I've only seen the first one.
I won the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th movies on Blu for participating in the July Sci-Fi challenge. I watched the 2nd over the weekend (not bad) and will be tackling the next two soon. So I will join your pain Probably not tomorrow though ... my job has me not getting home until close to 10 pm (and I work the next day). You can tell me how good they are so I have something to look forward to for the weekend

Looking forward to your thoughts!

If anyone has seen Fright Night 2: New Blood (and sorry if you did), I really thought they should have cast Bruce Campbell as Peter Vincent. That whole time I could see Bruce playing this character.

For tonight, I ended up watching Phenomena. I know it's Argento, but talk about a random movie.

And here was today's theme shirt:

Spoiler:


It glows in the dark, but I didn't try to photograph it that way.

It Came From Outer Space arrived in the mail today. I think I know what will be on tap for tomorrow's theme. It should be fun watching it in 3D.

Blood Diner and Chopping Mall also arrived. The October purchases are starting to pile up. I think it's time I started digging into that pile some more.

I took advantage of today's theme to watch some kaiju goodness. I just finished the final Showa era Godzilla film, Terror Of MechaGodzilla.

It's past midnight for me. I'm in Eastern time, so I put the movie in right after midnight.

Just watched my first ever episode of Ash vs The Evil Dead, and loved it. I look forward to watching more episodes of the show.

I'm playing a bit of catch-up, so here's some Multiquote Madness!

I agree with this exactly. I felt like the ghost story was tacked on, and that

If today is anything to go by, these prices don't seem that appealing. I've bought many of these for much less, some even from past years of the Shocktober sale! However, if you're into the IFC B-movies, those are apparently some very good prices!

Misery comes close, as the performances are great, but the plot isn't very memorable. I am loathe to admit that I've never seen Cujo and The Dead Zone--I really need to remedy that soon.

So, yeah. Just De Palma's Carrie, as far as I'm concerned (at least for the moment).
I definitely agree about Carrie! Easily the best King adaptation, and probably my favorite DePalma movie. Well, I mean, The Shining is better, to me, but as others have said, not much of King's work is in there.

I'm incredibly excited to watch The Night Evelyn Rose from the Grave on BD! I received the Something Weird DVD as a prize after really taking part in the challenge for the first time (I had mostly lurked before, and wasn't able to watch too much). It'll be great to see it in pristine condition. But, if it wasn't for this challenge, I don't know that I would have ever even heard of it!

Unfortunately, didn't get anything in today... between work and moving into this new place, time has not been on my side, despite really only wanting to watch movies all day. Hopefully soon!

It reminds me of the ghost stories of Edith Wharton and Henry James: Gothic yet very literary. It captures the feeling of those stories in much the same way The Innocents does, only with the ghosts made more explicit and contemporary.

I'm glad you clarified the Netflix rating system. I was going to point that out too. It's based on how you've rated previous films and what your viewing habits are. I've found their predictions to be not too bad actually, but I like bad movies, so...

As for Crimson Peak goes, the problem was that it was MARKETED as a scary horror movie, and that just wasn't the case. It is exactly as you described, a gothic romance. That's not what I, or most people who saw the advertising, went in for. It was a bait and switch. But it was definitely beautiful. I would buy it if they had released it in 3D Blu-ray.

I know that Jaws 3-D is a terrible movie (good thing I like terrible movies), but I didn't remember how beautiful it is in 3D until I watched the new Blu-ray. Don't get me wrong, the 3D special effects are terrible, but just the 3D of the movie itself looks extremely good. You don't have to watch too much of it to see what I mean either. The waterskiing show during the beginning of the film looks fantastic.

That's great to hear. Looking forward to that on Shark Day.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 12th Annual October Horror Movie Challenge (Oct 1-31) Pt

Watched the remake of The Amityville Horror (2005). It is so disappointing because they could have fixed the problems in the first one and made an even better, more spooky movie if they had based it more on the book. Instead they just went for a lame jump scare every two minutes (seriously...I don't know if there is any other movie with more jump scares) and editing stolen from movies like The Grudge and The Ring which were popular at the time. Add in a bunch of nonsensical business with the ghost Jodie and you have a shitty horror film with good production values.

Plus you are missing the most spooky thing about the original...the movie score by Lalo Schifrin. I swear that score gives me chillbumps just thinking about it.

Also watched It Came From Outer Space in 3D last night. The good news is that the transfer is fantastic. It looks spectacular and the 3D has great depth throughout. The bad is that the 3D really isn't used much more than added depth (which again looks great) and there aren't more than a few "3D money shots." Also the story is weak. Not much fun or action to be had in this one. But it is still worth checking out, especially since it is only $7.99 at Best Buy right now.

Just pulled out my horror binder So-Sr with all my Species discs. Yep, four different discs of the original film. Each with unique special features, so I can't replace the old ones of course!

I can't find the older boxset on Amazon, there are multiple other Species collections now. But the old one had separate discs of the first three films, and then this fourth disc:
And there's a 4th/bonus disc not mentioned (as of 09/20/05) in Amazon's summary:
Bonus Disc:
- The Origin featurette
- The Concept featurette
- The Discovery featurette
- Designing a Hybrid featurette
- HR Giger At Work featurette
- Species II: Eve of Destruction featurette
- Species III: Genesis featurette
- Species Alternate Ending

For those who haven't seen it, I would definitely recommend it.
I enjoy both the film and the TV series, at least the first few seasons.

I watched it last night and hope to never see it again.

I didn't think the house was that good, especially considering it's not even seen until almost half way through. It has some interesting places but overall it was wasted on a very average story.

Absolutely... a twist that wasn't. So... King said it was terrifying. Maybe *that's* why I don't much care for his novels or films based on them. We have different ideas of horror. I don't think a different frame of mind would help my opinion. It was a average gothic romance/drama/murder mystery story with some ghosts tacked on for "atmosphere."

Yep... bait 'n switch to the max! I started my viewing at ~8pm and was surprised I didn't fall asleep on it! It *does* have some good cinematography, set design, lighting, music, acting, but not much of a story. I was *very* disappointed in this one.

Last night, I watched Crimson Peak for the third time and was very satisfied with the BD. While this may be premature to say since the film only came out last year, it's one of my favorite films, especially recent films. I try to stay away from trailers and marketing when I can, so I went into the film knowing the director, the cast, and a bit about the film's aesthetic. I was delighted that it was a Gothic Romance; no one makes those anymore!

I commented yesterday that I understand some of the criticisms of the film, but after seeing it again, I think that the story is actually quite rich. Sure, it's a bit heavy-handed (you see, the ghost is a metaphor), but it's drawing on a genre that isn't known for subtlety. The main trio of characters are types, but they are fleshed out by nuanced performances. The "twists" can be guessed before they are revealed, but that seems the point. We as the audience know how twisted and damaged other people can be, but the characters living in the moment refuse to see or believe until things are made explicit.

A lot of Gothic literature is about the breakdowns in society and individuals due to anxieties about the world both changing and remaining stagnant. Del Toro expertly mines these anxieties and heightens them for his characters. They are so tied to this decaying house that it's difficult to see where one ends and the other begins. He brings in aspects of industrialization and American decadence and elitism that are pushing their way to prominence. There's a lot to unpack in his ghost story!

If the film had done well, I think it would have been interesting to see a sequel about the house set in more modern times.

I play fast and loose with my tracking days for theme purposes. Those hours from midnight until dawn might be used for binging on the (technically) previous day's theme, or I might start at midnight for the next day's theme. So a day on my list could conceivably be as few 12 hours or as many as 36.

I am similar, although I usually lean toward the dawn rule that we use for Halloween.

I have a friend who loves the sequel, even saying he prefers it to the original. Needless to say, I don't put much stock in his opinions on movies.

I like Fulci, so every couple of years I try to like House by the Cemetery.

I guess I'm watching it again in 2018, cuz I don' like it this time either.

Which sequel? We're talking about the sequel to the remake. That sounds like your friend might like the sequel to the original 80s flick. I've heard that opinion a number of times. I watched them both just before October for reviews and address that opinion in my review of the second.

What was that? A prize entry docked for everyone who bumps the old thread starting now? I'll second that.

I guess I'm watching it again in 2018, cuz I don' like it this time either.
According to my lists I watched that one October 19th, 2011 and gave it 3/5 stars. So I guess I sort of liked it? I don't recall much about it but that *was* the year I watched 159 movies and completed the checklist and theme nights. Much of that month is a blur...
