TCM. I liked Lifeforce too, but not many people did.

Re: Tobe Hooper

I like the concept of Lifeforce more than the film itself, though it does have moments of awesome in it. I've always said it's a great candidate for a remake.

Absolutely. I saw this just a few months ago, for the first time. Couldn't believe how all kinds of cool it is. I always passed it of as a small, old sci-fi movie. But it got all awesomely epic half-way through.

Yeah, It's in the queue but haven't had the need to put it number 1. I'll get to it now, though.

Completely agree; the film is completely uneven with how the different aspects, the single vampire, mental possession, zombie, contagion, and military combat angles are juggled. If you were to catch 15 minutes of the movie at a random point, you wouldn't know what type of film you are watching.

Saw 2. Perfect blend of gore, humor, scariness, & insanity.

Yeah that's what me must mean. Cut him some slack though... because he's had no deer for at least a month.

Re: Tobe Hooper

Voted Salem's Lot (obviously a tough call w/ TCM). For those who haven't seen it, Eaten Alive is a decent movie too. Not his best, but a curiosity for sure.
