For some reason, I keep thinking the frames you get for these are somehow going to be different than the ones I get from my own files.. but of course, same ones (duh).

Have you seen the 23:45 for NOES 2? I wrote it off at first, but on second glance I thought there was an odd appeal in its framing/negative space... or something.

Really enjoy this feature..

Love the nerdy dude with the half-fro...really adds to the shot.

I cant believe anyone would think Penelope Sudrow is a better looking chick than me just because she had the big scene where Freddy smashed her head through the T.V. screen.

This is far and away my favorite Heather Langenkamp/Arthur Ashe horror film.

Christopher wins! :D

Ben, I haven't gotten to NoES 2 with this yet...I think it's hilarious that you're essentially "reading ahead"!

could this easily be confused for a screen cap of "just the 10 of us"

BloodPepsi said...

Oh you don't know the half of it Stacie! It's intensely weird/geeky in the face of all reasonable explanation. ...sigh...

Okay:

**** SPOILERS???????****


I'm just sayin': Halloween III and The Fog are kind of perfect; Creepshow and Pieces will make you want to punch a wall; as I mentioned, Nightmare On Elm Street 2 has an odd, artsy appeal in its "use of" negative space and lighting; The Shining has some excellent foreshadowing; and Slumber Party Massacre has an ironically funny, sort of quiet domestic charm to it.... I think that's all I've done so far..

..oh MAN I'm THE WORST!. It's okay, I can own it ... :/

You need to stop! It's like opening Christmas presents early. I've got all those movies, but it's going to take me the rest of my liiiiiiife to get to everything!

BloodPepsi said...

Haha! But I put these ----->******** in front of my alert and everything! :)

Okay, Stacie. I'm putting the pause button down and slowly.....walking.....away.....
