    For me it has to be the Italian Post-Apocalyptic film of the 80's :fire: :fire: :fire: :fire:

    Man they are so cool, sexy, gory and funny at the same time.

    I'd like to say Italian zombie flicks and spaghetti westerns. Just about any cinematic genre exploited by Italian filmmakers manages to become more... extreme? Spaghetti westerns, giallo, zombies, etc. When they're good, they're very, very good. When they're bad, they're better. ;)

    Yeah, Post Apocalyptic films for me too, along with zombie films. Can't get enough of either!

    Did I forget to mention Kaiju Eiga? Yes, add Kaiju Eiga (giant monsters) to my list. They rule too.

    For me it's Slasher Films, I can't get enough of them, especialy 80's Slasher films, and Italian Horror, Crime, and Italian Exploitation films!! Those are my two favorites!!

    I agree. I love zombies. The recent "zombie" trend has sent me reeling back into the 70's and 80's. I feel like I'm chasing after a dying breed...no pun intended. They don't make good zombie movies anymore. I love Romero, but I feel Land of the Dead is going to be terrible.
    Welp, we'll see what develops...

    I'm all about the slashers. I prefer 80s slashers, but really, I am not that picky. Kill the teenagers and I'm good.

    That pretty much covers it for me too. The more fucked up, the better. Give me a pile of Something Weird discs and I'm a happy camper. :D

    It flip-flops between slashers (esp. 80's gratuitous nudity style) and trashy sleazy exploitation flicks. Zombie movies rock too, but I like slashers a bit more.

    Well, it's all good.

    Today I will plumb for.......

    50's Sci-fi B movies. I'd hate to be without those. It's wonderful how wrong they were about... well everything.

    Of course, it's a mood thing :)
