    Just finished Martyrs. Damn, that film was ****ing brutal. Obviously the second half was really hard to watch, so haunting and sadistic. Really takes you to the depths of evil that humans are capable of. Honestly though, it didn't have quite the effect on me that JD described. No doubt it was a very good film, but I don't feel as if my soul has been forever changed lol.

    Maybe I'll watch it again in a few years, see how it affects me then.

    I watched the Diabolique remake when it came out in the theater. I hadn't seen the original, but the remake follows the story closely, has a close up of Sharon Stone's ass, so I thought it was okay, but the original is in another league.
    I was reading some reviews of the remake and a lot of them were pretty positive. I'd like to see it at some point.

    Les Diaboliques & Charade have the reputation of being the two best Hitchcockian films that Hitchcock didn't direct. Both are worth watching!
    Still haven't seen Charade. :(

    I haven't watched Haxan from beginning to end!
    Why not? Do you have the DVD?

    Anytime Adgy, or anyone here, however, reviews a silent film, particularly, the spooky kind, it makes me happy! :D
    Other than Dreyer stuff, what else would you recommend in that department? Did you ever see A Page Of Madness?

    I was browsing through the channels the other day and caught Antichrist being played. It was about in the middle of the movie and some serious nudity going on so I had to stop and see what this was all about. Within minutes I was watching Willem Dafoe getting knocked unconcious by blunt trauma to his naked groin followed by his erect penis ejaculating blood.

    I was like "what the **** is this?". I had to switch the channel, not because I was disgusted but because I felt this movie deserved to be watched in its entirety

    It wasn't bad! Definitely a bit out there... I think the movie is confusing just for the sake of being confusing at times but it had some redeeming qualities and you never quite know where it's going. Obviously there are some scenes that... well.. let's just say if you're uncomfortable with full frontal nudity this isn't for you. I was surprised to see this play on the Swedish equivalent of PBS (I think).

    That movie just worked me. As a lapsed Catholic the stripping of her humanity piece by piece in the name of religion, man it got to me. So relentless, even in the way they feed her by cracking the spoon against her teeth. It's horrifying to me. I will never be able to get those images out of my head.

    I remember first hearing about Salo when I was 18, was too scared to see it and never thought I'd ever watch it. All these years later I decided to see it. I bet it was extremely shocking for its time, but I wasn't really put off by the film. Just had a depressing atmosphere and it seemed like Pasolini was one bitter and angry man when he made this film. Didn't really like this movie all that much, I am curious to see some of Pasolini's earlier works though (like Attacone)

    After having watched it yesterday, the breadth and scope of the film's brutality and depravity is really starting to get to me. I've been thinking about it a lot today. Man I NEED to find another similar movie lol.

    It's one of those things that if it comes on the telly and there's nothing else going on, say no scheduled Magic the Gathering tournaments, it might be worth watching. Or you can just explore more of Henri-Georges Clouzot's work if you haven't (Like Wages of Fear). :D

    Apparently, Hitchcock wanted to get the rights to Boileau-Narcejac's "She Who Was No More," which was the basis for Les Diaboliques, but lost, and as a consolation, bought the right to Boileau-Narcejac's "The Living and the Dead" which served as the basis for Vertigo. Tic for Tac.

    Alas, I don't have the DVD, and that's one reason. It really is one of those movies that one has to be in the right mood to watch, you know, otherwise it's kinda hard to watch it all the way through. I would also like to watch the one with Burroughs narration.

    Yeah, I watched A Page of Madness, silly, I recommend it to you. :P

    There's quite a bit. Have you ever watched any of Murnau's work, say, the silent Faust or Noseferatu?

    You can or rather SHOULD. Faust is the APEX of silent film German expressionism. :D

    What happens if I watch Martyrs, but am not a Catholic (lapsed or otherwise) and don't have a soul to begin with, what effect would it have on me? :O

    Haha! If you look up the Martyrs on Amazon they'll let you know it's frequently bought together with Inside and Frontier (s)

    Wouldn't that make a swell triple feature? I'll bring the Goobers. :D

    I decided to take a brief hiatus from my horror movie binge and watch a film I've been meaning to see for quite some time, a Japanese movie called Confessions. It centers around a woman whose daughter was killed and her quest to take revenge on those she holds responsible. The story is told from the point of view of several different characters. I had no idea what I was in for since I did very little research prior to seeing it, all I knew was that it was one of the best Japanese films of 2010. This film had such a profound emotional impact of me. It was one of the darkest, morbid, and powerful movies I've seen in my entire life. The ending was sooooo amazing as well. Left me speechless. This movie is not pleasant to watch, but it's so well made, and the acting is superb. I'd recommend this film to just about anyone - it's that ****ing good.

    Okay, back to finding another horror movie to watch for tomorrow, or tonight maybe if I can't fall asleep.
