    No trust me, 'Martyrs' isn't just some horror-violence film. It's so much more than that..

    Seriously, watch it this weekend @elevenism

    @elevenism everything NYRexall is saying about Martyrs is true it is experience like no other, and this comes from a jaded horror movie fanatic.

    All it makes me feel is bad for the people to whom the violence is being done.
    Same here, I hate torture porn.

    This is not torture porn. This is not gratuitous. And seriously, if you can go beyond the violent parts, this will blow your fucking mind. I think it's in fact right up your alley, man.

    So...A Serbian Film. Torture porn, or dark art of the most deviant order?

    That's a debate for those who have seen it!

    I've had I described to me and decided it wasn't for me. Contrary to Martyrs, I don't see the point. Martyrs has a point, I failed to understand A Serbian Film's point, or to consider its point important enough for me to suffer through more than an hour's worth of human atrocity.

    Irreversible and Martyrs are fucking brutal, but their violence has a very clear purpose. I didn't want to go through a movie which would put me through this just for the heck of showing me it could. That's how I perceived it anyway.

    ASF is definitely atrocity to the extreme, but it's important to remember that the kind of shit that happens in that movie does in fact go on in the real world.

    Irreversible is fucking hard to watch. It's like ASF, where you only need to see it once. It stays with you forever after that. I can't imagine what that must have been like, filming that horrible scene..

    Have you ever seen the French film Inside? That's another one that's hard to watch, but I felt had a point to what was going on. Again, you only need to see it once though..

    Yeah. That's the Not Fun part

    That's why I'm not a fan of torture, rape, actual suffering and anguish. That's not why I watch horror. I'm here to see a guy have his hands swallowed and chewed by a corpse's belly while said corpse's head goes its own way on its brand new spider legs. I'm here to see an impossible creature bred inside a poor guy's guts haunt the spaceship and hunt down the six remaining passengers. I'm here for the mad spirits infecting a bunch of friends in a remote cabin in the woods.

    Rape, torture, terror, anguish... Not so much. @elevenism and I are more like fantasy fans, Twilight Zone style. We want the alien and the unknown and the weird. We're not here to face how atrocious the real world can actually be.

    Which makes movies like Martyrs and Irreversible all the more peculiar to me : they were worth it. They were everything I hate, and I don't regret having watched them for a second.

    It's out. I'm watching it right now. Just paused on the third story for a food/bathroom/Internet break.

    Really liked the first story, but didn't care for the second one (the St Vincent one. Mild spoiler: Spoiler: It's not really a horror tale, more of an awkwardly-handled black comedy that isn't quite funny. The music and visuals are nice, but it's a shame about the writing.). Liking the third one right now, as well.

    EDIT: Finished it. Yeah, the Annie Clark one is the weakest story. It's a great anthology, though.

    Unfortunately, it's been cancelled. Looks like we're not gonna see the next chapter anytime soon.
    It makes you wonder what some of these people are thinking. Horror releases are doing good on the box-office. New Line knows the franchise has a big fan base.

    This sucks.

    The script leaked. I haven't read it personally, but the summary on Bloody Disgusting is a bit messy.

    Also, the script for Halloween Returns leaked as well, albeit apparently it did so in mid-2016. I'm reading it now and it's weird but would have made a decent movie.

    A CURE FOR WELLNESS. So I'm tired and not sure where else to post this. Didn't see a thread, but I'm not sure if it warrants one...? When I say that, I mean in the sense that I'm really confused about how I feel about the movie, but I can sum it up in three points -

    1. Cinematography, casting, and sound design were stellar. They NAILED the creepy, unsettling vibe.
    2. HOLY shit, did some kind of identity crisis happen around 2/3 into this story or what.
    3. Every single review on Rotten Tomatoes is pretty accurate. It seems like the biggest problem people have with it is the same as mine - I loved where it could have been going, and then after a point I thought "wow, that's a solid little mysterious ending...wait...." AND IT WENT ON FOR LIKE ANOTHER HALF HOUR, for no truly necessary reason. But hey, it was a discomforting flick, maybe that was the point, idk.

    Irreversible spoilers:

    Spoiler: Are you referring to the fire extinguisher bashing or the rape scene? Both of those scenes have stuck with me over the years, and I remember the fire extinguisher scene being one of the most brutal beating deaths I had seen in a movie at the point. Let's zoom in on the head (from profile) and watch a metal object collapse a face.

    Am I remembering that correctly? I only watched it once, and it was a rental from Blockbuster video.

    Corrected! Thanks for the heads up, I'd typed all that once and this fucking iOS fucked up and lost the page, so I must've left it out when I typed it again. But it's A Cure For Wellness!

    Was referring to Spoiler: the rape scene, which is one of the most disturbing scenes in a movie I've ever seen. But yea, Spoiler: the fire extinguisher head-bash is pretty unsettling, as well..

    Irreversible is a truly fucked-up film that you can only see once. I'm kind of glad I own the DVD as it was my gateway to Gaspar Noe as I think Enter the Void is his crowning achievement. Still, Irreversible is an absolutely extreme film which is pretty much what Noe is known to do as I also think his earlier films like Carne and I Stand Alone were just as extreme as well as some of his shorts.

    @elevenism There has been some new releases in February that may interest you.

    I had the chance to watch Don't Knock Twice and Havenhurst this weekend. First one is about an urban legend of a demonic witch, who haunts a girl. The movie never really hits a good pace but it still had some good moments and scare.
    Havenhurst is some people who mysteriously disappear in this gothic apparent building.

    I also got Don't Hang Up and The Monster but I haven't watch those yet.

    I watched XX and really didn't care much for it. The Box was cool but The Birthday Party failed to keep me interested. Movie redeemed itself with Don't Fall. Overall, it was not as good as Southbound in my opinion.

    Other titles I've seen lately include Late Phases and From The Dark. I would recommend the latter only.

    So @Deepvoid are you only suggesting From the Dark out of ALL the titles you listed, or just the last two?

    Just watched it. I agree, it wasn't really good. Too bad because the monster was actually cool looking. The setting of the movie and its execution was just bad.

    Get Out is a fantastic, fun, hilarious, intelligent, and socially relevant film and is one of the best horror films I've seen in a very long time. I'm already looking forward to seeing it again, and buying it whenever it's on blu-ray. I highly recommend catching it in theaters. The crowd I was with made this into one of the best audience experiences I've had with a movie as well. Everyone was engaged and reacted perfectly (laughed, cried out, some comments here and there more so out of immersion rather than heckling) and applause when the end credits began. I look forward to more horror films by Jordan Peele.

    Pretty sure that movie and A Serbian Film are the benchmarks for desensitizing oneself to things like violence, depravity, etc.

    I just watched the Belko Experiment. I really enjoyed it. It's was pretty smart, it's a great setup and a very good watch. Highly recommended.

    That said, it never got REALLY tense, it never got into that cat-and-mouse, coworkers hunting each other territory I expected. It stayed pretty light on tension the whole time. But it was gory and a fun ride.
