It's Coming from Inside the House!, MoPOP's horror film watchalong, is expanding our list of 100 Horror Films To See Before You Die. We're going to be working with our horror community to dig back into the list, see what we missed, and how we can start the work of updating the list every year to include the best that the horror genre has wrought from the depths of darkness.
Each watchalong we'll have a new guest pick a film to watch that they feel deserves a spot on the list as it expands, and they'll join the watchalong to make the case for its inclusion.

In July, Manager of Public Engagement Robert Rutherford is joined by guest Kelly Sue DeConnick, writer of some of the most exciting titles in modern comics, including the Carol Danvers rebranding as Captain Marvel, the Eisner-nominated Pretty Deadly, and Bitch Planet. Kelly Sue chose this month’s selection, Tremors, a loving nod to the creature features that dominated cinema projectors in the 1950s and a fantastic touchstone in Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon games.
Here are a handful of program elements that you can expect to see this Friday night:
- Pre-film introduction with Robert Rutherford, MoPOP's Manager of Public Engagement, and special guest, Kelly Sue DeConnick.
- Cheap-as-heck quarantine cosplay – Here’s some graboid inspiration
- Cocktails, mocktails, and beer pairing recommendations.
- Chat with the host and guest and other fans during the film.
- Post-film discussion on the film's enduring influence on the genre and why it deserves a spot on our list 100+ Horror Films to See Before You Die.
If you happen to own a copy of the film, get it queued up at 7pm PT Friday, June 19th! Otherwise, here's where you can find Tremors online:
