LONDON. - The British Museum in London mounted a unique film festival, in which Dracula, the Mummy and other horror monsters shared with the pharaohs of ancient Egypt that are in that room.

At 15 pounds per session, Londoners and tourists will review some of the most valued horror films of the mid-twentieth century in a "sinister", which organizers are responsible for promoting to encourage viewers to attend the meetings disguised looking "Gothic".

The relationship between the horror and the British no accident: something grim appearance of the museum building inspired director Alfred Hitchcock to film there in 1929 his film "Blackmail".

Some of the scenes from "Night of the Demon", one of the projections of the weekend are also filmed in the building, as well as some sequences of the film "Tale of the Mummy", which recovered in 1998 the classic story English Terence Fisher and the demonic "Possession" (2002).

Uggg! I'm sick of Asian horror movies.

My guess is that the best Asian horror movies get distributed outside of Asia or make it in into the English language media but the other 90% of those formulaic crap movies, you are lucky enough to be spared from.
In Thailand, there are the ghost of the month and the real tortue porn movies ("Saw" is comparitively lightweight and has something of a plot). Japan has the laughably, partially animated stuff like the "Deathnote" series.
"you'll find the Asian movies to be much better at horror films than Hollywood is." Maybe if you're talking about the top ten percent of Asian movies.

Best movies of 2003

I haven't seen Cold Mountain or Monster so with those films exampt:
1. Finding Nemo
(This movie succeeds in every area, story, characters, acting and visual execution. Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres are perfect. Get rid of the Randy Newman soundtrack and the film is flawless.)
2. The Weather Underground
(A great documentary on the college protesters aka "The Weatherman" who tried to overthrow a corrupt U.S. government in the late 60's and 70's that was committing genocide in southeast asia. While they turned out to be right about Vietnam, their tactics were as much in question as Nixon's

Don't Let The Movies Kill Dead Space

Dead Space 2 is a crazy good game, and the survival horror series is building up a sizable fan base. Know what that means?
There are rumblings of movie possibilities. The games already got the animated and graphic novel treatment as well as toys. So a big screen version seems to be the logical next step!
Dead Space co-creator Ian Milham tells the BBC, "We would love to have a live action film and we've had a lot of discussion." But Milham says that one of the reasons that Dead Space still exists and is still popular is that the developers "made sure to do everything right"
