Did anyone watch Ghost Stories?

I watched it the other day - thought it was really good.


#342

is this a tv show? could do with a good horror show. i dabbled in channel zero, that seemed okay.


#343

It was a film that came out a few months back:


#344

It’s more of a play really…


#345

ooo i will have a look at this


#346

It’s great. Leaves you thinking for some time afterwards.


#347

Paul Whitehouse is a totally unexpected MVP as well. He’s so good in it.


#348

Johnny Depp said he’s the best actor in the world, innit.

(I quite liked it)


#349

Yes he’s brilliant. The thing that I liked was that his character wasn’t a million miles off one of his fast show characters… pretty sure that was deliberate.

Good stuff! Been a while since I saw 28WL, but I remember really enjoying it - should give it another watch some time soon… Only other one I’ve seen here is Colossal which I posted about recently. I really enjoyed it and you’re right about how it wrong-foots you and becomes way more serious than you’re expecting… I thought Jason Sudeikis was excellent in this; he totally had me fooled with his nice guy shtick so much so that it really wasn’t until the 2nd time I watched it that I realized quite what a manipulative asshole he is…

Is Drag Me To Hell worth a watch? It’s been sat on my DVD shelf for ages, but I’ve not got around to it. Tonight might be the night - unless it’s dreadful that is.


#352

GET SOME


#353

It’s great fun :+1: It’s definitely not a straight up horror though - has a similar thread of black comedy running through it to Army Of Darkness…


#354

Good to hear. Thanks. I’ll get it on later.


#355

sorry that “get some” is a quote from drag me to hell. just realised it might seem a bit aggressive :sweat_smile:


#356

i bloody hated Ghost Stories


#357

Don’t worry - I presumed it to be a positive statement rather than an aggressive one.


#358

the Robert Carlyle zombie kind of ruined the second half for me with his thing of teleporting to wherever the protagonists were at any given moment.


#359

Yep, this was really good fun. Thoroughly enjoyed it.


#360

Excellent :+1: Any chance of a brief review?
