I watched "Video Dead" on netflix just recently and deemed it one of the most boring inaccessible films to watch - unless you're doing something else - ever.

Just watched this recently for the first time and couldn't agree more. It's a sad day when that pile gets a better release than The Initiation of Sarah.

On the other hand, also watched Twins of Evil recently and will be getting Synapse's release. Quality Hammer.

Never got around to checking out Spellcaster.

I do like The Video Dead, but I'm surprised that everyone is talking about that and not Bikini Island.

It's an incredibly fun slasher film, and the follow-up Last Dance is even better.

Last Dance was pretty decent. I was surprised to see such a high rating for it on IMDB. I enjoyed the film, but not quite that much, haha.

Spellcaster is not very good. It moves faster than Video Dead, if you're going to complain about such a clever, interestingly genre-bending film. It has some random nobodies (well, they're nobodies to me) and then Bunty Bailey (because it's Empire Pictures and they did Stuart Gordon's Dolls, which she was in) and Richard Blade (who played a VJ in every movie I've seen him in- so I assume he was one in his professional career). And Adam Ant, who's just a lot better here than Thomas Dolby was in Rockula, though that's essentially what he's doing there. But he's only in the movie for about 3 minutes. It's basically a one-by-one movie about people dying in weird ways in a mansion because the Devil is sacrificing people, using their greed against them. Interesting idea, blah execution.

I friggin' love Spellcaster. It may be corny at times, but it's awesome.

No it's not. Maybe if you saw this movie as a kid, you'd be proned to still like it but there's nothing fun or interesting about the story, the characters, or the death scenes. All I can say is that the acting and music are decent. That's not much.

Since it clearly owed quite a bit to Dolls, it's worth mentioning that Dolls is just clearly superior. Monster Dog is better too, which also involves the creepy big house, rock musicians, and freaky deaths.

LOL I just love pretentious, bloated, and long-winded flamers who insist that their opinion is the final word on anything.

I'm sure you and your right hand make a lovely couple.

Quit being such an asshole. People do have other opinions on films rather than your own anal retentive opinions, you know?

And considering some of the super lame films you've admitted to being "masterpieces" on this forum before... just shut up.

Guys, just ignore the obv trolling. You've opened the thread up to five paragraphs on WHY Spellcaster is the worst piece of cinema ever unleashed upon the Charlie Brown-hating public that is American film-goers, and why Puppet Master XII: Puppet Time Forever is a true masterpiece of fiction because of a three second kill that features the special effects of a guy who is credited as "Sr. Grip" in the production credits of a Tales from the Crypt episode.

Wow, 3 replies later and still not one actual opinion from anyone else on the movie in-question.

I'm sure this will only fuel the troll rumors but, are you guys here for drama or actual discussion? You might want to actually contribute something. Unless you've seen or remember the movie, you're wasting everyone's time.

Jesus Christ...

Can you not just learn to keep your fat, opinionated trap shut? Opinions are one thing, but it became obvious a long time ago that you just like to be on the 'other side' for the sake of appearing smarter than you really are.

And I think you should take a look at the actual definition of an internet troll. That term seems to be thrown around way too much lately, often times in defense against anyone who has either:

a) an opinion different from yours
or
b) put you in your rightful place.

Seriously. Shut the fuck up and quit being such a flamey, contradictory little bitch.

Don't worry, he's now on ignore. I've never once placed a user on ignore here in the forum, but his posts are always useless trolling tripe.

He simply cannot even respect other's opinions, and that's just quite sad and pathetic.

I would advise everyone who doesn't like hearing what I have to say to put me on Ignore.

Otherwise, I will say this once more since you seem to have missed it entirely: I'm only interested in discussing the movie.

Yep: I said it because I actually meant it. Shocking, right?
