I don't watch any TV except movies. Very rarely do I do regular TV stuff and on the weekends I stay up pretty late. Wife and kid go to sleep at 8pm most nights so it's not too hard to get them in. 16 hours of the weekend went to movies and I'll be fighting sleep at my desk in an hour or so.

Pandorum is a beautiful looking movie. Very demanding blacks. Triple feature of this, Desent, Alien Vs Predator - Requiem and you will be squinting for weeks.

People outside of this forum don't appreciate the commitment, and sacrifice, we do to get in as many movies in October.

Still dealing with the worst s-storm of my life but trying to make time for my favorite time of year as well

The Hole - 2 1/2 basement zombies
I enjoyed this one more before the reveal played out at which point I felt a bit underwhelmed. Still a fun movie that felt a bit more classic non-R scary which was refreshing.

Cold Prey - 4 slasher zombies
I really liked this one, felt like what a slasher should be but just isn't anymore.

Hey guys, I've been keeping up with my movie viewing (just barely) but I haven't had time to write up the reviews. I'll keep 'em quick today

17. Cockneys Vs. Zombies (FTV)
A construction crew in London's rough-and-tumble East End release a zombie apocalypse from an ancient tomb, while two well-meaning but bumbling brothers attempt to rob a bank to save their grandfather's old folks home from the wrecking ball. Aside from occasional difficulties understanding what the cockneys were saying, this movie was a gore-riffic blast. My personal favorite scene was the old man in the walker being chased by a slowly staggering zombie. Rare movie that actually delivers on the promise of fun in the title.

4 out of 5 stars.





18. First Man Into Space (FTV)
The first man to fly into space is feared dead, but in fact has returned and has mutated into a lumpy, bloodthirsty monster. A little better than the usual by-the-numbers late 1950's story, with plenty of unintended laughs. Most hilarious part is the non-reaction of the military commander to the news of his brother's supposed death in space.

3 out of 5 stars.





19. Village of the Damned (1960)
The classic creepy smart kids film, where several mothers in a small English town simultaneously give birth to a race of super-smart kids with psychokinetic powers. Most viewers will remember the eerie glowing eye effects that are used any time the children use their mental powers, an effect that's still quite effective to this day. Journeyman actor George Sanders gives another great performance as the scientist that no one will listen to until it's too late. This film spawned decent sequels and remakes, but none have managed to live up to the original.

4 out of 5 stars.

I watched "Chasing the Devil" on Hulu+ last night. It's another indie "possession" film and not bad at all. Three and half protective amulets. Rachel Nichols fans might like to see "P2" which is also on Hulu+.

I saw Annabelle with my daughter last saturday, at the risk of sounding blasphemous, I think I liked it as much as The Conjuring. Some good scares for a PG13... And a strange thing happened during the movie, at the beginning I found the lead actress cute at best, and at the end I thought she was really really hot!

I thought it was also the perfect time to delve into Penny Dreadful so I blind bought the first season on Blu-ray. What a gorgeous (so to speak!) and well acted show! I literally can't wait for season 2, I have only 2 more episodes to watch. The Strain's producers should watch it just to compare to their version of "the Master" - and medidate

Hang in there!!

I liked Cold Prey as well. Nothing ground breaking but a good HARD edge to it.
Cold Prey two is not as good but still worth a look and has a similar feel.

Lol! One of my favorite funny scenes of all time. Cassic use of Shamblers and a senior in a walker. Actually, I enjoyed the way seniors were used in this and totally agree the movie lived up to the title!! How many times do we see an intriguing title and then it is not the movie the title suggests it be??

Last night I did Cabin Fever, Patient Zero 2014 (FTV) Bit of a mixed bag for me on this one. Some of the characters were convincing and some not. About the time I came to view the movie as more of a tongue and cheek entry the tone switched around to more typical 2014 horror. Still there was just enough here to make it a fairly enjoyable 90 minutes and Jilliam Murray is in the running for Horrorfest hottie for 2014.

This movie has -
Not very sexy, but funny, cat fight.
Lots of blood puking.
Lots of puss.
A scene that will "go down" as one of the more EWWWW, but funny, scenes I have viewed in a while.

Favorite line - "Jenny is not feeling well."

I've continued knocking movies off my list, but haven't had time to post reviews until now. It was quite the weekend fellas, as I was treated to some great horror that I hadn't seen before. Counting the movie I plan to watch tonight, I'm all caught up with my plan for 31 in 31...............

15. House of Dark Shadows (1970)- {2.5/5} Blu-ray (FTV) This one is a movie based on the gothic soap opera, Dark Shadows. Jonathan Frid plays Barnabas Collins, who is a vampire who had been mistakenly released from the coffin he was imprisoned in. He then searches for a cure for his affliction and attempts to find a bride to spend eternity with while at the same time feeding off the various inhabitants in the Collinswood mansion. To me, this movie was inconsistent. There were some really cool scenes with entertaining kills and great atmosphere but the day-for-night scenes were poorly done and the story was not cohesive. For example, several characters appeared in the movie without any sort of explanation of who they were. Even though these things may have been covered in the soap opera, it makes better sense to provide somewhat of a back story when creating the movie. Taking the good with the bad, it was an okay watch that may have me watching the sequel at some point in the future.




16. Visiting Hours (1982)- {4.25/5} Netflix Streaming (FTV) This slasher is about a misogynistic, serial killer who sets his sights on a female TV journalist who campaigns for women’s rights. It stars Michael Ironside as the killer and Lee Grant and Linda Purl as the female leads. William Shatner is also onboard in a supporting role. All of the acting was on point, but Michael Ironside definitely steals the show with his Shining-esque performance. He plays thepart of a psychotic killer to perfection as he slashes his way through various unsuspecting victims trying to get back to Deborah Ballin (Grant), who he had already critically wounded when he attacked her in her home. This movie was a nice little surprise as I was simply looking for something on Netflix to watch on Saturday morning. Despite my hatred for watching horror during the daytime, I had a great time with this flick. There were a number of great scenes with some genuinely tense and scary moments and even though it was entirely too easy for the killer to get away with what he was doing, I just didn’t care. This movie was too much fun to worry about the holes. Highly recommended folks!




17. Sleepy Hollow (1999)- {4.5/5} HD DVD First things first. This one is likely going to make it on my list to watch every October. Despite the great performances and fun overall story, this one is all about atmosphere. It absolutely oozes Halloween with all the amazing sets, cinematography and score thanks to Tim Burton and the crew. Depp’s hilarious quirkiness paired with Christopher Walken as the horseman and even Miranda Richardson as Lady Van Tassel make for an awesome adaptation of the Washington Irving story. There was some great well-placed humor in the script to go along with the entertaining decapitations and dark overall story. This is a repeat from Horrorfest 2008 and the decision was made to bump my rating up a full point. Not sure what I was thinking 6 years ago, but this is a wonderful movie that deserves to be on everyone’s short list when looking for movies to watch in October.



18. Afflicted (2013)- {4.5/5} Blu-ray (FTV) This one is another found footage movie detailing the travels of a man who is on a 1-year trek around the world. It just so happens that he recently found out that he has a brain abnormality that could prove to be lethal if he does not have immediate access to medical treatment if/when an emergency occurs. Of course, he goes on his quest anyway and he enlists his good friend Clif (and film enthusiast) to film the entire thing to post on his blog. It stars Derek Lee and Clif Prowse who not only play themselves in the movie but who also wrote and directed the movie together. The heart of the movie starts with Derek’s one night stand with a random woman in Paris and the sequence of events that occur afterward that lead to Derek being completely consumed by a mysterious “affliction”. This movie has a lot of shaky cam, so if that bothers you, you may want to skip it. For all others though, who want to treat themselves to one of the most entertaining movies of its kind, I highly recommend seeking this one out. All I can say is Wow!, what a unique twist on a familiar genre (don't want to give too much away). I loved everything about this movie including the acting and especially the special effects and makeup. It may remind people a little of PA: The Marked Ones but hang with it as it goes in a different direction. So far, this one tops my FTV list this year. Oh, and if you decide to watch this movie, (it’s highly recommended that you do) stay with it through the credits for a nice little extra scene. Thanks for the heads up Darth!!




19. Bedevilled (2010)- {4/5} Blu-ray (FTV) This one is about a woman (Hae-won) from Seoul who is placed on administrative leave from her bank job so she decides to set out for a remote island to visit a friend that she met there during her childhood. When she arrives, she notices that her friend is severely abused and mistreated by her husband and his close family and friends. As her vacation progresses, her friend eventually asks Hae-won to take her and her daughter with her when she goes back to Seoul. She sites the history of abuse as the reason for why she needed to leave. Hae-won balks at the idea, so her friend attempts to leave the island with her daughter on her own. The movie progresses very slowly and even though there are some disturbing things going on (abuse, incest, rape) the movie doesn’t really get going until Hae-won’s friend decides to take matters into her own hands after she and her daughter are severely beaten for trying to leave the island. The subsequent kills are very satisfying and there is a lot of blood spilled as she methodically obtains her revenge. Despite the slow start, this one ends up being quite the experience to watch.
