Yeah, that was another scene that got to me. It seemed so realistic the way it went down.

Spoiler for Spoiler:
The way Leatherface just waltzes out and bashes him in the head like it's nothing is so creepy. He treated him just like cattle, essentially. Then the way the dude had a seizure on the floor...that was disturbing.

But there are some really great, well made horror movies out there. All time favorite is hands down the original Halloween - I'm a fan of the sequels, but I generally regard the first one as its own standalone movie (where it's just a terrifying force of evil stalking innocent babysitters and the killer's not actually hunting down family). The Haunting, Poltergeist, the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Shining, Psycho, 28 Days/Weeks Later, Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, The Ring (Japanese version), Carrie...you can't go wrong. Even the classic Universal monster movies are great (The Mummy, Frankenstein, Dracula...classics). I'll throw a more contemporary movie in and say I thought the Conjuring was really well done. A great horror movie is also a great social commentary since the truly scary ones are tapping into the fears of the culture at the time.



Prepare to snooze a bit for Barry Lyndon. As a period film, it's amazing - the costumes, sets, all natural lighting (every set was lit with whatever natural light sources you happen to see in the room or from moderate lighting shone in through the windows) - it's truly an accomplishment in that regard. The story is even engaging for the first 90 minutes. But then it just keeeppss goinggggg. Worth a watch, but it's definitely not my favorite Kubrick film.

What else haven't you seen? I've mentioned these earlier since I recently did a Kubrick run myself, but The Killing and Paths of Glory are often overlooked Kubrick films that really deserve a watch.




It's for sure sci-fi/horror. Aliens is sci-fi/action. Every Alien film is like a director's take on the material.
Let's put it this way, I've only seen A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Dr. Strangleove, Eyes Wide Shut, 2001, and Full Metal Jacket. The last two films you mentioned, Barry Lyndon, Lolita, and that ancient roman epic film he made? Still haven't seen them yet.

The best form of horror in terms of cinema is 'found footage' imo

REC 1&2 are particular favourites of mine

I saw the Fate of the Furious.
Spoiler for Furious:

Jason Statham and Charlize Theron star in the movie. They also starred together in another heist movie with fast cars, The Italian Job.

In Fate, Statham kills a bunch of bad guys while holding a baby and a submarine chases "the team." You have to see it to believe it.

Spoiler for Spoiler:
The seizure, and then how he bashed him again to make it stop is truly what made it so shocking.

What does the number matter if you don't care about them?
