Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter and THE Final Destination proved that the LAST film always isn't the last film.

/I know the movie is about the priest's last exorcism but eh.
//Also, The Haunting in Connectiut 2: Ghosts In Georgia? That's another stupid title.

I think every sequel should have the 'Electric Boogaloo' title.

I thought the Last Exorcism was a pleasant surprise. If I recall, it was also the one that used chatroullette effectively as marketing tool.

/Insidious might be the most enjoyable horror movie that's come out in the last few years
 
2013-01-09 05:06:05 PM  
I assume it just meant "last exorcism", as in, you know, the previous one. Since some time has passed, the last one performed is more recent. You know, like "the last time I went to the store".

Ugh, the first one sucked sucked sucked sucked sucked.I posted this in another thread the other day, but we went for the midnight premier since we were dumb enough to buy in to the hype. First, warning flag was when I noticed that the PG-13 rating on the posters walking in to the theater (They kept the movie not rated til they day of release). We proceeded to sit through nothing happening for the next 90 minutes while the crowd started to get visibly agitated.

The boos that followed the credits were deafening. So so awful.

I was pleasantly surprised by it, too. It wasn't splatter gore, but it was genuinely creepy, and had an interesting, reasonably intelligent plot. I expect the sequel to suck, though.

Other than the reasons listed above, i think the biggest reason I didn't like it, is im starting to figure out possession movies just bore me to tears. I have yet to watch one that entertains me in the least, and I think its my lack of religious upbringing thats the reason why. The subject is just lost on me.

Im always suprised at how many people I run in to who liked it, but I dont think, for me, it had a chance from the start.

What are your thoughts on the original Exorcist? I like that one but do not really get scared by it... Probably because it's been aped so much for decades. Liked TLE, didn't like Emily Rose.

Insidious was good for the first 2/3 then it went off the rails a bit. I really enjoyed Sinister, especially the music. Also a weak ending though. Horror movies tend to have those.

Did not like The Exorcist but it was also way before my time and I just got around to watching it a few years ago. I appreciated it for what it did for horror but still wasn't entertained.

Now that I think about Insidious and Sinister thou, they are both possession movies and I enjoyed the hell out of em. I guess it has more to do with the church angle then the possession angle.

Insidious was great but yes, the last 20 mins were a god forsaken trainwreck. Sinister was great from beginning to end. Wish I had seen it in theaters.

Trollin4Colon: Sinister was great from beginning to end. Wish I had seen it in theaters.


We saw it in theaters after it had been out for a few weeks, on a weeknight and there were only 4 other people in the theater - a ~70 year old couple, and two teenage girls. When we first sat down everyone was spread around the theater, but after the first few tape reels were shown the old couple got up and moved to the middle part of the rows near us and the wife had a funny nervous chuckle when she caught our eye as they sat down, she kept muttering "my goodness" after the scary parts. About 10 minutes later those two girls came and sat near the 4 of us too. Audience solidarity in a big empty room like that. It was one of the few movies where the music/footage combo made me feel actual dread when each new tape started, and I wished we were at home so I could pause and think happy thoughts (especially the pool and lawn ones) but I guess that means it was doing its job.

I just think it would've been better to make Mr. Boogie a more direct bad guy to Ethan Hawke and leave the "phantoms" (trying to avoid spoilers) for the an appearance in the finale. Once that nighttime scene took place with them silently running around behind him, it didn't seem quite as threatening I guess. Whereas if they had repeated sightings of Mr. Boogie in Hawke's house at night, like the "edge of the woods" and "back corner of the car garage" bits, I would've shiat myself. My gf doesn't do super well in theatrical horror movies even though she loves them (she always screams at the jumpy bits, along with those teenagers) and she took a couple carefully-timed bathroom breaks. Excellent soundtrack choices from the crew, they really nailed it.

Me walking out of a screening of Sinister: "I'm going to have farked up dreams about this later tonight, aren't I?"

Me waking up from a farked up dream later that night: "Yeah....I knew it."

Sounds like it might just be a religious thing. What did you think of the original Omen? Not a possession movie but certainly heavy on the religion.

Another great thing about Sinister: the character of Deputy "so and so". You think at first that he is going to be the derpy comic relief. Ends up being the most resourceful character in the movie.

*SPOILERS FOR SINISTER*


I thought that scene was a bit unnecessary as well since it really didn't provide anything, especially scares. However, aside from the lawn work scene, the one with the daughter and the "phantom" huddled in the corner of her room was my favorite scene of the movie. Sure, the movie had its bouts of predictability and a few "scares" that made your eyes roll, but Sinister more than delivered with the atmosphere it created.

Yeah they do tend to go over the top in the third act and lose the creepy factor that made the rest of the film work. Sinister was fantastic all the way up to the last 10 minutes.

Riotboy: The Last Exorcism was WEAK.

I'd give is a 6 or 7. The disillusioned minister/exorcist perspective was more interesting than many other genre flicks. The found footage aspect was a neutral element to me. Could have been better, but it was mostly successful, IMHO. Though the sequel looks like it might be a better film, it didn't need a sequel at all.

I'll tell you that Sinister was decent. If I gave The Ring a 10 (only because that's the last movie that made me jump a bit and gave me an uneasy feeling), I'd give Sinister a solid 6.9. If you see it, watch it in a dark room. That helps quite a bit. I'd also recommend Dale and Tucker and Leslie Vernon for laughs and gore, also Stakeland,

A movie no one has mentioned yet is THE REVENANT. Awesome horror film with humor and a bit of political satire and a notable scene where a reanimated head can only talk with a feminine vibrator stimulating the vocal chords.

At the time the original was made, Square was on the verge of going bankrupt and had enough money to produce one final fantasy.

The only demonic possession movies that I ever enjoyed were the Evil Dead movies. They didn't get wrapped up in all sorts of religious stuff and just let the horrors of mind-altering, body-warping possession speak for itself. (Then again, Insidious wasn't too bad, largely because it reminded me so much Lucio Fulci's "Gates of Hell" trilogy.) Usually, if I want a good possession movie, I go for something involving parasites (The Hidden, Slither, etc.).

I saw Evil Dead for the first time ever recently, and while it was creepier than i expected (expected something cheesier, along lines of Night of the Living Dead) I had to turn it of 75% through. The sounds the evil dead made were so gratingly obnoxious to me, especially the woman in the cellar and Ash's girlfriend who looks like a clown when she turns evil. They were constantly squealing or making skwaking noises that, to me, were like nails on a chalkboard. It ruined enjoyment in the scenes for me, I couldn't get past it. I'm thinking of this:
Linda - We're Gonna Get You
I know i'm in the minority but it utterly drove me crazy. Also the tree rape was really bizarre.

Still gonna watch 2 and 3 though, many have highly recommended them.

They get campier and more amusing. The scariness drops off significantly in the second one (which remakes many elements from the first), and third is just a comedy.
