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



Getting to know LickTheABCs (ME!!)

How'd you get into horror and what was your first film? - Well, these two go hand-in-hand. When I was younger, around 12 or so, I went to the local video store and would look through racks and racks of VHS tapes. I didn't really look for anything particular, just something that looked interesting. One day, I was shopping with my mother and while going up and down the aisles, I came across this. Needless to say, I begged my mom to rent it for me and after agreeing to do chores for the next 30 years (it really only lasted a month..) she rented it for me. After that, I was in love.

Quick, without thinking, what's your favorite horror movie? - Favorite movie and favorite horror movie are one-and-the-same: Evil Dead II!!

Of all the various sub-genres of horror, which is your go-to? - I've watched way, way too many terrible Zombie flicks in my life which must mean something. So, if I have a gun to my head (which realistically, should be at the zombie's and not mine..) I'll take zombie movies for 200, Alex.

Last horror movie that truly creeped you out? - It's been a while. I don't get creeped out easily. Um, if I had to pick one, It would be this image/scene from the original Ju-On.

Other useless facts: I came up with the October Horror Movie Challenge slogan!!


10/1

1. The Cabin in the Woods - Dir: Drew Goddard. Written: Joss Whedon. Strarring: Thor, Shaggy, Blonde girl only casted because she agreed to show her rack, Winifred Burkle <3 *** - Fantastic send-up of the horror genre. Keep in mind though, I'm a Whedon fanboy to begin with, but there's so much in here it's worth many viewings just to pick it all out.
2. Dexter ["Are You...?"]

10/2

3. The Descent - Dir: Neil Marshall. Written: Neil Marshall. Starring: a buncha really hot women with accents who I would love to have a seven-way with. **** - I don't re-watch this flick too much because it drives my claustrophobia crazy but every time I do, I'm quite blown away by it. While the story itself is ordinary, it's told in an extraordinary way.

10/5

4. Silent House - Dir: Chris Kentis, Larua Lau. Written: Laura Lau. Starring: the one member of the Olsen family that I'd actually like to pee in her butt. ** - I haven't seen the original French film, but this film wasn't anything super spectacular. It didn't help that about halfway through the first act, I had already figured out the beat-for-beat story so I became disinterested pretty quickly.

10/6

5. Grave Encounters 2
6. Lovely Molly

10/8

7. Detention
8. Dexter ["Sunshine and Frosty Swirl"]
9. Death Proof

Most Underrated Film: Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon (2006)

September 30th:

1. House of 1000 Corpses (2003): Sheri Moon Zombie's ass-crack is otherworldly!
2. The Thing (2011): Not bad for a non-Prequel, Prequel. Felt like The Thing (1982) + New final act.
3. Mutant Girls Squad (2010): Chainsaw Anus? Katana Titties? I have a new crush on Yuko Takayama.

October 1st:

4. A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985): What did the FX team do to those poor dogs?
5. A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988): The cockroach transformation scene! All hail 'Screaming Mad George'!
6. [REC]³ Génesis (2012): Symbolic death of POV Horror? Sponge John? Leticia Dolera is gorgeous!

October 2nd:

7. A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989): Interesting visually, but both the story and Kelly Jo Minter are obnoxious.
8. Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers (1988): Tits, great death scenes and a Facts of Life reference!
9. Killjoy (2000): More clowns who 'Pop & Lock' + all-seeing hobos, less of everything else.

October 3rd:

10. ATM (2012): Is that the kid from Drake & Josh? Alice Eve needs to be in everything.
11. Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991): Awful and a complete product of the times. This one was a chore to sit through!
12. Shaun of The Dead (2004): David is a twat, but this film sure ain't!
13. Near Dark (1987): My all-time favorite Vampire film. I love revisiting this one!

October 4th:

14. Dead Set: Episode 1 (2008): Don't stop the car for anyone! Riq (Riz Ahmed) is already annoying!
15. Dead Set: Episode 2 (2008): Pippa's (Kathleen McDermott) voice is like nails on a chalkboard. Loving the banter between her and Patrick (Andy Nyman).
16. Dead Set: Episode 3 (2008): Why can't Zombies swim? Kelly (Jaime Winstone) is so dreamy!
17. Dead Set: Episode 4 (2008): At this point, I like the main story/characters over the 'other' story/characters. Loving how much Andy Nyman plays up his character.
18. Dead Set: Episode 5 (2008): The finale was absolute chaos! Final shot was a fantastic end to a fantastic mini-series.
19. Children of The Corn (1984): Team Corn! I don't think 'He Who Walks Behind The Rows' would approve of those Bell Bottoms.
20. Insidious (2010): Creepy visuals, but the film's plot gets convoluted pretty damn quick.
21. C.H.U.D. (1984): Unreviewable. Sometimes I forget that Daniel Stern ('Home Alone') is in this!

October 5th:

22. Feed (2005): Creepy imagery, yet extremely boring. Apparently, holding a gun means you have to have a monologue.
23. Jason X (2001): So many Belly Buttons in the future!
24. Hatchet II (2010): Vernon (Colton Dunn) is hilarious and the gore is top notch!
25. Clownhouse (1989): Victor Salva is sketchy and clowns are creepy, but what else is new?

October 6th:

26.
Trick 'r Treat (2007): Anna Paquin is too fine.

October 7th:

27. Puppet Master: The Legacy (2003): 98% footage from all previous films, 2% new/terrible footage. There is one tie to previous films, but it felt like a cheap way to end the series.
28. Puppet Master: Axis of Evil (2010): Not a bad reboot for the series. The ninja puppet isn't that great of a design. Beth (Jenna Gallaher) is cute as a button!
29. Halloween (2007): Who gives a child in a mental institution a metal fork? First time watching the 'Theatrical Cut' in a very long time.

October 8th:

30.
Waxwork (1988): Who knew Sarah (Deborah Foreman) was so kinky?
31. Night of The Living Dead (1968): Classic! Ben (Duane Jones) really carries this film.
32. The Gateway Meat (2008): Copious amounts of gore and other things meant to incite a reaction. My only reaction was boredom.

October 9th:

33. Stacy (2001): Like all campy Japanese films, this one is a bit strange. Solid gore FX. Blues Campbell!
34. The Cabin In The Woods (2011): All the makings of a Horror classic. Love that finale!
35. Cube (1997): Love this film, but dislike Maurice Dean Wint's (Quentin) performance.

October 10th:

36. Halloween II (1981): First time watching the 'TV-Version'. Works even without all the gore. 'Julie's full of sugar!'
37. The Descent (2005): One of my favorite Horror films of the past 10 years. Alex Reid (Beth) is too cute!
38. Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006): So much of the script & writing of this film are absolutely brilliant! Underrated! Nathan Baesel (Leslie Vernon) is fantastic!
39. Dead Snow (2009): Nazi Zombies! One scene reminded me of Cliffhanger (1993) with the addition of intestines.

October 11th:

40. Maléfique (2002): French Black Magic! This film still manages to take me by surprise, even after multiple viewings. Rewarding for patient viewers! Could have done without Hippolyte Picus (Didier Bénureau) though.

October 16th:

41. Frankenweenie (2012): Gorgeous film! It's not perfect by any means, but this is Burton's best film since Big Fish (2003). I loved the reference to The Bride of Frankenstein (1935).

October 17th:

42. Saw: The Final Chapter (2010): Why are the cops so dumb in these films? The first trap in this film is genius!
43. Frankenhooker (1990): 'You're like cats with catnip!'

October 25th:

44.
Intruder (1989): This one was a bit disappointing and ran a bit too long. At least it had FX by KNB!

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

In for my 7th year. Keeping my usual goal of 31...anymore is probably just not feasible.

September 30th after dark extra:
0.5) Friday the 13th: The Series: Shadow Boxer (S1:E8) (1987) - The First Season DVD ***
I grew up loving this series, and thanks to the DVD sets can now revisit them any time. The show overall holds up fairly well. Sure, there is lots of cheese, but there are some really scary parts and great ideas throughout. The show really was groundbreaking at the time, and it is amazing what they got away with and what they were able to do with their budget. It's hard to believe this show is 25 years old now. This was a great episode with a cursed pair of boxing gloves as the antique of the week. Very fun end to this one.

October 1:
1.5) Machete (2010) - HD on DVR **** (new to me) *WILDCARD #1*
For some reason I never got around to picking up Machete when it was new. Truthfully I was shying away from it a bit after paying full price for Hobo With a Shotgun and then being sadly disappointed by it. When I saw Machete playing on one of the free preview weekends for Cinemax (or one of those channels), I figured I'd record it and finally give it a shot. Boy am I glad I did! This was everything I hoped Hobo would be. Way over the top in every way and just a load of fun. Will be picking up the Blu ASAP. Wish I wouldn't have waited so long to see it. That said I should probably give Hobo another try, just in case I simply wasn't in the right mood when I watched it.

*Just a quick edit here. I personally feel that Machete has enough horror elements to count as a horror movie, even if that isn't its primary genre. However, it was pointed out to me that most of the other participants do not believe it is a horror movie at all. Therefore, I am using a wildcard to avoid any controversy or ill will.

October 2:
2) 666 Park Avenue: Pilot (S1:E1) (2012) - HD on DVR ***1/2 (new to me)
Interesting. It didn't grab me quite as much as American Horror Story did right off the bat, but it did leave me intrigued enough to tune in next week. Terry O'Quinn, yet again, is the man. I like the setting and some of the characters. The others seem as though they could be good once they get comfortable in their roles. I see a lot of promise here. We'll see where it goes!

October 3:
3) Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (2010) - Blu-Ray *** (new to me)
Honestly, I don't know how I feel about this movie. In some ways, I loved it. In some ways, I didn't. I can't remember the last time I watched something that I was this confused as to my own feelings about it. Very strange. I loved the atmosphere, setting, directing, sound design, etc. The story was mostly good, though there were some huge holes and a few frustrating parts. I mostly liked the characters and acting, especially as the film went on. The young actress that played Sally was amazing in making us feel her pain and frustration. I felt an overwhelming sadness for this poor girl that nobody really wanted. I loved how her relationship with Kim evolved. I both loved and hated the creatures. At times they were very creepy, but at others we saw too much of them and the CGI kind of ruined it. They also seemed to cross the line into the slapstick from time to time, taking the creepiness away. I don't know...I just can't quite put my finger on this one. I think the bottom line is that it comes so very close to being a great, scary film, but never quite gets there.

October 4:
4) Ghoulies (1985) - DVD *1/2 (new to me)
This was not so good...and not what I expected at all. I liked some of the actual Ghoulies, but they just didn't cause as much destruction as I thought they would. This one just dragged on and seemed to take itself a little to seriously for this type of movie. I was expecting it to be a little more over the top. Had a hard time staying awake through this one, especially the first half.

October 5:
5) Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers (1988) - DVD ****
I love these movies. The first is good, but for me 2 and 3 are great. Angela is such a riot. I wish they would have made a few more with her (and not that abomination of a "Return" movie...ack).

October 8:
5.5) 666 Park Avenue: Murmurations (S1:E2) (2012) - HD on DVR **** (new to me)
I'm definitely liking this so far. Great characters, story, and setting. I like where it is going and am looking forward to seeing more!

October 9:
6.5) The Cabin in the Woods (2011) - Blu-Ray ****1/2 (new to me)
Wow...that was completely NOT what I expected! I purposely stayed away from too many trailers and reviews. I went in pretty much expecting something along the lines of Evil Dead. I've never been so happy to be wrong! At first I was a little confused and wasn't sure if I liked where it was going, but once it got rolling I had a ball with it. The humor and story all worked really well for me, although I can see how some people may not appreciate it. Great, great movie that I can't wait to watch again!

October 11:
7.5) Ghoulies II (1988) - DVD **1/2 (new to me)
This was a BIG step up from the first one. Way cheesy, way fun. This is what I was hoping for from the first, so I'm glad I gave the second a shot.

October 12:
8.5) Waxwork (1988) - DVD ***1/2 (new to me)
Had to hunt this one down after hearing so much talk about it in the discussion threads. I lucked out and found the 8 pack of goodness for $5 at Best Buy and tossed it in the player. What a great treat! I love cheesy '80s horror, and this one didn't disappoint. Now to find the sequel...

October 13:
9.5) The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) - Blu-Ray *****
Watched this for the first time about a year ago and fell completely in love with it. I finally decided to show it to my four year old daughter who loves all things spooky. She was pretty quiet and wide eyed until about a quarter of the way in, when she loudly declared "This is AWESOME!". Indeed...this is awesome. This is halloween!

10.5) Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954) - Blu-Ray ***** (new to me)
My UK coffin box set finally showed up and I gleefully tore into it. I have only seen a couple of these films before, despite loving the characters and owning most of the legacy collections. I've been meaning to watch Creature for WAY too long. I shouldn't have waited so long, but it was worth the wait! A classic in every way. Instant love. Can't wait to dig into the rest of the box!

October 14:
11) The Walking Dead: Seed (S3:E1) (2012) - HD on DVR ****1/2 (new to me)
Great kick off to the season. It was a little jarring that they skipped so far ahead. I would have liked to see a bit of what happened between the end of season 2 and "now". The scene of them exploring deeper into the prison was pretty freaking intense. As always, it left me wanting more. Amazing series. On a somewhat related note, Comixology ran a half price sale, so I splurged and bought the entire comic series up to now. Can't wait to dig in!

October 15:
11.5) 666 Park Avenue: The Dead Don't Stay Dead (S1:E3) (2012) - HD on DVR **** (new to me)
This one is definitely staying solid for me, and of course the plot thickens. I would have liked to see the story of the news journalist go a little further and have her attempting to control her creation through rewrites. Not bad at all as-is though. Certain motivations are starting to become clear. Still really enjoying this.

October 17:
12.5) Chopping Mall (1986) - DVD **1/2 (new to me)
Good cheesy '80s fun.

October 18:
13.5) Psycho (1960) - Blu-ray (with commentary) *****
Still one of the best films ever made, horror or otherwise. I watched with the commentarty track by Stephen Rebello, author of "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho". Pretty good track overall...tons of information and never felt too dry.

14) American Horror Story: Asylum: Welcome to Briarcliff (S2:E1) (2012) - HD on DVR **** (new to me)
I love that AHS is back and that they decided to go with a completely different story each season. It's off to a great start and I am anxious to see more. Spooky location and some great characters already. I enjoyed the jumps between present day and the past. Good stuff.

October 20:
15) Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954) - Blu-ray (with commentary) *****
Watched Creature again, this time with the commentary track by Tom Weaver. I really enjoyed this track and the time flew by. Lots of great info and trivia.

16) Chernobyl Diaries (2012) - Blu-Ray *** (new to me)
Pretty fun movie with mostly enjoyable characters in an awesome setting. This one was filled with all of the cliches and bad decisions seen time and time again, yet it was still fun to watch. Not great, but certainly not bad either. I jumped like a little girl at the first jump scare...LOL!

October 21:
17) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) - Blu-Ray (with commentary) *****
Nightmare has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. I know it inside and out, yet always find it fun and scary. I watched this time with the cast and crew commentary. There were many participants, all recorded seperately so unfortunately no fun interaction. There was a ton of information, however, and some great stories about the trials and tribulations of making Nightmare come to life.

17.5) The Walking Dead: Sick (S3:E2) (2012) - HD on DVR ***** (new to me)
More awesome zombie action. Great change of pace from last season, and I love the prison environment so far.

18) 666 Park Avenue: Hero Complex (S1:E4) (2012) - HD on DVR **** (new to me)
I continue to enjoy this show. The characters are really coming into their own. Terry O'Quinn is in his perfect role and makes the show what it is. I'm not sure how far they can take this, but I can't wait to find out.

October 22:
19) The Mummy (1932) - Blu-Ray **** (new to me)
Another Universal monster classic that I finally got around to seeing. The Mummy is a great film all around. Karloff is perfect in the roll and the make-up is excellent. The restoration on this film is wonderful too. Can't wait to see more.

October 23:
20) Slaughter High (1986) - DVD **1/2 (new to me)
More '80s. More cheese. Delicious, delicous cheese. A few related questions...why would a high school have a bathtub? Why would the water to said bathtub still be on after the school has been closed down for 5 years? And most importantly, why would someone in this situation decide it would be a good time to take a bath? Other than the obvious...to conveniently get some skin in the movie...LOL!

October 24:
20.5) American Horror Story: Asylum: Tricks and Treats (S2:E2) (2012) - HD on DVR ****1/2 (new to me)
Another great episode. Love it!

October 27:
21) Mockingbird Lane (2012) - HD on DVR **** (new to me)
I was hesitant about this one, but I'll be honest, it was a blast. I am really keeping my fingers crossed that it is picked up for a full season. The cast all worked perfectly for me, especially Grandpa who was by far the star of the show. This one could be great if picked up and given a chance to fully develop.

October 28:
21.5) The Walking Dead: Walk With Me (S3:E3) (2012) - HD on DVR ***** (new to me)
Great introduction to the Governor. While I love following Rick and company, it was a nice change of pace to see other survivors.

22) 666 Park Avenue: A Crowd of Demons (S1:E5) (2012) - HD on DVR **** (new to me)
All kids of stuff breaking loose. Awesome. My only hesitation is I'm not sure how I fell about Jane being related to some of the ghosts. Other than that, another great episode.

October 29:
23) Underworld: Awakening (2012) - Blu-Ray ***1/2 (new to me)
While it is always good to see some vampire/lycan butt-kicking, especially when Kate Beckinsale is involved, this one unfortunately seemed to be a step down from the others. I guess I wasn't a huge fan of humans being the main threat in this one, and I missed some of the "mythology" stuff from the other entries. Still, even bad Underworld is very, very fun, so no complaints. I would also like to hereby nominate the thawing scene towards the beginning of the movie to be one of the great moments in surround sound history. Freaking awesome!

October 30:
24) Trick 'r Treat (2007) - Blu-Ray *****
This has become as much a part of the Halloween season to me as any other film. It captures the feel and atmosphere perfectly. I love everything about it. That Sam I am, that Sam I am...I do so love that Sam I am!

October 31:
25) Dracula (1931) - Blu-Ray *****
The restoration on this Blu-ray is so good that I almost want to mark this one as being new to me! This all time classic is one of my favorites, and always a welcome sight during the Halloween season. This is the first time (in recent years at least) that I have watched without the Phillip Glass score. As much as I like what they did with that score, I think I prefer the film without it. The stark silence really adds to the atmosphere. I switched back and forth a few times, and thought the score took away some of the eeriness.

25.25) It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966) - DVD *****
It just wouldn't be Halloween without the Great Pumpkin.

25.5) Scared Shrekless (2010) - DVD ****
Honestly, I'm throwing this here because I know we sat down and watched this sometime this month, but I can't remember exactly when. Our family love these characters, and love Halloween, so you put them together and you have an instant classic! Also had to watch the best "extra" on the disc...the Shrekified version of "Thriller". Awesome!

26.5) Halloween (1978) - Blu-Ray *****
Can't really say much about this one that hasn't already been said! Like visiting an old friend.


List complete!
Total count: 26.5 (20 total movies, 14 TV)
First time count: 17.5 (12 movies, 11 TV)

Individual views: 34 (13 Blu, 9 DVD, 12 DVR)
First time views: 23
Repeat views: 11

Commentary tracks: 3 (Psycho, CFTBL, NoES)
Decades: 1930s: 2, 1950s: 2, 1960s: 2, 1970s: 1, 1980s: 8, 1990s: 1, 2000s: 1, 2010s: 17

Biggest Surprises: Mockingbird Lane was actually pretty great. 666 Park Avenue has quickly become a must-see for us. Machete was way better than anticipated. Cabin in the Woods exceeded our hopes. The $5 8-pack I picked up just for Ghoulies 3 ended up being loaded with fun '80s cheese...and we didn't even get to Ghoulies 3 yet!

Biggest Disappointments: Ghoulies had way less Ghoulies than it should have. Thankfully 2 stepped it up nicely. Still not completely sure how I feel about Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. Was also hoping for a little more out of Chernobyl Diaries, but got about what I was expecting.

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

Corey31's 4th Annual Horror Challenge Let Down List
Movie Total: 7
TV Total: 7
Combined Total: 14

Movies

Monday October 1st
1. Jaws (1979) * - 9 / 10
Great classic film and another I can finally check off my shame list. Really enjoyed it throughout.

Wednesday October 3rd
2. Pandorum (2009) * - 6.5 / 10
Underrated Sci-Fi Horror film from a few years ago. Nothing revolutionary or something I will go back to as an October tradition but was good while I watched it.

Monday October 8th
3. Red Riding Hood (2011) * - 3 / 10
Has a few cool moments but overall completely forgettable and I would not recommend it. This coming from a fan of Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman

Sunday October 21st
4. Dracula (1931) * - 8 / 10
Another film off the shame list, the entire reason to see this film is Bela Lagosi, Without him I don't think it would have the acclaim or recognition it has now.

5. Frankenstein (1931) * - 8.5 / 10
Watched as a double bill in a theatre with Dracula. I personally enjoyed Frankenstein a little more as I thought it was more suspenseful.

Tuesday October 23rd

Some extremely creepy gore effects in this one.

Wednesday October 24th
7. Zombieland (2009) - 9 / 10

I had never seen it in a glorious 35mm print on a big screen before (just blu-ray in a theater a couple of times), and certainly not like this, because WILFORD BRIMLEY - that's right: BLAIR HIMSELF! - was in attendance!!! He did an awesome Q&A afterwards, and was very appreciative of the fans. Oddly enough, he admitted he had NEVER seen the movie himself! I was front row, and literally TWO feet from him during the Q&A. Needless to say, I felt like a little fanboy being that close to him (for those that don't know, THE THING is my absolute favorite film OF ALL TIME without question - ask me sometime about my THING collection; including a six foot piece of the actual screen-used helicopter blade)... /geekout

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

Shooting for 110 movies. Came close to 100 last year. Going to try to hit the challenges as well this year. Any first time viewings will have * next to it. Blu-Ray movies will be in blue while DVDs will be in red. Theater movies will be in green and anything watched on TV will be in purple.


Movie List
Spoiler:

OCTOBER 1st
1. Drag Me To Hell: Have not seen this film since the theaters. For a comedy film, it's great. Sam Raimi is a great comedy director who uses some low budget CG and effects. As a horror flick, I laughed more than anything else. Some great one-liners, but just doesn't do it for me as a horror film. Still give it 3/5 stars, though.
2. The Ward: Thought it was my first time watching it and then once I got towards the ending, I remembered watching it last year. Good ending, but the middle just cannot hold up. A better movie like this would be Girl, Interrupted. I'll give it 2 out of 5 stars.
3. The Last House on the Left (2009): Remake was very well done. I really enjoyed it, especially the acting and story to it. One of the better remakes of films out there, plus the women are hot. Give it 4 out of 5 stars.
4. *The Last House on the Left (1972): I may have seen this before, but just never paid attention to it, so I'm counting it as a first view. I always find it hard to get into older movies because budgets are usually less, graphics are way different, the style of clothing isn't my thing, etc. So it took me a good while to get into it. It was especially hard because I saw the remake first and really liked the way the remake was done, so it was hard to watch because the criminals, especially the young boy, just were not as good. Overall, though, I did get the feel of the movie and I'd give it a solid 3 out of 5 stars.

OCTOBER 2nd
5. The Birds: Movie picked up extremely slowly and the ending was just eh. Watched this as a child and liked it, but just could not hold my attention as an adult. Give it 2.5 out of 5 stars.
6. Thir13en Ghosts (2001): I always enjoy this movie. Matthew Lillard has become one of my all-time favorite actors. Worthy of a watch every year. 3.5 out of 5 stars.

OCTOBER 3rd
7. *Village of the Damned (1960): Really decent film. Did take some time to pick up, but liked the ending of the film. A good 3 out of 5 stars film.
8. *Children of the Damned: Not as good as Village, but still a really decent film. Loved the events leading up to the ending. A good 3 out of 5 stars film.
9. Repo the Genetic Opera: Really great film. I'm a fan of rock musicals and horror, so this was perfect for me. Paris Hilton was very good in her role and I love me the girl from Spy Kids and Bill Moseley. Sarah Brightman and Terrance Zdunich were incredible as well. A great 4 out of 5 stars film.
10. *Village of the Damned (1995): Not that bad of a remake. Got my attention and the kids were creepy. Decent 2.5 out of 5 stars.

OCTOBER 4th
11. They Live: Best action scene in a horror film. I love Piper as well. Really interesting story and lots of fun. 4 out of 5 stars.
12. *Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Decent film. Never really watched the show, but thought the movie was not too bad. There were some parts that were dumb, which is typical in a teenage horror flick, but the Pee-Wee death scene was classic. That alone I'll give 2.75 out of 5 stars.
13. The Cabin in the Woods: Really good film. Stoner is probably the best horror movie character (good guy) of all-time. Really good lines and interesting concept. 4.5 out of 5 stars.

OCTOBER 5th
14. The Thing (1982): There's some good horror elements to this film, but it just doesn't live up to the hype that the film gets. It is a pretty good story, but seems to drag on during certain parts of the film. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
15. *Prince of Darkness: There's nothing good I can say about this film. I know what the film is about, but couldn't say much about the film besides if you need something to put you to sleep, this is it. 1 out of 5 stars.
16. House on Haunted Hill (1999): Not that bad for a remake. Like the nod to Mr. Price in it too. A nice 2.5 out of 5 stars for this film.
17. *I Spit on Your Grave (2010): Amazing remake. The female lead is extremely hot and most of the villains are good actors. The only bad thing are the deaths. Some of them are just unbelievable and not like the original. I do like the last death, though. Decent 3 out of 5 stars film.

OCTOBER 6th
18. *Frankenweenie: This movie is TRASH. I don't know why Disney and Burton continue to put out trash. SO GLAD this movie did not make any money and I have no clue why it got such high reviews. There's some decent art work, but the characters, story, etc have all been done before. 1.5 out of 5 stars just for the designs.
19. Evil Dead 2: Really good film. Can't believe I just watched the Evil Dead series last year. Lots of fun, blood, and laughs. The only annoying thing is the beginning where they change the story. Give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

OCTOBER 7th
20. Behind the Mask: Always a good film to watch. Very unique and an interesting story. Such a damn shame they did not get the funds to do a sequel. Great 4 out of 5 stars film.
21. Final Stab Not very unique and the acting is pretty sub-par. Still, if you like a slasher and 90's horror flicks, this would be good for a view. 2 out of 5 stars.
22. The Surge: I highly recommend this film to anyone who likes cheap, low budget horror flicks. This was before The Chronicle and ahead of its time. Decent cast, funny colors for the powers, a must watch film. Only bad thing is the typical outcast characters and everyone looks like they can be a model. 4 out of 5 stars.
23. *Prom Night (1980): Was expecting more from a Jamie Lee Curtis film. Horrible lightening and terrible cast killed the movie. The start of the movie was a bit freaky and enjoyed the dance, but that's about it. 1.5 out of 5 stars.

OCTOBER 8th
24. *The Legend of Sorrow Creek: I honestly could not tell you much about the film. Semi confusing plot, sub-par acting, but what can you expect on an 8 pack DVD film set? Was hoping for a couple of scares and some blood, but really only one good scene. 1.5 out of 5 stars.
25. Ghost Ship This movie probably has the best opening sequence out of any film. Add in Quinn from Dexter and you got a really decent movie. A must play every year. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
26. Night of the Living Dead (1990): Anytime you have Bill Moseley and Tony Todd, it's a great film. Loved the acting of the film, but the ending isn't nearly as good as the original. Still, a must watch film. 3.5 out of 4 stars.
27. Night of the Living Dead (1968): The story is much better than the remake, but I'll take most of the acting in the remake than the original. If they could combine the two movies, they would easily have the best horror film out there. 3.5 out of 5 stars.

OCTOBER 9th
28. *Day of the Dead (1985): I don't know why people think this movie is so good. Really dragged on and on as well as the filming and acting were just awful. The end of the movie got good, but strange ending as well. 1.5 out of 5 stars.
29. Otis: This is an interesting film. Some fat bastard kidnaps girls and tries to recreate a high school prom moment. Lots of good one liners and decent acting. I'll give it a 3 out of 5 stars and say it is a must watch at least once.
30. *Young Frankenstein: Finally got around to seeing this. Very funny and always love Gene Wilder in anything he does. Some great lines and comedy. Kind of dragged a bit here and there, but overall, a good film. I'll give it a 3.5 out of 5 stars.
31. *Sorority Row: This was another interesting film. Great good, but some poor acting. I do like some of the actors, but their parts weren't that long. If you like teen slashers, I'll give it a look, especially for the nudity. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
32. The Tripper: Killer in a Reagan mask and hippies...add in Pee Wee Herman...shall I say more? Sadly, could have been better, but I love Pee Wee and it's good for a one time view. 2.5 out of 5 stars.

OCTOBER 10th
33. Shaun of the Dead: English comedy zombie film...pretty damn entertaining. Not as great as it's hyped to be, but still good for laughs. 4 out of 5 stars.
34. *An American Werewolf in London: This was pretty decent, but had some dry spells. It's good to watch at least once, but nothing to write home about. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
35. *The Triloquist: The movie started out as a good story, but by the middle of the film, the acting got annoying. The female lead was all talk, but didn't bring the goods. Her brother got pretty annoying without saying a word. The dummy had good comedy, but I don't know why he couldn't break free from the female. A few random questions towards the end that weren't explained as well. If you want a horror film with lots of tits, though, this is a good film. 2 out of 5 stars.
36. *The Orphanage: I heard a lot of good things about this film, so I had high expectations for the film. Sadly, it kind of disappointed as there was a lot of question marks. If you like a good ghost story, this may be a film for you if you don't mind having all the answers. A good film, but not as great as others make it out to be. 3 out of 5 stars.

OCTOBER 11th
37. Abbott & Costello meet Frankenstein: Good comedy film with old school monsters. Must see for anyone that loves monsters and comedy. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
38. Let The Right One In: Great vampire movie with an old school feel. One of the best vampire films out there with a nice romantic story in it. 4.5 out of 5 stars.

OCTOBER 12th
39. *Sinister: Great film. One of the best horror films made in recent years. Up there with Cabin in the Woods, but on a different level. A must see for any horror fan. 4 out of 5 stars.

OCTOBER 13th-OCTOBER 21st (Lost track of when I watched what movies as I got sick)
39 1/2. Dexter Season 7.1: Great opening episode. So glad this show is back on the air. 4.5 out of 5.
40. Dexter Season 7.2: Even better episode with a pretty shocking twist for me. 5 out of 5.
40 1/2. Dexter Season 7.3: Pretty sick new criminal was show who was a total freak show. 5 out of 5.
41. Dexter Season 7.4: great way to move the story along, but not as great as the rest of the season so far. 4 out of 5.
42. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978): Extremely creepy and freaky film with great acting. Loved every second of it. 4 out of 5 stars.
43. *Hell: Started out decently, but was very slow in the middle and end. Had a decent story to it, but just couldn't really pull it off. 1.5 out of 5 stars.
44. Halloween (2007): I'm a big Rob Zombie fan and I enjoyed what he did with his version of the film. Sure, there were a couple of things I didn't like (he portrays the typical white trash stereotype too much) but I enjoyed most of the acting and story. 3 out of 5 stars.
45. Case 39: While not the best movie, there were a few things that were good about it and the girl was creepy. Could have done more with the story, though. For that I will give it 2 out of 5 stars.
46. Insidious: Love the mom in the film. Sadly, I think it's overrated though by the public. Great build in the beginning, but then it falls flat for the most part. Especially the clowns that were the ghost hunters, totally ruined it. 2.5 out of 5 stars as the first half was a 5, second half, 1-2. Hopefully the planned sequel won't fall flat.
47. The Exorcism of Emily Rose: Really love this film, especially since it has Debra from Dexter. Very suspenseful and love the courtroom part of it as well. 4 out of 5 stars.

September 30th
1.The Decent [2005] new! imdb Blu-Ray 8/10
First time viewing. Loved it. Loved the ending. Some of the parts that made me squirm the most were just when the girls were trapped or couldn't move.
2.The Decent: Part 2 [2009] new! imdb DVD 7/10
October 1st
3.Zombieland [2009] new! imdb Blu-Ray 8/10
Great movie.
October 2nd
4.From Beyond [1986] new! imdb DVD 6/10
I got this movie because it was made by same people who did Re-Animator, and that has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. Love Jeffery Combs.
October 3rd
5.Sheitan [2006] new! imdb DVD 7/10
This movie kind of blew my mind. So weird, but extremely engaging. Definitely a highlight of the challenge this year.
6.The Decent crew commentary [2005] new! imdb Blu-Ray 7/10
October 4th
7.Re-Cycle [2006] new! imdb Blu-Ray 7/10
October 8th
8.Predator [1987] imdb DVD 8/10
9.The Decent cast commentary [2005] new! imdb Blu-Ray 6/10
October 9th
10.Predator 2 [1990] new! imdb Blu-Ray 6/10
Funny enough, I had never seen this. They went waaay over the top as a sequel to Predator, but they introduced some aspects to the canon that made it interesting. Classic Gary Busey.
11.The Decent: Part 2 commentary [2009] new! imdb DVD 6/10
WTF was up with the ending? *sigh*
October 10th
12.Zombieland PIP [2009] new! imdb Blu-Ray 5/10
October 11th
13.Alien vs. Predator [2004] new! imdb DVD 7/10
I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I really enjoyed the premise and the idea that Predators bred Aliens for a rite of passage. Having Lance Henricksen in it never hurts any movie.
14.From Beyond commentary [1986] new! imdb DVD 6/10
October 12th
15.Predator commentary [1987] new! imdb DVD 8/10
John McTiernan has a very dry way about him when he speaks, but I do really enjoy his commentaries. There's no bullshit and a lot of interesting stories.
16.Case 39 commentary [2009] new! imdb Netflix 6/10
Some good performances, especially the little girl, but it just didn't come all together. I wish I could remember the end of the movie, but I think I was two bottles of wine in by that time.
October 13th
17.Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem [2007] new! imdb Blu-Ray 4/10
Very sub-par sequel to AVP.
October 14th
18.The Haunting commentary [1963] new! imdb HDNet Movies 8/10
19.Final Destination commentary [2000] imdb DVD 7/10
In the second viewing of this movie since about 10 years ago, I think this was very well done. A unique idea to the horror genre. Thank goodness they changed the ending after having screenings.
20.Predator 2 director commentary [1990] new! imdb Blu-Ray 7/10
October 15th
21Bag of Bones: Part 1 [2011] new! imdb Netflix 5/10
What can I say? When I sat down to watch this movie with a friend of mine, we both thought it was a stand-alone movie and didn't realize until the end that it was a mini-series. We still have yet to watch the conclusion.
October 16th
22.Final Destination 2 commentary [2003] new! imdb DVD 6/10
I thought this was a pretty decent sequel to the first one. A.J. Cook...Wowza.
23.Final Destination 3 commentary [2006] new! imdb DVD 5/10
24.Predator 2 writers commentary [1990] new! imdb Blu-Ray 8/10
I liked this commentary because the writers also talked about their experience on Predator. They should have had a commentary for that movie too.
October 17th
25.Alien vs. Predator director/actor commentary [2004] new! imdb DVD 7/10
October 19th
26.The Final Destination [2009] new! imdb Blu-Ray 5/10
The weakest movie in the franchise for sure.
27.Final Destination 5 [2011] new! imdb Blu-Ray 6/10
Really enjoyed how everything played out in the end. I had no idea. If this is the last FD, then I think it ended just about perfectly.
October 20th
28.Alien vs. Predator effects commentary [2004] new! imdb DVD 5/10
All this commentary entailed was "this is CG, this is real, this is CG, this is real" Very little insight into the movie.
29.Predator trivia track [1987] new! imdb DVD 8/10
A ton of interesting information from many of the cast and crew. I wish they would have just shown the interviews instead of putting all the information in a trivia track, but very informative nonetheless.
30.Trick 'r Treat [2007] new! imdb Blu-Ray 6/10
I didn't really know anything about this movie, but was on the DVDTalk horror movie challenge radar a couple years ago when I bought it. I did like how all of the stories tied together and there were some definite twists and interesting moments. It seemed a bit like an anthology movie, which sometimes takes me out of it being a movie and makes me think of it as an episode of Tales From the Crypt or something, though.
October 21st
31.Re-Animator [1985] imdb DVD 8/10
Oh my gosh, the memories! I think I first saw this at a sleepover when I was like 10 years old. It was sooo creepy back then. I think I saw it again when I was 15 and I haven't seen it since. It really brought back those feelings of when I first saw it. As I said with From Beyond, I've always enjoyed the movies by these filmmaker's and Jeffery Combs was great. David Gale is awesome too!
32.Predators [2010] new! imdb Blu-Ray 8/10
October 22nd
32.5.Dexter Season 6: Those Kind of Things [2011] new! imdb Blu-Ray 9/10
33.Dexter Season 6: Once Upon a Time… [2011] new! imdb Blu-Ray 9/10
33.5.Dexter Season 6: Smokey and the Bandit [2011] new! imdb Blu-Ray 9/10
34.Dexter Season 6: A Horse of a Different Color [2011] new! imdb Blu-Ray 9/10
October 23rd
34.5.Dexter Season 6: The Angel of Death [2011] new! imdb Blu-Ray 9/10
35.Dexter Season 6: Just Let Go [2011] new! imdb Blu-Ray 9/10
35.5.Dexter Season 6: Nebraska [2011] new! imdb Blu-Ray 8/10
Won't do any spoilers, but disappointed with the Trinity aspect of this episode. Should have left it alone or gone with a bigger arc instead of a one off episode.
36.Dexter Season 6: Sin of Omission [2011] new! imdb Blu-Ray 9/10
October 24th
36.5.Dexter Season 6: Get Gellar [2011] new! imdb Blu-Ray 9/10
37.Dexter Season 6: Rocochet Rabbit [2011] new! imdb Blu-Ray 9/10

38.Dexter Season 6: This is the Way the World Ends [2011] new! imdb Blu-Ray 10/10
October 25th
39.Predators commentary [2010] new! imdb Blu-Ray 7/10
October 26th
40.Final Destination crew commentary [2000] new! imdb DVD 8/10
41.Bride of Re-Animator [1989] new! imdb DVD 8/10
October 27th
42.Final Destination cast commentary [2000] new! imdb DVD 4/10
Cast commentaries are usually snoozefests, and this was no exception
43.House of the Devil [2009] new! imdb Blu-Ray 7/10
I'm torn on this. I absolutely loved the 70's/80's vibe to this movie with the look, feel, and music, I just felt like it was just a tad slow (and I don't mind slow) and everything just kind of happened at the end. My god Jocelin Donahue is beautiful, this movie definitely has that going for it.
