Happy Friday the 13th!


Happy Friday the 13th! Just a little selfie from inside my new home office. What could go wrong?

Nice! I think I'll watch V/H/S Viral after work.

Actually I'm working until at least midnight so my 13th is already over. Have a good one!

Well, a door to an alternate universe might open, but I wouldn't worry about it unless your double has a dangerous wiener.

It's from a segment in one of the V/H/S anthology movies.

Stop dicking around Evil. Start sending out that free patch I won. Sheesh, why is it so difficult for me to get my free stuff.

Ouch.

There isn't exactly a lot of anthology horror going around these days, and I think the VHS series took a good shot at it. I liked them, mostly the first two.

HaHa! Thanks for the reminder, I wanted to do those this week.

That segment from V/H/S Viral is probably the most memorable of the series, it's from Nacho Vigalondo who directed Timecrimes, Colossal and the Christmas episode of Into the Dark (Pooka).

I was watching it and it just reminded me of having bad luck on Friday the 13th. Not the traditional "Jason" picture for Friday the 13th, but I thought bad luck was more appropriate since I ended up spending my day moving boxes.

Bad luck for sure.

Oh I agree they don't make a lot of anthology horror these days, but V/H/S (any of them) are just awful.

The handi-cam style is incredibly annoying/off putting as it reached peak saturation years before 2012, and they take themselves too seriously for the subject matter they are trying to pull off. I found Amateur Night especially stupid.

But heh, that's just my opinion on it.

If you want to see the segment, skip to the 00:26:00 (26 minute) mark.

I agree that they went way/way/way overboard with the shaky-cam stuff, but I think a lot of the stories were pretty interesting and pretty gory. I enjoyed all three movies and the two follow-up movies they have done since then that weren't under the V/H/S label.

Of course, the one I like best, is the one with the least amount of camera shaking going on. So, I guess that says something.

I really like the V/H/S films. Not every segment is amazing, but more of them are good than are not. Not sure if Evil is referring to "Southbound" which is a sort of follow up, but that one is awesome as well. I don't mind the found footage style, usually.

Yea, they did Southbound and another one that hasn't come out yet, Portals. They were created by Brad, from Bloody Disgusting.

I never got mine either, even though I reminded him I wanted it to wear at PAX. Epic Fail. Maybe I will get it in time for NEXT PAX unless he's pulling a Half Life 3?

I think I'm waiting on one, too. Better late than never, I suppose!
