If you're getting a little burned out on movies, try reading a horror novel or novella.

If you hover your mouse over the "Liked" button and click 'Get Notifications' this should fix the problem.

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

Goals:
Spoiler:
Universal Monsters Collection [27/31]
Critters Collection [1/4]
Jaws 1- Revenge [1/4]
15 First Time Viewings [/15]
5 films in 3-D [0/5]


































List:
Spoiler:
Sep 30th After Dark:
1. The Hamiltons [tt0443527] ☼ - Concept was fine. But the set pieces, technical execution and performances were lacking.
2. Love at Stake [tt0093443] ☼ - I thought this was supposed to be funny. Left me disappointed.
Oct 1:
3. Crawl [tt8364368] - Still enjoyed this on a second watch, but I still don't love it.
4. Circle [tt3118452] ☼ - The concept seemed thin. I was however surprised at how effective some of the tense moments were. But overall it felt pretty empty.
5. Sleepy Hollow [tt0162661] - Still enjoy it. Fun seeing Casper Van Dien again.
6. Tales from the Hood 2 [tt8403680]
Oct 2:
7. Jaws [tt0073195]
8. Bram Stoker's Dracula [tt0103874]
9. Zombieland [tt1156398]
Oct 3:
10. Elvira Mistress of the Dark [tt0095088] ☼ - I watched this after waking up far too early. I probably should have watched something I've seen before because I fell asleep and had to go watch part of it again so it made it a little disjointed, but still goofy fun overall.
11. Scream of the Wolf [tt0072128]
12. The Beast Must Die [tt0071200] ☼ - I enjoyed the style of this. The music was a lot of fun. I enjoyed the set up and even the Werewolf check near the end. Good time. Darn it, now I need to get the Blu-ray.
13. Scare Me [tt10126434]
14. The Babysitter [tt4225622] - I know reaction to this is mixed, but I still find it fun. Weaving and Amell keep it moving and entertaining. Added bonus, the wife enjoyed it.
15. Road Games (2015) [tt2929652] - I'm not sure if it is the poor sleep last night, but I was actually surprised with this story.
Oct 4:
16. My Bloody Valentine [tt0082782]
Oct 5:
17. Happy Death Day [tt5308322] - I still like this. It is no high art, but it is fun. The kills and montage work with the tone of the movie. If anything, the resolution just feels too easy and clean.
18. Hereditary [tt7784604] - I think this was successful at what it was doing, I just don't know that I care for what it was going for.
Oct 6:
19. Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever [tt0961722] - Winston is back. It has more people, more goop, and it is blander. I don't think I'll need to revisit this franchise at this point. But hey, at least Rider Strong got some work.
20. The Mummy (2017) [tt2345759] - There is quite a lot to enjoy here. They obviously put a lot of money into this picture and you see it in the visuals. It just suffers from so many things. The pacing is off, probably too many ideas thrown at the wall. While I liked Hyde, probably should have saved more of that organization until later in the shared universe. Too much, too early in a movie that just doesn't flow incredibly well.
21. Critters [tt0090887]
22. Dracula (1931) [tt0021815]
23. Bubba The Redneck Werewolf [tt3710944]

25. The Car [tt0075809]
26. Frankenstein (1931) [tt0021884]

28. The Shed [tt8236366]
Oct 9:
29. Planet of the Vampires [tt0059792]
30. The Invisible Man (1933) [tt0024184]

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

This will be my 15th consecutive year participating in the "October Horror Movie Challenge!"
Total Horror Movies Before This Year = 538.75

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

September 30, 2020 {after sundown}
1. Horror of Dracula (1958) - The first Hammer Dracula film - with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, no less. Great stuff!

October 1, 2020
2. Village of the Damned (1960) - This one's a classic; given the time period, its opening sequences are impressively shot.

October 2, 2020
3. Cat Girl (1957) - Barbara Shelley stars in this British production - good gothic build-up that unravels thanks to one of the most clueless doctors in cinematic history.

October 3, 2020
4. Svengoolie: Dracula (2019 / 1931)
5. Svengoolie: The Invisible Man (2019 / 1933) - I'll be using this challenge as an opportunity to clean up my DVR. Two Universal classics hosted by Svengoolie today!

October 4, 2020
6. Svengoolie: Werewolf of London (2020 / 1935)
7. Svengoolie: The Wolf Man (2019 / 1941) - Two more hosted by Svengoolie - I went with a Universal werewolf double-feature today.

October 5, 2020
8. Cry of the Werewolf (1944) - I enjoyed this old Columbia B-movie, despite some awkward editing and stiff acting.

October 6, 2020
9. Knives Out (2019) - Daniel Craig is great in this thriller, though the storyline gets a bit convoluted after a while.

October 7, 2020
10. The Prodigy (2019) - The trailer was really cool, but the actual film failed to deliver.

October 8, 2020
11. The Gorgon (1964) - A great cast (Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, and Doctor Who's Patrick Troughton) star in this Hammer period piece.

October 9, 2020
12. The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953) - This is perhaps my favorite Ray Harryhausen film.

October 10, 2020
13. Svengoolie: House of Wax (2019 / 1953)
14. Svengoolie: The Tingler (2018 / 1959) - Two entries from Vincent Price's filmography - hosted by Svengoolie!

October 11, 2020
15. Svengoolie: It Came From Outer Space (2020 / 1953)
16. Svengoolie: This Island Earth (2020 / 1955) - A double feature of vintage Universal sci-fi - hosted by Svengoolie!

October 12, 2020
17. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (2010) - Katie Holmes fights photosensitive subterranean creatures. Enough said.

October 13, 2020
18. The Deadly Mantis (1957) - A Universal production that hits upon just about every 1950s giant bug movie trope you can think of.

October 14, 2020
19. Case 39 (2009) - A Hollywood cast (Renee Zellweger, Bradley Cooper, etc.) appear in this mediocre supernatural mystery.

October 15, 2020
19.25. Lonesome Ghosts (1937)
19.5. Trick or Treat (1952)
20. Room on a Broom (2012) - Several animated shorts my son has been enjoying - the first two are vintage Disney cartoons while the last is a more modern adaptation of the children's book involving a witch.

October 16, 2020
21. Before I Wake (2016) - This supernatural flick far exceeded my expectations going on; it's a creative story with some clever plot developments.

October 17, 2020
22. Svengoolie: The Mummy (2019 / 1932)
23. Svengoolie: The Mummy's Hand (2019 / 1940) - The first two entries in Universal's Mummy series - hosted by Svengoolie!

October 18, 2020
24. Svengoolie: The Curse of Frankenstein (2020 / 1957)
25. Svengoolie: The Revenge of Frankenstein (2018 / 1958) - A two-pack of Hammer Frankenstein films - hosted by Svengoolie!

October 19, 2020
26. Bird Box (2018) - Sandra Bullock stars in this well-made, albeit grim and overlong, postapocalyptic thriller.

October 20, 2020
27. Midsommar (2019) - Ari Aster's follow-up to Hereditary is also chilling, immersive, and memorable.

October 21, 2020
28. Billy the Kid Versus Dracula (1966) - David Carradine returns to his vampire role in this lame genre mash-up.

October 22, 2020
29. The Evil of Frankenstein (1964) - Peter Cushing has another solid outing as Dr. Frankenstein in this Hammer horror film.

October 23, 2020
30. Monsters Inc (2001) - My son has gotten into this movie - I like how the sushi house is called Harryhausen's.

October 24, 2020
31. Village of the Giants (1965) - Aggressively juvenile installment of 1960s youth culture masquerading as an HG Wells adaptation.
32. Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958) - Some unsavory characters populate this dumb cult classic.

October 25, 2020
33. Berserk (1967) - A good cast elevates this tawdry Joan Crawford thriller.
34. The Mole People (1956) - Incredibly silly Universal creature feature led by John Agar.

October 26, 2020
34.5. The Haunting of Bly Manor "The Great Good Place" (2020)
35. The Haunting of Bly Manor "The Pupil" (2020)
35.5 The Haunting of Bly Manor "The Two Faces, Part One" (2020) - My wife suggested we binge-watch this series on Netflix since it's trending. The ghost with the shining glasses is the most curious aspect so far.

October 27, 2020
36. The Haunting of Bly Manor "The Way It Came" (2020)
36.5 The Haunting of Bly Manor "The Altar of the Dead" (2020)
37. The Haunting of Bly Manor "The Jolly Corner" (2020) - We've made our way through three more episodes. I like the series - though more recently, the story feels more fragmented.

October 28, 2020

October 29, 2020

October 30, 2020

October 31, 2020

Total # of movies = ??
All-Time 15-Year Total = ???

September 30th
1. Waxwork [1988] new! imdb Blu-Ray
"Raw meat. You do like raw meat?"
An interesting horror/comedy. I wanted to like it more than I did. The idea of bringing to life all various horror icons is such a fun idea. David Warner is fantastic as always. I wish he would have been in it more. You could tell that the fight scene at the end was rushed and was confirmed on imdb.com trivia.

October 2nd
2. Waxwork II: Lost in Time [1992] new! imdb Blu-Ray
Don't worry, it's only a flesh wound…
I love any kind of time travel story. This was an intersting sequel to Waxwork. It was a bit more tongue-in-cheek than the first one and I get that it's supposed to be fun, but some of the gags just missed for me. Once again, though, a unique/intersting idea.
3. Zombieland commentary [2009] imdb Blu-Ray
A solid commentary. The director's voice and cadence make him sound like he's an idiot, but he definitely knows what he's doing. Jessie Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson are decent in their comments. Typically actors are terrible in commentaries, but I think it helped that the director and writer's were in there. Would have liked to hear more from the writers.

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



Sep 30th
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



1.) The Lure (2015) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Polish mermaid musical horror comedy period piece. Watching it I was struck by the notion that this must feel what its like to be on drugs. The movie shifts so seamlessly from the beautiful to the bizarre, it's fascinating just to look at. The songs are odd but catch the ears just enough to be mostly enjoyable. The plot follows 2 mermaids that decide to employ their siren talents at a kind of sleazy night club. They sing, they dance, they eat people. If you are looking for a European style mix of The Shape Of Water meets Let Me In with just a touch of Frankenhooker than look no further. A weird start to the challenge.

Wife walk by comment: Are you sure that's horror, creepy?




2.) Trailer Trauma (2016) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: You know, it took awhile before I gave the Trailer Compilation subgenre it's fair share. But in the last few years I have started getting into them, not only for what's contained but as a discovery device as well. This collection from Garagehouse Pictures struck me as a bit average. It's cover and title would make you think that it was all horror trailers but there was a decent amount of grindhouse action trailers as well, which is fine but I came out feeling a bit duped for the experience. Decent quality of trailers there was 65 and I knew about 10 or so of the titles and had actually only seen 1. From this compilation I added: Dawn Of The Mummy, Kill & Homebodies to my need to acquire list. Otherwise it was ok, could have used a few more theater cartoon/ad interludes though.

B-1.) Dogfish Head: Punkin Ale (Delaware) - 2020 vs 2018

2020 Thoughts: Has a friendly floral hoppy scent, wow, for a second there I thought I was starting with the aged one. Smooth with a deep liquorish flavor with a bit of a hoppy bite that peppers the sides of your mouth. Hard to taste the pumpkin, does taste expensive though. Letting it linger on your tounge does being out some burnt barley and caramel notes. And as it warms it definitely hits that fall flavor with a decisively bitter-ing aftertaste. But, unfortunately, I just don’t taste the pumpkin... OK closer to room temperature I am getting that vegetable pumpkin taste along with some deepening caramel notes. Man I should have just had this at room temp or slightly chilled from the beginning.

(4 out of 5)

2018 Thoughts:
Stronger smell this time, like the new one but sweeter with a bit of a pear/grape aroma (also darker and more opaque in the glass). So even chilled you are tasting the pumpkin right off the bat with the 2018. It has a sharper more hoppy mouth feel. Surprisingly more carbonated tasting. Much lighter tasting, with a slight fruity taste and a slightly bitter followup. Decent or maybe even slightly better cold vs the 2020 but the warmer flavor is off. I must admit, 2 years might be too long for aging on this one. Sweeter slightly sour aftertaste that seems to leave a brief waxy coat on the inside of your mouth, what am I doing with my life?

3.) Howl (2015) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Low budget werewolf faire that has a decent start with a small commuter train in the English country side breaking down and being assaulted by lycanthrope. Unfortunately it is otherwise by the numbers and lacks a sense of pacing, acting and plot. Additionally the frequently CGI werewolves look terrible, you might have guessed that by the cover but the picture on the cover is not representative and surprisingly somewhat better looking than werewolves in the movie proper. Overall I found it a bit subpar but it was a Dollar Tree item so for a dollar...

(2.5 out of 5)





4.) Pyewacket (2017) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Really overselling it here with this sticker on the slipcover "See the film that was banned in two countries". A passable low budget psychological/witchcraft affair but that sticker made sure I was going to be disappointed. The story follows a high school girl (who looks more like a post graduate student) who's mom is moving her out into thew country and away from her Wiccan friends. What's a girl to do but summon a demon to kill her mom and then immediately regret it. Has a Walking Dead alum playing mother dear and does have several sequences that did genuinely strike me as creepy but was overall too vanilla. I wonder why I added this to my Amazon wishlist? Who gushed over this movie to the point of me buying it? I need to value that persons opinion a little less.

(3 out of 5)





5.) The Invisible Man (2020) (4K UHD)*

My Thoughts: Now that how you update a classic, even if Kevin Bacon already did it. Of all the versions I do like this conveyance of invisibility the best though, I was getting strong Ant Man vibes here and I loved it. Can this be the Dark Universe reboot? Although now that I think about it everything has already been made, hasn't it? Tom Cruise Mummy, Dracula Untold, The Shape Of Water, the Del Toro Wolfman, there is nothing left... How was the climax of this little film so much better than the huge Mummy one?

(4 out of 5)

My Daughters Thoughts: It’s good, why are you writing it? Tell me why? I loved it. At first I thought it was pretty normal and then it started getting a little scarier and scarier and scarier.. until the end. Thats the end of my review.





6.) Zombie Strippers (2008) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Set in a dystopian 2017 where President Bush, now in his 4th term, is running out of soldiers for wars and decides to employ a re-animative virus that allows dead soldiers to keep on killing. A bite victim gets out and lands in a Strip Club and then its pretty much the movie that the name would imply. The conceit to this zombie virus is that it affects the brains of women much slower than men allowing to continue working the pole. This is very goofy, has a ton of nudity and some crazy over the top gore. Despite all of the I don't think I would have really cared for this movie when it initially came out but watching it now, I think I kinda dug it. And... I think I am going to have watch the audio commentary.. the audio commentary for Zombie Strippers... Is this real life?

(3.5 out of 5)





B-2.) Anthem Brewing Company: Oktoberfest (Oklahoma)*

My Thoughts: Has an overly hoppy IPA-ish scent that skews a little dish soap-y. What is this monstrosity? An IPA Oktoberfest? Thats missing the whole point of what makes an Oktoberfest an amazing beer! Flavor-wise you get the IPA on top and it kind of mellows into an Oktoberfest flavor while keeping your mouth full of bitter. It legit taste just like if you poured an IPA and an Oktoberfest in the same glass. It’s not a taste I am super offended by but it is a concept I am super offended by.

(1 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste:
Very bitter, mild, it's not that bad flavor but doesn't feel any fizz. Bad aftertaste.





7.) House At The End Of The Street (2012) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Watch Jennifer Lawrence do things other girls in horror movies always do. Maybe a little fresher back in 2012 but I found it to be pretty by the numbers. Lots of heavy tropes at works here but to be fair they do work. Even not being super surprising it is an enjoyable watch, also always fun to see bigger actors in older horror films.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Thoughts:
That's a good movie, I like it but always listen to mom. Thats a good one. I did not expect that middle, I thought that girl... the first one is the killer but oh well.

8.) Commentary For Zombie Strippers (2008) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: This track has the director, Robert Englund, the Mexican janitor and of course Jenna Jameson. I watched this in combination for the trashy trivia track and it was great, in fact I think I liked it better this time around then my first view! Great track, everyone is have fun, very talkative. Englund dominates with a near constant stream of jokes, Jenna Jameson loves to talk about the makeup and being naked, it just has everything you would want from a track on a movie like Zombie Stripers. How does this have a commentary when none of my Tarantino films do? If a Blu-Ray of Killer Tongue ever gets made I do hope they get Robert in for the commentary.

(4 out of 5)





9.) The Final Girls (2015) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: A freak accident Pleasentville's a group of modern day horror enthusiast into a Friday the 13th analog where they must use their horror movie knowledge to survive. I resisted this one at first, it came out during a wave of 80'sploitation and it has a rather bland look to it. But it's a perfect Friday the 13th companion piece I loved all the characters and the weird interactions with their 80's counterparts. Also I must confess anything with a parent kid component seems to hit for me anymore. I really really liked this. I would almost have given it a perfect score but there was a few parts in the middle that felt a little too much like a comedy sketch show and the decision to go PG-13 really hampered what could have been. Boobs and drugs being such a staple of 80's slashers you really feel their absence here. But you know despite that it was a super enjoyable watch and current best in challenge (although we are only on day 2). Oh and I almost forgot this is #972 on the 'They Shoot Zombies, Don't They?' list.

(4.5 out of 5)





10.) Crawl (2019) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Gators in the street, gators in the gas station, gators in the hallway! They do not gyp you on the alligators in this movie. This play more exploitation than horror and man must have been a nightmare to film, disappointed that there is no audio commentary on. Kaya Scodelario (traitor from The Maze Runner trilogy) goes to check on her dad (rat brain from Battlefield Earth) right before a hurricane hits and unfortunately he lives next to a gator farm. It's hard to tell how much of this was funny on purpose, is Crawl in on the joke? I did find my suspension of disbelief stretched a little far here, not in that the situation wasn't plausible but it just seems I see nature shows with alligators fairly frequently and they seem like pretty lazy predators. I think I could repeal an alligator with a few tools. Also that end credits song, that just slaps you right in the face after watching that movie. I guess I liked it?

(3.5 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts:
It was good, it was better than Invisible Man. But it wasn’t scary to me. OK I am done.





B-3.) Marshal Brewing Company: Oktoberfest (Oklahoma) - 2020 can vs 2018 bottle

2020 Thoughts: Very pungent floral hops scent. It’s sour? I… I think this is a miss-bottle? This taste like a shandy or something… Well, the always inconsistent Marshal Brewing company has outdone themselves this year. I quite frankly don’t even know why I still buy their beer. I guess I am still living off a dream from back when they had an amazing Oktoberfest in 2014. Every year I give them another chance and every year I am seemingly disappointed in a unique and interesting way. Kudos for variety. Overall a tart flavor, pretty smooth with a lemon-y summer vibe. I mean WTF Marshal? It’s not a bad tasting beer but it is definitely not an Oktoberfest.

(2.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste:
Sour, some kind of fruit flavor but I don’t know what is it, no fizz at all, taste like straight vinegar, fruit vinegar drink.

2018 Thoughts: Liquorish scent, interesting. Well, it’s a lot closer to an Oktoberfest. Smooth creamy with just a little peppering of hops around the corners of your mouth that quickly dissipates. Very unique tasting, I think I am liking this, the caramel is there but it is a bitterer caramel flavor. A bit hard to qualify as an Oktoberfest but really hits fall notes, like a good campfire beer. As it gets warm that caramel flavor deepens, the barley starts coming in and it loses the bitterness. Now this is a great beer! Was 2018 another banner year for Marshal? Or was this a benefit of the aging process?

(4 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste:
Hmm, mild creamy, little fruity scent I like it.





11.) Invasion Of The Scream Queens (1992) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: Probably the worst Scream Queen retrospective. While there are a few interesting stories here and there and there is a bit of an interesting time-capsule vibe going on only the most rabid fan will be able to force their way though this amateur effort. Even as a bit of an aficionado myself I was quite bored thought-out and know that I will never be spinning this disc again. For anyone interested in the subject any other option will be better than this, preferably Screaming In High Heels but again literally anything else. For those sad souls who don't heed this advice be prepared for a terrible VHS transfer with a lovely analog hiss throughout and even worse second or more generation VHS insert shots from a small amount of the movies spoken about. Also hope you are a big fan of quite static interviews with awkward restarts where a cuts should be, no background music and topics that frequently venture way off topic but are kept in to keep run time up. If I had known at the time of purchase this was made by the guy who made Shark Exorcist I wouldn't have bothered.

12.) Monsterville: Cabinet Of Souls (2015) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: You know, this made for TV kids horror pastiche was actually not that bad. I expected to hate the actors and the plot and be pretty much just completely underwhelmed but I was, dare I say, entertained. I suppose that is in large part due to it being an actually R.L. Stine adaptation and not just some Goosebumps branded tripe. Now don't get me wrong, it is very very family freindly and there is overacting and a dance scene but it has good bones. A traveling Halloween carnival is essentially enslaving teens in order to staff their business and feed on their souls and only a Hayden Panettiere stand in can stop them. Not something I would have ever watched on my own but good view with the daughter as something to break up the heavier horror.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts:
I liked the movie, it was like a normal movie at first and we thought there was just like makeup on the people and then we know’s it was real. I still think the Alligator movie was better still.





13.) Annabelle Comes Home (2019) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Another chapter in the further adventures of Annabelle the haunted murder doll. Came in with low expectation after... well all the other Annabelle movies and I actually think I like this one the best. This takes place after the Conjuring and I think is the first of the Conjuring movies not to be a prequel to the first movie? This movie takes the Warrens out on assignment but stays home with their daughter and when a friend of the babysitter gets in the vault, all hell breaks loose. Lots of creepy but like most conjuring movies it's only creepy for a second, this falls into the horror action category almost. Liked the period setting and that they take the fatal flaw of the last 5 conjuring movies and basically fix it by having like 50 ghosts this time. The only problem is there is no where to go for this character at this point and you know there will be at least one more movie as this one did 10x it's budget. Maybe they could shoot into the future like Gremlins 2? The Warrens die they are bulldozing the house to build a shopping mall and Annabelle and all the other cursed items make their way into the mall. You could even have it be an 80's period piece and then that time frame can open up the stage for a VS crossover with another 80's name, call me Wan I have the script like half written over here.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts: It was good but I still think that alligator movie was better. I think the coolest haunted thing was Annabelle. Chucky is scarier than Annabelle, because it seems like Chucky kills people and Annabelle doesn’t really do anything as much.





B-4.) Elysian Brewing Company: The Great Pumpkin (Washington)*

My Thoughts: Odd scent, saffron? Candle shop? Low intensity hop intro with an odd fig taste on the back of the palate. I am getting liquorish and pear notes and a bit of pumpkin, not pumpkin spice but straight pumpkin. Certaintly a premium pumpkin beer flavor, I like it. Warmer and towards the end I am getting a slightly bitter caramel flavor. This beer was a good flavor ride.

(4.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste:
Smells like apple cider, little hoppy, mild, somehow smells soy sauce afterward. Pretty good.





14.) Beyond The Black Rainbow (2010) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Cited as one of the larger influences for Stranger Things, Beyond The Black Rainbow has a 70's style experimental vibe, is set in the 80's, has about 10 minutes of plot and a run time of 2 hours. I admit that it was visually very intriguing and I loved the ideas being and portrayed in this movie but my YouTube addled brain had a hard time with the pacing. With minor tweaks and no outside characters this movie is basically Stranger Things with a heavy dose of THX 1138. I would have liked it if there was an audio commentary on this one as I am genuinely intreated as to several of the particulars of this movie. But I also think that it was frequently just style over substance.

15.) The House Where Evil Dwells (1982) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Frequently delving into "so bad it's good territory" but unfortunately not staying there, The House Where Evil Dwells is about an American family that moves into a hunted traditional Japanese house where horned up ghost force them to relive their own brutal demise. I am not sure how I feel about this one, there is not quite enough here for a travelog horror, the ghosts are done in that 1960's style transparancy but It does have a near show saving evil crab attack. I am conflicted. It's an unusual mostly daytime culture clash but I think most people will get more out of the the American version of The Grudge (except for the lack of an onslaught of evil ghost crabs).

(2.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Thoughts:
It was great theme: Japanese old house, airport and everything like that... movie it’s ok. I am gonna guess what’s happen, and it’s not scary at all... can give 2.5 star.

(2.5 out of 5)





16.) Book Of Monsters (2018) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Ha, a Kickstarter movie. I was unaware of this property when it was being kicked but it is an intreating premise to let the kicker choose the plot point of the movie. Although I am not sure if I would have put my $32 in 2017 for the honor vs my $10 in 2019 for a copy of the movie. Is another IMDB credit worth $22? I generally liked the movie, it was a fun low budget affair with quite a few practical Lovecraftian monsters. The acting was not great but it had heart and the humor even hit for me a few times. It's not going to rock anybodies world but it was a decent flick. Also I think maybe I might give the cast commentary a go.

(3 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts:
That movie is pretty good, I don’t think it’s better or my least favorite movie compared to the alligator movie. I liked the girls with the black lipstick, thats my favorite character, and the Dad.





17.) Zeder (1983) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: I am counting this as a first time view as I have only seen the heavily cut Revenge of the Dead version of this movie and it was on VHS and I don't remember it. Which by the way; why would you ever go with this tile over Revenge of the Dead! Looking back it appears I watched that variant in my very first OHMC back in 2010. Seems like I noted the desire to pick up the longer Zeder cut, mission complete, 1 decade later. And as it would seem I dug this movie more this time around than I did back in 2010. I am a sucker for an ancient mystery being covered up by a covert group, especially if it is occult-y and set in Europe. High trash entertainment all the way here from the oddly out of place sounding music, to the over acting to the weird European.. everything. A fun watch with a touch zombies. On an ascetic note whoever made this terrible cover art should be let go, imagine the sales at Code Red if they actually put effort into their presentations.

(4 out of 5)





B-5.) Rhinelander Brewing Company: Oktoberfest(Wisconsin)*

My Thoughts: An alluringly mild hoppy aroma. A touch sour on the onset followed by a traditional but overly bitter Oktoberfest flavor profile. Yeah, too much of a lingering bitterness for an oktoberfest. This one does calm down a bit as it warms, especially when you are drinking without actively trying to taste it but still retains too much of the bitterness.

(2.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste:
Smells like really beer, very mild but aftertaste bitter. Taste like guys beer.





18.) Zombiology (2017) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: A decent zombie movie that is held back by its attempts to be different. I liked the characters, some of the Chinese comedy played for me and the zombies were on point. The outlandish bits, like the chicken mascot zombie originator or the anime cut ins prevent this from being something better. 2 losers have to overcome themselves to fight the zombie apocalypse in a hugely populated urban area, great. Giant chicken with exploding zombie eggs, meh. I had fun almost the whole time but this movie shot it's self in the foot.

19.) Gore Whore (1994) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: This is one of those movie that you buy for the title or avoid because of the title. It's one of those titles that evokes a grimy disgusting image without having to know anything abut the movie, like Street Trash or Let Them Die Slowly. Now the movie on the other hand... does have nudity... so there's that. Basically if you see a female actress this movie there is a 100% change that she will be doing full frontal and if you see a guy there is a 25% chance he is going to get his dick ripped off. It's made for video garbage that doesn't skip on the exploitation, thats not to say that it's good though. If you have ever seen any of these independent shot on video "movies" from the late 80's-early 90's it has a very specific style that is something that I don't really care for. If anything it reminds me of buying Redneck Zombies and being disappointed that I spent my money on trash. Only suitable for a certain type of drunk audience. Also cross-eyed boobs.

(1.5 out of 5)





20.) Commentary For The Final Girls (2015) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Lively track with the director and several other cast and crew members. More humors than most tracks and I really like the director and how passionate he is about movie making. Looking on his IMDB he hasn't done much since this film when really this seemed like a breakout performance to me, I'd throw money at this guy to more projects based on this. I liked hearing the alternate lines that were too inappropriate and about how this movie was originally suppose to be a lot more Dead Alive than the PG-13 faire we got. But also I appreciate his reasoning and can see why it works as PG-13 better now. There is also a writer track on this disc and I usually avoid those but now I am wondering how much the studio did make them change...

(4 out of 5)





21.) Red Letter Media Commentary For A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: "No slut shaming on the Freddy commentary, Rich". It's always fun to listen to the RLM crew do commentaries. This one isn't their best there are quite a few lulls/content edits and a very subdued atmosphere but even not being their best it is still a great track. Loved hearing how Jay briefly worked on the remake, all the riff-ing and of course the interplay between Mike and Rich is always where the gold is. It's weird that I have never watched a NOES film for any of my OHMCs, maybe I need to do a marathon? Oh, I should have saved this John Saxon day, dang.

22.) Delirium (1987) (Blu-Ray)

My Thoughts: Being a model in Europe is so dangerous. This one was an accidental upgrade for me here as apparently I had this in an oder 3 pack on DVD. The reason that the image on the front didn't jog anything in the brain is that this kind of surreal imagery is such a disposable part of the film, it's how the killer sees his victims prior to murder, and in motion the effects don't really hold up. The movie it's self is a passable Giallo with lots of skin but not much of the style that one is accustom to for the genre. It's a take it or leave it film that is more for the individual scraping the bottom of the Giallo barrel.

(3 out of 5)





23.) 2nd Commentary For The Final Girls (2015) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: As predicted the writer's track was a step down. There was a few hints of what could have been and I loved the idea of people's bodies actually changing to conform to the 80's horror movie status quo but they didn't talk about the changes nearly enough. Also there were quite a few silences even after one of the participants talks about hating silences on audio commentaries. Thats one of the things that was really interesting, both these two and the director were all big audio commentary listeners, seems like that is the crowd that never makes it on the track. And I loved hearing them talk about other commentaries and they even pointed out one that I owned and never listened to that I am going to have to give a spin here after the challenge (the feminist track on Basic Instinct). Also some good Friday the 13th reference point outs that even I missed the first time around.

(3.5 out of 5)





24.) The Belko Experiment (2015) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Enjoyable premise, you have an office building under lock down and the workers are tasked will killing one another. I like the feel of this movie and the poponderance of B Marvel characters in it but it feels really dated. Especially for a movie that just came out a few years ago. This could have something to do with watching Mayhem (a similar office based horror comedy) first, both are worth watching just be sure to watch Belko first. A fun ride that I am sure would be super connectable for anyone who has ever had an office job. Also with this title showing up at Dollar Tree (of course right after I buy at full-ish price on Amazon) there is no reason not to pick it up.

25.) Antidote (2013) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: This movie had the building blocks but didn't do anything with them. Decent acting, effects and location but with a cast of 4 your zombie apocalypse isn't going to be very apocalypse-y. I gave this Dollar General dump bin title a chance but alas its about as bad as the cover would lead you to believe. It revolves around a couple who are working their way through one of them having been bitten. There is an iffy "cure" that might help or might just prolong the turn and in this case it just prolongs it. It's not bad enough to be morbidly interesting and it's not good enough to enjoy there is just no reason to see this movie.

(2 out of 5)





26.) The Babysitter: Killer Queen (2020) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: It's almost like they are making teen horror movies for adults that still want to watch teen horror movies. Maybe not the cultural touchstone that it's predecessor was but this sequel did a good job of getting the cast back together & making me laugh a few times. The original was never a film I would have anticipated a sequel from so really it was just nice to get. And you just genuinely like the main actor, I loved the whole everyone thinking he was crazy after the events of the first movie turned up no bodies and his arc in this one. I would even hazard to say lets just throw that character in a few more genre movies, maybe next he has to deal with werewolves or a vampire moves in next door. Sign me up McG.

(3.5 out of 5)





27.) #Alive (2020) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: Dang, is Korea now the place where the best zombie movies are made? It seems like all the best ones to come out in the US recently have all been comedies. A very up to date look at trying to survive the zombie apocalypse if you lived in one of those huge apartment buildings in a urban area. I loved everything about this movie, even the parts where culturally I just couldn't connect like the noodles scene, if this was a local movie what would be that special meal? Pizza? Grilled Cheese? What could have been the amazing remake counterpart meal? This movie follows a homebody gaming streamer stuck in his apartment in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. And a connection he forges with a woman across the way in the next building. Fantastic movie, easily the best zombie move I have seen since watching Train To Busan last year. Oh and this movie was produced by the company that makes my favorite chocolate bar of all things; Lotte.

(5 out of 5)





28.) Abominable (2006) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: A little disappointed as, based on the cover, I was expecting a cheesy 80's type of movie. But I guess it wasn't that far off the mark for that. This movie feel like The Hallmark Channel just decided to do a horror movie one day just the same crew, directors, editor retooling their efforts to make something outside of their wheelhouse. It has a bizarre pacing that plays like a horror movie, just a little off, an overly exaggerated score and lots of B-C level horror names. Lance Hendrickson, Jefferey Combs & Tiffany Shepis all fall victim to
the beast, fortunately only the latter being nude at the time. This movie was... bad... but oddly enjoyable still. There is both a lot better and a lot worse Bigfoot movies out there but there is just enough cameos and weirdness here to make this one stand out a bit.

(2.5 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts: It’s not better than Book of Monster or the alligator movie but now I have 3 favorites. I like that girl that was with that wheelchair guy, and the wheelchair guy and the girl who got bit and dragged out of the cave by the monster, thats my two favorite girls. I am done with the review.





B-6 & B-7.) Rahr & Son's Brewing Company (Texas) - Oktoberfest vs Oaktoberfest*

Oktoberfest Thoughts: Smells a bit like beer and cheese. Taste a hint cheesy too. This is a thick Marzen Lager, smooth but heavy with flavor, almost to the point where I might question if it was artificial. It does mellow out as it warms and strikes me as above average Oktoberfest Ale, nice improvement this year over previous efforts Rahr & Sons.

(4 out of 5)

Oaktoberfest Thoughts: Ohhh. the oak barrel aged version of the above beer. Smells a little like a fancy cigar shop or one of those high end barbers. You really taste the Whiskey, this taste like a mixed drink, the Oktoberfest flavors are much reduced, or perhaps just overshadowed by the whiskey. You just barely taste it before you are whisked away. I don’t know, it’s interesting. I think I like its because it so so unusual but I don’t know how comparable it really is to other beers in the challenge. Man I was drinking this and I am like wow this one is really hitting and I look and its 10%, this is a mixed drink.

My Wife's Taste:
Fuck. Smells good… very tart and bitter. If you like bitter thick beer maybe. I don’t like it.





29.) Cell Count (2012) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: In case you were wondering, no that is not the old guy from Fringe. Ha, this B body horror flick rented a low end Baldwin for a day. This was a meh movie but the ideas behind it really started to intrigue me there at the end. I wonder if the sequel is a direct continuation? Are they straight up on an alien planet? Were they frozen and awoken in the future Wayward Pines style. I think with way I would probably be disappointed. As it stands though not terrible, a semi interesting thinker, would you make the trade to live? Also was that Asian chick ever really there?

30.) Trailer Trauma 2: Drive-In Monsterama (2016) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: They addressed ever issue I had with the first Trailer Trauma. They added more theater bumpers, they made it all horror this time and it was longer. Really just all around a better product. If I was going to nit pick about something it would be the length, it is now a bit too long, or at least a bit too long to enjoy as a "movie" running 3.5 hours long it is a bit of a slog, but this would be amazing as something playing in the background at a Halloween party, you know if we ever mingle with other people again. This time the focus was primarily on 60's & 70's monster movie, these are not movies I typically gravitate towards due to pacing but in grind house trailer form it was perfect. A little higher percentage of movies I was aware of this time around but I had only actually seen the movie for 7 of the 95 trailers. Movie's added to my "to buy" list are: Captain Cronos The Vampire Hunter, Blood From The Mummy Tomb, The Psychopath & The Curse Of The Mummy’s Tomb (I have been on a bit of a Mummy kick lately). I am looking forward to Vol 3 the most considering it is themed around my horror bread and butter: 80's horror. But with a running time exceeding 7 hours I might save that one as an off challenge item.

31.) Pet Semetery (2019) (4K UHD)*

My Thoughts: I heard a lot of negative about this remake but I liked it. Not sure why they chose that serial killer looking guy for the father but the change to a daughter really worked for me. They upped the spook a little much but it did the make the property match the IT movies much better if being a bit over the top. So moral quandary time, what would you do? Well I suppose I wouldn't be in the situation in the first place as I am not hiking that far to bury a cat. So I would be saved from homicidal zombie child just due to laziness. But supposing I would think given what I saw with the cat and that they obviously prepared her for the funeral I wouldn't do it in this case. If the death just happened and I could rush her there... I would probably give it a shot. Really liked the Pet Semetery song though, I had no Idea The Ramones did that.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts:
Is it only for pets? It’s almost like a zombie but more funner than a zombie. My most favorite character is the girl. Should you meet an untimely demise, would you want to be buried in the Pet Semetary? I would. But why is the old guy not being buried in the pet cemetery? OK those are all of my sentences.




32.) Unmasked Part 25 (1988) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Friday The 13th fan fiction. This movie answers the question what if Jason (Jackson) fell in love and started dating one of his would be victims? Set in Englund and beginning with a typical Jason end reel blood bath he pauses when his vision impaired victim mistakes him for her blind date. It's one of those comedies where nothing ever makes you actually laugh but being such a fan of what is being parodies I really liked it. Where else are you going to see scenes of an unmasked Jason engaging in bondage role-play with his super hot blind girlfriend? Also there is something a bit more pure about this movie being made during the height of Jason mania. Also some surprising gore here, I wonder if because this was a comedy they let them get away with an R on this for this when a regular Friday movie of the era never would. Enjoyable oddball parody that I would recommend to most Friday Fans out there, it is for sure an acquired taste but I liked it. And there is a pair of commentaries on here that I am going to be listening to for sure.

(3.5 out of 5)





B-8.) Schlafly Tap Room: Pumpkin Ale (Missouri)*

My Thoughts: Has a rather lovely pumpkin scent to it. It's a smell that just evokes an image fall. Odd flavor profile though. Has a rather light pear infused hoppy bite followed by a chemically liquorish pumpkin flavor and bitterness. Not entirely pleasant. The chemical flavor does dissipate as it warms and the pumpkin developed into a more pumpkin spice… so liquorish pumpkin spice. And while in text that sound good, it just doesn’t hit the tongue like it should, just taste a bit off like maybe there is some sour yeast or this weird flavor behind the flavor. No bueno. OK, this is later SterlingBen, bottom of the glass, room temp, now it’s a much better brew, but wildly inconsistent so I am sticking with my previously assigned score.

(1.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste:
Smells stink, smells like old peoples house. Taste spoiled, I don’t like it.

33.) Starry Eyes (2014) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Glad I am not epileptic. I liked this movie, and could tell while I was watching it that it was a good movie but man was it pretentious. One of those kinds of movies where you can feel the writer writing it on the other side of the script. The story follows a struggling actress (two words that will loose 50+ percent of the viewing audience) who essentially gives into a satanic cult to become a star. Tons of fantastic visuals and Starry herself is amazing in this movie, I fell like it could have been much more than it was with just a few story tweaks but who cares what some rando on the internet thinks, right?

(4 out of 5)





34.) Children Of The Damned (1964) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: How are we going to end this movie? Well... dramatic screwdriver zoom in, obviously. The aliens? having learned from their last disastrous experiment decide to spread the children out a bit this time. So we get a very culturally inclusive group of kids this time, probably to the detriment of the subject matter, it seemed creepier when they are all little snotty English kids as opposed to the variety of accents we get this time. There is a church in disrepair and a doomsday device... when was Beneath The Planet Of The Apes made again? Obviously you gotta think; if you had one of these kids could you normalize it, would you be able to bring it to the super market and have them mind controls someone to pour milk all over themselves? Also the bigger question, if the theory in the movie as to their... lineage is true what does that mean? Was it a gift? Some interesting thought come out of this albeit weaker sequel. I probably would skip commentary on a meh-is movie but I do recall the commentary on the first one was pretty good, also I wouldn't have to really move to start the commentary...

(3 out of 5)





35.) Commentary For Children Of The Damned (1964) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: Ah, another writers track, you would have thought I learned my lesson from the writer's track on The Final Girls. This is a pretty banal track, full of uninteresting information andI don't know the guy is too close to the mike or something as you can hear the saliva smacking around in his mouth, it is unpleasant. There is one good story about Zero Mostel but otherwise this track is a hard skip.

(2 out of 5)





B-9.) Coop Ale Works: Oktoberfest (Oklahoma) - 2020 vs 2017

2020 Thoughts: Has an aggressive hoppy scent. Not good cold (seems to be a theme). Warming it it does start maturating those caramel Octoberfest-y notes with a bit of an overly sharp finish. Chilled it’s a decent if unremarkable Oktoberfest. I am interested to see the flavor effects the aging on the next one will have.

(3 out of 5)

2017 Thoughts: Heavy sediment smell to this one (the smell you get when a a beer isn’t filtered very well prior to bottling/canning). Wow, that taste better than the 2020. It has deep liquorish & earthy overtones and is somehow more carbonated than the never beer (it additionally took forever to pour). Weird that these aged beers seem to be fizzier than their modern counterparts. If I am going to be 100% honest here there is a bit of a metallic taste, that I think I weirdly enjoy. As it warms it develops into an Oktoberfest with a sharper hoppier punch (or more of a jab as it recedes fast). A more enjoyable beer than the 2020 handily, although am I just liking it because it is weird?

(4 out of 5)





36.) To Hell And Back: The Kane Hodder Story (2017) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Jeeze, I knew Kane had a near fatal burn but the story of it is rough. Be prepared to have your opinion of Kane Hodder improve like threefold and I already liked the guy. Great retrospective over the career and personal life of one of the icons of horror. Having sat through Crystal Lake Memories a few time I was kind of thinking that this might be all retread but there was not that much duplication at all. I really enjoyed this doc and now I have a new goal to one day see and get choked by Kane Hodder.

37.) Demented (1980) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: So, I will admit I bought this because I thought that was Michelle Bauer on the cover. And while the actress in the movie is similarly... set up, she is no Michelle Bauer. Movie starts out with a gang rape and an institutionalization and ends with the main character flipping the script on another gang rape (because I guess there was nothing else to do in the 70's). As far as a rape revenge movie goes it was ok, maybe not quite my type of horror and I thought the ultimate victims were less deserving than the typical victims in a rape revenge movie. Also was the husband a 70/80's porn star? I feel like I have seen him in a Vinegar Syndrome release.

(3 out of 5)

My Wife's Thoughts:
It was pretty good. And seems like no one is her side except the doctor and guy have to listen to the lady otherwise it’s going to happen to you. Too violent, I scared American ladies.Yeah I can give 4 star, it was a good movie. Yeah.. if husband support it won’t be happen.

(4 out of 5)





38.) Vampires Vs The Bronx (2020) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: Blaxploitation vampire movie... for kids? I liked the feel and the actors in this but the PG-13-ining stopped it from reaching it's full potential. This exact same movie with a little Lost Boys flair would have been great. But poofing vamps like Buffy and a big bad who is decidedly less than threatening makes this vampire outing way too safe. I did enjoy their mythos addition of the holy water boiling and the gentrification humor was funny.

(3 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts:
It was good, I still think in some parts of those weapons... it kind of reminds me of the Lost Boys because of the necklace. One of the guy vampires, I like the one with long hair, that guy. I also like the girl, the two vampires I like. I’m done. "Did you just melt his face? Yeah It’s Crazy."





B-10.) Rouge Ales: Batsquatch (Oregon)*

My Thoughts: You know, I don’t really like IPAs and quite frankly I don’t trust people that do. Because they are obviously liars. But if you are into tasting different beers you gotta throw one in every now and then, even if it is just for calibration purposes. Its too easy to be overly nit picky with good beers if you only ever have good beers so a little IPA kick in the face is required from time to time. This has that typical overbearing floral smell, basically like sticking your face in a bag of hop pellets. As far as taste goes though it might, surprisingly, be one of the better IPAs I have had. A lot smoother and less mouth punishing than your normal IPA. There is a little bit of citrus there and just for a second it taste like a thick wheat ale before the IPA sweeps over your tastebuds. Obviously I bought this for the branding but you know, not the Fear Factor gross level I was expecting.

39.) Leprechaun: Origins (2014) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: The dark Leprechaun reboot nobody asked for. This was a competent monster in the woods movie but the Leprechaun aspect felt a little forced. It doesn't star everyone's favorite little person and in fact it doesn't start a little person at all. Yes, this "Leprechaun" is a regular sized person just squatting the whole time. Again ok monster movie (even if it obvious fake Ireland) but terrible Leprechaun movie.

(3 out of 5)





40.) Ghostheads (2016) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: So much cringe. This Ghostbusters version of Trekkies starts out well enough with old videos of kids playing with the toys of my youth and interviews with the stars and then quickly turns into weirdos talking about how Ghostbusters help them beat alcohol addiction, how it makes their depressing job worth it & crying, so much crying. And even though no one talks about it we all saw that Ghostbuster Furry in that group shot. This movie tragically premiered on the same date as the ill fated remake and was pretty much lost in those few years of Ghostbuster negativity. Loved all the parts with the cast, Ray Parker, the replica Ectos/proton packs, the memorabilia but the people... As a documentary it's ok but I found it uncomfortable to watch, especially when everyone was trying to be so positive about the 2016 version. This is something I will probably never watch again. Leprechaun Origins, that's probably going to get another watch eventually, this; no.

(2.5 out of 5)





B-11.) Ayinger Privatbrauerei: Oktober Fest-Marzen (Germany)

My Thoughts: A bit of a cheat as this beer is available all year round but seeing how it’s actually made in German I thought it deserved a little special treatment. Wonderful, light Oktoberfest ale smell. I'm not sure how much of this is psychological but the taste on this is just spot on. It feels like this is something I would be drinking if I was in Germany at Oktoberfest. It’s thicker more full bodied than any of the other Fest beers I have had this challenge (thus far). Ale, thats what it is. It taste European, like a nice ale with those traditional Oktoberfest flavors. Not overly carbonated, smooth (but not thin), very light peppering of hops around the sides of your mouth that develop into a more palatable bitterness. Man, this is a great beer. Early front runner for Best Oktoberfest of the challenge for me.

(5 out of 5)





41.) VFW (2019) (4K UHD)*

My Thoughts: Now that a movie. In a throwback to the vigilante/'man pushed too far' films of the early 80's with a decisively updated amount of ultra gore, VFW pits a group of grizzled veterans against essentially the bad guys from RoboCop 2. Should I be subscribing to shudder if I am buying their physical media? How about a free week with every disc someone buys? Anyway, loved the stylized 80's lighting and all the old men actors, you know when you see Stephen Lang it's going to be good. Highly enjoyable movie that is somewhat questionable about it's inclusivity here but it is listed as horror on IMDB. The ending kinda petering out kept it a solid 5 out of 5 but I comes highly recommended.

(4.5 out of 5)





42.) 2nd Commentary For Jason X (2001) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: WTF? Nearly 20 years have gone by and the newly recorded commentary sound worse than the archival one. The moderator sounds like he is talking from inside of a closet and writer seems to be rubbing 2 coins together, on the mic every time he talks. This is one of the most frustrating tracks I have listened to in a long time. Aside from that I had saved the original special features announcement that Scream put out when they announced this set (which has since been updated) that erroneously listed Kane Hodder as a participant in this track and I kept waiting and waiting for him to show up only to find out that was just a flub. I was super jazzed about a new track for this, one of the lesser loved entries in the franchise that I have over time come to enjoy quite a bit over time, so the disappointment stung a little more than it might otherwise have. Such a disappointment to have to give this the lowest score I can bestow, and maybe the first commentary I have ever given a 1 out of 5 to.

43-47.) The Haunting Of Bly Manor (2020) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: Ohh, that last episode, they always get you on the last episode. Netflix's sequel to the Hunting of Hill House, isn't quite the masterpiece that the original is but it is still stellar ghost story. Set in a much less glamours 80's than most retro cash properties try to convey I did frequently think things looked a bit plain, especially comparing this house to the one in the original. But I was similarly frequently moved and creeped out. The cat's out of the bag with the background ghosts so every wide shot almost becomes a quick Where's Waldo for adults. And even though the house might have been less glamours I did quite enjoy the English personalities and setting. Additionally the ultimate fate of these ghost was much less desirable than those of the original. For anyone that has seen it (to be read as Beware Spoilers), did you also notice the sword in the lake? I think thats what it was? I will take some exception to a few of the props though, there is a cheap fridge painted green to look fancy and those terrible fake moon flowers really took me out of the moment. Otherwise I quite enjoyed this, even if it ended a bit overly sappy.

(4 out of 5)





48.) Godzilla: King Of The Monsters (2019) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: For a movie about gigantic monsters destroying the world this was kinda boring. Also the monsters being the Earth's white blood cells & the terrorist group that wanted the titans to reign again were terrible screen writing. I liked the 2015 Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island, perhaps because it was a little more about the build up and the monster fu was essentially the main event, the thing you waited all movie to see. This movie seemed to be majority monster fu. You didn't really care about any of the characters, it didn't build the mythology well, I wanted to liked it, and I am still into seeing Godzilla Vs King Kong but my expectations for it are pretty deflated. Oh and they make sure not let you forget about that matchup, with their constant references to Skull Island. Godzilla: King Of The Monsters is a competent Transformers-ization of the source material, just turn your brain off and watch smash.

(3 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts:
It wasn’t really a monster movie at all, it's just a regular movie that is not horror-y. I like the monster character that reminds me of a butterfly.





B-12.) Elysian: Night Owl Pumpkin Ale (Washington)*

My Thoughts: Light wheaty pumpkin spice scent on top. I’ll give it credit for being bold. This thick almost syrupy ale hits with a rather banal flavor and just a touch of hops around the fringes of your mouth and then turns into this weird pumpkin to the face flavor. Heavy with a pumpkin spice/vegetable/liquorish taste. It was a bit off-putting on the first sip but the more I drink it the more I am liking this. I feel like I should be drinking this out of a little pumpkin That is the pumpkin ale experience, what is the abv on this, because I am already feeling thais.

49.) Beyond The Darkness (1979) (Blu-Ray)

My Thoughts: Son of a bitch! This is in the same 3 pack that has Delirium in it. My only two non-first time views this challenge were both due to accidental upgrades from the same set. Might as well upgrade House On The Edge Of The Park at this point. This 70's macabre ultra gore shocker is a lot tamer than it used to be. The story revolves around a surprisingly popular Norman Bates type who digs up the recently deceased girl of his dreams and then taxidermies her for future use. Future use that he never seems to get around to as there is a stream of ladies that end up throwing themselves at him and ultimately meeting a grizzly demise. Notable for it's musically driven tension, I picked this one due to it syncing up with today's theme of music inspired by Ennio Morricone. Fittingly this Blu-Ray even comes with a copy of the soundtrack. Solid Euro-Shocker.

50.) My Mom's A Werewolf (1989) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: I picked this for John Saxon day but this is probably not how he would like to be remembered, as a rape-y home wrecker werewolf. This was part of a deluge of bad werewolf comedies that came out in the wake of Teen Wolf. It stars familiar actors, including the mousy girl from Friday the 13th something as an over the top horror fan that is quite frankly somewhat insulting to the audience. Everyone is acting bombastically and most of the humor doesn't land but if you wanna see John Saxon lick some girls hand repeatedly or gratuitous werewolf leg shavings or if Saturday the 14th Strikes Back is your jam then there might be something here for you.

(2 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts:
I don’t know what to say... It’s really good. Because I like the fighting of the two werewolves and I want to know why most of the time the werewolf don’t fight there is only one werewolf? I’m done.





51.) Awaken The Devil (2014) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: Student film level junk that is notable only for casting a George Zimmerman lookalike as the lead and for being visually similar to a FMV clip from a 90's video game. Why did I buy this?

(1 out of 5)





52.) The Curse Of La Llorona (2019) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: I needed something slick and polished after the trash fest I had been having today and super ghost La Llorona fit the bill. I am not a fan of the ghost bruises children and CPS comes to check cliche, it really sets up a barrier to the happy ending that ghost busting just can't overcome. I mean there is still going to be an investigation going on and now there is undoubtedly more ghost bruises. Aside from that aspect It is a decent ghost story, I love how these Conjuring tales are all interconnected period piece ghost stories. This one falls into the same trap that The Nun did with just being way too over the top towards the end, a slick passable pallet cleanser.

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



B-13.) Iron Monk: Oktoberfest (Oklahoma)

My Thoughts: This local brew has that tale tell floral hops scent that is usually the trade mark of beers I don’t care for but it was, surprisingly, not as bad as that IPA-ish scent might lead you to believe. Starts out like it’s going to have an aggressive hops flavor but that quickly transforms in a deep sugary caramel with citrus notes. I don’t think this taste like an Oktoberfest but I like it. Sort of taste like someone trying to make an Oktoberfest without ever having had one before. Solid beer.

(4 out of 5)





B-14.) Wasatch Brewery: Black O' Lantern Pumpkin Stout (Utah)*

My Thoughts: Smells nice, like a used book store. A smooth creamy stout that has a lighter stout finish than usual. Definitely a unique seasonal flavor in there a very liquorishy pumpkin flavor. Not a huge stout fan but as a second beer of the night, not bad.

(3 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste:
Somehow smells close to wine. Very dark but very mild, amazing smooth taste, I kinda like that but looks evil like soy sauce.

53.) Commentary For Street Trash (1987) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Finally upgrading my old sci-fi convention bootleg of this title (purchased before it was available on disc) and wow does it look amazing. Dare I say even beautiful, I have never seen the colors look like this before. Having seen the movie quite a few times I opted for the Writer/Producer commentary and it turned out to be a very good track. It's weird to hear someone talk so seriously about Street Trash as it has been a topic of conversation for me for years across multiple friend groups. The writer/producer in question is the same guy that did Documentary of the Dead, thankfully his pacing is greatly improved but also he has a wealth of knowledge he brings to this audio commentary, every thing from those fun behind the scenes stores to alternate casts, planned sequels, foreign releases of the film, the guy is a Street Trash Encyclopedia. Great track and excuse for watching this film again. Also thank you to Trevor for picking this for today's subset and giving me that kick to finally go legit with this title.

(4 out of 5)





54.) 2nd Commentary For Street Trash (1987) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: In the first commentary the Writer/Producer makes mention of the cardinal sin of audio commentaries: just saying what is happening on screen. And that is what the director does in this track, the whole track. Give it 5 minutes or so, just enough until you agree and then skip the track forward to the closing title, trust me.

(2 out of 5)





55.) Twisted Tale: The Unmaking Of Spookies (2019) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Wow, a fascinating look at the comedy of errors that came to be know as Spookies. This is one of the two feature length documentaries on the 2 disc Blu-Ray edition of Spookies. An amazing feat in it's self that this sort of coveted VHS release has had this kind of effort put into it. The documentary is very entertaining, it's always a boon for a documentary when there is a clear cut villain (the producer) for everyone to endlessly cut down. Not sure how this turned into a special feature day but I think I am going to keep it rolling with the other feature length retrospective on this disc: Vipco: The Untold Story.

(4.5 out of 5)





B-15.) TUPPS Brewery: McKinney Oktoberfest (Texas)*

My Thoughts: Unremarkable overly hoppy scent (I have this Pumpkin Donut candle burning from Bath & Bodyworks and I think it is throwing off my sniffer a bit though). Closer on the scale to an IPA than an Oktoberfest. Has a nice ale mouthfeel but then you get that aggressive hops on the back of your pallet along with a sour cheapie beer finish. A gas station taste with a premium price tag. Blah.

(1.5 out of 5)





56.) VIPCO: The Untold Story (2018) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: I will give Vinegar Syndrome credit here as this second documentary features the villain from the first as the focal point in a much more positive light, albeit only ever touching on the Spookies fiasco. This movie follows the rise and fall of the VIPCO VHS/DVD label in the UK during the Video Nasties era. Always interesting to see retrospectives on horror movie moral outrage. But unlike the other documentary this is a very sophomoric effort and you can really feel it. The lack of back ground movies the way stores drag on too long, it makes an interesting subject boring. You could cut about 45 minutes of this, add more cutaways & some music and have a movie twice as good. Recommend people stop after the first retrospective.

57.) Evolver (1995) (DVD)

My Thoughts: And people talk about 80's movies being cheesy. Staring that girl from Mortal Kombat, a pre-FreakyLinks Ethan Embry and Start Trek: The Next Generation's Q, this movie is about an experimental robot that you play laser tag with at home. Yeah just like those things they sell every Christmas now. This one leans more in a more dark Short Circuit way and there is plenty of 90's VR to go around... so yeah. Pretty accurate representation of the present, except when they use a payphone. I do have a bit of a soft spot for this lower end video store title. It was one of the first DVD I purchased after receiving a DVD as a kid, it came in a 4 pack with Death Machine, Solar Crisis and Cyborg 2. And it's definitely had some replay here in the last 20 years, it's no Watchers but it's pretty fun.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts:
It was good, it wasn’t a horror movie. I thought it was going to be like a regular movie but it wasn’t, you said today we were going to watch Christine. He was cool, Evolver. Do we have something like that, in my closet?





58.) Christine (1983) (4K UHD)

My Thoughts: The classiest killer car movie. This was an upgrade for me from the VHS so it looked great, not sure if it looked 4K great but it did look Blu-Ray great. I had forgotten about the Carpenter score on this one, very effective and amazing what a little reverse photography can accomplish. Not the best King story or Carpenter effort but you gotta admit they picked the right car, so evocative. This movie played no small part in me getting an old junker for my first car, unfortunately it wasn't haunted and didn't fix it's self.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts: It was not as scary as I thought it would be. Why they play the same music over and over again? I like that girl that was helping that guy that was destroying that other guys car. I was about to ask you, what is the cure to make him not crazy? (maybe its too late tot turn him back to normal) Or maybe its too strong at that point.






B-16.) Elysian: Dark O' The Moon Pumpkin Stout(Washington)*

My Thoughts: Now thats a stout, looked like I was pouring the color black. Has that bitter dark Guinness-y smell. Ohh. That’ll put some hair on your chest. Like a carbonated black coffee with some 95% Cacao shavings in it. I am getting a bit of the pumpkin spice in there too and a wood lacker liquorish flavor. This would be a great beer in a flight, just as a taste comparisons to other beers. I wouldn’t want to just get a 6 pack though, I feel like I might wake up during the height of the Salem Witch trials. I should have drank this one when I was watching Leprechaun Origins. A step above Black O’ Lantern for sure.

(3.5 out of 5)





59.) Out Of The Dark (1995) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: I usually don't click with Chinese comedies but after watching this I am wondering if I have just been watching the wrong Chinese comedies. This is just so over the top goofy that it kind of feels like you are watching a cartoon. It's about a group of security guards who insist the help of a mental institution escapee to fight ghosts in their apartment complex. Lots of references to Americal pop culture, good effects and while it's not a 'laugh out loud' comedies it is a constantly smiling one. I wonder if Natalie Portman or Jean Reno ever saw this. Thank you to Alyxstarr or picking and hosting this movie and now giving me a new sub-genre to pursue.

60.) The Gate (1987) (DVD)

My Thoughts: So I guess I have given up all pretenses of doing an all FTV challenge at this point. This is one of those horror movies I grew up on and thought maybe the daughter would connect a bit more with its kid centric cast. It follows a young Stephen Dorff accidentally opening up a demonic portal in his back yard. It's a great complement to The Goonies & Making Contact and really just an enjoyable into to horror movie. I am still rocking my beginning of the format DVD in a superjewel cases and considering the amount of replay it has gotten here these last... 20? years I think I need to pick up the new Vestron blu-ray.

(4.5 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts: I like it, I thought it was like umm like it was one of those movies that in the end there was still stuff that was going to try to attack the humans but there is no sequel to it. (there is a sequel) Can we watch it tomorrow? I thought the weirdest ones were those little alien things.





61.) The Meltdown Memoirs (2006) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: A relatively well spun, comprehensive retrospective on the movie Street Trash. It covers all aspects of production, behind the scenes, releasing & where are they now. Also I am happy to say that the maker of Documentary Of The Dead has improved since that feature (still surprising that you could make Dawn of the Dead boring). I will note though that there are still several moments of amateurish cringe in here but the topic at had is so good that they get a pass. Additionally this retrospective includes pretty much all the other special features (deleted scenes/behind the scenes) an aspect I dug since those can sometimes be a little dry on their own. One thing sorely missing was the participation of the actress who played Wendy, she is listed as MIA here but looking on IMDB she did later participate in a 2019 retrospective called 30 Years And Still Melting, that I can't find anywhere. If you liked the source material it is worth a watch.

B-17.) Sierra Nevada Brewing Co: Oktoberfest (California) - 2020 vs 2018

2020 Thoughts: Kind of a soapy smell... Light hops bite on the front that rolls into a barley caramel. The caramel does taste a bit burned though and leaves a bit of a stinging bitterness in your mouth. Closes with and unusual heavy barley aftertaste. I don’t care for this one, not a relaxing pleasant taste more of a 'what’s going on in my mouth right now' taste. Somewhat unpleasant really. As it warms it does calm down a bit and you get hints of white grape but I still don’t care for it.

(2 out of 5)

2018 Thoughts: A more pungent floral soapy smell. Thats not what I was expecting. Smoother, less carbonation there is a deep earthiness, smoother amber tasting. Objectively after tasting the current version I must admit thinking that this is a slightly spoiled version of that but it is tastier. Really ups on the caramel and none of that burnt bitterness but it does leave you with an ever so slightly disconcerting sour taste in your mouth with and just a touch lingering plain alcohol taste. Overall though I would consider this a success story of the aging program.

(3 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste:
Mmm, smells good but little bitter first taste but amazingly smooth... maru.





62.) Dead Men Walk (1943) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: Movies like this make me wonder how often vigilante mobs took maters into their own hands or if it was mostly a Hollywood trope. This Dracula knock off has an old man playing a generic Vampire and constantly messing with his still living twin brother and feeding on their niece. I liked the schlocky opening and the grandparent music at the end, but old man vampires are not very interesting.

63.) Wish Upon (2017) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Ever watch a movie where your brain is telling you that everything happening on screen is stupid, all the plot "twists", all the character decisions, everything, but you still like it? Thats this movie for me. This complete cast of stereotypes falls under the veil of evil that is a monkey paw-esk Chinese wish box. Our main character makes terrible wishes over and over again and even plainly ignores the blood price evidence and keeps making wishes, each time having forgotten all the circumstances that surrounded her other wishes coming true. It's dumb fun that I hope over the years comes into it's own as a drinking game movie or something that gets a MST3K track.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Thoughts:
It’s good but was too easy to guess but I did not expect that ending at all. And I don’t understand why she have to die. So her mom did wishes, then she died? She did not seem to get nothing, though?

64.) Goosebumps: Ghost Beach (1996) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: Alright, you can see this right? This cover? It clearly indicates that there are 3 movies in this set so I sat down to watch this so called Ghost Beach and was surprised when it ended in about 20 minutes. So despite it's box presentation this is actually just a stream of episodes from a Goosebumps TV series. As is one of the other titles, and the the last one is actually a movie. So we start out with Ghost Beach, a few kids on summer vacation at their grandparents on the cost + ghosts & inappropriate music swells. Our next episode involves a magical tree that swaps bodies and other kids must face Tom Sawyer bandits who are now ghost dogs (this one was my favorite). And our last story is the unpopular girl meets a weird adult and lets them lure her to a far away part of town, luckily it's not a trap but a genie who grants monkey paw wishes. Kind of interesting that I watched Wish Upon last night with the wife and this today with the daughter. Overall for kids show everything struck me as pretty average, some interesting ideas but distilling the Goosebumps books into such a short format does a bit of a disservice to them in my opinion.

(3 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts:
I liked the first and second. I liked it, actually I loved it. I thought they were all going to be the same, like one whole movie, but it wasn’t. Why the grandparents were actually ghosts? What would your wishes be? To get an expensive jewel. My second wish would be getting a poodle... and to get all the toys and presents I wanted. Thats the end.




B-18.) Voodoo Ranger Spicy Release: Atomic Pumpkin (Colorado)

My Thoughts: I never seem to like this one but for some reason I keep buying it every year. A very demure scent, not much to it a bit floral a bit vegetable, kind of like a supermarket. It is an odd one. A light basic bitch pumpkin beer on the bottom of your mouth and then peppery spice on the top & back. Never been a big fan of pepper in my beer, reminds me too much of ginger beer. And like ginger beer the spice on this one does build as you drink it. If you are looking for a peppery seasonal then.. this is pretty much it. For everyone else it’s a skip.

(2.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste: Very Fruity. Almost no scent. Doesn’t taste alcohol that much too. Looks like some apple vinegar.




65.) Chastity Bites (2013) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: Another one of those movies where you can see the writers on the other side of the script. "What if the bad guy only kills the girls who don't have sex?!?" "Genius!" The actors are all way too old to be high schoolers, the effects were meh and there was a decent amount of cringe. But I found the middle through end to be decent, highly dated but good structure. I picked this as one for Stuart Gordon day as it was one of the few I hadn't seen from the list and as such I was under the impression he directed it but I guess he just played a bit part as a favor. It's neither good or bad enough to recommend one way or the other. Ahh (this is me coming back later by the way) this movie is like the less successful version of Satanic Panic! Recommend everyone watch that instead.

(2.5 out of 5)





B-19.) Cabin Boys Brewery: Oktoberfest (Oklahoma)

My Thoughts: Lighly hoppy and much fancier smelting than the can would bely. Nice balance. Getting a strong traditional German Oktoberfest taste. Hits the flavor profile, nicely not sure how many more times I can say Caramel notes at this point. It's just getting so repetitive. But hey best local Oktoberfest, for sure.

(4.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste: Smells like german beer. A little bitter but it’s mild, nice smooth texture, I like it.

66.) 1922 (2017) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: Thomas Jane, doing a voice, I mean he's doing a good job but I just always see The Punisher when I see him. This movie is a pretty slow burn psychological terror. Based on a Stephen King story, after Jane and his wife come to an irreconcilable difference he convinces his son the only thing to do is to kill his mom. Things slowly unravel from there. Think There Will Be Blood except corn and rats. There was some rumblings that is is prequel-ish to Children of the Corn but that seems like a bit of a stretch. A decent movie but poor life in the 20's isn't the most interesting subject. Now, if the murder had unleashed an army of Ghoulies for him and his son to fight then maybe you would have had something here.

(3 out of 5)





67.) The Monster Maker (1944) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: You have your classic old movie set up of the creepy old guy meeting an uninterested young girl who is the spitting image of his former wife. This time he is the world renowned expert in a very rare glandular disease that he used against the girl's father in an effort to get to her. Oh and there is a gorilla for some reason, I mean it is a 40's horror movie so it would almost be more surprising if there wasn't a gorilla. There was a scene in this movie that held on a hand written note so that the audience could read it and the note was in cursive. And even being classically trained in cursive I had had a hard time reading it and I wondered to myself; in 50 years will anyone be able to read it, anyone weird enough to be watching the 1940's horror movie? I'll be back when I am 86 to post an update.

68.) Hubie Halloween (2020) (Streaming)*

My Thoughts: I used to watch Adam Sandler movies as a kid and laugh but it seems like even though they are still making these the humor has never has really developed it's pretty much just the same thing. A goofy voice, a weirdo, inappropriate old people, and relatively bottom of the barrel slapstick schtick. It's to the point now where I was somewhat embarrassed to be watching this. It reminded me of the judge in Billy Madison who told everyone that not only was his answer wrong everyone in attendance was dumber for having heard it. Thats how I feel about this movie. Now one can't talk about this movie without talking about the setting and copious amounts of Halloween decor. This movie might portray the most decorated Halloween ever caught on film and just watching a movie with this set dressing makes it a little better than the sum of its parts. And they are constantly throwing the comedians at you at a pretty high rate so there is bound to be someone on here for everyone. Had it not been set during Halloween I would have turned it off but it's bearable for it's shear amount of seasonal exploitation.

(2 out of 5)


My Daughter's Thoughts: Why are people have weird voices? (In an effort to be humorous, did you find it funny?) No. Not as good as the alligator movie, that’s it. I like when he gets scared a lot.




69.) Rigor Mortis (2013) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: I felt like I was out of the loop quite a bit while watching this. I am sure someone with more knowledge in the Chinese horror categories would find this to be a more appealing movie than me. Unlike my other Chines haunted apartment complex entry this one is played straight, maybe more towards horror action than for scares though. There is a bit of hopping but not too much. The story revolves around a failed actor moving into a a run down apartment complex with the goal of killing himself there. Things don't go exactly to plan and he gets swept up in a supernatural battle for the building. I liked the ending twist on this movie, its a twist I would normally consider pretty hackneyed but it worked for this property. For those thinking about picking this up be aware that it is visual effects heavy so I probably would get the Blu-Ray.

(3 out of 5)





70.) Get Out (2017) (4K UHD)*

My Thoughts: This is a movie you gotta go into knowing nothing. Unfortunately I got spoiled on the ending so it was a much less impactful movie for me than it could have been. Get out is a modern day Blaxploitation film done right. The whitey's bad elements in Vampires Vs. The bronx seemed way out of place but here it was perfect. A young African American male goes to the woods to visit his white girlfriends weird family but the longer he is there the stranger things get. Rock solid plot, again I wish I could have seen it unspoiled. I loved all the cultural critiques and obviously the TSA agent, that guy was awesome. I probably should have seen this before Us to... anyway I look forward to much more movies from Jordan Peele in the future. Oh, I had a thought, maybe somewhat inappropriate but here it goes anyway: they should have put an audience reaction track to this movie, like a black audience, that would have been a fun experience (I am reminded of the time I want to see the movie Undercover Brother and me and my date were the only 2 white people in this crowded theater, it highly elevated the material).

(4 out of 5)


My Wife's Thoughts: Well, it’s good but I thought it’s more like solving everything, like beginning guys saved and no police involved so little disappointed. Story have to be little deeper detailed the ending so I give them 3.5. They should make little better ending, was good stories.

71.) Thirst (2009) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: What, no Ghoulies? No melting homeless people? Is this really my subset pick? Seems like all of my highest rated stuff is Korean this year. Is Korea the new mecca for solid genre flicks? I mean we still do alright with horror comedies over here but if you think about it, what is the last zombie movie or vampire movie that blew you away, something magical yet real? Thirst brings the sex appeal back to the Vampire genre in a big way. I can't help but compare this to the other Vampire movie I have seen this challenge Vampires Vs The Bronx. Not quite apples to apples but Vampires Vs The Bronx feels like it was made by a high schooler and this feels like it was made by an artist. How did I let this languish in my 'to watch' pile for so long?

(4.5 out of 5)


Wife walk by comment: Is that Korean? Yeah, creepy level is Korean.




B-20.) Wasatch Brewery: Pumpkin (Utah) - 2020 vs 2019

2020 Thoughts: Strong Pumpkin scent, almost tart even, like pumpkin apple smelling (candle worthy for sure). Almost like a Pumpkin Apple seltzer with a bit of a tart aftertaste. Not unpleasant but almost what’s the point of having this be a beer if it taste like a settler.

(2.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste:
Very thick fruit scent, sour. Less fizz, uhhh after taste its not taste like beer, I don’t care for it.


2018 Thoughts: A much more aggressive scent, the pumpkin smells a little sour and perhaps more hoppy. Assuming that this beer used to taste like the 2020, I am not sure what happened to it. It taste even less like an alcoholic beverage. More like straight seltzer with a hint of flavoring, weird. The fact that the flavor is oddly less here makes me think that this was all fake from the get go. This is just flavored and colored seltzer water. I mean it’s a deep amber color and doesn’t taste like beer at all. I call shenanigans.

72.) Mimic 2 (2001) (Blu-Ray)

My Thoughts: Ouch, big step down from the original. So as was the style of the time, moderately successful horror/sci-fi would always get a low budget direct to video stores sequel as a way to suck in those rental dollars with name recognition. Quality of said sequels would vary wildly sometimes being surprisingly good (see Tremors 2) and sometimes being complete trash (see Mimic 2). This film does try to mimic the style of it's predecessor but fails on pretty much every level from the TV quality actors, plotting and editing to the terrible early 2000's CG. This film follows a different bug girl who the Mimics have decided to make their queen, she is a rough and tumble inner city teacher with a rocky love life and I gotta say I even had a few beers before/while seeing this movie and it still sucked so that should say something to ya.

73.) The Dismembered (1962) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: The one thing that is memorable about this movie is how forgettable it was. Lost to time and unreleased in any form since it's release this is one of those movies you watch just for the novelty of watching a lost film. That and because you certainly aren't watching it for the film it's self. This horror comedy embodies neither of its stated genres, it's about a group of jewel thieves who take refuge in an abandoned house by the cemetery following a big heist and about the ghost who live there and their procedural plot to kill them. Gags consist of old "ghosts" saying malevolent things, jump cut disappearances and body parts being pulled around on string. Don't expect to see that skeleton with the saw thats on the cover. As an old indie I am somewhat curious to listen to the commentary on this but also somewhat hesitant seeing as to the quality of the movie. I appreciate Garagehouse Pictures saving films but maybe throw a couple of the weaker ones like this onto a completion disc, huh guys?

(1.5 out of 5)




74.) Deep Rising (1998) (Blu-Ray)

My Thoughts: This is a movie that has grown on my over the years. It was famously was one of the first movies to go all CG monster and for years I despised it because of that. This would have been about the point were I was really getting into 80's horror and the monsters and the effects and just felt affronted by the cinematic betrayal of an all CG creature. Also this was early days for such things and the CG wasn't that good. But looking back on it now it's a fun B sci-fi horror schlock movie. You have this casts of 90's action movie cliches on an abandoned luxury liner filed with carnivorous creatures from the depths. I think when it came out it played a lot differently than it does now, over the years it has tipped the scales from crap to enjoyable cheese. I love the comedy relief and how it seems like TJ Miller is playing the exact same character in 2020's Underwater.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts: Is there as sequel to this? I like it. I like the girl thats like the bad girl. I like the monsters. But I didn’t think the monsters were scary at all. (So, would you rather fight the monsters in this movie or the alligators from Crawl?) The alligator monsters. It seems like those monsters were.. not the leader but it seem like those other monsters were from Godzilla. OK I am done.





B-21.) Hofbrau: Oktoberfestbier (Germany)

My Thoughts: Smells like a Miller Light, that doesn’t bode well. Hmm yeah, it taste like someone went half and half with a cheap domestic beer and an Oktoberfest ale. I had thought I was going a bit overly critical here but looking back over my past reviews this previously green bottle beverage has never really faired that well. As it warms it turns a bit nicer into a sweet Oktoberfest. Very light and airy sweat yeast taste, a tickle of hops on the top of your mouth almost like there is a bit of apple here. I am digging this now, be sure not to drink super cold.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste:
Very crisp American beer scent. Very light, I don’t taste any flavor but very clear aftertaste, I kinda like it.





75.) Commentary For The Amityville Horror (1979) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: I think 70's mirrors with the gold spider web crackle design on it should make a comeback. This track starts out promising with this paranormal investigator/author with lots of experience with the Amityville house. And I gotta admit the real story is super interesting, more so than what the movie portrayed actually. Unfortunately he kind of goes big and fast with the info and then realizing he had done what he could have spun into 20 minutes of story in 4 decided to reiterate everything he just said again and then he goes silent. He pops in here and there with reactions to the film. towards the end he gives his speil on ghosts and how the afterlife and all of that is bogus and then spins a yarn about his version of the afterlife, but it was interesting. I think if this guy had planned this out as a lecture he could have made this a reference level track, unfortunatly the majority of the time his silent.

76.) Commentary For Amityville II: The Possession (1982) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: OK, now I feel bad about complaining about the other commentary. This has got to be one of the worst commentaries I have ever heard. So this girl with nothing to do with the movie, and even nothing to do with the investigation surrounding the murders is by herself on here. She is the daughter of the guy who did the first track and the whole time I was wishing that he was the one doing this one as well. The entire track is her making short declarative statements and then being silent for several minutes followed by another declarative statement and more silence, the whole track. And they don't even have the movie going soft in the background or swelling the audio when she isn't talking it is dead silence. I mean not completely as from time to time you can hear her move but man, how this made it past quality control at Scream Factory is beyond me.

77.) Doctor Sleep (2019) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Hey, it's Starry Eyes again, that girl is just all over this challenge. I quite enjoyed this continuation of The Shining. The way it builds on the characters and expand the universe. It does dull the creep out factor of the original a bit but I can live with that and Ready Player One already started the chipping. I went with the Blu-Ray as it was the only one with the longer Director's Cut, come on studios, obviously the enthusiasts buying 4K discs are going to want the Directors Cut too. Only thing movie wise I might nitpick about, and why it didn't score higher, is that the lookalike imitation characters are somewhat jarring and sort of break your being in the movie as now you are thinking g about how close or not this actor is to the original, it sounds petty but it does break the flow.

(4 out of 5)




B-22.) Left Hand Brewing Company: Oktoberfest (Colorado)

My Thoughts: Hoppy soapy smell with a rather unpleasant initial reaction. Yeah there is caramel in there alright but it is burnt unpleasant caramel. Every sip is just like a eh what did I put in my mouth? Even as it warms and that initial bitter affront starts to subside it maintains a messy unpleasantness taste. Weird, this one has routinely scored closer to average over the years.

(1.5 out of 5)




B-23.) Tupps Brewery: Day Of The Dead Juicy Pale Ale (Texas)*

My Thoughts: Smells like a traditional IPA, has that uniquely hop pellet smell that instills fear in would be drinkers. But it is a milder IPA, with a bit of orange fruit. Not terrible but still an IPA, why did I buy this? Because I am a sucker for a good can.

(2 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste: Smells like grape, green grape. Very sharp, aftertaste is mild, doesn’t taste any alcohol... fruity… done.





78.) Amityville 3-D (1983) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Ah, here it is, the reason I bought the set. This has been the only one of the the 3 big 83' 3-D films that I have never seen. And as such I probably built it up in my head a bit too much. Tons of 3D gags and an interesting cast with Meg Ryan and the recently incarcerated Lori Loughlin as the curious teens but overall I was getting a strong been there done that almost 70's horror vibe. That was until the last 15 minutes when the whole things goes crazy awesome off the rales. I guess at this point they were in a post-Poltergeist world and needed to up the ante but damn! Up until this this was sitting at a 2.5-3 out of 5 but that last real was one of the best things I have seen in this challenge.

79.) Don't Answer The Phone! (1980) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Struck me as a sort of run of the mill psycho sexual killer flick. It's about a built Vietnam vet who poses as a photographer to lure would be victims to their deaths. His whole story line was acceptable boiler plate stuff but what I really liked in this movie was the cop part of the story, frequently played for laughs and investigating the seedier side of Hollywood and those 70's duds he was wearing. I had a thought while watching this, I wonder if all of the people filmed walking in the street in this and other similar movies know that they are in a film? I wonder if there are people out there that have purchased every version of Don't Answer The Phone! just to show off? Oh and also dug the ending climax.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Thoughts:
It's good, I like it but ending need to work on that. Yeah I can give 4.5 star. (Really?) Yeah, it's decent back then made it, some old stuff, oh my goodness. I don't know why they call it that? Because it's not really connected Don't Answer The Phone?

80.) Vidar The Vampire (2017) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Oh, that was a weird one. This b-side for my Zombiology blu is a Norwegian Vampire comedy, and a decent one at that. Vidar has a monotonous boring life so one day he prays to the lord to spice things up. Jesus shows up, rapes him and then they go out on the town as a couple of vampire adulterers. One of the things I think I liked so much about this was there is certainly a segment of the population who would be aghast by the content of this movie. My late grandparents would have been in shock. And I wonder is there going to be movies in 50 years that I find shocking? Will there be a 9/11 slapstick comedy set in the towers? Sorry, weird tangent there. I loved the subversion of religion here and the quirky comedy hit for me too, between the two movies I would highly recommend picking this double pack up.

(4 out of 5)




81.) Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark (2019) (4K UHD)*

My Thoughts: An attempt was made here to do the same thing to Scary Stories as was done to Goosebumps recently and the final product was fine. Characters were well played, it looked good it wasn't overly simplistic but it failed to really capture the books or how creepy the books actually were. It was a glossy Hollywood production and it felt the part. Perhaps there was too much in the way of wrap around but I guess no studio is going to make an updated version of The Willies at this point also maybe I am just a little too familiar with the source material. Props for working Me Tie Doughty Walker in though.

(3 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts: It was good, only 1 story I kinda know it is the big toe stew. But even the ones I haven’t seen they were pretty good. The most scariest was the spider in the cheek.




82.) The Hollywood Strangler Meets The Skid Row Slasher (1979) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: WTF? This almost isn't even a movie? At least by modern day standards. Filmed without sound it's clear that it was initially a film that was suppose to never have sound as the actors barely ever talk, instead mainly exchanging glances and gesturing. The "dubbing" is the weirdest thing, it's all internal monologue type stuff with a voice that doesn't match the actor at all. The movie it's self is just a loop of photographer takes pictures of and then kills girl and then walks along Sunset Boulevard, just over and over again. The women do all end up naked (and dead) but for a movie with so much nudity and murder its pretty boring. It's almost as if Don't Answer The Phone! was a better remake of this. Oh well, I guess we bought it for the Joe Bob Briggs commentary anyway, right?

(2 out of 5)




83.) Audio Commentary For The Hollywood Strangler Meets The Skid Row Slasher (1979) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: If you haven't listened to at least one Joe Bob audio commentary then you should. I know he is more commonly known for hosting but his tracks are the benchmark for a perfect commentary. They are a meld of inside, history and just plain making fun of that elevated a title beyond its content. This is a movie that without this track I would never consider revisiting again but know that this feature is on here it will eventually get another play. And considering the scope of my library and constant influx of new titles, that is saying something. And now I think we are at the part of this review where I am upset about myself not picking these up before they were all out of print. Yeah sure there are a few like this one that are still around for cheap but the ones with draw are all $50+. But such is life, 20 years ago me made a lot of purchasing choices that now me would disagree with and surely I am making those same mistakes now compared to myself in 20 more years time.

B-24.) Odell Brewing Company: Oktoberfest Marzen Style Lager (Colorado) - 2020 vs 2019*

2020 Thoughts: Guess I bought one of these last year and never drank it. I’m 2/3rds though the challenge without getting sick, this is great, I have gotten a cold the last several years around this time. Covid paranoia FTW. Smells like beer spilt on freshly cleaned sheets. Interesting. A very robust full bodied ale, if I was blind tasting I would think this was a German beer.Very light hops tickle around your mouth and a deep caramel Oktoberfest flavor with just a touch of a liquorish darkness to spice things up. I feel classy drinking this beer.

(4.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste:
Smells very hoppy. Thick, have taste, aftertaste is ok but begging was very bitter… umm I don’t like it. Oddly bitter.


2019 Thoughts: A little more of an effervescent pungent scent after a year in the drawer. And the taste has definitely changed. It’s really hard to say how much aging changes a beer with batches themselves vary from year to year. But I doubt this one finished with a sour apple zing when I bought it last year. Much lighter, smoother drink with barley and caramel on the back end and a tart closing. Odd development. Still a good beer though.

84.) Psychomania (1973) (DVD)*

My Thoughts: What a weird movie. A gang of ruffian punk British bikers make a supernatural deal for immortality, all they have to do first is die and then they comeback immortal and invincible. And as you can guess things tend to get worse when you give absolute power to those already on the wrong side of the law. Some good car chases and crazy european shagadellic decor. It's a British counter culture movie with a horror twist. I can't say that it was necessarily good but it was interesting. Seems like this would have been a very interesting title to have a historian track on but alas perhaps it is a bit too obscure for such frivolities.

(3 out of 5)




85.) Leprechaun (1993) (Blu-Ray)

My Thoughts: Such a weird movie to have gained enough success tho spawn 7 sequels. The Leprechaun is about a.. well... leprechaun that's lost his gold and will kill everyone in his way to get it back. Add to that a very liberal dose of Freddy, to the point of blatant rip off (phone scene) and you series perfect for the rental store. I have seen Leprechaun several times over the years it has a familiar horror movie set up, it's almost cozy to watch at this point, like a familiar re-run on tv. In it's initial outing this movie comes off as seemingly the most family friendly supernatural murderer movie, there is no nudity, surprisingly few kills, and one of our main characters is a wisecracking 90's kid. And remember when everyone did Leprechaun impersonation? Well now I get to use that skill from the past with the daughter and it won't come off as crazy dated and unfunny! On an acting note does it seem like the worst actor in this movie is the only one that made anything of themselves later; Jennifer Aniston? Bit of a scatter brained review but in the end it is a fun premise and delightfully cheesy movie and with the Leprechaun Complete Movie Collection routinely hitting the $10 it's a must have. Now the real question is do I acquire the most recent Warwick-less sequel The Leprechaun Returns?

(4 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts:
Why is that a bad leprechaun and not a good leprechaun? I like it. I like the girl who was in love with the guy already. This movie was really good. (Scary?) Not Scary.




B-25.) Elysian Brewing Company: Punkuccino Coffee Pumpkin Ale (Washington)*

My Thoughts: Smells like an occult book store. A really dark earthy coffee vampire scent. Wowza on that taste. You are getting coffee here, lots of black coffee. Also strong wood lacker taste, a very aggressive beer. Not tasting any pumpkin though. The initial bitterness subsides as it warms and it’s just a thick smooth coffee beer. If I was really reading into it I might say I could taste a bit of pumpkin around the fringes but that probably just me projecting. Decent coffee beer though.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Taste:
Seems like dark beer scent... very sour and bitter. But some smells like smoked wood chip smell. Oak or cherry maybe. Sooo bitter but I am sure dark beer lover like this. Not for me.

86.) Color Out Of Space (2019) (4K UHD)*

My Thoughts: Hey, it's The Cursedone with Annihilationeffects. I really dug this movie, a family of Jordy Verrills are living out in the sticks when a strange meteor rocks their farm and start having Cronenberg-ian effects. Not an original story by any stretch but what this does have going for it is a great setting and amazing effects. It is easily the most beautiful movie I have watched in the challenge thus far. And a decent companion to The Thing if you think about it. The only negative I have with this movie is that Nickolas Cage doing his crazy thing is just way to similar to other Nic Cage movie and almost takes you out of the story. Otherwise this is my bag and I don't know why I am making so many Austin Power references this challenge.

(4.5 out of 5)

My Wife's Thoughts:
It was good the beginning until middle but ending not great. I don’t care for it and easy to read what is going to happen the end and that is a little unrealistic and doesn’t solve anything and what happened to magnetic field or water contaminated? Just seems like alien attacking people. Need to have better story I am disappointed that ending. Yesterday’s movie way better.

(3 out of 5)





87.) Gate II (1990) (Blu-Ray)

My Thoughts: From a surface level Gate II is a lower budget sequel without a returning main character and is generally not really held up with same amount of esteem as it's predecessor. But as far as sequels go I found it very interesting. For the most part you never really got sequels to these awesome kid horror/adventure/scifi movies, think Monster Squad, Goonies, Silver Bullet, or even E.T. Gate II does a good job of evolving the storing with the now teenaged returning cast member. Having obsessed over the possibilities of the demon portal next door Terry returns to the scene of the first movie to try and control the otherworldly power. Initially it seems all his wishes are coming true until everything turns to shit. So much monkey paw this challenge. The movie is very interesting to look at, there is more stop motion and forced prospective effects like there were in the original and everything just very attractive to the eye. It is admittedly not nearly as groundbreaking as the first but for a continued universe story they could have done a lot worse.

(3.5 out of 5)

My Daughter's Thoughts:
It was good. The other movie is better. I liked when the guy showed the money and it turned into poop and he tried to take it off. Also that monster that is like... that part where they saw the monster and like the monster was in our bodies.




B-26.) Dead Armadillo Craft Brewing: Festbier Lager (Oklahoma)*

My Wife's Taste:

88.) Web Of The Spider (1971) (Blu-Ray)*

My Thoughts: Despite appearances to the contrary Kinski as Poe is only a framing device here, the ream movie is about a man accepting a 10 pound bet (approximately $350 adjusted for inflation & conversion) to stay the night in his family castle. A castle haunted by a group of very corporal ghosts. I found it to be quite a pleasant bit of old school horror, fantastic castle location and intriguing specters and stories of the night. There had to have been a dozen suits of armor in that place. I have got to get a suit of armor... next house.
