Just watched Bad Ben 3, Badder Ben, stop going on about Bad Ben you boring bastard, alright I will after this post, and it's clear that he's doing it for the fans and his cult following, playing it for laughs.

He said "Are you shittin' me?" 48 times but it did have a decent actor in it for once, Jacquie Baker.

New page? Are you shittin' me?

The below isn't outright horror but it has that kinda eerie, woozy atmosphere of the genre.

Border:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5501104/

A female customs officer with the capability to smell fear becomes intrigued by an odd fellow whilst her every day work leads her down a dark path. Its a highly original film, allowed to breathe by the director and cinematographer. Eva Melander's performance is extraordinary, completely morphed by prosthetics and carry an Ungodly weight  on her shoulders.

Don't watch a trailer, don't read any reviews. Its fucking brilliant.

This was really really good! Definitely not a horror film by any means but I can see why you might put it in this thread. It is Very Scandinavian in certain respects but quite refreshing and intriguing and touching.

Intriguing looking film on its way next month called The Hole in the Ground. Den of Geek writes:
Quote
Sundance hit which sees a young mother newly located to a remote house in Ireland close to a forest with a MASSIVE HOLE IN THE GROUND start to suspect that her son has been replaced by a changeling child. It’s the first feature from Lee Cronin it’s eerie and suspenseful with a wtf hole-related ending that will keep you guessing. It's being touted as the new 'Hereditary' but, spoilers, it's really not.
As someone who loves weird phenomena, it definitely appeals. Has a pretty good score on Rotten Tomatoes too.

There’s one big q that doesn’t get a’d in this film but I can’t do spoiler text on my phone.

It's totally slipped my mind - an old cosmic horror story about a man living in a house in Ireland (I think) with his sister and a hole in the ground and the things inside sending him into a unbelievably psychedelic bit of time travel. It's an old story.

Presumably he sold it... I assume the ring that got caught wasn't the only one operational.

S'pose. Could've done with at least one unambiguous happy ending.

But she's got a nice little troll baby to raise! That seemed happy to me.

Mm yes, Border was excellent, I'd say it just about qualifies as horror in some senses. Definitely atmospheric, strange, with some really horrifying moments. Not a cheery film for a Saturday night but I thought it was excellent.

That will probably grow up to aid pedlos in the fight against the humans. Swedes!

A little behind the times, just watched Ghost Ship (2002) free on Prime. It doesn't live up to the excellent opening sequence, but there are some effective moments in between the longueurs and occasionally flat acting, and a fairly decent climax. I guessed which character was going to be the subject of the twist though (I usually don't). 7 barnacles out of 10.

I thought it was mostly dreck, but agreed that the opening scene is utterly incredible.

I remember watching that movie Ghost Ship,
After it was over I threw the tape onto the tip.
For it was not very good and mostly dreck,
Well, except for the opening up on the deck.

Watched a new Netflix thing called Await Further Instructions. An odd film, starts off like an own brand Black Mirror with a really shit actress. A load of shit actors family comes together for Christmas and then realises they're all trapped in the house together and can't get out. TV starts displaying 'sinister' messages and David Bradley is a racist grandad. So far, so boring. Then, at the end, it does something unexpected but not in a particularly fun way.

The Guest was astonishingly fun -  full of holes, but still really enjoyable. Stressed me out no end - which was its job, of course.
Has Wingard made a good film besides this and You're Next? Seems like he's been involved with a lot of questionable stuff...

I went into that blind and at one point thought it was a sly Terminator reboot.

I saw "Hole In The Ground" last night.

It lasted one hour and 30 minutes or so and was set in Ireland. That's about what I can remember.
