    When The Lights Went Out

    Just watched the film from 2012, no idea how I'd missed that one, but usually shy away from contemporary stock horror, much to my own detriment sometimes. But I loved this, from the wonderfully accurate setting in 1974 Yorkshire to the amazing cast. Has anyone else seen this, and what are your...

    West Country Tales & Other Folk Horror Gems

    I tried to locate an existing thread on which to share this yet couldn't find one that felt fitting. Please merge into another if that feels appropriate. I love searching for old folk horror or uncanny fictions on youtube, and have amassed a nice little playlist over the past few years. I...

    Fortean Book Suggestions, Please

    Hello. With Christmas fast approaching I wonder if anyone has any suggestions for good Fortean books. I have most of John Keel's works, Passport to Magonia, a few Bigfoot titles and some Nick Redfern (whose style I'm not a fan of) and some Jonathan Downes. Last year I received Hunt for the...

    Science Fiction: Films & TV

    We don't seem to have a specific SF films thread so here is one for SF films unlikely to earn a thread of their own. Starting with: Beta Test: Yes, its Mind Games Forever. Perhaps mixing the traditions of Inception and eXistenZ, Beta Test nevertheless makes its own mark on the SF gamer trope...

    Fantasy Films

    A Thread for Fantasy Films and about time too! The Huntsman: Winter's War. Friendly but tetchy Dwarfs, ghastly Goblins and miniature Gollum lookalikes who are nice and helpful. Beautiful production design with great costumes and good acting from Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain & Charlize Theron...

    Fantasy Literature

    10,000 B.C. See Mammoth Hunters Fight Atlantean Slavers!

    I went to see 10,000 B.C. (2008), last night, whilst waiting for one of my kids, who was attending a Kelly Clarkson Concert. :roll: An accurate portrayal of prehistory, it is not. If you like battles between Old Stone Age hunters and giant, hairy mammoths, not to mention the giant moa...

    Forteana & Weirdness On YouTube

    I got the following e-mail and watched the video. Actually - it achieves a nice spooky effect with cheap and simple means :D But how did the author find me? Do you have any more Fortean Youtube links? Right track ? :shock:

    Brothers Of The Head

    Brothers of the Head I've just got back from seeing this as the middle feature in a great treble bill (dubbed 'Midnight Obsession') at the Jeonju Film festival. It's really quite interesting and somewhat dark. Fortean associations abound. A few cameos, not least Ken Russell and Jonathan...

    Useful Applications

    Seems the old one got the chop but no matter we can start again. ------------ Obviously get yourself fixed up with firewalls and virus checkers - you can get free ones so there is no excuse. Also install a couple of spyware checkers. When it comes to browsers give FireFox a whirl - its...

    Science Fiction

    This topic developed a life of its own on another thread, so has been split off as a new thread. (Pedantic Eburacum) I tend to expect multicellular life to develop around stars in classes F, G, and K, but class M red dwarfs have very small comfort zones, so are less likely to develop life...

    Worst Movie EVER?

    That IS One BAD Film! Okay people it has been suggested on another thread that there are BAD films out there. So what films have you seen that have left you feeling soiled, degraded and with a bad taste in your mouth. And just to get the ball rolling I can't think of one as I blank them from my...

    Digging Up Threads Of Fortean Excellence!

    Ok, got a bit of time on me hands tonight, and thought I'd do a bit of an index telling people where they can find threads about Fortean classics, in light of many well-weathered topics being brought up again to be followed up with "see this thread" posts by the regulars. All threads listed...
