    I'll need to check out the Descent. I agree with you on Session 9.

    Do you have Netflix? Grave Encounters is surprisingly good, as is Cabin in the Woods (though that might be too much of a comedy for Halloween, depending on your taste). Now that I think of it, I thought Rob Zombie's Halloween remake was quite good (though I actually enjoyed House of 1000 Corpses, which many think would indicate that my recommendations should be taken with a grain of salt). I'll check my Netflix account and/or DVD collection for other ideas.....

    The Serpent and the Rainbow

    Suicide Club (also known as Suicide Circle)

    1408

    A Tale of Two Sisters

    Rose Red

    From Netflix:

    The Devil's Carnivale (a horror musical).

    Don't be Afraid of the Dark (largely for the house).

    Werewolf: the Beast Among Us (not really horror, but the theme is right).

    I Sell The Dead (again, not really horror).

    Bah. Most current Netflix options are either too obvious (like the Hellraiser series), too mediocre, or not truly horror movies....mostly the second option.

    (I watched the Room 237 documentary around the same time as well; it might still be on NetFlix.)

    My basic observations:

    1. It's not nearly as faithful an adaptation in tone to King's book as the later TV series, which actually makes Jack a sympathetic character.

    2. That aside, taken as a standalone, it's a really good movie. And everything is so stark, and controlled; anything in that movie is there because Kubrick wanted it to be, down to the pictures on the wall and the arrangement of the cannisters in the walk-in. Even the hotel layout is designed to disorient; there are one-take scenes where Danny is traveling on his Big Wheel and the layout is wrong and doesn't overlap where it should, and there are scenes where they walk out of the same door they entered a minute earlier and the hallway outside is different. Just crazy stuff.

    I agree.

    Oh, there's also "Yellow Brick Road" on netFlix. Great, low-budget movie for the first 80% of the movie (really unsettling with the most basic of scenarios); then it goes to hell IMO. But Marm liked it and felt like the ending had significance.

    Also -- I don't remember if "Let Me In" is there, but "Let the Right One In" is on Netflix. The latter is the original adaptation (to Swedish film) of the book, and the former is the American adaptation from a year or two ago. Overall, I prefer the Swedish one, although I think the American version opens better and the scene with the vampire in the hospital bed was better than the corresponding "cat" scene in the Swedish version.

    One big issue: The lead kid is actually kind of a psychopath in the book (he's detached from all relationships) and this comes through better in the Swedish version; the American version makes him more normal and emotionally accessible.

    Too bad we can't mix and match scenes.

    Currently watching, Stephen King's, "It."

    Billyy, stop stuttering, you sound like Elmer Fudd.
    Actually, Elmer Fudd has a lisp, it's Porky the Pig who stu-tu-tters.



    LOL! I never realized how campy it was - watched it last, back when I was a kid.

    I can't even watch that thing. It's one of my favorite King books, and I think Tim Curry is pretty amazing, but I've only ever made it about 30 minutes into it.

    With a three-hour runtime, the necessary edits already make it impossible to translate (a lot of the richness of the 1100-page book is lost automatically), and then you get people who don't know how to translate King to screen in a way that actually is scary/meaningful. King's dialogue can be dangerous because it will work on the page but not in the ear, at least when he starts doing weird/crazy stuff.

    I love that movie, & the book may be my all-time favorite. Almost all of King's film adaptations are poorly done (but they work out as wonderful comedies). I can appreciate Tim Curry's performance in IT, though.

    I think there may be talks about a remake, mini-series..
