So...what exactly are we supposed to be posting?

@TheBatman586:
Your thoughts on these vids and on the horror industry
#4 Posted by Caligula (12417 posts) - - Show Bio

videos are kinda neat. very amateur, very raw. but i see the potential there.
 
If this is going to be comicvine's offical Horror Discussion thread then I welcome it. I love to talk about all things Horror.
 
I'm a huge fan of the 70's Exploitation and Shock Cinema (like Cannibal Holocaust, Caligula, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Last House on the Left and such.), I am also really into the 80's Slasher and Trash Cinema (like Friday the 13th and Street Trash respectively).

Gore can be Scary. if in the right hands. (i.e. Lucio Fulci and Sean S.Cunningham).
 
I like both sides of the Horror Spectrum, really suspenseful stuff, as well as the really violent stuff.

My thing is that most of the slasher one new friday the 13th one for instance have absolutely no plot at all just a lot of killing which doesnt interest me i dont mind gore but it has to have some sort of story to keep me interested and it help when i actually get scared which i can tell you takes some doing

lol. i actually liked the new Friday the 13th film and all of the SAW movies. But I like smart Horror flicks too. I think both types have their place in the horror community.

I'm more of a fan of psychological horror, rather than plain old blood-and-guts. I like it when, at the end of the movie, most of what happens is left open-ended, and the monster/entity isn't really shown, only vaguely defined. 
Movies like The Blair Witch Project or The Fourth Kind are good examples of this.

I couldn't stand this movie. Went to the theater to see it too. Was severely disappointed. Best part imo was when the one dude mention how he kicked the map into the water, and did his little animation to show it.

you probably wouldn't like Pig Hunt, it is extremely violent and Gory. but it's a Dark Comedy done very well with a great soundtrack by Les Claypool. 
 
But I think you'd like Ponty Pool and Trick r' Treat alot based on your comments.

Splice to me was kinda like an Aesops fable (Had a moral) 
 
Never mess with genetics and make a human whatever hybrid because it will grow up to be really horny and when you dont give it some it will kill you

Ponty Pool takes place over the course of one night in one location, that location being a Radio Station. Where it's a Talk Radio Show, and the host is talking with residents of the town that seem to be under the attack of some kind of creatures or zombies. but you don't see much until the very end. most of it is built on suspense of listening to these frightened callers. very Orsen Wells-ish.
 
and Trick R' Treat is film about several different people's interlocking stories on a halloween night.

hell yeah. that movie was totally worth the wait. the Trailer came out way back when 300 was in theatres it was one of the Trailers. It was supposed to go to theatres, but never did. People who saw the trailer waited for years until it was finally released on DVD just last year in 2010.

yeah that's like the second story. they all connect if you watch all the way through, The main characters interact at some point in the night, it's like 9 degrees of Kevin Bacon only with Horror Protagonists/Antagonists.

that would be TCM4 or more commonly known as TCM: Next Generation. Matthew Mcconaughey was also in it.
 
Personally of all of the Texas sequels my favorite is 2. with Bill Moseley (Devil's Rejects) as Chop Top.
