    I'm a big fan of scary/haunted house movies, and I often find the house (or place) more creepy than the ghosts or any other strange creatures.
    It's all about suggestion and possibilities - the terror that's lurking in the shadows, paintings, mirrors.
    Rose Red, with its changing passages and optical illusions is still one of my favourites.
    The ghosts/creatures in Crimson Peak took the suspense out of it, and it didn't make much sense either, especially in the grand scheme of things. Because, well, no-one actually cared about it.

    What Lies Beneath. I hadn't seen it in a few years. Funny the first time I saw it I really didn't like it but I enjoyed it this time.

    Girl On The Train - not a bad film but was kind of hoping it would have been better.

    I, Daniel Blake - Astonishing film, hits you like a punch in the guts. One of the most thought-provoking films I've seen in many years, a true work of art. The praise given to this film by many critics is totally deserved.

    Not as funny as I remembered but a nice fluff film all the same and strange to see Stephanie Beacham around the same time she was playing Sable on DYNASTY. Here she plays a character I guess based on Jackie Collins.

    Alexis, I loved Troop Beverly Hills, it was my favorite movie growing up! :)

    The last film I watched was "Come the Morning" from 1993 with Susan Howard.
    It was actually better than I thought it would be. :)

    "Deadly Bet" (2992) with Charlene. It had too much kickboxing in it for my taste.

    Concluding my Damien Thorn trilogy rewatch with...

    The Final Conflict




    I don't think I can bring myself to watch Omen IV: The Awakening for a second time.

    Elle - Not sure whether I liked this film or not. It had some great elements within it, especially the performance of Isabelle Huppert, but I think its 2 hour running length was to short too fully explore some of the characters' motivation for things they did in this multi-layered film.

    Was in the mood for something a bit different so watched this first:

    Eddie the Eagle

    It was FANTASTIC :)

    [​IMG]

    Followed by this - a complete change of mood - bloody brilliant but so awful!!! Priklopil was the lowest form of humanity if you could even call him a human!

    Cocoon



    It's at least a couple of decades since I last watched it. Probably longer. It looks great in HD and, apart from a couple of montages set to a very Eighties soundtrack, it hasn't dated much.

    I wonder what happened to Steve Guttenberg. I used to have quite a crush on him, and last night reminded me why.

    The English Patient



    Last time I watched it was at the cinema early in 1997. Scary to think two decades have since passed.
