Yeah, I really understand that.When I was between 18 and my mid-twenties, I could have watched hours of splatter and gore, without getting bored, but these days, I prefer the horror of the mind.Not to say, that there haven´t always been prodigys like Cronenberg, who seemed to be able, to merge both of them, with seemingly no effort.Padwolf said:Welcome!

Ha, that's pretty funny to know. "Watch more Horror, it makes you better people." Tonight on CNN.Callate said:Welcome, Mr. Sagliani. I appreciate the breadth of media you've mentioned in your introduction, and I'll look forward to seeing your column.
A slight side note: I remember that a couple of decades ago a survey was done of which celebrities responded most pleasantly to requests for autographs and which ones were the most unpleasant. The meanest were comedians; I believe Rosanne Barr and Bill Cosby both ranked high on the list. But equally interesting was that two of the kindest were Vincent Price and Robert Englund (of Freddy Krueger fame.) Perhaps there's something in horror that is good for us. (Or at least, good for those with a hand in its creation.)
I had heard that he had suffered some nightmares of his own, but I hadn't heard of any more significant trauma. What had you heard?SilverStuddedSquirre said:Ha, that's pretty funny to know. "Watch more Horror, it makes you better people." Tonight on CNN.

Just watched it last night and it's earned a top spot on my horror list. I've seen reviews talk about how the ending has no "payoff", but I have to disagree. The themes the movie explores really resonate with me so that may be a reason I enjoyed the whole film, but I found the conclusion very satisfying and it fits the story. The only aspect I felt could've been handled better is certain "things" not being shown as much on camera as their horror worked best when in the shadows. I'm eager to see what other feature length films the director makes, and I suggest watching his short films if you enjoyed this.SKBPinkie said:For all the people here who like psychological horror - you should definitely check out The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh.
