I loved The Lost Boys!



And The Witches of Eastwick...



In fact I simply adore Jack Nicholson.

I've seen 11 of these and own 14 of 'em on DVD. Fatal Attraction is one of my girlfriend's favourites. I too find it pretty suspenseful but like a lot less than a lot of the films on this list. Nightmare 3 is my fave Nightmare film, Prom Night II is the film in that series I like best,  Evil Dead 2 is lots of fun as is Monster Squad. Angel Heart I consider a great unsettling film noir style horror and I also very much like Prince of Darkness. Somehow I have yet to see The Lost Boys.

Yeah that may be so but that film still gave me nightmares in my later teens.

    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.
