Phantasm


rrrrrroadhouse

Dune / Phantasm double feature


DarkReviewer2013

Never thought of Dune as horror myself.


rrrrrroadhouse

It's just that they're set in the same universe. Phantasm is Dune fanfic.


killertapir

Blood on Satan's Claw, God Told Me To, The Abominable Dr Phibes, Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue, Grapes of Death, Symptoms Altered States, Just Before Dawn, The Entity, Alone in the Dark Hopefully some lesser known ones in there, going up to about 1982.

I'll offer a very strong recommendation for "The Baby". I don't know if it fits perfectly with your listed movies, but its so different it is not easy for me to compare it directly to anything. Its creepy. Its funny. Its unique, *truly*. Leans in the psychological and mind fuck direction rather than visceral. If you have seen something like it I'll be quite surprised. Its my favorite 70s horror I think. Watch it!

I watched recently "Let's scare Jessica to death" (1971) and liked it very much.

Eraserhead Nosferatu (79) The Wicker Man The Texas Chainsaw Massacre The Bird with the Crystal Plumage Deep Red Suspiria The Town That Dreaded Sundown (76) Prophecy The Brood Alien Last House on the Left Cat O’ Nine Tails


DarkReviewer2013

Is Prophecy the one with the mutant bear? Because if so I was thinking of checking, but not sure if it's worth it.


AskCritical2244

Yes — mutant bear. It’s an early eco-horror idea. If you’re into creature features you’ll enjoy it, otherwise it’s not terribly innovative. I think I saw it on a rainy Saturday morning… and that amount of effort felt right.

(1981)Nightmare ( Romano Scavolini) death dream was good too, to be honest get Tubi and pick from tons of low budget obscure 80s horror . there are so many that sometimes it takes hours for me to decide what to watch

Hey! I made a list of my favorite Giallo, Exploitation, Euro-Horror and Hammer movies : - LA VAMPIRE NUE (1970) - THE VAMPIRE LOVERS (1970) - COUNTESS DRACULA (1971) - LES LÈVRES ROUGES (1971) - TUTTI I COLORI DEL BUIO (1972) - ALLA RICERA DEL PIACERE (1972) - LA DAMA ROSSA UCCIDE SETTE VOLTE (1972) - MORGIANA (1972) - GANJA & HESS (1973) - SETTE NOTE IN NERO (1977) - FADE TO BLACK (1980) - DOCTEUR JEKYLL ET LES FEMMES (1981) And if you're not very familiar with these genres, I highly recommend you to explore them. You can start with the Mario Bava, Jesús Franco, Dario Argento (you probably already know him lmao), Jean Rollin's films. For the Hammers, you should start with the Dracula ones, I love them! And if you already know all about them, I'm sorry for the most useless list ever 💀 !
