    I long lost hope of horror movies ever making it again to the screen as a quality movie. The genre is pretty much dead being today just a teen magnet.

    Very rarely a jewel will come out. Often from Japan or Eastern Europe. Most of these movies never make it to the theaters anywhere else and end up being bastardized by these small studios, underpaid script writers, crap directors and even worse actors. The resulting Westernized version becomes a travesty.

    There's a few cool ones over the last few years:
    1. 28 Days Later
    2. Let the Right One In (Swedish Version)
    3. The Descent

    But yeah..not many and not enough

    Nice exceptions to the rule, indeed. Curious also the fact the "Let the Right One In" actually spawned one of the few English language remakes that doesn't entirely suck.

    I have high expectations for Saw 28 in 6D... which should be coming out within a year or so.

    The older I get, the less tolerance I have for movies such as this. That's just disturbing.

    make sure to tell me if it's good when you do see it, I'm holding out for Saw 42 in 11D, which will be out about a month after that

    Initially I thought the plot was gross, but now I think it's funny, and hope to see the movie soon.

    For a horror movie, I think joining 50,000 centipedes to make a killer humanoid would be more entertaining.

    Isn't this next saw supposed to be the "last" one. Or will they decide to chop some more people up.

    Yeah, "Final Chapter" really doesn't mean much. They can do prequels... they can do "the missing stories"... hell, they can blow off the entire "final chapter" nonsense and just continue forward like they didn't even say it. The Saw series ends when the grosses go down. It's not like they're gonna throw the ring into some lava and just be done with it.

    Very funny, yet very true. I guess its just too easy to milk such a flexible storyline.
