If any of you folk enjoy the old B movies - horror, scifi, film noir, comedies, etc - the internet archive has a ton of them now they're all falling out of copyright. There's some fairly well known ones in there but personally I find the really random, obscure and ridiculous movies far more interesting for some reason, and quite inspiring for project ideas.

That's brilliant Overwind, thanks for the heads up.

I'll third Quatermass & The Pit and throw in both The Abominable Dr Phibes and Dr Phibes Rises Again whilst I'm here. The latter is worth it for the clockwork snake alone.There's no manifesto. There's no formal plan.

Some classy B & W horror films for y'all (* = most recommended)
The Innocents *
Les Diaboliques *
Eyes Without A Face
I Walked With A Zombie *
Curse of the Demon *
(those last three were directed by Jacques Tourneur, who is most famous for one of the greatest of all film noirs - Out Of The Past)

Hellraiser 1 (and then get the others and burn them without watching them)
Nightmare on elm street 1 - it's still awesome, though it's a very different style to the ones you quoted.
The Fly (jeff goldblum edition)
The Thing (80s edition)
I watched the Exorcist when it finally got un-banned and cinema re-released in the UK, and I have to agree it hasn't aged well. It's hard to imagine people fleeing the cinema as i found it incredibly dull.
Exorcist 3 on the other hand freaked me out. Possessed old people is too scary an idea!
