Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So a couple of weeks ago I watched The Shining for the first time, and just about fell in love with the flick. I loved it so much i've wanted to see a lot more movies similar to it! I like psychological thrillers more than the straight-up gore-fests that seem to oversaturate the genre. Movies like Saw or Hostel can kindly fuck right off; those are just gross, not scary.
I just have two problems though:
1) There's nowhere to rent these things! Ever since places like Blockbuster went out of business, the only way to get a DVD is through Redbox (which only carries recent stuff) or Netflix. I could get a Netflix subscription, but we don't have a way to hook it up to our TV (no game systems/etc) and i'd rather watch the movie on my TV screen than my laptop.
2) Some of these movies are hard to find! Quite a few stores i've looked over didn't have such classics like Psycho or Rosemary's Baby; either that or they're bundled/prepacked with unwanted merchandise or sequels that jacks up the price substantially. No thanks, i'd rather not drop twenty just to watch something once!
I could go the route of Quickster, but it takes a few days for that to come in the mail, and i'd rather go out and grab something today.
Aside from those problems, what are some recommendations anyone could make? Cheap hollywood "pop-out" scares tend to annoy me more than terrify, as well as the buckets-of-blood slasher flicks.
