Do you guys even read Sutter Cane?

This was a weird one for sure.

28 days...6 hours...42 minutes...12 seconds
The Thing
Big Trouble in Little China
The Fog
They Live
Ghosts of Mars
The Ward
Escape from LA

Escape From New York & In The Mouth of Madness are two films I saw so long ago that I feel like I need to revisit them to properly place them.

Suspect's Reviews

for me it s neck and neck between, Halloween 1978 and the thing 1982

Definitely The Fog and The Thing.

The first time I saw The Fog, I was in a beachfront hotel during a Nor'easter, surrounded by water and somehow The Fog seemed rather calming.

The Thing is one of several versions of the Mathieson story, Who Goes There, and really nails the feel of being in a remote, frigid outpost with a monster on the loose and no help from outside. It gets even worse because the monster is a shape shifter.

❤️Dominic Sherwood+Katherine McNamara❤️
probably Halloween movie trilogy

Welcome to the human race...
He directed the first one but co-wrote the second - beyond that, it's just character credits and the occasional score.
Iro is to reviews as Kubrick is to films.

Ghouls, vampires, werewolves... let's party.
yeah if you could return to mofo, that would be great..

Not right now, I'm kinda busy. In fact, I'm going to have to ask you to go ahead and come back another time.

Prince of Darkness doesn’t get the attention it deserves.
Christine and They Live are also pretty good. I’d rate them ahead of Big Trouble in Little China and The Fog in fact.

Halloween comes first
The thing
In the mouth of madness

I liked Halloween, then the Thing. Rest are just all a good one time watch.

My favorite filmmaker growing up. I’ve beaten some of his movies to death, but:
1. The Thing
2. Escape from New York
3. Big Trouble in Little China
4. In the Mouth of Madness
5. They Live
6. The Fog
7. Masters of Horror: Cigarette Burns
8. Assault on Precinct 13
9. Vampires
10. Prince of Darkness
11. Escape from LA
12. Halloween (I’m pretty much desensitized to it at this point )
13. Ghosts of Mars
14. Body Bags
15. Christine
16. Starman
17. Dark Star
18. Masters of Horror: Pro-Life (only vaguely remember it though)
19. Memoirs of an Invisible Man
20. Someone’s Watching Me
21. Village of the Damned (maybe the only one that I’d say I dislike)

I still haven’t watched Elvis or The Ward, but the latter has been on my watchlist for around a decade.

Vampires - James Woods was terrific in the lead role.
