    Just sat through Chillerama, if anyones on the fence abouts seeing it......DON'T! This movie sucked so hard. Not one of the stories was funny. The premise of the stories are great but the execution was horrible :cry: I had such high hopes for this.

    I just watched The Bitter Feast, and it's a smart horror film aimed at foodie's. It's about JT Franks, a food critic, who's let the travesties of his personal life, overwhelm his food reviews. Peter Gray is a celebrity chef, who lost his job, thanks to the help of JT's review. In turn Peter wants to help JT know what it feels like to be a piece of meat sizzling on the griddle.

    It was a really good film (especially for people who have worked in the food industry). It strayed far away from the realm of cliche horror, and entered into a new territory, the world of the angry chef.

    I give this movie 4 hot pockets.

    Time to resurrect this thread. So anyone have any newer suggestions horror movie-wise? I'm kind of tired of all the ones I own.

    ^ I didn't look through the thread yet but check out Red, White and Blue . It was on Netflix for awhile but I'm not sure it's still there.

    It's definitely worth renting/downloading/whatever if not though.

    Edit: apparently this might be considered a "Revenge Thriller", but that seems like a subgenre it's still horror as far as I'm concerned.

    Despite the fact that it's a VERY mixed bag, I still found The ABCs of Horror to be the most interesting "horror film" of late. Some directors obviously jumped at the opportunity to do whatever the hell they wanted within a few minutes and really outdid themselves, others disappoint harshly (Ti West, I'm looking at you). The segment by Jorge Michel Grau is by far the most disturbing thing I've seen since Martyrs.

    yeah I used to distinguish between giallo and horror but at some point I started lumping em in there ;)

    I had the sad realization this year that I can't remember the last time I was scared by a movie. I can get angry at bad filmmaking or occasionally grossed out, but I just want to be scared again! Oh well.

    Maniac was nuts. I thoroughly enjoyed the first person point of view, and it was done extremely well. You are very correct about Wood being super creepy. He was perfect for the role. V/H/S/2 was decent, I thought. Much better than the first one I'd have to say.

    also have to agree- i got to see maniac last year in theaters in spain, and everyone was going nuts. granted, it was a horror film festival. but i loved the remake.

    vhs 2 was no good in my opinion. i only like the weird asian cult one, minus the idiotic ending

    I feel your pain. I can't remember the last time I was scared via a film. In fact I can't even remember the last time I was spooked in real life. Sad.....

    ^^ I cant remember the last film that actually scared me but these two creeped me out quite a bit, and had me thinking about them long after i'd watched them:

    Kill List
    A Field in England

    Just weird, dark and unsettling little stories. Ben Wheatley is a director i will be keeping an eye on.

    Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask . . . . . . but,
    Has anyone read this book?

    I just bought it in a charity shop for £1. I had no idea he'd done an autobiography!

    I have this. It's a good read. He worked with a lot of famous people. I got mine very cheap from amazon.

    Had a terrible night last night. Came home early and put on Rigor Mortis. Took all my troubles away. Very stylistic. Ghosts, vampires, crazy people, albinos, monks, dark magic, kung fu. Fun, interesting, creative. Gore without being disgusting. Great acting by Bau Hei-Jing.

    Juno Mak's first movie. Can't wait for more!

    *Subs were a bit off meaning sometimes.

    So, I gave A Field in England a try yesterday, and would probably advise a general 'pass' for most folks. While Kill List established Wheatley as someone to watch, this was pretty much an exercise in film pretentiousness for me. At best, a nice looking film, with lack of any substance, but at worst, an extremely annoying exercise in film endurance. I don't mean to rip it apart, as I would still classify it as okay cinema, but even arthouse pictures need to be done right. He just reached too high with this one. I feel like he was just throwing stuff together to show off every technique he learned in film school - unfortunately there was no depth to back it up. I don't know if it was more failed execution of his greater vision, or if it is what he intended; and maybe I just missed it entirely, but in any case, I would say don't go into it without a strong degree of patience.

    I watched Human centipede part 2 last night. If your a fan of the first then by all means see the second one. I picked the dvd up used for $6 on Saturday.

    Interesting . . . i loved it.

    I must admit the story does wander rather aimlessly and the director seems a little self indulgent with his techniques, but i really liked it anyway.
    It seems to evoke a particular mood and if you dont like that mood you just aint gonna dig the film.

    Personally, i found the film refreshingly different.
