I'm sending well wishes to Jillian! I am sorry that I am unable to donate at this time.
ay YO Snob!! how come there's no love for Clive Barker on this bitch? ( and may i say that the only way i would ever use the term, "bitch" is in the vein of getting things done =-)
You need to hurry up and watch Raw Head Rex and review it for the ultimate Halloween special. At any rate...,love what you been doing. It means a lot, good stuff. but cereally...,RAW HEADHEAD REX, it's on youtube ;-)
God speed Jillian. Your in my thoughts and prayers.
Hope Jillian gets better. Anytime a Snob member has to leave, it always makes me feel like somebody's missing.
Best wishes to Jillian, Brad, and the rest of the Snob crew. I hope she gets through it as soon as possible, whatever it is she's going through.
Don't give up, Jillian!! Hang in there!!
Will watch review later, best wishes to Jillian getting better.
At least she's not watching 'The Change Up' again.
I hate when these sequels keep pissing on my grave. I swear there's no respect for the dead what so ever.
I hope Jillian is doing alright. I wish her the best of luck.
That's the same reason I moved out of my old place. Anyway, Halloween 5, the movie that's not that bad, except for the stuff that connects it to 6, which is that bad.
Same here, my neighbors were taking a toll on my sanity, which affected my physical and so forth. Ugh, poor Jillian, let's hope she finds a better place free of whatever issues currently plague her.
Best wishes to Jillian, and hooray for a lovely new Snob episode to savour.
Great stuff as usual. I get paid on Thursday so I'll see what I can do then to give Jillian a boost. Until then moral support is all I can do. Hope you feel better soon, you're missed around these parts.
All the best for you Jillian.
Get well soon Jillian! You're one of my favorite Internet celebrities!
Donated $15. I hope it helps you out, Jillian! Get well soon. :)
I used the PP button a while ago to fund Midnight Screening tickets. The very least I can do is use it again. Get well soon, Jillian!
Sidenote: When I did last use the PP button, Paypal didn't send any confirmation. If you don't see a donation come through from the email address associated with this comment, can you let me know? I don't want Paypal's fuckery to mess up the donation.
(email h...@h....com, PP transaction ending in 724)
Just sent $10 for the Jillian Relief Fund. Thanks in advance for keeping us updated, I wish her well!
Aww poor Jillian. I'll donate when I get paid Thursday. I hope she's not still staying where she is at the moment.
On Halloween 5 (copied from Patreon): Honestly I think this is the worst Halloween movie out of the original series run. Yes Resurrection shouldn't even exist but I'd be lying if I said I didn't think it was at least somewhat entertaining. Above all else, Halloween 5 is an empty, hallow, miserably boring movie.
Aw I like Jillian hoping she gets better soon. She seems so cool!
Also this video made me want to see a Halloween vs Tequila and Bonetti movie! :)
Can't donate but I never use adblock, if that helps.
so are you going to be doing two versions of Halloween 6, i.e the theatrical cut and the producers cut next year and also hope jillian gets better really soon
speaking of Halloween 6 (based on some of the comments I've read), I actually just got done watching Halloween 6 Unrated Producer's Cut on Blu-Ray since I got it in the mail this afternoon along with Alien 3. as for Halloween 5, I have to admit I think it's worse than Halloween 6 which I think is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. well, at least the Producer's Cut since the Theatrical Cut is not only an unfinished film, the re-edits is just an abomination of annoyance due to the constant jump scares, loud booms, and the strobe effects. the only decent thing about the theatrical cut is the head explosion death & the song "And Fools Shine On" by Brother Cane. with Halloween 6, at least it has some interesting production stories, a sense of atmosphere, the final performance from Donald Pleasence, and The Shape's mask done by John Carl Buechler while no where near as perfect as the original 1978 mask is still one of the most impressive masks in the series. my problem with Halloween 5 is the uneven tone, the annoying characters, Jamie Lloyd's unexplained psychic powers, the lack of burned make up on Michael's face when he has his mask off, and the overall cast. to me, there are 5 good Halloween films & 5 bad Halloween films (not counting Halloween 3 since it's technically it's own film). the good - H1, H2, H20, H4, & H6 Producer's Cut. the bad - H6 Theatrical, H5, RZ's H I & II, & H8 (which is by far the worst of the entire series). of course, that's just my opinion. as far as Halloween Returns is concerned, we'll just have to wait & see. all I can say is that it better be good and they better have a decent script this time.
on a side note, I do hope that Jillian gets better. unfortunately, I can't spare any money due to my financial situation being super tight from being on a SSI dependency which is now at risk being cut (thanks Congress). however, I can at least express my sincere wishes that she gets better and offer a lending hand with editing & artwork if you ever need it. I'm looking into finding a way to get paid for my creativity in which me and my mother are looking into selling t-shirts based on some of my darker designs. so, since I have far too much free time on my hands and 16 years devoted to my creativity (that plus the anime project that even manage to impress Rutger Hauer), I would be happy & honored to lend my assistance to you guys if you ever need it. get well Jillian, good luck with the rest of your videos for 2015, and in case I forget, Happy Halloween everyone. ^-^
I hate to read what happened to Jillian. She is a wonderful talent and appears to be a fun partner to work with you. My thoughts and prayers go out to you both, and I hope for the best everything works well in the end.
Get Better Jilly-bean.... We <3 You
***sending mental waves of support and hugs***
I hope Jillian gets help soon and is able to get back to her good health.
If I had a credit card and a better paying job, I would help Jillian out. So all I can do now is give her my blessing. Hang in there, sweety.
Best wishes to Jillian. I hope you get better soon..
Hi Brad. Discovered you when I was recovering from a major surgery. Your sense of humor and darkly observant outlook really helped me when I was in the ICU. Just thought I would let you know that you made an older man laugh. Keep pointing out the stupid while shining light on hidden gems. Thank you.
You can bet your ass I will contribute to helping Jillian.
Is your PayPal donation button the one I need to click?
I donated $5. It's not a lot, but it's all I can give. I hope Jillian gets better.
I'm flat broke, unfortunately, but at the very least I can send my best wishes to Jillian. I hope everything works out.
I hope Patreon is OK.
I'm a furniture mover and need a vacation from Milwaukee. Let me know if you need some help getting Jillian moved.
I wonder if Jillian is in a Crimson Peak situation. Either a haunted house or a house that just doesn't want to cooperate. I've been there. When the hot water tank in the apartment above you blows up, and there's water everywhere, that means you're gonna get mold. Not the same as ghosts but probably worse. You gotta get the hell outta there, man. Just get out and don't look back.
Who at this point would ever take a job as a cop in Haddonfield?
Well wishes from Australia Jillian :)
Man Loomis became such a dick in this movie
That's why Loomis is the best part in parts 4-6. He's the only reason to watch this.
Best wishes to Jillian!
Jillian has always been awesome and very friendly to me on the Facebook, and she's always been my favorite midnight screening personality. Sucks that she's going through such a rough time. I will definitely donate something...however, I'm not seeing the Donate button on the front page. Is it just the normal Donate button that has always been near the bottom? Or am I missing it elsewhere?
Also...when I was 12, I was obsessed with the Halloween franchise...and in particular this entry (even though it's pretty awful). I had this really crazy theory that Michael Myers wasn't the killer in 4 and 5...that he actually died in the fire at the end of 2...and that Laurie Strode was the one doing the killing in 4 and 5. I had a lot of evidence to back up my theory...the most damning of which was when Michael takes the mask off in this one. I took Jamie's quote of "You look like me" to mean that it was her mother. And, you know...that perfect skin around Michael's eyes, despite being shot in both eyes and completely engulfed in flames. I had a lot of other stuff to back up said theory...but alas, it didn't pan out. I was sad.
And lastly...there is no funnier image in the Halloween series, and dare I say, all of horror, than Michael Myers being locked up in jail and shackled, BUT IS ALLOWED TO KEEP HIS MASK ON!
It always cracks me up in Halloween II, when Michael finds Laurie's room and stabs at the bed before realizing she got away. You can just imagine him saying, "Goddammit. I'm sick of this shit."
I REALLY wish you would come to a Steel City Con so could meet you/give a donation in person. I don't have a credit card thus not being able to pay via online. URGH!!! The frustration! I will keep her in my prayers though. God Bless, Jillian!
As for H5, bad as it may be at least Mikey got revenge on someone. Seriously, Nightmare 2: Freddy's Revenge- on who?
Haven't seen the video yet but what you wrote about Jillian made me feel uneasy.... Hope she'll be okay and I donated something to help..
Always a good time when a new Snob episode is out!
I also donated $25 in the hopes it helps Jillian out, best wishes!
First of all, best wishes to Jillian, I don't know exactly what is her illness, but I sure that with the support of all her fans, me included, she will be well again in no time, let's keep our thoughts positive to help her!
By the way, Brad, I have to agree with you they don't make good children run overs ever since the Toxic Avenger. This days people are so PC... -_-
As soon as I get a job I will donate some money from my first pay check. Also What is going on? I know it may be personal but to me it almost sounds like a domestic violence issue."We're doing what we can to help her, and part of what will help her is to get her out of her current living situation, which involves some pretty terrible and health affecting shit."If you don't mean to imply domestic violence than you need to be a bit more clear.
She previously mentioned noisy neighbours, hopefully it' nothing more sinister than that
Poor at the moment, however she is in my thoughts!
I'll donate what I have.
Moooo! what a movie . awesome ep,keep up the great work.
Just doesn't feel quite like Halloween without Jillian counting down the days until the 31st, Silver Shamrock style. =(
Hope things get better for you Jillian.
We miss you.
You could probably put that notice about Jillian on the front page of the site, or even attach it to the Jem & The Holograms Midnight Screenings. You'd reach more people that way! Hope she finds a new place and recovers ASAP!
As I said on FB, I hope Jillian gets well soon...
$ sent. Hope it helps.
Much love and thoughts with your guys at time.
Happily donated to keep Jillian off of the site. Keep up the good work!
"which is it baby? Spitz or Swallows?"
Good to see that I am not the only who thinks Halloween 5 is better than the 4th one. However, the second one made me uneasy before this one, but that mostly had to do with my fear of hospitals.
I almost spit my drink at the computer for that Nancy Grace comment.
So when will we get a review of "The Hitcher"? You have set it up to happend Snob.
Sorry to hear about Jillian. Hope things get better.
Not a bad film. Not great. But not the worst slasher of the time. AMC Monster Fest is doing a marathon of the Halloween series today and tomorrow. Good time to check them out if you haven't seen them in a while.
I'm sorry that I can't give $$ at this time - I'm also trying to get out of where I'm staying - but I can give a LOT of well wishes, a LOT of good vibes, and a LOT of hope that everyone here can give the same, if not more.
Jillian--you're strong, courageous, and better than what you're in now. You got this. We all believe in you.
Your videos from 08/18/2009 and earlier no longer work.
Honestly, I hated Halloween 5, I fell asleep after the first five minutes and didn't wake back up until the end credits music rolled.
So in other words you were so fucking lazy that you didn't even try to give the movie a chance. At least try to watch it and stop acting like that whiny little cunt who wants everything to be about themselves.
Happy Belated Halloween, Brad! Get better, Jillian!
The worst thing this movie did was blow up a classic Camaro.
Best of luck to Jillian, sorry to hear she's not having a good time right now... we are all with you, hang in there.
Awesome review as always, Brad!!
I'm clearly missing something here... This was a Snob episode about Halloween 5 with zero references to Jillian or any other aspects of Brad's life.
Brad edited the description. The original description basically said that Jillian was having some major health problems and needed to improve her living situation, and Brad was trying to raise some money for her via donations. He has since updated us and said that she is doing a little bit better. My heart goes out to her and I hope that all of Team Snob remain in good health.
Tommy Jarvis possessing the body of Dr. Loomis? That probably would've made for a better sequel then that other one with the cult of thorn.
Some of the older archived videos of 2009 were brought over from the youtube account before thecinemasnob.com was created, so please forgive the lesser video quality of such as some did not transfer well.
