Completely forgot about this guy until this thread came up. Maybe 10 years ago or so I watched a string of his films. First was Susperia and didn't the praise but powered through some more and finally clicked.

As a director Argento makes George Lucas look great for performances he gets out of his actors (it's so bad I wondered if some were dubbed Italian actors). Once you get past that (which is a big hurdle) the style was at times pretty excellent for some moments. Remember Deep Red and Tenebre were my favorites. No idea why I stopped but Opera was next I intended to watch.

I'm relatively new to his work - He even has a newer one than this one I'm currently watching - which is (again) 2007 - I believe it's a 3D Vampire film. :-)

Anybody a fan of the old Hammer Horror flicks? I love 'em. Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and a boatload of big titted British chicks. I like the earlier ones the best; the were low budget but they had a lot of class and tons of atmosphere.
I'm excited about these Hammer Horrors

All the stuff of his I have seen is the old stuff maybe pre 1985.

Have a more concise summary of what I remember of his now. Would feel like you are watching a bad B movie for long stretches with very bad acting and not at all interesting setup. Then after you wait through that shit some excellently shot scene (almost always death) would turn up and seem some brilliant director took over.

I'm just dabbling into his work now and I really gather the same already. hahaha

Horror is a genre I used to really like when younger but kinda stopped following closely and not sure why. Have a bunch of the popular mainstream and indie ones in the past few years in my queue but never seem to get around to it.

H20 was really good- loved that one. For me, it's up there with the first and second.

The fourth and fifth with his niece are watchable.

Season of the Witch, the one with Paul Rudd and Resurrection were all shit.

I saw a "remastered" version of the original - but not a reboot by JJ abrams???
IIRC it was either on HBO or Cinemax during the free weekend last week

Would you Rather was a good flick, but all I could concentrate on for most of the movie was how fucking HOT Sasha Grey is.
