day #15
    (Prompt 15: " You have to laugh every once in a while, so time to watch a horror comedy ")
    Hooptober Se7en ( 4/7 2nd films of franchises, 2/6 decades (1990s))

    You know, you might come in useful. While they are eating you it will give me a chance to get away

    The first Tremors is a cult classic, so I was wary of watching this sequel, and a straight to video release…

    Horror Hunt #28 (October 2020) Day #12
    (Prompt 12: " My guess is that pretty much everyone doing this is also participating in Hooptober, so watch something that Cinemonster has rated 4+ in tribute to his efforts ")
    Hooptober Se7en ( 6 countries, 6 decades)

    I can feel death in this room! I feel a presence, a twisted mind sending me thoughts! Perverted, murderous thoughts... Go away! You have killed! And you will kill again!

    I respond well to great…
