Any thoughts on when to show this week's movie? I couldn't help but notice we had fewer people this last week, but that could be for many reasons.

Open to suggestions on titles and times! Happy October, friends.

I had a dream last night that I watched an old black & white scary movie and I was really excited to tell my friend to watch it but now i am awake and the movie isn't real. lets try to watch one like it anyway, a few things I remember from the dream-movie are nothing so I guess let's watch Casper or Yellow Dog Far From Home

The time from last Saturday was good for me! I just couldn't join in due to a prior commitment. But I'll be back this coming Saturday, assuming nothing goes wrong!
By the way, I watched The Boys From Brazil on my own time with my brother, and I have to say we really loved/hated it. Excellent choice!

It was canadian thanksgiving, and my phone went flat

Time was ok though. I think I'd like to see like a zombie movie, something less 'thinky' to spice it up!

are there any pro-zombie movies? My zombie apocalypse fantasy has always been to just join the zombies ASAP and we can work with them to build a better constitution and civilization with a much healthier environment since nobody needs all the disgusting living-human luxuries that taint the world.

Excellent call. Billy Connelly being silly even for him.

Okay so we'll try the same time this week, midnight BST, and I will look for a less thinky zombie movie pref in B&W. Should be interesting...

Tonight! At midnight BST (about 6.5 hours from RIGHT NOW!), join us at http://psp-tv.com/r/BYOBween for this week's scary movie: 1932's White Zombie starring Bela Lugosi!!!!



Warning: yes the title to this film is a comment on race, and yes there are comments about race in this movie, from the 30's, so be prepared. Considering the entire idea of Zombies is stolen and twisted from an IRL religion it's pretty hard to find totally inoffensive zombie material, but this one isn't so bad comparatively (I was considering 1941's "King of the Zombies", an early horror/comedy, but oh man some of the jokes in it are suuuuper not cool...).

If somebody has a better idea (and a youtube link) today we can look at watching it instead, but this one is a classic, and only momentarily icky in places IIRC. See you tonight, friends! IF YOU DARE! *lightning, thunder, gust of wind, dark and stormy etc*

the girl with all the gifts is at least nuanced on the subject, I liked it

e: I may be in transit when the movie starts but I hope I can catch some of it!

The more I think about it, I like how White Zombie fits our theme: uncomfortably relevant-to-2020 classic horror movies.

We started with a plague in The Last Man on Earth, and a message of perspective about who the "good guys" and "bad guys" really are.

Then it was international neonazis in The Boys From Brazil, where we saw the real terror of fascism: when it's embodied in the youth.

And for our third night: cultural appropriation! Bela Lugosi plays a Voodoo priest in what is generally considered the first feature-length zombie movie. Based loosely on The Magic Island, a book that helped start the highly distasteful faux-Haitian Voodoo craze (It makes the faux-Polynesian Tiki craze seem almost respectful in comparison.)

Like I said, I passed over much worse offenders to get to this one- unlike almost all zombie movies that follow, this one at least takes place in part in Haiti. We'll have to use our, gulp, historical perspective and good judgement in watching it, oooh scary!

Edit- corrected spelling.

Fun times once again! Not every scary movie has the guts to conga-line its baddies off a cliff so efficiently, but there you have it.

It begs the question- if you had access to the backlot, sets and props of a classic movie studio, what story would you tell with them? I'd do a movie about a real estate agent who specializes in castles, and the movie is him trying to sell one crazy millionaire castle after castle and keep him from seeing that they're haunted. Just needs one more sale to retire, but ALL these castles are haunted darn it!!!!

Yeah i really appreciate this.

I've had issues with anxiety attacks and stuff in the past, and because of that I've never been into the more contemporary kinds of horror movies or video games because they use jumpscares and "saw" style super intense gore stuff too much. That "scared" feeling, of being trapped and overwhelmed in a scene, is really uncomfortable to me. This is the first time that i've been able to enjoy movies around halloween with a few friends, and it's awesome

I could run the movies a second time. Today was especially bad because it was just an hour long.

I'm glad y'all are liking this because I'm going all out for Halloween Saturday. I got a costume, and a big long playlist of shorts and music I'm gonna play, I'll be in chat all day getting drunk with anyone who wants to join me, it's gonna be a blast.

excellent suggestion! The key factor is if a movie is on Youtube and not restricted in any regions, but a movie with a lapsed copyright makes both much more likely!


Sig by Heather Papps

the nice thing about old horror movies is that they are often more palatable for a wide audience. movies like slither and from beyond are great, but the gore factor can be off putting for some users.

that having been said... is ‘the serpent and the rainbow’ on YouTube? zakes mokae’s mean smile is the best practical horror effect I have ever seen.

There is very often a barrier for modern viewers that makes black & white movies hard for them to focus on, so I'm always a little bit careful watching them in groups. Don't get me wrong I love B&W movies and photography, I would have a whole subforum where posting color media is bannable. But I have weird tastes in general so I try to keep perspective on how niche the act of watching classic movies has become.

Good question, I've been thinking of checking out Twitch lately for movie-showing purposes, but I'm critically unhip and have yet to ever actually watch a Twitch before so I have a lot to learn. They sound awful, haha.

Regarding the type of movies for this purpose, I like the old (usually B/W but not always) crappy ones better than "good" ones. If the point of the exercise is to make comments and enjoy the fun of reading others' comments, you don't WANT a movie that needs concentration or deserves attention.

I've long been a fan of MST3K and its heirs and successors, and the best movies for the purpose are old and bad and confusing and silly.

Word. This is not so much about riffing I figure, since we've been watching quality flicks. But there's still joking to be had, of course.

I would LOVE to set up a formal riffing thing on the forums for bad movies, there are a couple groups doing it presently and it remains to be seen which ones coalesce. We'll never run out of public domain cheese video, though.
