I am not really into gory shit, despite the thorough cheapness of it being an attractive feature. I have always liked movies that try to achieve "real" horror and depress/fuck up the audience. Like some of those fake videos that apparently cause you to die cause theyre sooo scary. But I believe true horror has not yet been caught on film, at least not horror that I could think of. Some of the classics had it right- but still were too cheesy. I would like a film to encapture the true terror that it can, without the shitty cgi or slasher stuff.
Also I randomly found a trailer for this masterpiece, somebody watch it and say if its good
I moved this thread. Yeah trash films are very important to me. I just watched 'A dirty shame' for the second time. It was actually better than I remember it, though the first half of the move is still funnier than the second. It kind of loses a bit of it's momentum later on in the film. Yeah I've been trying to get organized to create a trash movive. I recently fixed my camera, and I know a few people who would act. I love the film Eraser head, by David lynch. I have not seen that worm film, so i cannot comment on it.
Reanimator 1 and 2 are both pretty decent, melodramatic but good. Jeffrey combs is a funny actor I think , he's in a few other movies worth watching like from beyond and was the voice of the scarecrow in the later animated batman. To macabre: have you seen NECRONOMICON movie? Its 3 short horror stories (a bit like the creepshow/tales from the crypt style) quite trashy but I liked it. The last one is quite fucked up. Also there's a move called daygon (misspelling) that's alright, also based on lovecraft obviously.
the new Alien Covenant reminded me of charlie and the chocolate factory for a few reasons, one of which is that the gore scenes looked kind of tasty. like liquid candy or a hot sour paste pouring out of the wounds with baby aliens. the aliens were actually pretty scary, but still I imagined they would taste good for some reason. I think I preferred it more than prometheus.
The scene with the dude fighting the alien on the ship while it was flying with the crane was a good scene I thought. also enjoyed the scenes of the planet-scape with the ship going down towards it. why did the captian look in the egg? anyway, we are familiar with the egg business
but it might just be because I had low expectations and wasn't excited to see it
I took some great photos of fly agaric last year but I dunno where they've got to. I picked a bunch of pine mushrooms around the same time. With the fly agaric, apparently you can eat them with no ill effects if you boil them about 10 times and replace the water. The alkaloids are water soluble. With the new alien movie I hear its pretty bad. Apparently someone gets some alien blood on them and it only leaves a minor burn, which doesn't make much sense when you consider its been established in past films that the blood can melt through metal in a few seconds. A friend of mine was speculating that had they made the Prometheus triolgy as was planned, that might have been more interesting to watch, but since the first Prometheus flopped they just decided to rehash the earlier alien movies as a safer move (they still have a contract to make a few more), it's an unnecessary cash grab I think, because the first 2 alien movies are great (for different reasons) anyway I recently watched a movie called "screamplay" from 1985. I'm trying to get ideas to write a movie, anyway I thought it was quite good. Its sort of a black comedy about hollywood. I'd definitely recommend it.
