I've already seen it and don't liking it much the first time, but should I give The Funhouse another chance? I haven't seen it in a long time.
Humanoids from the Deep -cheesy sleezy fun, must have.
California Axe Murders - cheap 70's exploitation of sorts, worth a watch, but can be somewhat dull.
Anthropophagus -good zombie flick. must have.
Madhouse - Assuming you mean "There was a Little Girl", I've only watched it once a while back and thought it was a decent slasher from that great era.
Island of Death - So sleazy and funny, I found it to be a must have. Not for the faint of heart.
Night Train Murders - never seen it.
Funhouse - must have, cmon guy.

Think of all the consoling and snuggling we could have done Doberella.

Seeing it in widescreen didn't change a thing for me- the movie never got off the ground. Probably doesn't help that the film's first scene is of a boy practically trying to rape his own sister. I know people like Rob Zombie would get a kick out of crap like that but, seriously: what the fuck?

That's quite the interpretation there...

reminds me of that scene from Elves...

"I'm your sister!"
"Yeah, and you've got fucking big tits and I'm going to tell everybody I saw them!"

classic.

I think DVDF9 is definitely misinterpreting the scene, though. sure, the T&A is there for the audience to enjoy, but from the kid's perspective, he's just trying to scare his sister. She's old enough to know that what he does in inappropriate, but he's not a teenager, he probably hasn't hit puberty yet, so there's nothing sexual about it to him.

I adore Elves! So many hilarious lines! From "Santa said 'oral'" to "Shhh... it's snowing..." SO Underrated!

Night Of The Demons also does the little brother gag. "Whoa, bodacious boobies sis!"

Awkward, for sure, but I think "rape" is a strong word for that.

I've reviewed both on the site, but I really love Eyes of a Stranger. Great slasher flick, one that's just on the cusp of the upper echelon of the sub-genre. Great setting, Savini effects work, stylish direction, Jennifer Jason Leigh and some nasty kills. Doesn't get enough love.

Dead & Buried has its admirers, but it's a cold film without characters to really latch onto. Well directed and a good concept, though. I just never really connected with it.

Is Cannibal Ferox any good? What do y'all think of it?

I remember renting the VHS under the title "Make Them Die Slowly" and the only reason why was because of the warning about some high number of kills. Man, was I disappointed at the time. I watched it again recently and found it slightly more enjoyable only because I knew what I was in for. I dunno, it's better than most jungle cannibalism films, but I'm not a huge fan of those to begin with.

I found it to be slightly better than CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST but that may be because I saw it first...this is more of the same. Just be warned that this also has animals being killed for gory filler. Just plain lazy, if you ask me.

Holy shit! I can't believe Killer Party isn't talked about more often, or that I'd even really heard anything about it previous. Pretty much Hell Night meets Evil Dead 2, and so much damn fun! I enjoyed the fact that it swapped genres as it moved along, which usually doesn't work, but here it did - keeping the pace frantic and always engaging. This horror-comedy should have been a staple if you ask me.
