I planned on doing something like that this year... nowhere near the level of production you have. Good watches.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 6th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/3

Having participated in the August Animation Challenge and the September Criterion Challenge, I'm steering clear of the horror challenge. Not my favorite genre. And I just looked over the checklist. Man, that's grueling. Were there even any horror films made in the 1890s??? And, the idea of having to sit through a Debbie Rochon or Linnea Quigley movie...

But it's got far more participants than either of the two previous challenges. Good luck, guys. Don't be surprised if you have a lot of bad dreams this month. (That should be a whole separate thread.) But I'll find an old classic or two in my collection from the Universal or Val Lewton days to watch for moral support.

Just a quick question here. I picked up Monster House among a few other movies, horror movies for the challenge today at a local convenience store and was wondering. I planned to use a wild card for that, is that correct?

I've never seen it but I feel like it could fall under the "children's horror" section

This thread is obvious not the place you you then as Ms. Quigley is one of our queens.

I think it should count without using a wildcard. I second SethDLH's opinion of it being children's horror.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 6th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/3

Well, just like last last year I had a minor setback after my water heater sprang a leak. I was intending on getting a couple films in last night, but only managed a 56-minute doc (Zombiemania) and half of Neon Maniacs. Caught the other half this morning and really wish I hadn't.

Neon Maniacs. Why do they kill? Because they can. Why do they live under the Golden Gate bridge? Because they do. Why does
Spoiler:
water
kill them? Because it does.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 6th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/3

I got up real early this morning so I could get in one movie before work. I wanted something cheesy for that early in the morning so I popped in Death Curse of Tartu a very low budget offering from 1967 directed by William Grefe. That sure did the trick. Its paired on the DVD with Sting of Death also by Grefe which I plan on making the very last movie I watch for the challenge. It looks like that one features a jellyfish monster so that should fit right in on Halloween.

I get to leave work early today so once I get home I'm planning on a Hammer/Amicus marathon for today's theme starting with The Evil of Frankenstein and Dracula Has Risen From the Grave. For some reason I've become obsessed with the Theme Night thing and plan to watch at least one every day with frequent Theme Night Marathons on weekends.

And I noticed on the Coast to Coast AM web site today that scheduled for next Friday 10/08 is
In the first half, exploitation film director Herschell Gordon Lewis, "the Godfather of Gore," who made the very first "slasher/gore" movie-- Blood Feast, will talk about his movie career. Followed by Open Lines.

Wow. I haven't seen The Faculty in a while. Didn't realize Harry Knowles had a small part in it.

Stan Helsing turned out to be my first pick at midnight. Glad I got the terrible sh!t out of the way quickly At least Diora Baird provided some great eye candy. I much perfer her as a brunette.

I've started off with a handful of bad and mediocre movies so far. Luckily I'm going to see Hatchet 2 and I know I'll enjoy that one since I loved the first.

I started out trying to cram in some Criterion Collection discs coming off the Criterion Challenge and really enjoyed Haxan and Sisters... but I'm not sure sure about Flesh for Frankenstein.

I loved Hatchet for the Honeymoon so much, I just placed an order for a shit ton of Bava's horror films, can't wait to marathon them when they arrive.

I've got a stack of Hammer flicks ready, pizza on the way, and the beer is cold.... I'm pretty much set for the night.

I thought Flesh for Frankenstein was fine for a camp/sex horror movie; I didn't understand how it ever came to be selected for the Criterion Collection. I read Maurice Yacowan's essay on Criterion.com and it shed a lot of light on the context and meaning of the film. I'd definitely recommend that anyone viewing the film take the time to read that essay.

I checked out The Beyond, one of the greatest horror movies of all time. I have seen it ten times at least and it's just great each time - and I find out something new about the movie with each viewing. For example, I had no idea in the spider scene the name "Liza" is said randomly from no one in particular during the attack.

I did the same thing. Was looking for something on netflix I wouldn't mind falling asleep during and finishing today, unfortunately I stayed awake. Awful. Guess it's only up from there.

Woke up in the middle of the night and put on Pick Me Up, one of the last MoH episodes that I haven't seen, or don't remember watching if I have.

Just finishing up Diary of the Dead right now with Survival of the Dead on deck. I've been saving it for October, and really hoping it is better than what everyone else I know is saying. I like Land and Diary more than most of my friends, so we'll see...

Heading out to a haunted house an hour away with some friends for a radio station promotion that we have to do. Should be fun, but I could probably get in two more movies today if I didn't have to do that.

Any interest in a Netflix/Xbox 360 party tomorrow for Sisters, the movie of the day?

Maybe around 3 or 5pm PST?

I've been able to squeeze in 2 movies today. Humanoids From the Deep and My Bloody Valentine (1981) and I'm happy about that. Hooray for half days of work!

So happy that this has started

Going to try to watch a minimum of 31 films this year, starting out with all my Horror Blu-Rays that I have yet to watch.
