Which one of these low rated IMDb movies are highly regarded by you?
I went with Final Exam. Only felt a little guilty about that one.
I rather like Final Exam, no guilt. The real guilty pleasure for me here is The Creature Wasn't Nice, at least for the musical numbers.
Went with Night School. It falls pretty flat as a slasher but I did find the killer (and Brad Fiedel's accompanying score) to be pretty menacing.
Saturday the 14th.
Went with Piranha Part Two: The Spawning.
Great White. It remade Jaws and remade it better.
Guess I'll go with Final Exam,, followed by Don't Go in the Woods and Scream.
I hated final exam the first time I rented it in the summer of 1990, by this point, it was and really looked dated. But in 1995 I watched it on Cinemax and saw it in a whole new way. I payed attention to some of the camera angles and creepiness now I like it a lot better..
Here again. No mention for The Howling.
The Howling is an excellent film. Why would anyone consider it a guilty pleasure?
Yeah I liked the howling..
Dawn Of The Mummy for me. A terrible movie true but one that I strangely enjoy. Zombie Lake has to be the worst zombie flick ever.
Quite a few here I haven't seen, but Night School, from what I remember, was very good. Highly underrated.
Great White, followed by The Nesting, & Saturday the 14th.
I'm pretty sure that's because The Howling is so highly regarded. It may not be an incredible film, but it's definitely not trash either.
It took me a long time to see it, but The Howling is indeed an incredible film. It's just hard to pinpoint exactly what makes it so fascinating. Other than the cinematography, which Joe Dante described as "like Japanese paintings." And Pino Donaggio's score, which I still say is his best work in the genre. People do not give it the credit it deserves as a cultural satire. For one. Though its meat there should be obvious from watching it (it talks trendy religions, sociology, the cynicism of television media, the cynicism of television audiences, psychotherapy gimmicks, and quite a bit more). It's an extremely well-made film about something and it has the atmospheric chops to be a haunting experience. What else do you need to be a great horror film?
Piranha 2, flying piranhas are the shit ! Followed closely by Great White, which really deserves a proper release.
Some real fun slashers in this year. Night School has really stuck with me, just love the look and sound in that movie. Seeing severed heads popping up everywhere is pretty awesome. Scream is the kind of movie you'll never forget but wish you did. I still laugh about it in hindsight, though. Went with Final Exam ultimately...respect the Radish.
