I was waiting for Gebre to attempt to loot our candy baskets before posting this, but someone beat him to it, so:

Recommendations or just whatever you think rings in the season movie / TVwise.

I'll start first.

Since I am starting a Kubrickfest of sorts, The Shining will be shown.

And I will likely watch the original Let the Right One In. (It's been sitting around and I haven't seen it since the big screen. Great film.)

And I have to say that I first saw:



was during last time I did a pyschotropic  and it was on the big screen (or was it Lost Highway, who can remember such things?anyway) I used to watch above pretty regularly around Halloween.

Spamming this space with every horror film is verboten! Now, biro can enjoy doing so in *'s stead since I have disallowed it.

Looking for recommendations, oh and I can't stand torture pr0n.

Psycho might happen as well.

Are you being serious?

Underrated.


An alltime B-Movie classic and my favorite Carpenter film.

Also it is more of a mood film and subtlety than anything else. And I really like horror films like that. It's kinda why I gravitate to Lynch a lot, dude works with mood brilliantly.

Good question. Haven't really decided much yet, but looking at Netflix's thriller page (I'm not sure if all of them are really thrillers ... how did War Games and The Score get on there?) a couple caught my attention:
- Memento (never completely saw)
- Along Came a Spider (never saw)
- Vanilla Sky (never saw)
- Clue (saw and might recommend to others)
- Sleeping With the Enemy (saw and might recommend to others)
- The Raven (about Poe; never heard of it before)

Achronos,

Check out Dead Alive if you want to see post-Freudian examination of the death drive. It's in the vocabulary of a lot of Australian / New Zealand film that doesn't attempt to mock Hollywood. Think, Baz Luhrman.

Jackson should have stuck with this sorta work instead of the garbage he decided to unleash upon the world.

I'm gonna go back to this...last time I saw it was before I had started reading Freud. I just have to find some Republicans to watch it with, if possible.

A lot of ink has been spilled over Zombies and their relationship to the death drive or id. I think knowing Freud's later writing well enough on this stuff (The Economy of Masochism for instance) is enough to make the analytical leaps to the so-called post-Freudian stuff (Lacan for example).

Just attempt to keep in mind that Freud first and foremost wanted to be a philosopher and sorta took a more ontological rather than economical approach in later work, personally I think the title of the work I named above is rife with irony.

The death drive ends up having a sorta ontological priority to the libido, life force, whatever you want to call it.

I think Jackson wanted to send up Oedipus in a big way and like most folks mocking Freud in good or bad taste, he ends up making a stronger argument for Freud's understanding of the structure of psychic being and arguably its economy.

One of these days I'm going to find out why Jackson was chosen to helm the LOTR trilogy, because there is no way based on his past films he was heading in that direction. Maybe it truly is the $$$ but I want to believe it is something different.

On topic, I've thought about watching a horror movie per day this month.

I've been reading "Beyond the Pleasure Principle" off and on.

I figure I try to tackle Freud before moving onto Lacan. The death drive is interesting to me.

I've only seen two of them (I and VI), and I didn't think they were very good.  And I don't have a problem with grotesque human butchering.  Generally, I don't recommend these movies, but certainly not if you have a problem with that kind of violence.

I like Bride of Frankenstein the best of that bunch. Great images and atmosphere. I also enjoy the Hammer films though they are uber-schlocky. Frankenstein Must be Destroyed is particularly nice. And my favorite Hammer film is probably The Plague of Zombies.

But dude that's why I loved it, the acting was so bad. The black dude in that film totally made it for me. The most serious performance in cinema history.

But yeah it had some fantastic ideas.

Can you believe they only used one room to film the entire thing? You would never have known.

Alien is a great horror movie, and I seem to watch it always around Halloween.

It's really nothing like Lovecraft.

That said, Lovecraft is great and you have no business turning away from him, unless it's to avert your eyes from an overwhelming sense of your own insignificance in the face of indifferent and hostile cosmic forces.

Gebre, how are you accessing Netflix? There interface, like most sites, has gone downhill as everyone has decided a computer should act like a tablet or smartphone.

There are some better ways to deal with your queue and certainly to know what's available for streaming, which I think is how you access netflix, I still keep a DVD account to get access to stuff that isn't streaming.

If you are happy with your methods, awesome. Otherwise I think Achronos and I could give you a handful of alternatives. to maximizing your experience. But you seem like a healthy satisficer rather a neurotic like we are.

I always like A Haunting. But alas, it's not on TV anymore and I can't find it on Netflix.

Hey, I'm open to suggestions. We had to cut our cable down to basic, but we still get Netflix. Lots of good stuff on Netflix, but forget about finding anything like Nights in Cabiria.
