@lowqualityfacts Oh dear, I see that the CCP has infiltrated my favourite low quality information source.

Stole this image from someone who stole this image, and I'm stealing the question, too:

WHAT FILM MADE YOU GO 'WTF DID I JUST WATCH'?

Off the top of my head:

Mother! definitely. Also Society, The Outwaters, Final Prayer (aka The Borderlands), Dead Alive (aka Brain Dead), Skinamarink, The Human Centipede, Infinity Pool, Antichrist, Hausu, Secretary. And I love them all.

What about you?

@stina_marie @horror That cute little rom/com with Gyllenhaal and Spader made you go "WTF"?

@stina_marie @horror We're fans.
(I'm pals with the family; I covered their first major feature, and game them their first interview, ever, for "the Deeper You Dig".)

@stina_marie @horror I managed to catch that at its Fantasia Festival screening, back when it was titled just "Huesera".

A fine addition to the the supernatural horror canon.

@stina_marie @horror I see you may be of a different mindset, but I've had about enough of 2023.

Whether or not 2024 will be better or worse is an open question (I lean toward the former, but I'm an inveterate optimist), but I strongly suspect it will at least provide more clarity.

Looks like Ari Aster's Beau Is Afraid (2023) is on Paramount+/Showtime in the US now for anyone who's been wanting to watch.

📽️ What's a horror movie that you feel is so: striking, unique, disturbing, profound, &/or beautiful that it transcends to the level of ART?
(Not for just a scene, or moments, or even a performance, but for the ENTIRE film.)

Four that immediately occurred to me:

The Shining
The Devils
The Wolf House
There Will Be Blood

I can think of more but I'm curious what YOU all think...

I have to go eat & do stuff but I'll be back on later to see what you all said!

@stina_marie @horror A very good group. I'd argue that "the Lighthouse" well turns the corner to something more than horror.

@stina_marie @horror If you include "nightmarish" in the broader Horror genre, few films I've seen are more unsettling than this black & white oddity. https://366weirdmovies.com/reader-recommendation-khrustalyov-my-car-1998/

My order came in today!
So happy- I got all of these at GREAT prices during their Clearance sale and I had none of them on Blu-ray. It's going to be whole new experiences watching them! 😍

@stina_marie @horror Love your work, Stina. And I think i recognize that one.

You may be tickled to hear that your tiny art-works fit nicely in Magic™ card sleeves. I've given away a couple as prizes to very appreciative winners.

🪙 About to start season 2 of 30 Coins. 🪙

I'd be worried that they "jump the shark," but one could argue that the entire show has been everyone doing exactly that, and it's been AWESOME, so I hope they keep it up.

@stina_marie @horror Presumably we may look forward to twenty-eight seasons after this one.

@pebbe @stina_marie @horror I've enjoyed some of HBO's programming since, but still have not forgiven that slight.

stina_marie , to horror

Well, we watched it. It was... a movie.

I'm not sure how you take well-written, previously existing material for a compelling prequel, cast a bunch of really talented people, and still wind up with a milquetoast, totally forgettable movie- but somebody did, so I guess... Good job. It wasn't even BAD- just utterly unremarkable.

Also, the lack of Maine accents (in general, but for JUDD CRANDALL, of all people) was irritating.

@horror

gilesforyou ,
@gilesforyou@mastodon.coffee avatar

@stina_marie @horror I had presumed that all Stephen King material was legally stipulated to feature Maine accents.

gilesforyou ,
@gilesforyou@mastodon.coffee avatar

@stina_marie @horror "Difficult accent to master"?

Tens of thousands of non-professional-performers have it Nailed.

But of course, I am entirely in agreement with you. I have less experience with King than most people, but even I know that he really, really likes Maine, and really, really likes to feature its presence, traditions, and quirks in his fiction.
