Outstanding. Like some dark and sinister take on the Bugs Bunny/Yosemite Sam up and down the basement stairs skit.

Holy crap, that might actually give me nightmares.
Old People - 2014-10-13
Man, in my 34 years I have had people try to kill me on two continents, seen dozens of fresh corpses in hideous condition, and walked into burning buildings thinking I was probably not coming out, and this type of shit still scares me worse than any of that. I am going to die of heart disease or cancer, but do I worry about that stuff? No, I have nightmares about things like the one in this film.
I will go to my grave a frightened child.

I was traumatized as a child by the original black and white The Haunting. The breathing walls and doors kept me up at night for decades. I can still see them, as well as the half of dozen times I thought my own walls were breathing, whenever I close my eyes.

The first one that really got to me was the original "The House on Haunted Hill" with Vincent Price.

When the secretary stands up and the "ghost" is only inches away from her, I think my heart actually stopped.

Adham Nu'man - 2014-10-13

Actually, to be honest, as a kid I was terrified to sleepless nights by Trilogy of Terror's little Zuni doll going AYAYAYAYAYAYA!

Old People - 2014-10-13
What I don't understand about y'all is why you don't call "bouncer" on me. I talk all this shit about where I've been and what I've done (because honest to god this is my outlet) and don't none of y'all say shit.
I'd put just about everybody talkative on this site in the 120-160 IQ range, so how come nobody just says that I'm not a vet/PMC/firefighter, and that I'm just another anime-addicted eunuch?
Step up, damn you, I'm sleep-deprived and drunk on diphenhydramine.

Adham Nu'man - 2014-10-13
I don't know, I'm pretty stupid so I believed you.

M-DEEM - 2014-10-14
Oh, dog. If you want some action 'round here talk about what cartoons you thump your bag to, what guns you own, that you don't hate yourself(if you're white), cats n' shit.

Don't be a guy that's actually done a thing or two.

memedumpster - 2014-10-14
It's Infinite Zest's fault, man, his stories are so incredibly outrageous (he's lived in six places at the same time, gone to four different highschools simultaneously, and knows everyone in music/theater/movies from 1976 to 2197, I used to try and keep a timeline of his life but gave right up when I realized that even a TARDIS wouldn't make it make sense) that everything you say seems plausible.

I guess it comes down to the fact that I like you, because you remind me of a lot of soldiers I've known who weren't completely stupid. Even when you want to oppress the juggalos, I know you don't really, you just want to free yourself.

Besides, it's more fun to talk about what we all like, like how that Zuni Fetish Doll also fucking gave me nightmares. I can still see it holding that knife! Also, long before Christine was even an idea to rip off, there was... THE CAR. My god, THE CAR.

memedumpster - 2014-10-14
Also, you're 34 and call yourself OldPeople, and that's just adorable on a website where the average age is 73 (which will go up to 98 once EvilHomer goes to reddit).

Robin Kestrel - 2014-10-14
Also, most of the people who liked to start flame wars are on their own site now. We're a pretty mellow bunch, the PoE News remnants.

Old People - 2014-10-17
Ha! Thanks for the kind words, meme.
I always assumed I was one of the older poetv people, and that plus my fear and loathing of senescence made me choose the name (also, I like it because it lends itself to jokes).
But yeah, I haven't actually told any lies on this site. I love the anonymity for that very reason; you can be yourself and have a nerdy sense of humor and not have to try to impress people, none of which is possible in most of my work environments.

Old People - 2014-10-17
Also, just started watching THE CAR with my new fuck-buddy as a sort of litmus test to she if she's cool. It looks like it's gonna be incredibly 70s, which is right up my alley, and does appear to be the sort of film that would have added a vehicular category of terrors to my rich childhood avoidable-trauma repertoire.

Binro the Heretic - 2014-10-13
It's good, but it's kind of a distillation of the modern approach to horror:

1 - Isolation

2 - Jump scares

3 - Unstoppable supernatural force

I miss the old horror flicks like "The Omen", "Poltergeist", Cronenberg's "The Fly" and "The Prince of Darkness".

Yeah, I know. I'm an old fart.
Adham Nu'man - 2014-10-13
My favorite unconventional horror terrifying moment is that scene from Lost Highway (which I don't even consider one of Lynch's best films) when the Mystery Man shows up.

Binro the Heretic - 2014-10-13
You mean Robert Blake telling the guy "I'm in your house right now."?

The Great Hippo - 2014-10-13
My favorite unconventional horror scene is the homeless person behind the dumpster (the nightmare bit) -- I can't remember the movie, but it's another Lynch one.

It's great, because it's so subdued, and when the 'jump' happens, the sound actually gets softer rather than louder -- Lynch is really great at freaking me out in ways I did not expect to be freaked out.

M-DEEM - 2014-10-13
That's actually the one I was gonna say. Mullholland Dr. The lead up, the jump, the sound, the guy's reaction. Great stuff and scared the crap outta me.


Adham Nu'man - 2014-10-13
Yes, Robert Blake. That was fucking terrifying in a whole different way than I'm used to experience.

Adham Nu'man - 2014-10-13
That was great too. AND the Cowboy's very simple, subdued threats.

M-DEEM - 2014-10-13
Oh hell yeah, the one time two times thing always stuck with me too.

Nominal - 2014-10-13
Yeah it was a good build up, but the entire time I was thinking, "It's going to end with a jump cut to a creepy After Effects face, isn't it?"

That's pretty much all internet horror shorts these days.

Innocent Bystander - 2014-10-14
While agree with you on modern tropes, I have had it with these motherfucking people reminiscing on this motherfucking internet.

"DAE remember le aweseome 90's horror movies"?

memedumpster - 2014-10-14
Dude, I'm up there talking about THE CAR and you say these movies make you old. The Prince of Darkness rocked, I don't care who doesn't like it.

Robin Kestrel - 2014-10-13
If The Grudge has taught us anything, it's that hiding under the covers doesn't work.
Nominal - 2014-10-14
If The Grudge has taught us anything, it's that nothing works.

Binro the Heretic - 2014-10-14
I guess that's my biggest problem with a lot of the recent horror movies. If there's no hope of stopping the monster or at least escaping it, then you're just waiting for all the characters to die.

True, my generation had stuff like the "Friday the 13th", "Halloween" and "A Nightmare on Elm Street" franchises, but it took three or four sequels for the monster to become utterly unstoppable. At least the characters were in there with a shot at survival.

Nominal - 2014-10-14
In addition to the fact that there wasn't any kind of reasoning or even pathos to the ghosts in Grudge. Usually a good haunting story involves some kind of transgression by the characters or life event the ghost is trying to bring to light.

The Grudge? "Everyone who walked into a house will definitely die at some point." Except for the people who never went to the house, they die too. Oh and sometimes turning away from the ghost will cause it to disappear.

There doesn't have to be hard rules chiseled into stone for a ghost story to work, but you have to at least FEEL like there's something at work other than a supernatural snuff film where the plot is so pointless that you could literally rearrange the scenes in random order and it wouldn't matter.

The Great Hippo - 2014-10-14
On one hand, I really do enjoy Lovecraftian horror, which is very much 'Everyone is doomed before they start, nothing you can do will save you' -- there's something very humbling and terrifying about a force against which there can ultimately be no recourse. You are at the mercy of forces so vast and powerful they scarcely acknowledge you exist.

On the other hand, yeah -- horror with no sense of rules -- no narrative, beyond 'Everyone is going to be killed in a really scary way and you'll never understand why' -- is boring. I bet there's ways to do it that's interesting (I'm struggling to think of an example), but the Grudge definitely wasn't one of them.

Nominal - 2014-10-14
Even Lovecraft wasn't as futile. The characters at least had a chance to ruin cultist plans or keep the ancient evil from waking up. Even if it ultimately doomed them. Sometimes "defeat" meant they ascended to a whole new plane of consciousness.

The Grudge was more than futile; it was pointless. "You mean I'm doomed to die no matter what because I'm a coworker of someone who walked into a house? What the hell, ghost?"

Anagramother - 2014-10-13
What kind of non-euclidean power strip is that?!?
Old People - 2014-10-13
Looks like some sort of barbarian European shit; output's probably around 3000 Kiloteslas or whatever. Enough to power a whelk-scalder or char your todger.

Innocent Bystander - 2014-10-14
Oh, you're gonna start some shit on outlets you three-pronged motherfucker?

Robin Kestrel - 2014-10-14
I thought the most messed up part of the Grudge is the entity pursuing the sister to her office and then to her apartment.

Was the sister ever even in the cursed house, or is this thing just so pissed off it'll go through your cellphone records and kill any relatives you called?

Robin Kestrel - 2014-10-14
Crap. ^ meant as a reply to the thread above, obv.

Oscar Wildcat - 2014-10-14
Yes! The reveal of the power strip shook me to my very core. Plus there was that silly gremlin. But fuck me, that power strip...

Nominal - 2014-10-15
I think the sister entered the house?

Ted Raimi definitely didn't though.

A lot of people defend the pointlessness as breaking new ground for ghost stories, but judging how the ending is straight out of a Friday the 13th flick I think it's safe to say it was awful writing.

Good visuals and sound though!

Old People - 2014-10-17
Ju-On. Apply directly to the Jew!

Old People - 2014-10-17
Oops. Me too, Robin.

Jet Bin Fever - 2014-10-14
Spoiler: She got an abortion years ago and the ghost of her fetus is stalking her because she hasn't repented for the mortal sin of abortion.
Oscar Wildcat - 2014-10-14
Well it looks a lot like Chaka the Pakuni.

Jet Bin Fever - 2014-10-14
What a twist!

Adham Nu'man - 2014-10-15

Jet Bin Fever - 2014-10-15
The monster is really just a batch of sentient moss.

Robin Kestrel - 2014-10-15
That's the morel to the story. (Brian W. Aldiss shout-out, yo)

That that movie was so sporing.
