I'm a fan of horror/gore movies (and
comedies, so please don't think of me as a budding Leatherface or Ted Bundy). Here's just three of my favorites: - Texas Chainsaw Massacre
(the '03 remake, not the '74 original) - The Devil's Rejects
(some real sickos in that one, let me tell you!) - Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
(little-known but excellent)
I might add that these movies don't "motivate" me, so you can cancel that 911 call to the cops. I sure don't need them ventilating my front door with a battering ram at 3 am. (Hell, I'm still in the process of repairing the damn thing from the last time they did that).
btw -- Although Troy
didn't inspire me in any way, I'm with you, Syryus: it was a good flick. You might want to check out Kingdom of Heaven
starring Orlando Bloom (he played Legolas in LOTR
); a flick about the Crusaders in the Holy Land.
