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

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

- Complete -


The 10th Anniversary

Goal: 100
TOTAL: 12
FIRST TIME VIEWS: 7
☼ indicates first time viewing
Ratings:
★★★★★
★★★★
★★★
★★


Week 1


- September 30 -

1. Ghostbusters (1984) ★★★★★
One of the most-fun movies! Everyone is at the top of their game, and there is a reason this is such a classic.


- October 1 -

2. Hocus Pocus (1993) ★★★★
This movie has really grown on me, and has become one of my Halloween staples! It captures the spirit of the season so well, and the story is incredibly fun and engaging - not to mention the great performances by Middler, Parker and Najimy as the Sanderson Sisters!


- October 2 -

3. Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995) ★★½
I opted to watch the infamous Producer's Cut this time around, and after all of the hype wound up feeling pretty disappointed. While still a fun movie, I feel the witchcraft angle takes away some of the boogeyman-effect Michael has. I'd say the theatrical cut is better.


- October 3 -

- October 5 -

- October 6 -

None


- October 7 -

4. Gerald's Game (2017) ★★★½ ☼
This was a really smart take on Stephen King's "unfilmable" story. Carla Guigino was amazing, and Mike Flanagan continues to be one of the most interesting working directors.


Week 2


- October 8 -
5. Blacula (1972) ★★★½ ☼
I thought this was a really interesting take on the Dracula mythos. The ending of this movie was completely bonkers!


- October 9 -

- October 13 -

6. Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter ★★★½ ☼
It was really strange to see Crispin Glover in this - and man that guy has some killer dance moves! Overall, this movie didn't make much sense, but that's not why I watch them! Still a very entertaining film!


- October 14 -

None


Week 3


- October 15 -

7. Brides of Dracula (1960) ★★★★ ☼
This was probably my favorite first time viewing of the challenge. Peter Cushing was incredible, and I found the film to be totally engaging and gorgeous. However, I was surprised that, despite the title, Dracula was nowhere to be seen!


- October 16 -

None


- October 17 -

None


- October 18 -

8. X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes (1963) ★★★★ ☼
This was a really clever take on a sort of 50's sci-fi idea. It goes into directions I didn't expect, and had some creepy, if cheesy, moments.


- October 19 -

None


- October 20 -

None


- October 21 -

9. The Babysitter (2017) ★★★ ☼
This was a fun movie, but I felt it wasn't very inventive. The idea had the room for much much more, but instead, it felt like a more horror-versioned riff of Home Alone. Even still, can't say I was bored!

10. The Devil's Candy (2015) ★★★½ ☼
This started incredibly strong, but had an incredibly weak third act. It also didn't help that the special effects in the third act looks really poor, and were distracting. That being said, the performances were all great, and I loved the way the family's relationship was portrayed.


Week 4

- October 27 -

11. Dracula (1931) ★★★★★
This is easily my favorite Universal Monster movie. I know that some people feel it's too wooden, but I believe that adds to the charm. Add in the incredible performance by Lugosi, and the haunting camerawork, and I'd say the film is quintessential of the horror for its time. This one doesn't get old for me!


- October 28 -

12. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) ★★★★★
This is perfect Halloween viewing, and is even more appropriate toward the end of the month - a great segue to the holiday season. Everything about this movie is great, from the amazing visuals, to the incredible music.

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


Goal: 50

Blue = Repeated viewing
Green = 1st time viewing
Red = Vinyl Soundtrack

Sept 30th
1)Eraserhead - (BLU RAY) I learned that Admiral Ackbar sure was a fussy eater as an infant. Have no idea what I watched, but certainly an achievement for filmmaking and a film I can't wait to read more about and watch more of. The lighting alone is fantastic! 7/10
a)Black Christmas (1974) Soundtrack - Good blend of angelic christmas songs with nightmarish sounds. Not a vinyl I'll be spinning repeatedly as the Billy noises do become unnerving after a while.
2)Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) - (BLU RAY) I learned that if pills and coffee aren't enough to keep you up, try injecting epinephine or burning yourself! The teen killed in the diner at the beginning sure had amazing hair for someone who has been up for 3 days. Like the idea of micronaps introduced, but nothing else noteworthy in this remake. 3/10
3)Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll - (BLU RAY) I learned that being suave and indulging your every pleasure without any regard to morals is more damaging than opium addiction. Features a delightful opening credit score and great performance out of the lead. 8/10

Oct 1st
4)The Gorgon - (BLU RAY) I learned amnesiacs make effective murderers. Good Hammer affair, unfortunate Christopher Lee came into the film so late though. 6/10
5)Resident Evil - (BLU RAY) I learned automated lights are DEFINITELY something to worry about. The licker CGI does not hold up, and a multi-billion dollar company can't use more than a paper towel as a gown on test subjects? A surprising departure from the source material, but worth a watch. 5/10

Oct 2nd
6)The Lorely's Grasp - (BLU RAY) I learned that doing nothing is a completely ineffective survival skill when being mauled by a monster. Seriously, the Lorely attacks 6-7 people in the film, and NOT ONE even attempts to defend themselves or run. Not sure which school these girls attend, but my gosh, do I want to submit an application. All they do is swim in a pool all day and giggle. 4/10
7)The Mad Magician - (3D BLU RAY) I learned to ensure none of your acquaintances are dating a detective if you are going to murder someone. The story was not what I was anticipating, but it has a quick pace and the immortal Vincent Price. 6/10

Oct 3rd
8)Dr. Giggles - I learned that doctors have a very forceful golf swing. This movie is fucked up, not in a gory, mess with your head, give you nightmares type of way, but rather a 'what teenager steals his mother's lingerie and asks his girlfriend to wear it' type of way. I laughed seeing an actor named Doug E. Doug in the credits. An essential 90's slasher only because there aren't a ton of them, enjoyable if only for cheesy one-liners. 6/10
9)Popcorn - (BLU RAY) I learned that revenge is much like directing - it requires vision, craft and must be perfect. The villain is memorable and gives a Jim Carrey like performance. 7/10

Oct 4th
10)Nightmare Sisters - (BLU RAY) I learned that next time I'm at a rummage sale, I'll be sure to pick up that old fortune teller crystal ball to turn my dull love life upside down should it be needed. 4/10
11)Black Candles - (BLU RAY) I learned that the penalty for warning outsiders about your secret, Satanic cult is a sword in the ass. This is seriously nothing more than a porno, there is sex literally almost every five minutes, so much so that I said to myself out loud "I can't believe I'm saying this, but this movie has too much sex". 2/10

Oct 5th
12)Society - (BLU RAY) I learned that as sexy as it sounds, be sure to turn down any girl's offer to shunt you. Good paranoia throughout that keeps a viewer interested as it teases things to come, and boy, what a payoff at the end. 6/10
b)Evil Dead 2 Soundtrack - Loved the creepy 'Rock a bye baby' song.

Oct 6th
13)Get Out - (BLU RAY) I learned you should never trust your girlfriend with your car keys. Everyone should try to go in without having the movie spoiled. I knew it involved race in some capacity, but holy shit, there is just enough tension to keep every horror fan wanting more. 8/10
14)Coraline - (3D BLU RAY) I learned that when nothing else is around, throwing a cat is perfectly acceptable. I award this film as having the best 3D effects. Great story and award winning animation. 9/10

Oct 7th
15)The Janitor -I learned that apparently there is a janitorial code not to rat out your fellow custodial staff should you find out they are completely psychotic and on a murder spree. Cheap effects, hated the main actor's "batman voice" and too childish of humor for my liking. 3/10
16)Evils of the Night - (BLU RAY) I learned that escape from abductors is much more effective working together. All of the victims are completley cringe worthy in their stupidity which is simply impossible to overlook. The cover art on the blu ray is more enjoyable than anything in this film. 2/10
17)Phantom of the Paradise - (BLU RAY) I learned that only one person makes you sign a contract in blood - the Devil. Also, don't piss off any music executives. I'm already awarding this my favorite new view of the year, it' that good! A parody on the music industry blended with a classic opera story and rock music. 9/10

Oct 8th
18)Curse of Frankenstein - I learned to never keep your corpse unattended in your laboratory during a thunder storm. The one that started it all and such a great update of a classic horror character. Forgot how dark this movie is for the time - the monster is shot in the head causing blood to splatter from it's eye, Victor kills his maid by locking her in his lab after she confesses she is pregnant with his child and threatens to go to the police with his experiments. Hammer horror at it's finest. 9/10

Oct 9th
19)Horror of Dracula - (BLU RAY) I learned that Dracula gets pissed when he doesn't get first dibs on victims. A horror essential, great update on the classic monster. 9/10

Oct 10th
20)Brides of Dracula - (BLU RAY) I learned that a quick cauterization and a dab of holy water is an instant cure for a vampire bite. Hammer went in another direction here, in place of an imposing, silent Dracula, they went for a handsome and charming younger character which was refreshing. Still, no comparison between Lee's portrayal, but worth a watch and great effort. 7/10

Oct 11th
21)Knock, Knock - (BLU RAY) I learned that hot chicks can get away with, well, murder! Worth a watch, but any amount of sympathy Keanu goes away with his 'free pizza' speech. However, when those hot bitches were breaking apart his record collection, I about lost my shit as a fellow vinyl enthusiast. 3/10

Oct 12th
22)Split - (BLU RAY) I learned that despite physician warnings, cutting and other self mutilating behaviors can save your life. The acting was phenomenal, but I felt the movie felt fading once it got to the 'beast' persona, and the tie in to Unbreakable felt a bit forced. 6/10

Oct 13th
23)Friday the 13th (1980) - (BLU RAY) I learned the essentials! Don't have sex, don't do drugs, etc. My girlfriend jumped 10 feet at the ending so that was fun. 8/10
24)Friday the 13th Part II - (BLU RAY) I learned the essentials continued: Don't split up, make sure the killer is dead, etc. 7/10

Oct 14th
25)Butcher Baker, Nightmare Maker - (BLU RAY) I learned how important it is to draft a will, otherwise you risk your infant being in the custody of your crazy sister. 6/10
26)American Psycho - (BLU RAY) - I learned to just back out of any room you walk into that has newspaper on the floor but the owners don't have a pet. Infinitely quotable, my favorite Bale performance, and love the did he/didn't he take on the film. 10/10
27)Orphan - (BLU RAY) - I learned taking a black light to your child's paintings is a good way to determine if they may be homicidal. Nice twist and a decent twist in a "that's fucked up" kind of way. 5/10

Oct 15th
28)Resident Evil 2: Apocalypse - (BLU RAY) I learned that even zombie boobs can be a distraction to a man while driving. A decent follow up that brings some nice action and highlights the spread of the infection, and what a dream it was to see the Nemesis brought to screen. 6/10
29)Dracula: Prince of Darkness - (BLU RAY) I learned that Dracula's hold on his servants has no expiration date. Features the second most badass priest ever on screen next to the one in Dead Alive, and certainly enjoyed the film's conclusion in finding another way to end Dracula's reign of terror by him falling in ice, which is refreshing when compared to the infinite crucifix, stake, sunlight etc kills.

Oct 16th
30)Dracula Has Risen From the Grave (BLU RAY) - I learned that even priests are susceptible to a vampire's lure. Had some realistic gore effects when Dracula is staked through the heart which was a nice contrast to that bright blood used in earlier films. Great opening too in which an alter boy finds a woman's corpse hanging upside down from a church bell. 7/10

Oct 17th
31)Parents - (BLU RAY) I learned if you take a black cat and a broil it in the oven and you peel the skin of the bones and take it off and you chew on the bone, you'll be invisible. 4/10

Oct 18th
32)Taste the Blood of Dracula - (BLU RAY) I learned to keep my pleasures to brothels rather than seeking out extra thrills, such as drinking blood. 7/10

Oct 19th
33)Scars of Dracula - I learned that servants of Dracula will eventually put ho's before bro's after serving their master long enough. 5/10

Oct 20th
34)The Raven (2012) - (BLU RAY) I learned that if you know your work is going to inspire someone, be sure to write more erotica. This is a title that sat on my shelf for years and was glad to finally give it a watch as it serves many appetites - gore, mystery, Poe fans, etc. 7/10

Oct 21st
35)Dracula AD 1972 - I learned not to be friends with anyone who indulges in the black arts, even if as a joke. A worthy update for the series and overall enjoyable. 6/10
36)An American Werewolf in London - (BLU RAY) I learned to stay on the moors and always listen to the locals. In my top 5 horror films, nuff said. The UK truly has the best healthcare in the world as a hot nurse will take you home and your MD wil investigate your friend's murder which the police were so quick to forget. 10/10

Oct 22nd
37)Creep - I learned to not mistake sadness for psychosis and be wary of ALL Craigslist ads. The trailer gave me the impression it was the one guy recording the other guy for the entirety of film, so was surprised and enjoyed the second half in which the one being recorded turns the tables and stalks the guy he hired. 7/10
38)Resident Evil: Extinction - (BLU RAY) I learned that in the event of an apocalypse, calls for help via radio are not to be trusted. I liked the start contrast in setting from the city environment in the predecessor. The Event Horizon-like imagery in the finale is probably the closest thing this series gets to being classified as horror as you see bodies suspended in air impaled by poles and blood all over the walls while the lights flicker. The tyrant also made me geek out. Is it just me or did Mila have WAY too much photoshop done on her face throughout the film. 5/10

Oct 23rd
39)Revenge of Frankenstein - (BLU RAY) I learned that if you want to rid yourself of your tarnished reputation and start a new life, it may be worthwhile to think of a better last name than simply dropping the first two syllables of your existing name. 7/10
40)Resident Evil: Afterlife - (3D BLU RAY) I learned to save your quarters for the apocalypse not just for any vending machines you may come across, but also for shot gun ammunition. Completely worthless sequel that adds nothing more to the lore, but the 3D effects were well done. As if the zombie canines weren't scary enough, it's as if the writers though "hey, what if they split open their faces and had fanged tendrils?". 4/10
41)Curse of Chucky - (BLU RAY) I learned that eyeballs are REALLY bouncy. A nice departure from the POS Seed of Chucky. Creepy house? Check! Creepy doll? Check! 6/10

Oct 24th
42)Cult of Chucky - (BLU RAY)
43)Evil of Frankenstein - (BLU RAY)
44)Resident Evil: Retribution - (3D BLU RAY)

Oct 25th
45)Annabelle: Creation - (BLU RAY)

46)Frankenstein Created Woman - (BLU RAY)

Indy's 2016 Halloween/Horror Challenge
Indy's 2015 Halloween/Horror Challenge
Indy's 2014 Halloween/Horror Challenge
Indy's 2013 Halloween/Horror Challenge
Indy's 2012 Halloween/Horror Challenge
Indy's 2011 Halloween/Horror Challenge
Indy's 2010 Halloween/Horror Challenge
Indy's 2009 Halloween/Horror Challenge

Goal= 25 (Ended with 81)
* indicates first time viewing (Ended with 35)
List finalized

September 30
1. Spooky Woods 2017 Live Event- First time going, but hands down best haunted attraction I've been to in my short life.
2. Children of the Corn (1984)- Is it racist if I say the vanilla characters were so bland I rooted for the ginger?

October 1
3. Gerald's Game* (2017)- Took an unfilmable novel and made it interesting and captivating.
4. Devil's Candy* (2015)- The hardest part was taking Nick Papagiorgio from Yuma serious as a tortured artist.
5. Paranormal Activity 5 (2015)- They upped the CGI, but lowered the old school suspense. Also, where was Katie Featherston, she's the straw that stirs the PA drink.

October 2
6. Wolfen* (1981)- What was going on in 1981 that gave us three good werewolf movies?
7. Phantasm (1979)- This is the classic that taught us if you have a cool villain with metal balls, you don't need to make sense.
8. Phantasm II (1988)- The new Mike perfectly parallels when Sarah Chalke substituted for Becky Connor in the middle of Rosanne.
9. Clown* (2014)- Well that was interesting, but it felt like they weren't sure whether to truly commit to the idea or not.
10. The Orphanage (2007)- Old school, gothic style tale, but its hard to get scared when you have to read.

October 3
11. The Cult of Chucky* (2017)- For the 7th chapter in the Chucky saga, not too bad. But it does feel more of an appetizer for a main course.

October 4
12. The Boy* (2016)- Okay, that was much better than it had any right to be. I think every house in Great Britian must either be haunted or infested with weirdos.

October 5
13. Child's Play (1988)- Not the first killer toy movie, but the first one that said, "look, boys should not play with dolls, okay."
14. The Houses October Built (2014)- Fairly believable until the end. It's like when you have a really good idea, but you just don't know how to execute it.

October 6
15. The Gate* (1987)- I grew up in the 80's, so I can appreciate this movie. I know it's faint praise, but that's all I got.

October 7
16. Phantasm III (1994)- Now that the bands is back together, the fun really shows.
17. Phantasm IV* (1998)- Come on, the Tall Man is the most interesting character, so it's about time they gave him more than just "BOOOYYY"
18. Casper (1995)- I'm just gonna say it, pretty edgy for a 90's family movie, and that's why it's good.
19. White Noise (2005)- This movie has an interesting idea and Michael Keaton... and that's pretty much it.
20. Blackcoat's Daughter* (2016)- This is a horror movie in the style of Mad Men.
21. Lights Out (2015)- I know everyone thinks the only great horror movies came from the 70's and 80's, but I am loving the current wave of scary flicks. And this one is great. Rebecca deserves so much better than her kwazy cupcakes mom and super awkward beardo bf.

October 8
22. Slumber Party Massacre II* (1987)- You know, I wish they had the guts to go full on musical horror movie. That would have been something different.
23. Slumber Party Massacre III* (1990)- I don't remember much about this movie so that pretty much says it all.
24. The Void* (2016)- Not bad, not bad. Starts out pretty mysterious, but then turns into a standard Lovecraft rip... homage.
25. Interview with the Vampire (1994)- Good stuff, but ironically, Brad Pitt was miscast, not Tom Cruise. Wish this got a proper sequel.

October 9
26. One Dark Night* (1982)- If had been a made for TV movie, it would have been pretty good for the early 80's.
27. The Blackwell Ghost* (2017)- This is an interesting mocumentary, proves that simple, practical effects can be very effective.
28. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)- This feels like a found-footage movie, just without all the jerky, nauseating camera motion. This last 30 pages of the script must said, Sally- SCREAMS.
29. House on Haunted Hill* (1959)- If they would have keep using that blind old lady on roller-skates more, this might have been the scariest movie ever.
30. The Innkeepers (2011)- Did they use CGI to age Kelly McGillis? Claire is probably the cutest boy that I have ever seen.

October 10
31. Tales from the Crypt S7- Ep 7: The Kidnapper, Ep 8: Report from the Grave, Ep 9: Smoke Wrings, Ep 10: About Face

October 11
32. Cat's Eye* (1985)- This is a fun, family friendly horror anthology for cat lovers everywhere.

October 12
33. Curse of Chucky (2013)- Chucky returns to straight (to video) up horror. Was surprised to enjoy this as much as I did.
34. 976-EVIL 2* (1991)- About as much fun as a fidget spinner covered in glue and human feces.

October 13
35. Friday the 13th (1980)- This is a quasi-classic with a cool surprise ending, but said ending was stretched out way too long, with some ridiculous moments that killed the vibe.
36. Amityville: The Awakening* (2017)- Not bad, but like almost ever horror film, falls into old cliches and trite mechanics.

October 14
37. The Mummy's Hand* (1940)- Progenitor of the slow moving menace, guess running from a threat didn't come into fashion until the 70's.
38. The Dark Half (1993)- A lot better than I remembered, but I was more scared of Michael Rooker than Timothy Hutton's Elvis impersonator.
39. The Craft (1996)- I might be wrong, but I don't believe Fairuza Balk was acting.
40. Otis* (2008) Hey, they really tried, so let's give them that.

October 15
41. Return of the Living Dead 3 (1993)- I remember liking this back in the day and secretly wishing Melinda Clarke was my gf. Somethings never change.
42. The Mummy's Tomb* (1942)- How, even in the 30s and 40s, was anyone scared of a Mummy? Even a parkour one?
43. Candyman (1992)- There's a lot more going on here than just a scary hook-handed apparition.

October 16
44. Phantasm: Ravager* (2016)- Adds a lot more sci-fi, but I think it's a worthy ending to the franchise.
45. The Babysitter* (2017)- This one hinges on acting and humor and both work nicely.
46. Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh (1995)- There's not a lot more going on here than just a scary hook-handed apparition.
47. Incarnate* (2016)- Falls squarely into the 'not bad' category of horror, kinda like eating at Applebees.
48. Poltergeist (1982)- So good it makes you wish Steven Spielberg directed more horror movies. Yeah, I went there.

October 17
49. 30 Days of Night (2007)- Starts with some clunky dialogue and awkward character introductions, but starts humming nicely in the 2nd act.

October 18
50. Idle Hands* (1999)- The American Pie of horror.

October 19
51. Dead Souls* (2012)- This is alright, but come on, inheriting a spooky old house WITH a hot, young blonde squatter? I could have believed anything but that.

October 20
52. Damien: Omen II (1978)- Not a bad follow up to the original, but would have been more interesting if Damien questioned his destiny a lot more.
53. Dawn of the Dead (2004)- One of the best remakes ever. Man actors are so much better looking now than they were in the 70's.

October 21
54. The Final Conflict: Omen III (1982)- Diminishing returns for the series. Kinda like eating at Cracker Barrel.
55. House of Wax (2005)- What is it about modern horror movies where every character has to be unlikable? Rule #1: Give your audience a non-douchy character to root for.
56. The Conjuring 2 (2016)- I am not ashamed to love both Conjuring movies. Or admit they are the reason I started buying night lights.

October 22
57. 1922* (2017)- Good old Stephen King character studies, where you see how actions actually affect people. Tommy Jane was a great marbled-mouth M. F.'er.
58. Tales from the Crypt S7- Ep 11: Confession, Ep 12: Ear Today... Gone Tomorrow, Ep 13: The Third Pig
Toy Story of Terror
59. House on Willow Street* (2016)- Again, who to root for, the trailer park gang of kidnappers, or the demon? It's like Debbie Gibson vs Tiffany all over again.
60. The Evil Dead (1981)- It's hard to watch this movie without the weight of the entire franchise along with all the pale imitators and see how fresh, original and inventive this truly was. That said, who goes off into the dark woods by themselves armed with only a bathrobe?

October 23
61. The Evil Dead II (1987)- The sequel that gives you more... more blood, more gore, more humor, more effects and more chin.
62. Slither (2006)- Gunn's Thing/Zombie/Body Snatchers fun mash-up is either a red neck's wet dream or nightmare, I just can't decide.
63. Halloween (1978)- If you learn anything from this classic, it should be keep it simple stupid. All you need for a great horror movie is relatable characters, a creepy mood, and a great boogeyman. And knee-high socks, lots of knee-high socks.
64. Orphan (2009)- This is a tight little fright flick. And listen, Esther is my sleeper pick in the fantasy horror movie killers draft.

October 24
65. Annabelle: Creation* (2017)- Holy moley that was a restaurant quality spooky movie. And I am doing a Kickstarter for Annabelle vs Chucky... she will whoop his freckled ass.

October 25
66. Werewolf of London* (1935)- Things I learned from this movie; A) A werewolf's hair is far from perfect. B) If your wife's ex shows up and he's better looking than you, you are screwed, no matter what century. C) Movie alcoholics are funny, no matter what century.

October 26
67. She-Wolf of London* (1946)- Things I learned from this movie; A) There's no she-wolf in anyone's closet. B) Gaslighting is cool, no matter what century. C) Sisters before tricksters.

October 27
68. The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)- It's not easy having a good time... unless you take entertaining songs, an inane plot, and interesting dialogue and put them in a blender and set it to absurd (and fun).

October 28
69. Personal Shopper* (2016)- Kristen Stewart in a role she was born to play... herself. She is actually good as a perpetually bored millennial dealing with grief, identity crisis, and a TON of texting.
70. The Ruins (2008)- The most uncomfortable movie so far, this caused me to burn every plant in sight then shower for a week. Sorry my phytophilous peeps.
71. Stranger Things S2- Ep 1: Mad Max, Ep 2: Trick or Treat, Freak
72. The Conjuring (2013)- The one that started it all... well not really, I feel like the Insidious movies are a kissing cousin. This one nails the good writing, acting, and directing trifecta. This franchise is quickly become the Avengers of horror.

October 29
73. The Love Witch* (2016)- Maybe this movie was clever to boil down the gender stereotypes to their most rudimentary then play them against each other in that free spirit 60's vibe. Or maybe it wasn't funny, nor smart, nor well acted, even in parody. I will let you decide while I go enjoy a bowl of Fruity Pebbles and watch Friday the 13th part V.
74. The Mummy's Ghost* (1944)- Well that was a downer. The bad guys win???? It's just like watching a Super Bowl with the Patriots.
75. Stranger Things S2- Ep 3: The Pollywog, Ep 4: Will the Wise

October 30
76. Hocus Pocus (1993)- If you don't love this Halloween family classic then come at me bro. Really captures the spirit of the season in a fun way. On a side note, this movie is the only time I have found Sarah Jessica Parker attractive, don't know if that says something about her or me.
77. Stranger Things S2- Ep 5: Dig Dug, Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Scared Shrekless

October 31 Halloween
78. Trick 'r Treat (2007)- More than any other movie, I associate this one with this challenge. I fell in love with it during my 1st challenge and I watch it every year. This is a great updated "Tales From the Crypt", with a much quieter but more active Crypt Keeper.
79. The Funhouse (1981)- This used to be a Funhouse, but now it's full of evil clowns... and a murderous mutant carnival freak. This is a smaller, but effective early slasher style movie.
80. Broken* (2007)- Sure wished I'd have seen this BEFORE watching Game of Thrones. I just can't empathize with Cersei Lannister at all. Pretty good movie but... You got what you deserve you brother loving *#@$%!
81. The Mummy's Curse* (1944)- So the mummy goes down in a lake in Massachusetts and wakes up in a swamp in Louisiana... Oh-Keeeey. Sure the mummy looks creepy AF, but the scrappy chap only has one good leg, arm and eye, so bully for him for overcoming his handicaps.

Title in RED = Seen on an online service like Netflix
Title in GREEN = Seen on regular TV programming
Title in PURPLE = Seen in movie theater or screening room
31FSS = Movie from the 31 Film Subset
THN = Movie from the Theme Nights

NOVEMBER 1 (DUSK)
1. 31FSS: Cronos (1993) First feature film by Guillermo del Toro who would go on to bigger things though exploring similar themes. An antiquarian finds an ancient device that gives immortality at a price. Future Hellboy actor, Ron Perlman stars.
2. THN: Art-House / Avant Garde: The Mansion of Madness (1973) Absolutely hallucinogenic telling of the Poe tale "The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether". A doctor visits an asylum where the patients have taken over and madness reigns.

OCTOBER 1
3. 31FSS: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) Hadn't seen this one since the 80s. For a Chainsaw franchise movie this one has an unusually low bodycount preferring instead to focus on the Chainsaw family members for most of the film.
4. THN: Tobe Hooper Poltergeist (1982) A Tobe Hooper film but it has writer-producer's Steven Spielberg's hands all over the place, so much in fact that many think it was directed by him. All the hallmarks are here: kids, people staring into or off-camera in amazement, ILM special effects, the works. Still holds up.
5. The Ninth Gate (1999) Hadn't seen this one in a while but I remember it i intrigued me when it first came out. This devilish tale still holds up and has many layers. Roman Polanski directs Johnny Depp who gives an understated performance that fits his character perfectly. A great cast all around: Frank Langella, Lena Olin among others.

OCTOBER 2
6. 31FSS: C.H.U.D. (1984)
7. THN: Slime / Goo The Black Room* (2012) A movie that seems a throwback to the 80's and does it very well. A perfect mix of sex and horror with a dash of humor.

OCTOBER 3
8. THN: Slashers Maniac* (2017) I might get kicked of the forum for this but... I have never seen the original Maniac. As it is I approached this remake with fresh eyes and no preconceptions. An excellent story with very interesting direction and mood that superbly complements Elijah Wood's performance.

OCTOBER 4
9. THN: Animation Death Note (2006) Episodes: Shinsei / Taiketsu / Torihiki / Tsuiseki
10. Death Note (2006) Episodes: Kakehiki / Hokorobi / Donten / Mesen Totally addictive and very intelligent Anime series. The story here is not just the terrible power of the Death Note but the cat and mouse game between Kira an L.

OCTOBER 5
11. 31FSS: Bad Moon (1996) Low budget and unassuming but a very entertaining werewolf movie nonetheless. The werewolf looks fantastic and there is enough gore to make it menacing. Great characters and acting by Michael Pare and Mariel Hemingway.
12. THN: Werewolves An American Werewolf in Paris (1997) A huge step down from American Werewolf and a total wasted opportunity. See it for Julie Delpy only.

OCTOBER 6
13. 31FSS: Candyman (1992) Still holds up as one of the best of the 90s. Virginia Madsen's performance goes above and beyond what you would expect from a low-budget horror film. Tony Todd as the Candyman overplays the part a bit but it doesn't detract from the film. Great score as well.
14. THN: Folklore Sacrifice* (2016) Combines element of the British police drama with supernatural folklore, rather slow at times but an interesting story.

OCTOBER 7
15. Veronica* (2017) Spanish movie about a teenager who summons a demon during a Ouija session with her friends. The performance by the young actress is very good and there is an air of authenticity to the movie that makes it extra creepy.
16. THN: Hallucinations Red Shoes* (2005) Not to be confused with the movie about ballet slippers, this Korean film is about a woman who finds some red shoes in a subway that exert an evil influence on all who wear them.

OCTOBER 8
17. THN: ZombiesSanto vs The Zombies (1962) Santo fights some scientifically-created zombies who are used by an evil man to commit crimes. The usual fare.
18 The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
19. One Missed Call (2008) Hadn't seen this one in a while, a classic movie.

OCTOBER 9
20. 31FSS: Raw (2016) French film about cannibalism treating it like a symptom of a dysfunctional family. Lives up to it's title.
21. THN: Day of the Woman Blood Sabbath* (1972) Enough nudity to make it interesting, but not much else.

OCTOBER 10
22. THN: 1967 Viruta y Capulina en el Camino de los Espantos* (1967? Possibly 1965) Mexican comedy movie about a group of travelers encountering ghosts during a road trip. The typical Scooby Doo plot.

OCTOBER 11
23. THN: Skulls As Above, So Below (2014) Much as I loathe the found-footage genre, this one is pretty damn good and offers a real sense of the unearthly. A group of investigators delve deep into the catacombs of Paris in search of the Philosopher's Stone. What they find is Hell itself.
24. Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King (2006) Episodes: Battleground / The Road Virus Heads North Battleground is amusing but The Road Virus... kind of falls short and is very predictible.
25. Witchfinder General AKA The Conqueror Worm (1968) An understated performance by Vincent Price who usually eats scenery and hams it up. Here he brings his A-game to a tale of corruption during England's witch trial period.

OCTOBER 12
26. THN: Mummies Las Momias de Guanajuato (1972) The first of the Mummies from Guanajuato series and possibly the best. Main heroes are Mil Mascaras and Blue Demon but Santo makes an appearance at the end to save the day.
27. Tales of Terror (1962) Vincent Prices stars in all three of these Poe adaptations, the last one, The Case of M Valdemarr is the best.

OCTOBER 13
28. 31 FSS Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)
29. THN: F13 films Friday the 13th (2009) Considering the original F13 was not that great to begin with, this remake is pretty good.

OCTOBER 14
30. THN: GORE Wrong Turn 3
(2009) Watched it to fulfill the Theme Night as gore for gore's sake is uninteresting to me. Some good moments, though.
31. IT (1990) TV mini-series part 1 IT is starting to age, especially with the remake out but it still holds up.
32. The Pit and the Pendulum (1961) Vincent Price is always great to watch and Barbara Steele as well. I only wish she had more screen time.
33. La Cámara del Terror AKA Fear Chamber (1968) Allegedly Boris Karloff's last movie.

October 15
34. THN: Anthologies Tales from the Darkside: the Movie
(1990)

October 16
35. THN: Fangoria covers Under the Skin (2013)

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

☼ = First time viewing

September 30th
1. "Manos" the Hands of Fate (Synapse)
This is the Synapse HD restored disc. My relationship with this film is "It's Complicated." However, watching the movie outside of MST3K illuminates whole levels of 'badness' that weren't evident before. I might just return to MST3K only for this one in the future

October 1st
2. ☼The Creep Behind the Camera (Synapse)
I figured this would be more lovingly humorous like Ed Wood but Art Nelson a.k.a. Vic Savage was too abusive and whacked out to have much fun watching the film. Still interesting background on such a bad movie.

3. ☼The Creeping Terror (Synapse)
I think this is one of the more utterly boring atomic age monster movies I've ever seen. I'm honestly surprised this movie came out in '64 though - seems like it should have been in the late '50s more than anything. I'll just tell myself if the original audio tapes hadn't been lost, it would have been just as ridiculous as the narration that goes on forever...until it doesn't

October 2nd
4. Re-animator (Integral Version) (Arrow 4k)
I hadn't seen the integral cut before. There were a couple of interesting scenes but I think for a movie like this the shorter unrated cut might work better so it doesn't wear out its welcome

October 3rd
5. Children of the Corn (Arrow)
This doesn't seem to be too highly regarded but it was probably one of the first 'gory' horror movies I watched as a kid.
I still find it really enjoyable and think the kid actors did a pretty good job creeping me out


October 5th
6. ☼It Came from Beneath the Sea
I realized recently that I really had never seen any of the films with Ray Harryhausen's notable effects work so I wanted to remedy that. The movie itself is fairly standard monster fare but I did enjoy watching the stop-motion work.

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

1. Color Me Blood Red

2/5 - Slow movie about a painter that can't get the right color for his art, until he discovers blood is the shade he needs. With only a few kills and only two completed blood paintings, none of which get sold, not much happens.

2. The Wizard of Gore

3.5/5 - Montag the Magician, uses illusions and hypnosis to kill audience members on stage but not in the traditional sense. Perfect for the surreal theme night, while the audience sees a normal trick, like a spike impaled into a woman's head, he's actually doing it, pulling out the brain and having a blast while doing it. The participant doesn't feel the effects until after the show is over and they've left, when the act finally catches up to them. How will his greatest illusion play out? An illusion done live on the air, effecting all that watch!

Decent pace and extreme amounts of blood kept me under his spell.

3. Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)

4.5/5 - Classic horror that won't age itself out. Shows what a simple plot and effects, combined with appropriate pacing can achieve. At the other end of the spectrum, we have the Transformers series.

I like to revisit this one every few years so it stays somewhat fresh. Watching it back to back would be dull, unless I was working through commentaries.

4. Love Me Deadly

2.5/5 - Necrophilia with an attractive lady as the star. She also has some daddy issues going on. Without giving away too much, this is worth a watch but probably not a purchase. Rewatchability is rather limited without a decently long break between viewings.

5. Vampire at Midnight

2/5 - It started out as a cross between an 80s cop action movie with a vampire killer. Then about halfway through, it didn't know what it wanted to be anymore and all the action went away and the end came across as a wet fart.

6. The Thing

5/5 - I never watched this as a kid because the cover looked boring. This is an amazing movie with great rewatchability value. Can't wait till I can show it to my kids, when they're old enough to not have nightmares from it.

7. Ticks

2.5/5 - Weird mix of a kid's horror movie that's a bit graphic and rated R. Seeing Carlton from Fresh Prince as a street thug doesn't really work for me and took me out of the movie a bit, along with a few other parts. Still work watching, especially if you like Clint Howard.

8. Mortuary

1.5/5 - This just wasn't good. Someone tried to make a movie, I guess and instead made this. Figuring out the killer wasn't hard (since they show his face but he's wearing white makeup as a disguise. I don't think it was meant to be that obvious. The single red herring was a bit too obvious. Then the end came. Then the movie went to my sell pile.

9. Poor Pretty Eddie

3/5 - A female country singer's car breaks down in hillbilly country, staying at a motel run by an old woman and her boy toy that doesn't really love her. He wants to be a country singer, so he sees his chance to get into the biz. Will he make it? Does he hook up with her and find out she's crazy after it's too late? You'll just need to watch. Also stars Lurch from The Addams Family tv show.

10. H. P. Lovecraft's Dunwich Horror and Other Stories

3/5 - Japanese claymation of 3 Lovecraft stories: The Picture in the House, The Dunwich Horror, The Festival. Well done and enjoyable.

11. Bleed

1.5/5 - I thought I'd seen this before but if I had, I'd completely forgotten it (for good reason). It's a low budget slasher mystery with fake boobs.

12. Taxi Tonight

1.5/5 - Thailand version of Vanishing Hitchhiker. Only this time it's a taxi she vanishes in but then she haunts it for a reason. A pretty boring reason and there's apparently some suspense from the mystery that didn't come across well. Eventually it ended.

13. Something Weird

3.5/5 - Bizarre but with a plot that could be followed. LSD, ESP, the government, a serial killer, and a witch. I don't want to give away too much because it's worth going into it completely new to it.

14. Dead & Buried

4/5 - In a small town, the citizens are killing those that visit the town but then they start showing up as residents. Very good and I recommended this as a subset a few years ago after watching it the first time.

15. Two on a Guillotine

1/5 - A bit long, bad pacing, and not very good. Those familiar with Charlie and his Orchestra will recognize a tune about halfway through. Completely lackluster ending. Poor special effects. Avoid.

16. Species

3.5/5 - When this originally came out, the empath character annoyed me to no end. Now he's not nearly annoying, which made this alien invasion movie that much more enjoyable.

17. Interview with the Vampire

4.5/5 - Good movie but omg, all the vampire stuff that became popular was way too much for me. Still, it's a million times better than Twilight and the rest of the Ann Rice sequels.

18. Vampire Circus

1.5/5 - I didn't like this the first time I watched it, or the second, and now the third. For me, it's just boring.

19. Dale and Tucker vs Evil

4/5 - I first watched this years ago as a workprint, when it had a Guns N Roses end credits song. It still holds up for me and was funny. Tried watching the bonus short that showed Dale and Tucker are Evil but it got a bit boring, so I cut out early.

20. The Forest

2.5/5 - This was bad but in a good way like Manos. It's like Disney's Mr. Boogedy, a slasher film, and Manos, had a 3 way and The Forest was the child. Based on this description, you can probably tell if you'd like it or not.

21. The Gruesome Twosome

2.5/5 - Horror/Comedy about a wig shop owner that makes wigs by scalping local girls.

22. The Man with Two Heads

1.5/5 - Retelling of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Had potential at the start but never really went anywhere. Not graphic at all. Boring till the end.

23. The Skull

1.5/5 - Like the previous movie, it kind of started with potential but by the end, I just wanted it to be over. Sade's skull was stolen and the owners are possessed by it into committing crimes. If they don't commit crimes, the skull apparently just does it for them, in the most boring way shown on film possible.

24. The Last House on the Left

4/5 - Rape/Revenge movie with comic relief provided by cops. Gritty looking movie that pairs with I Spit on Your Grave if you're looking for this kind of double feature. Looking for a triple feature? Add in Ms. 45.

25. Night Watch

2/5 - Elizabeth Taylor in a uneven gaslighting type flick. The suspense was good for the most part but by the end, things were so uneven it just didn't compare with the rest of the movie. I was planning on keeping this movie until I got to the end, when I realized I wouldn't want to watch it again. It's worth a rent because parts are good but not the entire package.

26. The House at the Edge of the Park

4/5 - I know a lot of people don't care for this but I think it's pretty good. Bloody with a lot of crime. Decent enough plot I don't want to give away too much of. If you're into I Spit on Your Grave and Ms. 45, then you should try this one too.

27. Holidays

0.5/5 - Brought to you by people that don't understand that horror isn't a simplistic idea turned into a short where being quirky and bloody equals horror. There's more stories than your typical anthology of 3-4 films but that's because of the problem I brought up earlier. When there's not much meat to a story, you either have short boring one or longer ones that need to be trimmed. At least in this case, they were smart enough to keep them short. As with most anthologies, the better ones are towards the end and this is no exception. Problem is, the ones at the end are more of the ones you'd find at the beginning of an anthology film that had good ending ones. A lot of the "twists" are so completely obvious that it ruins a lot of them, no matter how lackluster they are in the first place.

I would have rated this a 0 instead of a 0.5 but there was a few minutes worth of good stories out of this 105 minute movie, that also contains 9 minutes of credits.

28. Bloodthirsty Butchers

2.5/5 - An improperly framed (1:33 trimmed to widescreen) movie that combines Sweeney Todd and the story of people making meat pies/sausages out of people. It's interesting but amusing considering the budget, or lack of, they worked with.

29. The Black Cat

0.5/5 - Based off the Poe story. A movie that started out ok but after 20 minutes or so, I just wanted it to end sooo badly.

30. Cabin Fever

3/5 - This is pretty good. There's some things lacking, like some unlikable characters and other things I can't quite put my finger on. It's borderline on keeping the movie though. Any worse and I'd ditch it but I'm going to hold onto it.

31. Torture Dungeon

0/5 - Well, I found something worse than Holidays. The twist in this Torture Dungeon is that I was the one being tortured by watching this.

32. Torso

2.5/5 - Decent giallo but I was super tired toward the end, so that made me lose some of the impact.

33. Evil Toons

3.5/5 - Great commentary if you're interested in film making. First time I watched this, I didn't care too much for it but this time was better, especially with the commentary. I also took the time to match up my animation cell with the frame of the movie it was used, then wasted my time showing my completely uninterested wife my discover.

34. A Taste of Blood

1.5/5 - It took me almost a week to finish this and I took a break from the challenge because it was just so dull. It also made me think about other things. If I became a vampire, I'd probably move to asia so I wouldn't have to worry about crosses so much.

35. Student Bodies

2.5/5 - Kind of a pre-Scream/Scary Movie combination. Can be enjoyable with the right mindset. It bills itself as the first horror comedy and has some Scream rules going on with it.

36. Night of 1,000 Cats

1.5/5 - US cut is missing 1/3 (30 minutes) of the complete version. 1/3 of the remaining US version is helicopter related. If you like helicopters, this is the movie for you.

37. It (2017)

3/5 - Good but not great and I think it's been overrated. Relies on people thinking something moving/shaking faster than normal and jump scares is what's scary. Ever trailer prior to the start of the movie did the same thing as well.

38. Lights Out, Mummy Hand, Rotten Fruit, Mother of My Child, Don't Play with Ghosts, Bob's Burgers 2017 Halloween episode, Fresh Off The Boat 2017 Halloween episode
