Re: How come horror cinema is still 50 years behind horror literature?

Original movies vs bankable is the debate I'm deducing. A studio is more likely to give money to a movie that can be marketed and promoted far easier than a genuine genre shift or unknown idea. The discovery screens had a few 'different movies' Our Evil was one for example (as used above) that was s...

Re: Personal safety

Indeed I've been here all my life and yes its dangerous but the 80's was pretty bad too.
Good to be vigilant but common sense takes over in most cases

Re: Mindhack

It wasn't that bad, unless it was just the "I'm not interested in where this is clearly going" kind of walkout. It pretty much was that sort of walkout. I didn't like some of the dialogue too and when it moved from him dealing with his stuff to trying to hack the mind with some tech as part of some...

Re: Victor Crowley

This was a great frighlfest movie...exactly what was needed...yes it was more of a comedy but Adam Green explained his thinking behind making it what it was. I enjoyed it... some good laughs...good kill scenes and watched with the right crowd. Adam Green knows the frighlfest crowd and it felt like t...

Re: Personal safety

Did any of this advice actually get used or needed?
The only thing to be vigilant of were the religious preachers outside.

I live here and work here...dangers are everywhere...given we are inside a cinema 80% of the time if something did happen outside we'd probably be ok.

Re: 68 Kill

This was a brilliant watch..not really a horror movie aside from some of the kill scenes. Vulgar and in your face and a decent watch with the frighlfest crowd. Didn't really buy into the fact every woman had to be a whore in it but I guess what works for the movie. Enjoyable watch and one of the fes...

Re: 3rd Night

This was a good watch...creepy enough and another twisted Australian thriller. Got myself a Cat mask (?!) Would have played well on the main screen too

Re: Meatball Machine Koduko

This was brilliantly mental! Knew what I was getting into and it didn't disappoint. If you've seen Tokyo Gore Police this is 2 gears up in terms of madness...well worth it....watch it with mates and if you drink...have a few drinks too!

Re: Mindhack

Kind of agree with the above....I sat down expecting some sort of mind struggle movie etc but it quickly became some teenage hack thing. I actually walked out to be honest and that was my first walk out at frightfest (I didn't watch shockwave and I really wanted to see where Tulpa went!)

Re: Tragedy Girls

I really enjoyed this...some of the dialogue was cringey (jelly) but I guess its made for the current generation too. Top film however and took me back to a teenager watching Heathers. Good work

Re: Inside

Decided to give this a go....didn't like it....messed up the ending...too Hollywood for me and too many plot holes. Wasn't to watch but the end dragged it down for me

Re: Freehold

This was so good...very funny and very poignant too. Like the acting of the 2 main guys too and I think it told a strong message too.
Well worth checking out, especially if you are an estate agent or have tried letting a house

Re: Better Watch Out

I didn't know what to expect here and as it transpires the film gives nothing away and you really walk away thinking...I didn't expect it to do that. Brilliant film and a great Christmas movie....was a bit creepy at times and may be that was intended but the power trip thing was a tad off but it wor...

Re: Ruin Me

This wasn't bad at all...a tad predictable given I had seen Fear Inc recently and it reminded me of that a bit. The film did slow down a bit and I'd have preferred build up to be quicker...but all in all an enjoyable watch....good one to check out

Re: Killing Ground

This was a cracking film..more so as it was first up...one major "you can't do that in movies" scene but they worked well and I liked this. I know for god damn sure I'm not going to the Australian outback for a holiday...forget that!
