5.5?

Blasphemy.

One of the great films in the genre.. Of course it will seem flat, considering it was only done for $110,000 in less than a month.

But yeah, suppose it is a love it or hate it film. But I found the performances by Rooker and Tom Towles to both be great.

As I say, I can forgive the flatness of the film when considering the budget and time it took to make the movie.

Strikes me as a film that probably had so much more in mind when it was written. But the limited budget made it impossible to fully see through. But personally I like the 16 mm format it used, gives it an almost home movie feel that gives it an extra kinda creepy factor that works in the movies favor.

It's just a bit much to watch a whole full-length Svankmejer movie. His short films are generally better, I think, and easily available on youtube.

Here's one of my favourites, Punch and Judy.



Imagine watching this on kids television or something in the 60s

I agree, Svankmejer was not made to create full length films, he excels at the short film level.

that one is actually one of my fave horror movies and one of the few that really crept me out

i think it was meant to be "flat" to reflect the flatness of emotions of the main character, he's probably suffering from anhedonia

yeah, that makes sense as well.

Too each their own and all that, but I think it is a great movie. Rooker is actually a great actor, and that performance is one of his best.

Return of the Living Dead (1985)

I've always liked zombie movies, but for whatever reason this movie always eluded me. Mostly for a lack of trying on my part, I always assumed it was some updated version of Romero's movies and therefore wanted no part in it (I still haven't seen Zack Synder's 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead). While this movie wasn't perfect, it did do things a lot differently that really made it standout without the need of gimmicks like "what if the zombies were strippers" or "hey! Nazi zombies are popular, lets make a movie about them!" I even liked how the film had fun with the punk culture while not overtly making fun of it.\
