I remember a movie from when I was a little kid, it was on TV. Ya' know, before all that cable and satellite.... back in the stone ages. Anyway, I think it was called Mudman or The Mudman. It was about these people who are trapped on an island, with a monster made out of mud!
They cut off it's hand, and it just goes and gets some mud to make a new one! The detached hand also attacks them when they don't expect it.
I sure it was a crappy movie, but it scared the crap out of me when I was like 6 or something. I doubt anyone will ever see it, so I will spoil the ending by telling you the mud monster dissolves in salt, so they trick it into falling into saltwater. It turns out another kid in the neighborhood also saw it. He later told me he was so scared he went to the kitchen and took a salt shaker to bed with him!

I don't think you can go wrong with Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness. I'm a sucker for the campy horror movies!

The Legend of Boggy Creek

Watched this as an eight year old and didn't sleep right for weeks.........

Although not traditional, The Thing (1982) is pretty scary. I watched it for the first time the other day. Holy crap!

"Commander In Chief"

Wait, that's TV.....

John Carpenter's remake of The Thing. Classic.

Phantasm

I'm so into Rob Zombies new horror flicks. He takes these movies to a whole new level. The Devil's Rejects is a must see.

Another one to think about is, "Earnest goes trick or treating." You can go wrong with this guy. LOL

Exorcist
Dawn, Day, and Return of the Living Dead
The Thing
An American Werewolf in London
Evil Dead II

Back when I was a major horror movie geek Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street were still pretty hot movies. I don't think I would get the same thrill from them now though.

I need to watch Phantasm again... I hope they play it on TV. I used to watch that every year.

Here are some other ones I remember watching back in the day.
American Gothic
The Stuff
The Blob (not a terrible remake IMHO)
Re-Animator
From Beyond
Flesh Eating Mothers
Hellraiser
Hellraiser II
Braindead (aka Dead Alive)
Pet Sematary
Night of the Creeps
Deadly Friend (the ending was lame though)

Has anyone ever seen the movie "Brainscan?" I don't know why but I really thought this movie was great. Another good flick would be Maximum Overdrive.

Holly crap! Why have we not thrown "EVIL DEAD" in here? Evil Dead 2 that is.

I don't know about you all, but I'm picking up the Horror Classics 50 Movie Pack this week. I'm ashamed to say I've never seen White Zombie, and don't own most of the rest on there.

With Edward Furlong (John Connor from T2). It was an ok movie. Kinda weird. I don't remember much from it now... I saw it back when it first came out... on video. Wow over ten years ago.

Trilogy Of Terror...........................maybe it's because I was a wee lad when I first saw it but it scared the bejezzus out of me. Can't remember the other two stories but the Zuni Fetish doll....

Now there's a series that's lost its way. Every sequel beyond II is absolute crap. I'm surprised Doug Bradley can live with himself making such garbage.
When I thought it couldn't get any lamer than CD-Man cenobyte they follow up with Pinhead in Space.

I wish they did a sequel to The Nightbreed. That movie had a lot of potential. They certainly left it open for one, but I guess it didn't do well enough.

I only ever saw I and II....guess there is no need to go on, huh? II was the one that showed Pinhead when he was a British Offcier in WWI, and got the box, opened it to become Pinhead right?

I need to pick those up on DVD....

I'm not sure underrated is the word I'd use. I think something closer the steaming pile of shit would better describe that one.


The Devil's Rejects
Worth checking out? I've been wondering. The chick looks kinda hot.

Nah, now Bordello of Blood was quite shitty. I really liked Demon Knight for some reason


The Devil's Rejects

Personally I thought Devil's Rejects was one of the best horror movies this year. I even liked it better than Land of the Dead. I thought House of a Thousand Corpses was horrible, but someone Zombie pulled off quite a decent flick with this one (especially the soundtrack for the movie). Highly recommend you check it out, it should be out in DVD within a month or so.
