The presence of vampire material before then QU is not necessarily related to a vampire craze. They were all common fodder for storytelling, and have been for quite some time. The popular culture changed with the release of Twilight though, and that's the metric I'm judging it by. If you're saying vampires were huge in popular culture, like how they have been for the past couple years, "then I'm afraid you're terribly mistaken".

Now that i think about it. I've never seen a horror movie that made me genuinely scared. Sure the jump scares gave me startles but the premise of these movies are so easy to understand. Shit the only good "horror" movie I've seen in the past 5 years was Cabin in the Woods and that was because of the satire.
Have you tried turn it off and on again?

I'm not big on horror either because it's rather repetitious.

What's with all these "I," titles?

I'd rather have a movie about I, Lucifer.

Also, been wanting to watch Cabin in the Woods for a while. Maybe I can find a copy somewhere...

I. Fucking. Want. This.
Also, Vince Gilligan (creator), Bryan Cranston (Walter White), Dean Norris (Hank Schrader, and Bob Odenkirk (Saul Goodman) are going to be at a Barnes and Noble in Los Angeles signing and (maybe) selling the box set.
I'll see if I can go...
As I saw the creature, I was as white as an egg. I was so scared I might crack from fear. As the humanoid began to lunge after me, I was walking on egg shells from how scared I was. It grabbed me, took me to its station, and cracked me open. The last thing I saw were my yellow insides cooked on a pan. Human nature is as evil as a rotten egg.

Millo, how are you watching these movies? Horror movies are usually much less effective if you're just watching them on the TV with friends who are ripping apart every scene. You need an appropriate atmosphere. Not that I don't disagree in that they're generally pretty ineffective, but of the genres it probably matters most that you see it in the appropriate setting and mindset.

Can anyone name the best horror movies they can think of? It's been a while since I've watched a good one. Maybe some fell between the cracks over the years, or I'm missing some classics.

I'd call it fanart because Cap's shield was broken but it has happened before.

Usually i watch them with only one other person and we both generally never speaking during the movie.

HOLY FUCK YES. Bully was the greatest shit ever when it was released. I've been hankering for a sequel since forever.

Only questions I have for it is whether it still follows Jimmy and if it's still set at Bullworth.
Why not?

Lasagna was in the house, eats the house. While he's already inside. Logic.

Ooooo this was creepy.
Even creepier because I imagined he was talking in a Bill Murray voice.
Now when I look at Tuor's avatar, it'll remind of THAT.

Has anybody here read that creepypasta "Psychosis"? I'll be discussing it in my creative writing class.

Garfield is Bill Murray's one regret
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."
