We saw Friday the 13th last night, we liked it, we went in a group of loud ass crazy girls,( I felt bad for Dave a lil bit but he's used to me and my crazy friends) and the other people in the place were a fun group so everyone was all yelling at the screen and shit. All and all a very good time! Except of course when I got up to use the bathroom and my clumsy drunk ass tripped down the stairs in front of the whole place
I enjoyed the new Friday, but I also went in with low expectation. I'm just love Jason and seeing him on the big screen was nice. It certainly wasnt the best of the series but I still enjoyed. Gonna watch Midnight Meat Train tonight!
Quarantine was good till the very end. In the words of Father Root "It must really suck to go all the way to the climax, and then go flacid!"
"This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll whisper "no.""- Rorschach
Some of these are horrible, though I don't know if they're horror. They are, however, the movies I have seen lately.
I'm A Cyborg, But It's Okay (Saibogujiman kwenchana)
A great Korean film Korean cinema is ne plus weirder-er (have you seen 301/302?) and this film is right up there! I am loathe to rank anything, but this film is so wonderful I am tempted to rank it my second favorite cinematic love story ever behind my first place of Big Fish. A young girl has a psychotic break and is instutionalized. She believes she is a cyborg. Another falls in love with her and the ball gets rolling. The sequences from the female's perspective are among the most dreamlike I've ever seen. This is the sort of theme I was expecting to see explored in Machine Girl and, when it was not, left me so disappointed. Though there are some incredibly violent scenes, this is not a splatter film in any way. Categorizing this film is similar to placing Vampire's Kiss...comedy?...drama?...horror? I chose it because it was Korean and happened to be on one of the indie film channels. That choice was my lucky day!
Once again, not horror per se, but the horrors of the world both inner and outer. The documentary explores a trend of which I was completely unaware. Israeli soldiers serve 3 yrs and service is mandatory. At the end of their service, they receive a large payout bonus and many take this money to travel to India and do drugs. Period. It is terrible to see what 3 years of warring followed by large amounts of marijuana, LSD, ecstasy and whatever-you-have can do to a human mind. I also now know for certain that I don't ever want to go to Goa. Beautiful, but I'm just to old for that game. Kerala State, here I come!
Yes, I know. I'm late to the party. Forgive me! I do love Philip Seymour Hoffman and he is absolutely fantastic in this movie. His rewards thereof were richly deserved. This is definitely a horror film. Truly, how much horrible does it get? A family shot pointblank in their own home for about $40. Random and final. I love Truman Capote. Only the South can create freaks like that (Tennessee Williams, Flannery O'Connor, William Faulkner come immediately to mind and they are just the tippy tip of the iceberg). This film is very much worth your time regardless of your interest. If you don't know the book In Cold Blood and you are a fan of horror, you will find this film of special historical importance.
