The Dark Power (1985) — Slightly more watchable than Alien Outlaw from the same director, this one didn't have as many dull moments at least and the ladies were nice to look at. Still not great yet has more B-movie qualities as the native American undead were laughable. Lash LaRue was a lot of fun again and his whip fight scene at the end made me chuckle. **/***** (Blu-ray)

Anatomia Extinction (1995)

Although it isn't among my favorite Yoshihiro Nishimura films (due to its repetitiveness), the FX work and Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989) influence is absolutely appreciated.

Megan Is Missing (2011)

Even before TikTok resurrected it, I always felt Director/Writer Michael Goi's film was mean-spirited for seemingly zero-reason.

After re-watching it again for the month of October, my feelings on the film haven't changed.

Mister Creep (2022)

While the design of of Mister Creep himself is solid, this low-budget Found Footage film crams way too many ideas in 66-minutes, with none of them fully fleshed out.

The Mothman Tapes (2022)

Fairly flat Found Footage film that is made worse by incredibly questionable CGI.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

On Halloween we wanted to watch something scary and creepy, but not gory or too jump-scary.

Starz

When their plane crashes on a remote snow-covered mountain, Jane (Sophie Turner) and Paul (Corey Hawkins) have to fight for their lives as the only remaining survivors. Together they embark on a harrowing journey out of the wilderness.

It got bad reviews but I liked it and it picked up when Hawkins came on the screen.

Get the kleenex box ready though.

The Last Voyage of The Demeter
Corey Hawkins. Directed by Andre Ovredal. 2023
Based on a single chapter, the Captain's Log, from Bram Stoker's classic 1897 novel "Dracula," the story is set aboard the Russian schooner, Demeter, which was chartered to carry private cargo—twenty-four unmarked wooden crates—from Carpathia to London. The film details the strange events that befell the doomed crew as they attempt to survive the ocean voyage, stalked each night by a terrifying presence on board the ship.

I saw this this in the theater a few months back, -well, sort of saw it. About 20 minutes in I fell into a coma, and only woke for the last five minutes. I don't blame the film, -I've yet to see a film that could rouse me to rapt attention once I've gotten drowsy. So I've been waiting for an opportunity to see it again for the first time.

It's quite a good little "Monster Movie" for the first hour. It starts to lumber a bit in the second act, though it picks up again at the climax. It really could have been a little tighter. The film's cinematography is very dark, and as is often the case, it looks better on my home system than it did in the theater.

I actually saw "Double Indemnity" first as a TV-Movie remake back in 1973. Richard Crenna was in MacMurray's role, Lee J. Cobb was his friend/fellow insurance investigator he confessed to, and Samantha Eggar was the dame he did it for. The script was adapted by Steven Bocho before he hit it big with "Hill Street Blues".

I agree about the actors, but I haven't seen My Three Sons in so long, it wasn't really a sticking point, for me.

The story is the big draw, however.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Warners 4K
Daniel Radcliffe. Directed by Alfonso Cuaron. 2004
Harry and his friends Ron and Hermione return for their third year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where the teenagers are forced to face their darkest fears as they confront a dangerous escaped prisoner and the equally foreboding Dementors, who are sent there to protect them.

I remember when "Azkaban" opened in 2004, -when Imax was less common thing, -I was thrilled to hear that the movie was going to be shown at the St. Louis Planetarium on a legit Imax screen. I paid a little more, but it seemed worth it for the experience. I showed up an hour-and-a-half early on a Monday night (traditionally a "dead night" for theaters) only to find a crowd that showed up an hour-and-a-half before me. So, I didn't get an optimal seat, but the real problem was it was shown on the Planetarium's domed ceiling screen. As a result, the film was slightly curved, and I had to crane my head back to watch the film for two-and-a-half hours. It was a miserable experience, -a true pain in the neck, -and it ruined the film for me.

I have, of course, watched it a time or two since, and it's a solid entry that flows a little more naturally and feels less "Spielberg Light" than the Chris Columbus films.

I enjoyed Warner's 4K presentation of the film, which seemed more natural and less digitally sharpened. The HDR actually desaturates the colors a bit and makes everything more filmic to my eye, and the frequent dusk and night scenes are appropriately darkened and authentic. Much of it has an October feel.

My only gripe is the design of the werewolf, which just wasn't very impressive.

Brain Smasher... A Love Story (1993) — You know, not a bad movie. Andrew Dice Clay was alright though just a toned down version of his stand-up but he and Teri Hatcher had their moments. And while not all of the humor worked, enough did that made me chuckle a few times. Also a plus, we get to see Hatcher wearing a stripper outfit for the third act... ***/***** (Blu-ray)

Highlander Lion's Gate 4K
Christopher Lambert. Directed by Russell Mulcahy. 1986
Connor MacLeod is one of a waning few survivors of a clan of immortals. They have been fighting each other for centuries in the quest to be the last one standing.

In my opinion, "Highlander" gets a lot better once Sean Connery shows up, and, funny enough, -at least to my eyes, -the picture quality of the 4K disc improves greatly after that point in the film.
