I haven't heard you two mention judging films for the Eerie Horror Film Festival these past two years. What gives?

Like Forest, INVADERS FROM MARS (the remake) freaked me out as a kid. I saw it before I saw the original, as I learned about the original from a book about old sci-fi movies and then grabbed the first VHS with "Invaders from Mars" on the cover on the shelf at the video store. It turned out to be the remake. Something similar happened to me with THE THING when I was in the fourth grade.

While taking about Cannon, you two jested that Menahem Golan must've said "We Need Spielberg!" fairly frequently. I now have the image of some writers explaining the plot to NINJA 3: THE DOMINATION to Golan and Globus:

"So an aerobics woman is possessed by the spirit of a dead ninja, which causes her to commit acts of murder and occasionally pour V8 juice all over her naked body during sex..."
"WE NEED SPIELBERG!!!!"
