Wife's Thoughts In Blue
[/size]
- Sept 30th -
1.)
Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages (1922) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: I caught the 1968 version narrated by William Burroughs. This version is much akin the the Queen version of Metropolis but unlike that version tends to make the source material less effective. The odd jazzy score does not work especially well with what are otherwise pretty evocative creepy images. I was surprised at how good some of these scenes were, although the nature or black and white film defiantly helped. As a lifetime student of film I found this experience to be fascinating. I might have to even pick up the Criterion disc for some commentaries on this. I wonder what public reaction to this film was at the time...
(3.5 out of 5)
2.)
Dead Season (2012) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: A man with a sledgehammer and a few new acquaintances take a boat to a tropical island to escape the zombie apocalypse. If ever a property screamed to be called Dead Island. This felt a lot like an effort to emulate The Walking Dead, just with worse actors, effects, direction and editing. Despite that it did entertain, but just barely. Also I will give it props for 1 original idea (at least I have not seen it anywhere yet). The zombies in this one evolve at one point. The majority of the movie being Romero type and then turning 28 Days later toward the end. For those with this in your "to watch" pile, have jerky on hand as your movie snack for this one.

3.)
State Of Emergency (2011) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: A good zombie movie.. or was it more like The Crazies? An isolated incident in a rural county turns most of the residents into 28 Days Later zombies. Our story follows a group of survivors hold up in a wearhouse NOTLD style. Maybe it was just that I watched this back to back with Dead Season but I enjoyed it a lot. Zombies were actually menacing here, the acting wasn't stiff and wooden, and there was a surprising amount of actual tension. Good zombie movies seem to be few and far between lately but this was one of them.
(4 out of 5)
4.)
Bad Milo! (2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Shades of Ghoulies, hints of Critters, this is a movie for people who grew up with all those bad little monster flicks from the 80's. Milo might not be as original as Belial but he is just as fun and much less annoying than the Basket Case sequels. Milo is basically a stress monster that lives in the leads ass. And if you are still reading after that last sentence you might be the target audience for this film. They went puppet instead of CG which totally made the movie for me, there is something about actors with a puppet that is so much more visceral than when they act against nothing. Go in expecting a silly horror comedy and you will not be disappointed.

5.)
Commentary For Bad Milo! (2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Fun commentary with the writer, director and male/female leads. One of the first things mentioned in the track was that they were heavily inspired by The Brood, can't believe I missed that connection, it is very obvious. I generally like my creative and acting talent tracks separate as one side always kind of bogs down the other. For instance a directors track could get really technical and meta where an actors track is generally all about people and experiences. This one was a decent mix of both, not an out of the park experience but entertaining with a few laughs.
(3.5 out of 5)
6.)
Alone In The Dark (1982) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: Bit of an all star cast on this one; Jack Palance, Martin Landau and of course Donald Pleasance. The ladder who is of course running an insane asylum until one fateful night when a citywide blackout allows the worst of the worst to escape. Donald Pleasance patients are always escaping. And while I have described what seems to be a fairly run of the mill 80's slasher this movie is very much stuck in the 70's. Love the atmosphere, the accosting of the house and that little glimmer of hope that maybe if you could just convince them... I am surprised I have never heard of this before. Watch it here.
(3.5 out of 5)
7.)
The Sentinel (1977) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: This has been on my "watch list" for years after receiving a favorable mention somewhere or another. Much like Rosemary's Baby this is another too good to be true New York apartment with a dark secret. I really liked this movie, creepy movies set in a bustling metropolis are hard to pull off but oh so satisfying. You couldn't make a movie like this today, apartments.com reviews would spoil everything. Also the amount of surprise star power in this movie is ridiculous!

8.)
Lifeforce (1985) (DVD)
My Thoughts: Ah, Lifeforce, one of my greatest blind buys of all time. I tired to talk to a few other self described horror fans at work about this epic recently only to be shocked that none of them had ever heard of it! And that was reason enough to give it some play here during the challenge. This is a perfect 80's genre flick, it's got an ancient derelict spacecraft, hot naked vampire chicks, a crazy zombie/poltergeist contagion angle and even a melting Patrick Stewart. I was saddened to find out that my DVD is picture boxed and that the collectors edition blu is OOP but I guess the regular blu will just have to suffice. Also this movie really got me thinking about Halley's Comet. I will be 77 when it comes back around, if I am still kickn' I think I would like to go view it from Ayers Rock.
(5 out of 5)
9.)
Night Of The Demon (1980) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: I am usually not a fan of Big Foot movies, they are either to stupid, slow or oddly family friendly. But what if Big Foot flipped out and started killing people Voorhees style? I am talking stabbing girl scouts and ripping guys dicks off. Yeah it's that kind of movie. Not a good movie but defiantly my kind of movie. And props to Mondo Kane for the pick.
(3.5 out of 5)
10.)
The Car (1977) (VHS)
My Thoughts: Devil car film, like legit can't go on hollowed ground and is magically impervious to bullets devil car film. This film really felt like a made for tv film, it was about as tame as you can get when it comes to cars running people over. The whole time I wished I was watching another evil auto film. James Brolin was looking very Burt Reynolds-ish in this though, at oe point my wife walked by and said 'Bandit?' Otherwise there were one or two little redeeming bits of craziness here but otherwise this is just sort of bland.
(3 out of 5)
11.)
Vacancy (2007) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: This has been in my wife's side of "to watch" pile for several years. So I decided to finally liberate it for tonights theme. And low and behold it turned out to be a surprisingly decent killer evasion movie. Kate Beckinsale and Luke Wilson play a troubled couple who's middle of nowhere breakdown lands them in an near abandoned snuff motel. Especially poignant for me and the wife as this is the kind of place we used to stay on road trips when we were younger. I liked it, one of those good 'what would you do' type of situations.
(3.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: It is pretty good and very realistic but I need better ending. They speak little louder, I couldn’t hear most of stuff. And tunnel is good and I thought sheriff mostly come two people together. Why they did not come two? I like better ending.

12.)
Four Skulls Of Nathan Drake (1959) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: Shrunken head exploitation! I have always wanted to have a shrunken head, ever since seeing my first one at the local zoo (I know, weird right?). A family who used to be quite the world trekkers several generations ago are still afflicted by a curse they picked up in South America, they die at 60 and then their heads disappear. Assumably to be shrunken. Rich people have the weirdest problems. I liked how the police were actually a big part of this movie, that doesn't happen a lot in horror faire. There is some surprisingly gruesome scenes for the time, decapitation, the depiction of head shrinking and this super weird henchman, who'd head is made up like a shrunken head but he is full sized....? Fun stuff, for a decade that is fairly boring when it comes to horror.
(3.5 out of 5)
13.)
Horror Of Dracula (1958) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: One of my prizes from last years challenge! This is the first time I have seen the original Hammer Dracula, having only seen several of the sequels thus far. The original is very in line with the book, a man called to Dracula's castle, that little village pub that never wants to talk to anybody, you know the gist. It was actually a bit too close to the source materials for my taste. But I will enjoy introducing my daughter to this character in this film in the future. Also Van Helsing listening to How To Kill A Vampire on a Edison Cylinder Phonograph & a Barbara Crampton look-a-like.
(3 out of 5)
14.)
Dracula Has Risen From The Grave (1968) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: So this Dracula set is missing a few films but it they always go into how he was previously killed so it doesn't really effect the experience that much. This time he had been frozen in ice, and everyone thought that that was the ticket apparently, even after he had obviously come back before. This is almost the sequalish classic Hammer Dracula that I like but it is missing one thing: Peter Cushing. This time Dracula is harassing a preacher who dared to bless and hang a cross on his castle in his absence. Enjoyable but still not one of the better Hammer Draculas.
(3 out of 5)
15.)
Commentary For Crawlspace (1986) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I came into this commentary wanting only one thing: story of Klaus Kinski being crazy. And I was not disappointed. Not only is almost the entire commentary about how Kinski was a terror to work with, the director also makes a dvd supplement about it. He also delves into the fascinating world of Empire Pictures. There is this one anecdote where he talks about how almost all of the movies they made were just random titles sent to a poster maker and distributers would come in and pick the posters they liked and then they would go make up a plot for that poster and make it. One of the most entertaining tracks I have listened to this year.

Deliver Us From Evil (2014) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Last movie of the night, the decision was between 80's cheese or relatively well received recent release. Or do I want to laugh or feel scared? And then I noticed that Olivia Munn was in this movie, and that clinched it. A Brooklyn cop must face his greatest challenge to date, an... Iraqi demon? It was actually a really captivating movie, very Exorcist III and a little bit Se7en. I like getting these authority/protector figures out of their element and into the supernatural, much like The Four Skulls Of Jonathan Drake yesterday. Exorcism do keep getting more and more extreme though, I wonder how much crazier they can get before it us just too over the top. I loved the black guy watching the exorcism though it was hilarious.

Commentary For The Shining Parts 1-3 (1997) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: This is a split track with the director, lead actor, Stephen King and a few others that pop in here and there. Not a big fan of split tracks but I understand the logistics of getting so much talent together for 4+ hours so I will have to give them a pass on that. Of course King is the most interesting to listen to, relating stores as to how he originally wrote The Shining or conversations he had with Stanley Kubrick but he doesn't talk near as much as you would want. Felt like maybe only 1/10th of the time was King. There are a few interesting "exchanges" where one person is talking about how much they like a certain scene and cut to another participant and they hate it for one reason or another. But ultimately this is a commentary track on a not so good property and that does hinder it somewhat. Well worth a listen for King fanatics and the odd group of people who prefer this version.

Fear The Walking Dead S01E06/Talking Dead Fear Special (2015) (TV)*
My Thoughts: First off I am not a fan of AMC's 6 episode first seasons! This series had an interesting flow, I was fairly disappointed at the onset but seemed to like each successive episode more than the previous. The season ended with a bang, heard warfare, military collapse, exodus from the city. I was pleased with this spin off and will continue to follow it in the future, now they just need one more and they can have year round WD. Lets have the next one be a comedy though, eh?

Cannibal Man (1973) (VHS)
My Thoughts: Barely a horror movie as much as a murder slippery slope. I was super disappointed when I first bought this as the title and cover are complete misrepresentations of the subject matter. I am still a little sour about that misspent $20 some 20 years ago. Anyway the story involves a man who accidentally kills someone while protecting his lady friend. And then in an effort to not go to jail he has to keep killing people, like a lot of other people. The problem is, how can one get rid of a body in a very urban area? Not a bad movie but I still can't bring myself to enjoy it over my personal bad blood.

Return To Nuke 'Em High Volume 1 (2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I made sure that I was libatiously enhanced for this film but I still had a hard time enjoying it. And I was able to enjoy Poultrygeist so I am open to being entertained by the new Troma. This is basically a reboot of the franchise which had gotten a bit out of hand with the giant nuclear squirrel and belly button mouth clones. One thing I will say is just like in Poultrygeist they lucked out with their lead actress who was super cute, funny and easily the best actor on screen. That and I really liked all the homages to both the original and Class of Nuke 'Em High sequels. Unfortunately there was just so much outright stupidity in this movie that it really taints the good stuff. I am open to volume 2 and maybe revisiting this in a few years but it has not been a high point for Troma. Also what is up with the non-Troma trailers that proceed the title? Sacrilege!

Class Of Nuke 'Em High (1986) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: I immediately had to pop in the original for counterpoint on this one. Even though overtime I do I always have to watch the nude yoga special feature on the disc (which is not quite as good as it sounds). The original is a classic beyond reproach and it is kind amazing how even 30 years later everything is better in the original. The bad acting in the original is better than most of the good acting in the remake and the effects which you would think would be better now are way better in the original. I hope I can get my daughter into the 80's movie mind set when she is a little older. I actually have a younger employee that told me she loves watching 80's movies with her mom and that made me kind of happy to hear. This has been kind of a scatter brain review but sufficed to say this movie gets replay in my house, quite a feat considering my ever growing amount of content.

Commentary For Return To Nuke 'Em High Volume 1 (2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: There are two commentaries on the disc, one with Lloyd and one with the cast. I went with the cast comedy, it was a very high energy track, everyone was really excited to be there and to talk about the film. I think maybe there might have been too many people there as it would often devolve into everyone trying to talk at once but it was entertaining. There seemed to be a lot less go wrong on set than the normal Troma production, at least based on this track which is unfortunate as that is the best part about listening to a Troma Team Production track. Decent commentary with no lulls but did suffer from a lack of substance.

Ubaldo Terzani Horror Show (2010) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I kind of liked the premise of this movie; horror fan and aspiring director stays over at the house of a famous horror novelist for inspiration on his movie but things aren't always what they seem. Had a little Blade In The Dark angle going there but that is about as close as it gets to a real Galileo. The film came off as overly pretencious in their efforts to be meta and while it did have some ultra gore it was ultra cheap ultra gore. It got a bit better at the end but not enough to make much of a difference overall. And the movie ended with the director making the film we just saw and man is that a tired hat. Is tired hat an expression? Too late I am going with it.

Terror Train (1980) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: A rare treat, a new 80's slasher to enjoy and with Jamie Lee to boot! I don't know how I have never seen this movie (might have had something to do with the horrible DVD art) but I am glad I was finally able to catch it. My first thought was, damn I should have gone to med school, I have never went to a party this fucking nice. Satisfying 80's murders on a party train in the middle of no where. Nothing really amazing about this movie but it was super satisfying, comfortable yet new. There is something so almost serine about a besieged Jamie Lee Curtis, just feels right. This is everything you want in an 80's slasher.
(4 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: It is pretty good. But it was slow in the middle and get little bored and I did not expect the girl is the Kenny. Jamie Lee did great job, I know why she is in the Halloween movie now. (I provided erroneous order of release info here). (I) learn valuable lesson, don’t be mean to anyone/don’t humiliate anyone. But I guess its the Doc guy thats the worst one, other people not that bad.

Full Tilt Boogie (1997) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: A wonderful slice of life from the production of From Dusk Till Dawn. There are a few cornball staged segments and the whole thing reeks of a freshman effort but what is captured here is extremely cathartic. You actually feel like you are hanging out with the crew and going to the bars with George and Quentin. Not every behind the scenes documentary makes me consider a change of careers, but this one did.

American Horror Story S04E10-13 (2014-2015) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: As is a tradition of mine I always fall of the American Horror Story horse, only to get back on again when October comes around. The end of Freakshow got a bit crazy and unfortunately not is a good way, more in a lets just kill everyone way. And really after Moi Petite it's hard to feel too bad for anyone who is still sticking around at this point. With the exception of Pepper. Pepper was not my favorite character, in fact she made me kind of uncomfortable but her story deeply moved me. Kind of made me hate being a human. And the connection they made there with Asylum was fantastic. Another thing that I really appreciate, that they started doing with Asylum is not ending the show at the natural drama/horror high. But taking the characters into the future and showing how things continue to progress in their lives. I wish more shows did that. This season was a mixed bag, some amazing episodes, heart wrenching ones, horrible ones, boring ones but overall it is a series that will continue to get my viewership. I hope they get a little more supernatural with Hotel tomorrow night.

30 Days of Night: Dark Days (2010) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I was not a big fan of the first one but it has been so long and the sequel was so heap that I thought I would give it a shot. And I was kind of digging it on the onset, the last remaining survivor doing tours and talking about what really happened and maybe killing some vamps along the way. Then it evolved into a poor mans Blade and got boring in a hurry. Lots of shooting vamps with guns, bad acting & vampires screeching. Really just an all around piece of direct to video trash.

Let The Right One In (2008) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I saw and really liked the remake several years ago but am just now getting around to watching the original. An even essentially knowing all the plot beats I was still wowed by this one. It's so oddly captivating and different enough from the remake to still feel fresh. In fact there were many effects that were way better in the original. The is currently front runner for best movie of the challenge for me. On a side note, did anyone else think that the boy in this one actually looked like Chloe from the remake?

Commentary For Fright Night (1985) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: It was defiantly tempting not to open this one and flip it on eBay, not the $300 they were going for on the first printing but these reprints are still fetching in the $80 range. This was a panel style commentary with a moderator, the director and the two villain actors. It was a great track with a lot of info, the stuff about Roddy McDowell and the directors scorn for the sequel were the most interesting bits. This would have probably been an ordinary track on something else but I love the source material on this one so it would have made even banal enjoyable. And now I think I need to watch the other track with the kid actors.

2nd Commentary For Fright Night (1985) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: And somehow I have had a unintentional mini-vam-thon. This track was pretty disappointing, first off the levels are awful, you have to crank the volume to hear the conversation but then get blasted overtime someone laughs, which is frequently. And what is worse is that there is a lot of re-tred from the last track. Maybe if I hadn't have heard the first track I could have been a little more into it. But from now on I will be sticking to the first commentary track on this item only, in fact I should write myself a little note and put it in the case.

Sisters Of Death (1976) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: A horrible accident during a sorority initiation, casts a dark shadow over a group of young girls. Fast forward 7 years and they are all mysterious invited to a reunion. This film was a little slow and not very original but it had a familiar feel about it that made it watchable. Kind of a Crown International type thing going on. There is murder, revenge, electrified fences and a girl who really looks like Ann Margaret. The film is rated PG, which is strange considering the subject matter, and sort of plays out like a made for tv movie. Not the sort of thing one would rush out and buy but as a part of a multi movie pack it is not a burden to get thru.

As Above, So Below (2014) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Review contains ending spoilers. You know, I kind of liked this movie. It had a touch of Natural Treasure to it and some legitimately interesting urban exploration (actually filmed in the catacombs in paris). Things do go kind of off the rocker during the climax but it was enjoyable. Way better than the other catacombs movie that a lot of us watched a few years back. One of the things I liked about this is that it isn't actually "found footage", some of the people made it out. Everyone dying at the end now being the cliche. So it was nice to have a happyish ending for once on one of these.
(3.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: Beginning was pretty good and very realistic some event. But middle and start ending it is become ridiculous and being a zombie movie almost. I might visit catagome but I go only tours. Choto disappoint movie, I thought more historical stuff.

American Horror Story S05E01 (2015) (TV)*
My Thoughts: Not sure how I felt about this season opener. For each of the other seasons of American Horror Story I was decidedly hooked after episode one. This time it felt more like they were just trying to show cool/creepy stuff in rapid succession. A Se7en style murderer being pursued by a police officer who has watched too much Twin Peaks, a rich eccentric eccentric wannabe vampire, junkie ghosts. The hotel it's self was really great, that is a place I would like to stay (except for the murdering and the rape). A rocky if stylish start.

Married With Children: Take My Wife, Please (1993) (TV)*
My Thoughts: You know, I still got a few laughs out of this show. Not great tv by todays standards but there is something just so likable about the Bundies and their antics. On all hallows eve, death comes to claim Al but strikes a deal with him that if his family says they need him he will be allowed to live. This was a fun little time capsule. And I am defiantly looking forward to some of the other halloween episodes on this disc.

The Killer Eye (1999) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Actual dialog: Q: "What are you looking for? A: "The Killer Eye, it's a big eyeball floating around diddiling everybody." This is basically a Surrender Cinema movie that is light on sex and heavier on the plot. Which of course makes it kind of horrible. You really only watch movie starting Jacqueline Lovell to see her naked, a lot. There is a little bit here but it is nothing compared to actual Surrender Cinema stuff she did. You get way more of her neighbor, an actress who is... maybe not quite built for this type of part. The movie is 72 minutes long (including the credit) and in that 72 minutes every scene seems to drag on for an eternity. If I hadn't of gotten this for free I would be pretty disappointed.

Godzilla (1998) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: I always feel like I have to defend myself for liking certain movies; Waterworld, Battlefield Earth, Godzilla, The Postman. People who can't enjoy these have just frankly not seen enough movies. I am not saying that they are Citizen Kane but there is fun to be had with them. So I saw this one in the theater, I owned the soundtrack, watched it over and over again on HBO, this was a mainstay of my childhood. It is entertaining to see New York destroyed (again), the cast is likable in a cheesy movie way and you get essentially a raptor chase thru Madison Square Garden. It's a spectacle movie and it delivers on that. It's not stomach churning like Cloverfield, super sci-fi like Pacific Rim or near as vapid as the trash the SyFy channel is putting out now a days. I was I liked it. If anyone else was curious what Siscel and Ebert thought of their on screen betrayal you can watch their review here (spoiler: they were not amused). And I am looking forward to seeing the more recent American Godzilla outing once I can find the 3D blu at a good price.

Insidious (2010) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Had to turn the lights on when I went to get a new beer. This was a very effective ghost/haunting movie that maybe showed a little too much detail towards the end but was legit scary. Actually I can't get scared anymore except for the ghost genre for some reason it is the only one that does it for me anymore. There is just something primal about that unknown thing in the dark that a gooey creature or a maniac just can't touch.

Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead (2014) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: They changed a lot of the rules of the zombie apocalypse for this one, and while that might have soured me on it if it were an American production those foul mouth Aussies pulled it off. This dark horror comedy has zombies for fuel, telepathic control of the undead, an evil military and beer in the medkit. An enjoyable indie effort, don't know if I feel the need to add this to my collection but I enjoyed watching it at least once.

The Battery (2012) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I picked this up after hearing a lot of positive buzz about it during last years horror challenge and you guys were right. A highly enjoyable bromance zombie apocalypse film. It really felt like this could be set in the Walking Dead universe, just a few states over. And what I appreciated the most was there was a strong focus on scavenging which is really the think I find most interesting about the zombie apocalypse, hunting for those last few resources. The ending did drag and for a slower film anyway that is saying something so I had to dock the score a little there. Otherwise this has been one of favorite group of survivors. And I would love to see a slightly faster paced revenge based sequel.

Commentary For The Battery (2012) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: An ok if subdued track. Has the two stars of the film and they generally talk about what was cut and how they had managed to make this movie for 6k. I like that they were genre fans and made lots of references throughout. Stuff like "Darkness encroaches like the nothing in Neverending Story".

Horror Express (1972) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: My second train based horror movie this challenge. I am guessing by the horrible a/v quality of this one that it is a public domain film. It's basically The Hidden, made in the 70's with a Hammer cast and set on a train. So, pretty awesome. It has the weird almost spaghetti western soundtrack and Telly Savas hamming it up like there is no tomorrow. The science is kind of awful but this was a surprisingly good B movie.

Rifftrax For Frankenstein Island (1981) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: This is such a ridiculous movie that I don't know if I could have enjoyed it straight. It is a perfect candidate for Rifftax though, long stretches of silence, a meandering disjointed plot, horrible acting/effects. This is perhaps the most I have chuckled all month. And surprisingly topical track too, mentioning thinks like Robot Chicken, David Carradine and Skrillex. I will certainly be adding more Rifftrax to the 'to watch' pile after this treat.

Vampire In Brooklyn (1995) (Internet)
My Thoughts: I feel like this could have been a more enjoyable property if it wan't just Coming to America with a vampire. When this first came out I was stoked. Craven, Murphy, that chick from Critters 4, it's a can't loose picture! Unfortunately the comedy was juvenile, the plot lacked substance and that weird ass accent they had Eddie do just threw everything off (Caribbean Royalty (sounds like a bad cologne)). I'll give them props for not taking the easy PG-13 on this one and despite it's over the top silliness I did like the ghoul and his uncle. It is watchable, but just.

The Walking Dead S06E01 (2015) (TV)*
My Thoughts: Well something had to go terribly wrong, things were just going too well there with the plan. I liked this large scale public works opening. But I do feel like walking the problem 20 miles down the road might not be the best idea, a group of birds and all the sudden they are back. I would have taken a ton of ammo and just put people on top of the trucks and had shooting contests, you could be done by nightfall. Or they might to just have 1000+ rounds to spare. It was a very interesting and unique idea set in the zombie apocalypse. I know one thing for sure, what I am doing on Sunday nights.

The Talking Dead S05E01 (2015) (TV)*
My Thoughts: Such an odd premise for a show when you thing about it. Let's talk about the thing you just watched. It costs nothing and I imagine it has a pretty good retention rate with viewers. It is a live DVD special feature. Ethan Embry again, to me he will always be the guy from FreakyLinks, so it is a little sad seeing him look so old. Decent episode but it is better to not have the creatives on this show seeing as how they have to always be so tight lipped about future plot points.

Nightmare Castle (1965) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: I just couldn't get into this one. I hate to be that guy but I really think I would have liked it more in color. Maybe because I watch way too much HGTV and really just want to oggle their "castle." But some of it also might be that I had a severely cut down Mill Creek version of this. I found myself frequently just staring at Barbara Steele's weird vampiric face and was somewhat surprised at the out of nowhere crazy finale. Meh.

Return Of The Killer Tomatoes! (1988) (DVD)
My Thoughts: I fucking love this movie. I'll take this over Top Secret! or Airplane any day of the week. It is the perfect 80's spoof movie. It builds on the original cult classic, while making fun of it and constantly breaking the 4th wall. You can't really do that anymore without it seeming kind of lame, but it ok in the 80's. I really wish Karen Waldron (the tomato girl) did more movies in the 80's, even so, this one and Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death certainly left their mark on my young mind. I grappled with what rating to give this movie as it is not a traditionally good movie but I gotta go with the way it makes me feel.

Insidious Chapter 2 (2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: The tension, the scares, they were not there this time. Too much repeated tropes from the first and frankly just too much ghost-ery. I never got that feeling where I needed to turn all the lights on when I needed to have a bathroom break. I did like that it was a next day sequel though, those are rare and just in themselves somewhat satisfying. But that may also have been what made this not work for me; they sort of kept the tempo of the final act of the first movie and stretched it out over the entirety of chapter 2. Should you skip this one, no. Completing the story of this family is worth it and there were a couple of hair tingling moments. But I have no intention of checking out the third one.

Don't Look In The Basement (1973) (DVD)
My Thoughts: I young woman gets a job at an alternative therapy home for the insane and arrives just as things start to go horribly wrong. People seem crazier the grainier the film is. And not just that but in older movies people seem to be much more unhinged than they do in more recently set asylum films. And it's always these more free range asylums that have all the problems. This movie is a bit of a one trick pony and once you have seen it it is just not as effective on re-views. It is a Video Nasty and good to see at least once for it's place in horror cinema history, just don't have high expectations.

Don't Open The Door! (1974) (DVD)*

This time about a woman who returns to her old hometown to care for her ailing grandmother. She is then harassed by the curator of a local museum and starts to loose it. I liked this one a bit better than the first, gets a bit more psycho sexual and crazy people are always scarier when they are outside the asylum. The plot does plod a little bit but a better effort by this director. He should have done one more and they could have made money selling the Don't... trilogy for decades.

Nightmare City (1980) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: I bought this title on VHS a long time ago, at the time it was dubbed, cut and under a different title (City Of The Living Dead). As a zombie movie I did not care for it. This time though as a more Contagion type of movie, I liked it a lot more. True this radiation contagion does make their faces look very zombie-ish and the only way to take them down is to shoot them in the head but they don't want to eat you, they just want your blood and to carpool (they seriously frequently carpool places, before jumping out and starting their blood sucking murder sprees). It was a fun movie with lots of violence and hints of the zombie apocalypse. Give it a go as an interesting non-sub genre specific offshoot.

My Thoughts: This was never a can't miss show but for 30 minutes of fluff it was always pleasant to watch. This episode is about the news team not getting an invite to the Jimmy James's halloween party. There was an odd bit of morbidity here when a psychic tells Phil Hartman's character that he would die in the year 2032, he would have had 36 more years instead of just the 2 years before his murder. Dave getting back to his Kids In The Hall roots and into drag (he always was the most passable as a lady). And a furry?

I liked this movie, now I must disclaimer that by saying I don't recommend watching this 100% sober (that would probably leave a bad taste in your mouth). But as an enhanced viewing experience this was dumb fun. I am not going to even go into the plot, you know enough by the cover to get a sense of what is going on. This is a werewolf movie set in the Hobo With A Shotgun universe. Some surprisingly good werewolf effects here, I liked that he just completely sheds the top of his flesh when the wolf comes out ("What is that, a face?" "Hey Lou it kind of looks like you!") Go in with low expectations and something to drink an there is fun to be had here.

Nightmares (1983) (DVD)
My Thoughts: While each segment is a kind of a ripoff of another movie, the familiarity of the plots makes it a more cathartic experience, like hearing a different version of a popular story around the campfire. The escaped mental patient, the huge devil rat, a demonic motor vehicle and of course the gem of this title: the video game cautionary tale. The latter having a young Emilio Estevez as an 80's arcade punk who sneaks in after hours to beat the unbeatable game, only to find the last level more dangerous than he ever imagined. This has always been one of my favorite anthologies, I like how they have a name actor for every story and anything in here could be one of the better episode of say Tales From The Darkside. I am a bit saddened that I didn't see the blu was coming out sooner and cash in on my OOP DVD release.

Friday The 13th: The Series S03E01-03 (1989) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Wow, picture quality seems even worse than previous seasons. We open season three with the less than spectacular 2 part death of Ryan and introduction of another platonic male relative. Ryan should have gone out with a little more of a bang but I guess the actor could see the writing on the wall. The next episode did turn it around a bit when out paranormal team crossed paths with some Demon hunters on the chase of a Rawhead Rex baddie. I never watched the later seasons always being put off by the cast change so this should at least interesting to get a few more episodes of an old favorite.

That 70's show was a big part of my youth, I watched it a lot and there is a fond place in my heart for all of these characters. I am a sucker for Fox sitcoms though (to my own detriment, with the frequency of their cancelations). Above average episode, early series episode. So far that $5 Halloween specials DVD I bought was totes worth it.

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (2014) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Killing it lately with the foreign vampire movies! But I do feel that this is defiantly heavily inspired by Let The Right One In just with a lot more cat. When I first started watching this movie I thought to myself that this is the Iran they should show more often. Then as I watched it there started developing this weird correlation with American things and evil. The vampire loves 80's American music. The good boy had to leave his evil American skateboard so that he could go and be good (which the evil vampire took). It was a fascinating watch and I think the only Iranian movie I have ever seen and while I might not have liked some of the underlying themes it was a really good movie. Not sure how many times I will be accepting of re-tellings of Let The Right One In though...

Curtains (1983) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: This... was not the killer doll movie I was expecting to see. But what a treat to find a new 80's slasher. This one about a Director (out of a Cronenberg movie) who has a casting session for 6 starlets at his house in the middle of nowhere. Some satisfying 80's horror here, it felt a little jumpy and disjointed there at the end but I thought maybe I just looked away at the wrong time or something. But come to find out it wasn't me, the movie was shelved halfway through and then finished 2 years later prior to release. There is a fascinating bonus feature on the Synapse release about this that is easily Never Sleep Again quality.

The Church (1989) (DVD)
My Thoughts: I bought this movie originally under the pretenses that it was essentially Demons 3, so suffice to say I was originally extremely disappointed in this property. Revisiting it now (especially after recently seeing Catacombs (1988)) I found it quite enjoyable. The movie starts back in the crusades where knights cleanse an village entire village afflicted by the devil. And then they start coming back to life from their mass grave it is decided the only way to contain the evil is to build a church on it. Cut to the present day when someone gets a little too Indiana Jones-y and.. well... you know. This picture is the last from Argento's prime (in my opinion) and is essential viewing for the horror fanatic.

Taste The Blood Of Dracula (1970) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Three rich old men, bored with what life has to offer decide to dabble in the occult and re-animate the dark price once again. And I mean really who can blame them? Living in a time before the internet and tv. No Cushing here and Lee is talking way more now than he has in the previous features. It was a decent sequel, nothing that will blow you away but watchable and I do have the craving to watch Dracula 1972 now...

The Walking Dead S06E02 (2015) (TV)*
My Thoughts: The wolves finally attack, Carol in her element, Morgan starts coming around & we won't have to hear anymore about that pasta maker! I would say this was better than the season premiere because people were the enemies, people are always the worst in the zombie wasteland. For a second there I though Carol was going to go full double agent and go with them back to their camp. Best hour of my week.
(4.5 out of 5)
63.)
The Talking Dead S05E02 (2015) (TV)*
My Thoughts: Follow up that bit of awesome with a way better than average Talking Dead and Sunday night was pretty good. Kevin Smith, Vision from Age Of Ultron and Carl's ladyfreind were on the panel tonight. Smith was hysterical, equating tonights show to oral sex that just won't stop. Carol a wolf in Wolves's clothing. The girl paying Carl's love interest was a bit bubbly but what do you really expect from a 16 year old, she has a pretty face though and I hope she continues with the genre when she gets older and after she most likely gets eaten at some point. Great accompanying piece.

Graduation Day (1981) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: This was a derivative, by the number, completely unoriginal 80's slasher. And I loved every minute of it. I am surprised I have never seen this before, if only due to the fact that it has the ever delectable Linnea Quigley in it. A you may have guessed by the title it is set on Graduation Day shortly after a track meet tragedy claims the life of one of the students. There are red herrings, over the top deaths, lots of sex and even cop with a joint in one of the bullet chambers of his gun. And I loved the almost inappropriate use of music in this, they are songs new to me but still all surprisingly good. This is so far my pick of the challenge. There is an audio commentary on this disc entitled only "The Hysteria Continues" which is oddly intriguing and my next title up.

Commentary For Graduation Day (1981) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: So, The Hysteria Continues is an audio commentary podcast that focuses on horror movies. Great alternative to not having a track, a fun congeal experience. Sort of like watching with a group of friends. The track is fairly heavy with google'd factoids but hey, saves me the keystrokes. The commentary podcast is a genre I never really got into even though it is way up my alley. And after this track it is for sure something I need to look into. Kudos to Vinegar Syndrome on the suppliment.

Twins Of Evil (1971) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Prize from last year's challenge and much thanks goes out GoldenWheels. Peter Cushing is getting a bit older here but he is still bringing it. In this movie he plays a evangelical puritan who goes out and catches and burns suspected witches until his twin neices come under notice of a vampire with means. The story wasn't very original but it had that congenial familiar Hammer feel to it and the additional TnA helped for sure.
(3.5 out of 5)
67.)
The Flesh and the Fury: X-posing Twins of Evil (2012) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: As a relative newbie to Hammer horror this documentary was very interesting. It didn't just cover just the movie Twins of Evil but a fairly good chunk of Hammer history. It also covered the history of the lesbian vampire which seemed almost out of place but not an unwelcome subject (and very appropriate for todays theme). Overall it was a fantastic feature length supplement, thanks again to GoldenWheels for this as it it a movie I don't think I would have ever acquired otherwise.

Paranormon 3D (2012) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Another great darker children take from the team behind Coraline. It is a tale about a boy with Sixth Sense powers who bumbles up his part in a ritual to suppress an ancient curse and unleashes the spirit of a vengeful witch and several cursed zombies upon his home town. It is hard to do a kids movie with zombies but they really pulled it off. And man the awesome horror theme of Norman's room, I would love to have some of those things as an adult! While not as good as Coraline this was still very good and something I look forward to showing to my daughter in a few years.

Waxworks II: Lost In Time (1992) (DVD)
My Thoughts: As the events from the first Waxworks continue to unfold a stray hand from the burnt down museum kills the father of one of our survivors. And the only way to prove her innocence is to go back into the time-stream. They really didn't try to much for continuity here as this time they are jumping from horror movie to horror movie. Frankenstein, Nosferatu, Alien, Dawn of the Dead, or at least reasonable facsimiles. And while the premise is ridiculous and the acting is a little uneven this movie is far better than it has any right to be. This is one of the few DVDs that I actually have signed, in this case by the lead actor Zach Galligan. I considered going to this years con as well to get Bruce Campbell to also sign it but it seems at a certain point the older you get the less time you have. (Says the guy who has watched 69 movies so far this month). I look forward to a better release of this, maybe even with a commentary in the future.

Friday The 13th: The Series S03E04-06 (1989) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Getting back to their roots we get several personal benefits but only if you kill episodes. A cursed wheel chair that allows you to walk again, for a price. A hearing aid that lets you read people's minds but then you have to transfer the thoughts to someone else or you read explodes (very reminiscent of the healing gloves from season 1). And a callback episode to when the crew ran into an evil coven that involved zombie cops. Some quality tv here, glad I didn't just dismiss it due to Ryan's departure.

American Horror Story S05E03 (2015) (TV)*
My Thoughts: Alright, getting better. Loved the Angela Basset as a 70's blaxploitation actress. Twin Peaks cop about to go off the rails and that one girl has never looked better than she does now as a Blade Runner inspired 90's junkie. I hope we get a little of the actual hotel as the series progresses, the hidden rooms and fake hallways are an intriguing notion. And great ending, can't wait for Kathy Bates not to be the subserviant comic relief anymore.

I, Madman (1989) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: I liked the concept and the pulp style of this movie. I was never really wow'd but I did appreciate it. The story follows an attractive bookworm who's latest hour novel starts coming to life and killing those around her. Scream Factory just released a blu of this and I wondered to myself if it was worth the upgrade but I don't think it its.

My Wife's Thoughts: I was expected a little better but it was weird creature and seems like don’t know who’s the murderer. I thought that is real person but I guess not. I don’t care for it. I give only 2.5 star.

Fade To Black (1980) (VHS)
My Thoughts: I despised this movie when I first bought it in the 90's. Maybe because I associated a little too much with the main character but primarily because of the violent movies make people violent theme. At the time there was some school shooting or another and everyone wanted to blame it on horror movies and as a fan it really pissed me off. They even had some author come to our school to talk about some POS book he wrote about the correlation between the two. That kind of narrow mindedness still gets to me to this day but rewetting this for the first time in a long time I actually liked it quite a lot. A young movie fanatic goes off the deep end and starts cos-playing and killing people movie style, a highly enjoyable film for any cinefile. Even this kids kinda shitty movie related job is something I would love to do. And I am pretty sure that is Eddie from IT? And IMDB says it is. For a movie that has set scorn on my shelf for more than a decade his has been a very pleasant re-discovery.

The Last Slumber Party (1988) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Bad. So so bad. 80's video store trash. We have a slumber party with high school girls who are obviously in their late 20's (maybe 30's) and parent with maybe a 10 year age gap between them and their kids. Awful acting, plot and effects. So bad it's good? Maybe but I just was not in the right mood for it. I did see when I was looking for an image of the cover that this title has a rifftrax, that is something that would have heavily added to this trying experience.
(1.5 out of 5)
75.)
Terror At Tenkiller (1986) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: I don't know what I really expected considering it was on the same disc as The Last Slumber Party. But really the main reason I watched this was that it was shot entirely in my home state of Oklahoma. The movie was boring, unoriginal, badly acted and badly lit. A shoe in for worst film of the challenge but it did get half a point for being local and for scenes filmed in the school my daughter will eventually go to.
(1.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: Begging was pretty good, I thought one of the low budget good movie but the murder is already find it in the middle of the movie and doesn't have any trick. And ending… I should say I did not like ending and I expected people go to Tulsa so I can see the old Tulsa scenery.

Silent Hill: Revelations 3D (2012) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: This horrifically beautiful showpiece is the ultimate in style over substance. And beyond that is one of the best live action 3D titles I have watched in awhile (lots of pop outs). So there is a story too, about the daughter of the girl from the first movie and she has to go back... but really who cares? Really this whole movie is an excuse to show twisted imagery. And that is not necessarily a bad thing, I actually really liked this, I might have even liked this one more than the first. And admittidly the 3D did help, but sometimes it just doesn't have to be good to be enjoyable.

The Terror (1963) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: A very young Jack Nicolson plays a wayward French solider who happens upon a very old Boris Karloff and his spectral situation. There is a girl but then everyone is like "no, there's no girl" and then Nicolson is just kind of a imposing jerk for the rest of the movie trying to find the mystery woman. Nicolson was not that great of an actor when he was younger, it was kind of awkward to watch his scenes. Still a decent flick and also Dick Miller FTW.

Bewitched S04E08 (1967) (DVD) (Wild Card #1)*
My Thoughts: I watched Bewitched a lot growing up on Nick At Night and enjoyed it as a kid. Now I am an adult and the show has a totally different skew for me. In this one Sam takes her daughter out trick or treating for the first time and, of course, highjacks ensue. It really got me thinking about my daughter and how these last 31 halloweens have been pretty much all for me and now I need to start making some all for her. Yeah things got deep watching Bewitched do it's one bit camera stop trick.

Abbott And Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: I saw what I saw when I saw it. This was actually my first Abbot and Costello and it was so good I don't know if any of the other ones could even compare. Unlike that lousy Bowery Boys subset pick a few years back we get the actual Universal monsters here! Dracula fighting the Wolfman, Frankenstein causing havoc and at one point throwing a chick out a window! Essential viewing for anyone with a flame for those old monster movies. Just wish they could have worked the Creature in there.

Rifftrax For Ghosthouse (1988) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: An decent track that at times lost my interest but was entertaining. And for sure more entertaining than having to watch Ghosthouse without making fun of it. Even though this didn't blow me away I have a much greater affinity toward Rifftrax after this challenge and look forward to more of their product in the future. And Mike did make one very poignant observation about Ghosthouse; "haunting is just like getting laughs doing elbow farts, you do it too much and it is just not scary anymore." Also thanks to the Rifftrax team for this free-ish DVD.

The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror XXVI (2015) (TV) (Wild Card #2)*
My Thoughts: What a weird couch gag. Bob finally kills Bart, only to re-animate and them kill him again. There is a Homer as Godzilla skit and toxic waste spurns super powers in Lisa and Milhouse. Not super impressed by this years offering. I still like these characters it's just not entertaining anymore. The best part of the penultimate Treehouse of Horror was the self referential put down cameo from Kang and Kodos. Lets hope for next years swan song they go out with a bang.

The Walking Dead S06E03 (2015) (TV)*
My Thoughts: Nooooooooo. I was wrestling with being ambiguous or not about tonights big spoiler and then I realized that no one is ever going to read my review of a TV episode. A movie here or there maybe but not some random episode of The Walking Dead. So Glen, you will be missed. Probably the character I identified with the most. I enjoyed your story arc and seeing you here over the last half decade but you were just too nice for the zombie apocalypse. Man crew can't do anything lately without losing a bunch of people. Amazing 3 episode arc though.
(4.5 out of 5)
82.)
The Talking Dead S05E03 (2015) (TV)*
My Thoughts: Somber but casting way to much doubt over the fate of a departed favorite character. Now I am not so sure if they actually did it... Although there was not much there is the way of escape routes. I am thinking he got bitten but scurried under the dumpster, this way his walker can go back to camp and cause emotional havoc and we can have a Maggie mega breakdown (maybe she is pregnant even). Not a big fan of the lady mega fan they have as a frequent guest, I prefer more the random celeb or cast member.

Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: The saw is still family. Despite overwhelming internet scorn I actually enjoyed this movie. It ignores all previous sequels and fashions it's self as a direct sequel to the original. It fudges the numbers a bit needlessly when they could have just set it in 2002 instead of 2012 but whatever. After the events of the first movie the Sawyer family house is burn down by a lynch mob, but of course there are a few escapes. Out title chainsaw enthusiast and a baby who is raised by another family and never learns of her past until a mysterious inheritance comes into her life. Some interesting script flips and passable teen slashery, I wish they had done a bit more with the 3D but better than nothing. This is the most laid back sequel/reboot in the Chainsaw family so it might not be what people are looking for when they pick up a TCM movie but I liked it, haters be damned. But I do call shenanigans on Leatherface having such attractive kinfolk.

84.)
Family Guy: Peternormal Activity (2015) (Internet) (Wild Card #3)*
My Thoughts: Had to watch this the next day because they are still trying to go up against Walking Dead. Come on Fox, flip this with that Brooklyn Nine Nine show so I can watch your stuff and AMC's stuff. The opening bit alone here trumped the entirely of the Simpsons Treehouse of Horrors this year (Maniac Pope 2: Thou Shall Not Live). The guys set off on an attempted to write their own horror movie and end up accidentally killing someone. Lots of great little horror asides and I like how this actually connects to the Family guy game where the Simpsons special really didn't. Family Guy has still got it.

The Host (2006) (DVD)
My Thoughts: Disc rot! One hour and sixteen minutes in my unblemished DVD became unplayable in any players. So I had to find other sources to finish watching this title online, which is a bummer because I bought the 2 Disc Collectors Edition! The movie it's self is a near masterpiece (ending aside), that follows a family going back into an evacuated city to rescue a daughter caught but not eaten by the creature at large. When this movie came out the first American Godzilla was still fresh on everyones mind so it really didn't get a fair shake at the time. True now the CG is a little dated but this is still an amazing movie. Funny, touching, inspiring, relevant, this is a bucket list film.

Werewolf Woman (1976) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Aside from one dream sequence/possible historical flashback, there are no werewolves or werewolf women in this movie. Said seen does come with prosthetic werewolf boobs though. This movie is about a woman who was raped as a teenager and now goes crazy and kills people every time there is sexiness. A lot of which she provokes being near perpetually naked. It was a strange movie with a lot of crotch closeups. Not really what I was in the mood to see but had enough exploitation to keep my interest.
(3 out of 5)
87.)
Killer Tomatoes Strike Back! (1991) (DVD)
My Thoughts: No were-tomato people this time, instead tomatoes with faces. I liked how they have several returning actors here and while they tried to continue the slapstick success of Return of the Killer Tomatoes it just doesn't hit the mark this time. The main actors are less likable and the jokes just too goofy. Not a complete waste of film but very disappointing after the cinematic masterpiece that was Return Of The Killer Tomatoes. Oddly enough both the closing and opening bits were very good. Maybe because they didn't have to serve a plot for an hour and half. Next up is Killer Tomatoes Eat France, my hopes are not high.
(2.5 out of 5)
88.)
Killer Tomatoes Eat France! (1992) (DVD)
My Thoughts: And more of the same but a little worse still. Now the tomatoes can talk and have individual ugly faces a la the popular toy/cartoon of the time Madballs. It has also started to take on things from the cartoon and loses previously established anchor characters. I think maybe this is how I like the first two so much. Once you finish watching the last movie in the quadrillogy here you just don't want to have anything else to do with the franchise for a long time. It must have been at least half a decade since I have seen these last two installments. Disappointing.

Ruby (1977) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: What did I just watch? A young couple get ambushed and the man killed by the mob (which he is in apparently). Anyway the lady remains friends with the mobsters and hires all of them to help her run her drive in movie theater. And then the fella that died at the beginning comes back to seek his revenge, but like 20 years later. And they decided to make it period piece. One of the most uneven disjointed movies I have seen this challenge. Really feels like 3 movies pressed together. A good candidate for a future Rifftrax and it's not boring, just not good either.
(2.5 out of 5)
90.)
The Witches (1990) (DVD)
My Thoughts: A favorite of mine from when I was a child. Rewatching it now it is pretty obvious why, it's a Jim Henson production! I loved the witch/mouse makeup. And the idea of being mouse sized and playing with all my toys was enchanting as a child. I mean he got to sleep in the toy Ghostbusters building! I am still bitter that my mom gave all of my awesome childhood toys away (TMNT, Ghostbusters, RoboCop, Batman, Mighty Max, etc, ect.) I am boxing that shit up for my daughter and throwing it in the attic, then when she is 30 I will let her have her stuff again, maybe to pass down, maybe to sell. Great kids movie and something I am looking forward to watching with my daughter in the future.

Hatchet II (2010) (Blu-Ray)
My Thoughts: Ok, I know there is a Hatchet III but that ending seemed pretty definitive. This was fun still, not quite the breakthrough hit that the first one was but still had lots of the ultra violence and was still brimming with horror references. This one played out as a 'what if a lynch mob had gone after Jason'. An interesting concept and similar to what Texas Chainsaw did in there reboot sequel. Decent but I do feel that this series is a bit played out now and have zero interest in seeing the threequel.

I, Frankenstein 3D (2014) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: I had hoped when I first heard about this movie I had hoped that it was based on the Dean Koontz Frankenstein novels. It unfortunately was not. In this movie Frankensteins monster gets caught up in a battle between earthbound angels and demons a la Underworld. The story and plotting were borderline retarded the 3D was bland and it felt like I was watching a sequel to the ill-fated Van Helsing. It looked slick and you could tell some money was put into the final product but overall there is just no reason to see this. Let me put it this way, R.I.P.D is a movie that is going to get replayed at some point, this will not.

The Legacy (1978) (DVD)*
My Thoughts: Were-Cat Servants Of Satan would not be a very accurate title for this movie. A weird little British set horror movie about a young couple happenstancing into a dying wealthy man's manor only to find leaving to be impossible. I like the idea of this movie and there were a lot of memorable sequences but something must have been lost in translation from book to screen as it tends to drag. Kudos for the narrator from Rocky Horror here as an German asshole. Decent and worth watching at least once for some light were-cat-ery and pacts with the devil, otherwise somewhat forgettable.
(3 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: It was very slow movie. I like the beginning but middle it get so slow and I am not sure about that. I like the ending and story is a little strange. Cat, I thought that cat is the nurse but I guess that cat is not. I was wondering they get lost when they steal the car but how was that happen? Because they riding bike and get accident they come from somewhere else. It was too slow but only 3 star, could be great movie but it was too slow in the middle.

The Cat And The Canary (1939) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: Hey my first Bob Hope movie. He reminds me of a less over the top Don Knotts. In fact I kind of want to watch The Shakiest Gun in the West , but no... must... resist.... The movie was surprisingly undated for something that came out in 1939, the exact same movie made with different actors in the early 60's would have still played. The movie revolved around a group of distant relatives brought together for the reading of a will but not everyone approves of the beneficiaries. I think I need to look into getting a Bob Hope collection disc.

Japanese Hell (1999) (DVD)*
My Thoughts:It was kind of fascinating watching this with the wife as I would have otherwise had no idea that these were all real events depicted (the crimes). The movie it's self didn't strike me as very good but the experience of watching it with my wife and having her talk about what actually happened made it good. Thing like her uncle being on the train that day, just on a different line. Or public reaction to certain events. All of the "hell" scenes were like watching a bad high school play about Dante's Inferno with a Japanese cast. Again not a great movie but the experience was worth it in my book. Score for movie actual.
(2 out of 5)
My Wife's Thoughts: That beginning is very interesting. I though they are collecting famous crime scene but I do not understand why they did not use actual name. And why they pick only 2 crimes? You have more crimes they can pick and make shorter that religious story. And when they describe the hell, thats ok but those Enma and devil looks so stupid and looks so cheap. I think this is low budget movie. I would say 2.5 but thats japanese movie so I can give 3.

Night Of The Yellow Beast (1971) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: I am relatively new to the Philippine B-Movie craze. Which is odd considering both my interest in bad movies and Asian girls. Not a good movie by any stretch but it is oddly interesting watching white actors star in a movie and be otherwise completely surrounded by Asian people. The film is about a man who makes a pact with the devil (a squat Pilipino man) and the flip side of his deal is that he goes werewolf sometimes (badly). I didn't like it but it was intriguing enough not to be awful (depending on your point of view).

Killer Crocodile (1989) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: Well, for the first 5 minutes things were going fine, ridiculous monster, scenes stolen straight out of Jaws and then the movie flipped over to French. Try as I might I could not find a streamable copy in English so I watched this Italian movie in French with no subs. I probably would have stopped but it was one of the last 2 items I needed to complete the checklist. But I did understand when they said "le crocedeal". Not sure if an English track would have even helped this all that much, it is a pretty bad Jaws knock off with a ridiculous practical alligator that we see a lot and in detail. I could see this being a so bad it's good affair though with a couple of friend and a couple of brews but it is a bit early in the day for me. Those here for alligator ridiculousness will not be disappointed though.

American Horror Story S05E04 (2015) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: I like how even in a horror themed show the rules are still always a little different on Halloween. This time famous serial killers get to return to the hotel for just one night and Gaga keeps seducing and vamping people. I wonder how they are going to intertwine the vampire and ghost story. Obviously she was his wife in the past but I just don't really see where it is all going. Good stuff though. Better than Freakshow.

Quicksilver Highway (1997) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: My last title for checklist completion! Christopher Lloyd and Matt Frewer (The Lawnmower Man) in the same movie, how are we suppose to tell them apart? This was a duology so it was already working up hill in comparison to a traditional anthology but what it did have going for it was that it had both Clive Barker and Steven King. Needless to say I was pretty jazzed considering the talent but wow was this bottom of the barrel scrapping crap. One story was about an evil pair of children's walking teeth and the other about hands that gain sentience and want to be free of their users. I almost liked the second one just because it was so absurd but man these were stupid. This movie is the epitome of why the 90's were a bad time for horror.

The Houses October Built (2014) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: Not bad found footage style horror movie. A group of friends set off to find the most extreme haunted house but little do they know how deep the rabbit hole actually goes. The main problem with this style of movie is the way everyone freaks out exactly the same in every climax. But aside from the formulaic issues this was a creepy fun ride across the country to haunted houses that are way better than any of the ones I have ever been to. Also on the disc is a documentary about haunted houses that was the inspiration of this film, something which I will have to check out at a later date. The porcelain girl and the guy in the bunny suit were legit creepy.

Ash Vs. The Evil Dead (2015) (Internet)*
My Thoughts: The most satisfying view of the challenge, but fuck I wish this was longer! Ash is amazing, any other actor and this just wouldn't have worked. Bruce is the man. When the conversations of sequels that are better than the original come up this will be in the mix. I really hope this season ends with Ash being sucked through a time portal. I was grinning like an idiot almost the entire time, this is good tv.

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (2010) (Blu-Ray)*
My Thoughts: After years of everybody raving about this I finally sat down to watch it and now I am on the band wagon. This and the new Evil Dead were a fantastic way to end the challenge. A wonderful horror comedy of errors. The title characters are unfalteringly likable and found myself laughing quite a bit and I am sure it was not all because of the alcohol. A great companion piece to Cabin In The Woods and mandatory viewing for anyone who fashions themselves a fan of the genre.

Re: The 11th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa


Goal:
31 Different Beers
One For Each Day
Of The Challenge


Legend:[/color]
* = FTD

Wife's Thoughts In Blue
[/size]
1.)
Marshall: Oktoberfest Lager (Oklahoma)
My Thoughts: Last year's runner up for best Oktoberfest was a little disappointing this time around. It wasn't quite the same flavor profile as last year. This time it was a little punchier with a slight citrus note before a kind of bitter liquorish finish. Last year there was an excellent balance between a mellow marzen flavor and solid lager, this time around it is skewed much further to the lager side. Still an above average beer but no where near as epic as last year's batch.
(3.5 out of 5)
2.)
Wychwood: Hobgoblin (England)
My Thoughts: Hobgoblin, thats horror relate, right? It has been a long time since I had this beer. Maybe close to a decade, I remember that when I first got it there was a lot of sediment at the bottom of the bottle that I was worried about drinking at the time. Anyway this English ale is dark bitter and kind of root-y. It is very reminiscent of Guinness Black. I will give it props for being a 'real beer' but I prefer English ales that don't taste of burnt coffee and cigarette buds. I am more of a pub ale man myself. But I am sure I will give this another go in the future if simply for the seasonally specific tropes on the bottle.
(2.5 out of 5)
3.)
Flying Dog: Dogtoberfest Marzen (Maryland)*
My Thoughts: A hoppier marzen, not to the point of being an unbearable though. It has a slight caramel finish, wish there was more there but a good punchy carbonated beverage. Would pair well with food not too heavy, kind of marzen light. And as it warms it takes on more and more of that traditional marzen flavor.
(3.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Not bad, it’s not almost taste like no beer it’s … bitter cider. How many alcohol content? Seems low.
4.)
Shipyard: Smashed Pumpkin (Maine)
My Thoughts: Had this one a couple of years ago in a larger format but the transition to regular size bottles does not seem to have effected the quality. Heavy delicious pump scent on top, which is weird because I don’t really like pumpkin, at least not the actual vegetable. Same thick almost over pumpkin concentrate flavor and the much appreciated 9% alcohol content. Does seem to get thicker an more bitter as you drink it but then alcohol kicks in so you kind of stop caring. An adventure beer, if there ever was one.
(4.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Very bitter and strong pumpkin flavor. Maybe good with meal... 2.5... too bitter.
5.)
Choc Beer: Choctoberfest (Oklahoma)
My Thoughts: Way better than last year. Light with hints of pear an barley on top with a nice punchy not to hoppy finish. Better cold, as it warms it gets a bit of an odd bitter aftertaste, otherwise surprisingly good! I looked back at my review of this beer last year and it is apparently a hire me resume to the company. If you guys are reading I am still available.
(4 out of 5)
6.)
Jack-O Traveler: Pumpkin Shandy (Vermont)*
My Thoughts: A nice heavy pumpkin scent and flavor. This beer reminded me of eating a pumpkin spice cake donut. It really doesn't even taste like beer... it's so strange. A festive lightly carbonated pumpkin drink. Really not quite sure how I feel about this one.
(3.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Pumpkin taste. Like... am...ah..pumpkin pie in the drink. They did good job but it's not taste like beer.
7.)
Samuel Adams: Pumpkin Batch (Massachusetts)*
My Thoughts: This beer starts out with a weird chemical pumpkin smell on top. It has a light taste with an strange pumpkin flavor on top of that weird river water taste. I need to find out what caused that flavor. I taste it every now and then but it always seems to be kind of random, different brands and kinds of beer... Anyway I only ever buy Samuel Adams anymore as a count point. Aside from their premium stuff (which is fantastic) it's just not worth buying.
(2 out of 5)
8.)
Santa Fe Brewing Company: Oktoberfest (New Mexico)
My Thoughts: Do I detect the scent of pretzel? This is a nice smooth Oktoberfest ale. Nothing remarkable but a highly drinkable beer. This is essentially par for an Oktoberfest brew. I want at least this every time.
(3 out of 5)
9.)
Werewolf Howling Ginger Beer (Washington)*
My Thoughts: Ok, this one is a bit of a cheat because it's not real beer. But it had a werewolf on the bottle and I have never had ginger beer before so I decided to give it a go. This turned out to be a mistake. Things started out light with just a hint of ginger, a sweet almost candy like drink. As I continued it started to take on notes of wasabi and spice up a bit. I stopped when it started to feel like I had been gargling pepper water. A throughly unpleasant experience.
(1 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Taste like ginger ale without soda, like ginger juice almost. Very sweet, almost taste like asian ginger tea. I don’t understand why it’s called beer. Aftertaste is tingling my throat. Taste like concentrate almost. I don't like.
10.)
Paulaner: Oktoberfest Marzen (Germany)
My Thoughts: Oh yeah, now that's a beer. Heavy on the barley and the caramel, you actually feel like you are drinking something of substance without drinking a dark beer. Very pleasant creamy taste, low on the carbonation. Kind of tastes someone dropped a Werther's caramel in it. But what do you expect from a beer from the Rhineland?
(4.5 out of 5)
11.)
Shipyard: Pumpkinhead (Maine)
My Thoughts: Way more on the pumpkin spice than actual pumpkin flavor on this one. I think I am digging it. Not to light but heavy with the seasonal presence. Kind of like the guy equivalent of a Pumpkin Spice Latte. That made me a little sad to write that. It does get a bit thicker and more manly as it warms...
(4 out of 5)
12.)
Left Hand Brewing: Oktoberfest (Colorado)
My Thoughts: This marzen it a bit too bitter, starting to taste more like a brown beer than a marzen. You get some caramel notes but it's just too hoppy, not the marzen style I was in the mood for. And for sure disappointing after that Pauly.
(2.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Very mild, very thick taste, taste like German beer.
13.)
Oculto (Missouri)*
My Thoughts: That tastes like a liquored up beer… I think I like it. Starts in your mouth like a light, ordinary beer then you are hit with this slurry of strange flavors, hints of tequila and what I can only assume is the blue agave mentioned on the label. I like it as a way to break up the monotony but not something I would purchase in mass for myself… unless I was having a Day of the Dead party. Better than any cervesa I have ever had.
(3.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Taste like some kind of wine and sake mix... but smells like beer... very weird.
14.)
Sierra Nevada: Oktoberfest (California)
My Thoughts: As with most Sierra Nevada stuff it is just too hoppy. Traditional oktoberfest taste with the hops dial turned way up. That overly floral hops smell and taste does not a good beer make in my book. But for IPA fans looking for an oktoberfest lovechild it could be the key to happiness. Might pair well with cheese though.
(2 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Very bitter but aftertaste is pretty...mild.
15.)
Dinker Acker: Oktoberfestbier Marzen (Germany)*
My Thoughts: Not bad for a cheapie caned beer. It's a smooth traditional lightly carbonated marzen. The caramel flavor is chased by nice sweet liquorish taste. I like that it comes in a larger format can and it is an all around good cheap marzen. It reminds me of the stuff I would get in the supermarket in Japan. High alcohol content, quality product and on the cheap.
(4 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Mild, nice smooth texture, I like it.
16.)
Flying Dog: Pumpkin IPA (Maryland)*
My Thoughts: It’s an IPA with pumpkin puree. Smells like a pumpkin field but taste like chewing on beer mash. Didn’t care for it, could have used more pumpkin and less hops.
(2 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Very hoppy but smells really expensive type beer and nice texture. But I do not feel any alcohol.
17.)
Hofbrau: Oktoberfest (Germany)
My Thoughts: Same Heineken-esk Oktoberfest brew. Smells like something my dad would drink. My childhood memory of the smell of beer. Did not do quite as well for me this year as previous years. It is a green bottle beer after all. A lower class german beer.
(2.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Very light, but clear sharp taste, I kind of like it but seems different than regular october beer, which country is that? (Germany) Ah, really? I thought Germany only has darker kind of beer.
18.)
Hacker-Pschorr: Original Oktoberfest (Germany)
My Thoughts: This is amazing, it might be a little due to me have taken a few days break but this is so so delicious. A perfect Oktoberfest ale, drinking this feels like being there. Wonderful notes of pear, white grapes and caramel. Lighter than you might think not overly crisp finish. Just an all around all star beer. I need to go buy more of this. So far this is my best of show.
(5 out of 5)
19.)
Woodchuck Hard Cider: Pumpkin (Vermont)
My Thoughts: Smells like an off apple cider maybe with a little dirty sock to it. The taste is very apple cider, not really feeling the pumpkin here, maybe as a slight aftertaste. I feel like that was the same thing I said last year. You would thing I have learned my lesson by now. Funky cider.
(2.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Taste like apple cider... smells like apple cider. Not taste like beer at all its like Asian apple cider kinda drink. Zero pumpkin.
20.)
Samuel Adams: Oktoberfest (Massachusetts)
My Thoughts: Restaurant staple Samuel Adams Oktoberfest is drinkable and doesn’t make you feel as lame like getting a bud might but that is all it really it is; a restaurant beer. I wanted to taste this on the same day I tried my home-brew for the first time, if I can make it at least as good as a Sammy then I would think things bode well with my new hobby. Back to the beer at hand, the flavor comes out on this one better while warm. Kind of a burnt hop taste up front with hints of your traditonal caramel finish. It is decent as long as it is not the main event.
(3 out of 5)
21. - 22.)
SterlingBen's Oktoberfest Style Homebrew (Oklahoma)*
Opening Thoughts: I really hope this is good because I have 5 gallons of it to drink. My brew had quite a lot of yeast (or sediment) in the bottles so I am trying two tasting methods on it. One; a gentle pour so that the yeast remains in the bottle and then a more kitchen sink approach.
No Yeast Pour Thoughts: Very floral hoppy smell on top. Damn, I have that river water effect going on here. Probably something to do with resolved sediment/left over beer wort agitated during the bottling process. Even though there were some issue in the brewing process the final product is still beer. Not an especially great beer but as a science project I will be able to stomach it. Not getting much Oktoberfest flavor out of it either more just a generic microbrew taste. A slightly over carbonated and hoppy amateur effort.
(2.5 out of 5)
Whole Bottle Pour Thoughts: That river effect seems multiplied with the sediment poured in. Also it takes on an off scent... a little chemical smelling, also much sharper hops. Pouring it without seems to be the way to go with this one. Not quite the success I was looking for here but c'est la vie. Next batch I am going to go for something with a high alcohol content.
(2 out of 5)
Wife's Whole Bottle Pour Thoughts: Smells fine. Very mild, good texture, I thought it’s more thicker, darker taste but feel like no alcohol. But defiantly better than cheap American beer. Better than I expected. Not that bad.
23.)
Rogue Farms: Pumpkin Patch Ale (Oregon)
My Thoughts: A challenge staple that is maybe more about the bottle than what is inside. Same earthy light pumkin taste as last year with maybe a bit more of the spicy nutmeg. There is almost too much nutmeg, kind of feels like a nutmeg drink with pumpkin scent. This year it really just smells more interesting than it actually was.
(3 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Feel like no alcohol. Smells little pumpkin but no pumpkin flavor at all. Very mild, I kinda like it.
24.)
Shiner: Oktoberfest (Texas)
My Thoughts: Tastes a bit of flavoring added to a light bear but it thickens up a bit while you drink it. Not bad. Heavy on the barely with an oddly sharp fruity finish. Drinkable but not spectacular
(3 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Very crisp flavor little bitter but easy to drink, I don’t think it is any pumpkin flavor. (There is not suppose to be) Oh thats Oktoberfest? Oops.
25.)
Point: Oktoberfest (Wisconsin)
My Thoughts: Indistinctive generic toberfest ale with no caramel notes. It does have that Oktoberfest smell but it taste almost like a Killians red ale. Not feeling it. Which is weird because my tasting in 2013 seemed to indicate that this one was a grand slam.
(2 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: It’s almost same taste as previous beer but it’s thinner it’s almost like american cheap beer with color.
26.)
Boulevard: Bob’s ’47 Oktoberfest (Kansas)
My Thoughts: An interesting fuller bodied Oktoberfest ale. Heavy on the wheat with the classic marzen finish. Good beer, awful art design. This is the second year for Boulevard and it's continued above average performance. I need to check out a few more of their offerings.
(3.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Too bitter, taste like something strong liquor like brandy or whiskey, I do not care for it.
27.)
Red Hook: Out Of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter (Washington)
My Thoughts: Dark and bitter, like my exes. Tastes of chalky liquorish and coffee with maybe a hint of root vegetable, not sure if it is pumpkin precisely. An intriguing if not very palatable dark beer.
(2.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Very bitter and hoppy and smells like barley tea. I don’t care for it.
28.)
Gordon Biersch: Marzen (California)*
My Thoughts: There is a fruity sweetness to this marzen. Apple maybe? Otherwise it is kind of think with a hoppy bite at the end and a permeating liquorish taste inherent with less german marzens. A flavoring tactic perhaps? A little sub par and a off flavor.
(2.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Very hoppy, bitter, strong smell, it is ok.
29.)
Coop: Oktoberfest (Oklahoma)*
My Thoughts: Taste like a Blue Moon just more bitter, some fruit might compliment this well. Not really getting those oktoberfest notes though. A bit thin, low carbonation with lots of hops. But what do you really expect from an Oklahoma City brew, they don’t know how to make good beer out there. Now Tulsa on the other hand… It's ok though. Sub-par for an oktoberfest, but decent for a round about beer. And I do like the higher alcohol content.
(3 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Taste like no hop, very thick and strong bitter. I don’t like it. It was made in Oklahoma City. Really? Did suck job.
30.)
Samuel Adams: Fat Jack Double Pumpkin (Massachusetts)
My Thoughts: The always weird treat of this challenge is the Sam Adams Fat Jack. Maybe it’s the 10% alcohol, ok probably it’s the 10 percent alcohol, but this is one of, if not the, most interesting things that Sam Adams does. A dogfish style weird beer. Earthy deep pumpkin flavor missing from most pumpkin beers and it's otherwise surprisingly light with a very alcohol finish. Almost like someone dropped a shot of tequila in a good flavorful pumpkin beer. Delicious.
(4.5 out of 5)
My Wife's Taste: Bitter. Smells like soy sauce and miso put together. Very stink. Bitter stay... bitterness in (my) throat. I don’t like it. Which company? Samuel Adams, like their premium beer Premium bullshit beer thats call. A few mins later Seriously taste awful, still stay in my mouth.
31.)
Paulaner: Oktoberfest Wiesn (Germany)
My Thoughts: This year the obscenely large can of Paulaner came with it's own oversized barware that I just had to include, even though it totally throws off the formatting of my entire list. <-- That is my next day written opener, here are my exact drunk notes on the subject: "This beer came with it;s own fucking glass! Just drinking it out of this behemoth makes you feel like a man." And I have got to say, while less elegant that is on point. It is a different experience drinking a good German beer out of a huge heavy glass. This is a smooth delicious premium beer and was a great end to a great challenge. Goodbye OHMC, until next year, cheers.

The Middle always delivers on Halloween, but this was their best one yet.

Another great Halloween TV episode. I'm glad sitcoms have been doing this again lately. TV seemed to get away from Halloween episodes in years past. I am disappointed, however, that Modern Family did not have a new one this year. Their Season 2 Halloween episode is one of my favorites ever.
31. [1 pt] Waxwork II: Lost In Time☼ (1992, DVD)
I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I had seen the first one when it first came out on VHS, but never got around to seeing the sequel until now. Quite different from the first one, the parodies were pretty entertaining. The last segment kind of dragged on though.

October 30, 2015

I have more fun with this every time I watch it.
33. [1 pt] Fright Night (1985, Blu-ray)
My late uncle turned me on to this movie in the late 80s. He said that Charlie reminded him of me.

This movie oozes atmosphere. Great final "actual movie" to end the challenge with

Re: The 11th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa




LIST HAS BEEN FINALIZED; SEE STATS AT BOTTOM


Orange Title - Denotes first-time-ever viewing

Caution: Spoilers may follow!

Last year's tally: 32 films; 15 first-time viewings

This year's goals: 50 films; 30 first-time viewings; complete theme nights and subset lists



9/30/2015

NOTE: These films are NOT counted in my totals, as I consider them to be a sort of pre-Challenge warm up.

XX Carnival of Souls (1962) (DVD) - Carnival of Souls has been on my radar for quite a while. I think that the first time I heard about it was when I bought Michael Weldon’s Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film. Then, a few years later, around 1986 or 1987, a new friend who was also into strange cinema made me a copy of a bootleg of it that he had traded for. I really, really liked it the first time that I saw it; watching it on VHS from a somewhat beaten-up print really gave it another layer of atmosphere. When it was re-released theatrically in 1989, I caught it in a theater near Georgetown University, where I worked. I took a co-worker, but I was afraid that he was going to hate it, as it was a 27-year-old, black-and-white, ultra-low-budget film. But he liked it, and my appreciation for it grew after seeing on a big screen with an audience. Watching it last night, I didn’t like it quite as much as I remembered liking it, but it’s still so utterly unique that I don’t see how any horror fan could really dislike it. A lot of the things in it that now seem obvious were probably quite novel at the time of its release; the only reason that they’re not novel now is that Carnival of Souls has had such a back-door sort of influence on the genre that ideas from it have quietly seeped into quite a few films over the years. I’d definitely put it on a list of the hundred best horror films ever.

XX Diabolique (1955) (Blu-ray) - I sure do love me some Diabolique. At the time of its initial release, it was widely considered to be the scariest film ever made. I have to agree; nothing before 1955 even comes close to the terror that the last ten minutes of the film inspire. It may also have been the first film to close with a request not to give away the ending to others. Alfred Hitchcock was so jealous of Diabolique that he hired the writers of the source novel to write him a story for a movie; the result was Vertigo (and he lifted the “don’t tell the ending” bit for Psycho as well). Officially remade twice (including a very good made-for-TV version directed by John Badham pre-Saturday Night Fever); unofficially ripped-off probably dozens of times.


10/1/2015

1. Night of the Demon (1980) (DVD) - Night of the Demon is so very, very weird. It seems like it’s going to follow the path of various Bigfoot films before it, but it goes places that no other Bigfoot film dares (or has the good sense) to venture. In fact, unless I’m mistaken, the film’s main plot point may very well have been taken from a National Enquirer headline from the mid-1970s. The screenplay has some major structural problems (for instance, what bearing did the ritual in the woods have on the plot?), and the acting ranges from acceptable to really awful…yet it remains watchable, mainly due to the still over-the-top gore sequences.


10/2/2015

2. The Happiness of the Katakuris (2001) (DVD) - When I first saw The Happiness of the Katakuris a decade or so ago, I remember thinking that it was okay, but I didn’t really warm to it. Because of my initial lukewarm response, I wasn’t really looking forward to watching it again for the Challenge, but I girded my loins and put it in the player…and enjoyed it absolutely and totally this go-round. In fact, I remember thinking when it still had about a half-hour to go that I could easily watch another few hours of the adventures of the Katakuris, and I was disappointed when it had to end. I laughed out loud several times during it (especially when it went karaoke for one of the songs). I’m discovering that I usually don’t “get” Miike’s films the first time around, but after a second watch they’ve all become favorites.


10/3/2015

3. The Wicker Man (1973) (DVD) - A mainland police officer goes to an island off the coast of Scotland to investigate a missing child. Once he gets there, he finds that there’s a lot more to this missing person case than he anticipated. Although this is often described as a horror film, I feel that it’s much more of a mystery with horrific elements than a flat-out horror film. It’s rare that a film’s music contributes as much to a film’s success as the music for this one does; it’s spot-on perfect (even though I don’t think that I’d enjoy a soundtrack album of it very much). Like Carnival of Souls two days ago, this is essential viewing for any real movie fan, and it’s doubly-essential for horror buffs. Best line: “Do sit down, Sergeant--shocks are so much better absorbed with the knees bent.”


10/4/2015

4. The Green Inferno (2013) (Theatrical Showing) - Gore-fest disguised as an environmental…gore-fest is actually a lot more fun than I thought that it would be. Yeah, it’s disgusting, but that’s kind of the point of films like this one. You can tell that Eli Roth wasn’t taking any of it seriously, either. It did make me think, however, that the next time I’m traveling with a group over possibly cannibal-infested territory, I’ve got to make sure that there’s at least one person in the group fatter than me. That’s something that the Lonely Planet guidebooks’ll never tell you.

5. Bad Ronald (1974) (DVD) - To escape a murder charge, a teen builds a fake wall where a bathroom door once was and hides out there. His mother is the only one who knows he’s there, but when she dies and the house is sold to a new family with three attractive teenage daughters, the boy’s caution takes a backseat to his crush on one of the girls. Fairly average ‘70s TV movie is helped by some good performances and couple of more-shocking-than-expected moments.

6. The Devil's Daughter (1973) (DVD) - Girl who barely knew her mother finds out after her mother’s death that her daddy is the devil and she’s betrothed to a demon. Shelly Winters stars as Lilith, head of the satanic cult. Fun in a stupid kind of way.

7. The Horror at 37,000 Feet (1973) (Streaming--YouTube) - Buddy Ebsen, Chuck Connors, and the Shat (William Shatner, natch) battle some ancient druid spirits seven miles up in this dumb cross between Airport and The Exorcist. Featuring a frozen dog and some sort of green crap bubbling up from the cargo hold. Easily the least of the three made-for-TV movies I watched today.


10/5/2015

8. Zombies of Mass Destruction (2009) (DVD) - Zombies invade the pretty island town of Port Gamble, Washington, causing the usual havoc. The only new thing that this film brings to the table is the explanation for the zombie outbreak: Middle Eastern terrorists caused it via viral warfare. Other than that, it’s pretty paint-by-numbers, but it’s certainly watchable, and the female lead is quite attractive.


10/6/2015

9. Cold Prey (2006) (DVD) - Slasher movie, Norwegian-style. A quintet of snow-boarders find just the right deserted spot to spend the day on the slopes, until one of them breaks his leg and they have to find shelter for the night. Fortunately, there’s an abandoned ski lodge nearby. Unfortunately, they won’t be the only ones there. Cold Prey borrows liberally from the slasher films of the early ‘80s, but it puts what it steals to good use, rather than just trotting out clichés and showing them off as if to say, “Hey, we saw My Bloody Valentine, too!” And you’ve got to love a movie with such a cold, desolate setting that still manages to get one of its female characters down to her underwear for a while.


10/7/2015

10. The Mist (2007) (DVD) - Based on Stephen King’s novella that first appeared in the seminal anthology Dark Forces, The Mist is the third feature-length adaptation of a King work by writer-director Frank Darabont (who also made a short film from King’s story “The Woman in the Room”). It’s also probably the worst of the three. That’s not to say that there’s not plenty to like in it, because the acting is top-notch and the cinematography is adequately eerie…but the film is overlong by at least twenty minutes, and then there’s that ending…. I thought it was a powerful way to end the film when I saw it in the theater eight years ago, but now I find it to be almost a mean joke on the audience. I would have much preferred the ambiguity at the end of King’s story than what Darabont has served up. On the other hand, I was even more impressed with Marcia Gay Harden’s performance this viewing, and it was fun to see where Darabont found three of The Walking Dead’s cast. I would still recommend it, but with some major reservations.

11. Eyes Without a Face (1960) (DVD) - A surgeon who has accidentally disfigured his daughter attempts to transplant other girls’ faces onto her, without a lot of success. I find it hard to believe that I’d never seen this French classic before tonight, but at least that’s now been rectified. And a classic it is, too, with what had to have been literally sickening close-ups of the facial surgeries and an oddly jaunty, yet entirely appropriate, musical theme by Maurice Jarre. I have a few minor quibbles with the film, but, overall, it’s as good as I’ve always heard that it is.

12. Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead (2014) (Streaming--Netflix) - Interminable zombie opus from Australia follows a few guys around as they lay waste to zombies by way of computer-generated blood spatters. In a parallel story, one of the guys’ sister is kidnapped and experimented upon because she’s allergic to the zombie virus due to her Type A negative blood. Oh, and she somehow becomes able to cause zombies to do her bidding via telepathic mind control. What meager pleasures the film offers up are inundated by the sheer pointlessness of the endeavor. And did I mention the film’s new addition to zombie lore? Zombie blood and breath are flammable...so much so that our roving gang rigs up a vehicle that runs on zombie breath. Give me a frickin’ break.

13. Ring of Curse (2011) (Streaming--Netflix) - Outsider teenage girl is bullied into writing a play for school; little do her classmates know that everything she writes is cursed, and whoever reads it dies. This low-budget film is rather ambitious, considering that it was conceived mainly as a vehicle for the three girls in the Japanese pop group Buono! (the exclamation mark is theirs, not mine). It has a Rashomon-like structure, with the middle part of the film the most effective, as it’s told from the point of view of the bullied girl. It’s certainly not the best Japanese horror film that I’ve ever seen, but I’ve also seen far worse. Keep watching after the credits for a fun meta-moment.

14. Horror Express (1972) (DVD) - Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing star as two British scientists traveling aboard a train bound from China to Russia. Lee is transporting a half-man, half-ape fossil that’s been found in an ice cave; unfortunately for everyone on the train, the monster thaws out and a body count ensues. Telly Savalas shows up with a half-hour to go and chews the scenery to shreds. When I was in high school, the local television station bought a movie syndication package featuring Horror Express, and they ended up showing it at least once a month for about a year. I think that I watched it almost every time that they showed it. Fast-paced and fun.

15. Bay of Blood (1971) (Streaming--Amazon Prime) - Mario Bava directs this influential giallo wherein someone is knocking off the heirs to a plot of land around a bay. While this wasn’t the first body count movie (or even the first one directed by Bava), its graphic mayhem set a template that proved to be a seminal influence on the slasher film (particularly on Friday the 13th Part 2, which copied most of its death scenes). Also known as Twitch of the Death Nerve.


10/11/2015

16. The Last House on the Left (1972) (Blu-ray) - Wes Craven’s first film, a rip-off of Bergman’s The Virgin Spring, tells the story of a group of thugs who first murder a girl, then wind up having to spend the night at her parents’ house when their car breaks down. Genuinely disturbing film is tough to watch and even tougher to appreciate; even Craven himself can’t justify it except in academic terminology. The unfunny comedy relief somehow makes it even more horrifying.

17. Wes Craven's New Nightmare (1994) (DVD) - It’s ten years after A Nightmare on Elm Street, and, because the Freddy Kruger films are no longer being made, the spirit of Freddy is getting restless and needs an outlet back into our world. What better way back in than to start showing up in the dreams of the real people who created the movies: Heather Langenkamp, Wes Craven, and Robert Englund? At once silly and dizzyingly self-reflexive, New Nightmare is much like a cinematic Mobius strip that keeps turning in on itself. It’s sorta-kinda brilliant until it gives in to its own tropes with about twenty minutes left. Unfortunately, audiences didn’t want meta-Freddy, and the film fizzled at the box office. Craven tried going meta again two years later with much more profitable results.


10/12/2015

18. Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965) (Streaming--Amazon Prime) - Amicus’s first anthology film has a great cast, some good atmosphere, and very, very few scares. To say that it’s tame would be a gross understatement--there’s barely a shiver to be had in its 98-minute running time. It’s still fun, but the lack of scares and the lack of resolution in some of the stories (the second one especially--it just stops cold) keep me from recommending it to all but the most rabid of British horror fans.

19. Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990) (DVD) - I remember going to see this when it was released in the early part of 1990. I was living in Shirlington, Virginia, and it was playing at a theater that was very close to my apartment. I remember that it was really cold that day, and that two teenage girls wandered up to me and begged me to buy them tickets to go see it and to pretend that I was their older brother so that they could get in. What I DON’T remember is anything whatsoever about the movie. So tonight’s viewing was just like a first-time viewing for me, although I won’t count it as such. The plot, as much as it has one, has two friends driving cross-country running afoul of Leatherface and his family. Leatherface now has a mother and three brothers, but no father…so continuity with the first two films has gone straight out of the window. There's also a little girl in the house that I thought was Leatherface's sister, but according to the IMDB, she's actually his daughter! That takes things to a whole new level of messed up, if that is indeed the girl's role in the family. Parts of the film play like a partial remake of the 1980 Mother’s Day, and one of the characters seems to be some weird kind of cross between Adam Sandler and Carl Spackler, Bill Murray’s character from Caddyshack. It’s not particularly scary, it’s just strange and unsatisfying. Five years from now I probably will have forgotten everything about it again. It’s still better than the Chainsaw sequel with Matthew McConaughey, though.


10/13/2015

20. The Babadook (2014) (Streaming--Netflix) - This is the second time that I’ve seen this film, and I was really hoping that it would grow on me this time. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. It’s not that I don’t like The Babadook; it’s just that I don’t have a whole lot of admiration for it. To me, it’s much more a rather obvious parable about the horrors of depression and survivor guilt than it is a horror movie. I do feel like the film is very well-acted; I just wish that it had given me a lot more fright and a lot less Freud.


10/14/2015

21. Nightbreed: The Director's Cut (1990) (Streaming--Netflix) - Clive Barker wrote and directed this adaptation of his novella Cabal, wherein a guy named Aaron Boone goes to the city of Midian and pretty much causes the destruction of the place. Midian, by the way, is located under a cemetery and is populated by all sorts of different kinds of monsters. There’s also a psychiatrist, rather poorly played by horror film directed David Cronenberg, who is trying to pin a string of murders he’s committed on Boone. Oh, and Boone is dead even before he gets to Midian…and he can turn into a monster when he feels like it…and there’s a porcupine woman…and a dog…. Nightbreed is rather silly, all things considered (one of the creatures even looks like the short-lived but creepy McDonald’s mascot Mac Tonight), and even with its monsters and gruesomeness, it still comes across as kind of an updated, creature-fied version of Gene Autry’s The Phantom Empire. Not being a fan of fantasy films, I found it to be overlong and just barely tolerable, but I do think that Cirque du Soleil could make a kick-ass show based on it.


10/15/2015

22. Screamtime (1986) (Streaming--Amazon Prime) - Direly stupid anthology film has two miscreants robbing a video store of some tapes, then watching them at a friend’s house. Each tape that they watch is a story that we have to cope with as well. The first story concerns a put-upon puppeteer and rips off the ending of Blood Feast; the second tale is the best, but the lead actress wears such humongous glasses that I forgot all about the plot and just gaped at those enormous lenses; and the third has vengeful fairies giving a thieving youth and his buddies the what-for. Yup, what they’ve got here are your basic killer Tinkerbells. The wraparound story ends with the killer from the first tale killing one of the VHS thieves, while the other is strangled to death by an arm that comes out of the TV…but you’d already figured that out, hadn’t you? If you don’t mind your stories not having any kind of dramatic tension or logic at all and/or you really, really dig large eyeglasses, then you might be able to wring a little enjoyment out of Screamtime. For all others, this is bad. Real bad.


10/16/2015

23. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014) (Streaming--Netflix) - Interesting first feature from Ana Lily Amirpour often plays like a first feature, with the occasional plotline that doesn’t go anywhere and scenes that really don’t belong in the film…but then there’s another side to the film that’s self-assured and poetic and absolutely right. The plot has to do with a vampire stalking the streets of Bad City, a mostly-deserted town in Iran, and the people that she befriends and/or kills. Amirpour seems to be a fan of Jim Jarmusch, as her film is in black and white and has the same kind of ennui about it that his early features do. Worth seeing if you’re in a meditative frame of mind.

24. Barricade (2012) (Streaming--Netflix) - A widower (played by Eric McCormack, Will of Will & Grace) takes his two kids to a mountain cabin that his wife had stayed at when she was a child, but things get weird once they arrive. Barricade doesn’t break any new ground and can be quite frustrating in spots, but when the credits started to roll I found that, for the most part, I had enjoyed it. Another in a seemingly endless stream of horror films made by WWE Studios, Barricade has one of the best jump scares that I’ve seen in years--I had to pause the movie for a few minutes because I couldn’t stop laughing at how much it scared me. I must have come at least half a foot off of the couch. Worth checking out if you’re in the mood for something different.


10/17/2015

25. The House by the Cemetery (1981) (DVD) - Another Fulci bloodbath, another film that doesn’t make a lick of sense. A family moves into an old house (by a cemetery, not that that has any bearing whatsoever on the plot) in Massachusetts and don’t live to regret it. The voice dubbing for the character of Bob is hysterical, which leads to the question: Why do I want to punch every child in an Italian horror movie in the face? If you’re a fan of Fulci, you’ll probably enjoy this; as a non-fan, I enjoyed the excessive gore, but not a lot else.

26. Curtains (1983) (Streaming--YouTube) - A film director has his star actress committed to an asylum in order to do research for a part. While locked away, she learns that he’s making the film without her and having auditions for the lead role (which was supposed to have gone to her) at his house. She escapes and shows up at his house, along with five other girls. The actresses start dying one by one, but who’s doing the killing? While there are aspects of Curtains that I like (the hag mask that the killer wears, the doll that shows up here and there, the parts of Paul Zaza’s score that sound like leftovers from Prom Night), the pacing of the film is all wrong, and I pretty much gave up pretending to care after about an hour. While the film looks nice, it’s not one that I’m going to recommend to anyone.


10/18/2015

27. Stigmata (1999) (DVD) - Patricia Arquette, an avowed atheist, starts exhibiting stigmata, so Vatican miracle debunker Gabriel Byrne is brought in to investigate. It turns out that she’s possessed…but not by a demon. Not-bad religious horror film has a good cast and a pretty good score by ex-Smashing Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan. It’s not the best movie you’ll see this year, but it’s worth a watch. If only Arquette’s character had taken about half of her candle budget and spent it on fixing some of the leaks in her apartment’s ceiling.

28. Hell Night (1981) (DVD) - I saw this back in the early ‘80s, but I didn’t catch it in the theater, so I must have seen it either on HBO or on videocassette. I remember enjoying it a lot, so I was anxious to watch it again after 30+ years. It didn’t hold up quite as well as I remembered it, but it’s still a fun watch. How can you dislike a movie that uses one of the all-time great set-ups? Four pledges have to spend the night in Garth Manor, where all the Garths were murdered twelve years ago…but two of the bodies were never found. What the pledges don’t know is that their fraternity brothers have rigged the house with speakers, two-way mirrors, and other devices to try to scare them. What neither group knows is that the two missing Garths are still alive and living in the maze of tunnels and secret rooms under the house. I find it interesting that Frank Darabont was a production assistant on the film--he was all over the place in the ‘80s.


10/19/2015

29. Dance of the Dead (2008) (DVD) - Incredibly fun zombie film is the best kind of horror comedy--the kind that takes its horror seriously and gets its comedy from the quirks of its characters. There’s nothing new going on here; we’ve seen this same setup dozens of times. However, the beauty of this film is in its details. For instance, I loved how the zombies skyrocket out of their graves and hit the ground running. It also features perhaps the worst rendition of a Pat Benatar song ever. This may not be the best first-time view of the Challenge for me, but it’s the one that I’m most likely to rewatch soon.


10/20/2015

30. What We Do in the Shadows (2014) (DVD) - Slight but amusing “documentary” about a group of flatmates in Wellington, New Zealand who are vampires. It’s nice to see a new film that sticks rather reverently to vampire lore; its take on werewolves, however, is a little less canonical. All of the leads are spot-on perfect, but writer/director Taika Waititi is especially ingratiating as a foppish dandy-turned-vampire.


10/21/2015

31. In the Mouth of Madness (1994) (Streaming--Google Drive [Alyxstarr's link]) - John Carpenter does Lovecraft and the results are…meh. I’ve never been a fan of H.P. Lovecraft (I find most of his stuff, rather than being horrific, to be silly), but a lot of horror fans love him. John Carpenter must be one of those fans. He flirted with some Lovecraftian imagery in The Thing, but here he goes into full-blown Yog-Sothoth mode. I liked the idea of the Mobius-strip logic of the lead character in the film being the main character in a book that the film character reads, but, overall, even though the film was crawling with misshapen creatures, I found it to be neither scary nor particularly good.


10/22/2015

32. Terror in the Aisles (1984) (Blu-ray) - Adequate time-waster plays like the horror movie equivalent of That’s Entertainment, in that the film strings together a bunch of the scariest moments from (according to the end credits) sixty-two films while celebrity narrators (in this case, Donald Pleasance and Nancy Allen) babble on about how we all experience fear and we all have to leave the theater at some point and blah blah blah. There’re a bunch of clips that aren’t from horror movies at all, and virtually all of the music from the film clips has been rescored, but it’s still kind of fun playing “name that movie” with the scenes that are shown.


10/23/2015

33. House of Wax (1953) (Blu-ray 3D) - This remake of 1933’s Mystery of the Wax Museum nominally stars Vincent Price, but the real star is the outstanding 3D effects. There’s a remarkable spatial depth to the film, but every once in a while director Andre de Toth also throws in a shot where something gets shoved or thrown right in the viewer’s face. Having never seen the film in a flat version, I can’t vouch for its entertainment value without the 3D, but with it, it’s one of the most solidly entertaining films that I’ve seen in a while…and one of the best 3D features ever.

34. Man Made Monster (1941) (DVD) - Lon Chaney, Jr. stars as a guy who has a high tolerance for electrical shocks, which makes him the perfect candidate for mad scientist Lionel Atwill’s experiments in creating a race of electrified men. This might be the perfect Golden Age Universal horror film to introduce kids to monster movies; I loved it as a kid because it had a sympathetic “monster” in Chaney, a cute dog that did tricks, and nifty special effects. It’s still fun after almost seventy-five years.


10/24/2015

35. The Terror (1963) (Blu-ray) - Infamous mess of a film started with Roger Corman finishing up The Raven three days early, so he got Boris Karloff, Sandra Knight, Jack Nicholson, and Dick Miller to shoot some disjointed scenes on the The Raven’s sets, figuring that he could build a film around them later. And, to his credit, he did. What he never had, though, was a complete script from which to work. Also, after his three days with the cast, he didn’t have a whole lot of time to devote to the film either, so he piecemealed the rest of the film together. When Monte Hellman had a few days, Corman got him to take a few of the actors and shoot; when Francis Ford Coppola had some time, he took a crack at it, and so on, through a total of five directors and countless script changes. That it even ever came together in a releasable form is simply amazing. The Terror isn’t very good, but it has a few points of interest, such as the hawk attack and the finale that was kinda/sorta lifted from Tales of Terror. (In a sort of weird replay of fate, a few years later Karloff owed Corman a few days’ work, so Corman gave Peter Bogdanovich Karloff and twenty minutes of The Terror to craft a new movie. The result was Targets, Bogdanovich’s first feature which featured Karloff’s last great role.)

36. Frankenstein 1970 (1958) (DVD) - Boris Karloff plays the last descendant of the Frankensteins. He needs money for some sort of new atomic machine, so he rents out his castle and grounds to a TV crew. Of course, he’s keeping up family traditions again in a sub-basement that he’s tricked out with the latest gadgetry. The first half of the film moves painfully slowly, but once Herr Baron Frankenstein starts killing off the TV cast and crew to provide parts for his creature, the film becomes much more interesting. Horror films of the late 1950s are really fascinating to me because of their experimentation with gore. The Black Sleep had a few seconds of fairly icky brain surgery, and Frankenstein 1970 has a human heart being palpated by Dr. Frankenstein in the few brief seconds it spends between coming out of one body and being put into another. There’re also a couple of eyes that are kept in a jar and get dropped on the floor, perhaps in a nod to the previous year’s Curse of Frankenstein. Frankenstein 1970 is worth watching on a slow evening, but don’t expect too much from it. The “1970” part of the title is never explained.


10/25/2015

37. Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) (DVD) - Every once in a while I run up against a classic that has been discussed so much that I can’t really find anything new to say. So it is with this film. It’s perfect family viewing for this time of year, but only the very youngest kids will actually be scared by it. Every time that I see it I find something new to chuckle over; this time Lou’s line as he’s about to enter McDougal’s House of Horrors to deliver the crates containing the monsters cracked me up--he takes one look into the House of Horrors, turns to Bud, and says in all seriousness, “I’m not gonna like this.” Man, but I love this film.

38. Out of the Dark (2014) (Streaming--Netflix) - Julia Stiles, her husband, and their daughter relocate to a small town in Colombia where her father is the grand poobah of a large company. While there, they discover that their house is haunted by the ghosts of some children who are now after their daughter. Middling “thriller” starts out well enough, but it ends up being rather preachy and not at all scary. Unless you’re really hurting to watch a ghost movie that you haven’t seen yet, I recommend skipping this one.

39. Here Comes the Devil (2012) (Streaming--Netflix) - I missed this when it was a subset film last year because I had to bail out on the Challenge with about three days left in it. I’m now sorry that I missed it. Here Comes the Devil is, so far, the highlight of this year’s Challenge for me. The setup is fairly simple--a family that’s out for the day stops at a gas station near a boulder-strewn hill. The kids ask to climb the hill, and Mom and Dad agree. When the kids don’t come back after a few hours, the police are called. The next day, the kids show back up, but something seems to be a little off about them. And there’s that rumor that the hill that they visited is cursed…. Every time that I thought that I had the plot figured out, writer/director Adrián García Bogliano threw me a curve ball, so that right up until the very end I was kept guessing. This is the type of film that the average viewer might not like, but horror fans should eat it up with a spoon. Not to be missed.


10/26/2015

40. Next of Kin (1982) (Streaming--YouTube) - Someone is murdering people at the nursing home that Linda has inherited from her mother, but who is the killer? Okay film has large swatches of tedium broken up by some nice giallo-inspired moments (including, in spots, a soundtrack and roaming camera that recall Dario Argento’s Tenebrae) and some arty, pretentious-but-still-fun non-sequitur moments. The nominal male hero of the film later turned up as the killer in the Wolf Creek films.


10/27/2015

41. Black Sheep (2006) (DVD) - When Henry goes home to sell his stake in the family sheep farm to his brother, he finds that his brother has been financing a lab to create genetic modifications to the animals. Unfortunately, at the exact time that he arrives, the meddling of some activists causes a bad experiment to get loose, and soon all 50,000 of the sheep on the farm turn carnivorous. As if that’s not bad enough, a sheep bite can cause a human to turn into a weresheep, and soon Henry and the remaining humans are fighting to survive the onslaught of mutant mutton. Disposable but fun film from New Zealand has some effective gore courtesy of the guys at WETA, and some funny bits and quite a few scares from writer/director Jonathan King. Black Sheep takes a while to get started, but once it gets cranked up, it's a blast.


10/28/2015

42. Stir of Echoes (1999) (Blu-ray) - About fifteen years ago, I ran into a friend from high school in the electronics section of Walmart. We spent a few minutes catching up, but since we were standing in the movie aisle, our conversation eventually turned to what films we had seen lately and which ones were good. He asked me which movie I had liked better: The Sixth Sense or Stir of Echoes. At the time, I replied that I thought that The Sixth Sense was the better film. Tonight, after watching Stir of Echoes for probably the third or fourth time, I’m not so sure. David Koepp’s adaptation of Richard Matheson’s novel is a model of economic storytelling; there doesn’t seem to be a wasted frame in the film. The film is so packed with details that it practically requires repeated viewings to catch all the clues, both visual and aural, that Koepp has layered into the film. It’s almost a bonus that the film is so well-acted, engrossing, and, at least in its first half, scary. I think that, as more time goes by, Stir of Echoes will be seen as one of the great horror films from the turn of the century.


10/29/2015

43. Pet Sematary (1989) (DVD) - Out of all of Stephen King’s books, Pet Sematary scared me the most. I found it to be unremittingly grim and flat-out frightening. When the movie came out, I was amped up and ready to be scared witless. The film, unfortunately, didn’t live up to my expectations. In fact, it may be the unintentionally funniest King adaptation of them all… and there’re a lot of bad King adaptations out there. How could such great source material lead to a movie as bad as this one? I think that the main culprit was Stephen King himself: he wrote the screenplay for the film, and it’s awful. His decision to turn the character of Victor Pascow into a sort of undead Greek chorus wasn’t the best of ideas, and his dialogue reeks of what a former graduate school classmate of mine liked to call “exposition with a blunt object.” King doesn’t get all the blame, though: Mary Lambert, the director, stages scenes with all the sledgehammer subtlety that she showed in her music video days, while the editors apparently used rusty garden tools to cut the film. Elliot Goldenthal’s score sounds like huge swatches of it were lifted from Lalo Schifrin’s score for The Amityville Horror. And then there are the actors. Fred Gwynne is the only actor to come out of this debacle nearly unscathed, although he does tend to bite at the scenery occasionally…but the rest of the cast is uniformly awful. Denise Crosby acts like she signed on to be in a drama about domestic violence. Blaze Berdahl as Ellie, the daughter, gives a one-note performance, and that note is LOUD. But the worst performance in the film belongs to Dale Midriff...er, Midkiff, whose anguished scream of “NOOOOOOOOOOO” after a truck makes roadkill out of one of his family members made me laugh long enough to have to pause the DVD to regain my composure. I think that it’s about time to remake this one. Maybe this time they’ll get it right.


10/30/2015

44. Idle Hands (1999) (DVD) - Goofy (but funny and ingratiating, as well) tale of Anton Tobias, a teenage slacker whose right hand gets possessed by a demon that looks for the laziest person that it can find. Once the demon possesses the hand, it kills as many people as it can before finally dragging someone close to its host down to hell. At least, that’s what the Druid priestess that’s chasing the demon would have us believe. Fun cast has a blast with this dumb premise, but the results are often smarter than you’d think. Seth Green and Elden Henson easily steal the movie as a couple of Anton’s stoner friends.

45. 6 Films to Keep You Awake: To Let (2006) (DVD) - A guy and his pregnant girlfriend go to look at an apartment that he saw an ad for, but they soon live to regret it when they find out that the landlord is crazy and intent upon never letting them out of the apartment building. So-so film from usually reliable Spanish director Jaume Balaguero seems overlong at 69 minutes, and there’s a lot of shakycam footage thrown into the film for absolutely no reason. It’s not awful, but Balaguero has proven that he can do far, far better ([rec], The Nameless).


10/31/2015: Halloween

46. The Midnight Hour (1985) (Streaming--YouTube) - If you were to put as many horror tropes as you could into a blender (making sure to add in a double-fistful of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”) and hit “puree,” this is probably what you’d get. This is lowest common denominator filmmaking, made by a TV network to appeal to as many different demographics as possible. As such, it’s neither very good nor awful, neither scary nor funny; it’s just there. I can see where some people might think that this is fun, but excepting the music, I didn’t find much to like here. Still, I didn’t entirely dislike it either, because it DOES have a little bit of everything that’s Halloween-themed in it. With the sound turned down, it would make a perfect background video to have on at a Halloween party; with the sound turned up, it’s a barely adequate time-waster.

47. Mother of Tears (2007) (DVD) - Easily the least of the “Three Mothers” trilogy, Dario Argento’s long-awaited film isn’t as terrible as some would have us believe. In a nutshell: Sarah Mandy (Asia Argento) witnesses a co-worker’s murder after they open a box (containing a knife, three ugly knick-knacks, and a ratty t-shirt) that mysteriously showed up at their museum. From that point on, Sarah is thrust headfirst into an ever-deepening well of witches, murder, and psychic visions from her dead mother. Even bloodier than the other entries in the trilogy, Mother of Tears will probably prove unwatchable for those with a strong aversion to scenes depicting eye trauma, as it seems like every other kill involves some violence to the victims’ eyes. As is the case with the other two films, dream logic dominates the proceedings, so don’t expend a lot of energy trying to logically connect the happenings in the film. Just let it roll over you, and you’ll probably have a pretty good time.

I specify viewing source and denotes first time viewing.



October 1st
01. Hobgoblins (Rick Sloane, 1988) Theme Night: Bigfoots, Yetis & Tiny Terrors
Pass the Popcorn
Kicked off the horror marathon with another IMDb bottom 100 craptacular gem. Epic mano-a-mano rake fights and lots of big, beautiful eighties hair. And hey, a sex hotline where the girl on the other end is actually hot. I'd love to squeeze in the belated 2009 sequel before the day (or challenge) ends. 4.8/10

October 2nd
02. Motel Hell (Kevin Connor, 1980) Theme Night: You'll Never Check Out!
DVD
Wildly funny and strikingly dark cult hit. I love the way the Deputy cheats the local drive-in by parking over a hill and using binoculars to see the screen and his CB to tune in the audio. The chainsaw duel finale is staged better than anything in the TCM saga. 7.4/10

October 3rd
03. To the Devil a Daughter (Peter Sykes, 1976) Theme Night: R.I.P. Sir Christopher Lee
Cinemageddon
Hammer time! This was apparently the studio's swan song from their golden era. Christopher Lee is suitably maniacal as a cult leader with a prowess for the uncanny and Nastassja Kinski is equally perfect as his comely muse. Her brief full frontal is truly the best of the Devil's work. Hail Satan, and God bless that girl. 7.8/10



October 4th
04. Bad Ronald (Buzz Kulik, 1974) Theme Night: Made-for-TV Horror Movies & Horror Mini-Series Subset Film Cinemageddon
The incident that leads Ronald to end up hiding in the house is shocking, uncompromising and probably something that wouldn't be shown on television today. At least not as casually. Ronald has a thing for young blonde princesses, and that ultimately leads to his downfall. Quick and engaging, it's another solid MOW from the golden age of TV movies. 7.6/10

October 5th
05. Fright Night 2: New Blood (Eduardo Rodriguez, 2013) Theme Night: LGBT Horrors
YTS
A few sexy vamp moments and occasional nudity made this at least diverting at times, but it pales dismally compared to the original Fright Night 2, which was one of the better horror sequels of its day. I did the use of some of the beautiful Romanian locations in addition to the lovely ladies. 5.8/10

October 6th
06. A Christmas Horror Story (Grant Harvey-Steven Hoban-Brett Sullivan, 2015) Theme Night: Blood and Snow
Pass the Popcorn
Better watch out! Wildly entertaining Canadian horror anthology brought out some Yuletide cheer in me. I think all the stories worked, but the standouts were genuinely cool and offered nice twists on familiar holiday yarns. For some reason, Christmas and horror just mix and this one had lots of blood and snow. Just like The Nightmare Before Christmas and Trick 'r Treat, this should quickly become a new holiday horror favorite. 7.9/10

October 7th
07. John Carpenter's Village of the Damned (John Carpenter, 1995) Theme Night: Based on Horror Novels
Kickass Torrents
One from Carpenter's more lukewarm period in the nineties. Something about the film doesn't quite grab you in the way his best work does. Although, I still appreciated the master's elegant compositions and his depictions of telepathically orchestrated violence by the horrible Hamwich children. I also found some humor in the disgruntled and reluctant parents as they come to terms with how shitty parenthood can be. What's up with Michael Paré's quick exit? I also wanted more of the stunning Meredith Salenger. 6.8/10

October 8th
08. The Editor (Adam Brooks-Matthew Kennedy, 2015) Theme Night: Eyes of Death
Blu-ray
More sexy and stylish than Astron-6's previous feature effort. This giallo homage/parody just isn't as fun as watching the real thing. There are plenty of nods to Fulci, Bava, and Argento that are neat for aficionados to spot, but giallo virgins will be lost. The most impressive thing about the Raven Banner edition blu-ray is the stellar packaging and cool reversible artwork. 5.6/10

October 9th
09. Fear the Walking Dead: The Complete First Season (Adam Davidson-Kari Skogland-Stefan Schwartz, 2015) Theme Night: Zombies HD-Bits
I haven't really much of AMC's The Walking Dead, so I decided to check out this short season to their spin-off. I hope these guys cut a fat check to George Romero. There's nothing they don't shamelessly lift from him. Nothing new in Zombietown as the bland and dreary characters trudge along to a wet fart of a finale that doesn't exactly leave me begging for season two. 5/10

October 10th
10. The Fan (Eckhart Schmidt, 1982) Theme Night: The European Passport to Terror
Blu-ray
Slow build to a shockingly cool climax. This one should make any jaded rock star think twice about plucking a random groupie for a sex getaway. 7.3/10

October 11th
11. Invitation to Hell (Wes Craven, 1984) Theme Night: R.I.P. Wes Craven
Cinemageddon
One of master filmmaker Wes Craven's more lukewarm television movies, but Emmy queen Susan Lucci is still a knockout with her shocking eighties hair and crazy wardrobe. 5.7/10

12. Knock Knock (Eli Roth, 2015)Pass the Popcorn
Keanu Reeves makes the tragic mistake of answering the door when a pair of sexy and devious home wreckers show up during a rainstorm to deliver both tricks and treats. Bad boy of horror Eli Roth's twisted update of the seventies thriller Death Game. Ana de Armas is a provocative tease and there are boobs on glass in this! 8.3/10


October 12th
13. The Ambulance (Larry Cohen, 1990) Theme Night: Chronological Horror Years Faceoff: 1965 (Gold) vs. 1990 (Silver)
Pass the Popcorn
Had a great time watching Eric Roberts, James Earl Jones, and Red Buttons chew scenery in this one. Stan Lee has a cameo because Roberts' character is an artist for Marvel Comics. Great dialogue and remarkable stuntwork. This Larry Cohen gem was a real treat of a challenge watch. 7.9/10

October 13th
14. Cellar Dweller (John Carl Buechler, 1989) Theme Night: Better Crypts & Mortuaries: Attics & Basements Edition
DVD
The creature effects aren't nearly as impressive as the comic book illustrations used in the film, which are a decent tribute to EC Comic art. Silly and lowbrow schlock from Empire Pictures. 2.6/10

October 14th
15. Last Shift (Anthony DiBlasi, 2014) Theme Night: Police Stations
YTS
Nicely crafted supernatural horror film with lots of foreboding atmosphere about a lovely young rookie cop and her first night working alone in an empty police station. Director DiBlasi uses his limitations to great effect and this one is worth staying up for. 7.8/10

October 15th
16. Terror Tract (Lance W. Dreesen-Clint Hutchison, 2001) Theme Night: Horror Anthologies
Cinemageddon
This overlooked horror anthology film really delivers a great variety of stories that should appeal to any Tales from the Crypt fans. We get revenge from the undead, killer animals, a masked slasher, and an early appearance by Bryan Cranston. A startling scene in the last story evokes DePalma's Dressed to Kill, while the wraparound piece features John Ritter as a real estate agent who offers full disclosure on the twisted and sordid history of the neighborhood properties. 7.5/10

October 16th
17. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (Ana Lily Amirpour, 2014) Theme Night: Crazy Love Subset Film Pass the Popcorn
It's got better black and white cinematography than last year's Oscar nominee Ida (which also features a cloaked female lead), and there is some nice brooding atmosphere and dark humor. Overall, though, I found this somewhat slow and pretentious. An indie arthouse darling with a mere spattering of horror. 5.4/10

18. The Green Inferno (Eli Roth, 2015)Pass the Popcorn
Another strong horror effort from Eli Roth that is also a cool homage to the Italian cannibal film craze. Roth's Chilean wife Lorenza Izzo is certainly demonstrating her range and versatility. Stay for the end credits for a neat little easter egg scene and a list of the films that influenced this. 8.4/10


October 17th
19. Hider in the House (Matthew Patrick, 1991) Theme Night: 1980's Video Companies Spotlight: Vestron Video
Cinemageddon
It's like the more grown-up version of Bad Ronald. This was one of Vestron Pictures last films and was intended for theatrical release, but wound up going direct to video. It's perfect for today's theme and it's also a great interloper horror film from the early nineties when that subgenre was at its peak. Gary Busey hadn't gone full Busey yet, and this is a credible, creepy and sadly effecting performance of a broken man. 7.1/10

October 18th
20. The Vatican Tapes (Mark Neveldine, 2015) Theme Night: Chapels of Horror
YTS
Entertaining possession flick by one half of the Neveldine/Taylor directing team. Still has some of duo's trademark energy and visual punch, but the PG-13 rating keeps things a bit too safe for seasoned horror fans like me. 6.8/10

October 19th
21. Night School (Kenneth Hughes, 2015) Theme Night: School's Out...Forever
YTS
An alluring Rachel Ward stars in this urban slasher about a deranged killer who likes to behead beautiful co-eds. The mystery element is kind of obvious, but this is a real hoot. 8.3/10

October 20th
22. Tales From the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood (Gilbert Adler, 1996) Theme Night: Vampires and Post-Apocalyptic Horror Commentary Pass the Popcorn
I've always enjoyed Dennis Miller in this film with his quick jabs and dry wit, but according to the commentary and the special features, he was a total asshat to work with. I love candid tales about movie fiascoes, so please give this Scream Factory release a go. 7.9/10

October 21st
23. Suburban Gothic (Richard Bates Jr., 2015) Theme Night: Bookstores and Libraries
YTS
Ray Wise is the real reason to watch this. He's hilarious as a bigoted high school coach and father of the effete Mather Gray Gubler. Pretty funny horror comedy, but really light on scare potential. A creepier ghost element would have helped lots. 6.4/10

October 22nd
24. The Blob (Chuck Russell, 1988) Theme Night: Theaters of Blood Commentary Blu-ray
Commentary was a bit dry and the moderator talked way too much in comparison to the film's director Chuck Russell. There were a few technical tidbits along the way, but nothing that exciting. This is one of my favorite remakes and Shawnee Smith has never been cuter. This score is for the commentary, not the movie itself. 7.3/10


October 23rd
25. As Above, So Below (John Erick Dowdle, 2014) Theme Night: Free Admission: Enter at Your Own Risk
TMN On Demand
The premise of investigating mysteries lurking in the catacombs beneath the streets had great potential. Unfortunately, this is one of the more mediocre found footage films due to its excessive shaky cam and vapid characters. Check out the director's earlier film The Poughkeepsie Tapes for a better horror experience. 4.9/10

October 24th
26. Deranged (Jeff Gillen-Alan Ormsby, 1974) Theme Night: Drive-In Double Features: Bloody Cult Flix!
Blu-ray
A ghoulish bit or rural horror and one of the best screen interpretations of Ed Gein's notorious crimes. Roberts Blossom is superb and I'm glad to finally see him in this leading role. I've always been fond of his character work, particularly his bit in John Carpenter's Christine. I was surprised to learn that this was shot in Ontario and I'm pretty certain I heard Stompin' Tom on the soundtrack. 7.8/10

October 25th
27. Cast a Deadly Spell (Martin Campbell, 1991) Theme Night: Occult Detectives
Crave TV
Clever and funny HBO genre mash-up of Lovecraftian horror and classic film noir. Fred Ward just has the perfect face for a forties detective who chooses not to participate in the magic fad that's swept Los Angeles. 8.4/10

28. Witch Hunt (Paul Schrader, 1994) Theme Night: Occult Detectives Crave TV
Paul Schrader's follow-up to Cast a Deadly Spell isn't as witty or charming as the first but it still features some great practical magic. I liked Dennis Hopper in the role, but he doesn't fit those gumshoes the way Fred Ward did. These occult detective films make me want to invest some time in series like Kolchak and Angel sometime over the winter. 6.1/10

October 26th
29. Extrasensorial (Blood Link) (Albert D. Martino, 1982) Theme Night: Slashers / Giallos / Serial Killers
Cinemageddon
This is so much more entertaining than Cronenberg's Dead Ringers and the split screen twin effects are excellent and ahead of their time. I learned from a Larry Cohen commentary that Michael Moriarty famously dislikes working with other actors and prefers to imagine them in the space. He must have enjoyed getting this dual role. Great looking women and plenty of tits. 8.2/10

30. Confessions of a Serial Killer (Mark Blair, 1985) Theme Night: Slashers / Giallos / Serial Killers Cinemageddon
Based on the Henry Lee Lucas story, this film really caught me by surprise. Down and dirty when it needs to be, and full of surprises and twists that never defy logic and remain authentic. Doesn't glorify the killers, but keeps them interesting. I'm glad to have found an uncut copy of the VHS version online. This film deserves the serious attention that John McNaughton's film has always had and I would love to see one of the horror boutique labels release a definite special edition. 8.9/10

October 27th
31. Wolfen (Michael Wadleigh, 1981) Theme Night: Werewolves / Were-Creatures On A Full Moon
Cinemageddon
The cast is really fun to watch in this and there's some great banter between the NYC detectives played by Albert Finney and Gregory Hines. A respectable adaptation of controversial author Whitley Strieber's first successful novel. Steadicam inventor Garrett Brown gets a workout on this one with lots of shots from the shape-shifter's POV. 6.4/10

October 28th
32. Annabelle (John R. Leonetti, 2014) Theme Night: Supernatural & Quiet/Soft
TMN On Demand
I prefer this prequel to the original film and found more to enjoy in the early seventies details and the creepy nightmarish sequences that kept the female heroine in constant peril. Some good old-fashioned scares to be had. The doll itself is so ugly that I can't imagine anyone wanting to own it, let alone receive it as a gift. 7.4/10

33. Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (Gregory Plotkin, 2015) Theme Night: Supernatural & Quiet/Soft Cinema
It's becoming more difficult to distinguish between the legitatime Paranormal Activity series and its parodies. I kind of like that. The 3D here is a blatant con and only pops up during certain segments. The final overblown sequence is worth the glasses, though, for some projectile vomit action that's comin' at ya! 6.6/10

October 29th
34. The Rats (John Lafia, 2002) Theme Night: Bats / Cats / & Rats
Cinemageddon
Rats usually make for better horror cinema than this. I love Stephen King's Graveyard Shift, Of Unknown Origin, Willard, and Deadly Eyes and would consider any of those to be great Halloween viewing. There are a few cool rat attacks here, like the one in a public swimming pool where we witness the aquatic prowess of hordes of swimming rodents. 3.3/10

35. Hide and Seek (Gregory Plotkin, 2005) Theme Night: Bats / Cats / & Rats Pass the Popcorn
Great performances by Dakota Fanning and Robert DeNiro. Nice to toss in a glossier, more professional Hollywood production. Had me second guessing myself a couple of times as we headed toward the twisty and satisfying final moments. 8.3/10

October 30th
36. The Last Witch Hunter (Breck Eisner, 2015) Theme Night: Devil's Night
Cinema
Vin Diesel referring to Michael Caine as "kid" was probably the most unsettling thing about this rather pedestrian effort. 4.2/10

37. The First Power (Robert Resnikoff, 1990) Theme Night: Devil's Night Cinemageddon
A body-hopping psycho torments Lou Diamond Phillips in a film wildly reminiscent of Wes Craven's Shocker, with plenty of the ominous overtones that would become standard fare for detective thrillers of the nineties. I still haven't seen Fallen with Denzel Washington, which employs a similar technique. 5.8/10

October 31st
38. Tales of Halloween (Various, 2015) Theme Night: Halloween
Kickass Torrents
Along with A Christmas Horror Story, one of the best Horror-themed anthologies of the past few years, and it's brand new. Superior to Trick 'r Treat in many ways, but I'm confident most won't agree. For ten stories, this was pretty fucking consistent and if you love creative Halloween decor and environments, get ready to be impressed. Comedy, dark humor, and a plethora of genre cameos. A hoot to boot, and I'm glad I saved it for today. Since I'm often getting messages about what to toss on for Halloween parties, I recommend this to seasonal celebrators. 8.4/10

Re: The 11th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa



My Personal October Horror Movie Challenge History: 2007 - 100; 2008 - 50; 2009 - 71; 2010 - 78; 2011 - 52; 2012 - 52; 2013 - 74; 2014 - 67

2015 Goal - I always aim for 100, even though it's not always realistic. At times, it depends on how many Cardinals playoff games there are.

October 1 (and dusk the night before)
1. Carnival of Souls (1962) ☼ [Streaming] - Nice way to start the challenge. I realize I haven't seen a large number of older horror films. I need to correct that.
2. Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (Producer's Cut) (1995) ☼ [BD] - Counting as a first time watch since I had never seen this version. I should add, I found it to be much better, in at least things made a little more sense than the release I had seen countless times before.
3. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) [BD] - The terror remains intense no matter how many times I've seen this one.
4. You're Next (2011) [BD] - Discovered this one last year and have been anxious to check it out again ever since. Lots of fun.
5. The Night Stalker (1972) ☼ [DVD] - Enjoyable performance from Darren McGavin, who I recognized as The Christmas Story dad.
6. The Twilight Zone - Mr. Dingle, the Strong / Static / The Prime Mover / Long Distance Call (1961) [BD] - Always appreciate familiar faces that pop up in these episodes.

October 2
7. A Lonely Place to Die (2011) [BD] - Borderline horror film that I viewed a couple of years ago. The BD I picked up looks really good.
8. Quarantine (2008) ☼ [BD] - I've heard that this one is slightly inferior to [REC], which makes me really want to get to that one soon since this film is solid.
9. Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984) [DVR] - I didn't intend to watch this. I had recorded the 3rd film in this series months ago, since I hadn't seen it in forever and wanted to remind myself how bad it was. When I went to watch, it was instead the original and once it started I was hooked.
10. The Night Strangler (1973) ☼ [DVD] - The 2nd film featuring the character Carl Kolchak. Had to go look it up to see how many more there might be.
11. Severance (2006) [DVD] - Kept thinking this seems somewhat familiar. Turns out I watched it in the 2010 challenge. Wasn't greatly impressed then and things haven't changed.

October 3
12. Dark Skies (2013) ☼ [DVR] - Well-done, creepy film with excellent performances by everyone.
13. The Twilight Zone - A Hundred Years Over the Rim / The Rip Van Winkle Caper / The Silence / Shadow Play (1961) [BD] - The Silence was my favorite episode among this foursome.
14. Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006) [DVR] - 2nd time watch. Liked it more this time around.
15. The Twilight Zone - The Mind and the Matter / Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up? / The Obsolete Man / Two (1961) [BD] - The thought comes to mind that this show would have been so unique when it initially aired.

October 4
16. Mine Games (2012) ☼ [DVR] - Strange film. The best part of the movie may have been that the female actresses were nice to look at, which might be enough for some folks, but it's not enough for me to recommend it.
17. The Twilight Zone - The Arrival / The Shelter / The Passerby / A Game of Pool (1961) ☼ [BD] - The pool game between Winters/Klugman was epic.
18. The Twilight Zone - The Mirror / The Grave / It's a Good Life / Deaths-Head Revisited (1961) ☼ [BD] - Child actor Billy Mumy appeared as a character late in season 2 and here again early in season 3. The episode was "It's a Good Life" and was recreated as a segment in the Twilight Zone movie.

October 5
19. I Spit on Your Grave (1978) ☼ [DVR] - The violence was so brutal that it was a struggle to get through it.
20. Friday the 13th: The Series - The Inheritance / The Poison Pen (1987) ☼ [DVD] - Yes, I was one of those young people who remember the disappointment that Jason wasn't in the television show.
21. Halloween: The Inside Story (2010) [DVR] - I enjoy everything related to the Halloween films, this documentary is no exception.
22. Piranha (2010) [BD] - One of my favorite opening scenes in any horror film.

October 6
23. Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film (2006) [DVR] - A well done documentary with lots of good clips and interviews from horror icons during the peak of the slaher films.BD
24. Ravenous (1999) ☼ [DVR] - Seems like it took a while for it to get going. The blood really flowed after that.
25. Re-Animator (1985) ☼ [DVR] - Being the 80s horror aficionado that I am, it's a little surprising that I've not watched this one already.

October 7
26. I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) [BD] - Lots of well-known names in this one. I like the backdrop here, set near the Carolina coast.
27. Secret Window (2004) [BD] - This is one of those borderline horror films that leans more to thriller status. Johnny Depp does creepy well.
28. Resident Evil (2002) [DVD] - May have commented before about this, but I love the laser beam in the corridor scene.
29. Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) ☼ [DVD] - Lots more action in the sequel.

October 8
30. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (1998) [BD] - This sequel is bad. The only positive thing I can say about it is it's not as bad the next sequel in this series, which I will avoid at all costs.
31. The Cabin in the Woods (2011) [BD] - I find myself noticing new details about this film with every viewing.
32. Resident Evil: Extinction (2007) ☼ [DVD] - So far, the sequels have managed to be enjoyable.

October 9
33. Wolf (1994) ☼ [BD] - I was surprised to see a pre-Friends David Schwimmer pop up in this one.
34. House at the End of the Street (2012) ☼ [BD] - Perhaps a bit by-the-numbers, but still an effective thriller.
35. Triangle (2009) ☼ [DVR] - My DVD Profiler lists it as horror. A new discovery and one that I intend to come back to in the future.

October 10
36. Friday the 13th: The Series - Cupid's Quiver / A Cup of Time (1987) ☼ [DVD] - The downside to going through this show--inconsistency. Some episodes are good, others not-so-much.
37. The Twilight Zone - The Midnight Sun / Still Valley / The Jungle / Once Upon a Time (1961) ☼ [BD] - My young son watched some of these with me. He remarked during one episode, "Strange things are happening to that guy". I explained that was the plot for every episode of this show.

October 11
38. Stoker (2013) [BD] - Another borderline horror film--the rotten tomatoes site lists it as such. I was giving this one a 2nd chance and like it a little more this time.
39. The Possession (2012) ☼ [BD] - This is not the type of film I'd normally enjoy, but I found it worth watching. Great performances all around, especially from the younger daughter.

October 12
40. It Follows (2014) ☼ [DVD-Redbox] - I had heard the praise for this movie. I felt it lived up to the acclaim.
41. Sinister (2012) ☼ [BD] - Knock on wood, I've done really well with my first time viewings. This was another that was worthy of a watch.
42. The Twilight Zone - Five Characters in Search of an Exit / A Quality of Mercy / Nothing in the Dark / One More Pallbearer (1962) ☼ [BD] - I'm about halfway through the complete TZ series on BD. I'm a little overwhelmed at the set because of the massive amounts of bonus material that I'm interested in, but haven't checked out.

October 13
43. Frankenstein (1994) [BD] - An interesting personal fact about this movie. I first watched it while substitute teaching a high school English class many years ago.
44. The Twilight Zone - Dead Man's Shoes / The Hunt / Showdown with Rance McGrew / Kick the Can (1962) ☼ [BD] - Kick the Can is a classic episode, another one used in the TZ film.
45. 100 Years of Horror: Maniacs (1996) ☼ [Streaming] - [Wild Card] - Checked out this show and decided 1 episode was enough

October 14
46. Dracula (1992) [BD] - This is one of those movies that I think is just average. I do recognize that contains several legendary actors at the top of their game.
47. The House on Sorority Row (1983) ☼ [Streaming] - It always seems rare when I find an 80s "classic" that I somehow overlooked.
48. Dexter - Are You...? / Sunshine and Frosty Swirl (2012) ☼ [BD] - Violating one of my usual rules. If I decide to check out a show, I like to begin at the beginning. Instead, I'm starting to see this one in season 7. Only because I've placed a priority on my unwatched BD pile and this season of the show sits on top.

October 15
49. Dexter - Buck the System / Run (2012) ☼ [BD] - I should add that the show is good and I do plan to go back to the beginning in the near future.
50. Friday the 13th: The Series - Hellowe'en / The Great Montarro (1987) ☼ [DVD] - Finding this show to be merely ok. I think I like anthology shows a little better (different stories/characters).
51. The Ring (2002) ☼ [DVD] - Creepy film. I'll be checking out the sequel and Japanese films soon.
52. The Twilight Zone - A Piano in the House / The Last Rites of Jeff Myrtlebank / To Serve Man / The Fugitive (1962) ☼ [BD] - Another interesting part of this set is the advertisements at the end of each episode.

October 16
53. Jaws: The Inside Story (2010) [DVR] - As good and informative as the first time I watched it. Jaws continues to rank near the top of all-time favorites list.

October 17
54. Friday the 13th: The Series - Doctor Jack / Shadow Boxer (1987) ☼ [DVD] - This show is suffering in that the other television shows I'm currently watching are far superior to this one.

October 18
55. Dexter - Swim Deep / Do the Wrong Thing (2012) ☼ [BD] - I could see where it would be easy to marathon a show like this.

October 19
56. Maggie (2015) ☼ [BD-Redbox] - A little slow for my taste.
57. The Ring Two (2005) ☼ [DVD] - Decent sequel. While watching, I came to realize that I've liked Naomi Watts in just about everything I've seen her in.
58. Dexter - Chemistry / Argentina (2012) ☼ [BD] - Man, I'm kicking myself for not checking out this show sooner.
59. Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem (2015) ☼ [DVD] [Wild Card] - Animated feature with Halloween being a central theme.
60. The Twilight Zone - Little Girl Lost / Person or Persons Unknown / The Little People / Four O'Clock (1962) ☼ [BD] - The Little Girl Lost is interesting. Seems as if part of the movie Poltergeist might have been based on it (the search of a missing girl within her home).

October 20
61. Unfriended (2014) ☼ [DVD-Redbox] - Probably a runaway winner in the worst film I will watch for the challenge. I enjoy social media and use it a great deal myself. But I disliked the format of this movie from the very beginning and it was annoying the entire time.
62. What We Do in the Shadows (2014) ☼ [DVD-Redbox] - Some decent parts, but not as good as I had hoped it would be. I'm also wondering if my criticisms are greater as the month goes on.
63. Dexter - Helter Skelter / The Dark... Whatever (2012) ☼ [BD] - The writing for this series is really sharp.
64. The Twilight Zone - Hocus-Pocus and Frisby / The Trade-ins / The Gift / The Dummy (1962) ☼ [BD] - The last of these about a ventriloquist and dummy, both of which are usually creepy.

October 21
65. The Twilight Zone - Young Man's Fancy / I Sing the Body Electric / Cavender is Coming / The Changing of the Guard (1962) ☼ [BD] - I frequently enjoy seeing stars appearing in TZ roles. In this case, Carol Burnett and Donald Pleasance show up in the last 2 episodes of the 3rd season.

October 22
66. The Silence of the Lambs: Inside Story (2010) ☼ [DVR] - Another documentary of one of my favorite films. Learned several new things about the classic movie.
67. I Spit on Your Grave III (2015) ☼ [DVD-Redbox] - Too many flashbacks and daydreaming sequences. Hard enough to watch as it is.
68. The Exorcist (1973) ☼ [DVD] - Funny that the DVD case indicated I was watching the version I've never seen. The same could be said for all versions.
69. The Twilight Zone - In His Image / The Thirty Fathom's Grave (1963) ☼ [BD] - As I started season 4, I wondered why it contained only 18 episodes compared to the 35+ from previous seasons. Then discovered TZ was an hour long show starting with this season. Not sure so far whether this was a good thing.

October 23
70. Dexter - Do You See What I See? / Surprise! (2012) ☼ [BD] - Great. The show/season (7) ends with a bang, making me want to go forward in my viewing. Instead, I just bought a used copy of season 1 this week so now back to the beginning.
71. Masters of Horror: John Carpenter - Cigarette Burns (2005) ☼ [DVD] [Wild Card] - Using a Wild Card because of shorter length than a feature film. I think of Carpenter's Halloween which showed little blood compared to the buckets used for this one.
72. Dexter - Dexter / Crocodile (2006) ☼ [DVD] - Watching from the beginning provides background information that ties things together quite nicely.

October 24
73. Friday the 13th: The Series - Root of all Evil / Tales of the Undead (1987) ☼ [DVD] - The 2nd of these episodes revolve around a comic book. It resonated with me a bit since many friends around me in the 80s collected them.
74. The Twilight Zone - Valley of the Shadow / He's Alive (1963) ☼ [BD] - So far the hourlong episodes have been hit-or-miss for me.
75. R.L. Stine's Monsterville: The Cabinet of Souls (2015) ☼ [DVD-Redbox] Have to involve the kids in some family-friendly-fare if I want to reach 100.
76. The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014) ☼ [DVD-Redbox] Interesting remake as it pointed back to the original. This one was a little bloodier than the first one, I believe.

October 25
77. Alien (1979) [BD] - This film gets better and better each time I watch.
78. The Sixth Sense (1999) [BD] - It's been some time since I've watched this one, and I can guarantee i viewed it differently than when I did initially.
79. The Twilight Zone - Mute / Death Ship (1963) ☼ [BD] - Jack Klugman is known for comedic performances, but he also performs well in dramatic roles.

October 26
80. The Twilight Zone - Jess-Belle / Miniature (1963) ☼ [BD] - With all the big name actors appearing on this show, I wonder if there were some who turned down opportunities to appear on it.
81. The Lazarus Effect (2015) ☼ [BD-Redbox] - Not bad. Relied on some jump scares and unusual kills.
82. Deliver Us From Evil (2014) ☼ [BD-Redbox] - I had a hard time getting into this one. If I checked, I probably see this happen in late October more than any other time of year.
83. Open Grave (2013) ☼ [DVD-Redbox] - Action packed as you try to figure out what's going at the same time as the characters in the film.

October 27
84. Blood Beach (1980) [Streaming-YouTube] - I hadn't seen this film since I was a kid. I can't count it as a first time watch, but it was as if I'd never seen it before.
85. Dexter - Popping Cherry / Let's Give the Boy a Hand (2006) ☼ [DVD] - Going from season 7 to season 1 you definitely see that many characters developed.
86. The Twilight Zone - Printer's Devil / No Time Like the Past (1963) ☼ [BD] - The Printer's Devil is my favorite episode of this season so far. Burgess Meredith with another guest appearance.
87. The Twilight Zone - The Parallel / I Dream of Genie (1963) ☼ [BD] - I know I've said I like the half hour episodes better. I assume others felt the same way 50 years ago, since the next season returns to that format.

October 28
88. Black Rock (2013) ☼ [Streaming-Hulu] - A decent watch because of some solid action. Rolled my eyes a few times because of the dialogue.

October 29
89. The Twilight Zone - The New Exhibit / Of Late I Think of Cliffordville (1963) ☼ [BD] - A pair of good episodes, the first of which about wax dummies of famous murderers and a solid performance from Martin Balsam.
90. Dexter - Love American Style / Return to Sender (2006) ☼ [DVD] - A little more humor in these early episodes, though it sometimes seems forced.
91. Friday the 13th: The Series - Scarecrow / Faith Healer (1987) ☼ [DVD] - Scarecrow contained an awesome monster.
92. Dexter - Circle of Friends / Shrink Wrap (2006) ☼ [DVD] - The show is picking up steam.

October 30
93. The Twilight Zone - The Incredible World of Horace Ford / On Thursday We Leave for Home (1963) ☼ [BD] - The show is not known for very many (if at all) special effects. They were prevalent here.
94. The Babadook (2014) ☼ [DVD-Redbox] - Very creepy and well-done film.
95. Dexter - Father Knows Best / Seeing Red (2006) ☼ [DVD] - Fascinating show. Was surprised to see Malcolm Jamal-Warner pop up in an episode. I had not caught anything he's been in since Cosby and thought he was out of acting.

October 31
96. The Twilight Zone - Passage on the Lady Anne / The Bard (1963) ☼ [BD] - Overall, this series maintains a high level of quality throughout. Another random appearance: Surprised to see Burt Reynolds pop up.
97. Dexter - Truth Be Told / Born Free (2006) ☼ [DVD] - A marathon of future seasons is going to be in my near future.
98. Friday the 13th: The Series - The Baron's Bride / Bedazzled (1987) ☼ [DVD] - The downside to owning a series on DVD that you haven't seen--you feel like you can't give up on it and so I'm committed to watching the whole set even though I'm finding it to be average.
99. Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015) ☼ [Theater] - My kids thought this was better than the original. I'm not sure I'm willing to go that far, but it was good.

November 1 (After Midnight Hours)
100. The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014) ☼ [Streaming-VUDU] - Another effective effort in the found footage genre, though I tired of it slightly before it was over.

☼ = First Time Viewing

List is FINAL

Summary - Reached 100 for the 2nd time in my challenge history. I credit the Cardinals being bounced out of the playoffs earlier than usual. Also, watching a great deal of Twilight Zone episodes, which the family can enjoy together. Several new favorites from first time viewings - Quarantine, Dark Skies, Triangle, It Follows, etc. Great time overall!

Re: The 11th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa


Goal: 100
TOTAL: 55
FIRST TIME VIEWS: 37
☼ indicates first time viewing
Ratings:
★★★★★
★★★★
★★★
★★


Week 1

- October 1 -

1. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) ★★★★★
A slasher classic. There is some incredibly creepy and iconic imagery in this movie that still holds up. And Freddy is definitely more frightening here than he becomes in the sequels.

2. Hocus Pocus (1993) ★★★½
I hadn't seen this for many years until recently, and while the first re-vist was enjoyable mainly for nostalgia, it has grown on me with repeated viewings. The movie makes great use of the Halloween setting, and is a good time all around.


- October 2 -

3. The 'Burbs (1989) ★★★½
Every neighborhood has that one creepy house, and this movie makes the most of finding out who is inside. I hadn't seen this one since I was a kid, but it was really fun to re-visit.

4. Intruder (1989) ★★★½ ☼
Called by many to be the last great 80's slasher movie, and while that would not surprise me, I was a bit let down that they didn't find a better use of the supermarket setting. Even still, it was a lot of fun to watch and had some inventive moments.


- October 3 -

5. You're Next (2011) ★★★★
I hadn't seen this one since it was in theaters, but it holds up very well! It's an incredibly inventive movie that feels incredibly fresh without having to reinvent the genre. Definitely something that will make a rotation around this time of year.


- October 4 -

6. Theatre of Blood (1973) ★★★½ ☼
An outlandish performance from Vincent Price makes this a lot of fun. Having all of the deaths come from the works of Shakespeare kept you guessing what you would see next.

7. Death Spa (1988) ★★★★ ☼
Probably my favorite first time viewing of the challenge so far! An incredibly bizarre and dated film with great moments that kept me enthralled and laughing throughout. Definitely one of the best cheesy '80s slashers.

8. The Addams Family (1991) ★★★½
Another Halloween favorite from my childhood. The jokes still hold up, and every performance from the members of the Addams Family is great!

9. Cooties (2014) ★★½ ☼
A movie that I'm surprised I didn't like more. It was definitely fun, but mostly felt pretty flat. There wasn't too much that was unique to this movie, except for the zombie kids, but even then, I don't feel as though they used this to its fullest potential, but still relied on this at the expense of the rest of the story.


- October 5 -

10. Night of the Demons (1988) ★★★½
Ridiculous '80s cheese, but so much fun! This definitely gets the mood of the season, but wish there were more people at the party.


- October 6 -

11. Spider Baby or, The Maddest Story Ever Told (1967) ★★★★ ☼
Another new favorite this month! While it may no longer be considered "The Maddest Story Ever Told", it was definitely incredibly crazy. I could only imagine how bizarre this would have been in 1967. A great surprise!


- October 7 -

12. An American Werewolf in London (1981) ★★★★
This is probably the best werewolf movie I have seen. The performances in this are great, and it does an incredible job grappling with the main character's torment.

13. Opera (1987) ★★★½ ☼
I went into this with lowered expectations, but they were definitely surpassed. Not exactly the most creative or surprising film, but the visuals were very good. Overall, a pretty good movie from Argento.


Week 2


- October 8 -

14. Addams Family Values (1993) ★★★
I had not seen this movie since I was a kid, and while it was still a lot of fun, I definitely remembered the movie too fondly. The best parts of the movie involve Wednesday and Pugsley at camp. It's also strange how the main conflict of both of these Addams Family movies center around Fester. I wonder if that's how the show was as well?


- October 9 -

15. Knock Knock (2015) ★★★½ ☼
A funnier, sillier even, movie than I expected. But what should I have expected from Eli Roth? Many comparisons for this have been made to Funny Games, but I found this to be closer to Hard Candy. Still, the movie definitely kept my interest. I've always enjoyed Roth's work, and definitely count this as another one of his successes.


- October 10 -

16. House of the Long Shadows (1983) ★★★½ ☼
This was funnier than I had expected, and I was fun to see Cushing, Lee, Price, and Carradine have fun with their roles. I'm pretty sure this was the first Pete Walker film I've seen, and I definitely don't expect to see something so light hearted from him again.


- October 11 -

17. Dracula (1931) ★★★★★
My favorite of the Universal Monster movies. Yes, Bride of Frankenstein is technically a better movie, but there is something about this movie, combined with Lugosi's incredible performance, that makes it the quintessential Universal Monster movie. The visuals are spectacular, and it always brings a smile to my face.

18. Neon Maniacs (1986) ★★★ ☼
Incredibly silly, but I can't imagine anyone would not have a great time with it. At once, it almost seems like a movie directed at a younger audience, but then has moments of pretty good kills. Definitely a product of the 1980s.

19. Eyes Without a Face (Les yeux sans visage) (1960) ★★★★★
One of the best horror movies ever made. Every move this movie makes is pretty incredible, and despite being incredibly creepy, the movie also looks beautiful.

20. Young Frankenstein (1974) ★★★★★
Still the funniest comedies ever made, and the best horror comedy. I can't even count how many times I have seen this, but every joke still works just as well as the first time I had watched it.


- October 12 -

21. Terror Train (1980) ★★★½
This is a really fun movie that I enjoyed even more on a second viewing. However, I can't get over the fact that this movie really underutilized the train! Instead, this wouldn't have been that much different if they were in a hotel or secluded cabin. However, the movie is still a lot of fun!


- October 13 -

None


- October 14 -

22. They Live (1988) ★★★★
This movie never gets old. Roddy Piper makes this movie, and Carpenter's one liner's are a blast. And the story is still relevant today. Definitely one of my favorite John Carpenter movies!

23. Child's Play 2 (1990) ★★★½
Not quite as good as the original, but a surprisingly strong effort, and way better than I would have expected it to be. I've always thought of the idea of a killer doll to be incredibly silly until I saw the Child's Play movies.

24. Black Belly of the Tarantula (La tarantola dal ventre nero) (1971) ★★★½ ☼
A solid giallo that begins to lose steam in the middle. The start of the film, however, is fantastic. This movie feels like a quintessential entry in the genre.


Week 3

- October 15 -

25. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) ★★★★★
This movie is great on so many levels. The story is wonderful, the music is amazing, and there are shots in here that are among the most gorgeous and iconic ever.


- October 16 -

26. Crimson Peak (2015) ★★★ ☼
A gorgeous film - unfortunately the story was unable to keep up the the visual beauty on screen. However, I can't say I didn't enjoy it, though I wish it either had more to the story, or was even the least bit scary. Strangely, I felt that the movie may have been better without the ghosts.

27. The Midnight Meat Train (2008) ★★½ ☼
Started off pretty good, but soon began to feel repetitive. Wish I had seen more of why the train exists, and the forces behind it.


- October 17 -

28. Goosebumps (2015) ★★★½ ☼
I loved Goosebumps as a kid, both the books and the TV show. I was a bit nervous about the movie, but couldn't help checking it out. Glad I did, as this was a lot of fun! Incredibly similar to Jumanji, which works well to make a story that encompasses so many of the books.


- October 18 -

29. The Last Man on Earth (1964) ★★★½ ☼
This movie starts of great, but really falls apart by the end. Price delivers an incredible performance.

30. The Blob (1988) ★★★★ ☼
A really fun creature feature that, surprisingly, I enjoyed more than the original. The movie does a great job of balancing the tone of the original with modern influence.

31. Shaun of the Dead (2004) ★★★★★
The best modern horror-comedy. The movie is incredibly funny, but is also a great dissection about growing up and how the relationships around you change. One of Edgar Wright's very best.


- October 19 -

32. Ghostbusters (Ghost Busters) (1984) ★★★★★
Another great comedy. This movie is incredibly fun from start to finish.


- October 20 -

33. Mr. Vampire (Geung si sin sang) (1985) ★★★★ ☼
The first "hopping vampire" movie I've seen, and it was a lot of fun. This is a very silly movie, and I don't know that I understood everything that was happening, I couldn't help but enjoy this mix of martial arts and horror.


- October 21 -

34. Sugar Hill (1974) ★★½ ☼
I feel like this could have been really good, but was really held back by the PG rating. The movie overall felt very tame, but was still enjoyable.


Week 4

- October 22 -

None


- October 23 -

35. Dead Silence (2007) ★★★ ☼
An entertaining movie, but feels pretty generic and didn't exactly make sense. However, you can definitely see James Wan play with a lot of elements that show up in his future movies.

36. What We Do in the Shadows (2014) ★★★★ ☼
A really funny movie that does a great job of playing with many of the familiar vampire elements. The documentary format could have made this feel stale, but actually enhances the jokes.


- October 24 -

37. The Green Inferno (2013) ★★★★ ☼
After hearing all of the bad reviews and word of mouth, my hopes were a bit dampened for this movie. However, it turned out to be a really good homage to the Italian cannibal flicks of old - which makes perfect sense why this got bad reviews. Strangely, though, this seemed much more tame than the movies it was inspired by.


- October 25 -

38. Goodnight Mommy (Ich seh, Ich seh) (2014) ★★★★ ☼
I had heard a lot of hype about this one, and it definitely lived up to the word of mouth. This was an incredibly creepy and tense film that makes you second guess yourself constantly.

39. The Editor (2014) ★★★½ ☼
A very fun send up of the giallo genre. The filmmakers did a great job imitating the feel of many giallos, with nods to the genre at every corner. That, coupled with that this is really funny, made this a fun viewing.

40. Burn, Witch, Burn (Night of the Eagle) (1962) ★★★ ☼
This was a fun witch scare pic that had some great atmosphere. I feel like the movie didn't take the story far enough really, but that could have been a limited by its budget.

41. Nightmare Castle (Amanti d'oltretomba) (1965) ★★★ ☼
I loved the atmosphere in this movie, and feel I would have enjoyed this more if I hadn't watched a public domain version of this with terrible quality. I definitely plan to revisit this in the future.

42. Bloody Birthday (1981) ★★★★ ☼
One of the better "killer child" movies, and also one of the most exploitative. Everything in the movie works incredibly well to create a really fun movie. The only critique I'd have is regarding the incredibly lame "final girl".


- October 26 -

None



- October 27 -

43. Vampires (1998) ★★ ☼
I saw this when I was younger, and I found it to be pretty lame. Now, all these years later, I thought I'd give it another chance, as some say it's Carpenter's last good movie, but I still found it to be pretty lame.

44. The Nail Gun Massacre (1985) ★★★★ ☼
Wow, this was terrible - but I loved it! Utter nonsense from beginning to end that appears to be played straight, and this leads to one of the funniest movies I've seen during this challenge. I'll definitely be putting this one on again!


- October 28 -

45. Tales from the Darkside: The Movie (1990) ★★★ ☼
This was a fun anthology movie, but nothing too special. My favorite story was "Lot 249".


The Final Days and Halloween

- October 29 -

46. Poltergeist (2015) ★½ ☼
The worst movie of the challenge. I may not be the biggest fan of remakes, but I can at least appreciate that they usually try (though unsuccessfully) to improve upon the source material. Instead, this was an incredibly lazy film that doesn't even come close to anything the first movie did right.

47. Dracula (1979) ★★★ ☼
The performances and cinematography were great in this, but the script was very uneven. Still, it was definitely enjoyable.

48. Monkey Shines (1988) ★★★★ ☼
This was better than I expected! It got off to an slower start, but once Ella is introduced, things really kick into high gear and creates a very interesting killer monkey picture. The actors did a great job with their characters.

49. The Quatermass Xperiment (1955) ★★★★ ☼
A very cool sci-fi/horror movie about the first people to go to space. The movie is pretty great, but falls apart a bit in the third act. It basically goes from very interesting to fun. Still, had a great time with this!


- October 30 -

50. The Mummy (1959) ★★★★ ☼
A very cool take on the story, and definitely a different version of the story than I had seen before. I'm having a blast watching more of the Hammer horror versions of the classic monsters for the first time!

51. The Final Girls (2015) ★★★ ☼
Starts off incredibly well, only to lose some steam at the end. Still, a very fun love letter to '80s slashers!

52. Killer Workout (1987) ★★★ ☼
Absolutely ridiculous. While not quite as good as Death Spa, viewed earlier in the challenge, this was definitely a great entry in the "so bad it's good" category.


- HALLOWEEN -

53. The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) ★★★★★ ☼
The best of the Hammer classic monster films so far. This seems to be closer to the book than Universal's version (though I prefer Universal's) and it leads to a very interesting, and twisted story.

54. Tales of Halloween (2015) ★★★½ ☼
This was better than I expected. As with any anthology, some are hits, others are misses. But, I found myself enjoying most of these, and even some that might not have landed in the end. Overall, a good movie that captures the spirit of Halloween pretty well.

55. Who Can Kill a Child? (¿Quién puede matar a un niño?) (1976) ★★★★
I watched this for the first time as the last movie during my third challenge in 2008, which was also the first time I really participated. I didn't enjoy this quite as much as the five stars I gave it the first time, but I still find it to be a very strong movie that works incredibly well. Definitely something that I look forward to revisiting again!

Re: The 11th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa

OCTOBER CHALLENGE 2015

Goal: 120

Blue = Repeated viewing
Green = 1st time viewing
Red = A first for me, got addicted to vinyl in December of last year, so started buying some of my favorite horror soundtracks. Not counting these towards my total, but still worth identifying given the season and fun of the challenge.

Sept 30th (Dusk)
1)Eyes Without a Face - (BLU RAY) Do you think this was the inspiration for the Nicolas Cage blockbuster Face Off? I must be one of 'those people' who don't bat an eyelash when watching an innocent girl get her face sliced off, but get upset at the sight of multiple dogs in kennels. A classic that is still chilling despite how far horror has evolved, evidenced clearly by the surgery scene. 9/10
2)Scream 4 - (BLU RAY) Sorry, but I will never refer to this film by Scre4m. I guess being gay isn't enough to save you in a 21st century horror film. Features the single most incompetent police force I have ever seen in a movie, and far too many convenient plot holes to ignore. Take the entire ending sequence in the hospital for instance, in which the sole survivor of a brutal massacre rips out her IVs and EKG leads, is able to wander off and several gun rounds being fired off without a single staff member being alarmed. The entire cast returning from the prior films all phone in their performances, and I would even say I prefer the third film to this turd. 4/10
3)The Roost - The bookend segments with the horror host were a nice touch, and makes me appreciate how far Ti West has come as a filmmaker since his beginnings. The only way to appreciate this is by treating it as an amateur film, and it succeeds there. Overall though, the film quality, acting and scares were all sub-par. 5/10

Oct 1st
4)The Bogey Man (1980) - (BLU RAY) A slow ride that has little payoff during the film's climax. They couldn't have chosen a more threatening item to personify evil than a mirror? Really? 4/10
a)The Omen Soundtrack - Horrifying soundtrack with a blend of satanic chanting and loud strings. It makes you feel like the son of Satan could be summoned right before your eyes.
5)V/H/S/ Viral - (BLU RAY) Love the series and so thought this was a safe blind buy, but holy shit is it laughable. The first segment has a magician pulling some moves from Dragon Ball Z, and just when I thought it couldn't get worse, the second segment has monster genitalia, which laves the third segment as the least offensive, although I think a Tony Hawk pro skater mode where you can chop off skeletons heads with a sword while skating would be a sweet tribute. 2/10
6)Xtro - Saw the trailer for this and thought it was worth checking out. Does some have great effects, and I loved the birthing scene, but otherwise was a chose to sit through at times. I think the midget clown brought to life from a toy is the most terrifying thing about this film. 4/10

Oct 2nd
7)John Carpenter's The Ward - (BLU RAY) I'm a RN at a psychiatric hospital, and I found the entire film to be offensive not on a filmmaking level, but as a psych RN. Clients were left unattended for amounts of time, were able to get behind nurses station and read charts/look at medicine, have dangerous objects at their disposal like mirrors in their rooms, I could go on and on...Nothing remotely scary, the makeup on the ghost looked like high school work, and I found it funny how all the hospitalized clients are of the same age. 3/10
8)The Terror Within - Did the full grindhouse experience with this and Dead Space, so bonus points for that cool feature. A blatant alien ripoff, and the monster suit reminded me of the licker from Resident Evil 2, or Killer Croc from Batman lore. 4/10
9)Dead Space - Main character looks like a Kevin Bacon stunt double reject. I'll summarize the film for the lazy: guy shoots at monster, monster retreats into a vent only to return larger later, repeat for 80 minutes. Still, there's something to be said of the Captain character, you don't see Han Solo reclining near naked in a sauna while his ship is being shot down. 4/10
10)Zombeavers - (BLU RAY) Loved it! When people would ask me what film I'm most looking forward to watching during my vacation, this was my answer. Lived up to my expectations, full of laughable dialogue (safety orgy, "I feel like a f*cking Power Ranger" while dude having sex), ridiculous ideas (beavers cutting phone lines) and bravo to puppetry effects. 8/10
11)Scarecrows - (BLU RAY) Maybe I missed the point of the film, but often in horror, a viewer should relate to or feel sympathy for characters. Not here, they're criminals right from the start, so who cares what happens to them? Dumb criminals at that, not one of them thought to use fire? Reminded me of a lame version of Predator, with unseen forces taking out a team of commandos. 4/10

Oct 3rd
12)Trick or Treat - (BLU RAY) - Not great, but a gem to discover. I'm huge into rock music and just got into collecting vinyl, so this movie appealed to me. Strange lack of a soundtrack throughout though, I don't recall hearing like sound effect noises and the sort, just silence besides characters' dialogue. Not great, but I had a good time watching it. 6/10

Oct 4th
13)Ouija - (BLU RAY) MTV generation horor. Witchboard made the supernatural terror of a ouija board successfully, this film did not. 2/10
b)Poltergeist Soundtrack - Makes you feel like you've gone through hell and back with the comforting main melody, then ominous music just barraging your senses. Sadly, my vinyl copy is quite loud with cracks and pops, otherwise the soundtrack itself is stellar.

Oct 5th
14)Terror - Good production value and set pieces and it was a joy to watch a man die by being wrapped in reels of tape before falling down the stairs, that's not something you see too often. Best thing about the movie is the ending in which the ghost wins! Screw the good guys. 5/10
15)Species - Still holds up, minus the dated CGI. When Sil is jumping around the walls of the cavern in the climax and the tentacles coming out of teenage Sil's face all had me rolling my eyes. Does feature a 90's selfie before selfies were cool! 7/10
16)Insidious - (BLU RAY) I'm glad when I am astral projecting, my spiritual body goes to the further realm of tits and debauchery. So, if that realm were to cross over, I'd be ok with that. The first hour is infinitely better than the last half hour, I much prefer haunted house jump scares, so once the mystery was explained, I didn't even get goosebumps once. In fact, I thought the Maul demon was a cool guy, what with the sharpening of his claws and marionettes in his little foyer home. 6/10

Oct 6th
17)Nekromantik - (BLU RAY) I'm not familiar with Germany's safety regulations, but disposing of corpses without wearing gloves is just as terrifying as anything else I watched this year. One odd trait I noticed was the film featured TWO characters pissing on screen within the first ten minutes. I barely winced watching the animal kill scenes in Cannibal Holocaust, but the gutting and skinning the rabbit scenes shown here were repulsive. I regret purchasing this one, and will be selling it pronto as I found no replay value. 1/10
18)Wedding Slashers Good effort for a direct to video production, and enjoyable slasher. Offers some humerous dialogue at times, such as one character insisting Sigourney Weaver was the woman who taught monkeys to talk and communicate. 4/10
19)Motivational Growth - Perhaps the film I was looking forward to watching most this challenge. Based off the trailer, I thought it would be a black comedy similar to American Psycho, but instead, it's an existential piece of work that ponders the meaning of existence. I'll be watching this for sure, probably with commentary in the future, as most of the film went right over my head. Did love the 8 bit horror music though. 6/10

Oct 7th
20)Some Guy Who Kills People - Decent slasher that offers a twist ending. Like most slashers, nothing spectacular, but enjoyable. 5/10
21)Evilspeak - (BLU RAY) Anyone else want to pitch in for a star on the Hollywood walk of fame for Clint Howard? I feel he's more than deserving. Was far surprised how much I enjoyed this one, don't think I've ever been more satisfied with a film's ending. 8/10

Oct 8th
22)The Devil's Men - I barely remember watching this one despite starring two genre legends. Has a somewhat suspenseful climax, but otherwise everything else is average.
23)Insidious 2 - (BLU RAY) Expected to enjoy this one much more than I did, but ended up disliking it for the fact is focused more on the husband's gradual possession and murderous tendencies rather than entities from 'the further'.

Oct 9th
24)Bad Dreams - (BLU RAY) A complete ripoff of Nightmare on Elm Street 3, but I'm ok with that. Two great scenes were the massive blood bath spewing forth from the vents in the hospital, as well as a dream sequence of a recently laid off employee running down his boss with his car. As an added perk, the end credits were Guns N Roses "sweet child of mine" which is very fitting for the film.
25)To Let - Stereotypical in every fashion, with the victims having SO MANY opportunities to kill their captors, but instead choose to run or some other stupid act.

Oct 10th
26)Invaders From Mars ('86) - (BLU RAY) Run of the mill alien invasion from a child's perspective, complete with the 'no one believes me' angle, but does offer some great makeup and effects. My biggest complaint was the lack of explanation for the aliens' motive, they take over a few adults in town, but make no effort to assimilate everyone.
27)Eaten Alive - (BLU RAY) Surprise Tobe Hooper double feature! With so many choices of alligator attack films to chose from (Lake Placid, Alligator, etc), this one stands apart by throwing in a psychotic motel owner into the mix.

Oct 11th
28)Species 2 Glad to see Michael Madsen and Natasha Henstridge back, but lacks suspense when compared to its predecessor.

Oct 12th
29)Monkey Shines - (BLU RAY) Who knew a monkey's POV is very similar to a dog's, except with more screeching and drum beats. There's plenty of story to develop in the film's two hour run time, but I caught myself looking at my clock several times.

Oct 13th
30)She Killed in Ecstasy -(BLU RAY) Let me tell you, an attractive woman cutting a man's chest dully with a knife and then sucking his blood while completely undressed is not my idea of torture. Does feature the most poorly acted pillow strangulation scene in the history of film, but otherwise, your typical Franco production.

Oct 14th
31)Evil Toons Evil Toons? As in, more than one, right? Because by my count, there was only one evil toon in the whole film. It's like a lame, adult version of Scooby Doo, and I say that as one scene featured a jiggle sound effect while a girl twerks, and one character just staring and pointing when a blanket falls off a corpse.

Oct 15th
32)Species 3 Don't ever interrupt alien rape, seriously, don't do it.

Oct 16th
33)Skeeter
34)Mosquito - (BLU RAY)

Oct 17th
35)Blood Diner - (BLU RAY)

Past Horror Totals:
6th (2010) = 192 (114 FTVs) (Converted from Dumb-Counting Method Total of 184) The Checklist Completed!
7th (2011) = 156 (126 FTVs) (Only Watched Movies)
8th (2012) = 89 (89 FTVs) (Converted from Dumb-Counting Method Total of 80)
9th (2013) = 95 (64 FTVs) (Converted from Dumb-Counting Method Total of 73)
10th (2014) = 49 (29 FTVs) (Only Watched Movies)
I will be using the Easy Counting Method but at the end of the challenge I will break down the total into Movies, hour long TV shows and half hour TV shows for those still clinging onto "The Old Ways".
