That does look good! I'm a sucker for foreign horror, and love orphanage/private school horror.

Hey guys/gals, there is a article here that lists some new Horror movies to watch in 2013. I commented that VHS2 should be in that list and I think you guys should comment what should be on that list.

Saw it and you're right to suggest VHS 2. I do like them putting Stoker on the list even though it's not a gory horror story,psychological horror, that it has. smile.gif

My sister in Wisconsin said they were due to get snow flurries the other day. Perhaps this will be a wet year. Remember the year the World Series got hit with snow? That was weird.

Got too cold too quick here in NJ. About to turn on the heat! At least no hurricanes in sight this Halloween.

That was quick. It doesn't pay to rent these things early.
Films released by Magnolia/ Magnet do go to Netflix quickly. They will also have their films on VOD sometimes while( and sometimes before) the films are in theaters.

I think one of us would be more qualified to do it next year. Any writers in the thread? Any nominations?

I've seen these so far in October:

 

Curse of Chucky

Inbred

Battle Royale

Silent Night

Jason X (Friday the 13th)

We Are What We Are

Midnight Meat Train

World War Z

Red Dawn 

Trick 'r Treat

 

I'd say my top three from this list are Curse of Chucky, Inbred, and Midnight Meat Train.

Shellter (2009) - Late as it was, I finally got around to watching our morning guy's foray into horror. Zoey (Cari Sanders) wakes up in an underground medical facility. She learns from the attending physician (William Tulin) that the planet has been decimated thanks to a virus. One by one, the doctor finds more survivors and brings them to the shelter. The good doctor not only seems to be looney tunes but insatiable as well. Slowly but surely, the body count rises. What's a good-looking holocaust survivor to do? The movie has:

Gratuitous injections.
Gratuitous sound effects.
Cannabalism.
Kabuki zombies.

I gave it two out of five bedpan zombies. I would have rated it lower but seeing your co-worker as a deranged doctor somehow makes it somewhat watchable. biggrin.gif

Curse of Chucky is really cool. One of my faves this month also.

28, The Children, Tom Shankland, 2008 First Time ViewIFCHD This movie has a couple of things going for it that makes it terrifying and sinister. First the setting is an English country side during the Christmas Holiday. Second it is about children that contract a bacteria/illness that causes them to go psycho on the parents. Some really good 'accidents' happen to the parents that aren't really paying attention to what these children are doing, which makes sense during the Holiday festivities. Of course the parents struggle with what is going on and never come to terms with it till it is too late. My only gripe was that I watched this on IFC and maybe it was the way the film was edited plus the commercials made the film 'choppy'. I need to rent this and watch it with out interruptions to see if it flows better. All in all a good film to watch for October.

3.5 Pint Sized Zombies





29, Jacob's Ladder, Adrian Lyne, 1990 DVD, I was thumbing throw my movie library and decided to put this movie on. I haven't seen it year and it was begging for another viewing. I actually seen this movie theatrically and it left a profound mark on my brain. This movie is a physiological/horror and it has a really good pace in this movie. Tim Robbins and Elizabeth Pena are perfect in this movie, as Tim plays a Vietnam vet struggling to go on with life after the loss of his son. Some really good wtf parts, along with scary surprises that will keep genre lovers engage in this remarkable film.

4.5 Head Shaking Zombies


Both of those trailers look great Oink and Kenobi! Music by Slash, right on!

If memory serves we worked with him on that list last year and he was very receptive to our input... obviously. Pretty solid list.

On the lighter side of "horror", my daughter's animation "Overly Sensitive Zombie Girl" continues with episode #5, a Halloween episode! She might take a break from animation after another episode or two, I think she's getting a little burned out on the idea.

I have my disagreements with some of those movies but mostly I like the list she has out there. It is cool that we can add our comments for those who want to dig a little deeper than those 10 movies, though.

I agree the list isn't that bad and I hope I wasn't coming off as obtuse or mean in that thread. But this thread is a one stop shop for any Horror movie watching, with anything from mild to wild.cool.gif
