du bist ein Arsch, Herr "Austerity Ponies"

No joke, speaking as one wuss to another, Audition is way, way harder to watch than Human Centipede.

DJP, when you spoke of the physical, visceral reaction, it made me think of that scene, which as of today I have only seen 3 times, because HOLY FUCK JESUS

the interesting part is that it is my right eye that hurts, as if I had been looking into a mirror instead of a screen.

ichi the killer is way more gruesome than audition ... and it's also better than audition.

not nominated, bc rightfully it's not very good, but i get a lot of pleasure from poppy slasher horror movies like I Know What You Did Last Summer

also, it's been hard for me to take human centipede seriously since it was spoofed on South Park.

no wai is ichi better than odishon! great onscreen delivery of the title, great gore here and there, amazing conclusion, but i thought it was a pretty dull movie outside the flagrantly weird stuff. auditon's completely the opposite. everyone talks about the crazy stuff at the end, but i was fascinated by the characters and their relationship.

my eye still hurts

ok, i'm bored. horror-stans, talk about something provocative plz!

is anyone voting for faces of death? or similar 'horror' films?

Hey guess what? Everybody is OTM about Cabin in the Woods.

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Tuesday, 24 April 2012 03:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

And no I am not voting for Faces of Death. I couldn't get past the first vignette (IIRC somebody getting tortured and punched in the face).

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Tuesday, 24 April 2012 03:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

Well, they were dead when they were punched in the face, so ...

I'm going to fill my last spot with the Twin Peaks pilot. (I don't mean to sidetrack this into Twin Peaks discussion #591.) I got it out and watched it again tonight. I'm not a big fan of Fire Walk with Me--there are parts of it I like--and even though I'd be okay with voting for the entire series, that really wouldn't be fair (plus you'd be voting for a fair amount of really silly stuff). The pilot is a way for me to acknowledge that part of the series (four, five, six hours, scattered about) that gripped and terrified me as much as almost anything I've ever seen. The blueprint for that film is in the pilot. Bob doesn't appear, but he's looming--in the one shot of the school's empty halls, in the awful traces left behind in the boxcar, in Grace Zabriskie's scream at the end. If you know what's coming, it's a horror film.

clemenza, Tuesday, 24 April 2012 04:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

i want to stan for and hope everyone will vote for DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS, harry kumel's decadent eurosleaze masterpiece from 1971. it is sort of my ideal horror movie, and another of my all time favorite movies of any sort. it's technically a "lesbian vampire movie", but much less campy and trashy than that might suggest, it's pitched somewhere between antonioni ripoff and tribute to the gothic glamour of 40s horror. drowsy, sexy, death-haunted and just totally badass from front to back. plus an all-time classic performance from delphyine seyrig as the countess elizabeth bathory.

a lot of "it is" and "it's" sentences in there :(

Yeah, even though it's stretching the purpose of this poll somewhat, I considered stumping for some specific television episodes (e.g. Twin Peaks - "Lonely Souls", The X-Files - "Home", The Outer Limits - "Don't Open Until Doomsday" (total proto-Lynch, that one)) that are as solid as any number of horror films in the nominations thread. Because otherwise you'd have to do a "best horror episodes of all time" poll, which would just be a mess.

I can't believe that jeepers creepers didn't get nommed, might vote for it anyway, and so should everyone else obv.

Badu and a sax run hand-in-hand (jjjusten), Tuesday, 24 April 2012 07:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

i'm not qualified to vote in this but i think i may have been the only person to vote for cemetery man in the comedy poll and i just wanted to pop in and second/third/fourth the entreaties to vote for it here since i never bothered to stump for it earlier and have learned that the only thing necessary for cemetery man to fail is that good men do nothing.

I really hope Michele Soavi's career takes off again because i'm pretty sure he'd be making better films than Argento at this point.

Just like you, except hot (ShariVari), Tuesday, 24 April 2012 07:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

'Burn, Witch, Burn' is down on the list, it's also known as 'Night of the Eagle' and is a nice, low key chiller.

at the risk of being chased out of the thread with torches, i watched repulsion last night and it was sort of ok? i dont quite get where the huge love for it comes from at all.

Rachel Profiling (jjjusten), Thursday, 26 April 2012 19:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

like if i ever had the need to watch something like that i would much rather have carnival of souls or psycho on and be done with it.

Rachel Profiling (jjjusten), Thursday, 26 April 2012 19:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

yesterday i almost posted that you (and ed3) have been relentlessly otm throughout this thread.

now i am glad i got drunk and forgot what i was doing and played a mega man emulator instead.

ok to be fair i prob need to take a step back, ive kind of been mainlining old horror movies and giallos so i feel like i can vote fairly in this and it might be doing my head in a little bit, i think i watched who can kill a duckling and the start of two other things before getting to this one, so it seemed like a bit of a slog.

Rachel Profiling (jjjusten), Thursday, 26 April 2012 19:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

What did you think of Don't Torture A Duckling?

Just like you, except hot (ShariVari), Thursday, 26 April 2012 19:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

I mentioned upthread that Repulsion seems several steps away from Psycho - it goes farther, handles various things more explicitly. I thought it was great, especially stuff like the arms bursting through the walls in the hallway, cracks appearing abruptly in the building, her pulling back the covers of her bed and having a crazed rapist leap out from under them etc

heavy is the head that eats the crayons (Shakey Mo Collier), Thursday, 26 April 2012 19:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah i dunno, i think it's great, close to my favorite polanski and quite accessible. set and setting, though...

THE KITTEN TYPE (contenderizer), Thursday, 26 April 2012 19:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

so since this all started and in the interests of research i've watched Possession, Amer, Pontypool, Tourist Trap, The Witch Who Came From The Sea, Pulse, Drag Me To Hell, Below and Apaches. Although I liked them all to varying degrees (apart from maybe Below) prob only Possession will make my 50. Got Paperhouse, Who Can Kill A Child and Hour Of The Wolf lined up (yes, I've been doing lots of youtubing). Obv I can't list everything I've seen but assuming I'm a pretty big horror fan and have seen most of the canonical ones, does anybody have personal recommendations for something I really, REALLY need to see before the deadline?

guys do you all wanna get together and make a horror movie? this is what my life has been building toward since about age 10 but i'm 34 now and in the interest of keeping it really real i'll never get my shit together well enough to pull it off before i'm dead.

I have no horror-filmmaking skills, I'm pretty sure

heavy is the head that eats the crayons (Shakey Mo Collier), Thursday, 26 April 2012 20:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

can you play dead? i'm sure there's an extras role in there for you somewhere.

jesus christ (strongo hulkington's ghost dad), Thursday, 26 April 2012 20:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

M. White used to be a location scout iirc
