@Ren - Start with their books. Poppy Z. has done some new Lovecraftian inspired stories that stand up to the originals. They're not the usual pastiches either. They do interesting things with Lovecraft's concepts. But they're fully modern treatments. Beyond that, all her(?) stuff is good. Excellent writer. Probably the best thing currently going for modern horror.

Tom Ligotti's stuff is flat-out surreal, to say nothing of eerie and weird. He'll take a simple event or phenomena and spin it into something beyond sinister at the drop of a hat. His appropriately named The Nightmare Factory is a good starting anthology.

Matheson is famous for the Twilight Zone episode Nightmare at 20,000 Feet.. (That's the one with the airliner and the gremlin.) His anthology by the same name is one place to start. He's one terrific writer, and more mainstream than the previous two.

Ah! I remember that episode clearly. It was brilliant!

I'll need to follow up on all that. Books are out of the questions now --- I just threw out many hundreds of $$$ of retail value of books last night, and I'll be doing that to more as we prepare to move.



Mirrormask (2005)



@40hz - I think you will enjoy this. See below.

This is a very British style film. If you hate British styles, you'll hate this, and if you love 'em, you may well like this.

Now, as a British film, I find many make me want to commit suicide rather than watch another second. Some are just boring to tears and entirely push you to suicide. Some British film makers love to mirror their weather. tongue

Then... There is that other class of British films that is simply brilliant or bizarre - one of the two, and sometimes both.

This film will likely get you to pull out the razor blades in the first 20 minutes or so, but don't slice your wrists quite so quickly -- it gets a lot better! Wink

What is this film? A mix of:

  • The Dark Crystal
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • The Wizard of Oz
  • The Wall

But it's more than that. It mixes in some kind of bizarrely organic clock-work world with a dark element that isn't as hopeful as steam punk.

The art and CGI is spectacularly well done.

I do NOT recommend this for people that like big tits and sex scenes, or lots of shoot 'em up, or mainstream films.

This is squarely in the "art" category, but not so far into it that it's just stupid, as many "art" films are.

Take that for what you will and from my past recommendations and likes.

Oh... and one last thing...

If you like to get high... yeah... do it. You'll like this. Very trippy~! tongue Grin  Thmbsup

Just watched Gone Girl.



Great story, though it focused a bit overmuch on the sensationalist and titillating rather than emphasizing the substance of the story.  Less is more, in my opinion.  And that seems to be a lost art.

But I would recommend it, with a definite caveat that it is on the more harsh end of the R scale.

Atsu Hime
50 episodes.
Based on the true life story of Tenshōin, an influential and extraordinary Japanese princess who lived from 1836 to 1883.

Good site.  I've been watching some Asian movies etc. on YouTube and many emanate from there.   Thmbsup
I'm up to Episode 37, which also now includes scenes with Horikita Maki as the Imperial Princess (not to detract from the others, and especially Miyazaki Aoi as Lady Tenshoin), and this historical drama series continues to impress beyond all expectations.  Thmbsup

Wyrmwood



Zombie B movie with an awesome Ned Kelly allusion. Aussie flick. Wink

It gets funkier.

Ranks right up there with "Dead Alive" - a Kiwi flick that came out a few decades ago. Wink

Some seriously messed up black humour in there.  Thmbsup

The educational point that I took away was Aussies say "ay" where Canadians say "eh". Very intellectual stuff!

But still fun.

Hint, there's a twist in this flick that isn't in many stories you'll hear.

Another Aussie flick that I watched a few days ago, The Rover

It's one of those movies that I felt was too slow moving and even boring while I was watching it, but I keep thinking about it. The thing that make me very glad I stuck with it is that it has many story lines that are just hinted at and characters that you wonder about how they got to this point - what's their back story?  You are only given some small bit of history on the main character, Eric.  Everything else if left for you wonder about, and I think that makes this movie finish like a great short story.

I've not finished watching this, but am posting it because you can get it for free now.

Bought

This film is free for a limited time.

FYI -- This covers a broad spectrum of health issues and not just vaccines.

In our "Activist Post Theater," you can purchase the year's most thought provoking film - Bought. However, most likely due to increased media pressure to accept medical force when it comes to vaccines - the makers of the movie have released it online for free.

Early viewers are reacting as though it is the most important, mind-blowing information to see in a film this year.

This offer is only available between February 22 - March 6, 2015. You can enter your email here, or simply click here to watch now.

Maki Horikita is a top -and I mean top- Japanese actress who gives an awesome performance as Minato, a beautiful, sweet young woman who does not realize she is Multiple Personality and can't figure her life out.
This is a picture of her 'Alter' or 'alternate persona', whose name is 'Nighto', also played by her:
