Re: The 16th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread***

List finalized.

Goal: 20

- All first time viewings, unless indicated by a *.
- I'm on iCM: http://www.icheckmovies.com/profile/mightysparks/
- TSZDT: https://theyshootzombies.com/

2010: 28
2011: 176
2012: 306
2013: 182
2014: 158
2015: 144
2016: 43 (dropped out)
2017: 12 (dropped out, I guess, I don't even remember)
2018: 19
2019: 129


September 30
1. I'm Thinking of Ending Things (2020) (5/10)
Review/comments: The car scenes are painfully dull. Farmhouse scenes full of tension and atmosphere, but the rest of it is mostly annoying.
2. Horse Girl (2020) (6/10)
Review/comments: Alison Brie is great. Character development is gradual and done well, as the cracks begin to show. Breakdown comes on a little too suddenly and starts to lose its way. Enjoyable, regardless.

October 1
3. Mom (1991) (6/10)
Review/comments: Some goofy charm makes it enjoyable, but a lack of gore and too much melodrama in the middle make it less memorable.
4. Harpoon (2019) (7/10)
Review/comments: Characters are awful and yet delightful to watch as their toxic friendship falls apart, great sense of humour and fantastic ending.

October 2
5. Blue Monkey (1987) (6/10)
Review/comments: Somewhat stylish, the creature is cool and Steve Railsback is likable. But most characters are annoying (unfunny comedic reliefs and useless screaming woman), and there is just not enough creature or gore.
6. Noita palaa elämään (1952) (5/10)
Review/comments: Mirja Mane brings an innocence to her seductive witch character and is a highlight, but none of the characters really make any sense and it doesn't feel like much happens.

October 3
7. Schatten - Eine nächtliche Halluzination (1923) (6/10)
Review/comments: Some interesting shadow imagery and ideas of shadows and truth, but doesn't quite explore this enough and doesn't have a lot of atmosphere.
8. Happy Death Day 2U (2019) (4/10)
Review/comments: Nice that it tried something new, but terribly unfunny and relies too heavily on the audience investing in unlikable, flat and boring characters. Emotional parts are sugary and painful.

October 4
9. Stridulum (1979) (6/10)
Review/comments: Some great cinematography, but terrible editing and acting. The music works sometimes and is completely random and out of place at others.
10. The Psychopath (1966) (5/10)
Review/comments: Dull, lacks tension and a sense of mystery. It's obvious who the killer is and the whole film seems to be centered around wanting the crazy German doll lady in a film.

October 5
11. The Wretched (2019) (4/10)
Review/comments: Contains every awful generic stereotype and cliche you can think of and is not fun at all. Horrible teen characters and over reliance on jump scares and stupid twists.
12. The Return of Doctor X (1939) (5/10)
Review/comments: Pretty dated with the awkward editing, wooden acting and exposition about blood. But Humphrey Bogart is goddamn hilarious, laughed the whole time he was stroking that rabbit.

October 6
13. Bluebeard (1944) (5/10)
Review/comments:
14. Luther the Geek (1989) (5/10)
Review/comments:

October 7
15. A Study in Terror (1965) (5/10)
Review/comments:
*16. 28 Days Later... (2002) (9/10)
Review/comments:
*17. Resident Evil (2002) (8/10)
Review/comments:

October 8
18. Ju-on (2000) (4/10)
Review/comments:
19. Poltergeist III (1988) (4/10)
Review/comments:

October 9
20. Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990) (6/10)
Review/comments:
21. Ye ban ge sheng (1937) (4/10)
Review/comments:

October 10
22. La orgía de los muertos (1973) (5/10)
Review/comments:
23. Linnaisten vihreä kamari (1945) (5/10)
Review/comments:

October 13
24-27. The Haunting of Bly Manor (2020) (7/10)
Review/comments:

October 14
28. Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1953) (5/10)
Review/comments:

October 18
29. Otis (2008) (8/10)
Review/comments:

October 19
30. Koko-di koko-da (2019) (8/10)
Review/comments:
31. 12 Hour Shift (2020) (6/10)
Review/comments:

October 29
32. Possessor (2020) (6/10)
Review/comments:

October 31
33. Vicious Fun (2020) (4/10)
Review/comments: Painfully unfunny, but does get better as it goes on. Mostly thanks to Ari Millen's charismatic and energetic presence.
*34. Pitch Black (2000) (10/10)
Review/comments: Goddamn I love this movie

Total = 34

Re: The 16th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread***

Mallratcal's 11th October Horror Movie Challenge!
Oct 1st
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
1.Mikey☠☠½ VOD92 Min1992
A fairly decent killer kid movie, Pretty different from how I remembered it when I saw it on VHS a million years ago. They way it was shot made it look like a made for TV movie.
2.The New Kids☠☠VOD89 Min1985
Filmed in 1985 but I guess the town this was filmed in didn't keep up with the latest fashions, everyone dressed like the 70s. Really good cast.
3.The Hunt☠☠½VOD90 Min2020
Pretty funny at moments but once they started explaining things in the 3rd act in kind of lost steam. I didn't recognize Ethan Suplee at first.
4.Backcountry☠☠½VOD92 Min2014
A couple get attacked by a bear after they become lost in the wilderness. Takes awhile to get going and there is not many bear scenes but the gore they used was effective.
5.Häxan☠☠☠☠DVD105 Min1922
Finally watched my old DVD. The content itself is very dry but there are some nice effects and costumes, also horned up devils and the movie ends with: SLUT.
Oct 2nd
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
6.Body Parts☠☠VOD88 Min1991
I may have seen this before but don't really remember. Feels like there were scenes removed as there's not much character development, stuff just happens.
7.The Prophecy II☠☠ VOD87 Min1998
Gabriel is back to kill the unborn messiah. I like that the series has kept the coroner stuff going and Gabriel not knowing how to use technology. Not a very exciting movie though.
8.The Grudge (2020)☠☠VOD94 Min2020
First Grudge movie I've seen. I like that it's a direct continuation of the original movies though. I'm a little confused by the rules, the realtor just poked his head in at first and got grudged, and he was allowed to go kill his wife. Did this create a grudge situation in their house? Also why didn't the ghost kill Goodman's first partner? I have questions, movie!
9.I See You☠☠☠VOD97 Min2019
Pretty good mystery surrounding the disappearance of a kid and then strange things begin to happen in the home of the detective working the case. Hope I never get Phrogged.
10.The Ghoul☠☠☠½VOD77 Min1933
A bunch of thieves and greedy folk try to get their hands on a valuable jewel that also bestows immortality in the Egyptian afterlife. It's got a lot of funny moments, some of the acting is pretty stagey (looking at you Ralph) but that was the style at the time. Light on ghoul action though.
Oct 3rd
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
11.Becky☠☠VOD88 Min2020
Escaped prisoners terrorize a family while looking for a key. It's really paint by the numbers, nothing new or interesting to the formula.
12.The Belko Experiment☠☠½VOD89 Min2016
Office workers have to kill one another in order to survive. This was fine. Some funny moments.
13.Bloody New Year½VOD90 Min1987
Thought this was going to be a slasher but instead it's a ghost story, caused by an experimental aircraft causing a time warp...thing. Britain in 1987 looked very '70s.
14.Of Unknown Origin☠☠☠VOD88 Min1983
A man goes to war with a giant rat. Things don't get real bad for him until he accidentally kills the rats babies. It's pretty entertaining to see Peter Weller destroy his home with a baseball bat in the final act.
15.Laid to Rest½VOD90 Min2009
Slasher film where characters make all of the nonsensical moves. Richard Lynch is in it for a minute., So is Lena Headey. It actually has a nice cast.
Oct 4th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
16.Berserker½VOD85 Min1987
The spirit of a Norse Berserker posses a relative who then attacks a group of campers. Movie has some serious pacing problems when the campers wander and hobble through the woods after the first attacks, but you do get to see a guy wrestle a bear.
17.Hellgate☠☠½VOD90 Min1989
The father of a murdered girl gets a magic crystal that can bring the dead back to life. Not many deaths and this would have sucked if not for the 4 main characters, they were fun together. Still wondering why the father had metal bits glued to his face. The girl gets murdered by the wimpiest biker gang ever, one of the gang survives the opening of the movie only to attempt a heroic rescue during the climax where he gets owned in 2 seconds. The escape from Hellgate was also pretty good.
18.Humongous☠☠VOD97 Min1982
Group of friends get stranded on an island with a deformed crazy person. Forgot I had watched this a few years ago.
19.Red State☠☠½VOD88 Min2011
Religious extremists vs the ATF. I thought the movie was going to be about the torture of the 3 teens the church abducts but it becomes a crime/action movie halfway in. Has a nice apocalypse swerve though.
20.Slime City☠☠VOD82 Min1988
A guy rents a new apartment where he eats some green food from Nilbog and then has fully clothed sex with a neighbor only to end up as a muck-man. The only way to cure the muckies is to kill someone. Turns out everyone in the building is a cult member who had previously killed themselves so that they could posses new bodies, and they did that just for the hell of it. The final battle was fun. Set in NYC and there is a detective named Irish O'Bannon.
Oct 5th
#TitleRatingNewFormatRun TimeYear
21.Edge of the Axe☠☠½VOD91 Min1988
A maniac starts hacking people up with an axe in a small town. There's some weird computer stuff but it was the 80s and they didn't know any better. You could see where the twist was going but they executed it well.
22.The Silence of the Lambs☠☠☠☠☠VOD118 Min1991
It's a great movie.
23.Horror Express☠☠☠½VOD88 Min1972
An apeman runs amok on a train. Turns out it's an alien that absorbs peoples memories through it's eyes, turning it's victims into smoothbrains. Telly Savalas hams it up for a bit and is fun. This was pretty good. It's a hollow victory though, the Russians have orders to kill everyone on the train, which I imagine happened right after the credits.

A demon possessed laundry machine starts killing people and all the powerful people in town are a part of it. There's also a possessed fridge (it made contact with the laundry machine). The machine becomes a crappy CG monster at the end. Vanessa Pike plays one of the oldest looking16 year olds I've ever seen.
30.Fear No Evil½VOD99 Min1981
An elderly couple give birth to Lucifer and there are 3 angels who are looking for him. We meet up with Lucifer in High school, there is a gang that goes to his school but they don't hassle Lucifer and are pretty nice to him, the leader even makes out with him in the locker room showers. This gives Satan a case of the not-gays, and he does a sex dream with the girl he likes (she's the 3rd angel) and kills her boyfriend. The 3rd angel is a charisma vacuum who stares dumbly in every scene. Satan has his big coming out party where he makes some zombies who kill the school gang. (it's very sloppily and hastily done) Satan gives the gang leader a pair of sweet boobs and then makes out with him again, causing the leader to stab himself. Before the angels kill Lucifer they have a chance to save one of the girls of the gang but just stand and watch Lucifer sacrifice her for some reason. It's pretty boring except for some of these bizare moments.
31.Psycho II☠☠☠½Blu-Ray113 Min1983
I suspected Mary was messing with Norman's brain and she was. She was working with her mom to get Norman sent back to the booby hatch, but then the killing begin. Turns out Norma was actually Norman's aunt and not his mother, (or at least that's what the old lady at the end claims) but Norman makes her his new mom in the end. I like how they kept things ambiguous to Norman's mental state, until he caves an old woman's head in with a shovel, that is.
32.Black Christmas (2019)☠☠VOD92 Min2019
I appreciate that it wasn't a direct remake, instead it's about a frat house killing sorority girls who they felt has wronged them and they are imbued with the magical power (just makes them zombies really) they gained from the bust of the founder of their college. The PG-13 hurts it, it's not particularly good or funny but it's not bad, just sort of 'meh'. If you are triggered by "wokeness" you're gonna have a bad time. Cary Elwes shows up as the cult's leader.

Direct continuation from part 2. A reporter is investigating the disappearance of the old lady claiming to be Norman's mom. That old lady turned out to be a liar and was just Norm's aunt after all, so she deserved to get her head crushed by a shovel. At the motel Norman has a new front desk employee who used to be nun, and she just so happens to look like Marion Crane, and this sets things rolling again.
34.Possessor☠☠☠VOD103 Min2020
The Possessor takes control of a target to carryout assassinations, to do this they have to abduct the target and place a receiver in their brain, and at that point it seems like the whole operation would be to large to keep secret. This was good, not very violent but the violence it had was very bloody.
35.Pet Sematary II½VOD100 Min1991

36.From Hell It Came½VOD70 Min1957
A tribe in the Pacific kill an innocent member of their tribe and he comes back in the form of a tree to get his revenge. Probably because as soon as they killed him they started partying down. There are of course Americans on the island, trying to teach them about medicine to cure the plague that has infected the tribes people. Groot kills people in the laziest of fashions, just picking them up and dropping them from waist high. I blame the monster suit, it looked like it was hard to walk in it and the arms could barley move. In the end Groot grabs Lady Scientist (who has one of the ugliest screams ever recorded, it's like a screech owl being set on fire while it gargles glass) and tries to gently drop her to her death, only to be killed by good old American guns, and that's what gets the tribe to finally accept the white-man's ways. The movie would have been better if it spent more time with the tribe and less with the Americans who just stood around talking science for 70% of the movie.

I do appreciate that they showed the killer early on and didn't have a twist reveal. Other then that it was pretty bad, bad acting and not a lot happens.

Boring and there were a few scenes where extras were just staring into the camera in the background. Maybe they weren't extras but just confused locals?
38.Dr. Terror's House of Horrors☠☠½VOD98 Min1965
Five men on a train get their fortunes told through a tarot deck. Story 1 is about a werewolf. 2 is a plant that has become intelligent and attacks a family. 3 is a Jazz musician stealing a voodoo song. 4 is an art critic being menaced by a severed hand, and 5 is vampires. None of them are particularly exciting. The voodoo story has a great bit where the musician is spying on a ceremony and copying down the music while unbeknownst to him more and more voodoo people are gathering behind him.

First story is a wooden Indian statue coming to life to avenge the murders of 2 shop owners. 2nd is The Raft, where a tar monster eats 4 teens on a lake. And the 3rd is about a woman who runs over a hitchhiker and then gets attacked by it's ghost. I had completely forgotten that 3rd story. The wraparound is a nicely animated tale of a boy and his meat eating plants. I won this Blu-ray in last years challenge and as a homage to the 3rd story: "Thanks for the movie, Goldenwheels!"
40.CryptzVOD78 Min2002
Vampires' in a strip club. Considering this was an "In the hood" movie they should have made the vampires a gang like, I don't know........ the Crypts? Or you could even do something with the Bloods. This is why I should have been a producer on this movie. The three main characters never shut the fuck up and they got annoying after awhile. The vampires notice (and cutoff) a tattoo on the protagonist, that will give them powers over the dead, but if all they needed was someone with that tattoo they could have just made their familiar get that tattoo rather than waiting to find someone with it by chance. But I'm putting too much thought into this. These vampires could also be killed by having their necks broken/heads slammed against walls. Weak.

46.Monster Dog½VOD84 Min1973
2nd movie this week where a group of people head to a big old house to shoot a music video. This time they are attacked by dogs. Alice Cooper plays the lead, and a posse of townsfolk try to kill him because they think he is a werewolf. They call the beast a werewolf but it looks like a deformed dog, they didn't show it much because the effects were not great. Movie begins and ends with a music video, probably to pad the runtime. Not great but it moved quickly.

I like that the found footage style gets dropped once the zombies hit.

A weird kid finds a pit full of monsters and he begins feeding people to them. The kid is weird but people are pretty mean to him.

The bit where people were just obliviously falling into the giant hole was pretty funny.
58.City of the Living Dead☠☠½VOD93 Min1980
A priest hangs himself and opens the gates of hell in Dunwich, the original Salem. The scene where they have a roomful of worms shot at them must have been unpleasant.

The ending should have been a little more clear, I know more footage was shot for the ending, oh well.

Really wooden acting and the main character got to be pretty grating, always sniping at people. A team of paranormal investigators and private security try to rid a house of a ghost, a witch ghost, dun dun dun. They try to do this with a ghost vacuum device. Now the witch ghost needs a physical medium to restore his body, he takes control of one multiple times to kill people and then he lets her go, but all he has to do to restore his body is have the medium eat his cremated ashes, which she does, (no water or anything, better than the cinnamon challenge) but not until the end and after they have found his heart. If he had acted earlier he would have won easy, so I'm going to say that witch ghost was a bit of an idiot.

The Black Racer kills teens at an abandoned ski resort. The ending is a mess, the red herring gets KOed but a second later the protagonist is being chased downhill by someone on a snowmobile who gets their head chopped off. But at the killer reveal (super obvious btw) the red herring is shown with their head on and no sign of a decapitation. So did the killers trap chop their own head off, only to heal himself up like wolverine? Or did the director get confused while watching the editing and forget that the red herring was supposed to be decapitated? It's doesn't matter, the killer gets sucked into a snowplow.

The son of Satan appears at the end and the protagonist reads a magic spell and becomes an alien and the two fight, with alien-boy striking first with a kick to he balls. The demons get defeated by a spell, and if someone had kept reading the journal all of their friends would still be alive. Movie was a mess.

How can your kids hug you with nuclear arms? A radiation leak at a nuclear plant changes kids into zombie like creatures that just want to hug everybody, and can only be killed by chopping off their hands.

Odd scene: The father of a zombie holds the now dead sheriff's head in his lap overnight, not his dead son or daughter but the sheriff.

A bunch of teens raid a company that has kidnapped their friend and find zombies for their trouble. Very low budget so the requisite bad acting/dialogue are present. This supposed giant corporation apparently employs nobody and the security around the zombies is nonexistent, an alarm goes off and they are told they have 10 minutes before police are notified, and when an incorrect security key is used it results in a system failure and all of the zombies are set free. Zombies don't need a headshot to be killed, a shot to the body works for most but some zombies can talk and have motivations other than eating brains, they also have fist fights, weird.

116.The Babysitter☠☠☠½VOD85 Min2017
Really funny.
117.The House of the Dead☠☠VOD80 Min1978
Dull and very predictable anthology. A plumber laying some pipe (if you know what I mean) ends up at a funeral home where he learns about the people in the caskets. First story is a teacher that hates kids, so he gets bitten to death by them and their hillbilly fangs. 2nd is a killer who records his crimes (super boring). 3rd is 2 detectives having a pissing contest and one is going to kill the other. 4th is a office worker gets trapped in a box and then fed nothing but booze (worst story). And the plumber is the final coffin, as if you didn't already know that.
118.Lord of Illusions☠☠½VOD121 Min1995
Watched the director's cut. I like Harry, and following the mystery around an illusionists death but the end feels rushed and to use a word from the movie "hokey", and there are characters that just disappear and I wonder why they were there in the first place.
119.Hack-O-Lantern☠½VOD87 Min1988
🎵 "You're the Devil's son!" 🎵

120.Shaun of the Dead☠☠☠½VOD99 Min1986
Still funny and Edgar Wright is a fantastic director.
121.The Wretched☠☠VOD98 Min2019
Had higher hopes for this as I heard it was like Fright Night, but it has pacing problems and is just not exciting.
122.The Rift☠½VOD83 Min1990
The crew of an experimental sub go looking for the wreckage of another sub only to find a secret biolab and the sea monsters it has created. Also there is toxic mutant algee that starts to take over the ship, and a traitor on the crew, gotta have one of those. Another one that was just not interesting, I thought it was a TV movie at one point.
123.Halloween II (2009)Blu-Ray119 Min2009
It's still bad. I've only ever seen the director's cut but some of the scenes go on forever or are unnecessary and it feels like a slog. Everyone is always yelling and swearing so it lessens the impact of both, it's my main gripe about Zombie
124.Death Warmed UpVOD82 Min1984
Movie starts with a doctor taking a young man from behind in the shower and giving him an injection in the butt. ok. It ends with that young man later repeatedly penetrating that doctor, with a knife and crying. Take from that what you will. The doctor is doing brain implant experiments down at the local booby hatch, and these patients get loose and kill everyone on the island, when a hospital employee goes nuts, but in his defence the doctor did try to have him killed. No real ending, a power line falls on the main guy and kills him and it just ends.

125.It Chapter Two☠☠½VOD150 Min2019
It's about the same as the first movie, though I wasn't so hot on that one either. I liked Bill Hader and James Ransone, and the running joke about not being able to write endings.
126.Random Acts of Violence☠½VOD80 Min2019
The trailer looked good, it was decieving. This was boring narativly and visually, lots of tight shots and shakey-cam. It's about a comicbook writer getting attacked by the serial killer he wrote about in his comic.
127.28 Weeks Later☠☠VOD100 Min1986
Another one I've been meaning to watch for a very long time. It was nice to see a more realistic military encounter with zombies. Dad zombie making it until the end kind of killed it. Hawkeye is in this and he plays a sniper (of course), and Imogen Poots in her 3rd acting credit and first lead.
128.The Rocky Horror Picture Show☠☠☠☠☠Blu-Ray100 Min1975
A classic and I watch it every year.

Starts slow but the characters are great and Linnea Quigley is in her prime, and I've always liked the theme music.
130.From Hell☠☠½Blu-Ray122 Min2001
The idea of Masons covering up a secret royal baby is a good story.

Really solid doc. that covered a lot of stuff that I didn't think it would. Very good.

The Unofficial Early Start Period (9/15-9/30):
Spoiler:
9/15/20

**) Screaming in High Heels (Screaming in High Heels: The Rise & Fall of the Scream Queen Era) (2011) - Documentary about Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens, and Michelle Bauer.
**) Shock Cinema Volume One (Shock Cinema Vol. 1) (1991) [Film Star] - Brinke Stevens hosts this documentary featuring several film makers talking about making low budget horror movies. Way too many commercials on this channel.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Dracula and His Disciples" - Christopher Lee and others discuss Dracula on stage and on film.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Blood-Drinking Beings" - Christopher Lee and others discuss vampires not named Dracula, bats, and vampire-like aliens, etc. on film.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Frankenstein's Friends" - Christopher Lee and others talk about Frankenstein movies.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Baron Frankenstein" - Christopher Lee and others talk about Frankenstein movies again.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" - Christopher Lee and others converse about Jekyll and Hyde movies.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Werewolves" - Christopher Lee and others chew over various werewolf movies.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Bela Lugosi" - Christopher Lee and others reminisce about Bela Lugosi's life and career.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Boris Karloff" - Christopher Lee and others reminisce about the life and movie career of Boris Karloff.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Ghosts" - Christopher Lee and others pass on some spirited tales of movies about ghosts.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Phantoms" - Christopher Lee and others exchange views on various versions of The Phantom of the Opera and The Invisible Man.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Witches" - Christopher Lee, witches in movies... Man, this is getting repetative. With 100 years of movies to choose from, why are they repeating clips?
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Demons" - Christopher Lee and others talk about demons and ancient gods (and Freddy Krueger?) in movies.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Mutants" - In this sort of Potpouri category episode, Christopher Lee and others discuss a multitude of (mostly) bipedal creatures, aliens, and monsters in movies.
**) Home Sweet Home (1981) [B-Movie TV] - It's Thanksgiving day, and the "Body-by-Jake" guy escapes from a mental asylum and kills a bunch of people. I've seen this one before, but I wanted a break.
**) Le Chatteau Hante (The Haunted Castle) (1897) [YouTube] - Méliès short film where people and things appear and disappear in a cardboard castle corridor.
**) Le Manoir du Diable (The House of the Devil) (1896) [YouTube] - Another Méliès short film where more people and things appear and disappear in a cardboard castle corridor.
**) Open House (1987) [B-Movie TV] - A serial killer is killing female real estate agents. Another one I'd seen before, but it had been a few years, so I figured I might as well watch it again.

9/16/20

**) 100 Years of Horror: "Freaks" - Christopher Lee and the usual suspects discuss actors with deformities and movies about people with deformities.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Scream Queens" - Christopher Lee and a few others talk about women who have screamed in movies.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Girl Ghouls" - The subject this time is female main villains in films.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Maniacs" - Maniacal killers in movies.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Gory Gimmicks" - Discussion of movie exploitation. Color, 3D, subliminal messages, urban legends, insurance policies and other gimmicks.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Sorcerers" - Sorcerers, satanists, mesmerists, etc.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Aliens" - Alien menaces.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Mummies" - Mummy movies
**) I Am Nancy: Never Sleep Again II (2011) - Heather Langenkamp speaks with Robert Englund, Wes Craven, Jessica Craven, and a number of fans about A Nightmare On Elm Street and her character Nancy. A Fun, interesting, funny, and touching love letter to both Wes Craven and the fans of the series.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Zombies" - Zombies in movies. It was almost funny hearing some guy politely say that Night of the Living Dead was an "adaptation" of Richard Matheson's book I am Legend, instead of just calling it a rip-off of the movie Last Man on Earth.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Mad Doctors" - Crazy scientists doing crazy shit in movies. The clip from the amateur film Hugh Hefner made as a kid was probably the highlight of this one.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Man-Made Monsters" - Golems, robots, computers, medical experiments gone wrong.
**) Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy (2010) - An entertaining and interesting deep dive into the entire series with interviews with many of the people involved.

9/17/20

**) 100 Years of Horror: "Giants" - Big people, big monsters, big insects.
**) 100 Years of Horror: "Dinosaurs" - Dinosaurs, Godzilla, etc.
**) Biography: "Bela Lugosi: Hollywood's Dark Prince" - Peter Graves, Forrest J. Ackerman, Bela Lugosi Jr., Ray Walston, and a few others talk about Bela Lugosi.
**) Biography: "Boris Karloff: The Gentle Monster" - Peter Graves, Forrest J. Ackerman, Sara Karloff, and others talk about Boris Karloff.

9/18/20

**) His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th (2009) - Tom Savini and a shit-load of other people (a few who were actually involved with the movies) talk about the movie franchise.
**) The Men Behind the Mask (2009) - More from eleven guys who have played Jason. Kane Hodder is the only one of these guys I could've named, or picked out of a lineup.
**) Final Cuts (2009) - More from nine directors who made the movies.
**) From Script to Screen (2009) - More from 5 screenwriters who wrote the movies.
**) Dragged from the Lake (2009) - A bunch of deleted & extended interviews from the movie.
**) Fan Films: Freddy vs. Jason in 30 Seconds and Re-Enacted With Bunnies - Bad cartoon, but, hey, it was short.
The Angry Video Game Nerd: Friday the 13th Episode - Idjit yells at a vidja game.
Jason Hurts - Not very amusing fake drug commercial.
Rupert Takes Manhattan - Jason's less succesful brother Rupert doesn't do much.
**) Closing the Book on The Final Chapter - The director of The Final Chapter, and "Rob", tour the house used in the movie.

9/19/20

**) Fox Comes Home - Biker chick from part 3 visits the barn used in the movie, in 2D!
**) Friday the 13th in 4 Minutes - The director of Wrong Turn 2, the director of Hatchet, and some fat guy tell the plots of the movies in just over four minutes.
**) Jason Takes Comic-Con - Cast members of the 2009 movie are interviewed at SDCC.
**) The Camp Crystal Lake Survival Guide - Faux educational film with most of the people from the movies giving advice on what to do, or not to do, at Crystal Lake.
**) Inside Halloween Horror Nights - Complete tour of the Universal Studios attraction which was shown in the movie.
**) Shelly Lives! - Guy who played Shelly in Part 3 does a fake lawyer commercial, in 2D!
**) Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th (2013) - A deeper dive into the series, directed by the same guy who did His Name Was Jason, reusing lots of the interviews from that film (and from the extras on the DVD), along with several new ones, to make an epic-length look at the entire series, including the TV series of the same name. This one kind of makes His Name Was Jason an unnecessary watch, but there's a pretty good after-credits gag that plays off a joke in His Name Was Jason that, while still understandable, works much better if you've seen the earlier film.
**) The Texas Chain Saw Massacre: A Family Portrait (1988) - Interviews with the cast members who played the family in Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
**) Evil Dead 1&2: The Musical (2003) - Fairly amusing musical adaptation of Evil Dead & Evil Dead II. I'm not usually a fan of musicals, but I mostly enjoyed this.
**) Fanalysis (2002) - Short film by Bruce Campbell about fans.
**) Discovering Evil Dead (2002) - Interviews with the guys who distributed Evil Dead on VHS in the UK.
**) Blood, Boobs & Beast (2007) - Interviews with various people talking about B movie maker Don Dohler, along with behind the scenes footage while making a movie and some footage with him and his family at home.

9/20/20

**) The Meateater (1979) [American Horrors] - A middle-aged guy quits his job and buys an abandoned, rat-infested movie theater. He and his family clean it up a little and begin showing "wholesome movies." On opening night the projectionist gets electrocuted, then police find the hanged desicated corpse of the previous owner inside a locked room. Later, after a bunch of scenes of people eating or talking about eating, the crazy old guy who lives in the theater abducts the theater owner's teenage daughter, thinking she's Jean Harlow (yep, it's some kind of Phantom of the Opera thing). Man, did this one suck.
**) Terror in the Aisles (1984) - Donald Pleasence and Nancy Allen talk about horror movies as we watch a bunch of movie clips.
**) Flesh Wounds: Seven Stories of the Saw (2006) - Various people talk about filming The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and what they've done since, along with a visit to the house used in the movie (at it's new location).
**) Texas Chain Saw Massacre: The Shocking Truth (2000) - Most of the cast and several film crew members talk about filming and releasing The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Then there's some discussion of parts 2, 3 & 4, Gunnar Hansen walks through the restaurant that the old house had become at the time, and it all ends with "where they are now" credits for everyone interviewed (and a few who weren't).
**) Room 237(2012) - Interviews covering several competing wacky theories about alleged symbolism in The Shining (ranging from Native Americans to the Holocaust to sex to "the moon landing was fake," and maybe some I've forgotten). Trying to say every continuity error, or item which appears onscreen (even the helicopter shadow!) is really a "clue" to some secret meaning that only you understand seems more than a little narcissistic to me. Call me crazy, but maybe the cans of Calumet and Tang were in the food pantry just because they are food items. And if they are so important, what about the other items seen in the same shot? Then the guy talking about the moon landing being fake, after misstating the distance from the earth to the moon, says "there's only two words that you can come up with" from the capital letters on the key to "ROOM No 237" - "and that's MOON and ROOM." He missed MORON, which for some reason jumped right out at me while listening to him babble on. I was glad to see online that the director didn't necessarily agree with the theories presented (I thought I saw a few clever edits which made it look like he was just humoring them), and that some viewers also saw it as critical of the them (I was beginning to think I was becoming like the theorists in the movie and was reading too much into a movie), so I'll stick with my interpretation since I enjoyed the movie that way.

9/21/20

**) From Romero to Rome: The Rise and Fall of the Italian Zombie Movie (2012) - Interviewees discuss Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and Zombi 2, and how they led to a zombie explosion in Italian cinema. They talk about Fulci a lot, then move onto quick discussions about a bunch of Italian zombie movies (and cannibal movies), then finish back in America talking about a few more recent zombie films.
**) Halloween: 25 Years of Terror (2006) - Several people (some involved with the movies) talk about the Halloween movies.
**) The Evil Dead (1981) - w/ commentary by Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert
**) The Evil Dead (1981) - w/ commentary by Bruce Campbell

9/22/20

**) The Evil Dead II (1987) - w/ commentary by Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, Scott Spiegel, and Greg Nicotero
**) "Manos" The Hands of Fate (1966) - w/ commentary by Tom Neyman and Jackie Raye Neyman-Jones
**) Hands: The Fate of "Manos" (2015) - A few people who worked on "Manos" The Hands of Fate talk about making the movie.
**) Megan Is Missing (2011) [B-Zone] - Found footage flick that wastes a lot of time following a group of unlikeable teenagers doing uninteresting things. Then, finally, after a bunch of that useless crap, one girl meets an anonymous guy on the internet, and later gets abducted. Then her friend gets abducted by the same guy, and they show us a half hour or so of torture porn, and the anonymous guy digging a hole, and it finally ends. Unfortunately, I've seen worse.

9/23/20

**) The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) - w/ commentary by Tobe Hooper, Gunnar Hansen, and Daniel Pearl. I think I had listened to this one before on the old DVD.
**) The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) - w/ commentary by Marilyn Burns, Allen Danziger, Paul Partain, and Robert Burns (with a special appearance by Edwyn Neal by phone), moderated by David Gregory
**) The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) - w/ commentary by Tobe Hooper, moderated by David Gregory
**) The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) - w/ commentary by Daniel Pearl, J.Larry Carroll, and Ted Nicolaou, moderated by David Gregory. Watching and listening to several "making of" documentaries and commentaries made over the span of a few decades, you can't help but hear stories change, or contradict.

9/24/20

**) Twisted Issues (1988) [Other Worlds TV] - Shot on video "splatter comedy" about a skateboarding teen who gets hit by a teenage gang's car, then has his body dumped in a parking lot where it is found by a teenage doctor and his teenage nurse. They take the body somewhere and bring him back to life. So he kills the doctor, then screws his old skateboard to his foot, dons a fencing mask, and goes after the gang that killed him, all while accompanied by a bunch of random clips from TV and lots of crappy music. If you can stick with it until the end, it gets even weirder.

9/25/20

**) Svengoolie: "The Old Dark House (1963)" - I figured I'd take this time to clear some Svengoolie episodes off the DVR. Tom Poston is an American who delivers a new car to his British friend at the friend's old dark family estate. Horror comedy co-produced by William Castle and Hammer Films. I'm not certain, but I think I had seen this movie before. The Svengoolie stuff was new to me at least.
**) Svengoolie: "Berserk (1967)" - Joan Crawford and Michael Gough are the owners of a circus that loses its star high-wire performer in a tragic accident during the opening credits. Then a new high wire act suddenly shows up, gets hired, and hooks up with the much older Crawford. Following another death, a Scotland Yard detective shows up to investigate. Then we get to see a few cicus acts, plus some Pepsi-Cola product placement. This was another one where I had seen the movie before (but didn't remember much about it), but the Svengoolie stuff was new to me.
**) Plaga zombie: Zona mutante (2001) [B-Movie TV] - Subtitled Spanish Zombies. Well, I've seen it before, but it's Friday night and I don't feel like getting off the couch, so sure, why not?

9/26/20

**) Svengoolie: "Village of the Damned (1960)" - Every inhabitant of a small English village suddenly falls asleep for some unknown reason, and anyone unfortunate enough to enter the village undergoes the same fate. Several hours later, everyone in the village wakes up, and before long all the women capable of bearing children (whether sexually active or not) discover they are pregnant with rapidly developing babies. Soon the women give birth to children with strange eyes, hairs and nails who grow rapidly and can read minds. It had been about a decade since I last watched this movie, so I figured I might as well watch it.
**) The Sleepover (2012) [Other Worlds TV] - Really short film about two kids and a babysitter and a masked serial killer. The one that played before this one (most of which I missed) looked better.
**) Little Corey Gorey (1993) [B-Movie TV] - Crappy film about a kid and his evil step-brother and evil step-mother who abuse him just for fun. After the brother dies in an accident, he ties up the mother, puts the brother's body in the freezer, and some other crap happens. Eventually it ended.

9/27/20

**) Vampire Over London (1952) [Other Worlds TV] - Bela Lugosi battles an old Brit drag queen. I've seen this before, but I caught it as it started, and figured I might as well give it another watch since it isn't very long.
**) The Jar (1984) [American Horrors] - Crappy film about a guy who happens upon a car accident and takes the driver of the wrecked car to his home. The accident victim soon disappears, but leaves behind something wrapped in a paper bag - a bottle containing a plastic demon, which possesses the guy, causing him to see a bunch of random, uninteresting things. I had seen part of this one before. For whatever reason, several years ago, just after getting a Roku, I kept tuning in to this movie playing (on different channels, I think), but I always missed the beginning. So when I saw the title, I figured I ought to watch it, if only so I could finally check it off on icheckmovies and never subject myself to it again.
**) Blood Link (1982) [American Horrors] - Michael Moriarty has nightmares followed by visions of women being killed. After some research, he discovers that he was separated from his conjoined twin when he was a kid, and they were adopted by different families after their parents died. Following clues in his visions, he travels to Europe and tracks down his murderous twin. According to icheckmovies, I watched this just over a year ago. Can't say I remembered anything about it really.
**) Monday the 16th (2019) [American Horrors] - In this mildly amusing short film, Jason Vorhees returns to his boring office job (and his wacky co-workers) the Monday following his latest "camping trip."

9/28/20

**) Svengoolie: "The Deadly Mantis (1957)" - Giant prehistoric bug is released from Arctic ice and heads south. Took some digging, but I found another Svengoolie show with a movie I haven't alrady seen dozens of times. It's been a while since I last watched this one.
**) Svengoolie: "Night of the Lepus (1972)" - Classic goofy pic with Stuart Whitman, Janet Leigh, Rory Calhoun, and DeForest Kelley battling giant bunnies. Another one I haven't seen recently, so figured why not?
**) Alien Species (1996) [B-Movie TV] - IMDb lists it as "Sci-Fi" only, so it doesn't count, but since I'm not counting it, so what? Two detectives are transporting two criminals by van when aliens attack earth. After the van crashes, these four join up with three others and hide out in a cave, which just happens to be some sort of secret base used by the aliens for sinister reasons. I had seen this one at least once before. Charles Napier (who I've often confused with Bo Svenson) playing a small town sheriff, in what is barely more than a cameo, is the only thing of note in this time waster.
**) The Flesh and Blood Show (1972) [American Horrors] - Pete Walker proto-slasher about a bunch of actors getting killed. It's the feel good hit of the season. Another re-watch.

9/29/20

**) Monster Squad: "The Wizard" [Other Worlds TV] - Gopher's crime computer somehow animates three monsters (the Werewolf, Frankenstein's monster, and Dracula, played by Buck Kartalian and a coupla other guys I didn't recognize) exhibited at the wax museum where he works, and they all fight crime. Like Adam West's Batman, but with monsters as superheroes (makes sense since this show was developed by Stanley Ralph Ross, who worked on Batman). The team battles a bad guy called the Wizard who shrinks a few famous landmarks. It wasn't very good, but it was something I'd heard of but never seen and was a little curious about, and I found out the 13 episodes have been released on DVD. Long story short, I now have all the episodes and a day and a half to waste...
**) Monster Squad: "Queen Bee" - Unfortunately the first episode isn't an origin story. Instead we get Alice Ghostley as the Queen Bee who plans to use South American Killer Bees to take over the world. Dracula follows one of her drones to her hideout and is captured. After a while, the rest of the squad shows up and saves the day.
**) Monster Squad: "Mr. Mephisto" - An evil doll maker builds exact duplicates of city officials which he has programmed to be bad. While investigating the bad guy's doll factory, Dracula and Frank are captured after being mesmerized by the bad guy's two hot hench-dolls' hypnotic eyes. Gopher and the Wolf Man eventually set them free.
**) Monster Squad: "The Tickler" - Gopher is almost arrested for passing a counterfeit one dollar bill, and his crime computer deduces that the Tickler (a sad clown who can't laugh who Gopher sent to prison sometime in the past) is responsible. The Squad goes to investigate, but it turns out the Tickler was setting a trap for them so he can ultimately get Gopher. It's up to Gopher to save the day and defeat his arch enemy.
**) Monster Squad: "The Ringmaster" - Billy Curtis kidnaps some orphans (he says there are twenty thousand, but we only see six). The Squad members dress as clowns and sneak in to free the kids. Man, just when I thought these were going to be watchable, they go back to crap.
**) Monster Squad: "Music Man" - After Marty Allen and his two henchmen rob the Natural Causes Telethon, the Monster Squad goes into action. Dracula and Frank sign up for music lessons, get captured. Gopher saves the day, again.
**) Monster Squad: "No Face" - The mayor sells the city to Chief Running Nose (Sid Haig!) for $24. As the new owner of the city, Chief Running Nose orders the mayor to cut the police force in half, and disarm those who remain. Later the mayor goes on TV and legalizes all crime. Eventually the real Chief Running Nose shows up at the wax museum (what luck) and tells Gopher that No Face is disguising himself as others and carrying out the evil deeds. Bruce the werewolf gets captured by No Face. Can Drac and Frank make it in time to save him?
**) Monster Squad: "The Astrologer" - Jonathan Harris is an astrologer whose predictions are always wrong, so he decides to make his most recent prediction of an upcoming earthquake that will send California into the Pacific Ocean happen by detonating an atomic bomb on the San Andreas Fault (hey, it's Lex Luthor's big plan two years before Superman: The Movie). Even the supporting actors in this one were recognizable faces. That's two pretty good episodes in a row.
**) Monster Squad: "Ultra Witch" - Julie Newmar causes a world-wide milk shortage in hopes of getting her boyfriend the Wizard (who doesn't appear until the next episode) released from prison. Cookie dealer Dandy Andy drops off some free cookies at the wax museum (because cookies aren't selling without milk) and mentions that only one customer is still buying cookies, so the squad stakes out the cookie shop, then Dracula follows the customer to the witch's lair, where he gets captured, of course.
**) Monster Squad: "The Skull" - Prolific character actor Geoffrey Lewis resurrects a mummy and causes a city-wide blackout. He sends the mummy out to steal a diamond. The crime computer locates the drain on the city's electricity, and Frank goes to investigate and gets captured (surprise!). The Skull stupidly tries to electrocute Frank, but instead charges him up. For once, the monster didn't need saving.
**) Monster Squad: "The Weatherman " - Avery Schreiber causes a blizzard to cover the U.S. with 40 inches of snow. He says he will stop it if the American people vote him in as president, and if they don't he'll make it worse. Then he hits Alaska with a monsoon, just to prove his weather control machine still works, I guess. Bruce the werewolf gets frozen, the Weatherman wins the election, the Hulk (I mean Frank) bursts through a steel reinforced wall, Frank and Drac defeat the Weatherman and save Bruce. Yay!
**) Monster Squad: "Lawrence of Moravia" - Frank and Bruce investigate a robbery at a plumbing supply warehouse. They spot the bad guys outside the warehouse and follow them to Lawrence of Moravia's hideout. Lawrence recognizes Frank and Bruce as monsters, and tries to recruit them to help him steal a giant pearl, but they refuse, so he knocks them out and chains them up. Leaving the monsters in a deathtrap to drown in oil, Lawrence and his henchman go to steal the pearl.
**) Monster Squad: "Albert/Alberta" - Pairs of animals go missing from a few zoos, and Gopher suspects hermaphrodite Vito Scotti. Turns out he's right. His/her plan is to melt ice bergs and flood the world if the governments of the world don't pay him. He's been collecting a pair of every type of animal, and just needs a male werewolf and a male vampire bat to complete his collection. Luckily Bruce and Dracula come along and get captured.



Official List (9/30-10/31):
Spoiler:
9/30/20 (Dusk to midnight)

1) The Las Vegas Serial Killer (The Hollywood Strangler in Las Vegas) (1986) [YouTube] - Pierre Agostino plays another serial killer in another Ray Dennis Steckler movie. I guess it's a sequel to The Hollywood Strangler Meets the Skid Row Slasher (1979). Appears to have been shot MOS on 16mm. Killer gets released from prison early for reasons, walks around Vegas for a few minutes, and ends up in a strip club. Two other guys walk around not doing much. Then we see the killer watching people at a pool party, and he grabs a girl and strangles her with her own bikini top. Cut to the two guys watching a parade. Then they go to an airshow. The movie keeps cutting back and forth between the two guys and the killer. The killer occasionally strangles a woman. The two guys occasionally steal stuff. Mildly interesting as a time capsule of mid-'80s Las Vegas and environs, but there's not much else to see here.
2) O Estranho Mundo de Zé do Caixão (The Strange World of Coffin Joe) (1968) - Anthology film with Coffin Joe introducing three stories by José Mojica Marins. "O Fabricante de Bonecas" ("The Dollmaker")- An old dollmaker, well known for the realistic, "expressive" eyes of his dolls is rumored to have a hoard of cash because he doesn't trust banks. One night, four punks decide to break into his home and steal the money, but when they see the dollmaker's four attractive daughters, they decide to take something else instead. A decision they soon regret. "Tara" ("Obsession") - A film with no dialogue about a baloon seller (well, he's carrying around a bunch of balloons for some reason) who stalks a woman who's dating another guy, who she eventually marries. The newlywed bride is murdered on the church steps, and after her funeral, the balloon guy breaks into her tomb and not much happens. Yeah, this one wasn't very good. "Ideologia" ("Ideology") - The longest of the three stories. José Mojica Marins plays a professor who is being interviewed on TV. After the interview he invites the reporter and his wife to visit him at his home where he will prove his theories. Cut to his house, which looks like a low-budget TV horror host's set. The TV reporter and his wife show up, and Professor Coffin Joe escorts them to his basement, where a few half-dressed people are writhing around. When the couple tries to leave, a Lurch-like mute servant blocks their way, and Professor Joe forces them to sit and watch a show. Unfortunately I had to watch it too. At least the first story in this movie was watchable, so it wasn't a total waste of my time.
3) Nigel the Psychopath (1994) [YouTube] - Some kids decided to put on a show and made this shot-on-video "movie" with bad acting and bad special effects about a guy wearing a gas mask who kills some kids, while some other kids hunt him down. I saw this listed on the B-Zone's schedule earlier today and figured I might as well watch it, but I found a copy on YouTube and realized that I had enough time to watch it before B-Zone is scheduled to play it.

10/01/20

4) Mahakaal (The Monster) (1994) - Two hour plus Indian Nightmare on Elm Street rip-off. There's actually a somewhat decent horror movie here if you can struggle through all the singing and dancing, fighting, and not-at-all-funny comic relief that makes up most of the movie.
5) Harvesters (2001) [YouTube] - Written, edited, and produced by Don Dohler. A gang of small-time crooks is fleeing a botched liquor store robbery when their car breaks down somewhere in Maryland, so they take refuge in a nearby house. Basically a remake of Don Dohler's earlier film Blood Massacre (1991) (with Dohler regular George Stover returning, this time playing one of the family instead of one of the crooks). I could've done without the bad CGI, but the movie surprisingly wasn't half bad. The copy on YouTube is followed by a trailer and an entertaining making of short that was worth sticking around to watch.
6) Creature with the Atom Brain (1955) - German mad scientist resurrects dead people. His gangster benefactor uses the resulting super strong atomic zombies to kill his enemies. Police investigate.
7) CarousHELL (2016) [tubi] - A single mom forces her vapid, social media obsessed teen daughter to babysit her obnoxious little brother while she's at work. So to kill time before dragging the kid to a party with her idiot friends, she takes the kid to the amusement park where her boyfriend works. The kid rides the carousel, and after having to put up with snotty, disgusting kids for a year, Duke the unicorn finally gets so fed up with his job that he breaks free from the carousel and goes on a killing spree. Yes, that's actually the plot to this movie.
8) The Incubus (1981) - Someone or something is killing men and raping and mutilating women.

10/2/20

9) Slashers (2001) - Japan's number one game show, "$LA$HER$" (where six contestants have to complete a course and avoid getting murdered by costumed killers to win millions), welcomes six American contestants (well, Canadians pretending to be Americans). This started out okay, but that didn't last long.
10) Revolt of the Zombies (1936) [YouTube] - During World War I a guy makes a squad of unstoppable zombie soldiers. After he is killed and his zombie instructions are stolen, a group goes off to Cambodia in search of a replacement. I had seen this a couple years back, but I didn't really remember much about it, and after seeing a clip from the film a couple of weeks ago I wanted to give it another watch.
11) Ceberrut (2016) [B-Movie TV] - After their most recent YouTube video was laughed at, four Turkish college students, hoping to make a viral video, decide to spend a night in a haunted house. The setup wasn't bad, too bad the payoff wasn't as good.

10/3/20

12) The Coven (2002) [B-Movie TV] - An ultra-low-budget rip-off of The Craft with boobs and blood. New girl starts attending college. Everyone tells her to stay away from three girls on campus, because they are witches. Turns out she's a witch too and the girls want her to join them so they can form a coven.
13) Hollywood Kills (2006) - Hollywood producer abducts people, then tortures and kills them while filming it.
14) Office Killer (1997) - Carol Kane is a low-level employee at a magazine publisher. She's working late one night with a loud-mouth writer when he accidentally electrocutes himself, so rather than call 911, she drags the body home, where she lives with her cats and her ailing, elderly mother. Since she's "completely insane," and she found it so easy to hide the first body, she figures she can get away with murder now, so she starts killing off coworkers (and others) and hiding them in the basement with the first guy.
15) Bread Crumbs (BreadCrumbs) (2011) - Nine people go to a big house in the woods to shoot a porn video. They run into a dim-witted yokel and his sister who live in the woods and like to play deadly "games."
16) The Shadows (2011) - Five people shipwrecked on an island take refuge in a lighthouse during a storm. They meet a frightened woman who warns them that "the Shadows" are coming.
17) City in Panic (13) (1986) [B-Movie TV] - A serial killer is killing people, mostly gay men, in Toronto. I was a little surprised to see this was already checked on icheckmovies. Looking back, it turns out I watched it just 10 days short of ten years ago, during the 2010 challenge.
18) Camp Blood 4 (2016) [B-Movie TV] - Idiots get killed by killer wearing a clown mask. It's a Camp Blood movie. If you've seen one, you know what you're in for, and you know it ain't good.

10/4/20

19) Final Remains (Mortuary) (2005) - In a small town where women have been disappearing for several years, two young couples decide to break into the local funeral home. No surprise, there's a killer in there. This was crap, but at least it was short.
20) Followed Home (2010) - Two couples head to Big Bear to spend a weekend in a cabin. A girl in a nearby cabin who was attacked and stabbed stumbles over to their cabin, and they take her to get help, but she dies. They go back home, and the killer follows them. Or it's all just a metaphor for how the characters deal with what they went through. Either way, it's not very good, but at least it was short.
21) My Sweet Killer (1999) - A recovering addict (or maybe he was a mental patient, or both), recently released from a halfway house, sees a woman who may be a ghost, first in his dreams, then when he's awake, argues with his boss, argues with the two drug dealers who apparently live on his front porch, and gets in fights. Man this shit was slow going. It wasn't much more than an hour long, but it took me several hours to watch it all because I kept shutting it off to go do something (anything) else.
22) Lurking Fear (1994) - A Lovecraft title with Jeffrey Combs that I haven't seen before? Sign me up. A guy just released from prison goes to the small town of Leffert's Corners (which has been besieged by underground dwelling monsters for twenty years) looking to retrieve his inheritance, a treasure hidden inside a corpse buried in the town's cemetery. He and three crooks who are also seeking the treasure end up locked within the church next to the cemetery, along with the town's five remaining citizens who were preparing for their last stand against the monsters. It wasn't great, but it was a Full Moon pic with Jeffrey Combs, so at least it was watchable, which is a huge step up from the other films I watched today.
23) Butchered (2010) - Cliché filled slasher flick about an axe wielding maniac who escapes from police custody during a prison transfer and hides out on a small island where a group of young people just happen to be having a weekend party before college starts. Nothing great, but I kinda liked it. What can I say? I have a soft spot for movies made in NC.

10/5/20

24) Ashes (2010) - A saintly, compassionate, conscientious, bilingual emergency room doctor spends his free time working on an AIDS cure with Dwayne Wayne. A kid dying from a jellyfish sting comes into the E.R., and, with no other way to save the kid, the doctor injects an untested serum into him. The kid bites the doctor on his arm. The bite on the doctor's arm gets infected and he starts having nightmares and hallucinations. Eventually, after an hour plus build-up, the doctor and a few people he came into contact with, become flesh-eating rage zombies.
25) Grey Skies (2010) - Some old college friends have a reunion gathering at a house in the woods. A whole lotta not much happens for a while. Then people start disappearing, only to turn up later, naked and nauseous, and different.
26) Devil's Partner (1961) - In a ratty cabin in a small town, a dying old guy signs a pact with the devil. Then a younger guy shows up in the small town and says he's looking for his uncle (the guy who died), and moves into the shack. Before long he's casting spells and people start dying. I had seen part of this one before, but this was my first time watching it all the way through.
27) The Devil's Messenger (1962) - Lon Chaney Jr., playing Satan, sends a woman to earth to tie together three stories from his old TV show 13 Demon Street into a movie. First: a photographer is the only one who sees a woman (who gets closer every time he looks) in a photograph he took of a house. Second: Miners discover a woman frozen in ice. Scientists take the ice encased body to a freezer, and one of the scientists becomes romantically obsessed with the frozen corpse. Third: A guy tells his shrink about a recurring nightmare where he dies in a building he used to play near as a child. The shrink tells him to go to the building to prove to himself that there is nothing sinister about it so the nightmares will end. He goes to the building and meets a fortune teller who predicts his imminent death. This wasn't checked on icheckmovies, but I watched it during an earlier challenge.
28) Night Train to Terror (1985) - Infamous anthology film with God and Satan telling stories on a train carrying a group of '80s rockers. In the first story, "The Case of Harry Billings," patients in an asylum are tortured, killed, and dismembered. In the second story, "The Case of Gretta Connors," when a college student dates a porn star pianist, her sugar daddy who isn't happy about it begins an unnecessarily complex plot to kill the student. In the last story, "The Case of Claire Hansen," an old guy sees a young guy on TV who reminds him of a Nazi war criminal, so he asks Cameron Mitchell for assistance in bringing him to justice. Another one I had seen before, but it was on the same Dollar Tree DVD as the previous movie and it was already in the Blu-ray player, so I watched it again because, as the singer in the movie correctly observed, I had nothing to do.
29) Farm (2010) - A zombie movie where it takes almost 45 minutes before we actually see any freakin' zombies. Instead we get to see two guys eat, walk around their farm, and mumble to themselves and to each other while royalty free piano music drones on in the background. At least it was short (but not short enough).
30) The Rising Dead (2007) - After a badly rendered airplane crash (just a taste of the bad CGI to come), the survivors (a group of politically connected men and women who were on there way to an underground bunker where they were to wait out the zombie apocalypse) do a lot of walking and talking. At least we saw some zombies within the first ten minutes of this zombie movie.

10/6/20

31) The Breed (2001) - Sometime in the future, or maybe on an alternate earth, vampires exist. They are mutants with their own hidden society who mostly want to live in peace with the rest of humanity. After his partner is killed by a vampire, a police detective is partnered with a vampire detective and assigned to bring down the rogue vampires trying to sabotage peace.
32) Vampires: The Turning (2005) - While a kickboxer and his girlfriend are vacationing in Thailand, she gets kidnaped by kickboxing vampire motorcyclists, so he joins up with some local vampire slayers to rescue her.
33) Zombies (2017) - Tony Todd and some other survivors fight zombies in a small town. Has a ridiculous ending most will recognize as a slight variation on the ending of a well-known big-budget movie (I won't name that movie to avoid any more spoilers). The simple title is actually rather appropriate for this one. It is a generic zombie movie: Basic, cheap, not the best quality, but it serves its purpose. You could do better. You could do worse.
34) The Church (2018) - Bill Moseley is the pastor of a Philadelphia church who doesn't want to sell the building to land developers, in spite of his wife and others encouraging him to sell. The congregation votes to sell the building, and just as the pastor is about to sign the necessary papers, it appears like the church itself starts attacking people and locking them in, so they can't escape, to stop the sale. Finally, after nothing much happens for about an hour, Clint Howard shows up as a ghost or something, and not much happens for a few more minutes. All of which leads to a crappy ending. Well that was eighty minutes and a buck wasted.
35) Hunting the Legend (2014) - Found footage cryptid flick. Somewhere in Alabama, a kid records himself and his dad deerhunting. Dad is killed by something which leaves behind a large footprint. Five years later the kid returns to the forest to find whatever did it, and films the search. They interview a few "locals" who tell their Bigfoot stories (this was the best part of the movie), then meet up with a hermit who lives in a pretty nice cabin in the woods, then they walk around in the woods, argue a lot, then argue some more, and occasionally find stuff hanging from trees. They might as well have called it "The Big Foot Project." Only thing of note: This marks my second sighting of a copy of Max Brook's The Zombie Survival Guide in a movie in the past 24 hours.
36) Scream at the Devil (2015) - Soon after a couple move into a new home, the woman starts seeing bad CGI all over the house. The couple argues. A lot. After some more arguing, the husband disappears. Then a couple of weird neighbors show up, then disappear. After a while a few more weird neighbors show up, act odd, then leave. Eventually Tony Todd shows up as a detective. This movie was weird, just not weird enough to be interesting, or entertaining.
37) The Snarling (2018) - Horror comedy about a film crew making a zombie movie which has had a few murders occur nearby during full moons as it moved around the countryside. Police begin to suspect the film's star is a werewolf. If you like British humour, you'll probably get a couple of laughs from this one.

10/7/20

38) The Banana Splits Movie (2019) - Horror comedy about a kid who goes to a taping of The Banana Splits Show for his birthday with his slacker older brother, his over-protective mom, and his douche bag stepdad. The show gets canceled, and the robot characters start killing or maiming people. Not goofy enough to be fun. Not funny. Not much of anything.
39) Saturday Morning Mystery (Saturday Morning Massacre) (2012) - A paranormal investigation company, consisting of two guys, two girls, and a large dog, who travel around in a van, and always find a natural explanation for "hauntings," is running low on cash, so when a bank offers to pay good money if they can prove an allegedly haunted mansion isn't haunted, they jump at the chance. While spending the night in the house, they begin to think maybe something supernatural is going on. Then they find a dead body, and chase someone or something through the house, then the movie went somewhere I certainly wasn't expecting. Best thing I've watched this month so far.
40) Death House (2017) - Based on a story by Gunnar Hansen, two agents are assigned to a top secret high security prison where five immortal serial killers are sedated and hooked up to a virtual reality system. While they are touring the prison, a riot breaks out, and they and a doctor (Dee Wallace) try to escape. Most of the prisoners and staff are horror movie veterans (the cast list reads like the guest list at a mega-convention - Even former DC head Dan DiDio is in it). The movie's no good, but playing "Spot the Horror Movie Star" was sort of entertaining, at least.

10/8/20

41) Demon Hunter (Taryn Barker: Demon Hunter) (2016) - Somewhere in Ireland a goth chick gets in a sword fight with a guy and chops off his head. She gets arrested, and it turns out the detective assigned to her case met her six tears earlier, when her younger sister was abducted and killed. In flashbacks we see that after her sister was murdered, she was contacted by a guy who offered to help her find the person responsible. Turns out he was a demon who wanted her for reasons, and while performing some type of ceremony where she gets some demon powers, some other people show up and take her away. Then they train her to fight demons. This could've been good with a better script and a director who knew how to shoot fight scenes.
42) Si yiu (Corpse Mania) (1981) - This Shaw Bros. police procedural starts with a couple moving into a house. Before too long, neighbors notice a foul odor coming from the house. Police investigate and find a female corpse which had been sexually violated. The detective in charge discovers another necrophilia case from a few years before where the perpetrator was sent to an asylum, but has since been released, so that guy becomes the prime suspect. Soon someone wearing a hat, a white scarf, and sunglasses starts killling people with a big knife, and what follows is a pretty good Hong Kong cinema take on a Giallo flick.
43) Chawu (Chawz, Chaw) (2009) - Korean Jaws parody, homage, rip-off, whatever. A young policeman gets re-assigned from Seoul to a small farming village, just as villagers are getting slaughtered by a really big boar. This one was pretty good too, and the CGI wasn't too bad.
44) Scrawl (2015) - A teenage loner living in a seaside village writes a comic book (which his one friend draws) using townfolk as characters. When events depicted in the comic begin to actually occur, people start dying, but the movie doesn't get any better. Watching this one is like being in a seaside town on the off season - cold, bleak and tedious.
45) The Deathhead Virgin (1974) [B-Movie TV] - A salvage diver in the Philippines finds a sunken ship containing a few valuables along with a skeleton with long hair. He takes a talisman from around the skeleton's neck, and later starts to kill and scalp women. Meanwhile a naked chick wearing a native mask emerges from the ocean and doesn't do much of anything. Pretty typical sluggish '70s drive-in offering. You could easily visit the snack bar, or whatever, without missing much of anything of consequence. Vic Diaz was in it, so it had that going for it at least.
46) O Ritual dos Sádicos (Awakening of the Beast) (1970) - Two guys sit around telling each other dirty stories while José Mojica Marins listens. Then one of the guys, a psychiatrist or something, tells how he did a study on how people under the influence of LSD reacted to Coffin Joe. The opening credits are written on pages from Coffin Joe comics (which Google tells me were actually a thing), and you can see a few comic book covers and more pages within the film. This actually wasn't too bad, until Coffin Joe showed up at the end. Not a fan.

10/9/20

47) Sigma Die! (2007) - Five college girls rent a house for the summer, most of them get killed by a masked killer. No surprises here. Brinke Stevens was in it for a few minutes.
48) Doctor X (1932) - Police and a newspaper reporter are looking to capture a cannibal serial killer dubbed The Moon Killer by the newspapers. Lionel Atwill plays a medical examiner, and Fay Wray is his daughter.
49) Ghost of Camp Blood (2018) [B-Movie TV] - Idiots get killed by killer wearing a clown mask. It's a Camp Blood movie. If you've seen one, you know what you're in for, and you know it ain't good.
50) Heavy Metal Massacre (1989) [B-Zone] - Shot on video crapfest where people with big '80s hair don't really do much while generic '80s rock music blasts on the soundtrack. Lots of music and several bad '80s video effects later, a goofy fucker with big bleached hair kills a few people, then there's more music and bad '80s video effects and finally it just ends. "Sorry guys. Ran outta tape. I guess that's a wrap."

10/10/20

51) Secret of the Telegian (Densô ningen) (1960) [Archive.org] - Police and a newspaper reporter investigate after a man walking through a spook house at an amusement park is stabbed with a bayonet and dies. The man's WWII dog tag is found near his body, and during the investigation, the police learn that three men who served with the victim during the war have received their tags, and are presumably marked for murder by the same mysterious assailant who uses a "matter transmitter" to teleport himself to, and away from, the murder scenes.
52) He's Out There (2018) - A woman and her two daughters go to a house in the woods. The two girls go for a walk in the woods, and one of them eats a cupcake she finds out there, and later gets sick. Then there's a lot of yelling, whining, and crying, plus a couple of deaths. "Borrows" a bit from The Babadook, using a children's book as a plot element. Nothing special, but it wasn't terrible.
53) Rusalka: Ozero myortvykh (Mermaid: The Lake of the Dead) (2018) - A Russian guy is at his bachelor party at a cabin by a lake, and when the strippers show up he leaves to go for a swim. After he gets out of the lake, he sees a woman. We later find out she's a lake dwelling ghost or something that can manipulate water who tried to kill the guy's father, and did kill his mother 20 years earlier. Later, back at home, he and his fiancee, see the woman in their dreams, and she tries to kill the guy. So they head back to the lake to try to put a stop to her. Another so-so time waster.
54) Attack of the Mushroom People (Matango) (1963) [B-Movie TV] - Seven people go sailing, a storm hits, they land on a small island covered with mushrooms, go exploring and find a wrecked ship loaded with scientific equipment. Eventually hunger drives the castaways to eat the mushrooms which has the unwanted side effect of slowly turning them into mushrooms. Sure, I had seen it before, but I figured I might as well watch it again.
55) Camp Blood 666 (2016) [B-Movie TV] - Idiots get killed by killer wearing a clown mask. It's a Camp Blood movie. If you've seen one, you know what you're in for, and you know it ain't good.

10/11/20

56) Double Exposure (1982) [tubi] - A batshit crazy photographer has dreams about killing models, and worries that he might be the serial killer the police are after.
57) Ghost Stories (2017) - A TV show host who debunks supernatural events, UFOs, mediums, etc. is recruited by his hero (a man who did the same thing until he mysteriously disappeared sometime before) to investigate three cases he was unable to disprove. No surprises here, but I mostly enjoyed the way it played out. I can see myself watching it again, so it was worth the buck I paid for it.
58) Lake Fear 3 (2018) - Somewhere in Texas, a woman is posting flyers about her missing sister (maybe she was a character in one of the first two Lake Fears, I don't know, I haven't seen the first two parts) when she runs into a smarmy, effeminate ghost hunter in a theater lobby. She asks him to help her find her sister, and after her friend offers him cash, he agrees to help. Then they run into some other guy (who I assume is a returning character from the previous films) and the woman turns into a monster and bites people. The story drags along for a while and they finally end up at a cabin and fight monsters again. It's The Evil Dead as made by untalented, brain damaged second graders. Total shit. Another wasted buck.
59) Unseen Evil (2001) [B-Movie TV] - An evil Professor (Richard Hatch) and a few other people go into the woods looking for ancient Indian artifacts. They take some trinkets out of a cave, and are attacked by a mostly invisible bad CGI monster. Can Tim Thomerson and Cousin Oliver save them? Not too terrible, but not very good either.
60) American Nightmares (2018) - Two young guys are playing on their computers, watching camgirls, when a guy who calls himself Mr. Malevolent (Danny Trejo) takes over their computers and introduces seven crappy shorts: "Mates" - Two women complain about men. One gets a free invite to an online dating site, signs up, and meets a guy. They hit it off and go back to her place, but it turns out he isn't what he seemed to be at first. "The Prosecutor" - Jay Mohr is a prosecutor who is running for governor. He gets a call that one of the people he sent to death row has escaped from prison. "White Flight" - A racist white hillbilly cop (himself an over-the-top racist stereotype) and his family teleport to a town of racists somewhere or when, but don't get what they bargained for. It's a Twilight Zone episode as made by untalented, brain damaged second graders. "The Samaritan" - Chris Kattan hires a hooker to dress as a clown. He goes to the bathroom, and while waiting for him, she finds a dead hooker dressed as a clown hidden in a closet. "Hate Radio" - A misogynistic talk radio host turns into a woman (shades of Watermelon Man). "The Healer" - A misanthropic faith healer televangelist is on his way to meet a woman in a hotel when he gets kidnaped by Linc from The Mod Squad, who curses him with the power to cure nearby people by taking on their afflictions. (I'm sensing a theme.) "Thy Will be Done" - A young woman is abducted outside an abortion clinic. Three guesses why, and the first two don't count. Writers used to be able to make political points while still entertaining an audience. Too bad that skill seems lost now. Yet another buck wasted.

61) TBK: Toolbox Murders 2 (Toolbox Murders 2, Coffin Baby) (2013) - A young woman arrives at her sister's apartment to find police removing her sister's body. Then she is abducted and forced to watch a masked man torture and kill people (when he isn't torturing her), and, as the bodies pile up, she slowly loses her mind, or maybe she really is seeing those ghosts of past victims. If you really like practical gore effects, this one is for you.
62) Annabelle (2014) - A doctor gives his pregnant wife a hideous doll to add to her collection. Some stuff happens, and the doll gets possessed, kind of like Chucky, but not as cool, and starts harassing the couple.
63) Darkness Reigns (2018) - Found footage flick presented as a "making of" documentary of a horror movie that is being filmed at a reportedly haunted hotel. It's all tiresomely "meta," but it had its moments. At least it was reasonably short, and it didn't take too long before the CGI effects started up and people started dying.
64) Twixt (2011) - Val Kilmer is a "bargain basement Stephen King" who stops in a small town during a book tour. Moderately entertaining stylish oddity. Partway through, Francis Ford Coppola appeared to be channelling Robert Rodriguez for whatever reason, giving it a decidedly Sin City look.
65) Digging Up the Marrow (2014) - Starts like a horror movie documentary interviewing several people, then turns to director Adam Green. Green mentions a guy who sent him a notebook full of stuff claiming that monsters actually exist. Then they go to the guy's house to interview him, and the rest of the movie follows Adam Green, his cameraman, and the guy, as they try to capture monsters on camera (when they aren't shamelessly plugging Green's TV show I had never heard of). Entertaining, sometimes amusing time-waster, with plenty of cameos (by stars and directors), and a fun performance from Ray Wise as the off-kilter monster hunter.
66) The Gallows (2015) - Oh goody. More "found footage." A high school drama class is putting on a play twenty years after a guy was accidentally hanged during a performance of the same play. A loudmouthed douchebag who records everything (of course) and runs his mouth a lot (of course) decides to sabotage the play, so he and a couple of others break into the school at night to tear up the sets (and of course the obnoxious brainless prick records himself doing it). They get locked inside the school, yell a lot, and wander around dark hallways while the audience hopes for their quick, violent deaths.

10/13/20

67) Vampira (Old Dracula, Old Drac) (1974) - Four Playboy Playmates, a writer, and a photographer head to Castle Dracula, which Dracula (David Niven) has turned into a tourist trap he's using to find a matching blood type for a transfusion which he hopes will revive his frozen love, Vampira. When the transfusion has an unexpected side effect, Dracula and Vampira fly to New York to find the Playmates, hoping to reverse the side effect.
68) Dead Clowns (2004) - A hurricane strikes a small town in Florida, and releases some zombie clowns from their watery mass grave (where they had been since a bridge collapsed fifty years earlier). I kinda liked the look of the clown zombies. They mostly had a pretty good decayed, skeletal, Italian zombie look, but their costumes were still intact. What the hell were those clown costumes supposed to be made of? At least it had Brinke Stevens in a few scenes, so it wasn't a total waste.
69) Dead Mine (2012) - A group of treasure hunters are trapped inside an old mine in Indonesia that was used by the Japanese for Unit 731 experiments during World War II. There only hope to get out is to go deeper into the mine, looking for another exit.
70) Insidious (2010) - A family moves into a new home. After the oldest son goes to sleep and doesn't wake up, the mother starts seeing things and thinks the house is haunted. When things keep getting worse, and the boy hasn't woken up, they get a group of paranormal investigators to help. "Borrows" heavily from Poltergeist. I've seen this one before, but I figured I'd watch it again before watching parts 2 & 3 since it had been awhile since I saw it.
71) Insidious Chapter 2 (2013) - Good thing I watched the first one again. Because this one is a direct sequel, picking up more or less where the first movie left off. The family is living in the grandmother's house while the police are investigating the death of a character that happened near the end of the first film, and weird things begin happening again. This one has a little Poltergeist, but they also threw in some Back to the Future Part II, Sleepaway Camp, and The Shining for good measure.

10/14/20

72) Insidious Chapter 3 (2015) - A prequel set "a few years" before the first movie. The female psychic from the first two films is "retired," but she gets back in the game after a teenage girl is attacked by an evil entity. This one felt too different from the first two films at first, but it got a little better after a few more of the known characters showed up. I would have rather seen the story they set up at the end of the second movie.
73) Death Note (2017) [Netflix] - Dorky teen picks up a book that literally falls out of the sky and lands beside him. Inside are written instructions saying that if he knows a person's name and face, he can write that name in the book, and the person will die. He starts to use it to kill criminals worldwide, which leads international authorities to investigate. I didn't hate it, but I haven't seen the anime or read the manga it was based on.
74) The Babysitter: Killer Queen (2020) [Netflix] - It's two years after the events in The Babysitter, and the kid is now in high school. He goes off with some other students for a weekend getaway, and runs into new members of the blood cult, along with the resurrected members of the original group, who still want his blood. Lots of over-the-top bloody, almost cartoonish kills in this one, along with a few laughs. You could do worse.
75) The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014) - In Texarkana, someone dressed like the killer in the movie The Town That Dreaded Sundown is killing people, loosely following the murders in the movie. Police and the young female survivor of the new killer's first attack investigate the murders (old and new). It was okay. Worth the dollar I paid for it. If you like monologuing villains, this one is definitely for you.
76) We Are Still Here (2015) - A middle aged couple move into an old house in the country and begin experiencing odd events. At first they think it might be the spirit of their recently deceased son, but soon it becomes clear that something evil exists inside the house, and it is "hungry," and the local townfolk want it to be fed. Pretty good movie. Another dollar well-spent.

10/15/20

77) Blair Witch (2016) - The younger brother of the girl from The Blair Witch Project thinks he sees her in a newfound video uploaded onto the internet, so he and some friends go to talk to the guy who uploaded it. They follow the guy and his girlfriend into the woods to see where he found the tape, and to look for the house. They walk in the woods, argue, and get lost. It's a bigger budget Blair Witch Project with new characters (4 skeptics and 2 believers), using newer recording technology. It was irritating, not entertaining. That one cost me less than a dollar (at a thrift store), and I still feel ripped off.
78) Malicious (2018) - A mathematics professor and his pregnant wife move into a large house. While in the house alone, the wife sees a baby in the nursery, and she collapses and has a miscarriage. After she gets home from the hospital, she starts seeing a little girl (who gets older each time she sees her) and hearing noises in the house. After her husband, and her visiting sister, start seeing things too, the husband asks a blind parapsychology professor from work to come by and check out the house. Rather bland, but not boring. Worth a buck, I guess.
79) Aura (The Exorcism of Karen Walker) (2018) - A couple move into a house the man inherited from his uncle. They find the uncle's old Kirlian Photography camera (for photographing peoples' "auras") and some old pictures in the basement. One of the pictures is of his younger sister, who is currently in an asylum, and after consulting a psychic, he learns his sister may be possessed. A mediocre story performed by a few British actors not-very-convincingly pretending to be Americans (when the setting isn't even relevant to the story).
80) Splinter (2008) - After their vehicle breaks down, and they are attacked by a parasitic monster, three people hide out in a gas station. This one was surprisingly good.

10/16/20

81) Shiver (2012) - A pudgy, middle-aged schlub is killing women in Portland, and collecting their heads in jars. He attacks Danielle Harris, and she fights back and gets away (hey, she's had lots of practice). He goes after her in a lackadaisical cat and mouse game. Not very good, but not the worst thing I've seen this month.
82) Platoon Warrior (The Stick) (1988) [B-Movie TV] - Soldiers in South Africa shoot a witch doctor, then burn down his village. The witch doctor gets his revenge from beyond the grave. Very slowly (like everything else in this film).
83) School Tales (2017) [B-Movie TV] - Somewhere in Thailand, kids at band practice at night in a large school building tell three ghost stories about the old building. Then they split up and go searching for the ghosts from the stories.

10/17/20

84) Satanic (2016) - Four young people are in L.A. visiting old "Satanic Panic" crime scenes. After visiting a magic shop, and getting chased out by the clerk, they follow him to a house in the middle of nowhere and see him presiding over some sort of ceremony. It wasn't good, but it wasn't unwatchable either. It just was.
85) Demon Hole (2017) - A group of young ne'er-do-wells doing community service in the woods get lost and end up in a dilapidated old house. After smoking one guy's "medical" marijuana, some of them gain super powers, thanks to the demon released by an oil company drilling nearby. Another so-so, almost, but not quite, entertaining movie that exists.
86) Beneath the Mississippi (2008) - Something about a few people with unclear motives floating down a river on a pontoon boat. The sound was so bad on the DVD that I couldn't hear most of the dialogue, and there were no subtitles to help. This is easily the most irritating thing I've watched this month, thanks to the crappy sound.
87) Tale of a Vampire (1992) [B-Movie TV] - A vampire stalks a librarian. I was bored.

10/18/20

88) Legacy of Evil (The Possession of Michael D.) (1995) - A family moves into a new house. Weird stuff starts to happen. They call a local parapsychologist. I may be reading too much into it, but I think this was meant to be a "break the cycle of abuse" metaphor. I've seen worse.
89) Pledges (2018) - Three guys and three gals get dropped off in the woods to complete their fraternity & sorority hazing while another guy and gal in a van watch them on video. After a long setup, something starts killing them. It was just over an hour long, but I fell asleep partway through and had to go back and finish it later.
90) Camp Blood First Slaughter (2014) [B-Movie TV] - Idiots get killed by killer wearing a clown mask. It's a Camp Blood movie. If you've seen one, you know what you're in for, and you know it ain't good.
91) All Cheerleaders Die (2013) - At a party the night before the first day of their senior year, some high school cheerleaders get into a fight with their football player boyfriends. They drive away with the boys in pursuit, and crash through a guardrail into a river where they drown. A goth chick who just happened to be nearby brings them back to life, but now they're hungry.

10/19/20

92) Dangerous Worry Dolls (2008) - A young woman in a very minimal security correctional facility is given some Guatemalan Worry Dolls by her daughter on visiting day. She puts them under her pillow at night, and they crawl into her ear, giving her a huge zit on her forehead and the strength and confidence to fight back against the people who have wronged her.
93) Demonic Toys 2 (Demonic Toys: Personal Demons) (2010) - A wealthy toy collector and a few other people get stranded overnight in an Italian castle and are attacked by demonic toys.
94) Bloodrunners (2017) - It's 1933, and Ice-T is the leader of a gang of vampires who opens a speakeasy in a small town in New Jersey to use as a cover for draining victims and selling their blood to other vampires.
95) Camp Dread (2014) - A down and out director (Eric Roberts), once famous for a '80s slasher series called "Summer Camp," recruits a group of troubled young people for a reality show set at a summer camp, offering a million dollar prize to the winner. The story drags on until, eventually, people start dying, then it drags some more. Danielle Harris is only in it for about five minutes, but it may be worth a look if you're a Felissa Rose fan.
96) El Carnaval de las Bestias (The Beasts' Carnival, Human Beasts) (1980) - Paul Naschy is hired by his Japanese girlfriend's crime family to steal some diamonds. After stealing them, he turns on his employers, and steals the stolen diamonds again, and runs off, with his girlfriend and her brother in hot pursuit. After he gets shot up in a gunfight, he passes out and later awakens, convalescing in a doctor's house, being cared for (and fought over) by the doctor's two lovely, lustful daughters. After lots of gunplay and sleaze, it finally decides to become a horror movie when someone starts killing people and Naschy thinks he sees the doctor's dead wife everywhere. Took its sweet time getting where it was going, but I suppose it could've been worse.
97) Los Ojos Azules de la Muñeca Rota (The Blue Eyes of the Broken Doll) (1974) - Paul Naschy is hitchhiking through France when he gets picked up by a woman with a severely scarred right hand and arm who offers him a job as a gardener and general handyman at her home where she lives with her two sisters; a wheelchair bound invalid and a nymphomaniac. When he isn't bedding one of the sisters, Naschy has nightmares and visions of himself strangling women. Is he the serial killer murdering women in the nearby town? Another slow as molasses movie, but at least Naschy was younger and in better shape and the sisters were closer to his age in this one, so it was a little more believable that every woman in the movie wanted to have sex with him. Has a pretty decent, whacked-out, overly complex, Giallo-style denouement, but the bouncy recurring theme on the soundtrack did not do the movie any favors.
98) 31 (2016) [tubi] - Five carnies driving somewhere are abducted and forced to play a "game" for their lives against some goofy looking costumed killers. So, basically a rip-off of Slashers (2001), but worse, somehow.

10/20/20

99) Blood Punch (2014) [tubi] - A college kid has his meth lab closed down and gets sent to rehab where he meets a girl who is looking for someone who can make meth for her psycho boyfriend so they can all get rich. They head to a cabin in the woods, stuff happens, and, after the psycho boyfriend gets killed, the guy and the girl wake up and relive the same day over and over, desperately seeking a way to break the loop. This one's pretty good.
100) The Night Walker (1964) - After her rich, blind husband appears to die in a lab explosion, Barbara Stanwyck starts to have nightmares (or are they real?). I expected better from a Robert Bloch script, but it wasn't terrible.
101) Aerobi-Cide (Killer Workout) (1987) - Cheezy very '80s slasher about a killer murdering people at a gym (often with a large safety pin) while the police investigate. Packed with lots of svelte chicks aerobicising and burly guys awkwardly fistfighting. A goofy fun time.
102) Waxwork (1988) - A group of friends goes to a wax museum that suddenly appeared in their neighborhood overnight, and a few of them disappear. It's up to the remaining friends to find out what happened. Fun, goofy '80s monster flick. I had seen it before, but it had been awhile, and I thought I'd stick with the '80s for a bit.

10/21/20

103) Waxwork II: Lost in Time (1992) - Picks up right at the end of the first film. The evil that escaped at the end of that film kills Buck Flower, then the girl is put on trial for his murder. To fix things, she and Zach Galligan use an ancient artifact to travel through time. Fun sequel - enough like the first one to be familiar, yet different enough to be new. I had seen this one during an earlier OHMC also, but had forgotten most of it.
104) Killer Sofa (2019) [tubi] - A young lady acquires a recliner that had been in a storage locker where some guy was dismembered. The recliner kills some people. Yep, a recliner. Why'd they call it Killer Sofa if they weren't going to use a sofa? I thought it might be a language thing (maybe "recliners" are called "sofas" in New Zealand), but they call it a "recliner" in the film, so who knows?
105) BvZ: Bigfoot Vs. Zombies (2016) - After an experimental concoction resurrects the corpses at a body farm, it's up to Bigfoot (well, a guy in an old gorilla costume), who lives in the forest nearby, to save the day. Of course it wasn't good, but it was short and it wasn't unwatchable.
106) Monster (Humanoids From the Deep) (1980) - Genetically modified fish creatures attack a small fishing village, killing the men and raping the women. An old cable TV favorite. A bit slower going than I remembered, but also much gorier. Holds up as a pretty good monster movie, and as an interesting transition from the ecological horror movies prevalent in the '70s to the bloody slashers of the '80s.

10/22/20

107) Demon of Paradise (1987) - A legendary ancient lizard-man gets pissed off by dynamite fishing in his river and starts attacking people. The local female herpetologist suspects an ancient lizard-man is loose and convinces the local sheriff, who thinks the nearby Paradise Resort should be shut down, but the owner of the resort needs the business and wants to keep things open. Take a typical formula for aquatic beast movies, throw in lots of gunplay and several explosions, and you end up with this so-so Cirio Santiago time killer.
108) The Pyramid (2014) - Three archaeologists, a reporter, and a camera man go into a newly discovered pyramid buried in the Egyptian desert and get lost. What follows is a hodgepodge of traditional movie and "found footage" as we follow them deeper and deeper into the pyramid.
109) L'orribile segreto del Dr. Hichcock (The Horrible Dr. Hichcock) (1962) - Barbara Steele marries a rich guy. They move into his big, scary house and Barbara Steele gets scared. A slow burning, unremarkable Gothic tale, but Barbara Steele was especially lovely in it.
110) The Clinic (2010) - A young couple driving across Australia are driven off the road by someone in a truck, so they stop to rest for the night at a seedy motel nearby. The man steps out of the room for a smoke, and when he gets back his pregnant fiancee is gone. So he calls the cops, who end up arresting him. The woman wakes up somewhere, naked in a tub of ice, with her baby gone, removed by C-section. Turns out she's in an old slaughterhouse, along with a few other women who have had their babies taken away too. Now they have to figure out why this happened to them, try to stay alive, try and get their babies, and try to get away. Wasn't bad, and it takes place at Christmas if you're looking for suggestions for Holiday Challenge viewing.

10/23/20

111) Midsommar (2019) - A guy invites some friends to a summer festival in his rustic village in Sweden. Overly long, with no surprises (I didn't even watch the trailer, just saw a few screenshots before watching, and I knew how it would turn out from the start), but it looked really nice, and it didn't put me to sleep.
112) Sadistic Eroticism (2012) [B-Movie TV] - Shot on video shitpile about a busty vampire teacher who starts a new job at a high school.
113) Ame no machi (The Vanished) (2006) [B-Movie TV] - An unidentified dead kid sits up on the autopsy table then runs out of the morgue. A reporter investigates the kid's identity based on the school uniform he was wearing when found, and it turns out the kid died during a field trip thirty years earlier.

10/24/20

114) Outpost: Black Sun (2012) - A young female Nazi hunter goes somewhere in Eastern Europe where she runs into a scientist, some soldiers, and a bunch of Nazi zombies.
115) Axegrinder (2006) [B-Movie TV] - Six young people go camping in the woods where local legend says a serial killer lurks. Well, at least it wasn't a Camp Blood movie.
116) Camp Blood 5 (2016) [B-Movie TV] - Idiots get killed by killer wearing a clown mask. It's a Camp Blood movie. If you've seen one, you know what you're in for, and you know it ain't good.

10/25/20

117) Outpost III: Rise of the Spetsnaz (2013) - Abandoning the story set up at the end of the previous film, this one is instead a prequel to the first. It's 1945 and a few Russian soldiers fighting the Nazis are captured and taken to the secret underground base where they fight Nazi monsters.
118) Storage 24 (2012) - After a military transport plane crashes in London, several people trapped inside a nearby storage facility due to the crash are attacked by some kind of creature.
119) The Tomb of Ligeia (1964) - Vincent Price is a widower living in the ruins of an old abbey in England who meets and marries the Lady of an adjoining estate. After she moves into the abbey, she begins to believe that she is being haunted by her new husband's late wife.

10/26/20

120) Bloodmania (Herschell Gordon Lewis' BloodMania) (2017) [tubi] - Herschell Gordon Lewis introduces four stories (two he directed). "Gory Story" - A guy with a hook has an escalating series of unfortunate bloody accidents. "Attack of Conscience" - A woman dies in various ways. "The Night Hag" - A hair eating woman lives in the walls of a house. The first part of this was played like a sitcom (complete with laugh track) for some reason. "GOREgeous" - The recently fired manager of an all girl rock group goes on a killing spree. Not very good, but they were at least watchable. I would've preferred the stories be more serious, and filmed in Florida instead of Canada.
121) The Mortuary Collection (2019) - Clancy Brown plays a mortician with a large collection of books who tells a job applicant three stories, then she tells him one. First, a female thief's greed causes her trouble. Second, a college frat boy doesn't use a condom, and something not at all surprising happens to him. Third, a man's new wife grows ill. Lastly, the woman's story is about a babysitter battling an intruder. Pretty good overall, mostly thanks to Clancy Brown.
122) A Estranha Hospedaria dos Prazeres (The Strange Hostel of Naked Pleasures) (1976) [YouTube] - Another not quite Coffin Joe movie. People gyrate uncontrollably for about nine minutes, then ol' Joe pops out of his coffin to introduce the movie, the credits roll, then Joe drones on about something while Milk Duds on strings float by onscreen. Finally the movie really starts and almost Coffin Joe, wearing a derby, hires some people to work in his hostel. Then a storm starts (for atmosphere) and more people show up, and Innkeeper Joe either gives them a key or tells them there are no more vacancies. The people in the rooms have a drunken dance party, gamble, and split up loot. This shit drags on for a long time and finally ends up exactly where anyone with a functioning brain already knew it was going. The static IFC logo in the corner was more interesting than the movie.
123) Geomeun jip (Black House) (2007) [B-Movie TV] - An insurance claims adjuster suspects a client is killing people for insurance money.

10/27/20

124) Return of the Family Man (1989) [B-Movie TV] - Eight people stay at an old house where a guy killed his family several years earlier. Coincidentally, the killer has just escaped from a prison bus and heads to the house too. Filmed in South Africa, but supposed to be in the United States, leading to some unintentional humor (or humour in this case).
125) Shallow Grave (1987) [tubi] - Four ditzy college girls are driving to Fort Lauderdale for spring break when they get a flat tire somewhere in Georgia. One of the girls goes into the woods to take a leak and sees the local sheriff murder his mistress.
126) Mom (1991) [tubi] - After Brion James moves into an old woman's spare room, he bites her, turning her into a ghoul.

10/28/20

127) Wish Upon (2017) - A guy finds an old Chinese music box which will grant seven wishes and gives it to his teenaged daughter who makes wishes with deadly results.
128) Monster Brawl (2011) - No plot to this one. Just monsters wrasslin'. A silly monster themed time-waster. I've never been a wrestling fan, but I found it mildly entertaining. Wrestling fans will probably me more forgiving. I could see using it as background visuals at a Halloween party, or just something to half watch while handing out candy on Halloween night.
129) The Thompsons (2012) - Sequel to The Hamiltons (2006) which I saw 5 years ago and barely remember watching. After getting caught in the middle of a holdup gone bad, the family, now wanted by the police, flees to Europe where they learn some family history and meet a family like them that is looking for some new blood.
130) Resident Evil (2002) - Following a lab accident, a paramilitary unit and a few others go into an underground facility to battle a rogue A.I. unit, zombies, and a few CGI creatures. I saw this back in 2003, but I don't think I had seen it since.
131) Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) - Picks up right after the first movie, with Milla Jovovich waking up in a hospital after the Umbrella Corporation has done a few more experiments on her. She meets a few survivors and they fight zombies and CGI monsters while they try to escape the city before a nuclear bomb detonates. I think I had seen this one before too.
132) Resident Evil: Extinction (2007) - This one jumps ahead five years (I think). The world is now a barren wasteland, and Milla Jovovich joins up with some survivors and they fight zombies and CGI monsters.

10/29/20

133) Octaman (1971) [American Horrors] - Low budget, amusing Creature from the Black Lagoon rip-off with people in an RV looking for a "sea creature with the arms of an octopus who walks on the land like a man." I woke up early and decided to see what was on, this was starting so I decided I might as well watch it again.
134) Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010) - Starts where the previous movie ended, with Milla Jovovich and an army of clones attacking an Umbrella Corporation facility in Japan. But that doesn't last long. Then she goes off in search of the other survivors from the previous movie and meets up with some new people and they fight zombies and CGI monsters -- in 3D!
135) Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) - More of the same. Starts where the previous one ended, then quickly switches gears after Milla Jovovich is captured and taken to an Umbrella Corporation facility somewhere in the former U.S.S.R.. A rescue team comes for her, and they must fight their way out against zombies, clones, and CGI creatures before the facility is blown up -- in 3D!

10/30/20

136) Blood Ties (1991) [B-Movie TV] - After his parents are staked and burned by "hunters," a teen goes to Long Beach, California to look for a family friend, part of a well-to-do Carpathian-American community with a secret.
137) Hônteddo kyanpasu (Haunted Campus) (2016) [B-Movie TV] - At a university where a student killed herself after failing an entrance exam, a nervous young fellow who sees dead people joins the occult research club on campus (because a girl he has a crush on joined it) and they hang out, eat snacks, and hunt ghosts. This was a cute and occasionally funny film.
138) Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2016) - This one skips ahead a bit and doesn't start where the previous one ended. It's now 10 years since the events in the first film, and Milla Jovovich is sent back to the underground facility where it all started. She and a few others fight against zombies and CGI creatures to try to find the antivirus to save mankind before time runs out -- in 3D! Rather disappointing ending to an already mediocre ser‪ies.

10/31/20

139) Boo! (2018) - On Halloween, a family in Detroit receives a chain letter/gift bag on their front porch. The dad breaks the chain because they don't do Halloween in that house, and later that night the family members start hearing voices and seeing things. Not good.
140) 10/31 (2017) [tubi] - Malvolia the Queen of Screams introduces five short stories which take place on Halloween. "The Old Hag" - Two guys are shooting a commercial with the owner of a bed and breakfast, and one of them keeps seeing an old woman creeping around the house that no one else can see. "Trespassers" - A couple on a first date leave a crappy movie early to go somewhere to be "scared." The girl (a local) takes the guy (who is new in town) to a house in the country where a murder occurred to look at a scarecrow. "Killing the Dance" - A teen girl has to take her weird little brother along to work with her at a lock in party at a roller rink. "Halloween Blizzard of '91" - A family trapped in their home because of a blizzard is visited by three trick-or-treaters and Santa Claus. "The Samhain Slasher" - A serial killer escapes police custody. Mostly sucked.
141) Hubie Halloween (2020) [Netflix] - A mental patient escapes from an asylum and it is suspected he will head back to his hometown where Adam Sandler is the village idiot who thinks his purpose in life is to make sure everybody is safe on Halloween (so he has appointed himself the town's Halloween "Monitor"). Goofy (and unfortunately, not very funny) time waster with a pretty good cast. I have no clue what they were thinking with this one. It's too "adult" to be a family film, and too childish to be an adult film.
142) Halloween (2018) - Forty years after the events in the first Halloween, Michael Myers is being transferred to another facility and the bus crashes, freeing him to go look for Jamie Lee Curtis who has had forty years to prepare for this eventuality. Not bad. It was actually pretty good for a Halloween sequel.
143) The Legend of Halloween Jack (2018) [Vudu] - After a guy who was arrested for murder is released on a technicality, a few citizens decide to take justice into their own hands. So they dress the guy up as a scarecrow, kill him, and bury him in a field. Later, one of the citizens decides he can't live with what he did, and commits suicide at the grave. His blood resurrects the dead guy who then goes after the other villagers who killed him.

11/1/20 (Overtime - Midnight to Dawn)

144) Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) - An expedition travels down the Amazon looking for the rest of a fossil and instead find a living creature -- in 3D!
145) Revenge of the Creature (1955) - A new expedition captures the gill-man and takes him to Florida where he can be studied -- in 3D!
