Is there REALLY nothing left?

For Kagan Mcleod
So last night I get together with my gang for our usual movie night. We've been doing movie nights since college, we'd get together and watch some weird horror or kung fu flick and have a few laughs. Recent movie nights we've been running into a disturbing problem, its beginning to look like we've seen everything worth watching in those genres. We usually track down weird sometimes obscure movies to sate our crazy movie appetites (last night we watched Without Warning, last movie nite was Unmasked part 25) but we're noticing that the movies are less and less entertaining. It seems the days of discovering gems like the works of H.G. Lewis and Lucio Fulci are gone. Instead of movies filled with crazy plots and insane gore, we're wading through long stretches of talking with very little payoff in the end. There was so little of the alien hunter in Without Warning it could have been called Without Monster. Is it time we moved on to some new genres? Is there anything Post 1990 worth getting into in the realm of monster movies and action?
It was always cool discovering these movies as a gang but I think the new rule of movie night has to be that someone has already seen the movie and can vouch for the awesomeness of it.  If any of you reading this have some suggestions for movies to track down let me know I'd appreciate it.

Oh the art attached to this post were my halves of art trades we did that night. Enjoy.
