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.
I can weigh in on this for my first post, Love exposure is an almost 4 hour long epic from japan that is great on a sick day, it has almost everything I could ever think of in a strange Japanese epic. Religious struggles, cults, violence, awkward relationship dynamics, up-skirt ninjas, weird sexual fetishes and more, I recommend it. The Hangman, is an animated shortfilm retelling of the classic poem by Maurice Ogden I am not going to give anything away I just recommend anyone give it a shot. Noroi the Curse, is a found footage style horror film where a paranormal expert investigates a series of cases and that is about the most I will give away about it but it holds up as my favorite found footage film of all time.
Tazza: The High Rollers is a 2006 South Korean gambling film centered around the game of Goni. Great Characters, a fantastic soundrack, all around fantastic performances and oozes style. Lies, cheating, gambling, torture, getaways, sex, witty dialog, and packs a whole lot of punch although the sequels don't quite retain the magic.
Coonskin is an experimental animated film/ live action hybrid created by the crazy S.O.B. Ralph Bakshi. It centers around two simultaneous stories of live action and animation where the animation portions are a retold story from the live action actors. Coonskin is a hard sell to anyone it is abrasive, in your face and will probably test the patience of a lot of people but if you look past its lower budget, it comes off as a pretty cohesive commentary on stereotypes of many different races and identities and challenging political standpoints. It is violent, filled to the brim with sex and surrealism and it is worth a shot for people into more experimental animation. Although, a lot of you have probably heard of Bakshi by now.
mpd psycho is more of a miniseries since it is longer than the average film but I feel like it should be mentioned here since it is quite unknown and can still be watched in one sitting. Directed by the very creative Takashi Miike, it revolves around a young man named Yosuke Kobayashi hunting down the serial killer that killed his wife, because of his wife's death he suffers from multiple personality disorder. The twist to start the series is that he kills the serial killers but the murders continue and they are still being claimed by that serial killer. Have fun
Nameless Gangster is a 2012 south korean drama film starring some of the best actors in the South Korea. A man struggles to provide for his family as a customs official until he accidentally stumbles across a crate of a gangs shipment. He teams up with the gangsters and the drama ensues. Fantastic performances all around and an impressive attention to detail it trumps a lot of crime dramas I have seen from America for sure.
On a sidenote, A drive in I go to with my girlfriend all the time has a lot of terribly wonderful B movies they play on 35 mm that are just a really good time.
Witchfire is a 1986 "Horror Film" surrounding the death of a doctor of a mental institution. A women who is supposedly a witch gathers two accomplices to resurrect the doctor. Hilarity ensues bad acting abounds but it keeps your attention quite well despite it being almost impossible to find on the internet. If you can catch it I recommend it either a little tipsy or with some weed to take the edge off makes it much more enjoyable.
Kiss Tarantula is a low budget horror movies surrounding a bunch of dangerously deadly Tarantula's which is quite ironic but oh well it is the 1970's after all. Bad acting and camera work all around but a fun low budget horror film.
Chopping mall is a hell of a lot of fun. Eight teenagers are trapped in a mall being hunted by three killer security robots. Some surprisingly good practical effects and a ridiculous premise make this movie a really fun time over the previous two films.
I will probably post more in the future but this should get you guys off to a good start enjoy.
