WEEK #1

Mini-reviews in progress!


Monday, October 1st
1. Night of the Comet (1984) - Originally caught this a few years back on "MonsterVision". Good '80s cheese, but could've used more zombies.
2. The Host (2006) - Excellent special effects. And the ending was a refreshing change from the usual mainstream.
3. The Devil Commands (1941)
4. The Witchfinder General (1968)
5. The Equinox... A Journey Into the Supernatural (1967) - And here I thought "The Evil Dead" was original!
6. The Cat o' Nine Tails (1971)

Tuesday, October 2nd
7. The Flesh and the Fiends (1960)
8. Nightmare City (1980) - Running zombies with a breast fetish!
9. Dog Soldiers (2002) -
10. Madhouse (1974) -
11. Manhattan Baby (1982) - I'm very forgiving of the slow pacing of many Fulci films, but this one was just intolerable.

Wednesday, October 3rd
12. Slime City (1988) - Great '80s gore flick in the vein of "Basket Case" and "Street Trash".
13. Theater of Blood (1973)
14. Slither (2006)
15. Frankenhooker (1990)

Thursday, October 4th
16. Corridors of Blood (1958)
17. 1408: Director's Cut (2007)
18. Paranoiac (1963)
19. Frailty (2001)
20. Dark Waters (1994)

Friday, October 5th
21. Scarecrows (1988)
22. The Haunted Strangler (aka "Grip of the Strangler") (1958)
23. Tales of Terror (1962)
24. Curse of the Demon (aka "Night of the Demon") (1957) - I actually agree with the producer's decision to show the demon...less is not always more.
25. I Walked with a Zombie (1943) -
26. Horrors of Malformed Men (1969) - Don't really have an opinion...yet.

Saturday, October 6th
27. Twice Told Tales (1963)
28. The Burning (1981) - Friday the 13 + Meatballs = The Burning. I was honestly expecting just another generic F13/slasher ripoff, but instead got
29. Dr. Giggles (1992) - One of the few decent '90s slashers.
30. From Beyond (1986) - Excellent.
31. The Hand (1981)
32. Tombs of the Blind Dead (La Noche del terror ciego) (1971)

Sunday, October 7th
33. Prom Night (1980)
34. The Return of the Vampire (1944)
35. Vampyr - Der Traum des Allan Grey (1932)
36. Cemetery Man (aka "Dellamorte Dellamore") (1994)
37. The Return of the Evil Dead (El Ataque de los muertos sin ojos) (1973)

Week One

Monday October 1st -
1- The Brain That Wouldn't Die (MST3K version) - 7.5/10 - This is a guilty pleasure of mine, one of the first horror films that I remember seeing, back when I was 8 or so I imagine. Very vivid imagery, I can always picture the basement laboratory, the shriveled arm, the death scenes, the blood smeared walls. If I watched it now for the first time, I'd perhaps recognize it as cheesy mediocre horror, but because of my history with it, it will always remain a favorite. I think I own at least 3 versions of it on DVD. The MST3K riffing is quite good on this one, Mike's first film as lead.
2- Horror 101 * - 1.5/10 - I bought this years ago (part of a big sale, probably B1G1F), haven't watched it until today. It and its sequel seemed appropriate for this contest and this day, just because of the titles. Wow, did this movie suck. Would rate it lower, but it was cool to see Bo Derek again. Pretty bad acting, few scares, and an ending I pretty much had totally figured out 10 minutes into the film. I didn't bring much else to work, and want to just get this disc watched and then traded/sold, so I think I'll suffer thru the other two films on this disc. But tomorrow I'm picking some good horror, maybe the Frankenstein series
3- Horror 102: Endgame * - .5/10 - Halfway thru and pretty lame so far. I'm glad there is no Horror 103. Wow, real crap. Another surprise ending, this one I didn't figure out, but only because I didn't care enough about any aspect of this movie to think. No possible reason to ever watch this film again. There is a third "bonus" movie on this disc, from the same producers/director as the first two. I must hate myself, starting it now.
4- Museum of the Dead * - 0/10 - I'm not expecting much, this one has even lower ratings on IMDB than the first two on the disc. But I'm committed to watching some of these discs I've been collecting over the years. Disc already up for trade in the exchange forum (hopefully anyone who wants it isn't reading these reviews). Quite possible the worst movie I've ever seen. I want to stick to a 0-10 scale, so I think I'll have to raise Horror 102 to a .5 from a zero, as nothing should be compared to this mess of a film. I prefer to stop giving this film thought or time, so for a fuller explanation as to why it is so bad, see the comments on IMDB.
5- Frankenstein (1931) (with historian commentary) - 9/10 - I needed something good to clear my mind of the nonsense I watched all day. The commentary was excellent.
6- Frankenstein (1910) * - NR/10 - (Wildcard #1, length) The first American horror film? Not really fair to rate this silent, but interesting from a historical perspective.
Tuesday October 2nd -
7- The Hitcher 2: I've Been Waiting * - 6/10 - Finally watched this sequel to one of my favorite horror films of all time. I didn't realize that this was a direct sequel of sorts, complete with C. Thomas Howell, flashbacks, and locations from the first film. They didn't help much, as this film is not very good. But I'm still giving it a 6, based on my history with the original, and all the tie-ins. If I saw this one first, more like a 3/10.
8- Jaws: The Revenge * - 4/10 - Jaws is probably my favorite movie of all time. I re-watch it often, but have, until recently, avoided the third and fourth films in the "series". Jaws 2 was ok, but I had heard so many bad things about 3 and 4 that I avoided them, for fear of putting a pall on my love for the original. I finally watched Jaws 3 a month or two ago, and regret doing so. And although I am sure that this film, "Jaws 4", will be incredibly putrid, I feel the need to just get it over with and watch it this one time. Here goes. Half way thru, it's pretty bad. But like with Hitcher 2, I like all the references to and characters from the first movie. The child/father mimic scene, while somewhat poorly done, brought a smile to my face. Took me about 8 hours to get thru this, busy at work today. It wasn't as bad as I feared.
9- Hideous! * - 3/10 - Another that I have owned for years but never watched. Not really sure how to rate this one. I almost want to give it a 1 or less, as it was quite, hideous. But something about it is intriguing, like maybe if I watch it again someday I'll actually like it. Strange, I rarely get that feeling. I think it will pass and I'll trade/sell this disc.
Wednesday October 3rd -
10- Bride of Frankenstein - 8/10 - Again, I had to wash the bad taste of the last few films out with a classic.
11- Alien - 10/10 - Decided to try to watch all 4 Alien films today. The original is my 5th or so favorite film of all time.
12- Aliens - 9/10 - In my top twenty.
13- Shaun of the Dead - 8.5/10 - Taking a short break in my Alien marathon for my first "fun" horror since my first film of the challenge. The more I see this movie the more well done I think it is.
Thursday October 4th -
14- The Execution of Mary Stuart (1895) * - NA/10 - (wildcard #2, length) Nice try at a "special effect".
15- Le Chaudron Infernal * - NA/10 - (wildcard #3, length) More early special effects. I've used up all my wildcards, but wanted to experience horror films from their origins.
16- Son of Frankenstein * - 7.5/10 - Much better sequel than I anticipated.
17- The Ghost of Frankenstein * - 7/10 - Again, I enjoyed this much more than I planned.
18- House of Frankenstein * - 5/10 - Finishing off the Universal Frankenstein series, although I guess there were a few more crossover titles. Nope as good as I had hoped. Combining Dracula and The Wolfman with Frankenstein was better done in The Monster Squad.
19- The Frankenstein Files: How Hollywood Made a Monster (documentary) * - 8/10 - Very well done documentary, but I think I'm Frankensteined out for awhile.
N/A- Boo - 3/10 - This 1932 Universal short won't count for my totals, but I wanted to watch it before I put the disc away. It is interesting in perspective perhaps, but not very funny or all that well done.
20- House on Haunted Hill (1959) - 8/10 - Pulled this disc out to watch the other film on the disc, The Last Man on Earth, in anticipation for the forthcoming "remake". But I noticed that I owned no other 1950s horror, so decided to watch this gem again. I remembered that I also have the version with Mike Nelson commentary, and was ready for some laughs, so watched this Legend release instead. Pretty funny riffing, not his best work, but close. They have both the original B&W and the colorized versions on the disc, I watched it in color for the first time. They did a fine job with it, although I generally prefer to watch my films as they were originally shown.
21- The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) * - 7/10 - Possibly the first feature length horror film. I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did.
22- The Last House on the Left * - 3/10 - The first gorenography? Very disturbing. I knew absolutely nothing about this film going in, total blind buy. I actually brought it to work the other day, but 30 seconds in found it to be NSFW with that mild shower scene. Little did I know.....
23- Hollow Man - 6/10 - Wanted to finally watch with the director/star commentary on this, but it has been so long since I've seen it that I feel I have to watch it normally first. Interesting cast.
Friday October 5th -
24- The Hidden 2 * - 3/10 - The original is a guilty pleasure, and one of my desert island top 30. I started to watch the sequel once, and gave up in frustration. But I'm using this challenge to clear out some of my unwatched horror, so I'm trying this again. Fairly awful, the best part was that the first 15 minutes of this film was the actual last 15 minutes of the classic original. Yes, they actually re-used the same exact footage. I've seen 1 to 2 minute recaps before, but this was about 15 minutes. Raised it from 1 star to 3.
25- Incubus - 7/10 - The first film in Esperanto. I'm a big Shatner fan (I know...), and this is perhaps my favorite film of his besides Free Enterprise.
26- Ringu * - 7/10 - Sacrilege to purists maybe, but I think the American remake is scarier and a better film.
27- The Omen (1976) * - 9/10 - Can't believe I've waited this long to see this classic.
28- The Omen (2006) * - 3/10 - Why?
Saturday October 6th -
29- King Kong (1933) (with commentary) - 9/10 - Still amazing.
30- April Fool's Day * - 6/10 - I'm not sure if I should leave the * there or not. I am almost positive that I had never seen this movie before, but after watching it, I know that I have seen the ending before. But I am incredibly firm on my philosophy of never watching a film unless I see it from the very beginning. If I walk in even 2 seconds late to a theater, I'll walk out and see another film or exchange my ticket for another day. So this film was either so forgettable that I have no memory of the first 85 minutes, or it was the one time in my life that I watched part of a movie I had not seen before. Or maybe I originally watched it back in my drinking days. Either way, not all that bad.
31-The Evil Dead (with Bruce Campbell commentary) - 8/10 - So I was on a first date with this girl, a group outing actually. After dinner, we went to the video store and wanted to find a scary movie. I had heard things about this film, and insisted that we rent this film. I never went out with that girl again. I imagine I lost her in that scene in the woods....
32- The Silence of the Lambs (with "group" commentary) - 10/10 - A modern classic.
33- Flesh for Frankenstein * - 1.5/10 - I bought this years ago when I thought about collecting every Criterion release. I gave up that plan, but am glad that I ended up with this one, as it is the closest I'll come to owning an X rated film, and therefore I can check something else off the stats section below.
34- House of the Dead * - 1/10 - Bought this only to satisfy the "Uwe Boll" part of the challenge. I imagine I'll regret this next ninety minutes.
Sunday October 7th -
35- The Fog (1980) - 7/10 - I had no plans to watch this for this challenge, as I watched this three times last year. The original, again with the commentary, and the remake. But I'm quite OCD about completing the "extra stats" section, and I wanted to get a Jamie Lee Curtis film watched. I plan to watch all the Halloweens at the end of the month, but just in case I move on to some other pursuit, I better watch this, my only non-Halloween JLC horror, now. Much better than the remake.
36- Below * - 7/10 - Been meaning to watch this for quite awhile, as I am a fan of David Twohy and Darren Aronofsky.
N/A- The Kingdom (2007) * - 9/10 - Thriller, not horror, although the subject matter is as horrific as you can get. But this movie was so good that I wanted to give it a little plug here. I'll watch some horror in the theater next weekend, RE3 and 30 Days of Night.
37- The Phantom of the Opera (1925) * - 8/10 -
38- The Satanic Rites of Dracula * - 4/10 - Horrible ending.
39- The Rocky Horror Picture Show * - 7/10 - Not sure how I feel about this one. I might have loved it, or maybe I hated it, but I am glad I watched it finally, and will see it again, hopefully in a group setting.

Monday October 8th -
40- Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941) - 9/10 - Incredible performances from Spencer Tracey and Lana Turner. First time I've seen this since I was a kid.
N/A- Hyde and Hare - 8/10 - Makes me want to dig out my Looney Toons DVDs, but I guess I'll wait until November.
41- Gremlins - 7/10 - Haven't seen this since the VHS rental days.
42- The Mummy (1932) - 7/10 - Can't remember the last time I saw any of the older Mummy movies. To be honest, after watching this, I have no memory of seeing it before. I know I saw at least a couple mummy movies in my youth, but nothing in this one rang any bells (speaking of which, I need to watch The Hunchback of Notre Dame). Karloff had such a great look, perfect for horror films.
43- The Mummy's Hand * - 6.5/10 - More humor in this follow-up.
Tuesday October 9th -
44- Tremors - 9.5/10 - Some call this a guilty pleasure, but it is more than that for me; one of my top 20 films of all time.
45- Tremors 2: Aftershocks - 8/10 - Again, I acknowledge that I rate this so highly partly because of my love for the original. But I still love all the Baconless sequels. I love the little world of Rejection, the references to the original throughout the sequels, and the appearances of the original actors.
46- The Sixth Sense - 8/10 - First time watching my DVD, haven't seen this since the theater. Disappointed that I couldn't forget "the twist", but was still surprised at how powerfully this affected me. I jumped once or twice, and welled up at the ending. I'm a wimp.
Wednesday October 10th -
47- Tremors 3: Back to Perfection - 8/10 - Almost had a movie-less day. Days of little sleep caught up to me, and I needed a break to do non-movie things and catch up on sleep.
Thursday October 11th -
48- The Cave (2005) * - 6/10 - Would have been a totally forgettable action-horror, but I loved the little post ending. Also enjoyed seeing Eddie Cibrian, who I loved in Invasion.
49- Resident Evil - 8.5/10 - Watching these in anticipation of seeing the third in the theater tomorrow. I love Milla.
50- Resident Evil: Apocalypse - 7/10 - Pretty decent follow-up. Above average action horror IMO. Hope to get at least the same out of the third movie tomorrow.
51- Identity (2003) - 8/10 - Another first time DVD viewing, haven't seen it since the theater. And again, I couldn't forget the twist ending. Still loved it though, John Cusack was great as usual. I wish they had ended it at the "I see you in orange groves" line, a touching moment.
52- The Hidden (with commentary) - 9/10 - Love the little touches of humor, the script, the basic plot. Maybe I should call it a guilty pleasure, but again, I'll confess that it is a bit more than that for me, and a desert island disc (top 25-30). Pretty decent commentary track, my first time thru that.
53- The Hitcher (1986) - 9/10 - Another all-time favorite of mine, perhaps I'm watching too many of those lately, should spread them out a bit more. Watched the disappointing sequel last week, although it had its moments; and may rent the remake later this month. I can't imagine it coming close to the creepiness Rutger Hauer exudes in this film.
N/A- The Skeleton Dance - 8/10 - Classic Silly Symphonies. Watched to satisfy the animated category, since Monster House is not listed as horror at IMDB.
54- The Fly (1986) - 8/10 - I dated a girl that looked just like Geena Davis.
Friday October 12th -
55- The Lost Boys * - 6/10 - Somehow avoided watching this movie until just now. I know a lot of people love it, but it was just ok to me. I think it is one of those films, like the Goonies, that you could fall in love with as a kid, but not as an adult.
56- Le Pacte des Loups (The Brotherhood of the Wolf) - 8/10 - Probably the longest movie I'll find for this challenge, at just over two and a half hours.
57- Brotherhood of the Wolf: The Guts of the Beast * - 7/10 - My first documentary with subtitles.
58- The Seeker: The Dark is Rising * - 6/10 - Fairly mediocre adaptation of the book. The acting is fairly bad, nothing all that original in the script.
N/A- Why Did I Get Married? * - 7.5/10 - I had a free ticket to use before it expired, and this movie was the only thing starting at the time I showed up. I walked into it knowing absolutely nothing about the film. Once in the theater, I knew that it must be a Tyler Perry flick, as I was the only whitey in the theater. I expected to hate it immensely, and argue here that it should count in my list, as it was going to be quite horrific. However, I really really enjoyed it. The characters are a bit stereotypical perhaps, and Janet Jackson is never going to win an acting award, but I laughed by ass off.
Saturday October 13th -
59- The Making of Brotherhood of the Wolf * - 7/10 - Another excellent documentary. I wish I knew French, as I'd love to listen to the multiple commentaries on this film. With these documentaries, the hour long deleted scenes, and other special features on the 3 disc set, I've spent perhaps 10 hours on this one film.
60- Resident Evil: Extinction * - 7/10 - Not bad for a third, but just more of the same really. But when that same is Milla, I'm ok with it.
N/A- Eastern Promises * - 8/10 - I've been seeing a lot of thrillers in the theater lately, although I really think you all should let me count this as horror, as I was not expecting to see Viggo's penis flapping around for an extended scene. Great performances from Vincent Cassell, Naomi Watts, and Viggo Mortenson. Sure to get some Oscar nods.
Sunday October 14th -
61- Wishmaster * - 3/10 - Lame.
62- The Island of Dr. Moreau (1977) * - 5.5/10 - Never saw the remake, heard it is pretty weak. There was a moment late in the film where Michael York looked just like Val Kilmer, up until that point I had forgotten that Kilmer was in the remake. I'll probably rent the remake some day just to see how bad it really was.
63- Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies * - 3/10 - Decided to finish off this double feature disc while it was out, now I can get rid of it, as I can't see myself ever watching them again. But Andrew Divoff was excellent as the bad guy, hopefully his career will strengthen. He's rumored to be in the new Indiana Jones film.

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


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.

Hit the long post forum software bug, have to break up my week.

Friday October 26th -
114- Scary Movie 4 * - 6.5/10 - I had seen one or two of the earlier films in this series, and wasn't overly impressed. This one was better, although perhaps I only liked it because I had seen The Grudge very recently, and was familiar with most of the movies being spoofed.
115- The Exorcist * - 8.5/10 - I have purposely resisted watching this film all of my life. Cut to the chase reason; because I know that demon possession can be real. I was too scared to watch it. Well, I bought it years ago (I think it was actually free with some mail-in offer back in my early DVD days), knowing that I must confront my terror and watch it someday. Also, it is considered a classic of horror, my favorite genre. I waited until I could watch it in the morning, and have all day to recover. I'm glad I did, there is no way I could sleep right now. I was going to make it a marathon and watch the sequels and prequels later, but now I doubt I'll do that. Perhaps some comedy horror later tonight.
116- Exorcist II: The Heretic * -3/10 - And there it was, my horror comedy. Well, it was so bad of a sequel it was more criminal, not funny. I hear III is better, I'll watch that and then something funny before dreamtime.
117- Exorcist III * - 7/10 - Not nearly as scary as the first, but quite well done, and progresses the story nicely.

Saturday October 27th -
118- Arachnid * - 2.5/10 - Extremely mediocre, nothing new here.
119- Dead Men Walking * - 4/10 - DVR was filling up, almost deleted this when I realized this was an Asylum film, but, for the challenge, decided to watch it. It is actually pretty good considering. Deleted and will never watch again of course....

Wanted to watch more last night and today, but my parents picked this weekend to move. I tried to explain to them how I had to watch 12 movies per day to build my totals, but parents just don't understand.

Sunday October 28th -

Pretty much finished the move yesterday, so am going to try 24 hours of horror today. Only 6 hours in, and acutely realize that this plan should have involved me getting more than 12 hours of total sleep the past 3 nights. Still going to try, will post tomorrow when I'm done (or wake up after failing...).

120- Jenifer * - 5/10 - Biases: I love Steven Weber (mainly from his Wings role) and he wrote the teleplay and starred here. I also love Bruce Jones, who wrote the original comic book story. The concept is decent, the acting fine, but the ending is so darn predictable. Very disappointing, as I thought that this would be my favorite MOH perhaps. I hope it gets better.
121- The Black Cat (1941) * - 6/10 - A fun little Bela Lugosi flick. Almost seemed like an Abbot and Costello film at times. Confusingly, Lugosi also starred in a 1934 film of the exact same title.
122- Cigarette Burns * - 6/10 - Awesome premise.
N/A - Le Fin Absolue du Monde * - 10/10 - Just kidding. I don't think I'd watch it actually.
123- Man Made Monster
124- Imprint
125- Sick Girl
126- White Zombie
127- The Vampire Bat
128- Horror Island
129- Dracula (1931)
130- The Unknown
131- Haeckel's Tale
132- The Mummy's Ghost
133- The Mummy's Curse
134- Deer Woman
135- London After Midnight
136- The Corpse Vanishes
137- Pick Me Up
138- Captive Wild Woman
139- Dead Men Walk
140- The Fair-Haired Child
141- Chocolate
142- Homecoming
143- Incident On and Off a Mountain Road
144- Dreams in the Witch-House
N/A- Dance of the Dead

Monday October 29th -
145- Dog Soldiers * - 6/10 - If you can totally check your brain at the door, this is a pretty good action horror film, especially for a made for TV movie. Huge plot holes and some stupid moments, but decent dialogue and character growth.
146- 30 Days of Night * - 8/10 - A great adaptation of a comic book. If anyone hasn't seen this in the theaters yet, I highly recommend it. And there are free tickets for it inside certain horror DVDs at CC, some as low as $4.99.
147- Saw IV * - 6/10 - Maybe I should have watched part 3 before I saw this, but I figured I had a free ticket and I wanted to see it for the challenge. I wasn't a huge fan of the first two, but I did like how are four are tied together.
148- The Flesh Eaters * - 5.5/10 - I quite enjoyed this 1964 flick. It has some weak acting and bad dialogue, but some interesting ideas. Apparently, there is a DVD out or forthcoming with some deleted scenes and a commentary. I'll probably buy it someday.

Tuesday October 30th -
149- Trilogy of Terror - 7.5/10 - Like many, I really love the third segment. I watched this on TV when it originally aired I imagine, and it freaked out my sister and I quite a bit. This film is a big part of the reason why horror became my favorite genre I imagine. Haven't bought the DVD upgrade yet, anyone else?
150- The Thing - 10/10 - Saved one of my top ten films of all time for the number 150 spot. What a fantastic opening sequence! It really gets you ready for something different.
151- Phantasm - 7/10 - I was too young to see this in the theaters when it came out, at least according to my parents. I loved the trailers and so looked forward to seeing it on home video that I think I built it up it up so much in my mind that I was bound to be disappointed by it. I still find it quite fun, and will buy the sequels once they hit the bargain bin.
152- Pitch Black - 8.5/10 - The sequel was such a let down.
153- Hellboy Animated: Sword of Storms * - 6/10 - Meh.

Wednesday October 31st -
154- Halloween (extended TV version) - 8.5/10 - It's going to be difficult to slog thru all the sequels today, as I hear some of them are awful.
155- Halloween II - 6.5/10 - I love that it continues immediately after the original. I work in a hospital, so I was a bit bothered by the complete lack of personnel staffing what looked like a 100+ bed facility. But overall, pretty decent for a sequel and a few nice scares.
156- Halloween III: Season of the Witch * - 6.5/10 - If you go into this knowing that it has nothing to do with the Michael Myers Halloweens, it is not that bad of a horror film.
157- Halloween: A Cut Above the Rest * - 8/10 - Documentary.
158- Halloween IV: The Return of Michael Myers * - 6/10 - Not as bad as I feared.
159- Halloween V: The Revenge of Michael Myers * - 3/10 - Pretty weak.
N/A- It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown - 8/10 - A holiday tradition that originally aired just after I was born.
160- Halloween VI: The Curse of Michael Myers * - 3/10 - I hear the producer's cut is better, but I can't imagine it being enough to make it an annual watch for me.
161- Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later - 7.5/10 - The scene where Laurie and Michael reunite thru the window is a classic. After a couple of weak efforts the Halloween franchise is back on track!
162- Halloween: Resurrection * - 2/10 - They should have stopped with H20. This movie was awful, as was the Zombie remake.
N/A- Halloween: 25 Years of Terror * - ?/10 - Documentary. Started this last night, but fell asleep, so it won't count for this year.

Quote:
Unlike last year where I carefully considered every movie I watched so as to hit the classics and have a list representational of my taste, this year I went more or less at random. I chose movies on the criteria of what was available, what I was in the mood for, what I hadn't seen before, etc. Now, on the 27th day of the challenge, I decided to check my list against the Horror Yahtzee and see how I did without making the least bit of effort towards it. I also might use the list to see what I might hit in the last few days of the contest. I think I did pretty good hitting the Yahtzee blindly.

Easy Goal: 31. More Realistic Goal: 60. My Shoot for the Stars Goal (if I get off to a good start & things fall into place): 100

October 1
1. Halloween...The Happy Haunting of America (uninspiring...but I used a 'Redbox' free coupon that was expiring)
2. Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (another 'Redbox' freebie--was ok, but I won't be buying it)
3. Gremlins (listened to the commentary - maybe I'd known but forgotten that Howie Mandel was the voice of Gizmo)

October 2
4. Critters (Surprised to learn as I stuck this DVD in that it's rated PG)
5. Cujo (I'll have to keep an eye out for a deal on the new edition that's out)

October 3
6. Psycho (At one point in my life, I had watched the sequels countless time before I initially viewed the original classic about 8-9 years ago. Count me as one of the folks shocked to discover the infamous shower scene taking place early in the film and knocking out the central character)
7. Psycho II (This sequel was pretty good -- enjoyed the performances of all the characters, but Anthony Perkins is tremendous as Norman Bates. I believe it's his role that allows the Psycho sequels to work, while the remake couldn't overcome his absence.)
8. Tremors (We interrupt this Psycho run... I've seen bits and pieces of this one over the years on cable, but this is the first time to watch it from beginning to end. Fun flick with a great ensemble cast!)

October 4
9. Psycho III (Not as good as the 1st sequel, but I still marvel at Mr. Perkins portrayal of Norman. Although you feel sorry for him in part II, there's little doubt he's gone mad in this one. But then again, we all go a little mad sometimes.)
10. Psycho IV: The Beginning (I enjoyed this movie, though not as much as the one before it, and the one before it, and the one... Interesting side note: Today is my mother's birthday--purely coincidental I finished the Psycho films centering on the twisted mother/son relationship)
11. Tremors 2: Aftershocks (You know, I liked this one better than the original. Didn't really miss Kevin Bacon's character at all. Pleasantly surprised.)

October 5
12. Tremors 3: Back to Perfection (I missed Fred Ward! Has anyone else uttered those words before? I couldn't get into this movie, especially after the creatures took to the air. Now, do I finish this quadrilogy now or later?)
13. Tremors 4: The Legend Begins (One thought kept going through my head as I watched...I'm glad there's not a Tremors 5, at least not that I'm aware of)
14. Alien (Watched the Director's Cut with commentary - very enjoyable)

October 6
**Sadly, couldn't find the time to fit in a single movie...will have to be playing catch up from here on out.

October 7
15. Alien 3 (Skipped Aliens since I don't own a copy yet and saw it recently anyway....this film is obviously not as good as the first 2, but could you really expect it to live up to the standards set before it?)
16. Alien: Resurrection (Much better than I anticipated...I had read some critical reviews)
17. Jaws (Funny thing: Watching this movie makes me think of a very forgettable movie--The Master of Disguise. Dana Carvey's spot on portrayal of Quint is the only thing I remember from that one)

October 8
18. The Fog (To this day if I come across a fog, I'll utter the words: "The Fog returns to Antonio Bay." -- whether I'm with someone or by myself)
19 Jaws 2 (Watching Jaws and this sequel nearly back-to-back caused me to notice how many different folks they had in the original cast that they brought back in part 2.)

October 9
20. Jaws 3 (I enjoyed this for what it was, a cheesy movie for sure. As I watched it, I couldn't help but think it was more like watching an 'Airplane!' movie than a 'Jaws' film)
21. I Know What You Did Last Summer (I started watching the filmmaker commentary but couldn't stand the director's accent after 15 minutes..went back and watched the movie w/o the commentary)

October 10
22. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (Man, there is more screaming taking place in this movie than in any other that I can remember)

October 11
23. It (Not the best film to watch for the challenge because of its length. Watched with commentary. Pennywise--one of the great horror 'villains.')
24. Christine (Viewed with commentary by John Carpenter & Keith Gordon...enjoyable...I've never read the book, I may have to check that out.)

October 12
25. I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer (I'll always...remember that I have the Challenge to thank for spending time with this one)
26. The Hills Have Eyes (1977) (I'm nearly certain this was the first horror movie I watched as a kid, it kicked off my love of the genre)
27. Friday the 13th (Starting this series on Fri. the 12th...no telling how many times I've watched each of these)

October 13
28. Friday the 13th, part 2 (And I never tire of 'em)
29. Twilight Zone: The Movie (The DVD release made me pull out my old VHS copy of this movie. I hadn't watched it since I bought it at a flea market years ago and hadn't see the movie in 15-20 years)

October 14
30. Friday the 13th, part 3 (Jason was still kind of new at this killing thing. 2 of his victims weren't fully dead after he was through with them)
31. Friday the 13th, part 4: The Final Chapter (You have to kind of ignore holes in the plot...if you do, they're a lot of fun)

October 15
32. Poltergeist (So many memorable lines/scenes from this classic)
33. Friday the 13th, part 5: A New Beginning (Somewhat goofy...I can remember seeing this in a theater)
34. Friday the 13th, part 6: Jason Lives (...and now he's crossed the line from human to monster/unstoppable force)

October 16
35. King Kong (1933) (I liked it...I can see why it's a classic, however the old b&w movies aren't way up on my list of most enjoyable films)
36. Friday the 13th, part 7: The New Blood (been listening to some of the commentaries available on a few of the F13th DVDs. This one had Kane Hodder who played Jason...kind of scary listening to him, you can tell how much he really enjoys playing Jason. I think Mr. Hodder is an immediate suspect if anyone ever goes missing in his town)
37. Friday the 13th, part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan (what I never understood: Jason has always killed everyone in his path, but strolls through all kinds of public places passing people by...)

October 17 *Tonight enters a stretch of a few days when I can manage to fit in more movies than usual...it's now or never if I want to reach 100.
38. Jason Goes To Hell (It's not horrible, but I remember my initial dismay watching years ago and learning Jason is absent for most of the movie)
39. Jason X (Thought this was a step up from JGTH for the reason mentioned above)
40. Freddy vs. Jason (I can recall how excited I was to see this in theater)
41. Boogeyman: The Killer Compilation (For some reason when I bought this, I was hoping it was more of a documentry than a collection of video clips)

October 18
42. Cape Fear (1991) (I haven't seen the original but it's hard to imagine a better performance than DeNiro's)
43. Children of the Corn (Malachi & Isaac still give me the eebie-jeebies)
44. Nightmare on Elm Street (the original was such a unique concept)
45. Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (Some actors steer clear of the horror genre. Robert Englund embraces it)
46. Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (Believe this is my favorite of the NOES sequels)
47. Swamp Thing (I've seen this several times before, but on the heels of watching all the Friday the 13th films, I couldn't get over how much this sounded like a F13th film...Manfredini did the music to both)

October 19
48. Nightmare on Elm Street 4: Dream Master (Some of the most memorable deaths in the series...the 'roach motel' comes to mind.)
49. Nightmare on Elm Street 5: Dream Child (The series really started going downhill fast)
50. Saw (Switched to this for #50--You can look at my list and realize I grew up with 80's horror. I found Saw to be the best of newer horror by far)
51. Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (I'm holding on remembering that the actual final NOES wasn't too bad)
52. Wes Craven's New Nightmare (Put the previous couple of sequels to shame)

October 20
53. Open House (Pretty cheesy stuff)
54. Urban Legend (Enjoyed this one, I'm going to avoid the sequels...don't recall being too impressed with them a few years back)
55. Scream (enjoyable to watch again and pick up on horror movie references you missed the 1st time around)
56. Scream 2 (According to imdb--Matthew Lillard, who was killed in the original Scream had an uncredited role in this one?)
57. Hell Night (Don't hear this one talked about much, but I think it's pretty good)
58. Lake Placid (Nice film made all the more enjoyable knowing I got the DVD for free from a Kellogg's cereal mail-in promotion)
59. Silent Night, Deadly Night (As mentioned in another thread, this movie brings about memories of the 80's VHS rental stores...)
60. Silent Night, Deadly Night, part 2 (As dumb as I remember it)

October 21
61. Terror Train (One of my favorites...neat concept to have the killer changing costumes)
62. Slumber Party Massacre (A lot of slasher movies reveal a motivation of sorts for the killer...this movie didn't do that--he's just a psychopath)
63. Ants (This one was fun!)

October 22
64. Tarantulas: The Deadly Cargo (Was hoping this would be as good as Ants, but didn't measure up)
65. Silence of the Lambs (What a classic--I don't view it as purely 'horror' but I'm going to have to throw a few of these types in to get to 100. I've checked imdb/dvdspot and other places and found horror listed as a sub-genre)
66. Hannibal (2nd time viewing. I recall not liking this too much the first time, much better time time around)

October 23
67. Red Dragon (Great movie. Anthony Hopkins is amazing. I think if I saw him in public, I couldn't approach him because of fear)
68. Manhunter (Not bad...the ending not as good as Red Dragon especially with the 80's music playing)
69. Secret Window (Another great job in casting with Johnny Depp)

October 24
70. Misery (Something that disturbs me: I have a neighbor who reminds me of Annie...looks, mannerisms, everything. I thought of it before I started watching and I couldn't believe the resemblance as I continued the movie...I may need to move.)
71. Panic Room (Enjoyable...I must point out that I'm starting to feel the effects of the sleep I'm losing in my quest for 100...still having fun, but reminding myself just a week more to go)
72. The Funhouse (Lots of good scares here. Carnivals have always been creepy.)

October 25
73. Halloween - Extended Edition (Don't believe I'd watched this cut since viewing it on tv as a kid)

October 26
74. Winnie the Pooh: Frankenpooh/Spookable Pooh (*Wild Card...and yes, I watched this with my kids)

October 27
75. Halloween II (I know I've seen this a dozen or more times, but there were scenes from this DVD version I had never seen before. Loved this sequel for the way it happened immediately following the original. Did you know Dana Carvey has a credit in this one? More amazing it's my 2nd Dana Carvey reference in this horror thread...)
76. Creature from the Black Lagoon (lots of fun, I'll probably be watching a lot more b&w classics in coming days)
77. The Creature Walks Among Us (It'll be me my least favorite in the Creature Legacy Series, but not bad)
78. Revenge of the Creature (accidentally watched these out of order...Clint Eastwood makes his debut!)
79. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (made the mistake of watching this with actor's commentary...it was a yawner)

October 28
80. The Dead Zone (Had never seen this...though I had seen the Christopher Walken bits on SNL)

October 29
81. The Birds (Had never seen...found it to be a little 'slower' than I would have liked
82. Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (with commentary...Danielle Harris was still horrible--it seems she doesn't remember any details about the film...but another actor and the director made it bearable)
83. Pet Sematary (Seeing Fred Gwynne again was cool)
84. Silver Bullet (I seem to recall watching this for the first time at a drive-in. It was the lesser known flick on a double feature, liked it then and still do)
85. The Sixth Sense (Have only seen it once before, the 2nd time is a whole new perspective)

October 30
86. Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (One of these days, I'll get my hands on the producer's cut and check that out)
87. My Bloody Valentine (Another favorite from years ago. I've never gone down a mine shaft since...of course I'd never been in one before as well)
88. Frankenweenie (*Wild Card - my daughter wanted to watch it again immediately so thumbs up from me)
89. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (*Wild Card - I love the Peanuts 'Theme' music)
90. Shock! (Part of a Vincent Price double feature I picked up from the library in my horror quest)
91. The Bat (the 2nd part of the Price double feature..both weren't bad, probably liked Shock a little better)

October 31
92. Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (Most folks dislike this one. Truthfully, I've enjoyed all the Halloween movies)
93. The Lost Boys (I'm gonna have to re-visit this one after the challenge. I watched in a groggy, sleep-deprived state)
94. Halloween: Resurrection (I did like all the Halloween movies, although Busta Rhymes tried to ruin this one for me...it's absurd to think he comes out ahead in a battle with Michael)
95. Halloween: 25 Years of Terror (Rare that I pick up a title as a 'new release' but I had to have this one...well worth it)
96. Graveyard Shift (Finished my Stephen King boxset. Obviously I didn't save the best for last...)

Wondering how I would pull this off and came home to find the Dracula Legacy Series in my mailbox...perfect timing!
97. Dracula
98. Dracula's Daughter
99. Son of Dracula
100. House of Dracula

I love horror movies, but it may be a few months before I can watch another one!

1st - 1. Night of the Living Dead - ****/***** Started the Challenge off right with this classic. Had a bit of trouble watching it on my morning ferry as a college student sat across from me. Ended up stoping the flick and talking to her for most of the ride. Didn't get a number or closer to reaching my personal goal of 31 films.
Finished Night on the ferry ride home. I hadn't seen it since I was 15 or so and it holds up well. Not as good as Dawn or Day IMHO but still a great film.
2nd thru the 5th - A combination of marajuana, depression, and baseball made me lose focus. Never again!
6th - 2. 1408 ****/***** REALLY enjoyed this thriller from a few months ago even though I'm pissed that Sam Jackson was only in the thing for 10 minutes at most and still ended up on the cover of the box.
