Which horror movie franchise would John Wick have the most trouble surviving in? (2024)

What movie franchises can you just not get into no matter how you try?

For the life of me, I just cannot finish the second Pirates of the Caribbean movie and won’t go any further into the franchise because of it. Compared to Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man’s Chest quickly paces itself at the rate of a snail and I have switched it off - not once, but twice. Another franchise that I just don’t find myself attracted to is The Fast and the Furious. The first one just doesn’t sit right with me in regard to the LAPD. That could have been a great reveal, but it’s told to the audience right away. Picky, I know. I’ve tried to watch the movie three times now in the span of three years or so and just cannot understand the plot choice. I really want to know - what are some franchises that you really tried to get into but can’t?

Are you a fan of slow-burn horror?

I used to be a big fan of mainstream horror releases, such as the Insidious franchise, but when I saw Insidious: The Red Door in theaters last year, I walked out of the theater extremely disappointed. I think I gravitate toward slow-burn horror now more than ever (even if it's still a "mainstream" release), and there are so many great films in the subgenre. I'm a massive fan of Ari Aster, and if you include Midsommar and Hereditary as "slow-burn" horror, then those are some of my favorites (though Beau is Afraid is my favorite project from the filmmaker). I also love The Witch and The Lighthouse from Robert Eggers, along with The Babadook and The Wicker Man (1973). I've heard good things about The Blackcoat's Daughter and I am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House from Oz Perkins, which may be a good watch before Longlegs. What is your favorite slow-burn horror film?

Do you have any hope for Hellboy: The Crooked Man?

I will always be excited for superhero movies that are not Marvel or DC affiliated. Not that I hate the big two comic properties for positioning themselves as powerhouses on the big screen, but seeing the underdog IP’s try and make a name for themselves is always nice. With that being said, my high hopes for Hellboy: The Crooked Man are coming down. The dialogue from the trailer is cringy (dark things call to dark things - really?) and the horror visuals just look so uninspired. On the other hand, I do like the fact that the story is not - once again - about saving the world. It looks much more like a down to earth folkloric tale which the comics are known for. Plus, Hellboy seems to have only one ally and not a whole team, which is also true to some comics. Do you enjoy what you see with the Hellboy: The Crooked Man trailer or will it be another failure like the 2019 reboot?

What's the your favorite spoof movie?

The first time I saw Spaceballs, I legitimately thought I might die of laughter. Of course, I was 8 years old, so I was experiencing a lot of firsts. Still, it remains one of my favorite movies, one I'm capable of quoting quite a large chunk of from memory. And this, despite most of its material relies on prior knowledge of the Star Wars franchise. Such is the nature of a spoof. Scream, on its own, masterfully lampooned the persistent excesses of horror movies, then Scary Movie took Scream's premise to its most ridiculous limits and managed to earn 4 sequels and endless spinoffs. Austin Powers is just as famous a cinematic secret agent as James Bond. The best spoofs stay with us all the same as the movies they're ripping off. What's your favorite spoof movie?

What did you think of A Family Affair?

There are a lot of conflicting pros and cons going around about A Family Affair. On one hand, the majority of both critics and audiences don't seem to like it, with Rotten Tomatoes scores standing at 39% and 30%, respectively. However, I have still seen people declaring it the rebirth of the rom-com, and, perhaps more importantly, it has Nicole Kidman in it who can do no wrong in my eyes. I might be late to the party but is it worth giving it a watch or should I save myself the energy?

What is the best found footage movie?

Found footage movies aren't as popular as they once were, but I still enjoy revisiting some classics of the subgenre. I'll admit, I'm a sucker for Cloverfield. I'll never forget seeing the first trailer in theaters, and I was immediately drawn to the Matt Reeves flick. Of course, the movie might overdo it with the shaky cam, and if you easily get motion sick, it probably isn't for you. However, despite my love for Cloverfield, I think The Blair Witch Project is probably a better film. It still holds up today, and though it wasn't the first found footage film, it helped start the trend that would continue with the massive hit that was Paranormal Activity. However, there are so many other options, from Lake Mungo to V/H/S and many, many more. So, what is the best found footage movie, and why?
