Doing some scary movie watching

If you are ever in the mood to watch a really fugged up movie that is very well made, I suggest "Antichrist" starring Willem Dafoe. It is currently on Netflix.

It is a really beautifully shot movie with brilliant acting throughout. It's basically about a married couple that, after the death of their baby son and subsequent mental breakdown, retreat to a cabin in the woods. Dafoe plays the husband who is a therapist. He believes he can help his wife who is slowly losing her mind.

The film has some very graphic violence and sex scenes. It is not for the faint of heart. On the surface it might seem like a film made to only shock people, but on a deeper level I think it says a lot about mental health. And it also happens to have some of the best cinematography I can remember.

I wouldn't recommend Anti-Christ at all. I hated it and don't see how anyone could like it. The entire movie was nothing but gross out shots. I really didn't care for V/H/S either. I liked the first segment but after that it was just kind of meh. Trick r' Treat though, is amazing.

Cool - thanks for all the recommendations! Tonight might be a movie marathon night.

Sometimes I have no clue how Netflix comes up with some of the categories that it recommends. I'm pretty sure "Critically-acclaimed Quirky Independent Dark Comedies Based on A True Story with a Subtle Undertone" was close to one of them.

I loved Trik'R'Treat too btw. I remember how long it took to get released. I watch it every Halloween since I got the Blu-Ray.

I get it is not for everyone. Heck it's probabyl not for 90% of the general viewing population. It's a fugged up movie and will make you feel weird after watching. Immediately after watching it I actually texted a friend and said "WHATEVER YOU DO DON'T WATCH ANTICHRIST." And I meant it, he would probably hate the movie.

But it's far from shock for shocks sake, like for example Human Centipede 2.

I played Antichrist the other night and after the begining when i realized im watching Dafoes twig n berries slamming his wifes V my wife was like ..uh what r we watching? I said.... The greatest netflix movie ever!!!

Speaking of Dafoe..Last Temptation of Christ is amazing!! For those who have not seen it.

Even for the most religious, if you watch it in its entirity n not freak out in the middle you will be rewarded in a non preverted The Passion of Tourture Porn type way. In its supposed blaspheme it demonstrates the true sacrifice and faith that The Passion does not.

..and if that sounds too religiously..its a hoot to see Jesus take a human path of not dying for the humans and doing his capital J thang!

If you can sit through Antichrist and appreciate its dark depressed art film...then check out a quirky dark comedy drama: Me You And Everyone WeKnow... Hard to explain but good..just dark n awkward. More independent film school than Antichrist''s Artistic sensibilities cinematography.

Not on Netflix but equally as depressing is The Sweet Hereafter...a great film.

I see nothing at all artistic about a man cumming blood. But that's just me. I know there's some huge underlying thing about sex in the movie, I just hated it so much that I never cared to figure it out.

I've seen ads for Trick R Treat, Troll Hunter and Antichrist. Considered renting one or more but haven't yet.

I'm like a binge movie watcher. I'll go weeks without renting any and then one weekend rent half a dozen.

Get ready for "The Conjuring" this summer from James Wan. The trailer is creepy and it looks to be a great horror flick.
