    Oh man... I used to love IT, the movie! It was cheesy, yet genuinely creepy and had a great ending.

    ...Then I found out there was a Part II.

    Watching a weird ass movie called Siren now, I thought it was going to be some really shit rip off of dead calm or one or some of that dross which I see every month in the supermarket, tons of "horror" flicks which are just weird killer flicks.

    I thought I'd toss this "25 horror flick" list out here, since it's got some interesting points about the films raised by the two reviewers, and while some of the films on the list are regular contenders for these kinds of rankings, there are some choices I haven't really heard much about before and now have added to my "must see" list.

    I agree with their thoughts of Donnie Darko. I wish the Director's Cut had just focused on production issues or small bits that wouldn't have clarified some of the story; I think the beauty of the theatrical release was the ambiguity of the film, in terms of whether Donnie actually IS this "hero" he writes of himself in his class poetry or whether he is actually in the early stages of a schizophrenic breakdown.

    [As a side note, Kelly's "The Box" based on Sartre's "No Exit" was pretty unsettling in itself even with all the loose ends.]

    Not sure what I'll be watching this season.
    Maybe Wolf Creek, 28 Days Later (which I haven't seen for two years or more?), and... oh, I dunno. The Fly's a pretty short pic.

    Or maybe I'll go back and watch Pan's Labyrinth or El Orfanato (The Orphanage) or El Espinazo del Diablo (The Devil's Backbone) -- hooray for Guillermo del Toro. Maybe the opening segment of V/H/S. Or the first Nightmare on Elm Street.

    EDIT: Here's also an extensive list of scary movies and the scenes in those movies, with small thumbnails. Fair warning: It's uncensored (pics and text), so be prepared for anything on that list.

    Blah, pretty lame Halloween scene so far.

    I did watch Alien the other night (Director's Cut). What I don't get about director cuts is when they add some decent stuff but also make some bad changes. Donnie Darko is a prime example of a Director's Cut that ruins one fo the better parts of the movie (the ambiguity of whether Donnie really is a "hero with powers" versus just a paranoid schizophrenic in a decline) while polishing things.

    The Alien DC isn't TOO bad, it adds some nice stuff (including Lambert getting into a slapfest with Ripley when Ripley tries to lock them out on quarantine) but


    I was looking at ages of the cast out of curiosity. They were all actually pretty old. The two youngest were the two women, who were both about 30 at the time (and Weaver looks so young!). Meanwhile, Hurt and Kotto were around 40, Skerritt in his mid-40's, Holm pushing 50, and Stanton in his early/mid 50's. Pretty old cast for your first real "space/slasher/survivor" movie.

    I wouldn't consider Donnie Darko a horror film. It had elements of horror, but I'd either classify it as Psychological Drama/Thriller or very loosely as Science Fiction

    Don't get me started on Alien. It holds a permanent spot in my top ten.

    The Director's Cut is a strange animal because it doesn't extend the film (it's shorter), yet Scott changed so much around that it is almost a different film entirely.

    I like the Aliens Special Edition as well. It better explains why Ripley becomes SO attached to Newt. Way longer than the theatrical, but I don't think it slows the film down as is the case with many directors cuts of other films.

    Man, I really need to watch Pan's Labyrinth again. What a depressingly beautiful movie.

    I don't watch more horror films during the Halloween season, but I do watch a lot of The Twilight Zone. I also read more Hellboy and BPRD. (Anyone? Anyone?)

    I'm just spitballing here, but could it have been the nauseatingly realistic violence and the child slaughtering and the piles of corpses?

    Oh no I have this fear of it happening again, but to christians. this was well before 9/11 and in one of my dreams arabs were rounding up christians (espeically the orthodox and catholics and putting them into camps like the nazi's did to the jews) (I was orthodox at the time, I still techinically am I just don't practice or believe the stuff). so it wasn't the corspes or anything it was the fear that it could happen again.(I think I was 12 so this would've been 98). In one point we hid in the base of a statue of the virgin mary. (I was also reading the diary of anne frank in school at the time). I didn't know any middle easterns or anything about muslims or jack shit about over there at the time, and now with ISIS and all the shit going on with that. I don't know if ISIS is a threat, any extremist group I have issues with cuz of ww11.
