Sci-Fi, Horror, Suspense Movies Discussion

  1. So, what are your favorites!? I have seen sooooooo many lately! I have seen some really good but gorey flicks, some quite disturbing ones too....also some sort of funny ones and some terrible stinky ones! So share your reviews and thoughts here. I have recently (in the last two months) viewed Hostel, Wolf Creek, High Tension, Zombie Honeymoon, Final Destination 3 (although I did not see #1 or #2 of that series yet), Citizen "O", and more....

    Love the thread, Liza.

    You haven't seen Final Destination I and II? Oh, goodness. Good flicks, yes. Of course, the first one is always the best. But, I liked II as well. Haven't seen III.

    How about Saw I and II? Excellent movies.

    Hide and Seek is a great one with Robert De Niro and Dakota Fanning. Loved the twists. Wrong Turn is pretty fair about mutants and in-breeding.

    Didn't really like Hostel all that much.

    And, the movie, Grudge, made me cringe (those noises sent chills up and down my spine).

    My all time favs are Night of the Living Dead (black and white original), Halloween (the first one.....great B movie), Salem's Lot (the original with David Soul), Shaun of the Dead (great British comedy on the same line as Night of the Living Dead), Dawn of the Dead, and Little Shop of Horrors (comedy with Rick Moranis.........."Feed me Seymour, feed me now").

    I've got more.........

    I never saw Grudge, but I did see the previews for Grudge II. It was only the preview and it scared the heck out of me!!!

    The 1933 King Kong!
    I've met Forest Ackerman, nicknamed 4E, who worked on some of the models and wrote books on the making of the movie.
    He still gives tours of his musty mildew smelling "mansion" filled with years on props, movie sets, and costumes. One of Kongs hands is on display.

    Yes! I knew you would love it....since you started the last one, I figured you would...haha.

    We probably have slightly different likes and dislikes in these movies cause I thought Hostel was very creative and different...though very disturbing! ha.
    The Grudge was a little weird, but pretty interesting. I saw Venom last night and it was not what I expected! Pretty good, I thought!
    Oh, and the night of the living dead movies were good! I agree on that!

    King Kong....an oldie but a goodie! And it was re-done at least twice with Jessica Lange and then a last year too, right? I saw that one. It was pretty good too.

    Venom was unique. Saw that the other night.

    I saw, Skeleton Key last week. I really enjoyed that one. Really good acting and suspense!!

    I liked the first Friday the 13th, but not any after that one.

    Did you like Se7en? Now that one was so good. And, did you like, Fallen?

    I think it's my favorite because it was the first i saw. We actually bought our first TV so my Dad could watch King Kong with his girls. He was so excited, telling us all about it.
    We had root beer floats.

    Later we saw the one with giant grasshoppers, one with ants. My sister went nuts waiting for the 3D "Thirteen Ghosts".
    Daughter watched "Monster Zero" countless times.

    Oh, I can relate to movies and/or TV events with fathers.

    When I was very young, we'd watch the Friday night fights on the old black and white TV. I'd get to sit in his lap in the "big chair" and we'd drink chocolate milk.

    Now you have me missing my daddy...........*sigh*

    I liked, It....."BEEP BEEP Richie! They ALL float down here." Pennywise was a terror - any child watching this would have coulrophobia for life!!!

    Siri:
    I miss my Daddy too. HE liked the fights!
    Once he was SO READY for a great TV evening. We made cooked chocolate pudding and chili.

    The fight lasted less than a minute - knockout.

    Venom was unique. uhuh. Good. Skeleton Key was also different and pretty good. Friday the 123th.....Saw it soooo long ago! Can't remember much....but it was scarey. Seven? You mean with Brad Pitt? Yeah....it was good. Fallen was very good in my book! Loved it.
    Oh, The Decent (in theatres still, I think) is pretty good. I want to see it again, but the BF is not buying it. LOL.
