but you know what i mean about it? how it feels like as far as the history of the movie and people not really knowing about it that it feels like a cult movie?
Box OfficeGross USA: $8,720,000
you misspelled katharine by the way. it's katharine not katherine. i love how she spells her name in a way that no other girl ever has.
but it also seems like a cult film in that well it's kind of small i mean how many people have talked about this movie who watched it, i can't remember anyone on tv ever talking about it or anyone else except online on message boards.
i have only talked to one person who has watched it who i knew in person. also well it's a small horror movie so a lot of them are cult movies i just don't think that many people watched it when it first came out.
you'll be surprised to know that ferris bueller's day off and top gun are cult movies. bc they weren't popular when they were first in theaters.
i find it really hard to believe rosanna arquette is in it bc it was made in 1978 so she was 14 when she was in it? i mean she's not that old now and she looked about 18 in s.o.b. in 1981.
i love how you mentioned a book again you see to read a lot of books right? do you read a lot of fictional novels? is so what kinds of fictional novels do you like to read?
she starts imagining herself as the main heroine in the book(and the actress who plays the main book store girl also plays her book's heroine) which was written in 1959 and it's like a film noir character she's playing. so the killer comes into her world and comes after her thinking she is the character in the book she's reading. so it's cool how they mix together fantasy and reality.so its' kind of like in the mouth of madness, where a book character comes into the real world.have you ever watched either of these films?
can't believe you've never watched ferris bueller's day off or top gun. they were '80s staples classics that everyone who grew up in the '80s watched at least one of them anyway. wow, how did you miss out on watching these iconic '80s films? were you too busy watching horror films to watch them back in the '80s and '90s? or did you never like those kinds of movies?
have you ever watched mst3k
i'm borrowing a book from my apartment manager's wife which is a collection of lovecraft stories.
is in the mouth of madness one of you favorite films? what about another sam neill movie from 1981 called possession? it's a movie i've always wanted to watch ever since i saw the video box cover with the provocative and sexual picture of the nude girl's ass.
and it was stuart gordon at his most accomplished and best as a movie director. i think you'll agree with these 2 statements. do you? he used all his considerable movie directing talents to bring about this amazing and captivating and magical film.
movies like the pit and the pendulum remake from 1991. and i've always gotten the impression that castle freak is a classic film from him.
have you ever watched faust: love of the damned from 2000?
i just read on here that the film i just watched for the 2nd time and first since i was like 12 called the curse(1986) is a lovecraft adaptation. now this is a highly affecting and submersive experience film and a very disturbing film.you have to watch this film. it get my highest recommendation. even at my age and after all the horror films i've watched this film was very unnerving and hard to watch bc of it's slow and consistent descent into hell.
would you call lovecraft the unsung horror hero? why oh why does edgar allen poe get all the credit as being the horror writer who impacted horror more than anyone and is the legend in horror while lovecraft is almost unknown by the general public.and he is like a folk hero? why do you have to be in the know, in the horror community and a horror fan to know who lovecraft is?
the call of cthulhu is in this book of lovecraft stories i told you about. by the way, is the metallica song call of kathulhu on the ride the lightning album based on this story? i know that their guitarist kirk hammett is a big horror movie fan.
when you say, top 50 horror films list do you mean your personal 50 favorite horror films or the 50 best horror film ever made?
why do you think dagon is gordon's best film? is this partly influenced by and is this partly based on it being the best made lovecraft movie adaptation bc you are such a huge lovecraft fan?
so i just watched for the first time the masque of the red death directed by roger corman and starring vincent price. i didn't like it. it was too slow moving and too old of a movie for me to like. i just can never like movies made in the '60s or before bc they are just so slow moving and just not made the way i want movies to be made.
i've also watched recently the raven a poe film directed by corman and starring price, the fall of the house of usher a poe film directed by corman and starring price and also tower of london a poe film directed by corman and starring price. i don't like any of these movies, too old and too slow moving. gosh dang corman loved to adapt poe stories into movies and he always used price in these poe adaptations.i also just watched the fly with vincent price. it's really good. i highly recommend it to you. i bet you've already watched it though.
who is sophie?
well i live in the past in my mind frame, sensibilities and lifestyle, in my point of views. i was told once that i'm an old soul. i personally live in my mind and spirt in the 1980s bc for me that is the best decade of all time and there will never be a decade as great as that decade. never will there be a decade with as many visionary movies, music, tv shows, and toys as the 1980s.
i found out lovecraft died pretty young, he was only like 60 something when he died, maybe even younger than 60 something.
ever heard of the band the misfits? i heard they made songs based on horror movies.
dagon is art at it's highest achieving level.
and the half fish/half human girl was so fucking hot. geez who cares that she's not fully human, i'd fuck her in a heartbeat even if i was petrified of doing it bc of what she looks like!would you fuck her if you had the chance?
i've watched price in countless movies at this point and he's always great, no matter what movie he's in. he was particularly great in the tingler. have you watched this movie?
what is sophie's user name on here? there's is a sophie on here that i've talked to.
you agree with exactly what about me saying the 1980s is the best decade ever as far as how many visionary movies, tv shows, music, and toys were made in the 1980s?
i didn't know you were into punk rock music. some of the movies i've mentioned on here horror movies you've never watched so you never know if you liked punk rock music. i think there is a connection with a person liking punk rock music and liking horror movies.
bc they both represent an anarchic sensibility and aesthetic. and often times outcasts like to listen to punk rock music and watch horror movies.
exactly i've always imagined the band is better with glenn danzig than without. can't believe glenn danzig goes as far back in music as 1977, that makes him really old now. :) wonder why he left the misfits?
danzig is a big fan of the band black sabbath. i know this from watching his episode of that metal show about 10 years ago with bill ward, the original drummer of black sabbath. danzig said that their first album, self tilted album is one of the most influential albums ever made. do you like black sabbath?
but if the half fish girl/half human girl was more beautiful than any other girl in dagon wouldn't you want to have sex with her more than with any other girl in this film? so isn't it more important what a girl looks like than the fact that she is only half human?
did you know that william castle actually produced rosemary's baby? i find this extremely odd. i just found this out about a year ago. i find this extremely odd bc when i think of castle i think of old '50s innocent, kids horror films like the tingler or house on haunted hill not something evil and adult horror like rosemary's baby.
she a horrible person sophie whatever her name is on here. she pretends to care about me deeply having these passionate and in depth emotionally messages to me with love letter kinds of endearing words and then she leaves me alone for months on end and never replies to my messages that i keep sending her over and over again.she proclaims to love me and told me we'll be together someday but never means the words she is saying is only playing with me, is only using me for a good time at my expense.
by the way when you said post punk it immediately reminded me of my all time favorite band pixies. the reason why is my friend i told you about who loves the misfits told me that pixies is a post punk band. do you love pixies?i love that samhain is a gothic band bc i love gothic music like bauhaus. do you love bauhaus?
what about the black sabbath album master of reality? do you love it? also do you love their album sabatoge?
you'd actually have sex with the half fish girl if she was fully human over the more beautiful girl in this film if she was a half fish girl?
nothing wrong with sex with animals by the way. if you are a girl nothing wrong with having sex with a gigantic donged horse and nothing wrong with me watching you having sex with said gigantic donged horse. i mean they have freaking insanely big dongs so every girl at least has thought of in a fantasy way about having sex with a horse.
yes, i'm so glad you mentioned the fearless vampire killers bc this is such a wonderful film and its so well made. its almost a classic.do you love it?
yes, didn't i tell you she pretended and professed to love me and get together with me? also she sent me nude pics of herself and even audio recordings of her voice.she did everything you can possibly expect from a girl who wants to be with you in a relationship but then would not reply for 2 months and did this more than once and when i asked her to please talk to me she would either say nothing or said she will but never did. she's a horrible person who only wanted attention.
and you know what they also remade robocop, ghostbusters, footloose, and a nightmare on elm street.
i can't believe they remade the texas chainsaw massacre and black christmas and the last house on the left and i spit on your grave and the hills have eyes. i really could go on and on listing all these horror movie classics that they had no right to make remakes of.
so if a movie can't be improved upon it should never be remade and ghostbusters can't be made better so it shouldn't have been remade. also my friend said this remake damages and tarnishes the original film by it's existing bc from now on we live in a world in which has the original film, a classic film and the stupid and wrong remake. also he said the remake is an inferior product to the original film in the same way that the wnba is an inferior league to the nba.i said having these 2 movies in the world is like being made the best gourmet meal in the world and getting fed this food and being full and then being given a generic hamburger from mcdonald's and then having to eat it so over eating when you don't need to eat it. so we have 2 movies and only one is necessary to watch. we don't need the remake and we shouldn't have the remake bc it's unnecessary bc it's not as good as the original.movies are about giving us something we've never seen before. so to make a remake is starting off as a bad idea inherently it only becomes necessary if you can make it better than the original.
then the hills have eyes remake shouldn't have ever been made.
now what did you think of piranha(2010) which was directed by the same director who directed the remake of the hills have eyes, alexandre aja? my gosh this film is amazing. even if it's a remake of one of my all time favorite films piranha (1978)directed by joe dante i would be ok with that bc this film piranha(2010) is technically one of the best horror films and films ever made.
did you actually watch the joke that is the black christmas remake?
i cant' believe andrea martin stooped so low as to act in this movie when she was in the original film.
did you like the texas chainsaw massacre remake or the i spit on your grave remake or the the last house on the left remake?
running zombies? this is the worst thing ever in a movie. i'm a horror movie traditionalist so i value and respect slow walking zombies. running zombies is so wrong also on a fear and suspense gaining way to the audience.
do you know they freaking made a remake of one of the most respected and legendary horror films ever made in suspiria even? now this is blasphemy. man if they can make a remake of this horror film no film is sacred, no film is off limits for remake.
piranha(2010) is so epically and legendarily great and classic that it's required viewing by you and i've never seen the violence and carnage and ways of making you very disturbed in the massacre part of this film that happens in the last 30 min. of this film. also it's a perfect film and one of the best horror films made since 2010.it's in the top 5 for sure. it's also one of them most effective horror films made since 2010 in making you feel fear and dread and bleakness. no hope for our lives and our community.now are you going to watch this film?
ok oh are you so conservative and so innocent and unseasoned a horror movie watcher that you couldn't handle a film like i spit on your grave? i'm being funny not being mean but i just can't believe you were so offended by this film? you are talking about this film like its' an abomination and should have never been made like it's appalling or something? like it's immoral or unethical.
so 2 of my friends have different opinions on re-animator. one said it's a zombie movie and the other said it's not a zombie movie. so what is it? zombie movie or not zombie movie?
when you said infected people it reminded me a of a splendid cult film called street trash which i finally watched recently. have you ever watched this great and classic film?
it turns out asia argento is a horrible person. she raped a kid who was like 25 years old when she was like 40 years old.
but aren't horror movies all about being mean spirited and wild and free with violence and carnage and aren't horror movies all about pushing the envelope of what is accepted in society and to show things that are ugly and that can't be shown in other genres of film? aren't horror movies the most free form of expression in film?
have you ever watched mother's day(1980)?
what's mean spirited about a rapist being a retarded guy?
so you thought the rape scenes were exploitive and classless and pointless in the context of the kind of movie it is?
even worse then that she raped a kid under 25 and even worse then that she was with a guy in a sexual way who was under 25 when she was 40. what a horrible person she is.
what makes re-animator not a zombie film? i never thought of it as a zombie film maybe bc i like it bc i hardly ever like zombie films.
i also love the pain and torture they put that girl through. nothing please me more than watching a girl get tortured in a slasher film.
about i spit on your grave: why not make him retarded? i don't understand why you have a moral problem with making a rapist retarded?by the way how can you love the film the last house on the left(1972) which is about a guy who raped a girl but yet have a problem with a retarded guy raping a girl in i spit on your grave?oh, so you think i spit on your grave is a film without merit bc it's an exploitation film?
it' also wrong for a guy 40 to get with a girl 25. it's robbing and stealing youth so to speak.
are you 12? how can you be so blase and ignorant and immature and naive as to say you'd love to be raped by a girl? you don't know what rape is i guess. rape is the worst thing that can happen to a person. it literally takes years for a girl to get over it and most girls never get over it, no matter if it happened 20 years ago even.
you didn't answer my question: what about re-animator makes it not a zombie film?
what did you mean by "uhoh" when replying to my writing: i also love the pain and torture they put that girl through. nothing please me more than watching a girl get tortured in a slasher film.
why is making a character retarded who raped a girl in bad taste? it's just a disability that a person has how is that in bad taste?
so i spit on your grave(1978) is porn is what you are saying right? bc it's intent is to sexually arouse instead of to be there for story purposes or realistic purposes or artistic purposes right?
it is ok. there's nothing wrong with fucking a horse if you're a girl i mean it doesn't say in the bible oh don't fuck a horse so if god is ok with it i am too. now watching a porn of it?…
who knows if the 17 yr old wanted it or not? we know! bc they put the story out on the internet she got in trouble for it legally so yes we know he was raped by her.
there is nothing wrong with a girl having sex with a horse or a dog. do you think a dog or a horse feels pain from this?
but is the director just doing it to entertain as a cheap thrill at the expense of the girl getting degraded on film or does he care bout the issue of women's rights in america and the world is this an empowering movie for women?
