It's the battle of the invading spirits poll. Cast your vote!
haven't seen audrey rose in a long time, and i dont remember much...which leads me to believe it was dull. watched shock for the first time a few years back when i was collecting bava. not as good as a lot of his earlier stuff, but still an effective 70's italian horror film. so it gets my vote. truth be told, id have a hard time voting against bava in any poll.
I havent seen either...!!!!
I don't understand why Shock gets so much flak. It has a fucking astounding soundtrack, and a great performance by Nicoldi. And one damned creepy kid. I love it. And the final act in the basement is pretty dark. Sure, it's no Black Sunday, but it's still a great flick.
Shock is awesome. John Steiner and Ivan Rassimov!
Shock has a lot of style to it, especially one very effective in-camera visual shot.
Audrey Rose on the other hand is very slow-paced, and that spoils the overall film sonewhat. It really plays far more like a dramatic TV film than a theatrical film.
Shock gets my vote out of the two.
I thought Audrey Rose was just about as interesting as a wet fart...The fart would be the scarier of the two, actually.
Shock is the much better film IMO
A post of the cool cover of the novel The Majorettes in a different thread sent me off looking at vintage horror novel covers. and i stumbled upon this....
Fuck, now I want to watch both of these.
Audrey Rose falls apart after the stellar first half, so my vote goes to Shock.
Shock is great - pleasant surprise for flick I'd never heard of until recently.
I was also blown away by Shock when I actually sat through the entire thing. I tried it years before on Netflix and stopped after the flying razor / brick wall scene about 40 minutes in. But, if you watch the entire thing in 1 bite... holy cow is it effective.
I admittedly haven't seen either
But now I gotta see what that flying razor / brick wall scene is about
There's a scene in Shock that I think rivals the jump scare in Exorcist III in terms of effectiveness. It's a remarkably solid little movie.
I haven't seen Shock yet - but I see Amazon Prime has it so added to my watch list
Where Shock seriously cooks is the last 45 or so minutes. Which does that thing where when you get there, you start remembering the whole film as pretty solid. Even though there were scenes so silly, you were shaking your head before.
I'm curious, do you know what year that edition of the novel was released in ?
not a clue.
According to the American Book Exchange (ABE), first year of publication on the Popular Library label was 1962. It was republished again in 1971 with the same cover, and again in 1982. Hard to say exactly which one it is, but its most likely either the 62 or 71 printing.
