Manage to finish up the Freddys last night and this morning.

32. Freddy vs. Jason (Bluray)
Saw this in the theater and haven't seen it since. My ex went with me, she hates horror movies, and I imagine her complaining about it didn't help my perception at the time. I actually found it better than I remembered. Freddy was somewhere around Part 4 level mix of humor, which is a little bit more than I like but better than 5 and 6. It's hard to believe this just missed the 3D era because many of the CG effects were in your face/come right out at the viewer kind of finishing shots.

33. A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) (Bluray, FTV)
For all the critical panning this one got, I really liked it. Was a remake necessary? No. Can anyone replace Robert Englund, no. Was Rooney remotely as likable/character you gave a **** about as Langenkamp? Hell no.

That said, Jackie Earl Haley did a fantastic job. He was creepy as hell. He honored Englund but definitely gave his own spin and dare I say even added a bit to Freddie's mannerisms in a straight-scare kind of way. There were one liners but more in the vain of the original movie than anything else. They were there for his own sadistic amusement, as the original movie. The movie did go for jump scares, but which NOES movies didn't? There were quite a few here.

The original movie had a lot of happy accidents, like the bed kill and the way the blood splattered/flowed when the room they built rotated due to the weight of all the fluids and when you do your effects in CG that cool element is gone. But what they did was definitely competent compared to the other movies that used CG and by 2010 standards well done.

I think bottom line for me is most of the horror movie remakes have been terrible and offered nothing for fans of the originals. This one was competent, respectful of the source, and managed to retell the story in a modern fashion, tack on some fresh elements, without ruining what made the original special.

I've got two more planned for tonight after trick or treating which will get me to 35. Not bad.

It got a bit chilly here so the kid called the TrT early. So we fired up some chili, put her to bed, and watched Would You Rather. Wife is digging it. It's been a blast but I'm looking forward to some comedy this weekend.

Spoiler!
Awesome pic! Looks like something out of candy magazine photo shoot. At my house those Reese's Peanut Butter Cups magically disappear. "Dad, where did all my Reese's go? And why do you have chocolate and peanut butter on your face?" "Ummm..."

Well, it was a great night fellas. While we were upstairs doling out candy to the kids, RZ's Halloween came on IFC, so we kicked the night off with that one. Later, after some issues with DirecTV, we watched Babadook and closed out the night with Trick r Treat. Babadook is an awesome movie, guys. Definitely a must see.


Final reviews and thoughts coming later. Once again, thanks to everyone for participating.

Future Diabetics of America?

I finished off the 31 days with "LFO", the Swedish dark comedy sci-fi movie. It was a hoot and has some good laughs in it as the "experiment" the amateur acoustics engineer does on his new neighbors begins to spin out of control. I'm betting this will show up on Netflix WI in about a month. Four sound remotes.

Here's the last review for the month, it was an awesome run again this year guys! Thanks for helping me make some great discoveries, sharing your thoughts, and putting up with my long-winded analyses.

31. The Battery (FTV)
Two former pro baseball players cope with the day-to-day isolation and mundaneness of living in the new post-zombie apocalypse America. Really loved this movie, it has a great indie-film feel while remaining funny and occasionally profound. Rather than concentrating on matters of physical survival, this is the rare zombie film that explores the psychological and emotional bereavement of those who are still alive, making new micro-societies that are by necessity short-lived and suspicious of one another. The film is enlivened by the differences between the two characters: the pitcher who is an idealist who isn't ready to let go of the old world, and the catcher who is a survivor-pragmatist but a bit of a boorish caveman type. The first wants to just settle down and be normal again, the second wants to keep moving forward, running away as a way of life. Despite their differences, both are united by their love of a now-extinct sport, and their social need for each other. Those who'd like to see a completely different take on the zombie genre who value characters over repetitious gore will enjoy this one. "Old Joy" meets "The Walking Dead".

4.5 out of 5 stars.

Friday night I watched Deliver Us From Evil. All the criteria were in place. Home, check. Awake, check. Odds of being called into work, nil And it was a dark rainy night (Surprise they predict rain in So Cal and it actually does).
The film itself takes a while to get going. Once it does, it turns into Seven crossed with an exorcism movie with a touch of Prince of Darkness. By the end of the film you will have been confronted with the idea what is evil, where does it really come from. The exorcism is pretty powerful when it comes around. If you watch this on Blu Ray take time to watch the supplementals it's worth your time, Glad I bought it.
Watched an episode of Hannibal after that. Not a bad night after a sort of crazy month.

That's why you get the Reeses pieces instead of the cups, then you can always use the E.T. defense when accused

Horror Movie Marathon 2014 - Reviews:


Poltergeist (1982) - I felt compelled to kick things off this year with this movie because I remember it as being the first memorable horror movie that I ever watched in my life. I was just 11 years old when I saw this for the first time, and when I saw it, the special effects were still cutting-edge. This movie had me questioning whether I still wanted a television in my bedroom anymore and the story had a deep impact. As I was watching this again, it gave me chills thinking about how it affected me when I was young. 5 out of 5.

Poltergeist II - The Other Side (1986) - I originally saw this in theaters when it came out and have to admit that I was disappointed at the time. In retrospect, I think a lot of my disappointment had to do with the brilliance of the first movie and how this movie went in a totally different direction than I was expecting. I did re-watch it about 7 or 8 years ago, and while my impression improved somewhat, I still wasn't totally impressed. Fast forward to now and I really don't think it is a bad movie at all. No, not as good as the first movie, but a respectable second installment especially considering the change in director. 3.25 out of 5.

Poltergeist III (1988) - Not quite as good as the first two movies, and totally missing Craig T. Nelson and JoBeth Williams, but still not bad. Suffers from some of the cliches of 1980's horror movies and has something of a (good) cheese factor, but still an okay movie and also better than I remember it. The whole thing with the highrise works and the story is alright. Glad they were able to finish this before Heather O'Rourke passed away. 3 out of 5.

Evil Dead (2013) - Pure horror! Though not too deep, I was quite surprised at how good this remake is. The gore factor is pretty heavy too. Definitely a must-watch if you have not seen it before. Be sure to watch the credits to the end. 4.25 out of 5.

Atom Age Vampire (1960) - I went into this expecting something of a bomb, and the review ratings on IMDB would have you believe as such, but I thought this was pretty good low-budget B-horror typical of the 1950s and 60s. More sci-fi than horror for a good portion of the movie but then the horror elements surface more as the movie goes along. The strongest part of this movie is how well the story is put together. A woman is disfigured in a car accident and ends up seeing a scientist who promises to restore her appearance as though the accident never happened. How will the treatments go? What complications will ensue? Watch and find out! 3.25 out of 5.

Werewolf In A Girl's Dormitory (1961) - Another B movie from the 1960's, in this one, a professor arrives at a boarding school for troublesome girls and shortly thereafter an intern at the school who is attempting to blackmail another teacher is murdered. Her death is deemed to be caused by a wolf and a murder mystery soon ensues as other deaths occur. Again not a bad movie, very story-driven, but nothing scary or special. Perhaps worth seeing once. 2.5/5

The Werewolf of Washington (1973) - A reporter in Europe on his way back to the United States gets into a car crash on the way to the airport. Unfortunate events ensue and he is bitten by a werewolf. He returns to the U.S. and is given a position as a press assistant to the President. Soon things start to unravel but I can't say much more than that. I will say that even though it is low-budget, I had some fun with this movie and even a couple of laughs. It has a pretty decent ending too. Be sure to watch this one to the end of the credits. 3 out of 5.

Moon of the Wolf (1972) - This one is definitely a slow burn, the first half of the movie deals with the sheriff investigating a murder that is out of the ordinary. When some action finally does happen, not much actually occurs, but the final 20% of the movie is where things start to really pick up. I can't fault the story, the movie is interesting in certain ways, but too little really happens and this mostly fails to deliver on the horror side of things. 2.25 out of 5.

The Shining (1980) - Here's Johnny! What more can I say? Though I am not quite in the perfect 5 camp with this movie, it is very well crafted and put together with great pacing. The last time I saw this movie was on a tube television so it was nice to see it on my 55 inch screen in high definition as well as the 1.85:1 aspect ratio which filled the screen. 4.25 out of 5.

The Changeling (1980) - After a composer's family is killed in a tragic accident, he moves away and rents out an old mansion run by a local historical society in hopes of being able to write music and engage with local musicians. He gets far more than he bargains for renting the old house. A pretty decent haunted house story and the final ten minutes of the film are especially well done. 3.75 out of 5.

The Mist (2007) - Following a storm, a strange and thick mist consumes a town where terrors bound within. Local citizens trapped in a supermarket by this threat look for solutions of how to solve the problem. This movie didn't quite grab me as well as I'd hoped but it does do a fairly good job in the suspense department and has a few scares. Does have a decent ending. 2.75 out of 5.

Exorcist movie series (various dates) - I watched all five movies in this set in one day, Exorcist - The Beginning, Dominion - Prequel to the Exorcist, then the original 1973 Exorcist, then Exorcist II, then finally Exorcist III. The movies are something of a mixed bag with Exorcist II being the weakest and the original Exorcist being the best. I felt that Exorcist - The Beginning was the best of the two prequels. Exorcist III was a passable final entry in the series.

Event Horizon (1997) - Set in the future, a search and rescue ship is sent out to the planet Neptune to investigate another spaceship by the name of Event Horizon which vanished seven years earlier but has now suddenly returned. When they arrive, horrors abound and never seem to end. A little dated now but still a very good science fiction horror that kept me glued to my seat from beginning to end. 4 out of 5.

1408 (2007) - A skeptic author who debunks and discredits ghostly phenomenon ends up staying in Room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel despite warnings from the manager not to do it due to numerous deaths occuring in that room over the years. Though this movie didn't interest me as much as I thought it would in the first half and generally left me with some feelings of sadness in parts, things really picked up nicely in the second half and the main character was left wondering what is real and what is not. Reminded me of another movie called Jacob's Ladder in that respect. 3 out of 5.

My Bloody Valentine (2009) - I won't get too much into the story and outline of this movie since it would be a little complicated but will leave some of my impressions. Although somewhat predictable (although not entirely), the movie does a good job in the second half creating tension and suspense and leaves you guessing. The gore factor is also pretty decent. 3.5 out of 5.

The Birds (1963) - Very worthwhile! Melanie Daniels heads to a community called Bodega Bay to return a practical joke on a lawyer who spoofed her the day before. Not long after she arrives, birds including seagulls and crows start to attack the townsfolk and the attacks intensify as the film progresses. This film did a good job of holding my interest throughout and had a few well done key scenes. I really liked the sound effects of the birds themselves. 4 out of 5.

The Mummy (1932) - Archaeologists in Egypt in 1921 unearth a Mummy...and a curse. Not scary by any means but reasonably enjoyable with a good story. 3.5 out of 5.

The Invisible Man (1933) - A chemist secretly works on an experiment to turn himself invisible but one of the ingredients unknowingly also turns him mad. He soon has visions of power and money and terrorizes local townsfolk. Not without a few holes and a little freaky but very well done for a movie this old. Certainly better than some much newer movies based on the same concept. 3.75 out of 5.

Phantom of the Opera (1943) - A violinist is dismissed from the Paris Opera and suffers other misfortunes. He comes back to "haunt" the opera house in ways I won't describe. More of a murder mystery than anything, but well put together. I don't even really like opera but I admit that I enjoyed the plays in the movie. 3.75 out of 5.

Grave Encounters (2011) - A "found footage" movie. A paranormal investigation team checks out a mental hospital closed since the 1960's for episode six of their television show. Previously at other locations they never encountered anything real but things change when they go into this hospital! While there are better horror movies out there, I was impressed by the fact that this movie did put a small number of genuine scares into me and gave me goosebumps at other times and I say this because few horror movies at this point have such an effect on me anymore. I was sure to watch this with no lights turned on and the volume turned up. Definitely recommended to anyone who has not seen it before. 3.5 out of 5.

Pontypool (2008) - A radio station begins to report a riot happening in a small town community but it turns out to be something much bigger. Although I wasn't a big fan of this, the story was good and the approach to this movie is a unique take on the zombie genre. I give them credit for originality! 3 out of 5.

House of Wax (1953) - Business partners in a wax museum are at odds and soon thereafter the museum burns down with one of the partners apparently still inside. Soon thereafter, murders take place. The outcome is more or less predictable early on, and it doesn't have much of an actual scare factor, but it is a pretty good murder mystery movie with horror overtones. Vincent Price stars. 3.75 out of 5.

Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933) - Essentially an older and less detailed version of 1953's House of Wax but still perfectly serviceable and interesting enough. 3.25 out of 5.

Phantasm (1979) - I wasn't sure what to make of this at times, but at other times things got interesting. All said and done, it came together well enough and I can conclude that this is a reasonably good movie that is also both weird and fun at times. The Tall Man is an unusual and welcome change from the main villains you normally see in horror movies. 3.25 out of 5.

Insidious (2010) - A family moves into a house and strange and disturbing events which cannot be explained start happening. Things take an unexpected turn about halfway through the movie but that's about all I will say about the story. But wow! Not too many horror movies these days genuinely scare me but this one was very effective, even more so than Grave Encounters. Even after the movie ended, I still found myself with goosebumps and raised hairs on my arms for a while afterwards. Yes it is guilty of some jump scares, but the feeling of tension, suspense, and terror was amplified further with effective use of music and sound effects. This movie is a little thin in parts but definitely very impressive overall with a very high scare factor in my books. Normally I would rate a movie like this a 4 but since it did a fantastic job of scaring me, I have to award this movie a 4.5 out of 5.

Sinister (2012) - A writer of true crime books moves his family to a house where murders previously took place to start his investigation for his next book. Of course, strange and unexplained events happen with the movie largely centering on some old film footage found in the house. Although this film is creepy and does a lot of things right as things slowly come together, it didn't really grab me too much. There are some good moments and the ending is decent, so I can't explain why I didn't like it more, but I still award it a 2.5 out of 5.

Pandorum (2009) - A pair of crew members awaken on a ship sent on a deep space mission. When they awaken, they have little to no memory of their mission or how long they were out for or where they are. They also quickly discover that other crew members are missing. Horrors await. Not the greatest movie by any means, but too bad, it was able to hold my interest just enough, and the dread of the situation soon becomes apparent to the viewer. Does have some jump scares but also gets you thinking of how it would be if you were in their shoes. Has a decent and unexpected ending. 3 out of 5.

Horror of Dracula (1958) - A man by the name of Jonathan Harker travels to Dracula's castle after being hired as the new librarian, but his real intention is to kill Count Dracula. What ensues is an unfortunate series of events, and as you might expect, Doctor Van Helsing plays a prominent role in this movie. Typical of classic horror films, this movie is not at all scary but is strong in the story department and offers some well done scenes and settings. This Hammer Horror movie features Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. Worthwhile. 3.5 out of 5.

Silver Bullet (1985) - Deaths start occurring in a small town. At first accidents are suspected, then a serial killer, but a disabled child with a souped-up motorized wheelchair begins saying it is a werewolf responsible for the murders and is initially met with resistance. A pretty decent werewolf movie and one of the better Stephen King movie adaptations that I have seen. For sure worth seeing. 3.75 out of 5.

Halloween III - Season of the Witch (1982) - This has remained a favorite horror movie of mine since I first saw it many years ago. Featuring a good story as well as music and sound effects, it is truly something of a cult classic with a cheese factor that I find irresistible. Who can forget such things as the main villain Conal Cochran and his persona, the homeless drunk, the gas station attendant, the "misfire", and of course those Silver Shamrock commercials! For me this movie is pretty much required viewing at least once every two to three years in October. Most people would probably think I am cooked for saying this, but I rate it 5 out of 5.

The Fog (1980) - A seaside town celebrating its centennial falls victim to a strange glowing fog where horrors abound within. Nothing complicated here, just a good pirate-curse type of movie that finishes in a nice and tidy 89 minutes. 3.5 out of 5.

Annabelle (2014) - A man purchases a doll for his pregnant wife who needs it to complete a set but soon afterwards a bad event befalls the couple. This leads to a chain of more unfortunate events with the doll being the centerpiece of the trouble. Good movie, has some jump scares but offers credible tension and suspense as well. I had goosebumps a few times while watching this. 3.5 out of 5.

Pet Sematary (1989) - A family moves to a small town where tragedy soon follows. A special cemetery with certain powers is nearby and the father ends up doing something unthinkable more than once. This movie offers a few small nuggets in the first half but takes a while to really get going. When it does, the events are shocking, disturbing and gruesome all while offering the quirkiness that you might expect from a Stephen King movie. 3.25 out of 5.

The People Under The Stairs (1991) - A family living in a badly run down apartment in the ghetto face eviction for non-payment of rent and the mother of the family is suffering from cancer. A criminal-type family friend learns of possible valuable coins inside a house that is owned and occupied by the landlord which of course they end up checking out to help with the family's predicament. The landlord's home turns out to be a real house of horrors. I felt this movie was a little better than average, it wasn't what I was expecting and neither were the people under the stairs in the house, but it is a mix of action, horror and some comedy that works reasonably well enough. 3 out of 5.

The Wolf Man (1941) - This classic is about a man who after an extended absence returns home to his father but ends up getting bit by a werewolf not long afterwards. Of course, he himself then turns into a werewolf and goes on something of a killing spree. Well acted and engaging throughout, the mystery of the murders are soon enough revealed. 4 out of 5.

Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man (1943) - Pretty decent loose follow-up to 1941's The Wolf Man, this involves Larry Talbot coming back to life complete with the werewolfism that he suffered from in life. Deaths inevitably result and soon Frankenstein's Monster comes into the fray. Not quite as good as The Wolf Man but still good in the story-telling department and the gypsy woman makes a return in this film also. 3.5 out of 5.

She-Wolf of London (1946) - A different twist on the typical werewolf tale with the werewolf of the movie being a woman. Very story-driven although the actual werewolf scenes themselves are a disappointment. This film does have a good scenery as well as a decent ending with a couple of unexpected twists, but ultimately there are better choices for classic werewolf movies. 3 out of 5.

Werewolf of London (1935) - A doctor travels to Asia in search of a rare flower that will help cure werewolfism. When he returns to London, he ends up having good reason to search vigorously for a cure but in the process strains his relationship with his wife and other people. This movie is pretty much typical of classic werewolf movies, well done in the story department, a few werewolf scenes and a good ending, but no real surprises. 3.5 out of 5.

The Wolfman (2010) - This film mostly has the same basic main principles and ideas behind it as 1941's The Wolf Man, but with a twist in the relationship between two of the main characters. A very good movie with great scenery and a gothic-like feel which also expands on many elements as the classic 1941 movie. 4 out of 5.

The Devil's Rejects (2005) - Set in the late 1970's in Texas, this bizarre film pits the police against the infamous Firefly family who are responsible for more than 75 murders. A sometimes violent and gruesome movie, this one has a lot of things going on...nudity, action, kidnappings, sadism, you name it. Definitely much different than anything else I have seen this month but still an okay movie. Not for everyone. 3 out of 5.

House of 1000 Corpses (2003) - A pair of young couples traveling the U.S. in search of bizarre places and museums and the like for a book they plan to write end up looking for a legend by the name of Dr. Satan. They end up in the house of a family where they are subject to all sorts of horrors. Again definitely different than your average horror flick but good for what it is. 3.5 out of 5.

The Lords of Salem (2012) - A radio DJ receives a strange package containing an even weirder record inside and ends up experiencing all sorts of dreams and visions as she slowly but surely slips more and more into madness over the course of a week. I didn't think this was a bad movie. 3.25 out of 5.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) - A strange flower is discovered and soon people start to notice that other people they know aren't quite themselves anymore. At first there are doubters but it soon becomes an epidemic and the horror of what is really going on eventually comes to light. Brooke Adams looks great in this film and having Leonard Nimoy amongst the cast was a pleasant surprise to me. 3.5 out of 5.

Well that's it for me guys for another year, it was a blast watching so many horror movies this past month but I also look forward to getting back into other genres again now (last night I watched Under Siege with Steven Seagal). I'll stick around here for a bit longer and will pop in from time to time afterwards, but I will be looking forward to next October! I still have several unwatched horror movies in my own collection but I should by then have a NetFlix subscription for sure and that will add to my available selection. Thanks to everyone here for their reviews, humor, insights and recommendations, I really enjoyed and appreciated it!

A picture tells a thousand words, or is that 10,000 calories?

My nine year old was out for 3+ hours with some friends and then did a sleepover. By the time she got home Saturday she still had 250+ pieces of candy in her bag.

Surprisingly, after getting little rest at the sleepover and walking around all Friday night, she still had a lot of energy for her soccer game on Saturday. The POWER OF CHOCOLATE.

Final reviews and thoughts coming later. Once again, thanks to everyone for participating.
With the little one out of the house Friday we just did door duty for trick r treaters and picked from the plethora of horror movies on tv. Tales of the crypt - Bordello of blood. This was laughingly trashy with a good amount of gore and Nancy nipple, yet the tone felt more like made for tv. Dennis Miller, whoopi Goldburg, Angie Everheart and a bunch of other recognizable actors. I give it 3 1990's Zombies.

Will have my awards next week.

I watched Battle Royale last night on Netflix Wi. Not typical Horror (lots of blood/violence though) but school kids are on a island and only one will be 'free' to leave the island. Good stuff and the Japanese rarely disappoint in the violence arena!

I finished the month strong. I didn’t get to as many movies this year as last, and it feels like I accomplished far less (probably because my list was too big this year). I didn’t get around to any Fulci, I didn’t revisit as many favorites as last year and I found myself getting a lot more tired over the course of the month. I’m considering not adding to my watch list until I get what’s in there cleared out. Anyway, went trick-or-treating on Friday. It was snowing, which allowed us to wrap it up much more quickly than normal. It still wasn’t an early night, but I was not going to let Halloween come and go without at least making an attempt at getting a final movie in. The wife was passed out on the couch before it even started, and I was fighting to stay focused throughout, but we made it.

I tried watching it a year ago but oink'd it. Wasn't grabbing me that night for some reason. My oldest daughter had to read the book for a high school class and the whole class really got into it. It was funny to hear her talking about certain kids they were rooting for and the ones that got killed.

I was hoping to get Witching and Bitching in for Octoberfest but it did not show up until Saturday. Got it in last night and is a lot of fun. They balanced a lot of humor with action and horror pretty well. Carolina Bang was a big presence in the movie and the sheer magnitude of the sets, and extras, was impressive. You just don't get American horror movies with these kinds of practical affects and size of scope.

The audio is alot of fun on this as well.

This movie has -
Gun toting 5th grader
A hand in a toilet
A big eater
Bunch of catty, divorced men
A happy ending

4 eternal she Zombies

RZ's Halloween was like that for me, but I kept on falling asleep when I watched it! Watching BR is a bit sadistic because of the killing of school kids, but it brings up a good point about kids that refuse to respect authority/run amok should have some kind of punishment brought on them. Whether or not these bad kids should be put on an island to kill each other as a form of punishment is a different story.


I finished up Witching and Bitching last week and it was a really fun movie! The dialog between the guys is hilarious!

Glad I found this thread this year and will be returning next year.

This Halloween the GF and I spent more time going to random haunted attractions around the area. Some amazing ones in PA, so we would drive out there on Sunday's to beat the crazy lines. Had a BLAST!

Halloween night we ended up watching The Taking of Deborah Logan. My god, what a hidden little gem. I have NEVER jumped so much in a movie! Great way to end Halloween. :c)
