Predators will not kill them either, unless pressed. As witnessed in the original Alien Vs Predator when the predator did not kill Weyland since he detected the cancer (or whatever) in him.



I can't recall jackets or trailers getting me. I do remember being 16 and taking a date to Alien, at original release, and being so freaked by the movie I didn't even try anything with my date.

I don't remember the Alien trailer because I was only 3 at that time! But I love the sounds at the end of this trailer! Pretty damn scary imo!

Was 4 or 5, remember asking to rent it on video and it being a no go. But I also remember my brother and I having 12" or so Alien dolls that were remarkably awesome by the toy standards of the time.

Not sure why but it was Friday the 13th Part III that traumatized me the most, I didn't see it in 3D but I suspect some of the pop out gags particularly the skull crush were too much for my 8 year old mind.

'As Above So Below' I saw it, A couple of caveats, there a level of shakey cam in this and if you are claustrophobic this movie is not for you. There is blood but not creature ripped their heart out gore. There are supernatural forces at work and when things move underground things get weirder and weirder. If you didn't like the cave diving in "The Descent' you won't get into this.
Without really giving too much away, The story set up is a doctor is looking for something that an alchemist buried beneath Paris, there may be treasure, and the gates of hell are involved. Or it could be the real gates of hell.
Things start out slow ( in a good way) and when they go south they really go south. The dialog is very key to parts of this and it's important to take it all in, it will make things the less confusing. Things are not overly explained, so you will get draw you own conclusions.
It's good for a supernatural suspense movie, just don't expect a horror film. There is a good level of what the hell is going on suspense. I liked it. The film is from the Dowdle brothers you might know some of their work.

I don't care for the shaky camera stuff but I can tolerate it to a point. Blair Witch, V/H/S, and REC didn't bother me too much. I could not watch Irreversible. That one got the honorary "Oink" treatment.

I think tolerance of 'shaky cam' comes with owning a camera yourself. It becomes a novel idea of watching some amateur's capture of an event much like how we like to watch someone YouTube video of same. There's often more creativity in one of these low budget found footage movies than in multi-million dollar tentpole movies where innovation has been stifled by too many cooks.

I finished the 10 episodes of Robert Rodriguez's "From Dusk Till Dawn". My summation is that Rodriguez is good at making movies but not so much a TV series. Maybe a six rich episode series would have been just right as it seemed to run out of steam.

If you're showing a video documentation be a fiction or reality shakey cam is realistic. Steadicam would be nice, but usually isn't practical. Try climbing a mountain with one.

True Tales of Horror.

Last night we partied with the rival sportsball school. They had Bugattis in the house and didn't care if our kids sat on them. I waited all night for mine to snap the mirror off and bring it over like a trophy. Also, Tito's vodka is God Tier.

I had watched the first half of Sharknado-2 but then with vacation and some health stuff i never finished it.

But the other day i watched it, started back from the beginning. Totally loved it. I sat there with a big smile on my face the whole time. The ultimate in campy fun, and this one made great use of my home town New York which i really loved.

Now i cant wait for Sharknado-3, its coming in 2015.

never take life seriously

We watch Oculus and found it quite disturbing. The LFE in it is some of the best I have heard though my SVS subs. Pretty good horror movie. But disturbing in a way.

So far no info on location, wow, couldnt be better than New York, that was so great. We got NY and LA so far, where would you set the next one if you had a choice? Chicago maybe? How about Washington DC? I love that these take place in cities rather than so many horror movies that take place in the woods.

Z Nation

Series premiere September 12th on Syfy. I hope this is a good one. It has DJ Qualls in it so that's a plus.

True Tales of Terror

Best Buy is installing some modest surround speakers and some outside units today. He wants to customize my Harmony and reassign my AVR inputs. I will stake his ass for touching my levels. Just land the wire where I say.

If they handle "Z Nation" like they did "Helix" and a few of their other shows they may post the first three episodes on their web site and on Hulu. Then you wait another month for each of the remaining.
