Weekly Roundup: July 6 – 12

bloody_mess_calendar_print I played several games of Netflix Roulette this week. All-in-all, I ended up watching four films:

  • Alyce Kills (2011)
  • Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (2014)
  • Here Comes the Devil (2012)
  • The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014)

Apart from one (really big) miss, most of the films weren’t too bad… therefore, I’ll say it was a good week:

  • Worth Seeking Out (i.e. Worth Paying For): unfortunately, nothing really broke through to this level, though a couple were close.
  • Worth Watching via Free Streaming: Here Comes the Devil (2012), and The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014)
  • Worth Watching on an International Flight or While Doing Work: Alyce Kills (2011)
  • Worth Avoiding and Doing Something Better with Your Time: Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (2014)

Three of the movies I watched this week made it onto my cumulative top-ten list… which, is pretty exciting. It’s starting to come together nicely… though, I still wouldn’t watch the last one the list (Donner Pass)… give it a couple more weeks and it should be pretty strong:

  1. Housebound
  2. Starry Eyes
  3. The House at the End of Time
  4. Here Comes the Devil
  5. The Taking of Deborah Logan
  6. The Canal
  7. Neverlake
  8. Alyce Kills
  9. Bad Milo!
  10. Donner Pass

Next week should be a full week… baring any unscheduled events I should have at least five full posts (possibly six, depending on how motivated I am on Tuesday). The only thing I have planned for definite is that I’ll be seeing The Gallows tomorrow night with a friend, so expect a full write up on Tuesday. I’m trying not to go into it with any preconceived notions… but, since I’m dreading it, I guess I’m failing at my goal. Also, I’m trying to figure out which classic horror movies to revisit. I had a lot of fun with the holy trinity of slasher films (I’m still thinking I’ll do Psycho) but it’s time to move on. At first, I was considering the Evil Dead series, but then thought that it would be better to save them for right before the premier of the new series… so, I’m at a lost… I could always just flip through my DVD binders, but I’m also open to suggestions. See you tomorrow! me
