Ringu (1998)

I enjoyed it and it has been quite awhile since I saw the 2003 American remake that I forgot a lot of the plot details so it was like seeing it again for the first time. I enjoyed the interaction between the husband and wife, and it was nice to see a relationship dynamic that itself wasn't strained because of each other, but rather through a child. Definitely not really the edge-of-your-seat thriller it was hyped as a decade ago, but still a damn fine ghost story.



The Crow (1994)

It's been years since I've seen this, coming on 10 actually now that I think about it. Pretty sure it was sophomore year in high school when I had my long hair, because I went as Eric Draven for Halloween. Still as great as I remember it and easily one of the best visual examples of the "World of Darkness" universe.



Pet Cemetery (1989)

Holy crap was this ever boring. The only joy I got out of it was now understanding what South Park was lampooning in the Butters episode in regards to the old man and his speech mannerisms.

One of the scariest movies I've ever seen.

Peeping Tom (1960)

Quite a nice subtle thriller that does just enough to push the creep factor without going overboard into full blown ludicrousness. The killer is just a normal guy, albeit with some oddities, none that would make a person think he's a killer. Only thing I didn't really like about the movie was how the ending seemed a little rushed and anticlimactic. Definitely a movie worth checking out if you're into older films, especially if you like Alfred Hitchcock.

Yeah, that movie terrified me as well. Really well made though, I'm a bit of a documentary fanatic and this is one my favorites.

I watched this last night:



Basically it's the story of these two young guys who moved into a shitty apartment in San Francisco, and ended up living next to two insane, abusive, alcoholic men who would were constantly shouting and yelling curses at one another. One of the young guys eventually confronted the neighbors about the noise and was threatened with his life, so he began to record the fighting in case he needed some kind of evidence if any conflict were to arise.

They ended up recording hours and hours of the two men, and soon started distributing the tapes, which became a bit of an underground phenomenon in the Bay Area, and which now has a cult following.

The film brought up a lot of interesting issues for me, involving human nature and the idea of privacy and exploitation. It was an entertaining watch, I give it my stamp of approval.

Also, if anyone ever has any documentary recommendations let me know, I'm always keeping an eye out!

Awesome, thanks! I've seen a few of these and have been meaning to check out others, altogether solid list. I've been trying to find The Devil and Daniel Johnston for years, no one around here has it and I can't find any good streaming sites to watch it.

Dear Zachary is probably the most emotional documentary I have ever seen. I loved it.
