This is why I love Netflix InstantWatch with such a fervent passion.

May I add a brilliant Udo Kier double bill of FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN (1973) and BLOOD FOR DRACULA (1974). Both are Andy Warhol films, and both are amazing in their awesome(schlocky)ness, and have some really nice gore. The young Udo is quite easy on the eyes for us ladies. Some of the best lines in all of cinema lie in those two films. XD

The original FRANKENSTEIN (1931) is also streaming now, too.

Thanks for the heads up on the stuff coming up. Good lord, I'll just have to stay in for 4 days!

P.S. What about posting a printable/PDF copy of this list so we can have it handy?

I noticed this insane update yesterday and my instant queue jumped from 100 to about 500. Hell, I don't even need the DVDs in the mail anymore. I'm glad I downgraded to 1 DVD at a time I'm saving money and still watching a ton of flicks on my queue anyway!
