    Candyman

    Man I can't believe it took me this long to see this film, it's up there with the best. While it's not scary to me, it's really suspenseful and the music by Philip Glass elevated the film even more. It's also got some pretty good performances which is pretty rare for horror films.
    9/10

    That movie did scare me when I was younger. I remember friends wanting to play the mirror game.

    The Innkeepers. 8/10

    [​IMG]
    I really enjoyed this throwback to classic ghost films but with modern characters. I liked the character development and slow build towards the scares. This director has a respect for the genre and I hope he continues to make films like this. The only downside was that more could of been explained. Also there were some good scares but I didn't find myself dreading the last act. Good film though.


    The Triangle 7/10


    [​IMG]


    This film reminded me of Primer but without the explanation. I thought it was good and surprising for a psychological horror. I'm not even sure I understand the ending. It's a weird film but interesting to watch unfold. It is frustrating to see the main character fall into the same patterns though.

    Heh, I wondered if anybody would catch that.

    I suppose it really speaks to how well Ultimatum capped off the story that this new chapter feels so awkwardly added on. The more I think about Legacy, the more frustrated I get. It has its moments, but there were an awful lot of loose wires. Many of the dialogue scenes ran way too long and made me realize that the previous films were really good at getting to the point in terms of who the characters are and what they're going on about. Maybe they can pick things up if there's another sequel, but I don't really care. The story's over.

    NEVER BACK DOWN

    In a way, a high school version of Fight Club, mixed with stuff here and there
    Fun, but not something one needs to see again

    E.T. The Extra Terrestrial

    First ever viewing. Fantastic, if we're not counting Close Encounters, I'd put this as the top of the Amblin (Style) films. Really fun stuff.

    Yeah I can totally see how it would scare kids, if I saw this as a kid I would s*** my pants.

    Looking forward to it. :up:

    Dark Shadows.

    It's a shame, if the entire movie had the tone of the first act, it would have easily been one of my more preferred Burton movies. But, sadly, I lost interest once the second and third acts devolved into random zaniness.

    Of course, I had never seen the latter run of the show, so perhaps I'm just missing inside jokes and references.

    Batman.

    As a child, I always thought the black man who fights Batman in the cathedral was Ray Charles.
