Re: The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa



Standouts: Sleep Tight, Evolution, Sweet Home, Necrophobia, Dark Signal, The Windmill, The Devil's Candy, The Transfiguration, Ghostwatch, Under the Shadow, Midnight Son, Autopsy of Jane Doe
Duds: Intruder (2016), Shelley, Hellbenders, Ludo, Beyond Re-Animator, Urban Legends: Bloody Mary, Beyond the Gates, XX, Residue, The Presence, The Visit, I Drink Your Blood
1st Viewing = first time viewing [69% of viewings; 74 out of 107 so far]
Theme = theme day items
Subset = subset film

September 30 [Criterion Challenge Crossover Theme Night - starting after dusk, 7:38pm] (4 hours, 53 minutes watched)
01. Mad Monster Party (1967, 95 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ I love the Rankin Bass animation and the epic assortment of monster characters but while the character homages are part of what 'makes' MMP I think they were also played too conservatively to the point of thin characters - this film is the poster child for the worst time of pastiche. A fun homage but not as epic as Island of Misfit toys, a near hit. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Subset
02. Get Out (2017, 104 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰Pleasantly impressive - a lot of the hype is deserved for socially conscious race relations commentary more so than on the basis of a horror movie. It was certainly original and intense, I enjoyed it but some of the humor seemed odd (I hated the TSA character) - despite inconsistent humor Get Out was an especially witty film. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing
03. Cronos (1993, 94 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰It takes chops to pull off a movie about an alchemy bug in such an whimsical and engaging way despite some plot holes. There are some great thematic elements and the score add a lot. Format: Blu-ray. Theme Subset

October 1 [RIP Tope Hooper Memorial Theme Night] (9 hours, 28 minutes watched)
04. The Mangler (1995, 104 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ In an alternate universe of comically oversized laundry presses where Robert Englund's hammy overacting is the worst part of a movie exists The Mangler, a film consisting of randomly shocked actresses and a plot propelled by a beatnick who just speculates correctly the events/basis of the movie. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX] Theme
05. Invaders from Mars (1986, 100 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ A fun homage that skirts being too derivative with well executed alien practical effects and ironic suburban atmosphere. The military aspect and one twist seems too over the top but also very 80s. Karen Black does well as a school nurse 'against the world.' Format: Blu-ray Theme
06. The Toolbox Murders (2004, 95 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Unintentionally funny 90s time capsule with a grungy handiman, loud practice acoustic alternative rock, with a timecapsule atmosphere that's better than the movie itself. Psychological thriller elements fall flat and pacing is often slow until the end. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX] Theme
07. My Babysitter is a Vampire (2010, 85 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Kids picked this one, it was better than I expected with a modern comedy Buffy the Vampire slayer vibe. As far as kid friend fiend movies go this one was better than I expected = fighting vampires with popcorn. Format: Streaming [Netflix] 1st Viewing
08. No Estamos Solos [We Are Not Alone] (2017, 76 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Serviceable hodge podge of atmospheric but overly familiar tropes aping so many other movies. The lack of originality is distracting but still some tropes still feel eerie despite the plot. Format: Streaming [Netflix] 1st Viewing
09. Sleep Tight (2011, 108 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ Tense character driven oddity that stretches disbelief but if you stick with it an effectively intense thriller with an ending that will stay with you. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX] 1st Viewing

October 2 [Toxic Slime Theme Night] (9 hours, 13 minutes watched)
10. C.H.U.D. [Integral Cut] (1984, 96 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Bait and switch if you're going in expecting a slimey gorey creature feature. Takes a while to get going and is much more subtle than the marketing hints at but the plot, which is more about the community surrounding CHUDS, is more complicated than I could appreciate in my first few viewings, even if it is slow on the creature rampage. Format: Blu-ray. Theme Subset
11. Fairlane Road (2016, 92 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ An awkwardly acted indie movie with some cryptic imagery and a plot with a dizzying lot going on for a far out deserted setting. There are creepy moments and the ending is tense so the apparently limited budget was used to some winning effect but so much of the film is slow and the actors too weak to carry the character driven dramatic aspects (two guys in the dessert). I want to rate this higher because it seems like there's a lot of heart here, but didn't. Format: Streaming [Netflix].
12. The Void (2016, 90 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Effectively paced surreal first half despite some overly familiar tropes but the second part jumps the shark and gets too vague forsaking mystery for dim light imagery. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
13. Antibirth (2016, 82 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ As much a stoner 'comedy' as a horror film Antibirth is refreshingly nihilistic and modern. It maybe rewards those with patience to sit through the stoner antics and super obnoxious characters (Meg Tilly must die). The plot is surreal and unusual. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
14. Frankenweenie (2009, 94 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Fun movie for family viewing and a gateway to classic horror even if some of the gags escape the kids. Does well at infusing syrupy sentimentality with the dog. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
15. Be Afraid (2017, 99 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Interesting creatures that blur the line between fantasy and reality but some stale acting and lame production standards give this a generic 'television' feel. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing

October 3 [Slasher/Giallo/Killer Theme Night] (11 hours, 2 minutes watched)
16. Intruder (2016, 95 minutes) ★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Prepare for the most random movie every - there's little plot, it's literally just a woman walking through her house were an unidentified person walks behind her, stands still in front of her, or takes a bit of fruit an places it back in the bowl. You're heard of 'pure cinema,' the art of visual imagery with no words or narration - prepare to sit through 95 minutes of a dull woman doing household activities unaware that standing awkwardly in her hallway for a long period of time is a stranger who just might pull some mostly non-violet tom foolery.Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
17. Most Likely to Die (2015, 90 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ A refresh throwback slasher with a bizzare masked killer and an interesting 'most likely to' gimmick, there are times the gimmick doesn't quite land (it's set up but then carried out so subtly I'd have to backtrack to check). Decent tension and kills balancing shallow drama with slasher conventions. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
18. Sweet Home (2015, 80 minutes) ★★★★★★★★★✰ Randomly watched this not expecting much and it blew me away, well staged and atmospheric with an intense scenario and some gore. The premise is simple enough but the execution and performances are top notch. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
19. It (2017, 135 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ A retro themed update with different plot structure and a more in your face clown. It feels like the kids are up against more here with both natural and supernatural adversaries turned up a notch perhaps to a fault with bullies sometimes seeming unbelievable nasty. Format: Theatrical. 1st Viewing Theme
20. Friday the 13th Part 2 [R Rated Cut] (1981, 87 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Not my favorite Friday the 13th but makes some genius additions to the mythos building it past the first movie with some gruesome reminders. The middle is slow and there are some odd plot elements. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Subset Theme
21. Preservation (2014, 90 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Tense thriller with some interesting themes about nature vs technology convenience and youth vs age but those themes and the plot are largely lifted from other; Preservation is a decent film just not an original one. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
22. Luna De Miel [aka Honeymoon] (2015, 96 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Novel premise for a torture porn flick with heart. The psychopath is a little flat and dispassionate for the role which gives some of the gruesome proceedings a strangely casual feel. Typical for torture porn it goes to extremes but some cheap production values hold it down. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
23. Hellbenders (2012, 85 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Felt like something more lighthearted after super murder theme day - Hellbenders is a colorful film about hellbound sinful priests who can die and drag resistant demons to hell with them if all else fails, it's humor comes mostly from contradictions of priests using profanity in reference to spiritual protection creating a sort of religious humor that might suite a specific niche audience. If priests cussing is hilarious then this movie is for you. The lowbrow jokes get old quick and the movie's not especially tense/scary - the demons are mostly so cartoonish there's not much threat and it's all just so meh. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing

October 4 [Animated Theme Night] (7 hours, 23 minutes watched)
24. Extraordinary Tales (2013, 73 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Computer generated animation is cel shaded pleasantly to look of a better quality than it is but at times the filters/digital is distracting. Fun celebrity narration (I suspect sources from other places because the wraparound segment voices are subpar) is nice and some of the visuals are creative (my favorite is Red Death). The stories in this anthology are artfully constructed with stylish touches but sometimes oversimplified to a fault where it seems some of Poe's story is lost; there are 5 segments plus a wraparound. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
25. Ludo (2015, 87 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Named after an apparently popular board game (like Sorry); Ludo is more interesting to me as an international film showcasing a different culture (in part here the females are sexual aggressors, not sure if that's just horror fantasy 'slut' trope?). Some kids break into a mall where crudely made up white faced people show up, apparently these are ghosts, to challenge the kids to a gorey version of Ludo. Fortunately the blood effects are better than the ghost ones and there's a bit of gore. The mall setting is underutilized; it could just as well have been a school, grocery store, or dance hall (no obvious Dawn of the Dead style commentary here - just superficial popcorn horror); really gets weird when it changes direction to tell some metaphysical tale of evil Lugo's origin. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
26. Patchwork (2015, 86 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Very intentionally strange and fun spirited film that never really makes sense and while it can be devil may care braindead fun there are countless other body horror / Frankenstein riffs that are better executed. It's stupid but never quite crazy enough to be memorable (see the similar but superior Sexy Killer instead or even re-watch Re-animator). There is a clever internal monologue gag and the actresses are not bad. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
27. Scooby Doo! Camp Scare (2010, 77 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Cool campout theme with three different monsters and a few additional gang members. The villains is less obvious. I might have rated it higher but I find I need to be in the right mood for Scooby Doo these days since the movies are so formulaic. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
28. The Empire of Corpses (2015, 120 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ A strange anime-ish hybrid of Frankenstein lore with apocalyptic zombie slaves and musings on the nature of the soul that includes Sherlock Holmes and Ulysses Grant. Not really geared towards horror because it gets more technical about mythos and goes so overboard into fantasy sci-fi, a bizzare spin on Frankenstein. The action and scope of the film give it an epic grand feel, it really works. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme

October 5 [Werewolf Theme Night] (9 hours, 20 minutes watched)
29. Bad Moon (1996, 80 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ I was glad to see Bad Moon selected as a subset film, I've heard excellent things about it. It's a good by the book werewolf movie that does a lot with a small cast. Some of the production values seem a little too sleek and some of the effects work haven't aged well but are cheesy enough to be fun. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
30. Uncaged (2016, 95 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ A buddy comedy where one is a werewolf and they get embroiled with a strange crime lord named Gonzo who is maybe more over the top than the werewolf. Covers werewolf legacy well with some cool family backstory but some of the character actors are awkward. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
31. The Disappointments Room (2016, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Enjoyable as a psychological minded drama rather than a horror film failing to generate scares but really nailing a theme of grief, I've heard negative things about Disappointments Room and can see how expecting scare factorwould be a letdown but I ended up enjoying it more than I expected. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
32. Demonic (2015, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Told mostly in reverse based around a supernatural crime scene involving some standard ghost imagery and some cringe worthy decisions from detectives. With so much going on in the past and present the pacing is good and at least one twist is interesting. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
32b. Ghost Patrol (2016, 47 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Roughly animated kids movie about a haunted house ghost prank turned true with kid friendly demons, it's under developed but held my kids' attention. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
33. The Wolf Man (1941, 70 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ A classic but I think I've seen it enough times that it doens't keep it's edge with me. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
34. Dark Signal (2016, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ A compelling mix of eccentric radio talk show segments, supernatural frights, and serial killings that hit the right notes for me. For me it was just eccentric and varied enough to work for my mood despite being a bit slow. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing

October 6 [Urban Legend / Folklore Theme Night] (9 hours, 44 minutes watched)
35. Candyman (1992, 99 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Epic scope with a great sense of supernatural menace with a great psychedelic horror cat/mouse escapade. The racial themes are interesting but sometimes seem to bleed into stereotypes and the Candyman mythos is awkwardly overemphasized (this is a pet peeve of mine, over explaining). Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
36. Urban Legends: Bloody Mary (2005, 97 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Generic themes with some elements that are predictable and generally forgettable. Bloody Mary is unmemorable and they seem to force the myth into a murder mystery supernatural thriller, which isn't really what Bloody Mary is (kind of like they just slapped the Bloody Mary idea onto a previous script which was itself an earlier version of some other movie we've all already seen). Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
37. Beyond the Gates (2016, 84 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ I really like some of the style in the movie and losing control of reality to be forced into a game idea is a promising idea, it's just that too little really happens - there are a few 'wtf' strange scenarios but it's a little slow paced and there isn't a big sense of threat. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
38. The Windmill (2016, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Great pseudo-slasher film that's not very original but pulls off what it does in an atmospheric and interesting way. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
39. Sennentuntschi (2010, 110 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Folksy and brutal with an unusual premise. Going back and forth in time with similar characters is sometimes confusing.Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme
40. Hounds of Love (2016, 108 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Nice cinematography and style with a slow burn tension that's more atmospheric than substance.Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing

October 7 [Hallucinatory / Nightmare Theme Night] (10 hours, 13 minutes watched)
41. Curandero (2005, 90 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Far out imagery that plunges into mysticism without much sense of subtley, immediately the son of a with doctor is enlisted by a surprisingly open police office to hunt down a satanic drug dealer and spiritual hallucinations kick up to 11 plaguing the rest of the film with a parade of imagery and a plot that moves along on the basis of whatever hallucinations show up. The visuals are often wild but so over the top and handled so casually it detracts. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
42. Visions (2015, 102 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ I'm a sucker for strange imagery and this worked well balancing tension and visual oddity but without breaking much new ground. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
[Irish Party Aid Double Feature - Grabbers & Shrooms]
43. Grabbers (2012, 94 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Meh. Cool grabber creature but the rest of the movie didn't really 'grab' me, for a film about an alcohol fueled fight for survival it's surprisingly subdued and small scale with characters who seem bland, like an underdeveloped low budget Shaun of the Dead spin. Format: Streaming [Hulu]. 1st Viewing Theme
44. Shrooms (2007, 86 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Occasionally cool visuals but the mushroom druggie theme seems pointless (the participants could has just as well walked into a haunted forest). Having participants engage in hallucinations seems to blunt the idea of a menace because it makes it easy to assume that everything is just a drug fueled fantasy.Format: Streaming [Vudu SD]. 1st Viewing Theme
45. Necrophobia (2013, 75 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Much more enjoyable than I expected about a twin who has strange visions after his brother dies with cool psychological elements. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
46. Caltiki the Immortal (1959, 76 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Neat scientific spin on monster mythis and I love the idea of Aztec mythology (but the background seems glossed over). Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing
47. The Hills Have Eyes (1977, 90 minutes) ★★★★★★★★★✰ Probably Wes Craven's most intelligent script. Format: Blu-ray.

October 8 [Zombie Theme Night] (10 hours, 8 minutes watched)
[Re-Animator Marathon]
48. Re-Animator [Integral Cut] (1985, 105 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ A classic with one of the most nutsy endings every. Format: Blu-ray. Theme
49. Bride of Re-Animator [Unrated Cut] (1990, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Great sequel with a clever concept but Dr Hill is an obnoxious character and while the body horror elements are fun the hypnotism bit is lame. Format: Blu-ray. Theme
50. Beyond Re-Animator (2003, 96 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ A lame rip off of the originals shot on obvious low budget with a script that stretches things by focusing too much on shallow characters and over explains the 'science.' A very awkward structure. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
51. The Rezort (2015, 93 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Jurassic Park with zombies and a Dead Island (island zombie video game) feel going for action horror in a way that's ultimately mediocre with just one cool plot twist. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
52. Here Alone (2016, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Meditative post apocalyptic drama using zombies as a catalyst for tragedy, I enjoyed it but it is slow paced and not outright horror. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
53. Train to Busan (2016, 118 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Fast paced zombie mayhem with some emotional gut punches. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset

October 9 [Female Director Theme Night] (8 hours, 50 minutes watched)
54. Raw (2016, 99 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Eerie slow burn buildup with lots of intense character driven moments, it's got a lot of partying for a horror movie and quite gruesome. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
55. XX (2017, 80 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Mostly subtle and strange premises that don't quite end up landing. Mystery is one thing but these stories seem to subtle to really sell frights, it seemed like a collection of mediocre outlandish tales told in a matter of face way without as much style and intentionally withholding some of the more in your face elements to a fault. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
56. Amer (2009, 90 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Strange mostly nonverbal segments of stopwatches, ants, and other impenetrable symbolism fill my screen in a tale that I think is about sexuality and the intensity of human interactions. I ended up enjoying it more than I expected to but nothing could have prepared me for how subtle and mysterious much of it is.Format: Streaming [Thanks to Alyxstarr!]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
57. Siren (2016, 82 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Not as sleazy or low brow as the premise of a seductress from a supernatural brothel would seem with supernatural oddities that are bizzare enough to keep things moving despite some questionable computer imagery. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing
58. #Horror (2015, 101 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ I can't decide if the movie is just too experimental and saavy that it's using horror as a metaphor but it's definitely over long. I feel like whatever commentary it's attempting about social media is mostly superficial. This movie has the most convincing preteen setup but maybe to a fault focusing so much on sleepover antics. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
59. Scooby Doo! Stage Fright (2013, 78 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ One of the better recent Scooby Doo movies with endless twists and a musical theme. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing

October 10 [1967/1992 AnniversaryTheme Night] (9 hours, 8 minutes watched)
60. House IV (1992, 94 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ A good blend of light hearted horror and silly comedy that hit the right notes for me despite not really seeming like a great movie generally speaking (slow at times, dated); I really enjoyed House IV but I'm not sure I can explain why. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme
61. Evolution (2015, 81 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ A masterpiece in cryptic atmospheric film making. Beautiful underwater photography sets the stage for the most unusual unsettling mysterious events. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
62. The Forgotten (2014, 89 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Ends up much better than I expected with a gritty emphasis on poverty (which sometimes comes across as forced) and an interesting final act; the initial setup is off putting with oddly empty set designs and a laborious setup. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
63. Highway to Hell (1992, 94 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ A cartoonish action comedy spin on the Orpheus myth with fun car races and a gnarly hell cop. It had a lot of great sight gags like the handcuffs, sex demon, claymation Cerberus dog, etc. The light hearted fast pace of Highway to Hell was refreshing. Format: Streaming [Thanks to Alyxstarr]. 1st Viewing
64. Yongary: Monster from the Deep[Mystery Science Theater 3K] (1967, 87 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ The creature itself was nicely dated b-movie fluff with amusing low quality effects but wow was it a chore to get there. I'm grateful for the MST3K edition, that made it somewhat better.. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
65. Boo! A Madea Halloween[Mystery Science Theater 3K] (2016, 103 minutes) ★½✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ My wife wanted to watch the Madea halloween movie, and I enjoy Halloween oriented shows - I just don't 'get' the Madea movies. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing

October 11 [Skull/Skeleton Art/Monster Theme Night] (5 hours, 33 minutes watched)
66. Crush the Skull (2015, 80 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ At first glance it looks like a cheap knockoff but it's actually a smartly made thriller with a refreshingly straight sense of humor (not overly silly). Tension is good with an intelligent script and there are a few interesting twists. An impressively clever film with an intelligent script despite some indie movie flaws. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
67. Holidays (2016, 105 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Curious assortment of holiday themed segments, mostly mediocre with a few taking risks - my favorites were Easter and New Year's. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
68. The Screaming Skull (1958, 68 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Slow going with a few nightmarish segments, the dated special effects were fun. Format: Streaming [Thanks Alyxstarr]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
69. The Devil's Candy (2015, 80 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ A slow burn with some nightmarish segments that boils over into an intense finale. Format: Streaming [Thanks Alyxstarr]. 1st Viewing

October 12 [Mummy Theme Night] (8 hours, 58 minutes watched)
70. Bubba Ho-Tep (2002, 92 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Seems relentlessly weird just for the sake of seeming 'cult,' but despite the oddball fake Elvis and black JFK the theme of a supernatural force feasting on nursing home residences is a smart idea. Some of the narration is especially clever and even the sillier concepts end up working ok. I wish the film wouldn't have spent so much of the first third focusing on fake Elvis and his backstory. Thematically the over exaggerated cartoonish characters work as examples of vitality in a field of death, but the films oversells it a little. Format: Blu-ray. Theme Subset
71. Demon Inside (2013, 93 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Gorey imagery and a confused point of view help this along to a clever twist. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
72. The Mummy (2017, 101 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Slick production design and special effects help this one along, it's not a great mummy movie with the mummy seeming like more of a plot device than main antagonist but it's serviceable action fantasy. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
73. Indigenous (2014, 86 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Typical jump scare teenagers partying fluff but with a unique ending and cool jungle environment. Some of the villain effects are distracting. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
74. Timewalker (1982, 83 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ The time walker mummy is a really interesting variant on mummies with a mythos that is especially interesting shoehorned into slasher and plague movie conventions. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing
75. Inside [Unrated] (2007, 83 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ An intense villain steals the show in a nicely paced film. Some of the still often cringe worthy gore hasn't aged well (especially not the CGI baby) and the parade of victims is over the top but a lot of fun. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing

October 13 [Friday 13th / Black Cats / Bad Luck Theme Night] (8 hours, 18 minutes watched)
76. Jason X (2001, 93 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ A really bizzare film that's just campy and low budget enough to be fun in a fan fiction sort of way. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
77. Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988, 112 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ This is one of my favorite F13th movies with the telekinetic girl and the birthday party teens, it's got some great kills and gruesome special effects - I watched it for checklist but especially enjoyed it. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
78. The Babysitter (2017, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Entertaining blend of comedy and gore with fast pacing that pulls off a change in tone from romantic comedy to a horror cat and mouse game well. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
79. Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986, 106 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ One of my favorite Friday the 13th movies, it's got a great opening and some good kills. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
80. Hotel Transylvania (2012, 92 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Hotel Transylvania is one of the better kid friendly seasonal movies to come out lately, I feel like I've seen it too much that I didn't enjoy it as much as I had before. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
81. Road Games (2015, 95 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Well executed mystery thriller with a great twist that's executed so well even if you can guess it in advance it's still entertaining. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing

October 14 [Splatter Gore Theme Night] (6 hours, 50 minutes watched)
82. Martyrs (2008, 103 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ A bizzare mix of brilliantly paced intense wtf first half that takes a nose dive in the second half with a twist so lame it dulls the movie. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme Subset
83. Cabin Fever (2002, 94 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Excellent theme of a strange gorey virus, some of the characters are too obnoxious. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
84. Audrey Rose (1977, 103 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Overly long for the content falling into a diluted battle to 'prove' reincarnation despite some pitfalls with the plotting it's executed stylishly with such stage presence it's still entertaining and the plot of very original. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing
85. The Sixth Sense (1999, 110 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ It took me a while to appreciate Sixth Sense at all, the 'twist' seems so immediately predictable and if you're patient there's some interesting themes are redemption from the afterlife that seem underdeveloped and the syrupy attempts at drama are so unconvincing. Format: Streaming [Netflix].

October 15 [Anthology Theme Night] (9 hours, 20 minutes watched)
86. Tales of Halloween (2015, 92 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Excellent anthology film with a spot on ghoulish vibe. I like more plentiful shorter segments in anthology films like this. Some of the crossover between segments was nice.. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. Theme Subset
87. ABCs of Death 2.5 (1995, 98 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Often lackluster segments many of which are so intentionally weird it comes off as more amateurish than zany. The thought of 26 out takes seemed like an interesting idea, but I can see why many of these weren't used. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
88. Tales from the Hood (1995, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Better than I expected twist of familiar tales with political context (this seem like Twilight Zone episodes). Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
89. Torture Garden (1967, 93 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Slow going anthology but well acted with some clever twists. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
90. Hocus Pocus (1993, 96 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ I don't think I've ever seen Hocus Pocus before but I really enjoyed it despite Bette Middler's overacting. It was cartoonish and atmospheric with just enough silly humor. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
91. Trick R Treat (2007, 83 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Slow going anthology but well acted with some clever twists. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme

October 16 [Fangoria / Video Watchdog Memorial Theme Night] (5 hours, 6 minutes watched)
92. Curse of Chucky[Unrated] (2013, 97 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Nice use of a small cast and scenes bathed in darkness. A few of the kills don't seem too staged but overall an impressive effort and return to form of straight horror. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
93. Ganja & Hess (1973, 110 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ I really like the strange upbeat vibe with the tribal/religious music and nearly every scene bathed in sun. The modern atypical vampire approach is really cool. Sometimes the music seemed repetitive (especially the 'oh hosana' one). While it was stylish I'm not sure I understand a lot of the religious symbolism embedded in the movie (maybe a longing for redemption) but there seem to be some deeper themes. Format: Blu-ray. Theme Subset
94. Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 (2000, 99 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ I enjoyed BoS when it first came out but it hasn't aged well, the twist is still interesting but so much of the content is too subtle to the point of seeming like characters are just shuffling around the setting acting scared or unsure rather than any sense of plot development. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme

October 17 [Friends - Good, Bad, or Imaginary Theme Night] (7 hours, 54 minutes watched)
95. Pin (1988, 103 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ The Leon character does creepy well. It's an interesting scenario with the sister seeming to be like a hostage in her own home to her brother and an anatomical dummy. Format: Streaming [thanks to Alyxstarr]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
96. Alucarda (1978, 78 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Alcudarda is such a bizzare combination of hammy overacting, religious satire, provocative imagery, sleaze, and low production values. I can't tell if the poor acting (especially the priest) is so awesomely satirical or just a happy accident. It is a lurid and the finale is nicely chaotic really delivering. Tina Romero has got one heck of a bug eyed gaze. Format: Streaming [thanks to Alyxstarr]. Theme Subset
97. Dolls (1987, 78 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ I especially like Dolls, this is at least the third time I've seen it and it holds up. The pacing on Dolls is expect with so little being revealed for much of the run time using atmosphere hinting at more going on. The musical score is especially effective and the old couple are well acted. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme Subset
98. The Revenant (2009, 118 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ A soldier who strangely wakes up after being dead a month hungry for blood and uses his undead status to become a vigilante gunslinger with his best friend as the thrill of things and the consequences of undeath spiral out of control - I think it's a worthy and too often overlooked vampire-ish film with a modern spin on horror conventions.. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
99. The Initiation (1984, 97 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Parts of it seem overly familiar but the mall scene is great and while it's slow at times with a mostly disposable mystery of explaining nightmares there are some gruesome first person perspective kills and camera gimmicks that work. I've heard a lot of recommendations for this and it was a good slasher but I don't think it lived up to the hype in my head. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme Subset

October 17 [Pregnancy Theme Night] (7 hours, 28 minutes watched)
100. Seeding of a Ghost [Zhong Gui] (1983, 88 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ It's clear these Shaw Brothers films were made to entertain and what I've seen has delivered with some great low budget visual and an end that is top notch. I love the dark cartoonishness of the film. Format: Streaming [thanks to Alyxstarr]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
101. Shelley (2016, 92 minutes) ★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Subtle psychological build up - I did not enjoy Shelley (2016), it's so slow moving and too subtle for my taste, but directed artfully enough that I feel guilty not liking it. The camera aspect ratio felt a little zoomed in and that seemed disoriented. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
102. Residue (2017, 82 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Lured in by obvious Lovecraft ripoffs and a lurid looking cover image I found an aimless fantasy horror with a lot of strange people loitering around watching someone read a book that included occasional hallucinatory imagery. The Max Headroom and Smoking Man (X-files) actors give it some gravitas but it's ultimately passable unless you're hard up for cryptic character driven fantasy fluff. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
103. The Unborn (2009, 89 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Not bad for a PG13 commercialized horror film with some unrelenting imagery and a silly amount of twists and mythos invention. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. Theme
104. The Transfiguration (2016, 97minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ The pacing is a little slow because it's a mood piece for most of the run time but despite that I especially enjoyed it. It's sort of like Moonlight for closeted deranged vampire film lovers, just the right amount of macabre twist in a gritty urban tale. Format: Streaming [Netflix].

October 19 [Supernatural Theme Night] (0 hours, 0 minutes watched)
105. Under the Shadow (2016, 84 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ Usually political/social allegories are hard to pull off because equating something fantastic to something political can seem forced but it works well here. I wonder if there's any cultural themes I might have missed not being as familiar with Iran and Iraq much less in the 1980s. At first I thought this would be more about the bomb but a good slow burn horror with better than average depth and an interesting setting. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
106. Ghostwatch (1992, 91 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ I've heard good things & it delivers. There's a good attention to detail with small touches that no one ever references just left for viewers to see and wonder. Nicely paced television special feel with charismatic anchors and enough moving pieces to keep things entertaining offering tidbits of the story in a convincing way. They can just throw whatever at the audience through telephone call ins, research data, or house footage. Format: Streaming [thanks to Alyxstarr]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
107. The Presence (2010, 87 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ The main attraction is a small castle environment that provides a backdrop for cameras filling with static, leering night vision shots of with jarring musical cues over nothing, and a bump of strange knocking on the wall... it's a cheap Blair Witch knockoff that fails to sustain (Blair Witch is a personal favorite, I usually go for this stuff but Presence is a letdown). Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
*****Personal note that I stopped some stats tracking here, need to resume later after 107 for individual items or at 10/19 for day totals*****
108. The Darkness (2016, 93 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ For a film with 3% approval on Rotten Tomatoes it's about what I expected; the ghosts are a really cool idea just under utilized and this comes across like a poor man's Poltergeist. The film has a 'special needs' kid which I found to be an offensive plot device. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
109. The Hatred (2017, 100 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Backstory heavy with an awkward catalyst and large periods where nothing especially happens then crams much of the "scares" into the final third (the trailer ruins most of them anyway). Some of the imagery doesn't make sense (like the gas mask) but there are a few effective moments among those not marred by bad computer imagery. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme

October 20 [Vampire Theme Night] (0 hours, 0 minutes watched)
110. Summer of Blood (2014, 86 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Awkward dry observational humor, I appreciate the adult social themes but it's not especially funny and some characters are inconsistent - sort of if Woody Allen made a vampire movie. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
111. Midnight Son (2011, 89 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ Moody modern vampire film about a security guard who develops a sun allergy and taste for blood, he tried to balance his normal but isolated existence with the vampire needs. Well acted with crime thriller elements and dramatic chops. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
112. Stake Land (2010, 96 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Scenic and action packed with a country western edge and sober plot that has a man against the world feel. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. Theme
113. Scooby Doo! and the Witch's Ghost (1999, 77 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Some of the better twists with Scooby Doo, The Hex Girls provide some upbeat music and the witch ghost is fun. Format: Streaming [Vudu SD].
114. The Visit (2015, 94 minutes) ★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Nonsensical setup with a twist that makes equally little sense and characters that are obnoxious, I'm surprised people keep giving Shyamalya money to make movies. There are some occasionally creepy moments but it takes some patience. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
115. Blood of Irina (2012, 70 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Musically driven with no words but leering shots of landscapes and women staring off to represent vampirism, written and directed by a composer who favors audio cues with only very rare narration from a strange robotic voice. I appreciate how experimental this is but it's not very good and is painfully dull. I was going to watch it's sequel also but cannot bring myself too do so right now. There are some queasy shots of blood that worked. Format: Blu-ray. Theme
116. Lips of Blood (1975, 88 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Strange dream like imagery with a plot that doesn't quit make sense until everything comes together; it was initially frustrated but once it gels really a good film that is such a perfect blend of odd low production and artistry. Format: Blu-ray. Theme

October 21 ['Media Home Entertainment' Video Company Theme Night] (0 hours, 0 minutes watched)
117. Day of the Dead (1985, 103 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ A smart continuation of the series asking some interesting questions about the new zombie post apocalypse in a claustrophobic mine environment. Characters mostly seem one dimensional to a fault but some of the special effects especially shine. Format: Blu-ray. Theme Subset
118. Sharknado (2013, 86 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Ok popcorn fluff that's more fantasy action than horror, it was better than I expected and for a shameless mix of no budget effects and action. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
119. Girl House (2014, 101 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Slow going at first and overall not as sleazy as you'd expect, it's a respectable modern slasher than delivers and has a creepy menacing villain smartly using cameras and modern voyeurism with some nods at gender politics that are interesting. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
120. I Drink Your Blood [Director's Cut] (1970, 89 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Nicely graphic but some of the characters are so cheesy and cartoonish in a way that was jarringly inconsistent with the tone of the violence. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme
121. House on Willow Street (2016, 90 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Smart possession movie with an interesting backstory and a demon that has more depth than just frights; balances parody (flashbacks to priests that seem semi-serious or overly theatrical) well with tension. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing
122. Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986, 101 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ The balance of upbeat and gorey works amazingly well most of the time and it's artistically directed. The movie is fun and sort of lighthearted (despite the killings and all) then bam it gets gorey and tense. Sometimes the 'humor' doesn't quite work and detracts some from the film (some of the over acting is to a fault).Format: Blu-ray [Original 'Gruesome Edition' MGM release] Subset
123. It Runs in the Family [Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 Making Of] (2006, 87 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ General background, some of it self congratulatory - not as in depth as I'd hoped but some interesting tales about set designl. Format: Blu-ray [Original 'Gruesome Edition' MGM release] 1st Viewing Subset
124. The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016, 86 minutes) ★★★★★★★★★✰ Cryptic and eerie with nicely built up frights and an very unusual premise. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX] 1st Viewing

Re: The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa

Mr. Cellophane's 13th Annual Horror Challenge List



"Searchers after horror haunt strange, far places." - H.P. Lovecraft

*= first time viewing
blue= personal BluRay
dark red= personal DVD
green= streaming
orange= theatrical presentation
purple= borrowed or rented BD/DVD

September 30th (after dusk)
1. Cujo (Lewis Teague, 1983 / United States / Hulu)*
Would I survive? While I'm cautious around dogs, I'm also pretty slow and not great with heat. Without a little kid acting as plot amour, Cujo definitely rips into my leg before going for my throat. Verdict: DEAD BY DOG

2. Kwaidan (Masaki Koboyashi, 1964 / Japan) --- Criterion Crossover
Would I survive? 1) I'm not an ambitious asshole, so I survive. 2) I'm not that handsome so the Woman freezes my ass. 3) Yeah, I'm screaming if someone rips off my ears. I'm toast. 4) My first inclination is not to stab ghosts but to befriend ghosts. I'm fine. Verdict: TWICE DEAD. TWICE ALIVE.

October 1st
3. Salem's Lot (Tobe Hooper, 1979 / United States)* --- Theme Movie
Would I survive? I would want to abandon town at the first sign of trouble, but I would sincerely believe that I could help bring down the vampires. I would be wrong. Armed with a cross and a bag of books, I'd join the motley crew of hunters and make it to the third act but... Verdict: DEAD BEFORE THE FINAL CONFRONTATION

4. The Ghoul (T. Hayes Hunter, 1933 / United Kingdom / AmazonPrime)*
Would I survive? This film plays by Miss Prism's rules of fiction: the good end happily and the bad end unhappily. I fancy myself to be good enough not to rob a dead Egyptologist's grave. Verdict: ALIVE!

5. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (Tobe Hooper, 1974 / United States / AmazonPrime)* --- Theme Movie
Would I survive? I guess I can take some solace in the fact that I won't be the first person to die at the hands of Leatherface. That honor will go to a horny couple. I bite it when I go off alone to find my missing friends. I know - dumb move. Verdict: DEAD, DISMEMBERED, (HOPEFULLY) DELICIOUS

6. The Strange Door (Joseph Pevney, 1951 / United States)
Would I survive? When I receive the invitation to a wedding from the deplorable de Maletroit, I know I must go, but I am not happy about it. I attend, find the whole affair grotesque, and return home. Verdict: INCONSEQUENTIAL AND ALIVE!

October 2nd
7. RiffTrax: The Bermuda Triangle (Rene Cardona Jr., 1978 / Mexico / AmazonPrime)*
Would I survive? I guess I would disappear randomly into the fog or die off-screen or fade away to be with "The Others" at some point. Who the hell knows what happens in the freakin' Bermuda Triangle. At least no one has to hear my bad, dubbed voice anymore. Verdict: DEAD AND PISSED OFF!

8. Suspiria (Dario Argento, 1977 / Italy / Regal HorrorFest)
Would I survive? With madmen running around and razor wire lying about, what's an aspiring Billy Elliott to do? Leave when maggots start raining down from the ceiling. Forget the mystery. Forget that poor dead girl. I'm out. Verdict: ALIVE BUT TRAUMATIZED

9. The Blob (Irvin S. Yeaworth Jr. & Russell S. Doughten Jr., 1958 / Untied States) --- Theme Movie
Would I survive? Naturally squeamish around sticky substances, I'm not going to touch or investigate a titular blob. After surviving the theater attack, I leave things to the authorities. Not courageous but sensible. Verdict: ALIVE

October 3rd
10. Curse of the Crimson Altar (Vernon Sewell, 1968 / United Kingdom / AmazonPrime)*
Would I survive? Amazingly, I do. Despite having information about the situation that the protagonists need to foil the obvious villain, I somehow survive to the lackluster end. It's not really a accomplishment. Verdict: ALIVE AND A BIT MIFFED ABOUT IT

11. The Cat o' Nine Tails (Dario Argento, 1971 / Italy / AmazonPrime)* --- Theme Movie
Would I survive? Here's a film where knowing too much can get you killed. As an inquisitive person, I won't be able to stop investigating the murders. I can feel the rope tightening around my neck! Verdict: DEAD BY STRANGULATION

12. House of Wax (Andre de Toth, 1953 / United States) --- Theme Movie
Would I survive? I find wax figures very, very disturbing. I agree to go with my friends, and while I don't quite buy Sue's insistence that something is wrong with the figures, it's enough for me to disappear from the film midway through. Verdict: ALIVE AND HAVING TEA AT HOME

October 4th
13. Mad Monster Party? (Jules Bass, 1967 / United States / Alyxstarr link)* --- Subset Film
Would I survive? I hear Phyllis Diller sing. I jump out the window. Verdict: DEAD

14. Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (Terence Fisher, 1969 / United Kingdom)
Would I survive? When the mad doctor first arrives and uncovers my dastardly secret, I think I could possibly make it to the end. Alas, my misdeeds and complicity are my undoing, and I die of a small bullet wound oozing tempera paint. Verdict: DEAD BY DOCTOR

October 5th
15. Stranger Things: 1.1, "Chapter One: The Vanishing of Will Byers" / 1.2, "Chapter Two: The Weirdo on Maple Street" (2016 / Netflix Instant)
16. Monster Madness: The Golden Age of the Horror Film (Jeff Herberger, 2014 / United States / AmazonPrime)* --- documentary

17. The Eyes of My Mother (Nicolas Pesce, 2016 / United States / Netflix)*
Would I survive? Look, I thought I was in an art film. I thought I was going home with a nice - if eccentric - woman to have some tea. Then shit went sideways. Verdict: DEAD AND BAGGED

October 6th
18. Stranger Things: 1.3, "Chapter Three: Holly, Jolly" / 1.4, "Chapter Four: The Body" (2016 / Netflix Instant)
19. Stranger Things: 1.5, "Chapter Five: The Flea and the Acrobat" / 1.6, "Chapter Six: The Monster" (2016 / Netflix Instant)

October 7th
20. Night Monster (Ford Beebe, 1942 / United States)
Would I survive? Okay, I would definitely accept the invitation to see supernatural stuff at a large mansion. However, once people started dying, I would insist on never being left alone. Of course, movies have a way of separating people... so I would be a second act casualty. Verdict: ALONE AND DEAD

21. The Other (Robert Mulligan, 1972 / United States)*
Would I survive? There's an evil child running around and murdering people! I'm oblivious to the evil and never confront the child. I'd survive but be devastated by the death and destruction plaguing our farm. Verdict: ALIVE AND DESPONDENT

22. Mindwarp (Steve Barnett, 1992 / United States)* --- Theme Movie
Would I survive? Yeah, I don't have the fortitude to survive in a post-apocalyptic hellscape. There are mutants running about and harmful radiation (perhaps - it's not entirely certain) permeating everything. I don't make it past the first twenty minutes. Verdict: DEAD AND UNBURIED

October 8th
23. Night of the Living Deb (Kyle Rankin, 2015 / United States / Netflix)* --- Theme Movie
Would I survive? Well, I usually drink quite a bit on the 4th of July and hydrate on filtered tap water. So while I show up as sassy gay friend in the opening bar scene, I'll be munching on human flesh when Deb finds me later. Verdict: ZOMBIFIED

24. Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead (Kiah Roache-Turner, 2014 / Australia)* --- Theme Movie
Would I survive? If I couldn't handle a zombie rom-com, I cannot outrun these fast hellions. I'm easy fodder for the zombie hordes, and if I'm really unlucky, I'll be experimented on by a sadistic doctor. Verdict: SMASH CUT! - ZOMBIFIED!

October 10th
25. Voodoo Man (William Beaudine, 1944 / United States / YouTube)*
Would I survive? Women are mysteriously disappearing, and generic people are on the hunt. After running across pertinent information, I'll be held hostage by the mad doctor until being rescued in the last three minutes. Verdict: ALIVE

26. Yongary, Monster from the Deep (Ki-duk Kim, 1967 / South Korea / English dub) --- Subset Film
Would I survive? It's really difficult to get killed in this era of kaiju film. After a frantic evacuation, I meet up with my chemist friend and basically stand around, listening to science-babble. Later, I make an impassioned speech to leave Yongary alive and am shouted down by a zealous general. Verdict: ALIVE

27. A Field in England (Ben Wheatley, 2013 / United Kingdom / DVD)*
Would I survive? Since I'm also out-of-shape and working in the lower rungs of academia, I empathized with the assistant alchemist at the center of this film. I would make a lot of the same decisions and end up also watching Melancholia in the sky. Verdict: ALIVE AND SUPER HIGH

October 11th
28. The Four Skulls of Jonathan Drake (Edward L. Cahn, 1959 / United States / AmazonPrime)* --- Theme Movie
Would I survive? Shrunken heads! Exotic occultism! I'm so not ready for all this possibly racist zaniness. As one of the cagier members of my family, I'm pretty sure I'm the nervous one who gets bumped off at the beginning to establish the situation. Verdict: DEAD AND BEHEADED

October 12th
29. Christine (John Carpenter, 1983 / United States)
Would I survive? I'm not a car guy. I drive a Prius. I love my Prius. I think it is awesome. Thankfully, it's not evil or particularly possessive, so I think I make it out of this okay. Verdict: HYBRID AND ALIVE

October 13th
30. Robot Monster (Phil Tucker, 1953 / United States / AmazonPrime)*
Would I survive? Thankfully, I died before this silly affair begins - one of the nameless vaporized millions. If I was super lucky, I didn't even see a Ro-Man before my atoms came apart. Verdict: HAPPILY DEAD

31. The Mummy (Karl Freund, 1932 / United States)
Would I survive? I jumped at a chance to go on expedition to Egypt. Unfortunately, a murderous mummy seems to be on the loose! I'm a resourceful guy and am pretty sure that I wouldn't wonder about alone. Verdict: ALIVE

32. Stranger Things: 1.7, "Chapter Seven: The Bathtub" / 1.8, "Chapter Eight: The Upside Down" (2016 / United States / Netflix)

October 14th
33. Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (Freddie Francis, 1965 / United Kingdom)
Would I survive? Well, the very conceit ensures that I don't make it to my destination. Drats. On the plus side, I get to bore everyone with my knowledge of tarot! Verdict: DEAD AND ANNOYING

34. The Haunting (Robert Wise, 1963 / United States)
Would I survive? Sensitive and neurotic, I would definitely accept the invitation, knowing that there are no such things as ghosts. Unfortunately, the house calls to me. It needs me to stay. They want me to go, but I mustn't. I mustn't. Verdict: POSSESSED AND DEAD

October 15th
35. Black Sabbath (Mario Bava, 1963 / Italy / AIP version) --- Theme Movie
Would I survive? 1) I would leave the ring and survive! Don't steal from the dead! 2) Responding to my dear friend's hysteria, I don't notice the footsteps behind me until it's too late. 3) I'd have a hard time surviving the cold, much less the freaking vampires! Dead. Verdict: SURVIVED ONCE TO DIE TWICE

36. The Color Out of Space (Huan Vu, 2010 / Germany / AmazonPrime)*
Would I survive? Like any good Lovecraft protagonist, I followup every lead to track down my missing father. I hear to horrific stories about a cursed farm and investigate, finding horrors beyond compare. Changed forever, I rush away. Verdict: ALIVE AND HAUNTED

October 16th
37. Creature from the Haunted Sea (Roger Corman, 1961 / United States / AmazonPrime)*
Would I survive? Imitations of animal calls. Cuban stereotypes. I barely manage to survive by briskly walking away from the monster. I know I'm suppose to be amused, but I'm not laughing. Verdict: ALIVE

October 17th
38. Mama (Andy Muschietti, 2013 / Canada)* --- Theme Movie

Re: The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa

Sept 30th
1). Eating Raoul
B-1). Coop: OKtoberfest
2). Commentary For
Eating Raoul
B-2). Samuel Adams: Harvest Hefe
(1982) (Blu-Ray)
(Oklahoma)
(1982) (Blu-Ray) (FTV)
(Massachusetts) (FTD)
My Thoughts: It's a wonder what presentation will do for your enjoyment of a movie. The first time I watched this was on DVD on a laptop now on Blu-Ray on my 4k tv it's like night and day! I think the collective opinion of The Killer Tongue would take quite the boost from a better presentation. Mary Woronov & Paul Bartel are an odd ball down on their luck couple who turn to murder for money after about half a dozen people try to rape Mary. It's a bizarre black comedy where all the murders are "justified" due to the victims status as perverts. Not a laugh out loud comedy as much as a look at these weird people type of affair. I like it but I can't really envision any situation where I would be recommending it to others. "Oh Paul, do you think you could buy another frying pan? I am just a bit squeamish about cooking in the one we are using to kill people."

(4 out of 5)
My Thoughts: A nice smooth mellow beer with a heavy caramel/barley Finnish. There is a slight hoppy bitter aftertaste. Not a bad beer though. A slightly better showing for this year for this Oklahoma based beverage. I must note that I enjoyed this only slightly chilled as I found out in previous years that it presents better that way.

(3 out of 5)


My Wife's Taste: Ohh, whats that? Oh, you going to write down that? Very fruity but thin, almost like added the water beer. Taste like beginners beer, I can drink maybe 3 or 4 cans.
My Thoughts: Initially I was disappointed that they didn't get Mary Woronov to participate but this turned into quite an interesting star-less track. Lots of great remembrances here about how they scammed Cannes and working on other low budget films. Of course the most interesting asides were stores about the leads. Such as how Paul would pretend that he and Mary were married much to her chagrin. "Every time he does that, his sex life gets better and mine gets worse" is something that is going to stay stuck in my head from this track. Another thing that was surprisingly entertaining was other unproduced scripts that the writer had written. Things like Franken-Car where a father builds his dead son into a car and even a sequel to Eating Raoul!

(4 out of 5)
My Thoughts: A very leafy, unrefined hops aroma on top. There is a very odd taste to this one, barley mixed with grapefruit.. maybe? Has a tart fruity finish but then you are hit with that more seasonally traditional cinnamon and nutmeg. As it warms it takes on notes of squash and liquorish. It kind of feels like a beer having an identity crisis. A summer ale desperately trying to stay relevant in fall. Really to have a decent beer you have to be one of two things; delicious or interesting. This was interesting.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste: No fuzz. Smells like cleaning supply. Taste not bad but it's not... its like... open the beer and forgets about it it seems. means day old beer, just cold. The you keep drinking taste become weird.
Oct 1st
3). The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2
4). It
5). Commentary For
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2
6.) Monstroid
[/COLOR]
(1986) (DVD)
(2017) (Theater) (FTV)
(1986) (DVD)
(1980) (DVD) (FTV)
My Thoughts: Hey, its one of my very first DVD upgrades. Made more than 10 years after the original, this direct sequel has The Family moved out of the farm house and into an abandoned amusement park. This is the only real sequel to The Texas Chainsaw massacre everything else is just a remake or a reboot (Except maybe Texas Chainsaw 3D). And it is quite different in style to the original. The original being more psychological hell-scape where this one we actually see everything that everyone thought they saw in the original, a very Dante's Inferno and/or Halloween megastore feel. Dennis Hopper plays kinfolk of the wheelchair bound victim from the first movie, who's body they decided to relocate with them for some reason, and he is out for revenge on the chainsaw wielding family. It's a super schlocky 80's horror movie that and if you can get in the right mood a fun one as well.

(3.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Inevitably, like every other review for It you will see, I will be mainly comparing this with the original. This was technically the better movie, the stakes felt more real. Even though the movie, like its predecessor, is a string of near misses you feel like the kids are actually in danger this time. They get cut, they get bit, they get thrown around, the creepy father is the rape-y father, the clown is scary. But that was also one of my major complaints. Tim curry could make the clown likable, even though it was obvious he was just pretending. This time they decided that even while trying to entice that he should be deranged, there is no way Georgie in this version would reach in for his boat after the way Pennywise was acting. The story didn't include he adult part of the novel, which was a good idea considering that was the weakest part of the original mini series, but it did leave it open for an adult sequel. It was a really good movie and I legit jumped quite a few times. And even though it might be not my favorite King adaptation it probably is the best one to date.

(4.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Given todays theme I thought it would only appropriate to watch the Tobe Hooper audio commentary for TCM2. While I am sure that I have listened to it before nothing really struck me as retread here. Tobe had a gravely voice and its a pleasure listening to him narrate. He goes way way into character specifics that no one would have ever known in an interesting universe expansion way. But by far the most interesting part of this commentary was Hooper talking about how real skeletons where actually cheaper to buy then plastic ones and how most of the skeletons in the movie were real. And guess where from? Fucking India! God I want there to be some sort of documentary about the Indian skeleton farms of the 1980's, all of Hollywood seems to have used them! One nit pick though is that there is too much silence here about 1/8th or so of the time is spent watching the movie as opposed to commentating on it, otherwise this track would have garnered another extra half star.

(3.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: A terrible rubber monster movie who's burden is made about half a star better by it's titillating host; Elvira. Polluted runoff from a concrete factory (how much pollution can the creation of concrete really yield?) creates a lake monster that terrorizes and eats people from the small Columbian village where this movie is set. It's an 80's made, 50's style monster movie that is only mildly interesting due to being set in Columbia. Aside from that and Elvira there is no other redeeming quality to this property.

(2 out of 5)
B-3). Dogfish Head: Punkin Ale
7). House By The Cemetery
(Delaware) (FTD)
(1981) (DVD)
My Thoughts: I have been wanting to drink this for years. Purportedly one of the first pumpkin beers, Dogfish Head’s Pumkin Ale is not as weird as their brand image might convey. It had a pleasant floral, dare I say fall, scent on top. The beer its self starts light and then thickens and becomes more complex on your pallet. Starts with a super mild, almost imperceptible amount of nutmeg and a hint of pumpkin and finishes with an unusual peppery bitterness on the back of the tongue. It’s quite a palatable beer but I really want my pumpkin beers to slap me in the face with either pumpkin or pumpkin spice flavoring. Good but not distinctive enough for the brand, can’t really see myself buying this over Midis Touch outside of a challenge review situation.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste: Creamy. Very easy to drink. Light flavor. I like it.
My Thoughts: Boobs in the first 30 seconds, thats how you know Mr. Fulci is a pro. This is your classic, or maybe not so classic, haunted house rift. A couple with a small child (the blond Italian kid that is in every Italian horror movie in the early 80s), move into a mysteriously troubled house. The man is tasked to pick up the work of the previous tenant who went crazy there, there is some Shinning-esk kids stuff and the big question is; whats in the basement? These American set Italian movies always feel a bit weird with their peculiar dubbing but I have come to appreciate it over the years, it adds a certain ambiance. Also man I feel like I am never going to be able to afford a house like this at this rate. Does one really get good deals on murder houses I wonder? Anyway back to the movie, it has an excellent creepy/mysterious vibe, over the top gore and is a great example of Fulci's work. For those who have seen it recently I wonder why the nanny was so weird? You get the vibe that she is in on everything and then that thing happens in the basement...

My Thoughts: This poorly acted, low budget, nostalgia cash grab is nearly saved by it's plot and filming location. After their father disappears two brothers reunite to close down their dads video rental store. While boxing up the merchandise they stumble upon a weird VCR board game in get sucked into a Jumanji like battle for their very souls. The video store (or more likely the private collection) they use to film in is a fascinating back drop and I liked Barbara Crampton's involvement even if they didn't give her that great of dialog. The art direction, or lack their of, of the board game and the caliber of the rest of the move are just lacking to much for this to have a decent score. This exact plot, done better though would be highly watchable.

My Thoughts: I gave serious thought to buying the Scream factory releases of Poltergeist 2 & 3. Maybe if the had been in the same set. But separately at $20 a piece I had to pass for the bare bones blu-ray $5 set. Now maybe if they come out with the 40+ minute longer cut of Poltergeist 2, then we can talk. I have always liked how this was a next day sequel. Things just keep going awry for Freeling family. One of things about this movie is it almost feels like you are watching an extended deleted ending from the first movie. It is so similar in tone. No reinvention here, give us more of the same household items going crazy and messed up hallucinations. And that is one of the reasons it could never live up to the original, also old guys at the mall aren't that scary. I did love the family dealing the insurance implications of a paranormal house implosion, the Taylor and the car subplot and a very good reason to never swallow the worm. One thing I noticed while watching this is that there was sooo sooo much overlap with Insidious, like a lot. Homage? Cultural zeitgeist? I always liked this one the least as a kid but as an adult I am worming up to it.

My Thoughts: That opening score is very assaulting on the nerves, I suppose the idea is to be disorienting so that you can feel a bit drunk like the woman on screen. First off, big thanks to GoldenWheels as this was part of a prize I won a challenge or two back and not something I would have ever bought for myself (so, thank you for broadening my challenge). This movie is set in France just after the Bluebeard murders and centers around a doctor who has his deformed lobotomized man servant killing women so that he can use their skin to fix his burnt daughter. The main bill here is split with the detective who is trying to solve the case. the movie is a little by the numbers but entertaining. One thing that stuck out to me (and which I have undoubtably mentioned before in previous reviews) is I love this old style European architecture and furniture, everything looks so classy. Makes me want to build a castle. Although that would probably scream "rob me, rob me, please rob me". One other peculiarity was how much nudity there was in this black and white film, nothing excessive but it is so weird to see breasts in black and white like that. I guess it is a 1960's film. Anyway decent watch and cheers to GoldenWheels.

My Thoughts: I typically love these historical infotainment critic tracks. This track, narrated by a writer for the now defunct Video Watchdog, is chocked full of information about Jess Franco, the other Dr. Orlof movies and Early European horror in general. Until now I didn't even know that Orlof was a Django-esk thing, I was under the impression that this was a one and done. Unfortunately though as I as this is a side of horror that I don't really know much about and have less interest in then slightly more contemporary euro horror I found it hard to connect to the source material. Technically a good track and the guy had a decent voice but I just personally found the material not that compelling.

My Thoughts: WTF? That movie was an introverts nightmare. And coincidentally exactly how I feel every time my wife has over more than 3 friends. This movie is just so uncomfortable. You get to hate these people, you get just a little relief and then things go off the fucking rails. I don't even know how to do a plot intro this, outside of saying; Jennifer Lawrence is renovating an old house with her writer husband when people ruin everything. The term orgy of destruction is something I wanted to use in this review but I am too over this property to care. I feel like Peter Griffin saying "it insist upon it's self" when thinking about the message or the thought/emotion that this property is trying to convey. I was going to grade it a 3 out of 5 but I begrudgingly have to give it a half star for making me feel, that in it's self is a notable accomplishment. Even if I didn't like what it made me feel.

My Thoughts: After the diatribe from our local troll I decided a TV show would be in order for my next viewing. I was a bit apprehensive of this MTV produced outing but was quite pleasantly surprised when it hit all the notes of a good slasher movie. I liked all the characters and the 10 episode length really let us develop feeling for them and I gotta admit I was thrown when they revealed the killer at the end of the season. The self referential Jamie Kennedy stand in was spot on and a shoe in for a young Topher Grace. I liked the way how intrigue texting and social media were to the plot but they misstepped her a little too having it all be some weird fake platforms. Surly Line and Snapchat and whatever else would have been quick to agree to anything for MTV to use them. Also in reality all of those kids would be vaping, constantly. It is all high school kids do. There were few nagging things here or there, like tons of abandoned building that all seemed to still have power, but in the end it was all forgivable. But the one big hiccup for this show was the sleep deprivation/hallucination/ghosts giving me clues episode. Cut that out and this is a solid 4/5 with peaks in the 4.5 range (episode dependent). All and all I am glad I watched it. And I will be catching season 2.

My Thoughts: Starts with an overly floral hoppy scent then turns into an interesting trick beer. Starts like an IPA and as you are prepping for that style of bitter after bite it turns into a surprisingly delicious caramel marzen. Every sip feels like its going to break that mold but it is consistently complex. I like this one. For transparency, I must admit to having lost this bottle last year and having found it to drink for this year. The extra year of aging could have potentially affected the flavor. Annnnd after looking at last years review (with was awful) I definitely suggest storing this beer for a least a year before you actually drink it. It's weird how something like that could affect the taste so so much. Beer, unlike spirits, is always changing in the bottle.

My Thoughts: I wanted to like this movie but I just couldn't connect to it. Perhaps I was just 15 years late to the party and if I had seen it before Cloverfield... I mean obviously there is a fanbase here as a sequel was made. This movie is set in a post alien contamination situation i.e. The Mist. It is contained to the country of Mexico with a large Trump-ian wall protecting the states. A couple of Americans miss the last boat out and have to travel through the contamination zone to get home. There is a forced romantic connection between the two leads, the effects are not that great and the art direction is very lets make glowing octopi. Still there are moments here and there of the two exploring abandoned cities that are highly effective. But overall as a first time view today, it was just meh.

My Thoughts: As with most sequels, this did not quite live up to the original. There was a bit too much repeat, everyone has a secret that makes them look guilty and they are always showing up randomly "____ why are you here?" It kept it interesting enough though and frequently was good. Did enjoy all the horror references, the blackmail of a main character in the first act was quite effective too. But if felt like it dragged a little this time too. I was thinking to myself around episode eight, this is it, tie it off and put a bow on it. Also the big reveal this time felt forced and didn't quite add up. One thing I really enjoyed about this season though is they took the last two episodes and made it essentially a sequel movie. It was it's own little story... actually I guess they pretty much did I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, taking the survivors and trapping them on an island with a new killer. But it was fun to have some more time with these characters and it didn't drag. Those last 2 episodes were 80 well oiled minutes. Season 3 is set to be a reboot but I have watched so much of this in the last few days that I don't think I really care about this universe without our main characters, in fact I am a little slasher'd out (watching what equates to 12 slasher movies here in this last little bit. I think something a little less real is in order.

My Thoughts: Hey, it actually smells like pumpkin (not pumpkin spice but actual pumpkin). Hard to describe the flavor on this one. It starts out like a liquored up concoction made with non0sweet old-fashioned candies. And then it has a very smooth finish that comes back and hits yo with this peppery wasabi pear after bite. Digging the uniqueness on this one.

(4 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Delicious white great and wheat scent almost too aromatic though, kind of like a fabric softener. Starts smooth and then hits you with a surprising mid and back of mouth bitterness. Very heavy barley on the aftertaste, almost over bearing so. I had one of these pre-challenge and I really liked it so I am going to reserve judgment until I have another. Post beer 2: ok it’s working a little better now, still have that odd lingering barley taste but I am much more ok with it at this point. Still further investigation is required though. Post beer 3: Well, it taste much better now even though it taste the same. I suppose it was not as great as I had originally thought maybe it was just beer 2 or 3 for that day. Passable but nothing special with this fake german beer.

(3 out of 5)
My Thoughts: It's not good. But you knew when you saw Sandlers name attached to it that it wouldn't be. Visually it looked great, the 3D popped and it has tons of monsters in it. But man, the execution... lowest common denominator type stuff. Frankenstein farting. I think of another recent kids movie in this genre; Paranorman, which was amazing. And it just makes me so sad for this property. And that this made like four times as much as Paranorman. It had the money and the visual appeal to be great. If only any other studio had made it, any other studio. Almost a 2 out of 5 but I gave it another half star because my eyeball liked it. Very disappointing though. I probably should have saved this to watch with my daughter, as at 2 and 3/4ths she is much more the target audience for this project than me. I should also note that this review is a few beers in and I am probably a little more forgiving now then I might normally be inclined to be.

My Thoughts: Hey, a subset pick that has been hanging out in my 'to watch' pile for years! This was a surprisingly competent werewolf movie. I loved the final were wolf make up and it had a surprising amount of gore for a mid nineties movie (considering the predominant attitude the MPAA still brandished at the time). In fact I was prized to call this one the last great 80's werewolf movie (despite it being made in '96) until they had to go and spoil it with that terrible Star Trek 6 computer morph for the transition of the beast. Obviously this came out after both An American Werewolf and The Howling so they couldn't go back to the days of the cut away transformation but man without that one effect this would play like the werewolf contemporary of Arachnophobia. The one gripe I have is everything felt a bit too safe for our main characters, we knew the dog was going to protect them the whole time. And the final werewolf make up in this did seem suspiciously familiar, almost like I had seen it in another movie. Another thing was that this movie was really short, the credits started to run at the 76 minute mark. But it was an enjoyable quicky.

(3.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: There were a bunch of these psycho derivative mommas boys killers in the 60s and 70s. Usually involving the damaged lead falling for a girl and then having weird Oedipal interactions with her, maybe with a little patricide in the mix. And this movie was no mold breaker. A boy decides to kill his father one day, later after becoming a man and comping home from the mental institution he kills his mom and her new beau. Then he gets obsessed with a prostitute and you can probably guess the rest. Found it kinda boring and trite also everyone dies so easily in this, rock to the head your dead. Stand out scenes would be him killing the black maid, the bound prostitute hopping around the house trying to let people at the door/on the phone know she is there and of course when said prostitute learns she can use sex against him like a weapon. Because you know mommas boy killers can never have normal sex.

(2.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: An aggressive hoppy scent and it smells like something I will not enjoy, like an IPA (not a back ally rape, I just re read that first sentence and was like, smells like something I won't enjoy? WTF). It is light and drinkable with a weird yeasty white grape finish (fermented berries?). This is another hold over beer from last years stash that was misplaced and comparing this review with last year it does seem to have taken on additional characteristics as a result for the better. I think I am going to purposefully drawer a few beers for next year as so far the aging has seemed to help them.

(3.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Set in the early 1920, The Awakening follows a female professional paranormal debunker who's skepticism is pushed to the limit when she stumbles onto something she can't explain. Essentially a British turn of the century Skully, I loved how British sassy she was too. It's quite entertaining watching her do her investigation. In fact now I am really in the mood for some paranormal investigation type material. Might have to work 1408 into the mix here in the next few days. I loved the setting and the mystery chasing, Brittish ghost seem much more proper than their unruly American compatriots. One downside to the movie was the big reveal which seemed way too coincidental, interesting but stretched the suspension of disbelief a bit. Although I am saying that about a movie about ghost, so go figure.

My Thoughts: I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that I actually like this movie. Another PG-13 zombie movie, not quite as good as Warm Bodies but still surprising what they can get away with in a sub-R picture. Based an a favorite books of high school kids being forced to read Jane Austen the plot of this movie is... dumb... really dumb. The zombie plague was brought over from the Americas (or maybe started by the French) has enveloped England. A large 'Attack On Titan'-esk wall has been built around London and then in a further circle out there a deep abyss has been dug in order to keep the zombie onslaught at bay. Aristocrats train for combat in the Orient during childhood... it really all just sounds like something someone in the 7th grade thought up one day. But despite the adolescent plotting it is actually quite fun to see proper ladies and gentlemen fighting the undead. It almost feels like watching a comic book. A little ultra gore would have been nice though. You would have thought someone would have though to shoot a little extra for the films optical release.

My Thoughts: Lena Headey is in everything! I think I might have to make a small Lena Headey marathon today, I do have The Purge in my 'to watch' pile. I remember thinking to myself, when this and Van Helsing came out, that it seemed mildly interesting but wondered if there was an audience for it. This movie did turn out better than I had thought, it had slipped by me that it was a Terry Gilliam directorial effort. And he always adds a little something fantastical to everything he does, a weird British bend that American productions set in Europe don't have. Matt Damon and Heath Ledger are The Brothers Grimm, a duo of fairytale hunting hucksters who are arrested and tasked with doing for real what they only pretend to do the past. An interesting juxtaposition with Hansel And Gretel Witch Hunters, but no where near as good. I did find enjoyment here, despite the terrible CGI this movie (as with most Gilliam production) was visually very appealing, had a great cast and a passable story. Something that will be fun to watch with my daughter in a few years.

(3.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Still counts as part of my Heady mini-marathon. This is a solo track with the director and he starts it off by saying that this was a script he didn't like but he was out of work at the time and that was pretty much the tone of track. Gilliam was very demurred, frequently sleep inducing and while this track typically covered stuff that I enjoy hearing about I just couldn't get into Gilliam's renditions. If only they had one other person in the booth with him, or if they had waited and the track was recorded after Heath Ledgers death, that might have added some interesting complexity. But overall unless you are a Gilliam super fan, skip this track.

(2 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Black hair Heady looks weird. I really should have saved this for my wife, I think she would have loved this movie. 1 night per year everything, including murder is legal, and one non-participant family gets on the wrong side of a murderous mob. Big question, would I be a participant or a shut in? Probably with my family I would have to be a shut it, but if I was single or they were on vacation... I don't know. I suppose I would still have to be a shut in as it seems that only people with groups would really be successful in staying alive at this game. I had avoided this movie for several years as it seemed... non-complex shall we say. But I found it to be quite enjoyable. Great house under siege movie with a twist. And a plot that is really interesting to think about. I will most assuredly have to catch the sequel, I own the threequel and I feel like I am not going to miss much if I skip the second one but hey, I'll wait until I can pick up Anarchy. There is, what has to be a terrible, spoof on Netflix I think I am going to catch next though.

My Thoughts: This was bad. I felt like kind of a racist even watching it but I suppose I am not really the target audience here. It is essential a black spoof of The Purge. Although the titled protagonist seem to have forgotten about the Purge in what is clearly a clunky way to provide exposition for explaining the purge. Which, com on guys, if you are going to spoof something just assume your audience is in on the joke and spoof it. The characters are all Scary Movie-esk charcuteries of black people sans the comedian lead Mike Epps. For the most part painfully unfunny I must admit to 2 or 3 good laughs all based on racially topical humor. In fact that is pretty much the whole point of the entire movie. Not to be a spoof in the same way Scary Movie was but more of a 'gee aren't white people racist' kind of movie.

(1.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: I liked this one, although admittedly I would have like it a little more when I was younger. It had a very The Gate feeling to it, in fact if there hadn't been a The Gate 2 this could have been that property. A bullied metal head starts a band, gets the girl and summons demons. Frequently hilarious but also just as frequently mark missing this uneven comedy has some nudity, some nice ultra gore and genuinely compelling character and music. Also the New Zealand setting added a bit of nice flavor to this one. There has been talk of a sequel in much the same way there has been for Tucker And Dale Vs Evil and the chances of it getting made at this point seem to be about the same. There is an interesting making of history behind this movie, I might have to track down a physical copy should a commentary exist.

(3.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: When I first saw this movie I was maybe 13ish, and I remember ogling these slightly older girls. Watching this now in my early 30s I do feel a little creepy. This is the first time I have seen this movie on anything other than VHS and it looks amazing. I love we get this weird 116 minute English/Italian hybrid cut. I am seeing more and more of this on blu-ray which I love. But it is really something that should have been done way more in the DVD days. The movie is just an all over the place, ultra stylized, Argento Giallo. His number two film, right after Suspiria (depending on who you talk to of course). There is something about American girls in trouble abroad that just does it for me. Maybe its that added insecurity of not being on your home turf, not necessary knowing the language and customs, it adds an elevated level of danger to the mix. Loved the use of music, Goblin synth is always a winner and the more contemporary rock interludes felt a lot like some of the musical cues in Deathgasm. This is one of those classics of the genre and I am thrilled about the upgrade from my old ohs tape. Also looking forward to watching this with my daughter in a few years.

(5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: For the first 5 minutes or so of this track I was dreading sitting through the whole thing because I could not stand the voice of this Argento scholar. It sounded like he has stayed up all night yelling into the wind, got a cold and then came to do this track with no sleep. But. The information he does out throughout the track is so interesting and compelling that it overcame this initial first impression. There is a ton of interesting stuff here, the insanity inducing wind, the chimp rage and one of my favorite things in these sort of retrospective tracks; the reading of bad reviews. It's actually kind of amazing as I initially really disliked this guy and now I kind of want to buy his book. Also trying to find interviews where Jennifer Connelly actually talks about Phenomena on the internet is frustratingly difficult. I need to know if your finger really had to be sewn back on Jennifer, pm me if you are reading this.

My Thoughts: My last Pepsi points freebie! I didn't really care for this when I first got the disc and I am sure that I opted for the extended version so I thought I would give the theatrical a spin this time and see if it faired better. Perhaps it was just a case of not being in the right mood when I first spun this disc but I had a much more enjoyable experience on my second view some 9ish years later. Although some of it could also be that now I have a daughter and can relate more to the character. Not that the family chemistry is really a high mark for this property, I like john Cusack but him interacting with other people is always somehow awkward. In this movie he plays a jaded writer who's bread and butter is haunted hotels. The only problem is they never actually seem to be haunted, that is until room 1408. I found this film to be highly enjoyable. Given the distance between now and my FTV of this title I don't know if it is appropriate to attribute my new fondness of it to the theatrical over the directors cut. So I am going to watch the latter with commentary here and see. But tomorrow, right now I need some thrills, lets watch something that will make me want to turn all the lights on. That is another thing about this one, it feels very safe for the viewer somehow, like a horror action movie.

My Thoughts: Barley aroma on top that is almost over shadowed by the sharp scent of hops. Reminds me of summer some how. Starts smooth and creamy then there is this unusual hop bitterness that just teases the sides of your tongue. And it closes with a sharp liquorish and burnt wheat aftertaste. Not what I was expecting at all based on the smell. It taste like a fall beer. I could see myself drinking this around a campfire or at a bbq. But really lets face it I am just going to stay inside and watch horror movies all month. I like the fall feeling here, even if it is a bit weird. Also as it warms it develops a very pleasant warm burnt caramel flavor.

(4.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Wow, almost forgot to add this one to the list. What does that say about this movie? So, you will notice the tagline of this movie is "For the first time you will see the activity." Wasn't not seeing it the whole point of the franchise? The fear of the unknown, the formless, intangible evil? I would venture to say that is what made this series scary. To start out with the house is even bigger, ever want to feel like a failure at life; then watch a Paranormal Activity sequel (except 5). They did choose a cool retro cash-in way to show the activity by having the family find an strange old VHS camera. And the spectral 3D in this was fantastic! But unfortunately it showed too much, also it was just too similar to every other film in the series (except 5). All the loose ends in the series are tied up here so I suppose as a finishing chapter it was ok but it was also the least scare inducing entry in the series.

(3 out of 5)
My Thoughts: This was an enjoyable lively track with the director and the screenwriters. This film apparently went thru a lot of variations and it was interesting listening to the group debate the merits of what stayed in as opposed to what was chucked. But my favorite part is when they would meander off topic and start talking about other movies. Also this added something to my 'to watch list'! At one point during the track one of the screenwriter ponders if they had gone a little too Night Of The Wolf. So I have that now for sure. On a comparison note, the theatrical version is way better here, watching the directors cut first is what put that bad taste in my mouth for this property all those years ago. I wonder if I should leave myself a little note in the DVD case for when I get the itch to give this one another pin in a decade or so.

My Thoughts: Water, not something the other group really has to worry about. Good tip, don't go into the desert during the zombie apocalypse. Also it is getting a little frustrating that everyone can't work together. Put down the zombie uprising and rebuild society already. But I suppose then there wouldn't be a show. These were a few ok episodes from the second best zombie show on TV. Highlights were the Asian kingpins, "we're going to have to remove it" and the bonding experience that is a mega herd. I am glad we finally got back onto the zombie threat, there was way too much bland factor rivalry. It was starting to remind me of season 3 of Lexx.

My Thoughts: Ultra low budget zombie movie about a zombie inducing drug distributed to people in Baton Rouge post hurricane in the guise of anti-anxiety pills. The movie follow a conspiracy theorist radio personality (doing an inanely bad southern accent), a token cool guy and two lesbian strippers that are road tripping to Texas for a cure. Poorly written, acted and shot this film did have the foresight to rent a few low end genre personalities for a few hours. And there was one flashback scene that took all the action bits from the first 5/6 of the movie and condensed it into about 30 seconds and set it to some decent metal. I recall thinking after that shot; wow, I wish I had been watching that movie the whole time. And that is really about the only good things I can say about this movie. It's ultimately a waste of time and something I plan on never watching again.

My Thoughts: There is nothing like a bad zombie movie to make you really appreciate TWD. One forgets that zombies don't need air. There are probably many a bunker, submarine and of course space station that just have zombies ambling around in a zero oxygen environment. A trap for the future. Interesting to think about in the post apocalyptic world. We have several back on the road again segments as the family finally leaves the ranch. All of which are way better than anything in Zombex (aside from the ladders brief nudity). Nick is back on drugs, walking with zombies and eating brain stems. And of course Ofelia, poor Ofelia. It will be nice when I am older and the complete series mega box sets are released and I can just stew in this universe for days. The thought of it is making me kind of want to revisit Lost again. Thats horror, right? I mean it has a smoke monster, and sand, sand gets everywhere.

My Thoughts: Wow. The most compelling zombie movie I have seen in a long time. I had heard all the positive buzz about this one but was pleasantly surprised at both the quality and scope of this picture. The movie follows a train full of passengers on their way to Busan during the onset of a zombie apocalypse. True these were more of the more popular 28 Days Later type of zombies but man I didn't care. I loved everything about this movie, even most of the Korean humor played ( which is generally not typical for Asian movies for me). I hope to see more Asian horror of this caliber! Disclaimer though, I might have liked this movie a little more than normal because it was so easy to identify with the father and his daughter, can't wait to watch this one with mine.

My Thoughts: A horror anthology for women by women. And that is exactly what it is and in fact I didn't even realize until right now that XX was meant be chromosomes, wow. Stores range from a mom who's family stops eating, to a mom who loves her son even though he is a Rosemary's baby child, to a mom who is trying to save her daughters birthday by Weekend at Bernie's-ing her dead husband around the house. It is legit a horror movie for 40 year old women, it is so weird. To be fair there is one story about a woman having a bad camping experience who isn't a mom. I suddenly wonder if my mom would like this, I don't think she would... Well maybe if they didn't open with that first story I could get her on board. This a movie aimed at an audience that will primarily not be interested in watching it, interesting to get a different point of view though.

My Thoughts: I watched this a few challenges back on DVD and my big take away from that experience was: "For a movie that stars the 80's scream queen dream team there is an unforgivably low level of picture quality on this disc. If there is one thing (or two things) that you want to see with some clarity...". Well that issue has been rectified with the Vinegar Syndrome Blu-Ray release. The movie is not any better, but you weren't really watching the movie for the plot or the acting. But for connoisseurs of such trash this is a worthwhile upgrade. And knocks this title up another half star.

My Thoughts: This Heineken style oktberfest brew has a light hoppy lemon scent on top and a bit of a sour twinge when it enters your mouth. That quickly dissipates and you are left with this unpleasant bitter liquorish tastes racing down the sides of your tongue. The flavor left in your mouth after you swallow is that of a pill that you have let sit in your mouth a little too long, a lingering unpleasant bitterness. Now if you try to drink this without tasting it it does go down smooth and it does becomes much more palatable at room temperature. That Heineken taste dies and is replaced my a hollow fruity beer with a familiar caramel marzen finish. But it was little too late.

My Thoughts: This commentary track by 80's trash superstar and modern near gay porn director David DeCoteau and scream queen superstar Linnea Quigley is a great listen. I loved it when they were both ogling Michelle Bauer, talking about USA Up All Night and really focusing on how much Linnea was licking that guys chest. Very entertaining track that is a must listen for any fan of 80's video store shlock. The only thing that could have made this better is if Michelle and Brinke had participated. And then what do you know, I was looking up alternate art for this entry and find out that there is not one but two more commentary tracks recorded for this title! Both on some long OOP dvd that I am not paying $30 for. And one of those tracks is Brinke and Michelle! Why did I cheap out and buy the DVD with no supplements! Probably because it came with other movies... but man, if I had only known. And that is where that review ends. Everything else here is just filler to even out the columns of my list. I figured of all the reviews on here who is really going to read the review of the commentary of Nightmare Sisters? But if you are reading this I do applaud you, this is kind of an easter egg. Not that it is hidden or anything more shoehorned into mediocrity.

My Thoughts: Ah, the 90's, I remember when this was all just normal. I watched the tape a lot when I was younger. This was what young SterlingBen expected high school to be like when he grew up. So needless to say I was a fan of this bloodless, vampire rom-com. I was even a little pissed even that they did this TV series and didn't have really any connection to the movie (something I got over). This movie is Clueless with vampires, a unique 90's horror time capsule. And as sad as it sounds I am going to have the soundtrack stuck in my head for days.

(4 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Heavy sediment and pumpkin spice on top (for non-beer drinkers essentially it smells like pumpkin spice sprinkled over dirty marina water, a lot of pumpkin spice). Sharp almost fruity start quickly turns into this creamy mellow weirdness. Pumpkin pie soda? I had this canned a few years back and it was much much better this time around. An interesting and very festive brew.

(4 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Every 8 or more years I think to myself, maybe you were just not in the right mood the last time you watched Zombie Lake. The plot synopsis on this one is solid: A small European town kills a bunch of Nazis and dumps there bodies in the local lake only to have them come back years later as murderous zombies set to reek their revenge on the townspeople. I remember reading about this in Creature Feature back in the day and pining to see it. And then finally seeing it on a weird video stores shelf but being too awkward to rent it. I bought this DVD back when I paid MSRP for everything (back before I knew about DVDTalk and was taught the ways of the bargain forum) and was super disappointed that this was not a Romero or even a Feluci style zombie outing. These zombies are just slathered with green face paint, they do get out their and kill from time to time (when they aren't visiting their kids) but really they just prefer to attack women who are swimming in the lake (or frequently swimming pool dressed up to be a lake). There is large swaths of this movie that are pantomimed with zero dialog, the dubbing otherwise is terrible but not a bad as the acting and the effects. It's just all around a big disappointment. I will say that the town Mayor's mini castle is pretty awesome and there is at least copious nudity but that is not enough to save this one.

My Thoughts: Oooo, spooky skull movie. So I was expecting, given the date of production, for this to be some lame Elvira fodder picture. But it turned out to be quite entertaining. A challenge surprise for me much like Terror Train was a few years back. Speaking of which, this movie stars Lee and Cushing as rich collectors of the occult. The scenery for both their movie homes and these collection of occult artifacts are amazing, I am kind of a little sad that I youtube's this and don't have a proper blu to ogle. So, it's business as usual until Cushing's character acquires the cursed skull of the Marquis de Sade and strange things start happening. I dug the atmosphere and the plot and more importantly the props. This is yet another movie where real human remains are used on screen. Maybe a checklist check next year? Although I must admit, lists of said movies are just not compiled on the internet, I've looked. I have also looked into buying a skull which, in the states at least, seems unreasonably pricey. The movie was an entertaining equivalent to Lee and Cushing's hammer offerings of the time.

(3.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: And conversely to The Skull this is an actual Hammer movie but without either of their staple iconic duo. Set around 1900 the daughter of Jack the Ripper, scarred by witnessing the death of her mother, is an orphan who's triggered to kill by gaudy jewelry. It was a passable movie, toted as one of Hammers more grizzly films it dabbled in a lot of interesting avenues. There was hypnotism, spiritualist debunking, old timey prostitutes and several tourist attraction type settings (I have got to visit that place where you can whisper to someone across the stadium and they hear you). But it felt a little lacking, almost like all that was just tacked onto a run of the mill psycho killer plot. A meh film, but thank you anyways to GoldenWheels, I do appreciate the delve into hammer, something still fairly new to me.

(3 out of 5)
My Thoughts: For some crazy reason I have never seen Munchies. It's definitely right up my alley as a fan of the monster puppet movies sub-genre. And I have ogled that poster for years. But for whatever reason I never made the leap. So when putting together this years banner I decided enough was enough. And what can say? Was the wait worth it? The plot was terrible, the puppets were terrible, I could see the top of the set from time to time and I loved it! It was just a goofy cheesy mess. I will say that I am glad my recent viewing of Hobgoblins lowered the bar so much or I might not have been quite as forgiving with this movie. So the Munchie was a Gizmo like alien left sealed in a Machu Picchu temple who turns vicious when some asshole doesn't let him watch TV and throws him across the room (I mean come on, WTF guy he was so cute?!) A hilarious battle ensues and the little guy gets chopped up, only to multiply and start reeking havoc on the surrounding community. I wonder if they are dressed more like Jaws or like the minions of the Tall man... probably Jawas. Great 80's fuff piece. And man that kitchen was amazing, I wonder if my wife would let me paint out kitchen like that?

(4 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Due to it's proximity I can't help but compare this to Zombex. This was also a sub par zombie movie but slightly more enjoyable. That is probably due to this being a Zombie comedy and Japanese. In this movie a spaceship crashes on Mt. Fuji sending out a zombie educing wave, we follow several Japanese stereotypes along their road to survival and death. Not a great movie but it was kind of fun watching a stuck up Idol in a zombie situation. Although the whole time I kind of wished I was watching Bio-Zombie.

(2008) (DVD) (FTV)
My Thoughts: First year for the Hefe-Wizen. it was an interesting departure from Paulaner more traditional offerings. Sharp white grape and hops scent that is somehow richer, you can almost smell the higher German quality. A pleasantly mild and creamy wheat beer with a slight hoppy bite at the end. It’s a higher caliber beer than it's American counter parts and you can taste it. That being said I still prefer their Oktoberfest wizen & marzen. But I have never really ben a hops fan not that it over hinders this beer. It does take on a slightly sour yeasty aftertaste as it warms.

(4 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Carries a light... cheaper hoppy smell but with a surprisingly complex flavor. Lemon, barley, pear, liquorish... it is a little hard to nail down. Leaves a sweet bitter taste on the very back of the pallet. I found it to perform better ice cold, warmer it starts having a deeper bitter liquorish taste, little chalky. Started out with promise.

(2.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: I had a hard time connecting with this movie but I think I might just not have been in the right mood. The movie follows the family of a girl who drowned in a documentary style set up. And we gradually get clues that her spirit still roams and that maybe she knew more than she was letting on. I dug the going back and seeing more than you saw before aspect of this movie, felt a lot like Sinister in that respect. But again just really couldn't get into it. Maybe I am horror'd out for the day. I am going with a 3/5, my average movie score. But I must rewatch this again in a couple of years, maybe with a few less beers and not as the 5th movie of the day.

My Thoughts: Fuck that was a good movie. I was not in the best of moods this morning but a coffee and The Babysitter really set the day off right. Set modernly but with a decisively 80's feel, this horror comedy follows a young man who decided to stay up and see what his babysitter is up to when he is asleep and that shits crazy. Movie references abound the boy must face-off against several slasher victim archetypes except this time they are the villains. One thing that was super weird for me was the slightly annoying black guy was the annoying boyfriend in Meet the Blacks, I would hazard to say he did a much better job in this though. I had a fantastic time with this movie, I loved the references and I even actually lol'd which is something rare these days in a horror comedy. Most of them as of late just comping off annoying as opposed to funny. So far my best movie experience all month.

My Thoughts:Released in '83 this movie has a decisively 70's feel to it. A group of college students travel into the desert for some light archaeology and fall afoul of an Indian curse that leads to their doom. Sorry for the spoiler but it is called Scalps, so come on. The acting/plot and editing feel so neophyte that I would almost think this was a student film if I didn't Fred Olen Ray directorial effort. Shots tend to linger in a way that screams 'we've got to fill time to make this feature length'. The one area where it does shine is the gore effects which were very effective. At least I think they were, the quality of the Blu-Ray leaves something to be desire, in fact this may be the worst quality blu-ray I have ever seen. Also it's setting was at least interesting, being out in the desert gave it a very The Hills Have Eyes vibe, except here the hills had pissed Indian poltergeist.

My Thoughts: I typically don't watch fan film, in my experience they are 95% crap. There are a few exception, the big standout for me would be Troopers. But I was pleasantly surprised here. It's hard to say when this is suppose to be set, there are various series tells, such as mask condition, that are not kept in continuity here. But this extended universe Friday the 13th film does retain the key story elements of at least the first 7 movies. In this one a Youtube hiker out on a trek find himself in a not so abandoned Camp Crystal Lake. And while that does sound like it would be annoying as shit, it'a actually not. I liked the main character and his exploration and subsequent run-in with the legend are a compelling watch. I think I would even put this over Friday 9 on my best to worst list. I love getting more of classic Jason, this fan film scratched an itch that has been around since '89. My one caveat to this project is that Jason doesn't move right, it just doesn't look like him when he is walking/stalking around. But it's a minor quibble, worth a watch for any fan of the Friday the 13th series.

My Thoughts: Silent movie after a long day, that was tough to stay awake thru. That was an interesting juxtaposition with the Burton Sleepy Hollow. I may need to read the original story again as I can't tell which of these is keeping with tradition and which is making it it's own. I would have though for sure that this telling would be much more to the plot of the story but it feels off to me. Will Rogers plays Icobod Crane here and is a school teacher as opposed to Depps investigator of the previous version. It's weird seeing Will rogers in a silent film, everything else I have seen him in he talks, a lot. This telling of The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow focuses way more on the romantic rivalry between Icabod and the town ruffian. This was a weird watch, there are way more slaves, a cock fight, a near tar and feathering and like 5 minutes of headless horsemen story arc. Of marginal interest but overall it is hard for a is hard for a pre-talkie to really captivate the modern viewer.

2009 = 52 movies
2010 = 20 movies
2011 = 43 movies

2013 = 42 movies 2013 Horror Challenge Prize Winner!!
2014 = 39 movies
2015 = 45 movies
2016 = 35 movies

Total Horror Movies Before This Year = 439

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Lights out. And now the movies, folks . . ."

September 30, 2017 . . . after sunset

1. The Mad Ghoul (1943) - I'd never seen this old Universal Horror flick - Evelyn Ankers breaks a lot of hearts in this one, directly and indirectly. Ahem.

October 1, 2017

2. It (2017) - One of the most intense mainstream movies I've seen in a theater. Pennywise is brilliantly realized in this Stephen King adaptation. Great horror film!

October 2, 2017

3. The Ape Man (1943) - Goofy B-movie has Bela Lugosi seeking spinal fluid to cure him of a self-inflicted simian transformation. Ralph Littlefield's comic relief character is the highlight here.

October 3, 2017

4. Alien: Covenant (2017) - Cerebral. Lots of references to classic literature and classical music. This is definitely one of my favorite Alien sequels.

October 4, 2017

5. She-Wolf of London (1946) - I rather liked this old Universal horror flick. The climax may be obvious but the appearance of the killer brandishing a large butcher knife was unexpected.

October 5, 2017

6. The Other Side of the Door (2016) - Somber story of an American mother in India who goes to great lengths to connect with her dead son. Atmospheric setting - but the film is let down a bit by a surprisingly cheesy ending and coda.

October 6, 2017

7. Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943) - Predominantly a Wolf Man sequel, this meeting of the classic Universal monsters follows a lot of cliches, but does so effectively with atmospheric sets and a great cast of horror regulars.

October 7, 2017

8. Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2009) - Third Underworld film takes the prequel route and tells the backstory of Lucian and Viktor. Sort of cheesy but fun.

October 8, 2017

9. The Mummy's Ghost (1944) - Lon Chaney Jr. returns for another entry in the Mummy series. The young couple uncharacteristically don't get a happy ending together.

October 9, 2017

10. The Mummy's Curse (1944) - A direct sequel of The Mummy's Ghost, though the action is inexplicably moved from New England to bayou country. Lon Chaney Jr.'s final go-round as the mummy.

October 10, 2017

11. Shadow of the Cat (1961) - Entertaining black-and-white Hammer film sees a cat haunting the heirs of its murdered owner.

October 11, 2017

12. Split (2016) - This might be M. Night Shyamalan's best film. James McAvoy gives a tour de force performance, ably assisted by Anya Taylor-Joy from The Witch.

October 12, 2017

13. The Invisible Man Returns (1940) - A very young Vincent Price assumes the vocal lead in this first sequel to Universal's The Invisible Man. Not bad.

October 13, 2017

14. The Pearl of Death (1944) - Based loosely upon Doyle's "The Six Napoleons," this entry in Universal's Sherlock Holmes series benefits from a cast that includes horror icons Evelyn Ankers and Rondo Hatton.

October 14, 2017

15. Happy Death Day (2017) - Slasher film final girl, meet Groundhog Day. There's some issues with pacing and tone, but this was entertaining enough to get a pass.

October 15, 2017

16. Godzilla Raids Again (1955) - Immediate follow-up to the original Godzilla. Some goofy dubbing, but it's a fun monster romp.

October 16, 2017

17. Mothra Vs. Godzilla (1964) - Mothra (and later two larvae) take on Godzilla in this memorable matinee smackdown.

October 17, 2017

18. Terror Train (1980) - Post-Halloween slasher film starring Jamie Lee Curtis; perhaps the most notable aspect today is that a very young David Copperfield has a role as, surprise, the magician.

October 18, 2017

19. Godzilla's Revenge (1969) - This early attempt at cashing in on the juvenile market for Godzilla has odd results.

October 19, 2017

20. The Mysterious Mr. Wong (1934) - Politically incorrect relic of the 1930s sees Bela Lugosi play evil mastermind Wong. Wallace Ford is fun as a wisecracking newspaper reporter.

October 20, 2017

21. The Living Ghost (1942) - Some horror overtones occur in this breezy whodunit comedy. It's a watchable "poverty row" flick from the 1940's.

Re: The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa

Follow my daily watchlist videos during the challenge at youtube "Retro Horror" https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHo..._as=subscriber

First-Time Viewing: 40 | Blu-Ray: 44 | DVD:21 | TV: 1 | Streaming: 10 | Theater 1 | Commentaries Listened To:

Sept 30th

1. The Blob (1958) 6/10. Blu Ray. Steve McQueen early role. He was paid 3K but could have taken 10% of profits. The film made 4M. The film drags with a lot of static dialogue shots.

2. The Phantom Carriage (1921) 8/10. Blu Ray. A fascinating, complex ghost story and morality play. Technically this film pushed boundaries. Must viewing.

3. The Strangers (2008) 6/10. Showtime TV. Much hyped home invasion film. I enjoyed the build up, but found the ending unsatisfying.

Oct 1st

4. Cronos (1994) 7/10 Blu Ray. Del Toro's first film is a fascinating exploration into eternal life and beautifully shot. needs a rewatch.

5. The Blob (1988) 8/10. Blu Ray. I love this reboot of the Blob! Great pacing and gruesome kills. Must see.

6. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) 8/10. Blu Ray. A great follow up to a classic. TCM 2 is iconic and gets better with each watch.

Oct 2nd

7. CHUD (1984). 7/10. Blu Ray. Watched the international cut on the Arrow Blu ray. I am a big fan of Daniel Stern. I think he carried this film.

8. Humanoids of the Deep (1980) 8/10. Blu Ray. Roger Corman's version of Creature from the Black Lagoon. Lots of monsters, gore and boobs. Must viewing!

9. Beware the Blob (aka Son of Blob) (1973) 6/10. Blu Ray. Larry Hagman directed Blob sequel. This one has alot of stars in it but doesn't know if it wants to be a comedy or a horror film.

Oct 3rd

10. Without Warning (1980) 8/10. Blu Ray. Jack Palance, Martin Landau and Frisbee throwing Aliens. What more can you ask for? classic 80s cheese.

11. Amer (2009) 3/10. Blu Ray. it's rare that a film moves me to rant, but Amer accomplished it. 90 minutes of pretentious, tedium shot almost exclusively in extreme close ups. This one took years off my lifespan.

12. Spasmo (1974). 7/10. Blu Ray. Umberto Lenzi Giallo murder mystery with a twist ending. Another in a long line of entertaining Giallo films.

13. Peeping Tom (1960) 8/10. BLu Ray. The film that ruined a director's career, now considered a masterpiece. Must viewing.

14. Popcorn (1991) 5/10. Blu Ray. The Synapse Steelbook edition is gorgous, but this is really not a very good slasher film.

Oct 4th

15. Mad Monster Party (1967) 6/10. DVD The old Rankin and Bass puppetry films from the 60s & 70s are really only geared to those of us that were young kids at that time. It was a fun trip down memory lane.

16. Extraordinary Tales (2015) 7/10. netflix. I thoroughly enjoyed this aminated anthology of Poe tales. Highly recommended.

17.The Dorm That Dripped Blood (aka Death Dorm or Pranks) (1982) 6/10. Blu Ray. Two UCLA film students directed this slasher film during the hayday of slashers and its a very good effort. The kills are numerous and well done. recommended.

18. The Stranger (2014) 6/10. Netflix. An interesting variant on the vampire mythos. No fangs in this one and the emphasis is on family bonds.

October 5th

19. An American Werewolf in London (1981) 7/10. Blu Ray. Classic from John Landis. Nice mix of horror and humor. very entertaining.

20. The Beast Must Die (1974) 6/10 DVD. 70s drive in classic. More of a "who dunnit" then a werewolf film, but entertaining.

21. Bad Moon (1996) 7/10. Blu Ray. A very entertaining werewolf movie told thru the eyes of the family dog, Thor. Werewolf effects were a bit cheesy, but still a fun watch.

22. Brotherhood of the Wolf (2001) 7/10. DVD. An interesting take on the wolf mythology and loosely based on true events. At 2.5 hours it was too long tho.

Oct 6th

23.Faceless (1988) 9/10. Dvd. Faceless is Jess Franco's homage to Eyes Without a Face. It is excellent and includes a powerful cast. One of Franco's best films.

24.Candyman (1992) 7/10. Dvd. Clive Barker's classic film that put Tony Todd on the map. Still holds up to repeat viewings.

25. Urban Legend (1998) 6/10. Dvd. Scream copycat released two years after. Mindless entertainment and Tara Reid actually looks good in this one.

26. Urban Legend Final Cut (2000) 5/10. Dvd. More comedy in this sequel, but Eva Mendez is easy on the eyes.

27. Urban Legend Bloody Mary (2000) 4/10. Dvd. Straight to video. this one goes for the supernatural element vs a
"scream" rip off plot.

Oct 7th

28. Cult of Chucky (2017). 6/10. Netflix. Direct to video release that updates the story with a grown up Andy and Nica from the sixth film merging story arcs into a psych facility. A decent, but not great return for Chucky.

29. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1921) 9/10. Blu Ray. A classic of German Expressionist cinema. I have the Eureka Blu Ray and the 4k scan is incredible.

30. The Forest (1982) 4/10. Blu Ray. Z grade Slasher/Cannibal in the woods film. Equally parts entertaining and inept.

31. The Void (2017) 8/10. Netflix. One of my favorite viewings of the challenge. One of the most intense, innovative and interesting films since Hellraiser (very similar to Hellraiser).

32. Savage Weekend (1979) 6/10. Blu Ray. Decent proto slasher made in 1976 but released in 79. Scorpion Blu Ray is excellent.

Oct 8th

33. Night of the Living Dead (1990) 7/10. Blu Ray. A more than respectable reboot by Tom Savini.

34. Train to Busan (2016) 8/10. Blu Ray. A very well done Asian version of "28 days later".

35. Tombs of the Blind Dead (1971) 8/10. Dvd. Spain's answer to Night of the Living Dead is a very moody, atmospheric masterpiece. Highly recommended. similar to Burial Ground.

36. Dawn of the Dead (2004) 7/10. Blu Ray. Zack Synder's reboot of the classic. Ving Rhames makes the movie.

Oct 9th

37. Messiah of Evil (1973) 6/10. Blu Ray. Strange 70s horror film about a mysterious stranger, zombies and cannibalism. A bit static and talky.

38. Return of the Blind Dead (1973) 6/10. Dvd. The skeletons of the knights templars return in the sequel to Tombs of the Blind Dead. Equally atmospheric as the original.

39. Raw (2017) 7/10. Dvd. A vegetarian acquires a taste for humans after eating a rabbit kidney. Reminds me of 2013 Contracted, which i liked better.

Oct 10th

40. Highway to Hell (1992) 4/10 Blu Ray. Interesting concept. A cop from hell capture women and takes them to an alternate reality (hell, supposedly). Played as a comedy (includes Ben Stiller), but I didnt find it funny. pass on it.

41. The Ghost Galleon (1974) 6/10. Dvd. Third in the Blind Dead films. This time the Knights Templar occupy a 18th century ship. Not as good as the first two.

42. Yongary, Monster From the Deep (1967) [U]7/10. Blu Ray.[/U] Korean Kiaju film. Always alot of fun.

43. Night of the Seagulls (1976) 7/10. Blu Ray. One thing about these Blind Dead films is their consistency. If you liked the first one your gonna like all the others. This fourth installment delivers same as first three with a change in location.

Oct 11th

44. XX (2017) 7/10. Netflix. An interesting Anthology by female directors. I thought each story was good. Not sure about rewatch value.

45. Diary of the Dead (2007) 6/10. Blu Ray. Romero dips his toe into the found footage/shot on video world. Low production values and lots of CGI. I don't think this worked.

46. Parents (1989) 7/10. Blu Ray. A repeat watch of this Vestron Blu Ray. I really enjoyed it. Randy Quaid makes the movie.

47. Bubba Ho Tep (2002) 9/10. Dvd. I love Bubba Ho Tep. My favorite bruce campbell performance.

No viewings

Oct 14th

48. One Dark Night (1982) 3/10. Amazon Prime. A snoozer. A boo film without any boos until the last 20 minutes. Takes way too long to set up. Not a good start for Tom McLoughlin.

49. Waxwork (1988) 6/10. Blu Ray. A fun film with David Warner and the sexy Michelle Johnson.

50. Waxwork II (1992) 5/10. Blu Ray. Not sure why there was such a gap between films. This one amps up the comedy.

51. The House that Screamed (1971) 7/10 Blu Ray. Proto Slasher from a Spanish Director. Very much a Psycho copycat.

Oct 15th

52. Friday The 13th Part 2 (1981) 8/10. Blu Ray. "Tator Sack" Jason!. My favorite sequel along with final chapter.

53.The Screaming Skull (1958) 4/10. stream. Watched the MS3TK version. Still a pretty tough sit through.

54. Kwaidan (1964) 10/10. Blu Ray. A beautiful ghost film. Definitely a masterpiece of Japanese cinema.

Oct 16th

55. Chosen Survivors (1974) 6/10. Blu Ray. A post apocalyptic underground bunker also contains vampire bats.

56. Martyrs (2008) 7/10. Dvd. A very divisive film. It's brutal, tough to watch and thought provoking at the same time.

57. Kalifornia (1993)
7/10. Blu Ray. Brad Pitt plays a red-neck serial killer and does it very well. I was surprised how much i liked this one.

58. Don't Answer the Phone (1980) 6/10 Blu Ray. A classic sleazy serial killer film. I remember this one causing alot of public hand wringing. Pretty tame stuff for today's standards. The Vinegar Syndrome Blu Ray is outstanding.

Oct 17th

59. Happy Death Day (2017) 4/10. Theater A light weight slasher film geared towards teenie boppers.

60. Tokaido Yotsuya Kaidan (1959) 7/10. TCM Interesting revenge / ghost story from Japan.

61. Tales of Halloween (2015) 6/10 Blu Ray. A new anthology. Like many, it has some hits and misses. Still recommended.

Oct 18th

62. The Mummy (1999) 6/10. Blu Ray. CGI fest with Brendon Frazier. I hated this when it first came out, but I enjoy it now for what it is - an action adventure romp.

63. Seeding the Ghost (1983) 7/10. BLu Ray Shaw Bros Rape/Revenge film that features black magic and a bat shit ending.

64. Pin (1989) 6/10. Dvd. Interesting spin on the evil doll idea, but i think the movie runs a bit too long.

65. The Pit (1981) 7/10 Blu Ray. A strange, quirky story about a sexually obsessed boy who kills people by pushing them into a pit filled with troglodytes.

Oct 19th

66. Under the Shadow (2016) 6/10. Netflix. My second viewing of this Iranian supernatural film. I still think this is a fairly routine supernatural story.

67. Possession (1981) 8/10 Blu Ray Fascinating, strange, confusing possession story. Highly recommended.

68. The Mummy Returns (2001) 5/10 Blu Ray A poor man's Raiders of the Lost Ark. Ironically they spend 98M on this. If I was the producers I would want a refund. Horrible CGI.

Oct 20th

69. Succubus (1969) 8/10 Dvd. Jess Franco goodness. Early film showcases Janine Reynaud as a nightclub actress who seduces and kills her victims.

70. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008) 7/10. Blu Ray. I think this third film was an improvement over the the second in the trilogy. I like the premise set in China.

71. Shadow of the Vampire (2000) 8/10. Dvd. An under-rated classic. John Malkovich plays FW Murnau as he films his classic Nosferatu.

72. Queen of Blood (2014) 7/10 Blu Ray. Fascinating surreal vampire film in the style of Jean Rollin.

73. Ganja and Hess (1973) 7/10 Youtube. Interesting Blaxploitation vampire film with Duane jones.

Oct 21st

74. Horror Rises From the Tomb (1972) 7/10 Blu Ray. Paul Naschy plays multiple roles including a beheaded warlock who returns from the dead.

75. Day of the Dead (1985) 8/10. Dvd. Romero classic third film in the dead trilogy.

76. Fade to Black (1980) 6/10. Dvd. A movie obsessed young man plays out kill scenes from his favorite movies.

77. Riding the Bullet (2004) 6/10 Dvd. Stephen King ghost story adaptation. Not bad.

Re: The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa

The List
Spoiler:

Sundown Sep 30:
1. The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo E01: "To All the Ghouls I've Loved Before" / The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo E02: "Scoobra Kadoobra"
October 1:
2. The Mummy (2017) w/ Commentary
October 3:
3. Demon Wind - Not bad considering I heard it referred to as an Evil Dead knock off. I can see the comparisons, but this had a different mood and style going about it. I approve even if the acting is pretty rough.
4. Hollow Man - I don't think this has aged very well. There are parts of it that are still quite interesting to see put out there, a lot of it feels rough today.
October 4:
5. Skinwalkers - Huh, not what I expected. It had some interesting points, but it seemed to drag a good bit. Probably won't watch this one again.
6. Humanoids from the Deep - Another I probably won't watch again. Not because it drags, but because of the nature of what it is. Although, it does what it is pretty well.
7. Vampire Wars - That really drug. It looked pretty nice, I guess. This is a rough day...
8. Green Room - My second time watching this. It might actually be harder to watch when knowing what is coming. Still very effective.
9. Unfriended - I expected it to be pretty bad, but it was okay. The acting wasn't that great, but it played out pretty decent.

Re: The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa


September 30- Criterion Crossover So It Begins!
1) Cronos (1993) - The first del Toro movie I ever owned was the Lionsgate DVD, but I can't remember ever watching it. Seemed very new and fresh to me. 4/5**
2) Frankenstein: (1931) -Feature Commentary with Film Historian Rudy Behlmer - Love me some Rudy Behlmer, and this commentary didn't disappoint.
October 1
3) The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986)
4) Devil's Pass (2013) - One movie to rule all conspiracy theories. It started out strong but just fell apart along the way. Started pulling for the 'things' way too early. 2/5**
5) Mother! (2017) - This one REALLY needs another viewing. That last 20 minutes was one hell of a ride. 3.5/5**
6) Snowbeast (1977) - Bo Svenson and Clint Walker! I kept on noticing the scene fades, ideal for commercial breaks. I was finally able to figure out that this was made-for-TV. Not great, but I could see this being the Sunday night movie on ABC. 2.5/5**
October 2
7) C.H.U.D (1984) - The effects may look quite terrible to modern audiences, but I really love this movie from my childhood. The opening scene where dog & owner are snatched from the manhole is classic. 4.5/5
8) The Giant Claw (1957) - The visual effects may not hold up, but this bird really is magnificent in its own world. He would never be able to survive in the real world, but he rules in this movie. 4/5**
October 3
9) Amer (2009) - I don't think I'm dressed for the occasion. I've been mulling this one for a few days now, and I just didn't like it. 2/5**
10) Mad Doctor of Blood Island (1968) - I loved the trailer for this one and hoped the movie could have been more like it. Chlorophyll poisoning? That sounds awesome! 2.5/5**
October 4
11) Mad Monster Party? (1967)
12) Brides of Blood (1968) - The first moth attack I've ever seen.
October 5
13) Bad Moon (1996)
14) Shock Waves (1977)
15) The Pack (1977)
16) Late Phases (2014)
October 6
17) Candyman (1992)
18) Werewolf Rising (2014)
19) Blair Witch (2016)
20) Gerald's Game (2017)
21) White Zombie (1932)
22) Black Sabbath (1963) AIP
October 7
23) The Void (2016) - Fantastic! Very solid horror flick that defies explanation at points. This has been with me since I watched it. I'll be on the lookout for the Blu. 5/5**
24) IT (2017)
25) The Mummy (1932) - This is Karloff's role! There were some really great visuals to feast the eyes upon. I thought the commentary was quite informative. 4/5
26) Phantom of Opera (1943) - I've never seen this version. Technicolor on the blu looks REALLY very good. Claude Raines is a bit too sympathetic. Need to find the Chaney version. 4/5**
27) Bride of Frankenstein (1935) - I do prefer this to the original Frankenstein. Love seeing Dwight Frye, whom I consider iconic in his roles. 5/5
October 8
28) Train to Busan (2016) - Very high praise for a harrowing ride! 5/5
29) Seoul Station (2016) - I had high hopes, but felt this was just some animated zombie story that was trying to attach itself to the movie. Bit of a letdown, but there were some non-horror scenes that elicited a horror response. 3/5**
30) Within (2016) - It was better than I thought it would be, but that's not saying too much. Kept thinking Bad Ronald, but I felt Ronald did it better. 2.5/5**
31) Bait (2012) - I've always had a lot of fun with this movie. This has got to be the greatest shark in the grocery store movie ever made. The writers had a good time coming up with this one. 5/5
32) 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) - I had no idea what I was getting into for this movie. Love John Goodman in an atypical role, and felt there was only one way to end this movie. Bravo! 4.5/5**
October 9
33) Raw (2016) - I'll be on the lookout for this Blu. This had some genuinely unsettling moments, and it felt like it had something deeper to relay. Need to revisit. 4/5**
34) The Ghost of Yotsuya (1959) Tokaido Yotsuya kaidan - This one had the Criterion banner, so I'm assuming this will drop hopefully. I really love the Japanese ghost stories, and this one didn't disappoint. I was a bit unsettled by the ghost wife. 5/5**
October 10
35) Yongary, Monster from the Deep (1967) - Go Yongary, Go! I enjoyed as much as I could. If Yongary had made a snack of that annoying little kid, then it would be a classic. 3/5**
36) Highway to Hell (1992) - This one felt as if it was made in the mid-80s, but not release until the 90s. Oh wait....
October 11
37) The Screaming Skull (1958)
38) Trick or Treats (1982) - I sure am glad I didn't buy this right before it went OOP! 1/5**
39) Pet Sematary (1989) - One of my favorite King adaptations. 4.5/5
October 12
40) Bubba Ho-Tep (2002)
41) Evolution (2015) - Very thought provoking movie. I will need to revisit once the Challenge has ended to dig a bit deeper. 4/5**
42) Cemetery Man (1994) - I need this on BLU ASAP. 4/5**
October 13
43) Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981) - I forgot how fun these Friday the 13th movies can be. I can't remember ever having seen this one, but that's not saying too much. I need to revisit the series. 4/5**
44) Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) - I came back into the series with a strong reluctance. This was MUCH better than the first one, but not great. Isn't a graveyard consecrated ground, and not just some place that has bodies? 2.5/5**
45) The Possession (2012)
46) The House by the Cemetery (1981)
October 14
47) One Dark Night (1982)
48) The Skull (1965)
October 15
49) Tales of Halloween (2015)

Re: The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa

My Fifth Horror Challenge
*= first time watching
Counting Method: 2 hours of Television Content = 1 item


My goal is 31.

Potential List:

Stranger Things Season 2
Supernatural Season 13
The Mist Season 1
The Walking Dead Season 7 - Finish
The Walking Dead Season 8
1408
Insidious: Chapter 3
Krampus
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Slither
The Babysitter
The Blair Witch Project
The Boy
The Purge: Election Year
The Shallows


October 1
.5. The Walking Dead - Ep. 7.14 "The Other Side"*
1. The Walking Dead - Ep. 7.15 "Something They Need"*

October 2
2. Eloise (2017)*
Creepy more than scary though there was a nice twist.
Body Count - 3

October 3
2.5. The Walking Dead - Ep. 7.15 "The First Day of the Rest of Your Life"*
3. The Walking Dead - Season 8 Preview Special"*

October 4
4. The Darkness (2016)*
This movie manages to make Kevin Bacon unlikeable. I'm not sure there has ever been a more boring horror movie.
Body Count - 0

October 5
5. The Messengers (2007)*
Very smart POV in this one. I liked the twist.
Body Count - 4

October 6
6. Resident Evil:Retribution (2012)*
As weird and as confusing as ever, but also as entertaining as ever.
Body Count - 7 (Best guess, not counting zombies)

October 7
7. The Purge: Election Year (2016)*
I loved this so much. Horrifying and brutal and super creepy because this could so easily be reality especially with the way things are now.
Body Count - 80
8. Krampus (2015)*
An odd but enjoyable movie. The gingerbread men were the best part.
Body Count - 2

October 8
9. Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015)*
I liked getting to see how the film crew came to work with Elise. I jumped a lot and it was really creepy at points. The part with Quinn's mom was also really emotional.
Body Count - 1
10. The Shallows (2016)*
Some of the worst acting I've seen. I'm so glad I didn't see this at the theaters. I'm glad Steven Seagull survived though. And I now know how versatile a surf top is.
Body Count - 3

October 9
11. The Other Side of the Door (2016)*
Well that was depressing. Not very scary and just not that good. Plus they killed a dog so they suck in my book.
Body Count - 3

October 10
12. 1408 (2007)*
This was both sad and creepy. I love John Cusack and he's as likable as ever in this movie.
Body Count - 0
13. From Within (2008)*
I have mixed feelings about this one. Neat premise and some good actors but not amazing but it was a more creative story. The lessons I'm taking from this one are :
Small town church people are dangerous.
If you think someone is a witch they probably are.
Adults in horror films are either evil or useless.

Body Count - 15

October 11
13.5. Teen Wolf - Ep. 1.1 "Wolf Moon"*
14. Teen Wolf - Ep. 1.2 "Second Chance at First Line"*

October 12
14.5. Supernatural - Ep. 13.1 "Lost and Found"*

October 13
15. Supernatural - Ep. 12.22 "Who We Are"

October 14
15.5. Teen Wolf - Ep. 1.3 "Pack Mentality"*
16. Teen Wolf - Ep. 1.4 "Magic Bullet"*

October 15
17. The Babysitter (2017)*
Utterly bizarre and really funny. Loved the one guy's Friday the 13th sound effects.
Body Count - 8

October 16
17.5. Teen Wolf - Ep. 1.5 "The Tell"*
18. Teen Wolf - Ep. 1.6 "Heart Monitor"*

October 17
19. Happy Death Day (2017)*
This movie was smart and a lot of fun. I laughed and jumped and tried to figure it out. It was like a big fun puzzle.
Body Count - 18

October 18
19.5. Teen Wolf - Ep. 1.7 "Night School"*
20. Teen Wolf - Ep. 1.8 "Lunatic"*

October 19
21. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2016)*
This move was a bit of a letdown. The premise was good and since it was the last in the series I wanted to enjoy it more. I think bringing back less of the characters from previous films was a mistake. I've now seen all the films in this franchise.
Body Count - 33
