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 / 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 / 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 / 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?

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 / 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?

Horror Talk / Backwoods (1987)
« on: November 13, 2018, 10:54:13 AM »
Despite being one of the few horror movies filmed in Indiana (a state I've dwelled in most of my life), Backwoods relies far too much on uninteresting drama as opposed to solid horror. It picks up a bit toward the end, and we do get a decent scene or two, but overall, I think this one would disappoint many people who look into it.

Horror Talk / Grave Halloween (2013)
« on: November 10, 2018, 08:39:55 AM »
There's basically no reason to go out of your way to watch this flick, which is rather uninspired and pretty pointless. The setting is creepy, but the whole film reeks of mediocrity, and I can't say there's much value to be found here.

Have you thoughts on this horrible flick?

Horror Talk / Plaga Zombie (1997)
« on: November 03, 2018, 09:10:25 AM »
This film has great gore, for the budget, even amazing gore. The problem is, this Argentina flick has little else. It's mainly a repetitive bloody brawl with zombies, and it doesn't take long for the film to become too ridiculous or dull. Great gore, but nothing else to really draw me in.

What are your thoughts on this foreign flick?

Horror Talk / Things (1989)
« on: November 01, 2018, 11:36:36 AM »
Things is an inept, illogical mess that gets almost nothing right. It almost defies explanation as to how bad the film is. Unless you see it, experience it, you'll never know what it's really like. Bring a lot of beer and weed if you do, though, and some friends, as without them, you might come out of this one hating yourself and everything in existence. Decent gore, though.

Have you any thoughts on this atrocity from Canada?

Horror Talk / The Midnight Meat Train (2008)
« on: November 01, 2018, 04:55:12 AM »
I think that the gore in the film is probably the biggest point that'd draw audience members in. It's a solid story, both interesting and, at times, suspenseful, and many of the main performances were pretty good. It was occasionally a bit too CGI-heavy at times, but other than that, I think this is a pretty solid adaptation of a Clive Barker story.

Horror Talk / Don't Deliver Us from Evil (1971)
« on: October 19, 2018, 05:35:52 PM »
Despite some great performances from the two main actresses and a really solid ending, this slow-burn was just a bit too aimless for me to truly care for. While it might be a more effective film should you be religious, this French movie just wasn't something I'd go out of my way to see again.

What are your thoughts on this 70's French flick?
