I just watched Midnight Meat Train but feel comfortable enough to call it a favorite horror movie of mine!

It's as bloody as it looks and sounds, but so incredibly well executed.

I enjoyed it as a straightforward chop-em-up, but wow "favorite" is strong praise.

I have a somewhat lengthy list. ;)

Seriously, though, I do think it's one of the strongest horror films I've seen in a while. Someone recommended me read the story once, amongst other Barker stories, but I haven't yet.

I just picked up the new special edition DVD of The Thing. I'm not sure what the other edition had on it, but this new edition has an 80 minute documentary that's pretty good, plus some other features that I haven't went through.

I've seen the original Thing from Another World and I think Carpenter had the best idea for a "remake," if you can even consider it that. Carpenter actually went back to the original source - the short story (I think the title is "Who Goes There?" or something like that), which the original movie strayed from quite a bit. That was a good idea, since certainly a lot of people probably weren't happy that it was being remade in the first place.
I hadn't realized I'd known so much about the original storyline back then! :D I watched Carpenter's The Thing last night, after having seen the original The Thing From Another World earlier in the week. I really like both films a great deal! I loved the fact that Carpenter didn't decide to remake the whole original situation, but rather picks up after the Norwegians have had their encounter with the Thing. We see the video footage of them uncovering it from the ice, which meant, for me, that Carpenter was saying that this had already been done before--back in 1951--so there was no reason for him to repeat it.

Christopher, have you seen Audition yet?



I loved this movie! But if you haven't seen it yet, don't read a thing about it -- just watch it. Not ONE word.

All I'll tell you is that it's a Japanese film, so you'd need to watch it with subtitles.

It could have happened. I learned Korean.  (Well, I tried to, anyway)

So don't even look it up on IMDb?

:D  I guess I would have had time!

Subtitles aren't a problem.

Don't even look it up on the IMDb.  Don't read a word about it. Just watch it. And then, tell me if you loved it, or hated it. I've recommended it to a few people, and some don't want to ever talk to me again. Others have loved the recommendation. But, you can't read about it first.

Don't even read the DVD cover. Not a word.

I mentioned in the 2019 movie thread about seeing the newest version of Black Christmas. I also said the original is probably among my favorite horror movies, but I don't think I'd ever listed it here (I didn't look through the whole thread). Anyhow, I watched this one again yesterday and it's definitely a favorite of mine. Every bit as good, if not better than Halloween.

I agree Christopher. The original Black Christmas is one of my favs too. It's defenately in my top 5 horror films. Possibly in my top 3. It's that good. I'll be watching it sometime next week for sure.
