    Don't Watch Martyrs

    Seriously, I feel like I had PTSD for a day or two after watching it this weekend. It makes Hostel seem like a Scooby Doo episode. It not only had me on the edge of my seat, and had some really great plot twists, but afterwards it makes you feel existentially horrible and makes you ask questions about humanity you may not want to ask. Unless you really like Norwegian Black Metal or SWANS, this is way too stout for Foo Hearts. I still think of it at night and shudder and not in a fun way like I did with The Ring.

    I'm totally serious. I am a horror movie fan and I wish I had never seen it.


    Siu, you especially don't need to rent this.

    I wonder how many people will watch this, primarily on the basis of your suggestion to not watch this?

    You will despair if you do.


    Look, I am an EMT and I couldn't quit thinking about it, and I don't really dwell on crap from work. <shudder>


    But if people go see it because of me and it traumatizes them, this will give me lulz too.

    It can't be worse then coming to an accident scene to find some guy still alive but disemboweled.

    I've never forgotten the the final scene from Looking For Mr. Goodbar. All that stabbing and humping and the air sucking sounds and the strobe light.

    I've added it to my Netflix queue. It can't be much worse than À l'intérieur.

    I really don't like its premise, from what the summary said. Yecch.

    Its not making my Netflix queue anytime soon. I'd rather grab another Phantasm sequel than that.

    Specific points of the movie sound pretty gruesome, but the underlying premise has some promise. Japan's "super-gusher" slasher has been done out (and I never saw one with a solid story), and I never appreciated the Japanese "suspenseful" slashers. Where the Japanese horror industry has failed for me, France has picked up and run with it. À l'intérieur, Frontière(s), and now this one.

    The part of me that likes SWANS and HR Giger really enjoyed it. Also, the makeup effects artist committed suicide right after filming wrapped. (True. Not saying there's a correlation, just sayin'.)

    Depressed me for two days, though.

    I never considered watching it. Don't understand why anyone would like gory/slasher movies.

    there must be something wrong with you... having any hopes in japanese live action films

    the really good creative power in japan went into books and animation.

    higurashi is a good example. originally a visual novel made into TV series.

    You will despair. I will only maintain my current state of mind.

    Because you suggested I don't rent it, I went and googled the story line and looked at some trailers for it.

    I'm kind of curious but I think I'll pass. Thanks for the warning.

    well okay, there were (past tense) some really good directors and movies, but a vast majority of them are just terrible. There's just that low budget feel and no attempts to cover it with creative camera work . Even the ones with relatively high budgets have a cheap feel to them through poor script, poor acting and monotonic camera work.

    what's really despairing about japanese live action is the quality of other forms of media offer.
    theatres, novels, comics and animation are all heads and heels above live action movies, but when those are remade into live action movies and dramas, they just wind up as garbage.


    in fact, I'd like to see a good modern japanese movie for once.

    for now I get my kicks from HK horror movies.

    Have you seen Dai-Nipponjin yet? I've been really curious about this for a couple years because I like Heyx3 and all, and i saw it's out in the USA as Big Man Japan but it never made it to Blockbuster.

    I will now download and traumatize myself with this, and then blame everybody here
    for using some kind of mind-controlling reverse-psychology Jedi mind-f*** on me.
