saw the original Pet Semetary last night for the first time. I'm sure most here have seen it but if not, spoilers. I didn't know what to expect as I don't really fuck with Stephen King aside from The Shining. I figured it was about killer animals which would have been fine but instead it turned into a killer undead kid film! highlights include the death of said child, every part with Herman Munster, and the undead dead child dying a second time. oh also the spinal meningitis sister. I want to see more films where adorable kids are absolutely wrecked by tractor-trailers!

his kill scene (Herman Munster) is still one of my all time favorite kill scenes

loved Slaughter High as a kid growing up - used to watch it all the time

It's so good and the soundtrack kicks ass.  I'm a sucker for cheesy slashers.  Can't stand the Friday 13th and others of that same.  Give me sleepaway camp any day

Pet Semetary is one of my favorite horror films of the 'classics' in this vein. The sister was played by a man which really boosted the character...maybe a notable actor I forget.

Roadkill: The Last Days of John Martin-  watched it while looking through the Deadbeat at Dawn bd released by Arrow. Gory short film about a beer-swilling murderous cannibal obviously influenced by TCM, it even mimics the music for a few seconds. Also, the trailer for the never-made gore film, Chunk Blower co-written by the late Chas. Balun. Still holds up & looks fun. Too bad it was never made.

That kid wielding the scalpel in P.S. is a riot!

i saw they are re-making pet semetary, blasphemous.

i have always thought a prequel based around fred gwynn's character of judd would be awesome, especially his early life... like who was 'the rag man' who introduced him to the place? have thought about this in detail many times through out life.

Well the remake came out and got mixed reviews and q prequel is in the works so fingers crossed the prequel is actually good.  The mainstream movie market will probably mess it up sadly

Watched David Cronenberg's Spider. Fantastic film highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys psychological films.

Oh, fuck yes! Miranda Richardson just totally stole the show in that one. But excellent all around. Very faithful to the great Patrick McGrath novel on which it's based.

I'm going to hunt down the book.  Hell yeah it did, Ralph was untouchable too, his performance was very moving and unsettling. I had it for months and never watched it and on Sunday I had nothing to do so I sat down and watched and was blown away.

The Dirt - Fun movie, LoC is funnier and the the subject interests me way more (my interest of Mötley Crüe is basically non existent) but is very well done, doesn't take itself seriously and the Jackass director knows how to handle the dirt of it all - actually not THAT dirt I think. I hope these kind of (actually good) band biopics pop up more often now.

LOC was atrocious and I'm not even a huge fan of those bands.  With all the hype I figured the murder and suicide scenes would have been more brutal but in my opinion they were so tame

I thought they were great. They are quite gory for the movie style presented, actually breaking the atmosphere when they come up and not over glorifying it in my opinion (the constrast with the way the movie shows the church burning is pretty cool in my book). The impact for me was in how they were kind of stretched and agonizing instead of "wam bam thank you m'aam", so they work on another level of brutality. I really liked LoC and don't expect people here to get on the van with me but it's mixing of irony/mocking/nostalgia and some true interest and even empathy with the subject was a surprise. As a recreation of the times alone it feels very detailed at least. Not a masterpiece but 4/5.
