Sort of a side joke is all. Typically most people look down on Horror and fans of such. Probably more than other genres. I did read through that thread and it was mostly positive, It Follows is pretty good flick IMHO but I know many horror fans that didn't like it for various reasons.

I meant that as a joke as well. I even signed it "Joe". I need to start using smilies.


I haven't seen "It Follows" yet so I can't comment on that one.

I saw that but wanted to make sure my intent was clear as to not offend. It Follows is not scary but it has so much going for it. Carpenter-esque soundtrack, interesting camera work, and a cool alt universe setting.

FWIW, I like mine to tell good stories, with decent writing and acting.
SFX and fake blood & guts isn't necessary.
Give me something new and I'm in.



I'm a bad role model, but, mmm...summer IS lager time.

If you don't agree with my take you are fat, drunk and stupid.

I've only ever made one angry remark on AVS that was directed at someone personally and that was over a human rights issue. It was a long time ago and it wasn't with anyone in this thread.

It Follows and The Lazarus Effect will be at Redbox on the 14th. I'll give them a spin next week.

I'm already fat and stupid. I'm drunk most of the time too. What else you got?

I don't think I've ever went after anyone in particular but I will vaguely call out horses**t and earn some infractions, not here though.

Soundtrack and cinematography are top notch. Its light on the story though. Too many unanswered questions. Still a recommended watch though. It was nice to see a different approach in the horror genre.

I haven't been watching movies much except for "Jupiter Ascending" the other day. Instead I've been catching up on episodes of the Swedish "Real Humans" (found on Vimeo) which is the basis for "Humans" on AMC. I'll check out "It Follows" next week when it comes to the "box."

MTV has a new horror themed TV series called "Scream".
http://www.mtv.com/shows/scream



I missed the pilot episode when it first aired last Tuesday. They are showing the pilot again tonight at 9:00PM followed by episode 2 at 10:00PM (all times eastern).
