Would Never Sleep Again, a 4 hour documentary, only count as one entry or is there a possibility of getting it to count as 2, based on the length?

I think I asked the same question last year and was told it only counted as one entry.

Alright, settling down to some left-over Thanksgiving dinner and heading into the third part of a marathon day of flicks. Cotninuing with today's comedy theme (already watched Hocus Pocus, Terror toons and The Dog That Saved Halloween) I am capping it with Tales From The Darkside (The Movie) and Spring Break Massacre.

Yeah, when I watched it it only counted as one. I suppose this works bot ways, right. You can watch four 60min flicks and all would count as separate entries. So, I'd watch Never Sleep Again and catch up with some old 40s classics.

Thoroughly enjoying the challenge this year and don't really think I've seen a totally abysmal film yet.

Watched '30 Days of Hell' the other day so am settling down to watch 'The Devils Rejects' so I can appreciate it some more after watching the documentary.

i booked off the last weekend of the month and at the rate I'm going I should hopefully hit the century for the first time ever

I've never actually seen it, so I'll definitely track down a copy.

Allow me to introduce you to Terror Toons, my friend.

Very worth it. Though in this rare instance where the remake outdoes the original the '51 version is still quite good.

Wow, The Amityville Horror (1979) had one of the lamest endings I've ever seen.
Spoiler:
It sure was gripping watching Brolin go back to get his dog! Don't the houses usually collapse or explode at the end of these kind of films?
Did Don Rickles' son play the younger priest? He was a dead ringer, both physically and vocally. A pretty pointless movie overall - there wasn't a single memorable sequence, and
Spoiler:
other than in the flashback, no one was even killed. Hell, no one was even put in any actual danger!
A typical AIP snoozefest.

I watched that one Friday for the Theme Night. I'd only seen his Planet of Vampires prior to that viewing. Black Sabbath was so good I'm very much anticipating watching the rest of the films in the Bava 1 set and may squeeze in I Vampiri later tonight. It's another "never seen" film for me.

Can I suggest we move the Apocalyptic Horror theme night to October 21st? This is the day that Harold Camping now predicts our world will end: http://articles.businessinsider.com/...harold-camping You know, remember that guy from earlier this year?

I think it'd be great to watch these types of flicks on a day predicted to be the end of days. I mean, hey, when we gonna' get that chance again during the contest run?

Anyone been watching Psychoville on Fearnet? I managed to get through the first two episodes and i'm not very happy with it. Does it get any better than that? I need two more episodes to equal 1 viewing but I don't know if I can do it. I

Okay, got most of everything done that I needed for a while. I figure if I can get in about ten movies a day for the next three days, I can get back on previous pace. Something tells me that won't happen, but I'm going to try my damnedest.

Anyone on here go to live horror attractions (e.g. haunted houses) or do you just watch movies?
With some of the numbers I see on the list thread, I wonder if some of you ever go outside...
Love those films, let me know what you think. And I went to Universal in Hollywood and it was pretty good. Wish I went with more girls, though, so the employees would chase us and be more scared. And yeah, I see some people have racked in about 100 films already and I wonder if this is all they do lol.

New updates in the blog for days 14 and 15. Including possibly the worst movie I've ever seen Slaughtered Vomit Dolls.

Celluloid Terror

And to add to the Bava discussion - the boxsets are great for the most part. Each volume has a stinker in it though. He made some great movies, really a legend for horror. Black Sabbath and Black Sunday are exceptional.

I have been laughing non-stop at your part about "Slaughtered Vomit Dolls." It actually MADE me want to watch it. As I'm typing this, I'm still laughing.

I used to live in Tampa, tried to go every year to Halloween Horror Nights at Busch Gardens and went to Horror Nights at Universal Studios a number of times. It was even better than watching Horror movies on TV .

Which title didn't you like on the first set? The Girl Who Knew Too Much is a tad hokey at times, but it's a decent film. Going in, I was expecting Knives of the Avenger to be a hammy sword-and-sandal type programmer, but I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was.

Seriously, don't. I'm glad you got some enjoyment out of the blog post but you won't get that out of the movie.

KotA was the one in set 1... To be fair I haven't watched it in years so it isn't the freshest in my mind. It wasn't awful, but not up to par with the others. I hated Roy Colt & Winchester Jack on the 2nd box. I love spaghetti westerns but couldn't take that one.

Carpenter does a commentary on the R2 disc, but for some reason they paired his track with an unrestored version, which is inexplicably included (along with a colorized version!) and looks terrible. The track is a decent one, but for a guy who is known for his extensive love for and knowledge of Hawks, there are a lot of silent gaps.

Yeah, sure. Can't believe I missed that little doozy. Unless anyone objects to switching Night of the Comet with The Stepfather on the subset list.

That's awesome.

I'll never understand that film's status as a genre classic.

Really? I thought this one was snoozer with no real scares for me. Grave Encounters, which I watched right before it, was awesome, though.
