I tried watching another Paranormal Activity the other night, it was painful. There were about two decent moments, the rest was a cobbled together mess of scenes and ideas stolen from other far far superior horror movies, with dreadful acting performances and hideous progression of story. It was the fourth installment and jeez, the way they attempted to suggest a link between that and the third was hilarious. This franchise really devalues the concept of horror and gives absolutely no wisdom or opinion or viable interpretation to the paranormal aspect. It makes NO sense!!

One film that really made me jump is Rec.

I thought that movie was just grotesque, not scary at all. Rec was a good one though

The most scariest, twisted, grotesque, sick and deranged movie I've never seen is A Serbian Film.
They say 8mm is a Disney movie in comparison, and it seems that way.
I would never defile my senses by watching this movie, I've heard enough of it retold to me so that I can dub it the most scariest and sick movie I've never seen.

Linda was extemely well protected and informed on set and many of the more gruesome and unsightly things were done by a double, it was most definitely a demanding role and to deal with the fallout and maturity of the role, she sure had to be a resolute and resplendent young woman!

For me its: Threads. A BBC production.

I will admit that I wasn't able to watch the entire thing. I stopped watching when a woman started eating a radiated dead sheep. Didn't cook it and she used her hands as utensils.:/

lol @ A Serbian Movie, that's just plain wrong. I think by mentioning this flick, it breaches several terms of agreement on these boards :whistle: 120 Days of Sodom is pretty effed up, the Guinea Pig series, The ABCs of Death.

I cant wait to see the conjuring, It actually looks scary. The advert for the movie made jump a little, and thats never happened to me before.

I don't know if Session 9 was ever mentioned but that movie creeeeeeeeped me out, big time.  I also thought Shutter Island was phenomenal, not really scary though

Session 9 was very interesting, just thinking about the line 'I live in the weak and wounded, doc' just gave me the goosebumps eek! I really love the place it was filmed too, the infamous Danvers State Mental Hospital, riveting history as with all buildings of that era.

Shutter Island is a brilliant movie, whilst the plot is not particularly fresh now, the execution and little nuances are really stimulating and Di Caprio's performance with the ending being the stand out for me, is phenomenal. Under rated actor when you think about the depth of the man's career so far.

I am slightly interested in The Conjuring also. I saw a couple trailers and the scares seem above the average that are around in horror recently. The 'BASED ON A TRUE STORY' puts me off though. I doubt the plot will be all that interesting but a few scenes may be worth the watch from what I gather.

Yeah Session 9 is kind of a hard movie to figure out, I'm still not positive but believe it was  a demon that was the one that said ' I live in the weak and wounded doc' its creepy nevertheless,

I loved Shutter Island and own it, I will say Di Caprio is pretty underrated, Along with James Franco. they both can be pretty diverse in the roles they take on.

Yeah I think it was the same demon as the case or session that was ongoing through the film that the guy was listening to. There's a couple of films that seem to be zeroing in on filming in old asylums, I hope it doesn't become the new quick buck trend. One of the ones I saw was called Grave Encounters or something, it was pretty dumb and mostly relied on the ambience of the setting to make it interesting.

I think Di Caprio would be very convincing if he took on a (REAL) horror film, I suppose the premise (and reward ratio) would have to be intriguing and able to make a lot of money to interest him. Shutter Island was more a thriller of course but he was certainly not in a comfort zone, one of the reasons I respect his acting skills.
