I'm a HUGE horror fan. So much so that [shamelessplug] I cohost a weekly horror podcast that mostly covers horror movies, but occasionally delves into conventions and other genre-related stuff (we talk horror-themed pinball games sometimes, too). If that sounds like something you may be interested in, and you're not offended by semi-frequent f-bombs, please check us out! We're called The Swearwolves, and we're on Apple/iTunes, Android, Stitcher, Podbean, etc. Pretty much everywhere podcasts are available. You can also stream our episodes directly from our website: www.theswearwolves.com. New episodes every Monday at 12am EST. [/shamelessplug]
My all-time favorite horror movie is probably John Carpenter's The Thing. I met a bunch of the cast members a couple of years ago, and had them sign Petri dishes, like in the blood test scene:
One movie that hasn't been mentioned yet that I would say is highly underrated is Night of the Creeps!
I met pretty much the whole cast (and the director) at a convention a couple of months ago, and they signed that poster for me. I even hung out and had some beers with the guys who played JC and Brad. Oh, and I splurged for a "photo op" (which I almost never do) with Tom Atkins, Jason Lively, and Jill Whitlow in costume. It was a blast!
