You'll know it's a dream, questioning if this is a real spectre or a stress dream, the thing is to force her out all the same. When you're asleep and she shows up, feel the life in you, focus it. Face her down and burn her out of your world.

    Well I should point out that while I felt fear in the dream, when I woke I was exhilarated and really wished the theme of that dream was a movie I could watch. If it is a recurring dream, I look forward to it with relish. My dream brain seems to be pretty good at keeping me entertained.

    @Cambiata Try making some work of art off the dream.

    I really need to get Hulu and Netflix again. I haven't seen any new horror movies in aaaages and I realized it's because I don't really use any streaming services right now!

    I've thought of this before but am not a particularly good artist. Though there's one visual scene from one of my dreams that's still so burned into my memory that I think I could possibly paint it - a rather gory opera that ends with the female protagonist singing her triumphant final aria on a red and black stage (implied that it's raining blood) while wearing a white glittering dress.

    As I can't understand the comments, I will assume that this is a real ghost / demon / ghost demon and everybody is commenting to say so

    they look friendly! spirit crossing guard! getting the little ghost kids safely to ghost school. cuz when you die you just get born as a ghost and you get another shot and if you do good then you get born as a human again, but if you do bad in ghost school then you get a job as a demon working in the public sector for hell's bureaucracy. which isn't bad, really, there's a lot to be said for being a public servant, but still.

    I haven't watched too many spooky movies but I wanted to tell yall that Channel Zero is worth watching. I'll try to avoid spoilers but feel free to skip this post if you are worried about me slipping.

    Season 1 is Candle Cove and I thought that they used the puppet stuff really well. I remember last time it was brought up in this thread people were saying they over explained stuff but I found all the explanations to be unsatisfactory, much like a Lost mystery. I don't regret watching it though and it turns out that the Kris Straub story has a whole fandom/wiki around it where people add their own stuff and that's kind of cool.

    Season 2 is No End House Which is easily my favorite. I would rank it up with movies like Sixth Sense and It Follows in terms of quality. Much like those two movies it takes place in a mostly normal world but with things always seeming off in a way that you just can't place. I found myself on edge/uncomfortable throughout the story and even rented it again from the library so I could re-watch it. The actors all do a great job with their roles as well, lots of good facial acting in this one.

    Season 3 is Butcher's Block and I went in with low expectations since the baddies in this one are kind of cannibals which are in a cult which serves an unnamed god who looks suspiciously what you might depict the biblical devil as. The plot sort of meanders and towards the final episodes it feels more like unconnected events happening than a coherent plot. I did think the two main girls did an excellent job acting, and there is a B-plot with the main character struggling with her families schizophrenia and trying not to deal with her past that is really interesting. Otherwise I would say skip this one entirely.

    Will have to wait till Season 4 is released on DVD to watch it but I am looking forward to it. With only 6 hour long episodes per season the pacing feels really good with no filler.

    No end house was so good. Even from a music and cinematography department. Really great use of every tool they had. Good actors too.

    I didn't finish butcher's block. I just really didn't understand. The scene in the tub was fascinatingly gross.

    But the real shame is that they took stairs in the woods from the search and rescue stories on nosleep which are way way more interesting and not sure why they didn't use that concept.

    Steven Spielberg's production company just picked up The Spire in the Woods, a nosleep story and then book, for a movie adaptation (retitled as The Bells)

    I read it over the last couple days and it starts strong but really lost me in the last couple chapters

    Spire is one of two stories people go crazy over on no sleep and I didn't care for either. (The other is borrasca)

    They both lean toward drama over horror and I got pretty bored.

    Why can't someone make a movie or series about Left Right game

    I really loved the whole aesthetic of No End House but I really think they dragged it out and made it overstay its welcome. The show just felt extraordinarily hollow after a few episodes.
