The Fog (original of COURSE!)
"Ahoy, mateys. This is KAB, Antonio Bay." Classic! I watch it every time I feel nostalgic about California.

According to Gnosticism, Christ came to world to give us a way out; so, why is Gnosticism so secretive and elitist when it comes to salvation??

1)Jaws

2)The Shining

3)Alien

4)Creep Show

5)The Changeling

6)Halloween

7)Friday The 13th

I pretty sure Jaws was the 70's; just a heads up. :blush:

Two movies jump out (no pun intended):

*  The Thing - the spider thing has been mentioned, but the whole film has some great sections (anyone else remember the CPR/defibrillator dude when the stomach opened up?).  Not to mention the great conversation between the queen alien and Kurt Russell right at the end :devil:

*  Aliens (that's part 2 of the franchise if anyone is keeping count).  Best sequel EVER (with the possible exception of Terminator 2, Empire Strikes Back, and The Dark Knight).

Me too, I also didn't like the shrunken head dude when I was young. But for some reason Beetlejuice himself didn't bother me, I used to say it 3 times to see if he'd show up. :P

At least you're consistent with the topic, my list was all over the timeline, but I was aware of that. The Changeling is still spooky, but I haven't watched it lately because I know the story too well. The Entity is only available on PAL. The DVD copy I bought from Amazon is excellent.  :)

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).
