The Oscars are showcasing Horror Movies

Post by Laurah213 on Mon Mar 08, 2010 12:23 am

Maybe someday we can get some Horror Movies up for an Academy Award (besides for make up)

It had some great scenes from some great movies!!!!

True about having the Twi kids introduce it, but it is nice to see Horror get some good press, bc some Horror is great, and it should be known about.

Did anyone else name off every movie shown during their tribute? Halfway through, my wife told me to shut up. Laughing

Heh... if they did it like the Grammys cover metal, I'm sure they smurfed it up.

It wasn't as bad as Grammy Metal, but it wasn't as good as it could have been.

Maybe now that we have had a female director win for best director, we can get some good Horror movies into the running for awards besides make up/sound effects/etc

First, Laura, we have to get some horror movies made that deserve those types of honors. There really haven't been that many good ones lately.

Good point... too many remakes for my taste as well.

Hey there have been some great movies over the years, but I honestly think we need to go away from blood and gore and work more with sound, lights, shadows, etc to create the fear.

I was just talking last night about The Blair Witch Project, where you really never saw anything bad, gory etc, but it was scary as HELL!!

Oh well, maybe someday I will get an Oscar for best Dirctor of a Horror movie -- fingers crossed
