Deadpool came out Valentines day and had a altered trailer making it out to be a romantic drama about a cancer sufferer, took the Darl at the time to the movies to watch it.
About 10 mins in at least a dozen girls or couples walked out, also a couple of mums and kids. Was quite funny

I’d imagine sausage party probably got the same (people thinking they were kids movies)
Fun fact: the preview of Sausage Party was shown in a cinema of a screening of a kids movie like The Incredibles or something.

The parents were not impressed.
/im sure the kids asked them alot of questions tho.

In Search of Darkness is a great Doco on 80's Horror movies. Heaps of behind the scenes stories, celeb takes etc.
I'm an 80's Horror tragic. As a Teenager, I used to run down to the local Video Busters every friday arvo and hire 80's and 90's Horrors and a Super Nintendo game.
This was an awesome trip down memory lane and has given me some to check out that I missed.

Cannibal Holocaust is all kinds of f’ed up but the music is a piece of genius.

Cannibal Ferox is one I really liked too (not sure if it's related to this one or not).

I used to be such a huge horror film watcher and working in a video store on and off for around 10 years I've seen so many but struggle to remember a lot of them. A lot of B grade ones in there but really the best horror films are the psychological ones like The Shining and Alien even Jaws, the slasher films just make me laugh for the most part.

Not sure if they'd be classed as Thriller or Horror (possibly Thriller) but I loved Memento, Machinist, Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire. I love Lynch probably my favourite director but still haven't seen some of his earlier stuff (Dune, Elephant Man).

Here's a question for someone that worked there, what movies at the cinema had the most walk outs?

Only time I've seen it on mass was during Very Bad Things when they start throwing around body parts but I've only ever gone to the cinema a few times of the year.
Only movie I've ever walked out of was I Am Legend with Will Smith, that movie sh*t me no end,just basically a vehicle for Smith to make wisecracks.

I don't remember the wisecracks in that too much. Certainly not like in Independence Day or Men in Black. But they are different types of movies I guess.

I don't think I've ever walked out of a movie. Actually, I walked out of the recent Lion King about 20 minutes in because my kid was sick but that's different. I'd say The Blair Witch Project would be up there. People weren't used to the hand-held camera. I remember reports of it making people nauseous.

I'm not sure what was more nostalgic for me - reading up on In Search of Darkness, or your reference to Video Busters

Yeah absolutely. I heard reports ppl actually vomiting too.

Iirc when i watched Irreversible i could barely watch the first scene due to the discomfort from the flashing strobe lights

and not from "that" scene? most uncomfortable film i have ever watched.
I walked out of 3 kings because i was sitting in the first row and it was so loud i felt really sick even though i was enjoying it. The only true walkout was All the Pretty Horses. That movie was horrendous and my friend wanted to see it because Brad Pitt was in it, but it wasn't Brad Pitt it was Matt Damon lol

The rape scene? Nah that was fine im talking about the nightclub scene and the strobe lights and the music. I think i read the director absolutely did it on purpose those low frequency sounds cause nausea.

His last film was Climax and it was very similarly nausea inducing. The first half was my favourite film of that year and the 2nd half was my least favourite.

I hate movies the most like that.

Some mainstream ones- Gone Girl (i have no idea what happened in the end i blanked out cos it was so sh*t) and Girl on the train= great first halfs sh*t seconds.


sh*t sounds like my football team
