It's the worst. Luckily Deep Discount seemed to prove to be helpful and are sending out a replacement. That will be the most painless experience I've had with their service department to date.

I gave it to my daughter as she'd started watching with S2 and said she likes the program. She's still watching as the grandkids will mention it occasionally (she apparently lets the 5yo watch so it can't be too bad/scary).

I've never read the comic but it comes highly recommended by the LCS manager.

Thinking about Sunday's episode, maybe the 5-year-old got some tips for when he's old enough for Little League.

If you saw a couple of the big scenes from the most recent episode, you might be rethinking that.

Even if it hadn't been picked up by a major network it'd have been edited for late night Horror Host type programs who were always looking for new offerings.
Missed the context Why show Halloween on TV in the movie, Halloween 3. So Michael Myers does not live in the context of the Halloween 3 movie outside of it just being a movie.

Yep... I've never seen any other than the first so had no idea the first was on TV in the 3rd.

I read that the plot of 3 is unrelated to the other films in the series due to the absence of Michael Myers. So... Promotion? Homage? Or being "unrelated" means it's a different universe so the first 2 movies are the inspiration for the goings on in 3 since they didn't actually happen?

Their mom (my daughter) frequently lets them watch stuff I feel is age inappropriate. I'm surprised when the 5yo comes in saying she watched certain TV shows with mom (like Walking Dead) - but then grandma (my wife) watches stuff like CSI with her and the other two (10 & 13) and has for years so... The 5yo may be headed towards a career as a doctor/surgeon as she *loves* to watch that kind of stuff. But I think some of CSI is a bit much for younger kids - especially the 10 year old who's still frightened by the old Universal horror films. She's tried to watch Frankenstein with her brother and me a few times but doesn't make it too far before bailing on us. Because of that I've not even asked her to watch Dracula or The Wolf Man as I feel those are more intense than Frankenstein. Her brother (the 13yo) and I have watched all three as well as a few others. I started him on them when he was ~8, the age I was when I discovered horror films, and he's really enjoyed them. I've been considering watching Alien with him.

I'm behind on reading the comments so I apologize if someone else has suggested this. I don't recommend movies a lot but I want to recommend Dead Silence. It was directed by James Wan and written by Leigh Whannel (which makes it a checklist item). It also fits today's theme and it is available on Netflix Streaming if you have Netflix. I won't go into the movie so that you can go in blind if you want but I found it very intelligent and enjoyable.

The series wasn't meant to be about Myers until everyone cried when he wasn't in the 3rd. The series was going to have different stories, like what they do on TV with things like Goosebumps, only rated R movies instead.

When I was a kid, the only one ever on TV (didn't have HBO) was part 3.

Looks like Hex is now streaming free for Prime members. Fits today's theme.

It should be noted that a good rule of thumb while watching is to avoid social media and magazine newsstands. Last Sunday's episode was already spoiled on the Entertainment Weekly Facebook page right in the headline and the accompanying photo just three days after it aired. Even the upcoming print issue has a major spoiler on the cover.

Shaw Brothers? I just streamed Out of the Dark on Netflix and it was really obnoxious; at times it flirted with being a light spirited mix of humor and zany horror but, while the Leon the Professional reference on the title had my early interest, it ended up being like a dumb asian 'Scary Movie' parody film. I think if I expected this sort of thing going it I might have enjoyed it more.

My Herschell Gordon Lewis Feast set today came in, that is a thing of beauty - I had wanted the movies so didn't pay much attention to the packaging so was very surprised to see...
Spoiler:
it's a clever cereal box sized breakfast parody.

Same here! Didn't expect so much quality and attention to detail with the 'cheaper' set. It certainly eased the regret of not getting the $250 set for me.

Is that one any good? I've wanted to check it out for many years but I could never find it anywhere. Was hoping it would turn up on Netflix but it never did (that I know of).

Takashi Miike's meta Over Your Dead Body was a real chore to get through. This is one I probably would appreciate more on a second viewing when in the right mindset and not challenge-cramming. At this point in the game I'm officially done taking risks without doing some homework beforehand.

Currently in the middle of a Conjuring double feature. So much better than the Insidious films.

It's a blast. Very atmospheric throwback horror that takes place primarily in a mausoleum. Perfect for Halloween viewing. Supposedly there's also a remake in the works.

Indulged in a Mummy triple feature tonight. In chronological order I watched The Mummy (1932), The Mummy (1959), and finally The Mummy (1999). Interesting what bits the remakes kept and changed. Certainly one constant is the tragic romance, which presumably will be kept intact for the Tom Cruise Mummy remake due in 2017 (it's been 18 years (geez) since the Sommers' Mummy, so I guess we're due).

I won't go into the movie so that you can go in blind if you want but I found it very intelligent and enjoyable.
Loved the film. Very underrated and freaky.

When I was a kid, the only one ever on TV (didn't have HBO) was part 3.
They should have just called this film something else. It was kind of hard to get through. When you saw the first two and getting ready for #3 and hoping for a good slasher, this was highly disappointing and a totally different pace. I can see why it bombed in the theaters. Why do people even like this film nowadays?

Thanks for the tip on Hatchet, which I'm not familiar with. I'll try it!

And I'm cautiously optimistic about the Cubs, but all my years of following them have been a unique kind of horror challenge, so we'll see.
David, did you send it to me or Chad? Because I got no PM...

That sounds like an interesting marathon. I'll have to keep the Sommers' Mummy movies in mind. I've thought about them, but never knew whether they were horror.

The Mummy (1999) is not listed as horror on imdb, but it is on allmovie.com.

I remember seeing Halloween 3 at the drive-in during its theatrical run. As you say, we were confused and disappointed, expecting a Mike Meyers film. I didn't like it then, probably mostly due to the bait and switch, and have never bothered to watch it again. When I watch the Halloween franchise movies now, I skip it. Maybe I should give it another shot though. It would have to be for free though. I'm not wasting money on it until I know I like it.

Watched that the other day, too. Wasn't a big fan really, but I guess it was okay . The concept deserved more.
