    Pigs was a part of my psycho-chicks festival sometime last year. Along with Haunts and The Witch Who Came from the Sea.

    The other two are on my list, so I'll watch one tomorrow. And whichever one I watch better be good!

    I always think of Devil Doll as a fall movie, for whatever reason. The Shout, though, that one is unsettling all year round!

    Well, I watched this one: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0193013/?ref_=rvi_tt
    And now I can say... I watched that one. I loves me some shot on video horror, but this thing was a chore.
    Luckily, I cleansed my palate with a bevy of weirdness that restored my faith in all this horror non-sense.
    First, was the oddity Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural. And yes, it's as cool as the title suggests. It stars, in her first movie role, queen of exploitation and casualty of hard livin', Rainbeaux Smith. Quite a trippy little number. I don't even recall how I heard about it but it was on my IMDb watchlist so I queued it up on the YouTube.
    Next was Eyes of Fire, whose cover intrigued me no end back in the halcyon days of VHS. Why I never rented it I don't know, although I want to say the pictures on the back may have shown the characters in old-timey clothes so I passed. Man oh man, what a wonderful mess of a movie. I must have shouted, "What???" about 20 times while watching. Some super clunky editing and overuse of distracting filters aside, it has some truly inspired effects and Lynchian touches.
    Prey (aka Alien Prey) has been on the ol' list for a long time and it was worth the wait. Norman J. Warren's best? Quite possibly.

    I’ve been skimming through this thread for a while now and I already have so many more movies to add to my list! :shock:
    I’ve been a fan of horror movies for a very long time, but even now I feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface.

    An enthusiastic two thumbs up for "The Ritual". It reminded me of some treasured thematic elements
    from "The Wicker Man" (original version), "The VVitch", and "The Blair Witch Project" all rolled into one.

    "The Woman in Black" was pretty enjoyable. It was a U.K. slow burner that opted for classic creepy chills instead of gore. I've always loved period films, gothic horror, the Victorian Era, Poe, HPL, and Barker; so this was enjoyable for me. Plus there were some nice landscape shots too.

    "XX" was a pleasant surprise focusing on the female perspective and The Brothers Quay-influenced stop motion animation was a nice touch between each vignette.

    Oh body horrror my sweet body horror. Do yourself a favor and see those Canadien Cronenberg classics "The Brood" "Shivers" and "Rabid". Cronenberg's always been a longstanding mainstay for me.

    I'm looking forward to "The Nun" later this year.

    I know I mentioned Lemora here a couple of times over the years, but I'm sure it came to your attention by any number of whispers out there about its strange qualities. A favorite for sure! Eyes of Fire is new to me, so I'll have to hunt it down and give it a go.

    So excited that you finally experienced Alien Prey, Mark! To this day my favorite VHS random-grab ever. Glory Annen? The low-rent brilliance of Ivor Slaney's soundtrackage? The shallow water scene? Gold.

    Found The Legend of Boggy Creek on the same day and used to endlessly subject people to them both.

    Yes to all of that.

    Maybe I did see your mention of Lemora here because I can't think of any other way I came across it. I can tell you this, if I had caught that when I was a kid it would have been a favorite!

    Bunch of new and old horror on netflix since it's a new month.

    The descent part 1 and 2 are both available now. I love them and think they were highly underrated when they released. You get really good acting and great gore along with some nice jump scares and stories that actually make sense for the most part.

    Ravenous looks interesting too. Not the cannibal movie with the Memento guy, some subtitled zombie type flick. Hope to catch it next weekend.

    I really enjoyed "From The Dark" on Amazon Prime. Irish couple stuck in the middle of nowhere with Nosferatu type vampire stalking them. Creepy.

    And The Gift with Jason Bateman is on NF now. I enjoyed this one when I caught it on cable awhile back.

    Hmm, I'll have to check it out. Better check the Rotten Tomatoes score first though. :lol:

    I just finished watching “The Ritual” on Netflix, first new horror flick in a very long time that I thoroughly enjoyed. Lives up to the hype.
    I’m more of a B-movie guy, but that was well worth the watch.

    I watched the Gate last night. I hadn't seen it since I was a kid. Oh my god. The practical effects still look great. Excellent 80's atmosphere. Heavy metal, backwards record playing, kid Stephen Dorff. It really brought me back. I loved it back then, and I love it now for the same and different reasons. God I miss the 80s. Anyone seen the sequel? I need to seek that out.

    That was a movie I missed when I was a kid. Watched it last year or so and was pleasantly surprised. I think I looked at it like The Evil Dead for kids. Didn't know there was a sequel!

    For spoils or further appreciation:

    Loved it as post-tot! Confused it with The Keep for years. :oops:

    I still haven't been able to get through The Keep.

    Forgot to mention that The Haunting of Julia (aka Full Circle) popped up on Shudder last week. Been on my list to watch for quite some time after catching a few scenes on TCM awhile back. Or maybe it was on Netflix back in the day. Anyway, a solid '70s slow burn for thems what like that sort of thing.

    Veronica on Netflix was pretty boring, felt very basic, by the numbers type story. I did enjoy that it’s set in 90’s Spain and the main character listened to Heroes del Silencio. They worked the music into some transition scenes, that was fun.

    Holy Cannoli! Shudder comes through again! Just watched Dark Waters (not the Jennifer Connelly thing or the movie it was a remake of) a film I'd never even heard of until today. It's from 1992 which was a virtual dead zone for horror in general and for me personally as I'd all but abandoned the genre for more "enlightened" fare. An Italian/Russian/UK production its got Lovecraftian overtones wrapped up in the habits of Nunsploitation. It never makes a whole lot of sense, but who cares?? If a movie can make this old horror hound utter, "What the fuck?" five times or more then it's a winner in my book. This is low budget territory so the end may garner a few chuckles, but it's a noble attempt nonetheless.

    Watched SDT last night. Well shot and the acting was solid... but the ending (or lack thereof) ruined it for me.

    Perfectly fine with ambiguous ends to films (when done properly), but this one fell flat.
    Any kind of follow-up regarding the 2 kids the story revolved around would've gone a long way... but instead you get nothing. Lame.

    Since Friday the 13th is in copyright limbo and pretty much dead this kickstarter funded fan made film is the best we can hope for at the moment. I actually liked it quite a bit for what it was. Not the best effects or camera work but that is to be expected. The Tommy cameo made my day! It's just shy of an hour and the first 20 minutes are totally uneventful but for a free movie made by fans for no profit at all it was totally worth watching.
