So, they're all putting on sexy lingerie  and checking out the strange noise in the basement, while carrying no flashlight or phone?

Salmon: AliceBToklasLives: I've seen a lot of westerns so I should not have any difficulty riding a horse.

I've seen enough horror movies to know not to get laid.


I haven't had sex in over a decade; I'm bulletproof.

Wendigogo: adj_m: Mostly don't find horror movies too interesting, and still handling things ok? SO loves them but I can only laugh at cheese so much, (99% of them) truly scary movies are few and far inbetween, and for the most part they're only scary the first time. They don't make movies like Alien and Jaws much these days, movies that are still fun to watch even when you know what's coming. Also I'm not 12 anymore and no movie is going to scare me more than looking at a delicious jalapeno laden pizze while pondering acid reflux. Walking Dead had some quality moments with the whole 'kill off main characters' novelty at first, but eventually got stale and I lost interest in the comic and show both times right after dude was brained in by Lucille (ya farked up Kirkman).

Scariest movie I've seen in the last 10 years: Insidious. I don't know why I found it so spooky, and never watched the sequels. I've had sleep issues all my life and something about getting trapped in a lucid dream and the invisible sleep demon broke through the cynic shell and resonated hard in unreasonable ways. Still makes my skin crawl, and it wasn't even that good!

Ok maybe Coronavirus is getting to me a bit. I have begun getting squirrely inside public buildings, seeing almost no one wearing masks. My new dentist coughed directly into my mouth a week ago. Going to have to polish up the resume because work doesn't seem like it will be returning this year. I think I'll go watch 'US (2019)' and pretend I don't live around a bunch of 'zombie bait/let's split up and look for the sound/what's behind this weird door' people for an hour or two. Looks like it has good ratings.

Worth a try if you haven't seen them:
Session 9
Lights Out
The Conjuring
Let the Right One In
Cabin in the Woods
Babadook
A Quiet Place
It Follows

adj_m: waxbeans: adj_m: Dang, 'Us' was almost a really good movie. Kind of a let down after 'Get Out'. Should have either been 10 minutes shorter or done a better job explaining how the [spoiler] worked.

What.

Both epic.

Made all the franchise horror movies look like garbage

Get Out was really good, but Us.. well I don't want to spoil anything, it's still worth watching imo and looking forward to more from Jordan Peele. Still can't call any movie epic where I have to make up plot points in my head to justify its own internal logic though.

lol, harsh, but fair, although I don't watch CinemaSins. I do set myself up for disappointment by really enjoying sci-fi and fantasy type movies (of all genres) and also needing some level of internal consistancy. Like if you're going to establish specific rules in your world, just follow those rules! Turns out that's a lot to expect from movies, and when those rules are casually broken It pulls me out and ruins the suspension of disbelief.

I still liked the movie overall, but would have prefered if they hadn't even tried to explain the weirder shiat over what they went with. The largest plothole also wouldn't have been difficult to explain really easily.
