Just finished watching Hellraiser for the first time. I'm not a huge fan of monster/demon movies but I liked it, I mean it's a ****ing classic so I don't know if any horror fan dislikes it. I guess for me I like horror films that are either 21st century or from the 50s and 60s (The Innocents is my favorite horror movie of all time).
Gah...I should sleep so I'm not useless tomorrow

Saw 100 feet at Screamfest a billion years ago. Very standard, almost a Lifetime horror flick...still, entertaining as well as disposable. Gonna give Loved Ones another chance. Maybe enough time has passed since I watched it where my meter might be set to where I can judge it on it's own merits as opposed to my expectations. And I still maintain that if you edited ALL the Hellraiser flicks together you could make a great movie. All of them have epic moments, yet all of them are also soundly flawed. If you want to see the best Hellraiser flick ever, me and Luc Skybomba agree...it's Event Horizon.

I thought Event Horizon was one of the lamest movies ever. I was laughing through a lot of it after Jason Isaacs revealed where the flesh-eating monsters came from.

Oh man...so disagree. Oh well. Hey, that 100 feet callback reminds me of the other flick I saw that day...have you seen The Burrowers? You may wanna put that on the watch list.

Haha! Most people think Event Horizon is one of the worst movies ever while others think it's criminally underrated.
I am somewhere in the middle, lol, but closer to meh. I bought it at a Circuit City going outta business sale for 4 buck because I was hoping it would be criminally underrated. I was mislead.
I am still of the opinion that Hellraiser 1 & 2 are good despite their flaws.
Hey, Diehard, did you ever read Clive Barker?

JD: No I haven't, I'll put it on my watchlist for sure. The story sounds pretty interesting.
Orphy: No, I'm not really a fan of the type of horror he writes. I just find his stuff gross, and not in a good way.

I ended up watching one more movie last night. I saw Night of the Living Dead for the first time. Also the first Romero film I've seen. Trying to catch up on some of the classics.

Barker's short stories are better (I think) than his longer works. The brevity keeps him a little more focused. Once again, reminds me of a movie. Diehard have you seen Midnight Meat Train?
