Check out this badass RJD2 song that heavily samples sounds and music from Suspiria: Weather People

Oh BTW I have a great one you guys have probably never seen that isn't well known. It's available on Instant queue now and I watched it last month and was very pleasantly surprised. It plays out like a Stephen King movie/novel. That kind of creepiness where you're thinking the whole time "Wtf was that!?" or "Wtf just happened". Of course it also comes with a crazy twist in the end. It creeped me the hell out lol.

It's called "Dead End" with Ray Wise as the lead.

Yeah, I actually went out and bought that on dvd after seeing it on cable. I thought it was awesome. Yet another one of those movies where you walk away asking questions though. To this day, I still wonder if the blonde broad was the Devil, and wtf was the deal with the castle?

Both are horror/suspense movies. The pacing in them is what drives you up the wall the most, and plays with your senses. By the end of the movie, you're climbing up the walls just dying to find out wtf the big deal, and or secret is because they've been putting you "on edge" the entire time. One is creepier though, and I believe its Suspiria, due to the style in which the director films.

Everyone is telling me to go for that as well. Im probably going to search through Netflix.

I know! The chick in the beginning.. that they just invite into the car. You could tell that bi*** was bad news! I would of driven off as fast as possible! Did it have that Stephen King feel in your opinion? We seem to have similar taste in movies. If you see any others on Netflix bump this thread. Have you seen Invasion of body snatchers or mad max? I just saved those.

Suspiria is actually part of a trilogy, and I use the word trilogy loosely. It's not really a trilogy like say...Back to the Future, more like the Man With No Name, where the same theme or symbolism is used. It goes Suspira, Inferno and then Mother of Tears

Start off with that to finish off the trilogy if you'd like.

The chick may have been bad news, but she was hot in that movie, so I can see how someone wouldnt want to say "no" to that.

To be honest, im kind of surprised that its a King production...it doesnt have that feel at ALL to me.


Maybe im just used to his 90s shit like Pet Cemetary, the Langoliers, and Creepshow. Things that he was involved with, but the direction on the films had a cheesy feel to them. And while Dead End was cheese as well, it was pretty damn good too....not saying the others werent good, but it didnt feel the same. I dont know...

And I saw the Invasion of the Body Snatchers on there, but havent watched it yet. Mad Max...I watched that 100 years ago...I need to rewatch, because I hardly remember it.


I recently watched Jim Hensen's the Dark Crystal. Awesome.

So none of the films have really anything to do with each other?

Right, because a zombie, battling a shark is awesome. It teeters on being "epic"

Don't even get me started. The Supiria soundtrack was done by an act called Goblin, and they have made a shit ton of awesome soundtracks for Italian movies.

I just watched it for the first time and damn, left quite an impression. I wasn't really impressed until the end, then it got me. If there is a feeling like this after I watch a movie, I know it was great...
And I don't even like film noir and dystopian setting.

i didn't read all of page two's replies, but didn't see anyone point out HOW AWESOME RUTGER HAUER WAS IN THIS MOVIE!




also of interest was that the GF from wall street who was also the mermaid in splash! played one of the replicants in a pretty interesting role. not sure if anybody here remembers that stuff, but whatever. also, the novella that the movie was based on has some very interesting themes and sideplots that we don't see in the movie:

- most animals are extinct or have had their numbers heavily reduced, so owning an animal and caring for it in public is like driving a porsche these days. the pressure is so great that if you can't afford a real animal, you buy a synthetic animal and pretend to care for it just like the real thing.

- when you wake up in the morning you walk over to a mood-modifying machine and dial in the mood that you want for the day. it doesn't fully satisfy, though, which is why rick deckard's wife tends to dial in moods of depression and anger.

- the concept of church and god has been replaced by an electronic empathy box that you grab the handles of and share a group experience of a christ-like figure walking up an endless hill being pelted by small rocks.
