Note: Feel free to consider this the All Horror Discussion Thread! What with all the cool little horror flicks that are always on the horizon, I thought it might be fun to have one central thread for the Gorehounds to call their own. We'll keep it updated regularly with the latest news, reviews, and actors who like booze. This doesn't mean you can't still start a thread dedicated solely to Seed of Chucky, but after seeing all the genre fans crop up in the threads for May, Cabin Fever, Session 9, High Tension, The Toolbox Murders, Frailty, etc., etc. - I figured a one-stop thread might prove entertaining. First let's start off with the resources. There are a handful of excellent horror movie sites out there. These are the ones I enjoy the most and rely upon for solid news and reviews on horror flicks both mainstream and obscure: Arrow in the Head Bloody-Disgusting Creature-Corner Fangoria Horror DVDs Monsters at Play Upcoming Horror Movies (If I've left any of your favorite horror sites out, lemme know and I'll add 'em in.)

Yes. Look, you guys know I'm a horror whore. I freely admit to praising Cabin Fever a whole lot, pushing my beloved May down everyone's throat, and basically behaving like I'm the ONLY person in the world who sees the beauty in movies like Frailty, Ravenous and Session 9 (which, obviously, is not the case). Your opinions might not mesh with mine. If you hated Cabin Fever but loved House of 1000 Corpses...then feel free to use my opinions as a Reverse Barometer; if I dig something, you'll probably hate it. Either way I'm being helpful! To start off, Lions Gate rules. Seriously. They snatch up all the great little horror nuggets that the other buyers sneer at. This year they have (at least) three on the docket that are really damn good: High Tension, Open Water and (my favorite of the three) Saw. Obviously you'll all see these ones once they're released. There's this teeny tiny little Brit horror/comedy called Freak Out that most astute horror fans will appreciate, Tobe Hooper's remake of The Toolbox Murders is a perfectly entertaining throwback slasher, Marc Evans' truly cool My Little Eye hits DVD later this month (as does a fairly creepy war/horror movie from Britsville called Deathwatch - with the "other" war/horror movie from Britsville (The Bunker) on its way as well (though I haven't seen that one yet), Dead & Breakfast is a great little treat, those who haven't seen it will dig The Hole if and when Dimension ever releases the damn thing, that Aussie Undead flick is crazy fun, The Machinist (though not full-on horror) is creepy and intense enough to be included, Dead End is a clever little curiosity (though others dig it a whole lot more than I do), Bubba Ho-tep is something that any Bruce Campbell fan can reliably purchase sight unseen... Whew. I think that's everything. Chime in and offer your own thoughts on these flicks. Please feel free to remind me of any titles (or websites) that I'm missing above. And check back often, as I aim to keep this thread updated with the latest horror news. (I'm sure I'll get plenty of help from folks like Justin, Alex, Julie, Matt, etc.) Yay horror movies.
