Just rewatched seasons 1-5 of this last month. Way too much nostalgia. Seasons 6 & 7 are trash though, they're from when they tried to resurrect the show 2 years after it went off-air.



Are you talking Tales or Are you Afraid?

Agreed. Tales also had 7 seasons and the last two seasons sucked when they started shooting in the UK.

SARDO! No mister, accent on the do...! Yeah that show was great.

I managed to get a hold of Dellamorte Dellamore (Cemetery Man) from 1994. It might be the last movie I can watch before the end of the year so I hope it's as weird as they say.

I was doing a comparison film week. I chose Heat vs The Dark Knight. Christopher Nolan has been very vocal about his major influence from Heat and how he was trying to recapture that in TDK, and you can completely tell. The opening bank robbing scene even has William Fichtner, a cool nod, and various scenes in the movie are almost dead on from Heat. Nothing will ever top the shoot-out scene in Heat, the best in movie history (to me), but TDK does a good job of at least trying to capture that vibe and letting the villain lead the story with good character development. Heat is the superior movie by miles.

So true! I watch Heat at least once a year.

Watching Heat now while tidying up the living room. Seeing the beautiful beach shots reminds me of Mann’s Manhunter. I definitely would like to hear from you folks about Manhunter VS Silence of the Lambs thoughts.

For me Silence was powerful due mostly in part to to the brilliance of Anthony Hopkins but Manhunter is certainly a more attractive looking film. I personally like both but prefer Silence, however I do appreciate Brian Cox’s interpretation of Hannibal Lector.

Also, BONUS points if any of you can tell me which game Brian Cox plays as a dirty snuff director that pays gang members to try and murder you on film Twisted Evil

You mean Manhunt? I played it a long time ago, but I don't think I ever finished it. If I don't remember it wrong, it gets pretty repetitive.

Yup thats it! Game gets pretty gross, has a brutal end. Graphics dont hold up too well but its worth the download if you have a PS4.

I remember playing that on the original Xbox. It made good use of the original voice communication device, you could yell to attract enemies. I can't remember much else other than it was pretty brutal for the time.

The best horror movie of the '90s perhaps?

I actually found it quite overrated. It's weird and unique, sure, but also pretty sloppy and not entierly successful. Felt like a wasted oportunity to me.
Here's a few that I consider better:
In The Mouth Of Madness, which was being discussed a few posts back, while it's not one of Carpenter's best it's certainly way better than Dellamorte...
Clive Barker's Lord Of Illusions. I recently re-watched it after many years and it's very good as well. Really underrated film.
Peter Jackson's Braindead.
Army of Darkness.
Alex De La Iglesia's Day of the Beast.
Exorcist III also came out in 1990.
And there are some other more arguable ones, including Soavi's own La Setta, which was less ambitious than Dellamorte but also more successful at what it attempted to do, for my taste.

There were still quite a few decent horror films in the 90s. When shit really hit the fan was in the 00s. That was probably the worst decade for horror films in the whole history of the medium.
