I don't understand all the horror dislike/hate. I can't stand where it's gone in hollywood, it's just jump scares, bad premises and ****** remakes (anyone see halloween 2? ) but indie films and foreign films usually do them justice. It's a great thing to be legitimately frightened by a movie. I really enjoyed paranormal activity.

I'm a huge horror fan... besides hockey, movies are my thing, and I definatly watch more horror than anything else. What have you seen recently that was good?

There is a little something for everyone. If I was going for horror, I would probably try something along those lines (10 movies):

Centipede (Ridiculous)
Heartless
If a tree falls (Canada)
Rec2 (Sequel)
The last exorcism (Exorcisms are always entertaining)
The life and death of a Porno Gang
T.T. Syndrome
Tucker & Dale vs Evil (Should provide some good laughs)
We are what we are
Wound

HM:
Birdemic (So-bad-it’s-good)
Black death (Mainstream)
Higanjima
I spit on your grave (Remake)
Neverlost (Canada)

Not many horrors lately have been any good. A lot of people hate on it but i can't stress how much i liked paranormal activity. If you watch that movie for the first time, at night, under the covers with your gf, it's just perfect. It doesn't rely on surprise tactics to frighten you, the atmosphere is great and the fact that they didn't rely on special effects (indie film after all). The suspense is great and when something finally happens, it works very well.

I tried watching all the original japanese-horror-movies-that-have-been-remade-in-hollywood movies. Ringu, one missed call all of those. The original Grudge is pretty good.
Also, it's not a horror movie but everyone needs to see Oldboy, fantastic movie.

Phobia2 can be a good choice. The first one(4bia)is not bad. The fact that each short stories have a different directors brings a good idea of the different style of asian horror/scare film.

I saw "I Spit On Your Grave" last night. It was ****ing disturbing as hell. One person actually passed out while walking out of the movie, so they had to close off an exit because there was apparently quite a bit of blood.

The inventor of the gore movie was there Friday last and they showed his first gore movie, Blood Feast, made in 1963 in Florida. Though there was gore in Japanese pictures like "Hell" before then as well as some in Britain's "Curse of Frankenstein" and also in the American black and white movie "Brain that Would Not Die", Blood Feast's whole purpose was to show gore and with long, lingering shots of such.

I wish I had been able to go to the Lewis doc and the free Blood Feast showing but I could not.

I saw Rubber on Sunday though, it was kind of funny but I expected a bit more. I wrote a longer review on the Entertainment board if anyone wants to read it.

Oldboy is so great, I have the three-disc collector's tin of that. Worth every penny! As for the original Japanease movies, most of them are far better than the N.American remakes. Dark Water was a good one. Battle Royale was great, too.

I'm going to six films at this years fest - I'll post my thoughts on them for anybody interested.

Battle royale is so amazing too. I watched them both within days of eachother, fell in love with japanese movies. (or is old boy korean?)

Do movies only show on one day, or can i catch a later showing if it gets good reviews?

Most movies have one showing, some have two, but never more than that. A lot of them are selling out quickly this year though so check fantasiafest.com

Oldboy is a South Korean film btw.

Well, both things I was going to mention were just posted... Oldboy is Korean and Fantasia seems to have just one showing this year. Wasn't always like that. Then again, when I first started going back in 1997, you could buy a pass to the whole damn fest!

Overlords: If you liked Oldboy, did you check out Park Chan Wook's other films? Lady Vengence and Sympaphy for Mr. Vengence? Not as good as Oldboy but still awesome. I picked up his newest film months ago but haven't watchd it yet... it's called Thirst.

I tried to watch lady vengeance twice, but it's so slow. Although i wasn't watching it with.. uh.... complete attention?

and i've heard great things about thirst.

I caught Thirst at the festival last year, it's really good. A bit overlong and overly complex but still highly recommended. The lead actress is amazing.

You all suck for forgetting J.S.A. And you're also forgetting "I'm a Cyborg..." but I can understand that one.

I've only seen Mutant Girls Squad so far, and well, it was pretty much what I expected and then some, which was nice, but also with an introduction with the director, which was kinda weird.

Oh really? I didn't realize it was at Fantasia last year ; the last two years, I didn't get a chance to see very much, for various reasons and I suppose I didn't pay as much attention to the fest as I normally do. I normally keep my programmes and rent as many of the movies that I missed as possible but Thirst was a completly random buy based on the director alone.

The one film I really, really wanted to see from last year was "The Wild Whites Of West Virginia" or something like that - but I haven't found a copy of it yet. Ah well.

What are you going to go see this year?


EDIT: It's "The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia"

Yeah they had two movies about the Whites last year...White Lightnin' was the other one. Didn't see either though.

This year I've already seen Rubber (see above) and I have tickets for A Serbian Film, Fish Story, The Devils, [REC] 2, Red White & Blue, Black Death, The Last Exorcism, The Human Centipede, The Loved Ones and Metropolis.

Nice, I'll be at Black Death also!

I'm also going to Centurion (one of my favorite directors new film & he'll be at the showing), Neverlost, Dissaperrance of Alice Creed, Heartless and Lemmy.

Overlords: You can see which films are sold out on their website - updated daily.

I've got my VIP pass and it's freaking fantastic.

Okay bragging over...

I've see Marwencol, Down Terrace, and The Revenant so far (was away on the weekend).

I've been pleased with all three... Marwencol being the strongest. Definitely check it out, such a fantastic documentary.

I simply cannot wait for Rec 2, The Last Exorcism, Posessed, The Human Centipede, etc.

Ahhhhh.

Mitch
