i've been lucky to see the first 3 astron 6 movies in the theatre with very receptive crowds which i'm sure added to the experience.

the best recent horror comedy is The Love Witch.

I just watched "May" (2002) and "Excision" (2012).

Good double feature although I think May is the better film. Feel like "May" is a criminally underrated horror movie and probably should be a cult classic at this point, at least more so than it is although I know it does have its fans. The ending is unreal. I had watched Lucky Mckee's movie "The Woman" a few years back and simultaneously liked it and was repulsed by it. "May" works in much the same way but is easier to digest and the lead performance is amazing.

"Excision" was also good. Surprisingly funny. Definitely nowhere near as disturbing, dark, and layered as "May" but still pretty good. Kinda ends up abruptly.

Seriously though what the fuck were they thinking with the poster for "May"? They make her look like a damn goth alien or something. Totally misrepresents the film.

yeah i remember seeing the poster everywhere for years, it was like a staple at every video rental place and every friend's houses who had older sisters, I also thought it was this overly serious psychedelic 90s kinda movie that took place in Arizona or something, only finally ended up watching it like a year or so ago after having an actual conversation with someone about it and yeah, could not be further than the impression the poster gives you

long story short, fucking looooooove May. Def will be checking out Excision

Two Thousand Maniacs! (1964) - not my favorite HGL but i definitely love all the daytime gore

Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood (1973) - that sweet spot around texas chainsaw massacre full of dutch angles, dissonant musique concrete scores, and murderous maniacs. pretty fun.

Witchouse II: Blood Coven (1999) - wasn't worth sitting through the first one for this. thought i was gonna get more of a blair witch 2 knock-off but mostly an all around miss.

Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981) - i love the idea of horrific scarecrows but still haven't found an amazing film to showcase it. this was pretty good as a made for tv movie. little slow, just a touch eerie.

IT (2017) - i think i made my position clear in the IT thread.

Asylum (1972) - too slow, too dry, too Amicus.

Invasion of the Blood Farmers (1972) - closer to HGL than Texas Chainsaw, stylistically. lots of syrupy red blood, wacky characters. this was a lot of fun.

Death Ship (1980) - this was fantastic. i had read a lot of lukewarm reviews but i thought this was very creepy and a touch surreal. really fun haunted house ride.

Masters of Horror: Pick Me Up (2006) - i was super stoned while watching this and everything felt really off to me. but i love fairuza balk and michael moriarty was a lot of fun too.

The Others (2001) - i thought i had seen this after it was released but i must have just seen the trailer for it on every horror dvd i owned when i was a teen, because there's no way i could forget something shot so beautifully. not a perfect film but gorgeous to look at with lots of eerie moments.

Annabelle: Creation (2017) - meh, this was ok. a step up from Lights Out, at the least. really sick of the Wan-iverse.

Man I love The Others but I think that's entirely based on it being one of the first horror movies I was allowed to see as a kid.

Yeah, Cabin Fever 2 is great and gross as hell. Particularly love the use of Rider Strong's cameo.

cabin fever 1 & 2 are awesome. 3 and the remake are terrible.
