    The Ultimate Horror Movie Marathon

    As some of you already know I recently broke my leg. Because of the nature of my job I cannot go back to work until I am able to work without any physical restrictions. So, that being said, I will have a surplus of free time on my hands. In addition to horror novels, I have a great deal of passion for horror movies as well. I am planning a few days of horror movie marathons and I wanted to hear your ideas for the Ultimate Horror Movie Marathon. The marathon can only be around ten hours long because I have to get this done while my better half is at work. Other than that I am open to any type of horror from any time period. Themes for the marathons aren't necessary but might be fun. Thanks guys!!

    Well, I like a good Japanese ghost story and the Criterion Collection has some doozies! Here's a marathon I've used before:

    Ugetsu
    Onibaba
    Kwaidan
    Jigoku
    House

    The last two are artsy and just plain insane films, but fun. Probably not what you're looking for, but also not your usual fare of kill-the-copulating-teens slasher pics.

    I'd probably go with a John Carpenter frenzy:

    Halloween
    The Fog
    Prince of Darkness
    The Thing
    and then round it off for kicks with Vampires (James Woods + crossbow!)

    Or! Some good, old fashioned science fiction -

    Quatermass And The Pit
    This Island Earth
    Forbidden Planet (Monsters from the Id!)
    Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 AD
    War Of The Worlds
