I'm looking for stuff along the lines of The Mist. Well-done thrillers/horror films with a nice sci-fi angle. Any ideas?

(Don't bother with any of the other films in the series.)

The three mentioned make the Abyss look like a cartoon.
I wouldn't waste your time.

Too bad nobody thought to ask me. I'd have given you a few dozen movies to watch.

+a lot on Aliens and The Thing.

Some of the Body Snatcher movies are good - the 1978 one with Donald Sutherland, for example. Even the Nicole Kidman once from last year was surprisingly unbad.

connie, would't it be a better use of your time to do something that wasn't nerdy? aren't there some drunked girls you can try to take advantage of?

Not sure if it's exactly what your looking for but how about Dark City?

Brazil (although it's more of a sci-fi/thriller/satire)

Alien and Aliens are good recommendations, but Alien 3 is underrated. (Skip the fourth one.)
