    The Ring

    ★★★½

    Horror Rewind 2002. Creepy enough I suppose (especially that videotape) but gets bogged down by an overly procedural plot and a bloated runtime of nearly 2 hours. I have to give this credit for sticking the finish though. This has enough jolts in it for being a PG-13 horror film I guess. I remember when this was a runaway success back in the fall of 2002. It made $250 million worldwide off a modest $48 million budget. Fun Fact: The girl who played played Samara (Daveigh Chase) was also the voice of Lilo in Lilo & Stitch earlier in the year.

    Suspiria

    ★★★★½

    And Dismember the Alamo concluded with the new 4K restoration of Suspiria! Yes, I've seen this twice now over the last week! Some more observations.

The score, visuals and atmosphere really push this one over the edge! DCP

I do agree that they could have cut like 20 min out of this. Have you ever wanted to see Elton John drop F-Bombs and kick a little ass? Well, you will in this movie! I do like that they extrapolated the Kingsman Service over to American shores and now we've got Julianne Moore (who is great here), Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry and Channing Tatum roped (pun intended) up in this franchise!

    My Demon Lover

    ★★★

    Horror Rewind 1987. So I was totally going to do a 30th Anniversary screening of this back on April 24th and be like "I'm sure that I'm the only person doing a 30th Anniversary screening of My Demon Lover" but decided to just save it for a cereal party in October. And I'm not saying that this is some kind of great comedy because it isn't. I guess this was an attempt to get Scott Valentine (who was big on…
