Amen Chuck. It is amazing how much things have changed. Only 15-20 years ago watching obscure, schlocky films felt so novel and rare. As though it required a lot of effort to explore and discover buried treasure. Now you can google stuff and watch just about anything you want within minutes. I recently watched the Beyond while streaming it onboard a plane. I had to cover the screen during a few of the scenes so that no on nearby would see and think, what kind of sick fuck am I sitting next to? True story.

Also, nice Ghostbusters reference.

 @Jrok78 - not gonna lie, I totally started giggling at the thought of you sitting on a plane watching The Beyond, with people inching away from you as Schweik gets nailed to the wall. The new dynamic is both a blessing and a curse for sure. I recall actually enticing people to watch The Beyond in college through the liberal application of vodka.

Blessing and a curse indeed. Lost a lot of sleep going down the wormhole. As for The Beyond, the spider scene and the plumber rising from the tub scene are so epic. I think a good gag idea would be to film people on planes or trains calmly watching Fulci scenes on a laptop just to see what the people sitting near them do...
