    Without spoilers let me just say that a certain scene in the first act of the movie will either disturb you for days or you'll watch the entire movie thinking it is goofy. And I'd agree - some % of the movie is absolutely goofy but in a good way that hearkens back to another movie I won't mention for fear of spoiling it.

    It's a polarizing movie - I won't lie - but people of a specific stripe seem to find the movie more unnerving than the rest and I can't say more without spoiling what I'm talking about.

    Holy ****ing **** as a parent the scene you know I'm talking about bothered me in a really good way.

    Did you see Midsommar? That was the follow up from the director. I thought that both were mesmerizing, although not for everyone. I’ve been wanting to go back and give Hereditary a second view.

    If you can't name the movie just call it "The Scottish Movie." Works for... ahem... the Scottish play.

    I think for any Scottish movie or Scottish play if it’s made because everyone can wear a kilt, you have a haggis problem.

    Yeah I'm gonna fire that one up soon. Running through a lot of the horror movies I've watched recently and most of them were underwhelming. Honestly the horror elements in Hereditary were not very scary. I think I just am too aware that most of these movies aren't reality to get all that bothered.

    Hell, out of all the horror movies I've seen lately other than 1 scene in Hereditary probably the best horror scene I've seen in a long time was the bit in King Kong (2005) where gollum gets eaten by those big worms.

    Yeah, I prefer the creepier psychological thrillers much more than gory stuff too, but Hereditary and Midsommar seemed to offer an artsy type of viewpoint in terms of shock value, so I found that to be entertaining.

    Some of the ones that I’ve enjoyed:

    Goodnight Mommy
    The Witch
    The Others

    The Others was fun but similar to like, Aliens or whatever, more of a drama to me than anything.

    I'll consider the other two. I've heard the Babadook is good too but that one already got spoiled for me.

    Have you seen the new Halloween yet? I’m not big on slasher films either, but that was surprisingly good.

    Yeah Halloween 2018 was good, really glad they decided to pretend everything after the first one never happened because that was really the only way they could get back to what made it good in the first place.

    I've been on a bit of a horror/thriller kick lately, the ones I've really enjoyed and would recommend a few for anyone who hasn't seen them:

    The Green Room- pretty violent, but I'm not into torture porn/gorefest stuff and I was fine with it. I think anyone that's okay with Hereditary is likely good. Plus you get to see Patrick Stewart play the leader of a skinhead gang.

    The Witch- super atmospheric and dark, takes place in 1600s New England and is all about getting you into the atmosphere, to the point that the lighting and character dialects can make it difficult to watch. Payoff is good though, solid movie.

    The Endless- really, really good. I don't want to even say anymore, just watch it.

    It Follows- a few years old now, but I watch it about once a year and just saw it again a couple weeks ago. More creepy and atmospheric than violent, in fact the most violent scene in the movie happens like 5 minutes in and isn't bad. The whole theme of it stuck with me for a few days after though.

    Goodnight Mommy has an interesting premise. A woman returns home from some type of accident or reconstructive surgery, and her demeanor has changed so much that her young children aren’t sure whether or not it’s really her underneath the bandages.

    It received an 86% on Rotten Tomatoes, and an 81% on Metacritic. It was a pretty decent thriller. Those in charge of the film have since parlayed their success from this into a new movie called “The Lodge,” which had the popular film festivals buzzing about its widespread early 2020 release.

    The one drawback is that it was written and directed by two Germans, so the film is subtitled. You don’t come off as a shallow, narrow-minded individual like myself, who was moderately annoyed by this for the first 10 minutes, having seen it at the theater. After about 20 minutes, the movie had drawn me in enough to where I no longer even noticed.

    @BradyFTW!

    I had The Witch on my list too, and in case you hadn’t already heard, the follow up project from those responsible (not sure if writers or director) have since made another super dark film called The Lighthouse, which stars both William Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, and opens this coming Friday. It’s currently sitting at a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes.

    Hell yeah, I can't wait to see it, will probably catch it opening weekend. At this point I'm pretty much in on anything Robert Eggers makes, he's up there with Ari Aster for me. When someone's first movie is that good you gotta see whatever he does next.

    That scene was literally jaw dropping. Couldn’t believe it. Opening scene of Midsommar throws you back too.

    Lots of good horror these days, Jordan Peele’s in there too even though Us was a miss to me.
