Does anyone else prefer Creepshow 2 to the original? Chief Wooden Head is kind of a clunker but The Raft and The Hitchhiker are both fantastic and the animated parts are primo 80s cheese.

I think you're definitely in the minority there but I do love Creepshow 2. I just consider Creepshow to be one of the two or three best anthologies ever made so it wasn't going to be easy to top it.

I think the real decider is that Creepshow has 5 segments, which for me is a lot better than 3. When you only have 3 they tend to drag.

For me the original may have more but none really stay with me aside from the asteroid one and the cockroach one and even then both only for certain shock scenes. The Raft and Hitchhiker are both longer but are legitimately much creepier and scarier than anything else in that Creepshow has.

Really my only major issue is Chief Wooden Head which has good moments and a great villain but drags on WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too long. The part at the start with the old couple could have easily been cut by at least 5 minutes.

You'll get a lot of people who will say the Ted Danson/Leslie Nielson segment is their favorite so yea, Creepshow is definitely one of the most consistently good anthologies ever.

Has potential, and a couple of the segments were genuinely good, it has solid fx work, but it suffers from a tiny budget, uninspired cinematography, and some reeeeally bad/lazy writing in a bunch of eps.

Almost went with Romero for #3, but couldn't keep pushing The Dark Half out of my mind.

What are some movies you'd recommend from Kiyoshi Kurosawa? I loved The Pulse, does anything else he's done have that same feel?

FreudianSlippers posted:

Miike is definitely worthy of a spot but he's made a 100+ films and only a small portion of them are horror. I've heard that in Japan he's even better known for his crime films than his horror stuff.

Which raises the question of whether he's a horror director.

Yeah I think Miike's probably best know for his action stuff (Dead or Alive, etc). Although they still have a lot of the over the top gore he's kinda known for, reminds me of a lot of the Korean revenge films in that way.

And as others have mentioned, if you're allowing for people who have done few horror movies Hitchcock is the best (The Birds and Psycho are both great horror entries regardless).

mikeycp could probably give a better answer than me on this, as I havenít been able to find more than a handful of KKís films, but Loft/Rofuto has a similar feeling of isolation, though not to nearly as high a degree as Pulse. Creepy gets kind of goofy, but has some unnerving moments, and Sweet Home is a pretty basic haunted house story thatís still notable, thanks to its style and for being one of the first videogame tie-in films.

Doppelganger is on Tubi, so I need to get around to that, and I hear good things about Cure, though I havenít tracked down a copy.

I ended up turning off Tammy because it was the PG-13 cut and I am on a spending freeze for a while so no shudder.

Get wasted, and it might make a little sense.

You are in for a loving trip regardless.

e: on the weird coincidental topic of psilocybin, A Field in England has probably the second best depiction of actually tripping in cinema.

Hereditary had very good acting behind a tight narrative. Midsommar, in my opinion, had beautiful sets and pieces, but was sprawling to a fault.

Both are good and each one have a particular appeal.

I like Hereditary and Green Room more.
