Horror Talk / Night of the Lepus (1972)
« on: March 06, 2018, 06:22:11 AM »
While certainly not without it's flaws, Night of the Lepus manages to entertain (killer rabbits - who doesn't want some of that?) the audience without going over the top, unlike what many modern-day movies may tend to do.

If you've seen this, what are your thoughts on this ecological horror flick?

Horror Talk / Phantasm (1979)
« on: March 06, 2018, 05:46:21 AM »
This atmospheric, dreamy horror flick has long been considered a classic, almost universally, despite the often disjointed feel, in part by great performances by the main actors and creativity of the script.

What do you think about The Tall Man's debut?

Horror Talk / Pumpkinhead (1988)
« on: March 06, 2018, 05:29:46 AM »
An often overlooked classic, Pumpkinhead's ability to mix a dark atmosphere and story with the feel of a 70's flick really makes this movie stand out in an increasingly polluted year for horror.

What say you on this late 80's addition to the genre?

Horror Talk / Pre-70's Flicks you enjoy
« on: March 04, 2018, 11:37:48 AM »
Most horror fans I know can't get enough of 70's and 80's horror (which decade is overall better, is, of course, disputed), but aside from a few select films (Psycho, Night of the Living Dead, the Hammer flicks), I don't see all that much talk about that many horror flicks pre-1970.

I'll just use my list of horror films I've seen, and post below a bunch of movies I think might be worth checking out. If anyone's seen any of them, and disagree (or agree), feel free to comment.

Not every movie above is amazing, but I did enjoy each one to varying degrees.

I have a deep love of many of these older flicks, and if anyone wants any recommendations, maybe we can all help each other out.

Horror Talk / Rank the A Nightmare on Elm Street movies
« on: November 22, 2017, 01:43:20 PM »
A contentious topic, to be sure, but hell, it's fun.

Just rank the A Nightmare on Elm Street movies you've seen - see if any of our lists match up. I added both the 2010 remake and the 1993 Indian remake, called Mahakaal. If you've not seen it, I mildly recommend it. It's pretty wild.

From best to worst:

1) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
2) A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987)
3) A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985)
4) A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988)
5) New Nightmare (1994)
6) Freddy vs. Jason (2003)
7) Mahakaal (1993)
8) Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991)
9) A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child (1989)
10) A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

Some of these placements might need further consideration, but it's good for a start.

What say you?

Horror Talk / Best horror films in the last six years?
« on: May 10, 2017, 11:07:26 AM »
Random time-frame aside, I know that many of us aren't watching as much horror as we used to. I know that we may watch the same old horror movies again and again, and rarely take a chance with new stuff (not without reason).

I just wanted to list some horror films I enjoyed from 2013 to present day, if for no other reason to bring attention to them. I may briefly discuss each of these with a mini-review later on, but for now, I just wanted to list the movies.

1. Curse of Chucky (2013)
2. Hatchet III (2013)
3. Evidence (2013)
4. Wolf Creek 2 (2013)
5. Wer (2013)
6. The Den (2013)
7. Stage Fright (2014)
8. Mischief Night (2013)
9. Don't Go to the Reunion (2013)
10. As Above, So Below (2014)
11. The Boy (2016) - Saw this in theaters, and despite the dull middle-portion of the film, sort of liked it.
12. The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016)
13. Jockstrap Slaughterhouse (2016)
14. The Visit (2015)
15. The Unspoken (2015)
16. The Lesson (2015)
17. Hush (2016)
18. Almost Mercy (2015)
19. House of Purgatory (2016)
20. The Amityville Legacy (2016)
21. Miles Before Sleep (2016)

And here are some films that I was quite disappointed with (keep in mind these aren't necessarily bad, I just hoped I'd like them more than I did):

1. Are We the Waiting (2017)
2. Seclusion (2015)
3. Pet (2016)
4. Fender Bender (2016)
5. Cabin Fever (2016)
6. Some Kind of Hate (2015)
7. The Blackburn Asylum (2015) - Possibly one of the most generic movies I've seen in some time.
8. Don't Breathe (2016)
9. Fear, Inc. (2016)
10. Green Room (2015)
11. House of Whores (2015)
12. Friend Request (2016)
13. The Harvesting (2015)
14. The Hornet's Sting and the Hell It's Caused (2014)
15. Bound to Vengeance (2015)
16. Contracted (2013)
17. The Conjuring (2013)
18. Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013)

Lastly, here's a few films that were legit atrocious:

1. Exeter (2015)
2. The Hexecutioners (2015)
3. Isle of the Dead (2016)

Anyhow, if anyone's seen any of these, or has any comments/questions/anger, please let me know.  [*browwink*]

Random Bullshit / Who did you vote for in 2016?
« on: May 04, 2017, 06:46:11 AM »
No idea if political discussions are frowned upon here - it's been so long since FE's been really active that I both don't quite remember and more so, wasn't into politics back then.

I'm simply curious, should you be an American citizen, who you voted for in the Presidential race last year, and a quick explanation of why. Also, if you chose not to vote (which is a valid choice), that'd be interesting to know also.

No idea how many FE members care to discuss politics, but screw it, thought I'd make a thread about it.

As for me, I wrote in Jill Stein of the Green Party. Now, Indiana only had three names on the actual ballot (Trump, Clinton, Johnson), but 15 approved write-in candidates. Stein was one of those approved write-in candidates, and thus I gave her my vote.

Two other candidates I considered writing in included Mimi Soltysik (of the Socialist Party USA) and Monica Moorehead (of the Worker's World Party) - both decently solid choices, though my heart was with Moorehead. All that said, Stein seemed the practical choice, and thus I voted for her without too much hesitation.

As an aside, I didn't vote for a single Republican or Democrat down-ticket (Indiana had both a gubernatorial and senate election 2016), and even voted for a Libertarian for my district's House seat.

If you're at all interested, what's your election day/early voting story?

Horror Talk / It
« on: March 31, 2017, 11:57:28 AM »
Obviously, the new re-adaptation of It is coming out this September.

I'm sure most of you have seen the trailer.

Anyone has any opinions on this one way or another?

I know the board's more or less inactive, but this seemed a good topic nonetheless.

Television / Breaking Bad
« on: February 06, 2013, 06:28:28 AM »
So, I recently (about November 2012) got into this show, as a friend recommended it, so I watched up to the current series within the three months of November, December, and January.

Not sure how many of you guys watch it, but I know it's popular, and I admit I'm addicted to it. Can't wait for the end of Season Five (which will conclude the series).

Random Bullshit / Discussion of Future Portions of this Site
« on: February 04, 2013, 08:49:52 AM »
Obviously, members are slowly trickling on and rejoining, so I think that within a few weeks to a month we'll have everyone back who intends to come back.

I began this thread so we could see how certain sections of this site are coming along, and more so, maybe if people have suggestions of what they'd like to see, they could post them here for Chucky to see. I hope I don't seem like I'm above my station with this thread, but it's never too early to start discussing where we're headed.

First off, I think the thing that makes Fight Evil a unique site, and why I originally joined all those years ago, were the fights between horror icons. Were you intending to bring back the fights when possible, and if so, holding a draft to gauge what characters would be representing?

Also, I know movies reviews were discussed. I'll be honest and say that while I watch many horror films, I'm still not great at writing full reviews for movies. If anyone recalls, I had a own, sort of private section where I reviewed horror films in a much less grandeur fashion ("Jiggy's Corner of Horrors," or something to that effect). As soon as we get some classic threads back, such as "What's the last horror movie you watched?" and such, I'll see whether or not I need a thread of my own.

This isn't as important in my opinion, but another unique factor about this site was the Chat Room (which was an actual chat room - not just a thread were we talked about life). Now, I don't know how realistic it is that we can have another one, but if demand is high enough, maybe it should be discussed as an option for a future time.

Also, Movie of the Week was sort of suffering toward the end, but I think once we get about 50 members, and interest is high, that maybe we should continue that. I was sort of running it toward the end of it's run, and would have no qualms in doing so again if we decide to bring it back, but I wouldn't mind if someone else decided to take over.

The site itself is looking good (Member list if nice, and everything is simple and laid out), and I sense a great future.

It's great to see people coming back so quickly, and I hope that everyone makes it when possible. Well done, Chucky - you brought us back to life.

(Don't know if videos can be posted yet, and even if they can, I was never great with that, so I'll just post this link -

Horror Talk / Best Horror Films of the Last Three Years
« on: February 04, 2013, 04:18:33 AM »
Since FE has been down for a while, I thought it'd be nice to discuss some of the newer films that we've not had the chance to talk about.

In short, what do you think are some of the finest horror films to come out recently? I'll be composing my list and post it in time.
