Wow.

Last night I watched one of the most intense, nasty horror movies I've seen in a long, long time: Inside. This is the best horror film, IMO, since 2003's High Tension. I should have a review of it up on my movie blog later this week (along with several other films I've been skimping on). Both are foreign, of course--the US makes mostly crappy horror movies.

Also coming up: sometime, probably next week, I'll have the pleasure(?) of watching and reviewing what has been said to be the single most notorious film ever made: Salo. I'm almost afraid to watch the thing based on what I've read--seriously. Meh, I'll watch it anyway.

I also just bought the director's cut of Frontier(s), which I also hear is pretty brutal. Fun movie-watchin' times ahead!

I've seen high tension a number of times - in English & in French. *Great* horror flick

I haven't seen Salo, though I have read the book it's based on.

If it's not even half as nasty as de Sade's work then you're in for quite a ride.

Yeah, I think it's going to be a tough one to sit through. And this is coming from a guy who has seen a number of notorious films: Cannibal Holocaust, Irreversible, I Spit On Your Grave (I own this one!), etc.

When I watch it and put up a review, I'll be sure to make a blog post linking to it. :)
