I confess I'd nevers seen 'Dawn of the Dead' until a few nights ago when it was on tv. That's not a horror film, it's a comedy - albeit unintended...

BWAHAHA! and the like to you too.

I still haven't seen [REC] even though I saw the remake. Never heard of Frontier, and never actually saw The Thing.

I just saw "Let Me In", the remake of "Let The Right One In", and it was good. I might even say that it was better than the original.

Adam - The remake of "Let the Right One In" looks really well done. Not sure if it needed an American remake so soon, but I'll give it a try. I liked [REC] more than Quarantine for one reason alone. The difference in the cause of the outbreak.

Frontier(s) was a slap in the face. Combination Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Boys from Brazil. Odd, scary and what the fuck was that thing crawling in the tunnel?!?!?
