Re: The 14th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa

1- The Omen 1976. The opening score takes me back to when I watched it in the theatre and scared the crap out of me.
2- The Wolf Man. 1941. The best of the Universal horrors in my opinion.
3- The Others. Good haunted house movie .
4- Fall of the House of Usher. 1960. How far would you go to keep a family member close? Death?
5- The Reaping. A teenage girl holds the key to the 10 deadly plagues in Louisiana?
6- Slaughter of the Vampires. 60ís B&W Italian horror. A vampire reeks havoc over the Italian countryside.
7- The Outpost. What if you were hired to check out an old WWII bunker that turned out to have a German army of the undead.
8- Horror of Dracula. 1958. This is why you buy a region free player. Vast improvement.
9- Friday the 13th 1980. I always thought that I would turn into Ralph in my later years- thereís still hope for me yet.
10- The Lords of Salem- Freaky movie, what else is new, Rob Zombie movie. A descendant from the Salem witch trials is chosen to lead a coven of witches.
11- Argentoís Dracula. A bit cartoonish, but I liked it.

14- Friday the 13th the series- The Quilt of Hathor PT. II.
15- The Night Stalker- One of the best ever TV vampire shows.
16- Psycho. 1960. This has gotten better with repeat viewings. Norman Bates in the ending scene. Sitting all alone at the police station was very creepy.
Psycho II. 1983. The sequel works very well. Relatives of the victims of Norman try to make him go insane again.
18- Children of the corn. 1984. A corn god worshiping cult that kills people over 19 in Nebraska.

28- Brides of Dracula. Great. Even better in HD.
29- The Haunted Palace. My favorite from the great Vincent Price, in the HD set also. Looks glorious.
30- The Fog. The original. Some great 70ís Shlock here. Complete with the 8-track/ radio component system that I noticed right off.

33- And Now the Screaming Starts. A newlywed couple, a mansion, an old curse, wife goes mad, complete with Peter Cushing to boot.

35- From Hell- Take on the Jack the Ripper story.
36- American Horror Story- E6
37- Mohawk- Saw this on someone elseís list so I thought that iíd give it a try. Not sure of the horror aspect -maybe a wild card here.

39- Evil of Frankenstein. The baron goes back home to continue with his work.
40- The Howling II. Karen Whiteís family go to Transylvania to deal with other werewolves.
41- Shadow of the Vampire. What if the actor who played the vampire in Nosferatu was a real vampire?
42- Fright Night 2- A female vampire roams Romania.

48- Rob Zombieís Halloween. His best movie. Remake on the classic Halloween.
49- The Birds. Hitchcock classic in every way. Never gets old.

51- The Last Man on Earth. A Plague takes out the human race..or so he thought.
52- The Mummy. Ok Universal 30-40ís horror, kind of slow a times, but ok.
