Eli's What To Watch

Somehow I missed this last week over at The Onion AV Club, but director and love-o-mine Eli Roth programmed a 24-hour Horror Film Festival that basically kicks all kinds of ass. If I weren't A) an old man, and B) employed like a "responsible" "adult," I would so be spending all day tomorrow doing just this. You can read what he has to say on each of the films over here, but here's the list of films he says to watch:

12 Noon - The Thing (1982)
2pm - Zombie (1979)
4pm - The Vanishing (1988)
6pm - Pieces (1982)
8pm - The Wicker Man (1973)
10pm - Who Can Kill A Child? (1976)
Midnight - Eraserhead (1977)
2am - Suspiria (1977)
4am - Cannibal Holocaust (1980)
6am - Toby Dammit (1968)
6:30am - The Evil Dead (1981)
8am - Audition (1999)
10am - Torso (1973)

I've seen about half of these before, and the other half I've wanted to see for ages. I would so do this if I weren't, well, all the things I listed before. My actual plans for All Hallows involve a screening at MoMA of George Romero's Night of the Living Dead, which ain't too shabby a way to spend the evening though.

What movies do y'all plan on screening to get yourselves good and spooked?

I've been hanging on to Black Sheep and Fido, but I'm not sure if I want to go with something more seriously spooky. Maybe it's time to finally see Let's Scare Jessica to Death!
