I think Pans Labyrinth is a well directed movie - but i think otherwise it's pretty mediocre.
Cronos i thought was straight bland as fuck. I don't understand how tons of people in the cult film community think cronos and Martin are the best vampire films

I also don't understand the hype behind Argento and Romero.
I think Suspiria is pretty - but otherwise it's whatever. I think deep red is boring.
I love Day of the Dead - but Dawn is just slightly above good, not amazing, and Night is boring

I think you lack the taste, simple as that.
I remember your topic about Requiem for Dream, so im not surprised.

I don't think you should critique 'cult movies', cause you doesn't seem to understand them and don't have much artistic vision to appreciate that aspect of these movies

Let the right one in
Fright night
Near dark

I also love once bitten, even if it's a bad film by most standards.

I've seen Fellini's 8 once. I don't know why it's called one of the best movies of all time. I found it uninteresting and very tedious.

Sigs are rather pointless, except if it's to showcase animation and images.

LOL
most of the movies i listed are hardly cult. They're as beloved by phillistines as cult/exploitation fans.
Requiem is straight trash btw
Edit: and not good trash, like i spit on your grave, ms.45, toxic avenger, street trash, etc.
Trash trash like it's exploitative and unintelligent - but simultaneously takes itself too seriously for how shallow it is

well that is a rad list, near dark is near the top of my vamp list, but so is cronos. clever use of the vamp device and ron Perlman. win win.

It really felt like I was just missing something tbh. There were entire scenes I couldn't figure out any purpose for.

Plus the lack of music put me off.
