  •  My horror movie of the day; '1984' (7+ / 0-)

    "But Ford - '1984' isn't a horror movie!" you say. Oh yes it is - the most real horror film you can imagine!

    1984

    Because, let's be honest; we all know that there are no demons, vampires, zombies, ghosts, poltergeists, witches or magical creatures of any kind out there to do horrible things to us. The REALISM of what could actually happen in '1984' should frighten us all, and it is much more likely to come true.

    19841

    Everyone knows the plot of '1984' of course - the entire world run by totalitarian governments who pretend to be different from the other totalitarian governments, but who are all the same. And who keep the masses under control with an artificial state of total war against the other countries, grinding poverty, constant surveillance, propaganda over the media, state approved torture, manufactured internal enemies for the people to hate, and destroying and rewriting history to whatever suits the needs of the moment. But fortunately all that is only fictional, and could never happen in real life. Right?

    19843

    The only prediction Orwell really got wrong was the '2 minute Hate', which he completely underestimated. With FOX and right wing talk radio, it's 24/7 hate, beamed directly into your home for your convenience.

    John Hurt as Winston Smith. His own personal sadness helped him

    19842

    This version is the ultimate film adaptation of the novel, bleakly and soul-destroyingly shot with an amazing cast, led by John Hurt as Winston Smith. This was also Richard Burton's final film.

    19844

    If you want to be TRULY scared this Halloween, watch this movie, and repeat to yourself; "It could never happen here.... it could never happen here.... it could never happen here........."

    They called Einstein 'crazy', too..... until he started KICKING ASS!!!
