    You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    • James Coker

      …FUCK YES MY QUESTION WAS ANSWERED! FUCK YEAH!!!!!!

    • Chernobyl Kinsman

      Oh yeah, are none of you guys watching American Horror Story this season? Its had some really fucked up shit and I thought it might get a mention =)

      • GODFLESH69

        personally i think AHS is unwatchable most horrifying thing i saw was Precious getting freaked by a minotaur seeing her morbidly obese ass that cant act for shit was horrible enough, and that Stevie Nicks shit really? who else besides this guy is digging this shit? To each their own i wont waste my time on that show again enjoy!

        • Debi Moore

          Actually, I loved this season of AHS. Asylum is still my favorite, but Coven has been a lot of fun, and Kathy Bates KILLED it every time she was onscreen. Yeah, Sidibe was the weak link for sure, but overall the show is “must see” TV for me and definitely a highlight of the current season.

        • Chernobyl Kinsman

          Its just fucking weird, like it always has been, not saying its high art but I find it enjoyable and insane in equal measure.

          I can handle when people have an opion that doesn’t align with the majority. That’s reasonable. Hell, I often find that’s often the case with my own opinion. But your comment was ugly. Flat out ugly. I don’t know what’s sadder: This nasty personal attack on Gabourey Sidibe, or the fact that it reads like it was written by an angry seven year old with the inability to use periods at the end of sentences.

          • GODFLESH69

            Wow you actually took your time to look all that shit up really? In my opinion her “acting” on that horrid show doesn’t live up to all the awards you can list so yeah it’s an ugly comnment boo-hoo tired of all the pc crap and people get offended over everything she got it on with a minotaur to me that makes her fair game it ‘s comedy, go blow and preach to somebody else you douche , calling me out what a joke!……..

            • Cinemascribe

              If having a negative reaction to encountering random hatefulness for the sake of random hatefulness ona site that’s actually remarkably civil as a rule makes me a douche then, hey, you’re fucking-A right, plebian.

              And, hey, just to give you some perspective here, B movie director Jim Wynorski once flat out told me in a thread that he hoped I died badly because I jumped into a public fray and defended a negative review Foy gave of one of his movies. That didn’t prevent me from commenting further, so your trying to mimic being assertive by telling me to blow doesn’t impress me at all.

              This isn’t about being pc. It’s about the fact that her weight issues have not one thing to do with her ability to act. It was an asshole thing to write and I called you on it. I can promise that if I’m perusing the threads and see something similar from you in the future, I’ll call you on that too, because I get an unabashed kick out of screwing with people who tear others down because they look different. If that’s being preachy, then so be it.

            • GODFLESH69

              She’s hard on the eyes that’s the horror on that show for me wont tune in again enjoy chubby chaser!!!

            • Uncle Creepy

              Enough, guys. The actress in question, looks the way she looks. It’s as simple as that and there’s nothing wrong with it. I’m sure she’s been met with a lot of obstacles in her career as a result and good for her for overcoming them.

              That being said… her performance in AHSC has consistently been off the entire season. I know this chick can act, but damn it if she hasn’t been terrible in almost all of her scenes. Her dialogue constantly sounds like it’s read off the page or if it’s her first take or something. Especially when you have her acting opposite the legends she’s sharing the screen with like Lange, Bassett, and Bates.

            • GODFLESH69

              yeah that’s all I was saying the show is terrible (IMO). I only tuned in a couple times and when i saw her with that damn mangoat talking about freak love it was just too much to take just comedy. Her line delivery is just atrocious, everything i’ve seen her in not much better. I’ve never seen Precious it’s not my kind of flick so cant say . I didn’t mean to get anybody’s (scribes) panties in a bunch with my comments i’ve been told i’m insensitive that’s just me i’m not an ahole . Long live the HORROR!

            • nazo

              Um, you are aware that the actress didn’t actually fuck a minotaur, right? Taking on a role does not make someone “fair game” for personal insults.

    • nazo

      Latino *flair*

      I felt bad for Foy listening to that episode. I hope being on a FBI watchlist won’t interfere too much with his daily activities.

      And I enjoyed listening to the “bizarre, incoherent fan emails” (one of which was mine) even if kidd didn’t.

    • MonsterMash

      You know, it wasn’t my favorite show, but the whole Jurassic Park court drama joke was totally worth it. It’s at the hour forty-four minute mark if you want to skip to it. A movie that was weird I saw as a kid would be an obscure made-for-TV movie called Don’t look Under the Bed. I haven’t seen it in a long time, but I remember it being good.

    • GODFLESH69

      geez this is comedy you guys & Kidd debating PA at least we cant say you’re not all passionate about HORROR and that’s the foundation of this site so we can move on now….

    • GODFLESH69

      Cant say i’ve enjoyed the PA flicks i’ve endured I dont really understand the phenomena with that franchise dont find anything scary about them and so I know to stay away not my bag, I think little known movies like Lovely Molly or old school flicks like The Changeling or Burnt Offerings deliver more than PA just my opinion.

    • kiddcapone

      Well that was rather disappointing. All rants aside, let’s bring this back to tranquility. I brought up several points about TMO’s that were completed ignored. I would have loved to hear some explanations.

      #1: Why is the police department in Fright Night such a big issue for not putting up caution tape around a burned out house but the cops in TMO’s get a complete pass for missing a clear as day trapdoor during a murder scene investigation that leads into a devil worship chamber?

      #2: If you can go through an evil door which leads you back into the past on one particular night, why wouldn’t that guarantee the success of any evil plan because any threat could be eliminated in the past?

      #3: A complaint about 4 was a lot of the same shit happened with little advancement of the plot. What advanced the plot of the witches in TMO’s? They were introduced in 3, returned in 4, and now back in TMO’s. What major plot advancement about the coven’s intentions were revealed in the last 270 minutes besides the fact they now “mark” the chosen ones?

      #4: A complaint about 4 was no good reason for filming everything. At the beginning of TMO’s, yes, it felt like two friends screwing around with a camera. But once Jesse is possessed, why would Hector and Marisol keep passing off the camera that they didn’t even own? Why would anyone keep filming when you’re scared out of your mind and running for your life?

      #5: A complaint about 4, no scares. What was “scary” about this? It had the most amount of cheap jump scares in the entire franchise. How many horror flicks have you seen in your lifetime that involved a person in a car, seeing the evil person standing there, looking away, the person is suddenly “gone”, and then bam, they are on the roof?

      #6: The TMO’s ended exactly like 4, it was back at the grandmother’s house again, the witches were still standing around, a person was running around empty rooms while the possessed person slammed into doors, the door eventually breaks, the satanic kool-aid man runs at the camera, it falls down and fades to black. Besides the Dark Shadows ripoff doorway, it was the same exact ending as 4, which was universally bashed in the DFF, but in TMO’s this time; it’s fresh and the 2nd best in the series? How is that possible?

      #7: I need to know this. What would be your final breaking point? I get it, you love these movies, but at what point would enough be enough? If they made 3, 4, 5, additional movies that keep on recycling the same shit and all ended the same way, when will you finally get annoyed? Never? It’s not that it ends with a handheld camera, it’s the point that they are not doing anything different.

      PA: Micah thrown at the camera, Katie attacks the screen.
      PA2: Katie snaps Dan’s neck, Kristie flies toward camera, screen goes static.
      PA3: Knives dropped from above, Julie thrown downstairs towards camera, Dennis’s body is snapped, screen goes static.
      PA4: Knife dropped from above, Katie snaps Ben’s neck, possessed Katie runs toward camera, screen goes static.
      PA4.5: Marisol dropped from above, sheet thrown towards camera, possessed Jesse runs toward camera, screen goes static.

      • Uncle Creepy

        Sorry for not having notes ready to address your concerns. Though I’m fairly certain no matter what we said, you’d find issue with it and go off on a sixteen page tangent.

        • kiddcapone

          I just kind of figured since I was basically the only person who went on record and voiced legitimate issues that a few of them would have been addressed during the conversation. Hell, even the ending still can’t be discussed on a film in 19th place and leaving theaters next week. Very odd for a DFF show that regularly features “black flag” spoilers on every single film.

          I apologize for wasting your time.

          • Uncle Creepy

            You got us, dude. All part of our support Paranormal Activity conspiracy. Guilty as charged.

            • kiddcapone

              What would you call it? Why talk about the endings to almost all films except TMO’s and then pretend it doesn’t receive special treatment? Why doesn’t it qualify for the “Shark alarm, black flag” warning? You didn’t stop short from talking about the ending to Carrie during the same show?

              This is as frustrating as Foy trying to explain to you that it’s not the fact the film ended with a handheld camera in the same empty house, but the fact it didn’t do anything DIFFERENT with the handheld camera in same empty house and you completely not getting it.

              Carry on. Apparently reading bizarre incoherent fan emails is more entertaining than having an actual conversation about a horror film. Again, I apologize for wasting your time.

          • The Buz

            What’d you want me to say? I didn’t hate it. I voiced my concerns, which differed from yours, and that was that.

            Also I wasn’t the one to take issue with Fright Night (though it is hilarious to point out the lack of police tape).

            It just wasn’t a divisive film for us.

            Also why do you keep watching them? I don’t mean that as any sort of insult either. Honest questions. I think it’s well documented at this point that when I don’t like something I stop paying any sorts of attention towards it (except for Walking Dead because I DONT KNOW WHY).

            That mantra has served me well. I sincerely suggest it. I don’t like SAW so I stopped watching pretty much after the first. Do that. You’ll be happier.

            Also PA 4 wasn’t universally bashed…because I didn’t see it. Maybe that is why I didn’t hate TMOs? The fatigue just hasn’t fully set in yet.

            • kiddcapone

              I WAS finished watching these films, in fact, I’m done watching all found footage films. I won’t see Devil’s Due and I certainly won’t see PA5 or V/H/S 3.

              The only reason I watched TMO’s is because Steve personally said to me that if I liked PA3, which I did very much, that I’ll like TMO’s. Well, I hated it. So the whole thing started off as basic assbusting and spun out of control.

              It would be the same thing as if I was the first person to personally suggested to Steve to watch Strawberry Estates. I would expect him to say, What The Fuck, why is that good!?!?! And then I don’t explain myself…

            • The Buz

              Eh, I can see the frustration there. But I certainly wouldn’t hold too much of a grudge. ;)

              We all have strange taste some times. Like for the life of me I’ll never figure out how you people give The Walking Dead such a huge pass.

              What do I know though…Carnosaur 2 is one of my favorite movies. Un-ironically.

            • kiddcapone

              I don’t hold any grudges. We all have different tastes, that’s what makes it fun. I’ve said it a dozen times, if I ever run into any of you guys at a horror con in the future, I’ll be the first to shake your hand and buy you a beer. It won’t be me giving the stick face.

              That whole DFF segment about The Marked One’s offered up nothing. No major details were discussed. None of my legit criticism came up. The ending wasn’t allowed to be talked about. All you got was general statements; Steve loved it, you thought it was okay, and Foy is amused by how much Steve likes these crappy movies. I’ve listened to all the shows, that’s not the norm. It’s not a Paranormal Activity conspiracy, but a deliberate weak attempt to keep interest alive for those on the fence about seeing it.

            • The Buz

              I don’t think it was a deliberate attempt. I mean…why? The movie is out of the top 20, it’s been out for a few weeks. What the hell could the studio, us, or the movie have to gain?

              It just wasn’t that divisive of a flick. It’s happened many times on DFF. I know it’s probably most funny when we’re getting into a heated debate with one another but this one just didn’t invoke it. I don’t know why, it’s not like I went easy on it. I gave it it’s positives, and it’s negatives.

              And not for nothing man but none of us are going to comb through the talk backs and directly address someone who isn’t on the call’s specific criticisms.

              Now if you had tweeted back at us while we were recording, we certainly would have responded in the Fuck Us Back portion of the show.

            • kiddcapone

              I don’t think any of you had something to gain. I just can’t remember a single movie in the history of DFF where the ending was not allowed to be talked about. Can you? A movie that didn’t at least get a Shark Alarm or stop listening warning? World War Z, Insidious 2, The Purge, Carrie, just to name a few of the last ones that didn’t get the secret ending treatment.

              The Marked Ones is not the greatest ending in the history of cinema.

            • The Buz

              The last episode (might have been episode before that) I specifically stopped everyone from spoiling the Season 5 finale of Supernatural because it’s just too good to have it spoiled.

              It happens all the time. We didn’t spoil the ending of You’re Next, Resolution….bunch of stuff.

              And am I missing something? I don’t remember any of us saying The Marked Ones has the greatest ending in the history of cinema.

            • kiddcapone

              I don’t have time to go back and listen to them again (it’s not really that important), but I can say from a person who listened since the beginning, the overwhelming majority of everything discussed, from movies to shows, is without restrictions, and when spoilers are brought up, it’s usually with a shark alarm warning. Am I wrong?

              What would be the point of having a candid talk about a big movie if you’re just only going to say general shit with no detailed information? And then arbitrarily go into great detail with everything else if the mood strikes you? DFF is usually like a bunch of horror fans comparing notes, not just saying I Like It or I Hate it, let’s move on.

              No one said the words “greatest ending” but Steve did say “vital to the enjoyment of the movie as say the twist in Psycho” and I think that’s insane. The Marked Ones is hardly Psycho. It didn’t play into the context of the story what-so-ever. It was as essential to the plot as Jason is jumping out of the water in Friday the 13th. It was just a tacked on scene to make the film connected with part 1.

            • GODFLESH69

              Kidd seems like you’ve got alot of time since you have kept this thing going but keep it coming it’s comedy but try to get out of your moms basement and enjoy the day !!!

            • kiddcapone

              Every time I think I’m out, I get pulled back in…

              I’m done talking about this shit. If you notice, I’m only responding to a post directed towards me. I suppose I can just ignore them, but where’s the fun in that?

              Don’t worry, I’m being paid as we speak with your taxpayer dollars to waste time typing shit on a horror site. Being a government employee certainly has it’s benefits. USA USA USA!

              Carry on…

            • The Buz

              Well not only am I involved with every DFF, but I also edit them. That means I roughly listen to each show twice. Sometimes more if I have to edit certain sounds and put in effects to properly mix them. I think I’d know, don’t you?

              Do we go into a lot of Shark Alarms? Yeah, totally do. But we also don’t always do that. It’s not this weird thing that just suddenly happened on this show.

              You’re grasping for straws because you hated the movie so much.

              Also what a weird critique to have?

            • kiddcapone

              I’m well aware that you edit the shows. My only point is, 8 out of 10 things on DFF usually involve shark alarms. The ending started to come up and Steve said something to the effect of, STOP, we’re not talking about the ending, which struck me as weird since it was the major film of the show. No one pulled the plug when talking about the ending of Dexter and that made for an entertaining debate. Or the alternate ending of Carrie. Or World War Z. Etc.

              The ending was not vital to the plot. It’s not Psycho, Oldboy, or Seven. Nothing that happens during the last 10 seconds is set up or pivotal to the plot. It’s like knowing Freddy’s glove grabs the hockey mask at the end of Jason Goes to Hell. It’s just a tacked on moment to draw a weak parallel between two films.

            • The Buz

              But we did talk about the ending. I went into great detail about how I would have rather had it float through every movie from the franchise and others we haven’t seen yet.

              There was a 5 minute discussion about that. Andrew and I were fully agreeing with each other on it and likened it to the end of Bioshock: Infinite.

              What’s the issue? ?

            • kiddcapone

              You talked about what would have been a better ending, but you didn’t exactly talk about *shark alarm* the fact it ended up in Micah and Katie’s kitchen from part 1 to witness her stabbing him.

              More importantly, I agree 100% that if they floated through the previous films, floated through a future door that gave a quick glimpse of the PA end game, and ended at the Blair Witch house (I’m sure the rights could have been purchased), I would have left the theater much more satisfied at a clever ending and easily more forgiving of the rest of the film.

              The current weak ending only multiplied my anger because the film basically spent 90 minutes just to say one simple thing: The coven is bigger than just Katie’s family. And that was basically it.

            • MonsterMash

              Now that is a series in need of a re-boot! and I don’t think they’re anything special, but a reboot has the potential of being a feature length version of the T-Rex rampage in JP-TLW. Maybe you could star and Danny Trejo could play a T-Rex?

            • The Buz

              I would reboot the living fuck out of Carnosaur.

              The. Living. Fuck.

      • Uncle Creepy

        Okay, here goes.

        “#1: Why is the police department in Fright Night such a big issue for not putting up caution tape around a burned out house but the cops in TMO’s get a complete pass for missing a clear as day trapdoor during a murder scene investigation that leads into a devil worship chamber?”

        Who says they missed it? We never saw the cops investigating the house. If they did find it they left it as is. The furniture and everything in the house was never touched by the police. Everything was right where it was left. Caution tape hanging outside of the scene and all. The trap door was only new to the kids.

        “#2: If you can go through an evil door which leads you back into the past on one particular night, why wouldn’t that guarantee the success of any evil plan because any threat could be eliminated in the past?”

        Now you’re going all Terminator and the fact is there’s no good explanations for this. It’s just something that happened in the movie. A plot device. No dumber or more unbelievable than time traveling Cyborgs or accepting that the dead have risen and are eating the living. When dealing with cinema in ANY type of situation there are moments in which you just have to accept things for what they are. It’s either that or be horribly disappointed when you realize you can’t make it from one said of L.A. to the other like Jack Bauer did in “24.”

        “#3: A complaint about 4 was a lot of the same shit happened with little advancement of the plot. What advanced the plot of the witches in TMO’s? They were introduced in 3, returned in 4, and now back in TMO’s. What major plot advancement about the coven’s intentions were revealed in the last 270 minutes besides the fact they now “mark” the chosen ones?”

        *SPOILERS*

        We got more backstory on Katie and Kristi’s mom and just what the coven was doing with these kids. We see that she’s been doing this outside of her own family. We learn how they were chosen and that this coven is a lot bigger than originally conceived. That’s a hell of a lot more than PA4 gave us. In PA4 nothing was advanced. Nothing made sense. All that was brought up was more questions that still don’t make sense like why Katie would go through all the trouble of nabbing Hunter only to give him up for adoption. The end game has yet to be revealed. I suggest you digress from seeing another because anywhere it goes you’ll be disappointed and not care.

        *END SPOILERS*

        “#4: A complaint about 4 was no good reason for filming everything. At the beginning of TMO’s, yes, it felt like two friends screwing around with a camera. But once Jesse is possessed, why would Hector and Marisol keep passing off the camera that they didn’t even own? Why would anyone keep filming when you’re scared out of your mind and running for your life?”

        In PA4 everything was filmed and nothing really happened. To make matter worse they kept referencing the camera over and over again reminding you that yes, they’re filming. Everything felt set up and the characters were as unlikeable and as unnatural as they come. I never bought any of them. Not even for a second. The leads in TMO had chemistry to spare. There was never a moment when I didn’t feel as if I was watching something that was happening to two best friends. They were fun, they were funny, and in a few scenes they actually displayed some pathos between them… like during the “I’m not your friend” moment. I genuinely cared about these two. The one thing they didn’t do was allude to the fact that they were constantly filming. They just let it ride. As a fifth film is the series you have to come to expect that the camera is running. There’s no need to remind the audience every five minutes. Is it as guilty of filming everything? Yes, but it’s not as in your face about it. And at the end when he was running for his life he was using the light on the camera so that he could see.

        “#5: A complaint about 4, no scares. What was “scary” about this? It had the most amount of cheap jump scares in the entire franchise. How many horror flicks have you seen in your lifetime that involved a person in a car, seeing the evil person standing there, looking away, the person is suddenly “gone”, and then bam, they are on the roof?”

        Scares are subjective. What you find scary can be entirely different from what someone else finds scary. Especially as a jaded horror fan. When I see these movies I do so usually in a packed theatre full of casual and rabid fans and they scream their heads off the entire time. Sometimes I’ve seen them leave the theatre shaking.

        “#6: The TMO’s ended exactly like 4, it was back at the grandmother’s house again, the witches were still standing around, a person was running around empty rooms while the possessed person slammed into doors, the door eventually breaks, the satanic kool-aid man runs at the camera, it falls down and fades to black. Besides the Dark Shadows ripoff doorway, it was the same exact ending as 4, which was universally bashed in the DFF, but in TMO’s this time; it’s fresh and the 2nd best in the series? How is that possible?”

        When I say don’t ruin the ending for anyone I’m referring to where Hector ends up. Not the scene in the grandmother’s house… although for fans of the series, it’s cool to see them revisit locations. If you appreciated these movies, which you obviously do not, you’d appreciate it too and you’d be bummed if someone spoiled it for you. It’s not all about you. In this TMO case the ending is just as vital to the enjoyment of the movie as say the twist in Psycho. It’s what ties everything together and yeah for fan’s that’s a special and extremely cool moment.

        “#7: I need to know this. What would be your final breaking point? I get it, you love these movies, but at what point would enough be enough? If they made 3, 4, 5, additional movies that keep on recycling the same shit and all ended the same way, when will you finally get annoyed? Never? It’s not that it ends with a handheld camera, it’s the point that they are not doing anything different.”

        PA4 was nearly my breaking point. TMO got things back on track. As long as they can keep giving me good characters whom I like and keep advancing the story, I’ll keep watching them. I’m speaking only for myself here.

        There… I addressed your points and since you’ve taken upon yourself to attack me, the site, and it’s writers, I don’t really give a shit what you think about my replies or explanations. Yes, “You went to see it because I thought if you liked 3 than you’d like TMO.” Why? Because the characters were just as likable (if not more) and the action in this one was rather amped up for a PA film. Of course you don’t see it that way… so it sucks and the movie is trash. Sorry you didn’t like it and you wasted a coupon on it. Are we done now?

          Okay, thanks. Now was that so hard?

          And just for the record, I never attacked you or the site, I was busting balls and you took things personally. Andrew is a different case. If you act like an arrogant dick prepared to be treated as such. It’s just that simple. The fact I’ve been on here for almost 8 years now and it’s only him that inspires the occasional nasty exchange is all the proof you need. I know how it goes, he may be an asshole, but he’s YOUR asshole, so it’s okay in the DC universe. Like the obnoxious drunk friend who gets you into unwanted bar fights but your obligated to back him up.

          If you don’t want me to post on this site any longer, all you need to do is ask.

          • Uncle Creepy

            Of course I want you to keep posting on the site, but you need to know when integrity comes into question then, I do take that seriously. You have no idea how many times we could have sold out but didn’t so we could keep this site the way that we wanted it to be. I’d rather die a pauper than a rich douchebag with no soul.

            That’s me. The wreckless arrogant dick who thinks I’m better than everyone else. You should see how embarassed Steve and the gang are when I’m liquored up at Comic Con parties. Everyone just wants to kick my ass.

            I find it funny that I only ever respond with facts and sarcasm and that it enrages you to the point of making personal attacks on me. Sure, I could retort with the same vitriol and presumptions you constantly make on me or reduce myself to bragging and gloating to prove a point, but I’m not that person. The ultimate irony is that I have a reputation as being a really nice guy out in the world. I don’t even have any real enemies. You’re the first person to ever call me an asshole that I know of…and that’s after over a decade of online fist-a-cuffs that go all the way back to my teenage years.

            I confess that even now, when I have time to kill, I do enjoy shattering ignorant online assumptions about the business I work in (something the internet feels like it was designed for) or just engaging in spirited debates cause, like everyone else here, I’m super passionate about all this stuff. If that makes me a prick, so be it. I’m having too much fun with life to lose any sleep at night over what people on the internet think of me.

              He doesn’t like you. I don’t like you either, you just watch yourself, we’re wanted men!

              j/k, I like all you guys, not that it matters a tiny jot to any of ya in the grand scheme of things =)

            • kiddcapone

              I’m never enraged, just occasionally annoyed, because you continuously throw out unsolicited “facts” during regular conversation that you pretend is some magic trump card for every debate. I don’t care you work in the “industry”. I don’t consider your opinion any greater than the million other names in the industry that quickly scroll past during the end credits that no one bothers to read. Sitting C Class celebrities in a chair and pushing the record button while they talk doesn’t make you Martin Scorsese. Cutting together a few episodes of a cartoon doesn’t make you Mike Judge. I am not impressed.

              Spirited conversation and being super passionate is good. Telling someone they need to “learn film history” or “you don’t understand the process in Hollywood” during every debate is nothing short of being a pretentious douche bag. As if all of a sudden, everything you’ve ever read, studied, or watched for 3 decades is invalid because some self-proclaimed “insider” said so is laughable. It’s not being sarcastic, it’s 100% condescending.

              As far as others not thinking you’re an asshole, they just read an email from someone on the last DFF that pretty much suggested this exact fact. I guess you’re not very good at reading in between the lines.

              I think a group hug or spooning will fix everything!, really Fiends take your meds and move on …

            • Sirand

              I guess it’s a good thing I’m not trying to impress anyone, least of all random people on the internet who pretend to know what my life is like. I’ve never acted like I was Scorcese nor do I have any ambitions to be some A list Hollywood player. I keep my head down and do my work. As Steve so beautifully put it, “I’d rather die a pauper than a rich douchebag with no soul.” Those are words to live by.

              If you debate films, I expect you to know your shit. If you say something about an artist or the industry that is clearly wrong, I’ll call you on it. If that makes me a douche, then guilty as charged. I’d rather be thought of as a dick than ignorant on the subject I’m passionately talking about.

              As for that e-mail on DFF, it was clearly in good jest. We all thought it was pretty funny cause we all do the same shit to each other. I still find it hilarious and weird that anything we say or do is followed by people…to the point where they actually write and post about it.

          Just a little rebuttal…

          #1: I think it’s highly unlikely, especially with all the unsolved murder cases that involve cults, the police department would find a secret blood-stained satanic chamber and then proceed to leave all evidence behind.

          #2: It’s a plot device, but one that opens a potentially large loophole.

          #3: All you basically said was TMO’s advanced the story by showing the coven was larger than just Katie’s family. It didn’t hint at the end game or answer any of the other lingering questions.

          #4: If you’re willing to accept the fact the camera is always rolling, because it has to, then complaining about it during 4 is inconsistent.

          #5: Yes, scares are subjective, but the ones they tried to pull off were old clichés and cheap ineffective jump scares.

          #6: You appreciated where Hector ended up, I wasn’t impressed. Hardly a “Psycho” ending in my opinion. But it was what came before it I was talking about. It was the same exact scene from 4 with a different person until the doorway.

          #7: My point was, if every single Friday the 13th film ended with Jason smashing through a door and running at the camera before it fades to black, how many of these films, regardless of characters, can you watch in a row before you get pissed at the lazy repetitive ending? How many of these films can keep ending the same way before even you gets annoyed?

        Just to address point #1; nobody would have given a single fuck about the lack of cops in Fright Night if they had gotten the tone and characters right. That plot hole was not what was wrong about that movie.

        • kiddcapone

          I agree, that’s exactly my point. Fright Night had major issues, but the lack of police tape is silly, especially if you’re willing to make up explanations for nonsense in a PA film.

          Did the police accidentally miss or ignore an obvious blood soaked devil worship chamber at a murder scene? I guess it’s possible. Same as in Fright Night neighborhood college kids stealing the police tape and hanging it up in their dorm room. When you make shit up, the sky is the limit…
