FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE, so beware yon spoilers!

A call to arms!

So I'm sitting here having the darndest time- THE DARNDEST TIME I SAY- deciding what the next Film Club selection should be. The last couple of weeks have been largely movie-free for me, and now I don't know what I feel like. Supernatural? Classic? Slasher? Something I've seen already? Italian? I just can't figure out my feels.

Help me out! List some suggestions in the comments and we'll see what shakes out. While I can research and find out how readily available a movie might be, I do implore you: consult my reviews list before naming a film to see if I've already written about it.

Here is a picture of the late Macdonald Carey of television's Days of Our Lives to reward you in advance for your efforts.

Eyes Without a Face! I've been wanting to write about it for a long time now. So sad, so creepy, so strongly feminist (imho). Plus it has Alida Valli in it. AKA (apropos of almost nothing) The Horror Chamber of Dr. Faustus.

How about going back to your Shocktober posts and picking the highest one on the list that you have haven't seen yet?

Mayhem Film Festival said...

THE SEVENTH VICTIM

Or

FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET

Lake Mungo.

Sandisan said...

I notice you haven't reviewed any of the Child's Play movies, several of which are on Netflix Instant. And there's always Sleepaway Camp. Or if you want something higher quality that's not necessarily a horror movie, Oldboy.

Drew said...

I think it is time you finally shared your feelings about Martyrs with the world. Plus, it would give me a great opportunity to rewatch it. :)

Stacie Ponder said...

Oh my gaaaaahhhd you guys all have great suggestions. Which, to be honest, isn't helping me narrow it down any! :D

Duel

I discuss it (and Insidious) here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwbbdTQEVwg&feature=c4-overview&list=UUWfXClVyfnWWCVHVGzWFN-Q

Am I a jerk for posting a link to my own stuff. I've never done it before.

Stacie Ponder said...

When all you're doing is linking to your own content that has absolutely nothing to do with the original post...it's pretty jerky. :)

bless

Miskatonic said...

Crap! I've never thought of myself as a jerk before. I guess it's time to face facts.

But wait! I have a defense. I'm suggesting you review Duel. The link has me talking about why I like Duel in the hopes it will influence you to cover it.

Am I still a jerk?

Stacie Ponder said...

Ah! This is acceptable. I didn't get that drift in your original comment. Once again a jerky-free zone!

Marvin the Macabre said...

Lords of Salem, because I know you're dying to hate another Rob Zombie flick.

Billy Farquhar said...

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, The House that Screamed (aka Finishing School). You can watch it here:

"The Killer Must Kill Again" is great little giallo in the vein of "The Black Belly of the Tarantula."

Will said...

Oh, definitely Entrance (2012). A really eerie mumblecore horror in the style of Ti West that totally blew me away with its ending.

Chris Hewson said...

There's The House That Dripped Blood, a fun Amicus anthology horror.

matango said...

[REC]3. I like it, but many don't seem to.

You're Next?

Diana Rogers said...

I don't have any titles to suggest I just wanted to thank you for the MacDonald Carey picture. Love me some Tom Horton.

Charles Gee said...

Here's 10 I watched this past Shocktober in no particular order.

We Are What We Are (Mexico, 2010)
The Loved Ones (Australia, 2009)
Amer (France, 2009)
Jug Face (US, 2013)
Habit (US, 1995)
Calvaire (Belgium, 2005)
Wake in Fright (Australia, 1971)
The Night Flyer (US, 1997)
Terror Tract (US, 2000)
The Lords of Salem (US, 2012)
(Seriously, Lords of Salem is the best thing Rob Zombie has done...faint praise but still)

Owen Garth said...

You've never reviewed GRAVEYARD SHIFT (1990), the best of the Stephen King adaptations? For shame. I am planning on writing about it on my blog and I would enjoy being a participant of your film club.

Stacie Ponder said...

I've heard LORDS OF SALEM isn't that bad, mostly. Hmm. I'm willing to give it a shot!

William Quiterio said...

Invasion of the Bee Girls!

Because SEX...

Also... Why not?

Anitra Ford!

She is gorgeous especially with black, insect eyes...

CWL said...

C.H.U.D. or Piranha (light fun picks), or American Mary or Absentia (serious biz).

JA said...

I want to thank Will for alerting me to Entrance here in these comments - I hadn't heard anything about it before, so I just watched it totally dry, not knowing anything, and it creeped me the fuck out. Suuuuper slow burn but if you're really paying attention it's crazy tense.

Alejandro Omidsalar said...

I'd go with either American Mary or Argento's Deep Red, neither of which I found on your previously reviewed list. They're both loopy gems, in my humble opinion.

Stacie Ponder said...

I saw ENTRANCE a couple of years ago and I haaaaaaated it! BUT. I was watching it with someone who really hates everything and enjoys MST3King movies, so I bet that had A LOT to do with it.
