    I read the book a long while back and enjoyed it, but I went to see the movie with my girlfriend and actually walked out because of how gory it was. I think I'm getting squeamish in my old age

    That's nothing. Now that it's spring, you should see MY eyes.
    Sheesh, that was fairly disturbing...

    I think the preponderance of "indian" cultures in these types of films has more to do with the Western fixation on primitivism and the alien notion of living close to the earth than it does any sort of elitism or racist stereotypes. Westerners today are afraid of going out at night without a flashlight; drop a few into some spooky, abandoned gravesite without any 911 responders or tourist guides handy and you're well on your way to traumatizing some white people.

    PS - It had always more seemed to me that, particularly with the Native-American-themed plots, that the natives were the ones who were wise enough to subdue these great evils and seal them away in the first place. And often, it turns out that those same natives (or their descendents) know how to put down the bogeyman when it rises again. A staple of the horror genre seems to be the unsuspecting-heroes-vs-nature's-indiscriminate-wrath archetype (usually in the form of some weird monster things.) It's all about our fear of that which is larger/unknown/older/incomprehensible.

    Other cultures ARE more interesting. That's why they call us crackers, because we're bland I guess. I'm not going outside at night. There are bears out there.


    People dieing after they eat wild mushrooms isn't that unbelievable lol. I just watched the trailer. I wonder how many retards will eat shrooms them watch that movie and have a bad time lmao. I guess like everything else that goes wrong, it seemed like a good idea at the time lmao.

    I know, I know, but for some reason, over the past few years, I've developed the uncanny knack for feeling feint whenever I'm bearing witness to needles, incisions, etc. I can usually read about that stuff, or even play video games that contain it, but real life and movies are just out of the question.

    oh my word. He he you would never make it in my line of work. LOL

    I think Clint is right. For the most part the "white" culture is balnd and boring. Unless your a young person and not afraid to get out and break the norm.

    While I agree that any culture that is not your own is often more interesting, why do we have to look at them with so many misconceptions. For instance someone seedjar mentioned how we perceive "Indians" to be closer to nature and being "primitive," though if you examine the group currently discussed the Maya you will see that at their height they were way ahead of Europe in math, astronomy, a calender system, etc... Though considering them close to nature or the earth would be inherently incorrect, as if you look into the most widely accepted reason for the collapse of the Classic Maya its due to over exploitation of the land failing to allow adequate fallow periods before fields were reused. I am sorry but I still view things like these movies as one more aspect of colonialism where were keep the native primitive and repressed.
