I am glad you guys like that horror collection! Grave Encounters surprised me and I thought about Oinking the movie in the opening 10 minutes, but I let it ride and it was a good movie. Although YMMV.


I will be dusting off my Netflix account in October and using it from October on. I think I will give Splinter another viewing if they have it BD.

FYI Ti West's The Sacrament is on Netflix Instant. I liked it but only because I know people like the ones in the movie. Same for Red State.

I'll check it out. "Dark Space" also on NF WI is sort of a "cabin" movie set in the future when college kids go to another planet for spring break instead of the woods. Not great, not bad either.

Watched Honeymoon last night. It's a pretty creepy slow burn. Some here may like it but it's no gore fest.

Taking a closer look at my collection of horror movies, it turns out that I have more unwatched stuff than I thought I had even though I had an excellent run last October watching a lot of stuff for the first time.

Anyway, my focus at the moment is maybe taking a day to do an Exorcist movie marathon at some point in October during one of my days off. Exorcist The Complete Anthology is coming out on Blu-ray on September 23rd for a decent price and this will be a good thing for me because all of my movies in that series are on DVD and I am actually missing the second movie completely. Since there are five movies in that set and all of them are roughly about 2 hours each, I could probably do the whole marathon in about 12 hours (giving myself a 20 minute intermission between each movie and a 40 minute dinner break after the third movie). What I would do in the morning is put together a stew in the slow cooker and it would be ready by the time I finished the first three movies.

I'm thinking my time line might be something like this approximately...

9:00AM to 9:40AM: Get the ingredients together for the stew and cook up the beef in the frying pan

9:40AM to 11:40AM: Exorcist - The Beginning

12:00PM to 2:00PM: Dominion - Prequel to the Exorcist

2:20PM to 4:30PM: The Exorcist (1973) - this one is a little over 2 hours

5:10PM to 7:10PM: Exorcist II - The Heretic

7:30PM to 9:30PM: Exorcist III

What do you think? Does this sound like a good idea? I did something similar for the four Indiana Jones movies some time ago and it was fun. I would probably have some junk food like potato chips and a bit of pop, but would there also be some healthy snack ideas out there for a marathon of this nature?

Any feedback appreciated, thanks! I am kind of excited for this.

Cut out the long intermissions, it's not Lawrence of Arabia , all kidding aside you're fine. I would switch out the potato chips for skinny pop. it's lower calorie popcorn that actually tastes good.
Once you done the Exorcist's then you will ready to watch all four Phantasm films,after all it it will only be 9:30pm it's early .Have fun

LOL, that's awesome, thanks for the feedback! I don't know if Skinny Pop is available in my neck of the woods but I will keep an eye out for it now that you mention it. Failing that, I could always go the microwave popcorn route also.


And funny you should mention Phantasm, I actually do have the first movie in my collection and I have not seen it yet!

I am getting that same bundle next week! I will actually probably start watching those movies first in October! Stew sounds great and i love eating heartier meals this time of year!

Edit: Syfy is having an Omen movie series showing starting at 9am est

Excellent! I usually have Mondays and Tuesdays off work so I will probably do it on October 6 or 7. It is the Thanksgiving long weekend here in Canada on October 11, 12, and 13 so I don't think it would be feasible to do it then. I think the AMC channel starts their annual FearFest on October 13.

I only ever saw the first Omen movie, I should get to the rest of them.

On another note I rewatched Oculus last night and think I saw a different movie from the first time. Perhaps a third viewing will drive it home.

I am watching Omen II now and I forgot Lance Henrickson is in this movie!
