It's a film that people love or hate, starts off slow but I thought the ending was pretty awesome.

did some research and Dread Central LOVED it. Said it was what indy horror should strive for. I'll tough it out, promise.

I watched Skew and Dogtooth. I'll save my two cents on Skew for after jd.
Dogtooth, meanwhile, I sort of liked after watching it, but I catch myself actually spending time thinking about it now and then, so it's clearly grown on me.
I just received The Innocents. I'm definitely going to watch that. What a pedigree. Freddie Francis shooting; Truman Capote adapting Henry James; and Deborah Kerr. At first I misread and thought Freddie Francis directed, but I'm still in. I may have to watch it tonight or early tomorrow, because Black Sunday and Cabin in the Woods are coming tomorrow, and I'll probably pop those in when I get them, too.

Yea Skew is a genius film imo, looking forward to discussing it with you fools

I'm really grateful The Innocents was mentioned here. I probably would have passed this one over for years. I was expecting it to be good in certain areas, but it surprised me a little with its depth and detail, and really hooked me with sound design (except for one too-terrible sound edit and what are probably some artifacts of unremastered age).

OK. I finally endured Skew. Which I think is a contraction of screw you. I have watched a LOT, damn, a metric ton of bad horror movies. This one deserves a special place in hell. I really don't want to waste more time on this than I already have...but I have to offer my thoughts according to the rules so here goes. First off, just because you can make AN ENTIRE MOVIE w/the viewpoint of a single hand held camera doesn't mean you should. Oh, and this includes sufferring through repeated segments where you get to watch the past 5 minutes in REWIND...then forward again. This movie is one long stretch of nothing happens punctuated by some of the least tolerable people ever to be in a movie. The only real violence...2 unpeasant roadkill sequences. No logic, very little story and an ending that, I must have missed in between my tears of boredom. The whole point seems to be that the guy can't stop fiming/the camera wont shut off...all this would be remedied by a)taking the camera from him and shoving it firmly up his ass or b) leaving his annoying ass by the side of the road. Diehard...I don't know what I did to you...but asking me to suffer through this was an act of violence.

Hey...I'm worried. Where's Diehard? Anyway, JWR are you still in? I'm gonna throw an open into the mix. The movie is Detention(2012). It's a redbox rental or maybe a netflix snail mail choice. Really want to see someone else's valuable opinion on this one. It's quite unique. Who' the bunny?
