Just saw this remake of the classical horror movie today...

For starters, I think it was a lot more scary and gory than the original. This has to be one of the ugliest, scariest and goriest horror movies I have seen. It almost wants you to leave the cinema half-way through, or throw up. Certainly not for the faint hearted. ;)

If you enjoyed Jeepers Creepers, you'll like this one. But it is far more scary and actually realistic -- plus with some good acting. I never want to visit Texas backwater areas now... :lol

I saw the origonal and thot it was not particularly frightening and kinda corny. Fortunately I live in one of the built up areas of Texas and not one of those backwaters. One sure wouldn't want to beak down in one of those places as there's no telling who (or what) one might meet!;)

The original movie scared the **** out of me. That was the most repulsive movie I've ever seen (with the original Candyman coming in a close second).

That story is based on the real life of Edward Gein (I think that's how his name is spelled) and it took place in the midwest somewhere, not in Texas. The real man was equally as evil. *shiver*

I read all about it in a great book called The Encyclopedia of Serial Killers. Good book. :D

I suppose the fact that the special effects, if they could be called that, were so noticebly primitive (and thus not realistic) that did it for me. It was made in the early 70's after all and it shows.

Edward Theodore Gein was born to George and Augusta on 27 August 1906, in a small town called La Crosse, in Wisconsin. He had a brother Henry, four years his senior. Life for the brothers was hard, their father was a drunk, who was henpecked by their intimidating, religious, mother until he had enough liquor inside him to return her taunts with violence. Edward was a quiet and obedient son, whom Augusta favoured. All Edward wanted was a little of her attention each day in return for his total devotion.

When Edward started school, Augusta sent him with his brother to the local primary school. Edward not being the most attractive child was the subject of children's jibes.

When Edward was 8 years old his mother nagged his father into buying a 275 acre farm in Plainfield, Wisconsin. The farm was 6 miles outside town and surrounded by woodland.

One summers day, Augusta and George were working inside an wooden outhouse that George had built to store meat and groceries. Augusta had made it very clear that Henry and Edward were never allowed to enter. Edward had accepted this, and had neither the inclination or the courage to disobey her.

This day however, Edward tired of waiting for his mother peeked through a crack in the door. The sight that met him was not what he was expecting. His mother and father were slaughtering a pig. At seeing this, it is said, Edward became sexually aroused and had his first orgasm.

On April 1st 1940 George Gein died of pneumonia, leaving Augusta with Henry aged 38, and Edward 34. Four years later Henry died in a forest fire. The local sheriff noted that Henry had some injuries to his head, but upon examination it was determined that these had not been the cause of death. A point of interest is that only his head was seriously burned.

In December 1945 Augusta Gein died in Hospital, having been ill for some time following a stroke. She was buried on 31 December. It was around 18 months later that Edward started to visit the local graveyards at night.

In an interview whilst under investigation in 1957, Gein stated to Earl Kileen, the District Attorney, that after his mother died he began to have strange visions. He confessed to wanting to see a woman's body. So he went to the cemetery to talk to his mother. He then dug up the body of a woman who had just been buried, and took it home. He stated that after that, he would watch the newspapers for obituaries of woman and go and open their graves. He did this for around 10 ten years, and raided many many graves.

During this time Gein became virtually a total recluse. It has been said that Edward had been experiencing signs of agoraphobia.

On December 9 1954, Mary Hogan, a 54 year old tavern owner of Pine Grove, Wisconsin disappeared. She was never seen alive again.

On November 16 1957, Edward Geins farmhouse was entered by Law Enforcement Officers. They were investigating a disappearance of another woman. They were then joined by the Pine Grove Police, who were still working on the case of Mary Hogan.

Edward Gein was locked up while the officers entered the farmhouse. Led by Sheriff Arthur Schley they found what appeared to be masks made out of human faces. There was also many heads, some stuffed with newspaper, some soaked in oil. The police thought that the oil was to keep the skin from decaying. Then in a brown paper bag a deputy found the head of Mary Hogan.

The Sheriff from nearby Portage County was convinced that Gein was a mass murderer, saying that even though the masks had traces of formaldehyde on them, so did Mary Hogan's and they knew he killed her. He also raised the point that Gein could not have moved the heavy headstones to get to the caskets.

The Portage County D.A. Kileen then ordered a body of Mrs Eleanor Adam's, who was in the grave next to Augusta Gein exhumed. They found the casket had been placed in a much larger box starting two feet underground. They concluded that the grave had been tampered with. They conceded that Gein would not have had much trouble digging up the casket if the grave had been freshly dug.

Other things reported to have been found at the house included the genitalia of many women (which he kept in salt); a can of Doctor Pepper containing congealed liquid believed to be blood; a belt made of nipples; a skull made into a soup bowl (Gein claimed to have got the idea from a Norwegian custom); and a mobile made of noses. There were also lampshades and chair seats made from human skin.

I have read that the fridge was stocked with human organs. The sensationalists of the day claim that Gein would eat them. However, when asked about cannibalism Gein is quoted as saying
" Eating the flesh and drinking the blood? ..... I never felt capable of doin' that. That's a catholic thing isn't it? I don't think my mother would have approved."

On November 22 1957, Edward Gein stood before Judge Herbert A Bunde. He was charged with robbery and a $10 000 bail set. The murder charges were held off until his sanity was proved.

The Judge determined that Gein should be held at Central State for 30 days, for an evaluation. And on 23 December 1957 Judge Bunde announced that the psychiatrists had declared Gein insane. He was committed to Central State and stayed there until 1968, when he was found fit to stand trial. He was charged with first degree murder, but his lawyer put in the defence of insanity again and was found to be insane again. He returned to Central State.

Edward Gein was said to be a model prisoner and was well liked by the staff. In 1978 Central state was turned into a prison so Gein was moved to the Mental Health Institute, Madison, Wisconsin. On 26 July 1984 Edward Gein died of heart and respiratory failure, he was suffering with cancer. He died aged 77. He was laid to rest in the only available plot in Plainfield - next to his mother Augusta Gein.

What is that Lorenzo-creature?! :eek

He is a "German" the multi-cultist have genetically engineered out of their unhealthy philosophy. It is their goal to replace all Germans, for that matter all Europeons, with the "Lorenzo" model or something similar.

All in all, would seem a lot easier if the multi-cults would simply leave the natural populations alone and as they are, but that's one of the few things they are good at, destruction. "Lorenzo" is simply an example of the "expression" of multi-culturalism. Isn't he/she/it beautiful? :|

Would it be a true horror movie without the cheese? LOL

I thought it was pretty good. Not very scary though. I like TCM "the new breed" the best :D hehe.

Even more amazing was "House of 1000 Corpses" -totally tasteless, ridiculous, but REALLY damn cool. It's all about "Otis" :love

I thought the original was kind of cheesy, the only part that made me take notice was the sudden appearance of leatherface when he bashed them in the head with the sledgehammer and they fell to the ground quivering. Now that rocked. Kind of like the part where Hannibal is cooking that guy's brain and feeding it to him... that was the most astonishing thing I've ever seen in a movie, I was freaking out.

The new one sounds interesting. The guy who directed it is German, and he said he was going for a more realistic approach instead of the silly gory stuff. I also want to see Jessica Biel shake her moneymaker. :naughty

Yeah! I really liked that one. It was intense, and things just kept getting darker. Effects were well done and the acting was good. I think that little boy made that movie. "I wanna play with you!" *sinister baby laugh*

Probably the best translation of a King book. Most of them start off with a strong theme but quickly fade and get boring.

I'm always terrified by deformed and insane people. My worst nightmare is to be chased by sociopathic midgets with frontal lobe damage, and zombies. Zombies really freak me out. The remake of Night of the Living Dead was horrifying... "they're coming to get you, Barbara..." :eek

And Candyman! Didn't anyone here see Candyman?? I watched it many years go with the little sister of my boyfriend (boyfriend at that time -no longer). If I remember correctly, the psychokiller in that movie is a Negro! Now that is really freakin' scary! I was about 19 at the time, his sister was about 16, and we were both so scared after watching it that we made everyone in the house (= me, my boyfriend, his three sisters, his brother, his brother-in-law, his parents, and the two dogs -Baby and Isabeau) sleep in the den together... with the lights on. I swore that I'd never watch that movie again and I never have!

I never watched Candyman (nor heard of it), but it sounds devestating. What did it for me was this film about Gargoyles when I was about eight. This Gargoyle beast literally fell through the roof of this building these folks were in and then it was all mayhem.

Children should not watch movies about Gargoyles.

I'm better, the flashbacks have ceased, for now.;)

My condolenseces Sig. ;) They ought to maybe reconsider showing those movies in the morning, during daylight. By night it's all forgotten.

I forgot to mention this Bermuda Triangle movie. I was about seven or so Barbara Eden played this woman on a small yacht with engine problems in the BT. One by onethe crew members would be possessed by some force that would cause them to suicide. During all that this priest comes floating in on a light air plane wing and is taken aboard; apparently his plane had been brought down by the BT. He attempted to fight this evil force with all his spiirtual wares but he too is overcome and self destructs. That's a real downer when a priest gets broken.

Anyhow, at the end, Barbara is all alone and is rescued by a Coast Guard chopper. She's hauled aboard and the chopper starts heading back to dry land. But before they get far, this evil look comes into Barbara's eyes, and whatever this evil entity is, it jumps from her to the pilot flying the chopper. He immediately puts the chopper into a dive, and his co-pilot can't stop him no matter what he tries. The chopper disappears into the ocean at a ninty degree angle. That's the end.

I don't think I even want to get into the Omen movie that had that two headed, presumably Babalonian, light creature that appeared on that guys bed at the end. I still gotta sleep! :-O ;) That was freaky!

Didn't they remake that once already with the Negro hero (the same guy who played the Candyman actually :D)? That sucked.

Besides, they walk really slow, what's the big threat? And one can live out their homocidal fantasies free of any repercussions. :D

I liked the Return of the Living Dead series better, it was more ghoulish and freaky. "BRAAAINNS! MOOORE BRAAAINS!" Now that got to me when I was younger. Part 3 even had a romantic twist, which was interesting.

They're making a new one called Dawn of the Dead http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0363547/ with my favorite hottie Lindy Booth (another good reason I like Canada :)).

They always kill her off too early! She's way too cute for that! She should at least go halfway.

Polley is cute too though, she'll probably be the heroine. She played an awesome "neo-nazi" role in one movie.

The Negro factor is a bit high, but 3 really hot Nordish babes in it too! It looks to be a living dead movie on a larger scale, which is cool, and the dead look very energized and ravenous!

Yeah, it's the ghetto version of Friday the 13th/Nightmare on Elm Street. In part 2 they explain his history, in such a Judaized fashion, that he haunts the living because he was persecuted by racists and in love with a beautiful blonde. :D

:giggle That's the best worst nightmare I've ever heard! Now would these midgets be sociopathic because of the frontal lobe damage or would they be independent conditions? It's what makes the distinction of whether they will hack or whether they will slash ;)

Just imagine if those midgets looked like this guy below and limped as they ran after you...yet could run suprisingly fast despite their limping...

That was a really unfortunate case, though, and it was really heart-rending. When I was a kid I saw a clip of the movie on TV and I was so freaked out that I cried.

Slayer has a song dedicated to Mr. Gein: Dead Skin Mask.

(spoken)
How I’ve waited for you to come
I’ve been here all alone
Now that you’ve arrived
Please stay a while
And I promise I won’t keep you long
I’ll keep you forever]

Graze the skin with my finger tips
The brush of dead cold flesh pacifies [sings ’appease’] the means
Provoking images delicate features so smooth
A pleasant fragrance in the light of the moon

Dance with the dead in my dreams
Listen to their hallowed screams
The dead have taken my soul
Temptation’s lost all control

Simple smiles elude psychotic eyes
Lose all mind control rationale declines
Empty eyes enslave the creations
Of placid faces and lifeless pageants

In the depths of a mind insane
Fantasy and reality are the same

Graze the skin with my finger tips
The brush of dead warm flesh pacifies the means
Incised members ornaments on my being
Adulating the skin before me

Simple smiles elude psychotic eyes
Lose all mind control rationale declines
Empty eyes enslave the creations
Of placid faces and lifeless pageants

Dance with the dead in my dreams [hello? hello mr gein? ]
Listen to their hollowed screams [mr gein? ]
The dead have taken my soul [lemme out of here mr gein]
Temptation’s lost all control [mr gein? I don’t wanna play anymore
Mr gein]
[dance with the dead in my dreams [mr gein, it’s not any fun anymore,]
Listen to their hollowed screams [i don’t want to play anymore mr gein]
The dead have taken my soul [mr gein? lemme out of here mr gein]
Temptation’s lost all control] [lemme out, lemmmmeee oouuuuuuttt!!]
