~List Final~

Didn't really have any goals this year except to catch up with Vampire Diaries and I ended up having my highest total ever, just wish I had mixed some more movies into it. Since I found this challenge in 2007 this is only the 2nd October where I haven't gone on a 2 week vacation, and both times my SF Giants won the world series, while this is an extremely happy thing , both watching baseball games and visiting friends doesn't leave much time for this challenge unfortunately

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

October Horror Movie Challenge 2012

My goal for 2012 is to reach 100 movies! That, or at least watch more than my previous record of 70. I am writing my thoughts about the challenge on my personal blog daily. I can't link yet because I don't have enough posts yet but that is at marcusmovielife.blogspot.com

Key
First Time Viewing - ☼
DVD
VHS
Netflix
YouTube
Other


October 1st: 181 MINUTES
001. Pieces ☼ [1982]
(085 minutes) It's weird to me how this movie seems to both play it straight and be a big joke. I liked it once I stopped trying to treat it like something "serious". Also, what an ending scene!
002. The Funhouse ☼ [1981]
(096 minutes) I expected something more along the lines of a possessed funhouse, but this turned out to be pretty good all the same.

October 2nd: 284 MINUTES
003. The Pit and the Pendulum ☼ [1961]
(080 minutes) Nice little film although my copy had really quiet/mumbly voices so I had to crank it up hugely to understand what anyone said.
004. The Innocents ☼ [1961]
(100 minutes) Surprisingly spooky film without resorting to jump scares or hammy effects.
005. Theater of Blood ☼ [1973]
(104 minutes) It feels like Vincent Price and the character he played shared very similar experiences which makes it seem sad upon reflection.

October 3rd: 200 MINUTES
006. Visiting Hours ☼ [1982]
(105 minutes) Interesting little story to tie together an acceptable slasher.
007. Dr. Giggles ☼ [1992]
(095 minutes) A little better than one might expect, but still fairly goofy.

October 4th: 283 MINUTES
008. The Cabin in the Woods ☼ [2011]
(095 minutes) It was a fun watch but I don't see why people were losing their minds over it.
009. Urban Legend ☼ [1998]
(099 minutes) Entertaining enough little film.
010. Tucker and Dale vs Evil ☼ [2010]
(089 minutes) My favorite film of the challenge so far. Funny and creative.

October 5th: 266 MINUTES
011. Two Thousand Maniacs! ☼ [1964]
(087 minutes) Surprisingly funny and also light on gore in comparison to what I imagined.
012. Sweet Sixteen ☼ [1983]
(090 minutes) Okay, but a bit weird and slow.
013. Curtains ☼ [1983]
(089 minutes) A few neat dream/murder sequences but otherwise I just didn't get it.

October 6th: 276 MINUTES
014. Humongous ☼ [1982]
(094 minutes) Again, another movie that I just don't understand the love for.
015. The Beyond ☼ [1981]
(087 minutes) Very cool, dreamlike thing. Creepy as can be when people's faces are melting off too.
016. Mountaintop Motel Massacre ☼ [1986]
(095 minutes) Mostly a "me too" horror film. The best thing about it seems to be the cover.

October 7th: 269 MINUTES
017. The Fog [1980]
(089 minutes) Great, creepy flick.
018. Zombie Girl: The Movie ☼ [2009]
(089 minutes) I felt so bad for the mother.
019. American Scary ☼ [2006]
(091 minutes) Fine little documentary. Would have liked more emphasis on Elvira and Vampira.

October 8th: 191 MINUTES
020. Halloween II [2009]
(105 minutes) Don't remember what the first film was like anymore, but this was a creative sequel of a remade movie.
021. Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI [1986]
(086 minutes) Definitely not a movie to be taken seriously.

October 9th: 084 MINUTES
022. Ice Cream Man [1995]
(084 minutes) Silly, but has some great gory effects.

October 10th: 086 MINUTES
023. Black Sunday [1960]
(086 minutes) Hmm....

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

It's time...

SEPTEMBER 30
1) HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1959) - Vincent Price and William Castle? Must be Halloween.


OCTOBER 1
2) MOTHER'S DAY (1980) - Intense and sly backwoods shocker.

3) THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2 - Entertaining, but ill conceived sequel to horror classic. Energetic and well acted but not even close.

3.5) DEXTER (S7 E1)


OCTOBER 2
4.5) ENTRANCE - A tense final act almost redeems interminable mumblecore first hour. Almost. *


OCTOBER 3
5.5) THE CONVENT - Likable characters and a clever script elevate this demons on the loose epic. Adrienne Barbeau is great in extended cameo.


OCTOBER 4
6.5) SALVAGE - Good low budget monster in the neighborhood flick. Well acted and directed. *


OCTOBER 5
7.5) NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS - Italian "Last House" remake is stylish and intense but ultimately pointless. Attempt at political subtext falls flat. Pretty repellent overall. Worst opening/closing credits song ever. *

8.5) SCREAM 4 - Tired but better than 2 and 3. *


OCTOBER 6
9.5) HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH - Spectacularly silly and laughably illogical, but still entertaining black sheep of long running franchise. No Michael Myers? No worries!


OCTOBER 7
10.5) HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS - Cheesy late 80's slasher sequel must be growing on me. It's terrible and yet I end up watching it every year!

11.5) CORALINE - Creepier than most live action horror movies.


OCTOBER 8
12.5) THE EVICTORS - Kinda spooky, kinda dull Charles B. Pierce flick. *


OCTOBER 9
13) DEXTER (S7 E2)

14) TERRORVISION - Mary Woronov and Diane Franklin head good cast in stylized Empire production. Wacky and over the top with some cool special effects. *


OCTOBER 10
15) LEATHERFACE: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE III - Despite some missteps (heavy metal, explosions and a terrible ending) sequel is surprisingly watchable. Mix of gory grit and late 80s franchise filmmaking gives movie an odd tone at times that's kind of interesting.


OCTOBER 11
16) TUCKER AND DALE VS EVIL - Instant classic horror comedy.


OCTOBER 12
17) RABID - Fascinating early David Cronenberg film starts good and gets better as it barrels toward unforgiving climax.

18) THE INNKEEPERS - Moody, stylish ghost story from Ti West. Well acted with great atmosphere and a palpable sense of dread.


OCTOBER 13
19) WHEN A STRANGER CALLS (1979) - A terrifying first act morphs into interesting character study then devolves into nonsense for finale.

20) MOTHER'S DAY (2010) - Rebecca DeMornay is the best thing in asinine, in name only, remake. Overlong, repetitive and totally lacking the wit of the original. *


OCTOBER 14
21) TOURIST TRAP - Underrated and creepy as hell. One of my favorite horror flicks.

22) THE VIDEO DEAD - Decent effects and some cool ideas can't salvage amateurish zombie epic. *

23) TRICK R TREAT - Could this be Halloween's "A Christmas Story"?


OCTOBER 15
24) THE MUMMY'S CURSE - Uninspired late entry in Universal series. Bland with no atmosphere. *

25) TERROR TALES OF THE PARK II (WILDCARD) - Cartoon Network's "Regular Show"'s Halloween double length episode is as funny and trippy as usual. *

25.5) DEXTER (S7 E3)


OCTOBER 16
26.5) SLAUGHTER HIGH - Not quite the nadir of the slasher genre, but damned close. The masked killer has a cool look though. So it's got that going for it. Which is nice. *

27) THE WALKING DEAD (S3 E1) - After a disappointing first two seasons, things are off to a great start this year. Looks promising.


OCTOBER 17
28) MANIAC (1980) - I don't admit this often, but I love this flick! William Lustig's taunt direction, Joe Spinell's committed performance and Tom Savini's mind blowing effects make this an exploitation masterpiece. Only in the movies could a guy this deranged attract Caroline Munro.


OCTOBER 18
29) THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974) - Probably the greatest pure horror film ever made. Flawless.


OCTOBER 19
30) PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4 - The fear is gone. *

31) BUBBA HO-TEP - How a premise as loony as this can become a movie so genuinely moving and profound is simply amazing. Brilliantly acted by Bruce Campbell and Ossie Davis. As much as I love "Phantasm", this has got to be Don Coscarelli's best film.


OCTOBER 20
32) THE VAMPIRE LOVERS - Despite the boobs, blood and Cushing - this later era Hammer flicks feels a bit lackluster. Still enjoyable though with some great sequences.


OCTOBER 21
33) DEMONS - Logic? We don't need no stinkin' logic! Italian gore romp is short on sense but has so much blood and style that it hardly matters. A total blast!

33.5) AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM (E1) - Gloriously off the rails start to new season's storyline. A bit cliche' at times (as was first year) but it should be fun seeing where it goes.

34.5) SHAUN OF THE DEAD - This just might be the best horror comedy film of all time.


OCTOBER 22
35.5) DOLLS - Light as air Stuart Gordon flick is hampered by exaggerated characters but has enough macabre touches to make it worth a look.


OCTOBER 23
36.5) GARGOYLES - Above average TV horror film from 1972. Outstanding creature FX from Stan Winston. Scott Glenn shows up in an early role.

37) THE WALKING DEAD (S3 E2)

38) BLOOD FEAST - I used to dislike this HG Lewis gore pioneer but have since grown to appreciate its peculiar charms.


OCTOBER 24
39) ATROCIOUS - They said it, I didn't. *

40) IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN (WILDCARD) - I'm not sure what kind of a-hole gives a trick or treater a rock.

40.5) DEXTER (S7 E4) - Shaping up to be a top notch season.


OCTOBER 25
41.5) MARTIN - Meticulously crafted thriller from George Romero is one of his best films. Opening is masterful introduction to main character, perfectly played by John Amplas. Horrifying and heartbreaking with a vivid sense of life in a small, dying town.


OCTOBER 26
42.5) HUMONGOUS - Good early 80's Canadian slasher flick. Janet Julian is smokin' as final girl in well photographed and directed backwoods horror potboiler.


OCTOBER 27
43.5) PHANTASM - Pulpy sci fi/horror meets art film poetry in Don Coscarelli's classic. One of my favorite movies.

44) MOCKINGBIRD LANE - Surprisingly intriguing "Munsters" remake is rejected TV pilot. Genuinely weird with a game cast. It would have been a trippy (if short lived) series. *

45) KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE - The Chiodo Brothers film is a classic of the absurd.

46) TROLL 2 - Speaking of classics of the absurd...


OCTOBER 28
47) PET SEMATARY - Adaptation of Stephen King novel is a little cheesy at times, but effective when it counts.

48) NIGHTMARE - Trashy slasher flick is good fun for those with a taste for such sleaze - Others beware.


OCTOBER 29
49) THE HORROR HALL OF FAME (WILDCARD) - Originally aired on ABC late night in 1974, this tribute to the genre is true blast from the past. Along with a brief history of horror movies and bad comedy skits, host Vincent Price and guests such as Frank Gorshin, John Carradine and John Astin stumble through informal chats. It's cool to see Vincent discuss the new crop of horror films and actors like "Blacula" and Peter Cushing.

49.5) AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM (E2)


OCTOBER 30
50.5) THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS - After watching I have a strange urge to shop at Hot Topic.

51) DEXTER (S7 E5)


OCTOBER 31 - HALLOWEEN
52) SUSPIRIA - Dario Argento's masterpiece is a kaleidoscope of color, sound and dread. One of the greatest horror flicks of all time.

53) FRIGHT NIGHT (1985) - Perfect blend of old fashioned creature feature and post modern FX extravaganza. Chris Sarandon and Roddy McDowell are fantastic as vampire and vampire killer.

54) HALLOWEEN (1978) - It may be a cliche' but I've gotta watch this after a night of trick or treating.

55) NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968) - Halloween always has to end this way. It just has to!



THE END????

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



2005: Bill Paxton's dick in True Lies | 2006: 97 | 2007: 79 | 2008: 57 | 2009: 59 | 2010: 77 | 2011: 56

For the management's own sanity, it must be stated that there may be slight spoilers ahead. Be warned!

Oct. 01
01. Paranormal Activity¹ (2007) A suburban demon attacks (justifiably, considering the acting) a pair of upwardly mobile doofuses. A few sudden scares, but no real meat.
Oct. 02
02. We're Going to Eat You (Di yu wu men) (1980)
03. Motel Hell¹ (1980) Rory Calhoun makes the finest smoked meats, thanks to his gargling garden full of heads nearly ripe for the pickin'. And supposedly, no preservatives.
Oct. 03
04. The Stuff¹ (1985) This taste sensation feels free to flow past plot points whether they're important or not, but the acting and occasional schlock can satisify any Stuffie.
Oct. 04
05. Troll¹ (1986) Trolls. They're very musical people, aren't they? A chorus of slimy puppets look to recreate their own slice of heaven, one bodypod, one apartment, at a time.
Oct. 05
06. The Black Room (1935)
07. The Masque of the Red Death (1964)
08. The Crimson Cult aka Curse of the Crimson Altar¹ (1968) Boris Karloff. A tweedy Christopher Lee. With some groovy bits thrown in. That should be enough, right?
Oct. 06
09. The Phantom of the Opera (1962)
10. Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965)
11. Crucible of Horror aka The Corpse¹ (1971) Michael Gough plays a tyrant father figure who dominates his wife's and daughter's universe - whether he's alive or not.
Oct. 08
12. In Search of Dracula (Vem var Dracula?)¹ (1975) Christopher Lee's mustachioed presence and the locations used give this docu an appropriately otherworldly feel.
Oct. 09
13. Spooky Encounters aka Encounter of the Spooky Kind (Gui da gui) (1980)
14. The Dead and the Deadly (Ren xia ren)¹ (1982) A friend is impotent. Oh, and dead. And the widow is pregnant. Sammo Hung investigates, with supernatural results.
15. Mr. Vampire (Geung si sin sang) (1985)
Oct. 10
16. Ed Wood (1994)
Oct. 12
17. The Kiss of the Vampire (1963)
18. Rasputin: The Mad Monk (1966)
Oct. 13
19. The Plague of the Zombies (1966)
20. The Witches (1966)
Oct. 15
21. Meat is Meat aka The Mad Butcher (Lo strangolatore di Vienna) (1971)
Oct. 16
22. The Man Who Could Cheat Death¹ (1959) He's not old, it's glandular! Just okay Hammer entry has all the familiar production values, but is bogged down in verbiage.
23. The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll (1960)
Oct. 17
24. Island of Lost Souls¹ (1932) Must've been terrifying for 1930s audiences. Laughton's Moreau is fantastic, cultured and immoral. Smaller than expected Lugosi presence.
25. Freaks (1932)
Oct. 20
26. Dracula (1931)
27. White Zombie (1932)
Oct. 21
28. Dracula's Daughter (1936)
29. The Brides of Dracula (1960)
Oct. 22
30. Night Creatures aka Captain Clegg (1962)
Oct. 24
31. The Curse of the Werewolf (1961)
Oct. 25
32. The Leopard Man (1943)
33. The Mighty Peking Man aka Goliathon (Xing xing wang) (1977)
Oct. 26
34. I Walked with a Zombie (1943)
35. Isle of the Dead (1945)
Oct. 27
36. Hider in the House¹ (1989)
37. Dr. Lamb (Gou yeung yi sang)¹ (1992)
38. MST3K version of Soultaker (1990)
Oct. 28
39. Bedlam (1946)
Oct. 29
40. The Ghost Ship (1943)
Oct. 31. Happy Halloween!
41. The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
42. The Curse of Frankenstein (1957)
43. The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958)
44. Carnival of Souls (1962)
45. Night of the Living Dead (1968)
46. Young Frankenstein (1974)
47. Dawn of the Dead (1978)
48. Day of the Dead (1985)

¹ means I hadn't seen it before
