Thanks, I'll add it to the Netflix queue.

Unbreakable is extremely good too, yet no one talks about it.

It has Sam Jackson in it with a crazy afro, meaning it gets some points no matter how bad it turned out to be.

I highly reccomend it. Probably give it an 8/10


That movie was unfairly panned...I absolutely loved it. It was totally different as you say, but very cerebral, with a lot going on below the surface. I think it crashed at the box office. Hope that doesn't curb his willingness to take risks.

Shyamalan has a new movie in the works for 2008 called The Happening:

http://imdb.com/title/tt0949731/

Marky Mark is going to be in it.

"A paranoid thriller about a family on the run from a natural crisis that presents a large-scale threat to humanity."

Paranoid thriller

I recently watched (Quentin Tarrantino presents) Hostel, and The hills have eyes and they were both excellent movies imo and I usually don't watch scary movies.

Also The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock is probably one of my favorite movies ever but I don't think it's that scary.

I thought The Hills Have Eyes (remake) was one of the worst films I've seen in the past couple years.

One of my top 10 favourite movies... The idea of a super hero movie just focusing on the origin story appeals to me somehow...

I watched Peter Strab's Ghost Story during my early teens. That scared the crap out of me. Haven't seen a better ghost movie since.
Totally forgot Ghost Story. The occasional shocks (when Alma turns into Eva's corpse & scares everyone) and the overall uneasy tone to the film make it a great ghost movie indeed.

Psycho-subtle implied scary is the best, the way it used to be done

OK! The most disturbing film I have ever seen!!!!


What really sucked about Wolf Creek was this: most horror/slash films have these cardboard-cutout 2 dimensional characters that you don't really root for and you don't really care when they meet their inevitable, bloody-horrific demise.

But Wolf Creek on the other hand, spent almost the first full hour of the film developing these 3 really cool, unique, fully realised and fleshed-out 3 dimensional characters that I really liked and cared about. I was so excited and eager to be on their vacation/adventure with them. I really liked all 3 of them and especially the cute and sweet budding romance between the guy and the one girl.

And then the film spends the last hour following a sadist raping, torturing, hunting down and killing them in the most horrific manner.

I was so upset at that film and I wanted to walk out, but my friend was really enoying it, so I couldn't. (Mental note: re-evaluate friendship!) j/k

Wolf Creek: I HATE IT because it made me care before it ripped my heart out!

Also, I don't know if anyone's mentioned it, but my friend and I watched the orginal "Amityville Horror" with the all the lights out, the window and curtains open, on like an October night and it scared the absolute living hell out of me!

(Of course, as usual, the re-make was nowhere close to as good as the original)

The Silence Of the Lambs/ Hannibal/ The Red Dragon - I'm a big fan of these films.

Silence Of The Lambs, yes. I didn't find Hannibal or Red Dragon all that scary however... IMO

Hannibal had the gore factor down, I'll give it that and I really liked Red Dragon (more than Manhunter) but I didn't find either to have nearly the same edge as SOTL...

Haven't seen The Birds or Psycho, but I have seen Rear Window, and I found that quite boring and tedious, and the climax seen was a little lacklustre.
