I think I am the ONLY person in the world that likes all these remakes just as much as the originals (and in some cases better than the originals). Remakes of The Omen, Halloween, Texas Chaninsaw Massacre, The Hills Have Eyes, Amityville Horror, the list goes on. Plus the upcoming remakes of Friday The 13th, Children Of The Corn and Silent Night Deadly Night look promising. Though if the casting rumors for the remake of Nightmare On Elm Street is true, I don't know if it will be as good. Billy Bob Thorton as Freddy Kruger? "What are you going to do with those finger knives?" "I reckon I'm gonna kill you with them, uh huh." But he is not only known for Slingblade, he was hilarious in Bad Santa one of my favorite movies.
In other words I like alot of the "new" horror movies. Though what disappoints me in these new ones (including the Grudge, The Ring, and most recent flicks) is that they are not all that scary or violent and get a PG13 rating. I want good ol fashioned R rated flicks!! But that's the only reason I can say that I don't like horror of today, otherwise I dig them just as much as the old ones (but than the pre 1970's flicks weren't all that gory anyway more suspense which is good, I'd rather have a scare than a gore, not that there is anything wrong with the gore)
Nobody has done a good cult movie in a long time.
Stories of the Necronomicon would be a good flick if some one would actually figure out that oversized cockaroaches that lay eggs in you is what the true horror of the book. Your conventional Alien face is a roach. Pazzuzu is a mocking of the roach. It was briefly flashed in one of the Exorcist movies.Hmm
yeah plus most of them are all hollywood computer graphics, no more corn syrup blood and horrible acting thats what horror movies were all about for me..... there's only one guy whose made two really fucking sick movies and thats ROB ZOMBIE!!!!! but i totally agree with ya downhill big time!!
Actually I did see a movie and it wasent much of a horror but lost boys 2 had this part where one vamp cut open the stomach of another one and he was grabbing for his intestines like razy so they dident touch the ground THAT was pretty entertaining.
