    I'm surprised at the popularity of these Saw films. I watched the first Saw movie back in 2004 and didn't think it was all that great. Do they get better after that one?

    Yes ;-)

    I've met Shawnee Smith a while ago at Memorabilia one year!

    so you don't think they're grindingly repetitive and plotless at all then?

    I am not so big into Horror as I find it a little low brow. I prefer more psychological thrillers.

    I don't suppose that now is the time to admit that I have all 7 movies on dvd, plus Billy on his tricycle and a plush Billy.

    With that, I might just have to go and hide somewhere...

    I don't even know if I have seen Saw. My friend is a horror fan so she has forced me to watch a lot of horror movies, before her kids were born so I've probably seen it, but can't remember.

    It's the one with the traps, those six words just about some up all saw movies! Nah, just kidding, funnily enough I'm gore porn crazy but I just can't get into them. I thought the rotating breaking joints machine was pretty good, but apart from that, meh. Each to their own mind. Are you into horror, as a whole, then stephen, or just specific horror movies?

    I'm a horror fan in general yes. Favoured sub genre is either home invasion or psychological...mixed in with a little bit of gore.

    Take it you like you're next ,and them ,and the perfect invasion gore combo that is the collector series then? Have you seen house on the edge of the park, I love David hess in this and last house on the left. You'll enjoy them both if you've not seen them

    Strangely enough, there are two specific traps that make me feel sick, one of which I can't bear to look at.

    So given saw trap cliche law then, it's one of reverse beartrap, aforementioned twister, or needle pit then!

    Yes, the RBT with Jill Tuck. The other one is where a man and a woman (her name is Simone, can't think of his), and they have to "extract a pound of flesh". She ended up chopping her arm off and he was sort of gutting his right side. I've had to cover my eyes.

    Yes I liked You're Next and amazingly enough I've only seen the first Collector movie. Must get to watching the rest!

    The pound of flesh trap I didn't really like and the result of her chopping her arm off got a chuckle out of my screen audience for some reason lol

    Well, I think @Tex_Rimmer is a great man, but this thread is for discussing horror (such as not liking Tex), not for discussing the great one.

    ALL threads have a place in them for the glorious Tex. Remember that.

    The follow on to the collector is pretty week in my opinion, you might like it though. Have you seen them, and funny games, what about the strangers?

    You will probably also like martyrs, which it seems everybody, but me, loves. It's part of the then new wave of extreme horrors, though I found it to be boring pish.
