    The movie could also include the terrifying concept of dead people being replaced by skeletons. I think that is sufficient to add interest. Behold, the ravages of time!


    I did llike the X-Files episode about Donnie whassisname who was into necrophilia, and how they did a kind of "overlay" on him to suggest he was really a ghoul in human form, although I think it was more allegorical and reflecting the state of his soul.
    Do you remember the name of it?

    Actually looked more like a skeleton lol.
    I played the Quest for Glory that was based on ancient Greece and had dragons. There was a Minotaur character that I remember being pretty awesome. I thought playing as the Thief was the most interesting... somehow they worked in references to Bogart films there, too.

    Regarding terminology for undead creatures, I really like the word "wight," and I thank J.R.R. Tolkein and George R.R. Martin for bringing it back.

    yeah, "Wight" is a cool name.
    It's too bad they got dropped from the LOTR movies (the barrow wights, I mean).

    I was just telling Sultan I played every QfG that WASN'T the dragon one. (It originally was called "So You Want to Be a Hero," which expresses the tongue-in-cheek attitude it often exuded.) It was one of my favorite game series at the time it came out. I think you can find updated versions that run on modern computers, online.

    X-Files episode:
    Irresistible (The X-Files) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Donnie Pfaster was the character. Usually makes the top 10-15 episodes of the series list.

    @Vulcan Oh you liked the dragon one? well, that's cool. but it was actually my least favorite game in the series haha. it was sort of a disappointment to me.
    @Jennifer I think you can buy the whole series on gog.com

    Also, there's a free remake of QFG2 somewhere, with better graphics and a point and click system instead of the text input parser thing which the original 1 and 2 had (1 already got a Sierra remake a long time ago) . I can't remember where.

    Oh and there's Heroine's Quest, fan made game inspired by the series. I like it a lot.

    It was the only one I played. I remember enjoying it, though.

    I want a period zombie film, maybe set during the late Roman Empire or something.

    But a good one.

    @Jennifer @Vulcan Watched Maggie yesterday. Exceptionally well done film. Intriguing premise and really well executed. I'm not huge into body horror, but each step of Maggie's transformation is more awful in a heartbreaking kind of way than gross out horrible. I also don't think I've seen a horror movie this beautiful from the standpoint of cinematography since Stoker. Casting Arnold in the film was also pretty genius on a lot of levels. Somehow watching this powerful person fighting as hard as he can to save his daughter from every threat but be so ultimately helpless in the face of the one that's actually destroying her is just devestating to watch.

    Definitely took a page from the Babadook playbook with the idea that the monsters are almost besides the point of what is truly terrifying about the film. Editing is also brilliantly succinct: gets in, breaks your heart and its done. Great film.

    Glad someone else really liked it; it continues to grow on me as I think about it, and I thought many of the reviews were unfair in regards to the ending:



    That scene where she talks at the campfire and then sits in the bus with the other diseased kid... wow. Honestly, "The Fault in Our Stars" didn't have anything on that, it felt more real to me in this movie even though far less is said.

    Yeah, did you respond to me on that one yet? Sounds like you really hated it.

    VM or elsewhere?

    Unrelated, but I also just heard they're remaking The Craft. Somewhere my 10 year old self is weeping impossibly bitter tears.
