Words of Warning: Do NOT try to watch this if you are "imbibing."

I am certain the camera operator for this movie filmed it from a 12 ft. wooden boat....on the ocean....during a hurricane....after drinking a quart of Bushmill's Black Bush....while holding a squirming 2 year old.

A jiggly camera is one thing, but this is a situation where it never stops....ever.
I skipped forward hoping it would stop...it doesn't.

A half an hour and I was literally feeling nauseous and had to shut it down.
It's a shame, because the movie shows promise and may very well have become a good one...as far as slasher films go.


I have this one on hold for October, I may have to pass on it. I'll give it a go but I don't care for shaky cam that much.

I had it set aside as well. Really bums me out because I love the scream queen Melissa George. She is in several favorites of mine, Triangle and 30 Days of Night most of all but Amityville Horror and Turistias were enjoyable as well.

I'll probably still watch this just for her but I had higher hopes.

I was really drawn in, before ejecting at the 40 minute mark.

What could have been a pretty good movie ends up disappointing and annoying viewers.
What is wrong with these people?
The shakey-cam doesn't "enhance" anything here.

The entire trailer looks bouncy but it sure does look good. Maybe after 5 or 6 strong beers it will steady up a bit. This might be a mission for Stone's Arrogant Bastard Ale.

I'm on diabolikdvd.com now browsing for something that will blow my mind this October. There's just too much! This is dangerou$$$.

Maybe its me, but I didn't see Melissa George in that trailer at all.

I'm fairly sure I'll be giving this one a shot. The shaky cam may be an issue, but I have been able to tolerate movies like this in the past.

Give it a try. If you like IPA's, Stone makes one of the best. Oink if you have beer recommendations please post them up over the next few weeks. I'm always looking for new stuff to try especially in October (and November and Decemeber and...).

Only 18 days to go! Where are those lists folks, let's start seeing some titles! We need to maintain a high level of spirit here, Sam is watching.


I'm assuming we are all looking for a strong start so what are you guys opening with? I have yet to settle on one but the titles I'm looking at opening with are as follows:
Isolation
Cold FIsh
Antibodies
The Possession of David O'Reilly (IFC Midnight VOD)

Every time I see Sam it pumps me up! Tonight I started working on the flyer for our kickoff party. Looks like it's going to be Pieces. My pregnant sister-in-law said please no movies where babies are cut from ladies bellys. I promised no one under the age of 12 would be harmed. :evil:

I'll be starting @ 12:01 Friday night and I'm game for checking out any you have listed. Heck I can even stock up on the Red Bull and stay up for 3:01 if I'm in a real wild mood.

Also I think I might take a cue from Edgar Wright and do a mini marathon one Friday night:

Don't Look in the Basement
Don't Go Near the Park
Don't Open the Door

Haven't checked on this thread as much as I should. My daughter's favorite holiday is Halloween and she's intrigued about the concept of a movie a night in October. Any suggestions for something geared toward a nine-year old? Already have "Nightmare Before Christmas" and "Young Frankenstein."

...or should I start a new thread for the parents of young'uns?

Hey Smudge, these could be waaay off base (no kids here) but how about Monster Squad or Gremlins?

While we are waiting for Oct. to begin, I recommend getting caught up on the new series on MTV called Death Valley:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1835129/

I have watched all 3 of the episodes aired so far.
It is absolutely hilarious and very hip.
Think Reno 911! meets Shaun of the Dead meets a "reality" show.

If you are a fan of horror, this show is something you definitely need to check out.

Monster Squad is a must. Poltergeist is PG, and probably the greatest PG horror film ever! Very intense for PG, too!

Realistically though, both of those movies I've mentioned are essentially PG-13. I'd have to watch Poltergeist again, but I'd think that one is definitely ok, even though it probably will give the nine-year old nightmares. Monster Squad has been awhile as well, but that's definitely an older children's horror film. May have some "basic" foul language, but I'd think that should be fine too.

Then again, when I was nine, I was watching Carpenter's Halloween.

Beer is great, but there's one other thing out there that makes movies even better.

ANYWAYS, when I drink, I typically like to go with red wine during movies. Something about a nice glass of red wine is very gulpable for me. Don't even need any bathroom breaks either, but with beer...ugh.

Gremlins and Poltergeist sound like winners.

Stuff we have: Nightmare Before Christmas, The Corpse Bride, Ghostbusters, Beetlejuice, Sleepy Hollow, Wallace & Gromit: Curse Of The Were-Rabbit, The Haunted Mansion, and It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.

Stuff we've seen: Monster Squad, The Frighteners, It, Spiderwick Chronicles, Monster House, Tower of Terror, The Addams Family (and Family Values.)

Love the poster. Posting something like that over her work area would certainly make sure she got her homework done at night.

I was going to suggest avoiding Poltergeist for a 9 year old but if she's done fine with Sleepy Hollow you should be good. Just watch out for the face peeling scene, that might me a bit much for her.

Most of the movies we discuss for Oct here are hard R's but sounds like you have a nice list of titles to watch with her. I'd probably add Hocus Pocus, The Mummy, and Van Helsing

wizzack - Sweet poster, I'll have to check that one out, don't think I've ever seen it. You made me think though it might be fun to designate one week just for 80's horror. I'm not sure how many people I could talk into coming over for horror films but I have company coming over for Star Wars on Friday at least

Definitely Hocus Pocus. And for some reason known only to her, she wants to see "Chucky." She already hates dolls so this won't end well if I got it.

I'm also thinking about renting the classics like Frankenstein, The Mummy, Dracula, et al. Can't appreciate what you have now unless you dance with the one(s) who brought you to the dance.

Cool poster indeed. 80's horror? I was just thinking the same thing while sitting at work looking at options for Horrorfest. I don't have a formal list per say, as I tend to go with the flow. But there are a few for sures that I can name right now.

-House of 1000 Corpses(I haven't decided if this will be reserved for Oct 1 or Oct 31 yet. It will be watched at some point though, because to me, there is no Horrorfest without HOTC)
-Trick or Treat (This is another one that will be in the regular Oct. rotation)
-Pumpkinhead (Can't remember much about this so it'll be good to see it again)
-Dark Night of the Scarecrow
-Insidious (Bought it when it first came out. Was very slightly disappointed but am willing to give it another chance as I was quite intoxicated the 1st time)
-Antichrist (On a recommendation from this forum, I watched this during the winter I believe. Its added to the list so that my wife can see it this time)
-The Commune (Ordered this yesterday based on some very good reviews)
-The Possession of David O'Reilly

others that are in the Blockbuster queue that may or may not make the list:
-Siren
-Jekyll (The BBC series)
-Re-Cycle
-A Horrible Way to Die
-Ginger Snaps (although I tried this last year, and BB kept sending me the sequel rather than the original)
-The Troll Hunter

The rest is up in the air. I have several movies that I already own that I would like to check out again. There are also some great recommendations that have been listed in the thread that I may end up watching.

And just for Fenders, I will most likely give Friday the 13th Pt IV a day in court. Perhaps his recommended choice of spices will need to be implemented to set the mood correctly.


In response to the recommendations for movies that are acceptable for children, I would strongly recommend against Poltergeist. Like someone else mentioned, the face tear and the clown under the bed scene may be too much for a kid to handle.

I still can't believe Poltergeist is rated PG? Holy **** that movie would scare me as an adult! That's crazy!

Good lookin' list so far Apollo.

& Thanks about the poster guys. If you haven't seen Pieces I highly recommend it. Over the top slasher/giallo with crazy kills, b00bies, and anything else you can imagine. Plus one of the greatest endings in horror history. Bananas!

I'll put money that you'll like Part 4! It's totally better than 3, though I still like 3 because it's iconic in that it created the look of Jason, even though it raised the campiness factor up. Part 4 lowered the campiness, and kept all of the iconic scenes in place.

I've already started to create my horrorathon. Sadly, it will just be me most of the time.

Here's what I have marked so far:

A Nightmare on Elm Street / A Nightmare on Elm Street 2
A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 / A Nightmare on Elm Street 4
Friday the 13th Part 1 / Friday the 13th Part 2
Friday the 13th Part 3 / Friday the 13th Part 4
Hellraiser 1/ Hellraiser 2
Monster Squad
Blair Witch Project
Poltergeist
The Exorcist
The Last House on the Left
Fear
Evil Dead 1/ Evil Dead 2
Evil Dead 3 (Army of Darkness)
Price of Darkness
The Fog
John Carpenter's Halloween/ Halloween 2

Some good ones in there Fenders. Especially ANOES 1, F13 1, Blair Witch, Exorcist and TLHOTL (although I have only seen the remake). You also have Fear in there. If it's the one with Reese Witherspoon and Mark Wahlberg, although it's a great movie, it's not really horror. Better described as a thriller.

Yea, Fear is really in there for my friend. He wanted me to add it to the list (one of the few times during the month where I'll have an audience... ), and I was like..."alright." I think I've seen it but can't quite remember anything. I kinda remember it being depressing and not very much fun.

I absolutely hate the remake of LHOTL. It's overly dramatized, tasteless, and really just missed what the original did. The remake will show the entire rape scene. The original only basically implies it, and even gets the point across better about humanity.

-Insidious (Bought it when it first came out. Was very slightly disappointed but am willing to give it another chance as I was quite intoxicated the 1st time)
-Antichrist (On a recommendation from this forum, I watched this during the winter I believe. Its added to the list so that my wife can see it this time)
-The Commune (Ordered this yesterday based on some very good reviews)
-The Possession of David O'Reilly

others that are in the Blockbuster queue that may or may not make the list:
-Siren
-Jekyll (The BBC series)
-Re-Cycle
-A Horrible Way to Die
-Ginger Snaps (although I tried this last year, and BB kept sending me the sequel rather than the original)
-The Troll Hunter

The rest is up in the air. I have several movies that I already own that I would like to check out again. There are also some great recommendations that have been listed in the thread that I may end up watching.

And just for Fenders, I will most likely give Friday the 13th Pt IV a day in court. Perhaps his recommended choice of spices will need to be implemented to set the mood correctly.


In response to the recommendations for movies that are acceptable for children, I would strongly recommend against Poltergeist. Like someone else mentioned, the face tear and the clown under the bed scene may be too much for a kid to handle.

+1!

Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter is my favorite of the franchise. Pumpkinhead is a classic too! I added Pieces to my queue, I'm going to group some 80's flicks together for an 80"s week. I'll include Pieces, Creepshow, Pet Sematary, and An American Werewolf in London for starters.

No formal list here, just a few ideas for some I definitely want to watch during the month. The wife knows of the characters (Freddy, Michael, Jason, Pinhead, Leatherface, etc.) - but hasn't seen many of the movies they're associated with. As such, I'm going to try to watch more of the genre staples (mix of originals and remakes) this year to introduce her to the gang. I haven't had a big issue with any of the remakes, with the exception of ANOES - so they may get more play than a few of the originals:

Halloween (Original)
Halloween II (Original)
Friday the 13th: Part 1
Friday the 13th (Recent)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Recent)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning
Hellraiser 1/2
A Nightmare on Elm Street (Original and maybe a few others...have the whole set)
Maybe the Rob Zombie Halloween remakes if there's time (didn't have a problem with them)

Throw in a few more classics from the 70s/80s and some modern stuff, and I think I'm set. In fact, we may even get a jump start on some of these (won't count, obviously) just to get her up to speed for October.

I will probably rely heavily on Netflix Instant Watch this year, so I'll be sure to indicate which format I viewed. Hopefully this will make it easier to share with folks if I uncover any gems.

I have also toyed with the idea having my wife contribute a few lines to each review. Kind of a "he says, she says". I thought it might be interesting to have my take as a more seasoned, hardcore fan vs. her new, casual viewpoint. We'll see how that works out...

What?
No love for Jeepers Creepers this year?

I caught it the other day on an HD channel.
This MUST be the most disgusting use of DNR...ever.

A damn shame, as I would love to have a great BD of this.

Although a very different movie, I really enjoyed the sequel too.

A.P.S. deserve our protection....join the cause today!

No doubt. Great scene and excellent movie. I remember being pleasantly surprised at how good Wahlberg was in the movie. Basketball Diaries and Boogie Nights (one of my all-time favs) are also good examples of such.

Cool idea. It would probably instigate a few fights, but it would be interesting nonetheless. As it stands for me right now, I normally like to point out my wife's thoughts in my Horrorfest "reviews" but only when she agrees with me

Strangely enough, we actually do have similar tastes in movies (especially horror). She loves HOTC as much as I do and I'm very excited for her to see Antichrist as she is going to love it.
