    Inspired by the Favorite Classic Movie thread. Howard related because he probably never saw any of these because they aren't girly or gay.

    Here's 5 of my favorites (but my list could go one and on...) :

    THE FLESH EATERS (1964) -- I saw this as a kid late at night. It gave me the heebee jeebees. Kind of like Gilligan's Island on crack. A small group of castaways get stranded on an island where a mad Nazi scientist has created microscopic sea creature that strip their victims of flesh. It was filmed on Long Island (where I grew up) and I got a kick out of recognizing the locations.

    LET IT RIDE (1989) -- Whenever I bring this movie up in conversation, nobody's ever heard of it. It's really a nothing film, but for whatever reason it won me over. It used to play endlessly on HBO back in the day and I watched it every time. Richard Dreyfuss plays a poor schnook who magically has one day at the race track where he can't loose. Worth watching if for nothing else, to see Jennifer Tilly wearing a body clinging red dress that must have been spray painted on.

    HAVE ROCKET, WILL TRAVEL (1959) -- The Three Stooges didn't make a lot of feature films and most were filmed way past their prime, but this one is my favorite. It's a helluva lot more entertaining than Abbott & Costello Go To Mars. I know that's not saying much, but it's good enough for me. Plus the Stooges sing!

    ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 (1976) -- Back when John Carpenter was young, hungry and a badass he made some incredible films for practically no money. Once he hit it big and his budgets increased he slowly lost his mojo. I've seen the remake and can't remember one damn thing about it, but the original has so many great scenes etched into my brain.

    ROCK N ROLL HIGH SCHOOL (1979) -- Fuckin' love the '70s movies. I have no love for the decade, but the movies made back then (especially the Drive-In grind house ones) are spectacular. Even the awful ones. This one is just nuts, with P.J. Soles at her most sexy, The Ramones music and a great supporting cast of character actors like Clint Howard, Dick Miller and Mary Woronov. What's not to love?

    I just watched The Party with Peter Sellers.

    I don't know if it's unknown but it's old so some people probably haven't seen it or dismissed it. it's good stuff though.

    Hard Eight (1996)

    The Phillip Seymour Hoffman scene was great.

    Oof. 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' (1998) was vastly more true to the source material.
