This Halloween's SCARY MOVIE PICKS
« on: October 13, 2014, 01:02:14 pm »
I've been hitting the movies heavy, lots of scary ones in 2013-2014. I can't remember a year with more releases. Most are on DVD or rent now, so if you need that bit of fright in you cool crisp October air, it might be time for a bowl of popcorn and turn down the lights.

My pick for No.1 is THE CONJURING which is a well done, well acted and beautifully filmed modern masterpiece. Maybe that is a bit strong, but compared to almost anything in years, this out weighs all competition.

Simple plot, with no spoilers: it is a haunted house movie, based on the records of actual paranormal investigators who I have listened to over the years on shows like Coasttocoastam with George Noory and previously Art Bell. A very believable couple to hear recollect their experiences.

This haunting takes place in a house with a husband, wife and four daughters - not exactly their dream home and the house needs more that TLC as it has been all but abandoned for a long long time.

I'll leave it at that except to say it is a part of films that start as Insidious parts 1&2 and continue with the recent release of Annabelle. The Insidious movies (interestingly starring the actors playing paranormal couple, but just being regular parents with several kids) but Insidious 2 is a pretty good film on its own. I hear terrible things about Annebelle, it gets a 23 on Rotten Tomatoes splat meter.

But as a stand alone movie, I give "The Conjuring" my choice for this Halloween.

i wish scary movies got to me.  they just don't, and it takes some of the fun out of watching them.  The Exorcist was probably the last one that scared me.  maybe the first Saw just a bit.  i do like them. 
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.
