    Basically, I'm going to post horror flicks and short reviews(as well as links to my longer reviews).

    If you have any requests on movies I should review, post them or PM them.
    I'll post two,three, or four at a time.

    MOVIES TO WATCH

    Black Sunday: The Mask of Satan- Mario Bava's debut is incredibly creepy and atmospheric. The fact it was made in 1960 works for it, and against it. If you are into horror films, CHECK THIS OUT. [Zero-Raws] Macross FRONTIER 14 (DivX Q3 960x540).avi

    3.5/4 stars

    Cloverfield- The hand held camera thing has never been a favorite of mine. However, that doesn't change the fact that Cloverfield is a surprisingly well-written and intense film. However, it wont work for everyone. [Zero-Raws] Macross FRONTIER 14 (DivX Q3 960x540).avi

    3/4

    I am Legend- This is another Will Smith movie. Like the others, it had alot of potential and is very entertaining. However, it is mostly ruined by the crappy CGI. [Zero-Raws] Macross FRONTIER 14 (DivX Q3 960x540).avi

    2.5/4

    MOVIES I WOULDN'T REALLY RECCOMEND

    The Omega Man- "I am Legend" was somewhat of a remake of this, which was a remake of a Vincent Price movie, which was based on a novel. Charlton Heston carries the film admirably, but its so corny and outdated that I dont think todays audiences will appreciated it. [Zero-Raws] Macross FRONTIER 14 (DivX Q3 960x540).avi

    2/4 stars

    Haha, I totally agree with Omega Man. Even when I consider the time it was made in, its still dreadful. :rotfl

    MOVIES TO WATCH

    House of Clocks: Lucio Fulci makes a surprisingly intelligent film with an awesome twist. The cinematography is strong, but the film kind of looks cheap and the editing sucks. Ronaldo agreeing that he is a slave.

    3/4

    MOVIES I WOULDNT REALLY RECCOMEND

    Godzilla: Final Wars- The final(?) entry in the Godzilla franchise is somewhat of an insult. The monster scenes are kind of cool, but the idiotic human plot ruins it. It's not a total waste of time, but I didn't like it. Ronaldo agreeing that he is a slave.

    2/4 stars


    MOVIES I WOULD KIND OF RECCOMEND

    The Happening
    : M. Night Shyamalan doesn't make a great film, but its still very entertaining. Ronaldo agreeing that he is a slave.

    2.5/4

    MOVIES TO AVOID

    Lake Placid 2: It tries to be quirky, but just comes across as stupid. The croc looks painfully CGI. Ronaldo agreeing that he is a slave.

    1.5/4

    MOVIES TO WATCH

    The Burning- This "Friday the 13th" clone ripped off "Bay of Blood" and "Friday the 13th part 2"(or that may have rippled off this). Regardless, it's a cool gory, cool, stylish slasher film that I would reccomend for fans of the slasher genre. [Chihiro]ToLOVERu​_-​_Trouble​_15​_[h264]​_[6BDB8764].mkv

    3/4

    Evil Aliens- This comedy, gorefest is a sidesplitter(maybe even literally!). It's more over the top than "Shawn of the Dead", but it still a delight to watch. [Chihiro]ToLOVERu​_-​_Trouble​_15​_[h264]​_[6BDB8764].mkv

    3/4

    Suspiria: Dario Argento was heavily inspired by Mario Bava when making this film. Its high on suspence, wonderful use of colors, and a beautiful horror film that even succeeds on a gore level. Don't expect much plot, however.
    [Chihiro]ToLOVERu​_-​_Trouble​_15​_[h264]​_[6BDB8764].mkv

    3.5/4

    MOVIES I WOULDN'T REALLY RECCOMEND

    Burial Ground: Nights of Terror: This is a bad Italian zombie flick that somehow turns its negatives into positives. It's sleezy fun, but keep in mind its not a very good movie. It appears to have ripped off Fulci's "Zombie". [Chihiro]ToLOVERu​_-​_Trouble​_15​_[h264]​_[6BDB8764].mkv

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers(1978) - As corny as you might think it is, its also a very terrifying film. [Zero-Raws] Soul Eater 15 Raw (1280x720 x264).mp4

    4/4

    Se7en- Brilliantly written/directed/acted with an ending that would unnerve you like crazy. [Zero-Raws] Soul Eater 15 Raw (1280x720 x264).mp4

    4/4


    MOVIES I WOULD KIND OF RECOMMEND

    Varan the Unbelievable: The special effects are pretty cool, but it just feels like a bland Godzilla clone. [Zero-Raws] Soul Eater 15 Raw (1280x720 x264).mp4

    2.5/4

    lol, at least I only gave it a 2/4 stars, which isn't all bad.

    MOVIES I WOULDNT REALLY RECOMMEND

    Baron Blood- Two stupid teens speak forbidden incantations and accidently unleash an undead, murderous baron on the world. Possibly inspired all those 80's demon flicks("Night of the Demons" and "Spookies" come to mind), but this one personally bored me. Mario Bava does do pretty good with the atmosphere, but the annoying characters and dull script bring him down. Link removed

    2/4

    MOVIES I WOULD KIND OF RECOMMEND

    Four Flies on Grey Velvet- A band member accidently murders someone, and was seen and photographed by a serial killer. While this is a cool inverse on Dario Argento's usual plots(which are usually: someone witnesses a murder and tries to solve the case before the murderer gets them), the rest of the script is painfully dull. Luckily, DARIO ARGENTO TO THE RESCUE. The man goes all out on style and even brings out some suspence. He makes the best of it. Link removed

    2.5/4

    MOVIES TO WATCH

    Day of the Dead(1985) - A bunch of scientists and army dudes cope with living underground as zombies loom on the outside. Romero's least popular of his old trilogy is actually pretty good. It's more moody and character driven, while being sort of slow and has some annoying characters. The bits with bub the zombie are classic. A pretty good zombie flick, but nowhere near its predecessor, "Dawn of Dead". Link removed

    3/4

    Gates of Hell- Also known as "City of the Living Dead", various people try to find one of the 7 gates of hell before it opens and the dead walk the earth. Lucio Fulci manages to create a creepy, moody, atmospheric, gory, epic film that is quite haunting. It's my personal favorite of his. Don't expect it to make sense, however. Avoid the "in name" sequel. Link removed

    3.5/4

    But it had Don Frye in it. Maybe you don't understand the magnitude of the mustache he sports. It easily puts any movie he is in to a 5/4 rating. :quite

    MOVIES I WOULDN'T REALLY RECCOMEND

    Frankenstein meets the Space Monster- Aliens start stealing earth women for breeding purposes, but they must fight an android. This movie is so bad, you stop judging it as a movie and just have a fun time laughing at it. Fun stuff. [HorribleRaws]​_Slayers​_Revolution​_-​_3​_(480x270).​wmv

    2/4

    Five Dolls for an August Moon- This Mario Bava murder mystery simply was bland and forgettable. Not bad, but Mediocre in every sense of the word. A bunch of people are trapped on a remote island with a murderer. [HorribleRaws]​_Slayers​_Revolution​_-​_3​_(480x270).​wmv

    2/4

    MOVIES TO WATCH

    Bride of Frankenstein- The Monster and a mysterious doctor try to convince Frankenstein to make another monster. This classic mainly works as a drama, not so much a horror. Despite this there are a few chilling scenes, and many touching scenes. It's a tragedy, and it effected me. Sort of outdated, however. [HorribleRaws]​_Slayers​_Revolution​_-​_3​_(480x270).​wmv

    MOVIES TO WATCH

    Planet of the Vampires(1965)- Astronauts land on a planet that has vampire-like inhabitants. Mario Bava's elaborate set pieces and wonderful atmosphere make the film worth watching. It's stunningly beautiful and chilling. Unfortunately, the bland characters keep it from being a classic. [Chihiro]_Sekirei_03_[XviD][82928F92].avi.torrent

    3/4

    MOVIES I WOULDNT REALLY RECCOMEND.

    Destory All Monsters(1968)- Godzilla and all the monsters are taken over by aliens who are threatening the earth. Alot of fans like this film, but I personally thought the monsters stayed in the background a bit too much and the plot was simply a cheezy, cliche sci-fi opus. Cool finale, however. Loosely remade into "Godzilla: Final Wars". [Chihiro]_Sekirei_03_[XviD][82928F92].avi.torrent

    2/4

    Alien Vs Predator: Requiem(2007) - A predator hunts down aliens and a predalien in some rural city. Credible directing, good special effects, nice gore and some cool ideas are brought down by a crappy script, dull human characters, and questionable acting. Much more uneven than its predecessor, "AVP", but arguably more satisfying. [Chihiro]_Sekirei_03_[XviD][82928F92].avi.torrent

    2/4

    The House on the Edge of the Park(1980) - Ruggero Deodato(of the "Cannibal Holocaust" fame) brings us another exploitation film full of violence and rape about two sexual deviants crashing a party. It's a decent film, but an obvious ripoff of "Last House on the Left" and has a twist that is both cool and incomprehensible. Watch at your own risk. [Chihiro]_Sekirei_03_[XviD][82928F92].avi.torrent

    Zodiac(2007) - The POV's of the detectives and reporters as the Zodiac killer strikes. Well-done movie simply suffers from being overlong, although it goes by quickly.
    Link removed

    3/4

    MOVIES I WOULDNT REALLY RECCOMEND

    Nightbreed(1990) - A guy gets killed by a serial killer, turns into some demon thing, and seeks revenge. Clive Barker is a very imaginative director(he did Hellraiser), and the beauty and style are the only good things found here. The dialogue and acting are awful.
    Link removed

    2/4

    Howling 5: The Rebirth(1989)- A group of people are stalked by a werewolf in a Castle. Awesome setting, pounding score, well-written characters and decent buildup are all present, so what went wrong? Well, you never get much of a look at the werewolf and the kills are all bland. I hear this is one of the better sequels, which is pretty sad...Link removed

    2/4

    MOVIES YOU MUST AVOID

    Gates of Hell II: Dead Awakening(1988)- Some dudes resurrect some demon to kill some guardian chick...This in-name sequel to Fulci's cult classic is one of the worst things ever made. The makeup effects might be okay, but you can't see them. It's too dark! The director tries to go for some campy noir crap, and it all fails. The script is also crap, but I can forgive that. When you can't see anything that's going on, it simply becomes unforgivable. There isn't even any gore....why do a Fulci homage/sequel if there isn't any gore!? Link removed

    Alligator(1980) - This Jaws clone about a giant alligator that attacks people in the sewers is actually very frightening and witty. Hell, even the alligator looks good. [chibi] Shugo Chara! - 39 [704x396][h264][A2FF627B].mkv

    3.5/4

    The Abandoned(2006) - A woman inherits a haunted house. A creepy haunted house movie that sort of is dragged down by lame exposition and a confusing story. [chibi] Shugo Chara! - 39 [704x396][h264][A2FF627B].mkv

    3/4

    Abominable(2006) - A crippled man witnesses his neighbors being killed by a bigfoot in the woods. This wierd "Rear Window" adaption may be a Sci-Fi exclusive feature, but its actually very good. The monster is awesome and its just creepy. [chibi] Shugo Chara! - 39 [704x396][h264][A2FF627B].mkv

    3/4

    MOVIES TO AVOID

    Aenigma(1987)- A loser is severly injured in her crappy highschool and uses her supernatural powers to get revenge. Director Lucio Fulci seems to have lifted from "Carrie", "Phenomena", and "Suspiria" here, except nothing really works. Fulci has done worse, but there is no reason to watch this bland and forgettable film.

    Wicked City(1987): This anime about two detectives who fight the supernatural is stylish, action packed and slick, but goes down the lines of tasteless and exploitive.
    [BakaWolf-m.3.3.w] Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu 01 (XviD) [B3CCC0BD].avi

    3/4

    Vertigo(1958): The movie is interesting, stunningly beautiful, and well-done but kind of slow. Alfred Hitchcock directs it and its about a man who is hired to watch the wife(Who may be crazy) of his friend. [BakaWolf-m.3.3.w] Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu 01 (XviD) [B3CCC0BD].avi

    3/4

    MOVIES I WOULDNT REALLY RECCOMEND

    The Wicker Man(2006) - A cop investigates a missing child case on a remote island owned by pagans. It's pretty stupid, but there is a certain amount of charm and energy that made it pretty enjoyable. [BakaWolf-m.3.3.w] Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu 01 (XviD) [B3CCC0BD].avi

    2.5/4

    MOVIES TO AVOID

    Watchers(1988)- Based on the novel by Dean Koontz, a boy befriends a super intelligent dog which is chased down by a murderous agent and some sort of monster. A worthwhile moments can't save this incredibly stupid film, and I'm not really sure how Cory Haim ever became popular. He sucks here! [BakaWolf-m.3.3.w] Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu 01 (XviD) [B3CCC0BD].avi

    Two Evil Eyes(1990)- Goerge Romero and Dario Argento direct two stories based on Edgar Allen Poe. Romero's film involves a married woman and her lover attempting to inherhit everything from her dying, bitter husband. It's chilling, freaky, and has a spectacular ending. It deserves a 3.5/4. Argento's flick about Harvey Keitel going insane after killing a black cat is full of style and suspence, but lacks the heart of the last flick. It deserves a 3/4. Here are lyrics

    3/4

    Them(2007) -This French film about a couple being harassed in their own house is simply a terrifying experience. In 2008, a similar film came out called "The Strangers". Here are lyrics

    4/4

    MOVIES I WOULD KIND OF RECCOMEND

    Trauma(1993) - Argento directs a flick about an unhealthy couple tracking down a serial killer. It has some style, some effective drama, some decent kills and some suspence, but its slow-paced and cheezy. Here are lyrics

    2.5/4

    Tenebre(1982)- Another Argento flick, about a writer trying to catch a killer who seems to be a big fan of the writers book. Awesome twists, some suspence and style, marred with a tacky score, stupid characters and a slow pace. Here are lyrics

    2.5/4

    The Beyond(1981)- This is considered by many to be Fulci's best films. While I kind of disagree, it's definately up there! It's sporadic nightmarish images will leave an impression, especially during the final shot. Appears to have been influenced by "Suspiria" as well as "Jigoku". It's about a woman who inherits an old hotel, which sits on one of the 7 gates of hell. [Chihiro]Ikkitousen​_-​_Great​_Guardians​_04[XviD][1FB50702].avi

    3.5/4

    The Bird with the Crystal Plummage(1970)- A man witnesses an attempted murder and is stalked for it. Dario Argento's first film is actually a very impressive giallo. Unfortunately, Argento reused alot of the themes for his superior "Deep Red", which sort of drowns this movie out. [Chihiro]Ikkitousen​_-​_Great​_Guardians​_04[XviD][1FB50702].avi

    3/4

    Dawn of the Dead(1978)- This zombie epic about four people trying to survive against zombies as well as a group of rogue bikers is simply epic. It's funny, sad, scary, intense, adventurous, interesting, and even has good drama. Arguably the best zombie film of all time. Was remade into a fun-but-stupid film of the same name. [Chihiro]Ikkitousen​_-​_Great​_Guardians​_04[XviD][1FB50702].avi

    MOVIES I WOULDN'T REALLY RECCOMEND

    Blood Surf(2000)- A bunch of surfers doing a documentary are hunted down by a giant crocodile. It's very cheezy and stupid, which both states the negative aspects of the film as well as the positive aspects. [Chihiro]Ikkitousen​_-​_Great​_Guardians​_04[XviD][1FB50702].avi

    Sweeny Todd: Demon Barber of Fleet Street(2007)- A musical about a barber who desires revenge on the judge who wrongfully put him away. Tim Burton delivers in terms of suspense and gothic atmosphere, and Johnny Depp owns as Todd. It's the musical aspect I'm not too sure about.. did RE5 get accidentally confirm for the Wii?

    The Strangers(2008) - A couple is attacked in their own home. The director definately makes a very creepy film(reminded me of the original "Halloween"). Unfortunately, the script is still full of cliches and dumb logic that it cant go down as a classic. did RE5 get accidentally confirm for the Wii?

    3/4

    MOVIES I WOULDN"T REALLY RECCOMEND

    The Stendhal Syndrome(1995) -This flick about a rapist/murderer stalking the cop who is tracking him down may have alot of style(as expected by Dario Argento), but it is also boring. did RE5 get accidentally confirm for the Wii?

    2/4

    Spookes(1987)- a bunch of teens are hunted down by spirits in an old mansion. Three unfinished movies were spliced into one, so everything seems all over the place. The acting is bad, the script is bad and the movie is bad.....just its just so fun! did RE5 get accidentally confirm for the Wii?.

    The Girl Who Knew Too Much(1963) : A tourist in Rome may have witnessed a murder and now the murderer is stalking her! The first giallo is easily one of the best all around. Mario Bava simply owns. [INP]One​_Piece​_363​_HD[B20DE254].mp4

    3.5/4

    Godzilla Vs Biollante(1989) - Godzilla takes on a giant plant. The convoluted plot involving humans will turn off some people to this movie. But what amazing special effects! Sadly, the film flopped and the movies went cheap on us again....[INP]One​_Piece​_363​_HD[B20DE254].mp4

    3.5/4

    MOVIES I WOULD KIND OF RECCOMEND

    Godzilla Raids Again(1955)
    Another Godzilla attacks Japan(Osaka this time), and another monster(Anguirus) seems to have taken interest in the city as well. Cool monster fights and decent special effects save a mostly forgettable and bland entry in the series. It was the first Godzilla sequel. [INP]One​_Piece​_363​_HD[B20DE254].mp4

    2.5/4

    Godzilla's Revenge(1969) - A boy who may be psychotic uses a machine to cause him to dream about monster island. I actually enjoy this wierd Godzilla flick for children, but its hard to like because of the overuse of stock footage. [INP]One​_Piece​_363​_HD[B20DE254].mp4

    Rear Window(1954) - A crippled man who has become adept at spying on the neighbors from his apartment may have witnessed a murder. It's a different kind of suspense, but effective nonetheless. Roaring Tides from Clannad.

    3.5/4 stars

    The House of Exorcism(1973) -When "Lisa and the Devil" flopped, the producer decided he'd redo that movie to make this, which is an Exorcist rip-off about a Priest trying to save a possessed girl. It's not bad, but it does feel like two seperate movies are going on at once, making it sort of a mess. Link removed

    2/4

    The Army of Darkness(1992) - Ash(From the "Evil Dead" movie) gets thrown back in time to the middle ages, where he must battle demons to get home. You'll either love it or hate it. It's cheesy and outdated, but witty and awesome. RAIHOU PLUSH PREORDER!!!

    3/4

    I thought Strangers was a piss-poor movie, really, and I have pretty low standards. I also couldn't bear watching Sweeny Todd, because I'm too damn manly.

    lol, poor Sweeny Todd. "The Strangers" isn't a good movie on paper, but I got to admire the director for at least going back to the old Halloween routes.

    Grindhouse(2007) -"Planet Terror" is a zombie film by Robert Rodriguez. It owns: It's funny, gory, intense and action packed. Easily a 3.5/4 star rating. "Death Proof" is slower, kind of annoying, but still pretty cool. A 2.5/4 star rating.

    The total result is....

    Kill Baby, Kill(1965) - A doctor goes into an old town where mysterious murders are taking place. Mario Bava combines gothic horror with colorful, hypnotic surrealism that clearly inspired Dario Argento(for "Suspiria"). It's great, but pretty slow moving. [/CENTER]

    I liked Planet Terror; it was just a cool movie that didn't take itself seriously. I never watched Death Proof because of all the bad ratings it got.

    As for Strangers, I don't know, it was predictable. I knew what was going to happen to the couple (not exactly, but knew their fate), saw the friend's visit thing coming a mile away, and I didn't find it scary at all--that's not the movie's fault, it's because I'm too damn manly.

    I did like some stuff, like how they left it open-ended and really kept the killers a mystery. I hated that the couple broke the rules of scary movies though. They should've stayed in the room.
