Really? That bad? I absolutely refused to see Pink Panther, but was looking forward to Silent Hill. So far from other reviews, they tend to agree that it's a better movie if you played the games. I havn't played any of the games myself, so now I'm a bit worried. What didn't you like about it?
Yeah, and IMDb gives it a 7.4 rating with over 1,100 votes.


That's a lot beter than any of Uwe Boll's adaptations.

I saw Slither.  It was quite enjoyable, but you have to be in the right mood for it.  Unfortunately, horror/comedy doesn't always work well and this movie is full of cheese.  But sometimes you want cheese, and this movie does quite well then.

I finally got around to watching A Tale of Two Sisters.  Very interesting and a well made movie, but I'm not sure I would call it horror.

It seems like "Halloween 9" will be a prequel:

A ninth Halloween movie is being planned - as a prequel to the cult horror franchise. Plans to make Halloween: The Missing Years were shelved when producer Moustapha Akkad died in last year's terrorist attacks in Jordan, but writer Jake Wade Wall has confirmed to moviehole.net that the series is back on. Wall tells the site that the prequel will focus on the life of serial killer Michael Myers as a young man, before he was placed in a mental institution. Wall says, "I've been hired three different times for it (the film)... It looks like it's finally set to go. I know that they're (studio executives) in the process of nailing down a really big director but I haven't been able to figure out who it is yet."

The Descent would be a good option, one of the best horrors I have seen in a while... the unedited ending gives it an extra edge.

I agree, Mal.  It was a great movie that changed the odds when it cast all women.  Good call there.

As for Halloween, I'll know more tomorrow.  Happy
