I caught FROM HELL the other night and liked it enough to add it to my seemingly small list of winners for 2001. Heather Graham didn't really bother me that much, but I thought that Johnny Depp gave another wonderful performance. The story had some great suspense and atmosphere as well as some great...

Thanks for the heads-up Chris. I look forward to hopefully getting this before Halloween. Yeah Griff, I purchased one of the Limited Editions of OPERA from my local Best Buy. I even gave them the issue number on the form. Well at least they are doing the right thing by sending the replacements out a...

I really enjoyed this one as well. Definitely one of the better films to come out this year, even if it doesn't fit everyone's definition of horror. The cast was definitely better than I expected. John Dahl did a great job directing too, but I still thought LAST SEDUCTION was a little better. The on...

Man, I have always wanted to see this but was never given the opportunity. But the only bootlegger known to sell it at one point was Revok and I refused to go that route. So I keep my eyes open for a potential trade. The only reason I had any interest in it was because of the cartoon where Boba Fett...

Well I went to Best Buy and purchased the Limited Editions of SUSPIRIA and OPERA. As I had feared, OPERA would not even read in my Apex or DVD-ROM drive. No big deal...I just went to Anchor Bay's website and filled out the form for a replacement disc and look forward to recieving it before too long ...

If so, hopefully someplace around here will have it to rent so I can check it out. From what I heard, the first one is...

Did anyone get the new Argento DVDs from Anchor Bay?

I was wondering if anyone on here got the new DVD releases of Argento's SUSPIRIA and OPERA. I saw the Limited Edition of SUSPIRIA at Best Buy for $27.99. It looked cool, but I was wary of getting it since I heard Anchor Bay recalled all of the OPERA discs due to playback problems. Because of this, I...

With all respect to Remo, I've heard more bad things than good about this one. And I was real iffy about seeing it in the first place. I did give it some consideration the other night, but decided to wait for video. I went to see O instead and was glad I did http://www.shadows.com/ubb/smile.gif

I assume the one with Scott Glenn that you were referring to was a TV-Movie, right? If so, I think the title for that one is COUNTDOWN TO LOOKING GLASS. Am I right?

I myself don't agree with critics (who can?), but I always wondered what makes a movie great/bad in Roger Ebert's eyes. As I recall he trashed HANNIBAL (which I thought was a decent movie) and THE BEYOND by giving them each one and 1/2 stars. So how in the world does something like GHOSTS OF MARS ra...

AMERICAN OUTLAWS

Finally caught up to this one. Given it's weak opening and the fact that it isn't even in the "top ten" this week, I decided to catch it on the big screen while I still had time. I have to say that I really enjoyed this movie and didn't think it was as bad as the critics are saying (what do they kno...

Well it took long enough, but I think we have another contender for "best horror film of 2001". THE OTHERS was nothing short of a classic from beginning to end. A film that I knew very little about but walked away from completely surprised. I'm not too familiar with this director, but now I want to ...

I haven't seen it yet but I plan to eventually. Based on what I heard, it sounded like a movie worth seeing. Only problem is that there are other movies that I really want to see first. I might check it out this week if I have a chance before seeing AMERICAN OUTLAWS. If I don't see it in the theater...

Although I had heard many negative comments, I managed to avoid any spoilers since I wanted to be surprised and form my own opinion. This is indeed one of the best movies I've seen all year.

Went to see this one today. I really loved the first film and thought it was one of the better genre offerings of last year (even if it couldn't be considered a true horror film). So I naturally went into this one hoping for more of the same cleverness. As much as I hate to say it, this one almost p...
