This advert definitely feels like it descends from a proud family of PSAs dealing with drugs, smoking, and other harmful things that is overly dramatic and unnecessarily frightening. First of all, it seems like they dragged the first guy they saw into the studio to film this. To his credit, he looks appropriately menacing for the tone they are building up, with the fire burning in his eyes like some crazed copyright comic villain, albeit one that only appears for a handful of issues before much later returning only to be taken out by the Tally Man. Claims like "piracy funds organized crime" and "piracy funds terrorism" are pretty quick laugh-out-loud moments to me though, and I don't really know how an X-branding stick creates that much of an explosion on that stack of poor movies and CDs. Lastly, he seems to actually have a heel turn at the end by turning his "X" into a "C" copyright symbol, and will now use his explosive branding powers to fight piracy...? Alrighty then.

This advert was apparently on nearly every early 2000s VHS tape in the UK, Ireland, Australia & New Zealand, and even many DVD releases at the time. Despite its tone, it clearly was not the most effective thing in the world as is the case with many other anti-piracy ads, as it's just a fangless threat with not much enforcement behind it. I do like these ads for their goofy ways of tackling huge ideas and problems, but there are also better (albeit less fun) ways of getting these messages across.

Horror rankings side-track: I just watched Midsommar and god damn it's one of the best horror movies of the decade.

90. Betrayal at House on the Hill (11 points)

Another year, another board game I'll probably never get to play. I guess at the heart of things, I'm just really not a board game person even though I do find most of the concepts unique and engaging. This is one of the more popular horror-themed board games; I really like the idea of you being the architect of your own house of horrors, and the twist of a traitor ensures all games feel different and exciting. I like the packaging and presentation too, although I do find the actual game figures to be a little lacking in detail and frankly bland. Your fear rating with this one will largely be determined by how serious players are willing to take it and what extraneous features you bring along with it, but like most board games I can't really see this being that scary overall, but rather atmospheric and a little cozy too. Cool concept, but again, I was never much of a board game player and it just brings down the overall nomination for me.

I'm very interested in this movie but most of its supporters also seem to like Hereditary which I thought was legit awful. =/

Well, I'll tell you one thing, I'm honestly not that enamored with Hereditary myself. Like, it's solidly crafted for sure, the performances are top notch, but all in all I found the storyline and character motivations ultimately generic.

Midsommar however doesn't have any of those problems. It takes everything you might expect from your typical vacation horror movie and does everything in its power to destroy those notions and makes you feel as uncomfortable as possible with practically every frame. In my view it's also like a subtly artistic take on the slasher genre actually, and does play around with a few of those tropes as well.

Aw dang, was hoping for a little higher for a favorite game, but you are right that it isnt really scary to play.

Just a lot of fun and it uses a lot of horror movie plots and tropes throughout.
