Another, really strange but good one is Pontypool. It's very non-traditional horror for the most part but I really liked it a lot.

How I forgot this I will never know. Watched it after Patrick's list on WR, and I was surprised how much I liked it. Gonna have to recommend this one too.

Well, if you haven't seen Dawn of the Dead (the original and the remake) I say do it. Both are great movies. The Hammer horror stuff is pretty awesome, especially the Dracula movies. Despite what others say, The Satanic Rites of Dracula is a whole lotta fun and probably my favorite. If you want something much more serious and dark, Martyrs and A Tale of Two Sisters are really good. Though Martyrs is beyond fucked up, so if you have any semblance of a weak stomach don't watch it.

Speaking of foreign movies, watch The Chaser (2008 Korean thriller). It's not specifically horror, but it's fantastic and everyone should watch it.

The Thing (1982) is fantastic and disgusting. The Evil Dead movies are great campy horror too.

Yeppers, The Thing is one of my favorite movies of all time. Evil Dead 2 is especially amazing, but Army of Darkness and the first one are pretty good as well. The effects (clay?) at the end of the first movie still creep me the fuck out.

edit: oh, and Pontypool. Motherfuckin' Pontypool.

It's was stupid cheap on GameFly, so I thought why not? Well, that Rush guy opened his mouth and the game is now going to collect virtual dust.

@jakob187: All right, I can dig. Especially after venturing into the dark, dark world of Dota pubs for the first time a few days ago. I barely know anything and it's really annoying when people rush stupid items, skip boots, or just have the worst skill build ever. I have a slight benefit since I actually like playing support, so the four hard carries (because why not) can go yell at each other because I can stay on top of rune-calls, courier, and wards without exploding. I try to help them though, and I generally don't care about my wins or losses so I guess that might be the difference.

I'm talking from the Dota side where the real "competition" is certainly not in public games, so I think it's a bit fucked that people get furious in them when they could just tell the bad players exactly how they are fucking up. It's not worth getting angry about, in my opinion, unless you're on a dedicated team with them. I just try and be as friendly as possible even with total dorks, but I could see why an especially bad support could make you want to scratch your eyes out. It's also terrible in Dota when you get a bunch of guys who jump into an English server with absolutely 0% English. Like, how are we supposed to be an at least competent team with no communication?

Oh well. Good luck on the grinding.

Stage name of the vocalist for a German power metal band. Goofy bunch of dudes, and the name was really funny when I was a few years younger.

Chris is 2-0 so far. He plays it straight like Ryan does when he hosts, but doesn't really drop the ball on too many goofs. It's obvious that there's some onscreen chemistry that needs built. Maxwell was pretty awesome as well, and Ryan MacDonald's excitement brought that whole thing up a few beats.

Fuck you, guy, I liked it. It's getting better and rather quickly for a new show. So long as this isn't the beginning of some tinfoil hat merger scenario then it's awesome. Also, whoever called this being the new Patrick hate is spot on.

Hard to see past the Johnny V/Adam Boyes one, 10-13-2009.

Add in the GOTY casts and we've got winners.
