@masterbrief: Yep. Its a great, campy horror anthology. Tonally very different to VHS but I highly recommend it if you enjoy the anthology format. The screenplay is by Stephen King and its directed by George Romero so the quality across the stories is fairly consistent and it doesn't bother spending too much time developing the framing story between shorts apart from the (great) introduction.

VHS is a pretty decent horror anthology. I agree the first and last tape are definitely the best in the original. VHS2 is vastly superior even though it feels like it follows more of a formula than the first one and loses some of that mystery, particularly with the 'framing' story which just feels more contrived than the original. In the first I was genuinely interested in what was going on in the house between each short even though its not a main part of the movies appeal. Still neither of these are as good as the original Creepshow imo.
I suppose it depends on the kind of horror movies you're after. But you've already got some great stuff on there. I'll just throw out some suggestions that most other people have covered.
Cabin in the Woods - obviously great to watch with a bunch of friends who haven't seen it.
Grave Encounters - the first one atleast.. and if you enjoy that see the second one too
V/H/S - I really liked the premise for this but some of the 'tales' if you want to call them that were hit-or-miss for me.
Blair Witch Project! (yeah I'm a sucker for found footage - sue me)
Tucker and Dale - pretty great horror comedy
Evil Dead 2 - I have a huge soft spot for the original Evil Dead movies. I enjoyed 2 more than the original but I have yet to see the remake which from what I hear is a serious gorefest. But if you want a good horror comedy with ridiculous 80s special effects and bucket loads of fake blood this is a must.
Creepshow 1/2 - someone mentioned this too somewhere. Another great compilation of campy horror tales - get a real 'mature' kind of Goosebumps vibe from these.
The Strangers - if you're into home invasions
@inkerman: You're joking about the NBN right? The whole point of the government building the NBN is to stop the current situation we have with Telstra's ownership of the copper network in the first place. Private ownership of the bulk of Australia's internet infrastructure does NOBODY any good apart from Telstra. It doesn't benefit marketplace competition and it certainly doesn't benefit access for people living in rural Australia.
It's borderline disturbing seeing the hubris of Nintendo in their current situation. Sony really showed how to take a new approach for the next gen and admit past mistakes. I really hope that we will see some serious management changes at Nintendo by this time next year.
Agreed. I don't want to see Nintendo fail and end up no longer making consoles.. but bloody hell do I want to see them get a good kick up the ass for some of the crap they seem to just dismiss specifically their online functionality and what I believe are becoming (for me personally) some rather stale franchises.
I used to get really excited for each new Zelda game but if the next one is like Skyward Sword I'm done. Theres only so far you can push that same dungeon-item-puzzle formula. I'm still on board with what you might call the 'non-major' Zelda releases (handheld games) but when you announce a new Zelda for your home console I expect something that is going to push the boundaries like they used to - particularly for me in regards to story and characterisation. The 'chronology' for that universe is an absolute mess and Link has about as much personality as a doorstop.
Oh hell yes this looks freaking awesome. Getting some vibes from the old RE4 beta with more of a focus on horror but with what looks like a healthy blend of action (that said really hoping for more ghost like enemies!). And those sound effects just wow. Really looking forward to this.
Yo guys I just want to play some video games! I'm going to contribute to this cause I'm a sucker for horror and tonally dark stories. Plus I'm humbled with the way these guys are bending over backwards to try and make money for this - if they were funding a scam there would be far more efficient ways to do it.
