Not surprisingly, the total was more around 60, yet I was surprised by some of the movies I realized I had not yet seen. Ah well, at least I will never be lacking for movies to rent on an odd rainy evening spent at home. If any of you have seen any of the movies I have not and want to let me know which ones to seek out and which ones to avoid, I would be pleased. Plus, it is almost October and thusly, Halloween will be upon us, I am getting into the spirit earlier, cause as we all know, I am never in the Halloween spirit. ~_^

The Haunting, Jacob's Ladder, the Wicker Man, Black Sunday, and the Re-Animator are all really good. Peeping Tom was shocking for it's time, but not so much now. The Last House on the Left is still seems very sadistic. Night of the Hunter has the greatest crack-pot, religious psycho I've ever seen in a movie. Blood Simple is trashy noir by the Cohen Brothers. The humor is smart-ass and a little mean like in their other movie, The Big Lebowski. Alice Sweet Alice is good psychological horror. Black Christmas is sort of creepy, but maybe you should save it for a more appropriate holiday. ;P
