I'm HOPING the Giants-Pirates game does not end like that and is a quick game (pitchers doing their job) with a Giants win so I can at least get 1 movie in for theme night. Luckily got 3 in tonight, but tomorrow, not so sure.

I hate the fact that i'm behind the 8-ball already. Had to work tonight so I missed the 30th dusk start time. But got home and started things off with Brides of Dracula. A nice Hammer that I have enjoyed over the years. Although I hate the ending. Not the title that I had predicted to watch first, but my tastes change like the wind. So i'm off to a good start. Hoping to average 2 films a day. Some days won't have any, i'm afraid, but other days i'll be able to do more than two. So it should even out as I go along. This is some great stuff!

Although flawed Stalled was a really fun movie.

...now Bad Milo, if I can stay up for it.

I started with Horror of Dracula. For me that's ground zero for horror anyway.

An exchange between a girl and a guy in the gym:

Girl: How many reps can you do?
Guy: 15 to 20... more if I'm showing off
Girl: Well why don't you show off for me
Guy: I never waste effort in the gym.... besides I'm Betamax and you're VHS.

Pure gold.
That makes me want to blind buy the movie right there.

I thought these titles were not listed as horror previously but they are now per imdb. Strange Invaders was a creepy flick on cable and it makes about as much sense now as it did back then.

Both Saturn 3 and The Howling have dropped to all time lows of $15.99 each at Amazon. (Scream Factory releases)

Would Saturn 3 be considered horror? It scared me when I was a kid but I just see genre tags of Sci-Fi and Thriller on it.

I noticed a number of horror movie price drops on Amazon today; hopefully this is the beginning of some good seasonal deals.

Started with THE NESTING from 1981. Was hoping for a lost gem. It is not a lost gem.

I love that October 8th also has a theme option for watching flicks from Full Moon Entertainment. Just noticed that as I was going through it.

Still haven't gotten to my first film, which will be later this evening. I'm going with Stalled since I keep getting stalled myself. I knew these first couple of days would be busy with work, etc. But I have the appropriate hours set aside to get one a day until Saturday. Then I can start getting more entrenched in my favorite month.

Not a lost gem, but I still had fun with it when I saw it.

Got my theme movie out of the way this morning with Blood Diner on YouTube. Typical bad 70s cheese, but had a couple decent quotes in it at least.

Oh it's certainly watchable. It's just not "good".

I have MLB.TV on Roku, so I can watch horror movies first, and if I miss the game just tune into the archived playoff game.

It actually wasn't terrible. Not that I really could say it was good though...

That whole movie was pure gold. And I'd expect nothing less from something written by Mitch Paradise.

For this, my first horror challenge, I decided to start with my first viewing of The Abominable Dr. Phibes. Love the set pieces in this.
