However the Asylum guys who do some of these films need to spend more than two days on the script (they actually bragged about that in a commentary).

"Being Human" BBC edition starts its final season tomorrow night on BBC America. Probably censored and if you've ever watched the BBC series on NF WI you'll know how much. Backward America.

I'm not above dumb but I like quality. Manborg. That's where it's at.

Need a recommendation from you guys on something I can access on either Netflix streaming, Amazon Prime or Redbox. Looking for something really scary tonight that will scare the pants off the wife...
post #5343 of 9774
A few favorites I have saved in my NF streaming right now:
Pontypool
Session 9
House of the Devil
I saw the Devil
The Serpent and the Rainbow

I don't do redbox and have not searched prime horror on amazon lately. Good luck!

Pontypool Almost watched this one a million times.
Session 9 Seen this one and remember it being pretty good.
House of the Devil Seen this one and was a bit let down but decent.
I saw the Devil Possibility, heard of it but never seen it.
The Serpent and the Rainbow Wow, it's been a long time since I saw this one, might have to check it out again!

I don't do redbox and have not searched prime horror on amazon lately. Good luck!

Thanks!

The Woman.
Prince of Darkness.

Two I'd add real quick.

Yes, The Woman is a must, I've had that in my queue and on my list of flicks to buy since I first saw it... but I wouldn't call it scary. I Saw The Devil isn't really scary either, not horror but horrific if that makes sense. I promise it will disturb you and the wife and keep your heart rate nice and elevated, that's the one I'd go with unless you are really feeling the haunted house/ghost story thing tonight.

Chicks dig The Woman.

Not really scary but these are some favorites on instant. I didn't realize how slim the selection is these days. Yuck.

Stake Land
Re-Animator
Rosemary's Baby
Exit Humanity


A shame Freaks isn't available since today is Todd Browning's birthday. Gooble gobble!

That one is burned into my brain permenantly!


I like the artwork Morpheo, good stuff!

I really want to see if I can hold out for October to watch the Evil Dead but I think If I can get it on RB next week I'm will be watching that. Also lots of great suggestions for some horror tonight, I should dig through Amazon prime to see if there are any horror gems to watch.

Inside. Whoa.

That hardly says it but its a start. One helluva flick and you can never unwatch or really say "oh yeah, I remember seeing that one".

Speaking of re-boots, re-makes, sequels, etc. I took my own advice and started watching Serpent and the Rainbow tonight, for some reason the mood just struck, but I noticed this is a film begging for a remake. The voodoo genre is severely untapped in the horror world (excluding The Skeleton Key which I loved) and while this was a fantastic effort it was all but ruined with the cornball boss fight crap at the end. I'd love to see this in the hands of maybe an Guillermo del Toro in collaboration with maybe Eli Roth and Ti West? At any rate it is a story in need of being re-told in an even more gruesome, gritty, and stake to the heart fashion but the writing and character development has to be spot on to compete with the original. Despite it's flaws in the last 20 minutes, the rest of the film was really brilliant and done with a finess and atmosphere that you'd expect from Wes Craven's early work.

Found a nice little gem last night on Amazon called 'The Pact'. Slow burn ghost story that really picks up steam in the middle and the end of the movie. If your in the mood for this type of movie or want to watch something with your spouse, that doesn't have a ton of gore (movie has some blood), than this movie is for you.
post #5355 of 9774
Watched I Saw the Devil last night,good flick. Anyone seen Borderlands?I put it on my Vudu wishlist.It's been awhile since I watched Serpent and the Rainbow.Thanks for the reminder General.

I stumbled upon a great lil horror last night called, "Baby Blues".....  Definitely not for everyone due to some of the content, but this one will stay with me for awhile....

250 posts and a small portion of my Sat morning.........and I'm all caught up. cool.gif Damn, this thread gets a lot more action than it used to. We used to log in at the end of the summer to get some chatter rolling and go until mid November. Very cool, although its tough for me to keep up.

All the forum hype compelled me to order this for $12 on Amazon Prime (Blu-ray). Planned on waiting for Oct, but you know how that goes. Anyway, it was solid. Not the best horror flick I've seen recently but still collection-worthy.

Absolutely. Never heard of it until now, but I'll definitely be going the next time I visit my buddy in Vegas.

Really enjoyed Sinister as well. I'll either be buying it or renting it in Oct for a second watch.

Pretty funny you should mention this....... but it was a boring Fri so I watched Porkys on IFC last night. Its a classic IMO. I remember talking to my wife about how funny I used to think the Porky's series was and about 6 months after that conversation, guess who got the 3-Disc Porky's collection as one of his birthday gifts?? cool.gif

That they do. My wife and I love that movie.



Haven't posted much lately but rest assured that I've been meeting my quota of "horror" flicks. Here's a little list of my recent ones.

Warm Bodies
Stoker
The Last Exorcism 2
American Mary
Hansel & Gretel
Dark Skies
Beautiful Creatures
Texas Chainsaw
The Collection

Hands down, Dark Skies was my favorite. I was in San Fran for a little vaca last month and hit up Rasputin for the first time. Great spot!! Walked out with Battle Royale, A Masters of Horror installment and The Dead One (the Blu-ray was like $4 and we thought it would be funny to see Wilmer Valderrama in a horror flick). All 3 of these will be saved for Oct.

I need to be sold on Stoker.
post #5361 of 9774
Stoker was actually pretty decent. Cinematography and sound effects were very original and fun to experience. Don't know that I would really call it a horror movie. It was more of a thriller with some supernatural elements to it. I would say that its worth a watch just to see something out of the ordinary.

I should add that Warm Bodies (even with its romantic storyline) is a pretty good flick for those who are into the zombie genre.
post #5362 of 9774
FYI, I've noticed that VUDU has VHS2 now at $6.99 if that helps anyone (I'll stick it out for regular price which may well be followed with it just being on NF). Amazon still has it for $9.99. I watched VHS at rental price and two weeks later it was available on NF WI.

I'm actually seeing generally positive reviews for Warm Bodies from trusted sources and I'm warming to it.

Warm Bodies has an element of humor thrown in; nothing really scary to see (IMO), but it's a nifty little film.

That's what's cool about horror, doesn't have to scare you to be fun and it's ok to like different stuff at least for me it is. There are those here who would argue that and insist you shoebox yourself into their line of thought or be burned at the stake. smile.gif

It just needs to be well done. Whatever horror angle, the movie just needs to show it cares. Sick of crappy ass flics that I swear the director hates himself, and life, because he can't care enough to make a film without unbearrable crapiness in it.

The Pact was pretty tight.
Exit Humanity is a big WTF to me. The first half hour was hard to take it serious with the period stuff, but it just keeps coming and was a really well done flic
The Woman, the Dad is my favorite character for movies I have seen this year.

The Collector was one of my surprise hits from October last year and the Collection will be saved for October as well.

I did Blood of Satan last night. 1977 flic, and what a trip. You watch star wars and it does not seem like it is as old as it is. You watch this and is like something from the 60's. Opening scene and the wife is 4 months pregnant and wants to go dancing but the husband is "NO WAY, HONEY, WE'RE NOT TAKING ANY CHANCES WITH OUR LITTLE FELLA". He then proceeds to let her smoke for the rest of the movie, drink copious amounts of wine and be involved with a little wife swapping. (because it's a Euro horror flic) Cracked me up...tongue.gif

The "new" Tomb Raider has some survival horror elements.

Personally no. TV takes a back seat all year for me.
