The Mist, Friday the 13th Part III, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, Ouija and It Follows

October Horror Movie Challenge Day 8

The Mist (2007)

Why I Watched:
Based on a Novel Theme Night

What I Learned:
  • First scene - painting The Gunslinger. Love the tie in with King's other works. 
  • Neighbors who don't even like each other, helping each other. Much like my own experience with bad storms
  • Stephen King films always get the best casts.
  • The Walking Dead's Carol and Andrea are in this. I really dislike them both.
  • Oh, right, and Dale is in this too. I liked him.
  • You say tentacles and people think you're crazy
  • Religious people are crazy, scary and/or mean in every Stephen King work I've ever read/seen. 
  • You have people barricading windows. You have people figuring out a plan. And then you've got that one woman with her bible
  • Gah. Rope burn is a bitch.
  • Best character in the whole movie - The old lady. Throwing peas, guilting people into being brave, she's the whole package.
  • William Sadler screams a lot in this movie
  • That last scene is to teach us to never lose faith. Or it's Stephen King getting one last emotional kick in.


Friday the 13th Part III (1988)

Why I Watched:

What I Learned:
  • All of these movies show the last scenes of the previous movie. Made sense before VHS. Not so much now.
  • Cop are coming. Eat ALL THE DRUGS! 
  • Rabbit roadkill in 3D. Ick.
  • 3D, no counselors/campers/camp and the debut of the mask. All you really need to know.
  • What is with people getting into the shower before they turn it on. That's how you get burnt or freeze your tits off. 
  • I don't care about these characters at all. Like, why aren't they all dead already? Jason needs to step up his game.
  • These girls and fleeing in a boat. Jason grew up at the bottom of a lake. That's like the least safe place for you.

Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984)

Why I Watched:

What I Learned:
  • That's different. Showing a part from 2 instead of 3 as the first scene. 
  • Right. The Corey Feldman and Crispin Glover one. I remember loving it.
  • Sleep . . . in a room . . . with a boy?!?! GASP
  • Um, girls do actually notice when you steal their panties post sex. Like, where the hell else could they have gone?
  • The only way to get to Jason is to screw with his mind. Tommy Jarvis knows. 
  • Jason's nails. Gag.

Ouija (2014)

What I Learned:
  • This movie makes no sense. Since when do Ouija boards lead to overflowing tubs and sewn together lips?


It Follows (2014)

What I Learned:
  • Running in heels is always serious business. You don't run in heels unless you NEED to run in heels.
  • Slow, but creepy. It sort of works.
