Is there anything I need to do to get access to the DB besides PM the person who created the thread in the members forum and wait? I've got some stuff I could throw into the spooky flix folder.

You must clearly be unfamiliar with the director. He doesn't make pornos.

He's a HPN movie series legend, his talking animal family films always manage to have several twinks playing in the pool or just taking their shirts off for no reason.

And he's made it onto the new Eyes of Laura Mars blu!

this is literally the third time this director has refilmed and released this boring short, I mean.

any good amateur or indie horror recommendations from the past two years? i dug flanagan's efforts and The Barn, though none of these were really anything particularly outstanding.

i genuinely enjoyed And Hell Awaits despite taking about half the length to warm up to it. it's a pretty pitch black comedy with a great punchline although i fully expect to be in the minority on this so maybe i shouldn't really recommend it. also the couple other films i've seen from daniel falicki are garbagey.

on the topic of films i have enjoyed but haven't read anyone else's opinions on, what are anyone's thoughts on The Chair (2007) or my all-time favorite found footage movie June 9 (2008)

i watched all 13 of decoteau's 1313 films and i still don't get who the audience is. me?

And Hell Awaits sounds like a cool watch. i'll finally sit down for june 9 now as well, thanks.

the idea of doing this popped into my head the other day and i laughed out loud at the thought.

I wrote about June 9 back in 2012:

Looked at one way, June 9's structure is better than that of some: as hints of menace begin to creep into frame from the peripheries, a gaggle of boneheaded teens use a camera to record their middle class suburban malaise and tasteless pranks played upon a neighboring town with a cursed past. There's even a fun framing device wherein a mysterious party views the tapes after the fact, a device used to similar effect in superior FF outing Evil Things (2009). Looked at in a different way, one could call this approach a diligent producer of tedium. The film's structure is more the latter than the former because its cast of (actual!) teenagers is only as likeable as a cast of teenagers can be (not very): they film themselves attempting to smoke cigarettes through their nostrils, breaking mailboxes for kicks, and engaging in philosophical exchanges about the nature of existence ("Ezra said to take a left turn" "Yeah, well, Ezra is a fag"). Their collective sole redeeming quality is their insistence upon hanging out with their overweight, misfit pal Berty, who is suitably endearing in his headphones-strapped solitude. The film does eventually segue into a pretty effective Two Thousand Maniacs!-esque climax (softened only slightly when the cultish townspeople begin tapping the teens on their skulls with obviously rubber mallets). It's at this moment that the film pulls its only inventive FF conceit by passing off the camera to one of the villains (a little boy townie) for a ten-minute post-credits wrap-up showing us the flipside, or how the cheery murderers live. An intriguing way to conclude, even if it features the film's most knuckleheaded moment: the child, focusing the camera in on a praying mantis he's found in the grass, exclaims, "Hello, grasshopper." June 9, a day that will live in obscurity.

Also the HPN Movie Series will be tackling another DeCoteau film very shortly. Not one of the 1313s, exactly, but close.

hm i thought Evil Things was decent until the camera switched to the killer. for me June 9 was something that for the most part genuinely felt like found footage plus the look is great. i've only seen it twice though and the last time was in 2010 so maybe my opinion would be different now.

i sold off all my major title vhs tapes years ago but now i'm in desperate need for sleepaway camp 1, sleepaway camp 2, and the burning for a "friday the 13th" camping trip in the woods. really hesitant to spend >$40 on any of these all over again. anyone have any dirty vhs rips of these they can upload to the dropbox?

any good 80's horror trailer compilations too? anything good to watch on a crappy old tv around a campfire in the woods

Been rewatching the Death Note anime since the movie reminded me how great it was.

Berlin Syndrome is on Netflix now and is worth a watch if you're into psychotic/captivity thrillers.

My Sleepaway Camp VHS is a prized possession. I can try to create a rip sometime this month but no promises!

If anybody has a guide for compression settings to get a ~1.2gb file that would come in handy.

rewatched Body Parts for the first time since a couple years after it came out.

it's too bad jeff fahey has negative charisma cos it's otherwise a fun little movie

(though i still prefer the mark hamill eye segment of Carpenter's Body Bags when it comes to the "possessed former body part of a serial killer" genre)

Watched They Look Like People last night, based on browsing this thread and finding ampersand's letterboxd lists. It's been a while since I've watched any films, let alone horror, but with halloween coming up and all I've been in the mood lately. I liked it well enough, looking back it was pretty obvious it was all in his head but i wanted his delusions to be real cause those visuals were terrifyingToggle SpoilerWhatever, the movie had me sweating the entire time, it's what i needed to shock me out of the tedium of my life right now.
