I dunno whether you lot were aware of this but there's a recent four and a half hour long documentary on the making of Hellraiser out there. Leviathan: The Story Of Hellraiser And Hellbound: Hellraiser II. Just pressed play:


I've since watched this and, while it was an okay watch, it was far too sparse on content to justify its running time. At least a third could have been edited out (if the editors are still alive, it became so shoddily cut toward the end that it was difficult to watch, or listen to at any rate), as the majority of the film consisted of mutual back-slapping to a ridiculously extended degree.

No Barker, aside from a brief snippet of an interview from the '80s (judging by his haircut). No Ashley Laurence (Kirsty) or Grace Kirby (the female Cenobite) - this was a strange one as, though Barbie Wilde was given plenty of screentime, the discussion was all about Kirby's appearance in the first film, Wilde never spoke about her time in the role. Which brings me on to another point: despite the title, the entire documentary is given over to the first film, and Barker's circle in the run up to it. Hellbound is only focussed on at the very end, barely as a footnote. A bit pointless including it in the title at all.

Never Sleep Again (the Nightmare On Elm Street documentary) pisses on it from a height.

Nick and I watched the Sacrement.

Rip off of the Reverend Jim Guyana thing but fucking terrible.

1 fists.

Shutter was the best horror movie for me.

Watched that a couple of years ago.
Completely pointless.
I just don't see the point in re-telling Guyana (sometimes in almost exact detail), in a contemporary setting with made up characters.

Sure, but Never Sleep Again is about as comprehensive as horror documentaries get.

Indeed. I must pick it up, actually. I've got all the films, it'd be a nice companion piece.

Crystal Lake Memories is even more comprehensive.
But it all depends on how much information about Friday the 13th movies you want to hear.

I'm not familiar with the franchise TBH (I've only seen the first one and, I think, Jason X), and both were years ago, so I'd give that a miss until I see some more of the series, and I'm in no rush to do that. Oh, I've seen the remake, but I don't think that counts.

How can it be more comprehensive? Those Friday films are pretty much about nothing. How much detail went into the scripts and set designs of those films before Jason Takes Manhattan? Fuck all.

Let's not forget that there is pretty much nothing to Jason as a 'character'.


I'm guessing by more comprehensive you mean longer and full of trivial shite.


Just going back to the Nightmare films for a second, one thing I really appreciated about them is how they tried to do something a little different for each one. Unfortunately they often hired directors that just weren't talented enough to get the job done.

Yes, Stat. That's exactly what I mean. :roll:

I watched the making of Return of the Living Dead recently. Now that's a pointless and overlong documentary full of waffle and trivial shite.

Was that the one on the special edition dvd? Yeah, it's dull.

Cool movie though. The sequel is balls though.

I don't know if this is the one on the DVD but this is the one I meant.



He's dead, she's dead, they're dead, they were dicks, he was a dick, we don't talk about that, waffle, waffle, end.

The original Carrie, the original Dawn of the Dead and the original Day of the Dead.

I love zombie flicks!

Yeah, I have.
I couldn't even finish it.
The guy's all over the place with his opinions. He just seems to be mad at New Line because they didn't make the Friday film he wanted them to make.

Post subject:  Re: Your favourite horror movie (and sub genres)

The New Line Friday films were pretty shit though.

Then again, so were most of the Universal ones, they were just less shit.

Jason Goes To Hell is terrible and so is Jason X.

Jason Goes To Hell (especially in its uncut format) is actually quite decent in places. Jason X is great. Just a big laugh with lots of gore and one of the series best death scenes.

Lists like this tend to be arbitrary but there are some decent ones there, along with some interesting sounding ones that I wouldn't mind seeing.

Is it just me that finds modern day horror movies to be, in the most part at least, bland and sterile? I feel the same about modern day action films too.

The 60's gave us the incredible Plague of the Zombies, they just don't make stuff like that anymore! :(

you're right. Everything nowadays is absolute shite. Everything in the past was better.
