Thanks, I'll definitely look out for those movies!
If I had to really think of movies with sharply divided opinions, that were panned by the critics but had people jumping or horrified in the cinemas
or movie parties at the time (haven't seen them lately though), it would be:
The Serpent and the Rainbow
Thanks also for the reminder of Nightbreed
What a classic movie.
Strangely, like In the Mouth of Madness
(thanks for the reminder somewhere above) it's one of those movies I saw, and it was different and
memorable, yet it was almost forgotten, and the titles never mentioned again, and later one wonders whether one actually saw that, or whether it was

Good to know they existed after all.
I love post-colonial film, and especially when this combines with horror.
Not necessarily "cannibal" type 1970's exploitation movies (which are very formulaic), but movies with real political issues that suddenly include a
I'd love to see three (actually quite recent) films again, but their titles escape me.
I wonder if anyone can help?
The one is about really horrific Vikings invading North America, while the other is about mole-like creatures that eat people in a kind of 19th
century Western colonial encounter between cowboys and Native Americans.
Then I saw a short movie (or part of a horror series with a different story in each episode) about the Wendigo.
It was all on a ranch, and the guy who turns into the cannibalistic Wendigo was one of the scariest faces I've seen.
I'd love to see them again, so if it rings a bell please let me know.
