I feel sorry for the Millennials who didn't get anything out of this movie. Their loss I guess.

Hey guys, thanks for comments and questions about my bro-in-law. Not good, he has a long haul to go, and now we are fighting a second hospital move and also the insurance company. Too much to go into, lets just say my wife is going crazier than i am, and i am crazy taking valiums, advils for mouth pain from clenching my teeth, sleeping extra from depression, and so on.

Actually this is perfect for this month, my life is a horror!!! Not to mention my wife, who's life is a bigger horror, and of course my bro-in-law who is REALLY living the horror!!!!! eek.gif

As to the F1 stuff, everyone who follows it, dont give it up, boy, its one of my few enjoyments right now. Enjoyed practice this morning, looking forward to waking up and watching qualifying tomorrow!!

Oh man, if i had the time i want to watch old favorites like: Inside, Frontiers, House of 1000 Corpses, Devil's Rejects, The Hills Have Eyes, Grotesque, Cloverfield, Train, Midnight Meat Train, The Thing, Human Centipede 1 & 2, Event Horizon, Martyrs, Silence of the Lambs, The Shining, the Saw movies, Hostel 1 & 2, Piranha 3D, more and more and more.................

Guess i will continue my watching into November, but i still will try to watch what i can the rest of this month.

Not a random enough sample, too much film speak from the subjects and they did this wrong. Watch this movie in a darkened theater with a handful people in it go outside in the dark by yourself and the first sound you hear...You scared now?? Part of Halloween working is a big screen, smaller video screens deny it it's power, SAW works the same way.
Or make em watch Phantasm biggrin.gifeek.gifbiggrin.gif

All of that and having to fight the insurance company. Watch what you can when you can.

The good doctor not only seems to be looney tunes but insatiable as well. Slowly but surely, the body count rises. What's a good-looking holocaust survivor to do? The movie has:

Gratuitous injections.
Gratuitous sound effects.
Cannabalism.
Kabuki zombies.

I gave it two out of five bedpan zombies. I would have rated it lower but seeing your co-worker as a deranged doctor somehow makes it somewhat watchable. biggrin.gif
Kabuki zombies ?? Please explain confused.gif

That is horror... I used to joke about how bad healthcare is saying "just wait until its free", I can't imagine what it will look like by the time I really need it but sure hope the Lord takes me prior to. Blessing on your family buddy, very sorry to hear y'all are having such a terrible time. If things get really nasty reach out to the senator and assemblymen in your district, I've had good luck with that route in past problems that went unresolved when escalated through the regular channels.

I personally find the fact that you did not already own The Descent offensive, consider this a warning... one more and the banhammer cometh.

I got the triple feature from amazon today with Perfect Getaway, The Strangers, and The Last House on the Left (2009). I'll be getting The Strangers and LHOTL in for sure this month. My Mormon sister in-law and her boyfriend are over for more trouble tonight. He did bring a bottle of Jim Beam so I thought I'd repay them with House of 1000 Corpses and really make up for the "not so scary" Fourth Kind last weekend [insert evil face/]

I have the DVD. I'm watching the blu now and am stoked for the blacks on my plasma. It's been a few years since I've seen it too. That triple bill bluray was tempting I love all three of those flicks.


Have you seen Sanctum? It's a pretty intense man vs nature movie minus the monster angle but still really good.

I did and as much bad press as it got I thought it was decent with some pretty amazing footage. A Perfect Getaway is my least favorite of the three but I'm a big Timothy Olyphant fan and his character in that is just kick ass... his gal is smokin as well wink.gif

I generally like stuff like Perfect Getaway and will follow Milla off a cliff.

I think she is stunning to look at but other than the Fifth Element there is something about her acting that bothers me. She did well in The Fourth Kind as well but when she is in the RE movies for example it drives me nuts. Beautigul woman but something there has bumped her from my "list" of three eek.gif Perfect Getaway was a pretty solid movie I just remember the flashback scene to be painfully long with spelling everything out as if the viewer was Lloyd Christmas. wink.gif

I watched listened to The Descent when it was on FEARnet. It was so dark I couldn't see anything that was going on underground. Is the DVD any better?

Screenshot of one of the few underground scenes that I could actually see something:

This is at about 57 minutes on my recording (commercial breaks removed).

Have you?

I havent watched them this month, but i have seen them in the past. Grotesque is really one of my absolute favorites, i totally love it. Its my kind of movie, capture/torture/gore with some nudity, really done well. Inbred is just totally wild, some way out there concepts but i like Grotesque better.

I guess you could say that I have a thing for 'The Thing'! It was cool to do a marathon of all three movies in the same day.

Black Christmas was very good, I hadn't seen it for a very long time. I have never seen the remake.

I understand that Poltergeist is undergoing a remake but I think the release date keeps getting pushed back. That's probably not a good sign.

Yeah I heard about the Poltergeist remake and i am not thrilled about that one. I will watch Poltergeist today though and later The Conjuring.

On my old LCDRPTV, a Sony KDFE55a20, it was hard to watch. Not an issue on my plasma last night.

Do yourself a favor and rent or buy the BD. FearNet isn't the best PQ too. Highly compressed. When I had the channel I couldn't even watch it, besides the horrible ID/bug and pop-ups. (Maybe I'm thinking of a different channel in that regard, but not PQ). If you watch the BD and still have problems, then you need to calibrate your TV properly.

Sweet! Yum Chastain is starring in it too!



Speaking of Horror channels, anybody remember the Voom horror channel? I had that channel for a brief time and the PQ was excellent for cable/satellite tv.

Thanks for the input. You probably are thinking of the right channel, but it could also be Chiller. They both show some good horror movies but have awful PQ.
The Descent is going to be on IFC November 6th so I'll have a chance to see it in HD. I might even watch it on my plasma. smile.gif

It's really well done even if you aren't a horror fan. The moments of "digging deep" that those ladies portray are epic. I will say some of the effects looked staged on the bd but otherwise great. There's on in particular where red light floods a chamber and you get sense of the volume. Cool stuff.
post #7829 of 9794
45. The Descent. An extremely well made tale about a group of ladies who go spelunking in the Appalachians and are forced to dig deep within to survive and then meet up with an unknown adversary. This film is stunning in its brutality and is so visceral at times you can feel the mud on your own hands. My previous viewings of this have been on DVD but this time I saw it on BD on my relatively new plasma and very much enjoyed the black levels. 4.5 stars



This movie has:

Strong female leads.
Brutal and at times shocking violence that is not out of place.
My best experience with black levels on my screen, it was a treat to revisit this dark film.
Some realistic situations and application of knowledge.
That unique position of being a great intro to horror for those who are new and setting the bar for them as to what a "good horror" movie is.
post #7830 of 9794
"The Cloth" is a funky z-movie out of Texas with "cameos" by Danny Trejo and Eric Roberts. Apparently it was shot for 3D. It's on Hulu+ and also at RB. Two and a half broken crucifixes.
