      our future

      Let all this return to the dust. We never know that we would rather delete this terrible memory. We can’t predict, fate is difficult, and in the face of death, no one knows, no one knows what is going on. The Chernobyl nuclear power plant can be enough. The damaging kingdoms of the earth are turned into dust. There are two ways to hide them in the clouds and forests. One is space, the other is that they can’t find its place, and the third is that no one has come out alive, and the world is...

      My favorite CULT film~

      There are actually many kinds of CULT movies. I only love the horrible B movies. I saw this movie once when I rented a VCD from the elementary school. I went there for the title, which was straightforward! At that time, I saw this piece of very old feeling, the particles are very coarse! ! ! But after reading it, I just feel it! Thinking, how do you treat me a kind and lovely pupil in such an inhuman movie?" ? ? ? After reading it many times, of course, when I grew up, I found that Sam...

      We make movies all by vomiting

      In the attitude of chasing American dramas, he made up for the "Ghosts" series of movies. I never expected that the directors would basically use ketchup to make movies.
      I won’t say much about the picture, plot, and the degree of nausea. This is a cult film that is absolutely useless for the body and mind. Compared with it, the "Deadly Bend" series and "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" are just like me. The neighbor’s bears are as cute as the children. If you really want to use any movie...

      Thoughts on the movie "Ghosts"

      Man’s creativity is endless. In order to dream, he can raise capital to produce his long-term horror movie. This man made a masterpiece of horror film fans who will always pay attention to horror film fans for US$370,000-Sam Raimi.

      The story is old by today's standards, but audiences of similar films require different scripts to be the main film. What they want is blood, horror, and atmosphere. "Ghosts" gives the audience a very rich killing feast, which makes them fearful. Leaving...

      The cult horror under the reckless temperament

      Only by looking at the story text of the movie did you realize what a ghost is and what are the conditions for ghost possession? There are no conditions. The hostess ran around with a dementia outside, but she was possessed by a ghost; the second woman stood in the window of the room and was possessed; the third woman was stabbed by the woman and then possessed. Do you see any pattern? No, if the third woman was injured before she was possessed, then the first woman and the second...

      Now it seems that there is a real sense of a fake copycat. . . . However, the massacre of the secret room is also the originator, which inspired many later...

      Finally got a taste of Sam Raimi's well-known "Ghost Man", but unfortunately this B-grade horror film still failed to wake me from the drowsy state. It may be the relationship between the ages. Now watching this work, no matter the language of the camera, the performance of the actors, the makeup of the props, etc., it gives me a feeling of youthfulness. If you ask, is it scary? I can only answer, at this moment I don't feel disgusting or terrifying?...

      Movies in the early 1980s did not have good makeup techniques and no good post-production special effects. They could only intimidate the audience by relying on sound and changes in camera angles. In fact, they were still very classic movies. And the way of the final stop-motion animation is really very intentional. Although all the props look fake, it has really been a success as a B-level film. As a cult movie lover, I really still recommend this...

      I want to say that America is really bloody! It was possible to make such a perverted movie more than 30 years ago! Although the special effects are a bit clumsy, there are endless bugs, but I still think it looks good! In fact, the most terrifying thing is the insects crawling around after the monster hangs up! !...

    Movie plot

    The movie tells a story. Five people drove out on vacation and came to a remote place where there was a shabby cabin that they had booked a long time ago. After staying, the clock was fixed. When enjoying, they heard the horror sound of the cellar. A horrible-looking book and an old-fashioned tape recorder were found under the cellar. Out of curiosity, they listened to the content left on the tape recorder. This was left by the...

    Background creation

    The film was filmed in 1979, and it took two years to complete the filming, and the cost was about 85,000 U.S. dollars. The funding of the film is obviously restricted, and material shortages can be seen everywhere: it can only be made with 16 mm film; most of the plot is filmed in a small wooden house and surrounding groves. At the beginning of the movie, the car driving over the iron bridge is one of the few location scenes in the...

    Evaluation action

    The film is filled with a lot of black humor. Sam Remy maintains suspense and nightmarish emotions very well, and the special effects and graphic violence created by the almost conspicuous spray of blood have become the hallmarks of modern horror films. -Variety Show
    The weakness of the narrative is made up for by the tense rhythm, the uneasy atmosphere and the extremely imaginative dismemberment scene. "Ghost Man" is one of the great...
