    Heh, those are my two favorites, I'm partial to Weaveworld because it was the first Barker novel I ever read. Imajica is also very exceptional, and Barker himself says that it's his favorite of all the books he's written.

    The problem with adapting Barker's stuff to the screen is that much of his writing is so fantastic, so outside the realm of contemporary cinematic conventions, that it takes a special type of director/production team to really flesh out his ideas without making them seem cheesy or overwrought.

    Tucker and Dale vs Evil is great, and it has Katrina Bowden which is never a bad thing.

    I also like Lake Placid, Scream, and Scream 2.

    Night of the Creeps is good to because it is also like Tremors. In the sense that it's a new chapter and homage to old 50's horror style films. And a classic
