Not sure this is a horror film[edit]

I've seen the film, more than once; I'm not sure at all it belongs in WikiProject Horror; it's not a horror film; more like a supernatural/mystical fantasy/revelation; ditto with Picnic at Hanging Rock if it's also listed in WP Horror.Skookum1 21:06, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

  • No one answered you, so I'll take a stab. I've long subscribed to the notion that genre films can refer to hte broad spectrum of horror/fantasy/mythological/sci-fi films. THE LAST WAVE is certainly not a "monster" or "ghost" flick (if anything, the MacGuffin is the imminent, cyclical force of natural and supernatural elements) but the twist ending certainly instills a sense of dread or horror. The element of precognitive dreams and spiritual malaise is common to horror films. Until we have a wider, more encompassing Wikiproject dealing with le cinefantastique, I think this one suffices, and THE LAST WAVE qualifies. David Spalding (  ) 16:54, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Created redirect page The Last Wave (film)[edit]

Since the some guidelines dictate that film articles have the (film) suffix (or (YEAR film) for multiple versions), created a redirect to this page. No disambiguation seems necessary. And for the time being, why move this page? I've been argued into the dirt on The Wicker Man against moving it to The Wicker Man (1973 film) (redirect page) as there are many cult/classic films which qualify as being a "main topic page," that is, the most likely page a reader will be searching for. Comments or suggestions welcome. David Spalding (  ) 16:10, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

P.S. I've loved this film since I saw it in first release, own the Criterion disc, any requests for fact chcking or material for the article, please leave a message on my Talk page. ;) ~Dbs
