Watched another one of those movies about a small, picture perfect town which comes to grip with an unprovoked menace, complete with an interestingly named character.
I love "Birds"! Seen so many times...
My last film: Shutter Island - great movie.
I watched Psycho last week... masterpiece. Everything about it is fantastic. Even my little sister, so accustomed to the gore of today's horror films, loved it and was genuinely scared in parts. You know, I've seen parts of it countless times but never sat down to watch the entire thing from beginning to end. What struck me the most was the way that Hitchcock's direction looks effortless. And yet, it is full of clever angles, tricks, subtleties. Loved it.
I watched Cabin in the Woods earlier this week. I confess that I'm quite a fan of Joss Whedon because he doesn't take sci-fi too seriously. Although Cabin the Woods is essentially quite bland, parts of the concept were interesting and it salvaged itself by being pretty funny in places. My biggest gripe? They used Marilyn Manson's 'I Put A Spell On You' in the trailer... Whyyyyy oh whyyyyy?? You're making an indirect statement that this will live up to the horrors of Lost Highway (It didn't.)
