Is the full name Millicent Roberta Brown, I've always wondered. Cos that is the kind of name you'd expect from someone playing McGonagall.
OTOH Millicent *is* Barbie's middle name. Seriously.

ESPECIAL VERANO DE TERROR NETFLIX (2021). Analizamos las seis grandes producciones originales de terror, desde la trilogía #FearStreet al completo a la "Midsommar italiana" #AClassicHorrorStory o el thriller de vampiros #RedBloodSky. Pasen y lean: bit.ly/2UzPmWR Image
#FearStreet1994(2021) divertidísimo inicio de la trilogía de terror de Netflix que actualiza los libros de R.L. Stine a la era #StrangerThings, carta de amor a SCREAM con twist sobrenatural y muertes con gran gore para un slasher algo televisivo muy dirigido a adolescentes ImageImageImageImage
#LaCalleDelTerror 1994 demuestra por qué el slasher juvenil de los 90 le debe mucho a series literarias como Fear Street, captando las claves del género que ayudó a expandir Kevin Williamson, muy influenciado por las dinámicas del terror de instituto de Stine o Lois Duncan. ImageImageImageImage

De HISTORIAS PARA NO DORMIR hasta 30 MONEDAS, las series de terror españolas han dado miedo en televisión desde los años 60 hasta hoy, repasamos las mejores en un hilo cronológico con Chicho Ibáñez Serrador como gran pionero hasta el bombazo de Álex de la Iglesia.👇 ImageImageImageImage
HISTORIAS PARA NO DORMIR fue la antología creada por Chicho Ibáñez Serrador como respuesta ibérica a THRILLER de Boris Karloff, con adaptaciones de clásicos literarios de terror e historias originales creadas para la serie. Así era su mítica entradilla.
HISTORIAS PARA NO DORMIR tuvo 3 épocas, de 1966 a 1982 y entre sus mejores episodios hay adaptaciones de Poe, Bradbury... la representación de la indiferencia ante la asfixia española en 'El Asfalto', 'El televisor', 'La sonrisa', 'El regreso' o el horror ventrílocuo de 'Freddy'.

#LosNuevosMutantes (2020)💀💀💀½ es el club de los 5 Dream Warriors, una aventura de cómics Fórum con horror onírico juvenil de espíritu BUFFY y #StrangerThings. Reflejo Marvel de GLASS, da lo que promete su tráiler pero es como el piloto de una gran serie que ya no podremos ver. ImageImageImageImage
THE NEW MUTANS funciona como coming of age de superhéroes planteado in media res, adaptando la saga 'The Demon Bear' sin sorpresas para los fans del cómic, pero con toques de rebeldía que echaremos de menos en el Marvel que viene: tacos, héroes LGTB sexualmente activos y terror. ImageImageImageImage
#LosNuevosMutantes es un film pequeño, alejado de la espectacularidad de los grandes blockbusters, destila mimo por sus personajes pero da la impresión de haber sido remodelado durante la absorción de Fox a Disney, es un testamento a otra forma de ver el cine de superhéroes. ImageImageImageImage

What seems to be now a weekly event with the @NJDeptofHealth, #NJ reported 699 new cases during the virtual update today. This felt like an outlier, and once again I call into question the data integrity issues that the state routinely finds itself in /1

First, I track the cases, hospitaliz., and deaths each day to see when the illnesses of these "new" events occurred. At first glance, it was clear something was amiss in today's data update. Since 7/31 when illness onset data collection began I've yet to see a # this high /2
One of the neat things about the new tab is you can see totals over periods of time. For example, here is the total unknown assigned cases over the entire pandemic up through Aug 3rd. There was only 615 cases that did not counties assigned (What are these?) 3/

Empezamos las NOCHES DE TERROR en este hilo a las 22:00h (España). Hablaremos de FROM BEYOND (1986) como homenaje a Stuart Gordon, y puedes tuitear con con nosotros con el hagstag #FromBeyondHorrorLosers. Antes comentaremos alguna curiosidad, y a las 10 en punto daremos al play. Image
FROM BEYOND fue una historia de H.P. Lovecraft publicada en la revista THE FANTASY FAN en 1934. Es uno de sus primeros acercamientos al horror cósmico que marcaría el estilo de sus relatos más adelante. El relato tan solo tenía siete páginas. Image
FROM BEYOND (1986) fue la segunda adaptación de Lovecraft rodada por Stuart Gordon tras la exitosa RE-ANIMATOR (1985). Le seguirían CASTLE FREAK (1995) y DAGON (2001), entre otras. #FromBeyondHorrorLosers ImageImageImageImage

#GameofThrones used #Iceland's #Thingvellir Park as the #BloodyGate. Its landscape is caused by the Eurasian and #NorthAmerican tectonic plates meeting there and pulling apart at a rate of 2 cms per year. This made a rift valley: low land between 2 separating continents.

#MagheramorneQuarry, #NorthernIreland, is the set for #CastleBlack and #TheWall in #GameofThrones. The quarry wall is used as a backdrop and effects make it look huge.
The site's limestone was used to make cement. #NS has a limestone quarry and cement plant in Brookfield.

Remember when you were all talking about #StrangerThings last month?

I caught up on the series and finally finished this Billy piece. Image
@dacremontgomery This was mostly an opportunity to draw a '79 Camaro.

Look carefully, I didn't copy/paste those wheels. Making a car look natural is often in how you handle wheels, because they're one part of a precisely engineered object that are not perfectly lined up.
@dacremontgomery I like Billy's character.

At first, he comes across as a one-dimensional asshole older bro but as season 3 progresses, you gain empathy for him, even through his evil trance.

Anoche terminé de ver la 3ª temporada de #StrangerThings y la verdad es que aluciné. Es una pasada. Y ahora vas a ser tú quien alucine: ¿Sabías que la Virgen María aparece en todos los episodios? Te lo cuento en el #HiloDeStrangerThings
Si no has visto la serie, mejor no sigas, porque puede que no entiendas muchas cosas. Además, si quieres verla en un futuro, hago spoiler, así que, repito, no sigas porque vale la pena verla sin saber cómo acaba.
Volviendo a lo de la Virgen, ¡que conste que yo no me había fijado tampoco hasta anoche en su presencia! Pero Ella estaba ahí, silenciosa, escondida…

#StrangerThings3 uses strobing lights in most of its episodes. Not only is this dangerous for people, but it over stimulates our brain so that our mind surrenders and becomes open to messaging.
Of course there are loads of product placement in this series. Coke, Gap, Cornflakes, Eggo Waffles, Burger King, KFC, Cheeto's, Kit Kat, Skittles, 711, Marlboro, Adidas ...
concavebt.com/top-10-brands-…

Is it an extra cost to be featured during the hypnotic induction strobing lights? ImageImageImage
On the deeper side, there is also esoteric narratives and messaging happening. We see the 'X' appearing, a clear reference to #psychics and #Alice mythos with Eleven. All of this dates back to Atlantean and Egyptian Magick. Check out @darkjournalist for the tea on that angle. ImageImage

OK, then, I will go ahead and review the rest of #StrangerThings, the season that dedicated itself to two noble goals: exploring the worlds of one-handed suspended strangulation and Soviet stereotypes. Also, apparently, it's very heavy on long-distance relationships. Bummer, Mike
Here is my review of the glorious Soviet stranglings in Episode 1:

And here is my explanation of Russian linguistics in American ice cream parlors in Episode 2:

Let's move on, then, with the final few episodes. Poor Alexei 😭
Let me first pay tribute to the Glorious Comrade Baumann, easily the least annoying character in season 3. The working masses of the world express the greatest hope that capitalist pig Hopper stays dead and the Marx-bearded Murray takes over as the male lead. Now, his Russian...

All right, I have now seen Episode 2 of Strangler Things... er, I mean #StrangerThings and I am profoundly happy. Mostly because the show's creators have clearly understood that one-handed strangulation does not have to be an exclusive domain of the Soviet Heavy.
I really hope more American filmmakers recognize this. Of course, Bacho slowly grabbing Pavel by the neck and pensively uttering "I told you to not make them suffer" as we see Pavel's feet dangling half a meter off the ground would have been a kickass Chernobyl scene. But...
... as the wispy-armed American idiot above clearly demonstrates, the art of one-handed suspended strangulation can be mastered by any heavy of any nationality. Of course, the American Idiot couldn't do it properly, but I didn't say everyone can be Glorious World Champion, did I?

Fun take on the #biology of the Demogorgon on #StrangerThings !

Demogorgons develop front limbs first. Interestingly, that’s how some #salamanders develop too!

1/4
#Salamanders in the family #Ambystoma (aka mole salamanders) develop their front limbs first as well!

Here is a young marbled salamander #larva showing off its front limbs & frilly external gills. Image
But for #frogs we see the back limbs developing first.

Cool #FrogFacts :

The back legs are visible as they develop on a #tadpole , but the front are hidden under a layer of skin (the operculum).

As the tadpole develops, they BURST out through the skin!

Aliens style 😉

I have started watching #StrangerThings3 and, holy crap, there are Russians in it! Suffice it to say, I have questions. And exclamations. Many, many exclamations. It looks like a thread is coming. Feel free to stop me, Twitter.
Comrade Dyatlov before he became criminally reckless.
The very opening scene, with 80s Bond flick music, tells me this is gonna be spectacular in the most horrible way. This series has been so faithful to the 80s, it now pays homage to how we looked in your imagination then
The opening shot is the classic 3 Stock Evil Russkies: the Boss, the Heavy and the Background Drone You Won't Notice But Who Makes Me Cringe. Let's dig in... The boss is Major General in what may be either Air Force or KGB border troops. He's so far pretty unremarkable

So I just got done with #StrangerThings3 and I have to say, I liked it WHILE I WAS WATCHING IT—but having digested it, I'm not very fucking impressed and I can tell you why. I don't usually do threads, but here goes: 1/
The thing that really struck me about Season 1 of #StrangerThings was its clarity of vision. It wore its Eighties influences on its sleeve, and they were quite specific influences: Spielberg, Carpenter, and King. They aimed for a tone that combined them... 2/
...and the combination of the three was as well-calculated and evocative as you might hope for. The middle ground between Eighties Horror Movie and Eighties Kid Movie was a long-neglected field that turned out to still be fertile when the Duffer Bros. arrived. 3/

#LALLORONA(2019) es la última versión de la leyenda mexicana extendida en toda Latinoamérica. El fantasma de la mujer que llora por sus hijos ha aparecido en muchas formas en la cultura popular y el cine. Repasamos las películas más importantes del mito.👇
La LLorona tiene muchas acepciones y diversificaciones, pero, resumiendo, el relato más extendido es el de una mujer pobre cuyo amante noble le abandona por una mujer de clase alta y en un arrebato ahoga a sus hijos, lamentándose el resto de su vida.
El espectro condenado de #LaLLorona, en su imagen más extendida es la de una mujer de cabello negro vestida de blanco, vagando cerca de lugares con agua (o caminos) en busca de su prole gritando "¡Ay, mis hijos!", adoptando el papel de hombre del saco que se lleva a los niños.
