That's far out, man.

I always wonder what the yardstick is (you know, to measure what films are important enough to warrant a protectection of "a crucial element of American creativity, culture and history").

A worthy achievement, none-the-less.
Abide.
Synonyms: observe, act in accordance with, accept, respect, endure, tolerate, bear, continue, remain, persist, stay
Archaic: Live

It's never these sort of movies you have to worry about.
Well the Big L maybe but it's had a resurgence.

It's the fringe movies that become a time capsule when resurrected later.
The Ed Wood movies for instance or the Evil Dead franchise.
Weird little straight to VHS things that just blow your mind when you see them years later.

Dark Star early John Carpenter and Dan OBannon.

And personally I like some of the weird 70's Blaxsploitation flicks.

Stuff like that eventually ends up impossible to find.

I don't think a lot off the earlier horror films get the respect they deserve a lot of the newer movies have ties or are remakes of the older ones which I think have lost the human touch the original had
