If you're looking for a recommendation:
They Shoot Zombies, Don't They?
1SO's list of Buried Horror Treasure

Also, I'd like to bring back Sandy's Scale of Scariness.
Quote, Copy and Paste the indicator to the bottom of your review. Feel free to change the label to clarify levels of Tension, Gore and Disturbing Content

- Terrifying

- Really Scary

- Scary

- Slightly Scary

- Safe for Sandy

1SO, your watchlist on Letterboxd still is marked as private? And has new shit come to light or is the Godzilla thing still on?
I might remember it all differently tomorrow.

It's like the things we say can have an impact on the world...

Ideas of movies for me:

Halloween
People Under the Stairs ?
It follows
The Babadook
It
28 Days Later
Let the Right One In
Suspiria
Carrie
The fly
One Nosferatu
Bram Stoker's Dracula
Interview With a Vampire
Night of the Living Dead

I will try to watch at least four in two months. Maybe more, maybe I will rewatch something too.

Let The Right One In is on my Top 100 list so that could be a good 2-for-1 for you.

Internet out here is poor. I will try to change Letterboxd when I can. Still want to do a Kaiju Mini-Marathon, but don't think I have titles on the Watchlist yet.

Not able to see the gif yet, but if it has motion I try to avoid those when they're going to be posted repeatedly.

One of these days I will get back to participating in this. I'm just still trying to get settled back into a routine after my move so I can resume my other marathons. But for now I will simply follow along here.

Fixed Letterboxd so the lists are now viewable and the Kaiju Mini-Marathon is happening though I'm not sure how many titles I want to tackle. I definitely want to watch...
Godzilla (1954)
Destroy All Monsters (1968)
Gamera: Guardian of the Universe (1995)
Kong: Skull Island (2017)

Possible additions:
Gamera 2: Attack of the Legion (1996)
Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (2001)
Colossal (2016)


Also, if you haven't seen it, Godzilla: Final Wars (2004) is a real treat.

I'm so ready.  For my pre-October Shocktober, I am planning on the following:

Ju-On
[REC]
Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires
Kuroneko
Raw
It Comes At Night


Which is the version of We are What We Are to watch: 2010 or 2013?
