Horror Talk / Criminally Insane (1975)
« on: August 04, 2018, 08:37:43 AM »
Criminally Insane is the perfect example of a 70's flick - a plot that should be funny being done in deadly serious tone, a short and digestible run-time, and the perfect grindhouse drive-in feel. Given it's just over an hour, I'd recommend checking out this film, because if nothing else, I think you could agree it's certainly amusing in many ways.

What do you think about this cult classic?

Horror Talk / Dark Echoes (1977)
« on: August 04, 2018, 08:36:52 AM »
While not really a very lively, nor exciting, movie, Dark Echoes has sort of a pre-Fog interesting atmosphere to it. No doubt it oft feels like a television movie, but there is certainly charm, along with some surprisingly decent gore near the end.

Have you any thoughts on this mildly forgotten flick from the 70's?

Horror Talk / Ghostwatch (1992)
« on: August 02, 2018, 12:17:29 AM »
A found footage flick, of sorts, Ghostwatch is one of the most immersive movies I've ever seen. Originally airing on the BBC Halloween night on 1992, and subsequently banned for ten years, Ghostwatch is a bit difficult to put into words. It uses real television personalities and reporters, and in short, just feels as though it could actually be happening. Fantastic British supernatural movie which I highly recommend.

Horror Talk / Broken Notes (2008)
« on: August 02, 2018, 12:17:08 AM »
Based off the classic video game Silent Hill 2, this Spanish movie is an interesting, if not rather flawed, adaptation. That said, I know virtually nothing about Silent Hill 2 - never played it, never seen it played, and that likely influenced my thoughts quite a bit. Still, I found this flick odd - scenes that didn't appear to have context, metaphorical representations I didn't get (which weren't helped by the disjointed nature of the movie), and while they got the dreamy atmosphere down pat, there wasn't much here to really enjoy.

What did you think about this Spanish adaptation of a video game?

Horror Talk / Jockstrap Slaughterhouse (2016)
« on: July 31, 2018, 06:05:51 AM »
With an almost school project feeling to it, this low-budget slasher had a lot of heart. It's nothing stellar, but for a short slasher flick, and one with as ridiculous a name as Jockstrap Slaughterhouse, it's decently enjoyable. I just wish there was a bit more meat to the story, but otherwise, for lower-budget films, this is recommended, if you're not averse to a little silliness.

Horror Talk / House of Whores (2015)
« on: July 31, 2018, 06:05:44 AM »
This is a very, shall we say, interesting flick, which ends up being moderately depraved. There are heinous and disgusting acts of torture in this short (around 45 minutes) flick, but with an overlay of slapstick comedy. There's music, jokes, and general silliness. It's an odd combination, but if you don't mind ultra-low quality films, this may be worth checking out.

Have you any opinions on House of Whores?

Horror Talk / Slaughter Hotel (1971)
« on: July 29, 2018, 12:45:10 AM »
Despite a potentially fun plot, this Italian flick, originally titled La bestia uccide a sangue freddo, ends up being both repetitive and rather dull. Sure, if nudity's your thing, then this movie might be right up your alley, but given the weakness of most of the kills, along with the sluggish pace, I just couldn't give it much higher than below average.

What are your feelings on this giallo/softcore porno?

Horror Talk / The Monster Maker (1944)
« on: July 29, 2018, 12:43:47 AM »
Having seen this movie multiple times (I believe this was my fourth), I can't help but feel, while it does what it set out to do, it's not really stellar or worth-watching in any way. Certainly, you could do worse from the same era of horror, but when it's all said and done, this movie is, at best, just average.

Horror Talk / The Slumber Party Massacre (1982)
« on: July 27, 2018, 03:53:45 AM »
A low-key slasher classic, there's not that much to really say about this film. It has some decent gore, fun nudity, occasionally interesting characters, and moderately enjoyable kills. It's a quick-paced flick, one to pop in, grab some snacks, and enjoy. Nothing too deep, The Slumber Party Massacre is an early 80's flick that does what it needs to, nothing more, nothing less.

What do you think about this flick?

Horror Talk / Hour of the Wolf (1968)
« on: July 27, 2018, 03:51:08 AM »
Vargtimmen (or Hour of the Wolf) is a Swedish classic that consistently gets high ratings, even today. As a psychological nightmare, it's certainly a solid film. But as a horror movie that one goes into for enjoyment, it doesn't quite stand up. Hour of the Wolf is a Bergman classic, and it's probably worth a view, but if you're not that into experimental films, or movies that don't have much cohesion, I might recommend something else.

What did you think about this late 60's Swedish flick?

Horror Talk / End of Days (1999)
« on: July 25, 2018, 11:01:15 PM »
This movie is probably fine if you're generally into this kind of stuff, but after seeing it twice, I just don't dig it. Far too much action thrown in, in my view. Might be a good viewing if you like Schwarzenegger, but otherwise, I don't really see how this would appeal to anyone.

What did you think of this late 90's flick?

Horror Talk / Hostel: Part II (2007)
« on: July 25, 2018, 10:57:49 PM »
While the first movie is pretty good already, the second Hostel expands a bit on the torture organization, and keeps the gore strong. Despite a few subplots and characters I didn't care for, I thought that this film was pretty strong.

What did you think about this sequel?

Horror Talk / Buried Alive (1990)
« on: July 21, 2018, 04:32:34 AM »
Because it's a television movie, Buried Alive is pretty tame, all things considered. Still, there's a very solid cast here, which makes the sometimes hokey story a lot more enjoyable. This isn't an amazing movie, but I do think that it's very serviceable, and would certainly recommend it for a rainy night.

Horror Talk / The Hornet's Sting and the Hell It's Caused (2014)
« on: July 21, 2018, 04:30:57 AM »
This isn't necessarily a bad flick, but it's paper-thin plot doesn't really do much for me, and the excessive nudity, while occasionally fun, doesn't add a whole lot to the story. Kudos to the director for the more creative portions, and the controversial ending is certainly unique, but this film strikes me as one that you need only see once.

Have you any thoughts on this Dustin Mills' flick?

Horror Talk / The Manster (1959)
« on: July 19, 2018, 12:02:18 AM »
While not amazing, I think this flick (despite the horrible title) is actually pretty serviceable, in terms of how well it does for the era. There are much better late 50's horror movies, but The Manster is pretty competent in most of what it sets out to do. It's held back by a few too many chase scenes, though. Otherwise, it may well be worth a watch.

What did you think of this late 50's monster (dare I say manster? [*no*]) movie?
