MeFi Horror Club: Triangle

Long one of MeFi's favorite horror movies, Christopher Smith's 2009 film Triangle gets the MeFi Horror Club treatment. The extremely vague iMDb blurb for it says: "The story revolves around the passengers of a yachting trip in the Atlantic Ocean who, when struck by mysterious weather conditions, jump to another ship only to experience greater havoc on the open seas." That doesn't tell you much, but if you haven't actually seen it before, you'll have a better time going in as blind as you can. The film stars Melissa George and Liam Hemsworth. And is freaking amazing. [more inside]

MeFi Horror Club: October Bonus Picks!

In honor of Halloween, MeFi Horror Club is going to double up, with extra picks every Friday in October. By design, these picks will primarily be the kind of widely-seen movies that a hefty chunk of horror fans will have already seen. This will allow us to maybe lure in some people with big titles, cover some movies we'd normally skip for being too overexposed, and present the opportunity for people to comment on films they may know well enough they needn't rewatch them to join in. List after the jump... [more inside]
