OK, as a running gag (or at least that's what I'll say in court), I've been promoting a little shin-dig for everyone to enjoy when we all meet up in Hell, namely the Endless Bad Sci-Fi Marathon.
I promised those who voted for my promotion over on Pharyngula a place where they could put up their favorites for consideration, so here and now is that place. ATBC regulars are of course also encouraged to add their picks as well.
final judgement on inclusion will be made by putative MC Joel Hodgson.
any questions should be directed to the PR office, as Joel will not be taking direct requests, and I don't have time to address your pathetic whining.
as an example of the kind of thing I personally consider representative of the genre, I'll post one of the films that will definetly be shown during the marathon:
|Based on a short story by H.P. Lovecraft, the undisputed master of the macabre, Dagon tells the story of Paul Marsh, a young man who discovers that the truth will not set him free instead it condemns him to a waking nightmare of unrelenting horror. A boating accident off the coast of Spain sends Paul and his girlfriend Barbara to the decrepit fishing village of Imboca looking for help. As night falls, people start to disappear and things not quite human start to appear. Paul finds himself pursued by the entire town. Running for his life, he uncovers Imboca's dark secret: that they pray to Dagon, a monstrous god of the sea. And Dagon's unholy offspring are freakish half-human creatures on the loose in Imboca.|
plus, the leading lady has tentacles for legs, and the leading man ends up with her under the waves, serving Dagon in Bliss for all eternity.
what more could you ask for?
now this would be considered "upper end" as far as quality goes; any better and I seriously doubt your pick will be included.
see you there.
