  1. You've seen all these? I'm particularly impressed by the earlier ones (silents).

  2. I've only seen the ones I have indicated in blog posts. Many of the links are just to wikipedia articles or imdb listings, waiting until I get to them. We do watch a lot of movies around here, though...

  3. You should look for Phantasm a late 70's early 80's film.

  4. What Bob said. Phantasm really creeped me out as a kid/early teenager

  5. Phantasm it is! I'll ask my older son if he's got a copy. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

  6. My son says he used to have a copy of this but loaned it out to someone who lost it. I did find it at Borders tonight and picked it up, so I can watch it soon.
