I'm into Mark Duplass, but I think I'm the only person who didn't like Creep. Patrick Brice's character "Aaron" was an idiot. His idiocy ruined it for me. I'm not usually a why-the-fuck-did-he-do-that-dumb-shit type of guy, but why the fuck did he do that dumb shit?

I think there's a Creep 2 on deck. I'd stab a baby in the eye to get Bruce McDonald got off his ass and got around to finishing Pontypool 2 or Pontypool Changes or whatever the heck he's going to call it. I'm like Pavlov's dog over here. Very impatient on this one.

Last one for now. I'm not particularly into using torture as a vehicle for horror, but I am charmed by this short's deviancy.

Had to steel myself from watching the entire trailer.

Sam and Lee Boxleitner, sons of Bruce Boxleitner obvs, make horror movies. I liked this one better than I did their debut, Downstairs.

Hereditary will be the closest thing to The Exorcist in 2018, I hope I can see it before some cellphone pawing nerd tells me about it and ruins it.

I can't think of a last great possession movie. The Conjuring had some creepy scenes, but overall it was weak. Plus, I laughed when Lili Taylor's character got got. Love her, but her portrayal of a woman possessed was flat. The Taking Of Deborah Logan: meh. The Possession Of David O'Reilly was ambitious in covering a lot of ground, but light on terror. Really looking forward to Heriditary

The useage of the vibrating notification sound on his cell was inspired. Listening on headphones it creates a skittish-ASMR response. Jumpy.

I've previously posted about the SCP Foundation on Facebook, but if one is unfamiliar and interested in killing a few hours I highly suggest exploring it. It's a wiki that details the exploits of the SCP Foundation which is a fictional organization responsible for protecting the world against supernatural entities, organizations, places, events, thoughts, and objects. Anyone can contribute. It's really quite fascintaing. The short stories are disguised as reports about the objects; how they were secured, their damage potential, etc. I recommend starting with the first five series. You can jump in anywhere as it's not linear. It's all documentation. SCP-173 was my intro, and its a hoot. SCP-231 is superdark and could be triggering (seriously) to certain people. Most of the info is redacted which leads your mind to go to some pretty disturbing places. All in all the wiki contains some fantastic writers with fertile and creepy imaginations.

Same here on all of the above, although I'll throw in a vote for The Blackcoat's Daughter as an impressively subtle yet dread-filled modern possession flick.

The Exorcist television show has some interesting depictions of demonic possession. Trailers make the show look super dumb, but two seasons in, it's not all that bad. Slow at times, but watchable.

I just watched Blackcoat's Daughter last night. Perfect description. I enjoyed it, even if I could predict a lot of it.

I remember liking Insidious as well as The Conjuring though.

The Conjuring had some great moments, but the last third felt heavy-handed to my lapsed-Catholic sensibilities -- although I suppose it's hard to shoot a believable exorcism scene anymore; the world is too cynical and The Exorcist already perfected too many of the moves. I remember being genuinely unsettled throughout Insidious, though. There's some really smart use of atmosphere and sound amid the jump scares. I love the opening titles, too.

I am a little slow, so it took me until about 3/4 of the way through Insidious before I realized it was actually a comedy.

Insidious was superb up until the 3rd act. That said, it made me fall in love with horror movies all over again, particularly the haunted house subgenre. Gushed about it in C/NC. The opening titles are perfect. As soon as they started I knew the movie was going to be pretty great (also way into the opening titles to Drag Me To Hell).

It's that third act, man. The denouement. Just like with Pontypool. In spite of it I adore what comes before. Great scares. Creepy mood. Solid haunted house flick. Not crazy about the sequels.
