What Is The Most Disturbing Film?

Re: What Is The Most Disturbing Film?

I've edited a post and removed a few others.

I'm pretty sure this went without saying but just so there's zero deniability: if some argument flares up and causes a thread to be closed, you can't...

Re: Who Are These Movie Stars?

I'll guess #3 is Dwayne Johnson.

And I'll tap out there.

Re: A scary thing happened on the way to the Movie Forums - Horrorcram

Thanks, I've only seen a couple of those, but I'll have a look at some of the others.

I've always really liked In The Mouth Of Madness, though I'm a little afraid to watch it again now because I...

Yeah, it definitely wouldn't, based on the criteria you've outlined.

Re: Movie Forums Top 100 of the 2010s - Preliminary Thread

I have a pretty good idea of what my top four will be, I think there's a pretty clear tier there, but after that it's kind of a mish-mash that's going to be very hard to rank.

You honestly don't need to persuade me of any of this. This is the tune I'm almost invariably singing. You'll find me making basically this exact argument in a dozen other threads. I explained it...

Re: Willow (Disney+)

I'm a little intrigued.

I kinda "missed" Willow as a kid. I have no idea why, it seems right up my alley, exactly the kind of thing my parents would show me, etc. Just didn't really see much of...

Re: I used to get bullied by someone when I was teenager

Yeah, my "if plausible" is eliding some stuff that would normally take a few hundred words to expound on, but hopefully it's clear to the OP roughly what that means and what's workable for them,...

This is pretty much all the stuff I was going to say so I'll just quote it.

I guess I'll also just kind of put my thumb on the scale for trying to move past it, if plausible. Bad things happen...

Semi-genuine question: has any Lovecraft adaptation really worked? If not, do we think it's just because "the thing was so horrible it can't be explained with words!" is inherently impossible to...

I should point out that I actually changed the title to what you see now, because it was even vaguer before.
