Probably, but the Mama "creature" is played by a guy with some rare congenital disorder that makes his limbs really long.

Javier Botet is fascinating, yes. But he's a horror staple! He's the [REC] monster!

Yep. He's in all three, and he does the vampire effects in The Strain.

Have you delved much into modern Spanish horror? He's just about everywhere... And Spanish Horror (thanks to the likes of Del Toro) has had something of a Renaissance in the last few years.  You really should explore the sub-genre since most of it leaves me shouting, "RC SHOULD HAVE MADE THIS!"

Get the following into you -- Timecrimes, Julia's Eyes (del toro), Thesis (the debut for the guy who would go on to The Others), The Skin I Live In (fucking Almodovar paying homage to 60s Euro-trash horror a la Argento), The Orphanage (del toro, again), [REC] you've seen, but get the Army of Darkness-style [REC] 3 in you, and The Devil's Backbone.

The Orphanage I've seen (and loved). Timecrimes you've been shouting at me about for six months now.

Maybe we should balance Twin Peaks with some Spanish horror this semester. Missus Rc won't watch this stuff with me.

Six months?! I think you mean SIX YEARS!


...

 Shouldn't we be encouraging new ideas -- Timecrimes, etc. -- or new twists on old ideas -- [Rec], 28 Days Later.  And if we do throwback, the playful creativity of Drag Me to Hell comes to mind long before Trick r Treat.

The Babadook (or Mister Babadook depending on how it gets released.)


This is screening on Saturday as part of the festival The Matchmaker is in. I'm pretty stoked to see it.

I couldn't agree more. She's amazing.

BTW, I did see The Babadook and loved it to death, but have been too busy to give a full report.

Housebound!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Housebound

It's the script I wrote in 1999, the thieves! One concerned protagonist is trying to convince everyone else that there's a malevolent ghost haunting their house, and the universal opinion is that having a ghost around is kind of a blast.

It's a wonderful combination of LOL comedy and creepy, kind of well-done horror.

Okay, folks! Without looking it up -- name a horror movie where everyone survives!

I'll start: Poltergeist.

I'm on the fence here because the remake does end with a death.

The 1986 original does not.
