Re: The 15th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread***

October 1st:

1. Slender Man 1.5 stars out of 5
Good premise that lacked execution. Just bad teen acting and all the scares were in the pitch black dark.

2. Cat People 2.5 out of 5
Decent acting, but felt more like a romantic drama than a horror film for 75% of the movie. Supporting actress for half the film seemed to just want to get the main actor's pants down to his ankle and give him what he's been missing. For what it was back in that era, it was good, but in today's world, it doesn't hold up and doesn't have the scares to deliver.

October 2nd:

3. Critters 2 out of 5
Typical cheesy 80's horror film for families. Creepy creatures but the writing and acting just doesn't do much to draw the attention of the viewer for the entire film.

4. [REC]3 3 out of 5
20 minute intro. Longest intro before title screen ever? I do enjoy foreign films as the acting is usually a bit better than here in America, so that was a plus. However, the ending just had way too much cheese for my taste. Dude stalled like crazy to help his wife and with zombies, if you see a loved one dead because of the infection, you kill them. Just help them get to that other side. No need for you to die too.

October 3rd:

5. Phantasm 4 out of 5
The movie really draws you into the characters and sinks you in, though it does leave a handful of questions. Pretty sure kid jumping out of moving car not once, but twice will get some sort of injury, no? Are Mike's parents really dead? Is Tommy? And the Tall Man really isn't that tall, is he? Still, it had its scares and was a very enjoyable ride.

6. Goosebumps 2 2.25 out of 5

Slappy was one of my favorite characters growing up reading [i]Goosebumps so I was glad to see him getting a movie. And the start of the movie was really entertaining. After the family turned on Slappy, though, the movie started going downhill. It would have been better as a 60 minute TV special.

7. Def Fan 3.5 out of 5
Movie really holds up from the time it was made to now (almost 40 years). Story is a good slow burn and the characters were pretty interesting. It just left a lot of questions for the viewer that doesn't make a lot of sense as in how someone can run away at a young age and parents never did anything about it as well as how a huge mega star would go for someone kind of average (she's pretty but she won't stand out in a lineup) among other questions. It's good for a watch or two, though, as it does stay in your mind long after the movie is over.

October 4th

8. Joker 4.5 out of 5 (wildcard for Nightmare on Elm Street 4)
With all the hype and knowing it wasn't going to be true to the comics, I went into this with low expectations. However, I was blown away by the acting and storytelling. Yes, the story itself (how society and the rich do not look after the mentally ill and poor) but with the people involved, it was highly entertaining. Interesting take on Batman's father as well.

9. Ghost Stories 4 out of 5

10. Pooka! 4 out of 5

11. Zombie 2 2 out of 5
I had read a lot of good things about this film on "best of" lists but this just did not meet the expectations I had. The first half was pretty boring until they got to the poking of the eye scene which really drew you in and got your heart racing. However, just the poor acting and script would take me out of the movie. It had amazing death scenes and makeup, but it had nothing else to go with it.

October 5th

12. Phenomena 2 out of 5

13. Uncanny Annie 2 out of 5

39. The Hills Run Red 2.5 out of 5

October 12th

40. The Blackcoat's Daughter 2.75 out of 5

41. The Hatred 2.25 out of 5
The opening story drew me in and thought it was a time peace movie. Sadly, it just set up the story and the movie kind of went down from there. Had they expanded and just used those actors, the movie could have been a lot better. The present day story, could not care less about the characters or what was happening to them.

Re: The 15th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread***

This will be my 14th consecutive year participating in the "October Horror Movie Challenge!"
Total Horror Movies Before This Year = 509

"Lights out. And now the movies, folks. . ."

September 30, 2019
1. It: Chapter Two (2019) - Less intense than its predecessor - but the strong cast pull this second half of King's story through. I especially liked Bill Hader as the adult Richie.

October 1, 2019
2. Pet Sematary (2019) - Another Stephen King adaptation. Atmosphere is what this new version of King's novel gets right. Some plot / character elements are changed, but they don't alter the story's central premise.

October 2, 2019
3. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) - This wasn't a bad young-adult PG-13 attempt at a horror film - I liked the historical setting.

October 3, 2019
4. Happy Death Day 2U (2019) - It was fun to return to the Happy Death Day characters, but the move to goofy sci-fi plot devices sort of undermines the slasher film charm of the original.

October 4, 2019
5. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) - We saw this classic at the Morristown MPAC tonight with a live appearance from William Shatner himself afterward. I'm including the film on this list because it does have some horrific elements - like the ear creatures. This was a fun night out.

October 5, 2019
6. Rappaccini's Daughter (1980) - Slow-going adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic story.

October 6, 2019
7. Glass (2019) - Clever film from M. Night Shyamalan that brings together characters from his prior movies Unbreakable and Split.

October 7, 2019
8. Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) - Overall, this was a fun sequel - a bit too long, perhaps, but the monster sequences were well-done.

October 8, 2019
9. Annabelle Comes Home (2019) - This felt a bit padded, but there was enough clever ghostly mayhem to get a pass.

October 9, 2019
10. 4D Man (1959) - The overpowering jazz score is the most notable feature of this flick.

October 10, 2019
11. The Two Faces of Dr Jekyll (1960) - Christopher Lee has a supporting role in Hammer's take on Stevenson's classic novella.

October 11, 2019
12. House of Wax (1953) - Vincent Price stars in one of his signature roles.

October 12, 2019
12.25 The Twilight Zone "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" (1963) - William Shatner in one of the all-time classic episodes of this series!

October 13, 2019
12.5 The Twilight Zone "Living Doll" (1963) - The ending might be predictable, but this is still a successful episode. Telly Savalas is good as the lead.

October 14, 2019
13.5 Night of Terror (1933) - I had never seen this Bela Lugosi vehicle before - it's a surprisingly lively (albeit dated in a number ways) "dark house" thriller.

October 15, 2019
14.5 Black Dragons (1942) - Bela Lugosi vehicle during his "poverty row horrors" period that's thematically tied to the contemporary World War II effort.

October 16, 2019
15.5 The Werewolf (1956) - A lot of "running around in the forest" scenes to pad out the length of this old production.

October 17, 2019
16. Biography "Edgar Allan Poe: The Mystery of Edgar Allan Poe" (1994) - Interesting overview of Edgar Allan Poe's life.

October 18, 2019

Week One (1-23)
Spoiler:

September 13 - Pre Challenge Friday the 13th Bonus Fun
Friday the 13th Part 3[ (1982) (Friday the 13th 4-Movie Collection) 4/10
Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter[ (1984) (Friday the 13th 4-Movie Collection) 7/10
Final Chapter is a much better movie than Part 3. The earlier film is lackluster with bland victims and very little suspense except for some of the final chase. I watched it in 3D (red/blue glasses) and that worked better than I expected although it was only fair most of the time. Some of the 3D money shots were effective. Final Chapter has more interesting characters, better kills (even if less gory), tension throughout the film, and a solid finish.
Howling IV: The Original Nightmare[ (1988)
An author moves to a small rural town for a rest but discovers that the people there are harboring a secret. I watched this since my ratings indicated that I liked this the best of the three sequels that I watched but I didn't remember much about it. There isn't a whole lot of werewolf action. Much of the film is about discovering and uncovering the town's mystery which I enjoyed. There is a gooey transformation scene near the end and the finish to the story is OK but not great. [5.5/10

October 01
01. Hereditary (2018)* Streaming Amazon
After an old woman dies her children and grandchildren begin to experience ominous and sometime deadly events. One of the most consistently creepy movies I've seen with an increasing sense of foreboding that never lets up and there are few shocking moments as well. An intelligent script, smartly made with excellent acting. I'm not sure why but the end was just a little bit of a letdown for me even though it all made sense. 8/10
02. The Black Cat (1966)* (Severin Hemisphere Horrors) Blu-Ray
A wealthy young man ruins his marriage and the rest of his life when he turns to drink and becomes obsessed with a black cat. A fairly faithful (I think) adaptation of the Poe story transplanted to a slightly sleazy mid-1960's USA. Low budget with some very poor acting (female lead) but the film is well enough made to be entertaining despite the shortcomings. 6/10
03. The Blood Drinkers aka Vampire People (1964) (Severin Hemisphere Horrors) Blu-Ray
A powerful vampire tries to save his true love's undead life by getting the heart of her twin sister. A different take on vampires made in the Philippines. In color but many scenes are tinted red (vampire threat) or blue (night). This makes certain scenes very eerie. Ronald Remy is a very imposting head vampire. Atmospheric but it did drag a little in spots. 5.5/10
04. Night of the Wild (2015)* Streaming Amazon
Green, glowing meteorites cause most canines to become bloodthirsty killers. Not as satisfying as I hoped it would be. A few a-hole dog owners got eaten by their little darlings but for the most part it was just seemingly random people getting attacked by the same bunch of dogs. Stereotypic characters but the acting wasn't awful and the end was OK. 4/10

October 02
05. Hell House LLC (2015)* Streaming Amazon
Fake documentary film looking back at a deadly incident at a Halloween haunted house attraction in a small town. A found footage film which I usually don't care for because of the shaky-cam effects but this one had some interviews to break that up and there were a few nice scares along the way. Still there is always the point when I think a person just wouldn't be recording anything at that particular moment. 6/10
06. Schizo (1976)* (The Pete Walker Collection) Blu-Ray
Starting on her wedding day a woman begins to see a sinister figure from her past but no one believes her. Thriller with supernatural and slasher elements has an interesting story and good acting. Reminded me of an English giallo at times. I did guess the major part of the ending but not all of it. 5/10
07. Murder Obsession aka Murder Syndrome (1981)*
An actor who had a traumatic childhood returns home to visit his mother and is joined by his girlfriend and several of his co-workers. Basically a giallo but with doses of satanic rituals and a touch of the supernatural. Confusing at times with a convoluted finish that ends up actually working, it's never dull. 5/10

October 03
08. Leprechaun 4: In Space (1996)* (Leprechaun The Complete Movie Collection) Blu-Ray
The leprechaun wants to become a king by marrying the princess of another planet but a crazed scientist and some over the top space marines get in his way. Insanely silly, sometimes almost stupid but I got plenty of laughs and ended up really liking it. Less than stellar effects, a fast pace, and plenty of nods to other movies add to the fun. 6/10
09. The Fan (1982)* Blu-Ray
A teenage girl is obsessed with a popular pop star and after her letters to him go unanswered she runs away hoping to meet when he does a TV show. Very well made, intense film and the star does an excellent job as the teen but it is not pleasant to watch. Some mixed feeling here. 7.5/10
10. Splatter University (1984)* Blu-Ray
Students and faculty at a small religious college are being savagely murdered. By the numbers slasher movie with OK effects and sub par acting. The students act more like high school kids than college, the plot made less sense than usual and I was able to pick out the killer pretty early on. Still the lead actress was animated if not always capable and there was almost a tongue in cheek attitude which made it watchable. 5/10

October 04
11. The Chilling (1989)*
Bodies that have been cryonically frozen return to life due to lightening strikes and run amok at the storage facility. Pretty good. Little gore and a long buildup but the attack on the plant has lots of fun moments and the zombies look fine. Predictable plot with a few holes (why is that guy there?) but still enjoyable. Some name actors involved (Linda Blair, Dan Haggerty, Troy Donahue). 6/10
12. Zombi 4 aka After Death (1989) Blu-Ray
Two unrelated groups of people end up on an island that once had a medical research facility but now is populated by zombies. Lots of action with both fast and slow moving zombies but the constant attacks get to feel the same after a while. Just a little plot, a few atmospheric sets, and good gore effects with especially impressive ones at the beginning and end. 5/10
13. The Hanging Woman aka Terror of the Living Dead (1973)*
When a young man comes to a village to hear the reading of his uncle's will he is shocked to find a woman hanging from a tree just outside the graveyard. Then things get even stranger. Enjoyable film is a mystery with mysticism, 19th century science, and zombies. No big scares but there's a nice atmosphere and some great sets. Paul Naschy shines as the sleazy gravedigger. 6.5/10

October 05
14. Raw Meat aka Death Line (1972)*
A London police inspector investigates the disappearance of a government official and discovers that others were last seen at the same subway station. Donald Pleasence is great as the abrasive inspector and there are some creepy tunnels that are used to great effect at times. Solid story with some gruesome parts and good acting all around. 7/10
15. The Devil Within Her aka I Don't Want to Be Born (1975)*
A woman is cursed by a horny little person and ends up having a baby with almost superhuman strength and fits of intense violence. Could it be ... SATAN? Despite Donald Pleasence and Caroline Munro in small roles, this didn't work for me. It started out OK but I was never convinced of the premise, much of what was supposed to be eerie was just kind of funny, and it got tedious towards the end. 4/10
16. Phenomena (1985) Blu-Ray
A teenage girl with a psychic link to insects teams up with an entomologist to try to find out who is killing girls around an exclusive Swiss boarding school. Enjoyable. Moves along at a good pace with some impressive photography but once the finale starts the pace picks up and things get crazy and bizarre. 6/10

October 06
17. The Woodland Haunting 2 (2006)* (Hostile Hauntings)
Paranormal investigators are called to investigate a haunting. They don't get there in time. Pointless, meandering story with no real acting although lines are delivered quite naturally. Some very clever padding techniques are used and I'm embarrassed to admit I got a few chuckles out of some really stupid humor. Not painful to watch but best to avoid. 3/10
18. Lady in White (1988)*
Apparitions help a 10 year old boy reveal the identity of a killer who has been murdering children for years. Set in 1960's small town USA and told from a child's point of view this has some good suspenseful and creepy scenes. Not a lot of violence and even less gore and some effects are a little dated. Good comic relief from bickering immigrant grandparents. 6/10
19. Don't Panic (1988)* (BCI Crypt of Terror: Horror from South of the Border Vol. 1)
After playing with a Ouija board at his birthday party, a teenager begins of have visions of his friends being stabbed to death and is horrified to discover that it is actually happening. The makeup and deaths are pretty well done but it isn't until the last half hour that things get interesting. The first hour is a chore to get through and it doesn't help that our hero is running around in his dinosaur pajamas for a good part of that time. 4.5/10

October 07
20. Inn of the Damned (1975)* (Oz-Ploitation Boxset Vol. 1 R4)
In 1896 Australia an elderly couple run an inn along a stagecoach route where guests check in but don't check out. There's a western style manhunt story that plays out before the focus moves entirely to the inn story. No gore or scares but the conclusion is a little creepy and there's a nifty means of murder involved. Good effort. 5/10
21. The Tunnel (2011)*
A news team explores abandoned subway tunnels to find out why the government stopped plans to use them as part of a water recycling project. Faux documentary with interviews and film from the expedition. There is growing tension and a few really creepy parts along with some great underground locations but this never really grabbed. 5.5/10
22. The Sweet Sound of Death aka La llamada (1965)* (on The Hanging Woman disk)
A man and a woman pledge their love even beyond death and soon after the woman is supposedly killed in a plane crash but returns to the man a day later. Quiet, unusual ghost story with some nice atmosphere and eeriness instead of scares. The end is a bit chilling. 5/10
23. Screaming Dead (2003)* (Shock-O-Rama Horror Collection)
A photographer, specializing in artistic fetish picture, and five associates go to an abandoned hospital, rumored to be haunted, for a photo shoot. Uneven effort. Plot is predictable but there is a very good buildup but after that things are just kind of flat. Good pacing and a good low budget cast but the special effects are lacking. 4.5/10


Week Two (24-47)
Spoiler:

October 08
24. Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning (1985)
Now grown Tommy Jarvis, survivor of Jason's last rampage, is moved to a halfway house to prepare him to enter the world after spending most of his life in institutions. Then the killings begin. OK entry, somewhat tongue in cheek. Good effects and makeup with so many kills some had to be done off camera but with little suspenseful buildup. The final chase is exciting and I like the arc they do with Tommy. 5/10
25. Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986)
Tommy accidentally resurrects Jason and mayhem follows. I liked the actor who played Tommy in Part V better but overall this movie is superior. There's lots of creepy atmosphere throughout and the kills are more interesting as are the buildups. Theres some fun winks and outright humor which is actually funny and doesn't detract. 6.5/10
26. Death Walks at Midnight (1972)* (Arrow Death Walks Twice) Blu-Ray
A model is stalked by a man who she saw commit a brutal murder when she was under the influence of a hallucinogen but there is no evidence of the crime. Some gory murders, a typically convoluted plot, and some good chases make for an entertaining giallo. 5.5/10
27. Jack the Ripper (1959)* Blu-Ray
US version. An American police detective helps the London police track down Jack the Ripper. Pretty good with a some grisly stuff for the time but the emphasis is on the mood of the menacing, foggy London nights and the public's growing fear. Some very evocative street sets and decent acting. 5/10

October 09
28. Don't Torture a Duckling (1972)* Blu-Ray
In a rural Italian village police and reporters have to deal with local fear and superstition while they try to find out who is strangling boys. Well paced mystery with solid performances and some very gruesome scenes. There are some spectacular locations which are effectively used in the story. 7/10
29. Mystery on Monster Island (1981)*
After their ship blows up two men are stranded on a mysterious island and find visiting cannibals, dinosaur like creatures, seaweed people, a hot babe, and cloaked raiders among other things. I assume this was supposed to be a children's movie so it's probably OK for that but I found it kind of lame with one extremely annoying character. 3.5/10
30. Slaughterhouse (1987)* Blu-Ray
An elderly recluse uses his savage if dimwitted son against the people he blames for losing his slaughterhouse business and anyone else who gets in the way. Fun, low budget slasher movie has a touch of humor and a fair amount of gore with surprisingly good acting, great locations indoors and out, fast pacing and a few tense scenes. The film opens with scenes from a real slaughterhouse so be warned. 6/10

October 10
31. Eight Legged Freaks (2002)*
In a small town, spiders exposed to toxic waste grow really, really big. VERY standard plot with the usual bunch of characters but made with a light touch and some actually funny humor. The spiders look good and there's many different kinds (explained). Scarlett Johansson playing the sheriff's daughter doesn't hurt one bit. 6/10
32. Mimic (1997)* (Mimic 3 Film Set)
Scientists create a new species of insect to combat a plague that kills children but the cure becomes more dangerous than the disease. Excellent. Interesting story, fine acting, lots of tense, creepy underground scenes and a thrilling climax. The creatures look great. 7.5/10
33. Absentia (2011)*
A woman's husband who had been missing for more than seven years suddenly returns in a battered and almost catatonic state. Very creepy, very intense with several good scares and a somewhat different plot. Not much gore, more of a quiet, psychological story with solid acting. 8/10

October 11
34. The Long Hair of Death (1965)* Blu-Ray
In the late 1400's a woman is burned for witchcraft and murdering the count's brother. As she dies she curses the count and his family. Leisurely paced, moody Gothic horror film full of creepy corridors and underground vaults. Good soundtrack adds a lot to the atmosphere. Barbara Steele shines as the witch and her oldest daughter. 6.5/10
35. Vamp (1986)* Blu-Ray
Two pledges go to a strip club to hire a dancer for a frat party but the one they pick turns out to be a vampire. Just OK. The vampire makeup is pretty good and the movie has a more serious tone than I expected but I couldn't get into this one. 5/10
36. The House That Screamed (2000)*
An author of horror novels rents a haunted house in order to write his next novel there. Not a good idea. This is not The House That Screamed that's part of the subset list. The story has some good ideas but they usually aren't well executed and there are several clever bits of padding in an already short film. The lead doesn't have the acting skills to really pull off his role but he's not awful either. Slow at times but watchable. 4.5/10

October 12
37. The Incubus (1982) Blu-Ray
Small town officials try to find out who is behind a series of savage murders and rapes. Compelling story relies on the viewer to put some things together and has a chilling finish although in retrospect there are some unexplained points. A growing mood of uneasiness is particularly well done. 7/10
38. Evilspeak (1981)*
At a military academy, a loser cadet who is bullied by students and staff uses a computer to help translate an ancient ritual that will get him the power of Satan. Long buildup generates a real dislike for the bullies and the story goes in a darker directions than I anticipated. Clint Howard is good as the loser cadet. 5/10
39. In the Mouth of Madness (1994)* Blu-Ray
An insurance investigator goes to a town that no one thinks exists in order to find a missing horror author whose novels appear to have strange effects on some readers. Entertaining and interesting film dealing with cosmic horror of a Lovecraftian type. Several really bizarre scenes add to the fun. 6.5/10
40. Wendigo (2001)* (The Larry Fessenden Collection) Blu-Ray
A couple and their young son go to a rural area for a snowy long weekend but run into trouble when they anger a local hunter by hitting the deer he was tracking. Well made psychological horror film keeps ratcheting up the tension and slowly adds a supernatural element to the mix. Strong visuals. The actor who played the son was particularly effective. 7/10

October 13
41. Voodoo Woman (1957)* Streaming Amazon
In Africa a crazed British doctor uses voodoo rituals and Western science to turn a woman into an indestructible creature. Pretty good AIP drive in fodder stars B-movie babe Marla English and hunky Mike Conners (when he was still going by Touch Conners). 5.5/10
42. Puppetmaster III: Toulon's Revenge (1991)* (Charles Band's Puppetmaster Collection)
In Berlin during WW2 Andre Toulon and his puppets fight the Nazis who want his secret of animating objects. A good cast, an interesting story, and well done puppets make for a fun watch. 6/10
43. Howling V: The Rebirth (1989)* (Timeless Media Group: Howling Trilogy)
A group of people are invited to a castle near Budapest that has been closed for 500 years. Lackluster sequel is a little interesting at first but turns into a series of similar killings. There is also a mystery to be solved but the solution isn't much of a surprise. 4.5/10

October 14
44. The Climax (1944) (Universal The Boris Karloff Collection)
Karloff plays an unstable doctor who uses hypnosis to gain power over a young opera singer who reminds him of his lover who disappeared ten years ago. Karloff is always worth watching and he does a nice job playing both concerned and menacing. There are a few longish musical numbers which slow things down a little but are entertaining for what they are. 6/10
45. The Cremator (1969)* Blu-Ray
A somewhat pompous and self-centered but seemingly compassionate man who runs a crematorium is introduced to Nazi ideas and radically changes. Set during the early years of WW2. An art film but a good one. The horror creeps up subtly and the ending is truly chilling once you realize what's going on. The acting is excellent and the soundtrack does a perfect job enhancing the visuals. I was tempted to watch this again. 8.5/10
46. Aswang (1994)*
A young woman, pregnant and unmarried, signs a contract to turn her baby over to a married couple who can't have children so they can get an inheritance. There's a lot to like here especially several nice jump scares, entertaining WTF action, icky gory moments and a kind of different but terrible horror. The story seems to get out of control near the end and the shocking conclusion just barely makes sense if at all. 6.5/10
47. Wendigo aka Frostbiter: Wrath of the Wendigo (1995)* Streaming Amazon
In Upper Michigan hunters disturb a mystic circle freeing the fearsome Wendigo. Pretty bad. Almost entertaining at times, the high point is a decent stop-motion Wendigo. Constant background music is usually too loud and often doesn't fits the action. 3/10


Week Three (48 - 70)
Spoiler:

October 15
48. Effects (1979)*
Members of a film crew making a low budget horror movie is a remote area begin to feel that something is not quite right. Dark, unsettling film with multiple layers often blurs the line between reality and fantasy. Even now I'm not sure about some scenes. John Harrison who plays the unemotional director does a very good job. 5.5/10
49. Paranormal Activity (2007)* (Paranormal Activity 6 Movie Collection) Blu-Ray
A young couple begins to experience strange occurrences in their new home similar to things that have happened to the woman at other times in her life. Pretty good build up of suspense and tension but no big scares until the excellent finish. 6/10
50. Memory (2006)* (Echo Bridge 4 Film Horror Collector's Set 67909)
After being accidentally exposed to a South American native drug, a medical researcher begins having visions of a mysterious and menacing figure. Interesting mix of serial killer mystery with touches of SF and horror. Nice performances by all which kept me absorbed at all times. 7/10
51. War of the Gargantuas (1966)
Two giant humanoid creatures, one good and one evil, fight each other and the armed forces. Good kaiju movie with neat looking monster suits and an interesting story. Quite a spectacular battle at the end. 6/10

October 16
52. Carrie (1976) Streaming Amazon
A shy, bullied high school senior is given a chance to fit in but because of a malicious prank she is embarrassed instead. I haven't seen this since the theatrical run and was pleased to see that it held up very well, most likely due to a very strong cast and good script. 7/10
53. House (1985)* Blu-Ray
A writer moves into his deceased aunt's huge Victorian mansion which is rumored to be haunted. Enjoyable horror-comedy has a few little scares and some funny bits with one or two good looking creatures and several kind of silly ones. 5/10
54. Salvage (2006)* (Echo Bridge 4 Film Horror Collector's Set 67909)
A young woman has reoccurring vivid visions of being brutally murdered by man she's never seen before. Even though there are a couple of good twists in the plot there just isn't enough story here for a film. The movie moves slowly and the actors just aren't good enough to keep it interesting. 4/10

October 17
55. Kuroneko (1968)* Region 2
After being raped and murdered by soldiers, a mother and her daughter-in-law, whose husband is off fighting, become demons vowing to drink the blood of all samurai. The husband returns a hero and a samurai and is assigned to destroy the monster which is killing samurai. An interesting situation and lots of atmospheric scenes in a bamboo grove make for s very good film. 6.5/10
56. Mad Doctor of Blood Island (1968)* (Severin The Blood Island Collection) Blu-Ray
A government scientist, a beautiful woman looking for her father, and a young man returning home land on Blood Island and have to face chlorophyll created horrors. Fast moving with neat looking monsters and tasteful touches of gore and nudity, this is drive-in entertainment at it's best. 6/10
57. The Torture Chamber of Doctor Sadism (1967)* (Severin Hemisphere Horrors) Blu-Ray
Count Regula is drawn and quartered for torturing and killing a dozen young women; 35 years later he returns to destroy the ancestors of those who condemned him. Standard gothic horror basic plot but a very weird movie. Lots of bizarre, often atmospheric scenes, a castle full of traps, a pit with a pendulum, and an 18th century lab set among other things. Surprised that I liked it so much. 6/10

October 18
58. Full Moon High (1981)* Streaming Amazon
A high school football star is bitten by a werewolf during a trip to Romania and has to deal with his monthly transformations and the fact that he hasn't aged when he returns home decades later. Interesting take on werewolves and full of silly humor some of which I thought was pretty funny, even if some of it, like the political humor, is dated. 5.5/10
59. Dream No Evil (1970)* (Arrow American Horror Project 2) Blu-Ray
A young woman, orphaned as a child and currently working with a faith healer, believes that she has found her father in a small desert town. Well made, quiet horror film with a strong cast and one huge flaw. A narrator reveals critical story information which would have been much more effective if the viewer had figured it out on their own. 5/10
60. Grave of the Vampire (1972)* Streaming Amazon
A vampire rapes a student and she bears a son who she feeds with her own blood. Years later the grown son seeks vengeance on his father. The opening graveyard scene is great and the end is petty good as well. In between is an interesting, sometimes eerie, film with a slightly different take on vampires. 6/10
61. Garden of the Dead (1972)* Streaming Amazon
Convicts killed during an attempted prison break rise from their graves as formaldehyde fueled zombies. Shot quick and cheap as the second feature for Grave of the Vampire this isn't bad at all. The zombies look OK and a few story quirks make it interesting. Short running time also helps. 4.5/10

October 19
62. Girl's Nite Out (1982)*
A killer wearing the school mascot's costume begins killing co-ed's during a sorority scavenger hunt. Mundane slasher movie with little tension or variety in the deaths. The end is pretty good though. 5/10
63. Video Violence (1987)* (The Basement - Retro 80s Horror Collection)
In a small town, a couple from New York City open a video rental store but some very disturbing tapes end up in their return bin. Decent story with some cheesy gore and over the top acting. Not to be taken too seriously but it runs way too long before the predictable payoff. 4/10
64. Cannibal Campout (1988)* (The Basement - Retro 80s Horror Collection)
Four college students go camping in a very remote forest area (which is really kind of a pit) and find only trouble. Basic city folk vs inbred locals in the woods plot. The acting is low level but there are times when tension is built up very well and it ends up being a very cheesy and icky gore fest. 5/10

October 20
65. Night of Terror (1933)* Streaming Amazon
A knife wielding maniac terrorizes the city and threatens to disrupt a scientist's experiments with suspended animation. There's a lot going on in the entertaining Columbia B movie including a gathering of greedy heirs, a seance, secret passages and an odd final scene. Bela has a decent sized part as a turban wearing servant. 5.5/10
66. Horror of Dracula (1958) Blu-Ray
Dracula vs Van Helsing in this Hammer classic. Great cast, some good atmosphere and the rich Hammer period feel make this one of my favorite Dracula and Hammer movies. 8/10
67. Count Dracula's Great Love (1973)* Blu-Ray
Four women and a man take refuge in an old sanitarium after their coach breaks down and the driver is killed. Paul Naschy plays a wistful, almost vulnerable Dracula, in this sometimes slow moving story. There are some really creepy scenes and the end was unexpected. 5/10

October 21
68. Troll (1986)*
An evil troll tries to convert an apartment building into part of fairyland so he can begin his conquest of humans. Lighter than it sounds with a kid hero and some nifty looking creatures. Story is just so-so and there are some well known stars but many don't have much to do. 5/10
69. A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988) (A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection) Blu-Ray
Freddy returns and kills off the last of the Elm Street children but wants more blood and finds a way to get it. Some impressive, grisly dreams in this one with good special effects all around. 6/10
70. Dolls (1987)* Streaming Amazon
During a storm, a couple and their young daughter take refuge in an old mansion owned by a doll maker and his wife. An charming look at childhood with lots of neat doll effects that still hold up and several creepy scenes that produce a scare or two. I really enjoyed this. 7/10


October 22
71. The Slumber Party Massacre (1982)* (Roger Corman's Cult Classics The Slumber Party Massacre Collection)
A madman with a big honkin' drill goes around killing high school students, mostly females. Above average slasher film with lots of blood and some light touches of humor that don't disrupt the flow. Michael Villella does a great job as the killer who has a real presence and menace without a mask. 6.5/10
72. Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural (1973)*
A devoutly religious young woman is summoned to her father's deathbed and becomes involved with terrible supernatural forces. Strange movie set in the 1930's or 40's has a dreamlike, nightmarish feel throughout and is full of unsavory and/or creepy characters and sometimes inexplicable events. 6/10
73. Mimic 2 (2001)* (Mimic 3 Film Set)
Some of the bugs from Mimic are back and are stalking a woman who was a member of the original team that created them in order to make her their queen or something like that. Disappointing sequel is a muddled at times and doesn't have many likable characters. The effects are OK though. Watchable but that's about it. 5/10
74. Habit (1995)* (The Larry Fessenden Collection) Blu-Ray
A man whose life is falling apart meets a mysterious woman at a Halloween party. Long, slow but always interesting buildup without any scares, just a growing suspicion that something is not right. Director Fessenden does a good job as the lead. The movie may be just a little too long. 6/10

October 23
75. The Child (1977)* (Arrow American Horror Project 2) Blu-Ray
A young woman returns to the remote area where she grew up to become a companion to a girl who has a special relationship with something living in the graveyard. Possibly set in the 1940's. Great locations, sometimes very creepy, unusual camera angles, and a good score help this overcome it's low budget roots. Some actors are better than others but the creature makeup and gore effects are very well done. 6.5/10
76. In Their Skin (2012)*
A wealthy family goes to their palatial vacation home after a family tragedy and discovers that they have disturbing new neighbors. You kind of suspect what's going to happen but the tension keeps building. Very well acted and paced. 7/10
77. Nightwing (1979)* (Mill Creek Animal Apocalypse 4 Movie Set)
Vampire bats threaten Indian reservations in the American Southwest. Standard killer animal disaster plot has some Native American mysticism mixed in for good measure. Some great scenery and a strong start but things get pretty cheesy by the end. 5/10

October 24
78. Christine (1983) Blu-Ray
A high school dweeb buys an old car and almost immediately his personality begins to change. Well paced film with lots of suspense, good characters, and effects that still hold up. 7/10
79. Luther the Geek (1989)* Blu-Ray
A convict serving time for three counts of second degree murder who has razor sharp metal teeth on only makes sounds like a chicken is paroled and immediately goes on a murderous rampage. Bizarre low budget film that director Carlton J. Albright fills with tension and suspense. Edward Terry is memorable as the killer. 6.5/10
80. Tower of London (1962) (The Vincent Price Collection III) Blu-Ray
Upon the death of King Edward IV, his brother schemes to become king using torture, murder, and kidnapping to pave the way. Roughly based on Shakespeare's Richard III but done in the gothic horror style used in Roger Corman's Poe films. Vincent Price does indulge in some scenery chewing as Richard. 6/10

October 25
81. Phantasm II (1988) (Phantasm 5 Movie DVD Collection)
Years after the first film Mike and Reggie pursue the Tall Man in order to destroy him. More straightforward than Phantasm but full of strangeness which I really liked such as the trail of destroyed towns that mark the Tall Man's path. 6.5/10
82. The Slumber Party Massacre II (1987)* (Roger Corman's Cult Classics The Slumber Party Massacre Collection)
One of the survivors of the original Slumber Party Massacre has nightmares about a rocker with a big honkin' drill at one end of his guitar who is out to get her. They get worse when she goes with some of her friends to spend the weekend at an isolated condo. Not your typical massacre movie. It has several musical numbers and a ridiculous but menacing killer. 5.5/10
83. The Ghosts of Johnson Woods (2015)* Streaming Amazon
An awkward, overweight young man is goaded by a pushy, self centered teenaged girl into making a horror film so they will both become famous. Very low budget but quite watchable with a disturbing ending. Joe Bob Briggs plays the man's father. 5/10

October 26
84. Howling VI: The Freaks (1991)* (Timeless Media Group: Howling Trilogy)
A carnival owner wants to add a werewolf to his freak show. Lame looking werewolf but the werefish/demon/whatever looks OK. Carnival atmosphere is pretty good but there aren't any scares and the plot is pretty standard. Still in it's own crazy way this is a fun watch. 5/10
85. Virginia Creepers: The Horror Host Tradition of the Old Dominion (2009)* Streaming Amazon
Interesting and fun documentary about horror hosts on Virginia and Washington DC. media from 1958 to the present. There sure were a lot of them! Hosted by present day horror host Mr. Lobo there are interviews with participants and fans and clips from shows when available. 6/10
86. Troll 2 (1990)*
Some goblins try to turn some humans into plants so they can eat them because goblins are vegetarians - or something like that. Awful, just awful. Was this movie intentionally made so stupid or did it just turn out that way? The acting ranges from wooden to over the top, which is at least mildly amusing. The goblin costumes suck and the kid is the most annoying little sob I've seen in a long while. A few strange scenes create a little interest. 2/10
87. Video Violence 2 (1988)* (The Basement - Retro 80s Horror Collection)
Lovable sadists Howard and Eli are back running a pirate cable TV station featuring their own brand of fun. There are still pacing problems but this is more fun than the original producing a few laughs. Of course considering what it followed anything would probably look good. 4.5/10

October 27
88. The Cat Girl (1957)* Streaming Amazon
A young woman inherits a curse which mystically links her to a ferocious leopard. Good movie with some atmospheric scenes in an decrepit old mansion and some dark back streets of London. 6/10
89. Arachnophobia (1990)* Blu-Ray
A small town doctor with a paralyzing fear of spiders must deal with an infestation of poisonous spiders. Son of a gun. OK movie with good production values but the pace is a little too leisurely at times, the spiders sometimes act just too damned smart, and some scenes go on too long, in particular the finale. 5/10
90. House II: The Second Story (1987)* Blu-Ray
A couple moves into a house that is just full of weirdness, but only the husband seems to notice. Not scary but full of fun creatures and lots of adventure and action. Kind of an Indiana Jones feel at times. 5.5/10
91. Digging Up the Marrow (2014)* Blu-Ray
Faux documentary about a film maker's efforts to verify the claims of a man who says he knows of an underground realm where monsters live. Well done for the most part with the best build up I've seen in a while including more scares than I get from most films. The end doesn't live up the the build up and some of the effects don't look that good in the finale. Still, I liked this a lot. 7.5/10

October 28
92. Tales That Witness Madness (1973)*
Anthology film with four tales about patients in an asylum. None of the stories are outstanding and range from bland and predictable to interesting but not really scary. The cast is a good one and the wrap around story features Donald Pleasence, always a good thing. 5/10
93. Tales From the Darkside: The Movie (1990)* Streaming Amazon
Much stronger set of three stories plus a wrap around which are much more interesting, atmospheric, and gory than the above. Very entertaining. 6.5/10
94. Dracula Prince of Darkness (1966) Blu-Ray
Drac's back thanks to a ritual performed by one of his human followers and four hapless English tourists. Some creepy scenes but it needed more Dracula and while Andrew Keir was good as the abbot I missed Peter Cushing. 6.5/10

October 29
95. The Conjuring 2 (2016)* Blu-Ray
The Warrens are asked by the Catholic church to look into a haunting in London to see if it is a hoax or not. Well done with lots of atmosphere, some nice scares, and good effects. Runs over two hours but it didn't seem overly long. 7/10
96. Prince of Darkness (1987)* Blu-Ray
A group of scientists go to an abandoned church to investigate a strange object found in the basement. Absorbing story has an almost Lovecraftian view of evil and religion not to mention lots of tension and creepiness.
7.5/10

97. Oculus (2013)* Blu-Ray
A young woman tries to prove that a supernatural force associated with an old mirror was responsible for the death of her parents many years ago. Great movie starts out with a sense of normality and after a while you suddenly realize things are all messed up. Blends the past and present and real and not real in very unsettling ways. Excellent acting especially the kids. 9/10
98. The Mothman Prpphecies (2002)*
A reporter investigates strange sightings and phone calls similar to something his wife saw just before she died. Nice sense of strangeness throughout the film with a few very eerie moments. 6/10

October 30
99. Devil's Partner (1961) Streaming Amazon
A stranger who has strange powers comes to a small town where his uncle died mysteriously. This has a good B-movie cast and a very effective score by Ronald Stein which helps the atmosphere quite a bit. 5/10
100. The Chill Factor (1993)* Blu-Ray
Snowmobilers take refuge in an abandoned religious camp for children when one of them is seriously injured. Takes a while to get going with too much snowmobile footage and the story is a standard one but some of the kills are interesting. Kind of a dumb ending. 5/10
101. Omen III: The Final Conflict (1983)* (The Omen Collection) Blu-Ray
A now adult Damien becomes US Ambassador to Great Britain so he is in place to kill the Christ child and prevent the second coming. OK wrap up of the series at least has some credible if incompetent threats to the Anit-Christ. Moves along nicely with no surprises and the end is kind of hokey. 5/10
102. Dark August (1976)* (Arrow American Horror Project 2) Blu-Ray
After accidentally killing a girl a man thinks he is being stalked by the girls grandfather, begins to suffer seizures, and frequently sees a cloaked and hooded figure. He goes to a local witch to try and put a stop to this. Nice quiet movie, a little different from most with no scares or big shocks but a few surprises along the way. 6/10
103. The Seventh Victim (1943) (Val Lewton Box)
A young woman goes to New York City to look for her older sister who may have run afoul of a group of devil worshippers. Some great sets, especially the streets of the city thick with shadows and menace. There are one or two weaknesses in the story but the end is intense. One of my favorite Lewton films. 8/10

October 31
104. Halloween 4 (1988) (Halloween the Complete Collection Deluxe Edition) Blu-Ray 6.5/10
105. Halloween 5 (1989) (Halloween the Complete Collection Deluxe Edition) Blu-Ray 5.5/10
106. The Mummy's Hand (1940) (The Mummy Complete Legacy Collection)Blu-Ray 5.5/10
107. The Wolf Man (1941) (The Wolf Man Complete Legacy Collection)Blu-Ray 8/10
108. Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943) (The Wolf Man Complete Legacy Collection)Blu-Ray 6.5/10
109. Son of Dracula (1943) (Dracula Complete Legacy Collection)Blu-Ray 5/10

Re: The 15th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread***

List Complete
Stats
Number Watched: 53 Credits
Movies: 51
TV Episodes: 9 (All half hour)
Number of Challenges: 10


Unfortunately, not as many as I would have liked for my 10th year. Super busy October this year. Maybe next year


Reserved
Goals:
Spoiler:

Not a lot of goals. Busy time at work and house hunting. So probably doing house buying stuff and/or moving in October. I'll shoot for 31 movies during the month.

List:
Spoiler:

Sept 13: Bonus Day!
1. Full Moon High
2. Bad Moon
Oct 1: It Begins...
3. The Fly (1986) - Finally completing one of my blindspots as I'd only ever seen small bits of this. This was very good. And honestly less gross than I expected.
Oct 2
4. Neon Maniacs - Interesting. It got pretty fun in the second half. Good solid first 15 minutes to get you into it. Above average kinda cheesy.
.25 credit: Are You Afraid of the Dark S02/E02 "Tale of the Midnight Madness"
Total partial credits: .25
Oct 3
5. Critters: A New Binge - Wow, that was not a good series.
6. Deadtectives - Often a little slower than it should be, but some good fun overall. The finale is where it is the best, but they should have gotten to those ideas earlier.
7. Hostel III - I remembered this being less visceral than the first two. Still not something I feel the need to watch again any time soon. Pacing is off, and I was honestly just done with it by the time the climax came around.
.25 credit: Are You Afraid of the Dark S03/E01 "The Tale of the Midnight Ride"
Total partial credits: .5
Oct 4
7. The Ranger - Nobody is likable or really interesting here. Will never watch again.
8. Monster Party
Oct 5
.25 credit: Are You Afraid of the Dark S02/E05 "The Tale of the Thirteenth Floor" - Honestly, the ending of this one was unfortunately too telegraphed. Kind of hurt the fun of the episode overall.
9. Happy Death Day
Total partial credits: .75
Oct 6
10. Fun Size - This is just a fun family little rump that takes place on Halloween. Nothing scary and just lighthearted fun. Nothing memorable, but not a bad way to waste 90 minutes.
11. Dead House - This is a short movie that still feels like it is too long. It just takes forever in the lead up. Just dwells on the really unpleasant people in the setup for far too long.
12. The Covenant - Had a lot of potential. But boy was this boring.
Oct 7
13. Dracula 2000 - Not entirely without merit. I liked the idea of what Van Helsing has been doing over the years. But the plot is overwrought for what they did. And honestly, it would have been more fun if they just had more vampire hunter action.
14. Almost Human
Oct 8
15. The Hills Have Eyes Part II
Oct 9
16. Shadow of the Vampire
17. Mindhunters
Oct 10

Re: The 15th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread***




September 13th (Bonus Day) (Friday the 13th + Full "Blood" Moon)
1) Cursed (DVD) - A forgotten, fun Wes Craven werewolf movie. 3/5
2) An American Werewolf in Paris (DVD) - I really like this one. Good effects for the time. Needs a Blu-ray release. 4/5
3) Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (Blu-ray) - My go to Jason movie. A classic! 5/5

October 1
4) Child's Play (2019) (Blu-ray) - An enjoyable, updated adaptation of a classic. When I watch remakes I try not to compare them to the originals. taken in that context this wasn't bad. Not as memorable as the original, but nicely "updated" for modern audiences. Worth a watch 3.5/5

October 2
5) Leprechaun (Blu-ray) - I was never a huge fan of this series, but thought I would re-watch it since I plan to check out the recently released sequel. Wife hated it. On a scale of 1 - 5 she gave it a zero. 2.5/5

6) Nightmare Cinema (Blu-ray) - "The Masters of Horror movie" . I nice throwback to Amicus style anthologies. Five stories from 5 directors including Joe Dante and masters of Horror creator Mick Garris. heres hoping for a sequal. Recommended! 4/5

October 3
7) The Dead Don't Die (PPV HD) - A different take on the zombie apocalypse story. Great cast including Bill Murray. The writer tries to capture a Romero feel and often succeeds, but not always. Pacing is a bit slow at times, and the ending is a bit heavy handed. There are a few good Easter eggs. I can't help but think I might like this better with another viewing. Maybe I'll pick up the blu-ray down the road when it hits the bargain bin. 3/5

October 4
8) The Witching Season (Blu-ray) - Anthology from Scream Team Releasing 3/5

9) The Addams Family (1991) (Blu-ray) - Good Halloween fun! 4/5

10) The Vampire Lovers (1970) (Blu-ray) - The first in the Hammer Karnstein trilogy. Can never go wrong with Hammer for the Halloween season 3.5/5

October 5
11) Phantasm Ravager (Shudder / Joe Bob Briggs Christmas Marathon) - The last in the Phantasm series. Leaves more questions than answers, but quite entertaining. 3.5/5

12) Addams Family Values (Blu-ray) - Not as good as the first but still fun for Halloween 3.5/5


October 6
13) Body Bags (Shudder) - John Carpenter and Toby Hooper directed anthology. Several cameos. 4/5

14) Zombieland (4K Ultra HD) - Always a fun watch. Can't wait for the sequel in a couple weeks. 4.5/5

15) Lust for a Vampire (Blu-ray) - The second and in my opinion weakest of the Karnstein vampire trilogy. That great Hammer atmosphere is there though. 3/5

16) Dracula (1931) (MeTV / Svengoolie) - Cool version with a musical score that was not present in the original movie. Apparently it is from a French DVD release. Really changes the vibe of the movie. Would love to have this on disc. 5/5

October 7
17) The Curse of La LLorona (Bluray) - The latest entry in the Conjuring universe. Not as scary as some of the Conjuring movies, but a good story based on an ancient Hispanic legend. 3/5

October 8
18) Twins of Evil (Blu-ray) - The final entry in the Karnstein trilogy. Peter Cushing elevates the material as usual. 3.5/5

19) Dracula's Daughter (Blu-ray) - Sequel to the original classic. 3.5/5

October 9
20) Bram Stoker's Dracula (4K Ultra HD) - I like this one more each time I watch it. 4/5

21) Son of Dracula (Blu-ray) - Lon Chaney Jr as Dracula. Not the best choice considering he is so well known as the Wolfman. 3/5

October 10
22) Night Angel (Bluray) - Last time I saw this was on Drive-In Theater with Joe Bob Briggs in the early 90's. Great late night flick of the era. 3.5/5

23) Night of the Sea Gulls (Bluray) - The last of the Blind Dead Series. Not the best one but still fun. 3/5

October 11
24) Humanoids from the Deep (Blu-ray) - Roger Corman classic creature feature 4/5

October 12
25) Creepshow (Bluray) - The original classic movies directed by the great George A. Romero 5/5

26) Annabelle Comes Home (Blu-ray) - I don't understand all the hate for this movie. I found it to be a fun flick and a great entry into the Conjuring universe. 4/5

October 13
27) Ghost Ship (Blu-ray) - 3.5/5

October 15
31) Crawl (Blu-ray) - Fun creature feature 4/5

October 16
32) 3 From Hell (Blu-ray) - Rob Zombie returns with his sequel to The Devil's Rejects. A little "tamer" than Rejects, fans will love it. Probably won't change anybody's mind if they don't like RZ films. 4.5/5

33) Prom Night (1980) (Blu-ray) - Jaime Lee Curtis in an early 80's slasher. Predictable but fun. 3.5/4

October 17
34) Scarecrows (DVD) - I was inspired to pull this from the shelf after watching the first Creepshow story. 3.5/5

35) Hobgoblins (Amazon Prime / Elvira hosted) - Only able to sit through this since Elvira was hosting. A bad bad Gremlins rip off. 1.5/5

October 18
36) Dark Shadows (Blu-ray) - Tim Burton's take on the classic television show. Lots of fun. Not sure why I haven't watched this one more. Right up there with Sleepy Hallow and batman in terms of favorite Tim Burton films. 4.5/5

37) Prom Night (2007) (Blu-Ray) - First time viewing this one. Pleasantly surprised. Descent slasher story. 3.5/5

38) Screams of a Winter Night (Blu-Ray) - Late 70's low budget drive-in style anthology. 3/5

39) A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 3: The Dream Warriors (Blu-Ray) - A classic! 5/5

October 19

Terror Television

- October 1: Creepshow s1, ep1 "Gray Matter / The House of the Dead" (Shudder) (45 Minutes) - I've been looking forward to this series for some time. The first episode consisted of two stories in about a 45 minute time frame. The first, Gray Matter, was directed by executive producer Greg Nicotero. It was quite enjoyable and as expected it had good special effects/gore. The second story was probably my favorite. Definitely had a good creep factor. A promising start for the series. recommended! 4.5/5

- October 3: Creepshow s1, ep2 "Bad Wolf Down / The Finger" (Shudder) (45 Minutes) - Another fantastic episode. My only complaint is I wish the first story was about 15 - 20 minutes longer. It seemed rushed, but there are some great nods to werewolf movies. "The Finger" is directed by Greg Nicotero so again we get not only a cool story but some great gore effects. The length of this one was about right. 4.5/5

- October 12 Creepshow s1, ep3 "All Hallows Eve / The Man in the Box" (Shudder) (45 Minutes) - Two more great stories. I keep wishing they were just a little longer run time, though these two didn't feel rushed. 4.5/5

- October 17 Creepshow s1, ep4 "The Companion / Lydia Layne's Better Half" (Shudder) (45 Minutes) - Two more solid stories. Again the first felt like it could have been 10 minutes longer. Second one was a creepy entry from co-writer Greg Nicotero. 4.5/5

- October 27 Creepshow s1, ep5 "Night of the Paw / Times is Tough in Musky" (Shudder) (45 Minutes) - This week's second story is my least favorite of the year so far. Not horrible, just didn;t enjoy it as much as the others. 4/5

Re: The 15th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread***

Bold = First-time Viewing

September 13th
1. Friday the 13th (original)

September 30th
2. Mad Ron's Prevues From Hell

Besides a few well-known movies, there were also some interesting trailers for movies that must have been pretty low-budget 80s video store fodder as I didn't recognize them. Enjoyed watching but the 'framework' for this comp was pretty bad and not funny at all. Still, a good way to kick-off October!

3. Parents

Pretty good, a tad slow, and it was more black humor than and out and out horror-comedy - I wasn't really knowing what to expect going in.

October 1st

4. 1922


Not bad by any means, but a bit slow with a payoff that is too little too late but I did like the atmosphere, crime, and guilt elements of the drama quite a bit. Just needed something a bit less been-there done-that about the horror elements. I'm not familiar with the original King story to know if it was more complex or not. Worth a watch but probably not multiple viewings.

5. Gerald's Game

Overall, I still have only seen a very small number of Stephen King movies that I thought worked great on screen. This one is mostly a one-woman show inside her head - seems a bit too similar to Misery in my mind. Good movie but didn't really excite me too much

October 2nd

6. Saw

I haven't been able to make it through all the movies in this franchise, but this one wasn't ultra gory and kept me entertained. I still think Cary Elwes is terribly bad in his acting here which is surprising since he's obviously been in good movies - maybe horror just wasn't his genre?

7. Saw II

I like the twist climax of this one but I find the needle motif a bit hard to watch and it kind of gets boring after a time. Don't really find this one as good as the first.

October 3rd
This must be anthology night, Amicus style!

8. The House That Dripped Blood
When I was a kid, I was an AVID, obsessed reader of Robert Bloch - scoured used book stores, read everything I could find at the time. It was an absolute joy when I realized someone was adapting stories into these really cool anthologies. Might have been my first real exposure to Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee at the time and I just fell in love with them long before I knew about their Hammer legacy.

Unfortunately, some of the stories in these Amicus movies don't hold up for me quite as well now as when I was young. An enjoyable watch, but the effects are undeniably bad here. The little girl in the third story is my favorite part - just all around creepy.

9. Asylum

Another Amicus anthology. I like this one better than The House That Dripped Blood overall. Really good stuff.

10. The Monster Club

Not an Amicus movie, but an anthology done by Roy Ward Baker who directed some Asylum so I figured it fit right in here. I liked the atmosphere of the pictures, the framework story was a bit too 80s cheesy for me, but I always like seeing Vincent Price so I'll give that part a pass.

October 4th

11. Dead-End

I wasn't sure what to make of this for awhile. First few minutes just seemed like a made-for-tv bad acted movie, couldn't tell if it was horror or a comedy as some of the characters were a bit too manic for me to completely take the situation seriously. I think I liked it quite a bit though.

12. Halloween (1978)

Seen this many times - somewhat of a staple.

October 5th

13. Halloween II (1981)

Overall, I enjoy this one - kinda just wish parts 1 and 2 were together as I usually watch them back to back anyway.

14. Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)

I guess this is a movie you have to be in a particular mood for. Last time I watched it, I didn't much like it and found it horribly dated and found it hard to sit through. This time, I liked it quite a bit better - now I just need to find a way to get that song out of my head.

15. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)

Rachel is always the weak link in this film I think - she just isn't a very good actress. Danielle Harris isn't bad for a child, not particularly good at crying, but a decent pair of lungs. Both Friday the 13th and Halloween tried to play with audience expectations of having the child victim turn into the killer but neither were super great at following up on that premise.

October 6th

16. Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989)

Whew, what a difference a year makes. Since I thought Danielle Harris was not bad in 1988, she must have gotten some acting lessons or bad direction because suddenly she wasn't able to carry off this film well at all. Mostly a bore although Donald Pleasance still gets some good lines. What was it about the 80s and children with psychic powers that come out of nowhere?

17. The Horrible Dr. Hichcock

This one had a good atmosphere and color palette that I like from this era. It was a tad slow-moving or I was just having a hard time waking up this morning. I'd watch it again though as I do like Barbara Steele. For some reason, I didn't realize it was an Italian made film until I looked it up on Wikipedia. I assumed it was a Hammer or Amicus when I started watching.

18. The Collector (2009)

Ok, this movie made me physically ill. Torture porn is not my sub-genre at all. Strange, that I've gotten somewhat used to violent Euro-horror like Zombi Flesh-eaters or The Beyond, but I just can't take this kind of abuse to my senses. Terrible, terrible movie

19. The Vault

Part haunted bank, part zombie movie, part crime film - and with James Franco. It was pretty good for a watch.

20. Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers - The Producers Cut

This one just doesn't do it for me - forgot Dimension started milking the franchise around this point

21. The Wicker Man (2006) - Rifftrax Commentary

Just makes me wonder...what's the best blu-ray for the classic "The Wicker Man" ?

October 7th

22. Two Sentence Horror Stories

Short 8 episode series from the CW I believe, caught it on Netflix. Each episode is less than 20 minutes. The premise sounds like it should be kind of dumb but I enjoyed it pretty well. It's an anthology show based around those reddit/quora type posts "Try to scare me in two sentences" type thing. I can easily see a concept like that going bad but I think it partially works because it doesn't try for overlong episodes - gets in, gets out. Each episode begins with the first sentence in the story - then expands upon it - and ends with with the second sentence - the 'twist' so to speak.

23. Apostle

Not bad. Always like a good blood-sacrifice turn of the century cult movie.

October 8th

24. Snakes On A Plane

Ok Ok, it doesn't have the keyword 'horror' in the IMDB but any movie about snakes on a m-f-in' plane has got to scare the crap out of you. And, strangely enough, it's a ridiculous concept that I find too enjoyable for its own good.

October 9th

25. Shadow of the Vampire

Ok, technically I did see this when it came out in theaters - I remember being a bit bored with it at the time. But really I don't remember a single thing about the movie. It is a tad slow but I think it's well acted and has some nice sets and atmosphere. Defoe and Malkovich are always interesting at least

26. The Fog (1980)

Picked up the Scream steelbook so I figured it was a move due for a rewatch. I like this one, not as good as Halloween but it does give me a few chills. Didn't this one get a lousy remake awhile back?

October 10th

27. Suspiria (2018)

I really wanted to see this one and now I kinda wish I hadn't

October 11th

28. The Thing (1982)

The Thing has so much going for it beyond just a genre film. I think Carpenter got the feel of a Lovecraft film bang on with The Thing and In the Mouth of Madness better than any other direct adaptation I've seen. I love the paranoia, the remote location, the apocalyptic ending. While John Carpenter has made several films I really like, The Thing just feels at a different level of craftsmanship. I still haven't read Who Goes There? though I've always meant to - I like that this movie is supposed to be more of a new take on the original story rather than trying to remake the Howard Hawks film which allows both to stand on their own. I do still like the original, but for very different reasons and not nearly as much.

October 12th

29. Black Sabbath (1963)

Finally watching this one - I'm definitely a sucker for anthology films of the period and so far I've really enjoyed all the Bava I've seen - still got some more to catch up on. His use of color is highly stylized and I assume influence Argento a decade later.

30. Candyman

Kind of like Ring, I found the movie took awhile to really get going with the urban legend and the investigation before it really hits its stride. For that reason, I still like Hellraiser more, but this definitely had some of the highest production values I've seen yet in a Clive Barker film.

31. Prince of Darkness

The middle film of the Apocalypse trilogy never grabbed me the way The Thing and In the Mouth of Madness did. I don't think I'm alone there since I rarely see it discussed in the same breath as other Carpenter classics. It's certainly nowhere near the worst - I'm thinking, if anything, it is not as evenly paced as the others which makes it harder for me to stay focused on it.

October 13th

32. The Beyond

It's probably good that I warmed up with some other giallo and Italian horror directors before I was finally ready to dive into Fulci. Once I finally watched The Beyond 3 or 4 years ago, it really wasn't as difficult to watch as I had always feared. Definitely, has a lot of eye damage and one scene in which someone's throat gets torn out (like in Zombie 2) that is a bit hard for me to watch. I like the atmosphere, but I may like City of the Living Dead more. Honestly, of what I've seen of Fulci, I think I like his giallos more (Don't Torture a Duckling, Lizard in a Woman's Skin).

October 14th

33. Burnt Offerings

This one has a pretty good cast: Oliver Reed, Burgess Meredith, Karen Black, and Eileen Heckart. I suppose this one might be a tough sell as there have been a lot of similar house is alive type of movies, but I have been appropriately spooked by this one for 30 years or so.

34. The Mutilator

Uhm...I'm really trying to find something entertaining about this slasher, but most of the movie was too poorly lit to even be able to see the kills that well. The composer must have been high because the tone of some scenes was just all wrong. And the acting was worse than usual.

October 15th

35. They Live

Continuing to enjoy watching some Carpenter this month - I sold my scream factory editions a year ago but I felt like grabbing the steelbooks. Had to search a bit harder for this one but felt like I got an ok deal on it. It's definitely a flawed film but so much of it is just brilliant that I keep coming back to it. I think a lot has happened between 1988 and now but I love the way in which this film presents its social critique. Roddy Piper doesn't bug me particularly like he does some though.

36. The Omen

One of my favorite movies of the 70s, I feel tremendous suspense every time I watch it. Pretty much a staple for October. I really enjoy and admire The Exorcist but I saw this one long before I saw The Exorcist so I guess I have a soft spot for it.

October 16th

37. Damien, Omen II

Pretty good sequel. The acting is mostly good although I tend to think William Holden of all people is the most prone to overacting with the material here. The actor playing Damien here gets some clunky dialogue after he realizes his identity and is just not able to quite sell it - but the relationship with his 'cousin' is a pretty good. I like what the original screenwriter said about the first film maintaining Damien's innocence all the way through being a selling point as the second film is better in the first half than the second for a similar reason.

October 17th

38. The Final Conflict

I'm always conflicted about the final part of The original Omen trilogy. I don't think it is irredeemably bad or anything, but Sam Neil just doesn't seem to have the same innocent evil as the first Damien nor the piercing intent of the waking evil Damien of the second film - just think he was the wrong actor for adult Damien. While the first two films were certainly covered with religious trappings, it just felt weird having the anti-christ screaming about the Nazarene every 5 minutes in this one. I'm not entirely sure what I would have done with the movie to make it better, but that ending was pretty weak without a whole lot of tense build-up to the conclusion - I guess they tried but it just didn't work

October 18th

39. The Omen IV: The Awakening

It was somewhat of a reimagining: Girl anti-christ instead of a boy, the healing crystals and auras, the 'twin' surprise....still not very well done. There was no innocence about Delia in this one compared to Damien which let all the suspense out of the film.

October 19th

40. The Omen (2006)

I hadn't seen this in awhile, so I had forgotten that it had a pretty good cast too with Mia Farrow, David Thewlis, and Pete Postlethwaite. I still don't really know Liv Schreiber though and I missed the intensity of Gregory Peck in the role. I don't blame the kid as, for an anti-christ, he was kind of not-present in this movie if you ask me. I still like that Scream Factory included all these films in their recent box set, but I don't know if I'll ever be tempted to watch thie one again - just no point.

41. The Legacy

Fairly uninteresting and slow moving most of the time with a typical 70s folkie soundtrack during the opening scenes - always seems inappropriate in any horror film. It wasn't terrible though but not one of the greats

October 20th

42. Pulse (2001)

I never really got into the J-Horror craze in its prime. Now, thanks to Arrow, I've gotten the chance to see films like Pulse, Dark Water, and the Ring films. I was surprised at just how cerebral they are - the amount of deliberate scares seems few to me which makes it easy for me to get distracted by other things. I like the atmosphere and apocalyptic type ending to this one and I get the feeling that some of the things that happen in these films are rooted in folklore and cultural facets that I may not be aware of - I've certainly seen a lot of that in anime and some of the documentaries on the Ring boxset talked about that too. I tend to find that fascinating so I'm sure I'll keep exploring these types of films in the future too.

43. J.D.'s Revenge

A Blaxsploitation mixed with body possession film starring Louis Gossett Jr from the 70s....pretty fun one. Love the Arrow edition.

44. Baron Blood

Another Bava I haven't seen before and with every one I'm more and more impressed with Bava, especially in the use of color and gothic imagery. I watched the film in Italian but I'm tempted to go back and watch the english version to hear Joseph Cotton's own voice.

October 21st

45. Society
46. Brain Damage

Some great body horror type movies tonight. Both very funny and great 80s effects. Definitely two of my go-to October movies.

October 22nd

47. The Girl Next Door

I'm just not much for torture or revenge horror porn and there were a lot of background details that I would have liked to have known about to sell the plot a little better.

October 23rd

48. Basket Case

The acting isn't all that good compared to Brain Damage but the movie is very fun. I would love to see the sequels and Frankenhooker at some point.

49. Child's Play

The boy is a pretty terrible child actor - I think they could have gone with another kid for the sequels. I kind of wish I had the new remake to watch in a back to back comparison now.

50. Tales from the Darkside: The Movie

I'm a sucker for anthology horror movies. This isn't the best but it's pretty decent overall. I can't remember if I've seen this before - some of the scenes seem really familiar but I think I remember seeing commercials with these scenes back when I was a kid - so I'll say this is the first time through. Debbie Harry is very different here from Videodrome though.

October 24th

51. Cat in the Brain

This movie is both bad and good. or at least a heck of a fun time. More decapitations than you see in most films

October 25th

52. Creepshow

I swear I haven't seen this before but a few scenes seemed awefully familiar to me. I loved seeing Leslie Nielsen in this - strangely I think I prefer Creepshow 2 which seems to be an unusual opinion from what I've read. Still, I enjoy the anthology concept of the old horror comics stylings. I don't remember reading those specific comics as a kid, but I did have one or two horror comics I inherited from my brother, torn off covers, but I read those over and over again so this is very much up my alley.

53. Return of the Living Dead

I didn't see this til a few years ago but now it may be my favorite zombie film - the comedy aspect just hits all cylinders for me.

October 26th

54. Return of the Living Dead II

I didn't hate it as much as others seem to. I read a review saying this was more or less a remake, which I guess is one way of seeing it. I thought it was hilarious that the same actors were playing essentially the same part - kind of bad luck on their parts to always get stuck turning into zombies. If only they'd been in Part III maybe it would be more of an in-joke than seen as a lazy story. I think one thing that really hurts this film is the music - the first ROLD has that punk-rock music direction and character aesthetic going for it and ROLD II has Robert Palmer...big big mistake.

55. Horror Express

I hadn't heard of this Spanish horror movie before, but it has Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Telly Savalas, and Russians on a train - can't really go wrong here. A few cheesy effects but pretty solid 70s classic horror.

56. Waxwork

I have known about this film for years, mainly covershots, but figured it was too cheesy in an 80s way. I really liked it though and was surprised at how cool some of the sweeping soundtrack pieces were to the different 'waxwork' scenarios. Sequel any good?

57. Killer Klowns from Outer Space

I generally don't think Killer Klowns succeeded as often in melding horror and comedy as some of its contemporaries did like Return of the Living Dead, Evil Dead II, or Army of Darkness. I can't quite put my finger on whether it is the script itself, the execution, or just the cheap looking effects and klown design. It reminds me a lot of the Tobe Hooper remake of Invaders from Mars...I get the two confused a lot somehow. I honestly can't remember if I've finished this film before now - I know I've started it a couple times.

58. Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)

I liked this better the second time than when I first saw it - I think I was comparing it too much to the original. Not sure I really like Jessica Biel's character, but I did think the movie had some good tension building.

59. The Stepford Wives (1975)

For 2/3 of this movie, I wasn't sure it was really horror or not - kind of a body snatchers take on suburbia instead of commies?

October 28th

60. Dream No Evil

The first of the movies included on Arrow's American Horror Project Vol. 2. It had a few bizarre sequences which are tepidly entertaining, too much of it feels a drag even though it's only 84 minutes long. Perhaps made a few years earlier into the 60s...maybe made by Roger Corman or William Castle, we could have gotten a bit more psychedelic insanity...but not really here.

61. Dark August

Another one from the 70s collected in the American Horror Project Vol. 2 - slightly better than Dream No Evil. It's hard to say whether I like these films or not. I think volume 1 was a better collection of oddities, but it's always fun to catch something that has been forgotten. This one was pretty good for 2/3 and then I kind of lost interest in the last bit which doesn't say much I guess.

62. The Child

I think I like the third film in American Horror Project Vol.2 the best of the group. Acting is atrocious but somehow I still found it pretty interesting and compelling. I'm not sure if this should be cross-indexed with psychopathic scary children subgenre or zombie subgenre.

63. The Conjuring

I thought the first 45 minutes or so were pretty good, but the ending was a bit maudlin and bordered on cheese too much.

October 29th

64. Corruption

Just picked up this Grindhouse Releasing 1968 film starring Peter Cushing. A combination of Hammer aesthetics with an Eyes Without A Face type plot. It was pretty good - Cushing always is - perhaps a tad less than his Hammer or Amicus roles, and a bit more explicit violence than I'm used to seeing from him.

65. Multiple Maniacs

Well...it's listed as horror in IMDB, but the only thing really scary here is the acting. This was the first John Waters film I ever saw, and I'm still not sure how I feel about him as a filmmaker - but there are a couple scenes that I do really like in this movie that make it worthwhile for me. If, for nothing else, it's a good movie to watch along with some of the other low budget grindhouse/exploitation flicks in October.

66. I Drink Your Blood

Except for one decapitation scene at the end, I really am surprised this got the first X rating for violence...films like Bonnie and Clyde or some of the films by Hershell Gordon Lewis were released a few years earlier than this and I think were more shocking. Still, the acting wasn't all that bad surprisingly...I think the guy was right that meat pies shouldn't go with breakfast..

67. I Eat Your Skin

Aside from helping to generate the corresponding title for I Drink Your Blood, this movie doesn't seem like it would really fit a double-bill at all with the other film. The tone is just too different with this movie about voodoo practicing tribes. Dull in a 1950s kind of way....

October 30th

68. Castlevania Season One - Episodes 1-4

I think the it was Castlevania 2 I played as a kid - not any of the other ones. Enjoyed the season better than the first time, but I just am not sure why they needed to name it after a video game - is this line still popular these days? Will move on to Season Two finally.

69. Castlevania Season Two - Episodes 1-4
70. Castlevania Season Two - Episodes 5-8


Pretty enjoyable. Did seem there was a bit more talking and political intrigue than demons and vampires attacking people - but I'd watch a third season I think

71. The Living Dead In Manchester Morgue

I used to have the old Anchor Bay tin titled Let Sleeping Corpses Lie, but always thought it was going to be too gory and violent so I didn't watch it...until now. The movie was decently entertaining...I was a little creeped out that all the zombies sounded like they were having trouble 'breathing' or whatever it is that zombies do. I think I've come a long way since those Anchor Bay days and none of the violence bothered me in the slightest.

72. All the Colors of Giallo

Most of the documentary talked about Bava, Argento, and Fulci with only the last half hour talking about Lenzi, Martino, Aldi, Ercoli, etc...most of the genre discussion I already knew - saw a few films mentioned I hadn't heard about.

73. The Crush

I've avoided this movie since I saw the trailer back in '93, but I just couldn't resist seeing how bad it was once it popped up on Amazon Prime. So far, I'm not sure Cary Elwes has been in any good films after The Princess Bride and Kurtwood Smith had a couple of Red Foreman moments here that made me laugh. Alicia Silverstone was surprisingly better than I expected, and the production values were fairly slick. Apparently, being a crazy teenage stalker makes you sweaty AF - as Alicia Silverstone seemed like she was sweating more and more as the movie went on. Now I can put this one next to Hitchcock's Strangers On A Train as having a climax involving a carousel...how will I ever be able to tell which film was made by a master of suspense?!

October 31st

74. Sleepaway Camp

The kills were pretty tame or I'm just getting de-sensitized more and more...while the ending came out of left-field, I am not entirely sure what the motivation of the killer was...does it matter?

75. Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers

Supposedly a horror spoof in line with the late 80s trend, I didn't really laugh that much...even though you know exactly who is doing the killing, it's more in line with traditional slasher tropes.

76. Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland

So I think this is the best of the three since it has the great Michael J Pollard in it...but, on the other hand, how did they get the great Michael J Pollard to be in this? And on the third hand...I never ever ever wanted to see a sex scene starring Michael J Pollard...I did feel with the whole troubled youth angle that William Katt should have shown up somewhere so that was disappointing.

77. Masque of the Red Death (1964)

I think this is the best film Roger Corman ever did and is one of my favorite horror films ever made. First, it stars Vincent Price and I always like seeing Patrick Magee; secondly, it's use of color seems similar to Hammer films and perhaps Blood and Black Lace also released in 1964; finally, it seems a smart decision to take parts of multiple Poe stories and somehow make them work together into a very entertaining whole. I watch this one just about every year.

78. Halloween (2018)

I didn't like this as much as all the hype suggested I should. I'd probably put it on par with H20 - Jamie Lee Curtis seemed to be in here just to give Michael Myers a focus to escape since he can't be motivated by anything else...except stopping to hide in people's closets....I wasn't quite sure about that one.

79. Train To Busan

I really enjoyed this zombie horde movie from South Korea. I thought it did a better than usual job of showing just how fast Zombie-ism can take down civilization...sure the Romero films kind of take snapshots over time but this one felt like you were seeing everything collapse bit by bit as the train passed on.
