I noticed these two movies on the cover of the latest Video Ezy brochure... am I just mental to think they're similar? Is it just me? I love finding these sort of similarities in movie posters. This isn't the best example but I have seen trends in movie posters that steal and copy previous lay-outs that helped sell successful movies.
The Descent was a great movie. Very very dark and scary and just incredible atmosphere. I have turned into a real horror movie freak geek lately - that's very Ain't Christian' of me. I downloaded Hostel: Part 2 the other night and had an absolute ball with it - I completely freaked out. That ending - OMG! I happen to be mature enough to understand that such a torture scenario is urban 'mythology'... Not many christians are able to suppress a similar idea of afterlife torture. The Hell mythologers believe many of us are truly going to a Hostel where we'll be tortured at the delight of whoever keeps the fire and poke sticks going.
I'm not scared to admit I am human enough to fear all sorts of stuff. I fear toads and grasshoppers. I fear losing my job. I fear driving long distances and having car trouble. I fear anything that may cause mental or physical pain for myself or family and friends. I fear... ummm... getting kidnapped and sent to a Hostel in Prague and being tortured to death by wealthy psychopaths.
But tortured in hell by neverending flames (on a body that will last forever, mind you), for not going to church or believing in god..? Nahhhh
