Guess the movie game

Pat:
Given how "Show unread posts since last visit" works, everyone probably saw the answer.

NGL, saw oggsmash answer this one. That thread’s pretty popular these days, so Pat might be right. Had to look up the anthology as well as the orb bit to understand the film and the connections to the poem, but I feel like the fact that I could do that shows it fit pretty well. The narrator’s Loc-Nar, huh? Feel like I had heard that name referenced at one point but had no context prior to this. (I feel like I’m not necessarily the best audience for properly guessing on this game, unfortunately, since I’m not great at pop culture and am broadly an uncivilized brute. Still, enjoy the poems and watching other people try their hand, as well as spinning the wheels in my brain to no effect.  ;)  )

Battlemaster:
Over on the movie movie site people get into movies that are very little known but didn't get heavy metal. Ill try to avoid the esoteric ones.

Ok, here's one I got. Since this isn't a movie page I'll give hints.

A 100° winter
with several folks slain
blame it on microwaves
and hope that it rains.

It's a British scifi horror movie from the 60's  that had a prominent British scifi horror actor.

Pat:
How about haiku?

suicide is a
game I play she's bright, alive
I love her she dies

It's a geek film, but not the typical geek genres of sf, fantasy, or horror. Dark comedy, plus. Predates the wood-grained boxes. Don't expect anyone to get it.

Before I resorted to properly reading the hint I was looking into 100 Degrees Below Zero and trying to see if rain or microwaves somehow come into a plot involving volcanic winter or whatever.  So I was pretty damn far off. I knew for sure at that point I wasn't getting it without doing some digital research, so to speak. I don't know how if at all to do spoilers on this site, so anybody wanting to try to guess it the proper way, be forewarned.



Is it Night of the Big Heat? I really ought to look into the cinema classics a bit more, especially horror, though I've never really been able to get into that genre for some reason. You seem to know that area of artistic expression admittedly a fair bit better, but I appreciate the references and poems because it gives me stuff to look into.
