September 30 [From Dusk, 7:01pm Texas time] [Criterion Crossover] (2 hours, 56 minutes watched)
01. Kristy (2014, 88 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Overly familiar masked intruder concept across a lifeless and unconvincing single student dorm on campus during Thanksgiving. Tracking shots galore makes it feel like the director was more interested in staging with it sometimes paying off in interesting shots and panning around corridors or through doors artfully. Occasionally cheap with convenient fog in one scene only and nonsense hiding just out of camera view (never mind that no one else is around). There is a 'Kristy' concept that might be more interesting but never gets much fleshed out and ultimately feels tacked on. Despite some creative camera work plays it too safe trending on generic without much flare or style. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. 1st
02. Hausu (1977, 88 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Delightfully upbeat and casual hallucinatory film with some strange imagery and nice pacing. Plot elements drop in and out of continuity but the visuals are ambitious making for a breezy strange appetizer of a film. Format: Streaming [Netflix]. Theme

October 1 [Werewolf Theme Night] (11 hours, 17 minutes watched)
03. Good Manners (2017, 135 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Whimsical magical realism that keeps you guessing featuring dance segments, somber music, and a bittersweet twisted plot. The settings are often intentionally light with pink chairs, party streamers, blue walls, etc giving it an exotic flare distracting from the grim horror. There's a creative effort to restrain some of the most horrible elements to focus on heart. In equal parts bloody and gut punching with needy characters looking out for others and struggling with their own connections. I cannot decide if I loved or hated the ending which seems to continue the film's emphasis on relationships over carnage. Format: Streaming [Vudu]. Theme 1st
04. Werewolf Woman (1976, 98 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Sleazy and stylish with mean spirited and shallow plot. I really liked Werewolf Woman when I first saw it but this time is seemed to drag the last half and not carry the euro horror fever dream mood like it seemed to before. Confusing disposable plot. Format: Blu-ray [Raro Video]. Theme
05. Night of the Werewolf (1981, 92 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Moody escalating warfare between vampires and a love struck confused werewolf anti-hero with bravado and energy. Ornamental scenes help it go a long way and after a while when the vampire v werewolf scenes pick up it excells. Format: Blu-ray [Scream Factory]. Theme
06. Bonehill Road (2017, 85 minutes) ★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Tempted by this because it was on a 'best indie horror films list' but was a letdown. Cringe-worthy ham of a villain actor blathers away at women with questionable makeup effects. Some of the staging is interesting as a road movie but not all of the characters made sense (some were not developed at all) and elements that seemed intended to be intense just came across as awkward. I think there was a sexism commentary in there but it seemed awkward and more a framing than anything thought worthy. Format: Streaming [Vudu]. Theme 1st
07. Haxan (1929, 107 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Great effects and sense of hysteria around witchcraft. The pseudo-science is a bit strange and documentary approach somewhat at odds with fantasy of a lot of the imagery. Surprisingly well acted but what a heavy handed final segment about 'modern times.' Haxan runs a bit long. I could just run the devil effect clips on a loop and be satisfied, forget the narration cards, and awkward over explanation. Format: Streaming [Vudu]. Subset
08. Hunter's Moon (2020, 85 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Aimless for much of it's run time with characters just popping in because they're straining to set up an un-necessary backstory for a plot that seems familiar. There's not much content here and in the end it's an under cooked wafer thin concept that I think we've seen before. The ending was what made anything work but wasn't a home run. Format: Streaming [Vudu UHD].Theme 1st
09. Werewolf of London (1935, 75 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Well staged with gravitas in proceedings that flirt with cool ideas (like a werewolf plant antidote) that never really seem to go anywhere. The transformation effects are decent but not much really happens, it's subdued in a way I failed to appreciate even when I could see quality actors and subtle setup. Format: Streaming [Vudu]. Theme

October 2 [They Shoot Zombies Don't They Best Theme Night] (11 hours, 7 minutes watched)
10. Shutter (2004, 97 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Some great twists. I love the concept of spirit photography. Shutter has one of the most elaborate multiple origin stories ever. The ghost is creepy and the conclusion stuck with me for a while after originally seeing it. Format: Digital [Netflix].Theme
11. Road Games (1981, 101 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ Brilliantly subtle with Stacy Keach one man showing a subtle thriller about a truck driver with suspicions and twists that are often convincing and as ambiguous as the plot often is. Psychological without being too abstract. Format: Streaming [Netflix].Theme 1st
12. Frontier(s) [Unrated] (2007, 108 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Brutal and politically edged film that feels like there's more subtext than I immediately 'got' with a few plot elements that are overly convenient (like rapid fire guns that miss every time). Fast paced and intense. Format: Streaming [Vudu].Theme 1st
13. Screamers (1995, 108 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Gritty scifi action horror with plot twists galore and a cool decoy robot element. Good sci fi robot stuff, but there's only so much that can be done with sci fi robots that hasn't been done before. Peter Weller carries the film. Format: Streaming [Vudu].Theme 1st
14. Death Bed: The Bed That Eats (1977, 77 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Amazing execution for a thin concept with cool digestive effects for an unintentionally funny but also gruesome experience. The indie elements make Death Bed work more than it could if it were a polished studio film.
A narrator imbues a personality and continuity into the images that sometimes feel disjointed, it's an interesting structure. Format: Blu-ray [Cult Epics].
15. The Beast Within [With Monstervision interludes] (1982, 98 minutes for film + 14 minutes for Monstervision) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Mystery elements thrive through Beast Within and it's got some gorey effects that make it a too often overlooked 80s gem despite sleazy bookends and elements that seem to throw in different subgenres to see what sticks. I remember catching this 'live' on TNT Monstervision and being blown away but Joe Bob's comments don't hold up much, more humor than insightful. Format: Blu-ray [Scream Factory] / Digital [Monstervision segments on Youtube]. Theme
16. Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016, 86 minutes) ★★★★★★★★★✰ Autopsy of Jane Doe is a brillant film; taking place with few characters who seem like good people in a small setting it's premised filled with such cryptic mystery and gore from the go. I'd seen Autopsy before but even after this viewing it left me feeling a little unsettled. The end reveal feels a little out of nowhere but is such an abstract and novel idea it's haunting. Deliciously resists explaining much with a thriving implied backstory. The suggestiveness and growing sense of doom is excellent. One of the best recent horror movies. Format: Digital [Vudu]. Theme Subset
17. Street Trash (2016, 86 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Strange mix of hobo 'slice of life' comedy and epic special effects. It makes one wonder why more movies don't go for the gusto and have fun with random body melting or other over the top neon gore... or even why Street Trash itself didn't offer more of the goods because it really stalls so much in the middle and the odd humor only takes it so far. Trim 30 minutes, melt more bodies, or go home. The junkyard hobo community is a cool slum underdog theme but it feels like it 'stopped at 68 and owes us one' rather than going all the way with the Viper gore we came for. Aimless to a fault but with some of the coolest effects ever.Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme Subset

October 3 [Pandemic/Isolation/Medical Theme Night] (13 hours, 3 minutes watched)
18. Dr Giggles (1992, 96 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Fun casual slasher film with a silly villain and mild slapstick elements work well. Sometimes Dr Giggles maniacal laughter doesn't quite match becoming distracting. Maybe it helped to be nostalgic for the 90s or catching this in the right mood but it was decent. Very hit and miss.Format: Digital [FangandoNow HD].1st ThemeSubset
19. Host (2020, 57 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Disappointing rehash of the most typical jump scares and staple supernatural elements with thin characters and wates the videoconference hook - ok, one of the jump scares got me but you'd be better off rewatching Paranormal Activity. Format: Digital [Shudder].Theme
20. The Beach House (2019, 88 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Trippy but ecological cosmic horror with a neat reveal but some struggles getting there - a marijuana edible element seemed pretentious but some of it was engaging and high brow. Format: Digital [Shudder].1st Theme
21. Night Eats the World (2014, 94 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Artfully shot and moody but nothing new for zombie films and perhaps too subdued. I enjoyed it but our hero is generic and zombie tropes over familiar. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
22. Prodigy (2018, 81 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Tense clever pit of wills against an unusual child and a psychologist that doesn't overstay itself with an unusual structure. The child actress is strong and chess feels like a good metaphor for the methodical puzzle-like scriping. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
23. The Chilling (1989, 90 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ As much as I enjoy finding good horror movies; sometimes it's nice to happen on a crappy cable TV style popcorn flick that hits right even if not one in their right mind should probably watch The Chilling. The junk food wild card of enjoying horror. Stupid casual zombie romp that rants about cryogenics being satanic but breezy horror film that I enjoyed more than I should have. Format: DVD [Media Blasters / Code Red].1st Theme
24. Doctor Death: Seeker of Souls (1973, 89 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Mystic with theatrical actors and a wizard (?) with performance anxiety that goes off rails a bit telegraphing it's twist too early but spoiling a lot of the build up. It's slow going for a while. Format: Blu-ray [Scorpion Releasing (Limited Edition)].1st Theme
25. Girl on the Third Floor (2019, 93 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Weird and dark home improvement morality tale that nails a lot of haunted house elements while force feeding a laborious backstory. There are some obvious weaknesses but the effects and creepiness work well - maybe I'm just a sucker for haunted house stories and we don't get many well done these days. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
26. Gonjiam: Haunted Mansion (2018, 95 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ A decent scare after a ton of setup to the point I'm not sure it paid off and parts were a bit overly familiar but there were a few scenes that were well crafted and tense enough to be highlights. One of the few horror films to sink in with me leaving me looking over my shoulder and questioning reality after it's over despite obvious flaws with pacing, unmemorable characters, and generic mythos. [Reminded me too much of Grave Enounters, which I think was superior]Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme

October 4 [Zombie Theme Night] (10 hours, 36 minutes watched)
27. Zombieland: Double Tap (2019, 99 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Enjoyed more theatrically last year than this second viewing. 2x Tap is a big step down into self parody - these are not about plot but no excuse to be this superficial and the humor is more miserly (tone deaf lampooning of hippies [?], airhead blones, and vegans feel like 'who cares' cheap shots from grandpa about a bygone era oblivious to our age of nazi punching revolt & social unrest). Jesse Eisenberg is a bit more obnoxious here stealing the spotlight from the rest of the group dashing the chemistry that made the first so great. Pail imitation is more of an enemy here than zombies. Some of the humor and references get more tiresome with each rehash - the humor feels much less diverse beating the dead horse of a few lukewarm hooks in frustrated search for a laugh. I love the ending but we needed things to get metal sooner than they do.Format: Digital [Vudu UHD]. ThemeSubset
28. Zoo (2018, 95 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Couples angst holed up in their apartment to during a zombie apocalypse to fight the real zombie of their stale marriage adding little to zombie genre but doing it with depth and heart as they aimlessly fight the doldrums and dream romantically. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme
29. Zeder (1983, 100 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Cryptic metaphysical zombie conspiracy thriller with bizzare reanimation and conspiracies that gets a little aimless chase questing through Italy but ends on an ironic and satisfying note that has been copied since. Format: Blu-ray [Code Red]. 1st Theme
30. Wrinkles the Clown (2019, 78 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Entertaining documentary about clown mythos that steers a bit heavily into interviewing kids and staging an initial segment before exploring a YouTube video - ultimately superficial and fluffy but clever in parts.Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
31. Zombie Fight Club (2014, 95 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Looking for wholesale zombie carnage after some subdued zombie comedies I tuned into a first half filled with pretentious depraved rappers and randomized police zombie action that we pretty meh then a much better second half with the sort of martial arts fighting zombies action one might have expected. I wish they would have made a full movie out of the second half to settle some of the pacing issues. Format: Blu-ray [Scream Factory]. 1st Theme
32. Gags the Clown (2018, 89 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Cool idea that gets sidetracked by it's 'found footage' reports / pod caster gimmick focusing on cartoonish 'real' characters resulting in some pacing issues. Gags is appropriately mysterious and creepy when he does show up but they needed more of him. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
33. Ratter (2015, 80 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ Cryptic voyeurism film where we spy on a young college student from her laptop, Wii, and phone from the perspective of a stalker in a movie that does not offer explanations only experiences. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st

October 5 [Shot on Video Theme Night] (9 hours, 53 minutes watched)
34. Boardinghouse (1982, 98 minutes) ★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Boardinghouse is a cool concept and nicely dated - a sleazebag rents his house out to a bunch of eligible women and he is telekinetic and the house is haunted. I don't usually say this but the sleaze took away from the sort of cool leering suburban vibe and the docudrama start with more deaths than you can count on one hand ...then it gets sleepy. Deliver the goods, Boardinghouse - so much party, so little death. Some of the over acting is done with so much gusto and glee it's amusing and there are a few good moments.Format: DVD [Code Red]. ThemeSubset
35. Demon Cop (1990, 81 minutes) ★½✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Mystery police procedural with a snitch going to a radio host, some vietnam vet buddy cops, gang bangers (convincing and otherwise), a wheelchair temptress pulling the strings, and a bunch of other stuff that suggests more of a plot than hits home despite all the explaining. Demon Cop is like a werewolf demon popping in and out of taking over a human form so the film doesn't have to deliver much on the premise until a climax. There is a touch of social commentary. "A lifetime of madness in my asylum of horrors" Format: Digital [Youtube]. 1st] Theme
36. 555 (1988, 80 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Decently gorey formulaic slasher with murder, police dialog, murder, police, etc until it gets to a disappointing letdown of an ending where the conclusion falls out of the blue and summarily resolved but bonus points for blood and sleaze. Format: Digital [Youtube]. 1st] Theme
37. Minotaur (2016, 91 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Decent creature and fake history setting with a lot of filled about an odd slave incest romance, lepers, and we really just want to see the gnarly Minotaur, which the film eventually delivers on in a mix of practical and decent cgi effects. I'm a sucker for action horror movies and found this one to be fun.Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st] Theme
38. The Prophecy (1995, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Elevated by atmospheric set design and high caliber acting tells us about it's cool premise more than it shows anything but with such richness that it works but maybe just because I am a sucker for religious horror. Format: Digital [Vudu].
39. The Housemaid (2016, 105 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Scenic Vietnamese plantation that twists generic horror tropes for some spooks with a script that's mostly effective but an ending that's more of a letdown than a 'twist.' There's some great imagery and tension at times poetic but other times too engineered (especially in the last third). Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st]

October 5 [Photography Theme Night] (10 hours, 24 minutes watched)
40. Images (1972, 104 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ A surreal film with some 'wtf' moments and staying power that left me puzzling over what I had seen. Well shot images, what a scenic film - I felt like I could smell the wood grain and polyester. Seems to balance shocks, emotion, and fantasy neatly.Format: Digital [iTunes]. 1st Theme Subset
41. Polaroid (2019, 88 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Starts off slow and generic but there is a parade of smart convincing plot twists with mystery thriller elements that carry the film past it’s ‘meh’ premise which borrows too heavily from other films like Final Destination. Initially guilty of pointing to terror rather than showing it with omnious music and gasping characters but sticking with it nets better than average pg13 fare.Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme Subset
42. Camera Obscura (2017, 95 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Smart dark concept of morality dilemma but leans too heavily into 'maybe this is a delusion' cheap shot; delightfully ambiguous with a bizarre gutsy conclusion. Gorey and relatable. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme Subset
43. Who's Watching Oliver? (2017, 87 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Who's Watching Oliver is a really dumb film that should not work but somehow does. Having seen it twice I'm still not quite sure what to think of WWO but it's lack of subtlety might be it's biggest strength.Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme Subset
44. Witchery (1988, 95 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Awkward staging with some gruesome effects that never really stick. I enjoyed Witchery more a few years ago but I think it's the sort of film you have to me in a mood to appreciate and is really pretty cheesy.Format: Digital [Vudu].
45. Clinger (2015, 81 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Cartoonish with a strange hot/cold lead couple chemistry. It's occassionally funny and just when it seems too silly or gets awkward with humor a bucket of blood gets tossed in the mix.Format: Digital [Vudu].
46. Game of Death (2017, 74 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Hypnotic gore and artistically shot but there's something missing with a narrative hook, it's dark and gruesome with moral weight/abandon but also kind of a thin premise. Gore abounds with exploring heads, car hits, and widescale massacre but it never loses slight of the impact, there's a breathless frustration to it even if it's often not quite clear what it happening other than 'rules of the game.' Format: Digital [Vudu].

October 7 [Frozen/Ice Theme Night] (7 hours, 42 minutes watched)
47. Frozen (2010, 93 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Frozen is a wonderfully tense movie with an excellent premise that’s believable. It never really ‘jumps the shark’ but waffles between sizzling engaging suspense and groan worthy ‘twists’ that while not implausible are too coincidental. Deus ex machina and ‘dumb choices’ abound to the point it hurts what could otherwise have been a ‘modern classic.’ I think this might be one of Adam Green’s better films (second to Digging Up the Marrow).Format: Digital [Vudu]. Theme Subset
48. Black Mountain Side (2017, 99 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Cool metaphysical premise that feels novel with some intense twist even if at times the 'chronological' date segments start to feel disjointed.Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme
49. The Rental (2020, 88 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Cool idea but wildly inconsistent chracters nearly tank it - no one does anything true to type and it all feels too staged to convenience the ultimately thin plot which makes the characters unrelatable and half the film is character drama. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st
50. Unnatural (2015, 89 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Stupid idea plays out in predictable ways to tell a shallow imitation of ecological horror. It's like they wrote a thin concern as a horror movie to be a joke then forgot to make it funny. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st Theme
51. The Blackcoat's Daughter (2015, 93 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Unquestionably artistic. Atmospheric but with glacieral pacing as painful as it was poetic. The stilted reserved manners of all actresses takes some getting use to and I wish there had been more change in the pacing/style during different points. The different time frames mix wonderfully but some elements, like Joan, could use more depth. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st Theme Subset

October 8 [Hammer/Amicus Theme Night] (9 hours, 39 minutes watched)
52. The Untamed (2016, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Creature of the year award. Memorable creature feature with (too obvious?) subtext about passion and an interesting focus on dramatic cues rather than straight horror. It's deep and really looks at the neediness of people but also have a slimy bisexual alien. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st
53. Luz (2018, 71 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Surprisingly pretentious that left me feeling like I didn't 'get it' because it seems to take possession tropes and showcase them in a forensic interview and cross dressing might be an overly superficial way to look at it but not as shocking as I think it wants to me.Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st
54. Dracula AD 1972 (1972, 96 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Upbeat dated 70s culture vibe is fun with loud musical segments and partying kids experimenting with the occult that drags a bit in the middle and might have been better without using Dracula as a plot device.Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st Theme
55. Close Calls (2017, 129 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Well paced old woman in the attic, strange calls in the house, surprise film with a scantily clad actress trapsing around a giallo lighted house with twists that change the focus on the film keeping it strange/fresh.Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st
56. To the Devil a Daughter (1976, 95 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Parallel action scenes of occult dualing fathers zig zags along to a disappointingly abrupt ending.Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st Theme
57. The Tunnel (2011, 90 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Atmospheric setting found footage set under the tunnels of Australia that doesn't offer much new or have a lot of depth but delivers on some creepy pixelated visuals.Format: Blu-ray (UK Import). 1st

October 9 [Guillermo Del Toro Approved Theme Night] (9 hours, 52 minutes watched)
58. Habit (2016, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Breezy hangout film with a slow burn vampire romance starting fun and becoming less and less subtle in sinister approach. Format: Blu-ray (Scream Factory, signed slipcover). 1stTheme
59. Frenzy (1972, 116 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Frenzy's got a great pacing and characterization. The murders are surprisingly brutal/uncomfortable. Complicated but never convoluted. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1stTheme
60. The Beast and the Magic Sword (1983, 117 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Bizzare mashup film. Very strange to see samurai running around speaking enthusiastic Spanish but overall a colorful and trippy film. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1stSubset
61. The Devil Rides Out (1968, 95 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰Tense with gravity. The effects are effective and actors that chew scenery with the best of them really selling the film. That ending though... Format: Digital (Vudu). 1stSubset
62. Midnighters (2017, 94 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Serviceable thriller with some smart twists but characters that are unrelatable to a degree it makes some of the twists less effective and it's 'wolves vs wolves' style sometimes struggles to balance the irony. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st
63. The Head Hunter (2018, 72 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Visual film with less dialogue and a straight forward small scale seeming setup. There's some cool effects but obvious it's been pared down and a zinger of an ending - feels like an long short film with a simple conflict. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st

October 10 [Nightmare USA Theme Night] (8 hours, 39 minutes watched)
64. Eaten Alive (1976, 91 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Why is everyone wearing ridiculous wigs? Tobe Hooper's corny humor is often a miss in my opinion but at it's kinetic best in films like Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 where it distorts most bizarre depraved antics or has an actor with chops like Bill Mosley to ham it up. This is no TCM 2. There's some potential in the premise - not enough horror movies are set in the gritty swamp, scythes are atmospheric and cool weapons we don't see enough of. I feel like hiding somewhere in the mix is a compelling film. The colored lighting is a nice touch and I love the kid hiding under the house where no one can reach subplot. The strange prostitution stuff with underage hookers and bizarre looking madams seems odd but I guess intended to be ‘thematic’ or part of the humor. The villain is not over the top enough to benefit from the Hooper mania of the script.Format: Blu-ray (Arrow). 1stTheme Subset
65. The Alien Dead (1980, 74 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Obvious low budget with surreal and gnarly premise most involving strange alien zombies stumbling around back country swamps. The effects are poor but atmosphere rich enough to compensate and a script that does not get overly ambitious giving it a scenic memorable aura. Format: Blu-ray (Retromedia, signed by Fred Olen Ray). 1stTheme
66. Superstition (1982, 85 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Witch slasher film with generous pacing to murders from the start with a great fake scare prank hook, red herrings, period flashbacks, exorcism rituals, a ranting swamp woman, and a memorable ending. Format: Digital (Vudu). Theme
67. The Power (1984, 84 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Great premise but stalls out turning a cool Aztec curse ideal into a generic enough subpar possession film that doesn't push the envelop enough. Format: Blu-ray (Code Red). 1stTheme
68. Antrum: The Deadliest Film Every Made (2018, 95 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Film within a film idea that starts off strong and has a clever idea framing a 'lost film' but then shows us this relic providing it to be uninteresting, overly long, and oddly staged then end. It reminds me of an inferior Hills Run Red and seems to focus most on recreating this 70s film when the more interesting premise is the modern day curse of it. I was expecting something surreal and evil but it came across more like 'tongue in cheek' mockumentary. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st
69. The House (2016, 90 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ World War 2 based supernatural thriller with a haunted house that is haunted but not in an especially convincing manner - maybe too subtle and aside from the WW2 setting doesn't offer much to the subgenre as two German soldiers attempt to unlock the secrets of a guest book. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st

October 11 [Folklore Theme Night] (12 hours, 45 minutes watched)
70. Mermaid: The Lake of the Dead (2018, 90 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Slick production with haunting and mysterious tone that takes a strange idea and shoehorns it into Haunted house tropes dashing the unique of having an 'evil Mermaid' who is not even really a mermaid resulting in a not bad but unremarkable supernatural thriller. The dubbing was distracting. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1stTheme Subset
71. Snow White: Tale of Terror (1997, 100 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Compelling update of Snow White with Sigourney Weaver stealing the show and some grim visuals coupling fantasy with action. The 'dwarfs' work better here than in most Snow White versions. I liked the live action grand fantasy staging and the realistic but grim tone. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1stTheme
72. La Llorna (2019, 97 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Political drama using La Llorna as a intense metaphor for paranoia and guilt which works well and seems smart but at times is a little heavy handed. Supernatural teasing that ends just in time of getting stale and remains tense. Format: Digital (Shudder). 1stTheme
73. Hagazussa (2017, 102 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Cryptic morbid isolation surrounding the grim fallout from a elder year prank gone wrong - the sort of slow motion poetic eye candy you experience more as a theme than as a plot that flirts with being pretentious but different enough to be engaging. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1stTheme
74. The Purge (2013, 85 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Watched this with my 12 year old daughter, it's awkward political staging makes a noble attempt at subtext but leaves as many questions as comments - popcorn action is fun enough with a dark twist. Format: Digital (Vudu UHD).
75. The Mimic (2017, 100 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Over stuffed film with a neat premise marching to a conclusion that is predictable but also hard hitting - often generic but ripe with irony (it's not a surprise move, it's a simmering burn). Format: Digital (Vudu). 1stTheme
76. Alone (2020, 98 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰Serviceable thriller with genre tropes that's close to being good. The villain is an everyman which is both a strength keeping some subtlety but also makes him seem unmemorable. Watched with my wife who said "I liked the first 45 minutes of it..." and I agree it seems to go downhill once there's a change in direction. Format: Digital (FandangoNow rental). 1st
77. Transylvania 6-5000 (1985, 93 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ I failed to appreciate it's sense of humor - I think there's too thin a device/plot and jokes seem too rambling. Ed Begley Jr shines more as a comedic actor than Jeff Goldblum here but there are so many eccentric characters it's hard for any of them to thrive even when there are funnier moments. It's interesting how little screen time the 'monsters' end up with considering the premise, I think a bellboy gets more time - Twisto needed to take back his film from the reporters. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1stTheme Subset

October 12 [Kaiju / Godzilla Theme Night] (10 hours, 31 minutes watched)
78. Destroy All Monsters (1968, 88 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ I've never been able to appreciate Kaiju/Godzilla films much. It was fun to see the encyclopedic who's who of Kaiju and scifi subplot was nicely cheesy even if it took a bit too much away from the monsters wrestling with skyscrapers we came to see. Destroy All Monsters does a decent job of selling the 'global catastrophe' of it with some of the announcers give it a news like feel. A hilarious extreme of 'jump the shark' but when King Ghidorah shows up it saves the film.Format: Digital (thanks to Alyxstarr). 1stTheme Subset
79. Cut (2000, 82 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Great villain with a 'film within a film' element that overall is more enjoyable that I expected and doesn't seem afraid to take gambles. It's a delicious blend of familiar and expected I tuned into expecting braindead fluff and while it's not without flaws (over emphasizing tropes, token characters, etc) was pleasantly surprised. Format: Digital (Vudu).
80. Rubber (2010, 82 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Pretentious and silly but with gusto and sly commentary about entertainment keeping us on our toes - it's fun without taking itself too seriously but also not pointless plus there are crazy scenes of stuff blowing up. Format: Digital (Vudu).
81. Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (2002, 88 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Godzilla film with mecha elements that felt well paced and less cheesy than I'd seen with typical Kaiju films (of which I'd never been a fan). The destruction and city scope feels more grand and relatable - more popcorn than preachy and without a lot of splintering odd subplots. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1stTheme
82. Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. (2003, 91 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ More gimmicky than 'Against Mechagodzilla' with fairies, returning kaijus, and cocky mech pilots resuming themes of man's mistakes against nature that I understand was an origin of Godzilla and Mechagodzilla is a smart metaphor for. Also more action oriented. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1stTheme
83. Shin Godzilla (2016, 120 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Heavy handed political subtext involving parades of assorted commissions I get but doesn't make as entertaining a film - these film makers must be very angry about the state of politics (I understand Japan had a series of disasters they were unprepared for due to government). The pseudo-science gets wonky with literal scenes of scientists staring at graphs. Ultimately I could see Shin Godzilla not holding up after a few changes in political eras and because of the filler. Not sure if this is the first Japanese CGI godzilla but the effects were convincing enough and even creepier than we usually seeFormat: Digital (Vudu). 1stTheme
84. The Alien Factor (1978, 80 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Cheap but spirited with questionable acting and effects but heart. A showcase for amateur effects with creature oddities and a framing plot that's more of an excuse to have lo fi creature battles than anything. Format: Blu-ray [Retromedia - limited re-release]. 1stTheme

October 13 [Ennio Morricone & Italian Horror Music Theme Night] (10 hours, 37 minutes watched)
85. What Have You Done to Solange? (1972, 105 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Nicely gorey without being bloody. I think part of the reason What Have You Done With Solange is so slow going is that there is only the hint of violence at first, it's a more tender giallo with "lovers" rather than anything especially blunt even as the murders take on a sexual aspect there are leering shots of showing schoolgirls but quick glimpses of the violence. Now a days horror films would start with an especially brutal hook, and not hint at it as this does here. The flash of a blade is much more poetic. Everyone in this film is so stylish, it makes me feel even more like a slob and elevates a lot of the scenes. Some of the premise seems like a zeitgeist for 70s. There's a strange mix of liberation and over exaggerated cautionary tale. Quit preaching, Solange. Overall I enjoyed Solange.Format: Blu-ray [Arrow]. Theme Subset
86. The Banana Splits Movie (2019, 89 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Condescending dancing and gore do not mix well and as the film goes on it's less and less likeable. The animatronics are so lifeless they never seem sinister, and the movie's science seems too far out. Using real life earnest children's characters seems shameless (a legit Five Nights At Freddy's movie might have been more interesting). There are explosions of blood but they so abrupt it's without tension and even joyless by bloodletting standards (the void characters probably also muck up this). Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st
87. Like Me (2017, 82 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Colorful and strange thriller that seems more surreal and deeper than some vapid commentary on social media; despite the trippy imagery it largely avoids cheap thrills and instead is a slow burn a road trip movie with Larry Fessenden and a young angry/curious girl going nowhere in particular. Not sure if amoral characters are just more blunt/honest seeming or if the whole things ends up being a trashy and hollow show. Format: Digital (Vudu). 1st
88. Hideaway (1995, 106 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Twisted premise from the under rated Dean Koontz, with Jeremy Sisto killing it... as a killer and Jeff Goldblum being himself as an everyman forced to watch and know. The mystic elements here are are silly and support the semi-serious film well. I'd seen this sort of premise somewhere else and not sure which came first. There is some nicely dated 90s stuff like the spiritual aspects, Alicia Silverstone, and a corny 'satanist' theme (which weakens the script with an 'oh no it's the evil metal heads' ploy) but it's fast paced and stylish enough to overcome some pitfalls like the ending being telegraphed so far ahead. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
89. Bus Party to Hell (2017, 81 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ I enjoyed some of Rolfe Kanefsky's Black Room, a crazy sleazy cartoonish film so this looked like a nice throwaway - it's got it's own glam rock style theme song and Tara Reid fighting zombies (for some reason) but never as fun or spirited as I'd have liked. It's like a Hills Have Eye Homage with milf biker chicks instead of hillbillies and there's lots of skin but it's all so corny. The end is a bit better and stands out as being different but still overall meh. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
90. Bird With the Crystal Plumage (1970, 96 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ I enjoyed Bird With a Crystal Plumage. It'd been long enough since I'd seen it last I forgot many of the twists. The stylized murder mystery often keeps your guessing and the villain is someone so unusual.Format: Digital (Vudu) Theme Subset
91. Deadcon (2019, 78 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Despite ham fisted social media allusions and some obnoxious characters I enjoyed this more than I expected because a haunted hotel room is treated is a casual but sinister way, it was dumb fun but I'm not sure what about it worked so well for me and could see the flaws (unlikable characters, influencer culture, etc).Format: Digital (Vudu) Theme 1st

October 14 [John Saxon Theme Night] (12 hours, 45 minutes watched)
92. Black Christmas (1974, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ Black Christmas is a great film with it's use of killer point of view perspective and irony - the sense of invisibility at what would seem to be the most visible time of the year with it's Christmas lights and togetherness (which is a great theme contrast). I love how mysterious the killer and his motives seem and logical attempts to puzzle out what is going on leads to some convincing plot twists. These obscene calls do not play around and even if some elements feel overly familiar Black Christmas masters the art.Format: Blu-ray [Scream Factory]. Theme Subset
93. Black Christmas (2006, 95 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Trashes an epic original film - the killer is laboriously explained (down to groan worthy trashy flashbacks), implausibly eccentric, and yellow skinned (?). Remake 2006 is more mean spirited than tense (I do like the cookie scene though). Waste of high production values. Format: Digital [Vudu].
94. Black Christmas (2019, 92 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ smart playing on social issues but stretches too much to be a metaphor - it's a good conversation but seems dogged and distrated by message although I do like the too little too late finale. Format: Digital UHD[Vudu].
95. The Sect (1991, 117 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Nonsensical and stylish with hallucinatory imagery and cool hooks moving along a plot that doesn't ever quite make sense.Format: Blu-ray [Scorpion Releasing, limited edition]. 1st
96. Beast From 20,000 Fathoms (1953, 80 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Prehistoric creature feature with wonderful stop motion effects and more of a mystery than one might expect. It's a routine enough riff on King Kong with a few choice scenes but more reminded me how cool, exotic, and awesome Kong was decades earlier. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
97. From Dusk Till Dawn (1996, 108 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰Kinetic all over the place heist vampire family drama with lots of energy and gruesome tit vampires. Some of the humor is a miss and it's confusing that Cheech plays three different characters but those things probably contribute more to the light heartedness that make this film great. Format: Digital [Vudu]. Theme
98. 1BR (2019, 90 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Didn't live up to the hype - at times tense but unconvincing plot stretches credibility (not far out enough to be fun, too dramatic but nonsensical) and distracted me and an ending straight out of another film didn't do much to redeem it. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
99. Housewife (1986, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ What did I just watch and when can I watch it again? The score is hypnotic and memorable as are some of the visuals. Takes a dream logic approach that either is superficial but cool looking or has more depth that I need to rewatch to soak up themes and patterns more. Dizzingly stylish. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st

October 15 [Cheesy 80s Theme Night] (13 hours, 50 minutes watched)
100. Ghost Keeper (1982, 89 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Dated but effectively creepy with characters that aren't scary but filmed with artisty enough to frame them as off putting and spooky. Format: Blu-ray [Code Red]. Theme
101. The Undertaker (1988, 89 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Really enjoyed Joe Spinell in The Last Horror Film but he couldn't really save this one - the script seemed blah depending too mnuch on a generic enough Undertaker character. He rants and he obsesses and that's ok but it's not in the same caliber as Spinell's other works. Format: Blu-ray [Vinegar Syndrome slipcover]. 1st Theme
102. Frightmare [aka The Horror Star] (1983, 86 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Fascinating mash of older legacy horror tropes shoe horned into a more 80s slasher pattern that results in a cool meta villain but perhaps misses some on capitalizing on the meta satire of celebrity worship, horror obsession, and other film fan stuff it first seemed pointed at. The villain has a knowing preachy 'crypt keeper' style vibe I loved. Format: Blu-ray [Vinegar Syndrome]. 1st Theme
103. Zombie High (1987, 93 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Low hanging fruit of social/social satire aside it's a unique gruesome conspiracy zombie thriller nicely dated with good pacing. The 'smart zombie' twist works and adds a lot of depth to the subgenre here looking at extremes of power mongering and class struggles in a way that probably doesn't say more more than surface level but is a fun underdog story. Format: Blu-ray [Scream Factory].1st Theme
104. Observance (2015, 87 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Slow and confusing with some decent visuals and what I think is an interesting analogy for grief and emotional distance but too distant and ambiguous. I wanted to like Observance more than I did but may need to rewatch it because some might have gone over my head. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st
105. Spookies (1986, 85 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Overall I liked Spookies more than I expected. There is an admirable dedication to 'spooky' 'Halloween' tropes above all and I appreciate their dogged commitment to horror elements even when the film is a dumpster fire of bad acting and inconsistencies. I thought the intro with the weird kid who was a ghoul kid or maybe not had a birthday was odd enough to seem interesting in a dumb comedy way, the alien/creature in the stairwell, the spider woman, mini-reaper... and some of the effects were gnarly, like under the surface is an interesting horror comedy. Hmm... just when you thought you'd seen everything - some scenes are proof they were not even trying for some of it. The obvious differences in cut in material is an interesting exercise in editing; it's horrible but hypnotic and funny in a way that must have been intentionally bad. Sometimes I end up assuming bad films are being meta when they're not. Format: Digital [Youtube].1st Theme Subset
106. Super Dark Times (2017, 103 minutes) ★★★★★★★★★✰ Brilliantly evokes coming of age elements into a slasher that feels personal by making us empathize and 'have fun' with the characters before things slowly elevate. The confusion of everyone and earnest exploration of romance and school all comes together well and gel with paranoia and death in a way that makes everyone look seemingly innocent. SDT flirts with sinister before it goes full dark is a well paced and ambiguous manner to hook us on the unlikely and make us face an evil in these kids like we grew up with. Format: Digital [Vudu]. Theme
107. Dreamscape (1984, 99 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Over ambitious biting off my it can chew with presidential dream assassinations, serial killers, snake people, etc with not enough energy to contain things. Dennis Quaid seems more smug than relatable and there's a strangely theatrical low energy to the acting that clashes with the wtf surreal plot rather than elevating it (actors being too serious for a snake man chasing them). Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
108. Destroyer (1984, 99 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Hulking body builder slasher with a gritty prison setting and Anthony Perkins - is a watchable b-movie but fails to live up to the height inherit to a setup like (we have seen Perkins alone can be gold). It's campy and committed with a surprising amount of twists for such a pulpy film with a simple visual style.Format: Blu-ray [Scream Factory]. 1st Theme

October 16 [1995 / 1970 / 1945 / 1920 Anniersary Theme Night] (8 hours, 30 minutes watched)
109. The Dwelling (2016, 85 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ There are far too many films about killer beds and this one doesn't seem to even try; the sex club setting is awkward from the start and killings matter of fact (each proceeding one another in brief fashion with occasional visual flair but never enough gore or style to redeem the film). We never really 'know' the characters. The plot structure has a time loop which is a tad interesting but it leads to an ending that doesn't make sense (and lacks the style necessary to be dreamy/scary). Format: Digital [Vudu]. Theme Subset
110. Roommate Wanted (2015, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Zig zags between slapstick cartoonish and mean spirited occasionally straddling a perfectly tense line between the two with a prolonged slow burn two person rivalry that's occasionally grating and occasionally thriller. The actresses sizzling job and sometimes seem too vapid (which is when it's more cartoonish) but somewhere it comes together. Format: Digital [Vudu]. Theme Subset
111. Out of the Dark (1995, 86 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Out of the Dark has a good visual style with some decent camera work but needs more structure to hang on. It’s fast paced and was a nice more casual ‘break’ film (refreshingly less dark/mean) with humor often so dumb but occasionally laugh out loud. The slapstick fantasy comedy was fun but so hit and miss - when it was bad it was really bad. I remember seeing Out of the Dark before and think I enjoyed it more the first time. Format: Digital [Prime]. 1st Theme Subset
112. The Body Snatcher (1945, 78 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ A horror of moral conflicts with weighty themes and chilling performances - some elements seem surprisingly meta. Format: Digital [Thanks to Alyxstarr]. Theme Subset
113. The Cabinet of Dr Caligari [Commentary by film historian David Kalat] (1920, 76 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Caligari is a fascinating film that I wish I could experience more in it's time - watching it now I think it looks cool and antique and fascinating that everyone involved might be dead so what life they must have lived (not the least of which is preserved as a snapshot here). It's unquestionably artistic with a far out interesting story and surreal set design with a seemingly timeless cool sleepwalking hook... the framing device element of 'what is real' is excellent but I feel like there's a lot of commentary I cannot 'get.' I guess the value of 'art' is being able to project whatever meaning you relate to on it - but that's why Caligari we perceive today may not be the Caligari that was filmed. I do not think the film makers intended Caligari to mimic and represent Trump; which is beyond bizarre and prophetic. Commentary was a good listen with a lot of back story and analysis of the film, there's a bit much debating which dead person gets credit for which artistic choices (duller in the middle) but... the beginning and end are especially strong (the last 20 minutes of commentary are interesting passionate dissection of the ending).Format: Digital [Thanks to Alyxstarr]. 1st Theme Subset
114. Driven (2019, 90 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Ambitious mostly two person film with likeable charasmatic characters but a script so dull they cannot save what feels like watching two people drive around talk about make believe fantasy fluff and joke about how one person's grandfather was an 'epic slut' (apparently a major plot point). Credit for trying something different on a low budget but ultimately feels aimless fetch quest heavy with plot points that depend on in film mystic fantasy more than logic or convincing plot development. Format: ???. 1st Theme
115. The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018, 86 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Sometimes I enjoy PG13 commerical studio films to the point I consider them a guilty pleasure (Possession, Wish Upon, Ouija 2, etc). Here I was reminded of too many other better movies - it's like someone put Autopsy of Jane Doe, Last Exorcism, and some odds/ends into a blender. Like the grey obvious stage background here the film is mostly a lifeless affair with a good idea that plays it too safe. Format: Digital [Vudu UHD]. 1st Theme

October 17 [Video Store / Lightening Video Theme Night] (8 hours, 35 minutes watched)
116. Red Letter Day (2019, 76 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ The premise is just subtle enough to possibly work - people get letters suggesting they kill a specific neighbor matched up who might also kill them is stupid but there's enough element of 'well maybe the crazy neighbor will take it serious...' that it works as a low key lampoon of social isolation and mop economic/political division. There's also repeated awkward commentary about social media that doesn't gel and feels heavy handed. It tanks too much towards implausible and doesn't recover with Purge-lite small scale suburban squabbles. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme
117. Nightmare Weekend (1986, 86 minutes) ★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Strange sleazy premise that's less lurid than one might expect but more aimless with strange metal balls, bizarre green haired puppets, and 80s technology run amok. It's like they made a film of filler. Format: Blu-ray [Vinegar Syndrome]. 1st Theme
118. The Death King [Der Todesking] (1990, 80 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Somber low key death stories that are artistically shot but feel dated in our modern age of mass shootings and news media frenzy. Aside from some corpse decomposition effects there's not as much gore or edgy commentary from the director of the much more rebellious Nekromantik. Format: Blu-ray [Cult Epics]. 1st Theme
119. The Masque of the Red Death (1964, 89 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Vincent Price is a master here carrying the film, the red death is wonderfully poetic but a lot of the added on subplot with Satanism, torturing villagers, etc really over exaggerates the elements I remember from Poe's story - enjoyable film but not one for subtlety (literally scene has an man dressed as an ape on fire). Format: Blu-ray [Scream Factory].
120. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993, 76 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ My favorite monsters are the three vampires and the lake creature, but they change nearly every time I watch this. Each scene is crammed with subtle details in wonderful stop motion animation that occassionally veers towards too eccentric with over the top sing songy numbers but fast paced and nonstop enough to be entertaining without overstaying. Format: Digital [Vudu].
121. Ghost Killers Vs Bloody Mary (2018, 108 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Covered in blood stupid humor is a lot more disturbing and funny. The kinetic gorey frenzy is more fun than it should be with jokes often obnoxious (there is a masturbating fetus) but rarely trying too hard often moving to the next gross out slapstick shoot out horror fest. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st

October 18 [Stuart Gordon Memorial Theme Night] (12 hours, 17 minutes watched)
122. Dagon (2001, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★★★★✰ I love the unusual aquatic ploy of Dagon, and while it's not subtle the atmosphere and moodiness reigns supreme countering some of the more cartoonish elements. Sly bookend segments. The 'good natured' Xenophobia of not being sure what's naturally foreign or what's unusual because of evil works well. One character is embelamtic of what works best about Dagon, perfectly straddling the good natured and the strange in a human sympathetic way while still seeming a bit sinister. The strange existential crisis of Dagon is a rich theme that I'm still not sure what to make of.Format: Blu-ray [Vestron]. Theme Subset
123. Body Snatchers (1993, 87 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Environmental and military commentary is slow going at first taking pot shots at low hanging fruit themes; there's a decidedly 90s vibe with angst and empowered heroine female. Here the body snatching is more quesy and simmers to a frantic pitch with larger scale before an ending that feels a bit abrupt. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme
124. Snatchers (2019, 96 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Never enough sex monsters with their hybrid of action comedy and horror. The two leads are witty and have chemistry and the requisite gore is on display but something about it didn't land with me. I think that the comedy and horror balance was too skewed towards comedy it all felt so disposable. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
125. Monstrous (2020, 87 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Surprising film using bigfoot as a framing device for a slow burn lesbian thriller whodunit about a love affair that's either liberating or devious and teeter totters between the two. There's a lot going on with the plot but despite low budget it's tense and unusual. My wife told me it looked like a 'softcore' 'late night HBO film' (in terms of acting) but I thought there was more to it. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
126. The Church (1989, 102 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Moody abstract thriller with gothic cathedral that's a wonder to look at and even though I'm not quite sure what this was about it was just crazy enough to get by but filled with long slow times of characters walking aroind a cavernous church. Format: Blu-ray [Scorpion Releasing limited edition].
127. A Field in England (2013, 90 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Beautiful looking black and white photography with a cool old England setting that fails to live up to the hype - the ensemble of character does a decent jump but the script is too psychedelic to make much sense digging into mysticism as story line to a point it's not convincing and sometimes confusing. There are some weird effects and obvious the film makers had fun with this but it's not very accessible even as an appealing puzzle. I could look at pilgrims walking slow motion through wind blown wheat grass shooting old guns and grimacing all day but the substance feels short.Format: Blu-ray [Alamo Drafthouse]. 1st
128. Out of the Dark (1988, 89 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Whodunit with a plastic clown killer versus phone sex operators is filled with red herrings and clueless police. It's gonzo enough that it's more fun than I expected with giallo elements. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
129. Awoken (2019, 88 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Pseudo scientists go rogue with a main character that struggles to cure a family insomnia illness that perhaps killed her parents, it's a setup so neatly tied up in the absurd it should not work but does by being low key enough with decent acting. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st

October 19 [Stormy Night Theme Night] (12 hours, 15 minutes watched)
130. The Drone (2019, 82 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ From the director of better than expected Zombeavers comes a serial killer drone, which is more powerful than any drone I'd seen and basically a rip off of Child's Play in drone form. It's slow going and gets a too little too late but is a decent casual popcorn thriller with no pretense of suspense and more focus on drone antics and semi-comedy. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme
131. Killing God (2017, 92 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Dark humor while moral conflict and philosphy surface level in an antagonistic G-d who proves to be an excellent semi-villain in a suspense thriller. There's some bickering between a married couple but from seemingly obnoxious comedic elements from deeper themes about worth of life and preservation of romantic relationships in an end time (or not end time).Format: Digital [Prime]. 1st Theme
132. Fender Bender (2016, 91 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Serial killer in the house flick with some questionable acting and popcorn fluff - a costume that's more corny than scary and a premise that's interesting but never gets as brutal as maybe it should (it's like a low key slasher rather than a kinetic blood bath - talking rather than screaming).Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme
133. Gretel & Hansel (2020, 87 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Might be Oz Perkins' best film yet. Perkins is very good at mood and atmosphere and that's something that's sorely lacking in a lot of horror films these days. Alice Krige (aka Borg Queen) was very good and solid acting all around.Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme
134. Cruel Summer (2016, 80 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Mean spirited true crime murder story - the kind of seething film that's believable but also horrible to watch offering little insight into the spectical of mean spirited crime. It's a bit slow, which I think is an effort to make us bond with the killers, and some of the acting is off with a intellectually disabled portrayal a bit hammy but never the less there's cruelty and it's not fun which I guess it good if bleak intensity is your thing but there are still better examples of this stuff (like Girl Next Door). Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
135. The Bad Batch (2016, 115 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Respect for the dystopian neo-Barbarian cannibal wasteland vibe attempted here but there's not much plot other than the absurdity of the make believe situation and it's a slow simmer pitch throughout with deus ex machina like mystical healing, etc that robs some of the potential here. A big step down from the epic Girls Walks Home Alone at Night. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
136. Head Count (2018, 90 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Cliche creature film that spends way too much time getting set up and staging awkward 'rules' to deliver a predictable outcome. A lot of the stagings is after the fact 'hey wasn't there another person here' or 'wait - there are 5 of us here' stuff that's less hooked on tension and build up and more reactive leaving a sense that I should rewind to experience it better and follow the out of the ordinary element (maybe it would have clever details if picked apart after a reveal?). Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
137. Daybreaker (2009, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Fantastic scifi dystopian film with vampire heist elements and a lot of pseudo-science but leading to some cool visuals and upbeat fast pacing.Format: Digital [Vudu UHD]. 1st

October 20 [Vampire Theme Night] (12 hours, 44 minutes watched)
138. Thirst (2009, 134 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ There's a lot going on in Thirst. At first I thought it was a serviceable safe vampire film with the unusual twist of a priest being the vampire then I was curious by how quickly he shed his piousness for wanton sexual bloodlust - but that was only the beginning. Moral ambiguity was a centerpiece of the film but sometimes didn't gel. The ending was heartfelt and wonderful, a satisfying conclusion. Thirst manages to balance in humor well. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme Subset
139. The Lake Vampire (2018, 102 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Long winded but with an interesting twist on vampires and the eternal nature of evil that might justify the endless interview and flashbacks of much of the film. Sublet character character interactions that feel deeper and a neat but implausible twist ending. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme
140. Crucible of the Vampire (2019, 96 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Sometimes smart, sometimes campy vampire film with necromancy, period flashbacks, vampires with knifes, and conflicted gardeners. I like it, then disliked it, then liked it - at it's best inspiring gothic timeless vampire horror and at it's worst seeming very rooted in researching and explaining a 'crucible' or showcasing a lukewarm lead actress. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme
141. Mary Mary Bloody Mary (1975, 91 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Stylish dramatic but slow paced. The Mary person is a mix of sympathetic and sinister. Some of the

[spoiler]is nicely updated with things like sleeping pills. Format: Blu-ray [Code Red limited edition]. 1st Theme
142. Chimeres (2013, 80 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Beginning is routine and decent but the last half is fast paced, energetic, and feels gritty. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme
143. Vampire Clay (2017, 80 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Decent oddity aligned with today's vampire theme. I was expecting something obnoxiously weird and low budget like a bad Troma but it was surprisingly good with just the right amount of cheesy and tense with some cool special effects and a strange gnarly idea. Format: Digital [Prime]. 1st Theme
144. Coraline (2019, 100 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ My 9 year old son wanted to watch this one and couldn't say no - it's a whimsical fantasy horror steeped in atmosphere with a cool parallel universe plot that challenges our routine. Format: Digital [Prime].
145. The Monster Club (1981, 104 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Pending. Format: Blu-ray [Scorpion Releasing limited edition]. 1st Theme
146. Invasion of the Blood Farmers (1981, 77 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Low budge with a cool hook but meandering and cheesy in execution - occassionally so bad it's good but often frustrating. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme

October 21 [New York Theme Night] (10 hours, 28 minutes watched)
147. Friday the 13th VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989, 100 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Watching this standalone was more decent than I remember feeling it was after marathon of Friday the 13th films. The effects seem moderm and zombie Jason is the best Jason. They should have done more with the New York setting but the sewer segment is a cool one. Format: Digital [Vudu]. Theme
148. New York Ripper (1972, 85 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ I cannot think of a more prime zeitgeist to revisit The Ripper than 70s-80s New York, that seems like brilliant staging. The kills are excellent gorey fun. New York Ripper is one of Fulci's best film (it seems fresher and more focused than a lot of his other stuff, even though I am a fan). Fulci makes a cameo as the police chief. The UHD disc looks excellent - I feel like I could smell the polyester. Format: UHD Disc [Blue Underground]. Theme Subset
149. The Green Inferno (2013, 100 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Interesting then it dive bombs into stupid; Eli Roth is inconsistent for me even within the same film it goes from being tense to cartoonish with a startling off brand of humor. The natives looked fantastically gorey with red paint and there is some good tension then, for example, comes a marijuana munchies awkward plot device so groan worthy and self destructive it derails. The 'horror' elements might be the weakest part of the film after some sizzling political thriller first third. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme
150. Agony (2017, 83 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Hallucinatory cryptic family mystery with a lot of ambiguity and some mindtrip imagery that doesn't always work. I liked it's theme introduced at the start with the quote "Illness, insanity, and death are the black angels that kept watch over my cradle and accompanied all my life" (Edvard Munch). I interpreted it as a metaphor for genetic mental/physical illness and thought it was good from that perspective but could also see how it might be too aimless and cryptic. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
151. We Summon the Darkness (2020, 92 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Fun rock n roll film that subverts expectations and had fast pacing told from a perspective that seems unusual (not a hero or confused gang of kids like many other films). Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
152. Ryde (2016, 84 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Stylish ride with a serial killer told mostly from his perspective with slasher style kills better than it's silly name and routine premise lets on. Some of the ending is a letdown but worth the ryde. The stylish night ride scenes help mood and the killer is focused enough that it works much better than I expected. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
153. Brain Damage (1988, 84 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ One of Henelotter's best films with an mupphet brain slug metaphor for addiction and a memorable ending. It's not as fun as some of Henelotter's other films (no exploding hookers or dancing mutants here) but it sheds blood and sleaze with purpose and direction of it's anti-drug commentary. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st

October 22 [Dogs / Bullying / Scarecrows Mix/Match Theme Night] (15 hours, 32 minutes watched)
154. The Shining (1980, 144 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Kubrick's camerawork zooming down halls or garden mazes is kinetic and theatric with a great setting and creepy scares. Shining's teeter tottering balance of psychological and phantasm, scarcely revealing which is which, is part of what made it great and the odd mind communication stuff seemed teasingly eerie/unexplained.Format: Digital [Vudu UHD].
155. Doctor Sleep [Director's Cut] (2019, 180 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰Mike Flanagan has a flair for the visual and Doctor Sleep holds up wonderfully despite some gutsy content. A very different approach from the first to a degree that's disorienting. Well staged but about mid-way through many of the supporting characters disappear and the film gets more focused but also loses some of it's magic. The references to the original mostly felt redundant. Format: Digital [Vudu UHD]. 1st Theme Subset
156. Suspension (2015, 87 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Predictable slasher with staggering between cartoonish fantasy gore and teen angst segments. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme
157. Another Me (2019, 86 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Routine premise we've seen elsewhere before but artistically shot and Sophie Turner does a good job of selling her frustration. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st Theme
158. The Witch Who Came From the Sea (1976, 83 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Lurid premise with a strangely aloof anti-heroine who is unbalanced but forces us to see her perspective which never quite adds up beyond being sensational, it's sleazy and angry and nonsense with a queasy focus on child abuse more odd than alarming. Format: Blu-ray [Arrow]. 1st
159. Even Lambs Have Teeth (2015, 79 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Lurid and corny taking an overly casual approach to traffiking to jusify cartoonish revenge that's more silly than it should be but has a tone that's at odds with how heinous traffiking seems. Content is never too gross or intense but also never really has much gravity, it's got a strange low production value that helps it from seeming too serious (which helps the film balance it's more action comedy tone). Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
160. Scarecrow (2013, 87 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Made for tv scarecrow film with better than expected creature but a lot of down time and rarely feels tense given the casual acting, daytime setting, and budget. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
161. Porno (2019, 98 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Awkward film more interested in the bizarre over exaggerated straight edge internal conflict or repressed homosexuality of a character than demons with hamfisted over exaggerated religious subplot that takes away from the crazy porn demon the marketing promises. Stages characters then mocks the characters which are overly staged to be made fun of plus a demon sometimes shows up, which is cool when it happens. To it's benefit it never as cartoonish as it could be but there are times it feels too restrained with horror gore/sleaze/carnage that might have made it more fun rather than having whiny kids having drama about if they should smoke cigarettes or be gay (maybe this would have been edgy a decade ago?). Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st
162. Ratpocalypse (2015, 88 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Corny braindead film about crooked politicians turning into horrible CGI rats then getting mad as Casper Van Dien with what seems like something that started as satire then just gets overly long and tedious. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st

October 23 [Drive-In Theme Night - Blood / Beast / Boobs] (7 hours, 52 minutes watched)
163. Blood Quantum (2019, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Smart script with generous gore and gutsy ambition that works well despite some occasionally amateurish acting. It's chaotic and heartfelt giving a blood pumping freshness to a often stale zombie subgenre. Looking up Blood Quantum issues with Native Americans I didn't understand before (which hit on eugenics, etc) the subtext commentary here seems ripe. Format: Digital [Shudder].1st Theme
164. Beast (2017, 107 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Angsty teen rebel with her damaged psyche is attracted to a maybe or not serial killer in a moody romantic thriller that is a bit overstuffed with some of the family drama subplot but it so ambiguous and morally conflicted that it simmers. The characters all seem to embrace imperfection and feel real while also struggling with this imperfection - they're more complicated but relatable. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
165. The Dawnseeker (2018, 81 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Poor man's predator with heart and style that despite an obvious low budget has gusto and energy enough to make it fun even if it's got a cheap looking rubber practical effects alien. It's artistically shot with panning overhead shots and handled seriously, well paced, and actors seem fully committed. No bail out humor or meta attempts to disguise the good and bad of it's full on budget sci fi action horror. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
166. Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016, 99 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Period horror with a distracting 70s vibe and a lot stuffed into the plot - 2 romantic subplots, dead dad and dead wife subplots, charlatans, bullying, there's even nazi references, etc - nevermind the main plot or supernatural. There are some cool visuals and twists but nothing that ever feels like it raises above clicheWatched this with my kids, the 9 year old seemed to get bored quickly. Format: Digital [Vudu].
167. Blackenstein (1973, 87 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Campy dated horror with scenic time capsule appeal but slow on the horror and sleaze more silly and meandering than engaging but probably what one might expect from a 70s film called Blackenstein. Format: Digital [Vudu].

October 24 [European Theme Nigh] (8 hours, 55 minutes watched)
168. Under the Skin (2013, 109 minutes) ★★★★★★★★½✰ Great film. I'd seen it before and as cryptic as it is I usually just enjoy it as a mood piece. There's no reason for some of the dark pool visuals but it sure does look cool and the in your face sexuality of it is so explicit it feels like it's challenging our own sexuality. Adam Pearson, the disfigured man, was inspired casting and even if he doesn't end up much different than the other men his appearance feels like it's making a statement (but I'm not sure there's a thesis so much as direct visuals so much as a void). Johansson is a specimen, but I appreciate that here she is not a toned 'Black Widow' but a (relatively) plump natural seeming woman - which might fit any themes of dispelling pretenses and honest intimacy. Format: Digital [Vudu].Theme Subset
169. Angelica (2017, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Victorian horror with an unusual CGI specter that left me wondering more about what I had seen and what it represents. I liked the romantic focus here and there was a good sense of frustration even making the husband seem like a mild mannered caring villain who might not be a villain. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
170. Scherzo Diabolico (2015, 91 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Morbid nihilist office comedy horror which feels like a letdown from Adrián García Bogliano after his excellent previous films Here Comes the Devil and Late Phases upped the ante for modern internaitonal horror. It's a clever idea and could not have ended differently but the ending is as unconvincing and out of the blue as it is twisted - I didn't understand it and yet it felt like the last 25 minutes could have been a film in itself (too fast). Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
171. Hush (2016, 82 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ One of Mike Flanagan's better films (behind Absentia and Gerald's Game) - tense elevating slasher tropes but also with a subtle meta element that give the film depth and multiple interpretations beyond the visceral.Format: Digital [Netflix].
172. Follow (2015, 74 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Trippy film that doesn't always make sense seemingly more interested in playing off a hook of what to do with the death of a loved one; here in explicit gorey mystery that takes turns more schlocky than impactful dimming from a great opening third to a meh conclusion. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st
173. Fascination (1979, 81 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Gorey blood fetishism plot with bandits, scythes, and wanton ladies - like many of Rollins films the plot doesn't quite add up but the leering views of demented and thirsty women gives a more immediate sense of strange horror than dialog or script might. I didn't enjoy this as much as I had in the past. Format: Blu-ray [Redemption / Kino Lorber].

October 25 [Subjective Camera Theme Nigh] (11 hours, 39 minutes watched)
174. I Am Alone (2015, 88 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ There's a nature survival challenge docudrama and a zombie apocalyse but here the channel stays on the docudrama where zombies occasionally show up to elevate how frustrated and alone out nature guide is - that it's all been drama until this time. The effects are cheap and the subjective point of view camera limited. I was hoping for an action film with subjective camera low budget zombie gore and this felt more like a whimper or off camera romantic death and long winded pseudoscience banter. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st
175. Color Out of Space (2019, 111 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Excellent visuals; the pink hue of the meteorite is wonderful and strange. The slow transformation of the land and creatures hypnotically sizzles and makes the film feel more like an odyssey than a snapshot (large scale stuff). The emphasis on nature itself is deep and creepy from tying in juvenile misguided wiccan rituals to alpacas to the life cycle of water. The use of special effects here is more innovative than usual and I appreciate that more of them seem practical; the whole story hangs on the effects and they work great but at times the dizzing pink hues are so over the top. Nicolas Cage is often hammy in this slow burn abstract horror film - he is off putting at first but then eventually comes together. COoS was a wild ride, I'm still trying to understand the ending. The metaphysics sound cool and probably have more to it; I'll have to rewatch COoS soon. Format: UHD Disc [RLJ].1st Theme Subset
176. You Might Be the Killer (2018, 92 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Fun referential slasher with comedy that is sometimes distracting from the horror but brings enough now to a slasher genre in need of innovation, which I think it a point of the film by tasking slasher tropes and mocking them as we experience the horror. At times too tongue in cheek (parts could have been more serious/tense) and pandering (low hanging fruit of horror slashers). Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
177. Sweetheart (2019, 82 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Starts as a study of ambiguity with a we don't know what is happening first half that never over explains itself until delivering in it's second half with a strange and fantastic premise. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st
178. The Dark Tapes (2018, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Found footage anthology film that doesn't waste time with framing devices and shows taped segments that are low budget creepy with smart scripts overambitious for what seems like an indie budget and talent can totally pull off (in one scene there is an obviously fake ghoul distracting from a story that is metaphysical and clever that sticks with you in a twist but that ghoul was so cheap you need to work around it first). I loved The Dark Tapes and admire it's low budget effects but it didn't always meld together for me. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
179. To Let (2006, 69 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Expected a lot from this one by Jaume Balagueró (of [Rec] fame) - it's got a gnarly relatable premise that goes for the gusto and is fully committed to it's premise (not wasting time on subplot of even a lot of buildup). There's a lot of running through unimpressive dark hallways and gritty stairs that make for a less than scenic gritty film sold more by the characters than the setting with an imminently creepy villain. I didn't like the ending. Format: Digital [Vudu].Theme
180. Temple (2017, 78 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Skimps too much on the buildup with a cool framing device and some exotic flair but ending in "frights" that seemed fleeting, overly familiar, and abrupt. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st
181. Room for Rent (2019, 81 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Lin Shaye is equal parts hammy and inspired here in a script that does not deserve her. It's slow going with the Lin Shay character being both cartoonish and cringy but also despite the writing coming out decent in the execution. I feel like we've seen other roommate/stalker films better set up than this. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st

October 26 [Adaptations Theme Nigh] (10 hours, 50 minutes watched)
182. Wolfen (1981, 115 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Albert Finney is great as the detective in a mystic standoff the film hangs around - there's perhaps too much extra stuff surrounding this but the dramatic acting and direction help carry the film a lot further than the Wolfen premise does. It's nice to see a horror film that treats both sides with respect and perspective, the film romanticizes as it vilifies. Point of view segments were a good gag but the dated distortion of it got old quick. Some chilling elements are dropped by dialogue more than they are show. New York is probably not the best example of the theme and some of the mysticism feels dated now. Format: Digital [YouTube HD, purchase].1st Theme Subset
183. Bad Kids Go to Hell (2013, 93 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Fast paced cartoonish '10 little indians' style school comedy with Breakfast Club plot but insert a killer. Zig zagging between one Saturday morning detention painted red and the high school antics that lead these kids to detention (often relating to their demise or tying into a framing horror story) there's not much down time. Nail guns, indian spirits, hatchets, etc full of a good time. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
184. Bad Kids of Crestview Academy (2017, 100 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Formulaic from the first Bad Kids Go to Hell film of a Satursday morning detention at elite prep school with gorey murder as a staging for school antics flashing between a fateful party gone wrong and murder chase scenes through abandoned school hallways. Builds some on the first but it's less twisty with a disappointing conclusion. Format: Digital [Prime].1st Theme Subset
185. Nightmare Beach (1988, 90 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Horror movies definitely need more bikers. The motorcycle killer is pretty sleek and I wish he had popped up a bit more, it seems like a neat update to the headless horseman vibe. There's not a lot of red herrings here but it's stylish and silly and the world needs more Spring Break beach horror. Format: Digital [Thanks to Alyxstarr].1st Theme Subset
186. Body (2015, 75 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Morally bankrupt characters caught in a moral stalemate more ridiculous than it is tense despite some clever unexpected twists. It's abitious for a small scale film with three-ish characters sharing screentime and I wanted to like it more than I did (because characters weren't compelling). Format: Digital [Vudu].1st
187. Voices From Beyond (1991, 91 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ I enjoyed Voices From Beyond more than I remember - it's a different twist with a dead character encouraging an investigation into his demise before he rots away. It alternates between surreal and hammy with a method of death that's more silly that creepy but if you don't take it too seriously there plot structure is compelling and different. Format: Blu-ray [Code Red].1st
188. The Color Out of Space (2010, 86 minutes) ★½✰ After seeing Richard Stanley's new version I was curious to see another adaptation - this one set in Germany near the end of World War 2 in black and white with obviously lower production values. It's gritty and told more in retrospective interviews. Format: Blu-ray [Brink Releasing limited edition].1st Theme

October 27 [Anthology Theme Nigh] (13 hours, 23 minutes watched)
189. Books of Blood (2020, 107 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ I hope I've made it in time to caution people against Hulu's new Books of Blood anthology film. The original Cliver Barker text is a classic of horror literature but the new anthology film is laboriously dramatic and due to a dud of a first (framing) story feels more meandering than scary or intense. Production values aren't strong to a fault with some CGI specters feeling especially 'made for tv' rather than a mirror for the intense mad stories we know Barker has on hand. Some of the twists are more implausible than eerie. It's cool the stories intertwine and at least one is faithful to the book but overall disappointing except to the degree it might bring people to the source material. Favorite segment: Psychic guy. Format: Digital [Hulu].1st Theme
190. Verotika (2019, 90 minutes) ★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ I’d heard it was bad but didn’t expect this – it’s hardly an anthology more filled with matter of fact imagery than stories with one out of three tales mostly leering at club dancers and a final one that’s a straight forward enough visual of a famous killer (no twists, no conflict – just a low budget gore show). Only the first segment shows any promise with it’s ridiculously stupid but creative spider idea that’s got a low of surreal stuff crammed into 30 minutes. Favorite segment: Spider. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
191. Creepshow 2 (1987, 92 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Delightfully cartoonish with some nice effects; I think I liked Creepshow 2 more than the first. The Raft and Hitchhikers are both very strong visuals thanks to Tom Savini and even The Store segment has a good comeuppance. An animated framing device is great too. Favorite segment: Hitchhiker Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
192. Hi-8 (2014, 99 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Lo fi anthology nostalgic tribute to shot on video film only with consistently decent segments. The framing device seemed choppy and not really frame worthy (no logical breaks or ties to other content) but was still good. Independent lo fifilm making. Favorite segment: Switchblade Insanity, Eat Your Heart Out. Format: Digital [Prime].1st Theme
193. Hi-Death (2014, 99 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Follow-up to Hi-8 is less enjoyable with some segments feeling overly long and hanging on ideas that are simpler. Here some of the material felt cheap rather than fun with for example a late night video rental store scene having a lot of buildup for a slight scare. Favorite segment: Cold Read. Format: Digital [Prime].1st Theme
194. Blood Clots (2020, 71 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Randomly searching Prime for 'horror anthology' and thought this had a clever gorey title plus looked like a cool platform for indie horror film makers. I did happen to start another film (Five Minutes to Midnight) which had one repeat so maybe lame they just crammed a bunch of shorts together (lower score for that). Favorite 'segment': Call of CharlieFormat: Digital [Prime].1st Theme
195. The Shelter (2015, 76 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Moody existential thriller draped in blue lighting and decently acted that seemed more wtf than scary but had a better center to frame the film around. The lead is cartoonishly 'macho' slamming whiskey, pumping ladies, and strutting down empty streets for the first 20 minutes - pacing is slow simmer and never really reaches burn intensity but has more depth than typical commericial jump scare gore kill horror.Format: Digital [Vudu].1st
196. Don't Kill It (2016, 83 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Clever premise with an explosive introduction then stalls out for way too long and seems to waste Dolph Lundgren with talky exposition. More campy than I remember and didn't seem to hold up as well. 'It' makes shrill shrieking sounds when on screen killing some of the tension. Format: Digital [Vudu].
197. Route 666 (2001, 86 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Fun popcorn film with a great cast and puply premise different enough to be fun (key word: pulp). Fast paced and makes good use of it's goofy terrors to corner characters without over revealing much. The desert road standoff environment is scenic and memorable. Format: Digital [Vudu].

October 28 [Ghost Theme Night] (10 hours, 22 minutes watched)
198. Ghost Stories (2017, 98 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Atmospheric with high production values and a teasing sense of foreboding walking us to the door of the supernatural for just a peak to savor and challenge the surrounding skepticism. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
199. Ghost Team [Unrated] (2016, 85 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Less fun than just mucking around an old house with some buddies would be offering little that seems to really exploit the fantasy possible with film and instead crashing as a stale loser bromance that's rarely funny. A cute idea for want of a better more fun script. There's a twist that's a bit interesting but not worth the sit through. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st 1st Theme
200. The Possession of Michael King (2014, 83 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Dark film with an angry single dad challenging the unknown experimenting in enough occult antics with a curiosity that eventually turns darker and draws out a progressive more and more bloody lurid possession savoring the middle group of wtf confusion. Makes good use of cliche possession tropes never re-inventing the wheel but well paced and ironic/suspenseful. Format: Digital [Vudu]. Theme
201. Ghost Team One (2013, 84 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Ranchy low brow paranormal sex comedy that's relentlessly stupid enough to be occasionally funny but has a lot of shacky camera and bickering 'bros' to be as obnoxious as it is funny. (No relation to [just] Ghost Team film)Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
202. Judas Ghost (2013, 76 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Paranormal investigators easing through a training video find more than they expected. The training video format is a great introduction allowing for some explanation and variety (different clips) without seeming awkward. Much better than I expected with emphasis on crazy paranormal twists and out of the blue paranormal mysteries. Despite a 'meh' last segment it was a blast overall, a mystical horror indie film that delivers. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
203. Terrified (2017, 87 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ Re-watching Terrified now I'm left wondering more about the premise. I seems like there's an implied puzzle with plumbing, magnets, and a deeper metaphysical bend. I love the effects, especially eerie stuff but with a dose of sly dark humor (sometimes over the top - funny without being bad/distracting) - there's a lot of great visuals in Terrified. I was glad to see this picked as a subset film and it holds up well. The perspective aspect is interesting and more unusual. Format: Digital [Shudder].Theme Subset
204. Blumhouse's Fantasy Island [Unrated] (2020, 109 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Production values help this go a lot longer than it should with some 'cringe for the wrong reasons' twists. The Fantasy concept is so open ended and abstract it could have gone anywhere but instead it's pigeon holed into an odd revenge film with strangely specific mechanisms. It's a surprisingly simple thriller that doesn't get as far out as it should and it's sinister elements are clean and surface level. Format: Digital [Vudu UHD].1st Theme Subset

October 29 [Slasher Killer Theme Night] (12 hours, 27 minutes watched)
205. The Curse of Buckout Road (2017, 97 minutes) ★★★★★✰✰✰✰✰ Urban legend horror with dream sequences galore and bites off a lot to chew (looking at multiple legends, romance subplot, lost parents subplot, etc). Format: Digital [Vudu].1st
206. One Must Fall (2018, 86 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ Buddy office comedy slasher with a cool idea. Some of the 'comedy' is odd (blood spree - cut to boss dancing in his underwear) and most of the office segments are more dull than entertaining but the score. I'm a sucker for the abandoned warehouse scene and they are not shy on the gore. The killer is fun, charismatic, and filled with religious fever but some of the other cast don't do as well. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
207. 31 (2016, 102 minutes) ★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Mish mash of random clowns, nazis, giants, etc in a disorganized spray of random gore that's too unfocused for it's own good not focusing enough on tension, character, or even it's own excessively crafted ghouls. There are circus allusions which fits because there are flash in the pan highlights but most of the everything Rob Zombie tossed into the film rarely work - sensational and gimmicky to a fault without much content. Characters yelling 'I want to f-ck you' in an assorted of different ways trying to be creepy starts to feel formatted and was never very funny (?) or scary (?) to begin with. Texas Chainsaw riffs being misinterpreted into a slew of fake wigs, chains, and grease paint. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
208. Inseminoid (1981, 93 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Strange dated twist on Alien that feels more like something out of the 60s given it's apparent low budget. It's hilarious and clever for the space villain to be a pregnant woman/mother (which I'm sure saved on effects) and along with the scifi setting it turns what might have been a bland action slasher into one that is delightfully cheesy. Format: Digital [Prime]. 1st Theme
209. My Soul to Take (2010, 107 minutes) ★½✰ Up next. "It's not ok for everyone to be killing each other all the time!" is a serious line here - one Wes Craven's final films that I've heard bad things about but starts out fast paced with a cool abstract premise then draaags. It's impressively quick with setup explaining a bunch of 7 souls stuff then goes into high school drama with weird Ripper Day' rituals and Condor school '[mascot stuff that's occasionally visually interesting but makes little sense and isn't really how kids act. [color=grey]Format: Digital [Youtube, purchase].
1st Theme
210a. Never Hike Alone (2017, 54 minutes) ★½✰ Well executed Friday the 13th fan film with fun twists, nice direction/cinematography, and a lot of heart - there are some gorey near slapstick moments that are well paced. Format: Digital [Youtube, free]. Theme
210b. Never Hike In the Snow (2020, 31 minutes) ★½✰ Crisper looking than the original with a larger cast but probably could have done with more runtime - it's a deeper homage to Friday the 13th with more specific franchise details and a true sequel to Never Hike Alone so got some good contunity. Format: Digital [Youtube, free]. Theme
211. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988, 88 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰I love how they keep Donald Pleasence in the mix through so many of the sequels when it would have been easy to write him off; his obsessive quest against Myers is part of what 'makes' the series. It's silly how they bandage up Michael's face here and so laboriously explain his return to Haddonfield , the staging is overly long with large swaths of exposition taking too long. Bonus points for recreating another babysitting scenario (on Halloween). "Jamie's an orphan" - Daniella Harris does well as a child actress. The rocking chair bit is a cool scene.
The bits where Myers doesn't seem to know how to use or like guns are cool/funny additions to Myers storyline. Halloween 4 seems to spend a lot of time mocking that the police (and guns) don't protect the victims here, hard to tell if that's satire or cheap thrill fodder. What a gutsy perfect ending.Format: Digital [Vudu]. Theme Subset
212. Relic (2020, 89 minutes) ★★★★★★★✰✰✰ Talk about a slow burn but gets to a nice intensity and seems to have context to it's grisly conclusion that sticks beyond the film. A building eeriness is wonderfully done here and pulls at the heartstrings with it's tale of a grandmotherly old lady. I've read some analysis of this that suggests it's ending is straight forward but I think it's so open to interpretation nut perfectly nails mood. Format: Digital [Vudu]. 1st

October 30 [Devil's Night - Witch/Demon/Satan Theme Night] (11 hours, 46 minutes watched)
213. The Wretched (2019, 96 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Rear Window / Fright Night style 'my neighbor might be a [insert fiend]' films have become more common but Wretched is well suited to the premise. It's stylish with colorful characters and music capturing hang out slice of life elements and interjecting a sinister twist that the people we might trust the most could be trying to eat us. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
214. The Witch Behind the Door [aka Janara] (2015, 87 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Gothic Italian thriller that is short on visuals and high on atmosphere. The poster/cover is misleading because it's a slow teasing film with more implied than displayed. It's probably a film I would have enjoyed even more if I was in the right mood for. Sometimes it struggles to hold suspense without giving more to the viewer but it's character driven elements ultimately work out. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
215. Chasing the Devil (2014, 84 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ As if Paranormal Activity, The Thing, The Ringu and two-ish others films were recreated by the local collage theater group. Routine possession film with some wooden acting is decent but often reminds of other films once there's a cool hook (a girl attacks the pope at the vatican is the movie I want to see) melts into a found footage muck. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
216. Evangeline (2013, 85 minutes) ★★★½✰✰✰✰✰✰ Moody possession revenge film (like if The Crow was an emo teen). "What the f-ck do you want? You're dead. We killed you" says the unconvincing bully murderer. It's got a cool comeuppance undercurrent and likeable lead but the bad guys are generic church group boys and are not convincingly mean spirited (which was maybe the point). There are some cool visual flourishes like Evangeline as a chipped porcelain doll (on the poster) but I won't call it stylish often having grim dark shots. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
217. The Witches (1990, 91 minutes) ★★★★★★★★✰✰ The Witches is a classic film that never gets old. I do not think director Nicholas Roeg ever has the camera at eye level and coupled with the often wide shots it creates a strange whimsical perspective of scenes that are otherwise staged in very routine ways (well except for the scenic hotel beach). Angelica Huston is epic here, her dialect (sound like she has something in her mouth while trying to enthusiastically talk) works really well. I love how warty and gruesome her witch guise is then when she is normal she is wearing a very low cut teasing dress with neck for miles. The purple eyes glinting is a cool idea; witches are everywhere and we could most easily see their purple peepers if we were just looking but I'm not sure it always works (a bit obvious, seems to get dropped) but fortunately the excellent effects here makes that easy to overlook. It is a shame Jim Henson died so relatively young (53) because he really elevated the art of practical effects and puppetry without much of an obvious successor since and The Witches is a great example that would not be the same film without his brand of careful imagery. Ronald Dahl is a genius but I am not sure how much credit he gets for what really makes The Witches work - the effects, direction, and acting really pump up the source. I do not think I'm in a hurry to watch the new version any time soon.Format: Digital [Vudu]. Theme Subset
218. I Am Fear (2020, 82 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ A politically tinted newscaster based horror with a premise ultimately a little too 'on the nose' that feels more like a cheapshot than a powerful message but gets credit for real world commentary. The script is sometimes confusing keeping track of thin flashes of backstory people like Ra'ar and Halliel with different double crosses and political rhetoric. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
219. Here Comes Hell (2019, 76 minutes) ★★★★★★✰✰✰✰ More fun than it ought to be for a film that is literally pretentious (filmed in black and white as a '1930s dinner party'). Sort of a slow burn if you can be patient through the first half suddenly it gets gorey and works much better. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
220. Little Joe (2019, 105 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Neon soaked pastel visuals with a simmering evil plant thriller that feels restrained after other similarly themed films with the heights of Invasion of Body Snatchers or the oddball comedy of Little Shop of Horrors. I think there's some jabs at generic modification and pharmaceuticals but neither themes nor content is as sharp as it should be. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st

October 31 [Halloween Theme Night] (9 hours, 38 minutes watched)
221. Haunt (2019, 92 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ A bunch of kids hanging out in a lifeless background hinting at something sinister which finally comes with an supremely odd twist that stands out making the film work despite it's otherwise lackluster staging. [I liked Houses October Build better] Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
222. Hubie Halloween (2020, 102 minutes) ★★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰ Hubie Halloween has Halloween spirit to spare and with high production values - no telling how much money Netflix is throwing at Adam Sandler and his surprisingly enduring oddball sense of humor (actually there's probably a reports of how much, but I don't want to know). I love how each scene is oozing Halloween comedically down to a local diner. I watched this with my 9 year old son and I'm now afraid he might be an Adam Sandler fan (but might be a good age for the humor). The swiss army Thermos stuff was funny and there were a few scenes that make us chuckle. Overall - Hubie Halloween was fun but it's the Halloween special we deserve and not the one we need right now. Maybe if Adam Sandler could quit ending up in Adam Sandler movies - the intentionally wooden mumbling is tiresome quickly and his self-depretiating humor often falls because he is such a ham here. Better than Eight Crazy Nights. Format: Digital [Netflix].1st Theme
223. The Sound (2017, 92 minutes) ★★★✰✰✰✰✰✰✰ Rose McGowan 2.0 runs around an abandoned train station with interludes of her tweeting and web browsing in what might be the least scary adandoned place film I've seen. 'The Sound' element is a neat one but so abrupt it only offers a sort of explaination rather than adding to any suspense and none of anything makes sense here. Christopher Lloyd is wasted here. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
224. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019, 108 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ I didn't think this worked as a tribute to the excellent 'Scary Stories' young adult books or lived up the masterful legacy of director André Øvredal (Troll Hunter, Autopsy of Jane Doe) but it was an atmospheric Halloween film. I think it would have been better without the Scary Story elements, which feel almost misplaced in an otherwise generic seeming film. There are long scenes of often CGI monsters chasing our heros that dash atmosphere and take it to a matter of fact fantasy realm. There is a book but nothing like the original text other than some of the stories. Format: Digital [Vudu UHD].1st Theme
225. The Hunt (2020, 90 minutes) ★★★★★½✰✰✰✰ Lead actress Betty Gilpin carried the film which has some clever elements and subtext that seems interesting but is so 'both sides' that it's hard to follow thematically - even saying nothing with such specifics that it's confusing. Fast paced action comedy more stupid than it seems at first glance. Format: Digital [Vudu UHD].1st Theme
226. True Fiction (2019, 94 minutes) ★★★★★★★½✰✰ Fastinating topsy turvy cat and mouse game between an alleged writer and an alleged assistant, I think about the creative process, that's not afraid to be mean spirited and gutsy with the unexpected. There are some indie production values but the story is so unhinged, even over the top, it makes up for some of it's shortcomings.Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme

November 1 [Comedy Crossover Theme Until Dawn, 7:10am Texas time if I can stay up plus Daylights Savings] [Comedy Crossover Theme Night] (2 hours, 55 minutes watched)
227. Cannibals and Carpet Fitters (2017, 83 minutes) ★★★★½✰✰✰✰✰ Very british comedy that feels very familiar and would have been more forgetable with a weaker ending. Format: Digital [Vudu].1st Theme
228. Dead End Drive-in (1986, 92 minutes) ★★★★★★½✰✰✰ Nostalgic 80s dystopian camp and action in strang allegory tale that's a lot more fun than it should be basked in neon light. Format: Blu-ray [Arrow].1st Theme

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

October 1

1. Fear Pharm (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. A corn maze is used by a family of psychos to hunt victims and make skin cream with their skin. A subpar flick that does squeeze out a couple of good scenes. Watching a guy have his skin removed with a medical cheese grater was a little squeamish.

2.Cult Girls (2019). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5. A woman can't shake her past when she was involved with a cult as a child. Stay away from this one unless you need to catch up on some sleep. All is not lost as there is some dancing in the woods nudity.

October 2

3. 12 Hour Shift (2020). FTV. Streamed 3/5.

October 3

4. Black Water: Abyss (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. Five friends explore a cave only to get trapped with water and one big ass crocodile.
Just seemed to be a boring version of Rogue (2007) and Crawl with toned down violence. I think its a sequel of sorts to Black Water (2007). Swim away from this one.

October 4

5. Hush (2008). FTV. Watched on DVD. 2.5/5.
A man's girlfriend is kidnapped while on a road trip leaving him to save the day.
Average flick that has him mostly chasing his own tail. Nothing new here.

6. Buzzard (2014). FTV. Watched on DVD. 3/5.
A misguided youth who likes to con people starts to have karma come back at him.
A slow burn with a twist at the end.

7. Camp Cold Brook (2018). FTV. Streamed. 2/5.
Some ghost hunters set out to film at a haunted camp only to find its really haunted.
Lame outing for sure. When there is over a thousand films with the exact same plot, you have to stand out. This one does not.

8. The Candy Witch (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2/5.
The Candy Witch is out to settle the score getting her sweet revenge.

Slow moving horror still manages to entertain while she is choking her victims with candy floss or cutting cookies out of their skin. I didn't think candy could be so dangerous.

October 5

9. The Child Remains (2017). FTV. Streamed. 2/5.

10. The Cleaning Lady (2018). FTV. Streamed. 2.5/5.
A woman hires the maintenance girl of her building to clean her apartment twice a week. Things don't go very well as she starts to use her own cleaning solutions.

This one zips along pretty good as we watch how mentally unbalanced the cleaner is and how she got that way shown in flashbacks. The film has a scummy Single White Female feel.

October 6

11. Corpse (2018). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. A book drives people insane when they read it. It will drive you insane trying to get through this artsy, trippy madness.

October 7

12. Anonymous Killers (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2.5/5. A group of psychotic killers wake up barb wired to chairs. An even more psychotic man makes them all confess their inner most secrets by way of pain.

The whole film doesn't really make sense when you get down to it but there are several graphic kills.

October 8

13. Archons (2018). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. A band goes camping in the woods with a bag of acid looking for inspiration for their next album. They instead grow worms in their heads and become targets of these tree creature looking things.
Had potential but alas we get this offering which leaves a big void. A cool bubbling forehead scene that eventually pops however.

14. Books Of Blood (2020). FTV. Streamed. 3/5.

15. Covenant (2018). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. Mostly a snoozefest. You don't see the covenant till the end.

16. Skinner (1993). FTV. Watched on DVD. 2.5/5. Younger versions of Traci Lords and Ricki Lake share the screen with a prostitute skin peeler who mostly gets the skin off in one piece. This guy needs a new hooker suit every day.

Slow at times but some cool 90's effects.

17. The Amityville Harvest (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. Nothing really to do with Amityville. A better title is The Amityville Vampire.


October 9

18. Skullduggery (1983). FTV. Watched on DVD. 1.5/5. This flick is the worst one of the challenge so far.

19. Crispy's Curse (2017). FTV. Streamed. 2/5.
A below average British horror comedy that has a bunch of misfits trying to track down the ghost of a killer clown.
During some parts I laughed the rest of the time I wondered what the hell I was watching this for.

20. Zombie Isle (2014). FTV. Watched on DVD. 1.5/5.

21. Crocodylus (2017). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5. Another awful creature feature with a 60.00 budget.

22. The Comeback (1978). FTV. Watched on DVD. 3/5. Pete Walker uses the guy who sang The Love Boat theme song (Jack Jones) as the lead along side the Charlie's Angels guy David Doyle.


October 10

23. Cruel Peter (2019). FTV. Streamed. 2.5/5. Pretty creepy and has a cool gothic setting but manages to be boring.

24. Carrion (2020). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5. During most of the film you're wondering what the hell is going on! I'm sure in somebody's head this made sense.

25. Cabal (2020). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5. Rene Perez brings us another pile of poo with a Mighty Morphin type guy going up against a bodybuilding Jason. Nudity will get you through this one.

26. Cupid (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2.5/5. This is one nasty cupid who is ugly as hell and he likes to shoot arrows into peoples heads. He does mix it up by slicing a throat with a Valentine's Day card!

​​​​​​
October 11

27. The Curse Of Audrey Earnshaw (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2.5/5. Almost trying for another The VVitch but never gets there. Entertaining though.

28. Coven (2020). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5.

29. The Curse Of Lilith Ratchet (2018). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5. Lilith has been conjured now everyone is in danger including me for watching this.

30. Sadistic Eroticism (2012). FTV. Watched on DVD. 2.5/5. A Troma type horror comedy that pushes almost 2 1/2 hours!


October 12

31. Cut And Chop (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. A troubled actor gets way too involved in his latest role in which he plays a killer. Just a pile of regurgitated films all thrown into a blender.

32. The Dark Days Of Demetrius (2019). FTV. Streamed. 2.5/5. Sick twisted trip through the mind of a serial killer who does his killings live on the internet.

33. Dark Amazon (2014). FTV. Watched on DVD. 2/5. On a trek through the amazon some friends start dying off. Done as a found footage.

34. Big Freaking Rat (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. A man sized rat formed from toxic waste chews away on all the park patrons. Felissa Rose is behind this mess.


October 13

35. Dark, Deadly And Dreadful (2018). FTV. Streamed. 2.5/5. A bunch of short films are slapped together to give us 90 minutes of mayhem. Some are good and some aren't. You know how it goes with these anthologies.

36. Dark October (2020). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5. Really bad low budget where some friends go to a concert and of course break down near an old schoolhouse.

October 15

37. Darkness Waits (2020). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5. A really bad one with a paranormal team checking out a site where they are killed off one by one.

October 16

38. Dead By Dawn (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2/5.

October 17

39. The Dead Ones (2019). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. Students are trapped in a school by some masked killers to teach them some kind of lesson. Some cool effects in this one but not much else.

40. Cry Havoc (2020). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5. Havoc still loves to chase and kill half naked women. This time he has a Charles Bronson clone (Robert Bronzi) to contend against.

Usual Rene Perez crap with the lots of gore.

October 18

41. Death Of A Vlogger (2019). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. A Youtuber has people convinced his place is haunted then he is found to be a fraud. His place gets haunted again and the cycle continues. Just a found footage flick you'll want to overlook.

42. Lycanimator (2018). FTV. Watched on DVD. 2/5. This one is no Ginger Snaps or Re- Animator that is for sure.

43. Devil's Night: Dawn Of The Nain Rouge (2020). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5.

44. Do Not Reply (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. A man kidnaps young girls then slaps cheerleading outfits on them. He then uses them for a virtual reality snuff project. An annoying protagonist and lame everything else makes me think it should have been called Do Not Watch! It felt like a Hallmark movie with swearing.

45. Doctor Death: Seeker Of Souls (1973). Watched on DVD. 2.5/5. A man goes to all avenues to find a way to bring his dead wife back. A good little grindhouse flick with a laughable ending.


October 19

46. Awakening The Nun (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. A disgruntled nun is terrorizing a small town seeking revenge with a big kitchen knife. Nothing new here. This one is also called Bad Nun.

October 20

47. Doll House (2020). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5.

48. Dreamkatcher (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. A boy suffering from nightmares gets a dreamcatcher but it turns out to be an evil kind which is a dreamkatcher (I knew right away he was in for a bad spell). This one had potential but never really takes off. You do get to see a 10 year old chasing everyone with an axe for half the movie.

October 21

49. Eden Burning (2020). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5. Kids are lured out into the woods for a weekend of drug induced nightmares. They drag the sh** out this movie only for something to happen in the last 6 minutes.

50. An English Haunting (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2/5.

October 22

51. Evil Little Things (2019). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5. Short stories about dolls that come to life. Just plain bad.

October 23

52. Evil Takes Root (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. A sacred tree gets cut down releasing an evil tree spirit that jumps into the closest human host becoming a tree demon. Things branch out from here.

Tree demons aren't usually the scariest things but they try. Most of the acting was wooden anyways. You do see a tree getting an exorcism which doesn't happen everyday. It had me stumped! Alright I'll leave.

53. Evil Under The Skin (2019). FTV. Streamed 1.5/5.

October 24

54. Eyes Of The Dead (2015). FTV. Watched on DVD. 2/5. A new pesticide is sprayed on the corn which turns people into zombies. This one is done as a first person view so you see through his eyes as both human and as a zombie. At first the concept is cool but then after 20 minutes it just seems to repeat.

55. The Faceless Man (2019). FTV. Streamed. 2/5.

October 25

56. Fang (2018). FTV. Streamed. 2.5/5. A werewolf family feeds on the visitors they get from time to time. Lots of low budget blood in this one done campy style.

57. Fat Ass Zombies (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2/5. Silly horror comedy with a man filming a zombie flick using real zombies.

58. Final Cut (2018). FTV. Streamed. 2/5.

59. Frankenstein 1970 (1958). FTV. Watched on DVD. 2.5/5. The fifth Frankenstein flick Boris Karloff appears in has him renting out his castle to a film company to help pay the bills. They shoot their film while Boris does his creating life thing. Not bad but the series was running out of steam.

60. Garden Party Massacre (2017). FTV. Streamed. 2.5/5.


October 26

61. Gehenna: Where Death Lives (2016). FTV. Watched on DVD. 2.5/5. An old WW2 bunker is the setting of this one. This one wasn't too bad except for the Lance Henricksen role which lasted one phone call.

October 27

62. The Goocher (2020). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5. This one starts off as Battle Royale then it turns into a zombie flick. Just awful. Avoid this one.

63. Gretel And Hansel (2020). FTV. Streamed. 2.5/5. A pretty cool twist to the story.

October 28

64. Grim Woods (2019). FTV. Streamed. 1.5/5. Some friends sit around a campfire reading horror stories to one another from a mysterious book. Another bad low budget time waster. If you took Grim Prairie Tales (1990) and smashed it with a hammer this is would be the end result.

October 29

65. The Beast And The Magic Sword (1983). FTV. Watched on Bluray. 3/5. Paul Naschy is off to Japan to find a cure for his werewolfness. This one has everything in it even the werewolf wrestling a tiger just before he gets chained up and whipped. No dull moments here.

October 30

66. Halloween Party (2019). FTV. Streamed. 2.5/5. A haunted meme is hitting computers having them type in their biggest fear within so many seconds. If you don't, you die by your fear (it just knows even if you didn't type anything). Mostly cheesy but it does have its share of jump scares. I did like the ending.

October 31

67. Hollywood Horror House (1970). FTV. Watched on Blu-ray. 2.5/5.

68. Deadly Manor (1990). FTV. Watched on Blu-ray. 2.5/5.

Thanks everybody and see you next year.

Challenges completed: No idea


~ = first time viewing
All ratings out of 5 stars


Movies:
~1. The Darkest Hour (2011 - 3D Blu-ray - *1/2) - A cliché movie you have seen done better dozens of times before.
2. Cemetery Man aka Dellamorte Dellamore (1994 - 3D Blu-ray - ***1/2) - Such a bizarre comedy horror film. Utterly unique. I like it better each time I see it.
3. Hellbenders (2012 - 3D Blu-ray - ***1/2) - Very underrated comedy horror which is actually funny but has some really creepy moments as well. Extremely irreverent! More Clancy Brown is always welcome!
4. Children Of The Corn (1984 - Blu-ray - **) - Not really sure why this has a cult following. Every time I have watched this movie, it never impresses me. Don't think I will try again.
~5. Haxan (1922 - Streaming - ***1/2) - This movie has better effects than many made today 100 years later! Historically significant & a fascinating watch.
~6. Hidden 3D (2011 - Blu-ray - *) - I no longer have 3D capability for Region B as that would be the only reason to watch this film. Bad story, bad acting, bad CG, etc. It looked like the 3D might have been good though.
~7. The Life, Legacy And Legend Of Donald P. Borchers (2016 - Blu-ray - ***1/2) - An extra documentary on the import BD of Children Of The Corn; B-Movie Film producer. Very interesting and fun.
8. Club Dread (2004 - Unrated Version - DVD - ***1/2) - I love this movie. It is funny as hell but I have to admit the unrated version goes on a little too long.
9. The Lost Boys (1987 - Blu-ray - ***) - I know this is considered a classic but it just never has done much for me. It is okay but I don't quite get the cult following.
~10. Crawl (2019 - Streaming - **) - Starts out okay with occasionally bad CG but devolves into utter stupidity and loses all aspects of realism it sorta begins with.
11. House Of Wax (1953 - 3D Blu-ray - ***1/2) - Watched w/ commentary by David Del Valle & Constantine Nasr. Commentary is a little dry but interesting. *** for it alone.
12. Misery (1990 - Blu-ray - ***1/2) - Still a good movie but the book is still a lot better. James Caan deserved the Oscar more than Kathy Bates.
13. It Came From Outer Space (1953 - 3D Blu-ray - **1/2) - Watched w/ commentary by film historian Tom Weaver. Interesting stuff but his voice made me sleepy. *** for it alone.
~14. Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan (2011 - Blu-ray - ****1/2) - Extremely enjoyable but too short documentary on the legend.
~15. The Devil Rides Out (1968 - Streaming - ***) - See my thoughts in the specific review thread.
16. Frenzy (1972 - Blu-ray - ****1/2) - See my thoughts in the specific review thread.
17. The Devil's Rejects (2005 - Blu-ray - **1/2) - Watched it going back and forth between the two commentaries. I just never have understood the love for this film.
18. Lifeforce (1985 - Blu-ray - ***) - Theatrical version - Mostly great practical effects but poor acting and bad story doesn't help its cause.
19. Shark Night 3D (2011 - Blu-ray - *1/2) - Another region B 3D disc I don't have the capability for anymore. The 3D would be the only reason to sit through this turd.
~20. Silent Hill: Revelation (2012 - Blu-ray - **) - Some cool creatures but damn, is it dull!
21. The Fly (1986 - Blu-ray - *****) - This movie is fantastic. Great acting, great effects, great story. One of the few updates that is better than the original in my opinion.
22. Children Of The Corn II: The Final Sacrifice (1992 - Blu-ray - **) - A little better than the first one. But not much.
23. The Burning (1981 - Blu-ray - ***1/2) - Decent Friday The 13th rip-off. I am a sucker for camping movies for some reason.
~23. Children Of The Corn III: Urban Harvest (1995 - Blu-ray - **1/2) - Believe it or not, actually better than the first two.
~24. Spiders (2013 - 3D Blu-ray - **) - Bad acting, bad story, really bad CG...but somehow still mildly entertaining.
25. Dark Night Of The Scarecrow (1981 - Blu-ray - ****) - One of the best Made For TV movies ever. Loved it as a kid. Love it as an adult.
~26. Poltergeist (2015 - 3D Blu-ray - **) - Very unnecessary remake. Brings nothing new or interesting to to the table.
27. An American Werewolf In London (1981 - Blu-ray - ****) - A Classic with special effects that still stand today.
28. Godzilla (2014 - 3D Blu-ray - ***) - A decent movie but too bloated and not enough Godzilla.
29. Bloody Birthday (1981 - Blu-ray - ***1/2) - A totally bizarre and unique slasher. A lot of fun of kids like you have never seen.
30. The Mad Magician (1954 - 3D Blu-ray - ***) - Watched w/ commentary by David Del Valle & Steven Peros. *** for it. They tend to wander a little too much.
31. Pieces (1982 - Blu-ray - ***) - Watched w/ funny(?) commentary by podcasters Riders Of The Apocalypse. **1/2 stars for their commentary.
32. Tenebrae (1982 - Blu-ray - ***1/2) - Watched with commentary by Argento scholar Maitland McDonagh. *** for her comments. Describes what is going on a little too often though.
33. Underworld (2003 - Blu-ray - ****) - I love how this movie just starts you right in the middle of its lore and it has to be one of the most aggressive 5.1 soundtracks ever.
~34. Coraline (2009 - 3D Blu-ray - ***) - Beautiful to look at and so original...but I found it grew tedious for me after awhile.
35. Invasion Of The Scream Queens (1992 - DVD - ***) - Horrible quality but interesting time capsule at the height/end of the Scream Queen video era.
36. Screaming In High Heels: The Rise & Fall Of The Scream Queen Era (2011 - DVD - ****) - Much better documentary than the aforementioned but only focuses on the Big 3.
~37. Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (2015 - 3D Blu-ray - 1/2) - I think I have come to despise "found footage" films more than any other genre. This movie is crap.
~38. Paranormal Xperience 3D (2011 - 3D Blu-ray - **1/2) - Spanish film mixing TCM with ghosts...kinda. More entertaining that I expected.
39. Night Of The Creeps (1986 - Streaming - ***) - This one is a fun comedy horror. Very light-hearted with some good practical effects for its low budget.
~40. Never Hike Alone & Never Hike In The Snow (2017 & 2020 - Streaming - **** & ***1/2) - Both of these together add up to approx 1.5 hours. Best fan films I have seen.
41. Underworld: Evolution (2006 - Blu-ray - ***1/2) - Not quite as good as the original but still plenty of fun action. It's downhill from here folks.
42. Night Of The Demons (1988 - Blu-ray - ***1/2) - I liked this one more when I was younger but it is still a great time. Really good effects & creepiness for the budget.
43. Night Of The Demons 2 (1994 - Blu-ray - ***1/2) - Believe it or not, a sequel that is actually as good as the original. This one is fun and creepy just like the first one!
44. The Exorcist (1973 - Blu-ray - ****) - The classic. Obviously not as shocking today but still has several effective scenes.
~45. The Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977 - Blu-ray - *) - One big fucking mess.
46. Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans (2009 - Blu-ray - *1/2) - This one does nothing for me. Everything is done poorly compared to the first two movies.
~47. Cruel Jaws (1995 - Blu-ray - **) - Well...if you want to see how Ed Wood would make a modern day film...here you go. Horrible but mildly entertaining.
48. Night Of The Demons 3 (1997 - DVD - ***) - Amazingly, just a minor step down from the first two. If you enjoyed them, you will likely enjoy this one as well!
49. Underworld: Awakening (2012 - 3D Blu-ray - **) - A little better than the prior one but not by much. Their storylines and timelines are fucked if you watched the first three.
50. Night Of The Demons (2009 - Blu-ray - *1/2) - A waste of time remake. Other than a couple of scenes, it is worthless.
51. Texas Chainsaw (2013 - 3D Blu-ray - **1/2) - A few good moments mixed w/ some very cringe worthy ones. Watched w/ commentary by Tobe Hooper.
~52. Underworld: Blood Wars (2016 - Blu-ray - *) - Wow...probably one of the worst edited movies I have ever seen. Laughable. This series needs to have a stake thru the heart.
54. Friday The 13th: Part III (1982 - 3D Blu-ray - ***) - Probably nostalgia clouds my judgement on this film. Amazing to see in Real 3D though. Like watching it for the first time!
55. Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990 - DVD - ***) - Not great but doesn't its terrible reputation either.
56. Amityville 3-D (1983 - 3D Blu-ray - *1/2) - Great 3D marred by a terribly boring story. No scares. No fun.
57. Hostel (2005 - Blu-ray - ****1/2) - This movie still sticks with you. It has it all and does it all well, in my opinion.
58. Night Of The Living Dead (1968 - Blu-ray - ****1/2) - The granddaddy of modern Zombie films. This one still holds up well.
59. Monster House (2006 - 3D Blu-ray - **) - I thought I remembered liking this one more than I did. Ugly character animation and clichés galore.
60. My Bloody Valentine (2009 - 3D Blu-ray - ***1/2) - Watched with commentary w/ Director & Co-writer. Engaging commentary on one of the slasher updates/remakes.
~61. As Above So Below (2014 - Streaming - ***) - Found-footage (which I usually hate) movie. Basically Blair Witch meets Indiana Jones. Better than expected.
62. Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers (1988 - Blu-ray - **1/2) - See my comments in the dedictated review thread.
~63. Midsommar (2019 - Streaming - ***1/2) - Bizarre, unsettling, slightly unsatisfying flick that got way too much press. Decent but not great. Beautifully shot though with excellent acting!


Television:
~.25 The Twilight Zone (2002 - DVD - Episode 6 - "Night Route" - ***) - A standard story and the poor acting doesn't help it but I did enjoy the slight twist at the end. Ione Skye missing her gorgeous locks of hair!
~.50 Dark Shadows (1968 - DVD - Episode 493) - Frankenstein's Monster, I mean..."Adam," runs amok! (actually he just looks quietly at a bird bath but everybody freaks out)
~1.0 Ghost Story aka Circle Of Fear (1972 - DVD - Episode 9 - "Cry Of The Cat" - **1/2) - A female Were-Cougar?!?! Should be interesting but it really isn't. Jackie Cooper & Doug McClure can't save this.
~1.5 Ghost Story aka Circle Of Fear (1972 - DVD - Episode 10 - "Elegy For A Vampire" - **) - Barney Miller and B.J. Hunnicutt can't keep you from falling asleep on this one either. Predictable and dull.
~2.0 Ghost Story aka Circle Of Fear (1972 - DVD - Episode 11 - "Touch Of Madness" - ***) - A young Rip Torn playing an old guy! Decent episode with a decent twist. The female lead in this has a really creepy face!
~2.25 The Twilight Zone (2002 - DVD - Episode 2 - "One Night At Mercy" - **1/2) - George Costanza plays Death. Not the way you would think. Not bad but not good either.
2.5 Tales From The Crypt (1991 - DVD - Season 3, Episode 10 - "Mournin' Mess" - **1/2) - Predictable twist. Nothing special as an episode. Steven Weber & Rita Wilson star.
2.75 Tales From The Crypt (1991 - DVD - Season 3, Episode 11 - "Split Second" - ***1/2) - Predictable but fun. Brion James is always welcome.
~3.0 Tales From The Darkside (1985 - DVD - Season 2, Episode 12 - "Monsters In My Room" - ***) - A very young Seth Green stars with a crappy stepdad that meets a predictable end.
~3.25 Tales From The Crypt (1991 - DVD - Season 3, Episode 12 - "Deadline" - ***1/2) - Nice twist!
3.5 Tales From The Crypt (1991 - DVD - Season 3, Episode 13 - "Spoiled" - ****1/2) - This is one of the best TFTC I have seen. Tons of fun and more double entendres than you can count!
~4.0 Ghost Story aka Circle Of Fear (1972 - DVD - Episode 12 - "Creatures Of The Canyon" - **1/2) - Angie Dickinson stalked by a dog!

* = First Time Viewing
Theme Night Film
Media if not DVD


October 01
01. Midsommar (2019)* Streaming Amazon 6/10
No surprises in the plot, everything happens the way you think it will given the hints early on but there are a few really creepy parts along the way and even more total weirdness. It's long and leisurely paced with a good buildup but the payoff just isn't there for me. The end seems kind of pointless (but weird) unless these people are just all crazy.
02. The Dark Side of the Moon (1990)* Blu-ray 5/10
Sci-Fi horror film is filled with nonsense but manages to whip up some suspense and tension and ultimately turns into a mindless action flick. The acting is adequate and the effects and sets are a little cheesy but all in all it's fun. Satan in space.
03. Scream of the Wolf (1974)* Streaming Amazon 5/10
Decent TV movie (ABC) with Peter Graves has some nice atmospheric scenes and a few tense stalking sequences but it gets talky and a little slow in the middle. Love that 70's TV soundtrack though.
04. Howl (2015)* Streaming Amazon 6.5/10
Well made British film about late night commuters trapped on a stalled train by werewolves. Well paced with tension and excitement throughout the movie. Stock characters but dialog and acting is good. Pretty good looking monsters.

October 02
05. The Other (1972)* Blu-ray 8/10
Set in the 1930's this story of twin brothers growing up on a farm hooked me right away and kept me absorbed to the end with a sense of growing menace. Good period feel, a strong cast - including the kids, and a solid, intelligent story that had some real surprises. 459/1000
06. Dust Devil: The Final Cut (1992) 6/10
Shot in Namibia, locations and landscapes are used to great effect along with the soundtrack to establish an eerie, sometimes mystical atmosphere. The supernatural threat seems based on African legends. Very deliberately paced this film is interesting but not particularly scary. 673/1000
07. The Sentinel (1977)* Blu-ray 6/10
A strange movie, possibly because I was expecting a haunted house film. There are aspects of that but the story is much wider in scope. The plot was often confusing but it does mostly make sense at the end. There are several strange and creepy scenes some of which have a good dose of sleaze. OK acting but the stars lacked chemistry. 251/1000

October 03
08. The Slumber Party Massacre III (1990)* (Roger Corman's Cult Classics The Slumber Party Massacre Collection) 5/10
Pretty standard slasher (with a big honkin' drill) movie. Victims are often pretty dim in these flicks but the ones here are possibly the stupidest of all, ignoring many chances to defend or flee. Still, the end is exciting.
09. Autopsy (1975)* 5/10
OK giallo favors mystery over mayhem but does have several grisly moments. The plot is relatively straightforward for this kind of film but still has twists and some quirky characters.
10. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) Blu-ray 7/10
An intense ride that sill holds up due to masterful combination of visuals, sounds, and eerie background music. 7/10
11. Graverobbers (1988)* Blu-ray 5.5/10
Dark comedy about an undertaker and his new bride is an easy watch. The two leads along with the chauffeur fit their roles very well even though none of them had extensive acting careers. The story is absurd and the end makes no sense but there is a well done and gruesome chase near the end. Lots of fun.

October 04
12. The Brain (1988)* Blu-ray 5.5/10
Low budget Canadian creature feature about a giant brain that can control people's minds has plenty of action and suspense as the teen hero is hunted by the town. The acting is OK and the monster looks good but the finale was a bit of a letdown for me; otherwise a good time.
13. Killing Birds aka Zombie 5 (1988) Blu-ray 5/10
There are animal attacks, a haunted house, a mass murder, and zombies in this very watchable mishmash.
14. The Night Eats the World (2018)* Streaming Amazon 7/10
A resourceful young man in Paris tries to survive the zombie apocalypse on his own. Fascinating and well made with lots of atypical touches. The lead actor does a great job even though he rarely has anyone to interact with.

October 05
15. Long Island Cannibal Massacre (1980)* 5.5/10
Surprisingly watchable for a movie made on Super 8 by kids just out of high school. Sure there are flaws but the story is enough to maintain interest, there are flashes of filmmaking skill, and the end is truly disgusting.
16. Dark Harvest (1992)* 4/10
Killer scarecrows in the desert take on a bunch of stranded campers. This didn't work for me. The desert setting is good (the scarecrows are lamely explained) but there isn't much story and the killings aren't that great. The monsters are not well done and stuff just seems to happen at random.
17. Captives (1988)* (The Basement - Retro 80s Horror Collection) 6/10
A home invasion story with a little twist to it. The story is pretty good and generates some tension while moving along at a nice pace. The acting is variable but some isn't bad at all. The end is a little weak.
18. The Basement (1989)* (The Basement - Retro 80s Horror Collection) 5/10
Anthology movie with four stories of varying quality. The last one is pretty good, the others just OK. The acting is a detriment but some of the effects are decent.

October 06
19. The Perfume of the Lady in Black (1974)* 6/10
I thought this was a giallo but it has more in common with some classic Gothic stories and is about madness and conspiracies. The story almost makes sense but lots of things are unclear, even in retrospect, and the end is almost out of left field. Mimsy Farmer does a great job as the lead and I will watch this again.
20. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) (A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection) Blu-ray 7.5/10
What a great movie. It struck me that it starts out like a 50's bug movie with little mysteries popping up. It still manages to captivate me even though I know what's going on. The end is just a tiny bit disappointing though.
21. Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)* (Paranormal Activity 6 Movie Collection) Blu-ray 6.5/10
Theatrical version. Starts very slow but the end is a stunner. OK cast but the two main characters are not very likable. There are a couple of good scares. Thankfully, not too much shaky-cam involved.

October 07
22. The Last Winter (2006)* (The Larry Fessenden Collection) Blu-ray 6/10
Interesting and slightly different take on climate change set in Alaska around the Arctic circle in an oil company's forward camp. Increasing aura of creepiness and tension but a slightly disappointing menace. Good cast and always interesting.
23. Puppet Master 4 (1993)* 5/10
Silly fun has the puppets battling creatures from the forth dimension sent by the demon Sutek. The creatures and Sutek look pretty cool and while some of the story is wrapped up it is continued in the next movie.
24. Unhinged (1982)* (Brentwood Power of Evil 4 Movie Set) 4.5/10
Three young women, a dark and stormy night, a car wreck, a creepy old mansion in the middle of nowhere. Get the picture? Slow moving. The acting isn't awful but not good enough to avoid some tedium. The end may have been shocking at one time but I saw it coming pretty early on. A video nasty.

October 08
25. Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell (1974)* Streaming Amazon 6/10
Worthy finish to the Hammer Frankenstein movies has less elaborate sets but is well paced and as usual Peter Cushing does a fine job. A very different but effective take on the monster.
26. Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965)* Blu-ray 5.5/10
Anthology film with five stories. I liked the one with Christopher Lee the best and the one about the plant the least. The others all had their moments. The wrap around segments actually added a lot, providing a growing feeling of uneasiness.
27. The 11th Commandment (1986)* Blu-ray 5/10
Ex-seminary student breaks out of an institution and stabs his way across Los Angeles with his nine year old cousin in tow. Equal parts crime drama, slasher and night time soap there isn't anything outstandingly good or bad. Entertaining.

October 09
28. The Lighthouse (2019)* Streaming Amazon 6.5/10
Two men, one lighthouse, many dark and stormy nights. This gets intense and stays that way, with many hints of strangeness, the weather, and interpersonal friction contributing. Two good actors doing fine work. I didn't get everything and look forward to another viewing.
29. The Wailing (2019)* Streaming Amazon 6/10
Very long (I think too long) Korean film starts out with an strong touches of humor but once it gets going builds creepiness, tension and confusion. I thought I had a handle of things but there are a few scenes near the end I just don't get and I'm not sure what happened to some of the main characters. I'm feeling kind of stupid today.
30. A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985) (A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection) Blu-ray 5.5/10
I forgot what a different, but interesting, take on Freddy this one has as he actually appears in the physical world. The pace is good but there isn't really much atmosphere and the leads don't have much chemistry.

October 10
31. Lord Shango (1972)* Blu-ray 6/10
Story of restless spirits and voodoo has some atmospheric ceremonies (and some Christian gospel services). The acting is good and although supernatural events are often only implied they are effective scenes.
32. Legacy of Satan (1974)* Blu-ray 3.5/10
A satanic cult finds a sacrifice. The bad - loud often annoying synth score, dumb dialog, poor acting, main bad guy wears a huge, silly looking amulet. The good -the lead actress is quite attractive, the story was not quite what I expected, it's never boring, and is good for a few laughs.
33. Blood (1974)* Blu-ray 5/10
A vampire, a werewolf, and carnivorous plants searching for domestic bliss are featured in the Andy Mulligan epic. I liked the crazy story despite some flaws in the acting and sets. Not scary at all but lots of fun.
34. The Silent Scream (1980)* Blu-ray 5.5/10
Police investigate a murder in a remote boarding house for students. Well made with some name actors, a bit of mystery, a couple of creepy sets and an exciting finish. Not that many killings and not particularly gory.
35. Bog (1979)* Streaming Amazon 3.5/10
Creature feature straight out of the 1950's done in a laughably bad way. Lame script and poor acting even from established stars. Full of scientific blather that gets more absurd as the movie goes on. Can't really tell what the monster looks like which may be a good thing. I kind of liked it. I need help.
36. The Toolbox Murders (1980)* Blu-ray 6.5/10
Starts with several gruesome murders but then unexpectedly shifts mood and focus. Bloody violence returns near the end. Cameron Mitchell gives a very good performance in this absorbing movie.

October 11
37. The Cat People (1942) (Val Lewton Box) 9/10
An almost perfect movie. Each scene adds the right amount to the story and the increasingly dark mood. Great use of shadows to create feelings of danger and strangeness.
38. Hansel and Gretel (2007)* Blu-ray 7/10
Unusual and interesting take on the fairy tale is creepy, darkly twisted, and ultimately a bit sad. Very well done.
39. Maniac Mansion aka Murder Mansion (1972)* Streaming Amazon 5/10
Stranded travelers take refuge in a creepy manison. Mayhem follows. Nothing special at all but not bad.

October 12
40. Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974) (Godzilla: The Showa-Era Films, 1954–1975) Blu-ray 6/10
Good entry especially for this late in the game. Interesting alien invasion plot helps rather than hurts. King Seesar is not impressive however.
41. The Return of Godzilla (1984) Blu-ray 6.5/10
Well done start of a new movie cycle. There's a nice air of mystery in the beginning and a good sense of impending doom later on.
42. The Man They Could Not Hang (1939) (Icons of Horror Boris Karloff) 6/10
A doctor vows vengeance on those who condemned him to death. Karloff does his usual fine job and the rest of the cast are solid. Fast paced with a clever story.

October 13
43. Puppet Master 5 (1994)* (Charles Band's Puppetmaster Collection) 5/10
The puppets battle Sutek's ultimate creation and a corporate bigwig in this entertaining entry.
44. Phantasm III (1994) (Phantasm 5 Movie DVD Collection) 5/10
We learn a little bit more and meet some new companions in this OK entry but it's mostly just more of the same.
45. The Stendhal Syndrome (1996)* Blu-ray 7/10
A study of terror and madness. Very brutal at times and one scene really made me cringe but the story is well told and kept me on the edge of my seat.
46. Amityville Horror: The Evil Escapes (1989)* (Amityville The Cursed Collection (1989)) Blu-ray 5.5/10
Good TV movie (NBC) has too much happening too quickly and some other problems but does manage an exciting if just a little cheesy conclusion. Some good TV actors keep things interesting.

October 14
47. Hellmaster aka Them (1992)* Blu-ray 5/10
Very messy and confusing plot with almost uniformly bad acting except for John Saxon who pops up every once in a while and makes the most out of some awfully ridiculous dialog. But the sets are great, a rambling old building for exteriors and strangely colorful and eerie hallways inside. Also, several scenes work up a lot of suspense even if you don't know why stuff is happening.
48. Cannibal Apocalypse aka Cannibals in the Streets (1980)* Blu-ray 6/10
A cannibal virus causes mayhem. Good chase film as police try to track down the carriers. Performances are variable but the action and gore are more than acceptable. Tasty Italian schlock directed by Margheriti.
49. A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1985) (A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection) Blu-ray 6/10
Good entry has some nasty dreams and impressive images.
50. The Girl Who Knew Too Much (1980) 7/10
Breezy, well made story about an American tourist in Italy who tries to prove that she did witness a murder. Good use of light and shadows help provide atmosphere.

October 15
51. Bad Taste (1987)* Streaming Amazon 7/10
Gory, gross, and very funny with some decent action to boot.
52. The Deadly Spawn (1983) 5.5/10
A little tension, lots of blood, and good looking monsters. Also some love for classic movie monsters.
53. Nail Gun Massacre (1985)* 4.5/10
Sleazy and dismal. The killer looks great and individually the kills are OK but there are only so many variations on a nail gun killing.
54. Uninvited (1987)* Blu-ray 6/10
Basic idea may be a bit silly but the film is exciting with a competent cast and a fast pace. The monster has its moments.

October 16
55. Isle of the Dead (1945) (Val Lewton Box) 7.5/10
Good sets effectively used, a plot involving a quarantine, tales of an ancient evil, and fears of premature burial produces an eerie climax. Karloff and Lewton too!
56. The Vampire Lovers (1970)* MMDF 6.5/10
Above average Hammer vampire story has a slightly different take on the creatures. Good cast and very involving story.
Based on the novel "Carmilla" by Sheridan Le Fanu's.
57. Species (1995)* Blu-ray 5.5/10
Generally well made with some good creature effects but it just didn't grab me.

October 17
58. Sole Survivor (1984)* 6/10
Low budget but fairly effective film gradually builds up an air of foreboding without much gore or special effects. The finish is predictable but nicely set up.
59. The Psychic (1977)* 7/10
Very involving mystery about a psychic whose visions lead her to discover a skeleton in the wall of her husband's old house. Lots of twists, all fairly logical, with just one too easy explanation. Not much gore.
60. Autopsy (2008)* (After Dark Horrorfest III Collection) 6/10
After an accident five people are trapped in a bizarre and dangerous hospital. Nothing groundbreaking in plot or ideas but the tension keeps building and there are lots of suspenseful scenes. Lots of gross and icky gore too.

October 18
61. The Pit and the Pendulum (1991) 6/10
Good period feel. Lance Henrikson does a very good job as the lead and is well supported by the rest of the cast who also provide some humorous touches which benefit the movie.
62. From Beyond (1986) Blu-ray 5.5/10
Fun story with lots of goo and gore. Everything is well done but I think I would have preferred a bit less bombast at times.
63. Panic (1982)* Blu-ray 4/10
Killer ugly roams the streets! Muddled plot, sloppy movie making, and an only fair monster in this Italian creature feature.
64. A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988) (A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection) Blu-ray 6/10
Some really twisted dreams as Freddy looks for new blood.

October 19
65. The Evil (1978)* (Roger Corman's Cult Classics Double Feature) 6.5/10
Good haunted house story isn't subtle but has great interior and exterior sets and an increasing level of strange and deadly, if standard, phenomena. The acting is fine and the end is really bizarre.
66. The Devil Commands (1941) 7/10
Great B-movie has Karloff playing a scientist trying to communicate with his dead wife. Karloff shines, there's some moody photography, and the lab set is bizarre - truly weird science in action.
67. Next of Kin (1982)* Blu-ray 8/10
A young woman returns to her former home after the death of her mother. Often used basic situation but extremely well executed with good acting, great camera work, and an effective soundtrack. Very suspenseful and atmospheric.
68. The House on Tombstone Hill aka The Dead Come Home (1989)* Blu-ray 4.5/10
Basic setup is like The Evil with a less interesting plot but more blood. There's less plot here than in most slashers and the makeup for an old woman character is subpar but the kills and the gore effects are good enough to maintain interest.

October 20
69. Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932) (Universal The Bela Lugosi Collection) 6/10
Bela is good in this slightly creaky movie. Very good cinematography provides a lot of atmosphere.
70. The Raven (1935) (Universal The Bela Lugosi Collection) 7/10
Lugosi at his maddest. Karloff shines as the conflicted killer. A wild finish.
71. Die Hard Dracula (1998)* (Brentwood Power of Evil 4 Movie Set) 4.5/10
Silly, sometimes stupid, often weird I got some good laughs out of this. Bruce Glover as Van Helsing makes the movie and there are some great scenes in Prague near the beginning.
72. The Broken (2008)* (After Dark Horrorfest III Collection) 7/10
Well built tension involving partial amnesia and increasing feelings that "things are not right" kept me on the edge of my seat. Lack of at least some explanation of why things happened left me feeling a little unsatisfied. The journey was fun though.

October 21
73. C.H.U.D. (1984) Blu-ray 7/10
A good buildup and well designed and effectively used creatures make this a fun if predictable movie. 5.6
74. Audrey Rose (1977)* Blu-ray 5/10
A well made film with a good first part but the last part which is a lengthy trial kept pulling me out of the movie due to the unbelievable courtroom antics which had nothing to do with the case being tried. I'm no lawyer but I can't imagine a judge conducting a trial this way and the defense's final experiment made no legal sense at all.
75. Leprechaun in the Hood (2000)* (Leprechaun The Complete Movie Collection) Blu-ray 4/10
I didn't care for this one that much. There seemed to be a nastier tone than in previous movies and for the most part the humor just wasn't that funny.
76. Dear Dead Delilah (1972)* Blu-ray 6/10
Predictable plot and stock characters but a crew of good actors lead by Agnes Mooehead brings life and a lot of fun to this almost lighthearted film. Except for the blood and various detached body parts this could have been a TV movie.

October 22
77. Scarecrows (1988)* Streaming Amazon 5/10
Well armed crooks vs. killer scarecrow and a zombie or two. Pretty good. The scarecrows are good and creepy as is the old house and graveyard sets. Lots of action and blood and some characters turn out to be surprisingly likable. (Scarecrows)
78. The Breed (2006)* Streaming Amazon 5.5/10
Above average survival story of friends trapped on an isolated island by a pack of vicious dogs. Not many surprises in the story but the action is good some of the escape attempts are interesting. Good characters with the women pulling their weight in the fight. (Dogs)
79. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) Blu-ray 6/10
Not like the original but still bloody and very bizarre and very loud. Good finish.

October 23
80. Blood Hook (1986)* Blu-ray 4.5/10
Goofy slasher concerns death by fish hooks in the Wisconsin woods. Generally fun but is too long for it's own good.
81. Rabid (1986) Blu-ray 6/10
Sort of a silly premise to start with but it builds tension well, offers some grim possibilities for disease control and has a good conclusion.
82. The Beast of the Yellow Night (1986)* (VCI Scream Theater) 4/10
Some OK parts are interspaced with some pretty slow going parts. Not a chore to watch but even the beast makeup is just OK. Some of the dialog is silly when it tries to be profound.
83. A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989) (A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection) Blu-ray 5.5/10
Things are getting stretched a little thin in Freddy-land although there are still some cool images. Even Freddy seems a bit tired in this one.

October 24
84. The Ghoul (1933) 5.5/10
Karloff is good but doesn't really have that much to do. Some good atmospheric shots and sets. Annoying comedy relief.
(British)
85. The Wife Killer aka Death Kiss (1974)* 5/10
A man hires a serial rapist/murder to kill his wife. OK giallo type movie but not too much blood and the killer is known form the start. There is a mysterious plot to unravel though and some decent nudity. (Greece)
86. The House That Screamed (1969)* Blu-ray 7/10
Extended version. Very good story of students disappearing from a girl's boarding school. There aren't many kills but they are really well done and the stuff in between holds interest. The ending isn't surprising but I didn't guess it. (Spain)
87. The Devil's Nightmare (1971)* Blu-ray 6/10
A stranded tourist bus, an old castle, satanic forces. Good interior sets and eerie atmosphere set the stage for a series of sometimes clever deaths. Effective makeup and score help the effort. (Belgium)
88. The Lift (1983)* Blu-ray 7/10
Something a little bit different with a few scares and a very exciting finale. The scenes in the elevator shaft were especially creepy. I've always found places like that very unsettling. (Netherlands)

October 25
89. Deadly Instinct (1997)* Streaming Amazon 3.5/10
A leather clad babe and a horny monster with big teeth fall to earth in a meteorite. Mayhem follows. And stupidity, lots of stupidity. Fun, though, just to see what dumb thing will happen next and there's some nudity and an Ok monster.
90. The House of 1,000 Corpses (2003)* Blu-ray 5.5/10
Weird and twisted. Fairly well made but with some annoying directorial quirks and becomes derivative (a homage?) after a while. I liked the beginning the best. Gross as opposed to scary.
91. As Above, So Below (2014)* Blu-ray 6.5/10
Good crawl through the Paris catacombs has some fascinating images, some good scares, and a few genuinely creepy parts but still, it's shaky-cam and I don't really like shaky-cam.
92. Dawn of the Mummy (1981)* Streaming Amazon 5/10
A mummy, models, and zombie minions falls a little short of expectations. It seems to take forever for the mummy and friends to get going but the creatures and the models look good and the end is fun.

October 26
93. Legend of the Mummy (1998)* Streaming Amazon 5/10
Sort of complicated sometimes confusing plot, the mummy has a very traditional look, which I liked, but there isn't enough made of it. Not scary but it held my interest.
94. The Bad Seed (1956)* 7/10
Evil child story focusses on the effect on the mother. Violence isn't shown, only discussed and there is a relentless build up of tension. The end is quite shocking. Very well done.
95. Scared Stiff (1986)* Blu-ray 5/10
A psychiatrist, a singer, and her young son moved into a cursed colonial mansion. Weird stuff happens. Standard story, sometimes a little unclear, and the effects are a mixed bag. There is a good creature and kind of a wild finish.
96. Freddy's Dead The Final Nightmare (1985) (A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection) Blu-ray 6/10
Interesting story with some bizarre ideas and we learn more about Freddy's background.

October 27
97. Creepy Tales: Girls Night Out (2003)* (Brentwood Power of Evil 4 Movie Set) 5/10
Low budget with generally poor acting and three interesting but long tales (movie runs almost two hours) introduced by a TV horror host kind of guy. I liked the second one the best even though I guessed the twist. The third was also good but could have been cut a bit.
98. Escapes (1986)* (DF 6/10
Vincent Price delivers five stories plus the wrap around he does. All are well done and the stories vary in quality but I found most to be clever and fun if mild as far as horror goes.
99. Ferocious Planet (2011)* (Maneater Series Triple Feature) 5.5/10
Fun SYFY movie about accidental travel to another dimension. Good action but I wish there had been more variety in the creatures.

October 28
100. Nightwish (1989)* Blu-ray 6/10
University researchers examine a house famous for paranormal activity. Creepy, strange and a little twisted at times with just enough gooey goodness. The story doesn't always make sense and I didn't care for the end but the actors are convincing if a bit over the top at times. (Seance)
101. The Changeling (1989) Blu-ray 8/10
This has long been one of my favorite ghost stories and it's good to see that it still holds up. Not super scary but chilling in spots and very absorbing.
102. The House by the Cemetery (1989)* Blu-ray 6/10
A professor moves his family into a house formerly occupied by a colleague who recently committed suicide. Periods of suspense and intense gore interspaced with a story that doesn't always hang together.
103. Grave Encounters (1988)* Streaming Amazon 5/10
OK story about a TV crew in an abandoned asylum doesn't use too much shaky-cam but only had a few small scares. Strange things happen but some were almost too overt to be scary. Or something. Maybe I'm burning out.

October 29
104. Tenebre (1982) Blu-ray 7.5/10
Good mystery, bloody murders, stylishly filmed, and an outrageous (in a good way) finale.
105. Black Christmas (1974) Blu-ray 7.5/10
Not much gore but full of suspense and a sustained creepy atmosphere and great work from the cast. Killer POV shots and dim lighting along with the soundtrack add a lot. I usually don't like this kind of ending but here it's chilling.
106. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986)* 7/10
Grim and dark with some gruesome scenes but fascinating. Based somewhat on a real serial killer. Michael Rooker is very good as Henry.
107. Seven Deaths in the Cat's Eye (1973)* 5/10
Deaths follow the return of a young woman to her aunts castle. Part gothic, part giallo with a dash of sleaze and a gorilla in a cage. Some good sets. Entertaining.
108. Twisted Nightmare (1987)* 4/10
Friends return to a camp where a tragedy occurred two years ago in this below average slasher. There's no mystery to the killer's identity, many kills just happen, the bgm is often just annoying and the plot is weak even compared to other slashers but it's not unwatchable. There's a good fire stunt near the beginning and plentiful and varied boobage.

October 30
109. Black Magic Rites (1974)* Blu-ray 5/10
A cult uses hearts and eyes from virgins to keep a dead witch going until Satan can make her immortal. There are one or more vampires too, gore, and lots and lots of bare breasts. Sections of the movie make sense within themselves but overall, I don't know. Some striking images though. Pretty strange stuff.
110. The Possession of Michael King (2014)* Streaming Amazon 7.5/10
After his wife's death a disbeliever tries to get possessed to prove to himself that the supernatural is real. Very good, very different possession story has lots of chills and scares and a great performance by lead Shane Johnson.
111. Anabelle (2014)* Blu-ray 6/10
Good story about a demonic doll has scares but some of them seem forced. Also not much of a backstory to piece together which I always enjoy in a supernatural story.
112. Wes Craven's New Nightmare (1994) (A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection) Blu-ray 7/10
Freddy's back more evil and scarier than ever in a clever story with lots of old friends. Spectacular ending works for the most part although a few effects are showing their age.

October 31
113. Werewolf of London (1935) (The Wolf Man Complete Legacy Collection) Blu-ray 6.5/10
114. The Mummy's Shroud (1967) 6/10
115. Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954) (Creature From the Black Lagoon Complete Legacy Collection) Blu-ray 7.5/10
116. Halloween: H20 (1998) (Halloween the Complete Collection Deluxe Edition) Blu-ray 7/10
117. Tales of Halloween (2015) Blu-ray 7/10
118. Queen of Blood (1966) Blu-ray 6.5/10
119. Blood Beast from Outer Space aka Night Caller from Outer Space (1965) 5/10

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

Goal: 50
Blue = Repeated Viewing
Green = 1st Time Viewing

Sept 30th
1)Child's Play ('19) - (BLU RAY) I learned a toy store is the last place you want to be when, you know, a murderous toy is after you. When you think about it, everything in this movie is Andy's fault - he teaches Chucky to snarl, say cuss words, use a knife, and enjoying violence while watching graphic horror movies. I love how adorable Chucky is in the beginning, such as the scene in which he reminds Andy that he forgot his science book, only to have a toilet paper roll in his hand. 5/10
2)Ma - (BLU RAY) I learned that next time, you should just party at your parents house when they are away. 6/10

Oct 1st
3)We Summon the Darkness - (BLU RAY) I learned that anyone who responds by seeing a corpse in their kitchen and proceeds to eat a snack and take a drink has likely killed before. 5/10

Oct 2nd
4)The Undertaker - (BLU RAY) I learned there is a reason morticians are antisocial. Features no real protagonist and jarring editing, and a scene with the weakest blows to a human head ever. 2/10

Oct 3rd
5)28 Days Later - (BLU RAY) I learned that an intake of only sugar products while running from a host of ravenous humans will surely cause a crash and headaches, so eat properly in the apocalypse. 8/10
6)28 Weeks Later - (BLU RAY) I learned any article of clothing will block nerve gas. 5/10
7)Texas Chainsaw Massacre ('74) - (BLU RAY) I learned to remove any smeared blood from your vehicle for purposes other than sanitation 10/10

Oct 4th
8)Dream No Evil - (BLU RAY) I learned to always pack pentothal in my black bag when breaking up with a crazy girlfriend. 4/10
9)Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 - (BLU RAY) I learned an electric kitchen knife is a great tool for filleting human skin in addition to carving your next Thanksgiving turkey. An absolutely bat-shit insane sequel. 6/10
10)The Unnamable - (BLU RAY) I learned not to argue with a literature major, especially one who has been published. A by the number horror film with minor Lovecraft lore thrown in. 4/10

Oct 5th
11)Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3 - (BLU RAY) I learned that although it's tough to keep your calm while being threatened with a psycho wielding a gun, but try to stick to the route planned out ahead of time and not take the road you just learned of five minutes ago. A good middle ground of the horror of 1 and the craziness of 2, but nothing spectacular. 4/10

Oct 6th
12)Texas Chainsaw Massacre 4: Next Generation - (BLU RAY) I learned to chose camo for your next prom dress color which will help camouflage you while hiding in the woods when running from crazy tow drivers. There was a lot that left me scratching my head, and one I likely would have skipped if not trying to watch the franchise in its entirety. 2/10
13)The Spell - (BLU RAY) I learned that psychic power is like IQ - some people have a high IQ, others low, but everyone has an IQ! PSYCHIC FIGHT!!! What ever happened to these good made for television horror films? 6/10

Oct 7th
14)Deep Rising - (BLU RAY) I learned to stay the fuck away from luxury cruise ships. A fun action/horror hybrid with CGI that doesn't age well unfortunately 5/10
15)Underwater - (BLU RAY) I learned discovering and potentially naming a new aquatic species sounds exciting until they start trying to eat you. A tense movie throughout, could have used a little less CONSTANT humor from TJ Miller though 8/10

Oct 8th
16)Leatherface - (BLU RAY) I learned dead animal carcasses are great hiding spots while on the run from police dogs. 4/10

Oct 9th
17)Asylum - (BLU RAY) I learned to lock a freezer if you're going to keep a chopped up human corpse in it. Really fun horror anthology with predictable ending, however 8/10

Oct 10th
18)Elvira: Mistress of the Dark - (BLU RAY) I learned to not mix up your cook books with your books of witchcraft 6/10

Oct 11th
19)Dark August - (BLU RAY) I learned that while recovering from a traumatic event in your life is hard enough, it can be made even more difficult when curses are involved. Good slow burn type movie that plays with paranoia in someone trying to move on with their life after a horrific accident. 6/10
20)Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (BLU RAY) I learned that sometimes, it's a good idea to have security escort your big, homicidal employee out of the building after a firing. 3/10
21)Hellfest - (BLU RAY) I learned that ignoring a stalker until they get bored DOES NOT work. There simply is not enough horror films that take place in a horror amusement park, so this was quite a surprise for me this year. 7/10

Oct 12th
22)Texas Chainsaw Massacre ('03) - (BLU RAY) I learned it's time to get the hell out of anywhere you are when you start finding human teeth on the ground. 5/10
23)VFW - (BLU RAY) I learned a person make poor choices when they got titty bar on the mind. Sure, it's a copy of Assault on Precinct 13, but damn it's fun. 7/10

Oct 13th
24)Texas Chainsaw - (3D BLU RAY) I learned to not trust a stranger alone in your home as they will not only rob you blind, they will also let loose your crazy family member. 5/10

Oct 14th
25)Prevenge - (BLU RAY) I learned homicidal fetuses HATE that calming, relaxing technique shit. 6/10
26)Snatchers - (BLU RAY) I learned breaking apart an Aztec fertility idol will make a person lose ALL their sex appeal. I loathed this one, between the Diablo Cody like dialogue, the quick edits and sound designs, it was a chore to get through. 2/10

Oct 15th
27)Killer Klowns From Outer Space - (BLU RAY) I learned not to accept a challenge from a short person contesting me to "put your dukes up". It's a trap! Such fun, could watch this endlessly and not get tired of it. Can't think of a movie more deserving of a sequel or tv series (so long as the Chiodo Bros return for costume and make up design) 9/10

Oct 16th
28)Abominable - (BLU RAY) I learned that bigfoot hates the sound of car horns. Not sure what Jeffrey Combs and Lance Henrickson were doing in this film as they were killed off in one scene. 3/10
29)Don't Go In The Woods - (BLU RAY) I learned to bring a sleeping bag that you can poke a hole in with your finger for your next camping trip. An awful mess of a film that is a must watch for all the wrong reasons, most notably the cartoonish soundtrack. 3/10

Oct 17th
30)Zombie - (BLU RAY) I learned when barricading a door, be sure to secure both the top AND bottom of the door. 8/10
31)The Child - (BLU RAY) I learned to look for the source during a local zombie outbreak - the young girl who refers to them as "friends". Some genuinely creepy images make this my favorite film in the American Horror Project vol 2 boxset 6/10
32)Midsommar - (BLU RAY) I learned not to piss on any ancestral trees. 9/10
33)The Sacrament - (BLU RAY) I learned that any place in which an older man asks you to call him "Father" is either a crazy sex club or a cult. Either way, you should get the hell out. Surprise cult double feature! 5/10

Oct 18th
34)Amityville Horror ('79) - (BLU RAY) ?

Oct 19th
35)Amityville Horror 2: Possession - (BLU RAY) I learned to try at least one more number after unsuccessfully being able to phone your priest to save your possessed family member. A complete change from everything that makes the first great, this one goes full Poltergeist with entire room's contents being thrown around. Very odd (and greatly unneeded) incest angel between the older brother and sister. 2/10

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

*indicates first time viewing

October 1st

1. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Chapter Twenty-One: The Hellbound Heart*, Chapter Twenty-Two: Drag Me to Hell*
You could watch this show with zero sound and zero captions and still be satisfied. The amount of Halloween visuals will make you squirt. What? Squirt blood, you pervs.

October 2nd

2. Casper (1995)
#WhiteGhostsMatter

3. The 'Burbs (1989)
At this point in my American life, I pray that my neighbors are the Klopeks

October 3rd

4. Ghostbusters (1984)
Amazon received my funds after watching this. My son wants to be a ghostbuster for Halloween.

5. The Lodge (2019)*
If The Shining and Mean Girls mated, this would be it's fetus. But like, a very boring fetus. Is it real? Is it confused? No one cares unless it's Wednesday and we need to wear pink for our sins.

6. The Craft (1996)
Nancy is so freaky that it got me out of sleeping with my husband for at least a week.

October 6th

7. Death of Me (2020)*
I couldn't tell if I was the one hallucinating or the characters. Was that really Luke Hemsworth??? Cause I swear that was a fat Matt Damon. The moral of the story is: you can't trust anyone... except professional movie critics. They were right, this movie reeks.

October 9th

8. The Curse of Audrey Earnshaw (2020)*
There's creepy and then there's awkward. I'd throw this one in the awkward bucket. Not as awkward as other stuff out there in the movie world, but I spent more time saying, "uhhhh??" than "AHHHHHHH!" Anywho, if you're pro-life this will be an absolute delight for you. I had no idea plyers were so versatile.
9. Relic (2020)*
Dementia meets supernatural. Supernatural meets dementia? Highly contagious skin disease? You figure it out. I actually enjoyed approximately 75% of this, but my biggest takeaway was that I really want to be the old lady everyone is TERRIFIED of when I grow up. Fear me, peasants.
10. Ghostbusters II (1989)
Bill Murray's humor is right up my alley. I can't get enough of his sarcasm, douchebagness and hatred of other people. I want him to be my father.
11. Hubie Halloween (2020)*
Finally, the Adam Sandler I know and love has returned in this glorious comedy. The next time someone asks me how old I am, I will first confirm if they mean in human years, and then I will respond with, "age is just a state of mind.... that's why I played T-ball until I was 25." I'm also going to start wearing graphic tees that say things like, "Kayaking gets me wet!"

October 10th
12. Beetlejuice (1998)
I had a friend over and his sweet Romanian self had never seen Beetlejuice, so we had to fix that. He actually lol'd! That's a win.

October 11th
13. The Haunting of Bly Manor: The Great Good Place*, The Pupil*

14. Hotel Transylvania (2012)*


October 12th
15. Hocus Pocus (1993)

October 16th
16. Unfriended (2014)*

Bad play fighting with a camera set too far away from it and just left running. This is NOT really a review - just a description. If you weren't in this movie, there's NO reason to watch it.
