honesly....also the thing

seriously....that movie is so old....but i feel like it will never outdate....because those animations they used just make the thing more gorry then stuff like cgi ever coud do.

 

also it still makes me think:

-what will happen if they ever get found ?

-is one of the 2 guys at the end the thing ?

-if they woud make a true sequel in wich one of the things that were burned and frozen gets transported to a investigation center in a big city and the thing escapes, how woud that go ?

-has the thing more weaknesses ?

-are there more ways to reconaise the thing from the regular human ?

 

realy the thing>the blob>godzilla....or anything else

There are comics that serve as a sequel to the movie and kinda explains some of your doubts, they are not on the same level that the movie though and his canonicity is debatable.

 

By the way, Childs was definetly a thing.

 

realy the thing>the blob>godzilla....or anything else

pls

 

The Thing can't absorb something as big and nasty as Godzilla and the blob eats anything it touches, don't think The Thing can absorb whatever Blob is made of.

The Thing can't absorb something as big and nasty as Godzilla and the blob eats anything it touches, don't think The Thing can absorb whatever Blob is made of.

 

remember.....the thing doesnt realy need to absorb full people to take them over.

the things cells atack other cells, infect them and change them into "thing" cells.

if the thing ever woud touch godzilla it woud first just attatch itself to it, probably going completely unnoticed and then just slowly take over godzillas body.

 

probably then godzilla woud drop down, dead....and within 5 minutes just be taken over by the thing....atleast thats how it seems to happen in the movie with that one guy.

about the blob...if anything, i give him a bigger change then godzilla, since maybe the blob coudnt be affected by the thing.....but yea....even so....if those 2 lifeforms woud ever crash on earth im pretty sure who of the 2 woud end up taking over.

 

i mean realy....the concept of what the thing is so dangerous, that that one scientist in the movie woud predict the thing woud take over the earth within a few years...in the mean time the blod does not realy know how to be subtile in its apperance :D

 

edit: unless those comics tell an other story of course....i dont know those :)

My first horror I genuinely loved and bought on DVD back in the day was Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

 

 

 

I also enjoyed Re-Animator again recently. Full thing is on YouTube.

The first Halloween movie was great. The second was also good except for that one scene.with the

car crash and subsequent fire

that was absurd. The later parts were mediocre.

I'll list a few and try to be brief, but horror/scary movies are my thing, I could fill a whole page, lol. :)

 

The Evil Dead - The original, good remake though. This film just has a real edge to it with it's cheap feel and moody atmosphere. Scary movie when young and alone got an evening. I loved it!

 

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - Again, a decent remake. But that original is a real terrorising film. Again, saw it young, not too young, but it made me twitch in my seat plenty. And to think, Tobe Hooper was looking for a PG rating by leaving gore out. Shows how powerful a film can be when less is more and we make our own horror. A rightful classic.

 

Dawn if the Dead - Yep, 3 with good remakes, lol. But the original here with it's music and satirical approach often mentioned does add a 'real life' charm to the film. The acting is ok but still loose so we feel the characters are very human and in big danger. Delivered on the gore, but the music does it for me here.

 

Candyman - Halloween's score scared the piss out of me as a kid, but this film stepped it up further. A more threatening voice from Tony Todd that until Jigsaw was probably the most formidable horror voice in my head growing up. A bit of a street vibe too, one of all time favourites. That music from Philip Glass is haunting.

 

Wes Craven's New Nightmare - By then, Freddy had been done to death and I found him funny rather than Scary, but then Wes came back and brought Nancy (Teen crush of mine, lol) with him. And it was a belter. Really loved the way this was made in that was it Nancy in trouble or Heather herself, lol. Scream fans should try it, IMO.

 

Scream - The coolest horror of my teens. Rare I like funny with horror, but this is just pure entertainment paying much homage to my classic favourites too. Could quote it like Terminator 2, lol.

 

The Devils Rejects - Not so much outright scares, but after House of 1000 corpses, I was hoping this wouldn't see a slide. From the first scene I was hooked by that 'not knowing where this'll go' feel. Delivered in every way for me, gory, loose and trashy with some uncomfortable moments like the hotel scene. Love it when I can't trust a film to play safe. (Sequel coming too!)

 

Saw - First one, and up to 3 really did it for me. Hostel was gory for the sake of it, but I felt these 3 had a far better story and one hell of a bad guy in Tobin Bell's performances, chilling voice.

 

I'll stop for now, but I am just warming up here, lol. Too many favourites in this genre but those above are just the movies that saw me grow to love horror flicks. (Seeing The Thing and Henry, portrait of a serial killer on here is awesome too - Tense or realistic/ropey works best for me).

Halloween (1978). Admittedly the first time I saw this was only a few years ago so at the time it seemed pretty tame with a lack of blood & gore, but on repeat viewings it actually made me realise how terrifying it was due to its realism. Where Friday The 13th, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Child's Play etc have their moments and they're great films in their own right Halloween just feels bone chilling because it's something that could literally happen with some psycho in a mask chasing after you.

 

I don't even mind the Rob Zombie remakes even though they're full of cliches. I want to see the new one as I'm intrigued to see how it pans out being a direct sequel to the original.

Gonna sound off, can't wait for RDR and need a distraction, lol.

 

@Femme Fatale.

Spoiler

The Exorcist is one I just didn't have any luck with seeing as a kid/teen when it could have had a lasting impression for me. I'd heard of it's reputation and was very keen but by the time I got to see the movie, I was a bit older and the power and possibly expectations too, just didn't grab me. 

 

I do respect the movie though. Great score that really does add to the film, great atmosphere in the closing climaxes too. Just I feel by the time I'd seen it, the shock value in some scenes just didn't work as well long after some of the other movies I mentioned above.

 

Would have loved to have experienced to hype/controversy surrounding it though looking back. (UK censorship, uugh).

 

@Miamivicecity.

 

Spoiler

Oh yeah. Halloween is a real contender for me too. The movie is really good at setting out it's world and it feels small, lol. The atmosphere there is awesome as I feel Michael being a faceless/emotionless foe adds a real fear of the unknown too. The pace is a bit slower by today's films but in the right mindset that plays into the build too. Great movie and a good start for those new to these movies too. Cost little, made a big splash for many of the right reasons, IMHO. Less really can be more.

 

Did enjoy the remake, and felt that follow up started well but drifted. Halloween II/H2O too were decent, need to see the others again as they mesh a bit, but b-movie fun none the Less, lol. Very keen to catch the new one too.

 

@Neon_Dreaming.

 

Spoiler

Not seen 'It Follows' but I'll add that to my list as I'm gonna watch others here I've not seen too. Like to explore these flicks, will pop back one day.

 

@SonnyNapoli.

 

Spoiler

Psycho is just a classic, did like the remake too thought didn't really offer much more being like-for-like. Vince Vaughn was on form though. But for me the surprise was The Birds.

 

It was an 'old film' to me as a kid looking for shocks and gore inaction and horror back then but as I got older and grew into cinema more, eventually I got to The Birds. The film is awesome at pulling you in, it's flipping birds, lol. It's a good old fashioned suspense horror that just builds tension throughout I found. 

 

What's a good horror chat without Hitchcock though. Man new how to make a movie, really wanted the audience in there with the story I find. Atmospheric to the point you gotta look over your shoulder if you hear anything resembling a bird flapping it's wings behind you.

 

@Lock n' Stock.

 

Spoiler

Yep, any of that, pretty much anytime too. Much of those gems are just more than horror films and really the genre isn't why I'll catch them now. Classics I could watch on a Saturday night or Sunday afternoon, lol. But they're the one's. If they didn't do their magic, might not be here now chatting about some real nonsense flicks elsewhere. I've gone on a bit but I'll have a think of some lesser known/popular real favourites to add soon as though these bigger hits and cult favourites deserve their praise, there's some real gems out there once we get tucked in.

Dawn of the dead hands off. absolute, undisputed masterpiece. i hate being scared. scaring or disturbing movies for me are just empty containers. made to make cash by catching stupid teenagers attention. concerning cannibal holocaust. correct me if i'm wrong but we see a real and explicit oppossum death in that film. i tried watching that movie after reading a couple of reviews. but i immediately stopped after that scene. it could be a fake scene, but i'm pretty sure it was real. and it deeply shocked me, not to say traumatized me. if that scene is real, i think that movie distribution is forbidden in most of countries, by nowadays standards

Forgive my late reply. :)

 

Oh indeed, Cannibal Holocaust has quite the reputation for it's depictions of real animal deaths/cruelty etc. And still to this day in the UK it had to be edited to get a full release. That movie was one of the 'big ones' from the Video Nasties era we had during the 80's over here. This film was a huge target for the censors throughout it's distribution after the ban was lifted.

 

Personally I like the film, but I do fully understand how this movie goes too far with some viewers. I don't relish in the animal slaughter but the film itself was a good edgy movie for me though.

 

---------------

 

Another good flick that left a lasting impression on me, and as it was a PG rated movie, my folks were cool with me renting it...

 

Arachnophobia.

 

I saw that flick first time around when I was about 10/11 because it was a PG I didnt expect it to be that bad, I was frozen to my seat!!! Damn that was a real scary ride, lol. Great tension here for a younger viewer.

 

But of course, as I got older, it became fun. But it left such a fascination of spiders on me, I ended up having one as a pet. But also, this movie still has a creepy atmosphere to it, I had to pass it down the family line. My daughter was pissed, lol.

 

Film's still got it. 👹

 

She'll watch Freddy or Jason and eat it up, but this one is a 'no re-watch' for her, lol. (Love Eight Legged Freaks too myself, but that really was just a giggle).

By Starring Kurt Russell & Keith David, SPOILERS AHEAD is one of my all-time favorite scary movies. The isolated atmosphere of the research camp, in the unending white
expanse provides the perfect other-worldly platform for this intense psychological thriller.

Just came in to mention this. I re-watched it the other day and it's so good. Got me good once again with the scares. The tension and suspense, I love the Video Tapes scenes and Ethan Hawke gives one of his best performances ever. I just wish the ending was better.
