I know it was inspired by Lovecraft and is about as Lovecraft as you're going to get besides Alien, but I'd call Alien more Lovecraft tbh. And either way that's basically two movies that are doing what I'm looking for. I'm probably gonna end up rewatching it soon.

The Hitch-Hiker (1953)

One of my favorite noir films by one of my favorite actresses and directors, Ida Lupino. I think this was also the first one directed by a woman. The movie was based on a real-life psychopathic murderer named Billy Cook but the story was changed to appease the film censors of that time. Good acting, directing, and emotional tension running throughout the movie, combined with desolate scenery, make this one a worthy addition to any film noir list.


The Hitch-Hiker - Full Movie - GREAT QUALITY HD (1953)

You know what **** all of you I think I'm just gonna watch Alien. There's really no way to go wrong with that.
Told you.
Should I mention Event Horizon?
You've seen Dark Star of course? Carpenter's first ever movie? It's not a horror but it is ****ing hilarious, basically hippies in space but, kind of, taken seriously. Not really.
Oh, and it has talking planet-buster bombs.
And an alien who looks like a beachball.

I've only seen Event Horizon once as a kid and I think it was a censored version on TV so I'm actually planning on rewatching it tonight.

Definitely hit up Dark Star though. Preferably (presumably) while high. If you don't enjoy it I'd be as surprised as you dissing Kesha.

Don't ever use "diss" again.

Shame that you haven't seen Event Horizon uncensored. Get on that. I saw Life with Jake Gyllenhaal that might be right up your alley.

Cop Land

Used to be one of my favorite movies back in the 90's, but I hadn't seen it in ages until this evening. Turns out it's still very good.

Stallone turns in an unusually restrain performance as a sort of quiet outsider who just minds his own business and seems quite naive about what's going on around him.

Seen both actually. Event Horizon last night, and it was pretty dull. Bad/indifferent/both acting, cringey set designs, and Paul W.S. Anderson clearly has no idea how to make actual horror movies. It was so-bad-it's-good enough times that it didn't feel like a complete waste of my time, but for the most part it was just meh. I did almost bust a gut at the sound effects in that last fight scene. It shouldn't go "BOING!" when you hit someone with a metal pipe.

Life was pretty nice as a sci-fi movie, but just decent as horror.
