I'd like to add to my number 7 answer if possible the film "The Unnameable 2."

It occured to me as I was going to bed last night how dumb I was not to put it down considering I've seen part of the movie and it's the reason I knew the first film even existed, lol. *facepalm*

The Thesp said...

Blackwing Rose, have you read "The Lurker in the Lobby: A Guide to the Cinema of H.P. Lovecraft" good read if you fancy a one stop guide to this boulevard of horror cinema.

Blackwing Rose said...

I haven't actually read that, but it sounds interesting. I've gotten more into Lovecraft over the years because I'm a big fan of the roleplaying game and the old card game Mythos. Mythos in particular is fun because the cards all come from his stories. :-)

Thank you ever so much, Bex :) I don't think you realise how happy winning this makes me. It's the little things that keep me going ;)

BTW, on #12, didn't The Dead Zone come out before Stand By Me? I know Castle Rock was the town in the book, did they change it in the movie and I'm remembering wrong?

Once again, thank you for taking the time to do this. It's always appreciated.
