speaking of found footage woods movies, Sasquatch on prime owns incredibly hard. Probably one of the first found footage movies and imo as far as the search for bigfoot mockumentary genre goes its way more entertaining than Boggy Creek.

Minus the werewolf part, this is kind of what happens in Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2.

Counter point: Horror is pretty great.

Also, I have no idea why you put industry in quotes.

I mean, when I say horror industry I mean like the current big name horror directors/producers working ala James wan and mike Flanagan and Netflix originals that make serviceable derivative dreck with mass appeal and lots of blue filters. Those dudes suck.

I actually didnít really like lake Mungo because I found it slow and sad and not scary at all for like 99% of it, but Iím not gonna lie the big scene still got me pretty good itís a very well done scare. One scare doesnít make a movie for me though

I'm really into lost world stuff right now so more B movie stuff like that which is good I am down for.

The Day Time Ended is a favorite of mine just for how hilariously dumb it is. They really pull out all the stops.

Planet of the Dinosaurs is another good one.


Theyíre both bad movies but theyíre fun bad movies

This is actually a pretty funny statement, considering

Yeah I was gonna say Iím pretty sure the original Italian for any of these movies are still dubs, we just canít tell because we donít speak Italian lol.

Its also funny Tenebrae was brought up because I know they got the main actor to do his own lines (or at least dub his own voice) because I was immediately able to recognize him in some other film by his voice (I couldnít stop seeing him as his character from tenebrae)


Edit:
I went to the trivia page on IMDb to try to find out more and didnít see anything on that, but did find this interesting. I had no idea and Iíve seen the movie like 10+ times

quote:

In an interview that appeared in Cinefantastique, Dario Argento noted that the film was intended as near-science fiction, taking place "about five or more years in the future ... Tenebre (1982) occurs in a world inhabited by fewer people with the result that the remainder are wealthier and less crowded. Something has happened to make it that way but no one remembers, or wants to remember ... It isn't exactly my Blade Runner (1982), of course, but nevertheless a step into the world of tomorrow. If you watch the film with this perspective in mind, it will become very apparent." Argento later insisted that the film was set in an imaginary city, fifteen years in the future, and that the disaster the city's inhabitants were striving to forget was an atomic bomb blast.

Aside from Angel Heart, are there any great horror films about a detective/police officer who goes to investigate a mystery and finds something supernatural? I guess In the Mouth of Madness sort of works in the same vein.


I wouldnít call either of them great but Cast a Deadly Spell and The Resurrected are fun neonoir horror

Do you mean The Night Flier, because that movie is really loving good.

Looking for horror book recommendations, Iíve been trying to read more lately. I read The Haunting Hill House and We Have Always Lived in the Castle this week and really liked them both. In the past the only stuff Iíve read thatís horror related has been Steven King and I gotta be honest, I donít really like his books. So stuff more like Shirley Jackson and less like Steven King. What are some 20th century classics of the genre? I know this came up in the last thread at some point.

I watched The Editor, Fathers Day and Manborg and thought they were all unfunny garbage where all of the constant ďoh so randomĒ jokes missed and they looked like they were made by a bunch of friends with no budget or acting talent.

Perhaps theyíre just not for me, I donít know why I watched all of them to be honest


Iíve watched almost every single giallo, I just thought it was a bad movie

Re:noroi, I looked up the director awhile back and see the almost exclusively did mockumentaries which made me kind of wary of him maybe being a one hit wonder. Is anything else from him worthwile

Occult is IMO as good as Noroii, but is more blackly comic and less of a straight horror movie. His others are varying levels of decent to good but not up to the same level

Enjoyed how good the latter two were but only really found the first interesting for its cultural significance (and i was surprised jason wasn't it lol)

If your idea of good is Jason x you should be pleasantly surprised by like every movie in the series (itís the worst one)

The proper Friday rankings are as follows

2
X
7
3
1

5, 8, and 9 are trash and you shouldnít even bother watching them. Someone will undoubtedly come in here and tell you 5 is good, but it really isnít, donít believe their lies.

The 2009 reboot is decent enough and worth watching. I am a fan of Danielle Panabaker so I may be biased. I hear a lot of people dogging on it but frankly it probably fits in either before or after X depending on how forgiving you are.

There is that one later I liked with the cop but I forget which one that is. Its basically Hellraiser: Silent Hill.

This also describes Inferno (which is good [for a direct to video non Friday the 13th horror franchise entry] imo)


Also I just looked it up and itís the directorial debut of the guy who would go onto make Sinister and Dr Strange
