It seems to be a point of pride among the Hollywood machine to somehow make films and shows that both piss off, and engage, the viewers. At least Handmaid's Tale still has some quality to it. Better than the Michael Bay fan piss-offs where there's not even anything to show for it once you get past the insult.People who "create" media seem to be in a very combative "fuck the fans" nature. Otherwise someone might call it "fan service," which is a M O R O N I C term to begin with.
Did they not take the Michael Bay fan piss-off as you put it and turn it up several notches?Blumhouse has a lot of sins, but Halloween was always bottom rung. Blaming Blumhouse for bad Halloween is like blaming a bad cook when you get a shit burger at McDonalds.
No. They took a property already known for shitting on fans and breathed on the dial.Did they not take the Michael Bay fan piss-off as you put it and turn it up several notches?
They took over for Platinum Dunes in that respect. Unlike PD, though, they have much of nothing worth a shit. Platinum Dunes at least had a couple remakes that were decent (TCM, F13 for the most part).No. They took a property already known for shitting on fans and breathed on the dial.
Sorry, no budging me from thinking Halloween was a tainted property long before Blumhouse batted an eye at it. Blumhouse and Halloween go together like shit and flies.
If only Blumhouse would stick to Halloween and stop shitting up the rest of the horror landscape.

Which Halloween sequels shit on fans in your opinion?
Ouch lol.The ones that exist?
I never got the appeal of Halloween at all. Even the first one felt like a direct to video release back when it came out, and that was back when it didn't take much to get my interest when it came to horror. There was just nothing at all there, and certainly nothing worth making a sequel over.
There, I've spent more time writing about Halloween than I probably should.
I will add, I've seen them all up to about 2006 or so. Back when we still had Netflix disc subs. I've heard the fans screaming bloody murder for every single sequel, and never understood how there was enough of a base to be so rabid over it.Ouch lol.
Started Guillermo Del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities the other night and have been enjoying it, aside from the second episode which was a frustrating watch. Just finished the Pickman's Mod episode and loved what they did with one of my favourite Love craft stories. Great way to expand beyond the pretty lukewarm reveal of the original story and bring it to modern TV, in my opinion.
Fun spoopy series so far, and my partner and I really dug the autopsy episode (number 3 I think?)
Funny enough, reading Pickman's Model in high school for the first time also gave me some really fucked up dreams. Dreams in the Witch House was pretty decent too but quite different from what I remember of the source material.Just wrapped this up (as far as what's currently out) based on your recommendation, loved every episode. Pickman's Model gave me some really fucked up dreams. Even the episodes that aren't straight HPL retellings carry the same vibes. Right up there with Love, Death & Robots In Vaulted Halls Entombed for successful screen adaptations of HPL mythos storytelling.
The Murmuring and The Viewing were my favorites so far, but every single episode delivered.
Got the last epeisode to watch but for me its been right up there with the first 2 seasons of The Mandolorian.Andor is damn good star wars show
