* Only One Theme Required to Complete.

Spoiler:
From the book "Heavy Metal Movies" by Mike "McBeardo" McPadden:

Freddy Krueger directs Evil Ed from Fright Night (he was also Wendell Tvedt in Fraternity Vacation) in a gimmicky, effects-heavy fright flick about Satan possessing callers by means of a " horror-scope" telephone line. The ring-dings include our bedraggled teen nerd hero, who soon turns into a purple-faced demon hell-bent on wasting his bully tormentors.

Upon release, 976-EVIL was a relative disappointment. A quarter century later, the VHS special is an automatic blast back to an extremely specific, knuckleheaded headbanger past. Aside from Robert Englund (yes, Freddy) behind the camera and Stephen Geoffreys (the aforementioned Ed/Wendell) in the lead, 976-EVIL traffics in rubber monsters, sticky gore, Satanic Panic, Spencer Gifts-ish punk chicks, and, in its every moment, the look and feel of an MTV hair metal video.

Besides all that, the central plot device is a pay-per-minute call-in number for a dubious entertainment service hustled hard via late-night TV ads. Circa 1988, these semi-scams were everywhere, offering prerecorded messages from teen idols, scandal queens, pro wrestlers, rappers, Howard Stern, and no dearth of metal bands, including Kiss (of course) and Warrant. There were also 900-number Heavy Metal Movie spin-offs such as the Freddy Krueger line, where he'd tell you a scary story, and a Bill and Ted touch-tone time-travel game that touted the Wyld Stallyns van as a grand prize. I'd love to meet the winner.

976-EVIL generated a useless 1992 sequel, and the Deftones recorded the 2010 tribute "976-EVIL".


Heavy Trip was released on VOD on this day in 2018.

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:

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?

Goal: Dare I aim for ... 100?!?
Total: 121
First Time Views: 100

= first time viewing

Movies rated out of 5 stars (*****) based solely on my personal enjoyment.

September 13th (Bonus day for Friday the 13th and Full Moon)
1. The Black Cat (1934): The first and best of the Karloff/Lugosi pairings. I love that they are on equal footing and both have plenty of opportunity to shine. Watching them go at it in this movie is like watching hated rivals in a sports fight. Even when being civil to each you can see the hatred in their eyes. They escalate the jabbing and prodding until things just explode at the end. The look of the movie is incredible. And while numerous things in the story don't hold together (at times feeling like large sections of the film were edited out) it always remains fascinating. ****1/2

2. The Black Cat (1941): While my memories of the 1934 The Black Cat are strong, I didn't remember much of this (despite knowing I watch it a few years ago as part of a Universal horror DVD set). Rewatching it's not surprising why I forgot it ... the plot is a variation of the generic "relatives gather at creepy house for will reading and a killer is among them" (which was probably cliche even in the early 40s). There are some interesting names in the cast but they aren't given much interesting to do (Lugosi in particular is practically invisible). And there is a heavy dose of comic relief that typically annoys me when I try to enjoy an old classic horror movie (to the intent that imdb is probably correct listed "comedy" under this movie's genre ahead of "horror"). Still, these old movie zip by (with running times just over an hour) and there's enjoyment to be found. It has more of a claim to be based on the Poe story than the 1934 film and the big finale (set in a cat crematorium) is genuinely exciting. ***

3. Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943): I was going to cue up the original The Wolf Man, but it had been a long while since I've seen it's sequel (and I never watched my Blu-Ray of it) so I changed my mind. This was ok but not as good as I remembered it. Lugosi really doesn't look right as Frankenstein's monster. I still don't get how the Lawrence Talbot character was resurrected (so you kill a werewolf by shooting it with a silver bullet ... but if you dig up his grave and let the light of the full moon hit his corpse he comes back to life? ). And the ending was awfully abrupt, and anyone looking forward to the huge climactic battle between the two titular monsters was likely to come away disappointed. ***

4. Ginger Snaps (2000): My first rewatch since this was relatively new and I think it holds up. Though the low budget and lack of film-making experience reveal themselves at times (like with the werewolf effects, which were wisely limited), this still manages to be very effective at walking the lines between funny, scary, and at times moving. While you see the cast and crew of some low-budget indie movies disappear, it's telling that the main people involved with this (like actresses Emily Perkins and Katharine Isabelle and director John Fawcett) launched careers in entertainment. ****

5. Cat People (1982): I can understand how many people don't like this movie. Those coming for a horror movie will find themselves with a soft-core romantic fantasy for the most part. But non-horror fans will likely be put off by the gore (not to mention the creepy incest angle of the story). But this has always been a favorite of mine. Nastassja Kinski was an early celebrity crush of mine (I was an early teen when this came out) and she's at her most captivating here. There's prime Malcolm McDowell who's always a fun actor to watch. Georgio Moroder and David Bowie's music set a great atmosphere. I like the New Orleans setting and it's a very stylish-looking movie. ****

September 30th (Dusk)
6. Whoever Slew Auntie Roo (1971): Enjoyable enough light horror with a nice period-peice Christmas theme and many recognizable faces. It never ended up going as "horror" as I expected. Maybe it's just me, but I found the "Auntie Roo" character (the "witch" in this Hansel and Gretel retelling) much more sympathetic than the main children. In fact, this seemed just as much an "evil child" story to me by the end, but reading some comments on imdb it seems few (if any) saw it that way. ***

7. ☼ American Horror Story: 1984 (2019): Episode 1; ☼ Dark Shadows (1969): Episodes 891-892.

October 1st
8. Eye of the Cat (1969): A mix of animal horror (but much less than the movie promises), family melodrama, and Hitchcockian thriller that didn't really reach a satisfying payout in any category. Shots of cats moving accompanied by scary music had about the same impact on me as the bunny scenes from Night of the Lepus. And the characters are shallow and unlikable not giving me much of an emotional investment in the story. I did really like how San Francisco of the late 70s was captured and there were a handful of effective shots and scenes. **1/2

9. Seven Dead in the Cat's Eye (1973): Kind of a bridge between Italian gothic horror of the 60s (and this director made two really good one earlier with Castle of Blood and The Long Hair of Death) and serial killer giallos of the 70s. Certainly a worthwhile movie for fans of either sub-genre of horror movie. ***

10. The Ghost Cat of Ouma Crossing (1954): Japan seemed to produce a number of these ghost movies around this period (with 1959's Ghost Story of Yotsuya being my favorite). They all follow the same formula: the first hour setting up the characters in which a really evil person (or persons) ends up killing someone good. And in the last half hour or so, the ghost (usually disfigured in some grotesque way) exacts their revenge. While the formula is familiar, the execution here was very good. And while it's usually a drag getting to the "good stuff" at the end, the portrayal of the cut-throat world of classic Japanese theater was fascinating to me. ***1/2

October 2nd
11. Brightburn (2019): While the movie didn't go any deeper (or to unexpected places) with the basic concept, it's still a great concept for a movie (Superman's origin story told as horror). There's something to be said for leaving some things unanswered and having a lean 90 minute movie. While it cut away from the horror, I got a chuckle out of the revelation over the end credits:
Spoiler:
that apparently there are evil versions of other DC superheroes (like Aquaman and Wonder Woman) popping up all over the world.
***1/2

12. ☼ Dark Shadows (1969): Episodes 893-895; ☼ American Horror Story: 1984 (2019): Episode 2.

October 3rd
13. The Fan (1982): I probably passed on seeing this one earlier since the plot-line sounded extremely generic (and maybe I was getting this movie mixed up with the 90s thriller with Robert DeNiro and Wesley Snipes). But it's anything but a conventional horror movie. It's not the kind of movie I can say I enjoyed, but there's a lot to admire from how it was put together (and I find myself dwelling on the movie for some time afterward). ***

14. Ma (2019): This reminds me a bit of older (60s and 70s) psychological thrillers that were showcases for Oscar-winning actresses. Octavia Spencer gets to go nuts in this one, and she's a lot of fun to watch. I was surprised at how long it took for this to kick into gear and become a horror movie (not really until the last 20 minutes or so). ***1/2

15. Dave Made a Maze (2017): I found this completely delightful. There are so many movies (especially horror) that are just variations of other things. But I don't think there's anything quite like Dave Made a Maze. Maybe it gets a slight ding for creativity since the same basic premise was from a Joe Hill story ("Voluntary Committal") from his 20th Century Ghosts collection (the story predates this movie by about 10 years and wasn't mentioned in the credits). But the characters and situations are different enough that I wouldn't call it plagiarism (and it's one thing to write a story ... it's another to bring it to life on-screen with minimal resources). ****1/2

16. ☼ Dark Shadows (1969): Episodes 896-899.

October 4th
17. Sometimes Aunt Martha Does Dreadful Things (1971): Dreadful indeed. I would've bailed part-way through if I wasn't counting for a challenge (and I'll be damned if I let my time spent watching this be "wasted"). There was potential here, to be sure. But this was just way too amateurish for me to be able to get into it. And there wasn't enough of the exploitation aspects (violence and sex) to make up for it. *1/2

18. The Cured (2017): Now this I thought was a nice little find. As burned out on zombie movies as I am, I need movies to bring something new to the table. And this does that: set in a world that survived a 28 Days Later style zombie outbreak, looking at how society adjusts with the survivors, the "cured" (most psychologically traumatized by memories of the infection, and ostracized by many), and still the thousands of zombie-like "resistant" (who the cure doesn't affect). ***1/2

19. Pyewacket (2017): Good subtle slow-burn demonic horror story set against a family drama backdrop (or maybe its the other way around). ***1/2

20. Miss Zombie (2013): Early on I thought this was trending towards a **1/2 or *** rating. But the melancholy tone and deliberate pacing really started to gel for me, and by the end I was surprised at how much emotional impact this ended up having for me. Really a startling difference in style from director SABU's earlier movies, which were hyper-kinetic action comedies. ****

21. ☼ Dark Shadows (1969): Episodes 900-903.

October 5th
22. Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker (1981): By far the better of the two movies I had recorded from a TCM "underground" double-header (the other being Sometimes Aunt Martha Does Dreadful Things). It had the cheap look of a made-for-tv movie (which at first I thought it might be, until the nudity and four-letter words). But had a good cast with several familiar faces, including Bo Svenson as a homophobic cop and Julia Duffy (who would become a regular on Newhart a couple years later, and does some nudity in this). And while the horror doesn't kick in until the end, there were enough weird goings-on to keep my interest. ***

23. ☼ Dark Shadows (1969): Episodes 904-907.

24. The Mad Magician (1954): A lesser Vincent Price movie (but still good by normal standards), and still pretty early in his career as a horror star. This was my first time seeing it in 3D. I can't say the format did any great good, except provide for a handful of cheap shots of stuff flying out of the screen. ***

25. Suspiria (2018): No doubt a polarizing movie (for a laugh, check out all of the outraged negative reviews on IMDb). If you're going to remake a beloved and classic movie, this is the way to do it: take just some basic elements of the original, and go off and make something brand new. Instead of gorgeous primary colors we get a bleak and washed out look. Instead of the electric Goblin score we get moody Thom Yorke (Radiohead) music. Afterwards I feel kind of dumb for not recognizing that Tilda Swinton played a triple role (one character under make-up I knew it was her but for another I had no idea). ****

26. The Night Eats the World (2018): Well-made, and takes more of a Last Man on Earth approach to zombie horror. Still, I've seen plenty of those kind of movies (both "last people alive" and zombie) and prefer getting something new or different in the movies I watch. **1/2

October 6th
27. Joker (2019): Didn't think I'd be going to the movies today, but the power in my house went out so I figured "what the hell". The Taxi Driver and King of Comedy influences are huge, and I could see the big ending coming (though to be fair, it's a Joker movie ... everyone had to know where it was going). Still thought it was very good. Phoenix is probably the best cast Joker ever with his sharp angular features and tall thin frame (not to mention having the acting chops to handle the role). **** Wildcard #1

28. Jaws (1975): One of my earliest theater experiences and an all-time favorite. *****

29. Videodrome (1983): While the VHS technology has aged, I think the themes of this movie (the ability of media to change its audience) is more relevant today than ever. ****1/2

30. The Hole in the Ground (2019): A solid, well-made movie that I just wish went further with its concept (a mysterious hole in the woods outside a small Irish town is populated by creatures that create doppelgangers of people that go in). ***

31. ☼ Dark Shadows (1969): Episodes 908-911.

October 7th
32. Await Further Instructions (2018): I quite enjoyed this Twilight Zone-ish sci-fi/horror. I feared that it would cop out and not reveal what was going on by the end, but it did (even though the explanation may not be to everyone's satisfaction). ***1/2

33. May the Devil Take You (2018): I enjoyed the director's The Night Comes for Us more. This was struggling to keep my attention until the horror kicked into gear (with some obvious Evil Dead riffing) towards the end. **1/2

34. Mohawk (2017): The subject matter had potential (a revenge horror/thriller with a Mohawk woman wreaking havoc on awful American soldiers in the early 1800's). Too bad the production was utterly incapable of doing a convincing period piece. I did enjoy seeing WWE wrestler Luke Harper (who was one of the only actors who looked like they belonged to the time period). **

35. The Golem (2018): Nice to see an Israeli production of this classic Jewish folklore monster story. I wasn't expecting this to be as gory as it was (with the title monster literally ripping people to pieces). ****

36. Head Count (2018): OK urban-legend type horror movie. I appreciate character development, but this movie's characters were a bit of a chore to stomach (made tougher by the fact that the first hour has very little horror and is mostly watching a group of 20-something assholes drink and smoke pot). **1/2

37. ☼ Dark Shadows (1969): Episodes 912-916.

October 8th
38. Errementari (2017): Subheading of The Blacksmith and the Devil (which does a better job saying what it's about). I enjoyed this quite a lot, though viewers shouldn't expect scares (think of this as more of a fairy-tale). And this may be the first movie I've seen in the Basque language (which is spoken by less than a million people in parts of Spain and France). ****

39. Cam (2018): This could've never gone in a horror/thriller direction and I would've liked it. Hell, I probably would've liked it more since the inside look at the life of a camgirl (the screenwriter was one, and incorporated a number of her experiences into the movie) was fascinating. The thriller part had potential but the resolution just didn't seem well thought out.
Spoiler:
What the hell was that? Was it supposed to be some sort of advanced AI "duplicating" the camgirls? What was the hacker guy's role? Is there some vast camgirl conspiracy? I can see getting away with continuing to make money off a dead girl, but wouldn't it be really easy for the authorities to figure out something wrong was going on when they duplicated active camgirls?
***1/2

40. In the Tall Grass (2019): This could've been great at 30-45 minutes, but the story is stretched way too thinly to fill 100 minutes. One RT reviews nails it for me by commenting how amazing it was that the movie loses your interest so quickly. Things pick up later, but it just wasn't good enough for me. **1/2

41. The Maus (2017): Intriguing movie that's not a conventional horror movie (though Netflix listed it as one). I appreciate movies that take me to places unfamiliar to me ... and post-war Bosnia (and the emotional aftermath of a Bosnian survivor of Serbian atrocities) is certainly one them. ***1/2

42. The Perfection (2018): I'm glad I went into this mostly blind, because that's the best way to experience it. I love movies that convince me things are going one way, and successfully pull the rug out and go another. Sure, everything may not hold up to logical scrutiny but sometimes you have to let little things go and enjoy the ride. ****

October 9th
43. Laddaland (2011): Pretty routine ghost story elevated by good character development and giving me a glimpse of life in a country I'm not familiar with (Thailand). ***1/2

44. Night School (1981): Maybe another example of "I've seen way too many of these" but I picked the killer's identity as soon as the character first appeared on screen. This plays more like a detective story than slasher, and now is probably most notable for being the debut of Rachel Ward. Solid enough movie, and I look the look of the killer and how the ritualistic killings tie into primitive tribes. ***

45. ☼ Dark Shadows (1969): Episodes 917-922.

October 10th
46. Lifechanger (2018): The filmmakers had a good idea with a twist on doppelganger horror. Though despite running a brisk 80 minutes much of the movie felt repetitive (another example of what would've been a great short story is stretched too thin for a feature-length movie). I can see horror thrill-seekers being let down by the ending, but I liked the tragic consequences of what happened:
Spoiler:
Drew kept killing all of those people, fearing his rotting as he spent longer in one form meant he was dying. But it's not until the end, when he's in his 70s and gives up on life, that he found it letting the process complete would let him go back to his real self.
***

47. The Dark (2018): I need to watch something happy because this is another depressing one. Again, not a movie for those looking for thrills. At times too slow moving for its own good, but picked up (and got its emotional core) when the zombie girl meets the blinded boy. ***1/2

October 11th
48. Revenge (2017): I'm generally not a fan of rape/revenge horror, but thankfully this didn't dwell on the rape for very long. And the revenge-part leaned more kinetic thriller than horror (which is fine by me). There's not much to the story and the heroine's transformation from subservient mistress to Rambo (apparently aided by psychedelic drugs) wasn't convincing. But the movie has a lot of visual and auditory flair and it felt much shorter than it's running length. ***1/2

49. Monster Party (2018): Not to be confused with Mad Monster Party or Party Monster. An entertaining enough horror movie, if not particularly original (we recently saw a similar premise in Don't Breathe, although this plays things a bit sillier). ***

50. Curse of the Demon (1957): Monster movies of this era usually suffer when they have to reveal the monster (and it looks more laughable than frightening). But the demon in this still looks fantastic. Fun trivia that I just learned: inserts of the demon were put into the movie by the producer against the director's and writer's wishes (with the writer so angry he said he'd shoot the producer dead if he ever saw him). I think the reveal at the end works wonderfully ... but I forgot the movie showed the demon pretty well at the beginning too (and I think it might've been better to only have the ending reveal). ****1/2

51. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 923-926.

October 12th
52. The Dead Don't Die (2019): There are some chuckles, and it's fun seeing all these wonderful character actors and cameos. Mostly a big missed opportunity considering the talent of the people involved. **1/2

53. Good Manners (2017): Takes a while to get where it's going (and a good bit of the first 45 minutes could be trimmed away losing very little). But once it gets there, it becomes one of the more unique and moving werewolf movies I've seen. Also features perhaps the cutest werewolf in movie history (though the Teddy Bear werewolf at the end of The Howling gives it run for its money). ****

54. Crawl (2019): Lean and mean, it's a simple effective thrill-ride of a movie. ***1/2

55. Gwen (2018): RT listed it as a horror movie, so I'm counting it. It isn't though (and its probably best that viewers don't go in expecting one otherwise they'll come away disappointed). Instead it's a drab, dreary, depressing drama of a farm in 19th century Wales. **1/2

56. Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964): The first multi-monster mashup for Godzilla, and a favorite of mine from when I was a kid. This one's just jammed packed: we have girls from Venus, a princess on the run from assassins, some songs from the tiny twins from Infant Island ... and of course Godzilla (who begins his face turn), Rodan, Mothra, and the debut of the title monster. The only negative is here is where we can see the beginnings of the series into kiddie fare (most noticeably in a slapstick monster negotiation). ****

57. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 927-930.

October 13th
58. Child's Play (2019): Maybe not a "cool" opinion, but I enjoyed this one. I liked how the original of Chucky was sci-fi instead of supernatural, and Chucky's control of smart devices opened up new possibilities for mayhem. Brad Dourif's vocals were iconic but Mark Hamill is legendary at voice-work (especially evil characters). "This is for Tupac!" ***1/2

59. Tigers Are Not Afraid (2017): One of my favorite first-time views this challenge. Reminded me of Pan's Labyrinth in being a girl's fantasy overlaid with real-world horrors (but instead of Spanish Civil War, the current crime-ridden areas of Mexico). ****1/2

60. Depraved (2019): Far overrated at Rotten Tomatoes (with a 87% score), which was a bit disappointing since I like Larry Fessenden's earlier horror movies and that made it sound like this was his masterpiece. It's ok, but adds very little to the extremely familiar story of Frankenstein. While the actor playing the "monster" did a good job, the ones playing the scientists weren't convincing at all (they didn't seem like people who could pass a biology course let alone be geniuses in the field). **1/2

61. The Wind (2018): Another slow-burn horror story that brings a new (at least to me) setting: the sparsely populated American West prairie. Which was a really good idea since the setting is alternatively beautiful and terrifying (especially when you try to imagine what life was like in these isolated farms). It didn't completely hang together for me, but certainly a worthwhile movie. ***

62. Invasion of Astro-Monster (1965): Mostly a rematch of Ghidorah, minus Mothra and plus some condescending aliens from Planet X. Still fun times going through these old favorites again. Some silly points, but it gave us this classic moment:

***1/2

October 14th
63. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 931-934.

64. Still/Born (2017): Solid, if very familiar, movie. Though probably not the best time for me to watch: I've been tormented by new neighbors with a screaming baby (that I can hear through the walls). There's a window of quiet where I can watch a horror movie ... and I pick a movie with a screaming baby throughout ***

65. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 935-938.

October 15th
66. The Final Wish (2018): I had higher hopes for this because of some good reviews (88% on RT, albeit from only 8 reviewers). Another example of "OK, but I've seen this done already (and better)". Wishmaster, as cheesy as it was, is still my gold standard for evil genie movies. **1/2

67. Darlin' (2019): Very weird follow-up to Jack Ketchum's cannibal movies The Offspring and The Woman (though for some reason Off Season, his first novel that introduced things, hasn't been filmed). Those movies were alright, but I found this to be an all-over-the-place mess.**

October 16th
68. ☼ The Haunting of Hill House (2018): Episodes 1 and 2.

69. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 939-942.

October 17th
70. ☼ American Horror Story: 1984 (2019): Episode 3 and 4.

71. ☼ American Horror Story: 1984 (2019): Episode 5; ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 943-944.

October 18th
72. Nightmare Cinema (2018): I had high hope for this anthology based on reviews and the talent involved but largely came away disappointed. The first story (an 80's-style slasher from the director of Juan of the Dead) worked the best for me. But others (like segments by Joe Dante and David Slade) had a good set-up but missed the landing (which is crucial for a 20 minute short ... it's all about the landing there). And with anthologies you typically want to end with your best ... and here the last segment is by far the worst (an exceedingly unoriginal and at-time amateurish story by Mick Garris). **

73. The Wizard of Gore (2007): There were some good elements here. Despite a low budget, I liked the neo-noir style. Crispen Glover is perfectly cast as the title character, and it's always fun to see genre vets like Jeffrey Combs and Brad Dourif show up. I have to give the filmmakers credit for trying new things compared to the original (which, like many HG Lewis movies, was just an excused to show gore), even if didn't end up going in a particularly satisfying direction. **1/2

74. Rawhead Rex (1986): Somehow I've never seen this before despite being a huge Clive Barker fan (beginning when he broke out in the early 80s with his Books of Blood collections). But while he was at the peak of his powers as a writer at this time, it just doesn't translate to a screenplay. This was ok to be sure. The rural Irish setting works well and thankfully we have an authentic Irish cast instead of Americans doing bad Irish accents (though the actors playing the children of the Americans who are the leading characters fail miserably at American accents). The story is a pretty routine monster mash. The biggest liability is the laughable looking monster. **1/2

October 19th
75. Possum (2018): This could've been a good short, but at 85 minutes was repetitive and dull. Plus, the idea of a dreary brooding character study of someone battling personal trauma and insanity if by no means a new one. This does have one super creepy spider puppet. *1/2

76. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 945-948.

77. Thoroughbreds (2017): "Heathers meets American Psycho" on the poster made me think this would be a reasonable wildcard (if not an outright qualifier for the challenge). Much lower key than I was expecting (and not as daring and unpredictable that reviews made it sound), but still ultimately worthwhile. While not his final released film, it looks like this may have been last movie Anton Yelchin worked on before his death. *** Wildcard #2

78. Nina Forever (2015): I love when movies strike a tone that will intentionally make most viewers dislike it. No scares for the horror crowd, too serious for those who heard this was a comedy, and too gross for art-house fans. But for the small section of viewers that can handle this, it really is an original way of making a movie about how life tries to continue after tragedy. ****

79. Hell House LLC (2015): With horror houses doing their business now, a perfect time for this movie. Yes, it's another found footage horror movie ... but it's a good one. And thankfully it's not all shaky cam. ***1/2

October 20th
80. Devils of Darkness (1965): Decently made, if not up to Hammer standards. I don't think I've seen this before (but I may have ... this wasn't particularly memorable). The vampire was a real dumb-ass at the end:
Spoiler:
first, his whole castle just falls apart around him. Sinestre escapes only to run right into the shadow of a cross and just dies without the hero doing anything. And why is a vampire holding his big satanic ceremony in the daytime anyway?
**1/2

81. The Devil's Hand (1961): While not the stinker I feared this might be, it wasn't particularly interesting. Special kudos for commitment to the basement bongo player, who evidently is banging away on his bongos even when no one is around. **

82. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 949-951; ☼ The Simpsons (2019): Treehouse of Horror XXX (Episode 666!).

83. Ebirah, Horror of the Deep (1966): The change in directors really shows as this looks and sounds little like previous Godzilla movies. But while I'm not a fan of Jun Fukuda's later Godzilla movies, this movie's a lot of fun. ***1/2

October 21st
84. Book of Blood (2009): And yet another example of a story that would've been perfectly fine as a short but stretched far too thinly for feature length. Not helped at all by the lack of any likable characters. **

85. Who's Watching Oliver (2017): Has an oddball charm that walks the tough line between hilarious and horrifying. Fun use of a theme park in Thailand too. ***1/2

86. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 952-955.

October 22nd
87. ☼ The Haunting of Hill House (2018): Episodes 3 and 4.

88. Masks (2011): The 70s Italian horror influences are worn on its sleeve (and clearly acknowledged). But I love those types of movies, and I like that the filmmakers here tried to make a legit movie in that style instead of joking with it (like The Editor) or going art-house (like Amer). ***1/2

89. Destroy All Monsters (1968): Not as awesome as I remember it being when seen as a kid (the "human" characters aren't particularly interesting, and there's little monster action in the middle stretches of the running time). And the climactic fight seemed horribly unfair: Ghidorah previously lost to Godzilla, Mothra, and Rodan. So why have a rematch but with Godzilla's side getting a bunch of extra monsters? I actually felt a little bad for Ghidorah ... can't he make any friends? Still, it's fun getting all of the Toho monsters together. Even though the Showa era would go on for another 10 years, in a lot of ways this feels like a finale. And considering how crappy many of the later Godzilla movies were, maybe it should've been. ***

October 23rd
90. ☼ The Haunting of Hill House (2018): Episode 5; ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episode 956.

91. Horror and Hamsters (2018): Not as bad as I thought it would be. It's so home-made and low budget that there's a charm to it. More of a comedy sketch show than horror anthology (and my favorite parts ran no longer than a SNL skit). It made me laugh a few times. But here's a huge disappointment ... I thought it would horror stories about hamsters. Instead, after every horror skit there was a short segment starring the filmmakers hamsters that had nothing to do with horror. The hamsters are sill awfully cute though! ***

October 24th
92. ☼ The Haunting of Hill House (2018): Episodes 6 and 7.

93. Nightmare (1981): While released in the 80s, this has feel of 70s grindhouse. It's a movie that's so scummy I literally feel like I need a shower after watching. Pretty similar to Maniac in that regard (and also in that the gore is way beyond most slashers of the time, even though it's nowhere near as convincing as Tom Savini's work). While not a good movie by any stretch, it's one that grabbed my attention and didn't let go. ***

94. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 957-960.

October 25th
95. ☼ The Haunting of Hill House (2018): Episodes 8 and 9.

96. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 961; ☼ The Haunting of Hill House (2018): Episode 10.

97. All the Colors of the Dark (1972): Fun mix of psychedelia, sex, satanists, and murder. In order to enjoy them, you typically have to give a lot of leeway to these movies for logic. But still this one gets really ludicrous. ***1/2

October 26th
98. Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla (1974): Mechagodzilla is a good addition to Toho's kaiju lineup (though King Caesar is silly looking). And like the best Godzilla movies there's lots going on, even in between the monster fights. Probably my favorite of 70's Godzilla (which isn't saying much). ***

99. Orgasmo Nero (1980): Joe D'Amato made a whole lot of interesting and memorable movies from the mid 70's to early 80's. This isn't one of them. The one saving grace is that Lucia Ramirez is absolutely adorable (as she is in D'Amato's other cheapie movies shot in the Caribbean at this time). *1/2

100. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 962-965.

101. Terror of Mechagodzilla (1975): This is it ... the end of Showa-era Godzilla. Blood and boobs were a bit surprising to see here ... I suppose the series was making a last gasp to turn away from being kiddie movies. **1/2

102. The House That Jack Built (2018): Matt Dillon was great and there certainly some striking (and horrific) moments. And there were also points that seemed tedious and pretentious (and had me struggling to make it through the 150+ minute running time). Though having seen everything else from Lars von Trier I can't say I didn't see those issues coming. **1/2

103. Girl on the Third Floor (2019): Former WWE star CM Punk does a very capable job here (and he's really asked to carry the movie with his acting). There's not much new here, but it's a solid indie ghost story. ***

October 27th
104. The War of the Gargantuas (1966): This was one kaiju that truly scared me as a kid, as it's easy to see why. Godzilla and his friends would just stomp cities ... any humans that he killed seemed to be almost collateral damage. But the green gargantua has a clear agenda ... eating people! It's disturbing to see him scooping up people and tossing them in his mouth (kind of like Attack on Titan many years later). The one negative of this movie is Russ Tamblyn. He clearly didn't give a shit about this movie (and Ben M. talked about it on TCM in his post-movie comments, and how Tamblyn thought he was too good for the movie and made life difficult for director Ishiro Honda). ***1/2

105. Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals (1977): Soft-core erotica and cannibal gore horror don't really go together, though Joe D'Amato gives it a shot. **1/2

106. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019): A fun movie by horror fans for horror fans, and a perfect fit for the Halloween season. ****

107. Dorian Gray (1970): Setting the story in swinging late 60's London fits perfectly. While the 1945 film is better made, this captures the evil decadence of the main character in a way that was just impossible in the earlier movie. ***

108. Death Spa (1989): One advantage of being straight to video ... this clearly didn't have to jump through the same censorship hoops of theatrically released slasher horror of the time. While not "good", this was wonderfully cheesy fun. ***1/2

109. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 966-969.

October 28th
110. Harpoon (2019): It would seem a single-set movie with only 3 characters where 2 of the characters are extremely annoying would be a tough sell. But the lighter silly tone of the movie ("comedy" is the first listed genre on IMDb), breezy pace, story twists, and brief running time make it an enjoyable watch. ***1/2

111. ☼ Tokyo Vampire Hotel (2017): Episodes 1 and 2.

112. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 970-973.

October 29th
113. Symptoms (1974): I really thought this was a first time view. But while watching there were so many familiar elements that I had to have seen this before. Still a well-made slow-burn psychological horror story. ***1/2

114. Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell (2012): If it looks like one of those ultra-low budget shot on video horror movies from the early 90's ... that's because that's when this was actually shot! Very impressive that the filmmakers had to perseverance to finish this, even if it took another 20 years. ***1/2

115. Night of the Cobra Woman (1972): This has it's charms, mostly due to the female leads and the muggy Philippines setting. But no thanks at all to the awful showing by the male lead "Duff" who gives a performance so wooden that it's insulting to all of the sticks and trees that did their best onscreen. **1/2

October 30th
116. The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975): This plays better on tv than you might think. There are plenty of songs and outrageous characters and performances that can entertain without the help of an interactive audience. While a midnight movie viewing is certainly something to do at least once, it really makes it impossible to watch the actual movie. ****

117. The Strangeness (1985): Too slow to get going for its own good. But I thought the last half was quite good. Obviously Alien inspired and the filmmakers created a unique monster on an obviously shoestring budget (looking like a pillar of slime with a mass of writhing tentacles). **1/2

118. ☼ Dark Shadows (1970): Episodes 974-977.

Halloween!!!
119. Young Frankenstein (1974): Not all of the jokes have aged well. But Marty Feldman remains hilarious, stealing every scene he's in. I love how this manages to spoof classic horror while still showing a great love for the genre. One of my absolute favorite comedies! *****

120. Psycho (1960): It's crazy to think about how audiences at the time responded to this, when nothing like this had ever been seen before. Even being familiar with the story, Hitchcock's building of tension is masterful. "We all go a little mad sometimes." *****

121. The Living Skeleton (1968): I know I saw this before, but remembered absolutely nothing about it (except for the phony looking skeleton props). A weird mix of classic ghost horror, exploitation, mystery, and even a little science-fiction. It doesn't all work, but it's certainly an interesting 80 minute ride. ***1/2

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

List is Final!



</body>
Mallratcal's 10th October Horror Movie Challenge!
Oct 1st
1.Videodrome☠☠☠☠ DVD87 Min1983
Great flick and James Woods is excellent. Shame he became such a werido. Long live the new flesh!
2.The The Unborn II☠☠DVD83 Min1994
I'm assuming this is a direct sequel as the movie starts with a woman walking up to a child and shooting it in the face, without explanation. Lots of child mayhem, there is a shootout in a maternity ward where they take cover behind those tiny bed things they keep babies in. The baby puppet is super ugly looking, which I think is intentional. Nothing really matters in the script, things just happen and people and events are just forgotten, but it's entertaining in it's badness.
3.Hatchet☠☠ DVD85 Min2006
Lots of wet, goopy gore. The humor is mostly good but it's people lost in the woods, running from a killer.
4.Crawl☠☠VOD87 Min2019
This was alright but I don't think it will be very memorable. It's got some spotty CG (spiders to the face) and it's not one alligator, it's a bunch of them.
5.Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf☠☠DVD91 Min1985
First time watching this in full. It's a direct sequel to the first movie, just with a much lower budget, or at least it looks that way. The brother of Karen (from the first movie) joins Christopher Lee, in Transylvania, where they are hunting the leader of the wolf pack, Stirba, (Sybil Danning) who is not only a werewolf but also a witch. The werewolves are not so much wolves but wereapes, maybe werebigfoots, and for how often they are talked up at being lethal they get mowed down pretty easily. Though regular silver is useless against them so they have to use titanium, because sure, why not? The brother is played by Reb Brown, and I know what you're going to ask, so no he does not steal a car in this movie, but maybe he stole that plane at the end. Edit: (Day 2) I keep thinking about this movie. There is an orgy at some point in the movie and one guy is just doing a handstand the entire time. And Lady Gaga ripped off one of Stirba's outfits.
Oct 2nd
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
6.Child's Play (2019)☠☠VOD90 Min2019
Some decent gore/kills (surprisingly low body count) there are a few good gags but I think I like my Chucky spazzing out and voiced by Brad Dourif. Not that Hammil was bad or anything, this was more of a subtle creepy performance. I thought the relationship between Karen and Andy.
7.Basket Case 3☠☠DVD90 Min1991
Another one I haven't seen in full until now. It picks up a few months after the 2nd movie. Belial has knocked-up Eve, and she is about to give birth so the group heads to Georgia, to see a Doctor friend of theirs. The murder begins after the babies are stolen. There's really not a lot of violence but it had some pretty cool special effects. Annie Ross really elevated the whole thing.
8.Escape Room☠☠½VOD99 Min2019
I really dislike when a movie stats with a flash forward. This was pretty good, Cube meets Saw. Now I want to see a movie about the logistics of pulling something like this off.
9.Duel☠☠☠☠½VOD90 Min1971
Another one I've only seen in broken chunks. Looks great in HD, sounds great too. So many fantastic shots and camera work. Tense as hell, love it.
10.Trapped Alive☠½VOD92 Min1988
First stinker of the challenge. 2 young women, 3 escaped prisoners and a cop get stuck in a mine with a cannibal. It also has Cameron Mitchell, and yes he does get drunk and falls asleep in a scene, he actually seemed really lucid in this. Really cheap movie, it's mostly the characters stuck in one set and bad effects. There is a twist at the end but it's no surprise. Movie felt Canadian but was filmed in Eagle River Wisconsin, close enough. Looks much older than '88.
Oct 3rd
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
11.Man's Best Friend☠☠ VOD87 Min1993
Not as good as I remembered. A research dog goes nuts and starts killing people, but not until almost the end of the movie. Had a weird tone, almost like it was going to be a kid friendly horror movie but got rewritten.
12.Terror Tract☠☠½DVD96 Min2000
An anthology framed around a real estate agent showing homes to a couple. First is a cheating couple trying to hide the dead husband, nothing new. 2nd is Bryan Cranston trying to protect his family from a little monkey that his daughter befriends. And 3rd is the best one, about a teenager who gets psychic flashes of a serial killer, known as 'The Granny Killer'.
13.The Curse☠☠VOD92 Min1987
A meteorite lands on Earth and infects the water supply on a farm, rotting the produce, animals and family from the inside. It looks like drinking uninfected water reverses the rot, but the father of the family buries his head and ignores the problem until the end. There are also greedy developers that attempt to hide the issue.
14.The Unborn☠☠½VOD83 Min1991
Guess I should have watched this before the sequel. The movie is more about the fear of having children/starting a family, or it is until an attempt at an abortion, that's when it switches to schlock, exploding babies and everything. A producer must have got scared as there is very little gore and I think just a single death up to that point. And all of the craziness happens in the last 10 minutes. The very last shot also reminded me of 2001: A Space Odyssey for some reason. Also had Kathy Griffin and Lisa Kudrow in small, early roles. I also appreciate the fertility doctor being named 'Dick'.
Oct 4th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
15.Leprechaun 4: In Space VOD95 Min1996
This was really boring and lacked any humor. The entire movie is marines hunting the Leprechaun on a space ship. And there is a side plot of a mad doctor who is trying to use the blood of a space princess to restore his damaged body but ends up as a spider monster. Leprechaun does burst out of a dude's dick though.
16.[Rec] (2007)☠☠☠VOD78 Min2007
Better than the remake even though it was almost shot for shot. This one felt more frantic and the night vision stuff at the end was WAY more creepy than the US one. I also liked the explanation of what caused the whole thing.
17.Soul Survivor☠½DVD84 Min2001
The big reveal at the end is no surprise, the movie was so heavy handed about it. The DVD has a terrible menu with the options being 'Reality' 'Dream' and 'Nightmare' I went with reality because it was first, no idea what the other 2 options were, and don't really care as the movie was not good. The movie plays like a dream the way it cuts to different scenes and characters forget about things they had just heard/did, I'm going to say that was intentional based on the "twist" ending, if it wasn't, yikes. I had assumed Dushku was the lead.
Oct 5th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
18.Hell Fest☠½VOD89 Min2018
A masked killer stalks a group of young people at a Halloween theme park. Pretty boring. It looked nice, they obviously spent a lot on sets but the movie had pacing problems. The kills happen all mostly together so most of the film is just people walking around the park.
19.Session 9☠☠☠½ VOD97 Min2001
First rewatch since this was initially released. It still holds up even knowing the ending. It works as a ghost story and about someone going mad. Forgot Larry Fessenden was even in this. Caruso delivers one of the best "Fuck you" lines ever.
20.Sleepaway Camp 2: Unhappy Campers☠½ DVD80 Min1988
There's no plot other than Angela kills the campers. There's just no flow, it's just Angel moving on to the next target and that makes it boring because you don't care about any of them. Lots of nudity though, plus it's short, yet still found the time to include a montage of the kills.
Oct 6th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
21.Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland☠☠ DVD79 Min1989
Picketing and football so only 1 movie today. Movie takes place 1 year after Part 2. This time the campers are from 2 groups: The Privileged and The Underprivileged. Everyone is a common trope but at least they were characters (unlike Part 2) and it's still just Angela going from kill to kill but this was a bit more fun.
Oct 7th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
22.Cat's Eye☠☠☠ VOD94 Min1985
First story is about a guy trying to quit smoking with the aid of a company that threatens to torture his family if he doesn't quit. Second is about a guy who has to walk along the edge of a building to win a bet with a mobster. Third is about a cat who guards a girl from a troll that lives in her wall and wants to steal her breath. The troll looked really good. Cujo and Christine make cameos.
23.Return of the Living Dead: Rave to the Grave☠½VOD94 Min1985
College students transform the zombie gas into pill form and begin selling it to other students, which ends up turning them into zombies. Really bad acting and some weird ADR. The humor is also really bad. I was not surprised to find out this was a Sci-Fi Channel movie. It's supposed to be set in America but is obviously filmed in Eastern Europe, also the university they are supposed to be attending appears to be a derelict building, or at least one in desperate need of a gardener. Tar-Man lives on... you know... as much as he really can.
Oct 8th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
24.Cropsey☠☠☠VOD84 Min2009
This was ok, it's a documentary about an urban legend on Staten Island kind of became true, as a man living at an abandoned asylum was convicted of kidnapping 2 children, though he was not convicted of murder. I would have liked the documentary to go more into the trial. The detectives involved fully bought into the Satanic Panic of thee 80s. I wonder if The Burning got the name from this urban legend?
25.Dead Calm☠☠☠VOD96 Min1989
This was fine. It starts with a small kid being launched through a windshield like a fucking missile, which made me laugh, so I'm a bad person. Billy Zane has a case of the botulism and hijacks Sam Neill and Nicole Kidman's boat, stranding Neill on a sinking yacht in the process and the struggle to survive begins. Billy Zane is good at playing crazy.
Oct 9th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
26.Wolf☠☠☠VOD125 Min1994
Joker and Catwoman get it on. A modern retelling of The Wolfman. Jack Nicolson is an editor at a publishing house that gets bi by a wolf and James Spader plays his rival in both business and wolf affairs. The final confrontation betwen them is kind of funny. Early appearance of David Schwimmer as a cop.
27.After Midnight☠☠½VOD90 Min1989
Anthology set on a college campus. The students are taking a psychology class about fear, and after the professor gets in trouble for scaring a student into peeing his pants the professor decides to teach the off book stuff at his house. That's the framing story and it ends very weirdly, or it does until it ends (for real this time) on a cliche. First story is a married couple entering a spooky old house. Second is 4 young women getting chased by vicious dogs. Third one is the best (always seems to work out that way) and is about a murderer stalking an employee at a phone answering company, played by Marg Helgenberger in her first movie roll.
28.Night KillerVOD92 Min1990
One of those movies that was made by an alien. Someone in a dime store rubber mask is raping and killing women. One victim survives but loses her memory and is then terrorized by another rapist. Super dumb twist ending because of course there has to be one of those. Bizarre movie.
Oct 10th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
29. Decoys☠☠VOD95 Min2004
Aliens come to a Canadian university in order to breed, problem is it kills the men by freezing them. It felt like a bunch of scenes were cut, like Nicole Eggert's, they might as well have not even had the character.
30. Pontypool☠☠☠½VOD96 Min2009
Good movie about a few people trapped in a radio station as the town they are in is going berserk. The townfolk are basically zombies that have heard the anti-life equation.
31. The Hitcher (1986)☠☠☠VOD97 Min1986
Way more action packed than I thought it would be. I assumed it was going to be a more subtle cat and mouse game. Like most things it needed more Rutger Hauer.
32. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!☠½VOD83 Min1978
I was really hoping to like this but it didn't click with me. Some super dated references but that's to be expected with a 40 year old movie. Just not my thing I guess.
Oct 11th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
33. Hatchet II☠☠VOD85 Min2010
Picks up the second the first movie ends. The main protagonist has been recast with Danielle Harris and her character has changed as well (she spends most of the movie in tears, so less ass kicking. The special effects team has also changed and they don't look as good as they did in the first movie. But Tony Todd is the 2nd lead, which is great. They go back to the swamp to retrieve some bodies and end the curse of Victor Crowley.
34. Children of the Corn☠☠☠ VOD92 Min1984
I used to dislike this movie when I was younger but it's pretty good. A supernatural force that lives in the cornfields commands the children to kill the adults. The children also kill their own once they become 19 years old, and they convert the corn into fuel, it's never revealed why, just pointless busy work I assume. Also I know Nebraska is sparsely populated but the kids having free reign over a town for 3 years is a bit of a stretch.
Oct 12th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
35. Tales of Halloween☠☠☠ VOD95 Min2014
A pretty fun anthology of 10 tales, so even if one isn't your thing the movie moves along quickly. Lots of easter eggs as well.
36. Pet Sematary (2019)☠☠VOD100 Min2019
I liked that Louis was able to have a conversation with the one he brought back but think it should have leaned into the Wendigo stuff more, I've not read the book but this seemed like the most interesting part of the story. The Zelda stuff was wasted, the original freaked me out and this just didn't have it. The Starcrawler cover of Pet Sematary was good though.
37. A Quiet Place☠☠☠VOD90 Min2018
I liked it but I have many questions. Why not become river folk? Or waterfall people? Why have a baby? And why leave her when she's so close to her due date? Monsters didn't seem all that hard to kill. I know the answer is "There would be no movie otherwise." It had some good tension.
38. Schizoid☠☠ Blu-Ray89 Min1980
A maniac starts killing members of a support group. They do a good job with all of the red herrings. The decor in the movie was hideous.
Oct 13th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
39. Nosferatu☠☠☠☠VOD88 Min1922
Never seen someone so happy to be traveling to the land of robbers and ghosts before.The woods were not haunted by a werewolf but by a werehyena.
40. Hatchet III☠☠VOD81 Min2013
Picks up right where the last one left off. Marybeth goes to the cops to report the slaughter. She gets arrested and the police go to the island and start getting killed. This time the theory is if they give Crowley his father's ashes that will end the curse. Marybeth's character changes again in this movie and she no longer wants any part it and is very confrontational, so more inline with the first movie, except she no longer wants revenge. Lots of nice call backs and Sid Haig has a small role where he's horribly racist but still funny.
41. Night of the Howling Beast☠☠½VOD87 Min1975
Scientists travel to Tibet to catch themselves a bigfoot (that looks like Chewbacca). Paul Naschy scouts the area and meets some hot demons, I think? They transform him into a werewolf, which comes in handy as a local warlord captures or kills the rest of his expedition. Naschy also beds a bunch of good looking women then either tells them to keep clear of him for a few days or kills them. Gotta respect that game. Other then the opening of the movie the Yeti is absent until the final 7 minutes of the movie when we get the big showdown, which is ok as the Yeti is a bit of a bitch. The movie moves along quickly and is pretty fun.
Oct 14th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
42. Venom (1981)☠☠☠VOD92 Min1981
This was enjoyable. A kidnapping goes wrong (when don't they?) when a boy's pet snake turns out to be a black mamba. It's basically a siege movie with the kidnappers trapped in the house with the snake and the police surrounding the joint. The abducted don't do much of anything, there are no heroics, which was actually kind of nice.
43. Black Christmas (2006)☠☠½ Blu-Ray91 Min2006
It's not great but it's not bad. The use of color is really nice, it's a good looking movie.
44.Asylum☠☠☠½VOD88 Min1972
Anthology set in a mental institution. It starts with a Dr. applying for a position, the catch is he has to talk to 4 incurable patients and figure out which is the former head doctor of the Asylum. The story's are: A husband murders his wife and her pieces get revenge (the breathing head in a bag was creepy). A tailor creates a suit that can give life. A woman returns from a mental hospital only to run into her Tyler Durden. And a man makes tiny people that he believes he can make come to life. Only the 3rd story is predictable, the rest were quite compelling.
45.Murders in the Zoo☠☠☠½VOD62 Min1933
A jealous husband kills his rivals with the animals he supplies a local zoo with. Charles Ruggles was pretty funny in this. 2nd movie today where a mamba was on the loose.
Oct 15th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
46. Superstition☠☠☠VOD85 Min1982
A witch haunts a house that's owned by the church. The killings happen right away and are pretty great (exploding heads, saws) but things slow down once a boy goes missing and the exposition starts. Still a fun time though.
47.Dead Snow☠☠½VOD91 Min2009
Zombie Nazi's attack a cabin full of med students. The zombie's are in search of their gold, which will make them rich as astronauts! Felt a little bit long but there was some good action and humor.
48.The Devil's Candy☠☠☠½ VOD79 Min2015
I liked this. I genuenly didn't know how this was going to play out. It's about a family who just moves into a new house and begin to get menaced by the son of the former owner. He's also a child killer that hears voices, so he likes to play his guitar loudly to drown them out, which ends up getting him in trouble. Now if loud noise will drown out the voices why not just get some headphones?
Oct 16th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
49.Hide and Go ShriekVOD90 Min1988
High school kids have a graduation party in a furniture store after hours. The store has a bunch on mannequins and the killer goes around dressing up as them and as some of the kids. It's not good, it's like someone watched a bunch of horror movies then decided to make one themselves with the minimum amount of effort. Bad acting and it's just not interesting, most of the movie is the kids playing hide and seek.
50.You're Next☠☠☠½ Blu-Ray94 Min2011
Good flick that holds up to a rewatch.
51.[Rec] 2☠☠☠ <align="center">VOD85 Min2009
Good sequel. Picks up right where the last one left off. This one has a SWAT team and a priest/doctor enter the apartment in order to get a blood sample from the first infected. There is also a group of teens who snuck into the building just as it was getting locked down and the 2 groups stories intersect. It's full on possession this time. No ambiguities and the church was doing some pretty shady “research”
Oct 17th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
52.When a Stranger Calls Back☠☠VOD94 Min1993
This was ok but pretty uneventful. It starts with a new babysitter narrowly escaping after the kids she was watching get abducted. 5 years later she starts to get harassed again. That's when Jill and John from the first movie come in. The killer is a ventriloquist and him getting tracked down so easily felt cheap, in fact the whole 3rd act felt really rushed.
53.Zombeavers☠☠½VOD77 Min2014
This was fun. It's very generic but I enjoyed it. It's zombie beavers vs. college kids and eventually zombeaver/college kid, what more can I say?
54.Skinner☠☠VOD90 Min1993
Weird film, I think I may have seen this before on Scream, when that was a thing but I'm not sure. It's pretty low budget but is entertaining when Ted Raimi just cuts loose. Ted plays a serial killer that skins people and then fashions them into a suit. Ted is very slowly stalked by a past victim played by Traci Lords. Back to the budget thing, it would have been nice if they captured the audio a little better. Edit: I definitely have seen this before, just took a while to jog the memory.
Oct 18th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
55.Fright Night (2011)☠☠½Blu-Ray106 Min2011
There are some really good performances in this and that really elevates it. If it weren't for Yelchin, Farrell and Tennant it wouldn't be nearly as enjoyable.
56.The House by the CemeteryVOD86 Min1981
One of the “What?” subgenres of horror. If you are unfamiliar it's a movie where really nonsensical things happen, where all you can say is “What?”. You can either go with it or be frustrated by it. A family movies into the titular house and spooky things start happening. The old owner is still there, it turns out. I have so many questions but I doubt anyone involved with the movie would be able o answer them. The highlight of the movie is easily the most tenacious bat in film history. It attacks the father who runs up to his family and starts flailing around, scaring them and covering them in blood once he starts stabbing it.
57.Trilogy of Terror II☠½VOD90 Min1996
First time seeing this since renting it way back when. It's not as good as the first, the production values are certainly lower, and this came out 20 years later. 3 tales (aren't they all?) 1st a cheating wife murders her husband to get cash but runs into giant rats when digging up his body, it's alright. 2nd is a mother brings back her dead son with magic. The son is not happy and plays a long boring game of hide and seek with her. 3rd is a sequel to the first Zunni Doll story. The original has been retconned and Karen Black is now dead, but a doctor restores the doll which repays her by killing everyone. It's the best part but that might be because I like seeing the doll freaking the fuck out, sort of like Child's Play.
Oct 19th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
58.The Hitcher (2007)☠☠DVD84 Min2007
Not as good on a second watch. It sticks pretty close to the original except it's a girlfriend/boyfriend as the protagonists.
59.The Devil's Rejects☠☠½DVD107 Min2005
Good. The cops storm the Firefly farm and the family go on the run.
60.The Amityville Horror (1979)☠☠☠DVD117 Min1979
Finally got around to watching this. It's a good story of a family coming apart. That one kid was really bad with stairs.
Oct 20th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
61.Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem☠½Blu-Ray94 Min2007
It's really not good. All of the action happens in the dark and rain. An Alien outbreak happens on Earth, led by the PredAlien. The movie follows a bunch of super generic characters that you never care about. The only cool thing is the one girl's death via spinning blade.
62.The Chill FactorVOD86 Min1993
A group of snowmobilers find an old lodge that used to be a place of devil worship. One of the gets possessed and cue the murders. Low budget and dull, nothing happens until an hour in, there is a weird sex montage, and they tried to make the song '3 Blind Mice' creepy, it didn't work.
Oct 21st
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
63.The Faculty☠☠½Blu-Ray104 Min1998
The Breakfast Club meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers. It's good, a little long and there's really not a lot of action.
64.Dead Silence☠☠VOD92 Min2007
Pretty predictable twist at the end, they weren't even trying to hide it. It's an alright ghost story but one thing I really disliked was whenever a big scare was coming the audio would slow down and then go silent, so you are always ready for it.
65.Pledge Night☠☠½VOD90 Min1990
More of a comedy than a horror, the first 45 minutes are pranks being played on fraternity pledges as they go through hell week. The ghost of a dead pledge shows up to start the killing and that's when the movie became less fun. Still worth a watch.
Oct 22nd
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
66.Cube²: Hypercube☠½VOD94 Min2002
Big step down from the first one. The cool kill rooms are gone, replaced by lame CG ones but even those don't pose a threat, it's more one character going crazy. Also has some of the worst dead body FX I've ever seen.
67.Dogs☠☠VOD90 Min1976
Some good boys become bad boys as they pack up and start mauling people on a college campus. It's caused by a pheromone and might have something to do with a linear accelerator on campus. There's really not that many dogs and only a few large ones, the whole thing could have been prevented if someone had a vacuum.
68.Oculus☠☠☠☠VOD104 Min2013
Late to the party but this was really good. A brother and sister attempt to destory a haunted mirror that killed their parents.
69.The Thing from Another World☠☠☠½VOD87 Min1951
I like that the dialogue was very natural with people talking over one another and. No body snatching, the alien feeds on our sweet blood.The fire stunt in the barracks looked really dangerous.
Oct 23rd
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
70.Metamorphosis☠½Blu-Ray96 Min1990
A research scientist tests hos anti-aging serum on himself, which turns him into a dino-man. At first it just gives him green eyes (and he wriggles around on the floor like a worm) and extra strength, which he uses to beat up women. Stage 2 is oldman makeup that looks pretty good at first. In the end he turns into a full blown t-rex, which is so goofy looking it's adorable.
71.Happy Death Day 2U☠☠½VOD100 Min2019
I think I enjoyed this more than the first. I assumed it was going to be a retread but with a different character but it included multiple dimensions and kept things fresh.
72.Freaks☠☠☠½VOD64 Min1932
A greedy circus performer marries and tries to kill her “freak” husband, to gain his riches. I like that The Strong-Man is just today's average man or Dad-Bod Man.
73.The Clovehitch Killer☠☠☠½VOD109 Min2018
A teenager suspects his father is a serial killer. Super religious family and the dad appears to be a good guy. It's pretty much the story of BTK. It's slow but it's fairly tense. The kid at the beginning really messed up though. He should have admitted it was his dad's truck. Sure the girl would think you're a nerd but that's way better than a sex weirdo, that's something you spring on her way down the line, what a nerd!
74.The Earth Dies Screaming☠☠☠VOD62 Min1964
Everyone on Earth just falls over dead, except for a handful of people in England, who them get attacked by spacemen, that look a lot like Cyber Men. These space robots can bring the dead back as their slaves.
Oct 24th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
75.Mimic☠☠½Blu-Ray 106 Min1997
Giant bugs stalk the underground of New York. It's pretty gross as it's all about bugs and poop.
76.The Craft☠☠☠Blu-Ray 101Min1996
4 high school girls dabble in witchcraft, one goes nuts and starts killing people, but that will happen.
77.Martyrs (2008)☠☠☠☠VOD 99 Min2008
Been putting this off for a long time. It's super depressing. It's great and going to stick in my brain for a long time but I don't want to watch it again anytime soon.

78.DeepStar Six☠☠VOD 99 Min1989
Not much monster action. Most of the crew dies without us seeing what it looks like, which is a good thing when done well, but all wee see is sub vehicles being rammed. Most of the action is the crew dealing with their underwater base falling apart. The characters are all interesting though, Miguel Ferrer stands out as a memorable screw-up/coward.
79.Fright Night Part 2 (1988)☠☠½VOD 104 Min1988
Jerry's sister comes looking for revenge. Bit of a flip of the first movie. The vampires move into Peter's apartment, Charley is the disbeliever (he went to therapy), the head vampire is a lady and she is turning Charley. It's bigger than the first and feels kind of bloated. The vampires are also much easier to kill this time. The creature effects are mostly still good though. Not a classic like Part 1.
80.Brain Dead (1990)☠☠☠VOD 85 Min1990
Stars The Bills, is this the movie that made people confuse Paxton and Pullman? It's a pretty neat mystery about what's real and what's a dream. “By the perception of illusion we experience reality.”
81.Candyman☠☠☠VOD 101 Min1992
I didn't know Candyman was a Clive Barker thing, or maybe I did and it's one of those things I constantly forget, like that other thing...That I forget. Virginia Madsen is really good. I know she has been in a lot of stuff but like Billy Zane I always thought she should have been a bigger star. And Tony Todd should do more voice acting. The score was really good. Also still laughing that Ted Raimi was cast as "the bad boy" teenager.
82.Wish UponVOD 90 Min2017
A girl gets a Chinese wish box that begins to change her life, but it acts sort of like a monkey's paw and people around her start to die.

83.The Terror of Hallow's Eve☠½VOD 80 Min2017
After getting beat up a teenage boy summons 'The Trickster' to get revenge by killing them. Super short movie, there is a flash forward scene at the end, I think only to pad the run time and the end credits are 5 of the 80 total minutes. The puppets and creature effects looked good. Eric Roberts was in this for 1 whole scene.
84.American Psycho☠☠☠½DVD80 Min2000
Quite funny and the rampage scene is great.
85.Strip Nude for Your Killer☠½Blu-Ray98 Min1975
A killer starts murdering people at a fashion agency. Great title and A LOT of nudity but the story is kind of boring, there's hardly any involvement by the police, it's just not very exciting.
86.Prince of Darkness☠☠☠½DVD98 Min1975
I know Carpenter didn't write this but it's one of his classics. Great score too.
87.Nightmares☠☠½VOD99 Min1983
An alright anthology. First is about an escaped maniac and a woman who needed to buy cigarettes. 2nd is a teenager getting obsessed over a video game that ends up becoming real. 3rd a priest loses his faith and gets attacked by a black truck on the highway. 4th is a giant rat invades a family's house. I remember renting this on VHS but the only story I could recall was the 2nd one.

88.Overlord☠☠½VOD110 Min2018
Allied forces encounter zombie soldiers during a mission to destroy a radio tower. The zombie soldiers thing is a bit over stated, there are like 3 of them. But it's a pretty fun movie and it has some good action.
89.Us☠☠½VOD116 Min2019
I liked the humor, I don't know, maybe my expectations were too high? I thought this was just alright.

This was a blast! The making of the movie was hilarious. I thought this was just going to be a zombies attack a film crew movie but it was so much better. I wonder how long until Hollywood does an unfunny remake?

Better than I thought it would be. It follows a group of friends who find a book that writes stories on it's own that become true.
93.TheyDVD89 Min2002
I think this is the first time I've seen this, but I'm not sure. The movie is so boring and bland I might have just forgotten about it. It's about tar monsters from the upside down coming after people that have night terrors. They infect them as kids then kill them as adults. Not sure why they don't just eat them when they were kids.
94.Swamp Zombies!!!☠½ DVD113 Min2005
It's low budget but unlike the previous movie I watched it's entertaining. It does run a bit long though. It's zombies in a swamp.

95.Critters Attack!VOD89 Min2019
Disappointing. The movie just feels empty, it's like the characters exist in an unpopulated world. There is a queen critter (who is good) and gets the Gizmo treatment for the majority of the movie.
96.House of Usher☠☠☠½Blu-Ray82 Min1960
Very nice looking movie.
97.There's Nothing Out There☠☠☠VOD91 Min1991
Fun movie. College kids vacationing at a cabin get attacked by an alien. It's very self aware, the horror guy was annoying but that was probably intentional.
98.Tales from the Darkside: The Movie☠☠½ VOD93 Min1990
Fairly fun anthology. First story is about a mummy and has an early role of Julianne Moore's. 2nd is about a cat killing old people. And 3rd is a gargoyle coming to life and starting a family, with the wraparound being a lady preparing to cook a captive child. The cast in this really is great.

99.Tucker and Dale vs Evil☠☠☠Blu-Ray 89 Min2010
Pretty funny (though not as on a rewatch) flip on the hillbilly horror trope.
100.Mausoleum☠½VOD96 Min1983
Almost one of those “made by alien movies” but not quite. Nomed = Demon! It's Nilbog all over again! So the demon posses the first born girl, but this family had no children, and the demon had already started killing everyone, so it was kind of dead ending itself. Seriously, the demon had no plan.
101.The Exorcist III☠☠☠☠Blu-Ray 110 Min1990
Much maligned but it's actually really good. Didn't need the old lady crawling on the roof though. The acting is all really good, (I really liked the firendship between Kinderman and Father Dyer). The actual exorcist probably wasn't needed and Legion had pretty powerful telekinesis, so why just hang out in the bug house all day? Maybe he would have hit the road after killing Kinderman?
102.The Rocky Horror Picture Show☠☠☠☠☠Blu-Ray 100 Min1975
A favorite.
103.Return to Horror High☠☠DVD95 Min1987
I hated this the first time I saw it but it's not that bad. It's only real problem is how dull it gets in stretches. It's about a film crew making a movie about a series of killings at a high school, and of course the killer returns.

It's well made, I just didn't find it remotely scary, maybe like Us, my expectations were too high.
105.Silent Hill: Revelation☠☠½VOD95 Min2012
Better than I was expecting. A young woman travels to Silent Hill after her father gets abducted. It has Sean Bean and Kit Harington (his very first role), teaming up with Pyramid Head. So how about that?

One of the best entries in the series.
108.Strays☠☠½VOD83 Min1991
Pretty fun Schlock. The movie starts with an old woman being attacked by maybe a flying cat. Then a new family moves into her house and their cars gets attacked by a flying cat, so that's confirmed. The cat also sneaks into their bedroom while they are asleep and pisses all over them and the bed without them waking up. The cat also sprays the clothes in the closet, but not the bottom of the clothes but the tops. So that's incontrovertible proof that at least 1 cat can fly. Without checking I'mm 100% certain that cat is Church from Pet Semetery. The father of the family puts that cat in the microwave at the end of the film. The microwave doesn't work so he throws the entire thing across the room, Church then bursts out like he's bee fired from a canon right into the fathers face. A+ movie and I want to pet all those cats.

Not bad not nearly as bloody as I had remembered I love the idea of it. The vampires weren't very smart though, they killed almost everyone immediately and didn't kick in doors looking for survivors.

Personal "Be a Better Feminist Movie Watcher" Checklist:
Spoiler:
This is just for me, a personal effort to seek out and support women in the film industry. As a corollary, I think it's important to support diversity in general, by considering other marginalized social/political populations, their intersectionality with gender/feminism, and how I can be a better ally. This checklist wasn't about avoiding films that don't fit these criteria (or even ones that are counter to it); it's more about remembering to seek out films that do check some of these boxes. It's also not meant to push an agenda on anyone else. It's just about visibility, and making myself think about my choices and their impact.

September 30
1. Midsommar (2019) (5/10)
Review/comments: Strong first half filled with tension and dread, let down by a pointless second half of pure boredom and a pointless ending.
2. Konchû daisensô (1968) (5/10)
Review/comments: Takes itself too seriously considering the terrible acting, dubbing and effects. Phase IV did it better.

October 1
3. The Uncanny (1977) (4/10)
Review/comments: All three segments quite dull and poorly acted. Needed more evil kitties.
4. Roar (1981) (4/10)
Review/comments: A boring and sloppy mess; the production history is much more entertaining.
5. Baxter (1989) (7/10)
Review/comments: Great 'performance' by the dog, really solid mean-spirited black comedy.
6. Fehér isten (2014) (6/10)
Review/comments: Great first half and interesting spin with the dog's journey, but lack of development of the girl makes second half fall flat.
7. Death Becomes Her (1992) (6/10)
Review/comments: Decent chick flick, pretty fun with good performances and energy, but nothing amazing and a bit sexist.

October 2
8. Devil's Due (2014) (4/10)
Review/comments: Really lame found footage/supernatural pregnancy film with awful characters.
9. Honeymoon Horror (1982) (4/10)
Review/comments: Boring, talky slasher with awful acting, dialogue and everything else.
10. I Married a Vampire (1987) (5/10)
Review/comments: Campy and decent fun low-budget film that doesn't live up to its promises of vampiric weddings or revenge.
11. The Green Slime (1968) (5/10)
Review/comments: Ok until the slime turns into the lamest sci-fi creature ever, and then it seriously drags.

October 3
12. Der Fan (1982) (6/10)
Review/comments: Good film about obsession, but doesn't quite go deep enough with the concept.
13. Whoever Slew Auntie Roo? (1971) (5/10)
Review/comments: Winters gives an amusing performance, but the kids are horrible and it's not very entertaining.
14. In Fabric (2019) (6/10)
Review/comments: Winters gives an amusing performance, but the kids are horrible and it's not very entertaining.
15. Gurotesuku (2009) (6/10)
Review/comments: Cheap and nasty torture porn, but surprisingly effective with a sense of humour.
16. Man's Best Friend (1993) (5/10)
Review/comments: Dog is cute, but the idea was wasted potential and boring.

October 4
17. The Dead Don't Die (2019) (3/10)
Review/comments: Painfully unfunny, every joke falls flat and it gets worse and worse.
18. The Dark (2018) (4/10)
Review/comments: Good opening scene and some interesting ideas of trauma and abuse, but is done poorly. Quite boring and the effects are pretty bad.

October 5
19. Eye of the Devil (1967) (5/10)
Review/comments: Not horrible, but it's hard to stay interested in the mystery, especially as the wife was really annoying.
20. Nosferatu a Venezia (1988) (4/10)
Review/comments: Some creepy and cool moments and shots, it had some good atmosphere but felt incomplete (because it was).
21. Blood from the Mummy's Tomb (1971) (6/10)
Review/comments: Bit of a different take on mummy movies, though nothing amazing it's decently entertaining.
22. Crawl (2019) (6/10)
Review/comments: Fun survival film, predictable and contrived but keeps the tension going all the way through.
23. In the Tall Grass (2019) (7/10)
Review/comments: Twists and turns a lot in directions that get less interesting each time, but is unsettling and entertaining.

October 6
24. Goosebumps (2015) (5/10)
Review/comments: Feels too rushed, with annoying and unlikable characters, but it's fun to see the monsters from my childhood on the screen.
25. Hotel Transylvania (2012) (5/10)
Review/comments: Cute animation, but thin fluffy plot and humour that's only enjoyable for kids.

October 7
26. Van Diemen's Land (2009) (5/10)
Review/comments: A bit too slow whilst also rushing the desperation, but nicely bleak.
27. Boar (2017) (6/10)
Review/comments: Gory and fun killer animal film, but lame bunch of characters makes it hard to care for anyone.
28. The Devil's Rock (2011) (7/10)
Review/comments: Great acting by all the guys (the woman and the demon character were a bit weak) and great tension, but a disappointing ending.

October 8
29. Valentine (2001) (4/10)
Review/comments: Pretty lame and boring slasher, kills are disappointing, characters shallow and one-note but never in a good way.
30. La donna del lago (1965) (4/10)
Review/comments: Nice visuals, but slow and dull mystery.
31. A Night to Dismember (1989) (4/10)
Review/comments: Terrible film, with some hilariously bad dialogue.
32. Zibahkhana (2007) (5/10)
Review/comments: Decent low-budget slasher/zombie film which is sort of entertaining but also does nothing special.
33. Salvare la faccia (1969) (4/10)
Review/comments: The main actress is good, but the film itself is mostly a bore.

October 9
34. The Objective (2008) (5/10)
Review/comments: Paper thin characters, no real tension and the supernatural stuff is too vague.
35. The Colony (2013) (5/10)
Review/comments: Interesting world, but the crazed zombie cannibals are not that interesting compared to everything else going on.
36. Salvage (2006) (5/10)
Review/comments: The middle drags a bit, though the opening scene is pretty good and it does well with its low budget.
37. The Mask (1961) (6/10)
Review/comments: Some cool, surreal imagery with a lame narrative wrapped around it.

October 10
38. Nightmares (1983) (4/10)
Review/comments: Lame bunch of stories, some had potential (the video game and rat one) but too boring.
39. Screamplay (1985) (6/10)
Review/comments: Funny and quirky, looks great for a low-budget film. Overstays its welcome a little.
40. Yeogo goedam (1998) (5/10)
Review/comments: Really amateurish, confusing story and characters and no suspense.
41. Yeogo goedam II (1999) (5/10)
Review/comments: Step up from the first one, more interesting story but told in a lame way. Fun climax but no scares.
*42. Scream (1996) (9/10)
Review/comments: Always a great time; funny, tense and gets better with every watch.

October 11
43. SiREN (2016) (5/10)
Review/comments: Fierman is creepy and the siren is interesting, but the 'satanic' guys were pretty lame.
44. Zombie Strippers! (2008) (6/10)
Review/comments: Surprisingly decent fun, never takes itself too seriously and has some gore and laughs.
45. Dark Angel (1990) (5/10)
Review/comments: Typical 80s buddy cop action/sci-fi type of thing, but not a particularly fun one; though the alien and the space drug dealers is cool.
46. Wicked Little Things (2006) (6/10)
Review/comments: Spooky and atmospheric, not shying away from the zombie kids and having a decent set of characters.
47. Uninvited (1988) (5/10)
Review/comments: Hilariously bad, with the worst cat effects ever and a few awkward 80s dancing scenes.

October 12
48. Black Roses (1988) (6/10)
Review/comments: Campy and cheesy with fun effects and a crazy plot. More interesting characters and more focus on themes could've made this a great film.
49. 2019 - Dopo la caduta di New York (1983) (4/10)
Review/comments: Dull and derivative post-apocalyptic film with bad acting, boring action and a lame plot.
50. Rosso sangue (1981) (5/10)
Review/comments: Lots of scenes that drag on for a weirdly long time, some cool kills and effects but mostly dull.
51. Chi sei? (1974) (4/10)
Review/comments: The kids had some insane dialogue which was the most enjoyably weird part of the film. Lesser Exorcist/Rosemary's Baby.
52. Willard (2003) (5/10)
Review/comments:Glover and Ermey are good, the rats have some personality. But just kinda dull and meanders along.

October 13
53. An American Werewolf in Paris (1997) (5/10)
Review/comments: Lacks all the good things of the first one, and is really just a hamfisted romance werewolf action comedy thing but really boring.
54. The Beast Must Die (1974) (5/10)
Review/comments: A bit silly because of the werewolf break gimmick, and just a standard whodunnit mystery but with a werewolf.
55. Wildling (2018) (6/10)
Review/comments: The childhood stuff was really interesting and Dourif was great, the coming of age stuff didn't really work all that well, though main actress very good.
56. The Night Walker (1964) (5/10)
Review/comments: Looks good, but fails to build atmosphere or tension and the dream subplot was totally wasted.

October 14
57. Serial Mom (1994) (6/10)
Review/comments: Great cast (aside from Lake) and decent fun, with some laughs (that screaming guy omfg), but gets a bit silly.
58. Eye of the Cat (1969) (4/10)
Review/comments: Really boring and hard to stay invested. Cats are cute and menacing but don't have much to do.
59. Dead Man's Eyes (1944) (4/10)
Review/comments: Dull, but typical, 40s horror with mostly poor acting and Chaney being given nothing to do.

October 15
60. Vampires (2010) (7/10)
Review/comments: Solid mockumentary, very similar to What We Do in the Shadows and though not quite as sharp, still funny and a good time.
61. Effects (1979) (4/10)
Review/comments: Very slow and uneventful, lots of talking but no character development, no tension and lacking in 'effects'.
62. Program na winyan akat (2008) (5/10)
Review/comments: Typical supernatural revenge slasher thing with a couple of spooky moments, but pretty generic and reliant on jump scares.
63. Intruders (2011) (6/10)
Review/comments: Spooky and intriguing, with good child actors, ruined by a stupid explanation at the end.

October 16
64. Carrie (2013) (5/10)
Review/comments: Pointless remake that offers nothing new. Moretz is terrible. Some cool prom destruction scenes though.
65. Scare Campaign (2016) (6/10)
Review/comments: Predictable, but fun and gory slasher that's way too short.
66. Most Likely to Die (2015) (4/10)
Review/comments: Decent until they start to die and then it's ridiculously dumb, lazy storytelling and just boring.
*67. From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) (10/10)
Review/comments: Still my favourite horror film of all time, amazing build-up and characters and dialogue, second half is a lot of gory, action fun.

October 17
68. Mary Reilly (1996) (5/10)
Review/comments: Horrible casting, the 'romance' is gross and nasty, though seeing the tale from another point of view was interesting.
69. Shakma (1990) (4/10)
Review/comments: So-bad-it's-good first half with some hilariously bad acting and dialogue, boring second half.
70. Downrange (2017) (x/10)
Review/comments: xx

October 18
71. The Ambulance (1990) (5/10)
Review/comments: Roberts was really creepy, slimy and unlikable, though the neon-y look of the film was neat.
72. It Lives Again (1978) (5/10)
Review/comments: Not enough killer baby action, quite boring with annoying characters.
73. Night of the Big Heat (1967) (5/10)
Review/comments: Ok cast and set of characters, but lacks atmosphere and a real claustrophobic sense of heat. The alien noise was also lame.

October 19
74. Lune de miel (1985) (5/10)
Review/comments: Shea is creepy, Baye is ok, but poor character development and no tension.
75. Diary of a Madman (1963) (5/10)
Review/comments: Decent film that just lost my interest halfway through. Acting is fine, but the 'horla' is pretty lame.
76. 2001 Maniacs (2005) (6/10)
Review/comments: Fun and gory, but the characters are really irritating and just lusty teenagers.
76.5. "Slasher": 1x01 - An Eye for an Eye (2016) (6/10)
Review/comments: Seems ok, but the intro was better than the rest of the episode.
77. 2001 "Slasher": 1x02- Digging Your Grave with Your Teeth (2016) (6/10)
Review/comments: Picked up a little bit now, not a fan of the lead or the jailed killer.

October 20
78. Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995) (5/10)
Review/comments: It's watchable but not funny at all. Nielson and Weber do a good job with what they have.
79. Le viol du vampire (1968) (4/10)
Review/comments: Typical Jean Rollins mess. First half kind of interesting, the additional half was just boring.
80. The Velvet Vampire (1971) (6/10)
Review/comments: Yarnall was great, the other two leads sucked. Could've been a really great sensual, atmospheric film with a better cast. Liked the desert and daylight setting too.

October 21
81. Troll (1986) (5/10)
Review/comments: Effects are cool, story is interesting, but too dark for a kids movie and not dark enough for a horror film so falls flat. The troll is lame too.
82. Prison (1987) (5/10)
Review/comments: Mortensen and Smith are good, the prison is cool, the deaths are cool, but it just falls flat and has little tension or atmosphere.
83. Happy Hunting (2017) (6/10)
Review/comments: Wall is a great lead, but character lacks depth. Could've had more focus on alcoholism/withdrawals, but entertaining as it is.

October 22
84. The Food of the Gods (1976) (6/10)
Review/comments: Terrible acting and characters, but entertaining and pretty creative effects with an interesting concept.
85. Alone with Her (2006) (6/10)
Review/comments: The film starts off shaky, but Hanks' character is developed well and most of what happens is believable and creepy.
86. Joshua (2007) (6/10)
Review/comments: Weirdly paced, but the kid is pretty sinister and the whole family is pretty insufferable. Sometimes his plan seems a bit farfetched.
86.5. "Preacher": 1x01 - Pilot (2016) (7/10)
Review/comments: Good pilot, never heard of the show/graphic novel but got me hooked.
87. "Preacher": 1x02 - See (2016) (7/10)
Review/comments: Entertaining, but sometimes frustrating having no prior knowledge of these people.
87.5. "Preacher": 1x03 - The Possibilities (7/10)
Review/comments: Though I think Tulip is interesting on her own, her interactions with Preacher are pretty dull.
88. "Preacher": 1x04 - Monster Swamp (7/10)
Review/comments: Good progression of Preacher dealing with his newly discovered powers.

October 23
89. Ghostland (2018) (6/10)
Review/comments: Great opening, good characters, wobbly middle, but incredibly unsettling and uncomfortable all the way through.
90. He's Out There (2018) (5/10)
Review/comments:Started off ok but once we see the threat, all tension is lost. Characters are dumb and kids just scream and stand around being useless.
91. Tone-Deaf (2019) (4/10)
Review/comments: Awful characters, terrible humour, all over the place and a waste of time.
91.5. "Preacher": 1x05- South Will Rise Again (2016) (7/10)
Review/comments: Not really feeling the Ratwater stuff, otherwise entertaining.
92. "Preacher": 1x06- Sundowner (2016) (8/10)
Review/comments: Great episode. The opening motel scene was brilliant, and good progression of characters and subplots.
92.5. "Preacher": 1x07- He Gone (2016) (7/10)
Review/comments: Enjoyed seeing more of the childhood stuff.
93. "Preacher": 1x08- El Valero (2016) (7/10)
