The scary classic from Alfred Hitchcock.

This would be a cool level for TR,

It's one of the scariest movies I've seen,

That, or something like it, could happen sooo easy
once Nature loses patience with us and our ways.


Discuss, please!

True that- they were some evil creatures those beetles!
Gave me the creeps. As did the spiders in TR2 =/

Bah!

Have you seen "The Birds!"?
The atmosphere.... Wow! Chilling!

Monkeys....:cen:
They were cool at first, but untrustworthy later on.
Snakes, well what do you expect from them anyways?

They just locked themselves in the house
and the birds ard getting in....!

No.:D

It's indeed a powerful film, and no need of flashy special efects! It seems every moment announce what's going to happen, since the instant we see the bid she offers.

I also thought,after wathing it, that it was also a bit related to the fact both characters were very repressed,and that fury might a metaphor for the releasing/ fear of their emotions.

I like anything by Alfred Hitchcock except his comedies.

Lara's mission: release 2 "Lovebirds" in a quaint CA community
(North of SF) that are being held in a cage by Yuppies.

Unbeknownst by the Yups, these 2 birds have 1337
psychic powers and sympathies with other birds...

you know the rest of the story....

JRB, good to see that you are still around:tmb:
wasn't (aren't) sure what is up.... around here... =/

So Fruedian! Great observation.

Alas like TRL, The Birds is over too soon!:(

Hitchcock could have worked with CD (either one), no?:D

You see, the beetles are more or less guardians of a temple,in a video game.

The Birds is a film about the repression of emotions and how these can be powerful, so...still no. :D

Indeed,Hitch based a great number of arguments in Freud's theories, and,though I don't like it, Psychodinamic theory is still my base formation,lol.

Pipolinne, these are the kind of responses
that cause us to think. Will be with me tonight
as I go to sleep for sure.... Interesting.

That's why I like talking about these topics:somehow, we always think a little better in our own opinions.

And that's a beautiful compliment,Airave :)!

Thank you, Pipolinne!:)

I will actually be contemplating what you said
and it will surely enrich my reality!:)

For a scary film, Wait Until Dark was one of the first movies with sudden scare that I remember. Since then a lot of movies have done something similar (like the end of Carrie), but I remember quite a few screams from the audience (I used to run a projector for a college, and it was always fun to watch the reaction from this movie). It's an old movie with Audrey Hepburn, and Richard Crenna.
