AMC Fearfest is only going to be a week this year. Really a let down.

Thank the heavens for Syfy's Annual "31 Days of Halloween".

haha - yeah its a strange one - but im really into that stuff - i love stuff like el topo and southland tales [way underrated and much better than donnie darko]

one of my favorite movies is gerry and theres a really really long tracking shot of two guys just walking in the desert - so - i guess you could say i like watching paint dry

its probly not for everyone - but i really liked it - strange/subversive stuff

Re: Horror Film Discussion & Recommendations

Although not strictly horror, I did manage to catch a screening of The Killing of a Sacred Deer last night and it was particularly unsettling. Anyone familiar with Yorgos Lanthimos' previous works (Dogtooth, The Lobster) will still probably have no idea what the fuck is going on. I didn't. But I did enjoy the film. If it's playing near you, definitely go see it and then get back to me to tell me what it was about. I have theories, but still. Weird.

I'm watching that Exorcist TV show. It's not bad. I'm not really a series guy, but it's OK so far.

The original is awesome... see that ASAP. Heretic: Exorcist II was weird and pretty bad. I really didn't get it, but I was pretty young when I saw it. Exorcist III has some cool moments. I saw one of the 2000s movies, but can't remember it.

Re: Horror Film Discussion & Recommendations

THIS is truly horrifying:

In a confrontation recorded by the NYPD of Weinstein and Filipina-Italian model and aspiring actress Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, Weinstein is heard instructing Gutierrez to come into his hotel room and sit in the bathroom for five minutes and drink water while he showers. Gutierrez repeatedly tells Weinstein that she does not feel comfortable and asks him why he touched her breast the previous day. “Oh, please, I’m sorry, just come on in, I’m used to that,” he tells her. “I won’t do it again … I swear on my children. Please come in. On everything, I’m a famous guy. Don’t ruin your friendship with me for five minutes.” Gutierrez is heard asking to leave before the conversation appears to end.

Re: Horror Film Discussion & Recommendations

Okay...I am a total n00b. Horror films haven't always been my thing, but there are films that have horror elements that I like, such as Get Out. I'm also a little nostalgic for things like Halloween, Carrie, and Army of Darkness.

If I was going to start dipping my toes in contemporary (or classic) horror, where would I start?
(I won't do Exorcist or Paranormal Activity.)

Thanks!

Don't forget the classic 3 John Carpenter's:

The Thing (1982)
Prince of Darkness
In the Mouth of Madness

Re: Horror Film Discussion & Recommendations

I thought The Strangers was really really good. I like watching horror movies but I also have a hard time with them because I'm not into super gorey stuff or supernatural stuff. Plus a lot of them are super predictable and just kind of lame in general. I like the sensation of feeling scared, and movies that do that to me best are movies that are realistic, where I'm sitting there thinking "holy shit, I could see this happening". I think The Strangers is probably the movie from the past 10 years that has scared me the most because of that element.

Funny Games would probably do it for me too, I just haven't worked up the nerve to watch it yet, but I've read a lot about it.

The film was inspired by true events from Bertino's childhood:

"As a kid, I lived in a house on a street in the middle of nowhere. One night, while our parents were out, somebody knocked on the front door and my little sister answered it. At the door were some people asking for somebody who didn't live there. We later found out that these people were knocking on doors on the area and, if no one was home, breaking into the houses."

In interviews, Bertino stated he was "very impressed" with some of the theories circulating on the Internet about the "true events" the movie is allegedly based on, but said that his main inspiration was the true crime book Helter Skelter about the Manson Family murders; some have said that the film was also inspired by the unsolved Keddie Cabin Murders of 1981 that occurred in a small vacation community in California's Sierra Nevada. The film's premise has been compared by some film critics to the French horror film Them, released two years earlier.
