  1. I’ve never been interested in this franchise. Although, why didn’t you talk about Blair Witch 2?

  2. I SO WANNA HANG OUT WITH YOU GUYS! I WISH I WAS BACK IN CHICAGO!

  3. You guys should watch the Film Theorists analysis of the original — there is a lot of evidence in the marketing that hints that there was only one death in the film, and it was a murder (not supernatural)!

  4. I think what makes the original; movie a phenomenon is what Malcolm says: It was the first big theatrical “found footage” film.

    So watching it after the initial release all the hype and magic is gone…you know it’s fake, you know it’s scripted, you aren’t wondering if this is -something real- whether supernatural or not.

  5. So, Er, the 2016 film isnt our yet is if? Did you just tell everyone you pirated this?

  6. Haven’t seen the new one yet, but I love the original, it really understands what you don’t see is oftentimes scarier than anything they could show you on screen. I remember I watched it with my girlfriend one night years ago, and we had this plan of exploring the nearby park afterwards, which was around 400 acres of forest. Needless to say, we chickened out.

  7. To get right to the point, this is a list of movies I want you to cover:

    Highlander.

    John Carpenter’s The Thing

    Monty Python and the Holy Grail

    The Three Flavors Cornetto Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy, (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, World’s End)

    Escape from New York

    UHF

  8. The first movie is kinda stuck with me. I wasn’t old enough at the time nor did I have access to TV or Internet where I lived to ever hear of the marketing. Heck the movie theater in my town didn’t show it because it only had 1 screen and tried to keep to family pictures so they could have a general audience at all times.
    But my mom traveled for her job, and of course she heard of it. Being the delightful mom she was brought it home when it was as a rental tape and hid the box from my view. She came in the house (which to note was in the middle of a secluded forest) and said she found it on the ground outside. She popped it in and convinced me that every single frame of that movie happened in the deep parts of the forest I lived in. I was terrified for months, let me tell you.

    The movie isn’t terrifying at all, but that itching feeling that it was real is where the true magic comes in.

  9. I really like listening to your thoughts, but please lose the background music. It is really distracting.

  10. The original: the house at the end belonged to a serial killer of children, and the way the guy was standing in the corner is a reference to that.

    The only reason I know it is, due to a time loop (or walking past a room where somebody else was watching the end of the movie right before I borrowed it from them), I saw that scene before watching the movie.

    I was not a fan of it either.

    There’s a 2016 version?!? Remind me to miss that sometime.
