    Re: Film 17

    Can I just be the first to say that I recently watched The Autopsy of Jane Doe.
    Really good, tight little horror film. just over an hour and twenty in length and for the first 30mins you could be watching CSI or something like that, then the horror starts creeping in.
    no jump scares, just creepy and unsettling.

    This is what Stephen King had to say about it, which made me seek it out.

    Stephen King ‏@StephenKing Jan 11
    THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE: Visceral horror to rival ALIEN and early Cronenberg. Watch it, but not alone.

    Hope you enjoy it, its not really up there with Alien but its the best horror I've seen in ages, and I'm a fan of horror, just fed up with jump scares.

    Just Googled it, looks like it has favourable reviews, no I haven't seen it. Hadn't heard of it till you mentioned it, might take a look.

    Same as me, a few weeks ago I found a thread on Reddit that listed a bunch of horror films that didn't rely on jump scares and ended up watching quite a few but the only one that stood out was "1408", based on a Stephen King short story.

    I've still got a horror film from that list called "Stir of Echoes" to watch.

    Also, I remember watching a good horror film a good few years ago that had (yum) Nicole Kidman in it. Can't remember what it was called though.

    Just Googled Stir of Echoes and realised I did actually watch it. Not too memorable a film as you can imagine.

    Watched Hell or High Water that Welshyoot recommended in the Film 16 thread. Really good film, some great dialogue.

    I watched Bone Tomahawk with Kurt Russell, that's sort of a horror and it was pretty good. It's on Netflix.

    I thought "Silence" was good but my Missus hated it and said it was boring.
    But then again she thinks Amy Schumer is funny.

    Stumbled on Saving Mr Banks the other day. What a pleasant surprise, thoroughly enjoyed it! Made me want to try Mary Poppins for the first time since I was about 5.

    That lasted about 5 minutes

    Saving Mr Banks was excellent. I didn't expect to enjoy it - but I was totally absorbed by the story and the performances. Great writing too.

    Seen La La Land 3 times in the past week, an absolutely gorgeous film that takes you on a journey and forget about all the shit going on in the world for two hours...

    I had free tickets for a preview screening of this and it was billed as a western.

    So I went with my old mother.

    Error.

    Yep

    By the end though we were just laughing.

    It does well at building tension all throughout it.

    Saw a film on Netflix last night called "Unbroken" about Olympian Louis Zamperini's struggle for survival after a plane crash into the Pacific in World War 2, 47 days adrift in a raft followed by 2 years in brutal Japanese prisoner of war camps.

    Written by the Coen Brothers and directed by Angelina Jolie. After the film I was amazed about how much this guy went through I looked into how true this story was and found that it is pretty much a 100% depiction of his experiences.

    Well worth a watch.
