Me too, just last November.  Wife wouldn't let me take a picture of it, I figured it wasn't worth risking pissing her off let alone the doll.

Life sized boy doll, the story behind it, the house (we tracked it down too) and the guy coming back as an adult?  Super creepy.

Wife was out of town all weekend, which allowed me to greatly reduce my queue.  Everything below is on Amazon streaming, some require the Shudder add-on, which I highly recommend. Monsters - Amer

Did they roll off of her plate? 

I wish 8:23PM me decided on something different. 

I re-watched Midsommar 

Man.....it was a brutal movie. I enjoyed it more the second time around too. Caught a lot more foreshadowing. Now I need to give Hereditary another spin.

Just watched Hereditary for the 4th time with the family and I swear we see new things every time. A lot of layers and hidden stuff in that movie. I have seem Midsommar twice--it is a very brutal watch.

Yeah Midsommar is a really good movie. It got better on the second watch....so much so I ordered the Directors cut in the 4K collectors edition. 

Hereditary was a movie that had me thinking a lot after my first watch.....I was not a huge fan because I think I went into it with the wrong expectations. Now that I now what kind of movie it is.....I am really looking forward to me second screening tomorrow. It was very creepy....but I felt I missed a lot the first time around.

Love Hereditary, one if my faves of the last few years. Recently re-watched The Witch, another of my faves. Very slow burn but I love the atmosphere.

Hereditary was so much better the second time around. Caught a lot I had missed the first time through. Insane climax. It all came together for me like Midsommar did on the second viewing.

 

They are both modern horror classics in ky book. Just pure creep factor on 11.

IMO Midsommar went a little too heavy on the foreshadowing with the pics on the walls, the tapestry as they walked by, etc...   An interesting movie experience for sure, but didn't get to me nearly as much as Hereditary did.

I watched and really like Fried Barry on Shudder. It's probably not for everyone and I doubt I would spend much time defending it but I really liked it.

I have been listening to a podcast called Psycho Analysis. I re watched Midsommar  for an episode of this podcast. I think I liked Midsommar better on a second viewing. I am interested to hear what they say on the podcast.

It's a fun podcast that talks about various mental illness and horror. Midsommar falls under toxic and abusive relationships, lol.

Interesting.  I might have to add that to my rotation of 50+ podcasts.

I did like Midsommar a little more on 2nd viewing, but besides that opening section I still can't shake the feeling of let down after Hereditary had me by the throat for the duration of the movie.   Midsommar didn't have that tension/dread for me at all - just more messed up than anything.

I agree and they did touch on this in the podcast. They blame it on Peter not deserving what he got, whereas dude in bear suit did deserve what he got, in context with that world. That is a pretty dumbed down version of their explanation but it made sense to me.

Body Cam

Interesting take on a haunting/revenge story involving a police coverup. Certainly wasn’t expecting this plot and am happy for it. 3.5/5

Antebellum 

I didn’t actually know anything about this film going into it, but it’s really trying hard to be 2 different films at the same time. I did enjoy The Normal’s Warm Leatherette played in the abduction scene. 2/5

Becky

I guess this could be considered  suspense/thriller too. I would describe this as a dark Home Alone or a more extreme The Good Son in terms of violence. Kevin James’ performance could have been a lot darker imo. He was hard to take seriously, but he tried.  The big guy from Sherlock Holmes is in it too as well as Joel McHale. I liked the main character, Becky, and clearly they set this up for a potential sequel/continuation of Becky’s path on the dark side. 3/5

Watching it now and it’s weak. Disappointing, but didn’t expect much to begin with.

Agree with you. I gave it a 5/10

Easily the weakest entry into the entire Conjuring Universe. Not horrible. But a huge disappointment. I have little desire to ever watch it again.

Hoping to watch the 1973 Romero film The Amusement Park tonight. I guess it is a movie that was thought to be lost but was found and restored?

I don't know but I hear Romero and I am in.

I’ve heard about this one. I’m going to check it out.

I am not sure what I think about this. Initially I would say this movie was depressing. Camera work was pretty cool in my opinion. I did go to IMBD and looked up to see when Logan's Run was made. In my mind The Amusement Park led into Logan's Run. 

Amusement Park 1973, Logan's Run 1976. Hmmmmmm

Yeah, it was not scary at all.

We watched C3 the first night it was out and I was disappointed. You always need to suspend some sense of reality when watching this series, but at least with C1, some of the stuff that happened was believable and scary  This one, there just was too much Ed and Lorraine acting like action heroes. I seriously doubt Ed actually tried to kill Lorraine with a sledge hammer or Lorraine was pulled over a cliff in the middle of the day by two hands. It just seemed so manufactured.

Then I got to thinking though, this was the first movie from the Conjuring Universe that my family did not see in the theater. I started to wonder if the lack of immersion in the movie atmosphere caused me to just not find the scenes scary. Several times during this movie we paused for bathroom or beer breaks and I think those breaks, sort of ruined it. I have to wonder if Quiet Place 2 was on HBO Max and we saw it there, if my family would have had the same experience. We loved it in the theater and there were several jump scares that took me out of my seat--whereas I didn't even flinch in C3 at the supposed jump scare moments.

I also watched it at home. Seems as though I am the outlier who enjoyed it. There were a few scares in there that I absolutely think would have had you jumping in the theater. Sadly those scares were cheats as they would have cranked the volume to get you to jump. I really do not like that in a movie. I really did enjoy the film. I find their relationship to be the center of the film and I find myself jealous of it.
