We are FINALLY starting to cool down up here, after what has probably been our Hottest Summer Ever.
Absolutely ZERO rain all summer long.

I was sorry to hear of the passing of Wes Craven on August 30th! I was going to save 1977's The Hills Have Eyes until October, but I plan to be watching it tonight instead as a tribute. I have never seen this version before and definitely look forward to it.

I've also been working on my list of horror movies to watch in the month of October for the past couple of weeks or so. Right now I am putting together a list of candidates, and to be realistic I have to narrow it down to 20 movies or maybe 25 at the most. The list isn't too bad so far but still some decisions need to be made.

The rule this year is going to be that any and all horror movies that I have recorded on my PVR are going to be watched for sure regardless since I need to start clearing space. Off the top of my head, I think this is about six movies, and luckily most of them were recorded off of commercial-free movie channels. But here is the rest of my list of current candidates (FTV = first time viewing). I guess with 6 movies already being spoken for, I must try to narrow this list down to 14 to 19 movies maximum!:

Axe (2006) FTV
Black X-Mas (remake) FTV
Blood And Chocolate (2007) FTV
Chernobyl Diaries
Deadland FTV
The Devil Bat (1940) FTV
Devil's Due FTV
Dracula A.D. 1972 FTV
Dracula Has Risen From The Grave FTV
The Entity
The Exorcism of Emily Rose FTV
Hellraiser (saw this movie a long time ago)
Insidious - Chapter 2 FTV (loved the first movie!)
Interview With The Vampire FTV
Jaws
Jennifer's Body FTV
Nosferatu FTV
Sharknado 1, 2, 3 (FTV for all)
The Return of the Living Dead FTV
Taste The Blood of Dracula FTV
Zombeavers FTV
Paranormal Activity series (only ever saw the first movie)
Boris Karloff Collection (a set of DVD movies)
Saw series
Nightmare on Elm Street 1, 2, 3, 4 (only ever saw the first one)
Halloween series (or at least cherry-pick a couple of movies)
Friday The 13th parts 1, 2, 3, 4


I guess it's not too bad just yet but I will no doubt be adding a few more items to the list before finalizing it!

Hope this is finding you guys well! It has been a while.

Was that (Centurion) the one with Fassbender?


That does sound like fun!
Yes, Fassbender. He seemed really young in this even though it was a 2010.

No kidding! I think Portland ended up with 26-27 days of 90 degree weather when we normally average 10 or 11 or something like that? Heading over to the Strain and FWD threads...

I recall seeing that and yes he did seem very young!

We had a few small t-storms but they were very brief and everyone knows CA is dry as a martini.

We watched Mad Max Fury Road last in in 3D. Let me just do you all a favor right now, buy this film! What an adrenaline ride! Fantastic 3D conversion and bombastic audio track, really a superb HT popcorn flick.

According to Instantwatcher "Area 51" is the current most popular title on Netflix. And we can look forward to "Portlandia Season 5" later in the month which is weird enough. We know about those Oregonians.

I looked at Phase4's site yesterday. In the past they distributed quite a few horror titles but it looked pretty dismal.

Wouldn't surprise me if studio and distributor marketing divisions are planning for October horror releases this year. Maybe they found September release revenues disappointing. You gotta remember it's like selling shoes.

Huh?
As far as I'm concerned, Area 51 is in the same league as Bigfoot....much ado about nothing.

I think Bigfoot is blurry - that's the problem. It's not the photographers' fault. Bigfoot is blurry. And that's extra-scary to me. There's a large, out-of-focus monster roamin' the countryside. 'Run, he's fuzzy, get out of here.'

Of ALL the things you have ever posted in this forum, this is by far the weakest yet.
