The wife and I both really enjoyed Orphan last night. Great take on the evil child thing and it had us immersed in it within minutes!
I have several movies that I wanted to see and will be watching throughout Nov before the Christmas movies start.
Yet to be watched:
The Company of Wolves
Night of the Creeps
My completed list is here... what a great time! Thanks again to everyone for making this so fun!
October 2009 - list of 31
1. Something Wicked This Way Comes 3 1/2 stars... good fun!
2. Wrong Turn 3 1/2 stars; Predictable redneck cannibal slasher but I liked it!
3. Saw 4 stars - very original with a great story
4. A Haunting in Connecticut 3 1/2 stars - Better than expected with some pretty creepy scenes but still pretty predictable
5. Trick 'R Treat 4 stars, instant new classic campy and fun, didn't find much to dislike
6. The Shinning 4 stars... classic!
7. The Midnight Meat Train 4 stars - great movie with a story that gets better as it goes
8. Poltergeist 5 stars - an all time favorite, not too scary anymore but very well done and a must for Halloween
9. Pontypool 4 stars - excellent, original, and creative. An asset to the zombie genre and a must see for any horror fan.
10. Session 9 5 stars - Disturbing with a real creepy backdrop that can't be made on a movie set.
11. Paranormal Activity 3 1/2 stars - overhyped but still pretty damn creepy and worth seeing (probably best viewed at home)
12. Creepshow 4 stars - original and fun, excellent score and the monster in the crate will never get old!
13. The Descent 5 stars, one of the scariest creature flicks in the past ten years.. easy.
14. The Thing (1982) 5 stars - A perfect horror horror movie... pretty much says it all.
15. Audition 5 stars - disturbing and well worth waiting for the last 15 minutes!
16. Deadgirl sick and disturbing, not horror but very original if you can stomach it
17. Saw III 3 1/2 stars - My second favorite in the series
18. Saw II 3 stars - enjoyed this one more the second time around for the story but the buff guys is just too damn annoying!
19. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) 4 stars - One of the best remakes, amazing PQ on blu and great featurette on the read deal.
20. House on Haunted Hill (remake 1999) 3 stars - a prefect example of a fantastic remake screwed by cheesy CGI in the las 20 min.
21. Sweeney Todd 5 stars - In my top 10 (maybe 5) of all time favorite films... simply brilliant!
22. Ravenous 2 stars - not a bad movie but it just didn't do it for me
23. The Relic 4 stars - Excellent creature feature with an original story and well done effects from the creators of T2 and Aliens.
24. The Girl Next Door 4 stars - exceptionally disturbing but I wouldn't necessarily place it in the horror genre
25. An American Werewolf in London 5 stars - easily the greatest werewolf movie ever made and one of the all time best horror films.
26. Interview With A Vampire 5 stars, probably the best vampire movie ever made imo
27. The Hills Run Red - 3 stars - A couple good plots twists and some solid slasher moments
28. Orphan 4 stars - great movie with a nice twist towards the ends, very enjoyable take on the evil child story
29. The Entity - 2 1/2 stars - Not poorly done but the story did not really hold my interest
30. Suspiria - 5 stars - Very well done, good story, good audio track, and excellent backdrop
31. Mother of Tears 2 1/2 stars - This one had an excellent story but the acting was so poor it could not be saved.
31. Halloween (1978) 5 stars - Campy, classic, slasher bedrock, what's not to love?
"Twilight Zone The Movie: Horror At 20,000 Feet" 5 stars - I only watched this short out of the whole movie but it is fantastic, creepy, and wll done! Highly recommended!
Of the movies watched for the first time my favorites were Suspiria and Pontypool.
