My favorite sci-fi tv series has to be the 60's Outer Limits.

They had the most creative "monsters".

Still waiting for re-runs on tv.

Got them all for my dad on dvd...lol...They are great.....it reminds me of the old x minus 1 radio show.

Hyena.... all they know how to do now is make stupid REALITY TV now. I find myself watching Frazier reruns for QUALITY tv. and just think... we sat around while cable companies now charge us to WATCH OUR OWN TV!!!! :D

My favorite horror series:

 

Evil Dead late 70s

Evil Dead ll (remake of 1). 1980s

Army of Darkness (Evil Dead lll). 90's

 

Bruce Campbell has lead role. Long story short, bunch of college kids goto a remote cabin in the woods and find an ancient book (book of the dead) that has the power to possess the living. Check em out.

Fiend Without a Face

 

The Devil Commands

 

 

 

 

Horror Films

 

 

Night of the Eagle

What none of the classic listed . like Boris Karloffs Frankenstien.

 

Speaking only for my own part, and having started the discussion for the sake of discovering new (to me) titles that I haven't yet viewed, I've proceeded on the premise that most people posting here will have viewed the "standards," like the classic Universal Pictures monster movies, many times already. Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney, etc, are such icons, that they come to mind reflexively, at the mention of the genre, in the same way that Black Sabbath comes to mind when one mentions heavy metal music. I've refrained from listing all my favorite Hammer films (I'm a huge Hammer fanatic), only because I assume most will have seen them a dozen or more times. I could be wrong about that, however...

 

Who likes Hammer horror films?

1972 Mach 1 (H-Code)

Hammer Films made the last true horror/ Sci Fi Films of the clasic period and were the best.

 

Try some of their lesser known films like 4 Sided Triangle or x the unknown

I love scifi movies! I'll watch just about anything...

 

I even enjoy the SyFy Channel "B" movies like Sharktapus and Raptor Island! LOL...they are so cheesy that they are highly entertaining!

 

I hate what's happened to SyFy. Back in the early days, it was actually pretty cool. I lost all respect for it when they killed "Farscape," and hung around only for "Stargate SG-1." Never could get into "Stargate Atlantis" or the new "Battlestar Galactica" series.

 

There's another Sci-Fi movie, that might cross over into the 'B' movie category: the original "Battlestar Galactica."

Nope not a b flick..Even know the original is not popular and seems cheesy a bit now days...It still stands as one of the most expencive tv series ever made to this date.....It was like tring to make the movie star wars each week..The effects so hard to make back in 1978....Even know it was number 1 and at very least number 3 on the charts by its final season...It was canceled due to cost and george lucas kept sueing them each week...saying they stole it all from star wars...lucas even sued them over using lasers...lol..I loved the original as a kid...So i watched alot of shows about the demise of it..lol..Its sad but history

 

I liked farscape too..It was like a new version of buck rogers too me...lol....but it was the sign of the times....Problem with new series back then...Is they played the new ones on friday and sat night...Well most people are out and runing around on friday and sat nights....Wasnt till the last 5 years they noticed how many good shows died cause they was airing them only on fridays and sats "farscape and shows like firefly paid for it" heck even family guy was cancled and futrurama due fox tring to boost its friday night watchers...But soon as other networks got ahold of the shows and played them on a weekday...they took off bigger than ever.....all new popular shows come out on monday threw weds now...cause they learned...Most people sit down to watch tv after a hard days work..lol

The Steven Spielberg truck horror movie.....Duel... a classic to me:)

 

:D:D:D:D "Thats all folks"! A little studder there. I can just imagine myself on those back roads between Jennerstown and Somerset, PA on how very dear freinds have bitten the dust as those "Coal Trucks" come barreling over the hills and curves, late at night and there is no where to go to get out of their way when they drift over into your lane(in those narrow two lane roads as route 30) My scary scene is in "Jeepers Creepers" II when that truck (looks like a locamotive) was pushing those kids off the road!

Since this is a horror/sci-fi thread, I figure I HAVE to bring it back from the dead!

 

Hammer Films "The Creeping Flesh"

 

Rollerball (the original)

 

Moon (fits in well with 2001/Space:1999 and has a tenuous connection to Bladerunner)

 

I liked In the Company of Wolves (beware the man whose eyebrows meet...)

 

Anything by Gene Roddenberry that stars John Saxon!

Some of the most traumatic viewing I have seen

Livid

Trouble everyday

In my skin

Frontiers this one is vicious

In their sleep

Switchblade romance/High tension.

All are French and all are sick in their own right. You can get subs from opensubs google it.

 

August Underground trilogy, but that's an obvious 1, like wise human centipede movies. Men behind the sun, A Serbian film, Salo

 

Kill List

The whole guineapig series

Mermaid in a man hole

Taxidermia

Cannibal holocaust

Cannibal Ferrox

Heaps more but I cant remember them just at the moment

He has all the vices I admire and none of the virtues I despise

Audition is a standout especially the scene with the wire saw

Nekromantic

120 days in sodom

Horror flick? is Jane Fonda in it? ;)

 

Not really a fan of horror flicks, but Silent Rage is kind of classic sci-fi horror B movie.

 

Has anyone mentioned the Alien series with Sigourney Weaver? The original Total Recall was also pretty good, and who can forget Starship Troopers.

Ron

The Rickster, a 1973 Mach 1, being restored as a tribute to my brother who passed away with COVID in July 2020.

Billy, a 1976 Ford Bronco, also needs a lot of work.

El Guapo, a 1986 F150, frame-off Resto-Mod.

Also, in the queue, a 1950 Ford F1 Panel truck and 1962 Falcon Ranchero
