Default Movie Club nominations thread

Candidate 1: Carrie (1976) by Skaligojurah

A mousy and abused girl with telekinetic powers gets pushed too far on one special night.
Candidate 2: The Haunting (1963) by Tore

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057129/

Quote:
"Dr. Markway, doing research to prove the existence of ghosts, investigates Hill House, a large, eerie mansion with a lurid history of violent death and insanity. With him are the skeptical young Luke, who stands to inherit the house, the mysterious and clairvoyant Theodora and the insecure Eleanor, whose psychic abilities make her feel somehow attuned to whatever spirits inhabit the old mansion. As time goes by it becomes obvious that they have gotten more than they bargained for as the ghostly presence in the house manifests itself in horrific and deadly ways."

It is supposedly the world's spookiest movie, yet I haven't seen it! It's something I'd like to remedy one of these days.
Candidate 3: Brazil (1985) by MrDood

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088846/

Quote:
Gilliam sometimes refers to this film as the second in his "Trilogy of Imagination" movies, starting with Time Bandits (1981) and ending with The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1989).[1] All are about the "craziness of our awkwardly ordered society and the desire to escape it through whatever means possible."[1] All three movies focus on these struggles and attempts to escape them through imagination—Time Bandits, through the eyes of a child, Brazil, through the eyes of a man in his thirties, and Munchausen, through the eyes of an elderly man.
Gilliam has stated that Brazil was inspired by George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four—which he has admitted never having read[6]—but is written from today's perspective rather than looking to the future as Orwell did. In Gilliam's words, his film was "the Nineteen Eighty-Four for 1984."

Dystopian satire, they say. Terry Gilliam amazes at times... from subtleties snuck in, to whole stage designs.
Candidate 4: Nosferatu, a Symphony of Horror (1922) by DJChameleon

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0013442/

Quote:
Nosferatu is a German Expressionist horror film, directed by F. W. Murnau, starring Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok. The film, shot in 1921 and released in 1922, was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, with names and other details changed because the studio could not obtain the rights to the novel (for instance, "vampire" became "Nosferatu" and "Count Dracula" became "Count Orlok")

Nosferatu was ranked twenty-first in Empire magazine's "The 100 Best Films of World Cinema" in 2010.
Candidate 5: The Squid and the Whale By JackPat

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0367089/

Quote:
Based on the true childhood experiences of Noah Baumbach and his brother, The Squid and the Whale tells the touching story of two young boys dealing with their parents' divorce in Brooklyn in the 1980s.
"officially" the nomination period starts Monday, and ends Wednesday if we don't get to 5 votes. However, if you feel the need to nominate now, go ahead.

Big thanks to Dankrsta who has offered to supply the movie links from now on, and has been an amazing help by moderating club threads.

Had a busy Wednesday, forgot to update this.

Anyway, even if the interest isn't 100% there, I'm proceeding. The winner is The Haunting.

Dankrsta, can you PM me a link, and close this thread?
