You know, this thread would have to be classed as WARNING, and should be avoided, but I'm afraid Larv and elrocho will keep spreading.

We should start a "Rules for Newbies" thread, and I'd suggest the following as a start:

- When expressing your opinion, use the same language as the majority of readers; and,
- Don't threaten to fight someone in PM and then post your picture when you don't know what THEY look like.

I challenge you to write a longer sentence than this. Come on!

Honestly what do you have against new people on here? I have nothing against any old forum members so what is it? Am happy to talk to people with equal respect to others and their threads and would think we can all get along and discuss movies and other things, so I'll see you all around the forum.

He did such a good job of grading and correcting Swedish Miyagi's posts, though. I would do it, but I'm afraid I'm just not up to the task. His grammar skills are sorely needed.

I never understood Nick's affinity with the term 'douche'.



...until now.

Anybody have an opinion on these? Saw them sitting on the shelf at Blockbuster and I hesitated.

I think the Dimension Extreme label is more than enough of a warning. The other two are guilty by association.

Loved it. Wrote a review here.


And Larv, just so you know, the initial jab at you for your grammar/spelling is that the word you meant to use is "piqued". After that, your failure to use punctuation became the major point of discussion.

In case it happens again, at least now you'll know why.

Glad I wasn't the only one who enjoyed it. The Yakuza father had me laughing any time he was in the movie.

I'm also curious. The trailer looks intense, but the Netflix user reviews (not a great barometer) tore it apart. Apparently, the presentation (audio and video) and shaky cam leave much to be desired, and it just kinda ends (to be continued...), but it's a small time investment (70+ min).

I heard it was shit, way back. Apparently the zombie make-up is just smearing a bunch of blood on the people's faces.

Avoid Side Sho like the plague. It's horribly bad, And not in the "So bad it's good" kind of way.

Good to hear about Machine Girl. I saw some photos in Fangoria a while back and became interested. The DVD tempts me everytime I go to Hastings.

Rogue. Yes or no?

Yeah, MACHINE GIRL's worth a look. Pretty pervasive gore, scenery-chewing, etc.

I've been waiting for ROGUE (love the subgenre), so it's going on my list regardless.

It's not out yet, but Tokyo Gore Police is directed by the guy who did the effects for Machine Girl. It looks to be more of the same ridiculous fun.

Check out the trailer here

FEARnet being available OnDemand now*, I watched a movie called Deathwatch recently. It was basically a supernatural take on Carpenter's The Thing, except it takes place during World War I and an abandoned German trench. But I thought it was pretty good, if anything I would have liked to have seen more of Andy Serkis' batshit psycho soldier character. There wasn't enough of him, and big spikey club.

*Though all their movies seem to be presented in full screen only, so fuck you FEARnet.

Drew Maxwell's GUARDIANS or CARNIVOROUS? Can anyone weigh in? Worth tracking down (only GUARDIANS is on Netflix so far)?

In a fit of insomnia I watched Squirm on TV last night. I was shocked at how much I liked it. It's about killer worms attack a red neck town, so I suppose my expectations were low, but it was really well made for a '70s B-flick, and the acting was much more natural that expected. The giant writhing masses of worms towards the end were pretty obviously not real worms, but the director did a good job of intersplicing ECUs of real worms, and he made them 'scream', which was pretty disturbing.

ETA: I just realized the director was Jeff Lieberman, the guy behind Blue Sunshine and Just Before Dawn.

Better than most alligator/croc movies but not as good as ALLIGATOR. The same way no shark movie can ever touch JAWS, nothing can touch ALLIGATOR.

Lake Placid was close, if only for the great sexual tension between Oliver Platt and Brendan Gleeson.

It's just utterly pointless. It commits exactly the same crime as Zombie's HALLOWEEN by trying to offer an explanation for a great movie monster's motivation. This is quickly becoming the cardinal sin of modern horror movies.

Not actually a Troma movie, bought by Troma. It's a charming film because it's so homemade, but it really drags.

I just watched Visiting Hours. It's very well made, and Ironside is awsome, but it's really a psychological thriller, not a horror film or slasher, so I was lefts a little disappointed.

From the director of THE ALIEN FACTOR, eh? Now I know what I'm getting into. Must get beer!
