Its never too late Glinda. Its never too late. Check it out, I promise youll at least be entertained...

It seems there are so many movies to get through first though right? Can you just jump in or do you need to watch the others?

TheChanges23
TheChanges23 at 05:21 AM Oct 24

Well there's 5 actually because its basically everyones origin stories along with introducing Fury, Widow, and Hawkeye.

Incredible Hulk
Iron Man
Iron Man 2
Thor
Captain America First Avenger

But to answer your question, I suppose Avengers could be watched without viewing the other films but it does kind of lose a little bit of impact. But its up to you. I say go for it, and if you like the film, you can consider the others to be prequels. Lol

HORROR query of the day - What's a film that you adore yet everyone else loathes? And of course the opposite, a film you detest yet everyone else loves?

This is Spinal Tap is a movie I've watched it twice in my life and I just can't get into it. It's not a movie I hate but it's really disappointed me especially since I'm a fan of all involved. Perhaps it's an age thing, I don't know. It's a well made movie and I get what it's trying to do but it's a tough movie to get through and I just don't think it's that funny.

For a movie that I like but others don't, I'll go with the Friday the 13th remake as well. Honestly, I think it's a way better movie than the original in terms of pacing, characters, and thrills. Plus, it's a lot of fun.

I fear I may have made the wrong call of F13, seems people actually do like it.

Alright let's try to other way round, I thought The Woman In Black from a couple years ago was one of the dullest, most tedious and utterly predictable films I've ever seen.

^ Yep, I thought Woman in Black was ridiculously plodding, too.

I'm starting to get excited about checking out the SAW re-release for Halloween. I haven't been to a re-release of a horror film since the extended cut of THE EXORCIST came out over a decade ago. This could be an awesome treat or a waste if money. Can't decide.

Saw is a great franchise, for me it brought something to horror that no other film has, the psychology in the villain, the choosing, the torture of course is nothing new, but the planning, the reason and specially the option to get out was a great concept that simply blowed my mind. It is not for everybody and granted, I have not seen all because is absolutely terrifying but the concept as a whole is genius.

HORROR query of the day - What do you do (or don't do) in real life thanks to what you've seen in horror films?
Glinda
Glinda at 04:50 AM Oct 21

Number one: never scream or make any noise.

Lots of things but mainly I always lock my bedroom door when I'm sleeping at night, I never ever park in parking garages that aren't busy - so never at night (if I'm with someone else it's okay). If I get suspicious of anything at all I start water boiling on the stove to throw at the killer. Been doing that since high school. Only if I'm really worried there's someone out there though.

1. Always Look my Bedroom: Too many Horror Movies.
2. Never go and stay alone in a Cabin In the Woods: I Spit On Your Grave, pun intended.
3. Don't do "you know what" in a parked car on the woods: Urban Legends and too many other horror movies.
4. Always checking the back seat in a car whenever I enter first.

1. Always check the gas tank in my car
2. Always check the batteries on my phone
3. Always have a lighter and a small but deadly knife in my pocket
4. Always inform family or friends when I'm leaving for an estranged place
5. Never invoke demons

HORROR query of the day - What's the most unintentionally terrifying non-horror film you've ever seen?
Righteous_faustus
Righteous_faustus at 10:56 PM Oct 19

E.T. Some of that music is actually pretty terrifying. I mean primarily in the beginning that score when E.T. Walks through the Forrest is scary. His scream also terrifies me. I don't find it to be a "family" movie

HTX0811
HTX0811 at 02:08 AM Oct 20

Gone Girl or Gravity. They're not really horror movies but there's a sense of dread and terror with the score and sound in each that made them a really scary experience. Seeing them in a theater really had a factor in that too.

While I don't consider it a full-fledged masterpiece (That title in this series belongs to the 2nd installment) ALIEN manages to still craft a meticulously vast, sleek and grimy experience that can't be denied, the first half sets up the story and scope of this world wonderfully and keeps the drama and tension on a slow burn until the third act which is tight, taut, terrifying, dark, creepy, and staggeringly suspenseful. This is still masterful work by everyone involved and I'm glad to be reminded of that whenever I watch this film.

HORROR query of the day - Since, the Academy is scared of the genre, What horror film do you believe deserved an Oscar, or at least a nod?
grelber37
grelber37 at 09:27 AM Oct 19

Piranhafeast offers a great list. Definitely, I agree that Spinell and Karloff gave superlative performances. Although, there's no freakin' way that Maniac was getting any Oscars. LOL.

Derek237 at 03:49 PM Oct 19

I'd consider Black Swan a horror film so that's probably the closest thing we've seen in the genre get a nomination for Best Picture.

But here's a nod wishlist on the top of my head:

-Donald Pleasance should have gotten a nod for Halloween for Best Supporting Actor
-Jeff Goldblum for The Fly
-Mia Farrow for Rosemary's Baby (for the longest time I assumed she was nominated...she wasn't)
-Robert Shaw for Jaws
-Gregory Peck for The Omen
-Fuck it Omen for Best Picture, actually.
-Rosemary's Baby for Best Picture
-Let the Right One In Best Foreign Language Film
-Psycho for Best Picture
-The Shining for all the awards. ALL THE AWARDS.

Do you mean, for Best Picture or just...any kind of award category?

If the latter, plenty.

HORROR query of the day - What cliches in the genre are you completely fed up with and wish would just die out completely? and if applicable, which would you like to see more of?

Cell phone always being dead, or not being able to get any service.

No cliche should completely die. Every literary convention has its place if used with skill at the appropriate time.

However, do you know what really grinds my gears? Stupid patrolmen in horror flicks. Police detectives get to be consistently smart. Often, they get to be Porfiry Petrovich (Crime and Punishment) or Sherlock Holmes (Hound of the Baskervilles). However, too many movie cops are dumb-asses in horror, unlike their streetwise counterparts in action, drama, and comedy (Police Academy very excepted). Real-life patrolmen, troopers, and other uniformed police have a great range of intelligence. In fact, some of them are quite astute and analytical. Not every horrorshow cop needs to be a dumb-ass just to progress the plot.

A few established conventions do not bother me much. One is especially valuable: the unkillabe killer. I want Godzilla, Jason, Dracula, and everybody to possibly return in the next movie. I do not necessarily want a boogeyman or a devil vanquished and killed and destroyed for all time. Why not? Well, what purpose do ghost stories serve? They are tales of warning. Maybe, we viewers and listeners need to know that evil is never quite dead during our lifetimes. Troubles will always return, and we must always remember to be alert. Ghost stories are also morality tales. They need to remind us of the everlasting good and evil within and without.
