Great Finnish Christmas movie that is influenced by Pan's Labyrinth.

Second to last is fucking "WHOA" but the last episode has heaps of shitty cliffhangers that make me hate them for not having another season made already.

Edit: Jon Snow and Gendry are the hawtest. Fuckin' Chris from Skins, eh, who knew.

Thoroughly enjoyed this. Great soundtrack, nice and long, good pace for watching a bit hungover.


Image

Thought this was pretty decent. Cool concept and Paul Rudd is the fuckin best but the wrap-up at the end was a bit shit. Could've easily ended it at the scene where he gets his nephew to tell everyone to go fuck themselves.

watched this last night, bit dumb and cringe-worthy in parts i thought, like the salute into the broken light fitting. not enough sexy nazi outfits either imo.

^want to seee!

Also: attempted to watch Martians Go Home. 1989, so worth it for the amazing fashion, hair and brick phones, and had a couple of funny lines, but otherwise got a bit unwatchable after half an hour...

Was about bloody time I watched this. Julia Nickson is an ultrababe. Now I just gotta see the third one.



Image

Very cool and interesting horror film documentary focusing on the socio-political context of these films from the late '60s to the late '70s. Can be streamed on YouTube. I highly recommend it.



Image

This series is fucking fantastic. The episodes on P.E.T.A., the Boy Scouts of America and 'The Best' are great.

Best horror film doco I've seen is Going to Pieces, about the rise and fall of the slasher film. It's a pretty sweet watch.


Image
The Woman
A country town lawyer is out hunting one day when he finds a feral woman in the woods. He decides to chain her up in his basement to 'civilise' her, along with his terrified family.

A relentless feminist horror flick, this builds and builds as the pressure of the guy's dominion over his family starts to show on his wife, his two daughters and his disciple son. Then all hell breaks loose.

Really good stuff - quite rough and gory, so probably not for everyone, but easily Lucky McKee's best film.

That reminds me, seen Image ?
(not a doco, but pretty amusing. Group of film students follow a serial killer around as he gives them insight into how he pulls off all the slasher stunts needed to stage a massacre. Good nods to a lot of horror/slasher conventions, eg showing them how he does a lot of cardio to be able to walk faster than victims can run, practicing 'pretend to be dead' in a sensory deprivation chamber so he can come back later.)

I love that movie - even the little bits (the lead chick avoiding alcohol, not liking physical contact, etc). They're trying to crowd-source a sequel, but are struggling a bit...

Have never watched it, was actually really good.
Some of it made pretty much no sense/ was stupid, but most of the effects were amazing and I was pretty gripped for most of it.

Is it worth watching the sequels?

The demons reminded me a lot of these guys which is cool

True? I'll watch it soon.

I thought the deskinned effects on the main guy were rad in the first one. Well done for '87 for sure.
Also got to see where this shot came from

this looks awesome and is a great example of the best thing that can be done to combat piracy is to name movies etc generic words. searching for "the woman" is an exercise in futility. i bet the the don't have many issues with piracy either :evil:

The other night I watched Scott Pilgram v the world. It was shit, I think I may have even fallen asleep towards the end. Lame jokes, stylistic post production nightmare, and average average storyline. WTF was all the hype about?

^^^ This is fact.

I love the original Hellraiser. The sheer balls to make a film about infidelity and sexual temptation...with some S&M demons lobbed in. I think the director's cut of Lord of Illusions is a better film, but Hellraiser is just so damn ballsy - the supposed heroine is barely in it until the final third.

The second is a mess, but an interesting mess. Lots of great ideas that far outstrip the budget and plenty of bad ideas, too. But the good stuff is really good, such as when a guy is covered in razor wire, disfigured and turned into a bleeding Cenobite and promptly says - "And to think I hesitated..."

After the second, the studio realised how much the Pinhead character was getting traction and turned it into a watered-down cash-grab franchise. Avoid the lot.

Any Day Now wrote:I can borrow?


I rented it! But I will buy it at some point...maybe on blu. It's not really one to watch if you're looking for a sympathetic male character. Even male extras with barely a line are horrible human beings.

DIRECTOR'S CUT ONLY, THOUGH.

The characters are so great. Harry D'Amour, Swann the Illusionist and Nix the Puritan.
