I'm also curious. The trailer looks intense, but the Netflix user reviews (not a great barometer) tore it apart. Apparently, the presentation (audio and video) and shaky cam leave much to be desired, and it just kinda ends (to be continued...), but it's a small time investment (70+ min).

I heard it was shit, way back. Apparently the zombie make-up is just smearing a bunch of blood on the people's faces.

The SICKHOUSE?
FREAKSHOW or SIDE SHO?
Anyone see these? Worth checking out?

Avoid Side Sho like the plague. It's horribly bad, And not in the "So bad it's good" kind of way.

Good to hear about Machine Girl. I saw some photos in Fangoria a while back and became interested. The DVD tempts me everytime I go to Hastings.

Rogue. Yes or no?

Yeah, MACHINE GIRL's worth a look. Pretty pervasive gore, scenery-chewing, etc.

I've been waiting for ROGUE (love the subgenre), so it's going on my list regardless.
post #59 of 8684
It's not out yet, but Tokyo Gore Police is directed by the guy who did the effects for Machine Girl. It looks to be more of the same ridiculous fun.

Check out the trailer here

FEARnet being available OnDemand now*, I watched a movie called Deathwatch recently. It was basically a supernatural take on Carpenter's The Thing, except it takes place during World War I and an abandoned German trench. But I thought it was pretty good, if anything I would have liked to have seen more of Andy Serkis' batshit psycho soldier character. There wasn't enough of him, and big spikey club.

*Though all their movies seem to be presented in full screen only, so fuck you FEARnet.

Drew Maxwell's GUARDIANS or CARNIVOROUS? Can anyone weigh in? Worth tracking down (only GUARDIANS is on Netflix so far)?

In a fit of insomnia I watched Squirm on TV last night. I was shocked at how much I liked it. It's about killer worms attack a red neck town, so I suppose my expectations were low, but it was really well made for a '70s B-flick, and the acting was much more natural that expected. The giant writhing masses of worms towards the end were pretty obviously not real worms, but the director did a good job of intersplicing ECUs of real worms, and he made them 'scream', which was pretty disturbing.

ETA: I just realized the director was Jeff Lieberman, the guy behind Blue Sunshine and Just Before Dawn.

Better than most alligator/croc movies but not as good as ALLIGATOR. The same way no shark movie can ever touch JAWS, nothing can touch ALLIGATOR.

Lake Placid was close, if only for the great sexual tension between Oliver Platt and Brendan Gleeson.

Why does everyone hate Hannibal Rising?

I haven't seen it. Just wondering.

It's just utterly pointless. It commits exactly the same crime as Zombie's HALLOWEEN by trying to offer an explanation for a great movie monster's motivation. This is quickly becoming the cardinal sin of modern horror movies.

Not actually a Troma movie, bought by Troma. It's a charming film because it's so homemade, but it really drags.

I just watched Visiting Hours. It's very well made, and Ironside is awsome, but it's really a psychological thriller, not a horror film or slasher, so I was lefts a little disappointed.

well, I'm seeing positive reviews around the web, and the trailer is promising. it's enough for me to put it on my netflix. if I get around to it soon I'll post about it here.

how is the directors' previous effort, Broken? it also seems to have been pretty well received.

I liked it. I would have liked it more if Jennifer Ellison had removed her top, but there's some good horror/comedy moments to make up for it.

Gee. Thanks for stopping by CC Devin.

Now don't you have some sort of Men's fashion to complain about, or maybe an article detailing your continued Nerd self-loathing to work on?

Avoid Triloquist. Not even fans of Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys will enjoy that bastard version of Dead Silence.

What about Joy Ride 2? Watchable?

I never saw the first one, but based on the description they sound like the same movie. Reeker 2 was pretty well made, and had a few decent scares, but my friend and I figured out the entire plot to the letter within ten minutes, which has to be a record for me because I usually suck at that kind of thing.

REEKER is basically a group of people stranded at a truck stop or something being hunted by a smelly demon-thing. There was a twist that I won't ruin.

I am a sucker for creature features, so anything that's not just some dude cutting people gets points with me. To be a horror fan is to live with diminished expectations.

I recently saw the extended cut of DUST DEVIL and quite enjoyed its flawed ambition. I'd recommend it, just don't expect to be scared. I also kind of liked HELLO MARY LOU: PROM NIGHT 2 for being a shameless knockoff of the Nightmare franchise. Mileage may vary.

Is the twist that (possible Reeker 2 twist spoiler, but I think they're the same twist)they're all dead? Because that would explain why the Reeker 2 twist was so telegraphed. Maybe it wasn't supposed to be a twist. Seriously swap out truck stop for diner/hotel and you've got part 2.

The Last House in the Woods is awful though.

Yep, same twist. Sounds like they figured you'd seen part one.

Saw JACK BROOKS MONSTER SLAYER last night. Gotta say I enjoyed it for what it was. I was surprised how good it looked for such a low budget. The lead guy is like the Canadian Ryan Reynolds, or rather the Even More Canadian Ryan Reynolds. The creature effects are old school rubber monsters, which I like. Devin's review of it pretty much nails it, it's kind of repetitive until the third act. You get a bunch of scenes which serve the same purpose, and even a flashback story that more or less tells you what you already know. Robert Englund turns in a fun slapsticky performance, and the movie has a good-natured vibe that wins you over. The third act is great. Worth a rental.

I dunno, some stuff I've read around the net gave me the impression the buzz was at least somewhat good. I guess not.

I know there's been positive response The Substitute though, so what about that?
