Scream 4 (2011)
Re-watch.

Watched it with some friends, and I still enjoyed it really much.

A really atmospheric horror film, with some really suspenseful & creepy scenes.

The score is beautiful, and the visuals are great.

My favorite Argento film.

The story & acting aren't the film's strongest parts, like most Argento films, but the gore & the visuals are beautiful!

The score is phenomenal & the visuals are great. The camera-angles are really inventive as well.

Dear Mr. Gacy (2010)
Not a pure horror film, since it's mostly just a drama/thriller, but this is one of the most disturbing films I've seen in a while.

It's not graphic, except for one scene, but it really gets under your skin.

[Rec] (2007)
Re-watch.
A really claustrophobic & intense film, with some truly creepy moments.

Orlok's rating:
This has been a not-so-good marathon so far, since I haven't seen that much movies. I've been busy and not in the mood.

Anyway, I just watched my favorite film in the Friday the 13th-series, part 4.

It's my favorite, since the characters are great, the dialogue is hilarious, the deaths are brutal, and it's all in all a fun & suspenseful slasher.

Prom Night (1980)
This wasn't the kind of slasher film I expected, but I still liked it very much.

It slow-building, and the ending was actually really emotional.

oh, and I really dig the 80's soundtrack.

An incredibly well done low-budget adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's story.

It's also a phenomenal homage to silent & expressionistic movies.

Stuart Gordon + H.P. Lovecraft = Great and inventive horror flicks!

The Thing (2011)
One of the worst movies I've ever seen. It's a disgrace to the original.

The CGI looks like shit, and most of it is completely laughable. The plot is full of holes, and it lacks reasons how the characters could've become infected.

Also, the climax is the most horrendous thing I've ever seen.

Stay away from this film! Watch John Carpenter's version from 1982, which is a flawless masterpiece.

Re-watch.

In my opinion, one of the best movies ever made.

An astonishing anthology, that's perfect for Halloween.

Non-horror movies

Phenomenal thriller with great cinematography, acting & score.

I found it to be way darker than I expected.

Recommended!
