Has to be the most horrible thing I have ever seen. Do not watch if you are easily disturbed!

I had to turn it off!
Plus the fact that it had a baby in didn't help....that was a little close to the mark

wow how can you not like 'pulp fiction' etc. i watched 'swimming with sharks' last week too that was pretty nasty, but good. audition was on at the weekend i could not watch that again argh

ok sparkly, i'll borrow it but dunno if i will watch it.

i stuill havent gtoon round to watching the skeleton key yet

Saturn74 · 29/08/2006 11:38

Seems like a bit of a weak plot line too ! Why would monstrous, deformed cannibals bother kidnapping the baby? Unless they planned to save it for a snack at elevenses?

expatinscotland · 29/08/2006 11:38

Cuz it was stupid.

I mean, all his films are is a bunch of silly violence.

BFD.

Yawn.

He's a sicko, IMO.

misdee · 29/08/2006 11:39

maybe they cant reproduce?

nailpolish · 29/08/2006 11:56

expat i agree

i actually thought they werent allowed to do that sort of thing to children

i suppose the sort of person who puts their child up for these roles is a money and fame hungry person

nailpolish · 29/08/2006 11:57

the skeleton key is BRILLIANT btw

DetentionGrrrl · 29/08/2006 12:04

I have to say i'm amazed how many people have such contempt for horror films on here. As for the children starring in them- the vast majority of the language, blood, sound effects etc is added afterwards, and the children aren't allowed 'on set' for anything like a rape scene for example. They don't see what 'we' see as the final product- if you see any 'making of...' documentaries, you'll see that on set, it's all very tame compared to the end result. I love horrors, and find them much less disturbing than something like Schindler's List- and nobody wants that banned.

nailpolish · 29/08/2006 12:05

but schindlers list is real life

DetentionGrrrl · 29/08/2006 12:06

Exactly- horror is pure fantasy, and as such doesn't bother me. The real life stuff- now that's upsetting.

southeastastra · 29/08/2006 12:08

i agree and have quite a high horror tolerance but don't really like slasher, bloody, boringly written films. i found 'downfall' to be one of the most disturbing films i have seen.

fattiemumma · 29/08/2006 12:11

but i would watch something like Schindler or silence of the lambs becasue you actually need to follow the storyline, to use some part of your brain function.

horror films are just gore and blood, lots of screaming and a crap storyline about a madman who is usualy indestructable.

i enjoy thrillers, or where there is a clever plot twist like in Saw. i also watched THE VILLAGE recently. wasn't exstatic about the film itself but thought the twist was clever.

nailpolish · 29/08/2006 12:11

well, i dont mind horror, as long as it doesnt involve children

nailpolish · 29/08/2006 12:12

SAW and SAW 2 are excellent

Saturn74 · 29/08/2006 12:12

I really liked 'The Village'. Great script and intriguing storyline.

Saturn74 · 29/08/2006 12:14

I'm the same as you, NP. I am fully aware that these films are directed so that the children acting in them don't know what's really happening, but I find films like 'Poltergeist' really disturbing.

southeastastra · 29/08/2006 12:15

i really liked the village too, thought it was quite scary.

cupcakes · 29/08/2006 12:17

I thought horror had all but vanished from the mainstream in the eighties and now it's everywhere again.
I hate horror. Can't see why the world needs any more nastiness added to it.
Really, what is the point??

nailpolish · 29/08/2006 12:18

does 'The Sixth Sense' count? because that is one of my favourite films ever

the little boy, i read recently, is now 18 in real life and has been in trouble with the police, drink driving etc

i nearly fell off my chair when i read he was 18

Saturn74 · 29/08/2006 12:21

No, I really like 'The Sixth Sense'. It's the ones where they have children singing nursery rhymes in spooky voices as a soundtrack that I don't like!

southeastastra · 29/08/2006 12:22

no horror (or rather good horror) is very hard to find! sixth sense is good.

thinking about children in films made me think about heather o'rouke from poltergiest

the boy from sixth sense has been in alot since that film, they always seen to get mixed up in trouble, like drew barrymore, must be something to do with hollywood

expatinscotland · 29/08/2006 12:22

Exactly, cupcakes.

waterfalls · 29/08/2006 12:22

I love ghostly films, the Grudge was pretty good, and whats that one called with Nocole Kidman living in a big house with her children, and she hires some servants?

cupcakes · 29/08/2006 12:22

I don't count the Sixth Sense as horror - it is scary and tense but
a) it isn't gory or sick for the sake of being sick
b) it has a plot

Saturn74 · 29/08/2006 12:23

'The Others' - love that one!
