The Most Offbeat Films Ever Made

Mass Marathon of the Damned XII Presents

The Ultimate Guide to Strange Cinema

***Marathon is optional. Only one theme required to complete.***

It isn’t every film that features man-eating zombie sushi.
But for those searching for just that and more strange things in their viewing queue, this film guide is for you.
Organized by genre, including comedy, horror, action, drama, fantasy, and sci-fi, this title offers 300 reviews of
genre films from all over the world, 160+ photos, and exclusive interviews and quotes from the people behind some
of the most offbeat films ever made. Alongside this curated list of viewing recommendations, longtime fans and new comers to
strange cinema gain bits of fun and informative trivia. For example, David Caruso’s film debut was Without Warning (1980),
a carefree trip into the woods thwarted by killer flying alien discs. Lurking in these so-bad-they’re-good-films,
you’ll find other familiar actors like David Carradine, James Brolin,Martin Landau,
and Ryan Gosling in films like Death Race 2,000 (1975), The Car (1977), The Being (1983), and Lost River (2014).
The zombie sushi, by the way, is from Dead Sushi (2012).

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



Goals:
Complete the Subset Nope
Observe Theme Nights Done
100+ Views Done
20+ commentaries/MST3k 12/20
As always, have fun Absolutely!

* = first-time views

September 30:
1. Road Games (1981) I had forgotten about this one. A tense and taut thriller.
2. Dressed to Kill (1980) Nice to revisit this one. The Hitchcock influence seems greater each viewing.
3. Deerskin (2019)* A quirky little film about a man's attachment to his jacket. Really.
October 1:
4. Slither(2006) Breezy and cheezy and great fun, if you don't think too much.
5. Climax (2018)* Spiked drinks at a wild party lead to disaster. All style, but that's not always a bad thing.
6. The Lodge (2019)* Eerie as all get out, but in the end is redeemed only by Riley Keogh's performance.
7. The Nightcomers (1972)* Disappointing prequel of sorts to Turn of the Screw; despite the presence of Brando.
October 2:
8. The Sightseers (2012)* "I don't need a muse. I'm not a bloody writer, am I?" "No, you're not. You're a serial killer."
9. Valentine (2001)* Be nice to your classmates in grade school. It might save your life someday.
10. Silent Madness (1984)* A very enjoyable slasher, wearing its formula on its sleeve in a great way.. And a reminder to always keep good patient records in your mental institution.
11. Halloween (1978) This one never gets old. I'm hoping to get through a rewatch of the series before the release of Halloween Kills.
12. Halloween II (1981) A bit underrated; picks up right after the first and doesn't miss a step.
October 3:
13. Run (2020)* Powerful performances, but a bit of a weak script. Worth checking out, though.
14. The Severed Arm (1973)* Really enjoyed this low budget gem.
15. The Hole (2001)* A kind of Rashomon tale after a school tragedy...or was it? More depth than I'd thought with this one.
16. P2 (2007)* On the TSZDT list, but I can't understand why. Disappointing tale of a stalker in a parking garage, with lots of blood.
17. Hell's Ground (2007)* Certainly the only "Pakistani kids meet torturers on the way to a demonstration" film you'll see this year.
October 4:
18. The Haunted Castle (1921)* A classic I hadn't seen! I forget how skills and ahead of his time Murnau was.
19. The Spiral Staircase (1946) Great to revisit this one. Powerful use of light and shadow, and a great script.
20. The Bay of Blood (1971) Also a great revisit. The attacks are terrifically over the top, and after a while suspension of disbelief gets you through.
21. Tales from the Crypt: Bordello of Blood (1996)* Another loser from the dregs of the TSZDT list. They can't all be winners, but do they need to be this uninspired?
October 5:
22. Witchfinder General (1968)
23. The Brotherhood of Satan (1971)*
24. The Torture Chamber of Dr Sadism (1967)*
October 6:
25. Cutting Class (1989)*
26. Hair High (2004)* Bill Plympton high-school horror that starts out strong and overstays its welcome a bit. Still worth checking out if you're a fan.
27. I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957) - MST3k Always a great revisit.
28. Careful (1992)* Is this horror? Hard to tell. It is certainly weird though.
October 7:
29. Carrie (1976) Every year there's a "you mean this has never been a subset before?!?" and this is it. "Mama, please hold me." a plaintive plea at the end I'd never quite registered before.
30. Don't Deliver Us From Evil (1971)* Apparently based on the same case that inspired Peter Jackson's Heavenly Creatures. Two Satan-worshiping girls cause all kinds of trouble, including murder. Worth a look, but I liked the Jackson film better.
31. The Fan (1981)* Lauren Bacall is a star with a stalker, in this creepy and suspenseful thriller. Includes a a great cast and Razzie-nominated show tunes by Hamlisch and Rice; who could ask for anything more?
October 8:
32. Christmas Evil (1980)* A deranged toy factory worker dressed as Santa goes on a killing spree. John Waters' favorite Christmas movie, which totally makes sense.
33. Slumber Party Massacre II (1987)* Eh. A big too formulaic and far too much 'is this a dream?" to have much weight.
34. Warlock (1989)* Have somehow missed this one over the years. Very very much of its 80's time, but an engaging story. Always nice to see Richard E. Grant.
35. Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982) I have underrated this one in the past; I certainly would have liked to see what Carpenter could have done with the anthology idea after this strong start.
October 9:
36. The Devil's Doorway (2018)* Mysterious happenings in a 1960's Irish home for "fallen women" lead priests to investigate. I'm not usually into found-footage movies, but this one was well done and made efficient use of a short run time.
37. Grave Robbers (1989)* It seemed like everything in this one was borrowed from another movie, but I didn't care. As has been pointed out, lots of screaming, but still enjoyable.
38. Horror Rises From the Tomb (1973)* Yes it does, with gore, dramatic music, and a quest for revenge. Great fun if you're in the mood for it.
39. The Burrowers (2008)* A Western-horror about settlers who blame violence on the Native Americans, when there's a more insidious danger underground. Overcomes its tiny budget most of the time, for a genuinely frightening ride.
40. False Positive (2021)* Although I understood the film's commentary about the danger of male doctors not believing women, this tale grew a bit tiring, despite a cast of good actors.
October 10:
41. Horrors of Malformed Men (1969)* This has been on my need-to-to-watch list forever, even after winning the disc as a Challenge prize. Great film - creepy, spooky, well done piece which at times seems to be about too many things, but works in the end.
42. Dumplings (2004)* Full length version of a tale from Three...Extremes, about a woman who wants to stay young, and the chef with just the right food to make it happen. Don't watch while you're eating.
43. Battle Royale (2000) I'd seen this before, and watching it dubbed on Tubi make it even less engaging to me than before. I respect it; just wish I liked it more.
44. Halloween (1978) with director/actor commentary*
45. Halloween II (1981) with director/actor commentary*
October 11:
46. The Mortuary Collection (2019)* Generally engaging anthology collection, but the segments went on a bit too long.
47. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)
48. Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989)
October 12:
49. Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II (1987)
50. Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982) with director commentary*
51. Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995)* When the most interesting thing about the movie is the credit introducing "Paul Stephen Rudd." I was certain I'd seen this one before, but remember nothing about it.
October 13:
52. Curse of the Demon (1957) A great yarn I'd seen years ago for the Challenge.
53. Halloween H20 (1998) Making my way toward Halloween Kills...good cast in this one, and keeps the story going.
54. In Search of Darkness (2019) (beginning)*
October 14:
55-56. In Search of Darkness (2019) (continued)*
57. Halloween: Resurrection (2002)* "This isn't fun any more, guys!" (You said it, random girl.) RIP Starbuck.
58. Halloween (2018) Now that's more like it. Bring on the next one!
October 15:
59. Halloween Kills (2021)* I'm a sucker; I'm in. Needed more Laurie, but that's always the case.
60. The Evil Dead (1981) Happy 40th! Still looks great.
61. The Wailing (2016)* Powerful and suspenseful mystery in a small town. This watch brings me to 95% completion of They Shoot Zombies... Top 1000.
62. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) Still effective after all these years, and seems more and more relevant. One of the best..
October 16:
63. The Fog (1980) Great to revisit after hearing discussion on the Blank Check podcast.
64. Tower of Evil (1972)*
65. Monster A-Go-Go (1965) MST3k
66. Gorgo (1961) MST3k
67. Gothic (1987)
October 17:
68. Fade to Black (1980) I know I'd seen this one before but didn't remember much of it - a powerful, creepy character study, with, of course, lots of movie references.
69. The Wolf of Snow Hollow (2020)* So happy for the recommendations of this one. Well done and well-cast; Robert Forster's final role was a treat.
70. The Neon Demon (2016)* Disappointing reflection on beauty and stardom. Would it have helped if not at such a glacial pace? Possibly.
71. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) Watching the 50's version and then this is a study on how remakes can be equally great but reflect differently on their time.
72. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) with director commentary* A low-key but highly recommended commentary by Philip Kaufman.
73. The Platform (2019)* Me, at the beginning: I wonder if this really counts as a horror movie. Me, 30 minutes in: Oh my goodness, yes.
October 18:
74. Mulberry St. (2006)* Low-budget shocker dealing with an infestation of the undead in a NYC neighborhood.
75. Planet Terror (2007) I just relax end enjoy the over-the-top nature of this one. Always good fun.
76. City of the Walking Dead (1980)* Nonstop gore Umberto Lenzi zombie flick, with the added angle of government and military strategies to conquer them. Not completely sucessful.
October 19:
77. The Skeleton Key (2005)* Underrated spooky mystery with a great cast. Marvelous use of New Orleans.
October 20:
78. Vampyr (1932)
79. Daughters of Darkness (1971)*
October 21:
80. Saw III(2006)*
81. The Collector (2009)*
October 22:

October 23:
84. Freaky (2020)*
85. Scream (1996)
86. Scream 2 (1997)
87. Scream 3 (2000)
October 24:
88. Lunacy (2005)* The title says it all.
89. Sleep Tight (2011)* A genuinely creepy Spanish thriller, all the more because it seems entirely possible.
October 25:
90. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966) Wildcard #1 It wouldn't be Halloween without it.
91. Mirrors (2008)* Alexandre Aja film about deadly mirrors that didn't quiet work for me despite a good cast and some scary scenes.
92. Possessor (2020)* Graphic and daring; I liked this one a lot and will probably revisit in years to come.
October 26:
93. Scream 4 (2011)
94. Body Bags (1993)
95. Ring of Terror (1962) MST3k Rated "FUCK YOU/10" by a wise poster on Letterbox. Joel and the Bots made it passable.
October 27:
96. The Untold Story (1993)*
97. Scream 4 (2011) with director/cast commentary*
98. Prince of Darkness (1987) with director/cast commentary*

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

My Personal October Horror Movie Challenge History: 2007 - 100; 2008 - 50; 2009 - 71; 2010 - 78; 2011 - 52; 2012 - 52; 2013 - 74; 2014 - 67; 2015 - 100; 2016 - 31; 2017 - 53; 2018 - 54; 2019 - 43; 2020 - 95

2021 Goal - To be determined...

September 30
1. Malignant (2021) ☼ [Theater] - An uneven irde. I found the first part to be rather dull before an incredible action-packed stretch redeemed it.
2. Cloverfield (2008) [BD] - Just as thrilling as the first time I remember seeing it.

October 1
3. 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) ☼ [BD] - Went in to this one blind, only to find it just loosely connected to the earlier film I had just completed. Solid film, regardless
4. The Hunt (2020) [BD] - Non-stop aciton from beginning to end. Gilpin is fantastic in her role.

October 2
5. The Invisible Man (2020) [BD] - Really impressed by the performance of Moss.
6. Being Human - Lia / Adam's Family (2011) ☼ [BD] - First television show of the challenge. This is the BBC version whereas I'd previoulsy seen the first season of the US show..
7. The Walking Dead - Seed / Sick (2012) ☼ [BD] - I'm late to TWD party, but I enjoy the show. Never short on gruesome kills
8. Angel Heart (1987) ☼ [BD] - Labeled as horror, but might be a stretch. Interestiing film that I had overlooked until coming across it recently.

October 3
9. Bitten
- Bad Blood / Scare Tactics (2015) ☼ [DVD] - Another television show I was not familiar with prior to blind buying. Not my preference, but starting with season 2 since it's the one I own..
10. Bitten - Hell's Teeth / Dead Meat (2015) ☼ [DVD] - I realized partway through these episodes that I was going to have take a challenge break. An afternoon of following baseball and football are distracting me.
11. The Walking Dead - Walk With Me / Killer Within (2012) ☼ [BD] - Reminded in the latter episode that you can't get too attached to any characters in this show.

October 4
12. Being Human
- Type 4 / The Pack (2011) ☼ [BD] - The zombie in the first of these made for an enjoyable episode.
13. The Walking Dead - Say the Word / Hounded (2012) ☼ [BD] - This show has a tremendous body count. I wonder if someone has ever added it up.
14. The Walking Dead -When the Dead Come Knocking / Made to Suffer ☼ [BD] - I'm only on the 3rd season of TWD. Knowing how many seasons have been produced, I'm amazed at the ability to continue with quality storylines. At least, I assume they are quality.

October 5
15. The Clovehitch Killer (2018) ☼ [DVD] - Some friends know that I am fascinated by serial killers. I think it concerns them.
16. Being Human - The Longest Day / Daddy Ghoul (2011) ☼ [BD] - These two episodes really lacked in the horror elements. Hopeful the season will end on a stronger note.

October 6
17. The Conjuring 2 (2016) ☼ [BD] - I usually prefer my sequels to be viewed in order, but I caught the 3rd film in a theater earlier in the year. This particular film was worth the watch.
18. Being Human - Though the Heavens Fall / The Wolf-Shaped Bullet (2011) ☼ [BD] - Undecided yet whether I like this BBC adaptation better.
19. Bitten - Rabbit Hole / Nine Circles (2015) ☼ [DVD] - Still waiting for this show to rise above the level of just being ok.

October 7
20. Kill List
(2011) ☼ [BD] - A disappointing movie. On one hand, I've certainly seen much worse. But the reviews I had seen for this one had me looking forward to it.
21. The Resident (2011) ☼ [BD] - The kind of plot that's been done so many times before, but this thriller was still effective.
22. Pool Party Massacre (2017) ☼ [Streaming-VUDU] - Cheesy throwback with a twist at the end. Another twist that doesn't need a spoiler: The killer also wrote and directed the movie.
23. Bitten - Bad Dreams / Dark Arts (2015) ☼ [DVD] - Losing interest in the series, but thankfully just a couple more episodes to go.

October 8
24. The Walking Dead - The Suicide King / Home (2012) ☼ [BD] - Fantastic sequence to end the second of these two episodes. Intense moments with lots of gunfire.
25. The Midnight Meat Train (2008) ☼ [Streaming-VUDU] - Not sure how I overlooked this film that's been out for a bit. Pleasantly surprised.
26. Bitten - Scavenger's Daughter / Fine Temporum (2015) ☼ [DVD] - A redeeming moment or two, but too little too late to consider a rewatch at any point.
27. The Eyes of My Mother (2016) ☼ [Streaming-VUDU] - I found the film a little hard to watch. Not because of the content, but because it was black & white and so dark at times.

October 9
28. The Walking Dead
- I Ain't No Judas / Clear (2012) ☼ [BD] - Showed my son an episode of the show, he was hooked quickly. Showed my wife, she was not a fan of the blood and gore.
29. Hollow (2011) ☼ [BD] - If films were labeled as "found footage" types, I would probably avoid them in general. I found this one more watchable than many others.
30. Kiss of the Damned (2012) ☼ [BD] - A vampire story that doesn't take long to get going. There wasn't much "set-up" before the plot thickens.
31. The Walking Dead - Arrow on the Doorpost / Prey (2012) ☼ [BD] - The tension ramps up as the season conclusion draws near.
32. The Walking Dead - This Sorrowful Life / Welcome to the Tombs (2012) ☼ [BD] - A bloody finale with a high body count. I wouldn't expect anything less.

October 10
33. Open Grave
(2013) [BD] - The film had an interesting premise, though not altogether original. The pace seemed to slow down as it went on.
34. Bates Motel - A Danger to Himself and Others / Goodnight, Mother (2016) ☼ [DVD] - I skipped to season 4 because I own it. When I last watched the show, Norma was a little off. Now it's Norman who has since goine a little mad. Very entertaining start.

October 11
35. Bates Motel - Til Death Do You Part / Lights of Winter (2016) ☼ [DVD] - The intensity continues to build rapidly so far this season.

October 12
36. Bates Motel - Refraction / The Vault (2016) ☼ [DVD] - Norman's therapy seems to be coming along quite well.

October 13
37. Bates Motel - There's No Place Like Home / Unfaithful (2016) ☼ [DVD] - The second episode featured a most uncomfortable family dinner.
38. Bates Motel - Forever / Norman (2016) ☼ [DVD] - This season turned out to be an incredible ride.

October 14
39. Shelly Duvall's Tall Tales & Legends - The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1985) ☼ [DVD] - Using a wild card due to length of under an hour. Strange and dated account of the Washington Irving novel.

October 15
40. Fortitude - Episodes 1 & 2 (2017) ☼ [BD] - A polar bear autopsy was a challenge first.
41. Halloween Kills (2021) ☼ [Theater] - I was entertained because I love this series and horror films in general. There sure were some silly parts, however..

October 16
42. Fortitude - Episodes 3 & 4 (2017) ☼ [BD] - I have found that I get agitated when television shows don't put titles on their episodes.

October 17
43. The Shining (1980) [BD] - I had seen this classic before and thought it was overrated. I enjoyed much more upon a repeat viewing. .
44. Poker Night (2014) ☼ [DVD] - I was underwhelmed but it was good enough to give another chance. At least I think so, or hope so.
45. Salem's Lot (1979) ☼ [BD] - Treating as the multi-part television series it's listed as. First half seemed to start slowly. . .

October 18
46. Salem's Lot (1979) ☼ [BD] - The vioience, action, intensity all made for a stronger finish.
47. Under the Skin (2014) ☼ [BD] - Many challenge films allow you to turn your mind off. I was forced to engage more while trying to figure out what was happening. Not sure I have it all figured out yet.
48. Fortitude - Episodes 5 & 6 (2017) ☼ [BD] - For the most part this show has lacked action. It attempted to make up for it slightly in the last episode.
49. Cat's Eye (1985) [BD] - Continuing with a run of Stephen King hits. I love how the look and soundtrack scream 1980s and take me back to childhood..

October 19
50. Trick or Treat (2019) ☼ [BD] - Despite a title and case cover which shouts horror, it doesn't really go in that direction. Though it was kinda horrific to sit through it.
51. Fortitude - Episodes 7 & 8 (2017) ☼ [BD] - I have found that shows with shorter seasons follow a similar arc, slowing down mid-run before finishing strong. This seems to be following the formula.
52. Fortitude - Episodes 9 & 10 (2017) ☼ [BD] - Underwhelmed for the most part. I read a review that said the first season was stronger. Makes me wonder if I should check it out. I could be left with nightmares from a male performing surgery on himself.

October 20
53. Doctor Sleep (2019) ☼ [BD] - An excellent companion to the orignal with so many call backs which are spot on (characters, scenery, etc)
54. Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970) ☼ [DVD] - Christopher Lee is excellent in the title role, as to be expected.

October 21
55. Stephen King's It (1990) [BD] - Such a wonderful start to this television mini-series adaptation.
56. Stephen King's It, part 2 (1990) [BD] - I've never enjoyed the 2nd half as much. I think it's simply based on how fantastic the depiction of the group's childhood was at the beginning.

October 22
57. Unsane (2018) ☼ [DVD] - Solid mystery with an interesting premise.

October 23
58. John Dies at the End (2012) ☼ [BD] -A film that combines elements of horror, comedy, and sci-fi.
59. Leatherface (2017) ☼ [BD] - An origin film for the title character. As violent and bloody as one would expect..
60. Poltergeist (1982) [BD] - Nealry 40 years since release, this remains one of the most effective horror films ever.

October 24
61. The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) ☼ [DVD] - The sight of the guillotine brought upon a chilling conclusion.
62. The Ruins (2008) ☼ [BD] - Will be among my favorite first time watches in 2021. Went in completely blind to the plot and was surprised.
63. The Walking Dead - 30 Days Without an Accident / Infected (2013) ☼ [BD] - A new season reveals a nasty bug creating problems from within.

October 25
64. Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988) ☼ [BD] - I neglected to see this for years because I thought it would be too silly to enjoy. Turns out the silliness is just right. Easy to see why this is considered a cult classic.
65 Little Monsters (2019) ☼ [BD] - Another gem discovered from a Dollar Tree purchase last month. Good mix of comedy and horror.
66 Stage Fright (2014) ☼ [BD] - Not sure if I've ever checked off the "horror/musical/comedy" box before until now.
67. The Walking Dead - Isolation / Indifference (2013) ☼ [BD] - Quarantines, facial coverings and the like. Who knew this would have predicted the future?.
68. The Walking Dead - Internment / Live Bait (2013) ☼ [BD] - Have my son hooked on the series now, not wanting me to watch episodes without him.

October 26
69. Survival of the Dead (2009) ☼ [BD] - Went straight from a TWD marathon to this film. In the previews was an interview with the creator of that show.
70. You Might Be the Killer (2018) [DVD] - I feel like I had seen this before, but not all of it was memorable. Guess that makes the film slightly forgettable.
71. The Walking Dead - Dead Weight / Too Far Gone (2013) ☼ [BD] - Losing a well-loved character made this mid season episode tough to swallow.

October 27
72. Warm Bodies (2013) ☼ [BD] - I find myself doing zombie comparisons. The undead aren't as vicious here as TWD.
73. The Walking Dead - After / Inmates (2013) ☼ [BD] - A transition for this particular season. The main cast of characters has split up, leaving smaller groups having their own arcs.

October 28
74. The Walking Dead - Claimed / Still (2013) ☼ [BD] - The middle episodes haven't been strong, but I'm fairly confident they'll build back up as the season winds down.

October 29
75. The Legend of Beaver Dam (2010) ☼ [DVD] - *Wild Card* - The film Stage Fright contained a horror short on DVD. Turned out to be a solid bonus. At only 12 minutes, it sure packed in quite a bit of blood and gore.


Summary (may not be updated until end of month) - 65/75 entries were first time views; BDs: 53; DVDs: 18; Streaming: 2; Theatrical: 2

This Year's List:
Spoiler:
9/30/21

1) Silent Madness (1984) - A criminally insane patient is accidentally released from an asylum and heads to college to kill a few sorority girls - in 3D! I had seen this one before, but not in 3D.
2) Friday the 13th (1980) - Young people fixing up an old, closed down summer camp get murdered. Silent Madness "borrowed" a bit from this one, so it seemed like a good double feature.
3) Night of the Animated Dead (2021) - Another animated Night of the Living Dead remake. I expected to hate this, but I didn't.

10/1/21

4) Malignant (2021) - A young woman is pursued by a supernatural killer with whom she shares a psychic bond. This is another one I expected to hate, but ended up liking.
5) Chthulhu Mansion (La mansión de los Cthulhu) (1992) - After killing a drug dealer on a dark ride and stealing his bag of coke, five goofball hoods kidnap carnival magician Chandu, his daughter, and his mute manservant, and go hide out in Chandu's sanctum sanctorum - Chthulhu Mansion - where the mansion's supernatural residents don't take kindly to strangers. A moderately fun, extra-cheesy, low-budget spook show.
6) Beyond the Door III (1989) - A group of American students are trapped by an evil force on board a runaway train traveling through Eastern Europe. I've seen worse.

10/2/21

7) Hidden 3D (Hidden) (2011) - After his mad scientist mother passes away, a Canadian dude inherits the old monastery that housed her laboratory. So, of course, he and a few friends go there to spend the night, then get attacked and killed by her old experiments. The copy I watched was 2D (even though it had the Hidden 3D title). I doubt 3D would've helped it much.
8) Psychosis (2010) - Soon after a writer (Charisma Carpenter) and her husband move into a big house in the country outside of London, she starts hallucinating and having violent visions, leading her to wonder whether the house is haunted or if she is just losing her mind. A little slow moving, but not too bad.
9) Dark Tower (1989) - A new high-rise building in Barcelona is haunted by a deadly spirit.
10) Director's Cut (2016) [tubi] - Penn Jillette plays an obsessed fan who kidnaps the lead actress of a crowd-funded movie about a serial killer who is re-creating infamous past murders so he can reshoot and re-edit the film more to his liking. We watch his re-edited version along with his "director's commentary." It's all very "meta." And somewhat amusing.
11) Parasomnia (2008) - A loser art student kidnaps a young woman suffering from "Sleeping Beauty Syndrome" from a hospital, then she becomes possessed by a serial killer who visits her in her dreams and makes her sleepwalk and kill people. I needed a nap after watching this one.
12) Isolation (2011) - A woman wakes up in a hospital bed in an isolation unit with no memories of how she got there. Is she a patient or a prisoner? IMDb doesn't list this one as "Horror," but it was included in an 8-film horror set I bought at Dollar Tree, and Letterboxd calls it "Horror," so I'm counting it.

10/3/21

13) Ghosthouse (1988) - A ham radio operator hears a strange broadcast one night. The next day, he and his girlfriend track the signal to an empty old house in the country where they meet a group of young people camping next to the house. Eventually they go into the house, where they encounter a ghost girl and her creepy clown doll, and people start getting killed.
14) The Seventh Victim (1943) - A young woman goes to New York City to search for her missing sister who she discovers is mixed up with a group of devil worshipers.
15) Maneater (2009) - People in a small town believe a bear is responsible for the recent brutal attacks in the nearby woods, but the local sheriff begins to suspect it's a wendigo.
16) Devil Seed (2012) - After a drunken visit to a psychic, a college girl becomes possessed and impregnated by something evil.
17) Beast Beneath (2011) - After a couple of crooks forge a dying old man's signature on a will so they can steal his land, the old man's blind daughter curses the men. Then many years later, after the land has become Griffith Park, the blind woman's granddaughter and her boyfriend find a treasure map. A few people go to the park to look for the treasure, but a monster and the old man's ghost are guarding it.
18) Die (2010) - Six suicidal Canadians wake up in cells in a dimly lit room, prisoners of a man who leaves their fate (whether they live or die) to the roll of a single die (thus the title).

10/4/21

19) House of Evil (Macabre Serenade, Dance of Death) (1968) [OtherWorlds TV] - A cantankerous codger (Boris Karloff) invites his relatives to his secluded castle, ostensibly to decide who to include in his will. Soon after they reach the castle, they're introduced to a toymaker and his deadly toys, then some other stuff happens, and finally, after way too long, the toys and automatons get around to killing someone.
20) The Fall of the House of Usher (La Chute de la Maison Usher) (1928) [YouTube] - In this loose adaptation of the Poe story, Roderick is living with his dying wife, Madeline, in a huge, forbidding miniature.
21) Die Marquise von Sade (Doriana Grey) (1976) - Jess Franco's boring pornographic take on The Picture Of Dorian Gray: Doriana Grey has an insatiable desire for sex. Even though she feels no pleasure from it, she takes her partners' vitality from them - keeping her young. Meanwhile, her psychically attuned twin, locked away in an asylum, feels everything.
22) Taste of Phobia (A Taste of Phobia) (2017) [Kino Cult] - Anthology film with 14 stories about phobias: "Chaetophobia (Fear of Hair)" - A woman is held captive by a bald guy who ties her down and shaves, and then waxes, her leg; "Pharmacophobia (Fear of Medication)" - A pharmacist who doesn't like to take medicine, is at home, sick, and wakes up to see that his wife or girlfriend left him some cough syrup to take; "Parthenophobia (Fear of Vergins)" [sic] - A guy making a porn flick meets his co-star, who is a virgin, and an obsessed fan; "Coprophobia (Fear of Feces)" - A guy who is scared to take a shit is attacked by a tiny shitty teddy bear that climbs out of his toilet; "Mysophobia (Fear of Germs)" - A skinny bald guy spends a night in a motel room; "Mazeophobia (Fear of Mazes)" - A foreign guy, lost somewhere in America, drives in circles for a while, stops to ask for directions, then gets abducted by rednecks; "Astrophobia (Fear of Stars)" - A guy meets a YouTuber with an unusual name, which leads him to become obsessed with a different YouTuber (not very good, yet easily the best story in the film); "Mageirocophobia (Fear of Cooking)" - A woman preparing a meal starts to see the vegetables as body parts, then the fish she was about to cook talks to her and shames her for not being vegan; "Gerascophobia (Fear of Ageing)" - A male model approaching thirty wants a new body; "Politicophobia (Fear of Politics)" - A few people repeatedly say "vote" and some other gibberish (this was the nadir for this shitfest of a film); "Somniphobia (Fear of Sleep)" - A sleep-deprived guy, working on some project, tries various methods to stay awake; "Oneirophobia (Fear of Dreams)" - A young woman has a dream, then sleepwalks, grabs a knife, and stabs her boyfriend (I just watched a whole movie like that); "Nyctophobia (Fear of Dark)" - A young woman sees someone whenever the lights go out; "Hemophobia (Fear of Blood)" - A woman dies while watching some crap on TV. There are way too many commercials on this channel, but on a positive note: The stories in the movie were super-short, so if you really hate the crappy story you're watching, it won't be long until there's a commercial break, or you move on to a different crappy story to hate.
23) The Paperboy (1994) [OtherWorlds TV] - A crazy Canadian kid, obsessed with his elderly neighbor's daughter and granddaughter who moved away, kills the old lady so they will come back to town and he can have a "perfect family." After they come back, he spies on her and the little girl while he tries to ingratiate himself with them by helping out around the house. When things don't work out as he had hoped, and she starts dating William Katt, more people die.
24) A Place in Hell (2018) - Six college kids go to a Halloween attraction in the dead of winter to shoot a horror film for their film class. Meanwhile, an ex-cop is hunting for a serial killer in the same area.

10/5/21

25) Blades (1989) - A Jaws parody about a killer lawnmower chewing up people on a golf course.
26) Attack of the Herbals (2011) - After a crate washes up on the shore of a small Scottish fishing village, a local loser, desperate for money, decides to sell the "tea" inside the crate (which is actually an old Nazi super soldier drug that turns people into murderous rage zombies) to other unsuspecting locals. The WWII prologue looked so good that, at first, I thought I might be watching a trailer for a different movie. Too bad the rest of the film wasn't as good as the opening. It looks okay for a low-budget movie, but it just took too long to get to the point. It could've been worse, but it should've been better.
27) Rites of Blood (2004) - Hundreds of years ago, somewhere in Eastern Europe, a Satanic ritual is interrupted and the participants are either killed or captured. Then, after a quick nunsploitation scene, a couple of guys dig up a baby that was born in a grave after its mother was buried alive. Jump to present day Helsinki, and the movie, already slow and uninteresting, becomes worse: The baby which was dug up earlier is now a grown up goth vampire chick (I guess) who walks around Helsinki and doesn't do much for the second half of the movie. I expected it to suck, just not that hard.
28) The Devil Within Her (Sharon's Baby, I Don't Want to Be Born) (1975) - Joan Collins and Ralph Bates have a baby that is possessed by the devil - or by a chubby dwarf who works in a strip club - it wasn't very clear. Anyway, some people get killed. Then there's an exorcism.
29) Corruption (1968) - A brilliant surgeon (Peter Cushing) scars his model fiancee's face by knocking a studio light onto her during a jealous rage. He invents a medical technique to restore her skin using a pituitary gland he gets from a female corpse in the hospital morgue. Unfortunately, the effect is only temporary, and soon he resorts to killing women to get fresh pituitary glands.
30) Fear Street Part One 1994 (2021) - Five kids from a cursed town with a history of serial killers are pursued by a few unstoppable re-animated dead serial killers from the town's past.

10/6/21

31) Fear Street Part Two 1978 (2021) - The survivors from the first part meet with the survivor from an earlier incident that occurred at a summer camp and learn more of the history of their town and the curse.
32) Fear Street Part Three 1666 (2021) - Having failed to end the curse at the end of the second part, the main character's consciousness is carried back in time over three hundred years where she witnesses the actual events in the town's past that led to the curse.
33) La piel que habito (The Skin I Live In) (2011) - A brilliant plastic surgeon (Antonio Banderas) has developed synthetic skin which he has grafted onto a patient who is a prisoner in a room in his clinic.

10/7/21

34) Candyman (2021) - A young artist becomes obsessed with the Candyman legend, starts seeing things, then people associated with him start dying. I was never really a fan of the Candyman series, and then I found out that Tony Todd isn't in this one, so that was two strikes against it right away. Still, I didn't hate it.
35) Monstrous (2020) [tubi] - A young woman investigating Bigfoot sightings in the Adirondacks, along with a series of disappearances in the same area, finds they are related in an unexpected manner.
36) P (2005) [Vudu] - Decided to let random.org pick a horror movie for me on Vudu, and I got this. A young woman who was raised by her witch grandmother, desperate for money, goes to work in a bar in Bangkok. She soon discovers that the job entails more than dancing, and after getting used to the idea of being a prostitute, she decides to use the spells taught to her by her grandmother to become successful in her new profession. After she breaks every magic rule her grandmother taught her, she unleashes an evil which leaves her body and kills people whenever she dreams.
37) Beit al ashbah (House of Ghosts) (1951) - Several heirs show up at an old dark house for the reading of a will and discover that they will only inherit the money if they stay in the house for a month. Oh yeah, there's also a gorilla (well, a guy in a very bad monkey costume) loose on the estate. It took several tries for me to make it through this one.
38) Annabelle Creation (2017) - Twelve years after the death of their only daughter in an auto accident, a couple takes a nun and six orphan girls into their home. Soon after moving in, the girls start seeing apparitions, that hideous Annabelle doll unexpectedly turns up in different places, and eventually one of the girls becomes possessed.

10/8/21

39) Annabelle Comes Home (2019) - While the Warrens are out of town, their daughter Judy's babysitter's friend breaks into their artifact room, accidentally releasing the evil inside, freeing it to harass and play pranks on them and the neighbors. This wasn't a bad movie, but it felt like a kid's movie (I was surprised to see it wasn't rated PG or PG-13.
40) Benny Loves You (2019) - After he tries to throw it away, a luckless loser's childhood toy springs to life and starts killing people.
41) Death Blood 4: Revenge of the Killer Nano-Robotic Blood Virus (2019) [B-Movie TV] - A video store clerk, a comic book store clerk, a pizza guy, and an alien unite to fight against an alien bloodborne pathogen called "Death Blood," and bigfoot. A well-made, but extremely boring cheapie.
42) Dejabyu (Deja Vu) (2018) [B-Movie TV] - A young woman taking a new medication recalls an auto accident that seemingly never happened, and sees people who aren't there. This one wasn't checked on icheckmovies, but I know I had seen it before, so I'm calling it a repeat viewing.

10/9/21

43) 3 from Hell (2019) - Many years after somehow surviving the end of The Devil's Rejects, Bill Moseley, Rob Zombie's wife, and some new guy escape prison and go on a murder spree to Mexico.
44) Mark of the Devil (Hexen bis aufs Blut gequält) (1970) [OtherWorlds TV] - A young witchfinder (Udo Kier) begins to question his comrades' methods. Another rewatch, but it was coming on when I switched to that channel, so I figured I might as well watch it again.
45) Voodoo Woman (1957) - A mad scientist (Tom Conway), looking for a way to create a super creature, performs experiments in Africa with a mix of voodoo rituals and modern science.
46) Willy's Wonderland (2021) - A mysterious energy-drink-fueled silent stranger (Nic Cage) gets stranded in the middle of nowhere, and agrees to work overnight cleaning up the long-closed Willy's Wonderland entertainment center and restaurant in exchange for repairs to his car. Unfortunately for him, he's meant to be a human sacrifice offered to the demonic forces occupying the restaurant, and the various animatronic characters inside come to life and try to kill him. No surprises here - just sit back, watch it go through its paces, and enjoy the ride.
47) A Quiet Place Part II (2020) - Following a quick prologue showing the beginning of the blind alien invasion, this sequel picks up where the first film ended. The family leaves their ruined farm to go looking for a new place to live. I had long suspected, but just confirmed, that icheckmovies sometimes loses check marks. I had watched A Quiet Place back in 2018, but it wasn't checked on icheckmovies, so I thought I had forgotten to check it and added a check, but when I looked at letterboxd, it was marked as watched. So icheckmovies lost that check some time in the past couple of weeks.
48) Wrong Place, Wrong Time (2021) [Vudu] - Another random.org pick. A gang of violent hoods, on the run from the law, make a stop at a house in the middle of nowhere, only to discover that the people living there are a bigger threat than the cops. I've seen this plot used a few times before in better bad movies.

10/10/21

49) The Visitor (Stridulum) (1979) - Oddball late '70s star-studded "evil kid" movie about a group of rich businessmen seeking to get the mother of the evil kid to marry Lance Henriksen so they can have more evil kids, while John Huston tries to put a stop to it. All while an over-the-top score over-punctuates nearly every onscreen action. It's like they threw The Omen, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and The Birds into a blender and hit "puree."
50) Chi O Suu Bara (Evil of Dracula) (1974) - A teacher arrives at his new job at a secluded girls' school that is infested with vampires. Like the other Toho vampire films, I don't think they really got the rules for western vampires, and just did whatever they felt like.
51) Sleepwalker (1984) [B-Movie TV] - A Yuppie couple show up at an old English manor belonging to a couple of old friends, then they all go out to eat at a local restaurant. After a bunch of talking, they go back to the house and sit around and talk some more. Eventually everyone goes to sleep (lucky for me, I had a nap earlier and managed to stay awake), and a few nightmares provide a little distraction from the tedium. I had seen this before, but didn't recognize it until I was about five minutes into it already, and figured I might as well finish it. / Chucky: Friends 'till the End (2019) - Child's Play fan film - A girl gives her boyfriend a classic Good Guys doll, not realizing it is possessed by a killer, and the doll kills a few people. No worse than some of the newer Chucky movies. / Up All Night (2020) - A Nightmare on Elm Street fan film - A guy picks up a woman at a bar. They go to her place. Freddy pops out of her. Then Jason shows up, followed by Pinhead. A well made, but nonsensical short.
52) Eden Lake (2008) - A man and a woman go on holiday at a lake and are harassed by a group of adolescent gits. After a car accident, they capture the man and torture him, then chase the woman through the woods.

10/11/21

53) Gore Whore (1994) - Shot on video (in low light and using a crappy microphone) crap about a scientist who hires a low-rent detective to find his assistant who he says stole his formula and his lab notes. The detective finds out from a friend on the police force that the "assistant" was a hooker who died six months earlier, and her body was donated for medical research. Turns out the stolen formula is a re-animation serum which she requires, along with the blood of her victims, to stay "alive."
54) Hardgore (1976) - A young woman is committed to an asylum. Unfortunately the asylum is run by a Satanic cult that uses the patients in their freaky deaky bloody psychedelic orgies.
55) Zombie Commando (Zombie Brigade) (1988) [OtherWorlds TV] - Construction crews knock down a Viet Nam Memorial cemetery to make room for an amusement park, setting loose a bunch of undead soldiers on the nearby town. Sounds way better than it was.
56) The Mistresses of Dr. Jekyll (El secreto del Dr. Orloff) (1964) [OtherWorlds TV] - A young woman travels to her uncle's castle to spend Christmas vacation with him and his drunken wife. Turns out the uncle killed the young woman's father years before, after catching him sleeping with his wife, and revived the lifeless corpse, which he sends out to kill people.
57) Deafula (1975) - In an alternate reality where everyone is deaf, and communicates via sign language, a cop and his new partner, a comic relief detective from England, are investigating a series of strange murders. Meanwhile, the cop's buddy, Steve, a preacher's hippie son with a rare blood disorder, occasionally transforms into a vampire (who looks like Dracula in Al Adamson's Dracula vs. Frankenstein), and hypnotizes people, or just bites their necks and kills them. Eventually Dracula shows up, and the story sorta, almost makes sense. Yes, it is as gloriously eccentric as it sounds. Since I first heard about this film, by chance about a month ago, I've been wanting to watch it (A rarely seen low-budget horror film made in the '70s where everyone in the film communicates using American Sign Language? Heck yeah, sign me up!). It was available on YouTube, but it's no longer there. Good thing I downloaded it last month, rather than waiting to watch it on YouTube this month.

10/12/21

58) Cheap Thrills (2013) - Based on a Roald Dahl story. After a down on his luck mechanic loses his job, he goes to a bar where he runs into an old friend, then they meet a rich couple who will bet on anything. The bets start out small, then increase, and become more outrageous and deadly, as the night wears on.
59) Terror Tales (2016) - In this two hour long anthology film (with the longest wraparound story I've ever seen), a psycho kidnaps a guy and his wife and daughter, and submits him to three long, low-budget horror tales as they drive around in his truck: Tale One By Proxy - Lynn Lowry is a horror writer who witnesses her sickly young son shooting himself, then is arrested for his murder. She is found not guilty, but is killed by a gunman outside the court. Then some kind of freaky mystical creature takes her, and us, on a Ghost of Christmas Past type journey through her life with her son.; Tale Two Radical Video - A cop is looking for a serial killer who kills women with a sledgehammer. This one does a pretty decent job of recreating the '80s, but just kinda ends... until the after credits scene; Tale Three Epidemic - A pastor who killed his possessed wife is freed from an asylum by a nun who recruits him to help the Vatican fight against a worldwide epidemic of demonic possessions, including the pastor's daughter. Plus, we get a little backstory with Felissa Rose as a witch in Salem, Massachusetts.
60) Blood Fest (2018) - A video store clerk obsessed with horror films goes with his two friends to "Blood Fest" a horror event held at a sort of horror amusement park, built on several acres of land, with several different horror movie zones, by a film director who feels that horror films are no longer scary, and who wants to change that. At the opening ceremony, people actually get killed for the crazed director's new film. Then the rest of the movie is our main characters making their way through the "park," fighting monsters, trying to stay alive and to find a way out. Derivative, but fun.
61) Blonde Heaven (Young Blood, Fresh Meat) (1995) - A young woman goes to Hollywood where she gets recruited by Julie Strain to join her vampire escort agency.
62) Pet Sematary (2019) - A doctor and his family move into a farm house next to a busy road. Their cat gets run over by a truck. The doctor buries it in an old Indian burial ground. The cat comes back... different. At least they changed up the story a bit here and there so it wasn't exactly like the 1989 version, but John Lithgow as the neighbor is the best thing about this, just as Fred Gwynne was the best part of the first version.
63) The Last Drive-in with Joe Bob Briggs: Scare Package - Another anthology film. A guy applies for a clerk position at a video store, and as the store owner is training him how to use their computer system, a customer walks up and tells them the plot to one of the movies he is about to rent: One Time in the Woods - People are camping in the woods when a guy comes along and starts to transform into something. Then one of the campers reveals himself to be a masked serial killer. Then there's lots of over-the-top gore, and the story ends; Next they watch a VHS tape: M.I.S.T.,E.R - A guy is in a bar and goes to the restroom. While he's taking a piss, he reads a notice tacked to the wall about M.I.S.T.,E.R. (Men in Serious Turmoil, Establishing Rights!) and goes to a meeting. The guy running the meeting invites him to an exclusive gathering later that night where the club members change in the moonlight; Then the new employee grabs a tape off a shelf titled Girls Night Out of Body - An Asian chick steals a skull-shaped lollipop from an Asian market, then goes to a sleepover with two friends. While they hang out, an asthmatic guy with a knife peeps in the window; Then the owner tells the new guy the plot of The Night He Came Back Again! Part IV - The Final Kill - A group of young people capture a masked killer who returns every Fourth of July, and try to kill him with a knife, electricity, fireworks, a double barreled shotgun, and a woodchipper; The new guy finds a tape that says "Watch Me' on the label, so he watches it. It's called So Much to Do - Two guys have a guy tied up in their car trunk. as they bury him, he begs them not to kill him because "I have so much to do!" Then he turns to smoke and rises from the grave and possesses some woman who he then fights for control of the body, and the TV remote. Finally in Horror Hypothesis - the video store owner wakes up and finds himself in a locked room with five other people, and figures he's in a horror movie. Normally, the constant interruptions would've irritated me, but since the movie mostly sucked, the interruptions helped (a little). Still, I prefer Joe Bob's old show on The Movie Channel where he played uncut films without interruptions.
64) The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs: Hogzilla - A TV news crew heads to a wooded area somewhere in Florida looking for a giant feral hog. Entertainingly bad low-budget flick quickly devolves into people pointlessly walking around and endlessly arguing. A least Joe Bob's comments during the breaks were entertaining.

10/13/21

65) Phantasm: Ravager (2016) - The fifth and final Phantasm movie (until the inevitable reboot/remake) finds Reggie walking in the desert. Then we see Reggie wake up in a hospital, suffering from dementia, and his story continues, bouncing around through space and time and dreams and reality. I thought I had seen the first four movies, but looking at my various lists, it looks like I've only seen the first two. Maybe I'll watch the two I haven't seen later this month, or wait and watch all five in order some time.
66) Clown Motel (Clown Motel: Spirits Arise) (2019) - Seven people stumble across a motel called "clown motel," next to a graveyard, in the middle of nowhere. After finding no one running the place, they decide to stay anyway. Eventually they're attacked by killer clowns who emerge from the adjacent graveyard.
67) Black Noon (1971) [YouTube] - Made for TV movie about a preacher (Roy Thinnes) and his sickly wife heading to his new assignment somewhere out west when their wagon breaks down, and they are rescued by the residents of a neighboring town (who are hiding a dark secret).

10/14/21

68) The Return of the Living Dead (1985) - Two nitwits working at a medical supply warehouse accidentally crack open a canister, releasing a zombie plague.
69) Sardu, Master of the Screaming Virgins (Bloodsucking Freaks) (1976) - Sardu stages S&M shows at his Theater of the Macabre where the "actors" are actually tortured and killed before an unsuspecting audience. Looking to expand, he kidnaps a well-known critic and a famous ballerina for his next show. "Borrows" heavily from The Wizard of Gore (1970) and Slaves in Cages: 'Slaver i bure'(1972).
70) Blood Harvest (1987) - A young woman comes home from college to find her parents missing and their house vandalized. Her ex-boyfriend, who is obsessed with her, and his weird brother, who is always wearing clown makeup, are invariably sneaking around the house, and someone wearing a stocking mask is stringing up people she knows in the barn and cutting their throats. Oh, and Tiny Tim warbles a ditty now and then. This one was much better than I expected it to be.
71) Army of the Dead (2021) [Netflix] - A team of zombie fighters goes into the zombie infested remains of Las Vegas to retrieve $200 million in cash locked away in a casino vault before the government nukes the city. The first fifteen minutes or so of this was great, then it slowed down a bit, and went on a little too long, feeling a bit like watching someone else playing a video game at times. It wasn't terrible, but that first fifteen minutes showed how much better it could have been.
72) Bando (Train to Busan Presents Peninsula) (2020) - A team of Korean refugees goes into the zombie infested remains of Incheon to retrieve $20 million in cash locked away in a truck. With all that CGI, this one also has a few scenes that feel like watching someone else play a video game. At just shy of 2 hours, it was about a half hour too long. It wasn't terrible, but it could've been better. Having the one group of survivors living in an old mall was a nice touch.
73) Rat Man (Quella Villa in Fondo al Parco) (1988) - A mad scientist on an island has crossed the DNA of a rat with that of a monkey, resulting in Rat Man, an ugly little guy whose teeth and claws are deadly to Italian models.

10/15/21

74) Boardinghouse (1982) - A guy with psychic abilities buys a house with a "bad rep," and rents out the rooms to a few young women. Eventually some people are killed and some other stuff happens. Shot on video in "HorrorVision."
75) Ammar 2: Cin Istilasi (2016) [B-Movie TV] - In this Turkish found footage flick, five college students investigate what happened to the guys in the first film (which I haven't seen, but apparently, like this one, it was about people investigating djinns). After driving around and interviewing a few people, they head into a forest, and it's The Turkish Blair Witch Project - shaky, handheld footage of people walking in the woods, getting lost, arguing, jumping at anything and everything.

10/16/21

76) Killer Queen (Girls School Screamers) (1986) - After a rich old guy dies and leaves his mansion and art collection to the Trinity School for Girls, seven students and a nun go to the mansion to catalog the collection. The first night there, the young ladies decide to hold a seance to contact the spirit of a woman who went to their school, and who died in the house over forty years earlier. Then, slowly, people start getting killed. It's a strange supernatural horror - slasher hybrid.
77) The 28th Day The Wrath of Steph (2013) [Vudu] - Another random.org pick. A young woman wakes up on the edge of a lake, a possessed "survivor" of a kind of Evil Dead-type event that happened before the movie started, near an old Indian burial ground. Then, she, her roommate, and a parapsychology professor team up to try to defeat the thing that is possessing her. I'm not sure what they were going for, but it came off as a bad Evil Dead fan film made by someone who had listened to the commentary track on The Evil Dead a few too many times, and thought to himself "Hell, I can do that."
78) The Love Witch (2016) - Following the unfortunate poisoning death of her husband, Elaine moves to a new town, looking for a Prince Charming, even if she has to kill a few more people to find him. Watching this was like watching brightly colored paint dry.
79) OMG... We're in a Horror Movie! (2016) [tubi] - A group of idjits are playing a board game when one of them rolls three sixes and they are transported into a horror movie. OMG... This was a horrible movie.
80) Project Vampire (1993) [B-Movie TV] - A vampire who wants to conquer the world is marketing a "Super Serum" to wealthy elites as a "longevity serum," but it actually turns them into vampires loyal to him. Meanwhile, a vampire scientist who has developed an antidote to the serum is on the run from the bad guy's vampire goons.
81) Sweet Sixteen (1983) [The Archive] - Fifteen year old Melissa and her family just moved to a small town somewhere in Texas, and every guy who shows any interest in her ends up stabbed to death. I liked this one, but it was more of a mystery and not a horror flick (even though IMDb calls it both).

12/17/21

82) The Horror at 37,000 Feet (1973) - The passengers on a star-studded overnight trans-Atlantic flight (carrying part of an old English abbey in its cargo hold) battle an ancient Druid deity that came along for the ride.
83) Hunter Hunter (2020) - A trapper hunts for a wolf that has invaded his area, but finds evidence that something else is also using the forest as a killing ground. Pretty good, but could have easily been great.
84) Campout Nightmare VI The Resurrection (1998) [B-Movie TV] - A shot on video horror flick without an IMDb page (it was made by a high school kid). Somebody who was supposed to be dead was after some other guy. Or at least the one guy was having nightmares about the dead guy. Then there was some yelling, and a flabby guy got out of a pool and put on a Scream mask. Then it kept going for a long time and I couldn't quite follow the story... but I couldn't stop watching. It was entertainingly inept. And I found out that there are three more earlier films on YouTube - about two hours worth - so maybe I'll watch them before Halloween if the mood strikes.
85) Dracula Père et Fils (Dracula and Son) (1976) - Dracula (Christopher Lee) takes a young woman as his bride, but doesn't bite her until after she gives birth to their son, Ferdinand. She stays out too late on her first night as a vampire, and dies at dawn, leaving Dracula to raise the boy alone. Then, a couple hundred years later, the Communists take over Dracula's castle, forcing Dracula and his son to flee the country. They get separated, with Ferdinand ending up in France, and Dracula ending up in England, where he becomes a movie star. Things start to get weird after they reunite, and they both fall for a woman who looks like Ferdinand's late mother.

10/18/21

86) Dracula's Widow (1988) - A guy setting up a new Dracula exhibit in his wax museum in Hollywood receives an extra crate from Transylvania. The extra crate contains Dracula's vampire wife, Vanessa, who bites the guy, then goes on a killing spree.
87) Death Steps in the Dark (Passi di Morte Perduti nel Buio) (1977) [OtherWorlds TV] - A woman is killed with a letter opener while a train goes through a tunnel, leaving the owner of the letter opener, a photographer, as the prime suspect. So he investigates the crime to find the real killer and clear his name. Meanwhile, the killer kills a few more people.
88) Supernatural (1933) - Not long after a woman inherits her twin brother's millions, she is contacted by a fake psychic, and she becomes possessed by a woman who was executed in the electric chair (for killing three men) who wants revenge on the fake psychic. Reminded me of The Phantom Speaks (1946), which I watched recently.
89) Tanin no kao (The Face of Another) (1966) - A businessman whose face was disfigured in an industrial accident receives a lifelike prosthetic face mask.
90) Zombieland Double Tap (2019) - Differences cause the group to split up. They meet some other survivors and continue to fight zombies.
91) Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981) - Five years after the events in the first film, a group of young people show up at a counselor training center near Camp Crystal Lake. People get killed.

10/19/21

92) Scared Stiff (1987) - A psychiatrist, a former patient, and her son, move into an old plantation house. The woman starts seeing things and having nightmares, and the man eventually becomes possessed by a rubber suited monster thing. A goofy, fun '80s ghost story.
93) #Followme (2019) [The Archive] - Found footage crap about a British YouTuber and her two slutty friends who, on their way to a YouTuber convention thing in San Francisco, go to L.A. and see the sights (and film every second). After almost an hour of home movies, they leave L.A. for San Francisco, and one of them receives a couple of riddles texted to her phone, they get a flat tire, they argue with each other, and we get more home movies. Finally stuff happens in the last few minutes of the film - Might be a decent watch if you fast forwarded through the first 70 minutes or so.
94) The Spiral Staircase (1946) - In the early Twentieth Century, a serial killer is killing disabled women in a small town. Our main character is a mute young woman (who the killer has targeted) who works near the town, in a spooky old house in the country. I had seen this before, probably over forty years ago, but remembered very little about it.
95) Sole Survivor (1984) - Around Christmas time, the only survivor of a plane crash starts to see dead people, leading her to believe that Death is trying to fix a mistake. This is one I had heard about for years, but hadn't gotten around to watching before now.

10/20/21

96) Halloween Party (2019) - A Canadian college girl is killed by her greatest fear (an anthropomorphic pig) after failing to answer a Halloween-themed computer virus that asks "What is your greatest fear?" Her friend enlists a computer nerd to help her investigate, and they discover that their college dorms used to be part of a hospital where some malformed children lived. I was expecting this movie to suck, but it was surprisingly decent.
97) Full Circle (The Haunting of Julia) (1977) - Julia's daughter chokes on an apple, and Julia (Mia Farrow), who apparently had never heard of the Heimlich maneuver (which Google tells me was introduced three years before this movie was released), decides to slit her daughter's throat with a steak knife. After the girl dies, Julia runs off and moves into an old haunted house where not much happens for the rest of the movie.
98) Tender Dracula (Tendre Dracula, The Big Scare, Tender Dracula, or Confessions of a Blood Drinker) (1974) [B-Movie TV] - After his biggest star (Peter Cushing) decides to quit doing horror and only do romance, a studio head sends two goofball writers and two singing actresses to the star's dark, gloomy castle, to be goofballs and to sing, I guess. Well, Peter Cushing was in it. So it had that going for it, at least.
99) Bone Tomahawk (2015) - In the late Nineteenth Century, a tribe of inbred cannibals abducts a cut-throat thief, a deputy, and a woman from a small town out West, and are pursued by a sheriff, a deputy, the woman's cowboy husband, and an Indian fighter. A long, slow moving film, but I liked it.

10/21/21

100) Dawn of the Dead (1978) - Four people take refuge in a mall during a zombie apocalypse.
101) Beyond Dream's Door (1989) - A college student has a few nightmares, so he types them up and gives the pages to his Psychology Professor to read. The professor recognizes the dreams from a case study he had read, but he is killed by a rubber suited dream monster when the kid's dreams start to bleed over into reality.
102) El Aullido del Diablo (Howl of the Devil) (1987) - A failed "serious" theater actor (Paul Naschy), and his nephew (and the nephew's imaginary monster friends) live on the estate which had belonged to his late horror movie actor twin brother. Young women come to the house, sleep with Naschy, and usually end up dead.

10/22/21

103) Endless Loop (2018) [B-Movie TV] - I guess I'll have to *WILDCARD* this one. IMDb calls it Crime/Mystery, but I'd call it a science fiction story with a serial killer in it. Seven strangers on a bus go into a tunnel, and keep going. After they stop to investigate, they find that if they head farther along in the tunnel, it loops back around to where they already are, even though the tunnel is straight for as far as they can see. Eventually they break through the wall of the tunnel into a room where they find a blueprint for a system of six tunnels, and before long they discover that there is a serial killer in there with them, or maybe one (or more) of them is the killer. Either way, people start dying, and the story gets weirder.
104) Night of the Living Dead (1990) - Okay remake directed by Tom Savini. They changed the story just enough to keep it somewhat interesting, but not enough to make it stand out from the original.

10/23/21

105) Suspiria (1977) - An American woman goes to a colorful European dance academy that is run by witches. It still amuses me that the girl who leaves in the opening is called Pat Hingle.
106) Suspiria (2018) - An American woman goes to a dreary European dance academy that is run by witches. To the film makers' credit, it looks like they realized they couldn't match the style of the original, and didn't even bother to try. Instead, they decided to remake the least compelling parts of the original, and concentrated on the story (stretching it out far too long), and the dancing.
107) Rabid (1977) - After receiving experimental skin grafts following a motorcycle accident, a young woman (Marilyn Chambers) grows a new appendage under her arm which she uses to drain blood from people for sustenance. Her victims become angry, bloodthirsty zombies who then attack others, spreading the infection (which officials believe to be a new strain of rabies) throughout Canada.
108) Rabid (2019) - After receiving experimental skin grafts following a motor scooter accident, a young fashion designer (Laura Vandervoort) develops a taste for blood, and bites people. Her victims become angry, bloodthirsty zombies who then attack others, spreading the infection (which doctors suspect is a "mutated, hyperactive strain" of rabies). Takes a long time, but eventually she gets a new CGI appendage under her arm, which she uses a couple of times to drain blood from people. Not the worst thing I've ever watched, but not all that good either.

10/24/21

109) Avenged (Savaged) (2013) [Vudu] - Another random.org pick. A young deaf woman inherits her dad's '68 GTO and immediately goes on a road trip into the American Southwest. She happens upon a group of inbred rednecks killing a couple of Native Americans, and gets abducted, raped, and killed. Later, her half-buried body is found by another Native American, who takes her to his place and performs some kind of ritual. Her re-animated corpse wakes up (partly possessed by a long-dead Apache chief) and starts hunting down and killing the men who attacked her (along with anyone else who gets in her way). A pretty good rape/revenge flick with a supernatural twist.
110) Freaky (2020) - A serial killer (Vince Vaughn) switches bodies with his latest would-be victim because of a curse on the ancient magical dagger he tried to use to kill her. A mildly amusing horror comedy that's worth a look, thanks to Vince Vaughn.
111) The Empty Man (2020) - An ex-cop investigating a teen's disappearance finds that all of her friends are missing also, and their disappearances are somehow linked to an Urban Legend, and a cult. It was okay, but way too long.

10/25/21

112) The Last Man on Earth (1964) - A scientist (Vincent Price) goes about his routine day-to-day existence in his boarded up suburban home following a plague which has turned most of the world's population into slow moving vampires.
113) Winchester (2018) - In 1906, Winchester executives, intent on wresting control of the company from eccentric majority shareholder Sarah Winchester (Helen Mirren), send a psychiatrist (with ghosts of his own) to evaluate the old lady's mental health at her strange (possibly haunted) abode. Another film I expected to not enjoy that turned out pretty good (yes, sometimes it helps to go into films with low expectations).

10/25/21

114) An American Werewolf in London (1981) - Two young Americans hiking through Northern England are attacked by something on the moors during a full moon. One is killed, and the other is sent to London to recuperate.
115) The Wolf Man (1941) - After Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney) returns to England from America, he is bitten by a werewolf and becomes The Wolf Man.
116) The Dead Don't Die (1975) [OtherWorlds TV] - While a sailor (George Hamilton) investigates the murder his brother was falsely sent to the electric chair for committing, he finds others who suffered similar fates who are now zombies.
117) The Dead Don't Die (2019) - Nothing much happens for about a half hour. Then zombies show up, and nothing much happens for another hour. This film was almost twice as long as the earlier, identically titled movie, with about half as much story.
118) The Rift (1990) - A crew of misfits in a Yellow Submarine, searching for a missing Yellow Submarine, find a few aquatic monsters and a bunch of green slime.
119) Friday the 13th Part III (1982) - Jason kills more people (somewhere near Camp Crystal Lake?), and gets a hockey mask... in 3D!

10/27/21

120) Halloween Kills (2021) - Picks up at the end of the previous one. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) spends most of the movie in a hospital bed, leaving the film to a bunch of secondary characters that no one cares about. There were a few nice moments, but it was mostly boring.
121) The Shining (1980) - A family of three stays in a haunted hotel during the off-season.

10/28/21

122) Doctor Sleep (2019) - Thirty-nine years after The Shining, Danny Torrance helps a thirteen-year-old girl with similar abilities fight against a group of psychic vampires who ingest "the shine" from gifted people.
123) The Addams Family (2019) - In this animated version, the family meets their neighbors. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either. I've already seen four or five different live action or animated Addams Families, so what's one more?
124) Found. (Found) (2012) - A twelve-year-old boy who gets bullied a lot at school finds a woman's head in a bowling ball bag in his big brother's bedroom closet. I got this DVD for free last Friday at Big Lots, and surprisingly I won't be making a lame joke about paying too much for it. The movie was a little slow, and a bit long, but it wasn't bad - I'm guessing they were going for a low-key story to contrast with that insane ending to make it seem even more outrageous as you experience it.
125) Headless (2015) - Feature length version of the film within a film (a faux slasher film from 1978) shown in the previous movie, directed and re-shot by the special effects guy (scenes from the original version play during the opening credits, but from there on, it's all new video). A guy wearing a skull mask kills a woman, cuts off her head, gouges out her eyes and eats them, then has sex with the head. Rinse and repeat. (Seriously. It's a bit like watching a magician perform the same two or three tricks over and over for ninety minutes.) This film was terrible - The story was shit, and it didn't look anything like a movie made in the late '70s.

10/29/21

126) Night of the Devils (La Notte dei Diavoli) (1972) - An Italian guy is in a hospital, with no memory of who he is. A young lady shows up, claiming to know him, and he runs off screaming. Then we watch a long flashback showing what happened to him. Another slow flick with a somewhat entertaining finale.
127) Dracula (1931) - Dracula moves to London, and battles Van Helsing. I love this movie, but, man, does it break the "show it, don't tell it" rule - half of the movie is someone telling someone else something cool that happened off screen.
128) Frankenstein (1931) - A mad scientist makes a monster, then gets married.

10/30/21

129) Dead of Night - A Darkness at Blaisedon (1969) [The Eerie Late Night Horror Channel (The Monster Channel)]- In this failed pilot for ABC (written by Dan Curtis and Sam Hall, co-starring Thayer David and Louis Edmonds, and directed by Lela Swift, with music by Robert Cobert - all from ABC's then popular daytime show, Dark Shadows), a young woman who has inherited a haunted house hires two paranormal investigators to chase away the ghost. Nothing great, but it was fun to watch - It felt like watching a lost, hour-long episode of Dark Shadows.
130) Blood Feast (1963) - Author/caterer/serial killer Fuad Ramses is hired by an upper middle class suburban woman to cater a surprise party for her daughter, who, coincidentally, is dating a detective investigating a series of bloody murders committed by Fuad Ramses.
131) Two Thousand Maniacs! (1964) - Six people get waylaid on their journeys by the residents of a small southern town, and are told they are the guests of honor for the town's centennial celebration. "It's an honor, dammit!"

10/31/21

132) Zacherley at Large: "The Brute Man" [The Eerie Late Night Horror Channel (The Monster Channel)] - An old, rough-looking episode of Zacherley at Large (Zacherle(y) is having a party with invisible ghosts, including his wife, in attendance), with a nice, clean copy of the movie (a PRC released B picture about police searching for a killer called The Creeper), and some vintage B&W commercials, spliced in. As is often the case with such compilations, I think I liked the old commercials best.
133) Halloween (1978) - Escaped mental patient stalks and kills teens.
134) Halloween II (1981) - Picks up where the previous film ended, with more of the same, just in a hospital, and not as good.

FILMS--LIST FINALIZED
Spoiler:
September 30
1. Wildling (2018). Netflix
. Like Ginger Snaps and The Company of Wolves, Wildling associates the onset of female puberty with untamed animal instinct. This plays out very much like a modern fairy tale. We know where the story is going, and we are just waiting to get to the end.
2. RoadGames (1981). Archive.org. I thought this was going to be a tedious slasher flick, but it's an enthralling suspense film with more than a little Hitchcock DNA, using the Hitchcock themes of the Anti-Hero, the Woman in Danger, and the Wrong Man at the climax.
3. The Flesh and the Fiends (1960). Blu-Ray. Peter Cushing and Donald Pleasance star in this fairly accurate depiction of the Burke and Hare murders that happened in early 19th-century Edinburgh.

October 1
4. Slither (2006). Amazon Prime. If 50s filmmakers had access to modern FX, Slither is the kind of movie they would have made. Slither brings the slime and gore, but it also has a sexist 50s worldview. Elizabeth Banks has nothing to do but scream, “Ah luv yew, Grant!”
5. The Wolf of Snow Hollow (2020). Epix. This could best be described as a cross between Fargo and The Brotherhood of the Wolf. An alcoholic sheriff with anger issues crumbles into a relapse as he tries to solve a string of murders in his mountain town that might be the work of a werewolf. The film is really less about the killings and more of a character study of the sheriff, a decent but deeply flawed man, played by writer/director Jim Cummings, who retreats into the bottle under the pressure of his job and his strained relationship with his daughter.
6. The Most Dangerous Game (1932). TV. Joel McCrea is on the run in this Pre-Code thriller that is the ancestor of every "man hunting man" film since.
7. Doctor X (1933). TV.A wise-cracking reporter investigates a mysterious killer who stalks his victims and devours part of their flesh.
8. Grabbers (2011). DVD. Perfect movie for today's theme. Alien tentacle monsters invade a small Irish island. the monsters are allergic to alcohol, so the inhabitants have to get hammered at the pub to avoid being eaten.

October 2
9. Aquaslash (2019). TV. Cheesy slasher movie about killings at a water park, climaxing in a gross display of blood and guts when the killer bisects one of the water slides with giant razor blades.
10. Silent Madness (1984). Tubi. In the 80s there was concerted effort by the Right, who wanted to slash public spending, and the Left, who were concerned with the neglect of people with mental illnesses in often dirty and dangerous mental hospitals, to deinstitutionalize people with mental illnesses. But because states were reluctant to fund halfway houses and support systems for psychiatric patients, the end result was a flood of people abandoned on the streets. Silent Madness is clearly a commentary on contemporary politics.
11. 976-Evil (1989) TV. Remember 1-900 numbers? Well, good thing you didn't call or you might get demon possessed.
12. Curtains (1983). DVD. A basic slasher elevated by terrific actors like John Vernon and Samantha Eggar.

October 3
13. The Cave (2005). DVD. A pro cave diving team find evil creatures beneath the Carpathian mountains. This was a solid action/ horror film. Not as good as The Descent, but well worth watching.
14. The Severed Arm (1973). YouTube.Terrible movie, even for drive-in fodder.
15. The Birds (1963). TV. A masterpiece that has stood the test of time.
16. Little Shop of Horrors (1986). TV. A terrific movie musical that is a decent adaptation of the original stage production.

October 4
17. The Frighteners (1996). DVD. Peter Jackson's audition for the Lord of the Rings, showing he knows how to handle special effects.
18. The Wolf Man (1941). Blu-Ray. Unlike its predecessor, "The Werewolf of London," The Wolf Man spawned a new genre of horror films that continue today.
19. She-Wolf of London (1946). Blu-Ray.This is more of a psychological horror film as a young woman believes she is a killer wolf person.
20. The Mephisto Waltz (1971). Blu-Ray. Despite the incoherent script and some lackluster acting, I enjoyed watching this.

October 5.
21. Witchfinder General (1968). Blu-Ray. When AIP released this British film to the US market, they renamed it after the Edgar Allan Poe poem, "The Conqueror Worm" to tie it to the Corman Poe films, although Witchfinder General is based on real history instead of Poe's fiction. Matthew Hopkins was a real historical figure who used the chaos of the English Civil War to hunt sad old women as "witches." Unlike the ending here, Hopkins died a wealthy man, peacefully in his own bed.
22. The Brotherhood of Satan (1971). Blu-Ray. Like Blacula, this movie is elevated from mediocrity by the performance of its star. Strother Martin's bombastic performance as the high priest of a Satanic coven that has reunited in a small rural California town to rejuvenate themselves by stealing the bodies of children absolutely makes TBoS a minor classic.
23. Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. (1988). Amazon Prime. Elvira's schtick is basically Goth drag, which works best in small doses. What saves this movie, full of one-note sex jokes and boob shots, is Cassandra Peterson's likeability as Elvira. She exudes independence and Riot Grrl power, and the freedom of being yourself as hard as you can.
24. Malignant. (2021). HBO Max. I thoroughly enjoyed this. The plot had me guessing until the very end, and James Wan used the magician's trick of misdirection brilliantly. The effects were terrific, and the acting was excellent. The use of The Pixies' "Where Is My Mind?" as the orchestral soundtrack cleverly epitomizes the film's theme.

October 6
25. Spontaneous (2020). Hulu.
Spontaneous is a teen movie with a brain. It's a slyly sardonic look at how people cope or fail to with tragedy, a fitting film for the age of COVID.
26. Pledge (2019). Hulu. College freshmen attend a pledge weekend with terminal results. Yes, this is a torture film, but it also demonstrates how much we sometimes participate in our own oppression.
27. Triggered (2020). Hulu. A group of college friends on a camping trip wake up wearing locked suicide vests, and they find out that only one of them can survive. Kaboomilarity ensues.
28. The Dunwich Horror (1970). TCM. A fairly decent Lovecraft adaptation directed by Daniel Haller, who had been the set designer for Roger Corman's films. A student from Miskatonic University gets caught up in unearthly shenanigans.
29. Cutting Class (1984). YouTube. Tedious slasher film that I'll bet Brad Pitt left off his resume. How did Martin Mull and Roddy McDowall get roped into this crap?

October 7
30. Cat People (1942) TCM.
Jacques Tourneur was a genius at using atmosphere to creep out an audience.
31. Carrie. (1976). Blu-Ray. 45 years later, Carrie has lost none of its power to shock.
32. Cat People (1982). Blu-Ray. Where the 1942 version used suggestion, Paul Schrader's film shows the full transformation, no doubt due to the advance in FX and the popularity of An American Werewolf in London and The Howling the year before.
33. Hellraiser (1987). Prime. Claire Higgins plays the real villain in this film. Pinhead and the Cenobites come to those who call them, but Julia is out here hammering dudes to death and feeding them to her undead boyfriend.

October 8
34. Frankenhooker (1990) DVD.
There's something endearing about this truly stupid movie.
35. The Curse of Humpty Dumpty (2021) Tubi. Dementia and a killer doll.
36. Slumber Party Massacre II (1988). Shudder. Utter crap
37. Twins of Evil (1971). DVD. Puritans vs vampires.

October 9
38. The Blood on Satan's Claw (1971). TV. A farmer in rural 17th-century England digs up a demon, and the children of the village start growing patches of hair and killing for the demon.
39. The Girl With All the Gifts (2016) TV. One of the best zombie films in recent years.
40. Svengoolie: Frankenstein (1931) TV. Karloff's performance is what makes this a classic.

October 10
41. The Belko Experiment (2017) Blu-Ray. Basically, Battle Royale in an office. I'd love to see a sequel to this.
42. Tremors (1990) Blu-Ray. The Arrow Blu is excellent.
43. Battle Royale (2000). DVD. The Belko Experiment, but with middle schoolers killing each other instead of office drones.
44. The Eighth Night (2021). Netflix. Good movie about monks and cops fighting a demon trying to find its other half and doom the world. The movie works entirely by suspense since there are no jump scares or effects scenes until the climax.

October 11
45. Blood Red Sky (2021). Netflix.
Criminals hijack an airplane, but they didn't count on a vampire being among the passengers. There's plenty of bloody action, but the film's heart is on the relationship between the poor woman infected with vampirism and her son.
46. The Swarm (2021). Netflix. A farmer grows locusts for food but discovers that people are on the menu. This is a slow burn film that focuses primarily on family dysfunction and obsession, and it only gets interesting toward the end.
47. The Mortuary Collection (2020). Shudder. I really liked this one, awesomely ghoulish tales and a spooky wraparound. This is a winner. but seeing Clancy Brown age is depressing.

October 12
48. Gnaw: Food of the Gods II (1989). YouTube. This was godawful. An experimental drug turns a sick child into a giant psychotic child, and then there are the giant rats. This has no connection to Food of the Gods except for the title which was slapped on to the film by the producers at the last minute.
49. The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini (1966). YouTube. Delightfully hokey beach party-ish drive-in fodder.
50. Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II (1987). Vudu. A high school girl is possessed by the spirit of a 1950s prom queen. This had potential, but it was just dull.

October 13
51. Curse of the Demon (1957). DVD.
Curse of the Demon works so well because it takes its subject so seriously. There is no camp, no winking at the audience. Because its characters, including skeptical Dana Andrews eventually, believe in the occult, we do too. Niall McGinnis is terrifically malevolent as the dark sorcerer Karswell. My sole critique echoes that of other critics, that the monster should have been suggested rather than shown. Those demon close-ups really hurt the film.
52. 1408 (2007). DVD. One of the better King adaptations. John Cusack plays a cynical skeptic who writes travel books about haunted sites, but finds more than he can handle in Room 1408.

October 14

53/54/55. In Search of Darkness (2019). Shudder.
The 80s spanned my late teens to my late 20s so this talking heads retrospective doc really hits my nostalgia nerve. I wish they had talked about some of the more obscure movies from that decade instead of rehashing the franchises and the movies we all know like the Friday the 13th series and the Elm Street films.
56. Master of Dark Shadows (2019). Vudu.Interesting doc about Dan Curtis, the man behind Dark Shadows and Carl Kolchak.
57/58/59. In Search of Darkness Part II (2019). Shudder.

October 15
60. The Wicker Man (1973). Blu-Ray.There is so much to love about this film, not least the music.

October 16
61. Hillbillys in a Haunted House (1967). YouTube.
I only watched this to satisfy today's theme because, dear God, this was horrible, drive-in fodder aimed at the Southern market. The shame of it that the cast has several great country performers like Ferlin Husky, Sonny James, and Merle Haggard, but the songs are utter drivel. The plot, such as it is, concerns country singers stranded at a haunted house that is really the headquarters of spies played by Basil Rathbone, Lon Chaney Jr, and John Carradine. Is there an actor in a gorilla suit? You bet there is!
62. Tower of Evil (1972). YouTube. When you see a naked woman stab a man to death and then run screaming into the fog, you know what kind of ride you're on.
63. The Beast Within (1982). Blu-Ray. I get the feeling the screenwriters didn't really know what they were doing and the whole story exists only to give a pretext for the transformation scene.
64. The Bad Seed (1956). TV. The filmmakers hired most of the Broadway cast to reprise their roles in this story about a child serial killer, but none of them knew how to modulate their performances for the camera, so what would appear to be dramatic from the back row of a Broadway theater seems hammy and overwrought on screen. That and the moralistic ending tacked on for the film make what should be a dark, disturbing tale into a camp classic.

October 17
65. Theater of Blood (1973). Blu-Ray.
The perfect film for today's theme. The film follows the Phibes template of Vincent Price bumping off his enemies by grotesque methods, this time derived from Shakespeare's plays.
66. Repo: The Genetic Opera (2008). Blu-Ray.Continuing today's theme. I wish the longer, uncut version were released.
67. Candyman (1992). Blu-Ray. I haven't seen the new remake yet, but I can't imagine anyone better than Tony Todd in the role.
68. Fade to Black. Shudder. I watched this last year for the challenge. It's not great, but worth watching.
69. Poltergeist (1982). TV. The effects don't really hold up, but this is still an enthralling film experience.
70. Burnt Offerings (1976). TV. An evil house feeds on an unsuspecting family. Despite an uneven script, this film still works, although it's difficult to buy Oliver Reed as an American suburban dad.

October 18
71. Rampant (창궐) (2018). Blu-Ray.
Rampant combines two of my favorite genres, historical epic and zombies! Similar in plot to the Netflix show "Kingdom." Rampant is a terrific blend of period drama, political intrigue, and gut-chomping zombie action. The basic plot, set during the Chosun dynasty, involves a plot by an evil minister to use the walking dead plague to seize power by zombifying the king.
72. Planet Terror (2007). DVD. Planet Terror is a bad film. Not "so bad it's good," just bad. Grindhouse would have been more interesting if Tarantino and Rodriguez had genuinely tried to make low-budget horror films for real instead of self-absorbed, star-studded campy rubbish. What would they have come up with if they had a George Romero budget of under $5 million, hired unknown actors, and wrote a good script? Carnival of Souls, The Blob, and Night of the Living Dead are enduring classics that were made with practically nothing. Let's see Tarantino and Rodriguez try to make good movies for pocket change.
73. Better Off Zed (2018).Tubi. Everyone stuck in quarantine over the past 18 months can identify with the couple stuck in their house during the zombie apocalypse. The husband is thrilled to be freed from his corporate rat race while his wife, an artist, grows ever more irritated that she has to handle all the work.

October 19

74. Willy's Wonderland (2021). Hulu.It just isn't Halloween without Nic Cage fighting Showbiz Pizzaesque animatronic mascots inhabited by the souls of Satan-worshipping cannibal cultists. This was just ridiculously fun.
75. The Ninth Gate (1999). Tubi. I'm a sucker for movies concerning forbidden lore and ancient volumes, but this didn't really deliver for me. The beginning started with promise, and then collapses at the end.

October 20
76. The Boys From County Hell (2021).Shudder.
The film takes a different direction in vampire lore. This vampire doesn't feast on victims one at a time; instead he drains them en masse at a distance as blood leaks from their unconscious bodies toward the vampire. The vampire is also immune to stakes and sunlight; only burial can stop the monster. The creature effects are really well done, and the plot went in unexpected directions. Of course, this being an Irish film, there's plenty of beer.
77. Daughters of Darkness (1971). Tubi.Exceedingly arty rehash of Elizabeth Bathory.
78. Cursed (2005). TV. I'm surprised I've never seen this before. The basic setup is that a brother and sister, played on-the-rise Jesse Eisenberg and Christina Ricci, are attacked by a werewolf and start to turn. The horror scenes are much less interesting than the satire of celebrity culture and Hollywood itself. The plot was extremely simple and it was easy to tell where the movie was going beat by beat. I doubt I'll revisit it.

October 21
79. The Devil's Rain (1975). Shudder.
From the last time I watched this for the 2012 challenge: "-So much about this film makes no sense, but if you just suspend your disbelief and go with it, it's a fun ride." You can't beat the cast." Ernest Borgnine, William Shatner, Eddie Albert, Tom Skerritt, it's just a shame the script is so poorly written.
80. The Collector (2009). Shudder. The sequel was much better.

October 22
81. We Are Still Here (2015). Amazon Prime.
A slow burn haunted house movie about a middle-aged couple mourning the recent death of their son who move into a house with a sinister past. The movie has a fairly slow pace with some jump scares and then picks up like gangbusters at the end.
82. The Manitou (1977).Blu-Ray.
Only the 70s could have produced such a goofy movie with an ending that had to have been inspired by Star Wars.
83. The Empty Man (2020). TV. The film has some interesting concepts, but it's overly long and has some wobbles in the script.
84. Dracula Has Risen From the Grave (1968). TV. Christopher Lee barely speaks in this one, but it has one of his best death scenes.

October 23
85. Freaky (2020) TV--Freaky Friday with a serial killer switching bodies with a teen girl
86. The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1973) Blu-Ray--One of Price's best films
87. Diary of the Dead (2007). Blu-Ray--The theme of video voyeurism causing societal alienation is even more relevant today with ubiquitous phones and live streaming every aspect of our daily lives.

October 24
88. La Horde (2009). YouTube.
A bunch of corrupt French police attack a gang in a deserted apartment block on the outskirts of Paris to take revenge for the death of one of their own. But when the zombie apocalypse pops, the cops and the gang members have to join up to stay alive. If you like guns and zombies, you will love this.

October 25
89. Wither (2012). Amazon Prime.
This has the same plot as The Evil Dead, but in Swedish. A group of young people head off to a cabin in the woods for a weekend of sex and booze, and they end up getting possessed by an underground demon. Shenanigans ensue.
90. Possessor (2020). Hulu. I thought this movie would have worked better without some of the absurd plot devices. Performing brain surgery on an assassination target that nobody will notice? Using unwitting innocents as meat puppets, and nobody investigates why random people murder rich men? This felt like a crude revamp of Joss Whedon's Dollhouse.

October 26
91. Return of the Living Dead Part II (1987). TV. This is a remake, not a sequel.
92. The Stepford Wives (1975). DVD. A classic of paranoia.
93. The Gate (1987). Tubi. My Little Lovecraft
94. Festival of Fright Part 1, (2008). DVD. A trailer compilation of drive-in horror flicks

October 27
95. 30 Days of Night (2007). Blu-Ray. It's refreshing to see actual scary vampires.
96. The Final Girls (2015). Hulu. A charming love letter to 80s slasher films.

October 28
97. Body Bags (1993). ShoutFactoryTV.
This is a solid anthology film from John Carpenter.
98. The Untold Story (1993). Shudder. Boy, did I hate this. It's not even horror, it's just a really unpleasant crime film.
99. Horror Noire. (2021). Shudder. 6 stories in 2 and a half hours. This is an uneven anthology, dealing with racism, pedophilia, religion and, of course, monsters.
100. KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park.YouTube. I watched this for nostalgia, but this is one of the worst films ever made. The story is some nonsense about an evil scientist creating evil KISS androids to destroy the amusement park that fired him.

October 29
101. Ladrones de Tumbas (1989). YouTube.
There's a lot to like here, mostly the kills and the effects, but there was way too much screaming. Digging up a dead Satanist who starts killing teens is not exactly original, and the movie wore out its welcome toward the end On the plus side, Agustin Bernal who played the executioner was a smoking hot muscle daddy!
102. Inferno (1980). Tubi.I absolutely loved this flick. This follow-up to Suspiria fills in more of the Three Mothers mythology and has some amazing set pieces, like the flooded ballroom at the beginning of the movie.
103. Opera. (1987). Tubi. I didn't love this as much as Inferno, although it had a more cohesive story. I would have liked it more without the English dubbing.

October 30
104. Evil Dead II (1987). Blu-Ray.
This is a remake, not a sequel. Unlike the first film which was straight-up horror, this includes a lot of humor that doesn't always work.
105. Warlock (1989). Blu-Ray.Julian Sands makes for a debonair monster as the titular warlock who has traveled forward in time 300 years from 1692 Massachusetts Bay to 1980s LA.
106. Countdown (2019). TV. A nurse downloads an app that predicts the hour of its user's death, and demonic shenanigans ensue. I didn't really enjoy this It's aimed at a YA audience, so the scares and deaths are mild.

Halloween
107. The Omen (1976). Blu-Ray. 45 years and countless viewings later, The Omen still works for me. A top-notch cast and excellent direction by the late Richard Donner still make this an eerie experience.
108. WNUF Halloween Special (2013). Shudder. How much do I love this movie? It's both a loving tribute to the 80s and local TV and a genuinely scary experience reminiscent of BBC's Ghostwatch, another "live TV report" that goes horribly wrong.
109. The Paul Lynde Halloween Special (1976). YouTube. This is such a perfect 1970s time capsule.
110. Coco (2017). Netflix. A plucky little boy ventures into the Land of the Dead on El Día de los Muertos to connect with his great-great grandfather's legacy.
111. Beetlejuice (1987). Blu-Ray. I haven't watched this in a long time, and it holds up really well. Michael Keaton is only onscreen for a few minutes but he completely owns the movie. Hard to remember when Alec Baldwin was a sex symbol before all the scandals.
112. Slaxx (2020). Shudder. This was a lot better than I expected and I enjoyed the social satire skewering the shallow, fake commitment to social progress companies use to hide their unethical practices.
113. Halloween Kills (2021). Peacock. I'm not a fan of the franchise, but Jamie Lee Curtis is always worth watching.
