Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?


« Reply #15 on: October 12, 2010, 07:36:57 AM »

I don't tend to easily scare, but a few movies have done a number on me:

1. As a wee laddie, I recall peeking around the corner into the living room, where The Horror of Party Beach was showing. At that young age, that ridiculous, wienie-mouthed monster scared me. Go figure.

2. The 1956 Invasion of the Body Snatchers scared me as a teenager.

3. A Nightmare on Elm Street left me with a creepy feeling for a while. The sequels, not so much. But the original was an excellent horror movie.

4. While it isn't a horror movie, Lord of the Flies (1963) still scares me. The novel did, too. I don't know exactly why, but just the cruelty and brutality of that story (and the underlying truths about human nature) burrow their way into my psyche and eat away at my faith in humanity (which admittedly isn't very much anyway).

Eat Pray Love. I haven't seen it, but the promos scared the crap out of me. No way I'm seeing that one.

Another one that did it for me was Nightmare Castle from 1965.  The whole movie was seriously disturbing, and the scene where Barbara reveals her true face from underneath her hair scared the living hell out of me. That whole movie was one nasty ride from start to finish.

The Thing ('82)

Event Horizon

Pan's Labyrinth

the first time I saw it, Star Wars freaked me out pretty badly (hey, I was 5 at the time!)

Not a horror movie, but No Country for Old Men genuinely scared me, especially the hotel scene.

Event Horizon broke me.  I used to not be scared of any scary movie!  After I saw Event Horizon, movies that didn't scare me before scare me now!  I'm not even sure why, I suppose it's because Space and Evil are the two scariest things to me, and when you put them together, you've got one scared Paquita!  I don't ever want to see that movie again.

Before that, Night of the Demons was the only movie that could really give me a jolt, but I like that movie because it has boobs, and boobs in a scary movie are kind of like getting a hug after being scared.

Fiend Without A Face was a scary one too...you couldn't see them for one thing, and second, they made that weird noise which was the only indication they were there (aside from knocking things over). This one was pretty good and not for the squeamish. Scared me plenty of times as a kid.

Beyond The Door. The low-light posession scenes, the labored breathing to indicate another presence was in the room, and the infamous..."Whooooo-arreeee-youuuuu" bit.  There was a general feeling of evil to the movie that, despite it's drawn out talkiness in some parts, more than made up for in the possession scenes.
And that face of hers!   Buggedout

Oh heck, let's add Marathon Man for the infamous "is it safe"? scene where Dustin Hoffman got a root canal from the Nazi doctor W\O any anesthetic!!!  Not only did it hurt like hell to watch, but I'm sure it made more than one if us afraid to go to the dentist. I know it did for me....

Pontypool actually freaked me out, the idea of language being a virus that makes you go crazy and the claustrophobic atmosphere really creeped me out Buggedout

This comment on youtube sums it up:
Less about Zombies,more about how the public is affected by the media. of how the media report news and influence us, by repeating and repeating until the public repeat it, how the media build moral panics, and how the power of language and ideas can spread like a virus. That mass media spreads its message like a virus, focuses on the bloody and violent, controls and manipulates us creating mass hysteria, brainwashing us until we repeat what they say without having original thought

In a way, it's also a way to say that the media creates zombies. Sort of...
