Re: More French Brutality: Martyrs Trailer!

I just LOVE french horror, my god they are good at it. . . . The thing that the French understand is that to make a successful horror movie, or any movie, you need to first start with EXCELLENT ACTORS, which they do, not FAKE, PLASTIC, SUPER TEETH WHITENING, NOSE JOB "C" actors, great actors with distinctive and unusual faces, . . . REAL PEOPLE. .  Then they just use the same formula that has been winning them International awards for years. . . I think that it has just been pretty recent, a whole European wave of good movies to make it across the ocean. . . I'm pretty sure it started with 28 days Later, . in my opinion it changed horror forever, for the better. the way we look at horror, .  they treat it as a REAL movie, not a horror movie, which right away makes it believable, . . .  and the Lighting, . . ahh, the lighting. . I am a lighting freak. . I notice BAD lighting before any of my friends, and since I pointed it out to them, they want to KILL me. LOL...........Europeans have a knack for incredible lighting technique. . . Not that fake Hollywood super bright room even when it's dark lighting, but very REAL, carefully thought out lighting that sets mood, and then they just tell a story, they don't use a crappy same old bunch of teens formula that's like in every US horror movie out there.. . Go watch some old Hitchcock or Orson Wells movies, that was lighting and shadowing . . fucken brilliant.........sorry ranting
