netflix streaming

I swear, Netflix Streaming is turning me into a big nostalgic baby. When I think of classic horror television from my childhood, there's some obvious shows that come to mind, "Tales from the Crypt", "Monsters", "The X-Files", "Dark Shadows", all that jazz.

There's nothing I love more than a shitty horror sequel that takes place in Outer Space. While everyone out there claims that "Leprechaun in the Hood" was the best "Leprechaun" movie, all the cool kids know that "Leprechaun 4: In Space" was really the best one. Disagree with me?

I'm turning twenty-five at the end of the month. Despite the fact that I know I'm relatively still a young guy (especially compared to Joe, ba-zing!), I'm kinda freaking out about it.

Most of the country is frozen solid. I woke up Wednesday only to be greeted with at least an inch of ice over my balcony, a spun out moving van on the tree lawn and an inch of ice on the street below so thick that I could see if from my ninth floor apartment. And we got off lucky. It's nuts.

2010 was an odd year for the horror genre. Despite the fact that 2010 saw the most major theatrical horror releases of any recent year that I can remember, there wasn't that one "must-see" film that defined the year.

1996 was a big year in my life. First of all, I turned 10 years old. Secondly, "Mars Attacks!" came out in theaters. If you've seen "Mars Attacks!" I'm sure I don't need to tell you how unbelievably awesome this movie is. If you haven't seen it:

Let's face it, Predator 2 sucks. For every bit as awesome and timeless as the original "Predator" is, "Predator 2" is a shitty, lame, dated sequel steeped in '80's corn and cheese. Yet, it still manages to be awesome. How is that? Well, let me count the reasons:

Whenever I'm talking to someone who hates horror films, they inevitably ask me "what would you say is a good horror film?" Without fail, I know of one movie that anyone, regardless of how much they hate our little genre of film we hold so dear, will always agree is a great film, is Stanley Kubric

Let's roleplay a bit. You're a television executive working for Animal Planet. You're hearing pitches for the upcoming season. After hearing numerous pitches for shows involving puppies, puppy cops, puppy doctors and wannabe Steve Irwins, I burst into your office with the following pitch:

Donald Sutherland wants you to watch the 1978 remake of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" on Netflix Instant Streaming today!

Why do you ask? Well, let me explain it to you.
