    Always lurking on here to see what to watch next thanks guys. Anybody watch rebirth on netflix? It's a netflix made horror film. Im actually enjoying it. Kinda reminds me of VHS 2 segment of the Asian cult.

    Yikes, that story was freaky deaky (the VHS 2 one). Not sure I could watch a whole movie like that!

    No, but now I definitely have to... That segment from VHS 2 was probably the best horror I've seen in a long while. I even liked the ending that a lot of people poo-pooed.
    I mean sure, the demon looked absolutely awful. But the whole "PAPA" ending made sense because he was the father of the "child"... And I guess it got transformed through the ritual. Also, when he sees his buddy get executed and the cultist says something like "it was an honor to meet you"... well it's because he's the one who was promised, the demon daddy. I thought it was clever, at least.
    Plus I WANT A GIANT DEMON CHILD TO LOVE ME.
    That's exactly why I would LOVE to see a whole movie like that! I barely get freaked out by things anymore!

    I read that as "I even liked the ending with a lot of people poo-pooed."

    Thought you were watching some nasty scat chiller :?

    The girlfriend and I decided to go and watch Penny Dreadful since it just got put onto Netflix. WHY HAVE I NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE? Occultism, werewolves, Gothic-style horror.... It's making me realize how many more books I need to pick up on the matter.

    Ha, that was pretty good. It only really works because of the use of the cuts though and ambient music - well coupled with William's incredibly creepy looks at times. But it was cool to think of doing this 'remux.'

    Does 'Frank' count as a horror movie? because there were some parts that...if filmed in the right style...could definitely turn it into such.

    So random and weird, but I was able to watch "An American Werewolf in London" on the way back from NYC recently. It was one of the movies available on Delta. Needless to say, I enjoyed the flight back

    Well, I wouldn't think so, though it was a great film. It actually didn't leave too much of lasting impression on me, though, since I saw it not long ago, but really can't recall much of it. So, it may've had more horror potential then I'm remembering, actually. I mean, I definitely can see where a guy who goes around wearing a comical paper mache head could be a horror film.

    Do you know anything about the guy Frank was actually based on? He definitely seems interesting, but I watched an interview or two and I really didn't get it.

    I found out about the character/musician he was based on after looking up the Frank soundtrack and it was quite interesting. Gotta appreciate people who really get into their art. Bunch o' loons.

    If you are a "The Witch" fan I would suggest "The Wailing" next. Korean. Recent/Current. Over 2 hours. I think it ended a bit scattered but still a good solid horror film. Good acting. Good story. Painful.

    Finished the entire Penny Dreadful series the other day and I know it's been out for awhile now but it's definitely still lingering in my mind a bit. I really enjoyed their portrayal of a lycanthrope. It harkened back to Lon Chaney Jr's Wolfman, where it was more man than wolf. I do wish they played more on that ancient Egyptian angle they talked about in the first season because I mean really....The addition of a mummy wouldn't have been too difficult and it would have basically written itself.

    This is on netflix now which is cool because I couldn't find it anywhere else. Hopefully I can watch it this weekend!

    Awesome! It's not a spectacular movie, but I still find myself talking about it months later. If anything, it's worth watching just for the great costuming (really top notch) and Mehmet Cerrahoğlu.

    I enjoyed it. It took me aback a good number of times, and that doesn't happen much with modern horror movies. And the villain (Mehmet Cerrahoğlu) is effectively creepy due to his, uh, special circumstances. If I had to make any complaints I'd say the subtitles were kinda lame. A lot of "bro" and "dude" thrown in that seemed a bit silly. Also, the ending is a trope I'm getting a little tired of. Oh, the score was pretty darn good to, and the scene in the police van with them singing was fun.

    Just watched the Holidays film anthology on Netflix. Really cool. Highly recommended for you guys. Kevin Smith's film and the Seth Green one are both very good. The last one is my favorite though.

    My thoughts exactly! I think I've become somewhat desensitized to a lot of horror, but this movie... damn, did it make me squirm in my seat uncomfortably quite a few times. I definitely applaud them for that. Loved the singing in the van scene, it kind of set up a feeling of brotherhood among the characters despite their petty bickering. The end trope is getting played out for sure, though. I watched this RIGHT AFTER watching "Mine Games". Same ending trope. I was so bummed about that.
    Fun fact... before this movie, Mehmet Cerrahoğlu was a 40 year old car park attendant. :shock: And now he's an actor. Dang! I guess it's never too late in life to start a new career!

    Quote from an interview with the Director: "Mehmet Cerrahoglu has a story of his own. He had no prosthetic makeup on him; two different doctors in northern Turkey are still trying to get the patent for his unique medical condition, which is said to be one in 30 million. Nicknamed “Spaceman” in his neighbourhood, Mehmet is an amazing guy, to say the least. He’s 40 years old. He’s a car park attendant. He has three kids. I took a big risk in casting him as the main villain with no acting experience whatsoever. But he is a true, innocent artist in his soul. After I sent him the script, he returned with paintings of some of the scenes. I was flabbergasted. His art was like that of a talented 10-year-old, but the way he used the frame, the different tones of purples in the night sky and his raw attention to detail mesmerized me. I gave him DVDs of HELLRAISER, APOCALYPSE NOW, THE DESCENT and many other movies, and his feedback always made it clear that he very well understood the soul of those films. We ended up building the Father as a combination of Pinhead and Colonel Kurtz."
