Re: Human Centipede II

Has anyone actually seen it? A friend, who I do not share movie tastes with, saw it and said despite all the horribleness it was actually quite boring.

Re: BEST film of DAY 4

I'm a Giallo fan, but did not get Amer at all. Thought it was pretentious nonsence, with some laughable symbolism - especially all those tunnels representing vaginas in the 2nd part.

Re: Tobe Hooper and the chainsaw massacre

I don't think that the Empire guy can be blamed - Tobe Hooper just seemd to be a rubbish interview. If you missed it, here were his stock of answers:

"Yes"

"No"

"I can't remember"

Re: The Dead

Definately an issue with pacing. It was like the Lord of the Rings take in Clerks 2. Walk a bit, shoot a zombie, drive a bit, shoot a zombie, repeat.

Re: The Loved Ones

I was hoping that this wouldn't just be more boring torture porn and luckily that was the case. The film seemed to get the right balance of violence and comedy, plus visually I really enjoyed it. Someone commented on the prom scenes, but they were a hoot and didn't spoil the film but in gfact probab...

Re: Walking Dead Footage

When it is aired it's definately going to be accused of ripping off 28 Days Later.

Re: Last Exorcism Ending

I told Eli Roth afterwards that the ending had taken me completely by surprise and I hadn't expected that, and his eyes just lit up and he said "Good, that's exactly what we were after!" The confusion it creates is obviously intentional then. I'd initally just assumed it must be devil worshippers s...

Re: Last Exorcism

Indeed, the ending just fizzled out. It reminded me of Race With the Devil, fitting as it seemed to have been dropped in from another film.

Re: Red White & Blue

My standout of the fest. For whatever reason this style of film really appeals to me, so from the first few minutes I was hooked.

People are complaining that it's not horror, but for me Red, White & Blue and t like are far more effective as horror genre films than stuff like Hatchet II.

Re: Christopher Roth

I found this film pretty frustrating and would've walked out, but just stuck through with it. It was as if someone at the Umbria Tourist board had gone mad and commissioned a promotional film for Umbria and at some point had the idea of extending it to include a thriller plot (maybe similar to what ...

Re: Damned By Dawn

Couldn't hear what ...

Re: Monsters

I have to agree with comments above concerning how great it was. It's definately one of my faves from this year. However I also have to agree with comments re the comparisons to District 9, etc. It may well do on it's opening weekend, but when people get feedback that it's not all sci-fi action I th...

Re: I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE

As far as remakes go it was definately a good one, but have seen films in this mold so many times before that it failed to keep my interest. Also didn't find the rape scene particularly harrowing. However I do have to say kudos to Andrew Howard. Thought I vaguely recognised the sherrif, but complete...

Re: BEST film of DAY 2

If F's could still be awarded that's the mark I'd given F;) Remake of Precinct 13? More like a poor remake of Them.
