I think one that's obvious to me and to some of us horror fans: Uwe Boll. Sorry, but his films are really bad to me and I just can't watch them. I consider him the Edward D. Wood Jr. of today, only he has a cult following of being hated!

At least with Wood you had a cheesy quality to them. Bolls films don't have that, or least the ones I've seen, since they're taken so seriously!

I love David Lynch as well. You ever catch Inland Empire, it's the longest David Lynch mind-**** film made so far. Plus, the choice to use digital cameras I think really added to the experience of it all!

No,I never mate.
I've seen Eraserhead,Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart,which I couldn't get into.
I own Mullholland Drive and Twin Peaks,but ain't ever watched 'em.
As I say The Elephant Man is the only film of his I've loved.
I can understand why people like that sort of film though.
At the end of the day,everything's down to personal taste I suppose.

Took me a few times to watch Inland Empire..really ****ed with my head. Loved it though.

Looking forward to Footprints, will no doubt have to order it online as they are a pox to try and buy here.


As for Uwe Boll, I can proudly say I have not seen any of his movies and don't want to!!
