Re: The 17th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread***


Spoiler:

Spoiler:




THIS LIST IS COMPLETE

Goals for 2021:
1. Watch all Subset films
2. Hit the 100 movie goal
3. Complete checklist
4. Complete the "They Shoot Zombies" regular list 1-300 and the 21st Century list 1-100 (I'll be watching the titles I haven't already seen from those lists.)


TALLY:
* 117/100 movies watched during the challenge Sep 30-Oct 31
* SUBSET list -
Watched all
* THEME NIGHTS - Watched subset movies on their theme nights and usually a few more in theme
* CHECKLIST - completed
1910's - 2; 1920'S - 5; 1930'S - 4; 1940'S - 4; 1950'S - 3; 1960'S -8; 1970'S - 10; 1980'S - 20; 1990'S - 10; 2000'S - 16; 2010'S - 21; 2020'S -12

SEPT 30 (dusk on): Art House Crossover
1. Valerie And: Her Week of Wonders (1970)- ★★✰✰✰ - Very abstract and artsy, dreamlike film. Not my cup of tea.
  • They Shoot Zombies, Don't They? #296
  • Checklist: Subset: Language (Czech), Genre (Candy Cinema), Genre (Dream Horror), Ratings (Unrated)
2. Roadgames (1981) - ★★★✰✰ - Fun vintage Aussie thriller with a much lighter approach than other road flicks like Duel or The Hitcher.
  • Subset Movie
  • HoopTober - 4 movies from 1981
OCT 1: Fermentation of Fear
3. Slither (2006)- ★★★★✰ - Brilliant horror comedy about an invasion of alien parasites. Super funny and majorly gross body effects.
  • They Shoot Zombies, Don't They? #287
  • Subset movie. Checklist: subgenre: Extraterrestrials/Takes Place in Space
4. Dr Jekyll And Mr. Hyde (1920) - ★★★✰✰ - I'm not a big fan of silent films, but Barrymore's Hyde is so damn creepy! Best thing about this version.
  • They Shoot Zombies, Don't They? #281
  • Checklist: 6 Decades (pre-1930s), Movie and it's remake; Subgenre: Split Personality
5. Dr Jekyll And Mr. Hyde (1941)- ★★★★★- The best Jekyll and Hyde. How can you go wrong with Spencer Tracy and Ingrid Bergman?
  • They Shoot Zombies, Don't They? #275
  • Checklist: 6 Decades (1940s), Movie and it's remake; Subgenre: Fog
OCT 2: Slashers & Serial Killers
6. Silent Madness (1984) - ★★✰✰✰ - Watchable 80s slasher if you turn off your critical thinking. Weak script. The "no one will believe me" got old and had little payoff.
  • Subset pick; Checklist: Subgenre: 3D
7. Friday the 13th: Part 2 (1981)- ★★★✰✰ - This felt more routine and formulaic than #1 or The Final Chapter. Weaker cast too.
  • They Shoot Zombies, Don't They? #315
  • HoopTober: 4 movies from 1981
  • Checklist: Anniversary: 40th of Notable Horror Films, Directors: Steve Miner; Horror tropes: Killed during sex;
8. Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984)- ★★★✰✰ - I liked this more than part 2. Crispin Glover and Corey Feldman were fun. Third slasher of the night and the kills started to feel repetitive.
  • They Shoot Zombies, Don't They? #371
OCT 3: Subterranean Horror
9. The Severed Arm (1973)- ★★★✰✰ - I enjoyed this one. The premise was unique and reminded me of a campfire story (the hook hand!). Yes, the effects were laughable, and the production cheap. But I liked the story, so it kept me engaged.
  • Subset pick
  • Checklist: Cannibalism
10. In The Earth (2021)- ★★✰✰✰ - This one was a disappointment. I like eco horror so I was looking forward to it. I found it non-sensical and without any real pay-off.
  • HoopTober - Folk Horror
  • Checklist: subgenre - folk horror; subgenre: drunk horror; subgenre: mad scientist
11. The Creeping Flesh (1973)- ★★★★✰ -Fun vintage horror with Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. I liked the plot--a weird skeleton starts to grow flesh when it gets wet and there's a daughter to be experimented on as well. Good stuff.
  • Checklist: Actor Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing; Subgenre: With 2 or more horror legends
OCT 4: Chronological Face-Off (1921, 1946, 1971, 1996)
12. The Spiral Staircase (1946)- ★★★★✰ -I love this gothic pot-boiler. Always a pleasure to revisit it.
  • Subset pick
  • They Shoot Zombies #225
13. The Frighteners (1996)- ★★★★★-Loved this. Lots of original bits like the ghost partners and the numbers on the forehead. The killer reveal was fun. The yuppie guy/ghost was a hoot, and the FBI agent! OMG, he was superb.
  • Subset pick
  • They Shoot Zombies #374
  • Checklist: Make-up artist Rick Baker; Subgenre: Ghost/Haunting
  • Hooptober 8.0 - 2 haunted house films
14. Orlac's Hand (1924)- ★★✰✰✰ -There's some lovely creepy imagery in this and Conrad Velt was such a presence. But the slow pace about killed me. It felt interminable. So melodramatic!
  • They Shoot Zombies #223
  • Checklist: Decade: pre-1930s
15. She-Wolf of London (1946)- ★★★✰✰ -Not much London and no actual werewolf. Still, it's short and kept my attention. Decent vintage fun.
  • Checklist: Subgenre: Werewolf
16. The Mephisto Waltz (1971)- ★★★★✰ -I'm surprised I never see this discussed in horror circles. It's really a decent Satanist movie from the 70s. Not as good as Rosemary's Baby but still quite good, and the cast is terrific -- Alan Alda and Jacqueline Bisset among others.
  • Checklist: Subgenre: Satanist, First time view: Features a funeral scene
OCT 5: Ellvira's Movie Macabre
17. Bad Taste (1987)- ★✰✰✰✰ - I had the feeling I would hate this. And, oh God, I really did. Movie equivalent of Garbage Pail Kids trading cards. Middle school gross-out humor.
  • They Shoot Zombies #344
  • Checklist: Anniversary: Elvira
18. Witchfinder General (1968)- ★★★✰✰ - I like the historic theme of this, but Price as the Witchfinder is so horribly evil. The fact that this is based on actual events makes this a little hard to watch.
  • Subset pick
  • Hooptober 8.0 - 2 folk horror films
  • They Shoot Zombies #116
19. Splinter (2008)- ★★★★✰ - This is a really strong little creature feature. I loved the characters and the way the ex-con redeems himself in the end.
  • They Shoot Zombies #357
  • Checklist: Horror trope - Creepy gas station attendant
20. Paranoiac (1963)- ★★★★★ - Loved this. Reed is spectacular in this--mesmerizing, young, beautiful, and over-the-top in the best way.
  • They Shoot Zombies #953
  • HoopTober - 2 from your birth year; 2 Hammer Films
  • Checklist: Decade 60's
21. Leap of Faith: William Friedkin on the Exorcist (2019)- ★★★★✰ - This is a stellar doc about The Exorcist that mainly features Friedkin talking and footage from the film, but it's fascinating. Bonus: my husband enjoyed it too.
  • Checklist: Subgenre - Documentary
OCT 6: School's Out
22. Cutting Class (1989)- ★★★✰✰ -This is really pretty good. Lots of red herrings and misdirection about the killer. Tight script and well paced. Better than most slashers.
  • Subset
23. Detention (2011)- ★★✰✰✰ - I initially liked the style of this, but it lost me when they started the whole time travel thing. It just got so convoluted and OTT ridiculous.
  • They Shoot Zombies #989
24. Frontiere (2007)- ★★✰✰✰ - Another torture porn movie I've been avoiding that I watched in my bid to get through the They Shoot Zombies list.... This one has great production values and is well acted. I liked the set-up with the group of young thugs (protestors?) being badass in Paris and then escaping. The weird Nazi family was really interesting. However, the gore and brutality were a bit much for me.
  • They Shoot Zombies #581
  • Checklist: Language - French, 2 films with similar plots
  • HoopTober 8.0 - 6 countries (France)
25. Happy Death Day 2 U (2019)- ★★★✰✰ - More like 3.5 stars. I really liked the first Happy Death Day. It was so original. This one is equally well made, though the concept is not as fresh. Good sequel.
  • Checklist: Subgenre - Suicide; Watch a movie you've never seen that: features waking up from a nightmare
OCT 7: Ladies Who Kill
26. Carrie (1976)- ★★★★★ -Horror classic right up there with The Exorcist and The Omen. Phenomenal cast, great story. The theme of a bullied high school girl may not resonate with everyone, but it sure does with me.
  • Subset
  • They Shoot Zombies #20
  • Checklist: Composer - Pino Donaggio; Subgenre - Death by Electrocution; Title spoken by character;
27. The Woman (2011)- ★★★★★ -I'm shocked how much I loved this. They did a fantastic job of setting up realistic characters, especially the father, who seemed so normal initially, and was such a complete turd. Loved the abused-women-get-revenge aspect. The Woman was a badass!
  • They Shoot Zombies #535
  • Checklist: Subgenre: Cannibalism
28. Frankenstein Created Woman (1967)- ★★★✰✰ -This is an enjoyable Hammer though heavy on the love story and light on the Frankenstein and horror elements.
  • They Shoot Zombies #378
  • HoopTober 8.0 - 2 Hammer Films
29. The Devil's Rejects (2005)- ★★✰✰✰ -2.5 stars. I appreciated the style of this film, especially the Thelma-and-Louise ending with its ridiculous glam shots of the disturbing trio. I liked the crazy sheriff. However, the sadism in the hotel scenes and elsewhere was hard to stomach.
  • They Shoot Zombies #218
30. Crimson Peak (2015) - ★★★★✰ -I have a thing for gothic Victorian romances like Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. Crimson Peak feels like a Del Toro version of those stories. There's a once-wealthy noble family fallen into destitution, a magnificently splendid but decrepit mansion, and the darkest of family secrets--several of them. I gasped over the set design, was charmed by Hiddleston, and engaged in the story throughout. Something like this is so rare these days -- an original script, a Victorian horror story? I'm so glad Del Toro had the clout to get it made.
  • They Shoot Zombies #963
OCT 8: Joe Bob Says Check It Out
31. Slumber Party Massacre II (1987) - ★✰✰✰✰ - This film didn't read as humor to me so much as just nonsensical. I guess I'm not the target audience for this one!
  • Subset
  • Checklist: Trope - unreliable vehicle, female director
32. Nightbreed (1990)- ★★★✰✰ - Nice underdog story in which you root for the monsters. It's kind of a non-ending though.
  • They Shoot Zombies #355
33. The Ghost Breakers (1940)- ★★★✰✰ - I needed something light at this 1/3rd of the way through point. This was cute. Bob Hope travels with an heiress to a castle she inherited in Cuba which is supposedly haunted. Someone is out to kill her or frighten her off --but who and why? Most of the story takes place before they get to the castle, and there isn't a very long sequence with actual ghosts, but it's still fun. Some of Hope's jokes don't make sense now. And his sidekick, a black man, is portrayed in a super racist way. If you can overlook those flaws of it's time, it's a watchable romp
  • They Shoot Zombies #443
OCT 9: Strange Cinema
34. Grave Robbers (1989) - ★✰✰✰✰ - The plot was an amalgamation of cliches (Satanist killed decades ago comes back), all of which have been done better. Low production values, bad acting.... The women in the film did nothing but stand around and scream. Not a backbone among them. I got nothing out of this.
  • Subset
  • Checklist: Trope - language (Spanish)
35. Bug (2006) - ★★✰✰✰ - This is a very small movie, taking place mostly in an apartment. It feels more like a play. But in the end, it's pretty much one note (the bug paranoia) and just bleak and sad. Not entertaining. A shame because this is a great cast. I just hated the story.
  • They Shoot Zombies #498
36. Tales from the Hood (1995) - ★★★★✰ - I really enjoyed this. It feels a lot like the Creepshow movies. All segments were good, but I liked the doll one the best. Each segment had a social message--domestic abuse, gang violence, bad cops. The racism highlighted in most of the segments was uncomfortable but, unfortunately, more evident than ever in our current culture. Clarence Williams was amazing.
  • They Shoot Zombies #685
  • HoopTober 8.0 - films featuring POC
  • Checklist: Subgenre - Evil Doll, Anthology
37. Quiet Place II (2021) - ★★★★✰ - Good sequel. I love Cillian Murphy and this film has the same nail-biting tension as the first.
  • Checklist: Rating PG
38. Mimic (1997) - ★★★★✰ -Very solid big budget creature feature. I liked the entomology aspects of this. Plenty of action pay-off and decent characterizations.
  • They Shoot Zombies #685
OCT 10: Asian Buffet of Terror
39. A Page of Madness (1926)- ★★★✰✰ -I have no idea how to rate this. There was some wonderful b&w imagery in this, but there were no subtitles and it's impossible to follow what's going on. I only knew the custodian was the husband and about the daughter's wedding by reading the synopsis on imdb. Interesting though.
  • They Shoot Zombies #421
40. Battle Royale (2000)- ★★★★★ - Loved it. The fact that these were young kids battling it out made it so much creepier. Good range of characters, good kills. Glad I finally got to watch it.
  • Subset; They Shoot Zombies #446
41. Kuroneko (1968)- ★★★★✰ - Beautiful imagery and cinematography on this Japanese ghost story.
  • They Shoot Zombies #326
42. The Eye (2002)- ★★★★✰ - The plot has been done before (The Eyes of Laura Mars meets The Sixth Sense), but it's done very well here. I loved the final sequence. The idea of the shadow people is very creepy.
  • They Shoot Zombies #336
43. Embryo (1976)- ★★★✰✰ - Surprisingly decent despite the horrible low-res VHS quality. Fun script, great ending, and the best dog character I've seen on film perhaps ever. Wish there was a better copy of this.

OCT 11: Streaming Originals
44. The Mortuary Collection (2019)- ★★★✰✰ - Second viewing and it's still intense. Gorgeous scenery and great production values. The framing story is decent and has a surprise ending. The best story of the lot is the frat boy story, which is deliciously squicky. Two were just ok and I hated one. Worth a watch.
  • Subset. Checklist: Actor - Clancy Brown
45. L'Inferno (1911)- ★★★★★ - This is mesmerizing and harrowing. The effects are astonishing for the time. If you have any interest in classic lit or in the afterlife, I highly recommend checking this out.
  • They Shoot Zombies #120
46. The Ghoul (1933)- ★★★✰✰ - Quite good. Karloff plays an Egyptologist who is dying. He pays his fortune to get a jewel used for eternal life. A variety of people are after the jewel. He dies and is supposed to be buried with the jewel, but what follows is a farce in which a number of different parties are after the jewel including a reanimated Karloff. There's a subplot with a young couple who fall in love during the shenanigans in a very 1930's way. More funny than scary but has some nice gothic moments and imagery.
  • They Shoot Zombies #314
  • Checklist: Actor - Boris Karloff
47. The Neon Demon (2016)- ★★★★✰ - Striking imagery in this intense little film about beauty. The ending came as a shock. The portrayal of the LA model industry is very cynical and bleak but probably accurate.
  • They Shoot Zombies #819
48. The Bat (1959)- ★★✰✰✰ - Great cast but I guessed the killer long before the reveal and there really wasn't much horror to it (though it shows that genre on IMDB).

OCT 12: In Name Only - Unofficial Sequels
49. Tombs of the Blind Dead (1971)- ★★★✰✰ --More like 2.5 stars. Mainly, it's black skeletons in cowls and on horseback chasing people. Not scary but moderately entertaining and creepy imagery.
  • They Shoot Zombies #240
  • Checklist: Director (Amando de Ossorio), Format (DVD)
50. The Fall of the House of Usher (1928), Jean Epstein director- ★★★✰✰ - The story was very slow but worth watching for the haunting visuals, especially around the funeral and 'haunting' afterwards.
  • They Shoot Zombies #120
51. Prom Night II (1987)- ★★✰✰✰ -- A mixed bag for me. Most of the cast was weak, especially the lead girl. Slow starting. However, there were some interesting bits in the third act. Not enough to elevate it over B movie status for me.
  • Subset film
OCT 13: Skeptical Inquirer
52. Curse of the Demon (1957)- ★★★★✰ -- I've seen this a few times. Previously, I thought it had a cool retro vibe but it didn't hold my attention. I enjoyed it more this year. I think I've been watching so much hard core stuff this was a nice change.
  • They Shoot Zombies #65
  • Subset; Checklist - Subgenre - giant monster
53. Wrong Turn (2003)- ★★★★✰ -- The cast elevates this above your typical back woods killer story. Jennifer Love Hewitt, et all. Tight script, truly creepy deformed inbred cannibal killers, and some tension-inducing chase sequences. Had me on the edge of my seat.
  • They Shoot Zombies #367
54. Bubba-ho-tep (2002)- ★★★✰✰ -- This movie is as much about ageing as it is about the supernatural. Bruce Campbell was terrific as Elvis, old and stuck in a low-rent old folks home in East Texas. There's lots of set up and flashbacks of how Elvis ended up here. The supernatural mystery in the home involves a mummy. Definitely unique.
  • They Shoot Zombies #479
55. 1408 (2007)- ★★★✰✰ -- I love the setup on this film with Cusak, the skeptic, investigating supposedly haunted hotels and never finding anything real. Then he insists on investigating room 1408 at the Dolphin. Samuel L Jackson is fun, if underused, as the hotel manager who tries to dissuade him by describing all the people who have died in that room. With that intense a setup, it's hard to then pull off a truly scaring haunted room sequence. It fell a bit flat for me. But there were some interesting ideas and effects.
  • They Shoot Zombies #397
OCT 14: Horror Documentaries
56. In Search of Darkness (2019)- ★★★✰✰ -- Watched the first 90 minutes. Some interesting commentary.
  • Subset
57. Hostel (2005)- ★★★✰✰ - This was not nearly as torture-porny as I feared. There's a lot of setup and escape time, so the amount of onscreen gore isn't bad. As an American who's travelled in Europe, I found the concept believable and unsettling.
  • They Shoot Zombies #202
58. You're Next (2011)- ★★★✰✰ - This home invasion horror movie has a murder mystery tint to it that I really enjoyed. I didn't see the twists coming. A nice droll sense of humor at times as well.
  • They Shoot Zombies #314
59. The Walking Dead (1936)- ★★★✰✰ - Boris Karloff is one of my favorites. He's always fascinating to watch. But the story was just OK. .
  • They Shoot Zombies #391
60 & 61. Joe Bob's Halloween Hoedown: Angel (2021)- .★★★★✰ - Great stuff-- both the movie for its vintage vibe and terrific character actors (and killer), and all the Joe Bob material with guest David Gordon Green. I'm counting it as 2 since the movie itself was 1:34 and the rest of the 2:55 min running time was Joe Bob stuff.

OCT 15: Letterboxd Top 250 Horror
62. Cure (2011)- ★★★★✰ -- Unique police procedural mystery with a trippy killer/method.
  • Subset;; Checklist - writer
  • They Shoot Zombies #401
63. Die, Die My Darling! (1965)- ★★★✰✰ -- 3.5 stars. Hammer potboiler in which Tallulah Bankhead chews up the scenery and steals every scene. Fun!
  • They Shoot Zombies #770
64. Orphan (2009)- ★★★✰✰ - 3.5 stars. This is a very dark "evil child" movie. There's an interesting twist at the end and a dramatic climax.
  • They Shoot Zombies #419
65. The Stepfather (1987)- ★★★✰✰ - Solid serial killer/black widower story. And the dog is adorable.
  • They Shoot Zombies #359
OCT 16: 1980's Video Spotlight: VCI/Unite
66. Wes Craven's New Nightmare (2011)- ★★★✰✰ -- Wow, this was so meta! The actress who plays Nancy is living in LA with her son and husband. She doesn't want to do any more Freddy movies. But someone is calling her who sounds like Freddy and she's having nightmares about Freddy.... This was a creative way to bring back a franchise after the villain was killed off. But I find Freddy movies repetitive in general, so I didn't love it.
  • They Shoot Zombies #221
67. Sleep Tight (2011)- ★★★✰✰ -- Truly creepy thriller in which a concierge in an apartment building spies on his guests and stalks a beautiful young tenant. What elevates this script is the psychological spin. The only way he can feel happiness is to make others miserable. His techniques will make you paranoid about how easy it is for someone to get into your private space and what they can do there.
  • They Shoot Zombies #895
68. Tower of Evil (1972)- ★★✰✰✰ -- Not bad for a low budget 70's horror. Doesn't fare too well compared to other movies I've seen this challenge.
  • Subset
69. Amer (2009)- ★✰✰✰✰ -- I have no f*cking idea what I just watched. 1 star just for some interesting visuals. But wow, I kind of hated this.
  • They Shoot Zombies #510
OCT 17: Theater of Blood
70. Fade to Black (1980)- ★★✰✰✰ -- I thought this sounded interesting with all the film tie-ins, but that didn't help this dull and slow film. It just wasn't very good. The ending was OK. One bright spot: A young Mickey Rourke in a small role as a young asshole/bully.
  • Subset; Checklist: Sub-genre - split personality
71. Ichi the Killer (2001)- ★★★✰✰ -- Loads of style and an unexpected twist on the personality of Ichi make this a fun watch. The constant violence towards women was hard to stomach, though.
  • They Shoot Zombies #440
  • Checklist: Director (Takahashi Mike)
72. Horror Castle (1963)- ★★✰✰✰ -Heavy on gothic atmosphere, especially the castle's torture chamber. A bit of a mystery (who IS the red cloaked figure?), Christopher Lee in a minor role with facial scars, and stock footage of Hitler. The backstory of the madman was interesting. I suppose I've watched far too many horror movies this month to get too excited about this one, but it wasn't bad.
  • Hooptober: Watch 2 films from your birth year
73. Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995)- ★★✰✰✰ - 2.5 stars.I wanted something light during an October 100 horror movie challenge. This was a nice palette cleanser but not one of Mel Brooks' finest. I adore Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles. This simply wasn't as funny, though the performances by Steven Webber as Jonathan Harker, Peter MacNicol as Renfield, and Amy Yasbeck as Mina were all stellar. Renfield stole the show.

74. Scream 2 (1997)- ★★★✰✰ -This is best watched back-to-back with the first movie. I watched that perhaps 2 years ago, and Scream 2 is very much based on #1, with a movie called Stab premiering that fictionalizes the events of the first movie and the plot involving the survivor, Sidney, now in college. The masked killer is on the loose again and killing people close to Sidney. Who can she trust? The reporter, Gale, and deputy Dewey are also back. It's a light slasher with a predictable ending--popular and entertaining, but not very deep or unique.
* They Shoot Zombies #304
* Checklist - make-up artist

OCT 18: Zonbies
75. Planet Terror (2007)- ★★★✰✰ -- Great cast in this and plenty of style. Reminds me a bit of a 12 year old's idea of the perfect movie. But hey, nothing wrong with that!
  • They Shoot Zombies #384
  • Subset; Checklist - Film Composer
76. Hush (2016)- ★★★★✰ -- What makes this movie unique (ish) is the fact that the writer is deaf and can't hear the killer. There's a creative use of sound design, sometimes the movie going silent in her POV. The script also uses her strengths (vibrations, etc) to turn the tables. The tension is high throughout and I loved the ending. Very well acted and directed. Had some Hitchcockian and Stephen King notes.
  • Checklist: Producer Jason Blum
77. Zombieland (2007)- ★★★★★ -- I love this nerd-faces-the-apocalypse, found-family zombie movie. I love that it's more about the characters and their relationship than zombie fighting scenes. Don't get me wrong, there are those too, but what elevates this zombie movie from a zillion others is the tone and characters.
  • They Shoot Zombies #231
78. Dead Snow (2009)- ★★★★✰ -- I saw this years ago. A group of friends go to a remote cabin for the weekend and awaken a Nazi zombie hoard who attack the cabin. On rewatch, it's still as much fun. There's a nice tongue-in-cheek humor with definite Evil Dead vibes, which they even mention on screen. Some funny moments, tension, and tons of gore. Very well done.
  • They Shoot Zombies #413
OCT 19: Mysteryy
79. The Ninth Gate (1999)- ★★★★★ -- I love this movie. I think this is the third time I've watched it. My favorite subgenre of horror is the occult--specifically films that take the occult seriously and don't just copy the old spinning-head-demonic-possession stuff. That's why A Dark Song is in my top 5 films, and I also love As Above, So Below. This film is in that category and does it extremely well, IMHO. The three books that have different illustrations (book nerd alert!), the mysterious angel/demon helper, the rich collectors of the esoteric, European locations, the mystery format... I love it all.
  • They Shoot Zombies #460
  • Subset; Checklist: Subgenre- based on a novel
80. Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932) - ★★★✰✰ -- Lugosi is so creepy and strong in this. Much better than Dracula. He plays a mad scientist/sideshow man who shows "Eric", the ape man. He's determined to prove Eric is a missing link by breeding Eric with a human woman. There's a King Kong-esque finale.
  • They Shoot Zombies #276
  • Checklist: Actor - Lugosi
81. The Hound of the Baskervilles (1939) - ★★★✰✰ -- A classic version of this story with one of the best Holmes and Watson. It does feel a bit dated to me though after the BBC Sherlock series.
  • They Shoot Zombies #278
OCT 20: Vampires & Werewolves
82. Blood for Dracula (1974)- ★★★✰✰ -- I saw this years ago, and all I remembered was Dracula puking all the time. lol. This is super European and Udo Kier is fascinating. But the story is pretty shallow.
  • They Shoot Zombies #376
  • Subset; Checklist: Actor - Udo Kier
83. The Company of Wolves (1984) - ★★★✰✰ -- An anthology of sorts with granny telling various werewolf stories which are told in vignettes. The main framing story has a young girl who meets a handsome nobleman in the woods. Engaging if a bit arty. I liked the vignettes better than the main story.
  • They Shoot Zombies #255
84. Daughters of Darkness (1971) - ★★★✰✰ -- it definitely is a bit slow. Very European in feel. An enjoyable vampire story, but with some weird bits. All the characters were pretty reprehensible. Valerie, the only decent one, was whiny and weak. A fun enough watch. I give it 6/10.
  • They Shoot Zombies #274
  • Subset. Checklist: Subgenre - travelogue, euro horror
OCT 21: Hooded Figures
85. The Collector (2009)- ★★★✰✰ -- I loved the main character--he was smart, determined, and had the heart of a hero. That kept me watching despite the brutality. But I hated the ending.
  • They Shoot Zombies #586
  • Subset
86. Dune (2021)- ★★★★★ -- Loved it! Gah. This is my favorite sci-fi/fantasy story. I loved the David Lynch version, and I love this. TImothee Chalmet is mesmerizing and fits the idea of a young heir better than Kyle MacLaughlan. The only thing I didn't like was that it wasn't the complete story. Apparently, Warner Bros is going to see how Part One does before even greenlighting Part two. I want it now!
  • WILDCARD #1
87. Candyman (2021)- ★★★✰✰ -- This film has great production values and is very slick. There's a lot to like -- good character development, sympathetic artist lead and his girlfriend, Vanessa Williams as the mom, incorporation of the original story... But it is very "woke" with gentrification and the slaughter of innocent black men being the "stain" that created the Candyman. It's not bad, but it's very heavy-handed. The death scenes are mostly off camera or very remote. Not quite up to the original.
  • Checklist: Actor (Virginia Madsen)
88. Strait-Jacket (1964)- ★★★✰✰ -- Three stars for the pulpiness of this and having fun laughing at it. The twist was visible from space. Crawford chewing the scenery is always a spectacle.
  • They Shoot Zombies #586
OCT 22: Supernatural, Quiet/Soft
89. The Empty Man (2020)- ★★★✰✰ -- It was very long and had a lot of different elements that made it feel like a mash-up. An urban legend (empty man), a prologue in Bhutan, a missing girl, suicidal teens, a weird cult... and the ending felt a bit like Angel Heart where the protagonist has been set-up all along. I agree with others that I didn't feel like I understood the ending.
  • Subset
90. The Man Who Laughs (1928)★★★✰✰ -- 2.5 stars. This has some wonderful pathos, and I liked the ending. But I was bored through a lot of it.
  • They Shoot Zombies #232
91. The House by the Cemetery (1981)- ★★✰✰✰ -- The terrible English dubbing hurts this film, especially that of the weirdly beautiful child actor, Bob. A family moves into a house by the cemetery and the father is researching the man who lived there previously, a professor who killed his family there. Bob starts seeing a ghostly little girl. A strange young nanny shows up. This is a mishmash of ideas, from a hand wielding a knife (serial killer) or an undead zombie-like prof in the basement, to ghosts. The gore is over the top disgusting. Feels like a budget Amityville. Not terrible, but not my jam.
  • They Shoot Zombies #420
  • Checklist: Writer, OHMC Favorite
92. We Are Still Here (2015)- ★★★✰✰ - I probably have watched too many horror movies this month, but this was just ok to me. A grieving couple move into a new house that is haunted by horrible entities, but the wife thinks it's their dead son. Bleak US landscape and some decent scares.
  • They Shoot Zombies #995
  • Checklist: Actress Elissa Dowling
93. Old (2021)- ★★★✰✰ -- I was really looking forward to it. The concept was super interesting. The "twist ending" was kind of silly. Just OK.

OCT 23: Overlook Hotel
94. Freaky (2020)- ★★★★✰ --My favorite type of horror movie--slick production, great actors, lots of style, and a sense of humor along with the thrills. The best part of this is watching Vince Vaughn act like a teenaged girl. Newton did a great job too.
  • Subset; Checklist: writer
95. Wolf Creek (2005)- ★★✰✰✰ --I put off watching this forever since I'm not a fan of torture porn. Finally watched it. On the good side, the torture-y segments were not the entire film. There's a good deal of set-up of the characters, which I found realistic and engaging. The early menace, when you know something will happen, but the characters don't, was effective and tense. But the violence was intense. Not something I'd rewatch.
  • They Shoot Zombies #209
  • Checklist: subgenre - takes place on holiday, based on a true story
96. The Strangers (2008)- ★★★✰✰ --Super intense and well done home invasion thriller. But man, hard to take.
  • They Shoot Zombies #227

97. Triangle (2009)- UK - ★★★★★ --This is a mind fuck kind of movie. I loved it.
  • Subset
  • They Shoot Zombies #458
98. Horrors of the Black Museum (1959) - UK - ★★★✰✰- 2.5 stars. The film has a nice vintage London vibe, but the pacing is slow and the story is fairly weak.
  • They Shoot Zombies #458
  • Checklist: Producer
99. Der Student von Prag (1913) - Germany - ★★✰✰✰- Watch it for the historic value. Very slow pacing and not much happens.
  • They Shoot Zombies #241
Un Chien Andalou (1929) - France - ★★★✰✰- Bizarre.
  • They Shoot Zombies #383
  • This is only :16 long, so I'm counting it with Der Student von Prag, which is 1:16 on YouTube
100. Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key (1972) - Italy - ★★★★✰- Fun, uber-sleazy version of Poe's The Black Cat. I had fun with it.
  • They Shoot Zombies #991
OCT 25: One Word Titles
101. Possessor (2020)- ★★★✰✰ -- I really liked the sci-fi concept behind this, but it was SO VIOLENT. Lots of vicious repeated stabbing, gunshots, blood... it was a bit much. The concept involves a company where they can kidnap someone, put an 'implant' in their head, and then an agent can take over their brain and make them do things. Of course, it goes terribly wrong. Well worth watching if you can take the brutality.
  • Subset
102. The Hand (1981)- ★★★★✰ -- I love this era in horror--creepy, cheesy, weird science. I recognize this is no masterpiece, but I really enjoyed it.
  • Hooptober - 4 movies made in 1981
103. Cube (1997)- ★★★✰✰ -- The cube and the traps were cool. This was more of a character-driven drama than anything, seeing how the individuals responded under pressure. I enjoyed it but hubs said it was "the worst movie he'd ever seen". He hated the monotonous locations and the constant arguing.
  • They Shoot Zombies #228
OCT 26: Suburban Horror
104. Stepford Wives (1975)- I watched this years ago and just rewatched for a Halloween challenge. It's such a great concept (think pre-cursor to Handmaid's Tale meets Disney animatronics). The idea carries it through what is a mild amount of action and straight-forward plot. The best character is Paula Prentiss as Bobbie, the free-spirited best friend who mocks all the docile housewives of Stepford. Even her robot scenes steal the show.
  • They Shoot Zombies #347
105. Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988)- ★★★✰✰ -- Tons of body horror in this. It was okay but much less focused than the original. Kind of all over the place.
  • They Shoot Zombies #266; Checklist - composer
106. The Gate (1988)- ★★✰✰✰ -- I didn't love this. It seems aimed at young adults. And the claymation monsters were more ridiculous than scary. I know many people love this because it was a childhood favorite. But it didn't translate to me as a (very adult) first time viewer.
  • Subset
  • They Shoot Zombies #654
OCT 27: Four Seasons of Deatah
107. The Untold Story (1993)- SUMMER - ★★✰✰✰ -- -2.5 stars. This movie was so schizophrenic. The cop gang was a comedy of the bumbling ineptitude. And then there were rape and murder scenes that were horrific and so explicit. The rape of the waitress was especially hard to take. Interesting since it was based on a real case.
  • Subset
  • They Shoot Zombies #806
108. Piranha 3D (2010)- SPRING - ★★★✰✰ - Set during Spring Break in Florida. Lots of gore and some tongue-in-cheek absurdity. Fun creature feature--if you can stomach an abundance of bare boobs and sexist b.s. I liked Elizabeth Shue in this.

109. Dead of Winter (1987)- WINTER - ★★★★✰ - This felt a bit like a play. There was a convoluted (and unlikely) thriller plotline that was unique and kept you guessing. Fantastic cast with Mary Steenburgen and Roddy McDowall. I liked the frigid winter storm atmosphere and the claustrophobia it induced.

110. Half Light (2006) - FALL - ★★★★✰ - I quite enjoyed this. It was a softer, "ghost/thriller" and was a nice change from some of the harder-core horror I've been watching. Add gorgeous scenery, some fall leaves, and a hunky lighthouse keeper, and I'm all in.

OCT 28: Anthology
111. Body Bags (1993)- ★★★✰✰ -- Made for TV movie in which John Carpenter plays morgue attendant and tells the story of various people in body bags. The segments include a serial killer who attacks a girl who works night shift in a gas station, a man with thinning hair who gets a radical treatment, and a baseball player who loses an eye and gets a replacement from a serial killer. The style is tongue-in-cheek and I loved the morgue segments. Fun.
  • Subset
112. V/H/S (2012)- ★★★✰✰ -- Pretty damn good found footage anthology. It would have rated a 4 except that in several segments young guys act like total douchebags. Realistic? Probably. But irritating. My favorites were the haunted house one at the end ("10/31/98") and "The Sick Thing that Happened to Emily When she was Younger."
  • They Shoot Zombies #759
OCT 29: Giallo
113. Opera (1987)- ★★★★✰ -- This is great. The opera production setting was unique, the murder mystery was interesting, and there was some terrific set pieces like the bit with forcing the eyes open. The soundtrack and operatic singing added a whole extra dimension. This may be my favorite giallo so far
  • Subset
  • They Shoot Zombies #230
OCT 30: Demonic/Witchcraft/Hell
114. Evil Dead II (1987)- ★★✰✰✰ -- This is hugely popular and on a bunch of lists, but I found it pretty stupid and not funny. I'm sure it was quite original when it first came out..
  • Subset
  • They Shoot Zombies #19
OCT 31: All Hallow's Eve
115. Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin (2021)- ★★✰✰✰ -- Not very good. The found footage camerawork was annoying. But the setting (Amish country in a snowy landscape) was nice and the ending had some good thrills.

116. Halloween Kills (2021)- ★★★✰✰ -- I liked seeing all the original characters from the original film, and the "townspeople fight Michael" theme. But it just seemed to not quite work for some reason. The last quarter of the film was good. I have the feeling this is one that will get better with age.
  • Subset
117. Slaxx (2021)- ★★★✰✰ -- Broad satire about a uber trendy clothing company. Their cheap labor practices in India leads to haunted cotton in their new body-shaping jeans Pretty ridiculous and illogical even for a fantasy. But worth seeing.

7. House Of 1000 Corpses (2003 - Blu-ray) - Still Rob Zombie's best movie and I will fight anyone who disagrees. ****
*8. The Phantom Carriage (1921 - Streaming) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset review thread. ****
9. Fright Night (1985 - Blu-ray) - Just all around awesome movie. Forget the remake ever happened. *****
10. The Baby (1973 - Blu-ray) - Fucking weird but will hold your interest every time. ***1/2
11. Sleepaway Camp (1983 - Blu-ray) - Friday The 13th rip-off but one of the better ones. Fun to bask in the early 80's. ***

*18. The Wax Mask (1997 - Blu-ray) - A bore. *1/2
19. Carrie (1976 - Streaming) - A classic. *****
*20. Killer Crocodile (1989 - Blu-ray) - Jaws rip-off with zero scares. Sheer boredom. *
*21. Horrors Of Spider Island (1960 - Blu-ray) - Nudie Cutie meets 50's Horror Movie. Not as interesting as it sounds. *1/2
22. Slumber Party Massacre II (1987 - Streaming) - Nonsensical bizarro sequel with music! Just strange. **
*23. Grave Robbers (1989 - Streaming) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset thread. **1/2

*25. The Mortuary Collection (2019 - Streaming) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset thread. ***1/2
26. Graduation Day (1981 - Blu-ray) - A solid slasher with some humor to it and some hilarious music scenes. ***

*30. Dogs (1976 - Blu-ray) - Horror movie about scary dogs with the friendliest looking dogs ever. **
*31. Grizzly (1976 - Blu-ray) - Dull but decently gory Jaws rip-off. *1/2
32. Day Of The Animals (1977 - Blu-ray) - Plays more like a '70's disaster film than a horror movie. A wacked out Leslie Nielsen for the win! **
33. The Ruins (2008 - Blu-ray) - Decent movie w/ some solid gore. I need to read the book. I have heard that it is awesome. ***
34. Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II (1987 - Streaming) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset thread. ***
*35. Possum (2018 - Streaming) - A very slow moving yet creepy film that doesn't give you all the answers easily. **1/2
36. Eraserhead (1977 - Blu-ray) - What can be said about this one that hasn't already been said? My son summed it up at the end when he exclaimed, "What the fuck did you have me watch?" ***
*37. Curse Of The Demon (1957 - Streaming) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset thread. ****1/2
38. Re-Animator (1985 - Blu-ray) - "Integral Cut": this version is too long and makes the movie drag. I recommend the Unrated version. ***
39. From Beyond (1986 - Blu-ray) - Better than the more often mentioned Re-Animator. ****
*40. 3 From Hell (2019 - Streaming) - Rob Zombie just needs to call it quits on the movie making. *1/2
*41-43. In Search Of Darkness: Part II (2020 - Streaming) - Just as good as the first one. I actually enjoyed this one a little more. ****
*44. The Woman (2011 - Blu-ray) - Didn't care for this one. Mostly stomach churning female abuse. *1/2
45. Turistas (2006 - Blu-ray) - I love this movie. It has the perfect amount of gore, tension, humor and "what would I do in this situation" to keep me interested. ****
46. Spider Baby (1967 - Blu-ray) - A bizarre little film with memorable characters. It deserves its cult status. ***
*47. Tower Of Evil (1972 - Streaming) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset thread. ***
*48. Fade To Black (1980 - Streaming) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset thread. ***
49. The Mummy (1932 - Blu-ray) - Have garnered more appreciation of this movie as I have gotten older. But I still want more Mummy action! ***
50. The Changeling (1980 - Blu-ray) - George C. Scott is some damn impressive in this movie. Great atmosphere, story and score! ****1/2
51. The Invisible Man (1933 - Blu-ray) - Perfect mix of horror and humor with great special effects for the time! ****1/2
52. Dracula's Daughter (1936 - Blu-ray) - Too much funny, not enough scary. **1/2
*53. The Mummy's Hand (1940 - Blu-ray) - Appears this is the precursor to Abbott & Costello Meet the various monster movies...without A & C. ***
*54. Dominion: Prequel To The Exorcist (2005 - Blu-ray) - A labor of boredom. *
55. The Collector (2009 - Streaming) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset thread. ***1/2
*56. The Invisible Man Returns (1940 - Blu-ray) - I found this movie to be a very disappointing follow-up to the fantastic original. **1/2
57. When A Stranger Calls (1979 - Blu-ray) - Great opening 20 minutes and ending 20 minutes. The rest is fluff. Still...it is a chilling 40 minutes. ***
58. Happy Birthday To Me (1981 - Blu-ray) - Rather uninspired slasher with a ridiculous twist ending. **1/2
*59. Triangle (2009 - Streaming) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset thread. ***1/2
*60. The Ninth Gate (1999 - Streaming) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset thread. ***
61. Primal (2010 - DVD) - Decent Aussie remake of Cabin Fever/Evil Dead. ***
*62. Student Bodies (1981 - Blu-ray) - Has several very funny gags but very uneven. The antique Scary Movie. **1/2
63. Jekyll & Hyde Together Again (1982 - Blu-ray) - Haven't seen this since I was a kid. Should have kept it that way. Not remotely funny. Just dumb. *
64. Halloween (1978 - 4K UHD) - A classic that I never tire of. ****1/2
65. Halloween (2018 - 4K UHD) - Decent but it seems to get a little worse with every viewing. ***
*66. Halloween Kills (2021 - Theater) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset thread. **

*69. The Untold Story (1993 - Streaming) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset thread. **1/2
70. Insidious (2010 - Blu-ray) - Fair Poltergeist rip-off. Not sure why this one was so popular. **1/2
*71. Body Bags (1993 - Streaming) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset thread. *1/2
*72. Slaxx (2020 -Streaming) - see my thoughts in the dedicated subset thread. ***
73. Feast II: Sloppy Seconds (2008 - DVD) - This movie earns points just for the crazy baby and midget scenes. ***1/2
74. Murder Party (2007 - DVD) - Good first movie by the director that would bring us near perfection Blue Ruin and Green Room. ***
75. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986 - Blu-ray) - Not great, not terrible follow-up to one of the greatest horror films of all time. **1/2
*76. Trick Or Treats (1982 - Blu-ray) - Just horrible on basically every level. Almost unwatchable. 1/2 a star
77. The Exorcist: Extended Director's Cut (1973 - Blu-ray) - Just finished the book and this movie follows it almost perfectly. A masterpiece. *****

Re: The 17th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread***

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

RESULTS:
First time views: 49/81 = 60.3%
(BLU RAY) views: 72/81 = 88.9%

Sept 30th
1)Pet Sematary ('19) - (4k BLU RAY)
2)The Thing ('11) - (BLU RAY) I learned that if cavity fillings are the only method to prove your are not an alien life form replicating organic material, then I am for sure safe. Awful effects, not sure whose decision it was to scrap the practical effects they had already started. Seriously, was there one producer or anyone involved in making this film who stood up and questioned the cartoonish effects? 3/10
3)Don't Be Afraid of the Dark ('10) - (BLU RAY) I learned the best way to connect with your boyfriend's daughter is to fight some evil fairy folk. 4/10

Oct 1st
4)Malignant - (streaming) I learned to make sure your surgeon informs you of ALL the risks before undergoing any risky surgery. Lesser James Wan output. Once the twist hits, becomes a completely different film and some of the scenes look outright silly and cartoonish, but I'm ok with it. 5/10
5)Darkroom - (BLU RAY) I learned that if you're being stabbed from the backseat while driving, don't ease off the gas and gently apply the brake to a easy stop. Give that sucker some gas so they go flying! 4/10

Oct 2nd
6)Terror is a Man- (BLU RAY) I learned that it's probably not the best idea to stay on any island in which the natives get up and leave suddenly in the middle of the night. 5/10
7)The Killing Kind- (BLU RAY) I learned to securely tighten a garbage can lid when disposing of bodies, or just simply don't kick them down a giant hill. 5/10
8)Spiral- (BLU RAY) I learned it's never a good idea to go straight to the dangling item making noise when investigating a room as that is what the killer is counting on. 6/10

Oct 3rd
9)Brides of Blood- (BLU RAY) I learned it's never a good idea to be around any people who tell you they returned to ancestral practices. I thought the moving tree branches were the best effects in the movie. 4/10
10)Return of the Living Dead - (BLU RAY) I learned to not party in a graveyard. 9/10
11)Final Destination - (BLU RAY) ? 7/10
12)Final Destination 2 - (BLU RAY) I learned to not scare a flock of pigeons near any construction site. 7/10

Oct 4th
13)Mad Doctor of Blood Island - (BLU RAY) I learned that green chlorophyll monsters hate radio static. Has that annoying zoom in/zoom out cliche every time the monster is on the screen, but still the best in the trilogy. 6/10

Oct 5th
14)Fear Street: 1994 - (streaming) I learned not to spill any of your blood near any witch burial site. 6/10

Oct 6th
15)Fear Street: 1978 - (streaming) I learned it's fun to go looking for a witch's house, but not fun to go browsing their secret tunnels. My favorite of the three, but this is likely due to my fondness for summer camp horror films. 7/10

Oct 7th
16)Fear Street: 1666 - (streaming) ? Was like two movies in one, the 1666 portion then bringing it back to the 1994. I missed the awesome soundtrack in the 1666 portion, but was probably my least favorite of the three. 5/10

Oct 8th
17)Suspiria ('77) - (BLU RAY) I learned to research your school's history before committing to attend. Masterpiece, love the color schemes, the whole film is a nightmare you don't wake up from. 10/10
18)Beast of Blood - (BLU RAY) ? 4/10
19)Unmasked 25 - (BLU RAY) I learned not to ask a serial killer for an autograph. This was a surprise for me and a hell of a lot of fun. Imagine Jason Voorhees describing a dress in detail as well as any fashion designer or talking about his history that turned him into a monster then immediately starts to quote poetry. 8/10

Oct 9th
20)Return of the Living Dead 2 - (BLU RAY) I learned that punching a zombie in the face is like punching right through a rotting pumpkin. Fun and great effects of course, but just not the magic that is the first film. 6/10
21)Inferno - (BLU RAY) I learned to not attempt putting out a curtain fire by yourself. Same formula that Suspiria follows and WOW at that soundtrack, but I'll always prefer Suspiria. 7/10
22)Return of the Living Dead 3 - (BLU RAY) ? 5/10
23)Slaughterhouse - (BLU RAY) I learned that any good meat cutter (and killer) must have knowledge of anatomy and the skilled hands of a surgeon. 6/10

Oct 10th
24)Mother of Tears - (BLU RAY) I learned that it's sometimes good to listen to the voices in your head. Don't know why Argento decided to change the formula, but by golly is this so drastically different from the first two. 2/10
25)Patrick - (BLU RAY) ? 5/10
26)Halloween ('78) - (BLU RAY) I learned to pay closer attention the next time a child tells you the boogeyman is right outside 10/10
27)Incubus - (BLU RAY) I learned that red sperm is definitely a sign you got an Incubus demon on your hands 6/10

Oct 11th
28)Halloween ('18) - (BLU RAY) I learned not to keep a room full of full torso mannequins in your house as it just gives any killer plenty of places to hide. A fantastic revitalization of a franchise 8/10

Oct 12th
29)Patrick Still Lives - (BLU RAY) ? 5/10
30)Elvira's Haunted Hills - (BLU RAY) I learned not to stay in any dwelling in which the owner tells you that you look like their deceased spouse who died under mysterious circumstances. 6/10
31)Host - (BLU RAY) I learned not to disrespect the spirits. I read people describe this film as the scariest film ever made and a good example not to believe everything you read. Paranormal Activity is far superior, but still, enjoyable to a lesser degree. 4/10

Oct 13th
32)Final Destination 3 - (BLU RAY) I learned not to bring liquids of any kind into a tanning booth. 5/10

Oct 14th
33)The Barn - (BLU RAY) I learned to smash all pumpkins, I guess? I enjoyed the mythology and backstory of each of the 3 demons. I appreciate it as an amateur film that was made with passion and love for horror. 7/10

Oct 15th
34)Halloween Kills - (theater) I learned to never purchase a house that has a tragic murder story - YOU WILL NEVER BE SAFE! I understand the fan divide, but I appreciate the new direction and the approach of taking the story away from Laurie for a moment to focus on the townspeoples' history for the evil in their town. 7/10
35)Pet Sematary 2 - (BLU RAY) I learned not to wear a scarf while driving a motorbike. Nothing interesting here and a pale comparison to the first film. 4/10
36)Nightmare Beach - (BLU RAY) ? I liked how the killer's outfit looks exactly like Wolverine's costume in the first X-Men film. And I call BS on an elderly priest being able to manhandle a college football athlete. 6/10

Oct 16th
37)Midsommar (Director's Cut) - (4K BLU RAY) I learned not to piss on any ancestral tree. The director's cut adds even more depth to this masterpiece. 10/10
38)Near Dark - (BLU RAY) I learned a simple blood transfusion is all it takes to reverse vampirism. Love Bill Paxton being nuts the entire movie and some overall good effects. Highly enjoyable for first time view. 7/10

Oct 17th
39)House of Wax ('05) - (BLU RAY) I learned that although your boyfriend and friends may hate you for it, it's a good idea to bring your juvenile brother on road trips. Not a good slasher, but imo, the climax with the melting museum is just thrilling enough to make it stand out. 6/10
40)All Hallow's Even - (BLU RAY) I learned to definitely not watch any random VCR tape found in a child's trick or treat bag, especially with the children. Watched primarily for Art the clown as I loved Terrifyer a few years back. An appetizer to Terrifyer if you will, but still enjoyable for an amateur film. 6/10
41)American Psycho - (4K BLU RAY) I learned to back out of any room immediately that has newspaper on the floor but the owner's aren't painting or own any pets. A masterpiece, and my favorite horror film in last 20 years. Infinitely quotable. 10/10

Oct 18th
42)Hatchet - (BLU RAY) I learned to ask your tour guide for their credentials before putting down money for a haunted tour. Perfect homage to 80's slashers. 8/10
43)The Beach House - (BLU RAY) I learned that life is nothing more than a giant primordial soup. Picked this as I read good reviews with some saying it's one of Shudder's better originals, and it wasn't disappointing but nothing spectacular. 6/10

Oct 19th
44)Hatchet II - (BLU RAY) I learned you can't kill a ghost! You can tell the people involved are having fun with their creation with the director having a continued cameo and reference to his second film. The Vernon character was fun with his Tony Todd impression and the "biscuits and gravy" song which I bet he doubted would make it into the film. 8/10

Oct 20th
45)Freaky - (BLU RAY) I learned to pick your damned children up on time as they will have a 0% risk of being murdered if you do so. Fun take on the body swap comedy genre but with horror twists. Fun for a watch, but nothing more than that. 5/10

Oct 21st
46)Hatchet III - (BLU RAY) If you're planning on taking down an unkillable tank of a monster, be sure to pack their ancestors' ashes amongst your many guns and rockets. 6/10

Oct 22nd
47)The Strangers - (BLU RAY) I learned that if any person terrorizing you takes off their mask, it is a sure sign they're now going to kill you. Don't think home invasion films get better than this, very tense throughout. 8/10
48)Queens of Evil - (BLU RAY) I learned not to trust any woman who describes taxidermy as "a sensation of suspending life, of suspending time and beauty, forever". A surreal dream-like film that contrasts aristocracy versus the new trend of free love. Didn't hold my attention for every second, but easily is intriguing and thought provoking necessitating a re-watch. 7/10

Oct 23rd
49)Hatchet IV: Victor Crowley - (BLU RAY) ? 5/10
50)Lake Mungo - (BLU RAY) I learned to not let your 16 year old daughter see a psychic. Great case study of the horrors of grief and acceptance of loss. 7/10
51)Baby Blood - (BLU RAY) I learned not to get involved with a pregnant woman who is talking to herself. 6/10

Oct 24th
52)Bird with the Crystal Plumage - (BLU RAY) I learned that art is so powerful, it can manifest latent trauma of a person as psychosis. Classic Argento. 8/10
53)Willy's Wonderland - (BLU RAY) I learned the importance of taking small, routine breaks with refreshments, during any task. I was sold at murderous animatronic mascots and Nicolas Cage. 8/10
54)Dead and Buried - (4K BLU RAY) ? 9/10
55)The Ritual - (Streaming) I learned that any carcass still bleeding indicates a fresh kill, which means you should leave the area immediately. Blair Witch is better, but fills the "woods are creepy" genre well. 7/10

Oct 25th
56)Cell - (DVD) ? 6/10
57)Final Destination 4 - (3D BLU RAY) I learned not to go through a car wash with a malfunctioning sunroof. The weakest in the series. 4/10
58)Great White - (BLU RAY) I learned in high stress situations, it's best to keep your hands to yourself and not touch another man's wife. Similar to The Shallows as it has a claustrophobia feel with a majority of the film taking place in life raft. Ok survival horror/shark film. 5/10
59)Tintorera - (BLU RAY) ? Barely featured any shark attack and mostly focusing on two brothers competing for women, had a very hard time justifying this as a horror movie. 2/10

Oct 26th
60)Cat O' Nine Tails - (BLU RAY) ? 8/10
61)The Fog ('80) - (BLU RAY) I learned that glowing fog is the bad fog. 9/10
62)Old - (BLU RAY) I learned to teach your children about sex at an early age. 7/10
63)Shark Night - (3D BLU RAY) I learned that while transporting your mangled friend in a boat through shark infested waters, make sure they're not bleeding over a drain in a boat. Looks great in 3D, but the story is absurd and ScyFy channel material. 4/10
64)Shark Attack - (BLU RAY) ? Again, barely a horror movie. More of a political, corporate espionage film with occasional shark attacks. 2/10

Oct 27th
65)The Fog ('05) - (DVD) I learned that vindictive fog ghosts follow the safety protocols as tornados - stay away from glass and windows. Far from the "worst horror remake ever" 4/10
66)Candyman ('92) - (BLU RAY) ? 9/10
67)Candyman 2: Farewell to the Flesh- (BLU RAY) I learned the importance of exploring your family lineage. 6/10
68)Shark Attack 2 - (BLU RAY) ? Tries so hard to copy Jaws to almost direct quotes with small changes, zoom in shot on official's head as an attack occurs on the beach etc Better than 1, because you know, at least it focuses on shark attacks. 4/10

Oct 28th
69)The Burning - (BLU RAY) ? Great 80's slasher 8/10
70)Friday the 13th 7: New Blood - (BLU RAY) ? 6/10
71)What We Do in the Shadows - (BLU RAY) ? 8/10
72)Final Destination 5 - (3D BLU RAY) I learned to request not to be unattended during any lasik or eye surgery. 6/10
73)Trick - (BLU RAY) I learned that nobody needs a reason to be evil. 6/10
74)The Uninvited - (BLU RAY) ? Good gosh this film was hilarious for 2 reasons - 1)George Kennedy playing the "tough" gangster, and 2)the cat/creature effects! 6/10

Oct 29th
75)Deep Red- (BLU RAY) ? My favorite Argento aside from Suspiria 9/10

Oct 30th
76)Candyman 3: Day of the Dead - (DVD) ? 3/10
77)Tenebrae - (BLU RAY) ? 9/10

Oct 31st
78)The Thing ('82)- (4K BLU RAY) ? 10/10
79)Haunted Mansion - (BLU RAY) ? 6/10
80)The Conjuring - (Streaming) ? 9/10
81)The Exorcist - (BLU RAY) ? 10/10
