Chronological Horror Years Faceoff - Chapter 6

1943 (Diamond) Vs. 1968 (Gold) Vs. 1993 (Silver)

Spoiler:

Son of Dracula dates the original Count Dracula as being destroyed in the 19th-century, when the original novel was set.

The following year, the Dracula-related series continued with House of Frankenstein in 1944, and House of Dracula in 1945,
both of which starred John Carradine as the original Count Dracula.
The famous arrival of Dracula's coffin by train was reprised in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948).

While Brewster and Lazlo speculate that he might be a descendant of the original Dracula, congruent with the film's title,
Katherine tells Frank that "he is Dracula". However, he is described as his descendant in the 1943 press kit.

This is the first Universal Dracula film to take the Count out of Europe and bring him to America.

VENTURE INTO THE LITERARY WORLD:

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


EREADER NEWS TODAY | PIXEL OF INK | E-READER LOVE | ZERO DOLLAR BOOKS | EREADER IQ

SOCIAL MEDIA
________________________






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

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



________________________






Extend it even further by joining our Google+ Circle.

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



________________________






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

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

Seriously, why do I keep posting those last two?

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


This post was initially my placeholder in case my first post was too early, or if I got fancy and needed two posts to fit all the pics. Those two things aren’t or won’t be the case, so I was about to delete this post before realizing that that would throw off most of Chad’s individual list links. So instead, I think I’ll post my comic reading list here. Probably.

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

Mallratcal's 10th October Horror Movie Challenge!

Oct 1st
1. Intruder ☠☠☠˝ / Blu-Ray / 83 min / 1989
Really good slasher set in a grocery store. Watched this on my first ever Horror Challenge on day 1 so I might as well do so again on Challenge #10. Lots of creative shots, the movie definitely has style.

2 The Thing ☠☠☠☠ / Blu-Ray / 109 min / 1982
First snow of the year today so might as well watch The Thing. Great movie with great special effects.

3. The Frightening ˝☠ / New / DVD / 85 min / 2002
A David DeCoteau film, so you know there were plenty of shirtless dudes. It's pretty bad, it starts as 4 students dressed in black killing fellow students. There is a pretty obvious supernatural twist and the movie doesn't have an ending, it just ends...

4. The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires ☠☠ / New / VOD / 83 min / 1974
East meets West as Van Helsing travels to China as he is interested in the legend. He is joined by 7 martial arts masters and Dracula is there too. It's mostly kung-fu and no gothic.

Oct 2nd
5. Visiting Hours ☠☠☠ / New / Blu-Ray / 103 min / 1982
Michael Ironside is an MRA who tries to murder a Barbra Walters type but only ends up putting her in the hospital, where the real main charter is introduced (Nurse Munroe), and a game of cat and mouse ensues. It's mostly mouse as the killer is not very good at this. The last act was really good.

6. AVP: Alien vs. Predator ☠☠ / New / DVD / 101 min / 2004
Been meaning to see this for a long time but put off by how bad everyone says it is. It's not great but it's not awful. The characters were all mostly nothings and the movie did feel too long, though.

7. Strangeland ☠☠˝ / DVD / 85 min / 1998
Dee Snider is a sex weirdo who abducts and tortures people he meets online. It's mainly about a cop who is hunting Dee, as he snatched his daughter. I might be a little generous with the rating but I did like Dee's character even if everyone else felt a little painted by numbers, the main cop's partner being the worst one.

8. The Autopsy of Jane Doe ☠☠☠˝ / New / VOD / 86 min / 2016
This was a really good mystery, not sure how it will hold up to a rewatch now that the mystery is gone, however.

Oct 3rd
9. The Hound of the Baskervilles ☠☠☠ / New / VOD / 87 min / 1959
Another good Hammer movie.

10. Leprechaun 3 ☠☠ / DVD / 91 min / 1995
The Leprechaun hits Vegas after a pawn shop owner awakens him. For the first 30 minutes Leprechaun just deals with that guy, while we get to know the 2 stars. Scott, a student on his way through town and Tammy, a magician's assistant. The new wrinkle in the story is that Scott gets bit by the Leprechaun (and gets some of his blood in the wound) and slowly starts to change into a Leprechaun. So Leprechaunism is sort of like an STD. The Leprechaun kills scummy/greedy people, except for the morgue worker, that dude didn't do anything! Lee Armstrong played Tammy and she was incredible looking, sadly she never did anything else.

11. Jeepers Creepers II ☠☠ / New /DVD / 104 min / 2003
Better than the first one. I was thinking the Creeper is a crappy villain because there is no way to stop him, but that was proven untrue. The Rules of 23 are still so weird though. This time the Creeper (not the director) preys on a bus full of high school basketball players, and a vengeful father is hunting the Creeper.

12. An American Werewolf in London ☠☠☠˝ / New /DVD / 97 min / 1981
Pretty good with some pretty great effects. I know it's a horror comedy but it felt a bit uneven. The highlight was the rampage at the end of the movie.

Oct 4th
13. Mad Doctor of Blood Island ☠˝ / New / DVD / 89 min / 1968
So you got your mad doctor and he is doing experiments on villagers, as he is looking for eternal youth. One of his experiments is loose and the killing begins. It's pretty slow. Apparently Severin Films has found the uncut version of this.

14. Happy Death Day ☠☠˝ / New / VOD / 96 min / 2017
This was good, probably better if it was rated R. The killer was super easy to guess. Best part was probably the montage where she is running down a suspects list and having some fun with it while also dying.

Oct 5th
15. The Endless ☠☠☠☠ / New / VOD / 111 min / 2017
This was really good. Not a jump scare movie at all. I don't want to spoil anything but it's 2 brothers who have escaped a cult, decide to go back and visit them after receiving a mysterious tape. Metaphors, man.

16. Impulse ☠☠˝ / New / DVD / 91 min / 1984
After a town experiences an earthquake the residents come down with a case of brain worms and start acting on their violent impulses. It was caused by a toxic spill into the towns milk supply and a shadowy government agent uses the Red Barron to gas the town. This is likely the movie that made people believe in chem trails.

Oct 6th
17. Macabre ☠☠ / New / DVD / 90 min / 1980
Not a lot happens. A lady keeps her boyfriends head in a freezer and teases a blind man. Her daughter is evil though.

18. Two Evil Eyes ☠☠ / New / VOD / 120 min / 1990
It looks nice but it's nothing special. Romero does the first Poe story about a wife scamming money from her dying husband, with her hypnotist boyfriend. Argento's tale is better, it's the Black Cat and dead body with monster kittens at the end is the highlight of the film.

19. Supernova ☠☠ / New / Blu-Ray / 91 min / 2000
This was a very formulaic movie, all of the common tropes are present right down to the programmer and A.I. being in love. A medical ship responds to a distress call and picks up a survivor with super strength and a mysterious alien artifact. It has a good cast and James Spader looked so young.

Oct 7th
20. Ghost in the Machine ☠☠ / New / DVD / 95 min / 1993
Pretty slow and a very low body count. A serial killer dies while inside of an MRI and ends up in a computer, but he can travel through electrical devices and also kill people through them. It would have been hard to make kills just through computers in '93, so I guess that's why he has that extra power.

21. Terror Toons ˝☠ / New / DVD / 80 min / 2002
This will easily be the worst movie I watch for this challenge. The music is horrible, so are the sound effects. The visual effects are from a special place in hell, they are literally clip art, just the worst. Cartoons break into the real world through a cursed DVD created by the Devil. The house was the only location used and I hope it was a set because it was the ugliest house I've ever seen.

22. Valentine ☠☠˝ / New/ DVD / 96 min / 2001
Average slasher about a nerdy kid getting his revenge on his childhood tormentors. I liked the ending, most slashers don't go for the dark ending. Katherine Heigl played a med student, so it's kind of a prequel.

23. Evil Toons ☠☠˝ / DVD / 83 min / 1992
Had to cleanse my Toon pallet. It starts with David Carradine hanging himself, though he was not wearing lingerie (sorry David). The Toon is the demon brought to life from a book 4 college girls find while cleaning an old house. The movie is totally tongue in cheek and is a fun watch. Biff might be the oldest college football player ever.

Oct 8th
24. God Told Me To ☠☠˝ / New / VOD / 90 min / 1976
Pretty god story of a detective trying to solve the mass murders where the killers tell him that God told them to kill people. It slows down a lot once the killing stops and the cop tries to find out more about himself. I think it would have been better if there were no twist. Also "God's" disciples who get tipped off to the killings early really goes nowhere and doesn't seem to serve him with any purpose.

25. Dr. Phibes Rises Again ☠☠˝ / DVD / 89 min / 1972
Forgot I had seen this in the past. Not as good as the first, it really needed more of Phibes' crazy death contraptions. Phibes heads to Egypt to find the river of eternal youth, while some other rich guy is doing the same thing. Phibes was lucky no one built anything over his underground elevators in the 3 years he was sleeping.

26. Hereditary ☠☠☠☠ / New / VOD / 127 min / 2018
This was really good. Toni Collette was great. There was a thing in the attic at the end that was kind of comical though.

Oct 9th
27. Tremors ☠☠☠˝ / DVD / 96 min / 1990
Really fun movie that did a good job of building everyone's character.

28. Don't Breathe ☠☠☠˝ / New / VOD / 88 min / 2016
Really solid cat and mouse movie with a blind guy hunting 3 robbers in his house. The blind guy also keeps a secret in the basement. At 88 minutes the movie was really tight, good stuff.

29. Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich ☠☠˝ / New / VOD / 90 min / 2018
A little disapointed with this. It had some great gore but it took a while to get going and was not as funny as I was expecting, in fact it was pretty dark with them being Nazis, front and center. The non-ending sucked.

30. Blood Rage ☠☠ / New / VOD / 82 min / 1987
Kind of a dull slasher about twin brothers, one of whom has escaped a mental hospital after he is wrongfully accused of murder. The killing starts right off the bat and is interspersed with weird scenes of the mother. This movie look a lot older than 1987 and must have had some sponsorship deal with Nike. I liked that it all took place in one night. Ted Raimi sighting, though he doesn't die.

Oct 10th
31. The Void ☠☠˝ / New / VOD / 90 min / 2016
Some amazing special effects but it's a pretty standard Lovecraftesque terror from beyond story set in a hospital. I really wanted more of the cosmic horror, like what we got from the final scene.

32. Drive Angry ☠☠˝ / New / Blu-Ray / 111 min / 2011
Pretty fun flick where Nic Cage escapes Hell to save his granddaughter from Devil worshipers. Had some dodgy CGI, though.

33. The Dorm That Dripped Blood ☠☠˝ / Blu-Ray / 88 min / 1982
5 college kids are cleaning up a dorm that is slatted to be torn down, while Garfunkel creeps around the campus. The killer made no sense but the final act made up for it, as it was quite long.

34. Killer Workout ☠˝ / New / VOD / 85 min / 1987
There were lots of beautiful women doing aerobics. It's a slasher that takes place at a tiny gym. There is no story flow, it's just aerobics, murder, aerobics, murder, fight scene, aerobics, and on and on.

Oct 11th
35. The Driller Killer ☠☠˝ / New / DVD / 96 min / 1979
An artist starts killing homeless people with a drill. Most of the killings happen together in quick succession, it's really a slow tale of a dude losing his mind.

36. Crimewave ☠☠☠☠ / New /Blu-Ray / 83 min / 1985
A dorky guy tries to save a woman from 2 hitmen. I've heard that the Coen Brothers are embarrassed by this movie but they shouldn't be, it's really funny! Lots of slapstick, it's really a live action cartoon. Ted Raimi doesn't die in this either, what the hell?

37. Inseminoid ☠☠ / New / DVD / 93 min / 1981
A science team that should not be in space (They are all idiots that make the worst decisions) find some crystals (that are forgotten about) that make people go nuts, and an alien that looks like a penis. Penis monster kills a scientist and inseminates another. The crew then spend the rest of the movie being terrorized by the mommy-to-be, who now has super strength and space madness. She does give birth to 2 penis monsters and yes they grow very quickly. I thought more people would get inseminated but they were able to avoid the 'Noid.

Oct 12th
38. Dog Soldiers ☠☠☠☠ / DVD / 105 min / 2002
A squad of army boys are trapped in a house that is under siege by a pack of werewolves. Haven't seen this since it first came out and it's still really good.

39. Detention ☠☠☠☠ / Blu-Ray / 93 min / 2011
It's a very meta spoof of a lot of movie, some of the jokes are dated but it's still very good.

40. The Fly II ☠☠☠˝ New / DVD / 93 min / 2011
Not sure why this doesn't get much love, it's a really good sequel. It picks up from the end on the first movie, Veronica gives birth to Martin, who ages quickly and is a genius. He's being studied by the Bartok company, and gets the teleporters working. He meets a girl and then turns into a fly monster, but it has a happy ending. If you like bad people getting their comeuppance then this is the film for you.

Oct 13th
41. Pulse ☠˝ / DVD / 90 min / 2006
This is what you're grandparents think of the internet. Ghosts use wifi to get into our world and steal the life energy of the living. I remember liking this more when it first came out, but it's really not very good.

42. I Know What You Did Last Summer ☠☠˝ / DVD / 101 min / 1997
I like the looks of the killer, the slicker/hook is really good. Fairly bloodless and it felt a little too long.

43. Basket Case 2 ☠☠˝ / DVD / 90 min / 1990
I didn't like this the first time I saw it but it's pretty good and funny. This time Duane is the freak as he and Belial are taken in by a family of freaks, while a reporter is trying to track them down. Belial also falls in love this time.

44. Jeepers Creepers III New / VOD / 85 min / 2017
This looked like it was made for $7.00. The CGI was sub-asylum level. It's a direct sequel to 1 (it starts at the police office) and is a prequel to #2. A sheriff and his team (half of them just disappear) are hunting the Creeper (the director knows a little about that). The Creeper returns to get his truck (which is now completely invulnerable)back from the cops There is a big plot point where they find an old Creeper hand that shows whoever touches it all about the Creeper, but we don't get to see it or even hear about it and no one uses the knowledge to do anything about it. Not good.

Oct 14th
45. Another WolfCop ☠☠ New / VOD / 82 min / 2017
A little to self aware this time. The shifters are impregnating people through beer. Kevin Smith is in it briefly and he's good. It also has some good effects.

46. Grandmother's House ☠˝ New / VOD / 90 min / 1988
2 kids move into their grandparents (Uncle Leo and Barbra Bush) home after their dad dies. Then a crazy lady starts showing up and it looks like the grandparents might be murderers, or are they? Some dumb and gross twists but it's mostly the kids just running around, pretty dull.

Oct 15th
47. The Halloween Tree ☠☠☠˝ New / VOD / 69 (nice) min / 1993
Pretty good animation, I would have loved this if I watched it as a kid. Ray Bradbury sounded a lot like Donald Sutherland.

48. Warlock III: The End of Innocence New / DVD / 96 min / 1999
Pretty bad, some bad acting and editing with flashbacks using the same screeching bird sound constantly, I think they were trying to give people seizures with some of the edits. So the Warlock is back and this time he wants to raise a bride. His powers are nerfed along with the budget, now he needs an item from everyone to do any magic against them. Bleh.

Oct 16th
49. Night of the Scarecrow ☠☠☠˝ / Blu-Ray / 85 min / 1995
Really fun B movie. It's a warlock trapped in a scarecrow who is looking for his book of spells.

50. Hobo with a Shotgun ☠☠☠☠ / Blu-Ray / 86 min / 2011
A great grindhouse movie that captures the spirit. Lots of great lines.

51. The Sentinel ☠☠☠☠ New / DVD / 92 min / 1977
A model moves into a new apartment and finds it to be haunted, or maybe something else is going on? This was a good mystery. Has an amazing cast. Also a cat has a birthday party and wears a party hat.

52. Zombie Lake ☠˝ New / DVD / 83 min / 1981
Pretty dull, there is no dialogue in most of the movie. The makeup effects were bad, the zombie were just painted green. When they filmed underwater you could tell they were in a pool as they didn't try to hide it. Lots of nudity though.

Oct 17th
53. House of 1000 Corpses ☠☠ / DVD / 89 min / 2003
Saw this when it first came out and hated it, but it's not that bad. Zombie has a good eye and there are some interesting visuals/sets, though I still hate the edits where it cuts to a scene and it has that filter on it, you know the one. The movie gets less interesting once the 4 normal people get captured.

54. Angel Heart ☠☠☠ / New / Blu-Ray / 113 min / 1987
A PI travel from NY to Louisiana in search of a missing person, the PI is hired by a mysterious dude and it's pretty obvious who he is. I had the ending spoiled a long time ago but there was enough hints that everyone should have figured it out.

55. My Bloody Valentine ☠☠☠˝ / Blu-Ray / 93 min / 1981
An above average slasher. Make sure to watch the extended cut for some good gore.

56. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer ☠☠˝ / DVD / 100 min / 1998
More exciting than the first one. I like the setting of the empty tropical resort during a storm. The epilogues to both films have always felt tacked on. I also forgot that Jennifer Love Hewitt had a brief singing career. 2 straight movies where a dead woman is found in a dryer.

Oct 18th
57. ParaNorman ☠☠☠˝ / Blu-Ray / 93 min / 2012
Love the animation. A boy must stop a witch's curse that will bring back the dead.

58. The Number 23 ☠˝ / New / DVD / 101 min / 2007
A man finds a book about the number 23 and seems to go crazy while trying to solve a murder. Not a lot happens and it's really boring, the first half of the movie splits time between Carey's life and the life of the detective in the book.

59. The New York Ripper ☠☠☠˝ / DVD / 93 min / 1982
A pretty vicious giallo that holds up on a 2nd watch.

60. House on Haunted Hill ☠☠☠ / DVD / 93 min / 1999
I think this still holds up. Party guests try to spend the night in a haunted asylum. I'm glad the shaky ghost/monster head stuff is over, it's never been scary and this movie had a lot of it.

Oct 19th
61. Nightmare Beach ☠˝ / New / VOD / 90 min / 1989
A biker is murdering spring breakers with his custom motorcycle that electrocutes people. The crooked town officials try to cover it up. John Saxon is a cop again and there is a latino Clint Howard. The real problem with the movie is that half of it is shots of people partying and it ruins the flow.

62. I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer / New / DVD / 92 min / 2006
This was bad. They went the Friday The 13th Part 6 route with this. It's pretty much a remake of the original except for the bad writing, acting, music, dialogue, effects and editing (the editing looked like something from a student film). The overall movie looked cheap, like a made for TV movie, but not from a good channel.

Oct 20th
63. Cherry Falls ☠☠˝ / DVD / 92 min / 2000
I like the twist on the genre, where virgins are being killed and the message of hypocrisy is still relevant.

64. The Frighteners ☠☠☠˝ / New / DVD / 122 min / 1996
First time watching the extended edition, not 100% what it added but this is a solid flick. Dee Wallace plays a maniac, very well, maybe too well...

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



First-Time Viewing: 21 | Blu-Ray: 4 | DVD: 3 | Theatrical: 1 | TV: 13 | Streaming: 26 | Commentaries Listened To: 0

1910: 1 | 1920: 0 | 1930s: 3 | 1940s: 3 | 1950s: 1 | 1960s: 1 | 1970s: 6 | 1980s: 7 | 1990s: 2 | 2000s: 3 | 2010s: 14

Sept. 30
1. I Married a Witch (1941)-Blu-Ray-**** Veronica Lake plays a witch burned at Salem (except no witches were burned there--they were hanged) who comes back to bedevil the heir of a curse she placed on his family at her execution. Cecil Kellaway plays her father and Frederic March plays her beau. This is a genuinely funny, sweet comedy.
2. Dressed To Kill (1980)-Blu-Ray-**** De Palma's films are often derivative of Hitchcock, and Dressed To Kill is a prime example, clearly ripped of from Psycho. In 1980 transgender characters were an easy punchline but nearly 40 years later the topic is much more problematic.

Oct. 1
3. IT (2017)-TV-**** Although Tim Curry will always be my Pennywise, Bill Skarsgĺrd's performance gives the audience an alien Pennywise, a creature that is so far removed from humanity that we can see the monster beneath the mask, an entity imitating the things humans fear. The kids in the Losers gang are all excellent, and I can't wait to see part 2 next year.
4. Mom and Dad (2017)-Hulu-**** Premise: A static TV signal makes parents kill their own children. That's a horrifying idea, but here it's played partially for laughs. Nicholas Cage is in top gonzo form as a father turned child murderer.
5. Lifeforce (1985)-Blu-Ray-**** Steve Railsback's performance is turned up way too high, but this is a terrific sci-fi update of Dracula.

Oct. 2
6. Blue Sunshine (1978)-Shudder-**** Blue Sunshine neatly captures the 60s hangover the young Boomers experienced in the 70s as their values switched from Woodstock Nation to the Me Generation. The boomers cut their hair, put on suits, went to grad school and shoved their youthful idealism in the closet next to their love beads and tie-dyed bell bottoms.
7. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1919)-YouTube-**** The nightmare visuals that are emblematic of German Expressionism are probably responsible for this movie's longevity.

Oct. 3
8. 47 Meters Down (2017)-Netflix-**** Definitely not for claustrophobes. Two sisters on vacation in Mexico decide to go on a shark viewing excursion in a submersed shark cage. An equipment malfunction sends their cage tumbling to the bottom of the sea. Sharklarity ensues. Really good movie that had me on the edge of my seat the entire time.
9. Blood Beach (1980)-Youtube-** I found this to be unsatisfying and the creature FX were terrible, although the post-climax scene is creepy as hell.

Oct. 4
10. Devil (2010)-Starz-**** I remember seeing a video of a movie theater audience laughing at M. Night Shyamalan's name in the trailer for Devil, but this is a decent horror film, a sort of "Lifeboat" of the damned set in an elevator.
11. Down (2001)-Starz-**** Down is the kind of dumb, fun horror flick you'd rent from Blockbuster on a Friday night back in the day. Is it a classic? No, but it is enormously fun to watch. Michael Ironside makes any movie he's in worth watching. And who knew dolphin brains were evil?
12. Thirst (2015)-Shudder** A group of teen delinquents stuck in a wilderness boot camp have to save themselves from being consumed by an alien. Not very good.
13. Venom (2018)-Theatrical**** Don't listen to the critics, Venom is an entertaining ride. Tom Hardy kicks ass, and his scenes where Venom is fighting by operating Hardy's body like a puppet reminded me of Upgrade, another movie I enjoyed immensely.

Oct. 5
14. The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016)-TV-**** This was a top-class thrill ride that absolutely worked for me.
15. Ghost Stories (2017)-Viooz-*** A British professor who debunks the supernatural investigates separate incidents of ghostly manifestations. The interweaving of the stories is clever

Oct. 6
16. The Rezort (2015)-Netflix-**** The plot here was stolen scene by scene from Jurassic Park but with zombies. I enjoyed it because the film works for me and it's executed well, but Spielberg should sue for copyright infringement.

Oct. 7
17. The Mummy (1932)-Blu-Ray-**** Boris Karloff. Accept no substitutes

Oct. 8
18. Mr. Jones (2013)-Amazon Prime-*** A young couple settle in a house in the country, where they discover the mysterious Mr. Jones, a reclusive Banksy-like artist who turns out to be a sentinel who guards the real world from the Dreamtime. There are some fascinating ideas here, but the execution is crippled by a low budget.

Oct. 9
19. Prom Night (1980)-Amazon Prime-*** I'm not a fan of 80s slasher films, but this is fairly decent with a young Jamie Lee Curtis in the lead and Leslie Nielsen when he was playing heavies before Airplane changed his career trajectory.
20. The Curse II: The Bite (1989)-TV-*** Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes? A couple are traveling in the Southwest, where the guy gets bitten by a radioactive snake, which turns his left hand into a snake, and he eventually transforms into a snake monster. Solid practical effects and some bad acting. Bonus Jamie Farr!

Oct. 10
21. Happy Birthday to Me (1981)-Viooz-*** Fairly decent slasher film up to the total horseshit ending out of Gaslight.
22. The Devil's Bride (1968)-TV-***** Top-notch Hammer. Christopher Lee plays an aristocrat who rescues a youngr couple form the clutches of a Satanic cult. Supposedly this is getting an R1 Blu from Scream Factory in 2019.
23. Horror of Dracula (1958)-TV-***** The movie that launched Lee as a horror star. It's a loose adaptation of the Bram Stoker novel with Peter Cushing as Van Helsing.

Oct. 11
24. Frogs (1972)-Amazon Prime-*** Ray Milland plays the patriarch of a Southern family who are done in one by one by the local swamp fauna. It's not nice to fool Mother Nature.

Oct. 12
25. Happy Death Day (2017)-TV-*** Much better and funnier than I thought it would be. While this Groundhog Day ripoff is clearly aimed at a teen market, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
26. It Stains the Sands Red (2016)-TV-***** Excellent zombie horror flick for the #MeToo era that shows there is still life in the genre. A Vegas stripper and her boyfriend flee the zombie apocalypse when they are stuck in the desert. He dies in the first 5 minutes and the rest of the film is the woman fleeing an extremely persistent zombie, escaped convicts and other dangers.

Oct. 13
27. The Devils (1971)-Filmstruck-***** The Devils reminds me of Oliver Stone's "JFK," another cinematic masterpiece that is utter nonsense from a strictly historical perspective. Although it was reviewed poorly on its release, over the intervening half century critics like Mark Kermode have rehabilitated its reputation as Ken Russell's crowning achievement. Oliver Reed gives a career-best performance as the internally conflicted Father Grandier, a man torn between serving God, his city, and his lust, and Vanessa Redgrave is alternately touching and grotesque as the Mother Superior who is sexually obsessed with Grandier.
28. The 50 Best Horror Movies You've Never Seen (2014)-Amazon Prime-*** Good source of ideas for the challenge.
29. 1313: Giant Killer Bees! (2011)-Amazon Prime-* Utter garbage. Hot, shirtless twinks are supposed to be a lab team engineering superior honeybees that become monsters. None of the twinks that DeCoteau cast can act, but they do have great abs.

Oct. 14
30. The Wicker Man (1973)-DVD-***** The Wicker Man is a perfectly made film, and one of the best films from the 70s
31. American Satan (2017)-TV-**** The plot seems to have been lifted from a Jack Chick tract. A struggling LA metal band makes a deal with The Devil (Malcolm McDowell), only to find their success is a lure into death and suffering.

Oct. 15
32. The Blood on Satan's Claw (1971)-Amazon Prime-**** The soundtrack is excellent, although I found ther plot a touch confusing;
1. a demon causes patches of fur to grow on local children
2. ???
3 Profit!
33. Cast a Deadly Spell (1991)-HBOGO-***** I absolutely love this movie! It's a perfect blend of film noir and Elder God horror, although the homophobic and transphobic bits detract. Fred Ward is great as the gumshoe who doesn't use magic in a magical world. C'mon Shout, get this out on Blu-Ray!
34. The Shape of Water (2017)-TV-***** Guillermo Del Toro teeters on the line of bad taste with this girl-meets-fish-monster love story.

Oct. 16
35. Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006)-Amazon Prime-**** for a low-budget horror flick, this succeeds as a comedy and a slasher film.
36. Nine Miles Down (2008)-Amazon Prime-**** The plot did not go where I expected. The description made it sound like a movie about demons, but turns out to be mindgames.
37. Uncle Sam (1997)-Amazon Prime-**** The 4th of July gets its own slasher flick. I thoroughly enjoyed this one--great action and a ton of "Hey, it's that guy" character actors.

Oct. 17
38. Hereditary (2018)-AlyxStarr-***** The shocks don't work the second viewing, but this is still a brilliant film about family dysfunction that rewards repeat viewings, even without the demonic trappings.
39. Don't Sleep (20177)-TV-* Total snoozefest. The plot, such as it is, is about a 20-something guy who experienced vivid nightmares as a child that are becoming real now, and turns out to be the product of demonic possession. Nothing here works; the direction, writing, and acting are all awful.
40. The Ferryman (2007)-DVD-**** A group of vacationers sailing from New Zealand to Fiji encounter ancient, soul-stealing evil at sea. This is a solid horror flick, although I had to turn on the English subtitles to understand the Kiwis.
41. The Walking Dead (1936)-TV-*** Solid B-picture action with Boris Karloff playing yet another sad character
42. The Mad Ghoul (1943)-Daily Motion-**** Slight but entertaining. A mad scientist uses an ancient Mayan elixir to turn a college student into a monster. I can't believe that TCM wants $20 for the DVD!

Oct. 18
43. Apostle (1971)-Netflix-**** The soundtrack here is terrific and really augments the action. Apostle could have used a bit more editing because the running time is a bit long and some of it feels stretched. Michael Sheen and Dan Stevens are awesome as always as the antagonists in this tale of a pagan cult and dark evil.
44. Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies (2017)-TV-** A ski resort adds chemicals to its artificial snow mix, and turns the local people and animals into flesh-eating monsters. This is supposed to be a comedy, but it's not that funny.

Oct. 19
45. Waxwork (1988)-Amazon Prime-**** Slight but entertaining. At some point i need to buy the Blu-Ray; Waxwork is an 80s hoot.
46. Trog (1970)-DVD-*** Pretty much for Joan Crawford completists only. She plays a scientist who tries to communicate with a primitive ape man.
47. The Wolf Man (1941)-TV-***** Lon Cheney Jr was never much of an actor, but he allows his own inner turmoil to come through and make LAwrence Talbot on of the saddest movie monsters.
48. The Invisible Man (1933)-TV-***** I haven't watched this in years, but it's really good, directed by James Whale and starring Claude Rains.
49. Blacula (1972)-TV-***** Blacula would be relegated to the drive-in garbage pile if it weren't for the magnificent performance of William Marshall as the eternally tormented vampire Mamuwalde.
50. Scream Blacula SCream (1973)-TV-***** This sequel to Blacula doesn't have much going for it apart from Marshall and Pam Grier. It's not a bad movie, it's just mildly entertaining and forgettable.


Oct. 20
51. The Willies (1990)-YouTube-**** This direct-to-VHS anthology flick frames its stories as campfire tales told by young boys trying to scare each other. Starring future hobbit Sean Astin.

Someone's Watching Me


September 30
1. [Rec] (2007) ☼ [Streaming-VUDU] - Wrapping up loose ends. I had started this film previously but for some reason had never finished it. Went back to view it from the beginning. Effective thriller.

October 1
2. 100 Feet (2008) ☼ [BD] - I'm not sure I've seen an angrier ghost.
3. Don't Breathe (2016) [BD] - I could probably watch the same 50-100 horror films each October. This would be on that list.
4. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) ☼ [BD] - I missed this part of history class.
5. Bad Milo! (2013) ☼ [BD] - Good choice to end a mini-marathon. Quirkly horror-comedy. Glad I didn't know anything about it going in.

October 2
6. Stranger Things - The Vanishing of Will Byers / The Weirdo on Maple Street (2016) ☼ [BD] - I've been anxious to check this out. Set in my home state, it really does a good job of capturing the feel of the midwest.
7. Being Human - The End of the World as We Know It / It Takes Two to Make a Thing Go Wrong (2011) ☼ [BD] - I started this show months ago and wasn't sure if I was interested enough to finish it. I enjoyed it more now, perhaps because of the time of year.
8. The Amityville Horror (1979) [BD] - I started to comment about Margot Kidder. Before doing so, I looked up my "commentary" in 2009 when I watched this last. I referenced her then as well.
9. Eyes of a Stranger (1981) ☼ [DVD] - I could close my eyes during this one and tell you it was made in the early 80s, just based on the music/sound.

October 3
10. Stranger Things - Holly, Jolly / The Body (2016) ☼ [BD] - This show also does a fantastic job in paying homage to the '80s.

October 4
11. Someone's Watching Me! (1978) ☼ [DVD] - Another John Carpenter/Adrienne Barbeau collaboration. Looked it up and it occurred 3 times, thought it was more.

October 6
12. Apocalyspe (2011) ☼ [BD] - I find myself a little distracted with films having "dubbed over" voices.
13. The Final Destination (2009) ☼ [BD] - I thought I was watching the initial film when I stuck the disc in. Turned out ok, since I hadn't seen this 4th entry with a similar name.

October 8
14. Being Human - I See Your True Colors...And That's Why I Hate You / Children Shouldn't Play With Undead Things (2011) ☼ [BD] - Entertaining werewolf transformation in the latter episode.
15. Final Destination 2 (2003) [BD] - The behavior of some characters is over the top at times that I could see this being loosely labeled as a horror-comedy.
16. Carrie (2013) ☼ [BD] - A remake that was entertaining enough, but Spacek's portrayal of Carrie in the original can't be topped.
17. The Happening (2008) [BD] - It's been so many years since I've seen this one, it was like a new film in that I couldn't remember much of it.

October 9
18. A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) [BD] - Very few remakes (if any?) are necessary. And they frequently can't hold a candle to the originals. This one certainly falls into that category.
19. Deadly Friend (1986) ☼ [DVD] - Favorite unexpected star was Anne Ramsey of Throw Momma From the Train popping up.

October 10
20. Godzilla vs Destroyah (1995) ☼ [BD] - I'm no different than anyone else being very familiar with Godzilla. But I don't believe I had ever seen one of the many films from beginning to end.
21. The Hand (1981) ☼ [DVD] - I hadn't seen Michael Caine, or his appendages, in a role like this.
22. Stranger Things - The Flea and the Acrobat / The Monster (2016) ☼ [BD] - This show is good, but I'm still undecided on whether it's lived up to the hype.

October 11
23. Friday the 13th: The Series - The Voodoo Mambo / And Now the News (1988) ☼ [DVD] - I probably never gave this show a fair look since it wasn't like the movies.

October 12
24. Stranger Things - The Bathtub / The Upside Down (2016) ☼ [BD] - Definitely worth a rewatch at some point down the road.

October 13
25. Godzilla vs Megaguirus (2000) ☼ [BD] - It is now my goal to look up how many Godzilla films exist. I'm going with 34, but that's a complete shot in the dark.

October 14
26. I Spit on Your Grave 2 (2013) ☼ [Streaming-VUDU] - My records indicated I had seen the 1st & 3rd films in this "series" and this was free on Vudu. My response to this one is much like the other ones--it makes you cringe and not want to re-visit it.
27. Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla (2002) ☼ [DVD] - From wikipedia: The film franchise consists of 33 films, 31 produced by Toho and 3 Hollywood films. I don't think it's just me, but it sounds like that should be 34. No one will believe my extraordinary guessing skills.

October 15
28. Being Human - I Want You Back (From the Dead) / Dog Eat Dog (2011) ☼ [BD] - Of the 3 "creatures" (ghost, werewolf, vampire), I am always more fascinated by the wolf.
29. Being Human - Going Dutch / You're the One I Haunt (2011) ☼ [BD] - This show has something going for it, but not enough for me to explore futhre seasons.
30. Being Human - A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Kill You / Friday the 13th: The Series - Tails I Live, Heads You Die (2011/1988) ☼ [BD/DVD] - An observation I've made: Horror doesn't work as well as hour-long serialized shows. Content is best in shorter doses, hence the reason most films hover around 90 minutes.

October 16
31. Hide and Seek (2005) ☼ [BD] - Believe this might have flopped in less capable hands, but the outstanding cast made it work.
32. Dog Soldiers - (2002) ☼ [BD] - "Jaws, Aliens & Predator with a Werewolf Twist" might be the greatest tagline ever.

October 17
33. The Craft (1996) [DVD] - Seeing this with a number of familiar faces/stars and noticing this film has been around for 22 years. Has me feeling old.

October 18
34. Jeepers Creepers (2001) [BD] - Very creepy film, overshadowed a bit by the annoying behavior of the teenage leads.

Summary (may not be updated until end of month) - 27/34 entries were first time views; BDs: 23.5; DVDs: 7.5; Streaming: 2; Theatrical: 0

Past Results:

PRE-SHOW:
Spoiler:
September 22, 2018
1. Halloween Baking Championship (S3|E4): "Sweet Screams"☼ (2017, Food Network)
2. Halloween Baking Championship (S3|E5): "The Candyman Cometh"☼ (2017, Food Network)




FEATURE PRESENTATION

September 30, 2018
1. [1 pt] Trilogy of Terror☼ (1975, DVD)
I think this is one of those movies that you would have had to see back in the day to really feel the nostalgia. Although the last story had me cracking up!
2. [1 pt] The Changeling☼ (1980, DVD)
I've been trying to watch this for years... finally. I was impressed. A little cheesy in parts, but still a great story.

October 3, 2018
3. [1 pt] Halloweentown (1998, Disney Channel)
We were looking for something lighthearted. This was on. Always fun.

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

TheBigDave's Horror Movie Challenge 2018


FAMILY FRIENDLY
Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) - A disappointing sequel. Visually, it looked great. But every joke and plot twist was predictable. I didn't laugh once.


VAMPIRES & WEREWOLVES
Silver Bullet (1985) - I really disliked this back in the 80's. This is the first time I watched it since then, and it was better than I remembered.
