FailSafe

I've been eye-ing this movie for a while now and I love horror. Should I watch the 2008 version or the remake?

The original’s ending is... unforgettable.  It’s insane, but strangely poetic?  It’s not “horror” in the way you’d expect, though.

I enjoy both mainstream horror and those metaphorical/symbolic ones. Is the gore too much? I've seen some saw movies and the likes. I'm not really into those stuff but if it's done right and not doing it just for the sake of it then I'm pretty much fine with it. Although I really don't like movies like Human Centipede; there nothing the movie really had to offer and dragged on for too long

I watched this and was scarred for life. I actually don’t recommend it. It’s not terrifying in the way horror should be: I thought it was just straight up demented.

Yes, the original is INCREDIBLE and beyond disturbing. The American remake sucks, as expected

omg the last like 20 minutes of the original are so unsettling :biblio: like I literally don't remember blinking when I watched it. it's a difficult watch but it's pretty good in terms of fresh horror ideas.
