My Thoughts: A little background; this movie recently got me back into VHS collecting. I posted a link to watch this on youtube a challenge or two ago but never actually watched it myself. And then I started seeing people on eBay pay out the nose for this VHS and I just started to get fascinated with movies never released on optical. I have purchased a dozen VHS tapes this year because of Hack O' Lantern. Never actually Hack O' Lantern because there was no way I was going to pay that premium though. Then whilst looking for challenge titles on Amazon I found that there was this very recent Blu-Ray release of this title and I had to get it. The movie it's self is a somewhat non-remarkable low budget/poorly acted horror movie but there is some almost undefinable magic here. One thing that really stuck out at me was how well this was shot, it felt like a studio movie just with small town actors hamming it up. The plot revolves around this cult that has been grooming this boy to be some sort of lead evil when he gets older but unlike most movies in this one he is down for it, really down for. And I love how the adult actor they picked for this part looks like a crazy 80's villain. There is plenty of nudity, gore and some good old fashioned 80's who's the killer here as well for good measure. Looking back I can't really point out anything that was good about this movie but it was so so enjoyable. Great last day of the challenge title and really just Halloween movie in general.

(4 out of 5)

My Thoughts: I watched it dubbed, like a charlatan. Just wanted to relax a bit more here with the last title of the challenge, also knocking off this Vampire 3-pack that has been hanging around in my 'to watch' pile since 2013. My daughter has been in and out during this challenge, often watching things she probably shouldn't but this is the first time she said a movie was scary. A Jean Rollin movie no less, it does say something about his style it does at very least have a certain gothic and unusual bent to it.
