25. From Beyond (1986)(FTV) - 4.0

Hmmmm, I’m starting to notice a lot of phallic symbolism in the movies I’ve been watching this month. In this case, it was in the form of an overdeveloped, prehensile Pineal gland protruding from the main character’s forehead. The symbolism was initially lost on me, until a female character bit it off and I involuntarily crossed my legs. This movie is another team up of Jeffrey Combs and Stuart Gordon adapting subject matter from an H.P. Lovecraft story. I thought it was great. It had a creeping sense of dread, some good build up, some gross-out gore effects. It didn’t have the frenetic pacing of Re-Animator, but it was still a very enjoyable movie. Oh man, I just looked up Mr. Gordon’s filmography to verify what other Lovecraftian movies of his I had to look forward to, and saw that he directed Robot Jox! I’m going to have to keep an eye out for some of his other movies (possibly excluding Space Truckers and The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit).

26. Dead Snow (2009)(FTV) - 4.0

I’ve been getting pretty abstract in my viewing recently, so I decided to switch over to straightforward zombies. This movie adds a lot to the genre, I think
Spoiler!
. We’re past the point where we need another zombie movie that attempts to show the beginning of the apocalypse, or provide some explanation of why there are zombies. We’re way past the point of having that one dumbass character who doesn’t believe zombies exist (lookin’ at you, Survival of the Dead). This movie took people, put them in a situation that involved zombies, and then watched how they tried to work themselves out of it. Add in some humor, excellent effects and some novel shots like
Spoiler!
. It all adds up to a good time.

Combs is in Would You Rather and you'll probably dig it. Dead Snow is huge shot in the arm for the Zombie genre. If you need more pineal stimulation check out Into The Void and Banshee Chapter. Just don't come crying back here if your ego dies.

#23 The Prince of Darkness, HD. I had to throw in one of my favorite classics for Halloween! This movie is great and I am glad a lot of people are liking this film more and more! College (theoretical physics) students are called in to investigate a container in an abandoned church. Other than that the cast is great and includes guys from Big Trouble in Little China and Alice Cooper! 4.5 Green Ooze Zombies!



#24 Extraterrestrial, FTV This film is pretty good for this newer Alien Abduction genre! Starts out with young adults taking a vacation in a cabin, in the woods. Well there are also 'other' beings on the prey for these people alone in a cabin. Darth said it best in his review but this little movie has it all conspiracy, love, scared young adults and pesky grey aliens! 4 Grey Alien Zombies!




#25, The Den, Netflix streaming HD FTV. I was seeing this movie pop up in this thread so I gave it a whirl! It was pretty good for a slasher flick for this technological generation! Great pacing with the action and for a low budget film it flowed well! It is a somewhat shaky cam movie but it does touch on a lot of situations people today get in, although probably not this kind of situation! 3.5 Web Browsing Zombies!


Some great flicks you guys are watching! Keep up the good work!


Kenobi, hopefully things are going ok out west. I remember you mentioned you were commuting from the Bay Area to Sacto and man I did that drive for a few months and it nearly wiped me out!

20. Stitches (NF Stream, FTV)
I was a little tired and maybe that effects my judgement, but meh. There were a few neat gags, more penis dismemberment following from Teeth and that's about it. The Clown was like a lame Freddy for me with a ton of not funny one-liners. I guess I just expected more from a killer clown. Not sure why?

Quarantine (2008) - English remake of the Spanish film REC.
I felt it was easier to watch the English language remake of Let the Right One In and the same applies here. REC is a fantastic horror film and Manuela Velasco is a sweetheart, but I found Quarantine easier to follow. Maybe it's because I already knew the story of both of these foreign language films before seeing the English remake, I don't know. What I do know is REC/Quarantine as well as Let the Right One In/Let Me In should be seen by all horror film fans. They all score a solid 5 out of 5 with me.

Hi guys. I continue to battle some health problems this month and its got me down mentally. I am not good handling pain, but dont worry, i went to the doctor and got a diagnosis of my leg problems, and its nothing serious and it will go away in time, just dont know when. Bad timing that it hit this month.

However, was up to watching a movie today - 28 WEEKS LATER. Really love this movie, fast moving horrific zombies make for some very frightening scenes. Also love the fact that so much of it takes place in London, and as you guys know i love when horror movies take place in cities rather than out in the woods/desert/etc. Enjoyed this a lot, gave it a 4.25 rating.

Good to hear your legs will be feeling better soon! Also a good beverage can make you feel better! Last week I was stressed out to the core, so my wife made some hot molt wine while watching Tremors! It was a nice relief and it was relaxing all night. Just be sure you aren't up on too many meds!

21. 100 Bloody Acres (FTV)
Three Australian youths on the way to a rural concert festival run into organic fertilizer sellers who need more of their secret ingredient: human bodies. This was an enjoyable horror-comedy with a very Australian sense of humor, and some hilariously over-the-top gore. One of the would-be victims has dropped acid in anticipation of the concert, so he has a hard time taking their predicament all that seriously, leading to many funny situations. A few of the gags are hit-or-miss, but overall you will have a good time watching 100 Bloody Acres.

3.5 out of 5 stars.

I would say one because many of our tribe, don't consider Death Proof to be a horror movie.

Had to Google Daddario. She's the chick from Percy Jackson! Then of course I had to Google her in True Detective. Oh my, I need about 15 minutes seconds of alone time now...

I saw From Beyond in the theater. Haven't seen it since. Will need to revisit it.

Added Dead Snow to my queue.

Watched Deep Rising on DVD. The BD transfer received poor marks so I never upgraded. I have a soft spot for this movie. I really like it and always look forward to watching it. It has a great cast with the right amount of humor and cheese. I do loves me some cheese. Such a fun film.
