For release, a quick script I created that checks a Subsonic server for Now Playing information and displays it on a web page. There’s nothing too complicated here. It just checks the server every 8 seconds and updates the page as necessary. Not a whole lot of error checking either. And definitely not secure as… continues
Subsonic: Now Playing displayed on a web page.
TRIANGLE (2009) Like Timecrimes, but on a boat!
30 DAYS OF NIGHT (2007) Did you know Barrow, AK changed its name to Utqiaġvik back in 2016? Maybe it was because of all the vampires.
[REC] 4 Apocalypse (2014) The last one in the series. This takes us back to the apartment building from the first 2 films, with the original news anchor to boot. It also completely ditches the found footage element. So calling it [REC] is a bit of a stretch at this point. To fulfill the small… continues
[REC]3 Genesis (2012) The third! offering in the Spanish horror franchise. Following the revelation in [REC]2, that you can spread demonic possession via the blood, we move from the apartment building of the first 2 films, to a wedding – and it becomes more of a straight up zombie film. 22 minutes in, we see… continues
[REC] 2 (2009) This takes the horror of [REC] and explains everything, for better or for worse. I vote worse, because the explanation doesn’t make sense logically. It’s demonic possession, but spread via the blood. I guess that’s a unique take, but somehow I think someone experimenting with a bioweapon in their apartment would be… continues
[REC] (2007) This is so much better than the watered-down made-for-Americans remake. It is supposed to be one long take, and it is for the most part. But there’s obvious places where the scene changes, especially when they go into dark places. When the camera points somewhere dark, they splice the scene. It’s a great… continues
PRINCE OF DARKNESS (1987) John Carpenter at his best. Everything is here. Creepy, cosmic horror. Secretive organizations of the church doing scientific work. Donald Pleasance, Alice Cooper, Jesus-was-an-astronaut, and plenty of defenestrations! In fact, this movie probably has the most defenestrations of any film in the 80s. A worthy feat, to be sure. This is… continues
HALLOWEEN KILLS (2021) Imagine if you will that H.P. Lovecraft describing every single detail of every single cosmic horror in his mythos. The Mad Arab gets a lengthy backstory. Every page and spell in the Necronomicon is recounted. That’s a fair description of all these modern reboots / remakes / requels like Halloween Kills. Unnecessary,… continues
SESSION 9 (2001) One of David Caruso’s attempts at making it big in the world of film. I wonder if people ever ask him to ‘do that thing with the sunglasses, man.’ By the way, I am pretty sure that’s not how electricity works. That guy was this close to outrunning the power outage.
