Week Three

The forum bug that prevents one from editing long posts just hit again, guess I'll have to cut up my posts into weekly lists. Sorry for being so verbose all.

Link to Week One - Weekly tally 39. Got off to a much better than expected start.

Link to Week Two - Weekly tally 24. Slowed way down, as I spent time reorganizing my bedroom. Next week is looking even worse, with family coming to town.

Monday October 15th -
64- The Mummy's Tomb * - 6.5/10 - Rated higher than I should perhaps, only because I'm a sucker for films that refer back to other films well. This mummy sequel has some nice touches merging it with it's predecessor.
Tuesday October 16th -
65- Alien 3 - 8.5/10 - I don't understand the hate for this film, but maybe I just like "dark". This was the theatrical version, the special edition cut adds another .5 to my score.
Wednesday October 17th -
66- Alien: Resurrection - 7/10 - Possibly my favorite series of all time. Looking forward to the new AvP.
Thursday October 18th -
67-Manos: The Hands of Fate (MST3K version) * - 1/10 - That rating is for the movie itself, the MST3K version is a winner.
68- Jacob's Ladder * - 6/10 - Really enjoyed it until the ending, although I'm not sure what would have been better.
69- The Cavern (or, Within) * - 1/10 - This makes The Cave looks like Citizen Kane. I'm going to have to watch Descent again to see a decent cave movie.
70- Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens * - 9/10 - These classic silents are surprising me.
Friday October 19th -
71- Shadow of the Vampire - 8/10 - Brilliant.
72- Dracula (1931, Spanish) * -7/10 - Like most critics apparently, I think this version is better than the English one.
73- Decoys * - 2/10 - Awful, but filled with cute college women at least.
74- Decoys 2: Alien Seduction * - 3/10 - Slightly better than the first, only because I like Tobin Bell.
75- Bad Taste * - 6/10 - Funny, and possibly the grossest film I've seen. Not bad for a low budget flick. Was this Peter Jackson's debut?
Saturday October 20th -
76- Are You in the House Alone? - 4/10 - Burned this to DVD-R to free space on my DVR for some TCM movies.
77- Freaks * - 8/10 - Confession time. I've been using and laughing at "one of us" references for years without ever watching this film.
78- Jeepers Creepers (2001) (with commentary) - 6/10 - The first time I watched this, I found it mediocre and forgettable; I enjoy it more on each subsequent watching. Took me awhile to figure out where I had seen the lead actor before, Die Hard 4.
79- Psycho (1960) - 9/10 - Going to try for a Psycho marathon this weekend.
80- Psycho II * - 6/10 - Not bad for a sequel, and cool to see a younger Meg Tilly and Dennis Franz.
Sunday October 21st -
81- Psycho III * - 5/10 - Not as bad as it could have been, doubt I'll ever watch it again though.
82- Psycho IV: The Beginning * - 6/10 - Pretty good ending to the series, although I would have loved a twist ending of Norman holding the baby, and it speaking to him in his mother's voice.
83- The Grudge - 7.5/10 - Still haven't seen the original, but this one still gives me the creeps.
84- Re-Animator - 9/10 - Love this film. I guess we could count it under the "Frankenstein" category, right?
85- It's Alive (1974) - 6/10 - I remember the trailers and posters for this film scaring the crap out of me as a kid. For twenty or so years, I imagined it to be a great "monster" movie, and possibly too scary to watch. I never saw it until just a few years ago on cable or video. It probably isn't as good as I perceive it, but those many years of being afraid of it hold it up a bit for me. Anyone seen the sequels?
86- Gothika - 5/10 - Thought I'd give this film one more chance. It still wasn't very good. I'll probably watch the special features once and then sell/trade this set. Cruz was pretty good.
87- Wolf Creek - 6/10 - Scary, and well done I guess if you like gorenography, but not my type of film, will probably sell it.
88- Mark of the Vampire * - 8/10 -
Spoiler:
Nice little twist, I didn't see it coming

ViewAskewbian, while I was perusing your list, I noticed a couple of errors in numbering. It looks like you didn't count Frankenstein, which is between #29 and #30 on your list, and also, after #53, you went back to #49 (skipped #50) and started numbering from there. You're actually doing even better than you thought, not that your list isn't impressive enough already!

Thanks for the catch there, Rob. No regrets on how this list reflects on my social life. I have an excuse. I am in nowhere land Japan with long train commutes and work days of sometimes only an hour.

View can you please remove those big images from your list? It's annoying and makes people have to scroll more than need be.

2. "Night of the Demons 2"...doesn't compare to original, but young Christine Taylor is tasty.
3. "Re-Animator"...a little better the 2nd time around.
4. "Hellraiser"...infinitely better the 2nd time around. maybe the 1st i just wasn't in the mood. but, i dug the atmosphere and gore this time much more.
5. "Deadly Friend" ...saw once when i was a kid. not a bad little horror movie. definitely doesn't look and feel like a Wes Craven movie though.
6. "Leprechaun"...something about the little people and Jen Aniston looks really smooth and silky.
7. "Leprechaun 2"...eh.
8. "Bram Stoker's Dracula"...saw it in theaters and didn't like it too much. it was better this time, but not as good as i had hoped. a little too stylized and random for me.
9. "1408"...not bad, not bad at all. a good little horror thriller and def. liked the ending on the DC rather than theatrical. the dc end was more in line with Stephen King, but i wonder which is truer to the book ending, if it indeed is the theatrical.
10. "Dr. Giggles"...a slight cut above your average 80's wannabe schlock fest.
11. "From Beyond"...wow! did i really like this movie. i liked it a lot more than "Re-Animator" dare i say. very entertaining, provacative and i dug the creepy crawlies effects a lot.
October 19-20
12. "Wrong Turn 2"...oh man! is this movie entertaining. that opening kill is one of the most gruesome and creative ones i have seen in a very long time. too bad the others aren't as inventive, but g-damn if that wasn't a way to open a movie!!!!! i mean don't get me wrong the movie is not well made and every character is a caricature and the whole movie is retread of all the other current pseudo-grimy/horror films, but it to me was way better than "Hills Have Eyes" remake and pt 2 and leagues better than WT 1. but wow! was this a nice surprise.

13. "Death Proof"...it was like watching two different movies with the 2 vinettes. night and day, figuratively and literally. the 1st vinette was classic Tarantino. the dialogue was inventive and awesome, like any great QT movie. the build up was tense and palpable. i loved the first one. i loved the look as well with the grain and all, it was perfect. the 2nd vinette took me right out until the last 20 min, but even the last 20 was not great. the look went to modern which i disliked and the characters were caricatures with stereotypical speak and over done imo. the dialogue was anything but inspired and i just didn't like this half at all. then Stuntman Mike
Spoiler:
is reduced to this snivelling wimp just bc he got shot in the arm and then he runs for his life! didn't jive with his persona. he became an unmitigated mess from 1 bullet wound and was actually groveling and apologizing to these females that he has seemingly mastered and killed for years?? i don't think so.
i don't know what that 2nd half was, but it was in direct contrast to the 1st and that sucked. i liked it good overall though and will happily revisit. i just wish it was more consistent throughout.

14. "Planet Terror"...it was good. expected a little more, but entertaining with some great effects and creative kill shots.

10/19- (18) The Horror of Dracula- Good, Hammer title Christopher Lee/ Peter Cushing. 8.5/10 (19) Scary Movie 4- Campy spoof of recent horror movies, funny, silly, stupid, but ok, if that's what you're expecting 7.5/10 10/20- (20) The Haunted Palace- Great Vincent Price movie. Probably my favorite one. When I think of Price, I think of this movie first. 9/10

Week Four

The forum bug that prevents one from editing long posts just hit again, guess I'll have to cut up my posts into weekly lists. Sorry for being so verbose all.

Link to Week One - Weekly tally 39. Got off to a much better than expected start.

Link to Week Two - Weekly tally 24. Slowed way down, as I spent time reorganizing my bedroom. Next week is looking even worse, with family coming to town.

Link to Week Three - Weekly tally 25. Only one film a day the first three days, but got back up to speed by the end of the week.

Monday October 22nd -
89- The Devil-Doll * - 7/10 - Lionel Barrymore gives a great performance....twice.
90- AVP: Alien vs. Predator - 7/10 - Call me a fanboy, but I truly enjoy all the films of these series. I'm hoping that AvP2 improves on this one though.
91- Jaws - 10/10 - My favorite film of all time, or at least tied with Ben Hur at the top.
92- The Mummy (1999) - 7/10 - More action than horror really, but fun.
93- Soul of a Monster * - 5/10 - Preachy, and slow, but somewhat charming for some reason. DVRd and saved, might watch it again next year.
94- Sometimes They Come Back... For More * - 1/10 - Am going to break my rule of never watching movies out of order. It's on my DVR and I just need to clear it for more TCM horror next weekend. Wow, that was awful. I find Faith Ford adorable, but again, wow, absolutely horrible.
95- Wicked Little Things * - 2/10 - This is a film to die for? No, it is crap. Some of the scenes with the kids were scary (their faces, their eating habits), but the script was lame, nothing really new here.

Tuesday October 23rd -
96- Night of the Living Dead (1968) - 8/10 - Believe it or not, I just watched this for the first time (in its entirety at least) a few months ago. I think I'll end collecting all the dead movies and watch them next year, as I've seen very few of them, but they seem like a fun thing to collect.
97- King Kong (1976) - 7/10 - The least of the three versions in my opinion, but still a more than decent film. Jessica Lange is so beautiful.
98- The Monster Squad - 7/10 - Better than The Goonies, yes, I said it. I really think that The Goonies is one of those films that you can fall in love with as a kid, and glance over it's weaknesses as you mature; but if you see it for the first time as an adult, it's just average. The Monster Squad isn't much better, but slightly so.
99- Hellboy - 8/10 - Have the director's cut unopened somewhere; but this is just the theatrical cut. Great comic book, and movie. Haven't watched the animated "sequels" yet, any good?
100- The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) * - 6/10 - Ok, I really wanted to choose something different for my #100. But I was at my sister's, and she had a limited selection of horror, so I grudgingly allowed this film, which I never planned to see, to claim this honored spot. And while I am not really a fan of this type of horror, it wasn't as bad as I expected, and I may even agree to watch the prequel with my sister next week.
101- Rinne (Reincarnation) * - 7.5/10 - A much better film in the "8 Films to Die For" series. Somewhat confusing, but a stellar idea/script. I'll watch this again.
Wednesday October 24th -
102- Disturbia - 8/10 - I really enjoy this film, even on my 3rd viewing now.
103- The Ring - 8/10 - Embarrassing story that I prefer to not tell, but this film made me cry the first time I saw it. Here goes viewing number two......
104- Premonition - 7/10 - I'm a sucker for any story about time travel or such stuff. This could have been so much better, such a great premise, and I still enjoy it more than most.
105- Cat's Eye - 7.5/10 - One of the best King adaptations in my opinion. I think I bought Cujo recently, so I'll be getting some more King soon.

Thursday October 25th -
106- The Prophecy: Forsaken * - 3/10 - Interesting ideas, mediocre execution, weak finish. I didn't realize until after the film that this was the fourth (?) film in the Christopher Walken Prophecy movies. Darn, haven't seen any of the others yet, so broke my sequel rule again.
107- Die! Die! My Darling! * - 6/10 - Great performance by Tallulah Bankhead.
108- Way of the Vampire * - 1.5/10 - Five minutes in, and I think that this just may turn into the worst film I've ever seen. I'm quite excited actually. Oh, I see that it a film from "The Asylum", now I understand the infamy of that studio. I think this will be my first film from them. And hopefully my last.
109- Dark Prince: The True Story of Dracula * - 6/10 - I'm a sucker for "historical" horror.
110- Vampires: Los Muertos * - 4/10 - Jon Bon Jovi?! How did I miss this? I enjoy the James Woods original, this was like a pale copy.
111- Spiders II: Breeding Ground - 2.5/10 - I picked this to DVR so that I could confront my fear of spiders. Five minutes in, I realized that I had seen this trainwreck before. Hopefully I won't make the mistake a third time.
112- High Tension * - 6/10 - A little too gory for my taste, but surprisingly good.
113- Slashed Dreams * - 2/10 - This came in one of those 50 packs, and I was intrigued by the fact that it had a 1975 Robert Englund appearance. Pretty bad, even for a low budget older film.

Friday October 26th -
114- Scary Movie 4 * - ?/10 -

I guess this is the only place left to post about the now-over challenge.

Kinda sad that things ended this way, but I had fun, and plan on watching my horror movies straight through to Halloween.

'Tis been fun.

MOD NOTE: Actually I suggest nobody talk about the challenge any more, or as mentioned this thread will end up getting shut down too. Apologies for taking such a draconian response but it is going to take time to sort through everything, and action like this doesn't happen quickly since we have to work it out via posts/emails. As mentioned I'm leaving this open as a courtesy but please keep the non list/discussion posts to a minimum.

thx

Just for clarification... please feel free to update your lists and continue posting the movies you see here. The discussion portion of this year's challenge is over for now. I'm trying to get some of the mods together to go over everything and see if we can clear it up/reopen it but since we all have jobs and communicating via email/posts isn't the quickest thing in the world I'm not sure how long it's going to take.

Since there won't be much discussion and it probably won't get bumped much I went ahead and stuck the thread until the end of the month to make it easier to find (once you find it has been stuck ).
