Films you watch when you're sick

So I've been pretty sick the last few days and I'm doing my best to quarantine myself. Being the end of flu season and all, I know a lot of people are down for the count for a few days and relay between television and sleep. So, what do you or did you watch while you were hacking away on sick leave? What films do you avoid? And, do you have a favorite go to film?

My list for yesterday and today:
Walking Dead (last two episodes of season three)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)
Scarecrows (1988)
Pumpkinhead
The Fan (1981)
Burnt offerings
Cheap Thrills (2014)

Films I avoid:
None I can think of

Go to film:
Ferris Bueller (It's going on now, lol)

For some reason my go to movie when I'm sick is Wayne's World. I'm not sure why but that movie is infinitely rewatchable for me.

Other choices:

The Burbs
Return of the Living Dead - No matter how sick I am I always yell out "There's bodies in there?!" when they show the cannisters.
Friday the 13th Part 5
I also watch a lot of Mystery Science Theater when I'm sick

Some great calls Suicide! Pretty much everything you listed has been a go to for me, lol.

Hahaha DVD-fanatic, I see the theme you went for! Some goodies no doubt. Pretty much a perfect list. Some gross outs and B movie goodness.

I don't know why, but No Country For Old Men is my go to hang over/sick film, and much like Suicide, MST3K also does wonders for me when I'm under the weather.

Sleepaway Camp: it's just so stupid and entertaining that it makes me feel better.

Back to the Future: my favorite movie

Dawn of the Dead: just so much fun

The first FRIDAY THE 13TH and sometimes PART II. Those films are a general comfort.

Some good choices I see above, but one of the things I like to do is to franchise watch. Last time I was that sick (years ago) I burnt through F13 and ANOES.

Big, cheesy late 70s, 80s juvenile T&A films such as Screwballs , Zapped! and the like.

If I'm laid up in pain and have medication, then it's Dark Crystal all day long.

I'm feeling the 80's vibe you guys are throwing out.

Franchise watching is always fun. I've done it as a young teen with Phantasm, Friday the 13th and ANOES.

And a childhood comfort favorite I forgot to mention was Ghostbusters. I'd watch 1 and 2 back to back (usually falling asleep during 2).

Watched Universal Soldier last night for the first time in ages... man that's a hilarious movie. "He can't hear you..."

Emanuelle in America or Cannibal Holocaust, but when I have the flu I generally go for something light that I don't have to pay attention to, like Super Troopers or Spaceballs.

The Subspecies movies. Normally when you're sick you sleep a lot, and though I do love those movies, they're so slow there's a good chance I'd sleep on them anyway.
