What a cool fecal, freak, flick, Septic Man!

I like to think people who stop posting had some magical enlightenment about the internet being dumb and they are on their front porch surrounded by the life they want with one less stress.

Airboss...this is for you. Until you return.

I think we can pretty much assume any of those listed above have larger life events taking priority. I enjoyed posts from all mentioned so hopefully it's like darth said and they have found travel or other outdoor interests that have taken them away from activity on AVS.

Septic Man looks very cool. Good pedigree there.

If anyone cares, my local Target accepted the $5 coupon for WWZ (direct key override). YMMV.
post #6368 of 9789
No one saw more movies than Airboss... and he had pretty good taste too.

This is starting to feel real, guys...I may have to stay working on my list. Not that I ever stick to it strictly!

Yep, Airboss was the king of October when it came to sheer volume of movies watched. If I recall, wasn't he in the middle of moving between houses and had some personal stuff going on that prevented him from participating last year?

Lwright......another guy that is certainly missed. Thread starter extraordinaire.

TPBTP is a slow mover that requires you to tackle the whole thing so that you can be "rewarded" with how all the stories are interlinked.


Another guy missing is Fenders. Wonder where he has been. Although pretty abrasive at times, he added some flare to the thread. Pretty big horror movie buff if I recall. Used to frequent the projector forum as well.

B-Mac, you're absolutely right.......sh*$'s getting real around here. Two weeks away........cool.gif

That is my recollection too.
post #6371 of 9789
I may actually make a list this weekend, it would be a first.
post #6372 of 9789
I'll make my list too. So there. wink.gif
post #6373 of 9789
I'll skip "Septic Man." Probably because I have to deal with other people's...you-know-what every day at work. wink.gif
post #6374 of 9789
These appear to be the last posts from Airboss in this thread so I guess my memory was correct and AVS records are wrong... sorry Larry redface.gif It appears he watched 2 days of movies last October and then vanished? These posts were October 1, 2, & 3.

But on this one day he picks up a woman and her 9 year old son Tim. Bob kills Tim's mom and then makes Tim live in the house with him all while he keeps killing women. Tim grows up there, watching, seeing all that happens. Bob wants to make him his protégé. Will Tim carry on the legacy?

The first act grabbed me and pulled me in but sadly halfway through the second act it started to lose me. Fortunately all hope was not lost as the third act pulled me back in and tied things up with a bit of a twist thrown in. This one is a slow burner with limited blood and gore.

2 1/2 Zombies

2. Entrance - ENTRANCE is about the limits of our perception, how the things lurking on the periphery of our lives can lead to horrific conclusions; about how she fell out of love with the city, but it wouldn't let her go.

A very very, slow burner. It takes a good fifty minutes to start to get going but I found it worth the wait (many won't). I loved the very last shot of this film.

3 Zombies

3. Scary or Die - This horror anthology has five short films. Zombie action takes place by the Arizona-Mexico border in "The Crossing". "Taejung's Lament" follows a man in mourning for a lost love and his reward for a good deed. A hit-man has a tough job in "Re-Membered". "Clowned" tells the tale of birthday party entertainment gone wrong. "Lover Come Back" reflects on the power of true love.

Entertaining in a vein similar to 'Tales From the Crypt' or 'Tales From the Darkside'. Out of all of the stories I liked 'Clowned' the least, it was a bit too long and very predictable.

2 3/4 Zombies

4. Fright Night (2011) - A teenager suspects that his new neighbor is a vampire.

Remake of the wonderful, cliché ridden 1985 masterpiece 'Fright Night'; which I never tire of and will be watching later this month from my signed, limited edition Blu Ray disc.

3 Zombies

5. "La chambre des morts" (Room of Death) - While on a joyride with the headlights turned off, two men hit and kill another man carrying a satchel full of money. The two men decide to take the money and throw the body into a pond and bury the money in a coal hill. The next morning the police discover the body of a kidnapped 12-year blind girl, Melody, in a warehouse near the site of the hit-and-run.

Inspired by 'The Silence of the Lambs' (there's even a little nod to it with the main character having the novel on her bookshelf) this French horror/thriller (more thriller than horror though) was my best film of the day. Go into to it was no more information than what I've said above and let the film pull you in.

3 1/2 Zombies

I watch one more movie that I thought was a French Horror/Thriller but actually turned out to be a French Thriller/Suspense film therefore it really doesn't fit our horror list. It was such a great film though I thought I'd mention it in case someone needs a break from the horror genre. The name of the film is 'La cara oculta' (The Hidden Face) and is about a Spanish orchestra conductor named Adrián (Quim Gutiérrez) who receives a video message from his sweetheart Belén (Clara Lago), in which she breaks up with him then suddenly disappears. The less you know about this film before you view it the more you will enjoy it. Overall this was my best movie of the day with a rating of 4 stars (stars vice zombies since it doesn't fall within the zombie ratings category).

Count Thurzo imprisons the Countess in the tower of a monastery and brings her daughter to live with him. In the present days, Keith is writing a book about Countess Elizabeth Bathory and traveling through Hungary with his friends J.J. and Kim researching her life. While trying to find the monastery, he meets the gorgeous and seductive Elizabeth, who guides the trio to the place. Keith and Elizabeth fall in love for each other, and after a car accident, they have a supernatural journey with revelations and fatalities.

This was on cable yesterday so I though I'd go ahead and watch it.... all I can say is I'm embarrassed to admit I did not change the channel but stupidly watched the whole movie. What a waste of time!

1 Zombie

7. Sennentuntschi: Curse of the Alps - High in the Swiss Alps, a thirty-year-old murder mystery unfolds. While picking mushrooms, a little girl sees a strange boy, shining a mirror for her to uncover a skeleton under the fungi. When the police determine the boy went missing in 1975, the sordid tale of Sennentuntschi unfolds.

Sennentuntschi is an Alpine legend about three lonely herdsmen who were so starved of female companionship they built the girl of their dreams from a broom, some straw and a few rags. Then the Devil took pity and made Sennentuntschi live and breathe so she could cook, clean and look after them. But when they started treating her like a common whore, the revenge she took was so horrific the locals still shudder to this very day.

This was an interesting movie, a bit confusing at times, very limited blood, gore, etc and not really scary at all, similar to Jack Ketchum's "The Woman" but with a twist.

3 1/2 Zombies

8. The Possession - A young girl buys an antique box at a yard sale, unaware that inside the collectible lives a malicious ancient spirit. The girl's father teams with his ex-wife to find a way to end the curse upon their child.

This has a pretty good rating on IMDB but for me it was pretty lame.

2 1/4 Zombies

I will really miss the guys mentioned above if they dont participate in October, i just hope they are all well physically.

I get scared since on another forum, two of the really main guys stopped posting, and ultimately we found out the worst happened. So sad.

As I get close to pulling the trigger on a new phone I'm considering doing one of those custom case mate cases with... you guessed it... some awesome vintage horror art. Gotta keep it somewhat decent due to the kids and professional environments but...

Watching The Roost right now on Chiller Channel. Completely forgot that this was Ti West's first film (at least I think it was). Will likely cut it off early just because its 4:3, however, I queued it up for next month.

Cold Prey Review

This was a pretty good Norwegian Teen Slasher.

With every Slasher Movie there are instances where it becomes completely implausible, which is why I rarely watch 'em.
This movie is no exception....
Fortunately, it only happens a couple of times and I, because of its excellence in other areas, could let it slide.

Nothing really original with the story or plot here, but it is very well put together and it drew me in.
Also, the acting is terrific.

FWIW, the SQ and the Sound Design is excellent on the DVD.

3 of 4 frozen zombies.

I think I remember watching this one but cant recall what I thought of it redface.gif

We watched World War Z tonight via Vudu... I will be adding this to my collection. I pretty much agree with Ralph's review and while it really didn't lend the viewer any character depth or complex plot-line it was paced with such exquisite tension it really made for a fun and entertaining ride. I would not call it horror, more of an action thriller but worth a rent at minimum.

Actually, the records are correct, but due to a loose nut on the keyboard they were read incorrectly. His last access date was Nov 12, 2012 from up here in New England. Send him an email via AVS (if it's setup).

I got in the WWZ 3D BD pack last night and I was tempted to watch it. I think I might watch it this afternoon while the kids sleep.

I had this on DVD and it wasn't even in anamorphic. It's not even that old. Unacceptable!

Kenobi Is the Vudu version unrated? If not I wonder if it's worth heading to Redbox.

Did you watch the extended cut? I saw it in theaters about 2 weeks ago, liked it, and when I noticed the Blu-ray would include an unrated extended version I liked it even more. With that said, the more *cough* "intense" footage (as stated on the packaging) apparently only adds a few sequences supposedly with more violence. While it's true to a degree, I would have liked, at the very least, RED blood instead of the lame black thing that looks like anything but blood. What a joke!!! mad.gif ....However, the film was just as good as the first time smile.gif

Despite what I said above and having seen both versions, the unrated cut is still the way to go imo.
