Wow...gold star for honesty! LOL. I think a lot of us have an attraction to gore, but most would not have the balls to phrase it in such overt terms!

Sadly I stay mainstream with regard to movie rentals, I won't buy them. Cannibal Holocaust, August Underground, etc... are just not available through Blockbuster. Then again I also really like quality acting, and well, the two may be linked.

Just saw the film "Inside". Some unbelieveable parts to the plotline but pretty decent nontheless.

Its a French filmed dubbed in English.

Yeah I have been watching more foreign films lately too. Most aren't horror themed though.

The characters seem to be more quirky and reality based in many cases, more subtle than in the majority of American films.

But then again usually only the best foreign films end up in the U.S., and with subtitles I sometimes wonder if the lack of multitasking figures in. You have to watch every bit of it to read what they are saying, can't play online, or go get a drink or whatever, they demand constant attention and maybe that adds to the intensity of the film.

Great post, I think Peter Jackson's Bad Taste has got to be up there when it comes to dark humour and extremely graphic bloodspatteerd alien gore:


"I'm a Derek and Dereks don't run!"

Sonya610, I may have turned you off to Bad Boy Bubby with one scene in a two hour movie - please please please see this film! It is awe-inspiring.

13 Hours In A Warehouse -- Not a bad flick. Production quality is a bit low, but the acting is good. Five guys pull of an art heist and spend the night in a warehouse waiting for the buyer along with a female hostage . The dingy warehouse was used for making "porn films". Fairly descent plot, interesting characters, low budget but has some creepy scenes. Not stellar, but pretty dark and worth watching, especially if you found the Ring somewhat scary.

Well if it is not graphic violence I will give it a shot. Thanks for the recommendation!

Hey!! Just here to recommend some more flicks.

I just watched Freeway 1&2 the other day, and they freaking rocked. They are both very losely based on fairytales. Pt 1 is red riding hood with Kiefer Sutherland as the wolf, (not actually a wolf), and Reese Witherspoon as LRRH. It is so funny, and sooo f'd up. Pt 2 was my favorite, Natasha Lyonne is Hansel, and another plays girl plays gretel. They escape from prison to go to 'sister gomez' to seek refuge. In one scene, instead of laying bread crumbs down to find their way back like the fairytale, they like crack rocks instead. lol. All Iam gonna say is that both flicks are completely insane off the wall, gritty, funny, and the characters are screwed up and likeable.

If you like grindhouse, gory melt movies, see Street Trash. It is not for everyone, there are some disturbing parts. Like the part when the bums of the junkyard play keep away with a severed phallus. Fun movie!! Its about a bunch of bums, and this liquor store found some old stock of these pint bottles of booze called Viper. Once its consumed, you melt into a bunch of pretty, oozey colors. If you like Toxie and that sort of thing, check it out.

Also, on the subject of foreign movies, some movies you must buy the original version. If you end up buying an englished dubbed movie, sometimes they are completely different from the original version, and you miss out on what was intended for the viewer.

I also believe that all movies need constant attention, not just foreign. When I watch a movie, Iam glued to the tv. I try not to miss anything because sometimes you'll end up missing some beautiful camera angles, shots, or subtle messages or points a director or writer is trying to make. The only thing I have against subtitles is sometimes, I have to read them real quick, and then try to take in the entire frame at the same time, and I may miss something. Foreign films are great, and its a shame alot of people will miss out on some greatmovies just because they have to do a little extra to see a movie.

Hmmm I always liked the original Phantasm... though the sequels I thought were kinda crappy.

There was a brit movie called A Shallow Grave that I liked... though it was more of a suspense/horror sort of deal.

And just for laughs... From Dusk Till Dawn

Phantasm did have some creepy parts, especially for the 70's. Those hooded little troll guys were unsettling.

Shallow Grave was also a very entertaining movie; a drama/suspence movie with morbid overtones and lots of good plot twists. The same director did Trainspotting.

Along that same line, if you have never seen Blood Simple (older American film from the 80's) that is one you might enjoy, it is another good thriller with morbid overtones. And Romeo is Bleeding is another odd suspense film that some may like, a crooked cop is involved with three females, wife, mistress, and sociopathic russian mobster played by Lena Olin (this film probably mostly appeals to those that like homicidal dominant females, though, as the plot is scattered but it has some intense scenes).

Just watched Mother of Tears by Dario Argento. Interesting film, kind of campy but lots of good scenery/settings (set in Rome), and plenty of hard core gore.

I am surprised enjoies has not talked about it on here, it is right up his alley. Based on the “Evil Mother Witch” theme like Suspiria, but a modern film with a lot of graphic sexual violence inflicted on buxom dark haired women. Those that enjoy gore, demonic plotlines, and graveyard settings will enjoy this film.

The trailer is tamer than the actual movie…

Rosemary's Baby anyone. I saw this years ago in an altered state of mind and had no idea what I was getting into. An oldie but a goodie for sure.

I completely agree! Those are the only movies I can watch again and again. He is a genius. And his characters are just fantastic, so twisted yet so likeable.

Though I read his next film is going to be some animated erotic movie of sorts. Wish he would stick to producing horror movies instead.

On a little different note; I was on the way to the zoo this weekend with the kids when my son spotted a comic book store. We went in (he and his little brother love anything that can fly and blast things) and they got a couple comics and I got two harbound volumes of Tales From the Crypt - as a kid I loved that! My oldest son (six going on seven) sat for an hour on the floor going through the Crypt stories...he's hooked. Anything that can get the imagination going, imo...

I loved it too! That was the only comic book I ever got interested in. Youth maybe fleeting but immaturity can last a lifetime!

I will add my two cents. I don't particulary enjoy anything to do with torture and graphic violence so I may not be able to add much here.

But...one of my favs was Shaun of the Dead (dark humor)

Next, which this one I found to be very dark and disturbing on a psychological level was 8MM with Nick Cage.

Yeah 8mm was a bit dark, I loved it though.

If you liked Shaun of the Dead you might also like "The Cottage" and "Severence". Both have witty Brit humor, particularly the Cottage, I thought that movie was hilarious.
