      Normally when you take a still of a special effect (especially with CGI) you can start picking it apart quite easily. It's amazing that the still of the T-1000 looks so incredibly realistic. Cameron's special effects in that movie are absolutely flawless, even in this day and age. I kind of forget that from time to time.

      I agree. After more than 20 years the likes of The Thing, Aliens, American Werewolf and Predator are still more convincing than the recent CGI shyte-fest of VAn Helsing, Mummies, REsident Evil or the UNderworld travesties..I just hope the recent 'Prequel' to The Thing continues this standard.

      Yeah, I'm actually quite looking forward to the thing prequel. The bootleg trailer (although very hard to make out whats going on) looks pretty good and I've heard that initial buzz has been positive. Can't believe that it was supposed to be released on my birthday but now has been pushed back to October!

      So you've got "The Ring"'s Sadako but you haven't got your woman off "The Grudge" (forgotten the name...Kayako?) who, by the way, can suddenly pop up when you're in bed and drag you under it, not to mention move down the stairs like a staring, permanently-croaking white spider with jerky limbs?!! Hello, she's the reason I have to turn lights on when I go up to bed at night!

      Yeah I remember the night I saw the c**p (but still scary) US remake of The Grudge we had a powercut and I was absolutely crapping myself just looking for candles.

      Woah woah woah "Keeping the gross fish-pig more or less out of sight throughout much of the early film" in The Host? The thing has a f*****g rampage through the city within ten minutes of the opening credits!

      What about Pumpkinhead or the Kathoga from The Relic, both brilliant creatures created by Stan Winston.

      still say the t-rex in Jurassic Park was real....... but i think i'm the only one that's wants him for a pet XD but yeah, the effects in JP blow newer films out the water... and that must be getting close to the 20 years ago mark soon!

      The lack of Pyramid Head from Silent Hill is conspicuous and disappointing... Also, it's "Jason Voorhees", with two "o"s.

      The Pale Man actually gave me nightmares. Terrifying.
