Lesser-known films

As most of you know, JayTrotter has provided us with a wealth of films to check out...primarily for those of us with more adventurous tastes. I've got a long way to go to catching up on all of these.

Of the films listed here that I have seen, I love all but one of them. So yes, methinks I need to check out some if not all the rest of them.

Films watched so far: 8/18
Films marked for watching: 2

Liked the ones here I've seen too, so I'll check out some others & see what I think.

Films watched so far: 6/34
Films marked for watching: 4

Seen almost half of what's on this list, and of those maybe one of them I could have done without. Good odds.

Films watched so far: 24/50
Films marked for watching: 1

Seen 10 of these & only disliked one of those, so I should probably check more out.

Films watched so far: 13/85
Films marked for watching: 4

Of the 18 I've seen there are only a couple I think aren't much worth watching, so odds are there's more good films here to discover.

Listal's top-rated films that less than 200 people have watched. Lots of good stuff here. The ones I've seen I have rated between 7 & 10, so I'm actually interested in more than whatever it says I've marked below.

Films watched so far: 11/288

The films I've seen on Hexenkult's list all have ratings of 7 to 10, so I definitely need to check out some others.

I dig offbeat documentaries, and of the few I've seen on johanlefourbe's list there's only one I disliked. That one was too damn weird for me.

Films watched so far: 9/90

VierasTalo's list highlights films in 3 categories that showed less than 100 Listal users had watched them when he created it. His brief descriptions have intrigued me & so I'll be checking more of them out.

Great Horror movies

All 4 films on this list that I've seen are easily among my favorites too, so I'm interested in checking out the rest.

The most comprehensive list I know of for Horror movies. As a proud fan of the Horror genre, this list serves as a great resource. Admittedly a lot of what's here I'll never see because it's terrible (as bad horror movies far outnumber the good/Great ones), but I'm definitely interested in the better films it contains.

Films watched so far: 290/2174
Films marked for watching: 109

Seen a lot of these on Jamie's list, and only a few I didn't think were worth my checking out. So it's a safe bet most of the ones here I haven't seen yet are worth my time.

Films watched so far: 192/314
Films marked for watching: 29

When it comes to Horror (and films in general too), jaytoast & I tend to agree more often than not. So his lists are a good guide to the best & worst in the genre from 2000 to present.

Films watched so far: 107/643

Rath has excellent taste in Horror. So far of his favorites listed here there's only one I disliked, which is pretty good odds.

I don't entirely agree with retroCRUSH's order here, but from what I've seen they're at least mostly right about the stellar performances they singled out in their list. That only encourages me to seek out the ones I haven't seen so I can check them out.

We all have our areas of interest when it comes to movies. Most of the time I have more films on my radar than I can possibly watch, but I'm always looking for other good/Great films to check out. Each list contained here has films that someone has deemed worth the time & effort to sit down with, and thus are good resources for movie recommendations.

By no means is this an all-inclusive list of lists. Rather everything listed here has caught my eye & led me to conclude that I should return to them in the future to check out the listed films I haven't seen. All lists have been listed in alphabetical order. Oh, and my "marked for watching" numbers don't always reflect how many I actually want to watch, just what Listal shows that I've bothered to mark so far.

If you have a list that you think fits in with the ones that are here, please let me know so I can check it out.

Thanks for the inclusion and yes... "The History of Horror" is also my #1 go-to list for horror films. Hum, why do I feel that I might be creating a similar list... hum... so many films to watch...

Thanks for the inclusion of my under rated movie list, I recently added History Of The World Part I to it. I will have to start checking out some of those horror lists to get some ideas for when it's time for the next horrorfest :)

Oh, this is an actual list with original content! Cool format, and nice to see people digging that list o' mine.
