Up All Night was so awesome, ahaha... I still watch some of those old telecasts. I also used to love the late night Joe Bob Briggs shows, the Movie Chanel one and the TNT one.
As for The Toxic Avenger... I remember it was the first R rated movie that I can remember seeing. I was a little boy and I loved the cartoon at the time, so I got my dad to rent it for me from the gas station/mom n pop video store in town, without any idea of what it was, just that it was a children's cartoon franchise. I remember watching the beginning of it (which I currently recollect as being in the gym with t and a all over the place). My mom walked through the living room as I was half watching this (I had no idea what was going on in the movie, I was so young) and my mom just exploded and ejected the tape, then proceeded to raise hell to my dad as to what kind of a tape he had just rented for his little boy.
When my mother was pregnant with me, her mother (my grandma for those keeping score at home) bought her a copy of Rosemary's Baby, thinking it was a sweet gesture. Gotta love either clueless or passive aggressive family members.
It will always be my favorite "scary" movie although I find it more creepy than scary.

I've mentioned this is the general movie discussion thread before, but if you haven't seen The Snowtown Murders, and you can stomach really gruesome stuff, give it a watch. You'll definitely have an opinion about it.
Also, just watched V/H/S. It started to pick in the final scenes... but... meh.

Snowtown Murders" is an excellent film. Horror, it's not. Maybe more of a psychological thriller/true crime mystery, but definitely worth a watch. "I Saw The Devil" is great if you like Japanese horror/serial killer stuff. "Troll Hunter" is also really good. Not sure what genre it would be in but it's a lot better than it sounds
