‘Saltburn’ Sparks a Wave of Hilariously Horrified Family Reactions on Social Media [Video]

Saltburn - Reaction Video

I’m not sure what it says about me, but I wasn’t shocked by anything in the movie ‘Saltburn’. However, it seems that most viewers weren’t quite ready for what they saw, and I agree that watching it with my parents would be meltingly uncomfortable. Some people, unfettered by such reservations, have seized this opportunity to terrorize their parents during the holiday season in pursuit of TikTok content. I must admit, some of these videos are quite hilarious.

I particularly tip my hat to the guy in the first clip of the video below. TikTok user Peyton Jordan had his family take drinks from a bathtub shot glass before starting the movie for them on Christmas. It was so diabolically clever that I can’t help but respect it.

Bathtub Shots Before Watching Saltburn

There are three main scenes that seem to gross people out the most. One, of course, is the ‘Bathtub Scene’, followed by the ‘Vampire Scene’, and finally, the ‘Grave Scene’, which I actually found to be amazingly shot and quite romantic… but then again, I might be a bit of a distorted individual myself. 🤣

Saltburn Grave Scene

I won’t delve too deeply into the scenes so as not to spoil anything for those who haven’t watched it yet. Take a look at some of the reaction videos below.

This YouTube short features employees at Decider reacting to several scenes in ‘Saltburn’… what a great job to have! But really, how does this pass their HR? 😂

Saltburn Reactions

The official synopsis of ‘Saltburn’ is: Academy Award winning filmmaker Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman) brings us a beautifully wicked tale of privilege and desire. Struggling to find his place at Oxford University, student Oliver Quick (Barry Keoghan) finds himself drawn into the world of the charming and aristocratic Felix Catton (Jacob Elordi), who invites him to Saltburn, his eccentric family’s sprawling estate, for a summer never to be forgotten.

You can watch ‘Saltburn’ streaming now on Amazon Prime Video. What did you think of the movie? Let us know in the comments below.

That New A24 Supernatural Doc Everyone’s Talking About is Sus

Published

on

Christie Bosch on TikTok got the internet buzzing with her post about the new A24 true crime documentary The Navidson Record. The story involves creepy metaphysics, where a photographer named Will Navidson moves into a house that is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.

“I have never been this disturbed by a documentary and I would be careful watching it if you have any mental health issues,” Christie says in her post. She continues by stating that Navisdon brings in experts to investigate the house, documenting everything. “The difference in dimensions is only a few inches at first, but as time passes, the house expands and the men even start finding doorways that weren’t there before.”

“I don’t want to spoil what happens but I will say that when they decide to open these doors, they find spaces that defy logic and connect with something that is deeply unsettling. The ending of this film has inspired countless essays and much debate.”

@everydaychristie People always ask “where do i watch this?” 😉 #fyp #documentary #documentaries #movies #mustwatch #creepy #houseofleaves #greenscreenvideo ♬ original sound – Christie Bosch

This documentary sounds fantastic, so where can you watch it? Well, you can’t. It’s fake, at least in Christie’s context. But you can read the book.

Christie posted this mock review on February 15. And since then it’s disappointed fans about over a million times. It’s actually the story from the very popular real-life book titled House of Leaves written by Mark Z. Danielewski in 2000.

The book is about as meta as you can get with a story inside a story. Some spoilers ahead: A man finds a manuscript written by another man named Zampanò who is writing about a man named Will Navidson who is documenting his strange house via film. Whether the things that are happening in the house are real, or even if the documentary is real, is the question. It’s complicated, but that’s what makes Christie’s video such a deep cut.

After the onslaught of questions from her followers about where to watch this incredible documentary, Christie’s boyfriend filmed a response:

@everydaychristie Replying to @sebtalks ♬ original sound – Christie Bosch

It’s the ultimate “if you know, you know prank,” and Christie fooled a lot of people who didn’t know. She had to clarify her intentions in a since-deleted follow-up response.

“A lot of you are asking where to watch this, so I will explain,” she says. “I didn’t think this would get this many views because it’s so niche. First of all, you can’t watch this anywhere. I’m really sorry. Please forgive me.”

Many eager viewers ran to YouTube and found that there is indeed a documentary titled The Navidson Record but it’s not from A24.

“If you spent time watching that four part series on YouTube, I’m really sorry, I didn’t know that that existed. But I bet those people who made that are probably impressed with the amount of views they’re getting.”

Christie then apologizes for her little joke and makes the following statement: “I promise that in the future ones I won’t lie to you guys or fool you.”

So The Navidson Record does exist, but it doesn’t, but it does.

Ari Aster-Produced ‘Sasquatch Sunset’ is 2024’s WTF Movie Moment [Trailer]

Published

on

Sasquatch Sunset

As we have seen with Beau is Afraid, director Ari Aster, when left to his own devices, loves to see his audience asking, “What the f**k did I just watch?” Although he didn’t direct Sasquatch Sunset, he produced it, and what a weird NSFW experience indeed — and that’s just the trailer!

In what seems like part absurd nature documentary and part Christopher Guest expose, we find ourselves exploring the private lives of three Bigfoot, or Sasquatch for those into bipedal cryptoids. Sasquatch Sunset is directed by David and Nathan Zellner who are just as quirky as Aster when it comes to storytelling.

According to IMDb, the film had many walkouts during its premiere at Sundance Film Festival this year. It should be noted that the film is rated R for, “some sexual content, full nudity and bloody images.” This isn’t the first time David Zellner has explored the mythical and elusive primates. In 2010, he directed a short called Sasquatch Birth Journal 2 which is exactly what it says it is. We have provided that video after the Sasquatch Sunset trailer.

 Sasquatch Sunset stars: Jesse Eisenberg, Riley Keough, Nathan Zellner and Christophe Zajac-Denek.

‘Pinocchio’ Cut Free of Copyright And Yes, It’s Becoming a Horror Movie

Published

on

Pinocchio

Many genre fans dislike the trend of formerly copywritten characters entering the public domain and becoming horror movies. This has happened to Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse’s Steamboat Willy, Bambi, Peter Pan and now the latest: Pinocchio.

Leading this charge are producers Rhys Frake-Waterfield and Scott Jeffrey who have vowed to create their own universe containing these once untouchable icons. Although creating a murderous anthropomorphic yellow bear or killer boy-like puppet has always been free to do, it seems filmmakers are writing their hands with dollar signs in their eyes as Disney loses their copyrights to characters they themselves took from other works almost a hundred years ago.

The latest of these is Pinocchio, an already terrifying story about a sentient wooden puppet who wants to be a real boy. Called Pinocchio: Unstrung, the movie will come from Frake-Waterfield and Jeffrey’s Jagged Edge label.

The moviemaking duo is currently taking the profits they got from last year’s Winnie the Pooh: Blood & Honey to make a its sequel. And now that Tigger has entered the public domain, they are making him a part of that film. He was absent from the original.

There is no word of plot or setting for Pinocchio: Unstrung and casting is still underway, but reportedly you won’t have to wait long since they would like to release it in 2024.
