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

finally watched pieces. man, what a weird film. "the most beautiful thing in the world is smoking pot and fucking on a waterbed, at the same time."

dismemberment? nudity? nonsequitur scenes? weird dialogue? college cousin larry mackin on a tennis pro detective? sign me up man. i liked it!

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.

I dunno, I felt the opposite, like it was pretty clear to me that it was all his illness until that last scene where for a moment I was scared that it wasn't. Followed by a huge sigh of relief, it was actually a pretty positive experience in the end.Toggle Spoiler

Horror/Comedy:

Tremors
Basket Case
Brain Damage
Murder Party
Student Bodies
Chopping Mall
The Final Girls
Return Of The Living Dead
Hard Rock Zombies
All Cheerleaders Die
The Greasy Strangler
The Little Shop Of Horrors
Slither
Killer Klowns From Outer Space
Stitches
Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon

obviously these are all pretty all over the place, some being legitimately funny, some being endearingly bad, and some are just basically garbage, it's hard to know what somebody's looking for in horror comedy. I've seen all the ones on aububs list except Father's Day and i'd vouch for all them too

and if you like Father's Day you gotta do Manborg and The Editor too. i love all three and find them hilarious but i do believe that may be because i'm defective. still haven't seen the damn Void.
