Re: The 18th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread***

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

Sept 30th
1)Poltergeist ('15) - (3D BLU RAY) ? 5/10
2)Hocus Pocus 2 - (streaming) - I learned that all good revenge spells contain blood of your enemy 6/10
3)The Funhouse - (BLU RAY) I learned never to agree to sexually gratifying carnival freak no matter how much money may be involved 6/10

Oct 1st
4)Shark Week - (BLU RAY) I learned that beaches are quite lovely when not terrorized by sharks. Just kidding, I learned not to buy any more Asylum films...yikes 1/10
5)The Brain - (BLU RAY) I learned hypnosis is definitely not the right form of therapy for teenage delinquency 7/10
6)The Lodge - (streaming) - I learned that it isn't a good idea to play purgatory pranks on survivors of cult suicide 6/10
7)Satanic Panic - (BLU RAY) I learned demons have to follow more rules than Yahtzee 7/10

Oct 2nd
8)Slither - (BLU RAY) I learned that parasitic alien symptoms look an awful like a bee sting. Love this film, great horror homages throughout, funny and excellent use of puppetry/practical effects over CGI 8/10
9)The Craft - (BLU RAY) I learned to choose the 4th member of your coven wisely. Nothing wrong with this film, I just didn't grow up with it and felt a bit "MTV generation" for my liking 6/10
10)The Vineyard - (BLU RAY) I learned not to let complete strangers perform acupuncture on you 6/10

Oct 3rd
11)The Lighthouse - (BLU RAY) I learned how it's bad luck to kill a seagull despite how annoying they may be. Standout for me, performances from Defoe and Pattinson were phenomenal and reminded me of the rivalry between Quint and Hooper in Jaws which is the highest praise I can give. 9/10
12)Jurassic Shark - (DVD) I learned a shark is capable of jumping onto land to attack and digest a human torso while landing in a nearby body of water, it's like a shark version of a somersault. Lots to laugh at here. My first commentary was how the film has a credit for "additional dialogue" during the opening credits - this movie needs ADDITIONAL dialogue? There are scenes where characters are literally walking through woods not saying a word, with camera edits from different view points (front of them, behind them, aerial, ground etc). DVD cover has a shark chewing through a yacht, but the biggest boat destroyed in the actual film is a rowboat. 3/10

Oct 4th
13)The Black Phone - (BLU RAY) I learned a little girl's dreams are just as good as having a search warrant 8/10

Oct 5th
14)Terrifyer - (BLU RAY) I learned it is possible to cut a human in half using a hacksaw. Bound to become a classic and perhaps the next slasher icon. 9/10

Oct 6th
15)Frankenstein ('31) - (BLU RAY) I learned it's best to wait to get married until AFTER the monster you created is destroyed 10/10
16)Jurassic Shark 2: Aquapocalypse - (DVD) I learned that drilling noises keep sharks away. One actress who sits in an office and talks via conference call looks like a teacher we have all had at some point in our education. 2/10

Oct 7th
17)Terrifyer 2 - (theaters) I learned to keep any celestial weapons your father may have passed down to you. For a horror film, had TOO much character development and a bit long in run time with some plots or scenes that could have been edited or trimmed, but still has some brutal kills and the mime acting is still phenomenal. 7/10
18)Jaws of the Shark - (DVD) I learned that if you manage to subdue a genetically engineered shark, it's a real dumb idea to return it to its creators. This one had me laughing out loud so many times, perhaps intentionally. Let me give you a few examples - a detective says "I'll have to fish for clues" then cuts to him literally fishing off a dock for clues. The shark baits a policeman using a wallet on a string. A bounty hunter fantasizes about sleeping with his minigun after being rejected by a model. A policeman brings in a lineup of suspects which include imitations of Michael, Jason, Leatherface and Ghostface and some random black guy with an inflatable shark prop. By far best of the bad shark movies 5/10

Oct 8th
19)The Meg - (3D BLU RAY) I learned there is always a bigger fish. 6/10
20)Bride of Frankenstein- (BLU RAY) I learned to befriend a blind person when you're a society outcast. 9/10
21)Nightbreed - (BLU RAY) I learned to ask your psychiatrist how may knives they may own before allowing them to treat you. Check out the comic series for a sequel story 7/10

Oct 9th
22)Son of Frankenstein - (BLU RAY) I l erarned not to let your father's lab assistant goad you into ruining your family's legacy 6/10
23)Alien Shark - (DVD) I learned a seashell and yelling "go away" is all you need to ward of alien forces. Total ripoff, not much aliens and not much sharks. Just chose one of the other if you're going to be a filmmaker 2/10

Oct 10th
24)Ghost of Frankenstein - (BLU RAY) ? 5/10
25)Deep Blue Sea - (BLU RAY) I learned to bring an axe with you if you're going to plan on hiding in an oven 6/10

Oct 11th
26)Deep Blue Sea 2 - (BLU RAY) I learned screaming underwater at a shark charging you is a completely ineffective way to repel it 4/10
27)Abrakadabra - (BLU RAY) ? Is it just me or does the main actor look exactly like Louis CK? 6/10

Oct 12th
28)X - (BLU RAY) I learned to ask your doctor for medical clearance before you start any murder spree. 7/10
29)Shark Virus - (DVD) ? Clearly takes place in a high school with lockers in background, classroom doors etc. Heck, even the swimming pool has swimming lane ropes in it. 1/10

Oct 13th
30)Halloween Kills - (BLU RAY) I learned a charcuterie knife is a terrible defensive weapon choice. Hated it in theaters last year, but grew on me a little. Sure, mob mentality is dumb but the brutality of Michael brings it up a few points. 6/10
31)Sharktopus - (DVD) I learned Mexico is every aquatic specimen's first stop after breaking out of confinement. 3/10

Oct 14th
32)Halloween Ends - (theater) I learned it takes only a few stabs for a serial killer to get their murdering mojo back 4/10
33)Trilogy of Terror - (BLU RAY) I learned to follow instructions found on any scroll as scripture that may come with any toy/gift 6/10

Oct 15th
34)Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man - (BLU RAY) I learned not to rob any graves during a full moon. 6/10
35)House of Frankenstein - (BLU RAY) I learned that Dracula is the least effective of the Universal Monsters at carrying out your revenge plot 5/10
36)Jaws 2 - (BLU RAY) I learned trying to defend yourself against a shark attacking your boat with a flare gun is smart, but what is not smart is firing the flare after you try turning it away by pouring gasoline all over it. I don't care what other people say, I think this is a great sequel. Impossible to match the first, sure, but still good. 8/10
37)Jaws 3D - (3D BLU RAY) ? Fun to watch in 3D 5/10
38)47 Meters Down - (BLU RAY) I learned the bends is way more scary than sharks preying on you (at least the way the film portrays it) 7/10

Oct 16th
39)Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein - (BLU RAY) I learned it's possible to bumble your way through life-threatening situations 6/10
40)47 Meters Down 2: Uncaged - (BLU RAY) ? 5/10

Oct 17th
41)Candyman ('22) - (4K BLU RAY) I learned to choose the inspiration for the subject matter of your art wisely 8/10
42)The Kindred - (BLU RAY) I learned that the next time your mom asks you to burn something, you do it no questions asked. 7/10

Oct 18th
43)The Fly ('86) - (BLU RAY) I learned insect politics is very brutal 10/10

Oct 19th
44)Deep Blue Sea 3 - (BLU RAY) I learned a trash compactor is the best hiding spot from sharks 5/10

Oct 20th
45)Prince of Darkness - (4K BLU RAY) I learned you're either in a soup kitchen or building housing Satan's offspring if you find yourself surrounded by homeless who won't leave 6/10

Oct 21st
46)Titane - (streaming) I learned that cars can be, like, REALLY erotic 5/10
47)Frankenhooker - (BLU RAY) I learned not to stand in front of any self-propelled lawnmowers 9/10
48)The Reef - (BLU RAY) I learned treading water is like going to the gym and getting stuck during a hard set - think about sex, and you can push through 7/10

Oct 22nd
49)Open Water - (BLU RAY) I learned to make sure your head counter can, you know, actually count... 6/10
50)The Eyes of My Mother - (streaming) I learned to never let a stranger hold your baby, ever, even for a second. 6/10
51)Parasite ('82) - (3D BLU RAY) ? 4/10
52)Jaws 4: The Revenge - (BLU RAY) I learned to stick with studying konch shells. 2/10

Oct 23rd
53)The Reef 2: Stalked - (BLU RAY) I learned to bring a machete on your next kayak trip. 6/10
54)In the Mouth of Madness - (BLU RAY) I learned if you're published in 18 different languages, you can start to re-write reality. 8/10
55)Girls Nite Out - (BLU RAY) ? 5/10

Oct 24th
56)Bodies, Bodies, Bodies - (4K BLU RAY) I learned that anyone is a Libra Moon is clearly not capable of murder 7/10

Oct 25th
57)Open Water 2: Adrift - (BLU RAY) I learned to put the damn latter down before you jump in the water. Greatly disappointed it has 0 sharks, but still terrifying for different reasons. 5/10
58)A Quiet Place - (BLU RAY) I learned not to bring your children on your next supply raid 8/10
59)Avalanche Sharks (DVD) I learned that love is DEFINITELY not the answer 4/10

Oct 26th
60)The Night House - (streaming) I learned that death can be fooled by look-a-likes 7/10
61)Young Frankenstein - (BLU RAY) I learned that monsters created through re-animating dead tissue have a crazy high libido 9/10
62)A Quiet Place 2 - (4K BLU RAY) ? 6/10
63)Color Out of Space - (BLU RAY) I learned holidays are great for seeing family, but if you really want to get your family close, try submitting your loved ones to radiation from a cosmic meteor 6/10
64)Shark Bait - (DVD) I learned not to play Chicken on a jet ski 4/10

Oct 27th
65)Sharknado - (BLU RAY) I learned to hold a running chainsaw above your head while kneeling if in danger of flying sharks 3/10
66)Werewolf by Night - (streaming) ? 6/10

68)Session 9 - (BLU RAY) I learned not to go in for a hug to a man holding a carving knife 6/10
69)Open Water 3: Cage Dive - (BLU RAY) I learned that although highly effective, lighting a flare inside an emergency raft is not the best way to warm a person suffering from hypothermia. 6/10

Oct 28th
70)May the Devil Take You - (streaming) I learned it's all superstitious shit until you see someone floating. Very similar to Evil Dead which is a good thing 8/10
71)Nope - (BLU RAY) I learned that it's ok to say "Nope" to situations and just back away sometimes. 7/10
72)The Dark and Wicked - (BLU RAY) I learned the importance of listening to your parents. If they tell you not to come to their house, don't visit. 6/10
73)Hellraiser ('22) - (streaming) I learned not to finish a puzzle...ever 8/10

Oct 29th
74)Goosebumps 2 - (4K BLU RAY) I learned to let the evil ventriloquist dummy into your family. It'll save you a bunch of trouble 6/10

Re: The 18th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread***

This will be my 17th consecutive year participating in the "October Horror Movie Challenge!"
Total Horror Movies Before This Year = 630

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

September 30, 2022 {after sundown}
1. Scream (2022) - Just okay fifth entry in the Scream franchise - this one particularly echoes the original.

October 1, 2022
2. Ghostbusters II (1989) - I hadn't seen this sequel since its original theatrical release; it's better than I remembered.
3. Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021) - This direct follow-up to the original Ghostbusters, though, may be the better sequel.

October 2, 2022
4. Venom (2018) - Silly, B-movie, horror-style take on the Spider-man villain (sans Spider-Man). I liked it.
5. Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021) - Follow-up to Venom that brings in Woody Harrelson as Carnage.

October 3, 2022
5.5 Midnight Mass "Book I: Genesis" (2021)
6 Midnight Mass "Book II: Psalms" (2021)

October 4, 2022
6.5 Midnight Mass "Book III: Proverbs" (2021)
7 Midnight Mass "Book IV: Lamentations" (2021)

October 5, 2022
7.5 Midnight Mass "Book V: Gospel" (2021)
8 Midnight Mass "Book VI: Acts of the Apostles" (2021)

October 6, 2022
8.5 Midnight Mass "Book VII: Revelations" (2021) - A 7-part netflix series. Vampire story with heavy philosophical discussions. Brooding and interesting, albeit a bit talk-heavy.
9. The Outer Limits "The Galaxy Being" (1963) - Fun little first contact story - the initial episode of the original iteration of this series.

October 7, 2022
10. Spooky Buddies (2011) - This won't be the only Halloween offering from Disney+ I'll be watching this month with my son, I'm sure.

October 8, 2022
11. Svengoolie: The Black Cat (2021 / 1934)
12. Svengoolie: Black Friday (2021 / 1940) - A couple vintage Universal horror flicks, as hosted by Svengoolie on my DVR.

October 9, 2022
13. Svengoolie: Abbott and Costello Meet Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (2021 / 1953)
14. Svengoolie: Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (2021 / 1948) - A couple old A+C meet the monsters flicks, as hosted by Svengoolie.

October 10, 2022
15. Under Wraps 2 (2022) - The young teen trio from last year's Disney+ film return for another go-round with Harold the mummy.

October 11, 2022
16. Hotel Transylvania: Transformania (2022) - The fourth installment in this movie franchise offers similar monster hijinks, though Adam Sandler and Kevin James have been replaced in the cast.

October 12, 2022
17. Scooby-Doo (2002) - First time viewing of this live-action take on the classic cartoon series. I didn't think it was as bad as its reputation would suggest.

October 13, 2022
18. Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (2004) - Sole sequel to the aforementioned Scooby-Doo. Not great - but quirky fun at times.

October 14, 2022
19. Labyrinth (1986) - Hallucinogenic fantasy starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly. The goblins / puppetry are creative - though the songs aren't amongst Bowie's best.

October 15, 2022
20. Svengoolie: Son of Frankenstein (2021 / 1939)
21. Svengoolie: House of Frankenstein (2021 / 1944) - A couple vintage Universal horror sequels, as hosted by Svengoolie.

October 16, 2022
22. Svengoolie: The Thing from Another World (2020 / 1951)
23. Svengoolie: It! The Terror from Beyond Space (2022 / 1958) - A double dose of classic '50s alien terror, as hosted by Svengoolie.

October 17, 2022
24. Monsters University (2013) - Fun, albeit slight, prequel to Monsters Inc.

October 18, 2022
25. Lightyear (2022) - My 5-year-old liked this. It's got enough alien / robot elements that I'll include it in this year's list.

October 19, 2022
25.25 Sventoonie (2022) "Knock Knock Who ... Dares?!"
25.5 Sventoonie (2022) "Vincent Price Is Right"
25.75 Sventoonie (2022) "Specimen Container"
26. Sventoonie (2022) "An Ax to Grind" - Svengoolie "after party" show lampooning, respectively, Night of the Living Dead, House on Haunted Hill, Creature, and Dementia 13.

October 20, 2022
26.25 Sventoonie (2022) "An American Vampire in America"
26.5 Sventoonie (2022) "Super Seventies Sell-Outs"
26.75 Sventoonie (2022) "A Bucket of Blood"
27. Sventoonie (2022)"Jordan Versus Bird" - More entries in the Svengoolie "after party" series. These ones poke fun at The Satanic Rites of Dracula, Horror Express, A Bucket of Blood, and The Terror.

October 21, 2022
27.25 Sventoonie (2022) "Now Available for Birthday Parties"
27.5 Sventoonie (2022) "Hellspring is in the Air"
27.75 Sventoonie (2022) "Feed Me!"
28. Sventoonie (2022) "Organ Failure" - Nearing the end of the first season of Sventoonie on the DVR with episodes that riffed The Last Man on Earth, Lady Frankenstein, The Little Shop of Horrors, and Carnival of Souls.

October 22, 2022
29. Svengoolie: The Ghost and Mr. Chicken (2022 / 1966)
30. Svengoolie: Munster, Go Home! (2021 / 1966) - A pair of comedic fright flicks, oddly both from 1966, as hosted by Svengoolie.

October 23, 2022
30.25 Sventoonie (2022) "Trevor Runs for Office"
30.5 Sventoonie (2022) "Ain't No Party Like a Donner Party" - Riffs on Werewolf of Washington and Messiah of Evil wrap up the first season of Sventoonie on my DVR.
31. The Outer Limits "The Human Factor" (1963) - Another interesting episode of the classic series.

October 24, 2022
32. Hocus Pocus (1993)
33. Hocus Pocus 2 (2022) - A double dose of Bette Midler witchery on Disney+.

October 25, 2022
34. The Haunted Mansion (2003) - Eddie Murphy is his Eddie Murphy-est in this Eddie Murphy vehicle based upon the ride.
34.25. To Build a Fire (2016) - Animated short adapting the classic London story.
34.5. The Tell-Tale Heart (1953) - Animated short adapting the classic Poe story.
35. Boris Karloff's Thriller "The Premature Burial" (1961) - Karloff both hosts and stars in this adaptation of Poe's story.

October 26, 2022
36. How to Make a Monster (1958) - A fun monster outing from American Internation Pictures - The plot reminded me of The Devil Bat.
37. Earth Vs The Spider (1958) - Goofy teen monster film from the 1950's typical of American International.

October 27, 2022
38. The Thing That Couldn't Die (1958) - This relic from the end of Universal's black-and-white era isn't good per se, but it is fun to watch.
39. The Haunted Strangler (1958) - Lurid period horror film from late in Boris Karloff's career; I thought Corridors of Blood, made in the same year by the same studio, was a better vehicle for him.

October 28, 2022
40. Svengoolie: The Invisible Man Returns (2021 / 1940)
41. Svengoolie: The Invisible Woman (2020 / 1940) - A pair of Invisible Man follow-ups from Universal, as hosted by Svengoolie.
42. The Undead (1957) - Silly to the extreme, but still fun, Roger Corman low budget production.

October 29, 2022
43. Svengoolie: The Frozen Ghost (2021 / 1945)
44. Svengoolie: Indestructible Man (2021 / 1956)
45. Svengoolie: House on Haunted Hill (2022 / 1959) - Two Lon Chaney Jr treats followed up with a splash of Vincent Price, as hosted by Svengoolie.

October 30, 2022
46. Tarantula (1955) - John Agar is his John Agar-iest in this fun, campy 1950's giant spider film.
47. Devil Doll (1964) - Curious, though not altogether successful, British import involving ventriloquism and soul transference.
48. The Crawling Eye (1958) - I rather liked this old British sci-fi monster flick.

October 31, 2022
49. The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971) - Notable vehicle in Vincent Price's career: an avant garde revenge horror film. Quite unlike any other horror film I've seen.

Total # of movies = 49
All-Time 17-Year Total = 679

Out of 17 October Horror Movie Challenges I've participated in at DVD Talk, 2022 is my third best showing - only beaten by 2009 (52 movies) and 2007 (50 movies). I'd say I did pretty darn well!

11 months to go until (hopefully) DVD Talk's 2023 October Horror Movie Challenge!

Re: The 18th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Thread***

September 30 (Dusk)
1. The AGFA Horror Trailer Show (Blu-ray)

Just a good old fashioned warm-up to the main attractions. I kind of put these on when I find one as more background than something I pay close attention to like I would a film. This is pretty much what it says, a compilation reel of trails, no surrounding framework to get in the way like Terror in the Aisles. Some films may be immediately recognizable as something released by Vinegar Syndrome or related partners, but, surprisingly, quite a few that were unfamiliar to me.

2. Child's Play (4k)
3. Child's Play 2 (4k)

October 1st
4. Child's Play 3 (4k)
5. Bride of Chucky (Blu-ray)
6. Seed of Chucky (Blu-ray)
7. Curse of Chucky (Blu-ray)
8. Cult of Chucky (Blu-ray)

October 2nd
9. Chucky S01E01/S01E02 (Blu-ray)
10. Chucky S01E03/S01E04 (Blu-ray)
11. Chucky S01E05/S01E06 (Blu-ray)
12. Chucky S01E07/S01E08 (Blu-ray)

I'm rewatching the Child's Play series for a couple reasons: 1) The recent release of the 4k UHD discs from Scream Factory and 2) the steelbook blu-ray release of season 1 of the series which I'd seen most episodes but not all previously.

Child's Play is a classic for a reason: Brad Dourif as the voice of Chucky combined with some surprisingly good animatronics and one of the most classic taglines in horror movie history with "Hi! I'm Chucky! Wanna Play?" I still get creeped out when that part of the movie starts all the way to the end. Child's Play 2, on the other hand, is still fairly enjoyable but seems mostly to be a retread of the first one and not as interesting but not without its charms either. Child's Play 3 moves the action forward in time and changes locations. The actor who plays Andy in this one is kind of weak but there's some good gore. The next two films, Bride and Seed, I like a lot as horror comedies though it seems like Seed is kind of hated by fans. Tiffany is a welcome addition but Seed does get a bit 'meta' which might turn off some fans like Ocean's Twelve did. Curse is again kind of a retread of #1 and the cast just isn't very likable here. Then there is Cult of Chucky - I seem to recall that one wasn't too well liked but I think it's very fun and feels like Don Mancini was trying to shake things up and not just do the same thing over and over again. I also like films that take place in mental institutions, especially ones that seem to have long abandoned very WHITE hallways.

After reading the history of how the remake from a few years ago came to be, I don't think I'll add that one to my collection - it was ok but just seems so pointless when Brad Dourif was and is Chucky to me (No offense to Mark Hamill fans). I really enjoyed the tv show and and I'm liking the recent uptick in bringing back properties into tv form successfully (The Exorcist, Ash Vs the Evil Dead, From Dusk Til Dawn, Chucky). I don't get Syfy and it was almost impossible to catch all episodes last season since I don't have cable so it might be awhile before I can see Season 2 after it airs.


13. Blood, Guts, and Sunshine (Blu-ray)

Wasn't quite what I expected. The documentary mentioned Herschell Gordon Lewis and William Grefe at the beginning but then the majority of the doc was about Tampa's underground horror movie filmmaking and SOV scene. SOV is not for me from what I've seen so I can't say I was familiar with anything shown here. But they did talk about Grindhouse Video which was nice.

October 3rd

14. Satan's Children (blu-ray)

Not a whole lot of Satan here, but I was wondering how you can drive around at night with a naked pasty white guy spread eagled in your car doing vague but very clearly implied things to him. Even though he clearly dug chicks, I never realized how homophobic your random Satanist cult was too! Honestly, except for the acting (deliberately bad I thought), the only horror was at the very end scene. Still, one of the better AGFA releases.

16. The 101 Scariest Horror Movie Moments of All Time S01E03/S01E04 (Shudder)
17. Bram Stoker's Dracula (4k)

I remember seeing Dracula in theaters and being very excited when it came out, ultimately being disappointed. But I just had to see what the 4k looked like and, to that end, I was very pleased indeed. I still maintain that Keanu is terribly miscast in this movie but his acting and accent go hand in hand here. I also wasn't fond of Winona Ryder who I mainly knew from Beetlejuice and seemed to be cast mainly because of her goth girl appearance in that movie. Gary Oldman is clearly the breakout star of this movie and I think his performance still holds up head and shoulders above everyone else - found him pretty mesmerizing. I can see adding this film back into my repertoire purely for Oldman alone and the vivid colors throughout.

October 4th

18. Scream 2 (4k)

October 5th

19. Stanley (Blu-ray)

I did enjoy this one a lot. The best acted of any Grefe film I've seen and the tension was in all the right places. One of my better VS purchases I think.

20. Poltergeist (4k)

Regardless of who was responsible for directing what parts of this movie, it is still one of the most terrifying horror movies I've seen. My parents probably made a mistake letting me watch this when I was around 7 or 8 years old when it first came to cable. I had to cover my eyes at some scenes and couldn't sleep that night. And I hate clowns.

October 6th

21. Fright Night (4k)

I only saw Fright Night a couple years ago, kind of late to the party I think. But I really enjoy this one and it has the late great Roddy McDowell who I love to see in pretty much anything. It made me really want a 4k steelbook of The Legend of Hell House - I think that would be glorious. Some of the effects here are great and others pretty goopy. The villain is pretty threatening and frightening but doesn't feel 'one note' either. A bit intense at times but pretty kid friendly I think.

22. Species (4k)

I'm just not digging this one at all. The movie pretty much fits what I thought the film would be like when I saw the trailer in the mid-90s. It's got some good actors in it too like Ben Kingsley and Michael Madsen; sometimes you just wonder how they ended up agreeing to be in something this bad.

23. The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies (Blu-ray)

Ok I've seen the MST3K version a long time ago, didn't remember a thing about it. I think I may have made a huge Oopsie by having the whole Ray Dennis Steckler set now. This is probably the best known film in the bunch and OMGSS!!!!1111!!!oneoneone is it hard to get through. The musical numbers are absolutely horrible, contribute nothing to the plot, and make you want to gouge your eyes out to sit through. I had forgotten where Ortega came from in MST3K lore as it had been so long since I subjected myself to this one.

October 7th

24. Hellraiser (2022) (Hulu)

I'm starting to think I'm not a fan of the Hellraiser series, but I was both fascinated and terrified by the first one in the 80s. It had a quality that none of the sequels replicated, maybe it was my own interpretation but I loved the idea that the Cenobites could inflict BOTH extreme pain as well as extreme pleasure - that, to them, there was no difference because at the level of sensation they experienced it was all one and the same. No sequel ever explored that really, it was all just inflicting pain on individuals for the sake of torment only. Now this 2022 version, I found the Cenobites pretty tepid overall and the movie itself bloated, just way too long for what it is.

25. The 101 Scariest Horror Movie Moments of All Time S01E05 (Shudder)/Interview with a Vampire S01E01 (Shudder)
26. The Witch (4k)

The Witch is one of my favorite horror movies of all time - I've watched it quite a few times and may be a yearly viewing. Everything about it just clicked for me with the focus on witchcraft hysteria, the set design and acting choices, just love this film. I think a lot of people don't find it scary in the traditional sense but I find it tense and artful and the buildup and release at the end definitely has me on the edge of my seat.

27. Chucky S02E01 (Youtube)/Solar Opposites Halloween Special (Hulu)/Bob's Burgers S06E03 "The Hauntening" (Hulu)

October 8th

28. Censor (Blu-ray)

This one I like a lot, especially as an intro to watching some Video Nasty or Giallo film. I've seen a lot of criticism over the film but I'm not sure I understand why. It gets a bit dreamlike towards the end, but it's the use of color that is a dead giveaway that it's also taking a lot from Argento. I find the time period and setting fairly unique for modern horror films as I don't recall one using the Video Nasty period much like this one. Anyway, I like it.

29. The Wolf Man (4k)

I like this movie ok but it has always been my least favorite of the major Universal monsters and the least of Werewolf movies too, but the thing that annoys me most is the repetitiveness of the poem throughout the movie.

30. Mister Harrigan's Phone (Netflix)

Completely anemic Stephen King based movie with no thrills, nothing scary, and way too much teen angst. For me, this is a definite "don't waste your time." I don't know the original story but it also doesn't help that it is mired in early 2000s technology as the focal point of the story. There just isn't anything to hang a modern audiences hat on so to speak

31. The Birds (4k)

The Birds looks pretty great on 4k but it does show the limitations of blue-screen pretty evidently compared to previous releases. Still, it is somewhat frightening if you can look past that (and it certainly isn't bad like Birdemic is bad), but it's the iconic final scene (riffed in a Simpsons episode for sure though I can't remember exactly which one) that keeps me coming back to this film.

32. The Birds II: Land's End (Blu-ray)

I can't believe I am watching this a second time. The one time I decide to subscribe to Vinegar Syndrome for half a year and they have to include this awful made-for-TV never-should-have-been-made Hitchcock sequel. Honestly, if you had to do a sequel, wouldn't it be better as a post-apocalyptic scenario which is the vibe I've always gotten at the end of the first movie. But a tepid rehash where you can barely even get Tippi Hedren to join and not even as the same character. But this is also the time period that saw The Omen IV and Psycho IV tv movies, neither of which were any good either - is there a cycle for the raping and pillaging of beloved properties for nefarious television purposes?

33. The Amityville Horror (4k)

What gets me about this movie really is the True-Crime realism of the murder flashbacks, especially involving the children. This movie really does have some chilling parts to it, kind of pairs up well with Burnt Offerings from the 70s I think. Even though it feels like this type of movie should be kind of silly, some of these examples from the 70s seem way more gritty and frightening than they probably have any right to be.

October 9th

34. The Funhouse (4k)

Found this one took what seemed to be an enormously long time to really get into the action after the opening scene - pacing very off. I think The Funhouse seemed like Tobe Hooper was trying to make the crossover between indie horror films and mainstream by pulling together pieces of other films. But the climax of the film still seemed like Hooper's best 70s stuff.

35. The Gate (Shudder)

One thing about the 80s I miss is the use of stop-motion animation in horrific scenes whether it is Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Evil Dead, Poltergeist or The Gate. It obviously wasn't realistic but it's such a cool artform unto itself that I always like movies that use it to its fullest extent. Overall, I really liked The Gate, i was a lot of fun and felt like it fits right in with the best of the 80s horror.

36. Goodnight, Mommy (2022) (Amazon Prime)

I saw the original when it came out on streaming a few years ago, but couldn't remember what bugged me about it at the time. I just didn't think as much of it as everyone else, but forgot why. Watching the remake tonight, unnecesary as it is, I remembered why I still don't like this film. It's so-called twist isn't a surprise at all if you're familiar with Thomas Tryon. I don't want to be too explicit lest I spoil it for someone else but a certain film from the 70s was far more effective to me and is one of my favorite horror films. It doesn't help that this movie isn't really all that great at keeping the tension at the right levels or of handling the psychological aspects of the story. Go watch the original or, if you can, go watch a stack of horror from the 70s - you'll eventually come upon the one I mean.

37. Werewolf By Night (Disney Plus)

Not much I want to write here. Left me cold and empty like pretty much every MCU streaming show. I've tried to keep up with MCU Phase 4 'stuff' but, while I ended up enjoying a lot of what they did with the MCU Universe before, I think I'm out of their target demo now. Perhaps the show was trying too hard to be artistic rather than just being a good horror story. Hope others liked it!

October 10th
38. The Hunger (HBO Max)

Now THIS is an artsy horror movie....felt like I was watching a cross between a Bauhaus and Human League video the whole time. Couldn't believe this was Tony Scott directing here. I'm not overly sure if I liked it overall but I liked it trying to be elevated horror before that was a thing. Besides, it had David Bowie in it.

39. Return to Salem's Lot (HBO Max)

I thought this one was goofy but still creepy. I liked the vampire effects towards the end. Having all the vampire kids was interesting though they never attained the sheet terror of the vampire brother scraping his nails against the window in the first Salem's Lot. There was so much out in the open about the vampires that there really wasn't all that terror - it was like the vampires had been commoditized in a way, just didn't seem like anyone was all that frightened of them really. The son screaming obscenities at his dad in his squeaky voice was pretty bizarre though.....and without any demonic 180 degree head possession needed either.

40. Vampire Circus (Arrow Player)

I just didn't care for this one all that much, found it kind of dull and lifeless for much of it. Maybe i'll try again another yaer.

41. The Legend of Hell House (DVD)

I've been dying to rewatch this one ever since seeing Roddy McDowell again in Fright Night. Just good classic haunted house fun....that just seemed to be a thing more in the 70s than at any other time. This one also feels much like an Amicus production to me which isn't a bad thing at all. Honestly though, the 'secret' of Hell House always seemed a bit anti-climactic to me and, if it weren't for Roddy McDowell (who strangely only gets second billing here), I might not return to it at all

October 11th
42. The Dreaming (blu-ray)

From Severin's folk-horror box set, this was one I rather enjoyed, more for the air of mystery and suspense than any actual plot - not sure I even paid that much attention to plot here. Much of the cinematography was surprisingly good, always enjoy some good Australian vistas.

43. Kodaicha (Blu-ray)

Perhaps less good Australian film than The Dreaming. I liked it but some parts felt a bit cheap on the jump scares and makeup which definitely impacted the effectiveness of the film.

44. Cat People (4k)

This remake only has some framework similarities to the Val Lewton original, but it does have Malcolm McDowell before he turned into Sting which is always great to see. The incest angle was super-creepy which I guess was the true horror of the piece. Looked absolutely great in 4k though.

October 12th
45. Chucky S02E02 (Youtube) / The 101 Scariest Horror Movie Moments of All Time S01E06 (Shudder)
46. Deadstream (Shudder)

I see Deadstream get a lot of praise and, maybe it's because I don't really like much in the Found footage genre, but I found it uneven with the main protagonist being very hard to stomach - kept reminding me of Zach Galliafinakis. There were definitely some very tense moments in the middle which I enjoyed and probably make the whole thing worth watching. The ending seemed a bit over the top and veered a bit too much towards comedy in a way that I thought kind of broke the whole immersion you're supposed to have in Found footage. I guess I said all that to say I'm conflicted on this one.

October 13th
47. The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror I/Treehouse of Horror II/Treehouse of Horror III/Treehouse of Horror IV (Disney+)
48. Rifftrax: The Grudge (Download)

I seem to recall this was a pretty early Rifftrax so not as funny as I would have liked. But the American remake of The Grudge is awefully hard to stomach let alone make funny. I haven't watched a lot of J-horror remakes but it seems odd it would be so very bad considering it had the same director as the Japanese version. Perhaps J-horror doesn't really translate?

49. Dog Soldiers (4k)

I admit I was a bit too distracted when I watched this, things going on at work. But I had a little bit of trouble getting into the military plot and parts of it were just a bit too visceral for me. Intestines hanging out and being shoved back in is a bit too ghoulish for me overall.

October 14th
50. The Lamp (Blu-ray)

Nifty low budget horror based on Aladdin's lamp essentially. Plenty of gore effects, not so great looking Djinn, but pretty enjoyable if you don't mind the unpolished look.

51. Love Brides of the Blood Mummy (Blu-ray)

I can kind of see why this one was never on home release until Mondo Macabro rescued it. It's just soft core porn with some guy wearing an ancient Egyptian tunic and headress. Plenty of rape, a little bit of atmosphere, but probably not rewatchable all that much.

52. The Fog (4k)

Not really much new to say here. I enjoy a lot about this film although it's not really all that gory. I don't watch it as much as some of Carpenter's other early films though. There are just so many great ones to pull off the shelf.

October 15th
53. Queer Fear Ep 1/Ep 2 (Shudder)
54. Evil Dead (2013) (4k)

I really like the Evil Dead reboot movie. It's more straight edged non-stop horror, much like the first Evil Dead. It isn't scene for scene boring remake but it does pay homage to some key scenes from the original. During the final climax with Mia, my heart is firmly in my chest. One of the few remakes I think holds up well to the standards of the series as a whole and a movie I actually find thrilling. As much as I liked the Ash Vs the Evil Dead series, I still would have liked the movie that brought the two threads of this story together with Mia and Ash that was rumored just after release. Probably too late for that by far now and I certainly would like to see a continuation of what was happening at the end of the show if that's what the new movie is going to be perhaps. I couldn't be happier with the amount of Evil Dead content that we've gotten in the last 10 years.

55. Alligator (4k)

You know, my mom told me all through my childhood how scary this movie was but I had never seen it until now. I guess it was built up in my mind as something more, but it really wasn't particularly scary or realistic and the acting was tv movie level I'd say. Just didn't do anything for me at all.

October 16th
56. Celia (Blu-ray)

This folk-horror was way more drama and not much folk-horror like i figured it would be from the first scene where the schoolteacher was reading the story of The Hobyahs. I have often wondered if I'm the only weird American whose dad read that story to him as a kid - he had an old reader from when he was growing up in Georgia that had the story in it. It's a completely screwed up story to read to a kid but it has stuck with me for 40 years. I once told my wife the story and all I have to do is mention Little Dog Turpie and she knows what I'm talking about - it's that kind of story. So I was really expecting something horrific to take place throughout but it never really did. Felt this one was a waste if you're looking for true folk-horror.

57. Hostel (HBO Max)

I've put off watching this one for years and years but finally did since it's leaving HBO Max, no doubt to show up on some other streaming service right away anyway. The idea of backpacking into old Europe and turning the wrong corner is a deep rooted fear for some reason and this film kind of makes good use of that. But, on the other hand, I felt like the trio of protagonists were just plain dumb and should have been better at situational awareness from the start. The torture porn part wasn't really as bad as I expected although it was a bit hard to watch at times. But, in the end, it just wasn't a very well put together movie in my opinion. Won't watch any sequels.

58. Alison's Birthday (Blu-ray)

Sort of Rosemary's Baby/Hereditary set in Australia. Not bad - could have used Norman J Warren touch though

59. The House (Netflix)

More creepy and unsettling than truly horrific but that's what you want out of stop-motion anthologies isn't it?

60. Horror High (Blu-ray)

I felt like I was watching a refugee from a 50s high school PSA movie or something. Not bad for me, but the Jekyl and Hyde theme honestly kind of bored me. A little gore, but just not hat much.

61. We're All Going to the World's Fair (HBO Max)

Awful...I'm just glad I got the chance to TBYB this one as I had been considering buying it from VS partner label. Nothing...and I do mean nothing...happens in this movie.

October 17th
62. Old (HBO Max)

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha....<loses breath>.....Hahahahahahahahaha.

Sorry, folks, I thought I'd seen it all with M. Night awfulness. but I hadn't even come close before now.


63. Black Rainbow (Arrow Player)

I had a great time with this one. It had a lot of Elmer Gantry in it with the kind of revivalist Sister Sharon character - I really liked the uneasy feeling in each one of her communions with the dead. Never quite sure at first if she's a charlatan or the real thing. Not a horror movie per se even though IMDB says it is but it definitely has a creepy vibe running through it that makes it work for October.

October 18th
64. The Wicker Man: Theatrical Cut (1973)

Do I really need to talk very much about this one? It's probably the best and most well known folk horror movie, with Christopher Lee in a supporting role here...very creepy....very cool....I had to pay a bit of a premium to get the Imprint set but I think it was worth it for me. I'll just watch the theatrical cut right now but probably watch the director's cut and final cut sometime soon too.

65. Rifftrax: The Wicker Man (2006)

There are definitely some movies that capture lightning in a bottle and it just doesn't make a lot of sense to remake them. Even if you wanted to introduce The Wicker Man to a younger audience, Nicholas Cage - especially in 2006 - was not the actor to do it. But you do have to watch it for The Bees scene, worth it for that alone, but please don't let it chase you off of watching the good original.

66. Paranoiac (1963)

When I got this one as part of IBJoel's pre-October challenge, I took a look at my Universal Hammer Horror Collection and realized between Indicator and a few Scream Factory blu-rays I have gotten, I only need Kiss of the Vampire and Evil of Frankenstein and I can finally retire that one. I'd love to wait on Indicator but I'll see if I can pick up the Scream Factory ones with slipcover as they are very nice too. As to this one, I always enjoy these old psychological horror black & white ones so it was a given I'd enjoy it. It looks very good on blu-ray too so I'm especially pleased with seeing this one again.

October 19th
67. Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988)

Ok I have a bone to pick with horror/exploitation fandom. This movie is an AWFUL lot like Hobgoblins. That movie is reviled (I like it) and this is not; they both have ridiculous wish fulfillment, a very similar humorous style, and an overly cutesy puppet monster. What's the deal here?

68. Queer Fear Ep 3 (Shudder)/The 101 Scariest Horror Movie Moments of All Time S01E07 (Shudder)
69. The Stepfather (Shudder)

This is the original with Terry O'Quinn, not the remake. I knew from the opening scene I'd like this one. Terry plays the role completely unhinged and it works pretty well I think, never comes across as scenery chewing like some might. He's ok...until he's not...and the violence erupts so quickly and suddenly that it does make you tense up.

70. The Descent (Shudder)

I was on the fence about this one for the first half, wasn't sure I liked it or not, but the final half hour was pretty batshit insane. Some really good visuals and lighting in those cavernous shots. I'll probably want to watch it again sometime to see if it comes together better as a whole for me.

October 20th
71. Night of the Demons (Shudder)

I liked this one a lot. Could go well with The Evil Dead or Demons

October 21st
72. The Incredible Melting Man (4k)

I should have listened to my brain - I think I've only seen the MST3K episode once and I don't even remember if it was funny.
The episode, in 4k, not very funny


73. Chucky S02E03 (Syfy) / Queer Fear Ep 4 (Shudder)
74. Chopping Mall (Shudder)

You could definitely do a lot worse than ripping off the Daleks and imbuing the proceedings with a your other Vestron release sense of humor. The main problem was pacing but it was also short enough that it didn't bother me all that much. Pretty good time here.

75. The Slumber Party Massacre (Shudder)

Possible I missed it, but it didn't seem like there was any kind of motivation framework here for the driller killer. I must be watching one of the slashers when they'd run out of ideas.

October 22nd
76. Buried Alive (Blu-ray)

Man, I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing when I stumble across a movie from the 80s with Donald Pleasance hiding amongst the cast. I felt like what was missing was William Katt. It had Robert Vaughn which is a poor man's Robert Culp anyway.

77. The Horrible Sexy Vampire (Blu-ray)

This one was pretty dull. I love the idea of Mondo Macabro rescuing films sthat haven't seen a release since VHS days...but I'm thinking I may or may not appreciate these films - or they've just had a couple of crappy releases recently. Dull, dull, dull - would not recommend.

78. Rifftrax: Halloween (Download)

I wanted to watch the 4k, my wife wanted to watch the Rifftrax since she doesn't really like horror - so we watched the Rifftrax. So much missing detail, that's the real horrorshow here. Although it was funny, I don't always like them using good movies back in the day.

79. Rifftrax: The Island of Dr. Moreau (Download)

We saw this when it came out in the theater. I had forgotten a lot of the horror like Monkey Fetus guy, or the bad hatwear. There's just no lipstick you can put on this pig to make it watchable.

80. The Other Side of the Mirror (Blu-ray)
81. Return of the Living Dead (4k)

I finally saw ROTLD when it came out on DVD and I've owned it on DVD, Scream Factory blu-ray, and now Scream Factory 4k. I just love this movie and it is my favorite zombie film followed by Train to Busan. ROTLD is very funny, plenty of gore and bodily fluids, great animatronics work, a Punk sensibility, nudity, and a great soundtrack. If you haven't seen it, this is the best time to do it.

82. The Evil Dead (original) (Blu-ray)

October 23rd

83. The Evil Dead II (Blu-ray)
84. Army of Darkness (4k)
85. A Haunted Turkish Bathhouse (Blu-ray)

93. La Llorona (Blu-ray)
94. Angel Heart (4k)
95. Godzilla, King of the Monsters (4k)

October 26th

96. Wilczyca (Blu-ray)
97. Casper (DVD)

I know, I know. This probably should be in the category of 'guilty pleasure' - I remember seeing this when it came out in theaters and that comes from someone who hated the comics growing up. And you have to deal with BIll Pullman and some questionable special effects. But I just find Casper's back story so tragic and his hopeless affection for the living (and Christina Ricci in particular) so endearing. Yet still it's perfect as we get closer and closer to Halloween.

98. V/H/S/99 (Shudder)
99. Def By Temptation (Shudder)
100. Halloween III: Season of the Witch (4k)

September 30 (sundown)
1. Tales from the Crypt, S1
(1989) Episodes: The Man Who Was Death / And All Through the House / Dig That Cat... He's Real Gone / Only Sin Deep

October 1
1.5 Tales from the Crypt, S1 (1989) Episodes: Lover Come Hack to Me / Collection Completed
2. Tales from the Crypt: From Comic Books to Television (2004) Hour-long documentary included in the Special Features of the Tales From the Crypt, S1 DVD set.
3. Jug Face (2013) Totally under-the-radar gem of American Folk Horror.
4. Barbarian* (2022) What happens when stupid people make stupid decisions, that's the entire plot of the movie.

October 2
5. I Am a Ghost* (2012) A novel approach told from the point of view of the ghost. Low budget but lots of inventiveness.
6. Tales from the Crypt (1972) Not the TV series, but the Amicus film from the early 70s. Peter Cushing stars in one segment.
7. Murder Manual* (2020) Anthology film of very short segments.
7.5 Tales from the Crypt, S2 (1990) Episodes: Dead Right / The Switch

October 3
8. Tales from the Crypt, S2
(1990) Episodes: Cutting Cards / 'Til Death
9. The Forest (2016) More could have done with a story set in Japan's famous Suicide Forest, but still a decent film. Natalie Dormer stars and her beauty is worth the price of admission alone.
10. Walled In (2009) An interesting premise, though like The Forest, more could have been done. Very low-key but good.

October 4
11. The Raven
(2012) A killer replicates Poe's stories in real life, much more could have been done with this but still entertaining.
12. Vale Dos Esquecidos* (2022) Episodes: Adeus, Civilizaηao / Vale Sereno Brazilian series about a group of hikers who stumble upon a mysterious isolated community.
12.5 The Stand* (2020) Episode: The End
13. Tales From the Crypt, S2 (1990) Episodes: Three's a Crowd / The Thing From the Grave

October 5
14. Forget Me Not*
(2009) I already forgot it.
14.5 The Stand* (2020) Episode: Pocket Savior
15. Tales From the Crypt, S2 (1990) Episodes: The Sacrifice / For Crying Out Loud

October 6
16. The Reaping
(2007) Nicely done modern take on Biblical terror.
17. Deadly Blessing (1981) Sharon Stone (looking gorgeous) in an early role.

October 7 - NO MOVIES

October 8
18. Cell
(2016) A mediocre adaptation of one of Stephen King's mediocre books. You do the math.

October 9
19. Gargoyles
(1972)
20. Scream of the Wolf* (1974)
21. Legend of Sorrow Creek* (2007)
21.5. Tales From the Crypt, S2 (1990) Episodes: Korman's Kalamity / Lower Berth

October 10
22.5 I Am Omega*
(2007) Riding the coattails of Will Smith's I Am Legend, though unfortunately that movie wasn't that good to begin with.
23. The Stand* (2020) Episode: Blank Page
24. Below (2002) Slow-burn ghost story which benefits from its unusual location - a WWII submarine. The suspense from the real-life dangers of underwater warfare are enough to make this a gripping movie. Add to that the subtle supernatural angle and you get a highly original horror film.
24.5. Tales From the Crypt, S2 (1990) Episodes: Mute Witness to Murder / Television Terror

October 11
25. Vale Dos Esquecidos*
(2022) Episode: Substituto
26. **WILDCARD 1** The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) Much more of an action film but it does include Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde and a vampire as well as other borderline horror characters like the Invisible Man and Dorian Gray.
26.5. Tales From the Crypt, S2 (1990) Episodes: My Brother's Keeper / The Secret

October 12
27. Return to Boggy Creek*
(1977) This movie only lasts 57 minutes so I count it as half an entry.
28. Separation* (2021) A comic book artist's creations come to life amidst family drama. Entertaining.
29. Sleepy Hollow (1999) Highly stylized as is Tim Burton's way. A mixture of odd comedy, action and terror.
29.5 The Stand (2020) Episode: The House of the Dead
30. Tales From the Crypt, S3 (1991) Episodes: Loved to Death / Carrion Death

October 13
30.25 Sleepy Hollow - The Making of Sleepy Hollow,
Blu Ray special feature (30 m)
30.5 Tales From the Crypt, S3 (1991) Episode: The Trap
31.5 Summer of Fear* (1978)

October 14
32.5. Hell Night
(1981)

October 15
33.5. Blood From the Mummy's Tomb
(1981) Valerie Leon has the best boobs in all of Hammer Films, and yes, I know that's saying a lot but I stand by my statement.
34. Tales From the Crypt, S3 (1991) Episodes: Abra Cadaver / Top Billing

October 16
35. Tales From the Crypt, S3 (1991) Episodes: Dead Wait / The Reluctant Vampire / Easel Kill Ya / Undertaking Palor

October 17
36. Thirst (2009) Highly original Korean vampire film. Takes the tired reluctant vampire trope into new and interesting places. Great performances by the male and female leads.

October 18
37. Solstice (2007) Low-key ghost story that benefits by having teen leads that are not total idiots.

October 19
37.5 Vale Dos Esquecidos*
(2022) Episode: Vocκ Vai Entender um Dia
38.5. The Stand* (2020) Episodes: Fear and Loathing in New Vegas / The Vigil
39. Tales From the Crypt, S3 (1991) Episodes: Mournin' Mess / Split Second

October 20
40. Jeepers Creepers
(2001) See with commentary by writer-director Victor Salva where he tries to justify the ONE SCENE where the characters behave like total idiots and the entire film just looses all credibility, you know which part I mean. His explanation doesn't convince at all.
41. Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003) Inferior sequel.
42. Halloween Kills (2021) By the numbers middle chapter in the new trilogy. Jamie Lee Curtis literally does NOTHING in the film.
42. Halloween Ends* (2022) Unsatisfying and muddled end to the series (at least we hope it's the end).
42.5 Tales From the Crypt, S3 (1991) Episodes: Deadline / Spoiled

October 21
43. Tales From the Crypt, S3-4 (1991-2) Episodes: Yellow / None but the Lonely Heart

October 22

48. Tales From the Crypt, S4 (1992) Episodes: Seance / Beauty Rest

October 25
49. Twins of Evil*
(2011)
50. Uninvited* (1987) The girls in bikinis was the only thing that kept me watching.
50.25 Tales From the Crypt, S4 (1992) Episode: What's Cookin'

October 26
50.5
Tales From the Crypt, S4 (1992) Episode: The New Arrival
51. The Stand* (2020) Episode: The Walk
52. Psychic Killer* (1975) An ex con uses hus psychic powers to commit murders. Julie Adams from Creature from the Black Lagoon stars.
53. Willard* (1971) The horror element here is slight, it's really more the creepy factor of a young man and his rats.

October 27
54. Ben* (1972) Sequel to willard that at times feels like an after school special.
55. Prey for the Devil AKA The Devil's Light* (2022) Pretty damn good possession movie. Not entirely original but at least it doesn't make you feel like you've seen it all before.
55.5 Vale Dos Esquecidos* (2022) Episode: Mais Amor
56. Tales From the Crypt, S4 (1992) Episodes: Showdown / King of the Road

October 31
67. Moshari*

Comments
Spoiler:

October 01
01. The Bloody Judge (1970)* Streaming Amazon 6/10
Similar to other witch finder movies, a strict judge gets the hots for the sister of a women convicted of witchcraft. Meanwhile the Crown is threatened by invasion. Scenes, sometimes lengthy, of historical drama are interspaced with bits of bloody torture. Good cast with Howard Vernon especially effective as the executioner.
02. The Cellar (1988)* Blu-ray 6/10
Slightly above average monster movie about a creature created by a long dead Native American medicine man which is now terrorizing a family newly relocated to an isolated, run down house in the desert. Dad, played by Patrick Kilpatrick, is kind of a dick but often just feels out of place in the new environment. The creature is a mix of ooze and beast and works much better in quick glimpses but isn't bad enough to be distracting when seen for longer periods.
03. Count Dracula (1970)* 6.5/10
Christopher Lee stars as the Count although the mustache took a little getting used to for me. Very good adaptation and although I think the Lugosi version still wins in the atmosphere department, this one has a lot of nice little touches of creepiness. Herbert Lom is a little sedate as Van Helsing but the rest of the cast is spot on for their parts.
04. Circus of Horrors (1960)* 5/10
A rogue plastic surgeon takes over a circus and uses his skills to turn disfigured criminals into beautiful performers. Odd premise is sold well enough in the movie. Anton Diffring is good as the surgeon and the rest of the cast is adequate. There are a few bloody (for the 60's) deaths.

October 02
05. Uzumaki aka Spiral (2000)* Streaming Amazon 7/10
Japanese film about a small town whose inhabitants slowly become obsessed with spirals. Quickly gets into some pretty bizarre and creepy stuff, especially outrageous body transformations. Few explanations are offered but the story is so entertaining it doesn't matter much.
06. School of Death (1975)* Blu-ray 6/10
A school for wayward girls provides very special jobs when the students are ready to go out on their own. Absorbing with a disfigured mad scientist providing many of the scares. There's also a suspenseful mystery and a totally unexpected twist, although I'm not sure it all makes sense. Good period feel with many foggy nights.
07. Grave Secrets (1989)* Blu-ray 5.5/10
Starts out like a typical haunted house movie but there are some differences even early in the story. Weird stuff happens very quickly but the victim is very reluctant to provide much information. A fairly shocking revelation near the end leads to a kind of overblown finale. Things mostly do make sense in the end though.
08. Doomwatch (1972) 5/10
A scientist from an environmental organization goes to a remote island to take samples after an oil spill and discovers a more series issue affecting the inhabitants. Solid and sober British production more science fiction than horror but the makeup on many of the villagers is well done and a little creepy.

October 03
09. Archons (2018)* Streaming Tubi 6/10
A rock band and one of their female fans go on a canoe trip deep in the Canadian woods and gradually realize that something in the woods is following them. Is it real or the LSD? Good for the most part with several creepy scenes. The creatures look good even when seen for more than a second and the sound effects, especially those at night, heighten the atmosphere. The scenery is magnificent The plot is sometimes confusing though, in particular the ending which, if I interpreted it correctly, is a little disappointing.
10. Beast (2017)* Streaming Tubi 8/10
Intense and well acted story about a young woman named Moll, the somewhat disturbed daughter of a wealthy family, who takes up with a rough edged local who is a suspect in a series of child murders. Just who is the beast anyway? The woman's mother who often is a psychological bully, the guy, or even Moll? We do find out although some ambiguity remains. I usually don't mind Tubi ad breaks but they did become annoying in an intense movie like this one.
11. Popcorn (1991)* Blu-ray 5/10
Fun movie about a university film school that put on an all night sci-fi and horror film festival as a fund raiser. A disfigured killer is out for revenge on one of the students. The movies they show, supposedly from the 50's and 60's, were made for this film and two of the three are pretty good imitations. The first one however is too heavy handed.

October 04
12. Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror (2021)* (All the Haunts Be Ours) Blu-ray 7/10
Very interesting and long (over 3 hours) documentary. British and American films are covered in the first two hours while the rest of the world takes up the last hour plus. Full of background info and film clips, many of which I hadn't heard of before. I watched this in one sitting - not recommended. Breaking it into two or even three sessions would be better which would be easy to do since the film is broken up into chapters.
13. Tilbury (1987)* (All the Haunts Be Ours) Blu-ray 4/10
Short TV movie from Iceland about a woman who calls upon a traditional Icelandic beast during World War 2. Interesting, but something is just missing. It seems to be a satire both on rural Icelanders and the more formal British stationed on the island. Satire doesn't often work for me and it doesn't really here. Still, a few creepy scenes including part of a dance number (!) where the band plays the "Let's all go to the lobby" tune.
14. Lake of the Dead (1958) (All the Haunts Be Ours) Blu-ray 6/10
A group of friends visit a cabin near a mysterious lake only to find that the owner has disappeared. Slow buildup and a little talky but some creepy atmosphere does develop and the story becomes a murder mystery with elements of the supernatural. Nicely filmed with a solution that makes sense.

October 05
15. Commentary for Tilbury (????)* (All the Haunts Be Ours) Blu-ray 5/10
With the director, writer, and a film scholar. Not the best commentary but it does give some historical insight to what the film makers were doing. Iceland was actually occupied by the British in 1940 (followed by the Americans in 1941) and this brought Iceland into the modern world. The number of soldiers stationed there was almost 50% of the total population and some resentment was felt since many local women preferred the British to the local men. The dance number was meant as a surprise in a horror movie.
16. House of the Long Shadows (1975)* Blu-ray 6.5/10
A writer goes to an isolated mansion, unoccupied for 40 years, in order to write a novel in 24 hours. Things happen. This was a LOT of fun. The cast is full of horror greats, there are some suspenseful scenes, and plot twists had me smiling all the way through.
17. I Eat Your Skin (1975) (on I Drink Your Blood disc) Blu-ray 4.5/10
A writer and his publisher go to Voodoo Island to get background for a new novel but run afoul of a voodoo cult run by a mysterious masked figure. The hero is a dick but everything else is between kind of stupid and kind of cool.

October 06
18. Voodoo Island (1957) 6/10
Boris Karloff plays and acerbic skeptic goes to a remote island to find out what happened to an earlier expedition the only survivor of which acts as if in a trance. Pretty good. Karloff and Elisha Cook Jr. are the best parts of the cast and there are some neat looking carnivorous plants to add to the fun. The ending is interesting and not what I expected.
19. The Snake People aka Isle of the Snake People (1971) (Mill Creek Chilling Classics 50 Movie Pack) 5.5/10
A police official goes to a small island in order to bring some law and order bur runs afoul of a voodoo cult run by a mysterious masked figure. The set where the voodoo action takes place is good and there are lots of snakes used which add to the atmosphere, as do the cannibal women. Karloff plays a plantation owner. Maybe a little too long.
20. The Carpenter (1988)* Blu-ray 5/10
Wings Hauser is good as a tool wielding killer ghost who develops a rapport with a disturbed woman who is living in the house he is working on. Different and a little odd, mildly enjoyable.

October 07
21. The Blair Witch Project (1999) Streaming Amazon 4.5/10
I saw this when it first came out and didn't care for it much then and I wondered if my opinion changed. No, not at all. It wasn't the shaky cam as I initially thought, that wasn't that bed. It was the annoying characters, the huge amount of bickering (raw human emotion - not entertaining), and the very ambiguous ending (is Mike just taking a piss?). Maybe lazy writing? There are some eerie scenes in the woods and the night sounds are creepy so not a total waste.
22. Lifechanger (2018)* Streaming Amazon 5.5/10
A being who can become other people by absorbing their memories and life force thinks he is dying since he must change bodies more and more often. Interesting but not scary although there are some icky scenes, especially one near the end. The story is low key and kind of repetitious but the end, although somewhat open ended, makes up for it.
23. The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014)* Streaming Amazon 7.5/10
Wow, very intense. After a frightening enough start with details about Alzheimer's disease, the movie gradually becomes creepier and scarier in a well controlled way. I thought the build up was a little better than the climax but but that still was frightening, if a little standard. The supernatural mystery was developed in a satisfying way.
24. The Diabolical Axe (1965)* 6/10
Above average Santo movie has the masked man fighting his demon powered arch foe from the 1600's who has pursued him through the ages. An origin is offered for the Santo lineage and costume. The biggest drawback is that there is only one really powerful enemy to fight so we don't get to see Santo plow into a bunch of thugs. There is also time travel involved which gives the clues as to who the big bad really is.

October 08
25. Isolation (2005)* 5.5/10
Mutant killer cow fetuses rampage through a ramshackle farm. Well done but really nothing new. Effects are good but not special. Think Alien on a farm.
26. Hard Rock Zombies (1985)* Blu-ray 3.5/10
A bizarre family living in a redneck town kills a rock band who come back for revenge. This one just didn't work for me. The first part of the movie is tolerable. I liked the music and the actors who played the rock band and the robot like zombie shuffle they do after rising from the grave. The family members are too over the top for me and the town citizens are stupid. This gets worse until the last 20 or 30 minutes are a real chore to get through. None of the supposed humor is funny. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood.
27. Amityville: A New Generation (1993)* (Amityville The Cursed Collection) Blu-ray 6/10
A homeless man gives an old mirror to a struggling photographer - strange and deadly stuff follows. One of the better entries in the Amityville objects movies. The effects hold up and the acting is adequate with mostly likable characters who you actually get to know a little more than usual. There is a good mystery to solve with a reasonable solution. It kept me interested.

October 09
28. Curse of the Puppet Master (1998)* (Charles Band's Puppetmaster Collection) 5/10
The owner of a tourist attraction tries to make living puppets so he can add to the originals. OK entry in the series takes too long to get going but once it does there are a few bloody bits of puppet action. I thought the female lead was annoying and not very talented.
29. Ghostwatcher (2002)* 4/10
An agoraphobic woman's apartment suddenly becomes haunted so she turns to her best friend and the internet for help. The acting isn't terrible but is certainly below average and there is something off about the pacing. Actually nothing works really well in this film.
30. Berserker (1987)* Blu-ray 5/10
College students head to a cabin in the woods for a week of fun but quickly begin getting mauled and killed. Could it be the big old bear which is shown incessantly??? The story is really kind of dumb and the acting is no great shakes except for veterans Buck Flowers and John Goff but this still managed to entertain.
31. The Beast and the Magic Sword (1983)* Blu-ray 5.5/10
In the late 16th century werewolf Waldemar Daninsky goes to Japan searching for a cure to his affliction. We also see the source of the curse that plagued the Daninsky line. OK but too long and the feel is more of a samurai movie than a horror flick although the werewolf does tear out plenty of throats both civilian and samurai. There is a some nice atmosphere near the end as a Japanese scholar fights a variety of demons to get the magic sword. It's really odd to have samurai speaking Spanish.

October 10
32. Deadly Games: Dial Code Santa Claus (1989)* Blu-ray 7/10
An unstable man dressed as Santa invades a wealthy boy's mansion on Christmas Eve. I really liked this. Great characters with an especially nice chemistry between Tommy and his grandpa. A huge mansion makes for an interesting setting, there are some really suspense scenes with bits of bloody mayhem, and a somewhat ambiguous villain. I've never seen Home Alone but I can't imagine liking it better than this.
33. Candyman (1992) 7.5/10
A graduate student doing a thesis on urban legends stumbles upon a real supernatural horror. Very good movie. The characters are well drawn for the most part and the creepiness and suspense keep building. Tony Todd is excellent as Candyman whose origin is the result of racism which is shown to continue to the present day through the conditions in Cabrini-Green. The score by Philip Glass adds a lot to the experience, even though I'm not a particular fan of his.
34. Candyman (2021)* Streaming Amazon 4.5/10
A struggling painter, living in the gentrified area where the Cabrini-Green projects used to be, becomes obsessed with the Candyman legend. This reboot/sequel to the original has strong performances but has too many attempts at artiness which disrupt the flow of the story which is already somewhat confusing. There are strong ties to the original, perhaps too many, and the soundtrack is ugly and annoying at times. This is also more overtly political than the original.

October 11
35. Blood Vessel (2019)* Streaming Shudder 6/10
Near the end of WW2 survivors of a U-boat attack adrift on a life raft discover a deserted German warship which harbors something worse than being lost at sea. Nice tense scenes slowly reveal the truth of the abandoned ship. No big surprises but good looking creatures and well dressed sets in a well paces story.
36. Dark Tower (1987)* Blu-ray 4.5/10
Accidents and deaths begin to plague an office high rise still under construction and often seem to involve the architect. A fairly well known cast but the terror is tepid at best and when special effects are called for near the end they are not very good. The story is predictable and doesn't really make sense. Also, there are too many shots from below an elevator as it goes up and down.
37. Willard (1971)* Blu-ray 5/10
A meek misfit is taken advantage of and bossed around at home and at work. Basically friendless he gains some happiness when he takes some rats as pets. Good acting from all concerned, in particular Bruce Davison Willard but the story is a familiar one. It is a while until the rats really go into action and when they do it's not all that brutal. The end is satisfying though.
38. Time Walker (1982)* (Roger Corman's Cult Classics Vampires, Mummies & Monsters Collection) 5.5/10
A mummy is found in a hidden chamber in King Tut's tomb but when it is scheduled to be announce to the world the mummy has disappeared. Fun mummy movie with a science fiction twist. Some of the acting is of lesser quality and the effects are often cheesy but the mummy looks pretty good. To be continued pops up at the end but it never was.

October 12
39. We Are Still Here (2015) Streaming Amazon 7/10
After their son is killed in an accident, a couple moves to a long abandoned country house which turns out to have a frightening history. Good haunted house story with a solid cast. Strange things begin happening quickly but the build up to the exciting, blood soaked finale is well done. I liked that the countryside is almost a character with frequent cuts to outdoor scenes even during conversations which adds to the eerie feeling that is building up. I watched this a year ago and liked it better the second time around.
40. Beyond Dream's Door (1989)* (Home Grown Horrors Volume 1) Blu-ray 6/10
Strange but interesting story about a college student's nightmares which seem to become real and threaten the people trying to help him. Made by film students at The Ohio State University. The low budget is mainly seen in the creatures which looks cheesy at times but can also be pretty effective. The acting is decent and although the story can be confusing that's the nature of this kind of tale. Some impressively good gory kills. Worth a re-watch I think.
41. Winterbeast (1992)* (Home Grown Horrors Volume 1) Blu-ray 4/10
People start dying around a newly opened lodge in the mountains - could it be an old Native American legend come true? A mixed bag but overall I liked it. The plot is almost nonexistent and when it does pop up sometimes makes no sense. The acting is often just plain bad. The creatures save the movie though and there are a lot of them. Many are stop motion creations with usually good designs but varying levels of animation quality. The ones near the end are very well done. There are are also some live actions creature costumes which look fine even if the final winterbeast reminds me of a Japanese demon. The totem pole prop is absolutely great. Ultimately pretty good stuff.

October 13
42. What Have They Done to Your Daughters? (1974)* Blu-ray 7/10
Police investigate the suicide of a teenage girl and uncover an underaged prostitution racket. A black clad killer on a motorcycle tries to eliminate possible witnesses usually using a really big meat cleaver. Basically a very good police procedural with some bloody scenes and a very sordid crime handled soberly. A good cast as well.
43. Howling Village (2019)* Streaming Amazon 5/10
A young woman with some psychic abilities goes to a cursed spot looking for her two missing brothers who disappeared in that area. Just OK. Nothing was outstandingly scary or even very creepy. Major parts of the story were predictable but one or two did seem to come out of nowhere. Just didn't work that well for me.
44. Retro Puppet Master (1999)* (Charles Band's Puppetmaster Collection) 5/10
An origin story, showing how Toulon gained the secret of giving life to his puppets and his first run in with the god Sutekh. Nice to know how things got started but I didn't really care for the actor who played the young Toulon and although some were kind of cool looking I wasn't totally sold on the retro puppets. Otherwise a typical entry.

October 14
45. John Dies at the End (2012)* Streaming Amazon 7.5/10
Two slackers battle cosmic horrors that are seeping into our world. A huge amount of fun. Many of the gags are laugh out loud funny and the creatures look really good. The best part is the story which is smartly done with just a touch of surrealism now and then.
46. You'll Like My Mother (1972)* Blu-ray 6/10
A snowstorm traps a widowed pregnant women in the home of her slightly hostile mother-in-law but Mom isn't the biggest threat in the house. Good suspenseful thriller. Shot in a real mansion in Minnesota good use is made of the the rooms to create a tense, stifling atmosphere. Many scenes rely upon a newborn not making any noise - I don't know much about babies but I don't think that was very realistic.
47. Trouble Every Day (2001)* Streaming Shudder 5/10
During a honeymoon in Paris, the husband spends a lot of time looking for a doctor he once knew, hoping to find a cure for a sexual affliction he is suffering. The story feels a little disjointed at times but you can mostly figure out what's going on except for an unclear resolution. Artfully filmed with some very bloody scenes.
48. Backwoods Marcy (1972)* Blu-ray 5/10
Very low budget shot on video movie about a dim witted but arrogant businessman who is taken prisoner by a filthy, vicious woman who lives in a van in the woods. Basically a two person show which works due to the acting which is not the most polished but it is effective. Director and writer Dawn Murphy is particularly good as Marcy.

October 15
49. Dr. Jekyll's Dungeon of Death (1979)* Blu-ray 2/10
Dr. Jekyll's great grandson continues work on the serum and tests it on humans even though he is developing it for use on bulls. Just one of many things that don't make sense. This movie is awful. The runtime is taken up by two main things: a series of brutal fights (staged by real karate black belt holders) and the incessant overacting of the lead, James Mathers, which was so bad it actually wore me down after a while. Was this supposed to be a parody? If so it didn't work at that level either.
50. Psychos in Love (1987)* Blu-ray 5/10
Pleasant horror comedy about two serial killers who meet and fall in love. There are some funny parts, especially at the beginning, but for me the laughs became fewer as the movie went on. By the end, it seemed like they were trying too hard. There is a lot of blood and boobs which helped things stay interesting. The leads were quite likable.
51. Oasis of the Zombies (1982)* Blu-ray 4/10
Several groups of people try to find Nazi gold buried somewhere around a cursed oasis which is protected by Nazi zombies. A little slow overall and far from the most exciting zombie movie I've ever seen. The zombies look pretty good for the most part and the music during their few attacks adds a creepy feeling to the mix. They way they crawl out of the sand is neat at first but gets a bit tedious after a while.

October 16
52. Shin Godzilla (2016)* Blu-ray 6/10
Yet another Godzilla reboot. This one has an interesting and different take on the origin and development of the Big G. The story seems to spend more time on government bureaucracy and political maneuvering than on Godzilla. All of the various stages of Godzilla seem strangely stiff, except for the tail which almost has a life of its own, and the first stage even looks a little silly. Nice use of some of the music from older movies.
53. Baby Blood (1990)* Blu-ray 6/10
An eons old entity enters a woman's uterus and requires her to drink human blood for nourishment. An odd and bloody movie. The entity isn't malicious and even seems a bit naive. It just wants to be born.
54. Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)* (Blumhouse 8 Movie Horror Collection) 6/10
A widow and her two daughters who run a spiritualist racket decide to add an ouija board to the show with disastrous results. Pretty good haunting story is one of the spookier things I've seen this month but some things are very familiar. Interesting reason behind the haunting.

October 17
55. The Headless Horseman (1922)* Streaming Amazon 5/10
A superstitious school teacher gets scared out of town by The Headless Horseman. OK but the horrific elements are few but they are there. There is one great scene with a transparent headless horseman with skeletal hands and a tar and feathering sequence is pretty creepy as is the end. No musical accompaniment.
56. Whoever Slew Auntie Roo (1972)* 5/10
A lonely old woman who kept the mummified body of her young daughter who died accidentally years ago wants to adopt another daughter to keep her company. Kind of a twisted version of Hansel and Gretel. While the old woman has her problems so does the older brother of the girl she wants to adopt. He doesn't want his sister to be adopted without him, he has a very twisted imagination, and he is a liar and the thief. The sister isn't blameless either. There are no good guys in this fairy tale just a nice bit of fun.
57. Memorial Valley Massacre (1988)* Blu-ray 5.5/10
A new campground, in the middle of virgin forest. opens and campers soon begin dying horrible deaths. Never has the slasher fodder be filled with bigger a-holes and losers. Most of these people deserve to die. The killer is a feral child whose origin is revealed fairly early in the film. This is really a pretty dumb movie with mostly stupid and annoying characters but it also turned out to be entertaining in a trashy way.

October 18
58. Grave Encounters 2 (2012)* Streaming Shudder 4/10
A film student begins to think that the original film was real and not fiction and that he has discovered where the building is where the film was shot. Of course he must go there and film stuff. OK but nothing special. The end is good when things get kind of nutty but the journey to there is tedious at times.
59. Bride of Re-Animator (1990) Blu-ray 6/10
Herbert and Don use the serum to animate a body made up of parts from different corpses. Good sequel with nice sets and a strong, brooding performance by Jeffrey Combs as Herbert West. It's been a while since I've seen Re-Animator but this seems a little less bombastic that the original. Not a bad think in my book.
60. The Grave (1996)* Blu-ray 5/10
Two prisoners break out of jail in order to search for a fabulous treasure buried in a coffin with its owner. A crime drama with horror trappings (like being buried alive, grave robbing, and a creepy, hidden underground tomb) but in the context of a thriller. The characters are interesting and the plot is good with some nice twists. Tagged as Horror at AllMovie.com.

October 19
61. Freaks (1932) 7/10
A beautiful trapeze artist toys with the affections of a little person who is part of the circus freak show. I appreciate this movie more each time I watch it. When I first saw it in my college days it seems kind of silly but now I really like the often menacing atmosphere and the humanity of all of the members of the sideshow. The previously unviewed DVD I watched had a final scene, kind of an epilog, which I hadn't seen before.
62. Disconnected (1984)* Blu-ray 4/10
A woman who works in a video story starts to get crank phone calls at home which become more disturbing as they increase in frequency. The first hour of this low budget, first film for director Gorman Bechard makes sense and has a fairly entertaining if standard plot. The last half hour though depicts the main character's growing sense of desperation, possibly madness, but goes far too long and becomes tedious. The end didn't make any sense to me. Was this just filler because the original was too short???
63. Phone (2002)* 6.5/10
A reporter changes her phone number after getting threatening calls after exposing sex trafficking but the new number comes with a different set of problems. Good Korean movie keeps building tension and provides a few nifty scares. There's also a pretty good mystery with a solution that makes sense. Some parts seem familiar (ghostly girl with long black hair) but that didn't hurt my enjoyment.

October 20
64. Scared to Death (1947) Streaming Amazon 4/10
A corpse, formerly the unhappy wife of a doctor's son, tells the story of her death. Very muddled story. Many things that happen are never explained. There is a dumb cop, a hard bitten reporter, and his maybe dumb girlfriend. The corpse makes pointless comments which thankfully stop after a while. Even Lugosi can't help this one. I usually like movies from this era but this is a prime example of what can go wrong with them.
65. Vampyres (1974)* Blu-ray 6/10
Two female vampires lure unsuspecting men to their run down manor house for drinks and dinner. Complications arise when one of the pair becomes fond of her latest date. Different kind of vampires with far messier feeding habits. There is a menacing atmosphere but not in the traditional gothic mold. Erotic, bloody, and very interesting.
66. Twins of Evil (1971) Blu-ray 7/10
A bunch of black clad witch hunters runs around burning attractive and innocent young women while the real evil lives in nearby Karnstein Castle. Very good and sexy Hammer vampire film is well paced, has some great sets and solid performances all around. Peter Cushing is especially good (as usual) playing the leader of the witch hunters. The twins are his nieces who recently lost their parents. A different and successful take on Hammer vampires.

October 21
67. Opera (1987) Streaming Shudder 6/10
A young soprano suddenly becomes an opera star and becomes the victim of madman who forces her to watch him kill her friends. Very stylish and bloody but the absurdities of the semi-invulnerable killer bothered me more here than is other movies a silly plot twist at the end didn't help either. Also some of the English voice acting isn't very good. The killings are very creative though and overall it's a fun watch.
68. Frankenhooker (1990)* Streaming Shudder 5/10
An electrician and former medical student uses body parts from hookers to recreate his girlfriend who died in a tragic lawnmower accident. Silly fun and entertaining enough for what it is. I liked the garage lab and the nods to the lab in the Karloff Frankenstein. There are many movies on the "Favorites" list much harder to get through than this one.
69. The Last Drive-In (2019)* S:1 E:2 Streaming Shudder 8/10
Considered as S:4 E:2 on IMDB. Anyway the movie was Castle Freak and Barbara Crampton was a guest. Great to see Joe Bob again and a movie I really like as well. This was my first experience with The Last Drive-In and I was surprised at how many times the movie was interrupted. At least it was all Joe Bob and no commercials.

October 22
70. They Don't Cut the Grass Anymore (1985)* 3.5/10
Two hillbilly gardens from Texas don't like Northern rich folks so they go around killing them. That's the whole movie - no plot or story at all in this low budget epic. Lots of obviously fake gore with unidentifiable fake meat products being pulled from human bodies and fondled, mashed, and pulled apart. This is really gross at first but becomes tedious after a while. There are burst of heavy handed social commentary in between the killings and there are some laugh out loud moments that make the movie tolerable. Supposedly a satire on corporate culture at the time.
71. Stripped to Kill (1987)* Blu-ray 5/10
A police detective goes undercover as a stripper to solve a murder. Good murder mystery although the culprit is pretty easy to figure even with a clever twist. Lots of exotic dancing by real strippers and just the right touch of humor. The male lead is a little bit of a dick though.
72. Happy Hell Night (1992)* Blu-ray 5/10
A fraternity hazing prank goes bad and released a terror that has been confined for 25 years. The slasher looks creepy and there are some atmospheric scenes especially in and old tomb and outside a mental institution. The kills are just OK without a lot of variety since the same weapon is used for most of them. There are supernatural elements that work pretty well. Acting, dialog, and directing is about what you expect from an average slasher flick.
73. The Twin (2017)* Streaming Amazon 6/10
Above average TV movie (Lifetime!) with standard good twin/ bad twin plot. The acting is fine and the suspense is built nicely. The most horrific element is being stuck in a mental institution and trying to prove that you don't belong there along with having someone you care about suddenly change for the worse.

October 23
74. Boa aka New Alcatraz (2001)* Streaming Amazon 4/10
A giant prehistoric snake terrorizes a new maximum security prison in Antarctica. This is a stupid movie. The story is stupid, the characters are stupid with stupid problems, and even some of the sets are stupid. The monsters is cgi and just barely acceptable. Sometimes dumb can be fun, other times it's just dumb.
75. The Unhealer (2020)* Streaming Freevee 5.5/10
A healer with powers stolen from a Native American grave dies while doing a healing which transfers the powers to a bullied high school student. Revenge follows. Some clever stuff in this decent story. Lance Henriksen does a good job as the crusty, aging healer and the rest of the cast is adequate.
76. Halloween (2007) Blu-ray 6.5/10
You just can't help comparing this to the original. It's a pretty good movie. I like the first part, the background on Michael, the best even though I don't think it was really necessary in the first one. With all that detail though they never explain how MM became so powerful. After the escape his lurking around town is very well done, almost casually at times. Once the killing starts the film loses something. There are suspenseful moments but not the creepiness of the original. Also this Laurie isn't nearly as good as the original. She will never be a kick-ass grandma.

October 24
77. Trollhunter (2005)* Streaming Amazon 6/10
Found footage film about students who discover Norway's only troll hunter and the government conspiracy he's part of. Fun for a found footage film and the trolls look very good. There seemed to be less shaky cam than in some others but the film crew consists of standard characters. No big scares although there are some suspenseful scenes.
78. Meatball Machine (2007)* 6/10
Slightly strange Japanese SF/Horror movie about alien parasites who invade human bodies, turn them into cyborgs, and then fight each other for food. The makeup is good and there is quite a bit of blood and gore. There is also some romance in the story. There are also several shots of the parasites inside human bodies controlling them which look very good.
79. The Virgin of Nuremberg aka Horror Castle (1963)* 6/10
A woman visits her husband's ancestral castle for the first time and finds that a masked killer is roaming around. There is a torture museum and several secret doors and lots of time is spent poking around a cool looking dungeon. The action picks up near the end for a satisfying conclusion. There are still things that happen which are never explained.
80. Long Weekend (1978)* 7.5/10
A married couple, having serious marital problems, go to an isolated beach for a vacation but know nothing about respecting the wilderness. Great job of setting a subtle feeling of uneasiness almost immediately and having it slowly grow into a sense of eerie menace. Both characters are dim and self centered and the actors do a really good job. The cinematography and the sound add a huge amount to turning a beautiful beach into something frightening.

October 25
81. Dark Glasses (2022)* Streaming Shudder 6/10
A prostitute has a serious car accident while escaping from a serial killer. She is blinded and the only survivor from the other vehicle, a young boy, becomes her eyes. Nothing new here but better than I expected. All of the deaths are extremely bloody, the characters are likable, and the the final chase kept me on the edge of my seat although the final confrontation and revelation of the killer were a little less successful. The end was kind of sad.
82. Nightmare City (1980) 5/10
An unmarked military transport lands at an airport and out come zombies! Theses zombies move as fast as humans, can plan strategically, can use weapons and drive cars, and are almost invulnerable. They just can't talk. Lots of attacks as the military mucks around. I disliked the end a lot.
83. Noroi: The Curse (2005)* Streaming Shudder 7/10
The last video documentary of a supernatural investigator and the results of its production. Very good found footage movie and a little different form most of the fools running around with a camera plot. A slow burn but it's fascinating to put the pieces together along with the main character. There aren't many outright scares, just a slowly building feeling of dread. Very interesting and creepy.

October 26
84. Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989)* Streaming Shudder 6.5/10
After a hit and run accident the man who was driving begins turning into a metallic being. I've seen some strange movies this challenge but this is the most bizarre so far. Filmed in black and white, this is very much like experimental films that I've seen. The plot is murky at best. Tetsuo makes love, transforms, fights other metal people, and merges with his final opponent - I think. The images are often striking and although the effects sometimes feel dated they fit the overall atmosphere. A strangely compelling watch.
85. Puppet Master: The Legacy (2003)* (Charles Band's Puppetmaster Collection) 4/10
An assassin tracks down the current puppet master and wants to know the secrets of the puppets. Mostly scenes from all the previous movies in chronological story order interspaced with some poor acting and nonsense plot. Mildly entertaining.
86. AVH: Alien vs. Hunter (2007)* (6-Movie Sci-Fi vs. Horror) 3.5/10
A guy who looks like a walking fire hydrant hunts a part spider, part praying mantis, part whatever thing in a forest around a small town. The characters are all pretty darned stupid and they constantly show this in their actions. Even the local hunter and his militia friends are dim. They also bicker a lot, especially early in the movie. The big twist at the end is really stupid. The spider thing is cool looking and there is a little suspense as some of the characters make their way through some tunnels. Acting is below average.

October 27
87. Spring (2014)* Streaming Shudder 6/10
After finding out that he's wanted by the police after a fight he had on the day of his mother's funeral a young American goes to Italy for a change and meets a beautiful and mysterious woman who he falls in love with but she has a dark, ancient secret. Basically a love story but has some interesting and creepy horror aspects which become more apparent as the story goes on.
88. Odd Thomas (2013)* Streaming Amazon 7.5/10
A man with psychic powers, including the ability to see dead people, fights against evil in a small desert community. A really good movie. Odd Thomas is a great character played to perfection by Anton Yelchin. There aren't many scares but the story is funny, well paced, suspenseful, and touching with a good puzzle that must be solved and some witty dialog. The supporting cast is strong. The end is exciting with some small twists.
89. Dark Was the Night (2014)* Streaming Shudder 7/10
A sheriff, dealing with personal issues, must protect his small, isolated town from something coming out of the forest killing livestock and humans. Standard story line but very well done. The low key performance by Keven Durand was excellent and added to the slow buildup of tension and horror. The final confrontation was suspenseful and exciting. The only disappointment was with the creature design which looked fine in glimpses but didn't work for me when fully revealed.

October 28
90. V/H/S (2012)* Streaming Amazon 5.5/10
Found footage anthology film with five segments and the framework story. I'm sure getting tired of shaky cam this year which may be why I didn't care for the framework or first story. Things get better as the film goes on with each story a more entertaining than the last (even if there is still some shaky cam).
91. Spirits of the Dead (2007)* Blu-ray 6.5/10
Three Edgar Allan Poe stories, each done by a different well known European director. I liked all the stories but my favorite was "Toby Dammit by Fellini staring Terrance Stamp. The was the most visually interesting, quirky, and interesting of the three. Good cast all the way through.
92. Auntie Lee's Meat Pies (1992)* Blu-ray 5/10
Auntie Lee and her four gorgeous nieces make the best meat pies around and it's not just the special herbs and spices. OK, light hearted horror but I expected something funnier or more outrageous. The story is just there but there are some interesting and fun casting choices and the nieces sure are nice to look at.

October 29
93. Hiruko the Goblin aka Yτkai hantβ: Hiruko (1991)* Blu-ray 7/10
An archeologist and a high school student must seal a door to prevent a horde of goblins from escaping. Fun. Doesn't take itself too seriously at times but there is suspense and horror. The creatures look good even if the stop motion isn't always up to modern levels and the characters are likable if too familiar. Nice feeling of summertime in Japan.
94. Paranormal Activity 4 (2012)* (Paranormal Activity 6 Movie Collection) Blu-ray 4/10
A strange mother and child terrorize a suburban family. I liked the previous films but this one fell flat for me. All the usual tricks were there (maybe that was part of the problem) but weren't scary and the slow buildup was just tedious. Some of the characters were extraordinarily dim, even for this kind of movie. The final scene was surprising but made no sense in the context of this movie although perhaps it does for the series.
95. Footprints on the Moon (1975)* Streaming Shudder 5/10
A woman discovers that she has lost the last three days of her life and tries to find out what happened using a postcard she found in her trash. It's the journey not the destination. Interesting for the most part as the woman (very) slowly begins to piece things together and the scenery and sets are wonderful. The end lacks however. It's vague and any interpretation I can come up with isn't very satisfying.
96. Fatal Exam (1990)* (Home Grown Horrors Volume 1) Blu-ray 4.5/10
A group of students from a parapsychology course spend the weekend in a haunted house for their final project. Not really a good movie but fun if you're in the right mood. The two big problems are pacing and acting. The acting isn't awful but it is far from good. The film should have been cut by at least twenty minutes. There are chunks of exposition that go on way too long and some scenes seem like they'll never end. Thing do pick up near the end which is the best part of the movie. All this leads to many laugh out loud moments and I assume unintentional silliness.

October 30
97. Season of the Witch (1973)* Streaming Shudder 6/10
A bored and unfulfilled middle class housewife dabbles in witchcraft just out of curiosity but quickly gets deeper and deeper into the practice. No flashy effects or outright horror but a solid, interesting story that is well told with an unexpected conclusion. Written and directed by George Romero. There seem to be many versions of this movie, this is one of the shorter ones.
98. The Dark and the Wicked (2020)* Streaming Shudder 7.5/10
A brother and sister return to the farm where they grew up in order to help their mother take care of their dying father but they quickly sense something more is wrong with mom than grief. Very dark and very intense. The sense of wrongness begins quickly and keeps growing. No flash and few major effects but one of the creepiest things I've seen this challenge. Very effective soundtrack and eerie outdoor scenes.
99. Il demonio (1963)* Streaming Shudder 7/10
After a woman is rejected by her partner in a one night stand she places a curse on the man. That and other erratic behavior makes the rural town believe she is a witch and possessed. It's unclear whether it's possession or madness but the town reacts to demonic influences which lead to increasingly more serious actions. Very well done movie on all levels. The black and white photography is especially good.
100. The Vineyard (1989)* Blu-ray 4.5/10
A group of actors go to an island vineyard to audition for a movie the owner is financing but find more than they bargained for. Mashup (or mishmash) of many standard horror plots like the ancient being who needs human blood to stay young, human sacrifice during a rite, gory additives to a food product, and oh yeah, zombies. This all leads to a slightly below average movie with characters and henchmen who are equally stupid.
101. Giallothon (2018)* (On All the Colors of Giallo disk) Blu-ray 7/10
Over four hours of giallo trailers. Some of the ones near the beginning seem to be more pure crime films than giallo. A good number of the trailers have a kind of pseudo psychedelic flavor with odd colors or swirly patterns. Some are in English and some Italian or German. Sample the commentary by Kat Ellinger and a rewatch with that turned on will be worthwhile. Overall a strong set with many films I was unfamiliar with. Love those quirky titles.

October 31
102. Rest in Pieces (1987)* Blu-ray 5/10
A married couple from New York fly to Europe to take possession of the estate of a recently deceased aunt of the wife. As expected weird stuff start to happen almost immediately. Fresh variation on a standard haunted house story, not so much for the things that happen as for the reason this is all going on. A bit tongue in cheek. Most of the cast is decent except for the two leads. The husband is barely adequate and Loren Jean Vail who is drop dead gorgeous couldn't act if her life depended on it. But we do get to see a lot of her charms.
103. Trick or Treats (1982)* Streaming Shudder 5/10
A babysitter has to deal with a kid who loves magic tricks and practical jokes on Halloween night. Neither one knows that the boys father has escaped from a mental institution and is heading home for revenge. OK movie without much suspense or blood. It is fun mainly due to the string of trick or treaters that come to the door and some of the pranks the kid plays are kind of clever. The end is pretty good too. Sort of a Halloween rip off but the tone is much more light hearted.
104. The Mummy's Hand (1940) (The Mummy Complete Legacy Collection) Blu-ray 6/10
Babe's stupid humor didn't bother me as much this time around but the Mummy's eyes weren't as eerie as I remembered.
105. Horror Island (1941) (Universal Horror Classic Movie Archive) 4.5/10
A boat owner takes a group of people to an island to search for buried pirate treasure but they are opposed by a mysterious figure in a cloak and big hat known as The Phantom. Murder and silliness follow. There is a somewhat confusing mystery and the humor doesn't always work but The Phantom looks good. Basically an old dark house plot once they get to the island.
106. Man Made Monster (1941) (Universal Horror Classic Movie Archive) 6.5/10
A circus performer who survived a lightning strike is experimented on by two scientists, one kindly and one mad. Lon Chaney Jr. is very good as the survivor and Lionel Atwill does his usual fine job as the obsesses scientist. The subtle changes in Chaney's makeup as he becomes a slave to electricity are also well done. Not top rank Universal but a long time favorite of mine.
107. The Black Cat (1941) (Universal Horror Classic Movie Archive) 5/10
Greedy heirs gather in an old mansion on a dark and stormy night to await the death of their wealthy and cat loving aunt. Pretty well done old dark house movie with a decent mystery. The comic relief by Hugh Herbert can get annoying but Broderick Crawford is good in a light hearted and sympathetic role. Also features Bela Lugosi and Basil Rathbone with a small part for Alan Ladd.
108. Frankenstein (1931) (Frankenstein Complete Legacy Collection) Blu-ray 9/10
The original and my favorite. Lots of Universal atmosphere especially in the first half.
109. Teenage Frankenstein (1957) VHS 6/10
A scientist uses a dead body from a car wreck as the foundation for building a monster. Surprisingly good AIP schlock enhanced by Whit Bissel's sometimes tongue in check performance as the totally obsessed descendant of the Frankenstein line. The makeup for the creature is very good and we even have Phyllis Coates (Lois Lane) as the doctor's girlfriend and assistant. This is the slightly shorter British version of I Was a Teenage Frankenstein.

What the hell did I just watch?

The only good thing I can say about this is the dogs weren't hurt. It had it all - homophobia, slut shaming and the worst cop ever on film.

October 27
58. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) *
In which our girl, Stretch, learns an important life lesson: A man in cowboy hat may make a big showy entrance at the end but in the meantime you have to save your own damn self. Also chainsaws make everyone crazy.

October 30

72. Last Shift (2014) *
OK this was scary.

73. 100 Ghost Street: The Return of Richard Speck (2012) *

This movie is not for those of us who have claustrophobia.
Why anyone would want to connect with the ghost of a serial killer/rapist is beyond me.

74. Dream Home (2010) *
This woman had drive.
