I just looked it up...no dates. Though SyFy says they'll release one at the same time each year.

Also, it looks like just the opening scene is in DC. Most of the events will take place...um..."on the Florida coast in Orlando."

Time Lapse.

Three hipsters (one of whom is the major domo/property manager for their apartment complex) go to check out what is presumed to be some sad old guy who's died in his apartment. What they find is a steampunk Polaroid that takes pictures of their living room as it will be in 24 hours. They decide to use this to make money and end up paying a weird homage to Shallow Grave in terms of pissing off bookies and going insane over a suitcase of cash, with a girl in the mix to make it a crazy unrequited love/women are evil triangle.

What's totally bizarre is that, right off the bat, they all convince themselves that they must do exactly what's in the photo. So day after day they recreate the scene in the photo  -- even if it means the one guy is fucking the other guy's girlfriend (or they commit major crimes like murder or whatever). They say that time can't be changed and refuse to even try to do so. As the situations become more dangerous and complicated, they take measures to make the photo become reality. Talk about stupid. At least write this so that they do try to change it but the inevitable happens, right? But, no. The movie is about them actively contriving -- and nearly not succeeding -- to make the inevitable happen.

How did this get made?

This is why idiots should not be given access to weird artifacts. I could do so much better!

And a better script would be showing why I actually couldn't...

Dark Summer. It's an anti-hacker movie. A 17 year old stalks some girl online and cracks all of her passwords so that he can get pictures of her. He loves her, and he does nothing to hurt her. He doesn't steal her identity, or her money, or anything. He's just in love with her and stalking her.

Okay, so he gets busted and he's put under house arrest for the summer. And...his mom is away...for the summer...so...he's alone...?? Weird.

Anyway, he's all moody because he's going stir crazy even though he has a big house and a pool and a hot hanger-on girl and a buddy who brings him tons of pot. Then he hacks into the neighbor's wi-fi and continues to creep around online...but not stalky. The girl he stalked skypes him and says, "You ruined my life and now you will feel what I feel" and she blows her head off right there on Skype in what I think was not meant to be a LOL moment.

She then begins to aggressively haunt the fuck out of him.

The movie is well done...good acting, good production, good old-school horror creepiness. But the problem is that he didn't actually do anything to this girl's life that would lead her to suicide and an afterlife vendetta. If he'd ruined her life or something, okay. Or posted naked pictures or something... But the movie takes great pain to stress that he DID NOT hurt her in anyway, except crack her passwords.

Weird. I guess this is some sort of subset of the old rule that Hollywood doesn't really understand hacking, yet insists on making hacker movies.

There's only about one horror movie a year that piques my interest these days. Last year it was The Babadook. This year it's Goodnight Mommy.

We Are Still Here and It Follows are my high points this year.

Babadook was retarded. If we're going for horror movies you should have seen in 2014, I would point to Horns. Maybe Deep in the Darkness...such a classic throwback. Felt like i was watching something out of Twlight Zone. Dean Stockwell was quite perfect in it, as well.
