September 30 [Criterion Challenge Crossover Theme Night - starting after dusk, 7:13pm] (5 hours, 2 minutes watched)
01. Ghostbusters (1984, 105 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ Creative mix of comedy and supernatural. The UHD video quality made some smaller details I hadn't noticed before pop and it was refreshing to revisit. Format: Digital [UHD, FandangoNow]. Theme
02. Dressed to Kill [Unrated Cut] (1980, 105 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Stylish that flirts with daring adult themes and has moments of brilliance but falters with a (perhaps intentionally) predictable ending leaning into some dated stigma tropes that blunt an otherwise well directed thriller. Format: Digital [HD, Vudu].1st Viewing ThemeSubset
03. Suspiria (1977, 92 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Glorious restoration makes the avant garde elements pop and the leering ethereal camera more impactful with a style over substance verbal exposition heavy plot. The score remains one of the most memorable.Format: Blu-ray [Synapse Films Restoration].

October 01 [Night of the Living Dead 50th Anniversary] (9 hours, 31 minutes watched)
04. Lifeforce ['Director's Cut'] (1985, 116 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Lifeforce smartly updates the Dracula mythos while keeping many of the core elements, dipping into scifi but with flying blood phantoms and zombie slaves. Some lurid trappings played so serious it's gratuitous without feeling sleazy and carries a gravitas. Gnarly vampire corpse effects. Some elements feel cliche. Format: Blu-ray. ThemeSubset
05. The Devil and Father Amorth (2017, 68 minutes) ★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ [SIZE="1"]'Documentary' about an actual exorcism starting with the oddity of the creative team behind 1973's The Exorcist hyping their classic, while apparently real it has some of the worse aspects of found footage with tilted camera work and talking heads without any real depth. The 'centerpiece' of a 'real' exorcism isn't as compelling as it's fictional counterpart often is. Some of the effects, like the voice, seem manufactured and the priest calmly repeatedly asking the spirit to leave or 'authorities' opinion on possession is ultimately too uninteresting and surface level - it makes me grateful for the talents of actual actors. This contradicts what I've always heard about the Catholic Church not commonly performing exorcisms so makes me wish for a more comprehensive documentary on the subject that doesn't hige on horror film writer pontificating on the nature of evil. "Do you believe there is inherent evil in all of us?"Format: Streaming [Netflix].1st Viewing
[Random Netflix International Film Double Feature]
06. The Secret: Suster Ngesot Urban Legend (2018, 98 minutes) ★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Throwaway plot with cliche imagery this Ringu-lite film wastes large swaths of time on extended games of 'hide and go seek,' with a lead that acts much more juvenile than suspension of disbelief allows and story points that get dropped. I sometimes think international films are interesting in how they repurpose tropes but this one just xeroxes from much better films. There are some attempts at being atmospheric with a large scenic house or a dimly lit hospital but ultimately no real substance and too many tangents. There's an annoying, slightly morbid, nursery rhyme that keeps getting repeated and must easily take up 5+ minutes of run time. Format: Digital [Netflix].1st Viewing
07. Mythily Veendum Varunnu (2017, 88 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Apparently the title is the character's name, one mystery solved. Slow going at first but has an interesting 'indian' flair with woes over arranged marriage, dowry, and caste complimented by an infectious lack of grit. Invests in character setup and carries through 'frights' that blur the line between subtlety and low budget. Never especially intense or graphic but with some lurid plot that comes across as general audience friendly pulp. Ultimately too incoherent and scattered. Format: Digital [Netflix].1st Viewing
08. Psychos in Love (1987, 88 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Proudly amateur film with a dark sense of humor that doesn't mess much with setup gunning for kill after kill from the go - gleefully cartoonish and 'adult.' Now I have the zany PoL song stuck in my head. Format: Blu-ray.
09. Night of the Living Dead (1968, 97 minutes) ★★★★★★★★★✰ Maverick social commentary shines with an isolated sense of dread that works better than any of the more obvious zombie horrors. Format: Blu-ray. [UK Netwerk] Theme
10. Laddaland (2011, 113 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ [SIZE="1"] Nicely draws in suburban family anxieties but to an inflated degree sometimes at a loss. So far probably the scariest film I've seen this month with more heart and melodrama than average to give it some weight. Format: Digital [Netflix]1st Viewing

October 02 [Studies in Terror Theme Night] (9 hours, 38 minutes watched)
11. The Maus (2017, 90 minutes) ★★★★★★★★★✰ Ethnic based slow burn interspersed with hallucinatory imagery playing on the Bosnian War (to the point I googled it). It's tense but not even really clearly a horror film for so long, nicely ambiguous with hints at terror mixing machismo and paranoia with sly situational humor played straight. Abstract challenging elements within an intelligent script. Format: Digital [Netflix].1st Viewing
12. Blue Sunshine (1977, 94 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Grisly hair ailments and horrific in your face violence well complimented the investigative aspects and the hooks were intense enough to carry through the sometimes slow aspects. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing ThemeSubset
[Possession Double Feature]
13. The Secrets of Emily Blair (2016, 95 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ [SIZE="1"]Sleekly produced possession film that hits the right notes even if it doesn't break the mold from possession/exorcism films. Solid acting and some brutality keeps things intense. Earlier situational moments are more amusing (sort of exorcism sitcom) but as it goes along it becomes more cliche. Format: Digital [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
14. Veronica (2017, 105 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ [SIZE="1"]Tries to parallel demonic forces with secular details like loneliness or 'kids raising kids' in the lives of low income latchkey kids. It works as a sort of poetry where definitions are vague and themes are visible but some of it seems contrived or pretentious (for example there is literally a blind nun, looks cool but makes 0 sense and feels engineered). There are better possession films. Format: Digital [Netflix, Spanish language ouija one not other 2017 Veronica].1st Viewing
15. The Blood Splattered Bride (1972, 102 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Progressive relationship sexual themes makes this film that works more as a metaphor of female 'liberation' than as a horror film. I'm fond of 70s European exploitation horror and remember enjoying BSB more in earlier viewings. While I think this is a feminist film my wife commented on the plentiful and sometimes nonsensical nudity leaving me wondering if that contrasts with what I think the themes are or 'makes' them (women are either being sexually empowered or repressed). Format: Blu-ray [Mondo Macabro red case limited edition]. Theme
16. Headhunter (1988, 92 minutes) ★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ [SIZE="1"]African tribal vibe is interesting but was done better in Ganja & Hess; here it's bogged down by an unconvincing police procedural with a fake Tom Selleck (you can tell he's not real because this one can't act). I wish more movies catered to mysticism, but not like this - this movie made me want to cut off my head.Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing

October 03 [Jawsploitation Theme Night] (9 hours, 25 minutes watched)
17. Corbin Nash (2018, 94 minutes) ★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ B-grade action fluff - the kind of movie where there are machine gun frequent swear words in place of any action. Strippers gyrate fully clothed here as an example of the tease in play with CN, a 'hero' so macho he has his name tattoo'ed on his chest. This is a poor man's Blade/Batman, if Blade where the kind of movie about drag vampires and 45 minutes of shirtless wrestling. It's unintentionally offense and mostly setup for what could be the most routine tv series ever. Format: Digital [Netflix].1st Viewing
18. 47 Meters Down (2017, 89 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Underwater photography will never get old to me and this film has a nice murky blue atmosphere but is obviously shot on a well lit dim looking stage; I'm not a big fan of killer shark (fortunately this isn't really a shark movie) films and feel like this works best on the strength of character drama between the two leads - which is unfortunately shallow complaining about an ex-boyfriend for too much of the lead-in. In the last half the tension ratchets up nicely. Format: Digital [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
19. Blood Beach [Extended and Uncut] (1981, 96 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ I enjoyed BB in the past so looked forward to revisiting it's deliciously absurd premise. Rewatching it today the flaws were more obvious - some characters are out of place, a bit slow, but I still love the concept. Format: Digital [Thanks to Alyxstarr]. Theme Subset
20. Pay the Ghost (2015, 94 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Starts with the strangest most un-Halloween like 'parade' and 'carnival' and Nicolas Cage plus don't seem to emote very well about their missing son; but they better capture the 'mid-grief' phase after the immediate hit. I'll admit to sometimes having a soft spot for PG13 rated horror movies that play out more like 'dark fantasy' and while there's no compelling reason to recommend PtG I enjoyed it more than I expected as a fast paced travelogue though it's own urban setting in search of a plot and teases at frights just enough to seem mystical. I would have liked to see more meat to the 'lost child' theme with parental guilt, etc. Format: Digital [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Subset
21. Jaws 3-D (1983, 99 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ One of the most mechanical lifeless looking sharks in film history occasionally pops out as kids mostly muck around Seaworld, it takes so long to get going and aside from what must have been a cool 3D gimmick in 1983 has little really going for it. The aquatic park is a cool setting especially with an underwater tunnel, I wish it has been part of a better movie. Format: Digital [Vudu].
22. Orca (1977, 93 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Works hard to establish that a killer whale is strategically blockading a port city to get revenge on a visitor and spends so much time humanizing the whale giving it a sense of agency that is unintentionally funny in it's extreme. Has some scenic scapes and a more abstract plot than usual that sometimes works as a cautionary tale of nature having value beyond to the degree it bends to man. Format: Digital [Vudu]. Theme

October 04 [Elevator Theme Night] (6 hours, 37 minutes watched)
23. The Lift (1983, 95 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Oddball series of vignettes about elevator death wrapped in a framing plot about a repair man investigating - it's campy and far out but with a premise that balances zany and evil well tapping into a fear of elevators ever self respecting human should have. Format: Blu-ray.1st Viewing Theme
24. Botched [Uncut] (2007, 95 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Humor is hit or miss and sometimes too 'cornball' but Botched has the most bizarre plot twists it's hard not to be captivated wondering what insanity will happen next in the compulsively original premise (the less you know the better). Format: Streaming [Vudu HD]. Theme
[Bad Parents Triple Feature]
25. Darkness Rising (2017, 81 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Standard haunted house affair with an awkward backstory about traumatic family history staying with a woman who returns to a near abandoned family home. Spectres who have more depth and purpose than average; frights are routine and there's a good sense of mystery beyond just scares but some of it is so 'occult' it doesn't quite make sense. Format: Streaming [Netflix].1st Viewing Theme
26. Mom and Dad (2017, 84 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Leans heavily into extremes of parental anxiety and morphs them into horror tropes, it bumps against being shocking and adds more 'character,' than you might see in say a ravenous zombie movie, but ultimately neither satirical enough nor frightening enough to really deliver on it's premise. Some of the actors are better than average and I enjoyed bits of the suburban family angst but the horror elements felt uneven and premise too bizarre. Wavering between large scale epidemic and smaller scale family dynamics means neither one really delivers until the last half when it gets better but paints itself it a corner. Format: Digital [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
27. Mom (1991, 95 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ I was surprised to have not heard of a 1991 horror movie by MGM like this before... but then I found out why, not great - overly long for the premise and one note nature of the hook with fleeting moments that are more interesting and practical effects from the prime of the medium. The opening scene werewolf male has some of the worse acting I've seen yet and some of the low production elements show. The mother son horror dynamic was done more gleefully in Dead Alive. Format: Digital [Vudu HD].1st Viewing
28. The House of Deadly Secrets (2018, 86 minutes) ★½✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Straight forward 'thriller' with tame threats and secrets that are of the obvious, perhaps intended to be ironic, variety. This was not the epic haunted house movie I've been searching for and has a lite family friendly vibe (well other than the murder). Format: Digital [Netflix].1st Viewing
29. The Shaft [aka Down] (2001, 101 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Remake of The Lift that is much more polished - empty lobbies are transformed into elaborate crowd filled marble caverns but stays true to plot which is a simple one to justify the elevator gags. This one brings a bazooka when the original had a handgun.Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme Subset

October 05 [Anthology Theme Night] (10 hours, 6 minutes watched)
30. Kwaidan (1965, 183 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Amazing visuals with vivid color scheme these scenic tales are well crafted but sometimes overly long emphasizing dramatic hooks that aren't always logical. It's possible I'm overlooking parts of Japanese history that would help me appreciate Kwaidan even more. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
31. ABCs of Death 2.5 (2016, 86 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ If you enjoyed the previous 2 ABCs of Death then I definitely think 2.5 is worth seeing - there's some crap segments in it but also ones that are zany and far out enough to be worth a view. My favorite segments are M is for Magnetic Tape, M is for Mailbox, and M is for Mom - which are handled in much more creative ways then the titles alone let on. None of the segments seem low budget or amateur and if anything it’s more the content that’s hit and miss; it makes one wonder how these can look so polished and indie films can sometimes look so indie. So many ‘push the envelope’ in refreshingly gorey or intentionally over the top ways it can be fatiguing (also not a fan of the poop humor in some). Format: Streaming [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
32. [B]Phobia 2 (2009, 125 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ [SIZE="1"]Nicely ambiguous characters and an intelligent script. Comparing it to over movies this month Phobia 2 has a morality 'come-up-ance' that is unfortunately missing in many horror films. Sobering twists in a series of stories where the characters are often ambiguous, both good and bad enough to be sympathetic. I can think of more than a few films that are missing some of the 'heart' in heart wrenching that we see with Phobia 2. Some great concepts with more depth at play. I especially liked the first segment and the trucker one (well also the film crew one, and the salvage one – which is nearly all). Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
33. Tales from the Hood 2 (2018, 111 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Better than the generic cover art or duration since original lets on but it is preachy and too 'on the nose' with politics today getting weaker as it progresses with the finale collapsing into juvenile humor and cringeworthy near literal current event references. The first two thirds are refreshing thowbacks to when horror anthologies where more about light humor horror than intense weirdness; there's some occasionally uncomfortable social commentary but that's to be expected and a strength of the series. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
34. Twilight Zone: The Movie (1985, 101 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Nicely updated some classic TZ episodes but many of these have become so iconic that this movie feels unjustly routine. The Dan Aykroyd wraparound is memorable. Format: Streaming [Vudu HD]. Theme
35. Caught (2016, 86 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Cryptic missionaries visit a home in a film that mixes strange behavior gags with home invasion themes effectively. It's tense and slyly funny with an unusal premise. Format: Streaming [Vudu HD].

October 06 [Zombie Theme Night] (8 hours, 26 minutes watched)
36. Burial Ground: Night of Terror (1981, 85 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ The lack of plot and strange low budget effects give it a dream like quality and those zombies are a gnarly mix of gross and low budget with extra points for creative use of maggots; the zombie masks are a.unique mix of obviously fake but scary and gross in spite of their shoddy production. I admire that BG doesn't waste time with plot and has a mix of gothic and zombies. Sometimes too cheesy for it's own good. Format: Blu-ray [Shriek Show]. Theme Subset
37. War of the Dead (2011, 86 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Smaller scale world war 2 zombie mystery hooked me in, it balances scope well by not tacking more than a small squad of characters and goes for the gusto on set design. It may be I have a weakness of occult nazi stories and zombies but this feels like the action horror movie I didn't know I was looking for despite it's weaknesses. Moody filled with burning cavernous underground bunkers but often obscured by shaking cameras; there's a fight scene where it's literally raining paper the whole time and those details are engaging. There's a lot of popgun bullet spraying as the heroes action pose, to a fault, and some of the shots feel engineered with unintentional pastiche. Format: Digital [Vudu HD].1st Viewing Theme
38. Peelers (2016, 95 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Amateurish is to be expected with a title like this, adds little new to zombie horror. It's hard to criticize a film like this that mostly feels like the victim of poor budget and indie aspirations but ultimately I didn't end up enjoying it much and there are other better movies that cover the same thing. Some of the effects approach being good but so much of it feels cliche. Format: Digital [Vudu HD].1st Viewing Theme
39. Scooby Doo: Camp Scare (2014, 78 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ It's hard to criticize Scooby but this one has so much going on it's hard to keep track, three monsters and a over the top technology camp detract from what could have been a cool romp in the woods - sometimes less is more. Format: Digital [Vudu HD].Subset
40. The Dead Next Door (1989, 84 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Scenes filled with zombies or other sight gags give this an epic scope and it's nicely paced. The effects are better than you'd expect. Despite being 'hd' the image still has a soft quality due to film source. Overall this one's a winner and goes into some of the physics of zombie outbreak without feeling like it's over explaining. Some of the religion vs science themes we've seen before but there's such as constant stream of action and the zombie squad is a really cool idea that it all works. Format: Digital [Vudu "HD"].1st Viewing Subset
41. Zombeavers (2014, 78 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ What seems like the stupidest 'college humor' premise surprises me - it's not high brow but it's not overly obnoxious and reasonably dives into sleazy low hanging fruit of sexualized characters and zombie critters. It's brisk enough and gets right into set-up without worrying about over establishing characters and dialogue is written in a more natural way where characters are more interested in cracking jokes than dramatizing. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. Subset

October 07 [Universal Studios Classic Monsters Theme Night] (12 hours, 58 minutes watched)
42. Last Girl Standing (2015, 91 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Clever idea of following a horror slasher survivor after the ordeal, here it's handled with less flair such as the most routine villain. It jumps into the mundane without executing a strong hook, trusting it's own premise perhaps too much without supporting it as well with necessary setup or solid acting. Doesn't seem to have as much fun with the plot and the actors sort of sleepwalk through it. The dialogue is sometimes painfully over polite (i.e. 'gee I'm sorry I over reacted,' then 'oh it's ok, don't worry about it' erupting in way more apologizes on screen than kills or even jokes – it's like a new apology subgenre lacking whit or fun where everyone it painfully sympathetic or unrealistically rude). It's much less 'meta' and self-aware than it probably should have been wallowing in overly serious fluff – no shocks, no frights for too much of it's runtime. They could have improved to film to make it's last chapters a short film. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing
43. Dr Cyclops [Svengoolie Episode] (1940 [Dr Cyclops] / 2014 [Svengoolie episode], 95 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Albert Dekker has an unique physique that combined with the spectacles looks imposing, not unlike a cyclops of greek legend (bulkier with obviously limited vision). I think his combination of scientific reserve and maniacal 'makes' the film more than the effects. The Svengoolie material corresponding with this, it was my first exposure to the horror host and was fun - Sevengoolie's a corny fellow but energetic. Format: Digital [thanks to Alyxstarr]. 1st Viewing ThemeSubset
44. The Mind's Eye (2015, 88 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Steeped in stagelight color and synth score this throwback film is like the spaghetti western of telekinetic horror, it hardly re-invents anything but very effectively riffs on stuff we've seen in The Fury or Scannerswith some gnarly effects. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing
45. The Sitter (2017, 97 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Psychosexual without being lurid this moody film is slow paced but well shot and abstract, I could see it not being for everyone but I liked it a lot more than I expected. It's a slow burn that's at times too slow and psychological, which I found to be wonderful and even when things shift pace it's a well executed mystery with twists and over the top terrors. The trailer is misleading. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing
46. The House With a Clock in the Wall (2018, 105 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ It's hard to be critical of all ages films like this but the type that goes all in on magic to the level of near constant fantasy takes some of the thrill out of it in my opinion. It basically starts as a comedy and never really recovers a level of tension despite some twists running off sight gags for so much of it's time. Overall me and the kids enjoyed it and it's refreshing for their to be family friendly season offerings. I'm not a big fan of Jack Black, he's masterful sometimes but often seems to play the same basic character and struggles with dramatic chops. The rise of a darker adversary makes things more interesting but editing could have been tighter.. Format: Theatrical. 1st Viewing
47. Son of Dracula (2017, 97 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ I've never been a big fan of Dracula stories (vampires are neat but the painstaking re-tellings of Bram Stoker's story get stale imo). It is interesting to me how Dracula is more of a real estate mogul in these than a fiend of the night and that one of his threats is to family property. Apparently this is the first time he is seen transforming to a bat on screen. Son of Dracula does an efficient job of keeping the same tone as earlier Dracula offerings but not being redundant. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing
48. Split (2016, 117 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ James McAvoy performs well in a premise that seemed cringeworthy to me, the multiple personality stuff is no less over the top than I had feared. There is some grit and it's an ambitious premise but using real world trauma and make believe veiled as mental health as plot premises is dis-tasteful. Format: Digital [Vudu 4K]. 1st Viewing
49. Shivers (1975, 88 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Grisly premise that's far out and themes of civilization going savage make for an interesting theme. Dated now and perhaps not as impactful since biological horrors to the extreme of this have become more popular. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing

October 08 [Atmospheric Theme Night] (9 hours, 35 minutes watched)
[Jungle Horrors Double Feature]
50. Vinyan (2008, 100 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Compelling mix of mysticism, travelogue, grief analogy, and trafficking cautionary tale that is scenic and cryptic but sometimes heavy handed in message while also being nicely subtle on the more interesting hint of lost children. I especially enjoyed Vinyan in the past in part because there's few movies as scenic as this with the jungles of Thailand and the abstract horror. Some of the preachiness eventually feels like it has more depth and gets abstract enough it’s more my style. Format: Digital [Vudu HD].
51. Hisss (2010, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Excellent far out premise about a vengeful snake goddess shoehorned into a some giallo tropes that don’t quite work (detective trying to solve murders when all we want is snake goddess carnage) and needed tighter pacing. Didn’t expect ‘bollywood’ style film since Jennifer Lynch is an American director. Bollywood flair carries the film and while some of the effects are cheap and villain cheesy those doesn’t necessarily detrack given the Bollywood pulpiness. Some fertility issues are more in your face than typical but that’s on theme. Format: Digital [Netflix HD]. 1st Viewing
52. Mohawk (2010, 93 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Energetic and intense historical action in a cat and mouse chase between revolutionary colonist and Mohawk Indians. Tense twists and a great colonial forest setting make this film well paced and unique. If anything it's all wire tense mood and scenery without as much character setup. Format: Digital [Netflix HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
53. Ataúd Blanco: El Juego Diabólico [aka White Coffin] (2016, 75 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Scenic road chase movie with some odd twists that are distracting and random coming across not as surreal but as forced. The motherhood themes are potentially ripe but here there are too many fantasy elements that when there's a zinger twist the strained magical realism that proceeds it makes it seem too dreamlike and the imagery is too mundane to really sell the developments - like a made for tv make believe. Format: Digital [Netflix HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
54. The Lazarus Effect (2015, 83 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ The worst fake science mumbo jumbo obsesses these strangely casual scientists who cannot help but overexplain out way through the film. I haven't seen flatliners in a long time, but this feels like a pail Flatliner's imitation if Flatliners was about people who like to use initials to explain death and bore me instead of thrillseekers.Format: Digital [Netflix HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
55. Mother! (2017, 121 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Abstract plot that stayed with me leaving me thinking, it's bizarre and the less you know in advance the better. Balances mystery and metaphor well.Format: Digital [Vudu 4K].1st Viewing Theme

October 09 [Cheesy 80s Theme Night] (11 hours, 41 minutes watched)
56. The Zero Boys (1986, 89 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Surprisingly meta with more depth than is obvious at first glance, re-watching it there are a lot of horror conventions this subverts and slyly lampoons with heavily armed heroes vs subdued slashers. The pacing is more restrained than the Zero Boy's machismo lets on nicely teasing at horror rather than a high body count.Format: Blu-ray. ThemeSubset
57. Out of the Dark (1988, 89 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Routine thriller with nicely dated elements (80s fashion, music, slow mo, etc) it's sleazy with a creepy clown mask killer. Amateur sleuthing run amok with some nice gore and many leering camera swipes. The ending reveal is predictable and so matter of fact that I cannot tell if it's intended to play on dramatic irony earlier established. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
58. Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers (1988, 80 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Starts out with matter of fact campy kills and an obvious slasher but as things build it crescendos nicely into a campy gorey mess. I find that this and the first seem to get better as they go along and pile on the bodycounts, not necessarily through inventive kills but the dark comedy way things gel together from seeming routine to suddenly being more over the top. Bonus points here for not just being a retread of the first and it's gimmick plus some horror references. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
59. Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland (1989, 80 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Starts with a great hook but get increasingly boring. The 'campers' are all obvious adults and the 'campground' is some of the most barebone skimpy tents in the woods, it's missing a lot of the social elements that helped the first two along and replaces them with a 'under privileged' and 'wealthy' camper model that does nothing more than cater to the worst stereotypes of socioeconomics. Some of the kills are unintentionally funny, the sort of thing you'd wonder why the victim doesn't just walk off or how a small tree branch could be so fatal. Format: Digital [Vudu HD].1st Viewing Theme
60. The Wraith (1986, 93 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ A road race movie with an over the top mean spirited 80s 'gang' updating drag race movies with a supernatural car; the bad guys are mean spirited to the extreme and since it's told mostly from their perspective is hard to relate to them. The setting is unique and unusual that the supernatural is the good guy. Not especially scary and more of a revenge film. Clint Howard is amusingly out of character trying to be tough. Pump up the 80s hair metal for this one. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
61. Slaughterhouse Rocks (1988, 87 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Slaughterhouse Rock was the horrible campy nonsense I needed; it's dumb and cheesy but that makes it work. Although there is neither a slaughterhouse nor much rock (unless you consider Devo rock). It's not a good film with transparent effects and a fashion challenged ghost over explaining the plot, but it's enjoyable. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme
62. Murder Syndrome [aka Murder Obsession] (1981, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Impenetrable but stylish Italian thriller with a gothic atmosphere in a castle complete with ghostly footprints and a bare breasted woman being crucified while a plastic spider crawls on her. So far out twists and lurid imagery with a psychological minded mystery. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme
63. Hands of the Ripper (1975, 85 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Slow going with period details I appreciate but a strained/elaborate way of connecting in Jack the Ripper with emphasis on an oddly too nice doctor, they should have called this 'The Too Nice Doctor Movie' instead. The flashing light device seems corny. I was promised this would be "one of the most gruesome Hammer Horror films every made," and there's got to be a special place in hell for that kind of marketing hyperbole. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing

October 10 [Birthday Theme Night] (9 hours, 24 minutes watched)
64. Happy Death Day (2017, 96 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Far out premise with lots of red herrings and plot twists but a creative sense of fun - if the same person dies multiple times in a reincarnation cycle, how do we rule that as body count? Format: Digital [FandangoNow 4K]. Theme Subset
65. Wish Upon ['Unrated Director's Cut'] (2017, 91 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Entertains some of the less interesting teen horror tropes - the overly elaborate house no one can relate to, the cool girl who becomes a narrow sighted queen ultimately suffering drama that is more social than supernatural, mismatched characters/actors like Ryan Philippe as a dumpster diver, newspaper headline driven epiphanies, etc. It's a cool premise but under utilized trapped in a small scale high school wonderland where the wishes are not grand enough and the supernatural chaos not intense enough - there are similar movies that better explore the moral toll and ambivalence of using a box that grants wishes at a horrible cost. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
66. The Visitor (1979, 109 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰ [hard to rate - frustratingly incoherent but wonderfully shameless]Oddball plot with artful direction. Elements of re-incarnation and entities called Zanteen make the plot un-necessarily difficult to follow but once I realized it was all just set-up for a kid to be at deathly at odds with her mother Omen style and to interject some nonsensical scifi imagery I enjoyed it more, a style over substance ripoff of other movies that turns things up to cosmic degrees - the best description is 'all of 70s horror shoved into one film' (credit to vice.com). I'm still trying to figure out what John Huston's character was doing (other than just representing perhaps 'good'), and admit I resorted to Wikipedia synopsis (which seems to overemphasize a satanic cabal I'm not sure was even there) for some of the plot before realizing it was better to not quite understand and just go with the vibe. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
67. Welcome to Willits (2016, 84 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Amusing alien paranoia help stale stoner kid tropes along; there are stretches where no much happens so the character driven weirdness keeps things afloat. Plays like an overly long joke told in serious tone with a body count, I can't tell if it's a clever idea or a stupid one because while the premise is more original there are some plot holes and stretched conveniences (some flaws are shared group paranoia; odd proximity of kids). If it were not as stylishly directed then it could have fallen apart altogether and it's better executed than the premise deserves, a premise which hurts my head to think about because so nonsensical. Format: Digital [Netflix HD]. 1st Viewing
68. Dead Awake (2016, 99 minutes) ★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Draws out the super obvious premise, it's no mystery the deaths are related to sleep paralysis or there is at least a hint of the supernatural so stop beating around about it. It's like they did a remake of Nightmare on Elm Street but forgot to CGI in Freddy Kreuger; everyone walks around in a panic but there is never an especially clear threat. Format: Digital [Netflix HD]. 1st Viewing
69. Bad Exorcists (2015, 85 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Comedy with exorcism/possession as another gag in the chorus, it's nicely paced but more focused on teen comedy with part of the joke is how oblivious everyone is to the supernatural. Entertaining enough but never laugh out loud funny and at times hammy, flirts with holy watergun style cliches complete with dick pic jokes.Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing

October 11 [Dogs, Bogs (Swamp), or Logs (Cabin) Theme Night] (9 hours, 49 minutes watched)
70. Cujo (1983, 93 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Re-watching Cujo was surreal because it has been a very long time since I saw it; Cujo looks great in high definition. Cujo is a great 'what would you do' scenario. I think future films that 'out-Cujo'ed' Cujo with pacing and atmosphere; but not Dee Wallace who gives a top notch performance. Cujo has some great ideas that seem to fall just short in execution, likely suffering in transition from book to screen. I'm a fan of allegory movies that are filled with social commentary and Cujo flirts with that such as with the unfaithful wife and that the true terrors might come in unexpected forms and I liked that the first half of the movie really focused on suburban strife. When the rabid dog comes in the schlock takes over (I love schlock too) blunting some of the first part making it feel more like extended setup than anything with merits of it's own; left feeling like probably overlooking something thematic. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. Subset
71. Lumberjack Man (2015, 105 minutes) ★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ So far the only recent film I’ve seen I considered abandoning. If films could wink this one invites you to a lame in joke the whole time - filled with awkward church humor and pancakes are literally plot points. What is Michael Madsen doing here? He does what he can with the horrible script but cannot save it. Characters are obnoxiously thin even for a horror movie and the things that do work are imitated from better films. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
72. Arbor Demon (2016, 100 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Hits the right notes with a moody couple going camping complete with some scenic landscapes and subtle paranoia starting with an odd dream about the woman running through the woods pregnant which gives a sense of mysticism to things and there are some cool twists with unique premise. Well acted and while there are times it's low budget is apparent it's very memorable. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing
73. The Pit and the Pendulum (1991, 97 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Enthralling historical drama with Lance Henriksen commanding the screen as grand inquisitor and amazing period elements with much of the film in a cavernous dungeon. Some of the character elements don't quite work as characters sometimes act implausible/inconsistent ways. Format: Digital [Amazon Video]. 1st Viewing
74. Goosebumps (2015, 103 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ I never got much exposure to Goosebumps books as a youth and this was one film I could watch with the kids. It had some cute homages to R.L. Stine but aside from name dropping the series and parading elements of the books around it never really seemed to have a voice of it's own. It was chaotic but aside from sweeping chaos and book based characters never gave the sense it was a unique tale (it reminded me some of Cabin in the Woods, you could say this was as much as Goosebumps movie as Cabin in the Woods is a zombie movie). Some of the CGI was off putting and instead of fleshing anything out it just tossed in literally everything from the series. Format: Digital [Vudu HD].1st Viewing
75. Incident in a Ghostland (2018, 91 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ I'd heard hype about Ghostland so was excited going into it. It confirmed my suspicions that Martyrs director Pascal Laugier should never be allowed to write more screenplays. If your idea of plot is repeated gruesome facial brusing and 'tension' is basically roughing people up then this is totally the film for you. The twist is a simple one that is executed in choppy enough fashion to seem more complicated than it is, it's not unlike Martyrs where is depends on some twist to redeem it and the twist is weakly executed. There are some 'wtf' moments and imagery is occasionally jarring or interesting, but it rings hollow. Some of the cryptic elements are nice but they're overcooked. I did look into reviews/interpretations of Ghostland after watching it and couldn't find anything that changed my mind. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing

October 12 [Apocalyptic Theme Night] (0 hours, 0 minutes watched)
76. A Quiet Place (2018, 91 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Really enjoyed the unusual setup of this and the creatures are very well done. The premise is a bit far out and feels engineered for this type of 'silent film' style to the point of being a little pretentious but so well paced and atmospheric that it's standout. The silence is 'deafening' much of the time with near total sound blackout and that felt immersive, the subtle sound design is the real hero here. Regarding word of a sequel, this is a really good film but the premise itself it probably one of it's weaker qualities and I cannot see another installment being as effectively executed - sometimes less is more.. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
77. Carriers (2009, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Conventional post apocalyptic premise that veers more into morality than most and focused on slow burn simmering personal conflicts. This is like 28 Days Later's more philosophical cousin. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
78. Monster at the Nudist Colony (2015, 76 minutes) ★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Felt like something stupid and trashy; the 'monster' is a horrible gorilla suit and this misrepresents nudists as people who are constantly intertwined in softcore acts (some of which seem physically improbable - more like humping someone's belly button) - I was a little disappointed it didn't even really try to be a movie but probably should have known better. Format: Digital [Amazon Video]. 1st Viewing
79. Discopath (2013, 82 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Discopath has an outrageous premise of a killer triggered by disco music but is handled in such a subtle way it's quiet a good thriller, it's the best kind of pastiche filmed in a vintage looking soft style and handled in a way that even the most campy over the top kill segment is engaging. There is an enthralling use of sound without a lot of frivolous dialogue and lots of background music punctuated by periods of silence. I'm at the point in the challenge where I'm looking for offbeat comedies that are a bit more upbeat, I cannot say Discopath was it given it was a bit more intense/gorey. Format: Digital [Amazon Video]. 1st Viewing
80. Lurking Fear (2013, 82 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Potentially cool monster fiend movie spoiled by cramming way too much into it's funtime, literally everyone have a backstory and it's overly elaborate to where the horror elements take a sideline to a strange graveyard heist plot. Nicely campy in places but just lacks direction in trying to do so much, and when the horrors are in play they seem half backed with a 'twist' that's predictable - one one scene the ghoul is seen in the background just sitting there watching, like a lost extra, which is a good metaphor for how aimless Lurking Fear is. Format: Digital [Amazon Video]. 1st Viewing
81. Monster Family (2017, 96 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ CGI is a step up from what I've seen in many other films like this, vibrant colors and good detail flesh out uninspirited designed. It's like a b-movie Hotel Transylvania and is a little choppy and predictable, neither scenic enough nor funny enough to be much effective and lacking the energy of it's more entertaining big screen ilk. Fart jokes abound and there's an odd emphasis on how parents can be unhappy with themes of considering adultery that seem to not make much sense in context of a family film.Format: Digital [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
82. Mindwarp (1992, 95 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Like a caveman mutant version of The Matrix this is remarkably dated and low budget seeming but really goes all in on the post-apocalyptic gleefully embracing rubber masks and makeshift clothes of our future wasteland. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme

October 13 [Apocalyptic Theme Night] (0 hours, 0 minutes watched)
83. Inside (2007, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Inside is an effective and well executed thriller pulling on parental fears and home invasion elements. There is good tension and it doesn't shy away from gore, it is relentlessly bleak in color tone and in theme. There are a few elements that are awkward, looking cool but don't make sense when you think about it. Some of the effects are dated now. Inside is a nearly a modern classic that has gotten some acclaim but is too often overlooked. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. Theme Subset
84. Constantine: City of Demons (2018, 90 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Cartoon demon on demon fighting action fills the screen in a tale of a child's lost soul - it's not weird enough to be surreal, but weird enough that it's rules/structure are unpredictable and the script interjects some twists that work well. [COLOR="Gray"]Format: Digital [FandangoNow 4K].[/COLOR ]1st Viewing
85. Die Marquise Von Sade [Soft Edition] (1976, 70 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Lurid sexual antics of twin sisters, one of whom consumes the essence of her mates but feels not pleasure - which is instead felt by her twin in an odd twist on Dorian Gray. Poetically framed with some arthouse elements (like Lina Romay literally eating a flower). It's got a plot so abstract that it could seem slow, and I looked up some interpretations of it one - I liked the gutsy theme and it dives head first into exploitation cinema.Format: Digital [Amazon Video].1st Viewing Theme Theme
86. Inside (2016, 89 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Remake tones down the gore and is more emotional; the remake lead is a bit more 'whiny' and some of the elements that made the original great suffer but the remake is probably worth a watch and it does have some elements that are different, like the ending, more characters, and the invader being more prepared. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing
87. Ladronas de Almas (2015, 88 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ [SIZE="1"]Period Spanish horror surrounding the Mexican war for independence and ghouls and while it's a gusty approach the plot tends to be very talky about lost gold. The twist of ghouls is nice but perhaps not lurid enough and some of the frights seem hackneyed. Format: Digital [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
88. Im Schloß der blutigen Begierde [aka Castle of Bloody Lust] (1971, 92 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Gothic horror with a side of boring, there are some gnarly surgery scenes and a rape-y Baron with a lot of horseriding around a castle. One woman wears a dress so low you can see her nipples in a dinner segment. This has a surprising amount of rape for 1968 and a strangely abrupt ending.

October 14 [FACT 100 Greatest Horror Soundtracks Theme Night] (0 hours, 0 minutes watched)
89. The Conjuring (2007, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Genuinely scary with great tension; some of the effects are cliche and the Warren hero worship seems odd but overall a modern age classic. Format: Digital [Vudu 4K].
90. Slumber Party Massacre (1982, 77 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Wastes no time getting to proceedings; the driller killer is cheesy but it's a cool weapon that works curiously well as a sexual euphemism. As a slasher SPM is lukewarm but as a stranger social commentary on gender and sexuality with a phallic wielding killer it's fascinating.Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. Theme
91. Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (1982, 100 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ More of a generic Halloween family movie than a Goosebumps film with cursory appearances by a RL Stine character; not that I was ever a fan of Goosebumps. There is a lot more focus on character development than frights so pacing was sometimes off. Format: Theatrical. 1st Viewing
92. The Brotherhood of Satan (1971, 92 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ References to satanism alone aren't enough to carry a film and the geriatric brood that make up this film do little more than engage in hammy overacting. There is an epic satanic birthday cake. Format: Digital [Vudu HD].1st Viewing
93. Unsane (2018, 98 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ More straight forward of a thriller than I expected, well directed and discretely tongue in cheek. I enjoyed Unsane as an ok time waster and it has some well executed twists. Format: Digital [Vudu 4K]. 1st Viewing
94. Blood on Satan's Claw (1971, 93 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ It took a while to peak my interest but the strangeness with the children and increasing paranoia hooked me in. Has a nice folksy vibe to it.Format: Digital [Amazon]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
95. Devil In My Ride (2013, 95 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ A possession movie with zany characters and hit or miss road trip humor. It was fun, rock n roll, and dumb – I liked it more as something different than the usually dark room bible thumbing exorcism movies more than I did as a film on it's own as it's plot is under developed saved mostly by the strength of charismatic leads who just chew up the scenery.

96. Sleepy Hollow (1999, 110 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ I love the moodiness and atmosphere in an elaborate retelling/update of the Headless Horseman. Some of the scientific debate could have been more subtly implemented; so many of the early scenes are Crane romanticizing the use of science to grimacing statesmen. Johnny Deph does an effective job here but there are times he overdoes his engineered awkwardness. The crimes seem solved in a surprisingly slapdash fashion suggesting the earlier emphasis on science was a red herring (just kidding, we’re supernatural here). The headless horseman effects was especially well done and nicely choreographed. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
97. Peeping Tom (1960, 101 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ The lead is an effectively creepy but proper person who seems to calculated and altering the perception to one where the villain watches an inept police force is interesting. Turning the camera on the murders is brilliant especially with that opening scene and then how the camera tends to leer over the main character showing seemingly mundane details tied to the crimes. Despite a tendency towards over explanation, usually a peeve of mine, it works well given character study elements. The aged technicolor film look adds a lot. Format: Digital [thanks to Alyxstarr]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
98. Inhuman Resources [aka Redd Inc] (2012, 94 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Low production diddy that owes a lot to the Saw franchise about six crime witnesses/attorneys who all end up chained to a desk to do legal tasks while the seemingly resurrected killer presides over them. The workplace commentary is not sharp enough and the scares are mostly torture porn level with twists that are dumb rather than twisted. Format: Digital [Vudu HD].1st Viewing
99. Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018, 97 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Loses some of the horror parody of the first two but keeps sight of the upbeat kid friendly dance party energy, there's some nice underwater eye candy and the conclusion is memorable family friendly fun. I felt like the first two films were stronger and that HT3 kicks right into the gags without as much setup, it is more of the same. Format: Digital [Vudu 4K]. 1st Viewing
100. The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967, 108 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Perfect blend of comedy and atmospheric horror with a eccentric professor and his assistant searching for vampires across as snowscape complete with a vampire ball and ironic plot twists. The vampires have gravitas and never become overly familiar to us. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. Theme
101. Ayla (2017, 87 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Moody and strange with a premise that has problems from the go; a grief based plot that defies reason as an adult man pines for his long deceased sister at the expense of his day to day life. The plot really makes little sense other than for the lead to wallow in angst but I liked the cryptic nature and the odd family conflicts around an unusual and vague plot. I could see Ayla not being for everyone and it could have used more subtlety but I liked it. Format: Digital [Vudu HD].1st Viewing

102. Terrifier (2016, 89 minutes) ★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Sometimes Terrifier struck me as showing promise in isolated segments but ultimately obnoxiously disappointing. It felt almost kind of tame despite the gore; there are scarier clown villains and not much to the premise (to be tense a film needs to do more than chuck around some gore). Most of the buildup seemed to be 'Art the Clown is so cool/scary/evil' without plot, more a series of short vignettes than a film itself. The format worked a bit better as an anthology film with All Hallows Eve, where it seemed more far out and envelope pushing. The silent clown gag was sometimes promising but one note and I felt it hurt the film by being so much more about Art than much of anything else - all the characters felt thin. More pathos please. I liked some of the violence but it needed a better hook and buildup instead of 'zomg look how violent out generic villain is.' Format: Digital [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme Subset
103. Trash Fire (2016, 93 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Richard Bates Jr (of Excision fame) writes refreshingly quirky characters and this was a nice slow burn. Some of the population is perhaps too strange but it seems to come together as a smuck tries to reconnect with his family. This guy is such a jerk then he's not and there are some tonal shifts though the pacing works and it's well acted. Some elements feel abruptFormat: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing
104. The Nun (2018, 96 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Atmospheric and creepy, effectively scary, but too directly clones at least one other movie (the ending is an immediately recognizable rip off) that it left me suffering from second hand embarrassment. Worth seeing but I expected more from a Conjuring film. Format: Theatrical. 1st Viewing
105. Hellfest (2018, 89 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Great idea for a slasher based on a haunted house, not unlike Houses October Build, but the haunted theme park is so elaborate and ever present it feels like too much of a distraction - Hellfest needed more slasher and less theme park. It's nicely seasonal to the point I could practically smell the rubber masks. Format: Theatrical. 1st Viewing
106. The Demon Inside (2017, 99 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Epic indie film that pulls off an ambitious premise that sounds generic, plagued by some of the worse cover art, but delivers on in your face sometimes nicely cartoonish horror comedy (often more tense than funny). Effects are sometimes cheap or acting questionable but never to the point it kills the pace. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing
107. Sendero (2015, 85 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Does little to advance torture with chainsaw massacre lite group dynamics. At one point it seems unintentionally funny that one person shoots someone then someone else shoots them then the shooter or the shooter gets shot. Format: Digital [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
108. Inside [not the french baby film] (2012, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Brilliant supernatural prison thriller that's nicely tense with strangeness while at the same time being intentionally predictable. The set sometimes looks like house under construction and sometimes the apparently low budget shows but it's well acted and takes a basic horror trope to fill out the runtime with two inmates sitting in a cell. I have seen worse one location films but I wonder how Inside will hold up on repeat viewings. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
109. Tenebrae (1982, 101 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Rocking sync music soundtrack and an image that looks especially good on the Synapse blu-ray. I think Tenebrae well deserves the acclaim it gets and is one of Argento's better giallos. Format: Blu-ray [Synapse Films steelbook]. ThemeSubset

110. Who Can Kill a Child? (1976, 112 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰ The beach setting is great and does a good job of pushing some intense themes that stagger between exploitation and metaphor. It's a weighty film because of the premise and statements it seems to try to make about politics. Format: Blu-ray [Mondo Macabro standard]. ThemeSubset
111. Delirium [Photo of Gioria] (1987, 94 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Dated fashionista drama pops across giallo tropes that feel routine at times despite standout hallucinatory visuals (like the eye woman, or a half bee lady]. Lamberto Bava generally does a good job of updating giallo conventions; as is the case here with a pulpy vibe, red herrings, and some usual kills. Format: Blu-ray [Code Red]. 1st Viewing
112. Shock Waves (1977, 85 minutes) ★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ I was warned about Shock Waves, but I had to see it for myself, it's a cool premise and Peter Crushing does what he can when on screen but so little happens. Shots of zombie nazis often don't even appear to be done at the same time as other actors, and these fiends literally push people. I am usually a sucker for aquatic/swamp settings but little is done here and sometimes comically misplaced (like row boating through a shallow river).

113. Victor Crowley (2017, 85 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ I was never a fan of the Hatchet movies, too much of the "humor" I find to be obnoxious. I like the practical effects and horror luminary cameos so want to enjoy these more than I do. In VC so much of the start is just random (like a plane crashes) and it just doesn't quite work; more of the same if you're a fan and it's last third is much better than what proceeds it. [Hatchet 3 is still the highlight of the series] Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing
114. The Haunting of Helena (2012, 84 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Nicely paced and not too subtle but formulaic, much of what we've seen before to the point that as plot develops it's easy to think 'oh, they made another xyz type of film.' It is occasionally creepy with ghosts that seem unusually mean spirited to also be portrayed as victims so some of the tone is odd and drags a bit as we wait out what feels predictable for too long before a really great twist. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
115. Daemonium: Soldier of the Underworld (2015, 112 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Hellacious cosplay display with an obvious green screen quality and daemons that action pose and freeze for cool gunshots; it's a very ambitious film with a lot of action pop bang popcorn action fun of biblical level. There are homages to Star Wars and Thundercats and an over the top road warrior vibe. Format: Digital [Netflix]. 1st Viewing
116. The Ballerina (2017, 107 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Relentlessly melancholy supernatural film about grief with some odd plot elements (like a homeless father and daughter living in the woods) that seem forced and defy common sense to a fault, regardless of the engineered aspects so far this might be the most emotional horror film I've seen recently. Some of the supernatural visuals are straight forward, but I suppose they're not going to scares and it does different things than you might expect going in. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing
117. Sacrilege (2017, 96 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ An 'evil' music box compels hallucinatory imagery and some strange haunting elements. Frights are hit or miss and some of the acting amateur (like when a pivotal character dies and things just carry on). Sacrilege throws everything into the mix and some of the scary imagery is effective despite cheap production values and it is 'entertaining' even if it's some half formed hodge podge of stuff hung on the same types of tropes we've become familiar with. The cover art featuring a nun is just shameless marketing with nothing to do with the film, oddly it contains many horror tropes except nuns. I'm glad I saw it because even through it's got some flaws it's much better than I expected but I'm not sure I can explain it, the gradually developing premise takes some iffy tactics but really gels well with some cool twists. Sacrilege left me feeling more uneasy than most other horror films.Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing
118. The Haunted House of Kirby Road (2016, 83 minutes) ★½✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Stoner comedy, teen drama comedy... within the first 5 minutes there's complaints about not having enough pot and 'jokes' about texting penis ascii art. Someone told me this was good; I hope the supernatural forces from the last movie get them because the ones in here are the weakest yet. The crew goes on to check out some Youtube style videos and 'lol' get instruction on how to use condoms at a gas station, until noting continues to happen for over half it's already short run time.

119. Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008, 98 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ I want to like Repo more than I do & it's got great production values. Constant subtle background music mixing in different sound effects is it's strength, a slow steady unending song. Shakesphere tragedy more than as a musical. The songs are so subdued and 'sing songy' dialogue more than jamming melodic beats,would have struck better if the songs had been more empathic, crescendos nicely to a frantic carnival like conclusion.

120. Unfriended: Dark Web (2018, 93 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ I like the Unfriended films, doesn't necessarily seem original that they're based on computer interface but format actually gives a lot of information with all the windows. Tense with nice twists but plays on the worst mythology of the internet, this dark web nonsense, twisting it into supernatural implausible items - it's stupid but very well executed. Format: Digital [Vudu HD].1st Viewing Theme
121. Insidious: The Last Key (2018, 103 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Insidious in the worst ways; it's premise is very convoluted (like a plot point it finding a whistle under a bed, the same bed that's been in the house over 40 years since one person was a kid - no one even moved the furniture despite habitation?) and offers little original to the a franchise that once started off very strong. Some visuals are fantasy enough to be interesting but lot to slog through. I cannot tell if I respect that these all tie into one another or if it just shows how forced the plot is.

The Vault (2017, 91 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Frustrated angst filled bank robbers kick things off with a boom in an epic heist but then they're impotently trying to decide how to escape stalling the film at a mid-point until some overly dim lit weirdness happens. Could be creepy, but too dark and heavily edited to see other than flashes of generic. I love the premise and there's some nice twists but I wish some frights had been better delivered. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
123. Jeepers Creepers 3 (2017, 102 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Ably balances horror, action, and comedy but some of the effects are dodgy. I'm glad they made another JC film, this one is no exception to them being well paced chase sequences. Creeper has changed from a mystical horror beast to something that gets much more direct screen time during daylight scenes complete with an in depth exploration of his vehicle, from the opening scene, this is probably necessary to prevent being a rehash and there are some clever references to earlier films. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme
124. The Forest of Lost Souls (2018, 70 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Black and white Portuguese film with artful shot compositions in a scenic forest and a thematic focus on bleak sadness that matches the drab colors of the film. Gradual subtle plot that is both shocking and nicely cryptic building on itself from abstract themes of the suicide forest (length of sadness) to more base slasher elements but with an arthouse slow mo style which I found to be a good metaphor for suicide/sadness devastating loved ones (which is my interpretation, not an obvious part of the film).Format: Digital [Amazon Prime]. 1st Viewing Theme
125. Scream and Scream Again (1970, 95 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Initially disjointed as different threads come together for a conclusion that is good but might not be worth the patience needed to get there. There is a great psychedelic theme song and 70s style nightclub dancing. Peter Crushing is wasted here but Vincent Price and Christopher Lee get more scenes to chew on. It's a novel premise that hints at much more than what happens on screen, the type of thing that would be near impossible for any other movie to clone and rare for the pulp to come off as serious as it does here. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing
126. Tag (2015, 85 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Starts with epic bloody carnage before parading off to a series of pseudo-metaphysical nonsense punctuated by more bloody carnage. It's like a gorey Japanese spin on The Matrix with arterial spray and pondering on free will versus fate in terms of shaping reality and identity. Like a one person chase sequence I cannot decide if it's a setback that Tag lacks plot or if abstract and weird enough to not need one. For as many ideas that resonate there any number of plot holes, shortcuts, or just irreverent sight gags. Format: Digital [Netflix]. 1st Viewing Theme
127. Don't Knock Twice (2016, 93 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Occasionally scary generic cursing witch film that managers to out-Insidious some of the Insidious sequels. Don't break much new group (or even really rip off Insidious, not sure why I said that), but there are some moments that are fantastic (like a bleeding tooth in the woman's soup dinner). One character is a sculptor whose husband is randomly rich ensuring there is all assortment of odd figures to jump scare through or stand-in as plausible red herrings across a overly garish estate because that's not a cheap plot/scare device. I like to think of this as being called 'The Gnarly Thing in the Hall Might Be a Statue,' but that wouldn't account for all the family drama with a the lead's pregnant estranged mom as they get to work out their issues at least until the witch gets them, or doesn't, I just want it to stop making the camera leer over dark hallways with implied supernatural presences (how can one house have so much hallway). Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Theme

October 19 [USA Up All Night Theme Night] (0 hours, 0 minutes watched)
128. The Toxic Avenger (1984, 82 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Troma gets a bad rap; with Toxie Avenger the humor is hit or miss but it's a captivating mix of bizarre corny violence. It's brilliant how the hideous monster is the hero who kills the true villain at the end of the movie, hardly an original concept but the Toxie Avenger makes a fun antihero updating Frankenstein for the 80s even if some of the setup is too extreme. The setup is a little overlong, it seems like they're using violence to justify Toxie's violence later as perhaps less extreme. The character extremes are probably the weakest part of Toxic Avenger, the bad guys aren't just bad they're gleefully ridiculous slipping into what must be parody but to a near constant degree it's an assault on the viewer. Format: Digital [Amazon Prime Video]. Theme Subset
129. Remote Control (1988, 88 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Surreal now dated film about a video tape that seems to make people kill others seeming to tap into social commentary of the time about violence in films or television in general somehow impacting people's dispositions. An intelligent film, like Lieberman's Blue Sunshine, lampoons the routines of domestic life into something insidious and turns scifi cheese into something darker. Format: Blu-ray. 1st Viewing Theme
130. Pyewacket (2017, 90 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ One melancholy film, despite some plot holes it perfectly captures a dread sense of paranoia and subtle but creepy fear. A slow burn you'd have to be in the mood for it. Format: Digital [Hulu].1st Viewing
131. Lights Out (2016, 81 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Wanted to give LO another chance in UHD, it's a very good premise ruined by over explanation and hanging on thin characters that twist this into a family drama with horror elements. The idea of creatures in the dark is a rich one that I hope can be revisited soon with a better script. UHD looks good so the too many scenes of a girl fighting with her 'boyfriend,' CPS, and mom are glorious if you can get into it. Format: Digital [Vudu 4K].
132. Terrified (2017, 87 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Scary film with some great imagery and an unconventional approach to some of the horror, a favorite so far this month. It feels like it paints itself into a corner but does so in such a great way. Format: Digital [Shudder HD]. 1st Viewing
132. Revenge (2017, 108 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Vibrant film with great landscapes and tons of syrupy looking blood. It is beautifully shot but none of the characters are especially likeable and it didn't strike me other than as a minor 'most dangerous game' vibe. The crew immediately splits up and engages in a series of one on one skirmishes. I feel like there are movies more action packed and/or more lurid that engaged me more and this production was almost too sleek, like a super glossy model headshot when most horror is newsprint resulting in a strange super bright vibe that clashed with the straightforward blood letting.Format: Digital [Shudder HD]. 1st Viewing
133. Followers (2017, 82 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Inane for the first part, which might have been part of a strange commentary about social media. I feel like my YouTube brainwashed kids would have gotten more out of this and that I'm not the target audience. The commentary was mostly of the most obvious literal variety and there were a few twists that were nonsensical but fun and could do with fast forwarding to the middle at least. Format: Digital [Amazon Prime Video]. 1st Viewing
134. Little Evil (2017, 95 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Not the horror comedy I was looking for, lacks the wit that you would think a premise as interesting would have filled with jokes that miss more than they hit. Most of the 'funnies' are based on stepdad who grimaces and responds with a subdued ironic 'what am i doing here' to everything so feels like a one note character, not unlike Adam Sandler films. The biblical apocalypse kept me from tuning out as much and things eventaully come together more but it always feels like they're playing it too safe.Format: Digital [Amazon Prime Video].1st Viewing
134. Night of Something Strange (2016, 94 minutes) ★½✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Potentially cool sexually transmitted zombie virus theme gets knocked down to low brow 'comedy' standards with the most obnoxious material - they somehow manage to cram more references to menstruation per minute than should be possible.Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing

October 20 [VHS Rental / Prism Entertainment Theme Night] (0 hours, 0 minutes watched)
135. Evil Toons (1992, 81 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Great mix of sleaze, horror tropes, and upbeat cheese; ET is nicely self aware and the humor stands out. The soundtrack does a lot to keep the tone up and is better than average. The 'toon' doesn't show up much at all but Fred Olen Ray seems to understand no one is really in it for evil cartoons and it's a fun twist on demonic possession. Between David Carradine, Dick Miller, and Madison this is pretty star studded. Madison is not a great actress but her awkward stilted performance works perfectly to suggest possession and I am assuming that is purposeful. It's campy and amazing. Format: Blu-ray [Fred Olen Ray signed edition]. Theme Subset
136. Blood Rage [Composite Cut] (1987, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Bloody and cheap with tongue-in-cheek humor. Format: Blu-ray [Arrow Limited Edition]. 1st Viewing Theme
137. Slice (2018, 83 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Stylish mystery thriller with an intentional oddness of which supernatural elements are a part of, this sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. It's subtle humor is pizza delivery gag based with comedy so matter of fact it's magical realism more than laugh out loud. It's got a bumping sync score and throws a ton of supernatural fractions together, not especially scary but atmospheric in spades and a great conclusion. Format: Digital [Amazon Prime]. 1st Viewing Theme
138. Hereditary (2018, 127 minutes) ★½✰ Slow with some brutal segments and a focus on grief, but tips it hat early on about themes with a school teacher discussing if things are more tagic if intentional or out of one's control. One victim mirrors her own death early on suggesting there's more to the plot and it unravels with a great slow burn. Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing Subset139. It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958, 69 minutes) ★½✰ Rubber suit creature precusor to Alien that's dated and . Format: Digital [Vudu HD]. 1st Viewing

Re: The 14th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa



Sep 30th
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


1.) Carnival Of Souls (1962) (DVD)

My Thoughts: Dredging up the Carnival of Souls mainstay again for my Criterion theme hit. I am going to have to invest a little in a wider variety of Criterion horror since this theme doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I last watched this for the 2013 OHMC and mused about opting for the cheapo DVD version compared to the Criterion. Since then Criterion has released a Blu-Ray and I have acquired a 4K tv and I think I could see myself upgrading this, it would be nice to really see what is going on. It's a shame that there is not a historian commentary track on that release though. I previously noted this as "required viewing material for any horror fan but not necessarily required owning material", and that is an opinion I still hold. This isn't going to do it for Joe Sixpack between viewings of The Conjuring 5 and the 4th Halloween reboot but is an interesting view for devoted fans of the genre. Also oddly relaxing to watch compared to something more mainstream.

(3 out of 5)


B1.) Hofbrau: Oktoberfest (Germany)

My Thoughts: Shedding it's usual green bottle for a brown one this year didn't do anything to make this Hofbrau taste any better. This somewhat unholy Heineken Oktoberfest hybrid has a sharp crisp hoppy scent. It still has that indicative green bottle zing to it with a somewhat unpleasant lingering bitter aftertaste. It's light and progressively drinkable as it warms but I am not a fan. Perhaps if paired with some cheese...

(2.5 out of 5)

Oct 1st
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


2.) Lifeforce (Director's Cut) (1985) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Lifeforce, the best genre movie that no one has ever seen. Finally upgraded my old picture boxed DVD to the new Shout Factory Special Edition. This is my first viewing of the Directors Cut and I have to say I am hard pressed to see where the addition is, everything feels equally as important. It's a quarter hour well integrated. This is a movie I can't recommend enough, it's got everything; derelict alien space ships, vampires, zombie mayhem, gratuitous nudity and of course a choice roll for Sir Patrick Stewart. Can't wait to listen to the commentaries next!

(5 out of 5)


3.) Commentary For Lifeforce (Director's Cut) (1985) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Slightly above average moderated track featuring the director Tobe Hooper. This track shined when it was Hooper talking about working with Patrick Stewart or him more frequently talking about Matilda and various aspects of her undress. An interesting aside was the story how they had originally had her completely waxed thinking it would make her seem "less naked", an interesting and very contemporary to the period idea. Only thing that detracted a bit here was the moderator was just a little too overly enthusiastic and seemed to frequently just gush about the movie and didn't seem to have the track planned out at all. I would have loved to have a more historian take on this property. I am oddly curious about this track by the.. costume designer? I mean that can't be worth wild... right? Perhaps something to look forward to in the future.

4.) Ghoulies II (1988) (DVD)

My Thoughts: Oh man, its been so so long since I have seen this that it was almost like a first time view for me. I have had this flipper disc since the dawn of DVD and can remember going back to watch it several times but always falling asleep during the first Ghoulies and then I guess never continuing onto the second movie. My memory of the first Ghoulies was a somewhat sorcerer at home with puppets affair. This takes the puppets, moves them to carnival and cranks the quality and the cheese way up. The Ghoulies sneak into a nearly shut down haunted house (which is nicer than any haunted house I have ever been in) and proceed to run amok and its great. I mean it's terrible but it's great, low budget 80's gold. I would very confidently peg this as the best second tier Gremlins Rip off.

(4 out of 5)


5.) Blood Of Ghastly Horror (1967) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: I let my daughter pick the movie and she picked Blood Of Ghastly Horror. Obviously for the amazing cover art as opposed to the reason I bought it (it's peculiar release and re-release and re-release history). For anyone not in the know, this is the movie that was famously released by director Al Adamson 3 times, each successive release adding additional newly shot scenes that don't really integrate well. The movie is a muddled mess but my daughter says "I think it was a great movie, that was very great and scary" in reality she was bored and wandered off most of the time, only returning when kill music started playing. Aside from being hard to follow the movie is also poorly shot and acted, in fact this would be a contender for a 1 out of 5 normally but it's unique history and its at least interesting constant incongruity deserve at least another half star bump.

(1.5 out of 5)


6.) The Maze (1953) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: An otherwise forgettable movie saved from continued obscurity due only to its having been filmed in 3D. The movie has a great set up; it's about a man who inherits an eccentric uncles mysterious castle. After going there to see whats what he posts a letter breaking off his engagement and essentially removing himself from society. His bride to be is having none of it though and decides to see first hand whats going on up at that castle. The mystery of the castle makes for an effective plot device but the reveal is such a huge let down as to be laughably bad, compelling only in the fact that it is based on what was once accepted science. For 3D enthusiasts only.

(2.5 out of 5)

Oct 3rd
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


7.) Jaws 3D (1983) (Blu-Ray)

My Thoughts: I never knew everyone hated this movie growing up. It seemed just as relevant a sequel to me than any other franchise but for the fact I hardly ever saw it, maybe 2-3 times in 30 years. Watching it now I still think its a good "sequel" and if we are being entirely honest it's one of the more entertaining of the Jaws movies, not in quality but in that things are constantly happening and we have young happy characters with way less of the introspective drama. Similarly to The Maze I also bought this for the 3D and also watched it in 2D so my daughter could enjoy. So I can still only guess that the effects work better in 3D, I am sure I will revisit it sometime, because in 2D they don't work. They are weird and somewhat off-putting. But a sexy mother McFly and a young Dennis Quaid having fun in an ever so slightly futuristic (for the time) Sea World makes for a passable film in my book.

(3 out of 5)


B2.) Clown Shoes: Octofest German-Style Märzen Ale (Massachusetts)

My Thoughts: x

(x out of 5)

Oct 4th
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


8.) Cult Of Chucky (2017) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Everyone said the last Chucky movie was a return to form and finally good again. That was not an opinion that I also held, it wasn't terrible but was bland. This one however even with it's story arc continuation from curse was a step up. Sole survivor of last movie having been blamed for the crimes of the previous movie finds herself locked up in an insane asylum. The cleanest and most stylish insane asylum I have ever seen, like 'I wouldn't mind if my house looked like that' stylish. They bring in a Chucky doll for therapy and you can probably mostly cobble the rest together yourself. This one played much better for me than Curse, I even laughed at a few of the jokes (especially the 4th wall ones) and was awed by some of the over the top gore in the Unrated version. The narrative does start to fall apart in the final act when it's tied back into the series as a whole but it is a step in the right direction. And at least they are still doing sequels instead of reboots.

(3.5 out of 5)


9.) Hell Fest (2018) (Theater)*

My Thoughts: This movie is standard slasher fair, it has group of young college students that go horror themed park where they are picked off one by one by the one person there that isn't acting. It's passable as a slasher but thats not really why you are watching it, you are watching it for setting. This vast and amazing horror theme park that is better than anything you will ever go to. At least I can only imagine that that is the case comparing this movie to horror events I have gone to here in Oklahoma. It scratches that horror itch, and them some. Also loved the ending sting.

(3.5 out of 5)


10-12.) Ash Vs. The Evil Dead S01E01-10 (2015-2016) (Blu-Ray)

My Thoughts: Loved the continuation of Ash's narrative. And smarmy Ash as a now dirty old man really works for the character. Evil Dead IV has Ash inadvertently summoning the evil again and out on a mission to stop it. I had planned to wait and watch the next two seasons till after I (most likely) bought them this upcoming Black Friday but after revisiting this I don't think I can wait. I have to find out how Ash's bad choices turn out. Only real quibble is I wish he had dropped a line or two about going back in time to fight the Deadites... maybe in the next 2 seasons.

(3.5-4.5 out of 5)


13.) The Bone Yard (1991) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: You ever look at a poster for a movie for years and have this vision in your head of exactly what it's going to be, and then you watch it and your head explodes? That was this movie. This movie starts out with the weirdest cast, people who would never peg to headline a film and they are in what feels like an episode of Murder She Wrote for the first act. Things quickly turn a lot more Revenge of Billy The Kid as the movie progresses in the most fun way. I picked up the old Cult Collectables DVD from the dawn of the format not knowing that there was a Blu-Ray release on the horizon but I think this is something worth an upgrade. In fact pretty much everything released from that label really worked for me, too bad they went under.

(4 out of 5)

Oct 5th
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


14.) Deadtime Stories (1986) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: My expectations for this 80's horror anthology were waaaaaaay too high. This felt acted and paced like a movie for kids but then had these odd sexual sequences that felt more like they were in their for time as opposed to exploitation. It made The Willies look like Cat's Eye, skip it. The highpoint was literally the opening credits, I even went back to watch them again and am now going to have to download that song. But it is going to be quite some time before I ever revisit the bulk of this picture.

15.) Day Of The Dead: Bloodline (2018) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: Nothing more sets you up for failure than doing a low budget remake of a beloved classic. There was no way the hard ass military leader of the compound was going to even come close to comparing to an on the edge of sanity Joe Pilato. Or the Bub equivalent played by the lead singer from That Thing You Do. The idea behind this movie is to be a remake of Day in the same way as the successful Dawn remake in 04. And while I am fairly forgiving when it comes to zombie movies the wooden acting and the changes made to the zombie mythos really killed this one for me.

(2 out of 5)


16.) The Curse (1987) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: The Curse stars a young Will Wheaton as a boy living on a farm when a meteor crashes contaminating the groundwater and causing everything and everyone to go crazy. Its hard to tell if this is a bad movie or if it's intentionally cheesy. There are a lot of acting choices that are hard to watch, approaching Troll II levels of quality, add to that some pretty bad effects and you would think initially that this one was a clinker. But there is something oddly watchable about this one. It's almost like I am watching a play or a tv show, something very amateur but genuine.

17.) Monster Squad (1987) (DVD)

My Thoughts: I didn't discovered this movie until I was an adult and as such never really got into as much as I knew I would have as a kid. That is something I am rectifying this time though as I made sure my daughter was available to watch. Love that we get most of the Universal classic monsters in here and some great 80's adventure and songs to boot. That reminds me I need to add "Rock Until You Drop" to my collection. It does sometimes veer a little too much for kids (like Dracula taking the time to blow up some kids tree house with dynamite) but it's got a few things for adults too (Doesn't count?!?!). I look forward to repeated viewings of this title as my daughter grows up and maybe it will even gateway some actual Universal classics for her.

(4 out of 5)


18-20.) Ash Vs. The Evil Dead S02E01-10 (2016) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: I wasn't really a fan of the first half of this season. Ash's sad ostracization and expulsion from his home town after the events at the cabin detracted a little bit from the asshole I love, gave him to much reason to be the man we know, also it was depressing. Now the last 2 arc are something I can get behind. We have the genre classic; stuck in an insane asylum and maybe the whole series is in my head! And a 80's time traveling reboot attempt. They made the last 2 episode sets almost seem like 2 little movies and I thought that worked well for the show. One thing that it is getting hard tome creative with is the ultra gore. There are two gore moments that make you go wow in this season but watching this straight thru desensitizes you in a hurry.

(3-4 out of 5)

21.) Venom (2018) (Theater)*

My Thoughts: Not nearly as bad as the internet would lead you to believe. People as so quick to forget the dark times, namely any super hero movie that came out before 2008. Venom struck me as a particularly average super hero movie, but still enjoyable and certainly a step up from the oddly slender Venom of Spiderman 3. One is left feeling that there is a lot of missing elements here (and probably quite a bit of fun cut when minds were changed from R to PG-14) but it's an enjoyable ride. I liked the evil Elon Musk as a villain even though it culminated in a predictably derivative hero vs similar larger creature. I wouldn't mind this Venom being part of the MCU but he is almost too nice and I can't really see him decided that Spiderman must die. Decent DBox track and I look forward to picking up the 3D blu here in the future (maybe as an extended cut Sony?).

(3 out of 5)


22.) Cube (1997) (DVD)

My Thoughts: Good ol' Cube, a staple of the Sci Fi Channel in the early days. Cube has a great premise; put a group of people inside a giant puzzle box with traps. Will they work together? Will they go crazy? Maybe a little of both? I spent a lot of time thinking about this movie in the late 90's. It's pretty dated now and my DVD is a dreaded picture boxed presentation of it but it is still an entertaining watch and a sci-fi classic in my book. Also the movie that Resident Evil totally ripped off.

(4 out of 5)


23.) Cube²: Hypercube (2002) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: It's Nick from Forever Knight! Loved the progression of his character, in fact most of the characters in this one were somewhat more interesting than the original but they went way overboard with the sci-fi this time. The thing that was the most interesting about the first one was that it was practical, not that anyone would but that it technically could be built. This one has alternate timelines/physics/CG traps and is just much less based in reality than the first movie. Not that those things don't make for some entertaining TV, it's just less than it's predecessor as most sequels are.

(3 out of 5)


24.) Angel Heart (1987) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Mickey Rourke plays a perpetually boozed up and sweat drenched private investigator hired to find a man out of time. But the closer he gets the more people wind up dead. I really liked this movie and the reveal. Interesting take on Voodoo and mysticism intermingled with a few other belief sets. Thank you to whoever mentioned this on the board, I am sure it made it's way on my Wishlist during this challenge some years ago and now into my brain. Probably the most interesting movie set in the 40's that I have ever seen not based on WWII.

25.) The Blackcoat's Daughter (2015) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: If you liked The VVitch but hoped for a more contemporary setting, this is the movie for you. This is a slow burn murder/demon mystery set in a deserted girl boarding school with the two girls and few staff members remaining during winter break. And even though the setting is very familiar this doesn't feel like any other girls reformatory you have seen in other horror movies, the film maker does a great job of sucking all the life out of this place and making it so desperately barren. I reminded me of the The Thing in that way and it does a good job of making the reveals very creepy. It is something you have to be in the right mood for, no sounds, no distractions otherwise it will not play, but you get it in that right setting and it is very effective.

26.) Commentary For The Blackcoat's Daughter (2015) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Very slow laid back track, matching in tempo with the film. Some interesting remembrances here about working with the actors and maybe a hair more light shed on the plot. But the track did lack a bit of spice and I would have loved at least one other person on it, preferably an actor.

27.) Nightmare Weekend (1986) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: What the fuck did I just watch? So…. A rich scientist has invented a futuristic computer program that uses large flying baoding balls (the Chinese meditation ball bearings) to control the mental state of animals. His crazy assistant wants to use the balls on people and invites several couples to the mansion they do their work out of and has the balls make everyone have sex (for seriously like half an hour) and then kill everyone. Oh and there is an AI sock puppet… Its nearly incomprehensible but it does deliver on the violence, boobs and the 80’s so at least it wasn’t boring. I just.. I just don’t know. I think I liked it?

28.) The Purge: Election Year (2016) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Continuing with the more action centric style of the second Purge movie Election year focused on the political assassination attempt of an anti-purge presidential candidate. Loved the sexy assassin squad and the ever so slight sci-fi-ness of the world. Similar to Mayhem the no-consequenses nature of narrative is intreating but I fear I have far too many quality enemies to not have to bunker up on Purge day.

29.) Burial Ground (1980) (Blu-Ray)

My Thoughts: This is the first time I have watched this film since my very first OCHM. One thing I really noticed this time as compared to when I watched it 8 years ago was that castle setting, so fancy, even a little run down as it was. Burial Ground is not an especially good film but it has made it's self a must watch in the genre due to it's over the top gore, odd dubbing and super weird incestual scenes. Did I really need to upgrade this to Blu-Ray...?

30.) Mayhem (2017) (4K UMD)*

My Thoughts: I kind of loved this movie. Glen from The Walking Dead plays a ground down corporate suit thrown under the bus for someone else mistake. Just as he is being forcibly thrown out of the building the entire office is placed under quarantine as a mild form of The Crazies virus sweeps the staff. Glen teams up with Samantha Weaving (who I am seeing in everything lately) and fights his way to the top floor Dredd style. Loved the style, musical choices and of course the no consequences day dream about sticking it to the man is extremely cathartic. Only negative about this movie is you do kind of see the sides of the story but it's a fun story.

31.) Frankenstein's Castle Of Freaks (1974) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: Hey it's the DVD that Chad helped me sang for $0.96 shipped! I probably should have made a better choice with that coupon though. First off Elvira, she is of course the reason one would buy this movie, these Movie Macabre's are never good but man this one seemed especially bad. Or perhaps I just wasn't in the right mood. All the ingredients were here; Frankenstein-esk creatures, copious nudity, a lusty dwarf but I just couldn't get into it. Maybe if the Elvira scenes had been clear? Did they do that for style make her look like a VHS transfer or is this from a VHS transfer? It was a little disappointing, I am teetering back and forth on wither to spend the money to get one of these legit Thriller VHS tapes with Elvira just to see how those stack up. On Frankenstein's Castle Of Freaks I recommend skipping it or at least getting the double pack if you are really wanting the Elvira.

32.) Happy Death Day (2017) (Blu-Ray)

My Thoughts: I saw this for the 2017 OHMC and while I don't usually rewatch non-Marvel movies so close to the original viewing I couldn't pass up watching the one again. Also there was nothing else in my 'to watch' pile that was birthday centric and it was the subset choice, so I kind of had to. What's new to say this time around? The disc comes with an alternate ending that while it does have a fun wrap around isn't quite as strong as the ending they went with. Really with we had a lead actress commentary. The movie its self holds up for me and I am very down for the planned sequel scheduled for next Valentine's day.

33.) Lost After Dark (2015) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: This Post-Stranger Things 80's set cash in follows a group of students who duck out during a school dance and steal a bus so that they can go stay the night at a cabin in the woods. Their bus never makes it though. This movie is appropriate paces, propped and set but is completely ruined by the terrible terrible acting. Even from headliner Robert Patrick who just feels like he is reading off cue cards. Generic lone murder family survivor picks off the stranded teens one by one but it's never really that interesting outside the 80's props. And I am a sucker for nostalgia projects.

34.) The Nun (2018) (Theater)*

My Thoughts: Jump Scare: The Movie. This 5th movie in the Conjuring universe is starting to get a hair thin. But we at least get a travelogue horror with this one. Set following WWII this tale is about an ancient evil sealed by the Holy-ness built atop it... until now. There was lots of creepiness here but I never really felt it like I did in The Conjuring and to a lesser extent its sequel. The scares were too frequent and too over the top, they lost their ground in reality (says the guy talking about a Ghost Nun movie). I know it's not super uncommon but the MacGuffin here felt right like it was out of Demon Knight (even house they use it) and otherwise this movie borrows heavily from Argento's The Church. Not a bad movie and I loved the cast but could have used a little more polish.

35.) 31 (2016) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: I liked the script flip on this one, I came in expecting another Sheri Moon and Capitan Spaulding torture porn outing. But I was elated to find our usual suspects as the victims this go around. This time we are following a group of, still unpleasant, carnies as they travel to the next town to preform their shows again. They are besieged and captured just in time to be pitted against an escalating assortment of killers for the amusement of a bunch of rich weridos. There was something about no one being normal in this that just made it play better for me than Zombie's previous two outings. A littler less visceral perhaps but a lot more palatable.

36.) Dead Shadows (2012) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: Another one of those sneaky French horror movies. I don't know how these things keep getting me. I am not opposed to a good foreign film but French horror for the most part doesn't really connect for me. This one is about an introverted IT phone support guy (with an awesome room) who must overcome his fears of being in public to woo the girl. Also just about that time there is an alien invasion. The goopy hide inside you kind of aliens. The CG in this movie seems to be about a decade older than the film, I never really liked any of the characters and overall just didn't really find it a compelling watch. Beware fellow bargain hunters, I know it is tempting with that super low price and the Scream Factory logo on the side but this one is a solid pass.

(2 out of 5)


37.) Here Alone (2016) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: This slow burn budget zombie survival flick set maybe a few years into the breakdown follows a woman alone in the woods. Our story is set with flash backs and the arrival of other living people and of course we all know how that always messes everything up. I like the smell based mechanics and am always a fan of the undead but the world felt a little too small here. It felt like we were stuck in about a 2 mile circle the entire time. Passable but unremarkable.

(3 out of 5)


38.) The Ring (2003) (DVD)

My Thoughts: The Ring has still got it, for me at least. It's weird watching this in the same day as the Nun, the Nun for the first time and The Ring for like the 10th time. But still I found The Ring to be much more effective horror. Slight possibility that watching this in the dead of night vs watching The Nun at the early morning matinee might have has a bit of sway, but only a touch. Additionally I always liked the American adaptation more than the original, and I am usually a snob for Asian originals. This movie came out towards the end of high school and everyone saw it, for weeks people were leaving mysterious VHS tapes lying around and calling people only to say "seven days" and then hang up. It was the Paranormal Activity of my time. I still have a deep connection to The Ring and even after 15 years it still creeps me out.

40.) Hocus Pocus (1993) (Blu-Ray)

My Thoughts: The 90's kids Halloween movie. I live everyone else in my generation have seen this probably 10+ times, It was played on ever channel on loop growing up during Halloween. There is just enough in the way of horror staples and decent effects here to work for genre fans but not too much as to scare off those who can't handle a horror movies. It might seem a little too slick now but growing up everything looked so real, and then when I did grow up there was SJPs performance to enjoy. Good first time view for my daughter and helps easy my conscious a little after her watching perhaps too much of Cult Of Chucky and Burial Ground.

My Thoughts: A young amateur magic finds a gateway to a.... demon realm(?) in his basement. He then soon starts seeing ghosts and befriending them only to have said demons out to get said ghosts. Also they want to release evil ghost into the world on Halloween? It was terrible. Acting, plot, effects, all terrible. But I have got to say it did transfix my 4 year old. She seemed just as interested in this as I would a good Giallo. That being said it was sub-TV quality and even a huge step down from the other R.L. Stine movie I got on clearance and watched last challenge.

49.) I Saw The Devil (2010) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: One of the most beautiful yet shockingly violent movies in my collection. This title has been languishing in my 'to watch' pile for about half a decade, looking back I picked it up under the old Best Buy Trade And Save program (man I miss that promotion), and finally escaped for highest rated IMDB theme night. It's about a police officer who's fiancé is murdered and he sets out for revenge. Murderer played by the amazing actor that was the lead in Old Boy and heralded by the director from Tale Of Two Sisters this one is a must see and an early contender for me for best of challenge.

50.) Jack The Ripper (1959) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: A more classic take on Jack The Ripper. This kind of movie is not really my bag but I am a sucker for limited edition items so I had to pick one up this last Black Friday. This movie feels much like an earlier 30-40's affair with just a hair more to the violence and sexuality then something done at that time. The old timey London setting was spot on and there was one particular scene where our mains go to a establishment of ill repute in the bad part of town and watch a can can show that was fascinating. Having only seen more modern slicker versions of the can can I wonder how close this was in historical accuracy. The movie was passable but a bit of a bore, not something that I plan on replaying anytime soon.

51.) Cargo (2016) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: A solid low budget zombie movie that tweaks the mythos just enough to be interesting but not enough to be off-putting. Martin Freeman plays a father who has been bitten and now must find someone he can trust to leave his child too before it is too late. Australian outback is a great setting for the zombie apocalypse and yeah I think the Aborigines probably would be just fine. Freeman give a fantastic performance and even though the movie sounds like a real downer it's not. One bit I particularly liked was the red-cross style distributed kits on what to do if you have been bitten with tools and maps of high contagion areas, a fantastic little detail. Society stuck around just long enough to try to get a grip on the situation. Good watch.

53.) The Birds (1963) (Blu-Ray)

My Thoughts: One would be hard pressed to say anything new about The Birds at this point. Sure the effects are a little dated in places and the science is a bit... But it is a classic that has stood the test of time. The weird interpersonal stuff, the mounting fear that Hitchcock creates out of a flock of birds. It's just so foreboding, that final cut back to the Jungle Gym, the way the gas just keeps spreading and spreading, the door. Its been a bit since I have seen it and I was surprised at just how long and brutal the attack scenes are, they just keep going and going and not in a bad way. Is this the first time a home is boarded up and laid siege to in film? There is a lot of small featurettes on this disc but one glaring hole is the lack of a historian commenter on this movie. I wonder, will people be saying this same thing in 60 years about The Meg?

54-58.) The Haunting Of Hill House (2018) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: This made me feel the entire gamut of human emotions, I feel like I am a better person for having watched it. And nothing has ever made me want to have a huge family more than watching this movie. I know it's a 'TV series' but lets get real its a 10 hour movie. This is everything that American Horror Story should have been, if American Horror story didn't have to hook you at the end of every episode so you would tune in next week. The non-linear story follows a family both in the present and 30 years ago when they move into a very haunted house. The house is epic and beautiful as all haunted houses should be (no one want to watch a movie about a haunted split level) but what I really loved is that they didn't anthropomorphize the house, it didn't try to eat people or fill rooms up with blood, it was just an evil place. I was set on giving this a 4.5 up until the ending but then I knew I had to give it a perfect score. Even so there were a couple of small things they could have fixed; the contacts the young father wore to look like the older actor were super distracting and sometimes the sight gags were too obvious but they were minor quibbles in what was a generally fantastic viewing experience.

- All first time viewings, unless indicated by a *.
- I'm on iCM: http://www.icheckmovies.com/profile/mightysparks/
- TSZDT: https://theyshootzombies.com/
- Trying to get through some of this https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/h.../mightysparks/

2010: 28
2011: 176
2012: 306
2013: 182
2014: 158
2015: 144
2016: 43 (dropped out)
2017: 12 (dropped out, I guess, I don't even remember)

October 1
1. Krysar (1986) 7/10
Review/comments: Story is a bit of a drag at times, but there are some beautiful rhythmic montages in there. Really interesting animation and bleak world.

2. Chasing Sleep (2000) 7/10
Review/comments: Great hazy atmosphere.

October 6
3. Brain Dead (1990) 6/10
Review/comments: Outdated and super campy, sometimes fun but sometimes just a big groan-fest.

4. Mandy (2018) 6/10
Review/comments: Some if it was really intense, but it just wasn't believably angry enough for me to be completely drawn in.

October 7
5. The Damned (1962) 6/10
Review/comments: Catchy theme song, and interesting but all over the place.

6. Combat Shock (1984) 6/10
Review/comments: Good in an off-kilter kind of way, but it's amateurish is also what holds it back.

October 9
7. See No Evil (2006) 5/10
Review/comments: Liked how mean-spirited it was, but awful set of characters.

8. Carry on Screaming! (1966) 6/10
Review/comments: Oddly charming and enjoyable. I found Kenneth Williams way more fun to watch than I expected.

Re: The 14th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa

Back to hit a hundred !.

Total Viewings: 71 | First Time Viewings ***: 41 | Blu Ray: 52 | DVD: 6 | Streaming: 13 |


September 30th

1.Straw Dogs (1971) 9/10 - Exceptional rape/revenge thriller along the lines of Last House on the Left. Blu Ray. ***

2.Hour of the Wolf (1968) 7/10 - Fascinating look at the mental torment of an artist turned killer. Always interesting, but confusing at times. DVD ***

3. Love Me Deadly (1973) 6.5/10 - A deranged woman can only love the dead. Lyle Wagner with his ascot is a hoot. Unrated cut is pretty graphic. Blu Ray. ***

October 1st

4. Cat People (1942) 7/10. - Atmospheric psychological thriller. Tame by today's standards. Simone Simon was perfectly cast. DVD

5. Curse of the Cat People (1944) 6/10. - Direct sequel to Cat People is decidedly more tame than the original, without much of the atmosphere or tension. DVD.

6. Dressed to Kill (1980) 8/10. - Sylish slasher from DePalma with great acting from Angie Dickinson, M. Caine and Nancy Allen. Blu Ray

7. Lifeforce (1985) - 8/10. - Greatest set of breasts in movie history - nuff said. It's a great movie and one that Tobe Hooper does not get enough recognition. Blu Ray.

8. Flora (2017) 6.5/10 - Interesting concept centers around a deadly organism inhabiting plant life. Thin story line and spotty acting pull this one down a bit. Blu Ray ***

October 2nd

9. Blue Sunshine (1977) 7.5/10.A cautionary tale about the dangers of drug use. over the top story by Jeff Leiberman. Great story, well acted. Blu Ray.

10. Dagon (2001) 7/10. - ship wrecked travelers unwittingly end up on an island of fish people. This one grows on me with repeat viewings. Blu Ray

11. Resident Evil (2002) 5/10. - zombie infection video game. silly, but entertaining if your in the right mood. Blu Ray

October 3rd

12. Blood Harvest (1987) 4/10 - Blood Harvest commits the Slasher film sin of too many talky scenes and not enough kills. A painful endurance test of bad acting. Tiny Tim was the exception. Shudder.***

13. Blood Beach (1980) 3/10. - Brutal exercise in tedium. An artichoke monster inhabits the beach. Youtube.***

14. Piranha II: The Spawning (1981) 5/10. - Mutated Flying Piranha intended for Vietnam get loose on a resort. Silly , with lots of pointless characters and filler scenes. Blu Ray ***

15. Resident Evil:Apocalypse (2004) 6/10. - Picked up right where the first film ends, which i do like in a franchise. I thought the story was a bit more coherent than the initial film. Entertaining action film, but not very memorable. Blu Ray.

16. Devil Fish (1984) 7/10. - A prehistoric shark terrorizes a fishing community. Italian cheese goodness. Monster effects worked. A number of subplots that didn't go anywhere (ie, filler) brought the film down, but overall a very fun watch. Blu Ray ***

October 4th

17. The Sadist of Notre Dame (1979) 7.5/10. - Jess Franco masterpiece that deals with a psychotic priest who kills women of loose morals. Blu Ray

18. The Sleeper (2012) 7/10 - The Sleeper is an 80's throwback film and such a good one that i initially thought this was a slasher from the early 80s. Totally had me fooled. Some brutal kills with a hammer in this one. The film is let down by a few cliches and plot holes but overall very enjoyable. Blue Ray ***

October 5th

19. The Rape of the Vampire (1968) 6.5-7/10 - Surreal, erotic vampire film by Jean Rollin. At times incoherent, but always fascinating to watch. Blu Ray

20. The Blood Splattered Bride (1971) 7/10 - Spanish adaptation of the Carmilla La Fanu story which the Hammer Karnstein trilogy most famously brought to screen. Very good story and gruesome at times.Blu Ray ***

October 6th

21. Kwaidan (1964) 9/10 - A masterpiece of story-telling. Probably the best Japanese Ghost Anthology ever made. At three hours plus, it probably could be trimmed down a bit. Blu Ray

22. Down (2001) 7/10.Reboot of "The Lift". Entertaining and creative idea around killer elevators. Blu Ray

October 7th

23. Burial Ground (1980) 8/10.This is just a bat shit crazy zombie flick. It has it all, including zombies using table saws and garden tools. Its a shame that Petro Barzocchini (Michael) did not have much of an acting career (only 5 credits) Blu Ray

24. American Psycho 2 (2002) 5/10. - Lame follow up to the classic film. The comedy / teen girl angle doesn't work for me. Streaming ***

25. Dr. Cyclops (1940) 7/10.Along with the Incredible Shrinking Man, the best of the Sci Fi "people shrinking films". Albert Dekker was fantastic as Cyclops. The use of color really added to the effects. streaming.

October 8th

26. A Candle for the Devil (1973) 6.5/10 - two sisters kill off tenants of their boarding house who they believe are promiscuous. Blu Ray ***

27. Slugs (1988) 7/10. - Wonderful creature feature romp with some genuine horrific moments. It sounds silly and it is to some extent, but the slugs work. Blu Ray.

28. Hereditary (2018) 10/10 - a modern masterpiece of suspense and terror. A very un-nerving film. Blu Ray

October 9th

29. The Zero Boys (1986) 6/10.Another story based on "the Most Dangerous Game". This one has a lot of 80's cheese that makes it difficult to take it seriously. I think this film might resonate more had i seen it in the 80s as a young twenty-something. Streaming ***

30. Patrick (1978) 6/10. - Interesting story about telekinesis, but at 2 hours, a bit too long. Blu Ray ***

31. The House That Cried Murder (1973) 7/10 - Interesting love triangle gone bad story and genuinely creepy at times. Blu Ray ***

32. The House on the Edge of the Park (1980) 7/10 - Nasty rape/revenge film with the always fun to watch David Hess. The lullaby, dream like music of Riz Ortolani only enhances the impact. Blu Ray ***

October 10th

33. Happy Death Day (2017) 5/10 - I saw this in the theater and now at home. My feelings are the same - this is a film for a very narrow target audience -12-21 year old girls - The story is simple, the characters and actors are all young 20 somethings and the horror elements are muted. Not a bad film, but definitely not one i can recommend.Streaming

34. The Vampire and the Ballerina (1960) 6/10 - interesting gothic vampire film that gets a bit bogged down by some musical dance numbers. Blu Ray

35. Of Unknown Origin (1983) 7/10 - A compelling rat movie. Great story, great acting. Blu Ray ***

36. To Hell and Back (2017) 7/10 - Fascinating documentary about the life of Kane Hodder from childhood to burn accident to Jason. Blu Ray ***

October 11th

37. Alison's Birthday (1981) 6/10 - Australian Rosemary's Baby / Satan worship variant. Interesting, but a slow watch due to flat acting. Streaming ***

38. Cujo (1983) 7/10 - Rabid dog story. Simple, but effective for 90 minutes. DVD.

39. SuperBeast (1972) 4/10 - Super power nap. Jesus this was a tepid film. Island of Dr. Moreau on heavy morphine. Literally nothing happens for the first hour. Blu Ray ***

40. Abominable (2006) 8/10 - Thoroughly entertaining Bigfoot film. Story moves at a brisk pace and the acting was excellent. The Bigfoot payoff works as well. Blu Ray ***

October 12th

41. Dogs (1976) 6/10 - David McCallum carries this animals run amok story. The dog attacks came off pretty tame the way it was shot. Blu Ray ***

42. A Quiet Place (2018) 7.5/10 - I bumped my rating up after a second viewing. This is a unique and tense viewing experience. I still think the "flower face" monsters are all too common lately, but I like the film a lot. Blu Ray

43. Zombie Massacre 2: Reich of the Dead (2015) 6/10 - Nazi zombies, what more could you ask for? A lot actually, but this film was mindless fun. Showtime Beyond. ***

October 13th

44. Trilogy of Terror (1975) 7/10 - Excellent Dan Curtis anthology of three stories staring the always fascinating Karen Black. Blu Ray.

45. Demons (1985) 7.5/10 - Fun italian gore fest about a movie audience turning into demons. Non-stop action. Blu Ray

46. Trilogy of Terror (1996) 7/10 - A very satisfying sequel to the Dan Curtis 70's classic. Same format of three stories, with the second one being particularly terrifying. Streaming. ***

47. Inside (2007) 10/10 -A brutal, riveting gore fest about a woman's fight to save her child from a psychotic female attacker. DVD ***

October 14th

48. Return of the Living Dead Part II (1988) 7.5/10 - A reboot of the first film in my opinion. Equally as entertaining with similar storyline and characters. Silly, but a lot of fun. Blu Ray ***

49. Demons 2 (1986) 7.5/10 - Essentially a reboot or re-imagining of Demons as opposed to a sequel. Equally as entertaining and gory as the first film. Blu Ray

50. Resident Evil : Extinction (2007) 7/10 - The third in the franchise is a more story driven post apocalyptic tale. The CGI is still annoyingly bad at times , but a much better film than the initial two. Blu Ray ***

October 15th

51. The Lair of the White Worm (1988) 7.5/10 - Ken Russell puts his own unique slant on vampires with this fascinating film. Hugh Grant was an interesting choice of lead actor. Interesting and never dull, but always strange. Blu Ray ***

52. Death Valley (1982) 7/10 - Fun little slasher film with a twist ending , although the twist was easy to spot early in the film. Peter Billingsley is a really good, likable kid. Blu Ray ***

53. Giallo in Venice (1979) 6/10 - Extra sleazy giallo that emphasizes sexual deviance in it's characters over stylish killings and plot. Blu Ray ***

October 16th

54. Twisted Nightmare (1987) 2/10 - A test of your endurance and your capacity to sit through an incoherent plot, bad acting, irritating casio keyboard soundtrack and finally, a film shot in virtual total darkness. Blu Ray ***

55. Brain Dead (1990) 6/10 -Odd movie that has some great actors such as bill paxton, but i think the story simply doesn't give them much to work with. Blu Ray ***

56. The Werewolf and the Yeti (1975) 7.5/10 - Paul Naschy in a reboot of Werewolf of London. A trip to Himalayas results in a battle with a Yeti. Fun watch , nice pacing. Blu Ray.

October 17th

57. Witchhammer (1969) 7/10 - Interesting drama set in the 17th century about the catholic inquisitions. A bit long and talky, but still a good watch. Streaming. ***

58. The Blood on Satan's Claw (1971) 6/10 - Gothic British horror in the style of Hammer. A bit slow at times and the ending is a bit of a disappointment. I listened to one of the commentary tracks. Streaming.

59. Slaughter High (1986) 7/10 - Not a great slasher, but one with alot of charm. Silly at times, but what slasher film isn't? Blu Ray

60. Hunchback of the Morgue (1973) 7/10 -The hunchback is a favorite horror character of mine and i appreciate Naschy showing it some love. A gory and fun horror film. My only gripe is Naschy's minimal makeup. Blu Ray

61. Horror of Party Beach (1964) 6/10 - The Hot Dog monster terrorizes beach kids. Hilarious, bad, and lots of fun. Blur Ray

62. Movie House Massacre (Blood Theater) (1984) 3/10 - The term "inept" gets thrown around alot with horror movies, but this one earns the title. Blu Ray ***

October 18th

63. Peeping Tom (1963) 10/10 - A classic proto-slasher that is the first to expertly showcase POV shots. Unique and disturbing. Karl Boehm was outstanding in the lead role. Listened to the commentary track. Blu Ray

64. Exorcismo (1975) 6/10 - Paul Naschy cash in of the Exorcist film. Everybody and their brother was making a possession film in the mid-seventies. Naschy plays the priest. Pacing is off in this one because the meat of the story doesn't happen until the last 15 minutes. Blu Ray ***

65. My Little Eye (2002) 6/10 - group of kids stay in a surveillance house on a bet that turns into a killing spree. DVD ***

66. Enter the Devil (1972) 6/10 - Interesting independent horror film for the early 70s . A bit slow, but the characters are all fairly interesting. Blu Ray ***

October 19th - No Watches

October 20th

67. Cat People (1982) 7/10 - Interesting performances from Malcolm McDowell and Natasha Kinski, but the film drags at 2 hours. Streaming.

68. Evil Toons (1992) 6/10 - Fred Ray horror comedy about four sexy girls in a haunted house. Did not hold much hope for this one, but I found myself enjoying it. Blu Ray ***

69. New York Ripper (1982) 7.5/10 - A brutal, gory slasher film from the king Lucio Fulci. Love the film, including the duck quack! Blu Ray ***

70. The Toxic Avenger (1984) 2/10 - I have tried multiple times to get into these toxic avenger films and i just don't enjoy the humor or the silly amateur acting. streaming

71. A Dragonfly for Each Corpse (1975) 6/10 - Love Paul Naschy films, even the bad ones. This one is a clumsy giallo attempt, but not bad. Blu Ray ***

Goal: 100
TOTAL: 17
FIRST TIME VIEWS: 13
☼ indicates first time viewing
Ratings:
★★★★★
★★★★
★★★
★★


Week 1


- September 30 -

1. Mandy (2018) ★★★★½ ☼
A completely insane movie that really seemed like an acid trip. Nicolas Cage's performance was incredible, and Linus Roache matched it with an equally insane performance.

2. Trilogy of Terror (1975) ★★★½ ☼
This movie was a lot of fun, though the middle story dragged a bit. It definitely has the hallmarks of a TV-movie, but it was darker than I expected.


- October 1 -

3. Haunters: The Art of the Scare (2017) ★★★ ☼
This was definitely an interesting movie, but I feel like they repeated the same point often. I would have also preferred that it either focused on one haunted house or on many, but it seemed to try to do both, which left it a bit unfocused.

9/31/18

1) Dressed to Kill (1980) - Someone kills a psychiatrist's patient, then chases after a woman who witnessed the murder. Good cast. Hadn't seen it since sometime in the early '80s, so I had forgotten most of it.
2) Undressed to Kill (The Sexorcist) (1974) - Guy finds some old sheets of paper with stuff scribbled on them, and after he reads them, a guy in a hooded robe screws a whore who then becomes possessed and stabs a few people. Directed by Ray Dennis Steckler. Originally released as an Exorcist rip-off, and was re-titled with this rip-off title for its VHS release. This was the dick sucking-est flick I've ever seen.

10/1/18

3) Redneck Zombies (1989) - Soldier transporting a yellow barrel full of radioactive something or other loses the barrel. A backwoods family uses the barrel in their still and the resulting green moonshine turns people into zombies. This one really, really, really sucked.
4) Nazi Zombie Death Tales (Angry Nazi Zombies) (2012) - Anthology film with three stories: "Medal of Horror" - A major sends a soldier (who had jilted his daughter) behind German lines to find his kidnapped daughter. There he encounters a World War I flying ace zombie, a kamikaze zombie, and a Nazi woman and her pet robot. "Harriet's War" - Woman investigates a murder in a small village. "Devils of the Blitz" - Family attacked by some kind of Zanti Misfit type bug monster during an air raid. I expected more zombies.

10/2/18

5) Lost Lake (2012) - Guy and girl go to abandoned town to look for her uncle who had gone to the town (which is said to be haunted) to investigate a serial killer who had killed a bunch of people in the town years earlier.
6) Lake Dead (2007) - Three women inherit a motel from their grandfather. They and some friends visit the motel, then camp in the woods nearby where they are attacked and murdered by inbred, deformed mutants. I think this might've been some kind of horror movie spoof of Newhart, what with the motel, and Larry and his two brothers, Darryl and Darryl.
7) Blue Sunshine (1977) - Middle-aged former hippies begin to lose their hair, become angry, and start killing people.
8) The Vampire Conspiracy (2005) - Vampire in a frilly shirt and long black coat kidnaps six people and dumps them into a maze in a castle (I guess) which they must work their way through (while being occasionally interrupted by a group of vampires) when they aren't arguing with each other. Saw with vampires. Man was this thing a huge pile of crap.
9) Curse of the Wolf (2006) - Female werewolf controls her transformations with drugs stolen from the veterinarian's office where she works while a group of goofballs (who also happen to be werewolves) hunts her down. Sucked. Hard.

10/3/18

10) Bachelor Party in the Bungalow of the Damned (2008) - Five goofballs go to a bungalow for a bachelor party. Three unattractive hookers show up. There's some bad CGI. People die.
11) The Last Shark (L'ultimo squalo) (1981) - [B-Movie TV] - James Franciscus and Vic Morrow try to kill a shark terrorizing a coastal town. I'd seen it a few times, but it was on and it fit today's theme, so why not?
12) The Amityville Curse (1990) - [B-Movie TV] - Five people move into a house in Amityville (but not the original Amityville Horror house) where a priest who was murdered lived a dozen years earlier. Weird things happen.
13) Ils (Them) (2006) - A couple living in an isolated house are terrorized by some people.

10/4/18

14) Neon Maniacs (1986) - After some goofy looking monsters (that sort of look like Garbage Pail Kids versions of the Village People) kill some teenagers in San Francisco, a young horror movie fan tracks them to their lair beneath the Golden Gate Bridge. How is it I had never seen this slice of '80s cheese before now?
15) The Shaft (Down) (2001) - Killer elevator kills people. It was no Death Bed: The Bed That Eats (1977) or The Refrigerator (1991)...
16) Sheltered (2010) - A bunch of tourists heading into an area under a mandatory evacuation due to an approaching hurricane stop at a bar where a guy just killed the bartender. When their car won't start, the killer offers to let them stay at his place, where they are killed one by one. Better than I thought it would be.

10/5/18

17) The Craving (2008) - Five people in a van take a "shortcut" through the desert. A hermit shoots the van, stranding them in the desert. A monster attacks. People die. Hey, you got your heavy-handed drug addiction metaphor in my horror movie. No, you got your horror movie in my heavy-handed drug addiction metaphor.
18) Feeding Grounds (2006) - Four stoner douches and four chicks they just met head to the desert ('cause nothin' says "romantic first date" like a barren wasteland). They find some body parts, argue with each other, fight, drive around, stop, argue some more, fight some more, drive some more. Oh yeah, there's aliens, or something, following them around. This one sucked.
19) Body Bags (1993) - [Shout TV] - John Carpenter plays Cryptkeeper and introduces three stories: "The Gas Station" - Woman working her first night at a gas station is attacked by a killer. Buck Flower plays a bum. "Hair" - Stacy Keach is worried about losing his hair, so he tries David Warner's hair restoration system. "Eye" - Mark Hamill loses an eye, gets an executed muderer's eye transplanted by John Agar.
20) Hell's Highway (2002) - Guy dressed as a priest picks up a hitchhiker, then kills her and buries her. Then she kills him, and hitches a ride with four idiots driving by. Later on she gets picked up by Ron Jeremy and she castrates him, then kills him, so there's that at least. Turns into a found footage flick partway through, then swings into scifi territory for the wrap up because, sure, why not?
21) Guns of El Chupacabra (1997) - [B-Movie TV] - A few oddballs join together to battle a chupacabra and its gang, I think. Maybe. I don't know, there's a monster and a bunch of guys with guns. Nothing about this crapfest made any sense. Julie Strain, Kevin Eastman, Robert Z'Dar, and Conrad Brooks were in it. Not exactly an A List cast, but I don't know, even Conrad Brooks was probably too ashamed to put this one on his resume.

10/6/18

22) The Laughing Dead (1989) - [B-Movie TV] - A group of people take a bus trip to Mexico to check out some ruins, and run into some Aztecs looking to make a few human sacrifices to bring back some ancient deity. Written and directed by scifi writer Somtow Sucharitkul. Forrest J. Ackerman and comic book writer Len Wein were supposed to be in this somewhere. I've seen worse (earlier tonight, in fact).
23) The Sleeper (2012) - Guy makes weird phone calls and kills college students. Rather apt title, since it almost put me to sleep.
24) Full Eclipse (1993) - [B-Movie TV] - Supercop Mario Van Peebles is recruited to join a special police force (whose members are werewolves). Silly, but entertaining enough.

10/7/18

25) The Climax (1944) - Boris Karloff is an insane doctor who kills his singer girlfriend because of his jealousy. Ten years later another singer shows up who sounds just like his dead girlfriend, driving him back over the edge. Way too much music. Easy to see why this isn't a well-known Universal horror movie.
26) The Limehouse Golem (2016) - Police Inspector Bill Nighy investigates serial killer in Victorian London. IMDb doesn't list this as a horror movie, but AllMovie has "Sadistic Horror" as a sub-genre, and icheckmovies lists it as horror. I'll Wildcard it if anyone objects.

10/8/18

27) Another WolfCop (2017) - Rich guy reopens old brewery in WolfCop's town as part of his plan to grow new shape shifters. Was pretty good up until it went full on Teen Wolf and went to the hockey rink. Kevin Smith has certainly lost a lot of weight.
28) Hereditary (2018) - After her mother dies, Toni Collette tries to get on with her life, but someone or something has other ideas. That weird looking little kid was giving off a Michael (from Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror) vibe, making me wonder if she was a thirty year old playing thirteen. I didn't hate this film, but it was certainly nothing worth going out of your way to watch.

10/9/18

29) The Zero Boys (1986) - Three paintballers take three girls to a cabin in the woods. Someone starts stalking them through the woods. Okay watch if you don't stop to think about any of it.
30) Night Killer (Non aprite quella porta 3) (1990) - [B-Movie TV] - Killer in a rubber mask harasses a woman on the phone, then breaks into her house and attacks her. The woman survives but develops amnesia. Now suicidal, she hooks up with a creepy guy who abuses her. I had seen it before, but it was on and I was feeling lazy, so I figured I'd go ahead and watch it again. Most of the movie takes place around Christmas.
31) Day of the Dead: Bloodline (2018) - [Netflix] - Five years after a zombie outbreak, a medical student ends up as the chief doctor at an underground bunker. After a little girl gets sick, the doctor and a group of soldiers go to the doctor's old school to get medicine. After they get the medicine, they return to the bunker, bringing a stowaway with them. I don't know if they were trying to make a sequel, or a remake, or a "re-imagining" of the Romero film. In spite of the fast moving zombies, I didn't totally hate it, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it.

10/10/18

32) Happy Death Day (2017) - Bitchy sorority girl gets killed several times as she relives the same day over and over. A fun little teen comedy.
If you want a similar film with more horror, try Salvage (2006).

33) God Told Me To (1976) - [B-Movie TV] - Police detective investigates mass shootings where the shooters all say that God told them to do it. The more he learns, the weirder things get. I'd seen this one before, but it was a long time ago.
34) Stake Land II (The Stakelander) (2016) - [Netflix] - Guy from the first movie is living in Canada with his wife and child. After they are killed by vampires, he travels south to find his buddy from the first movie, and to get revenge.

10/11/18

35) Leatherface (2017) - Prequel tells origin story of the title character who is taken by authorities from his family as a child. He later escapes from a reformatory/asylum with three other teens and a hostage, followed by a sheriff who blames him for the death of his daughter.
36) Murder by Phone (1982) - [B-Movie TV] - While investigating the death of a student who died while talking on a public phone, college professor and environmental activist, Richard Chamberlain, learns that others died in the same manner.
37) Devil Dog: The Hound of Hell (1978) - Martine Beswick buys a dog and then mates it with the devil in a ritual as part of her overly complicated evil plan. Next, fellow devil worshipper, R.G. Armstrong, gives a cute little hellspawn puppy to Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann. As the evil dog grows, it starts a couple of mysterious fires, sits around staring at people, and eventually turns mom, Yvette Mimieux, into a horny, evil bitch, and the sweet Witch Mountain kids into rebellious, smart-mouthed teenagers. After a few friends turn up dead, Richard Crenna, the dad, starts to suspect something is up.

10/12/18

38) Laddaland (2011) - [Netflix] - Proud father moves his family to a new town and buys his dream home, then slowly watches his family fall apart. Oh yeah, and there are ghosts. Pretty good family drama, with some spooky stuff now and then.
39) A Quiet Place (2018) - Family struggles to survive against blind monsters which attack when they hear noise. Slow at first, but picked up in the second half.
40) The Willies (1990) - [B-Movie TV] - Three kids sleeping out in a tent tell each other stories. Starting with a couple of urban legends, then a story about a monster in an elementary school restroom, followed by one about a fat, bratty kid who tortures flies. Another one I'd seen before, but decided to watch because I was feeling lazy.

10/13/18

41) Ozone: The Attack of the Redneck Mutants (1986) - [B-Movie TV] - There's a breakdown in the ozone layer that's causing people to turn into monsters and kill other people. This one was pretty bad. I saw it a couple years ago. Too bad I didn't remember how bad it was, or I would have skipped it.
42) Inside (2007) - A few months after an auto accident which killed her husband, a pregnant woman is home alone on Christmas Eve when a woman breaks into the house and attacks her with a pair of scissors, hoping to steal her unborn child. Then her house becomes a really popular nightspot, attracting lots of visitors who die violent deaths.

10/14/18

43) Poltergeist (1982) - Family hires a group of parapsychologists to investigate after their youngest daughter disappears into her bedroom closet. It had been a long time since the last time I watched this. I was surprised how long it took for Zelda Rubenstein's character to show up.

10/15/18

44) Poltergeist II: The Other Side (1986) - It's a year later, and the family from the first film (except for the oldest daughter, because the actress had died) is now living with grandma somewhere. An Indian shows up at the site where their old house was, and he and Zelda Rubenstein go down a hole where they discover a bunch of dead bodies; the remains of a religious cult that died over a hundred years before. Turns out the leader of the cult was the Beast from the first movie, and he has followed the family to their new home and harasses them. I hadn't seen this since some time in the late '80s. Most of it was pretty good (Craig T. Nelson does a heck of an acting job when his character is possessed by the bad guy), but some of it (especially the ending) was laugh out loud ridiculous.
45) Poltergeist III (1988) - Carol Anne (Heather O'Rourke) is staying with her aunt and uncle (Nancy Allen and Tom Skerritt) in Chicago while she attends a school for "gifted children with emotional problems." A douchebag psychiatrist at the school hypnotizes Carol Anne, which in turn resurrects Reverend Kane (played by a different guy because the original actor had died) who finds her there and uses mirrors to get to her in the physical world. A mixed bag, like the second one it falls apart completely by the end, but the special effects are better in this one. Lara Flynn Boyle clawing her way out of Zelda Rubinstein's dessicated corpse was a pretty impressive practical effect. I'm guessing that Heather O'Rourke died while this was being filmed because her character kind of disappears near the end (and the final shot appears to have a stand-in for her because they don't show her face). I assume I saw this once before so I'll count it as a re-watch, but I really can't remember.
46) Peeping Tom (1960) - A focus puller films women as he murders them to perserve the look of fear on their faces, so he can watch it again later. I've seen this before, probably about fifteen years ago.

10/16/18

47) Terrifier (2017) - [Netflix] - Art the Clown, the killer from All Hallows' Eve (2013), spends another Halloween night killing people.
48) Cult of Chucky (2017) - [Netflix] - Survivor from the previous film is in an asylum, accused of Chucky's murders. Her psychiatrist brings a Chucky doll to their group therapy sessions, then Jennifer Tilly drops off a Chucky doll, and the two dolls start killing people. Meanwhile, Andy, the kid from the first movie, goes to the asylum to kill the Chucky dolls.
49) The Conjuring 2 (2016) - Starts out with the Warrens investigating the Amityville Horror house, then switches to England, where we meet a single mom with four noisy kids who live in a run down, haunted house. Eventually the Warrens are recruited by the Church to investigate and see if it's all a hoax. A little too long, started dragging midway, but picked up at the end. Takes place around Christmas if you want to watch a holiday horror movie.

10/17/18

50) Yûrei yashiki no kyôfu: Chi wo sû ningyô (The Vampire Doll) (1970) - A guy arrives at a big house in the middle of nowhere during a storm to see a girl he met in Tokyo six months earlier, only to be told by her mother that the girl was killed in a car accident two weeks before. He stays the night, and sees the dead girlfriend, now a vampire, walking around. When the guy doesn't call his sister for a week, the sister and her friend go to the house and spend the night sneaking around the spooky old house.
51) ¿Quién puede matar a un niño? (Who Can Kill a Child?) (1976) - A man and his pregnant wife take a small boat to an island for a two week vacation. They land there and find that all the adult residents seem to be missing and only the children remain.

Re: The 14th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa

9-30
1- The Omen 1976. The opening score takes me back to when I watched it in the theatre and scared the crap out of me.
2- The Wolf Man. 1941. The best of the Universal horrors in my opinion.
10-1
3- The Others. Good haunted house movie .
4- Fall of the House of Usher. 1960. How far would you go to keep a family member close? Death?
10-2
5- The Reaping. A teenage girl holds the key to the 10 deadly plagues in Louisiana?
6- Slaughter of the Vampires. 60’s B&W Italian horror. A vampire reeks havoc over the Italian countryside.
10-3
7- The Outpost. What if you were hired to check out an old WWII bunker that turned out to have a German army of the undead.
8- Horror of Dracula. 1958. This is why you buy a region free player. Vast improvement.
9- Friday the 13th 1980. I always thought that I would turn into Ralph in my later years- there’s still hope for me yet.
10-4
10- The Lords of Salem- Freaky movie, what else is new, Rob Zombie movie. A descendant from the Salem witch trials is chosen to lead a coven of witches.
11- Argento’s Dracula. A bit cartoonish, but I liked it.
10-5

10-6
14- Friday the 13th the series- The Quilt of Hathor PT. II.
15- The Night Stalker- One of the best ever TV vampire shows.
10-7
16- Psycho. 1960. This has gotten better with repeat viewings. Norman Bates in the ending scene. Sitting all alone at the police station was very creepy.
10-8
Psycho II. 1983. The sequel works very well. Relatives of the victims of Norman try to make him go insane again.
10-9
18- Children of the corn. 1984. A corn god worshiping cult that kills people over 19 in Nebraska.
10-10
19- Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires. Kung Fu vampires of the undead.
20- An American Haunting. The curse of the Bell Witch of Tennessee.
21- 100 Feet. A woman under house arrest is haunted by the person she killed.
22- American Horror Story Episode 4- Didn’t like it. Losing my patience with this .
23- House on Haunted Hill. 1958. People are paid to stay overnight in a supposively haunted house.
10-11
24- House of the Witch. Teens looking for a party house for Halloween find a haunted mansion with a witch.
25- American Horror Story- Episode 5- Still waiting for something drastic to happen- they brought the coven back.
26- Twilight Zone- A navy submarine gets messages from a sub 20 years it’s senior. The 30 fathom Grave.
27- Sleepy Hollow. Icabod Crane and the headless horseman always works well.
10-12
28- Brides of Dracula. Great. Even better in HD.
10-14
29- The Haunted Palace. My favorite from the great Vincent Price, in the HD set also. Looks glorious.
10-15
30- The Fog. The original. Some great 70’s Shlock here. Complete with the 8-track/ radio component system that I noticed right off.
10-16
31- The fearless vampire killers. I was always interested in this. But after a first time viewing I was’nt very impressed. Could try it again at a later date. But for now, thumbs down.
10-17
32- Creature from the Black Lagoon. Expedition to the Amazon produces a gill-like creature.
33- And Now the Screaming Starts. A newlywed couple, a mansion, an old curse, wife goes mad, complete with Peter Cushing to boot.
10-18
34- Dracula- Prince of Darkness- Don’t go to the castle they were warned. So what happens? They end up at the castle, of course.
35- From Hell- Take on the Jack the Ripper story.

Re: The 14th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa


Goal: 50

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

Sept 30th
1)Carnival of Souls - (BLU RAY) I learned that death, like some video games, has distinct borders. Great story, haunting and memorizing. Loved the creepy organ music, and the scene where the lead is playing the organ transfixed is well done. Revolutionary for the time period, if I saw this in the 60's, I would have shit my pants. 9/10
2)Deadtime Stories - (BLU RAY) I learned to simply ignore the sound of your trash can tipping over in the middle of the night. The Goldilocks and the 3 Bears was a WTF? out of the three segments, and easy vote to Uncle Mike for being the best Uncle of the Millennium. 5/10
3)Jack the Ripper (1976) - (BLU RAY) I learned that blind men make one hell of a witness. A completely unsatisfying ending, otherwise your typical Franco piece. 4/10

Oct 1st
4)The Car - (BLU RAY) I learned that it may be best to reschedule your practice parade marching until after the vehicular manslaughter ends. The music was very well done, but a little too familiar to The Shining (yes, I know this came after). It's almost like someone answered "a car" to the "chose the form of the Destructor" question in Ghostbusters. 6/10
5)Piranha (2010) - (3D BLU RAY) I learned that when dealing with piranha, your weapon of choice should be a motorized propeller. Insanely over the top, and exactly what I want in a film like this. Eli Roth making endless synonyms for boobs, T&A, Jerry O'Connell's dying words being "wet t-shirt", what's not to love here? 7/10
6)Piranha 3DD - (3D BLU RAY) I learned that it may be best to just skip opening day festivities of major theme parks and let the kinks work themselves out. My face when Piranha sequel announced My face when it was titled Piranha 3DD My eyes when Gary Busey and David Hasselhoff was cast The opening scene features a swarm of piranha chewing on Busey's face, only to have him rip one off for him to CHEW THE FACE OFF of the piranha! Yea... 3/10

Oct 2nd
7)Monster Club - (BLU RAY) I learned it's never smart to befriend a man who claims pigeons are his only friends. There is some charm here, but ultimately did not appeal to me. The bands in the music wrap around segments were an interesting idea, but again, not for me. 3/10
8)The VVitch - (BLU RAY) I learned to not let a witch get their hands on a newborn baby. This movie does for witchcraft what The Exorcist did for demon possession and Dawn of the Dead did for zombies. The pinnacle of witchcraft films. Beautifully shot, believable, phenomenal acting and such a slow burn that leads to a haunting and memorable climax. Subtitles are a must, however. 9/10

Oct 3rd
9)Humongous- (BLU RAY) I learned to never let your stupid, gun tootin' brother drive your boat. A nice Friday the 13th copycat, I had fun with it. Nothing revolutionary. 4/10
10)You're Next - (BLU RAY) I learned that an arrow shot through a window will quickly resolve any family dispute. And damn, I'm sending my child to a survivalist camp, will be way more useful than learning a fucking clarinet like I spent my youth learning. Thanks, dad! 8/10

Oct 4th
11)Frightmare - (BLU RAY) I learned to go for a Z-grade celebrity next time you're planning to steal a celebrity corpse. Had no idea this was a Troma film. For being members of a "Horror Film Society", these kids sure do make some dumb decisions. 5/10

Oct 5th
12)Jigsaw - (BLU RAY) I learned it pays to get to know your coworkers well. It had my attention throughout, and a good installment to the series. 6/10
13)The Strangers - (BLU RAY) I learned to go out, enjoy life, AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! Still effective for me, especially those first 30 minutes. The knocking noises got a jump out of me every time. 8/10
14)Class of 1999 - (BLU RAY) I learned that hatred of teachers and school will unify any warring people. Bionic tatas! Was surprised how much I enjoyed the insane finale of film. The first hour was typical warring gang type fodder, but the last 30 minutes is fun as hell! 7/10

Oct 6th
15)Squirm - (BLU RAY) I learned that electrocuted worms are angrier than a junebug caught in a tornado in the middle of July. I used this phrase because you will learn plenty of Southern sayings watching this, like "he'd tan your fanny" or "happy as a bump on a log". The howling noises of the worms was plain silly. Nothing great, worth watching once I suppose. 3/10
16)Slugs - (BLU RAY) I learned that eyeballs are a delicacy for mutated slugs. Features the unlikeliest heroes in a film ever - a health inspector, sanitation worker and amateur chemist. Better than Squirm, and has some great effects, but still nothing exceptional. 5/10
17)Slither - (BLU RAY) I learned that a bee sting, lime disease and alien possession all have similar symptoms that result in development of squid-like appendages. Surprise triple feature! Still love this film, great performances around, wonderful use of practical effects, and full of homages galore. 9/10
18)The Strangers 2: Prey at Night - (BLU RAY) I learned that witnessing your family members being murdered is the guaranteed quickest way to rehab your troublesome teen daughter. Has way too nice of pool for a trailer park. 4/10

Oct 7th
19)Willard (1971) - (BLU RAY) I learned all it takes to start training your own murderous flock of mice is a few breadcrumbs. Great character development and superb performance by Ernest Borgnine as the "bad guy". 6/10
20)Hellhole - (BLU RAY) I learned that mudbaths cure nymphomania. Felt disjointed with two separate plots that occasionally come together, with Silk hunting the girl to find the location of the papers she hid, and two physicians conducting unwarranted research on chemical lobotomies. Still, Silk has the be THE COOLEST character in horror movie cinema. Bonus points for abundance of nudity as well. 5/10

Oct 8th
21)Nightmare Before Christmas - (3D BLU RAY) I learned not to trust kids with your most basic of kidnapping plot. A classic, I know the words to most every song, and a film I try to watch on a regular basis. This was my first time watching in 3D, however, which added a new experience. 9/10
22)Happy Death Day - (BLU RAY) I learned that sometimes, not even getting arrested is enough to stop you from being murdered. An enjoyable film that keeps you guessing. 6/10

Oct 9th
23)The Fly (1986) - (BLU RAY) I learned that women are instantly swooning over men who win at arm wrestling contests. A classic remake that does everything right. Goldblum is fantastic and the effects are state of the art. 9/10
24)The Conuring - (BLU RAY) - I learned that demon possession smells an awful lot like rotting meat. Despite overuse of jump scares, this is a favorite recent horror film of mine. The Annabelle opening instantly paralyzed me the first time I watched it. 8/10

Oct 10th
25)The Babysitter - (Netflix) I learned that if you're going to be killed, go with style - like flipping a 1972 Chevy Chevelle through a front porch cool! It's like Home Alone meets a Satanic slasher film. 5/10
26)The Beyond - (BLU RAY) I learned that not surprisingly, one of the gates to Hell is located beneath a hotel. Think I stayed in a few like this. Much greater appreciation for it watching it a second time and easily Fulci's best. My only complaint is the sound effect used when a stretcher is rolling across the floor as it had a very "nails on a chalkboard" similarity. 8/10

Oct 11th
27)Doctor Butcher, MD - (BLU RAY) I learned that when used in fertility rituals, blonde scalps are thought to have double the effectiveness. Features what has to be the UGLIEST decor in film - bright green carpet with white, floral wallpaper. 6/10
28)Rawhead Rex - (BLU RAY) I learned that demon baptism looks an awful like being pissed on. The costume was a bit goofy looking, but otherwise ok. 6/10

Oct 12th
29)The Majorettes - (BLU RAY) I learned that while being a peeping tom is considered "wrong", it can lead to personal gain! This is one of those "so bad it's good" movies as I enjoyed writing down so many things I found hilarious, like the cop wearing Elvis glasses, the most white trash strip club ever with a string of lightbulbs TAPED to the floor to give illumination, and the stiffest acting I have witnessed since Birdemic. Not one of the victims screamed while being murdered, nor where there any tonal changes during dialogue. The end took a complete turn with an out of place shootout. Good film to make fun of. 4/10
30)Purge 4 (The First Purge) - (BLU RAY) I learned that it only takes one maniac with a knife to ruin a perfectly fun block party. Takes the series in a direction I do not like with laughable CGI blood and action sequences out of a Segall movie (one guy with a knife taking on a team of commandos with machine guns...c'mon!). I imagine the writing team saying "you know what would be cooler than glow masks? How about glowing contact lenses!" 3/10

Oct 13th
31)House By the Cemetery - (BLU RAY) I learned that most old houses in the Boston area have tombs in them. Great gore as expected from Fulci, most notable during a scene in which a bat latches onto a man's arm causing him to stab it with scissors and flail about, whipping blood onto his young son 6/10
32)Hereditary - (BLU RAY) I learned how important it is not to go along with someone's delusions, but rather to confront them and orientate them to reality. Might be my favorite of this year, so rare to find a horror film that doesn't rely on jump scares. It's unsettling throughout and terrifying, as is the pulsing, rhythmic soundtrack. 9/10
