The lesser known 1988 Corey Haim creature feature loosely based on the Dean Koontz novel of the same name. The first sequel staring The Beastmaster is a bit of a chore to get through. Plus I’m pretty sure that Roger Corman just dusted off the creature suit from The Terror Within and tried to pass it off as an OXCOM. 😏 #watchers#deankoontz#coreyhaim#michaelironside#beastmaster#rogercorman#biologicalwarfare#goldenretriever#oxcom##80s#horror#creaturefeature#movie#horrorfan#cinephile#collector
How to make great horror films 👹 - I think the biggest fail of wannabe horror filmmakers is to focus on the scares only. When there is absolutely no plot at all. Horror films are films after all and having an inteligent script will allow you to... - Generate empathy. This is what makes horror compelling. It is true for every genre, but especially in this one, which is essentially about people and bad shit happening to them. 😭 - Unless you are going for a spin on a cliche, or it is used with purpose, avoid them. Try to innovate on the where, when and why of your story, people usually tend to focus only on the what (demon,monster,animal, etc - seen it all). 👺 - If you want the best advice on IG about every aspect of filmmaking follow me and become @filmcrazed 🔹🔹🔥 - #filmmaking#filmmakers#cinematographers#horror#horrorfilms#horrormovie#horrorfilm#suspense#filmcrazed#cinephile#cinematography#moviegenres
Gerald’s Game was one of the hardest movies for me to watch. It explored a lot of themes that were very uncomfortable and terrifying but underneath all of the horror I think there was a very wholesome message: you are strong enough to overcome anything you are afraid of. It made me feel very anxious and vulnerable watching it but in the end it was a very empowering movie. It’s not easy to make a movie like this that also has a meaningful message. I hope to read the book someday, I’m sure it’s excellent. 🌙 • #horror#horrormovies#horrorcollector#horrorcollection#movie#stephenking#bookstagram#cinephile
I typically don't get into period peices, but I did enjoy the way #thefavourite did their version of it. Now, although it's a period piece it remains relevant with woman in power, and doing everything they can to get it. However, more than that we have characters that are as conflicted as any human can be, and hides things that once revealed adds to the stakes at hand. I'm giving it a 9.0 out of 10.
Much appreciations on all the casting submissions videos. Powerful tools to capture these powerful performances from powerful performers. @arri @zeisscinematography on @oconnorsupport • Also be sure to watch @invisiblewarfilm starring coming to @AMCtheatres March 28-29th.

Glass is an underwhelming conclusion to M. Night Shyamalan’s comic book lore trilogy. Unbreakable, which started it all 19 years ago, was a taut thriller that deconstructed the superhero genre in a gritty and compelling way while 2017’s Split was surprisingly suspenseful and effective - a welcome return to form for Shyamalan who seemed to have lost his touch somewhere after Signs and was churning out increasingly laughable movies. In this third installment, three of Shyamalan's iconic characters with preternatural abilities David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Elijah Pryce or Mr Glass (Samuel L. Jackson) and Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) find themselves in a mental institution together where a psychiatrist (Sarah Paulson) tries to treat them for what she believes is the same strain of delusions. Obviously, a plan to escape is hatched. Even though Glass attempts to marry the elements of its predecessors, it didn’t hit the mark like they did. To me, the main problem is it lacks a sense of revelation. I mean so much has been done with the comic book movie/ superhero genre by now so the musings in Glass feel dated and less punchy. Also, there’s pacing issues - the build-up is too tedious for an ending/ pay-off that feeble. But James McAvoy, reprising his role from Split, continues to dazzle as Kevin Wendell Crumb, the guy suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder or “split personality”. This time, he gets to perform 20 different “alters”, some of whom are going through their own trajectories. I know it sounds exhausting but it’s quite exhilarating to watch! I feel sad for Shyamalan and the wasted opportunity, that is, Glass though - I had been rooting for him to stay on track after The Visit and Split! #glassmovie#jamesmcavoy#samuelljackson#brucewillis#mnightsyamalan#thriller#superhero#filmreview#moviereview#didicapsulereview#cinephile#sgig#igsg
Today's Oscar nominations were pretty ridiculous. A couple cool entries tho for sure. I've reviewed a few of them. But I'm gonna take it back to a recent Oscar darling that I've finally gotten the chance to see. ~ ~ ~ La La Land (2016) - 10/10 ~ ~ ~ Los Angeles; where the aspiring go to aspire some more. The odds of a dream coming to life is as strong as the dreamers ability to hold on; to stay afloat, and Mia, the aspiring actress, and Seb, the lowly jazz musician, can only hold on for so long. Damien Chazelle's La La Land takes your hand into its own, sings you a song, shows you a great time, and never let's you go. ~ ~ ~ SEB "And so, it's conflict, and It's compromised, and it's just... it's new every time. It's brand new every night. It's very, very exciting." *music halts* *applause* SEB CONT'D "And it's dying. It's dying, Mia. It's dying on the vine. And the world says "Let it die. It had it's time." ... Well, not on my watch." ~ ~ ~ Have you seen La La Land? What did you think? Have you seen any of Chazelle's other projects? 2018's "First Man", or 2014's "Whiplash"? Let me know below!
