One of the things that often helps horror movies is when certain moments and images are left up to the imagination. If something is left up to the imagination rather than being displayed (however graphically) by the camera, it’s a lot creepier because each individual viewer is going to picture the horrific image in a different way depending on what he/she finds scary. This is why it’s so great... read more

the giraffe's favorite "zombie" movies (12 movies items)

" An original idea for an infection & the fact that most of the carnage is left to the imagination makes this one well worth watching. You may never listen to radio the same afterward. Featured zombie type: Virus-infected. Flesh eater yes, but it's unclear if there's any re-animation."

"25.04. PC/TV, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Bruce McDonald This film showcases magnificently the H.P. Lovecraft quote: The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown The first half of Pontypool is stupendous. A refreshing take on the zombie genre as all we see very long into the movie is a radio station, its three workers and the disturbing hints concerning the outside world. But yeah, as soon as the unknown is explained by a p"

Mack's Movies 2013: April (19 movies items)

" April 6th: Instant Watch, computer Overall opinion: Awesome Stephen King once wrote that he tried to create a radio show on a scale of Orson Welles' adaptation of War of the Worlds. After many attempts he came to the conclusion that radio is a lost art. I dunno if it really is, but this movie Pontypool came off, to me, as the great horror radio show that never was, that King might have been imagining. It just so happens it's in movie form, and while the film side of it isn't the best (chara"

Movies the giraffe watched: March 2013 (21 movies items)

"First viewing - March 18th/19th The idea behind this film & the first hour or so definitely make this one well worth watching in my opinion. I deeply appreciated the fact that most of the violence & bloodshed was left off-screen to be told by various characters so that I had to use my imagination instead of being shown everything. It worked far better to ratchet up the tension than the typical approach. I also loved the way it's set which lends a feeling of claustrophobia to the proceedings. Th"
