General Horror Discussion
Horror here! Get your general horror discussion here!
i can only have respect for the man that is the legend that is john carpenter
he has been pretty much my idol in horror since i first learned how to tie my shoe lace and his movies still live on to this day,halloween, prince of darkness, they live , the fog , the thing
now i'm not being funny but maybe the only other director that comes close is that guy with the big glasses who is famous for those dead movies lol
but hes all zombie , where as carpenter is the whole thing!
so how is it that he is so good at creating horror movies ?
Here we go another found footage movie , really another one , how many do we have to put with ?
now I haven't a real problem with them and infact some of them are actually great
blair witch project for me is a stand alone flick and all the rest I feel are halves , but the concept I really find cool
i don't mind the shakey cam , I find it adds to the whole film pleasure ok not the whole way through but ,,,,
anyway let me hear some of your thoughts on found footage and let's have a chat !!!!
Since the on slaught of blair witch Independant film making has become as big as ever , I'm not just talking the found footage style of film making but making films in general
it would seem that u can make a movie these days on your phone and it become a hit or atleast get you noticed
It's almost like a trend or fashion accessory to have the next best thing , I have to admit that the market is huge and there are some pretty good talented film makers out there, more so than ever before
I have been brought up on the stuff , I haven't had it thrown down my throat but was introduced to it from an early Age , 80's horror was my decade and the likes of the thing , American werewolf in london and the shining have pretty much stuck with me till this day!
there is really nothing more fitting than getting a good horror out and dimming the lights cracking a cold beer and seeing what envelopes in front of u
there's so much more but I want to hear from u
so tell me why do you love the horror?
While I'm joining FearNET mainly because I've just worked on and released something you might dig, I've been a fan of the genre as long as I can remember.
The first horror movie that scared the pissy shit out of me was The Gate (I was six and the man in the wall was my undoing) and the only two horror movies that have really affected me in a while have been In The Mouth Of Madness (love me some Lovecraft) and Sinister (more the sounds than the sights).
Just wanted to say hi.
What new movies are you looking forward to in 2014?
For me, Green Inferno, the new Poltergeist, and REC4 but I'm most excited for Godzilla!
Anyone else agree that they should contine with HorrorFest?
any horror sequels or prequels coming out this year
