    I agree that neither are bad, but neither knocked my socks off. Now I know it’s fashionable to poo-poo on the first SIN CITY, but I still think that movie is great, especially as a translation of Frank Miller’a comic. The first RED is so much fun, plain and simple.

    I might need to revisit RED 2. It’s been a while.

    I just reviewed his film history and didn't realize how many bad movies he has been in.

    It's a turd. I would rather be in the bathroom while this is playing.

    2 out of 5 just for some interesting scenes but overall a huge waste of time.
    It bums me out that this what Willis is up to these days. I know he’s been in the game forever and probably doesn’t need to work, but I really miss Willis when he’s fully engaged. He’s truly a lot better actor than people give him credit for.

    Yeah, they are no longer streaming part one, or the FRIGHT NIGHT doc that they used to have. Strange that they kept part tow, but I'd better finish watching it before that vanishes, too.

    Aside from OLDBOY, which I'm due to rewatch, I haven't seen any of these. Thanks for the recs...I'll add these to the watchlist.

    I watched LEVIATHAN last night. Kind of. I was really excited to watch it, then I noticed that it was PART TWO...and, of course, they are no longer streaming part one. No one is. So I started to watch it, and then my nightly four hours of sleep came back to haunt me, with a vengeance, and I was struck my such overwhelming tiredness that I could barely get up to go to bed. Made it about 45 minutes, but did like what I saw. I'll try to get back to it later in the week. Now that I'm back to my pre-Covid full-time hours at work, I'll probably end up keeping Shudder for another month, so I can work my way through your suggestions. I'm enjoying going out into the sunroom at night and watching a Horror movie with the windows open and the crickets chirping and the owls hooting....Very peaceful and relaxing, and my wife gets to watch her chick movies in peace, lol.
    I wonder why they stopped streaming Part One of LEVIATHAN? They had it previously, because I worked my way through both parts and combined it's a pretty exhaustive look at the first two Hellraiser movies. Quite a bummer, actually.

    I hope you wind up enjoying a couple of the suggestions. Let me know your thoughts, even if you hate them!

    I also am due for an OLDBOY rewatch. I'm waiting for the next Arrow UK sale so I can pick up their Blu-ray boxset of OLDBOY, SYMPATHY OF MR. VENGEANCE, and LADY VENGEANCE.

    I still need to watch TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID. I've heard it's fantastic.
    That opening to TERRIFIED might be one of the best I've seen in recent years.
    TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID feels like the distant cousin of Del Toro's earlier films (CRONOS, DEVIL'S BACKBONE). If you liked those, then I think you'll find quite a bit to enjoy in TIGERS.

    Here's my list of Shudder picks. I focused on originals/exclusives along with some other favorites. I also threw in a trio of go-to Asian movies, just because I like them. You're mileage will probably vary, but maybe you'll find something you like.
    • TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID--Mexican drama with supernatural elements about orphaned children and they world they live in and try to escape.
    • TERRIFIED--Supernatural forces begin affecting a neighborhood, setting a police detective on the course to try to figure it all out
    • DEAREST SISTER--Laotian movie about a young poor woman who moves to the city to take care of her blind cousin who has visions of the dead. Slow burn, yet effective. Heavier on drama than the horror elements.
    • BETTER WATCH OUT--A young boy's attempts to woo his babysitter goes awry when they become the victim of a home invasion
    • ONE CUT OF THE DEAD--A film crew is shooting a low budget zombie movie when real zombies arrive. Just stick with it, trust me. Most fun I've had in a long time.
    • SOUTHBOUND: An anthology of interconnected stories. With most anthologies not all hit, but the segment about a man taking a young woman to the hospital is a killer.
    • TRAIN TO BUSAN: A businessman takes his daughter on a train trip when they are beset by zombies. Best zombie movie in a LONG time. Full of humor, heart and suspense.
    • ABSENTIA: Mike Flanagan's debut film. Two sisters begin to unravel the mystery of the eldest sibling's spouses disappearance and how it's linked with a local tunnel. Low budget, but has big ideas.
    • WE ARE WHAT WE ARE: A reclusive family finds their life unraveling and their secrets threatening to be exposed during a torrential downpour.

    Asian Classics:
    • A TALE OF TWO SISTERS
    • NOROI: THE CURSE
    • OLDBOY
    Documentaries:
    • HORROR NOIRE: A look back at the connection between the horror genre and it's connection to the African-American community
    • HAUNTERS: ART OF THE SCARE: An interesting look into the Haunt subculture, along with some of the extreme Haunts that are gaining favor.
