HORRORCRAM XIV: DaMU you all to Hell (General Discussion)
Takoma1While it is 90% garbage, I did like the super-weird tone of the Lucky McKee one (the couple where the wife is a witch) and I genuinely dug the one with the two couples being terrorized by the kids in costumes ("Happy Halloween you f*cking psycho!").

Takoma1DeschainJust watched Crush the Skull, which was delightful. It's like Don't Breathe but actually good. Much funnier than I expected and the cast is charming and fun. perfect Halloween fodder.DeschainJust watched It Stains the Sands Red about a woman being chased through the desert by a zombie. Overall it wasn't bad. It has a '70s grindhouse sleaze to it that may turn some off. It certainly wasn't without some stupid moments but a decent watch.You and I are totally sympatico right now.First, I'm really glad you liked Crush the Skull. Most horror-comedies are nowhere near as funny as they think they are, but this one is much better than most. And I love the opening scene, which is both disturbing and hilarious.Second, I also just watched It Stains the Sands Red last night! I liked it a ton more than I thought I would. I loved that the trajectory of the movie is essentially this woman projecting her feelings about herself and the people around her onto this mindless monster (and the monstrosity of the zombie works in nice contrast to the monstrosity of others encountered during the film). I know this is something most people in this thread can only conceptualize, but the idea of walking through the desert while on your period and with no pads/tampons/cups is so horrifying that it literally made me feel sick. Like, I had an easier time handling the finger amputation than I did handling the idea of two days of bleeding into the same pair of pants. I also respect the movie for sticking the ending in a way that was neither overly bleak nor unrealistically chipper.And you all are making me very happy with your love for Society. If you have the chance to get it on DVD, I'd also recommend the director's commentary.

last splashBeing as I have not found a copy I can't watch Crush the Skull but I thought Don't Breathe was a pleasant surprise especially the ending with the dog. Awesome.
