It's in print, and Netflix carries it.

It's still in print - Anchor Bay puts it out. It can be picked up for under $10.

I tried to play this for my 3 year old last year and she showed no interest in it. Maybe this year, since she'll be 4, she'll like it.

Mad Monster Party? is my traditional Halloween send off on the 31st, at least for the last several years. It has just the right touches of humor and songs (well, maybe too much of that Phyllis Diller song), is populated with iconic horror figures, and hey it's stop motion animation! A good double feature with The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Darkgod 09-03-08 07:20 PM

Sounds awesome Chad,and I vote for C.

One suggestion. With the prizes... eliminate the prize for most entrees. Keep the everyone over a hundred, as well as the most inpressive list. But if you take away that one, you'll eliminate people arguing(myself included) over peopls list featuring 40 titles in one night.

As I said though, thanks, and no matter what the chopice im still gonna have fun with this.

Trevor 09-03-08 07:32 PM

I agree. There should be absolutely no incentive for anyone to go over 100. That would just encourage cheating, or the perception of cheating, arguing, and people getting less enjoyment out of the whole process.

There is no winner in these challenges, just participants.

Given the endurance it takes, perhaps:
There is no winner in these challenges, just survivors!

^ I'll shed some light on the prize situation soon.

Si. I discovered it just over 3 years ago, but already it's essential viewing for me.

They definitely count. Hocus Pocus is another fairly popular title around here. Of course most are somewhat reluctant to actually admit to that. :D

RobCA 09-03-08 11:56 PM

I'm in. I've already been buying some Universal Monster and Hammer Horror movies in preparation.

riotinmyskull 09-04-08 07:19 AM

can i go ahead and get a ruling on THE HAPPENING as being a horror movie or not. i'm not looking for anyone's opinion on the movie (i've seen it) just whether or not it will be considered for this challenge.

Yeah, it wouldn't be Halloween without a viewing of Young Frankenstein (and Shaun of the Dead, for that matter).

Wow, I haven't thought about Mad Monster Party since I was a kid. Thanks, it will definitely be on my list!

I don't see why not. Even though the IMDB lists its genre as being only Drama & Mystery, I've heard the terms "horror suspense" and "apocalyptic horror film" thrown around quite a bit. And feel free to disagree as I haven't actually seen it myself.

Darkgod 09-04-08 08:31 PM

I finally checked out those open domain movies and IM pretty shocked that Deep red is one. Good little flick.

LickTheABCs 09-04-08 08:47 PM

Count me in. Fo' sho'.

Chad 09-04-08 09:17 PM

Oh, come on already! My head is about to explode here! You can't tell me that after 3 days of existence no one here has gotten the reference to a certain entertainment program ...on the first page... of this thread?? It's blatantly obvious people! :brickwl2:

What is this reference in question and where exactly does it comes from? Be specific.

It's literally jumping off the page and saying "Pick me, I'm here for a reason! I have a purpose"! as we speak!

RobCA 09-04-08 09:44 PM

Isn't it possible some folks got the reference, and just didn't mention it?

Not me, I have no idea what you're talking about. Just sayin' is all. :)

Rob

NoirFan 09-04-08 09:52 PM

I have no idea what you're talking about either, but I was pleased to see Coffin Joe chillin' in the top banner.

Yeah, I suppose that's possible. I'm going to watch "Elevator to the Gallows" now and check back afterwards before hitting the hay. Surely by then.....

Thanks. I was going for an International feel this year.

Definitely gonna break out the coffin next month and catch the first two. :up:

No Awakening of the Beast? One of the most bizarre films of the late 60's, and that's saying something. Have you seen any of the interview featurettes? Jose Mojica Marins is still sporting the insanely long fingernails. That coffin is a serious collectors item now - the lowest price edition on Amazon is $128.67!

Chad 09-05-08 12:36 AM

Still no clues as to what the reference is. :( Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

Bizarre is definitely the word. I'll probably watch it separate from the others since it doesn't follow the same storyline.


Apparently he was saving the fingernails for "Embodiment of Evil":


<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/xzW8rO3Iz6k&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/xzW8rO3Iz6k&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

Embodiment of Evil (Original title: Encarnação do Demônio) is a 2008 Brazilian horror film by Brazilian film director José Mojica Marins. Marins is also known by his alter ego Zé do Caixão (Eng: Coffin Joe). It is the third installment of his Coffin Joe trilogy. It is preceded by At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul (1963) and This Night I Will Possess Your Corpse (1967).

I'd heard talk about a new one, but had absolutely no idea it was coming out this year!

If I don't make it there, I can always watch my DVD. :)

Really? Where? I live in Chicago as well.

I Googled it, but since I've never seen that show, I'll leave it for someone else.

Unless there's some kind of prize involved. :)

The Wilmette Theatre is having a family friendly party and Mad Monster Party is the film that is playing. I asked and they are indeed showing the DVD, not a 35mm print. Apparently, the distributer didn't have one available.

I'll probably still check it out.
