I used to hate Suspiria until I stopped worrying about whatever the hell the plot was supposed to be and just let the visuals and the music hit me. Movie improved DRAMATICALLY.
Inferno was less effective, but it did have a man killed by having cats thrown at him. Can't beat that.
Anyone know the name of that 3-disc Goblin set that had the theme for Suspiria and the rest of their Argento work (Tenebrae, etc?)
And yes, I wish net piracy was unneccesary. *L* But I do support it for no other reason than a good mix CD will turn people on to music they'd never have considered listening to before. I always try to put at least one track on there I think they'd like that they didn't ask for as a wild card.
9 times out of 10 it works and they ask for more. To me that's better salesmanship with regard to music than anything record companies have been doing and it doesn't have that $20 and above price point on it either.

I loved Sleepaway Camp. It is *so* the best bad horror movie ever made. 75% of the movie seems to just be about camping and the deaths are so fucking ludicrous. The second wasn't as good, but the outhouse death was funny, and building the entire movie around the fact that Springsteen's sister is in it was amusing. Are there 3 or 4 in the series? How is the rest of the series and what fun xtras are in the boxed set?

See, that's where I went wrong. Damn trying to figure out the plot.

Yeah, saying that you like Last Action Hero was rather mean, and I'm sorry for saying that about you.
Figuring out the plot of an Argento film can be quite damning on the brain. If you think you might like his stuff though, start out with 'Deep Red' or 'Bird With the Crystal Plummage'. Suspiria makes a little more sense if you also see Inferno. All I can do is pray Argento will get up off his ass and make the final film before he dies, because I really want to see where he want's to finish this at.
Sleepaway Camp- Commentary with the director, Angela (gasp), and the webmaster, plus a theatrical trailer.
Sleepaway Camp 2: Unhappy Campers- Commentary with the director, writer, and another webmaster (Springsteen was apparently too big to come back.) Also has behind the scenes footage, outtakes, still galleries, a theatrical trailer, and a teaser trailer for SC3.
Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland- Commentary with the same people as SC2, behind the scenes stuff, outtakes, still galleries, theatrical trailer, and deleted additional "gore" footage.
The three movies are packaged inside their own snapcase inside the box (looks like a first aid kit) with a Sleepaway Camp Diary which is basically a few summaries and some production notes all written by the two webmasters. There's also an extra DVD packaged in a paper sleeve with production footage and a trailer from the unfinished Sleepaway Camp 4: The Survivor. After a quick look at the trailer, you'll know why it was unfinished. Bad bad. Like, "Blood Lake" bad.
All for $24.95 at your local Best Buy.
...this is the music forum, isn't it? Uh, the music in the movies is good. There.
As far as Cerebus goes... wasn't that little kid in Last Action Hero just the most annoying shit ever? He was the real Comic Book Guy.
I *tried* to give Suspiria a chance. Watching it just made me feel stupid for not understanding what exactly was going on. I dunno.
I really like "Love Letter to Japan" but the rest of the album tends to slide by without me really noticing. The only other one I have is the new Neko Case -- good album; I don't like it as much as Fox Confessor or Furnace Room.
