WARNING!!!!! FILM TALLIES MAY CONTAIN FORMS OF SPOILERS IN THE NUMBERS!!!!!!!!!!

September 30th Dusk Hours:

1. The Monster Squad (1987) - This movie comes from a time when kids movies took place in a very adult world. It's not dumbed down or condescending like so many children's films now. On just about every technical level, this movie is better than is usually given credit for. The pacing, at a scant 80 minutes, is perfect for the shorter attention spans of children as well as providing a fun satisfying romp for adults not looking for anything deeper. But it does both of these things without cutting corners in the plot or just assuming we're morons like just about every big summer movie does now. The story being told is complete and is given to us with the least amount of filler as possible. Then there's the absolutely beautiful cinematography, great score, and make-up effects you don't forget even over two decades later. There's not many better ways to start the season.
1 vamp crossbowed, skeletons be poppin', dirt Snickers, mummy in da closet, how DOES the dog get in the tree?, 'Bogus! Bogus!', 1 smashed phone booth, 1 pair of nards, 1 mummy unwrapped, treehouse boom, 1 in explosion, 3 vamps staked, wolfy bomb pants, 1 by silver bullet, 1 by fat kid shotgun blast, 1 neck snap, 1 poor bastard sucked into wormhole
Grade: A-


2. Butcher Baker Midnight Maker (1982) - This movie had become almost legendary amongst my little circle back in the days of hunting vhs tapes, a few years before the coming of dvd. The alternate title, Butcher Baker Nightmare Maker, sounded so looney, it had to be made up. But it's finally out, and I finally got to see it, and...it's fucking bonkers. Susan Tyrell is only the hanging point for every other oddball and kook that strolls across. Bo Svenson is great yet horrible as a truly loathsome homophobic cop. It could be easy for viewers to dismiss the film as hateful, but if you really pay attention, he's really the most hated character in the movie, even above the murderer. It's something I don't think the movie will ever get credit for. The majority of the film is of the psycho-drama-babble kind, with lies about identities and obsession, before it really gets into full slasher mode in the final third. But the whole time it has a charm to it that makes it easy to have fun, even when those on-screen clearly aren't.

Grade: B

October 1st:

3. Die Monster Die (1965) - Another early adaptation of Lovecraft, but unlike The Haunted Palace, it doesn't seem able to assimilate Lovecraft's ideas into its own style of horror filmmaking. It wants to adhere so closely to the tropes of the other creaky house films of the time, that it seems fumble-handed when dealing with those esoteric ideas of the unknown. But that's not to say there's not some oddball shit going on. The sound effects when spiked up are quite unnerving, and the glance at the "zoo from hell" is worth the burn in the brain. It's big fail is in the final moments when it seems to have stolen an ending from an episode of Lost in Space or something. It didn't fit with either of the genres they were trying to meld. Still, credit has to be given for attempting such an out-of-the-box story to adapt.
1 heart attack...maybe, 1 Melty McPuddleFace, 1 into a goddamn magnesium fire or something
Grade: C

4. Unhinged (1982) - One of Portland's main two entries in the slasher boom, the other being the far better Blood Song. This is a good example of a movie being fairly bad, but enjoyable if you're a fan of the genre. The bad writing, directing, and loopy logic feels almost comforting at this point. I also had a good laugh seeing such a sleazy, bottom-barrel (VHS nasty even) movie shot in Portland's beloved Pittock Mansion, one of the spots this city likes to put on a pedestal.
first mention of the Taco Time restaurants in any sort of media for me, 1 by scythe, 1 by axe, basement goo n' grue, 1 by gun, 1 by machete
Grade: C-

5. Ghoul (2012) - It kind of stings to see one of my absolute favorite authors adapted in a film that gets released finally, only to find the movie just about a complete failure. The level of acting and directing in here isn't much further than that of first-term film students. The way such heavy elements is handled is almost laughable. There's absolutely nothing satisfying here.

Grade: D-

October 2nd:


6. Tremors (1990)- Over 20 years later and this film is no less fun. It stalls a bit when everyone spends most of the final third of the movie stuck on roofs, but even then the film's preoccupied with making that situation as unique as possible. One of the few "evergreen" movies to come from its time.
5 grabbed by the graboids, sheep snacks, 1 graboid by rock, 1 horse eaten, 1 through the floorboards, 1 wrong goddamned rec room, 1 graboid who indeed can not fly
Grade: A-

7. Dogs (1976) - The majority of this movie is fairly average, covering much of the same ground as other nature amok films to the beat. But that last third suddenly becomes such a downer and feels so full of nihilism, it kicks you in the shins a little. From something that felt like a tv movie to morose doom in 3 seconds, it seems. The final image hints at a would-be sequel that could have been legendary.
minimum of a dozen people knocked down and mauled by dogs, 1 old lady tackled by doberman, 1 gunned dog, dude loves his cakes, 1 dog clubbed, copious sporadic college bodies
Grade: C

8. Alucarda (1978) - At least 62 of its 75 minute running time is shrill screaming, guaranteed to have you on edge in some way or another. But within the cacophony of noise, is a dark fairy tale of hell and damnation that is at least in the same ballpark as the mighty Suspiria. The images in this movie is that of the dreamscape, and the sort that I try my best to hunt down. Watching this late at night as I'm drifting to sleep didn't help the notion. Such a beautiful and manic film, and one I'll have to go back and peel at.
1 truly unsettling beheading, 1 neck chomped, 1 melted, blood bath, 1 stair tumble, so many spontaneously bursting people that I couldn't keep count amongst the craziness
Grade: B

October 3rd:


9. Grave Halloween (2013) - The first Syfy movie of this year's challenge, and it's actually not bad. A lot of kudos given for it not being another ridiculous CGI movie and it seems to even go against the mandatory monster-every-8-minutes mandate they have. It wants to ape the patterns of Asian ghost movies from the last decade or so and I think that's why it stands out a bit. It's not entirely successful in what it wants to do, which gives it a weird mix of Asian atmospherics with American B-movie hokum. The entire movie's predictable but it keeps itself lively enough to never be boring, the main crippling element of Syfy movies. It's also shot well which is another point that doesn't come up much in Syfy stuff.
1 twig in throat, 1 vine and quartered, 1 pulled apart by ghost, 1 hanging, 1 by ancestral rake, 1 neck snapped, 2 by plague-ridden cgi insect cloud...?
Grade: C-

10. House on Sorority Row (1983) - For some reason, I always had the impression that this was a somewhat rough low-budget flick that developed a cult following. But it's actually pretty slick and professional. The slasher tropes shine at a level that puts it near the top of the best examples of the era. While it may feel familiar, it's certainly engaging with its characters and the mystery at the center. The look of the film is wonderful as well, with the final sequence, involving someone on sedatives, really stands out with its hypnotic editing and kaleidoscopic colors. One of the true gems of the slasher boom.
1 slashed waterbed, 1 drowning, 4 by old lady cane, I'm a sea pig!, 1 cane/down the stairs c-c-combo breaker, 1 thorazine trip, 1 head in a toilet, 1 falling
Grade: B

11. The Ogre (1988) - LamBava delivers his first real whiff for me, but even then I don't know how much of that is on him and not the screenwriter. The story is plodding, some good ideas that never really come together to hold your interest, but the aesthetics of the films is incredible, and is the only thing that saves this from being a complete wash. The setting, the camera moves, the lighting, and the just plain awesome score by Simon Boswell combine to create true dream-cinema, but those sublime moments are interrupted by the need for exposition and some sort of story. I would have been fine with this just being a music video for about 45 minutes. The titular Ogre itself looks like a Chuck E Cheese character left in a moldy barn for too long.

Grade: D+

October 4th:


12. Flying Monkeys (2013) - For the first few moments, I thought this might actually have a sense of humor about itself, something that all the successful Syfy movies have. But nope, immediately afterwards it turns to pure tedium. It's the sort of movie that you hit pause to go to the bathroom or get a drink, and then you take your time coming back to resume. And when you do, it feels like a chore to keep going. This 85 minute movie probably took four hours out of my day to finish. It's just so bland and boring.
9 by flying monkeys in some generic cgi fashion, bullet-riddled flying monkeys, 1 by crossbow, 1 neck slashed, 1 cringe inducing reference to "porch monkeys"
Grade: F+

13. Tower of Evil (1972) - An interesting film that exists sort of at a crossroads between exploitative slasher and British atmospheric creaky-house horror. Again, the base story is nothing new, but the presentation is perfect for late night schlocky spookiness. The flow of narrative is played around a bit with as well, adding a unique approach to delivering some of the backstory. And honestly, if your movie has some wonderful sets and design work, it's going to be pretty easy to get on my good side.
1 by knife, 1 by sword, 1 head rolling down a long-ass stairway, 1 by falling, 1 stabbed offscreen, 1 neck snapped, 1 clawed open, 1 explosion
Grade: B

14. The Survivor (1981) - Another example of an overly familiar story being elevated by the presentation. The film is shot wonderfully, with so may shots looking like they were truly composed rather than grabbing a shot for the sake of the movie. It's a beautiful film all around. The story is very deliberate, taking its time to build up atmosphere and I really appreciated the patience it took. In lesser hands, it would have been treated as a slam-bang affair with lots of loud sounds and quick edits. But with a measured hand, even cliche ghost girls become haunting once again. The way the film frames the plane's cockpit as a monolith of dread in many shots brought chills to me. Excellent acting from the leads helps to remind us that this is a horror film for adults, something we don't see very often at all anymore.
1 pretty haunting plane crash, 1 by train, 1 drowning, 1 by paper cutter, 1 slashed throat, 1 by gun
Grade: B+

15. Madhouse (1974) - As lovable as Vincent Price is, there are times where it became apparent that the movies he was in had already run their wheels into the ground. This one goes the same path of a series of murders one-by-one in unique ways, the same path in the far better Phibes and Theater of Blood movies. It just doesn't feel fun or unique in here, as though everyone knew it was a quick churn-out. Price, of course, does his best but the rest of the film doesn't seem to want to try along with him, resting on its laurels. I can appreciate the meta-approach to Price's character, and the ending was fun in an EC comics ways which I really enjoyed, but the rest is fairly lifeless.
1 dismembered head, 1 by pitchfork, 1 hanging, 1 squished by bed canopy, 1 knife in da neck, 1 by stairs, 1 crazy spider lady

October 5th:


16. Hunting the Legend (2014) - It's been a while since I've seen something so utterly devoid of anything remotely resembling entertainment or even competence that I've almost forgotten what a true "no star" movie is. This held my attention at first with some of the on-camera confessionals, shamelessly stolen from Blair Witch, but after about what felt like the fifth hour straight of the numbskulls preparing to go into the forest, my patience had evaporated. Once they finally do make it to the forest, it amounts to what feels like days worth of whiny hipster kids sniping at each other, Bigfoot be damned. It's just so much fuck-all nothing that I felt my soul withering. Protip: If you're going to rely on improvised dialog, make sure your actors have some sort of grasp on the talent needed to do it, or even how to resemble functional human beings.
absolutely fucking nothing, maybe some offscreen kills...who knows, really
Grade: F

17. Night of the Comet (1984) - For something with such a huge cult following, this was underwhelming to say the least. I was with it for the first half hour or so, which I thought was faaaaaaaaaannn-tastic. It had a great tone and sense of humor coupled with an interesting setup. And then the movie literally has no idea what to do with itself. It has to come up with shadowy evil government types and completely zaps away any interest I had. The last hour or so felt like an eternity to finish. It's only the sense of humor and the fun characters that thankfully continued forward through the whole thing that saved it from being a wash. At least I could crack a smile very now and then to keep me from falling asleep.

Grade: C-

18. The Jungle (2014) - Fairly average for middle of the road found footage flicks. If nothing else, it was nice seeing one that didn't have paranormal researchers for the 65th fucking time again. Most of the characters aren't played by your typical looking actors, adding an authentic touch to it. There's a few decent jump moments but it's nothing revelatory. It also falls into the peril of looking for something to do, with minutes on end of just wandering the jungle to eat up running time. But as a fan of the sub-genre, I found it fun enough.

Grade: C+

19. Return of Dracula (1958) - Dracula gets a man-perm and invades sunny TV Land California. Fuck knows why. Maybe free room and board? Maybe he likes the valley girls? I don't know. The movie was so rickety that I had plenty of time to ruminate at how in the fuck this guy who looks like he should be running a bagel shop is actually one of history's greatest monsters. Still, as arthritic as the movie feels, it's hard to hate on it since it feels custom built to have on in the background as low-grade B-fare for the season.

October 6th:


20. All the Kind Strangers (1974) - The Keach man gets abducted by the Walton kids and made to play "Papa." Considering this was made in the 70's, I could see this being a whole lot nastier if it hadn't been made for tv. I know the ending wouldn't have been a touchie-feelie crock of shit if it hadn't been. But there is some amount of pleasure to seeing Stacy Keach having to restrain from knocking the shit out of a bunch of hayseed kids.

Grade: C-

21. The Vampire (1957) - A bit of schlock that I really enjoyed, with John Beal really giving it all. Goes down a somewhat different path with its vampire story, one that allows for more than a few nods towards drug addiction. The vampire himself looks out of whack as well, resembling a junkie with the skin of a rotten Muppet, but that helps it feel unique unto itself. Quite a lot of fun and doesn't stick around long enough to wear out its welcome. And I won't lie, I found the relationship between Beal and his daughter quite touching.
4 necks chomped, 1 by gun, 1 vampire in need of a dermatologist
Grade: C+

22. Varsity Blood (2014) - Sort of a companion piece to last year's Bloody Homecoming, and it feels similar as well. It's a throwback to the fourth-tier slashers, the ones you start getting to once you've hit all the big name bases. And it's easy to give something like 1 star and call it crap, but I can't do that in good conscience when I know there's far worse slashers put on a pedestal simply because they were made in the 80's. Barring the year of production, there's not a lot different here. Same hooky cliches, same stiff amateurish acting, same eye-glazing level of entertainment. It's fun for what it's aiming for and I can respect that.

October 7th:


23. Gingerdead Man (2005)- This is like the fourth or fifth time I've seen this thing, and I don't know why. I think I keep hoping it lives up to what I want out of it. There's moments where it becomes the fun-bad movie I could laugh at, but it then gets mired in mostly pointless blabbering. And then there's no damned way anything Busey says in the beginning was scripted. They just let him off the meds and rolled camera.
3 by gun, 2 by knife, big ass cookie cutter, 1 car, human pasty, 1 cookie eaten, worst potential wrestler in history, 1 possessed human cooked
Grade: D

24. Gingerdead Man 2 (2008) - I can't believe how pitch perfect this is. It sits at a perfect crossroads of b-movie badness, vulgar base humor, and a sharp parody of Full Moon itself, along with the general public's perception of them, to the point that I'm a little surprised Band signed off on it. I can't count how many times I burst out laughing, with it winning me over with the parody puppets in the opening scenes alone. The manic energy keeps it from ever feeling dull, overcoming the typical drags that bring down most schlock films. Also, a cookie is literally crucified. Ya don't come across that too often.
fairytale recap, Joan Jett wannabe theme song, "Throw more gold!", 1 curling iron in da butt, 1 chainsaw, 1 by laser prop, 1 by knife, 1 crucified cookie...and then flambeed
Grade: B+

25. Gingerdead Man 3 (2011) - After how much I enjoyed the second one, I eagerly popped this one in hoping to find more of the same. But unfortunately it never reaches the same level as part 2. Only the opening parody of Silence of the Lambs rises to match the previous film in hilarity. Then it becomes rather routine, well as much as a killer cookie time traveling to the 70's CAN be routine, as the film follows a rather uninteresting plot to frame Gingie running around killing people in. There's still chuckles throughout but nothing gutbusting, and the mid-movie attention drifts began to set in amongst the cliches. It was trying, but never reached the same spark I loved before.

October 8th:


26. Ghost of Goodnight Lane (2014) - Another straight to Walmart shelves movie that I had little hope for, but ended up having a good deal more fun than I imagined I would. The most important thing is that it has a sense of humor, making any sort of doldrums more bearable. Billy Zane alone is a ton of fun, simultaneously suave and sarcastic. WHO CAN RESIST THIS MAN?! The story is another haunted house/artifact/object thing with jumpy editing as a ghost effect, but this time it's a haunted production house which I found to be a ton of fun having spent more than enough time in such places. It's also littered with likeable side characters played by loveable character actors. Richard Tyson is in it way too little, for instance. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer much new other than the laughs so while it's nothing revolutionary, it's sooooooo much more enjoyable than most of the crap that litters on-demand and Redbox anymore.
2 by random coat rack things haphazardly placed on a wall, Billy Zane ghost-fu, 1 face in da fan, 1 by glass carving, 1 sucked into hole, 3 stabbed
Grade: C+

27. Double Exposure (1983) - What a loon. This movie's fully off its rocker, and it's not entirely for the good of things. It just kind of shambles along without any idea of pacing or suspense, but then the kills are so "what the fuck?" that it's almost shocking. The performances are whacked across the board, which makes it even more jarring when the copious and almost graphic sex scenes happen. And when they happen, they assault you. These are not people you really want to see get down n' dirty. The story itself is predictable to a "t" so don't expect anything satisfying there. But at the same time, it's watchable, in a car wreck sort of way. Whaddamess.
1 knife in da neck, 1 drowning, 1 strangled, 1 by rattlesnake in a bag over the head...ya got me..., 1 by knife, 1 by beer bottle, world's worst cunnilingus scene
Grade: C

October 9th:


28. Shiver (2013) - I actually had a chance to work on this movie when it was being shot, but that's around when life took a turn for the worse and I had to turn it down. I don't think it would have gotten me anywhere further in life but from what I hear it was a fun shoot. That's about the most interesting thing I can say about this because the movie itself is such a non-entity that I don't know what else I have. It's the type of thing you've seen to death. John Jarratt is good in it and Danielle Harris is okay, but that's it really. Just another girl kidnapped and tortured by a nutter. It also never seemed to know when the hell to end. It felt like a conclusion had been reached four or five times before it finally wrapped.
1 by knife, 3 strangled, 1 throat cut, 6 by gun
Grade: D

October 10th: 32st Birthday! How the hell am I still here?!


29. Honeymoon Horror (1982) - A middling slasher that feels like it was cobbled together from a tax return and shot over weekends. It's so damn wonky that I could feel my mind drift to when I need to do my laundry and other chores. It didn't help that most of the characters looked alike, making it hard to tell who the hell was who, both on the male and female side. And then it feels like 50 minutes of its runtime consists of couples whispering sweet nothings to each other in their rooms. Still, there's an inherent watchability to it if you're okay with low-tier genre fare. At least the bumbling backwoods cops scenes were funny.
1 by gun, 5 by axe, 1 found body, hillbilly hijinx, marital issues
Grade: D

30. The Quiet Ones (2014) - Nothing's more disappointing than a series of great concepts handled with fumbling fingers. The idea of whether paranormal activity is caused by us willing it to do so is a good starting point, but then injecting forced handheld camera work destroys any sort of immersion we had. The two styles of film do not mesh together at all. In another film that did so, Rec 3, it actually led to the rest of the movie feeling like schlocky junk. This holds together a bit better than that, but it's still a lesson to not dip the toes into both pools. Eventually, the story itself devolves into people being pissed at each other over who's bonkin' who and who wants who. Who the hell cares if not even one of the relationships feel natural? And then the final third revelations seem to be a mashing of "dun dun duuuunn" moments that seem only half-baked. At least there's exactly one interesting kill and Jared Harris was pretty good. It was interesting to sit through at least once, but the potential for what it could have been is disappointing.
2 beaten to death in jarring ways designed to get a PG-13, 2 by fire, camera quality abuse
Grade: C-

October 11th:


31. Caesar and Otto's Summer Camp Massacre (2009) - Right upfront, if you want to watch this and give it a chance, you have to be okay with the typical wonky acting that no-budget films have. If you can accept that within the first few moments, it actually comes to work for the film. It's quite a charming fun little escapade, filled with off-hand one-liners that are simultaneously campy but rude and abrupt. It made me laugh quite a few times, endearing myself to the characters. They're kind of like more hateful versions of Lloyd and Harry from Dumb and Dumber. I see that they continue making these still which is nice to see. If the short about Dracula's lawyer that's on the dvd is an indication, the quality of the films and the acting are going up as they continue working on them. I look forward to finding more from them.
2 by chainsaw, 1 strangled, 1 eye popped, 1 by shovel, hand popped, arm popped, 2 by axe
Grade: C+

32. Black Water Vampire (2014) - A tedious string of found footage cliches that amount to nothing. From now on, any such movie that doesn't devolve into the characters yelling and being pricks to each other, or have the seen where a weird looking person is seen staring at their window from across the street, automatically gets bumped up a star. The backstory makes no rational sense, and this giant hike to film at a ten year old crime scene in the woods serves no goddamn purpose either so immediately, the whole point of the movie is moot. It did a good job of getting real locals to give testimonies on screen, but they were more compelling actors than our leads. And even that, along with most of the movie, is stolen from Blair Witch on a more shameless level than other shaky cam films. When the monster is shown, it's treated with no idea of how suspense or terror works. Here, here's our fucking vampire in full light and shitty framing. An appearance from Bill Oberst is really the only memorable scene from the film.

Grade: D

33. Island of the Fishmen (1979) - A ridiculously campy B-movie that doesn't know if it wants to be a creature flick or hokey adventure film. I actually watched the Screamers version of the movie which adds a new prologue filled with over the top gore. It's completely arbitrary and serves no point, but the effects are really damned good. It makes the rest of the movie a little disappointing because the effects can't live up to the new American scenes. There is some delight in laughing at the very visible eye-holes of the creature suits, though. The island adventure and trips to Atlantis make for a lot of fun as well. It's basically a low-value Euro version of Indiana Jones/Allan Quartermain with pissed-off junkie frogmen. it goes well with generic label booze off the bottom shelf.

October 12th:


34. Scary or Die (2012) - A mostly throwaway low-budget anthology. Most of the stories amount to nothing, but a few of them are at least shot well and try to have a patience to their pace. I actually quite enjoyed the second story. A man trying to find a purpose in life again saves a woman from abduction. It's mostly free of dialogue and shot with the natural light of the city, making it feel more dreamlike in a way. There's a style to the camera movements and tone of the story that I loved, a level of talent that only shows up again for a few brief moments in the final story. The others don't fare so well. The first tale is the sort of garish, ugly, and thoughtless film that plagues indie horror on a wide level now. The third story might as well not exist, and the clown story is essentially a Family Guy cutaway joke stretched on for eternity and taken seriously. I'd like to just cut the second and the final stories out to make them their own little package and I think my opinion would go up much higher.

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

OCTOBER CHALLENGE 2014

Goal: 50 (Because I'll never top last years 153, and I used all my vacation days)

Blue = Repeated viewing
Green = 1st time viewing

RESULTS:
First time views: 56/72 = 77.8%
(BLU RAY) views: 44/72 = 61.1%

Some highlights:
1)Year of Troma!: Watched 9 first time views of Troma films. Terror Firmer was a huge favorite, followed closely by Poultrygeist.
2)Entire Saw franchise
3)Top 5 Favorite first time views: The Silent House, Terror Firmer, Nighbreed (Cabal Cut), Rubber, Curtains
4)Top 5 Worst films: Toxic Avenger 3, Dungeonmaster, Redneck Zombies, Village of the Damned, Cabin Fever: Patient Zero
5)Best Surprise: Rubber
6)Best blu ray upgrades: Nightbreed (Cabal Cut)
7)Biggest disappointment: Oculus - great reviews from the horror community and intriguing trailer, but film was dull.
8)Best re-visit: Cabin in the Woods - even better the 2nd time

Sept 30th (Dusk)
1)The Blob (1958) - (BLU RAY) Only film of my knowledge which includes a car reverse drag race. Great effects for the time, and the definitive 50's sci-fi monster invasion film. 8/10
2)Evil Dead (2013) - (BLU RAY) Making comments about being raped and sucking d*cks in hell aren't as spooky as a well delivered "you're all going to die" line. At least the film tried to be different by plot instead of just upping the ante in terms of gore and dialogue like most modern remakes. 6/10

Oct 1st
3)The Nail Gun Massacre - The film opens with a rape scene. It's not graphic or anything, but let me just restate that, it OPENS with a rape scene. Love how the doctor in the film wears jeans, a white t-shirt, and a jean jacket. There's a scene where a guy is fooling around with his topless girlfriend, and decides to leave because he has to "cut wood with my buddy". Yup, he deserved to die. Very cheap production, a movie best served to laugh at and point out all the flaws. 4/10
4)DungeonMaster (aka Ragewar) - Barely considered horror, but whatever, it's included in the Scream Factory Up All Night Marathon dvd set. Biggest flaw with the film is the inconsistency and over reliance on the character's computerized wrist guard. It shoots lasers, gets out of police cuffs, gives off high frequency sound waves and practically anything else that the story requires. The main character's outfit was a ripoff of Smoke from Mortal Kombat. A waste of time, but earns bonus points for having a surprising full frontal shot and a good stop motion creature effect. 2/10

Oct 2nd
5)Bloodsucking Freaks - (BLU RAY) I've never been a fan of ballet, but having your ballerina perform topless would instantly make me reserve a seat. There were plenty of WTF moments, but perhaps my favorite was when one character calls 911 only to get a recording instructing him to leave a message. Was this common in the 70's? Sardu looked like a skinnier, homosexual version of Louis C.K. 4/10
6)Corruption - (BLU RAY) Don't invite any surgeons to your party as they make dull guests and may accidentally disfigure a friend of yours. Nothing too special amongst so many other similar titles, but Peter Cushing and Grindhouse is an instant sell. 6/10

Oct 3rd
7)Hostel - This was my first rated R film I saw in theaters. I've seen it a few times now, but that eye goo is still a gross out moment for me. Nothing too exceptional besides being considered one of the first 'torture porn' films so popular these days. 5/10
8)Hostel 2 - Only my second viewing, but I seemed to have gained more of an appreciation for it. I was glad it was more than just a female version of the first film, which is what I thought it was going to be at first. Much more focus on the process behind the hostel, and some characterization from the clients which leads to a role reversal twist. Plus, that blood bath scene 6/10
9)Oculus - (BLU RAY) Major let down from all the positive buzz I read about the film. The parallel timelines were jarring, and scares were minimal. Odd complaint, but I felt the characters were a bit too young for the story. What 23 year old has a successful career and fiance? 4/10
10)Cellar Dweller - Jeffrey Combs is literally wearing the exact same wardrobe as he does as Herbert West, it's as if he just shot his scenes in between sets while filming Re-Animator. I find it curious that this alleged 'School of the Arts' has the equivalent of third grade chalk art in the form of shitty flowers colored on the outside of the building. Furthermore, this college has no professors nor any set curriculum, what kind of school is this? 3/10

Oct 4th
11)Saw - (BLU RAY) Really stuck with me for a long time as it was the first horror film I saw with a twist ending. Redefined modern horror by churning out sequels every year for half a decade, with each one earning huge profits. Also, I'm thankful it launched the career of James Wan. 7/10
12)Crawlspace - (BLU RAY) Thanks to the filmmakers for answering the question 'how can Klaus Kinski be any more of a creep?' How about if he wears make up while stalking young females and listening to old Nazi propaganda! Oh, still not creepy enough? How about if he has an army of rats, keeps a tongue-less human locked in a cage in the attic and plays russian roulette? I know this was at the end of his career, but there were shots where I could swear he looked exactly like Ian Holm as old Biblo Baggins. Also, at his imdb photo being from this film. Not scary or suspenseful, but earns a high score for being such an odd film. 5/10

Oct 5th
13)Empire of the Ants - Thirty minutes until the ants first attack, then humans running here and there until the last twenty minutes. Effect shots range from acceptable to atrocious. If you're looking for sci-fi animal attack films there are plenty to chose from. 2/10
14)Toy Story of Terror - (BLU RAY) Like Scream, a self-aware parody of the horror genre. Plenty of fun and great to see the cast return. Only complaint is it ended too quick! 8/10
15)The Beast Within - (BLU RAY) My only thought while watching was how similar the plot resembled that from Child's Play, and was not surprised to see Tom Holland, who directed Child's Play, wrote the screenplay for this. Nothing great, but the effects in the last 20 minutes make it worth the investment. 5/10

Oct 6th
16)Saw 2 - (BLU RAY) This was my first Saw theater experience, and I still remember the 'holy shit' expression I had with the film's ending tying into the first. Liked the background explored for Jigsaw. Needle pit is perhaps the nastiest trap in the entire series! 6/10
17)Contamination .7 - My first question was 'what the hell is up with the .7 in the title?' And by the end of the film, I still had no idea. The back cover gives the description of the movie as nuclear waste turning TREES into "man-eating plants", which is very misleading. There are no killer trees, just killer roots and vines. All they do is wrap around a character's neck or limbs and pull them away from the camera, but there was one kill where a vine impales its way through a man's eye socket in his skull. I don't mind poor acting, especially in horror films, but the acting here was stale and flat, almost like they were reading right from the script. Bullwhip sound effects everywhere! 2/10

Oct 7th
18)Witchboard - (BLU RAY) Fun, cheesy little 80's flick. Even the psychic medium, who are typically portrayed as the serious character, is a young female with colored hair, beaded jacket and very unprofessional jokes. Not a monumental 80's horror film, but fits the profile and worth a watch. 6/10
19)Fright Night 2: New Blood (BLU RAY) Wonder if 20th Century Fox paid so much for the character rights that they just decided to make this movie to maximize their payout? I hated how Peter Vincent's character talks like Jesse from Breaking Bad (but I did love his yellow fuzzy jacket with black polka dots). Rather than go for a generic, no-name vampire, the writers decided to go all out in using the origin of the legend itself, Elizabeth Bathory aka the Blood Countess. Worth a watch, but it was DTV for a reason, and it's easily lost amongst so many horror outputs these days. 4/10
20)Saw 3 - (BLU RAY) Notable for having the first nudity in the franchise! Sure, she's a frozen Popsicle, but oh well! I felt my pulse going into the 100's just watching the surgery scene. Carries the story well, but this is where the franchise started to slide. 5/10
21)Flesh for Frankenstein - While the story and characters are nothing new, the movie is infused with such sexuality and perverseness that easily makes this one of a kind. There's a scene which parallels sex with a close up of the Baron's face as he is pulling out digestive organs from a corpse, starting with sweating, eyes closing, moaning then an elongated sigh of relief. Udo Kier steals the movie and I just loved how confident, calculating and commanding he was, similar to Jeffrey Combs as Herbert West. So good in fact, it made me instantly purchase the OOP Blood for Dracula, which I will be watching soon. 8/10

Oct 8th
22)Saw 4 - (BLU RAY) So wait, you mean to tell me that the FBI was just called in to assist with Jigsaw's murders now? Jigsaw's scheme felt a bit grandiose here, with the SWAT officer involved having to go to multiple locations, starting with Hoffman's apartment, a hotel and an abandoned school. Only redeeming quality was the backstory shed on Jigsaw's past and the introduction of his ex-wife. 3/10
23)The Purge - (BLU RAY) Felt like a modernized horror version of Assault on Precinct 13 and raises some interesting moral questions. I was thoroughly entertained and that's pretty much all I can ask for in modern horror. 6/10

Oct 9th
24)Saw 5 - (BLU RAY) Story is really stretching introducing a second accomplice of Jigsaw from the beginning. Nothing too positive except that it somehow manages to carry the franchise forward. 3/10
25)MoH: Homecoming - WAYYYY too political to enjoy as a zombie movie. I'm ok with zombies running and using basic weapons, but zombies voting is where I say to hell with that. 2/10

Oct 10th
26)Saw 6 - (BLU RAY) The franchise starts to blend together starting at 4, and this follows the same formula. Few flashback scenes detailing Jigsaw's history with a main subject going through a series of tests. The shotgun carousel of death was among the more memorable traps within the last 3 films though.3/10
27)Grizzly - I was prepared for a Jaws ripoff, but this is practically a clone! From the characters, story structure, an identical serious monologue ala Quint's Indianapolis story, animal POV just to name a few. Lot of charm here and surprised at how much I enjoyed it. 7/10

Oct 11th
28)The Whip and the Body - (BLU RAY) Bava never disappoints and this is no exception. Not as spooky as some of his other stories, but still highly atmospheric and great visuals. 8/10
29)Nurse - (3D BLU RAY) You though your employer's HR representative was awful, this one is straight out of hell! For a nationally renown hospital like this, there sure seems to be a lack of surveillance cameras and competent security guards. The bloody killing spree at the end of the film and some gimmicky 3D shots make this an enjoyable experience, but nothing exceptional. 6/10
30)The Horror Show - (BLU RAY) Holy cow does the villain look awful in drag, that shot alone will give me nightmares. Some decent effect works during certain scenes, but the film loses points for copying material from Rodney Dangerfield. Still, much better than Craven's Shocker which has a similar premise and is just a bore. 5/10

Oct 12th
31)Beneath - (BLU RAY) Fun little independent horror film, but piss poor characterization. There's not a single likeable character, they all turn into d'bags when faced with death. 4/10
32)The Wicker Man (1973) - (BLU RAY) Like TX Chainsaw Massacre, it has minimal blood and gore, but the idea itself is horrifying. Teaching school aged children about phallic symbols and witnessing young females jumping around a fire naked in an act of fertility are just not concepts thought to be existent in today's culture. To see the entire town not only oppose a police officer but to go as far as actually hindering his investigation adds to the mystery. Shocking and haunting all wrapped up in a superb mystery focused on the disappearance of a young child. 9/10
33)Carrie (2013) - (BLU RAY) I was glad they updated the film for today's audience using current technology as the bullying that occurs, a common problem amongst today's schools. Good update and slightly more faithful to King's novel, but nothing outstanding. 6/10

Oct 13th
34)The Evil Clergyman - I was too tired while watching this, so the entire thing was over before I had time to comprehend what the hell I just watched. I do remember a rat with a human face kissing Crampton's rear end, so it has that going for it. 3/10

Oct 14th
35)Nightmare City - (BLU RAY) Italian horror and gore at its finest, enjoyable all the way up til the end when the film comes to an abrupt halt with the biggest F*ck You ending in horror history. Still, you have non-zombie zombies drinking IV blood like it was Gatorade and surgeons flinging scalpels like they were ninjas. If you can put up with the ending, I highly recommend a purchase. 7/10
36)Death Spa - (BLU RAY) Features the most erotic asparagus eating scene in any horror film I have ever seen. Screams 80's, my favorite example being an incredibly large panel for two tiny computer screens and a phone in the middle. Ridiculous concept but it works, and I'll be revisiting this frequently. 6/10

Oct 15th
37)Village of the Damned - I felt the film was a lost pitch for the Superman franchise, "how about if we have Superman battle some rugrats?" The idea of being in the same room with ten pregnant women giving birth at the same time is much more terrifying than anything the film itself. Time passed way too quickly with none of the adults aging, and not even a "8 years later" screen. 3/10

Oct 16th
38)Saw 7 - (BLU RAY) A serviceable finale to the franchise, but the ending is the most predictable out of the entire series. I still don't get the opening scene, makes no sense to have such a scene in view of the public. I have expected Criss Angel to make a cameo with the opening subjects taking a bow, making the whole thing a publicity stunt. 3/10
39)Jaws 3 - Good lord does this film need a proper 3D blu ray release, maybe then I could overlook the flaws, such as the gimmick shot of the shark swimming towards the glass of the command center near the film's finale, but without motion in the shark's tail or fins. Don't care how many humans were killed in the film, all I cared about was those damned dolphins making it through. 5/10

Oct 17th
40)Terror Firmer - Holy hell was this a blast to watch. It opens with a heavy metal version of Amazing Grace and I love how self aware the film is, such as one character comparing the works of Spielberg with indie directors like Kaufman, or another scene in which a set worker discusses continuity in film with a character who repeatedly changes nationality and costumes while conversing. Toxic Avenger put Troma on the map, but this is the quintessential Troma film. 8/10
41)Catacombs - In addition to torturing souls, the Devil is also fond of air bitch slapping his opponents. Some great sets and I can appreciate religion mixed with horror elements, but ultimately a bore. 4/10
42)Hotel Transylvania - (BLU RAY) Literally my wife's favorite movie so this will be watched every year, and I imagine when we have children, it'll be played endlessly on repeat which I support, as it serves as a perfect introduction to the genre for kids. It's fun to identify all the monsters besides the big Universal names. 7/10
43)Leviathan - (BLU RAY) Could have been great, but still a fun watch. I have no idea what the creature was supposed to be or what in the hell it was supposed to look like, but had some decent effects. Seemed like just a bunch of tentacles popping up randomly to me. 6/10

Oct 18th
44)The Final Terror - (BLU RAY) If this is The Final Terror, what happened to The Terror 1-3? (some Friday the 13th humor for you). Kills are few in number and tame, but anyone who is a fan of horror films set in woodsy areas should be a fan. Not for me though.
4/10
45)Return to Nuke Em High Vol 1 (BLU RAY) Good for a few chuckles, but otherwise lacking. Hopefully vol 2 will fix that. I understand Troma's fanbase with the fart jokes and everything, but this seemed a bit much. A penis falling off within the first five minutes of the film, duck rape, and giant rubberized penis used as a weapon are too delinquent for me to sit through. 3/10

Oct 19th
46)It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (BLU RAY) Did anyone grow up not watching this? 9/10

Oct 20th
47)Rats: Night of Terror - (BLU RAY) Pure cheese, but I have a soft spot for all Italian horror. The dialogue between the characters is pure lol-inducing. My favorite example being "think of the diseases they can give you: hepatitis, meningitis, leptospirosis, plague." as one character leads others up a flight of stairs to safety. 6/10
48)Deadly Eyes - (BLU RAY) Surprise double feature night! Rats are terrifying enough, making them the size of Dachshunds will scare anyone living outside of New York, whom citizens see on a daily basis. Nothing noteworthy, but enjoyable. 6/10

Oct 21st
49)You're Next - (BLU RAY) A nice spin on the home invasion subgenre and a fresh idea in the all to stale horror market these days. 7/10

Oct 22nd
50)Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones - (BLU RAY) Had no interest when the trailer first debuted, but the Paranormal Activity is a series I have been following and a fan of since the beginning. Liked they changed some things up, such as using a Simon says electronic game in place of a ouija board, but retconning the ending to PA1 was not an idea I approve of. 4/10
51)Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead - I hated the first hour as it felt forced and unsure of its identity. Characters burst into song and desperate attempts to offend just about anyone through topics of homosexuality, religion, ethnicity etc. The film takes on an entirely different personality for the second half, with a visual assault of gore taking place of near constant verbal offense coming from the first half. That said, highly recommend. 7/10
52)Cabin Fever: Patient Zero If you want a decaying, rotting chick fight for a climax, then this is the film for you. I feel the attractive female scientist was cast just so she could take her uniform off to use an eye wash station right after coming into contact with blood. 3/10

Oct 23rd
53)Toxic Avenger 2 Good for some laughs that only Troma can deliver, such as folding an attacking midget into a basketball, but otherwise dull. Toxie chasing after a kamikaze motorcyclist on a hovercraft was quite a spectacle to behold though. 5/10
54)The Silent House (2010) Absolutely tremendous film. Simple and effective with very convincing acting and camera work. You feel like you are hiding in the cupboard right next to Lauren as she hides from footsteps approaching from upstairs. You feel relief and free as though you are escaping right alongside Lauren as she gets the key and runs outside. The pinnacle and most terrifying moment is a 110 second blackout on screen, interrupted only by occasional flashes from a polaroid camera. 9/10

Oct 24th
55)Night of the Demons (2009) Heard surprising good things from horror enthusiasts, but a disappointment from me. There are too many lazy effects, such as Angela switching between human and demon simply by shaking her head in a sped up manner, complete with a moronic sound effect lifted straight from a Looney Tunes cartoon. Even a demonic Shannon Elizabeth saying "I'm going to fuck your brains out until they're spilling out of your ears" would still be an offer I'd accept. I appreciate some of the differences the film offers, but others are head scratchingly bizarre, such as demons being repelled by rusted iron for some reason...4/10
56)The Sacrament - (BLU RAY) Did The Father remind anyone else of Jim Ross from WWF? Thrilling and made me want to learn more about the Jonestown suicide after the trailer came out. 6/10
57)Toxic Avenger 3 Should have been titled Toxie turns Yuppie as that was the highlight of the film for me, seeing Toxie wearing sunglasses, shorts and a polo tshirt. 2/10

Oct 25th
58)Curtains - (BLU RAY) So so slasher given ultra deluxe treatment on blu ray courtesy of Synapse films. There didn't seem to be any central character with equal time spent on each actress. 6/10
59)The Burbs - Seen bits and pieces on cable tv throughout my years, but never recall watching in its entirety until now. It's the paranoia of Rear Window but gone to comic extremes. Sit back and enjoy the show just like Corey Feldman's character. 8/10

Oct 26th
60)Possession - (BLU RAY) Jewish version of the Exorcist. Overuse of the 'blame child's erratic behavior on the hardships of divorcing parents' cliche. The idea of my mother dating a dentist is a much more horrifying thought than anything in this film, which is why I burst out laughing at the scene where the dentist loses his teeth. 5/10
61)Body Bags - (BLU RAY) Great anthology film featuring some of the best in the business, even Wes Craven has a cameo as a creepy guy. Features a pre-Joker psychotic Mark Hamill taking his acting to the next level by showing ass and part scrotum. 7/10
62)The Cabin in the Woods - (BLU RAY) Even better the second time, you catch so many little intricacies missed the first time. Earns a spot in my top ten horror films from the past decade. 9/10

Oct 27th
63)Legend of Hell House - (BLU RAY) Very faithful adaptation to the book and one of the better haunted house films. Each character has their own methods to derive opinions on the house, whether it be through spiritual, physical or scientific means. 7/10

Oct 28th
64)Rubber Easily earns my favorite and most enjoyable film for this year's challenge. Right from the opening "no reason" narration, I knew I was watching something entirely different from the rest. From the 'you can all stop pretending' speech to the dialogue used to lure the tire into a trap and all the way to the ridiculous ending, I was laughing so hard so many times my cat jumped off me. 9/10

Oct 29th
65)Class of Nuke 'Em High Felt like two completely different movies, with the first hour comprised of the Cretin gang terrorizing the student body and teachers alike, then the last 20 minutes a generic monster film. Still, being a Troma film, that monster is naturally derived from a toxic joint causing a teenage girl to become pregnant ending in a miscarriage with the fetus falling into a toxic waste barrel. Only from the minds of Troma I tell you. 4/10
66)All Cheerleaders Die - (BLU RAY) Interesting premise, but the dialogue and characters lost my interest. You have the star football player whose hobbies include beating women, rape and...bear traps? Everybody is referred to as either a 'bitch' or 'dog' which gets highly annoying very quickly, and poor effects. When the stones glow, it looks no better than kryptonite out of Smallville tv series. 5/10

Oct 30th
67)Toxic Avenger 4 Wastes no time being offensive, opening with Toxie saving a school of special students being held up by a gang wearing diapers. Much better than 3, but still far below better Troma offerings. I did learn that girl on girl action is good for your unborn child though. 5/10

Oct 31st
68)Halloween ('78) - A classic, my favorite slasher of all time and a perfect film. Not much more to say. 10/10
69)Halloween 2 (TV Cut) Wow, watched the tv cut expecting something different, but will never be watching this again. I think the only added scene is Laurie dreaming of seeing Michael institutionalized as a child, but that's it, and you lose all the gore and nudity. No thank you. 6/10
70)Nightbreed (Cabal Cut) - (Blu Ray) I appreciate all the effort that went into the making of this film. Some characters makeup must have too hours to put on only for a few seconds of screen time. Highly enjoyable and have no idea how David Croenenberg got involved, but glad he did. 8/10
71)The Purge: Anarchy -(Blu Ray) Reminded me of one of my favorite video game series from my youth, Twisted Metal, with various vehicles wielding different arsenals. Loved the open world environment which gives the series more thrills and action as opposed to holing up in one environment. The CGI blood took me out of the film every time it was utilized though. 7/10
72)Redneck Zombies Troma sure knows how to market as this film caught my attention from the opening action segment in Toxic Avenger 3, with posters for the film and characters describing the greatness of this film. Anyways, very cheap production, I swear 75% of the film was shot with actors in front of a photoshop backdrop. Did have a slightly amusing parody of TX Chainsaw Massacre with a polaroid obsessed hitchhiker picked up cutting himself to demonstrate his 'shaving technique' and other few laughs, such as putting moonshine in a baby's bottle who is standing straight out of a washing machine. When not featuring unintentional humor, the film is a chore to sit through. 2/10

Wife's Thoughts In Blue
[/size]
- Sept 30th -
1.) - 2.)
Friday The 13th S02E05-08 (1988) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: I wanted to start out the challenge with something familiar that wasn't necessarily a first time view and that I knew wouldn't be a dud. I have been slowly trilling through this series, challenge by challenge, ever since I bought this DVD set back in 2010 during Big Lot's black friday. Yes, you read that right. This has been moving around my to watch pile for the last 4 years. This time around we get a Phantom of the Opera story, an actor using a cursed makeup kit, wax figures of death (at the fair) and some ventriloquist shtick. The Phantom story was a little on the sappy side. The makeup kit episode was a bit by the numbers. The fair episode was my favorite and it even made me consider going this year, briefly. And then there was the Dummy episode. I always find these kind of movies uncomfortable (the embarrassment not the evil dummy). But I will give the last one credit for going in a weird and different direction that I haven't seen in ventriloquist vehicles before. At this point they are just backing into cursed objects. Usually attached with people they want to date. I can see the purpose of this, wanting to have it be a little horror movie but I tend to like it better when they are on the hunt, sort of paranormal American Pickers. Not as good as the first season but still an above average and enjoyable genre tv show.

Shiner: Oktoberfest (Texas)*
My Thoughts: My initial reaction to this beer was that it tasted a little skunky on top with notes of cigarette ash mixed with caramel. I was leaning towards a 2/5 but on my second beer I decided to ditch the bottle and pour it and it made a palpable difference. There might very well be a specific presentation method that complements this kind of beer. One thing is for sure, everything else the rest of the challenge is going into a glass. The second go around presented a pleasant marzen style beer. Not something that would win any awards but generally an all around good drink.

Rosemary's Baby (1968) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: I try not to watch movies that I have reviewed in previous challenges but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to force my pregnant wife to watch this classic, and knock out an optional theme night to boot. The movie looked fantastic on blu-ray, I had only ever seen it on a computer screen before and it just didn't do justice to all the late 60's decour/wardrobe. It is kind of weird but my grandmother still kind of dresses like Rosemary did in the movie... Anyway it is a classic and let me apologize in advance for my wife's review below.

My Wife's Thoughts: I want to see baby. It was ok. Demo choto hen. I expected too much, it wasn’t that great and I can guess the ending easily. And I don’t understand why this is a horror movie challenge (You guessed it was the devils baby?) Not devil’s baby but it’s just they creepy people, husband getting creepy… everyone except Rosemary creepy and they take away baby. I didn't expect devil’s baby but I expected all other ending correctly.

Look What's Happened To Rosemary's Baby (1976) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: Atrocious YouTube quality aside it wasn't that bad. When I saw Patty Duke's name attached I had flashes of Amityville 4 and immediately feared the worst. No returning actors from the original except for the annoying neighbor lady who seemed to fall back into the roll effortlessly. And their were some conceits as they made the boy look normal when as we remember he at the very least had cat-eyes and at the most little hooves. The movie is broken up into 3 chapters (anthology style) which was kind of fun. It never exceeded average but it did satisfy the itch I had to see what happened to Rosemary's Baby. I would have liked Criterion to have thrown this on their disc as a bonus feature, It might have even made up for not having a commentary (at least by a film historian (come on guys!)).

The Willies (1990) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: A campy anthology with wrap arounds staring Sean Astin still playing a kid at 19. And at that be on the lookout for several other familiar faces. This was one of those horror movies that simultaneously plays down while for kids while having subject matter that seems much more adult oriented. Think the Ice Cream Man or The Gate. I never saw this one when I was a kid but still received a certain amount of nostalgic gratification from it. I am going to have to start amassing movies like this for when my daughter grows up a few years so I can ease her into the genre. Wasn't a huge fan of the last and longest story but as a package I was pleasantly surprised.

Warm Bodies (2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: When I first saw the trailer for this movie I was against it. Zombies falling in love, talking PG-13!!!?!?! But then I saw the trailer about a thousand more times and started to really want to see it. And I do have to admit, grudgingly, to liking it. The ending theme I was not a fan of but otherwise there is some great zombie apocalypse here, I liked the love story and I even laughed a few times. Was their undead love as good as Return Of The Living Dead 3? Not quite but of all the other zombie love stories this one would rank quite high. And if they had released an unrated version (big oversight there) it would have rated even a little higher.

Commentary For Warm Bodies (2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: This commentary was fantastic. You get the director and the two leads, they are a little drunk and they have a great time. Especially that saucy Ausie girl. She was extremely entertaining to listen to and I think is probably the 'life of the party' type that really brightens up a room. She reminded me drunk Milla Jovovich in the Resident Evil commentary. I was initially meh on her because for some reason or another she really reminded me of Bella but after this track you can count me as a fan. Probably not as informative a track as others but way more entertaining. I was a little down though as the director mentions they shot all the gore and just cut it back to PG-13, why no alt cut? Snowglobes.

Lakefront: Pumpkin (Wisconsin)
My Thoughts: Runner up for best pumpkin beer last year, lakefront does not dissapoint. It has a very interesting pumping flavor that is light on the traditional spices (this is opposite to the industry standard) and finishes with a note of liquorish. Another interesting facet of this beer is that it starts out as a light crisp pumpkin lager but kind of thickens as it warms and finishes a lot closer to a pumpkin marzen. Reading that now I think I am going to have to go back and test this one again. Either way if you are going to try just a few pumpkin beers this year, make this one of them.

Stalled (2012) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: Thank you mighty sparks for suggesting this movie and thank you alyxstarr for hosting it. This google drive idea was great, if we could get each member to host 5 movies we could have our own DVDTalk Horror Flix channel! Not a film that I would have even given a second glance and for the first 5 mins or so I was thinking that that was a very justified opinion. But then the movie took a sharp turn for the better. The comedy started clicking and I gave into the plot which I hadn't really been on board for at the begging. For sure it lacked polish and felt a little like it was a stretched short story but I liked it. When to not do drugs; while pined down by the undead.

Left Hand Brewing Company: Nitro (Colorado)
My Thoughts: Well this beer started out with an activity, which was nice. Carbonated with nitrogen instead of carbon dioxide and has to be poured (forcefully) in order to activate the carbonation. The beer itself is a thick, creamy, bitter stout. Stouts are not really my go to beer but it had a little skull on it and referenced the undead so I had to have one for the challenge. It was not my cup of tea but did have an interesting Russian vibe about it. Later I tried to pair this beer with chips and salsa, that was a mistake.

The Meateater (1979) (VHS)
My Thoughts: Most misleading VHS cover ever. No cannibalism, no excruciation TCM style dinner scenes, this is a movie about a shoe salesman buying a rundown movie theater that has a Phantom problem. I actually really like the premise of this movie, the whole running your own theater was a dream of mine when I was younger. Obviously a much more obtainable one in 1979 than now. But anyway they take this plot and cast it not only with bad but some super annoying actors (we are talking Nilbog channeling here), pace it all wrong and genuinely kill what could have been a decent movie. If you are considering seeing this go see Popcorn instead (I actually remember not thinking Popcorn was that great either but I do know I disliked it much less (might have to revisit this one)). Upon further investigation their appears to be a Facebook fan page for this title, if you can believe it; https://www.facebook.com/TheMeateater.

Commentary For Crystal Lake Memories (2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: 7 hour commentary? What could go wrong? Actually it was a good track, it reminded me of the Jason Goes To Hell commentary if it were a little toned down. It is heralded by the Crystal Lake Memories creators, both big genre fans that tend to wander to wonder onto other properties throughout the course of the feature. They are entertaining though out and even offer up additional info that has been in the previous however many hours of this and the bonus disc and His Name Was Jason that I have watched. My favorite parts were probably talking about the people who refused to participate, a subject I found perversely entertaining. And now I think I can take at least a decade break on Friday The 13th Retrospectives.

Evil Dead (2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I was not onboard for this movie for about the first third. But then when shit starts going down, shit starts going down. I did find myself comparing it to the originals constantly, there were somethings that were much more effective and a few things that I desperately missed. I almost went with a 3 out of 5 on this one but admittedly it did viscerally both gross and creep me out. And it even got me talking to the screen once or twice like a sassy black woman.
(3.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: Very unrealistic. And it’s not fair why everyone die while mia is alive because she is the one with the problem and everyone try to help her. Do they have 2,3,4? I can watch. Too gross, glad to watch after dinner. 3 star cause I don’t like that ending and it is too gross. (What did you think of this compared to the other movies?) Other one is much better, this one is kind of worse and really gross, story wise nah. (Which one was the best?) Musical pretty good, I don’t see musical like that so I enjoyed it. Yeah, expected too much, choto disappointed.

Dust Devil (1992) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: This is one of those titles I put on my Amazon wish list and then promptly forgot about until it had gone out of print and skyrocketed in price. Recently I found that Mill Creek was selling the same title for about $4 so I decided to pick one up. Turns out that this version is almost half an our shorter than the other but I am not so sure that that additional running time would have made this project that much better. The movie started out with a bang (and ended with one) but aside from that I never really got too much into this one. It was ok, had some picturesque scenes and the bit about being white in south Africa was interesting but otherwise I don't know how this title even warranted the 5 disc edition that came out back in '02.

Friday The 13th S02E09-14 (1989) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: This batch was about an evil pocket watch, keychain, bee transport box, playhouse, lantern and the return of an evil compact mirror that got away the first time. The best one was about a Picker that had a magic lantern that allowed him to go back in time to seal antiques to sell. And of course one of our heroines gets trapped back in the past and gets to meet Robert E. Lee. And the worst was the return of the compact which really just felt lazy. Overall it was decent viewing though.

Dundee: Oktoberfest (New York)*
My Thoughts: Well this dashed by rapscallion dreams of a Crocodile Dundee brew. It starts out really crisp, too crisp for anyone to consider it a marzen with an almost cheap generic taste to it. I kept waiting for it to improve but it never did. It was like a domestic with some marzen flavoring added. A good seasonal beer for the Bud Light/Coolers fan in your life.

Possession (1981) (VHS)
My Thoughts: Sam Neils wife starts cheating on him with an alien(?) and then she and everyone around her proceed to go insane. It is basically a Cronenberg movie. Recommendable to fans of such properties. I don't go much into movie symbolism, mostly because I think it is about 75% rubbish. But this movie may very will be an analogy for the splitting of the German state. As odd as that may sound.

Marshall: Oktoberfest Lager (Oklahoma)*
My Thoughts: Now this is what I have been wanting to drink for days now. An Excellent deep mellow Marzen. Fantastic beer that is a little earthy, has hints of caramel and barley, I loved it. This whole time I had been thinking that this is one that I had last year and thought was just meh, but that wasn’t the case on either point. The taste of fall... And no, having this be a beer from my home town had no effect on score.

Hofbraul: Oktoberfest (Germany)*
My Thoughts: Have never really liked green bottle beers. That being said this may very well be the best one I have had. Reminds me of a Heineken mixed with a marzen. It’s interesting but not something I would run out and buy. Still a passable pleasant surprise… I wonder if have I changed or is it just this beer? Further beervestigation will be required.

Bates Motel S01E01-02 (2013) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: I decided to check out this one for checklist purposes and it was decent. If I had just seen the first episode I don't know if I would really be compelled to follow up with the series. Compared to the other genre shows out now, most relatable American Horror Story, it just didn't define it's self enough, it kind of felt like a show that might have come out 10 years ago. The next episode did fair better, it added a criminal underbelly to the town and took the series in kind of a Twin Peaks direction. While this won't be a priority watch for me I will keep an eye out for deals on the series.

Commentary For Evil Dead (1981) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I like probably most of you already owned Evil Dead, multiple times over, but I didn't have it on blu-ray, it was $4 and it had a new commentary so I had to dip at least once more (I say that but I am fully aware that I will eventually buy this title again). The guys were a little dryer this time (having done so many commentaries for these movies at this point you can't really blame them) but what we get is a pretty comprehensive story about the making of this film that I can't say I have really head before. This might be due to my focus on the second one as it is admittedly my favorite. But the low budget behind the scene stories on this one fantastic, dealing with redneck bums, living on a dollar a day, and the sort of real life trial by fire that is exceptionally compelling. Great track.

Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987) (DVD)
My Thoughts: This was probably Freddy's peak, there is a lot I could say about this film but I have a cobbler in the oven. So suffice to say this is the second or third best Nightmare movie, depending on what kind of mood you are in. I will always remember Freddy TV and arteries for puppet strings.

Still Screaming (2011) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I feel mislead here, the back of the box contains this line of text "Still Screaming combines extensive interviews with cast and crew from Scream 1-4...". And while this is true, it would imply that this retrospective covered all 4 film when in reality it was clearly made well before Scream 4 was even in development. And admit idly that did taint things a little for me so have a grain of salt with my thoughts here. This might have been good if I had seen it prior to Never Sleep Again or Crystal Lake Memories but the guys at 1428 film have set the bar pretty high for horror retrospects. And it ends up making this piece feel like some standard behind the scenes featurette or HBO making of. I am still holding out hope for a good Critters and Hellraiser retrospective though.

La Hoarde (2009) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Heavily influenced by The Raid, this French Zombie movie was watchable but didn't strike me as the above average zombie experience that the forum it as last year (or was it the year before that?). We go the Danny Boyle style zombies that apparently get stronger after they die, unless a specific plot point is needed in which case they are pretty easy to hold down. I didn't like a majority of the characters and they whole movie felt like a stretch for time. But even so I am a sucker for a zombie movie, and there were a few bits of cool here and their in this piece. I wanted to shoehorn something about the French surrendering to the undead in their but there really wasn't a good place for it.

Berlin Undead (2010) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Well, the Germans did give me a slightly better zombie movie. We are again trapped in a lower income apartment building, this time with no weapons and a loosery sort of heroin. And even though these are similar running zombies, they felt much more inline with my zombie expectations. The movie never really WOWed me and they did add a few extra rules to their zombies but it was a satisfying if vanilla experience. Lately every time I watch a zombie movie I kind of just wish I was watching The Walking Dead.

Yellowbrickroad (2010) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: This movie came free with Berlin Undead, otherwise I probably would have never given it a chance with a cover and a title like that. But it has been the surprise of the challenge for me so far. I am a sucker for old conspiracy theory/historical mysteries and this one tickled my brain just right. I had written down a movie recipe for this title but I feel it would inflate expectations too much. Just go in expecting a non-nauseating Blair Witch style walk in the woods and I think you will like it too.

Swinger Massacre (1975) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Jerry and Amy are looking to spice up their marriage, but Jerry's idea to swing soon turns into a nightmare. As far as subject matter goes this could have been an excellent movie. But it is played more like a sub par thriller than a horror movie. The main actress is frequently naked but the other swinger girls are always suspiciously clothed. Somewhat interesting for the psycho/sexual aspect but otherwise there just isn't enough here.

Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark (2010) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I couldn't help but thinking the whole time that this film could have been more effective with little puppets, like the little guys from The Gate. I bought this before I knew it was a remake so I am hoping that the original delivers on this a little better. Otherwise it was a good movie that got left behind because of all the Cruise/Holmes weirdness.

My Wife's Thoughts: I do not liked that ending at all, why Kim have to die? This is all Alex fault. If he listen the beginning it didn’t happen. And I will say 4 star.

Red Hook: Out Of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter (Washington)*

Shipyard: Pumpkinhead (Maine)
My Thoughts: Strong with the pumpkin, this beer is. Lots of pumpkin right up front on a nice smooth lager base with hints of pear. Now this is what I expect a pumpkin beer to be. Very mild, feel like not have alcohol. Good taste like little thin British beer. I don't know how to do scoring, I don't do beer. You put score. Is that pumpkin beer? Doesn't taste any pumpkin. And she is crazy, this beer is dripping with pumpkin, actual pumpkin as opposed to the pumpkin spice flavoring that has been so prevalent as of late.

Fright Night II: New Blood (2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Not a squeal, just another reboot. This time Charlie, Evil Ed and the girlfriend are on a class trip to Romania and Jerri is their sexy female vampire professor. It was actually ok, not as good as any of the other Fright Nights but the Romania setting helped it quite a bit. Don't expect to like any of these characters comparatively to their previous counterparts but there is plenty of sex and violence.

Samuel Adams: Harvest Pumpkin Ale (Massachusetts)
My Thoughts: Heavy with the pumpkin spice scent and flavor, it seems more pungent than last year, not nessisarily better but more. And there is that weird taste to it, it is something that reminds me slightly of dirty river water. I have tasted it before so it is something beer related that I need to nail down in the “tasting”. A decent but average offering.

Sexbomb (1989) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Now this is just the right kind of bad movie. It’s cheesy, it’s got the Quigley, there are lots of boobs and I just loved every minute of it. It takes place on a small horror movie set where the producer’s vixen wife is plotting to have him kiled. And did I mention that the film there are making is called; Werewolves In Heat? This film is in the same spirt of Bad Girls From Mars, Return To Horror High and Bloodsucking Pharaohs In Pittsburg. If you are a conosure of 80’s camp this is for you. Also how is it possible that this movie has 2 commentary tracks!

Commentary For Sexbomb (1989) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: We have both female leads and the victim producer in this track. And the track is a lot more toned down than I feel like anything with Quigley should be. There are enough interesting remembrances and cringworthy moments so save it from being a disaster. Overall, however, there is too much dead space/watch time and talking about purses/outfits.

Friday The 13th S02E15-26 (1989) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Wow, I think I have had my fill of Friday The 13th the series for awhile. Some highs and some lows here. My two favorite episodes were the one with the cursed camera that allowed an oddly obsessed lycanthrope-ophile to live his dream. And another where a frozen Nazi is brought back to life to hunt down Jack, his old war buddies and to be a right wing radio show host. it is quite the feeling of accomplishment to have this title finally out of the too watch pile after all this time. It was a good series but the question must be asked; Would I have bought these if the series had been named anything else?

Paranormal Activities: The Marked Ones (2014) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: Mexican kids what are doing? That is white people shit right there. So I have only seen the PA1 and now 4, given some of the connections it might have benefitted me watching the other 2 prior to this movie but it wan't a big loss. I was for sure less scared overall during this one as opposed to the original, but it did give me a few jumps and one goosebump moment. I couldn't relate to the cast as much this time but it was an interesting way to get out of telling the same kid of story as the first 3. And the urban setting is a very underused one in horror genre. A little better than average and there is enough here so that I would be interested in seeing the next one.

It wouldn't have bothered me so much but I can't find my remote to change viewing modes (I have been having to use the buttons on the side for basic functions (like a savage)).

Attack Girls' Swim Team Versus The Undead (2007) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: By all accounts this is a bad movie, the production values are low, the acting is atrocious and the plot is just downright stupid. What this film does having going for it is hot 20 something Japanese girls pretending to be hot 17 something Japanese girls. There is lots of nudity, over the top violence, lesbian scenes and (in true Japanese form) upskirt shots. If you go in with the right expectations a mildly good time can be had with this admittedly bad film.

Ban the Sadist Videos! (2005) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Ah, now this is why I really wanted The House On Straw Hill. It is a fascinating look at movie censorship in the UK. I hate the MPAA but the system they have over there is completely unacceptable. Reminds me of the violent video game crusade that went on over here back when I was going through school. Even only being 9 years old, the documentary feels a little dated, an update that included the recent internet filtering would be nice. As a lover of film I could never support any of these government sponsored censorship programs, super 1984.

Elvira's Movie Macabre: Maneater Of Hydra (1967) (DVD)*

I probably would have liked it either way. I wish I had know this was set on an island so I could have saved myself having to suffer through Zombie Driftwood. Also how do these mad scientist keep getting this awesome old manors/castles to live/research in? I should have been a mad scientist.

The Howling (1981) (VHS)
My Thoughts: Easily one of the top 5 werewolf movies ever made. I loved the whole Wickerman small town with a big secret aspect. Does anything good ever happen to city folks when they decide to take some time off in the country? There is some really good physical effects in this movie but the just aren't quite as good as An American Werewolf In London. Dee Wallace is, as usual, great and I love her unique screaming. Several good old school horror cameos and that ending credits shot made me so so hungry!

The Howling IV: The Original Nightmare (1988) (DVD)
My Thoughts: This is roughly the same plot as the original movie but it is apparently a retelling of there source material much like The Shining miniseries. It does not play as well as the original and the effects are really uneven, sometimes being amazing while other times hooky. I will say that the werewolf temptress was more alluring this time aroung. An ok cabin in the woods werewolf movie but does't hold a candle to the original.

House Of Dark Shadows (1970) (Internet)*

The opening theme seems a little weak this time but the show has potential, I will be tuning in. Flipper action.

Contamination .7 (1993) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Also known as Troll 3 has about the same quality of acting and production quality of Troll 2 although no Trolls (or Goblins). So apparently someone saw that scene in Evil Dead where the trees attack and decided to make that their whole movie. But they didn't bother to find out how the other movie made it look so good. Basically a nuclear power plant is dumping toxic waste in the woods and it is making man eating plants. One of the things that bugged me about this movie was the poor radiation safety even from characters who are suppose to be experts. If you liked Troll 2 and are looking for something more of the same check this out otherwise, despite the promising sounding plot, stay away.

The Shining Parts 1-3 (1997) (DVD)
My Thoughts: Well like the rest of the world, I prefer the movie still. It is just all around a better product; from the acting, to location, to the effects, it's 70's counterpart is superior in every way. I do life that we get more of the story and I am sure this is closer to the original novel than the first movie but there are somethings they did here that just seem like they wanted to do it differently than the movie. Redrum for example, the whole purpose of that would be to finally see it in a mirro, not for it to CG morph into murder, lame. While I wasn't overtly pleased with this property I do think I am going to need to catch that Stephen King commentary at some point (all 4.5 hours of it)

Bob's Burgers S04E02 (2013) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: I really like this show and was really surprised when it made it past one season, on FOX no less! This episode centers on a creepy stalker that keeps Louise and her friends trapped during prime trick or treating time. It is a fun down to earth show and guest star Aziz Ansari was great. I can't wait to see this year's special, hopefully they can sync everything up this time.

Wishmaster 3: Beyond the Gates of Hell (2001) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: I kept asking myself while I watched if I actually liked the first 2. Certainly I must have liked them enough to put this on my amazon wish list 4 years ago, right? This one seems to be a copy of the first movie, if I remember correctly, except set on a college campus with people too old to be college students. Some interesting gory deaths here but otherwise there is no reason to watch this.

Requiem For A Vampire (1971) (DVD)
My Thoughts: The blond girl in this movie has always appealed to me, I feel like I have seen her in something else over the years but after checking IMDB it must have just been repeat revisiting of this film (in my early teen years undoubtedly). Not much of a plot here, most of the movie in fact is without dialog but it's not like you watch Jean Rollin movies for the plot anyways. Passable Rollin but not one of his better films.
(2.5 out of 5)
56.)
Absentia (2011) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Hey, the first Kickstarter movie I have ever purchased (after the fact). And that is something I probably never would have done both based on the supper generic cover and this article that was everywhere at the time: http://www.freddyinspace.com/2012/05...rk-latest.html . But I believe there was some positive buzz her on the forum on this one so I added it to the list. It was decent, super low budget, movie. I dug the idea behind it and this very well could have been a good 1hr show or intro to real movie. Think about it, make them less mystical and more an accent terror living under the city. And then we could have had an expedition to get back loved ones, now that would have been awesome. You will be entertained with this one but your socks will not be rocked.

The Fly II (1989) (DVD)
My Thoughts: I have always had a fond spot for this movie, I think I even preferred it to the original when I was younger. It defiantly skews to the male single child audience. I still felt some pause before picking this title up, a double dip on Fly II? And on DVD? But not BR and lots of bonus features on this one, also the $3 price point helped quite a bit. Anyway it is a good monster, obviously not in the same league as the first one but for a sequel with no returning main character it rocked. Also I dug the more Alien looking fly. And a Drewish princess!

B-14.
Ace: Hard Pumpkin Cider (California)*
My Thoughts: This is weird. Not the pumpkin cider as promised but an apple cider with pumpkin flavoring added to it. Very sweet (you know, like pumpkin) and lightly carbonated I think this cider actually gave me a headache. Either that or it could be unreleated workplace stress. It was ok for a cider, I am just not a cider guy.

Commentary For The Fly II (1989) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: This one seems a little too self-congradulatory. Participants include the director and an apparent Fly II super fan. It was kind of a weird track, talking much more about props and effects than things such as critical reaction or script to screen. It was an interesting distraction and in the end a decent track on a good movie.

The Funhouse (1981) (DVD)
My Thoughts: Top tier 80's slasher material. I love the location and the atmosphere, there is just something about a carnie going 'alive alive alive' in that weird voice though one of those cheap PAs. Still to this day my favorite thing at carnivals/fairs is the oddities tent. And yes I do often wonder what those creatures in the jars might have looked like when they were alive. I would say that this is arguably much less shocking than American Horror Story season 4 started out but easily much more entertaining. And can we talk about this supposedly portable fun house ride that is so intricate and cavernous on the inside that I would be hard pressed to compare it to anything outside of a major theme park. We had something similar here when I was a kid but it wasn't nearly as cool, I wonder if the Phantasmagoria of my youth drew some inspiration from this movie... And a quick google search says no: http://www.laffinthedark.com/article...tasmagoria.htm .

Catacombs (1988) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Modern day monks accidentally let lose a demon that had been trapped in their catacombs since the inquisition. Some interesting imagery in this movie, the most notable of which would be Jesus pulling out his nails, coming off the cross and stabbing a monk to death. Not a great movie but I sort of dug it, there is something about clergy fighting demons that is fun. And it also seems to be a running theme here for the first 2 Scream Factory Horror Marathon collections. This one has not faired as well as the first one but this title is a cheesy step in the right direction.

The Walking Dead S04E14-S05E01 (2014) (TV)*
My Thoughts: Rating and status as first time view for Season 5 premiere only. Carol FTW! Everyone was scattered to the wind the last few episodes of last season and there were some brutal story to be told; 'just look at the flowers', 'an ass end is still and end' and of course who can forget the near Carl rape. It was nice to get the crew back together, even if it was just in the same cattle car. This has probably been one of the most satisfying episodes of The Walking Dead since the original premiere. Also really liking this new Judge Dredd Rick!

Commentary For Friday The 13th (1980) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Skipped the deluxe editions so I was excited when I saw that the new features were carried over to this set (less so that I will be unable to get rid of From Crystal Lake to Manhattan since it's features for the most part weren't). This was an interview stitch commentary, something I am not really a fan of since it rarely reaches the awesome randomness of it's live counterparts. But this one was surprisingly great! Is what I would have said if I had never seen His Name Was Jason and Crystal Lake Memories. Moderated by the author of Crystal Lake Memories, the stitched together interviews are ones I have already heard in both aforementioned docs. As such this was pretty disappointing. Something new should really be recorded to complement this classic.

Sea Dog: Pumpkin (Maine)*
My Thoughts: Every time I think of this beer all I can think about is fictional Red Tick Beer. And it kind of does tastes life dirty dog water, at a pumpkin patch. A burnt, bitter, pumpkin disappointment. Not a fun beer, glad i didn’t get the 6 pack. Weird part is it smells like it should be delicious.
(2 out of 5)
B-16.
Southampton: Pumpkin Ale (New York)
My Thoughts: Ahh much better. A nice toasted barely punchy hoppy flavor. Perhaps a little heavy on the carbonation for a pumpkin beer but all around a solid beverage. Defiantly hits fall for me. Maybe a little on the ordinary side but compared to that dog beer I quite liked hit.

Final Exam (1981) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: So I sat down for this one expecting some cheesy 80s slasher goodness but ended up being disappointed. This skewed way more 70s for me also despite being made after Friday the 13th it seemed that they were really stuck on copying Halloween. A motiveless psycho attacking kids in a teeny tiny college has never been so bland. There was something likable about the cast though, especially the gay guy playing a straight character. I didn't really care for this movie but I am, ironically, looking forward to the cast commentary.

Necropolis (1986) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Now this was the schlocky 80s cheese-fest I was hoping for for the last movie! A punk rock, motorcycle riding, reincarnated witch turns her evil towards the inner city. Although it doesn't really seem like you would need mystical powers to get a junkie to kill themselves but she does it anyway. Be wary here though as this is 'so bad it is good' territory and as such you really need to be in the right mood. If this is a good example of what Empire Pictures was releasing at the time then no wonder they have gone out of business. And now I need to go hunt down other titles from their catalog.

The Eye 3 (2004) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: I missed The Eye 2 but they were good enough to put every Eye related trailer on this disc so I don't really feel like I missed all that much. Well that and the fact that this really wasn't a sequel to The Eye at all. It was more of a teen Chinese ghost story, although they do mention the events of the first movie in a campfire stories kind of way. Once you can separate yourself from the rest of the franchise this is actually a fairly interesting movie. Chinese ghosts are decidedly not scary, at least not to the audience. But a good bit of the humor translated quite nicely. I would give a mild recommendation but no one who wanted more of the first two movies is going to really care for this and people that weren't interested in them in the first place won't even look past the title. In fact I would be shocked if anyone was reading this right now. PM me if you are.

American Horror Story S04E02 (2014) (TV)*
My Thoughts: Some interesting developments this episode. The Strong Man, The Total Recall Woman and Dandy, who based on the episode preview I thought was sure to die this episode, really stepping it up into AHS territory. I haven’t been amazed yet but I have been entertained. Also Fiona Apple.
(3.5 out of 5)

Hatchet (2006) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: This tongue-in-cheek Friday The 13th Homage was delightful. I can't believe I have been putting off watching this for so long. The humor and over the top violence really worked for me. Actually reminded me a lot of that commercial they keep playing right now where the teens are trying to hide from an unseen assailant and decide against getting into the running car so that they can hide behind the chainsaws. I bought both this and the sequel due to all the positive buzz surrounding this property and I have to say I am relieved to not have to worry about that Hatchet 2 blu-ray sitting in my 'to watch' pile.
(4 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: (Her original review was lost in my mid month computer crash so these are her thoughts a week later after being primed with the trailer) It was great in the beginning and I was so terrified and scared but after that it is almost similar the horror kind of movie story wise. Ah it was a little bit gross in the middle and actor get shot several times and he does not die, I do not understand. He seem not the ghost he seems human but I am willing to watch second sequel I can give 3.5 star.

Intruder (1989) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Super low budget supermarket slasher. I got this DVD free from Full Moon due to some investing I did with them but was still a little bummed when the blu-ray came out as this one set in my 'to watch' pile. The movie it's self is fun in an 80's time capsule way, also being a retail employee this movie really hit home for me (much more even than other prominent retail based movies such as The Mist). I liked it but be forewarned that there is only a bit part for Campbell in this movie, even though the DVD claims to have him starring in said picture.
(3.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: Very strange ending was so many gross things but I did not expeected he is the murder. But little odd he can kill everyone without knowing. Like 6 employees there and no one knows he is doing? And poilice oficer is strange too. It was too gross so I can give only 3 star.

The Brood (1979) (DVD)
My Thoughts: Nothing like starting out the day with with some Cronenberg. You know I must have seen this movie 3 or 4 times over the years and without fail after awhile the only thing I remember about it is that opening monologue with Michelle. After watching this again I am surprised with how derivative The Possession actually was and how much I liked this. Maybe it took seeing it a couple times for this title to really click with me but I will sense forth be giving it the praise it deserves.
(4.5 out of 5)
70.) - 72.)
Commentary For Never Sleep Again (2010) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Now this is the commentary that Crystal Lake memories should have been. A boozed up retrospective retrospective. Maybe I am just suffering from F13 fatigue at this point but I just found this one so much more interesting. Nearly a perfect commentary (quite a feat for a 4 hour track) except for one caveat. There was some very blatant censoring of this track, I understand that this is unavoidable in some instances but I still hate it.
(4.5 out of 5)
B-17.
Beck's: Oktoberfest Lager (Germany)*
My Thoughts: Green bottle beer. Overly crisp, it has that cerveza bite to it followed by a heavier but cheap domestic finish. Not horrible but disappointing entry for a German brewery. Although not ever having had a Beck beer this may be par for the course.
(2.5 out of 5)
B-18.
Choc Beer: Choctoberfest (Oklahoma)
My Thoughts: A superior beer to the last one for sure but this still doesn't capture Oktoberfest for me. It is a fine microbrew with just a hint of fig, just no Germany here. Not that you can really expect that from an Oklahoma brewery, being a relative new player on the scene. If perchance anyone from Choc, Marshal or Prairie Farm is reading this I am available for hire. People/account management skills, beer oriented pallet, extensive horror movie collection. PM me.
(3 out of 5)
73.)
The Exorcism Of Emily Rose (2005) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I skipped this one the first time around due to the rating but last challenge it was favorably mentioned in a commentary I enjoyed and there was a dirt cheap unrated version. It was decent, I liked the courtroom aspect as a way to break up the exorcism but found myself disappointed in ending. It did give me a few goosebumpy moments though which it enough to just push it over average.
(3.5 out of 5)
B-19.
Ayinger: Oktober Fest Marzen (Germany)*
My Thoughts: Now this is a good German beer. A product of the much vaulted German Purity Law this is one of those beers that is delicious chilled or warm. Smooth wheaty beer with just a hint of a bite that finishes on some nice light barley notes. Excellent beer.

The Video Dead (1987) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: There was something charming about this very uneven movie. Horrible acting with decent effects this movie screams 80's and easily falls into 'so bad it's good' territory. It has been awhile since I have seen Raiders of The Living Dead but I got the strong vibe that this might be it's bedfellow. In a nutshell; a boy and his sister must fight demon zombies released from an evil tv. And the movie is just as ridiculous as it sounds (not over the top ridiculous but like Troll 2 with a budget ridiculous). And again here is another movie that I am shocked has 2 commentary tracks! I will defiantly be checking out the cast track after this challenge (or maybe even looking forward to it for the next one).

The Las Vegas Serial Killer (1986) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Barley a movie, this is more string of tourist videos inter-spliced with some horrible actors servicing a worse plot. The movie focuses on a pair of muggers who also enjoy watching the city and commenting on the cars and people passing by and a recently released killer who seeks out beautiful women to strangle (fortunately ones who are often naked). A low point in the challenge but no anywhere near Zombie Driftwood bad, in fact a MST3K track would benefit this movie quite nicely.

The Walking Dead S05E02 (2014) (TV)*
My Thoughts: Things were going too good and Bob was way way too happy. This episode had some of the best zombie effects in the series and we are finally back to post apocalyptic scavenging (my favorite). The preacher is a character I already don't like, not that I think he is dangerous for the group or anything, I just find him annoying. Some interesting questions raised this episode; will eating the meat of an infective person change the eater, how strong are the Holy Rollers, is Washington still in operation? Arguably the best show on TV right now, my big hope for the series is that they finally make their ay back into the city, it would be way more entertaining than constantly being in the boonies.

Vampires (1998) (DVD)
My Thoughts: I remember really liking this when I was younger but this time around I wasn't super impressed. I enjoyed the whole church sponsored vampire hunting but Woods 80's movie anti-hero seemed to stick out like a sore thumb. That and a lesser Baldwin really brought this property down over the long run. Otherwise it was average vampire fair. Not bad but not anywhere near the league of Carpenter's other projects.

Woodchuck Hard Cider: Pumpkin (Vermont)*
My Thoughts: This one is much better than the last pumpkin cider. First off this one actually hits cider as opposed to just a carbonated apple beverage like the last one. Lightly carbonated with a interesting melody taste (like cran apple except pump apple). Best enjoyed cold as it gets a little weird as it warms.
(3.5 out of 5)
77.5)
Central Park Drifter (1987) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Finally a disappointing 80's movie. It was getting to the point there were it seemed like I was giving every thing the green light there just based on the decade. Despite the title which would make me think this movie was of the serial killer variety, this movie is actually about a vampire cabby who prefers meaningful relationships with his victims and only bites them in the breasts. It was a bit boring and hokey, felt more like bad 80's tv than a bad 80's movie. I actually felt myself wishing I was watching Vampire In Brooklyn instead.

The Night Flier (1997) (VHS)
My Thoughts: A charming smaller scale Stephen Kind adaptation. It really feels like the 90's direct to video product that it is but that's not really a bad thing. The guy who created RoboCop is a cut throat tabloid journalist on the tale of a Cessna flying vampire. I remember not being too into the creature effects when this first came out but now after a couple decades of CGI I really liked it. It does sort of feel like a stretched short story but I liked it, enough to hold onto this metallic VHS release all these years.

Forever Knight S02E01-12 (1994 - 1995) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: When compared to something like Friday The 13th the series this show is a lot more even in quality. In fact I reminds me a lot of Alien Nation, not only quality wise but theme wise as well; genre buddy cop show where one of the cops is trying to integrate into society. The show never reaches levels of OMG like some current shows do for me but it also hasn’t disappointed me thus far either and that in it’s self is a welcome development. Run on sentences!
(3.5 - 4 out of 5)
B-21.
Rouge Farms: Pumpkin Patch Ale (Oregon)
My Thoughts: Second year for the big orange bottle and this year I went in without the expectations and generally liked it a little better. It has a nice wheaty lager base with an earthy pumpkin subtext, wouldn’t call it the best pumpkin beer, and it can get a bit liquorishy but it was pretty good.
(3.5 out of 5)
85.)
American Horror Story S04E03 (2014) (TV)*
My Thoughts: First part of a double Halloween episode was decent, although I think it would have been better if they had done them back to back. This one was was more of the same, again entertaining but not sock rocking. I did enjoy the addition of the freak hunters though, that could lead down some interesting roads.
(3.5 out of 5)
86.)
Nightmare Sisters (1988) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: For a movie that stars the 80's scream queen dream team there is an unforgivably low level of picture quality on this disc. If there is one thing (or two things) that you want to see with some clarity... That aside this is an awful 80's horror movie and only recommendable to contours of such trash. There is not enough here to up this into the league of something like Sorority Babes In The Slimeball Bowl-A-Rama, all it really is is a vehicle for boobs. I still enjoyed it and it also has the oddly likable Richard Gabai but man I would really have liked a nice clear presentation of this one.

Carrie (2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Full disclosure; I have not seen the entire original Carrie but only about the first 20 minutes and excerpts from the ending on various tv shows over the decades. After revealing that little bit of horror shame I have to say I really liked this movie or to be more accurate the last half of this movie. Chloe is just much to pretty to be so unpopular and one needs to suspend a lot of disbelief to get past that one. After that though, this is a great telekinetic revenge flick. Loved the effects, the mom, Carrie and am now really looking forward to the original which I bought with this one last black Friday. They are all going to laugh at you.
(4 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: This is the best horror movie ever in this month. I like it but I believe some story change. I don’t think original movie is that ending, I need see original again. I will give 4 star demo it’s choto too bloody that ending. It’s sad ne? That Sue lady is good it’s just… didn’t listen to her.

House On Haunted Hill (1959) (DVD)
My Thoughts: Ah, one of the first DVDs I ever bought. The house in this version of the story is not quite so opulent or interesting as it is in later tellings and neither is the prize. Only $10,000 is offered per guest in this one, which is about $80k today. Comparatively on the more recent House On Haunted Hill the prize was $1,000,000 (which is about $1.4 million dollars today (man I feel old)). This one wasn't as good as the remake but it was at least more original and had a caddy Vincent Price. I wonder if this was ever scary as it is often laudably bad now. Still a fun watch though.

Dial: Help (1988) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: WTF did I just watch? There is a model being harassed by a paranormal entity that has decided that the telephone was the haunting medium of choice. There are multiple violent telephone attacks, over the telephone POV shots, public phones giving the girl money and yes even phone sex (with a phone, not with a person on the other end of one). So I feel like I have just described an amazing movie but that this property is not. It is a near nonsensical barely passible, due to a few cool effect, mess. Now if the leading lady had shown a little more skin I might have been singing a different tune (I mean come on, this is an Italian movie!).
(3 out of 5)
90.)
Bio-Zombie (1998) (VHS)
My Thoughts: I have a long relationship with this movie. Originally I hated it for not sticking closer to Romero zombie rules. But since I purchased in my younger days, when I couldn't afford to buy movies all the time, it grew on me during repeated veiwings. It's basically a mini Chinese comedy version of Dawn Of The Dead that heavily features the GameBoy Camera. It is a little hard to relate to this movie at first as almost everyone in it is an awful person but when you get into that anti-hero mentality there is something about this cast that really works. I fell in love with ridiculous dubbing on this one over the years and when I eventually picked it up on DVD I was supremely disappointed with the original audio track. Normally I always prefer the subbed version but there is something about Chinese comedies specifically that just play so much better dubbed (with the notable exception of Category 3 films).

Sierra Nevada: Oktoberfest (California)*
My Thoughts: There are a lot of hops in this marzen. At first sip it taste it taste like your more standard micro brew, hoppy with some punch on top but the finish is that marzen specific caramel. A decent beer but not quite what I am looking for in an Oktoberfest. There has been a lot of meh beers this year. Perhaps next year I will just re-buy the 4.5's and 5's and do a different side project.
(3 out of 5)

Full Sail: Oktoberfest Lager (Oregon)*
My Thoughts: Feels like a beer with an identity crisis, that or a good beer watered down with a bd beer. There are hints of apple and it has a slightly burnt bitter finish. And while that sounds intriguing the end product struck me a pedestrian effort. Cannot recommend.
(2.5 out of 5)
B-24.
Paulaner Oktoberfest Marzen (Germany)
My Thoughts: Nothing like having this after some American beers to really show off how the Germans have protected this craft. Excellent, delicious, mildly creamy, not hoppy, wonderful, amber grainy flavor with just a mild hint of white grape to it. Now this is a beer for adults. Wrestled with giving this a 4.5 as aftertaste could have been a hair smoother, but as this has been hands down my favorite beer of the challenge thus far I couldn't possibly give it anything less than a 5 out of 5.

91.)
Phantasm IV: Oblivion (1998) (DVD)
My Thoughts: This one seemed more like an excuse to show clips from the previous 3 movies as oppose to really deliver on the unique creepiness that is the series hallmark. The cast is getting pretty old at this point and it is starting to distract from the narrative. As much as I love Reggie there is no way a hot chick is going to be sharing a bed with him anymore and any that do are obviously minions of the tall man (I mean come Reggie, everyone in the audience saw that one coming a mile away). And that brings us to the high water mark of this movie, which way the sphere boobs. Otherwise, as a Phantasm fan, I was pretty much constantly throughout the length of this feature. I will give this one nod though, in the credits there was a link to The Phantasm website which I did checkout just to see if it was still active. While on the site I ran into the trailer for the upcoming 2015 part 5 that I had no idea existed, and admittedly looked pretty good, so I at least got that out of this.

Return Of The Fly (1959) (DVD)*
My Thoughts:My first thought on this one was how is this guy going to make the exact same mistake as his father. After Price retells the events of the first movie I am still going to work on the project, but with one rule; absolutely no living thing through the machine. To tell you the truth I would even be worried about using an item like this that worked perfectly. Think about it: it deconstructs you down to molecules and then builds you again just how you were. Sounds to me like it kills you and then builds a copy of you somewhere else. And the kicker would be that one would ever know because the copies would have the same memories and think that they were the original people. Back to the Fly, it was a decent followup, this time there was a villain responsible for the transmutation disasters. There is a lot of the same 'don't look at me' type stuff here but there is also some other interesting animal people fusions. I liked it and it does have that Universal monsters equal vibe. And really it's just worth it for Vincent Price talking about the murderous brain of the common house fly. Glad I picked up this collection (although that Vincent Price Collection blu...).

Curse Of The Fly (1965) (DVD)*
My Thoughts:I actually liked this one better than the previous sequel. More sci-fi than horror this time and now we have two groups of scientist who are working on machines in London and Canada. But they are still sending people thru them!!! The plot to this one otherwise is super surreal. A hot escaped mental patient falls in love with one of the teleporting scientists and then she discovers the accidents he has locked up outside. And there is a white chick with prosthetics on playing a crafty asian housekeeper, it is just ridiculous fun.

House On Skull Mountain (1974) (DVD)*
My Thoughts:Not quite the blaxploitation I was hoping for. It was a more vanilla voodoo curse movie. There were hints here and there as to what this could have been but it is just played too straight. I think I originally bought this because it was featured in one of the past banners which upon, a buying strategy I may have to revisit. But the double bill with this one has had some positive buzz so far this challenge so I do have that going for me.

Oculus (2013) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Intriguing movie, I love that whole historical evil thing. And maybe one of the better mind fuck movies of recent memory. It actually reminded me somewhat of Blair Witch 2 (a movie I liked but that no one else seemingly did) with all the unconscious directed actions. I liked the way it was edited but I do feel it was a little gimmicky and that if it was re-edited in a chronological manner that it would not be as effective. Now the big question is why would you attempt to do this with 2 people? Also the very first thing to do after the cellphone discovery is to create a head rig. I feel that is you are reading this right now that you have already seen the movie, if not stop now. I could really do for a sequel to this but it would have to a resolution sequel, I really don't feel like this property could carry a trilogy. Holy crap, I was just about to put a pin in it until I realized this is a modern day Friday The 13th The Series episode!!! Have Ryan pick up what is left of the mirror after the sequel, it could be a post credits scene with no dialog, it would be an amazing 2%er reference. Also while we are making odd pop culture connections, do you think that this was Starbucks first life on Earth? A BSG prequel?

My Wife's Thoughts: Beginning was interesting but middle of the movie was a little slow and iI don’t care sometime just back and forth the time frame but ending was pretty good. And I do not understand why brother and sister want to try and find out the past then they don’t do that. It is not horror, just creepy movie but I can give 4 star, 4 star creepy.

Commentary For The Creature From The Back Lagoon 3D (1954) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts:Yes I did watch the 3D version with the commentary turned on and I felt a little weird about it too. On the 3D I was pleased, surprisingly so given the age of this picture and am now defiantly going to pick up the other 50's 3D blu that are out there. This was a good track and very similar to the one on Godzilla but the historian did lack a little bit of the polish that the one on Godzilla had. Also it did seem like they were speeding up his audio from time to time. A track I enjoyed though, and on my favorite Universal horror property.

The Walking Dead S05E03 (2014) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: A tasty episode. But really we all knew Bob was going to die when they introduced him last season. I liked the resolution with the Termites so that we can now push forward to other plots threads, and maybe finally get back to the city. My current guess about Daryl's mysterious guest is Beth and a bunch of other young girls he has rescued from the holy rollers. I think this show is ruining me for other zombie properties.

Forever Knight S02E13-26 (1995) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: So... much... Forever Knight.... After binging on season 2 I have to have season 3. They are in the $40 range on e-bay but it just seems so expensive for an older TV DVD set, even though I can remember a time when I wouldn't bat an eye plucking down $100 for a season set. There was this one amazing episode in this round where they discovered a meteor headed towards Earth and everything was going to hell. It eventually turned out to be a hoax but man if this series had gone that way like Dollhouse with Epithet, it would have been amazing. This was some good TV.
(2.5 - 4 out of 5)

Adventure Time: Ghost Fly (2014) (TV) (Wildcard #1)*
My Thoughts: I used to look down on people who watched Adventure Time and now... I still probably do. But it can be a deeply enjoyable show. This was admittedly not one of the better episodes but as a one off Halloween episode I liked it. A nice little blend of Poltergeist and The Fly, although every time I see an animated Fly creation I always think of Bart Fly. It was a nice little challenge distraction. Also I did love the extending the Circle Of Protection scene, I have always thought about that.
(3 out of 5)
B-25.
Avery Brewing Company: The Beast Grand Cru (Colorado)*
My Thoughts: Buzzes girlfriend, woof. A bitter, tar liquorish ashtray kind of ale that felt more like a chore than a refreshing beverage. It was like I was forcing myself to drink some weird disgusting beer chemical concoction. Academically interesting but patently awful. It is of note that this beer is 16% alcohol. Soy sauce, some vinegar and some other type of liquor put together, smells like soy… choto kusai.
(1 out of 5)
B-26.
Anderson Valley: Fall Hornin' (Colorado)
My Thoughts: Not a good beer, it was that weird river water taste and doesn’t really hit pumpkin and for that matter even really pumpkin spice. There is a little nutmeg and it admitably does fair better in comparison to that first beer.
(2.5 out of 5)
B-27.
Tallgrass: Zombie Monkie (Kansas)*
My Thoughts: Very similarly bad like The Beast. This one was a little less wood lacker and a little more burnt coffee. It did have a cool can though. But next time I need to take some hints fro can art, undead monkey does not evoke a sense of refreshment. It was like Bigfoot Ale all over again.
(1.5 out of 5)
105.5)
Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: Decided to watch tonights subset pick even though me and the wife watched it a few challenges back. More so because my 'to watch' pile was nearly devoid of acceptable theme night candidates. This is one of the stronger Friday sequels, and I have fond memories of watching heavily truncated versions of it on USA growing up. Carrie meets Jason was no more out of bounds than the Dream Warriors, it was the 80's after all.
(3.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: This is my second or third time watching this movie so I knew the ending. It is ok Jason series. Some Movie use lady has magical power or lady use magical power so I not surprised. But why she not kill Jason?

Rats: Night Of Terror (1984) (DVD)*
My Thoughts:Set 100 years after the nuclear was of 2015, a group of typical post apocalyptic ruffians arrive in a seemingly abandoned town. There were aspects to this movie I really liked but the big problem here is that they just meandered on shots way too long. Like lets throw a bucket of rats at something and then just shoot it for 5 minutes. You could cut 20-30 minutes out of this movie and have a much stronger film (much stronger in the 'so bad it's good' territory). But of course if you did that you would have people like me clamoring for the original director's cut. I can't really recommend this movie but if you have a chance to at least catch the ending, do it.
(2.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: First of all this is not 2015 at all, it looks like 70's. Even nuclear war doesn't look like that. And that is little gross and that come from someones body... it's eww. And I love that ending; rat people. But I don't think this movie did well, choto stupid.

107.)
American Horror Story S04E04 (2014) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: And so closes the clowns story, kind of a surprise, I really thought he would be a continuing menace through the series. And his backstory, damn. So we are left with Dandy and the collectors as our big bads for the rest of the season. I am not super enthusiastic about those options but am down to see how it will play out.
(4 out of 5)
108.)
Sherlock Holmes: Faces Of Death (1943) (Internet) (Wildcard #2)*
My Thoughts:Sherlocks fore into snuff? Not quite. Trying to hit one of the checklist checks I fell down the imdb rabbit hole and came up with this movie which hits no checks and really isn't even horror (thus the wildcard usage). It was good Holmes though, and a story that I was unfamiliar with which was a plus. They mention corpse lights toward the beginning and I wonder if they are talking about illuminated swamp gas as ghosts? Anyway I am always a little sad though when old european houses have such awesome secrets. I found a bottle of vodka and some thumb tacks left behind by the previous owner of my house and that is about it... I also like the whole keep fighting the good fight WWII message at the end.
(3.5 out of 5)
109.)
A Blade In The Dark (1983) (DVD)
My Thoughts: The story revolves around a man who is creating the score for a horror movie and starts to get the notion that women seem to be disappearing around him. It was a decent Giallo, with plenty of red herrings, murder chases and loose women. Not as good as the stuff Argento was making around this time but it defiantly hits all the bullet points. Also it has that little blond kid who was in everything at the time.
(3.5 out of 5)
B-28.
Leinenkugel: Harvest Patch Shandy (Wisconson)*
My Thoughts: First can of the challenge and it really feels like slumming it. Did not dig this pumpkin flavor, it skews somewhat chemically and over carbonated. There is some pumpkin spice in here but nothing really tastes right. And it sours a bit as it warms.
(2 out of 5)
B-29.
Warsteiner: Oktoberfest (Germany)*
My Thoughts: An excellent, drinkable, nicely balanced Oktoberfest ale. This one is actually a staple of my local Oktoberfest celebration, I have several fond memories associated with this brew. My pallet has grown a bit since then though but this still skews above average (just not top tier for German beer).
(3.5 out of 5)
B-30.
Boulevard: Bob’s ’47 Oktoberfest (Kansas)*
My Thoughts: A decent Octoberfest brew, from Kansas no less. A little more wheat flavor that the last beer this was also a lighter smoother more marzen style beer. I think this might have scored even a little higher if not for the slightly mis-matched bite on the tail end. I have intentionally passed over Boulevard in that past as I did not like their art direction but after this I might have to give a few of their other beers a shake.

1. The Sacrament 2. Carrie



As much as I enjoy this time of year, I'm going to have to call it a day. I've dealt with depression my entire life which came to a head a few weeks ago when I attempted suicide only to be saved at the last minute by a relative. I'm now getting help. I feel normal for the first time in a long time, but it really put a kabosh on my horror movie viewings.

I will probably delete this post later on, just wanted to post a quick update.

Thank you!

9/30/14

1) The Uninvited (1943) - Dude (Ray Milland) and his sister buy a haunted house.

10/1/14

2) Körkarlen (The Phantom Carriage) (1921) - Drunk asshole dies just before midnight on New Year's Eve, so he has to take over as the Grim Reaper for a year. However, his old friend, who, coincidentally, died just before midnight last New Year's Eve and is the current Grim Reaper, decides to give him the Scrooge treatment and show him the error of his asshole-ish ways.
3) Stalled (2013) - Maintenance guy gets trapped in the ladies' room by zombies. Meh.
4) Zombie Ass: The Toilet of the Dead (Zonbi asu) (2011) - Shitty (literally and figuratively) Japanese flick. Parasites turn people into zombies with gastrointestinal distress. Lots of fart jokes, if you're into that sort of stuff.
5) The Undertaker and His Pals (1966) - Three guys kill people and use the bodies for profit. I've seen worse.

10/2/14

6) The ABCs of Death (2012) - Oh goody, more Japanese fart jokes (by the same director, no less). 26 segments by different directors. A few segments were okay, but it mostly sucked.
7) The Carrier (1987) - After being clawed by "the black thing," a guy is cursed/contaminated and everything he touches becomes deadly to humans, and bugs, and cats (what's with all the cats?). Not bad, but it got hard to tell who was who after the cast started wearing those plastic burkas.
8) Sleepaway Camp (1983) - Guy and his cousin go to camp. People start to die.
9) Sleepaway Camp 2: Unhappy Campers (1988) - Killer from the first movie, now grown up, goes to another camp, as a counselor, and kills several people.

10/3/14

10) Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland (1988) - More of the same.
11) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) - Dead child murderer visits teenagers in their dreams and kills them.
12) A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985) - Five years after the events in the first film, a teenage boy moves into Nancy's old house on Elm Street and becomes possessed by Freddy, who can now move into the real world.
13) A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987) - Nancy, now an undergraduate, gets a job helping "the last Elm St. kids" battle Freddy in their dreams.
14) Scar (2007) - Woman who survived torture as a teenager returns to her hometown, and, surprise, people start turning up dead.

10/4/14

15) Deadheads (2011) - Pretty good zomcom/buddy picture about two guys who wake up to discover they are zombies, then decide to go on a road trip to find one guy's old girlfriend so he can propose to her.
16) Frankenstein's Army (2013) - Soviet soldiers battle a bunch of silly looking Nazi man-made monsters. The first person, "found footage" filming style made it a lot like watching someone else playing a video game.
17) Cockneys vs Zombies (2012) - A group of bank robbers, and some old-age pensioners, battle zombies. Pretty good zomcom.

10/5/14

18) Shaun of the Dead (2004) - Group of friends hide out in a pub during zombie apocalypse. Been a while since I last watched this (OHMC #1, I think), and it holds up really well.
19) Cat People (1982) - Dude's (Malcolm McDowell) long-lost sister (Nastassja Kinski) comes to live with him and she soon discovers that their family is cursed.
20) The Wicker Man (1973) - Policeman (Edward Woodward) goes to an island to investigate a girl's disappearance. Classic musical/horror movie, also stars Christopher Lee, Britt Ekland, and Ingrid Pitt.

10/6/14

21) Evil Dead (2013) - Reboot/remake. Five friends go to a cabin in the woods, find a book, and unleash evil. Not bad.
22) The Comedy of Terrors (1963) - Undertaker (Vincent Price) and his assistant (Peter Lorre) turn to murder to get new clients. Boris Karloff and Basil Rathbone round out the classy cast.

10/7/14

23) The Raven (1963) - A magician (Peter Lorre) seeks help from another magician (Vincent Price) to battle a third, evil magician (Boris Karloff).
24) Carrie (2013) - Surprisingly good new adaptation of the Stephen King novel about an adolescent girl with telekinesis.
25) Phantom of the Paradise (1974) - Music producer (Paul Williams) steals songs from a songwriter and some other crap happens in this sort of re-imagining of The Phantom of the Opera. Jessica Harper was in it, so there was some reason to watch.

10/8/14

26) Strippers vs. Werewolves (2011) - What the title said. It didn't completely suck.

10/9/14

27) From Dusk Till Dawn (1995) - Two murderous thieves go to Mexico, where they end up at a bar staffed by the undead.

10/10/14

28) Vampiros Lesbos (Vampyros Lesbos) (1971) - Jess Franco lesbian vampire movie surprisingly not based on Carmilla (it seemed to be loosely based on Dracula instead).
29) The Vampire Lovers (1970) - Hammer lesbian vampire movie based on Carmilla.
30) Countess Dracula (1970) - Countess (Ingrid Pitt) discovers that she can make her skin appear younger by bathing in virgin's blood in this Elizabeth Bathory inspired story.

10/11/14

31) Lust For a Vampire (1970) - In this sort of sequel to The Vampire Lovers, Marcilla/Mircalla/Carmilla Karnstein ends up at a girls' finishing school.
32) Twins of Evil (1971) - Another "sort of" sequel. Marcilla/Mircalla/Carmilla Karnstein is revived long enough to set things in motion by turning a descendant of hers into a vampire.
33) From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money (1998) - A group of thieves rob a bank. Vampires are involved. Goofy fun, but nothing memorable.
34) The Evil Dead (1982) - A group of friends go to a cabin in the woods, find a book, and unleash evil.
35) Evil Dead II (1987) - After a short recap/remake of the events in the first flick, this one picks up where the last one ended.

10/12/14

36) Tôkaidô Yotsuya kaidan (The Ghost of Yotsuya) (1959) - Ronin kills his wife. She haunts him. Some really good, creepy imagery in this one.
37) Buried Alive (1989) - Woman (Ginger Lynn) goes to teach at an insane asylum/girls' school run by Robert Vaughn and Donald Pleasence. John Carradine pops up now and then. Should've been better with that cast.
38) Buried Alive (1990) - Woman (Jennifer Jason Leigh) tries to kill her husband (Tim Matheson). He gets buried alive, but digs himself out of his grave to seek revenge. This could just be the only movie I've ever seen with Jennifer Jason Leigh where she didn't take off her clothes. Still a fun flick.
39) I Bury the Living (1957) - Richard Boone becomes the new director at a cemetery and discovers that people die if he puts black pins in a map instead of white pins.

10/13/14

40) Dead Before Dawn (2012) - Man did this one suck. Kids playing around in one guy's uncle's (Christopher Lloyd - who didn't help this one any) occult store bust an urn and release a curse that turns people into zombie-demons (or maybe it was demon-zombies - I really don't care enough to check).
41) Deathmaster (1972) - Vampire hangs out with some hippies. Meh.
42) Teenage Exorcist (1991) - Chick (Brinke Stevens) moves into a haunted house and becomes possessed. Meh, at least Brinke was cute, but what's with her staying dressed the entire film? First Jennifer Jason Leigh, now Brinke Stevens.
43) The Blob (1958) - Meteor falls near small town releasing a man-eating blob, and it's up to Steve McQueen and some other "teens" to warn the townspeople before the blob eats them all.

10/14/14

44) Daughter of Horror (Dementia) (1955) - This is the film that's playing in the theater when the blob eats the projectionist. Woman wonders around skid row while Ed McMahon says some stuff. I'm sure someone somewhere thought this was "art."
45) The Green Slime (1968) - Decided to watch another film (like The Blob) with a great theme song. Astronauts go into space to destroy an asteroid before it hits earth, then bring an alien back to their space station.
46) Devil Story (Il était une fois ..le diable ~Devil Story~) (1986) - Ouch. This one was painful. Some odd looking guy kills some people. Then an old guy tells a story about a ship coming back from Egypt that crashed nearby. Then he grabs a shotgun and runs outside to take potshots at a horse. A mummy shows up. Hell, watch it yourself if you want to try to figure out whatever-the-hell it was supposed to be about.
47) The Lost Boys (1987) - After her divorce, a mom and her two teenaged sons move to a town infested with vampires.

10/15/14

48) Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008) - Okay sequel has a surfer and his sister moving to a town infested with surfing vampires.
49) Goo chak sam fong fong (The Death Curse) (2003) - Old guy invites his eight kids from his seven late wives to his house for a reunion, but dies before they arrive. Stuff happens.

10/16/14

50) Bio-Zombie (Sun faa sau si) (1998) - Two slacker movie pirates who sell VCDs at a mall fight zombies. Not bad.

10/17/14

51) Doc of the Dead (2014) - Documentary about zombie movies.
52) Death Dorm (The Dorm That Dripped Blood) (1981) - Group of college kids cleaning out a building over Christmas vacation start dying off one by one.
53) I Dismember Mama (Poor Albert and Little Annie) (1972) - Nutcase escapes from nuthouse looking to kill his mama. Ends up killing her maid and kidnapping the maid's daughter.
54) Mama (2013) - Two missing little girls are found living in a cabin in the woods, and brought back to civilization to live with their uncle. Something tags along.
55) The People Under the Stairs (1991) - Three guys break into a house to steal stuff and end up fighting the loony homeowners. Sucked.

10/18/14

56) Hack-O-Lantern (Halloween Night) (1988) - Guy's crazy uncle wants to initiate him into his coven, or something. Sucked.
57) Sledgehammer (1984) - Group of friends stay in a farmhouse where years before someone was murdered. People start dying. Sucked.
58) Texas Chainsaw (Texas Chainsaw 3D) (2013) - Sort of sequel to the original. Girl inherits property in Texas and discovers that Leatherface comes with it. Nothing great, but the 3D effects were pretty good.

10/19/14

59) Van Helsing (2004) - Van Helsing hunts and kills monsters for the Vatican. I saw this less than ten years ago, and remembered next to nothing about it. Now I see why.
60) Opera (1987) - Killer stalks opera singer. Kills people. Meh.

10/20/14

61) Bordello of Blood (Tales from the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood) (1996) - Female vampire runs a whorehouse out of a mortuary.
62) From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter (2000) - In this prequel, Ambrose Bierce and some banditos end up at the bar seen in the other two films. I liked it better than the second one.

10/21/14

63) Sexcula (1974) - Dr. Fallatingstein's new creation, Frank, has a malfunctioning part, so she sends for her cousin, Countess Sexcula, to try to fix the problem.
64) Harold's Going Stiff (2012) - Shot in documentary style, following Harold, his nurse, three volunteer zombie hunters, and a doctor working on a cure. Sucked for a good half hour or so, but then finally found its story (the relationship between Harold and the nurse) and got really good.
65) Christine (1983) - Teen buys an evil car.

10/22/14

66) Orphan (2009) - After their third child dies, a man and woman decide to adopt. Surprise, the new addition to their family is evil.

10/23/14

67) Oculus (2013) - Chick and her brother try to prove that something evil resides inside a mirror that was once owned by their father.
68) Friday the 13th (1980) - Group of camp counselors working to open up a closed summer camp start dying off one by one.
69) Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981) - Five years after the first film, a group of people at a counselor training center across the lake from Camp Crystal Lake start dying off one by one.
70) A Bay of Blood (Twitch of the Death Nerve) (1971) - After an old couple is killed, their heirs and some miscellaneous people start killing each other to try to get their hands on some property. I'd seen this before, but didn't remember much of it.
71) Strait-Jacket (1963) - Twenty years after killing her husband (Lee Majors) with an axe, Joan Crawford is released from the asylum and goes to live with her daughter, her brother and his wife, and their farmhand (George Kennedy).
72) Grace (2009) - Pregnant woman's husband and baby die in a car crash, but she decides to carry the baby to term. Then there's some blood, swarms of flies, no story worth watching.

10/24/14

73) Friday the 13th Part III (1982) - A group of friends go to a farmhouse near Camp Crystal Lake and get killed, in 3D.
74) Lost Boys: The Thirst(2010) - Another Lost Boys sequel. Vampire hunter, Edgar Frog, is hired by a vampire romance novelist to save her brother from vampires. Not bad for what it is.
75) Night of the Living Dead (1968) - Diverse group of people board themselves up in a farmhouse and fight zombies and each other.

10/25/14

76) The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971) - Organist/inventor who supposedly died in a car accident kills the doctors and nurse who he blames for his wife's death.
77) Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972) - Phibes goes to Egypt looking for an ancient river that will resurrect his dead wife, and kills a few more people along the way.

10/26/14

78) The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999) - Girl with telekinesis gets picked on, and eventually kills a bunch of high school kids. Amy Irving plays Sue Snell, now a guidance counselor, or principal, or something, and they throw in a bunch of random clips from Carrie. Not a terrible movie, but there's no reason for it to have been a sequel, except to maybe sell a few theater tickets.
79) Outpost (2007) - Guy hires some mercenaries to go with him to an old Nazi outpost.
80) The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) - Hammer version of Frankenstein starring Peter Cushing as the doctor and Christopher Lee as the monster.
81) Horror of Dracula (1958) - Hammer version of Dracula starring Christopher Lee as Dracula and Peter Cushing as Van Helsing.
82) The Exorcist ("The Version You've Never Seen") (1973/2000) - After her daughter starts acting strange, a mother takes the girl to doctors and psychiatrists, then eventually calls in the exorcist. I watched "The Version You've Never Seen," or as I now call it, "The Version I Hope to Never See Again." The dozen or so new "subliminal" shots ruined it for me. Talk about overkill.

10/27/14

83) Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) - Girl possessed in original movie is still sort of possessed. She, her psychiatrist, and a priest hook up to a Vulcan mind meld machine and see a bunch of locusts, so the priest goes traveling the world. I'm pretty sure I haven't watched this one (at least not entirely) since I was disappointed by it in the theater back when it was originally released. Still stinks, but at least I knew that going in.
84) Dracula (1931) - Universal classic version of Dracula with Bela Lugosi as the count.
85) Dracula (Spanish Version) (1931) - Shot on the same sets as the Lugosi version. The actor playing Dracula stinks, but this version is actually the better of the two in some ways.
86) The Theatre Bizarre (2011) - Chick goes into an old theater where she gets to listen to Udo Kier ramble on about something or another and watch some so-so short horror flicks.

10/28/14

88) The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) - Group of friends on a road trip run into a cannibal family in Texas.
89) Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954) - Scientists looking for fossils find a living relic, in 3D. I watched this a few years ago in anaglyph 3D using my old projector, and as cool as it was, it couldn't hold a candle to how good it looks on 3D Blu-ray on my new projector.
90) The Wolf Man (1941) - Lon Chaney, Jr. gets bitten by a werewolf (Bela Lugosi) and becomes a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the Autumn moon is bright.

10/29/14

91) Dawn of the Dead (1978) - Romero classic about a group of survivors, a bunch of zombies, and a shopping mall.

★★★★★ Awww snap!
★★★★ Excellent
★★★(+) Very Good, I enjoyed it
★★★(-) Good, I didn't dislike it
★★ Sucked
★ Made me angry

Trope sitch:
Can you hear me now? = No cell service
Killer comeback = Wait, the killer (or victim) isn't dead?
Not Muffy! = Pet death
The old flambé = Someone catches on fire
A guy named Josh = Ok, I'm just trying this one out



Cheer when you hear the name of the movie!

Oct 1
1. The Battery* (2012) ★★★(-)
I hate baseball. America's favorite pastime. It's too leisurely. Much like this movie. Two guys wander the countryside fighting a handful of zombies. You've got baseball. Crappy music. Music video montages. Long-assed scenes. A solid 6 minutes is spent just looking at one of the guys trapped in his car. The quotes on the box RAVE about this flick. One critic claimed it was highly ambitious. I thought it was flat-out lazy. The "Annie" subplot was semi-interesting, although they bailed out on that, too.
Scorecard - Can you hear me now?: 0 / Killer comeback: 0 / Not Muffy!: X (discussed) / The old flambé: 0 / A guy named Josh: 0

2. Cabin Fever: Patient Zero* (2014) ★★★(+)
Marcus and Kate are getting married. The groom's buds take him to a deserted island (or is it?) for a bachelor party. Sean Astin is Patient Zero, a pandemic carrier who shows no symptoms. He is quarantined because he may hold the cure. It ain't perfect, but it provides some fun and some great gory effects. Certainly better than part 2.
Scorecard - Can you hear me now?: X / Killer comeback: 0 / Not Muffy!: 0 / The old flambé: 0 / A guy named Josh: X (that paid off soon enough)


Oct 2
3. All Cheerleaders Die* (2013) ★
Yo yo yo, mothafucka! Am I this out of touch with "the kids"?! I had no idea Lucky McKee was involved. That's a shame. And a high school jock is going to trigonometry class? C'mon Lucky!
Scorecard - Can you hear me now?: 0 / Killer comeback: X / Not Muffy!: X (resurrected) / The old flambé: 0 / A guy named Josh: 0

4. Ghost Adventures Moon River Brewery* S2/Ep06 (2009) ★★★(+)
Ghost Adventures Ancient Ram Inn* S2/Ep07 (2009) ★★★★

Oct 4
5. Ghost Adventures Ohio Reformatory* S2/Ep10 (2009) ★★★★★
Ghost Adventures Linda Vista Hospital* S2/Ep11 (2009) ★★★★

Oct 5
6. Ghost Adventures Clovis Wolfe Manor* S2/Ep12 (2010) ★★★★★
Ghost Adventures Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum: Live Cut Down* S2 bonus (2009) ★★★(+)

Oct 6
7. Ghost Adventures Pennhurst State School and Hospital* S2/Ep08 (2009) ★★★★
Ghost Adventures Poveglia Island* S2/Ep09 (2009) ★★★★

Oct 7
8. Willow Creek* (2014) ★★★★
A Bobcat Goldthwait found footage movie about searching for Bigfoot? Color me intrigued. I'm a sucker for FF movies, even though everyone else is sick of them. And Willow Creek didn't get very good ratings. I thought the two main actors had good chemistry, and there was a very effective 19-minute single-shot scene in the tent in the middle of the film. Gets a bonus star for startling me during this intense scene. I definitely got some Blair Witch deja vu, but overall this was pretty good.
Scorecard - Can you hear me now?: X / Killer comeback: 0 / Not Muffy!: X (discussed) / The old flambé: 0 / A guy named Josh: 0

9. Willow Creek Audio Commentary* (2014) ★★★★
With writer/director Bobcat Goldthwait, and actors Bryce Johnson and Alexie Gilmore. Entertaining commentary with no lulls. I was surprised to find that most of this movie was improvised.

Oct 10
10. Donkey Punch* (2008) ★★
Three young British ladies hook up with three chaps or blokes or whatever they are. They break out the crack pipe, and things go awry. One guy's kind of a mutant. Of course he's the badass. Gotta have a defense mechanism, I guess. Plenty of franks and beans. Not enough of the other stuff. There's no backstory to the girls, there's little (if it's true) backstory to the guys. I don't know who the fuck they is (as they would say).
Scorecard - Can you hear me now?: X / Killer comeback: 0 / Not Muffy!: 0 / The old flambé: X / A guy named Josh: X

11. Oculus* (2014) ★★★★
Boy, Angie Everhart has really worked on her acting chops. Wait, that wasn't her at all. I did not expect this movie to be humorous.
Scorecard - Can you hear me now?: X / Killer comeback: X / Not Muffy!: X (speculation) / The old flambé: 0 / A guy named Josh: 0




Oct 12
12. Japanese Hell* (1999) ★★
This movie gets an extra star strictly because it warranted a discussion between my girlfriend and I. I was promised hideous gore and crazy rubber latex creatures. I got the long, agonizing story of a cult leader, a morality tale, a courtroom drama(?!), with some gore thrown in. Holy crap. The story is actually about a girl named Rika, who is in the cult, and needs to be shown "Japanese Hell" to change her ways. She's fairly innocent, even questioning why she is there. The cult story takes you so far away from Rika, you don't know if you're ever getting back. They even throw in a badaass samurai at the end to fight the denizens of Japanese Hell for, well, I have no idea why.
Scorecard - Can you hear me now?: 0 / Killer comeback: 0 / Not Muffy!: 0 / The old flambé: 0 / A chick named Rika: X

12.5. Ghost Adventures Sharon Tate Ghost* S9/Ep01 (2014) ★★★★

Oct 14
13.5. Cursed* (2004) ★
Nao works at the Mitsuya Mart. They're being bought up by a big chain. And a bunch of shit happens. I suppose everyone (except for upper management... ?!) who comes into contact with the store is "CURSED". I do like seeing good movies on occasion.
Scorecard - Can you hear me now?: X / Killer comeback: 0 / Not Muffy!: X / The old flambé: 0 / A chick named Rika: 0

14. Ghost Adventures Queen Mary* S10/Ep01 (2014) ★★★★

Oct 16
15. The Bunny Game* (2010) ★★★(-)
"Bunny" (or so is her character in the credits) the prostitute is having a rough week. She's picked up by a trucker who happens to have a torture chamber in the back of his truck. I liked that the story was primarily told through a series of vignettes. Some cool camera work and editing. But ultimately, not a lot happens. The actresses are certainly put through the wringer. The branding scenes were a bit of a shock. I was surprised the prostitute (Rodleen Getsic) masochistically co-wrote.
Scorecard - Can you hear me now?: Sort of, on a CB, although the guy came, so I guess he heard him / Killer comeback: 0 / Not Muffy!: 0 / The old flambé: 0 / A guy named Josh: 0




Oct 19
16. Monster Brawl* (2011) ★★★(+)
A bunch of creatures battle it out to the death in an old cursed graveyard. The officiator dies in about the first 2 minutes, so, anything goes! The writer/director was obviously a fan of wrestling. Buzz Chambers (Dave Foley) and Sasquatch Sid (Art Hindle) host, and are visited, hilariously, by the gravekeeper, to warn them of their fate. My favorite cameo was Lance Henriksen as the voice of God. Majestic! Appalling! Discombobulating! Very Mortal Kombat-esque. More bad reviews on this one. I thought it was a lot of fun. Certainly not to be taken seriously.
Scorecard - Can you hear me now?: 0 / Killer comeback: X / Not Muffy!: 0 / The old flambé: 0 / A guy named Josh: 0


Oct 20
17. Needle* (2010) ★★
Ben, a college student, inherits a strange device from his father. Someone steals it, and his friends begin to get killed off, voodoo doll-style. Ben's douchebag brother Marcus, who is a crime scene photographer, mysteriously shows up after being out of his life for 2 years. It is incredible how everyone's door is left open. Is this the way things are in Australia? This is another "whodunnit" that I could give a shit about, like the Scream movies. In the end, they withhold information until the killer is exposed, for the convenience of the plot. I feel cheated.
Scorecard - Can you hear me now?: X / Killer comeback: 0 / Not Muffy!: 0 / The old flambé: 0 / A guy named Josh: X (Mr. Joshua. Is that cheating?)


Oct 22
18. I Spit on Your Grave 2* (2013) ★★★(-)
Those darn Bulgarians. Katie is a waitress who wants to be a photographer. She answers an ad looking for a model, and meets up with some shady foreigners. For the third time, they have succeeded in making an extremely unpleasant rape. They've also made the culprits even more despicable. I guess that makes for a good revenge? Katie escapes, and is rescued by... oh wait. It's that nasty family again. C'mon Katie. Surely you could have seen such an obvious twist coming. This movie succeeds in being horrific. I can give it that much. I just don't know if I'm outgrowing horror movies or what. Oh well. Back to Gilmore Girls. Rory was hit by a deer and is late for her test!
Scorecard - Tropeless - Can you hear me now?: 0 / Killer comeback: 0 / Not Muffy!: 0 / The old flambé: 0 / A guy named Josh: 0


Oct 23
19. A Serbian Film* (2010) ★★★(+)
Wow. I didn't know what exactly to expect out of Serbia. This movie, anyhow, has high production values. Milos is a former porn star who has started a family. Vukimr makes him an offer that he can't refuse with a new film. Problem is, Milos isn't in on what it's about. It gets weird. Let's say Milos' world is turned upside-down into a drug-induced nightmare. Pretty much off the charts in terms of offensiveness. Did I just witness newborn baby fucking?
Cinnamon's gone!
Scorecard - Tropeless - Can you hear me now?: 0 / Killer comeback: 0 / Not Muffy!: 0 / The old flambé: 0 / A guy named Josh: 0


Oct 25
20. The Possession of Michael King* (2014) ★★
Michael researches the occult. Michael gets possessed. Michael goes mad. Relies far too heavily on jump scares.

22.25. Neighbor* (2009) ★★★(+)
I tried to hate it, honestly! Three unlikeable tools get tormented by a hot psycho. I definitely didn't not not like this, but I feel that if it were told in a more straightforward manner (see how I did that?), it would've been more effective. There are flashbacks and dream sequences that ultimately confuse things. But I was really charmed by America Olivo's unhinged performance and antics, as well as the great gore fx.

23.25. Dagon* (2001) ★★★★
Four vacationers encounter a creepy village of fish-people off the coast of Spain. A pasty nerd gets all the chicks, including female sea creatures. It probably would've helped if I knew more than a few words of Spanish, as half the movie is in it.

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

Mallratcal's 6th October Horror Movie Challenge!

List is Final!

Oct 1st
1. Leprechaun ** / DVD / 92 min / 1993
First time watching it since it came out on VHS. This was pretty boring, likely because it didn't have the wackiness that some of the other movies had.

2. ATM * / New / VOD / 90 min / 2012
Not as sexy as the name implies. This was super boring, but it was about people trapped in an ATM, so... at least it was free.

3. Crawlspace ***1/2 / New / Blu-Ray / 80 min / 1986
This was really good. I hope Scream keeps putting out forgotten gems like this.

4. Cellar Dweller *** / New / DVD / 80 min / 1988
This was good, and just when you think it's going to be a happy ending everything ends so much worse for the characters.

Oct 2nd
5. The Nail Gun Massacre **1/2 / New / Blu-Ray / 85 min / 1985
This was a good bad film. If it were competently made/acted I don't think it would have been as enjoyable.

6. Galaxy of Terror **1/2 / New / Blu-Ray / 81 min / 1981
Pretty cool flick with some nice gore effects. Weird ending though.

7. The Stuff ** / New / DVD / 87 min / 1985
Meh. I had higher hopes, and this wasn't great.

Oct 3rd
8. Maximum Overdrive ** / DVD / 97 min / 1986
Not really exciting. Mediocre movie.

9. The Godsend **1/2 / DVD / New / 93 min / 1980
This was pretty good. I feel like I've seen this movie before, but maybe I just saw some scenes from a documentary or something.

Oct 4th
10. Trick or Treat **1/2 / DVD / New / 98 min / 1986
Sort of dull, but had some pretty crazy stuff towards the end. I thought the movie would end at the high school dance, but it went on for another 20 minutes, which felt odd.

11. The Monster Squad **** / DVD / 82 min / 1987
Great movie. Mummy came in my house.

12. Ghoulies ** / DVD / New / 81 min / 1984
I'm pretty sure I've never been able to sit all the way through this before. Or I was bored and just forgot about it. Not terrible, but not great either.

13. Zombie Self-Defense Force *** / DVD / New / 75 min / 2006
The good kind of ridiculous.

Oct 5th
14. Ghoulies II *1/2 / DVD / New / 90 min / 1988
The first half was definitely the best, the 2nd half moved more into comedy and it just didn't work. Same with the first one I've seen bits and pieces of it before, but this was the first time that I've watched it all the way through. Only thing of note in this was possibly the worst security guard in horror movie history.

15 Ghoulies III: Ghoulies Go to College 1/2* / DVD / New / 94 min / 1991
Another Ghoulies movie where I have seen bits and pieces of. I would say this is where the series went off of the rails, but it really wasn't a good series to begin with it.

16. Maniac *** / New / Blu-Ray / 88 min / 1980
This was good. I liked the changed perspective. It also had a great exploding head gag.

17. Ghoulies IV ** / New / DVD / 84 min / 1984
There were no ghoulies in this one (except in flashbacks). This was bad but entertaining.

Oct 6th
18. Witchboard **1/2 / Blu-Ray / 98 min / 1986
A little better than I had remembered.

19. Witchboard 2 **1/2 / Blu-Ray / 98 min / 1993
I haven't seen this since the days of VHS. Not as good as the original, but it was close. It also had some nice camera work.

20. Witchboard III: The Possession ** / DVD / 93 min / 1995
Kind of on the slow side, but there were some laughs to be had. I did like the way the movie looked, it was very warm.

Oct 7th
21. Brides of Blood ** / New / DVD / 97 min / 1968
A wonderfully crappy monster costume in this one.

22. The Town That Dreaded Sundown **1/2 / Blu-Ray / 86 min / 1976
I really hated the "humor" in this one.

23. Dead & Buried **** / New / DVD / 94 min / 1981
This was really good. I don't know why I put off watching it for so long.

24. Trick or Treats **1/2 / New / DVD / 91 min / 1982
This was dumb, but I liked it. I just wanted Meatloaf to kill that annoying little kid.

Oct 8th
25. Dead & Breakfast **1/2 / New / DVD / 88 min / 2004
I enjoyed it but I don't think I was in the mood for the wackiness.

26. Cry_Wolf *** / DVD / 90 min / 2005
Enjoyable. I really like the way the movie looks with all of the fall colors.

Oct 9th
27. Maniac (2012) *1/2 / New / Blu-Ray / 89 min / 2012
Lacked the the impact and the subtly of the original and ultimately was not as good.

28. The Mist **** / New / Blu-Ray / 126 min / 2007
A rare good Stephen King movie. I've been meaning to watch this for the past few challenges. I'm happy I finally got to it, and surprised at how dark the ending was.

29. Piranha *1/2 / New / Blu-Ray / 88 min / 2010
Some of the gore was pretty good, but the film took itself too seriously. The comedy bits worked and I think if they had played those up the movie would have been much better.

Oct 10th
30. The Incredible Melting Man *1/2 / New / Blu-Ray / 84 min / 1977
Pretty bad film making. The highlight was the FX work.

31 Hands of the Ripper *** / New / Blu-Ray / 85 min / 1971
Always good to see more Hammer on Blu.

Oct 11th
32. Evilspeak ** / New / Blu-Ray / 92 min / 1981
Took awhile to get going. I never thught I would see Clint Howard's butt.

33. Critters **1/2 / DVD / 86 min / 1986
Blowing up the house at the end was a total dick move by the critters.

Oct 12th
34. Critters 2 **1/2 / DVD / 86 min / 1988
Just as good as the first.

35. Black Sheep **1/2 / New / Blu-Ray / 87 min / 2006
Funny with good gore effects.

36. The Outing *** / New / DVD / 87 min / 1987
This is a perfect example of a good bad movie. Maybe one day it will get a better transfer.

Oct 13th
37. The Initiation *1/2 / New / DVD / 97 min / 1984
Didn't make a lot of sense. The rape talk was a pretty heavy thing to drop. What's with Daphne Zuniga and slasher movies with ridiculous endings?

38. The Redeemer: Son of Satan! * / New / Blu-Ray / 84 min / 1978
This was a real mess filled with characters you didn't care about.

Oct 14th
39. The Hitcher *** / New / DVD / 84 min / 2007
I was surprised at how much I liked this. The end was a bit goofy though.

40. Witchcraft 1/2* / New / DVD / 85 min / 1988
I had wanted to watch an entry in this series for a long time (I thought there were a lot of boobs) but this was horrible, plus no boobs!

41. Video Nasties: Moral Panic, Censorship & Videotape **** / New / DVD / 72 min / 2010
Crazy how people actually believed some of the movies were real.

Oct 15th
42. The Midnight Meat Train * / New / Blu-Ray / 100 min / 2008
This was dull. And I didn't know what was going on so I didn't care abut the characters. Although there was a Ted Raimi sighting.

43. Sleepaway Camp ***1/2 / Blu-Ray / 88 min / 1983
One of the best endings in horror history.

Oct 16th
44. You're Next ***1/2 / New / Blu-Ray / 95min / 2011
This was really good. Based on the trailers I thought it was just your standard slasher film.

Oct 17th
45. Carnosaur 2 *1/2 / DVD / 83 min / 1995
Those were some goofy looking dinosaurs.

46. City of the Living Dead *** / New / DVD / 93 min / 1980
Teleporting and guts barfing are pretty good zombie powers.

47. Halloween ***** / Blu-Ray / 91 min / 1978
Watched this with the Red Letter Media commentary.

48. Feeders 1/2* / DVD / 69 min / 1996
So bad but so good.

Oct 18th
49. Deadly Blessing *** / New / Blu-Ray / 100 min / 1981
I had never even heard of this movie until Scream put out the Blu-ray.

50. Hanger * / New / DVD / 90 min / 2009
This seemed to be gross just to be gross.

Oct 19th
51. Re-Animator ***1/2 / DVD / 86 min / 1985
A good, funny horror movie.

52. Evil Dead II ****1/2 / Blu-Ray / 84 min / 1987
This movie is pure madness and it's great!

Oct 20th
53. Skull Forest * / New / DVD / 74 min / 2012
Got pretty entertaining once the killing started.

54. Feeders 2: Slay Bells 1/2* / DVD / 72 min / 1998
I know they used the flashbacks to pad out the running time, but it really slowed the movie down. And this movie needed more drunk Santa!

Oct 21st
55. Humongous **1/2 / New / DVD / 94 min / 1982
It's usually good to keep the monster in shadow, but they overdid it a bit too much.

56. Death Valley *** / New / Blu-Ray / 87 min / 1982
Another movie I thought was going to a be a run of the mill slasher but was pleasantly surprised by.

Oct 22nd
57. Killer Tongue 1/2* / New / DVD / 93 min / 1996
Tried way to hard to be funny. So far it is the worst movie of the challenge.

58. Doc of the Dead **1/2 / New / VOD / 81 min / 2014
Needed more RLM.

59. WNUF Halloween Special ***1/2 / New / VOD / 83 min / 2013
This is full of nostalgia. And they way they degraded the video looked great.

Oct 23rd
60. The Horror Show ** / New / Blu-Ray / 95 min / 1989
I know this is House 3, but I think the movie would have been better without the supernatural.

61. Feeding Frenzy ***** / DVD / 89 min / 2010
My favorite movie from last years challenge.

Oct 24th
62. The Others **1/2 / New / Blu-Ray / 104 min / 2001
I think I would have liked it more if I didn't know the twist before watching it.

63. Graduation Day **1/2 / New / Blu-Ray / 96 min / 1981
The characters were all paper thin, but Vanna White did pee herself.

64. Paranormal Activity 2 ** / New / Blu-Ray / 91 min / 2010
Loud Sounds: The Movie

Oct 25th
65. Dark Wolf *1/2 / New / DVD / 94 min / 2003
Laughable best describes this one. It did have lots of nudity though.

66. MST3K: The Mole People ****1/2 / New / DVD / 92 min / 1997
Really good installment with lots of good lines.

67. Night of the Living Dead (1968) **** / New / DVD / 96 min / 1968
This was the Rifftrax version, so I'm marking it as new.

Oct 26th
68. Creature from the Black Lagoon *** / New / Blu-Ray / 79 min / 1954
Not the best of the Universal monster movies.

69. It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown ***** / Wildcard / DVD / 25 min / 1966
I find the snoopy parts to be boring.

Oct 27th
70. Freddy vs. Jason ***1/2 / DVD / 97 min / 2003
It's got some problems but It's an entertaining movie.

71. Leviathan *** / New / Blu-Ray / 98 min / 1989
This was good, it could have done without the action movie ending.

72. The Burning Moon * / New / DVD / 98 min / 1997
This was actually pretty tame. I was surprised it was made in '97. It looked like East Germany before the reunification. The main character had some pretty big hooters for a guy.

73. Criminally Insane *1/2 / New / DVD / 61 min / 1975
Everyone was an asshole while using the doorbell.

Oct 28th
74. Video Violence * / New / DVD / 98 min / 1987
This was mostly boring.

75. The Rocky Horror Picture Show ***** / Blu-Ray / 100 min / 1975
I love it.

76. Hey, Stop Stabbing Me! *** / DVD / 90 min / 2003
It did go on a little long and the sock stealing monster plot could have been dropped, but it was a really good amateur movie.

Oct 29th
77. Night of the Comet ***1/2/ / New / Blu-Ray / 95 min / 1984
This was excellent. I shouldn't have waited so long to see it.

78. The Blair Witch Project ***1/2 / DVD / 81 min / 1999
The performances were really good.

Oct 30th
79. Night Train to Terror *1/2 / New / Blu-Ray / 93 min / 1985
The effects were amazingly bad, but the editing was super sloppy. The 2nd story was the strongest.

80. Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight **1/2 / DVD / 92 min / 1995
Billy Zane steals the show.

81. The Slumber Party Massacre **1/2 / Blu-Ray / 76 min / 1982
A pretty entertaining slasher that really wanted to be Halloween. The killer reminded me of Fred Armisen.

82. Ninja III: The Domination **1/2 / New / Blu-Ray / 92 min / 1984
Pretty crazy movie. It also had the creepiest/hairiest cop.

Oct 31st
83. StageFright: Aquarius **1/2 / New / DVD / 90 min / 1987
Interesting premise and it looked good, but it was an average slasher.

84. Body Bags *** / New / Blu-Ray / 95 min / 1993
I've been meaning to see this movie for a long time. Very reminiscent of Tales From the Crypt. John Carpenter even looked like the Crypt Keeper.

85. Terror Train ** / New / DVD / 97 min / 1980
Another one I've been waiting to see for a long time. This one was pretty dull however.

86. Gravity Falls: Summerween ***** / Wildcard / VOD / 22 min / 2013
This has replaced Zim as the Halloween cartoon. I need more of 'The Fear Guy From Terror Town Street'.

87. Halloween III: Season of the Witch ***1/2 / Blu-Ray / 98 min / 1982
Gets a bad rap for not having Michael Myers in it, but this is a really cool flick.

88. BOTW: Halloween Spooktacular ***** / New / Wildcard / VOD / 57 mins / 2014
I hope there is a new one every year.

89. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers **1/2 / DVD / 88 min / 1988
Mediocre, but the end was good.

★★


Week 1


- October 1 -

1. Halloween (1978) ★★★★★
Having just bought the new blu-ray collection of this series, I knew I had to start the challenge with a viewing of Halloween! This is a movie that gets better every time I see it, and it just captures the season so perfectly.

2. Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006) ★★★½
This is definitely enjoyable, and I love how it plays with the slasher genre. But, I do find that the more I see it, the less impressed by it I am.


- October 2 -

3. Cat People (1942) ★★★★★ ☼
This was really great! The film took a generic premise and turned it into a unique allegory for a troubled marriage. Tourneur's use of shadows makes the film look more like a noir than horror, and that plays to a more chilling effect. Definitely worth checking out!

4. The Addams Family (1991) ★★★½
I loved this movie as a kid, and still find it to be a great time. It fits the Halloween season perfectly, and still makes me laugh. The end of the movie drags a bit, but overall, it's something I'll revisit again.

5. Prom Night (1980) ★★ ☼
I wasn't the biggest fan of this one. The story itself was silly (which, it can be argued, is expected) and the ending predictable. But, the scene with the van is brilliant! Overall, though, I found it to be pretty weak.


- October 3 -

6. Curse of the Cat People (1944) ★★ ☼
It's so strange that this is the sequel to Cat People. It really doesn't have anything to do with, or resemble, the original in any way beyond the cast/characters. This wouldn't have really been a problem if the film weren't so uninteresting.

7. Re-Animator (1985) ★★★★★
Definitely one of the most inventive horror films ever. It executes everything perfectly, and is never predictable. This is definitely something that will make a rotation every year.


- October 4 -

8. Insidious (2010) ★★★★★
One of the scariest and most original horror films in recent memory. This takes many horror cliches and turns them onto their heads without being tongue-in-cheek.

9. Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) ★½ ☼
This sequel, on the other hand, loses all of the originality to instead create a hodgepodge of a film that loses its scares. I have to admit, however, that the film does have some moments with incredibly creepy visuals, but overall, it's a mess that I hope to put out of my head so it doesn't ruin the first one.

10. Dracula (1931) ★★★★★
My favorite of the Universal Monster movies. Sure, Bride of Frankenstein may technically be a "better" movie, but there's something about Lugosi and the production design in this that makes it quintessential. This is something I can keep watching and never grow tired of.


- October 5 -

11. The Fly (1958) ★★★½ ☼
This felt like it suffered from some structural problems within the story. It started out so strong and then started to feel less and less interesting. That being said, the end of the film was terrifying.

12. Corpse Bride (2005) ★★
This really doesn't have any of the magic that made Nightmare Before Christmas so great, but it constantly feels like they were really trying. Throughout, it just feels like something was missing. However, the film does look great.


- October 6 -

13. Horns (2013) ★★½ ☼
I had really high hopes for this one, but it just felt like it was all over the place and unfocused. I can't say it was bad, however, as I was never really bored, but it didn't really present anything new and felt kind of generic. Daniel Radcliffe did a great job, though.


- October 7 -

14. The Dead Zone (1983) ★★★½ ☼
This was much different than I expected, and very different from Cronenberg's films at the time. However, this presented a story that I felt I had heard many times (someone who can see into the future) in a way that I had never seen. Definitely very interesting.


Week 2


- October 8 -

15. The Raven (1963) ★★★½ ☼
An incredibly fun movie! Going off of Corman's previous works adapting Poe, I wasn't expecting a comedy, but I still enjoyed this. It was great to see Price and Karloff battle!

16. Halloween II (1981) ★★★
I enjoyed this more than I remembered, but it still just feels like one of the movies the original Halloween inspired.


- October 9 -

17. Phenomena (1985) ★★★½ ☼
This got off to a slow start, but the last third of this movie is pretty awesome. However, the use of the heavy metal songs really took away from the creepiness of the film. Overall, though, I really enjoyed it.


- October 10 -

18. Psycho (1960) ★★★★★
No matter how many times I've seen this, I am always completely enthralled. The story is truly incredible, and the performance by Anthony Perkins is unlike anything. After all these years, the film is still as tense as ever. Truly a classic.

19. Leprechaun (1993) ★★ ☼
I expected this to be silly. And it was silly. It had moments of being fun, but overall just felt uninspired.


- October 11 -

20. The Vampire Lovers (1970) ★★★½ ☼
I'm still pretty new to the world of Hammer Horror, but I'd definitely count myself as a fan! In some twisted way, they remind me of the old school Universal monster movies. The sets, the stories... but with more blood and sex. This isn't amongst my favorites, but it was definitely fun!

21. Scooby-Doo (2002) ★★ ☼
This felt like a jumbled mess. But, and I never thought I'd say this, Scrappy Doo stole the show!

22. Psycho II (1983) ★★★½ ☼
This was a lot better than I expected. I can't say too much without spoiling it, but it was a very interesting take on the aftermath of Psycho.

23. Vampire in Brooklyn (1995) ★★★★ ☼
I figured that if I hadn't heard of a vampire movie starring Eddie Murphy before, then it probably meant I wasn't missing anything. But Wes Craven did a really good job taking the vampire myth and breathing some fresh air into it.


- October 12 -

24. Night of the Creeps (1986) ★★★★
Another one that was even better than I remembered on a second viewing. This is a really fun and clever movie that keeps me engaged throughout. Tom Atkins, as always, is awesome!

25. Dead Heat (1988) ★★★ ☼
This felt like another generic 80's cop movie, but with zombies. That being said, I love generic 80's cop movies, so this fit right up my alley. I'm actually surprised I didn't like this more, given the premise. There were some really cool moments, but overall felt a bit flat.

26. Child's Play (1988) ★★★★
Another movie that I enjoy the more I see it. I've kind of forgotten how dark this movie is compared to the increasingly silly, yet still enjoyable sequels. Before I had seen it, I always thought the idea of a killer doll was silly. Chucky proved me wrong.

- October 13 -

None


- October 14 -

27. The Pit and the Pendulum (1961) ★★★★
I love the atmosphere of Corman's Poe adaptations. This definitely gets even better with each viewing. I had forgotten how terrifying the ending to this was!

28. The Hitcher (1988) ★★★ ☼
This one started great, but as it went on, it just felt sillier and sillier. That being said, it was still an engaging and exciting film. But, it begins taking itself pretty seriously, and then moves into a different tone which didn't quite seem to fit. Probably going to check this out again in the future!


Week 3

- October 15 -

29.The Tattooed Swordsman (The Blind Woman's Curse) (Kaidan nobori ryû) (1970) ★★★½ ☼
I can't say I completely understood everything that happened in this movie, but I had a great time with it. A crazy mix of action and horror, it was definitely unique and presented a cool story with a unusual flair.

30. The Fly (1986) ★★★★★
Quite possibly the greatest body-horror film ever made. Everything in this movie works incredibly well. The movie retains the classic monster movie sense and updates it to glorious effect. Having seen the original earlier in the challenge, it's incredible how they took that story and made it their own. One of the rare remakes that is better than the original.


- October 16 -

None


- October 17 -

31. Evil Dead II (1987) ★★★★★
One of the craziest horror movies ever made. There have been many imitators, but nothing comes close. The level of excitement this holds throughout the film is incredible and infectious. It's always an absolute blast.

32. Army of Darkness (1992) ★★★★★
Probably the best follow-up that could have been made to Evil Dead 2. The film takes the series into a new direction while still definitely feeling like it belongs to the series. I watched the Theatrical Cut, which I prefer, but with the Director's Cut's ending, which I feel is the ending that aligns with the series best. I just wish there would be a part 4.


- October 18 -

33. Drag Me to Hell (2009) ★★★★
Raimi's still got it! This was a pretty insane horror film that didn't feel burdened by it's rating. It takes many clever twists and turns and doesn't ever feel watered down. Definitely a fun film to revisit alongside the Evil Dead series.

34. Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (2010) ★★★½
A really enjoyable take on the menacing hillbillies in many horror films, showing that they are just misunderstood. While it is a silly film, it is pretty clever and makes the most of it's premise.


- October 19 -

35. Oculus (2013) ★★ ☼
This did a great job with the set-up, but it just lost steam as it went along. There were some great visuals in this, but overall I wasn't able to get into it.

36. The Tall Man (2012) ★★★½ ☼
Pascal Laugier has a great way of telling a story while keeping you guessing. This started kind of weak, but became almost pretty amazing, before faltering at the end. It was an ambitious move, one I have to respect, but I can't help but feel something even better could have been made from this.


- October 20 -

37. Wer (2013) ★ ☼
I found this to just be silly. It took a really great concept and setting, and just made a mess of everything.


- October 21 -

None


Week 4

None


- October 24 -

38. Creepshow (1982) ★★★★ ☼
This was really fun. I enjoyed all of the stories and found them to be pretty clever, except for the last one. The movie was going at such a great pace until the last segment.

39. Village of the Damned (1960) ★★★★ ☼
The movie starts with an incredibly creepy premise, but I felt it just did not hold up quite as strongly as it went on. However, the theme of what to do when children pose a threat was definitely effective, though I felt even more effective in Who Can Kill a Child? This was a very interesting film.

40. Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982) ★★★½
I don't understand the hate this movie gets. Sure, it doesn't have Michael Myers, and doesn't really have any bearing in the Halloween universe, but taken on its own, the movie is a great movie for the season.

41. Tenebre (1982) ★★★★½ ☼
This was the best giallo I've seen in years. Sure, it's a bit rough around the edges and the end may not make a lot of sense, but all together, it just works amazingly.


- October 25 -

42. Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995) ★★★★
Nowhere near as good as Young Frankenstein, but this is definitely not bad at all. It has some awesomely funny moments, and plays with the 1933 Dracula movie in some great ways.

43. Sleepy Hollow (1999) ★★★
I like this movie more than I remembered when I first saw it, but something has always seemed off about this. Everything in the movie looks gorgeous, but somehow, the movie itself has always come off as flat and unenthusiastic. It feels like everyone just went through the motions. But it sure is pretty, and still entertaining.


- October 26 -

44. Hocus Pocus (1993) ★★★
A really fun Halloween movie. It fits the time of the year well, and I found I enjoyed it even more on a second viewing!

45. Dead Alive (Braindead) (1992) ★★★★
One of the most insane and fun zombie movies ever made. This movie really does hold up the title as the "goriest film ever made". However, everything s done so well that you always end up having a blast!

46. The Burning (1981) ★★★★
This is a lot better than I had expected, when I first saw it. It really takes the time to focus on the characters, making it one of the more effective camp slashers.


- October 27 -

47. House on Haunted Hill (1959) ★★★★
Not a perfect film by any means, and sure, nothing really makes sense, but I can't help but be overjoyed whenever I watch this movie. Something about the melodrama set inside the haunted house makes it feel like a quintessential Halloween viewing.


- October 28 -

48. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988) ★★★ ☼
Something about this was a bit off, but it kind of grew on me. It didn't really feel like a "Halloween" movie, strangely, but still worked in a way.


Week 5

- October 29 -

49. Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989) ★★ ☼
This took what could have been a great concept set up by the end of Part 4, and wasted it. While it was still mindless fun, it just doesn't feel like everything clicked.

50. Motel Hell (1980) ★★★ ☼
This was a weird movie. I remember seeing the box for the video tape a long time ago, and always wondering what it could be, but it was completely different from what I expected. Still, it was pretty good.


- October 30 -

51. Nightbreed (1990) ★★½ ☼
Theatrical Version. This felt like it was incredibly chopped up. Nothing much made sense, but I still found myself to be strangely captivated. Definitely looking forward to watching the Director's Cut.

52. Witching and Bitching (Las brujas de Zugarramurdi) (2013) ★★★ ☼
Starts off incredibly strong, but like many of Alex de Iglesia's movies, sort of falters as it goes in. It takes an incredible concept, but doesn't really know where to go with it. Still had fun with it, but just wish it was tighter. Even still, absolutely an enjoyable and crazy ride!


- HALLOWEEN -

53. Trick 'r Treat (2007) ★★★★
One of the best movies to watch during this time, and the perfect way to cap off the season. While it isn't perfect, the movie captures the spirit of Halloween like few others, and is always great to put on during this time of year.

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

Goals: 100 films, checklist, theme nights
*Denotes First Time Watch

Formats:
Blue=Blu-ray
Green=DVD
Red=Streaming
Orange = TV/DVR/On Demand/Theater

September 30 - after dusk
* 1. TUSK 7/10 I wanted to give the movie a higher ranking, but the side story was distracting and the actors in those scenes just didn't do it for me. I loved the interaction with Justin Long and Michael Parks (who I want to see more of now) and I really loved how they played off of each other, but other than that, it kind of dragged at times, especially during the end. Still worth a view for the dynamic of Long and Parks, just could have cleaned up better.

* 2. THE TORTURED 5/10 I love Bill Moseley and decided to give it a watch. It's an interesting story with how, if your kid is murdered, what you would do to the killer. I actually also enjoyed the acting of Erika Christensen and Jesse Metcalfe during most of the movie, but after the trial it did drag on a bit. It did pick up (I think the people from Saw did this or something) so if you like those kinds of films, it's not too bad. However, ending did ruin it for me (and a bunch of other people if you read IMDB) and it did ruin it a bit for me. If you enjoy Bill, it's worth a watch, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it and probably wouldn't watch it again.

* 3. ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE 5.5/10 My main issue isn't with the movie itself, but how it comes on Netflix. The volume is extremely low, even blasting the TV. The movie did start off kind of slow, as most classic films, but did end up picking up. The one thing I enjoyed was that while it is an older film, it didn't come across as that bad, given the technology back then. Of course you can tell they did something to film the short people with the tall puppet master, but it came off as better as some of the newer films. I was hoping for a few more scares and while it did have a few jumps, just wasn't as thrilling or suspenseful as I was hoping it would be. I liked the production and the acting was well done, so I would probably place the blame on the script.

October 1
* 4. STALLED 5/10 There were some good parts to this film and I have to say, by far, my favorite part was when the main character took the pill and had a dance party in the stall. For that, the movie was worth watching. However, after that party, it made me scratch my head as the woman he was talking to kept throwing out these random accusations and no idea how she came about this from the guy stealing money and a phone. Unless I missed something, I just don't know how she came about this information. Not worth the space in my movie shelf, but was worth killing an hour and a half.

* 5. MUTANTS (2008) 2/10 So while the ratings were awful for this on Netflix, the description sounded interesting. Scientist makes regular sugar wildly addictive and people turn to mutants. Sadly the production and acting seemed like something you would watch late at night as a young teenager on some subscription cable network (you know, soft core porn). This was just awful. About 20-30 minutes in I wanted to turn it off as I know my time was wasted. Story was awful, acting was awful, this movie just SUCKED. Why Netflix has this crap streaming, I don't know. But I feel like Netflix should be paying me to sit through this.

October 2
* 6. THE CARRIER 5/10 I didn't hate, but I damn sure didn't love it. There were some funny one liners, some stuff that made you scratch your head, and things that just didn't fit. It was a nice time killer movie, but it didn't really scare me or do much for me. Gregory Fortescue seemed like a low class cool actor (you know, James Dean and to a degree dorky John Cusack). Not something I would watch again, though.

* 7. SLEEPAWAY CAMP 7/10 This was a fun movie and I went in with high expectations from the things I read about this film. It didn't exceed them, but it also didn't really disappoint. It's your typical summer slasher (which shows from the production value) but I was disappointed there wasn't more scares and blood. But I really enjoyed Jonathan Tiersten's acting (really portrayed the average boy) and the eyes of Felissa Rose are to die for. And Karen Fields as well as Katherine Kamhi are nice to look at. While I think I actually heard about the ending before seeing it (now watching it, I do remember hearing about something like this), it wasn't quiet the ending I was expecting. Reminded me of the reveal in Orphan and was expecting the reveal to be someone else. But yeah, the ending, not so much the reveal, but how it ended kind of took me away. Still worth a watch and does seem to have some replay value. Might actually go out and purchase the blu-ray.

October 3
8. A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3 4/10 Wow I forgot how bad these sequels are. Some really bad acting, slow pacing, and this does nothing for Freddy's character. A few cool one liners and deaths, but that's about it. Lots of boring dialogue (Heather may be praised for this series, but there's a reason why she isn't in many films) and Freddy didn't get his justice in the film. Usually sequels give you more villain time on the screen, but not here.

* 9. DOLLS 8/10 I really enjoyed this film. It was short, so it was able to hold my attention. It had characters you could cheer for (like Judy and Ralph) and those you wanted to see die (like Rosemary and David). Though some of the deaths aren't graphic, some are fun to watch. Knowing that Charles Band had his hand in this, does make me wonder if he had a fetish for those types of objects coming to life. I felt this was actually a better movie than Puppetmaster with the same music. There's some creepy scenes and it's a bummer this never got a sequel. I would highly recommend this for anyone who loves films from the 80's.

October 4
* 10. CLUB DREAD 6.5/10 This movie was actually semi-enjoyable. I like Kevin Heffernan's acting and Brittany Daniel is a beautiful woman. And, of course, Bill Paxton stole the show as Coconut Pete. While I wasn't a huge fan at the start (huge pet peeve, if a guy is getting blown, why show he still has everything on, just don't show that area). While it's not something I would watch every year, there was some humor to this like the Pac-Man game and Paxton's singing. Worth a watch if you like the Broken Lizard guys.

October 5
* 11. THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL 7.5/10 I heard good things about this movie and how it made Ti West, so wanted to give it a try. I do like the feel of a 70's and 80's horror film with the way it was filmed, but other than the creepy old man and the sudden kill in the middle, the pacing was kind of slow. Thought there could be a few more creepy moments or something thrown in. Kind of figured, after the kill, who the pizza guy would be, but the last 20 minutes was pretty cool. Really like the satanic part at the end and how it was done. Overall, something I would watch again and tell my friends about.

* 12. COME OUT AND PLAY 4/10 This was a pretty boring film all around. Couldn't keep my attention and just wanted it to end. The last 10 minutes or so did save it as I couldn't stop laughing as the main guy started wrestling with the kids and tossing them all into the water. The thing is, his wife just died, would have been nice to see some emotion as he shot the kids and wrestled with them. Kids also had no emotions. The kicker, the police shot to kill first, say anything else after attitude. Won't be watching this again.

* 13. THE STUFF 4/10 It seemed like a really cool premise, stuff like ice cream turns you into a mindless zombie, but overall, this script lacked direction and was just boring. There were some cool moments with the boy at a store destroying The Stuff and interaction with his family, but as the movie went on, I was hoping this movie would just need. Again, it had a really cool idea, but the overall acting was just awful and there wasn't much direction. Wouldn't watch this again.

* 14. BLACK SABBATH (English version) 5.5/10 So the English version is really different than the Italian. The first part in the movie, the dead woman and the girl who takes the ring, was exciting and fun to watch. Probably the best part of the film, but the next two entries were pretty boring. I miss how they cut off the lesbian tension and the pimp, though the ghost writing was cool. But the last part of the film was a total drag and the longest segment in the film. Overall, I'd stick to the Italian and just read the subtitles.

* 15. BLACK SUNDAY 5/10 I heard really good things about this film, but it seems like the classics just don't do it for me. The opening was pretty amazing, I will give the movie that. Maybe it's because it's the American version that made most of the movie dull? Not too sure. But the opening is worth a view, but other than that, I'll pass on the rest.

* 16. THE BAY 4/10 I did enjoy the woman talking throughout the film and how they used today's technology to capture footage. Outside of that, the movie is pretty dull. It's very basic and seems like something you would see on the news. Nothing really drew my attention and it's not something I would watch again. I expected a little more with this being produced by Jason Blum and Oren Peli, but it comes out as pretty flat.

October 6
17. THE COMEDY OF TERRORS 9/10 I think I saw this one before, but not 100% sure. I loved it, though. Price can do no wrong. Joyce Jameson is a knockout doll. Great comedy and a lot of fun. A must watch for any horror fan that wants a bit of comedy in their film. They truly don't make films like this anymore, which is a shame.

* 18. THE PARANORMAL DIARIES CLOPHILL 2/10 Outside of maybe the last 15 or so minutes, this was a true drag. What was really awful was the sound. I couldn't hear any of the interviews or much about the legend even at full blast. The sound was just terrible and there were no subtitles so I could at least read what was going on. The scare scene at the end just isn't worth the trouble as you probably will end up falling asleep before you get there. Pass!

October 7
* 19. CARRIE (REMAKE) 6/10 I didn't love it, but I also didn't hate it. There were some questionable moments like why Carrie killed the black girl who she just met at Prom and was sweet, she's 17-18 and just got her period, the horrible religion ideas of her mother, but it wasn't awful. Some of the acting was enjoyable. I should rewatch the original and see if there are any differences, but it seems like this sequel isn't something that was needed, that's for sure. Oh, another pet peeve, no cops or anyone went chasing Carrie. In this day and age, a student did that, you bet there would be cops and planes and everything out for her.

* 20. PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE 6.5/10 I don't know if I love this or hated it. It's got a campy feel to it and started off really strange, which I thought it was going to be a Rocky Horror Picture Show type of movie. But as the film went on, I did seem to enjoy it here and there. William Finley seems like a very talented actor, but his character just turned me off throughout the film. His whiny voice, the attention he wanted, it was a turnoff. I thought Paul Williams did a wonderful job as his role. It made sense, knowing the type of person he is, why he acted the way he did. Then, like typical Hollywood, you sell your soul to the Devil to be famous (or in this case, stay young) and it made sense. My biggest complaint, though, is Jessica Harper's character. Now, I really loved her singing, her dancing, but it was the character. She didn't want to sleep to get to the top. She just wanted to sing. She refused to sing and said she isn't that type of person. Then boom, she sleep with Paul Williams after she got her shoot. That didn't make a lot of sense to me and destroyed her character. But overall, if you want a horror musical, this could be one of the bright spots.

October 8
* 21. ANNABELLE 6/10 It was better than I expected. The acting wasn't as bad, but the doll just seemed like a gimmick. It was an object just to be used by a demon to cause mayhem and chaos, which is a bummer as we haven't had a good doll film in quite some time. Add on the fact that there wasn't that based on a true story line (or at least I didn't see it) which was a shame for me as I wanted that feel to the story and wanted some facts about the doll and the history. The movie just seemed to drag along the way and the best part was the beginning during the home invasion. Overall, I'd rather stick to Dead Silence than this film as the doll does get more use and there's better scares.

* 22. THE HOWLING 7.5/10 While the sexual subtext was a bit confusing (don't get me wrong, I love sex and nudity, I just didn't get the whole idea of it in the movie). It was an interesting story and pretty unique for the time. I'm always a fan of Dee Wallace and this proves she's one of the best horror actresses in the genre. One big thing I'd like to give kudos to is the special effects team. Those effects are even better than what we see today. Overall, a really enjoyable film about werewolves.

* 23. DRACULA UNTOLD 6.5/10 The story was interesting, to say the least. It wasn't like the typical Dracula movies one would see, so it was nice to give it a different take. He's still a monster, either way you slice it. And I did enjoy the acting from all sides to the story. The only thing that bugged me was about the last 15 minutes or so. It left me with a bunch of headscratching questions like why did Dracula stay alive while the people he turned died (shouldn't they live with the same curse), how is the man that turned him to be Dracula also still alive, and why did it have to end in present day if they plan on doing a sequel and use other monsters? Thus, the ending killed it for me and the reason for a so-so score.

* 24. A BUCKET OF BLOOD 7.5/10 I must admit, the start of the movie did go by pretty slow, but I found Antony Carbone very entertaining and funny. It is a short and playful movie, so besides the start, the movie does pick up and is a lot of fun to watch. If you enjoy comedy horror films, this is certainly one to watch. You won't find these types of films anymore, that's for sure.

10/02/2014
03. Summer School,, 2006, Lance Hendrickson/Troy McCall/Mike P. Nelson/Steven Rhoden/Ben Trandem, Movie, Stream, US, Color, ☼
Micro budget portmonteau with it's heart in the right places (over there and over there and over there...)
Trailer
04. Mystery Science Theater 3000, "The Giant Gila Monster", 1992,, TV, Dvd, US, Color, ☼
Another Swell episode of MST3K
Youtube link for them that wants a taste: MST3K - The Giant Gila Monster

10/03/2014
05. Paperhouse,, 1988, Gerald Thomas, Movie, Stream, GB, Color, ☼
More of a fantasy with some horrific elements, than an horror. Quite good though.

10/04/2014
06. Frankenstein's Army,, 2013, Richard Raaphorst, Movie, Stream, NL, Color, ☼
I've played a game like this before and I liked it
07. Dead Heat,, 1988, Mark Goldblatt, Movie, Dvd, US, Color,
Flawed and yet, still a hoot; some nice gore too

10/05/2014
08. Scooby Doo on Zombie Island,, 1998, Hiroshi Aoyama/Kazumi Fukushima/Jim Stenstrum, Movie, Dvd, US, Color,
Still one of the best and scariest Scooby Doo movies

Mixed signals

10/06/2014
10. Rome Against Rome,, 1964, Giuseppe Vari, Movie, Stream, IT, Color, ☼
Tame, even by the standards of '64, but the lead wasn't a strongman, which was kind of interesting

10/07/2014
11. Quatermass and the Pit,, 1958,, TV, Dvd, GB, B&W,
Still effective; builds up the dread nicely
Youtube link for them that wants a taste: Quatermass and the Pit

What Night of the Lepus wanted to be

Another great Lam Ching-Ying vampire horror/comedy

10/10/2014
14. Brain Dead,, 2007, Kevin Tenney, Movie, Stream, US, Color, ☼
Barely an original bone in it's body, still eminently watchable
15. Grabbers,, 2012, Jon Wright, Movie, Stream, IE, Color, ☼
Very good creature feature joining the ranks of Island of Terror, Island of the Burning Doomed and the like

10/11/2014
16. Saturday the 14th,, 1981, Howard R. Cohen, Movie, Stream, US, Color,
Amusing, mild mannered kiddie fare

10/12/2014
17. Bloody Parrot,, 1981, Hua Shan, Movie, Dvd, HK, Color,
Gruesome bit of wuxia
Youtube link for them that wants a taste: Bloody Parrot
18. Mystery Science Theater 3000, "The Creeping Terror", 1994,, TV, Dvd, US, Color, ☼
A terrible movie, only watchable by the efforts of Mike and the 'bots

10/13/2014
19. Big Ass Spider,, 2013, Mike Mendez, Movie, Stream, US, Color, ☼
Good fun, but it's low budget seams show a little
20. Man Beast,, 1956, Jerry Warren, Movie, Dvd, US, B&W, ☼
Better than I thought It'd be; some nice location shooting. Does suffer a bit from 'Rock climbing, Joel. Rock climbing'.

10/14/2014
21. Witching & Bitching,, 2013, Álex de la Iglesia, Movie, Stream, SP, Color, ☼
Kind of a R rated The Witches (1990)

10/15/2014
22. Kaw,, 2007, Sheldon Wilson, Movie, Dvd, US, Color, ☼
Alright for what it is
23. The Seventh Curse,, 1986, Lam Nai-Choi, Movie, Dvd, HK, Color,
First and one of the better Wisely movies

10/16/2014
24. Tokyo Ghoul, "Tragedy"/"Incubation"/"Dove"/"Supper", 2014,, TV, Stream, JP, Color, ☼
Only four eps in, but it's good and it makes you wonder who the real monsters are
25. Tokyo Ghoul, "Scars"/"Cloudburst"/"Captivity"/"Circular", 2014,, TV, Stream, JP, Color, ☼
Still going strong

10/17/2014
26. Tokyo Ghoul, "Birdcage"/"Aogiri"/"High Spirits"/"Ghoul", 2014,, TV, Stream, JP, Color, ☼
First season wraps up nicely
27. The Whisperer in Darkness,, 2011, Sean Branney, Movie, Dvd, US, Color, ☼
Another fine Lovecraft adaption from the HPLHS folks (there aren't that many good adaptions even now) - Wildcard

10/18/2014
28. Mystery Science Theater 3000, "The Black Scorpion", 1990,, TV, Dvd, US, Color, ☼
Joel and the bots end season one on a strong note

Did not see where this was going

10/20/2014
30. The Brain Eaters,, 1958, Bruno VeSota, Movie, Stream, US, B&W, ☼
Puppet Masters/Invasion of the Body Snatchers wannabe, still, there's a few nuggets of gold amongst the dross

10/21/2014
31. Human Lanterns,, 1982, Sun Chung, Movie, Theater, HK, Color,
I'd forgotten how nihilistic this was

10/22/2014

Good Friday night horror fodder

10/23/2014

More zombie than ghost
34. The Spirit is Willing,, 1967, William Castle, Movie, Stream, US, Color, ☼
Pretty macabre for a family comedy

10/24/2014
35. Bio-Zombie,, 1998, Wilson Yip, Movie, Dvd, HK, Color,
Zombie comedy that gets bleaker the longer it goes
36. Target Earth,, 1954, Sherman A. Rose, Movie, Stream, US, B&W, ☼
Clunky yet serviceable 50's ephemera

10/25/2014
37. Constantine/Grimm, "Non Est Asylum/Thanks for the Memories", 2014,, TV, OTA, US, Color, ☼
Finally. A solid start of the season for both
38. The Manitou,, 1978, William Girdler, Movie, Dvd, US, Color,
Fun slice of fun ala Tony Curtis

10/26/2014
39. The House of Mystery,, 1934, William Nigh, Movie, Stream, US, B&W, ☼
Hokey
40. The Undying Monster,, 1942, John Brahm, Movie, Stream, US, B&W, ☼
Decent retread of Hounds of Baskervilles
41. Mystery Science Theater 3000, "The Projected Man", 1998,, TV, Dvd, US, Color, ☼
The beginning of the end

10/27/2014
42. Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost,, 1999, Jim Stenstrum, Movie, Dvd, US, Color,
Not quite as dark as Zombie Island, but it still has a decent edge

10/28/2014
43. Madhouse,, 1974, Jim Clark, Movie, Dvd, GB, Color, ☼
Good to see Cushing and Price working together

10/29/2014
44. Closet Space,, 2007, Mel House, Movie, Dvd, US, Color, ☼
A nice surprise

10/30/2014
45. Eko Eko Azarak: R-Page,, 2006, Itô Taichi, Movie, Dvd, JP, Color, ☼
Tonally quite different from the previous movies, more akin to the TV series I guess
46. The Haunted Cop Shop,, 1987, Jeff Lau, Movie, Dvd, HK, Color,
I think this one sits with the better Mr. Vampire movies


10/31/2014
47. The Real Ghostbusters, "When Halloween Was Forever/The Collect Call of Cathulhu/Halloween II 1/2/The Halloween Door", Various,, TV, Dvd, US, Color, ☼
"The Collect Call of Cathulhu" is one of the better Lovecraft Mythos stories I've seen
48. Tower of Terror,, 1997, D.J. MacHale, Movie, Stream, US, Color, ☼
Pretty good for a Disney made for TV movie

11/01/2014
49. The Return of Dracula,, 1958, Paul Landres, Movie, Dvd, US, B&W, ☼
No fangs/no bites but still an effective chiller
50. Elvira: Mistress of the Dark,, 1988, James Signorelli, Movie, Stream, US, Color,
Campy fun
