pallore-m ha dicho: Event Horizon is AMAZING. Do you have any films alike it you could advise?

findchaos:

Absolutely! Though, fair warning: I’m not usually a fan of the “shit goes down in space” genre (which goes to show exactly how awesome Event Horizon is), so they’ll be movies that focus more on similar atmosphere and/or scares, not necessarily similar settings. And without further ado, here we go!

image

  • The Shining - A classic. If you haven’t seen it yet, do; if you have seen it, watch it again— you already know that shit is amazing. This matches Event Horizon surprisingly well in terms of protagonist-turned-antagonist, stark and unsettling atmosphere, and the gradual escalation from spooky to surreal nightmare. Very fun.

image

  • Cube - If you want to skip the character building and go straight to people trying to survive being trapped in a torture box, this is for you. It doesn’t sound complicated, because it really isn’t, but still worth a viewing if the climax of Event Horizon struck a chord with you. The set(s) are a dead match, really.

image

  • The Thing (1982) - Isolated scientists/researchers getting killed of in increasingly gruesome ways. Familiar, right? This movie, however, does an equally grand job of personalizing the characters in peril and the hopelessness of their situation is almost outshone by the amazingly creative (and downright scary) special effects that are anything but dated. Also, that goddamned dog. It should’ve won an Oscar, but it probably would have hate-stared the award committee to death.

image

  • Ghost Ship - I’m pulling this one out of the “so bad it’s good again” folder. Don’t get me wrong: it’s high-octane early-2000s horror shlock, but it’s FUN. That opening scene will stick with you forever, whether it made you laugh or not. Still! Derelict ship with a rescue crew discovering that it houses some supernatural evil? How could I not mention it?

image

  • [REC] (2007) - Don’t bother with the American remake, because the original is far superior and the ending is much scarier. Certainly more of a found-footage “zombie outbreak” movie, but there’s a reason that phrase is in quotation marks. I won’t spoil it for anyone, just rest assured that it’s worth a view!

image

  • Grave Encounters - Another found-footage film that exceeds expectations. The first few minutes, you’ll be sure that there’s been a huge mistake and you’re watching something embarrassingly bad, but WAIT. As things start to go wrong in the abandoned hospital, they go really, really wrong and with competent effects to make for some great scares.

image

  • House on Haunted Hill (1999) - Say what you will, but I’m a rabid fan of this ridiculous movie. It’s a film that’s very self-aware of the inevitable goofiness of horror and plays into it, making the actual scares and gore even more shocking when they happen. Plus, motherfucking Jeffrey Combs. And Geoffrey Rush. And a cameo by James Marsters. C’mooon.

Like most movie lists, especially horror, I could go on and on and on... But! Those are definitely my top suggestions for “if you liked Event Horizon.” And to sate those people who still want “shit goes down in space,” stick with Alien, Solaris, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Sunshine, Moon, etc., etc… Whatever. Space, I guess.

Thanks for asking!

On the morning of September 4, 1957, fifteen-year-old Dorothy Counts set out on a harrowing path toward Harding High, where-as the first African American to attend the all-white school – she was greeted by a jeering swarm of boys who spat, threw trash, and yelled epithets at her as she entered the building.

Charlotte Observer photographer Don Sturkey captured the ugly incident on film, and in the days that followed, the searing image appeared not just in the local paper but in newspapers around the world.

People everywhere were transfixed by the girl in the photograph who stood tall, her five-foot-ten-inch frame towering nobly above the mob that trailed her. There, in black and white, was evidence of the brutality of racism, a sinister force that had led children to torment another child while adults stood by. While the images display a lot of evils: prejudice, ignorance, racism, sexism, inequality, it also captures true strength, determination, courage and inspiration.

Here she is, age 70, still absolutely elegant and poised.

she deserves to be re-blogged. 

she’s so goddamned inspirational

this makes me want to cry

I met Ruby Bridges who was one of the first black elementary schoolers to go to an all-white school and her story is similar to this. I remember watching a bunch of films about it and the image of a black baby doll in a coffin, which the white protestors used as a scare tactic, still haunts me.

If you are interested at all, the measures that they made to even be allowed into a white school was ridiculously hard. Multiple tests that even white adults couldn’t pass. When she first got there there were almost no children because the white parents refused to let their children be taught in the same school or classroom. Protestors threatening when she walked into the school every day. And it didn’t go away quickly- it went on for months.

The shit that these brilliant girls had to go through was unbelievable. Educate yourself if you want to see America’s true history, because they don’t teach you this in school.

I must say I find that girl utterly delightful. Flat as a board, enormous birthmark in the shape of Mexico over half her face, sweating for hours on end in that sweltering kitchen while Mendl (genius though he is) looms over her like a hulking gorilla - yet without question, without fail, always, and invariably: she’s exceedingly lovely. Why? Because of her purity. - The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014, dir. by Wes Anderson)
