Since there won't be much discussion and it probably won't get bumped much I went ahead and stuck the thread until the end of the month to make it easier to find (once you find it has been stuck ).
Thanks nemein for your efforts in controling this runaway train. I hope we can all reach a sort of truce and get the discussion thread opened again.

Week Four part two

Hit the long post forum software bug, have to break up my week.

Friday October 26th -
114- Scary Movie 4 * - 6.5/10 - I had seen one or two of the earlier films in this series, and wasn't overly impressed. This one was better, although perhaps I only liked it because I had seen The Grudge very recently, and was familiar with most of the movies being spoofed.
115- The Exorcist * - 8.5/10 - I have purposely resisted watching this film all of my life. Cut to the chase reason; because I know that demon possession can be real. I was too scared to watch it. Well, I bought it years ago (I think it was actually free with some mail-in offer back in my early DVD days), knowing that I must confront my terror and watch it someday. Also, it is considered a classic of horror, my favorite genre. I waited until I could watch it in the morning, and have all day to recover. I'm glad I did, there is no way I could sleep right now. I was going to make it a marathon and watch the sequels and prequels later, but now I doubt I'll do that. Perhaps some comedy horror later tonight.
116- Exorcist II: The Heretic * -3/10 - And there it was, my horror comedy. Well, it was so bad of a sequel it was more criminal, not funny. I hear III is better, I'll watch that and then something funny before dreamtime.
117- Exorcist III * - 7/10 - Not nearly as scary as the first, but quite well done, and progresses the story nicely.

Saturday October 27th -
118- Arachnid * - 2.5/10 - Extremely mediocre, nothing new here.
119- Dead Men Walking * - 4/10 - DVR was filling up, almost deleted this when I realized this was an Asylum film, but, for the challenge, decided to watch it. It is actually pretty good considering. Deleted and will never watch again of course....

Wanted to watch more last night and today, but my parents picked this weekend to move. I tried to explain to them how I had to watch 12 movies per day to build my totals, but parents just don't understand.

Sunday October 28th -

Pretty much finished the move yesterday, so am going to try 24 hours of horror today. Only 6 hours in, and acutely realize that this plan should have involved me getting more than 12 hours of total sleep the past 3 nights. Still going to try, will post tomorrow when I'm done (or wake up after failing...).

120- Jenifer * - 5/10 - Biases: I love Steven Weber (mainly from his Wings role) and he wrote the teleplay and starred here. I also love Bruce Jones, who wrote the original comic book story. The concept is decent, the acting fine, but the ending is so darn predictable. Very disappointing, as I thought that this would be my favorite MOH perhaps. I hope it gets better.
121- The Black Cat (1941) * - 6/10 - A fun little Bela Lugosi flick. Almost seemed like an Abbot and Costello film at times. Confusingly, Lugosi also starred in a 1934 film of the exact same title.
122- Cigarette Burns * - 6/10 - Awesome premise.
N/A - Le Fin Absolue du Monde * - 10/10 - Just kidding. I don't think I'd watch it actually.
123- Man Made Monster
124- Imprint
125- Sick Girl
126- White Zombie
127- The Vampire Bat
128- Horror Island
129- Dracula (1931)

(27) The Others- Great ghost story 9/10

10/27- (28) Vampire Secrets- From the History channel. Not a movie but a documentary about vampire lore and legends throughout history, spanning Vlad Dracula, Countess Bathory to present day vampire cults. Very Interesting. 8.5/10

3. "Re-Animator"...a little better the 2nd time around.
4. "Hellraiser"...infinitely better the 2nd time around. maybe the 1st i just wasn't in the mood. but, i dug the atmosphere and gore this time much more.
5. "Deadly Friend" ...saw once when i was a kid. not a bad little horror movie. definitely doesn't look and feel like a Wes Craven movie though.
6. "Leprechaun"...something about the little people and Jen Aniston looks really smooth and silky.
7. "Leprechaun 2"...eh.
8. "Bram Stoker's Dracula"...saw it in theaters and didn't like it too much. it was better this time, but not as good as i had hoped. a little too stylized and random for me.
9. "1408"...not bad, not bad at all. a good little horror thriller and def. liked the ending on the DC rather than theatrical. the dc end was more in line with Stephen King, but i wonder which is truer to the book ending, if it indeed is the theatrical.
10. "Dr. Giggles"...a slight cut above your average 80's wannabe schlock fest.
11. "From Beyond"...wow! did i really like this movie. i liked it a lot more than "Re-Animator" dare i say. very entertaining, provacative and i dug the creepy crawlies effects a lot.

13. "Death Proof"...it was like watching two different movies with the 2 vinettes. night and day, figuratively and literally. the 1st vinette was classic Tarantino. the dialogue was inventive and awesome, like any great QT movie. the build up was tense and palpable. i loved the first one. i loved the look as well with the grain and all, it was perfect. the 2nd vinette took me right out until the last 20 min, but even the last 20 was not great. the look went to modern which i disliked and the characters were caricatures with stereotypical speak and over done imo. the dialogue was anything but inspired and i just didn't like this half at all. then Stuntman Mike
Spoiler:
is reduced to this snivelling wimp just bc he got shot in the arm and then he runs for his life! didn't jive with his persona. he became an unmitigated mess from 1 bullet wound and was actually groveling and apologizing to these females that he has seemingly mastered and killed for years?? i don't think so.
i don't know what that 2nd half was, but it was in direct contrast to the 1st and that sucked. i liked it good overall though and will happily revisit. i just wish it was more consistent throughout.

14. "Planet Terror"...it was good. expected a little more, but entertaining with some great effects and creative kill shots.
October 26-28
15. "Saw III" (DC)...i didn't like it in the theaters and this new iteration didn't change matters. i do like the end with the clip montage, that and the music was decent.

16. "Fido"...not bad. took awhile to get going, but i got everything they were doing and got into it by the end.

17. "Poltergeist"...will be the last for this year. great way to end it!

18. "Saw IV"...i liked it.

10/28- (29) Dracula - 1931- Bela Lugosi- Wonderful but dated, Dracula movie. 9/10.
I hope to get a few more in before the deadline.

10/29-(30) House of Dracula 1945- Terrible movie, the only good thing about this one is Lon Chaney as the werewolf and even he couldn't save this 3/10

Week Five

Link to Week One - Weekly tally 39. Got off to a much better than expected start.

Link to Week Two Weekly tally 24. Slowed way down, as I spent time reorganizing my bedroom. Next week is looking even worse, with family coming to town.

Link to Week Three Weekly tally 25. Only one film a day the first three days, but got back up to speed by the end of the week.

Link to Week Four part one Thru first four days of the week watched 25. Broke 100 on the 23rd, and still gearing up for my 24 film day.

Link to Week Four part two Weekly tally 56. Another 31 films on the weekend, marathoned thru 25 films on Sunday alone.

Monday October 29th -
145- Dog Soldiers * - 6/10 - If you can totally check your brain at the door, this is a pretty good action horror film, especially for a made for TV movie. Huge plot holes and some stupid moments, but decent dialogue and character growth.
146- 30 Days of Night * - 8/10 - A great adaptation of a comic book. If anyone hasn't seen this in the theaters yet, I highly recommend it. And there are free tickets for it inside certain horror DVDs at CC, some as low as $4.99.
147- Saw IV * - 6/10 - Maybe I should have watched part 3 before I saw this, but I figured I had a free ticket and I wanted to see it for the challenge. I wasn't a huge fan of the first two, but I did like how are four are tied together.
148- The Flesh Eaters * - 5.5/10 - I quite enjoyed this 1964 flick. It has some weak acting and bad dialogue, but some interesting ideas. Apparently, there is a DVD out or forthcoming with some deleted scenes and a commentary. I'll probably buy it someday.

Tuesday October 30th -
149- Trilogy of Terror - 7.5/10 - Like many, I really love the third segment. I watched this on TV when it originally aired I imagine, and it freaked out my sister and I quite a bit. This film is a big part of the reason why horror became my favorite genre I imagine. Haven't bought the DVD upgrade yet, anyone else?
150- The Thing - 10/10 - Saved one of my top ten films of all time for the number 150 spot. What a fantastic opening sequence! It really gets you ready for something different.
151- Phantasm - 7/10 - I was too young to see this in the theaters when it came out, at least according to my parents. I loved the trailers and so looked forward to seeing it on home video that I think I built it up it up so much in my mind that I was bound to be disappointed by it. I still find it quite fun, and will buy the sequels once they hit the bargain bin.
152- Pitch Black - 8.5/10 - The sequel was such a let down.
153- Hellboy Animated: Sword of Storms * - 6/10 - Meh.

Wednesday October 31st -
154- Halloween (extended TV version) - 8.5/10 - It's going to be difficult to slog thru all the sequels today, as I hear some of them are awful.
155- Halloween II - 6.5/10 - I love that it continues immediately after the original. I work in a hospital, so I was a bit bothered by the complete lack of personnel staffing what looked like a 100+ bed facility. But overall, pretty decent for a sequel and a few nice scares.
156- Halloween III: Season of the Witch * - 6.5/10 - If you go into this knowing that it has nothing to do with the Michael Myers Halloweens, it is not that bad of a horror film.
157- Halloween: A Cut Above the Rest * - 8/10 - Documentary.
158- Halloween IV: The Return of Michael Myers * - 6/10 - Not as bad as I feared.
159- Halloween V: The Revenge of Michael Myers * - 3/10 - Pretty weak.
N/A- It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown - 8/10 - A holiday tradition that originally aired just after I was born.
160- Halloween VI: The Curse of Michael Myers * - 3/10 - I hear the producer's cut is better, but I can't imagine it being enough to make it an annual watch for me.
161- Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later - 7.5/10 - The scene where Laurie and Michael reunite thru the window is a classic. After a couple of weak efforts the Halloween franchise is back on track!
162- Halloween: Resurrection * - 2/10 - They should have stopped with H20. This movie was awful, as was the Zombie remake.
N/A- Halloween: 25 Years of Terror * - ?/10 - Documentary. Started this last night, but fell asleep, so it won't count for this year.

10/31- (31) Sleepy Hollow- How can you have a halloween challenge and not view this one with the headless horseman. I love this. I have watched and re watched this many times. 9/10

This is my last entry for the challenge. As always, was a wonderful experience. I hate to see October leave. I actually doubled my score this time, I had 15 total each of the last two years. This is a great thing that we are all doing.
