You Might Be the Killer

I like meta horror, I like Franz Kranz and Alyson Hannigan but I also like to see something besides a "funny" concept for 90 minutes.

Room 104: 2x12 Josie & Me

Not a big fan of this season. While the episodes not written by Mark Duplass were generally better, they all fall into the same format trapping of not wanting to tell you >one< specific thing and talking around it despite this being guessable or just... not very interesting and thus just wasting time by doing this.
The storytelling technique in this one was certainly interesting but nothing about what went on felt particularly believable. Be it her contradicting persona, nor how the incident played out. Despite being kinda patronizing it at least reflects on a different viewpoint too.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: 1x11 Chapter Eleven: A Midwinter's Tale

Wow, this episode was absolute garbage. Not only did it fail at being a fun christmas special, it also trashed future story threads alongside with it. Thankfully Netflix already had the S2 trailer ready for autoplay after this so that I can be certain that Season 2 is not offering anything I'm interested in either.

Halloween

This barely passed in my book... It's utterly generic for most of it's runtime and wastes a lot of time just racking up some kills until it comes around to the main attraction. David Gordon Green adds very little flavor to it but that is also not surprising with four writers on this. What is however is all the elaborate stupidity that made it into the script.
The multi-generational element of the story was the saving grace for me and the theme song never gets old either :).

Dream Corp, LLC

I'm really liking this second season. Watched most of the first one without any strong feelings to it but it really improved all around with fun guest stars and ever creative animation work. Mårten Tedin joining as a cinematographer is also a perfect fit.

GOBLIN SLAYER: 1x07 Onward Unto Death

Cam

Really disappointed by this... While there is a decent thriller in here and a good performance from Brewer, it failed to get much into her life as a camgirl and the identity theft is not played out very realistically (my issue isn't really with the twist but how the whole thing is approached).

Death House

Ok... what the actual fuck is this movie? The story makes no sense and the leads are painful to watch. Add to that shitty pacing, editing and direction and you got yourself a major turd. This is not what I expected based on the many character actors in this (they are barely even on screen)...

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: 13x10 Mac Finds His Pride

No Dennis again, little Charlie and Dee but an (decently choreographed) interpretive dance that is tonally from a different show instead. As if the super bowl episodes weren't already meh... not a great season imho.
(I'm aware that this comment will only garner me popularity but this is not the kind of transgressive I want in Sunny. Looking at an interview about this https://www.vulture.com/2018/11/its-always-sunny-mac-dance-season-13-finale.html does only confirm this for me.)

Cosmic Horror

A lot of the movies in your list I'd not consider "cosmic horror" to be honest. Some are rooted in folklore, some alien-themed or just sci-fi horror films. That said, I really enjoy movies with an unknown and overwhelming force. The movie "Noroi" captures some of those elements really good which I'd recommend but it's not really on the topic either.
I think I'm finally going to give Yellowbrickroad & and Banshee Chapter a shot ;).

I found this to have the superior setup to the previous entry and also overall more enjoyable but it's still overly long for what it offers.

Follow This: 1x17 Sexbots

"But will these new robots plunge us into a future where men treat women like literal objects or is this just hysterics" asked the woman creating a biased and completely uneducated mini-documentary. Also who is editing these together? Some of the dialogue seems oddly cut together to mean something else... at least we know that she drinks cold brew coffee as that is also relevant.

My House Walk-Through

Somehow I never crossed paths with the youtube channel nana825763 but there are some really creepy and disturbing videos uploaded on there, next to... Minecraft let's plays. While his earlier stuff has a lot of digital art and stop motion this one seems to be the most fleshed out from his "live-action" work. It's quite impressive how he managed to make this tiny set built around a hellish hallway ooze so much atmosphere.

Jingai-san no Yome

I can power through some awful sub 5min shows no problem but this one does not seem to be concerned to explain what it's whacky story concept was about and instead focuses on unfunny comedy normalizing zoophilia he gets turned on by a wiggly tail (target audience is probably in the furry realm..).

Charmed: 1x02 Let This Mother Out

While this episode was luckily a lot less preachy than the pilot, it did little to reinforce my trust in the remake. Instead of giving the girls the time to explore their newfound powers and sisterhood it gets crammed with episodic fantasy stuff that CW shows apparently require. Them behaving very random and frankly stupid also didn't help it (was close to turning it off). I'll gladly welcome a Charmed reboot in my TV schedule but if this is all we can settle for then I'm going to drop this sooner than later.

Not the worst movie ever but it's terribly bland... The only positive is that they decently hid the real "twist" by shoving in one that is way too obvious ;)...

What a dumpster fire... had to aboard ship early. Slowly paced with a shitty script and some really wooden acting in the mix. Whenever there is a baby in the crib, do not forget to walk towards it slowly, and very afraid... IT'S FUKN BABIES MAN!!!

Mainly watched this for Fillion so my expectations were quite low and got exactly that. It will most likely end up in the pile of other procedural but it's hard to tell from this episode alone since they crammed in so much stuff (way too much tbh)...

I think Mike Flanagan is quite competent in most of what he does, but nothing of his ever blew me away. This show is no different as he certainly is aware of today's tropes and crafts an unusually slow paced horror story more focused on the psychological impact of the haunting than scares, but after so many scene transitions between the story's timelines it gets quite tedious. It is really the later half of the series that tainted my enjoyment with more focus on melodramatic elements, monologues and a conclusion that had me feeling like I just wasted quite a lot of time...
