Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 9th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (Oct 1-31) P

I was going to watch through all of the Silent Night Deadly Night movies since this is the first year I've owned all of them. I've only ever seen parts 2 and 4 before, and after watching the first one last night I realized I don't want to see those two again. Part 2 is just like watching the first one again and then some funny moments I could just look at on Youtube, and slogging through Part 4 again sounds very unappealing, so I'm just going to watch 3 and 5 and call it good. I'm halfway through Part 3 and it's no winner either. Didn't think last year's remake was more than middling as well. This has to be the most underwhelming horror franchise for me so far.

Yep, that's actually Fulci's cut(director of Zombie), and my preferred version. He uses the Goblin music more and it's a much tighter cut of the movie.

I now understand why Vampirella (1996) has not seen the light of day for years.

That would be Argento's cut

Epic fail! Thanks for the correction guys. I bought the 4 disk collectors DVD years ago, after watching all three cuts of the movie, the European cut became my favorite. I'll make sure I'm citing the correct Italian director from now on.

Toy Story Of Terror was good, but

Spoiler:
They already did the selling the toys thing in Toy Story 2. This wasn't bad, but I think they should have quit doing Toy Story stuff after Toy Story 3. That would have been a great story to end Toy Story with. Now they're just milking it.


Cigarette Burns is so far the best I've seen of Masters Of Horror.

American Horror Story Coven was pretty good. I watched the first two episodes and liked it. I don't find it scary at all, but it sure is fucked up.

House was enjoyable. It kind of reminded me with Evil Dead 2 with how it was horror with a lot of comedy. I still have House 2 to watch.

The Evil Dead is good, but Evil Dead 2 and Army Of Darkness are still my favorites of the series. A question about The Evil Dead Book Of The Dead Edition though: it's in widescreen which isn't the original aspect ratio of The Evil Dead. But isn't this how it would have looked if you saw it in the theater?

A couple of listing questions:

1) Since "The Devil's Carnival" is only 55 minutes, does it count as half a movie? Or are we treating it like a whole movie, like those oldies that might have only run an hour.

2) Are giant monster movies being counted (which imdb generally list as sci-fi, action, adventure, but rarely horror).

1. 55 minutes is technically a full length film
2. I'd say it depends on which one but many of them are definitely worthy imo

I'm not sure if this post is serious, but just in case. You're thinking of "Trading Places"(1983) in regards to those moments.


My movie watching has been extremely limited so far, since it's been a week or so since my last viewing. So I'm at 5 films so far. Work is mostly to blame, along with working on my short movie in my free time, and being to tired to do anything else.

I was hoping to get through the remaining vhs I have yet to watch in any challenge, along with my blu-ray releases I've bought(mostly Scream Factory titles), and some dvd titles as well, which most are first time views for the challenge. I'm not sure if I'll make it through half of them at this point, but I'll do my best to begin watching some titles tomorrow, and see how it goes from there.

Just got back from late night showing of Carrie. Not bad, but not good either. There are some changes in the film , but overall its the same film. Not as good as the original IMO. Save yourself the $10.50 or whatever the movies go for in your area, and dust off the original throw it in the dvd player and enjoy.

"Demonic" had some good gore too and I didn't mind it.
Definitely sounds like it is the same one. I wrapped up the first disc today with Harvest of Fear, which was alright. I'll dive into disc 2 sometime in the next few days.

it also has one of the nastiest decapitations (if that was submitted to the MPAA - you could hear them screaming "NC-17!... NC-17!!!")

For those that enjoy Cigarette Burns (or John Carpenter) his wife and him donated a few signed items for the charity I help with. Auction starts on the 22nd: https://www.biddingforgood.com/aucti...n?id=203205119

Anyways, back to the challenge, what's been the scariest movie you have ever seen and doesn't really drag? A decent story with some good kills. Let's hear them and let me know if they are on Netflix or Amazon Prime.

I'm watching the R-rated cut of Return of the Living Dead 3 since my uncut R2's in storage and all I have is this 6-pack of horror movies Lionsgate put out. I'm left wondering why so much of this was cut. Quick flashes of nudity are cut completely and at one point they even edit out the word "bitch" with a cut happening directly after the character says "You crazy b-." It's like they were editing for a PG-13 or something. Baffling. I've only ever seen the uncut one before and this is hard to watch.

I discovered that little gem last year. Ended up buying it. Trying to carve out some time to get it watched this challenge. Alan Tudyk is fantastic.

Hurray! Isn't it great?! I lucked into it last year, and really hope to get back to it this year, too.

I would watch it, but I won't go out of my way to watch it. I'll stick with the original. Same thing with The Omen, i'll stick with the original.

Not to be too harsh, but Silent Night Deadly Night 2 is one of the worst excuses for a movie I've ever seen.

Totally agree about being underwhelming. First one was not a good movie either, but at least semi-serviceable.

I've been slacking on horror this year. Couldn't muster up the energy to watch the remake of Carrie at the 10:00 p.m. screening tonight (looks like the exact same thing as De Palma's version from the trailer), so saw Escape Plan instead. May try to give it a watch early next week.

Still need to re-watch favorites: The Shining, Scream, Psycho.

Used a wildcard on "Pacific Rim" (figured since it had giant monsters, it wasn't that off-the-mark). I liked it for what it was, but I wonder if the exact same movie came out with Michael Bay's name on it instead of Guillermo del Toro: a) if the reviews would have been as good, and b) would anyone not think it fit in with Bay's filmography.

I disagree. When I went to see this at the IMAX I had low expectations, exactly expecting a 'Bay' film. However, I was completely surprised at how good it was. I think your perception may be because it is just not going to pack the same punch in a home viewing. But for a big screen presentation, much better than a Bay movie. Maybe because you could follow the action or something? I don't quite recall the reason I felt that way. But I would definitely say it was not just because of the name attached.

Wanted to watch Hellraiser last night on Netflix and they are streaming a 4:3 VHS quality version! What the hell? Guess any self respecting horror fan like myself should own this movie but I was hoping for a BD boxset one day (of at least the first three together).

I may wait until next year to do my Hellraiser marathon now.
