If the chick in the poster didn't have scary teeth she'd be a 9. Solid 8 though. Those eyes...

i think i liked it more than you but i agree with pretty much everything you said.

i watched you're next recently. it was great. definitely among the elite modern horror films imo, just a perfect blend of scary, violent, and fun. the twists are great and i love the casting. a must watch as far as im concerned.

need to watch the Wailing soon. one of my friends keeps telling me to check it out, currently has a 99% on RT so i have high hopes.

So I'm curious about modern (within the last... 15-20 years) slasher movies that are something more than just Scream sequels and those awful movies ripping them off, like I Know What You Did Last Summer. Deconstructions (besides Cabin in the Woods), well-made revivals, and just weird takes on the genre are great. Just give me them.

Slasher films are kind of out of style but The Strangers and Sinister are probably the best that fit in that category.

Seen The Strangers, and it was ****ing awesome, but I'll check out Sinister. And while I love a ****ton of the horror that's come out recently, slasher movies are a great concept for the new horror movement to play with, and I'm sad that they're largely ignored. I feel like a new take on the basic concept of the original Halloween would be amazing in the current climate (aside from the Rob Zombie movies, which I still hold are fun as **** and the best Halloween movies since the original by a mile).

There's Hush, but while I liked it it wasn't amazing.

Not exactly a slasher but have you seen Martyrs?

I have not. Very quick synopsis that ruins nothing but still makes me want to watch it?

And is Hush a decent movie for someone with mediocre taste in things in general?

Chick is tortured for years and doesn't know why. She tries to find out why.

*shrug* that might make you like it more.

Sounds ****ing good. Remember, I liked the Rob Zombie Halloween movies, so I am probably a pleb. I even liked the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie.
