The thread was about scenes in movies that you never forget or make you uncomfortable, etc... so someone made a list of movies that are considered to be the most difficult to watch. I shortened the list a bit because I had already scene a few on the list like Begotten, Audition, Last House on the Left (original), etc..

Some are low budget gore and some are actually supposed to pretty well thought out with good story lines and high tension.

The horror movies that they show in theaters are just completely lame. The last movie I went and saw Insidious and I left disappointed. I thought it was an ok movie, but it wasn't scary.

Not sure what that is. But apparently all the best "I hate myself for watching this" movies are coming out of France.

Kind of embarrassing, really. There are great horror films being made and the ones people know are Saw 6 and Paranormal Activity 4 ...sigh

I keep nothing in site, have the trunk opener disabled, and have an old raggedy nozip NB top.

Is my miata the only one where you have to lock it from the outside? If I lock the doors and close them, they unlock. It's nice because it's saved me a few times from making a big mistake.

Unless you live in a place like DC, where a homeless person is guaranteed to defecate inside your car if you leave it unattended and unlocked for more than five minutes, I still can't figure out why the windows are even up, much less the doors locked.

Joe, theres this thing called rain. It tends to get everything inside thr car wet if the top and or windows are left open. I will excuse your ignorance, because you live in california.

As far as Ive seen, all NA miatas require the door handle to be held open for the door to lock. Oddly, my dads 77 911 requires the same thing.

False. At most they will eat lunch and steal your change.

True: I once left my miata locked, parallel parked on the streets of DC in the same place for two weeks while I was out of the country.

It was untouched and exactly as I left it when I returned.

Good grief, this car is stunningly clean for a 1991 shitbox. I'm seriously considering this as a daily. I was it wasn't such a mind-numbingly boring car...
