While not a huge fan of HC I do appreciate the humor that "flowed forth" from it.

So. I'm toying with the idea of starting a thread similar to this but for scifi/fantasy. We, here, keep this one mostly horror and often go into the b or z grade stuff in that genre, which I love. You think there's any traction?

What got me going was Manborg. It is to 80's scifi b movies what House of the Devil is to 80's satanic killer movies. A love letter, if you will to those genre pictures. I know Wizzack and I align on those particular tastes and I think there's room here for sure. Should it be a month challenge like we do in October? I watch horror all year with an eye on October to really cram a ton in and do similar with scifi/fantasy stuff and was just wondering what you pros thought.

I probably would be as interested as I am in this but I'd dabble. Sweet Krull avatar btw!

CFX was posting mask videos today and I was looking at some of the new masks on their site, this one has got to be the best looking mask with clown paint I have ever seen... damn creepy! I'm not really much for the clown horror thing but love this one.

Sounds good to me! I like/love most genres of film but Horror and Sci-Fi are my go to's.

Edit: especially with all of the Sci/ Fantasy movies coming out these days.

You are right Kenobi that mask is really creepy and if I saw that out my window, at night I would scream like a girl!

Do it. I was going to start one late last year but didn't follow through. It's a no-brainer.

John Dies at the End is now available on Netflix WI. It was okay but didn't knock my socks off. Thought to become a cult favorite though.

How about: Sci-Fi For the Movie Guy: From Inner to Outer Space?
post #4853 of 9821
When I was a kid I watched Science Fiction Theater hosted by Truman Bradley. What I didn't know was that the first season was filmed in color because they thought color was going to happen sooner than it did. But did you all know that CBS wanted to do color and HD right after WWII (of course that didn't happen)?

I watched "The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts in Georgia" last night. At least a film that gets the experience of ghosts right and more like what you see in Asian films. It Katie Sackoff from BSG and Abigail Spencer from Sundance's "Rectify" which is also playing on AMC.

Not bad but I want to include those crappy z grade fantasy movies like LOTR. Higher quality stuff like Hawk the Slayer should have its own thread. smile.gif

Schlock, Awe, Swords, and Lasers.

Great title but may I suggest keeping the two separate. Nothing says we can't have two threads. Something about mixing fantasy and sci-fi an unsettled feeling...sort of like eating sushi and drinking egg nog...I have no idea what that means. biggrin.gif

Another entry into the crowded "idiots in the woods" genre, this 1981 movie has some decent moments, but it really doesn't achieve anything new, not counting some beautiful nature scenery. Essentially "Deliverance" as a slasher film, Just Before Dawn puts a group of city slicker smartmouths into backwoods country where they are soon terrorized by an inbred hick monster man who likes to stab first and ask questions later. Time and time again, the idiots ignore warning sign after warning sign, staying in the woods long after a rational person would have fled the scene screaming. George Kennedy plays a lonely forest ranger who tries to warn the kids off, then tries to help when it's probably too late. Despite the lack of any real surprises, I still kind of liked this movie: the woods and waterfalls were quite scenic, and several of the quiet "killer is watching us" scenes were effectively eerie. If the "idiots in the woods" genre creeps you out, give this one a try.

There's a 35mm screening of this one with the director in north Jersey this Friday. This review has me interested. There's also a 35mm screening of Prom Night at the Colonial over in PA with a prom theme, prizes and all that jazz. Dust off the old suit and get bloody or head upstate for some backwoods action?

So was it any good?

Saw Mama this morning. Good ghost story. The flashbacks stood out as nicely done. Not scary but still enjoyable.

Still waiting for GDT to make a great movie.
