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

So I watched Happy Birthday to Me for the first time. And it was one of the more confusing films I've ever seen. I must have blacked out during a quarter of it... Doesn't seem like the kind of film that should have thrown me for such a loop. Cool kills, though.

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

So tonight I was browsing through some old family photos and came across a picture of myself in a horribly cheap Underdog costume from 1980. I couldn't resist, so I changed my list thread photo to feature it. Tonight's Reds game went late, so I've only got an hour left to get going with something for today (though I did already get in "Bram Stoker's Dracula" earlier so I'm not feeling behind.

Thanks! I was hoping it might amuse someone else. Thoughts about Count Dracula and His Vampire Bride are forthcoming, but in the meantime if you'll indulge my narcissism, I dashed off a Dracula sketch earlier this evening and thought I'd share. Spoiler'd for size:

I was going to watch House on Haunted Hill tonight originally, but then I saw Horror of Dracula was on TCM and I wanted to finally see that. I also had a very busy day,so I was pretty tired when the movie aired.

I thought the film was ok, sort of interesting but I was tired and couldn't get too caught up in it. It didn't blow me away or anything. I then wound up watching The Brides of Dracula afterwords despite not planning to originally. But the opening scene just pulled me in and I wound up watching the entire thing and was slightly more awake than during the first film. It seemed a little more 'lively' compared to the first film and a bit more interesting I guess. It was pretty entertaining overall and I'm glad I watched it.

I'm to tired to watch anything else tonight,so I might save House on Haunted Hill for tomorrow or something.

I went to see Hatchet 2 tonight- pretty much loved it. If you were a fan of the first you'll certainly like the sequel.

Is it first correct answer gets it? Or leave it open for a little while and pick a winner from the correct answers?

Decided to abandon the daily film subset and the theme subset; we just don't have enough in our library for the former and we decided we'd rather have the flexibility to squeeze in whatever we can since the Reds are actually gonna be playing in the postseason this year, which will cut into our participation time. We just finished Nightmare Man from the After Dark Horror Fest, and we both loved it. Great self-aware humor, and some great suspense. (At least for me, since I have had a lifelong recurring nightmare of being in a house somewhere, stalked from the outside by someone I can't see.)

I managed to fit three in today, was hoping to do one more, but getting too tired.

I managed to catch Let Me In, but didn't really like it nearly as much as the original.

For the checklist, can one film be used to mark more than one category?

Kicked things off with The Manitou, in honor of Tony Curtis. Some decent scenes, but characters are constantly doing things no person in their right mind would ever fathom. I'm looking at you, orderly, who not only finds it perfectly fine to sit next to the demonic medicine man and his dead, skinned alive friend, but also to take a nap next to them. It just blew my frakking mind.

I was going to completely ignore the themes, they really should sync with the daily films, but read your post at about 11pm and decided what the heck, and put in a Hammer title. Paranoiac (1963) was better than I expected, could be my favorite Hammer title so far.

I am, but will be at work. Will likely only be able to stream through my iPhone here, doubt that works with parties.

Not sure if it's been asked, but does Grindhouse count as one movie or two?

Grindhouse is 1 movie in my mind. An anthology movie. Plus only one of its parts is horror anyways. I still don't understand people calling Death Proof a horror movie :/


Quick question that I'm not sure has been answered before- I just got the Corman blu of Forbidden World which has the theatrical cut and the (from what I hear) pretty different director's cut called Mutant would I be able to count both of these as entries?

because the first half of death proof is essentially a slasher movie...

I consider it a thriller honestly. That said, I'd still count Grindhouse for the challenge and count it as 1 movie. If you were to watch them separate I'd say 2 but Grindhouse itself is a single movie.

Sidenote- I cannot wait until next week where I can finally see the theatrical cut again!

Grindhouse was a pastiche on double features. It is two movies. They are both feature length, even the theatrical versions. QT said he considers his to be tone-wise, a slasher film. It's about a deranged stuntman who stalks and kills women.

Imdb says "Two full length feature horror movies written by Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez put together as a two film feature." Last year I counted both Grindhouse features seperately and no one complained.

I definitely won't complain about it, and if others are counting them separately I shamlessly will as well haha. I just always consider Grindhouse to be a single movie when under that title. They can broken down into separate movies and still work though. Bottom line is that they are fun movies to watch

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

I'm already off to a rocky start. I started watching horror movies the last week in September. I was able to squeeze in 8 movies including seeing The Exorcist at Regal Cinemas. I unforunately broke my streak yesterday by using my valuble horror movie time watching to see The Social Network with a group of friends. I tried to squeeze in a horror movie when I got home, but I was too tired to enjoy it. I'm not watching another non-horror movie until November!
