i love how horror movies of recent memory have like 10 minute long sex scenes in them.... yeah, we are running from some crazy dude that wants to slice our heads off, but, i still have some time to stick it in this girl i am with.
and the post apocalyptic movies need to stop copying the Mad Max series and Escape from New York. 28 days later did a pretty good job but Doomsday..... holy crap, its like a mix of Beyond Thunderdome and Escape from New York.
haha. you have some good points but idk. First off, its kind of silly to apply this rant to horror movies. I mean, sure you could complain about how older movies were better and now they just seem to constantly pop out crappy sequels and remakes. You could complain about how movies lack any good plots now, are filmed entirely in front of green screens, and how real actors are being replaced by Justin Timberlake and the Rock.
But come on, horror movies have always been cheasy and crappy. No movie buff would be like "friday the 13th, great movie" No, this was a cheap crappy movie with a lame plot, terrible effects (even for the time), and shitty actors meant to scare 11 year olds in the innapropriate theater and preteens on dates. This might be entertaining, but lacks any substance.
How can you even compare those shitty horror movies to M. Knight Shamylan's movies. Sure, the happening was pretty lame. But come on, girl taking out a hair pin and repeatedly stabbing herself in the neck. A bunch of construction workers running off a building. Sounds pretty sick to me. Movie really wasn't that bad. And this was the worst of his movies. The sixth sense, the village, whatever else he did that was good and i can't remember, thats some legit stuff.
However i do agree with you that there are so many shitty horror movies out. Disturbia, this valentine's day slasher movie I see commercials for: obviously thats cheap shit for stupid preteen girls who jump when they see a mouse which is probably smarter than them.
And yea, the exorcist was good.
