anyone a classic junkie also?
i love the classics even if they suck i still want them. i just bought "i spit on your grave" unedited which was ok.. and "the last house on the left" which was ok.. they both were known for being banned and scaring the shit outta everyone. too bad it was in the 70s! because nowadays the rape scenes and killing scenes are so boring compared. but i still love em.. i love the old psycho's too

More B Horror
As I was lookling on Deep Discount DVD today, looking for some DVD's to order on November 1st when i get paid, look what I came across?
Day of the Triffids!
It comes out on November 25, 2005.
It's an old B Horror movie I had on VHS tape, and I've been wanting it to come out on DVD. I was just saying the other day, when I bought Night of the Lepus, that I wished they had it on DVD...and I found it today!
Here's what it is about:
A meteor shower disrupts the earth's ecosystem, blinds all who observed it and awakens meat-eating plants. As the hungry foliage grow ever faster, a sighted sailor and an alcoholic scientist help save humanity from becoming plant food. Script originally credited to Phillip Yordan, who acted as a blacklist-era.
It was based on a book called Day of the Triffids, by John Wyndham. Simon Clark also wrote a sequel book, called night of the Triffids.
I LOVE B Horror movies, and I just got done watching the 1970's B Horror movie flick Night of the Lepus. I'm starting to celebrate Halloween early this year, as I don't have any parties to go to, or anyone to hang out with. I plan on dressing up as a "rock star," putting my hair in a faux hauk, and handing out candy to the apartment kids of October 31st :)
Here's a link to Night of the Lepus at IMDB
Night Of The Lepus
And here is a photo of the cover
And some trivia for you: This movie was briefly shown in The Matrix, when Neo first walked into the Oracle's apartment...

ANYONE KNOW THIS FILM???
So yeah, I'm trying to figure out the name of this film cause holy shit does it sound good.
My friend was describing it to me, and it sounds awsome.
So basically a guy and his wife move into this house, and one night while sleeping, theres a knock on their door. The guy gets up, and see's a tape sitting out on their front porch. Confused, he puits it on only to see the tape is footage of the outside of their house being filmed. The next night, same thing happens. Knock, Tape, Footage of the house. The following night after, a thrid time there is a knock, and the mane gets up, gets to the door, see's another tape. This time he puts it in, and it's now footage of him and his wife sleeping.
even typing that gave me chills.
Anyonew have any clue on what this is??? Current Mood: curious

Hey, I'm new here (don't you just love it when people state the
My name's Kristy, I'm almost 18 and I live in Darwin, Australia.
I love horrors (esp. slashers) and psychological thrillers.
Ok, I've got a favour to ask. When I was young I watched a horror movie
and I don't remember the title or any of the actors. What I do remember
is a vague outline of the plot: young couple (blond woman, dark haired
guy) move into a new house, renovate-> strip the walls, green moss
starts spreading up the wall in the shape of a man, the woman scratches
it and it bleeds. The house is possessed by the son of the previous
owner (who i think killed him and left him in the basement). Anyway,
the new male owner begins to go crazy or get possessed by the ghost.
Sorry it's so vague, it was a long time ago. Anyway, thanks for taking
the time to read this ;)
Also, I just watched Shallow Grave (Ewan Mcgregor), I liked it, just
wanted to get others views. Current Mood: tired

I'm planning on having a scary movie night with a bunch of friends and we needed some scary movie suggestions. What are your favorites, or ones that you have liked?
Nothing that is too gruesome and graphic becuase i dont think they all can handle movies like that. Just something jumpy, scary, with a good plot.
thanks so much!

I come to you for help
Okay so I've unfortunatley been very distant from Horror films latley. It's used to be me renting a new horror movie every weekend, making a journal critizing the negative parts and the positive parts in it. The last horror movie I rented was The Omen I believe, and that was over a month ago.
I need suggestions on a horror movie that will restrike my interest in them. I'm thinking about watching Scream and Sleepaway Camp when I have the time considering those movies are my two favorite that I own.
Any suggestions though?
I've seen a lot of the classics like The Shining, The Omen, Exorcist, pretty much most the very well known classics. But suggest them anyway just incase I have yet to see it.
Please no Zombie flicks either.
Thank You. Current Mood: blah

I just picked up my ordered copy of American Nightmare (i've yet to watch it), and i noticed on the front its got a picture of the directors that are interviewed and a still from thier movies...
On the Tobe Hooper picture its got a friggin' pic of the front of the texas remake!!!...
You would've thought when he saw the cover he would have said:
"erm i actually made the original version, you know the good one"
For a movie that celebrates horror directors, seems like a bit of a piss take, especially since the TCM cover is one of the most famous iconic images in cinema...
or is it just me?

Demons at the Door
this movie is very odd. the acting is not very good, and the story line isnt either. but this movie goes from bad, to good, to bad, then finally ends in good. its weird. i loved it by the end, its one of those C-D class films which you hate that you loved it.
also with the sound track having Insane Clown Posse on it, how can you go wrong!

Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Omen
This time I watched the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Omen.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre:I remember seeing this movie a loooong time ago when I was 9 or so, and always thought it was scary as hell and now that I watched it about 7 and a half years later, I gotta admitt it must have been the whole me being 9 years old thing. It really wasn't that scary. Despite of that, I thought it was awsome. A little quick pased as far as the deaths and story go. I must say that 7 and a half years ago didn't have any effect on my opinion of the new version of TCM, and that opinion still stands. The new version wasn't a thing like the new one. It was a totaly different movie all together...."it was a totaly different movie al together"(Airplane fans will get it). Was that the intetion? Anyway, I'd definatly recomend you renting the ORIGINAL Texas Chainsaw Massacre for those of you 3 people that havn't seen it yet.
The Omen:I have to be honest...this movie was boring, long, and not nearly as good as I expected. One guy told me that movies like Black Christmas and Scream were pussy movies compared to this(those probably being the closest movies to a movie that scared me). Then my mom was like "Sean if this movie doesn't scare you, I don't know what will!". Half way through it I was bored and not very interested. I just didn't find it scary nor could I get into it. I was so dissapointed...
I'll have some more movies coming up soon cause I today rented The Omen(though I just reveiwed it), Black Christmas, and Gothic America. I also rented Amityville Horror along with TCM a few days ago. I'm not sure if I did Black Christmas after I saw it, but if not I got q great reveiw for this movie. I looooove it.
Thoughts? Current Mood: bouncy

Halloween 4 & 5 and Silent Night Deadly Night
This week I watched Halloween 4 and 5 from my Halloween 1-5 ebay order(now I just need to watch 3) and Silent Night Deadly Night also from ebay(and I still need to watch SNDN2)
Halloween 4:I thought this movie was fuckin great! For not having Jaime Lee Curtis's original character, and trying to pass of a sequal without her, they did a good job with the little girl Jaime. I thought she was a good actress too. I thought the ending was great, and I dind't expect it at all. It left me completely confused, yet I had to see the 5th one right away.
Halloween 5:Halloween 5 seemed to me, to be even better then 4. I loved it. Through out the whole movie though, I couldn't get over how god damn annoying Dr. Loomis is. He keeps acting like he knows what will work to finally kill Michael, yet Michael has gotten away each and every time. Speaking of Michael dying, I thought how they played off Michael living in 4 was brilliant. And just like the 4th, after seeing Halloween 5 I now have to see 6 badly. Please don't spoil anything.
One thing I think they should have just done to Michael after a while, is transported him to a hospital or prison or whatever somewhere across the country, cause every time they'd hold him or "kill him" he'd come back, mainly on foot. If they put him in...washington or something, he wouldn't of had such an easy time getting back to his home town.
Silent Night, Deadly Night:Because I had stayed up the night before and had not slept, I kept falling asleep during this movie, but I'd either wake up and continue watching it, or press pause and go take a nap for a while. But from what I do remember of the movie, I thought it was pretty good. Not the greatest, but not bad. I guess it made sense and it was decent, but I thought the triggering of Billy's muderous rage, could have been triggered better. It wasn't bad though.
