Horror film-maker, Wes Craven, has died at the age of 76

www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-ca…

When I think of horror as a genre, Craven is one of those names that immediately springs to mind, which is a bit of a triumph as there are only really 3 of his movies that I really hold in high regard.
But what movies!
Nightmare on Elm Street is obviously one of them. Freddy is one of the all time great cinematic bogey men. I remember being at a party as a kid, the kind where your parents drag you to one of their friend’s places and which goes on into the late hours, so you’re told you have to sleep on the strange floor of a strange house? Anyway, the adults all sat down to watch all the Elm Street movies (there were only 3 at the time) back to back. All the kids got shooed off, put down to sleep in another room, but we heard the adults screaming at whatever they were watching. For years after, I really wanted to watch the movie. Oddly enough, I don’t remember it being disappointing when I finally did.
Scream followed the same horror/comedy formula as Elm Street, and is a wonderful time capsule of the 90s. I love the closing shot in it where the camera pans back to show the lonely looking house in the middle of rural California. For years I’ve been meaning to write something with such a setting.
Finally, Cursed; a somewhat forgotten werewolf movie from 2004, starring Christina Ricci and her massive forehead. I liked it because it didn’t have any of the bull-sh*t “tribal” tropes that have come to plague such movies. It was simply about the monsters and the curse in a modern, urban environment.

If you do draw a picture of Sally, I hope she's in booty shorts, she looks hawt in her new look. So many people hate the new look.....If I was in a heavy metal band I would want that as my tour train.

The only version of Amy I know is the one from the cartoon. I picked up ONE issue of the Archie comic, and that was enough.

I wish I was popular enough to have my stuff stolen by unfunny sites and passed around online.

Have you heard about the Overlord manga/anime? It looks good and it might take your mind off of the "Monster Mash" (I know it's "mush" but I like the song and the "Misfits")

The child-like bodies with the harpies makes sense physically speaking in a sense, but I think it would've worked just as well to give them bones with less density instead, but then again you'd have the problem of her bones being easily broken as a result.

I'm sure the author didn't get that far when designing Papi, but just a thought.

I actually like both the manga and the anime, but I don't watch for the tits so much as I do the comedy.

Also, later on, some 3-dimensionality is added to the characters, for instance: Turns out the reason Miia originally became the guy's homestay was literally just so she could fuck him for the sake of reproduction, at the urging of her own mother no less, but she eventually fell for him for real because of the fact he was genuine with her and didn't treat her like some freak of nature.

It's minimal, it's not substantial, but it's something.

I just watched 8 episodes of it.  I was only gonna watch one, but I kinda got sucked into it.  Maybe because I don't usually watch that stuff.

It was... OK.  I liked the art and animation.  Story was cliche as all hell and I never cared for the whole Harem genre, but the show has a nice look to it.

All in all, it's like hentai without the sex and full-on nudity.  To quote Tom Hanks: "I usually don't like my filth this clean."

I tell you one thing though, if they made an anime about the Non-Human assault team from episode 7 I'd be all over that.

It's been fairly faithful to the manga.  I prefer when the manga hints at the politics of the setting and reality of human/humanoid relationships, but it admittedly doesn't delve into that as often as I'd like.

There are definitely some elements that could be explored more -- for example, the Lamia and Harpy races *need* human men to continue their species.  Their entire species is incompatible with human culture, which ... frowns upon men getting kidnapped and kept as house husbands.  There's an interesting story there but they just don't go into it.

Still, I enjoy it for what it is.

Yeah, I think that was it's main failing.  It brought up some interesting ideas, but doesn't explore them.  Instead it lets them drop to tell the standard Harem story.  I want to see the rest of the world they've created.  It's why I find the assault team way more interesting.

Yep, but they also made good stuff like Psycho Pass and Cowboy Bebop

PS keep up the good work!
