Oh my God, The Pope’s Exorcist was bad. Why did none warn me - I thought it would just be mediocre but it really is one of the most ridiculous possession movies I think I have ever seen. I should have listened to my gut on this one

I am on that binge right now. Think I liked those movies more as a kid/teen than I do now. The actors, a lot of them are already dead/don't bring life to the screen. Amazing deaths and how it is caught on camera though.

So, I'll admit that my dog wears bow ties. She actually gets really excited when I put one on her. I've got a few Halloween ones. I'm probably going to be switching to another one later, so I thought I'd share her current cereal killer one. You might need to zoom in to see the tie very well.

The casts in these films are the very definition of disposable. These films are all about the spectacle.

That new VHS movie is def up there as one of the best viewings so far this month. That and When Evil Lurks, which is going to stream on Shudder at the end of the month. Well worth a month of subscription.

I'm glad we're getting a third season. I've enjoyed the first two seasons even though we're left with more questions after every episode.

I've been purposefully staying away from Netflix so I dont' have to see the trailer.

I just got the shipping notice yesterday.

As an aside, Amazon has the Universal Classic Monsters: Icons of Horror Collection [4K UHD] sets for ~$30 apiece. Not sure if that's a good deal.

Also want to throw a shout out to Halloween Radio Main | 343 days until Halloween! Every Halloween we make you scream!

5 different Halloween themed radio stations that are have some of the most variety I have heard anywhere.

You have the Main station, Kids, Atmosphere, Movies and Oldies. All are great!

That is actually a great deal. I might have jumped on it, but I may wait to see if the recently released special limited edition of all those films together in one set goes on sale.
Amazon.com: Universal Classic Monsters Limited Edition Collection - 4K Ultra HD + Digital [4K UHD] : Various, Various: Movies & TV Amazon.com: Universal Classic Monsters Limited Edition Collection - 4K Ultra HD + Digital [4K UHD] : Various, Various: Movies & TV

Three things are assured in this life: Death, Taxes and that the Universal Monster movies will be released and price dropped for infinity!

In other movie monster deals - the Blu-ray main Hammer Monster Collection set is 50% off for $17.99. I want to bite but you just know a 4K UHD set is likely coming soon.
Amazon.com: Hammer Horror 8-Film Collection [Blu-ray] : Peter Cushing, Clifford Evans, Herbert Lom, Janette Scott, David Knight, Freda Jackson, Oliver Reed, Heather Sears, Yvonne Romain, Noel Willman, Peter Woodthorpe, Moira Redmond, Martita Hunt, Thorley Walters, Patrick Allen, Edward de Souza, Sheila Burrell, Duncan Lamont, Jennie Linden, Yvonne Monlaur, Catherine Feller, Michael Gough, Jennifer Daniel, Alexander Davion, Sandor Eles, Brenda Bruce, Barry Warren, Liliane Brousse, Terence Fisher, Peter Graham Scott, Freddie Francis, Don Sharp, Anthony Hinds, John Temple-Smith, Jimmy Sangster, Jimmy Sangster, John Elder, Peter Bryan, Edward Percy: Movies & TV Amazon.com: Hammer Horror 8-Film Collection [Blu-ray] : Peter Cushing, Clifford Evans, Herbert Lom, Janette Scott, David Knight, Freda Jackson, Oliver Reed, Heather Sears, Yvonne Romain, Noel Willman, Peter Woodthorpe, Moira Redmond, Martita Hunt, Thorley Walters, Patrick Allen, Edward de Souza, Sheila Burrell, Duncan Lamont, Jennie Linden, Yvonne Monlaur, Catherine Feller, Michael Gough, Jennifer Daniel, Alexander Davion, Sandor Eles, Brenda Bruce, Barry Warren, Liliane Brousse, Terence Fisher, Peter Graham Scott, Freddie Francis, Don Sharp, Anthony Hinds, John Temple-Smith, Jimmy Sangster, Jimmy Sangster, John Elder, Peter Bryan, Edward Percy: Movies & TV

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 19th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31)

I've been having a great challenge so far. Unfortunately, I have so many activities with family and friends that I'm not able to get to everything that I would like. However, I am getting together with friends to watch Frankensteinand Young Frankenstein. They've not seen either so I'm extremely excited to share them. So far my favorite new watches have been The Witch and Malignant. The former was beautifully produced and acted, and the latter is just bonkers. I went into without knowing much which was the perfect way to see it.

I've watched a couple of films from Severin's giant folk horror box set which has been fun. Tilbury wasn't for me, but Lake of the Dead was great. I'm showing my Movie Night group Eyes of Fire later this month.

Also, if any of y'all are board game people, I played My Father's Work, a storytelling game with app support in which players are cousins who come to their family's crumbling estate to perform experiments that may drive the local townsfolk into a bloodthirsty mob. You play through three generations of the same family which is thematically fun. Players are presented different options during the game, and the story progresses based on your choices. We ended up in an Ozploitation-esque hellscape by the end of our game. It was a great time!

You need to watch Son of Frankenstein with them... Brooks' lifted entire sections, including dialog, directly from that film for Young Frankenstein.

Good idea. Hmmm... perhaps we should double-feature Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein this week, and then we can do Son of Frankenstein and Young Frankenstein next week. That would mean pushing The Mummy and The Wolf Man to the last full week which is one more week than my friends agreed to, but I'll bet I can swing it! God, I love Universal Horror movies. I've been loving the posters Spiderbite has been sharing. So beautiful!

Absolutely go that route, especially considering all 3 are pivotal viewings to truly appreciate what Brooks did with Young Frankenstein. I've been trying to do the exact same thing with my 2 oldest granddaughters (age 12 & 16) this year since they expressed an interest in joining me for some horror movie viewings. Their mom (my daughter, who's a Halloween baby) keeps dumping chores on them slowing things down... guess I need to have a "talk" with her... lol

Trying something different this year. Going through all the Hammer Horror and Thriller flicks in order. Realized I'd only seen a couple. My only goal is to get through all of them and I have about 20 left for the first run of the studio in 50s-70s.

Yeah, I really dug 85. It's really odd how it seems to be flying under the radar unlike last year's, despite getting pretty favorable reviews. Heard good things on the COTD podcast for the latter, too. Shudder seems to be stepping it up this month after a lack of the usual content lately.

And another 30-Day Free Trial for Shudder: HORRORHOUND

Reminder the first Joe Bob special of two is tonight. I don't think I've ever watched Halloween outside of the actual day.

So Shudder foolishly aired an edited-for-content censored version of Halloween on the Joe Bob special. Just a head's up to those waiting for the on demand version when it drops Sunday. Hopefully it was just a mistake that will be rectified by then.

I haven't ever watched a Joe Bob special. What does he do? Break in and out on "commercial" breaks and do skits or interviews like Elvira used to do? Or does he just do an intro and outro? Or commentary during the movie?

Just curious. I never have found him to be a very entertaining person in the few commentaries and interviews I have seen, so I haven't tried watching one of his shows or specials. I know people love him but he just never has done anything for me. Maybe I need to give one of his specials a chance. Any certain one you would recommend? I have AMC+ so I am assuming they have his old stuff for streaming as well.
