Sunshine? Of course, the horror stuff completely derails what the movie was trying to do.

Turner Classic movies is going to be showing 48 hours of horror on the 30 and 31st. Some good stuff and all uncut.Who needs dvds when you have TCM.:techman: Heres a list. They are all classics. TCM has a good mix this year. Many they showed last year and many they didnt. Many that are rarely shown on tv. Your daughter may find some boring but Im sure theres plenty you will like. Blood Feast and the Original Two Thosand Maniacs are sure to be crowd pleasers. Ive never seen them but hear they are gory. Set your DVR if you have one.

Carpenter's "The Thing" - scariest SF movie ever

Pingfah October 25 2008 05:58 PM

Re: Halloween scifi
 
^ And just one of the best sci-fi movies ever made.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Preferably the original, although the 70's remake is good, too.

No problem.The ones on Halloween night are especially fun to watch. Robert Osbourne hosts the night films and I usually am watching TCM when Im passing out candy.

Does "Dead Space" count? It's a horror sci-fi game.

Turd Ferguson October 26 2008 06:54 AM

Re: Halloween scifi
 
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Jeff Goldblum)
The Invasion (Daniel Craig, Nicole Kidman)
John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness
Pumpkinhead

Re: Halloween scifi
 
And how could I forget . . .

"Village of the Damned" (the original, not the remake)

"Five Million Years to Earth" (aka "Quatermass and the Pit")

Tobe Hooper's Lifeforce was the only film that actually managed to scare me at the theater (and at fourteen I should have known better).

Scary though, it is not.
