Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 7th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (Oct 1-31) P

Question: What would last nights episode of 'American Horror Story' count as?

It ran for 71 minutes, which is more closer to the half entry, but then again I'm not actually sure if the show is more along the mini-series category, which would be a full entry

By the way, screw all of you with the multitude of subset choices that I don't own. I just signed up for Netflix again, something I had sworn to never do.

That said, Dead & Buried is very good so far.

Redbox has replaced almost all B&M video rental stores here. I really miss Video Vault; they had everything. So far, I either own or have "acquired" the 31 day subset flicks.

I've done that for a few obscure things in the past, but my paranoia is increasing and I figured I'd give Netflix one more month of my money.

I know the links are at the beginning of the thread, but here are the current subset film discussions going on in the Reviews subforum. Please join us if you've ever watched these films before.

Just watched 'High Lane' on Netflix streaming and recommend this is if you like movies along the lines of 'Wrong Turn'. It's a Croatian movie, but dubbed (very well) in English and stays pretty tense for the entire 90 minutes.

IMO definitely one of the better indie horror movies of the last couple of years

Finished watching The Black Cat last night, and loved it! It's the first movie I've seen with Karloff and Lugosi sharing the screen, and those two play off each other really well.

Watched Murders in the Rue Morgue after, but didn't enjoy that one as much. Still, it has its charm.

I'll be watching Dead & Buried when I wake up tomorrow, my first viewing of the Blu. A highly underrated movie imo.
Oh yeah, seems that everyone I talk to adores it too. I'm not a fan of most of the recent French horror either. The only other one that I have any affinity for is Ils, though it's a good few steps below HT and Martyrs.

Dead & Buried is definitely underrated. It never fails to get under my skin, that's for sure.

Christ, I forgot how badly recast the character Henry Kane was in Poltergeist III.

First on the agenda today, (Stephen King's) Pet Sematary (1989)! It's been about 13 years since I saw it last, caught it on one of the cable movie channels back then - now I have the DVD.

Only got in three movies last night which was a step down from the pace I had been keeping. Hoping today will get back up to speed.

We plan on going through all the Universal Monsters flicks that I either haven't seen or only saw parts of so I can't say I saw the whole thing. Which leaves everything but Lugosi's original Dracula and the first Invisible Man. My son's taken an interest in what we've been watching lately so I'm hoping these will be good for him.

I'm looking forward to his entry in The Theater Bizarre. I've heard mixed reviews but I'll check it out regardless being I'm a sucker for anthologies.

I used it along with Sunday's episode of Dexter as one entry. The show is meant to be a regular series, not a mini-series. If you are watching some short films, trailers or 30-minute programs, those could be used to achieve the 2-hour time needed for an entry rather than another 1-hour show.

As for the show itself, I guess I liked it. As I said in the show's thread in TV Talk, I wonder how the show will be able to sustain itself over multiple seasons. There's usually a point in a haunted house movie where you wonder why the people just don't leave. How will they make it so that we aren't asking those questions in the second season? Anyway, I think it has potential, and it's nice to see a horror TV show on the air. I'll support it.

Fatigue has been setting in a little bit for me, too. I just keep telling myself to get to Friday. Once I get to Friday, I'll have company over, which will energize me a little bit, and then I'll have the weekend to binge on horror. I'm hoping to get in at least two today. Considering giving the original The Toolbox Murders a spin tonight for today's theme because I was underwhelmed with it the first time. Dead and Buried is tempting, though.

Wow, that is pretty awesome. I know over the years we have had posters make some really great looking lists (both here and in the Exploitation Challenge)

Just finished watching The Diabolical Doctor Z. Light on a lot of things Jess Franco, but straight forward enough to be enjoyable.

My busy work/class week ends at 3pm today, so I can't wait to dig back into more films after

You make me so jealous. The earliest I can get started during the week is around 8 p.m., but it's usually more like 8:30 or 9. That has really affected my numbers during the week this year. I didn't start this current job until the day after last year's challenge, so this is my first challenge while working here.

Thursdays are the only work/class day where I get off early. The rest of the week I usually get home around 6pm and then have to take care of everything not Horror related

I don't have work Fridays, so I can dedicate it pretty much all to movies assume my friends don't want to hang out or I'm caught up on all work/school related stuff.

I noticed that you, myself and a good handful of people here had mentioned new jobs or being more busy than they were during last year's Challenge. Real life = Stupid!

Nice - I persuaded my professor to let us screen The Funhouse for my horror class tomorrow as a double-bill with Texas Chainsaw Massacre, so that's another title to add to my list! Our classroom has a massive projector screen, so it's always a treat watching Blu-rays on it.

There's a school that has a HORROR class? Jealous!

Sad day yesterday. Got home late from work and was tired thanks to the rain. Watched American Horror Story which I'm not going to count right now and fell asleep watching the other half of the Ring I never got to the other night. Day 3 and I better finish the Ring. That movie just puts me to sleep for some reason.

BTW:
Wednesday, October 5
TCM GUEST PROGRAMMER: JOHN CARPENTER
8:00 PM - The Thing From Another World (1951) 87 min
9:45 PM - It! They Terror From Beyond Space (1958) 69 min
11:00 PM - The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) 83 min

I am GUESSING it was supposed to be on TCM, Turner Classic Movies. Did ANYONE see this? When I looked on my guide it did not show those films last night. HUGE disappointment as I wanted to DVR the Thing and compare it to the Carpenter movie.

Yeah, caught everything except his opening intro to Rio Bravo. In a nutshell he discussed the filmography of Howard Hawks and the influence on his work, his love for westerns, growing up in the baby boomer generation and James Bernard's unique approach to scoring his films, which is singing out the title. It was informative, but didn't really cover any new territory he hasn't already in his commentaries.

EDIT: Misread your post.

Does anyone know if the upcoming (next week) Synapse release 'South of Heaven' is a horror film at all? I'm on my phone and can't get a valid answer on it via searching.

Can anyone suggest Uncle Sam or Vampyres? They're the only Blue Underground blu-rays I haven't seen in any format, worth picking up?

I finally bought Basket Case 2 after going my entire life without seeing and being a big fan of the first since middle school, I've always wanted to check it out, just never got the chance. now I just have to wait for Synapse to release the 3rd on blu-ray to finally see that.
