***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.

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.

__________________
Past Horror Totals:
6th (2010) = 192 (114 FTVs) (Converted from Dumb-Counting Method Total of 184) The Checklist Completed!
7th (2011) = 156 (126 FTVs) (Only Watched Movies)
8th (2012) = 89 (89 FTVs) (Converted from Dumb-Counting Method Total of 80)
9th (2013) = 95 (64 FTVs) (Converted from Dumb-Counting Method Total of 73)
10th (2014) = 49 (29 FTVs) (Only Watched Movies)
11th (2015) = 150 (80 FTVs) (Only Watched Movies)
12th (2016) = 67 (41 FTVs)
I will be using the Easy Counting Method but at the end of the challenge I will break down the total into Movies, hour long TV shows and half hour TV shows for those still clinging onto "The Old Ways".

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.

October 7
7. It (2017) 6/10
Review/comments: Great child actors and drama stuff, but Pennywise was awful and none of the horror scenes were scary because he just seemed like a retarded clown.

October 9
8. Freaks of Nature (2015) 6/10
Review/comments: This was a really hit and miss horror comedy. Some of it was quite funny, but some stuff was painful ('brains' ugh).

October 10
9. Grace (2014) 4/10
Review/comments: Interesting style choice, but the character wasn't.

October 13
10. A Cure for Wellness (2016) 6/10
Review/comments: Looked good and Dane DeHaan is good, but the story was told in the most awful and stupid way. The major twist was something I thought was a minor plot point but it turned out we weren't supposed to know yet :/

October 17
11. Right at Your Door (2006) 6/10
Review/comments: Great until the wife turns up. The neighbour guy was pretty bad too. I liked that it stayed away from the real action and just inside. The wife was completely crazy and strange and the film really struggled in the middle. The ending was ok but it was too late.

October 21
12. Apocalyptic (2014) 4/10
Review/comments: Seemed to take itself too seriously and the production value wasn't really there which was too distracting. The characters were stupid and the cult and the prophecy were never really interesting. Has been done better before.

Beat my previous OHMC "High Score" (2007: 29).
Watch at least ONE Halloween or horror related movie/show/etc per day
in October.
Watch more movies that I've never seen before.
Be more involved enough in the discussion of movies/lists.

☼ = First Time Viewings

This is my 12th Horror Challenge.

Past Results:
2006: 23
2007: 29
2008: 13
2009: 26
2010: 17
2011: 14

2013: 9.75

October 1, 2017
1. [1 pt] Fright Night (1985, Blu-ray)
2. [1 pt] Cat's Eye (1985, Blu-ray)
I swapped out the pre-lit white bulbs with orange bulbs on my "Halloween" tree as I watched these.

October 2, 2017
3. [1 pt] Halloweentown (1998, DVD)
By request from my daughter... who went to bed halfway through the movie
4. [.25 pt] Tales From the Crypt (S1|E6): "Collection Completed"☼ (1989, DVD)
5. [.25 pt] Tales From the Darkside (S1|E3): "I'll Give You A Million"☼ (1984, DVD)
More "Halloween" tree bulb swapping. My thumb really hurts.

October 3, 2017
6. [1 pt] One Dark Night☼ (1982, Amazon Prime)
7. [.25 pt] The Simpsons (S2|E3): "Treehouse of Horror" (1990, On iPad ripped from DVD)

9. [.25 pt] The Simpsons (S4|E5): "Treehouse of Horror III" (1992, On iPad ripped from DVD)
Watched these all on a plane on the way to San Diego for work..

My gate as I arrived in San Diego

October 16, 2017
10. [1 pt] Return of the Living Dead III (1993, Blu-ray)
Turned on A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 The Dream Master (1988, Cable) about halfway in.

October 17, 2017
Shooting interviews and footage at Haunt 31, a home/yard haunt for Community Connection, a local show on Comcast CN100.

October 13, 2017
11. [1 pt] Friday the 13th Part 3 (1982, Blu-ray)
12. [1 pt] Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984, Blu-ray)

October 14, 2017
13. [1 pt] Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead (1994, Blu-ray)
14. [1 pt] Child's Play 2 (1990, Blu-ray)
I had hoped to do a Child's Play marathon ending with "Cult of Chucky," but it wasn't meant to be this season.

October 16, 2017
Stated watching Saw (2004, DVD). First death/trap in, daughter decides she can't handle anymore. We turn it off.

October 21, 2017
15. [1 pt] Midnight Syndicate LIVE (2017, Jack Aldrich Theatre, Cedar Point Halloweekends)
Midnight Syndicate returns to Cedar Point Halloweekends! As I said 3 years ago, it's not just two guys standing there playing their keyboards. There is an actual story line that accompanies their performance which includes video screens, live actors, a female vocalist, and an awesome set.

My kids and me in front of the set.

October 23, 2017
16. [.5 pt] The Walking Dead (S8|E1): "Mercy"☼ (2017, DVR: AMCHD)
17. [1 pt] Talking Dead (S8|E1): "Mercy"☼ (2017, DVR: AMCHD)

October 25, 2017
18. [.25 pt] The Goldbergs (S5|E5): "Jackie Likes Star Trek"☼ (2017, DVR: ABCHD)
19. [1 pt] The Video Dead☼ (1987, Blu-ray)
Wow! How did this get a (semi) wide release?

October 26, 2017
20. [1 pt] Hellraiser (1987, Blu-ray)
I had hoped to do a Hellraiser marathon, but it wasn't meant to be this season.

October 27, 2016
21. [0 pt] Our Redeemers Methodist Church Not-So-Scary-Haunted House (2017, Chicago Suburbs)
I played several characters in a haunted house throughout my high school and college years. Now it was my chance to actually put one together. No big frills or anything. For a budget of $0 and only a handful of helpers, I think it went pretty well. This was my second year running it.

Once again, I was too busy running it to take any pictures... except this one, taken just seconds before the lights came back on at the end of the night.

October 28, 2017
22. [1 pt] Tales of Halloween (2015, Blu-ray)

October 29, 2017
23. [1 pt] The Haunting (1963, Blu-ray)
24. [1 pt] Monsters Inc. (2001, FreeForm)
Yeah, I know it's a stretch but it has monsters, a little suspense, and well... it was on.
25. [1 pt] Red State☼ (2011, Starz On Demand)

October 30, 2017
26. [.25 pt] The Middle (S9|E4): "Halloween VIII: Orson Murder Mystery"☼ (2017, DVR: ABCHD)
27. [.25 pt] Fresh Off The Boat (S4|E4): "It's A Plastic Pumpkin, Louis Huang"☼ (2017, DVR: ABCHD)
28. [.25 pt] Modern Family (S9|E5): "It's The Great Pumpkin, Phil Dunphy"☼ (2017, DVR: ABCHD)
29. [.25 pt] Speechless (S2|E5): "N-I-- NIGHTMARE ON D-I-- DIMEO STREET"☼ (2017, DVR: ABCHD)
30. [0 pt] Yard Haunts! (2017, Chicago Suburbs)
The fam and I went driving around looking at yard haunts.
31. [1 pt] Zombieland (2009, Blu-ray)

October 31, 2017
32. [1 pt] WGN Morning News☼ (2017, WGNHD)
Watched on and off for about 4 hours so I entered it as a full entry. Count it as a WILD CARD if you wish.
33. [.5 pt] Rachael Ray (S12|E37): "Rachael's Halloween"☼ (2017, WGN)
Kind of got hooked after the news and didn't consider turning it off until 55 minutes in. LOL!
34. [1 pt] Halloween (1978, Blu-ray)
Stated watching Halloween II (1981, Blu-ray) but after about 30 minutes, fatigue just kicked in and I couldn't keep my eyes open.


So ends my Halloween viewing... with a half-assed attempt at Halloween II. I should have just ended strong with the original.





STATS:

Personal Goals Revisited:
Beat my previous OHMC "High Score" (2007: 29): NOPE
Watch at least ONE Halloween or horror related movie/show/etc per day in October: NOPE
Watch more movies that I've never seen before: NOPE
Be more involved enough in the discussion of movies/lists: NOPE. Actually, this was probably my worst year for discussion.
One goal that I had but forgot to post at the beginning of the challenge was to get through some of my "unwatched" pile. I had hoped to do some marathons to accomplish this (Hellraiser set, Phantasm set, Chucky set, etc) but I only got through about a movie in each set. Baby steps I guess.

Past Results:
2006: 23
2007: 29
2008: 13
2009: 26
2010: 17
2011: 14
2012: 28
2013: 9.75
2014: 22.75
2015: 20.75
2016: 22.5

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] - A little too strange for my liking

October 22
38. Kingdom Hospital - The Passion of Reverend Jimmy / Seizure Day (2004) ☼ [BD] -

October 23
39. Life (2017) [BD] - An enjoyable thrill ride, despite it not bringing anything new to the table.

October 24
40. Friday the 13th: The Series - The Quilt of Hathor / Quilt of Hathor: The Awakening (1988) ☼ [DVD] -

October 25
41. Friday the 13th: The Series - Double Exposure / The Pirate's Promise (1988) ☼ [DVD] -
42. The Killing Grounds (1997) ☼ [DVD] - Highly disappointed in this one, but for a reason you'd never guess. The story is found here.

October 26
43. The Birds (1963) [BD] - The first of many Hitchcock films I plan to see. This one is an enjoyable repeat viewing.
44. Jigsaw (2017) ☼ [Theater] - Enjoyable enough but I find it important not to think too much about how things fit together.

October 27
45. Diary of a Serial Killer (1998) ☼ [DVD] - Moving quickly to the discard pile. To be expected, when Gary Busey is the star.
46. Psycho (1960) [BD] - I've said it many times before. Perfectly cast and directed.

October 30
47. Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954) [BD] - One of my favorites of the classic set.
48. The Snowman (2017) ☼ [Theater] - A few decent moments, but it felt like it could have been so much better.

October 31
49. The Belko Experiment (2016) ☼ [DVD] - Interesting film, though I felt it couldn't keep with a strong start.
50. Friday the 13th: The Series - Badge of Honor / Kingdom Hospital: Shoulda Stayed in Bed (1988/2004) ☼ [DVD] -
51. Kingdom Hospital: Finale (2004) ☼ [DVD] -
52. Witch's Night Out (1978) ☼ [DVD] - Wild Card / Animated short from the 1970s was a little different
53. Casper (1950s) ☼ [DVD] - Wild Card / 3 Casper shorts from way back. Fun way to wrap things up

Summary - 35/53 entries were first time views; 19 BDs viewed; 5 Theatrical; 1 Streaming; 28 DVDs

List is FINAL - Challenge #11

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.

62. It's Alive ☠☠ / New / DVD / 91 min / 1974
Mostly deals with the father of the mutant baby and how his family is dealing with it. There are not many baby attacks and the movie is more of an emotional one.

Oct 21st
63. Cronos ☠☠☠☠ / New / Blu-Ray / 92 min / 1993
Really good take on vampires. I liked the toy box as a coffin.

64. Seed of Chucky ☠☠ / New / DVD / 87 min / 2004
This is a straight up comedy now, some of it was pretty good, but there were some pretty dated jokes. Still better than I had expected.

65. Necronomicon: Book of Dead ☠☠ / VOD / 96 min / 1993
3 stories and a wraparound tale of H.P. Lovecraft, who is reading the tales from the titular book. Story 1 is about a widower bringing his dead wife back only to find it is a monster. Story 2 is a scientist using spinal fluid to stay young. It also has a great melting man special effect. Story 3 follows a cop searching for her partner only to find aliens. I always found that last one to be rather disturbing. It's an ok anthology with some pretty good special effects. Couple of the scenes were out of order, not sure if it was just the version I watched or if it was a larger issue with the release.

66. Godzilla vs. Hedorah ☠☠ / New/ DVD / 85 min / 1996
One of the super kid friendly Godzillas as evidenced by a boy being the main human character and Godzilla flying around like a rocket with his atomic breath. Godzilla gets his ass kicked by Hedorah (an alien who feeds on pollution) who uses a fart based offense. He literally shits on Godzilla at one point. But the military and a professor figure out how to dry out Hedorah, and Big G brings home the W.

Oct 22nd
67. Hush ☠☠☠ / New / VOD / 82 min / 2016
Pretty good survival movie where a deaf/mute woman fights a killer.

68. Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III ☠☠½ / DVD / 85 min / 1990
This was enjoyable. A young couple and a survivalist go up against the new cannibal family.

Oct 23rd
69. The Dark Half ☠☠½ / New / Blu-Ray / 122 min / 1993
This was fine, it did drag a bit though. A writer's alter ego comes to life and starts killing people, so they settle things with a write off.

70. The Beast Within ☠☠ / New / Blu-Ray / 98 min / 1982
I thought this was going to be a werewolf movie. It was more of a bulbous alien-like movie. It begins and ends with rape, bulbous alien-like rape. The real action doesn't start until the transformation close to the end, a little more of that and this would have been better.

71. Messiah of Evil ☠☠☠ / New / Blu-Ray / 90 min / 1973
Unsettling movie. A young woman looks for her missing father in a small town whose residents are becoming zombie-like creatures.

Oct 24th
72. Phantom of the Paradise ☠☠☠½ / New / Blu-Ray / 92 min / 1974
This was a fun mashup of Phantom of the Opera and Faust.

73. The Undertaker ☠☠ / New / Blu-Ray / 89 min / 1988
It has problems but Joe Spinell is an interesting enough sex weirdo to carry it. Shame some of the negatives are missing, (a VHS source was used in parts) because the VS transfer was looked really good.

74. Dr. Giggles ☠☠ / DVD / 95 min / 1992
A decent slasher that slows down a bit once the main characters reach the fair. Where the hell did Dr. Giggles get those over sized medical instruments, lie the band-aid!?

75. Abominable ☠☠☠ / New / DVD / 94 min / 2006
An entertaining B-Movie. A Samsquanch terrorizes a couple of cabins, one full of hot babes, the other a dude in a wheelchair and an orderly or something.

Oct 25th
76. Hobgoblins / New / Blu-Ray / 88 min / 1988
The MST3K version is the way to watch this. The characters are all so weird in this, it's like an alien wrote this.

77. The Night Flier ☠☠½ / New / DVD / 94 min / 1997
I was expecting shlock-city but This was surprisingly good. Miguel Ferrer was good (as usual) he really plays the asshole character well. The woman reporter served no purpose other than the final headline.

78. The Dead Next Door ☠☠ / DVD / 78 min / 1989
The acting is pretty bad but no worse than the one liners. The people in this movie are incredibly careless around zombies. There is a zombie noise made by a woman that is fingernails on a chalkboard annoying that they constantly play whenever a zombie is on screen.

Oct 26th
79. Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter ☠☠☠ / DVD / 91 min / 1984
Really good entry, it's between this and Part 2 for the best.

80. The Devil's Hand ☠☠ / New / DVD / 71 min / 1961
A man gets bewitched by a devil worshiping cult. I might be being a little generous with 2 stars but there were things that I liked about this movie, if only a little bit more happened it could have been a lot better.

81. Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker ☠☠½ / DVD / 90 min / 1991
A toy maker named Joe Petto with a son named Pino... nope, don't get it. Anyway, a kid starts receiving killer gifts. We're also back to the Christmas theme after Part 4's detour. Neith Hunter and Clint Howard are also back as well. Fairly light on gore and scares but there is enough sex weirdness to keep it interesting. For the longest time I had this movie mixed up with Pinocchio's Revenge.

Oct 27th
82. Cathy's Curse ☠☠ / New / DVD / 82 min / 1977
Nothing special but there were some pretty funny moments. The movie really shines when Cathy is calling people whores. Unfortunately I watched the Mill Creek DVD, which looks like they recorded the movie off of a projector, no joke I swear I could hear the projector running in the background.

83. Buffy the Vampire Slayer ☠☠ / DVD / 86 min / 1992
Good, not great, but you can see the potential. The movie should have been longer, as is it's shallow and a little cheap.

84. The Rocky Horror Picture Show ☠☠☠☠☠ / Blu-Ray / 100 min / 1975
One of my favorites.

85. Best of the Worst: Halloween Spooktacular 2017 ☠☠☠☠☠ / New / VOD / 63 min / 2017 / Wildcard
A nice tradition.

Oct 28th
86. Re-Animator ☠☠☠½ / DVD / 86 min / 1985
Pretty good movie. The headless body steals the show.

87. Gutterballs ☠☠½ / DVD / 96 min / 2008
A sleazy gory slasher set in a bowlling alley. The dialog is kind of horrible, everyone is constantly swearing to the point of it being annoying.

88. Scream and Scream Again ☠☠☠½ / New / Blu-Ray / 96 min / 1970
3 converging stories centered around a vampire murderer. Some scenes went on for too long, with a bit more editing this could have been even better.

Oct 29th
89. The Wolf Man ☠☠☠☠ / Blu-Ray / 71 min / 1941
A great movie.

90. Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies ☠½ / DVD / 96 min / 1999
Opposite of the last movie. This is pretty dull, the Djinn spends most of his time in prison and then with a Russian guy. The ending action scene is the lone high point.

91. A Bucket of Blood ☠☠½ / New / DVD / 66 min / 1959
Surprisingly good. I liked how it poked fun all of the phonyness.

92. The Loved Ones ☠☠☠ / New / VOD / 84 min / 2009
Pretty good torture movie that wasn't very extreme. The story with the 2 metalheads going on a date felt like it only existed to pad the running time.

Oct 30th
93. The Lost Boys ☠☠☠½ / New / DVD / 97 min / 1987
First time watching this in full. It has some tone problems but is still a fun movie. I feel bad for the grandpa though, his house got fucked up.

94. Tales from the Hood ☠☠½ / DVD / 97 min / 1995
4 tales about dirty cops, abuse, bad politics and gang violence, centered around a funeral home. Not bad, some of the stuff was uncomfortable. I need to upgrade my DVD as the transfer was awful.

95. The Killer Nun ☠☠ / New / Blu-Ray / 85 min / 1979
Murders start happening at a hospital run by nurses, but really not that much happens. Some nice nudity though, but not as sleazy as I was expecting.

96. Trick 'r Treat ☠☠☠½ / Blu-Ray / 82 min / 2007
A fun anthology that really provides the Halloween feeling.

Oct 31st
97. The Exorcist ☠☠☠☠☠ / Blu-Ray / 122 min / 1973
A great movie, the medical stuff is the scariest thing.

98. Halloween: Resurrection ☠½ / DVD / 89 min / 2002
It starts with a stupid retcon and gets dumber from there. The webcam stuff looked bad and the party watching the live stream was lame.

99. Letterkenny: Haunting Of Modeans II ☠☠☠☠ / New / VOD / 23 min / 2017 / Wildcard
A decent special centered around a prank in the bar.

100. A Nightmare on Elm Street ☠☠☠☠ / DVD / 91 min / 1984
Watched with the RLM commentary. Some bad acting aside I still think this movie is great.

101. The Fog ☠☠☠½ / Blu-Ray / 89 min / 1980
An underrated movie. Moves along quite quickly.

102. Horror Hospital ☠☠½ New / DVD / 90 min / 1973
This was ok. Turns out the spa is turning people into zombies.

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



First-Time Viewing: 33 | Blu-Ray: 16 | DVD: 12 | TV: 20 | Streaming: 36 | Commentaries Listened To: 1

1920: 1 | 1930s: 1 | 1940s: 1 | 1950s: 3 | 1960s: 8 | 1970s: 15 | 1980s: 16 | 1990s: 11 | 2000s: 7 | 2010s: 21

LIST IS FINAL

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 (1958)-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)-TV-***** 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)-Streaming-***** 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.
58. The Brides of Dracula (1960)-Blu-Ray-*** Definitely 2nd-tier Hammer. It's an enjoyable film and Peter Cushing is excellent as Van Helsing, but David Peel as the lead vampire just doesn't have Christopher Lee's star quality.
59. Nosferatu (1922)-TV-**** I could easily believe Max Schreck was a real vampire; his performance is that creepy.

Oct. 21
60. Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987)-Blu-Ray-**** The high point of the series as teens in a mental hospital fight Freddy in their dreams. Freddy gets off one-liners but he stops just short of self-parody.
61. Day of the Dead (1985)-Blu-Ray-**** Romero made this film as a criticism of Reagan's America, where people had lost faith in institutions and themselves. I wonder what movie he would have made about Trump.

Oct. 22
62. Residue (2017)-Streaming-*** Lovecraft Noir. A private detective comes into possession of a book that draws him into other dimensions. There's a lot here to like, but the lead actor (who is also the producer) is so listless a presence that it is difficult to care about his fate.
63. Twins of Evil (1971)-DVD-*** Middling Hammer vampire flick that takes boobs and blood to a new level.
64. The Mummy (1999)-TV-**** The high point of Brendan Fraser's career. A rousing spectacle that should have been the template for Universal's current failed reboot of their Dark Universe films
65. Bride of Chucky (1998)-TV-*** Forgettable sequel clearly ripped off from Bonnie and Clyde, although Jennifer Tilly is entertaining as Chucky's moll, Tiffany.


Oct. 23
66. 28 Days Later (2003)-DVD-**** Superlative zombie film that really feels post-apocalyptic as we see Cillian Murphy wandering alone in an empty, garbage-strewn London. The quick cuts in the action scenes amp up the visceral terror of the grotesque, drooling zombies. The one drawback is the crappy camcorder-style image-I wish Boyle hadn't chosen the Dogme 95 stripped-down style to film this.
67. Here Alone (2016)-Streaming-**** This is similar to a movie I watched for the 2014 OHMC, Dead Within, another film about a woman surviving alone in the woods after the collapse of civilization during the zombie apocalypse. That film examined the mental disintegration caused by a long bout of solitude, whereas this movie is about survival at all costs.

Oct. 24
68. Children of the Night (2016)-Streaming-**** A Buenos Aires news reporter is lured to an orphans home to investigate the deaths of children, but it turns out that it's a shelter for child vampires, who are being stalked and killed by a gang of vampire hunters. The movie's sympathies are entirely with the vampires, and when the squad of human vamp killers are wiped out, we cheer the gore and carnage. Some of the themes in this film made me extremely squeamish, but it was an excellent FTV overall.

Oct. 25
69. MST3K: The Horror of Party Beach (1964)-Streaming-***** The movie is horrible, not-to mention racist, but it's a top-notch MST3K ep.
70. MST3K: Hobgoblins (1986)-Streaming-** Even with Mike and the bots, this was painful.

Oct. 26
71. Cat People (1982)-Blu-Ray-**** Even though Paul Schrader's direction strips away the atmospheric horror of the Val Lewton original in favor of gore, the movie still works today, not least because of Natassia Kinski's unearthly beauty.
72. Night of the Living Dead (1968)-DVD-**** For today's George Romero theme, I had to watch the film that spawned an entire new horror genre. Nearly 50 years later, it still retains the power to shock. I suspect Criterion is going to release a 50th anniversary Blu-Ray next year, seeing that Janus Films has been exhibiting a new 4K remaster around the country
73. H.P. Lovecraft's Necronomicon: Book of the Dead (1993)-Streaming-**** Solid anthology film with a wraparound showing Lovecraft stealing the Necronomicon from sinister monks. The gooey creature effects in each story were excellent, apart from the animated bat-monsters in the last story.
74. Anarchy Parlor (2015)-TV-* Hostel, but with tattoos. Pro-tip: If you find yourself in Eastern Europe and a hot girl invites you to a party with free drinks, decline, or else you'll be killed and skinned so a tattoo artist can create ugly portraits on your skin and sell them.

Oct. 27
75. The Conjuring 2 (2016)-TV-***** As frightening as the first film, The Conjuring 2 follows the Warrens as they attempt to exorcise a demon tormenting a British family.
76. The Brotherhood of Satan (1971)-Blu-Ray-**** I absolutely love this movie, despite its glaring flaws. Strother Martin's performance as the leader of the Satanic coven is an absolute hoot.

Oct. 28
77.5. The Paul Lynde Halloween Special (1976)-Streaming-***** This blast from the past is my Halloween tradition.
77.5. The Haunted History of Halloween (2005)-Streaming-***** I wish The History Channel would drop their lowest-common-denominator "reality shows" and bring back informative docs like this one.
80. House of Dark Shadows (1970)-TV-** Dan Curtis really didn't understand that TV doesn't look good on film. The movie is entertaining and has a few good scenes, but the screenplay just replicated the soap opera.
81. Split (2016)-TV-***** M. Night Shyamalan made a good movie, who knew? James McAvoy's performance as the multiple personalities is amazing.
82. SNL Halloween (2017)-TV-***** The highlights are the Kellyanne the Dancing Clown and David S Pumpkins sketches.

Oct. 29
83. The Night Stalker (1972)-streaming-**** The TV-movie that introduced the great Carl Kolchak.
84. The Night Strangler (1973)-Streaming-**** The sequel to the The Night Stalker is not quite as iconic a film, but it has an interesting villain (a Civil War-era doctor discovered immortality through killing young women for their hormones every few decades)
85. The Norliss Tapes (1975)-Streaming-*** An investigative reporter looks into the story of a sculptor who made a pact with a demon. This one is drab and really could have used Darrin McGavin.
86. The Thing (1982)-Blu-Ray-****** Today Carpenter's version of the Thing is considered a genre classic and the original has been largely forgotten, but 35 years ago it was trashed by critics who compared it to Howard Hawkes's film (yes, the credit is Christian Nyby, but Hawkes really directed it), amd it bombed at the box office.

Oct. 30
87. Evilspeak (1981)-Streaming-*** I can't call Evilspeak a good movie, but it is fun to watch. Ron Howard's ugly brother plays a misfit cadet at a military school who communicates with the spirit of a Spanish Satan cultist who gives him the power to kill his enemies, with the help of some demonic pigs.
88. Fright Night (1985)-DVD-**** Still holds up 30 years later

Oct. 31
89. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "Once More With Feeling" (2001)-Streaming-****Joss Whedon first showed his songwriting chops with this episode that he expanded in Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog./ Adam Ruins Everything, "Adam Ruins Halloween" (2017)-Streaming-****Adam Conover busts some myths about All Hallows Eve./It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" (1966)-Streaming-****I got a rock.
90. The House That Wouldn't Die (1970)-Streaming-**** Barbara Stanwyck and Richard Egan get involved with spirits. Ir's such a shame that we don't have vehicles for washed-up movie stars these days.
91. Fright Night (1985)-Streaming-***** The 2nd best vampire film of the 80s after Near Dark
92. Hell House LLC (2016)-Streaming-**** Don't invite demons into your Halloween hell house
93. Poltergeist (1982)-TV-***** There's no way Spielberg didn't direct this.
94. The Old Dark House (1932)-TV-**** I had never seen this before. I think it was a lost fil, but really fun and weird, without actually being scary
95. Rosemary's Baby (1968)-Blu-Ray-***** A triumph of writing, direction, and acting, proving that you can make a scary film with no blood or effects.
96. The Cabin in the Woods (2012)-Blu-Ray-***** Joss Whedon wrote the perfect Halloween film.
