    I LOVE horror particularly 60s/70s/80s. Not a slasher fan (Friday the 13th etc); I like serious, thoughtful films, super dark films, or comical (or comically bad). Those two films, also:
    Rosemary's Baby
    The Exorcist
    The Wicker Man
    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original only!)
    BurntOfferings
    The Dunwich Horror
    Zombi2
    Alien (don't care for any sequels)
    Event Horizon
    In the Mouth of Madness (currently playing on repeat as background)
    Dead Alive

    Loads more but don't want to go on forever.

    Might be easier to say I don't like regular comedies like Friends or American Pie, don't watch romance, don't watch sh*t like Real Housewives/reality TV. Don't like anything that feels insincere and forced to make a buck.
    The goofy British comedies. The IT Crowd is newer and amazing.
    And like many others here I love Mindhunter. Might be over two years for new seasons, so sad :'(

    Also love "childish" fantasy, Neverending Story, original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Legend, Willow, Dark Crystal. Tom Baker Doctor Who - I don't care for any others.

    I don't know much horror, but don't like the Hostel or Saw films or Sinister or Eden Lake!

    I have seen some 'world cinema' films and like them, I prefer subtitles to dubbed versions

    Yeah, can't stand dubbed movies and TV shows myself. The language is important to the plot! I really don't mind having to read. :)

    I hardly ever watch TV any more and I'm really not a movie person.

    I used to love watching The Simpsons but I think the belief that a cartoon, of all things, predicted some kind of disaster is ridiculous. According to the Simpsons we're supposed to have had WW3 by now, from which the Americans were saved by the British, and we no longer have real trees and put up holograms of them in their memory.

    Oh yeah, and the androids whose heads explode if they start to cry.:laughing:

    I like The Andy Griffith Show, American Pickers, NHRA drag racing, Barnwood Builders. I also watch my two favorite preachers, Dr. Charles Stanley and Dr. David Jeremiah.

    I saw Invasion of the body snatchers when I was about 10 years old. Scared me so bad I had to leave the movie theater.

    I’ve been meaning to see this film. Why is it that you prefer the 1978 version to the 1956 one?

    TV: Southpark (As this is the most accurate way of displaying whats wrong with society, and politics in a exaggerated, and sometimes sarcastic way IMO)

    Movies: Papillon (original), Braveheart, The Gladiator (Usually im more into comedies; but no comedy makes it to an all time favorite for some strange reason)

    Series: All the standard stuff FTWD, Narcos, and plenty of miniseries, and docs.
