wow, i was quite amazed i didn't fall asleep watching this (as it happened to me while watching Machine Girl) - bizzare, gory, and fun in some places. three things that bought me: - crocodile vagina - tv commercials - they were just mad! - human dog with katanas instead of limbs and a little bit of ...

it was quite funny. of course plot was just an excuse for some more or less funny jokes, some gory (some of them inventive) scenes. but hey, they had fun making it, i had fun watching it. it's by no means great movie (and those comparisons to Argento - c'mon! have some decency!!!) but ok to watch fo...

i think that everybody talks about Martyrs mainly because of one reason - all the hype it got it Cannes, everybody was hearing - another French one, breaking all the rules - so it was like - omg, that has to be great! but come on! first half of the film - great stuff, but nothing we haven't seen bef...

Frankly I don't care what the director said his intentions were, the effect was that I felt increasingly that the film was hitting me over the head with a right-leaning agenda. well, i have to agree - director's intentions are to some extent not important. his creation speaks for itself. thus i'd s...

Can't work out how to quote messages if quoting whole message, just click "quote" button at the top right corner of post you want to quote. if only part of the text it is like that [ quote = " nickname " ] text [ / quote ] - just remove all the spaces in the bbq tags. the Poe quote is from William ...

but in horror there is a need for figure of Other - monstrous, dangerous, different, one needs an opposition. in this case blue collars. but maybe you are right to some extent, because all of the country folk in EL where somewhat strange/sociopathic/etc. (btw, Calvaire does the same IIRC) but direct...

i was quite disappointed with this one. i like spanish genre cinema, so my expectations were high. and it turned out to be only so so. plot wasn't really original and very predictable at times. nice few scenes though, good acting, atmosphere here and there. ok flick, but was hoping for so much more ...

i was laughing my arse off. it was like the crapiest 24 episode (say from season 6) combined withe the silliest x-files. and i thought, that Aja had some creative power in him, when he set out to do the remake. absolutely dreadful stuff in terms of horror, but hilarious as a comedy. definitely so ba...

not that it really matters, but does anyone can point me to the source that the Poe's quote in the beginning of the film was taken from?

besides all sillyness and strong deja vu effect i kinda liked it. well shot, slow but well acted - have seen much worse films in my life :)
