I'm just gonna go ahead and start posting again from today, then at the end of the year I'll do a massive post with everything I've seen!!
Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon  - First Watch - 7.5/10
I loved that this film paid homage to some of the great slashers of the 80's. It didn't feel like a horror comedy, it felt alightly like satire but more than an appreciation of them, and that is part of the reason I enjoyed it so much. I thought it was clever, original and entertaining enough to keep me totally interested for the duration. Now I find myself wanting to watch it again, which is when I know I've really loved a film.
I'd recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it, and I'm annoyed at myself that I waited so long to see it. I feel like I should do a marathon: F13, NOES, Halloween then this anyone up for a movie night?
The Haunting  - First Watch - 5/10
I saw this on the same day as Behind The Mask and I didn't enjoy it nearly as much. I'm trying to watch some classics along with newer films so I'm doing double bills that don't really fit together lol.
This was okay. I liked the setting and the acting was good, but it just didn't build enough tension for me. I really enjoy slow-paced films but this just felt like it was stalled rather than slow-paced. I wouldn't bother watching it again, it just didn't do enough for me. I did enjoy the ending though, but it wasn't good enough to light up the rest of the film. I generally like older horror but this was just a bit meh.
