It seems to me the most bizarre things get to me, Like when I saw The Happening, I was pretty damn freaked out when there in the cabin and that old woman starts to bang her head against the window. I dont know why that scene got to me but I remember thinking about that scene later that night when I was in bed.  Also the scene where there at the school and the kids are having a concert, and they stop playing all of a suddenly and then start to kill themselves, by shoving the flutes down there own throats....Ugh

Well I have a friend and she is so funny! ;) every time I see her it's like "omg! Have you seen the human centipede?!" I'm like "no" she's like "good it's so scary" so me, her and my other friend then go and watch the trailer with her facing away from the screen. She is scared so easily.
I really wanted to go and see 'mama' it look well good on the trailer but for anyone who watched it is it worth watching? I'm not really a horror person but mama looked ok. :D

I watched the lords of salem the other day...turned it off halfway through. I know rob zombie films have an aqired taste but this was just utter garbage. oh and (SPOiLER ALERT) casting his wife as the main star was a bold move i think.. A bit egotistical.

That is why I love The Shining, you have a gorgeously shot film crammed with bizarre conundrums and a very loose plot and the novel just drips deep dark misery and fantasy through the pages. Both born from the same concept yet colossally different, Kubrick completely subverted King's story to suit his own agendas. Therefore you have a great book if you don't like the film! So many spooky elements were left from the film, the creeping hedge animals would have been an effective addition.

The main complaint people have about the Shining is that Jack Nicholson already looks like he's ready to kill somebody with an ax even during the job interview. Who would hire that freak?

If I remember the book, Jack is a guy who had problems in the past but in the beginning of the book he seems like a nice sympathetic guy who's trying to better his life and family. The spirits that inhabit the hotel subvert him into becoming evil but it's slow and subtle transformation that brings back his problems with alcohol and anger. He's fascinated by the hotel and its history which makes him more coercible by the spirits. The movie's Jack doesn't care about the hotel and immediately starts wandering around in a grouchy mood for no reason before he goes nuts.

I dont like anything that involves demons (except Hellboy).
So I have seen The Exorcist like 3 or 4 times, but I have had dreams with demons in it, so I am very careful of the types of movies I end up watching :unsure2:

I watched "Mama" on a flight to Europe last month and was very disappointed.  I didn't like it at all.  I'm a huge horror movie fan, but there was nothing that was interesting about this flick, unfortunately.  I had high hopes, too.

/\ One of the best scenes in history!!! LIGHT. OF. MY. LIFE. :D

Yes Scowl, I agree with much of that. Kubrick really just vacuumed the life and complexities from out of Jack Torrance and Wendy. There is so much packed into the novel that outlines and shades in and suggests the methods to their flaws (and I suppose madness) that were just waiting to be unlocked by the sombre energies of that hotel. He created a painting really, not something that will bend if you touch it as you just can't get anywhere near to the damn surface, it's just all over the darn place trynna keep that film in one comfortable place in your interpretations :D

Kubrick mostly used it as a vehicle for his own messages and themes, such is the arrogance of his artistry, two magnificent takes on one central column imo.

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air and deep beneath the rolling waves, in labyrinths of coral caves, The echo of a distant tide comes willowing across the sand and everything is green and submarine...

Yeah I didn't really know what to think of the shinning when I first saw it,  I'm a fan of Stanley kubricks though, so I ended up liking it. Kubrick is a great director, I own A ClockWork Orange and also 2001: A Space oddessey

I haven't seen A Clockwork Orange yet as I need to read the story, Full Metal Jacket and 2001 are just as beautifully shot, the latter falling into the same bizarre assault as The Shining :lol: 2001 is creepy because it's so surreal yet at the same time REAL. Space is always a disturbing reality. That is why films set there can automatically play the isolated theme, just a pure expanse of little dots and vast blackness. I wonder if a horror film set in space will ever carry the same impact that Alien did. The first two are fantastic at building up suspense and bleakness.

I read A ClockWork Orange, not an easy book to get through because the characters use there slang and its like none other Iv ever heard. Great book though.  The thing about 2001: A space Oddessey is that computer intelligence HAL9000, that monotone voice it speaks in is pretty scary in my opinion.

I'm looking forward to giving it a read when I finally get onto it! Yeah that voice just perfectly connotes artificial intelligence and the spooky caricature it presents, that's why movies like The Matrix and Terminator freak me out, could be a real possibility as technology gets more and more complex and cunning. With movie monsters like The Thing and Alien and vampires etc etc at least you have a black and white coloured cartoon to readily accept as an enemy. With films such as The Exorcist, The Shining and The Matrix, the enemy is so much more detailed and textured.
