    Also I'm always gonna suggest the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies bc special interest. I do believe the plot hangs on to the Dinos being genetically altered to be more aggressive and the general knowledge that we don't quite know exactly what kinda behaviors real toothboys would have irl, but it's still all favorites for me

    @Deresto Post-apoc sounds cool! I don't have an opinion one way or the other about meteors.

    I don't think I've watched any of the Jurassic Park/World movies, to be honest...even the original. My experiential background with classic movie franchises is so bad. >>; You're right, now is the perfect time to catch up...

    It has a lot of discussion on the ethics of cloning as well, and discourse on whether or not dinosaurs should be considered animals or not seeing if they'd fit under conservation laws as an endangered species! It's very interesting

    I'll also be forever disgruntled on how they did Samuel Jackson's character so dirty -_-

    If you're interested in TV as well as movies, The Terror season 1 has a supernatural antagonist but is also very heavily about survival in the Arctic. (Season 2 is an entirely different plotline)

    Natural disasters can be plentifully found in the many, many movies of varying quality based around the 2012 prediction if you wanna shop around in that department, and I've heard good things about Backcountry on Netflix but haven't seen it myself, so the bear (it's about a grizzly) may be out of character

    Slasher film family time! One of my absolute favorite animators did a cute Gas Station Stop trope with film serial killers and it's oddly wholesome:

    A lot of the comments on this vid were basically half asking why pennywise wasn't allowed in the store and the others responding with "pets aren't allowed" and honestly that cracks me tf up

    I don't know Super Eyepatch Wolf, but I'm always happy to hear Chi no Wadachi get a shout-out. It's my favorite work of Oshimi's. If you're okay with the subject matter I'd definitely recommend it.

    The entire manga is about a son's relationship with his emotionally abusive mom, so uh...that mostly. Fucked Up Parental Relationships. I'm 99% sure it falls under the umbrella of emotional incest? Like, it doesn't quite go into the realm of sexual abuse, but it's still certainly inappropriate and harmful, and if I was really sensitive to the topic of incest I don't think I'd be well off reading it.

    I find that with comics and manga I'm exceptionally aware that it's not going to continue without me. I turn the pages, or do whatever the digital equivalent is, and assault my own eyes with images. It's like continuously rickrolling yourself. You don't just happen to hear Rick Astley, you click on the link. You knew there might be Rick Astley and you clicked anyway with immediate results, and now you're doing it again. It wouldn't be the same experience if it were more passive or had less of an immediate impact. Not necessarily a worse experience, but different.

    (I can't usually play horror video games because the format tends to give me too much sense of autonomy in the process. No, I don't want to do that trope, it's obviously a terrible idea kthxbai. And that's why I love certain entries in the Elder Scrolls series so much. They empowered me so much that I decided that I did want to volunteer for the bad idea, even though I knew Rick Astley was definitely gonna be there, and he totally was.)

    prismaticvoid Too Too Abstract

    The music fucking rules, but it's hard to tell if it's gonna be any good visually since what they have there is basically barely-animated panels from the manga. crossing fingers?

    Wormwitch I'm literally Mulder.

    Just finished watching Impetigore on shudder, it was pretty good.

    When the main character's best friend was murdered and skinned it was really sad. She was the one who said the village was creepy and she wanted to leave, but then she made the bad decision that got her killed. She shouldn't have claimed to be the woman that someone's already tried to murder, especially when the villagers are acting weird. I was also put off by the ending, but I guess I should have known the evil old lady would come back, she started the whole cursed village mess and now she's continuing it from beyond the grave.

    latitans zounds, scoob

    i've been using libby a lot to get ebooks from my library, and i've been pretty pleased with their horror selection! a good way to spend days stuck inside.

    right now i'm in the middle of t. kingfisher's the twisted ones. it's a very creepy bit of a folk horror, and although the narrative voice can be a bit grating and over-done it's been a fun read. and the narrative voice does keep the story away from the oppressive dourness that some horror novels suffer from.

    (i don't know if anyone read hex--it had a totally great premise but then was just 400 pages of absolute bummers over and over again. turned into a real slog that even ghost witches couldn't liven up, imo.)

    but one of the best things in the twisted ones imo is the fun meta-fiction relationship it has with The White People (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_White_People). it's available for free online and holy shit. completely incredible. highly recommend.

    if anyone has any suggestions for more folk horror novels, i'm hungry for 'em
