Slugs (1988) based on the Huston book. A largely unheard of cast, the majority of whom did nothing other than this film in the industry. Some good kills though.

I've read that one and the follow-up. I can't remember if it was in the first novel or second, but I reached a passage in the book where something happens to a guy sitting on the toilet. I read that section and passed it to the guy sitting beside me and told him to read it. The book was then passed from person to person until everyone in the room had read this particular passage. You could tell by the squirming look on everyone's face when they reached this one particular sentence.

That reminds me of when I was in high school and a friend gave me James Herbert's The Fog to read: there's one chapter where I went OMG, closed it and gave it back. Hint: something to do with a pair of garden shears  :buggedout: :buggedout:

Ah, the school scene. Random story, I'd taken this book to the hospital with me to read when Kristi went in to give birth to Ash. This ended up being the first story I ever read to him.
I'll show you ruin
I'll show you heartbreak
I'll show you lonely
A sorrow in darkness

My local Dollar Tree store has been something of a honey hole for cheap horror DVD's of late... two weekends ago I stopped in there and picked up: The Amityville Murders and Trick.

Last weekend I picked up Satanic Panic (aka Panic according to the cardboard slip cover over the DVD) and You Might Be The Killer.

Today, well, I went a little nuts and hauled in all of these:

Sanitarium (Malcolm McDowell, Robert "Freddy Krueger" Englund, and Lacey "Party of Five" Chabert? Sold!)

Spree (my son saw this and recommended it, back cover sez it's an "American Psycho for the digital age")

3 Lives

Flight From Hell: Dead on Arrival

The Shed (saw the trailer for this in front of "Trick" a few nights back, looks like a hoot)

Z (Shudder Original)

Plus these non-horrors:

The Island (Ewan McGregor/Scarlet Johanssen)

Epicenter - Earthquake disaster flick starring Traci Lords, packaged with 7 more (!) "bonus" movies! Woohoo!

... I think that oughta keep me busy for a little while... :D

Dragon Knight

A man with only one emotion tries to find a dragon to save the world from a handful of guys wearing the mask from "V for Vendetta."

They find a dragon at the end of the movie, so it only gets a few minutes of screen time. A mix of decent fantasy elements used poorly, with a soundtrack of stick music which occasionally drowns out the dialog.

(Note: that "only one emotion" quip is a joke about the acting, not a plot point.)



Dragon Heart 5-Movie collection

Why is Dragon Heart getting sequels 20+ years later? I kinda get the first sequal, since it came out just a few years after the original, but the others? Ah well, at least on film in this pack should be good.   :smile:

Seems somewhat interesting so far - VERY low budget Space 1999 type thing but my standards are pretty low.



Low budget British mystery/thriller type thing.  Forty-three of them!  Watched the first two...a bit of a chore.

Trini

Got some new DVD's from Dollar Tree.

Specifically, I got a copy of the 1995 comedy Canadian Bacon (a personal favorite of mine) and some mockbuster called Alien Predator that I haven't even heard of. So this should be good.

Sonic the Hedgehog, which I still need to see.
