Let’s start with the roundtable reviews:

Dead of Night (1945), the first classic horror anthology, released decades before there were enough of them to constitute a proper subgenre…

Dead of Night (1976), Dan Curtis’s somewhat feebler follow-up to the notorious Trilogy of Terror

and…

Nightmares (1983), one of the rare failed TV pilots to get elevated all the way to theatrical release.

 

As for the rest, we’ve got:

Christiane F. (1981), in which the teens of West Berlin shoot a whole lot of smack…

Critters (1986), in which the Hopkinsville Goblins are reinterpreted as the galaxy’s deadliest Muppets…

Destroy All Monsters (1968), which far from destroying them, gave the monsters a new lease on life…

The Funhouse (1981), in which we can naturally count on Tobe Hooper to deliver the grodiest horror movie fun fair of all time…

Green Room (2015), in which “gifted” isn’t quite the right word the youth which Patrick Stewart is mentoring this time…

Microwave Massacre (1983), which flogs you with the dumbest jokes you can imagine until eventually you start to think they might, just maybe, be funny after all…

Sole Survivor (1982), in which just dying in the damn plane crash is arguably the better deal…

and…

Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song (1971), in which Melvin Van Peebles might’ve known that only Huey Long was really going to get it.
