What Did You Watch This Weekend?

7 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Weekend Watch is an open thread where you can share what you’ve recently watched, offer suggestions on movies and TV shows we should check out (or warnings about stuff to avoid) and discover queue-filling goodies from other Fsr readers. The comments section awaits. I’ll get the ball rolling with the movies/TV my eyeballs took in this weekend. Adam Green’s Hatchet is a fun and gory slasher that has fun with the genre while also telling its own goofy little legend, but the sequel is a far lesser creation. The gore is still prevalent but the entertainment is minimal elsewhere. Hatchet III just hit Netflix so I gave it a watch, and unfortunately it’s more of the sequel same. There are some wonderfully bloody effects to enjoy, but the characters and story add nothing of note (aside from a super silly mythology) to the franchise. Danielle Harris »

We hope you’ve enjoyed reading our writers’ picks, which not only includes movies, but performances, events, and collectibles. Wrapping up our Favorites of 2013 is Kristian Hanson, who shares some of his favorite movies, collectibles, and TV shows:

The Conjuring:

Taking a look back at 2013, the horror community was privileged to a great deal of quality film and horror collectibles. For my pick of my favorite horror film this year, I would have to place The Conjuring at the top of my list. I grew up with stories from my mother about these case files and when I finally got to see the film, James Wan did not disappoint.
