  1. No doubt horror afiscianados have heard of Mario Bava,  Dario Argento,  Lucio Fulci,  Michele Soavi,  Lamberto Bava,  etc. 

    But have they heard of Pupi Avati (The House With Laughing Windows)? Maybe not the Generation Yers/Millennials raised on Scream and Saw. Well,  he happens to be my favorite contributor to Italian horror ever. 

    He revisited the horror genre with Zeder (1983), another masterpiece that bears some similarities to Stephen King`s Pet Semetary but they were both released the same year. Hmm. But beware, this film was released in America in a cut version under the title of Revenge Of The Dead. This is the original uncut version uploaded on youtube.  Enjoy!

     

  2. Pupi Avati`s The House With Laughing Windows (1976), commonly considered a giallo at the tail end of the subgenre`s height,  the film actually has alot of gothic elements too.  IMO,  one of the finest horror movies ever to represent Italy cinema.  A slowburner, but never a dull moment with a ending that is oh so rewarding. 

    Please one movie recommendation per a post,  my recommendations may include a full movie stream if not at least a trailer. 

  3. Spoken like a true fan.  It was a pleasure reading this post. 

    We ain't no fair weather fans here. I remember the times when people jumped on the Levy/Kelly Bills bandwagon, the Holgren/Favre Packers bandwagon, etc here in southern California. 

    Where did all those people go? They`ve disappeared! Evaporated.

    *Poof*

    Here yesteryear,  gone today!

    I will always fly the red and black. Now and until the day I die.  Super Bowl 51 does offer me an opportunity,  to pledge my allegiance to this team forever more. This game devastated me,  nearly brought me to tears.  But I didn't jump no bandwagon nor am I a finicky wavering fair weather fan either. 

     

  4. Reacher would gain a quick advantage with a flurry of kicks and punches,  dodges, blocks,  and feints,  but near the end his cardio wears thin,  whereby he goes into acrobatic wuxia wire stunt mode.  

    But then Jason Bourne suddenly in dramatic fashion tosses off his Patriots jersey,  takes his Bruce Lee fighting stance and fleexxes, flicks his nose once, then opens a volley of blows,  peppering him with fists and kicks, by doing so sets up an awesome momentum shift and finishes Reacher a la Mortal Combat by ripping his spine out and uses a rib bone for a toothpick.

    No.  On this I absolutely, and respectfully, disagree. Losing because you look like you didn't belong in the game in the first place is the worst.  The Falcons not only looked like they belonged, they made the Patriots look like they didn't, only to lose because of a series of improbable plays and inexplicable decisions.

    I get it.  But that 28-09 end of third quarter lead, everyone knows how quickly 15 minutes can fly bye?

    But I too just imagine every champion representing the last previous 50 Super Bowls, from `66 Green Bay to  `15 Denver.  Give them a 28-03 lead or even a 28-09 end of third quarter lead and witness how they would have closed out the game like representative champions.  But, nnnnoooo, not the Falcons naturally given our hard luck history.  

    We were so deserving of that Lombardi so much and played like true champions but failed to close out the game like a champion should. 

  6. The game was the ultimate football fan "****" tease of the Lombardi trophy.  

    28-09 end of the third quarter,  couldn't  properly finish one more **** quarter.

    In some ways,  that 55-10 blow out of Denver by Frisco is almost more respectable than failing to hold down the game for another lousy 15 minutes worth of game time. 

  7. R.I.P Blatty. 

    I am abit late with this being a new member. The novel`s depiction of the spider-walk is a hundred times scarier than the movie otherwise I too thought Legion was a superior book to The Exorcist. 

    Having not read any of his latter works,  my favorite Blatty novel,  The Ninth Configuration.  This book rocked! READ THIS BOOK, a real treat!

  10. It still hurts because I want an Atlanta Falcons championship team SO BAD. 

    We basically had it in the bag too until the fourth quarter happened,  15 minutes from glory and a representing champion finally. 

    In the back of my mind,  I fear the 2016-17 Falcons could well be the greatest team the franchise will ever field for many years to come. (Remember those 85 champion Bears,  they had like two or three straight Super Bowl-worthy seasons afterwards where they only lost between 2-4 games each of those seasons but never again saw the Super Bowl.)

    It just ****in sucks. Really does.

    We'd of beaten New England with common sense play calling with 4 minutes left and on New England's 22.

    The Falcon Defense performed well, but got left out on the field far too long, and I don't think there are too many D's out there that can play that many plays in a game, and keep a team from scoring.  The Falcons offense needed to run the ball or at least keep the running backs involved in the passing game more, anything to stay out on the field and eat clock, but that didn't happen. Instead, The Falcon D was forced back out on the field after a turnover and numerous stalled drives. 

    The Falcon D is trending upwards, and will certainly be even better next season. I don't even think it is about "Reloading", so much as it about adding depth, and maybe another pass rusher. We still don't really know what we have in Shelby, and I think we have a couple of guys on the roster who will start playing at a higher level. I fee really good about our current D.

    Also do not forget the turn-over sack,  it was 3rd down and only 2 yards. That cost us 8 points.

    Kinda  neutral observer I guess. I just wanted say the Falcons played a nearly perfect game for 3 quarters, the only "mistake" would be the lack of time the O possessed the ball. 

     

    The Falcons D was gassed come the 4th quarter.  The Falcons high flying O let the D down. They held the ball for 22 minutes(?) all game and only scored 21 points.  I know all the reasons given but even if they got the FG the O was held to 24 points all game.  The Falcons O was horrid on 3rd down as well.  So IMO the Falcons O cost them the SB, just like if they had won the Pats O would have been responsible as both D's played as well as can be expected.

     

     

    The turn-over sack cost Atlanta 8 points,  it was 3rd down and 2, (should have run the ball) Freeman failed to pick up the block on Hightower. 

    Passing on 1st down and ten on the 22 yard line cost Atlanta another 8 points.  (They should've run the ball three times, burned the clock,  and taken the FG.) Instead Ryan is sacked for a twelve yard loss.  Then on the next play,  Jake Matthews is penalized for holding. A 31-20 or 31-28 victory is given away. 

  13. In a game this huge,  "ball control" is the order of the day. 

    All past great champions too probably would have naturally relied on upon it with a 25 point lead and a quarter and less than a half to go. 

    You don't build upon the lead per se but you take the clock away from the opponent. And in its mad scramble to regain possession and score again, its that team making all the mistakes instead of your own team fighting on its back the whole time.
