    I saw a trailer for that while waiting for top gun to start, I thought is that a village of the damned ripoff.

    Is it any good then?

    Not a big Stephen King guy but Storm of the Century was pretty creepy.

    Yep. Pretty good so far. Definitely got the creepy vibes down. I've still got 2 or 3 episodes to go though. The wife said to me this reminds me of that Day of the Triffids things that scared me to death on TV when I was a kid. I had to tell that the original novels were written by the same bloke.

    You and everyone else of a similar age I think. Stuff like that rarely ages well. I rewatched Blake's 7 over lockdown, well, a couple of episodes anyway. Couldn't be bothered after that. Same with UFO.

    Full disclosure: I might have posted on this thread already because I'm a big SciFi/Horror fan.

    I like movies in which it takes them 1/3 of the film to figure out WTF is going on. With that in mind, here is my list:

    Them
    The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms
    The Thing (from another world)
    Forbidden Planet
    War of the Worlds
    Invasion of the Body Snatchers
    The Crawling Eye
    Journey to the Center of the Earth
    The Time Machine
    Rodan
    Fantastic Voyage
    The Andromeda Strain
    Jaws

    I could probably come up with a lot more but I'll stop here around 1975.

    I saw an indie a couple of years ago called 'The Clovehitch Killer' with Dylan McDermott, Charlie Plummer, and Samantha Mathis. In a way it's more of a thriller, but I put it in the horror category because stuff that really does happen scares the hell out of me.

    It was on again recently and I liked it better the second time around. I never thought much of Dylan McDermott's acting chops, but he does a great turn here which really surprised me. I hated him so much in this movie, which pretty much means he was very effective.

    It's very loosely based on BTK. Small town Church going Eagle Scout thinks his well-respected squeaky clean image father is a serial killer. And he is. Now I'm not really giving anything away with that because you're in on it for the whole ride. I'm a big independent film fan, and it's definitely worth the watch.
