Horror Talk / Re: Up Against Amanda (2000)
« on: Today at 01:06:27 AM »
I've never heard of this one, but wanted to mention that I've rarely watched actual thrillers without horror elements. Off the top of my head, the only thrillers I can remember seeing are Strangers on a Train, 1951, Rear Window, 1954, Cape Fear, 1962, Play Misty for Me, 1971, The Hand That Rocks the Cradle, 1992, and The Crush, 1993.

Have to admit, I don't have much a desire to watch any others, but I do appreciate the fact that you throw on representatives of other genres on here (action, fantasy, thriller) that I often overlook. [*thumbsup*]

Horror Talk / Deep Red (1975)
« on: Today at 12:49:08 AM »
There's very little about Deep Red that I didn't like. It had a fantastically fun and engaging mystery, solid characters, some pretty brutal deaths, suspenseful sequences, and a great score. This is a great giallo, and a very engaging film (at two hours and seven minutes, I was never once bored). One of Italy's best.

What are your thoughts on this Italian classic?

Horror Talk / Delusion (1981)
« on: December 08, 2018, 11:56:07 AM »
Though little-known, this early 80's flick has the sensibilities of a 70's movie, from first-person narration to a somewhat dry, rather serious in tone, story. That said, I had a lot of fun with this, though the kills were rather weak. Still, I got a really blast out of the ending, and I'd say this warrants a rewatch sometime down the line.

Have you happened upon this flick?

Horror Talk / Re: Embrace of the Vampire (1995)
« on: December 06, 2018, 08:57:00 AM »
I have it from another horror friend of mine that it's some of the best nudity he's ever seen, so if you give this a watch, let me know your take on it. [*browwink*]

Horror Talk / Embrace of the Vampire (1995)
« on: December 05, 2018, 10:40:29 AM »
While the solid nudity in this film (much of it from actress Alyssa Milano) certainly didn't go amiss, this vampire flick is altogether too sluggish and dull to enjoy. What with it being a softcore erotic flick at times, the horror definitely wasn't the main objective, and if you look at the kills, it shows. Not a terrible film, technically-speaking, but I gleaned little enjoyment from it.

What are your thoughts on this mid-90's flick?

Horror Talk / Re: He's Out There (2018)
« on: December 01, 2018, 10:24:55 PM »
Have to admit, this one fell under my radar, but it doesn't look like I'm missing much.

As much as new directors try to harken back to the golden age of slashers, I don't think most will ever be able to capture the feel of those classic 80's slashers (one recent film that came close was Most Likely to Die from 2015).

Horror Talk / Split (2016)
« on: November 30, 2018, 08:26:22 AM »
Split it a very enjoyable and tense film, even without seeing a previous film of Shyamalan's. The story is well-paced, the performances solid (especially James McAvoy), and overall, a pretty solid watch. I'd definitely recommend it, despite the somewhat iffy conclusion.

Horror Talk / The Facility (2012)
« on: November 28, 2018, 05:41:22 AM »
I like quite a few things about this film, including the low-key feel (little music, for instance) and many of the performances. It has a certain feel of realism that many other films lack. That said, there's a plethora of idiotic decisions made by plenty of the characters, and after we get past the halfway point, I start losing a bit of interest. Not a bad movie, by any means, no great - solidly around average.

Horror Talk / Re: Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh (1995)
« on: November 24, 2018, 04:30:35 PM »
"Like" is a strong word. The movie isn't terrible, but I just watched it for what was probably like the third time, and it doesn't do a whole lot for me. I'll reiterate that this one just seems unnecessary (and though I've not seen Day of the Dead in years, I suspect that'll feel much the same).

Horror Talk / Kantemir (2015)
« on: November 24, 2018, 01:58:21 PM »
Were it not for Robert Englund, this movie probably wouldn't be worth watching. Even with Englund, I'm not entirely sure it's worth watching, but at least it has a little more to offer. A moderately interesting story here, but not the best execution, Kantemir might be worth a single go, but I wouldn't expect to be blown away.

Any thoughts on this Englund-starring flick?

Random Bullshit / Re: So what the hell have you been up to?
« on: November 23, 2018, 12:38:56 AM »
On a side-note, I'd love to co-host with you, but realistically speaking, given that I have a speech impediment, I don't really think I'm fit for a role like that. This said, if we do start those up again, I will definitely be calling in to the horror-themed shows.

Horror Talk / The Horror of It All (1964)
« on: November 21, 2018, 06:59:01 AM »
While certainly not an amazing movie by any stretch, I found this a lot more amusing and comedically snappy than I would have expected. It even comes with a catchy musical number sang by Boone. Certainly more pros than cons to this one if you're a fan of 60's horror.

Do you have any thoughts on this flick?

Other Movies / Entertaining Mr. Sloane (1970)
« on: November 16, 2018, 02:08:52 PM »
This British comedy (with mild horror elements toward the conclusion) takes the right type of person to attract. I found the humor juxtaposed by being amusing and nutty yet totally unrelated. Still, if dry British comedies are your thing, this might be worth a go. If horror is your main interest, though, I'd not recommend this one.

Have any thoughts on this most peculiar film?

Horror Talk / Re: It (1990)
« on: November 15, 2018, 05:17:51 AM »
Solid nostalgic value, but it leaves out so much from the book that I can't really rate it much higher than 6.5/10.

Horror Talk / Island of Lost Souls (1932)
« on: November 14, 2018, 08:53:47 AM »
Though certainly a classic of the genre, and a pretty fun and suspenseful ride throughout, I don't absolutely love this flick. Still, it contains brutality before it's time, and it's suitably creepy at times. If you're a fan of classic horror, you can't really go wrong here.

What are your thoughts on this classic?
