    I saw AoD when I was 14/15, cementing how I viewed Ash. The Ash in the first one is not the Ash I watched numerous times before seeing number one and two. Does that make #1 a ‘bad’ movie? No. The order I watched them in almost ruined the first one for me. That, and the tree rape caught me off guard.

    I’ll give her another go now that a lot of time has passed.

    Evil Dead was one of the first horror movies I ever saw, when I as about 18. I love all the series.

    I saw Evil Dead, then Army of Darkness, then Evil Dead II. I'm almost done with the show, which also rocks.

    The Lost Boys is one of the best vampire movies of the 1980s.

    I adore Army of Darkness, but not a fan of the original. I’ll have to try it again. I think I saw them in reverse order, so that’s probably why.
    I absolutely saw them in reverse order which made me appreciate the first two more. How can one not love the "ahhhh" Ash's dead girlfriend does at 1:39 as she leaps into the darkness????

    I always forget that The Hitcher remake is a Platinum Dunes movie.
    I'm not being dramatic, I just feel like I'm going to throw up my heart and my head is going to fly away like a bird.

    The Texas chainsaw massacre 1974 really remains a hugely unsettling and nasty piece of work, despite featuring almost no gore. Second sight's 40th anniversary restoration blu-ray yields a pretty fantastic picture in spite of the 16mm film stock used to film the movie. Grainy as hell but it feels filmic and untampered with, and thus nicely detailed.

    Criterion's 50th anniversary restoration of Night of the Living Dead looks outrageously good. As for the movie itself? I liked it quite a bit more than my first viewing of it although I find some of it a bit crummy. Judith O Shea (Barbra) isn't very convincing, for being a movie about a siege so to speak, the tension isn't permanent although it picks up once the people in the basement show themselves. Rules established aren't always followed. Why does the [
    ] when news reports (and actual imagery) clearly indicate the dead feast on the flesh of the living? A bridge too far for Romero? Doesn't matter heaps, it's still a shocking scene, one can only imagine how that played out in 1968. Finally, the corpse at the top of the stairs is shown to have a completely mangled face, but 30 minutes later, when Ben drags it away, we clearly see that its face is pretty much intact.

    I loved Firestarter. That movie has a great cast and that Tangerine Dream score is unreal.

    Blumhouse wants to do one. Maybe Stephen King will like their adaptation more. I did feel that the George C. Scott character was probably more fleshed out in the book, which I didn't read.

    Has anyone else here seen the original Ju-On: The Grudge (2002)? I finally watched it today after years of putting it off and was massively let down by it. Usually I love Japanese horror, but I mostly just found it slow, repetitive and boring. The sound design and the imagery are cool, but other than that, it didn't really do too much for me. Perhaps I wasn't in the right mindset at the time, because the rest of the movies I watched today after that were pretty great.

    Own it. Scared the absolute shit out of me when I blind bought it way back in the day. I prefer part 2 because feels like it makes more sense. Neither of them make much sense, but if you crank the sound up they are terrifying collection of creepy ass nightmare fuel.

    May have seen it. I believe I found it more grotesque than scary. Same with Ringu.

    I feel like the Asian horror wave of the late 90s / early 2000s has largely not aged very well.

    Mostly due to it all having been so overdone. Not only were there a million of them in a small span of time, but almost every one that received any kind of attention from western audiences was then remade in America, also within that short time span.

    Add on to that unending spoofs and parodies, and it's all just very stale now.

    I watched it right before the remake came out- and was blown away how mediocrely average of a median midpoint it was (outside of the opening scene). Same with Pulse.

    Pulse is one of the few Asian horrors from the time that holds up marvelously well. Most of Kurosawa's films do.

    Though I find now that Pulse is more horrific in how desperately sad it is, than how outright scary it is.

    I agree with this. I love Pulse but theres still that one panning shot where the shadow of the camera is blatant that drives me up the wall lol

    The woman coming out from behind the couch still sends shivers down my spine.

    Enjoyed some great horror during the past week, including The Babadook and Blood and Black Lace. But I mainly came in here to say that Society is the grossest, most vile, disgusting movie I've ever watched. Screaming Mad George steals the show with outrageous practical effects. Like the South Park disclaimer says, this "should not be viewed by anyone."

    I've liked all of the Asian horror I've seen so far ranging from Ring to Dark Water. Ju-On was near great. I have little desire to watch the American remakes though although I heard the American The Ring is good. Pulse was the best of the bunch.

    Also here's all of my rankings and ratings from three months of watching horror flicks. I saw most of them in October: Horrorfest 2020

    The American Ring is the only good remake. It's quite good. The rest are trash.

    Oh its not that I love it, I prefer the original, but I think its effective in what its trying to do. The other remakes are down right terrible.
