I already have Evil Dead on BD. I said saw it there, not bought it there.

I did pluck a 10 movies on 2 discs "Zombie Binge" set out of the $4.99 DVD bin. Die-Ner, Revolt of the Zombies, River of Darkness, Autumn, Ashes, Hide and Creep, Zombie Dearest, Last of the Living, Night of the Living Dead and I Am Omega. I think that puts me up to somewhere around 5 copies of NOTLD.

I also got "Underworld Awakening" and a 6 movies on 2 discs horror set from the $7.99 Blu-ray bin. That one has Hoboken Hollow, Keepsake, Killjoy 3, The Gingerdead Man 3, 2:13 and Roman.

I have gone to the dollar store and bought some BD's for you guessed it a dollar! Granted not many horror but some movies I haven't seen yet. Does wally world still have a bin of BD/DVD's of cheap movies? My mother in law even found some bD's at garage sales for a dollar.

Hey guys, I've been away from this thread for far too long but I just wanted to check in. I haven't been watching many movies at all. It's making me wonder if I'm able to even attempt the marathon this year. My daytime job has been busy, and our YouTube channel has been going crazy (we've been on TV twice, on the radio, in the newspaper) so it's almost like having 2 jobs because I spend most nights editing video and working on the channel. I'm enjoying it but just haven't watched many movies lately.

I did manage to watch "The Returned" ("Les Revenants") French TV series on Netflix streaming, which was pretty good. Not overtly horror but a creepy Lynchian vibe throughout. Worth a watch.

I picked up Cronenberg's "Sisters", and the Criterion "Monsters & Madmen" collection recently, and am enjoying all the reviews and previews here!

By October your kids should be able to edit video, so no excuses.

I enjoyed The Returned as well. Hoping the crapola hits the fan in the next installment, but is fun watching a French take on suburbia.

Might be in the same boat this October. I'm hopeful to see a few but the soon to be three year old is the center of the universe so I'll just focus on faves most likely. She's impresses really easy and answering questions about what's on screen is challenging so it forces very light stuff to be on. Every time she sees a roundhouse kick I have to explain why that isn't nice and he should go sit in the corner and apologize.

That's because the movie is bad.

I know you are telling her to sit in the corner until she gets her roundhouse kick right, then she can leave.

I've seen DVD at Dollar Tree but not BD's. The store where I get $2.50 doesn't have any BD's. I need to make a trip over to Rasputin's and see what they have as there are a couple discs I wouldn't mind collecting. I haven't been there since they moved from the old Tower spot back into their refurbed building down the block that they own.

The BD's are pretty much obscure movies or ones that didn't to do great theatrically or straight to the home market. I haven't been to a Rasputin music in a long time, I use to visit the one in Campbell when I lived there.

I voted. Since pornography wasn't an option I went ahead and clicked horror.

I got The Strain on DVR, looking forward to watching it.

Just watched WRONG TURN 5 - BLOODLINES, which i had on DVR from the SyFy channel. Really good, full of great kills with great gore. Gore, Gore, and more Gore, and well done gore. My kind of movie!!

Voted as well, but am probably action, followed by horror and then scifi. My perfect movie is all three of those combined, (with porn if it is an 80's horror flic ) with horror being the leading element.

Action leads the way with me since there are more "better" action movies than horror. Action movies are more consistent, with better production values and quality product. Horror has so many different sub genres and wildly inconsistent levels of execution. I couldn't begin to quantify how many times I sat down for a horror movie and, by the time the movie was over, I thought the director actually hated his audience and TRIED to put out the stupidest product, showing zero respect for the audience.

I think a good horror movie is much harder to make than an action movie and why I like this thread to try and cut out some of the extreme losers.
