    I sure I can come up with a few as well but I think I might enjoy picking a few that might Doc Naysay's skin crawl even more.

    I've been waiting for an excuse to watch The Fog (which I got for $3 at Big Lots), so... sweet!

    BTW both are netflix streaming, you are welcome to play along and watch...but comments are limited ONLY to the movie LTI chooses.

    As it turns out, I've actually seen both of these within the past couple of years, but I've seen The Stuff more recently. So, I'm going with The Fog. Besides, there is never a bad reason to watch The Fog or a John Carpenter movie in general.

    Sorry, starting with a bit of a ramble: The Fog has a bit of an unfair edge when it comes to me, because it's right from the time of my childhood when I started to discover horror movies. I did get to see Jaws when I was seven, but that was the only horror movie I saw until I was ten, and my uncle took me to see a double feature of Enter the Dragon and Halloween (strange, yet awesome, double bill). It seemed like there was a real horror boom after that, and I ate it up. Consider this partial list of films from 1980, same year as The Fog:

    Altered States
    The Boogeyman
    The Changeling
    City of the Living Dead
    Fade to Black
    Friday the 13th
    Humanoids from the Deep
    Inferno
    Macabre
    Motel Hell
    Mother's Day
    New Year's Evil
    Prom Night
    The Shining
    Terror Train

    Those are not all gems, and I may have missed some good ones, but that's still a pretty decent list of horror for one calendar year. Plus, including The Fog, three with Jamie Lee Curtis! Of that list, I would place The Fog third, behind The Shining and Altered States with arguments to be made for The Changeling and Inferno, but I'm not sure I'd place it there if this were only my first viewing.

    I consider The Fog just a nice, straightforward ghost story with its share of suspense and scares. Plus, how can you go wrong with the cast? Jamie Lee Curtis, Adrienne Barbeau, Janet Leigh, Hal Holbrook (who, combined with Adrienne, evokes thoughts of Creepshow), and John Houseman! The fog effects still hold up for the most part, frequently very impressively; Dean Cundey's cinematography is frequently beautiful (with definite foreshadowing of the mood he will evoke with Carpenter in The Thing as well); and the film itself just keeps moving forward in true John Carpenter fashion. I've always loved Carpenter's ability to use action in the background to elicit suspense, tension or shock, and the fog often helps him to do so here. Carpenter, Cundey, Bottin and Franco getting wound up for The Thing here.

    This was only the second time I'd seen the film since its 1980 theatrical release, but both times have been within the past couple of years. Things I noticed on these viewings that escaped me previously: the mention of the band The Coupe de Villes; Rob Bottin plays the evil leader Blake; and Darrow Igus of the sketch comedy show Fridays is in it (I did not recognize him even after pausing to get a good look at his face, though).

    In the interest of keeping things brief, I end my babble there.

    You know it really pisses me the **** off when someone signs up for a game then holds it up for everyone else. If you didn't care enough about it to keep it moving for the rest of us then why bother to sign up? All you had to do was tell someone to watch a movie. It's not like we're asking you to find a needle in a ****ing haystack. But I admit I don't know what your schedule is, maybe you were so busy you couldn't spare five seconds to get the game rolling again. So please, when your schedule opens up for 5 or 10 seconds it'd be nice if you would undertake the apparently daunting task of telling one of us to watch a movie. Thanks in advance for sacrificing your valuable time for us.

    Easy, pal. I was just following the rules...

    Others can feel free to watch or not watch but once the "Film Review" of the movie in question is given it's game on for fighting about stuff they got wrong.

    After about three days it will be that persons turn to assign someone else a new Horror Movie.

    So, Diehard, since you seem ready to jump in, the assignment is yours. Sticking in the land of '80s American horror, the film is Rick Sloane's Hobgoblins. It's on Netflix, but not streaming, so if you're really in a hurry, the alternate is Waxwork, the 1988 movie with David Warner, Zach Galligan and Deborah Foreman, which is on Netflix streaming.

    Hobgoblins was a lot of fun. There were so many great lines, like "This is me fake orgasming for you!" and "Sitting on a motorcycle is like sitting on the world's largest vibrator." I also thought it was hilarious that the film's most dramatic battle music took place during a rake fight between two guys trying to impress their girls. The goblins were hilarious too - looked like a cross between a gargoyle and a Furby.

    Okay I select my boy adgy to go next. I've been bugging you for years to watch Noroi: the Curse so I'm gonna make you watch it.



    If by chance you've seen it, watch Heartless on Netflix. But I highly recommend you watch Noroi

    Even if your name isn't adgy watch Noroi, or both
