Saw Noroi (The Curse) today. Iirc from 2005.

Decent japanese horror movie, supposedly based on a real case.

I feel like I've probably seen that, but I can't really remember it. I'll give it another look.

I tried watching Rings, the recent Hollywood Ring sequel. I couldn't make it past the first two minutes. The first thing the guy says is "Have you heard the story about the videotape that if you watch it you die seven days later?" Yeah, not too on-the-nose there, mate. If someone tells me it's worth pushing through that awful intro, then I'll give it another go.

I watched Pet on Netflix the other day. More thriller than horror, but it was a pretty cool twist on the 'guy-kidnaps-girl' mechanic. Worth a look.

I also got around to watching Don't Breathe, which was fun, but not really what I was expecting.

What We Do In The Shadows

A really fun take on the life of a group of vampires but unlike "Interview With The Vampire" which focuses on the epic adventure of their "lives" spanning eras, this movie is about the humdrum day-to-day existence of what it really might be like if a group of fairly average "people" had to live together for centuries.

Great stuff with an awkward, low-key New Zealand sense of humour.

I saw the Clovehitch killer (iirc title of the movie is 'Clovehitch').
It was decent. Not that believable, but at least the first half of the movie had good atmosphere :)

Saw this almost a month ago:



It is a quite interesting movie. It would also work as a horror adventure game, due to the very elaborate centerpiece :)

I think the most recent horror film I've watched, was the latest Halloween film. (Halloween 2018)
I went in expecting something laughably bad. But it was remarkably good. I'd highly recommend it.
It's not very scary though. At least to me.

Hereditary was pretty good:


Errementari was a fun one to me, although more a folktale than horror:


Aterrados was great as well. The story was so so but it had some genuinly creepy moments and great effects:

Recently a lot of good horror movies come from Spain, it's impressive.
