When I saw the legs I turned it off, that was just too vile even for me and I have seen things in the jungles and hot zones which were patently obscene.

That isn't the toughest scene to see , that happens at the end..
Just a brutal, nihilistic and depressing film.


It was the idea of what was going on there. The rest of the film was pretty brutal, but I am/was used to that.

Cheers

I'll be adding this to my "to watch list."

On a side note, I've worked with one of the actors in it and can say the man is really good at bringing even the smallest of characters to life. He's also a really nice guy to be around, humble... Something that stands out in the industry.

Thanks for pointing this one out, it had slipped right past me.

"You're Next" wasn't bad. Pretty messed up little film. I was wondering when that axe was finally going to fall.

Similarly, the movie "No One Lives" took a pretty unexpected turn. It was a completely different movie than I thought it was going to be.

The original movie posted, "The Den" I haven't seen yet. But it sounds somewhat similar to the movie "Smiley" where a slasher is taking people out over webcam.

I took your advice and watched the den.
It was a bit disturbing, but there were parts where I was just shaking my head.
I love good horror, gore gets boring as does senseless sickos.
Towards the end I liked where it went. Without ruining the story for those who may want to see it (even though they shouldn't read a thread about it first), I think that it was pretty good overall. Personally, I'd kill my computer activity completely if this were happening to me. I wouldn't bother feeding into the direction the film wanted me to go in.

As a side note, I also watched the serbian film a few years ago and the disgust still hasn't left my mind.
I have a mental scar akin to being subjected to 4chan's gore freaks. Sometimes curiosity needs to be left alone.

SPOILER
I too get bored of senseless plots focused on gore and brutalism, and I thought this movie would have been another predictable contemporary slasher flick and would not have chosen to watch it, but it turned out to be pretty entertaining. I like the way it was shot and while the scenes were brutal, they weren't excessive. The effects were impressive though.

I would have shut my computer off also, and these films that show folks having a fetish for snuff films is really disturbing because I feel it is a real element in society.

Some films, as the Serbian one, which I have not watched but saw the trailer, I try to refrain from seeing, as I am careful as to what I expose my mind to. I don't want any scars either. I just thought this was a fresh approach to the genre.

Anyone see Cheap Thrills?
I thought it was pretty decent, worth a watch.
A kind of black comedy, thriller/horror kinda thing.... it is funny but gets quite disturbing too, but never strays into gore or torture porn, which is good

I too thought it a decent movie, I guess I think the gore tends to become a substitute for good writing and can be a cheap way to compensate. Not that I think that The Den was this way, I just feel that way in general. I've seen a few movies over the years where it was an internet/computer based serial killer, it is a good concept, and I'm glad it hasn't been beat to death like other slasher types.

I haven't seen Cheap Thrills as of yet. I may DL it if the trailer catches my eye.
I'm grabbing Seven Samauri right now for a change of pace. My son is into samauri anime and I wanted him to see the original inspiration for those animations.

While in this thread, I'd like to recommend Cabin in the Woods for those who yet to see this great movie.
Talk about many interpretive layers, you'd have to view it a few times between reading threads to catch all the hidden things.

Have not seen it but will check it out. It looks different, blending humor with horror, should be entertaining.
Thanks

Yes Cabin in the Woods is excellent too! My roommate(girl) made me watch Hanna last night. It is not a horror flick, and I thought it was just another girl kicks arse movie and didn't care to see it, but it was well done also. Tis a sic-fi action-thriller so to say. Just thought I'd mention it while here.

Hanna seems to have been on tv a lot this year. My Kids really like watching it.
It always reminds me of The Professional.

Yeah saw Cabin in the woods in the cinema, will have to rewatch for sure.

With Cheap Thrills it's funny because there are actually a few of these "I dare you to do crazy s***" kind of movies coming out.

Would You Rather
Cheap Thrills
13 Sins


They all seem to have a similar premise although they all vary in some way.

I've only seen "Cheap Thrills" and as I said, definitely worth a watch, and something different but it's never going to win any awards I'm sure.

Dear fellow ATS users.
May I recommend a great horror movie that was recommended to me by Brian Wilshire.
A legend in Australia on talkback radio with a cult following on 2GB am radio.
He originally got a lot of what is discussed here on chemtrails, echelon, etc.
The movie is called "The Hostel"
Very disturbing.
The real disturbing part from friends in the police force and movie business is it is based on real events that actually happened.
