the scariest film ever made
The second time, I found it well cheesy and faintly ridiculous.
but i agree with brainlove, if you know whats 'going down' its a bit daft, still scary, but daft.
but not THAT scary.
The Shining, Blair Witch, Don't look Now, The Wicker Man
Event Horizon is scary, with some genuniely brilliant horror, but some ridulous daftness
I've always imagined it as something similar to Starship Troopers for some reason, I think I may have misjudged the cover. Is it worth watching?
haven't seen it for years but I got it in HMV for £3 today
so i don't even know what's it's really about.
type films like WAZ, Hostel and the Saw franchise but I think it's still disturbing at points particularly (apologies if this is a spoiler) when they finally manage to decode the video.
it's about acute personal fears (albeit in a giant hi-tech sci-fi setting) whereas those Hostal/Saw movies are like 14yr old metal fans who think anything with guts in it is automatically bad-fucking-ass.
(the first Saw was actually alright)
but WAZ does largely play on personal fears and raises intriguing ethical/moral points.
speaking in latin scared the shit out of a fourteen year old me. speaking in latin in any horror film is always creepy as fuck though.
found it really scary
