VENTURE INTO THE LITERARY WORLD:

If you're getting a little burned out on movies, try reading a horror novel or novella.
Amazon and B&N are constantly giving away free eBooks ...some occasionally in the horror genre:

Extend the conversation by joining our Facebook Page.
It's fairly non-intrusive - basically it lets you know about the upcoming giveaways, new threads posted, etc.

Also, be aware that very few subscribers are getting posts from the page due to Facebook being one greedy bastard.
If you hover your mouse over the "Liked" button and click 'Get Notifications' this should fix the problem.

Extend it even further by joining our Google+ Circle.

Not currently in use. Maybe it will serve a purpose one day.

Extend it ...straight to hell. Try our Twitter account.
Yet another social media outlet where anything goes.

Yeah, also not being used. Possibly this too will serve a purpose someday.

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

No goal, watchlist or checklist-following this year.

- All first time viewings, unless indicated by a *.
- I'm on iCM: http://www.icheckmovies.com/profile/mightysparks/
- TSZDT: https://theyshootzombies.com/

2010: 28
2011: 176
2012: 306
2013: 182
2014: 158
2015: 144
2016: 43 (dropped out)

September 30
# The Birch (2013) 5/10
Review/comments: Basic in story and execution. Build-up was slow and pay-off was pointless. Not scary or interesting. 4 mins
# Le diable noir (1905) 7/10
Review/comments: 'Horror' is pushing it, but I found it just plain enjoyable. It was fun and the effects were pretty great. 4 mins
# Zombinladen: The Axis of Evil Dead (2011) 7/10
Review/comments: This was stupidly funny. The first minute or so I found really funny, and after that it was ok. The political and Osama references weren't funny at all. 4 mins
# The Event (2012) 7/10
Review/comments: Really liked the animation and the bleak and depressing feeling. The dialogue was a bit lame sometimes and I felt the story needed a little more clarity. 4 mins
# The Haunted Hotel (1907) 5/10
Review/comments: Strange watching this and Melies' film from the same year so close together, because this seemed so plain and dull in comparison. 5 mins
# Thunder (1982) 6/10
Review/comments: The point of it completely eluded me, but it was still oddly entertaining at times. Reading an analysis of it made it seem even more pointless. 5 mins

October 1
1. Mr. Jones (2013) 5/10
Review/comments: Took itself too seriously and had too many plot holes and dumb character behaviour. It didn't seem to know what kind of film it was and broke too many found footage rules that made it lose credibility and immersion.

October 4
2. Chinjeolhan geumjassi (2005) 5/10
Review/comments: Messy plot, messy characters, messy film.

October 5
3. Grave (2016) 8/10
Review/comments: Amazing performances and character development. Cinematography and sound design very impressive too.
4. Don't Kill It (2016) 6/10
Review/comments: Ok fun, but humour often falls flat and is only saved by some funny lines and fun killing scenes.

October 6
5. February (2015) 5/10
Review/comments: Great performance by the lead, but the story was convoluted and messy, making it seem pointless.
6. The Invisible Ray (1936) 4/10
Review/comments: Didn't understand what the title had to do with anything in the film. The story was pretty dumb and it pretty much played like a typical 30s horror/sci-fi film.

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



My Personal October Horror Movie Challenge History: 2007 - 100; 2008 - 50; 2009 - 71; 2010 - 78; 2011 - 52; 2012 - 52; 2013 - 74; 2014 - 67; 2015 - 100; 2016 - 31

2017 Goal - Just to have fun!

October 1
1. It (2017) ☼ [Theater] - Excellent performances by the young actors and a worthy first entry.
2. Bates Motel - First You Dream, Then You Die / Nice Town You Picked, Norma (2013) [DVD] - The series manages to capture the creepy factor right off the bat.
3. The River - Magus / Marbeley (2012) ☼ [DVD] - Interesting, though too much "found footage" quality for my liking.

October 2
4. Get Out (2017) [BD] - I may have enjoyed this even more watching it for the 2nd time.
5. The Evil Dead (1981) ☼ [BD] - Seems like there must have been hundreds of horror films released around this time, a real peak for the genre.
6. Horror Express (1972) ☼ [BD] - Had no idea what this was about when I started. Turned out to be a fun creature feature.

October 3
7. The River - Los Ciegos / A Better Man (2012) ☼ [DVD] - Another minor annoyance with this series is the bleeping out of profanity.
8. Shark Night (2011) ☼ [BD] - Far from a classic, but far more enjoyable than I thought it might be.
9. Flatliners (2017) ☼ [Theater] - A real yawner during the first half, IMO. Picked up quite a bit after that.

October 4
10. Split (2016) ☼ [DVD] - Uneven last few days. Films with poor reviews have been decent. This one underwhelmed me after high expectations.
11. Bates Motel - What's Wrong With Norman? / Trust Me... (2013) [DVD] - One thing for sure about this series. The lead roles were perfectly cast.
12. Bates Motel - Ocean View / The Truth (2013) [DVD] - Enjoying this show more than I did when it first aired.

October 5
13. Open Water (2003) [BD] - This film was apparently shot using handheld digital cameras. It's distracting during the pre-ocean scenes. Once it gets in the water, that's the last thing I was thinking about.
14. Bates Motel - The Man in Number 9 / A Boy and His Dog (2013) [DVD] - While the 2 leads have their quirks, there are lots of strange characters in the show.
15. Don't Breathe (2016) [Streaming] - A recent favorite with an interesting story.

October 6
16. Open Water 2: Adrift (2006) ☼ [BD] - Interesting concept. At times, I hoped the folks in the film steered clear of a shark attack. Other times, I wished for a shark to appear. That's how annoying a few of the characters were.

October 7
17. Bates Motel - Underwater / Midnight (2013) [DVD] - I need to check out the following seasons.

October 8
18. Dracula (1931) [BD] - Found myself using a "Dracula Voice" for some time after it was over.

October 9
19. Phantom of the Opera (1943) [BD] - First exposure to the Phantom. Several other versions to explore at some point.
20. The Mummy (1932) [BD] - A little slow-moving at first, just like a mummy.

October 10
21. Kingdom Hospital - Thy Kingdom Come (2004) ☼ [DVD] - Intriguing Stephen King fare. Definitely hooks you following a significant event early on.
22. The Roommate (2011) ☼ [BD] - This has been done before, and better. Yet it was still worth a watch.
23. Kingdom Hospital - Death's Kingdom / Goodbye Kiss (2004) ☼ [DVD] - I think my favorite part is the gnarling aardvark. That's a sentence I never thought I would type.
24. The River - Peaches / Doctor Emmet Cole (2012) ☼ [DVD] - This series is picking up speed.

October 11
25. Kingdom Hospital - West Side of Midnight / Hook's Kingdom (2004) ☼ [DVD] - ...and this one is losing my interest

October 12
26. Kingdom Hospital - The Young and the Headless / Black Noise (2004) ☼ [DVD]
27. Frankenstein (1931) [BD] - The classics are timeless

October 13
28. The River - The Experiment / Row, Row, Row Your Boat (2012) ☼ [DVD] - Turns out to be lots of fun. But has me wondering why the series didn't continue.

October 16
29. Kingdom Hospital - Heartless / Butterfingers (2004) ☼ [DVD] - The series tries to keep my interest by having a baseball themed episode.
30. The Invisible Man (1933) [BD] - True story: I've dressed as the invisible man for an event before. Easiest costumer ever.

October 17
31. The Raven (2012) ☼ [BD] - Borderline horror with the serial killer theme. Period piece with solid performances.
32. The Fly (1958) ☼ [BD] -

October 18
33. Friday the 13th: The Series - Vanity's Mirror / Tattoo (1988) ☼ [DVD] -
34. Friday the 13th: The Series - Brain Drain / The Electrocutioner (1988) ☼ [DVD] -

October 19
35. Arachnophobia (1990) [BD] - Jeff Daniels is an underappreciated talent.
36. Happy Death Day (2017) ☼ [Theater] - Lots of fun. Contender for favorite new horror film of the year.

October 20
37. Mama (2013) ☼ [BD] -

☼ = First Time Viewing

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

Mallratcal's 9th October Horror Movie Challenge!

Oct 1st
1. Poltergeist II: The Other Side ☠☠½ / New / Blu-Ray / 90 min / 1986
An ok sequel that strays into the schlock. I really like the family (they feel real) and the worm monster looked cool. The big showdown was what put this movie over into schlock territory. Julian Beck as Kane has to be a highlight.

2. Alone in the Dark ☠☠☠ / New / DVD / 93 min / 1982
Pretty good. This is what a touchy feely, Dr. Loomis will get you! I thought this was going to be more of a siege movie but that doesn't begin until the last act. The reveal of "The Bleeder" was so obvious that I don't think it was supposed to be a surprise.

3. The Vagrant ☠☠☠ / New / DVD / 91 min / 1992
This was good. Funnier than I expected. Bill Paxton and Marshall Bell are very entertaining. At one point I thought Paxton's character mightactually be insane. If you have a hobo living across the street from you it's probably better to leave them alone.

Oct 2nd
4. House II: The Second Story / New / DVD / 88 min / 1987
This was bad. I guess this was aimed at kids? The comedy was bad, so maybe it wasn't? I really don't know who this was made for. This time the movie centers around a magical crystal skull. The special effects were mostly good. I'm a little surprised that Bill Maher didn't play more scummy executive roles.

5. Pigs ☠☠½ / New / Blu-Ray / 80 min / 1973
Good with a nice but obvious twist. Another nice transfer by Vinegar Syndrome. Pretty short movie with a small budget, I was expecting a lot of gore but it was fairly bloodless.

6. Alligator ☠☠½ / New / VOD / 91 min / 1980
This was enjoyable, the alligator effects were really good. Also nice to see Robert Forster landed on his feet in Twin Peaks. There is a lot of walking around in the sewers but Forster's character is good enough to carry it and not be boring.

7. The Prophecy 3: The Ascent ☠☠ / Blu-Ray / 84 min / 2000
I like the mythos and Christopher Walken is always good, but the movie was kind of thin. It's a direct sequel to the 2nd installment, this time focusing on the now adult messiah, who now has to choose between the angels and humans. Dude wasn't given much of a choice though.

8. Splatter University / DVD / 78 min / 1984
Just as cheap and boring as I remember. Movie would have benefited with some ADR. There is a slasher loose at a catholic college.

Oct 3rd
9. Urban Legends: Final Cut ☠☠ / New / DVD / 97 min / 2000
This was a little on the slow side, nothing special. I looked good though. Bunch of red herrings, I thought it would end up with the twin urban legend but was surprised when it went a different way.

10. Jennifer ☠☠☠ / New / Blu-Ray / 90 min / 1978
Very light on the scares (nothing really happens until the climax) but the movie did a good job of building the characters (you really want to see the bad ones get their comeuppance). This was trying to capitalize off of Carrie, but ended up better than just a clone.

11. Manhunter ☠☠☠☠½ / New / VOD / 120 min / 1986
Really good, as is to be expected with early Mann films. Hugh Dancy definitely took inspiration from William Petersen in his portrayal of the Will Graham character.

12. Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth ☠☠½ / VOD / 93 min / 1992
Better than I remembered. I like how they continued the story from the 2nd movie. There is some cheese (the scene in the church was just weird) but there is so much Pinhead in this to make up for that.

Oct 4th
13. Happy Hell Night ☠☠ / DVD / 87 min / 1992
The old college kids release a demon from a mental asylum story. The killer is creepy looking (not so much when he speaks). Despite the promising start the kills all happen very quickly. Looks much older than '92. There is a motorcycle stunt at the end that is laughably bad, and an early appearance of Sam Rockwell.

14. Hellraiser: Bloodline ☠☠ / DVD / 85 min / 1996
Not bad, certainly not as bad as I remembered. I can appreciate them giving a backstory to the box, but sometimes it is better if it is left unsaid. Also has an early appearance from Adam Scott.

15. The Blob ☠☠☠½ / DVD / 95 min / 1988
Really gruesome gore effects. I prefer this to the original.


Oct 5th
16. April Fool's Day ☠☠½ / DVD / 89 min / 1986
It's a good movie with a good cast of characters. A great twist but once you've seen it all of the tension is gone on a rewatch.

17. Wolfen ☠☠☠½ /New / DVD / 115 min / 1981
A Detective hunts a killer that turns out to be wolves, in NYC. A good take on werewolf genre. A fairly long movie but then characters are engaging. Gregory Hines was a lot of fun.

18. Bats ☠½ /New / DVD / 91 min / 1999
I thought this would be a movie where someone is desperately trying to convince authorities of the danger, but it was the opposite. Everyone was a stock character. Evil scientist, hard-nosed good scientist, straight shooting lawman, cynical funny black guy. The Bats were goofy looking, they reminded me of Ghoulies. At least it wasn't all CG.

19. Troll ☠☠ /New / DVD / 82 min / 1986
Pretty weird movie. A Troll takes the form of a young girl and starts transforming residents of an apartment building into Ghoulies, who have singalongs. The Troll is not actually evil, he just wants his world back.There is also a good witch who has a penis plant, and the protagonist is named Harry Potter Jr. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is in this as well, she gets turned into a wood nymph or something.

Oct 6th
20. April Fool's Day /New / DVD / 91 min / 2008
All of the characters were unlikable, the movie looked and sounded cheap and it was anticlimactic. I fully understand why this didn't get a theatrical release.

21. Sole Survivor ☠☠☠ /New /VOD / 85 min / 1983
Maybe a little on the slow side but it was interesting. You can really see how Final Destination and It Follows borrowed for it.

22. The Nest ☠☠½ /New /Blu-Ray / 89 min / 1988
Not bad, took awhile to get going. A corporation that is looking to wipe out roaches ends up creating monster roaches, that end up running amok on an island town. There are a couple of human/roach hybrids as well.

23. Saw VI ☠☠☠ /New /Blu-Ray / 91 min / 2009
As good as the last one. Less focus on the gore and more on the development of the characters from past movies. This time the targets are the health insurance people that wouldn't help Jigsaw.


Oct 7th
24. Thir13en Ghosts ☠½ / DVD / 91 min / 2001
Not very good. IT looks good, there was definitely money put into production design, although you don't get many good glimpses of the ghosts. It's the standard "dead" uncle leaving his haunted house to his nephew, story with a double cross.

25. Destroyer ☠☠½ / New / DVD / 94 min / 1988
Film crew shooting inside of a prison get attacked by a thought to be dead serial killer. Most of the deaths happen off screen, which is too bad as the killer is a gorilla and they could have used his size in inventive ways. I'm assuming the budget was the problem.

26. Silent Night ☠☠½ / New / Blu-Ray / 94 min / 2012
Pretty dark cynical movie. They tried to do a thing where the victims got a present from the killer but it didn't really make sense given who the victims were. There was also an angry Santa with too much screen time. There were 2 call backs to the old movies which were appreciated.

27. The Return of the Evil Dead ☠☠½ / New / DVD / 91 min / 1973
Town oaf raises up the Templars during a festival. Not has suspenseful as the first one, they attack the town and the survivors hide in a church, where the movie slows down and a love... cube? plays out. Some effects are hokey but the Knights are still creepy.

Oct 8th
28. Blood Shack ½☠ / DVD / 70 min / 1971
Watched with the Joe Bob Briggs commentary, this movie is too painful without it. Dang 'ol Chooper, man.

29. Child's Play ☠☠☠ / DVD / 87 min / 1988
Good flick. Brad Dourif really adds life to Chucky with his great voice. Mike became super useless after he got knocked out during the climax of the film, which was weird. Pretty low body count.

30. Child's Play 2 ☠☠☠½ / DVD / 84 min / 1990
I think this is better than the first one, it never slows down and Chucky is hilarious throughout. I liked the foster family, except for Phil, he was kind of a dick.

Oct 9th
31. Child's Play 3 ☠☠½ / DVD / 89 min / 1991
Chucky returns to terrorize a military school with the final battle at an amusement park. Another small body count and not enough Chucky for my tastes. Maybe Chucky wouldn't be so pissed off if adults didn't treat him so rough.

32. The Dentist ☠½ / DVD / 92 min / 1996
Takes quite awhile to get going but tooth torture can go a long way. Corbin Bernsen is good in this and has an early appearance from Mark Ruffalo. I'm glad Sarah got her braces removed at least.

33. Bride of Chucky ☠☠½ / DVD / 89 min / 1998
Pretty enjoyable take on The Bride of Frankenstein. This was way more of a comedy than anything else.

Oct 10th
34. Leprechaun 2 ☠½ / DVD / 85 min / 1994
Pretty boring. The rules change from the first movie and now the Leprechaun is after a bride but he ends up losing a gold coin and spends the rest of the movie trying to get it back. No surprise this was the last on to play in theaters. Shevonne Durkin was not good with the acting, in this.

35. C.H.U.D. ☠☠½ / New / VOD / 88 min / 1984
I put off watching this movie because of how it looked, but in HD the dirt and grime looked pretty good. A photographer and police officer look into the disappearances of homeless people and find a government cover-up and C.H.U.D.s. Early John Goodman and a Home Alone connection.

36. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre ☠☠☠☠ / DVD / 83 min / 1974
They way Leatherface bursts into a room is terrifying. Still effective today. Franklin was pretty annoying and I wonder what happened to that big rig driver at the end?

37. Silent Night, Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out! ☠☠ / New / DVD / 90 min / 1989
A doctor is using a young psychic, Laura, to make contact with Ricky who is in a coma. Ricky wakes up and carnage ensues. Ricky is also missing the top half of his head, but he keeps his brain safe with a snazzy translucent hat with antennae and flashing lights on it. This movie is fairly weird and I'm surprised it hasn't been riffed, yet. Also has a kinder, gentler Leo Johnson. Benjamin Horne was his usual dubious self.

Oct 11th
38. The Forsaken ☠½ / DVD / 90 min / 2001
A man driving across the country meets a vampire hunter and ends up hunting a group of vampires. It's really not very good. Plenty of better vampire movies in this style exist.

39. Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror ☠☠ / DVD / 85 min / 1981
Not great, I'd say below average. The zombie makeup was sub-par, they looked like confused grandpas. Though they used tools, so they were smarter than most zombies, but they were deaf, so it's kind of a trade-off. Michael is probably the creepiest "kid" (no kid wears their pants up to their armpits!)in a horror movie. Also it's the "nights of terror", but the zombies only attack during one night.

Oct 12th
40. Urban Legends: Bloody Mary ☠½ / New / DVD / 93 min / 2005
A ghost of a murdered girl comes back for revenge after a prank is played on a new group of girls. This movie looked like something from Lifetime Network. Everything was shot in close up and it was edited very poorly, it felt like it had no flow. Just bland. Also had poor CGI, a predictable twist and nothing had any weight to it. Brothers dead? So what?

Oct 13th
41. Friday the 13th ☠☠☠ / DVD / 95 min / 1980
It's light on scares but I like the cast.

Friday the 13th: Part 2 ☠☠☠½ / DVD / 87 min / 1981
42. Might be the best in the franchise.

43. Friday the 13th: Part III ☠☠☠ / DVD / 95 min / 1982
Another solid entry in the franchise. Happens 1 day after Part 2 and gives us a new harbinger, RIP Ralph. Chris is probably my favorite heroine. Only part I didn't care for was her story of running into Jason before.

44. Friday the 13th ☠☠☠ / Blu-Ray / 105 min / 2009
Really good remake. I still think this one holds up where as other franchises have not aged well. The end chase was a little bit long,but this was the unrated version, I don't remember if the theatrical version cut that down or not.

Oct 14th
45. Tenebre ☠☠☠½ / New /DVD / 101 min / 1982
A good mystery with a nice twist. Also had a pretty good soundtrck.

46. One Dark Night ☠½ / New / DVD / 89 min / 1982
Pretty boring, the action doesn't start until an hour and five minutes in. An initiation prank in a mausoleum goes wrong when a recently dead psychic that feeds on fear energy wakes up. But his psychic daughter saves the day with the help of a compact mirror. The effects were pretty cheap but some of the corpses looked pretty creepy.

47. Jack Frost ☠½ / Blu-Ray / 89 min / 1997
Pretty cornball movie, at least it didn't take itself seriously. Not as good as I remembered.

Oct 15th
48. Why Horror? ☠☠☠½ / New / VOD / 81 min / 2014
This was ok, nothing special. Just looked at why people enjoyed horror but wasn't very deep.

Oct 16th
49. Happy Birthday to Me ☠☠☠☠ / New / DVD / 111 min / 1981
Thought this was going to be a standard slasher, but it was better. There is a weird reveal at the end, but that's kind of a trope in slasher films. Thanks to Mountain Biker for his list as that's the reason I finally gave it a shot. Previously the run time had put me off it. Don't want to spoil anything but it takes place at an upper crust school and involves a strange medical experiment.

50. Initiation: Silent Night, Deadly Night 4 / New / DVD / 90 min / 1990
This was nothing special and shared nothing from the previous 3 entries in the franchise. This is centered around a reporter investigating a spontaneous combustion and ends up in the clutches of Egyptian priestesses (and Clint Howard). It had a good cast but everyone acted so strange, it was very weird.

51. Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 ☠☠½ / DVD / 90 min / 2000
Not bad. It becomes a pretty good psychological horror movie about a group of people on a Blair Witch tour.

Oct 17th
52. Pin ☠☠☠½ / New / DVD / 103 min / 1988
Creepy. Creepy is the best way to describe this. This is what happens when you befriend an anatomical dummy.

53. Bone Tomahawk ☠☠☠½ / New / VOD / 132 min / 2015
Great cast. When the action hits it's all very quick and very violent. A band of cannibals abduct some townsfolk so the sheriff rounds up a posse to get them back. If you don't care about westerns this might not be for you. Most of the movie is the posse travelling and dealing with bandits.

54. The Slayer ☠☠ / New / VOD / 90 min / 1982
2 couples vacation on a private island, one of them has dreams of them being killed. Then it starts happening for real, or does it...?
I might be a bit generous with 2 stars, there are long stretches where nothing happens. I'll have to give this another shot sometime.

Oct 18th
55. Quarantine ☠☠½ / Blu-Ray / 89 min / 2008
Not as good on a 2nd viewing, the shaky-cam was nausea inducing.

Oct 19th
56. The Hills Have Eyes ☠☠☠☠ / DVD / 89 min / 1977
The greatest movie about desert dwelling cannibals. Beast is also the best dog in a horror movie with 2 kills. Brenda was annoying with all the screaming.

57. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer ☠☠☠½ / DVD / 83 min / 1986
Everything in this movie is worn out and ugly looking. Henry somehow created a bigger monster than himself.

58. Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge ☠☠ / New / DVD / 83 min / 1991
The timeline gets messed up with this entry but the series is ridiculous so it doesn't really matter. Set during WW2, Toulon starts killing nazis, after they kill his wife. This gives us the origins of the puppets.

Oct 20th
59. Frailty ☠☠☠½ / Blu-Ray / 100 min / 2001
Good flick even knowing the twists and turns.

60. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 ☠☠☠ / New / 101 min / 1986
I didn't expect it to be so much of a comedy. Dennis Hopper was good, but not in the movie nearly enough. The sets were pretty amazing looking and the final showdown was comedy gold. I now think Lloyd Kaufman is doing a Jim Siedow impression.

61. Beetlejuice ☠☠☠☠☠ / Blu-Ray / 92 min / 1988
One of those perfect movies.

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



First-Time Viewing: 21 | Blu-Ray:7 | DVD: 9 | TV: 4 | Streaming: 24 | Commentaries Listened To: 1

1920: 0 | 1930s: 1 | 1940s: 1 | 1950s: 3 | 1960s: 4 | 1970s: 8 | 1980s: 10 | 1990s: 7 | 2000s: 5 | 2010s: 11


Sep. 30
1. Cat People (1942)-DVD-**** I finally opened my unwatched Val Lewton boxset to watch Cat People. One of the finest horror films of the 1940s, Cat People relies upon atmospheric direction and acting to create a sense of unease in this story of a woman who may be a were-panther who kills her victims when she is emotionally aroused.--With commentary.
2. Cronos (1993)-Blu-Ray-**** Guillermo Del Toro's first film is shows the promise of a talented, young director. Cronos contains several of the themes of his later films: a child in danger, brutality vs kindness, the persistence of the past. Is it just me, or are his films in Spanish better than his English films?

Oct. 1
3. The Boy (2016)-TV-*** Lauren Cohan (Maggie from The Walking Dead) carries this film about a nanny hired to look after a doll. The twist is easy to figure out from the beginning of the film, but the execution is so well done that it's an enjoyable watch.
4. Spontaneous Combustion (1990)-Streaming-** Tobe Hooper's directorial career was on its downward trajectory when he wrote and directed this movie, starring Brad Dourif as a schlemiel who develops the ability to set people on fire with his mind, courtesy of parents who had been nuclear test guinea pigs in the 50s. I enjoyed this despite its flaws.
5. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1987)-TV-** Dennis Hopper saves this movie. I'm not a fan of the TCM franchise, but Hopper gives this film his own brio.
6. The Mutations (1972)-Streaming-** Donald Pleasence plays a mad scientist who uses his students as guinea pigs to test his theories on joining plant and animal tissue. The movie also features a nearly unrecognizable Tom Baker (the 4th Doctor) as the deformed henchman from a local carnival who kidnaps the victims, and terrific Michael Dunn, the dwarf actor best known for playing Dr. Loveless in The Wild, Wild West. I was all set to love this flick--mutations! mad science!--but this was just tedious, bits of horror interspersed with melodramatic overacting. You'd think a film set in the Swinging London of the early 70s would be better lit and more colorful, but the movie is monochromatic. There's also a subplot involving the other people who are exhibits in the carnival that's straight out of Freaks and adds nothing to the film.

Oct. 2
7. The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971)-Streaming-***** From the moment Felix Mendelssohn's "War March of the Priests" plays as Phibes makes his grand entrance, I am transported to 1920s London. The film boasts an impressive cast of British character actors led by the immortal Vincent Price as the mad organist Anton Phibes who wreaks terrible vengeance on the medical team that failed to save his late wife.
8. C.H.U.D. (1984)-Streaming-*** I haven't seen this movie in years, but it holds up pretty well. The CHUDs themselves aren't used too much, which is good because the costumes would look silly if they were shown in full.

Oct. 3
9. Amer (2009)-Streaming-*** For the life of me I can not figure out what the point of this movie is. The cinematography is gorgeous, and it has style, but no real narrative. It's 3 short films featuring the same character in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Something something death, something burgeoning sexuality yada yada yada.
10. The Belko Experiment (2016)-Streaming-***If you need catharsis after a rough day at the office, this is the film for you. So much about this movie makes no sense--why are so many Americans working in a business in Bogota, why did they not get the implants independently checked by an American doctor, and so on.
11. House of Wax (1953)-Streaming-***** Vincent Price is fantastic as the deranged sculptor who molds wax figures on the bodies of his victims. I'm still steamed my Blu-Ray won't play.

Oct. 4
12. Mad Monster Party? (1966)-DVD-** Some childhood memories are best left alone.
13. Monster House (2006)-DVD-****At first, I was a little dubious about watching this, but it turned out to be a terrific FTV. A house owned by an irascible old man turns out to be inhabited by a malevolent spirit that likes to eat people. The character animation isn't great, but the house itself is a masterpiece; a carpet as a tongue, windows for eyes , floorboards that turn into jagged teeth. Even though this is a kid's movie, I would not show this to younger children.

Oct. 5
14. The Werewolf (1956)-Streaming-** Being the 1950s, this movie has what the trailer calls an "Atom Age Werewolf!"; instead of being triggered by an ancient curse or a bite, this poor schmuck was transformed by a pair of scientists who wanted to create a lifeform that could survive nuclear war. Also because it was the 1950s, there's no gore. Instead, you get sage-looking men standing over an unseen corpse and saying, "only an animal could tear out a man's throat like that." When we do eventually see the werewolf in full wolfiness, the makeup is pretty good.
15. Last Shift (2014)-Streaming-**** I picked this at random on Netflix ans was pleasantly surprised by its quality, despite a low budget. A rookie cop on her first shift finds herself under siege by the spirits of Satanic cult members. It's like an extended Masters of Horror episode that plays like a cross between Assault on Precinct 13 and Session 9.
16. Bad Moon (1996)-Streaming-**** Great subset pick! I really enjoyed this werewolf flick with the always fun Michael Pare.

Oct. 6
17. Jinn (2014)-Streaming-*** A man discovering that he is the legatee of an hereditary vendetta by a jinn. Nothing here is new--ancient curses, madmen who are more then they appear, a sacred weapon and the hero is, of course, The Chosen One. Still, impressive production values, and some good action scenes.
18. Candyman (1992)-DVD-**** An enduring horror classic with a haunting Philip Glass score and racial themes that are even more acute in an age when America has been overrun by white supremacists.

Oct. 7
19. The Void (2016)-Streaming-***** You don't often find terrific Lovecraftian horror, but this is a genuinely scary movie.
20. Hellraiser (1987)-DVD-***** When I saw this in the theater 30 years ago, i was knocked out, and it still works for me today. Christopher Young's Gothic horror scare adds to the atmosphere.
21. Hellraiser II (1988)-DVD-*** A step down from the original but still worth watching.

Oct. 8
22. Contracted (2013)-TV-* What a disappointment. A young woman is roofied and raped at a party and then begins to disintegrate. We are supposed to see the lead character as a victim, but she was whiny and unpleasant, so I really couldn't identify with her as she begins to transform, and the movie ends when it finally starts getting interesting.
23. I Survived a Zombie Holocaust (2014)-TV-**** A New Zealand film crew making a zombie film finds itself in the center of a real zombie apocalypse. While this comedy/horror hybrid is nowhere near as good as Shaun of the Dead, it definitely kept my interest--and the muscle-bound action hero's nude scene was excellent..
24. Train to Busan (2016)-Blu-Ray-*****
This is tied with The Witch as my favorite FTV from last year. Train to Busan is a white-knuckled thrill ride with an emotional core story about a workaholic father trying to reconnect with and protect his young daughter from carnivorous zombies. I bought it at Best Buy today, even though it's on Netflix.
25. The Girl With All the Gifts (2016)-Blu-Ray-*****
A novel take on the zombie theme, the human race has been nearly wiped out by a fungal infection that turns people into what the movie calls "hungries," but children born with the infection retain their intelligence and ability to function as humans despite having the urge to eat people. This is a beautiful, delicate film about love, and I expect Sennia Nanua, who plays the lead character, is going to become a major star.

Oct. 9
26. Humanoids from the Deep (1980)-Streaming-*** Directed by Barbara Peeters. Fish hyped up on growth hormones turn into monsters that eat dogs and then humans. Vic Morrow plays a racist fisherman who blames a First Nations rival for the killings, and Doug McClure plays his standard good guy role. Overall, it's an OK film, but just didn't grab me.
27. Raw (2016)-Streaming-** I feel a bit cheated. Raw was supposed to be a shocker that makes its audience throw up from fear, but it's just a run-of-the-mill story about a veterinary student who discovers she has cannibalistic urges.
28. Child's Play 2 (1990)-TV-**** Terrific sequel. I have to wonder why Chucky continues to try to possess Andy's body when he could take over anyone he pleased. Why not go for a grown man instead of a child? Or if it has to be a child, Chucky could have just grabbed anyone with much less fuss.

Oct. 10
29. Yongary (1967)-Streaming-* The brutal reign of South Korean dictator Park Chung-Hee was paradoxically responsible for the nation's economic development into a world power, but it also sponsored this truly awful Godzilla knock-off.
30. Berserk (1967)-DVD-*** A camp classic that stars Joan Crawford in her Norma Desmond fright mask makeup period as a ringmaster/ proprietor of a seedy circus wandering Britain's provinces whose acts keep getting murdered. Enter Ty Hardin as the hunky trapeze artist who is Crawford's love interest, despite being half her age, and Judy Geeson as Crawford's delinquent daughter.
31. Highway to Hell (1991)-Blu-Ray-**** I bought this during the last Kino sale and it's a satisfying watch, despite its flaws. The production values resemble the end product of somebody saying "hey kids, let's put on a show", and there are several celebrity cameos including Ben Stiller and a ridiculously young Gilbert Gottfried as Hitler.

Oct. 11
32. The Screaming Skull (1967)-Streaming-* Incredibly tedious mashup of Rebecca and Gaslight
33. The Skull (1965)-Blu-Ray-*** Peter Cushing plays an antiques collector who acquires the skull of the Marquis de Sade and hilarity ensues. The screenwriter didn't do his homework on de Sade's life or work; here he is portrayed as an occultist who wrote about black magic and whose skull exerts an evil influence on its possessor.

Oct. 12
34. The Awakening (1980)-TV-** Charlton Heston is an Egyptologist who excavates a lost tomb holding the mummy of Queen Kara, a sorceress, and at the same instant his newborn daughter draws her first breath. Fast forward 18 years, and the spirit of the dead Queen is possessing the young girl and things get a little incesty with Heston who is obsessed by his discovery. The movie has few scares and isn't interesting except for the gorgeous location filming in Egypt.
35. Bubba Ho Tep (2002)-DVD-**** Bruce Campbell brings his special charm to every role he plays, and here is Elvis, wizened and at the end of his road in a Texas nursing home. Together with Ossie Davis, who might be JFK, he fights a mummy that is killing the other nursing home residents. This movie just gets everything right.

Oct. 13
36. Friday the 13th (1980)-TV-** Nearly 40 years on, Ft13 isn't really shocking. There's no investment in the characters, so we don't feel anything when Mrs Voorhees kills them. The practical effects still look fantastic.
37. Friday the 13th Part II (1981)-TV-*** Slightly more fun than the first one, but none of the characters are interesting or memorable.
38. The Black Cat (1934)-Streaming-***** Karloff and Lugosi created the roles of Dracula and Frankenstein's Monster, but in my opinion they were never better than their performances as deadly enemies in The Black Cat. Lugosi plays a doctor made bitter and emotionally fragile by his experiences as a POW in WWI when he was betrayed by his commanding officer, played by Boris Karloff, now an architect who has married and killed Lugosi's wife and plans the same fate for his daughter. Edgar J Ulmer's direction creates a creepy and darkly erotic atmosphere, in which Lugosi and Karloff use a young newlywed couple as pawns in their game of vengeance.

Oct. 14
39. Child's Play 3 (1991)-TV-**** Although this slapdash sequel is not altogether satisfying, Brad Dourif's vocal work always makes Chucky worth watching. This time he's searching for a new body at a military school where poor Andy has to save a fellow cadet from Chucky's "Hide the Soul" game.
40. Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)-Blu-Ray-***** Terrific FTV. I haven't yet watched the first film, so the after the credits scene was lost on me, but this movie was seriously creepy, and Henry Thomas grew up hot.
41. Dawn of the Dead (1978)-DVD-**** RIP George Romero. DotD is an epic zombie film that has stood the test of time. Yes, the makeup looks simplistic now, but Romero understood that the real threat to human survival isn't the zombies, but other people. I'm glad I bought the Anchor Bay Ultimate Edition way back when because the movie isn't available for purchase or rental anywhere now.
42. One Dark Night (1982)-Streaming-* It was a real struggle to stick with this dull flick about sorority girls staging an initiation in a mausoleum where they raise a psychic who devours human energy. Painfully boring until the last 20 minutes when it finally started getting scary.

Oct. 15
43. The Uncanny (1977)-Streaming-**** Ailurophobes beware! Peter Cushing plays an author who pitches a book proposal about feline evil to a publisher (Ray Milland) by telling him three tales of cats wreaking vengeance upon miscreants. I really enjoy these British anthology flicks because the level of acting and atmosphere is so much higher than American films.
44. Tales of Halloween (2015)-Streaming-**** Excellent Halloween-themed anthology. The stories are short enough that none of them last too long, and there's a suitable amount of gore and blood.

Oct. 16
45. Prophecy (1979)-Streaming-**** I saw this in the theater back when it was first released, and the scary, wet mutant bear still scares me. Wisely, the film makers don't show the killer monster bear too much, but just enough for its appearance to be shocking. This movie is a genuine 70s time capsule, incorporating abortion, pollution, and Native American rights, which were hot topics 40 years ago. Robert Foxworth plays an idealistic doctor who takes a job in Maine to help Native Americans whose rights have been tramples by a lumber company that has been pouring deadly chemicals into the water and discovers the horrific mutagenic effects of mercury poisoning on the local wildlife. It's odd to recall how the EPA changed America for the better, and how far we have reversed our progress of 40 years in the last 9 months.

Oct. 17
46. Gargoyles (1972)-Streaming-**** Terrific made-for-TV movie about an anthropologist and his daughter being chased by gargoyles who want to keep theri existence secret.
47. The Evil (1978)-Streaming-*** The movie's set-up starts out great-a psychiatrist and some friends set out to remodel a house he just purchased, and scary things start happening--but the end is completely WTF--Victor Buono as the Devil?
48. The Devil's Bride (1968)-TV-**** One of my favorite Hammer films, The Devil's Bride reminds me somewhat of Curse of the Demon, with an evil sorcerer using black magic against a group of friends in a battle of good vs. evil. If Warner releases another Hammer horror set on Blu-Ray, I hope they include this.

Oct. 18
49. The Stranger Within (1974)-DVD-**** The ABC Movie of the Week produced some memorably scary flicks. Barbara Eden plays a woman who becomes pregnant although her husband has had a vasectomy. She develops cravings for coffee, salt and raw meat and starts reading books with her hands. Terrific movie with a downer ending typical for the 70s.
50. Dawn of the Dead (2004)-Blu-Ray-*** The first 8 minutes are gangbusters-zombie apocalypse on steroids. The screenplay makes the mistake of adding too many characters so that we don't get to know them well enough to mourn them when they get eaten. The zombie pregnancy would have worked better if they had been willing to go for the gore, and maybe not show the baby because it looks ridiculous.
51. The Asphyx (1972)-Blu-Ray-***** Oscar Wilde wrote, "In this world there are only two tragedies. One is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it." In this Hammeresque film, a Victorian scientist discovers a spirit called an "asphyx" that comes to people at the time of their death. He finds that he can achieve immortality by imprisoning his asphyx, but things go horribly wrong. Everything in this movie works-the script, the direction, the acting. This is a top-notch horror film, and I'm surprised it isn't better known.
52. Needful Things (1993)-Blu-Ray-***** Despite its negative ratings from critics, Needful Things is IMO one of the more successful Stephen King adaptations. Great cast and a terrific story, although not as dark as the novel.

Oct. 19
53. A Ghost Story (2016)-Streaming-**** Not as much a horror film as a profound study of depression and grief.
54. The Other Side of the Door (2016)-TV-**** An expat American mom in India loses her son in an accident. Her housekeeper tells her about a deserted temple in a forest where she can bring back her son to say goodbye, but under no circumstances can she open the temple door to let him in. Hilarity ensues.
55. Repo the Genetic Opera (2008)-Blu-Ray-***** I absolutely love this rock and roll fable.

Oct. 20
56. Hunted (2015)-Streaming-** Emo vampire boy tries to make a normal life for himself. Really didn't care for this one.
57. The Monster Project (2016)-Streaming-**** A couple of amateur film makers advertise for real monsters to appear in a film. Things go badly.

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



Orange Title - Denotes first-time-ever viewing

Caution: Spoilers may follow!

Last year's tally: 52 films; 31 first-time viewings

This year's goals: 45 films; 25 first-time viewings; attempt to complete Theme Nights and Subset lists, and take a shot at the Checklist



9/30/2017

Note: This film is not counted in my totals, as it was watched outside the actual month of October. I consider it to be a sort of pre-Challenge warm up.

XX Cronos (1993) (DVD) - I first watched Cronos for the OHMC six years ago, and here's some of what I had to say about it then: "While it's not my favorite of his [del Toro's] films (that title would go to The Devil's Backbone), Cronos is still an incredibly rich viewing experience. A singular take on immortality, the film is about a contraption (which is a little smaller than an adult's fist) called The Cronos Device. Invented by an alchemist in the 1500s, the device is found by an antique dealer, who happens to discover it hidden in the base of a statue that he's acquired. Unsure of what it is at first, he soon finds out that it has some very special powers, and that someone else wants it very, very badly...so badly that they would kill for it. To give away any more of the plot would be a huge disservice to first-time viewers. Cronos is a multiple award winner, even taking home a handful of Ariel Awards (Mexico's answer to the Academy Awards) the year it came out. It probably requires multiple viewings to catch everything that del Toro has loaded it with (and to figure out exactly what the ending means). Worth going out of your way to see." On second viewing, I still found it to be an interesting film, but I'm not quite as enamored of it as I once was...but I can say the same thing for pretty much all of del Toro's films. This time around, I found myself responding most to the fable-like aspects of the tale, although I still can't figure out exactly what del Toro's views on the pursuit of immortality are. Maybe a third viewing will make them more clear to me.


10/1/2017

1. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) (DVD) - I saw this in the theater on opening weekend in 1986, and I and the friend that I went with thought that it was probably just about the best sequel that Tobe Hooper could have made. That's not to say that we thought that it was flawless, but how can a film like the first be topped? In all actuality (and as years and years of sequels, remakes, etc. have proven), it can't. So the filmmakers had to find a different direction to go in, and this time around, they amped up the humor and the gore. I watched this film for my first OHMC back in 2010, and here's part of what I had to say about it then: "Here are a few things I love about this movie: Bill Moseley's exaltant cry of 'Humble Pie!' when raiding the record vault; Jim Siedow's very creative cursing; and, most especially, the scene when Stretch finds L.G. in the Sawyer family's underground lair. To me, that scene DEFINES 'over the top.'" This time around, I think that I appreciated it more than ever before, especially Caroline Williams's performance as Stretch. I don't know why she never made it any bigger than she did; still, she's kept relatively busy in the intervening years (and we'll see her again this month in another subset film, so there's that). I highly recommend watching the making-of documentary on the Blu-ray and DVD, It Runs in the Family; it's absolutely fascinating. Lastly, I doubly-love that the movie poster for TCM2 is a direct steal from The Breakfast Club; that was a stroke of genius.


10/2/2017

2. C.H.U.D. (1984) (DVD) - It's been over thirty years since I first saw C.H.U.D.--I don't think that it played theatrically in my town, so I had to rent the VHS when the tape was first released. I didn't particularly like it then; I don't recall the exact reasons, but they probably had to do with there being so little monster action in the film. So, as is often the case with subset films that I've seen before, I found myself dreading rewatching the film. Sometimes, I'll find a newfound appreciation for films that I originally didn't like, but most of the time, I find that I still don't like the films. In this case, I liked the film even less this time around. For me, the film has multiple problems, including the aforementioned lack of monster action, a really awful lead actor, grimy cinematography, and a script that fails to generate any tension whatsover. The cast (except for the lead actor) is game, but they're given one-note characters to play. While I was watching it this time, it struck me that C.H.U.D. had a set-up that was similar to those of some of the films of Larry Cohen, but then I started thinking about how much better the film would have been if Cohen had indeed had a hand in it. For me, C.H.U.D.'s a dud.


10/3/2017

3. Amer (2009) (Streaming--Google Drive [Alyxstarr's link]) - Strange, nearly dialogue-less film tells the "story" of a woman, Ana, in three acts. In the first act, Ana is a little girl who steals a watch from her dead grandfather, runs in terror from an elderly, veiled servant, and watches her parents have sex. In Act II, Ana is a teenager who walks to the neighboring village with her mother and runs afoul of a gang of bikers while her mother is getting her hair done. In the last act, Ana, now an adult, returns home via a sensual taxi ride and finds herself being stalked by strangers. If that synopsis makes little sense, then you've probably got a good idea of what watching Amer feels like. A friend of mine has told me several times that I have a pretty high tolerance for pretentiousness, but even my patience was taxed by this film. While the film looks incredible, its method of storytelling (if that's even the right word) is elliptical at best. There's no linear plot, as far as I could ascertain. The film gives off a giallo vibe, but there's no plot to untangle, no mystery for the audience to solve. The Italian influence continues with the music chosen for the film, as all of it comes from various Italian films of the 1960s and '70s. The first act of the film was the only one that really held my interest, as it seems to pay homage to Suspiria, with its use of oversaturated, unnatural colors. I can't say that I liked the film, but, overall, I feel that it's a film worth seeing once; at the very least, it's a piece of pretty impressive eye candy.


10/4/2017

4. Mad Monster Party? (1967) (Blu-ray) - The only other time that I've watched this film in its entirety before tonight was when I was 9 or 10 years old. It came on the late movie one Saturday night, and I stayed up all by myself to watch it. I adored it, and when it was over I was in a great mood...until the station signed off the air with pictures of the ten most-wanted criminals. After I turned off the TV, I just knew at least one, and probably more, of those ten guys were lurking around my backyard, so I didn't sleep too well that night. What's funny about that now is that, in the intervening years between that night and now, I've attempted to watch Mad Monster Party? several times, and I've always fallen asleep while watching it. While I'm a huge fan of Rankin/Bass and their various Christmas specials, Mad Monster Party? doesn't engender the love in me that their other productions do. I can't fault the character design or the animation; the technical aspects of the film are up to R/B's usual standards. No, the problem with the film is its script. There's just not enough story there to sustain a 95-minute feature, and most of the songs are forgettable as well. I guess that I'll stick with Rudolph from now on when I need a Rankin/Bass fix.


10/5/2017

5. Bad Moon (1996) (Streaming--Shout Factory TV) - I had a lot of fun with this movie, directed by Eric Red and based on the book Thor by Wayne Smith. In it, a guy moves to be near his sister and her son, but (as he's a werewolf) things don't really work out for the family. The sister and nephew are clueless that he's dangerous, but their dog Thor knows and protects his family the best that he can. This lean little film, which doesn't waste any time with anything not necessary to the plot, clocks in at only 80 minutes.

6. Grindhouse (2007) (Blu-ray) - It's a shame that this film underperformed at the box office, because it's a whole lot of fun, and I really enjoyed the format of it--it's a throwback to the days when prepackaged double-features played in theaters all across the country. Making it even better are the between-features stuff, such as ads for "local" restaurants, "Previews of Coming Attractions" and "Our Feature Presentation" announcements, and fake trailers (the best of which is Edgar Wright's "Don't"). I'm ready for someone to try doing something like this again.


10/6/2017

7. Candyman (1992) (DVD) - Virginia Madsen plays a graduate student doing research into urban legends. While conducting an interview, she hears the story of Candyman and sets out to try to find the origins of the tale. She ends up finding a lot more than she bargained for. I saw this film when it first came out, and I really didn't like it...so I was, as is often the case when I rewatch films that I didn't originally care for, not really relishing the idea of slogging through it again. However, this time around, Candyman turned out to be a pleasant surprise. I'd forgotten most of the plot, so it was almost as if I were seeing it for the first time. Philip Glass's score adds to the film's effectiveness immeasurably.

8. House of Dracula (1945) (Blu-ray) - Universal's last attempt at milking some scares from their stable of popular monsters before Abbott and Costello were let loose upon them, House of Dracula is fairly silly stuff. Onslow Stevens plays a doctor who, defying all odds of coincidence, winds up treating Dracula for his vampirism and the Wolfman for his lycanthropy at the same time. And, just because it seems to be his destiny, he finds the severely-weakened Frankenstein monster in the caves beneath his castle, so he starts toying with the idea of trying to fix HIM up. He's also got an assistant who's a hunchback, and because of some double-crossing by Dracula, the doctor himself starts having Jekyll-and-Hyde episodes nightly, wherein he turns evil for a few hours. Yeah, it's as dumb as it sounds, but it's mindless fun if you're in the right frame of mind.


10/7/2017

9. The Void (2016) (Streaming--Netflix) - As I think that I've mentioned several times in these threads throughout the years, I'm not a fan of H. P. Lovecraft. Several of my friends think that's total heresy, and it may be, but I just don't like his whole Cthulhu mythos thing. Unfortunately for me, The Void owes a huge debt to Lovecraft. Up until the halfway point, though, I was quite enjoying the film. It has several plot devices that I'm quite fond of, including taking place in an isolated setting and pitting a small group of survivors against an unexplained threat. It even has Ellen Wong in the cast, and I've had a celebrity crush on her ever since Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. So I was really, really enjoying the film...and then, the characters went into the basement of the hospital. Once that happened, the pacing sputtered and then died, and then the whole Lovecraft thing kicked into hyperdrive. I have to give the filmmakers a lot of credit for working on what was probably a fairly limited budget (I mean, the film was funded through an Indygogo campaign), but in the end, it just really didn't appeal to me. I'll admit to finding the final shot intriguing, though. If you like Lovecraft and/or sci-fi, you'll probably enjoy this film; if not, you may find it best to avoid The Void.

10. Fading of the Cries (2008) (DVD) - Perfectly awful film has something to do with a necromancer (played by a slumming-lower-than-usual Brad Dourif) who needs a jewel to be able to bring back his wife from the dead...yet he's dead, too, so I think that he's just yanking everybody's chain. Said jewel is in the hands (well, to be exact, on a chain around the neck) of a teenage girl, whose uncle gave it to her when she was a child. The uncle just so happened to find it in a house that he had bought, and, as luck would have it, the house had once belonged to the necromancer. There's also a guy who wields a sword (who ALSO lived in that same house that the uncle and the necromancer lived in) who seems to know what's going on when the town is suddenly filled with...what? Demons? Zombies? Who knows? Brad Dourif gives it his best, but the guy that carries the sword seems to be near catatonia all the way through the film. He makes Keanu Reeves look like Lawrence Olivier. Did I mention how awful this film is?

11. Train to Busan (2016) (Streaming--Amazon Prime) - This was my second time to see Train to Busan, and I found myself just as caught up in the events of the film this time as I did when I first saw it back in March. It's the most kinetic horror movie that I've seen in a while--although I enjoy a slow-burn film such as It Follows or The Innkeepers, it's nice to see something every once in a while that MOVES. Not only does it move, it also isn't afraid to hit the viewer right in the feels. All of the actors are wonderful, as is the score. I could keep piling superlatives on here, but you probably understand by now that I really like this film. Oh, just one more thing: it's very subtle, but the film DOES give a reason for the zombie outbreak...and it's one that's both plausible and unique, as far as I know.


10/9/2017

12. Raw (2016) (Streaming--Netflix) - I'd been looking forward to seeing this since I first heard about it several months ago, and now that I've seen it...I don't know what to think about it. The plot concerns a girl, Justine, who is a freshman at a veterinary medicine college. She and her family have always been strict vegetarians, but as part of a hazing ritual she eats a raw rabbit kidney, and she starts craving meat. Complications ensue. On the one hand, it's a very well-made film, with good performances, gorgeous cinematography, and appropriately icky gore. On the other hand, it seems to be an allegory about something (and I've thought and thought about what that something could be, and I haven't come up with anything really concrete yet). I also have some major issues with the end of the film--it reminded me of the ending of The Lost Boys, when Barnard Hughes says, "One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach; all the damn vampires!" I've always hated that line, because it shows that most, if not all, of what went before in the movie could have been prevented if he'd just told his grandsons to watch out for the vampires. The same goes for Raw and its last few lines (and I won't spoil it for those who might be reading this and haven't seen the film yet). Overall, I liked the film, but I feel that a second viewing is going to be necessary in order for me to figure out what the director was really trying to say with it.

13. Yongary, Monster from the Deep (1967) (DVD) - Sometimes, all I need to make me happy is to see a giant reptile stomping through an Asian metropolis (with this summer's bizarro Colossal being a notable exception). So, yeah, I loved Yongary. It was released directly to TV as part of a movie package from AIP, but somehow I missed ever seeing it on TV. It was also released as a Super 8 cutdown from Ken Films; I wanted it REALLY badly when I was a kid, but it never showed up in my local K-Mart. The things that I like about it: 1) Although the title of the movie makes it sound like Yongary came from the ocean, he actually comes up from underground. 2) There's a brief but really trippy scene set in a dance club that seems like it belongs in a different film. 3) Yongary dances. I can watch that scene over and over again. 4) Yongary's horn lights up sometimes. 5) I particularly like that, when Yongary is breathing fire, you can plainly see the metal pipe in his mouth that accomplishes that effect. Ponder this: Yongary comes up from underground to eat gasoline and oil, yet the world's reserves of crude oil are...underground. It seems to me that as long as he'd stayed underground, he'd have all the food he'd ever want. But if he'd stayed underground, then he wouldn't have gotten to dance as much. Yeah, Yongary is quite plainly a Godzilla rip-off, but that doesn't diminish my love for him in any way. In fact, as far as kaiju go, Yongary's kind of like that mixed-breed puppy at the pound that you take home for his personality instead of for his looks. I found Yongary to be pure, childish fun.


10/11/2017

14. The Screaming Skull (1958) (Streaming--Amazon Prime) - A new bride finds herself being haunted by the ghost of her husband's first wife. This programmer from AIP breaks no new ground, but it does an acceptable job of conjuring up a few chills, especially if it's watched late into the night on the biggest screen available. The plot is reminiscent of Rebecca, but the resemblance between the two films ends there. As a kid, I had an overwhelming fear of skulls; I can only imagine what kind of a whammy this would have put on me if I'd seen it on the late movie! On a side note, Ken Films, as they did with Yongary, released The Screaming Skull as a Super 8 cutdown. I really wanted a copy of it when it was released in the late '70s, but I never got one. I'm still a little sore about it.


10/12/2017

15. Bubba Ho-Tep (2002) (DVD) - As much as I love Don Coscarelli, as much as I love Bruce Campbell, and as much as I love Joe R. Lansdale, I've never gotten around to watching Bubba Ho-Tep, even though it's been sitting on my shelf for probably twelve or thirteen years. Once again, I'm glad that the Challenge forced me to dig out another film that I should have already watched. In this one, Elvis is living out his days in a Texas retirement home (along with John F. Kennedy--don't ask, just watch the movie) when a soul-sucking mummy starts picking off the residents. It's up to the former King of Rock and Roll and the former President to vanquish the mummy. This is, so far, my favorite first-time watch of this year's Challenge--it's funny, it's exciting, and it's oh-so-weird. Whatever happened to the sequel that was promised in the closing credits--Bubba Nosferatu?


10/13/2017

16. Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981) (Blu-ray) - As far as sequels to Friday the 13th go, I've always found this one to be rather disappointing. When I saw it on its initial release (twice in a hard-top theater and twice at the drive-in), I found its lack of gore, due to pre-release cuts imposed by the MPAA, to be a major buzz-killer. I also have issues with the film's logic--exactly how DID Jason find Alice?--and the timeline seems awfully muddled. The first time that I saw it, I took a friend of mine to see it. Once the killing began in earnest, she started making this high-pitched keening noise (which I find impossible to put into a print equivalent). She was hunkered down in her seat, hands up to her mouth, making this weird noise. I leaned over and asked her, "Are you okay?" She stopped the keening and said, quite chirpily if the truth be told, "Yeah, I'm fine!" And then she went back to making the noise. She kept at it, too, and after a few seconds a guy in the row in front of us turned around and asked her, "Lady, are you okay?" She replied that she was fine, he turned back around, and she started up again. She didn't stop until the film was over. Needless to say, I never asked her to another horror film again.

17. Black Friday (1940) (DVD) - Okay science-fiction-y thriller stars Boris Karloff as a doctor who saves his professor friend's life by transplanting part of a criminal's brain into him. He probably would have let them both die, but Karloff found out that the criminal had stolen $500,000...and if his friend with the criminal's mind could lead him to it, he could fund a new laboratory. Bela Lugosi shows up a few times as a criminal crony of the dead guy, but the real star of the show is Stanley Ridges, who plays both the criminal and the professor. It took me a while to figure out that the same actor was playing them both; it's a great performance. Oh, and it fits today's theme too, as the film begins on Friday the 13th--the "Black Friday" of the title. It's not very horrific, but it's fairly fun if you've got an hour and some change to kill.

18. The Skull (1965) (DVD) - Peter Cushing stars as a collector of occult artifacts who comes into the possession of the skull of the Marquis de Sade, with "possession" being the key word here. The film's okay, and Christopher Lee shows up as a rival collector, but right when the film should be kicking into high gear, it slows to a crawl and never recovers. The visible guy wires that help the skull float around Cushing's house are a major distraction.


10/14/2017

19. One Dark Night (1982) (Streaming--YouTube) - A girl who wants to be in the smallest high-school girl gang in history has to spend the night in a mausoleum as her final rite of initiation. As luck would have it, a guy renowned for his psychic powers had been interred there that very day, and he's not quite ready to rest in peace yet. I happened to catch One Dark Night theatrically when it was released in 1983, and, while it didn't knock my socks off, I found it to be reasonably enjoyable. Fast-forward to tonight, and my feelings haven't changed in 34 years. It's an okay way to spend an hour and a half, but it never really builds up much of a head of steam. Adam West shows up to lend support, and Elizabeth Daily, Dottie from Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, appears as one-third of the girl gang. Meg Tilly went on to be a fairly high-profile actress until she dropped out of the business for fifteen years to raise her family.

20. Piranha 3D (2010) (Blu-ray 3D) - This was my second time to watch Piranha 3D, but my first to watch it in 3D. The 3D really didn't add all that much to the film; there were very few cool pop-out moments. Luckily, the film doesn't need 3D, really, because it's got 3B--Joe Bob Briggs's three essential ingredients for drive-in movies: blood, beasts, and boobs. And boy, does it ever have them! This could be the ultimate exploitation film. The plot, in a nutshell: An earthquake opens a passage from an underground lake to a lake above it, unleashing thousands of prehistoric piranha to munch on the mass of humanity that has descended on the lake for Spring Break. That's really all you need to know. I think it's a stone-cold blast; your mileage may vary, depending on your tolerance for carnality and carnage.


10/15/2017

21. Tales of Halloween (2015) (Streaming--Netflix) - What hath YouTube wrought? A horror anthology for those with the attention span of a gnat, Tales of Halloween is made up of ten different segments, each helmed by a different director, but all supposedly taking place in the same town on one Halloween night. With each segment running an average of nine minutes, there's not a lot of time that the filmmakers can waste on such minor details as pacing, characterization, or atmosphere. Instead, we get the horror film equivalent of a string of jokes--just enough exposition is given to set up each segment's punchline. Of the ten vignettes, I thought that only one was really good, but I found another four to be at least tolerable. Of course, that leaves five that were dead weight (heh heh). Even though the film's black little heart was in the right place, I really can't recommend the film overall. However, if you get the chance to catch the "Grim Grinning Ghost" segment, don't pass it up--it's a treat.

22. Tales of Terror (1962) (Blu-ray) - This, the third AIP Poe film directed by Roger Corman, written by Richard Matheson, and starring Vincent Price, is notable for a few things. It's Corman's only anthology film as a director; it brought both Basil Rathbone and Peter Lorre into the AIP fold, where they remained until their deaths; and Richard Matheson's script allows Price and Lorre to flex their comedic muscles a bit, which led to two more films starring the two of them which emphasized laughs over scares, The Raven and The Comedy of Terrors. In this one, Matheson adapts Poe's "Morella," "The Black Cat," and "The Case of M. Valdemar" (in that order) with varying levels of success. All of the stories are at least interesting, but the first one, upon reflection, really doesn't make a lot of sense. The second tale, which also incorporates plot elements from Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado," is probably the most fun of the three, and the last one is the creepiest. If you like old-school horror films, you'll probably find Tales of Terror to be a satisfying way to spend ninety minutes.


10/16/2017

23. Martyrs (2008) (DVD) - This transgressive horror film generated a great deal of discussion when it was released nine years ago due to its unrelenting sadism and graphic bloodletting. A friend of mine bought it due to its reputation, but when he watched it, he hated it--loathed it, in fact. It wasn't the unrelieved nihilism that disgusted him about the film; it was the fact that the film used its realistic makeup effects to try to hide the pretension that was at its core. He has told me several times over the years that it's one of the films that he hates the most. He never recommended that I see it, but he asked that if I ever got the urge to see it, to let him know what I thought about it. So now I've seen it, and I see his point to a certain extent. For me, the film joins others of its ilk like Funny Games, Human Pork Chop, and The Girl Next Door in making the viewer question his or her relationship to horror films. I've loved horror films since I was a kid, but after watching Martyrs, I (thankfully briefly) thought that perhaps it's time to give them up. I watch horror films for the thrill--for the roller-coaster aspect of the experience of being pleasantly frightened. I found nothing whatsoever pleasant about this film. The realism that it exhibited in depicting its atrocities left no room for entertainment; its goal seems to be to erase any hope in the goodness of the human race. Admittedly, the film HAD to be graphic to achieve its intended effect (just like The Exorcist--William Peter Blatty once wrote that The Exorcist wouldn't have worked as a novel if he'd simply written "And then Regan did some very naughty things"), but to what purpose? At least Blatty had some points about faith and redemption that he wanted to make, but Martyrs doesn't seem to have any point to make except that people are bad. It's an effective film, but I'll never watch it again.


10/17/2017

24. Pin (1988) (Streaming--YouTube) - Pin is another one of those films that I'd heard good things about over the years but had never taken the time to track down and watch. Now that I've finally seen it, I have to admit to being let down quite a bit. This tale of two siblings whose best friend is an anatomical medical dummy was well-made, but it never really gets out of first gear.


10/18/2017

25. Seeding of a Ghost [Zhong gui] (1983) (Streaming--Google Drive [Alyxstarr's link]) - Just when I thought that I'd seen everything, along comes a Hong Kong film to show me that I've barely scratched the surface. Due to a curse being put on her husband and his family by a sorcerer, a taxi driver's wife has an affair with a married gambler, then gets raped and killed by a couple of young punks. The husband goes back to the same sorcerer and blackmails him into helping get revenge for the wife's death. Once they dig up the wife's corpse, the film goes totally bonkers. It's not a good film by any stretch of the imagination, but you sort of have to give Seeding of a Ghost at least some grudging respect for combining elements of, among many other films, Alien, John Carpenter's The Thing, The Exorcist, and Mr. Vampire. It also has lots of nudity, ghost sex, mahjong, and sodomy by giant matchstick. It's a must-see film, obviously.


10/19/2017

26. Under the Shadow (2016) (Streaming--Netflix) - Finally! This is the first film that I've watched for this year's Challenge that actually scared me. As I've written in my comments for films seen in previous Challenges, I know a film is working if it gives me gooseflesh. Under the Shadow sent a minor ripple through me about halfway through the film, so I was pretty happy...but then later I got a full-body skin-crawl from it. I hate that most American horror films have pretty much given up on trying to be scary; instead, they tend to use jump scares to goose the audience, but they're never really frightening. As I think Mr. Cellophane wrote a few years back, most American horror films should really be called "startle" films. Thank goodness that the rest of the world hasn't jumped on that bandwagon yet. Under the Shadow is a film that those who love actual horror films (as opposed to those to who think that dreck like The People Under the Stairs is a good horror film) should seek out and watch as soon as possible.
