1960s - 1 (3.5%)

Opinions:
Best Movie of the Month - Halloween (1978) - I've watched this movie more times than I can count, but this latest viewing really helped me realize that this might be my favorite horror film of all-time, if not my favorite overall film of all-time. Every scene is classic.

Worst Movie of the Month - Area 407 (2012) - I didn't watch a lot of genuinely bad films this month, and that is echoed in this selection. It's not that this movie was terrible, it just wasn't very good. Since this is as bad as it gets, I'm quite thrilled with my month of movie watching.

Biggest Surprise of the Month - Pet Sematary (1989) - I've seen parts of this over the years - some parts many times, like the beginning - but I never realized how awesome this movie really is. I didn't expect to like it as much as I did on my first time sitting through the whole thing, but it's a gem. As I said in my review, it Fred Gwynne puts on one of the finest horror performances I've ever seen.

Biggest Disappointment of the Month - Grace (2009) - There's not much to say about this one other than the fact that it felt like a short film stretched into a full-length movie, which is exactly what it is. Just disappointing all around. Again, not terrible, just not good.

Most Surprising Stat of the Month - This has to be the fact that I didn't watch a single horror film from the 1990s. It's a decade of horror I am quite familiar with (and spent a great deal of time with in June during my Cinefessions Summer Screams Challenge), though, so that is probably why I didn't watch any of it here. A close second is the fact that I watched a whopping five (5) horror films on Blu-ray 3D. I really like my new 3D TV!

Most Disappointing Stat of the Month - It's not the fact that I didn't reach my goals of 31 movies, but rather the fact that I fell asleep during three movies that otherwise would have gotten me to the goal. It's not that those movies were bad, it's just that I was tired. Oh well. There's always next year!


My list is officially finalized. See you next year!

---

Reserved! Cannot wait. I ran a challenge similar to this on my website in June (which also included sci-fi films), and I did much better than I expected. My goal will be much lower this time around, and I am aiming to watch one horror film each day during October, so 31 films. Best of luck to everyone, and I can't wait to get started!

As the witching hour approaches, I think I might attempt something different this year and randomize what I watch each day as much as possible. I'm going to put together a list of 31 categories, one for each day of the challenge, and then pick one each day. I will watch what that category represents. It might be "violent horror", or "watch a classic you haven't seen before". I might even duplicate some so I get to watch more than one category during the challenge.

I'm excited to get started!

---

So I've decided to go this route (above), and have picked my 31 options, printed them out on a piece of paper, cut them out, folded them, and have them sitting in a bowl (well, it's actually a footstool that has a removable lid, but you get the idea). I do have a couple things in there multiple times (watch a favorite, watch a classic I haven't seen, and so on), but most are just in there one time.

Note that I can watch other horror films as I wish, but I am attempting to watch at least one from one of these categories every day. If I miss one day, I will watch from two categories the next day. The goal is to merely make it through all 31 category options. I will list and number any other horror films I watch, though.

To kick things off tonight, I had my girlfriend pick tonight's film category, which I will list below with the film.

Note: The challenge officially starts at 7:45 p.m. (30 minutes after the 7:15 sunset) on Sunday, September 30, 2012, and ends at dawn on November 1, 2012.

Re: The 8th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread



Movies

October 1
1)The Cabin in the Woods (2012, Blu-Ray) - A fun way to kick of the movie watching. If you know Joss Whedon's work you'll recognize his input on this film. Movie 4/5 Blu-Ray 4.5/5

October 2
2)The Woman in Black (2011, Blu-Ray) - An effective ghost story with a few good scares. From the "new" Hammer Studios. Movie 3/5 Disc 4/5

October 3
3)Dark Shadows (2012, PPVHD) - I rented this because of the relatively negative reviews. I found it to be fun and much better than expected. I'll definately pick up a copy for my library at some point. Movie 4/5

October 5
4)Dawn of the Dead (2004) (Blu-Ray) - Movie 4.5/5 Disc 4/5

5) The Fog (2005) (encoreHD) - Flawed, but not as bad as advertised. Movie 3/5

October 6
6) The Boogens (Blu-Ray) - A fun 80's monster B-Movie Movie 3/5 Disc 3.5/5

October 7
7)Twins of Evil (Blu-ray) - Another Hammer classic makes it to DVD/Blu-ray courtesy of Synapse films. Hammer fans will want this for their libraries. Movie 4/5 Disc 3.5/5

8)Day of the Dead (2008) (Blu-ray) - A flawed but fun movie as long as its not compared to the original. Movie 3/5 Disc 4/5

October 8
9)30 Days of Night (Blu-Ray) - A pretty accurate adaptation of a great graphic novel. Movie 4.5/5 Disc 5/5

October 9
10)30 Days of Night: Dark Days (Blu-Ray) - DTV sequal that follows Barrow survivor Stella to LA. Penned by the writer of the graphic novels Steven Niles. Movie 3.5/5 Disc 4/5

11)Werewolf: The Beast Among Us (Blu-Ray) - DTV Werewolf flick from Universal. Maybe the best movie you never heard of. Surprisingly entertaining with lots of nods to past Universal horror. Movie 4/5 Disc 4.5/5

October 10
12)The Raven (2012) (PPV HD) - John Cusak's performance makes this one worth a look. I actually rather enjoyed the moive until the last act. Great atmosphere that would make Hammer proud. Movie 3/5

October 11
13)Fright Night (2011) (Blu-Ray) - I really like this movie. Sure, its not "as good as" the original, but I still find it a lot of fun. I like what the film makers did to modernize the story. David Tennant is brilliant as Peter Vincent. Collin Ferral chews scenery as Jerry. Movie 4.5/5 Disc 4/5

14)The Crazies (2010) (Blu-Ray) - Another fantastic remake. In this case it surpasses the original (IMHO). Movie 5/5 Disc 4.5/5

October 12
15)Friday the 13th Part 2 (Blu-Ray) - "Hillbilly" Jason before the hockey mask. Still one of my favorites from the series. Movie 4/5 Disc 3.5/5

October 13
16) Amittyville Horror (2005) (DVD) - Creepier and scarier than the original! Movie 4/5 Disc 3.5/5

17) Shawn of the Dead (Blu-Ray) - Brilliant film I never get tired of watching. Movie 5/5 Disc 4.5/5

18)Friday the 13th Part 3 (Blu-Ray) - Jason gets his hockey mask Move 4/5 Disc 4/5

October 14
19)28 Weeks Later (Blu-Ray) - A sequel thats just as good as the original Movie 5/5 Disc 4.5 / 5

20)Friday the 13th (2009) (Blu-Ray) - Still waiting for the rumored sequel. Movie 4/5 Disc 4.5/5

October 15
21)Lake Placid (DVR HD) - Betty White & giant alligators. Fun movie! Movie 4/5

October 16
22)Chernobyl Diaries (Blu-Ray) - I was intrigued by the premis of this flick despite all of the bad reviews. In the end I really enjoyed it. Didn't love it, but liked it. Some good creepy moments. Could probably have been much better though. Movie 3.5/5 Disc 3.5/5

23)Dead Snow (Blu-Ray) - Evil Dead with Nazi zombies....in the snow! One of the better "Nazi Zombie" flicks. Movie 4/5 Disc 4.5/5

October 17
24)Night of the Living Dead (1990) (Blu-Ray) - This is the "infamous" Twilight Time disc that has received so much negative reaction due to the "blue tint". The picture is no where near as dark as the internet screen shots would have you believe. Actually, I thought the picture looked pretty darn good. I for one am glad to have this in my collection. Movie 4/5 Disc 4/5

25)Horror of Dracula (DVD) - Pretty much essential viewing this time of year. Movie 5/5

October 18
26)Stake Land (Blu-Ray) - Sort of like Walking Dead only with vampires. These aren't "Twilight" vampires either. In Stake Land they are vicious killers. Good film. Movie 4/5 Disc 4/5

October 19
27)Friday the 13th Part VI Jason Lives (DVD) - Good flick. Probably my least favorite Jason "look". Movie 4/5 Disc /5

October 20
28) The Mist (Blu-Ray) - Interesting fact: Turns out the writer/Director of this film is also the creator of The Walking Dead. "Andrea", "Dale", and "Carol" from The Walking Dead are also in this movie. Movie 4.5/5 Disc 5/5

29)The Mummy (1959) (TCM HD) - Another classic from Hammer

October 21
30)Sinister (Theater) - Two words sum this one up: Not Scary. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was quite disappointed with this one. Movie 2/5

October 22
31)Return of the Living Dead Part 2 (DVD) - Not the classic the first one is, but still a lot of fun. Movie 4/5 Disc 3.5/5

October 23
32)Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Blu-Ray) - This movie is an absolute blast. It cleverly blends history of Abe Lincoln as a slayer of vampires. Never a dull moment & the actor that played A.L. was spot on. I have a feeling this will be on regular rotation for me this time of year. Movie 4.5/5 Disc 4.5/5

October 24
33)Bram Stroker's Dracula (DVR, HD) - Not really one of my favorites, but the wife requested it. I can't get passed Keanu Reeves Movie 2.5/5

October 25
34)Night of the Demons (1988) (DVD) - Oh 1980's cheesy horror how I love thee Movie 3.5/5 Disc 3.5/5

35)Dracula (DVD) - Classic Universal horrors Movie 4.5/5 Disc 4/5

October 26
36)Night of the Demons (2010) (Blu-Ray) - Movie 4.5/5 Disc 4.5/5

37)Hatchet (Blu-Ray) - Movie 4/5 Disc 4/5

39)Pumpkinhead (DVD) - A Halloween favorite! Movie 5/6 Disc 4/5

October 27
40)Dracula Has Risen from the Grave (TCM HD) - Hammer on a Saturday morning. It just seems right Movie 4/5

41)Brides of Dracula (DVD) - Probably my favorite Hammer film Movie 5/5 Disc 4/5

October 28
42)Silent Hill Revelation (Theater) - Pretty lame script and some cool imagery pretty much sums this one up Movie 1/5

43)Dog Soldiers (DVD) - In honor of the tonight's full moon. Movie 4/5 Disc 3.5/5

44)The Wolf Man (1941) (DVD) - A must watch this time of year. Movie 5/5 Disc 4/5

October 29
45)Halloween III: Season of the Witch (Blu-Ray) - A true definition of a collector's edition disc from Scream factory. The transfer is unbelievable! Great extras, custom artwork and original poster artwork on reversible cover. If you like this movie don't hesitate to pick this up and support the effort from Scream factory! Movie 4.5/5 Disc 5/5

October 30
46)Halloween, John Carpenter's (Theater) - Lot of fun seeing this one on the big screen again. It certainly gives the movie a different "feel". Movie 5/5

47)Halloween II (Blu-Ray) - Another great disc from Shout! / Scream Factory. Highly recommended. Movie 5/5 Disc 5/5

October 31 - Halloween
48)Frankenstein (TCM HD) - Classic for Halloween!

Re: The 8th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread



RED BOLD = 1st time viewing

* = Awful. Avoid this movie!
** = Has its moments, but not that good.
*** = Solid. Worth a watch.
**** = Really good. I enjoyed it a lot!
***** = Fantastic! A true classic.


October 1

001. Plague of the Zombies (1966): A young doctor calls for his university professor/mentor when a strange illness infects several in his 1800s Cornish town. The story is fairly typical, but it's a good-looking movie and decently acted. ***

002. Lake Mungo (2008): 16-year old Alice Palmer drowns during a family outing. Shortly after her funeral, her family begin experiencing strange things. Scared of what's happening to them, they call for a psyhic and slowly learn that Alice wasn't who they thought her to be. More of a psyhological thriller than pure horror. While not great, it left me unsettled for a while. Very creepy in spots. ***

October 2

003. Ruby (1977): gangster moll Ruby Clare watches as her boyfriend Nick Rocco is killed at the hands of his gang. Going into shock, a pregnant Ruby gives birth soon after to Leslie, who is a deaf-mute. Ruby opens a drive-in theater and hires the old gang as they retire from the mob. Bizarre things happen and the gang is killed one by one by an invisible force--the ghost of Nick Rocco, who takes possession of his daughter. Piper Laurie is good as the fading mob girl Ruby. The movie is dated, but still has its moments and has interesting cinematography. ***

004. The Substitute (2007): Carl is a 6th-grade boy in Denmark dealing with his mother's death. Around the same time, his class gets a substitute teacher who is cold and mean toward the students. With help from his classmate Phillip, Carl soon realizes that his new teacher, Ulla Harms, isn't exactly one of them. More of a sci-fi thriller, but was part of the Ghost House Underground series from five years ago. Very well acted, especially Paprika Steen as Ulla. Not scary so much, but a decent popcorn flick. Pretty funny, too. ***

October 3

005. Cropsey (2009): a documentary that uses the legend of Staten Island's version of the Boogeyman, Cropsey, to follow the story of Andre Rand, a man convicted of kidnapping and believed to have killed several mentally challenged children over several years. Unsolved child abductions + the conviction of a possibly Satan-worshipping lunatic who no one can certainly say killed these children = creepy! Rand seemed to be a sicko, but he may have also been the victim of a railroading by a community looking to rid themselves of the ghosts of a long-since closed mental hosptial where many handicapped people suffered abuse in their backyard. It plays like a Dateline NBC mystery story, but it will leave you with a chill as the moviemakers walk through the abandoned Willowbrook Hospital, whose underground tunnels became home to some of society's forgotten people long after the facility was shut down. If you're into true crime stories, watch this one and lose a night's sleep. ****

006. 28 Weeks Later (2007): the sequel to 28 Days Later, a U.S. led NATO group moves into London to help re-establish the city after the Rage Virus seems to have died out. People live in the deemed-safe District One. A woman, left behind by her husband during an attack, is found and appears to be only a carrier of the Rage virus. But all hell breaks loose when she passes the virus to her husband and he turns into a full-blown Rager. A small group led by U.S. Sargeant Doyle tries to survive the ragers, as well as the military-ordered Code Red to firebomb the entire district. Very good and a logical step from 28 Days Later. *** 1/2

October 4

October 5

007. 100 Feet (2008): After serving time for killing her abusive cop husband, Marnie moves back into her NYC townhouse to live under house arrest. Marnie soon finds herself haunted by her husband's ghost. Pretty good movie with a creepy supernatural angle. The ending, though, is awful and really took me out of the film. It's just too ham-fisted to be remotely believable. Too bad, because it's a solid movie otherwise. Famke Janssen is good in this. ***

October 6

008. The Invisible Man (1933): Scientist Jack Griffin experiments on himself and then terrorizes half of England as he kills while being invisible. Classic movie, beautifully shot and with some nifty special effects for its time. A must watch for any horror buff. **** 1/2

009. Dream Home (2010): A young woman living in Hong Kong will do anything to have her own apartment, including murder. REALLY good movie, super gory with some disturbing kills. The backdrop of someone wanting the stability of owning a home can bring is an interesting concept around which to make a horror movie. Lots of "I can't believe they just did THAT" moments in the film. Fans of Asian horror should watch this, but again, it's very VERY gory and not for the faint of heart. **** 1/2

October 7

010. The Headless Ghost (1959): some college kids get locked in a haunted castle and help a ghost find his head. A dull affair. **
October 8

011. American Scary (2006): a documentary on local TV horror hosts and how they became a part of cult culture. Interesting, but they spent too much time on the very local guys that no one outside their area will know. Could have used an interview from Elvira, and I would have liked to have seen move vintage movie footage. But everyone involved seemed to be having a good time and that makes the documentary pretty cool to watch. ***

October 9

012. Bloody Birthday (1981): Debbie, Curtis and Steven aren't normal 10-year-olds. Not only where they all born on the same day under a solar eclipse, they're evil to boot and will kill anyone: teachers, parents, classmates, babysitters. A bunch of MEH with this one. The astrology angle is silly and the camera work is very average. The child actors are pretty good, though. If you're into 1980s cheesy horror, go for it. Otherwise? You're not missing anything. ** 1/2

October 10

013. Rammbock/Berlin Undead (2010): lovesick over his girlfriend and looking to reunite with her in Berlin, a young man finds himself trapped in an apartment with a plumber's apprentice when a zombie-like/rage virus breaks out. This movie doesn't break any molds, but it's very well done. It combines terror and drama very well. Almost feels like a modern version of Night of the Living Dead combined with 28 Days Later. ****

October 11

014. Scarecrows (1998): A group of AWOL thieves rob a military base of $3 million and force a pilot and his daughter to fly them to freedom. One of the thieves decides to make off with all the money and parachutes out of the plane. He finds himself in the middle of an abandoned farm where not only does he have to stay ahead of his fellow robbers, but also deal with the scarecrows scattered around who seem to take on lives of their own. A low budget affair with some sketchy acting, but the story is good and takes on a supernatural element that I missed the first time I watched it a few years ago. The scarecrows look legit scary and things get pretty bloody. A solid film. ***
October 12
October 13
October 14

The Loved Ones (2009): Brent is a teenaged guy, full of guilt over his father's death in a car accident when Brent was driving. Brent smokes weed and cuts himself in order to cope. While out in the country one day, Brent is sedated and drugged. He wakes up to find himself at the home of Lola, an oddly quiet girl from school who had asked Brent to the prom date. He declined because he already had a date, but Lola is obsessed at finding her prince. Her father helps her in her quest. Really good movie, a nice cross between The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Carrie. Pretty gory in spots with strong acting, especially by the actress who plays Lola. Soundtrack is good, too. Really good. ****

Vampire Circus (1972): Villagers kill a local vampire after they learn of his seducing wives and killing children. He puts a curse on the village. 15 years later, as the village is overcome battling the plague, a traveling circus comes in. One by one, the children of the village disappear. One of Hammer Studio's stronger movies. It's campy and fun, and as long as you don't take it too seriously, it's a joy to watch. The vampires sort of look like Mick Jagger's friends with the mod-like clothes and rock star swagger. Enjoyable. *** 1/2
October 15
October 16

Tucker & Dale Vs Evil (2010): West Virginia hillbillies Tucker and Dale are looking to enjoy a nice vacation at their mountain cabin when they run into some college kids who assume they are serial killers. Freaking hilarious! Parody is great when those involved care about the genre and everyone in thos movie does. Lots of nice homages throughout and the leads are legitimately funny. It's a bit gory, but not too bad if that sort of thing bothers you. WATCH THIS MOVIE and enjoy the ride! *****

October 17
October 18
October 19
October 20

The Stuff (1985):When a new dessert sells like gangbusters, the ice cream industry hires a former FBI agent to figure out just what about THE STUFF keeps people buying more. HILARIOUSLY campy! Not remotely scary, but it's a ton of fun to watch. Michael Moriarty is great as the lead who tries to track down the ingredients in the new treat. Funny and so worth a watch if you're into campy films. *** 1/2

October 21

Session 9 (2001): An asbestos crew tries to clean up an abandoned mental hospital in a week to collect a big bonus, but soon find themselves falling under the spell of one former patient. A super creepy story that draws you into it and gets under your skin. No cheap scares, very little blood--but legit scary as the crew falls apart. Good performances and the characters are well-developed. Nothing feels cheap. It would be easy to make the characters stupid, but what you get is a group of guys who are just looking to get ahead on a crappy job. It's relatable and makes them that more sympathetic. This one will stay with you for a while. Very good. ****
October 22
October 23

Mad Monster Party (1967): Dr. Frankenstein has just created the formula that can destoy all humanity. He plans to give the formula and his entire operation to his successor, as he plans to retire. Dr. Frankenstein throws a party to announce his plans, inviting his fellow monsters who upon learning of his impending retirement, set out to get their hands on the new formula. Lots of fun from the Rankin-Bass studio. Boris Karloff is great as the voice for Dr. Frankenstein, and Phyllis Diller is a riot as the love interest to Frankenstein's monster. Not too creepy for older kids, but enough to keep adults entertained. Very enjoyable. ****

October 24

The Hearse (1980): When her aunt dies, a young woman inherits an old house and an antique hearse. It seems that not only are the locals trying to be rid of her, but the woman finds herself chased by the hearse. Is someone actually trying to get rid of her, or is her deliate emotional state finally getting the best of her? Decent little flick. Not super scary, but it does has some atmosphere going for it and Joseph Cotten in his last role before his death is spot on as the cranky old lawyer. OK enough. ***

Alice, Sweet Alice (1976):

Title in black bold = DVD/Blu Ray from my personal collection

Title in blue bold = seen in movie theater during it's current run
Title in red bold = DVD/Blu Ray rental
* = first time viewing

OCTOBER 1
1. Jekyll
(2007) Episodes 1 & 2 Call it a remake, update, re-imagining or whatever, but this BBC miniseries is excellent all around. The performance of James Nesbitt as Dr. Tom Jackman (Jeckyll) and Mr. Hyde is rather cartoony when he's Hyde but riveting to watch as either persona.
2. Jekyll Episodes 3 & 4
3. Blacula* (1972) 31 Film Sub-Set
4. Jekyll Episodes 5 & 6
5. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) THEME NIGHTS: Urban Horror No introduction neccesary for what is probably the most famous horror film of the 80's. I can boast that I've seen all the Nightmare films during their original theatrical run.

October 2
6. Quarantine 2: Terminal
* (2007) A sequel to a remake but one that is not a remake of the original's sequel. Got it? What this means is that this is in no way connected to REC 2. Having said that, this is a pretty standard zombie/killer virus movie with some passangers trapped in the baggage area of an airplane terminal.
7. Nightmare Castle (1965) THEME NIGHTS: 1960's Horror Cinema Like in Black Sunday, Barbara Steele again plays a dual role as an innocent young woman and as her evil relative who tries to possess her. Nowhere near as good as Black Sunday but still enjoyable. The plot has a very EC Comics feel to it.
8. A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985) The odd man out of the Nightmare sequels. Only Robert Englund returns from the original cast and the film suffers for it as well as having teen leads that are as bland and uncharismatic as can be. The story concerns Freddy trying to groom a teen into becoming his succesor and thereby possessing him. Interesting to not that in this film Freddy's claws are directly attached to his fingers without the need of a glove.
9. A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987) After the disappointment of Nightmare 2 the producers get it right. They bring back (Nancy) Heather Langenkamp and her dad (genre fave John Saxon) to face off with Freddy once again. This time she's a psychologist who helps teens with dream disorders brought on by The Gloved One. The film introduces new characters, including Kristen (whiny voiced Patrica Arquette) who has the ability to pull people into her dreams. It also gives us an insight into Freddy's origin
10. A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988) Kristen from the previous film returns (this time played by Tuesday Knight) but only to pass on the torch (and her powers) to a new female lead - Alice (Lisa Wilcox).

October 3
11. A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child
(1989) Lisa Wilcox returns as Alice and this time she's pregnant and her unborn baby's dreams are the portal through which Freddy seeks his new victims. By this time Freddy has degenerated into a wise cracking killer so any fear he might inspire is totally negated by his endless one-liners. The storyline of Freddy's origin as the sun of a raped nun (introduced in Nightmare 3) is brought back and is tied int the plot of Alice's unborn child. Not the best but not the worst of the Nightmare sequels.
12. The Possession* (2012) It's not often that Jewish myths get used in horror films so it's a nice change of pace from the usual possession story. A girl opens a magic box containing a Dibbuk, a demon, and becomes possessed by it. Better than average.
13. Ghost Story AKA Circle of Fear* (1972) Episodes: The new house / The dead we leave behind Not the 1980's film but a horror anthology TV series from the 70's.
14. Exorcismus* (2010) It's hard to bring anything new to the possessed by the devil genre but this one pulls it off. A girl becomes possessed by a demon and is exorcised by a priest but there's a pretty unusual twist that elevates the story above the countless The Exorcist rip-offs.
15. Coma (1978) THEME NIGHTS: Medical Horrors / Wildcard 1 More of a thriller than a horror film, thus the wildcard. Tells the tale of a hospital who purposely puts patients into a coma for their own nefarious purposes. Pretty damn good thriller.

October 4
16. The Cabin in the Woods
* (2012) 31 FILM SUBSET
17. Freddy's Dead, the Final Nightmare (1991) Longtime producer Rachel Talalay takes the director's chair for the final film in the regular series and she brings even more humor to the proceedings. Practically every line Freddy utters is a joke (some of them really bad) and the whole thing is pretty much played for laughs. We get to know some more of Freddy's back story in some flashbacks which is sort of interesting but it doesn't help to save the film. The lovely Lisa Zane plays Freddy's daughter who must enter the dream world and destroy The Gloved One once and for all. I will brag that my DVD copy is autographed by Ms. Zane herself!
18. Wes Craven's New Nightmare (1994) THEME NIGHTS: Meta Horror Films It's a movie within a movie (sort of) as Heather Langenkamp, Robert Englund, John Saxon and director Wes Craven return playing themselves as they reunite for a new Nightmare film. Meanwhile in the "real" world an entity has taken the form of Freddy and starts invading the dreams of all involved including Heather's child who is particularly susceptible.

October 5
19. Wake Wood
(2011) One of my absolute favorite horror films of recent years and quite simply one of the best Hammer films ever. With elements of folk/pagan lore and some restrained and low key direction this is a film that slowly builds tension until its satisfying finale. Highly recommended.
20. Lifeforce (1985) Three words: Mathilda May naked. That's all you need to know in order to want to watch this movie. If that's not enough, how about a film directed by Tobe Hooper and written by Dan O'Bannon (Alien) based on Colin Wilson' novel The Space Vampires. An alien spacecraft travelling within the tail of Haley's Comet is intercepted by a space shuttle and the astronauts bring aboard with them three humanoids which turn out to be vampires. Once on earth chaos ensues as the lead vampire (played by the drop-dead gorgeous Mathilda May, who is frequently nude) is able to transfer her consciousness from body to body, all the while infecting more people and turning them into zombie-like creatures. Totally over the top at times but highly entertaining. Also there's a rousing main theme by Henry Mancini that may be his finest hour.
21. Blood Mania (1970) THEME NIGHTS: Exploitation Horror There's plenty of nudity in this one so it qualifies as exploitation in my book. A woman (the stunning Maria de Aragon) kills her father in order to inherit money but things don't go exactly as planned. Mediocre and only worth it for the 70's stylings and the aforementioned skin.
22. The Grudge (2004) One of the first Asian Horror movies I ever saw, if not the first and I remember it scared the crap out of me when I saw it during its original theatrical run. Sarah Michelle Gellar is an American in Japan who becomes involved in a haunting by a vengeful ghost.

October 6 - Katharine Ross Double Feature!
23. The Legacy
* (1978) Katahrine Ross and Sam Elliot are two Americans who are invited to spend some time in an Olde English Mansion. They each start dyiing one by one because of a curse. Pretty standard stuff that in 1978 was already getting old.
24. The Stepford Wives (1975) An absolute classic that still holds up. I'm really glad I finally have my own DVD copy of this.
25. Scanners (1981) THEME NIGHTS: Exploding Head Horror Yes, I picked the obvious one, but I hadn't seen this movie in ages.

October 7
26. The Vampire Lovers
(1970) THEME NIGHTS: Scream Queens Seen with commentary by Ingrid Pitt and the writer and director Ingrid Pitt is the Scream Queen in question in this loose adaptation of the short story Carmilla. Ingrid is just wonderful as the vampire seductress and this is one Hammer's better films. Sadly Ingrid's commentary track is rather sparse and at times she seems to be struggling to catch a breath.
27. Prom Night* (1980) Rather dull teen slasher flick with a young Jamie Lee Curtis. The killings don't start until an hour into the movie and the rest of the time is spent in high school drama. It's incredible that this movie spawned 3 sequels and a remake.
28. The Fog (1980) I don't hold this movie in such high regard as others in spite of it being a John Carpenter film, maybe it's because I didn't see it when it originally came out. Don't get me wrong, it's still a good (if rather standard) ghost story but it's not a classic in my book.

October 8
29. Revenge of the Stepford Wives
* (1980) THEME NIGHTS: Remakes vs Sequels Made for TV sequel to the classic film which is not even half as good as the original. A reporter (Sharon Gless of Cagney & Lacey) goes to Stepford to investigate why the town has such a low crime and divorce rate. Julie Kavner better known as the voice of Marge Simpson also stars as one of the wives who this time around are subjected to mind control drugs instead of turned into robots like in the first one.
30. Mother's Day* (2010) 31 FILM SUBSET Hadn't seen this one and still haven't seen the original. Having said that I really enjoyed this movie. The tension was almost constant throughout and there were plenty of good twists to the story. What elevates this movie way beyond the usual fare is Rebecca De Mornay's performance which was stellar. She's at the same time terrifying and incredibly appealing, and yes, she's still hot! The rest of the actors were also quite good but didn't hold a candle to Ms. De Mornay who outshone them in every scene she was in. OK, enough gushing - the were a few flaws, mainly the usual problem of having characters behave like idiots in a few badly written scenes. But then again if you're a horror fan, you learn to just accept this.


October 9
31. I Am Omega
* (2007) THEME NIGHTS: ZOMBIE FILMS For an Asylum picture this is pretty damn good, perhaps the best I've seen from the studio. An obvious reference to I Am Legend but one that stands on its own as a post-apocalyptic zombie movie. Marc Dacascos is very good as one of the last survivors of a zombie plague and he's soon joined by others who may or may not be his friends. Lots of great zombie fighting action and more than decent acting by everyone make this one a keeper.
32. Dead Awake* (2010) WILDCARD 2 This is more of a paranormal romance than horror, thus the wildcard but it does have its share of dreamlike creepy moments. I admit I rented it solely for the two lead actresses, Rose McGowan and Amy Smart, who play two women involved with a death-obsessed man (Nick Stahl) with whom they share a past. There is a supernatural angle but it's very low key and not as horrific as the movie's title implies. Still, a very entertaining movie.

October 10
33. Eye of the Beast
* (2007) James Van Der Beek fights a giant squid in a small fishing town. That's pretty much it. Standard monster effects and very little gore but mildly entertaining nonetheless.
34. Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth* (1992) THEME NIGHTS: Rubber Suit Horror Films A giant meteor strikes the earth and awakens Godzilla, Mothra and a third creature called Battra. The plot is rather convoluted and Godzilla's involvement in the story is rather tangential until the big three-way monster fight at the end of the movie. Yes, the two tiny girls who can communicate with Mothra also appear.
35. Cat People (1982) Seen with commentary by director Paul Schrader First let's make it clear that this film has almost NOTHING to do with the 1940's version and that's just fine by me. Having said that this is quite simply one of my favorite movies, period. I was lucky enough to see it during its original theatrical run and have seen it several times since and it just gets better with repeated viewings. Yes the special effects are at times somewhat dated but that is a minor consideration. This is the first time I see it with commentary from director Paul Schrader and it really opened up my appreciation for the film. The movie has a very dream-like quality to it and the horror is at times subtle and at others very graphic. Through it all there is a very heavy erotic theme coupled with a narrative that is not always straightforward. These elements, along with the beautiful and very cat-like Nastassja Kinski and brit Malcolm McDowell give the film a very European feel as stated by Paul Schrader in the commentary. Production design is just brilliant and the use of the New Orleans setting really adds to the mood. Also a terrific soundtrack by Giorgio Moroder (which I have on vinyl LP). Enough gushing, give this movie another chance if you haven't seen it in awhile.
36. Phantom of the Opera (1943) Seen with commentary by film historian Scott MacQueen I was surprised that this movie was from the 40's since it's in brilliant Technicolor. This is a Universal Remake of their own Phantom film with Lon Chaney but this time with the vain Claude Reins as the Phantom. I say vain because according to the commentary track he did not want to be show with a scared face and so he wears a mask throughout the whole movie save for a very brief reveal scene at the end, and even then it's only half his face that's scarred. The movie kind of fails as a horror movie because there's juts not that much horror going on. Most of the movie involves the behind the scenes goings on of an opera theater as well as some very elaborate opera set pieces that while very grandiose just go on for way too long. Too much opera, not enough Phantom.

October 11
37. The Messengers
(2007) A pre-Twilight Kristen Stewart stars in this ghost story about a small family that has moved into a farm. Kind of middle of the road but there are some effective scenes here and there.
38. The Island of Dr. Moreau (1977) Michael York and Burt Lancaster go head to head in this adaptation of H.G. Wells' novel of a mad doctor trying to turn animals into men. The lovely Barbara Carrera provides the eye candy. I hadn't seen this in ages and was surprised how well it stand up.
39. The Wicker Man (1973) THEME NIGHTS: Arthouse Horror Films Still a classic and holds up to repeated viewings. I just wish there had been more of Ingrid Pitt.

October 12
40. Demon Seed
(1977) THEME NIGHTS: Killer robots / Evil technology Julie Christie stars as a woman trapped in her automated house by a computer who wants to impregnate her and become a living being. Preposterous but still very entertaining, especially for the presence of Ms. Christie.
41. The Screaming Woman* (1972) A woman (Olivia de Havilland) hears a woman buried alive and screaming, she tells several people but they dismiss her and she grows more and more frantic. For such a simple premise, this made for TV movie really keeps up the suspense.
42. An American Werewolf in London (1981) Seen with commentary by David Naughton and Griffine Dunne Still the best Werewolf film ever made. Plus it also stars Jenny Agutter so what more can you ask for?

October 13
43. And Soon the Darkness
* (1970) A very slow moving but ultimately effective thriller about two English girls travelling by bicycle in the French countryside who become separated and then one must look for the other. The film could have been edited down a bit because it really takes its time but it's still a good film nevertheless.
44. The Asphyx (1973) A classic in my opinion. A man discovers that by trapping a spirit that comes to one when near death one can become immortal. The terrifying consequences of this action is what the movie is about. Really good stuff and a bit more cerebral than the usual stuff of the time.
45. Soul Survivors (2001) THEME NIGHTS: Teen Screams It's only after seeing this movie three times and with commentary by actress Melissa Sagemiller that I finally understood the whole story of the movie. You see, it's one of those movies with a twist ending (which I won't reveal here) that either makes the film very clever or leaves the audience feeling cheated. Audiences of the time obviously felt the latter since it has a 3.7 rating on IMDB. The plot? A college girl survives a car accident and keeps seeing ghosts.

October 14
46. Alligator
* (1980) THEME NIGHTS: Underground Horror Incredibly enough, I had never seen this cult classic that really lives up to its fame as a very entertaining film. Besides, any movie with Robert Forster is cool. And why had I never heard of the drop-dead gorgeous Robin Ryker? Shame on me.
47. The Return* (2006) Only the presence of Sarah Michelle Gellar makes this film watchable since it's very slow moving. Gellar plays a woman who has visions of a violent attack on another woman and these visions cause her to cut herself.
48. Friday the 13th the Series (1989) Season 2 Episodes: The Sweetest Sting / Night Hunter

October 15
49. Hybrid
* (2007) A scientist (Justine Bateman) has perfected cross-species organ transplant and transplants the eyes of a wolf to a blind man. Said man begins to exhibit wolf-like behavior. He doesn't turn into a werewolf, just starts behaving like a wolf - boring. Don't waste your time.
50. The Evil of Frankenstein* (1964) THEME NIGHTS: Frankenstein I'm not familiar with Hammer's Frankenstein films (of which there are several) so I can't say how this one fares among the rest but I did find it entertaining. There are not one but two "bringing the Monster back to life" scenes. Too bad the design of the creature's makeup looked like it was made of cardboard.
51. Let Me In (2010) Seen with commentary by the director Simply my favorite horror film in the last 20 years. It's as good and in parts better than the original Swedish version. If you haven't seen it do so immediately.
52. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde* (1931) Hadn't seen this one and shame on me because it's a damn good movie that's still scary all these decades later. Fredric March is astounding as Mr. Hyde making him truly repulsive and evil. A must see.

October 16
53. The Frozen Dead
(1967) THEME NIGHTS: Nazi Horror Saw this on TV as a kid in the late 70's and it scared the crap out of me - I'm talking nightmares for years! Hadn't seen it since but it really holds up and the pitiful severed head is creepy as hell. The last line of the movie is absolutely sanity-shattering.
54. Fright Night* (2011) I liked this a lot more than I expected but then again I wasn't expecting much from this remake. The first half of the film has some genuine suspense but it goes straight into horror-comedy mode once "McLovin" turns into a vampire. Some damn good effects and solid acting all-around. Very entertaining.

October 17
55. Harlequin AKA Dark Forces
(1980) Hadn't seen this one since I saw it in theaters way back in the early 80's but I had fond memories of this unusual tale of a magician who becomes close to the family of a politician. Said magician is much more than he seems to be when he cures a boy of leukemia and exhibits other extraordinary powers. Not your usual stuff - recommended.
56. The Grudge 2 (2006) THEME NIGHTS: Apartment Horror Decent sequel to The Grudge that expands the story a bit.
57. Resident Evil: Retribution* (2012) The fifth in the series, and by this time who cares. I only saw it to see Milla Jovovich in 3D.
58. 'Salem's Lot (2004) TV mini series part 1 Pretty good adaptation of Stephen King's novel but still not as good as the 1979 version even though this one is more faithful to the book.

October 18
59. 'Salem's Lot
(2004) TV mini series part 2
60. Nightmares & Dreamscapes (2006) Episodes: The Fifth Quarter / Crouch End
61. Hidden* (2) THEME NIGHTS: Nether Horror vs Norwegian Horror Incredibly boring Norwegian film about... well, I don't know, the whole thing is a muddled mess. As the DVD Talk reviewers say - skip it.
62. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988) After the Michael-less third entry the masked one returns to Haddonfield to kill again. Instead of stalking Lori (Jaime Lee Curtis, who doesn't appear here) this time Michael is in search of her daughter played by Danielle Harris who was a child at the time. Donald Pleasance reprises his role as Dr. Loomis.

October 19
63. A Nightmare on Elm Street
(1984) THEME NIGHTS: Slashers Seen with commentary by director Wes Craven, cinematographer Jacques Haitkin and actors Heather Langenkamp and John Saxon Yes, I've already seen this movie for this challenge but this time it's with commentary, so it counts.

October 20
64. The Lair of the White Worm
(1988) THEME NIGHTS: Bela & Bram (I chose Bram) [I]An adaptation of Bram Stoker's other novel (yes, he wrote more than Dracula) that under the hands of director Ken Russel is visually exciting and a bit confusing. I've never been a fan of mixing comedy with horror since it never works. Once you start putting one-liners in a film the whole thing becomes a comedy and any true fear is defused. Even so it's worth a look if only for the very enticing Amanda Donohoe. Hugh Grant also stars if anyone cares. The plot? A priestess from a snake cult who can sprout snake-like fangs seeks to find a victim to sacrifice to her giant snake god.[/SIZE]

October 21
65. Invasion of the Body Snatchers
(1978) THEME NIGHTS: Apocalyptic Horror Seen with commentary by director Philip Kaufman Probably my favorite of all the adaptations of Jack Finney's novel.

October 22 - Richard Matheson Double Feature!
66. Trilogy of Terror
(1975) THEME NIGHTS: Inspired by Richard Matheson Made for TV movies from the 70's are favorites of mine so this is right up my alley. Karen Black stars in 3 tales of terror based on Richard Matheson's stories, the most famous of which is the last segment with the killer African doll.
67. The Last Man on Earth (1964) 31 FILM SUBSET Probably my favorite of all the adaptations of Matheson's I Am Legend. Vincent Price gives a great performance.
68. Howling III: The Marsupials (1987) One of the many bottom of the barrel sequels to The Howling. They tried to go with horror-comedy but the comedy falls flat and the horror is non-existent.

October 23
69. Thirst
* (2009) THEME NIGHTS: Asian Horror Not since Let Me In have I seen such an original and refreshing take on the vampire genre. It could easily have been called Vampires: A Love Story since it's as much about relationships as it is about vampires. A must see.
70. The Walking Dead* (2012) Season 3 episodes: Seed / Sick Pretty damn good start to the third season.

October 24
71. Paranormal Activity 4
* (2012) The welcome mat is wearing thin for this series but it still scared the crap out of me.
72. Frankenstein (2004) TV miniseries part 1 THEME NIGHTS: Grave-robbing Horror Another adaptation of the classic novel, this time as 2 part TV mini series. Because of the length of it we pretty much get all of Shelley's novel and then some. The creature was a bit too "woe is me" for my tastes but overall a good adaptation if a bit drawn out.
73. Frankenstein (2004) TV miniseries part 2

October 25
74. Dark Shadows
(2012) After totally hating the trailer and predicting this would blow, it's really starting to grow on me after having seen it twice now. It's still not very good but at least it's not terrible.
75. Sleepaway Camp* (1983) THEME NIGHTS: Campground Tales Hadn't seen this one and though the movie itself is pretty standard and somewhat tame the freak-out ending really delivers.

October 26
76. The Haunting of Lisa
* (1996) THEME NIGHTS: Supernatural Cheryl Ladd stars as a mother whose daughter has visions of a murder. Pretty standard made for TV movie.
77. Death Dreams* (1991) Christopher Reeve and Marg Helgenberger (from TV's CSI) are a married couple whose daughter dies in an accident - or was it? Her spirit returns to haunt them. Another made for TV movie but with above average acting.
78. Predators (2010) Decent entry in the series, but that's not saying much considering the others are Predator 2 and the two Alien vs Predator movies. The problem here (and this goes for all the Alien sequels) is that the potential is never fully realized and we again miss the opportunity of having the action take place on the Predator's home planet which is what we all want to see. Adrien Brody makes for an unlikely action hero but he pulls it off nicely and the rest of the cast

October 27 - Mexican Horror triple feature! No theme - watch whatever
79. Museo del Horror
* (Horror Museum) (1966) A pretty standard "wax museum" tale. A madman murders young women to put them on display in his museum and pass them off as waxworks.
80. El Vampiro* (The Vampire) (1957) Pretty damn decent vampire flick even if it's ripe with clichs. Germn Robles plays a Lugosi-like vampire called Count Lavud who seeks to take over a small town.
81. El Atad del Vampiro* (The Vampire's Coffin) (1958) Good sequel to El Vampiro. Germn Robles reprises his role as well as having the return of two other actors from the previous film playing the heroes, Abel Salazar and the lovely Ariadna Welter. Very entertaining for what it is.

October 28
82. Rubber
* (2010) THEME NIGHTS: Road Terrors The joke wore off after the first 20 minutes.
83. IT (1990) TV mini series part 1 Faithful adaptation of Stephen King's lengthy novel which falls somewhat short and feels a bit dated, but still pretty good as far as King adaptations go. The highlight is Tim Curry as Pennywise the clown, if you weren't afraid of clowns before, this'll change your mind.

October 29
84. IT
(1990) TV mini series part 2
85. The Wolfman (2010) THEME NIGHTS: Werewolves Not a popular film but I like it a lot. Then again I'm biased towards Victorian-era horror.

October 30
86. REC 3 Genesis
* (2012) THEME NIGHTS: Satanic
87. The Walking Dead / American Horror Story* (2012) Episodes: Walk with me / Welcome to Briarcliff

October 31
88. Veneno para las Hadas
(1984) This Mexican film is a cult classic as far as I'm concerned. A young girl exerts an evil influence over a friend of hers by claiming that she's a witch and coerces her into doing her bidding. Things escalate until a rather shocking finale which I won't reveal here. The young girl playing the evil "witch" is as cute as she is creepy. Recommended.
89. The Halloween that Almost Wasn't* (1979) THEME NIGHTS: Halloween-related Made for TV Halloween special from the late 70's. Strictly for kids.
90. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1942) I'm hard-pressed to choose between this version and the 1931 Frederic March version because they're both so damn good and still hold up very well. Spencer Tracy is Jekyll/Hyde and he's flanked by none other than Ingrid Bergman and Lana Turner! Enough to split anyone's personality.

First Timer *

10/1/12
1.The Orphan Killer*
All of what I expected. Blood, guts & nudity. good slasher film to begin.



2.Zombie*
I can see why this is a classic.

3.Attack the Block*
Got really into this when the alien monsters came down. The youngsters played the part really well.

4. Monster Brawl*
Like the idea of this using classic monsters to fight in the ring. Mix in some wrestling personalities and pretty much entertain me.


10/2/12
5. Detention*
Nice under the radar film. Mix of scream and easy a

6. Eddie The Sleepwalking Cannibal*
Thought it will be better. Still a decent story

7.Chained*
Liked this one very much. The killer voice makes you listen to him very carefully

8. Piranha 3DD*
Another gorefest with silicone extravaganza. Not as good as the first but still another fun ride

9. The Devil Inside*
Reminded me of the last exorcism. Same docu/film with the ending leave you hanging for more

10. The Victim*
Don't know what to think of this sexy thriller other than it starts out with a bang with Danielle Harris. Pun intended


10/3/12
11. House Of Fears*
With a Scarecrow, Clown and other demonic ghost, this was a pretty fun haunted house flick.

12.Xll Twelve Die Jury*
How fitting this is my 12th film and its call twelve. Didn't notice it or planed it till writing this. Kool villain. Reminded me a cross btw Leatherface & Jason.

13. Basket Case*
Just heard about this recently. Don't know how this flew under the radar for me. Fan of 80's horror. Good concept of a monster. Thought this had soooo much screaming.

14. Invasion Of Th Body Snactchers*
Happy this came out this year on blu. Never seen it b4 and only heard good things about it. Wasn't disappointed. The music score and scenery was so erie.


10/4/12

Nice indy film that has its good moments. Starts with the usual lunatic kidnapping these young hot girls then takes to a place to a do a ritual
16. Abbott & Costello meet Frankenstein*
Not into their movies but this was a must see. Good laughs and seeing some the classic monsters in this one made it enjoyable. Bela played dracula better in this one than his feature imo

10/7/12
18. Black Sabbath*
Had to get into my Mario Bava this year. Started with this early sunday morning and loved it. All 3 stories had a good setting. Serial killer, vampire and a ghost story were all good. Creepy music threw out helped it get intense.
19. Black Sunday*
Nice old school movie. Barbara Steele was amazing here
20. Return of the Living Dead
Holy Carp! Did I enjoyed this or what. Going in thinking this is goin

Re: The 8th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread

halloween<br

KillerCannibal in... Revenge of the October Horror Movie Challenge!

**************************************************************************************************** *

Finally! It feels like I've been on a horror hunger strike for the past month or two, anxiously anticipating this year's challenge. I practically view it as a job; or, an obligation, if you will. This mindset also makes buying more horror very easy, since my brain has already convinced itself that we NEED this stuff.

As usual, I'm setting a conservative goal of 31 films since my life is pretty fucking busy. But I have a strong resolve. Not so strong: my girlfriend, who is scared to death of "creepy" movies. But she's a great sport, so I anticipate no opposition from her during this most festive of months.

Since I hit a record high of 36 last year, I'm going to set a goal of 40 this year.

Now, on to the films!

October 1st

1. Ernest Scared Stupid (1993/John Cherry) Blu-ray - I skipped my yearly tradition of watching this last year, but thanks to Mill Creek I can now watch it for the first time in widescreen and HD. My gf thought it was terrible, but found some redeeming factors. I guess I'll still keep her...

Terror Trivia: The spinning effect when the trolls die is the same one used in Killer Klowns from Outer Space, which is fitting since the Chiodo Bros. did the FX work on both films.

2. Parents (1989/Bob Balaban) Netflix - I hadn't seen this movie since I was around 12 or 13, back when I rented the VHS from Wherehouse. This moved a little slower than I remembered (don't they all?), but I really dug the bizarre world Balaban created. The finale is all kinds of WTF action. Randy Quaid was a good actor when he wanted to be one. I'd love to know what was cut because the film feels very disjointed at times.

Terror Trivia: Have you ever seen Confessions of a Superhero? Hollywood & Vine's Superman impersonator Christopher Dennis claims Sandy Dennis, who plays the school psychologist here, is his real mother, despite the fact he can't prove it and no one knows of her having any children.

3. TerrorVision (1986/Ted Nicolau) Netflix - This seemed like a fitting follow-up to Parents. Ted Nicolau's eccentric sci-fi/horror rock-n-roll comedy is one of the greatest WTF? movies to come out of the '80s. And, mother of christ, was Dianne Franklin a smokin' hot piece of ass.

Terror Trivia: Thanks to Scream Factory, this should be available on Blu-ray in time for next year's challenge!

Oct. 2nd

4. Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982/Tommy Lee Wallace) Blu-ray - I fucking LOVE this movie. Haters can hate all they want, but this is one of the greatest underrated horror films of all-time. Atkins proves yet again that he's the man, the tone is sinister and foreboding, Carpenter/Howarth deliver a helluva score, Nelkin is a HPOA... what the hell is there NOT to like? A million thanks to Shout! for giving this a goddamn gorgeous BD release.

Terror Trivia: The name of the fictional town in the film, Santa Mira, was the same name used for the town in Siegel's Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Oct. 3rd

5. Monster Dog* (1984/Claudio Fragasso) Netflix - As a HUGE fan of Alice Cooper, I've been curious to see this for a number of years. Sure enough, the film, directed by infamous Troll 2 helmer Claudio Fragasso, is a disjointed, muddled mess full of terrible acting and bad FX work. But I can't say I didn't love watching Cooper trot around this environment.

Terror Trivia: Although it sounds close to his actual voice, Cooper didn't dub his lines for the English release of the film, so another actor provides his voice.

6. Pet Sematary (1989/Mary Lambert) Blu-ray - I'm not sure why it had been a few years since I last watched this. It's one of my favorite King films. Dale Midkiff is a mediocre actor, but Gwynne really holds this film together. Although, he is probably the worst friend ever. Lambert's direction is solid, and it's got such a gorgeous atmosphere throughout. Paramount's new Blu-ray is a sight - gorgeous, finely detailed image with equally impressive audio.

Terror Trivia: George A. Romero was originally set to direct, but bowed out when there was a delay in filming. Horror fans will note his longtime producer, Richard P. Rubinstein, worked on this film.

Oct. 4th

7. The Cabin in the Woods (2012/Drew Goddard) Blu-ray - I saw this opening weekend in theaters and recall liking it a lot. Tonight, second viewing and I realized it has some clear problems abound, but the overall picture is still a fun ride. I just really hated how the final moments turned into lots of talky exposition to explain the shit out of everything.

Terror Trivia: If you didn't already know - and who doesn't? - this sat on the shelf for over 3 years while MGM clawed its way out of bankruptcy. So did Red Dawn (2012), both of which star Chris Hemsworth. As an actor that would have to be seriously frustrating.

Oct. 5th

8. Prince of Darkness (1987/John Carpenter) Netflix - I decided to stream this off Netflix since they had it in HD, but it really didn't look significantly better than the DVD I own. This is one of those films I watch every year; absolutely love it. One of Carpenter's most underrated films, for sure. It presents many unique, complex ideas that I think most horror fans just can't fully grasp, or don't want to. Coincidentally enough, this is the second horror film I've watched featuring Alice Cooper. I'll have to check IMDb, but if he has enough credits I'm thinking sub-set challenge!

Terror Trivia: The church where this was shot is an historical landmark in downtown L.A., so not only is it still standing, but it looks exactly the same because they aren't allowed to alter it.

Oct. 6th

9. American Scary* (2006/John Hudgens) Netflix - This delightful little doc focuses squarely on the horror hosts who dominated late night TV from the '60s-early '90s. Many of the major players are covered (no Rhonda Shear?!?), with highlights from the likes of Svengoolie, Marvin, Elvira, Vampira, and many, many more. Having grown up watching some of these luminaries (though no local talent that I can recall), this was a joy because it reminded me of how a host could make even the worst films of my youth a blast.

Terror Trivia: I don't think it's been scientifically proven, but looking at Elvira's rack can cause your brain to go blank and y... sorry, thought about it again and forgot what I was saying. Horror!

10. The Shock Labyrinth* (2009/Takashi Shimizu) Blu-ray - It's been years since I last watched any J-horror. I, like many horror fans, got caught up in the boon of Asian horror in the early '00s, but that movement quickly wore out its welcome. I never saw "Ju-On: The Grudge", nor its American counterpart, but I figured this film might be worth a viewing. Meh. It ended up being convoluted, devoid of scares, and, well, just plain boring. At least it looked great. Maybe if I'd watched it in 3D that would've helped? Doubt it.

Terror Trivia: Star Ai Maeda was also in "Battle Royale". Other than that, I got nothin'.

Oct. 7th

11. Monster House* (2006/Gil Kenan) DVD - I heard this was good, so I bought it on DVD when it came out in 2006... and it's sat on my shelf ever since. My gf decided we should change that this year. I thought it was a fun film, cute, mildly scary. The animation, even for 2006, looks a bit crude. I loved the house design, though, especially when it goes on a rampage during the finale.

Terror Trivia: This was only the second film to be released in Real D's 3D format. Considering how ubiquitous 3D is now, it's funny to think that only 6 years ago it was a still-burgeoning fad, albeit one that had been seen in decades past.

12. Disney's Halloween Treat (1982/various) VHS - This special, which Disney aired first in 1982 and showed for many years after, is full of creepy clips from numerous Disney productions throughout the years, all hosted by a talking, foam pumpkin. I've had this VHS, which my parents dubbed off of a rental copy, for over 20 years. And it still plays just as I remember from all those years since gone. I haven't seen many TV specials that so perfectly capture the essence of the holiday quite like this.

Terror Trivia: More like Terror Soapbox, but Disney REALLY needs to start releasing some of these classic specials and films on DVD. Even if it was a burn-on-demand program, I guarantee many, many people would buy.

13. Island Claws (1980/Hernan Cardenas) VHS, then DVD - This film was recorded off of a USA Saturday Nightmares broadcast sometime around 1987. So, as you can imagine, age has caught up with it. My gf and I tried watching the VHS, but it looked so bad I had to switch over to a bootleg DVD I found at Midtown Comics in NYC last year. Why do I love this horrible movie? Simple: my grandfather co-stars in it. He plays Joe, a ship captain with a quick wit and a racist streak a mile long. It's a real stretch... I'd love to see it released in widescreen with a decent transfer, but I don't see that happening ever. Maybe I should buy the rights?

Terror Trivia: My parents swear I visited the set here, but since the production date listed on IMDb is 1980, and I was born in 1981, that seems pretty damn unlikely.

Oct. 9th

13 1/2. Goosebumps: The Werewolf of Fever Swamp* (1996/William Fruet) VHS - I found this at another Crown Books near my place. Since my gf and I both happened to grow up watching these, it felt fitting to buy. Plus, the oversized green clamshell case was sweet. This show was surprisingly creepy, with atmosphere making up for a limited budget and passable FX work. This tape contains both parts of a two-parter. Fun stuff.

Terror Trivia: The lead kid in this episode, Brendan Fletcher, went on to have a role in Freddy vs. Jason. The other lead kid, Michael Barry, had a role in Dawn of the Dead '04. My inner geek was both pleased and slightly embarrassed to have recognized both of them so easily. Who else would know this shit?

14 1/2. Re-Animator (1985/Stuart Gordon) Blu-ray - I love this movie; my gf hated it. Not sure why. What's there to not love? I'm on awe of how Gordon was able to edit this into a tight, tense sub-90 minute film with a wonderful ripped off score, and really terrific performances. And, of course, Barbara Crampton's spectacular tits. This Blu-ray is an appreciable upgrade over the last SE DVD, but not leaps and bounds better.

Terror Trivia: Can you believe there was a time that this film was OOP on DVD? And that I paid $55 for a copy of it on eBay? Those were the days, right? Right?

Oct. 10th (also: my birthday)

14 3/4. Tales from the Darkside - Trick or Treat* (1983/Bob Balaban) DVD - I found a copy of the first season of this show at Ameoba for $12 the other day. Seemed good enough to warrant a purchase. I was always more of a Tales from the Crypt kinda guy, but I'm familiar with this show and know of the talents involved. After watching this, I'm hooked. Like a more modern Twilight Zone - there's the hook, the twist, and a lot of good writing.

Terror Trivia: The pilot is curiously listed as airing over a year before the second episode. This is because it was originally aired as simply that -a pilot - and it wasn't until later on that the Tales intro was tacked on.

15. Tales from the Darkside - The New Man* (1984/Frank De Palma) DVD - This was an awesome example of how easy it can be to completely fuck with someone's head. It's almost maddening at times when you're watching it.

15 1/4. Tales from the Darkside - I'll Give You a Million* (1984/John Harrison) DVD - Decent episode, but this one starred Kennan Wynn, and everyone knows he can make just about anything worth watching.

Oct. 11th

Tonight, I went to the 40th Anniversary of Knott's Scary Farm. I've gone with the same group of guys for the last couple of years, always for free since one of them has the hook-up. It's usually only a decent evening, with most mazes being average. This year, they stepped things up a bit and featured some new mazes that were better than expected. The quality will never match Universal Studios, but they're improving in minor ways.

Oct. 12th

15 1/2. Tales from the Darkside - Pain Killer* (1984/Armand Mastroianni) DVD - Proof that even the weaker episodes of this series will be good; this one was pretty slow, and not too exciting. Lou Jacobi is one goddamn terrible actor. Farley Granger did chew some serious scenery, though.

15 3/4. Tales from the Darkside - The Odds* (1984/James Steven Sadwith) DVD - Tom Noonan once again proves that he can make anything he's in 50% more creepy. Danny Aiello, likewise, reminds us that there has never been a time he wasn't fat. The twist in this one doesn't make as much sense as it should, but, hey, it was the '80s!

16. Tales from the Darkside - Mookie and Pookie* (1984/Timna Ranon) DVD - Imagine if movies like Deadly Friend or Ghost in the Machine weren't creepy... then you've got this episode where a recently-deceased twin comes back to life through his computer. It was a bit of a snoozer.

17. Chopping Mall (1986/Jim Wynorski) DVD - Barbara Crampton's tits twice in one week? Sweet. This killer tech flick is so awesomely bad, with some great gore gags (that blonde's head) and a cast that perfectly embodies everything we loved about the '80s.

Terror Trivia: Originally titled Killbots, the film tested so poorly during advance screenings that it was retitled, had 15 min cut... and still tanked. Worse still, the current DVD was mastered using a VHS source since the rights were tied up in legal mumbo jumbo.

Oct. 13th

17 1/4. Tales from the Darkside - Slippage* (1984/Michael Gornick) DVD - David Patrick Kelly stars in this episode, which has a story reminiscent of "It's a Wonderful Life" (which is also referenced in the show). Of course, this is that concept with a darker twist.

17 1/2. Tales from the Darkside - Inside the Closet* (1984/Tom Savini) DVD - Now we're talking! Savini directs, and provides FX for, this creepy episode about a girl renting a room with a diminutive inhabitant who enters through a tiny door. The creature is a little goofy, but I never tire of seeing honest practical effects.

17 3/4. Tales from the Darkside - The Word Processor of the Gods* (1984/Michael Gornick) DVD - Stephen King wrote the story for this episode, which finds Bruce Davison as a man who suddenly has the power to literally rewrite his life using a custom computer. A lot of interesting concepts are introduced here. I could almost see this as material worthy of a feature film.

Oct. 14th

18 3/4. The Unnamable (1988/Jean-Paul Ouellette) Netflix - The first time I saw this film was in 1993, when my friend Scott & I rented the VHS and had the shit scared out of us for 90 min. I hadn't seen it since, but I've always had fond memories of watching it. Happy to report, it holds up pretty well for a film that was produced in practically no time at all.

Terror Trivia: The film was written in 7 days and shot in 3 weeks. When you also take into consideration the work done to design and sculpt the creature, that's a damn good turnaround.

19 3/4. Tenebre (1982/Dario Argento) Blu-ray - Argento was still untouchable during this period in his career. This film, possibly my favorite of his, features some seriously twisted killing, a phenomenal score from Goblin, and one of the best arterial sprays I've seen on film. Arrow's Blu-ray is nothing short of fantastic, with a beautiful image and solid - if not a little uneven - sound quality.

Terror Trivia: Argento has said that star Anthony Franciosa was the most difficult actor he has ever worked with.

20. Tales from the Darkside - A Case of the Stubborns* (1984/Gerald Cotts) DVD - What if your grandpa died, but the old curmudgeon was so stubborn that he refused to rest in peace? That's the plot of this story, which features a young Christian Slater as a Southern farm boy.

21. Frankenstein (1931/James Whale) Blu-ray - Pure perfection, this is one of the finest monster movies ever made. It's tight, thrilling, succinct, and features strong performances all around. This new Blu from Universal is exemplary.

Terror Trivia:A 20-minute test reel featuring Bela Lugosi as the Monster was shot in 1931, but the footage is now considered missing. At one point, Lugosi was in contention for the role, hence the test footage.

22. Bride of Frankenstein (1935/James Whale) Blu-ray - I like this film, but I'm not sure why it's held in such high regard. Whale didn't want to make it, Karloff didn't want the Monster to speak, at least 15-20 min of footage was cut, and The Bride appears on screen for less than 5 minutes.

Terror Trivia:The Bride is the only "classic" Universal monster to not kill anyone on-screen. She also has the least amount of screen time out of all of them.

Oct. 15th

22 1/4. Tales from the Darkside - Djinn, No Chaser* (1984/Shelley Levinson) DVD - This episode bored my gf, but I thought it was a well-written, satirical story. Adapted from Harlan Ellison, this one features some really strong performances from the two leads. And there's also one very large guest star, who only appears at the end.

22 1/2. Tales from the Darkside - All A Clone by the Telephone* (1985/Frank De Palma) DVD - I'd have to say this was my least favorite episode so far. Basically, imagine if your voice "lived" in the lines, while you still lived in real life. Now imagine that voice can call people and imitate you, causing you to be responsible for things you never really said. Interesting ideas, but the show was just a bore.

Oct. 16th

22 3/4. Tales from the Darkside - In the Cards* (1985/Theodore Gershuny) DVD - This was one of those episodes that I wanted more of; it could have been an hour. A woman unwittingly inherits a set of cursed tarot cards, and she can't seem to get rid of them no matter what she does. Good premise, but her final choice was so incredibly stupid.

23. Tales from the Darkside - Anniversary Dinner* (1985/John Strysik) DVD - It's obvious where this episode is going, and it takes forever to get there, but this twisted little tale is what makes this show so much fun to watch.

24 3/4. The Walking Dead - Days Gone Bye (2010/Frank Darabont) Blu-ray - I decided it was time for my gf to get into this show, especially with S3 just starting, so we cracked into my S1 set last night. I'm being extra nice and saving all the new eps on the DVR until we're caught up so we can watch together. How fucking sweet, right? This episode is just so incredibly awesome. Hell, the whole season is so short that it's really like one long epic zombie flick.

Terror Trivia: The actors who played zombies had to go through "zombie school" to learn how to walk properly. How awesome would that be?

25 1/4. The Walking Dead - Guts (2010/Michelle MacLaren) Blu-ray - This is a bit like a Dawn of the Dead homage (intentional?) with most of the action confined to a mall. Rick has already started to prove his worth to the group with this one. The guts when he's chopping up the body always looked so gnarly to me. Great FX work there.

25 3/4. The Walking Dead - Tell it to the Frogs (2010/Gwyneth Horder-Payton) Blu-ray - Rick finally hooks back up with his fam. Uh oh, Shane's pissed that he now: looks like a liar; lost the ass he was banging; has to compete for alpha male status again. He sure beat the fuck out of Ed, though.

Oct. 17th

26. Tales from the Darkside - Snip, Snip* (1985/Terence Calahan) DVD - Man, this was just bad on so many levels. But, thankfully, it was so bad that it ended up being kinda hilariously awful. Carol Kane is pretty cute at least, in some weird sort of way.

26 1/2. The Walking Dead - Vatos (2010/Johan Renck) Blu-ray - I don't know what the fuck this episode was supposed to be telling the audience. Mexicans who look and talk like gang bangers are people too? Ok. At least we got some stellar crimson carnage at the end.

27. The Walking Dead - Wildfire (2010/Ernest R. Dickerson) Blu-ray - The group finally gets moving after the assault on their camp. I love that they used composer James Murphy's music during their exit. It's powerful stuff.

27 1/2. The Walking Dead - TS-19 (2010/Guy Ferland) Blu-ray - How frustrating... you finally get to a fortified, underground, secure-as-fuck compound, and it's about to self-destruct at 5000 degrees. I love watching this show with my girl because she gets so freaked out. You should feel her little heart beat.

28 1/4. The Walking Dead - What Lies Ahead (2011/Ernest R. Dickerson/Gwyneth Horder-Payton) Blu-ray - Going into S2 for the second time, I'm very anxious to see how it plays out with no weekly breaks, or even a months-long break between halves. Fucking dumbass Carl has to pet the deer...

28 3/4. The Walking Dead - Bloodletting (2011/Ernest R. Dickerson) Blu-ray - The search for Sophia continues, but most of this episode was spent intorducing us to Hershel and some of his group. Otis & Shane were left in a very fucked situation, but we all know how that one turns out...

Oct. 18th

29. Tales from the Darkside - Answer Me* (1985/Richard Friedman) DVD - Man, oh, man, the lead actress in this one LOVES the sound of her own voice. She explains so much of what she's doing her name might as well have been Edna Exposition. Someone correct me, but is this the first example of a rotary phone that KILLS PEOPLE? Literally, it chokes someone to death with it's cord. Bitchin'!

29 1/2. The Walking Dead - Save the Last One (2010/Phil Abraham) Blu-ray - Shane finally goes Full Motherfucker in this one. The action with him and Otis at the high school was some excellent, highly intense zombie activity. And that reveal of their final moments... chilling.

30. The Walking Dead - Cherokee Rose (2010/Bill Geirhart) Blu-ray - This whole Sophia thing plays out much better with no weekly breaks, but this was the first "slow" episode of the second season. No real zombie action other than a waterlogged walker. That body rip was gnarly, though.

30 1/4. Goosebumps - My Hairiest Adventure* (1996/Michael Short) Cable - Decided to catch an episode of this show before bed. They always have such unique, creative plots. This one finds a kid suddenly turning very hairy, possibly into a dog. Ok, ok, he does turn into a dog.

Oct. 19th

30 1/2. Tales from the Darkside - The Tear Collector* (1985/John Drimmer) DVD - Man, this was so cheesy and lame I had a hard time paying close attention. It does feature Jessica Harper, though. I can't think of anything else I've seen her in other than Suspiria.

31 1/2. Beyond the Black Rainbow* (2010/Panos Cosmatos) Netflix - What. The. Fuck. did I just watch? Imagine Altered States on acid - and anyone who's seen that film knows it already plays like you're on acid. I'll say that despite a real strong plot and characters, the film is a visually sumptuous feast of early '80s aesthetics and architecture. And that score! It loses points for randomly deciding to become a slasher during the finale, though. The tonal shift is just a bit too jarring considering what preceded it.

Terror Trivia: Director Panos Cosmatos is the son of legendary director George P. Cosmatos, who has directed such classics as Rambo: First Blood Part II and Tombstone (although, it was really Kurt Russell who helmed that one).

32. The Walking Dead - Chupacabra (2011/Guy Ferland) Blu-ray - Darryl finally gets an episode to himself, proving through the course of it that he's one of the toughest guys on the show. Rooker teases us with a little Merle, although he's just fantasy. Fucking Andrea had to try being the hotshot with her rifle...

32 1/2. The Walking Dead - Secrets (2011/David Boyd) Blu-ray - I love Glenn's honesty and inability to keep secrets as soon as he's alone with Dale. "The barn is full of walkers, and Lori's pregnant". Best to just get it out there, see how it spreads in the wild. All I know is that shit is about to get real with the next episode.

Oct. 20th

33. The Walking Dead - Pretty Much Dead Already (2011/Michelle MacLaren) Blu-ray - The mid-season finale. This was a heavy episode, with all the in-fighting culminating with a massacre once the barn doors opened, revealing more than anyone expected. Loved Shane's "That is enough!" moment.

33 1/2. The Walking Dead - Nebraska (2012/Clark Johnson) Blu-ray - Rick reminds us at the end of this episode why he's the man running things. Lori reminds us that she is incapable of making good decisions.

34. The Walking Dead - Triggerfinger (2012/Bill Gierhart) Blu-ray - I love when this show has nighttime episodes; the tension is doubled. Hershel shows everyone that, while he might not like guns, he sure as shit knows how to fire them. We also get introduced to the show's most annoying character, Randall.

Oct. 21st

35. Vampire Circus* (1972/Robert Young) Blu-ray - Unexpected surprise time! Could this turn out to be my favorite movie of the challenge? I loved this Hammer production. Gorgeous sets, wonderfully vibrant, colorful lighting, intriguing plot, great actors... this had it all and then some. I really need to get Synapse's other Hammer titles.

Terror Trivia: According to a Hammer book, this film went over budget and actually had to trim some key scenes... and it still wound up being great!

36. Dead & Buried (1981/Gary Sherman) DVD - I had watched this DVD years ago, right around when it first came out, and I don't recall being impressed much. I decided to revisit it, and I'm glad I did because it's a nasty little film. I'm not sure why it was labeled a Video Nasty, since the movie isn't all that graphic, but it sure does have a sinister streak running through it. Even right up to the very end, it'll keep you guessing. I love films that go outside the typical genre box, which this does with ease.

Terror Trivia: Stan Winston handled all of the gore effects in the film save for one, the shot of the doctor's head dissolving from acid. Coincidentally enough, that was also the one FX shot in the film that I thought looked noticeably weaker than the rest. The man was a GOD in his field.

36 1/2. The Walking Dead - 18 Miles Out (2012/Ernest R. Dickerson) Blu-ray - I hate it when the show starts off with something from the end, then we have to see how everyone got there. It's a lazy decide used way too much on AMC shows. Great brawl here between Rick & Shane, with lots of solid zombie action peppered throughout.

37. The Walking Dead - Judge, Jury, Executioner (2012/Greg Nicotero) Blu-ray - This was the last bit of dancing around with the Randall thing before shit really went down. Well, we also lost Dale this episode, which anyone who follows the behind the scenes drama knows was likely a result of Jeffrey DeMunn being a staunch supporter of Darabont. Too bad, I loved his character...

37 1/2. The Walking Dead - Better Angels (2012/Guy Ferland) Blu-ray - Shane completely unravels here, leading Rick out with him to... right near the barn? I always thought it was funny that Shane appeared to be leading him so deep into the woods, but then they're right back where they started. Odd. Rick once again makes the hard decision and puts down a rabid dog.

38 1/2. Insidious (2010/James Wan) Blu-ray - I loved this the first time I saw it. Wan might have borrowed elements from other great genre pictures, but who doesn't? It had a wonderfully foreboding atmosphere, and the stakes felt high. Adding in the extra bits with Patrick Wilson's character only enriched the story further. It also scared the shit out of my gf.

Terror Trivia: Leigh Whannel, the film's writer, wrote a list of horror cliches to avoid in the script. I'd say he largely succeeded.

Oct. 22nd

39 1/2. Slither (2006/James Gunn) DVD - Why is this not on BD? I was one of the few to see this in theaters when it came out, and I've been a fan ever since. The humor is totally off-kilter; it's gross and slimy and covered in nasty sores. Gunn has a real knack for subverting genres.

Terror Trivia: I posted a shot of the title card on Instagram and tagged James Gunn in it. He "liked" it. I felt a small wave of accomplishment.

40. The Walking Dead - Beside the Dying Fire (2012/Ernest R. Dickerson) Blu-ray - Shit has hit the fan. The farm is overrun, and there's really nothing anyone can do to stop it. Nope, not even Hershel and his neverending shotgun. Carol proves she can't do much when attacked. Oh, hey, see ya later, Red Shirts.

40 1/2. The Walking Dead - Seed* (2012/Ernest R. Dickerson) Cable - Wow. This show just keeps getting better. Non-stop zombie action for the whiners! I can't say enough great things about this episode, or the show in general. There just isn't anything else like it on TV. Hershel's leg was gnarly!

Oct. 23rd

41. The Walking Dead - Sick* (2012/Bill Gierhart) Cable - I don't know how they do it, but this show just keeps getting better. Rick is a hardened piece of steel at this point. Like he said before the best moment of the episode, "Shit happens".

Oct. 24th

42. The Curse of Frankenstein* (1957/Terence Fisher) VUDU - How have I go so long in life without loving the shit out of everything Hammer? Once again, they knock it out of the park with another fantastic horror film, this one featuring the first pairing of the legendary Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.

Terror Trivia: Lee's make-up was created at the last minute when the casting process for his intended make-up failed. It had to be re-applied every day by artist Philip Leakey, from scratch, using only household items he had available.

43. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986/John McNaughton) Blu-ray - I put this on because my friend told my lady that his wife can't even hear the theme song without getting creepy vibes. I had to see if my chick could get through it, and she did. The video recorded footage of Henry & Otis' home invasion is still chillingly realistic.

Terror Trivia: The film was shot in 1986, but not released until 1989 because the producers had no clue how to market the film, fearing it was too "slow" for modern horror audiences.

Oct. 25th

44. The Invisible Man* (1933/James Whale) Blu-ray - I've seen both Carpenter and Verhoeven's interpretations of this classic, but never the film itself. I have now rectified that. Despite not actually being "seen", Rains delivers one bravura performance, full of vitriol and contempt. He's powerful on screen. Una O'Connor might be the most annoying woman in the history of annoying women in film. I wish she could have lived forever, to constantly play the role of Annoying Old Woman.

Terror Trivia:This was Rains' first sound film, as he had previously been a stage actor. He was selected by director James Whale because he had such a distinct voice, able to perfectly enunciate.

Oct. 26th

45. The Boogens* (1981/James L. Conway) Blu-ray - I didn't know much about this film going in, but I had heard sporadic praise over the years. Now that Olive has released it on BD, I was able to see what the fuss was all about. I really liked it. Great atmosphere, solid performances (even from the dog!), moody score, and a surprisingly decent creature design for such a low-budget affair.

Terror Trivia: The mine interiors were built in an old grocery store. You can tell they're sets, but they're done very well.

Oct. 27th

46. Creepshow (1982/George A. Romero) Blu-ray - I have watched this countless times and it never, ever gets old. Romero was such a prescient filmmaker in his glory days, and this is still quite possibly the finest example of turning a comic book into a feature film. I don't mean an adaptation necessarily; I'm talking literal translation of the page to the screen. The framing, lighting, color gels, dialogue, FX... everything here is top notch. This Blu-ray looks excellent - everything really pops.

Terror Trivia: Keep an eye out for a marble ashtray, which makes an appearance in all 5 segments including the wraparound.

Oct. 28th

47. The Town That Dreaded Sundown* (1976/Charles B. Pierce) Cable - There are few cinematic experiences better than finally watching a film that has been built up in your mind for over 20 years and it turns out to be EXACTLY what you wanted. I've been trying to watch this for as long as I can remember, but for one reason of another it never happened. Well, I managed to DVR a letterboxed, non-HD version off TCM and I could not have been more pleased with the film. I was completely enraptured by everything about the production. I can't wait for Shout! Factory's Blu-ray next year.

Terror Trivia: Based on a true story, the film ends just as the saga did in real life - the killer was never apprehended.

48. The Mummy* (1932/Karl Freund) Blu-ray - Still making my way through the Universal Monsters box set, this was another classic I'd yet to see. Of course, I'd seen all 3 deplorable films starring Brendan Fraser, but never this seminal flick. What can I say other than it's astounding? Karloff is just SO GOOD. I absolutely love Jack Pierce's makeup; so many iconic shots here it's ridiculous. The sets are ornate and exquisite.

Terror Trivia: 'Ardath Bey', the name Imhotep goes by throughout the film, is an anagram of 'Death By Ra'.

49. Beetlejuice (1988/Tim Burton) Blu-ray - I had not watched this film in a number of years - and my gf had never even seen it before! - so we popped on the new Blu-ray I just got and I really fell in love with it all over again. Burton was on fire here, showcasing all of his signature talents and style to create one helluva unique film. The production design alone is astounding, but it's Keaton as the eponymous bio-exorcist that really ties it all together.

Terror Trivia: Potential choices for Beetlejuice casting included Burton's first pick of Sammy Davis, Jr.; and producer Jon Peters suggestion of Sam Kinison. While both sound intriguing (especially Kinison), I don't see how either could have toppd Keaton.

49 1/2. The Walking Dead - Walk With Me* (2012/Guy Ferland) Cable - We have finally met The Governor. And Merle is back! This non-Rick's group episode introduced us to many new characters, some old faces, all of whom I expect to be meeting up at the prison sometime soon. I can't wait to see how Rick and The Gov get along...

Oct. 29th

50 1/2. George A. Romero's Deadtime Stories: Vol. 1* (2011/various) DVD - I knew this would be bad, but I had to review it for a site so I figured why not get it over with and count it for the challenge? I can tell Romero was going for an updated Tales from the Darkside vibe, but the production values are barely there, the acting is horrid, and the scripts are equally as inept. Savini directed the 3rd segment, which I was hoping would be a redeemer, but it fell flat.

Terror Trivia: Apparently this one wasn't bad enough, because there's also a Volume 2.

Oct. 30th

51 1/2. Corpse Bride (2005/Tim Burton) Blu-ray - I remembered not being a fan of this film the first time I saw it some years back, so I hoped this revisiting would provide a better reception. It didn't. In fact, I think it made me like it even less. The story is hardly thrilling, the puppet designs do nothing for me, I hated the songs, it's drab... not much to crow about.

Terror Trivia: At one point Victor is seen playing a Harryhausen piano, an obvious nod to stop motion pioneer Ray Harryhausen.

52 1/2. Frankenweenie (3D)* (2012/Tim Burton) Theatrical - I just can't say enough good things about this film. My chick and I loved it. The film references are far too numerous to mention, but suffice it to say, this is the best work Burton has done in a very long time. I can't wait to own it on BD.

Terror Trivia:This is the first Burton film in ages not to feature either Johnny Depp or Helena Bonham Carter. Considering the results, I'd call that a good thing.

53 1/2. The Funhouse (1981/Tobe Hooper) Blu-ray - Kudos to Arrow for giving this a buffed out Blu-ray (even though Shout! just recently did the same for the US market). Hooper's little film has a moderate cult following. I hadn't seen it until a few years back when a friend gushed endlessly over it. Once I did see it, and I really let myself get into it, I loved it.

Terror Trivia:The opening sequence is a clear homage to Halloween (1978); it's almost identical to that film's opening.

54 1/2. Drcula* (1931/George Melford) Blu-ray - I've heard so much about this film over the years that I was really anticipating this viewing. I thought it was... interesting. The actors really ham it up quite a bit, especially El Count himself. Fun to watch as a curiosity, but my go-to version will always be Bela's.

Terror Trivia: This film was shot on the same sets as the English language version, only at night. And director George Melford didn't understand a lick of Spanish.

Oct. 31st

55 1/2. Halloween (DC) (2007/Rob Zombie) Blu-ray - Fuck. This. Movie. I decided to revisit both of Zombie's films this year, thinking maybe time would be kind to them and I wouldn't see the total trainwrecks I did theatrically. Wrong. Seeing this again really cemented how little Rob knew of the Halloween franchise. It isn't surprising; the guy has said he doesn't like slasher films. Well, this piece of crap proves it.

Terror Trivia: One of my friend's conducted an interview with Rob a number of years ago in which he said remaking Halloween would be one of the stupidest things someone could do. Oh, sweet, sweet irony...

56 1/2. Halloween II (DC) (2009/Rob Zombie) Blu-ray - Fuck. This. Movie. Even. More. I saw this exactly once, at a drive-in, when it was released. And I thought it was one of the worst sequels EVER. That's not hyperbole. Again, I'd hoped that maybe it would play better for me now; it didn't. I can see what Rob wanted to do here, and there are some concepts I'll credit him for, but the film it a repulsive nightmarish mess.

Terror Trivia: This is the only film in which Michael not only walks around without his mask on, but he also speaks. Oy vey.

57 1/2. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966/Bill Melendez) Blu-ray - These kids sure are little assholes, but this timeless classic captures everything we all love about the season. It's short, sweet, and a must every year.

Terror Trivia: After this aired, kids from all over the country sent candy to Charlie Brown.

58 3/4. Tales from the Darkside - The Madness Room* (1985/John Hayes) DVD - This is exactly the kind of episode I love seeing this show produce. 20 minutes of intrigue, the promise of insanity, double crossing, death... one of the best from this season.

59. Tales from the Darkside - If the Shoes Fit...* (1985/Armand Mastroianni) DVD - And this was one of the worst. Political episode with a clear agenda and zero scares or interest.

60. Hocus Pocus* (1993/Kenny Ortega) DVD - My chick insisted we watch this. I'd never seen it, but ended up really enjoying it. It's a fun kids film that wonderfully captures the tone of Halloween. Great production design, with some great sets and shots throughout.

Terror Trivia: Bette Midler has said that of all the films she's done, this was her favorite.

61. Trick 'r Treat (2007/Michael Dougherty) Blu-ray - This is a film that I first watched in 2008, and I can honestly say I'll be watching it every year for the forseeable future. Simply the perfect Halloween film for lovers of the holiday.

Terror Trivia: Dougherty has teased a sequel for a few years now, but nothing has come of it, and I suspect nothing will.

62. Pumpkinhead (1988/Stan Winston) DVD - Ok, ok... so I decided at the last minute to squeeze in one more flick, which I spent most of the running time dozing through. But it's alright because I've seen this movie so many times that I could play it in my head.

Terror Trivia: I wish Stan Winston was still alive. Creature design just ain't what it used to be without him.

Re: The 8th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread



I remember very vividly being frightened in the dark, cavernous Keswick Theater in the summer of 1979. For whatever reason, I accompanied my mother to a showing of Ridley Scott's Alien that day; I was a little too young for such a movie. This event kept me from being interested in a the horror genre for over twenty years. With few exceptions, I skipped the genre for decades. I look upon the Horror Challenge each year as a chance to fill in some of the gaps in horror film watching.

October 1st

1. Cabin in the Woods New!

One of the highlights of the year for me had to be this one. This horror mythology movie kicks it into overdrive and beyond for an amazing finale.

2. Aliens

Each year I start off the first night with a favorite or meaningful movie. Cameron's Aliens was movie I saw in the theaters opening night in July 1986. The movie was packed, I had to sit apart from my brother who was usual theater companion in the 80s. As the situation becomes apparent and the marines stalk into the sublevels of the terraforming station, I reached a point where I left the theater to catch my breath. As much as the first movie had scared me as a young boy, this one confirmed that this was a genre that could still scare me. Experiences like this one continue my aversion to the genre.

3. Troll

Troll is a favorite of Mrs. Beebs. She has no fear of supernatural horror movies at all. This one isn't so much scary as it is creepy (and campy).

4. Return of the Living Dead

October 3
5. Bram Stoker's Dracula

October 5
6. Frankenweenie New!

Caught Burton's latest in the theater opening day during a week off from work. Wow, really liked this monster movie lovefest.

7. Walking Dead S2E1/S2E2

I can't believe I had not seen this one.

13. I Spit On Your Grave

October 7
14. Night of the Comet
15. Dexter E1/E2 New!
16. Hellraiser

I know full well the Hellraiser story and was sure I had seen this movie at one point but the movie was not familiar. Also, this is definitely not my cup of tea.

26. Hotel Translyvania New!
27. House at the End of the Street New!

Once again, we went to the drive during the Horror Challenge for a horror movie. We lucked out this year and scored a double feature for the count. I highly recommend supporting your local drive-in, if you have one. We go 5-10 times a season and it's always fun.

Mrs. Beebs says this one is Dy-no-mite! Actually, this one was quite entertaining and something I will likely watch again in future years.

44. X-Files: The Hand that Kills/X-Files: Never Again
45. X-files: Unrequited

October 29
46. Maniac

This is a personal favorite for Mrs. Beebs and I. I added this to the collection recently to ensure we could see this one. We tried to watch this firs the last few years and the DVD from the Library was bad, or the streaming option we had would not work.

October 31
47: Sinister New!

Really finished this one at 46.5. I needed one more X-Files episode to round out #45 but did not get around to it. Not nearly as many as I should have watched, but still a decent number. Next year I will kick it up a notch and get in triple digits (or close) again.

Thanks again for another great year of horror movie watching.
