started my Halloween watchlist early when Hooper died. trying to catch up on lots of classics / older horror

Tobe Hooper's Dance of the Dead (2005) - i haven't seen a ton of the other Masters of Horror, some have been a little flat for me. but I love nu-metal Tobe Hooper. like Mortuary or that "lost texas chainsaw" trailer i posted above, the bright colors and dated digital effects are way up my alley. the story is whatever but who really cares, i loved watching this. total hell ride.

The Nesting (1981) - so-so flick about an agoraphobic woman in a haunted house in the country. I liked The Hearse better, similar setting.

The Incubus (1982) - awesome

The Death Wheelers / Psychomania (1973) - great score, great imagery, like a spooky exploitation feature. loved it.


Tombs of the Blind Dead (1972) - loved the atmosphere but a little too slow for me. still interested in checking out the rest of the series, loved the Templar Knights.

Bride of Frankenstein (1932) - haven't seen since i was a kid. cartoon-y and responsible for most Frankenstein cliches we've come to know, but still so much more than that. gonna try to watch through the rest of the Frankenstein series.

House of Wax (1953) - the dialogue and the characters were extremely boring and obnoxious, save for Vincent Price of course. but i could watch his silhouette running through the city over and over and over. would love to see this without dialogue...

Witchouse (1999) - meh. kind of just wanted to get this out of the way to see the second one.

The Brotherhood (2001) - wasn't this supposed to be a porno? i guess i knew what i was getting myself into. need to balance these watches with some trash

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?

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.

Flutehampton will turn out to have always been relished by women who dwell in or near to the past. This is where The Little Reptiles were digitally collected. In recent decades it has become a popular photographic background whenever a maverick cop marries a hooker with a heart of gold.

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.
