Icy Watches Horror To Manage Her Anxiety


Recommended Posts

Soooo... priests were too “enlightened” to take care of a demonic presence, but the Satanic Panic was in its heyday.

Huh.

I was in the running to write Ghost Dimension. i was the director's first pic, but the studio wanted the guys who ended up doing it. It was a nightmare production so I lucked out. The director of PA4

Just read the wiki entry for A Serbian Film, and that's a big hard nope. I can't even figure out which part Shockey noped out at, because it's all so nope-worthy. I also wiki'ed Henry... that one's a

Come back and we'll go eat some TCM BBQ. And watch Hamilton with captions on.

The Satanic Panic was mostly the result of Jack Chick, who absolutely hated Catholics. So there wasn’t as much crossover as you would think. 
 

Im aware of Catholic parishes hosting D&D nights during that time.

Knives flying and priests refusing an exorcism? Man that is crazy Fozzie!  My Mom said when she was a teen, she lived in a haunted house in Pasadena. The house had a couple that died in it.  My mom said she saw the woman a couple times in apparition form.  Her mom said she saw the man's ghost.

Honestly some of the most disturbing footage I've seen is on Paranormal Caught on Camera on the Discovery+ app. There are quite a few clips they show that I cannot fathom to explain in pragmatic terms. I'm skeptical of the paranormal and even more doubtful of the spiritual realm. But some of these clips.. really have me questioning my beliefs..

The clip of the little girl in Russia levitating in the woods..

I'm the opposite, the caught on camera stuff I never buy because I know how easy it is to fake. I'm way more bothered by things like Brando's post-- somebody I know, who isn't prone to being ridiculous or making shit up, speaking their truth.

Nocturne. Isn't Blumhouse supposed to be horror? This was Black Swan with pianos.

House on Haunted Hill (1999). Okay, that is not a HOUSE. It is an ABANDONED ASYLUM. HUGE difference. And with a façade like that and built into a cliff... how were these people just popping down into the basement and then just popping up into the attic? But this movie was all kinds of fun.  And predicted influencers.

I freaking love House on Haunted Hill. It is peak 90s/early 2000s horror and I just love every absurd minute of it. It's full of nonsense and unbelivable things--but also has really great legit scares. When the chick sees the ghosts on her video camera, but not in the room, and the turn and look at her-- one of my favorite creep-out moments ever.

That happened to me once kind of! I was taking pictures of the Ursuline Convent in NOLA, and there were these lights that I could see zooming around on the camera, but I couldn't see them just with my eyes.  Nothing particularly scary, but kind of cool.

House on Haunted Hill was clearly made for the sheer enjoyment of it, and I dig that.

Ring 0 : Birthday. I read the book ages ago, so I can tell you they followed the book weirdly closely except for the ending.

You Die. Italian Pulse. 

Deadwax. I started this because I didn’t want to stay up hella late, so 20 minute episodes seemed like a great idea until I binged six of them. I am learning a LOT about vinyl.

Yeah, I agree.  When you know the person, and you know they don't make up stuff, and tell you in a serious manner they saw something, I find it a hell of a lot more credible (and sometimes more scary) than a re-enactment you see on Travel Channel or a movie. 

Also, we need to resurrect that paranormal thread of yours from a while back!

I like the 90s version too.  It sort of kicked off a bunch of ghost story movies around the same time, too.  Rose Red, and Ghost Ship come to mind.  But I also still have special love for the original with Vincent Price, too.

Typically I can dismiss or I search and read about a debunk of the videos like the Cork Ireland BS video that was featured. Obvious the students were playing up the October Festival they were hosting. However there is a good amount of vids on the show I simply cannot fathom in pragmatic terms. Maybe I am a fool? But there seems to be some element of unexplained phenomenon...

American Mary. Which is a Canadian movie. And yes, look at me dipping into body horror just 17 days before surgery.  And I enjoyed it! (although I skipped the rape scene.) I figure, what the hell, for some reason the first episode of Lost is on right before I get on a plane and I inevitably watch it through. Might as well do the same here.

The end of Deadwax - part seven reminded me of the note on the back of Procul Harum’s first album, “to be listened to in the spirit in which it was made” aka “this is stoner music, my bros.” That is one psychedelic music experience. Interesting ending although a little confusing in parts.

Kairo. Japanese Pulse. Not my first time through this one. It’s theoretically scary. In the right theater setting, it would be deeply chilling. But knowing what to expect... the scares don’t quite land.

A Haunting in Connecticut. The teenage boy carried the whole movie. The dad looks like Tucker Carlson.

Know Fear. I watched the whole thing even though it’s not great.

A Haunting in Connecticut: Ghosts of Georgia which could just as easily have been called A Haunting in Georgia. Has one of the best depictions of ghost dreams I’ve ever seen.

Caveat. I watched it because I saw a review that said it was like “if David Lynch had made Saw” and ehhhhh... that made me expect a lot of quirky characters going in, and there were zero quirky characters, just one quirky contraption that was more Saw than Lynch, and one quirky doll that they never explain. There’s a lot about this movie that goes by completely unexplained.

Otherwise, it’s basically an Irish ballad about familial madness and murder made into a movie. Not a bad watch, but not as good as that one review gassed it up to be.
