Re: Horror With A Message

I rewatched Trolljegeren (Troll Hunter) yesterday. It's deals out some pretty mean punches to Norwegian healthcare.

Heh.  I tried reading that but was quickly turned off by its token psychoanalysis.  I've never read a book written by someone who likes to hear herself talk (or read herself write) as much as Clover apparently does. hmm

agreed.. though i think she's still pretty right on with much of the stuff she said... and from what I can tell, Clover's analysis had a huge impact on the genre.. I'm guessing Wes Craven based Scream on a lot of Clover's ideas..

28 Days Later expresses the dangers of animal experimentation but that's fairly obvious.

Sunlite - Hope it's got a bunch of our hopes up.  smile

Alright, so what do y'all think of it?

Pretty good.  Interesting.  Loved the song it opened and closed with.

The murder was pretty disturbing.  Hated it actually.

Didn't think it was as good as you did, but a solid flick.

Re: Horror With A Message

I just saw "IRREVERSIBLE" last night and was simply blown away.  So I just had to bring it up in this thread. 

For a long time I've heard that this movie was a "must see" and now I totally agree.  I don't know if anyone can correctly label it "a horror movie".  Yet, by the fantastic way this film was done, I'd say at the very least, it's the equivalent of "PULP FICTION" on steroids.
