(I stick with old classic horror movies, cuz the newer ones gross me out with the gore)


German Expressionism is "horror" now?

(OK, so I guess it is "horror," but I still see it more as an art film)

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is considered by many to be the first horror film ever made. I haven't seen it so I can't really say if it's "scary" or not, but it was certainly more twisted than anything else of the time.

Saw Night of the Demons talked about earlier. Pretty dumb for the most part (although I doubt it was meant to be taken 100% seriously), although the scene with the goth chick dancing to Bauhaus was pretty good, and the Asian chick had nice boobs...

I've found that I usually don't enjoy horror movies...they either seem stupid or freak me out completely...

Enjoyed:
-Alien
-Aliens
-Alien 3
-Alien Resurrection
-A Nightmare on Elm Street (original)
-A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors
-Friday the 13th (original)
-Friday the 13th Part 2
-Halloween (original)
-Freddy vs. Jason
-The Wicker Man
-The Shining
-Lifeforce
-Planet Terror
-Videodrome
-From Dusk Til Dawn
-Sleepy Hollow
-The Wolf Man (remake)

Thought were dumb:
-Night of the Demons
-Killer Klowns from Outer Space
-Breeders (good nudity, though)
-Necropolis
-Drag Me To Hell
-Mary Shelley's Frankenstein
-Bram Stoker's Dracula
-H.P. Lovecraft's The Unnameable

Got freaked out by:
-The Sixth Sense (hey, I was young)
-The Ring
-The Devil's Chair
-Cube (not really horror, but certainly gorier and more disturbing than anything I had seen at the time)

EDIT: Hmm, looking back at this list, maybe the good have outweighed the bad in the end...

I've heard that said as well, and I never really understood why they said that. I mean, a full decade before there was Frankenstein in 1910. But I think maybe they don't mention that one because it's more of a short film. It's only like 8 or 12 minutes long, something like that. There's also L'inferno which is Dante's Inferno. But maybe they consider that more of a fantasy film.

Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is fine, I haven't seen it in a looooong time. The look of that movie is easily the most interesting thing about it, the paper sets, painted shadows, strange.

The horror genre is the one I think that is the most difficult to enjoy. There are some really great horror pictures out there and I enjoy a solid number of them, but it's the one genre out of all of them that's really run down and over saturated with really awful direct to video brain dead movies. And there are so many of them it makes it easy to hate exploring the genre.

Yeah, Cube rules. Well the first one anyway, don't really think much of the other two.

There's a really cool short film that the director of Cube made called Elevated. It also stars the guy who played Worth in Cube, his name is David something. Has a bit of the same vibe as Cube.

Night of the Demons.

Wasn't that impressed, really. It seemed to take close to an hour before anything really happened, and when it did, I didn't really care anymore. Glad I saw it but not one I'd bother watching again.

just a feeling I get. I guess. I don't know. Most movies that "I Fucking LoOOVE!!!" I really can't give a specific reason. I just like everything about that movie. I like the score, the look, the stereotypical characters, the Linnea, the music, the makeup, everything really.

I think we all process sound + vision differently. Sometimes it's not a matter of "this song is great because of the melody and timbre of the instruments" it's just it "hits you" a certain way. Yr brain and heart like it for some ineffable reason. Same with films. Why do I REALLY love Death Proof? Honestly, I don't know. I can list things I like ABOUT it. But it just hits me the right way. ANd I love it. Same thing.

No, you're right. It's obviously impossible to know what exactly makes a person really like a film. I just couldn't find anything to latch onto that might've elevated it above the ordinary. Still, like I said, I'm glad that I saw it.

Exactly my thoughts.. night of the demons takes FOREVER to do ANYTHING. It is so boring.. wow.

And yeah, Getting any? rules, one of the best movies ever!
