Best opening scene is TCM with the narration, the camera flashes of the dug up corpse in the dark, to the corpse on the monument. TCM is also the best horror movie.

Also,
Jason Lives is the best.
Phantasm I-IV are all good for dif reasons.
Tom Atkins :love:
Linnea Quigley is best horror babe.
Bram Stoker's Dracula is a hilariously bad mess, but a beautiful looking one.
Suspiria is by far the most overrated horror movie, but a beautiful looking one.
Black Christmas is the best slasher, and better than Halloween by a lot.
Rob Zombie is just ok. Eli Roth has never been good.
Evil Dead > Evil Dead II

A lot of the time, Italian et al. movies were shot for English because they were easier to sell, so actors who didn't understand English were instructed to phonetically mouthe the English dialogue so the lips would match when they dubbed in the lines later. Many actors had no idea what they were saying, and if you were to hear the on-set sound of their performances, it would sound like incoherent mumbling.

Mancini is still supposed to be making a final movie and also a TV series. He retains the rights to Chucky, Charles Lee Ray et al.

Wait, so the only thing MGM owns is the Child's Play title and nothing else? How the hell did Mancini pull that off?

The movie with the most overt reference to Freddy being a child molester is, oddly, Freddy vs. Jason. Him being a diddler was never the point because his initial motivation in the movies is revenge against the parents who killed him, not creepy ghost lust. Otherwise, he'd just be molesting kids in the dream world and nobody wants to see that poo poo.

His motive gets pretty muddled around the middle of the series though, where he just enjoys killing and wants to kill as many people as possible for fun I guess. None of these long running slasher series can really maintain a consistent internal logic for very long.

There's really nothing like Henry. It's got a tone that I haven't really seen anywhere else. But something in the ballpark in terms of subject matter and bleakness, but with a more humorous bent, is Man Bites Dog.

Hey, just a heads up that the new season of True Detective premiered tonight and the first 2 episodes are directed by Jeremy Saulnier, the guy who did Blue Ruin and Green Room! I don't know if he's directing the whole season, but I certainly hope he is.

Also I got some pretty strong psychological horror vibes from that first episode. I got chills like crazy near the end. Reminded me a lot of Se7en. I've gotta watch that second episode.

Definitely did not think I'd be saying this show was good again after the poo poo second season, but that first episode was better than that entire last season!

Yeah it's good so far, but Saulnier left the show over differences with Pizzolatto, so he only directed the first two episodes. I'm worried that the rest will suffer from his departure. Hope not.

How do people regard Inferno? All the years I never actually watched Argento I always associated Suspiria as the film I HAD to see and then extrapolated out that the Three Mothers Trilogy was something I had to see (and in fact I'd say part of the reason it took me so long to see Suspiria was because I had it my mind that I had to see Inferno and Mother of Tears as well and it was a small miracle to find all three available or affordable at once).

Now that I've actually seen Suspiria it seems like Opera, Tenebrae, and Phenomena are the next big talked about films of his while Inferno is largely an after thought (and Mother of Tears seems regarded badly). But I've always seen stuff that suggests Inferno is really underrated. So I'm curious.

Basically, if someone hypothetically were to say "You have to see Suspiria" and you were to say "I have, but I'll watch ____" what would be the natural choice? Because I gather "Inferno" is the wrong answer despite it being my first instinct.

The thread consensus that it was a horrible idea made them back off.

Also, the worst thing to "watch" in a chill situation would be something far more boring than Serbian Film or Antichrist or whatever, because at least that poo poo gets your pulse up. I've dated girls who would've been totally into it, for better or worse. The worst possible fiction thing (so excluding Shoah) would be some poo poo that's just dead on arrival, like a bad Adam Sandler comedy or a Hallmark original.

From what I remember, Stanley was fired before Brando even made it to set. Most of his experience was bad circumstance, like Brando being delayed by a death in the family and a hurricane submerging the set. His awful experience with an actor was with Kilmer, who was apparently worse than Brando. Once Frankenheimer took over is when the shoot really got underway and became the Kilmer and Brando shitshow. I remember there being a quote from Frankenheimer about Kilmer like "I wouldn't put that prick in my movie if it were called 'The Val Kilmer Story'".

Can't wait for the Halloween expanded universe. They'll have a prequel involving Laurie's struggle in between the original film and the last one, where she's stalked by a Myers copycat a-la Friday the 13th 5. It'll be called "Strode". Then a Loomis spinoff prequel from the days where he tried to reach Michael before he finally gave up. Maybe they'll even bring Jamie Lloyd back where she teams up with Michael to see who can accumulate the highest body count before Nov 1, in an alternate timeline flick where 4 and 5 are canon but 6 is ignored, because gently caress it. So many avenues full of potential!

I don't like that prices have ballooned up just to gouge the collector's market, some maniac paid a few thousand dollars for a VHS bootleg of Black Devil Doll From Hell recently. As much as I love that movie (I own a VHS copy of it myself, but I only paid 2 bucks for it when my local mom and pop went out of business), there's honestly no reason for someone to be dropping that kind of cash on an old piece of obsolete media, especially if it's been remastered and resold on DVD/Bluray.

e: just looked it up, and it was Chester Turner's other movie, Tales From the Quadead Zone, that sold for a thousand.

One of the benefits of going back to my dead, hole in the wall hometown over the holidays is that there aren't enough people there to give a poo poo about things like tapes or retro gaming, so I picked up a Halloween III tape for a dollar and a refurb SNES with Tetris Attack for 35 bucks.
