Overrated much?

I seriously don't get why this is being called a "classic"!?, it's not, it's really slow and predictable, it's a total waste of time. It's exactly like those never ending Friday 13th sequels, they never would end and they were all the same.

I just don't get what's so great about this, there is no story to it, just a bunch of kids in a deserted place and they pretty much all get kil... read more

Not The Kind Of Guy You'd Lend Your Tools To

As someone whom is often very frustrated with most horror flicks, I was very pleased that this movie's plotline came off as very genuine. While most horrors tend to want the viewer say things to the screen like "Idiot! Run outside, not to the upstairs!" or "Don't go in there, you moron!", this movie actually made the situation of the onscreen victims seem logistically believable. Therefor,... read more

A classic

Since it is such a classic, I really had to watch this flick at some point and I had some rather high expectations (you can say whatever you want but it is definitely a really bad-ass title). The first time I watched it, to be honest, I was actually rather apprehensive as I thought it would be really terrifying. Eventually, I thought it was not really scary, sure, it was unsettling but not really ... read more

Lessons To Be Learned From Horror Films (195 movies items)

"Just keep on driving.... Don't go into, the spooky old house/building.... Also, be young and loose and free, and travel in a van into the lawless Southern wilds, and this is what will happen to you. Living without a license, or a care in the world, and you die."

Scarier Than Fiction (50 movies items)

"Ed Gein The film, for the most part is based on the story of Ed Gein, the infamous "Butcher of Plainview", who had killed two people. Later police found bodies, that were exhumed from local grave sites, and even were used for decorations. Gein's murders were also inspiration for films such as Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Psycho, Deranged, and many other films."

"19.1. Texas Chainsaw Massacressa suurimman vaikutuksen minuun teki sen "no bullshit" -asenne. Vasaraniskut kalloon tulevat noin kahden sekunnin hämmästelyn jälkeen luonnollisena reaktiona, ja Leatherfacen habitus vaikuttaa siltä, että hän vain ihmettelee, miksi ihmiset juoksevat joukkona hänen taloonsa. Shoutgageja maalaillaan hyvin harvoin, ja elokuvan kauhu tuleekin siitä, miten tappajalle tämä on ihan täysin primitiivinen reaktio eikä mikään superälykäs suunnitelma, jossa lei"
