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)

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


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.


no pressure! appreciate the thought. i'm surprised most everything on CG is such high quality... doesn't feel right watching a BR

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.

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.
