    I did see the first one. Working on the second. Though I am not a big found footage movie fan, this movie wasn't too bad. However, The House October Built, there are two, I feel are better acted.

    The Empty Man
    I thoroughly enjoyed the opening sequence and was hoping this would be a decent film. I was wrong. What started off as a pretty interesting supernatural horror movie, eventually ended up being a detective story that jumped around plots and storylines. You have a retired detective taking matters into his own hands when his neighbor's daughter goes missing. He does more then the police could ever do #sarcasm that the cops are an after thought. Where were they in this movie? Anyway, it was a very long film, too long, and it disappointed as it progressed. It had a budget, and the actors weren't bad, but the story fell flat and left me wondering what I was watching as it progressed. 2/5

    Hunter Hunter
    Well acted, dreary setting, where a wolf is killing animals this small family traps. A real sad way of living imo. Anyway, the husband goes out to hunt the wolf and runs into a serial killer dump. Overall I enjoyed the film. It was well acted, I liked the characters and felt their despair. I wish it would have went more of the cops and the family hunting or wondering where the killer was/is, but it doesn't. I will add, the ending is very rough to watch and has haunted me for days though I consider this a dark thriller and not a horror film. 7/10

    Son
    A woman has a son where the longer he doesn't "eat" he takes on physical pain and becomes annoying. I felt it was OK, but something I really wouldn't push anyone to watch unless they were desperate for horror. 2/5

    The Vigil
    I tend to lose interest in horror movies that trick me with a descent trailer. With horror being by far my favorite genre as I assume people here too since this is basically a King fan site, I make a valid effort to watch horror movies that are out there. Not many good recent horror movies out there as this was no different. 2/5

    Why does it feel like horror movies are always undervalued? One thing’s for certain: In this age of geekery reigning supreme, critics and academics no longer dismiss the genre as disreputable with the kneejerk regularity some once did. But even now there’s talk of “elevated horror,” of artier explorations of dread and terror — Ari Aster’s “Hereditary” and Luca Guadagnino’s “Suspiria” being two very recent examples — that are clearly distinguished from, well, non-elevated horror. The idea being that they engage your brain more than just showing brains being splattered against the wall.

    How can films that fire your adrenal glands, send shivers down your spine, raise goosebumps, and quicken breath — that inspire such an intense physical reaction — also be cerebral experiences? We forget all the time that, as Anna Karina’s Pierrot Le Fou character Marianne Renoir says, “There can be ideas in feelings.”

    What scares people says a lot about them — as the recent debate about what it means if a viewer finds certain elements of “Get Out” scary or funny revealed very clearly. “Get Out” showed the similarity between horror and comedy, the two genres most often expected to provoke an immediate, visceral reaction. Maybe the aversion some viewers have to both genres is a fear of losing control: of laughing so hard you snort or having to turn away in fright, of embarrassing yourself. A lot of people simply don’t want to lose control, no matter what. What’s funny is that horror, like comedy, is a genre in which each filmmaker has to assert his or her utmost control over the material, has to perfectly calibrate the storytelling, so that we can lose it. Extreme control so that the audience can lose control.

    The IndieWire staff put together this list of the 100 Greatest Horror Movies of All-Time to celebrate these intensely primal, personal films. Our writers and editors suggested over 150 titles and then voted on a list of finalists to determine the ultimate ranking. We hope it’s a list that captures the wide range and diversity of the genre, from underseen Laird Cregar vehicles to a Russian chiller based on a Nikolai Gogol story, from J-Horror to the Mexican gem “Alucarda.” Brace yourself for these movies: losing control will never be so much fun.

    I think horror movies are undervalued because not everyone likes them. I don't have many friends that love them like I do. Funny thing is, based on cost to make, they are one of the biggest money makers for movie companies. I read that somewhere. I am a true horror fan, but also love dramas and thrillers that blend into the horror genre. Sci-fi does it well to at times.

    Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It
    Overall it wasn't bad. The pace was quicker then you would expect. It definitely wasn't solely on following the killer and his trial so I am not sure how much was actually factual to fiction. In real life we know Arne Johnson killed someone because he allegedly was possessed. He actually only served 5 years which is a surprise. But the story goes through other crimes and tends to look for similarities and even to prove the same demon had correlation with other cases. It was my least favorite of the three, but I did enjoy it and it was well acted.

    It's hard to take a horror movie list seriously if A Tale of Two Sisters doesn't even make the top 50. It's not only one of the best horror movies of all time, it should make the top 50 for any movie, regardless of genre. Same for classics like The Sixth Sense or Jacob's Ladder. I guess the compiler of the list just wants the goopy parts or jump scares. Audition at #13? If not for the shock value, should not even make the top 100. Perhaps Audition should be #1 for "most overrated movie by fanboys who don't know any better."

    Although it's nice to see House listed. Also, two by Argento. But where's Opera?

    The Mortuary Collection 2019
    I never heard of it but someone mentioned it, so I have it a look. For an anthology movie, it was really good. Not scary per say, but had it's creepy and bloody moments. It was well acted, has some interesting stories, and shot well. 6/10

    Listed as a horror movie but I feel it is more of a thriller fantasy type movie. The cinematography was great imo. The acting was very well done, it had a unique and creepy story, the movie moved forward with little lag and it was intriguing to see where everything was headed, and it wasn't too bloody but it had it's disturbing moments. All in all it was very good and if someone is looking for something a little different and unique, then this would be something to consider. 7/10

    it's been awhile since i last watched a horror movie these last few i have not seen yet, found footage films should as i always say stay lost as i cannot stand them, all i get is fucking dizzy as hell whenever i try to watch one cause the camera is all over the damn place.

    Werewolves Within
    A horror comedy where everyone is trapped in a hotel because a road is blocked and a bad snow storm is happening, and people believe a werewolf is killing people and it is hiding among them. Surprisingly the characters were all unique, fun, and had good dialogue. Overall I was surprised I liked it. 3/5

    Separation
    The wife dies and the husband has to take care of his daughter alone and she starts talking to "her mother" and start seeing her father's puppet creations coming to life. I enjoyed the open sequence of the film and I do like the characters within the movie, but there were so many times the story dragged with nothing substantial to hold your attention. The "scares" in the film weren't frightening and the CGI looked low budget. I really wanted to see this film, and I didn't care for it at all. 2/5

    I recently watched the Fear Street trilogy on Netflix. I was pleasantly surprised. Not a horror masterpiece, but a lot of fun. Pays a lot of homage to the genre, right from the opening scene, and I liked how the three films were connected. It's a bit surprising that these weren't released in October, to be honest. Not just because of the genre, but also because of how fun they were. Definitely good to rewatch during the month, at least.
