This is probably the film they should've done after Lambs. It would've allowed all involved to have another hit while taking a rain check on the Jodie Foster issue.

The world deserved a real follow-up to Lambs.


I should watch Manhunter...haven't watched it in decades. I know it was a remake of this but other than that, don't remember it.

And Anthony Hopkins wouldn't have looked so much older if they made Red Dragon sooner after SOTL, I also would've picked Russell Crowe as  Will Graham instead of Norton. I prefer Manhunter because the Tooth Fairy killer has more of a mystique , he's too sympathetic in the Red Dragon movie.

A proper sequel to Silence of the Lambs would have been a Clarice stand-alone story struggling with PTSD after the events of Lambs, assigned to investigate new mysterious killings and chasing a new deranged killer in maybe a city-type setting. Lecter's story ends perfectly well when he's in the Bahamas.

Great story misterID! It's nice to be lucky enough to get that comfort from a recently deceased loved one. My condolences.

Incidents like this makes me believe it is another dimension or alternate timeline stacked on top of ours and these are slips or glitches in the matrix. .

I swear when I was on a field trip (forget what for) in fourth grade, we had our lunches on this park pavilion area. The wind blew away like a Dorito bag I finished from my lunch and ran almost to the other side of this park to catch it. I see a class of different kids from another school having lunch but the kids and even the teachers/chaperones were dressed to the toe in '70s clothing, hair, facial hair and sideburns, and this is about 1998! They were all looking at me like I were an alien and I truly felt out of place. James I remember that Hearse story from way back in the day, weird but cool stuff! The truth is out there...

Now on to MY ghost experiences

House 1:

I grew up in a duplex in the '90s with my mother. When I was aged 8-9 I woke up in the middle of the night, in this house we left the bathroom light on at night instead of the hallway light because it would be too bright. I saw what looked like a woman walked through the hallway, I knew it wasn't my mom because she has brunette hair. This lady was nude and had lighter, blonde hair pulled back in a style like in the '50s or maybe older. I could sort of see through her.

Fast forward a little further in this same house. For some reason I slept in the living room and woke up and couldn't go back to sleep. On the wall opposite from me, there was something door-sized and oval shaped but it was like a glowing green. I remember the fear and couldn't look at it. I was keeping my blanket covered over me tight.

House 2:

In my late teens, we moved from that duplex into a town house in a row home the next town over, that my aunt and uncle lived in previously years ago. I had a few strange experiences like seeing figures in my peripheral vision and disappear as soon as I would turn my head in the direction. But my mom had worse, she woke up feeling her blankets being lifted and dropped back on top of her, next she would wake up feeling strangled. One time in December, we were looking through Christmas decorations, she felt somebody or something pull her pants down. She hollered at me first but knew it couldn't have been me because I was in the other side of the room with my back to her. We moved after 5 years and  later talked to the owners that moved in after us, they saw a ghost what they described as a black midget dressed in early 20th century clothing. Remember I said earlier that my relatives previously lived there years before? I talked to my cousin who said as a kid she would stay in the powder room and just to talk to "imaginary friends" also dressed in early 20th century type clothing. All I found out was that whole row home was once a cigar factory but I'm still trying to find more information on it.

Ah that brings back memories. That long Halloween (2007) thread, an exciting time to be a Halloween fan back then.

I just rewatched the Godfather trilogy, kind of a different experience watching them through mature eyes and have a new appreciation for them. I watched these for the first time when I was still a teenager during the revival of Scarface in the mid '00s but couldn't understand it, more dialogue and less action.

#7 Re: The Sunset Strip » Rolling Stones - No Huge, Iconic albums?!? » 164 weeks ago

Monkey Man anyone? I also love Jigsaw Puzzle. My favorite era of The Rolling Stones was when Mick Taylor was their lead guitarist. I like the Hyde Park '69 and Altamont version of Sympathy for the Devil.

Has anyone on here watched this series before? My coworker was raving about this so I started it, finished it in two weeks. There's three seasons(fourth on the way), 10 episodes each and they're about a half hour long. Not only a great follow up to the Karate Kid movies  but they don't go overboard with the '80s nostalgia, just enough and done right.  William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence (bully from first Karate Kid) is a great protagonist, he rescues his young teenage neighbor from school bullies and decides to open up a Karate Dojo and revive Cobra Kai. I highly recommend it!

#9 Re: The Sunset Strip » Movies That Should've Been Bigger » 167 weeks ago

My pick would be The Mosquito Coast with Harrison Ford, Helen Mirren and River Phoenix. Ford was just awesome as this crazy, radical-minded asshole who's angry at the world and moves his family to South America in search of a better life only to end up in disaster. I think Harrison Ford himself states this is his favorite performance.

Another guy I really liked was superMike. He was really active at HTGTH, joined us at ROV and here, but rarely posted to the point he was like a noob and no one really knew him.

He was a huge horror fanatic.

James, don't know what motivated me to login here but was thinking about my GNR brothers and sisters and haven't forgotten about you all. So sorry I've become a stranger, a lot of highs and lows in my personal life, especially the last 10 years and today I'm just trying to keep  myself on a straight path while this world's going to hell in a hand basket. Music, guitar and horror movies are still a passion of mine and was very fortunate to see G n' R live 2016.

And James, as for posters I remember very well besides you and DTJ, are SLC Punk, D, a poster on the HTGTH from Ecuador and huge fan of Queen (funny guy, can't remember his username though). Remember  Chelle from HTGTH? She was hot and fun to talk to on forums. Remember Mel from Australia on HTGTH as well? God, the 2000s compared to now look like the '80s don't it?
