they've ruined that whole concept now with the films like '28 days later' and the new 'dawn of the dead'.

i just hope they don't start making running zombies in video games like resident evil, it will lose all its appeal.


go read World War Z.

it blows all zombie movies out of the water for creep factor and realism. It was written by Mel Brooks' son and it is one hell of a dark comedic take on society, complete with its own version of shock and awe vs. the zombie hordes.

Is Saw III seriously good? The second one was okay.. I was almost disappointed, but the storyline behind the guy who started the games and the gore saved it from falling into the abyss of crap. The first one was *awesome*...



Umm, well,I like movies that give you some background and SAWIII,much like Saw II, does that. To me, Saw II and Saw III were better because at least in those there was some idea about why the guy was doing what he was doing. In Saw I, I had no idea why the guy was doing what he was doing. I don't like that.I like a lot of background information.

horror/slasher flicks are best served like they were in the 80's. teens getting killed, most graphically, for being teens (sex, drugs etc). the ending is a neat tidy wrap up of why the killer was doing all that killing. fade out as hand moves, alerting the audience that a sequel is in the works.

asking for more than that is like asking for plot in your porn. it helps tell the story but who the hell cares about the story?

I'm a bit of a horror "purist" and I'm going to play Devil's advocate here...if you think about it, there aren't that many HORROR movies coming out. Movies like Saw, Hostel and the like are not, by definition, HORROR movies. These are movies that really just take advantage of the horror genre as an excuse to get away with excessive violence and gross images. Don't get me wrong, they're ok movies, but not HORROR.

Anyway, this is even worse than an influx of horror movies. I think we're beocming more leniant with violence and there are so many directors and writers in America that want to be able to make "horror" flicks as good as the ones that are being made overseas. Lately, the only "horror" movies to do well in America are remakes and adaptations of older horror movies and it pisses me off beyond belief. Can no one make an ORIGINAL horror movie anymore?

If you want to see new actual HORROR movies, try Gravedancers or maybe even The Descent. Don't waste your time with remakes of older, better movies (the only exception to this was the remake of The Hills Have Eyes but they already started filming a sequel, so I'm pissed about that, too).

its a shame that they don't go back to the old style of hammer, but special effects rulke today, and they do not make a scary movie, really.

to many special effects and crap acting, don't project anything more than you have seen before.

I think this is becoming more popular because of the rising number of homicides and gruesome events in the US. We have become much more violent in killings and just the killings themselves are becoming more and more common. I think it has been a norm now, like divorce or car accidents and now this is a rising fear. Who wouldn't be scared of a movie about deranged killers after innocent people?
