Re: The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa

The List
Spoiler:

Sundown Sep 30:
1. The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo E01: "To All the Ghouls I've Loved Before" / The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo E02: "Scoobra Kadoobra"
October 1:
2. The Mummy (2017) w/ Commentary
October 3:
3. Demon Wind - Not bad considering I heard it referred to as an Evil Dead knock off. I can see the comparisons, but this had a different mood and style going about it. I approve even if the acting is pretty rough.
4. Hollow Man - I don't think this has aged very well. There are parts of it that are still quite interesting to see put out there, a lot of it feels rough today.
October 4:
5. Skinwalkers - Huh, not what I expected. It had some interesting points, but it seemed to drag a good bit. Probably won't watch this one again.
6. Humanoids from the Deep - Another I probably won't watch again. Not because it drags, but because of the nature of what it is. Although, it does what it is pretty well.
7. Vampire Wars - That really drug. It looked pretty nice, I guess. This is a rough day...
8. Green Room - My second time watching this. It might actually be harder to watch when knowing what is coming. Still very effective.
9. Unfriended - I expected it to be pretty bad, but it was okay. The acting wasn't that great, but it played out pretty decent.
October 8:
10. Saturday the 14th
11. The Willies
October 9:
Nothing
October 10:
