    I love personal threads like that. I've been working on one lately that is similar to my Top 18 MERICAN Action movies and top 20 American Horror movies.

    Would anyone here be interested in a thread where I explore off-the-beaten-path interpretations of classic monsters?
    Go for it.

    First one.
    So you found God, huh? That's awesome. See, Mom kept calling out for him but he wasn't around. I guess Jesus was down at the mill forgiving all the drunks. Who knew?

    I coulda sworn you had seen it, or at least heard of it. Your post surprised me because it's a well known slasher in genre circles (and you're posting in the horror thread).

    It's not as mainstream as Freddy, Jason, or Michael but sorta on the level of "Terror Train," "My Bloody Valentine," "Slumber Party Massacre," "April Fool's Day," "Prom Night," "Happy Birthday to Me," etc etc.

    ETA: But yeah, it's the definitive "holy shit" movie.

    I've been watching a shit ton of 80s horror movies lately, (getting ready for a little Match Cut Halloween game ... more on that later) somehow this one eluded me, but yes. Absolutely, 100%, "oh shit" moment, fucking bonkers of an ending (both in story and execution).

    Yeah, it's an absolute classic, mainly because of that twist ending.

    The sequels are significantly lesser, but still fun camp.

    There are so many creepy, unnerving characters in that first movie. Not a single staff member at that camp should have been anywhere near children.

    I never got around to watching the sequels but I love that the first one is called Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers.

    The Insidious movies do this interesting thing where whenever things might get genuinely unnerving, a ghost pops in front of the screen and the mix blasts your ears with the sound of a bowling ball slamming into the open back of a grand piano.

    It's just the pits.

    Finally watched the original Piranha, and it was exactly what I like to see in a good B-movie horror. Sketchy but sturdy central characters, great character actors in supporting roles, a touch of mean-spiritedness, lots of laughs, blunt social commentary. Schlock done right. Dante clearly had a lot of fun dicking around on the flatbed, getting those drawn-out cross-cut suspense moments just right (and just long enough that we laugh at how long it sometimes takes).

    I just watched the original for the first time last week too!

    3 years after Jaws opens with a couple going for a seemingly innocent swim at night, Piranha opens with a couple going for an innocent swim in an abandoned Army pool at night. Little do they know, the pool is harboring Piranhas; man made killer Piranhas. It feels very familiar until the very next scene our main character, Maggie, is playing Jaws the video game, making this movie and Joe Dante completely self aware.

    Now, how do you take a killer shark concept and translate it to smaller fish that are self contained? Make the pool they were living in able to be drained into the river and beyond of course.

    Most of the movie is spent trying to convince people the mutated piranhas are swimming down river to a children's camp. But the movie becomes a little off pudding when the kids are attacked. I much prefer the college kids beach attack. Dick Miller makes his Joe Dante appearance as mayor of the town.

    I agree that the movie veers into needless crassness with the attack on the children, but the movie's also careful to show only two actual deaths in that scene, with near-everyone able to stand. I'm not sure if that makes the scene better (because kids weren't killed) or worse (because the film exploited that anxiety for cheap titillation), but I'd agree it's the least successful part of the film. The film kicks back into gear, like you say, around the time of the park attack, and the whole movie's worth it for this priceless exchange:

    The only real question mark here is the Innkeepers which I thought was a nice slow burn. I love me some Ti West.

    If Alien v Predator is on this list I would say you made out pretty well considering you haven't seen Wish Upon, the Bye Bye Man and any Paranormal Activity films.

    Then of course there's the C-list D-Video stuff that would make anyone's list.

    I think I've seen the first two PA films; they were alright. Haven't seen the last two, and I basically don't watch any horror that has been critically panned because the chance of any of them being a hidden treasure is basically nil. So I will never see Slender Man or The Nun or Jigsaw etc. If a couple of the people I follow on Letterboxd praise something, I will generally give it a go, so I'm planning on watching
    Unfriended: The Dark Web and The Babysitter for that reason, even though they aren't generally liked so much.
