An animated film called Where The Dead Go To Die.

It's a horror film and it was made almost entirely by one guy. It's... not great. It's weird, ugly and extreme. Like a death-metal LSD trip nightmare. It's messed up to the point of being funny at times, but becomes more and more genuinely disturbing as it goes along. I'm not sure if I'd recommend it, I love it but you need to be a certain kind of person to enjoy it.

I'm no fan of watching films, but I've read about a horror film called Await Further Instructions recently. Upon first reading a summary, it deeply unsettled me.

Basically, a black wire entity covers an entire house perimeter in itself, giving a dysfunctional family increasingly unsettling instructions (from things like 'there's a pathogen in the food, throw it away' to 'one of you has the pathogen' to 'one of you is a sleeper agent' to 'I am god, give me a sacrifice' with varying instructions inbetween) and bad things happen. It appears to get what it wants depending on whether you think it's doing a psychological experiment or it has a god complex.

Here's a YouTube video reviewing it: link

I saw "The Color Out of Space" the other night, a movie based on the Lovecraft story of the same name. The story was a lot better. The film was appallingly bad. I began fast-forwarding after an hour, then I just quit watching. Poor Lovecraft.


Why is it that almost all Lovecraft adaptations are atrocious? There worse than B horror movies, those are least good for a laugh. I'm not sure why no one seems to be able to adapt his stuff properly.


I know, I’ve heard good things about From Beyond (if I recall correctly) and Re-Animator is supposedly good if you like comedy with your horror (which I don’t), but that’s all I’m aware of :(

I watched Eraserhead a while ago, I couldn’t really enjoy it because I just felt so bad for the baby :(

My go-to “WTF” movie is Tetsuo: The Iron Man. I honestly can’t decide if I like it or not but sometimes just get the compulsion to watch it.

Elephants Dream

Animated short film from 2006. A dutch production made using blender. It's got a relatively simple message and theme wrapped up in... weirdness. It's creepy and odd, the animation hasen't aged well at all. It's in english but the voice actors are all dutch and their accents are terrible. Still a fun watch if you like odd stuff.

The whole thing's on youtube for free.

I can't remember exactly why, but that movie bummed me out for days after I saw it, and it was a long time before I could hear that Buggles song without getting depressed.

My offering is Gerry - an obscure Gus Van Sant movie with Matt Damon and Casey Affleck. Essentially two guys go for a walk in the desert - that's it, that's about all that happens. It's all lingering shots and shuffling feet noises. I loved it. So little happens for so long that when something (small) does happen it almost feels like an action sequence.

Deep Throat Part II (Chill! It's only rated: R)


Well, technically we only watched part of it. By mutual consent we decided to switch to something better.
