From what I can remember, It Follows, Bad Taste, and Train to Busan are all pretty good. The Babysitter was surprisingly good too.

The rest I either haven't seen, or it's been too long to say anymore.

I am curious which version of Carrie that is though

I've seen most of the ones I've listed. I haven't seen Texas Chainsaw 2 or Bad Taste, but otherwise I've seen all of them and they are all at least decent.

It's the original Carrie. They also have one of the remakes lol.

I was thinking to myself randomly today, what was the first bad movie I went out of my way to watch KNOWING it was a bad movie? I came up with From Justin to Kelly, the 2003 contractually-obligated American Idol movie. It was so bad Kelly Clarkson only did it because she was contractually obligated. And I actually went into the city 20 minutes away to see it because the local theater wasn't playing it. I KNEW it was shit, but I HAD to see it because it looked hilarious. I was 15. It was worth it because boy was it bad. Random factoid: It costars Anika Noni Rose, who ended up voicing Princess Tiana in the Princess and the Frog and also costarred in Dreamgirls. So one person's career wasn't ruined.



Anyone else have stories?

For good ones, should watch the wailing and chopping mall
Def would cosign on Chopping Mall.

The Wailing is over 2.5 hours long and I'm not sure I want to commit to something that long when I'm hosting. I'm still nursing a stupid ass infection and I'm on est and that would mean we'd be done well after midnight. If I were well, I'd def be open to it.

I'm cool with slotting in Chopping Mall as the first movie unless there are any objections. I'm open to any suggestions for #2 as long as it's 2 hrs or less.

Reminder: Good(ish) Horror Movie Night tonight, 8:30 PM ET, will post the link here around 8.

Will kick it off with Chopping Mall. Second movie is TBD, but since Chopping Mall is a silly movie, something more serious would be good for the second. Hoping to keep it 2 hours or less if at all possible because I'm STILL under the weather. Will be something free on Amazon Prime and Netflix US- see upthread for a not quite comprehensive list. Planning to nap today so I have the stamina for tonight.

I really doubt I will be able to do this months viewing. Pretty sure my internet is going to be turned off by then.

Anyways I’m watching Howling 2 tonight after watching Howling last night.

Ho-ly Shit

Everyone involved in this movie was on crack. I have no fucking clue what I’m watching. Christopher Lee is in this shit but he looks like he downed a whole battle of Valium before each take to ease his soul. I literally spit Diet Coke out of my nose as they did that joke mini net scene from Kung Pow but seriously. And I lost it as the werewolf actor was trying to help them spread the net over himself to make it look like it actually covered more than just his chest.

I take back any other suggestion I gave, you all HAVE to watch this shit. It’s unbelievable. It’s on Amazon Prime Video.

Okay, I've seen bits of this and I agree that we should watch it.

Do you need to watch Howling to understand it?

So my health has been a trashfire and I'm tired from it and work. Was trying to figure out what to do......... and Troll 2 popped up. It's on Amazon, may as well!

Also, I watched The Lawnmower Man Director's Cut (or most of it- it's 2hrs 20min long and I had to get up early for work) with another group last night. It was... a film. Definitely worth checking out for bad movie fans. I'm not sure I'd go with the Director's Cut though- I think most of the stuff you need to see is in the regular version anyway. There's a reason why Stephen King sued to remove his name from the movie title, marketing, and credits.

Per wiki:
The film was originally titled Stephen King's The Lawnmower Man, but King successfully sued the producers for attaching his name to the film and stated in court documents that the film "bore no meaningful resemblance" to his story.

After two court rulings in King's favor, New Line still did not comply and initially released the home video version as Stephen King's The Lawnmower Man. The success of the unrated version alerted King to New Line's continued defiance of the order that his name be stricken from the film's credits and all marketing as the back covers stated "Based on a Story by Stephen King". A third court order was needed to force the studio's compliance. As before, the court upheld the two prior judgments, but it took the extra step of imposing a penalty of $10,000 directly payable to King for every day New Line remained in contempt by defying the order. Additionally, the studio would have to forfeit all profits earned on the film during that same period.

We still on for tomorrow? I can part host or host entirely if there's another thing on Amazon US you'd want to watch.

In Bad Movie News, Peter Jackson is doing 4K restorations of Bad Taste, Dead Alive, and Meet the Feebles!

I'm uncertain if I'll be able to make it tomorrow, have some family related stuff up in the air right now. But don't let that stop you guys from watching something, if I can't make it.

And very cool about the 4k restorations

Ponn you were absolutely right about Howling 2. Absolutely batshit movie. There's also a Howling 3! We should watch that sometime; it sounds even crazier.

And that ending credit and song was just like what the hell?! I loved her outfit though, it was like straight out of zone of Enders or a jrpg.

Right, I've been meaning to say. There was some talk in the Discord late last week of stepping up to a twice monthly schedule (more movies, yay!)

So yes, 30th for sure, but also this Friday, if people are up for it. But since people might obviously be unavailable due to US Thanksgiving, we can save themed movies for the 30th

I have Poultrygeist, which I've never successfully sat through in its entirety. It is... it's something.

I'm sure there's others though

Ah, forgot about Poultrygeist.

Too bad Eli Roth never made Thanksgiving a feature length film.

Okay, if we're doing it tomorrow I may have to miss the first movie.
I have classes until probably 4:30 or 5:30, and then I have to get a new ID and pick up a parcel...

Edit: nevermind, I just got an email saying the lab is cancelled, so I get off at 3:30 at the latest.
May still be a little late, though, depending on how long the ID thing takes...

Starting shortly. While I have Fist of the North Star currently setup, I have no issues if people would prefer to watch something else.

Sorry all. My move didn’t go so smoothly. I injured my leg loading the truck and because I have a crappy immune system it got infected and spread to both of my legs. I spent a week in the hospital, celebrated my birthday with a hospital oatmeal cookie. I’m hopefully on the mend and will be able to join in for the December watch.

Sorry to hear that, hope you recover quickly. And happy belated birthday
