If anyone's looking for a European film to watch for today's theme, Shudder recently added a French mini-series called Beyond the Walls (2016). There's 3 episodes, each around 45 mins. I haven't seen it yet, but it gets a lot of good reviews.

I played it safe for today's theme. I'm not familiar with many European horror films, and didn't want to take a risk on something I might not like, so I went with something I had seen before and know I enjoyed. I watched Trollhunter, on Netflix. In retrospect, I probably could have counted one of my Hammer films though, couldn't I?

I was just looking at the British horror list, and something seems off. First of all, I saw Harryhausen films like Jason And The Argonauts, and the Sinbad movies. Also, I saw American movies like the Alien movies and other series I thought were US movies.

I think Alien was filmed in England. That's probably why it's listed.

I was hoping that social media would pull more people into it, but I think many of us old-timers here don't use social media much, and the "millennials" that do aren't into horror binging perhaps.

I know I've not posted as much mainly because I've watched exclusively from my unopened pile. I should comment about each film I've watched but just haven't. I've also not seen many of the films others are commenting on so don't have anything to add to the discussion.
The subset threads appear to be getting slightly less traffic than normal, but not by much. Plus I think they typically get bumps near the end and in early November as people finish other Challenge and Halloween activities and make time to comment.

That's probably very true. I wonder if we had a dip in participation every four years?

I much prefer bed with the wife so...

I think that every year, but keep refusing to grow up. September 30th I tell all my family and friends that I'll talk to them in November, blow off all other aspects of life, and spend 20 hours a day watching horror. It's not good for me I know, will really try to make this my last 200 year.

I might make 75 this year, which, considering I've been averaging around 30-50 over the last several years, will be pretty good. Right now I'm sitting at 61, so if I can keep up my pace of at least two a day, I should have it clinched. Tonight, I'll break out Chawz (2009) (my blu if I can find it, otherwise, it's on Shudder) and then...whatever piques my fancy.

Congrats to the winners!

For this year's horror challenge I was able to watch two movies from my recent Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection set, Psycho and The Birds. I've seen the infamous shower scene and mother reveal along with scenes of the birds attacking but not the entire films. Both films have not perfect but not bad women as victims of circumstance. I can imagine reactions at the time after seeing these films when taking a shower or seeing a flock of birds.

Despite my slow pace this year, I'm going to crack 50 and if I can marathon next weekend, I could conceivably hit 75.

i finally got around to my Arrow Blu Ray of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Miss Osbourne. It has Udo Kier in it and the english track dub drove me nuts. I switched to the french track with english subtitles

Hitting #100 with the first film I remember scaring the hell out of me as a kid when my father let me watch it with him: Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. Also fits my nearly all 80s theme well. IMO, the best of the Friday the 13th flicks.

It's the Full Moon one. It's not that bad as a nostalgia piece and there's an intro by Charles Band that makes me want to open my copy of Auditions https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auditions_(film).

In the intro, he was talking about two other releases he did https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinderella_(1977_film) and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairy_Tales_(film). Afterwards, he'd have friends asking to see some of the audition tapes that were awful/amusing. One thing led to another and then they decided to make a movie based around the auditions, so they put a fake casting call in Variety for Fairy Tales 2, which wasn't really going to be made. The auditioners signed a release, got a buck, and now we have Auditions.

Just read the announcement from Tim Lucas that Video Watchdog will no longer be published. So, so, sad about this one. I didn't consider VW a "horror mag" like Rue Morgue, but a finely crafted, specialty periodical. And I hate to see it go.

Tim Lucas did specify "print" editions will no longer be published, but then he makes it clear they have know idea about VW for the near future. Fingers crossed they stay around in some form or another.

Yes, you could have...

I hit 100 last night. I'd not been keeping good count in my head and accidentally watched Scary Movie as #100 (I thought it'd be 98 or 99). I've had a copy for a couple of years and decided it was finally time to get it off the unopened pile. What a craptastic way to get there! Is it me or do other people, well those over ~16, actually *like* that dreck of a excuse for "horror comedy?"

I'd planned to use something from my new "Universal Monsters" BR set for #100.

I've got a ton to do for work this week, but at 91 I should be able to limp my way to 100. Amazing how there's so much left I was thinking of watching, but won't get to.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 12th Annual October Horror Movie Challenge (Oct 1-31) Pt

I just passed 100 movies earlier today. I also watched a bunch of TV. Full seasons of American Horror Story and Penny Dreadful. And a lot of individual Halloween episodes. That probably puts me a little over 150.

With work, kids' stuff, and The Cubs making it to the World Series, I have gotten behind as well. Not that I usually make big numbers or anything. But on the nights that I am home, the Cubs are usually playing. We'll see what I can accomplishthis week, but who knows.

On the upside, I finally saw Horror Express yesterday. Not bad film at all. I am now wishing I would have jumped on that Severin OOP sale last month. Oh well.

I hit 80 this weekend thanks to taking last week off and I should be able to get to 100. There is a lot I wished I had watched too but I have a lot of FTVs this challenge and I'm pretty happy about that.

I've had a copy for a couple of years and decided it was finally time to get it off the unopened pile. What a craptastic way to get there! Is it me or do other people, well those over ~16, actually *like* that dreck of a excuse for "horror comedy?"
I saw Scary Movie when it came out and I still like it. Their casting of the principal was perfect, compared to what Scream cast. Downside is that since they made huge profits, even up to the 4th one, is that everyone else started to copy them.

I liked it better than Scream because I don't care for Neve Campbell and didn't care for the whole thing being around the rules of a horror movie. I'm more of an early 90s and earlier horror movie fan. I enjoy more horror movies from the 1930s than I do 2000 and on, where anyone can make a movie but most really shouldn't be making them. While I could perform surgery on someone, it's not something I'm good at and it wouldn't turn out well. Same for a lot of these recent horror films. If anyone wants to meet up, I'm more than willing to prove I'm not good at surgery.

Struggling at 79 titles. I think I can pull if off with 8 days left. I'm struggling through Blood Lake (1987) right now, and it's a real chore. This has got to be the worst movie of the challenge for me.
