Flangepart “Stop foggin’ up the glass, ya jerk!” And…minus signs for pupils. Rock Baker Octopus eyes and pointed ears. It’s either a sea monster or a demon. Either way, I’m completely stumped. On a side note, this site has really tested my patience. I detest puns, yet I have great respect for Ken. I’m constantly torn. Gamera977 I’m never understood why if you leave a window half open a monster will keep banging into the closed half instead of going out the open half… cullen_waters If it’s any comfort, I’ve seen the movie in question and I didn’t realize where that capture was from. Ken_Begg C’mon, Beverly Sills told me that joke. Greenhornet Windows 2012 had only one glitch… Ericb “Ya gotta believe me! I was framed!” Flangepart “On tonight’s panel, Glazier to the netherworld Nargathrond the impaler shows us how to install glass made from dammed souls, for only a fraction of the cost of professional damnation.” The Rev. That’s a neat looking demon. What’s this from? Ken_Begg It’s from Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell. Good stuff, it being his riff (not a remake) on the classic Curse of the Demon. The Rev. Ah, I didn’t realize any actual demons like this showed up. Yeah, I noticed the resemblance to that particular beastie. I suppose I should check if this is on Netflix or Hulu or something. I never did catch it, shame on me. Ken_Begg The views of this demon are pretty elliptical. I would again suggest watching Curse of the Demon before watching this; part of the fun is seeing Raimi’s take on similar material. The Rev. Well, I hardly need an excuse to rewatch CotD. I shall keep that in mind before I watch this. Ken_Begg Yes, or Night of the Demon (the British version; a slightly different cut). I wish there were more films like Drag Me to Hell, not straight out remakes, but riffs on previous films, taking elements and going in different directions. The only other film I can think of like that is Miller’s Crossing, which is clearly the Coen Brothers’ take on the French gangster flick Le Doulos.
