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. I enjoyed the dramatic weight in Diary of a Mad Black Woman but that seems to be missing here and it's either Madea hamming it up or a lackluster kids scaring old people plot. 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 but much of it is a bore.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. Especially artfully constructed that rewards patience. 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, those are fun but I came for the hillbilly mummy. 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. The lead having an unreliable prospective and often prone to strange hallucinations carries the film. 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 that is maybe too much setup and too little standalone mummy chaos. The mummy is oddly sexualized. 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 because they're not especially well done even if they're practical (not computer generated), bucks the formula for creature films with the smart ending. 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. Hokey sci fi props round things out well. 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. Splatter everywhere. 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 but no way can you take it seriously. I think it'd have been better for then to make a standard Jason movie but if they needed to 'jump the shark' by going in space it could have been much worse. 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. A great reflection of magical realism establishing a suburban landscape then twisting it into a gorey backdrop of comedy horror. 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. I like zombie Jason vs 'crazy' Tommy. 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 but it's standout family entertainment. 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. People have told me this movie parallels Gnosticism doctrine in a convincing way that makes me see there's more depth here but it's still not for me. An odd mix of religious allegory and splatter that makes one wonder what target audience they're gunning for. 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 and some of the 'humor' is more cringe worthy than funny. Cabin Fever might be my least favorite Eli Roth film. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
84. Audrey Rose (1977, 103 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Overly long for the content falling into a diluted legal 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 is original if not over long. 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. There were a few lackluster segments but many were especially good and it's frantic enough to keep things well paced. 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. I liked the ABCs of Death films, maybe more than most, but these are not standouts. 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). The end twist is iconic. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
89. Torture Garden (1967, 93 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Slow going anthology but well acted with some clever twists. It's a very British feeling film, subdued with lots of setup. 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 and a fun kid friendly witch chase. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
91. Trick R Treat (2007, 83 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Slow going anthology but well acted with some clever twists. I think it's over rated with the seasonal emphasis being low hanging fruit for a film with some great imagery, moments, and interconnected tales but much of the run time is hit and miss. I liked Tales of Halloween better. 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 seem too staged but overall an impressive effort and return to form of straight horror for the doll. 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 playing such a far out scenario straight with gusto. 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 expert with so little being revealed for much of the run time using atmosphere hinting at more going on than you see on screen. 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 with a memorable ending. 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 here and the nonchalant approach to supernatural rape revenge. 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. It gets carried away in plot explaining imagery and has some gutsy moments. 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] (7 hours, 35 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 unconvincingly acted. 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] (10 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 slacker 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. Moody set designs steal the show. 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. The unmasking is just the beginning. 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. This feels like a clever short film painfully padded to feature length. If you think old people are funny, rapping kids are cute, or find frights in adult diapers this is the film for you. 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] (12 hours, 23 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 for a shameless mix of no budget effects and action but not far out enough or good/bad enough to be especially memorable. 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 providing interesting social commentary. One of the more memorably/intense introductions. 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. Unfavorably dated. 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. Some of the design is rough (most backgrounds are nondescript) and a twist is too convenient but I had fun. 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 (Mosley's 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 design and development in Austin adapting an older newspaper printing plant into the underground catacombs. 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. This film scared me and has refreshingly original plot. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX] 1st Viewing

October 22 [Twins / Doppelgangers Theme Night] (12 hours, 52 minutes watched)
125. I Am Not A Serial Killer (2016, 104 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Slow going character piece with an oddball macabre teen keyed into unusual murders; the premising is interesting and it's artful but the pacing is slower than my taste and that lead seems so intentionally odd it's distracting. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
126. Plus One (2013, 96 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Leaves such unexplainable questions that it's more style over substances, rhetorical over having any actual message but it's abstract enough that I think you can interpret it how you like with some clever creepy twists and a fun party atmosphere. Format: Streaming [Shudder - free trial]. Theme Subset
127. Nina Forever (2015, 99 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ Unexpectedly good with bizzard visuals/twists serving up a dark romantic 'comedy' with dramatic chops. It's gory and funny but intense and played a lot more straight than the premise would suggest tackling bittersweet themes of grief and coming to terms. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
128. Dead Ringers (1988, 117 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Complicated character drama slow burn that's dry in placed and not as great as I had expected but I think it's the type of film that might get better on multiple viewings since parts of it seem so subtle/slow. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
129. Murder Weapon (1989, 82 minutes) ★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Awkward low budget slasher with an over exaggerated backstory and poor acting, might be 'so bad it's good' as b-movie cheese but I wasn't in the mood for it. If you want to see extended scenes Linnea Quigley tactlessly telling dirty stories to a psychiatrist for her way out of a psychiatric hospital then this is the move for you (I know that doesn't sound bad, but it is). Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing
130. Teen Lust (2014, 82 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Satanic sex comedy that's cute and fast paced but not outright funny, a lighthearted diversion that flaunts morality in action packed oddball mania. It seems really familiar, can't tell if I've seen it before or just other modern satanic cult stuff - maybe like Todd and the Book of Pure Evil in spirit. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
131. Long Weekend (1978, 97 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Eerie environmental tales, sort of a ghost story with nature - some of the plot explaining distress between the couple seems stretched but otherwise creepy and subtle film. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing
132. Chasity Bites (2013, 95 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Vivid teen comedy film, like Clueless, centered about Countess Bathory (who was always interesting to me). Often more silly than funny with an interesting plot updating the Bathory mythos for modern times but often too campy for it's own good - kicks into more action during second half but never shows more than a glimmer of promise or originality. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing

October 23 [Storm Weather Theme Night] (9 hours, 36 minutes watched)
133. One Dark Night (1982, 98 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Slow going with an unusual premise and a great mausoleum setting, some queasy effects when things start happening but it takes so very long getting there. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
134. Knock Knock (2015, 99 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ One of the better 'torture porn' style shock films due to being more subdued with gleefully devious characters and tense plot adding sexual and moral elements to the distress, the plot isn't as convincing but it's dark fun and pays off. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
135. House (1986, 93 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Cartoonish haunted house movie with strange imagery that's anything but subtle giving a sort of malicious Muppets feel that is a lot of fun, there's not much plot other than whatever the house throws at Roger so no telling quite what to expect but also sort of non-sequitur. Format: Blu-ray. Theme
136. Viral (2016, 89 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Pandemic feel with some cool blood coughing and two girls lost in the middle of it all. There are some neat effects occasionally hurt by digital imagery and the plot is subdued (focusing on just two girls in one house) for such a widespread chaos but it mostly works. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing
137. Needle (2010, 90 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Gruesome voodoo mystery with some cool murders and an unusual device that's a cut above a lot of modern 'college kid' horror films in part due to the graphic deaths and favorably oddball mysticism. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing
137b. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966, 25 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ It's the great pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
138. Ghoul (2012, 82 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Made for tv movie with lukewarm acting and limited production values that hits some of the same country 'band of kids' notes as Stand By Me but in a less convencing way spoiled with hints of child abuse and steeped local lore surrounding a creature in the cemetery. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing

October 24 [Hispanic Theme Night] (10 hours, 48 minutes watched)
139. The Loreley's Grasp [Las Garras De Lorelei] (1974, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Interesting creature feature with romance, gore, and eccentric hunters across the Spanish countryside - just the right amount of camp and creature. It's never a big secret who or what the Loreley is resulting in a strange enchantment surrounding the thing with most conflict being in dramatic interactions. Some atmospheric settings. Format: Blu-ray. Theme
140. Juan of the Dead (2011, 100 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Relentlessly silly political allegory with zombies often stage dressing for one joke after another and a few cool action posing scenes. There are a few moments that are painfully unoriginal (like exactly copying the 'I kick ass for the lord' line from Dead Alive). I think I would enjoy the film more if I knew Cuba's history better - it seems like the film is equating zombies to communism at times with our heros being capitalist and scenes of conflict under Che portraits hint that there's more depth. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
141. Night of the Werewolf [El Retorno Del Hombre Lobo] (1981, 93 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Atmospheric slickly produced horror camp with an elaborate backstory involving blood countesses, a werewolf, and vampires. It's humorous how Naschy often writes himself in as a charismatic hero, a sort of grandiose wish fulfillment even if he does have a commanding stage presence. There's a lot of moving pieces here but the finale is especially cool and the werewolf effects are dated but fun. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme
142. Happy Death Day (2017, 97 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Cute film with some energy that is a refreshing who-dun-it and what it's lacking in scares it makes up for in heart with a tense need to find out the killer. Format: Theatrical. 1st Viewing
143. Boo 2! A Madea Halloween (2017, 101 minutes) ★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Marginally better than the first with more focus on actual spooks but it can't get past the Madea cornball comedy that drags down the film so much, it's amazing that people bring there young kids to these movies. I think there's a lot of potential for ethnic horror comedy movies but these seem to be far too basic to really work with, for example a large portion of the movie consisting of Madea's squad sitting in a living room then sitting in a car rehashing one note jokes. Format: Theatrical. 1st Viewing
144. Island of Lost Souls (1932, 71 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Classic man vs animal nature film. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing
145. Death Note (2017, 101 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ William Dafoe is excellent as a spikey dark jester god of death and the movie is far out enough that it's hard to tell what will happen. I dislike the 'super detective' trope some Japanese material uses because that's even more far out than the death book itself. I wonder how the original source manga compares to the film. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing

October 25 [IMBD Low Rating Theme Night] (8 hours, 4 minutes watched)
146. Convergence (2015, 100 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Dark hospital movie with a twist that's predictable but I'm a sucker for these sort of metaphysically staged navigating the afterlife, or is it the afterlife, world films. Format: Streaming [Neflix]. 1st Viewing
147. Hobgoblins (1988, 92 minutes) ★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ There's a lot of potential for a 'dark muppets' horror movies but this isn't it, not much plot and few Hobgoblins as a bunch of kids ham it up fighting with garden utensils, going to a club, and subjecting viewers to unintended horrors of Hobgoblins. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
148. Arachnophobia (1990, 110 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Spiders make for an unconventional movie with Jeff Daniels carrying the show. It's plotted in interesting segments including an introduction that sets things up nicely and a chaotic spiders everywhere blowout conclusion. Format: Streaming [thanks Alyxstarr].
149. When A Stranger Calls (1979, 97 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Classic urban legend introduction but painfully slow in the middle with a too little too late conclusion, it's clever of them to separate parts of the film across time but I wish they had done more with it. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing
150. Satanic (2016, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Serviceable dark magic film that's less about what will happen but more about how it will happen filled with dramatic irony. The satanism tourism segments are clever and the mysticism hard to swallow, it's unusual because there's not always a clear bad guy. Format: Streaming [Netflix].

October 26 [George Romero RIP Memorial Theme Night] (10 hours, 52 minutes watched)
151. Psychos in Love (1987, 88 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Cartoonish and sleazy with a fun emphasis on corny humor that's so unrelenting it's charming; a strange hybrid of romantic comedy, self aware parody, and low budget blood splatter. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing
152. The Crazies (1973, 103 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ The Crazies is one chaotic movie that wastes no time getting started; before you know it there are white hazmat suites everywhere. There's maybe too much going on but it definitely gives a good sense of panic. I love the idea that adults would just get inexplicably violent and this film initially smartly stays away from cheap shocks and gore focusing on the military command center and government prospective. Although I do think Romero's cynicism about government is a little too sarcastic/explicit at times. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme Subset
153. Monkey Shines (1988, 113 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Mediocre killer monkey movie that's overly long shoehorning an odd sci-fi experiment and while some elements are clever (that there's a monkey that might kill for a crippled person even against their wishes and their physically paralyzed to stop it) but it never really came together for me. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
154. Don't Kill It (2016, 84 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Dolph Lundgren demon hunter starts with a shotgun to the face and carries out in a fast paced manner despite some occasionally awkward acting from Dolph. The premise lends itself to dark humor and high body counts. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
155. The Black Room (2016, 91 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Part horror film part sex comedy that's not too raunchy flirting with parody at times but serves up a unique demonic plot oozing with mystery. Format: Streaming [Netflix].
156. The Eyes of My Mother (2016, 77 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Artistically short in black and white this disturbing film seems poetic but doesn't quite make sense because the lead is just so randomy deranged in a bittersweet way. Format: Streaming [Netflix].
157. The Burrowers (2008, 96 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Well paced atmospheric western horror with unusual fiends amid tons of scenic wheat grass and indians. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].

October 27 [Small Town Theme Night] (13 hours, 22 minutes watched)
158. Dig Two Graves (2014, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Strange mystical revenge film that delves into themes of grief and isn't quite clear where things are headed until the end so kept me interested as a kid bargains for the return of her dead brother from moonshiners around an atmospheric backwoods town/lake. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
159. Messiah of Evil (1973, 90 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ What a strange fever dream of a movie. The voiceover narration over leering shots really messes with the head. I love how there's just strange stuff happening with no explanation like the lead is just unaware she is in a horror movie that's developing all around her but not especially impacting her. The film does a lot with a beach setting and a few wide eyed people in suits. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
160. Deadly Dreams (1988, 80 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Eighties coming of age film pierced by hallucinatory scenes of shotgun violence that confuse the lead and twists into a bleak film with some mean spirited characters and bloody sight gags. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing
161. Phantasm (1979, 89 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ A surreal classic with lots of bizarre images and an epic score exploring themes of grief through strange fantasy. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
162. Phantasm II (1988, 97 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ I love sequels that are direct continuations and this road trip movie is fun expanding on Phantasm The spheres get an upgrade and there's a lot more sense of purpose as they hunt the Tall Man and his eerie dwarfs. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
163. Phantasm III: Lord of The Head (1994, 91 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ This one gets deliciously weird with nunchucks and cryogenics and even more upgraded spheres but the eerie weirdness cannot be beat and it really builds up in this one with some gutsy twists. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
164. Phantasm IV: Oblivion (1998, 90 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ This one felt more aimless with more wondering around and some backstory to Tall Man; it doesn't really seem to get anywhere. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
165. JeruZelam (2015, 94 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Shot in a unique first person style (using the gimmick of 'smart' glasses) there's some fantastic images that mostly seem too computer generated. It works because of the characters, the culturally unique setting, and the point of view gimmick but a lot of the horror elements fall flat. Format: Streaming [Netflix].
166. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992, 86 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Not far out or energetic enough to be as much fun as a movie about a high school vampire hunter could be, it's bizarre seeing PeeWee Herman as a vampire. I've enjoyed Buffy movie in the past but this time it just seemed to fall flat. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].

October 28 [Parties Theme Night] (11 hours, 48 minutes watched)
167. Phantasm: Ravager (2016, 86 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Special effects are frequently distracting and poor but it's great to see a sequel come through. Some of the 'questioning reality' elements seem like a cop out but a overall the continuation is nicely over the top and more 'wtf' than scary. It still doesn't feel like a proper close since the ending comes out of nowhere. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
168. Scouts' Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015, 93 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Vibrant energetic zombie humor with a feel good premise and some fun zombie splatter. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
169. House on Sorority Row (1983, 92 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Mean spirited teens get some comeuppance in a routine slasher filled with camera perspective obscured villainy made more interested by a cool weapon and some artful imagery that occasionally stands out.. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
170. It Came From Outer Space (1953, 81 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Familiar plot of space aliens infiltrating townspeople with some social commentary that seems typical of 1950s sci fi; enjoyable but conventional (even if this came out before some similar movies it feels done before). Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing
171. The Haunted Mansion (2003, 88 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Filled with the most typical Halloween haunted house imagery that often looks empty with an occasionally effective scene (skeletons) and a plot so thin there's not much hook. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
172. Girl vs. Monster (2012, 89 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ A poor man's Ghostbusters with some interesting ghosts (scarecrow guy is cool looking, bodily possession) and an upbeat teen bop party atmosphere. Sometimes kids movies pile on the camp and this one is no different but there's some charm behind the plastic toy ghost guns and low grade computer imagery. My daughter picked this one and it was a good family selection that even when my kids lost interest I enjoyed given tempered expectations. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
173. Belief: The Possession of Janet Moses (2015, 89 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Docudrama about the Wainuiomata Exorcism where interview segments narrate dramatic reenactments that initially seems to over explain events but then every thing falls into place and it tells a chilling true story. There are some potentially interesting cultural terms that don't feel as fleshed out. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
174. Home Invasion (2016, 90 minutes) ★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Laughably bad thriller with several stereotypical bad choices including characters who seem to hide in the middle of open rooms or villains who establish they have no time then waste it arguing. A heist movie with a slow moving house cat and mouse game and all parties inept. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing

October 29 [Synth Score Theme Night] (9 hours, 32 minutes watched)
175. The Fog [Commentary w/ John Carptenter & Debra Hill] (2016, 86 minutes) [Not rated] A lot of talk about lighting and set design including details on shooting schedules. I didn't find the commentary especially entertaining but, similar to their commentary on Halloween, John Carpenter and Debra Hill leave a good impression of how they managed to pull off scenes on less budget than is typical. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing [of Commentary] Theme Subset
176. Let's Be Evil (2016, 83 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Tense with a first person perspective that makes great use of lighting mostly around a long nondescript corridor and a pumping soundtrack add to the frights. A great example of style over substance where there's not much plot and what's there is mostly predictable but it's well executed splashed in colorful blinking lights and aural cues. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
177. It Follows (2014, 107 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Holds up well, the long shots, pacing, and wtf weirdness is to my taste. I can see how it's flawed; the creature is sometimes weird just to be weird - like peeing on itself, it's often nonsensical schlock. Some have said that It Follows is a metaphor for sexually transmitted diseases but I'd counter that It Follows uses sex as a transmission just to be provocative with no intelligent subtext (it's nothing like STDs, unless I'm totally missing things) and that sort of shallow gimmick is ok. Ultimately I feel like It Follows is just the right mix of fast pacing, provocative nonsense, and an original feeling concept. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
178. Sorority Row (2009, 101 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ They removed some of the more interesting parts of the original keeping only the general plot. Gone is the cool weapon from the first replaced with an odd multipurpose tire iron with different utility knife like attachments. The twist in the original was more lurid and nicely strange, here it's really pedestrian. As a modern slasher Sorority Row is ok, nothing standout but as a remake it's a let down. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing
179. Gremlins (1984, 107 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Gremlins is a clasic, I love the energy and the great special effects work. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
180. Cooties (2014, 88 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Great premise with well executed script from an assortment of good actors but the ending is a let down. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing

October 30 [Satanic / Witches Theme Night] (10 hours, 22 minutes watched)
181. Witchtrap [aka The Presence] (1989, 92 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Not great acting and strangely poor production values adds has some charm. Some of the effects were unintentionally funny but others, especially towards the end, more memorable. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
182. Eden Lake (2008, 91 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Relentlessly bleak with some smart plot twists; some of the character motives seem questionable at times but this is one brutal film. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
183. The Devil's Domain (2016, 93 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Campy high school wish fulfillment exploring typical teen tropes with gory sarcasm and relentless exaggeration using social media elements as plot devices that leads to misery and inflated comeuppance; it's a farce more than it is scary with some cheap latex effects and some bittersweet drama. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing Theme
184. Havenhurst (2016, 85 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Mediocre film that I thought would be predictable given the moral tone to sinners disappearing but, while hardly original, it wasn't as predictable as I'd anticipated but the cliches are used effectively and I'll remember this more than other similar films I watched even if the mechanics are far fetched. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
185. Nightmare Before Christmas (1993, 76 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ I never especially got into Nightmare Before Christmas until my kids started enjoying it, my daughter was super excited to see Nightmare this year and wanted to wait until as close to Halloween as possible. It's a whimsical film filled with near constant sight gags surrounding a premise that's clever but plays out in the most obvious ways. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing
186. Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016, 100 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Featuring one creepy kid and retro period stagings the slow burn pacing stars the family of a fake medium grieving their father comforted by a priest grieving the loss of his wife with a rich plot that draws on an otherworldly and unexpected part of history and uses some typical scare tactics is effective ways. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX].
187. [Adding together partial credit viewings 32B & 138B, these totaled 70 minutes]
188. Lake Bodom (2016, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ Taunt film with smart twists and a memorable ending, it's got an atmospheric campsite feel and just when it feels most predictable some follow-up happens that tilts things, seems to toy with conventions in intelligent ways to administer memorable shocks. Format: Streaming [Shudder].

October 31 [Halloween / Samhain Theme Night] (12 hours, 29 minutes watched)
189. Hack-O-Lantern [aka Halloween Night] (1988, 87 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Hack-O-Lantern might be the definition of 'so bad it's good,' my favorite part is when a hair metal band seems to just appears out of nowhere to narrate part of the film in full octane song or a strange buttocks branding. There's a twist at the end that's good. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme
190. Jack-O (1995, 89 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Self aware cheap thriller with meta tv clips, a cartoonish back story, and unusual killer. I'd heard of Jack-O when it out of print DVD commanded high prices but the reviews seemed so bad, I can see the appeal - it's a film steeped in Halloween atmosphere with an cheesy but eerie tone combining things like cheap special effects and dramatic soundtrack cues in a cornfield graveyard on Halloween. Format: DVD. [size=1][COLOR="green"]
191. Bird With the Crystal Plumage (1970, 96 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Stylish and well staged thriller featuring an amateur detective sleuthing around to piece together an attempted murder he witnessed, it's got a cool twist and enough bloodsplatter to keep things interesting. I'll admit I'm not a big giallo fan (they tend to be too procedural and sometimes slow) but I enjoyed Bird. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing
192. Better Watch Out (2016, 89 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Mean spirited take on holiday cheer that ended up different than I thought it would, probably better watching with the less you know in advance. A tense thriller with an unusual premise that's gleefully over the top. My wife felt like some of the younger actors were poor to a fault and successfully predicted a twist early on. I enjoyed it but parts come across juvenile and motives are not also convincing other than to justify some of the schlock. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing
193. Dave Made a Maze (2017, 81 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ A silly concept of a guy building a cardboard maze in his apartment living room that's actually a cavernous deathtrap complete with Minotaur and different metaphysical impediments. There are enough gags and constant twists that it's entertaining. The plot is straightforward but the onslaught of different maze mechanics is entertaining, while over the top the actors do a good job of keeping things dramatically anchored so despite the surroundings it never feels too far fetched. It's not an obvious 'horror' film but has elements. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing
194. Monster House (2006, 91 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ A seasonal favorite with the kids. I like the idea of a kids haunted house movie and a lot of the tone is spot on but the backstory here is awkward. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. Theme
195. Carnage Park (2016, 81 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Fast paced with a gritty 'grindhouse' retro feel, weaves back and forth in time with manic hillbilly energy. I like some of the grindhouse sensibilities that make this plot so outrageous but some of the editing tricks are distracting - seems intentionally pink to mimic an aged reel, which gives a strange warmth but takes away from the film or some occasional flickering gas mask figure interludes. Ultimately this was too pastiche and was not ironic, brutal, or strange enough to be memorable. Format: Streaming [Vudu HDX]. 1st Viewing
196. The Simpsons' Treehouse of Terror [XX and XXI from Seasons 21-22 (2009-2010, 44 minutes) [No Star Ranking] Not prime Treehouse of Terror but they had some fun segments, like an town with an assortment of vampires. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme [Wildcard]
197. Halloween (1978, 91 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ The Halloween films have never been my favorites, but I appreciate the fleshed out suburban setting and Donald Pleasance as an Ahab like character is good. The Shape is an especially creepy and mysterious stalker in this first installment and I think I've had trouble appreciating just the original without the years of mythos and culture that surrounds the franchise and later installments. Format: Blu-ray. Theme

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
Would I survive? Feral children are being haunted by an angry ghost! I would definitely do some investigating - I can't help it. However, I'm not going to go off by myself to creep around the woods at night. Verdict: ALIVE

October 18th
39. The Mummy's Hand (Christy Cabanne, 1940 / United States)
Would I survive? Another mummy is running around an archaeological dig! As a handy American scholar of Egyptian lore, I'll fill in some backstory as well as the main entourage. Thankfully, I'm not a native, so I'll walk away. Verdict: ALIVE

40. The Mummy's Tomb (Harold Young, 1942 / United States)
Would I survive? The mummy is roaming the American countryside, murdering the members of the last entourage. What a minute... I was a part of that entourage! I'll try to raise the alarm, but the local authorities won't believe me. Dejected, I'll try to leave town but be strangled by the mummy! Verdict: DEAD BY MUMMY

October 21st
41. The Phantom of the Opera (Rupert Julian, 1952 / United States / 1929 version)
Would I survive? I love the opera! I hate dark, dank cellars. I'll stay in my own box, never venturing near Box 5. While I'll miss a bunch of the action, I'll get to see some good shows and stay... Verdict: ALIVE

October 22nd
42. A Nightmare on Elm Street (Wes Craven, 1984 / United States)
Would I survive? I'm alarmed by the horrific dream that plague me and my friends. When Tina dies, I freak out and believe I'm going crazy. Since I'm not final girl material, I'm fodder for the second act body count. I suspect that my sexuality will play into my demise.Verdict: DEAD AND TIRED

43. The Mummy's Ghost (Reginald Le Borg, 1944 / United States)
Would I survive? Toward the beginning of the movie, a professor will explain that the mummy wiped out the entire party of the last expedition to Egypt. So I'm... Verdict: DEAD BEFORE THE BEGINNING

44. The Mummy's Curse (Leslie Goodwins, 1944 / United States)
Would I survive? Twenty-five years have passed since the mummy sank into the swamp. Somehow the monstrous creature has migrated to Louisiana. Oh, yeah, and I'm still dead. Couldn't be retconned into life. Verdict: DEAD TWO MOVIES AGO

October 24th
45. Death Becomes Her (Robert Zemeckis, 1992 / United States / DVD)*

48. Dracula's Daughter (Lambert Hillyer, 1936 / United States)*
Would I survive? It's difficult to get yourself killed in Universal Horror sequels. I'm good at keeping my head down and not strolling through London at night so I imagine I get to attend some upscale parties and not realize that vampires are even a thing. Verdict: ALIVE

49. Son of Dracula (Robert Siodmak, 1943 / United States)*
Would I survive? I've been effected by vacations before. I come back from a trip and feel... different. I would totally fall under the spell of Dracula while journeying through Europe.

55. Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (Charles Lamont, 1955 / United States)
Would I survive? Unlike my last couple of vacations, I feel like I would survive this particular expedition. I would refuse to dress up as the titular Mummy at any point, so I'm at least running through the tomb in my linen suit and pith helmet! Verdict: ALIVE AND STYLISH

56. American Satan (Ash Avildsen, 2017 / United States)*
Would I survive? While I would initially reject the idea of bargaining with the devil for fame, I would cave to the demands. However, natural self-esteem issues and guilt over our actions would drive me to drink. I'm spending the last act in an alcoholic haze. Verdict: DRUNKENLY ALIVE

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.

(3.5 out of 5)
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.

(3 out of 5)
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.

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.

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: I actually really enjoyed this cheesy 80's Mummy/Alien monster movie. This movie finds an archeologist and his student aids examining an unusual skeleton found buried in Tutankhamun's tomb. The mummy is awakened when one of the students swipes some bizarre precious jewels from the sarcophagus. It's a by the numbers 80's slasher after that with a Mummy instead of a madman. The ending is over the top bad but the ride was quite enjoyable for fans of such fluff. Also there is a MST3k track available for this I am going to have to track down and Chad is super jazzed about part 2.

(4 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Eventually I will get thru this Eye On Horror set. This film is based on the real life crimes of Lam Kwok-wai, serial rapist, is an enjoyable if uneven experience. There are lots of extended and perhaps overly romanticized rape scenes. And the pervasive humor feels out of place in a movie about a serial rapist/murderer. But what I really liked here was the cat and mouse game with the police and Lam Kwok-wai. The tension when the female officer goes out of sight, the late night stake outs in these open atrium apartment buildings, it those little geographical/cultural differences in police work that work for me. The movie was passable but most will not find it any more than just average.

(3 out of 5)
My Thoughts: It's a little strange watching this Weinstein production co-staring Rose McGowen now. She seemed to be over whatever happened post/pre Scream if she agreed to star in this... I haven't seen the theatrical cut of Grindhouse since it's first run a decade ago. And man I forgot how good those trailers were! Planet Terror was a goopy gory shark jumping romp. And QT's Deathproof is just as fun and really hits that 70's car horror perfectly. So I am sold on the package, obviously I paid to see this first run, bought the extended versions on DVD and now have purchased the Blu-Ray. My three nit picks here are: I wish Kurt Russell was a hair less whiny in the final reel of Deathproof, that the option to watch the extended versions of the movie as a double feature existed and that this included a Robert Rodriguez 10 minute cooking school, I would love to have stolen his BBQ recipe.

(4.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: I know rating Once Bitten a 5 out of 5 is going to raise some eyebrows. But this movie played on loop during my childhood. It's what I expected high school to be like, needless to say that realization turned out to be pretty disappointing. I love the soundtrack to this I distinctly remember recording the songs off VHS and onto cassette tape so that I could listen to them on the go. While I have never actually lol'd during this movie (that I can remember) the comic beats are all very enjoyable. This movie does of course star Jim Carey and that is most likely why it got so much play for me there in the 90's. Looking back at it I am not sure how much appeal it might have as a first time view to new viewers but for me it's a classic, it's one of those movies that I could watch every year and still not get bored of it. One weird thing I was thinking abut during this viewing is the gay panic scene, an 80's comedy staple. But I do foresee people being unjustly offended by it, none the less. Funny that it probably offended people on the far right when it first came out and now it will offend people on the far left. What is happening to this country? Can't we all just enjoy a vampire teen sex comedy? One last note, this blu-ray does look amazing and it is quite the upgrade from my previous VHS copy. I do with there had been some special features on here, any special features, but hey at least you get the other vampire comedy (fans of that movie are probably thinking the same thing).

My Thoughts: Classic bag head Jason. There is so much recap at the beginning of this movie like 6 minutes worth (I am writing this several days later so that might not be quite an accurate stat) like they are expecting a ton of people who never watched the first one will have a hard time following the highly cerebral plot. Also I think Jason's revenge here at the beginning of the movie is the farthest he ever gets away from Crystal Lake until part 8. Well, depending on how far away she lived but it didn't seem like a woodsy small town residence. This was very frequently my pick for best of the series and it still bobbles around in the top 4 even with my changing tastes over the years. 2, 3 and 4 span the mortal Jason story arc and that grounding makes them a little more real and more potentially frightening. Also hard to go wrong with an 80's slasher. I did find it somewhat peculiar that there was no audio commentary on this one? It is the only one on the set besides part 3 that doesn't have a commentary and the DVD set From Crystal Lake to Manhattan has a track for part 3! For a "complete" set this hodgepodge of special features is annoying.

My Thoughts: This Big Lot clearance title with the horrible cover was way better than I ever would have expected. It's about an office retreat gone when a blocked road sets our group of coworkers on foot and into a killer hillbilly situation. Except it's in Europe so they're more refined than your typical southern inbred murder family types. It was never really a laugh out loud movie but it didn't have annoying gags either it was nice dry British humor. I was also weird to see how drugs and prostitutes seemed way more non-hyperbolic in this movie given the setting. I liked it, good mix of slasher and comedy, well worth the $3 asking price.

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: A sort of unpleasant sharp almost chemical scent sits on top.. and it definitely matches the caliber of the beer. Unassuming and creamy at first turns into this messy apricot bitterness that is not hitting marzen for me at all. I had intended to wait and try some of this at room temp but I nodded off, so we will just have to go with our first mediocre impression.

My Thoughts: I am pretty forgiving of bad 80’s movies but wow this was bad. Any charm that the first movie had is gone in this sequel. A completely new cast inherit another dilapidated house with an evil secret. Heavy handed voiceovers, overacting, lackluster effects and really just a lazy plot make this disappointing even as a spoof. I'm not saying that that the original was award worthy or anything, but it was decent. This was way too much; lets ham it up for the camera. I think this could have done exactly the same as as a cartoon and been way more successful. There was at least a plethora of ghouls though and the grandfather was pretty cool. That being said I have no intention of watching this again for personal enjoyment, but it should play great for my daughter when she hits 5 or so.

My Thoughts: This feels like an old idea, I mean it is Groundhog Day as a horror movie but is just something abut it that seems familiar. And I guess it could have even been this as this movie was in development for a decade. Originally to star a pre-Jennifer's Body Megan Fox the decade of development and recasting did not ruin this property. In fact I found this movie quite endearing, you start out with this terrible slasher fodder character and then over the course of the movie you actually start to like her. The Groundhog Day find your killer rift was a blast to watch, especially during the gather intel on the main suspects montage. I had guessed the killer from the preview but 10 minutes in I was completely sold that I was wrong. I wonder if alternate endings exist for this movie. It might be fun to watch a Clue style version of this on Blu next year. And that really tells you all you need to know about how I feel about this movie, I have seen it and still intend to purchase a physical copy.

(4 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Ha, a track that mentions Dracula Vs Frankenstein. This is a Fred Olen Ray solo commentary and it highly informative. All your questions about the weird editing, problems with the MPAA and even the terrible quality of the blu-ray. This commentary was more cohesive and in it's self told a better story than the movie did. About a young film maker with an ultra low budget making deals with shady distributors that recut his film. I have a greater appreciation for what is essentially a lackluster film due to this track, it's why commentary is my favorite special feature.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Thoughts: The terrifying story of Billy Batson, a spirit trapped on the mortal coil who haunts his local college trying trying to tie up unfinished business. Just kidding, it's about a guy who dodges the door to heaven because there is this one broad he really has to nail. I used a wildcard here because even though the main character is technically a 'ghost' for the majority of this movie the whole thing really just plays like a typical sex comedy, with the bonus of your main character being able to go invisible to make gratuitous changing room scenes more ... plausible? There was certainly a lot of appreciable nudity in this movie. In fact I saw this movie a long time ago as a boy and that particular element left quite the impression on me. So much so that I dubbed the tape and it still sits unwatched in the last vestiges of my VHS collection. I wasn't even entirely sure that this was the same movie when I bought the DVD. Anyway, the movie is ok it's a low budget 80's college sex comedy, you know the drill. Enjoyable but otherwise nothing of great note.

(3 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Set up exactly like the first movie where people breaking into a seemingly empty house decide that now is the perfect time to watch some of the VHS tapes strewn about. I felt like I liked some of these segments better than the first movie but looking back at my review for that one yields different results. Our first story revolves around a man who's new artificial eye allows him to see the dead and to hook up with goth chicks. Then we have the worst of the group a tepid boring zombie in the woods story. Coming in at number 3 was, in my opinion the strongest segment and the one most in line with the feel of the original, a demonic cult with results. We wrap up with a decent but very The Fourth Kind derivative alien abduction segment. Not a bad crop of stories although that zombie segment should really have been dropped for something else (reminded me of Redneck Zombies somehow). I think I am going to have to make V/H/S 3 (or Viral.. that doesn't bode well) a part of this challenge.

My Thoughts: Post apocalyptic surgery, always a risky endeavor, I am always reminded of that appendix removal scene from The Stand, so many simple medical issues turn into automatic death sentences. Also Troy... a blow to the head and lets walk away, he's coming back. In true Walking Dead fashion everyone runs back into each other again, we have an extended Mexican stand off and a season ending base destruction. It was big but a bit bland too, I am ready for OG Walking Dead to come back so I can watch another group of people make poor post apocalyptic decisions.

My Thoughts: Oh, blurry picture. I am sorry, there was beer involved. Smells a little like bleach pumpkin spice and river water. There is an idea, pumpkin spice scented cleaning products. It does fare much better in the taste department. Fullbodied wheaty with a strong nutmeg/pumpkinspice aftertaste. Excellent balance and highly drinkable. This has been a favorite of years past last year's note was "the guy equivalent of a Pumpkin Spice Latte".

(4.5 out of 5)

My Thoughts: A very pleasant smelling beer, you get that wonderful caramel marzen scent on top, this really hits those Oktoberfest notes. But unfortunate the taste does not match up with the smell. Has a very bitter burnt liquorish taste that lingers on the middle of your tongue. Reminded me of weird liqueur or mixed drink up front with a light carbonated finish. As it warms that initial bite does dissipate and it starts to develop more traditional marten flavoring but still not what I would call a good marzen. It has been awhile since i had this during a challenge and oddly enough the last time I did (during the 2013 challenge) I made a note that this one was over carbonated. That is certainly not the case this year, although the flavor did fare better that year as well.

(2.5 out of 5)
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: It's weird watching this now because you have this vision in your head of what a Tim Burton movie will look like and while this does have certain notes and style choices it's not the complete TB
experience we have come to expect. And I think I like it better because of that. It felt more like it's own story instead of another Burton-ing. It has been quite awhile since I have seen this one as when it originally came out HBO ran it into the ground and and I just watched it way too many times (that was back before I had expendable income to spend on copious amounts of physical media). I generally liked this version, Depp and Ricci were great together and I liked the upgrading of the material. The weakest part for me was, surprisingly, was Christopher Walken who's makeup and prosthetic teeth are so ridiculous that even he couldn't act his way through them. Not the first or the last adaptation of this material but a good one.

(3.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Harsh chemical pumpkin spice and rye bread spell. Woof... that beer... Has a super bitter chalky coffee wallop with an unpleasant lingering aftertaste that permittes the back of the tonge and top of the mouth. And it requires some effort to get that taste out of your mouth. Lets see if I can accurately articulate this flavor adventure... It's sort of like a carbonated black coffee that someone has crushed aspirin into. Yikes that is hard to drink.

(1 out of 5)

My Thoughts: Well, maybe not quite a seasonal beer but I have always held Warsteiner as an Oktoberfest staple. Crisp sharp smell, actually a bit cheap smelling for my image of a Warsteiner, almost domestic in scent. Very smooth with an interesting bitter sting that starts on the middle back of your tonge and shoots up the sides. It lingers on the back of the pallet in a not wholly unpleasant barley manner and it give you the feeling that you have been drinking for awhile after just a few sips. Fairs a better as it warms but overall strikes me as remarkably ordinary for a German beer.

(3 out of 5)


My Wife's Taste: First taste bitter but crisp afterward mmmm pretty good but if people like bitter beer might like ti doesn’t taste any alcohol.
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.

B-18). Avery Brewing Company: Pump[KY]n
(1988) (VHS)
(Colorado)
My Thoughts: John Locke! I bought this tape in the bargin bin in a drug store when I was a kid and it creeped me the fuck out for a long time. I guess young me was hoping for a monster movie as opposed to a messed up psychological one. Pin is about a kid who becomes transfixed with his fathers anatomical model, learns to make it talk via non-conscious ventriloquism and then uses it to kill, kind of? Oh and his sister is a slut. This is one of those movies that makes you uncomfortable, I am not talking about in a stalker/killer situation but in a crazy in every day situations kind of way. Killers that turn down offered sexual encounters are always creepier. I am reminded of the much less polished Scream Bloody Murder from the first half of the challenge, perhaps more effective as a murderer but way less effective in the creep out arena. Despite my checkers history with this one, it is a good movie and and a great example of a mild horror movie that leaves a bigger impression then it's more bombastic contemporaries.

My Thoughts: Smells like rubbing alcohol, coffee and oatmeal. Has a strong sweet liqueur flavor, very light carbonation and is sort of sickly sweet. This taste like something you would drink to get shitfaced in a hurry. These burbon barreled beers always make for a weird flavor experience. Yager and brown ale ( but mostly yager). Not really getting the pumpkin flavor there is just too much competing sensations with this one. You know really this is kind of gross, and if it didn't have any alcohol in it there is no way I would be drinking it. But man you can feel it once you down this bottle. In fact I was in such an improved mood I was thinking of giving this a 3.5 for being a unique flavor adventure. But no...no...

My Wife's Taste: Eh smells like soy sauce, very sweet like lamb or something. If you like sweet beer you might like it... aftertaste is pretty good but smells stinks.

My Thoughts: Tricked again and now I have somehow watched 2 French horror movies this challenge. So needless to say I was in a super receptive mood at the onset of this picture. But wow did this brutal home invasion movie win me over. It's about a very pregnant woman who on the day she is set to go to the hospital to give birth another crazy lady decides she wants that baby, and the only way to get it is violent way. It almost falls into the torture porn category but it just doesn't feel like one. It's kind of like the fight scene from They Live except with murder and cutting and stretched out for the entire length of the movie. It's amazing fun for such a trashy premise. Although I could have done with less from inside the womb shots. But it is French, so you can pretend like it's classy. Should have watched this with the wife.

My Thoughts: Another not technically seasonal beer but it's horror themed, so that count, right? Who am I kidding, no one is even reading this, they are just looking at the pictures. A thick opaque beer with lots of sediment floating around, it does make you slightly apprehensive to drink it considering it’s namesake. Like maybe that is little bits of a ground up corpse or something. Smells of sour apple and barley. Unassuming entrance quickly turns into an aggressive bitter liquorish chili affair. A deep brown chore to drink but that 10% abv really helps.

My Thoughts: I remember this as Blockbuster rent bait back in the day, I enjoyed it but never really was amazed or anything. Revisiting it now with it's new cache as being the Del Toro Directors Cut I liked it more than I remember. I wonder what the differences are between this and the theatrical cut that I rented those two decades ago. The premise of Mimic has stuck with me all these years. The artificial bug released into the wild that was suppose to all die off after it's job was completed was fascinating to think about. A sort of evolution gone wrong cautionary tale, well wrong from our point of view at any rate. There is another weird connection to the Harvey Weinstein scandal with this movie, I think that is the 3rd Weinstein connection this challenge for me. Anyway a decent movie from a time when decent horror was few and far between.

My Thoughts: Ah, this was just what I needed right now. A death in the family had me bummed out and this brought me right back up. This movie follows 3 nerdy 16ish year old boys who never left this movie's equivalent of the Boy Scouts. As you can imagine they are made fun of and ridiculed for this life choice, that is until a zombie outbreak puts their Scouting skills to the test, frequently to comedic effect. Great zombie fx, likable characters, well plotted and with plenty of nudity and even some great zombie boobs. There were a few comedic beats that did fall flat but overall I found great pleasure in watching this. I would put it just a hair underneath Zombieland in the zombcom sub-subgenre. Also where is that Zombieland sequel the internet keeps talking about?

My Thoughts: Come on Indian lady, you can't trust white people with your people's ancient secret. There was no way she wasn't going to open that door! I had never heard anything about this movie, I suppose because it seems more targeted towards 20-35 year old women. Unlike the other similarly aimed horror movie I watched this challenge, XX, this one held some appeal. I know this is a very white thing to say but I always enjoy horror movies about white people living in foreign countries. You get that fish out of water, isolation in a populated area and it's just visually way more interesting. This one is about a family that moves to India, has a child killing car crash, then flirts with the other side and lets the boys spirit back into their life to mixed results. Interesting date movie with a few chills and hey, the bluray came with a coloring book as the insert!

My Thoughts: This was the first Mel Brooks movie that I didn't like as a kid. It just didn't appeal to me back then except for a few key scenes. But watching it now it really fits in with his body of work and is amusing enough that I was little disappointed over the lack of the blu on it. At the time I had thought Brooks was off his game but watching it now it does seem that this was more part of Leslie Nielsens slide in quality. This movie mainly spoofs the 1992 Bram Stoker's Dracula, a movie that I really need to revisit again, and not much else. That might have also been one of my initial issues with this property but viewing it in the context of this challenge it played just fine. The comedy is a bit tired for the most part but there are still a few scenes that really do it for me; the staking being the main one. Also there is a Brooks commentary on here that I am looking forward to listening to.

(3 out of 5)
My Thoughts: A black and white documentary on witchcraft, satanic rituals and the history of witch trials in England. The historical part of this documentary was somewhat interesting but unfortunately the majority of the content here is re-enactments of rituals and spells. Naked re-enactments. They are overly long and contain not really exemplary nudity. I suppose in 1970 when this came out the extended full frontal nudity was quite the draw. For the most part I wished I was just watching Haxxan again.

(2.5 out of 5)

My Thoughts: SPOILERS AHEAD. And in the case of this movie I would really recommend going in fresh, not that the big reveal is so amazing it's just that it's so ridiculous that for full effect I would go in blind and maybe liquored up too. So, since you were warned; he was in the wall! He must have kept very well bathed or else you would have though that The Walking Dead's Maggie would have smelled him. The whole thing is almost an insult to the audience, you get invested in the ghost story and then, never mind, creepy guy in the wall. It's worth watching at least once for the experience, dumb fun.

My Thoughts: Solo track with the completely non-connected to the source material writer/director Roger Avery doesn't seem like it would be a worthwhile listen. And that is probably why I haven't listened to this one in all these years that I have owned this disc. Avery tends to name drop, retell childhood zombie stories and just generally geek out through the course of the track and it is amazing. It's almost like having a deep conversation with someone about Zombies. It has been a long time since I have had a zombie conversation that wasn't about The Walking Dead. This was a rare treat with some insider Savini and Tarantino stories to boot.

My Thoughts: "I wish I could help kids like you but I'm just a pumpkin". Super corny, terrible animation and female characters voiced poorly my male 'actors'. Is this guy really reviewing a kids Halloween tape? I will say though that the songs were surprisingly well done, they didn't come off forced and had my daughter rocking back and forth to rhythm. It didn't work for me as an animated title but for it's target audience it does seem to hold appeal and it's not annoying enough for me not to throw it in once a year for my progeny.

My Thoughts: Wow, night and day watching this after Lumpkin. The color just drips off the screen in this one and the 3D is fantastic. The story revolves around a bet between ruler of the Land of the Remembered and the ruler of the Land of the Forgotten. The subject of said bet being 'who gets the girl'. There is plenty of laughs here for both kids and adults. One thing that does strike you when watching it though is that there are a lot of... white voices... playing hispanic parts. I am not an anti-white washing champion or anything but it just felt a bit off in context. But hey it was a Guillermo del Toro production. I liked the movie but man I am wondering about this new Pixar movie now. Coming out 3 years later and looking like the same idea, think Armageddon and Deep Impact but those came out in the same year. I would think a twin film that came out this much later but still so close would be deeply impacted by the first (I know, I had to do it). But their Land of the Remembered did seem to pop more in the previews I saw. Anyway this is not about Coco this is about The Book of Life and it's worth a watch.

My Thoughts: "I was condemn to make a giant cockroach movie so I set out to make the best giant cockroach movie ever made." This is the first del Toro commentary I have listened to and it will not be my last. I loved how honest he was with how much Dimensions tried to screw over his movie at every step of the process. And really all things considered it's surprising that it tuned out as good as it did. It was a little odd how much curses, not that I am offended or anything, just weird somehow for an English As A Second Language individual to use use curse words like an inner city teenager. "I thank you for watching these things if you don’t like it don’t know why the fuck you are listing to me." He likens the Mimic as the imperfect child, something he loves despite his flaws. and hey he recommends Mimic 3, guess I am going to have to watch the other two movies in this set.

My Thoughts: What the hell? This isn't VHS, this is youtuber shit! In a franchise killing move they decide that young kids just can't relate to VHS tapes so we gotta do this on cell phones and GoPros. Seriously.... So name recognition is the game here. No creepy VHS tapes and what we do get is a lame magician episode, skater kids that you really want to die and a parallel dimension husbands who's run in with their parallel wives does not go well. The latter of the bunch was actually decent, but man dropping the whole point of the movie and then severely dropping the percentage of passable sequences makes this a pass in a big way. I could have been ok with this anthology under a different title, not that it would have done any better than meh. But under this title I feel cheated.

My Thoughts: Weird Al opening song! I have gotten out of the habit of watching each episodes complementary episode of The Talking Dead. I hope when I eventually buy the complete series set they are included as a special feature. Something to watch with my daughter in the future as opposed to being that old guy talking about this show that used to exist. Things went way too well for the group in this episode, I fear they are just luring us into a false sense of security. Come on guys, I would watch an America rediscovery/recolonization zombie series. It doesn't all have to be about group struggles. It is nice to be back in the fold as it were, over these last 7 years these characters just feel like a part of my life now. Nothing too extraordinary happened this episode but it was a cathartic reunion.

(3.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: I had this odd thought while watching this one. There is going to be these movies that in the past almost no one would have seen but because they are "free" on Netflix everyone is going to know about. This was a meh movie that would have faded into obscurity, it's only real bit of intrigue being Jeffery Combs, but I know know tons of people that have actually sat down to watch Would You Rather? Now also there could have been some intrigue in the name for millennials.

My Thoughts: John and his friend David inject a drug that opens their eyes to the more Cronenbergian aspects of the world. It is frequently difficult to follow the narrative of this movie with the time displacements/phantoms/lies being told by the main character but I found this horror comedy irreverently charming. You can really feel Don Coscarelli's sci-fi influence throughout the movie, it almost felt British. Also it has made me decide that I need to give Bubba Ho Tip another try after not liking it 15 years ago. Debated a 3.5 or a 4 on this one but just for being so original it deserves the 4.

My Thoughts: I had been looking to revisit Timecrimes for awhile now and Hispanic Horror night seemed like the perfect opportunity. Timecrimes, one of the best time travel movies ever made, follows a man through the rabbit hole of time travel. There is really nothing else that I can say without giving away everything and this is a movie you should watch fresh. And subbed, turn off that terrible dubb immediately. I can't wait to show this to my daughter with zero introduction someday. I last watched this movie for the 2011 Sci-Fi Challenge and my brief review consisted of this: "One of the best time travel movies I have seen in awhile. Reminds me of Primer but with no annoying characters. So far this is my pick of the challenge, just a completely satisfying blind buy, something that seems to have gotten more illusive over the years." Run don't walk.

My Thoughts: I was stoked when I first picked up this title years ago, I had found Dracula 2000 quite enjoyable and it co-stared one of my childhood crushes, and frequently naked ex-playmate, Erika Eleniak. But unfortunately this was not a Jason X/Leprechaun 4 style sequel to Dracula 2000 and Erika Eleniak remained unabashedly clothed throughout. Those things not withstanding this still could have been a cool movie, salvaging an old abandoned space ship with unbeknownst evil on board. But this was bad, real bad. The acting is terrible, they have all of 3 sets that the characters seem to be going to over and over throughout the film, the CG feel like it was done on a home computer about a decade prior, Dracula's costume looks like something you would get for $30 during halloween but none of that is as bad as the script. The things these actors are forced to say is atrocious, it feels like kid wrote this movie, like legit this seems like the caliber of writing I was doing back in the 6th grade. I don't give out 1 out of 5's very often but this movie has earned it. It reminds me of Zombie Lake in that aspect, every few years I think to myself 'it can't be as bad as I remember it' and it always is.

(1 out of 5)
My Thoughts: I needed something for the Sci-Fi Channel anniversary check and perusing their list of original movies was making me sad. So, I thought I would give Helix a try as it has been on my tentative 'to watch' list for awhile now. So I was intrigued after the first 2 episodes, intrigued enough to watch 2 more. After episode 4 I am still kind of into it but it's no Lost. Strong start, some explosions, some monkey-sicles, a 28 Days later bend and SyFy trying to throw around the word frak after BSG. I could never watch this again and not be the worse for it. I think I will take the series back up after the challenge but overall I think it is going to end up being a background show.

My Thoughts: The third movie in Romero's modern zombie trilogy (or maybe duology depending on if you want to include Land) is no Day of The Dead. Lackluster effects, acting and plotting stymie this project throughout. As I watched I kept wondering, why does a comedy like Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse have better gore than a George Romero Zombie movie?!? I did like the connection to Diary Of the Dead and man this movie does make you appreciate that one more. And while the gore was not up to spec they did attempt to go all out. There were also a few interesting bits of interplay between the characters but more than not I just found the relationships between people annoying and wished I was watching almost any episode of TWD instead. It's a sad swan song for the director of the best zombie movies ever made and one I don't think I will be revisiting anytime soon. But despite me not liking this movie I still love George Romero, he created a genre that has been a source of joy in my life and a lot of other good horror as well, you will be missed.

My Thoughts: I bought this to watch with my daughter, never really intending to watch it during the OHMC but it had Jigsaw in it and I needed the checklist check. This zero mortality 'Are You Afraid Of The Dark?' style movie follows a gothy girl in a new high school fighting for the affections of a meathead boy. On Halloween a mysterious shop appears and sells her a book that must not be read aloud, she reads it aloud. It was overly simplistic and very PG but this movie did surprise me a few times as well with a Carrie homage and a not half bad monster in fact I am somewhat suspicious that I have seen that monster puppet before... It's a good starter horror movie for kids as it does hit the formula pretty well and it won't make parents want to extract their eyeballs with spoons, just don't expect anything scarier than a kids tv show.

My Thoughts: This was always that movie in the video store. I always looked at it's Lenticular cover but never rented it, man I should have ponied up and bought it with the slip. I am 2 for two at getting the boring version release of the exciting VHS boxes with this and my non-raised Dead Pit release. In this movie a group of friends, an oddly large group of friends, tag along with their buddy to his old deserted family farm to try and unravel the mysteries of his lineage, demon havoc ensues. I liked the demon makeup but it suffered from being way too well lit, even during night scenes you can see everything and while this doesn't seem like a detraction when you can see everything all the time and it is all good then none of it is amazing. Another thing is that the movie seemed to drag in the last two acts, we get demons, lots of them, over and over again almost to the point where you get bored of them. Looking at this whole thing objectively I must put forward that my viewing of this title may have been tainted by a technical glitch in the bluray. Throughout the duration of the movie there was this high pitch sound that played that drilled it's self into my brain causing me to have to take frequent brakes from watching this movie who's over the top-ness I might have otherwise enjoyed. So even though I am rating this as slightly below average know that that is with this conceit in mind and that otherwise a non-audio assault version might have hit much much differently.

(2.5 out of 5)
My Thoughts: Video store trash made by an adult industry veteran to cash in on the direct to video craze. This lurid movie vaguely follows a wheelchair bound man who has had enough and decided that it is time to kill. It's a mess of Video Violence style ultra low budget gore, long shots and shitty VHS effects. Notable and nearly giving this title another half star is Michelle Bauer who does some swimsuit aerobics and a rather tepid bath scene. The reason I am not bumping the score though is that the picture quality is so atrocious that the whole movie isn't really worth watching. It's like I am watching a video made to play on an iPod blown up to play in a theater. Worst of challenge title for me, had a hard time deciding between this and Dracula 3000 because this one does have nudity but at least I can see what is going on in Dracula 3000.

My Thoughts: You will notice that I have this viewing listed as DVD but have the blu-ray pictured. That is because this blu-ray was also having the same audio feedback issues that Demon Wind was, not quite as severe but still as dauntlessness piercing. So I am forced to watch Witchtrap on DVD like an animal. I have e-mailed Vinegar Syndrome about the issue and am waiting to hear back. The movie revolves around a team of paranormal investigators that are called to essentially exorcise a bed and breakfast. The set up and the acting are somewhat subpar here and the ADR is never in sync. I was about ready to call this one a lame duck until people started dying in extremely wtf ways. I won't spoil any of those deaths here but that is reason enough alone to watch this one. Add to that some Quigley nudity and decade of production being the 1980's and you have yourself a watchable movie. Just go in with low expectations. One thing that struck me here is that this might be the most like a real person I have ever seen Linnea Quigley act. Usually she is way more hyper realistic or sultry. But the redubbing of the movie could partially account for that too.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Thoughts: A hodgepodge cast and crew commentary with the director, producer, cinematographer and the actor that plays the slow groundskeeper? No Quigley? It's not like she doesn't make herself available for commentaries. This is a high spirited track monopolized mostly by the director. The same director as Witchboard, which is weird considering they had that big disclaimer on the box that this was not a sequel to Witchboard, you would have thought that was on there for legal reasons. They cover everything you would possibly be interested in the making of this property from stories about the first time sound girl who ruined all the on set recordings, having to linger on weird shots to hit 90 minutes for distribution, mpaa inequity and even the perkiness of Linnea Quigley's nipples. Not a bad track and in fact I think I had more fun listening to this commentary then I did watching the actual film. Oh, and the slow groundskeeper guy, he was the fat guy from Night of The Demons, I didn't recognize him at all, thats saying something about his performance too. One thing I really appreciated her was their willingness to laugh at the movie. Good track.

My Thoughts: A little background; this movie recently got me back into VHS collecting. I posted a link to watch this on youtube a challenge or two ago but never actually watched it myself. And then I started seeing people on eBay pay out the nose for this VHS and I just started to get fascinated with movies never released on optical. I have purchased a dozen VHS tapes this year because of Hack O' Lantern. Never actually Hack O' Lantern because there was no way I was going to pay that premium though. Then whilst looking for challenge titles on Amazon I found that there was this very recent Blu-Ray release of this title and I had to get it. The movie it's self is a somewhat non-remarkable low budget/poorly acted horror movie but there is some almost undefinable magic here. One thing that really stuck out at me was how well this was shot, it felt like a studio movie just with small town actors hamming it up. The plot revolves around this cult that has been grooming this boy to be some sort of lead evil when he gets older but unlike most movies in this one he is down for it, really down for. And I love how the adult actor they picked for this part looks like a crazy 80's villain. There is plenty of nudity, gore and some good old fashioned 80's who's the killer here as well for good measure. Looking back I can't really point out anything that was good about this movie but it was so so enjoyable. Great last day of the challenge title and really just Halloween movie in general.

My Thoughts: I watched it dubbed, like a charlatan. Just wanted to relax a bit more here with the last title of the challenge, also knocking off this Vampire 3-pack that has been hanging around in my 'to watch' pile since 2013. My daughter has been in and out during this challenge, often watching things she probably shouldn't but this is the first time she said a movie was scary. A Jean Rollin movie no less, it does say something about his style it does at very least have a certain gothic and unusual bent to it.

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

This will be my 12th consecutive year participating in the "October Horror Movie Challenge!" A dozen challenges - and still going strong!

2006 = 36 movies
2007 = 50 movies
2008 = 31 movies
2009 = 52 movies
2010 = 20 movies
2011 = 43 movies
2012 = 46 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.

October 21, 2017

22. The Car (1977) - A driver-less black car menaces a desert town in this entertaining '70s horror flick with some memorable stunt work.

October 22, 2017

23. Murder by Television (1935) - Bela Lugosi has a dual role in this murder mystery with an antiquated view of television during its infancy.

October 23, 2017

24. The Uninvited (1944) - Ghost movie with a strong reputation that I hadn't seen before. Atmospheric - and like a lot of good haunting films, this has a solid mystery as its base.

October 24, 2017

25. War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) - A fitting conclusion to the modern Caesar trilogy that "apes" Apocalypse Now quite a bit.

October 25, 2017

26. The Veil {4 Episodes}
"The Crystal Ball" (1958)
"The Doctors" (1958)
"Food on the Table" (1958)
"Summer Heat" (1958) - Four episodes of a quaint anthology series hosted by Boris Karloff that also sees him take on a role in each story. Sort of a precursor to The Twilight Zone. "Summer Heat" was my favorite of these four episodes.

October 26, 2017
27. The Veil {4 Episodes}
"Girl on the Road" (1958)
"The Return of Madame Vernoy" (1958)
"Vision of Crime" (1958)
"Whatever Happened to Peggy" (1958) - Another four episodes of this Boris Karloff series. "Vision of Crime" had some unexpeced humor in it; it was probably my favorite of this batch.

October 27, 2017
28. The Phantom of the Opera (1925) - My wife and I saw this tonight at the Bound Brook Performing Arts Center in NJ. It featured live organ accompaniment with Brett Miller. Last year, we saw him accompany Nosferatu at the same venue. Both performances were really cool experiences.

October 28, 2017
28.75 The Veil {3 Episodes}
"Destination Nightmare" (1958)
"Genesis" (1958)
"Jack the Ripper" (1958) - The remaining three of the eleven episodes of this short-lived Boris Karloff series. "Jack the Ripper" was perhaps my favorite of the trio.
29. Telephone Time "The Vestris" (1958) - Apparently, this was a pilot for The Veil. Boris Karloff appears in the story, but it's hosted by that goofy guy that did the intro in The Mole People.

October 29, 2017
30. Life Returns (1935) - Bad melodrama more than an outright horror film - This meandering movie has a doctor devote everything (to the detriment of his family) to the resuscitation of life. Valerie Hobson from The Bride of Frankenstein has a supporting role.
31. Invisible Ghost (1941) - Entertaining entry in Bela Lugosi's B-movie oeuvre. Maybe a bit too somber at times given the silly plot.

October 30, 2017
32. Island of Terror (1966) - Peter Cushing receives top billing but technically plays second fiddle in this fun "village under siege" sci-fi thriller directed by Terence Fisher.
33. They Came From Beyond Space (1967) - Jazz-infused and over-the-top British alien invasion flick from Amicus studio.

October 31, 2017
34. Annabelle: Creation (2017) - This prequel shows the origin of Annabelle. The isolated setting and Great Depression time period are effectively used to create a gothic atmosphere.

... and that'll bring 2017 to a close. 34 films bests 2008 and 2010, but it's a bit below my yearly average. 11 months until (hopefully) DVD Talk's 2018 October Horror Movie Challenge.

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

2017 Total = 34 movies
All-Time 12-Year Total = 473 movies

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

9/30/17

1) Cronos (1993) "How can somebody be deader than dead?" - Antiques dealer discovers an alchemist's golden clockwork beetle (which grants immortality) hidden inside a statue. Old rich guy sends Ron Perlman to take it from him.

10/1/17

2) KL Zombi (2013) [Netflix] "Untouch-cable!" - Malaysian zomcom about a group of young people fighting zombies in Kuala Lumpur. Not terrible.
3) The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) "It's the devil's playground." - Ex-cop (Dennis Hopper) who has spent the better part of two decades in pursuit of the cannibal family from the first movie finally closes in on them. The comedic turn in this one didn't bother me as much this time.

10/2/17

4) C.H.U.D. (1984) "Whataya, kiddin'? Your man has a camera, mine has a flamethrower." - After his wife disappears one night, a New York police captain becomes interested in investigating the disappearances which have plagued his neighborhood for weeks.
5) C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud (1989) "You know, if he were alive, he'd given us an 'A' for that." - Military division loses its C.H.U.D. research money and sends its last C.H.U.D. to a morgue where later that night, two high school losers coincidentally decide to steal a corpse, thus releasing the zombie-fied C.H.U.D. upon their smalltown on Halloween night. Lots of TV vets in this. Too bad the movie wasn't better.
6) Creatures from the Abyss (Plankton) (1994) [Shockwerks TV] "Die you motherfucking sons of bitches, die!" - Five young folks joyriding on a small rubber boat run out of gas and get caught in a storm. They happen upon an abandoned research vessel, go aboard and end up fighting mutant fish-things. Goofy as hell, with bad dubbing and worse special effects. This one actually is so bad it's good.

10/3/17

7) The Voices (2014) "I'm not sure it's a good idea to be talking to your cat anyway." - Guy talks to his pets (who talk back). Kills a few people. Since Ryan Reynolds was in it, I was expecting this one to be an over-the-top comedy, but was pleasantly surprised to see a pretty good thriller with some comedy elements.
8) Demonwarp (1988) [B-Movie TV] "And old Bill Crafton? He's buckin' for a butterfly net." - George Kennedy is spending time in a cabin in the woods. Bigfoot attcks. Some young people show up in the woods (including a frequently topless Michelle Bauer), and get attacked by Bigfoot. Soon, the survivors join up and they all go after Bigfoot, and run into zombies and aliens.
9) Amer (2009) "Attendez!" - Shows a woman at three different times in her life doing stuff, shot mostly in close-ups for whatever reason. Didn't care for this one at all.

10/4/17

10) Sleepstalker: The Sandman's Last Rites (1995) [Shockwerks TV] "Sweet dreams." - Serial killer put to death in electric chair comes back as a Spider-Man villain.
11) Mad Monster Party? (1967) "I've heard that one before." - Mad scientist, Boris Karloff, decides to retire and leave everything to his pharmacist nephew. Harvey Kurtzman's writing and Jack Davis' character designs make this a sort of animated Mad Magazine story.
12) The Edge of Hell (Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare) (1987) [Shockwerks TV] "Let's rock 'n' roll!" - Rock band goes to an old farmhouse to cut a record, run into monsters. Chock full of silly looking rubber monsters and mediocre '80s music. Surprised to see that I hadn't watched this during an earlier challenge.
13) The Devil's Rain (1975) [Shockwerks TV] "Corbis!" - William Shatner battles Ernest Borgnine, then Tom Skerritt shows up (along with Ida Lupino, Eddie Albert, and Keenan Wynn). It's really all just time-filler up until the ending (which is helpfully spoiled in the trailer and the title). How can you not enjoy a movie with that cast?
14) The Nail Gun Massacre (1985) "Well keep your feathers on so the bees don't sting." - Woman is raped at a construction site. Later, someone wearing a motorcycle helmet kills the rapists with a nail gun.

10/5/17

15) The Marsupials: The Howling III (Howling III: The Marsupials) (1987) "There's a pack of marsupial werewolves on the loose." - Guy investigating werewolves in Australia just happens to run into a few "marsupial werewolves." This one actually wasn't as bad as I remembered, but what the hell was with that ending?
16) Howling V: The Rebirth (1989) "It's not easy pretending to be stupid." - Group of seemingly unrelated people are invited to a castle, get killed off one by one. Kind of like The Beast Must Die (1974) without a silly gimmick to make it almost worth watching.
17) Vampire (1979) "He killed her, and mutilated her, and nothing is being done about it!" - Construction on a new church disturbs the latest resting place of vampire, Richard Lynch. E.G. Marshall and Father Karras become vampire hunters and track him down. A few moments seemed familiar, so I'm going to count this one as a rewatch.
18) Howling VI: The Freaks (1991) "Don't move, or I'll shoot your dick into the next county." - Drifter wanders into small town. Carnival soon shows up. People die. Not much to see here, other than Antonio Fargas playing a sideshow geek.

10/6/17

19) Candyman (1992) "Candyman ain't real?" - Two grad students studying Urban Legends stumble onto one that may just be true. I remember liking this one better when I'd seen it before.
20) Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh (1995) "There's no such thing as the Candyman." - Sequel with Candyman killing people in New Orleans. At least the scenery is interesting.

10/7/17

21) Candyman: Day of the Dead (1999) "The Candyman does not exist." - More Tony Todd. More bees.
22) The Lady and the Monster (1944) "It was that very night Patrick Cory received his first message from Donovan's brain." - First film adaptation of Donovan's Brain. Mad scientist keeps dead guy's brain alive. Brain gets stronger, and starts to control people.
23) Devil's Express (Gang Wars) (1976) "Like I said mister - you do it your legal, white way." - Bad Mother's crooked buddy steals an amulet while in Hong Kong, which releases a Chinese demon which eventual finds its way to NYC where it kills people in the subway. Blaxploitation-chopsocky-horror flick mashup, chock full of bad acting, bad kungfu, bad sound, PLUS Brother Theodore. What more could you want?
24) Night Hunter (1996) [B-Movie TV] "How could you expect to defeat me?" - Armed with a sawed-off double-barrel shotgun, two pistols, and his awesome kick boxing skills, vampire hunter Don 'The Dragon' Wilson tracks and kills vampires while evading the cops who want to arrest him for murder. Whose stupid idea was it to have the fight scenes get all shaky like the cameraman was having a seizure or something?
25) The Void (2016) "You know, statistically you're more likely to die in a hospital than anywhere else." - Small group of people are trapped in a nearly empty burned-out hospital by group of hooded figures.
26) The Lamp (The Outing) (1987) [Shockwerks TV] "Die motherfucker." - Killer genie kills teens staying overnight in museum. About what you'd expect from that descripion.

10/8/17

27) Death Row Diner (1988) [YouTube] "Here is the story of how one man gave back to Hollywood what it gave to him." - Another guy killed in an electric chair comes back from the dead. For some reason Michelle Bauer kept her shirt on in this one.
28) Seoulyeok (Seoul Station) (2016) Animated prequel to Train to Busan follows three characters through the start of the zombie apocalypse.

10/9/17

29) Raw (Grave) (2016) Vegetarian starts veterinarian school. Develops taste for meat. Rather predictable where it was going, but it was entertaining enough on its way there.
30) Warlock Moon (1973) "Our hero is no hero at all, but Dracula's nephew, out for a bite." - Guy from Hill Street Blues takes girl from Eight Is Enough to an old health spa. Eventually some people (who may or may not be ghosts) decide to eat her.
31) Warlock Moon (1973) w/commentary by Joe Bob Briggs "We're back at that damn dinner table again." - Funny and informative, as always.

10/10/17

32) Phantom of the Mall: Eric's Revenge (1989) [YouTube] "What if Eric didn't really die in that fire?" - Teen burned by arsonist moves into the mall built on the site of his old home. Kills people. Who knew you could buy a flamethrower at the mall? Ken Foree playing a mall cop is pretty good stunt casting. Not sure what it says about me that I recognized an uncredited Brinke Stevens seen only on a video screen for a few moments in the dressing room scene.
33) Yongary, Monster from the Deep (Taekoesu Yonggary) (1967) "Capsule! Capsule! Capsule!" - Giant lizard attacks Korea.
34) Army of Darkness (1992) "After that, I'm history." - Third Evil Dead movie finds Ash lost in time, battling evil.

10/11/17

35) Malatesta's Carnival of Blood (1973) "Beware of the mystery of the carnival." - Family joins carnival looking for their missing son. This one's a confusing mess, like the reels were out of order or something.

10/12/17

36) Slaughterhouse Rock (1988) "Let me tell you guys somethin' right now - his head starts spinnin' around, I'm outta here." - Guy has weird dreams. Eventually he and some friends go to Alcatraz to find the source of the dreams.
37) Horror High (1973) [B-Movie TV] "Vernon, are you alright?" - Jekyll and Hyde in high school. Nerdy science student creates a formula that turns him into a killer.
38) The Rage (2007) [B-Movie TV] "I am a fucking crazy bitch!" - Group of young people (including Erin Brown/Misty Mundae) end up in mad scientist's lab where he's injecting people with a "rage virus."
39) Bubba Ho-Tep (2002) "Never... but never fuck with the King." - Two old guys (who may, or may not be, famous) battle a soul sucking mummy. Been a long time since I watched this one. Still holds up.

10/13/17

40) The Bloody Video Horror That Made Me Puke on My Aunt Gertrude (1989) [Youtube] "Video stores are a dangerous business." - Shot-on-video crapfest about a video store clerk who ends up killing some people. I won't bother to try to describe how much this sucked other than to say that while there was some puking in the film, there was no Aunt Gertrude in the story at all.
41) Friday the 13th (1980) "Colombian gold, man. Grass. Hash. The weed. Dig it?" - Guy reopens old summer camp. People die.
42) Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981) "These kids smoke better dope than I do." - Five years after the first movie. Same lake. Different camp. More people die.
43) Bits & Pieces (1985) [B-Movie TV] "Die, you monster! Die!" - Guy with mother issues kills women, etc.

10/14/17

44) I vampiri (The Vampires, Lust of the Vampire) (1957) Mad scientist uses blood of young women to keep old broad young. I actually liked the remake (ripoff, whatever) The Wasp Woman better than this one.
45) Shreck (1990) [B-Movie TV] "Life, and death, are ironically ironic." - Shot-on-video dreck about three dorks bringing a dead nazi back to life.
46) The Crazies (1973) "Trixie wasn't developed as a vaccine. Trixie was developed as a bacteriological weapon." - Biological weapon turns people into rage zombies. A little too long.

10/15/17

47) Deadtime Stories: Volume 1 (2009) "Hello, I'm George Romero, I'm here to tell you a deadtime story." - Three so-so horror stories introduced by George Romero.
48) Deadtime Stories: Volume 2 (2011) "Hello, I'm George Romero, I'm here to tell you a deadtime story." - Three more so-so horror stories introduced by George Romero.

10/16/17

49) Martyrs (2008) "Elle a peur." - Girl escapes kidnappers. Years later, there's a home invasion. Then things get weirder.

10/17/17

50) Pin... (1988) "Let's talk to Pin." - Terry O'Quinn plays a slightly nutty doctor who has a full on nutty son. Soon enough people start dying.
51) Maggie (2015) "What's option three?" - Arnold Schwarzenegger tries to keep zombie-infected daughter, Abigail Breslin, around the farm as long as he can.
52) The Wind (1986) [Youtube] "You wanna play a game?" - Wings Hauser terrorizes Meg Foster during a wind storm. Steve Railsback popped up for a few minutes. Directed by the guy who directed Island of Death (1976), so I guess we should be glad he didn't have Wings Hauser raping any small farm animals in it.

10/18/17

53) Seeding of a Ghost (Zhong gui) (1983) Shaw Brothers horror flick about a taxi driver who enlists a sorceror to bring his wife back to life to get revenge on her killers.

10/19/17

54) Ravenous (1999) "Eat or die." - Soldiers battle cannibal.
55) Contamination .7 (The Crawlers, Creepers, Troll 3) (1993) "You look the same. You still got that tooth." - Radiation causes roots to kill people. Hilariously bad. Nobody in this movie can act. Costumes by Laura Gemser?
56) Troll (1986) "Honey... did you do a lot of drugs before we met?" - Harry Potter and his family move into a new apartment. Battle a troll. Great cast. Goofy fun.
57) Troll 2 (1990) "Are you still smoking dope?" - Two families exchange houses for a month. Goblins feed people green stuff to turn them into goblin food. Hilariously bad. Nobody in this movie can act. Costumes by Laura Gemser?
58) Shock 'Em Dead (1991) [B-Movie TV] "I want to be the greatest rock star in the world, and everything that comes with it." - Nerd gets a wish from a voodoo priestess. Becomes rock star, but has to eat pople to live.
59) The Brainsucker (1988) [Shockwerks TV] "My name is Mr. Suck." - Another shot-on-video shitfest. Mad scientist and hunchbacked assistant make creature which sucks brains. This was really bad.

10/20/17

60) Wheels of Terror (1990) [Shockwerks TV] "Stephanie!" - Schoolbus driver sees her daughter abducted by killer and chases him (in the schoolbus, with a couple kids still on it) for about half the flick. That probably sounds better than it was.
61) Scanner Cop II: Volkin's Revenge (1995) [B-Movie TV] "I'm gonna kill you! Kill you so bad!" - Scanner cop fights the guy from the previous flick, who now "feeds" on scanners. Just what you'd expect: Lots of strained looks and shaking, paid off with an exploding head.
62) Ganja & Hess (1973) "So we got three things goin': We got some grape jelly, some hominy grits, and an extension cord." - Vampire gets a girlfriend. I thought I'd seen this one before, but hadn't. Must've been on my to-watch list during an earlier challenge, and I didn't get to it.

10/21/17

63) River of Darkness (2011) [B-Movie TV] "Think fish have souls?" - Sheriff investigates deaths in small town which appear to be caused by ghosts of some guys who were lynched sometime in the past. I really hated this movie. It tried to have a twist at the end, which didn't work.
64) She Demons (1958) "This is island of evil." - People crash on an island during a hurricane. Find a tribe of dancing girls, and a nazi mad scientist.
65) The Horrible House on the Hill (Devil Times Five) (1974) "Harvey, I have a headache, a toothache, a backache, and I'm expecting the gout." - Group of kids escape from a mental asylum, terrorize some people on a ski trip.

10/22/17

66) The Man with Two Heads (1972) [Youtube] "I like to do things to people sexually." - Andy Milligan's Jekyll & Hyde.
67) Viy (1967) [Youtube] Student priest is recruited to pray over recently deceased witch's body.
68) Mirrors (2008) "What if the mirrors are reflecting something that's beyond our reality?" - Kiefer Sutherland plays an ex-cop working as a night watchman at a burned out department store who is haunted by something trapped in the mirrors in the store.
69) Dracula (1931) "The vampire is a pure myth, superstition." - Famous vampire goes to London in search of new victims.
70) Frankenstein (1931) "Here's a jolly good health to young Frankenstein." - Mad scientist stitches new body together from parts. Brings it to life.
71) Bride of Frankenstein (1935) "I've been cursed for delving into the mysteries of life." - Sequel finds creature wanting a mate.
72) The Wolf Man (1941) "Everyone knows about werewolves." - Guy bitten by werewolf becomes a werewolf.

10/24/17

73) The Mummy (1932) "Never saw a mummy like that." - Mummy disappears. Later looks for old girlfriend.
74) Son of Frankenstein (1939) "You forget! I have my hat on." - Mad scientist's son goes into the family business.
75) The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942) "We will go to Ludwig, the second son of Frankenstein." - Mad scientist's other son (who was never mentioned before) goes into the family business.
76) Esta Noite Encarnarei no Teu Cadáver (This Night I Will Possess Your Corpse) (1967) [Youtube] "Laura! Laura!" - More shenanigans from the unibrowed douchebag with the Fu Manchu fingernails. This time he's kidnapping and killing women while searching for a mate "worthy" to bear his child. I found this one better than the first. Could be because, as stupid as his motivation was in this one, he at least seemed to have some motivation, and wasn't just an asshole.

10/25/17

77) Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010) "Damn global warming!" - Starts with a nice, long Manos-style drive to nowhere, so you know you're in for... something. Birds attack people because of global warming. Sounds plausible. Bad acting + impossibly bad CGI = hilarious.
78) Birdemic 2: The Resurrection (2013) "I think global warming might have something to do with it." - More of the same. Red rain causes prehistoric birds to fly out of tar pits and attack people. Then there are zombies, because zombies. People ride for a while. Run into someone from first movie. Travel some more. Repeat. Nowhere near as funny as the first one.
79) Samson in the Wax Museum (Santo en el museo de cera) (1963) [B-Movie TV] "Santo! Santo! Santo!" - Masked wrestler (called "Samson" and "Santo" at different points in the dubbed copy) investigates mysterious happenings at wax museum.
80) The Mad Magician (1954) "They'll give me the same voltage for killing four as they would for killing three." - After his employer screws him over, Vincent Price gets revenge - in 3D! Twilight Time 3D Blu-ray looked great. Glad to be able to retire my old anaglyph copy. Never watched this back-to-back with House of Wax before, and it's surprising how much Columbia lifted from the earlier flick.

10/26/17

81) House of Wax (1953) "That whole place is a morgue." - Vincent Price plays a scuptor who, following a fire, decides to use real bodies in his wax museum - in 3D!
82) Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933) "I tell you, the whole place is a morgue. Do you hear? A morgue! A morgue!" - Lionel Atwill plays a scuptor who, following a fire, decides to use real bodies in his wax museum. Been a while since I last saw this one. I had forgotten how good it was, and how much of it was retained in the 1953 remake.
83) Night of the Living Dead (1968) "This is no Sunday school picnic!" - Group of survivors battle zombies, and each other, in a boarded-up farmhouse.
84) Dawn of the Dead (1978) "Looks like a shopping center. One of those big indoor malls." - Small group fleeing zombie apocalypse finds respite in shopping mall.

10/27/17

85) I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016) [Netflix] "Death stalks America's heartland." - Teen with psychological problems discovers his neighbor is a killer.

10/28/17

86) Witchstalker (2014) [B-Movie TV] "Do you know anyone else who dresses like Dr. Who 24/7?" - Crap about a teenage girl who is destined to be a witch killer. Steal a little from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Throw in a bunch of pop culture references. Mix.
87) Hunting Season (2000) [B-Movie TV] "Be careful, we're camping here!" - Another shot-on-video turd (this one was originally in 3D video). Woman is raped on camping trip. Later goes back to forest, armed with a crossbow, and kills guys.
88) The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) "Come on Franklin, it's gonna be a fun trip!" - Group of friends driving through Texas end up on menu.
89) Welcome to Spring Break (Nightmare Beach) (1989) [B-Movie TV] "I'll come back to get even!" - Yet another guy dies in electric chair vowing to return. Soon after, someone starts electrocuting people at Spring Break. I would've skipped this one since I'd seen it before not too long ago, but I saw I could get a check with Michael Parks.
90) The Neon Demon (2016) "Beauty isn't everything, it's the only thing." - Young girl becomes sought after as a model. Pisses off other models. This one looked better than it was. Reminded me a bit of similarly themed Starry Eyes (2014) I watched a couple years back.

10/29/17

91) Blood Orgy of the She-Devils (1973) "I understand that you possess many occult powers." - Ted V. Mikels flick about a witch who shows people their past lives.
92) Cherry Falls (2000) "Does it ever bother you that you could die a virgin?" - Someone is killing virgins at local high school, which causes the local high schoolers to hold a PG rated orgy. Is it just me, or was part of the killer's backstory taken from Zombie Nightmare?
93) Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) "Demon eh? Well, that's no more far-fetched than your gill man." - Scientists go searching for fossils. Run into missing link - in 3D!
94) Revenge of the Creature (1955) "Once you've seen the Gill Man, please move on, give the other folks a chance." - Scientists go back to lagoon. Capture creature and take him to aquarium where he's put on exhibit - in 3D! Man, I wish Universal would hurry up and release this on 3D Blu-ray. I watched a crappy side-by-side copy, but the underwater stuff still looked really good, and you can tell the whole thing'll look great if done right.

10/30/17

95) Lifeforce (1985) "Assume we know nothing, which is understating the matter." - Alien vampires attack London.
96) XX (2017) "What's in the box?" - Four short films directed by women.
97) Ticks (1993) "I'm infested!" - Group on nature outing is attacked by mutant ticks. Lots of TV vets in the cast. Turns out I had seen it before, though I have no idea when. It was all familiar enough that I think it was probably within the last ten years or so.
98) Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) "We can actually do what we've been pretending to do." - Fortuneteller who runs seances buys a Ouija Board. Stuff happens.

10/31/17

99) Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) "No Mr. Lincoln, vampires are real. They exist in every city, every state in the Union." - Abe Lincoln fights vampires - in 3D! First time watching it in 3D.
100) Friday the 13th Part III (1982) "Where's that coming from?" - Jason kills people - in 3D! Another rough side-by-side copy (c'mon Paramount - release the damned thing in real 3D already!), but it's miles ahead of the anaglyph version. Where maybe a third of the 3D effects worked on the anaglyph version, most of it worked on this one. It was like seeing the movie for the first time.
101) Castle Freak (1995) "Stop it! You're acting like a child!" - Family moves to old castle. They soon find out that something else lives there too.
102) Decoys (2004) "I'm a marshmallow! I am a marshmallow! I'm a cookie!" - Alien women lay eggs in men. In case you're looking for Holiday-themed movies, this one starts on Halloween, with kids trick or treating, and ends around Christmas.
103) Decoys 2: Alien Seduction (2007) "You know, if women are aliens, that would explain a lot of things." - Sequel about alien women who lay eggs in men. Two characters who apparently died in the first flick are back in this one, and they explained how it happened rather than just skip over it, so give them points for that.
104) WNUF Halloween Special (2013) "With prices so low, you'll think we're out of our gourds." - This plays out like an old videotaped recording from a local station (complete with commercials) of a Halloween special with a reporter going into an old, supposedly haunted house. Funny with a decidedly nasty turn at the end.
105) The Conjuring (2013) "There was someone else in here!" - Family moves into old haunted farmhouse. They recruit psychic investigators who fight the entities in the house. Felt a lot like Poltergeist (1982) to me.

11/1/17

106) Dracula (Horror of Dracula) (1958) "I'm Dracula, and I welcome you to my house." - Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in Hammer's version of the classic story. I'm easily entertained, but I have to say I enjoyed seeing the original title on screen this time instead of the American version.
107) Child's Play (1988) "Chucky's alive. Really, he is." - Dying killer, Brad Dourif, transfers his body into a doll. Doll kills people.
108) The Manster (1959) "Well now I've seen everything, or I'm about to." - Mad scientist does secret experiment on reporter, turning him into a monster. This movie stinks, but it's a nostalgic stinker. I swear there was a time when Dr. Madblood showed this thing at least once a month, and, as I mentioned elsewhere, this was the first film I watched for the first OHMC.

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

***List is Complete***

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

This is my 2nd Challenge

First-Time Viewing: 62| Blu-Ray: 72 | DVD:26 | TV: 2 | Streaming: 13 |

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.

Oct 12th

No viewings

Oct 13th

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.

Oct 22nd

78. Blackenstein (1973) 5/10. Blu Ray. An interesting Blaxploitation film with an even more interesting production history. The film is inept and pretty dull.

79. The Undying Monster (1942) 5/10. Blu Ray An eerie 1940s film in the style of Edgar Wallace about a werewolf haunting a family.

80. +1 (2013) 6/10. Streaming. An interesting take on dopplegangers with a downbeat ending. Enjoyable one time watch.

Oct 23rd

81. Demon Seed (1977) 5/10 Blu Ray. Silly farce about a computer that implants its offspring into Julie Christie. Paycheck movie?

82. Amsterdamned (1988) 8/10. Blu Ray. A solid, hidden slasher gem. Highly recommended.

83. Dolls (1987) 6/10 Blu Ray. I am not much of a fan of Full Moon and the Puppetmaster films, but I thought Dolls was marginally better.

Oct 24th

84. Obsessions (1969) 8/10. Blu Ray. Dutch film about Voyeurism and murder. Excellent in the style of Hitchcock. Highly recommended.

85. Alucarda (1975). 7/10. Dvd. Fascinating Mexican production about satanic possession in a girls convent.

86. Vengeance of the Zombies (1973) 6/10. Blu Ray. Paul Naschy, Hindu Priests, Zombies and crazy jazz music. Nuff Said.

87. The Blue Eyes of the Broken Doll (1974) 7/10 Blu Ray. A very good Gialli film by Paul Naschy. Great twist ending.

Oct 25th

88. Human Beasts (1980) 7/10. Blu Ray. Paul Naschy is a gangster on the run. He ends up at a house with two crazy sisters. The ending is shocking and surprising. Recommended.

89. Antropophagus (1980) 6/10. Blu Ray. Joe D'Amato video nasty that is actually pretty slow moving. There are a couple of fairly shocking scenes at the end that clearly got it on the British Video Nasty List.

90. Astro Zombies (1968) 6/10. Blu Ray. Ted V Mikels "no budget' monster movie. The monsters are guys with masks that look like they were purchased at Walmart.

91. Hobgoblins (1988) 2/10. streaming. The highlight of this turkey was the extended yard tool MMA fight.

Oct 26th

92. Night of the Werewolf (1981) 7/10. Blu Ray. Paul Naschy reboot of his Werewolf vs the Vampire Woman. Recommended. Lots of fun.

93. The Crazies (1973) 8/10. Blu Ray. I really like the Crazies. The movie holds up to repeat viewings.

94. The Bride From Hell (1972) 6/10. Blu Ray. An interesting Shaw Bros chinese ghost story. 88 films blu ray

95. She Killed in Ecstasy (1971) 8/10 Blu Ray. Excellent Franco revenge film. Solidad Miranda is gorgeous.

Oct 27th

96. The Killing of America (1981) 8/10 Blu Ray. A fascinating, but brutal documentary about America's penchant for violence.

97. The Intruder (1975) 6/10. Blu Ray. a newly discovered proto-slasher film. Fairly tame and a bit slow.\

98. Ouija Origin of Evil (2016) 5/10. Showtime. Marginally better follow-up to the first film.

Oct 28th

99. All Cheerleaders Die (2013) 4/10. Dvd. Silly supernatural horror/comedy. I didn't see much humor in it.

Oct 29th

100. The Fog (1980) 8/10. Blu Ray. John Carpenter's classic. I listened to the commentary with Carpenter and Hill.

101. The Initiation (1984) 7/10. Blu Ray. The new Arrow blu ray is excellent for the 1980's slasher gem.

Oct 30th

102. Witchtrap (1989) 6/10. Blu Ray. Another Kevin Tenney witchcraft/possession film similar to Witchboard. Mildly entertaining.

103. Inquisition (1978) 8/10. Blu Ray. Paul Naschy directed this "Witchfinder General" genre film. Well done.

104. Night of the Strangler (1972) 7/10. Dvd. The Monkees front man Mickie Dolenz stars in this politically incorrect proto slasher.

105. Ghostwatch (1992) 5/10. Streaming A british documentary style shot on video paranormal activity film that plays like "war of the worlds". mediocre.

Oct 31st

106. The Body Snatcher (1945) 9/10. Dvd. The Val Lewton classic and my favorite Boris Karloff portrayal.

107. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) 8/10. Blu Ray The Wes Craven original is a classic and still holds up. Heather Langenkamp is the glue that holds this one together.

108. A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddies Revenge (1985) 7/10. Blu Ray. This film gets alot of hate, but i think its very entertaining.

109. A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. (1987) 8/10. Blu ray. An exciting follow up to part 2. Maybe the best of the series.

110. Halloween (1978) 10/10 Blu Ray. A classic slasher that never gets old.

111. Prison (1987) 7/10. Blu Ray. Finally a Charles Band film I like!

112. Frankenstein meets the Wolfman (1943) 7/10 Dvd. One of my favorites. I couldn't finish the challenge without at least one universal horror film.

Nov 1st

113. Arachnaphobia (1990). 7/10 Blu Ray. A really good way to finish the challenge. I enjoyed this light hearted spider movie.

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.
October 8:
10. Saturday the 14th
11. The Willies
October 9:
Nothing
