***Please don't abandon this thread immediately after Halloween!*** I'll also post the winners on the Facebook page, but don't rely on the post to make it to your news feed/wall. Check the OHMC Page directly.

If you already own some of the prizes, let me know and I'll see what I can do. As usual, no guarantees I can accommodate your request.

_________________________________________________________________



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)

Scarecrows for a theme or checklist item (or maybe merge it with mummies, not sure if they're similar enough)

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, countess bathory, apocalypse

Maybe we could extend the chronological horror theme day to include 75th anniversary as well.

Shall We Play a Game? Theme Day - films that revolve around a game or contest (Saw films, Would You Rather, Cube, Most Dangerous Game). Didn't check but not sure if we have had something like this as a theme before.

Master of Commentary: Herschel Gordon Lewis, George Romero

Future Actor/Actress Ideas: Brian Cox, Caroline Williams, Helga Liné, Lauren Ashley Carter
Director/Writer: Micheal Keating

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.
QT, watch the first part, then him wanting to watch the original is at the beginning of the second

Mummy - I have no idea what I'm watching. No mummies in my watch pile. Might hit youtube for something random. Then I can get back to finishing the movie from last night that was interrupted due to an escaped hamster that took a few hours to finally catch.

I didn't see that bit, still seems pretty lazy just to copy the checklist over like that.

Anyway, for mummy movie, I just watched Time Walker on youtube. Alien mummy attacks coeds in the 80's. If your are in the mood for some cheese it does not disappoint.

The curse, the curse!! You know it's OHMC when something major like, say, my dryer decides to break. You can't just ignore a dryer and continue watching movies; it's one of those attention vampires.

Watched the awesomely bad Dawn of the Mummy this morning that's really just Fulci's Zombi 2 in Egypt. This is the second movie I've caught with actor George Peck after Curse of the Puppet Master. I swear I've heard that Roy Scheider-sounding voice before as a reoccurring English language dubber in several Italian horror films of the 70s and 80s, but can't find any info. Now I have a new obsession.

To be continued...


I seriously hate when low budget flicks do that and don't deliver on their promise. It's not a Bond movie for Christ's sake.

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

I can't decide if I admire Universal for trying to make a sexy Mummy in the 2017 reboot with scenes that, for example, show butt cleavage as she straddled Tom Cruise and staging the whole thing as a romantic rivalry. I hadn't ever really thought about the potential for sexy mummies before now and can't wait to see how they pull off the next eventual 'wolfman'/werewolf reboot. Nevermind when they engage the mummy in an minutes long existential debate.

I do wish Universal could get their modern monster movies on the same wavelength, I've heard rumors about attempts to create a shared universe but seemingly they declare each movie a failure and reboot. Dracula Untold was not horrible and showed some promise in overlap; even the Mummy seems to go for some crossover.

I consider today a successful Halloween shopping day. I got a few decorations that hang from the ceiling at Party City, then we went across the street to Spirit. Didn't pick anything up there, but I saw some terrific animated props.

When I got back, I resumed my challenge by finishing an episode of Alaska Monsters, on Destination America GO, that I had started before we left for the day.

Why can't they make more movies like the 1999 Mummy with Brendan Fraser? That is still a jolt of sheer pleasure. It deftly combined horror with comedy and it was and is fun to watch.

So I guess the buzz on the newish Netflix original film Death Note was pretty bad, but I enjoyed it. Not great, and most of the acting was average at best, but loved the premise and Dafoe rocked the gollum suit.

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.

Trailer
I own a copy of the old Anchor Bay Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde and was very surprised to find it's not the exploitation film I expected and quite enjoyable!

I'm region free but hesitate on R2 Blu-rays as I have to set the region code for those each time. DVDs are a one-time setting to play any/all regions. If it's anything that'll change my mind it's those Hammer R2 BR releases.

Those are very enjoyable! I still watch the first 3 on a semi-regular basis and even throw in the Scorpion King ones every 3rd or 4th run through "just because."

They're trying too hard to modernize the films and force a franchise association. They need to concentrate on just making a good film first but someone seems to think that's not necessary.

I've been considering watching that trilogy some time this month, since they are available on Max Go.

After Alaska Monsters, I felt like some horror anime. So I dug out my copy of the Witchblade anime. I haven't watched it in quite a while, and never did finish it all the way through, but I've always enjoyed it. Decided to watch the Japanese language version this time through.

You know, for a 7th film in the franchise Cult of Chucky should not have been that damn good but it was!

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

Mummy is another theme night where I'm scratching my head trying to find decent selections. I'm kind of sick of Universal movies from the 30s-40s, and outside of the subset pick, I can't think of any other good movies that would fit the theme. Then again I said the same about werewolf night and I ended up enjoying Bad Moon. If anybody has suggestions, I'm open. Otherwise I'll just watch the subset pick followed by something completely unrelated.

You could always watch something like Waxwork or The Monster Squad where the mummy isn't the central character.

Not a bad idea, I've been meaning to watch Waxwork for a while, I've never seen it! Thanks.

Hammer did a few good mummy films:
The Mummy - 1959
The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb - 1964
The Mummy's Shroud - 1967
Blood from the Mummy's Tomb - 1971

Then there are some bad/cheesy ones (especially the Aztec Mummy series):
Legend of the Mummy - 1998
The Mummy Lives - 1993
Attack of the Aztec Mummy - 1957
The Curse of the Aztec Mummy - 1957
The Aztec Mummy Against the Humanoid Robot - 1958

Just started Planet Terror and decided tonight was a good night to try out this Grubhub and get some BBQ delivered.

Update: Don't order from Grubhub. Terrible experience, didn't get half my food and I have sauceless BBQ! Luckily i live in Oklahoma so I had sauce but still man what a shit show.

So, I know I am SOOOO late to the party, but I only got a Blu Ray player last year. I JUST discovered SCREAM FACTORY. They're like the Criterion of Horror.

Just snagged their Return of the Living Dead based on the extras alone. I wore the hell out of this one on VHS.

I watched the last two for Mummy Day since I'm a little tired of the Universal and Hammer films and because I pulled out a lot of my Mexican horror films this year. Curse was the worst of the two, partly due to an El Santo wannabe who just gets beat up a lot. While the Robot one was almost one half scenes from the first two, they did include some of the creepier ones. Also the evil doctor is way more maniacal in this one and the cheesy Humanoid Robot is well worth the price of admission.

I don't mean to laugh at you but how quickly I went from "Damn, I'm jealous of Ben right now!" to laughing about the update was seriously funny to me.

Internet was down all day, but I did a few mummy movies this morning. Probably not my favorite theme out there, so I switched to the Saw series. Torture porn's not my thing, either, but I survived.
