I LOVED Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2! “Gawdammit, Leatherface! You dented my plate!! You’re gonna buy me a new plate cover!” Epic cheese of a movie!

I’ve always been a big fan of Thirteen Ghosts, myself. I really liked The Blair Witch Project when it first came out-the whole “found film” footage was a great scare when it first started, but it’s gotten really formulaic. I watched “Unfriended” last weekend and actually fell asleep about 2/3 of the way through it.

The Shining, although the book is much better but Jack Nicholson does creepy very well :smile:

Agreed! The formula and the camerawork of most recentish found footage horror leaves much to be desired.

There’s where we will disagree. I believe House of 1000 Corpses will be/is his Campy Classic Horror Masterpiece

True. House of 1000 corpses is amazing.
There was something about the pace and tone in Lords of Salem that creeped me out though.
