09/30/2013
01. I Sell the Dead,, 2008, Glenn McQuaid, Movie, Dvd, US, Color, ☼
Fun shaggy dog horror about a couple of good natured ghouls

10/01/2013
02. Spooky, Spooky,, 1988, Sammo Hung, Movie, Stream, HK, Color,
There's nothing like an 80's HK horror comedy. Haunted cop shops might even be a HK horror sub-genre

10/02/2013
03. Whistle and I'll Come to You,, 2010, Andy De Emmony, TV/Movie, Dvd, GB, Color, ☼
M.R. James Christmas ghost story. A shuddery morsel.
04. Ghostwatch,, 1992, Lesley Manning, TV/Movie, Dvd, GB, Color,
Fun, spooky, BBC Halloween prank in the vein of Well's War of the Worlds broadcast

10/03/2013
05. The Beach Girls and the Monster,, 1965, Jon Hall, Movie, Dvd, US, B&W, ☼
Not great, but there is a nice (if nonsensical) twist
06. The Monster That Challenged the World,, 1957, Arnold Laven, Movie, Dvd, US, B&W,
Solid late Fifties creature feature

10/04/2013
07. Movie Macabre, Frankenstein's Castle of Freaks, 1984, , TV, Dvd, US, Color, ☼
Michael Dunn is golden even in dren like this

10/05/2013
08. The Corpse Bride,, 2005, Tim Burton, Movie, Blu, US, Color,
09. ParaNorman,, 2012, Chris Butler/Sam Fell, Movie, Stream, US, Color,

10/06/2013
10. Scooby Doo and the Goblin King,, 2008, Joe Sichta, Movie, Stream, US, Color,
11. Monster House,, 2006, Gil Kenan, Movie, Dvd, US, Color,

10/07/2013
12. The Crimson Cult (Curse of the Crimson Altar,, 1968, Vernon Sewell, Movie, Stream, GB, Color, ☼
Wants to be The Devil Rides Out, also released in 1968. Though it may have more in common with The Witches(1966)

10/08/2013
13. Shadow of the Cat,, 1961, John Gilling, Movie, Stream, GB, B&W, ☼

10/09/2013
14. The Ghost and the Darkness,, 1996, Stephen Hopkins, Movie, Dvd, US, Color,

10/10/2013
15. X-Files,"Detour"/"Roadrunners", 1997/2000, , TV, Dvd, US, Color,
16. Django Kill... If You Live, Shoot!,, 1967, Giulio Questi, Movie, Dvd, Stream, Color, ☼

10/11/2013
17. Highway to Hell,, 1991, Ate de Jong, Movie, Stream, US, Color,

10/12/2013
18. Kolchak: The Night Stalker,"They Have Been, They Are, They Will Be..."/"The Vampire", 1974, , TV, Dvd, US, Color,
If more episodes could have been like "The Vampire" we might have got more than one season of Kolchak
19. The Headless Ghost,, 1959, Peter Graham Scott, Movie, Dvd, GB, B&W, ☼
Harmless trifle with no bite, but its bark is mildly amusing
20. Thunder Cops (aka Operation Pink Squad 2),, 1987, Jeffrey Lau, Movie, Dvd, HK, Color,
One of the top five Hong Kong horror comedies (of the '80s at least) An almost perfect example of the once upon a time zany spirit of HK film-making

10/13/2013
21. The Awful Dr. Orloff,, 1964, Jesús Franco, Movie, Dvd, Spain, B&W, ☼
22. Dead Cert,, 2010, Steven Lawson, Movie, Dvd, GB, Color, ☼

10/17/2013
29. The Fake Ghost Catchers,, 1982, Lau Kar-Wing, Movie, Dvd, HK, Color, ☼
Late period Shaw Bros attempt to hop onto the burgeoning Hong Kong horror/comedy wagon. All the parts are there and it's not bad, but it never quite gels.
30. The Devil's Hand,, 1962, William J. Hole Jr., Movie, Stream, US, B&W, ☼

10/18/2013
31. Wicked City,, 1987, Yoshiaki Kawajiri, Movie, Dvd, JP, Color,
Surprisingly romantic, given all the tentacles, fights and amorphous bodies.
32. The Bat Whispers,, 1930, Roland West, Movie, Stream, US, B&W,
Fun, visually sophisticated (for it's milieu), wide-screen, old dark house movie, interesting if only because it must be one of the first of the old dark house movies made as a talkie (predates The Old Dark House by a couple of years). It's based on a stage play that has been adapted for the big/small screen several times, mostly as The Bat (1926/1959/1960).

10/19/2013
33. Grimm,"Three Coins in a Fuchsbau"/"Plumed Serpent", 2012, , TV, Stream, US, Color, ☼
34. The Queen of Black Magic,, 1983, Liliek Sudjio, Movie, Dvd, ID, Color, ☼
35. The Vulture,, 1966, Liliek Sudjio, Movie, Stream, GB, Color,
Mostly a cheap stinker

10/20/2013
36. The Vampire Bat,, 1933, Frank R. Strayer, Movie, Stream, US, B&W, ☼
37. Vampire Princess Miyu,"Unearthly Kyoto"/"A Banquet of Marionettes"/"Fragile Armor"/"Frozen in Time", 1988, , OAV, Dvd, JP, Color,

10/21/2013
