Uhhh. Stuff that jumps out without thinking too hard, the first kill in The Bye Bye Man is pretty sweet. The falling head scene in Street Trash. Head rip from Hatchet.

I actually forget the first kill in Bye Bye Man, is it the thing that happens In The Past?

Weird, my Neca mask is heavy as gently caress and the cheap elastic straps barely hold it on your head. It's neat though.

To be fair to them, mine has been in and out of storage for almost a decade. Things have crushed it enough to basically snap it.

Also thanks dudes re: pictures. Iíve mostly been doing avp photo shoots but I have a Neca ultimate leatherface I havenít shot yet.really been meaning too. Maybe Iíll fire up TCM one night for inspiration and snap some pics

It would be neat to see you try to match some of the cinematography from it. Bit different than the neon stuff you normally do, which is awesome.

Savageland is so loving awesome. One of the best found footage style horror movies ever made. The use of music is outstanding as well and that, combined with the creepy photos the movie uses to illustrate the horror, is some of the most chilling stuff I've seen in a horror movie in a long time.

This movie really hits on why I really love Found Footage when it's done well. It doesn't have to be "OH MAN SPOOKY GHOST ON MY CAMERA I NEED TO FILM THIS PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW!" poo poo all the time. You can do awesome stuff with it and mess with well worn tropes in amazing ways.

MAJOR SPOILER!!! This is one of the creepiest zombie movies ever, dead stop. The photos are so perfectly done and make it even more terrifying than footage would have.

It's on Prime, watch it ASAP. It starts slow and there's a certain cheesiness to the beginning but when it hits the ground it doesn't let up.

I think we figured out that the opening of Argento's Deep Red(so the origin of the killer basically) takes place during Christmas season, there's a tree in the scene.

Other than that no, I don't think there were any.

Eh I've seen Pan's Labyrinth and it's definitely a pretty loving heavy movie. It's actually probably one of my lesser-favorite Guillermo movies, and I say that as a MASSIVE Del Toro fan. It's still great I just think a lot of his other stuff is better, with the Shape of Water being his magnum opus (so far!)

It's not a giallo per se, but it's what you'd call a proto-slasher, and "scratches the itch" is exactly how I'd put it.

I actually think Pan's Labyrinth is still his magnum opus, with Shape of Water being 2nd best.

It's a heavy movie, but I don't feel bad about a little girl in a horrible living situation during a terrible war getting to go to heaven where she's princess of her own fantasy world. That's a happy ending in my book.

Same with Jacob's Ladder.

edit: Fun fact, I've still never seen Cronos. I tried to watch it on Netflix but their encoding was hosed up and the movie was unwatchable. Another streaming service had it and glitched on me. Another time I couldn't get subtitles to work. I keep meaning to watch it, but no-go.

Yea watch Deep Red regardless, it's a must watch. In some ways I prefer it to Suspiria actually, it has plenty of vivid color too but it's a more grounded story. And it has Daria Nicolodi, which a big mark in any movie's favor for me.

Yeah exactly. I definitely need to re-watch it. I like the re-make a lot too, I don't know which one I like more. They're both fantastic even if the remake is weird as hell it has its charm.

I think that's more true with regards to the latter movie you mentioned. I mean it is tragic what Jacob went through in Vietnam, but at the end you get the feeling he is genuinely going to heaven or at least a happy "hereafter" with his son, whereas in Pam's Labyrinth there's always that question (to me at least) of whether the fantasy parts are real or whether they are just a little girl's way of coping with massive trauma They're both bittersweet and feature themes of tragedy and redemption, and both excellent movies.

It's an interesting mirror that I think Del Toro holds up in front of the audience and at the end there what I think we're seeing is a reflection of ourselves more than anything else. In a world that can be so hateful and unjust, do you believe there's something beyond that? Can an innocent person truly transcend their lovely circumstances and break free into a better world? Or is it all a fleeting vision that will blink out of existence as soon as the heart stops beating?

I've changed over the years and so my opinion when I watch the movie has too. And the entire movie is crafted to allow for that, which for me is the true genius of what Del Toro did with Pans Labyrinth.

Shin Godzilla is pretty funny, but most of the jokes are leveled at the bureaucracy and inefficiency of the government during a true emergency. The Godzilla scenes themselves are devastating but extremely badass.

Shin Godzilla is amazing. I believe that there is a US version of the film that removes most of the bureaucracy and inefficiency stuff. This sounds insane to me because that's like taking the Exorcist and removing all of the religious stuff so it's just a bunch of scenes of Regan swearing and screaming and spitting up pea soup without context or explanation.
