Vote for My Next Review! (please...)

Okay, I've got a review coming up soon for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo 2011 (Nebs! I finally saw it!) but one thing I need to do is plow through all the movies in my instant queue. Seriously, the same 46 or so movies have just been sitting there for months and months and MONTHS. I want them out. I finally watched Peeping Tom and Don't Torture a Duckling this past week as I mentioned here and I'm at a loss as to what to watch next. Maybe you guys can give me some help? Yes? No? Either one is okay, I won't be offended.

So anyway, I'm going to pick out... oh, let's say three movies in my queue that I'm not that sure about and we'll see which one gets the most recommendations and that'll be the one I watch and review. Okay?

1. Burnt Offerings (1976)
Netflix description: The vacationing Marian (Karen Black), David (Lee Montgomery, Ben (Oliver Reed), and Elizabeth (Bette Davis) rent a Victorian mansion in California for the summer and soon discover that all is not as it should be. For starters, dead plants come back to life and the pool appears to be a sort of trap. Behind all the strangeness are the Allardyce siblings, Arnold (Burgess Meredith) and Roz (Eileen Heckart).

2. Humanoids from the Deep (1980)
Netflix description: From schlockmeister Roger Corman comes this creepy chiller about some mutant fish monsters who bring mayhem to a sleepy oceanside community as they kidnap - and mate with - the town's nubile teenage girls.

3. The Falling aka Alien Predator (1987)
Netflix description: Three teenagers (Dennis Christopher, Martin Hewitt, and Lynn-Holly Johnson) vacationing in Spain drive through a town where the space station Skylab crashed several years earlier, bringing with it alien organisms that transform their human hosts into flesh-eating monsters. A NASA scientist (Luis Prendes) who's been working on a vaccine teams up with the teens to help contain the epidemic before it destroys the world.

VOTING WILL BE CLOSED AT MIDNIGHT ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11 because Thursday is my day off so hopefully somebody will have voted for something by then.


  1. Well, if you want something that's completely ridiculous, go with The Falling. I can attest to it's bizarre nature.

    I'd vote against Humanoids, solely because I'm doing it in a week or so. I don't want you stealing my thunder. :-)

  2. Go for "Burnt Offerings", strickly speaking its not that good but it does have slightly more class than the other two, although they both fall into the "so bad they`re good" category (as it were).

  3. I've never seen any of them, but of the three "Burnt Offerings" sounds like the most interesting.

  4. Michele, so glad you finally saw TGWTDT. I hope you liked it as much as I did. ;)

    Anyway, my votes goes to Humanoids from the Deep. I've always wanted to see it but never did, so your review may be crucial for my decision.

  5. I SOOO vote for Humanoids From The Deep. It's an absolutely wonderful early-80s monster-movie-classic you really need to see.

  6. Done and done! Voted for "Burnt Offerings" :D

  7. Humanoids from the Deep, hands down!

  8. Okay so far the count is...

    Burnt Offerings - 4
    Humanoids from the Deep - 3
    The Falling - 1
