  • Anyone who listens to Gaylords of Darkness or follows me on "social" "media" knows that I have had a quite a journey with The Green Inferno. To sum it up: I have seen The Green Inferno! What can I say, 2020 continues to be a wild ride.
  • I watched The Dorm That Dripped Blood for the first and only time very very early in Final Girl's life and I think it's way past high time for a rewatch. I bet I'd appreciate it a lot more now. 
  • Heck yeah, The House of Seven Corpses! Way underrated/underseen and a good, sorta creepy time.
  • Oh, The Granny. It could hail from no year other than 1995! It is a very dumb movie and I can't help but love it to absolute pieces.

I found The Green Inferno kind of frustrating, tone-wise. Were we supposed to take it seriously? Was it meant to be a satire? The movie didn't really work either way, in my opinion.

Whoever put Green Butchers on this list gets a handful of claps from me.

@goblin -- oh yeah, tonally it is all over the place! It's a mess. And I was definitely expecting something much more "extreme."

Oh, The Devils! I'm not sure it's a horror film, but it is a Ken Russell film, which means it is an *experience*. Well worth a watch. I have the Grudge out from the Library, sitting on my DVD player, waiting for a rewatch.

I love the Fury. It's got one of my favorite dude gets blowed up scenes.

I need to rewatch the Hitcher.

Susandoku said...

I also LOVE the Fury!! And I had forgotten all about the Dunwich Horror. So much fun.

Peter said...

I feel the Dunwich Horror is more fun to remember than watch again, but I won’t tuck your yum.

This is an expressly NO GATEKEEPING, NO YUCKING A YUM zone, particularly during the countdown :)
