    "The Japanese love paranormal phenomena" -Megumi,

    They call this a "reimagining" of the Thai film Shutter... apparently Americans "imagine" adding shit to good films.

    ★★★

    "You can't fake a polaroid" - Main guy... is that even true?

    - Daily Horror Hunt 15 (Sept '19): boxd.it/3JrCO
    Clue 8: Watch a horror movie made in Asia, but not made in Japan or South Korea.

    This is why I hate taking pictures... just too much to risk and my soul already belongs to the devil.

    A photographer and his wife start to see strange beams of light in his photographs right after a tragic accident has occurred. They…

    Clue 14: Watch a horror film featuring a spider

    Finally, a movie willing to showcase a mediocre white guy in a lead role.

    A spider becomes bigger and bigger and an exterminator becomes an unlikely hero, even though he…

    Tales from the Hood 2

    ★★★½

    "I'm trying to flip the script and make horror redemptive" - Rusty Cundieff, the director (nif).

    - Daily Horror Hunt 15 (Sept '19): boxd.it/3JrCO

    Day 7: Watch something from <Todd>'s personal top 25

    That's why I never play two truths and a lie with Mark Duplass.

    Fourth watch, and because of a clue I assigned I am watching this film and while watching the film I made a decision about the film that invalidates the clue.…

  • Creep

    Creep

    ★★★★½

    "Did it make you think I might kill you?" - Joseph, yes it did.

    Hey, that's the gig economy, Aaron accepted payment.

    In creep, a man accepts $1,000 to be a videographer for a day for a dude who is kind of weird in an unsettling way... I wish I could think of the right word to describe him. Anyways, the day goes kind of weird and things go bad. It's the best. This is my fourth watch so yeah…

  • Angel's Egg

    Angel's Egg

    ★★★★★

    "You have to break an egg to know what is inside" - man,

    - Film Club Ranked: boxd.it/3M2sq

    This movie features the most blood-curdling scream in film history... yeah I said it.

    In Angel's Egg a young girl guards an egg while walking through a desolate dreamland. She encounters a second wanderer that she journeys with who challenges some of the aspects of her deadfaced, blind dedication to the protection of the egg. What ensues is a mostly silent film…

    - 2019 Ranked: boxd.it/2lsbC
    - Stephen King Films Ranked: boxd.it/23MKw

    You know if I had a fever and the only prescription was more Bill Skarsgard in clown makeup, I would have only BARELY survived.

    All considered, I would say that this is a clear step down from part 1 but still highly entertaining and visually exciting. The casting is perfect as each of the adult actors really feels…

  • Luce

    Luce

    ★★★★½

    “I read the communist manifesto once in college and called everyone comrade for a month” -Amy, describing how my career started.

    - 2019 Ranked: boxd.it/2lsbC

    This movie is a Rorschach test for each audience member's concepts of justice and I have been declared legally insane.

    Luce was adopted from Eritrea by a white family (Tim Roth and Naomi Watts). He was being raised as a child soldier when brought to the United States at 7 and went through years of…

  • Blue Crush

    Blue Crush

    ★★½

    "You're the sort of girl would never ask a man what to do." - QB Matt Tollman,

    - Scavenger Hunt 54 (Sept '19): boxd.it/3QsyW
    Task 21. Watch a movie primarily based in Hawaii (9/30 complete)

    Ninety-five percent of the surf terminology I know is now because of this movie.

    - Daily Horror Hunt #15 (Sept. 2019): boxd.it/3JrCO
    Task 6: Let's kick it old school with a werewolf movie

    I wanted less werewolves and more swearwolves.

    This is another film where the entirety of the drama would have been avoided if men just listened to women. In An American Werewolf in Paris, three horny American boys go to Paris to party and…

  • Zoolander 2

    Zoolander 2

    "I already told you, it's like you're not even listening to me." - Zoolander,

    - Scavenger Hunt 54 (Sept. '19): boxd.it/3QsyW
    Clue 9. Watch a movie about fashion. (8/31 completed)

    Making a comedy sequel is like telling fate to go fuck itself.

    I think the problem is that in this film you never have a sane character that is able to ground the story and assure you that "yes, these people are weird" and that just leaves crazy people saying…
