I'm loving these lists. Will have to sit down with them when I have more time...
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Dec 2 5:52
Aww...I liked Zombie Strippers. It's campy and silly, but in a good way I thought. I highly recommend though that you continue avoiding Repo!...I'd like my time back from that one. Definitely watch The Strangers though.
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Dec 2 11:05
Hmm, I thought 'Repo!' was kind of charming in it's own way. But then again I didn't expect a whole lot from it and only sat down with it in the first place because I found out Nivek Ogre of Skinny Puppy had a supporting role.

Guys, how do you manage to watch so many horror movies? Love those lists....
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Dec 6 0:05
Renting in bulk... LOL

Even when I was working for a video store and got so many 'free rentals', I was still the highest rental customer :P
Posted: 3 years, 2 months ago at Jan 30 12:14
I see, the only rental shop around has closed like 2 years ago... Anyway, it's/was cheaper to buy DVDs, the rental shop was so expensive....

Just saw "The Strangers" and it was not bad at all! Only 6 movies seen on this list...
Posted: 2 years ago at Apr 19 2:44
Eden Lake was a tough watch for me. I enjoyed it to the extent you can enjoy a film of that subject matter. I can't see myself watching it again. I'm glad you gave it such a strong rating, it's a quite powerful piece of cinema just quite hard to stomach due to sheer brutality.

Interesting list!
