    Seen a lot of clips for that film - it looks class. On another note, it's odd to see Chris Finch from The Office in such a serious role, he's a good actor too.

    Another one I enjoyed as a film but thought for a horror it was poor.

    That was me and I totally agree. I'd actually take it over Halloween even, and Halloween arguably took a lot from Black Christmas.

    The Hammer stuff is usually fun. Plus the films which weren't Hammer but were similar - often with Vincent Price, Christopher Lee or Peter Cushing.

    Totally forgot about The Witch - another standout from recent times.

    Shows how far the genre has fallen when a film like that is referred to as a “standout” IMO

    The thing with horror is that it's highly suceptible to cliches. So much so that meta horrors are almost a genre themselves. It always takes some kind of fresh gimmick to make a popular one these days. Then, when it arrives, it is milked for everything it's worth, becoming cliche.

    I think I said it was unsettling. I think we've all become 'over time' a little bit desensitized to the genre.
    As a rule I make it a habit not to converse with goats,unless its on my plate accompanied by roasties :laugh:

    Yeah, Black Christmas is a great movie. I prefer Halloween myself, but Black Christmas certainly falls under the radar a times and it is a shame because it is a creepy movie.

    Another under-rated horror movie is The Exorcist III.

    Which version 1974,2006 or 2019? I've not seen any and wondered which is the best one.

    Unsurprisingly nonsensical, a silly cgi fest. 6.109/10

    The Warriors [1979]

    For the umpteenth time, dated of course but still fun. 7.925/10

    The original is the one to watch. Not a fan of the 2006 one and the 2019 one has yet to be released

    Love Zombie films. Favourites are Dawn Of The Dead ( 1978 and 2004 ), World War Z and the 28 Days + Weeks Later.

    Zombieland is good too but is more of a comedy. I'm happy they're making a sequel.

    There's a film called Train to Busan too which is Korean which is meant to be a great zombie film - I haven't seen it but my brother likes it and he's usually dismissive of horror films.

    Train to Busan is great. Definitely worth a watch.

    Gets panned by many for being shit ( entitled to their opinion of course ) but like Blair Witch Project. Is proper creepy with the noises at night. Yikes.

    A few films have copied the found footage since.

    I think it's like marmite, some people love it others hate it - not much in between. Definitely a game changer though with its camera shots.
