I am not so sure about this movie vacancy. Reviews are not that good.

vacancy seems like a nice movie, by the way you are talking about it. So I guess the next time when I watch a movie online, this one would be on my list. 

Horror movies give me enough excitement to have an adrenaline rush.

I am fan of horror movies. This year I haven't really enjoyed any horror movies, but I am awaiting the sequel to PARANORMAL ACTIVITY to be shown later this year. The trailer isn't really promising, and I don't think it could surpass the first one, but it's still worth a try. I'm also waiting for THE BLIND -- a Korean Thriller movie that's not horror, but I saw the trailer and I think it's promising. 

Koreans are good at making horror and thriller movies.

Hi Ronymark,

I've watched Splice and yes, it was pretty thrilling!! I will try to watch Vacancy though. :)

I love this forum, I can be up to date with movies and stuff.

Thank you, Vits! That's the point Burn and I were trying to make: Yes, "Coraline" had aspects of horror (as Burn put it, they could scare anyone who is of preteen age), but in the end, the movie is pure fantasy to its very core.

I really don't want to be "that guy," but it's not up for debate. A lot of other issues about film are, but not what genre a movie is. It's a fact, not an opinion. Regardless of the amount of suspense, all SAW movies are horror. The book CORALINE mixes fantasy with horror, but the movie is more of a fantasy.

I'm saying the first Saw isn't a horror movie. I don't care about the others. I'm talking about the first one only. How many times do I have to say that? 

Second, I don't label genres incorrectly. I'm not saying Coraline is only a horror film. It's also fantasy, with a mix of adventure and horror. Even the book of Coraline is said to be a horror fantasy novel.

MWG,despite whatever Burn and Michaels say,you're entitled to your own opinion...on whether you liked or not a movie.But if you can't even label them with the right genre...and it's not a matter of opinion.Movies have specific genres.

You won't be a good critic because you mistake those genres,but you won't be because you think the genre depends on something as trivial as the villain's weapon.

Like I said before,the SAW movies are supposed to be scary.You say they're not horror because they didn't really scare you.That's not because they're not horror,but because they fail at what they're trying by focusing too much on gore.A lot of non-horror movies have scary moments and/or scenes,that means nothing.GRAN TORINO is a drama with a lot of comic relief,but nobody would call it a comedy.

Um, no Mister White -- there's not a shred of dread in that movie, until some time near the middle (or end of the second act). And the tone of the last 10 minutes of a movie doesn't influence the overall genre of a movie -- the FIRST 10 minutes do. 

I'm calling it yet again, Coraline = semi-dark fantasy.

Well, I was just talking about the first Saw film only. I do agree that the sequels turned into horror films. And Coraline had an underlying sense of dread, once she found the other world. It's not that the last 10 minutes are scary. Everything builds up to the climax. 

And although this isn't related, the ending of Kill Bill Vol. 2 made me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

I'll just jump in here for a second. Mr. Armond White, I mean MWG, I can see the FIRST (and ONLY the first) Saw as a thriller. But after that, it's all downhill horror, blood and guts galore, a staple of that genre. Coraline is not horror. Hell, it's not even a thriller. It's a semi-dark fantasy movie. Yes, the third act had a few jump scares that would make a 4 year go hide under his bed, but calling it a flat out horror? Please! If Coraline counts as horror because of the last 15 or 20 minutes, than I guess Kill Bill Vol 2 is a family film because it features a mother and her daugther in the end. I'm pretty sure Michaels doesn't respect you as a critic because you have no idea what you're talking about. I know that's why I take your opinion seriously.

Thank you, Burn. It's like you're the other half my brain, if it was written by Kevin Smith or some other writer who loves f-bombs.

Yep. I'm trying hard to argue my case but it looks like it won't do any good. Saw has detectives trying to find a serial killer. Hence, it's a crime thriller. The characters locked up trying to get out just adds mystery to the whole thing. It doesn't scream horror at all. Even in the third act, you have a hostage situation with the killer having a gun, not a knife. How is that a horror film? Seriously, it's no different than your usual CSI episode. Coraline is basically like a darker version of Alice in Wonderland, and it's creepy as hell. The entire third act is like a nightmare waiting to explode. Again, it's just my opinion. I'm not saying it's a fact.

So you don't respect me as a critic because you don't agree with what genre I label certain movies? It's really not a big deal as you make it out to be. Also, there are plenty of horror films that don't have blood and plenty of non-horror films that have buckets of blood. I thought Zodiac was more horrifying than Saw but I still count that as a thriller because it was about a crime mystery. The killer in Zodiac has a knife, like a slasher, yet people don't see it as a horror film. Anyway, genres are ambiguous and each person can think a movie is a certain genre. There's never really a distinct answer and you guys shouldn't make a big deal out of it.

You see why I don't respect him as a critic? A children's claymation movie without any blood counts as horror. But Saw, which was torture porn with buckets of blood, that was just a thriller. The kid makes no sense.
