Yesterday's list left off with 172 (Curtains) and this one starts at 169 (Demons). What are 170 and 171?

They're on yesterday's list, which I had misnumbered thanks to a brain fart. (I went 181-180-181-1801-179...) It's fixed now, thanks.

I got Shudder recently and they've got a streaming movie always on when you turn on the channel. For a few days it just started up in the middle of House by the Cemetery, with a just decapitated lady falling down and a little kid freaking out. Then it switches to a family in a station wagon. I've never seen the movie, and I don't know that I want to ruin this little bit of madness by seeing the whole thing.

@matango - Ha ha. I know, right? I've seen that scene like a dozen times now. :D

I saw Hello Mary Lou in the theater in '87. The newspaper ad said: "Warning: Extreme violence, nudity...AND MAY OFFEND RELIGIOUS BELIEFS." My teenage self was like, Fuck yeah! Blasphemy!

It was the confessional scene when Mary Lou asked, "Will you fuck me Father?" No one was offended, everyone just laughed! #coolstorybro

Also, three votes for Lifeforce??? The Funhouse better be on this list somewhere!
