So far today on Lazy-as-Fuck Sunday I’ve watched The Conjuring 1, The Conjuring 2, Annabelle, Stephanie, and Oculus. Tried to watch The Babadook but only lasted 20 minutes and had to shut that shit off. Probably give Radius a shot next. Most stuff has been decent but horror movies just aren’t connecting with me. I need a good Lovecraftian decent in to madness slow burn or something.
Best Lovecraftian movie ive seen in years is The Void . It is on Netflix.

Man this gave me a great idea. They discuss why monstervision and the like is no longer a thing. joe bob thinks Ad time is too important to have hosts, etc.

But with mst3k revival. I wonder if Monstervision could flourish on netflix, or amazon video? Have movies that are hosted by someone. have the host present the show, give some info on it. cut to movie. cut back to host, have them making comments, etc. back to movie. add 30min to an hour of host commentary and interaction.

Imagine once a week, netflix adding a Monstervision feature presentation, with Joe Bob presenting some horror movie from Netflix's streaming library.

Caliane Caliane Joe Bob just hosted a 24 hour marathon on Shudder a month or two ago. They put it all up as a series so you can watch it any time. Some good flicks too. Shudder is like 4.99 a month and you can subscribe and watch through Amazon if you want. Worth checking out for a month if you like him.

The thing that struck me the most when watching Radius was that I really, really wished that they hadn't told me what was going on in the description/trailer for the movie. I know they didn't spend all that long before telling you anyway, but it could have been a lot better if you didn't know and they spent more time with the guy figuring it out. I was also pretty let down by the ending too, as mentioned by others. And the reason for it happening in the first place...kinda meh to me. Good premise, unless you've read the X-Men comic, but just not executed as well as I would have liked. Not terrible either, but not enough for me to recommend it to others.

If you know nothing about Radius going into it, is worth a watch?

It has some cool moments and ideas, but it suffers from poor direction and camera-work. I'd probably give it a 6 or 7, but I'm not a big horror fan.

Shit, I completely forgot about that wicker man scene and thought you were just trying to make a joke about the furry/attention whore thread. Sorry homie.

No punching bears, unfortunately. It doesn't try to be camp at all, just bleak and graphic.
