Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 9th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (Oct 1-31) P

A little off topic, but there are some horror examples. The BBC has a cool vehicle identification quiz on their site. I went 61-16.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 9th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (Oct 1-31) P

I normally get around 80, but had only 14 this year because it poured down rain. Gonna be eating the leftovers for months!

Re: "The Nightmare Before Christmas" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day

Maybe it's because I like Halloween so much, but I have always liked this one. I watch it every year on Halloween the way some people watch It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. I particularly like...

Re: "The Possession" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 30

5. When you want to save a little on the cgi budget, shoot through all the drinking glasses on the counter.

6. Get the iPhone 12 flash LED light when searching large open spaces.

7. Don't make...

Re: "Pontypool" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 29

I think they discovered what several of the trigger words were, so they decided to find replacements so that people wouldn't have to speak the triggers in the future. Or something like that.

Or...

Re: "Pontypool" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 29

I was thinking the same thing. The "American virus" is spreading and sickening the world. That message was about as subtle as the Star Wars prequels preclaiming Liberty was dying to thunderous...

Re: "Grave Encounters" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 28

This, and other movies like it, just goes to show you that you don't need some big, elaborate set up or budget to scare people. All you have to do is to tap into people's primal fears, such as the...

Re: "In Their Skin" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 27

I read that in several reviews on other sites. Great opening that just couldn't properly close.

Re: "In Their Skin" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 27

Granted. But, here is a review of the film from a site that many of you have heard of that sums it up well for me:

"Final Thoughts:
The premise of In Their Skin isn't where it falters, since the...

Re: "In Their Skin" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 27

But, most of it is when people are doing STUPID stuff. The dad just heard someone shoot the dog, so he LEAVES THE SECURITY OF THE HOUSE, IN THE DARK, WITH A KNIFE to NEGOTIATE? :rimshot: Did he...

Re: "In Their Skin" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 27

I was referencing the parts of the plot you mentioned about the child. They played it SO HARD like the beginning of Anitchrist, and then it just seemed to not play any role once The Strangers parts...

Re: "In Their Skin" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 27

Well, somebody liked Antichrist and The Strangers enough to blend the two together, resulting in something that gets a 5.2/10 on IMDB and a 17/100 from viewers on Rotten Tomatoes. THIS is what I was...

Re: "Psycho III" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 26

Perkins does a great job portraying Norman's wide range of mental instability. I also think he did a good job of directing the film as well. I really liked how he occasionally used a little...

Re: "Mystery of the Wax Museum" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 25

This was a good movie with some really creepy stuff going on. It also shows you that while Universal was ruling the world at the time with its monsters, that the other studios, like WB here, could...

Re: "Scream" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 24

I remember it was fun because it was a horror movie about how horror movies worked. It was similar to how Last Action Hero played up all the action movie references, but without the true parody. ...

Re: "Blood Diner" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 23

I felt the same thing. Though it NEVER directly references Blood Feast, and has no dedication of any kind in the credits, there is obviously a connection. The boys "Egyptian" uncle's tombstone says...

Re: "The Devil's Carnival" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 22

Ok, if Baz Luhrmann and Tim Burton were at IHOP at 3AM after an all night crystal meth binge, this is the movie they dream up. I could give you "Six Hundred Sixty Six" reasons to skip this, but I...

Re: "Scanners II: The New Order" Reviews/Discussion - 2013 Horror Challenge: Day 21

And it's ironic how the baddie scanner ends up so "well done" in the end because he later becomes Raw.

Somebody will get it.
