    I have a hard time with the 'suspend disbelief' thing so horror movies are usually just barely good enough to make fun of.
    The Serpent and the Rainbow. Very good voodoo movie that only gets unreal at the end of the movie. Old movie but a great thriller.

    I just read the wikipedia entry on this...yikes. Apparently something else happened there earlier this month: "On the 8th of January 2016 tourists contacted the police having found the body of an approximately 50-year-old male in the area. Police informed EMERCOM who are set to conduct an investigation in better weather.[10][11][12] It was further reported that the tourists had also gone missing soon after discovering the body. [13]"

    That is really freaky . I wonder what's going on up there.

    I tracked down Devil's Pass and watched it, just now. It's okay, not quite real bad IMO

    The great, Darren McGavin as Carl Kolchak . . . The Night Stalker, for myself, easily one of coolest, iconic show's of my adolescence! Oh, the irony...how I would end up stocking shelves on a graveyard shift. The made-for-television movie, The Night Stalker, (1972), was the highest rated TV movie of it's day. A sequel, The Night Strangler, (1973), followed, then the '74', TV series.

    Not really 'Horror Movies' per se, but I've been binge watching The Twilight Zone and X-Files.

    My 8 year old is really digging the Twilight Zone, surprisingly. So much so we watch it before school with Breakfast.

    Them old shows that didn't rely on Special FX really had to work to gnaw at your nerves, but it's just good old TV.

    Anybody see The Witch, yet? I went yesterday with a fellow horror movie fan & we both really enjoyed it. It's getting 88% ratings from critic's on Rotten Tomatoes. While far from perfect, the plot builds rather slowly, the period accurate, old English accents were sometimes annoying, (subtitles, historical background & other extras, would be a welcome addition to any subsequent DVD). Without giving much away, we enjoyed it's historical, folktale plot, excellent acting, costumes, sets & simmering pace. Despite its flaws, I'd definitely recommend this movie, but be forewarned, it's hardly your typical, slasher, thrill ride.

    I tried to get into a free preview screening for the with, but about 2 to 3 times as many people showed up as the theater could hold. I'm seeing it tonight.

    Yup, saw it yesterday morning after six months of anticipation… and it did not disappoint. Definitely not for everyone, though, and MANY people have reported having difficulty discerning the dialogue in the film; don't know if it is the dialect or technical sound issues, but I had difficulty in parts as well. But's that's really my biggest quibble.

    Looks like we're on the same page...subtitles wouldn't hurt.

    I bought a copy of The Babadook & The Conjuring...TB was terrific for the 2nd time, about to watch the latter for the first time. Turns out, I'd already seen TC, with my memory, it's all new again in a year...:confused:

    I did see one on Netflix the other weekend that I enjoyed.

    Mildy scary but funny and clever.

    "Housebound". Its not your usual ghost story.

    I saw that Housebound one, not too bad. That Scarlet Johannsen one looks promising, as in, she looks hot

    Both "All Hallows Eve" and "All Hallows Eve 2" are pretty good. they are the "vignette' style, so things don't get stale
