Re: A Serbian Film

It wasnt until after I found out about what happened did I go back and see all the innuendo in the movies

Re: A Serbian Film

Just from what Ive heard on the film, it makes me sick to my stomach, in no way is this movie art. Like seriously? new born rape? If I ever see the fuck that made this he will be leaving in a ambulance. I really dont get why people like these sort of films, someone with a mental problem could see this film and go out on his own little spree. Now I dont neccesarily think that horror movies turn people into killers because well alot of you are some of the nicest people I know but it has happened before because of films like this. And what is this movie trying to accomplish with baby rape? I have never and WILL never see this trash and I hope no one else will either. It literally brings a tear to my eye when I hear about this kind of shit film making. In my opinion these film makers should be charged.

Re: A Serbian Film

If you'd watch the film you'd see its purpose is not to arouse the viewer in any way. And the fact that some might be aroused is irrelevant, too - some weirdos out there probably get aroused by the site of fruit pies in a film.  The director isn't serving up a moral lesson here either and considering the content of the film I would hope you wouldn't need one, actually.  It's not for everyone, but there are far greater (and all too real) threats to children out there that far outweigh the exaggerated circumstances seen here.
Keep repeating to yourself - it's only a movie.

Re: A Serbian Film

Let it be noted also that the whole 'child thing' that goes on here is just the culmination of a whole series of increasingly deplorable situations the main character is exposed to and is in no way a chief focus of the film - if anyone may be thinking such.

Re: A Serbian Film

I really need to see this movie after reading this thread.

Nice to see so many people would love to see a movie that they probably haven't even seen censored.  Gives me so much faith in the next generation and their respect for the first amendment.
As long as no people are harmed in the making of a movie, who really gives a fuck.  If you don't like it, cut it off.

Re: A Serbian Film

fruit pies.

c'mon just admit it, mdc  LOL

Re: A Serbian Film

As far as the film went, I'm not going to say I didn't feel compassion for the main character, because I did.  I appreciate, a lot of other things about this film.  Despite my detest for the molestation.  Does anyone feel there are ANY lines thought should be drawn?  Or should we, as film lovers accept anything?  I think, in everyone's core, there are things we'd prefer to not see filmed.

Re: A Serbian Film

I thought the production values and acting were great and the score and soundtrack worked well and the dollops of gore were top notch.  I think the film makers are almost shooting themselves in the foot for including a few of those scenes which can easily overwhelm more sensitive viewers, however.  But in film I believe anything goes as long as it harms none in the making of it. When you're dealing with Horror it's all about tapping into our fears, exploring the psyche and invading our safe places.  This film totally attempts to do that on certain levels.  And yes, there are some things I prefer not to see, but that's what I have a fast-forward button on my remote for.

Re: A Serbian Film

touche, deadhorse

Re: A Serbian Film

so this means I'm 'touched', huh?

Moms always said I was special

Re: A Serbian Film

you know, in all seriousness, as much as I did find the infant and son thing disturbing, it was actually the increasing abuse of the female that got to me a little more because it took up more screen time.  You could probably excise the "infant porn!" snippet and even with that bleakest of endings make things somewhat more palatable to a wider audience, but again I respect the rights of the film makers to bring to the screen what they see fit - for better or for worse.

Fuck man you watch films the way I do (in our ouw head  I had to thro that in)
Like wow who draws the line.... grandna got decapitated grandpa got his testicles eatin by a little creature that was in the form of a little girl. But when a child is abused in a FUCKING movie all hell breaks loose. Like come on we are here for that so don't put down a movie just because it freaks you out. Thats what its about!

Re: A Serbian Film

Right on!

And who here is standing up for the rights of Grandpa's testicles I ask you?
No one.  That's who.

Re: A Serbian Film

But if grandpa had been raped as a young boy on film in a flashback, then they'd care about his old testicles.

Re: A Serbian Film

sorry demon, my guns are stuck!  infant rape...more extreme than child rape, or any rape.  BIG difference. 

deadhorse, grandpa's testicles are in my teacup, as we speak.  (grandpa issues)

Re: A Serbian Film

What I like is all of the contradiction that's going on in this thread and the other. I've seen people bitching about PG13 horror films a countless number of times on this site because they like their horror film to be "horrific". But then when they get something that is actually horrific they bitch and cry about it. Make up your minds.

And honestly, I don't think A Serbian Film is anymore disturbing than Salo, The Girl Next Door and a whole slew of other horror films that have been around for years and it's no more disgusting than the Vomit Gore Trilogy or the Guinea Pig Films. And by the way, the infant abuse is nothing new either. Watch 'Seed'.

Re: A Serbian Film

Stuck guns is ancient thinking... its you know Im not gonna explainm it a child in a maniacs hands is ......... I aint gonna explain it cause I aint a child murderer but they might creep into a horror movie. Now anything goes disturb me I paid for it...

Re: A Serbian Film

Hey fluttergirl..... theres nothing left to disturb us horror movie fans! It's all been done even the remakes aren't disturbing enough. I guess and this is not a happy thought at all, but I guess wee gotta wait for the true loonies to freak us to death , than wait for a year or two and make a movie of the m ??
Now thats fucked but the movie going public will go but if a made up baby rape is a nono. Now you tell me where the.....

Someone with a mental problem could see ANYTHING and go on a spree based on it.  This film doesn't really give any cool new ways to kill anyone.  I could go to my dvd/blu ray collection and give you 50 movies far more creative and "negative inspiration" than this.  I think it's rather shallow to say you'll never watch this movie and to condemn the filmmakers.  How many horror movies on this site are talked about in high regard with ACTUAL crimes connected to them IE Friday the 13th, Texas Chainsaw, Halloween, etc.....but no complaints about that?  Really?  Come on dude.  The scenes in which you talk about, specifically the new born scene....if you watch it, it's the most fake thing, the skull fucking looks more realistic.  It's not a real baby, you can't see anything but the motions....that's it.  You have no right to judge anything without seeing it.  If you watch it and still have the same opinions, alright, at least you proved your'e a horror fan and gave it a chance.

Re: A Serbian Film

future of horror movies is going?

Re: A Serbian Film

yeah, still can't bring myself to watch salo, mostly because of the feces eating, ewwww.  I'll say it again, people have boundaries suspiria .  I haven't seen 'Seed' either.  This isn't a witchhunt.  Maybe I'm just not hardcore.  (sarcasm)  Everyone has an opinion, I guess I would rather see people hacked up or eaten.  Over the age of newborn, that is.  Sorry, movie touched a nerve with me and a lot of other people.  I've seen a lot of dead babies (portered at a hospital), and it's kind of messed up.  wait, that's hardcore.

Re: A Serbian Film

yeah sus, I've been just as alarmed by Salo, AU, Girl Next Door and even Requiem For A Dream and Kids to name a few of the guiltiest suspects.  A little film called Feed about force feeding even made me cringe something fierce.  I love when a film creeps me out.  These all have.

Re: A Serbian Film

Well everyone has killed everyone in a way that isn't gonna break new grounds garden. It isnt about how to kill its gotta be about how OR get into the MIND of the fuckin killer. I got movies like that. NOt supernateratural just fucked up persons.

Movies do NOT CREATE OR HELL THAT WE HEAR ON THE NEWS
thats a different hell if only yu knew

Re: A Serbian Film

Movies are always a scapegoat.  I still blame everything on parenting.  I know that if I ever killed anyone my mom would be SO pissed at me, lol
