I've seen 10 of these titles, the best of which IMO is Return of the Living Dead but Fright Night, PLifeforce (somewhat reminds one of Quatermass and the Pit) and Gremlins are all faves. How did heck did Nightmare on Elm Street 2 top this list? (although I can't say too much as I myself own that movie on DVD). Is The Doctor and the Devils any good? Heard talk about that one in the past.

The Company of Wolves is just...Bizarre.  It defies conventional labeling.

It's a dark, grim gothic drama but its been ages since I've seen it. I thought it was alright back then, but I definitely need to rewatch.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
