what the fuck is a fornicus?  the hell raiser rip off guy?

LOL  he had a sad face.  lmao  like, man, I would’ve loved to let my box open you up and shred off your skin.  *sigh*

That movie was fuckdiculously well made.

And yes the characters were right outta scooby doo, but really, who doesnt love scooby doo?

I liked the part where the virgin is violently getting her ass kicked and the company is just talking, laughing celebrating…

The asian ghost was freaky lmao.  damn dead asians get my ass every time.

So I saw the movie, there were parts where I was geniunely terrified and did the whole hand over the eye but peeping through fingers thing.  Went to bed fine.

Who had nightmares about redneck zombies in her house?  ME.

I didn’t think it was scary at all, but really funny. He did have massive sad face.

I DID have a nightmare though about a Deadpool like mercernary coming into the house… that was weird and kind of not relevant

But yea, I dunno , it was kind of like Scooby doo… (other than obvious shaggy)

Funny thing about Pinhead… that’s the not the first time I had a Clive Barker nightmare.  It was after I read the Damnation Game.

But yea …. I also thoroughly enjoyed the Unicorn with the magical music playing

That is the most amazing list I have ever seen. I loved it when I saw it in the movies!  And even more at the end, when you got to see them all!

I KNOW!… thoughI had to wonder what Kevin was when I saw it.

At first I thought he was like Chucky… but maybe he’s more like Jason.

He doesn’t address “The Huron” either.  I tried to look it up, but only came up with this:

but this part is interesting:

The Huron believed that the chief cause of disease and death was a monstrous serpent, that lived under the earth. By touching a tuft of hair, a feather, or a fragment of bone, with a portion of his flesh or fat, the sorcerer imparted power to it of entering the body of his victim, and gradually killing him. It was an important part of the doctor’s function to extract these charms from the vitals of his patient.–Ragueneau, Relation des Huron, 1648, 75.
