Ooo I didnt know Saw was on.

I am doing exactly the same!

Why do people want to watch torture and general horribleness???

DH watched all of the DVD's last week ready for the new one coming out - he's at the cinema now watching it - load of crap if you ask me hmm

2shoes I have issued warnings. I told him he will be haunted by images that WILL NEVER leave him. He grinned. fool.

I am going to go on msn and MN and hide behind my laptop screen's safety.

YANBU.dp is trying to persuade me to watch it.I don't do grim torture bloodfest movies.He says it was to get me back after I got Cloverfield out on DVD,which was,admittedly one of the crappest ,ovies I have ever seen.

God, it is grim isn't it?
I made dh take me to the cinema to see it!
Can't watch it now - too gory.

I would be pretty worried if my dh wanted to watch people being hurt for fun. I honesty think that films like this are a sign of something bad happening to our society.

....I thought only pimply 14 year olds watched the 'Saw' films.

...they are, so far as I can ascertain, formulaic and devoid of merit.

I'm reminded of secondary school, where tatty copies of James Herbert books were surrupticiously swapped (and fell open at the dirty and/or gory bits..)

blossomsmine Sat 25-Oct-08 22:36:41

Yeah, i am hiding in the kitchen!! My dd (15) loves these films too shock she is waiting to see the new one that has just come out................ I would be traumatised!!!

ToThrottleABlackBird Sat 25-Oct-08 22:37:17

Oh dear sad like I said, It is only a film hmm

S1ur Sat 25-Oct-08 22:38:42

RG shock I can assure you I am not married to a fourteen year old!!!


nope he has proper man stubble and everfin'

DH is watching it in the lounge, I'm safe in the kitchen watching XFactor. DH tried to convince me it's a 'good' gory movie, has 4 stars in the Radio Times and everything......

nah, will stick with MN and Xfactor smile

S1ur Sat 25-Oct-08 22:40:03


naaaaah, I don't think so! but I do retain imagery very well and it 'stays' with me, which is why I choose not to add to the scary stuff in my head already.

retiredgoth Sat 25-Oct-08 22:41:43

...can you ask him if he has any old James Herbert books?

(and if so, may I borrow them. Ahem)

S1ur Sat 25-Oct-08 22:42:32

I believe he has many comics, oh no sorry graphic novels hmm if that helps?

retiredgoth Sat 25-Oct-08 22:44:22

...never quite 'got' graphic novels I must confess.

...fond of the Beano, though.

S1ur Sat 25-Oct-08 23:35:31

well, good lord it has made DH actually gasp a bit and almost cover his eyes. I am vindicated.

ladymariner Sat 25-Oct-08 23:38:53

My best friend loves these films, she likes anything gory. I love things like dirty dancing, mama mia, love actually etc.

Opposites attract grin

S1ur Sat 25-Oct-08 23:44:03

well he gave thumbs up, apparently so good he is lining up next one

mooog Sat 25-Oct-08 23:46:59

Ive set the timer to record saw2 tomorrow. Tbh, I did not find it scary. The film on bbc1 looks like it has been quite scary though!
