Dear fellow rats, :P
I like underrated horror movies...
My favourites are:

God Told Me To
American Gothic *
Prince of Darkness (arguably not that obscure)
Dark Heritage

What are your favourite, obscure horror movies?

* The omonimous painting is my favourite painting - that and The White Duck

Interesting!

As for me I haven't really seem any horror movies, 'cos my go-to for entertainment is comedy. But I did see 'Hard Rock Zombies', a low-budget horror-comedy on VHS, years 'n years ago... about an undead heavy metal band. The premise sounds cool, but I honestly forget if it was good or not... it was like 1985. Comments on IMDB suggest that it is bad, almost unwatchable :lol:

American Gothic and The White Duck are genuinely thought provoking images... nice!

Jacob's Ladder is brilliant! Very sad, though.

lol Meet the Feebles isn't really horror, but it is a classic. :) Wanna cite one of ol Pete Jackson's classics that's horror toss out Brain Damage. :) now THAT is some messed up stuff. hehehe

I personally love a lot of the early stuff done by Guillermo Del Toro. His style of ghost stories and horror is just awesome.

Also, because of the season, a GREAT flick to check nowadays is Trik r Treat. :)

Great little anthology piece that plays in a nifty circle. :) lots of nifty twists. I so want a lil sackboy figurine from this but .. nope.. too pricey.

You meant Brain Dead, right?
There is a cute rodent in that movie, too... :twisted:

actually I was thinking of Bad Taste but I was also thinking of Brain Damage, both pretty wild horror flicks from around the same time (1987/88) :) Though Bad Taste was Peter Jackson's, not the other.

I think GoaT needs those Sumatran rat monkeys. :) maybe there is someone experimenting in a secret dungeon or lab ? If you uncover the evil lair and try to stop them you get a companion rat monkey to cuddle in the process! WOO then you can play songs for it and it'll dance for you and hopefully not attack you in your sleep.. hehehe

@EvilKing... I LOVE that idea, in a primitive medieval-style laboratory... rat proto-scientists recently manage to create these weird and lethal hybrid rat monkeys... even bigger than the GoaT rats: stronger, faster, resistant to magic, with better senses (like smell and eyesight).

Imagine exploring the half-dark high-security lab, deep in the lower levels of the basement, waiting for one or two of these weird, ferocious beasts -rarely seen, just hinted at- to pounce from the shadows in a lethal blur of claws and teeth. Now that I think of it, kind of like Alien... which could even be referenced in a bunch of great ways.

@David: That would make for an excellent expansion pack...
However, I think that the rat monkey should really be a "dragon rat", just to preserve the fantasy thing.

Today I was thinking about a movie I saw, say, 15 years ago...
It was about a serial killer that killed his victims in their dreams, if I remember correctly.
No, it wasn't any of the Nightmare serie - this similarity is unfortunate, because googling for it produces endless results related to Freddy!
Basically, I seem to remember that the killer ends in jail, and there he's repeatedly beaten by two violent cops - an Indian and a white with dreadlocks.
There's a woman, a psychologist, who interview the killer.
The final scene takes place in her house: she wakes up hearing a noise, but there's nothing in the house.
She returns to bed... and her neck starts bleeding!
Any ideas?

Sorry Alberto, but the story doesn't ring a bell - though it does sound a bit like Nightmare. But I'm utterly clueless about horror movies.
