BG: I just saw High Tension actually, better than Saw but I wasn't too impressed. The plot was good but the gore just kind of looked fake to me!

CoHace: The first Saw movie blew my mind, but I was also 17 when it came out. Portland is a great city, if you ignore the crusty granolas riding their bikes wearing carpri pants.

LDB: I think the cheesy gore tipped the hand on the production value but it was a great story line. What others would you recommend? I'm a horror junkie and my netflix queue just ran down to the very bottom of the barrel.

Watch "Inside", but only if you don't have a pregnant wife or girlfriend. It's French as well so when looking try À l'intérieur. It's not torture porn if it's French! ;)

I might watch "The Collector" tonight, but it's from the writers of a few of the Saw movies so...not expecting much.

If you like zombie movies watch "Dead Snow". Norwegian Nazi Zombies, amazing.

Will do LDB. Damned glad you showed up here.

Not sure if this is on topic, but what's so 'horror' about the Exorcist? I got a comedy/satire vibe from it all along. *cough* JESUS LOVES YOU!! :P

Dude, at the time that movie was released, people were passing out, crying, and if I remember correctly a few people actually died from heart attacks in the theater. There were Christian protesters outside of every theater that showed it. Carrie, The Exorcist and The Omen changed the horror movie scene by epic proportions.

Yeah, even the 'rawr we r old skool cinemagoers and we watched teh maavie before j00 were baarn, nigga' people here have told me the exact same things.

I find Omen more scarier. Not as a 'horror' movie, but as a shock kind of movie. Like, you're sippin' your sprite (say no to beer, kids!) and smoking a cigarette as the boring dialogue shit goes on and BOOM! HEY LOOK THE NANNY HUNG HERSELF NOW THAT IS FUCKING COOL and you drop your ciggie on the floor and are too much in shock to remember the 3 second rule.... The Exorcist only made me go like "HAHAHAHAHAHAHHA NOW THAT IS SOME FUNNY SHIT RIGHT THAR"

I saw Saw for the first time last night. I really want to know why the cops didn't shoot JigSaw when they burst into his lair and he had that guy fastened to the chair with his head in between the two drills. When the Asian cop was trying to free the guy, JigSaw talks shit and starts to walk away from Danny Glover. Wouldn't any sane individual, who had seen the torture JigSaw put his victims through either a) know he is a genius and not to be trusted or b) enjoy blowing his kneecaps out? The only thing I can think of is they were trying to portray Danny Glover as a sadistic cop who respected JigSaw's "justice"?!?!?!

Smoking in movie theaters... Ah the good old days.

Watched "Trick R Treat" and "Pandorum":

T-R-T: Horrible...another case of good previews
Pandorum: movie worked for me but nothing great..."Ghosts of Mars" meets "Event Horizon". No need for any twist ending here...but they did it anyway.

The Omen is the standout of the list above IMO. Love the scene when that priest gets impaled. Speaking of Linda Blair (Exorcist), anyone ever seen "Hell Night"? Nothing spectacular, it just stuck with me from when I was a kid.

Glad you enjoyed it BG, I'm searching for more films like it as we speak.

Bruno, congrats on your first SAW experience. Only like 12 more to watch before you're caught up.

I can definitely recommend Wolf Creek, the Aussie movie mentioned way back on the first page of this post. Not gory in the sense of Saw or Hostel, but very fucking disturbing. A lot of tension, and has one of the best psycho killers you'll ever have the misfortune to meet. He'll make you think twice about going Outback.

LivingDeadbeat- The funny thing is I have seen Saw's 2-5, but had never seen the original. It was okay, but I prefer the movie Seven.

I am more of a fun of 70's and 80's horror, like Basket Case, Superstition, I Spit On Your Grave, Necromantic, Brain Damage, Cannibal Holocaust, Re-animator, Chopping Mall, etc
