31 Days of Horror – October 28

juneJune (2015)

IMDB

After some non-horror yesterday, I eased back in with June since I do like to see little telekinetic or possessed girls fuck shit up. Not all bad, though nothing spectacular either. The parents are little more than cardboard cutouts of stereotypical 30something sheep, but the little girl does have some good personality building. The acting is good, it just could have used more than utilitarian writing. Something a little more intelligent would have taken this out of the cookie cutter. The effects are done well though underused. A gentle little creeper.

The 31 Days of Halloween ‘Challenge’ is where you take in one or more horror films per day during the month of October. Aside from networks airing more horror for the month, many forums and social networking sites do the same. See what others are watching on The Mortuary.

While this film has 87 per cent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and from the good things the person who lent it to me had to say, I’m obviously not part of this collective appreciation. Then again, I’m pretty used to not being part of much so that fits. Sure, this is a beautifully shot film and acted very well. I just felt stuck in the longest Radiohead video ever. Perhaps, it has no end. Someday I will revisit this to be sure. I see it had been rebranded from Horror to Thriller, and I think it should be rebranded from there as Art Film if that’s a genre.

I’d set this nearby to watch soon, then read a post about people pushing to have the studio release fabled cut scenes so had to get to it. Blatty had requested the material from the vaults before, and according to Wikipedia it didn’t exist so I wonder if there are intact scenes to be had. As it did when I watched it, this makes me want to watch Heretic again. Perhaps one of the few series that is fun to watch backward.

Ghost Hunt (2006)

IMDB

As there is a Dead Cells episode still forthcoming, I rewatched the last three episodes of this. Maybe not super action packed but I like the character building and to see the end (for the third time) is always fun.
