It just felt tonally similar to Lost Boys to me. And that bloke digging the hole in the garden reminded me a lot of him in Lost Boys who's porking the mother and turns out to be a vampire. I don't think I'd much rate Creepshow and the like nowadays either, but as a kid, I loved that one with the mummy who pulls brains out of people's noses.

It really is utter crap. Someone on here a few months ago was, in all seriousness, proclaiming it as the greatest vampire film ever. Don't remember who it was, though, so hold the witchhunt for now. Investigations are ongoing.

Joel Schumacher can just fuck off.

Talking of horrror films that do a good job of buolding suspense, which are light on scares, but it all comes to a great conclusion I would have to put out the film House Of The Devil. http://youtu.be/6SOur3WwZvM The film is about 3 years old, but it's based in the 80's and if you didn't know otherwise you could easily mistake for a cleaned up print of a film from that decade. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it, but it is a film that needs your attention, my girlfriend was bored with it and spent most of the film dicking about with her phone.


House of the Devil is lovely - the screeners were sent out in giant clamshell VHS cases, which I would absolutely love (I love collecting ephemera like that, one day I'll have somewhere to put it, along with my Floyd Mayweather Wrestlemania money, and "How to be a Successful Model" by Viju Krem, the ballerina from Bloodsucking Freaks). Ti West did direct The Roost, though, which I was really looking forward to, but which was pretty weak.

Anyone seen Trick 'r' Treat?


Want to hear something really annoying? I have a VHS promo copy of the House of the Devil. I won it at one of the double bill things I mentioned earlier. Unfortunately... I lack a VHS player. So I still haven't seen it.

Candyman? Brilliant, beautiful film. If you're looking at it as a slasher film, you may disagree, but that's because it's not trying to be a slasher film. It's more Legend of Sleepy Hollow than it is Friday the 13th.


I'm with you there. Its more like a emo Nightmare on Elm Street.


I'm not seeing the similarities to Trick 'R Treat and Lost Boys either. Lost Boys is fun but its no classic. Anyone that thinks its the greatest Vampire film ever is deluded. Its far more like a less good Creepshow. Really like Trick 'R Treat having said that its great fun. Like a EC comic book or Eerrie Indiana.

Any love for Night of the Creeps? I never saw it on original release. I'm not even sure it came out on DVD here but I took a punt on the Blu ray and its great fun. Tom Atkins is amazing and should be in everything.

I don't understand why Trick 'r' Treat is supposed to be anything like the Lost Boys either.

All this talk about "The Exorcist" and "Exorcist 3" remind me how unbelievably awful "The Exorcist 2" was. I don't know what they were trying to do there, but, wow.

It had a disco soundtrack too, which was also unbelievably strange.

Here is the trailer..

"The Exorcist 2: The Heretic" Trailer. I'll add a NSFW just for be safe.

I saw Night of the creeps years ago and never really paid it much attention. I saw it again at a midnight double bill in February and its great, campy fun. I love how well they play up on the 50s creature feature style with an 80s twist

When The Exorcist was finally released it came in a boxset with the 2 sequels and the only positive thing I can say about The Heretic is that it was so bad it lulled me into a false sense of security and low expectations for the third which, as mentioned before, has that pant staining moment.

I know it's a comedy, but I have a soft spot for Fright Night as well, I'd probably put that in my Top 50.

I love Lost Boys, but in the way I love The Goonies,Pump Up The Volume and Heathers. They're not the greatest films ever but they are absolutely in the zone of my childhood memories.

Has anyone else seen Stage Fright AKA Deliria?

Cheap as chips 80s slasher movie set in a theatre, with a killer wearing a ludicrous owl mask. It's very, very silly, but actually quite effective in places.

There's a scene near the end where the last survivor (who the killer doesn't know about) is watching the killer as he sets up the bodies on stage, then just sits serenely amongst them. It's creepy as fuck.
