232. I Walked with a Zombie -- 1943, Jacques Tourneur
231. Insidious -- 2010, James Wan

214. Nosferatu the Vampyre -- 1979, Werner Herzog
213. Popcorn -- 1991, Mark Herrier & Alan Ormsby

What a nicely varied list we have here today! But only two votes for Lake Mungo, are you people nuts? That movie deserves two million votes!

Also, I love Killer Party so much. If you haven't seen it, well, this video spoils the last few seconds of it...but the song is so worth it!

I still have my DVD of LUDLOW.

You have got to read the user-generated plot summary of KILLER PARTY at IMDB! It's like a twelve year old boy describing the movie to you!

Stacie Ponder said...

Haha, that was so good! It was basically "Ooh! Ooh, and then--"

@Cash, I will take that as a compliment! Thanks for picking one up in the first place!

I obviously have to see Killer Party. Have you seen Murder Party? I loved it so so much.

Ludlow got the same number of votes as Night of the Comet! Now there's a compliment!

Stacie Ponder said...

I have not seen Murder Party! But I've liked everything else from Jeremy Saulnier so I have to check it out for sure. And yeah, Killer Party kind of flies under the radar a lot but it's so fun. Crazy and almost unclassifiable. And that theme song! Apparently the three lead actresses sang it, which is why it sounds so amateur and so awesome.

I was upset when I saw Insidious. When I figured out the gimmick, I wanted someone to say, "The ghosts are not inside the house! The ghosts are Inside O Us!" (Music sting).

See what I did there? Eh eh?

Poli said...

Oh, Jeepers Creepers. You didn't make my last, but I do kinda love you, weird plot shenanigans and all.

I'll be honest, I was expecting something from my list to appear in this section, but it didn't, which means it got at least 3 votes, which makes me so happy!

Is Ludlow still purchasable? I figure I can purchase it with the Friday the 13th book if it is.

Stacie Ponder said...

Ludlow is no longer available, I'm afraid! Looking at this, I can't believe it came out in 2010. Geez how old am I--*turns to dust*

J. Skel LaTour said...

Ooh, so now we have rare collectors edition DVDs? ;)
Sorry if the vote caused undue weirdness, but I stand by it.

Someone needs to write a whole damn book about how The Last Man On Earth influenced so much that came after it. Maybe Vincent Price's most overlooked/underrated performance, too.
