    I just saw A Haunting in Conneticut. It was great. Good story line and pretty decent effects.

    A Haunting in Conneticut is at best, 'ok'. Discovery Channel had a more interesting version; this one made me want to bang my head against a wall.

    American "horror" is more into gore, not "horror". International horror films are great with fright and less with disgusting scenes: The Orphanage, Ju-on, 13 the Game of Death (Well, that one's suspense but good to mention), The Eye (Original), etc. If you're going to watch remakes, don't best to just watch the original in pieces in YouTube.

    i am the biggest horror fan in the world, we should most def be friends, if u want to see a real eyebrow raiser watch OTTO its about gay vampires, theres a couple of indis that look good, theres one coming out called...paranormal activity its supposed to be very very scary and is getting extreme reviews. ummm as far as theatre goes, i dont see anything coming out other than remakes. Halloween 2. nightmare on elm street, night of the demons, the 3rd installment of the afterdark horrorfest came out and thats 8 new indi movies but only 3 of them look good.

    it looks pleasantly corny but im stoked to see poultrygiest icon_smile.gif

    sadly most "suspense/horror" films are a joke.

    Either horrific acting or nothing but gore, or both.

    The last good nervous, jump scare I got was watching The Dencent (and I saw it DVD only). There is some uneccessary gore, but in all I was on the edge of my seat quite a bit, and jumped about 3-4 times.

    I recently got a free-Starz wkend and caught the remake of Prom Night, while the acting was not completely a joke the movie was a snoozefest.

    The only time I enjoyed a funny one was when Paris Hilton died. Don't recall the name cause, it wasn't that important. I just wished she died slowly, like being forced feed with McDonald's food.

    The suspense / horror genre now have been flavored with mystery so there seem to be always a twist.

    Actually, it doesn't matter if its action / gore / suspense for horror movies. It depends on the writers and the director's vision and success to make the audience feel scared.

    House of Wax... lol. We need some good horror writers with original ideas. Remakes rarely work.

    Haunting in Conneticut was boring and draggged on, at one point I was starting at the green glowing exit sign in the theater because it was more interesting then the cheesy priest, boring mother, and not scary ghosts.

    Last House on the Left is okay, just okay. Very bloody and horrible but it lacks something. The villians are campy and as one character so eloquently expressed, "pathetic" I've seen better villians on the Power Rangers. I felt like I was watching some trash Eli Roth film where the only thing the film has to offer is gross outs, nothing under the surface except more blood and gore.


    The horror movies that are being released are either okay or completley stupid (The Uninvited) However, there is always the chance you will catch a good one that you'll never forget (The Strangers, Coraline)

    A really cool STAR TREK PHASE II episode available on the web is BLOOD AND FIRE by David Gerrold, a noted STAR TREK writer who is also Gay. The episode deals with Gay Marriage and AIDS (Using Regulan bloodworms as an allegory for AIDS). It's a two-parter. The first part is available, and can be downloaded from their website, at...

    www.startreknewvoyages.com

    Look under the DOWNLOADS link, and once there, click on EPISODES.

    These are "fan films" but they are quite professionally-made. I had the privelidge of creating some visual effects for the show (transporters and the red giant/white dwarf stars) and it's quite good.

    It is a rather horrific episode, almost having hints of ALIEN to it.

    Last good horror movie I saw....was....I'm thinking The Decent as well. I was bugged out before the monsters even came out, as I have a semi fear of caving...and those girls were fucking idiots doing what they did. The DVD version has a much better ending then in the theater.

    Devil's Rejects was really good....more of a psychological/emotional mindfuck then scary...I felt dirty afterwards.

    Haven't seen FT13th remake. Saw Bloody Valentine and the 3-D effects were awesome, but the movie itself was mildly good. Halloween remake was meh.


    Also liked Cloverfield. That was a fun one.

    If you love or hate hippies you may like THE TRIPPER. An axe-wielding killer in a Ronal Reagan mask killing hippies at a music festival in the Northern California forest....highly entertaining!

    The Orphanage is a great one, if you don't mind reading subtitles. Another culture's version of horror movie is very interesting to watch. Plus I don't see the stereotypical dumb useless bitch with the big hooters being chased around and when she dies, you can only sign in relief from the horror of 'Why god why did you let her live this long!?"

    Every movie involving a semi-inhuman killer(s) is the same: Halloween, Freddy, Jason, the monsters from the Decent, Pumpkinhead, Dracula, etc etc etc. They just have different backgrounds and slightly different story lines, but premise is the same.


    I am coming after you to kill you.


    Wait till Harry Potter 7 comes out!

    Pontypool is supposed to be good, if you like post-modern zombies. That should be coming out in a couple months.

    Good horror movies tend to sneak up on me, though -- so I wouldn't know if there are any good ones on the horizon.
