Sunday Night Trivia Question: Chapter 3

Ideas/Suggestions for Next Challenge:
Recently deceased seems unruly with so many names and a lot of them don't seem to have big horror outputs, maybe trim it down to just watch a movie by a recently deceased contributor.
Remove 'masters of commentary,' it's too specific when most participants don't emphasize commentary tracks anyway.
Consider alternating out 'tales place on lake/water' because variety.
Be cool with multiple viewings of same movie.
The checklist feels routine and most people who watch 100 films might automatically complete it anyway, maybe alter checklist to include subtle things like grimy walls, white dresses, axe, flickering lights, or other tropes more like a scavenger hunt.
Maybe allow for multiple day themes - for example, there are tons of zombie or vampire films so maybe there could/should be multiple zombie days (or maybe an Undead week with linked themes alternating each day)

Future Theme or Checklist Ideas: Victims sleeping through chaos and/or sleep related, Mirrors, Takes Place in a Mall checklist item, Psychiatric Theme Day, Sealed Room theme day (a room or building that is sealed away is catalyst), Electronic voice phenomena and/or cameras/technology showing truth, Jocks/Bullying, Redemption/Soul Harvesting, burgomaster present, horror movie playing on television, dogs

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

I love Scream, but I agree that the 90s had a serious dearth of quality horror films.

That is literally the worst thing ever.

And here I was about to complain about The Vampires Night Orgy having a misleading title. It's actually a pretty atmospheric Euro vampire film, although I think it's one of those rare breeds that is actually more effective when watching the crappy VHS transfer the public domain sets offer.

Anyone own this UHD DOTD set from Midnight Factory?



Somehow I missed the news on the disc recall and just requested a replacement. Is the cropping issue really that noticeable? I really wanna see this in 4k for Romero day even though the Euro is not my preferred cut (theatrical).

Currently watching The Spell and I don't know if I've seen a shittier family. The mother, father and younger sister are all absolute pieces of human garbage to this poor girl and I hope they all bite it in miserable fashion by the end of this thing.

The Devil's Candy is a sizzling movie, a follow-up from the same writer/director of The Loved Ones (which I think it over-rated). I saw Devil's Candy has gotten good reviews but wow, what a great film. I really liked how subtle some of the supernatural elements were .

It's surprising Tony Amendola hasn't been in more horror movies, he's got a small role in Devil's Candy and Annabelle, but that guy personifies creepy.

Awesome. Thanks, that's the list I was talking about (and probably the only one I can do this month). Now the new mission to find the grail...

I'm going to be going to our Halloween Store today, but when I am home, I plan to hit the Challenge hard today. Started out in the middle of the night by watching a documentary on Godzilla, called Godzilla And Other Movie Monsters. I haven't watched it in years, so I decided to pop it in.

Went back and re-watched Pet Semetary, then reread the old thread from the 2015 challenge. There was a good bit of discussion in that thread and a good bit of unanswered questions. Stephen King wrote the darn screenplay and you would think some things would be clearer. I'm assuming there was a longer cut, and some of the stuff was excised. Still an excellent movie in my eyes.

Bingo!

And here's my likely yearly proclamation that this compilation of Braindead recap videos is the greatest thing in the history of things.

Watched Dracula A.D. 1972 last night because...Stephanie Beachem. Other than the Stoneground performance early on, with the painful, Austin Meyers level 60s ridiculousness surrounding it, this is actually a good little late Hammer movie. Certainly better than Scars and Satanic Rites!!!



Kind of hard to mistake her for a teen or even young adult as they seem to want you to....but who cares.

That checklist looks a bit familiar.
To be fair, they give this place all the credit and link to our challenge

You're overthinking these things, my friend! When watching those later day Hammer films, just go with those last 3 words "...but who cares" and you'll be OK.

Isn't that the truth!

I'll probably watch Scars OR Satanic Rites before the month is over. I've seen the GOOD Hammers so many times the weak sisters of the bunch seem relatively fresher to me. Maybe even some Monster From Hell...

Somehow I missed the news on the disc recall and just requested a replacement. Is the cropping issue really that noticeable? I really wanna see this in 4k for Romero day even though the Euro is not my preferred cut (theatrical).
From what I remember it was an authoring problem, something about every third frame having smoothed out grain.

Not familiar with that interview. I'll look it up later as I don't want to get too off topic here.

As for today's theme, I never realized how few "mummy" movies I own or have seen. I'm digging through the trenches trying to find good material that I haven't seen.

It's ironic that Dracula AD 1972 was meant to bring the franchise into the "modern" era, and now it's a kitschy period piece. I had never even heard of that band before, but the Stoneground scene is my favorite in the whole film.

Last year Hammer re-released R2 Blu-Rays of nearly their entire catalog, and there are several I would like to acquire, numero uno being Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde, which, despite the suggestive title and trailer, is an excellent version of the Jekyll/ Hyde story with elements of Burke & Hare and Jack the Ripper as well.
