Seeing as it's going to have really hot chicks dying brutally and it's still an Evil Dead movie, I'll be seeing it :-D

I'd be more surprised if it sucked than if it was awesome, since it seems pretty difficult to fuck up. I'm not going to get too excited, but seeing as Evil Dead is one of my favourites series, I am looking forward to checking it out. I really hope Bruce Campbell makes some sort of cameo :lol:

The original was campy, yes, but it was also visceral and batshit nuts unhinged, and ended up becoming one of the scariest films of all time because of its lack of restraint. I'll be surprised if the new one can keep that up.

This. The original was meant to be genuinely horrifying but ended up having a darkly comedic quality in the end which is what elevated it to cult status in a lot of ways and surely is what inspired the direction of the following 2 films.

I must admit that my knee jerk reaction to being pissed about it (like every other horror remake) has subsided somewhat. This will probably be the first remake I've seen since the TCM one and the first where I'm genuinely interested to see what they do with it. They just better keep the CGI to a minimum and focus on keeping the ominous atmosphere that permeated the first film. The original is a fantastic testament to the fact that you don't need big money and computers to make a good horror film, a lesson the current hollywood garrison could stand to learn.

They just better not fuck it up.

I keep hearing about these so called 'bloodsplatter' type horror films that seem to be popular among people into metal. Can someone recommend a low budget good-bad bloody horror film or two I can watch on halloween?

Dead Alive, Ghoul School, Maniac, Rabid Grannies, The Suckling(a.ka. Sewage Baby), Pretty much anything by Herschell Gordon Lewis, Ogroff: Mad Mutilator, Pieces, Microwave Massacre, The Abomination. I wish I could name more, but I've watched so many horror movies that my memory is kind of vague...

The Story of Ricky is worth watching too. Not a horror movie, but it's extremely gory and one of the best good-bad movies you'll ever see. Watch the dubbed version if you can. The horrible acting adds to the hilarity.

The director of the Story of Ricky made an excellent crime film, Men from the Gutter, by the way.

Cool, i'll check those out. I think the only true good-bad horror movies I have seen are easter bunny kill kill, evil dead 1,2, & 3; and the blob. All of those were good, but they weren't really blood and guts oriented. The only other horror movies I've seen aren't really blood and guts type horror movies. Just the all time classics like scream, nightmare on elm street, friday the 13th, hellraiser, it, the shining, creature from the black lagoon etc. You know, stuff every self respecting person should know. I was reading an interview of the band gorement where "splatter and gore films" were mentioned. I'm not sure if that's a genre on it's own but i'd be interested in it if it was.

The Shrine - 3/5

Not exactly great. I want to like this for the excellent setting, atmospheric coolness and the excellent gore, but it's just not a great film due to the fact that it is...well, stupid as hell. I didn't like the characters and the decisions they made were hamfisted and clearly just stretched to serve the plot. As a journalist myself, I can't really sympathize with the main character when she gets outraged by not being allowed to travel to a foreign country just to pursue a rather flimsy story - sorry, people randomly going missing in Europe isn't exactly newsworthy for a US newspaper when there are more pressing things. And I just couldn't believe how callous and uncaring she was about everything - the reaction just wasn't believable. Overall I did enjoy the suspense and the atmosphere this built up, but it's not great because I didn't care if the characters lived or died. Mostly just a curiosity.

Any recommendations on Premium Rush? I'm contemplating watching that since Looper is sold out.

Anybody know if Rubber (2011) is any good? It seems pretty absurd.

I recorded it when it was on that hdnet or whatever its called and skipped through 3/4's of it. There were a couple of cool kills, but it's not worth watching for it.

Watched a few good films recently:

Kill List: This is brutal. Watch this. Seriously. Kinda like "the wickerman" (the non-Bees version) crossed with "A Serbian film".

The whisperer in Darkness: essential for HPL fans. I was not expecting much, but it was really well done.

Bride of Frankenstien: not much explanation needed here. Best part was when my GF had dozed off with her head on my chest to be woken up by me shouting "ITS ALIVE!" along with Dr Pretorius.

Last days here: "Have you been smoking crack? Bobby, you sound like you've been smoking crack".

I heard talk about re-showing Pulp Fiction and Reservoir dogs in movie theatres sometimes in December to celebrate 20 years of Tarantino films or something like that... I may have to go see those. I have a strong feeling everyone in the theatres are gonna be quoting like half those movies though.

Troll. Not a good movie, but I liked it, because I'm a sucker for 80s fantasy movies. Also noteworthy in that it stars a (still) young Noah Hathaway, two years after he appeared in The Neverending Story. He's taller here, and not as cool, but to make up for it, you've got a young, hot Julia Louis-Dreyfus running around as a scantily-clad-in-leaves nymph or something, and a younger sister who's actually a troll, who has a soft spot for dwarfs (the human kind). A pretty silly movie, as you can probably tell, but worth watching if you like this sort of thing. I'm sure everyone's already aware of the infamous 'sequel' Troll 2, which has a perfect 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. These two movies have very little to do with one another, but you should see 'em both for different reasons. Be sure to have plenty of beer ready to hand either way.

I'm currently doing a three-part review of Troll 2 and its documentary, Best Worst Movie, for my blog. I had never seen Troll 2 before and it was just nuts...I mean I seriously didn't know what I was getting myself into. One of the most entertaining terrible movies ever for sure...just so goofy and full of laughs that it's impossible not to enjoy yourself when with friends ripping on it. A beautiful disaster of a movie.

Grave Encounters - 4/5

On the one hand this is incredibly retarded, but on the other, I admire its devotion to balls-out, throat-ripping, pants-wetting horror, and it has a lot more going on than any Paranormal Activity movie, for whatever that's worth. This is a found footage horror movie that shoots itself in the foot in the first five minutes - literally, the guy at the beginning is like "there has been no editing to this; it is all real," and then five minutes later you get superimposed newspaper articles and video-clips telling the story of the haunted asylum the characters are going into, that obviously would have had to be edited in. Uh, hello? Were you even trying? The characters are all silly and kind of annoying at first, but once the ball gets rolling about 40 minutes in, you actually do want them to escape - they're shallow and money-hunting, but they become at least a little likable. And the scares are seriously good. This is basically the equivalent of a really grisly, mind-bending haunted house attraction. The mark of a good horror film is how far it takes its themes and how much it pushes its characters to the limits, and for that Grave Encounters is legit.

The Innkeepers - 2/5

This is a brilliant romantic comedy film, but a poor horror film. For character development and acting, I would give this a much higher score, but I think this was really trying its hand at being a horror film, which it fails at. Director Ti West gave us the brilliant House of the Devil a few years ago, but sadly this is just too haphazardly constructed and directionless to really work...I guess it's trying its hand at being an avant garde/satirical sort of thing that plays with your expectations, as at first it's legitimately a comedic light hearted film centering around two charming and quirky characters in a hotel. But the horror elements, involving a ghostly mistress haunting the halls, are not well done at all, feeling forced in, lazily written and overall pretty weakly done. At the end of the movie I was just scratching my head, because it didn't really make any sense. I'm all for ambiguity and for trying some new things, but you have to try harder than this.

This is a warning to all movie fans: DON'T GO SEE SILENT HILL REVELATION. That movie is a giant turd. The dialogue alone almost compelled me to walk out in the first twenty minutes. It's cringe worthy, insulting to anyone's intelligence. Why I stayed all the way through, I'm not sure. Maybe I'm just a huge fan and couldn't believe the utter tripe that was unfolding before my eyes. Terrible writing, terrible acting, terrible pacing, complete disregard for the source material, plot points are haphazardly introduced only to be ignored, puzzling creative decisions, and a random monster fight scene because why the hell not? It's like everyone involved didn't give half a fuck.

^ That's somewhat disappointing since the first one was better than I thought it would be. I still wasn't expecting much from this one, but I do love to watch a good Sean Bean movie whenever I can.

The first one was a hundred times better. Sean Bean does almost nothing in this movie. He shows up, says a few really wooden lines (it's really an almost cringe inducing performance from him. I blame the script, I guess). Then shows up again for 5 seconds at the end. Uwe Bole could have made a better movie.

Someone mentioned Beasts of the Southern Wild a while back, just got back from it and what an excellent little film it is. Just full of warmth and life with none of the pretentiousness you would normally come to expect from an independent film. Parts of it actually reminded me of One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest thematically but encompassing a broader, almost mystical vision. Highly recommended (unless you live in New York and are sick of seeing floods).

Any of my homeboys seen Atlas Shrugged II? They jettisoned the entire cast and crew from the first. It looks on par with Titanic 2. Dunno where or who is even screening it; prolly Cato Institute on wheels, Oscar Meyer style.

Dunno how I missed these film credits:
Sean Hannity as himself
Juan Williams as himself
Bob Beckel as himself
Tamara Holder as herself

:lol: Bunch of fucking goose stepping mind manipulators.

I just started watching The White Buffalo again since I haven't seen it in years.

Charles Bronson is a badass and you know it.

There is no one more krieg than Ayn Rand.

Anyways, saw Last Days Here yesterday (Canadian Netflix sucks but it's pretty good when it comes to documentaries.)

It was an interesting portrayal of Bobby Liebling and his addictions, some scenes being very depressing (like when he's really high and talking about how he's convinced he's infected with parasites).
I wish there had been more footage of the reformed Pentagram though, it was kind of light on resolution.

Also, Stick (1985) is just such a favorite of mine. Great drug/crime story. I'm indifferent to Reynolds in all honesty but hes good in this, as are the over the top bad guy-drug dealers. Plus it has that cheesy Miami Vice 80s atmosphere where dudes get away wearing pink members only jackets yet still get laid.

Fun little fact, today's Godzilla's 58th birthday. It was November 3rd, 1954 that the orriginal Gojira was unleashed in Japan and would start a franchise with 29 films (I'm being nice and counting the remake) with elements of horror, scifi, action, fantasy, comedy and drama.

This just means something to me cause it was my first and to date biggest fandom, even more then Metal.

AHHH. I saw the first half...totally hamfisted and awful acting. Didn't even know they made a second one. You know, it has a neat idea and the setting and time period are interesting enough...but they fucked it up and not to mention the awful philosophy behind it.

And the sex scenes where you don't even get to see anything that are like, every twenty minutes throughout the movie.

Damn, didn't know that! I LOVE Godzilla. Maybe I'll just pretend like today's his anniversary instead, and queue up some of the big guy's flicks. \m/

I should also announce that Godzilla vs Biollante is finally being released again in the US on DVD and Blu Ray. This film hasn't been released in America since early 90's. I'm super fucking excited for this because this is my favorite Godzilla film ever, it's not the best film, but it's my favorit.

That's pretty cool, but the one I want released on Blu Ray or DVD is Godzilla 1985. That's always been my favorite, ever since I was a kid, and I only own it on VHS... with no VCR to play it on. =[ I understand that it's not a good movie, but so fucking what? Rerelease it!

I'm about to watch Fritz the Cat again, for the second time - neither time has been aided by any psychoactive chemicals whatsoever, perhaps unfortunately. A truly fascinating, if incredibly bizarre film.

Be sure to check out Heavy Traffic, if you haven't yet. It's even better.

A cryin' shame about Cool World, though. :ugh:

That's pretty cool, but the one I want released on Blu Ray or DVD is Godzilla 1985. That's always been my favorite, ever since I was a kid, and I only own it on VHS... with no VCR to play it on. =[ I understand that it's not a good movie, but so fucking what? Rerelease it!


Oh there's been a fight over the years to get that re-released, especially since fans want a US release of the Orriginal Japanese version, Return of Godzilla. Some rumors, but nothing close to beingg reliable.

Keep in mind that Crumb had little to do with the of Fritz the Cat motion picture--characters aside, it was almost entirely Ralph Bakshi's creation. And what a creation it was.

Anyone see that supposedly-terrible studio mandated sequel, "The Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat?"
