I can give a second vote for Spookies, saw it earlier this year and even if it's perhaps not a "good movie", it is a lot of fun.

Exactly how I felt about those old Universal Mash-ups...not a great film, per say, but a damn fun journey.

If any of you watch it count the creatures. You may lose track!

Thanks Torstein. Hey, do you have any Scandinavian horror films to recommend? I loved Troll Hunter and Let the Right One In.

Damn! I had this in my hand t HMV yesterday and then put it back!

Hmm... there isn't that many that I think are all that great to be honest, especially from my country. Sweden has a few though. One I haven't seen people mention very often is Evil Ed from 1995 or so. That's a fun one. Frostbitten from 2006 is an alright vampire movie.

If I have to mention some Norwegian ones then I do like Villmark (Dark Woods) from 2003. Thale from 2012 is a bit more on the fantasy side, I've read that people enjoy it even if I didn't care that much for it myself.

The usual suspects of Dead Snow 1 & 2 (zombie comedy) and the Cold Prey trilogy (slasher films set in our snowy mountains) are worth giving a go.

So where are you at if you don't mind me asking? You can PM me if you don;t wan to post it.

And it has cooled off a little but is still too hot. I was at my kid's soccer game yesterday afternoon and while there was still a decent breeze every now and again, it still was around 87 degrees.

I mountain bike every Sunday morning and this morning was the first day I wore a very light windbreaker (though I start at 6am which is why it was cool enough). Just looked at the weather and it is supposed to be a high of 88 degrees again this coming weekend.

We always have an adult couples costume party around Halloween and I am hoping it will cool off more before that but it is not looking good.

Quick Poster Recognition questions: If we guess at films and are wrong, do they negate the correct guesses? (i.e. Guess 19 and get five wrong... is that +14 and Correct, or +14 and -5, or...?) And if we can't pin down which franchise entry a specific image is from, should we simply guess the over-arching series, or is that too vague..?

Thanks!

PM sent, Spider--and I was wrong on the mileage count--I had it in my head that you were in Tuscaloosa. I'm actually about 150 miles from you.

Fun Size Horror (Hulu, maybe Amazon) is a fairly good collection of short films. Some are better than others, some more familiar or overdone, but there's a decent range offered implying something for everyone.

I watched Wizard of Gore right after Phantasm, and the second thing that struck me was how both played - with varying degrees of confusion/success - with notions of what was "real". Multiple 'wakings as if from dreams'...

The first thing that I noticed was just how bad the acting was from all the main actors...

(The sub-RoboCop robots in Chopping Mall are REALLY bad shots.... don't people use laser pointers for increased accuracy? How can a computer-controlled rapid-fire laser gun be quite so off-target quite so often..?

Also, what was the point of Paul Bartel's bearded sarcastic character at the start? Did I miss him turning up again or was thay it?)

Second (third, fourth?) recommendation for The Final Girls Went in with pretty low expectations given the PG-13 and how other slasher sendups I've seen. I wasn't expecting it to have the emotional heft that it did. Particularly:
Spoiler:
that late scene with Malin Akerman and Taissa Farmiga, before Akerman goes off to face Billy stripping to "Bette Davis Eyes"


I've watched a couple of horror comedies on Netflix that I enjoyed. He Never Died has Henry Rollins as an immortal struggling to fight off his craving for human flesh. I loved Rollins' deadpan performance. Ava's Possessions did a much more entertaining job than Exorcist II of looking at what someone goes through after they're exorcised of their demon (which fortunately didn't involve lots of grasshoppers).

He said he thought Frankenstein was pretty good but I don;t know if that was lip service or not.

I, to be honest, am not a huge fan of the old monster movies but I appreciate them more than I enjoy them if that makes any sense.

Aliens, on the other hand, blew his mind. He loved every minute of it. Though he has played Mortal Kombat for the last two years, he still thinks of the Alien movies as fresh. We are going through all of them together this month.
I began introducing my grandson, now 13, to the classic Universal horror films when he was ~9. He grew up looking at the busts of Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Wolf Man I'd gotten in a special set when the first Legacy Edition DVDs came out. He called them "those men" and always asked who they were and why I had them. Dracula is the only one he's not much cared for so far.

Yep. Plot hole.

When Frankenstein was edited by the Hayes Office the last part of the scene with the monster and the little girl was excised. I'd watched it on a local TV station who had a full, unedited, copy which they aired regularly so the first time I saw this edited I was somewhat taken aback. Where was that scene? I *know* it's there! So... you'd have her father come up with her in his arms and you've never seen the monster throw her in the water! That scene has been controversial since its original release and was removed from the film by the Hayes Office in 1937 along with some dialog and a shortening of the scene in which Fritz torments the Monster with fire. Just how that TV station wound up with a unedited copy when the TV package contained the edited version is anyone's guess but I was the more fortunate for it! Their print also included Frankenstein's edited line: "It's alive! It's alive! In the name of God! Now I know what it feels like to be God!" which was missing from prints I later saw. Fortunately all those cuts have been restored for current copies.

Today's theme got me confused but it looks like anything with non-normal human killers, surreal, or art house type stuff. I'm thinking The Birds should count.

Later tonight, I'm going to start watching a Psychotronica collection I bought from VCI years ago http://www.shockingimages.com/module...php?itemid=984

If anyone else picked it up, you own a pretty hard to find and expensive OOP set

I only picked up the Slasher Video(?) Olive releases because they were cheap. Shock 'Em Dead was surprisingly good quality, but Killer Workout not so much.

Psychedelic! This one will definitely take another viewing to absorb everything. Maybe 20.

It's been included at least twice during the BOGO sale ($4.99) in the Sony Savestation at Best Buy. My location never had it.

Seriously, there's got to be a new creature (sometimes several of them) every 5 minutes, at least. It's like a cross between those old monster mash-ups Universal did, Gothic Hammer and a slasher.
I kicked off last year's challenge with it and really enjoyed it. It does deserve a proper release, as some scenes were too dark to decipher what's happening.

No. All I'm looking for is 10 correct answers. And I'm not terribly specific - if the answer is Hellraiser 3 and you answer Hellraiser, well, that's close enough.

I paid $13 for that not long ago from a VCI flash sale. Those prices are insane! Part of me now wants to sell mine but I buy stuff to *watch*.

I looked up the titles and only 2 are "genuine" horror titles. So... do they all count considering the "Psychotronica" type theme? I've been holding off on opening that one this year for that very reason.

For today's theme, I looked on YouTube. I took the chance to see a movie I had always wanted to see, primarily because I love heavy equipment. I watched Killdozer.

I've watched that during previous challenges; it's entertaining, but not great, with an array of recognizable 70s character actors. I remember watching it as a kid on TV as an



I strongly recommend watching Clown, about a genial family man who turns into a monster when he puts on a clown suit for his son's birthday party. Great make-up and effects, and a really good performance from the lead actor.

I absolutely love that movie. One of the best "new horror" films of recent.

So post Matthew; power back on now. Internet just came back. Literally half of NC was down. Unfortunately we had 7 deaths in NC. I have a lot of trees and debree down around the house, but nothing damaged.

Of course what matters most is I got Motel Hell in last night and this morning watched my Vestron copy of Chopping Mall. Not sure about this whole thing with a large distributor masquerading as a boutique, unique release brand.
