Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

There's a lot of great films on that list.  Some I disagree with, but hey, its not my list.

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

Coolest thing I found>  Battle Royale is finally region 1!   It's a BIG must on my list!  Thanks for the heads up, Aku!

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

i have not ever seen FutureKill anyone seen that one?

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

Only the poster.  It was up there with LASERBLAST as the movie that everyone remembered the advertising, but no one had seen the movie!

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

Very good list!  now to forward it to the wife so she knows what I want!

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

Yea that Battle Royale disc is not region 1 its not even the right cover by Amazon.. For the real cover you have to click on the customer sent covers.. It is actually the uncut Korean release of the film which they did Region 0..

As for the list.. I don't know Future Kill looks really corny.. I watched a trailer for it because his list got me interested but upon viewing it looks really cheesy.. Not a bad list but I dont think I'm going to include any of those on my list..

My list is going to be filled with movies that you probably have not heard of before but should be aware of. I mean most horror fans have all those titles.. They were pretty common place movies.. So I'm gonna try and bring back the good uns.. Of course I will include some classic films in there as well though..

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

a good list for sure. i allready have the Friday the thirteenth box set. i watched all 8 movies on the last friday the thirteenth, good collection if ur a big fan of the series.
i wanna get the nightmare on elm street and black christmas really bad though. the rest i could live without for a little while longer

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

Not a bad list, I wouldn't mind having a few of those in my stocking, but I agree with goon, I think my list would have a few of the more obscure title in it although I'm the type of person that buys his most favorite music on vinyl because I like the sound of it. That's a record (big, black, round thing) for all you young'ens who have never seen one. It's the hard to find gifts that mean the most, if you can buy it at Best Buy usually it's not an obscure title.

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

What up peeps!
I'm glad everyone's takin an interest in the list.

In regards to Future Kill, it's seriously a must watch flick.
If your a fan of films like Dolemite, you'll love this.
Its title should be in the dictionary next to 'B' movie. If you haven't seen it I would suggest at least renting it, drinking some smooth Canadian Club, and laughing your ass off!

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

I have it on my Netflix so i am gonna watch it but I don't know if it's worth buying.

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

Yea I watched a trailer for it on Subverisve Cinemas official website.. I'd like to watch it but I wouldn't want to blind buy it.. Apparently it has a ton of folks from TCM in it, Ed Neal and Marilyn Burns..

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

Very kewl stuff.

I definatly want to get Feast, Nightmare on Elm Street, Black Christmas, The Devil's Backbone, and if cheap enough...the Friday the 13th box set.

I already got B.R...i think my DVD cover looks cooler smile

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

The Devils Backbone is a gem.. That was my favorite of his picks.. It is definetly a lesser known title that any horror fan would enjoy..

Which means it will play everywhere, right?  Or is there actually a region ) that I am unfamiliar with?

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

Region 0 means it will play with any DVD player as long as it is NTSC or PAL depending on your area.  A few of Blue Underground's DVDs are 0 and work perfectly fine in my DVD players.

Re: Aku' Xmas Horror Must Haves

yea Region 0 plays in any DVD player as long as its NTSC or PAL like Golden said.. Thats how I get a hold of a lot of foreign movies that I own.. They often release certain titles in Asian countries Region 0.. not really sure why.. Its great for us though.. case in point Battle Royale..
