I have watched loads of films over the last few weeks i will start with non-horror then get to the good stuff! Ok i watched the avengers & i fuckin loved that i watched it straight after watching iron man 2! then i watched x-men first class & i thought that was pretty damn good aswell & the best x-men film so far. A couple of days ago i watched men in black 3 (pretty funny!) & after that i watched prometheus which i thought was a epic fail well maybe not epic fail but defo a case of style over substance. Lastly non horror i watched snow white & the huntsman dont ask me why i was just drunk.... anyway goes without saying that it was a pan of boiling shit!
HORROR! HORROR! HORROR!
I have been very busy! in the last couple of weeks i have been ploughing through all my Italian dvds so demons/the beyond/house by the cemetery/city of the living dead/zombi 2/phenomena/dont torture a duckling/ratman/dellamorte dellamore/zombie holocaust/cannibal holocaust have been rewatched(to name a few) & i replaced a few with dvd upgrades MORE EXTRAS makes me happy!
i brought a couple of new French films that i still need to watch one is a animated one consisting of short storys called "fear[s] of the dark" & one called "prey" the fears film has the praises of Guillermo Del Torro so it better be good!
Japanese classics i rented hausu & kwaidan, hausu is a easy 10/10 if you are into wacky original films but kwaidan suffers because the third story is to long & boring for me the second story is my favourite "the woman in the snow" what i suggest is if you havent seen kwaidan when you watch it dont watch the storys in order skip the 3rd one & watch it last OR just watch one story a day (you will just have to trust me on this advice).
on Dakotamoons advice i have been watching Jean Rollin films French sex & gore madness so far so good with "grapes of death" & the "living dead girl" i will be ordering them, tonight i have "night of the hunted" to check out
finally streaming wise i watched the vomit gore trilogy "slaughtered vomit dolls" "ReGOREgitated sacrifice" & "slow torture puke chamber" these have to be seen to be believed! blood/nudity/piss/puking/degridation & all manor of other wierd shit! A film i highly recomend that seems to have been over looked by most the horror community is "death stop holocaust" which is a grindhouse type film quite artistic aswell for a slasher nice camera work & the killers look great you have a horse & pig head mask. The last film i will mention is "the gore gore girls" Herschell Gordon Lewis the film is a total sleaze ball gorey camp fest just the kind of trash i need from time to time
just remembered a few more! case 39 i decided to watch after deliberatly avoiding it because of renee zellweger but i actually really liked it & would have watched it sooner had i known Jodelle Ferland was the co star she was brilliant in silent hill! 1408 with John Cusack i saw a few days ago & i thought it was pretty shit to be honest, no atmosphere & way overrated the last film i saw this overrated was "cabin in the woods"
other films watched/rewatched: cherynobl diarys/stir of echos/exit humanity/nightmare city/deadfall trail/the abomination/the divide/piranha 3DD/frostbite/silent house(original)/evilspeak/the rage/let me in/uzumaki/evil dead trap/anatomy/eden log/troll hunter/island of death/alligator(1980)/livide
Anyone got anything they want to say about any of the films i have mentioned? Or have any of the films i mentioned brought another film into your thoughts?
